In case you didn't get a chance to watch my Vlog post on my Youtube or don't have the time here is the Blog post about it! :)
To start, my mom and I met a Honest Beauty representative, Jocelyn, at Ulta one day and at first I just wanted to see what products they had quick but she started talking to me about them and I wanted to know so much more! She did a demo on both of us and my mom was thrilled as was I! We bought almost everything she used on us and I love them all!
I have used Acure Organics (dry + sensitive) daily cleanser for the past few months and I realized even though it was for dry skin, my skin was still so dry afterwards. So I haven't been using a facial cleanser for about two weeks until I was introduced to the Honest daily gel cleanser. I love it so much, it doesn't have a strong scent, it makes my skin so soft, and it doesn't make my skin dry after using it! (Thank goodness)
After I wash my face I will use their moisturizer, it held up well underneath my makeup- before I was using Argan Oil and it wasn't sitting well under my new makeup, which is fine by me because I can still wear the Argan Oil (and still look decent) if I don't feel like wearing any makeup.
For the extra moisture with or without the moisturizer I use the Hydration Mist, this is one of those products that you can spray on anytime throughout the day to freshen up. I haven't done this yet but I'll try it and see how it does, but it definitely makes me feel more awake.
My favorite purchase from the line was the Magic Balm. I used to use straight shea butter to moisturize my lips and above my lip where it gets most dry. This has shea butter in it already plus a bunch of other good products mostly with calming benefits. I have two, I keep one in my purse and one in my makeup bag, its a must!
I don't normally get a tinted moisturizer because they don't usually cover or last as long as I would want them too. Combined with the skincare products and the aluminizing powder- which I will mention later- it lasts all day for me! A little goes a long way, I rub the moisturizer between my fingers to warm it up and pat it all over my face. It leaves a nice dewey finish which I absolutely love and look for in foundations/tinted moisturizers. It is also very build able without looking "cakey".
For that extra coverage if I don't want to use the moisturizer I will turn to the concealer duo. They are a cream consistency one is darker than the other but not too drastically. I used them for my underlies the other day and it was comforting to look in the mirror at the end of the day and saw no creasing.
I previously mentioned the luminizer, so let's jump into that. I put this all over my face (very lightly) and it makes my skin just glow! We bought the shade darker than the lightest (which I'm going to go back and get) for my mom and I to share. I also used this as a contour and eyeshadow one day and I felt so sun kissed without looking bronzed.
Those are the only beauty and skincare products we bought, but I definitely will be going back for a few more purchases including the cream blush and the lightest luminizer powder. When Jocelyn did our demos she also used the brow pencil, lip crayon and gloss on me, and the eyeliner and eyeshadow on my mom. She bought the eyeshadow but I couldn't because they contain Carmine (darn) but it's ok, it's hard to find better makeup without it. If anything I will try hers and see if I react.
So that sums it up for now, basically I'm super happy with these products and I look forward to seeing what else the company comes out with. Thanks for reading!
