The process of switching to more natural products is a slow adventure. Lately I have hit the jackpot of AH-MAZING beauty and skin care products. My wonderful friend and blogger Krissy from Krissy's Makeup Nook informed me about a sample offered by Annmarie Gianni Skin Care! Normally the sample cost $10 but for this one day the fee was waived. I believe it was a one day offer to promote better-for-you skin care.
The packaging that it arrived in is absolutely gorgeous. I have been using the products for a few days and have noticed a substantial difference in my skin! These products are luxury high quality items. After checking EWG's Skin Deep Annmarie scores a 2! Which is awesome! That means very little toxic chemicals to soak through our skin and disrupt our delicate hormone system. (Learn more about EWG)
The Aloe-Herb Cleanser is an oil base cleanser. How this works is oil attaches to oil, leaving your skin without over drying. It neutralizes the pH-balance of your skin. It gently removes makeup, even tough eyeliner and mascara. The full size is priced at $24.95 for 50ML. I didn't consider this cleanser to be exceptional. I have other cleansers that can give me the same result at a much cheaper price. I think might have enjoyed it more if it had felt/smelled refreshing; maybe something more minty. It smells very slightly of lemon and herbs, which isn't bad. It just doesn't make me think clean. It's not a bad all natural organic cleanser. I just wish it was cheaper.
The Anti-Aging Serum is an aloe based serum. It contains ingredients to tighten and for firmer looking skin. The website claims it also helps protect from environmental stressors. The full size is priced at $49.95 for 15ML. (GEEEZZEEE!!!!!) Super expensive! BUT would I consider it worth the investment, yes. I did notice firmer and tighter skin after just one use! I know I'm only in my mid-30's, but I have started to notice changes with the elasticity with my skin. Also a little goes a long way with this product. It didn't take but a pea-size for a full face. So I can only imagine how long 15ml would last. This lightly smells of roses, not over powering. I hope I get this for my birthday!
The Anti-Aging Facial Oil is a herb-infused oil full of antioxidants. The website claims it helps firm and tighten while reducing the appearance of fine lines. I noticed these claims after just one use! My skin has a luminous glow after using it. My skin was smoother to the touch. It was so nice, that I didn't feel the need or want to wear makeup! It was glorious! My skin looked supple. The full size is priced at $49.95 for 15ML. AGAIN GEEEEEZZE!!!! That's a huge hit to the wallet! But do I want it, YES! A resounding YES!!!!! This oil was everything it claims to be and more. My skin glowed. The smell isn't my favorite, I smell mainly jojoba. I'm willing to love the smell for the results! The glorious results!
