With news articles and stories all over the internet, I’m sure you’ve heard the words:  “Sea Buckthorn berry” before, I know I have and over the last few months, it’s become quite popular.  Dr. Oz calls it the “Miracle Berry” and others rave about how it’s a power-packed super fruit that should be on everyone’s radar.  So – what is this berry and why is it becoming so popular?  Today, I’m going to share with you some sea buckthorn products from SeabuckWonders and hopefully I can share with you a little more on this product so you are armed with some information.

The sea buckthorn berry has over 190 phytonutrients and fatty acids (ALL the omegas: 3, 6, 9 and the rae Omega-7) that help to protect against many diseases (including breast cancer), but it also provides soothing relief to many.  Many breast cancer patients use sea buckthorn products to reduce the negative effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments and there are a variety of different uses for this berry in general.  For those that are looking for an improvement in your skin – sea buckthorn if filled with antioxidants, vitamins A, E and beta-carotene.  With a treasure chest of nutrients, sea buckthorn has been a secret beauty aid in Eastern Asia for over a 1000 years to provide the lasting and necessary benefits for ever-lasting beauty.

Seabuck thorn berry oil is not only high in Omega-7 which helps to moisturize the cell membranes, but the anti-inflammatory properties can have a hugely positive effect on blood levels.  I was especially intrigued by this particular miracle berry because of the recent health issues I’ve been experiencing and sea buckthorn berry is known to help maintain healthy blood pressure levels while reducing  inflammation, dry-eye symptoms, vaginal dryness and dry skin conditions.  It can also assist in hydrating the digestive tract and internal organs and I love that it’s great for the skin and nails – which for me take a beating during the colder months.

So – now that I’ve given you a little information on this miracle berry – I’m going to share with you a brand and their products that I’ve been using over the course of the last few months.  I’m excited to share these with you because I love products that are affordable and easy to attain.

SeabuckWonders is the first company that brought Sea Buckthorn products to the United States.  The sea buckthorn berries that they harvest are exclusively harvested from the prestine Tibetan region where high altitude and harsh environment have equipped the sea buckthorn with extraordinary biodefense mechanisms with numerous life-giving nutrients such as the rare Omega-7.  The SeabuckWonders 100% pure Sea Buckthorn oil contains up to 30-35% Omega-7, the highest concentration known in the natural world, that provides the best results possible.  All of SeabuckWonders products are made of 100% Pure, USDA Certified Organice Sea Buckthorn Oil, are Kosher Certified and are also Non-GMO Project Verfied and Gluten Free.

I tried four products from the line and have my eyes set on a few others that are on my wishlist to pick up.  The first I’m going to talk to you about is the Ultimate Hair, Skin and Nails Supplement ($34.97 – 60 vegan softgels / 500 mg each).  This supplement helps you to go below the hair, skin and nails to the root of any problems.  By combining biotin with the cell membrane nurturing properties of sea buckthorn oil, the blend offers the best support for strength and beauty.  As I mentioned previously, winter takes a toll on my body (especially my hair, skin and nails) and I make it a point to take a daily supplement to help with this.  The SeabuckWonders Ultimate Hair, Skin & Nails supplement (with Omega-7 and Biotin) have helped to keep my hair stronger than usual while keeping my scalp moisturized so I don’t experience dry, itchy or flakiness.  I noticed after about 2 weeks of taking this supplement that my nails grew faster (my nails naturally are long and grow, but they are at their strongest during the summer months and tend to be brittle during winter).  They not only were growing faster but also stronger without treatment of my cuticles.  My skin is not as dry as it usually is during the winter which to me is probably the biggest plus to see.  Normally – my skin is so dry I am lathering layers of moisturizer to combat my Eczema.  This is the first winter in a long time since I’ve experienced an Eczema flare up thanks to my skin being so hydrated.

  •  Cell membrane nurturing Omega-7
  •  5000 mcg of Biotin
  •  Vegan
  •  Gluten Free
  •  Available in 60 vegan softgels/500 mg each

This is the first winter in a long time since I’ve experienced an Eczema flare up thanks to my skin being so hydrated.

The SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Facial Cleanser ($16.97 – 4 fl.oz / 120 mL) has also been a welcoming part of my skin care routine.  During the winter my skin is so dry that I often layer on different types of moisturizing products but it can also cause my skin to look and feel dull while also causing me to breakout.  This exfoliating facial cleanser has been awesome to use the last several months because it not only deep cleans my skin but boosts my skin’s vibrancy.  It’s gentle and doesn’t strip my skin of it’s natural oils (which I definitely need) but still exfoliates my skin, leaving it smooth and clearing up my complexion.  This is a facial cleanser that is ideal for all skin types because of it’s nutritional properties and leaves my skin feeling clean, balanced and just awesome.

The SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream ($19.97 – 1 fl.oz. / 30mL) has also been a great addition to my skin care regimen.  This product includes all the great ingredients that the others do like the Omegas (including Omega-7) and packs a lot of moisture for my dry skin while still keeping my skin in balance.  Absolutely lightweight and applies like a breeze, my skin drinks this facial cream up and stays moisturized and rejuvenated all day long.  This facial cream helps to minimize my fine lines while smoothing and softening my complexion.  I also enjoy the added benefit of it protecting my skin from the damaging effects of the sun and environmental pollutants.

SeabuckWonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion ($14.97 – 6 fl.oz. / 180 mL) was also a hit for me.  It was awarded the Delicious Living Beauty & Body Award in 2013 and I can definitely see why.  Filled with a potent infusion of Omega 3, 6, 9 and the powerful skin-healing Omega 7, SeabuckWonders Body Lotion provides nourishment with age-defying properties for soft and healthy skin.  I think this product will easily be a favorite of mine for years to come, especially during the winter.  It’s intensely moisturizing without feeling oily/greasy or sticky.  When applied to the skin, it soaks right in while leaving my skin and body feeling touchable soft.  With a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil, this lotion allows for superior moisture retention while protecting the skin from various signs of aging and effects of exposure to the sun.  My knees, elbows and feel LOVE this lotion and I love the light orange scent.  It’s amazing!

I have my eyes set on a few other products to try from SeabuckWonders, especially the supplements.   As I mentioned previously, I have been dealing with a plethora of health ailments, so adding some new supplements to my regiment will surely help.  I’m beyond impressed with the products I’ve tried so far and I am definitely interested in picking up and ordering more that SeabuckWonders offers.

Like I mentioned previously, each product is reasonably priced – in fact, it’s quite affordable when you think of the benefits.  SeabuckWonders products were the first I’ve tried with Sea Buckthorn Oil and my experiencing has definitely been a positive one.  I know this was a lengthy review/feature, but I wanted to make sure you had as much information as possible to be able to make a decision on whether or not you wanted to try these.  As I say with anything I talk about here, my experience with one product may be different from those that you may have.  It’s important to make an informed decision before trying anything obviously, but I love sharing products I’ve been enjoying.

I know you hear it time and time again, but when it comes to skin care, I  truly enjoy trying out new products and giving them a test.  I tend to however, have so many skin care on hand at any given moment, that testing them out and ensuring they work with the current skin care products I use can be a lengthy process.  Sometimes I’ll go months trying out a product before it actually gets mentioned here for a full review.  This is the case with TriDerma and the products I have tried from this line.  I have had these babies in my possession now for months and I’m finally getting around to talking about them.  It’s a skin care brand I thought would be worth mentioning and one I’m really enjoying… furthermore, it’s affordable.  Let’s get chatting about it, shall we?

Prior to getting TriDerma to try, I had not heard of the brand before so I was excited to give it a try.  I received three products from TriDerma to test out – Pore Reducing Anti-Aging Serum, Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Cream and the Light and Delicate Sunscreen with a Broad Spectrum SPF.  Let’s chit chat about each one and what they offer and then I’ll share with you my thoughts on each product.

