Our skin goes through a lot in any given day! It protects us from elements, weather, sun, chemicals, pollution and so much more! And yet, it is one of the features of our body that we give the least attention to! Sure we may use Sunscreen to protect from the Sun, and we may use lotion and some cleansers too. But have you really thought about what is in those products? Are those chemicals really healthy for our skin?
I did research at one time about skin care products and their affect on our skin. Did you know why it is so highly advised that when you use a skin care line, you stay within that same brand for all your skin care needs? It is because of the chemicals that are in those skin care products. They have been specially formulated to work together without having any chemical reactions that can harm your skin. But when you mix and match different brands you run the risk of some of their chemicals reacting and causing chemical burns on your skin!
I can personally tell you the difference it makes when you select one brand and stay with that brand for your skin care regime! When I stopped mixing brands to care for my skin and simply used products all in one brand, my skin rashes, break outs and irritation dramatically decreased!
Now can you just imagine how much more your skin could benefit if you didn't use any chemicals at all? What if you could use a skin care line that was completely organic and natural? I'm talking so organic you can eat it! I'm so excited to tell you about a skin care line that I just discovered that is just that, so organic it is edible; not that you'd want to.
Annmarie Gianni is made for complete nourishment, inside and out. It contains uniquely infused oils with highly nutritious herbs and is the cleanest (free of chemicals, additives and alcohols) on the market. Annmarie Gianni skin care has combined not only some of the best natural practices and methodology in skin care, but they have also included the secrets of aromatherapy. That's right, each of the products use natural essential oils to help manage our skin and brighten our souls at the same time!
I had the luxury to try out the aloe-herb facial cleanser and neroli toning mist! Each are great for all sky types and definitely a great starter set when you are looking to go all natural and not sure which skin type would best benefit your skin. They are made with all natural ingredients and engineered to balance your Ph-levels of your skin using organic essential oils.
The aloe-herb facial cleanser has a liquid lotion texture and the most amazing citrus scent! When I pumped the small amount onto my fingers I was immediately put into bliss! Honestly I could just sit and smell this cleanser all day long! The aromatherapy definitely works, as I felt invigorated and a small burst of energy right away!
The cleanser is quite simple to use. You merely massage onto dry or damp skin and neck areas. Although you can use it on dry skin, damp skin will make the lotion stretch farther. I love that it didn't lather hardly at all. And it quickly and thoroughly rinses away leaving my skin feel completely clean! I didn't feel any residue behind.
I did not experience a single skin irritation while using this face wash. My skin always felt so smooth and soft. I didn't experience any itching, redness or break outs.
The Neroli toning mist was a new experience for me. I didn't love the scent right away. I didn't hate it, but it wasn't my favorite. It was definitely new to me. But after using it for a few days it grew on me and I soon grew to love using it frequently! You simply mist your face after washing or anytime throughout the day when you need a pick me up!
It gently moisturizes your skin, balances your natural oils, soothes sensitive skin, improves the appearance of your skin and reduces the size of your pores! I found it to be very beneficial in the middle of the day after working in the garden, chasing kids around or running errands when my face was just feeling bleh, to spritz a little and it freshened my skin and the scent was a great pick me up!
After using the Annmarie skin care for 2 weeks, I was loving what I was experiencing. But since I have combination skin with some oily spots it got me wondering; would the oily skin care line be even better? I went and ordered the Oily line starter set. It shipped quickly and arrived quickly and soon I was enjoying another amazing set of organic skin care! The oily set actually worked even better for my skin! The Facial cleanser was an amazing citrus mint scent which cleansed well and didn't over dry. The Dead sea scrub sluffed way my dry dead skin and left my skin very smooth. The herbal facial oil absorbed quickly into my skin and left it feeling amazingly soft.
Now you may be thinking what I thought, "Put oil on an oily face? Why in the world would you do that?" But if you are using natural ingredients with essential oils it can be quite beneficial! It really didn't make my skin oily at all! In fact it absorbed better than most lotions I have for oily skin! And it didn't leave my skin feeling oily at all. It soothed my skin and made it feel amazing! And I loved the scent!
In fact the Husband even commented on the scent this time! He loved the smell of the Aloe-herb facial cleanser and the oily skin cleanser too. But this oily skin oil is one he mentioned the most. He teases me because he said it makes me smell like an italian restaurant and he just wants to hold me and smell it frequently. Haha! I don't think it smells like food at all, but he does. But I don't mind because that's more attention he gives me. Who needs fancy, expensive and chemical filled perfumes? Just use the Annmarie Gianni Skin care line! It will leave you smelling so great your significant will want to be near you just so they can smell it! Haha!
Overall; I have loved the Annmarie Gianni Skin care line! It truly does make a difference in the texture and softness in your skin and it does it with all natural, organic and green ingredients! What could be better? I know, the scents! Oh my goodness that is one of my favorite features are the amazing scents that each product has. Each one has their own unique scent as they are each made with different essential oils that have been shown to improve different features, skin tone, ph-balance, reduce pore size and more all for your skin!
