Mad Hippie Skincare Review + Giveaway!

 

In recent years natural skincare has become more popular, not only because it is better for your skin, but also because it usually means it is vegan! I recently came across a company called Mad Hippie, that I was initially drawn to because I enjoy how their product packaging looks. They offer a number of different products which address a number of skin issues, plus they have a makeup line which is wonderful for those who are allergic to some of the harsh chemicals in other makeup. For my review the Mad Hippie representative I am working with asked me to provided her with some of my skincare concerns and then sent me a few products based off of that. In total I received three skincare products and three makeup products along with some sample packets, which I will use for a giveaway at the bottom of this post. 

In total for my review I received three skincare products and three makeup products, plus some sample sizes of their other products and a reusable bag. Everything was packaged so nicely, the tissue paper matched their product packaging and inside of each skincare product is a sample of a different skincare product as a bonus gift. I will go over a little information about the product, and how my experience has been with it thus far. 

Vitamin C Serum (Retail $39.99) - The main four ingredients in this serum are vitamin C (of course), vitamin E, Ferulic Acid and Konjac Root. This serum helps rejuvenate skin while providing a more even/bright skin tone while also offering antioxidant support. It has a mild floral scent that isn't overwhelming and just a few drops spreads out evenly covering a lot of space. I've been using this on part of my face that gets irritated from where my mask sits and on a tattoo that I have on my leg to see if it helps bring the colors out again. I have noticed that it has been helping my skin look better in the areas I've been using it, the tattoo I have been using it on has been looking slightly richer in color because my skin isn't so dry and is getting an extra boost from the ingredients in this. 

Exfoliating Serum (Retail $34.99) - The main ingredients in the exfoliating serum are apple stem cells, gigawhite, lactic acid and glycolic acid to help smooth and brighten your skin and helping with discoloration. When I first opened this I thought it would be more of a cleansing face wash, however it isn't, it is actually a serum they suggest to use in the evening following your normal skincare routine. This one I haven't used as much as the other two, it smells lovely however I have another nighttime product I need to finish using before I continue using this and my face isn't quite used to using products with acids in them so it causes a slight burning sensation. 

Cleansing Oil (Retail $17.99) - This product features organic pumpkin seed oil, organic rosehip oil, ginger and organic sunflower oil. I think that this smells like watermelon, I checked the ingredients list and it does say it has fruit oil however I am not sure if that is what provides it with its scent. Using this is interesting, I've never used a cleaning oil before this. It is slightly thick, but covers your entire face with two pumps of the bottle, after applying it is best to place a warm washcloth over your face until it cools down to remove it and gently wipe your face off with it after. I highly suggest following the directions on the bottle for the best results, since it is an oil it won't rinse off with just water. The hand towel helps absorb a little of it along with wiping your face off after, otherwise your face might be a little too oily for your liking. It leaves my skin feeling clean, cool and soft to the touch after using it, acne wise I can't say I've notice a difference as I have always had a bit of issues with tiny black heads on my nose and haven't noticed an improvement after using this. 

Mascara (Retail $19) - This formula is created to be non-flaking, smooth finishing and buildable with lash-lengthening peptides. This is a little thinner than other mascaras I've tried formula wise so it helps prevent your eyelashes from becoming clumpy, and the brush provided is nice it holds just the right amount and helps spread your eyelashes while applying a coat of mascara. I have decently long eyelashes as is, so I don't see a huge different in lash length when using this, however it does help make them slightly darker while giving a natural look, and yes it does build up well. It applies evenly, and quickly it is perfect for when you are in a hurry before work or going out. At the end of the night it washes off without any issues or black smudges that you have to re-clean off.

Eye Pencil (Retail $15) - First I want to say the pencil is so neat, it is made from bamboo and it oddly smells good. The pencils are mineral pigment based, with no synthetic dyes or waxes. I was able to test out the colors Black and Burnt Gold, both of which are highly pigmented and apply softly, smoothly and evenly. The burnt gold is nice if you blend it out a little otherwise it looks like a brown. I like wearing just a little of it when I head into work, I wake up pretty early so I don't do all of my makeup, but sometimes it is nice just to thrown on a little liner and mascara. 

Overall I am enjoying these products, I might end up passing the exfoliating serum onto a friend whom I know will use it just so it isn't sitting on my shelf until I am ready to use it. Along with their products the packaging is also vegan and ecofriendly, made from sustainable materials, plus how cute are the designs printed on the packaging? I am also loving the reusable bag they sent with everything, I try to use reusable bags as often as I can at the store to help reduce the amount of plastic waste coming into my home.
