Simplified by The Moms Co. Daily Essentials Box, CTM is a simple and effortless skincare routine to follow, if you’re religiously going to start over your regime!
The beauty world is full of what you should be doing and what works the best for your skin and loads of jargon that most of us can’t understand. Even if you’re quite new or just starting to explore the vast world of skincare, you have come across the classic CTM process.
CTM is a very basic, yet effective skincare routine that involves cleansing, toning and moisturisation. The most impressive point about this whole 3-step golden routine is that it’s short and sweet; doesn’t need you to run around with numerous products or follow up with a lot of steps!
The homegrown beauty brand ‘The Moms Co.’ launched an exclusive skincare box mend for the simple CTM process. A natural, toxin-free daily face care regime, the range contains the three products enriched with Vitamin C, Niacinamide and Hyaluronic Acid. Being locked down again, it was time to restart this regime again religiously with ‘The Daily Skincare Essentials Box’ by The Moms Co.
Malika Sadani, Founder & CEO shares about this simple regime, “A cleansing, toning and moisturizing regime is a great skincare routine for healthy, smooth skin. Cleansing helps remove dirt, pollution and makeup from our face. Toning helps give the skin a boost of hydration and balances the skin’s pH levels. Maintaining the skin’s pH level is very important.”
“If your skin is too acidic, it can lead to breakouts. On the other hand, if your skin is too alkaline, it can lead to dryness. Having the right skin pH level can help avert skin problems and keep your skin healthy in the long run. A skincare routine is incomplete without moisturizer. It locks in moisture protecting the skin from dryness and also keeps the skin healthy and plump”, she further adds.
The Packaging: The Moms Co
The Daily Skincare Essentials Box comes with Natural Vita Rich Face Wash, Natural Daily Face Toner and Natural Vita Rich Face Cream which makes it perfect for those looking to create a natural, toxin-free daily face care regime.
The package is simple with not too much glitz and glam. The clear white looks and feels great while being travel friendly. All of them come in a pump that smoothly and evenly dispenses the product, making it very easy to use.
The Products: The Moms Co
All the products from this line are infused with essential summer ingredients is ideal for those looking for a natural cleansing solution, balancing skin’s pH levels and deeply moisturizing it all.
The first of the three products I tried was the Natural Vita Rich Fash Wash enriched with Vitamins C, B3, Hyaluronic Acid, Neem and Witch Hazel. It is an olive-oil based cleanser. It’s a mild gel-like consistency cleanser that also moisturises your skin making it soft and supple.
I have combination skin with an oily T-zone yet it cleansed my face without over-exfoliating or stripping it off the natural oils. I used it during the day and night, but it never made my skin dry and flaky. It does the required amount of cleansing that your skin needs, leaving your skin fresh and tightened. However, I could still feel my T-zone being oily at certain parts. Hence, if you have actually oily skin, you might want to give this a thought!
The second product was the Daily Face Toner. It is alcohol-free and the soothing effect is simply exhilarating! This toner has Vitamin C, Niacinamide, Green Tea Extract. I loved this product because it just got absorbed into my skin quickly and left a refreshing boost of hydration. The texture is smooth and does the job of a classic toner. If you use this toner right after the cleanser, it does remove the excess oil that was left behind. However, the cleanser needs to be topped off with the toner for better performance.
Finally, the last step of my routine was the Natural Vita Rich Face Cream. This would be more perfect for those who have an affinity for creams. Although the consistency is light and gentle, it took some time to get absorbed into my skin and gave me a warm, tingling feeling. Enriched with Chia Seed Oil, Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, the cream however does lock in the moisture and keeps the skin soft and supple.
The Final Take: The Moms Co
A noteworthy point would be that all of the three products in the range contain Hyaluronic Acid which is a must summer ingredient. The reason the beauty industry loves it so much lies in its seemingly magical ability to retain moisture. “The natural ageing process and exposure to UV radiations from the sun and pollution can decrease its amounts in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is able to hold up to 1,000 times its molecular weight in water, providing the skin with much-needed moisture. When the skin is protected and hydrated, it increases skin cell production, leading to smoother, plumper skin cells. It smoothes the texture of your skin and also helps with fine lines and wrinkles.” Malika shares.
