***Giveaway*** Age-Defying Night Cream by Nerium International


Unless you've been living under a rock you have probably heard of Nerium, specifically their Age-Defying Night Cream.  Everyone who tries the Age-Defying Night Cream by Nerium International ends up loving it and I'm no exception.
I've had the pleasure of trying the Night Cream a few years back and loved it then too.  The only problem was I couldn't afford to continue to use it.  As most of you know it comes with a pretty hefty price tag, retailing for $120.00 for a one time purchase.  However, you can get it at a $30.00 discount by signing up for their auto delivery which you would probably want to do anyway since it's just that good.  The great thing is that you can easily make one bottle last a couple months and if you look at it in terms of a monthly cost it suddenly becomes more affordable.
So, what's all the hype about this Night Cream?  Well, it basically does everything you would want a anti-aging cream to do.  It combats the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and helps prevent new ones from forming, it smooths out textured skin, lightens hyperpigmentation, helps to firm and tighten skin and it even helps to protect skin from free radical damage which can cause skin to prematurely age.  It also boosts cell renewal which helps keep skin looking young and it even fends off skin-damaging inflammation and can make large pores less noticeable.  Plus, the best part is that you can easily see a difference in your skin virtually overnight and it keeps getting better with continued use.  But, don't take my word for it, here are some results based on independently conducted clinical trials that are really impressive...

93% of participants showed statistically significant improvement in the appearance of wrinkles.
92% of participants showed statistically significant improvement in skin’s radiance.
72% of participants showed statistically significant improvement in discoloration.

What makes this Age-Defying Night Cream by Nerium International so unique, revolutionary and unlike any other Night Cream is not just the formula which contains the proprietary ingredient NAE-8 but also the consistency.  The consistency of the cream is fairly thick and designed to adhere to the skin much like a mask would.  I find that it works best if you apply it to damp skin so I like to use a nice hydrating facial mist first.  You can keep it simple and just splash a little water on your skin too but I recommend a nice, hydrating facial mist like Mario Badescu's Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs & Rosewater.  I'm no expert but I feel like it absorbs into the skin a little better when it's applied to damp skin.  Make sure to apply it to the face, neck and decollete for the best overall results.  Nerium recommends using 4-5 pumps for the face and neck but I find that 2-3 works perfectly fine and is what will make it last an extra month or two!  I would recommend this Night Cream for all skin types and all ages.
I've been using this Age-Defying Night Cream by Nerium International over the last couple of months and have noticed significant improvement in my skin.  I do take really good care of my skin on a regular basis so I didn't see huge improvements it was more like my skin just looks better overall.  It seems to look younger, firmer and more smooth.  However, I really noticed an improvement in my decollete area.  I wish I would have taken a picture #hindsight!  I suffer from Melasma of my face, neck and especially my chest area and within about 1 week I saw remarkable improvement to the pigmented areas.  They were far less noticeable.  I also noticed that the skin in my decollete area was much more smooth and younger looking as well!
This Age-Defying Night Cream by Nerium International has definitely earned a permanent spot in my skincare regime!!

Here are a couple of un-retouched before and after pics of real people with real results and you can find even more here...

Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser, Alpha Hydroxy Toner, Alpha Hydroxy Moisturizer and Replace Face Mask by IQ Natural & Organics


I think using acids as part of your everyday skincare routine is the best thing you can do for your skin.  Even better is to use a natural and organic line of skincare like IQ Natural & Organics.  IQ Natural & Organics has a great line of Alpha Hydroxy skincare that I have been testing out over the last couple of months and my skin is thanking me for it!
First up is their Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser which is a gentle but extremely effective cleanser.  It not only gives skin a nice deep clean but it also helps exfoliate dead skin cells which leaves skin feeling soft and smooth.  I highly recommend using it with a Clarisonic or Foreo for the ultimate cleanse.  This would be a great cleanser for any skin type.


The best way to follow up with the Alpha Hydroxy Cleanser is with their Alpha Hydroxy Toner!  This toner helps to lighten hyperpigmentation, further exfoliate dead skin cells and also helps to smooth skin texture.  I especially love using this toner when I have a breakout.  It helps to heal and clear blemishes without leaving skin feeling dry and dehydrated like other toners can.  I would definitely recommend this toner for all skin types.



The Alpha Hydroxy circle would not be complete without the IQ Natural & Organics Alpha Hydroxy Moisturizer.  Following up the cleanser and toner with this moisturizer ensures younger, softer and smoother skin!  This Alpha Hydroxy Moisturizer is packed with anti-aging ingredients along with Alpha Hydroxy to help keep skin looking fresh and new.  It's a lightweight moisturizer that is easily absorbed and leaves skin feeling hydrated and soft and works great as a primer for makeup.  Of course, I would also recommend this moisturizer for all skin types!


If you have been a follower of my blog for any length of time then you already know how much I love a good face mask and I have tried a ton of them.  However, I have yet to try any other face mask quite like this Replace Face Charcoal Detox Mask.
The Replace Face Mask is very unique in the fact that it helps heal and clear up any blemishes, helps lighten scars from blemishes and other hyperpigmentation and helps balance skin's oil production.  All that while leaving skin feeling really hydrated and soft, maybe even a little plump!  It has a gel-like texture to it that is easy to apply and very gentle on the skin.  I like to apply to my face, neck and decollete and leave on for at least 15 minutes and then rinse.  For best results I would use at least three times a week.  This is another one that I would recommend for all skin types!

These are just a few of the quality products that IQ Natural & Organics has to offer and I am dying to get my hands on a few others!  
Make sure you take a look at their full line up over on iqnatural.com!

Vitamin C Serum by Belitae Organics



If you haven't tried a Vitamin C Serum yet you are seriously missing out.  I mean, what are you waiting for?  I am constantly recommending Vitamin C Serums to my friends and family.  I just think it's one skincare product that you can get the most bang for your buck.  Of course, you want to make sure to pick out a good quality Vitamin C Serum that has quality, natural and Organic ingredients.  This Vitamin C Serum by Belitae Organics is the perfect choice!  Not only does it contain quality, 98% natural and 72% Organic ingredients but it also contains Hyaluronic Acid as well which can help provide skin with additional moisture.  The potent combination of ingredients in this Vitamin C Serum helps to even skin tone, smooth texture, diminish the look of fine lines and it even helps skin look more firm.
I like to apply my Vitamin C Serum in both my morning and evening skincare routines.  Just gently press in a few drops to freshly cleansed and toned skin on face, neck and decollete.  You can follow it up with other serums and I also highly recommend topping it off with a nice moisturizer for best results.
Best part is, this Vitamin C Serum is ideal for all skin types from acne to very dry!  Plus, it's at a great price point for only $13.97 and it would make a great gift idea for the upcoming Holidays!!


You can find this Vitamin C Serum by Belitae Organics on their website belitae.com or over on Amazon.com...
