I had some Birchbox points burning a hole in my pocket, and I’d been eyeing this set for months, so I finally did the deed and started testing.
First off, if you don’t enjoy the cooling, tingling sensation of products like Burt’s Bee’s original lip balm,
or Nugg’s Revitalizing Face Masks,
you will probably want to pass on the Skyn brand entirely. So far, all of the Skyn products I’ve sampled have produced that menthol iciness. I love the sensation and can’t get enough of it.
In the dead of winter, I thoroughly enjoy the vibes; in the sticky, melty summer I’d imagine it will be even more soothing.
The eye patches and the eye pen are probably my favorite, followed closely by the face lotion. As far as anti-aging goes, who knows. I haven’t used these products long enough to have a qualified opinion.
But the moisturizing, refreshing qualities are enough that I give these a 5 star rating and will keep them permanently in my repertoire.
Get Skyn at Birchbox or Amazon.
