SUZANNE Selects August 2018 Review
This package is the Firming Peptides Box. This card was included with details on the products she selected for this package. The reverse side lists the ingredients for each product, which I really appreciate having in an easy-to-read format. That way, if my skin does decide to revolt, I might be able to narrow down which ingredients or products are causing problems. It’s super handy!
It’s official, this is my new favorite facial cleanser! When I see the word “tightening” on skin care products, I often think of drying, painful products, but none of the firming products in this month’s box had that effect at all. This left my face clean and soft and feeling moisturized. It’s non-irritating, too. My favorite thing about the cleanser is the way it smells! It smells like an orange creamsicle!
This all-natural organic formula eye serum contains collagen and elastin and is designed to tighten and firm the delicate skin around the eyes. It contains plankton which I thought that was cool. I didn’t notice a big difference in the tightness of the skin around my eyes, though, to be honest. It also had a strange smell, a little like boullion, maybe? The pump also broke after my seven day trial. I hope other subscribers had better results with this product.
I really liked this moisturizer. It is pretty much fragrance free, and it feels really cool and decadent on the skin. It absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling soft and quenched! It also contains collagen and elastin, and it works from both the inside (improving skin firmness) and the outside (appearing smoother). I noticed a subtle difference, which is honestly pretty impressive for a seven day trial!
RestoreLife Omega 3 – Retail Value $29.99
I don’t eat fish, and this supplement is made of high quality stabilized fish oil, so I passed this along to my husband, who does take fish oil supplements regularly. It’s difficult to gauge whether a supplement is effective, or more effective than the generic versions he has been taking, but he did say that the pills are easy to swallow and do not have any weird aftertaste. Aftertaste is a big issue with fish oil supplements, I am told! So I think if you use fish oil or are open to using it, this would be a good one to try.
The Verdict: This was my second package from SUZANNE Selects and I am still impressed! Again, none of the products caused my skin to break out, which is impressive in and of itself. I love the cleanser, it smells amazing! I thought the creme was effective and felt great on my skin. Plus, the retail value of all the products is $154.96 (sale value $124.96), which surpasses the promised value of $125, so that’s fantastic!
