AUGUSTINUS BADER The Rich Cream Review | Full size $265

AUGUSTINUS BADER The Rich Cream review by icangwp blog

IcanGWP Review: If you are looking for an extra product in your arsenal to combat wrinkles but just nothing works at all, this hi-tech cream will sure delight you! Dr Bader’s Rich Cream and The Cream launched February 2018. His product might be the future of skincare. Why are they so extraordinary? Stem cell technology!

According to Dr Bader, “I had never considered launching a consumer skincare brand,” Bader reveals. “My experience is as a physician and as a research scientist. When I met Charles Rosier [the brand’s co-founder], I was working on a treatment to create scar-free healing in children suffering from severe burns. I was also developing treatments for patients with diabetic wounds, as well as other stem cell-based treatments.”

His discoveries in wound healing and stem cell activation had applications for the aging process, Patented Technology – TFC8®.

According to the brand: Everything the body does is the result of its innate communication processes. As we age, these communications change and certain signals become less frequent, or stop completely. Inspired by Professor Bader’s technology, the key to both creams’ transformative properties is TFC8®, our proprietary Trigger Factor Complex. TFC8® comprises natural amino acids, high-grade vitamins and synthesised molecules naturally found in skin. It guides key nutrients and powerful natural ingredients to the skin cells, creating an optimal environment for the body’s innate processes of repair and renewal. Everything your body needs, it already knows.

The ingredients are superb, luxurious and worth the price. The mid-weight fragrance free cream has a nice emollient texture. It contains lot of nutritious oils, amino acids, skin-essential vitamins, peptides, shea butter, avocado, primrose, and Squalane.

The silky Augustinus Bader The Rich Cream spreads well and I only use a small amount. The light ingredients absorb and part of the oils melt and provide silky protection on the dermis. It’s dewy and I like it. As one of our readers Jen and most reviewers are excited and shared with us – it’s amazing! It plumps the skin after two applications. My skin luminously glows and stay hydrated. It’s like medicine that is healing and curing the skin. Make it healthier for all plumpness, elasticity, smoothness and even skin tone. My oil production in dry and oily areas is more well balanced. There is no clogged pores or breakout.  It did a spectacular job on my skin. It wore well under makeup. It’s flawless so far. This product could easily enter my Hall of Fame best anti-aging cream. I need to see the long-term results and will share it with you later on!

The only downside I can think of is the steep price, but for me, worth every penny! Tip: I’d go for The Rich Cream version instead of The Cream version.

Revive Moisturizing Renewal Cream Review | Full size $195

IcanGWP Review: What luxury packaging for Revive Renewal Cram! This is no doubt a powerful night cream for a great brand like Revive. Can it actually revive our skin? If you really want new skin, then chemical leave-on exfoliator is a must-have for your regimen. It’s too soon to tell the long term results but this product is promising to deliver  better skin due to proper exfoliation. I like the idea of leting glycolic work at night and waking up with clearer skin. Tip: I wouldn’t apply the cream to any psoriasis area or moles.

Sachajuan Ocean Mist Volume Shampoo Review| Full size $28

Sachajuan Ocean Mist Volume Shampoo review by icangwp blog

IcanGWP Review:  If you are looking for a volumizing shampoo that doesn’t leave your hair sticky, crunchy or tangled, then this volume shampoo from Sachajuan is what you are looking for.  It combines Ocean Silk Technology & natural vegetable proteins to boost your hair’s strength and leaves hair full, shiny and strong. The ocean blue shampoo has a fresh marine scent. It lathers well and rinses off great. I like that it doesn’t leave heavy powder-like stuff on your hair to volumize it. My hair is gorgeous and has a little more volume. I adore the mild ocean breeze aroma that is left on my hair.

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner Review | Full size $55

Sunday Riley Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner review by icangwp blog

IcanGWP Review: Martian toner! Cool name and concept from Sunday Riley. I like that she is willing to take a risk and put something out of the box into the market. Toner is very important. pH needs to be adjusted after face wash so that serum, oils or moisturizer can work. Massage Martian gently into the skin and the formula transforms from a treatment gel to a water toner.

This toner has a liquid texture and it’s green. I felt a little bit cool on the skin but not burn or tingling. It seems to open up and purify the pores with tea tree oil, in conjunction with, witch hazel, black cumin, Manuka and magnolia bark extracts. It can mattify excess oil with Bentonite clay. Green tea and cucumber soothe and diminish the look of redness for a calmer-feeling complexion. Everything is nice and should contribute to oily and acne-prone skin concerns. I wish that the cleaning supply-like scent that the brand tried to mask it down with lemongrass is milder. It’s a pity. I will recommend this product if they have an alcohol-free version.

