If you happen to develop skin cancer before the age of 30. When you start a successful social social selling company at age 14. Because you’re part of an incredible mother/daughter team, you can open your heart and be “willing” to help others.
Bella Weems and her mother Chrissy, the founders of social selling blockbuster Origami Owl® with Christy and Willa, another mother-daughter duo who founded teen skincare line, willaTM. created another skincare line for adults: Willing Beauty.
Willing Beauty believes that beauty begins with the heart. It’s how you feel not just what you see in the mirror. The skincare line Willing Beauty is about helping your skin to be its best, no matter your age or skin issues.
Try Willing Beauty HY+5
This sounds impressive, doesn’t it?
We tried just one set of products from Willing Beauty: their HY+5 Regimen (SKU: 7370101 $138.00).
Willing Beauty calls HY+5 a streamlined skin care system.
They say it’s: “age-defying, interactive, fights the signs of aging while providing advanced hydration and protection against environmental aggressors.”
The HY+5 Collection
The HY+5 regimen includes: Do Over Nourishing Cleanser, Daydream Illuminating Day Moisturizer, Partner In Time Age-Defying Night Serum, Get Set SPF 30 Tinted Primer, Sleepover Replenishing Night Cream
For many people using five products in a daily skincare routine isn’t a big deal. This is just a cleanser, a serum, day and night moisturizers, and SPF protection.
For others, a cleanser and a moisturizer plus SPF might be all they are “willing” to use in a daily routine for beauty.
Ingredients-What’s in Hy+5
You also get Willing Beauty’s proprietary HY+5 Complex (hyaluronic acid, Vitamin C, prickly pear cactus seed oil, marine glycoproteins, alpine edelweiss flower, and deep sea hydrothermal enzymes).
And another thing we really liked about Willing Beauty is that every ingredient in every product is listed
How to Use:
DAY: Start with Do Over Nourishing Cleanser. Add Daydream Illuminating Day Moisturizer and Get Set SPF 30 Tinted Primer.
Evening: Cleanse with Do Over Nourishing Cleanser. Add Partner In Time Age-Defying Night Serum and Sleepover Replenishing Night Cream.
How Did They Perform?
Do Over Nourishing Cleanser: a nice , gentle cleanser that has a bit of gentle exfoliation/ We like that anyone with skin issues or sensitive skin can use it. Rose bud powder and apple extract help remove makeup and dirt.
Daydream Illuminating Day Moisturizer We like the economy of this. All you need is a dime-sized amount on face, neck, decollete. There is a slight floral fragrance. Our skin felt soft and nourished.
Get Set SPF 30 Tinted Primer (active is 20% Zinc Oxide). The medium tint will work best on medium skin tones for a natural no makeup look.
If you like a bit of a glow you’ll get it or follow it up with your favorite matte foundation. Very light or deep skin tones may want to use this under their foundation.
Partner In Time Age-Defying Night Serum & Sleepover Replenishing Night Cream everyone’s skin is different, If your skin is very dry, a serum during the day or a treatment product at night makes sense as an option.
But the Replenishing Night Cream was thick and very emollient. Heavy products on your skin when you face is about to hit the pillow isn’t pleasant.
We thought it was fine used sparingly but not everyone needs a night cream that is this um…nourishing.
According to Willing Beauty, within a week, 94% reported softer, smoother, soothed and more supple skin that felt more moisturized. *Other claims say high rates of skin improvements in 30 days.
The Bottom Line:
Given the ingredients listed, we can see that smoothing and moisturization could be highly likely as the products have proven, good for your skin ingredients that can certainly help with skin issues and provide anti-aging support.
We liked the vibe of Willing Beauty and we can see that there are plenty of other products to try. You can also try one or more of the Hy+5 products individually if you wish,wish. At what amounts to less than $28 per product it isn’t over the moon crazy expensive to try the entire collection.
However, at what amounts to less than $28 per product for the entire HY+5 collection, if you have the budget it might be worth it to get the collection and try everything at once.
