Okay, so I received these ZENMED products months ago to review and between work and school I haven’t really had the time to blog as much as I would like to. Now that I switched my schedule up, I finally have the time to blog near full-time (I’m still in school, too). The other reason I waited so long was because my skin has been crazy over the last few months and it’s been severely dry, very breakout-y, and, when I first tried these products, they weren’t working the way that I think they should have.

So, anyway, I received six products to review and, even though I still haven’t really used the products as much as I would have liked to before writing up the review, I just wanted to (finally) get this post up. Many of these products are the type that you need to use for at least a few days to see real results, but I think I got at least a general feel for them and I’m happy that my skin is normal again so I can finally use whatever products I want.

My skin was near-perfect — I never really had any problems, no matter what products I used — so it was a little difficult for me to adjust this winter to a completely different skin type. I’m happy I’m now pretty much back to normal and I’m going to be using these ZENMED products especially over the next few weeks because, at the very least, they are extremely promising.

ZENMED products are described as “doctor formulated”, holistic skincare that merges “functioning naturals” with “proven medicinal actives.” All of their products contain potent formulations for “immediate and dramatic results.” They have so many different products, (including moisturizers, scrubs, serums, cleansers, and more) for a number of different skin types and concerns, ranging from acne and rosacea, to scars, anti-aging, and sun protection. It would pretty much be impossible to not find a product that’s right for your skin on the ZENMED website.

ZENMED products are Vegan and 100% cruelty-free, and they are also free of dyes, fragrances, sulfates, and petrochemicals. Their packaging is 100% recyclable and organically sourced ingredients are used whenever possible. I thought it was necessary to give a little overview of the company since their natural, medicinal formulations, and cruelty-free products are such a huge part of their brand.

ZENMED Oil-Free Day Lotion

The first product is this oil-free daily moisturizer. I used this lotion a few times when I first got it, and I liked it, but I knew my friend Natalia would get more use out of it so I passed it along to her and it worked well for her. This lotion is more for combination-oily skin types, and, even when I was breaking out more over the winter, my skin still wasn’t oily … it was very DRY. Way drier than ever. For those who breakout and have OILY skin (or really for anyone who doesn’t have dry skin), this lotion should work very well. It even has “special mattifying agents” to “keep greasy skin under control for 24 hours,” and it won’t interact with other acne treatments.

ZENMED Oil-Free Day Lotion ($24.95 for 2.5 oz.; zenmed.com) is described as a “water-based, lightweight moisture lotion” created for oily to combination skin types. It contains “micro-mattifying agents” to help control oil levels “while providing healing moisture,” and it will not clog pores or cause shine. This moisturizer contains “high concentrations” of Vitamins B5 and E, which “leave the skin feeling and looking supple and nourished,” and it is ideal for use on sensitive skin, or even after an exfoliation treatment. It is described as a “soothing, neutral pH moisturizer” that can be used as often as needed.

Like I said — extremely promising product with great ingredients. I liked the way this moisturizer felt on my skin, but it really wasn’t the best choice for me because I need more of a hydrating moisturizer than one that’s supposed to control oil levels and mattify skin. I still felt hydrated after using it, but there are moisturizers out there that are much better for my normal-to-dry skin type. My friend, who has more oily skin, found that this worked very well, so I would definitely recommend it to people with sensitive, oily-combination skin.

ZENMED Derma Cleanse Acne Gel

Okay, so THIS stuff is good for anybody at all who ever gets breakouts (which is pretty much everyone). A little bit of this gel goes a long way, and I love using it as a spot treatment. I’ll apply a tiny bit of this gel on a breakout at night and it will be almost completely gone by the next morning (or at least it seems to drastically shrink the zit). I’ve used a bunch of similar blemish serums, and this one was one of the best I have tried, plus it comes in a huge bottle (2 ounces), so it will definitely last for awhile.

