|ISUN Skincare products|
Today I am coming at you with a review of truly gorgeous skincare line that quickly found it's way into my daily skincare routine and my heart - that is ISUN Skincare. Made of only the best, wildcrafted and organic ingredients, these products are truly luxurious in terms of the whole experience - starting from truly natural ingredients list, to the products feel on your skin, their performance, to the luxurious dark glass packaging the products are housed in. And supercharged with crystals. All this makes my heart sing! You won't find a long list of ingredients, but what you get is truly exceptional in quality, not to mention intriguing - ever heard of spinning structures of single atoms of liquid gold, silver and platinum called "Ormus"? Well, you are about to find out!
ISUN Skincare was started by Bunnie Gullick, who is a is a pioneer way ahead of her time creating wild-crafted organic products before it was even considered important or effective. After more than 20 years of successfully developing and manufacturing skin care products for others, in her late 50’s, the opportunity came to create her own line of skincare products. With a formal background in clinical nutrition and having been self-educated and mentored in botanical chemistry specialising in skin care, combined with an intuitive mind and heart open to helping humanity and our planet in whatever ways she could, she created ISUN.
Read more on ISUN and it's founder here. And for now, let's get cracking, shall we? As always with skincare, I tested and used the products for six weeks before giving you my two cents on them.
|ISUN Skincare Ormus Myst|
ISUN’s signature mist and sacred aroma is derived from the pure living water pouring out from a hidden forested mountain-side cavern at 3,000 meters in the pristine mountains of Southern Colorado. Called the ‘Shining Mountains’ by the Ute Indians because of the quality of light and vibration in the region, the water is alive with rejuvenating energy to restore health and well-being. Mystically found in the water are tiny rapid spinning structures of single atoms called ‘Ormus’. These lively atoms of liquid gold, silver & platinum are super-conductors of energy that speed up cell communication for rapid repair and regeneration of living tissues.
My experience with it:
I truly love it, I think it is my favorite item from what I tried! After so many years of using only rosewater on my face, I am catching up with this truly luxurious face spritz. It really refreshes the face, and moisturizes it too. With the seasonal change I find myself going off face oils and just using face cream and this mist for most of the days, and it is enough moisture for my dry skin. If I feel I need to up the nourishment, I do either face oil or balm at night, but that is every few days only, not all the time. Although I am using Ormus mist all the time! Several times per day to be exact. After washing my face, before make up, after make up, to refresh myself a few times during the way, to wind down in the evening, you get the idea. I also really love the idea of supercharging product with crystals.
I am really intrigued by these mystical Ormus spheres now and must research them further. (I also found them in Living Libations products) And who does not want rapid repair and regeneration of living tissues? Umm, yes, please! I forgot to mention that it smells amaaazing - it reminds me a lot of Lotus Wei Infinite Love mist, if you like that product, you would love this mist too. I am definitely keeping the bottle once I am done with it too, you probably know I am DIY inclined, so I am sure I will find a use for it. And I am definitely repurchasing the product, even before I run out.
Verdict? I am in love! Don't tell my husband :)
|ISUN Chlorella Algae Mask|
A calming, hydrating gel mask with superfood chlorella algae, sea plants (algae extract) and aloe vera, calms, nourishes, soothes and firms skin while nutrient-rich moisture is absorbed to deeply hydrate skin layers.
To keep mask moist on skin, lightly mist as needed with purified water or for even better results, mist with ISUN Ormus Myst. For acne-sensitive skin, blend Chlorella Algae Mask with ISUN Rhassoul-Neem Mask (50-50). For hyper-sensitive acneic skin, blend plain yogurt with the Chlorella Algae Mask (50-50). For dry skin, blend raw honey with the Chlorella Algae Mask (50-50) for deeper penetrating moisture and skin nourishment. For an exfoliating mask, mix ¼ teaspoon ISUN Rhassoul Exfoliant into the mask before applying. Leave on for about 15 minutes, then add water and gently scrub the mask off. Add more water as needed.
For a greater sensation of cooling, store the mask in a refrigerator (Do not freeze). This works especially well to help remove puffiness from the face and around the eyes.

My experience with it:
This was the product that I came across first from this brand, and I knew I wanted it immediately! I tend to look up ingredients on the products I want immediately, and I am really pleased it is truly natural, without any fillers or other forms of green washing. When I was offered to try it out, I was like the little girl who just candy - it instantly cheers you up to no end! Upon getting the actual mask and trying it on, I was not disappointed, this stuff work and works really well - my skin is really happy afterwards, calmed down, brighter, plumper and really nourished. I find I can skip the moisturiser for the day that I use this mask. Will I want more once I am out? Absolutely!

My experience with it:
This is yet another great product from ISUN, albeit I have to admit I used it the least - I got it at the tail end of winter, so I got a bit less use out of it, but nonetheless, I am loving it. As I already mentioned, I use it as a night moisturiser once or twice per week and I am waking up to happy and plum skin. It says it is good for irritated or sunburned skin, so I am sure this product will come in handy in upcoming summer months too. At first I was a bit concerned about coconut oil in it as it tends to break me out, but I am pleased to say it didn't. Must be a magic combination with other ingredients. I also get reactions (redness) from aloe vera, again, none of it from this product. (I am a lucky gal, I know, I know! Not only I battled dermatitis, but my skin is so sensitive that I react to so many thing, including aloe vera. I mean who reacts to aloe?!).
Verdict? This is a great product, and definitely the one to consider if you want to treat yourself.
So, all in all I am really happy with all these product I tried, so pleased that they worked for me - with skin like mine there is always hold-the-breath moment. But now I know I can use their products with confidence, and I will be back for more for sure. I won't be getting all of the products at once, as that would be kind of expensive, but I will replace at least two out of three products I own. (Due to downsizing the stuff I currently own to my perfect capsule collection. My aim is to have just one open product in each category. At the moment I own too many balms and face oils - I made good progress in other areas, and I am due to update my Project Pan post. Also see my two cents on downsizing - I am not sure where it is taking me as a blogger, but that is what I want to do. Aimless consumerism drives me crazy. But that is another story for another time).
So that is all for now my dear friends! Have you tried anything from ISUN Skincare? What is your favorite product? Please share with me, I really want to know :)

Ta ta for now,
Lots of Love,
Disclaimer; all these products were generously sent to me, for which I am really grateful. (Thanks Tracey, you are a real star!) This does not affect my opinion on them. If anything, I judge a product that was sent to me even more harshly than if I bought it myself. And with these products, I have nothing to nit pick. I got you, boo.