TriDerma, Skin care, botanical skin care, face, skin, beauty, sunscreen, moisturizing cream, anti-aging, wrinkles, anti-wrinkle, cream, body, spot cream, serum,

TriDerma Pore Reducing Anti-Age Serum ($24.99 – 1 oz.) is not only an affordable skin care product, it’s medical strength.  This creamy serum is unique and also works as a skin primer, but it does more than just “fill in” pores – it helps reduce the appearance of pores to give you a more confident complexion.  If you are someone with oily skin, you may really enjoy this because it helps to control excess oil throughout the day to leave your skin looking and feeling silky soft.

There are no harsh chemicals, peels or procedures required to get results from this product.  The TriDerma exclusive RefinaPore helps to change the look of pores and offers a dual action formula to help hide imperfections and continues to improve the appearance of large pores.  Better yet, it provides the results I was looking for without causing my skin to be irritated, my Eczema to flare up and I enjoyed this product a lot.

This product features AP4 (Aloe Vera Complex) which is a proprietary botanical complex that naturally contains more than 200 healing properties to help reduce swelling, fight bacteria and soothe pain.  RefinaPore helps to smooth and reduce the appearance of pores.  It’s non-greasy, fragrance free, cortisone free and paraben free.  It helps to soften and refine the texture of skin while visibly reducing the appearance of pores and helping to absorb and control oil without drying out my already sensitive and dry skin.

INGREDIENTS:  aloe barbadensis (AP4® genuine virgin organic aloe vera) leaf extract, cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone crosspolymer, botansil, silica, ejitsu rose (rosa multiflora fruit extract), refinapore™, lysophosphatidic acid, lecithin, lysolecithin, dimethicone, isoprene glycol, phenoxyethanol

TriDerma Spot & Wrinkle Erasing Cream ($24.99 – 1 oz.) is a medical strength anti-aging complex that provides results like those from a dermatologist without the cost.  Unlike Hydroquinone, Retin A or Alpha Hydroxy Acid, this fast-acting formula helps to erase the look of brown posts, age spots, and acne scars while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It offers more lightening power.  No Hydroquinone makes this safe to use morning and night and is ideal for the face, neck, hands and decollete.

This product has a light weight, non-greasy formula and applies easily.  I love that it contains the AP4 Aloe Vera Complex as well and is rich in anti-oxidants, anti-irritants and five specialized brightening ingredients to help work to resurface skin naturally.  Cell turnover is encouraged without harsh chemicals, peels or procedures, leaving my skin feeling smoother and brighter as well as more refined.  This product       seems to work after using it as long as I have and while it doesn’t have irritants in the formulation, I still have to be careful with how much I use it, since my sensitive skin hates me.  Regardless though, I’ve been able to include it consistently in my skin care routine and taper as I see fit to make it work.  If you are looking for a non-sticky formula that soaks into the skin quickly, I think you’ll enjoy this one.

INGREDIENTS:  aloe barbadensis (AP4® genuine virgin organic aloe vera) leaf extract, aleurites moluccana seed oil, macadamia ternifolia seed oil, tocopheryl acetate, dimethicone, linoleic acid, glycine soja (soybean), phospholipids, cetearyl methicone, glycereth-26, isopentyidiol, algae extract, mugwort (artemisia vulgaris) extract, urea, glucosamine hcl, saccharomyces cerevisiae extract, bv-osc (ascorbate), behenyl alcohol, pelvetia canaliculata extract, albatin, ergothioneine, ascophyllum nodosum extract, ethylhexyl palmitate, lecithin, netwax age/bca, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexylglycerin, xanthan gum, fragrance

TriDerma Light & Delicate Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 PA +++ ($19.00 – 1.7 oz) is a maximum protection sunscreen with a wonderful light weight formula.  This Sunscreen has a Broad Spectrum SPF 15 PA +++ that offers maximum UVA/UVB protection with essential antioxidants.  It helps to protect against unwanted signs of aging due to harmful sun exposure and can be used daily as a moisturizer for face and body to keep skin looking healthy.

This product also features the AP4 Aloe Vera Complex of proprietary botanical complex that naturally contains more than 200 healing properties to help reduce swelling, fight bacteria and soothe pain.  It also includes Vitamins B & E to help sooth and heal irritated skin.  It’s a non-greasy formula that is fragrance free and it literally is becoming one of my favorites.

I love Tatcha Pore Perfecting Sunscreen, it’s one of my favorites and holy grail products, but after a while, I can only afford it when I save my pennies.  This sunscreen from TriDerma has become my dupe and replacement for the one from Tatcha.  It feels wonderful on the skin, unlike most facial sunscreens and blends into my skin easily and quickly.  I love that I can enjoy some extra moisture while still protecting my skin from the harmful sun rays.  At the price point, this product is reasonable and I love that I can use it daily without any worry of flash back or funky white cast in my photos (I haven’t seen any yet).

TriDerma products are Cruelty Free and made with Certified Organic Aloe.  Since I suffer from various skin irritations, including sensitive skin, Eczema and Atopic Dermatitis, I’m always leery and worried about different skin care products.  Many of TriDerma skin care products are specifically formulated for sensitive skin making it an ideal brand for me to use.  TriDerma products do not contain damaging chemicals like Parabens, cortisones, steroids, fragrances and dyes.  I love that TriDerma has been in business for more than 24 years and founded and owned by a woman.  I’m loving the skin care line or shall I say the products I’ve been using and I look forward to trying more.  I especially enjoy the fact that they are available at a variety of stores including KMart, Walmart, Target and select CVS stores.  You can also purchase online at: http://www.triderma.com

I’m impressed with each product I have tried and I especially love the sunscreen.  I think it’s worth checking out for sure.  This is a line I’m looking forward to checking out more of and I’m looking forward to trying more products from the line to share with all of you.  When you have sensitive skin, it’s hard to find anything that not only works, but offers quality for a great price.  Have you heard about TriDerma before and if so, have you tried any of the products or have any on your sites that you want to check out?

It seems like every couple of weeks I’m releasing my thoughts on a new skin care line I’ve tried.  I’ve said it time and time again, but when it comes to skin care, I enjoy testing them, so you may see a lot of it on my site.  Today however, I’m sharing with you a product that I’ve been using now for about a month and I think you’ll definitely enjoy learning about it for yourself.  Eve Skin Rejuvenation Bar is a skin care genius that helps to transform your skin in two minutes time.  Let’s chit chat about it, shall we?

So what is the Eve Skin Rejuvenation Bar?  Well, with water – the Eve Skin Rejuvenation Bar transforms into a lotion in your hands, replacing your current cleanser with an advanced daily Rejuvenating and Cleansing Treatment from Nature.  It’s a product that can only be matched by professional treatments obtained in Spas & Salons and delivers the key component missing in traditional cleansers that is vital for any skin treatment to be effective.  Deep purging, unblocking and preparation of the skin to receive nourishment and skin transforming active ingredients can all be done with the help of this skin care bar.

This bar is unique in that it has a non-alkaline soap-free formula which protects you from the harmful aging effects of traditional soaps and cleansers.  This bar also helps to provide the ultimate defense against aging – unparalleled support in the repair and rebuilding of healthy ageless skin.  You need only two minutes of using this product to get your skin back to normal and to overcome dry, oily and problem skin.  In that two minutes, the natural active ingredients interact with the skin to soothe, balance and nourish the skin while gradually returning it back to a healthy Normal condition.  This product is ideal for all skin types, even sensitive and delicate skins which is what I have.

