7 Less Known but Top Notch Beauty Products

Note: hydrating products are not the best during harsh winters, but they are must-haves during other seasons.

1. Cosmetic Solutions Hydra B5 Masque

It is not the hydrating effect that makes Cosmetic Solutions Hydra B5 Masque stand out. Cosmetic Solutions Hydra B5 Masque is effective for face tightening and lifting.

Update: I no longer recommend Cosmetic Solutions Hydra B5 Masque. The one I purchased recently was much more watery. The masque no longer has the texture and effect it had before. July 8, 2018.

2. Arcona Hydrating Serum

Use this before sunscreen in the morning. Your face will instantly look less puffy and stay dewy.

3. Kirkland Body Lotion (to use on the face)

It is called body lotion, but the ingredient list shows that it is better than most of the expensive face creams (for example, you can compare the ingredients of Kirkland Body Lotion with the ingredients of L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream). Too many face creams cause acne to me. Kirkland body lotion is one of the few that never cause acne, and it helps improve my skin.

4. Yes To Cucumbers Gentle Milk Cleanser

Apply Yes to Cucumbers Gentle Mild Cleanser on dry skin either with a cotton round or your fingertips. Then, rinse it off. There is not much cucumber extract to sooth the skin. Instead, the product never dries the skin because of its gentle cleaning agents.

5. Dr. Bronner’s Naked Organic Lip Balm

I have super dry lips. Very few lip balms work. Dr. Bronner’s Naked Organic Lip Balm is effective and has only safe ingredients in case they get swallowed.

6. Mill Creek Botanicals Henna Conditioner

Henna makes hair smooth and shining, but it is a mess and tints the hair. Mill Creek Botanicals Henna Conditioner provides the benefit without the shortcomings. Because it is silicone free, you can use it alone without using shampoo.

7. Out of Africa 100% Pure Shea Butter Bar Soap – Unscented

Washing hands keeps us healthy, but it dries our skin (a place that tells a woman’s age). Out of Africa 100% Pure Shea Butter Bar Soap does not dry out the skin even in harsh winters. The ingredients are also simple and safe.
