🧂Eight Saints Salt🧂: The Orange

You’ve been warned. Those with heart problems, please be advised that this is a high salt content post. I joined Cherie just to spill tea about this brand in particular so enjoy my miniseries on the pitfalls of paying for pretty and overformulated products. See my first post for a general brand spotlight, but here’s the essential tea for this brand: 🍵exorbitant prices are unreasonable 🍵overlapping actives making you buy more for no reason 🍵horrible sticky sweet smells to every product 🍵formulas that combine actives generally advised to be applied separately 🍵they didn’t improve my skin in two weeks nearly enough to buy anything more from them EIGHT SAINTS - Down to Earth
I used to dive to bottom of the lake by my family’s farm and dig up the mud clay from the bottom with my cousins. We’d smear all over ourselves and then wash it off before going home. Nowadays I know a thing or two about algae and bacteria, but I would rather smear that on my face to clean it than this because it did a better job of cleansing and making my skin feel smooth and fresh. The consistency is watery and the smell as always with 8S is atrocious. There are much better mud cleansers out there, even lake clay does a better job and that stuff is free. I’ll risk the bacteria any day over this. EIGHT SAINTS - No Plans
I’m going to avoid the temptation to make a “I have no plans to use this again” joke but I’ve already said it and drawn attention to it, so I’ve lost either way. This is a decent clay mask and I truly truly tried to use this up as best I could because I wanted to give this brand a fighting chance. This isn’t heavily scented like a Willy Wonka fart like other 8S products, and it does clean the face and leave it smooth. Like its aforementioned orange sister, however, it’s not nearly impressive enough to buy for their price. If you want to splurge on a mask and have a liking for their marketing and aesthetics by all means go for it, but if you want lake clay for the cheap price of zero dollars, I can tell you where you can find it.

Product Mentioned
EIGHT SAINTS NIGHT ROUTINE 🦋
EIGHT SAINTS - Down to Earth This is definitely a gentle cleanser if that is what you are looking for! For me I feel I had to double cleanse with it, which if I’m looking for something quick, is not always something I want to do. The POSITIVE is it really did leave my skin feel clean, soft, and still very hydrated, I did not get the right uncomfortable feeling I can’t stand with some cleansers. EIGHT SAINTS - No Plans I used this on a day my boyfriend was away for the weekend because I felt it fit! And I loved it from the moment I touched it. The consistency and application was smooth and flawless. It has a slight rose fragrance which isn’t always my favorite, but it was not off putting. My skin was smooth, hydrated, and noticeably happier when I removed it. EIGHT SAINTS - Night Shift Application was easy, and it was fast absorbing. My skin did feel slightly tighter and tacky after EIGHT SAINTS - All In Light weight, but did not feel like it absorbed well. Not wowed by it. EIGHT SAINTS - High Society Hydrating without suffocating. After applying this following the night shift I felt and instant relief from the tightness. My skin drank in everything in seconds and left me with a nice glow EIGHT SAINTS - Cloud Whip Appears to be a thicker cream in the container but almost melts on contact with the warmth of the skin. It delivers beautiful hydration while minimizing pore appearance and leaving a nice even complexion. One of my favorites for sure, which I did not expect it to be! This is the recommended night routine Eight Saints recommended following with the sample kit. As a whole I feel the results were good and my skin was happy. But looking at the prices of their full sized products I’m not compelled to purchase any of their products when I run out. I feel I have gotten just as good of results with more cost effective products

My face smells like a candy shop — sticky
Wow am I deeply disappointed in this cheap sampler kit! I recently got into skincare, and like most things new to me I did a ton of research but needed to go out and try something to see the knowledge put into action. A social media ad recommended this Discovery Kit and I was hype: 10 dollars for a high-end (in price anyway) skincare routine. Clean, vegan, and aesthetic. Nice! For starters, I knew that I was going to have a tale to tell when the sample sizes were significantly smaller than the picture. Yes, they photoshopped the kit to look larger. Hey — not a big deal, they said each sample was less than an ounce so who’s complaining? Not me! Sadly this was the first of many wools pulled over my proverbial eyes. Okay, let’s get serious: this whole brand is way overpriced and not that impressive. My skin didn’t look or feel better after a couple of weeks, not nearly enough for me to want to buy into their $600 (yes that much) routine. I couldn’t even find a single product I liked enough to use the included coupon for. I’m not going to this brand again. It’s the epitome of branding and buzz words slapped onto a lousy product. Not only that, but most of their overpriced products overlap in ingredients and even have ingredients that aren’t usually recommended together in the same product. Their name comes from the idea that only 8 skincare ingredients are effective, but using combos of those 8 makes it look like they ran out of ideas. The overlap in all of their products makes it seem like I’m getting bamboozled into layering the same thing over and over. Like a child who has to paint a rainbow with two colors. Apparently my skin also was confused because these products did nothing to my skin and even felt icky when I used them. I tried taking products slowly out of the routine to find holy grails but everything made me feel gross in some way. I’ll admit I discarded the worst offenders before using them all the way up, they just bothered me that badly. Steer clear of this overpriced, ineffective, and downright icky skincare.

