"Just a few years ago, Annmarie started to take a hard look at the products she was putting on her skin. In just a few short days of research, what she found shocked her.
Skin care products were severely under-regulated and most contained ingredients that weren’t safe at almost any amount. Even products that claimed they were organic or natural had hidden preservatives and other nasty additives.
She was frustrated and motivated to find a better option, because she realized so many people were using these supposedly “natural” products.
What she found was not encouraging. Many of the truly natural products weren’t up to her standards of quality or effectiveness.
It wasn’t long until she realized that if she wanted to have a truly clean and natural skin care line, she would have to do it herself.
So she did and Annmarie Gianni Skin Care was founded to provide a clean, natural skin care experience using natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients."
Annmarie Gianni Skincare is a wonderful line of 'Organic and Natural Pure Skin Care Products'. Everything is made with the perfect blends of oils, extracts, vitamins and other herbs and organic materials. When you use these products, you can feel your skin becoming cleaner and softer.
I received a Normal Custom Sample Set. It included Aloe-Herb Cleanser, Honey Coconut Mask, Ayurvedic Facial Scrub, Dead Sea Facial Scrub, Herbal Facial Oil, and Neroli Toning Mist. They also sent me a really neat booklet explaining each of their products, what they're made of, and how to use them. I have to make a note that the first ingredient in each product is Love. It just goes to show that they really care about their products and their customers!
I will admit, I am new to the skincare thing. I grew up with very oily skin, so the most I ever did was lather on some acne cream. Now that I've grown out of that phase, I've really started to notice how my skin acts and I care more about keeping it looking healthy. There are so many different products out there and its so hard to find the right one. But after trying Annmarie's, I ended my search.
The Aloe-Herb Cleanser works wonders on your skin even before you use the scrubs and masks. As soon as you rub it on your face, you feel the coolness of the Aloe and the smell is extremely relaxing. It is made with oil extracts, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants like Vitamin E. It has no extra anything that will damage your skin or cause it to get oily. It's very smooth and soothing.
I really enjoyed the Coconut Honey Mask. You apply it after the cleanser and let it sit for about 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with a wet towel. It is very relaxing, especially if you soak in a hot bath while you leave it on your skin. The key ingredient is Honey, which contains natural vitamins that nourish you're skin.
The Ayurvedic Facial Scrub is one of the most unique scrubs I've seen. It comes in a powder that you mix with a bit of water and cleanser to make your own scrub. An exotic blend of Indian Herbs, Moroccan Rhassoul Clay, and traditional herbal treatments is what makes up this exfoliating powder. The way your face feels afterwards is indescribable. It's something you just have to see for yourself!
My personal favorite is the Dead Sea Scrub. Until now I had never experienced it, but I had always heard about its skin healing powers. When I first put the scrub on my face and rubbed it in, I could feel it cleaning my pores and tightening my face. It felt great! Once I rinsed it off, I could immediately feel how smooth my face was. The change was unbelievable. If you're going to go all out, I highly recommend the Dead Sea Scrub!
Neroli Toning Mist. According to the booklet it's made with nothing but Love and Pure Organic Neroli Distillate. It smooths your skin and tightens your pores. The mist is very refreshing, it gives you a nice 'pick-me-up' when you're having one of 'those' days.
Last but not least is the Herbal Facial Oil. I was cautious about using this at first simply because it has 'oil' in the name. It really surprised me though, Instead of causing acne, it balances, smooths, and restores your skin. You apply the oil after the Toning Mist for best results. It really does give your face a beautiful, healthy, and youthful glow.
I definitely love my Annmarie products. They help me and motivate me to take care of my skin so I can keep it looking young well after these college years have passed. They have something for every skin type, and a line of anti-aging products. I highly recommend their skincare lines to everybody.
