Hello there! If you’re just tuning in, head over to the first installment in this series: Part 1 of my TULA products review. I am not a TULA influencer, simply a blogger who has been influenced to try TULA products. Along the way, there are quite a few products that I have fallen in love with, but some are just a big miss. In each installment of this series, I’ll be sharing a few products that I like/love and one product that I am not a fan of, so basically my authentic review. : )
Also, I am sharing a 20% off code here. Again, I am not an influencer for TULA, this is simply the code you get on your account under refer Friends & Family (Full disclosure, I get $20 towards Tula if you use this link).
The sunscreen is a newer TULA product that came out about two and half months ago. The preliminary reviews from bloggers were good (although they almost always are) so I snagged soon after it dropped. My first experience with it was not great, but I realized this was because I used too much of the gel at once. Since then, I use only a tiny bit each time and a little goes a long way. I have not had any sunburns on my face and this has quickly become my go-to sunscreen!
I knew TULA would make a mineral sunscreen, which I prefer ever since I made the switch to safer beauty products a few years ago. It uses minerals to block UVA, UVB, and blue-light rays, rather than chemical blockers like conventional sunscreens. My skin is a bit sensitive and I have found that it reacts best with mineral sunscreen. My only complaint about this sunscreen is that it does make your face shiny if you put makeup on top of it. Not at first glance, but later in the day, it does end up looking more shiny than I would like. I still love it though for the good sun coverage!
Verdict: 8/10, because it doesn’t layer that well with makeup and leaves your face a little more shiny than I prefer.
24/7 Moisturize Hydrating Day & Night Cream
I wouldn’t have picked this product to try myself, but it came in the travel kit and I found myself in a Wisconsin winter a few months ago with extremely dry skin and figured I’d give this moisturizer a whirl. My track record with moisturizers is not good because I have combination skin and about 99% of moisturizers cause my skin to breakout even if my skin is absolutely parched in the winter. So I am very wary and pick with them, always worried that they are going to cause a breakout. I was pleasantly surprised that the TULA moisturizer did not cause any breakouts and it actually left my face feeling moisturized and not oily like many lotions do. Also, the smell is heavenly!! Something between my Grandmother’s Ponds cream and light floral scent.
Verdict: 10/10 Perfect for any skin type and smells divine!
Nourishing & Brightening Hydrogel Masks
Disclaimer: I originally bought these masks when they first came out well before Covid-19. Now the profits from these masks are being used to donate to frontline workers in NY and they are 50% off. I think this is an amazing cause and a wonderful way to give back and I fully support this effort; I wish my own purchase could have given back. I am simply going to be rating the mask on it’s effectiveness, not of the current social mission behind it.
As a mask, these are just not great, unfortunately. I’ve used four of them now and have never noticed any visible difference in my skin after using one. They are supposed to hydrate and moisturize, but again, I really haven’t been able to spot any noticeable difference. They are not even particularly soothing like eye patches I’ve used. I used another mask over the weekend, just to make sure my thoughts were the same and they are, unfortunately, nothing stands out to me about these masks.
Verdict: 2/10, but I would buy them simply to give back to Frontline workers.
Now sound off, have you tried these products? Or are there other TULA products you like? Let me know in the comments
