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 🙂

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
  • Skin lipid emollient complex
  • Red Algae Extract- binds moisture faster and longer than Hylauronic Acid
  • Lightweight

My experience:

  • I personally don’t use a moisturizer because i’m acne/oily and my skin is healthy and balanced enough without…BUT
  • I use it in backbar during my treatments and it’s very nice
  • Lightweight
  • No smell
  • Hydrating
  • No shine

Verdict:
