Hey Willa!! My friend has been using your "Zero Shine" moisturizer and is OBSESSED with it. What makes this product so amazing???
Hi!! So glad she loves it as much as we do.
In order to explain the product I want to give you a little background about why we created it in the first place. I'm not sure about you, but I used to be under the impression that the best way to treat my acne was to dry it out entirely, and as a result, I refused to wear moisturizer... I was so wrong. I've learned that the skin will actually produce more oils to compensate for the lack of moisture it gets when you try to dry it out, which often results in acne:-(
We realized @ willa that girls also often resent wearing moisturizer because they believe it will make their skin look greasy/oily. So, we created the mattifying moisturizer (which I am IN LOVE with). After completeing step 1 and 2 (Clear Skin cleanser, and Pore Perfector pads) in the Acne 3 Step, apply a coat of the Zero Shine moisturizer which moisturizes your skin, without making it look shiny:)) It contains jojoba oil (hydrating), aloe leaf juice (soothing, vitamin adding),cranberry fruit extract (free radical protection and antioxidant-adding), lilac extract (controls oil production and reduces inflammation)
I promise, it's worth all the rage.
I noticed you came out with a new acne cleanser. It looks aWesome! But i was wondering if I would be able to use it along with my clarisonic mia. Thanks! keziah
The acne cleanser can be used with your clarisonic (we love 'em), but we suggest pairing the two together every other day or so, or around 3 times per week simply because the clarisonic will intensify the effect of the exfoliator- the acne cleanser is also great on it's own, too:)
What sunscreen do you Use for your body? Summers coming up and i want to Make sure im putting something good in my skin.
I don't mean to toot our own horn or anything... but our sunscreen seriously rocks. We spent a lot of time developing it, and worked with a ton of girls in order to perfect the formulation- we wanted to create a sunscreen that wasn't white, sticky, or oily like most others. And we did!! Our Face the Day sunscreen is SPF 30, and goes on dry (with a light, powdery finish- so cool) and tinted to offset the white zinc. Check it out.
i'M LIVING IN rOMANIA, EUROPE.
I'M INTERESTED in you products for my daughter who is 13 years old.
IS ANY POSSIBILITY TO BUY YOU PRODUCTS from here?
Hi Camelia! Unfortunately, we don't ship internationally. We hope to one day, though! xo
I noticed that the body sunscreen is not listed in the store. IS it gone permanently or will it be coming back sometime soon?
Hi! We're no longer selling Born to Glow, but we'll be coming out with a new body SPF in the future. Stay tuned... xo
Is there a way to purchase the travel items without the bag? The small cleanser and moisturizer make great gifts or samples for close friends.
Hi, We currently don't offer the items without the bag, but this is great to know! Thanks xo
Hi Willa. we all like sunbath and beach. however the strong sunlight will hugely damage our skin because of ULTRA-VIOLEt.i think even the sunscreen with highest spf cannot block ultra-violet,especially when summer time spending most of days on beach. Do you thinnk we should stop that? get tan less frequently?
Hi! Definitely try to avoid the sun when its rays are strongest (between 10 and 4) and always wear a hat/seek shade along with wearing Face the Day
Can you have samples of the acne line? Before i spend all that money i want to see how it works with my skin. ThAnks!
Hi! We don't offer samples at this time but everyone in the office has been using it so it's super gentle and effective on all skin types. Hope that helps :)
Willa, is it ok for guys to use these products, too?
also, let's hang in the city once this thing is properly launched and you can carve out some time from your busy schedule!
Congrats on all the things you guys are doing!
Hi Markus! Yeah of course guys can use willa products. Thanks so much for creating all of the amazing willagirl videos. We love them. See you soon :) xo
How long does it take for the products to work on your skin I love the foaming, tinted spf 30, and the moistures it makes my skin fell soft I love it im happy I became a willagirl.
Hi! You should notice an immediate difference. We're so glad you love the products and to have you as a willagirl :) xo
so I HAVE BEEN BREAKNG OUT LATELY, OILY SKIN SOMEDAYS AND THEN DRY THE NEXT. I LIVE IN COLORADO AND THE DRYNESS IS AWEFUL!! DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR ME OR ANY PRODUCTS YOU RECOMEND?
