I am always on the lookout for unique products to try, but at the end of the day I just want to be able to relax and feel good about myself. I`m sure many of you can relate. As much as I wish I could magically changeÂ blemishesÂ weight issues, scars, pimples, etc. over night, the reality is it won`t happen that way. There are ways, however, we can fix these issues: working out, creams, skin care products, etc. Even at 25 I still hate the whole daily cleaning my face thing. Sure I bathe and all, but I mean standing at the sink specifically to clean my face. I know the benefits of it, but I just don`t like doing it - never have. Well I still don`t enjoy the process, but Annmarie Gianni Skin Care Products make the process a bit more unique to keep my attention to try their products for more than a day. Amazing huh? Oh yea, one of you will get to win a Travel Kit! Annmarie Gianni is an internationally known author, health advocate, personality and founder of Annmarie Gianni Skin Care.Â Just a few years ago, Annmarie started to take a hard look at the products she was putting on her skin. In just a few short days of research, what she found shocked her.Â Skin care products were severely under-regulated and most contained ingredients that werenâ€™t safe at almost any amount. Even products that claimed they were organic or natural had hidden preservatives and other nasty additives.Â She was frustrated and motivated to find a better option, because she realized so many people were using these supposedly â€œnaturalâ€ products.Â What she found was not encouraging. Many of the truly natural products werenâ€™t up to her standards of quality or effectiveness.Â It wasnâ€™t long until she realized that if she wanted to have a truly clean and natural skin care line, she would have to do it herself.Â So she did and Annmarie Gianni Skin Care was founded to provide a clean, natural skin care experience using natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients. Annmarie now spends her time educating audiences around the United States about how to preserve your beauty and longevity from the inside out as well as what to look for when youâ€™re searching for a skin care line that will keep your skin glowing and vibrant. She can be seen as a regular co-host on the popular online health show â€œThe Renegade Health Showâ€ atÂ www.RenegadeHealth.com.Â Annmarie has also trained as a massage therapist, athletic trainer and has run a successful personal training business in Fairfield County, Connecticut.Â Currently Annmarie and her husband and author Kevin are living in an RV and traveling the United States spreading the word of good health and good skin care. When sheâ€™s not being a business woman, training others, or hosting her weekly internet show, Annmarie enjoys traveling, being outside and preparing healthy meals. She loves to hike and run in the woods, and spend time with her cat Jonny 5.
What do I think?
I was sent the Travel Kit for Normal Skin. This set is great for all skin types, and will help keep you skin in perfect balance. The Aloe-Herb Facial Cleanser, Ayurvedic Facial Scrub, Neroli Toning Mist, and Herbal Facial Oil for Normal and Combination Skin all work together to leave your skin fresh, moisturized, and glowing.Â I wasÂ skepticalÂ of the products at first. I don`t like to just throw products on my face as I already have enough pimples that come out on their own without any other additive. So I started off trying out the Neroli Toning Mist. TheÂ Neroli Toning Mist is a soothing, refreshing mist that helps bring your skin back to perfect balance. Neroli hydrosol, from orange blossoms, is great for your skin, and also will calm the subtle energies of your soul. Each use brings you closer to complete harmony inside and out. This Neroli Toning Mist is great for all skin types. Gluten-free and vegan! I fell in love with the mist instantly because of how wonderful and relaxing the scent is. I`m not sure what it is, but it`s subtle, but not too subtle, and yet just the right tone to make you feel relaxed. Before reading what it was for I just sprayed it on as a body spray because I enjoyed the scent so much. Then I figured I would read what it was about and actually discovered it`s best to spray in on your face and neck (with your eyes closed of course) to make your skin feel softer. Surprisingly, it works! Of course I still can`t get over the scent and I`m crossing my fingers this is a never ending bottle because I have been using it like crazy since it came in just to enjoy the smell - not for its` actual intended purposes. Sad huh? Next up it was time to try the facial cleanser. TheÂ Aloe-Herb Cleanser is a gentle and cleansing blend of healing herbs and plants. This blend is pH balanced to enhance your skin`s natural acid mantle and protect its moisture barrier for clean and silky soft skin. The Aloe-Herb Cleanser is great for all skin types. It is gentle with no harsh detergents and always leaves your skin clean, nourished, and soft! Gluten-free and vegan! For me it felt as if I were applying a lotion on my face. It has a very, very light citrus scent to it. While that was setting on my face I also applied the facial scrub to it to help the skin cleaning process a bit. I`m not an expert and not sure if that was okay to do, but hey, it worked for me! TheÂ Ayurvedic Scrub is an exotic blend of Indian herbs, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay and traditional herbal treatments. This blend is synergisticly combined to nourish and re-mineralize your skin. This is a soft yet gentle exfoliant that will rid you of dead skin cells to give your face a bright, soothing glow. Gluten-free! It looks like a mineral eye shadow almost and feels the same way when applying it to your face. Mixed with the lotion I will admit I looked like a swamp monster and my fingers looked like they were digging somewhere they didn`t belong. Of course, this isn`t how you look wearing the product. After I finished scrubbing my face to my satisfaction with the combined products I took a wash rag with water and rinsed off my face. Even though I started off looking like a swamp monster, my skin came out feeling refreshed and on top. It was easy to remove and noÂ residueÂ was left behind. Â Now here`s the actual instructions (which I read AFTER doing it my way):
For Best Results:
Apply 3 to 4 times a week while cleansing. Mix a teaspoon of scrub with 2-3 pumps of my Aloe-Herb Cleanser and some water in the palm of your hand. Then gently massage on your face and neck. Wash clean with a wet, warm towel. You may also us this scrub with just purified water to exfoliate. Mix a teaspoon of scrub with water until a wet paste is made, then massage onto your face and neck. Rinse clean with a wet, warm towel. After using the scrub, you can apply one of my moisturizing facial oils to glow for hours on end. I would say I didn`t do too bad for not reading. By the way, I always encourage you to read instructions before you try products! All in all, I like the products. If it isn`t obvious my favorite is the Neroli Toning Mist which I found does soften the skin as well as put off a refreshing and relaxing scent. Would I recommend Annmarie Gianni Skin Products? Definitely! Within a day or so of using the products I felt a difference in my skin for the better and couldn`t be more pleased. *It should be noted I have normal to oily type skin - it depends on what day you ask, but mostly normal skin which is what helped define my thoughts on the products. Keep your skin type in mind when placing orders.
