African Botanics Pure Marula Oil Cell Regenerating Face Oil Review, 0.17 oz. | Full size $100
According to African Botanics: This award-winning luxurious, ultra lightweight highly active oil absorbs instantly to visibly help smooth, plump, firm and repair the skin.
Incredibly potent and antioxidant-rich, it delivers nutrients while neutralizing free radicals. This highly stable oil contains Tocopherols, Tocotrienols, Flavonoids, Phenolic compounds and Phytosterols. Lightest molecular weight and the richest plant source of Oleic Acid (Omega 9) Pure Marula Oil penetrates deep into the dermis to nourish and soothe reactive skin.
Stimulates collagen synthesis to enhance skin’s ‘plumpness’ and maintain its density, while high levels of Oleic Acid (80%), palmitic and stearic fatty acids are critical for rapid penetration – meaning this oil sinks in quickly to promote intense repair and seal in precious moisture.
It forms a natural lipid barrier to lock in moisture and protect against dryness, pollution and heat from the environment. The anti-oxidative benefits help protect against wrinkles that emerge from free radicals and daily environmental stressors.
IcanGWP Review: If you are familiar with Drunk Elephant Marula Oil, it launched in UK early this month and has gotten over 70 reviews at Space NK UK already.
These African Botanics that include Marula Oil get really high ratings but then some people mention it broke them out so terribly. And you are right, Marula Oil is one of the most comedogenic oils and has a really high amount of omega-9 fatty acid that is perfect for dry skin and is a bad dream for oily or acne-prone skin. It’s less comedogenic only after coconut oil, flax seed oil or soy bean oil that we use to cook or butter like cocoa butter or coconut butter. Dry skin readers should especially look for oil that is rich in omega-9 fatty acid (among so many omega-x varieties in the market) because it’s so very hydrating. It can help dry and sensitive skin to reduce inflammation in various layers of the skin. It’s a lightweight oil which is a nonoily oil– quickly absorbed into the skin without leaving you greasy. Marula oil also contains so many beneficial ingredients that New York Times called it Liquid Gold. Pure Marula oil is quite expensive but worth it for DRY SKIN.
African Botanics Pure Marula Oil Cell Regenerating Face Oil is like a silky liquid, so pure and so light. The mild grape, nutty, spring scent is intoxicating. It helps my cheeks stay hydrated for hours. This is a great nutrient-rich oil that is naturally craved for dry skin. I highly recommended my dry skin readers to stock up some Marula Oil for the upcoming winter. You’ll really see the difference, especially after you use strong retinol or acids. Don’t forget to store this antioxidant rich elixir out of the light! Space NK USA offers nine Marular Oil skincare products from African Botanics here.
Now for my oily skin readers, very low comedogenics are from berries line like blackberry seed oil, watermelon seed oil, Goji berry seed oil, blueberry seed oil or argan oil and squalane oil that are more well-known.
Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste Review, 1.35 oz. | Full size $53
Strengthen the hair while ensuring that it is clean by using the Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste with every wash. This cleansing hair treatment differs from other forms of shampoo as the texture is closer to a paste than a liquid, allowing for easy control of quantity and use.
The Christophe Robin Cleansing Volumizing Paste is formulated to strengthen the hair with it feeling thicker at the tips and volumised at the roots.
The thick paste turns into a light, rose-scented foam once water is added, which can be gently massaged into the hair and is easily rinsed off with water. Its beneficial results can be intensified by leaving it on the hair for two minutes before rinsing.
IcanGWP Review: This is one of the most effective products for fine hair with oily scalp! The gritty brown thick paste looks gross in the jar. Christopher Robin shampoo’s chocolate rosy scent is so addictive. It’s divine, not too gourmand and a very exotic scent. The main ingredient is the clay and it changes to foam when I massaged it to the roots. It takes three times more than my normal shampoo to emulsify from gritty paste to foam.
My scalp felt really good. It’s physically and chemically deep cleansing. It amazingly gets rid of buildup and oil. It left behind a little bit of a starchy feeling like normal volume shampoos. The volume is impressive though. My family can’t believe it’s a shampoo without any setting spray or salon styling could do to my hair. It’s a luxurious and healthy volumizing. It’s actually so puffy like Mad Men characters when I used it to the full length. The roots are lifted even after I slept!!
You don’t have to wash your hair everyday like when using other styling products. I’d recommend using it to the roots to lift them up and use other shampoo to make the most of it. If you have healthy hair that is really flat, this is a really easy step to add true volume. I have tried many and none is like this one. This product has made its way to a permanent spot in my shower. They recommend using it once or twice a week. It will definitely be worth the investment. Highly recommend!!
Omorovicza Moor Mud Cream Cleanser Review, 1.0 oz. | Full size $80
Clarify and refresh your complexion with the Omorovicza Moor Cream Cleanser; a gentle, detoxifying formula that works to eliminate impurities without over-drying or uncomfortable tightness.
Harnessing the purifying powers of mineral-rich Hungarian Moor Mud (derived from the largest thermal lake in Europe, Lake Hévíz), the luxurious cleanser delivers a deep pore cleansing action; effectively dissolving dirt and make-up to reveal a smoother, more refined appearance.
HOW TO USE Apply a pea-sized amount to damp skin and massage in circular motions before rinsing thoroughly with warm water. Avoid contact with eyes, cannot be used to remove eye makeup.
IcanGWP Review: If you like Omorovicza Thermal Cleansing Balm and Ultramoor Mud Cleansing Mask, you will love this hybrid cream cleanser! Hungarian Moor Mud is rich in calcium and magnesium carbonates, humic acid and fulvic acid, which together purify and nourish the skin. It’s a great detox formula with effective antiseptic and anti-microbial properties. I am literally surprised at how amazingly smooth this thick cream is.
When I applied it, my thirsty skin soaked up this formula so well. I fell for the slightly cool soothing sensation. Use one quarter instead of one pea size as they recommend. The divine peppermint and eucalyptus scent is so fresh and luxe! This cleanser is powerful! It can deep cleanse congestion but doesn’t draw hydration out of your skin like clay.
I read the following helpful trick: massage it in and leave it on as a mask. I’m so glad to discover this advice! My skin is so soft, calm and rejuvenated. I don’t think it can remove eye makeup. I have combination skin and both dry and oily areas are equally happy! If you have very sensitive skin, you may find it’s too sensitizing.
I hope you enjoyed the review!