ZENMED Derma Cleanse Acne Gel ($24.99 for 2 oz.; zenmed.com) is described as a “highly-absorptive, dual-acid Acne treatment gel” that was created to “heal pimples faster, prevent skin damage, and clear your overall complexion.” When applying this gel to breakout areas, you can expect “a far quicker healing time than by leaving the skin untreated,” and by increasing this healing time, ZENMED says that you will prevent the inflammation process from causing unneeded damage to the skin, which could lead to scarring. This gel also “prevents new Acne from forming by preventing excessive build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.”

This gel definitely worked for me and I saw near-instant results. Any product that produces results so quickly always gets an A in my beauty book.

ZENMED Dermacleanse Acne Mask & Spot Treatment

 

I passed this next product along to the same friend that I gave the day cream to because I found that, like the day cream, it wasn’t the best formulation for my normal-dry skin, especially over the last few months when my skin was extra super dry. I was actually a little disappointed that I couldn’t use it because it’s a multitasking, dual-purpose product (my favorite kind of product), that can be used as a mask AND a spot treatment for breakouts.

My skin was so whacky this winter and I have never really dealt with the issues that I had ever in my life before, so I wasn’t really sure what products would work well, and a lot of the stuff I tried out was very trial-and-error. ZENMED has plenty of other multitasking products that would work well for people like me with a more dry skin type, but this product just irritated my (super dry) skin a little too much so I couldn’t really use it.

ZENMED Dermacleanse Acne Mask & Spot Treatment ($24.95 for 4 oz.; zenmed.com) is described as a “Montmorillonite-clay based Acne treatment that helps heal pimples fast and prevent excessive oil buildup on the skin.” You can apply this product as a mask to affected areas to clarify pores and help draw impurities out, or you can use it as a spot treatment to reduce the severity of redness and inflammation and speed up healing. Like I said, I’m a little disappointed this product didn’t work for me because it sounds so promising, but I bet it works perfectly for those with more oily skin types.

ZENMED Renewing MicroDermabrasion Complex

Now that my skin is finally back to normal, I am able to use this scrub and I am loving it. I’m not going to lie, this stuff can be a bit harsh, and that’s why I really wasn’t able to use it when my skin was a lot more sensitive and breakout-y over the winter months (it really irritated my skin and made me a lot more red/inflamed), but now that my skin is normal again, I am so happy I am able to use it. ZENMED suggests that you only start off by using this once or twice a week; once you get a feel for how it works with your skin type you can up the usage gradually and then end up using it for five days on, and then five days off.

ZENMED Renewing Microdermabrasion Complex ($39.99 for 4 oz.; zenmed.com) is described as a “granular formulation” based in a “mineral-heavy clay” that is “designed specifically to provide intensive dermabrasion on the surface of the skin,” without leaving any greasy residue. This is one of ZENMED’s top-selling products (no surprise here), as it smooths out dull, flaky skin, making it feel immediately “rejuvenated and smooth.” It doesn’t contain any soaps, so it won’t leave skin feeling dry and dehydrated, and it will make skin glow and more plump.

This product is one of those products where the more you use it, the more results you will see, and it is ideal to use it before using serums or moisturizers, especially ZENMED’s Skin Eraser (below), because it “allows for better penetration of actives.” Now that my skin is cleared up, I’m excited to use this more, especially with the Skin Eraser, and see how well it works for smoothing my skin and evening out its tone.

Photo copyright 2014 Sugarglow Blog: Makeup, skincare, hair products, reviews, subscription boxes, DIY, fashion and more. www.sugarglowbeauty.com.

ZENMED Skin Eraser

Another awesome product is the Skin Eraser, which is perfect for people like me who have a slightly uneven skin tone and some imperfections due to all the breakouts and ickiness I had over the winter. It is suggested to use this product after using the MIcrodermabrasion Complex (above), and, like the Microdermabrasion Complex, I have only used this a couple of times since my skin cleared up. This stuff is super promising (I keep saying this about ZENMED products, but it’s true), and, especially with prolonged use, it should erase away imperfections and just make your skin all-around better looking. I’m excited to start using this more over the next few weeks.

