1. Clean & Clear – Deep Action – 60 Second Facial In The Shower
Positive: Acts fast, smells fresh and exfoliates
Negative: Once you put it on, it starts to have a very unpleasant burning sensation, which make you feel like you just burned your face off even 20 minutes after you wash it off. This is likely due to it containing an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA), which removes the top layer of dead skin. *This review is an individual’s reaction to the product, but others seem to have similar experiences.
Verdict: I threw my sample out and would never use it again.
2. Revitalift Challenge – Triple Power Intense Anti-Aging Moisturizer Challenge – 14-Day Samples
Positive: I saw a slight decrease in fine lines. The smell was fruity and refreshing.
Negative: The cream started peeling off only a few hours after putting it on in the morning. When putting it on in the evening, it feels sticky when laying on the pillow and heats up your face. It doesn’t seem to absorb well as it leaves a residue to be washed off.
Verdict: Seemed to reduce small lines, but can find a better alternative.
3. Aixallia – Green Tea Protective Day Cream
Positive: The cream has good ingredients.
Negative: Doesn’t have a pleasant smell and starts peeling throughout the day, which means that it does not absorb well.
Verdict: Will not use again due to peeling throughout the day.
4. Mario Badescu – Seaweed Night Cream
Positive: Smells good and has a sparkly green color that leaves your face feeling lush and glowing. Absorbs fast and well so it does not stick to pillows.
Verdict: One of the best creams I have tried. Will definitely use again!
5. Puer – Instant Facelift Serum
Positive: Smelled fine and was easy to apply.
Negative: It comes out watery, but once applied to your face, dries out and tightens making your face feel like there is a layer of plastic over it.
Verdict: Never again. This left my face barely able to make any facial expressions.
Clear winner: Mario Badescu – Seaweed Night Cream