Now, if you’ve been a reader of my site for a while, then you know I suffer from dry, sensitive skin which is also Eczema prone.  I also have Atopic Dermatitis, which can flare up at any time (especially when my skin is severely dry) and can be irritated through my asthma (which I’ve had since I was a baby) and/or stress in my daily life.  When it comes to trying out new products, I can be quite leery because many different ingredients and products can cause me a Eczema or skin issues to flare up or become much more severe.  A product that claims to help put my skin back to it’s proper state is exciting but I’m always a bit scared.

After using the Eve Rejuvenation Bar just over a month, I was amazed at how much my skin had changed immediately.  After just the first use, I noticed my skin felt hydrated without feeling oily – which is always a huge plus.  This bar is gentle enough for me to use it daily and has taken away the dry patches around my nose and chin, leaving my skin feeling soft and nice.  I tend to have a break out here or there when trying a new product, and I didn’t notice any of them since using this product.  Genius – right?

Eve Rejuvenation Bar includes some of my favorite skin loving ingredients: like Argan Oil, Manuka Honey, Jarrah Honey, Vitamin C & Vitamin E, Jojoba Oil, Macadamia Oil and Sweet Almond Oil to help infuse moisture, brighten your skin and enrich your skin with all that love it needs.  These powerful natural ingredients provide the body with tools it needs to achieve ultimate recovery and health, so Eve makes no compromises and every ingredient they choose is the most powerful form in nature.

How to use the bar:  

I find it best for me to use the bar at night, since I’m not in a rush and have the time to devote to my cleansing routine.  Consider it your “spa” time, so make sure you are not in a rush as well.  I rinse my skin with warm water, trying to make sure the temperature is warm and not too hot or cold.  Make sure to remove any makeup you have had on prior to using the bar.  Once my skin is wet thoroughly, I then rinse the Eve Treatment bar with water and roll the bar between my hands to create a generous and bubbly lather.  Once that is accomplished, I set the bar on the side (in the drying try or travel box so it can dry) and then transform the bubbly lather into a thick creamy lotion by rubbing my hands together vigorously for about 5-10 seconds.  Make sure you do not skip that step!  Once I have the treatment lotion, I gently apply the lotion over my wet skin to achieve a generous and even coverage.  Make sure you are not scrubbing or continue rubbing once you have achieved an even coverage of the product on your skin.

My little tip is to take the remaining lotion and apply it to your neck, chest, arms and the back of your hands instead of rinsing it away.  Utilize the product on those parts as to not waste.  

Using your Eve two minute hourglass timer, leave the treatment lotion undisturbed for at least a full two minutes.  While you wait, the unique organic compounds interact with your skin in an organized sequence during this time.  After the minimum two minutes have lapsed, simple rinse away any of the treatment lotion with water and pat your face/skin dry with a soft towel.  You’ll immediately notice your skin feels much smoother and nourished, looks radiant and brighter but it also feels so clean like it’s breathing.

Overall – I’m absolutely enjoying these Eve Bar and I would definitely recommend it.  I have noticed my skin has changed for the better over the last month and while the cost of the bar may be quite pricey, investing in your skin is surely important and worth the investment.  The bar lasts quite a long time which is a huge plus considering the price tag and you can get a lot of uses out of one bar.  I have been using mine daily and still have my original bar left.

“Great skin in 2 minutes? Yes, sign me up. Eve Moisturizing bar has been a great addition to my skin care regimen and has made a huge difference in my Eczema. I look forward to using it in the winter when my skin needs the extra hydration and benefits.”

Pregnancy Safe skin care???  Hmmm… I’ll be honest, I didn’t think there was any type of skin care that I couldn’t use while pregnant, but it’s probably because most of what I used during my two pregnancies with my boys, I had picked up for convenience.  Pregnancy can be a very trying time on any mother (to be) and worrying about your skin care seems so tedious and annoying.  I’ll be honest though, what I know now could have really helped my skin through the tough time it experienced while I was pregnant, so that is why I’m sharing it with you.  Today, I introduce you to Belli Skincare.  Their mission is simple, to take the guesswork out of skincare ingredient safety and to provide effective and luxurious formulations.  Let’s chit chat a little about what I had the chance to try out, shall we?

Belli Skincare was born in 2002.  It has earned the respect and recommendations of OB/GYN’s and Dermatologists and most importantly the trust of moms, just like myself.  I was quite intrigued to learn about this brand and very interested and excited to try the products for myself.  Having gone through two pregnancies, my skin really took a toll on my self-esteem.  My pregnancies were harsh on me, losing over 50 lbs during each one, I really had to deal with a lot, including issues with my skin that I would have loved to fixed during that time.  Finding safe and effective skin care during your pregnancy, well – I didn’t think that was an option so I went without or used basic necessities to make it work for me.  However, Belli Skincare which is developed by a Medical Doctor and Beauty Expert has become the trifecta of maternity skin care, offering ingredient safety and effective solutions that provide clinically proven ingredients and luxurious formulations (including aromatherapy) to provide a spa-like experience.

I tried out three products from the Belli Skincare line:  Anti-Blemish Facial Wash, Eye Brightening Cream and Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator.  Each of these products have been a great addition to my skin care regimen,used in combination with some of my favorite products, I have been enjoying them every step of the way.

The Anti-Blemish Facial Wash ($22.00) is a great product for my skin.  It’s obvious I’m not pregnant, but I do need a product that will work well with my sensitive skin and boy do I wish I had this when I was pregnant.  It’s smooth formula facial wash leaves my skin feeling absolutely clean, refined and fresh without drying out my skin or leaving it yearning for moisture.  The tube is quite large so I know that even with the price point, it will offer me a few months of use without any issues.  It’s a nice smelling facial wash and smells of citrus which is great and invigorating to use, especially during the day or for my morning face wash.  While I don’t have issues with breakouts very often, I do get them now and then, especially during that time of month, and I find that this facial wash has really helped with keeping them at bay.  I haven’t had a bad breakout since using this wash.

Just a note – this does kind of exfoliate my skin and livens it up.  I can use this product without issues if I’m not using it too often.  I tend to use it about 3x a week.  This is a nice facial wash for my morning cleansing routine.

INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Lactate, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Sodium PEG-7 Olive Oil Carboxylate, Glycerine, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Sodium PCA, Lactic Acid, Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, Phenoxyethanol, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Cucumis Sativus (Cucumber) Fruit Extract, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (and) Glycereth-2 Cocoate

The Eye Brightening Cream ($39.00) is a great product as well.  I am huge on eye creams and use them daily.  Since I have sensitive eyes, I usually can tell right away if I like an eye cream or if it will be a miss for me.  This eye cream feels really nice on my skin, almost cooling to the touch while it doesn’t have that sticky texture that some eye creams can have.  It also has a cooling feel without the burn – it feels like cool cream or cold cream to the touch.  I don’t have many dark circles, but noticed that it did help with the appearance of fine lines due to rubbing and my allergies and I do love that my eye area looks brighter and rejuvenated.  It’s definitely becoming a favorite eye cream of mine.  With Vitamin K, Vitamin B3 and Vitamin E – I’m loving the combination of ingredients for my sensitive eye area.

INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Olive Oil PEG-7 Esters, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer (and) Squalane (and) Polysorbate 60, Glycerine, Sodium PCA, PPG-2 Myristyl Ether Propionate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Glyceryl Stearate (and) PEG-100 Stearate, Phospholipids (and) Phytonadione, Ethoxydiglycol, Phenoxyethanol, Arnica Montana Flower Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Hydrolyzed Rice Bran Protein (and) Oxido Reductases (and) Glycerine Soja (and) Deionized Water (and) Glycerine, Acanthopanax Senticosus (Ginseng) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Dimethicone, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) (and) Glucose, Panthenol, Saccharomyces Cerevisiae Extract, Squalane, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate (and) Glycereth-2 Cocoate

The Healthy Glow Facial Hydrator ($32.00) has been my go-to day or night to help hydrate, refreshen and cool my skin.  This facial hydrator is perfector for morning or night to help give you an antioxidant boost of Vitamin C and grape seed oil for radiant, healthy looking skin.  This hydrator is lightweight and works for all skin types, including my sensitive skin.  I especially enjoy using it after cleansing and before moisturizer.  One pump of the product smoothed onto my face and I feel like I’m ready to take on the day. I love the citrus scent too – it just wakes me up.

