Review & Giveaway! Dr.Alkaitis Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil & One Love Organics Vitamin D Mist!
Hello lovelies! I have partnered up with EcoDivaBeauty & today as you can tell from the title of the article I am doing an international GIVEAWAY & a review of these products. By entering the giveaway you have the chance at winning BOTH of these goodies!
As most of you know I am currently living in France and the climate here can be pretty brutal. The weather changes from day to day and my skin is not used to this kind of change (California girl here!). So unfortunately my skin freaks out quite often due to that as well as the lovely pregnancy hormones that have taken over my body & mood swings! Add all that up together & you’ve got yourself dry flaky skin that is very hard to get rid of.
I received these products to try beginning of this year, so I’ve had sometime to put them into my daily repertoire and let me tell you they have done wonders. Right around January I was having these weird patchy dry skin chunks above my eye brows that would not go away no matter what I did. A few days of treatment with these two products and miraculously they went away.. So below are my thoughts on these products, ingredients & areas that I like to use them on and how often.
One Love Organics Vitamin D Mist: This is a good one to start with because as directed you are supposed to use this right after you cleanse on fresh skin and follow it up with serums, creams and so on. This mist smells so yummy & really gives you the feeling of just having a facial after cleansing. Part lightweight moisturizer, part toner, this botanical mist infuses skin with emollient oils and Vitamin E via a delayed time-release delivery system for long-lasting hydration and unparalleled efficacy. Shiitake mushroom, a natural source of Vitamin D, helps tone and balance while antioxidant-rich alpine rose helps to protect against environmental stressors and elemental dryness. I tend to use this mist mostly in the mornings, but sometimes midday especially if I am going bare face all day & want a little extra hydration without slapping on a thick moisturizer. Before use, shake well, spritz all over face ( I tend to do about 2-3 sprays) make sure to get the neck area as well. I let the mist absorb into my skin on its own & follow it up with a serum/Vitamin C/moisturizer. Whats funny is my daughter sees me doing this in the morning and insists on getting in on the action as well! HA So of course I give her a little spritz and she loves it too 🙂 The price tag on this mist is not bad at all, for $39 bucks you get 2oz which lasts forever & its organic! You can buy it directly from EcoDivaBeauty here!
Dr.Alkaitis Organic Nourishing Treatment Oil: Next up is this luxurious oil that I have literally been using everywhere! ha ha It smells very nice, the consistency is not too thick. As the brand states you can use this on your hair, face & body. I have used it on my face mostly at night when my skin needs a little more loving’ right after cleansing. Because it is an oil I try and let it absorb into my skin before I hit the pillow to avoid rubbing off the product. I have also been using it quite frequently on my growing baby bump to avoid stretch marks – about 3-4 pumps & massaging it in in a circular motion until absorbed. I also do a little on my breasts & butt if I am getting out of the shower before bed for a little extra hydration in those areas as they can also get stretch marks during pregnancy. Haven’t used it on my hair, just because I feel like its a little too thick for my locks, so I’ve been sticking to my other hair oils that have a little different consistency (more on my fave hair products in future posts!). What’s cool about this brand is that it’s organic as well. Formulated as a therapeutic raw health food for the skin, the Dr. Alkaitis products are results oriented, holistic organic skin treatments. They are edible and easily absorbed by the skin and each product is its own living, targeted delivery system.
