Beaming, clear and unicorn-kissed skin is what we as women tend to dream of waking up to each morning. The reality is that environmental factors, sun exposure, our diets, etc can often impede that dream. However, quality, natural and affordable skin care can be hard to come by. Over the years more and more companies have emerged into this market. Plant-based nutritionist and author Kimberly Snyder highly recommends the Antioxidant Skin Boost from Sally B's Skin Yummies for radiant skin. This company is based right here in Atlanta, GA and they create cosmetic and skin care products using all natural, organic and non-toxic ingredients. Being that I love all natural products and supporting local businesses, I had to give it a try!
When I received my order, it came with three samples of a few of their other skin care products and a cute thank you note. I love little touches like that!
Although the bottle is small, the amount needed per use is small and a little goes a long way. The benefits and instructions for use per their website:
Give beauty sleep a new meaning with our Antioxidant Skin Boost. This beneficial Vitamin C powder is packed full of proven anti-aging and restorative ingredients like Vitamin C (L-Asborbic Acid), Hyaluronic Acid, and Resveratrol, which repair the affects of everyday dirt, stress, and harsh environmental elements. Just mix a scoop of Boost with your night cream or serum and let its super antioxidant powers brighten your complexion and fight free radicals to help prevent the signs of aging.
I have been using this product nightly for about 2 months now and I must say I am impressed. I've tried mixing the powder with rosehip seed oil as well as argan oil as each of these oils are light and provide amazing benefits to the skin. I will say that in my experience, when mixing the powder with the oils, while it blended in, it was a little grainy in texture which I did not expect. However, after applying it to a freshly washed face, the mixture absorbed very well and quickly into my skin.
I personally have experienced the following benefits thus far:
I've also received several compliments within the first couple weeks that I was "glowing" and that my skin looked great. I am quite pleased with this product and it has definitely become a staple in my skin care routine. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
