Yuli Skincare – Modern Alchemist Face Serum

Yuli Skincare Modern Alchemist Face Serum

These days, green beauty lovers are spoiled for choice when it comes to picking a face oil. The market place is littered with brands offering so many different types of oils, and chances are that it’s not too difficult to find one that suits your skin type and your wallet. And of course, new brands pop up every single day, with pretty much the same offerings (an oil, a balm, a grain cleanser, a floral toner…). So, herein lies the conundrum for someone new to the green beauty scene – how do you pick one that’s guaranteed to deliver results?

Yuli is one brand I’ve grown to trust over the last couple of years. It’s always exciting to share my Yuli experience, not only due to their unique blends, but also because the brand has somewhat of a cult following. Where sending free products in return for (unspoken) positive reviews is commonplace, this is one brand that actively shuns the practice, and in fact, relies on word of mouth marketing, and most importantly, on the stellar performance of its products. And this is precisely one of the reasons when you come across a review for Yuli’s product, you can trust it’s not paid for (directly or indirectly). After using Yuli’s Modern Alchemist religiously for 6+ months and finishing off about 60% of the bottle, I think I have finally gathered my thoughts.

Yüli Skincare – Cell Perfecto PM

As promised in the Liquid Courage review, I am back with an update on another extremely popular Face Serum, made by Yüli Skincare – Cell Perfecto PM. Now that I’m having trouble reaching the last few drops through the dropper, I thought maybe it’s time to do a review where I’ll try to justify my stance on this extremely advanced serum, aimed mostly at those who deal with hyper pigmentation and acne scars.

Yuli’s Pure Mask v. May Lindstrom’s The Problem Solver

Yuli versus May Lindstrom masks

Let me start off by saying that even though I’ve used both Yuli Skincare’s Pure Mask and May Lindstrom’s The Problem Solver, comparing the two masks is an extremely formidable task. Before the purchase of these masks, I hardly ever used to apply DIY clay masks on my skin. In fact, my mindset was “Why should I have to mix my mask? It should be ready made. Doh!”. It is due to the results and beauty of these masks that I started believing in the power of purchasing masks in concentrated, powder form and then adding the liquid of choice during preparation stage, depending upon the skin condition. A year after using these masks, I no longer wish to purchase ready made masks – although these are fast and efficient, we do pay for the convenience, and a lot of times, these masks need to be used up faster because of the liquid/water content. There are numerous blog posts on both masks; so I thought I would do something different and compare the two instead, especially for those who are new to green beauty and are still in the process of making up their minds – So, which mask wins?

HG: Tata Harper – Resurfacing Mask

FullSizeRender-3

This mask is the only product from Tata Harper’s much talked about 100% natural, Vermont based range that I own in full size. I have tried samples sizes of Tata’s cleansers, serums, and moisturizers, but find it difficult to use them for more than a couple of days, because they’re too rich for my skin type. This mask though, is something else. After reading Spirit Demerson’s glowing review of this product, and seeing an Instagram pic on her top shelf of masks, I had to get one even before trying it (Note to myself: Sample products before you buy, especially the expensive ones). For a while, it just sat in my beauty closet, untouched, ignored between many other formidable competitors, in the form of Yuli’s Pure Mask and May Lindstrom’s The Problem Solver. When I finally got around to using it, I wasn’t impressed.
