Well, I wasn't born with it, and it's definitely not Maybelline, but IT IS Born Skincare. I had the opportunity to try a few of their products, and I jumped at the chance. Want to know the deets? Let's do it!
ABOUT THE BRAND: Created four years ago by the lovely Gloria Barghi she started this passion project. What inspired this passion? Well unfortunately her brother was diagnosed with cancer, and amazingly enough survived. This inspired her to create products that were both effective, and nontoxic. Not only are all Born Skin products nontoxic, but they are organic, cruelty free, and infused with grapes! What is really lovely is that they use a vast variety of grapes, all of which are unique and effect the skin in different ways.
WHY I LOVE THEM: Uhm, hello?! Did you not read everything above? Absolutely amazing. It also doesn't hurt that this brand is at a fabulous price point without compromising ingredients, and the owner, Gloria, is an absolute doll.
Pure Foaming Cleanser $28-
First up is my favorite of the bunch, The Pure Foaming Cleanser. This dreamy cleanser is designed for all skin types with it's foamy yet gentle consistency. I personally remove my makeup before cleansing, but if you want to skip a step, this baby will handle that job for you too. I kept this cleanser my little secret for about month because I thought it just might be to good to be true. As someone who used to struggle with cystic acne, I thought harsh cleansers full of chemicals were the only way I would ever have clear skin. This cleanser completely changed my mind. I use this both morning and night. It is quick and effective, and it's great for both you and your boo! Talk about a bargain. What more could you honestly ask of a single cleanser?!
The Ingredients: Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Cocamidopropyl Hydroxysultaine (1), Decyl Glucoside (and) Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate, Saccharide Isomerate (Moisture Magnet), Vegetable Glycerin, Myrciaria Dubia (Camu Camu) Fruit Extract, Polyglyceryl-2 Caorate (Plant Polysaccharide), Thyme, Glycerin, Egyptian Geranium Oil, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Lemon Peel Oil, Orange Fruit Oil, Blood Orange Oil
I absolutely love that this cleanser is based with Aloe Vera, rather than diluted with water. This is why it is so perfect for inflammed, irritated, or acnenic skin. It is gentle while still removing all impurities, and created with beautiful ingredients. What makes this even better? They are offering you all 15% off until November 7th right here with code 'GREENBUNNY15'
The Source For Skin $45
Next up is another absolutely fabulous product. Meet 'The Source for Skin,' one of it's four counterparts. There is The Source for Skin, The Source for Men, The Source for Mothers, and The Source for Sensitive Skin. This one is the best for my skin type (normal-dry, acne prone), but oily girls do not run and hide! You can use this too! This baby is composed of 100% Cabernet Oil. This stuff is PURE baby, pure. Cabernet Oil is lovely because it contains fatty acids that revive the skin, keeping you hydrated and youthful. This oil can be used for face, neck, body, hair, after-shave, it's basically unstoppable. I am a face oil hoarder, and this one made it's way the front of the pack all month long. That's when you know it's real! It's so real that I even featured it in my 'Fall Edit' which you can view right here. Yes, don't worry the 15% still applies to this baby too! Go get you some here.
The Source For Muscles $35
Oh it's almost like they knew I would needing this throughout the month of October! I was moving quite a few boxes this month, and I guess my technique was sub-par because my back was paying for it. I was going to run, but with the back damage instead I crawled to where this little gem was hiding. I called in my sister as recruit to slather this all over my back and within minutes 'Ahhhhh.' This is the all natural version of Icy-Hot! How does it do this? With a beautiful blend of Muscadine, Eucalyptus, and Menthol. This blend took me on a trip of pure bliss and relief. I would kiss on the mouth I could! Pick this baby up right here.
So all in all, it is safe to say that I have a total crush on Born Skincare. Everything I have tried is a total home run. Will you be picking anything up? If you do, don't forget the coupon 'GREENBUNNY15' It is only good until November 7th.
Until next time, XO!
