So of course Hyram is a friend of mine, I am super, super excited for Hyram, I’m so happy for him, so I am excited about this review and these products.

Remember that skincare is extremely personal to everybody’s skin. What works for me, may not work for you. But I hope my videos give you some good ideas for products, techniques, and Ingredients to try.
Also, I’m obviously not a dermatologist or a doctor, so all opinions on products and anything else I’m presenting, is results and findings from my own experience and research.
And that’s why I’m here, to share my research and my findings that go further than what is said on the bottle or google!
But, everything I present is always a discussion for you to join in with 🙂
If you have any serious skin concerns, please see a dermatologist/doctor.

    Hey! Just posting to say, people are allowed to like and also dislike these products. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion. So please no arguing in the comments. I fully appreciate the constructive feedback / criticism of the brand both positive and negative 💜

    Stop hating on Hyram, y'all wanted a skin care brand made by him, and now y'all hating. He has good intentions you know? The products are expensive because 50% of the price goes to charity's. No one said u HAVE to buy the products so If you don't want to, don't buy them!

    OMG James! I went to Sephora to get a whole lot of inkey list products you recommended and they had 3 things in stock however they just released this so I came home with Hyram's full range minus one product but I also love the cleanser, I use that and the Krave Matcha one. Enough of this "young audience" I love Hyram because he is mindful of sensitive skin too so because I am new to chemical exfoliation to treat my dark spots and pigmentation I think as you said these products will be great for me & I have barrier repair creams, many serums, hydrating toners and essences etc having watched you for so long it's all ingrained in my brain! … So much fun being on a skincare adventure!
    So excited for Hyram so lovely to see you so excited for your friend! I wish him all the best and I will continue to support

    I'mma try his serums. For my paycheck and budget, though it is pricey it's not like I can't afford them. I love the oat so simple and kale-lalu-yAHA exfoliator from Krave Beauty and they are around a similar price range, but are very effective for me. It just really depends if they work for my skin or not since this beautiful body of mine like being picky XD So excited to try it out!

    Im sorry but I just cannot trust a review to be unbiased when the opening scene is of the reviewer laughing with the person who's brand it is 😬

    Dang man these comments are harsh like people aren’t even giving him a chance… and before y’all come for me I already read your comments so I know why y’all are upset I just don’t personally get it like at least he’s trying versus other companies not giving a shit about where there ingredients or packaging come from it’s like he’s damned if he did and damned if he didn’t … if he didn’t come out with something different then y’all would be mad that he came out with boring products but now these new products are gimmicky? And he made the formulas so you could use them daily because that’s what everyone tends to do but now the % is too low? Like y’all I’m done you all just complain about everything

    Damn, it’s actually sad how much hate he’s getting. YOU might not like his products or whatever but imagine being so happy and proud of yourself for something you’ve achieved to get your bubble bursted by the whole world. Let him have his moment 💫

    I swear nothings ever good enough for you people. A year ago yall would be eating this up praising hyram for releasing a brand and now everyone wants to just talk crap about it? Like don’t buy it if you hate it so much

  10. Maggy Hamada
    Maggy Hamada says:

    Really, no offense to anyone, but I"m pretty sure if these products were created by an unknown Joe, reviews by all these skin care youtubers would most likely be harsher and more critical of the products. There is no such thing as putting your biases or subjectivity aside when you're good friends with someone. I can't trust these reviews wholeheartedly. We need to hear opinions from people who are neutral.
