Schwartz Bioresearch Phyto Ceramides

Schwartz Bioresearch is a health and wellness, as well as, beauty brand located in the heart of Oregon. When I heard that they were offering a supplement that works to rejuventate, as well as, renew the skin, I jumped at the chance to try the product (thank you Tomoson). Recently, I had the opportunity to try Schwartz Bioresearch's Phyto Ceramides. So, what did I think?


PROS


During the colder climates (or Winter months) I find my skin relatively dry. In fact, I would say my skin is very similar to my hair, as it is Combination. Although my skin is a product of my environment, as it tends to be oily in the hotter climates (or Summer months) I have noticed that these supplements really help with your skin's moisture barrier.

After using this product for a week, I noticed relatively decent results. These results increased into the second, third, as well as, fourth and fifth week. My skin not only felt more smooth, but looked it too.

Not only is this product incredible for your skin, it is great for your hair and your nails. It prevents hair loss and promotes nail strength, making it a product you will not only love, but appreciate too.

Although this product is meant for the skin and benefits hair and nails, it is also relatively decent for joints.

This product does not contain any artificial or synthetic ingredients. It is also free of fillers, binders, additives, and preservatives.


CONS


The main ingredient in this product is Phytoceramides. This product also contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vegetable Cellulose, Magnesium Stearate, Silicon Dioxide, and MCC. If you are allergic to any of these products, you are not going to be interested in this Schwartz Bioresearch addition.

Although the original price is $59.95, you can find Schwartz Bioresearch's Phyto Ceramides at Amazon for $24.95. Would I use this product again? Most definitely. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes, I would. For more information about Schwartz Bioresearch's Phyto Ceramides Skin Rejuvenation, simply click here right now.

InstaNatural Essential Oils


InstaNatural is natural and organic beauty brand located in the heart of Orlando, Florida. I have tried an array of products from InstaNatural and I have to admit, everything I have tried is quite decent. Recently, I had the opportunity to try InstaNatural's Lemon and Peppermint Oils (thank you Brand Backer). So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
The Lemon Oil contains 100% pure cold-pressed citrus limon. The Peppermint Oil contains 100% steam distilled menthe piperita. These products are 100% natural and organic.
 
Naturally the benefits of Lemon Oil are endless. Not only does this amazing essential oil work as a natural purifier, but an astringent too, as it disinfects naturally. Due to stress, I found myself recently enduring quite a few breakouts. Although minimal, it is always unpleasant to experience this. The Lemon Oil from InstaNatural actually helped regenerate my skin and the breakouts went away.
 
Like Lemon Oil, Peppermint Oil has so many incredible benefits. If you have oily skin, you may find Peppermint Oil to be very interesting. If you suffer from hair loss, Peppermint Oil works to stimulate circulation. It is also great for those with a dry scalp. I actually oil pulled with this and enjoyed the experience. I diluted the oil with spring water.
 
For under $20, you get 4 oz. which is a relatively good price for an essential oil. If you are on a budget or simply do not feel like spending a lot on an essential, you are going to love these InstaNatural additions.
 
These essentials oils are free of parabens, sulfates, and GMOs. They are also cruelty-free.
 
CONS
 
Although these oils are natural, if you find yourself allergic to lemons or any kind of citrus in general, you are not going to be find the Lemon Oil appealing. If you are allergic to peppermint, you are not going to be interested in the Peppermint Oil.
 
If you have extremely dry skin, you should avoid using the Peppermint Oil on your face.
 
These products are natural and organic. Although they are not diluted, they are not heavy so if you are looking for a product that is a little heavier that treats various skin issues, you may not find these essential oils of interest.
 
You can find both of these amazing essential oils at InstaNatural for only $19.97. Would I use these oils again? Yes. Would I recommend them to a friend? Yes. For more information about InstaNatural's Lemon Oil and Peppermint Oil, simply click here right now.

