My New Routine For Bright Even Skin Tone || Skinsational Review + A Giveaway

Pinterest graphic for how i achieve evn skin tone cassie daves blog

“Naturally” Bright even skin tone is the one thing that I’ve been trying to achieve over the years and I think I’ve finally cracked it!

I’ve never had major issues with my skin and I’m one of those fortunate to have “problem free skin” but the one thing that has got me poring over skin care routines and obsessing over skin care products is my un- even skin tone. You know when your body and legs are obviously team light skinned but you’re still unsure if your face can qualify as caramel or brown-skinned? That!

I know a lot of people can relate to this because our Nigerian sun wrecks major damage and uneven skin tone is one of the main complaints I hear on the regular asides from Acne. So when I finally found a natural skin care brand that has helped even my skin tone out and bring that glow I’ve been longing for, I just knew that it would be unfair to not share with my blog fam.

A couple of people have commented on my new glow and asked what products I use on my skin. I wish I could just say that it’s glow from God, minding my business and drinking lots of water but while that’s part of it, a major part is thanks to my new routine using the skinsational skin care products.

Skinsational skincare is a Nigerian natural skin care brand. I already talked about going natural with my skin care routine here so when I stumbled on the brand at home, I knew I had to try their products. What actually got me sold was the multiple testimonies from practically everyone in my house on how my sister’s skin has been glowing ever since she started using their products.

I immediately got on their Instagram page, found a contact number and placed my order via WhatsApp. I got three of their products – face scrub, soap, and cream which I’ve used consistently for about a month now and decided it’s about time to put up my review. In case you’re wondering, no! This is not a sponsored post.

I replaced my previous skin routine with skinsational products and now use just these three products and I can definitely see the difference in my skin tone. I’ll be talking about my new routine and reviewing each of the products as well. There’s also going to be a giveaway of one of the products so keep reading!

Want Naturally Bright And More Even Skin? I've Got You Covered! Here's A Plug. Click To Tweet

1. Miracle Face Soap.

Packaging: The miracle face soap comes in a small 75g tub which seals well and makes for easy access. It is the only one of the three products that came with a label showing the constituents of the soap and an instruction manual

Feel: This soap has a pasty feel (not the regular feel I’m used to but it’s not something I can’t handle so no complaints about that) and lathers just right so a small quantity usually does the job. Like the Namaste Organics black soap, It also doesn’t give me that extra dry feel I got with the Dudu Osun

I honestly don’t use this as the instruction says because I don’t understand applying soap on my face for 15mins and I usually don’t have the luxury of time. Sometimes, I apply the soap on my face as soon as I get into the bathroom and wash off after bathing and other times I apply and wash off immediately.

Price: N2500

 

2. Miracle Face Scrub.

Packaging: Now, this comes in a tub as well but a 200g size. It didn’t come with any labels so I have no idea what it contains which isn’t cool at all. Now that I think of it, is there really an alternative to a tub for a product like this?

Feel: This is my least favorite of the three products, mainly because the consistency is more watery than thick so it can be very messy. I prefer my scrubs thick so I can feel the grit instead of having to put a finger in to mix it all and scoop to apply. It has a minty feel that can irritate your eyes if you’re not too careful with it. All these aside though, it definitely leaves my skin feeling smooth after use but I doubt I’ll re-purchase after this finishes and would stick to my DIY face scrub which equally did a wonderful job to my skin!

I use this three times a week and sometimes I throw in some extra days when I get off a stressful 24hrs call at work and feel like my skin needs some TLC.

Price: N3000

3. Turmeric Face Cream.

Packaging: Again, this came without any label or instruction and in a really small tub that I wonder why it isn’t just named a “sample size” *side eye*

Feel: This is actually my favorite of all three products! I don’t know if it’s the color that’s deceiving me into feeling like it is super effective lol but I can actually feel a slight glow after applying this on my skin.

It absorbs really well although it rubs off a bit rubbery on dry skin so I like my face to be a little wet before I apply it.

Price: N5000. The smallest, yet the most expensive lol

UPDATE: I’m beginning to doubt the “organicness” of this product because I don’t look more than a bit toned now. It appears like there’s a bleaching constituent in there and it isn’t all turmeric.

Giveaway:

skinsational skincare miracle face soap for bright even skin toneI’ll be giving away the miracle face soap and all you need to do is go follow me on instagram: @cassiedaves, share this post using the click to tweet box above and leave a comment on why you want to win. Winner will be announced on Wednesday

Nigerian fashion blogger cassie daves bare faced and smiling Nigerian fashion blogger cassie daves bare faced and smiling with even skin tone I use the scrub to exfoliate, then the face soap to cleanse followed afterward by the face cream.

I honestly can’t say for sure which one of the three products has helped my complexion (it’s probably a mix of all three) but I can definitely say that they are the reason for my recent glow and brighter skin tone.

