Do Natural Beauty Products Work?

Do Natural Beauty Products Work?
I love the thought of using natural based beauty products that are also cruetly-free, but do they work?  I’ve taken the following products for a spin to see if they really work. I’ve also broken down beauty ingredient basics as to which ingredients to look for an why.

Key Ingredients to look for in skincare products:

  • Vitamin C –  helps create younger-looking, firmer-feeling skin while signs of uneven skin tone seem to disappear
  • Hyaluronic Acid – healing wounds, burns, skin ulcers, and as a moisturizer.
  • Vitamin E – help your skin stay healthier and more supple by ensuring you get enough of this antioxidant vitamin
  • Argan Oil – high in Omega-6 fatty acids, and linoleic acid. Research shows that when applied to skin, it eases inflammation while moisturizing the skin.
  • Niacinamide – helps calm acne
  • Glycolic – helps get rid of dead skin cells, thereby exposing live skin cells

This glycolic cleanser is not only great for a deep clean, but the glycolic helps get rid of dead skin cells that can clog pores and give skin a dull appearance. Keeping the outer layer of skin fresh can help prevent break-outs, regardless of any age. Skin feels refreshed and tight afterwards. Follow with a good moisturizer. Great for teens as well as aging skin.

Not only are the following products using natural ingredients and cruelty-free, but they are also paraben free, sulfate-free and phthalate free! 

100% Natural Stretch Mark Remover

If you have had a child and have no stretch marks, anywhere, then seriously you are a freak of nature. For the rest of us, those annoying little lines can end up on the stomach, bum or even back of legs. 

 This Stretch Mark Remover, with Neroli, Petitgrain and Mandarin Oil lying at the heart of our formula, works to penetrate deep into the skin to visibly diminish the appearance of your stretch marks and fine lines on your belly left from pregnancy.

Advanced Vitamin C+E Serum Campaign

This Swiss Formula Vitamin C+E Serum features 20% Vitamin C and Edelweiss, a special anti-aging plant that grows in the Swiss Alps. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil, Moringa Oil & Vitamin E, this serum is specifically formulated to restore firmness and reduce the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles, restoring your skin to its natural state of beauty.

This is great for lightening those spots that are starting to show from sun damage, or from preventing further damage from free-radicals. I use this after I wash my face at night FIRST and then I apply my night cream. It does absorb well, but I don’t recommend wearing ths under make-up.

Advanced Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer with SPF

This Swiss Formula Anti-Aging Day Cream with SPF 20 (unscented) features Edelweiss, a special anti-aging plant that grows in the Swiss Alps. Combined with Hyaluronic Acid, Coconut Oil, Moringa Oil and Vitamin E this day cream is specifically formulated to restore firmness and provide and every day protection from the sun for a more youthful and vibrant skin.

What is Edelweiss? Edelweiss (eyd-l-vahys) is a scarce short-lived flower found in remote, high altitudes of the Swiss Alps with strong natural levels of UV protection and high levels of Leontopodic Acids A and B for remarkable anti-inflammatory properties. Folklore states that love struck young men would try to endear themselves by collecting Edelweiss from hard to access peaks in the Alps as a promise of dedication.When you combine Edelweiss with SPF 20 and the moisture retaining strengths of Hyaluronic Acid, the natural sun protection of Coconut Oil along with Moringa Oil and Vitamin E, you get an effective and amazing product.

This is a nice light day lotion that is great to use as a stand-alone or under foundation. Not only does it protect skin, but the SPF added is an extra bonus so I think this is a value-play daycream purchase. Non-scented, so it won’t compete with anything else that you are applying scent-wise and great for those who are sensitive to fragranece.

I received these products for free in exchange for a review, but all opinions are my own.