Hampton Green Nature Klamath Blue Green Algae

It is very interesting what you find when searching for something that is different. In my quest of supplement searching, I had the chance of discovering Klamath Blue Green Algae. This Algae is pure and is sourced directly from the upper Klamath Lake in Oregon and loaded with antioxidants which work to help an array of issues. Well, recently, I had the opportunity to try Hampton Green Nature's Klamath Blue Green Algae. So, what did I think?


PROS
Not only does this supplement work to increase energy, it works as natural restoration by enhancing brain function. By nourishing the central nervous system, this Cyanobacteria works to improve mental health and memory. If you suffer from anxiety or are under a lot of stress, this supplement will actually help.

Whether you suffer from depression or simply lack a healthy gastrointestinal tract, as photosynthetic organism, Blue Green Algae will benefit you. Why? It works to treat an array of health conditions, but also works to prevent them too. This is all natural.

High in protein, this supplement is also modestly rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin B, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B6, and Folate. Although Calcium, Iron, Zinc, and Potassium are evident in Blue Green Algae, the amounts are relatively small.

This product does not contain sugar, soy, milk, wheat, yeast, fish, or sodium. It does not contain any preservatives or parabens. It is also gluten-free and vegan friendly.


CONS
If you are allergic to Blue Green Algae, it is important to refrain from using this product.

Although this works to treat various problematic health issues, it is not a miracle worker in a sense where if you suffer from an acute health issue, it will treat it.

Like most supplements, the results from this product are not instantaneous.

You can find Hampton Green Nature's Klamath Blue Green Algae at Amazon for $13.99. Would I recommend this product? Yes. Would I use this product again? Yes. For more information about this product, click here right now.

Sari Foods: Spirulina, Acerola, and Nutritional Yeast

Brand Backer is always full of surprises, when it comes to connecting bloggers with businesses. It was really great to be able to discover Sari Foods. Located in the heart of Las Vegas, Sari Foods Company has managed to bring ancient foods to modern life, empowering the conscious consumer. Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Spirulina, Acerola, and Nutritional Yeast. So, what did I think?


PROS
When it comes to nutritional value, these Sari Food additions have it. And because of this, they are extremely versatile. Whether you want to add them to your favorite dishes or create smoothies and shakes or simply use them on their own, they work incredibly.

Whether you want to boost your immunity or simply looking to lose weight, you are going to enjoy these products immensely. They are great for virtually every diet too.

Spirulina contains about 50-70% of protein and includes all of the essential amino acids. It has an array of benefits and is known to improve your entire digestive system. Spirulina is also known to help with arthritis and heart disease. It is also known to help prevent hair loss, as well.

The Acerola (Vitamin C powder) is great for an array of individual health issues. Whether you are looking to boost your immunity or treat any flu-like symptoms, this is perfect for that. With over 1,670 times more mg of Vitamin C than an orange, a little goes a long way. A Brazilian doctor recently engaged in a comparative analysis about antioxidant potency and Acerola was the highest scoring domestic fruit. It is also good for preventing cancer, cardiovascular and chronic diseases. Whether you want to treat Allergic Rhinitis or simply a common cold, Acerola will definitely do that.

As a huge source of potassium, as well as, complete protein, Nutritional Yeast is the perfect health addition to those who do not eat meat, dairy, or eggs. It is also gluten-free and sugar-free, as well. Do not mistake Nutritional Yeast with Yeast Extract, as the two are very different. This taste is very "cheesy" and light and resembles a beige to yellow color, whereas; the extract is very bold and strong and looks brown (i.g. Vegemite).A little bit of product goes a long way, which I really enjoy. You don't have to use a lot of these products to enjoy them.

If you are vegan, you will enjoy these additions for their versatility and their overall nutritional value and contribution to some of your favorite dishes. When it comes to Spirulina, the protein content is as big, if not bigger than using milk and/or meat as your source.

A little bit of product goes a long way, which I really enjoy. You don't have to use a lot of these products to enjoy them.

