My Review of the Azure Naturals 'Ocean Minerals' Product Line

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"90 powerful Oceanic Minerals, micro minerals, vitamins and vital nutrients help repair, rejuvenate and deeply nourish your skin, giving it a healthier, more youthful glow. This wonderful line of Ocean Mineral products is specially formulated to work together to improve the effectiveness of one another. For that reason, we would like you to use them all."

Review…

I was sent the entire Ocean Minerals product line-- a cleanser, toner, hydration creme, and a mask from Azure Naturals to review.  

The prices range for these products from $15.95 to $19.95.  All of these products ship free with Amazon Prime.


Packaging & Presentation of the Azure Naturals 'Ocean Minerals' Product Line
  
All three of these products arrived to me shipped in a protective wrap.  There were not any issues with defects or leakage.  Each product was in excellent condition!  All labels are color-coded to match with the Ocean Mineral theme.  Here, you will see a cleanser, toner, hydration creme, and a mask.


Beginning with the Ultimate Ocean Mineral Cleanser, the front label introduces the product and provides a few key ingredients:  Organic aloe, MSM, Rosehip, and Tea Tree oil.  The back of the bottle provides detailed product information, directions, ingredients, as well as the website information. This product was made in the USA, and is not tested on animals.


Next, we have the Ultimate Ocean Mineral Facial Toner. The front label introduces the product and provides a few key ingredients:  Organic aloe, MSM, Irish Moss, and Sea Kelp.  The back of the bottle provides detailed product information, directions, ingredients, as well as the website information. This product was made in the USA, and is not tested on animals.


Next in the line would be the Ultimate Ocean Mineral Organic Hydration Creme. The front label introduces the product and provides a few key ingredients:  Organic aloe, MSM, Irish Moss, and Shea Butter.  This is the only product that has '3-sides' to the label. 



The right side of the label details the product, provides the directions, and lists the company website address.  The left side of the label outlines all of the ingredients. This product was made in the USA, and is not tested on animals.


Lastly, the Ultimate Ocean Mineral Seaweed Hydration Mask. The front label introduces the product and provides a few key ingredients:  Organic aloe, MSM, Irish Moss, and Spirulina.  The back of the tub provides detailed product information, directions, as well as the website information. This product was made in the USA, and is not tested on animals.  You can actually find the list of ingredients on a label on the bottom of the tub, but I found this out after I put the camera away.


My Personal Experience with the Azure Naturals 'Ocean Minerals' Product Line

Azure Naturals has been around for a while, and last year I was introduced to a few of their introductory products.  There have been a lot of like-products that are being made, and I actually have been duped with a few of them.  From now on, I am only reviewing quality, unique, and professional skincare products.  I will not support profiteering-- only respectable and genuine companies.  I have been impressed with Azure Naturals, and I love 'product lines' because it just make it a little easier to get the results you are looking for when you have a 'system' that is geared towards it.


Both the cleanser and the hydration creme use a pump dispenser.



The toner is awesome because it is a 'spray toner'.  The mask is in a tub, and the top screws on and off.


I go through a TON of face wash. I use it every day, twice a day. Sometimes three times if I have to do a mid-day wash after strenuous work.  I love the way it smells. It’s very clean and refreshing. It is very concentrated, so you don’t really need a lot (like you would a Neutrogena or Noxema wash). You can use about half of the usual amount. It cools your skin and I believe this is from the Tea Tree oil, but in all ways, I am very happy with the results of this. Use with your hands or with a sponge. Both have been effective for me.


I LOVE this toner. As a person with a pretty intense skin care regimen, I find that this makes the whole ‘toning’ process incredibly simple. I cleanse my face (sometimes basic other times with a deep scrub) and simply cover my face with a few fine mists of this toner. How easy is that? It is refreshing, you can really feel an immediate difference, and it smells really good. Even my husband likes to use it, and he is very manly (so he’ll probably get mad if he read this review, haha!). This is definitely a staple when it comes to morning and evening care.


Nothing beats a face cream that smells good, works even better, and brightens your skin (visibly!) after one use. This is a very refreshing face cream. Typically for me, it’s hard to match a cream for what I am looking for. It applies evenly and absorbs nicely. The ingredients inside of this formulation are wonderful (and organic!). You only need a little bit to get the results you are looking for, and within a few days you will be able to. It is very moisturizing and works well to hydrate the dry areas without excess residue or greasiness (this is especially important if you have combination or oily skin). It smells very natural—like it has been fragranced with essential oils.


I used this last week as my ‘Sunday Mask Day’ mask. I just had to try it because I typically go for the mud masks. This is the first mask that I have used that is not clay-based that you wipe off and not let soak in your skin indefinitely.  It applies very, very nicely. I used a cosmetic brush to apply it to get a nice even and smooth coat. After a few minutes on my face, I get a cooling sensation almost, and it dries after about 12-15 minutes. After washing it off, it doesn’t pull all of the moisture out of your skin like a mud mask does, but it actually locks the moisture in and gives you a beautiful skin rejuvenation.



Pros of the Azure Naturals 'Ocean Minerals' Product Line
  • Uses certified organic ingredients.
  • The fragrance is just amazing!
  • The products are color-coded, that way you know that they belong to the same line.
  • Although part of a line, each product can be used solo if you wish to do so!
    Cons of the Azure Naturals 'Ocean Minerals' Product Line
    • I have not found any cons of any of these products.
          Summary

          Talk about quality!  These products have really been nice.  If you use them all together, you will definitely see a nice change in your skin.  They are well made, smell great, and overall they create a pleasant experience.  If you have a pretty down-pat skincare line, try adding one of these.  You will love it!

          Oops....I commented on your coffee grinder post, but in the rafflecopter I think I clicked on the wrong line and put in my Pinterest username by mistake. :-( Anyway, thanks for this great giveaway!
