Simple, Natural, and Pure – that’s Humboldt’s Cremeplexion’s beauty

Humboldt Soap Company Cremeplexion Facial Moisturizer

First impressions make a difference in many aspects of your life from meeting new people to interviewing for a job to dating. But it can also be important in products and Humboldt Soap Company Cremeplexion proved that to me when I received it from the company to review.

I opened this colorful package and smiled when I saw it. One thing to know about Humboldt Soap Company is that they consider themselves to be simple, natural, and pure. That was clear to me from day one. The simple clear plastic packaging loaded with colorful crinkles showed me that the emphasis is on product and not on fancy packaging.

It’s going to be hard for me to gush about Cremeplexion without you thinking that the company paid me to do so. But gush I will because this facial moisturizer is everything it says it is and more. I’ve used a lot of moisturizers over the 8+ years of Beauty Info Zone but it’s rare that one surprises me in such a positive way.

First and foremost for me is that moisturizer is fragrance free. That’s not important to everyone but it is the difference between a hit and a miss for me. Cremeplexion is a gentle moisturizer for all skin types so I feel good about recommending it. It’s made with Collagen, Seaweed Extract, and Argan Oil to nourish and balance your skin.

I think maybe it’s a combination of the packaging and the name Cremeplexion that makes me feel like I’m having an ice cream treat every time I use it. I really do think of soft serve ice cream when I scoop some out and apply it on my skin. It’s not sticky though. It’s totally refreshing. I love the feeling of it. It sinks in within minutes leaving my skin hydrated.

I often put in a list of ingredients but I don’t always know what they are. Cremeplexion has simple ingredients and has broken them down so that I can understand what I’m using on my face.

* Argan Oil  –  derived from the kernels of the Argan tree of Morocco, Argan oil is an excellent source of vitamin E and antioxidants.

* Coconut Oil  –  an excellent source of lauric acid and vitamin E for moisturizing.

* Shea Butter  –  natural fat derived from the fruit of the Karite tree, an excellent natural moisturizer.

* Vegetable Glycerin  –  a natural humectant that draws and retains moisture.

* Cocoa Butter  – this is expressed from the roasted seeds of the cocoa tree for its skin lubricating and moisturizing effects.

* Collagen  –  Amino acids which aid in replenishing elasticity to the skin.

* Seaweed Extract  –  seaweed extract helps reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It’s also effective in treating UV damage as it stimulate the production of new fibroblast keratinocyte cells.

Everything is pronounceable and everything is natural. Isn’t that what you want on your face?

I learned a big lesson with Humboldt Soap Company Cremeplexion Facial Moisturizer. Not long ago I reviewed a lovely night cream and I was all set to buy it when Cremeplexion arrived. I realized then that I had finished the other product in a very short time which is rare for me. Looking into them both I discovered that not only were the prices vastly different but so was the amount of product. Humboldt Soap Company Cremeplexion Facial Moisturizer is $20 for 2.5 oz while the other I’d been using is $42 for 1 oz. That’s a huge difference.

What’s important to know is that I am totally impressed with Humboldt Soap Company Cremeplexion Facial Moisturizer and look forward to using this as my night cream every night. I have no dry spots using this moisturizer, I’m pleased with the fragrance, and I am thrilled with the impact of Cremeplexion. I give this 5 Stars – simple, natural, pure stars.  —  Marcia

The revelation that is Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream

When Makeup Wars chose Night Creams as our topic of the week I wanted to get behind the use of a night cream rather than just a moisturizer. I’m sharing my most recent favorite rather than going through a litany of all I’ve used. But first, why do we need a night cream?

  1. You can use a regular moisturizer but I’d avoid the ones with sunscreen for overnight.
  2. Your skin is generally more ready to absorb active ingredients at night when you’re at rest.
  3. Your skin has more power to regenerate at night when you are sleeping.
  4. Using a night cream helps keep your face better nourished as well as helping it repair damaged cells.
  5. Many areas are boosted with a night cream: collagen, elasticity, better blood circulation, and cell renewal.

Dermatologists and aestheticians usually recommend that you choose a fragrance free product and nothing that is too thick as it can clog pores. I used to think that a thicker cream was the best for night use but I find that my skin responds better to one that isn’t too thick as those often make me break out.

Now that I’ve done my lecture the product in my bathroom for the last several weeks is Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream. Actually I’ve been using the 4 Robin McGraw Revelation products I was sent but concentrating today on the Hydra Qwench.

Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwencch Moisturizing Night Cream

The most interesting thing about me is that I never watched the Dr. Phil show. I wasn’t home from teaching when it was on plus I’m not much of a TV watcher. I’d seen him on Oprah and I’d seen her occasionally but Robin McGraw wasn’t much on my radar. When I first learned that she had her own line I sort of wrote it off. But when asked to test the line I was eager to find out more about it. And I’m really glad I did.

Robin McGraw Revelation Hydra Qwench checks off most of the list I’m looking for. First and foremost is that it’s not fragranced. I do notice a tiny bit of fragrance if I stick my nose in it but once on my face nada, nothing, nil. Second is that the texture is perfect for my liking. It’s not too rich and I don’t have any clogged pores from it. It works for all skin types and it’s well priced at $42. Plus with your first order from Robin McGraw Revelation you can get 25% off while any time you order you get free shipping.

Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream

I love the delivery system since I get no waste. You push down the top and up comes the night cream. It’s never too much which is excellent since you don’t need to glop up your skin. A thin layer that absorbs well is the perfect amount. Hydra Qwench is meant to

  • Diminish the appearance of sagging skin
  • naturally hydrate and moisturize
  • improve the look of dull, tired skin

    Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream

    Squalane

    A natural plant ingredient that resembles our own skin, allowing it to penetrate easily and increase moisture. Squalane is an anti-oxidant that feeds skin cells to promote cell growth, leaving the skin smooth and silky soft.

    Hyaluronic Acid

    As we age, our skin’s collagen decreases and wrinkles become more visible. Hyaluronic Acid helps promote skin’s natural collagen levels, making skin visibly plumper and firmer.

    Caprylic Acid

    A natural fatty acid found in coconut oil. Because of it’s antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it is used to help fight acne and many skin conditions.

    Ingredients:

    Water/Aqua/Eau, Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Teprenone, Polyisobutene, Polysorbate 20, Xylitylglucoside, Anhydroxylitol, Xylitol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polyacrylate-13, Phenoxyethanol.

  • A formula that’s 100% free from harmful chemicals, dyes, parabens, SLS, mineral oil, and animal testing.

I’ll be sharing the other 3 products I have from the line later but Hydra Qwench Moisturizing Night Cream is my favorite out of 4 excellent products. Even if Robin McGraw Revelation wasn’t on your radar before now that it is I think you’d love it as much as I do. —  Marcia
