First Aid Beauty, or FAB, came out recently with a new superfood infused collection called Hello FAB . I’m huge fan of all their skin care products so I was very excited to try these out. What also excites me is some of these products were more make-up geared which makes me think they might be releasing some make-up items in the future. All of these products contain no parabens, harsh chemicals or colorants.
The first product that really grabbed my attention was the Hello FAB 3 in 1 Superfruit Color Correction Cushion. This is supposed to be a “one-step color-correcting cushion with three universal tints to instantly brighten dullness, decrease redness, and even out tone, while hydrating and refreshing skin” as explained on their website. This is probably the product I was most skeptical about as well since it just seemed super gimmicky. Color correcting is supposed to be a targeted placement of color to cancel out imperfections on the skin, so a ‘all over’ color corrector with three different colors swirled together just didn’t seem like something that would really work out in my opinion. After trying the product out a couple of times I do feel like it’s something that could be passed on. If you’re a big fan of very light make-up, I’m thinking tinted moisturizer, and just want a little redness or darkness under the eyes cancelled out without adding the heaviness of a concealer then this could be up your alley. But if you’re used to doing a fuller coverage look and are planning to use concealer then this could easily be a product to pass on. This product worked best right under my eyes and on my cheek area at cancelling out darker circles and some of my redness. Placing it all over my face though just seemed unnecessary.
The first product I actually put in my shopping cart from this collection was the Hello FAB Coconut Skin Smoothie Priming Moisturizer. I talked a little bit about this in my Favorite Winter Skin Care Post as well. I picked this up originally because I was almost out of my Too Faced Hangover Rx primer and since they both were advertised as coconut smoothing primers I was expected them to be similar. I definitely was wrong. If anything I would compare this more to the Becca Backlight Priming Filter. It creates a really pretty glow on the skin that would look beautiful even without makeup. As it is super hydrating it feels more like a moisturizer than a primer. It doesn’t get the tacky feeling that the Too Faced one leaves behind so I don’t believe it does much to keep my make-up on longer but it does create a smooth base to apply it over. I do really enjoy this primer though and think it’s one of the best products from this collection.
The product that really did nothing for me was the Hello FAB Vital Greens Face Mist. I was actually nervous to try this products since it is a green mist.I originally thought it was just a facial mist I could use before putting make-up on so I wasn’t as worried about the color but after looking more into it I realized it’s being marketed as a setting spray. Although the color didn’t alter my make-up at all, you can’t really tell it’s green after spraying it out even on your hand, this product still hasn’t done anything for me. To be honest this is the product I’ve used the least because whenever I want my make-up to really stay on I’m reaching for my Urban Decay All Nighter Spray. This just hasn’t made my make-up last in th
e same way. Every time I use it I notice my make-up fades away from my nose and other places I touch often just as fast as if I didn’t use any sort of setting spray. Another big downside about this product is that the spray comes out very thick. Even if I try to spray this from as far away as possible with my short arms, I find my skin feeling extra wet and seeing droplets of the spray on my skin.
And than lastly my favorite, or tied for favorite with the Coconut Skin Primer, the Hello FAB Caffeine Matcha Wake Up Wipes. This was another product I was scared would be green but they look exactly like any other white make-up wipes. I love to use these in the morning when I’m feeling extra sleepy and don’t have the energy to wash my face (which happens more often than I would like to admit). These are infused with matcha, caffeine, vitamin C, and aloe vera which clam to brighten, cleanse, hydrate and wake up the skin according to FAB’s website. I really do think these wipes do all of the above. They have a great smell to them and create a soft tingling feeling to the skin which helps you feel more awake and ready for the rest of your morning routine. These would be great for traveling or keeping in your purse for those nights when you might not be sleeping with the comfort of your own bathroom beauty products.
All together I was pretty pleased with this whole collection. The design of the packaging honestly made me pass over it on the Sephora website because I didn’t recognize the products at all. I’d be really excited to see what FAB what puts out as full blown make-up products since they always put their own sort of twist to products we know and love.
Have you guys tried any of these products? How did you feel about them?
