Is This Best of VOLITION Kit a Must Try?

VOLITION Best Of Kit Products

While I love being able to try new beauty products, I often hesitate when it comes to testing out new skincare products. Whether it’s a new or new-to-me brand, I’m wary about how my skin may react. When I find something that works, I remain loyal for a long time – or until something else comes along that works better. With that said, I couldn’t help but jump at the chance to test out some top products from the brand VOLITION

The Best of VOLITION Kit

The Best of VOLITION Kit is “nature’s gift for dewy, bright skin.” In the past, I ran like Forest Gump any time I saw the word dewy because my skin can get a little oily. Inside the kit are three full-size products:

  • Snow Mushroom Serum Water Serum for age-defying hydration
  • Celery Green Cream for pore minimizing moisture
  • Turmeric Brightening Polish for face and body

What’s helpful, the back of the box has information about the products, the ingredients, and how to use them. This comes helpful for people not familiar with the brand, products, or what’s in them. You should always be informed about the products you’re using.

Best of VOLITION Kit Review

I enjoyed using these products. The packaging is excellent, and I would place it on my vanity. The products do have a scent, but since it’s not the synthetic fragrance that I’m allergic to, I didn’t have any issues. If you’re like me and sensitive to scents, you should be okay with these.

Both the serum and cream are a thinner consistency that absorbs into the skin beautifully. After several uses, I noticed a little shine to my skin, we’re in winter so it’s a little on the dry side. The polish is your typical skin polish, except it’s not rough on the skin. I’ve used it a few times and not once did my skin get irritated because the grains were too harsh. I may have finally found a face and body polish that’s gentle to use on my ultra-sensitive skin!

I haven’t been using these a long time, but I do like how my skin’s reacting to them. Please note that no matter what brand I use, my skin doesn’t react as quickly to skincare products as others. It usually takes more than a month before I notice a difference.

If you’re in the market for new skincare to try, I do recommend this kit. It’s a great way to try the top-selling products at a discounted price. This kit retails for $70 ($100 value), and you can pick it up online or in stores at your local SEPHORA. If you sign up for e-mails on the brand’s website, you can get 15 percent off your first order, making this an even better deal!

We Tried Three Natural Skincare Lines And We Think You’ll Love Them All

Three different skincare lines to help you target your problem areas

Beauty Brite Disclosure

I’ve talked many times about my skincare woes. Unfortunately, I am a literal oil slick and I have hormonal acne. Any slight mishap in the ingredients in my skin care routine and I have painful, red cysts popping up. Frequently, I look for skincare lines that have natural ingredients.

Recently, I tried three different skincare lines. Most Noteworthy, each line aims to deep clean pores while also being gentle on the skin. After trial and error, I have favorites from each of the skincare lines that I like and I wanted to share them all with my fellow oily peeps.

Word on the block is that a popular coffee chain dropped their yearly release of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. YUM! The symbol that fall is quickly approaching. Pumpkins will be on doorsteps, apple cinnamon candles lit, and Halloween decorations out in the no time. Did you there is one other way to sneak some pumpkin into your life? A way that doesn’t involve all the side-eyes from your friends/family because it’s only August?

Repair and Protect Hair and Skin from the Harsh Summer Weather

One of my lease favorite seasons is summer. I live in the South and it’s always 100+ degrees, even late into October. The heat damages my skin and leaves me a sweaty mess. This does not bode well for my naturally oily skin.

The application and re-application of sunscreen and make up leaves my skin clogged and looking rough. The scorching sun usually leaves me with redness and burns. Because of this, I am super careful with the products that I apply to my skin.

Shave Less with These Subtle Changes

Summer is here and the weather is HOT! It is safe to assume, we have all taken our shorts, skirts, and bathing suits out of the closet. This also means adding the extra time during our shower to shave. No more pants or sweats to cover up that hair sadly! I have to admit that shaving is my least favorite part of summer. It only takes a few minutes but I loathe feeling like the smoothness of my legs isn’t lasting as long as I would like it to.
