Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it is important to take good care of it. Every 27/28 days it renews itself by sloughing off old dead skin cells and replacing them with fresh new ones. A proper skin care routine is vital to this process.
I recently got to try out the Moody Sisters Complete Skin Care Set. Even though I have combination skin, I often find myself afraid to try out skin care sets for this skin type. In the past, many brands have left my face dried out and peeling. But I am happy to report, not only did the Moody Sisters skin care line leave my face properly moisturized, but also the patchy red spots I typically deal with were minimized as well.
Moody Sisters skin care line suggests a 4 step process and offers a sampler pack to test it out before buying the full size. They gifted me with the oily combination sampler pack to try in exchange for my honest review. Need help picking which skin care line is right for you? Check out the guide, HERE.
STEP ONE: Cleanse
Moody Sisters Clarifying Foaming Wash is a foam cleanser that smells lightly herbal from pure essential oils. It has a base of organic liquid goats milk soap with other natural ingredients to reduce inflammation and redness. From my article HERE, you might remember that I am a fan of foam cleansers and this one is a great option with much cleaner ingredients. Keep in mind when you are trying out a new facial cleanser to look for a cleanser that will clean your skin without stripping away too much oil. Your skin should not feel dry, greasy, or tight after washing. I found this cleanser to leave my skin feeling refreshed and clean.
STEP TWO: Exfoliate
Moody Sisters Pore Refining Facial Scrub (Cucumber Mint) is a natural face exfoliant that smells mildly sweet. Exfoliants are a vital part of the skin care routine to help remove dead skin so that new skin can be revealed. They also have the added benefit of preventing blackheads and tightening pores. Although this facial scrub is what I would consider a rougher scrub, the oils in it protect your skin from harsh abrasion. Rosemary and peppermint essential oils are great for the skin and help to tone, tighten and refine your pores. Cucumber hydrosol is paired with witch hazel powder for soothing and toning effects. This scrub is meant to clean and exfoliate in one step. Although the pore refining facial scrub is safe enough to be used daily, I used it 2 to 3 times a week. I noticed a decrease in my flaky skin and my skin appeared brighter thanks to this pore refining facial scrub.
Although not part of the complete skin care set, I purchased a sample size of the Moody Sisters Dead Sea Mud Mask to try. It is a thick clay mask that smells like earthy chocolate pudding. I used it twice a week on days when I didn’t use the pore refining facial scrub. The all natural bentonite clay helps to pull pollutants from the skin and gently cleanse. The oils and vitamins in the mask help to smooth and hydrate. I felt this Dead Sea Mud Mask added extra hydration to my skin.
STEP THREE: Tone
Moody Sisters Clarifying Toning Mist is a spray that smells mostly of apple cider vinegar. Read more about why apple cider vinegar is great for the skin HERE. This mist which is alcohol free also contains green tea and organic witch hazel. These ingredients help to tone your skin without over drying. Directions with this toner suggest spraying it directly on the skin but I chose to spray it on an organic cotton ball and wipe my skin. It is great for removing makeup and calming the skin. When evaluating a toner, make sure it is reducing redness, calming the skin and leaving it softer and smoother.
STEP 4: Hydrate
Moody Sisters Lightweight Moisturizer is an aloe based moisturizer that smells lightly citrusy. The aloe vera juice combined with witch hazel and green tea leave the skin moist, but not greasy. I have tried natural moisturizers that didn’t hydrate my skin enough. This one works well and the scent from essential oils is a personal favorite of mine. Look for moisturizers that absorb quickly and feel weightless. Your skin should not appear too dry or too oily by midday as that is a sign you might need to switch formulas.
MY OVERALL THOUGHTS ON MOODY SISTERS SKIN CARE
I learned a lot about proper skin care and what it means by using the Moody Sisters complete skin care line. I love how all the products work together to give me a clean and properly moisturized face. It is great to learn that redness and oiliness can often be controlled with the right products.
Prior to this, toning and exfoliating weren’t a daily part of my regimen but they will be now. If I had to pick a favorite from this line, I would choose the lightweight moisturizer. As I mentioned above, I love the smell of it and how quickly it absorbs into the skin. I have no problem wearing it as part of my nighttime routine because of how lightweight it is.
