What Else You Need to KnowAlpyn Beauty combines wild Jackson Hole plants with a sophisticated cocktail of natural hydrators, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin F, and nature’s retinol in this cream that nurtures and plumps the appearance of skin.

What exactly is a ‘Melt’ moisturizer? ☁️
What exactly is a ‘Melt’ moisturizer? ☁️
Alpyn gifted me their alpyn beauty - PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer complimentary for my honest review. Alpyn claims this moisturizer is a whipped, anti-aging moisturizer that contains antioxidants, ceramides, and bakuchiol. It’s a cream formulation that is $60 for 1.7 fl oz. It’s said to target fine lines, wrinkles, dryness, and loss of elasticity. The bakuchiol is what initially drew me into this product. It is a natural alternative to retinol. When I looked at the ingredient list I found it was more than halfway down the list which was disappointing. What I disliked even more was the orange oil and lavender oil halfway through the list. When you open this jar (which is glass with a metal lid! But that’s about where all the props end for me) you immediately get that whiff of orange. I tend to stay away from products with both these oils because they can be very sensitizing to the face. When they say melt they completely mean melt as well. The whipped, cream formulation is nice at first but it offers no moisture benefits to the skin. It has hyaluronic acid and squalane pretty high up on the ingredient list but the minute this absorbs into my skin (which is pretty fast) I feel dry. I have oily skin so I can’t imagine how someone with dry skin would feel using this. Overall this product really does nothing for me and I can’t get past the orange and lavender oil. I think it’s extremely over priced for a moisturizer as well. I don’t think it’s worth it and I wouldn’t recommend.

To take a page from my friend @Mallorywho does #samplesaturday - sharing mine a day late 🤗 To purchase list (TPL)- YES or NO? alpyn beauty - PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer While I only got two 2 of this in 1 day, am & pm, I was able to determine it’s not for me. The scent was off-putting, a very natural scent which I wouldn’t mind if it didn’t linger. It’s also got some oils in it that can be irritating. At $60 this is a very pricey moisturizer. It claims the benefits of Bakuchiol (retinol alternative), Squalane and Vitamin C BUT you don’t see these ingredients until over half way through the ingredient list! TPL - NO REN CLEAN SKINCARE - Evercalm Overnight Recovery Balm $49 I really liked this. I like to really moisturize up at night so I would add my nightly moisturizer and top off with a thin layer of this balm. I had no issues with a sticky mess and my hair (or pet hair) all over my face as I have had with a previous balm. One ⭐️ taken for fragrance. TPL - YES DIOR - Capture Dreamskin Care & Perfect A gorgeous primer/serum but incredibly overpriced at $120! Not as fragrant as some I’ve used before being it has the added fragrance but there are more reasonably priced options available, Tatcha’s primer even being half the price! TPL - NO TATCHA - The Silk Peony Melting Eye Cream $60 This eye cream is THICK! It’s more like a balm that is meant to melt into your skin. For me it was hard to spread around my eye area. I would try to warm up between my fingers first but just didn’t find it easy to work with. I’m not a fan of using fragrance around my eyes either. While I love Tatcha I have other eye creams I’d rather use. I also did not like product in this type of container, very small and not sanitary given the texture. TPL - NO SUNDAY RILEY - Good Genes All in One Lactic Acid Treatment $120. I believe I’ve talked about this one before. It is such a small sample but a tiny (pea-size) amount is only needed. So I was able to determine this was non-irritating to my skin. It’s got a pretty decent ingredient list except for the fragrance. I prefer using Farmacy’s Honeymoon Glow with AHA & BHA at half the price. TPL - NO Murad - Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum $72. While I initially thought this was working for me I’ve realized it may have brightened some areas of skin but did not help fade or reduce my spots. A pretty simple serum to use with no issues in my routine. TPL - NO LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer $33 A HIGHLY popular toner that has a pretty simple ingredient list. I love a good hydrating toner and this hits the spot! It’s easy to transfer from my hands to my face and my skin drinks it up. I was able to add as many layers as I’d like without any side effects. Only downside is Laneige is not cruelty free. TPL - NO ❤️🍒

#alpynbeautygiftedme their PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer 🌱 It is thick with a light pink color that is meant to hydrate and brighten skin! I have combo skin that is sensitive and acne prone. Ok so this has a LOT going on ingredient wise. It’s almost like a do-it-all moment. I’m talking Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Bakuchiol, Squalane, you name it. I love the crisp light scent of this and find it to be a light moisturizer. It didn’t make me sticky or oily at all. This did pile a bit for me when applied more heavily so that’s something to be on the lookout for but it wasn’t bad by any means. I also get a little tingly from this and red so maybe more of a night product for me but I like the idea of a multitasker product in the sense that it can remove steps from a routine which I do day and night and save time. I think this brand is definitely one to keep an eye on🌲 Swipe for goodness💕 Have you tried them yet? Four stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️alpyn beauty - PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer

night cream: one empty one newbie
night cream: one empty one newbie
This post is about two creams I’ve been using at night! The meebak - Cica Face Cream Moisturizer and the alpyn beauty - PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer . I emptied the Meebak cream and didn’t repurchase it, but instead opened the Alpyn Beauty cream (both gifted). I didn’t repurchase the Meebak cream because it was very basic and lackluster, but now I’m finding the same problem with Alpyn. It’s not very special and all the best ingredients are near the bottom. Claims: — Meebak: super calming, anti aging, rebuilds skin barrier, constantly hydrates — Alpyn: hydrating, anti aging, fights wrinkles, tightens pores Key Ingredients: — Meebak: hyaluronic acid, ceramides, niacinamide, cica, retinol — Alpyn: bakuchiol, vitamin c, ceramides, squalane Price: — Meebak: $20 — Alpyn: $60 Overall: — Meebak: kind of a simple, basic cream. It does the job and hydrates my skin well, but not extremely. I don’t find myself with glowing skin after using this at all. The price is fair for a moisturizer this simple, but I would even go for Elf’s hello hydration cream over this. It’s fairly lightweight and sinks in fast. — Alpyn: unfortunately I don’t like this one either, and perhaps like the Meebak cream a bit more. The price on this is astronomical and I really cannot afford this haha. The cream has an odd smell and also contains MICA, which is upsetting. The key ingredients are pretty low on the ingredients list, and I always have a hard time rubbing in this cream. I’m left with a streaky face and a hard time getting this to sink in because it’s insanely thick. At the end of the day, I wouldn’t repurchase either of these again.

Pretty in pink!
Pretty in pink!
The Alpyn Beauty Melt Moisturizer is so beautiful and smells very earthy! It has a very beautiful pink tint to it. I enjoy this moisturizer but it is not my favorite. It is very thick, and sometimes leaves a dry egg feeling on my face. Which is a no for me. I have very dry and sensitive skin so I though it would be perfect for me! I ended up giving it to my mom who has combo skin and she loved it! She likes it so much that I bought her a new one for her birthday! It is a beautiful skincare line, and I absolutely love the little meanings behind some of their products. For example the pink color of their products is meant to mimic the alpynglow!

It was love at first use with
It was love at first use with this moisturizer. It is thicker than what I typically use. It hydrates, soothes, and renews my skin. The scent is very subtle, but every time I put it on, I get just a faint whiff of the mountain air where this was created. It really lifts my spirits and reminds me of home. I didn't know a moisturizer could do that. alpyn beauty - PlantGenius Melt Moisturizer
