Mádara Cosmetics Northern Herbarium Review

 
One of my favorite things I got in my Naturalbox (review) was this kit from Mádara. I saved this set to use in the summer where we usually spend it at our summer house. Rose seems to be the common thread in these three, which I thought was complimenting from what we've learned from my latest post on Ayurveda and summer skin (☛ check it out).
Even though I will always be faithful to my oils, I do like to go back and test the conventional skincare to see if I’m missing something.

Madara Eco Face Deep Purifying Foam

★☆☆☆☆

I’ve practically moved away from foam cleansers but thought to give this one a try when it’s basically just rose water with a foam pump to it (so not technically a foam cleanser).
If you like when it foams a lot, look the other way, this one dies pretty quickly. The honest truth, there wasn’t much I liked about this cleanser. It did nothing to remove my make up, even when used together with a Konjac Sponge. And well, if a cleanser can’t do just what it’s supposed to do, then it’s no point to use. 
The foam is very gentle and feels nice to work with, so it’s too bad it just doesn’t clean. I ended up using it only on days when I had no make up on, just to “freshen up”. But it would work much better as a mist.

INGREDIENTS: Aqua, Sodium Cocamphoacetate, Rosa Damascena, Alcohol, Glycerin, Lactic AcidSucrose Cocoate, Achillea Millefolium, Calendula Officinalis, Chamomilla Recutita, Aroma.
 

Madara Eco Face Deep Moisture Fluid 

★★★☆☆

Okay, so I didn’t hate this one, but I didn’t love it either. I’ve also tried the Deep Moisture Cream that’s for dry skin during the winter, and that one I kind of liked a bit more, nonetheless the fluid-kind suits better in the summer. It keeps moisture well and your face feels smooth and soft. This is probably just personal preference, but I did reach for my oils to use instead, mostly because I feel allergic to the many ingredients I can’t pronounce. With that said, if I were stuck on an island without my oils and only this, it would be a good substitute. But I just feel cleaner with only oils on my face.

Madara Eco Face Regenerating Night Cream 

★★★★☆

This one isn’t cleaner either but the feeling of it was more pleasant. Mostly because my outbreaks happens during the day, which makes me less worried of what I put on in the evening. Usually on those days when I would use the night cream I would wake up with a much calmer and hydrated face - looking more “plump” which we all want to look like when we wake up.
So yes, I spent using this one more than the other two, because I felt like it really works!
I also tried blending it with my rose hip oil, which usually leaves some flakiness, but this combo just left me looking young.
Don’t ask me if I’ll re-buy it, because the only thing I usually restock is pure oils, but I wouldn't mind getting another sample of it.

Uh,.. alkohol på andra plats på nattkrämen lät inte alls bra. Uttorkande minst sagt.

Svar: Jag vet! :) Tänkte på det, och var superskeptisk till en början, men efter att ha använt den i en månad så är det en av de mest återfuktande krämer jag använt! Så det måste vara någon annan slags "alkohol" de använder?