These products are not only free of synthetic ingredients, they are free of genetically modified organisms (or GMOs) too.


CONS
The Spirulina powder contains an array of ingredients such as Protein, Calcium, Gamma-Liolenic Acid (or GLA), Omega 3, Omega 6, Omega 9, Iron, Beta-Carotene, Chlorophyll, Folate, and more. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, you are obviously not going to be interested in the Spirulina powder.

The Vitamin C (Acerola) powder contains quite a few ingredients. Some of them include: Vitamin E, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium, Iron, Phosphorus, Aceronidin, and more. If you are allergic, you may want to refrain from using this product.

The Nutritional Yeast powder includes several ingredients. These ingredients include: Iron, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Niacin, Biotin, Zinc, Phosphorus, Molybdenium, Selenium, and more. If you are allergic or find yourself garnering a reaction to any of these ingredients, you are not going to want to use this product.

If you are going through antihrombics, fibrinolytics, or thrombolytics or any treatment that is anticoagulant related, it is key to consult your doctor before using Spirulina.

You can find Sari Foods Nutritional Yeast for $12.95, Spirulina for $23.95, and Vitamin C Powder (Acerola) for $29.95 at Amazon. Would I use these products again? Yes. Would I recommend them to a friend? Yes. For more information about the Sari Foods - Spirulina, Acerola, and Nutritional Yeast, simply click here right now.

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum

Amara Organics is a natural beauty brand located in the heart of Beaverton, Oregon. Thanks to Brand Backer, I had the chance to discover a new product by this brand, the Vitamin C Serum. Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Vitamin C Serum from Amara Organics. So, what did I think?

PROS
First and foremost, I love the texture of this serum. It's an oil-base, but still provides your skin with an astringent that works as a detoxifying medium, which it balanced.
Not only does this product work as an amazing Vitamin C serum, it works as a regenerating serum too which neutralizes free radicals and prevents, corrects, and prevents various DNA damage.
After using this product for a week, I noticed that my skin looked brighter and more luminous. The texture of my skin also improved modestly, as a result. I tend to have dry skin in colder climates and oily skin in the hotter climates.
This product did not oxidize on my skin, which is a huge plus. A lot of Vitamin C serums tend to oxidize and surprisingly, this one wasn't one of them.
Not only is this product natural, as it is free of parabens and alcohol, it is also vegan. And because of this, it is also cruelty-free. So, no animals were harmed when this product was created.

CONS
Some of the ingredients in this serum include: Vitamin C, MSM, Hyaluronic Acid, Witch Hazel, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Geranium Extract, Dandelion Extract, Horsetail Plant Extract, and more. If you find yourself allergic to any of these ingredients or suffer from any reactions to them, they I would highly advise you to refrain from using this serum.
Although this serum works amazingly to produce and stimulate collagen production, I am unsure if it works to correct fine lines and wrinkles.
The Vitamin C by Amara Organics is available at Amara Organics for $19.95. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum, simply click here right now.

Zenwise Labs: Advanced Green Tea Extract


Are the best things in life really free or are they natural? One of my favorite brands that I have discovered within these past few months is a small brand called Zenwise Labs. Recently, I had the opportunity (thank you Brand Backer) to try Zenwise Labs Advanced Green Tea Extract. So, what did I think?


PROS


Whether you are looking to lower your cholesterol or simply looking to lose weight, you can definitely do that with the aid of this product. When combined with Vitamin C and a fusion of other ingredients, you have a decent daily supplement.

This product is caffeine-free, so don't expect a "pump" as this is a natural medium to optimize your workout. This product is not only gluten-free, it is soy, wheat, egg, nut, and fish-free too.

In case you are wondering if this product was tested on animals. This product is cruelty-free, so no animals were harmed when this product was made.


CONS


Some of the ingredients include: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D3, Vitamin E, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Niacin, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Iodine, Ginko Biloba, Kelp, MSM, and more. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, it is very important to refrain from using this product.

