Skin Care Product Review

-- Onsen Skin Care Products --

Hampig Minassian of Onsen Secret  ( first discussed my taking on a review project for some of their products back on May 7th and I received the products on May 15th. They were shipped from Chatsworth California (US) on May 8 (shipping charged to the company was only $10) and arrived here in Creston BC (Canada) on May 15th in a small 2 lb. cardboard box with polystyrene peanut packaging to cushion products – arrived delivered to my door.

The Package included:

Crystal Clear Salt Scrub – Lavender Spa (13.8 fl. oz./395 ml.), retails for $49.95 US

Daily Hydration Face & Neck Cream (1.78 fl. oz./50 ml.) - Retails for $129.95 US

Hydrating Leaves Nail Kit; includes Body Lotion (6.8 fl. oz./200 ml.), Cuticle Conditioner (1 fl. oz./30 ml.), a four-sided buffer and nail file. Retails for $149.95 US, but is on for a special price right now of $99.70

All the containers themselves are recyclable glass or plastic.

I have very sensitive skin and find that a lot of products, even some of those sold in health stores, can cause a skin reaction – anything from redness to rashes or even pimples. As sensitive as I am, I didn’t have any reaction to the products Hampig sent my way. Their products, ranging from masks and peels to moisturizers and salt scrubs, are based on a specially designed micro-water complex that involves molecules that are so small that they can penetrate through the skin cell walls better then water itself. Because of this the products are able to offer more bio-available nutrients deep into the skin. 

The Daily Hydration cream is very light, non-greasy and is said to deliver hydration while diminishing fine lines, enhance elasticity and plump up the skin. The directions recommend morning and night applications, and the cream will get along well with the use of a sun screen during the day. This product has a 24 month life span after opening.

The Hydrating Leaves Nail Kit came in a specially designed white carrier with a zipper closure and included…

The body lotion has a 24-month lifespan after opening and makes my skin feel incredibly silky for hours after the first application. It is a sensational feeling to have clothes slip and slide over the skin like that. This product includes seven minerals and special hydrating ingredients tat are, believe it or not, all natural. The buffer is color coded to help users grow beautifully manicured nails. The grey silver side is to remove ridges and to smooth the nail, the blue side is used to stimulate the nail bed, and the white side is used to buff the nail to a naturally smooth gloss. After using the buffer, the final step is to apply the cuticle conditioner. As for the cuticle conditioner… it really works! I am a gardener and a do-it-yourself-er, who tends to have rough broken cuticles and nails, but this stuff softened them up in only a couple applications and I plan to continue to use this product for sure. This product also has a 24-month lifespan after opening.

The Crystal Clear Salt Scrub utilizes sea salt crystals with a blend of natural oils including grape and sunflower, along with lavender and vitamins. Still standing in the tub after a warm shower I took out the sea-blue colored bottle and following the instructions, I rubbed the salts in a circular motion on my legs, buttocks and arms – paying special attention to the knees and elbows. After a minute or so of this treatment I then rinsed my body using warm, not hot, water and waited to see the results. The result was luxurious silky smooth skin that called out for touching! This product has a shelf life of 18 months after opening.

For me, personally, I found the fragrance a little strong for all the products listed here except for the salt scrub – and this is likely because I choose to use fragrance free products, don’t use perfume or hair sprays, etc., and am not a fan of air fresheners. The strongest scent you’ll find in my home is some mild essential oils like lavender, rosemary, oregano, or cedar. As such I realize I’m more sensitive to strong fragrances then other people might be. My husband likened the fragrance to be a cross between honeydew melons and flowers. Of these products my favorites are the nail treatment kit (which is amazing) and the see salt scrub.

I’m not really the pampering kind of girl – you couldn’t drag me in to a hair or manicure salon, but I sure felt pampered after using these products. I loved the feel of my skin and the look of my neglected nails. What really impressed me about the buffer was that Onsen offers a lifetime supply of replacement strips for their customers. The company has a policy against testing on animals
