My current routine revolves around a few Project E Beauty products, namely, their face wash, toner, moisturizer, and cleansing brush, and here is my honest impression about all of them.
The products generally focus on mild ingredients, plant and fruit extracts, and gentle formulas that suit all skin types, easily reactive included. All Project E Beauty products work great for me; they don’t irritate my skin nor make me breakout but leave my skin clear, nourished, and glowy — as I want it. Worth mentioning that all skincare products by Project E Beauty that are currently in my routine have recyclable packaging (mainly glass and recyclable plastic) and are cruelty-free, which aligns with my principles.
Project E Beauty Enrich Foaming Wash
I initiate my routine with Project E Beauty Enrich Foaming Wash, which genuinely works for me. My skin is oily, so I always favor foaming cleansers as they are better at removing excess oil, grime, and residues. The cleanser is water-based and features SLS, a surfactant responsible for creating a rich lather that cleanses deeply. Additionally, the formula boasts Cocamidopropyl betaine — a hard-to-read ingredient that is nothing else but coconut-derived synthetic fatty acid, which is hydrating and softening. It acts like a surfactant that bonds with dirt, oil, and other impurities, removing them from the skin in no time. I like that it also features glycerin, a humectant that doesn’t allow my skin to get dry. In a nutshell, this cleanser is ideal as it removes makeup, junk, and debris, without stripping away the skin of moisture. The only thing I don’t like about this product is the strong scent, which is a bit too much for me; other than that, it is a great face wash.
Project E Beauty Hydrating Facial Toner
I enjoy this toner because it leaves my skin quenched and infuses it with hydration — exactly what I need to balance my sebum production. It packs two of the most potent humectants out there, glycerin and sodium hyaluronate, for instant and long-term hydration. Additionally, the formula boasts butylene glycol, which is an alcohol derived from petroleum that also acts as a humectant, increasing water levels and preventing dehydration. I like that it contains allantoin, a plant extract that aims to moisturize and soothe, while hydrogenated castor oil moisturizes some more for soft skin. Overall, it’s an excellent toner, and the glass bottle is not only infinitely recyclable, but it looks fancy too.
Project E Beauty Nourishing Facial Moisturizer
My skin really likes this moisturizer. First of all, the texture is lightweight, without feeling heavy at all, and ideal for hot summer days. Secondly, the formula contains moisture trapping ingredients and a blend of botanical extracts that reveal luminous and plump skin. Glycerin pulls water into the skin, squalane traps moisture, while Ethylhexyl palmitate (emollient) relieves dryness and reduces moisture loss from the top skin layer. This moisturizer also packs Portulaca oleracea extract, a nature-derived anti-ager that acts as an antioxidant and skin softener. Lastly, the slew of fruit and plant extracts give the moisturizer strengthening, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, humectant, softening, and energizing benefits while being gentle and suitable for all skin types.
Waterproof Silicon Deep Cleansing Exfoliating Brush
This cleansing brush saved my skin after sauna sessions. What I liked is that the silicone brush is dual-sided, one for gentle daily cleansing, and a surface for weekly exfoliation, both working delicately without causing redness or irritation. Moreover, it has an adjustable intensity, so you can pick the level you’re comfortable with. Bonus points because the brush is waterproof and travel-friendly, plus it is effortless and relaxing to use. It’s a bit difficult reaching the bridge of the nose, but other than that, it’s great. The brush may not unclog stubborn blackheads, but it’s excellent at removing makeup, massaging the skin, boosting blood flow to increase product absorption, and leaving the skin baby soft.
