You have likely heard of The Better Skin Co. Mirakle Cream, which has become a cult classic, but you may not have heard about any of their other products– some of which I am very pleased to share with you. They create highly effective products that do precisely what they claim, that are a pleasure to use and that are affordable.
Lava Magik: Cleanser-Scrub-Mask ($32.00 for oz. from The Better Skin Co., Bloomingdale's, b-glowing, Dermstore, Ulta and b-glowing Amazon Store): This three-in-one cleanser, scrub and mask has a non-lathering formula that thoroughly cleans the skin while exfoliating dead skin cells. It has lots of tiny exfoliating particles that do an exemplary job removing dead skin cells, and therefore I recommend using a very light hand, since they effectively work without any pressure needed. If you don't use a lot of water to activate it you can simply leave it on the skin for about 5 minutes to draw out impurities, and the result is soft, smooth, supple skin. Lava Magik looks like raspberry sorbet, and it has a very pleasant aroma that is punctuated by Orange Peel Oil.
Directions: Daily Cleanser: Use pea sized amount mixed with water, apply to wet skin. Scrub: Twice weekly, apply to wet skin, massage desired areas in circular motion for 30 to 60 seconds. Mask: Once or twice weekly, apply to wet or dry skin (as preferred), leave on 3 to 6 minutes. For additional exfoliation, moisten ﬁnger tips and massage in a circular motion while removing. Adjust product to water ratio based on skin type. Slightly more product for combination or normal to oily skin and less product for dry, sensitive skin. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Pat dry.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Pumice, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Carum Petroselinum (Parsley) Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Iron Oxides (CI 77491).
Zit No More ($18.00 for 0.2 oz. from The Better Skin Co., b-glowing, Dermstore, Ulta and The Better Skin Store Amazon Store): If you are seeking a very effective pimple treatment that is perfect for either periodic breakouts or those that are more frequent, then Zit No More is worthy of your attention. The roller ball applicator lends itself to very easy application, and the potent and effective formula quickly dries out and eliminates pimples, and therefore I would recommend being careful not to get it on the skin near the pimple since it will dry it out. I would suggest spot testing this if you have sensitive skin because it is quite active, and the Tea Tree Oil makes the skin tingle while the Salicylic Acid exfoliates and heals acne. I only periodically have breakouts, which usually consists of a single pimple, and therefore I only use this as a spot treatment when needed, but I find it very effective.
According to The Better Skin Co.,

Mirakle Cream ($34.00 for 2 oz. from The Better Skin Co., b-glowing, Dermstore, b-glowing Amazon Store, Bloomingdale's and Ulta): This is a rich and creamy, and yet lightweight and fast absorbing, multipurpose face and body cream. It is intensely moisturizing, and it feels wonderfully refreshing on the skin. It rapidly heals dry patches and quickly leaves skin soft, supple, hydrated and luminous. Additionally, I find it quite soothing during the warmer and colder months when skin is subject to temperature fluctuations between the heated or cooled interiors and hot or cold exteriors.

I was unfamiliar with this brand, but now I’m really curious about the Mirakle Cream. I was I had had the rollerball years ago. And the cleanser/mask/scrub looks delightful!ReplyDelete
The Mirakle Cream is definitely worth trying out. Yes, Lava-Magik is delightful, and it looks like raspberry sorbet!Delete
Lava Magik is now on my “to try” list for my next Ulta shopping adventure!ReplyDelete
I definitely recommend trying Lava Magik! I think that you will like it, Judy!!Delete
Benzoyl peroxide is the only thing that helps my acne. Tea tree is helpful, but Salicylic doesn't do much other than irritate and dry me out.ReplyDelete
Then this one definitely is not going to be a good fit for your skin.Delete
The cleansing scrub mask and the Mirakle Cream both sound amazing! I've been hearing raves about that cream and I need to pick up a jar and see if it works for my skin.ReplyDelete
It is a really effective cream, and definitely worth trying out!Delete
I don't believe that I've seen this brand before. The products sound effective and their packaging is so pretty.ReplyDelete
It's a really great brand to try!Delete
I'm a huge fan of The Better Skin Co. The original moisturizer is so incredibly soothing. I'm out of it now but whenever I'd have problems with my skin looking bad I'd cut everything out and go back to this. Highly recommend it.ReplyDelete
Me too! It is very soothing!Delete
wow, the range looks and sounds really nice.ReplyDelete
It really is. It's definitely a brand worth trying.Delete
I like that the Zit No More Acne Treatment comes in a roller ball. That is genius for spot treatment application!ReplyDelete
Yes, the roller ball is very convenient for application.Delete
