Hi all! I hope you are doing well and are ready for Valentine’s Day tomorrow! I am! It should be a fun day with friends and family.
I have an amazing brand review today. It’s a Korean skincare company called Mamonde. Here’s more about the brand from their website:
The Mamonde journey begins in the idyllic Mamonde Garden near Seoul, South Korea, where we cultivate and study our own flowers. We love flowers! From bud to blossom, our botanists unveil the secrets of flowers to capture their vital energy – at the heart of all our skin loving ingredients. Mamonde leads the way in fair-trade practices with programs designed to nurture, embrace and connect our local communities.
I love this! I love using natural skincare because I know what’s going on my face is good for me. Here are the items I received for my honest review:
Petal Spa Oil to Foam Cleanser ($21 USD) — a transforming cleansing oil with a subtle rose aroma that transitions to a light, airy foam with water for gentle yet effective cleansing. Damask rose is known for its intensive hydrating and soothing properties and exquisite scent.
Hydrating Beauty Water ($23 USD) — This hydrating toner nourishes, soothes and hydrates skin. Infused with extracts from 100% organic damask rose. Multi-purpose beauty water helps prep, tone, soothe and hydrate skin.
Floral Essential Serum ($38 USD) — Formulated with a unique fermented honeysuckle extract, helps skin look firmer, more refined and revitalized. Honeysuckle’s ability to powerfully absorb nutrients keeps its leaves green, even through the winter. Mamonde’s unique honeysuckle flower extract is fermented one year to create an abundant level of antioxidants. Mamonde’s studies show that this special property helps improve uneven skin tone and dullness.
Floral Moisture Cream ($35 USD) — Formulated with hibiscus extract, this innovative, lightweight cream helps retain essential moisture, for a quenched, glowing complexion. Hibiscus trees bloom new flowers every day, some yielding up to 5,000 blossoms every 100 days. Mamonde studied this power of regeneration and hydration to help develop this moisturizing daily cream.
Floral Hydro Eye Gel Cream ($32 USD) — This is formulated with water-cycle technology, which rapidly and intensely replenishes moisture, locking it in to prevent moisture loss. Micro-molecular hyaluronic acid absorbs up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture, to help create smoother, more supple-looking skin around the eye area. The narcissus bulb stores ample moisture inside throughout winter, allowing its flower to flourish in early summer. Once bloomed, narcissus’ flowers are able to powerfully circulate hydration between multiple flower heads.
What I think: I am really enjoying these products. I remove my makeup each night with a balm or oil and I love this oil to foam cleanser. It’s gentle on my sensitive skin, but removes my makeup completely. And I love applying the beauty water after cleaning my face. It hydrates so nicely and leaves my skin soft. It has a soft rose scent, too.
I think my favorite product is the serum. It absorbs into my skin so quickly and softens. It’s also over three ounces, which for a serum, is a lot. It will last a long time!
The floral creams are also really lovely. The moisture cream is so light on my skin, not greasy at all. Which I need! I love using this at night over the serum. The eye cream is so hydrating, too! Hyaluronic acid is such an amazing ingredient to keep skin moisturized.
When I wake up in the morning after using these products, my skin is soft and glowy, but not greasy. I do have combination/aging skin and don’t like heavy products.
I’m so glad I was able to try these products. They are so hydrating and gentle, but they are really transforming my skin! They can be purchased at Ulta or us.mamonde.com.