This is not 100% green tea or matcha. This is an extract with a fusion of antioxidants. If you are searching for the pure stuff, you are not going to find this product appealing.

The Advanced Green Tea Extract is available on Amazon for $22.95. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about Zenwise Labs, Advanced Green Tea Extract simply click here right now.

Eu Natural Vibrance Pure Healthy Hair Formula


When Brand Backer introduced a product that worked to promote hair growth, as well as, strength I found myself interested. I mean, there is no one on earth that does not want healthy hair because we all do. A company called Eu Natural created a product called Vibrance Pure Healthy Hair Formula which works to stimulate hair growth from the outside, in. Recently, I had the chance to try the Pure Healthy Hair Formula from Vibrance. So, what did I think?


PROS
This product contains OptiMSM, which is basically what your hair needs to grow. Almost like what protein is for our body. This stimulates hair growth, promotes strength, and as a result, helps your hair grow at a rapid pace rather than a slower one.

When it comes to ingredients, the Biotin in this product works to naturally strengthen the hair without making it brittle or dry. It also works to prevent split ends.

After using this product for a week, I noticed some visible results. Week 2 into 3, the results became dramatic. Then, into week 4 and 5, the results increased. Although the results are not instantaneous, they are evident after a few weeks.

Using natural ingredients, this product is not only free of parabens and synthetic ingredients, it is cruelty-free too.


CONS
This product contains an array of ingredients. These ingredients include: Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B9, Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin H, Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Grape Seed Extract, Green Tea Extract, Black Tea Extract, and more. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, I highly suggest refraining from using this product.

NeoStrata Skin Active Intensive Eye Therapy


Recently, Brand Backer has offered quite a few opportunities and one of them is from NeoStrata. Located in the heart of Princeton, NJ this internationally known skin care company has created an empire of other brands such as NeoStrata, Exuviance, CoverBlend, NeoCeuticals and Psorent. Recently, I had the opportunity to try NeoStrata's Skin Active Eye Therapy. So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
First and foremost, I just want to say that I love the texture of this product. It has a great consistency and is extremely lightweight.
 
I love the idea that this product absorbs, as it hydrates virtually instantaneously. One thing that I cannot stand about some (not all) eye creams and serums is that they tend to become dry when applied topically. This one moisturizes, which I love.
 
You can wear it with foundation and concealer, as you can wear it with eyeliner, eye shadow, and mascara. It will not effect your eyes in anyway. In fact, my eyes were not irritated when using this product.
 
Although this works to tighten the skin around the eyes, increasing the elasticity and promoting collagen stimulation, I believe this NeoStrata addition helps moderately with puffiness.
 
CONS
 
Some of the ingredients include: Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polysilicone-11, Acetyl Glucosamine, Glycerin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Nylon-12, Silica, Octyldodecyl Stearate, Tocopheryl (Vitamin E) Acetate, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Sodium Hyaluronate, Caffeine, Malus Domestica Fruit Cell Culture Extract, Butylene Glycol, Lecithin, and more. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients or find yourself garnering some sort of reaction to them, it is crucial to refrain from using this product.
 
If you have dark circles and are looking for the best medium to treat them, you may not find this product appealing.
 
If you are into natural and organic skin care, you are not going to find this one interesting.
 
You can purchase NeoStrata's Skin Active Eye Therapy at NeoStrata for $79. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes. For more information about this product, simply click here right now.

Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream


If you haven't had the opportunity to join Brand Backer, I highly recommend doing so. It is a great website that gives you the chance to try an array of products. Recently, they offered the amazing opportunity to try Anavita's Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream. So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
I love the texture of this moisturizing face cream. It's modestly heavy, but not greasy nor comedogenic and great for those with dry-to-dry/combination skin.
 
This product isn't a serum, so it doesn't absorb into the skin as quick, but does absorb relatively fast for a face cream which I enjoy.
 
