Product: Miracle Oil (2 oz.) $21.64 USD

Review: With a name like Miracle Oil, who wouldn’t be excited to try this?! My skin was ready for a miracle!!

Lōa Skin Care’s Miracle Oil is said to be a remedy for Acne, Eczema, and Psoriasis and well as other inflammatory skin conditions including rosacea and aging skin.

“The secret behind Miracle Oil is its powerful activation of skin-enhancing phytochemicals, which nourishes and renews cells. We combine modern science with ancient teachings, and have gathered some of the most potent plants found all around the world – from the islands of Polynesia to the Peruvian Amazon, to create a superior healing formula.

Contained in what some call “liquid gold” is the careful infusion of antioxidant Camu Camu and Calendula, tissue-repairing Comfrey and Tamanu oil, anti-inflammatory Gotu Kola, anti-bacterial Tea Tree, and the acne-balancing oils of Evening Primrose and Chia.

The high ratio of omega-3 and 6 fatty acids in Miracle Oil is essential to the maintenance of healthy skin, as our epidermis (outer layer of skin) mainly consists of fats. These act as an arsenal against free radical and UV damage, helping to preserve the integrity of youthful skin.”

Ok, so it’s packed with tons of good-for-your-skin ingredients, but does it work?

My skin is normally very confused. It is dry and sensitive, other days it is oily and breaking out, and it has early signs of fine lines around my eyes. Like I said, my skin needs a miracle!

This oil is light with an herbal scent. I only need 2-3 drops to cover my entire face (this bottle is going to last for months!). While it massages in easily, I did find that it took awhile to soak in, so I opted to use this as a night serum.

I noticed that after a few days my skin was noticeably more hydrated and my super rosy cheeks seemed to be calmed. The dry areas of my skin definitely looked healthier and my complexion was clearer and more even, overall. I was quite pleased!

I even used this Miracle Oil on my dry, rough elbows and upper arm areas, and after just one use, it definitely improved my skin!

The Bottom Line

Lōa Skin Care’s Miracle Oil is impressive! Whether you are looking to hydrate your skin, fight breakouts, battle skin inflammation or even work on signs of aging, I suggest you give this a try! I have no doubt that whatever skin type or condition you have, this product will improve it. To make it even better, the price is very affordable considering the fact that you get 2 ounces of quality, non-GMO ingredients!

Head on over to their website to check out more information about their Miracle Oil, and let me know how you like it!

Thank you, Lōa Skin Care, for sending me this product to review! I’m a huge fan!

 

NW Beauty Works Reviews

Company: NWBeautyWorks

"Handmade, Vegan & Cruelty-Free!"

Products:

Daily Acne Cleanser

Cucumber & Cranberry Moisturizer

Warm Vanilla Sugar Lotion

Reviews:

Warm Vanilla Sugar Lotion contains Organic Shea Butter, Aloe Leaf Juice, Organic Coconut Oil, and Grapeseed Oil to hydrate even the driest skin (I would know!). To be honest, the skin on my feet gets so dry sometimes I can't even sleep at night, it's that uncomfortable! If a moisturizer can help my feet, it'll help anybody!

Within minutes of massaging this product into my skin, it was noticeably softer, smoother, and more comfortable. The sweet vanilla scent will leave a subtle scent behind, but it is not overpowering and will not compete with any other fragrances or products you are wearing.

Daily Acne Cleanser has a very strong fragrance of lemon and tea tree oil. It will definitely wake you up in the morning! Lemon is known to fade scars and brighten skin, while tea tree oil is known to kill bacteria to fight breakouts.

Cucumber & Cranberry Moisturizer is intended to be used all over the body without any greasiness. It's a very thin, gel consistency that smells primarily of cucumber. I'm not the biggest fan of cucumber in general, so I let my boyfriend try this one out! He used it and reported having softer, hydrated skin.

The Bottom Line

NW Beauty Works makes vegan, cruelty-free products that contain good for you ingredients without all of the chemicals and bad stuff. If you enjoy natural fragrances in products to moisturize and care for your skin, this brand is for you! Check out their website to learn more about their products and what they have to offer!

