I love supporting local small businesses and was recently introduced to IQ Natural. IQ Natural is an organic skincare company based out of Portland, Oregon. They sell natural skincare and mineral makeup products. The company has been around for 14 years and is ran by a team of 5. IQ Natural products use the purest ingredients (no chemical or fillers), and are never tested on animals. Most of the products are made in-house.
IQ Natural Clarifying Daily Care Set
I received the Clarifying Daily Care Set. This set includes a cleanser, toner, and lotion. The trio is formulated for acne and blemished skin, clearing blackheads and preventing breakouts. The cleaner is gentle on the skin and won’t dry it out. The toner is soothing and balances out the natural oils in your skin. The lotion is hydrating but does leave a shiny finish. I prefer matte.
I’ve been using these products for under a week and I can already tell the difference. My skin is clear and visibly rejuvenated. The only thing I didn’t like is the smell, which is chemical-like (to my nose). This is probably due to the natural ingredients.
IQ Natural Super Facial
I also received the Super Facial. This mask is like nothing I’ve used before. It simultaneously tightens, brightens, tones, and exfoliates. Ingredients include mud and seaweed. I could do without the smell, but the end results were glowy, fresh-faced skin. This mask might be too much for someone with sensitive skin. It left mine feeling a bit tingly.
IQ Natural Makeup
I really want to try their makeup next. So many gorgeous options. I am a big fan of finishing powders and I love Tarte’s Amazonian powder and Pixi’s Quick Fix powder. IQ Natural has a Setting Veil that I want to try. I might need to do a blog post comparing all three. I’m also adding this mascara and these lip glosses to my wish list.
