B. Kamins Review

I have some products to tell you about from B. Kamins that you are going to love! I was allowed to review 3 of their products and here are the three that I reviewed recently:

1. Vegetable Cleanser
2. Diatomamus Earth Mask
3. Bio Maple Eye Cream

The Vegetable Cleanser is used primarily to gently cleanse and remove face and eye makeup while maintaining moisture balance in the skin. You can use this either as a makeup remover on eyes and face or as a cleanser and do it all at once. I love that it is made with such gentle ingredients that even someone with sensitive skin can use this product.

If you have dry skin this cleanser will help retain the moisture in your face so it won't be so dried out. Neatest thing I found out about this cleanser is that it can be used to shave with! Wow, who would have ever thought that you could use a product for so many diverse things! They also recommend this product for people who have had post laser surgery and microdermabrasion because it is so gentle on the skin!

Next, I tried the Earth Mask as you can see from this picture. It does not take much to completely cover your face. This is also for dry skin and people who have sensitive skin. This mask will exfoliate, cool and calm your skin. I left the mask on for about 10 minutes and then washed off with warm water. I used it twice a week to help keep my face smooth, brighter, firmer and just healthier looking. It has some vitamins in it to help retain the moisture in your skin.

If you notice, I generally gravitate towards products that are for dry skin and that help me retain what little bit of moisture I have. My skin is very dry due to my thyroid condition, the fact that I don't drink enough fluids and I just have a tendency to lean towards dry skin anyway. So, I need all the help I can get with products that help me with that problem. Along with that the minerals in this mask help me maintain a healthy natural glow!

Lastly, let me give you some information on the Bio-Maple Eye Cream. Oh, by the way, the Maple line is intended for people like me who have dry skin.

So, you may need something totally different than what they sent me. They ask you ahead of time what skin type you are and match you to the line that will most help you and mine is the one that contains Maple. This soothing eye cream helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while moisturizing and firming the delicate skin around the eyes.

It will also help with the dark circles and puffiness under your eyes. Neat thing about this eye cream is that it can be reapplied over your makeup for touch ups! Now, how many eye creams can do that?

Oh, and you can use it on your eyelids! I would be afraid to do that with some eye creams because they can burn when putting them on that delicate part of your eye.

I don't know if you use some of the other brands or even stores that give you reward points for either buying at their stores or products that give you points for buying just their products but B. Kamins is one of those companies who does offer those loyalty points. That gives you free shipping, free samples, you can get free products by redeeming your points and special offers to members. I do belong to several of these type programs and they are worth it because I get free samples and free products that I can try before buying in case they don't work and its not a good fit for me.

B.Kamins has so many other products besides the ones I just talked about. They have Acne Skincare, Tinted Moisturizers, Menopausal Skincare Solutions, Skincare Solutions for Men, Aging Solutions and Soothing Solutions. They also have a 7 step program you can use called Beyond Botox so that you don't have to use Botox or surgery to get good results.

Now for the little history part or About Us if you want to call it that. I just like to know who I am buying my products from and what their philosophy in life is so I research it a little until I know what made them what they are today.

As always, I quote from their site so no misunderstandings occur:
