Skin care is the most important ritual that I followed religiously twice a day all throughout the year non-stop and it really paid off well leaving my skin extremely supple and having a healthily balanced skin at the same time. Meanwhile, I would sincerely recommend anyone to invest in some good skin care essentials as it is such a game changer.

First of all, let me start with Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant which is such a real multi-tasker that one should have. Whether as a face mask or in-flight moisturiser, this is one miracle product that acts a skin barrier that can be used for all kinds of season.

My Luxury Spring Skincare Must-Haves.

With sun is shining gloriously outside, today I will be showcasing some of the best luxe skincare products that I’m completely relying on at the moment. To be honest, I tend to use more kind of light weighted products during Spring as my body could cope up well with seasonal changes and weather conditions and Spring is the quintessential time where your beauty wardrobe needs some tender loving care; plus, this is the time of the year where you could ideally able to introduce some of the natural based products into your daily skincare beauty regime. So, let me get straight into the product drop down list right away and hence, stay tuned!

If you are blessed with baby soft skin, then I guess you really stand up well ahead in the skincare game or otherwise, try to follow some natural skin detox routines like me which could ideally bring some healthy benefits to your skin. Generally, I follow two detox routines that are named as:

Skin Detox By Fitness:

I love to go for walking everyday and if weather doesn’t permit, then I swap to my regular yoga regime. And, I’m a firm believer of fitness routines and it really helps to detox your skin inside and out in a natural way and there is no harm in practicing it regularly. So, what kind of fitness routine do you follow? Is it jogging, trekking, swimming, sports or something else? Yes, it certainly takes some time to show up the results but you will be rewarded and paid off well for sure with the worth of effort that you take.

Skin Detox Drink:

I always start my day with honey and lemon in warm water and recently, I’ve heard that lemon water is good for white part of your eye and hence, why not give it a try then?

Review: OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

21jul151

Today, I am doing an honest review on my blog regarding a product named OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum* that is kindly sent by OZ Naturals through BrandBacker and I am absolutely quite honoured to do a trial run for their amazing product as well. Basically, hyaluronic acid is a substance that is inbuilt in our body by birth but it starts to deteriorate chronologically and hence, to keep up the content going in our body, it is essential for us to include this content in our daily part of beauty routine to give a younger looking youthful skin. Besides, hyaluronic acid is quintessential to give a long-lasting essential hydration back to our skin too. In addition, it is also been used in Korean beauty regime as daily essentials for years and years by now and it is also followed and well celebrated by important celebrities to A-listers and hence, with immense popularity among the fashionable beauty contenders, let me guide you through some more evidential benefits of using Hyaluronic Acid Serum at its best.

21jul152

Nutritional components:

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic acid serum is packed with all sources of natural goodness that are 100% Vegan and cruelty-free. Plus, even though, this product includes 5% of Hyaluronic acid, which is perfect for moisturising your skin on its own but also, this product characterises other vital ingredients as well. Plus, this bottled liquid gold is made out of 72% organic ingredients and hence, one could able to take up the challenge to use this product without any reason for a second thought as it is full of wholesome goodness from some of the plant-based ingredients such as:

  • Organic Aloe (It has a natural source of cooling properties)
  • Witch Hazel
  • Kosher Vegetable Glycerin
  • Organic Jojoba Oil (It is rich with conditioning and moisturising properties)
  • Wildcrafted Green Tea (It has an amazing characteristics of anti-oxidant features)

21jul153

Moreover, this enriched product also contains two additional essentials including:

  1. Vitamin C – which is ideal to give a great source of antioxidant that can give your skin an immense protection and also, it acts as a shield to your skin to fight against damaging free radicals.
  2. Vitamin E – which can keep your skin away from aging and can give a long-lasting youthful effect to your skin and also, this essential vitamin leaves your skin with silky soft baby skin each time after application.

21jul155

As a moisturiser onto your skin:

There are so many valuable reasons that you can try this product as blind-folded and some of the main facts are:

  1. As hyaluronic acid has important attribute of withholding moisture content, this product serves exemplarily well as a moisturiser and it is also ideal to leave your skin plumped up supple all day throughout.
  2. This thirst quenching product drinks up all day goodness of moisture and it doesn’t leave your skin dull at all.
  3. Along with hyaluronic acid, this product also has aloe, glycerin, green tea and jojoba oil that are supreme to assist in balancing skin moisture levels at all times.
  4. As it has imminent qualities of anti aging contents that is great to stimulate collagen onto your skin which also serves as an ultimate in diminishing surface lines and wrinkles on your skin.

21jul156

All about the product:

The product is packed with simple to perfection for easy handling and when you try to open the outer white and green carton packaging, there comes the liquid bottle which has a resourceful moisturising gel like serum that comes along with a versatile black dispensing pincher to the top that is also sealed with a plastic outer wrap and I think that the idea of using pincher is a sensible option since trying out the moisturising goodness all in ration without spilling any drop is a must too. So, when you unwrap the plastic seal, then it is all yours to use the powerful moisturising serum onto your skin right away.

21jul157

How to apply?

  1. Start the procedure with the freshly washed and cleaned face.
  2. Optional: If you using a good quality toner, then use it.
  3. Apply a thin layer of this serum onto the desired area by starting a little onto your face first and move along to spread it all over the face to see the visible results.
  4. Wait until the serum gets dried up and you could also see how quickly the serum gets absorbs onto your skin immediately right after.
  5. Now, apply your usual moisturiser and you could also see the serum helps to enhance the moisturising levels onto your skin as well.
  6. Then, you can carry on with the regular makeup to complete the beauty routine.

Review:

To be honest, I have a dry skin (it is also ideal to use it on all skin types) and I tried this product continuously for the past five days and the matter of glowing looking healthy skin is a valuable result that I could able to see visually by the end of the day and even though, five days is not enough to come under any conclusion but I should say the highest factor of trying a moisturising serum under vulnerable hot and humid conditions that too in radiant summer times means a lot and it is a valid point too and I am proud enough to say that this product has accomplished its mission successfully by withstanding under high temperatures and hence, I would sincerely recommend to anyone who is willing to look for a professional moisturising serum that might include in their regular beauty regime.

Things that can be improved: 

This product is readily available onto the online web market but it would sound even better if this product is available on the high street shops and drugstore.

My skin loves this product and if you want to try out this incredibly good OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum onto your skin, then you could also go on to Amazon.com here to try out.
