I’ve used the set for 2 weeks & I am obsessed!!!!!!! My skin has legitimately never looked so good. I have horrible combo skin, paired with the occasional deep, cystic acne & so far I haven’t noticed anything like that trying to brew.
We are in the thick of winter in MN and this has been a welcomed balm to my skin. On top of winter, we recently had a long/ stressful hospital stay with our toddler, and my skin was beyond stressed. The blue lagoon set has helped with painful stress acne by decreasing redness and duration. My skin is getting back to it's baseline.
I also really enjoy makeup and the balm does well under makeup for me. Thank you for this set.
Cleanser: Feels like it is moisturizing my face while cleansing. It isn’t abrasive, and wipes off easily when used as directed.
Hydrating spray: This smells amazing and makes my skin feel prepped for moisturizer. Again, no abrasive feel or skin reddening.
Face balm: Goes on smoothly and leaves the skin feeling soft. It does take a little bit to absorb into the skin. I use this every other time just because my skin isn’t super dry.
I love that these products are non toxic and truly natural. My face just feels calm after I’ve used this skin care routine. Will be a repeat customer.
I’ve had acne all my life. I’ve tried ALL THE THINGS. Every OTC and prescription product known to man. I have very oily skin and I just refused to believe that oil wouldn’t clog my pores and make me more oily.
I was an idiot.
I finally read somewhere that the reason oil cleansing works so well is because nothing will dissolve oil like oil. Oil and water don’t mix, so when I’m washing with oil free products and water, nothing is going into my pores and combining with the oil there to flush them out. You need the good oils to mix with the bad oils and pull them out of your pores. Good oils are the only thing that will truly dissolve and clear your pores of the bad oil. Plus, my skin was making excess oil because I wasn’t giving it good oils.
I tried the Essentials set for awhile and my skin improved a lot. It was the first time I tried oil cleansing and it helped SO MUCH! My forever black heads on my nose and chin were gone and my skin was much healthier.
But I’m almost 40 and still get really deep cystic acne on my cheeks and jawline when my hormones change (which is always these days). I switched to Blue Lagoon because it said it was better for acne and holy cow! I almost never get the cheek and jawline acne now!
I’ve been using it for 4 months, so that’s several hormonal cycles. It helps with redness, oil control on my oily parts, and moisturizing on my dry parts. I’ve started using it twice a day instead of just at night and my skin is noticeably softer and healthier. I’ll never use anything else!
The set is soothing and amazing!!!! Have enjoyed applying them so much that I can’t wait for the evening time to take off my makeup just to apply my blue lagoon!
