Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics was a brand that I had not heard of prior to trying out these products. Naturally, my curiosity led me to their website to read more about them. The Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics mission is offer a simple, uncomplicated, and non-intimidating approach to beauty. They utilize innovative formulas for the woman who is a multi-tasker, all within earth friendly packaging. Not only do they offer a range of makeup products, they also offer multiple skincare products as well – they truly are a one-stop shop. Their products are specially formulated to feed the skin with essential plant-based nutrients. Many also provide anti-inflammatory benefits and aid in calming the effects of eczema, rosacea, vascular damage, or itchy, inflamed skin. Even better, the products are vegan, paraben free, gluten free, cruelty free, and fragrance free.

As I mentioned, the packaging is earth friendly. It is composed of 100% post consumer ecological material, using vegetable ink, to create a sustainable lifestyle for a better planet. Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics are also highly recognized in the medical community by cancer/burn/trauma surgeons along with the celiac community. There is quite an extensive “About Us” page on their website, so I would encourage you to go read more about them!

Now, let’s take a look at the products… (Note that all prices were taken from their website, which is listed in CAD.)

Hawaiian Highlight – Sky (Top Left) | $26.99 CAD

Camera Ready – Sea (Bottom) | $26.99 CAD

Island Radiance – Surf (Top Right) $26.99 CAD

These powders go beyond setting foundation to deliver plant-based ingredients that nourish the skin while balancing oils and skin PH levels. They contain silky, light-reflective optical diffusing minerals. The universal shades correct and balance the skin’s complexion while minimizing skin imperfections. You can use them alone or to set foundation.

Benefits:

  • Triple milled powder for airbrushed finish
  • Contains anti-inflammatory and calming properties
  • Pressed minerals for easier application and less mess
  • Absorbs excess oils
  • Reflective minerals
  • Very natural finish
  • Great product for teenage skin

I really love these powders! I think these are my favorite item out of the bunch. I loved using the Hawaiian Highlight powder in the shade Sky under my eyes. It’s the perfect touch to offer a bit of brightness, and you can really see the light-reflecting properties of it once it’s onto the skin. I used the Island Radiance powder in the shade Surf to lightly contour and bronze my skin. I set my foundation with the Camera Ready powder in Sea to lock my look in place. The powders didn’t cling onto any dry patches on my skin and they absorbed oils throughout the day nicely. They appear light on the skin, not cakey at all.

Island Eyes Mudshark Mascara | $18.99 CAD

The Island Eyes Mudshark Mascara offers a buildable formula for long, lush, flirty, and fabulous lashes. It contains provitamin B5 and coconut oil that bind to the lashes to plump while rapidly absorbing to give deep hydration, conditioning, and hold moisture. The formula is also enriched with rosehip, green tea, and grapeseed to nourish. Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics also says that the black, glossy richness of the mascara would allow you to use it as a liquid liner (you’ll just need an angled brush to apply) and that the formula is ideal for contact lenses and sensitive eyes.

The brush is a fairly standard and traditional mascara brush. The packaging pulls much of the product off of the brush before you apply, so you won’t notice any gooping or clumps of mascara onto your brush. The formula is rather dry, one of the drier mascaras I’ve tried. In my opinion, drier mascaras lead to less clumping, and that rang true for this mascara. It is buildable and the formula allows it to keep separation, even with multiple layers. I haven’t tried it as a liquid liner so I can’t attest to that claim. I do think this mascara is perfect for lower lashes though! No transfer, smudging, or raccoon eyes whatsoever!

Purely Tinted Moisturizer – Tanned | $27.99 CAD

The Purely Tinted Moisturizer is a sheer, airy, lightweight water-based product that nourishes the skin with essential vitamins. It is infused with green tea, rosehip, and grapeseed. It aims to counter balance the appearance of redness, even out the skin tone, and leave a subtle luminous glow all while boosting collagen production.

Benefits:

  • Improves skin health and reduces inflammation
  • Provides potent environmental protection from free radical damage
  • Increase skin oxygen
  • Calming plant-based enzymes
  • Breathable fluid
  • Non-chemical sunscreen
  • Precise color match
  • Recognized by plastic surgeons/dermatologists

It comes in three shades: Naked (ivory/fair), Beach Glow (light to medium with light golden undertones), and Tanned (medium to tan with olive undertones). The shade that I have is Tanned. Unfortunately, it is too dark for me, as I am a fair skin tone, but the formula does blend into the skin nicely. It offers light coverage. If you’re into natural makeup, you would probably want to opt for the tinted moisturizer over the foundation.

Island Paradise Skin Perfecting Primer | $29.99 CAD

This primer contains plant derived extracts to create a multi-action formula that when blended together, acts as an instant filter, creating a diffused, soft-focused radiance that blurs flaws and shrinks pores. The lightweight, whipped veil is a carrier of nutrients like cucumber, to tighten pores and reduce dark circles. It also contains white tea which replenishes firmness and repairs sun damage. It contains coconut oil as well, a tropical treasure for anti-aging and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid boosts collagen, increases moisture, and leaves skin feeling refreshed and glowing. Use this product before your makeup to reduce fine lines, redness, and even your skin tone.