UPDATE: So I asked around(around meaning my sister and google) and found out that the face cream is the main product that helped with the toning. Apparently it contains a lot of turmeric and can also isn’t meant to be used long term. I’m currently weaning off it and watching to see if there’s any change in my skin tone after this.

Now I’m just looking for the perfect natural face mask to add to my routine and a good sunscreen to maintain it all. So, please if you have any face mask and sunscreen suggestions for me, kindly let me know in the comments.

Also, have you used any skinsational skincare product before? How did it work for you?

  • Hi Cassie, thanks for sharing this post. Will appreciate it if I’m gifted with this miracle face soap. My face is prone to breakout and different products seem to work only for a while. Dudu Osun has proven too dry for my skin.

  • Thank you so much Cassie for sharing, I would love to win this black because I can see that it is very good and a sister needs to glow up this summer plus my skin only understands natural products, Thank you

  • Thank you for this post Cassie
    I would like to win because I’ve always wanted a healthy looking skin, it’s just always been a struggle buying products that don’t do much and then the effective ones that work will cause a dent in my account. I rarely makeup cause it just seems like “load” on face most times and If I truly want to do without heavy makeup or non atall somedays then healthy glowy looking skin is for the win.

  • Thank you for this post Cassie

  • Looks like a great tip for the discerning. Nicely done and your skin does look healthy and nice. In the end, with different skin tones, genes and lifestyle, part of having good skin all boils down to eating healthy, exercising and drinking lots of water.

    Warm greetings to you!

  • I was told I have a “darker undertone”. I don’t even understand what that meant and never bothered to find out. In order to make my face match my body, I just wear a foundation shade that matches my neck/chest.
    Well, now I’ll have to consider getting something like this skinsational turmeric face cream as sometimes I’ll have to go without makeup.

    Thanks for sharing Cassie.

  • Hi Cassandra thanks a lot for this post. I would really love to win this because I have the same issue you did with your skin especially the face.I’ve heard great reviews about the product. It will be life changing to have a glowing skin too.

  • Hi cassie, thanks for sharing.
    Like who doesn’t need to go natural?
    I have a really sensitive skin and all the chemically based products have been using just seems to leave my skin with bad stories. I’ve never tried organics before and i do hope i win this giveaway…. I do need some natural goodness.

  • Hi Cassie. This post was helpful, thank you.Please I would like to win the soap because my face needs help! After some years in Ghana and coming back to Abuja sun, my face has refused to blend to the rest of my skin. I have tried different black soaps but it just keeps fluctuating 🙁 In fact I am currently darker 🙁
    I would like to try skinsational because it is natural and it has worked for you! Thanks in advance 🙂

  • Wonderful post, Cassie! The products are really legit from what I can see. I mean your face is basking in so much radiance. I really would love to win the scrub. After Dude osu burnt the sides my face last year, I’ve been trying out different scrubs but blehhh.. No result. Would love to give skinsational a try.

  • The turmeric face cream looks and sounds so great, I would like to try it sometime. Your skin is really glowing Cassie, so gorgeous! One thing I really like is Rosehip Oil, I apply it to my face every night. It’s not greasy and I always wake up with supple and glowing skin. xx

  • why am i just seeing this. thank you so much for this awareness. i would love love to win this giveaway. i have really bad uneven tone especially due to my recent acne out break. its been a major struggle. Would love to win this giveaway… Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Cassie! Nice post! i can relate to this post as my struggle for an even skin tone is real, lool. I use turmeric too for my face after reading your DIY face scrub post. Also i have been using black soap for a little while now i can say i prefer them because they are all natural!
    I will recommend you try the sunscreen from @thearabianspa on Instagram, their products are nice but quite pricey sha! i have tried a couple of them and i can say its worth the money.

    Addy.

  • Here’s my problem all of these even skin cosmetic are mostly for the face 😧.the other parts of my body wants to be even too.

  • Hi Cassie,
    Hope this message meets you well.
    A friend just called my attention to your blog update.
    Firstly, the face cream isn’t called turmeric face cream, we call it the exclusive face cream and times without number we have posted the ingredients on our page. It contains natural skin lightening and Brightening actives which are glutathione, Kojic acid and sepi white. these are highly effective actives, you can read up on them.
    Further light on the product, the oil phase is a combination of Sunflower, mango butter, cetyl alcohol and E wax.
    The cool down face is a combination of a natural preservative, the above mentioned actives, turmeric powder and palm oil.
    I hope this is a clearer insight.
    Thanks for the review.
    Have an amazing week.
    Warm regards,
    Skinsational

  • Ah I am so happy you’ve found your holy grail in skincare . I will use the products too and I am excited to see how it works as I have had issues with ueneven skin tone as well . Happy glowing !
