Review: AnnMarie Gianni Skincare: Repair Serum

image

I have worked with AnnMarie Skin Care before, and thoroughly enjoyed the simplicity yet great results of every single product they make. Everything is 100% all natural and works extremely well.image

So when they sent me the AnnMarie Gianni Repair Serum, I was dying to try it. I’ve been tanning almost daily since January—and sweating inside the tanning bed (not to mention the UV exposure) was breaking me out and damaging my skin.

The repair serum is meant to repair and replenish sun damaged and mature skin., I’m  not even 25 yet, but I already have sun-damage due to my “obsession” and love for tanning.

Not only that- but all the stress, sleepless nights, and emotions from having a very premature son (16 weeks early). The difficulties surrounding his birth sent my emotions in overdrive. Then just a short year later—finding out I was pregnant again (not planned) and thinking I was probably going to go through the premature thing YET again. I didn’t though (thank GOD).

I’ve always had really huge pores on my nose, and in those giant pores come TONS of hard to get blackheads. So for years I spent a TON of time and money buying strong concealers and foundations to cover the blackheads and “under-eye” bags.

I ended up receiving a travel-sized sample of the Repair serum and ended up making it last almost 3 weeks (20 days). It is recommended 30-40 days to see a real improvement because your cells have to turn-over and replenish themselves.. but just in those 20 days I could see a huge difference in texture and tone of my skin.

Although I wash my face daily, use blemish fighting cream, toners, and all that good stuff—the bumps (NOT totally blemishes) would appear at the base of my jawline and run up to my earlobes. With the repair serum, they seem to be kept at bay (which I LOVE).

I bet the entire 40 days would have my skin looking QUITE amazing, if I do say so myself. There are many, MANY anti-aging products being pushed into our faces—making us think that we need to goop on a ton of chemicals to erase the lines, wrinkles, and sun damage—and it just isn’t true,

If you look at the ingredient list on most of those packages, you’ll see tons of ingredients that you CAN’T even spell. The fancy packaging isn’t fooling anybody! Chemicals in skin, body, and hair care SEEP into your skin and hair follicles and can actually DAMAGE you more than it helps.

AnnMarie KNOWS this and that’s why she uses nothing but natural ingredients in her skin care line. I SO love her AND the entire skincare line for that!

This Repairing Serum is an orange/yellow colored liquid that soaks right into the skin. I use it after I’ve cleaned and toned my skin for the night, and only have to use a very small amount.  It is very moisturizing- my skin is still silky soft when I wake up the next morning.

I love that it helped revitalize and replenish my sun damaged skin without leaving an oily residue. The smell of the serum is very pleasant—smells like hints of flowers, with a stronger smell of Jasmine than any other.. DOES smell wonderful and natural! Winking smile

The price of the products are a little steep, but you’re getting nothing but completely ORGANIC, natural ingredients so I understand the pricing—natural products are more expensive to buy, but totally worth it.

The Ingredients:

Love, Aloe vera juice; Uva Ursi (and) Licorice root (and) Amla berry extract; Citrus-derived Stem Cells; Jojoba oil; Castor oil; Vegetable glycerin; Helichrysum extract; Aspen bark extract; Rosehip seed oil extract; Rosehip oil extract; Seabuckthorn berry oil extract; Essential oils of Lavender, Sandalwood; Superoxide dismutase; Hyaluronic acid; Xanthan gum; Rosemary oleoresin.