- tHANKS SO MUCH!
Hi! Sometimes the change of weather requires different products. If you're feeling dry and oily, I would use Start Fresh Foaming Face Wash to cleanse and Step 3 - Zero Shine of the Acne 3 Step for oil control. If you find you're oilier in the summer, use the entire Acne 3 Step. Hope that helps! xo
Hi! When your acne cleanser comes out, can i use it with my clarisONic?
Yes, definitely! xo
hey willa! first off, i havent visited willa.com in a really long time but im so glad i checked back in! it looks great and i promise i feel like i just jugged a cup of coffee i am so jumpy with excitement about your pre order acne products. but i have a question about YOUR the acne products. so here goes nothin': my skin is very prone to these little red pimples and when one goes away, another one appears:( are your new products really strong and is the face medicine even STRONGer? i struggle to find products that really do work...
Hi! So glad you like the new site. Our Acne 3 Step is formulated to be gentle and still super-effective. We recommend using the acne products once per day along with Start Fresh. If your skin doesn't feel too dry, increase application to twice a day. You can pre-order the routine now and see how you like it! xo
what does the foaming facial wash do to your face.
i just started today
Hi! Start Fresh Foaming Face Wash gently cleanses dirt and oil that collects throughout the day and (thanks to glycerin) leaves skin super soft. Hope you like it! xo
How often should i use the acne 3 stEps because i dont want to scrub and damage my skin if i use it to much, thanks!
Hi, the jojoba beads in Clear Skin are super gentle and won't damage your skin. But, if you're experiencing some dryness, I would use Clear Skin once a day along with Start Fresh Foaming Face Wash (you can decide to use which one in the morning or at night) :) xo
What Is the order of products i should use to wash my Face?(3 steps For acne and oriGiNal 3 steps)
Hi! You should always: cleanse, hydrate and then protect. So if you have both the Acne 3 Step and 3 Step Daily Routine, you can mix and match the products but never double up! For example, no need to wash with Clear Skin and then Start Fresh. But, you could use Clear Skin in the AM and Start Fresh in the PM, followed by your moisturizer of choice and Face the Day SPF 30 when you head outside! xo
Hi! So do you RECOMMEND the fresh start face wash and the face friendly moisturizer or the new acne line... or both? also sometimes my face the day turns orange on me, got any tips for that? Thank you so much, can't wait to try out your makeup line willa:)
Hi! We recommend both since it's good to switch up your routine. For Face the Day, make sure you're not using too much so it spreads evenly on the skin. Hope that helps! xo
will you have shampoo and conditioner? what about deodorant?
Hi! We're focused on skincare and cosmetics at the moment but would love to expand our product offerings in the future :) xo
Hi Willa! I don't break out a lot, but on occasion i do. Which face soap would you recommend?
Hey there, I'd recommend the Start Fresh Foaming Face Wash for daily use and our Acne 3 Step + Pen when your skin gets a little temperamental. It's available for pre-order now : ) xo
Do you know any methods guaranteed to get rId of acne? I've tried so mAny things! Thanks xo
Acne's the worst has a few different causes like hormones... but, our products will help remove dirt, oil and dead skin cells that can cause acne. I love our Acne 3 Step (I'm obsessed with Zero Shine) and find it gently treats and removes my acne. Try it for yourself (you can pre-order now) and tell me how you like it : ) xo
does acne three step really work?
Hi, Sure does! Everyone in the office is obsessed. xo
Do you test on animals?? I have two dogs so I seriously hope not!
I have a dog, too. Her name is Sunny. We'd never test on her or her friends : ) That's part of our product promise: to never test on animals and create products manufactured in the USA free of sulfates, DEA and phthalates. I hope you love the products!
I was just wondering... why should I wash my face twice a day? Isn't water from the shower enough? BTW I love your products!!
Basically, dirt, oil and other impurities collect throughout the day and while you're sleeping. Cleansing twice a day, once in the morning and at night, removes this buildup for soft, glowing skin. If you're just starting to care for your skin, try our Start Fresh Foaming Face Wash loaded with hydrating glycerin. If you're breaking out, the Step 1 - Clear Skin Acne Cleanser has gentle, exfoliating jojoba beads. Or, if your skin changes throughout the month, use both ; )
