A lot has been said about Resveratrol as a powerful antioxidant which is produced from the skin of grapes.

Resveratrol, as well a combination of ingredients, can help your skin achieve a smoother more supple appearance addressing our fine lines and wrinkles.

It is derived from the grapes that produce red wines; my favorites are reds Merlot, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Malbec etc. my list goes on and on.

Vine Vera utilizes this powerful antioxidant in many of their skincare products.

I have a brand to discuss today that you might not have heard of, but you'll want to know about! Cactus Skincare is an Australian brand that uses natural and organic ingredients all with cactus extracts. I was able to try some samples from their FABULOUS line of skincare, and let me tell you, I was impressed! Along with other benefits, Cactus Skincare offers products that suit your skin type/problems (dry, oily, combination, etc.), which helps in the selection process of what product to use. My skin tends to be more on the drier side, so I want to cover the products that focus on dry skin and how they worked for me.

Cactus Samples 7.21.13 Certified FabulousI'll start with the Intense Hydrating Creme. This cream is suitable for dry skin or to use as a night cream. I personally really like using a night cream, letting the product work while I sleep. After cleansing or exfoliating before bed, it is a great rich cream to apply and let it work its magic! This Intense Hydrating Creme was a great moisturizer and my skin felt radiant, nourished, and restored in the morning! It absorbs well and does not leave a greasy residue, however it does leave a protective hydrating barrier over the skin. It also smells absolutely divine! Fresh, natural, flowery and is in no way overly fragrant. 

Now for a day cream, I tried the Nature's Anti-Oxidant Creme for normal to dry skin. This is a lighter (yet still very moisturizing) cream that contains mineral sunscreen, great to put on in the morning before you walk out into the bright sun! It was easy to incorporate this cream into my morning skincare routine, as it absorbs really well and I can easily apply makeup afterwards. With vitamins and minerals to enrich and nourish skin, I felt good about using this product. Not only was it moisturizing, but I felt that it helpd improve my skin, leaving a smooth appearance and texture! This cream can also be used to help soothe sun damaged skin!

I also really liked the Lemon Myrtle Cleanser & Gentle Exfoliant (both suitable for all skin types). The cleanser smells especially fresh and the exfoliant was gentle enough on my skin and left a bright surface ready for the Intense Hydrating Cream!

When reading more about Cactus Skincare, I came across this description of the brand that says, "Cactus Skincare creates a healthy working environment for skin by retaining moisture and giving the skin the nurtrients it needs to repair itself." I think we often look for products to heal our skin on thier own, but I liked the idea of your skin being able to repair itself with the ingredients and environment created by the skincare product. This idea definelty came through in their products and if you are also intrigued by the skincare line, be sure to check them out on their website www.cactusskincare.com

There are many moisturizing options out on the market today: face creams, serums, oils, moisturizing cleansers, night creams, you name it! Sometimes our skin needs these different options, especially throughout the changing seasons, but it's also a matter of figuring out what type of product your skin responds best to. Trial and error my friends. Hopefully our reviews here at Certified F.A.B.U.L.O.U.S. can help shorten that trial and error period for you, and always read the product descriptions carefully to make sure it is suitable for your skin type. 

Orico London Superico Vitamin Rich 6.25.13 Certified FabulousSo for today, I have a face oil to talk about. I don't use face oils often, I tend to use body oils more. I think oils can be tricky; they need to absorb well, because I don't want to feel greasy all day. So I was glad when I tried Orico London Superico Vitamin Rich Face Oil and it worked so well with my skin!

