Natural Skincare Line: Eclos Skincare Review

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen.*

Eclos Skincare is a line by Freeman Beauty.  What separates Eclos from the other lines is the marriage of high tech, anti-aging skincare with apple stem cell technology.  Honestly, for me, a line can boast about anything but if it doesn't feel good or react well with my skin then no amount of technology will make me like it.  Did I like these products?

I mentioned many times my skincare regimen has to be pretty simple.  If it isn't, I just get bored and forget about using certain products.  This one turned out to be basic and simple.  I received three products: cleanser, moisturizer, and makeup primer.

Eclos Skin Prep Cleanser ($14.99)

Formulated with:
• Apple Stem Cells to help reduce appearance of wrinkles + improve skin texture.
• Ginkgo Biloba, Turmeric + Green Tea to help guard against free radical damage.
• Chamomile to help revitalize and hydrate skin.
• Cucumber to soothe skin stress.

I found the cleanser to be efficient when it came to makeup removal of the minimal type.  The cleanser is a slightly lathering liquid which when applied and emulsified will break down the makeup.

As you can see on my hand, I have foundation and mascara on it.  It does a decent job of removal.  However, if I wore a heavier amount of makeup, let's say some contouring, highlighting, primer beneath my foundation; the many layers weren't removed that easily.  I would recommend double cleansing: remove with a face towel first then use this cleanser.

Eclos Moisture Therapy Regenerative Cream ($24.99)

Formulated with:
• Apple Stem Cells to help reduce appearance of wrinkles + improve skin texture.
• Palmitoyl Glycene, which acts as a skin nutrient, helps minimize signs of aging.
• Shea Butter & Olive Oil to nourish + moisturize. • Antioxidant Vitamin E to help scavenge free radicals.

The moisturizer is good for normal to somewhat dry skin.  If you have super dry skin this won't provide enough moisture.  Also, if I used this during the middle of the winter, my skin wouldn't be provided with enough moisture to last me through the days of dry and cold and the heater would take away the moisture.  It is only because it is summer that I find the moisture adequate.

I can honestly say it did reduce the appearance of wrinkles or fine lines because of the smoothness of the product which in turn deflected the light making my skin look brighter and smoother.  However, I could not for the life of me continue using this product because of the scent.

I am not one to really complain about scents because I do like them in my skincare.  In fact, I don't have a sensitivity to them.  I also prefer the aromatic scents like myrrh, frankincense, neroli and lavender.  I become quite addicted to those and love to smell them continuously.  With this moisturizer, I couldn't handle it.  I found the fragrance way too strong for me.  Usually a scent will disappear as soon as it sits on my skin but this one just lingered on for about 30 minutes.  Way too long!  Also the smell is stronger than most, more of an incense type than a soft aromatherapy one.

In conclusion, this moisturizer does provide a light moisture but the smell is way too much, at least for me.

Eclos Daily HydraPrimer SPF 30 ($15.99)

Formulated with:
• Apple Stem Cells to help reduce appearance of wrinkles + improve skin texture.
• Soy to hydrate and firm.
• Iron Oxides provide a light tint; Broad Spectrum SPF provides UV defense.
• Antioxidant Vitamin E helps scavenge free radicals.

I wouldn't exactly call this a primer.  I would call it a tinted moisturizer.

This is a good makeup product for those who like to wear a minimal amount of "foundation" product.  It only comes in one color so I can't say it will match all because the amount applied can make the color differ.  A thick amount will provide more color and more of a guaranteed SPF protection; a thinner coat will provide a smooth canvas for other products to put on top.

You can see above on my skin I applied a thick coating of it and it does provide some coverage as well as a different color.  I could have applied it thinly and it would have just be used as a primer.  I can't really say this primer blew me away because I have tried others that have a much smoother finish.  Also, again this does have a scent like the moisturizer and it really doesn't help when I think of applying another layer on top because all I smell is this primer.

Okay, so you probably concluded I am not a fan of these products and you are right only because the smell just put me off so much.  Otherwise, the products do perform well for the skincare and makeup minimalist.  Maybe, if Eclos removes the fragrance or softens the scent, I would be willing to try it again with much more enthusiasm.