Does the Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream from Anavita stimulate collagen production? Absolutely, but because it is a multi-use moisturizer, the stimulation is moderate.
 
You can apply this moisturizer all over your face. Not only does this product work as a day cream, it works as a night cream. It also works as a makeup base/primer. It's also great to apply on any dry area of your body.
 
Although this product is not 100% natural, it is paraben-free.
 
This product is cruelty-free, so no animals were harmed when this product was created. If you are someone who embraces the cruelty-free concept, you will not only love this Anavita addition, but appreciate it much more so.
 
CONS
 
This face cream contains an array of ingredients. Some of them include: Dimethicone, Hyaluronic Acid, Potassium Sorbate, and more. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients or suffer any reactions to them, I highly recommend not choosing this face cream.
 
The scent is potent. I don't think it's terrible, but if you are someone who is looking for a moisturizer that is fragrance-free, you may not find this one appealing.
 
You can purchase Anavita's Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream on Amazon for $29.95. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about this product, simply click here today.

Pura d'or Argan Oil Infused Products


Brand Backer recently introduced another opportunity from a brand that I never heard of until recently, Pura d'or. Pura d'or is quite unique, as they offer a selection of the finest natural beauty essentials you will use that work for the face, the body, the hair, and the nails.

It works to not only stimulate skin cells, producing elasticity, but it works as a natural regenerating medium. My skin not only looks amazing, but feels amazing too.
 
When it comes to the Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Conditioner ($24.99) in Lavender Vanilla, I must say that I am a fan. I love absolutely everything about this conditioner. It not only smells amazing, but it makes my hair feel amazing. Just like my skin, my hair is combination and tends to be oily in the Spring and Summer months (warmer/hotter climates) and dry in the Fall and Winter months (colder climates), so this conditioner benefited me immensely. Not only did it enhance the shine of my hair, but managed the frizz, as well.
 
Have you been losing your hair? If so, you may want to invest in Pura d'or's, Premium Organic Argan Oil Based Hair Loss Prevention Shampoo ($24.99) which works to not only works to strengthen hair, but prevent hair loss in general.

CONS
 
These products are fortified with ingredients that may cause a reaction to your skin and/or hair. If you are allergic to them or find yourself extremely sensitive to them, you may want to refrain from using these products.
 
If you are not willing to spend $24.99 for a shampoo and/or conditioner, you may not find these products appealing.



You can purchase products at Pura d'or directly. Would I use Pura d'or again? Yes. Would I recommend Pura d'or to a friend? Yes. For more information about these products, simply click here right now.

InstaNatural Youth Express Eye Gel


InstaNatural is a brand that I have recently become relatively obsessed with. I first discovered this underrated beauty brand on Brand Backer and ever since, have been quite an enthusiast. When Brand Backer offered the opportunity to try InstaNatural's Youth Express Eye Gel, I wasn't hesitant and jumped right on the opportunity. So, what did I think of this product?
 
PROS
 
When it comes to trying a new product, especially one that involves the eye area, I am somewhat reluctant. Why? Because you just never know what kind of reaction you will get. Needless to say, I was ultimately impressed with how this felt on my skin.
 
This product is not only good for getting rid of puffiness, it is great for those who have under-eye circles.
 
Aside from working with the eyes, this product works well with the face too as a natural moisturizer. It is great for virtually every skin type and works great to correct, prevent, and repair skin. It is a great dual-use product.
 
All of the ingredients in this product are natural and safe. This product is free of synthetic chemicals. It is also paraben-free, sulfate-free, and alcohol-free.
 
This product is so effective and yet it is under $20. What is better than a dual-use skin care essential that actually works yet doesn't break the bank?
 
CONS
 
Fortified with plant stem cells, hyaluronic acid, matrixyl 3000, vitamin E, and jojoba oil; if you find yourself allergic to any of these ingredients or find yourself garnering some sort of skin reaction, it is key to avoid using this product.


