Victoria Watts created VictoriaLand Beauty (VLB). a skincare line formulated with naturally active, non-toxic ingredients that are hand blended in her kitchen. Her mission? To empower women with skin that looks and feels good enough to Go Naked (in other words, without any makeup).
Showcased at the IndieBeautyExpo, the idea behind the brand is to offer consumers a trio of multitasking, Skin-Loving treatments made with what Victorialand calls: ” some of natures’ most powerful performers and age-defiers, known to drive performance and leave skin primed and good to go with or without makeup.”
One of Victoria’s children is visually impaired, so Victorialand Beauty also gives back 2% of sales to Dream, Dare, Deliver ⎯ the campaign for Boston’s Children’s Hospital helping visually impaired and blind children.
The brand is cruelty-free and has plenty of natural ingredients including plant, fruit, and nut essential oils and active botanical extracts, so skin is primed and ready to #GoNaked. Furthermore, the products are free of commonly used harmful ingredients including parabens, mineral oil, lanolin, artificial colors, and fragrances.
I received the Skin Loving Mini Set ($55) that is good for travel, and also gives you a chance to try the line before you plunk down extra dollars for the full sizes.
The Eye and Lip treatment in this line is $55 on its own, the Nourishing Face and Neck Cream is $75 and the Revitalizing Face Oil is $80 so the minis are a good “try me” value.
There is a full description of all the ingredients on the Victorialand website (we like this so you can decide if there’s anything in the list that bothers you). Here are the basics (as described on the website):
Skin-Loving Elixir Revitalizing Face Oil: Face oils are so trendy.
If you’re a fan, you’ll enjoy a strong floral scent and what Victorialand calls “a multi-tasking “force of nature” to help smooth wrinkles and hyperpigmentation (brown spots) while minimizing the effects of environmental stressors, also increasing skin density and firmness.
The Bottom Line:
Will you really feel like going without your makeup after using these products?
There doesn’t seem to be any true clinical testing offered on the site (that part is weak.
According to the Victorialand “Dare to Go Naked Challenge” 81% of people tested said the Skin-Loving Moisturizer left their skin looking & feeling good enough to Go Naked!
Perhaps it could make your skin so improved you might need less makeup or none, but that would be entirely up to you.
My personal opinion is that like all skincare, you need to choose the right products for your skin condition, use them properly and regularly, and be patient. For those who insist upon natural ingredients, Victorialand provides a 3-step skincare routine that makes life a lot easier.
