When the Willing Beauty Company first reached out to me, I was inspired by their story.
It begins with Bella Weems, who, at 14, founded one of the fastest growing social selling companies in history, Origami Owl®. Bella and her mother Chrissy met up with Christy and Willa, another mother-daughter duo who had founded a better-for-you teen skincare line, willaTM.
Christy was diagnosed with skin cancer at the age of 29 when Willa was born. She spent years of researching and developing the teen skincare line 'willaTM' to help her daughter and young women across the nation achieve great skin with great products/ingredients.
The Weems immediately knew a partnership between Origami Owl and Willa would be a dream come true: combining their keen social selling know-how with Christy and Willa’s skincare expertise would make a difference in the lives of others — not only in the U.S., but around the world. Thus began Willing Beauty.
I was really excited to try these products! When I read about the company and noticed they use safe ingredients to deliver great skincare, I was all in. The packaging is beautiful and showcases their mission to deliver quality products. I'm a sucker for beautiful packaging! I believe if a product looks amazing on the outside, I can only imagine the great benefits on the inside.
ABOUT THE PRODUCTS
The 5 products shown above are apart of their HY + 5 Challenge. The HY + 5 skincare system fights the signs of aging while providing hydration and protection against environmental stressors. Each product contains HY+5 Complex, is rich in hyaluronic acid plus 5 forces of nature - vitamin C, prickly pear cactus seed oil, marine glycoproteins, alpine edelweiss flower, and deep sea hydrothermal enzymes, all known for their ability to survive and thrive in some of the most compromising climates. These products are great for all skin types, especially if you have sensitive skin.
Right now, Willing Beauty is offering these 5 products as a package deal for only $98. They normally retail at $138, so that's a good deal!
First up we have the 'Do Over' Nourishing Cleanser. The moment this cleanser goes on your skin you will notice how natural it feels. It has a lightweight texture, and it almost feels similar to a gel. It doesn't contain a scent which is something I like. You will notice that this product does not foam up like most cleansers.
This cleanser removes makeup and dead skin cells thanks to apple extract, while the HY + 5 Complex hydrates and strengthens the skin.
This cleanser alone comes in a 3oz package and retails at $18 by itself.
Next is the 'Partner in Time' Age-Defying Night Serum. This serum is lightweight in texture, and it goes on so smoothly. I didn't notice a scent with this product as well, so that was a plus. My dry skin soaks up this serum, but then it feels so soft and supple in the morning!
This is the 'Sleepover Replenishing Night Cream.' You guys.. this night cream is like whipped icing! Thank gosh it doesn't smell like icing because I would want to eat it!
The texture is so creamy and buttery, it melts right into the skin. I love the texture and the fact that it doesn't feel greasy or heavy. Once again, I didn't notice a scent with this product either. (I'm definitely ok with that) I can't handle products that have over powering smells.
This moisturizer is probably might favorite out of all 5. This product will give you beautiful youthful skin with Its moisture-attracting molecules, age-defying antioxidants and brightening fruit acids to encourage cell turnover and stimulation of collagen.
This product comes in a 1oz package and retails at $30 by itself.
This 'Daydream Illuminating Day Moisturizer' is the perfect moisturizer for the morning time. It is lightweight and doesn't contain a scent either. The texture reminds me more of a serum than a moisturizer. Your skin will feel softer and ready for the day ahead.
This comes in a 1oz package and retails at $24 if purchased by itself.
A tinted primer?! Sign me up! I had never used a tinted primer before. I've used tinted moisturizers in the past, but never a tinted primer. This 'Get Set SPF 30 Tinted Primer' is a 3-in-1 skin perfecting formula featuring the HY+5 Complex. It uses light-reflecting pigments to create a glowing, soft focus effect, while non-nano mineral sunscreen offers broad-spectrum protection. It evens out skin tone instantly whether you wear it alone or under foundation.
I like to wear this alone during the workweek. It's so easy and quick!
This comes in a .67oz package and retails at $24 by itself.
HOW TO USE THE PRODUCTS
In the morning, start by washing your face with Do Over Nourishing Cleanser. (If I'm in a hurry I'll just cleanse my face with a toner and then apply the Daydream moisturizer.)
Next, for a burst of lightweight hydration that keeps skin moisturized all day, apply Daydream Illuminating Day Moisturizer. Finally, don’t leave your house before protecting your skin with 'Get Set SPF 30 Tinted Primer.'
In the evening, wash away the day with the 'Do Over Nourishing Cleanser.' Next, help turn back the clock with Partner In Time Age-Defying Night Serum. Finally, lock-in all the moisture with Sleepover
Replenishing Night Cream.
HOW MY SKIN LOOKS AND FEELS
So before I used these products by Willing Beauty, I had terrible adult acne. It was mostly hormonal acne so it was located around my chin and jawline. I've been using these products for a couple of days now and I'm happy to report that my acne has definitely subsided. I have a few 'tiny' blemishes that are almost completely gone!
My skin also feels more hydrated than it did before. If you have dry sensitive skin, these products would be worth trying out.
