This serum felt so good on my skin which is usually dry and dehydrated. It is in an airless pump bottle with a lightweight creamy white consistency.

Despite the name of the particular Circ-Cell's skincare products they in no way contain blood or blood substitute, however, it will provide you with that same oxygen-rich results of healthy skin! 

Circ-Cell is developed by a team of scientists, researchers, and skin care experts and the products are interestingly free of harmful elements, parabens and fragrances. Additionally, they never tested on animals and are environmentally safe!

Okay, so there is no blood in them and they have no bad ingredients...so how does it work? The company thinks that todays beauty culture promotes over-exfoliation and forced cellular turnover, while Circ-Cell believes youthful, radiant skin stems from improving skin density- building skin up, not tearing it down. They use cutting-edge technologies that work in tandem with your body’s innate biology and processes and the balanced chemistry makes skin firm, bright, and resilient. 

"A healthy blood supply is critical in delivering oxygen, purging carbon dioxide and metabolic waste, keeping cells nourished, and maintaining vibrant, healthy skin. As we age, research suggests stagnant circulation leads to thinning collagen and a reduction in elastin fibers - the structural steel of the skin." www.circcell.com

The name caught my attention so now it was time to actually try it! I happily took home the Circ-Cell: ABO +|- Blood Serum Face Rejuvenation and the Circ-Cell: ABO +|- Blood Serum Rejuvenating Eye Gel to experience them for myself!

Lifeline Skin Care (through its parent company, ISCO) is the first company in the world to discover how to create human non-embryonic stem cells -- and how to take extracts from them. As a result, you need never be concerned that a viable human embryo was damaged or destroyed to create these anti-aging products.

The advanced skincare technology is a one of a kind system! "The theory of how human stem cells produce beneficial effects for human skin cells is based on how stem cells communicate with the cells surrounding them. Human cells have the ability to communicate with each other using various types of signals. These cell-to-cell messages can be in the form of protein molecules that the stem cells send out to instruct their neighboring cells to create new cells either to repair damaged tissue or during early human development. The first stage in the process of creating the serum is to extract these proteins from living parthenogenetic (non-embryonic) stem cells." [SOURCE

Lifeline Skin Care's exclusive anti-aging products are a combination of several discoveries and unique high-technology, patent-pending formulations.

  • They extract critical "messaging molecules" (or proteins) from human, non-embryonic stem cells.  These "messaging molecules" instruct their neighboring cells to divide -- to create a proliferation of new skin cells. 
  • The bioactive growth factors are encapsulated in a lipid bi-layer to both preserve the potency and activity of the growth factors, as well as to ensure their stability and penetration until they have been delivered to the skin.

I happily picked up the LifeLine Defensive Day Moisture Serum and the LifeLine Eye Firming Complex to review! The first product I tried was the LifeLine Eye Firming Complex which was packaged in a perfect delivery system that dispensed just the right amount of product. It had an angled tip that was easy to use and is designed to not contaminate product but dipping your finger in and out of a jar. The other bottles were airless and also dispensed the right amount of product without any worry of contaminating the rest of the product. The eye cream was very soothing and instantly felt very nourishing and hydrating when applied. I could feel the tightening effects around my eye as it absorbed in and I could see instant brightening and radiance from the area around my eyes! I love applying this everyday! It has been nearly a month and my eyes have shown a dramatic difference of smoothing out my fine lines and really plumping my skin improving the health and appearance of my eyes. I don't even have to wear concealer under my eyes :)

Skin care science is what Apothederm is all about. This is a skincare brand that really means business and strives to get to the root of aging and how to prevent it...or at least slow it down...a lot!

Packed with powerful peptide technology like no other – a new generation of patented, bioactive peptides known as SmartPeptides™ is the key element of what makes it work in this skincare line. The SmartPeptides mimic an amino acid sequences of the skin’s own natural protect and restore functions.

These SmartPeptides are highly precise and work differently because they can target a very specific skin problem, such as:

  • The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of elasticity
  • Loss of firmness and definition
  • Appearance of darkened areas or general unevenness of skin tone
  • Rough texture
  • Thinning of the skin

Apothederm skin care sceince smartpeptide firming serum certified fabulous

As you all know I am obsessed with serums so it was a no brainer for me to grab the Apothederm Firming Serum as soon as it arrived in the office. A first look at the product interested me because the box has a picture of Collagen magnified 5 times which makes it interesting, weird and cool at the same time, hah. The stats of success also caught my attention as it said that 94% of clinical study participants reported firmer skin in 14 days. 84% reported a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in 14 days! Pretty impressive.

According to Dr. Owusu the 4 timeless approach to achieving beautiful skin is these simple steps: 1. Cleanse/Exfoliate, 2. Moisturize, 3. Detoxify and 4. Eat Healthy with adequate water intake to nourish your body from inside out. 

It's made easy with her Revitalizing Facial Care Set that includes an exfoliating facial scrub, facial serum and a detoxifying facial mask. My short review is that I LOVE this skincare system! The products were truly amazing and made my skin feel so clean and refreshed! I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Owusu products, it is a skincare system you will look forward to doing each day :)

1. Dr. Owusu Exfoliating Scrub is my dream scrub! It is everything I want in a scrub, not oily or creamy just a nice exfoliation to rid my face of the gunky dead skin cells. My face felt SO clean and smooth after using this! It smelled amazing too, which is always a plus when your putting products on your face! I use this everyday and it didn't dry out my skin, it just improved the tone and texture the more days I used it. This can be used both day and night. Cleanse & Exfoliate = CHECK! 

dr owusu skincare revitalizing exfoliating facial scrub beauty certified fabulous

2. Dr. Owusu Facial Serum is the moisturization part of the plan to hydrate, condition, soften and clarify the skin after using the exfoliating scrub. I adore serums and it makes sense to use on my combination skin type but Dr. Owusu's also provided my dry skin areas with the needed moisture while also regulating the oily/ T-zone area. This felt perfect on my skin and left my complexion flawless and happy :) This can be used day and night too. Moisturize = CHECK!

I have been looking to create a hydrated dewy complexion this fall, but it is not so easy to come by. In order to achieve the true appearance of the hydrated complexion, I have chosen to focus on the skincare products that I have been using rather than makeup (makeup will only give me a slight imitation of the dewy look I'm aiming for). When I looked closely at the ASAP products that came into the Certified Fabulous office, I knew they would be the perfect fit to help achieve the desired hydrated dewy complexion! A little bit about the brand - ASAP is the leading cosmeceutical skin care company in Australia1. Their products are made in Australia from environmentally friendly ingredients that contain:

- no harmful chemicals

- no harsh ingredients

- no artificial fragrances

- no animal derivatives

I had the pleasure, twice now, to visit the celebrity hot spot Guerlain Spa at the famous Waldorf Astoria in NYC so I was thrilled to learn that they had their own beauty and skincare collections! My last visit to the spa I actually experienced the skincare line in my Radiance Facial and then became obsessed with maintaining my complexion from that day on. What better than to be able to do so in the comfort of my own home and for less than daily spa visits!  

guerlain Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Soothing Eye Patch spa luxury celebrity treatment

GUERLAIN skincare uses potent luxury ingredients that are formulated to get results, and the results have shows on more than a few celebrities that hold the brand as their top must-have! GUERLAIN: Super Aqua-Eye Anti-Puffiness Smoothing Eye Patches are packets with cut-out under eye patches soaked in the perfect amount of anti-puffiness serum. An extraordinary instant eye-contour skin smoother that hydrates and strengthens! These fine and translucent eye patches adapt to the shape of the delicate eye area to smooth skin and decongest the eye by reducing puffiness and fighting dark circles. The results are immediate: the eye area looks smoothed and relaxed; the eyes are refreshed and glowing with youth. Easily fake a good night sleep with these! I LOVED the patches and it immediately cooled my hot, tired eyes and instantly calm and smooth them for eye perfection!!! The skin is tightened and brightened flawlessly and I couldn't of been more happy! These work wonders if you have one of those random crying moments too...takes care of that in 10 minutes! I like to wear these when I travel or had a late night, they are the ideal travel companion. $100 for 6 sachets, makes this a splurge you must try at some point!

guerlain abeille royal youth serum antiaging skincare

Another INCREDIBLE treatment I was able to experience, GUERLAIN: Abeille Royal Youth Serum. I was seriously impressed with how well this worked! I saw fine lines fade and smooth out instantly upon application! They promise visible results in only 7 days but I saw a difference right away and it only got better the more I used it. From the product claims: "Bee products are known to be some of the world’s most effective natural healing substances. Born from their active power, a unique serum with Pure Royal Concentrate that stimulates the key mechanisms of the healing process within the skin to help continuously repair wrinkles and promote tissue firmness". The product is slightly thicker than a serum and is almost like a very light lotion, which feels amazing going on the skin and gives immediate hydration but not overdoing it to my combination skin. I look forward every night to applying this and I even add some in the morning before my makeup...I can't get enough of this! I still have nearly a full bottle, yet I am already trying to figure out what I will sacrifice to be able to buy this again! hah. Yeah, it's around $140 a bottle...but SO worth the splurge :)

Natural ingredients are what a lot of people are seeking now when  it comes to skincare and I have been finding myself trying more and more pure products and actually liking it! Yes, natural and organic can make a difference just as much as any other skin care product but without damaging chemical ingredients. Not to say I don't use non-natural skincare, but it is nice to be able to find true winners in the natural arena that I can turn to when I want to change up my beautifying routine! 

AEGEIA skin care is created with 100% natural ingredients and each product contains pure essential oils to promote natural healing and wellness. It is a small brand with a big heart and AMAZING products! Developed in 2001 Rebecca Wachsler created AEGEIA when her eighteen month old daughter developed eczema. Upon much research she conducted she was shocked to discover the number of damaging, synthetic chemicals in the “higher-end” cosmetic products, at that time, to “care” for skin. That is when she decided that the only way to truly eliminate these dangers were to make the products herself.  

After reading up on the brand I was very excited to actually try it! Since I am a lover of serums I took the AEGEIA: Revelation Corrective Serum which is said to stimulate production of new cells and collagen as well as improve skin tone and texture and reduce the appearance of pore size, fine lines, uneven skin tone, irregular pigmentation and superficial acne scars. It also contains my favorite ingredient, Glycolic Acid! I'm happy :)

Aegeia Revelation Corrective Serum 9.11.13 Certified Fabulous

After I washed my face thoroughly I pumped the serum into my hand and I immediately loved how the serum had an earthy, clean smelled to it! The consistency made it easy to cover my face and neck and it absorbed quickly into my skin while also leaving a thin protective layer that I could feel, so I knew it was working actively on my face and through the night! It wasn't sticky or uncomfortable, it made me feel like the product was actually working and lingered on my skin for the purpose of protecting and correcting it. The next day when I woke up the first use brought me a glowing, radiant complexion that was a clear difference and improvement! It hydrated perfectly for a combination skin person (such as myself) and I dare to say it would maintain perfect hydration to even a dry skin type.

I love Ginger. As a self-proclaimed herbalist, ginger is truly one of the best roots for health. I have never had the privilege of coming across a product that contains this super ingredient until now. The Ginger People Go Ginger Face Serum is produced by a cool story, contains an amazing active ingredient, and is an overall great product.

GO Ginger Face Serum contains many wonderful ingredients formulated to stimulate collagen production to improve skin firmness. Rich in antioxidants, this highly potent formula helps shield the skin from free radicals responsible for aging, tissue damage and destroying the skin's vigor. Organic ginger and organic pumpkin seed oil are invaluable antioxidants that boost cellular activity. Together, they bolster the skin’s production of protein collagen to promote smoother and younger looking skin.

The Ginger People Go Ginger Face Serum 9.2.13 Certified FabulousGinger is an herb. The rhizome (underground stem) is used as a spice and also as a medicine. It can be used fresh, dried and powdered, or as a juice or oil. Ginger has over 400 chemically active ingredients and is a good source of potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper and vitamin B6. It is an antioxidant, which means it inhibits harmful free radicals that cause aging skin and skin damage. Its potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols, promote smoothness and an evened skin tone. Externally, Ginger works magic on the skin increasing radiance and decreasing inflammation.

In addition to ginger, Go Ginger Face Serum contains other amazing organic ingredients. Organic Sea Buckthorn is used by Russian cosmonauts to protect their skin from cosmic radiation. Its restorative, anti-inflammatory and revitalizing characteristics makes it one of the greatest healers found in nature. Organic Cupuaçu seed butter helps reduce epidermal water loss, therefore restoring the skin’s natural moisture. Pea extract slows the natural aging process by stimulating new production of collagen. It not only targets signs of aging but also effectively protects them from further breakdown. Efficacy tests show skin firmness is increased by 35%.

