If you read my first post about Beautycounter products, you probably remember that I said I'd report back after I tried the samples I was given. That was over a week ago, so I'm sorry for the delay, but I got a doozy of a cold/flu/bug. Like the 102-degree fever kind. Fun! But now that I am finally feeling almost back to normal, I wanted to let y'all know what I thought.
To recap, I tried the Routine Cream Cleanser, Every Day AM Cream, Every Night PM Cream, Any Time Eye Cream, Gentle Exfoliator Polishing Cream, a Face Oil and their Tinted Moisturizer.
So, here's what I thought:
I LOVED the eye cream and the exfoliator. Both were very hydrating and creamy but not oily. I also liked the face oil because it amazingly made my face feel moisturized without feeling oily. Strange I know, since it's an oil. Plus the scent (I tried the Calendula) was divine!
I did like the cleanser and moisturizers as well, but I still found them not to be QUITE moisturizing enough for me right now. Again, I am still recovering from advanced adrenal fatigue and one of the symptoms is extremely dry skin. So as that continues to improve and I come off of the specialized skincare I've been using for AF, I will give it another try. Because it does feel great otherwise!
The tinted moisturizer was also really nice. VERY lightweight, not greasy. And I like that I can apply it with my fingertips or a brush. It was very easy to blend in and as far as I could tell, it didn't come off easily on my clothes or my hand if I rested it under my chin. Big plus!
So overall, I would recommend the products I tried and I plan to try out a few more like the shampoo, shower gel, lip conditioner and lip sheer. Since I am a self-admitted lip gloss addict, this will be an important test. :)
