Beauty Heroes April 2019 Review feat. de Mamiel
You’ll receive a booklet that introduces the featured brand (de Mamiel) and the products they chose to include.
Inside there’s more info on the two products.
Further in, they list the ingredients and a little more about the brand, as well as suggested rituals for both evening and morning, and more about Beauty Heroes’ loyalty program.
de Mamiel Brightening Cleanse and Exfoliate, 2.47 oz. full-size – Retail Value $70.00
First and foremost, let’s take a look at the gorgeous packaging for this month’s “hero”. I know I can be a sucker, but I think it’s important that luxury brands pay attention to detail when presenting their product!
The box this “powder-to-paste” cleanser comes in is square with baby blue accents including a ribbon that keeps the lid sealed with a sticker on the back.
There is also a quote from founder Annee de Mamiel.
It also comes with a small booklet that goes in-depth about their whole product line.
The bottle itself matches the box with a black glass bottle with blue and gold text that feels high end.
The directions suggest using daily, or twice a week for more sensitive skin. It can also be used as a mask if left on for 10 minutes after cleansing.
The powder looks like a fine pale cocoa but contains ingredients like montmorillonite white clay, colloidal oats, marshmallow, ginseng, Gotu Kola, and vitamin c powder. I tapped an estimated teaspoon of the powder into my damp palm and began to sprinkle water on top to slowly mix into a paste. Honestly, I don’t love powdered cleansers as I feel like it can get a little messy, especially for daily use. It also takes some patience and practice to get the right consistency. The hue turns to a deeper brown color once activated with water and once it’s a good texture, I began to spread it on my face in circular motions. There is a little bit of grit in here, so while you’re cleansing, it’s also scrubbing ever so slightly to get rid of any dull skin. Once I felt adequately cleansed, I splashed water on my face to wash away and used a soft cloth to help when needed. While this definitely made my skin look fresh and clean, overall it was a little bit more of a process than I want to do every time I need to wash my face.
de Mamiel Skin Recover Blend, 0.2 oz. trial size – Listed Retail Value $35 (Buy a full-size 1 oz. jar for $160.00)
The accompanying product this month is a trial sized jar of the skin recovery blend.
Right off the bat, I’m a little obsessed with the scent of this. This has a slew of soothing, calming, and clarifying ingredients that can be great for acne-prone skin, but once again I am lured in by blue tansy. Has blue tansy always been around? Is it having a moment, like turmeric? I need to know more! It’s apparently a flower native to Morocco from the chamomile family and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which can really help out our skin.
I really love the blue color of this balm (which is the color blue tansy turns when it’s steam distilled). I normally shy away from little jars of dense product due to my long nails, but this one is just outrageously wonderful smelling and I was really interested to see how it goes from a solid to a serum once warmed between my fingers. I scooped a little out and started to rub it between my fingers of both hands before then smoothing it all over my face and neck. How heavenly! It’s certainly a really dewy balm that gives my face a nice sheen that doesn’t soak in very quickly. For me, this is better used in the evening almost as a night treatment but I just love the way it feels on my skin- which is super hydrating while the calm-inducing smell helps me relax.
Verdict: April’s Beauty Heroes introduced me to new ways to use everyday products. A cleanser in powder form and a serum in a solid balm is definitely unique! In the case of the powder, I don’t necessarily feel it’s the right delivery method for me, but the balm is really blowing my mind. While of course, I wish I had a full size of that product, I’m overjoyed to have been introduced to this brand and learn more about blue tansy! This month had a retail value of $105.00 for the monthly cost of $42.95 so the value is certainly there!
