I'll be honest, as of late I rarely get excited with skincare products...can't believe I just wrote that but its true. After trying so many skincare products out there you start loosing that 'high' when something new comes along. Don't get me wrong I love discovering new products, especially when they live up to their hype, but discovering new items can get costly too. Recently, I've received a few emails and comments on suggesting organic/natural skincare lines and I realized I hadn't reviewed many. So when I received a pitch to try theAnswer Skincare and read the ingredient list (ingredients listed beside the products) I hit reply instantly.
I tried the Answer PMS starter kit (minus the eye cream), PMS is peri-menopausal years thus the years before menopause begins. Basically, they're products designed for women in their 30's + (although any age can use them) they're that gentle. My favourite products received;
Face Wash-gentle and non-drying, doesn't remove eye makeup well but that's what eye makeup remover is for. However, I also like a gentler cleanser for morning vs. night so if your looking for the same than this cleanser delivers. And use your regular cleanser at night. Loved it!
Balance Lotion-awesome and doesn't stink! Sometimes natural products can be stinky but I like the light scent of this lotion. A drop goes along way, can feel a bit greasy but with the colder months my skin gets drier and sucked this lotion up. Would buy this in the future.
Clarify Mist-another gem! Great as a toner & even better as a face mist for travels.
Spot Treatment-although I have nothing negative to report on this product as I don't really have any issues with breakouts. The moisturizer itself was sufficient for me and I didn't feel the need to spot treat.
Clear Facial Mask-the only product I didn't like. Dried out my skin, however, the ingredient list is short enough that I might try mixing (mask is in powder form) this with aloe gel.
Overall, I was very impressed with this line and with the website Carenonline, lots of other natural/organic products I'd like to try. Since I like it so much I asked if a discount could be offered to my readers and the lovely owner Ellen Holder from carenonline agreed to offer 15% off thank you!
