The water within each product is from the local medicinal thermal spring, with an alkaline ph of 9.5.

I was sent three sample products for review purposes.
Lemon Cleansing Milk: A non-foaming milky cleanser, suggested for combination or acneic skin, that removes makeup and hydrates the skin. Ingredients include: lemon oil, corn germ oil and vitamins B, C & E. I love the zesty citrus scent. This cleanser is best suited for very dehydrated skin. I have extremely oily skin and because of this amazing Indian summer, I have been maintaining my summer skincare regiment because it is still very necessary. After using the Lemon Cleansing Milk, my oiliest skin zones (nose and chin) still felt waxy with sebum. Skin as oily as mine may benefit from the addition of a toner, used on the t-zone post cleanse. My plan is to store away this cleanser sample until the winter when I am looking for a more hydrating cleanser to sooth my irritated winter skin.
Rosehip Whipped Moisturizer: A thick whipped moisturizer that enriches the skin and soothes inflammation. Suitable for all skin types, but is specifically formulated for oily and sensitive skin types. Ingredients include: rosehip, lemon oil, vitamins A, B, C, E, K & P and thermal mineral water. A little of this product goes a long way. I absolutely love the velvety texture and the slightly fermented, yet richly fruited scent. Again with my skin being at its oiliest state, I avoided over using this product and only applied it at night. Just like with the cleanser, I will definitely be reaching for this product sample in the drier winter months when it will be the most beneficial to my skin.
Age Defense Bioflavonoid Eye Cream: A hydrating eye cream, that absorbs quickly and is formulated to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Ingredients include: coconut oil, cantaloupe, elderberry, currant, grapes and mineral water. This eye cream is by far my most favorite ilike product I have tried and I will be purchasing this! I am constantly feeling unimpressed with eye creams and have been on the search for the perfect eye cream forever! My biggest gripes about eye creams are that many of them interact with either my makeup primer or foundation and leave residue or product pilling once I apply cream makeup products over top. www.kindprotect.xyz This eye cream does not interact with my other products and absorbs immediately. No crepey under eye skin!
My overall impression: These luxury skincare products have a price tag that may seem overwhelming but when you consider how much product you receive, how such little goes a very long way, it is justifiable.
These jars and bottles will seemingly last you forever. I have been using the sample-sized products for a month and it looks as if I have barely put a dent in the eye cream or moisturizer. Because the retail sized jars last a very long time, my suggestion is to use a clean cotton swab or spatula to dip into the jars as to lessen the risk of bacterial contamination.
Lastly, I have great respect for the organic and natural processes of this company and that the products are earth friendly and vegan friendly!