Happy #watershotwednesday 💦
⠀ Today’s water shot is brought to you by my little brother being grounded and having nothing to do so he wanted to help me shoot! He may just become my new personal assistant haha. ⠀ I am so excited to share with you my 3 favorite products from @eight_saints . ⠀ As many of you know I have been trying out their discovery kit for the last week and though some of the products unfortunately didn’t work for me I am so happy that these 3 did. ⠀ 💧 Pep Rally: this hyaluronic acid serum i wasn’t actually surprised I enjoyed as I haven’t been able to find one that hasn’t left my skin feeling sticky. Not only does this one not feel sticky on my skin but it soaks into my skin rather quickly and leaves my skin so hydrated. Can be used in the morning and at night. EIGHT SAINTS - Pep Rally Gel Radiance Serum ⠀ 💧 No Plans: This desert rose mask is a new favorite of mine! It is a natural kaolin clay mask that helps to detox your skin while maintaining hydration. It’s easy to wash off and doesn’t irritate my skin. I use this at night 1-2 times a week. ⠀EIGHT SAINTS - No Plans 💧Daydreamer: This moisturizer is one of my favorites to use in the morning because of its light texture and moisturizing factors. It includes hyaluronic acid as well as organic oils and botanicals to give your skin hydration throughout the day. I prefer to use this in the morning. EIGHT SAINTS - Daydreamer ⠀ ⠀ *PR but thoughts are my own* ⠀

Two of my favourite things at
Two of my favourite things at the moment and both are from Polaar. 🌸The grainy one is the Ice Pure Scrub with Arctic Cotton, I use once a wheek and I love it, it leaves my skin smooth, hydrated and redness free. 🌸Second one is their Ice Source Hydrating Mask with Glacier Water - it’s amazing, and it makes my skin feel hydrated, soft and just comfortable. .

botanicfarm's grain ferment cl
botanicfarm's grain ferment cleanser may be my favorite balm cleanser yet! It's so silky and buttery and rich feeling and emulsifies well. I'm usually more of an oil cleanser girl because I find the pump bottles so convenient but I may become a convert with this one! botanic eye patches the black soybean pudding pack smells so delicious. It's actually a bit distracting because it makes me hungry when I'm wearing it lol!

The perfect time saving mask ⏰
The perfect time saving mask ⏰ I love a relaxing face mask as much as the next person, but we don't always have a spare 20 minutes to relax and enjoy them. As much as I do try and set aside as much time as possible for my skin, there sometimes just aren't enough minutes in the day. Which is where the Dr Jart+ Dermaclear Trans-Foam Clay Pink comes into play. This clay-to-foam transforming face wash from drjart is formulated to deeply cleanse, remove dirt and oil, and leaves skin looking fresh and healthy. I put it on dry skin for three minutes, then wash away with water, so it foams and my skin is clean ✨

I can't say enough good t
💙💚 I can't say enough good things about arilanskincare. The gentle facial cleanser with rose hip smells so light & fresh and leaves skin feeling so soft & clean. The oxygenating eye & face mask is incredible. The beautiful clear-blue jelly feels so cool & fresh on your skin, and applies really easily. If your looking for gentle products for your daily skincare routine, I very much recommend you give these a try. I can't say I've seen any changes since using, but being that I'm a skincare o' holic, I probably wouldn't be able to notice with all the other products I use and try day to day. One thing I can say is that the cleanser definitely helped my breakouts clear up, and I've not had any since.

Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer
Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Description: Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer are created to suit the hectic schedules of modern urbanites, this product harnesses the goodness of nature and translates that into freshness and vitality for the skin. Made with premium ingredients sourced from various parts of the world, this 10-second mask is filled with the vitality and freshness from nature to ensure your skin stays healthy and clean everyday. Impression ||| The consistency is thick gels and filled with little pieces of leaves of their featured ingredients respectively. Applied all over my face thinly and let it sit for about 10 to 20 seconds and then lather it into foams, massage my face for a little bit before washing it off. The scents might be a little bit overpowering for some but it doesn't linger. Thoughts ||| As I've got both Rose and Green Tea, I do find these only slightly different as I do felt refreshed, skin became smoother and what I like the most is how well my skincare being absorbed into my skin even though I was just doing 7-Skin method in the morning and sometimes on lazy nights. I don't use these everyday as they can be intense especially for sensitive skin. Mask-to-foam is definitely a first for me and I do think these can be a game changer in anyone's skincare routine. Just don't let it sit on your skin longer than what's recommended. Overall, 4/5. I do like it and will repurchase.

I thought I’d feature the Fres
I thought I’d feature the Fresh Slate Vitamin C & Enzymes Brightening Cleanser, which can also be used as a mask. This creamy peach two-in-one cleanser strengthens skin’s protective barrier and gently exfoliates while nourishing skin with blend brighteners, antioxidants, and hydrating with organic Argan and Safflower Oil. This cleanser activates as soon as you start massaging it into your skin, by using a water-activated Vitamin C and fruit-derived enzymes.  Or leave it on for 10 minutes as a brightening mask, I’ve been really loving using both cleansers as masks.
