Principal Secret Botanical Line?

Has anyone tried this yet? If so, is it anything at all like her original line (which was the best in my opinion!)

Re: Principal Secret Botanical Line?

   I loved the original line with the pink lids.

   The botanical line, after a week of use, stung terribly and made my skin itchy. It caused a wide red band (about an inch in width) on my neck and redness on my cheekbones that were painful and took about 10 days to go away.

   That was about 4 months ago, and to this day my skin itches and stings when I perspire or if I go, oh maybe, 12 hours without washing my face.

   Obviously, my skin has not fully recovered.

   BTW, I am 62, post menopausal, hmmm, what else...and very fair skinned. It actually has been a bit traumatic.

   Oh, also, the day and night creams leave the skin sticky feeling. Neither of my sisters wanted my leftover products because of the stickiness. I don't wear makeup so I don't know how the stickiness would impact your makeup application.

I have used the REclaim line with some of the original line for about 10 years! I was so excited to try the botanical line, but had a similar experience to the other poster. rash, very bad. I sent it back. 

sticking to the Reclaim.

Re: Principal Secret Botanical Line?

I'm also a Principal Secret fan and love her Original line and have been disappointed to see a few of the products from this line discontinued, due to her Reclaim line being promoted and now her Botanical line.

 

I have incorporated a few of the Reclaim products into my skincare routine and am pleased with them.

 

As far as her Botanical line, I did give a few of the products a try, one being the facial cleanser, and I found it to be drying to my skin, so I stay away from any products in this line.

My experience with the Botanical line was similar sensitivity as noted by others.  I'm happy with the regular Reclaim but last winter I was having some trouble with the items I needed being out of stock.  I tried the TULA discovery kit and it reminds me a lot of the original Principal Secret products.  Ratings are good for this line, too.

Re: Principal Secret Botanical Line?

Loved the original line and the advanced one but the Botanical was brutal on my skin and hated the earthy scent.Really irritated my skin. I have a feeling it was a flop as I never see it on TV anymore.

Update on my VP Botanical nightmare: washing with Cetaphil and toning with witch hazel has cured me!

Re: Principal Secret Botanical Line?

I am also  a user of principal secret and have had no problems w/the botanical line; however, I am thinking of changing over to boots #7 as the principal line's shippping costs are very high; does anyone have an opinion on boots skin care line?  tks.

I'm another who longs for the original Principal Secret with the pink-ish tops. I miss them so much!

Re: Principal Secret Botanical Line?

I too loved the ORIGINAL line, and was not a fan of the Reclaim line.  Is anything from the Original line even available?
