Have you visited your local Rite Aid this month?


Surprise box

I love being a part of the Rite Aid network. Each month the company sends me a box full of goodies to try out. It’s like my birthday and Christmas rolled up into one every month. I never know what I am going to receive. Many of the products they send me end up being my new favorites. Thank goodness we have a Rite Aid near by so I can purchase more of the products that I like the most.

Dove Cranberry

One of the products they sent this month didn’t even last a day! I received two packages of Dove chocolates. Both are made with whole fruit that has been dipped in chocolate. One package was blueberries and the other one was cranberries. Noticed how I said “was”. Between me and my family we finished off both packages before the end of the day. Thank goodness our local Rite Aid carries them. I was able to pick up a few more packages (a couple of them I hide for myself – LOL). I would never think to cover cranberries in chocolate but they pair together so good!

They are also available in chocolate covered cherries. I haven’t seen them locally but I am keeping an eye out for them.

Rite Aid also send me two packs of Mentos Gum (Fresh Mint and Tropical). I’m not much of a gum chewer, but my kids are. I do like to chew gum from time to time. Sometimes it relaxes me. I find if I’m stressing out a bit that chewing on some gum helps to calm me down.

Mentos Gum

I love Mentos candy but I’ve never had the gum before now. I like it. It does have a bit of a “kick” to it, but that is fine with me.

I’m glad I received two so that I could share with my family.

Just like the Dove chocolates the gum was also quick to disappear in my home.

One product I received that I use daily is Oil of Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil. This clear, fragrance free oil contains nine luxurious enriched natural oils including coconut, apricot kernel, grape seed extract, sunflower, evening primrose, sesame, jojoba, babassu, and mimosa oil. The oils help to hydrate your skin and protect against moisture loss.



Oil of Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is easy to use and apply. Simply put a few drops on your hand and then gently apply the oil to your skin in a circular motion.

I was concerned that putting oil on my face would make it greasy or cause breakouts. That has not happened. It’s lightweight and absorbs quickly. You don’t even know you are wearing it. I also have not broke out.

So far my face is free from dry patches, which I normally get during the winter months. I attribute that to the oil. It’s really nice. Plus a little bit goes a long way. It’s a big bottle and you only need a few drops each time you use it.

Speaking of winter and dry skin, like many people, the heels of my feet get REALLY dry during the winter months. So much so they split which is not only gross looking, but sometimes painful too.

Amoped Pedi

To remedy this problem I have been using the Amope Pedi Perfect electronic foot file (also from Rite Aid). I’ve been using it for well over a month now to remove dry skin.

Rite Aid send me a jar of Callex. Callex is made especially for dry, cracked heels. It helps to moisturize, soften and smooth cracked heels. Combined with the Amope Pedi Perfect my feet look awesome. I could wear sandals or flip flops right now and not have to worry about my feet being seen. I want to show them off. They look and feel great.


In addition to these products I also received some products from TheraBreath Oral Care. I have never heard of the brand before. One is toothpaste and the other is an oral rinse.

My family of four used up the toothpaste tube right away. I’ve been using the oral rinse. It has a light, minty taste to it. Its not strong like typical mouth rinses are. I find that most mouth rinses are too strong and almost feel like they are burning the inside of my mouth. I like that the TheraBreath Oral Rinse helped to eliminate the bacteria that causes bad breath in a gentle,  yet effective, way.

I plan on picking up more of the oral rinse the next time I stop by Rite Aid. Personally I really like how well it works. It also makes me feel more confident that my breath smells clean.


I would have enjoyed the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara that was sent to me, but my teenage daughter needed new mascara. It made no sense to purchase new mascara since Rite Aid was kind enough to send me some, so I gave it to my daughter.

I asked her how she likes it. She says she likes the curved lash brush. She said it helps her to do the corner of her eyelashes much easier (she turns the brush upside down to fit in the corners). She also tells me that is lasts a long time (it doesn’t flake off throughout the day) and it washes off easily.

Since she’s having good luck with the mascara I’ll pick up one for myself when I need to replace my mascara.


One of my goals for the new year was to get on track with my health. Taking a multi-vitamin was on my “to do” list for the new year. Rite Aid must have read my mind because they sent me some vitamins from GNC. I didn’t even know you could buy GNC products at Rite Aid. I was happy to hear that.

I received Ultra Mega Green Women’s Vitamins and Women’s Ultra Mega Women’s 50+. I’m not 50 (yet) so for now I have only been using the Ultra Mega Green Women’s Vitamins. These vitamins are made with eight wholesome vegetable, fruit and green blends. These nutrient rich blends provide your body with cell-protecting antioxidants. They also support immune health which is important during the winter months when colds are rampant.

I plan on using the Women’s Ultra Mega Women’s 50+ multivitamins too because they help support memory function which I need sometimes. They also help with breast and bone health and B-vitamins for energy (which I also need a lot of). These vitamins also combines a premium free radical protection blend with antioxidant vitamins, alpha-lipoic acid and green tea.


Rite Aid sent me a few other goodies which I’ll write about another time (I think this post is long enough – LOL).

As you can see Rite Aid has you covered whether you are looking for beauty products, health product or even some snacks for you and/or your family.

Must have products from Pür Minerals


Makeup Collage

Are you looking to update your look or change your beauty routine?

I tend to use the same products when applying make up, however I am always on the look out for something that looks better, is easier to apply (streamline my beauty routine) and better for my skin.

I’m a minimalist when it comes to make up. On a regular basis I sent to wear face powder, eye liner and mascara. When I want to get dressed up, of if it’s a special occasion, I will use blush, eye shadow, lipstick and other beauty products.

The face powder that I use regularly is from PurMinerals. I heard good things about it so I gave it a try one day and I never went back to the product I was using prior to it. Not only do I like the way it looks on my skin, it’s very lightweight. It feels like there is nothing on my face.

That is the one thing I don’t like about make up – feeling it on my skin. I don’t like it when my skin feels heavy, greasy or weighed down. For that reason I don’t like to wear liquid-type make up. I prefer the feeling of “naked” skin – even if it’s not truly free of products.

I like PurMineral products because they not only work well, they are also better for your skin.

If you are not familiar with the brand here is some information about them.

Create a flawless, beautiful appearance with Pur Minerals. This dynamic line delivers top quality ingredients to actually improve the health of your skin while enhancing your natural beauty. Formulated with pure mineral pigments, shea butter and vitamin E, and no harsh ingredients like chemical dyes, petroleum-based oils, fragrance or fillers, Pur Minerals is safe for all skin types, even sensitive. Each product also helps to improve the skin’s texture and radiance.

Pur Minerals is also an environmentally responsible company. By reducing the paper content in their packaging, they have saved 1,149 trees as of 2009. Plus, they are certified cruelty-free by PETA, which means they do not test ingredients, formulas or finished products on animals.

I’m sure you can see now why I like the brand.

PurMinerals offers more than just face powder. They have different products for your eyes, skin and lips.

Here are a few examples.

Color Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow

Color Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow: Obtain a flawless glow while minimizing the appearance of pores, lines, wrinkles and imperfections with this illuminating primer. Vitamins and antioxidants help rejuvenate dull and tired skin to give you a glowing complexion ($31, PurMinerals.com)

Disappearing Ink Concealer

Disappearing Ink Concealer:  This complexion quick-fix not only corrects the look of fine lines, dark spots and visible pores, but also helps improve the overall condition of your skin. A unique Diamond Complex that reflects light away from blemishes helps achieve complexion perfection. ($23, PurMinerals.com)

Wake Up Brows

Wake Up Brows: Perk up your brows and eyes with this dual-ended, self sharpening pencil. One end gives your arches bold definition with the brow pencil tip and shaping brush. The other end reveals a soft pink illuminator to brighten eyes instantly. ($24, PurMinerals.com)

Soul Mattes Eye Shadow Palette

Soul Mattes Eye Shadow Palette: Give your makeup look a velvety smooth finish. This palette offers eight warm hues and paired with your favorite Pür Minerals mascara, your eyes are sure to pop this autumn. ($32, PurMinerals.com)

I have a few of these products.

I love the eye shadow. Its so lightweight. You barely notice that you are wearing it. Not only that the colors are very natural looking. They accent your eyes more so than trying to make them stand out like they would if you applied dark blue or neon green eyeshadow. These shadows make your eyes look prettier without looking too made up.

The colors last all day and wash off easily which is a “plus” if you ask me.

Normally I don’t like anything on my skin except facial powder, but I was curious about the Color Correcting Primer Illuminate & Glow. The older I get the more my skin changes. My skin is very uneven. Especially around my eyes. For some reason under my eyes is a lot lighter than the rest of my skin. I look like a raccoon!

The primer, thankfully, felt good on my skin. I honestly didn’t feel like my skin was weighed down. It didn’t feel any different then the powder (only) that I normally use.

