Lisa from Beauty Info Zone introduced me to the Artisan Naturals, an organic luxury skin and body care line whose products are sustainable, wild crafted, and fair trade ingredients. No petrochemicals, artificial fragrance (I am all for that), no artificial colorants, no sulfates, no parabens. Just pure magic! Okay, not true maybe some magic but I heard no one is admitting this. I received a couple of items to try and will review them later but I had to post about this one first because I fell in love with it from the start. It is called the Essential Nutrients Facial Elixir ($28USD) for normal/dry/sensitive skin which is the category I am in.
All I ever wanted in a serum was moisture and comfort, is that too much to ask for? Obviously for some brands its way too boring. I have tried many serums from the drugstore brands to the high end one that has ionic water (<--what does this mean) as a special ingredient. Some felt like water on the skin and evaporated. Others had that silicone-like slimy slip, the kind that feels like ripe dead fish. Some could be used just as a light moisturizer and some I was conned into buying their ridiculously priced moisturizer because if I mixed brands, the products would explode on my skin! (Not really but the sales assistant made it sound that way!)
This is one that I can use alone if I find it moisturizing enough for that time. For example summer is the time I get lazy and just want a moisturizer that feels light and lasts throughout the day. Or I can use this in addition to my moisturizer to give it that extra boost of moisture for the Fall/Winter months.
The serum is pretty much clear. Never sticky, greasy, or watery dry; it has just enough moisture to allow the skin to have elasticity and natural glow. And that equals youthful looking skin.
If you have normal to dry or sensitive skin but found your serums or your light moisturizer not working for you. Or maybe, you just want to try one but keep spending dollars on the drugstore brands which after trying many can add up to more than a high end brand, just stop spending and try this one instead. And right now there is a Spring Fling sale: 15% off with coupon code SP2011. What are you waiting for? You deserve the beauty to feel good!
