Duchess Marden Skincare: 100% Vegan, 100% fab!

Duchess Marden…even the name sounds pretty. I am totally loving their all vegan products right now. Duchess Marden products are made from pure, natural plant-based elements and without using petrochemicals, parabens or chemical preservatives. Plus, no animal testing! How could I resist? Duchess Marden products are work on all skin types and have no artificial fragrances. So, even sensitive and acne-prone skin can use them.

 I was lucky enough to receive the entire line of Duchess Marden products to review. I really liked their products and would definitely recommend them to those who love vegan products.

Damascena Foaming Facial Cleanser
This cleanser does an amazing job of removing makeup and getting my skin really clean. My skin feels so soft and moisturized after each use. I really like the fact that it has rose oil which is calming and soothing to the skin (which my skin totally needs after a day of my crazy makeup :D). This cleanser is formulated to stimulate collagen production and replenishes moisture to skin—which is great for smoothing fine lines. 

Damascena Crème Facial Cleanser

Just like the foaming cleanser, this cream cleanser does an awesome job of cleaning my skin. I really liked the way this cream cleanser feels on my skin. It’s very luxurious and leaves my skin so soft, just like the foaming cleanser. I think the creamy no-foaming action would be great for those with sensitive skin too.

Hydrating Masque

I loved this mask from the second it touched my skin. It is a clear gel that with a slight very light fragrance and it smoothes on skin so nicely. It’s not heavy at all and it doesn’t crack (or hurt when you smile). After using this mask, my skin feels completely rejuvenated. It’s formulated to improve water retention and absorption and to brighten skin by reducing melanin and pigmentation too.

Enzyme Exfoliant

This exfoliant is designed to be used after cleansing just a couple times a week. I love how this product can exfoliate without drying or irritating my skin. It’s actually very calming and soothing, which is pretty much unheard of when it comes to exfoliating products. It feels like a creamy lotion with very gentle exfoliating beads. And just like all of the other products, it nourishes skin with natural powerful antioxidants. Its fab!

Face Crème

This face cream is amazing! Its made with organic Shea butter, apricot oil, cetly babassuate, and hydrolyzed oat protein, so its super-soothing and hydrating for dry skin. It also has mushroom extracts which help fade discolorations in skin. I could tell that my skin was more evenly toned after just a couple of uses. Again, I really love the light fragrance of the cream - it's very natural smelling.

Damascena Anti-Wrinkle Serum

Fab around the eyes! It hydrates, reduces puffiness, and fades dark circles. I like how this serum doesn’t leave an oily residue on the skin around my eyes. And a little bit of this serum goes a long way. So, it is well worth the price. 

Damascena Neck & Décolleté Serum

This serum is an all around makeover for the neck and chest. It stimulates collagen to firm skin and it promotes healthy cell growth to retain skin’s elasticity. Plus, it hydrates and can lighten dark spots by reducing melanin. Just like the Face Cream, I noticed a difference in my skins appearance in just a couple of uses. My skin looks more evenly toned and just healthier overall.

Body Serum

I love this body serum. It is super-hydrating with no greasy feeling. It really softens skin and has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe stressed skin. It also does a great job of minimizing bruising and skin discolorations. And, it fortifies, firms, and promotes the production of new cells.

Pure Rose Water

 I'm huge fan of facial mists. And this Pure Rose Water is definitely at the top of my faves list. Rose water is fabulous for reducing puffiness around the eyes and hydrating skin. It can also be used to improve and soothe skin conditions with its Ph-balancing and antibacterial properties. This Pure Rose Water spray feels (and smells) absolutely amazing when spray on the face, neck and chest. I am totally hooked!
