Never Grow Up, well at least by a Perfectly Posh line where its motto is to “Stay forever young!”. Of course, everyone would like to stay forever young, be like Peter Pan and never grow up. Unfortunately, father time and mother nature act as parents reminding us children that eventually, we all have to grow up.
I gave myself a Perfectly Posh skincare treatment by the Never Grow Up line, intermixed with complimentary lines to the Never Grow Up theory. I called it the Peter Pan Facial.
Beginning with the Bright Young Thang face wash, I performed a double cleanse. The first cleanse was a good awakening to my senses with the spicy aroma of ginseng floating around the air. The second cleanse awakened my skin with the energizing caffeine ingredient. A nice clean scent, accompanied by an invigorating cleanse. I was pleasantly surprised to notice that this cleanse was a combination of a milky cleanser and a foaming gel cleanser. It was moisturizing on my skin and still offered the squeaky clean feel afterwards. A little bit of this face wash goes a long ways so you get more usage per your dollar amount spent.

After the face wash comes the exfoliation and in this case, I used the Pore Chores as both the exfoliator and the face mask. I chose to use this one product as a dynamic duo because it is time effective and has the capability to do both. With the purifying clays, citrus ingredient from the Bergamot oil and lactic acid, this face mask, detoxified my skin and also helped to exfoliate the skin from the acids by eating away dead skin cells.
When I first put on the mask, I felt a warm tingling which is a common side effect from incorporating AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) into a product. After about 30 seconds the warm tingling subdued and I slowly started to feel the Kaolin and Illite clays take over by firming and tightening my skin.
As the face mask became more dry, my face became more tight and firm. I rubbed my fingers over the face mask and it was like a dry layer of second skin, not one part of the mask transferred onto my finger. After only about 7 minutes, the mask was completely dry and I took it off with a warm wet towel. My skin had a radiant, even tone look. The look I would expect to have after an exfoliation.
I would recommend using this face mask no more than 2x per week because of how active the ingredients are, it could possibly cause the skin to become irritated. As with any clay mask, make sure to keep the lid sealed tight in between uses so the air won’t harden the clay.

Next step for the Peter Pan Facial was the application of the Never Grow Up Anti-Aging Serum. I was not fond of the scent as I was applying the serum to my skin. It is strong in lavender which over the past 20 years of using it on different skin types has become one of my least favorite scents. Although I am not a big fan of the scent of lavender, I am a big fan of its benefits for the skin. Bypassing the scent, I liked the fluidity of application, it applied quick and fast onto my skin. However, once when it dried on my skin, it created a tacky texture and felt like it was just resting on my skin, sticky like how soda pop feels when it has touched the skin. It did create radiance on my skin which I liked but I would consider this a gel than more of a serum.

Following the serum, I then applied the Dawn On Me Daytime Facial Oil. Facial oils are one of my favorite products. Not too many companies add face oils into their product lines and I respect the ones that do. I use a face oil on my skin everyday. Being that I live in the desert and the air is very dry, the face oils add the moisture that I need to my skin. I was really excited for this step in my facial. I fell in love with the scent right away when I started to apply it on my skin. The Citrus scent of lime is soft, not overbearing, as well as the ginger.
This facial oil has an accumulation of 15 oils. That is very impressive and very hard to do when formulating a face oil. The color of the face oil is almost transparent as if it were just one single oil. It is a very light-weight oil that does not go on heavy or thick and this is where I want the face oil to shine, as in rise high in the stars and it does not. Similar to the serum, it just rests on the skin. I didn’t feel it penetrating the skin that I would like a face oil to do. It creates the added shine that an oil naturally does but it didn’t create the ultra-moisturizing nourishment to the skin that an oil should do. With all the wonderful anti-aging oils within the formulation of the product, I would’ve liked to have less of a slick application on my skin and more suppleness for my skin.

The last step to this Peter Pan Facial was the Never Grow Up Anti-Aging Face Crème. I liked the scent of this face cream, it brought me back to my childhood days when my grandmother would allow me to have a piece of her black licorice. It is blended perfectly with citrus, floral and wood scents. Coconut fruit juice takes place of the water and the rich moisture of shea butter are ideal for hydrating and moisturizing the skin. It is a thin cream with a powerful punch because it delivers a knockout performance on the skin, not too heavy and not thin. My skin didn’t have any extra residue on the skin which comes with a lot of ultra-moisturizing skin care creams. The only reason I cannot give this great product 5 stars is because it does not come with a reusable applicator to retrieve the product out of its container.

Perfectly Posh is a fun skin care line. I always enjoy reading the names for each product. Very creative and a good play on words and a good play on sayings, phrases, and mottos. It makes me feel like I’m reliving certain eras and trends. When I read, Never Grow Up, I automatically knew that these products were going to be anti-aging products without even reading the ingredients list and that is what I love about Perfectly Posh, the names playfully speak for themselves. This Peter Pan Facial was fun because it made me feel like I did never want to grow up and just “stay forever young!”.