ZENMED Skin Eraser ($29.99 for 2 oz.; zenmed.com) is described as an “Ascorbic-Glycolic-Lactic acid fortified treatment” that “effectively exfoliates the upper layers of the skin” to help minimize imperfections, dullness, hyperpigmentation, discoloration, bumpiness, and fine lines and wrinkles. This product visibly helps perfect skin damage and unveils “brighter, healthier skin,” so your complexion will appear smoother and more even. If used with the Renewing Microdermabrasion Complex (above), the two products will give you an “instant home facial.”

I’m really excited to start using this product more now that my skin is back to normal. Like the Microdermabrasion Complex, this product can be a little harsh-feeling on skin (but not as much as the Microdermabrasion scrub), so use sparingly and work your way up to more consistent uses. ZENMED says that you may feel some tingling after using the Skin Eraser, so if this is bothersome, then the first few applications should be rinsed off until the skin becomes more accustomed to it.

It is highly suggested to use both this product and the MIcrodermabrasion Complex in the nighttime because it will make your skin a little more susceptible to sun irritation. Either way, if you’re using this product, it’s probably best to use an SPF the next day.

ZENMED Facial Cleansing Gel

This last product is one of the most gentle, smoothest feeling cleansers I have ever used. It just feels so amazing on my skin, and it effectively breaks up makeup, dirt, and whatever else that needs to be cleaned off at the end of a long day. This feels like an oil, but it’s not (it’s oil-free), and it doesn’t make your skin feel dried-out or dehydrated at all (even when my skin was extra dry this summer). It is ideal to use this stuff twice a day, especially for sensitive skin.

ZENMED Facial Cleansing Gel ($15 for 5 oz.; zenmed.com) is described as a “gentle, ph-balanced gel cleanser” that is “designed to be gentle to troubled skin.” This cleanser contains a naturally-based formulation of Certified Organic Aloe Vera Gel and Tea Tree that is “designed to remove oil, makeup, and unwanted residue from the surface of the skin while maintaining the skin’s natural protective barrier.” This product is great when used before any of ZENMED’s Acne treatment products, or even used alone. It feels SO smooth and gentle and wonderful on my skin, I love it. It is oil-free, alcohol-free, and “doctor-formulated to be gentle to sensitive skin or skin undergoing aesthetic treatments like peels and Acne medications.”

Overall, I really enjoyed these ZENMED products, I just feel like I still haven’t been able to try them out enough to really come to a definitive opinion on how well they work. Now that my skin has finally cleared up I will be using them a lot more, and I love the idea of doctor-formulated, medicinal products that contain natural ingredients.

So, like I said again and again in this post, these products are extremely promising. There is really something for everyone in ZENMED’s product catalog and I would urge people to check out their website to see everything that the brand has to offer. Check out ZENMED.com for all products listed in this post, or for more information on the company itself.

This is only my second month of receiving Beauty Box Five because I finally decided (two months ago) that the price of $12/month is totally worth it and I love having a new beauty subscription arrive on my doorstep! I have been subscribed to all of the other boxes I receive for at least a year now, so BB5 is still new and fresh and exciting (well, all of them are exciting, really, I just can’t say no to a surprise package of goodies every month).

Beauty Box Five April 2014 Review + Photos: Monthly Beauty Subscription Box. Photo copyright 2014 Sugarglow Blog: Makeup, skincare, hair products, reviews, subscription boxes, DIY, fashion and more. www.sugarglowbeauty.com.

This subscription box features a little bit more affordable (cheaper) makeup and beauty products, and I love the fact that they send out lots of full-sized items. They send out five products each month, ranging from makeup to skin care to hair care, as well as beauty items and accessories (all in a cute little turquoise box).

Each month, items are sent out based on a theme (like most of the other box subscriptions), and each box includes a card detailing the products sent out that month. This month’s theme was “Shades of Beauty,” simple products for a pretty beauty routine.