Benefits:

  • Unisex product
  • Witch hazel locks in hydration
  • White tea reduces wrinkles, eliminates sun damage, and replenishes firmness
  • Cucumber tightens pores, reduces redness
  • Sodium hyaluronic acid boosts collagen and elasticity
  • Coconut oil aids in premature aging

The primer appears to be a tan shade when you squeeze it out of the tube, but don’t worry as it rubs into the skin and goes on clear. It leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. It does blur your pores, leaving the perfect canvas to apply foundation on top of. It also helps in the longevity of your foundation wear. This is a nice primer. I enjoyed it!

Island Nights | $27.99 CAD

This product is a whipped marshmallow skin treatment that works while you sleep. It is filled with strong natural anti-oxidants that kill bacteria, allowing a breathable barrier over the effected area. It’s loaded with anti-inflammatory benefits as well, like cucumber, which decreases water retention and reduces puffy eyes. Witch hazel aids in calming acne and itchy skin from bug bites, sunburn, psoriasis, and eczema. Hyaluronic acid boosts collagen and elasticity.

Benefits:

  • Unisex product
  • Improves skin health
  • Reduces puffiness
  • Brightens under eyes
  • Soothes and calms acne, sunburn rosacea, bug bites, cold sores
  • Tea tree oil aids in healing acne, lightens sun spots, and is a natural antiseptic
  • Tightens pores and lightens dark circles
  • Delivers nutrients to damaged tissue

I haven’t been using this product long enough to speak to the long-term benefits. However, it makes my skin feel nice and smooth when applied. I’ll need to play around with this product more, but I even used it sort of as an “under eye” primer before applying makeup, and I really enjoyed using it that way, too.

Island Goddess Prep, Prime & Powder – Sand & Sea | $26.99

This liquid foundation goes beyond a foundation. It aids in minimizing flaws, reducing excess shine, diminishing fine lines, and evening out skin tone. It’s designed to give an airbrushed finish and contains light reflective optically diffusing minerals that burst to a powder to control oil and minimize pores.

Benefits:

  • Improves skin health and reduces inflammation
  • Provides potent environmental protection from free radical damage
  • Calming plant-based enzymes
  • 3-in-1 treatment
  • Smooth, silky airbrushed powder finish
  • Reduces shine
  • Non-chemical sunscreen
  • Waterproof
  • Recognize by plastic surgeons/dermatologists

This foundation comes in five shades: Ocean Surf (ivory with warm tones), Sand Bar (medium beige tones), Nude Beach (golden warm tones), Sand & Sea (honey beige tones), and Sea Breeze (tanned, ethnic background). The shade I have is Sand & Sea, which is far too dark for me. However, I could feel the liquid-to-powder finish when I rubbed it onto my arm. It appears to offer a medium coverage that is buildable without looking heavy on the skin.

Skin Care Cover Foundation – Brown Beauty | $26.99

This skin treatment protects and performs like a second skin. The waterproof, opaque formula not only conceals dark circles, rosacea, eczema, acne, and tattoos, but will conceal medical conditions and scarring. It’s infused with green tea, rosehip, and grapeseed to increase oxygen and aids in the healing of damaged or blemished skin, as well as radiation burns.

Benefits:

  • Improves skin health and reduces inflammation
  • Provides potent environmental protection from free radical damage
  • Increases skin oxygen
  • Calming plant-based enzymes
  • Non-chemical sunscreen
  • Waterproof
  • Conceals any skin condition/scarring/tattoos

Hawaiian Cleanse | $28.99

This cleanser detoxifies, energizes, and boosts cell turnover, removing dead skin cells and improving skin quality. This foaming cleanser reduces the effects of environmental damage and promotes healing. It’s perfect for sensitive skin, too!

Benefits:

  • Foaming formula
  • Provides potent environmental protection
  • Detoxifies skin
  • Super plant-based science
  • Removes makeup
  • Balances oils and PH levels
  • Treats psoriasis and dandruff as a shampoo
  • Aids in diaper rash
  • Can be used as a foaming body wash

First of all, this cleanser smells amazing. It has a citrus scent and I just love it. Using it in the morning, it’s definitely an invigorating product. I used it at night and like it just as much then. It’s light and doesn’t leave my skin feeling stripped of moisture. It also removes any last traces of makeup from the day perfectly. I adore this product! Definitely a 5 star product.

Island Moisture | $28.99 CAD

This moisturizer detoxifies, energizes, and boosts cell turnover to remove dead skin cells and improve the quality of your skin. It’s suitable for sensitive skin and aids in the treatment of rashes and eczema, too. It provides incredible results for burned and scarred skin or for cancer patients undergoing treatment who suffer from radiation burns.

Benefits:

  • Super plant-based science
  • Improves skin health and reduces inflammation
  • Provides potent environmental protection
  • Increases skin oxygen
  • Diminishes acne, scarring, and hyper-pigmentation

This moisturizer has the same amazing smell as the cleanser previously mentioned – so I loved that at first whiff! It’s not too thick and heavy, but not too light that it doesn’t provide enough moisture. I find that this product can be used both day and night, and be equally as effective. It’s great at healing up dry patches on the skin, and you can even use it on other parts of your body. I look forward to seeing some long-term benefits from using this product!
