Candid Essentials

Candid Essentials

Combines beauty and nature making it the number one product for people who want healthy skin without the added chemicals that may lead to unwarranted side effects. Their creations consist of natural, organic products which are not only pure but also kinder to the skin, and thus kinder to the body on a whole. Each individual ingredient matters to them. They know the role the skin plays as the body’s largest organ, and they strive to ensure that the ingredients they use aren’t promoting harmful chemicals or toxins.

Microdermabrasion By Candid Essentials

Exfoliation is healthy for your skin but, you should also remember that it is also sensitive afterward and it is necessary to protect your “new” skin from the sun.  Wearing sunscreen or avoiding direct sunlight for a few days afterward is highly recommended.

The ingredients in this microdermabrasion are as follows:  Deionized Water, Bauxite, Glyceryl Monosteatate, Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Hemp Seed Oil, Triglycerides, Vegetable Glycerine, Stearic Acid, Vitamin E, Fatty Acid, Phenoxyethanol and Caprylyl Glycol.

Ensure the areas you are planning on using this on are damp prior.  Apply once a week and rub in a rotational pattern.  With microdermabrasions I usually continuously lightly rub until I feel the product is drying.

Not harsh when compared to St. Ives Apricot Facial Scrub but, it feels like it is scrubbing more.  Most facial scrubs contain sand-like ingredients mixed with a gelatinous material (essentially) while this exfoliate feels like a fine grit sandpaper.  Consistent yet, gently removes dead skin and cleans the dermis layer.  Can either wipe off or rinse; I prefer a rinsing off with a good facial cleanser and was able to compliment this microdermabrasion with its cousin facial cleanser by Candid Essentials.  My facial skin feels refreshed, anew, and physically softer.  With only needing to use this once a week the tub is going to last me a long time.  Very pleased overall with this gentle microdermabrasion facial product.

Facial Cleanser By Candid Essentials

After a good exfoliation I like to follow up with a gentle cleansing facial wash.  What set this apart from other facial cleanser I have been using lately is that the container itself is see through so I can actually see what I am putting on my face before I do.  Clean and clear looking from a wonderful blend of the following main ingredients besides the normal -oxyl(s), acid(s), -ine(s), and -ate(s):

Water, Geranium Water, Aloe, Coconut, Witch Hazel, Plant-Based Hyaluronic Acid, Jojoba Oil, Oats, Frankincense Essential Oil, Olive Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Borage Oil, Orange Peel Texture, Oregano Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Gotu Kola Extract, Horsetail Plant Extract, Geranium Extract, and Dandelion Extract

Most Vitamin C based cleansers smell a bit like plastic to me and while this leans in viscosity to it the floral extracts really help this stand out far above the rest.  Only need to use a pea-sized drop and apply to moistened skin massaging in a circular motion.  Rinse clean off and am able to use up to twice daily if need by; I only use this once per day at the end of my very long days.

Light and refreshing cleanser that leaves my skin, neck, and decolletage area clean, smooth, and on its way to being clear of blemishes.  It does a decent job of removing basic make-up but, not the water-proofed ones like mascara and eyeliner; I normally remove my make-up prior to a shower with an actual make-up remover however I wanted to try it out and got the results as stated so just a FYI.

Did not cause me to have any skin irritations either which is always a plus in my book too.  Highly recommend this for those looking for natural and organic facial cleansers free from alcohols, fragrances, and sulfates; cleans and hydrates leaving my skin soft.

LipLoks Chapstick By Candid Essentials

Goes on thick like a gloss vice stick when in comparison.  Recommend storing in the refrigerator to help in their keeping solid; I tend to do this anyways with products that are deemed organic and all natural.  Have a definite light hand when applying if you do not refrigerate or it will smear on.

While the scent and flavor of each is pleasant they are not overbearing due to the most notable “taste” when wearing is the Coconut Oil and Beeswax (both of which are stated to be organic).

Other ingredients:  Organic Castor Seed Oil, Wildcrafted African Shea Butter, Organic Rosehip Seed Oil, Cranberry Seed Oil, and Avocado Oil.

Natural Flavors:

Vivacious Vanilla ~ Smells and tastes like a hyped up sugar cookie

Minty Madness  ~ Spearmint

Passion Punch ~ tastes fake; hard to explain but, it really reminds me of a grape flavored chapstick for kids

Mystic Mint ~ Peppermint

Tantalizing Tangerine ~ By far my favorite

The “No’s”:

No Parabens, No Phthalates, No Petrochemicals, No Sulfates, No Synthetic Dyes, No GMO’s, and No Animal Cruelty.

Each of my kids chose their favorite one and I chose the Minty Madness and Tantalizing Tangerine as mine.  They like the ones I personally do not so, it all worked out but, Vanilla and Punch are off point blank.  These have not made our lips dry out nor become irritated from the oils; they have kept them hydrated and the moisture locked in.


Goes on thick and heavy yet, keeps our lips hydrated.  Great list of natural and organic ingredients and am very happy that there is no petroleum in these.
