Enchanted Apothecary Giveaway!Enchanted ApothecaryLast month we had our first review and giveaway for some beautiful bar soaps by Enchanted Apothecary and today we are featuring some skin care items. The BIZ is smitten with this line because the products serve your body, mind, and soul. It is simply far more than a typical beauty product line. The artisan skin care arrives in a recycled kraft paper box wrapped with an eco-friendly onyx raffia ribbon  A clear quartz crystal adorns the box, a beautiful keepsake to treasure.

Enchanted Apothecary features cleansers, elixirs, and moisturizing creams for skin, as well as stunning bar soaps. The products are made in small batches and are 100% natural. What is truly unique to this line is that the products are not only infused with crystals, they also have an actual crystal inside. Every day life can throw off your balance and crystals help to heal and rebalance that energy.

Inside my Enchanted Apothecary box I found the three skin care items that the owner, Felicia, will be sending to our giveaway winner:  Clarity Cleansing Oil, Timeless Eye Cream, and Harmonia Facial Moisturizer.

Enchanted Apothecary Clarity Cleansersnowflake-obsidian

The Clarity Cleansing Oil with Snowflake Obsidian ($20.95) is a cleansing oil that is applied to dry skin. Just massage it in then wipe off with a warm washcloth. It removes all traces of makeup, dirt, and grime, leaving skin incredibly soft and smooth. The cleansing oil contains castor, grapeseed, and jojoba oils that attract dirt while also leaving skin moisturized. In addition, lavender and rosemary essential oils work with dandelion and plantain leaf to heal and soothe skin. The cleansing oil is infused with snowflake obsidian, which further calms and soothes the skin.

Enchanted Apothecary Timeless Eye Creamrose-quartz-crystal

The Timeless Eye Cream ($34.95) is a jar of thick, creamy goodness for the delicate undereye area. Ingredients include arnica flower, bilberry, white tea and nettle leaf, along with an infusion of rose quartz crystal. This elegant eye cream plumps up fine lines and wrinkles and keeps skin healthy and young looking. As with all jar skin care products, don’t use your fingers to scoop out the product.

Enchanted Apothecary Harmonia Facial Moisturizer

The Harmonia Facial Moisturizer ($38.95) is an excellent moisturizer for combination skin. It balances out the dry and oily areas with a blend of burdock root, green tea, rosemary and chamomile. It’s also infused with Clear Quartz Crystal, which helps protect skin and keep it balanced. My skin absolutely loves this creamy moisturizer! It leaves it soft, smooth, and glowing.

Makeup Wars – let’s remove that makeup with DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

This week’s Makeup Wars is about Waterproof makeup and makeup removers. Since I don’t have anything that’s remotely new in the world of waterproof makeup I decided to write about the cleansers in my life and in particular my newest favorite, DHC Deep Cleansing Oil.

If you are keeping up with the latest in skincare then you already know that Asian skincare, in particular Japanese, is storming the market. DHC isn’t a new company but it is an extremely popular one. I’m a huge fan of their products, especially the Silky Cotton Squares which I buy in bulk.

The vision behind DHC is rooted in the beneficial properties of virgin olive oil. Found to be one of nature’s finest ingredients for helping to achieve and maintain healthy, younger-looking skin, olive oil became the foundation for DHC’s full line of skin-gentle products.

Japanese products based on Spanish olive oil? It doesn’t get more unique than that. We think our mixed-culture heritage is right at home in the United States, where individual tastes and preferences are celebrated.

 

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is a makeup remover for your face and can be used on your eyes. It’s the only cleansing oil that I’ve found actually removes the coats of mascara I use along with my eyeliner and doesn’t sting my eyes. I was wary of using it on my eyes at first so I just used it on my face. It did such a remarkable job that I became brave and used it to remove eye makeup too.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil directions

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil directions

The way you use this is to start with everything DRY. Your hands should be dry when you pump out the remover and your face should be dry when you apply it. The next step is to massage it onto your dry face and let it start working to remove your cosmetic residue. Next add water and watch it transform to a a milky emulsion. This rinses off cleanly and easily whether you just use water or a wash cloth.

What you are left with is a soft, hydrated feeling. It’s not dry, it’s not greasy. I don’t need to double cleanse when I’m using DHC Deep Cleansing Oil since this does everything in one step. That doesn’t mean I don’t double cleanse at times especially because I like exfoliating with a sonic cleansing machine like Instrumental Beauty Sonic Touch or the Michael Todd Soniclear Elite.

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil ingredient list

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil ingredient list

  • In a clinical study, 92% of participants agreed Deep Cleansing Oil worked better than a leading cleanser at removing complexion makeup
  • Unique water-soluble formula rinses thoroughly
  • Rich in vitamins and antioxidants
  • Nourishes and hydrates for younger-looking skin
  • 1 sold every 10 seconds worldwide

The DHC Deep Cleansing Oil is the world’s most popular product in its category. There’s no fragrance to it, it’s easy to get through Amazon or DHC’s website, and it works amazingly well. It’s one stop shopping. From now until July 31, 2017 they even have a fabulous special on DHC. If you are a new customer to DHC then you can buy this for half off, get 4 samples, and free shipping. That’s a total bargain and makes me wish I was new to DHC myself.
