For nearly two weeks, I’ve really been enjoying the skincare products I’ve been testing out—they’re from Michael Todd True Organics, and I had to tell you about my favorites. The line as a whole is packed with organically grown plants and fruits, like apricot, avocado, carrot, coconut, cranberry, lemon, orange, and pumpkin, and instead of mineral oils—you’ll find plant oils and butters. This makes for a pretty luxe line-up of products to say the least, that smell and feel amazing! Let’s take a closer look at four of my personal favorites, or my “hero” products…
There are several cleansers in the line (don’t miss the Charcoal Detox Cleanser, either), but this one really stuck out to me. In the mornings, I like my skin to start out by feeling fresh and moist, and this creamy cleanser really delivered by enveloping my skin with hydration, pre-BB cream! I’m a huge fan of alpha-hydroxy acids, and this leaves my skin feeling super smooth and looking radiant. This is perfect for more mature or dry skin types. It smells incredible too, you can definitely sense the organic lemon and orange extracts!
You may have seen me tweeting about this toner, and it is everything to me right now, I’ll be sad when the bottle is gone! I’ve never really been too consistent with applying toners (unless they’re in a light spritzing bottle), but this one is really something special to me. This is one of the few I’ve used that doesn’t make my skin feel dry or tight, and I really feel like it gets the rest of the day off my face without stripping my skin. It’s super refreshing, smells like fresh lemons, and is loaded with gentle astringents and fruit acids that feel FANTASTIC. This is a product I would buy on its own to complement any other skincare regimen I may be using.
I chose the Lipsome Antioxidant Moisturizer to try out of their extensive moisturizer line-up because my skin has been feeling a little dry lately. It blankets my skin in hydration, and protects it with vitamins and antioxidants galore! I don’t recommend this for oily skin, but for those with stressed, mature, and extremely dehydrated skin, try this at night for a punch of soothing moisture.
I’ve been a long-time fan of the power of the nutrients inside of a pumpkin, and WOW—this mask proves exactly just how powerful they are! A blend of glycolic acid and all of the pumpkin enzymes really goes to work to hydrate and exfoliate my skin at the same time—it also brightens, unclogs gunked up pores, and firms. If you’re a fan of pumpkin pie, you’re going to love this pumpkin treat. If not, you may wish to steer clear, as it smells pretty pumpkin-y!
