Long gone are the days when Madara was just a small green beauty brand. Nowadays, it’s extremely popular with a wide range of organic skincare and haircare products. Everything from branding to packaging to ingredients is well thought out, so you know that by choosing this brand, you choose quality. I like that.
Madara has a few skincare ranges, directed at a particular skin type or problem. For example, my all-time favorite Madara SOS Mask is from the SOS range, formulated specifically for dry, tired skin. SMART Antioxidants range, which I’m focusing on today, was created to target first wrinkles by fighting 90% of free radicals and to give some glow to your skin. I’ve received both of these skincare items with LoveLula’s Monthly Subscription Box, which is honestly an awesome beauty box to subscribe to if you like natural skincare, etc.
Anyway, here’s my experience with the Madara SMART Antioxidant products:
Fine Line Minimising Day Cream* 20ml sample / full size retails for $48 -£35
Designed for dry and very dry skin types. Usually, you can expect heavy and even oily consistency with these types of creams, but it isn’t the case with this one. I would not recommend this day cream if your skin is extremely dry, but for someone with normal/slightly dry skin, it might be a great choice. Especially, if you enjoy light, satin textures and matte finish.
I tested the cream more than once, and it does make dry patches on my skin disappear. However, my skin is crazy dry at the moment, so I need much more hydration than this cream offers. Another thing I want to mention is that it claims to target the first signs of wrinkles. I didn’t spot any miraculous transformation of my forehead lines, but I believe that the Fine Line Minimising Cream is supposed to prevent instead of erasing them anyway.
Anti-Fatigue Eye Rescue Cream* 15ml / $40 -£31
For me, eye care products are the hardest to review. Mainly, because most of the time (though, not always) eye creams are for prevention, so you rarely see instant results. The first thing that I want to mention and which impresses me is the consistency of this eye cream. It has a lovely smooth and velvety texture to it, which is not sticky at all. Like with all eye creams, you need the tiniest amount of it for both eyes. It has a sweet candy-like scent.
The Anti-Fatigue Eye Rescue Cream promises to target fine lines, dark circles, puffiness and tired eyes. To be honest, I’ve never had a problem with any of these issues. That is until recently when I became a mom. Sleepless nights can really take a toll on you, and one of the first things that show that you’re tired are your eyes. While coffee keeps my eyes open at least to some level 😀 , I have puffiness and some dark circles under the eyes. So, does it help? Yes and no. Unfortunately, it doesn’t reduce any puffiness, but it definitely made my eyes to look less tired. I also like the idea of using antioxidants for my skin to prevent some fine lines that can easily occur if you have dry skin.
Have you tried Madara skincare? Any favorites?
