I’m happy to be introducing you to a fabulous product that I have been using for the last 2 months: Osmosis Melt Away Gelee. You’ve long heard about double cleansing but you’ve never seen a product quite like this.

Mostly I hear about oils for makeup removal prior to washing but Melt Away Gelee is a paraben free gel that is very soothing. I like to use my fingers to apply this to my face but others like using a cotton pad with it.

Some days I get super lazy and want the easiest way to remove my makeup and this is when I’m really thrilled I have this cleansing product. TMI but I sit on the toilet seat (closed) and pick up a small amount of this clear gel and rub my entire face with it. I massage it in to pick up all the vestiges of makeup. When I’m done I’ll use Micellar Water (either a cleansing sheet or on a cotton square) and remove the gel. My face is not only ultra cleansed but it’s softer than ever.

Melt Away Gelee doesn’t clog my pores and there’s nothing harsh about it. It just melts my foundation etc. away without any scrubbing.

Another way I use this is prior to cleansing with my sonic cleansing machine (Sonulase). I remove my facial makeup with the gelee, add cleanser to the Sonulase, and wash while exfoliating and treating my skin. It’s not an extra step at all.

This is said to remove waterproof makeup but I find it doesn’t remove my mascara well. To conquer that I take a q-tip and put some on the end and gently rub. It’s a little messy though since the black ends up on my face but it’s easily washed away.

I have nothing but praise for this gentle makeup remover. The ingredients are moisturizing (avocado oil, jojoba oil and aloe vera) and soothing. If you have any irritation on your face this would be an excellent choice too.

Miracle Skin Transformer has added a new product to their fascinating line – MIRACLE BALM. We’ve been lucky to be able to review MST products before so we were especially excited when they sent us Miracle Balm to test and review.

What makes Miracle Balm so unique is that it’s a multi-purpose product that is loaded with the most amazing ingredients. Just look at this list: Tamanu Oil, Manuka Honey, Shea Butter, Blue Mountain Sage Oil, Japanese Licorice Root, Evening Primrose Oil, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sesame Seed Oil and Moringa Oil. These ingredients are there to soothe and protect skin.

You can use this balm anywhere you want on your body – cuticles, lips, face, feet, knees and elbows, and even hair. Anything that is in distress will be calling out for Miracle Balm and it won’t be disappointed.

MARCIA’S REVIEW:

The power of Miracle Balm by Miracle Skin Transformer came through when I needed it most and took a chance using it on my face. I had used it on my feet and elbows just like MST said to and liked it but the big wow came when I had a reaction to an ingredient in a skincare product.

I test a lot of skincare and rarely have problems so when I started getting a ton of small bumps and what appeared to be under-the-skin pimples on my chin I didn’t give it much thought. When it grew and became obvious that’s when I panicked. It took me a while to realize I was reacting to the main ingredient in a new set of skincare and that I had actually reacted to it once before. In an attempt to solve this I noticed Miracle Balm on my vanity and figured it was worth a try. I cut back to basics and applied this balm instead of moisturizer on my chin and within 3 days those bumps were almost gone.

On the package it says “skin smoothing creamy oil” but it doesn’t feel oily at all (unless I’m doing something wrong). Instead it feels like a thick balm that is soothing. I used it lightly during the day since it is thick and a little more heavily at night. While it is not recommended as a pimple cream, it did help with the breakouts since they were a reaction to an ingredient. According to Miracle Skin Transformer “This multi-purpose beauty balm specially designed to immediately hydrate sensitive, irritated skin, and address and soothe the multiple sources of aggression and stress.”mst miracle balm back box

I’m currently using this in a few ways. I have a cut on my face that’s getting Miracle Balm applied several times a day; it no longer stings or is sensitive. Plus it’s healing without scabbing. I use it on my elbows and ankles after I take a shower since that seems to be when it absorbs the best. And my toes are getting some Miracle Balm since I need to see a podiatrist but haven’t gone. This is my home version of a podiatrist. I’m happy to have this in my arsenal of tools and believe you would be too.

LISA’S REVIEW:

Well, I used my entire tube up, so that’s a pretty good indication of how much I liked it! Miracle Balm does seem to be a miracle for the skin. I have to give my cats medicine and sometimes the cat wins…and I end up with scratches. Putting¬†Miracle Balm over cuts once they start to heal really speeds up the healing process. I put it over bruises and they heal quicker. I smooth it on dry areas and they soften and disappear almost instantly. I think I love it the most for dry cuticles. After reading Marcia’s review I am bummed I never tried it on my face!

Like Marcia noted, it’s not really a balm, it’s more of a creamy lotion. The squeeze tube is terrific because it keeps the product sanitary. It is a great option for pretty much anyone since it doesn’t have a noticeable fragrance and it is formulated for sensitive skin. Miracle Skin Transformer Miracle Balm is definitely something everyone should have in their skin care arsenal.
