Stuff I Like: Face Slime

March 25th, 2010

{{Mamarazzi Knows Best won!}}

 

Here’s my newest favorite thing:

The above is part of a skincare line developed by a bloggy friend who suffers from super-sensitive skin, rosacea and “general dermatological malaise.” When she contacted me to ask if I’d give some of the products a trial run, I practically begged she send it all immediately because I want to try everything! everything! in the free and third worlds that may help my zitty, oily, dry yet greasy, flaky yet slithery, unctuous skin.

 

After visiting her site, I selected Face Slime #5, which is “excellent for combination and troubled skin” (that’d be me) and contains Moroccan rhassoul clay to absorb oil and dirt. (Me and my oily, dirty face are so sexy.) I also tried Slimes #2 (w/almond) and #4 (w/oatmeal).

 

I used the products religiously and ended up liking Face Slime #5 the best, followed by #4, then #2. I used the slimes as cleansers mostly (they come as powders and you just add water to make a cleanser or a mask), and the #5 especially made me feel like it was an oil absorber and pore decongester all in one. Also, my face stayed non-oily until after lunchtime, which is a major epidermal feat for my skin. An added bonus was that my face felt smooth and clean.

 

I’m totally adding Face Slime #5 to my skincare repertoire, a lofty line-up that includes toner, moisturizer, and prodigious amounts of prayer.

 

In case you wondered, the Face Slime face masks are 100% natural (and edible even!) and made with organic essentail oils.

 

Finally, if you would like to own one of these Face Slime masks for yourself, my friend was nice enough to offer a giveaway. To enter, please visit her site, check out the Slimes (and while you’re at it, peruse the whole line of products that are awesome) and then leave a comment here telling me which Slime you would like to slick on your face. I’ll pick a random winner on Monday, March 29 at noon!

 

May the zitless skin Force be with you.

 

UPDATE: GIVEAWAY NOW CLOSED! Winner selected by end of day.

I’m with you, the #5 seems most like what my confused skin might need. I’m really interested in her tea tree deodorant, too. Have you tried that?

Kizzie:

Haven’t tried. But after liking the Slimes so much…I would try anything from the site.

I like the idea of using a natural deodorant too. Plus, my Secret smells like a baby’s butt. And while there is nothing wrong with that, I’d just rather not have the butt smell on my pits.

I think Slime #4 would work for me, since my skin is mature (although I’m not sure if it’s disturbed. I mean I’m disturbed, but my skin?). And because I’m one of those people everyone hates with non-oily, rare ever has a blemish skin, that needs just a bit of help.

I’ve got super oily skin so I would LOVE to try Face Slime #5.

#5 sounds good to me, too!

I want them ALL! But if I had to choose I would go with the #1 Cocoa Slime.

The peppermint lavender skin chills sludge sounds awesome! I’d love to give it a try!

I think the oatmeal slime sounds the best for my skin. I like that it’s all natural.

Must. Check. These. Out.
We share the same skin, so I’d copy your regimen.

Wow, these all sound amazing. But I’d love to try Slime #4 for my disturbed and mature skin!

On March 28th, 2010, Kari C said:

Sigh….how can you pick just one?? I love the product names! I think Face Slime #5 would match my troubled “mature” skin also, but #3 and #4 sound interesting too, as does the body powder. Thank you for the site info!

I will go with #5 because you said so and because my pores need to be put in their place already.

I think your troubled skin and my troubled skin spent some time together in juvie. It’s the only explanation I can think of why mine sounds like yours.

So #5 sounds perfect for me.

I would love to try anything that makes my years of sunbathing, excema and that time of the month acne disappear ;-)

I really want to try the healing Oatmeal Mask! Thank you!

I’d like to try the Oatmeal mask! I suffered the ravages of rosceasia in the past (antibiotics were the only solution then), and have been able to keep it at bay with reagular detox treatments I don’t like -one is going caffeine-free which I just can’t do!

R.O.S.A.C.E.A. Yup. Had to look it up!