InstaNatural's Youth Express Eye Gel is available at InstaNatural for $19.97. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about this product, simply click here right now.

Reebok is on a mission and that mission is to provide people from all walks of life with the motivation and the encouragement to see their full potential. Whether it be their physical well being, their mental well being, their social well being, and even their emotional well being.

I decided to not only watch the video, but take the HUMAN SCORE test, courtesy of Reebok. According to the Test, I am a "FIT SPIRIT" with a score of 86. What is the Fit Spirit? The Fit Spirit is simply a human being that is in touch with their feelings and always strives to achieve inner peace, as well as, balance. Fit Spirits embrace spirituality and yearn for adventure.

Fit Spirits see their health as a gift and embrace wholesome things such as positive energy, healthy food, and nourishment. Although the Fit Spirit accepts their body will eventually decline, they do have a healthy aura and they believe their spirit will last forever, so they make sure they live a worthy life. A Fit Spirit would rather embrace good energy and use it to coach and help others.

Now it is your turn. It only takes 5 minutes. Simply click here to take the test and find your human score.

Hyperbiotics PRO Dental


Lately I have been a huge fan of Hyperbiotics. I have used several products of from the brand which I discovered from Brand Backer. And as a result, I have to admit, I am quite the enthusiast. Why? Because their products really do work and I mean that literally. Recently, I had the opportunity to try their newest product, PRO Dental. So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
This product is something so unique to me because I haven't found anything quite like it yet. The idea of a probiotic product executed into an oral health chewable is fascinating.
 
My oral health has been relatively good and I owe that to Supersmile, but I have to say, after using this amazing Hyperbiotics addition, I noticed that my oral health has improved tremendously.
 
This truly does protect you from eyes, nose, and throat infections. After using this product, I noticed that after being around several sick people at work, I didn't get sick from them.
 
I noticed that PRO Dental not worked for oral health, but it worked to actually whiten my teeth naturally. I wouldn't say a huge amount, but definitely evident.
 
Fortified with natural mint extract and stevia, the taste is fantastic. Not overly sweet, but effective enough to taste the natural flavors in the product.
 
This product is not only 100% vegetarian, it is both sugar and lactose free.
 
CONS
 
If you are allergic to mint, you are not going to be interested in PRO Dental.
 
You can find Hyperbiotics PRO Dental on Amazon for $23.95. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. In fact, I just took one. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about Hyperbiotics PRO Dental, simply click here right now.

Intensive Youth Eye Gel from Radha Beauty


Recently, I had the opportunity of discovering a little gem through Brand Backer called Radha Beauty, who I recently interviewed for Examiner. All of the products are 100% natural. Recently, I had the chance to try the Intensive Youth Eye Gel. So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
Whether you suffer from a little bit of puffiness or simply have dark circles or need a little bit of lift, you can benefit from using the Intensive Youth Eye Gel.
 
Containing an unique peptide blend, this product works increase cell turnover and promote elasticity and youth.
 
This is outstanding for all skin types. Whether you have dry skin or oily skin, you will benefit from using this product.
 
Not only is the Intensive Youth Gel free of parabens, it does not contain any sulfates, alcohol, or any kind of lab created ingredients. And because this product is natural (98% to be exact) and is like a vast majority of natural products in a sense, it embraces the cruelty-free concept and not tested on animals.
 
CONS
 
This product contains the following ingredients: Matrixyl 3000, Peptide Complex, Natural Plant Stem Cells, Cucumber Hydrosol, Jojoba Oil, Vegan Hyaluronic Acid, Amino Acid Blend, Wildcrafted Periwinkle, Organic Licorice, Wild Crafted Eye Bright, Wild Crafted Reishi, Organic Gotu Kola, and Vitamin E. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients or simply find yourself garnering a reaction to them, you may not be interested in this product.
 
If you suffer from extremely dry skin, you may not find the Intensive Youth Eye Gel appealing, unless you combine it with Radha Beauty's Rosehip Oil.

