First off I'd like to say Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing mothers out there. I hope this day is a great one for each and every one of you!!!
Earlier today I uploaded a new video reviewing and sharing my initial thoughts/impressions of my skincare regime. A link to my beauty channel will be at the end of this post. I am currently using the Michael Todd True Organics skincare for acne/oily skin. I started off using small 1oz. travel sized products from their discovery kits for my skin type. I order two of those kits back in April and I am currently using my last little bit from the second kit. So I figured I would do a review since I received my order yesterday of all full size products. I really like how this brand offers great skincare products at an affordable price. I feel great after using these products, 2 thumbs up!
I have been using Michael Todd True Organics for about 3 weeks. I really love the smell, feel and packaging of all the products. I am going to review briefly each product and then do a follow up in a few weeks.
*Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser: This cleanser is very different from anything that I have tried in the past. The color looks like dirty gray muddy water but the smell is very spa like. It's comforting and soothing! This cleanser is suppose to provide a deep cleansing which is great for oily/acne prone skin. I have started noticing clearer skin in just 3 weeks, whoop whoop! Full size is 7 oz. for $24
*Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub: I am so nuts about this product, haha! I have never been this crazy about a skincare item like this before. The color is dark gray and smells very clean. This scrub stands alone when compared to others. It can be used everyday up to twice daily. I love how the scrubby particles are round wax beads. If you take a tiny bit of this product on the back of your hand and rub it into your skin, you can actually see colorless round beads. Most scrubs are not made completely round leaving jagged edges that can actually harm your skin and cause tiny microscopic lacerations...no buenos! Full size is 3.4 oz for $18----> very affordable!
*Organic Lemon AHA & DMAE Toner: Toners have never been my thing. I always thought they were pointless since they would sting and leave my skin very dry feeling and looking. This toner is different as well. It smells like lemons, hence the name lol. It doesn't make my skin feel tight nor does it sting, yay!! Finally a toner that does what it claims. This toner doesn't contain alcohol. Full size is 7.8 oz for $18----->also affordable, which I love.
*Moisture Lite Non Oily Hydrating Lotion: Y'all this is hands down the best smelling product I have every used. It smells like freshly squeezed lemons!! I love smelling like a walking basket of fresh lemons. I love how this moisturizer makes my skin feel hydrated and comfortable. I was shocked to feel this way because all moisturizers made for oily skin are always too thin and not hydrating enough. It's perfect. Full size is 2.4 oz for $29
The only item from the discovery kit for acne/oily skin that I didn't repurchase full size is the Kaolin Clay mud mask. The only reason why I didn't order it is because I still have some of this product left from my first discovery kit. Since I bought 2 kits in April, I have two 1oz. bottles of the kaolin clay mask. I only use a tiny bit twice a week, probably like a quarter size amount. I try to apply this product right before I hop in the shower so that the hot steam can open up my pores for deeper cleaning.
I hope this some what mini review is helpful to you guys. If you guys have additional questions on anything that I didn't mention you can leave your questions here or on my channel. Click on this link for my beauty channel.
