Review: IT Cosmetics Miracle Water 3-in-1 Glow Tonic #ITCosmetics #MiracleWater #3in1GlowTonic #MicellarCleanser

8.5 fl.oz./250mL $38.00
Sometimes you find a brand where everything they make is just wonderful. IT Cosmetics is that brand. I have been using this brand for a few years now and every year they get better and better. Their products are just amazing. Everything they put out has more than one purpose to it. IT Cosmetics puts out multitasking products so that you don't have to purchase as many products, you save money in the long run and their products are made with one goal in mind: to give you real results. And their products do produce results. They put out skincare and makeup that produces real clinically tested results for anti-aging purposes that make it easier on you so that you don't have to use as many products. 

One product in particular that I am speaking of is IT Cosmetics Miracle Water 3-in-1 Glow Tonic. This product is a micellar cleanser, skin brightening radiance booster and an anti-aging treatment essence. All in one product! Developed in conjunction with plastic surgeons, this product instantly transforms your skin and maximizes the benefits of your skincare routine. It is a lightweight no-rinse product that combines your Skin-Brightening Radiance Booster to help purify, balance and brighten the look of your skin. It is also a potent Anti-Aging Treatment Essence to diffuse the the look of lines and wrinkles; as well as a Skin-Softening Micellar Cleanser that gently attracts, traps and removes dirt, oil, impurities and makeup, all in one simple step. This product alone could essentially replace 2-3 products right there. 

Miracle Water 3-in-1 Glow Tonic was created with IT Cosmetics famous Secret Sauce™ Fermented Complex, a clinically advanced combination of 7 penetration-enhancing fermented ingredients. It helps to increase the absorbency and improve the efficacy of your moisturizers and serums. Also, it's infused with Anti-Aging Peptides, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Rose, Aloe, Rice, Chamomile, Green Tea Water, Licorice Root, Vitamin C, Illuminating Drops of Light Technology™ Concentrate and Diamond Powder. Drops of Light Technology™ Concentrate, Bio-Luminescence and Diamond Powder give the look of youthful radiance. It can be used in place of a cleanser, after cleansing to remove the residue of makeup, or after cleansing for powerful anti-aging results immediately and over time. This product can be used by all skin types, even acneic skins. It will not interrupt or hurt acne lesions that have formed. It works best on normal, combination, dry and mature skins. Oily and acneic skins can use it too. In fact, this is the kind of product that was definitely designed for all skins to use without fear of having any breakouts. 

Here is my skin after using Miracle Water:

above: skin after using Miracle Water
Directions for Use: Use this innovative glow tonic morning and evening. Use after cleansing or in place of a cleanser. Use it to purify, hydrate, treat and transform the skin. To apply, saturate a cotton pad and gently sweep across the face to cleanse and remove makeup and impurities for younger, healthier-looking skin. Do not rinse.  Pat remaining product onto skin until fully absorbed. Follow with your favorite IT Cosmetics moisturizer or serum. I personally like Confidence In A Cream. It can also be used with Confidence In A Cleanser, Secret Sauce, Confidence In An Eye Cream and Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream SPF50. Those are the products recommended by IT Cosmetics

Clinically tested results! After a clinical study done to show how well Miracle Water worked:
  • 100% showed improved hydration*
  • 94% say it improved their moisturizer’s effectiveness*
  • 91% saw brighter, clearer skin*
  • 88% say pores appeared minimized*
(*Results observed in a clinical study).

I know I have said this before when referencing an IT Cosmetics product, but I LOVE THIS!!!! Not only does it take off makeup, it literally makes your skin glow. Miracle Water 3-in-1 Glow Tonic is absolutely amazing. It makes your skin look younger almost immediately. I prefer not to use it as a cleanser, but after cleansing, to remove any residue leftover and in the morning after cleansing. After using this you will notice that your skin (almost instantly) looks brighter, more clearer, more awake, looks more even toned, feels softer, smoother and is just glowing. Also, pores look smaller, more minimized. And I did notice that my moisturizer hydrated my skin better because it sunk in immediately and I did not have any problems with leftover greasiness. I did use it to take my makeup off to see how well it worked as a cleanser and it worked extremely well. It took off all of my makeup and mascara in one fell swoop. This product is really just incredible. I am agog at just how wonderful it is. EVERY PRODUCT I USE FROM THIS IT COSMETICS IS JUST AWESOME. And every year their brand comes out with better products than the year before. This brand is on fire and there is no stopping them from becoming one of the best brands in the business.

IT Cosmetics Miracle Water 3-in-1 Glow Tonic retails for $38.00 and comes in a huge 8.5 fl.oz./250mL bottle. It can be purchased online at www.itcosmetics.com and at www.ulta.com, www.qvc.com, www.sephora.com and anywhere IT Cosmetics is sold.

