Dimitri James is the creator of Skinn Cosmetics and a writer of a book called Becoming Beauty. Now I was asked by Lisa his PR person if I would be interested in doing a review for his skincare products called SKINN .. You find them at http://skinn.com
Here is a few of the items I got to test out for my review. When asked which product would interested me to most to do a review on I asked of his Body Polish, cause its one of my favorite bath items.
They have shipping for free over $50.00 and their prices are very affordable. And their products come in more than one size.
Sweet & Smooth Body Polish
This body polish was different from other body polishes I have tested before. First off you cleanser your skin BEFORE using this product. Usually body polishes like scrubs are for cleansing and exfloation, this one is different. And if you don’t like a layer of wax like lotion feel left on your skin then this isn’t the product for you. I noticed though that once you use it you don’t need to apply body lotion at all once you get out of the shower and you have that feeling that you applied body butter still the next day. For real I have super soft legs the next day. But it does leave a layer of a wax like film on your skin and hands after applying it. So use it after you are done with your hair. So like I said its a different type of body polish I have ever used.
Olive & Enzyme Rich Balm Cleanser
This product I really enjoyed as a eye makeup remover. One reason being because I really dislike cream makeup removers for eye makeup. I tend to get it in my eyes, never fails. This time when I was testing out this item I found it removed my eye makeup, left the area around my eyes soft and didn’t hurt my eyes. Love the smell too reminds me of Natural Empathy product line. This was one product I would for sure buy, it was great as a face cleanser and if you leave it on your face for 5 to 10 minutes your face feels super soft. I would buy as a eye makeup remover. (as someone who has used the same brand of eye makeup remover years, that says a lot in my books)
Insta-Fill® Lip and Laugh Line Fill Cream
This has a very interesting feel to it. It goes on like a cream then it becomes like a powder feel to it?? I have used it a few times under lip gloss and it really does fill it in the lines I got started on my upper lip. I used to be a smoker (25 years ago quit!!) and so I got lines that a smoker might have after a few years of smoking. It filled those in nicely.
The site says:
**Nothing ages you more than those vertical lines above and below your lips.
Insta-Fill® works to remarkably and immediately fill in those aging lines and reduce their appearance over time. In addition, it stops your lipstick from feathering and changing colors.**
Its a product I will continue to use to see if it does reduce their appearance over time. I am very curious if it will or not. I haven’t had it long enough to say for sure but I do notice it does make my lipstick look better.
This next product was ok wow different indeed. Got any lip plumper junkies?? This is the one for you!!
3 Minute Lip Party Rapid Volumizing Mask
Wow this was like using a lip plumper without it being a lip gloss. Its a mask that you apply to your lips and it really has a stinging feel that shows it working. So its a lip plumper that you use before going out to a party. It different I never used a mask before. But I do love a good lip plumper.
The site says:
Using a natural extract of Chinese hot pepper, 3 Minute Lip Party Mask works to temporarily dilate the capillaries in your lips to give you a fuller, plumper and sexier pout for those special occasions.
