Bona Clara Skincare Review

Bona-clara-skincare

Press Sample: Bona Clara skincare is a new brand that focuses on creating skincare that targets your specific needs at your age. They have four different skincare categories based on age (20’s, 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s) that have multiple skincare sets to choose from. I had to resign to the fact that my big 3-0 birthday is right around the corner, I chose to try out the skincare set created for 30 year olds. I was sent the Bona Clara 30’s level 1 that includes a cleanser, toner and moisturizer; it’s their most basic set.

Lets talk packaging. I absolutely loved how Bona Clara packages the skincare, it’s not just tossed in a random brown box. It appeals to the beauty geek in me that likes to look at pretty things.

 

30’s Cleanser

Bona-Clara-Skincare-2

What This Is: This is a cleanser created for someone in their 30’s. The 30’s cleanser is designed to thoroughly cleanse your skin while providing you with great anti-aging benefits. It has fruit enzymes in it to help give a light exfoliation, plus evening primrose and meadowfoam oil to calm, soothe and cleanse the skin.

My Experience: This product really cleansed my skin well, leaving it without a trace of makeup. It was fine around my eye area…no burning. It also didn’t really smell like anything which I like. My only issue with this product is that if you are not careful, the cleanser will find its way out of the tube. Make sure to put the lid back on immediately.

 

30’s Toner

bona-clara-skincare-4

What This Is: The 30’s toner by Bona Clara is Alcohol- Free and full of peptides and antioxidants. After cleansing your skin, make sure to spritz this on your skin to help purify and shrink your pores.

My Experience: I am not a huge toner fan and usually, I skip this step. But I did really like how refreshed my skin felt after using this. I even kept it in my purse for added hydration and to refresh my makeup.

30’s Anti- Aging Treatment Cream

bona-clara-skincare-3

What This Is: Formulated with anti-oxidants, natural exfoliants and prickly pear extract to help skin tone the 30’s treatment cream is meant to keep your skin looking 20 for as long as possible. This cream helps to stimulate collagen and elastin while protecting your skin from daily pollution that can take a toll on your skin.

My Experience: While I think this has great ingredients in it, it didn’t have enough moisture for me. If you have more oily skin and want a lightweight moisturizer that has great anti-aging benefits, you should check this out. I definitely think you need a serum to go along with this product for extra moisture.

Overall Thoughts, Experience, and Rating

I used this product for almost 6 weeks and thought it did a fine job. But I do think that if I was going to re-purchase, I would go for the Level 3 kit which includes a scrub and a serum. Those are essential items for a skincare set in my opinion. I do think they should add the sunscreen to on of their kits, it is just so important.

Rating

Love the cleanser, love the toner….iffy on the moisturizer for my skintype. Love the ingredients.

  • P.S. The nightcream is an amazing substitute at night, for added hydration! Maybe the Level 1 kit, with the night cream is exactly what you need ­čÖé The serum is definitely the powerhouse of the set!
