Skincare Review: BeautyMint Sculpting Treatment With Peptides

The Product: BeautyMint Scultping Treatment with Peptides

The Review: And yet another BeautyMint product I'm not all that impressed with. The product is this clear, sticky-ish gel that you slather on your face. They suggest you put it on last, but it makes my face feel tacky and sticky, so I put it on before the moisturizer when I'm using it during the day. Otherwise, I use it under the Resurfacing Treatment with Retinol at night, which I'm not sure you're supposed to do, but I haven't noticed any weird side effects, so I'm going to keep doing it.

They claim this sculpting treatment "targets visible signs of aging like diminished firmness and tone", has "ingredients that help promote vibrancy," and contains "botanicals like acai and green tea that contain protective properties." I've been using this product for a month now, and I honestly don't think it does a thing. It doesn't add any moisture. I haven't seen any added "firmness" to my skin or noticed any change in my fine lines that could be blamed on this specific treatment. Really, I think it's one more gimmicky product. It hasn't hurt my skin, but it hasn't done anything beneficial either. All it does is make my face slightly sticky.

Also, what the hell is vibrancy promotion? I would really love to know. God, I hate it when businesses use ridiculous jargon to make their product sound more impressive. In my opinion, if you have to resort to those cheap sales tactics, your product probably isn't worth it. I could be sucked in by "ingredients that revitalize and rejuvenate" or "ingredients that improve skin's radiance." Throw "elasticity" in there somewhere, even. But "promote vibrancy?" BeautyMint, please. Look up words before you throw them around. "Vibrancy" is a word that connotes action, movement, energy, enthusiasm. Would you describe your skin as enthusiastic and full of energy? Um... No. But that is how I describe my boyfriend's puppy.

Ok. Rant over. Sorry about that. I'm calm now. And caffeinated, which I think is part of my problem. Anyway, long story short, after a month of using it, I have concluded that this product doesn't really do all that much for my skin. That's not saying that it won't work for yours. Maybe you will find your skin more energetic and full of movement after use, but I didn't see any change.
