Supreme Perfecting Cream by Premiere Dead Sea {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I remember struggling through my adolescent years trying to find the right balance of cleansers and moisturizers that didn’t leave my face dry, red, and flaky.  Surely hormones had something to do with it, but it felt like most cleansers were leaving my face too dry and most moisturizers left my face too greasy.  I’d find a good balance or a great product, and the seasons would change and I’d have to start experimenting again to find something my face would get along with.

new_logo (Small)I can see now that most of my problems had to do with the low quality and store-brand products I was using.  You only get one face, and there are certainly crucial years to baby your skin as much as you can.  If I’d only had a tub of this SUPREME Perfecting Cream from Premiere Dead Sea.

 IMG_9632As you can tell, the packaging is gorgeous.  I imagine that this is the type of stuff celebrities use–only products that look like gold from the outside.  On the inside, this cream is just as wonderful.  It smells like a traditional high-quality cream–as in a pleasant, floral, familiar scent.  Nothing tropical or strong, just pleasant and something you’d associate with a facial cream.

IMG_9633This picture above makes the cream look a little chunky, but this is just the first look after peeling off the lid.  If you swirl it around a little with the stick or your finger, it looks and stays perfectly smooth.  The included mini-spatula is nice for scooping out just the right amount in case you don’t want to get smeared all up your hand when you’re getting to the bottom of the bowl.  2.04 oz might not sound like a lot, but this tub is huge.  I think I’ll be using this for months and months before I start getting worried about running out.

cream

I’ve been using this daily for probably two weeks now and I am really getting addicted to its effects.  It is an extremely powerful mousturizer.  My face has been remarkably dry and flaky lately, and a few swirls of this cream can leave my skin smooth, calmed, and fresh.  It is lightweight and breathable, so I never feel masked or weighed down from it.  I feels perfectly comfortable under makeup and I think its doing a great job of keeping wrinkled, tired skin looking as good as it can.  If you’re looking for a fantastic perfecting cream, this is a great choice.

You can purchase this cream at http://www.premierdeadsea-usa.com/, sold at $199.99 for 2.04 oz.

Awhile back, I reviewed a sea buckthorn cleansing face and body bar from sibu, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of that bar.  The quality of the product, made from the sea buckthorn berry, convinced me that all of Sibu’s products must be equally as glorious, especially if they smell just like that bar did.  Heavenly.  You can read my full review HERE.

Skinnaturals Collection by Skinn Costmetics {Review}

Have you noticed all the skincare reviews I’ve been doing lately?  I’m becoming particularly particular about what I’m putting on my face, how I’m moisturizing, and how I’m taking care of it in general.  You only get one face, ladies!  I’m starting to really be able to distinguish what is effective and what my face reacts to the best.  I’m pleased to tell you about a real winner, Skinnaturals, and what I love about it.

IMG_8518

This collection is a trio of ingenious products, each with remarkable components and qualities, and meant to be used in conjuction with eachother.  This first step is a Skinnatural Calming Cleanser.  This is a natural, sulfate-free, detergent-free cleanser that cleans without drying.  It doesn’t have a strong added scent to it, but I can detect the botanical extracts, like white tea and cucumber.  As you’d expect, it has a nice subtle earthy and plant-like scent, but nothing unnatural.  It can effectively remove my makeup without a lot of suds or even a lot of effort scrubbing and rinsing.  It is formulated to work well on sensitive skin, and I found it very mild and calming.  This is sold for $24.50 for 4 oz.

IMG_8519

Part 2 is the Skinnatural Soothing Serum.  You can read on the bottle how this is a concentrated solution that is “anti-redness & inflammation relief”.  It provides long term soothing and offers relief for redness and irritation.  I don’t know about you, but I’m experiencing a lot of redness and flaking skin lately.  This cold windy weather is getting the best of me.  This serum feels great on my face.  The green color is soothing and I like picturing it nourishing the surface of my skin and deeper.  This contains licorice root extract and white tea extract that helps reduce inflammation.  This serum retails for $36.50 for 1 oz.

IMG_8527

The last step is the Skinnatural Comforting Crème.  This is a powerful and gentle moisturizer with long term benefits.  Vitamin F, wood and plant extract and white tea extract help to offer anti-redness, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging and anti-damage benefits  while supporting healthy epidermal structure.  Now the directions say to squirt out a quarter size amount and apply to face, but I found this to be waaaay to much for me.  I felt pretty smothered and I had to really work it in for quite awhile to get it all absorbed.  I’ve since started using less than a dime-size amount, and this seems to work better for me and my face.  Even in small amounts, this creme is soothing, intense, and I’m loving it more every time I use it.  This retails for $34.50 for 1.7 oz.

 IMG_8530

I’ve only been using these products for a couple of weeks, but I love how calming this system feels on my face!  My poor facial skin has been drinking it up and looking more healthy every day.  This trio really feels like it is doing much more than just getting makeup off.  If feels like my face is getting a nourishing bath, a soothing moisturizer that lasts all night, and that it is looking healthier and happier.  Just writing this up makes me want to go wash my face and use all these products asap.

