The issue most of us struggle with when creating the ideal skincare routine is money. Nobody wants to drop hundreds of dollars on products that might not even show results. But we are beginning to realize that good skincare is right under our nose, hidden in the chaotic aisles of your local Walmart. A new, natural, and pleasantly scented skincare and makeup line called Found is hot off the press. This brand is sold exclusively at Walmart, both in-store and online.
The idea behind Found is that it is entirely natural and each product contains at least one ingredient used in ancient skincare rituals. Although the makeup is super cute (and from what I’ve purchased, amazing quality), I’m here for the skincare.
Each skincare product is labeled with one of three steps: cleanse, treat, or hydrate. There are sets containing all three steps with the same scent, but you can mix and match! Each scent is completely unique and refreshing.
At the moment, my favorite Found product is the Kakadu Plum Overnight Sleeping Mask. Now, I’ve never tried any overnight masks because I hate leaving stuff on my face for too long and I hate waking up with the product all over my pillows. But this mask from Found left me pleasantly surprised. It goes on like a moisturizer, drying completely clear. The formula isn’t too thick, so your skin can still breathe and detox overnight, and it doesn’t clog your pores! The first time I used this mask I immediately saw results. My skin felt cleaner and softer, and I noticed my skin looked a little brighter the more I used it. If you’re thinking about using this product I would definitely recommend trying it out for a few minutes before you leave it on overnight. Although Found doesn’t use harsh chemicals, making reactions less likely, it’s always a good idea to test out a new product before you dive right in. If no reaction occurs, lather it on and get some well-deserved rest.
Another highly ranked product from Found is the Moor Mud Face Mask. Similar to the Say Yes! To Tomatoes acne mask I’m always talking about, this one contains more natural ingredients and is cheaper! I’m always going to stand by the Say Yes! mask, but I decided to give this one a go. Immediately after putting it on, I didn’t have a reaction to any of the (natural!) ingredients and left it on for the recommended amount of time. After, my skin didn’t feel tight or like there was still a little product sitting on the surface of my skin. Obviously, I didn’t see immediate results, but after a few more uses my skin started to clear up and have more natural moisture.
For my fellow animal lovers out there, Found has never tested on animals and is almost entirely vegan! The only exceptions are the choice products containing beeswax. Found promises to keep their products natural, unless a synthetic ingredient is needed to preserve the product. Each bottle clearly states just how natural the specific product is, ranging from 90% to 99% — which sounds pretty good to me! I would highly recommend Found to any skincare lovers out there. Start with one product, then another, then all of them! With affordable prices and adorable packaging, I truly think you can’t go wrong with Found.
