*** I received these products complimentary for my unbiased review. All opinions stated here are 100% my own****
When I was young, I didn't take skin care too seriously. I used an astringent face wash and I dabbed Clearasil on the occasional break out zits but that was it. I didn't even use sunscreen back then but rather tanning oil in the hopes that my Irish freckled skin would actually tan instead of burning and peeling like it did every time.
Now I am older, much much older and skin care has become an important issue. Granted, I am no fool and I know with age besides wisdom comes wrinkles. That being said, I am still going to fight tooth and nail to keep my face looking as youthful as possible. This means a regiment of cleaning, exfoliating, and moisturizing my epidermis. I have tried other face masks and exfoliants and microdermabrasion creams so when I was approached with these I accepted eagerly to see how these would work.
I must say I was very happy with both the Exfoliant Creme and the Fruit Mask by Retseliney. I will start with the Fruit Mask
The first thing I noticed about the fruit mask was the smell. It smelled like fresh berries. It has a very pleasant light purple color and small flecks of something that appears to be fruit skin in it. The cream is very rich, thick, and luxurious to the touch. I applied it to my face and let it sit for a while before finally rinsing it off. It rinses off very easily with warm water and it made my skin feel very smooth and firm. I kept touching my cheeks because I couldn't believe how smooth they had become.
It is a berry based mask with antioxidant rich Blueberry, Cranberry, Oregon Grape, Bayberry, Cayenne and Seabuckthorn. It also has anti aging benefits (which I need) such as Glycolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, CoQ10, Rosehip Oil, Jojoba Oil and peptides.Retseliney products are made with natural and organic ingredients and do not contain artificial dyes, parabens, phthalates, fragrances or sulfates.And being an animal lover myself its great to know they do not test their products on animals.
The Exfoliant Creme also is a very thick and rich cream with just a very light abrasive feeling to it when applied. It goes on smoothly and is not over abrasive but you can tell that it is an exfoliant. I tried it a few days after the mask and it too made my skin feel clean, smooth, and with less noticeable clogged pored on my nose. It consists of Natural Avocado, Jojoba, Hemp and Grapeseed Oils plus 4% of Shea Butter and Vitamin E. It exfoliates but also moisturizes your skin. Like the mask it contains no artifical dyes, parabens. phthalates, fragrances or sulfates. It is a healthy way to take care of your skin.
It doen't come through very well but of these two photos, the top is me with the cream on my face, its very light so you can't see it very well. It isn't as dense a cream as the fruit mask. The bottom is my face after rinsing off the exfoliant creme.
