To start, Precious Skin Elixirs was founded by the gorgeous Marissa (pictured above; the photo was snagged from the Precious Skin Elixirs website). She suffered with hormonal acne during her second pregnancy, so she sought a way to heal her skin naturally in the form of a luxurious self care routine with a conscience. Her background as a artist, jeweler and entrepreneur help her bring her vision of a natural luxury skincare line to life. After years of testing and formulating, Precious Skin Elixirs was born.
According to the website, Precious Skin Elixirs is "beautifully innovative and effective holistic skin care, designed to delight the spirit, tempt the senses and reveal your best skin. We source with intention, choosing organic, wild-crafted, cruelty-free and sustainable ingredients. We do not use fillers. Every product in our line is a concentrated, carefully balanced formulation to deliver radiant results. We do not use petroleum, parabens, silicones, synthetic fragrance, phthalates, sulfates, carcinogens, GMO ingredients, or ingredients that have been sprayed with pesticides."
Now I like the sound of that, so I was more than happy to test out the Precious Skin Elixirs Onyx Purity Mask.
"Not your typical face mask. Onyx is a profound skin treatment that dives deep into pores to detoxify, calm inflammation and speed heal blemishes. Impurities are coaxed out of skin while an infusion of minerals, Vitamin C, and a blend of adaptogenic herbs brightens, rejuvenates underlying connective tissue, and delivers vital nutrients for a balanced, glowing complexion. Onyx is water activated, releasing its potency upon each use," as stated on the site.
Once dry, you can rinse it off at any time (up to an hour after application, according to the directions). I carefully splash it off and then use a washcloth (not a pale one) to ensure I remove it all. To my surprise, this mask leaves my skin soft, not parched. It draws out impurities and leaves my skin smooth and tone. I think it's perfect for someone like me, who's battling wrinkles and the occasional blemish at the same time.
The Rose Quartz Balancing Hydrosol is a luxurious follow-up to the mask. Precious Skin Elixirs encourages customers to "indulge in the healing properties of pure botanical distillates that soothe and balance the skin. This delightful synergy restores skin to an optimum state of hydration any time of day with the delicate scent of soft florals and honeyed tea."
trial sizes, which is a more affordable way to take them for a test drive.
