Review of Ma Mi Skincare Products

Ma Mi Skin Care

 

Ma Mi Skincare is a completely natural line of skincare products that have been clinically designed for the special needs and challenges that face women in early motherhood. Although I’m not pregnant, and never will be, I love this skincare set. No, I don’t stay up late with a crying baby, but I do stay up late working on reviews, thus the title of my blog. All these late hours that I keep means plenty of dark circles and tired skin.

Ma Mi Skin Care Gift PackI was sent a small gift pack that included the Reawaken Cleanser, Radiant Exfoliator, Satiated Moisturizer, and Night Shift Eye Serum. This set lasted a couple weeks, using it sparingly. I’m very pleased with how it made my skin look and feel. I’ve never really had a skincare set like this before, so I felt pretty pampered.

 


Reawaken Cleanser

Ma Mi Skin Care Reawaken CleanserThe Reawaken Cleanser has a nice smell to it. I’m not sure what it reminds me of, but it seems very familiar. It has a very flowery perfume smell to it.

The consistency is a little thinner than a normal gel cleanser. The lather could be a bit better. I usually need to use a couple pumps of it to get enough lather to clean my whole face. The nice thing is, it doesn’t leave my skin feeling tight and dry like other cleansers I’ve tried.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Olive Oil Castile, Vegetable Glycerin, Rose Hip Seed Oil, Oil of Kumquat, Seaweed Extracts.


Radiant Exfoliator

Ma Mi Skin Care Radient Exfoliator

You’ll need to be careful with the Radiant Exfoliator. It’s pretty much the consistency of water, which makes it a little difficult to apply without a cotton ball, which is suggested. I, however, didn’t want to use a cotton ball because I didn’t want it to soak up the Radiant Exfoliator and waste it. A cotton ball is fine when just using cheap rose water to tone my face, but this is different.

The Radiant Exfoliator definitely works well. With it’s help, I’ve been able to get rid of some blackheads that I’ve had for years. This is because the Radiant Exfoliator helps shed dead skin cells. I usually look a little flakey after using it, and gently buff my skin with a towel. This helps to remove the dead skin cells and blackheads that were loosened up.

It has a slight metallic smell to it. I’m not really sure why, but it’s nothing overpowering or bothersome.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Glycolic Acid.


Satiated Moisturizer

Ma Mi Skin Care Satiated Moisturizer

The Satiated Moisturizer is wonderful. It really doesn’t have any scent to it, but it’s very moisturizing. My skin soaks it right up.  It’s very creamy and, I’ll admit, feels a little oily when first applying it to my skin. However, once it soaks in, my skin is soft and not one bit oily.

Ingredients: Purified Water, Jojoba Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Polyacrylamide, Laureth-7, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin

I’m a little leery of Laureth-7, since EWG Cosmetics Database says that it could contain potentially toxic impurities such as 1,4-dioxane. Just so you know, C13-14 Isoparaffin is derived from petroleum. Also, for those who have skin sensitivities, phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin could trigger reactions.


Night Shift Eye Serum

Ma Mi Skin Care Night Shift Eye Serum

I love the Night Shift Eye Serum!

Being a girl of French heritage really stinks sometimes, mostly because of the dark circles under my eyes. My mother has that problem, too. Plus, me staying up late to write doesn’t really help the issue either.

The Night Shift Eye Serum is a wonderfully moisturizing gel that helps minimize the appearance of my dark circles. Mind you, I haven’t been able to get rid of them, but the Night Shift Eye Serum definitely helps.

I hadn’t told my mother I was using it, so when she asked if I had been getting more sleep or something, I knew it wasn’t just in my head that it was working. I let her know about it, and I think she’s going to look into getting some for herself.

This is one of the bottles in the gift set that still has a little left in it. You really don’t need much. One half a pea-sized squirt will take care of both eyes.

Ingredients: Seaweed Extract, Purified Water, Hyaluronic Acid, Oxido Reductases, Soy Peptide, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin

For those who have skin sensitivities, phenoxyethanol and ethylhexylglycerin could trigger reactions.

Ma Mi Skincare has some great products, and most of the ingredients are pretty safe. Although my skin has had no adverse reactions, there are some ingredients that could cause skin irritation, and one that’s derived from petroleum. Paired with wanting the cleanser to lather a little better, I’d give this set a 4.5/5. Many thanks to Ma Mi Skincare for letting me test out their products!