Jergens Natural Glow – 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer

I have been meaning to try out the new Jergens 3 Days to Glow formula so I was happy to see this sample in this month’s Beauty Box Five. Also, it’s nice that they sent out samples for three whole days (instead of just one single packet) so you can really test out the “Three Days” claim. I haven’t used it yet, but I am planning to use it this week (spring is finally here!).

Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer ($9.99 for 4 oz.; ulta.com) is described as a self-tanning moisturizer that “creates a color that’s gradual, flawless and captivating.” You can “jump-start your color and achieve a skin tone one full shade darker” in just three days. This moisturizer provides fast, natural-looking color and has no sunless tanning odor.

Blum Naturals All-Purpose Cleansing Wipes

It seems like every time I run out of a beauty product that I need and use every day it magically appears in a monthly subscription box, just like these cleansing wipes. I was kind of hoping to use these as full face makeup-cleansing wipes, but these are “mini wipes” and they don’t really work exactly like how I need them to work, so I’m still going to have to pick up another set of full-sized makeup wipes when I go to the store. But, either way, these are good for removing eye makeup and they are super cute (and portable!).

Blum Naturals All-Purpose Cleansing Wipes ($7.50 for set of three containers with 30 wipes in each; beautybox5shop.com) are super affordable — 90 wipes for under $8! There was only one container that came in the April Beauty Box Five box and I received the “Citrus Scent.” These wipes are infused with aloe vera, super convenient (especially for travelling purposes) and they are “just the right size to remove eye makeup or correct minor cosmetic mistakes.” They are hypo-allergenic, paraben-free and cruelty-free.

Bonne Bell Lip Definer (top) and BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Trio

Wow, I haven’t used Bonne Bell anything since being obsessed with Lip Smackers when I was little, so I was pretty surprised to see this lip liner in my April BB5. I can’t seem to find this product anywhere for sale online, but I’m sure that it’s available in any drugstore that sells Bonne Bell cosmetics. This liner is actually not bad, and I never really buy lip liners for myself so I am always happy to receive one in a subscription box. I received this liner in the “Apple Cider” color, which goes perfectly with the Nicka K lipstick (below).

Bonne Bell Lip Definer ($3.95 for 0.04 oz.; local drugstores) is described as a liner that’s “perfect for a precise pout,” keeping lipstick from feathering and it also “makes for a lovely natural look when paired with a clear gloss.”

BH Cosmetics Hollywood Eyeshadow Trio

I actually received this same mini palette in an Ipsy Glam Bag months ago, but I think I gave it away to a friend so I’m going to try to use it this time around. The above photo didn’t come out too great — the purple color is a pretty, bright, yet deep, grape color. This is a small sample of the regular BH Cosmetics Eyeshadow and Blush Palette, which comes with 16 eyeshadows and four face powders. The California Collection comes in three versions: Hollywood, Malibu and San Francisco. I received the “Hollywood” palette (same one as what I received in the Ipsy bag).

BH Cosmetics California Collection Eyeshadow Palette ($18.95 for 16 eyeshadows and four face powders; beautybox5shop.com) is described as a “vibrant palette inspired by striking celebrity looks from the red carpet.” Each set contains “feminine blushes, bright shadows and vampy reds” and the mini “Hollywood” palette that I received contains a deep purple, shimmery light brown and shimmery golden shade.

Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick review and photos. Beauty Box Five April 2014 Review + Photos: Monthly Beauty Subscription Box.

Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick in “Concerto”

This was the product I was most impressed with this month. This lipstick from Nicka K New York goes on very smooth and it is hydrating, which is just what I need for my chapped lips. At just $5 a pop, this lipstick is super affordable and the packaging is so sleek and pretty for such a low price. I was pretty shocked. I’m not saying it’s the best lipstick ever but it’s great, especially for the price, and it looks so nice. I received this product in “Concerto,” which is a light, shimmery, cider-y color. I never wear reds and this really isn’t very red at all, it actually looks very nice when I wear it.

