A Review of Aquafina's Skin Care and Bath & Body Line

Now that I am a Mom, pampering myself is something I rarely get to do.  Anyone who has or remembers what a 2 year old is like in a typical day will understand.  I was delighted to find out that I would be to try some new products from the Aquafina Skin Care and Bath & Body Line.  Pampering was just what I needed!

I admit that I have a collection of different lip balms.  I think it is mostly because I have not found that I really liked or worked well for me.  I believe my problem has been solved with Aquafina's Lip Oil.

The first product I tested was Aquafina's Hydrating Lip Oil.  I have heard of lip balm, but lip oil?  I put a little on my lips, not knowing what to expect, and I was pleased with the wonderful aroma on mint.  This gel glided on easily and did not leave my lips greasy, but perfectly hydrated and moisturized!  I did not need to use alot either.  Once the oil set on my lips for a few seconds, I got a tingly feeling on my lips from the menthol in the product.  It felt nice on my lips and only lasted for a short time.

The consistency of the lip oil is like a gel, which is nice because you do not have to reapply it very often.  I find that with lip balm I am always applying and reapplying it.  I was able to eat and drink throughout the day and only had to apply the lip oil a couple of times. 

I also liked that Aquafina's Lip Oil contains natural botanicals including, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E and Almond Oil.  Not only is this a great moisturizer, but it added a bit of shine to my lips.

The next two products I tried out were Aquafina's Purifying Daily Cleanser and Daily Balance & Clarity Toner. 

The cleanser was a breeze to use.  I pumped the applicator 2 or 3 times to get an adequate amount of the cleanser into the palm of my hand and applied it to my face in a circular motion.  It lathered very nicely and it was light and refreshing on my face.  I rinsed with water and I was happy to see that the cleanser rinsed easily and thoroughly.  My skin felt smooth, clean, and hydrated. 

After I washed my face, I applied the toner with a cotton swab.  In case you are not familiar with what toner does, it helps to " tone and clarify the skin, minimize the appearance of pores, helps remove excess oils, makeup and daily buildup".

Right off, when I opened the bottle, this toner had a refreshing scent.  It is also enriched with botanical extracts.  My face instantly felt cool and soothed.  I have been using  this toner and cleanser every night since I received it and have found that it is very gentle and non-drying.

I would highly recommend Aquafina's new line of Skin Care and Bath & Body line to anyone looking for something new and works without the drying effects of alot of products on the market. 

The lip oil retails for about $1.99 and the cleanser and toner retail for about $5.00 each.  Check out more about these products online at Aquafina's Skin Care.
