Product Review: Zakia’s Moroccan Black Soap, Kessa Exfoliating Mitt & Argan Oil.

Happy Sunday to all of you. Yes it’s another hot & humid day. Today wanted to do another product review for products from Zakia’s Morocco. As many of you know I did a past review for their Ghassoul Clay Mask which I love and use weekly. Was very excited to have the chance to experience more products from Zakia’s Morocco.

Shall be reviewing three products today. Will be reviewing Zakia’s Moroccan Black Soap, Kessa Exfoliating Mitt & the Argan oil. Like that this company is privately owned & it’s a family business. Zakia is sharing her secrets for great skin & hair. With all of that being said let’s get into the reviews.

Zakia’s Moroccan Black Soap: Normally most soaps come in a bottle with a pump or in a bar form. So this process of soap is new to me, but I was open to the process. Actually it’s very easy to use. The consistency of this soap could be compared to a caramel syrup. This product has an earthy like scent, but it will disappear.

Directions to use Zakia’s Moroccan Black Soap: First make sure your bath or shower water is hot. Allow the water to warm up your skin for a few minutes first. Use a generous pinch of the soap, and place on your skin. Use a loofah or face cloth to work in circular motions. It’s suggested to leave on for 5 to 10 minutes so it can unclog your pores, and it does.

Pros: Yes this form of soap is new to me, but I enjoyed using it. This soap will not strip your skin. Actually found it to be hydrating & nourishing. Another positive is that this soap is great on your face & body. If any of you have issues with face or body acne then you will adore this product. True this is a soap, but think of it as a face & body treatment also.

Con: This product has an earth scent to it. Normally I am use to heavily fragranced soaps, and so it was an adjustment. Since this product is good for the skin I don’t mind the earthy scent. Oh the scent will dissipate so no worries.

Ingredients:
Potassium Olivate,

Potassium Hydroxyde
Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil (Argan Oil)

Kessa Royal Exfoliating Glove: I love this exfoliating glove. Everyone needs to exfoliate their skin. Exfoliated skin looks healthier, and is healthier as it removes toxins from the skin. I would suggest using the glove at least twice a week. Oh if you self tan you need this glove to remove the old, dry & dead skin. What a fabulous glove, and it’s easy to keep clean.

Directions: After you have cleansed your skin with your Zakia’s Black Moroccan soap it’s time to use your glove. This glove can be used on your face & body. Of course be more gentle with the skin on your face. Start with a side to side motion followed by up & down. From the first use I noticed old skin rolling off. After you have finished exfoliating rinse off with warm water.

Pros: It’s very easy to use, and exfoliates without using harsh chemicals. My skin looks vibrant & refreshed. I do not need to use as much body butter or lotions on my skin. Feel as if my skin is more balanced too. Of course my favorite benefit is how good my self tanner looks, and it last much longer thanks to this exfoliating glove.

Cons: There are no cons to this this glove. It’s awesome!

Zakia’s 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil: I am a lover of Argan oil. It’s great to use on your hair, face, body & nails. I received the 2fl. oz argan oil. This bottle will last you a long time. Zakia’s Argan oil is Eco Cert organic.

Pros: This Argan oil is moisturizing without being greasy or heavy. My skin just absorbs the oil. Like a product that is multi use. Honestly I use from my head to my toes. My skin looks hydrated all day long from one application.

Cons: Once again no con to this product. Hope to try one of the scented Argan oils next.

Product Review: ISA Professional Xanadu 24K Gold Serum

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair product review.

Good afternoon everyone. Hope all of you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Today shall be reviewing ISA Professional Xanadu 24K Serum. This serum is very special with the addition of 24K gold flecks in it. Don’t believe have ever seen any serum with 24k gold flecks in it.

This serum is unique as it combines both vitamin c & 24k gold. Have used this product for a little over a month now. First I want to share a product description from the manufacture.

Visually you can see the gold flecks in the serum. I love the concept of combining both vitamin c & 24k gold. This serum also has a faint powder like scent to it which I love. The directions say to apply twice a day. Of course do what works best for your life, and skin.

Serums are a crucial component to any skin care routine. A serum that works well on my skin may not be the best fit for your skin. In this blog just want to share with you my experience using this product. Of course for any product to be it’s most effective consistency it key.

ISA Professional Xanadu 24K Serum has many positives & some negative aspects to the product. Overall I have to say it’s a good serum, and have noticed some positive results.

Positives: This serum is hydrating, and hydrated skin looks younger. Find that the serum absorbs quickly. Have also noticed that my skin feels softer, and look refreshed. One pump of this product can easily cover your face, and neck.

Negatives: Listen I do like this product, but it has some negative aspects to it. My main issue with this serum is it feels sticky on the skin. Now this could be due to getting to much product in a certain area. Even after working the serum in with my finger tips for over a minute the sticky texture remains. I do feel there is bit to much of the 24k gold & needs more vitamin c.

After using this product for a month I do like it. Just wish something could be done about the sticky like finish of the serum on the skin. Having said that this product may be better for someone who is older. Yes it’s a quality product, and would highly recommend this to anyone with concerns of aging.

Want to thank all of you for stopping by my blog, and hope you have a blessed day.

Product Review: Leven Rose Rosehip Oil

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review.

Oil seem to be all the rage in the beauty & skin care world. With the popularity of these oils there are so many to suit various skin care needs. Today I would like to share with you a product from Leven Rose. Last few weeks I have been using Leven Rose Rosehip Oil.

levenrose

Product Description:
** Leven Rose Rosehip Seed Oil is one of a kind. Rosehips are cultivated in the mountains of Chile, where they are grown free of pesticides and fertilizers to the keep the plants 100% organic.

Immediately after harvesting the rosehips, the seeds are removed, and are cold pressed. Cold pressing of the seeds keeps the oil in its purest form, leaving all of the essential components of the oil intact, and undisturbed.

We never refine our Rosehip Oil. Although some prefer refined rosehip oil, because it takes some of the color and smell out of the oil, it also removes a great amount of the essential fatty acids found naturally in this wonderful oil. The oil is quickly packaged to prevent oxidation.

When applying our organic Rosehip Oil to your skin, you will notice the rejuvenating effects taking place. You will notice the Rosehip Oil quickly soaks into your skin, which has earned it the name “a dry oil”, meaning it doesn’t feel greasy.

Because Leven Rose Rosehip Oil is 100% organic, you never have to worry about chemicals or GMOs.

Apply daily to diminish any age spots and blemishes.

I am a regular user of oils for my face, body, nail, and yes hair. Now many people think Rosehip oil should smell like roses, but it does not. As it actually comes from a bush like plant it does have an earthy smell. While it has a faint earthy smell it fades quickly.

Leven Rose Rosehip Oil comes in an dark brown glass 1 fl. oz bottle with a dripper top. While this product comes in a 1 fl. oz bottle it should last a very long time. When applying this oil to my face, and neck I need maybe 3 droplets. The oil is very rich, and a golden color.

Application of this oil is easy. Make sure your skin is clean, and dry. Place the drops into your hand, and rub your hands together. Now you will gently apply the oil to your face & neck. I find that lightly patting in upward stokes helps the oil to absorb better, and do it’s job. Noticed my skin looks hydrated, and actually stayed hydrated for a longer period of time. Often I am washing dishes, and my hands get very dry. So put this oil to the test. My hands are no longer cracked, dry or hurt.

When using this oil less really is more. Leven Rose Rosehip oil is more of a, “dry oil” really that means it won’t leave your skin greasy. Please keep your oil in a cool dry place. Below please find a link to purchase on amazon. Shall also have links to their homepage, facebook & twitter.