PurMinerals Products

It also helps the powder (and sometimes cover up when I have a blemish) last longer. I also like that it helps to even my skin and even give it a bit of a “glow.” I think it  makes my skin more refreshed.

The Disappearing Ink Concealer is really nice. Other cover ups that I have used in the past tend to stand out (you know I’m using a cover up). This one blends into your skin. You can’t tell that you are wearing it.

It’s also good for covering up dark circles under your eyes, especially when combined with the primer.

I didn’t try the Wake Up Brows because I never do anything with my brows. I’m embarrassed to say I don’t even pluk or wax them. They are just “there.” Maybe some day I should look into doing something with them.

If you would like to learn more about these or other PurMinerals products visit www.PurMinerals.com. You can also find the brand on social media.

What’s new from Alberto VO5


Me and my once beautiful hair.

Me and my once beautiful hair.

My hair used to be my best feature. I had such thick and luscious hair when I was younger. My hairdresser referred to it as a lion’s mane. Sadly years of coloring and perming my hair, plus age, hormones and other factors have drained my glorious locks of hair. These days my hair has thinned out, turned white (gray and silver too) and doesn’t look nearly as good as it once did.

Right now I have long hair. It comes to about half way down my back. If I reach my hair behind my back I can grab the end of my hair.

Lately I have been seriously considering chopping a lot of it off and leaving my hair a little longer than shoulder length. Now that I work I don’t have that much time to do my hair the way I’d like to. It might be easier to take care of if it’s shorter, plus maybe it will help with my dry, brittle ends.

I love trying out different bath and body products – including hair products. I’m always on the look out for the best products for my hair, skin, face and body.

Alberto VO5 is a brand that I have been using ever since I was a teenager. I remember using the brands weekly hot oil treatments. I still remember the chipped blue plastic cup I would bring in the shower with me to heat up the hot oil so I could apply it to my hair.

Hot Oil

The brand has been around for decades. The same hot oil treatment I used on my hair 30+ years ago is still found on store shelves. In fact I still use it. My teenager daughter uses it as well.

The conditioning hairdressing cream is also a great product. I’ve used that since I was a teen too. It helps smooth out dry, split ends.

Alberto VO5 has expanded it’s product line over the years.

Another favorite product, one I use on occasion, is Alberto VO5 Hot Oil Shower Works Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment.

This product is super easy to use. Simply apply it to your hair and scalp BEFORE shampooing your hair. Leave the product on for exactly one minute then thoroughly rinse it out of your hair. Then shampoo and style like you normally would.


The VO5 Hot Oil Shower Works Weekly Deep Conditioning provides your hair with five essential vitamins and proteins that it needs to look and feel it’s best. It’s great for dry, damaged and/or over processed hair that needs repair and deep conditioning.

It’s similar to the Alberto VO5 Hot Oil Weekly Intense Conditioning Treatment that I used since I was a teen. The only difference is that you don’t have to warm up the oil before using it. It’s ready to use as soon as you hop in the shower.

You can use either product once a week. They are similar products so there is no need to use both of them during the week. I prefer the VO5 Hot Oil Shower Works Weekly Deep Conditioning because it doesn’t need to be warmed up before using it. I only have about 10 minutes in the shower in the morning so the less time in the shower the better.

Shine, Glow and Go

Alberto VO5 has a new product that will soon be available at fine retailers nationwide. It’s called Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil.

NEW Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil is a light, natural oil blend for both hair and body. Infused with VO5’s signature 5 essential vitamins, this ultra-hydrating, fast-absorbing oil helps replenish dry hair and skin to feel soft, silky and look more radiant. Free of mineral oils, paraben and dyes.

I was sent a bottle of the new Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil to try out. It comes in a spray bottle to make it easy to apply to your hair.

Since it’s an oil I like to know that I am not applying too much (which can leave your hair looking greasy) so I prefer to spray some in my hand, rub my hands together, then apply it to my hair. You can spray it on your hair directly if you prefer.

I like to keep the oil on the end of my hair where I need it most. That is another reason why I find it easier to spray it in my hand and apply to my hair. It gives me control as to where I want to apply the product.

The first time I used it I did spray it on my hair but accidentally sprayed too much which made my hair look very greasy and somewhat stiff. I had to wash my hair and apply it again. The next time I knew to apply it sparingly. A little bit goes a long way. You do not need a lot of this product to reap it’s benefits.

My hair now. Should I cut most of it off?

My hair now. Should I cut most of it off?

Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil has a pleasant scent too. It’s a very light scent. I didn’t notice it much after I applied it so yo don’t need to worry about the scent clashing with your perfume.

This product is for both your hair and skin. I apply this to my body as soon as I step out of the shower when my skin is still a bit moist. My skin drinks it right in. For this option using it as a spray is a lot easier. I just spray it on, rub it around (if necessary) and let it absorb into my skin. It absorbs quickly so you don’t need to wait around for your skin to dry. You can get dressed shortly after you apply it to your skin.

I like that it adds moisture to my skin. It almost seems like there is a “barrier” on my skin that helps keep moisture in. It makes my skin feel soft and smooth.

Sometimes when I get out of the shower my skin feels “stiff”. I think that is because most soaps can dry out your skin. Using the spray as soon as I get out of the shower gets rid of that stiff feeling. The moment I spray it on it’s like I get instant relief from the dry feeling I get from using soap.

VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil

Over all I like this product. I like that it serves more than one use too. Plus it’s from a brand that I have used since I was a teen and a brand I trust.

The new product has a retail price of $4.99 and it is now available at Walgreens and other regional retailers such as Kroger, Ralph’s, HEB, Publix, Winn Dixie, Bi-Lo, Hannaford, Giant Eagle and many more.

For more information about these and other Alberto VO5 products visit www.VO5Haircare.com. You can also check out the brand on Facebook and on Twitter (they have secondary Twitter account too).

What do you think about the new Alberto VO5 Shine, Glow & Go Beauty Oil? Does it sounds like a product you’d like to try?

Are you a fan of Alberto VO5 products? Do you have a favorite product from the brand?

Don’t Call Me Ma’am



It’s a word I don’t like to be called – Ma’am. I don’t know why but it make me feel “old.” I would rather be called “Miss.” Whatever you do, please don’t call me ma’am.

A funny thing is there is a beauty brand by the same exact name – Don’t Call Me Ma’am. It’s true!

Don’t Call Me Ma’am a new skincare line. The line consists of eleven products for the face and body that have been created with ingredients that are good for you (no parabens, sulfates or harsh chemicals), packaging that is good for the earth (it’s 100% recyclable) and attitude that is good for the soul.

When I read this about the brand I already liked them. I like that their products are made without all the “bad stuff” that I certainly don’t want to put on my skin or face. I also like that the packaging is 100% recyclable. Most beauty products on the market come in packing that cannot be recycled. I wish more brands would get on board and create “Earth friendly” products and packaging too.

I like the story about how the brand came to be too.

Founders Ilene Ruvinsky and Kathleen Spitzer created Don’t Call Me Ma’am after constantly seeing beauty products tout flashy ingredients with overblown promises that made them feel like they needed to fix something about themselves. The products they have developed instead celebrate what is smart, sexy, surprising and thriving in the beating heart of today’s woman. They believe that women are living their lives to the fullest, and need high quality skin care products to ensure healthy skin that they don’t have to worry about. Ma’am is a label, a remnant of a by-gone era that deserves to be tossed into the dust bin of history!

What a great story. It’s fun to learn the backstory behind brands/products and how they got started.


Don’t Call Me Ma’am sent me some products to try out for myself.

Wash It Away Cleanser – This is a very gentle cleanser. Often cleansers tend to dry out my face – which is something I DON’T want to happen, especially during the winter months which are already harsh on my skin. It washes my face well and rinses off completely without any residue or stickiness.

In Balance Toner – I don’t normally use a toner. In the past toners I’ve used had to be applied with a cotton ball. This is a spray that allows you to spritz toner on your face. It feels soothing on the skin and absorbs into the skin quickly. According the the product description the In Balance Toner rebalances your skin’s pH levels and protect against inflammation. I’m not really sure if it’s doing that on my skin. I just know that it feels nice and refreshing when I use it.

Face love Moisturizer – This is a very nice moisturizer. It feels light when you apply. It doesn’t weigh down your skin or make it feel heavy. It absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and subtle. It’s made to be used in the morning after you wash and tone your face and before you apply make up. I have used this in the evening too a few times. I like the way it feels. I don’t like heavy, thick things on my skin. I prefer light weight products. I don’t want to know I have anything on my skin.

So far I am pleased with the products and I would be interested in trying out other Don’t Call Me Ma’am products. They have many more products available in their product line.

The products might not be “budget friendly” for most people, but considering how much big brand name products cost (similar products) the Don’t Call Me Ma’am products are not priced too bad.

