I know, this review was due yesterday, but when one lives on the countryside and there’s lightning and thunder, the internett has this funny way of saying “Nope, nothing to do here!” Which results in one helpless k-beautyblogger, to make a semi long story short.
Anyway! Thank you for your patience, let’s just dive right in to this saucy flower power wonder!
So, Jolse was so kind as to pick me as one of their 40 peeps to review this product, which makes me one lucky motherducker, seeing as I’ve been eyeballing this product pretty hard for a long time, but never really wanted to spend a lot of money on a product I was on the fence about, and I have to say, well worth the wait, and I’m kinda sorry I didn’t get it myself, so if you’re on the fence about it yourself, read on!
Anyway, I’ve tested this awesome facesauce, so I’ll just go on and tell you about it!
Name: May Coop Raw Sauce
Product: Toner, Emulsion and Essence ( A triple threat right here)
Good For: Providing moisture, protecting skin against free radicals.
The size of Acer maple water compound particles is similar to that of the human body fluid, which makes it easy for the sauce to smear deeply into the skin.
Natural fructose in Acer maple water, called ‘MSE’ by MAY COOP, prevents moisture evaporation like glycerin.
Fructan powder provides vitalizing nutrition to the skin, Nature701 Complex moisturizes the skin with various effects, and Organic G Complex strengthens the tired skin with stability. (Description from Jolse)
It’s clean, and very well executed, just like the moisturizer I’ve tried before from May Coop you get the feeling that they want the product to speak for itself, simple lines and natural. I really like the fact that the bottle is made of glass, just to make it a tad bit more exclusive, with that being said, I’m not sure how travel friendly a long glass bottle is when it comes to traveling.
The classic box it comes in that has this wood pattern on it is funny considering that it’s 93% acer maple tree sap in this bad boy. Or maybe I just find it funny. A good sense of humor never was my strong suit.
Texture & Smell:
Is it a essence, is it a toner, is it an emulsion? No, It’s sauce!
The way I would describe it is as a thick toner, and a perfect essence/emulsion hybrid, but we’ll just go with sauce, much easier.
It spreads nice and evenly, like a sauce should!
First time I tapped out some magic from the bottle I had this immediate fear that it was gonna be a sticky smelly mess, but then again, we all love a good surprise!
It’s a bit tacky before it soaks in, but what do you expect when dealing with raw sauce?
It’s a bit on the slow side when finding it’s way deep down to your skin, but it’s worth the wait, I usually just slap it on, do a little jiggle wiggle dance and fix my hair while waiting for it to do it’s thing.
Again, a bit on the sticky side, but considering it’s not the last step of the skincare routine, it’s really not that big of a deal.
Scent wise I have to say, it’s something to get used to, It’s not one of my favorite scents, basically because I feel that my nose is being held hostage in a field of flowers, and there’s no way to escape. But if you’re into flowery scents, then this will probably be your new favourite to sniff.
Cleanse-Tone-Slap some sauce on!
Yeah I know, keeping it simple over here. I just apply it with my hands, I find it more manageable to control the amount of product this way, and disperse it evenly, but if you prefer, cotton pads will also work wonders!
My thoughts on this product?
I have to say, the first week I didn’t like it what so ever, the scent was so overbearing I just could not for the love of me enjoy the skin benefits it provided, because trust me, this sauce is golden. It really does the job when it comes to hydration, and gives the skin a dewy look. As for the whole protecting from the scary superbad damaging free-radicals I have no clue, haven’t really talked to them that much, so yeah.
But for me, this is one sweet sauce I’m not gonna burn while stirring!
Hopefully this will have given you some insight on this, so I’ll just move along to my favourite part of these posts. Yes darlings, you guessed it, it’s rating time!
