toscrewknatur

I’m not usually one to go out of my way to pamper myself but lately I’ve taken notice I feel so much better when I do. Depending on the method, it really doesn’t take much time or effort to refresh ones inner or outer-self. I firmly believe that in feeling renewed daily, ┬ámakes for a more cheerful soul and a happy heart in return! One of my personal favorite ways to nourish myself is through my health and beauty care routine.

As part of the Schoolhouse Crew Review team, I’ve been given the opportunity to share my thoughts upon a few of the heath and beauty care products by Koru Naturals! I received Emu Oil & Manuka Oil & Honey Shampoo and Conditioner to review. We’ve been enduring an early Spring in Oregon and with that comes several skin irritations from eczema that needs controlled to uncomfortable contact rashes. Each of these products couldn’t have come at a better time for my family to use in aiding our skin care needs be it for health, happiness, or both! Continue reading

Clarigenics Vitamin C Serum {Review}

vitamincserumClarigenics Vitamin C Serum can add a youthful look and radiant glow to ones appearance without the use of any harmful chemicals. I’m very picky about what I apply to my skin so anything with parabens, phthlates, or any other toxins is a big no-no. This made in the USA product is complied of 98% natural and 72% organic ingredients and is never tested on animals.

The ingredients in this serum I recognize and already use many alone such as witch hazel, aloe, and jojoba oil to name just a few. It’s an excellent combination that when mixed together gives users healthier more youthful appearance by helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It’s also an ideal choice for those with different skin types whether oily, sensitive, acne prone, and so on.

I like that a little bit of this goes a long way. The bottle has glass dropper which makes application easy. I can’t quite place the smell but it’s not off putting. The consistency is somewhere in the middle of liquid and gel. It has a somewhat silky feel and absorbs soon after application. I like to apply this before wearing make up and follow with my favorite moisturizer.

After a few weeks of use, I’ve noticed my skin to be more radiant and the darkness under my eyes fade away quite a bit! Aside from tackling my dark eye circles and under the eye puffiness, this can be used on the face, neck, body, and hands. I’ve took note of my breaking out with acne far less since use and love that my skin seems to have a really healthy glow to it.

I haven’t quite utilized all the benefits of this product but am very impressed with what it helps with. The versatility ranges from tackling age spots, dry patchy skin, enlarged pores, sun damage, and much more! I love that it uses Vitamins C & E which are great for the skin.

This company stand behind their product and offers a worry free full 365 day money back 17arantee no questions asked! I’m certainly satisfied with how well the product works and the affordable price.

Organic Rosehip Oil by Valentia Skin Care Review

rosehipoil2I’m always fan of beauty products that have more than one wonderful benefit to the body. The Organic Rosehip Oil by Valentia Skin Care is a beauty oil that does just that and I’m finding myself turning to it for many of my skin, hair, and nail care needs. It can be used alone or mixed with other lotions and skincare products too making it an even more versatile and prized choice.

I’m going to admit I was taken aback when smelling this oil for the first time. I was expecting a sweet rose petal smell but instead received a more earthy scent. I don’t hate the smell but I’m not entirely a fan of it either. It actually reminds me of what lavender oil smells like before it goes through the entire finishing process. The plus side is that the scent doesn’t linger. I learned I can mix this oil with my favorite essential oils or other moisturizer products and that it’s actually a recommendation.

This oil is an amber yellow color. It is light, non-greasy, and quickly absorbs into the skin. It isn’t messy to mange in the least bit. I’ve personally been using the oil on my nails and have seen amazing results. My nails haven’t looked or felt this healthy in awhile! I also love applying this to my legs after shaving. I’ve had no more discomfort or itching fits! The moisturizing capabilities are excellent, in my opinion.

My four year old son suffers from eczema and though it’s gotten better, he always seems to have flares during the winter season. I’ve been using this oil on trouble spots such as elbows and knees and the results have been very favorable! This bottle has lasted a while since a little bit goes a long way. The included glass dropper top is great in ensuring that you don’t over apply the oil when only really needing 3-4 drops at a time.

The benefits of this oil included reducing fine lines & wrinkles, reducing scars & burns, re-hydrating skin, and strengthening nails & hair. It’s an oil I wouldn’t want to be without since it’s great not just for me but my whole family and their skin care needs too. I certainly recommend it.

100% Pure Argan Oil [Certified Organic] Review

arganoil

 

Argan Oil is something I heard briefly about but my interest in trying it out or learning more about it stopped there mainly because I thought it wouldn’t be good to use on my oily skin. More oil on oily skin equals acne, right? Well, recently in an attempt to prioritize and change things up in my daily skincare routine, I decided to see what all the fuss was about. While researching, I learned that it’s actually great for all skin types.

I’ve happily been using Foxbrim Certified Organic 100% Pure Argan Oil for many of my skin care, hair care, and other beauty needs for the last month. I like that it’s free from Parabens, Phthalates, Sulfates, and fragrances. When choosing an oil, I always make sure it’s pure and not diluted by anything. The fact that it comes in dark bottle ensures that it filters out the suns ultra-violet light is good because it ensures the oil won’t lose it’s potency.

This Argan oil doesn’t dry my skin out yet it doesn’t leave it oily either. It’s high in vitamin E and essential fatty acids. I like that it’s easy to apply with the glass dropper attached to the lid. The dropper is great because this oil can effectively be used quite sparingly. The oil is smooth and light absorbing quickly and not feeling greasy in the least bit. After application, I’m left with richly moisturized skin. I have total peace knowing that my skin won’t clog up and have an undesirable reactions. I’m left with an attractively glowing rejuvenated look.

I’ve been using this oil on my face at night time and also before I apply my make up. It’s been great for my chapped lips which always seem to get way worse during the winter season. Since use I’ve had very little acne but took note this is also known to heal blemishes and minimize scaring. My hands and nails have greatly benefited. I can tell a real difference as I’ve not had painful hangnails or broken nails since the daily use of this oil! My hair and scalp is also benefiting. I see and feel desirable changes, and that’s what keeps me continuing to use and praise this beauty product so much.

I totally adore products that serve many purposes. It can even be used in home-made beauty products such as scrubs! As for a downside, I can’t think of one! The oil has many benefits and the price is excellent! You can’t beat $13.95 for a two ounce bottle on Amazon. If you aren’t happy, there’s a 100% Money Back Guarantee.
