Beauty Beauty on the Shelf

I am just beside myself when I find new beauty products that:  A.  may actually work and B. are completely natural.  Now, I am not sure if the placebo effect is taking over in my mind's attempt see a glow or these products are actually showing promise, but either way, I must share.

Product #1 (which is not even a beauty product at all):  Grape Seed Oil
After meeting a woman at a new year's eve party and listening to her rave about the benefits and improvements she had seen after daily use, I was sold.  Until January 1st, when I had forgotten about the entire conversation.  Luckily, my mother n law hadn't and she brought me some of this oil just last week.  Five days and counting, and I've experienced no breakouts from twice daily use of this oil on my face and neck.  It's simply light and moisturizing.  I rub a little on the cuticles at night too.  I know,  I know, it's for cooking, but if it's good enough to eat, it's gotta be good for the skin.  Don't think olive oil consistency here, it's a much lighter oil.  Think gorgeous skin (thinking, focusing, thinking).


Product #2 (purchased simply because it came with a free lip butter - that's kinda how I roll- oh, and it's 99% natural, not "completely" so i take that comment back).   Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Facial Towelettes.  No wonder they have so many awards.  Yes, these are for their "mature skin" customers so fitting that I am using them.  This little towel cleanses, moisturizes and brightens the skins.  I am already half way through the pack and it was only purchased Sunday.  I say YES to YES to products!



Come back Friday for a fun giveaway!  I'll be doing one a month for the next three months!

I've used grapeseed oil on and off for the pastvfewvyears and it is wonderful! So nice to have a natural alternative.

just started using the cucumber ones! (thought about getting these ones- for my "mature skin", but at the time of ordering, the reviews were mixed... any issues with em in your opinion??)

love the grape seed oil tip... just started using it in replacement of olive oil (for hot dishes).

Bestie said...

torrie- i've used the cucumbers ones in the past but they seem like they are more just for cleansing. the ones for mature skin really to seem to moisturize and brighten!

i did the same with switching olive oil for grapseed oil when cooking with high heat. always we are on same page :)
