Vitamin C 20% Hyaluronic Acid Serum ~ Review

Disclosure: I received free product in exchange for my unbiased review. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.

Vitamin C 20% Hyaluronic Acid Serum ~  Review #mammproducts

As you may know, Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid are two ingredients that are known to help with reducing the appearance of winkles and even preventing new ones. Mamm Vitamin C 20% Hyaluronic Acid Serum includes these effective ingredients which also help boost the collagen production. This in turn, makes your skin more radiant and youthful looking.

I'm all for keeping my skin looking it's best and this product is a great tool to help me do it. 
This wonderful serum is made with a 72% organic formula which is gentle on your skin. It is a lightweight serum that comes in a brown glass bottle with a dropper to apply. You get it in a box and even get a cute gold drawstring bag for a nice added touch. The full list of ingredients in the Mamm Serum is shown below.

Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf extract, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Methylsulfonylmethane, Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (botanical hyaluronic acid), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), d-Alpha Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Carbomer, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Phenoxyethanol, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin.

The directions are that you can use this serum once or twice a day. If you use a toner on your skin it is recommended to use that first, then apply the serum. I have used it under my makeup and then follow up with a moisturizer. It goes on smoothly and doesn't leave a tacky residue or sticky feeling. I haven't had any problems with it in the few days I've been using it. It helps to keep my skin soft and smooth.

 With summer coming I'll be going out in the sun more often. Using this serum will help to protect my skin from UV sun exposure and also help fade those pesky sun spots.

Amara Organics Retinol Serum ~ Review

Disclosure: I received complimentary product in exchange for my unbiased review. All opinions expressed here are my own and yours may differ.

Amara Organics Retinol Serum ~ Review

Amara Organics Retinol Serum is a great anti-aging serum that is helpful for your skin in so many ways. Retinol repairs your skin on a molecular level and and speeds up skin cell turnover. It's known to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is also good for improving skin pigmentation and is an effective acne treatment by preventing dead skin cells from clogging pores. If that's not all, it fades acne scars and is known to make your skin more elastic.

I've become more concerned about what I put on my skin. Who wants nasty chemical leeching into your pores, right? Well, this retinol serum really delivers. It is made with natural and vegan ingredients, and they use the best plant-based ingredients available. The company states that it's safe for all skin types, even if you have sensitive skin and you can also use it around your delicate eye area. That's probably because there is no harsh chemicals in this serum and doesn't include alcohol or parabens.

Here is a full list of the ingredients from the company:

Deionized Water, Organic Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (Botanical Hyaluronic Acid), Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel), Pentylene Glycol, Phospholipids, Retinol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Phosphate, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Organic Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba Oil), Triticum Vulgare (Wheat Germ Oil), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea), Wildcrafted Resina Propoli (Propolis), Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin, Organic Gotu Kola Extract, Organic Horsetail Plant Extract, Organic Geranium Extract, Organic Dandelion Extract.

The serum comes in a 1 fluid ounce pump dispenser. It's a light gel-like substance which is so easy to use. All you do is pump a squirt or two and  you have enough to cover your face and neck area. It spreads easily and absorbs pretty quickly. If you've never used retinol before it is recommended to use every other night for the first couple of weeks until your skin adjusts to it. Also you should wear sunscreen when using it since it can make you burn.

I haven't had any redness or irritation with it at all and am pleased with the retinol serum so far. It's only been a few days so far but my skin has more of a healthy glow to it already. The Amara Organics Serum is a product that I would continue to use. I'm looking forward to more great results in the future.

If you are interested to learn more you can get this product on Amazon.

Beautyfusion Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream with Peptides, HA, Vit.C,E ~ Review #beautyfusion

Disclosure: I received free product in exchange for my unbiased review. All opinions are my own and yours may differ.

Beautyfusion Anti-Wrinkle Face Cream with Peptides, HA, Vit.C,E ~ Review #beautyfusion

Beautyfusion a great anti-aging cream that includes a powerhouse of effective ingredients that are good for your skin. It has Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamins C &E. Altogether these help to repair and moisturize your skin. It also helps diminish those fine lines and dark spots that you get, especially when you are 50 something like me. It's great for all skin types which is nice also, because I have a combination of oily and dry skin.

I love using Vitamin C on my skin already, so all these other ingredients included in this cream are an added plus. You have everything you need to make your skin more beautiful in one product. This is nice so you don't need to use a variety of different serums or creams.

The cream goes on smoothly, and makes your face feel good. It doesn't leave your skin with a sticky or tacky residue like a few creams that I've used in the past. I like using it as a night cream and have used it for about a week now. My facial skin feels smoother and a little more tight already. It also helps to make my skin more healthy looking and rejuvenated.

Another big plus is that that the Beautyfusion anti-wrinkle cream is made in the USA and  has a 100% money back guarantee.
