On the list of top scents in the world, I would say that peppermint is one of the top 5. Right up there with fresh apple pie and the smell of a foggy morning in the woods. It’s a smell that wakes you up and soothes your nerves at the same time. Avalon Organics made the perfect choice for their Moisturizing Cream Shave product. A hot shower and a fresh shave puts your mind right where it needs to be to face the day ahead.  Using this product will do just that!

 Peppermint is used in many products from food and personal health, to air fresheners and perfumes. This has to be because of its unique therapeutic properties. The mint oil in this cream taps into these properties to help sooth skin and reduce irritation on the face and neck. When I applied the cream I noticed a cooling sensation on my skin, which I noticed tightened up the pores on my face and helped my razor bite into the stubble on my face. I have to say, I expected this brisk feeling on application of the cream. What I didn’t expect was the EXTREME cooling feeling after every razor stroke. This cooling affect that instantly quelled any possibility of razor burn. I am not sure why the peppermint cream has this chilling action, but it was a wonderful feeling none the less.

 If you have read any of my other reviews of shaving products, you may notice that I prefer shaving “lotions” instead of foaming creams and gels. This is not rooted in performance, because each product reacts differently on the skin. Rather, I like the “lotion” style of shaving creams because the product seem to get the job done with less volume used. I don’t like having a full lumberjack beard of cream on my face to shave my 48 hours of minimal stubble. Avalon Organics excels in its frugality (yes this is a word, look it up if you don’t believe me). Applying a “thin, transparent layer” of this cream does the work of the fluffiest of lather! At this rate of consumption, I expect the 8oz tube to last for a very very long time.

Avalon Organics have struck gold with this product. The value of a quick and hassle free shave combined with the undeniably refreshing nature of peppermint solidifies the need for this to be in the shaving kit of every man out there. Sure I may be a little bias because of my love of peppermint, but I think everyone should at least try this cream for themselves. I have a feeling that once you do…. You will be as hooked as I am.

I've been in need of a good moisturizer for a little while now, so I was excited when Vine Vera products came into the office and there was the Resveratrol Radiance Cream! It has been really humid lately here in Maine, so I wasn't sure how my experience would be trying a new moisturizer. I haven't been wanting to put anything on my skin in this heat, even if my skin is a little dry, and I didn't want the humidity to ruin my experience! I recently tried a sunscreen that felt like a thick greasy layer was sitting on my skin...gross!

Luckily, my experience was far different. The Vine Vera Resveratrol Zinfandel Radiance Cream is a good quality cream. Some key ingredients include Resveratrol (an ingredient found in red wine), Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Green Tea. The cream helps even skin tone, and to reduce the appearance of dark spots and signs of aging. Because of my age, I can't attest to the anti-aging benefits, but as a cream in general it was exactly what I needed. It was not greasy, even in the midst of the summer heat, it absorbed nicely, and my skin felt hydrated, moisturized, and healthy! It has a nice rich texture that I will very much appreciate in the Fall/Winter months! This cream also smells wonderful! The richness in texture and scent, combined with the lovely packaging, make this a very luxurious skincare item!

Stay classy,

Linnea

This week we have had the outstanding pleasure to review a skin care line that I fell in love with. PRIMAVERA offers certified natural skincare and aromatherapy products that hold the purest joys of nature. Rooted in the philosophy that every day is a chance to bring nature closer – to discover balance with the outside world and the world within – PRIMAVERA’s mission is to share the skin and sensory benefits of healing plants. That mission statement is taken from their website, www.primaveralife.com, and they go on to say that they "developed a deep, collective understanding of traditional plant therapy and created fair trade partnerships with a worldwide community of organic farmers. Our products are intended to connect customers with nature every day because we believe that feeling close to nature creates a sense of balance. Just as the Earth regulates seasons, life cycles and ecosystems, nature regulates the rhythms of our own bodies and minds. As our tagline – Pure nature. Perfect balance. – implies, by allowing pure nature to be part of daily life, we are also inviting the opportunity to discover perfect balance.". 

04172013 Primavera intensive renewing cream

A company with that message made me feel completely at home with the brand and this was before I tried the skincare line! I was given the Rose Pomegranate Intensive Renewing Cream from their Revitalizing skincare line and right away the scent caught my attention. It smelled amazing! I was glad this was a product I was going to be keeping on my face and not washing off :) After I cleansed my skin thoroughly that night I applied the renewing cream to my face and loved how easily it smoothed over my skin and then eventually was absorbed leaving my with instant hydration. When I woke up the next day and checked out my complexion I was amazed at how well it looked in just one night! My overall skin was in top shape with more of an even tone and texture leaving it in perfect condition for my makeup application. 

As I continued use of the cream I saw more and more improvements which is always a plus when you invest in a skin care line. Made to help lift and firm, delivering antioxidants to increase elasticity for more youthful skin, this product is something I can not live without!

Greetings Grayce here!

I love night creams especially because I have very dry skin. The sun and environmental exposure as well as climate changes have caused havoc on my skin.

 The Korres brand has a fascinating history it is one of the largest pharmacies in Greece.

Naxos Island is the inspiration for the first ever KORRES product. It is the most fertile Island in the Aegean known as the hiding place for Zeus, the God of Sky and Thunder.

GreeceIn 1996, KORRES was born. The brand’s simple philosophy was rooted in the use of natural and / or certified organic ingredients of the highest quality; skin- and environmentally- friendly products with clinically tested efficacy; products that are affordable for everyday use.