Nicka K New York Hydro Lipstick ($4.99 for 0.12 oz.; beautybox5shop.com) is described as a “lipstick junkie-approved,” hydrating and paraben-free lipstick that “feels light but delivers luscious, full-bodied color that lasts through your first cup of coffee.” To make sure your lipstick doesn’t budge, Beauty Box Five suggests you apply your first layer of color, then use a blending brush to add translucent powder, pressing it in until your lips are mattified, and then apply your second layer of lipstick.

 

Overall I was very happy with my second Beauty Box Five and I think it’s so worth it to receive almost all full-sized products for only $12. I love the Nicka K lipstick and the Bonne Bell liner matches it perfectly (the liner is also really not bad at all), and the mini cleansing wipes are all-natural and super convenient. I’m sure I’ll put the mini eyeshadow palette to use and if I get good results from the Jergens lotion packets I’m definitely going to buy the full-sized tube.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Glow Renewal Day/Night Cream

I did a little bit of a mini drugstore haul yesterday and figured it wouldn’t hurt to try to find a deeply hydrating “drugstore brand” moisturizer to combat my severe dry skin issues this winter. Now, I wouldn’t normally go for an “anti-aging” product, but this cream promised to hydrate, replenish AND bring a healthy glow back to my lackluster skin, and I know L’Oreal makes some great skincare products, so I decided to give it a shot and I am soooo happy I did.

In just one day of use (I used it last night before bed and then again this morning), my skin already looks better. It felt hydrated all day long (with the help of some other products) and really looked  so much more “revitalized” and brighter — it definitely gives off a glowing effect, as promised.

I have been feeling like nothing would bounce my skin back this winter, no matter how many different products I tried and no matter how many bottles of water I drank all day long, so I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that this cream gave me such amazing, noticeable results after just one day!

L'Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Glow Renewal Day & Night Cream Review + Photos. Photo copyright 2014 Sugarglow Blog: Makeup, skincare, hair products, reviews, subscription boxes, DIY, fashion and more. www.sugarglowbeauty.com.

L’Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Glow Renewal Day & Night Cream ($25 for 1.7 oz.; ulta.com) is a creamy moisturizer with a very lightweight texture that goes on super smooth without feeling heavy or greasy. This cream “releases nourishing oils to help provide nourishing moisture for intense hydration,” while a “unique complex of brightening properties restores skin’s healthy glow.” This lotion really is super “luxurious,” it absorbed quickly and it kept my skin super hydrated without that greasy feeling.

My skin felt softer and smoother than it has this whole winter — really. No exaggeration. The product description says that you are supposed to see instant results in more luminous and “deeply nourished skin” and then, over time, the cream will restore a healthy glow and skin will feel firmer.

L'Oreal Age Perfect Hydra Nutrition Glow Renewal Day & Night Cream Review + Photos. Photo copyright 2014 Sugarglow Blog: Makeup, skincare, hair products, reviews, subscription boxes, DIY, fashion and more. www.sugarglowbeauty.com.

I definitely got the instant hydration and luminous effect the first day I used it and, even though I have fairly young and not “mature” skin, this cream worked very well for me. My dry skin pretty much drank it right up, so if you don’t have dry skin or if you prefer an oil-absorbing moisturizer with a more “matte” feeling, then I don’t think this one would be for you.

I love it so much because it did exactly what I needed it to do and it provided a great base for a fresh, almost dewy-like makeup look for the day. I’m also pretty shocked that I didn’t have to go to the Chanel counter in Bloomie’s and spend $70+ on a good, hydrating moisturizer. In just one day I was really able to turn around my dry winter skin (which I have been talking about in almost every single blog post that I’ve written in the last few months). A+++ from me.

L’Oreal Age Pefect Hydra Nutrition Glow Renewal Day/Night Cream costs $25 and is available at most major drugstores and websites that carry L’Oreal cosmetics, including ULTA.com.
