Wednesday Wishlist #9

 Wednesday Wishlist #9 Genuine Glow

As of today, there are a few products sitting in my virtual cart that I am looking forward to checking out asap. I am enjoying my skincare routine at the moment and it looks like it’s working very well, so my focus has been mainly toward sunscreen products (think positive, sunny days are coming ahead!) and newly launched makeup. In my March Favorites post I received quite a few lovely suggestions (thank you so much for your comments!) so I look forward to trying some of the products that you guys have recommended.

Yuli Cell Perfecto PM. This is the only skincare product that I want to add to my routine right now. I have officially joined the Yuli fanbase because the products that I have tried so far have been fantastic to my skin. You may recall that I included the Panacea Elixir in my March Favorites and I am also using the Pure Mask. The Elixir is not only great at hydrating the skin (like most mists), but I find it to be truly balancing and calming. I will write more about the Pure Mask ASAP, but do your skin a favor and order it in the meanwhile. Now, I know I don’t need a night-time serum at the moment (I have plenty of great serums, my beloved multi-tasker argan oil and the Kahina Night Cream), however the Yuli Cell Perfecto PM serum is receiving a  lot of praise from people as an effective skin brightener. I still have a few dark spots that this can help me erase…

Suntegrity 5 in 1 Natural Moisturizing Face Sunscreen, Tinted, Broad Spectrum Spf 30. This was one of the most recommended by you. Suntegrity is supposed to provide excellent protection without leaving the annoying white cast and I saw that they offer a golden shade that may be just right for my skin tone. Although I do think that conscious, limited exposure to the sun can boost our Vitamin D levels and is really good for our health, I would rather keep my face well-protected from minute 1 of sun exposure to prevent premature aging and dark spots.

Pratima Neem Rose Face Sunscreen SPF30. This one was also highly recommended by a few of you!  According to the many reviews that I have read people agree that it has a comfortable texture, calms sensitive skin, and leaves no white cast. Someone said that it even plumps the skin? Wow, I am sold. The ingredient list also looks fabulous, being pretty simple and including 18.6% of non-nano micronized zinc oxide, which is supposed to be very effective at protecting against harmful UVA, UVB, and UVC rays.

W3LL People Expressionist Bio Extreme Mascara. I have already gotten my hands on the two new RMS Beauty Mascaras and I ordered a refill for the Kjaer Weis one. However, everyone seems to be positively impressed with this one. From the photos I have seen it looks very, very good. Natural, but with a little extra volume compared to the Kjaer Weis one. Also, the wand has a pretty interesting shape and it is supposed to reach every tiny lash. I have really high expectations and cannot wait to try it.

Are you using any of these products? What is currently on your Wishlist?

    I too am a big fan of yuli. I use the Cell Perfecto PM every other night only because I feel it is a little drying for the skin, as it should be since its meant to lighten scars but I think I saw a big difference in the texture and glow of my skin with the Liquid Courage and M.E. Skin Fuel.. On my wishlist is the Kahina products that you have been raving about =))

    • Nichole

      Chrystabel, What type of skin do you have? I was thinking about getting the Liquid Courage & Skin Fuel but I have combination skin prone to breakouts so I am not sure if those would work for me…

      • Laura

        Hello nicole, go with the me skin fuel; it heals blemishes and balances skin. Liquid courage is a good antioxidant serum but I do not think it will recalibrate sebum levels.

      • Chrystabel

        Ive got combination skin that is prone to breakouts too. My skin didnt breakout at all, except with the cell perfecto because it was a little drying, as I have mentioned. But the ME skinfuel really balanced it nicely. I started with this serum first and then slowly bought the rest =) i hope it works for you. its a lovely line

    • Hi beautiful! I am loving so much my Yuli products that I plan to go a little crazy and buy a few serums :D

      As for Kahina, I would start with the Toning Mist and the Argan Oil. Still two favorites of mine ;)

  • Mademoiselle nature

    Just about to start using Yuli Panacea elixir…!
    i have a few other products I want to try but not immediately. I do not like switch beauty products too often as I want my skin to “fully” benefit and aims at a really consistant routine.x

    • Hi love, that sounds like a very wise approach. That way you can also understand if a product truly works for you or not. How are you liking the Panacea Elixir so far? I love it, and plan to try Cocoon as well. Thanks for sharing!

  • I feel like the Pratima sunscreen is on everyone’s wishlist lol. It looks amazing! My only issue is trying to justify the outrageous shipping price :(

    • Kelly

      I wait till End of Nov and they have a free shipping sale and I stock up for a year.

      • Whaaaaat!? Such exciting news :)

      • Sounds great! Thanks for sharing Kelly! :)

  • I just bought the W3ll People Mascara and so far I am really loving it! It lengthens lashes quite a bit and provides more volume than most natural mascaras I have tried. Great wishlist!

    • Hi love, I have actually received it too! I will have to write a review for it ;) Thanks for sharing!

  • Laura

    Nice selection. Would love to try pratima but it’s not available in europe …:(. Suntegrity has silicones, which I try to avoid. Cell perfecto gets much love, I have been using it on scars and pigmentation for 3 months now and have seen no improvement/difference. I will finish the bottle though; maybe my skin needs longer…

    • Hi Laura, thanks for sharing your experience. I am now considering to purchase the M.E.Fuel first, because I love the ingredients, and I think that it may be more appropriate for my skin type. I still want to try the Cell Perfecto, though!

