The Verdict {BeautyMint Review}

**This post is not sponsored in any way, just my own personal review of a product I decided to try out.**

A few weeks ago, I began trying out Jessica Simpson's skin care project Beautymint.  Today, I want to give you my thoughts on it and why I won't be continuing to use it.

The initial attractive selling points for BeautyMint:

  • Created by a Beverly Hills Celebrity Skincare Expert 
  • Visibly reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles
  • Patented technology and premium ingredients
  • Low Monthly cost

I am looking for a product that will improve my skin all around, but specifically address the fine lines around my eyes and on my forehead, while minimizing breakouts.
Before / No Make-Up

I was very hopeful that BeautyMint would work, and did notice the following after a few weeks of use:

  • Improved texture of skin
  • Smaller pores
  • Dry skin patches around nose gone!

Unfortunately, I will not be continuing to use BeautyMint because:

  • Breakouts - I had an increase in breakouts, as well as tiny pimples
  • Forehead skin became very dry and itchy, possibly an allergic reaction to the product?
  • No real noticeable improvement of the areas I was hoping to address
  • Skin seemed more red and uneven
 After - Skin is More Red, Breakout
I took a close up and you can really see the redness/irritation from the product.

I wouldn't necessarily discourage anyone from using BeautyMint, especially because it is hard to tell whether or not I had a particular sensitivity to one or more of their ingredients.  I'd definitely be interested in hearing from others who have used this product to see if they had any kind of itching/redness occur.

  1. Wow, that definitely didn't help your skin any. :( Are you feeling better now that you've discontinued?

  2. Yes, much better. I'm actually using a different product now…Arbonne RE9 Advanced. I'm trying it for a week. I have one more product lined up to try after that. :)

  4. Thank you for your post. I have difficult skin and I was looking at the beauty Mint line. ( only because it had a coupon which made it incredibly inexpensive).  I actually really like my current line but I am always open to try new things. Because you never know.  I currently  use Jordan Essentials, similar to Arbonne it is a direct sales company.    I am NOT a rep,  but I am sure it would be easy to find one by going to their site. The  thing I do like is that  they  use botanicals  and no DEA, Mineral Oil, Parabens, Isopropyl Alcohol, SLS/SLES or aluminum.  Thanks  for helping me avoid a mistake.
