A Wander Beauty review that tests some of the clean beauty brand’s best-selling skincare and makeup products for life on-the-go.
(Contains affiliate links.)
Hello, gorgeous! Today’s post is centered entirely around Wander Beauty – a clean, cruelty-free brand that delivers multi-functional products for life on-the-go.
And if that all sounds like music to your ears, it did for me as well! So when their team kindly offered to send over an assortment of their best-selling products for testing I jumped at the chance to discover more about the female-owned line and their philosophy.
Wander Beauty’s co-founders Divya Gugnani and Lindsay Ellingson know what it’s like juggling busy schedules and created a brand that offers multi-tasking products that make managing your beauty routine all that much easier. Their products have been featured in several major magazines and even snagged a couple of Allure’s coveted “Best of Beauty” awards.
All that said, dive into a box of Wander Beauty goodies with me below to learn more about some of their most popular products!
The Wander Beauty Mist Connection Essence and Toner
Kicking off this Wander Beauty review I’m starting with the Mist Connection Essence and Toner as that’s where my beauty routine naturally begins.
What immediately stood out to me in a positive way about this mist? It includes two of my favorite powerhouse skincare ingredients: Niacinimide and hyaluronic acid. Keeping my skin nourished and balanced is of the utmost importance to me and these two work hand-in-hand beautifully together to even your skin’s tone, prevent inflammation and build a protective layer against the elements.
- NIACINIMIDE: Evens skin tone, reduces size of pores and improves skin texture
- HYALURONIC ACID: Provides moisture and builds a protective barrier for the skin to retain hydration
- PRIMOSE OIL: Naturally brightens the skin
- AVOCADO OIL: Promotes the production of collagen to renew the skin
SATISFYING AND SOOTHING
In addition to including some seriously fantastic ingredients, the Wander Beauty Mist Connection also has a very calming scent to it that is perfect for pampering yourself at the start of the day or in your nighttime routine. The bottle also has a very fine mister to apply product effectively to the skin without any waste.
The multi-tasking Mist Connection is available at Wander Beauty for $40.
The Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks
There are few things more satisfying than a great eye mask and the Wander Beauty Baggage Claim rose gold masks definitely fit the bill!
The eye masks are cult favorites on Instagram and a 2021 Allure Reader’s Choice winner. They also snagged an Anti-Aging award most recently from Harper’s Bazaar… that I ironically came across in the beauty issue while first trying the masks out for myself.
If you’re one who struggles with a steady sleep schedule, you are not alone! You’ll also know just how important it is to care for and nourish your under-eye area. The masks include a variety of skin nourishing ingredients to care for that most delicate area of your complexion and give self-care where its needed most!
- ALOE LEAF EXTRACT: To sooth and reduce any signs of redness or inflammation
- CALENDULA EXTRACT: To reduce inflammation and soothe the skin
- CAMU CAMU EXTRACT: Contains super ingredient Vitamin C to brighten the skin
- PEPTIDES: To improve your skin’s texture and tone
- 17 AMINO ACIDS: To maintain hydration and texture while promoting an overall healthy appearance
Purchase 5 sets of eye masks for $25 from Wander Beauty.
Wander Beauty On-the-Glow Blush and Illuminator
This dual ended blush and illuminator is a “Best of Beauty” winner by Allure magazine and it’s easy to see why. Both the cream blush and highlighter have such a rich smoothness to them that applies beautifully to the skin.
HEAT AND HUMIDITY APPROVED
Given the temperatures we’ve been having at the scorching ninety degree mark, I went into this product with a bit of skepticism that it would be able to withstand such extreme weather conditions. Ultimately, those concerns were a waste of time! The product indeed does hold up beautifully in the summer heat and doesn’t settle funkily in pores at all. This is pretty remarkable for such a rich, creamy product and highly impressive!
AVAILABLE IN FOUR SHADES
The Wander Beauty blush and illuminator is available in four color options. Find the one that’s most right for you by sharing a selfie to find your best match or scheduling a video chat with a team member.
The dual-ended Blush and Illuminator is $42 at Wander Beauty.
THE UNLASHED VOLUME AND CURL MASCARA
Last but not least is the mascara I SERIOUSLY wish I had discovered sooner because it is frickin’ fabulous! Don’t ask me how I missed this as a Beauty Awards recipient from Allure, Byrdie and Harper’s Bazaar but this is a guaranteed new staple in my makeup collection. The formula applies so cleanly and is virtually un-clumpable while building long lashes that hold a curl all day long!
HEAT AND HUMIDITY APPROVED
Much like the blush and illuminator, I was concerned the extreme summer weather we’ve been experiencing of late would lead to this mascara smearing and smudging throughout the day. In the end, though? That didn’t happen at all! In fact, the mascara is so long-lasting it manages to survive long days in the summer heat followed by powerhouse routines at the gym. It also holds up in the pool!
As if being a great and long-lasting mascara isn’t good enough, Wander Beauty’s formulated the product with Vitamin E to nourish and strengthen your lashes.
WAND THAT DEFINES EACH AND EVERY LASH
The curved wand applicator has a rather unique “S” like shape to it that’s perfect for targeting each and every lash — even the most stubborn ones. The staggered bristles grab hold and separate your lashes in a way that wonderful avoids clumps as well as extends your lashes to extreme heights!
