Revescent Haul + Review

Today's post is all about the company Revescent and today I'll be doing a haul and a review all in one. Revescent is a trusted online retailer of safe, toxin-free personal care products and cosmetics that are better for both your health and your beauty. I have to start off by saying a huge thank you to Rebeckah for sorting all the issues I had regarding customs etc and for sending me these lovely products. I received the *Agent Nateur N°3 Deodorant and the *Today Moisturizing Serum for Causemetics. Rebeckah also kindly sent me some samples of some other products to try out too.

So firstly I think I will talk about the *Agent Nateur no.3 deodorant holi(stick) which is organic and you get 30ml. No.3 deodorant is both holi (stick) and organic. It is handmade in Los Angeles with love and non-toxic, cruelty free ingredients that you can actually eat (although you shouldn't eat deodorant). When I first received this product I was really intrigued as I've never actually had a deodorant like it. Normally they are just roll ons and are in liquid form rather than a stick but I really loved the idea. I loved how it was organic and you got a considerable amount of product too. For 30ml this product is $11 which works out at £7.57 which is pretty expensive for a deodorant considering in the UK most deodorants are only £1. I really loved the idea behind this deodorant but unfortunately the product gave my under arms a bad reaction and so after using it for a week I had to stop as it was making my under arms so sore and inflamed. This might just be my body personally but overall I loved the concept of it, it's very travel friendly and it comes in a lovely little pouch but unfortunately this product was just no good for me.

Next I will talk about the *Today Moisturizing Serum for Causemetics by Cocoon Apothecary which is also available on Revescent. I love trying new serums and in 2015, I definitely experimented a lot more and explored the world of serums and this was definitely an interesting one. In winter especially I suffer with dry patches and so this serum is perfect for when I have dry patches as it is a moisturising serum. However, when my skin doesn't have dry patches and is combination, I tend to find that this serum is just too oily and greasy on my skin and tends to lead me to break out and so I can only really use this serum on my dry patches and when I have them. However I love that when you buy the serum $10 from the serum helps women with breast cancer to pay for their next meal. I am all for supporting people in need and so this is a lovely thought and I really love it. For me personally, this product was very hit and miss, it doesn't look like the most pleasant serum in the world and definitely doesn't smell nice but it does work on my dry patches. For 60ml, this product is $44 which is £30.30, so again it's definitely not the cheapest of products. I personally wouldn't buy this serum again because my skin doesn't always need it but I would suggest to really check this product out if you have dry to really dry skin and this will definitely moisturise it.

Then Rebeckah kindly sent me some other samples to try and I was able to try the *Ancient Mud Mask by Cocoon Apothecary, *Rosehip Oil Serum by Cocoon Apothecary and the *Honestly Phresh Phree Unscented Deodorant. None of these samples really made me go 'wow' but I did love the pots and containers they came in. The Ancient Mud Mask by Cocoon Apothecary was a little too drying for my skin and it didn't make my skin feel very nice at all and I found that this product dries up really fast too. The Rosehip Oil Serum by Cocoon Apothecary was probably the best of the samples and my skin actually really liked this product and the Honestly Phresh Phree Unscented Deodorant was again nothing really that special. I was a little cautious of using this as it is the exact same formula as the Agent Nateur one but it didn't seem to irritate my under arms.

I really enjoyed trying out new products that I would have never thought to have bought and although I didn't necessarily love them, they weren't horrible products either and as I always say, what might work for me, might not work for you and what doesn't work for me, might work for you and so really it just depends on you.

Revescent have currently got some offers on and so I thought I would share them with you. The first offer is if you purchase two 1.7 oz Agent Natuer deodorants, a free 1.1 oz size will be included and the second offer is any order $150 (£103.30) or higher will get a free Cocoon Apothecary Skincare Starter Set.

Revescent have also kindly given me a discount code for all you lovely readers which will give you 10% off on the website and all you have to do is use the code 'theperksofmeg'

Again, I would like to say a massive thank you to Rebeckah!

Have you tried Revescent before?
