Our skin is damaged each day due to environmental pollutants, oxidative stress, and chemical laden cosmetic products. The amount of free radicals waging war on the skin quickly depletes our natural protective resources.

Our premier formulation is backed by scientific research into the efficacy of each of the natural ingredients we have carefully selected.

Our proprietary blend of *skin super oils compliment our 20% Vitamin C base, leading to a powerful antioxidant treatment. Each natural ingredient was chosen to support and enhance Vitamin C’s efficacy on the skin, leading to more well-rounded serum to add to your daily skin care ritual.

Our Even Glow Serum will repair, refresh, and renew your skin; restoring evenness to your complexion, giving you an extra boost of confidence each time you look in the mirror.

We know this all sounds too good to be true… but soon you’ll see. 🙂

SUPERIOR INGREDIENTS:

Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.

In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin.

***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C’s effect on the skin.

ORGANIC ROSEHIP SEED OIL & ORGANIC SEA BUCKTHORN OIL – These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend – Vitamin C

RESISTEM (Plant Stem Cells) – This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

HYALURONIC ACID(Botanical) – Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

GREEN TEA EXTRACT- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.

98% Natural Ingredients (see below for a description of our Key Ingredients chosen specifically to enchance Vitamin C efficacy on the skin)

EVENS SKIN TONE: Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration with this new generation Vitamin C Serum. Quickly refresh uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

INCREASES GLOW & RADIANCE:
Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

ABSORBS RAPIDLY:
Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.

BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION:
The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.

REDUCES WRINKLES & FINE LINES:
Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.

I was able to try this product and really enjoyed the experience. I was worried to put what looked like oil on my face but my face thoroughly enjoyed it and thirsted for the moisture and vitality it gave my skin. This serum has sky rocketed me into the serum world. I used the whole bottle and then started testing out other serums.

lauren brooke cosmetiques review and giveaway
 I love the message Lauren has and the mission of her company, “To provide women with truly natural and healthy beauty products and to empower women to embrace and celebrate their unique beauty.” Beauty is so many different things to different people and I love the approach they take and the value they put into finding great quality ingredients.
I was able to review the Natural Colour Collection Set and choose the Netural Tones set. This set includes Toffee & Sandalwood Eye Colours, Summer Cheek Colour, Winterberry Botanical Lip Gloss.

The Toffee & Sandalwood Eye Colours are perfect for fall and winter and really are a great neutral colors for every woman. I love the shimmer in the toffee it went well with my eye color. I really enjoyed using the Sandalwood as both a crease color and with my eyeliner brush as an eyeliner. These colors lasted all day and did not irritate my eyes at all, thanks to the natural ingredients.

The Summer Cheek Colour is a beautiful color, a pale pink, that is perfect for enhancing that fall rosy natural blush we get from the cool air this time of year. I really love this blush and have been using in everyday since it arrived! I know it look kind of odd on my hand but scroll down and you will see it blends well on the face.
lauren brooke cosmetiques Lip Gloss
I saved the best for last the Winterberry Botanical Lip Gloss is my favorite lip gloss in my bag right now! I love the applicator, the color, the silkiness, the smell-Everything! I can’t wait to add more of these lip glosses to my collection soon. I especially love that I don’t have to worry when my daughter are in my bag and run off to put this on their lips because it’s all natural-although I do worry they won’t give it back.
My favorite thing about this particular set is that selecting it as a Holiday gift is so easy because it comes in three different choices with pre-selected colors that are perfect for those skin types. The first is the cool set which is perfect for fair or light-skinned women, the second is the netural set which is perfect for medium-skinned women (Just pick this one if you aren’t sure, men! *Hint*), and the last is the warm tones set which is perfect for women with darker skin.

Sets include:

Cool Tones: Wine & Lilac Eye Colours, Victorian Rose Cheek Colour, Berry Blush Botanical Lip Gloss.

Netural Tones: Toffee & Sandalwood Eye Colours, Summer Cheek Colour, Winterberry Botanical Lip Gloss.

Warm Tones: Taupe & Tahiti Eye Colours, Desert Sunset Cheek Colour, Coral Botanical Lip Gloss.

