I feel like I haven’t posted in FOREVER, but finals are almost over and I can get back into the swing of things.
So a few weeks ago, I received an extremely generous package from @africanbotanics , and I’ve been using their products religiously for the past few weeks - here are some thoughts:
- Pure Marula Cleansing Oil: gel consistency that turns into an oil - it’s gentle, antioxidant rich and contains fruit AHAs to gently exfoliate the skin. It melts away ALL traces of makeup, leaving my skin feeling soothes and nourished. Absolute must have!
- Fleurs D’ Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream: my favorite moisturizer, possibly ever? It’s incredible. Incredibly nourishing and cooling/soothing. I use it during the night, and wake up with even toned/glowing skin. It contains Blue Marine Micro Algae and high concentration of plant peptides that plumps, protects and promotes cell renewal. It’s deeply nourishing and soothing, which is everything I want in a night-time moisturizer. I don’t think I’ll ever live without this, and while the price tag is steep, is absolutely worth it.
-Resurrección Eye Cream: Recently re-packaged to in this convenient bottle with a pump, it’s incredibly nourishing and hydrating. Includes African Resurrection plant extract, which stimulates skin’s collagen, elasticity and radiance. I’ve only been using it during the night time, and I’ve honestly haven’t noticed any improvement on dark circles or minimal fine lines. It’s nourishing, but I think I still prefer the Chanel Le Lift.
-Cloudburst Micro-Emulsion: the perfect combination of molecular science and wild-crafted Botanicals and antioxidants to provide a highly plumping, continuously hydrating and sebum regulating moisturizer. It’s gel-like consistency makes it perfect for those with oily skin, or for dryer skin types, it’s perfect to layer under oils. Really enjoy using this one during the day, as it sinks in quickly and keeps me hydrated all day long.
I consider African Botanics one of the best brands on the market at the moment- their highly luxurious blends of extremely effective ingredients are more than worth it!