The set of three products retails for $49.50, but the products are also available for purchase individually at www.skinn.com and via ShopNBC.

Last week, my family and I traveled to Utah for the BYU vs. Georgia Tech game, since my husband is an alum of both schools (but we were totally rooting for BYU!). Utah is a very beautiful place, but there are many reasons I could never live there. The biggest two are 1) the snow (I am a Southern Californian at heart and anything below 60 degrees is freezing) and 2) the dryness. I dry up like a raisin here in California, and it’s five times worse in the northern climate, and I hate having dry skin! I was so grateful to have the Beautiful Skin Care set with me on my trip!

Beautiful Skin Care is made by Trusted Health Products, a company that makes a variety of health products from all-natural ingredients. A while back I reviewed OraMD, an all natural breath freshener, toothpaste and mouthwash in one, and I liked the feeling of using all natural ingredients to clean my mouth. Beautiful’s A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer are both made from natural botanical oils, and I liked the feeling of all natural ingredients on my face just as much! According to their website, “’Beautiful’ uses a rare combination of live fruit, nut and plant extracts to feed your skin cells and promote youthful, moist, beautiful glowing skin.”

I was sent a bottle of Beautiful’s A.M. Moisturizer and P.M. Revitalizer to review. The bottles came with my name on them, which is kind of cheezy but a good daily reminder that I am beautiful! The thing I noticed when I used it for the first time was the smell–a delicious citrusy blend that was both refreshing in the morning and relaxing at night. It was strange to put straight oil on my face–the product is made from 100% pure and natural botanical oils, and that’s it!–but it felt good and surprisingly not too greasy. Here’s a photo of my face before and after applying the A.M. Moisturizer. You can see how in the “after” photo my face has a healthy glow 🙂

before after

Like the company warns, I did experience a slight break out for a few weeks after starting to use Beautiful, but I still have random break outs all the time, so it was hard to tell how much of that was really caused by the oil removing toxins from my skin or just my crazy, 28-year-old self still suffering from acne. After using the products for about a month I do feel that it has helped my skin to look and feel smoother and to have a healthy glow. I like that it is an all-in-one moisturizer, toner, firmer, protectant, repair cream and age-defying serum. Any product that has all those possibilities in it saves me time and money, which are two things that desperately need saving in my life lately!

I recently had an outpatient nose surgery and the recovery has taken much longer than I anticipated.  Among the many many annoying and irritating things that have been making me miserable for the last few weeks (congestion, stitches, headaches, tender face, sore neck, mouth sores from the breathing tube during anesthesia, etc), another most obnoxious thing to deal with was not being able to wash my face for a full week.  After all that, my face is just crying out for some attention!  It is screaming for some high quality toner, cleanser, and moisturizer!  Help, evande!
d5cfb7b017f22c255b49d716906714af74247104
This stuff could not have arrived at a more perfect time.  The day before my bandages came off my face, I was taking these pictures and just aching to get it on my face!  By the smell of the bottles, I knew this was going to be a good thing.  Nothing smelled overly scented or fake, just pure and effective.
IMG_6862
These products have felt great on my poor face.  I think the key is how natural they are.  Check this out:
c9771c40689e2db2131d78a60dc927e458d3ec50As you can see, they are filled with the most delicious, creamy ingredients, each possessing qualities sure to improve the feel and appearance of any skin.  All of these products contain NO ALCOHOL, which in and of itself is awesome.  Did you notice these prices?  Let me convince you why this trio is totally worth $24.99 for the trio pack.
GENTLE FACIAL CLEANSER & MAKEUP REMOVER: This smells awesome.  Like a brand new bar of soap, but this product is actually soap-free.  It feels more like a moisturizer cream than a cleanser, and I like that a lot.  It effectively removes makeup without feeling like a harsh substance eating away at residue, but rather like a purifying cream that is soothing as it goes.

PORE MINIMIZING TONER:  This stuff is great at controlling shine.  My bottle came with an optional spray nozzle to attach.  I’ve never applied toner through a spray before (I’ve always applied with cotton balls), but I thought this was pretty cool.  The product provided instant relief on my irritated skin, and offered an immediate feeling of clean without a burning sensation.

OIL-FREE MOISTURIZER: This is just the cherry on top after the invigorating regimen above.  It is soothing, creamy, lightly scented, and without greasiness.  Surely the oil-free feature has something to do with that.  It is said to actually improve makeup instead of interfering with it.

Wouldn’t you love to smear your face with any or all of the goodness below?  Obtainable.  This is what you get with evande skincare.
b5cefa5d98b00cc46b15f3ac38dcb591c5a9044c
Girls, these are really big bottles.  You will get a lot of mileage out of these.  Based on how I’ve been using all three of these daily for two weeks now, I’m convinced that I’ll be taken care of for months to come.
Try this out for yourself!  Evande Skincare can be purchased on their website below, individually, or as a trio pack.
