Good Medicine Beauty Lab

I recently placed an order with good medicine beauty lab after seeing their products all over instagram and they had a great sale going on on their starter kits (and they're having another NOW). I ended up ordering the kit for oily skin which includes Rain deep cleansing oil, Ashes cleansing grains, Purity clear skin tonic, Honey Dew youth serum, Clarity awakening cream, and Sand red mineral polish. I got all of these at such a great price. I have used all of these products and am really loving this brand so far.

Rain deep cleansing oil: I really like this oil and I'm going through this stuff so quickly. This feels really good on my skin and I like to rub this in for about a minute or so and leave it on in the shower. It takes off all of my makeup and leaves my skin nice and deeply cleansed. I love that this includes tamanu oil, which is one of my favorite oils for acne. This also contains other oils for cleansing, clearing, and moisturizing such as sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, aloe vera oil, castor oil, and many more. Really enjoying this so far, it's a great oil cleanser.

Ashes cleansing grains: this stuff is so interesting to me. I have never seen a cleanser like this before. You add water to this and it bubbles up and turns into this "silky liquid" as they describe. This includes powdered pearls and powdered potato which is great for aging and acne. I do get the subtle smell of french fries and essential oils when rubbing it into the face haha, quite interesting. I love the way this feels when cleansing the skin and I enjoy the texture it turns into. This cleanser is not stripping at all, it feels very gentle and doesn't dry out my skin. I like using this in the morning and would rather use an oil at night. Overall a very good cleanser.

Purity clear skin tonic: I haven't exactly figured out how I like to use this yet. It is a great product but I don't like using it with a cotton pad as recommended because it soaks in. I don't feel like I get enough product on the skin and for the size of this bottle I can't justify wasting even a drop. There are such fantastic ingredients in here that are anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antiseptic. This is so great for acneic and oily skin.  I feel like this really helps with controlling my excess oil bringing it down to a minimum. Great for balancing the skin's pH.
From website:
Organic aqueous tincture of wildcrafted desert sage, wildcrafted juniper berry, wildcrafted larrea, organic dandelion and organic alfalfa. Pure extract of organic limes, organic aloe vera, vegetable glycerin. organic apple cider vinegar, citric acid, wild desert honey. Organic potato, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid (vitamin C), 50+ trace mineral sea salts, organic sugar cane, organic milk and powdered pearls. Pure Essential oils and attars of juniper berry, pine needle, cedar wood, lime, vetiver, rose geranium, lily and peppermint.
Just looking at this ingredient list makes me so happy!

Honey Dew youth serum: this stuff is awesome. I love the feeling of this product as well as the scent. I absolutely LOVE honey and all of the amazing benefits it contains for the skin. This is amazing for getting that youthful glow and the ingredients are perfect for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as fading skin discolorations and blemishes. This is perfect to use as a primer before makeup creating a perfect base and it doesn't make the skin not too oily or too dry. A few star ingredients that stand out to me are organic grapefruit, organic aloe vera, raw honey, juniper berry, frankincense, and myrrh.
From website:
As bees gather morning dew from flower petals and change it into a golden nectar fit for the gods, so we have turned the honey and precious moisture from fresh fruits, potatoes, and wild desert botanicals into a beautiful fluid for the face. Draped in this golden cloak of sweet nectar, Honey Dew brings you rays of sunshine, joy and energy.
They have such a way with words just reading this makes me want to buy it!

Clarity awakening cream: This is probably my favorite product of the bunch. I have had a little of a hard time finding a cream for my skin that it likes and I have been using a lot of oils instead. Of course I love my oils but I like to mix it up because to me there is nothing like the texture of a cream I just love it. This works great under makeup and on the website they also recommend mixing in a drop of Rain for night time for a little more nourishment, which I've tried and liked the result. This cream is so hydrating and I find my skin drinks it up. This is packed with vitamins and antioxidants that are so great for the skin. This cream includes ingredients such as calendula, aloe vera, and wild honey which are all great for healing. This does contain coconut oil and olive oil which can be comedogenic to some so I would watch out if your skin has problems with either of these ingredients.  I haven't found that this has been comedogenic for me and it hasn't caused any problems.

Sand red mineral polish: SO many good things in this...Yucca Root, tincture, calendula, lily of the valley, aloe, desert mineral sand, rosemary, raw honey...YES! I like to use this a couple of times a week. Beautiful exfoliator, not too harsh. Gives me a beautiful glow and brings down the amount of redness and irritation on my face.

I know a lot of people love the Starry Eyes eye cream. I haven't had a chance to try this yet but sounds amazing! I JUST ordered another started kit to try out a couple of other products that were missing from this one. For a few more hours they are having a sale on their started kits and they are HALF OFF with code MEDICINEBAG. Yes... HALF off so RUN DON'T WALK to their website. Seriously.

How you tried any of these products? If so, how do you like them?