Review: Freeman Beauty Feeling Beautiful Brightening Green Tea + Orange Blossom Peel-Off Gel Mask #FreemanBeauty #FeelingBeautiful #FreemanBeauties #BrighteningPeelOffMask #GreenTeaandOrangeBlossom #Mask

(product photo courtesy of www.freemanbeauty.com)

6 fl.oz./175mL $4.29

Sometimes you need to brighten up your skin. Maybe you have some sun damage from years of being out in the sun getting suntanned or sunburned (what is called photoaging) or you have some melasma from being pregnant or maybe you just have some hyperpigmentation called  liver spots and solar lentigines (age spots). In this case, you need the right ingredients and a super mask that is going to help brighten up the skin quickly to minimize the appearance of the hyperpigmentation. 

Freeman Beauty Feeling Beautiful Brightening Green Tea + Orange Blossom Peel-Off Gel Mask is just the mask for the job too! Full of anti-oxidants , this rejuvenating peel-off mask contains Green Tea, Orange Blossom and Vitamin C to help minimize appearance of hyperpigmentation, it brightens skin, evens out skin tone and also refines pores.

Review: Freeman Beauty Beauty Infusion Cleansing Sheet Mask #FreemanBeauty #BeautyInfusion #FreemanBeauties #CleansingSheetMask #Mask

(product photo courtesy of www.freemanbeauty.com)



If your skin is congested (full of blackheads, whiteheads or acne) or in need of some serious cleaning out, then I have the perfect sheet mask for you. Sometimes our pores (hair follicles) just get filled up with sebum and dead skin cells and we end up neglecting our skin because we get too busy. I am of the belief that you should never be too busy to care for your skin. Look at me, I am 47 and my skin looks like it is in its 20's!

The Freeman Beauty Beauty Infusion Cleansing Sheet Mask will help get rid of the congestion and purify your skin with activated charcoal and probiotics. With this mask discover a deep, pure clean. This concentrated serum-infused sheet mask made from 100 % bamboo instantly clears pores with activated charcoal that gently draws out sebum and toxins without over-drying. Boosted with powerful skin balancing-probiotics to reveal a fresh, clear complexion. This mask is perfect for all skin types, even the driest of skins. Activated charcoal is wonderful for blackheads, whiteheads and any sort of acne lesions. It is also good for helping to cut back on oily skin. Probiotics help the skin to restore its pH level, prevent new lesions from forming, can actually help moisturize and hydrate the skin as well as exfoliate the skin. 

To use the mask, cleanse the skin and remove any makeup. Take the mask out of the package, carefully unfold and place the sheet on the face. Keep the eyes and the mouth free. Smooth and arrange the mask to ensure the foreheads, cheeks, nose and chine are covered. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Remove the mask. Let the skin absorb the maximum benefits from the excess serum by patting it into the skin. Do not rinse off. Use twice a week for best results or as often as needed. Discontinue use if redness or irritation occurs. 

I feel this is a great mask for the summer months, or if you have oily skin any time of the year. During the summer sebum production has increased on our skin and we often need to readjust our skincare routines to compensate for the increase in sebum. Using this serum-infused mask you can take one step out by using a mask and serum in one step. It helps to clear pores, get rid of dead skin cells and clarify the skin in just a few minutes. All skin types could use this mask but I would really recommend it for those with combination, oily or acneic skins.  

The Freeman Beauty Beauty Infusion Cleansing Sheet Mask can be found online at www.ulta.comwww.sallybeauty.com and in Ulta Beauty stores, Nordstrom Rack, Sally Beauty Supply, Harmon and Safeway. Like Freeman Beauty on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/freemanbeauty and Follow Freeman Beauty on Instagram: https://instagram.com/freemanbeauty.

0.84 fl.oz./25mL $1.65
Sometimes you need a mask that does a little something different than just brighten. There are times when you need a Purifying Sheet Mask like the one made with Sea Kelp + Probiotics. With this mask you can have a sea goddess glow in an instant. This concentrated serum-infused sheet mask with Sea Kelp helps to renew, hydrate and clarify skin. An innovative purifying formula boosted with Probiotics to balance the skin's ecosystem helps to prevent breakouts and gives you that fresh just-out-of-the-ocean feel. This mask is perfect for all skin types. 

To use: Cleanse skin and remove all makeup. Take the mask out of the package, carefully unfold and place the sheet on the face, keeping the eyes and the mouth free. Smooth and arrange to make sure that the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin are covered. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Remove the mask. Let the skin absorb and receive maximum benefits from the excess serum by putting it into the skin. No need to to rinse. Use twice a week or as often as needed for best results. Discontinue use if redness or irritation occurs. 

The great thing about this mask it that it ads a glow to the skin. Not only does it get rid of impurities in the skin, it actually makes it glow some. I love it. I love how it makes my skin feel after using it. The probiotics help to prevent future breakouts in the skin, which is wonderful. Many companies are now using them in their skincare products because they have found them to be quite useful at preventing and treating acneic skin. Although all skin types can use this, I would really recommend this for combination, oily and acneic skin types.

