Mirra Beauty Products - Review and Giveaway

~This giveaway is now closed~


I recently had the opportunity to try out a new line of beauty products from Kroger called Mirra. Mirra products are made with natural ingredients, such as olive oil, aloe leaf juice, cranberry, bamboo, honey, and chicory root extracts. Along with the benefits of these natural ingredients, Mirra products also use proven scientific technologies such as the revolutionary oleosome emulsion technology (which basically means that it delivers long lasting moisture that continues to nourish and protect long after application). By combining quality, natural ingredients with the latest science, Kroger has come up with a line of products that will appeal to many women.

The Mirra line includes shampoos and conditioners, hair styling products, body washes and mists, facial and skin care lotions, cleansers and cleansing cloths, eye firming and age defying creams, and cosmetic brushes. These products can be found in the beauty care aisles exclusively at all stores that are part of the Kroger Co. family.

The Kroger Company along with the Global Influence Network provided me with a gift pack of Mirra products for review. The gift pack included:

1. Mirra Exfoliating & Detoxifying Cleanser
2. Mirra Micro-Remodeling Cream
3. Mirra Hydrating Night Treatment
4. Mirra Daily Smoothing Shampoo
5. Mirra Daily Smoothing Condition
6. Mirra Replenishing Body Wash
7. Mirra Protective Lotion

(Be sure and keep reading - after my review, there will be information on how you can win a similar gift pack of Mirra beauty products)

I have been using these products for about two weeks and I can honestly say I love them all. I tend to have somewhat sensitive skin and all of these products have proven to be very gentle.

*The Exfoliating & Detoxifying facial cleanser contains apricot seeds which help to gently remove dead cells. It really leaves my face feeling so refreshed and clean. The Micro-Remodeling Cream joins aloe and green tea with MATRIXL 3000 to reduce wrinkles, provide skin firmness, and deliver antioxidant properties. A study of MATRIXL 3000 was shown to significantly reduce wrinkle depth and skin roughness while improving skin tone in just two months. While using the cleanser along with the Micro-Remodeling Cream and Hydrating Night Treatment, I have definitely noticed a glowing, healthy complexion.

*The Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner contain aloe extract, wheat protein, and soy protein. I especially love that they are also paraben-free and formaldehyde donor-free. They both have a nice scent.

*The Mirra Replenishing Body Wash is probably one of my favorites from this line. It's made with brazil nut and bamboo & honey extracts which give it the most wonderful scent. It has such a nice rich lather, too.

*The Protective Lotion uses ginger extract and lemongrass to stimulate and invigorate the skin. Oleosomes and olive oils provide skin with immediate moisturization. When I first applied this lotion, I wasn't sure I was going to like it - it felt a little "thin" and almost like it was going to leave my skin feeling a bit greasy. But, after just a few minutes, once the lotion was worked in, I didn't feel that way at all. My skin felt very soft and smooth. Best of all, I have noticed that this lotion has great staying power; the moisturization really does last.

These products were impressive and I will continue using them. It's nice to find such a high quality product that I can pick up while I'm shopping at my neighborhood Kroger store. I love that Mirra combines natural ingredients with proven scientific technologies to give me a product that is not only effective, but, pleasing to use. To learn more about the Mirra line please visit the Kroger website, where you can also find a link for a coupon for $5 off the purchase of two mirra products at Kroger and Kroger banner stores.
