Mad Hippie Honest Review

IMG_7214.jpeg

My skin care routine is a work in progress. Lately, I’ve been trying to get really serious about it. 

Last week on What We Said Podcast we interviewed an aesthetician (listen to that episode HERE) & she got me VERY motivated to level up my skin care.

I’ve been scoping and trying out several different products, brands, & routines. In the last couple months since I’ve been consistent with this new routine I really believe my skin has gotten SO much clearer and bouncier! 

A brand that I’ve had my eye on for several years now is Mad Hippie. Everything about their branding to their diverse products just gets me all excited. In January, I finally got my hands on some of their best sellers & I instantly fell in love. 

I’m sure you’ve heard of or seen this magical brand at Urban Outfitters, Ulta, or Free People. They are a Cruelty-Free & Vegan company using natural ingredients (that can I just say - smell AMAZING). THIS is exactly the type of company I can truly get behind. 

Here are some of my favorite products of theirs that I’ve been loving... 

1.) Exfoliating Serum

This exfoliating serum is sent from above. I always thought exfoliating meant cleansers with little beads & scrubbing all my skin off with a loofa. WRONG. I use this serum every other night after I cleanse ( I switch between this and the Vitamin A serum) - it’s light, smells amazing, & my usually oily skin feels amazing and extra balanced when I wake up the next day.  With ingredients like lactic acid, apple stem cells, and white tea this serum will make your skin feel brand spankin’ new.

 

2.) Cleansing Oil

Made with organic rosehip oil, organic pumpkin seed oil, and ginger this cleansing oil feels like a mini facial. I massage it into my face after a long day, then I take a clean face towel, run it under warm (borderline hot) water and then drape it over my face for minute or two. This allows my skin to absorb the goodness and opens and cleans out the pores. Then with the same cloth, I lightly wipe the excess oil off my face. Then my skin is clean,hydrated and ready for a good night sleep. & again, it smells like heaven... 

 

3.) Hydrating Nutrient Mist

Ok, this hydrating mist is a unique but very beneficial addition to your skin care routine. Infused with vitamin C, pomegranate seed extract, and resveratrol (which is a super amazing anti-aging antioxidant), this mist revitalizes your skin! I use this after I tone and before I apply moisturizer in the morning. It helps to reduce the appearance of sun damage and if we’re being honest… I have LOTS of sun damage. I taught swim lessons & life-guarded in the summer, outside in the AZ sun for 3 or 4 years during my teens. I used sunscreen but still.... it gave me serious sun damage. I was tan as hell but felt like my skin was turning into leather & I wasn’t even 20 years old yet. Now I try & stay out of the sun & when I want to be golden - I spray tan, baby. Anyways, I spray this hydrating mist on my face (especially my nose and cheeks), neck, chest and hands & rub it in real good. It has an ocean breeze smell & it’s light - so it glides right on & my skin DRINKS it up. 

 

4.) Vitamin A Serum

This serum is made with powerhouse ingredients like aloe vera, HPR, and phytoceramide. It is such a pretty milky texture. It helps reduce the appearance of sun damage, discoloration, and wrinkles (I’ve got all three). I use this serum every other night before I moisturize - it plumps up my skin, exfoliates, and hydrates!

 

Not only is it important to use natural & healthy products for your skin, but it’s also important to pick products & support companies that do good things all around - environmentally & humanely. 

I would love to know what your favorite Mad Hippie products are? 

There is another post coming soon about the rest of the products I use daily - so be looking forward to that!