0.84 fl.oz./25mL $1.65
Another way to use masks, besides leaving them on overnight, is to use the now ever-popular sheet mask. These have become so popular, thanks to their use in Korea, that they have begun to sweep the United States within almost every brand. I love a good sheet mask because you can apply the mask, sit back and relax for about 30 minutes, maybe take a short nap and then voilĂ : gorgeous skin. Freeman Beauty makes a number of sheet masks that are great. I was able to try a few out and will be reviewing them. 

This mask is very similar to the mask I reviewed the other day, the Brightening Overnight Mask, except that it is in sheet form (http://bit.ly/2s6HEl3)Easy-to-use serum-infused facial sheet masks with natural botanicals, powerful beauty boosters: Peptides, Collagen, Probiotics and Vitamin C to deliver youthful, radiant skin. Perfect for skin care on-the-go.  

The Freeman Beauty Beauty Infusion Brightening Sheet Mask is boosted with concentrated Vitamin C to help minimize dark spots and correct hyperpigmentation; Hibiscus instantly brightens skin, quenches thirsty skin and improves skin tone. It instantly boosts luminosity. This lightweight serum-infused water-gel sheet mask is easy to use. Perfect for all skin types. Contains no parabens and no sulfates. Apply to clean skin, make sure all makeup is removed. Take the mask out of the package, carefully unfold and place the sheet on the face. Make sure to keep the eyes and mouth free. Smooth and arrange mask to ensure the forehead, cheeks, nose and chin are covered. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and remove the mask, Let the skin absorb and receive the maximum benefits from the excess serum by patting it into the skin. No need to rinse. Use twice a week or as often as needed for for best results. If any irritation or redness occurs, discontinue use.  

Here is a photo of me wearing the mask:

I love this mask. I was amazed at how much hyperpigmentation was lightened in just one application. And my skin looked and felt much more luminous and brighter. It had a more even tone and was more beautiful looking. It felt soft and was more hydrated. This mask is perfect for all skin types, even acneic skin. Because it is a sheet mask it is not going to bother any of the acne lesions anyone has so, I would definitely recommend it for acneic skins too. 

Here is how my skin loks after the mask:

Review: Freeman Beauty Feeling Beautiful Glacier Water + Pink Peony Gel Cream Mask #FreemanBeauty #FeelingBeautiful #FreemanBeauties #GlacierWaterPinkPeony #GelCreamMask #Mask

(product photo courtesy of www.freemanbeauty.com)


0.5 fl.oz./15mL $1.99
Masks are such an essential part of the skincare regimen. They help to hydrate skin, purge skin of impurities and can also brighten skin and even out skin tone. It is a matter of picking out the right mask for the right job that is the hardest part. Freeman Beauty has made that very easy. Their website has everything organized depending on what kind of result you are looking for and you can even lok up masks you have used in the past. 

As with the review I did on the overnight leave-on Freeman Beauty Beauty Infusion Brightening Overnight Mask (https://bit.ly/2II59fp), the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Glacier Water + Pink Peony Gel Cream Mask can also either be left on for a few minutes (10-15) or left on overnight for an even better result. This mask contains a combination of refreshing glacier water that replenishes dry skin while soothing Pink Peony (the "queen of flowers") delicately calms skin to help makes it petal soft. This mask is perfect for all skin types and can even be used by those with acneic skin that has en dried out by skin regimens. This mask does not need to be rinsed off, as it soaks into the skin, leaving it feeling soft, soothed and beautiful. This mask is supposed to help protect skin from pollution, as it calms skin and instantly softens and makes it glow. Protect it from environmental pollutants with this lightweight, leave-on gel cream mask that is so refreshing, calming and soothing to the skin. Indulge in radiance day or night, without the need to rinse.  

Watch the following YouTube video discussing the Glacier Water + Pink Peony Gel Cream Mask:


Personally, I love this mask. It made my skin feel incredibly soft, soothed and calmed. I used it overnight, as I love to use masks overnight instead of just wiping them off if I have the choice. I feel you get better results that way. This mask is amazing. Skin is left refreshed, soft, so much better and you feel like a new woman in the morning. At night our skin rejuvenates itself which makes it the perfect time to use a mask like this, because it soaks into the skin and all of the ingredients that are in the mask actually soak into the skin too, helping to heal the skin from free radicals and environmental pollution that we encounter daily. 

The Freeman Feeling Beautiful Glacier Water + Pink Peony Gel Cream Mask retails for $1.99 per pouch or it comes in a 6 fl.oz./175mL tube too. This product is available online at www.ulta.com or www.sallybeauty.com. It is also available in Ulta Beauty stores, Sally Beauty Supply and WalMart stores. Like Freeman Beauty on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/freemanbeauty and Follow Freeman Beauty on Instagram: https://instagram.com/freemanbeauty.
