MTTO Charcoal Detox Cleanser | MTTO Organic Lemon Toner

Michael Todd True Organics Charcoal Detox deep pore gel cleanser

Claims: Completely removes dirt, oil, makeup and other impurities without stripping skin’s natural moisture. Activated Charcoal is highly absorbent to penetrate deeply into pores and gently draw out impurities leaving skin feeling clean, soft, smooth and refreshed. Indicated in the treatment of acne and problem skin. Rinses thoroughly without residue.   

This cleanser is really nice, it does exactly as it says. I use this mainly in the evenings or whenever I remove my makeup and it really does provide a deep cleanse. (I still remove my makeup separately before cleansing.) My skin feels squeaky clean and soft! Its left without that tight dry feeling that one can have with other 'deep cleansers' that really just leave the skin feeling stripped and sensitive. 

I truly believe this cleanser aids in helping prevent acne, so if you are a acne sufferer and find that most cleansers for acne are too harsh and drying this might the cleanser for you. 

Price: $ 24.00
Repurchase? Yes!

Organic Lemon Toner AHA + DMAE toner 

Claims: A refreshing toner with the aroma of fresh lemons. Blended with DMAE and Alpha Hydroxy Acid to firm, lift and tighten the skin while easing away the appearance of fine lines, blotches and discolorations for more vibrant, even-toned radiant looking skin. Maintains the skin’s proper pH without the drying effects of alcohol. Prepares skin for serums and moisturizers.

A few years ago my neck seemed to darken several shades darker than my skin color seemingly overnight and for no reason. I was completely freaked out and my mother took me to a dermatologist immediately but all I got was a shrug and a prescription for tretinoin cream. Tretinoin is great it helps fade acne scars but it did nothing for my neck. Ultimately I just kind of gave up that anything would help correct the intense 
discoloration on my neck. But when it came to my skin care whatever I do to my face I do to my neck. So when I started using this toner I took it down my neck and believe or not it actually started lightening my neck! It's a skincare miracle. Honestly I wish I would have had the forethought to take a before picture but I wasn't expecting any kind of change to my neck.This toner is absolutely amazing. It helps breakouts heal fast and I've definitely noticed that the hyperpigmentation left after a break out  is 

I would recommend this to everyone to help with achieving and keeping an even skin tone.

Price: $ 18.00
Repurchase? Absolutely.

On the back it says that it can even be used on elbows, knees, face and lips! 

On the back of the box it explains the origins of this hand cream. It came from Norwegian fishermen! Whom hands were getting such a beating from their hard work in the harsh elements the fishermen developed a glycerin rich cream to survive even through the storms.

What is glycerin? You probably can check most of your beauty products especially the lotions and locate it somewhere in the ingredients lists. Glycerin protects the skin and creates a protective barrier and it also prevents drying and reduces itching.

My hands: I wash my hands A LOT  and because of that my hands are always feeling dry and much rougher than they should. I was forever trying to find a hand cream. The number one problem that I kept running into was that while the creams felt moisturizing when I applied them they didn't provide any lasting hydration to my hands. With the cold winter weather my hands were feeling even more dry then usual. My hands are definitely in need of some rescuing!
As pictured above I have some some samples and I shared this my mom and she loves it as well! 

Claims that just one dab repairs 7 signs of damage: dryness, chapping, splitting nails, dry cuticles, scaliness and roughness.

Would be amazing for nail enthusiast that find themselves always updating their manicures.

Texture: When it comes out it's a cloudy opacity and when you initially start to blend it kind of remind me of petroleum jelly in its emollient texture but it turns white as common in many lotions. It's super smooth.

Hands: So far so good as far as I'm concerned, my hands feel SO much softer than before already and has lasted through out the day even with multiple hand washing. I'm really impressed. 

Lips: I'm surprisingly enjoying this on my lips. Unlike many lip balms this doesn't leave a residue on my lips and has no kind of shine. It simply absorbs into my lips, makes them super soft and leaves them the perfect canvas for lip colors.

This can be purchased right from the Neutrogena website for 3.99  here.