This oil has all natural plant oils to help dry, dehydrated skin and restore the natural moisture balance. It's extra soothing with an aromatherapy blend of essential lavender, patchoili, geranium, and bergamot to "sooth and uplift the mind." Treat your skin and calm your thoughts with this face oil! I can see myself using this oil and lot more in the winter, when my skin is absolutely parched and it needs to absorb all the nourishment it can get! The aromatherapy will also be very much appreciated during the bland winter months! But during the spring and summer months it works well for a night treatment. I wake up with absolutely no greasy feeling, and my skin looks nourished and hydrated! If you like using oils, you can use this Vitamin Rich Face Oil morning and night, just lightly massage over the face and the neck. It absorbed really well (and fast) for me, and did not leave a greasy layer, if I applied it in the morning or the night.

You can buy Orico London Superico Vitamin Rich Face Oil for $47.00 at www.oricolondon.com 

Overall I think Orico London Superico Vitamin Rich Face Oil is a quality oil that will provide you skin with the nourishment you need and the absorption qualities we want, leaving your face hydrated, renewed, and with a great calming scent!

This week we have had the outstanding pleasure to review a skin care line that I fell in love with. PRIMAVERA offers certified natural skincare and aromatherapy products that hold the purest joys of nature. Rooted in the philosophy that every day is a chance to bring nature closer – to discover balance with the outside world and the world within – PRIMAVERA’s mission is to share the skin and sensory benefits of healing plants. That mission statement is taken from their website, www.primaveralife.com, and they go on to say that they "developed a deep, collective understanding of traditional plant therapy and created fair trade partnerships with a worldwide community of organic farmers. Our products are intended to connect customers with nature every day because we believe that feeling close to nature creates a sense of balance. Just as the Earth regulates seasons, life cycles and ecosystems, nature regulates the rhythms of our own bodies and minds. As our tagline – Pure nature. Perfect balance. – implies, by allowing pure nature to be part of daily life, we are also inviting the opportunity to discover perfect balance.". 

04172013 Primavera intensive renewing cream

A company with that message made me feel completely at home with the brand and this was before I tried the skincare line! I was given the Rose Pomegranate Intensive Renewing Cream from their Revitalizing skincare line and right away the scent caught my attention. It smelled amazing! I was glad this was a product I was going to be keeping on my face and not washing off :) After I cleansed my skin thoroughly that night I applied the renewing cream to my face and loved how easily it smoothed over my skin and then eventually was absorbed leaving my with instant hydration. When I woke up the next day and checked out my complexion I was amazed at how well it looked in just one night! My overall skin was in top shape with more of an even tone and texture leaving it in perfect condition for my makeup application. 

As I continued use of the cream I saw more and more improvements which is always a plus when you invest in a skin care line. Made to help lift and firm, delivering antioxidants to increase elasticity for more youthful skin, this product is something I can not live without! 

Boosted with Benefits!!!

For this week I have a great product from Primavera - the Moisturizing Lip Balm. This product is certified natural with 95% organic plant ingredients so you can feel good about putting this on your lips!

This balm has more of an oil consistency as opposed to a creamy lip balm but it absorbs well into your lips and seals in your lips natural moisture. It has a bit of a citrus scent but it's not overwhelming. It also has a little shine to it so it looks good on its own or over a lipstick. It conditioned and soothed my dry lips nicely and I didn't need to continuously reapply.

COOLA has developed an extraordinary delightful and natural hand lotion bar. I tried the GrapefruitPeppermint all natural shea butter Hand Lotion Bar and fell in love. This is my first time working with a hand lotion bar and I found the experience therapeutically enriching.

 

COOLA Grapefruit Peppermint Hand Lotion Bar has become a “must have”. During the winter 04112013 Certified Fabulous Coola Grapefruit Peppermint Hand Lotion Barmonths my knuckles become very dry and cracked. COOLA has designed this Hand Lotion Bar to help hydrate your hands, and they have succeeded in their endeavor. My knuckles were so cracked it actually hurt to bend my fingers. The first time I used this product the results were visible. The hand lotion bar actually appeared to be erasing the dry lines and cracks. I worked the product into my knuckles every evening for a few weeks and the cracks literally disappeared. The warmth from my knuckles turned the ingredients into a deeply moisturizing and soothing balm that healed the cracks. After applying the Hand Lotion Bar to my knuckles and rubbing it in, the palms of my hands also benefited, they too felt wonderfully soft.

