Skincare Review: Dr. Botanicals Pomegranate Superfood Brightening Eye Serum and Regenerating Sleeping Mask

Bringing together superfoods and science, Dr. Botanicals created natural, cruelty-free, and vegan-friendly skincare treatments that are free from synthetic perfumes, colorants, and parabens.

The products they sent me uses Pomegranate as the main ingredient. The fruit is high in antioxidants and the products aim to nourish the skin.

The Pomegranate Superfood Brightening Eye Serum (£19.00) aims to smooth, brighten, and nourish the eye area. It also contains raspberry seed oil, sweet almond oil, olive fruit oil, meadowfoam seed oil, calendula flower extract, and sunflower seed oil. As you can see in the ingredient list, this serum has a runny oil texture with a dropper to dispense the product. It’s packaged like a face oil and it nourishes the eye area. This is a savior for when my under eyes are feeling really dry as it moisturizes them immediately. Personally, I prefer roll-on applicators for eye serums that are on the runny side. Unfortunately, I have not noticed it’s brightening effects on the dark circles under my eyes so I really count on this to provide moisture and nourishment.

The Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask (£12.00) promises an energized and refreshed complexion overnight with sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, shea butter among its ingredients. The sleeping mask has a thick texture that feels sealing to the skin. For my #oilyskin, this doesn’t sink in quickly and leaves a tacky feeling. However, I use this in the middle of the week as it feels nourishing to the skin and I wake up with a revitalized complexion after use. It also helps in giving me a more radiant complexion afterward on days when my skin would easily look dull.

I would recommend these products for those who are looking for vegan, cruelty-free, and natural skin treatments that nourishes and moisturizes the skin.

Drunk Elephant Agent Ellie Day Kit

To be honest, I never even bothered to even try the minis from Drunk Elephant. I just dove right in and bought their full-sized products. I first bought the C-Firma Day Serum, then the TLC Framboos Glycolic Night Serum and the TLC Sukari Baby Facial. I have purchased and repurchased countless bottle and never looked back.

For those of you who haven’t been #drunkinlove or just want travel-sized versions for when you’re leaving home, DE recently released some holiday kits for you to devour.

I have the Agent Ellie Day Kit, which is mean to be used as your morning routine.

A kit that contains everything you need for a daytime skincare routine. The set contains:

  • 30 mL C-Firma Day Serum
  • 5 mL Shaba Complex Eye Serum
  • 15 mL Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30
  • 7mL B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum
  • 15 mL Protini Polypeptide Cream

I am happy to have my C-Firma backup and excited to try the others in the kit, especially the B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum and Protini Polypeptide Cream. I would definitely recommend these products, especially the ones I have used to everyone as these products do not contain essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical screens, fragrance/dyes, and SLS so.
