Give Your K-Beauty a Super Fruit Upgrade

Give Your K-Beauty a Super Fruit Upgrade
Beauty Brite Disclosure

Every now and again a surprise package shows up at my door. It makes me feel like a kid on their birthday. You can imagine my excitement when FaceTory unexpectedly sent me their Lux Plus box to review. Because I had so much fun with their March 7 Lux Box, I couldn’t wait to try out some new Super Fruit infused K-Beauty products.

Get Your Super Fruit Glow On
K-Beauty Super Fruit_Facetory Lux Plus Box

When I opened my Lux Plus Box, I was intrigued by array of products. We have a full size cleanser, serum, and konjac sponge, as well as three sheet masks, and a mini hand cream set. All of which feature super fruit botanicals as part of their ingredient lists.

In addition to the products, the box also comes with a handout guide that provides details about each item. I especially like the key ingredient and direction sections.  It is a nice, helpful bonus.

The Lotus Jeju Botanical pH Balancing Cleanser
Super Fruit The Lotus Cleanser

One of the first products I gravitated towards was The Lotus Cleanser. I’m a sucker for beautifully designed packaging like the one featured on the cleanser box. I was also intrigued by the key ingredients of Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract and Nelumbo Nucifera Leaf Extract. I had a sneaking suspicion I was going to love this cleanser thanks to my previous use of aloe vera based products. They are so hydrating and nonirritating on my sensitive, dry skin.

My instincts were correct. This gel to foam cleanser leaves my skin balanced and free of impurities without feeling stripped of moisture. It’s so gentle and works exceptionally well with the konjac sponge.

Like the aloe based cleanser, I’ve also used a Konjac Sponge before. It’s such a unique tool. Made from the konjac root, the sponge naturally cleanses and exfoliates your skin. While it’s ideal for acne prone skin, it can be used on all skin types because it very mildly exfoliates and removes dirt and oil.

K-Beauty Super Fruit_ Cleanser and Konjac Sponge Use

I use it once or twice a week to help give my skin an extra boost of dead skin removal and cleansing. You can use the sponge alone or add a cleanser to it. I like to pair it with The Lotus Cleanser for a nice super fruit treatment. Once I’m done, I rinse out the sponge and place it in a konjac container I have from Julep. This helps keep it protected and from drying out.

Puregen Multi Collagen Power Lifting Serum
Super Fruit Puregen Serum

Next up in the land of super fruit, we have the Puregen serum. I don’t know how I lived without serums before incorporating them into my skincare routine. They really do make a huge difference, and this serum is no exception. It’s both lightweight and very nourishing.

Puregen Super Fruit Serum Use

With key ingredients like Hydrolyzed Collagen and Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, my skin gets a boost of hydration, as well as anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits. My skin absolutely loves this serum, and I love how soft and nourished it feels all day and all night.

Super Fruit Sheet Masks
Super Fruit Infused Facial Masks

As I mentioned above, in addition to full size skincare products, the Lux Plus box also comes with 3 sheet masks. This time I received the Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask 2x Raspberry Lentil, Huangjisoo Centella Repairing Mask, and the FaceTory Let’s Talk Vitality Mask. I enjoyed treating my skin to all three.

First up, I used the Centella Mask, which features Centella Asiatica and Tremella Fuciformis Extract. These ingredients help heal and protect, while also brightening and evening out skin tone. The mask does have a strong floral, fruit scent, but it’s not so overpowering that it makes hard to wear for the suggested 15-20 minutes. It fit my face well and left my skin feeling refreshed, hydrated, and very soft.

Next, I used The FaceTory Let’s Talk Vitality Mask.  This mask features Punica Granaturn Fruit Extract and Shea Butter. These ingredients help soften the skin, while also delivering anti-oxidant rich properties that help reduce the signs of aging.

K-Beauty Facetory Mask Wear

Of the three masks I tried, this one was my favorite. I like the thick consistency of the mask, which helped it adhere well to my face. It was also very cooling and left my skin feeling soft and hydrated and looking plump.

Finally, we have the Ariul Juice Cleanse Mask. This unique mask features a nourishing Raspberry and Lentil filled essence, which helps your skin fight off free radicals. The essence also works to brighten and tighten skin, while increasing hydration.

Though it does take a little more effort to mix the essence with the mask, it’s also kind of fun. I did have some issues getting the mask to align and adhere to my face. While the mask was soothing, it did feel a  little intense on my skin. However, I did love seeing how glowy my face looked after I took the mask off.  

Duft & Doft Mini Hand Creams Set
K-Beauty Mini Hand Creams

Finally we have the super fruit packed mini hand cream set. As someone who can’t be without hand cream, most of the time, I am happy to have these in my collection. I keep one in my purse and another in my car.

The set includes four hand creams in four different scents. There is a nice range of fruity, floral, and musky, which I like. What I appreciate most is the texture. Formulated with shea butter and collagen, all of the hand creams are super hydrating without being greasy. I especially appreciate this when I’m in the car. I know I can apply my hand cream and not have to worry about my hands sliming up the steering wheel.

And bonus, they also help to reduce the signs of aging. I really like this because your hands are one of the first parts of your body to show age.

I’m so glad FaceTory sent me their Lux Plus box to try. It’s an affordable way to try unique K-Beauty products. I’m really loving the Super Fruit theme of this box and the results I’ve experienced with all the products.

Pre-Teen Skincare Doesn’t Have To Be Complicated

Pre-Teen Skincare Doesn't Have To Be Complicated

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I see it asked a dozen different times in several mom groups I follow on Facebook, what skin care products should I get for my pre-teen? I then see another dozen different responses on what companies, which specific products worked for their child, why they didn’t like another recommendation provided, and the list goes on and on. But, let’s not make it any more complicated than we need to. Every skin type follows the basic principles when it comes to finding a routine that works best. Pre-teen skincare is no different.

Skincare With Five Ingredients Or Less

Skincare With Five Ingredients Or Less - Fyve Lip Balm and Fyve Melting Facial Cleanser

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It seems as though finding skincare and beauty products gets harder every day. Looking at the labels on the back of bottles becomes quite the event when trying to decipher all of those hard to pronounce ingredients. I try my best to use products that are advertised as natural or vegan but sometimes you have those go to favorites that you just can’t get rid of. For me – those products are my Carmex lip balm and my Neutrogena face wash.

I have the worst time with acne and dry lips and I can never find natural products with clean ingredients that I like.

I had the pleasure of testing a brand that uses FIVE ingredients or less in all of their products and I am hooked.

My entire life I wished I was one of those perfect woman genetically blessed with flawless, radiant skin. In reality, I’m a hormonal woman that dealt with acne on a fairly regular basis. However, changing up my lifestyle routine has helped incredibly; clean-eating, water, and daily exercise have done so much good for my complexion. Still, I’m occasionally plagued with a nasty pimple or two.

Care for your skin with targeted skincare

Care for your skin with targeted skincare

Beauty Brite Disclosure
I rarely have the opportunity to try a whole skincare line let alone one that targets what I am looking for. The last time I remember using a skincare line was when my mom and I went to the department store and bought a set which also came with a free gift. It was so much fun because we ended up getting two free gifts and a ton of samples with our purchase. There have been other instances of using a skincare line, that story is just a fun memory I have from my teenage years.
