Palmetto Derma Intensive Hydration & Firming Serum  This is a full size serum and I have read some good reviews on Palmetto Derma Serum.  For some reason, this bottle is not full to the top ~ I do not know if that is normal or not, but I have taken a photo of it below so you can see that it is not quite full.  It is supposed to hydrate, moisturize, firm, brighten and even out skin tone.  It does not contain parabens, alcohol or sulfates and is its ingredients are 98% naturally derived/72% Organic.   This product does contain sodium benzoate which when combined with Vitamin C ingredients, is a very controversial mix.  This does seem to be a common ingredient for some reason ~ however, if this does bother you and you do not wish to use it, there are other serums out there that contain Vitamin C that do not have this preservative in it.  Full Size 1 oz  Value $38.00

  • Hyaluronic Acid ~ attracts, locks in moisture and creates cell “plumpness”
  • Vitamin C ~ a powerful antioxidant that slows down the damage from free-radicals, which are unstable molecules that cause damage to your collagen and in turn, cause fine lines, wrinkles and dryness
  • Organic Jojoba Oil ~ a natural emollient that has a similar structure to your own sebum allows this oil to absorb easily into your skin
  • Vitamin E ~ The antioxidants of all antioxidants ~ prevents free radical formation, protects the upper skin layer from initial harmful UV radiation and prevents the deterioration of fats in your cell membranes.

Product Description: So, the little ditty on this spectacular serum is simple: its a total moisture surge! The main ingredient, hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective moisturizing agents, as it works it’s magic, it draws moisture from the environment and sends it to the surface of your skin. With the addition of it’s side kick ingredient aloe vera, this tag-team moisturizes & calms skin, causing a fresher & brighter complexion! To add to the mix, we also have green tea.  We like to call this a triple A+, as it is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory resulting as an awesome anti-aging ingredient. This one bottle will firm, hydrate & revive! Bonus: This serum is non-comedogenic.  Includes: Plant-based Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea, Aloe and many other marvelous ingredients!

Angel Face Botanicals Kissed Gentle Foaming Facial Cleanser  This is a pretty expensive facial cleanser, but it is so wonderfully silky and soothing.   This cleanser is a beautiful golden color that has the texture and consistency of aloe vera gel, smells like lavender (ooooooohhhhhhhhh…just wonderful) and foams up nicely.  I love the dispenser on this cleanser ~ it looks like a wood glue dispenser and you gently squeeze the bottle and the golden liquid comes out, thick, one drop at a time ~ you do not need a lot of this cleanser.  Angle Face Botanicals Kissed Gentle cleanser has chamomile, calendula and lavender essential oils as well as aloe vera and B5.  It is 100% organic, vegan and free from sodium laurel sulfate, sodium laureth sulphate, detergents, parabens, nuts, artificial colors and scents.  This cleanser is good for all skin types except dry skin. I also LOVE their website and will be eager to try some of their other products that they sell there.  Deluxe Sample 2.3 or 2.5 oz Value $11.00