If you would like to learn more about Don’t Call Me Ma’am products visit DontCallMeMaam.com. You can also find the brand on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest). Links to their social media sites can be found on the brand’s home page.

What do you think about the Don’t Call Me Ma’am product line? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Start of 2015 looking your very best



It’s the start of a new year. If you are like most people you want to make 2015 your best year ever. For some people this means loosing weight, exercising and eating healthy. For others it might mean a new hair cut, new hair color and maybe even a new wardrobe.

All of these things are well and good but why not start off with the #1 most important thing – your skin! Your skin might not be getting the attention that it deserves at the start of the new year.

I’m sure you have heard people say “When you look good, you feel good.” That is so true! I may not be the most confident person when it comes to my looks, but I do know when I think I look good (clean, glowing skin, hair looks good…) I FEEL good.

Some people suffer from acne. That can play a huge role in how confident you feel. If you are self conscious about your skin its going to effect your self esteem.

If you find that acne issues are affecting you in a negative way it’s time to do something about it.

One product you might be interested in is ACZONE® Gel. ACZONE® Gel is NOT a retinoid, topical antibiotic or benzoyl peroxide product. It’s the #1 non-retinoid acne treatment prescribed in the U.S.

ACZONE® Gel treats both inflammatory and non-inflammatory acne. I’m sure many people have suffered from both kinds at some point in their lives. Inflammatory acne are those red, sore, huge pimples that actually can hurt when you touch them. Non-inflammatory acne is the little bumps and spots you get on your face that are not necessarily painful or uncomfortable. They are just an “eye sore” to look at.


ACZONE® Gel contains an active ingredient called topical dapsone. This is used in place of benzoyl because benzoyl is is not necessarily good for you skin. It can actually bleach your clothes and pillow cases. Would you really want a product like that on your skin? No way!

And unlike other acne product, ACZONE® Gel is not known to cause sun sensitivity.

If you have tried other acne products (over the counter or prescription) and you want to see if ACZONE® Gel could work for you, visit your Dermatologist.

For more information visit www.aczone.com.

Chapped and dry winter lips are also not something you want to deal with for the new year. You want to have soft, smooth, kissable lips.

If your lips are dry I would recommend a sugar scrub for your lips. Simply sprinkle a little sugar in the palm of your hand and drizzle on a smidgen of Olive oil. Mix it together with your finger and apply to your lips. Gently work in a circular motion around your lips to exfoliate them and remove dead, dry skin. The sugar exfoliates and the oil adds moisture. It’s not the tastiest thing but it works wonders.

You can also Google “Homemade Lip Scrubs” for more recipes and ideas.

Another option to keep your lips moisturized and help prevent them from drying out and splitting is a product called Lypsyl.


Lypsyl is the only lip balm that is formulated with all natural, pure Swedish bees wax as well as Shea butter, coconut oil, Vitamin E and Vitamin A to provide unsurpassed moisture and lip protection. It also has a creamy texture that applies smoothly to your lips.


Lypsyl is available in four different varieties;

  • Chamomile & Honey
  • Original MInt
  • HoneyBerry
  • Extreme Cold Sore Relief

The products have a suggested retail price of $2.99 (the Extreme Cold Sore Relief retails for $6.99). You can find them nation wide at Walgreens.

For more information about Lypsyl visit their Facebook page (Facebook.com/Lypsyl-Lipbalm).

If you are looking for products to care for your body check out all the wonderful products available from The Body Shop. They have plenty of great products for your hair and skin as well as makeup and fragrances.

I LOVE their gift sets. Not only do they make great gifts for others – they also make great gifts for yourself.


The Body Shop has a product line in the scent called Moringa. It’s an awesome scent. It’s a bit “old fashioned.” Something about it reminds me of my great-grandmother (in a good way!). The Moringa Body Scrub is great for removing dry, dull skin and dead skin cells. Follow that up with Moringa Shea Body Butter and your skin will look (and smell) fresh, clean and glowing.

The Moringa Beautifying Oil is also great to have. It’s an all over body oil. You can use it on your body, cuticles, face and even your hair. Since it’s an oil you need to use it sparingly – especially on your hair. It really helps your skin feel silky smooth and oh-so-soft.

The same products are available in Olive oil. It has a lighter scent but the same wonderful properties to leave your skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and silky smooth. The scent is also a lot lighter which is nice for people who are not fond of scented products.

If you are like me and you do enjoy scents, check out the strawberry scented product line found at The Body Shop.

