Winner # 53 - MissyG
I love all-natural beauty products; however, more often than not, I am going to pay quite a bit to get all-natural. On top of that, I am often trying the product and I am not guaranteed it will work so then I might possibly be out my money. It can be frustrating but then so worth when you find something that works and is all-natural.
When I said that I would test mirra's beauty product line, I was not convinced it was the product for me at first.
Mirra products are made with natural ingredients, such as olive oil, aloe leaf juice, and cranberry, bamboo, honey and chicory root extracts. Proven technologies are used for many of the products too. For example, the revolutionary oleosome emulsion technology is used in skin care products to deliver long lasting moisture that keeps protecting and nourishing skin long after application.
Mirra products include shampoos and conditioners; hair styling products; body washes and mists; facial and skin care lotions, cleansers and cleansing cloths; eye firming and age defying creams; and cosmetic brushes.
I was sent 7 full size mirra products to test for two weeks and here are my thoughts:
Shampoo & Conditioner: I absolutely love the smell of both of these. Just the other day, I breathed in the scent and realized how calming it was. After a long day with two sick, whiny children, it was a refreshing, calming balm. I love how well the shampoo and conditioner works as well. I am somewhat picky about my hair products and felt that they worked as well as any others that I have used.
Body Wash: I loved the scent of this. It was not overpowering and left you feeling clean but refreshed at the same time.
Body Lotion: The lotion was great but I was sent the Lemongrass scent and my asthma kicked in so I was no longer able to continue using it.
Hair Gel: My husband tested this for me and while he normally used the extra strength hold and not the flexible hold, he really liked it. The scent was great and it worked as well as non natural products.
Day Cream: I am guilty of not using very many creams on my face because they have a tendency to break me out but I loved this one. I loved that I didn't feel guilty about the chemicals in it and I love how it worked. Winter time is always the worst for dry skin.
Wrinkle Eye Reduction Cream: I also loved this one because it wasn't oily in anyway but did feel like it made skin around my eyes firmer.
