Let’s be honest here – most guys are not too much into skincare. And my boyfriend is not any different. But when I told him he could test the Marina Miracle range for men, he was up for it right away. Probably because he had heard me rave about her products for weeks.
And guess what: Suddenly I saw him coming out of the bathroom with a big smile every day, proudly patting his face. And here is what he thought about the products. (Oh yes, Marina Miracle does work miracle for men as well!)
The Marina Miracle for men daytime 100% Natural Active Face Oil gives you a refreshing feeling for the day ahead and leaves you feeling energized. It keeps your skin moisturized all day without feeling oily as it soaks in very quickly.
The Marina Miracle for men night time 100% Natural Reload Night Serum has a soothing fragrance which will give you a good night’s sleep and it is just as mousturizing. It leaves the skin feeling really soft.
As many of you know already, I have been a big fan of Marina Miracle ever since I bought her face oil. After getting the opportunity to test her other products, I can assure you they are just as miraculous!
So this is how it all started: The Herbal Face Oil made my skin glow after only two days of using it and I was hooked. It is (like all Marina Miracle products) 100% natural, suits all skintypes and has anti-aging features. I use it every morning and evening before applying my moisturizer and sometimes, when I’m in a hurry, even mix it with my moisturizer which works just as well. The skin doesn’t feel greasy after using it but simply soft. Especially in winter I find it tricky to find the right skincare for me as my skin tends to get dry but products that are too rich make me break out. So I was more than happy to see that Marina Miracle’s Face Oil is just the right amount of moisturizing and makes occasional spots fade even faster.
Now let’s take a look at my new products. The Argan Night Serum with AHA is exfoliating, moisturizes the skin and promises to tighten the skin. So I guess I’m too young to say anything about the tightening effect but I can definitely say that my skin looks more radiant and pores are less visible, probaly due to the fact that this serum removes dead skin cells and renews the skin. As recommended I used it about 3 nights a week on cleansed skin. I absolutely love it!
The Eyelash Serum is the product I was probably most curious about. We all know lash growth serums but an eyelash care that you apply directly to your lashes was completely new to me. After using it every night for the last few weeks I wonder why I had never thought about eyelash care before. I use oil on my hair to make it stay shiny and grow longer, so why not do the same to your lashes? The serum promises to prevent lash loss and make lashes grow healthier and stronger with several vitamins and argan oil. A pleasent immediate effect of this serum is that lashes look more shiny and darker (which is particularly nice for us blondes). It seems that this effect lasts longer and longer now, not only right after applying it. My lashes actually appear a bit stronger and healthier and more visible even without mascara. When it comes to lash products, you usually have to wait for a few months to see the full effect as lashes stay on your eye for around 100 days before falling out and re-grow. So I will keep you updated!
Oh, and a little tip on the side: Marina also has a skin care range for men, just in case you are looking for a Christmas present for your boyfriend or husband.
1 / Marina Miracle Herbal Face Oil: Ever since I ran out of my beloved Trilogy Rosehip Oil, I was looking for a good replacement available in Norway. Marina Miracle is a Stavanger based company that produces organic skincare with highly effective ingredients. I have been using the face oil for about two weeks now and my skin feels soft and looks even. Best face oil ever!
2 / Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer: Smashbox primer really works! It smoothes out the skin texture and makes foundation last so much longer. I find it works best if you wait for ten minutes before putting your foundation on.
3 / Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Even Finish Foundation: This has been a life-saver on rainy days (and we had a lot of them recently) because this Bobbi Brown foundation is waterproof. It goes on smoothly and lasts all day. I don’t know what would happen if you jumped into a pool but in wet weather conditions it definitely stays put.
4 / Moroccanoil Treatment: I told you about this hair oil before and my opinion hasn’t changed. Although I think nothing can truly repair damaged hair, this treatment leaves your hair shinier than ever and prevents hair from splitting more. You can use it on dry or damp hair.
