Petal Purity Facial Cleanser – $16 (100ml) For All Skin Types
Using a cream cleanser like this one, is a pleasant change from your normal soapy type facial cleansers. It’s like washing your face with silk. The Petal Purity Facial Cleanser has a very calming light scent of lavender and geranium.
My skin feels deeply cleansed and yet hydrated at the same time. I still use a good moisturizer afterwards though. Having somewhat sensitive skin, that dries out easily and gets irritated sometimes, this cream cleanser has worked wonderfully and has left my skin feeling great.
Orange Blossom Facial Toner – $20 (100ml) For Oily Skin
I like that this toner is alcohol free and very gentle. Made with hydrosol (water) extracted from Orange Blossoms, which purifies and refines pores. I use this daily and I love it. It has a light citrus scent and leaves my skin feeling cool and refreshed.
Orange Blossom Facial Cream – $40 (100ml) For Oily Skin
This is an anti-aging facial cream packed with botanical sources of vitamins and antioxidants that nourish and hydrate your skin. controlling oil and minimizing pores. It feels really good going on and it gives my skin a nice glow.
I haven’t been using it long enough to get a really good feel for the long term results, but from what I’ve used so far, I really like it. I love that it’s a lighter cream, but that it moisturizes like a thicker cream without that heavy greasy feeling. It soaks into my skin fairly quick. A little definitely goes a long way with this one.
Ancient Mud: $24 (100g) Not for Highly Sensitive Skin
I wouldn’t say I have extremely sensitive skin, but I have used a few different mud masks where my skin felt tingly and became a little red and “warmer” than usual after having the product on for just a few minutes. I’m not sure the experience I had was the same with this mask because it was really pulling the toxins and pollutants out of my skin like it says it will? No biggie really, it didn’t hurt or anything. Just a strange sensation is all.
I like the simplicity of this mask. Apply it to moist skin once a week, leave it on until it turns a light green, rinse off and follow with a facial cleanser and moisturizer. The smell of Floral and marine isn’t crazy appealing, but it’s not horrible either.
The texture is watery and creamy at the same time. I feel like this mask did do a great job at clearing my skin of all the bad stuff. I don’t think it reduces pore size, at least not mine, but with continued use it’s possible. My skin does feel tighter and more smoother after using this product.
