Econibella Giveaway Products Review!

Image

 

Hello everyone! Today, I will be doing a review on a few fabulous beauty goodies that I won from an Econibella Instagram giveaway a couple of month ago. If you’re looking for a gentle eye cream, a rejuvenating toner, or a moisturizing cleanser, this review is perfect for you!

Image          The first product I will be reviewing is the Honey Girl Organics- Face and Eye Cream.  This cream is said to deliver “moisturizing results with natural raw honey and organic extra virgin olive oil.” It is can be used to “reduce fine lines” and to “soften, moisturize, and repair skin”. This crème boasts some amazing ingredients, such as organic extra virgin olive oil, beeswax with pollen, raw Pupukea Honey, royal jelly, and vitamin E. Based on my experience this crème really delivers! I have used this product under my eyes every day for about a month and have noticed a huge improvement in the texture of my skin. Not only does my skin feel softer, but I’ve noticed that a few really fine lines around my eyes have gone away. This crème is easy to apply and has a very light, flowery scent, which is perfect for those who don’t like strong scents.  The only con about this product is that it does take awhile to sink in. It is therefore, important to only use a small amount of product and to put it on at least 30 minutes before going to bed. Overall Rating -5/5

Image          Another product that captured my attention was the Honey Girl Organics- Facial Cleanser and Makeup Remover. It is said to remove “makeup and dirt without stripping the skin of its natural oils” and is made of nontoxic ingredients, such as organic extra virgin oil, beeswax, and Pupukea Honey. This cleanser has a very creamy consistency and much like the Face and Eye Cream, has a very light flowery scent. I like to massage it into my face and then remove it with a cleansing towel. Afterwards, my face feels very soft and hydrated for hours! Also, this cleanser does a fabulous job at removing all of my makeup, including waterproof mascara. I not only love how amazing the results are, but I also love the price of this cleanser. It only costs $19.49 for a 4 ounce bottle.  This is a total steal because not only are you getting a product made of wholesome ingredients, but you are also getting great results too!  The only negative I really found about this product is that you must use some sort of gritty towel to remove it; otherwise, you will be left with an oily film of the product on your face. It’s definitely not something you can just rinse off with your hands.  In addition, it’s important to shake the product really well before using it because it tends to separate. Overall Rating- 4.5/5

Yet another Honey Girl Organics product worth mentioning is their Facial Toner. The toner “invigorates and purifies” skin and “softens and clears the complexion”.  It consists of skin friendly ingredients, including organic witch hazel, and propolis, rose and neroli essential oils.  The scent of this toner is simply divine! Putting this on feels a lot like stepping into a flower garden as you can definitely smell the rose and neroli oils. The scent stays on your skin for about 30 minutes or so, keeping your senses awake! Apart from the smell of this toner, I also love how it does a good job at removing any makeup I might have missed while cleansing. In addition, it makes my skin feel very soft and it only costs $19.49 for four ounces. It’s a great product for those who want to a luxurious toner while being on a budget. Overall Rating- 4.5/5

The last product that I would like to review is the Kenza Pure SPA Bar Soap. This is a new product from the line that is not sold separately on the Econibella website yet. However, you can purchase it in this Kenza set here. This soap contains some unique ingredients, such as crushed argan nut shells, neroli oil, and Prickly Pear Seed oil.  It can be used as both a facial soap and body soap. It has a lovely neroli scent and the crushed nut shells in it do a good job at exfoliating skin. In addition, this soap is also very moisturizing and makes my skin feel soft. I wish I had a bigger size of this soap since I used up my sample very quickly! Overall Rating- 5/5

If you would like to purchase any of the wonderful products mentioned in this review be sure to check out the Econibella website! I would also like to give a special thanks to Bellina Tse for hosting the giveaway and for giving me the opportunity to try out all of the goodies I mentioned!

Review: Josie Maran- Argan Infinity Cream Intensive Creamy Oil

Hello my lovelies! Today I will be doing a review on the Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream. I am a huge fan of the Josie Maran line and have been following it since it first appeared at Sephora stores. The line is eco-friendly and supports some great organizations, such as the City of Hope Cancer Center. In addition, every Josie Maran product has argan oil as an ingredient. The oil is great for your skin because it is chock full of antioxidants and minerals. The Argan Infinity Cream features argan oil among several other great ingredients such as, shea butter and avocado oil, to hydrate and condition your skin. According to the official product description, this product “delivers all the moisturizing benefits of argan oil in a portable, nongreasy, creamy oil form. The innovative formula starts as a cream and melts into an oil, making your complexion more luminous while tightening facial contours and preventing inflammation. Use it to hydrate and gently soothe undereyes, smooth flyaways, keep eyebrows in place, and condition lips. Mix it with powder blush or eye shadow to instantly transform it into a cream.”

