I love watermelons. I’ve been eating them for as long as I can remember so my excitement from receiving the What A Melon collection of Bliss. These vegan and cruelty-free products use watermelon extract, cucumber fruit extract, hyaluronic acid to hydrate, soothe, calm, and moisturize the skin. They all smell like summer and sweetened watermelon!
Using willow bark extract, witch hazel, magnesium aspartate, and copper and zinc gluconates, the Toner ($17) promise to remove excess oil, protect the skin from free radicals, and calm, soothe, balance, and tone the complexion. This gently exfoliates the skin and feels hydrating. It’s very watery and sinks in quickly into the skin. It does balance the oiliness of my skin and makes it less oily when I use it in the mornings.
Now, I have a slight bias when it comes to jelly-textured moisturizers so I wasted no time in trying out the Hydrator ($20). It contains brazilian seawater, sea salt, and willow bark extract to hydrate, balance, and remove excess oil in the skin.
The moisturizer looks so bouncy in the tub and applies so watery to the skin, making it feel refreshing. I experience a bit of tingling the first few seconds of application but it dries beautifully on my oily skin. It’s not matte but it doesn’t sit on top of my skin either and doesn’t aggravate the oiliness of my skin the morning after use.
An overnight treatment, the Mask ($15) promises to replenish, balance, protect, and moisturize the skin using magnesium aspartate, and copper and zinc gluconates, rice bran extract, and avena sativa oat kernel extract.
Like the hydrator, this #overnightmask feels very watery to the skin. As instructed, I massaged it on my face for a minute. While doing so, I was a bit concerned that it will sit on top of my face. However, as promised, it sunk in pretty quickly and left the skin feeling plump but matte. It stung a bit, like the Hydrator but it subsides after a few minutes. By the morning, my skin looks radiant and dewy so I like using this in the middle of the week when my skin gets dull.
These products do not mattify but they do hydrate and balance the skin. I’ve been using them together for a month now and they have plumped and soften my skin without making look greasy and dull.