You can purchase the Intensive Youth Eye Gel from Radha Beauty on Amazon for $16.89. As an original value of $59.95, you are saving over 70%. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. Would I recommend it to a friend? Yes. For more information about this product, simply click here right now.

InstaNatural Dead Sea Mud Mask


Brand Backer has been filled with an array of opportunity and lately I have been taking advantage of them, especially the amazing beauty essentials from InstaNatural. Recently, I had the chance to try the Dead Sea Mud Mask. So, what did I think?
 
PROS
 
This is a multi-use skin care essential that works as a face cleanser, a pore reducer, and a natural moisturizer. It is great for every skin type. Whether you have dry skin, oily skin, acne-prone skin, etc. The Dead Sea Mud Mask really works for every type of problematic skin issue.
 
One thing that I noticed after using this mask was that my skin improved after just one use. It is the Winter, so my skin is a little dry. Plus, due to stress, I have endured a little bit of minor breakouts. After using the Dead Sea Mud Mask I noticed that the quality of my skin improved. It's not dry and my breakouts have went away.
 
I have been to spas and I feel like this mask delivers a treatment that is very similar to those. Very impressive for a facial mask to do this, in my opinion. My skin felt very clarified after using this product once. Almost as if I could feel my skin tightening.
 
This is 100% natural and does not contain any kind of synthetic chemicals or lab created ingredients. With ingredients such as shea butter, jojoba oil, calendula oil, and more; this is truly something to appreciate on your skin.

This product is huge and is 16 oz. For the value ($25.77), I would say that is outstanding, as it is totally worth it.
 
CONS
 
The ingredients in this product are natural, however, this does not mean that everyone's skin will react the same way. Some of the ingredients include: shea butter, jojoba oil, calendula oil, hickory bark extract, aloe vera, and more. If you find yourself allergic or simply suffer a reaction to some of the ingredients, this product may not be for you.
 
Although this product is great for a face cleanser, a pore reducer, and a natural moisturizer, it is a mask. It is not a radical solution to the problem. If you suffer from extremely dry or extremely oily skin, I believe you can benefit from this product, but it isn't going to help tremendously for you. 

 
You can purchase InstaNatural's Dead Sea Mud Mask at InstaNatural for $25.77. Would I recommend this face mask to a friend? Yes. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. In fact, I just used it 20 minutes ago. For more information about this amazing InstaNatural addition, simply click here right now.

Even Glow Serum from Valentia


Some of the best sampling opportunities I have discovered yet come from Brand Backer and one of the most recent opportunities is from Valentia Skincare. Recently, I had the opportunity to try Valentia's Even Glow Serum. What did I think?
 
PROS
 
First and foremost, I just love the texture of this serum. It's light yet concentrated. I love how it makes my skin feel. For a natural-based serum, it isn't incredibly oily or watery.
 
Fortified with vitamin C, rosehip oil, seabuckthorn oil, pink grapefruit oil, green tea extract, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid, this product is great for every skin type. After using this product, I noticed that my skin felt softer and more hydrated. My skin tends to be oily in hotter climates and dry in colder climates, so for this time of year, this serum really delivered a hydration that was relatively long-lasting.

Vitamin C, one thing our bodies do not produce naturally. What I love about this vitamin C serum (Even Glow) from Valentia is the fact that it brightens your skin naturally without breaking it out.
 
Going back to the texture and the hydration that is virtually instantaneous, this serum really absorbs quickly into your skin. That is one thing that I truly love about this amazing Valentia addition.
 
This serum is natural and only contains natural ingredients. The stem cells from this product come from plants.
 
CONS
 
This serum includes an array of ingredients that go beyond the natural quo. They include: Phenoxyethanol, Methlsulfonylmethane, and more. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients or simply find yourself garnering a reaction to them, I think you may not find this serum interesting.
 
The bottle is glass. Personally, I love the bottle, but if you are into plastic type bottles, you may not be interested in this product.
