home-manuela6sig.jpg

I was recently introduced to a great skincare line called Isomers from Canada. Once I started reading up on  Isomers I wondered how I hadn’t heard of the brand yet. I couldn’t wait to try the products after reading up on all the great reviews. Here are a few of my favorite products from the Isomers line.

After just the first few weeks use I can definitely see an improvement in my skin, it’s much more hydrated and the fine lines around my eyes are less noticeable. It is surprisingly lightweight and when I applied it to my face it absorbed quickly into my skin.

I have big eyes so when they are puffy or dark it takes over my whole face. Isomers pur for eyes is a lifesaver for me and has helped keep my eyes looking great even when I stay up a little too late or allergies leave my eyes puffy. I can just apply a few drops of the pur for eyes serum and in less then 20 minutes my eyes look great the puffiness is diminished. Since I started using this a few weeks ago my under eyes look much brighter and the dark circles have faded.

Relief for your lips!

On top of being a gloss junkie use a lot of  lip balms to keep my lips smooth and hydrated. I have been switching between a few different brands but I found a lot made my lips feel more dry after the balm wears off. Then I found Shu Uemura’s depsea therapy lip balm and the difference has been amazing.

I have been applying it right before bed and my lips feel moisturized all night and through the next day. A great balm to soothe summer worn lips and keep them protected into the cooler fall and winter months.

Amazing!

With the hot summer weather in Oregon I’ve been wearing flip flops non stop and as a result my feet were getting really dry and yucky. When I was cleaning my room this weekend I found a brand new tube of Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme in the back of my dresser. I was so happy it’s like finding money in a coat or pair of pants you haven’t worn in a while.

Back to my feet ugh! So the last two nights before bed I have slathered my feet with Coconut Foot Creme and put sucks on. I can’t believe the difference in just two nights my feet feel so soft and smooth and the rough sand paper feeling has disappeared. They also look better, the skin looks much healthier and hydrated. Great product at a great price!

Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Creme
Go nuts for incredibly soft feet.

How it Works
This pampering natural foot cream combines coconut oil, lanolin and vegetable glycerin to revive and rejuvenate even the driest, most neglected feet. There’s also a hint of natural rosemary and peppermint oils to refresh tired feet.
How to Use It

Apply liberally and allow the cream to fully absorb. For a luxurious way to treat your feet, soak feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes and rub gently with a pumice stone. Massage Coconut Foot Creme into feet, paying close attention to heels and calloused skin. Then cover your feet with cotton socks overnight to soothe and seal in moisture.
Featured Ingredient

Coconut Oil — The flesh of the coconut is rich in emollient fat and, when pressed, yields a white, sweetly-scented, super-moisturizing oil, which is a solid at room temperature but easily melts on the skin.
