I received a box from KMR Communications with products from two lines to test out and review a couple of months ago, and I intended to post a quick first impression, but the time got away from me, so now I want to go ahead and give you a full review!
The first product line I got to test out was Pirri Elements, a haircare line inspired by the four basic elements of nature — water, fire, air and earth — and the beauty of Italy and the Mediterranean. Pictured here are the three items I tried, Earth’s Balance Daily Conditioner (symbolizing Earth), Mediterraneo Daily Shampoo (Water), and Nature’s Breeze Detangler & Leave-In Conditioner (Wind).
All the products in the Pirri Elements line contain Bergamot, an essential oil that comes from a fruit native to Calabria, Italy, the hometown of the two brothers who created the products. Bergamot oil has a number of benefits — it smells fresh and fantastic, and it helps to hydrate and cleanse your hair without stripping it of its natural oils.
I love the Mediterraneo Daily Shampoo because, unlike other shampoos I’ve used, there weren’t any issues with me using it every day if I wanted to. Most shampoos aren’t great to use on a daily basis because they make your hair look dull and lifeless after stripping out all the natural oils in your hair to cleanse it. But, this shampoo (because of the Bergamot oil) did a fantastic job cleansing while maintaining my hair’s natural bounce and shine.
The Earth’s Balance Daily Conditioner was a perfect complement to the Mediterraneo Daily Shampoo. It was thick and rich without weighing down my hair. It made my hair soft and smooth and easy to work with when blowdrying or using heat to style.
The Nature’s Breeze Detangler & Leave-In Conditioner was my favorite of all the Pirri products I tried. It’s a two-in-one product, which I love — it made my hair easier to work with after washing, and it also provided a leave-in treatment that made my hair soft and healthy. And the smell? Amazing! Sort of citrus-y and floral at the same time.
The Pirri website has price and ordering information on these products. The only downside I see is that they’re not really readily available for you to buy anywhere other than on their website, but I would definitely recommend trying them out, especially the Nature’s Breeze Detangler & Leave-In Conditioner. You get so much product for such a great price, comparable to what you’d pay at a salon but getting way more for your money.
I also got to test out these six products from the Moore Unique skincare line, which is awesome because it was developed by a Houston-based dermatologist who created these products after working with patients and determining the best ingredients and products for helping with their skincare problems.
These three products are the ones I tried out that are best used in the shower. The Bath-Body and Hair Oil is unlike anything I’ve ever used. I definitely suffer from dry skin and scalp, but I never thought to use an oil-based treatment (other than argan oil), especially on my skin. What I liked most about the oil was the glow it gave my skin. I applied it in the shower after washing, with the water turned off, and then I’d pat my body with a washcloth to remove any excess oil and dry a bit before getting dressed. I didn’t even have to use my regular body butter or lotion after showering because my skin felt hydrated and refreshed.
I also liked the Hydrate Facial & Body Wash, more for my body than my face. I used this in the shower in place of my regular body wash, and it provided a really gentle cleanse and helped with some of the redness on my upper arms. I used the Body Scrub Lotion on a less regular basis because it’s more of an exfoliating lotion that is designed to slough off dead, damaged layers of skin and to promote new skin cell growth. It was great to use when I had a big, ugly bruise on my leg that I wanted to get rid of!
The other three products I tried from Moore Unique were designed more specifically for facial skin issues. I really enjoyed the Facial Moisturizer because it is super rich and creamy, great for rehydrating my dry skin, and it also has collagen, which is amazing for helping to fight aging.
I don’t have a ton of acne, so I think the Clear Skin Acne Wash might make a bigger impression on someone who has problem acne, but I did like how gentle it was on my skin. But, since I have dry skin and this is formulated to dry up acne, it probably wasn’t the best combo for me.
The Toner Cream , though, was a good product for me because it addressed uneven skin tone and discoloration, which I suffer from. It did sting a bit when applying, but it left my skin looking more even and glowing.
Overall, I really liked the Moore Unique line of products, especially because they all seem to target exfoliating and rejuvenating skin, which is super important all the time, but definitely in these dry, cold months of fall and winter. Check out the Moore Unique website — it’s full of really useful skincare information and each product has got a full description page with tons of details on what they do and what you should use them for. Plus, these products are sold in Walgreens around the country, so keep your eyes peeled when you’re shopping there, too!
