She Cosmetics First Impressions

May 15, 2017


She Cosmetics is a natural skincare line founded by mother-daughter duo, Diana and Brittney Douglas. They are based in California and are strong believers in the "healing powers of nature." If you are all about natural and organic skin care products I highly suggest you look into this line. And to read more about their story click here.

The star of this post is their Antioxidant Peptide Face Creme, which I won in a giveaway they were hosting on their Instagram account. This face creme retails for $55 USD, but if you visit their website now you can use the coupon code "Welcome" for 25% off your order! I was drawn toward this specific face creme because I was looking for something to help my skin battle the everyday pollutants I would encounter throughout the day.

The Antioxidant Peptide Face Creme claims to "rejuvenate, nourish, and hydrate skin on a cellular level." It is supposed to moisturize and heal dry skin, which we all know I am a victim of, fight against wrinkles and overall improve the elasticity and texture of your skin. This face creme is ideal and marketed for those with dry skin and or for those who are looking for something anti-aging (aka someone like me!!) To see the full list of ingredients click here.

The product has a slight hint of orange and applies super smooth. Since this is a first impressions, I don't really have a lot to say about this product. But so far so good! I've used this about three or four times now and it hasn't broken me out. It does moisturize my dry skin, but not sure about what it's done for wrinkles, because as I said before I haven't yet used this product enough to see any difference. Overall, I can see myself repurchasing this for it's moisturizing powers, especially for the drier months ahead!
 Along with the face creme they sent me three small samples of their other products. The three samples they sent me were of their Synergy Serum, Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub, and their Skin Brightening Oxygen Mask.

  1. Synergy Serum ($35) The Synergy Serum is one of She Cosmetic's most popular items. It is suitable for all skin types and according to their website, claims to "provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, 96% reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of free radicals in sun exposed skin." So for all of those who expect to be out in the sun this upcoming summer, I would say this is something you'd want to look into! The product doesn't have a scent to it, and it applies easily onto the skin. I did notice that it took some time to set and made my skin feel a bit sticky while I was waiting for it to dry and absorb into the skin. However, once it did dry up, my skin felt moisturized and plump! 
  2. Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub ($30) The Blueberry Cranberry Oxygen Scrub is what caught my attention the most. I love anything fruity so this was right up my alley. The scrub is created to gently exfoliate the face to restore freshness while also packing your skin with Antioxidants and the vitamins it needs to stay looking healthy. This is suitable for all skin types and worked really well with my dry skin. The texture of this product is of a gel consistency with micro-beads in them. It was not abrasive against the skin whatsoever. Highly considering purchasing the full size of this!
  3. Skin Brightening Oxygen Mask ($35) The first thing I want to mention about this mask is how wonderful it smells! And yes, you guessed it, it smells likes berries. Just like the Oxygen Scrub, this includes blueberries and cranberries to help fight signs of aging. This mask also incorporates fruit pulp to give brightening benefits to your skin. As much as I couldn't wait to use this mask, the moment I did, I had to wash it off, because it just burned my skin. I tried using it a second, and even a third time, but each time it would cause a burning feeling on my skin. I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that, but I think it's because my skin is so dry and sensitive, that my skin couldn't handle it. However, my skin did appear brighter after washing off the mask, so it does do what it claims. But I don't think I'd be willing to sit and have my skin feel like it's burning, for the sake of beauty haha. But don't let my experience with this mask deter you from purchasing it! 
So if you're someone who loves natural and organic beauty products She Cosmetics is a brand I would look into for sure! I am not being paid or sponsored by them to write this post, so you can believe me when I say all the opinions about these products are entirely my own. I've been in contact with the company and they are super genuine and sweet! Don't hesitate to check them out! Bonus fact: They are vegan and cruelty-free!
