Ariel's Treasure Trove - Product ReviewPosted April 09 2015
I meet Ariel through the Pagan Business Network. She messaged me in response to some of the discussions we were having about marketing and exposure in the group. While we were talking I browsed through her shop and read some of the information she had on her products. I ended up at her blog. Her ideas and processes intrigued me. The conversation turned from marketing to her products. I really liked that the line was all vegan. I was about to purchase some facial cleanser and moisturizer so I decided to try some of hers instead of reordering what I normally use.
I asked her which one I should order. She asked some questions about my skin and what issues I had and offered to make up a custom cleanser and moisturizer for me. I asked her to add a facial mask in the mix, a handmade cowl and placed my order. This was a couple of days after Christmas. (I have gotten behind on the reviews I wanted to write.)
When I first opened her package I was impressed with the time and effort she had taken to make the package attractive on the outside as well as the inside. The packaging was obviously handmade. It was colorful and happy. An attractive package ups the excitement level when opening it.
When I first tried the cleanser I was skeptical. I’m used to a creamy cleanser and this was much thinner. When I finished washing my face for the first time I was impressed with how soft it felt. Next I tried the mask. It is a dry clay powder mix that you add water to. I put it on my face, let it dry and washed it off. Amazingly enough, my skin was even softer than it was after using the cleanser. Next, the moisturizer. ….
As for the cowl….warm…soft….it has become one of my favorite winter accessories. I wore it the rest of the winter both indoors and out.
In the spirit of transparency I just placed an order a couple of weeks ago for some of her products to sell in my shop. I did that because I was so impressed with the quality of the product and how well it worked.
