Ok, it’s time to talk about skincare. I’ll be the first to admit, my skincare routine has taken a bit of a back seat the last while.
Moms know how it is, between work and all of the kids activities, my self care time is pretty much non-existent. But I’m making it my mission to give my skin the TLC it deserves. But here’s the thing– I need products that work.
These days on social media, all I see is tons of skincare products, all promising incredible results– it can be hard to cut through the noise.
What I do know is that I don’t want to have to use a million different products. I want to establish a 4 or 5 step routine that won’t take me a lot of time but that will still give my skin everything it needs.
So, when I had the opportunity to try a new skincare kid on the block, FIOR, I was definitely excited to see if it would live up to the hype (their Awaken Eye Cream went viral on Tik Tok!).
Right from the start, FIOR’s message and overall vibe really spoke to me. Their mission is to “maximize your skin’s natural radiance potential and reveal its true beauty” by using a blend of plant-based and science-backed ingredients. Love that– I’ve been making an effort to use products that don’t test on animals and that contain more clean ingredients, so already I was loving the sound of FIOR!
I can have sensitive skin from time to time, and any time I switch to a new product, I get nervous that it might irritate my skin. Lucily, FIOR products contain either no fragrance or less than 1% synthetic fragrances, and there are zero toxic ingredients like parabens, phthalates, or SLS / SLES.
After doing my research, I couldn’t wait to put the products to the test! When my package arrived, I put the Awaken Eye Cream, Radiance Serum and Clarifying Cleanser neatly on my bathroom shelf, excited to try them out that night! This may be a small thing, but I really love the bright yellow packaging! It’s also gender neutral which I thought could be great for gift-giving.
That night, before bed, I started by washing my face with the Clarifying Cleanser. The formula is small, light and fresh, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it removed all of my makeup! Like every last tiny little bit! This product feels like a makeup remover and cleanser in one, and you know I’m here for any product that eliminates the need for another!
Sometimes after using other cleansers, my skin can feel a little dry, but that is not the case with FIOR. After washing my face my skin felt so soft and truly clean.
Next up, the Radiance Serum. All I can say is WOW. This is the first serum I’ve used that I actually felt like my skin absorbed every last bit. A little goes a long way, and my skin feels so hydrated and refreshed after it.
All FIOR products contain something called CBX (yeah, I had no idea what it meant either!) . Turns out, CBX is what we have all been missing in our skincare routine! CBX is FIORs world class selection of hemp derivatives that combine CBD’s powerhouse properties with carefully chosen, bio-agreeable ingredients. Many CBD skincare brands just increase the amount of hemp in their products and promise better results. This isn’t the case. FIOR combines CBD, CBG, and CBDA in smaller increments for a refined, full-face experience.
The result? Products that deeply hydrate, nourish and repair your skin using only ingredients found in nature.
Ok, science lesson is over, back to my review!
I waited until the next morning to try the Awaken Eye Cream. So, before my million cups of coffee, I lightly dabbed the eye cream beneath my eyes. The applicator is a dream and feels so good on my skin. It’s cool to the touch and gentle on the skin. Around ten minutes later, I noticed my eyes looked awake and way less puffy. I honestly was surprised– I wasn’t expecting it to work as well as it did.
It’s been a few weeks now, and I am really loving FIOR. Everything about this brand feels new, fresh and let me tell you, the results speak for themselves. Plus, I love how affordable it is. The Cleanser is $39, and the Radiance Serum is $79– I’ve paid a lot more for products that worked half as well.
I’m glad I finally found a streamlined and effective skincare routine that works for me! Guys, check out FIOR- you won’t regret it!