      Sorry you can’t find Pratima in Europe. I plan to contact the company and ask if it will become available in Europe in the future.

      Thanks for always taking time to leave thoughtful comments, I truly appreciate it! :)

  • Adele

    What a great wishlist! Pratima sunscreen is also on my wishlist as I have also heard it goes on very well and is supposed to be great for blemished skin. Would love to see this reviewed and the suntegrity product! Yuli Cell Perfecto PM is another product I’m longing to try, I was advised to try this after my breakouts are calmed down so that it could be fully healing of the damage but my sister who had a lot of acne scars and pockmarks used a bottle of it last year and everyone commented on how great her skin looked over the holidays so I know it works, I just need to be patient and wait for my skin to calm down.

    • Hi Adele, Pratima’s sunscreen is currently out of stock, but will available in about two weeks :)
      I am not sure what to expect from the Cell Perfecto PM. I don’t have acne marks, but I hope is going to lighten my sun spots! Will definitely review it, even though it’s going to take me some time to see how it works.
      Thanks for sharing! I hope your skin gets better soon :)

  • Jennifer

    I just started using the Pratima sunscreen, after using Suntegrity for more than a year. Both are lovely, just very different. On my challenging skin (dry, sundamaged, blemished, irritated) Pratima sinks in completely and leaves a matte finish. Suntegrity is much thicker, leaves more of a dewy appearance, doesn’t really sink in. I think I’ll end up using the Suntegrity in the morning as a BB/CC cream (moisturizing, priming, sunscreen), and keep the Pratima in my bag for afternoon touchups. (I reapply sunscreen throughout the day b/c I’m outside a lot).

    • Hi Jennifer! I am guessing that Pratima is going to work better for my skin types then! I prefer face products with a matte finish. Thank you so so much for sharing, your comment was very helpful!
      I have a question for you: does Suntegrity 5 in 1 have a good coverage? Thanks love!

      • Jennifer

        I forgot to add that Suntegrity’s site sells samples, so you can try for yourself for about $5. I’d say the color coverage is more robust than a tinted sunscreen, but not as strong as, say Well People or Vapour stick foundation or RMS uncoverup. I’d strongly recommend the samples — it’s a nice amount of product, so you definitely have a chance to see if you like it or not. I’ll add that Pratima also includes lovely little samples in their packages (you can’t pick them), and they seem to complement the products ordered, e.g. a product for sensitive skin will get a sample for sensitive skin.

  • Deej

    Pratima is a gem! You really have got to try their sunscreen, it is unbelievable for summer. Yuli is another hidden green beauty gem that my facialist recommended to me. Cell Perfecto in particular was recommended to treat my hyperpigmented acne marks and acne scars. I noticed results the first 2 weeks then it seemed to not do anything but then toward the end of the first bottle, I saw marks fade almost completely and scars lightening and smoothing. Wonderful line.

    • Sounds amazing Deej! I am waiting for Pratima to restock their face suncreen. In the meanwhile, have you tried anything else that you would recommend getting from Pratima Skincare?
      As for Yuli, I am hoping that the Cell Perfecto is going to help me lighten my sun spots. They are not as bad as they used to be, but I wish to improve a little more :) I am so glad it worked for you!

      Thanks for sharing! <3

  • These are all new products to me. Love your logo by the way!

    • Thank you! Did you spot anything that you would like to try? x

      • The RMS mascara! I’ve heard great things about some of their other products.

  • shortsmallsweet

    Cell Perfecto is definitely on my list too, thanks to huge raves from Jade (nephriblog)!

    • Please let me know how you like it if you try it! :)

  • Lara

    I concur, Cell Perfecto is a very unique serum that is different from anything else I tried. Your skin looks pretty good so I don’t know if you’ll see as many results unless you have acne marks hiding in the pictures =) I purchased this after rave reviews from Neimansidealist, Wanderlusting Beauty, Nephriblog, Beauty Palette (and the list goes on… lol) and it did not disappoint. Definitely one of the must tries in the beauty world.

    • Hi Lara, thanks for sharing! I do not have any acne marks, but I do have sun spots and I was hoping the Cell Perfecto would help me to lighten them. Any thoughts? :)

  • Hana V.

    Hello, Lilly, glad you keep us updated with your lovely blog!
    The Pratima sunscreen sounds great! Too bad they are only in the States, although my dad might be coming there for work in June so he could shop for me there, right :D Plus the ED4OLO Cleansing oil unavailable to get in Europe I am excited for. (By the way Juice Beauty have just recently released new Cleansing oil, too! Will try myself as well, love me some great oil products, too bad natural brands do not make cleansing or shower oils much.)
    Take care,

    • Hi Hana! Not sure if I mentioned this before, but the ED4OLO cleansing oil will be available in Europe this year. Not sure when, but it will, Suzanne (OLO’s founder) confirmed it.
      I am new to Pratima, so I had no idea it was only available in the States, I am sorry! Is there any similar sunscreen formula available in Europe? Will have to look into that ;)
