If you’ve been following along with my blog, you know that I’ve recently began posting more about fitness and beauty. This is NOT to take away from the business aspect of a working parent at all. In fact, fitness and beauty tie in heavily with the success of any working parent. I know for me at least, it’s sometimes hard to balance the demands of work and parenting. Even more so when I work at home. I find myself feeling frumpy more often than not, and without the socialization that comes along with a commuting job, I sometimes feel like I’m left behind in the trenches when it comes to fashion and beauty.
Now that my youngest is fast approaching 1, I’m shifting the focus back on me. I’ve endured months of long nights, breastfeeding, and more, and I’m looking forward to feeling more like a Woman, rather than JUST a mommy. Luckily, Mia Mariu was right there to help with my transformation!
First project: Skin.
Mia Mariu is an awesome and innovative company that offers botanical skin products and mineral makeup at highly affordable prices. They offer “real health, beauty, balance, and harmony, for real women”. This is EXACTLY what I had in mind, so I was excited to be granted the opportunity to review their products!
What’s in the Box:
RestauraCel-C Microdermabrasion Refinisher Cream
SPF 30+ Hydrating Moisturizer
Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation Primer
Mineral Cream Concealer
Mineral Cream Foundation
I was immediately impressed with the packing of the products, and found the each product to look very nice! I didn’t waste much time diving in!
Here’s me before:
Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of the products I receive. The Microdermabrasion Cream and Moisturizer made my skin feel fresh and moisturized, and the primer seemed to lock it all in. I don’t usually use concealer, so I was VERY pleased with the coverage I received from it. The foundation seemed a tad bit “chalky” looking when I first tried it on, but after some blending it seems just fine. I think I may need to go with a slightly darker shade on my next order.
I HIGHLY recommend giving Mia Mariu a try!