Go Ginger Face Serum is packaged in a beautiful, recycled glass bottle with a lotion pump. I love that Go uses all recycled materials in their packaging. This serum is delightfully creamy, and applies nicely. Ginger Face Serum absorbs nicely, and can be used under a moisturizer as it is not too heavy. I love the wonderful ginger fragrance. My skin felt amazing after using this product, and I have been using it every day since my initial testing. If you like natural organic ingredients, herbs that have wonderful healing and restorative properties, and beautiful packaging made from recycled materials, you should definitely try Go Ginger Face Serum!

Orogold 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum 7.3.13I am a fan of serums. I like the moisturizing benefits without the thickness of a cream. Maybe once my skin matures a little more that will change. But for now, I'm usually good using a serum on its own. Unless it's the winter, then my skin needs all the moisturizing it can get!! I also like Vitamin C in skincare. I have had good results with products that use Vitamin C - my skin usually looks much brighter and illuminated after using products with Vitamin C. So...Vitamin C ingredients in serum form? Awesome! I found just that in OROGOLD's 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum. Not only did it have the Vitamin C & E, but it is flecked with 24K Gold pieces! What??? Yes indeed. This serum has luxury written all over it, combined with great ingredients for ultra smooth skin! 

I have to admit, I was a little skeptical at first. When I applied the serum, it was a little oily (not what I was looking for)...but it absorbed well immediately after and left my skin feeling silky smooth and glowing! OROGOLD suggests gently massaging the serum into skin and allow it to be fully absorbed - I think this definitely helps the slight oily factor. I used this just before I went to bed, and when I woke up there was no oily residue. My foundation went on smoothly in the morning, and my skin looked brighter, hydrated, radiant, and still felt silky smooth! OROGOLD also claims that this serum helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles - now I don't have any wrinkles at my age, but this serum created such a smooth texture on my skin, that I can really see it being beneficial for skin with fine lines and wrinkles. This serum also has a light citrus fragrance, which I found to be soothing when applied just before bed!

Overall this was a great moisturizing, Vitamin C enriched, serum that immediately turned my skin into a smooth, glowing, texture! If you want even more moisturizing benefits, OROGOLD suggest this serum be combined with the OROGOLD 24K Deep Day Moisturizer. 

This is a splurge item at $198.00

Orogold Save CompareIf you're looking for more of a save option, but still with Vitamin C benefits, check out Origins High-Potency Night-A-Mins. I have used this moisturizing cream in the past, and I love it! It does not have the same silky texture as the OROGOLD 24K Vitamin C Booster Facial Serum, but it is a great night cream. With Vitamin C, E & H plus other minerals, this cream allows you to wake up with refreshed and radiant skin.

High in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it's a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, an essential fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.

Sea buckthorn is known as nature's most balanced fruit. This "Holy Fruit of the Himalayas" has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Over 120 specific studies on sea buckthorn have shown that this little berry promotes health. From sea buckthorn's rare abundance of some of the most powerful antioxidants to being the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 - sea buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit. 

05152013 Seabuck Wonders Bottle Box Serum v2 Certified Fabulous

I didn't start researching this amazing ingredient until I was given the Sea Buckthorn Deep Hydrating Serum from Seabuck Wonders. Before I review products I like to do some research on them and the ingredients in them so I can know exactly what I am trying and how it is suppose to work for me. It was amazing to read so much positive and beneficial things about this "holy fruit". I was SO excited to try the serum on my face to repair my skin and improve my skin tone, plus surging it with all of the amazing omegas abd vitamins it contains! 

Sea Buckthorn Deep Hydrating Serum nourishes and supports cell regeneration to minimize fine lines and help maintain a youthful, healthy glow. The packaging is great because with an airless bottle it will dispenses a perfect amount of the serum and it only takes one hand to pump, no try to shake or squeeze product out! The scent was an amazing orange oil that smelled like I just peeled an orange :) The serum was a great consistency and was easy to smooth over my face. It does foam up a bit, but as you keep rubbing it into your skin it will absorb in clear.

