You know when you have a sample of a product and you immediately have low expectations of a product for various different reasons – that’s what I had with this product. I received a couple of samples from the brand when I placed a Beauty Bay order a few months ago. A toner and a cleanser which I eventually got around to trying, and I wrote a little review about them here.
As I said in my original review the packaging of them leaves a lot to be desired it doesn’t have the feel of a company which has spent a signficant amount of time thinking about their branding and I’m itching to design new labels and logos for the product – what a graphic designer problem to have. But that’s what I think lead me to having low expectations of the product. In my original review the Seaweed Cleansing Lotion was the star of the show for me – I liked it and like with most products have little plan to actually re-buy the same product again, once it’s been reviewed I want to find something else to talk about.
The sample lasted me a good three weeks and once I’d finished it up, and tossed it in my empties pile – aftear a week my skin went from being glowing and clear to breakout city. I went online and purchased this as fast as I could and it’s been in my shower ever since, I genuinely think it is magic.
In my adult life I’ve never suffered that badly with breakouts, I tend to get a few each month due to hormone on my jawline – particularly on the right, and the odd one on my nose, chin or forehead. But since this has been apart of my regime permanently for the past 3 months, this immediately calmed my skin’s breakout down and has kept my skin clear ever since.
It’s not the best cleanser in the world given it does a dire job of removing makeup especially if it’s particularly fresh, so this is something I use in the shower 3-4 times a week as a second stage cleanse and that seems to be enough to keep. But there’s something about the ingredients within this which clearly agrees with my skin.
This is a creamy lotion packed with smooth seed like beans which gently exfoliate the skin – I haven’t been using a separate exfoliator since using this, it’s enough for my skin using a few times a week. I like to apply this in the shower whilst wearing conditioner by massaging into my skin then leaving it on whilst waiting for my conditioner as almost a mini mask.
The one annoyance – other than the labelling – that I have with this product is the lid, this is a normal screw top lid, this is calling out for a pump or a flip top cap to give a more controlled squeeze of the product. I can’t count the number of times, especially as it’s getting closer to empty – that I’ve had to shake the thick creamy formula out and too much has come out.
I’m really intriuged to try more from Mr Mario – if you’ve tried anything then please let me know any hits or misses in the line to watch out for!