INGREDIENTS: Deionized Water, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Sodium PCA, Cetearyl Olivate (and) Sorbitan Olivate, Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum, Caprylyl Glycol (and) Ethylhexylglycerin, Acanthopanax Senticosus (Eleutherol) Root Extract, Potassium Sorbate, Citrus Nobilis (Mandarin Orange) Peel Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ascorbyl Palmitate

With Belli Skincare you can enjoy peace of mine.  Belli Skincare products are allergy tested, Paraben free and do not contain artificial dyes or fragrances.  They are also OB/GYN and Dermatologist recommended.  They do not do any animal testing, are gluten free and Made in the USA.  I wish I knew about this brand during each of my pregnancies, because it would have been so beneficial for me then.  I’m glad I know about them now.  Sensitivities can develop in the skin during pregnancy because your hormones and body are so out of sorts sometimes so it’s great to know there is a brand out there that can help with that issue.

Over the last couple of months I have enjoyed using Belli Skincare.  The price point is reasonable but the products are really nice and feel absolutely great on my skin.  I have tried many different skin care brands and products over the years and I am thankful to be able to share this product with all of you because I enjoy it.

Learn more about Belli Skincare or purchase something to try on their website: http://www.belliskincare.com/.  They have a variety of products to take a look at for your needs, including those for stretch marks.

Have you heard about Belli before?  If so, what are your thoughts?  If you haven’t, do you think you or someone you know could benefit from trying this skin care line?

I love finding skincare products that work and over the last year and a half I have had the opportunity to try some great ones from StriVectin.  I have been using the Multi-Action Restorative Cream daily as a part of my skin care routine with other products over the last 6 months and after finally trying the product, I feel comfortable enough to share my thoughts with you.  Keep in mind, I’ve been using a lot of skin care lately from StriVectin (it’s literally becoming a favorite among my list of products) so you will be seeing more from the brand here in the next few days.  The StriVectin Multi-Action Restorative Cream has been a favorite that I have even repurchased since first trying it several months ago so I really wanted to share this product with you today.

The StriVectin Multi-Action Restorative Cream (50 mL / 1.7 fl.oz.) retails for $95.00 and claims to address the 12 key signs of aging, replenish and strengthen the moisture barrier to diminish water loss and optimize skin performance to fortify against future aging.  The product is pretty costly in my opinion, but immediately after trying the product for about 3 days when I was first sent my jar to test, I noticed a huge difference in the moisture that my face and neck had.  I love when a product offers immediate results and I noticed it so quickly, I knew I would fall in love with this product.  Let me start off by saying… ack, I hate when I love an expensive product, but love when a product is worth the cost.

I have really enjoyed many different products I’ve tried from StriVectin in the past, but this by far would be considered one of my favorites.  A moisturizer that really does make my skin feel great and look great… yes, sign me up for a lifetime supply – pulllleeesssseeeee!

So what are the 12 key signs of aging that this product claims to target?

  1. Fine Lines – I noticed immediately how the fine lines where my smile lines are softened and were not as noticeable.  This includes my forehead lines that I have as well.
  2. Deep Wrinkles – I don’t have deep wrinkles with exception to between my eyes where I get natural wrinkles from frowning or making faces.  I’ve had these since I was a little girl.  While these are still there, they are less prominent then before.
  3. Firmness – I use this cream on my neck and have noticed within a week that my neck seems firmer and tighter
  4. Sagging Skin – I don’t have much or any sagging skin so I didn’t notice too much of a difference with this particular “sign of aging”
  5. Dehydration – YES!  This is a key claim that I noticed immediately.  This product gave my skin life and it no longer looks dry.  Even with good moisturizers my skin would still have a dry look to it.  This helps to give my skin moisture that lasts all day and has repaired my overall dehydration of my skin.
  6. Dullness – my skin looks brighter and I noticed this after a week of use.  It continues to keep my skin looking great.
  7. Texture – my skins texture has definitely improved.  I use this product along side other skincare products, including the Retinol from StriVectin sorry and noticed my skin feels soft and smooth.
  8. Resilience – well, my skin is naturally sensitive to many products, but after using this cream I noticed my skin seems stronger to other products and not as sensitive as it used to be.
  9. Discoloration – I love that my skin has really evened out and looks great.
  10. Enlarged Pores – I don’t necessarily have large pores, but I can certainly say my pores are not as prominent as before.
  11. Density – I have noticed the increased look of radiant skin.  Thankfully I do not experience much loss of skin density but, noticed that this product is definitely helping to keep my skin looking great, radiant and fuller.
  12. Clarity  – Ah, this one is definitely a plus in my book as well.  My skin looks clearer, has less breakouts during that time when it’s most stressed and overall looks great.

This cream is thicker than what you would expect from your basic or typical moisturizer.  Now, while I say it’s thicker, that doesn’t necessarily mean it is heavier.  It has a dense consistency versus your traditional moisturizer and it feels like it may be lightly whipped somewhat.  I use very little when applying to my face and have absolutely loved over the last 6 months how it feels when applied.  It’s one of those creams that really soak into my face nicely leaving my skin feeling moisturized without that heavy feel.

Ingredients: NIA-114 techology & Pro-12 Youth Optimizing Complex… plus

Aqua (Water, Eau), Glyceryl Stearate, Propanediol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Isopropyl Palmitate, Glycerin, Undecane, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Tridecane, Caprylic/Capryl Triglyceride, Cetyl Alcohol, PEG-100 Stearate, Dimethicone, Glycol Distearate, Myristyl Nicotinate, Tocopherol, Allantoin, Panthenol, Pentylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Secale Cereale (Rye) Seed Extract, Tetradecyl Aminobutyroylvalylaminobutyric Urea Trifluoroacetate, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5, Caprylyl Glycol, Acetyl Tetrapeptide-2, Magnesium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Carbomer, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol

I have been using this product with different serums over the last 6 months and found that some of my serums can cause this to slightly bunch up or have a peeling like texture (not your skin peeling, but the product bunching and looking like peeled skin somewhat), but it is only with some of my serums (not all) and I just stopped using them in combination with one another.  This restorative cream, with Pro-12 Youth Optimizing Complex reinvigorates the skin to initiate a cascade of revitalizing effects so trust me, I was willing to stop the use of some of my other serums temporarily while using this one to achieve the results it has been offering me.

With patented NIA-114 technology to help replenish and strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier to impede water loss and preserve maximum hydration, this product has left my skin feeling and looking so much better than before I started using the product.  My skin started to look and feel more resilient, appearing renewed and healthier but most of all – I love how youthful my face has been looking lately.

I try my best to take care of my skin daily, not only for me, but also because I HATE wearing foundation so if I can keep my skin looking youthful without adding on layers of makeup, I try to do so.  This product has definitely changed how I look and feel about my skin – especially lately since I’ve been dealing with so much stress, it could easily take its toll on my skin.

Honestly, I have tried so many products over the years – from drugstore to luxury brands… but this one here from StriVectin will continue to be a favorite.  I love skin care products and developing a skin care regimen that works well for me.  I have always enjoyed products from StriVectin before, but this one has really been the icing on the cake for me.  So many products can offer a variety of benefits, but this one definitely gave me that “heaven sent” feeling.  I know, I know… you’re wondering if this product is worth it?  I have already saved up and purchased this product once to replenish the initial one that was sent to me for review.  I’ll be honest, it was a hard cost on my pocket book… and I’m not sure how often I can buy it consistently, but I’ll certainly try.  We all know I love to keep it real here and I’m not gonna sugar coat a thing – if you read a review and I say I like it, I truly do… but this product – I absolutely love!  I went through 6 months of trial and tribulation, even buying the product myself to make sure and I can say – without a doubt, this product is a favorite for sure.