Here is my look with my Netural Set.

Mary Kay Review + My Favs

Mary Kay Review

 

I had the pleasure of attending a Mary Kay Party at my sister’s house this past month. I was able to test so many great products from Mary Kay. If you have never been to a Mary Kay Party let me give you a little heads up, you will enjoy the pampering! Our consultant Tara was amazing! She helped us find the right products for our individual skin type and helped us clarify our skin types. She was so generous, we tested out all the facial products, and then applied numerous shades of blush, eye shadows, lip sick and lip gloss. Here are a few I fell in love with!

Mary Kay @ Play in Earth bound Review by Mom 2 54321

This is the Mary Kay @ Play eye shadow in Earth Bound. I love this one the MOST! I feel it goes with my skin color and brown eyes so well. I used the lighter shade as a highlight, then the brown shade as my crease color, and the green shade as a liner. These colors really kept up with me all day-at the end of the day, Rey even noticed it when he got home from work.

Mary Kay @ Play in Sunset Beach Review by Mom 2 54321

This one is also a Mary Kay @ Play eye shadow in Sunset Beach. I really thought I would be able to play with the purple but at the last-minute I actually subbed in the brown from the Earth Bound instead. I used the lighter white color as my highlight, the coral color-which is the whole reason I had to have this trio-as my crease, and the brown color from the Earth Bound trio as my liner. I will play around with the purple color and see how I like it + post to instagram to show you all.

Mary Kay's Nourishine Plus Lip Gloss in Fancy Nancy Review by Mom 2 54321

 

This is Fancy Nancy and I love her!! This color is just so perfect for my everyday wear. Not too flashy, but just the right amount of SPARKLE & GLAM-I LOVE IT! I also love that it smells heavenly, isn’t sticky, and is so moisturizing.

I can’t wait to head back for more! I really want to get the bronzer and a few blushes next!

San Diego Bath & Body Co. Review + *Giveaway* 6/3-6/17

San Diego Bath & Body Co. Review + Giveaway

 

The San Diego Bath & Body Co. was established in 2008 and is family owned. They specialize in aluminum-free deodorants, natural soaps, organic lotions, bath salts and body scrubs. All of their products are handcrafted using natural, organic, vegan ingredients. They ship all across the US from San Diego.

I was sent the Pineapple Coconut Exfoliating Body Scrub, the Travel Size SPF 30 Lotion Bar in Lavender, and the Travel Size SPF 30 Lotion Bar in Patchouli Orange. I was also sent the Travel size Natural Deodorant in Lavender when I signed up to receive their emails. You can sign up here. I have tested all these on myself as well as my children and we love them! I am placing an order for a few more sticks of the Travel Size SPF 30 Lotion Bar in Lavender and I want to try the Lemongrass one too! I am also going to get the Orange Blossom Lotion for Caydence because she has eczema and really needs chemical free products for her skin.

The first product I was so excited to try was the scrub! I received the Pineapple Coconut Exfoliating Body Scrub and I am in love with it! I really enjoyed using this scrub because the scent was so natural, not over-bored, but soft and sweet from the pineapple and the coconut added a hint of tropical lust. The scrub helped exfoliate and remove dead skin from my hands, elbows, knees, heels, and ankles. It didn’t leave my skin dry or tight but soft and moist-I really LOVE IT and I can’t tell you enough that this is a must have for showing some skin this summer!

San Diego Bath & Body Co. Review + Giveaway1

The next products I received were the Travel Size SPF 30 Lotion Bars in Lavender and Patchouli Orange. I really love that these are travel size because I am often running out the door just on time and don’t have time to apply sunscreen until we get to where we need to be. Which is why this size is perfect and the stick makes it very easy to quickly apply then continue on with our busy schedule. The lavender smells like a bouquet of dried lavender-just so peaceful and calming. The Patchouli+Orange is a stronger, deeper, musky smell with a hint of bright orange. I am putting the lavender on the girls and the patchouli orange on the boys and think these are a must for our upcoming trip to Disney.

San Diego Bath & Body Co. Review + Giveaway3