Well Hello All and Happy Friday!  I recently attended a beauty conference about the trends in health & beauty and personal care products.  I know this will not come to a surprise to most of you because you're so awesome and are up on the trends, but what most consumers are looking for are natural or naturally derived ingredients.  Even hotter trend is products that have sustainable ingredients.  These are ingredients that harvested without destroying the environment or the whole crop.  The trend isn't so much Organic or Natural, but sustainable.  You may see trends in products using bamboo for exfoliants or hemp oil in moisturizers.

04052013 retinyl treatment dm skincare certified fabulousRecently I found a natural retinyl treatment from dmSkincare.  During the winter and into early Spring, the weather here in California is all over the place.  It's hot one day and cold the next.  My poor skin doesn't have time to adjust to it just freaks out.  Well with this serum, it helps to regulate the texture of my skin.  With ingredients like, green tea extract and cranberry, both known for getting rid of the daily grime of pollution and make-up.  It packs a punch and helps tighten and smooth out my skin leaving behind a beautiful glow.

The great little slim line airless package this serum comes in helps dose out the correct amount I need making it simple for use.

Have a great weekend!

Hi Fabbers and Welcome to Friday!  As you know we've been talking about easy at home hair treatments this week including leave-in conditioners.  When I was in my teens and early 20's I dyed my hair because it was fun and I wanted to see what colors I could actually get away with.  It got to the point where I couldn't shock my parents anymore.  Needless to say, my hair was not happy with me with all the trauma I put it through.  As I've gotten older-and slightly wiser- I've realized that coloring my hair isn't just for fun anymore...it's now a necessity.  Stress and well heredity brings me to my hair angel about every 4-5 weeks.  So, I have to make sure that I'm using the correct hair products that allow me to keep hair on my head and not fall out.

Well, I'm so excited to share one of my favorites in my magic bag.  Liqwd (yes, not a typo, that's how they spell it) www.liqwd.com has an awesome line of hair care products.  I've used their hydrating shampoo and conditioner and can immeditately tell the difference.  My hair it soft and the ends are smooth and managable.  But wait it gets better... once a week I'll do a deep conditioning and use their Liqwdity Intensive Hair Repair and all the damage I put my hair through during the week it was erased.  It's like going to confession for your hair.  But the ultimate hair saver, is their Q-Keratin Longevity Serum.  This leave-in serum is absolutely amazing.  I pretty much blow dry, curl and spray my oh so thin locks everyday.  And if I'm not curling, I'm flattening.  So you can see why the relationship between my hair and I is more of love and hate- HAHA!  But with Liqwd's Q-Keratin serum my hair forgets about the abuse and loves me again.  It's soft and ends are happy again.  Sometimes when I flatten my hair and the ends are not cooperating I'll take a wee bit and gently apply to give them a healthy shine.  These products are a must have for any girls magic bag.

 

Have a great weekend friends and keep sharing the love... I think it's working!

A brilliant genius for dark days

Now that the days are getting shorter and it gets colder all the time it also seems like our complexion gets pale more and more. Pur~bright promises to be a bright idea in beauty – to create luminous, even toned skin without harsh ingredients. The 9 powerful plant extracts in pur~bright are clinically proven to strengthen the skin against future damage, while safely decreasing melanin production for fewer age spots. Wow a lot of promises but so far this sounds like a pure genius! When I heard about this product I thought I had to put it to the test. I live in Maine where it gets pretty cold right now and on top of that I try to finally get in shape a little better and work out a lot. So I am really putting my skin to a test right now.

I use the pure-bright serum every single night after I cleanse my face. My first impression was that it felt very refreshing. I am usually not one to use a lot of different products but after just a couple times of usage I didn’t want to go without it anymore. I have very sensitive skin so my cleanser usually leaves behind a little tense feeling in my face. When I apply the pur~bright it seems very calming. The serum is rich on vitamin C and Avocado oil, both being very healthy to not only my type of sensitive and dry skin.

But that’s not everything yet. After I used the product for about 2 weeks people around me started to complement me by saying that my skin tone had brightened up a lot and my complexion had lightened. I felt honored because the last time I had heard something like that was when I was pregnant and everyone told me I looked glowing.

All in all I have to say that I will definitely add this one more step to my nightly routine. It is very much worth it because pur~bright by pur~lisse is purely a genius.
