Zenutrients Argan Skin Salve-ation

Zenutrients Argan Skin Salve-ation

We all love eye makeup that are a tough as nails when we're sweating and greasing up like pigs in this heat, but we detest removing them when we're exhausted at the end of the day. I dare say there's nothing like stubborn waterproof mascara to make us give up on life and lash! Good thing there are products like the Zenutrients Argan Skin Salve-ation (P699) which simplifies the process while nourishing your lashes and the skin around your eyes.

The Argan Skin Salve-ation is a beeswax balm laced with argan oil, sunflower oil, chamomile extract, lavender oil, and cucumber extract. It's an all-around product that you can use on your skin, hair, and nails to moisturize and soften the area. The balm is only semi-solid, making it easy to scoop out with a finger. It's quite concentrated and rich so a little goes a long way!

How to Use: As a deep cleanser: massage onto skin, then wipe with a warm cloth, wash face | As a makeup remover: apply & wipe away with tissue or cloth | As a mask: Leave on post-cleanse as a 30 minute (or overnight) moisture mask, remove with warm washcloth | As a dry skin balm: apply to neck, hands & feet or to dry spots | As a hair treatment: apply in bath, leaving it for 5 minutes before washing | To tame frizzy ends: apply a small amount onto damp or dry hair | As a lip conditioner: apply to lips as often as needed | As an eye salve: dab under eyes every evening (or even twice a day) | Apply to tips & toes to soften cuticles | Use to quench skin post-sunburn

I like using it on dry spots like my heels and elbows, but my favorite function for it is as an eye makeup remover. It loosens up waterproof mascara and eyeliner thus allowing them to be wiped away with tissue. It wipes off easily and leaves no residue. It doesn't break me out at all which was my worry with something so rich with oil.

I do need to spend a bit of time massaging my eye makeup out though. I also lose a lash or two occasionally if I'm not careful. Oh and the balm has a slight minty tingle. As long as I manage to avoid my eyeballs, it's fine.

As for the scent, it is a fresh floral, like being in a field of blooming lavender and chamomile - quite wonderful actually. It's so heady that you can even use this as a balm perfume! I should do that one time. However, if you're using it as skincare, I find the scent much too strong. I don't want my face smelling like I perfumed it two hours after I removed it.

I like the Zenutrients Argan Skin Salve-ation despite a couple of cons. It does fix up my dry spots and hands marvelously, and can even function as a perfume. It's also good with taking off even the most long-wearing eye makeup with a little bit of patience. ^_^