 

 COOLA developed this product using all natural ingredients. The Hand Lotion Bar is designed so you use only the amount necessary, there’s no waste. COOLA packaged this product so it’s perfect when you’re traveling.

I spend a fair amount of time outside during the winter and when it’s really cold and dry, my overly 03232013 Sensitive Touch 5min SOS Cream certified fabuloussensitive skin (especially my cheeks) gets irritated, red & blotchy. Finally a relief cream that instantly restores my skin in 5 minutes! Lumene Sensitive Touch SOS Intense Cream is clinically proven to relieve skin irritation with Skin Calming Technology™  while moisturizing and conditioning to help the skin become more resistant to the elements.

Here’s how it works:

This incredibly rich cream includes linseed (or flax seed) extract and Pro Vitamin B5 that contains
skin-conditioning and healing properties that restore, hydrate and strengthen the skin’s elasticity.

Lumene Sensitive Touch SOS Intense Cream is fragrance free which I greatly appreciate and although thick and rich, it does not feel heavy nor greasy. I use it on my elbows and lips too! It is by far, the best relief cream I have used.

So remember to take care of your dry, irritated skin, but more importantly, take care of yourself.

Hello everyone! I hope you are starting your week off well! I am well over winter and there’s still a long way to go :( But instead of focusing on the sad, I’ll write about something good… I have found my new favorite lotion! I thought I already had a favorite, but I was wrong! No7 Completely Quenched Moisturizing Body Lotion absolutely blew me away, and made me raise my lotion standards.

02192013 No7 Completely Quenching Moisturising Body Lotion boots certified fabulous

First off, this lotion did everything it claimed to do for me - “light airy and quickly absorbed, it vanishes into thirsty skin to quench and care all day long. Softens, smoothes and evens out texture to leave skin looking healthy and radiant.” Need I say more? Well this lotion actually pulls through. The scent is exactly what I like in a lotion; smells fresh, clean, and is not overpowering. The texture is not thick or greasy, instead it absorbs quickly into my skin (something I always look for in a lotion) and my skin stays moisturized all day. The really exciting thing about this lotion is that it smoothes out the texture of my skin. I have never used a body lotion that noticeably changed the texture of my skin, so I was quite surprised when my skin was the softest and smoothest it has ever been! On top of that my skin looks brighter and healthier! This lotion is also hypo-allergenic, so it’s great for those with sensitive skin. I can’t wait for this winter to end because I will be ready for those short shorts come spring/summer with this lotion as my weapon!

At $10.99 I will be buying this product again and again, but if you’re looking for a lower priced option, check out Vaseline Intensive Rescue Repairing Moisture Hypoallergenic Lotion for $6.99 at a local CVS or $3.59 on amazon.com. 

Higher option - VMV Hypoallergenics Re-Everything Face-Hand-Body Lotion - which also helps to achieve younger-looking skin. This lotion is priced at $45.

I love a good mask, especially in the winter when my face tends to be drier than normal.   The right mask will leave your face feeling hydrated and soft and Montagne Jeunesse, Virgin Olive Face Masque did just that and more for these dry cheeks. A wonderful scent of which I still can’t seem to identify, a creamy thick smooth application and a silky soft finish put this mask at the top of my list.

While olive oil deep cleans and combats dry skin, the added moisturizing benefits of shea butter and cocoa butter leave your skin super smooth. I almost always apply a moisturizer after using a mask, but quite honestly, I didn’t need it with this super moisturizing delight.

And as we have been blogging about all week, Montagne Jeunesse offers so many yummy flavors, it’s truly a treat for your face! Strawberry Souffle, Fudge Sauna, White Chocolate, Dark Chocolate! Oh my, one for every day of the week!

So remember to treat your face this winter to a luxurious face mask but more importantly, take care of yourself!
