Andalou Naturals Hyaluronic DMAE LIFT AND FIRM CREAM

I had been using the Andalou Naturals Purple Carrot night cream and really loved it. But I ran out and it was winter so I decided to switch to a thicker formula. ERMAHGURD. I am so glad I tried it. … Continue reading

Blum Naturals Facial wipes

I only use a face wipe about once a week. I would never substitute using one of them instead of washing my face. However, sometimes I’m really lazy or its in the middle of the day when I want to take make up off.
I like a wipe that’s a decent size, wet but not dripping. And I like a bit of texture. Not exfoliating, but not baby but smooth either.
These fit the bill. And they smell nice. Nothing over powering, but a nice light floral scent.
Did I mention there are 30 wipes, not 25 or 28. You get a full months worth (If used daily). And they have different scents for different skin types or issues. Oh and they are cruelty free.

As for quality, I haven’t had a problem. They take off all my face make-up and most of my eye makeup. If I don’t use water proof, almost all of it comes off without a problem. I don’t have to tug or rub to hard. And they have a flip top closure to keep them moist. I’ve had one open for over two months and it’s not dried out. But I make sure to close it properly. I would totally repurchase.

One of my most favorite scents is anything with mint. Eucalyptus and mint, citrus and mint and of course rosemary and mint.
When I first opened this up, ahhhh it was so refreshing. Defiantly more mint than rosemary. Which is fine by me. But if you want a more herbals scent with a hint of mint. This might not be for you.
This stuff is THICK. I would not use this as a body butter. I use it as a hand and foot cream, and love it. I don’t have dry skin, but I wash my hands quite a bit every day, and touch EVERYTHING. So my hands do tend to get a bit dry a couple of times a day. With this being so rich and creamy, my hands stay moisturized easily for 3 hours. It would work longer but I tend to get my hands wet that often.
If you have really dry skin, this might be great. It does take a minute to work into the skin. After its soaked in, it’s not greasy or coating? For winter this would be wonderful.

The ingredients are great too. Mostly Organic, and from what I can see vegan too. And Deep Steep is a cruelty free brand. And can I mention how cute Deep Steeps packaging it. I’ll defiantly be buying more from them. They have this scent in a lotion that I would like to get, and a moisture stick that intrigues me.

Andalou Naturals : Super Goji Peptide Perfecting Cream

I LOVE this day cream. I think it’s a day cream. I have normal skin, and it’s not too light or to thick for me. Worked fine all through a Florida summer and still working fine for fall.

I’ve used this every morning for the past 2 months. I have noticed a slight difference for the better in my skins texture and brightness.
I’ve also noticed my skin during the day is a more constant moisture level. If that makes any sense.
I use this after I wash/rinse my face and use a vitamin C serum. It does take a minute to work into the skin. Nothing overly annoying. I have tried some natural lotions that take 3 times as long to work into the skin. However, once its sunk in, it’s not sticky or greasy. You’re left with smooth silky feeling skin. I don’t have sensitive skin, but it does turn red easy. I have had no sensitivity to this.

This is a semi light weight cream. If I put this on my fingers or hand, it will start sliding.

Soaks up really nice. No weird residue or white cast. Now, I drink a lot. I always have water, iced coffee or some juice on hand. ALWAYS drinking something. So my skin is really hydrated. On certain days when my skin is extra hydrated. It kind of feels like something in it doesn’t sink in 100%, but still not a residue or oily. It might just be my skin acting different on different days. Doesn’t affect my makeup or anything. (Please ignore the weird bruise thing and mark) This cream did not do that.

I really like the packaging too. Dark bottle to protect the vitamin c that’s in it. Smells great. Fruity? What I really think it smells like it the Strawberries and Cream instant oatmeal from Quaker. Brought back memories.

I would totally repurchase this cream.