How about you?  Have you tried this product before or are you interested in some of its benefits?  Have you tried anything from StriVectin?  Like I mentioned previously, I’ll have a few more products I’ll be sharing with you over the next week or so, so keep your eyes peeled for that too.

When it comes to skin care, I have tried many different products available on the market – from highend to drugstore priced and everything in between.  It seems like there is a serum on the market for any given purpose and made with ingredients both natural and chemical to help with anti-aging and keeping the look of youthful skin.  While I have tried a variety of products, I have never tried anything with Truffles in the ingredient list so I was excited and intrigued to try this particular product out.  The Skin & Co. Truffle Therapy Boosting Anti-Aging Serum, that is made in Italy, has been an interesting try the last month and today I share my thoughts on this product with all of you.

The Skin & Co Truffle Therapy Anti-Aging Serum (retailing for $70.00 1 fl.oz. / 30mL) is a formulated serum that utilized undiscovered properties of the Truffle.  Now – immediately this serum intrigued me… because if you know anything about this foodie, it’s that black and white truffles, truffle oil and truffle salt are ingredients you can readily find in my food pantry – it’s something I love to add to my food when it calls for it.  So, hearing that something I love the taste and aroma of – is a skin care ingredient… well, let’s just say I was sold almost immediately because of this.  The Truffle Therapy Serum is infused with potent skin-renewing ingredients and carefully handcrafted in Umbria.  This serum helps to restore skin with undetected radiance and you notice after a short time using the product that fine lines start fading, roughness is surrendered and you are left with silky smoothness.  Immediately after using it you will see that your skin looks firmer and brighter, leaving you with a healthy, youthful looking complexion.

The Truffle Therapy Serum has a smooth, liquid-like texture… kind of reminding me of a liquid like lotion that’s slightly runny.  It’s smooth and creamy, but applies nicely to the skin with a light cooling sensation.  You only need apply a little amount and smooth the serum onto your face or neck after cleansing and/or exfoliating and before applying your moisturizer.  This serum applies nicely but soaks into the skin quickly.  I love adding this in my skin care routine in the morning especially, because it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth for the day.

After using this product for almost a month I noticed a difference in my skin’s texture and how it looked and felt.  As many know who read my blog, my skin goes through changes as the season does and since we are transitioning from Spring to Summer here in Hawaii, my skin can freak out and go through a major Eczema flare up – resulting in dry skin that leaves me feeling like yuck.  Incorporating this product has made such a huge difference how my skin feels and how fast it recovered from my flare ups.  My skin is soft, hydrated and left looking vibrant and bright when it should look dull and be extremely dry.  I also noticed the fine lines I am starting to see on my face are diminishing, looking softer and filled in – which is awesome.  But, most importantly – my skin feeling smooth, looking plump and hydrated are probably what makes a huge difference for me.

If you are sensitive to scents and fragrance as I am, you do not have to worry about this product.  I find that it has a light earthy scent, but is not extreme or overpowering.  It’s a scent that is really nice and doesn’t linger once the product absorbs into the skin.  I especially love that after the first use, I noticed how much my skin loved the product – leaving it feeling and looking dewy (not oily – but hydrated) and leaving my skin just feeling so supple and plump… I seriously wanted to bathe in the stuff.  If you are looking for a product that feels luxurious, I honestly think this would be a great one to check out.

Ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Coco-Caprylate, Glyceryl Stearate, Cetearyl Alochol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Glycerin, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan) Extract, Equisetum Arvense Extract, Potassium Palmitoyl Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Hibiscus Esculentus Extract, Tuber Melanosporum Extract, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Allantoin, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Sucrose Palmitate, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Polyacrylate, P-Anisic Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Parfum, Citric Acid, Glucose, Disodium EDTA, Coumarin, Linalool, Dextrin

What makes this product and their Skin & Co. skincare line so great is that there are NO Sulfates, Parabens, Mineral Oils or Phthalates.  The truffles that go into the skin care line are harvested for Skin & Co. own farms in Umbria, Italy.  Each product is carefully handcrafted and proudly made in Italy with great ingredients.

I’m not often lost for words, honestly – this post was a bit challenging to write.  The fact of the matter is, I really enjoy this product and have been really loving the way it leaves my skin feeling and how nice it’s been working for me.  I have tried so many products over the years, and this one really did impress me far more than I could have imagined.  I freaked out a bit over the cost of the product and I’m not sure how long I can keep up with the price tag but when it comes to skin care, once my skin loves something, I try to spoil it as much as possible.  I have my wishlist for next month and this product is definitely on it.

Valentia has stolen my skin care loving heart with their various products that I have tried over the last couple of years.  Each time I try something new, I think to myself – this can’t possibly be any better than what I already tried, and they amaze me yet again.  Today I share with you my thoughts on a product that is surely meant for my sensitive skin.  It’s gentle and feels really nice on and I’ve been absolutely loving it lately.  The Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum is a new addition to my skin care regimen and while it is not something I think I would have liked when I first laid my eyes on it – I was very surprised after just one use.

Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum, Valentia skin care, skin care, serum, facial serum, rose serum,

The Valentia Royal Rose Hydrating Serum ($35.00 – 1.18 Fl.oz. / 35mL) looks like any other Valentia Serum in a similar packaged bottle and pump to dispense the product.  It’s formulated to deeply moisturize your skin while providing antioxidant protection and soothe and nourish dry skin.  Since I naturally have dry skin – this product has been wonderful and feels fabulous against my face.

The serum is lightweight and while very hydrating, it doesn’t leave your skin feeling sticky or dewy but feeling moisturized.  It’s specifically crafted with rose petals from the fragrant Damask Rose – an essential oil that has been long regarded as being more precious than gold for its natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties.  While this is its main ingredient, it is also formulated with other skin loving oils like: Bearberry, Lavender and Primrose to help soothe and brighten your skin.  This product is the perfect serum to help nourish, calm and cool your skin for a more refreshed and youthful look and feel – while leaving your skin feeling soft and hydrated.

After just one use, I noticed my skin retained its moisture through out the day and my skin tone and texture was smooth and skin radiant.  It left me loving this product after using it just one time and I know like other Valentia products, I will continue to purchase it in the future.

Ingredients:

  • Rosa Damascena: One of the most nourishing and skin-friendly natural oils, providing balance, moisture, and a variety of vitamins and minerals to the skin. 
  • Niacinamide (Vitamin B): This potent vitamin has been clinically proven to fade away hyper-pigmentation, sun spots, and acne. 
  • Rosehip Seed Oil: Naturally rich in Vitamins C and A, these essential fatty acids work quickly to lock in skins moisture. 
  • Evening Primrose Oil: Provides light, non-oily moisture to the skin, never clogging or irritating the skin. 
  • Bearberry: Reduces melanin production, thereby lightening the skin, revealing a brighter complexion. 

Application:  I usually apply 1-2 pumps to my face and neck in the evening after I cleanse and before I moisturize.  I tend to apply it when applying any of my other serums.  1-2 pumps is more than enough to cover my whole face and neck, and it will soak into your skin fairly quickly once you apply and work into your skin.  I haven’t noticed any bunching or weird reactions with this product when used in combination with my other serums or skin care.

I love the creamy, cooling texture of this product but I didn’t expect to really like the scent.  As many know (if you have been a follower of this blog), I have fragrance sensitivities and rose scents usually come into that category with floral scents that I struggle with.  I didn’t have any issues with this and while it may be because I’ve been sick the last few weeks and can’t smell much of anything lately, I didn’t really smell a fragrance from this serum.  That is a major plus for me because that meant “no sneezing” especially in the middle of the night since this is a nightly serum.  Overall, I have really been loving how this feels on the skin, how nicely it soaks into my skin and the fact that it not only hydrates and moisturizes, but I didn’t have any adverse reactions or issues.

In the past where I have reviewed or talked about Valentia products, I have mentioned how gentle they have been for my sensitive skin and this was no exception.  I especially love that it is formulated with Sensitive Skin users in mind and really left my skin feeling nice, smooth and soft.  Used in combination with my other favorite skin care products, I know that this will continue to be one in my skin arsenal and I’ll continue to enjoy it.

What about you – what products have you tried, if any, from Valentia Skin Care?  Do you have sensitive skin like me and are looking for added moisture to hydrate and smooth?  Do you think this is something you would want to check out?

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may probably already know that I love Valentia Vitamin C Serum and it is one of my favorites for skin care.  Because of this, I was so excited to try Valentia’s True Glow Eye Cream and the Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask.  I’ve been using these two products over the last couple of weeks and I’m finally ready to share my thoughts with all of you.  Have these products become some favorites of mine as well?  Do they work for me as much as the Vitamin C serum?  Read on to get all the details.

Valentia is a skin care brand that offers products that have been formulated with natural and organic cosmetic ingredients to help repair and protect the skin.  With these products they offer an organic base that is proven to be effective at repairing skin damaged by the sun or wind, preventing signs of aging such as wrinkles and dark spots and reversing the effects of oxidative stress on the skin.  Valentia Skin Care is becoming a brand that people are loving for it’s quality and affordability.

The Valentia True Glow Eye Cream ($25 – 1.18 Fl.oz. / 35mL) is an intense corrective eye treatment that helps to reduce wrinkles, nourish, hydrate and tighten the eye area and brighten dark circles.  The claim is also that it will restore the radiance of your skin near the eye area.  The True Glow Eye Cream is luxurious feeling and an antioxidant rich eye cream.  It helps to lock in moisture for a youthful looking glow and leaves your eye area looking fresh, awake and younger.  I have tried MANY different eye creams from a variety of different brands and companies so I didn’t think that I would experience much difference with this particular cream.

First, let me say that I’m impressed with the packaging.  I love when creams or gels are in a pump making it easiest for application.  The pump is easy to use and you get just the right amount of product – so you don’t have to worry about wasting.  Second – you get a lightly scented product, nothing too drastic or too strong for you to smell, which makes it great for me since I have fragrance sensitivities sometimes.

And, third – this product feels great under my eyes and around my eye area.  It’s a cream product that is light weight and feels really soothing as you apply it.  The area where I apply the product is left soft and hydrated with an almost dewy finish but a smooth texture that I really enjoy.  Furthermore, I really like that it soaks into the skin nicely – but doesn’t leave behind a funky residue like some of my eye creams can and it doesn’t weigh down my under eye area.  I really enjoy this product.  I love how hydrated my under eye area looks and feels and you will notice these results instantly.  I didn’t notice any firming or tightening near my eye area immediately but after several uses and a few weeks time, I started to notice that the area around my eye definitely looked more plump, firm and tighter.  That result was not immediate, but I did notice a difference after a few weeks.  I love that this product has Arnica, an ingredient I use when my eyes are swollen from my allergies because it helps to reduce swelling making this just an awesome product to use.

Specially selected ingredients work together to achieve optimum results.
– Astaxanthin: A powerful antioxidant that increases moisture levels, smooths fine line and wrinkles, and restores elasticity to the skin.
– Resistem: Natural Plant Stem Cells repair and protect the skin from harsh environmental pollutants and stress related aging.
– Vitamin C: Leaves the skin smooth and visibly brighter for a well-rested and bright eyed look.
– Organic Rosehip Oil: Provides intense hydration to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
– Arnica: A key anti-inflammatory agent to the restorative process that works to diminish the appearance of dark circles.

The Valentia Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask ($25.00 – 4 fl.oz. / 120 mL) claims to help boost collagen production, increase skin radiance and reduce fine lines.  It also helps to secure skin’s moisture and is suitable for all skin types.  With key ingredients like Japanese Green Tea (an anti-oxidant rich ingredient that helps anti-aging and anti-inflammatory effects to the skin), Aloe Vera (a nutrient rich botanical that helps to moiturize the skin and fight aging by improving skin’s natural firmness and Organic Rosehip Seed Oil (a fatty acid that works to lock in moisture by hydrating the skin and keeping it soft and supple), this mask offers a variety of benefits for our skin against every day battles.

The texture and feel of this mask reminds me of a hair mask I use to use on my hair a few years back.  It’s squishy and cream like with a texture similar to smashed jello, but applies to the skin fairly easily.  You apply it to your face avoiding the eye area and leave it on for about 15-30 minutes.  That’s quite a long time period for me to leave a mask on so I make sure when I apply it that I have a thin layer so that it stays in place and doesn’t run down my face.  I did feel a slight tingling sensation though it wasn’t uncomfortable at all and I didn’t have any sensitivities to the product that I can recall.  Removing it was easy – I just used a damp cloth and warm water and removed the product with ease.  Since I only apply a thin layer, a little of this product goes a long way.  After the first use I noticed almost immediately that my skin seemed much more hydrated (especially during the winter) and softer.  I also noticed there was a brightness to my face – like it had stripped the dull and really awakened my face from a sleep.  With a blend of silk protein amino acids and botanical hyaluronic acid, I definitely felt the additional moisture my skin lacks during the winter months.

Specially selected ingredients work together to achieve optimum results.
– Silk Protein Amino Acid Blend:These natural miracles increase moisture content and help in the production of collagen and elastin which decreases the appearance of visible lines.
– Botanical Hyaluronic Acid:Penetrates deep into the skin to secure moisture and plump skin from within.
– Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil:An anti-aging wonder berry that results in fewer fine lines, diminished sun spots, more even skin tone, and firmer more supple skin.
– Japanese Green Tea:Contains catechins that provide anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, and anti-irritant effects to the skin.
– Aloe Vera:This botanical moisturizers skin and fight aging by improving skin firmness.

I have tried many similar products before but I’m quite amazed with these two.  I have always been a fan of Valentia Skin Care and the fact that they are made in the USA so it is nice to know that these products not only work, but they are affordable and easy to purchase.  For a full list of ingredients in each of these products, visit: http://www.valentia.com/.  Overall – I think these products are really nice.  Considering they are affordable, they offer luxurious results for a fraction of the cost making great skin care available for anyone.  Both products are Alcohol and Paraben free and the brand also offers a variety of other products you could try.  I highly recommend the Vitamin C Serum and Rose Hip Oil (two of my faves).  If you are looking for a good eye cream that will offer great hydration to the eye area and a mask that may feel odd on the skin but really leaves your face feeling supple and youthful, I definitely recommend these too.

How about you?  Have you tried anything from Valentia before?  If so – what are your favorites?  If not, what products are you interested in checking out?

When it comes to skin care, I have tried so many different brands including drugstore, highend, mainstream and indie.  While I enjoy them all, I find that it can be rare that I can use a whole line of products from one brand and not have an issue with at least one of the products.  I thought it would be so with OZ Naturals, seeing as I have been enjoying some of the products I have been using.  I thought to myself, Hmm… I’m not sure the Ocean Mineral Cleanser will work for me and I’m glad I had the chance to try it out.  Today – I share with you my thoughts and review on this product and let you know if the OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser was a hit or miss.  Read on for more info.

OZ Naturals, OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser, facial cleanser, skin care, facial, cleanser,

The OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser (4 fl.oz / 118mL) retails for about $23.00 and can be found via the Oz Naturals website or via their Amazon Store.  I haven’t heard much about this brand prior to being introduced and trying their Eye Gel (which I’m loving and you can read about here) but after looking into the brand I found that they have quite a line up of different products which I’m looking forward to testing out. This Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser is free from alcohol, parabens and sulfates and is said to be safe for all skin types.  This effective facial cleanser is made in the USA and is said to be one of the most effective anti-aging skin care products on the market, made with the highest quality ingredients.

Some of the key ingredients in this product include:  Rose hip oil, rich ocean minerals and Vitamin E.  It was specifically developed to be gentle on sensitive skin, yet highly potent and effective in dissolving nasty particles that clog your pores as it cleanses your skin and clears your clogged pores naturally and effectively.

OZ Naturals, OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser, facial cleanser, skin care, facial, cleanser,

The OZ Naturals Ocean Mineral Facial Cleanser is a clear liquid cleanser that feels really soothing when applied to the skin.  I like the fact that when I’m cleansing my face it feels like it’s adding moisture into my skin while still cleaning it well – if that makes any sense.  What is so neat about this cleanser is you really need just a tad bit… I usually try to squeeze out two pea sizes worth of product and that is more than enough to cover my whole face.  Once I have the cleanser in my hand, I add a little water to it and mix the product in my hand until it foams up.  Once it foams, I apply to my face in a circular motion while cleaning my face of it’s dirt and impurities.  Once I rinse the product off my face, my skin feels clean, but not dry like a cleanser that foams can normally leave my skin feeling.  Even with my sensitive skin and eczema issues, I found that this product worked well and cleaned well.  I didn’t have any breakouts, flare ups or any issues with using this product the last month.  After a month or so of using this product, it seems like my skin is brighter and some what smoother in places that tend to be drier during the winter months.

I think if you are looking for a facial cleanser that will clean your face – leaving it feeling great, but not drying your face out, you will enjoy this.  Since my skin is naturally dry, I like to use cleansers that will not strip my face of moisture and this really did the job in my opinion.  It’s not a thick formulation at all but it foams and bubbles up so quickly when using.  If you have sensitive skin like I do and you’re looking for cleanser that will do the job – I think you may enjoy this one.  I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this particular one and when it comes to cleansers, those are the types of products I don’t tend to stray away from my norm.  I would repurchase this and continue to use it.  I definitely look forward to using this during the summer when my skin needs that super clean greatness.  One note however… once you apply this product to your face, rinse and do not leave it sitting (like you would a wash off mask) as it can dry your skin out.  I noticed one day when I did that – not on purpose, the phone rang and I went to pick it up, that after a couple of minutes – when I washed it off my skin felt dry – not like it normally would feel.

What are your favorite cleansers to use for your skin?  Have you tried anything from OZ Naturals before?  Do you have any other recommendations for me?  Comment below and let me know.

Finding the perfect holiday gift for someone who is on the go constantly can be a challenge.  When I worked in Corporate America and traveled often, I rarely seen family, friends or my bed for weeks on end so the last thing you want to do is get a gift for someone that they will not utilize.  However, traveling does not mean that you need to skimp on the cleansing and that’s where the Michael Todd Soniclear Petite comes into play.  Recently I posted my thoughts on the Soniclear Elite which you can read about here and today I am sharing with you a great little gift idea for the skin care lover in your life that is not only on the go but that may travel.  Not a traveler?  Don’t worry – this fun little gadget will satisfy the beauty lover in you or someone you love.

Holiday Gift Idea For The Traveler - Cleanse On The Go With Michael Todd Soniclear Petite

The Michael Todd Soniclear Petite Offers all the great sonic powered cleansing you can expect from the full sized version, in a travel friendly one.  This cute little system retails for $99 and the color Tutti Fruitti can be found at Ulta and Ulta.com.  The Soniclear Petite is great for all skin types and includes your Soniclear Petite unit, 1 Facial Brush head with cover, 1 Charging/Storage Cradle and 1 USB Universal Voltage Charger.  What makes the Soniclear Petite so unique is that it not only cleanses the same as the full sized, but it’s smaller size makes for packing and travel easy and the Universal USB Enabled Charger allows you to charge your unit on the go – in the car, etc.

Cleaner skin begins with a cleaner brush and the Soniclear is the World’s First Antimicrobial Sonic Cleansing System.  The Soniclear brush heads are treating during the manufacturing process with LIFE antimicrobial product protection to inhibit up to 99.9% of stain and odor causing bacteria.  The Soniclear antimicrobial brushes stay cleaner and fresher for 6 months before needed to be replaced.  That is not only convenient, but it also means you save some money since replacing your brush heads are not as often as other brands.

Holiday Gift Idea For The Traveler - Cleanse On The Go With Michael Todd Soniclear Petite

The Soniclear Petite comes with 3 customizable speeds which allows you to adjust the unit to what works for you and your skin.  You literally can strip away all the dead skin cells, makeup, dirt and oil 6x better than your hands alone leaving you with great skin.  The brushes move at up to 18,000 times a minute to thoroughly cleanse and exfoliate your skin, but still offering a gentle clean.

Cleaning this unit is easy as pie and simple as simple as cleaning the full sized.  I simply apply a little more of my cleanser and clean the brush head before storing to dry.  It’s waterproof and has an automatic timer that helps to standardize cleansing for consistent results each time you use it.  I enjoy using my Soniclear Petite as a part of my skin care regimen and rave about this product as much as I do the original – it really is that good.  Since I have sensitive skin – I am unable to use my Soniclear daily, but that is not the fault of the unit – just my skin.  I love it regardless.

Holiday Gift Idea For The Traveler - Cleanse On The Go With Michael Todd Soniclear Petite

If I had to make one suggestion, it would be that I wish it had a little bag or carrying case to make for easy travel and transport.  Otherwise, I love how “petite” and compact the Soniclear Petite is and the cute watermelon shade is awesome.  The Soniclear Petite does come in a few other colors as well but Tutti Frutti is exclusive to Ulta.  This makes the perfect Holiday Gift for the beauty lover in your life – whether they travel or not and a great addition to any skin care lovers arsenal.

Have you tried the Michael Todd Soniclear Petite or any of the Soniclear products?  If so – what do you think of them?  Is this on your wish list this holiday season?

It’s no secret that I am a huge skin care lover and will covet anything that will offer my skin much needed hydration and anti-aging capabilities.  Since I have very sensitive, Eczema prone skin, it is important for me to find skin care products that are not only effective in what I need them for but also gentle to my skin or else it will freak out.  Recently I was sent the Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel to give a go and try out and while it’s been years since I have used anything from the Shiseido line, I was excited to give this a run because it was a skin care line I did enjoy when I used it.

Greatness For Skin In a Little Jar - Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel

The Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel (Net wt. 30 ml / 1oz.) retails for $38.00 and comes in a really cool looking pot (jar) that matches the overall feel and look of the Ibuki line from Shiseido.  I’m not a huge fan of moisturizers or face products that come in a jar because they can get a bit messy, but since this is a gel – I can understand the cause behind it.  The gel can clog the pump from a traditional dispenser, so I can see the reasoning there.  To keep from germies and contamination, I use a makeup / beauty spatula to take out product and it is either disposable or sanitized after use.   Overall – the packaging is gorgeous however and offers such a chic and sophisticated look as does the products from Shiseido offer.

Corrects:  Roughness, Visible Pores, Breakouts and Blemish Marks.

The gel is an interesting one.  It looks like a sea foam green  reminds me of something that I would expect to have a cucumber scent, but I couldn’t detect much of a scent from the gel.  The consistency of it feels firmer than I had expected and reminds me of the slime/ooze that I would buy for my sons.  While it feels like that, it still has a light texture and feel and smooths onto my skin very easily.  The gel absorbs pretty quickly onto my skin, leaving my face feeling quenched some and I didn’t notice any sticky residue – which is a huge plus.  Once the product was applied, I noticed it not only went on easily but I didn’t even realize it was there once it dried.

Greatness For Skin In a Little Jar - Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel

Since I have dry skin and my skin is Eczema prone, I’m always very careful with how products are and test them in small areas prior to using them all over my face.  I was very amazed with how well this moisturized my skin while using it on its own and then with my favorite skin care products.  Since this product is for all skin types, I was a bit worried that it would be too drying for me since my face especially needs lots of moisture.  This light weight gel includes an exclusive PhytoTarget Complex that enhances the skin’s natural moisture factors to help build the skin’s resistance to external stressors.  I don’t often use products that include salicylic acid because I don’t have very many breakouts and with my sensitive skin, it can cause my face to feel dry.  My skin was not only left hydrated and moisturized, but my skin felt so smooth and soft and I didn’t didn’t even notice it had salicylic acid in it.

“Formulated with PhytoTarget Complex and botanical extract Glycyrrhizin and Clycylglycine.  

Gentle yet effective formula for all skin times including sensitive.”

This gel is light weight (as stated above) and non-greasy, which is a huge plus.  I did have a small breakout while testing this product due to my monthly friend and I noticed that it cleared up very quickly, so I think it definitely helps to heal blemishes.  I didn’t notice any dry patches or spots and overall I really enjoy this product.  The cost is reasonable considering the amount you get in the product because I found that due to the texture of the gel, it smooths on well and a little of the product goes a long way.  I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good moisturizing product and love that it worked for my sensitive skin.  I know I’ll be repurchasing this product when I run out of mine.

So what about you?  Have you tried anything from the Shiseido Ibuki line or the Multi Solution Gel in particular?  If so – what are your thoughts?

Everyone knows skin care products are my jam – especially if they work.  I am a fan of all kinds and all price points but I love to try products that work for my sensitive skin, no matter what they are used to combat.  Recently I had the opportunity to try out some products from Solutions 24 Clinical.  This product line is currently available at Walmart Stores and Walmart.com which make them easily accessible to purchase and I really enjoy that they are affordable.  Today we are talking about these products and how they worked for my skin.

Solutions 24 Clinical Corrector Sticks - Dark Circles, Puffy Eyes and Dark Spots

Available in three different types of sticks to combat three different issues you may have with your skin, Solutions 24 Clinical Corrector Sticks retail for just about $12 and offer targeted treatment for each issue.  The stick itself is VERY easy to use, simply remove the cover and twist up the product to use each.  Applying the product is as easy as rubbing the stick onto the areas you want to treat.  Each stick has a cooling sensation and feels great on my skin.  I expected it to be sticky and uncomfortable – especially since it has been so hot here on Maui, but it applied easily, smoothed on and was light weight on my face.  What I love is that these sticks are firm so they don’t squish on the face, making it easy to apply without any issues.  I apply this product before moisturizing day and night for best results.

Solutions 24 Clinical Corrector Sticks - Dark Circles, Puffy Eyes and Dark Spots

The Puffy Eyes Corrector Stick helps to reduce puffiness and swelling around your eyes and clinical studies show the protein and extracts in the corrector reduce the puffiness by improving fluid drainage and stimulation of the collagen production.  The puffy eye area becomes firmer, smoother and hydrated.  I love using this product in the morning on the days that I haven’t gotten much sleep.  I instantly feel refreshed, but I also love the cooling sensation it gives.

The Dark Circles Corrector Stick is used to lighten dark circles by strengthening weak blood vessels just beneath the skin and the primary cause of dark circles.  The dark circles become lighter and the eye area brighter and hydrated.  I don’t have dark circles unless I’m sick or really didn’t get much sleep, so I didn’t notice dark circles disappear with this product.  I did however notice that the areas beneath my eyes appeared brighter and like the other sticks, I loved the cooling sensation this product has when applied.

The Dark Spot Corrector Stick is the one I got the most use out of.  After having my children, I started dark spots and skin tags on certain parts of my face and while they are not that visible to any person, I can see them and they drive me nuts.  The dark spot corrector significantly lightens pigmentation of the skin by reducing melanin production in the skin’s layers.  Dark spots fad and skin tone is much more even.  I have been concentrating this product on places near the hollows of my cheeks where I have some discoloration.  I also apply the corrector stick to some of my old acne scarring and some places on my neck where I have noticed dramatically how much the spots have lightened everywhere I have applied this.  I especially have been enjoying this product.

Solutions 24 Clinical Corrector Sticks - Dark Circles, Puffy Eyes and Dark Spots

If I had to suggest at least one of the sticks to try – it would be difficult as they all really serve a pretty great purpose and work well for the targeted issues you may have.  Again, the Dark Spot corrector is my favorite as I get the most use out of it.  I have freckles which I have learned to love, so I haven’t been trying to treat them specifically – but I have noticed that the freckles on my cheeks have lightened.  I also use for places where I have uneven skin tone, sun damage and these places have improved a lot over the last month since using this product daily.  A huge difference and definitely noticeable.

Solutions 24 Clinical Corrector Sticks - Dark Circles, Puffy Eyes and Dark Spots

If you are looking something to treat problem areas on your face and eye area – you may like these.  Again, they are reasonably price – well, actually, pretty darn affordable and easy to use.  Have you been seeing these in your local Walmart?  Is this something you may be interested in trying?

One type of serum I can’t get enough of is Hyaluronic Acid and it’s something I include in my daily skin care regimen without skipping a beat.  Since I naturally have dry skin and I’m Eczema prone, this particular serum helps to keep my skin hydrated and moisturized so that I have less flare ups.  I have tried many many serums including this ingredient in the past and I’m constantly trying new ones.  Recently, I added the CSCS Advanced Face Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C to my regimen.  I’ve been using it the last month in combination with other products I currently use and I wanted to share my thoughts with you on this product.

CSCS Advanced Face Serum - Hyaluronic Serum + Vitamin C

CSCS Advanced Face Serum – Hyaluronic Serum + Vitamin C (1 fl.oz.) retails for $24.99 and comes in a very bold blue bottle which makes it easy to find among my other skin care products.  The Vitamin C Serum is made with 100% natural ingredients – formulated with natural, plant based ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid and polypeptide Vitamin C.  Like most serums with similar ingredients, it helps to restore the skin with antioxidants, UV protection and moisturizing nutrients that penetrate deep into the skin strengthen and defend the skin against damage from free radicals and unfavorable environmental conditions.  This product is a skin safe anti-wrinkle moisturizer that is free of chemicals like parabens, phthalates, sulfates and alcohol and it is also free of artificial scents, colorants and preservatives.  This serum is formulated and produced in the USA in small quantities using renewable resources and is manufactured in an eco-friendly, cruelty-free environment.  No animal ingredients are used and this product is not tested on animals.

Now that I have broke it down for you – here are my thoughts on this product.  The actual serum is semi clear where the liquid looks a little transparent white.  It is very much like a liquid – not gel like and applies easily to the skin.  It soaks into my face and neck quickly which I absolutely love and doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky once it is set and has soaked in properly.  A little goes a long way with this product due to the liquid like texture.  I never use a full dropper and can apply the product directly to my entire face, neck and decollete area in half a dropper or less.  It has a light citrus scent, but very light so I can use this at night if I feel the need though it is a part of my daytime routine.

After a month of using this product, I’m quite impressed.  It helps to keep my skin hydrated through the day without leaving my skin feeling dry or sticky.  The price point is awesome and spot on considering the amount of product you receive and I do like the packaging.  The dropper tool makes it easy to use and I love that I can move on with my skincare routine without waiting for the product to soak into my face.  I definitely suggest this product and would recommend it to anyone looking for a serum at a reasonable cost.  You can purchase this product here.
