Today's post is going to be a round up of some new products I'm trying lately. Hopefully I can give you a "mini review" for each of them, since I have formed some opinions on them. Let's get into it. This one will be skincare and I think I'll do makeup one next.
Starting us off is VIICode Oxygen Eye Mask. I have their eye cream and it's really nice. I did a whole blog post of it as well and I'll link it here. What I like about this the most is how cooling and luxurious the eye mask feels the moment you put it on. You can also put these in the refrigerator for it to be extra cold which is what I'm doing. This is supposed to be worn at night for 8 hrs but if you don't like that, you can wear them for 2-4 hours through the day. I like wearing them in the morning when I get up after I've washed my face and I'm drinking my coffee responding to emails, before I start getting ready or putting on makeup. Obviously, it's going to plump the under eye area. It stays really cool on the eyes the whole time you're wearing them. They don't slide around on you. It's houses vitamins, peptides, botanical extracts, protein, antioxidants, and fatty acids. It's meant to make you look more rested and give the under eye a more smooth and brighter look. They feel wonderful as I said. I'll leave a before and after underneath this. As you can see, hopefully, it looks brighter, the fine lines are less apparent, and it looks more hydrated as well. I, of course, still have dark under eyes but that just my eyes all the time. So I focus on hydrating them the best I can and really nourishing them so that it looks more smooth and not so sunken in. I enjoy these very much and will continue to use them. Left side is before and right side is after the Oxygen Eye Mask had been on about 3 hours.

Next up is Arcanum Facial Oil from The Alluring Alchemist. This makes me think of a lighter weight of Vintners Daughter. Liz who does the oils is a mad scientist and I love her for it. It's housed in Miron Glass so it doesn't break down from light. It's spreads very easily across the face and you have that one moment of feeling like oil on your face and then it absorbs leaving your skin so soft and looking noticeably better. She has a few more oils than this one but I love this one for sure. Her oils also beat most oils that are cult favorites.
I've also been trying the Purlisse Watermelon Energizing Aqua Balm. Which is essentially like a water cream. It smells great, duh. It's also oil free, pretty much weightless, and can work for oily-combo-normal even sensitive skin. I love the Purlisse line. This specifically is great for layering if you like have a routine with a lot of steps. Lately I've just been using this at the end of my routine and calling it a day.
Something else brand new (to me) that I'm trying is The Organic Skin Co products. They sent me quite a few products. One being a facial oil, The Good Oil, so I was on top of that as soon as I got it of course. It's Honeysuckle and Turmeric which as you know Turmeric is my go to ingredient. They have the nicest packaging. It's so simple and elegant with wooden tops and everything. So far I really enjoy what I've tried. I've not gotten to try everything they sent but I'll update you when I do. Even after that, there's still a ton of products that interest me like their cleanser and their moisturizers that look like a whipped heavy cream. The look heavenly.
So that's the newest products that I put into rotation immediately once I received them. I really am loving everything so far because basically they're all soothing. That wasn't intentional. I've really been on the hunt for all things that are soothing though. Links will be in each paragraph to each product.
