Product Review: SkinBetter Refresh Collection

img_7971

A few months ago SkinBetter Science unveiled their Refresh Collection, so naturally I had to give these new products a try! If the name sounds familiar it is because they are the makers of two of my most favorite products: AlphaRet and Alto Defense. The line launched almost two years ago with only a few core products which have been wildly successful, but they were still missing the essential steps: cleanser and moisturizer.

I am going to break down these three products for you below. What they do, my experience using them, and whether I would recommend them. Please keep in mind this is my personal experience and opinion. What works for one may not for the other, and vice versa. Hope this is helpful šŸ™‚

Oxygen Infusion Wash:

What’s in it:

  • Salycilic acid, Glycolic, Lactic, Citric Acids
  • Oxygen infusing complex
  • Hydrolyzed jojoba esters
  • Immediate brightening effect, light exfoliation

My experience:

  • Refreshing
  • Does not foam
  • Cannot be used on the eyes to remove eye makeup
  • I used it for my AM wash and after a few days my skin got dry
  • Would be a good cleanser for very oily or congested skin

Verdict:

Detoxifying Scrub Mask

What’s in it:

  • Clay based
  • Can be used as a scrub or a leave on mask
  • Good for oily/congested skin
  • Absorbs excess sebum

My experience:

  • I used it as a scrub in the shower a few times. Did not leave my skin refreshed or glowing
  • Used it as a mask a couple of times. Goes on smooth and dries to a light powder white color. Does not feel tight.
  • I am oily/acne prone and it did not seem to clean my skin out very well.

Verdict:

What’s in it?

  • Keeps skin barrier healthy
  • Niacinimide and skin identical ceramide blend

My experience:

  • I personally don’t use a moisturizer because i’m acne/oily and my skin is healthy and balanced enough without…BUT

  • Lightweight
  • No smell
  • Hydrating
  • No shine

Verdict:
