My Thoughts:

I’ve given this seaweed powder a try during the colder months of the year–those on which I typically exfoliate less. My skin is drier and tends to get completely dried out if I wash it and scrub it too often.

That said, this seaweed powder has a ton of uses! I used it in smoothies, in facial masks and as a body scrub. In regards to being a dietary supplement, this kelp powder is rich with iodine, which is needed by the body (especially by the thyroid gland). For that reason, I value consuming it in small amounts in addition to using it in my skin care routine.

In the summer months, I absolutely love the idea of keeping scrubs in the shower for regular exfoliation. When it’s warm out, I tend to perspire more and having dry skin isn’t a big issue. Thus, I exfoliate a few times a week. This routine helps keep your skin glowing and radiant, as it scrubs away dead skin. Since many days are spent in a bikini, the routine is one that I covet for summer.

I can’t speak directly to the effectiveness of this seaweed powder in regards to being a miracle worker in targeting cellulite. I can say, however, that regularly exfoliating my legs, hiney and areas on my body more prone to stretch marks does appear to help the overall appearance and health of my skin–my skin looks fresher and any imperfections are not as noticeable.

I can say that the quality and purity of this product appears to be excellent. It’s certified organic and contains only kelp seaweed powder.

As far as using it as a facial scrub, I’d recommend doing this only one time a week in the winter months. I find that if exfoliate my skin in the winter months a lot, I have issues with dryness, redness and a generally uneven complexion. When you do exfoliate, I’d definitely recommend following up with an organic moisturizer (could be something as simple as pure, organic, hemp oil.) This way, you’re preventing the dryness and replenishing your skin with moisture.

Hemp Oil

About:

“Hemp seed oil is an emollient which is non-greasy and works perfectly as a moisturizing compound with excellent moisture balancing properties.

Using Hemp seed oil is a great way to achieve soft, smooth and hydrated skin. Hemp seed oil prevents moisture loss on a physiological level and doesn’t merely “coat” the skin as do other oils. It contains the ideal ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 based on our cells needs. Hemp so closely matches our own skins lipids, it is able to penetrate inside our cells and lubricate the surface between them, thus bringing the EFA’s into the body. For this reason EFA’s have been proven to play a preventative role in skin aging and a healthy moisture balance.

Thanks to its high amount of polyunsaturated essential fatty acids (linoleic and linolenic acids), hemp seed oil has excellent anti-inflammatory qualities. It therefore helps to relieve conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema as well as healing skin lesions, balances dry skin and combats skin inflammations.

Hemp is also the only plant oil containing Vitamin D, which is necessary for Calcium absorption and especially useful to vegans. Hemp seed oil contains 57% linoleic (LA) and 19% linolenic (LNA) acids and antioxidants in the form of vitamin E and carotene. Phytosterols, phospholipids, as well as a number of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, sulphur, potassium and phosphorus are also found in the oil.”

Moroccan Lava Clay Mask:

About:

“Sourced from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, Moroccan Lava clay has been used for hundreds of years as a natural beautifier.

Moroccan Lava Clay is a light brown clay with wonderful exfoliating, cleansing and detoxifying properties. It has a remarkable ability to draw out excess oils and impurities from deep within the skin thanks to its high levels of “ion exchange”.

It is also highly nourishing for the skin thanks to its high mineral content and unique composition including Silica, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium.

Because Moroccan Lava clay has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-microbial and antiseptic qualities, it is a great skin cleanser and can be use daily as a face wash. The regular use of Rhassoul clay may also help to improve the appearance of skin troubled by Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne and Rosacea.

Studies have shown that Rhassoul helps to:

  • improve skin texture
  • reduce dryness and flakiness
  • improve skin elasticity and firmness, and
  • Remove dead skin layers, therefore leaving the skin nice and smooth.

Because of its amazing qualities it is not surprising that Rhassoul clay is used by prestigious spas and loved by people from all over the world.

Directions for use

a) Blend one to two teaspoons of Rhassoul clay and enough water (or floral water) to make a creamy face mask. Wash face with warm water and apply the mask. Do not let the mask dry out so apply a moistened cloth or sponge over the face to keep the mask damp. Leave for about 5 to 10 minutes (but no longer than that). If the skin looks inflamed after the first application, don’t worry, this is just a detox symptom and a good sign! Apply the mask once a week.

b) As a face/body wash: Mix one to two teaspoons of clay with water, to form a mixture similar in consistency to liquid soap. Apply the prepared clay to the wet face/body. Massage the area covered by clay for a few minutes. Rinse thoroughly.

Ingredients:
 Sun-dried Moroccan Lava clay only.
70g.”

My Thoughts:

I can’t say enough positive things about Raw Gaia skin care. I’m pretty sure I fell in love with these products before I ever received them in the mail. Truly organic & pure skin care is so refreshing and exciting to me. Your skin can thrive if you give it nutrients straight from nature. I love that Raw Gaia obviously believes this as well.

Though I have used hemp oil on and off for a few years as a dietary supplement (in smoothies & shakes as a healthy source of fat), this is the first time I’ve used it as a facial oil (moisturizer). I require no “selling” in terms of why hemp is a great choice for health. I’m completely on board with this superfood. It’s a readymade healer for both the inside and outside of the body–and I couldn’t wait to try it on my skin. The verdict is: my skin all but sang when I applied it for the first time. There’s such a delicate balance of trying to find an oil that soaks into skin well, keeps it moist & nourished, but also doesn’t leave skin feeling goopy. Often times, when you get your hands on the real stuff (organic, raw & pure), all of those issues go away–it works magically on skin & soaks in just right. It also helps to balance my skin’s oil production.

After many years of washing my face morning and night, I have (in the last 6 months or so) started keeping it to once a day. In the morning, I simply mist my face with water + essential oils (filtered water + peppermint + rosemary + tea tree + lavender essential oils), but do not wash it off. In the evening after I’ve worked out, I wash my face with an organic cleanser and follow up with a fairly generous amount of facial oil. There’s an incredibly good feeling using products that are pure as can be. This way, I simply never have to worry about the ingredients being questionable–and I can rest assured that my skin’s health will reflect that.

I use this clay mask by pouring a small amount into my hand + a few drops of water to make a paste. I have a handy little paintbrush-looking mask application brush that I use to apply it to my entire face (minus the eye sockets). I leave it on until it gets dry (about 5-10 min) and then use it as an exfoliant as I wash it off in the shower. 5-10 minutes might sound like a long time–here’s what I do: apply it, take your time and make a green drink or smoothie, then by the time I’m headed back to the shower with my drink, the mask is ready to wash off (and then I drink my green drink in the shower (the ultimate!) :).

Tell me you don’t get excited knowing that Raw Gaia makes even more organic, cold pressed oils?! Jojoba, reshape, etc. These products would make an incredible gift to your loved ones, and for yourself, alike!

 

Odacite Organic Skin Care Review

20140329-151803.jpg

Odacite Skin Care

Overall Rating: 5 Stars 

About Odacite:

Our Philosophy: Well Beyond Organic 

FRESHNESS = EFFICIENCY. You cannot have one without the other.The key to all our skin care is FRESHNESS. A skin care product can comprise the highest-quality premium oils… or the rarest botanical extracts … or only natural and organic ingredients… but efficacy is essentially negated if the formulation is not FRESH.This is why Odacité commits each and every day to our three primary pillars of freshness. Each and every product is:

  • Formulated FRESH for each customer upon ordering
  • Dated with a Freshiency™ Date that indicates exactly how long the product will maintain its optimal effectiveness
  • Directly shipped from our lab to your door

This one-of-a-kind preparation & delivery method guarantees that every product fully maintains 100% of its beneficial activity from its antioxidants and vitamins. The end product is the most effective organic skin care line—one that offersvisible results and real change in skin health.

NO PRESERVATIVES (& how we do it)

Typically, skin care products are manufactured to have shelf life of 2-3 years. But how can your skin care be active after years in a jar? Studies show that even the best ingredients degrade over time. Worse, the oils become rancid and filled with free radicals that accelerate the aging process of your skin.

To keep a product “fresh” for three years, guess what you need to fill it with… preservatives!

Since our products are made Fresh For You and never sit on store shelves, there is NO need for preservatives or harmful chemicals.

OUR INGREDIENTS: The best of the best (of the best!)

  • Each ingredient in our products is meticulously hand-selected by our CEO to ensure the ultimate in antioxidant activity, effectiveness, freshness and potency. Every ingredient serves a purpose in all formulations, and we absolutely do not include unnecessary fillers of any kind.
  • Our ingredients are chemical-free botanicals that are either organic or wildcrafted in remote natural areas far from pollution.
  • Our oils are cold-pressed in order to bring you the highest content of antioxidants and vitamins, preserving the life force of each ingredient.
  • We only use fresh, pure and organic bioactive nutrients your skin needs to feel alive, healthy and young.

ALWAYS CRUELTY FREE

We test all our products on real people (our CEO first) and never, ever on animals.”

____________________________________

My Thoughts:

I love that Odacite offers a discovery kit–one for every skin type. The one I received is designed for oily skin. I would describe my skin as combination/oily, having the most oil issues during the warmer months. i found that these products suited my skin type well.

It was a great way to get a real feel for their range of products through this kit. Sometimes, I’ll receive just a cleanser and toner (which is great!) but getting the whole line in sample form is even greater–plus it gives you a realistic idea of how your skin reacts and takes to all of the products before you invest in the full size.

In the last few months, I am made it a habit to only wash my face once a day, to avoid over cleansing and stripping my skin of its natural oils. So, when my skin is grimy and dirty after a day’s worth of yard work and exercising, I love a good facial exfoliation. Thus, the first product I reached for and tried was the jojoba bead exfoliant. This exfoliator is incredibly gentle. You could massage it very intensely into your skin without risk of irritation. The beads themselves are silky feeling–soothing and lightly cleansing. The rejuvenating cleanser is very smooth and milky, very creamy and acts as a mild cleanser. It will not strip your skin, but will give it a bit of a clean refresh.

I loved following up with the two different toners they sent me. Both the mint & green tea and the rose & neroli toners work nicely after a mild cleanser because they help balance the oil left on your skin, help close up your pores and add an extra boost of nutrients before you apply your moisturizer. These toners both smell wonderful–very minty and rosey, respectively.

I found it interesting that Odacite makes both a day and a night cream. Many might find this normal, but I’m so used to using the same serum any time I’m moisturizing. I’m assuming that Odacite’s night cream contains ingredients more effective in allowing skin to heal, rejuvenate and recover over night–as well as being a tad more dense. In contrast, the day cream is light and wakes up your skin. It doesn’t feel goopy or heavy, as it soaks into your skin very well and thoroughly.

I did not receive the night time repair serum, as pictured in Odacite’s graphic above, but I did get to try the eye cream. I definitely neglect to seek out products that are designed for the skin around the eyes. I typically just spread whatever organic facial serum around my eyes, covering my entire face and neck. This eye cream is similar in consistency to the night cream. Its a nice way to nourish and pamper your eyes at the end of the day. I typically shower before bed and apply all of my toners and creams afterwards. My skin feels fresh and rejuvenated when I wake up in the morning.

One thing that sets this brand apart (that I’ve never seen before) is Odacite’s freshiency date. This is very unique and important because many of these fresh, organic ingredients do have a shelf life (and should!) because that means they are not using preservatives. Cruelty free is also a good sign. The CEO tests them first–love that! Good things here…Kudos, Odacite!

I’d recommend this line for someone looking for a gentle line of organic skin care products that will not irritate even the most sensitive skin.

Annmarie Gianni Skin Care Review

Annmarie Gianni Skin Care

Overall Rating: 5 Stars

About Ann Marie Gianni Skin Care:

“Annmarie Gianni is an internationally known author, health advocate, personality and founder of Annmarie Gianni Skin Care.

Just a few years ago, Annmarie started to take a hard look at the products she was putting on her skin. In just a few short days of research, what she found shocked her.

Skin care products were severely under-regulated and most contained ingredients that weren’t safe at almost any amount. Even products that claimed they were organic or natural had hidden preservatives and other nasty additives.

She was frustrated and motivated to find a better option, because she realized so many people were using these supposedly “natural” products.

What she found was not encouraging. Many of the truly natural products weren’t up to her standards of quality or effectiveness.

It wasn’t long until she realized that if she wanted to have a truly clean and natural skin care line, she would have to do it herself.

So she did and Annmarie Gianni Skin Care was founded to provide a clean, natural skin care experience using natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients.

Annmarie now spends her time educating audiences around the United States about how to preserve your beauty and longevity from the inside out as well as what to look for when you’re searching for a skin care line that will keep your skin glowing and vibrant. She can be seen as a regular co-host on the popular online health show “The Renegade Health Show” at www.RenegadeHealth.com.

Annmarie has also trained as a massage therapist, athletic trainer and has run a successful personal training business in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Currently Annmarie and her husband and author Kevin are living in an RV and traveling the United States spreading the word of good health and good skin care. When she’s not being a business woman, training others, or hosting her weekly internet show, Annmarie enjoys traveling, being outside and preparing healthy meals. She loves to hike and run in the woods, and spend time with her cat Jonny 5.”

As you can see in the photo, Annmarie provided me with a wide range of samples to try–incredibly generous! This is one of those reviews that is very easy for me to write because to put it simply: “I approve.” These products are obviously thought out, have pure & organic ingredients and are created by a passionate individual.

I want to take a slightly different approach to writing this review….and give more of an overall picture and summary of the products, rather than depicting each one. That way, the “This product is great!” comments of mine don’t get redundant! 🙂

Here is a list of the products that I sampled:

thumbnail.asp-2

Citrus Mint Facial Cleanser

thumbnail.asp

Aloe-Herb Cleanser

thumbnail.asp-3

Ayurvedic Facial Scrub

thumbnail.asp-4

Repair Serum

thumbnail.asp-5

Purifying Mud Mask

thumbnail.asp-6

Herbal Facial Oil

thumbnail.asp-7

Coconut Honey Mask

thumbnail.asp-8

Neroli Toning Mist

I truly felt like every single one of these products was a treat to use. Even better was reading the ingredient lists and knowing that I’m putting good things onto my skin! For example, here is the ingredient list for the Citrus Mint Facial Cleanser:

“Ingredients:

Love, Herb-Infused Organic Aloe Vera Gel (Organic Aloe vera, Organic Lavender flowers, Organic Lemon balm leaves, Organic Neem leaves, Organic Rosemary leaves, Organic Echinacea flowers, Organic Life Everlasting flowers, Organic Calendula flowers, Organic Comfrey leaves, Organic Plantain leaves, Organic Malva flowers); Saponified olive oil; Witch Hazel Distillate; Vegetable glycerin; Aspen bark extract; Xanthan gum; Organic Lemon oil; Organic Rosemary oil; Organic Lemon myrtle oil; Organic Peppermint oil. pH 5.5.”

I don’t have anything critical to say about it. I’m thoroughly impressed with Annmarie and these products. It’s truly one great product after the next.

Something that I have been extra cognizant of lately is the pH of the skin care I’m using. This is important because products that impact your skin’s pH too much can cause problems like eczema, acne and/or dry skin. I love that Annmarie mentions the pH and it is very close to the pH that our skin is normally at (approximately 5.5 on the pH scale).

I would recommend this line of products to anyone! I believe that acne sufferers will benefit from these products the most. Cleansing once a day and following up with the facial oils or serums each evening has worked well for me. I do one of the masks once a week for an extra skin detox. The neroli mist was great for a post-workout skin spritz (when I didn’t want to cleanse my face, but wanted a little pick-me-up). The lavender flowers that were enclosed were an extra treat (lavender has a calming and soothing affect on the skin & body). I brewed it with peppermint leaves and drank it as a tea. It was fresh, flowery and delicious.

About Honey Girl Organics’ Founders:

“Anthony Maxfield

I keep bees as a hobby here in Hawaii, and originally developed these crèmes for my wife, Gwen. One day during the honey harvest, after I had squeezed the honey out of the beeswax cappings, she noticed how smooth my hands were. Later she asked me if I thought I could make a lotion that would leave her skin in as good a condition as my hands were. After experimenting for about a year, I found that when beeswax was emulsified in extra virgin olive oil, the skin would rapidly drink it in and feel silky and nourished.

We’ve been making these products for many years and been giving them to our friends and families to use. Everyone always comments how great they are.

Gwen Maxfield

I was born and raised the child of show biz parents in Los Angeles, so make-up, beauty and health have always been important to me. Later I attended More University and studied Lifestyles & Communications. It was there that I met my future husband and where we both later attained our PhDs.

Being the proud mother of four young men and having been an avid student of health for many years, I have learned that the quality of what you put into your body as well as what you put on your skin is extremely important. I now eat mostly organic raw fruits and vegetables and use mostly organic and natural products on my skin.

Christina Sirlin

A native of Germany, I moved to the Philadelphia area as a child with my family.

I’ve always been interested in natural curatives, which led me to become a Chiropractor in NY. Interested in a better climate and proximity to More U., I moved to Hawaii and came across these crèmes. After using them with extraordinary results I began recommending them to people across the country. Many of my personal friends and clients have expressed great delight as well as relief to come across such effective crèmes whose unique ingredients are all natural and organic.”

facial_scrub

Facial Scrub

Honey Girl Organics’ Description:

“Our Facial Scrub whisks away dead skin cells and increases blood circulation, helping to diminish fine lines. This Scrub leaves your skin plumper, younger looking, and feeling silky smooth. This organic skincare is good for all skin types.

Directions: Slightly moisten your face and gently apply the Facial Scrub in a circular motion. Avoid the delicate areas around your eyes and mouth. Moisten fingertips as needed to adjust exfoliation. Rinse with lukewarm water and remove excess Facial Scrub with a washcloth. Follow the Facial Scrub with one of our moisturizers such as Face & Eye Cream or Night Cream. Our Facial Scrub may be used once or twice per week.

Ingredients: Organic aloe gel, organic coconut butter, super fine granulated cane sugar, Raw Pupukea Honey, organic diatomaceous earth, papaya and pineapple enzymes, essential oil.

Hive ingredients are harvested from our holistically managed beehives.”

My Description & Thoughts:

I love the ingredients, I love the ultra rich texture, I love how gently it exfoliates, I LOVE this facial scrub. I have kept it in my shower and have used it in place of my other facial soaps and cleansers for a while. I believe that this facial scrub is perfect for my skin in the winter months. Normally my skin is oily and hard to manage (during the warmer months), but my skin tends to crave more moisture than normal during the colder months.

After I use this product in the shower, I lightly since the grittiness off and what remains is a sufficient amount of moisture–so that my skin doesn’t need me to follow up with a moisturizer or serum. So for me its really been 1 products in one: a cleanser, exfoliator and moisturizer.

I would highly recommend this scrub, as it does great things for my skin and I’ve really enjoyed using it. It’s especially a great product for those with dry and troubled skin.

I’ll say this (in advance) about all of these skin products. The use of raw honey is a big deal to me. I’m a huge fan of the healing effects of raw honey. In raw honey, all of the nutrients that nature intended to be in there still remain. Heating honey will kill those helpful nutrients that are so helpful to skin. Good job, Honey Girl! 🙂

super_skin_food

Super Skin Food

Honey Girl Organics’ Description:

“This rich and nourishing organic skincare formula is the best available for dry, cracked, and rough skin. Our healing formula includes royal jelly and Vitamin E to deeply penetrate and nourish worn and damaged areas like elbows and knees.

Ingredients: Organic extra virgin olive oil, Beeswax with pollen & propolis, Raw Pupukea Honey, purified water, Vitamin E, oil of rosewood and other essential oils, Royal Jelly.

Hive ingredients are harvested from our holistically managed beehives.”

My Description & Thoughts:

Dense & robust, a little bit of this skin food goes a long way. I use it after cleansing as a moisturizer. Contrary to what you may think, beeswax will not clog pores. Since it is such a rich concoction, I think it’s a perfect remedy for dry or flakey skin. If you have oily/combination skin like I do, experiment with using just a tiny amount (smaller than a dime size). I’ve found that this is all it takes for my entire face to be adequately quenched.

The ingredients are simple, pure and gentle on blemished skin. Often, troubled skin needs gentle facial products, as chemical ridden products can often exacerbate the irritation. Products like this one, with a honey base, are often just what problem skin needs to heal.

I’d recommend this product to literally anyone! Any kind of skin could benefit from this skin food–just in different amounts.

rejuvenating_mask

Rejuvenating Mask

Honey Girl Organics’ Description:

“Enhance collagen production and stimulate new cell growth with Honey Girl Organics’ Rejuvenating Mask. It softens and moisturizes while providing the skin with the nutrition it needs to look and feel its best. This organic skincare Mask is good for all skin types.

Directions: Cleanse the face and leave slightly moist. Gently apply the Rejuvenating Mask, avoiding delicate areas around the eyes and mouth. Leave on for 10-15 minutes while relaxing. Wash off with lukewarm water. Pat skin dry and apply a moisturizer like our Face and Eye Cream or Night Cream.

Ingredients: Raw Pupukea Honey, French green clay, organic diatomaceous earth, Hawaiian blue green algae, Royal Jelly, propolis.

Hive ingredients are harvested from our holistically managed beehives.”

My Description & Thoughts:

I love the routine of applying this mask and then drinking tea & relaxing for 15 minutes before washing it off. The consistency of this mask is ideal–its rich enough to stay put on my face and it doesn’t flake off like some masks do.

It seems like the clay and algae really clarify and detoxifying my skin and the honey keeps the mask from drying out my skin. I really don’t even need to follow up this mask with a moisturizer. Skin is fresh and clean and healthy feeling after using it.

Another great way to use this mask is to keep the jar in the shower and then apply it to skin after the warm shower water has opened up the pores on your face. This helps the mask to soak into pores better and be even more effective.

I recommend it to everyone, regardless of skin type. It will work wonders on the texture and moisture of any kind of skin.
