"Guys, toner isn’t pointless! We promise toning is actually a crucial step in a well-developed skincare routine – you just have to use the right one. Toning is one of those basic steps that can change your complexion and even enhance the effectiveness of the products you’re currently using, like your serums and moisturizers. This applies whether you’re currently using a toner in your regimen and even if you’re not.

The main role toning plays in your skincare routine is one, to replenish your skin with the hydration it may have lost during the cleansing stage and two, to prep your skin for the products ahead. This means your toner should not be a harsh astringent (you know those old school ones that make your skin feel clean…but also tight and stripped) and the formula also should not contain alcohol. These kinds of toners are basically counter-intuitive and cannot only leave your skin feeling uncomfortable but you, by default, are making your products that come next in your routine have to work extra hard.

The other benefit to using a good toner is that it can remove any excess dirt that your cleanser might have missed. This is exactly why we fell in love with Mogi Mousse’s Facial Toner. Not only is it hydrating, but there’s also always extra grime on our cotton pad that we’re so thankful didn’t just sit on top of our skin all day (or night) long. When using this product, we make sure to tone down our necks (front and back) as well as our decolletage. We basically keep swiping until the cotton pad is dry. Mogi Mousse is all about plant-powered products and you can’t tell us that these ingredients don’t give you tingles. This toner contains sandalwood water, lemongrass, and lavender oil. It’s perfectly unisex and is also vegan. Such an amazing toner to try if you’re looking for a new one."

Raw Plant Powered Skincare

A Review By Bianca


This is a brand I have been crushing on and I had to give you all the deets!!! MOGI MOUSSE is 100% plant powered raw skincare that caters to normal to dry and extra dry, sensitive and/or maturing skin. The 'CLAY MASK' firms, tightens, refines and rejuvenates leaving your skin nourished, toned and radiant. The 'FACIAL TONER' hydrates, replenishes, restores and has an antiseptic quality to treat rashes, acne, and blackheads. The entire line is natural, vegan, organic and cruelty-free. MOGI MOUSSE never uses any animal products, parabens, phthalates, fragrances, fillers, gluten, GMO, dyes or any other kind of synthetics or chemicals. This powerhouse skincare line addresses an obscene amount of problematic concerns which I'll list below:

Dry Skin - Dry Hair - Skin Peeling - Insect Bites - Itchy Skin - Skin Blemishes - Scars - Dark Spots - Wrinkles - Age Spots - Dark Circles - Frost Bite - Burns - Razor Burn - Cracked, Tough, Rough Skin - Damaged Skin Tissue from Radiation - Skin Allergies - Rashes - Diaper Rash - Eczema, Dermatitis, Psoriasis - Stretch Marks - Cellulite - Fungal Infections - Skin Inflammation

Finding Silver Linings


"I’m usually a little weary about trying out skincare since I have pretty sensitive skin, but  this line is all plant based (no chemicals at all), so I took the plunge.  This was just the month to do it!  Before I butcher the fascinating story behind the brand, click here to read it from their site.  Here’s an excerpt about the products:

MOGI MOUSSE® is a handcrafted 100% plant powered and raw skincare line, especially beneficial for individuals with normal to dry and extra dry, sensitive and/or maturing skin. MOGI MOUSSE® assists in treating many skin conditions. We do not use any animal products, parabens, phthalates, fillers, gluten, dyes or any kind of other synthetics or chemicals. MOGI MOUSSE® products are for individuals, like creator Gisela Alvarez, who have been left feeling frustrated and disappointed with the lack of results from overpriced and chemically filled skin care products. Our skincare is for anyone and everyone who would like their skin to feel and look healthy with the security of knowing that the products you are applying to your face and body are completely natural, organic, vegan and cruelty-free. MOGI MOUSSE® is made in small batches to guarantee the highest quality skincare.

When I unboxed these, I almost didn’t even want to use them because I didn’t want to disturb the gorgeous packaging.  I love the minimalist, rustic spa vibe.

All of the jars are glass.  They feel sturdy and look higher quality than cheap plastic jars.  The toner came wrapped in white muslin fabric and wrapped in twine.  It seriously took me days before I allowed myself to open it.

Usually toner strips my skin of all moisture but this actually left my face feeling soft, not squeaky.

I love me a good mask. This was the first powdered mask I’ve ever tried so I was excited for it!  I mixed the powder with the little scoop that came in the box with warm water.  Once it hardened up, I rinsed the mask off and the first thing I noticed was the smoothness of my skin.  The fine lines in my forehead seemed less visible and my pores were almost not detectable.  This may be my favorite product from the brand.

Next up is the sugar scrub.  You guys, this stuff is phenomenal too.  The sugar and the essential oils made my skin so smooth!  I used it on my legs before shaving and definitely got a much closer shave than usual.

The last product I reviewed, is the body butter.  Ugh, I love body butters.  Regular creams and lotions are too runny and my skin feels dry about an hour after I put it on.  This formula is so thick yet somehow not greasy.  The scent is refreshing and citrus-y.  My husband said it reminded him of fruit loops.  I put this on after the shower before bed and my skin is hydrated when I wake up.

If you’re in the market for some new skincare and want to go the vegan organic route, this is one stop shopping.  Check out They sell a baby line as well.  This would make such a chic baby shower gift!"
