Skincare Review: Dr. Roebuck’s Icebergs Hydrating Mask and No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer

Inspired by their parents’ original physician formula, Kim and Zoe created a range of clean skincare products and launched their own brands, Dr. Roebuck’s. The products are cruelty-free and are formulated with parabens, sulfates, gluten, fillers, synthetic fragrances, harmful chemicals, and dyes.

They sent two of their products suited for dehydrated skin. One of them is the Icebergs Hydrating Mask ($28), which is meant to be used every other day for the first week and then 2-3 times per week afterward to hydrate the skin. It contains red algae to replenish the skin and enhance the skin barrier’s function, hyaluronic acid to retain moisture and help decrease the appearance of fine lines, and aloe vera to soothe, hydrate, and heal the skin.

Coming in gel texture, this face mask has a cooling effect that lasts until you rinse it. It dries and looks like glue but doesn’t feel tightening or pulling. It’s supposed to be rinsed with water and it can be a bit difficult because of the clear texture. You can’t really see what you’re washing off, you can just feel. This leaves the skin dry and soft. After one use, I can tell that this would be enjoyed by those with #oilyskin because it removes all the excess oil on your face without leaving it tight. This feels really gentle on the skin and after a month of use, I can definitely count on this to hydrate my skin and leave it soft and plump. This is one of the products that surprised me the most because I thought it would be able to bring anything to my skincare table. However, over time, I have come to appreciate the hydrating benefits it provides to my skin.

The other product that they let me try was the No Worries Hydrating Face Moisturizer ($45). The moisturizer promises to help repair damage, soften the appearance of fine lines, and replenish the skin. It contains hyaluronic acid, vitamin e to repair, rosehip oil to brighten, and macadamia oil to regenerate, soften, and soothe the skin.

This has a thick texture that feels moisturizing to the skin. It’s thicker than most moisturizers that I have and leaves a bit of a tacky finish. For my oily skin, I prefer to use this at night, especially right after using strong actives as this provides a soothing sensation and makes me feel like it seals in all the products as I sleep. It works well with my face during colder days because even though it’s thick, it doesn’t feel like it’s blocking my pores. Even when I use this alone, right after cleansing, I wake up with soft and smooth skin after using this, which I really like. I would recommend this to those who like moisturizers that are on the thicker side.

Overall, I am pleased with my #roeglow experience but the Icebergs Hydrating Mask is a clear favorite. This would work great for those with dehydrated skin and even those with sensitive skin as the ingredients are simple and clean.

Skincare and Makeup Review: Frank Body Lip Products

Just look at these gorgeous-looking lip products from Frank Body.

Their Lip Scrub ($14.95) smells exactly like the body scrub and it’s an easy way to exfoliate my lips. It contains coffee, sugar, cold-pressed macadamia oil, and beeswax so it smells and tastes so sweet before leaving it feeling soft and moisturized.

At night, I apply the Lip Balm ($11.95), which contains coffee arabica seed oil, vitamin e, coconut, and grapeseed oils, and lanolin to soothe, hydrate, and nourish the lips.

It’s similar to most lip balms but I like the packaging, specifically. It’s easy to carry around, especially when my lips are extremely dry. It dispenses products easily the texture and weight of the balm feel light.

For some color, the Taupe-Less And Cherry Bomb Lip & Cheek Tints ($11.95 each) uses lanolin, coconut oil, coffee seed oil, and honeycomb to moisturize and hydrate the lips while adding some tint. Taupe-Less has a nude tint while Cherry Bomb offers a wine-colored tint that looks fun. Both offer a slight sheen but it applies thinner than the lip balm, making it feel lightweight.

The Shimmer Lip Gloss can be used alone or as a topper to your matte lip color if you’re feeling celebratory. It has glow dust, coffee seed oil, grape seed oil, citrus extract, and lanolin to moisturize with an additional oomph to your look.