THE ORGANIC PHARMACY Rose Facial Cleansing Gel Review | Full size $85

THE ORGANIC PHARMACY Rose Facial Cleansing Gel review by icangwp blog

IcanGWP Review: This Facial Cleansing Gel from The Organic Pharmacy is so easy and relaxing to use. It gives me a spa-like experience in a blink. They recommend this product on damp skin and remove it with muslin cloth. I use a soft damp wash cloth that runs through warm water. The beige fluid has a nice botanical floral aroma that calms my senses while leaving on the skin (no foam). It’s more relaxing and heavenly when I put the big wash cloth on and got the steam-like warmth and the rose garden scent. The organic and pharmaceutical grade herbal extracts work great. It removed makeup well and didn’t leave balm or oil residue on the skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean and soft. This product contains alcohol.

Vitabrid C¹² Vitabrid C¹² FACE Brightening Powder Review | Full Size $60 value

IcanGWP Review: OK, I’m freaking bout about the latest powder. It’s 25% Zinc Oxide plus tons of Allantoin, Vitamin C, Niacinamide and more. The instructions are to shake it well and add this product to any serum or moisturizer twice a day. As we know that Zinc Oxide, which is mineral, is a superb player in mineral sunscreen. Due to the new nano-sized zinc oxide particles discovered in 2008, this advanced powder formula of zinc oxide is now capable of being applied to the skin without leaving behind a thick white film. Here are the Zinc Oxide benefits (1): Preventing aging of the skin. Improving synthesis of collagen and forming of new connective tissue. Keeping moisture locked into dry skin. Helping to lower skin inflammation associated with irritation or allergies. Preventing bacterial infections. Helping to treat acne breakouts. Improving wound healing. Providing broad-spectrum sun protection and skin cancer. Aiding in recovery of burns and damaged tissue. Lowering inflammatory dermatoses, including rosacea.

The white powder is ultra fine but doesn’t feel too powdery. I like the weight compared with other Vitamin C powders from other brands. It mixed well with any essence, serum or moisturizer.

It adds a little bit of protectant layer to the skincare product it’s mixed with. Not a silicone-y way but more like makes my skin smoother and feels like baby bum! The result is instant! It softens my skin the second day. My skin oiliness and dryness is gradually balanced. The dry cheeks are more like normal now and the T-zone becomes less oily. I actually put on more today! It’s a flawless mix of only a few but concentrated goodies. If you miss out this bag, try to find sample at your local Barneys New York!

Davines The Spotlight Circle Hair Mask Review — $10 Value

Davines The Spotlight Circle Hair Mask review by icangwp blog

An illuminating hair mask designed to bring instant shine and brightness to hair, enhancing natural or cosmetic color. Rich in fatty acids, vitamins and proteins, the Moringa oil in this mask nourishes and enhances shine without weighing hair down.

IcanGWP Review: Does What it Says it Will! I am not a big fan of leave on cream since it weighs my fine straight hair down but I’m pleased with Davine Hair Mask. You wouldn’t have known that you could have glossy flat-ironed straight hair– just to comb down with this mask. It calms down frizz and adds a little more shine to the hair. My hair really looks straight. It’s beautiful and easy. The mask doesn’t leave any scent on the hair. I only used a quarter size for my hair. I feel I’ve gotten much more bang for my buck. I find the lid is cumbersome. I don’t know if I did something wrong with the package but I can’t reseal it.

KOH GEN DO Spa Cleansing Water Review | Full size $46 – $62

KOH GEN DO Spa Cleansing Water review by icangwp blog

IcanGWP Review: There are so many rave reviews on the Koh Gen Do Spa Cleansing Water and it lives up the name. It’s has no scent or color added. It cleans makeup really well. I love that it’s powerful to do a  cleanse for some eye and lip as well. My eye makeup is partly removed without a lot of rubbing or burning. It felt gentle and doesn’t get into my eyes like cleansing oil. I don’t feel any tingling or skin tightening from harsh cleansing agents. One caveat, I find I’ll need a few more drops compared to other cleansing water.

Malin + Goetz Vitamin E Face Moisturizer Review | Full size $48

barneys love yourself gift bag review icangwp beauty blog march 2019.JPG

IcanGWP Review: People love their Mojito lip balm and Eucalyptus deodorant. The white lotion moisturizer is a fragrance-free formula. It feels cooling and soothes skin immediately. It dried completely and there’s a thin layer of sheer Vitamin E left. There are so many reviewers that recommend using this as a makeup base.

Beautiful Barneys New York cosmetics bag.
