For the last few years, I have focused solely on skincare to get my acne prone skin back to the normal skin I once had. Since I was 14, I had pretty horrible acne that I soon realized was cystic acne. I would get these huge boil-like bumps on my face that took weeks to go away. It didn’t matter if I popped the bumps or let them disappear on their own, they would always leave an ugly acne scar.
Now, at 23, I know that much of my acne stemmed from my diet and my intolerance to dairy. My clean eating and dairy moderation has most definitely improved my cystic acne, but left behind the more regular type of pimples.
I’ve been through many skincare lines that worked, but didn’t really get the job done. Some of the lines I tried throughout the years were Clinque, Philosophy, Cetaphil – pretty much every line that wasn’t Proactiv. The one line that worked and kept pimples at a minimum was Lush. I absolutely adore Lush and will always continue to use their products. While I love Lush, I needed something more that keeps the pimples away and makes me want to truly love my skin.
I then discovered Leahlani products thanks to my dear mother. Leahlani products are infused with all natural, organic, straight from the Hawaiian island ingredients. Leah of Leahlani uses cold pressed oils, tropical fruits, botanicals, clays and Hawaiian nectars to create this amazing blend of skincare products.
The products that I have been using these last few weeks (again thanks to my mom) are Honey Love and Champagne Serum. The third day of using Honey Love followed by Champagne Serum, my skin did the unthinkable and cleared completely. Also my skin glowed…makeupless. This was something that hasn’t happened since I was 18 when I thought I was done with puberty (second puberty is a thing you guys!)
Honey Love 3-in-1 is a cleanser, exfoliator and mask that clarifies and evens out the skin tone. This is the first cleanser that doesn’t completely strip all of my natural oils or leave a residue on my skin. It is the perfect happy medium for my sensitive and combination skin. The best thing about Honey Love is that you only need a little bit for it to work.
After A week
Champagne Serum is kind of a misleading name because it is actually a combination of oils. Upon first use, I was expecting the sticky consistency that most serums come with, but instead got the oil based consistency that felt like melted butter. Usually I follow up my cleansers with a moisturizer and an acne spot treatment, but I no longer feel the need for the spot treatment.
The packaging from Leahlani is all eco-friendly containing all cardboard and paper, NO plastic whatsoever. The containers the products come in are glass and are wrapped in corrugated cardboard. This was a plus to me because I am trying to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. The purchase also came with a sample of one of Leahlani’s many masks – which of course I had to give a try.
I don’t really have any cons for these products because they are really just that good. They are affordable and all natural. Leahlani products are aesthetically pleasing and smell quite amazing. I think that this line of skincare is my holy grail for life…or at least a long while.
I plan on purchasing the Kokoleka Mask and another mask in their line in the near future. I definitely plan on repurchasing Honey Love 3-in-1 again and again and again. I am most undoubtedly obsessed.
I am glad that I can finally say, Goodbye forever cystic acne and au revoir reoccurring pesky pimples.
