About a month ago I was contacted by Christy from Willing Beauty explaining the HY+5 Challenge and I was hooked! Stepping back for a second, here is a little back story on the beauty line. Back in 2009, Christy and her daughter Willa and I launched willa. They curated a line of simple and safe skincare formulated for women made with natural ingredients you can trust. After Christy became a skin cancer survivor at 29, this inspired her to teach her own daughter to care for her skin from a young age. When the duo could not find healthy, skin-protective products that girls would reach for every day, they decided to launch their own line, and thus willa was born.
I was fortunate enough to try it five products from the HY+5 Challenge out for myself and thus wanted to share my experience with it! I replaced the five skin products with my skin care routine to see what effects the line would have. Essentially, the HY+5 products all contain nature’s most powerful moisture-magnet, hyaluronic acid, in addition to five anti-aging powerhouses: uber-absorbable vitamin C; anti-inflammatory prickly pear oil; marine glycoproteins with anti-wrinkle powers; thermally-activated bacteria to protect skin cells; and antioxidant-rich edelweiss flower to fend off free radicals.
Below are the 5 products I received:
My first impression to this line when it arrived in the mail was the packaging is so cute!! The box that contains the five products is adorable and immediately made me excited to try them all out.
Using the Products:
As soon as I open the box I incorporated the products into my beauty routine and LOVED the results. I used the cleanser in the shower when I washed my face and it seriously made my skin feel so clean and smooth. Before I apply my make up now, I have been using the tinted moisturizer and it works so well. It keeps my make up in place and also makes for a great base so I can wear it alone and it provides some coverage. The day moisturizer is such a life savior during the dry Colorado winters. I have a couple of re-occurring dry patches around my jaw line so using the cream once a day makes such a difference. Lastly, the night time duo Sleepover cream and Partner in Time age defying serum are my little partners in crime. I’ve never been an avid serum user (is that even a thing?) before bed, but quickly got into the routine of using these two products before lights out. I love the results and my skin feels amazing when I wake up.
After 5+ consecutive days of using these products in place of my prior skin care routine, I can 100% say that my skin looks and feels amazing. It is always moisturized and the overall texture of my skin feels so great. The Willing Beauty products are formulated for all skin types, including sensitive skin and contain safer ingredients than what you would find at a drugstore. Try the HY+5 Challenge for yourself and you will be hooked!
