This is Part 2 of a 2 part series. If you haven’t already, please read Part 1 of this review.
I loved the fabulous Balancing gluten free Skin Care from Mukti and so was really excited to try the other goodies they sent along.
I should mention real quick here that you can purchase little sample sizes of all the gluten free skin care products from Mukti for an extremely reasonable price. The samples are quite generous and give you plenty of stuff to make up your mind about it.
Now for the reviews!
Generally speaking, when I think “serum” I think some kind of oil. So I was totally not expecting the texture of this serum from Mukti. It’s a gel! Kinda odd, but it makes for a cooling sensation as it melts into the skin.
Being an antioxidant serum, a huge portion of this product’s purpose is to nourish and protect.
A daily anti-aging protection with liposomes to penetrate & regenerate the deeper dermal layers.
But beyond that, this serum does a lovely job of just plain moisturizing. It isn’t oily at all, which is awesome for me and it soaks in quickly. The description mentions it making a lovely gluten free makeup base, though I have not tried that yet. What with the velvety texture and moisturized feel this serum leaves behind, I imagine it would make a fabulous makeup base.
First off, it feels amazing. The cool gentleness of the gel is relaxing to my tired eyes. It’s so concentrated that again, I got way too much of the product out. Therefore I actually got some in my eyes. I’ve said this before, but my eyes are embarrassingly sensitive. They tear up, sting and water at the slightest provocation. Yeah, the “something’s in my eye” excuse isn’t actually an excuse for me. 😛 But this gel didn’t hurt a single bit. I winced, waiting for the sting and watering… But it never came. I just had a wee bit of cool gel in my eye. Which was weird to say the least, but not painful.
Also, the description claims to “firm and tone the skin around the delicate eye area”. It actually does! I’m young and my skin is young, but I actually felt a different after just one application of the gel. It was kinda bizarre actually. The skin around my eyes has never been that firm. Ever. Believe it or not, it wasn’t until after I noticed the firm skin that I read the full description of the product on the website. “Oh, well that explains it.”
The final portion of the description runs thus:
It is never too early to start using an eye gel as the eye area is one of the first places to show the signs of aging.
Well it’s never too early to start soothing your tired eyes either. All in all, this product has impact today and for the future of my skin.
Exfoliants are probably in general my overall favorite gluten free skin care product. Not sure why that is. Maybe because I love the scrubbing feel of them? Dunno, but because of this I’ve tried a lot of exfoliants. It seems like there are so many out there that just don’t feel like they get the job done. That always annoys me. It’s an exfoliant. It’s supposed to scrub away dead skin. Why is there dead skin left on my face?
Mukti’s jojoba facial exfoliant does the job and does it well.
The instructions say to use it 1-2 times a week and that’s a very good estimate for how often to use it. This is definitely a strong exfoliant, so don’t overdo it! But it didn’t make my face sting or feel damaged, or anything like that. It just cleans so thoroughly one doesn’t need much!
Once again, I really like Mukti’s products. They have an excellent selection of products, do their job well, feel good and nourish my skin.
