SODASHI BALANCING
FACE AND NECK
MOISTURIZER
Like all other Sodashi products,
this moisturizer is one hundred
percent chemical free and uses
only the purest natural ingredients
to deliver the best results. The
lime and rosemary in it help to
balance oiliness while rosehip
oil assists with the repair of
scarring and promotes a healthy,
vibrant complexion. After my first
application of the product, my
skin felt refreshed, smooth and
nourished. Just a week later, my
skin is looking better which I feel
comes from the skilled infusion of
the essential oils that has restored
a healthy and radiant glow to my
skin.

LUSH GORGEOUS
This is LUSH’s ultimate face cream.
This
formula contains six plant oils then infused with
fresh pineapple juice, with a mix of fresh
organic lemons and oranges. Then they
add orange blossom honey water, neroli
essential oil, orange flower absolute and
myrrh. It’s no wonder the cream smells good
enough to eat. From the first time I applied
this, it absorbed easily and doesn’t leave behind
a greasy, oily feel. The lack of preservatives in the
ingredients seem to agree very well with my skin
and keeps dullness at bay and the lemon juice,
among other fruits, is keeping my skin lively and
bright.

CLARINS
HYDRAQUENCH
CREAM-MASK
In just 10 minutes, this rich, creamy,
non-drying mask bathes even the most
dehydrated skin in intense moisture. This
mask is great to hydrate the skin and has
key ingredients that include hyaluronic
acid, glycerine, and katafray bark extracts—
all moisturizers--as well as pyrus sorbus
bud extract which is an antioxidant. I really
liked this mask as a pick-me-up before
an evening out; it left my skin intensely
hydrated. Plus, you just need to wipe (not
rinse) off this rich cream, so it’s less time-
consuming than many other facial masks.
I noticed the results to last about a week
before another treatment was needed.

DERMALOGICA AGE SMART
DYNAMIC SKIN RECOVERY
SPF 30
I experienced super results with this
moisturizer; it’s an extremely light, yet
powerful. This is a medium-weight, daily
moisturiser for mature and prematurely-
aging skin which encourages firmness,
elasticity and hydration by providing
absolute hydration on the skin, while
defending against the primary causes
of skin aging. Containing no artificial
fragrance or colour, AGE Smart Dynamic
Skin Recovery SPF 30 also provides critical
protection from daylight exposure, yet
blends smoothly into skin to create a
perfected finish.

SUKI FACIAL LIFT
ULTIMATE FIRMING CREAM
This cream’s organic formula protects the skin from
environmental damage with potent antioxidants
including olive leaf and green tea while reducing
irritation. I’ve used the cream morning and evening on
clean skin even under the eyes and after less than two
weeks my jaw line was noticeably firmer and my skin
tone slightly more even. This cream also makes my skin
feel smooth and supple and “melts” into the skin very
quickly after application.

ENVIRON® C-QUENCE CRÈME
What I love most about this power packed lutein-rich Environ
Ionzyme C-Quence Creme is how it works as a multi-purpose
moisturizer and serum in one. The Crème is rich in highly
effective antioxidants including vitamin C, vitamin E and
Rosemary extract to assist in protecting the skin against UV
radiation. The formula contains Lutein, an antioxidant that
filters out the harmful high energy blue light that is present
in our everyday environment and also significantly reduces
free radical activity. It also hydrates the skin; leaving it with
a velvety texture and making my skin appear brighter and
plumper. Just three days later, my skin looks visibly luminous,
my pores look smaller and the faint lines are easing not to
mention the mild pigmentation I have is fading.