Ingredients: Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil**, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) Fruit**, Coco-Caprylate/Caprate**, Beeswax**, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter)**, Glyceryl Dibehenate**, Tribehenin**, Glyceryl Behenate**, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil**, Tocopherol, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Kernel Oil*, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil**, Abyssinian Oil (Crambe Abyssinica) Seed Oil**, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil**, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Extract**, Soybean Glycerides**, Linoleic Acid**, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil** Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter**, Aleurites Moluccana Seed (Kukui Nut) Oil**, Macadamia Ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil**. *Organic. **Natural.

How to Use: This product has many uses and here are a couple of them.

-Deeply moisturize dry areas of the face.
-Soothe irritated skin caused by rosacea, wind, or sunburn.
-Soften elbows, heels, and other rough patches.
-Keep stray eyebrows in place.
-Smooth flyaways.
-Moisturize at night.
-Prevent razor burn and irritation.

How I Use It: I like to use this as a body moisturizer and as a lip balm before I go to bed. Also, I sometimes use this as an anti-frizz cream on my hair!

Pros:

  • This smells sooo good! It has a light sweet orange scent that’s very refreshing and invigorating.
  • You only need to use a little bit of the product per application. I only use a pea sized amount of this to moisturize my hands and to moisturize both my legs I use about a nickel-sized amount.
  • It’s so versatile! You can use it to keep your eyebrows in place or mix it with powder eyeshadow to create a cream eyeshadow.
  • It is very moisturizing. If I put this on at night I wake up with soft skin! It also really helps with frizzy hair days!
  • It’s small in size and fits perfectly into my purse, making it perfect for traveling.

Cons:

  • The consistency is a bit off. The oil separates from the rest of the ingredients and comes out of the tube first followed by the cream part. Storing the product upright helps a little!
  • It takes a long time to sink it. I have to wait 30 minutes to an hour and that’s frustrating!
  • The price. It costs $28.00 for 2.2 fluid ounces.
  • It’s very thick and oily and I’m afraid to put this on my sensitive, acne prone facial skin, however this may be okay for people who have dry skin.

Time Used Before Review: 3 to 4 times a week for 1 month.

Overall Rating: 4/5

Where to buy: The Josie Maran Website and at Sephora.

Review: Sequoia Beauty- Honey Berry Enzyme Mask

Hola! Today I will be doing a review on my current favorite facial mask- the Honey Berry Enzyme Mask by Sequoia Beauty. I ordered this mask about a month ago and have been hooked on it ever since. According to the company’s website“Sequoia Beauty is an organic flower and herb based skin care line with an emphasis on local ingredients. The products cater to the needs of your skin, as well as your own physical and spiritual well-being.” The mask fits perfectly in the company’s motto! It contains several great ingredients, such as raw honey, an antiseptic and moisturizer, and royal jelly, an ingredient known for its anti-aging properties. Check out the full ingredient list and my list of product pros and cons below!

Image

Ingredients: Raw Honey, Raw Royal Jelly, Raw Strawberries, Raw Blueberries, and White Grapefruit Essential Oil

Application Instructions: Put on clean skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes.

How I apply it: 10-15 minutes? #PUHLEASE I leave this deliciousness on for a full hour! When I rinse it off I like to first wet my hands and rub my face in circular motions. This mask has strawberry and blueberry grains in it that act as exfoliates.

Pros:

  • The smell! This smells so sweet and honey like!
  • After I take it off my skin feels so soft and moisturized. I can’t stop touching my face!
  • This mask helped to lighten up my acne scars and it keeps my skin clear.
  • It just feels really luxurious!!!

Cons:

  • It’s a bit pricey- $30 for 2 oz. Luckily I got this for $22 during a Black Friday sale over at the Organic Beauty Talk Shop.
  • It tends to drip off my face easily so I can’t move around a lot when I have this on.
  • It’s hard to apply this since it is very sticky. This is good on one hand since the product is truly natural and is made of honey. To get around the stickiness I use a spoon to spread this all over my face. I think it would have been nice if the product came with a mini spatula or a scooper.

Time Used Before Review: I applied a thin layer of this mask twice a week for a month.

Overall Rating: 4.5/5- Is there a way to bathe in this stuff?!
