Lalu Essentials weren’t in my radar until I saw them on Instagram. Aside from the cute name and the cute packaging, seeing a product like “Face Detox” immediately caught my attention.
Hailing from Long Beach, California, Lalu Essentials offers cruelty-free products that aim to provide simple and healthy skincare
An antioxidants serum, the Face Detox ($49.99) contains 18 antioxidants to defend the skin from free radicals. It also aims to soften, smooth, and hydrate the skin, reduces redness, and increases hydration and radiance. It also does not contain fragrance, essential oils, colorants, or parabens. The serum smells like candy and the orange color is so fun to look at. It has a watery texture but applies like milk on the skin. Amazingly enough, this doesn’t feel slick or oily despite some oils being high up on the ingredient list. It leaves the skin with a velvet texture making it great in the mornings before applying SPF and makeup. It doesn’t aggravate the oiliness of the skin and instead leaves it smooth and soft.
The Ju-C&E Complex ($55.99) uses three stabilized forms of Vitamin C and three forms of Vitamin E to help repair sun damage within weeks, reduce and prevent blackheads and clogged pores, and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. This has a has a subtle citrus scent and has the texture and consistency of a light moisturizer and leaves a thin creamy feeling on the skin. It doesn’t sink in as quickly as the Face Detox. Leaves a thin, silky film on the skin so I like using this at night, followed by a sleeping mask. I will wake up with soft and glowing skin afterwards.
Using these two as part of my morning and evening skincare routines, I have noticed how they both helped in maintaining a blemish-free complexion. A favorite, though, is Face Detox. I just love how this applies on my skin. It has helped soften and brighten my skin. Nevertheless, my skin just loves the formulation used in both these water-based products, it just drunk everything in and left me with clear and soft skin.
