Here's the sampling of what I tried and my honest thoughts....
1.) Valencia 0range all purpose lotion 8 oz.
This formula contains a potent concentration of Vitamin C, Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter and Organic Beeswax. These are just a few of the wonderful ingredients in this product. You will love how smooth and silky your skin feels after each use. And the orange smell? Spectacular! Like a trip to Florida. This lotion doesn't feel sticky either. I hate sticky lotions. Don't you? Just wish the bottle was bigger! Much bigger. Hehe.
2.) Vitamin C moisturizer 2 oz.
So I use it as a night cream because I was unable to smooth my foundation on top of it. I wear a powder mineral foundation and this moisturizer is too sticky to use in conjunction with that type of foundation. It makes my makeup appear too heavy because it clings to it. However, it's great around the eyes, especially those dark circles. A true brightener. So if you wear a liquid foundation or no makeup at all, this product might be spot-on for you.
3.) Grapefruit glycolic Wash 4 oz.
I love how fresh my skin feels after each use. And I'm at that "special age" where I get both wrinkles and acne. Blah. But I have noticed an improvement in my breakouts since using this product. Just go easy on this wash, it's not cheap and a tiny bit will be enough to cleanse your face.
4.) Tea tree + protein herbal shampoo & peppermint herbal conditioner
No more harsh chemicals stripping away at my hair. Just be aware that when you use chemical- free products without all the crap, they tend not to lather. This is a good thing. You'll have to work the product more into your scalp and leave it on longer to be effective.
So what do I think? This shampoo and conditioner set is awesome and works very well. It not only cleanses nicely but makes my hair sleek. My tip? Leave each product on at least 2 minutes if not longer before washing out. If you can leave the conditioner on 30 minutes, you'll love the results even more. It coats the hair and makes it smoother and more moisturized.
Yes there are other fantastic shampoos and conditioners on the market. I know them all! But these two make a great team. But to be a big fan of this dynamic duo, you'll also have to be a tea tree and peppermint enthusiast. I know I am!
5.) Vitamin enhanced face firming serum 2 oz. - yours to win!
I use just a tad bit in the morning and at night, especially around the fine lines around my eyes. After I wash my face at night, I apply just a drop of this product all over my face and love how silky my skin looks in the morning. Seriously, this product is a gem! What a great moisturizer. And the smell is sensationally super.
Here's the company info about the serum.....
Niacinamide is the biologically active form of niacin, which is also known as Vitamin B3. When combined, Retinol Palmitate (Vitamin A) and DMAE have been shown to have a firming effect on facial and neck tissue and help diminish fine lines.
A quick note on their prices...
