Today I’m talking about the importance of skincare- even at a young age! As some of you may know, I’m 25. To me this age doesn’t scream OLD and doesn’t scare me, but I would be lying to you if I said it didn’t make me start thinking about how I treat my skin and what products I put on it.For years, I used the Dove Beauty Bar for my face and neck. At the time of using it (probably 2-3 years) I was pleased with how my skin reacted to it and how easy and efficient it was. Now, fast forward a few years, and I’ve noticed my skin is aging and maybe the Dove Beauty Bar is a little too drying and uncompromising for my skin.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve noticed a few aging areas on my face. Those include a couple of brown sunspots on my face, a few acne scars, and a terrible set of crows’ feet beside my eyes. Now, I’m not against Botox or any type of injection to assist in pausing these problems; however, I think for now changing up my skin care routine will do.
That’s where Willing Beauty Company came in.
Christy with Willing Beauty Company first contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I had any interest in trying out their skincare products and would share my experience with you all. After doing a little research on the products, especially the HY+5 Complex regimen, I knew I wanted to try it all out and see how my skin reacted.
The HY+5 Complex has five products for a complete morning and nighttime skincare routine. After reading product descriptions, I noticed how every product in this line has hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and natural environment enzymes- all incredible ingredients to halt the aging process and keep skin fresh, glowing, and youthful. Starting with the morning routine, I began using these products this past Tuesday, July 18, and first off I noticed how creamy, soft, and efficient these products were. For this post, I’m going to discuss my most coveted products from this line (although they are all amazing!).
The first product I love is the DO OVER Nourishing Cleanser. This product comes in a 3 fluid ounce bottle and retails for $18 when purchased individually. Oh, and did I mention the adorable bright turquoise packaging with the gold metallic heart on it?! In LOVE! Anyway, after squeezing a small amount (about half of a dime) onto my fingertips I rubbed it into my damp face and neck using circular motions. Right off I noticed this product did not lather like previous washes I’ve used, but instead glided over the skin in a lotion type of way. The smell from the product wasn’t too harsh either. It smelled clean and wasn’t overbearing for those of you who are sensitive to smells. I continued with this step for about 1 minute and made sure to get those hard to reach areas- the neck, by the ears, and especially the hairline. After using, my skin felt clean and refreshed.
The second product I love is the SLEEPOVER Replenishing Night Cream. This lotion comes in a 1 fluid ounce container and retails for $30 when purchased individually. I used this every night and applied it to my face and neck. I probably went a little overboard with how much I used every night; but honestly you guys, this product is amazing. I can’t stress enough how wonderful it felt to apply to my skin and wake up and it still feel as moisturized and plump as when I applied the product. This too, has the wonderful vitamins and hyaluronic acid as ingredients and smells of fresh fruit when applied. I will definitely continue to use this every night.
The other two products used were the DAYDREAM Illuminating Day Moisturizer and the GET SET SPF30 Tinted Primer. The moisturizer comes in a 1 fluid ounce container and retails for $24 when purchased individually. The primer comes in 0.67 fluid ounce container and retails for $24 as well. Both of these products I enjoyed using; however, I noticed I gravitated towards the products used in the nighttime routine. The moisturizer gave my skin a bit of glow and the primer is great if you don’t want to wear makeup. Again, these both have the wonderful ingredients as the others as well.Overall, I would say this product review was a success and I’m so excited to be introduced to these amazing, eco-friendly products! If interested in trying them out (which I highly recommend) I would say to start off buying the HY+5 Complex kit available here online using my referral link.
In this kit comes all 5 HY+5 products and retails for $138. This is great because it allows you to try out all the products at once. Also, be sure you are following Willing Beauty Company on Instagram and Facebook and use the hashtags #willingbeauty and #HY5Challenge when you post. Again, I want to say thank you to Christy and Willing Beauty Company for involving me in this wonderful experience and allowing me to promote their incredible brand.
