Osmotics offers a full range of anti-aging skincare to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of skin's tone, texture and radiance. It's never to late to start taking care of your skin. Once we hit our 20's the body naturally stops producing collagen on it's own. The decline in collagen over years results in fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. This a great line to check out if your looking to do some damage control.
You can elect a skincare regime based on your skin type and skincare concerns. Osmotics was kind enough to send me over a few items to check out for myself.
Cream Extreme -Intensive Repair is one of their bestsellers. The 1.7 oz tub goes for $75 and this a serious thick cream. It's rich, soothing, and it's great for repairing dry, damaged skin. I think this cream is best for extreme weather. Whether it's too much sun and dry climate damage on your skin, or freezing cold damage, this intense lotion will do the trick. Not greasy or tacky but heavy.
Skin Rescue -Nourishing Oil is a rich, conditioning oil that instantly relieves dry, dehydrated skin on the hands, face & body. The 3oz bottle goes for $58 and it only takes a drop or two to give skin a velvety texture that leaves it soft and smooth looking. It's a luxurious blend of oils including organic coconut oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, evening primrose oil & red raspberry oil. Instant glow from head to toe without feeling greasy and oiled up.
They recently just launched a new line called Blue Copper 5 and it's getting awesome reviews.

I have teamed up with Ulta Beauty and I am excited to give away worth over $180 in beauty goodies to one lucky winner!! Ulta Beauty was kind enough to send me over some Spring items and sent duplicates.
Top rated Marc Jacobs Decadence 100ml (value of $122) offers a sensual fragrance as intoxicating at the woman who wears it. It has sultry top notes of succulent italian plum wrapped in golden saffron and velvety iris flower, then blooms into an extravagant bouquet of Bulgarian roses and creamy jasmine. Decadence then offers an opulent finish of warm, heady woods and sexy liquid amber. It comes in a gorgeous emerald-green bottle and it looks like a mini Chanel purse with a gold chain and black tassel. A beautiful addition to any perfume collection.
Next, is the Smashbox Cover Shot Eye Kit: Neutrals (value of $34) and it has everything you need to nail a trendy neutral look. It features a limited-edition palette that includes 8 high-impact, velvety-soft eyeshadows in universally flattering shadows.

Mon Shampoing did a US launch at the end of last year, and they are now bringing us a full range of customizable luxurious haircare products. They are a unique high-end Parisian haircare line and you can pick a vial of essential and vegetable oils, based on your hair type, and you mix it with either the Shampoo or Conditioner. You not have to add the oil if you prefer not to.
They have 5 vials of oils to elect from depending on what your hair needs at the time:
Oily Hair - mint, rosemary, jojoba
Colored Hair - orange, ylang ylang, limnanthes Alba
Soft/thin/brittle Hair - orange blossom, sage, grape seed
Dry/curly Hair - lavender, geranium, argan
Delicate Hair - lemon, lemon grass, sweet almond
Mon Shampoing was kind enough to send me over some of the line to check out for myself. I tried the Gentle Shampoo ($28 250ml) & Conditioner w Keratin ($29 250ml), the lemon & lemongrass & sweet almond oil ($14 each 5ml), along with the Leave-In Nourishing and Detangling Spray Mask ($48 200ml).
At first smell, I did not think I was going to like the line but that's why I always say to myself, "you can't always judge a book by its cover". I was pleasantly surprised by the brand and my hair liked it. Is does have a unisex smell, it's not too girly, so everyone in the fam can use it. I added my oil into the shampoo and shook it up to mix it together. The detangler worked great to remove my colored wet hair tangles and after I dried my hair it was not heavy or oily. It's enriched with Lily of the Valley and White Wood scent. The scents are not strong and it does not linger heavily in hair.
Products are paraben/silicone free, containing natural scents and fragrances.
Thanks Mon Shampoing!

Èminence Organic Skin Care products offers natural remedies since 1958 using sustainable and green practices. They have an award winning skincare line to cover all types of skin whether you have dry skin, combo skin, or would like to reduce signs of aging or sun damage, they have something for everyone. Plus, they will plant a tree for every retail product sold. They have planted over 10 million trees to date!
I was excited they sent me over a few of their award winners to try out for myself. I was really impressed with the line and would recommend trying them out if you are into organic skin care. This is a high end skin care line that can only be found at Spa's.
First I tried the I tried the Marine Flower Peptide Eye Cream (around $117 for 1.05 fl oz). The eye cream is great. I love non-greasy, light smelling creams and this fits the bill. It has a light green color to it and it sinks in quickly and provides gentle ultra-rich moisture. It uses naturally derived plant peptides and innovative algae extracts to reduce the visible signs of aging. My under eye feels nicely moisturized and smoothed out.
Next, I tried the Marine Flower Peptide Serum (around $110 for 1 fl oz). Serums make me nervous but I was really impressed with this one. Quick absorbing and it's really rejuvenating. It delivers concentrated plant peptides and botanicals to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase firmness - great for aging skin! It's not tacky and I cant feel it on my skin other than the light hydration and I like that.
The line is only sold at Spa locations and there are about 10 different locations in Connecticut and right along the boarder of New York.

Thanks Èminence for sending these over!
