Hi bunnies! It has been awhile since I’ve had the possibility to put in writing a put up for you guys! First it was the vacations (you know the way that goes – visiting household out of city and consuming too many cookies…), after which I modified to a brand new internet host which took WAY too lengthy, however now I’m again. Did ya miss me?
Today I need to speak about a cruelty free model referred to as Lexli. I’ve written about this model earlier than nevertheless it’s been a sizzling minute, so let me refresh your reminiscence. Lexli is a Leaping Bunny licensed cruelty free skincare model that makes use of pharmaceutical grade aloe vera as its star ingredient.
Aloe is one in all my favourite skincare components as a result of it has pure therapeutic properties and it’s nice for just about any pores and skin kind – dry, mixture, oily, acne-prone, mature – anybody can profit from this “pharmacy in a plant.” I’ve mixture, cystic, hormonal grownup zits susceptible pores and skin, and I’ve by no means had a breakout triggered by aloe. In reality, it’s been nice for therapeutic zits and moisturizing with out clogging my already overloaded pores. In addition to therapeutic, aloe really has antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties!
You’ll see that pharmaceutical grade aloe is on the high of the ingredient lists for Lexli merchandise. They use aloe as a base as an alternative of water, which makes for a greater product. Lexli makes use of solely natural aloe that has been licensed by the International Aloe Science Council (IASC) to make certain the aloe they supply has been correctly harvested for optimum efficacy.
Lexli despatched me their 30 day starter equipment to check out. It comes with Cleansing Lotion, Tone and Balance, AloeGlyC, Day Moisturizer with SPF 15, and Night Moisturizer. All of the merchandise are cruelty free (no animal testing, no components examined on animals by suppliers, and never bought in international locations that require animal testing). All of the merchandise are paraben free and use natural aloe vera as the principle ingredient. Some of the merchandise are vegan, and a few comprise collagen or silk (see notes on every under).
The Cleansing Lotion is, after all, cruelty-free, but in addition paraben-free, vegan and pH balanced. Aloe vera is the primary ingredient (earlier than water), and the ingredient deck is brief. It’s good for delicate pores and skin or these with rosacea. This components is supposed for regular, combo or dry pores and skin varieties. If you could have zits or very oily pores and skin, chances are you’ll need to attempt the Acne Cleanser (which I reviewed right here).
Lexli’s Tone and Balance can be utilized after cleaning to take away any remaining bits of make-up and oil or you should utilize it as a hydrating, setting, pH balancing and therapeutic refresher throughout the day (even in the event you’re carrying make-up). You can use this as an aftershave or when your pores and skin is feeling delicate from a sunburn or laser therapy. It’s an important choice for these with delicate pores and skin, psoriasis, eczema or rosacea. The toner has silk and collagen components, so it’s not appropriate for vegans.
Lexli Day Moisturizer with SPF 15 is ideal for regular to dry pores and skin varieties. As with the entire Lexli merchandise, aloe is the primary ingredient, and it’s made with soluble collagen (not appropriate for vegans), jojoba seed oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin D3, and Vitamin E. The cream may be very hydrating however not heavy or greasy. It offers some solar safety, however in the event you’re going out into the world, I like to recommend including their Sunscreen Spray.
Lexli’s AloeGlyC is a potent exfoliator with glycolic acid, Vitamin C, salicylic acid, Vitamin A, Vitamin E and inexperienced tea extract. It’s very lively, and sadly not one I can use as a result of I’m very delicate to Vitamin C. I attempted it as a masks (left it on for a few minute after which washed it off), and I did see some pores and skin smoothing advantages. I might suggest beginning by both mixing this together with your moisturizer or utilizing it as a masks. As your pores and skin adapts, you should utilize it full-strength as a leave-on exfoliant. You guys already know glycolic acid is one in all my favourite anti-aging, pores and skin brightening components, and Vitamin C can be in the identical class for me if my pores and skin tolerated it higher. This product accommodates lactose, so it’s appropriate for vegetarians however not appropriate for vegans. Make positive to make use of sunscreen throughout the day once you use a robust exfoliant like this one.
And final however not least is the Night Moisturizer. In addition to the natural aloe, it’s made with sodium PCA, safflower oil (a non pore clogging oil), jojoba seed oil and soluble collagen (so not acceptable for vegans). This is a really hydrating cream that’s good for regular, dry, mature, or delicate pores and skin varieties. It’s additionally nice for dry, winter pores and skin (which I do know a whole lot of you could have been coping with currently).
If you’re undecided which Lexli merchandise are best for you, or undecided of your pores and skin kind, take their on-line quiz. And in the event you attempt the merchandise, please let me know what you assume!