The Humane Cosmetics Act Re-Introduced to End Animal Testing In the U.S. – WorldAnimalNews.com

PLEASE sign the Care 2 Petition to support The Humane Cosmetics Act! Speak up for animals!

– Article from WorldAnimalNews.com

Representative Martha McSally (R-AZ) was joined by Representative Don Beyer (D-VA) earlier this week to re-introduce legislation designed to phase out and ultimately end the practice of testing the safety of cosmetics on animals in the United States.

The Humane Cosmetics Act would prohibit the selling or transporting of any cosmetics in interstate commerce if any component of the final product was developed or manufactured using animal testing, explained a Press Release that was issued on June 6th.

Care 2 is among those leading the charge for this bill, which unfortunately did not pass out of committee in the 113th and 114th Congress, to gain momentum in the 115th Congress.
The organization further explained that despite the fact that animal testing is not required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or the Product Safety Commission in the United States, many companies continue this inhuman and unnecessary practice.

More concerning, Care 2 stated that some products that are labeled as “not tested on animals” or “cruelty-free” may, at the ingredient level or at certain stages of development, have been tested on animals by other companies; making it even more confusing and frustrating for people who are trying to make compassionate choices.

While the exact number of animals who have been subjected to this abhorrent treatment is unknown because the Animal Welfare Act does not require that all laboratory animals used in the U.S. be reported, it is sadly estimated to be in the millions.

PETA

“The cruelty animals are subjected to during cosmetics testing is unacceptable; from lethal dose tests to irritation and force-feeding tests. Not only are these tests inhumane, but modern technology makes them unnecessary and overly expensive,” said Representative McSally. “The cosmetics industry is already using alternative cutting edge testing methods that are safer, cheaper, and don’t hurt animals. It’s time the United States join the ranks of over 30 other countries in the developed world to stand against this vile practice. The inhumane treatment of animals serves no place in our society.”

The European Union, Israel, Norway, Switzerland, and India are among the countries that have already implemented bans on animal testing and the sale of animal-tested cosmetics.

“Congress should permanently end the painful and unnecessary process of testing cosmetics on animals in this country,” stated Representative Beyer. “The cosmetics industry already has safer, more cost effective methods of testing that do not harm animals. American companies face no economic risk from this legislation, which would also show moral leadership.”

Currently, according to the release, 700 cosmetic brands in North America abstain from testing products or ingredients on animals, and instead use other affordable, proven methods of testing and innovate with thousands of ingredients already proven safe for human use.

The legislation has been endorsed by 195 companies in the cosmetic industry, and the Humane Cosmetics Act is supported strongly by Republican and Democrat co-sponsors.
TAKE ACTION!

Please show your support by signing and sharing the Care 2 petition urging Congress to pass the Humane Cosmetics Act.

Reviews:

This Green Tea Mint Bath Bomb has a light and minty herbal tea scent. The aroma transforms your bathroom into a 5-star spa and you’ll just want to stay in the tub all day! It leaves behind the subtlest scent of mint on your skin. Coconut oil does a great job moisturizing… I didn’t even need lotion afterward!

I was so excited to try this Cotton Candy Bath Bomb! This creates a dusty lavender hue in your bath water and leaves behind a subtle candy-like scent on your skin. Yum!

Who doesn’t love orange sherbet? The Citrus Swirl Bath Bomb smells exactly like the mouthwatering dessert and is the perfect way to energize and pamper yourself!

Welcome back the ’90’s with this Cucumber Melon Bath Bomb/foot soak! This little guy instantly transported me back to my days in 8th grade when I wore Bath and Body Works’ Cucumber Melon Body Spray just about every day! Unfortunately, I was a little too excited when I was unwrapping this and broke it apart. That didn’t affect how it worked though! My bath water was transformed into a gorgeous mint green color and the classic fruity scent made this truly a treat to use!

These aren’t just ordinary bath salts… these are Grapefruit Mint Soaking Salts! The mix of Epsom and Pink Himalayan Salts detox and release tension from tired muscles as cocoa butter and coconut oil soften your skin. The vibrant grapefruit scent makes for a deliciously refreshing bath!

The Bottom Line

These are great products from a great person (I urge you to go to her website and read her story). These products are cute as heck, smell fantastic, get the job done, and are of course, vegan and cruelty-free!
