Mirra, Mirra, on the wall

I was super excited when I was chosen to review the new hair and beauty line by Mirra courtesy of The Kroger Co. and Global Influence.

Mirra Beauty Care products are made with natural ingredients including olive oil, aloe leaf juice, and cranberry, bamboo, honey and chicory root extracts. And trust me I know some of these sound weird to put in these types of products but let me tell you, many of them make the products smell wonderful!

I was sent a multitude of products but I’m going to break them up to talk about them.

Mirra Face and Body ProductsFirst up the beauty products.

Day Cream: Here’s the deal. I have a very oily face and this product was definitely not made for my complexion. I was very moisturizing so if you have normal/dry skin I think this would be great for you. If they came out with a formula made for oily skin I would try it again. In all honesty it made me break out a bit because it really made me oily.

Eye Cream: This I did like. The one area of my face that can get irritated and sometimes drier than the rest of my face is under and to the sides of my eyes. This cream, even when the corners of my eyes were a bit irritated, did not burn or hurt when I put it on. It was actually very soothing and I must say that since using it (2 weeks) the skin around my eyes has not been nearly as sensitive.

Facial Cleanser: This was an exfoliating and detoxifying cleanser with Apricot. I’ve used apricot exfoliating scrubs in the past. I like them very much in terms of getting the dead skin off and making my face super smooth and soft. I liked this cleanser. The scent was very pleasant and actually help invigorate me in the morning. The only think I would change is to add more of the Apricot seeds in oder to help exfoliate more.

Body Wash: Really how can you go wrong with body wash? This was super nourishing for my skin. I actually used it to shave my legs and they came out really smooth. (I usually use conditioner.) I would have like this more if it had more of a scent.

Mirra Hair ProductsAlright, that’s it for the beauty type products. Now onto the hair products.

Shampoo: Here’s the deal. I cannot say enough good things about the shampoo. For starters the smell is WONDERFUL! I don’t know if it’s the Chia and Elder extracts that it draws it’s smell from but I love it. My husband even commented on it. It left my hair feeling clean and soft.

Conditioner: This has the same smell as the shampoo so of course I love it. I don’t use conditioner every day, but every other day. This seemed to keep my hair very well protected and helped make it feel soft and didn’t weigh my hair down as some conditioners can do.

Gel: I just recently started straightening my hair in order to make it look more uniform. (I have straight hair as it is.) I fell in love with this gel. It didn’t take much. I used a little bigger than a pea sized amount and my hair goes past my shoulders. I worked it into my damp hair starting at the back and working my way to the front. Then I blow dried and straightened it. My hair looked super shiny and light.

———-

So there are my thoughts on this batch of products that I was able to try out. All in all I liked more than I disliked. I would definitely buy the eye cream, facial cleanser and all of the hair products.

If you interested in trying out any of the products from Mirra, which also include makeup brushes and additional facial and hair products, they are sold exclusively at the Kroger Family of stores.
