(Lab)Grab Yourself Some Silk!

March 8, 2017 40 Comments

Blonde Seeking Ambition

I’ve been collaborating with Silk Therapeutics for a while now, and was so excited when they asked me to try out their BRAND NEW LabGrab line of products. (I’m talking like pre-launch testing. #nextlevel)

If you’re just tuning in, Silk Therapeutics is a Boston-based company that makes skincare products 1) with silk (seriously!) and 2) without harsh chemicals and synthetic junk (seriously!). Many of their products are EWGVerified™ by the Environmental Working Group, which is no easy task. I reviewed their Purely Radiant Daily Hydrating Serum and their Renewing Peel a few weeks back – you can learn more about those products and the company here.

What is LabGrab?

LabGrab, the brand-spankin’ new product line from Silk Therapeutics, has a really awesome story. Dr. Greg Altman, one of the co-founders, tells it much more eloquently here, but I’ll paraphrase: Research and development is incredibly expensive. Naturally, this raises the price when it comes time for consumers to buy a product – particularly when it comes to luxury skincare. However, their scientists often formulate many versions when testing and developing products – but only a few get chosen for the boutique line. What happens to the amazing ones that don’t get picked?

Enter LabGrab.

LabGrab is a line of limited production runs of great skincare products, with a focus more on what’s inside the package than how it’s packaged. (One cool detail of note, though: The inventor of each product’s initials are on the front!) LabGrab encourages feedback from the community – they want to know how you feel about the product, to influence future product development. How cool is that?!

Radiance; I has it

Serum is seriously amazing stuff. I feel a little naked when I forget to put it on! The LabGrab Hydrate/Radiance serum (which is unscented and EWGVerified™, in case you were wondering) only has 8 ingredients… and they make my sensitive skin feel great. I generally use two pumps all over my face and neck and follow with moisturizer (because I am part reptilian). For me, this serum does take a tiny bit longer to absorb than others – but I’m talking tiny – like maybe a minute longer? (Again, this could be because of the whole Lizard Lady thing.)

Eye see you

I’ve also been trying out the LabGrab Cream-Eye Renewal. I was really psyched to give this a go, because eye cream is a NECESSITY for me. (Yes, that is the biggest First World Problem you’ll hear about today.) We all know the skin around your eyes is the thinnest on your body, and I find that it’s often the driest on mine if I don’t moisturize it. I have chronic migraines, which causes me to rub and apply pressure to my eyes a lot. As a way to sort of say “I’m sorry!” to my eyelids, I try to treat them nicely when I can!

I was surprised when I first opened the jar – the cream has an unusual consistency, almost that of whipped butter. As soon as you apply it, though, it absorbs right away. It’s non-greasy, yet extremely hydrating. Like the serum, the Eye Renewal cream is also unscented and EWGVerified™ – this is a huge plus for me as I’ve had a lot of problems in the past with eye creams burning my eyes, even when I’m not rubbing it directly into them.

No makeup (except Chapstick! I literally cracked!), no filter, no problem!

Shut up and take my money!

Where can you buy LabGrab? Well, it doesn’t officially launch until March 9 – except over on HSN!

    Ok, this eye cream sounds like a seriously product. Allergy season is coming and my poor eyes are going to take a beating, so this will help them look a lot better once I start rubbing at them all the time.

    That eye renewal cream sounds especially beneficial for this tired mama. I have super sensitive skin, so chemical free products are an absolute must for me as well.

    I use eye cream from Rodan and Fields, but this one looks really good. I didn’t think of it as a front facing selfie, now I wonder if I have been doing it wrong all this time.

    Silk really has great benefits and it is a big thing here in Asia. For eye creams it is also a must for me although I’ve been lazy for the past few months. Haven’t had time to buy my eye cream. I hope they will ship internationally so I can try it out.

    I am most definitely an eye cream user, so I’m very interested in your thoughts on this product. I have super sensitive skin, and have experienced that “eye cream burn” you mentioned. Finding a good eye cream is so important.
