Hey guys! I have a beauty product review for you all today that also happens to be gluten free. A friend of a friend sent me some of BeautiControl’s skin care products to review, and as you all know I don’t do a lot of beauty product reviews, but I know that a lot of my readers have cut gluten out of their lives, and this might be an alternative to their standard beauty regimen.
The friend of a friend is Monica, and not only is she a senior rep for BeautifControl, but she works full time as an Acupuncture Physician in Florida. She seems like she is really confident about this product line, and I can see why.
The first thing I did when I received my samples was use the Skin Sensors and answer questions about my skin online. The scientist in me was very excited. All you have to do is hold these two pads to your forehead and cheek for 5 seconds each, then compare it to what is shown online.
Do you see the black dots on the gray box? My face did that…
It was very easy and after answering more questions about my skin, my customized regimen popped up:
It may seem like a lot to put on your face, but I already have a pretty extensive facial regime so I am used to it! I have been using all of these products for about 2 weeks, and my skin looks great. I’m normally really apprehensive about trying new skin care products because my skin is really testy, but it did not break out when I used BeautiControl. I was very happy with that.
Purifying Cleansing Lotion $26
According to the catalog, this product is supposed to “purify skin, remove dirt and debris, and unclog pores.” I felt that it did a thorough job of cleansing my face.
Exfoliating Polish $20
I LOVED this stuff. If I had to pick one item to get out of this bunch, it would be this exfoliating polish. My skin was so smooth from the jojoba beads. I couldn’t stop touching my face!! I pretty much made everyone feel how soft my face was after I used it.
Regenerating Tonic with PHAs $26
PHAs are polyhydroxy acids that exfoliate your face even more. This happens to also be an anti aging treatment that unfortunately I have to start thinking about since I just turned 30.
Defend and Restore Moisture Creme SPF 20 $34
Made of shea butter and jojoba esters, this hydrated my skin pretty well. I also felt protected since it also had an SPF of 20.
Defend and Restore Night Creme $38
The night creme was great. It didn’t smell bad so my husband wasn’t complaining, and I woke up in the morning with moisturized skin.
Restructuring Eye Creme $35
The eye creme worked fine for me, but nothing really out of the ordinary. I have several eye cremes that I rotate, and I could really tell no difference between this one, and the 3 other ones that I use.
Are these prices worth it? If you are looking for a gluten free skin regimen, yes! If you want to try out just one item, I would suggest the exfoliating polish. My skin seriously felt like a baby’s butt. It was pretty awesome.
I also like that they will give you your money back if you don’t see visible changes within 30 days. Believe me, as I’ve gotten older, I like using products that make that guarantee. I don’t like wasting my money, and I WILL bring items back if they don’work.
Another thing, orders can be placed directly on the website and get shipped directly to the consumer. I like that!
The only thing I don’t like about these products is that the ingredient lists seem to be pretty long, and I don’t believe they are organic ingredients. However, these products are far better quality than the majority of facial products out there, and if you have a gluten intolerance/allergy, BeautiControl is definitely a great option. Monica also shared with me that BeautiControl lists EVERY SINGLE ingredient in their products. By law, cosmetic companies only have to list 40% of their ingredients. How scary is that?
If you have any questions regarding BeautiControl or want any free samples, feel free to contact Monica at firstname.lastname@example.org or (407) 625-2764. She can usually get the samples shipped within 3 days if she has them in stock.
**As always, even though I received samples of this product for free, all the opinions expressed are my own!!!!
