Vain Pursuits Natural Personalized Skin Care: My First Impression

**press sample/affiliate links/promo link**

Vain Pursuits creates personalized skin care from high quality, natural ingredients, just for you. 


You begin by visiting the Vain Pursuits main page and take a quiz that tells them about you, your skin and a little about your lifestyle so that they can get a good idea about what to create just for you. I think that the quiz took me less than five minutes. 

Based on the answers to your quiz questions a skin care routine is made up, packaged and sent to you. 


I received a set of three mini products, packed in a little rustic paper box with a label with my name on it. Inside, a rustic paper envelope with three cards, each one detailing the main ingredients in each product and why they were included in each product. 

The products I received are a Cleanser, Toner and a Facial Moisturizing Cream. Each product has a label with my name on it and the type number and product name. All of the lovely little details certainly makes receiving and using this skin care feel like an experience. 


Beginning with the Cleanser: A clear liquid that in my formula contains essential oils of grapefruit and mint. This cleanser foams up a bit and feels cool and refreshing as I am using it. I could find myself really loving this stuff during the Dog Days of an Arizona Summer. It seems to be doing a nice job of removing my day and makeup left behind after I use my makeup remover wipe. My skin feels clean and soft after use. I haven't been using it long enough to ascertain if it is drying or stripping, but so far, it doesn't feel so. I can say that this is a cleanser I will work to keep out of my eyes. I can feel the vapors of the mint and I know that if it were to get into my eyes, they would not be too pleased. I like to use this cleanser with my sonic facial cleansing device. 

Next we have the Toner: With cucumber, chamomile and aloe extracts this unscented toner feels refreshing when sprayed on a cotton square and run softly across my skin. Toner is not a normal part of my skin care routine, I just don't feel that it is necessary but if it comes with a skin care routine, I'm happy to put it to use. 

The Facial Moisturizer is a thick, rich, very moisturizing cream that was customized for my very dry skin. Packed with aloe, avocado, jojoba and grape seed oils, vegetable glycerine, shea butter and plant squalane and lightly perfumed with lavender and eucalyptus. Included, because I don't sleep all that well. A little bit of this cream goes a long way and spreads nicely across the skin and with a little gentle massaging, sinks in. It initially leaves a bit of a sheen on the surface of my skin but within an hour or so it has fully sunk in and my skin just feels so soft! And it feels that way, the next morning. This cream is not for use under makeup. 


Here is a photograph of the Facial Moisturizer and the Cleanser. The cleanser is a little hard to see, but you should be able to see the little bubbles. 

I have not been using this skin care trio long enough to see any true results or give it a full throated endorsement but I can say that my first impression, based on my first couple of uses is very favorable. I can say that these are well made products and recommend that you give Vain Pursuits a try.

  1. This trio sounds awesome. I like the idea behind the company making everything personalized. Who doesn't want skincare with their name on it?

  3. I'm also trying this service, and, no surprise, my items are different formulations completely! I hadn't thought to use my cleanser with my Soniclean, but now I will! Is it geeky that I'm excited about that? Lol

  6. Yeah, the cleanser vapors are a bit of an issue, and I have to be careful... I don't know if it stings, for certain, yet. I've been lucky but with my sensitive eyes it's only a meter of time! lol I do like the personalized formulas and the good ingredients, tho. And how nice my skin feels, too.
