I can never decline the opportunity to try out paraben free, cruelty free, plant based botanical skin care products. In the case of Authentic Skin Remedies I was initially blown away by the ingredients that they use to make their products. They use common ingredients such as jojoba and coconut oil but they also use some less known ones such as pomegranate extract and carrot seed oil. Come to think of it, reading the ingredients lists to their products made me hungry.
Company Description- A natural, enriching facial crème for all skin types. Renew facial crème is designed to help balance skin hydration with Jojoba and Coconut Oils. This Crème has anti-aging benefits from Vitamin E along with soothing and nourishing properties of essential oils. This formulation of plant-based ingredients helps to renew skin naturally.
Authentic Skin Remedies RENEW Botanical Facial Crème Review
The moisturizer that I was sent to review is called Renew and it’s part of a five step process which targets the anti-aging issue. The first thing that I noticed is that it has a delicious lemon fragrance that wakes me up when I apply it in the morning. If you’re not into fragrances don’t jump ship just yet because it only lasts a few minutes before the scent disappears. Although I’m generally not into fragrances I happen to love lemon so I’m good to go with this one.
The Renew Botanical Face Cream has a rich yet somewhat thin texture. Although it’s white in color, it’s quick to absorb and starts turning sheer the second you start rubbing it into the skin. There are no streaks and no extra rubbing necessary to get it into the skin. All that was left is that my skin had a healthy looking glow and it felt very soft.
As with all of my other skincare items I had to check out the ingredients used to make the cream. Ingredients include:
- Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf
- Organic Coconut Oil
- Organic Rose Distillate
- Organic Jojoba Seed Oil
- Organic Pomegranate Extract
- Organic Geranium Oil
- Organic Rosewood Wood Oil
- Organic Lavender Oil
- Organic Rosemary Leaf Extract
- Vitamin E
I love that this product is made from concentrated plant-based ingredients focusing on natural resources, many of which are certified organic plant materials. A bonus is that all of the ingredients are paraben free and cruelty free.
Another surprising bonus is that all Authentic Skin Remedies products are multipurpose. In the case of the facial cream you can use it on your décolleté and hands and get the same results as your face (well I did anyway). My only regret is that while this cream works beautifully for the fall weather, as it gets colder I want to use a heavier moisturizer so I’m going to be putting this one aside for now. I will be revisiting it later on though. You can learn more about it on http://www.authenticskinremedies.com/