For a truly decadent experience try the Strawberry Body Polish, followed up by the Strawberry Shea Body Butter and Strawberry Body Mist. Your significant other will find you irresistible!


It’s important to take care of your body from your head to your toes. With products like Lypsyl for your lips, ACZONE® Gel to clear up acne and the variety of delightful products you can find at The Body Shop you can start off your new year with soft smooth skin and lips as well as acne free skin.

What your beauty goals for the new year? Do you have a problem area you are hoping to take care of in 2015? Feel free to share your thoughts.

Dry Winter Skin Gets the “Midas Touch” from Gold Elements’ D’Or Facial Cream



I am always on the look out for beauty products that will improve the quality of my skin. I know that there is no “magic bullet” that will erase years off of my face, but I do know there are plenty of wonderful products available that can make my skin look and feel great.

I don’t have the greatest complexion to begin with. My face tends to get dry and I get red patches on my cheeks (Rosacia). Occasionally I still break out with acne too.

I do have fine lines and wrinkles on my face (especially around my mouth) which I find bothersome too. I think they make me look old, even though I’m not old.

One of the “perks” of being a blogger is being afforded the opportunity to try out products I might not otherwise know about. Such is the case with Gold Elements D’Or Facial Cream.

A multi task, gentle, moisturizing cream with refreshing ingredients, that assists in counteracting the external evidences of skin aging. Helps to condition and rebalance the skin, leaving it feeling fresh, smooth, and healthy looking.

First and foremost I love the packaging. I neglected to take a photo of it when it arrive. The jar came inside a box that was wrapped in a lovely ribbon. That was a nice touch.

Gold Elements D'Or Facial Cream 2


Gold Elements’ D’Or Facial Cream comes in a jar. To use simply dab your fingers into the jar to get some of the cream, then gently apply it to your skin. That is easy enough to do.

The cream is very thick, but it doesn’t feel think when you apply it to your skin. It’s as if it “dissolves” and immediately absorbs into your skin. Once it’s absorbed you don’t even feel it. Your skin does not feel heavy, greasy, sticky or weighed down in any way.

I believe that “less is more” and I don’t go crazy when it comes to beauty products. On most days all I wear is some face powder, eye liner and mascara. I don’t like the feel of heavy make up on my face. For that reason I tend to wash my face immediately when I get home. I prefer the feel of freshly washed skin.

I worried that I would feel this cream on my skin when it was applied, since it’s thick in the jar. That has not been the case at all. I barely notice I am wearing it.

Here is some addition information about the Gold Elements’ D’Or Facial Cream worth noting.

Between the dry air outdoors and the constant indoor heating, every winter our skin is stripped bare of its natural moisture, highlighting fine lines and wrinkles. Gold Elements’ D’Or Facial Cream will deliver a wealth of moisture to your parched winter skin while simultaneously countering the external evidences of aging.

Gold Elements uses pure 24k gold leaves in its rich facial cream, which provides several astounding benefits for the skin like:

Quickening cell renewal for a radiant glow.

Increasing the oxygen and blood flow of the skin.

Boosting collagen and elastin production that assists in firming and tightening the skin,

The D’Or Facial Cream conditions and rebalances the skin, leaving it feeling fresh, healthy and smooth. Plus, its gentle, velvety formula is perfect for people with sensitive skin.

I have been using the product for a couple of weeks and to be honest I don’t notice any changes as far as it helping to firm and tighten my skin. I also don’t see a “radiant glow”. At least not yet. I know with some products it takes several weeks of use before you really notice a difference.

Gold Elements carries a variety of beauty products.

Gold Elements carries a variety of beauty products.

As a gentle, lightweight moisturizer that goes great on my skin both day and night,  Gold Elements’ D’Or Facial Cream is a great choice. I apply it on my skin in the morning after I wash my face and before I apply make up. I also use it when I wash my face and get ready for bed.

I like how it makes my skin feel. My skin feels soft. I also have not had any issues with dry patches or breakouts since using the product. So far, so good. I am pleased with Gold Elements’ D’Or Facial Cream.

The only downside I can see is that it’s not cheap. The jar will set you back $149.00. For someone who lives on a budget I cannot justify that kind of money – even though I do enjoy the product. Maybe some day when money is not an issue I would certainly consider purchasing more of this product.

If you would like to learn more about this and other products from Gold Elements visit GoldElements-USA.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All links can be found at the bottom of their website.

Have you tried any products from Gold Elements? If so, which product/products and what did you think about them?
