REVIEW: Skinn Cosmetics’ Enriched Softening Essence Pre-Treat & Hydrate Lotion!

SofteningEssence_lorez

As we age, our skin begins to sag, wrinkles become more apparent and we often look tired even when we are not. Wake up your skin with a new revitalizing treatment from Skinn Cosmetics. The new Enriched Softening Essence Pre-Treat & Hydrate Lotion is enhanced with young coconut water, flooding your skin with an exotic blend of 26 different fruit and plant extracts to soften, treat and invigorate your skin.

This concentrated formula features the high-performance of Tamarind Seed Extract to improve your skin’s elasticity and texture while intricately binding moisture more powerful than hyaluronic acid. With this instant burst of hydration, your skin will be transformed into a supple, soft and primed canvas ready to profoundly maximize the effect of all your other anti-aging treatments.

To use, saturate a cotton pad with the Softening Essence and gently pat and press all over the face and neck. For best results, use daily after cleansing and before other skincare treatments.

I’ve been using this product in the morning after washing my face, and I’m obsessed! It really soothes my skin, especially with this stupid winter weather! The coconut water feels heavenly, and you will notice a difference in your skin in just a matter of days!

Skinn Cosmetics’ Enriched Softening Essence Pre-Treat and Hydrate Lotion retails for $32 for 4.2 oz and is available for purchase at www.skinn.com and www.shophq.com.

Have dry, itchy winter skin? Let the Whish Three Wishes Sugar Scrub help you buff your way to soft, smooth skin in one shower. I am a fan of Whish  they have so many great bath and body products that smell great and work even better. Their Three Wishes Sugar Scrub does not disappoint.

Three Wishes sugar scrub features a moisturizing base of organic beeswax and shea butter., whipped to become a soft solid.  Brown sugar, raspberry seed, and bamboo powder do the heavy lifting, to exfoliate, while organic shea butter, organic, antioxidant raspberry butter and organic aloe moisturize, and Vitamin E extract, and organic avocado oil, renew your skin. I just scoop out a small amount and the product is thick and stays right where I need it without getting runny. The scrub has just the right amount of grit to buff my skin without irritating. I love how emollient the product is, my skin felt incredibly soft and smooth after just the first use. The Whish sugar scrubs use essential oils so their products smell amazing and are  natural and organic..

I am hooked on the eos lip balms. I love how the shape is easy to find in my purse no matter how packed I have it. The balm feels so great on my lips, especially in this cold winter weather. The new Blueberry Acai balm smells and heck tastes delicious. It has a great blueberry scent with a hint of acai. It tastes like a summer cocktail and is definitely one my favorite eos balms.

The eos Blueberry Acai Smooth Sphere is a must have for moms-to-be to keep their lips smooth and moisturized.  It has the delicious flavor of blueberries with the same love, delight and moisturization you always get from eos. This revolutionary smooth sphere applies directly on lips, so it’s more hygienic than pot lip balms. The lip balm not only tastes good, it includes anti-oxidant filled blueberry and acai berry extracts to keep you smiling.
