AURORA BEAUTY – MAHALO REVIEW

When you have as many green beauty products as I do the struggle is real. I am constantly torn between using what I have and continuing to try new products in an effort to find the best of everything! I was so excited to discover Aurora Beauty’s custom samples. For only $15 you get to choose 5 samples of your choice. Aurora Beauty carries almost all of my favorite brands, ecobrow, henne, hynt, innersense, josh rosebrook, laurel, lilfox & moss. Just to name a few! I have been eyeing agent nateur, kumari, cocovit & the little alchemist which they also carry.

This is a great way to try new products if you are new to green beauty and for those of us who already have more than we can use be able to pick which products are the best fit for our collection. This is how I fell in love with Mahalo, Mun and Fitglow! Aurora Beauty has been so generous to offer my readers code AGB15 to save at checkout.

MAHALO PELE MASK & VITALITY ELIXIR

This combo is seriously a force to be reckoned with. I noticed results the very first time I used my samples. I could hardly wait for my full size products to arrive. For reference with masks and facial elixirs it typically takes me a few days to notice what results I am seeing if any. Not with these. I am glad I finally discovered them, my only regret is that I didn’t discover them earlier!

MAHALO PELE MASK

It is meant to be used once or twice a week. My face was so radiant after using the Mahalo Pele Mask, I am finding it hard not to reach for it every morning. You activate by mixing a tablespoon of the dry powder with a tablespoon or two of water or hydrosol in a bowl. When it starts to bubble you apply it on your clean face with a mask brush or fingers and let it sit on your skin for 20-40 minutes or until it is dry. I like to use it in the morning right when I wake up I cleanse my face, apply the mask, cook breakfast and by the time I finish with our morning routine the mask is dry and I hop in the shower to rinse off.

The best part about this mask is it is a serious multitasker and it flawlessly addresses every single one of my skin concerns. It is supercharged with the “botox plant” leaving my face feeling like it did when I was little and my aunt would french braid my hair. I call it the “mommy my pigtails are too tight” effect! My nose is one of my problem areas and I struggle with blackheads and congestion. It addresses this area by detoxifying and tightening my pores. Visible difference! On my chin I struggle with new acne and acne scars. It calms the inflammation, heals my current acne and pulls out impurities. Basically my face looks and feels absolutely amazing after I use it. There is seriously not one thing I would change about it.

MAHALO VITALITY ELIXIR

The Mahalo Vitality Elixir also started out as a sample. When the combo (pele mask followed by vitality elixir) worked SO well, I didn’t want to mess with perfection. The elixir is designed for me, I mean those concerned with acne breakouts, irritations and signs of aging. It has a rich yellow/orange color, the floral and woodsy scent is highly addicting! My skin typically rebels against most thick elixirs. Not this one! It is thick yes, but it absorbs very quickly. As directed I waited 10 minutes after removing the Pele Mask and then applied the Vitality Elixir. It balanced the oil production which is hard to do with my unruly skin! It also worked wonders on my active acne and my acne scars. I couldn’t stop smiling at how great my skin looked after using these two powerhouse products.

It is packed full of nutrients for your skin:

This luscious fusion tenderly cares for your skin by pairing exotic Polynesian Tamanu Oilwith exquisite organic supercritical extracts of Chia Seed, Black Cumin Seed, Sea Buckthorn, Carrot Seed and Turmeric.

Infused with age defying COQ10, the sumptuous elixir seamlessly and gently caresses the essence of the skin to create luxurious rejuvenation and a face that illuminates youthful vitality.
