ILLI TOTAL AGE CARE CLEANSING WATER REVIEW

illitotalagecarecleansingwater


I feel like a salty old sea dog when it comes to beauty products but once in a great while,  a product comes along and I’m like “wtf..where does this fit into my routine?”.  It’s been a long time since that happened to me, but when I saw the Illi Total Age Cleansing Water on the InsiderBeauty store website, I was kind of lost. Illi is one of my favourite brands right now, I am having a serious love affair with their Total Age Care body products and getting compliments left and right ever since I started using them. They smell heavenly and they make my skin insanely soft. I had yet to try anything from their face care line but I figured it had to be good if it was even half as effective as the body care line.

WHAMISA ORGANIC FLOWERS OLIVE LEAF MIST REVIEW

whamisaorganicflowersfermentationoliveleafmist


Let me start off this review by saying I haven’t been this excited about a product line since I discovered Benton. Last month I was contacted with the opportunity to review a new product, normally I pass on these types of solicitations but they caught my eye with the words “fermented” and “natural”. As my long time readers and people familiar with my articles might know by now, I swear by ferments and love to go as natural as possible with skincare. First treatment essences, serums, emulsions, masks, anything with ferments usually ends up on my favourites list. Out of all the popular ingredients, my skin reacts best to ferments and absolutely loves them. They impart a glow like nothing else does, fitting, since the name of the company that contacted me was Glow Recipe.

HANYUL RICE ESSENTIAL SKIN SOFTNER REVIEW

hanyulsoftner

In all honesty, I had been so loyal to my Benton toner that I had a wee bit of apprehension about trying this product, I’m so glad I got over myself and gave it a shot. It’s now made it’s way into my permanent lineup.

The Hanyul Essential Rice Softner is essentially a toner, but soft (hence “softner” I’m guessing?). If we take a look at the ingredients we see a lot of stand out goodies.
Water, Alcohol, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Glycereth-26, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Monascus/Rice Ferment, Rice Extract, Yeast/Barley Seed Ferment Filtrate, Lactobacillus/Soybean Ferment Extract, Cnidium Officinale Root (Cnidium) Extract, Angelica Acutiloba Root Extract, Soybean (Glycine Soja) Seed Extract, Cocao Extract, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Glyceryl, Adenosine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Dextrin, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance. *Rice Extract

BENTON SNAIL BEE HIGH CONTENT SKIN TONER REVIEW

bentonsnailbeehighcontenttoner11
I’ve been sitting on this review for awhile. As soon as this product was released I started to receive the inevitable questions about which Benton product choice reigns supreme for me.  But before I get to that, let me start with a brief introduction of this little wonder. Snail Bee High Content Skin joins the Benton family, taking it’s place alongside BHA Aloe on the toner throne.  As is the hallmark of Benton products this is chock full of natural, highly skin beneficial ingredients. . Let’s have a look at them: Snail Secretion Filtrate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Water, Glycerin, Niacinamide, Human Ogliopeptide-1, Bee Venom, Diospyros Kaki Leaf Extract, Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract, Plantago Asiatica Extract, Laminaria Digitata Extract, Ulmus Campetris (Elm) Extract, Zanthoxylum Piperitum Fruit Extract, Pulsatilla Koreana Extract, Usnea Barbata (Lichen) Extract, Athaea Rosea Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Betaine, Bacillus Ferment, Panthenol, Beta-Glucan, Allantoin, Azelaic Acid, Adenosine .  As you can see it’s pretty much a dream, full of great natural ingredients with no fillers (I expect nothing less from them honestly). If you’re wondering exactly who this is aimed at, as I’ve said with their other products I’d say pretty much anyone and everyone. Dry skin, oily skin, normal skin, this could potentially do well for just about everyone. Who I think would really see the most benefits would be someone with sensitive skin, especially those dealing with superficial redness. With the inclusion of the snail secretion and the green tea water, it’s a pretty powerful little calming potion. The texture is just ever so slightly thicker and more viscose and water. It’s absolutely not sticky, it’s actually quite the opposite. It’s very refreshing. After using this product for a few months I can say it’s a soothing, calming, concoction that made my skin brighter, calmer, and clearer. Now, on to what everyone has been asking me. I kept hemming and hawing over where I was going to land on the ‘there can only be one, make your choice’ side. Since there’s now two toners, and I loved the last one so much, I had to pit these two high performing gems against each other and let them fight it out. So, which do I prefer between the Aloe BHA toner and Snail Bee High Content Skin toner? I’m going to have to go with the High Content Skin on this one. Not that I don’t still absolutely love the Aloe, mind you. I just think for me personally, the benefits of the High Content edge out the competition. It was a close call though, they’re both excellent products. However, I do find that the BHA Aloe toner is more moisturizing compared to this one. If that’s the most important thing for you, you still might prefer to stick with the Aloe. Also of note, some people have found that they have a sensitivity to the inclusion of Alcea Rosea extract (commonly known as hollyhock),  an ingredient in the Aloe toner. There’s some good news for those people because the High Content Skin does not contain that ingredient. So if you wanted to love the Benton toner in the past and didn’t, I would strongly suggest you give this one a try! For me, this is perfection in a bottle. Keeping in line with the insane love and devotion I have to Benton products this deserves higher than my highest rating. 5 out of 5 turtles plus an extra turtle for being so damn awesome.  + Available on Amazon here
