I have had my eye on the Fountain of Youth product line since the beginning of the year, but just got around to ordering some of their products and samples. I was especially interested in their, masks, serums, scrub and coffee bean eye balm. I was so excited that I had to give myself a treatment as soon as my package arrived.
My new product experience started off with the Dream Skin Cleanser. I was already in love with the name and happy it lived up to it. It is a clear gel with a very clean, light scent. Gluten free, vegan and formulated without synthetic dyes or fragrances.
Next, I exfoliated with the 2 in 1 Micropeel Facial Scrub. I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about using sugar on my face because most of the scrubs I use have jojoba beads, pumice, seeds, or cornmeal as the scrubby ingredient. It did feel a little scratchier than I was used to, but the results were great with the pumpkin and papaya enzyme and it didn’t harm me any. The cinnamon spice scent was pleasant. It is labeled vegan. but has a note that it contains honey. I plan on trying the Chocolate Macrofoliant next time, it is a powder of rice, oats, coconut and cocoa that you can mix with the cleanser for gentle buffing.
Okay, decisions, decisions… I wasn’t sure which mask I wanted to try first. I ordered the Bluberry Acai Masque for scarring, pigmentation, fine lines, hydration and acne and the Calming Vita Masque for sensitive, redness, pigmentation, calming and fine lines. I decided to use the sample of the Chocolate Mask instead because,( do I really have to explain why I chose chocolate?) of the antioxidant power and the wrinkle plumping hydration. It does have some exfoliating benefits from the bamboo as well. I think I will try that with the Chocolate Macrofoliant next time and call it dessert!
Now its time for toner, serum and moisturizer. I chose the Dream Skin Toner because it it balances the skin while it fights aging and daily pollution. The amazing thing about this toner is that it is gel, but then turns to liquid on your skin and just soaks in nicely. I think this is great for not wasting any mist. I LOVE IT!! It kind of reminded me of how a makeup primer creates a smooth surface. I will definitely be ordering this one. They also carry a Clear Skin Toner that is geared towards oily, acne and sensitive types. I will try that next to see the difference.
The Dream Skin Serum came next, good for fine lines, firming and calming, but also very good for acne prone skin. They say it is their top seller. I did like how it felt, but I need to use it more to see the long term benefits . I want to try the Rewind Serum that is good for pigmentation, scarring and wrinkle reduction and see how that one performs as well.
I chose Mango Tea Matte Moisturizer for it’s lightweight and balancing description, the scent is really nice and light. This one is a keeper for sure.
I didn’t use the Coffee Bean Eye Balm until the next day. I am not sure how much effect it has on puffiness yet, but I cannot stop opening the tin to sniff it. It actually has a coffee bean in there for decoration. I love coffee. It is also good for inflammation, brightening and sagging.
As much as I hate to be negative towards any company that is bringing us natural, safe products to use on our bodies, but I am conducting a review here so I must include the products that I did not care for.
Their Cakie Pie Body Cream in a boutique style jar smelling like vanilla marshmallow cupcakes seems to be a hit from the comments I have read, but even though it says natural fragrance, it is still a fragrance and I am a scent snob. It almost gave me a headache. That’s what happens when you are used to essential oils only.
I will continue using my products and samples and then I will make my decision on which ones will find their place at Robin Lemon Skin Therapy.
