Powered by Mom brings you a Basq Beauty Products Review
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years as a Mom it’s that the role is nothing to sneeze at. When I became pregnant for the first time I remember thinking that it would be a breeze, being a parent. I’d watched countless family members and friends take on the Motherly role and figured that if they could do it so easily then why couldn’t I? Well, as easy as some women make it out to be it was no surprise that I felt that way..unfortunately for me I was never told about the downsides of parenthood; sleepless nights, stained clothing, the endless exasperation. I was in no way prepared for the tired look my face would permanently adapt nor was I prepared for all of the ups and downs of motherhood that weren’t included in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” or “What to Expect in the First Years” series.
When I was given the opportunity to work with Basq to review their beauty products I couldn’t believe my good fortune. With the finest quality ingredients going into their skin care products, Basq was exactly what I needed to start feeling like myself again after so long in the Mommy trenches. Unlike a lot of beauty and skin products on the market today, Basq has taken the guess work out of their ingredients list so you can be 100% sure you’re getting only the best quality with none of the questionable ingredients. Not only do they offer the highest quality ingredients but they’re also located right here in the US and are NEVER tested on animals! That last part is extremely important to me as I will not knowingly buy, use or promote products that are tested on animals ever.
I was sent the Cucumber Tea Eye Gel, Fragrance Free Illipe Body Butter, and their limited edition “It’s a Small World” by Basq Dream Lavender Sleep Mist for my review. It all came in such a lovely bag as you can see in the pictures. This would make for a great gift to anyone but I kept this one for myself!
The Cucumber Tea Eye Gel does wonders for those of us who experience occasional or frequent cases of the puffy eyes in the mornings. Using a combination of Green Tea and Cucumber, both being known for their healing properties, the Cucumber Tea Eye Gel is also an excellent way to fill in fine lines and soothe tired eyes with a cooling sensation. The eye gel as you can see is quite clear with just a tint of green. It’s refreshing to put on your eyes, it gives the skin a pick me up kind of feeling and look. I put it on at night but if you do put it on during the day give plenty of time for it to absorb before applying any make-up.
The Fragrance Free Illipe Body Butter is an ultra rich blend of nutrients and moisturizers that is a great way to treat your dry, sensitive and itchy skin. Imagine the relief you’ll get on those spots that are a constant source of dryness and itchiness. Don’t be fooled by the super thick texture of this one, folks, it’s this nutrient packed butter will absorb into your skin effortlessly and without leaving any greasy residue. While I love scented items it’s always good to have an option for those who are sensitive to scents and whose skin may react to it. The body butter is amazing for giving
The Lavender Mist is one of my favorites if only for it’s helpful slumber inducing properties. We use lavender quite often in my home but nothing comes close to ranking as a favorite as this sleep mist by Basq. Boasting both healing and air freshening properties, the Lavender Mist Sleep Spray does wonders for those wanting to get a good nights sleep, freshen up a room for their family members or guests. The real beauty of the mist though is that through good sleep attained by using the mist you’re also doing your skin a favor: a good nights sleep does wonders in bringing out the natural glow of ones skin as well as helps in other area’s of your body as well; you’re skin, memory and creativity all benefit from the use of lavender!
The Lavender Mist doesn’t have to be just for moms and babies, my 13 year old daughter loves the scent, this one is not overpowering, it’s more subtle than some I’ve had which I like. I can definitely smell it in the room and it makes me go ahhhh time to relax, love it!
