My Review of Lauren Conrad Beauty Skin Care Products
Skin care is important and it’s not just about looking good. Yes, your skin does have an effect on how you feel about yourself and it’s been proven that when you look good, you feel better as well. Regular skin care is about more than that though, it helps protect you against the elements. Dry skin, itchy skin, rough skin- are all uncomfortable and a regular skin care routine helps protect you against those things.
Many times, as mothers we pass it off as not having time for it because we’re busy taking care of those around us. The truth is though, that in order for us to take care of others, we have to take care of ourselves (check out the post “The truth about Motherhood” for more on that). You don’t drive a car on empty and then get upset because it won’t go. Another point to consider is that by taking care of ourselves, we teach our children the importance of taking care of themselves as well. Isn’t that something that we want to pass on to them?
In a previous post, I created a Review of Lauren Conrad Beauty Makeup and decided to create one for the skin care line as well.
Lauren Conrad Beauty Facial Cleanser (Dry to Normal)
Said to “Cleanse your skin with this gentle, non-stripping formula that’ll leave your skin balanced and hydrated.” Like the makeup line, this product is vegan friendly, cruelty free, clean beauty and paraben free.
This facial cleanser has a light, milky feel to it. I want to absolutely love it; however, I don’t feel like it totally cleans my face. There is one review on the LC Beauty website that states they tried first without removing their eyeliner and mascara and the cleanser left absolutely no residue after washing however even after attempting multiple times I haven’t found that to be the case. I don’t wear heavy makeup( I’m actually using the Lauren Conrad Eyeliner and Mascara) so I’m not sure how it could absolutely leave no residue.
Vitamin C Oil
I was a little skeptical of the Vitamin C Oil, when I looked at the packaging online I thought that it was in a plastic peach colored bottle but it’s actually in a ceramic bottle. According to the Lauren Conrad Beauty website, the Vitamin C Oil “brightens your skin with this luminous Vitamin C oil that helps hydrate and improves skin’s overall radiance.”
To use, you squeeze a couple drops of the oil into your palm and then massage into freshly toned face and neck in an upward, circular motion. It is then recommended to follow up with face cream. This literally takes just a couple of drops; a little bit goes a long way for sure.
The Vitamin C Oil definitely leaves skin feeling hydrated and brightens it as well. It can feel a little too much at first, but it does soak into your skin to hydrate. This is one of my favorite products in the skin care line.
Common Questions about Vitamin C Oil
What is Vitamin C Oil good for?
Helps blemishes, reduces hyperpigmentation, hydrates skin giving a glow. Consistency is key to get the maximum effect.
Can People with Oily Skin Benefit From Vitamin C Oil?
While the idea of an oil may concern some, studies show that vitamin C oil can help in treating inflammationassociated with acne, treats damaged skin as well as brightens and has been shown to benefit oily skin as well.
The Face Cream (Dry to Normal)
“Helps to balance, hydrate and brighten dry to normal skin while improving the look of the skin with a non-greasy, rich, and creamy formula.” (LC Beauty)
This face cream does a fantastic job of moisturizing, hydrating and brightening skin. The clinical results on the Lauren Conrad Beauty site show:
- “100% of participants showed increase in skin moisture”
- “100% agree the product improves the texture of skin and provides more even skin”
- “100% agree my skin looks more radiant, energized, and bright”
- “100% agree that my skin has a smooth texture and felt deeply hydrated throughout the day.”
To me, this is completely accurate and I totally agree with the findings in the clinical results. The Lauren Conrad Beauty Face Cream is creamy and not greasy and does a great job of hydrating and brightening skin. I love to use it following the Vitamin C Oil to lock in moisture.
The Toner Mist
“Get balanced, hydrated skin with this misting toner that rebalances and refreshes” (LC Beauty)
Toner helps in removing any last traces of dirt and impurities in your pores and can have a positive impact on appearance and tightness of pores. The primary ingredients for the toner are listed as Rose Water, Vitamin B5, and Licorice Root Extract.
- Rose water is known for its ability to balance natural oils, reduce the appearance of temporary redness and hydrate skin.
- Vitamin B5 helps to restore the skin’s natural hydration balance while repairing damaging skin tissue.
- Licorice Root Extract may help lighten dark spots and even out skin tone.
- The toner does a great job of balancing and hydrating skin, preparing it to be treated and moisturized.
The Toner Mist is super light and refreshing. It feels like a refreshing mist on your face. It feels more lightweight than other toners that I’ve used, but I think that has more to do with the way it sprays (which I love!).
Verdict on Lauren Conrad Beauty Skin Care Line
Overall, I think this line is fantastic and affordable. My personal favorite products are the Vitamin C Oil and the Face Cream. Using consistently, I have noticed my skin is more hydrated and brighter than it previously was. Similarly, to the make up line, the skin care line is made to be vegan friendly, cruelty free, clean beauty and paraben free so while not only making you look good, you can feel good about what you are using as well. Overall, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the products in the line.
