I was sent the Carrot Seed & Geranium Moisturizer for free from the company to review for you guys, but after using that product, I decided to make my own order and got a lotion and face mask powder. So let's hop on it to some little reviews!
Check out my video review of the Carrot Seed & Geranium Moisturizer here!
|Very generous amount of product! This is going to last me forever!|
|Dries down after about 10 minutes to be very stiff.|
This is a really generous size, if you ask me. It's also a genius idea, you just add the water or whatever liquid you want to create the paste. It won't go bad quickly because it's just a powder. I think it's a really cool product and worth the price mark because this tub is going to last forever!
I mixed my first mask with aloe vera and I really enjoyed it. I'm glad it dried down (those are my favorite kinds of masks). It was kind of difficult to remove though and it had a slight gritty feel to it. Next time I'll try a different mixing medium and see how it goes.
|Looks like a typical lotion, feels very watery when massaged into skin.|
The scent is very sweet and smells strongly of honey. It smells great and makes you want to lick it, but I'm sure it doesn't taste as good as it smells.
It has a very watery/liquidy feel to it as you rub it into your skin. However, once it's applied, it leaves a nice amount of moisture without being too much or too little. I don't think that it's going to be the best for super dry winter skin, so I would call this a spring/summer appropriate lotion.
Although I enjoy this lotion, I do not think it's worth the price. I imagined the bottle being twice as big for that price. If it was a super rich and great wintertime lotion, I might be able to see the $20 mark being halfway reasonable, but for this pretty mediocre lotion, it's overpriced.
|Skin feels moisturized without looking/feeling greasy.|
|This one pump is the perfect amount for the entire face.|
I received this moisturizer from Astrida Naturals for review purposes. I am not being paid to tell you about it, but I did not pay for it with my own money (the other two items in this review I did buy myself after receiving this product). Anyway, my opinion is the same either way. Without knowing how much this product cost, I estimated it at about $22 in my head, so the $24 price mark is reasonable, if you ask me. Judging by other similar natural products, such as the moisturizers found at Lush, I think the price is good. However, unlike most of Lush's moisturizers, I don't find this Carrot Seed & Geranium moisturizer to be too oily for my skin. I know it has oils in it, but it's not overwhelming for me personally. The pump is also great and gives out the perfect amount of product for my face.
I hope these reviews were helpful! Have you tried any of these products? Let me know your thoughts.
