Mia Mariu Review

About 2 weeks ago, Debra from Mia Mariu, a skin care line, emailed me to do a review.  I have to admit, doing skin care reviews aren't my favorite thing to do because I have found something that really works for me and I love it.  I don't really like changing things up very much.  Not to mention that my skin is super sensitive to certain things including moisturizers. But since I seem to ALWAYS have dark circles under my eyes and LOTS of puffiness, I was intrigued when they offered a serum to help that.

This is what they sent me:
And the product description from the email:
The Rejuvenate Your Skin Anti-Aging Pack contains a Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser, an Anti-Aging Brightening Serum and an Anti-Aging Eye Treatment. The Refreshing Foaming Cleanser’s silky formula will leave your skin soft, hydrated and refreshed. Sea Kelp and Aloe makes this a fabulous super-gentle cleanser for all skin types. Our Anti-Aging Brightening Serum is a must-have age-defying serum that targets sun spots and pigmentation while brightening overall clarity. This serum contains anti-aging peptides, skin-brightening botanicals, Aloe and Vitamin B5 Complex. The Anti-Aging Eye Treatment is a lightweight formula that quickly absorbs into the skin, instantly awakening tired-looking eyes. The Eye Treatment contains antioxidants like Japanese Green Tea, Aloe and Vitamins B5 & E to help reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eyes.

Since my skin was doing really well on it's own, I decided to give the foam cleaner to my sister, who has some acne issues, and I would try out the moisturizer and the eye stuff.  I know, I know, I probably won't benefit from the FULL experience without using them all together, but I thought that if the foam cleanser helped my sister it would make for a better review.

As for me, the moisturizer is great.  It didn't break me out and that's saying something.  But I have to admit, the eye serum was my favorite, and I will show you why.  Here are some before and after pictures.  Notice under my eyes:

Last week
It has been really nice to find something that not only works for my under-eye region, but that works so quickly!  I get sick of hearing, "oh, this will work... but you have to give it 3 months... or more..."  I don't have the patience to use something every day for 3 months that doesn't seem to be working.  Forget that!  So I liked this stuff.

This is what my sister, Amy had to say about the facial soap:
I was staying with my sister Cat for a few days this Summer and she gave me this facial soap to test out. I thought, why not? I can always use new facial soap. I usually have to switch brands off and on because my skin is just weird. I have acne breakouts constantly...I hoped I would be over that since puberty.. guess I was wrong.. very wrong. So anyway, I started using this new soap and I LOVE it. My face stayed clear for a couple of weeks. It was so nice. I love how it foams up, I can tell where it is on my face, and what I haven't washed off yet! I am still using it, and am enjoying it. My face feels so nice after washing it. So, thanks Cat for letting me try it out, it has been amazing!
 So pop by and check out their stuff!! Website here!  Facebook here!
