Authentic Skin Remedies Natural Skin Care


I received trial-sized samples on the 7 products of the facial line to try for myself. I was able to try 6 out of 7 since one of the glass vials broke, but it had a really nice scent that's not too over-powering.  I think it's terrible to find many other products that contained chemicals that can harm other parts of the body. It's great to find that Authentic Skin Remedies have natural ingredients that are derived from fruits and plants.


CLEANSE - Sulfate-free Calming Cleanser

A light, foaming cleansing gel designed to help soften and smooth skin texture, with natural hydrating ingredients which reduce the appearance of fine-line dehydration. You can see skin look and feel renewed, supple, and fresh. Also is an gentle cleanser for dry scalp.

Multi Purpose Calming Cleanser for:
* face
* makeup remover
* dry scalp

    BALANCE - Seawater Facial Mist

    An invigorating, mineral-rich seawater spray to help skin feel uplifted, with more balanced moisture and a refreshed look to skin & hair. This multi-tasking mist acts as a toner to help prep skin before applying facial serum and facial crème and acts as a great blending formula to layer other skin care products with. The perfect cooling skin spritzer on-the-go, provides a boost of vital minerals. Works excellent as a natural, neutralizing deodorant.

    Multi Purpose Seawater Facial Mist for:
    skin toner
    * deodorant
    * hair mist

    REFINE - Fruit Enzyme Exfoliation

    Aromatic fruit enzymes containing a blend of papaya and pumpkin acts as a stimulating skin exfoliant to gently dissolve dry, rough patches on the surface. Softens dead skin cells to reveal healthier, smoother appearing skin texture.

    Multi Purpose Fruit Enzyme Exfoliation for:
    * face
    * décolleté
    * hands & feet
    * Blemish spot treatment

    ENRICH - Nourishing Lipid Serum

    A nourishing serum containing essential oils similar to those found within the natural environment of the skin. This serum replenishes and mimics the natural oils often depleted by environment and age. Designed to absorb into skins lipid layer to improve appearance by regenerating the natural moisture level of the skin.

    Multi Purpose Nourishing Lipid Serum for:
    * face
    * décolleté

    SOOTHE - Cooling Masque

    A soothing, cooling masque blended with pure Aloe Juice, Lemongrass, Eucalyptus and Rosemary Essential Oils. This is an ideal treatment to help skin purify, while calming sensitive skin.

    ABOUT THE FOUNDER:

    AMY RUEDA created Authentic Skin Remedies after successfully battling a rare form of neuroendocrine system cancer, believed to have been hormonally based with strong environmental links.

    Amy wanted her product line to center around three factors. First, they had to contain 100% certified organic ingredients, 100% essential oils, and be chemical free. Second, the products needed to actually work better than many of the popular anti-aging and solution skin care products currently containing harmful chemicals. Many of her products focus on treating common skin issues such as acne, rosacea and eczema using ingredients found in nature. Lastly, the products had to be easy for today's fast-paced, savvy consumers to use on a daily basis.

    The Bath and Body Luxe line is a three step regimen to polish, gloss, quench and nourish skin from head to toe. All products are plant and fruit based with 100 percent certified organic ingredients and pure essential oils.

    New Photos of Actress Jennifer Morrison of "Once Upon A Time"


    Thought I'd share with you a few pics of Once Upon A Time star JENNIFER MORRISON while on her Vancouver set. She’s enjoying her GORDON RAMSAY EVERYDAY Kitchen Products, which are available Exclusively in Canada at Walmart! She was taking a break from shooting, and didn’t rely on any fancy chefs or assistants to ease her hunger! She made a delicious Panini on the Gordon Ramsay Everyday grill, and brewed some delicious coffee using the Gordon Ramsay Everyday coffee maker! After a shopping trip to Walmart earlier in the day, the starlet also spent time wrapping Christmas gifts for co-stars.
