Jet lux clean beauty kit, is it worth it?
disclaimer: I was not asked to review this product by Jet.com or given any discounts or free products for my opinion. I paid for this kit and purchased it because I really thought it looked good.
I ordered some of my favorite turmeric ginger tea and Fenugreek seed tea from Jet.com (one of the only places I can find these teas that ships quickly) a couple of weeks ago when I noticed that they now have beauty kits available, a men’s grooming kit it is $35, a fit beauty kit it is $42 and the lux clean beauty kit which is the cheapest (I was shocked that it was the cheapest but yay!) at $28.
Since I have been trying to use more natural products lately, the clean beauty kit caught my eye right away.The products all come in a plain canvas drawstring bag but inside that is a cute little zipper bag, I am thinking I will use it as a on the go makeup bag or something once I use up all of the products.
what comes in the bag?
- Little Barn Apothecary Charcoal + Aloe face cleanser
- MUN Argan oil
- S.W Basics cleanser
- S.W Basics Toner
- Rituals the ritual of Ayurveda natural dry body oil
So is it worth it?
The clean beauty kit costs $28 which means its about $5.60 per product not to bad, considering all of the full size versions of these products on Jet are pretty expensive. The Argan oil is the most expensive at $70 for a 6.76oz bottle and the rest of the products range between $15 and $30 each.
I tried the Little Barn Apothecary Charcoal + Aloe face cleanser before I went to bed, I used about 1 1/2 pumps but really 1 was plenty. It has a almost licorice like scent to me, maybe that’s not it but that’s what it reminded me of for some reason.
I love this cleanser so much! my face feels so soft and for a lack of a better word clean after using it. I really like that my skin doesn’t feel tight and dry like it usually does after using a regular drugstore cleanser.
The next day I decided it was time to give the S.W. Basics cleanser and the S.W. Basics Toner a try. Both the cleanser and the toner had to be applied with cotton balls, so after a quick hunt for the cotton balls I was ready to give it a try.
I do think both of these products are good that being said, I get that they are supposed to be simple ( the cleanser only has 3 ingredients and the toner only has 5 ingredients) but they felt simple if that makes sense. The toner smells SO much of apple cider vinegar that I really had trouble applying it all over my face and the smell lingered for awhile.
On the positive side these are both very gentle products and my face did feel clean after using them so I think they could be a good option for a lot of people. For me though I just hate the smell of apple cider vinegar especially when its on my face!
I kind of feel like maybe a D.I.Y face cleaner and toner could have done just as well as these products and would be a lot cheaper than actually buying the full size version of these.
I used the Argan oil in my hair because I have read that its really good for frizzy hair. but its also really great for your skin and that’s actually what the bottle suggests using it for.
This may be something I need to use for awhile to see all the benefits because I really didn’t notice much difference however I do plan to continue to use this after I wash my hair to add more moisture back to my frizzy curly hair and after I finish straightening my hair.
Personally I wouldn’t pay the $70 dollars for the full size bottle, I am sure it would last for awhile but I just cant see paying that much. I will probably try something much cheaper that has argan oil in it after I finish using this oil. I would love any suggestions on a great product for frizzy curly hair.
Lastly I tried the tiny bottle of Rituals the ritual of Ayurveda natural dry body oil. I am going to start off by saying I had only recently heard of dry oil so I wasn’t really sure what to expect or if I would like it. But o my let me tell you this oil is everything! it doesn’t take very much at all which is good considering how small that bottle is haha.
I use it on my face after using the charcoal +aloe face cleanser everyday now. The dry oil really doesn’t leave my face feeling or looking oily at all, just a tiny bit of a glow which I love. The Scent of this oil is SO good I’m telling you it smells like some kind of yummy dessert or something.
Final thoughts on this kit
so honestly for me the charcoal + aloe cleanser and the dry oil made this clean beauty kit totally worth it. Because otherwise I probably would have never tried either one of these products and they are now something I am going to continue to use.
I will finish using all of the other products as well because none of them where really bad or made my skin breakout. these are just my 2 favorites by far.
These products helped me realize how much I need to take better care of my skin. I always put my skin as a last priority to everything else and its really important that we take care of ourselves. I can already tell a difference in the way my skin feels and looks after just about a week of using these clean beauty products.
Are there any other clean beauty products that are amazing? I would love to hear about them.
