Saffron Rouge- Dr. Alkaitis Face Products #Review

Dr. Alkaitis Organic Purifying Facial Cleanser

This is a very gentle cleanser and is 100% pure and organic. It’s an amber colored cleanser that does foam up very nicely and has a nice consistency. It smells VERY clean and has a light scent that smells amazing.

It didn’t strip my face of it’s natural oils and a little tiny bit cleaned my entire face. I have had really large pores (always have) but this seemed to shrink them a bit, which I liked).

My skin was so soft afterwards and seemed extremely healthy. It doesn’t have chemicals in it, which is AWESOME. I only received a small bottle of this and STILL have some of it left. I can use a tiny amount and it works VERY well.

Dr. Alkaitis Organic Herbal Toner

Dr. Alkaitis Organic Herbal Toner

Organic Herbal Toner is a wonderful multi-purpose product that operates as toner, astringent, an anti-inflammatory , and a skin balancer. It also helps sooth and treat burns.  Does not dry out the skin like other toners and can be used as a moisturizer for oily complexions. Awesome for after sun care.

I have oily skin on my nose and jawline but dry skin on my forehead and cheeks and have tried many toners that didn’t work well. This toner clarifies while not making dry patches on my cheeks and forehead, and takes the oil away from my nose and jaw.

This toner smells like a mixture of lavender and wildflowers, although it isn’t strong and overpowering. My skin is very balanced and healthy looking because of this.

I am sold on this toner. It hydrates while refreshing my skin. Leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and it smells great as well.

Dr. Alkaitis Day Crème

This is certainly perfection in a tiny tube! This is a lightweight crème that absorbs immediately and glides on with no trace of greasiness or oiliness. This barely has a smell, but it DOES smell lightly herbal with a sweet side.

It has a soothing effect when applied, and has cured my face of the random stand alone zits I get a couple of times a month. I use mineral foundation powder over this, and my face always looks glowing and healthy. The makeup never cakes up, dries up, gets too oily, or rubs off.

It claimed to adapt to different skin types, so I let my mom use it as well. Where I have oily acne prone skin- she has dry skin that peels. This DID help her face stay moisturized, yet not oily. She liked it. SO—it DID adapt to both of our skin types, just as it claimed it would.

Although I was only sent a small tube, it has lasted me for quite a while. A pea size amount of this can be used for my entire face and neck. I love this because it is also completely natural. My skin is glowing and my pores haven’t clogged up once since I’ve been using this!

 

Dr. Alkaitis Organic Night Crème

Dr. Alkaitis Night Crème

This is richer than the day crème, but blends in very well to not leave an oily residue. My skin immediately begins to feel hydrated and smooth. It never caused any irritations or breakouts. My pillow case never had any greasy marks left from it.

It blends really well into my skin where I can’t even tell I have a thicker moisturizer on. I would love to use this in the colder months, it feels like my face is just drinking this in!! It’s basically a whipped like texture and is very calming.

If you have oily/ acne prone skin like I do, it’s hard to find a night crème that doesn’t add to the breakouts. Other night cremes were just too greasy for me and ended up making my pores clogged and causing acne..

Not this one. It is 100% natural and smells AMAZING!

All of these products are organic and natural. They smell amazing and work that way too. I’ve never found an ENTIRE line of cleansers, toners, and hydrators that ALL worked well. I could maybe find one from this one, one from that one.. but this whole line is amazing.

It may be pricey, but it’s absolutely worth it. WHY? Because it LASTS so long AND gives results within the first couple of days. Why would you want to spend very little and see no results? I wouldn’t. I would rather see the results then be using something for absolutely no reason at all.!
