As most of you already know...I love samples! As mentioned in previous posts (instagram), I love trying new and different skincares and products. Because: 1. I get bored of one skincare for too long 2. I love trying different products, to be able to give feedback and 3. I don't want to be buying something, hating it and being stuck with it (hate returns!). I love stores like Sephora, Naimies and Ulta because I feel these stores aren't committed to selling you one product line only, just to sell. Because they carry different brands, the employees are very knowledgeable and are able to advise you into the direction your skin needs and not just a sale. Anywho - so at my last visit at Sephora (Sherman Oaks), a very educated girl, helped me pick out some skincare. I have to say, I LOVE everything she has given me...which is horrible right?? ($$$) lol...but seriously, skincare is worth every penny! If your skin looks good, the less makeup you need on a daily basis and the younger you will stay. One of the product samples she had given me was called Apivita. I had never heard of this product before but Stephanie swore by it and promised I would love it. And of course, I did. I've had a few clients lately who have been educating me about natural skincare vs. parabens, chemicals, toxins, etc. and I have completely shifted my perspective on skincare since. Stephanie was also a true believer in natural skincare and explained a bit about what Apivita was about. Apivita was created in Greece and is made from Greek plant extracts, high biological bee products and contains 100% natural oils. I loved the few samples she gave me and I am tempted to try their whole line. I purchased the Deep Cleansing Mask with green clay for myself. Who doesn't need a deep cleansing mask considering the amount of makeup we wear on a daily basis? I also chose this because it is for oily/combination ski. They have other masks which you would need to look into and see what works for you of course. I also got the eye mask with Ginkgo Biloba for dark circles and eye-puffiness. I honestly haven't seen any eye masks (in a cream form), so I was excited to see this. Eye care is SO important! Your face cream should not replace your eye cream because your eye-area is so much more sensitive than your face and needs that extra attention. I've been using Apivita for 2 weeks now and I am obsessed to the point where I want mask-up every day! They come in little express packages which you can open and throw away after one or two uses. I love this because I am not a fan of sticking my fingers into a jar and using it over a few weeks time...germs are bound to get in there! In addition, I am SUPER impressed by their website/blog. It is thorough, interesting and organized! Check them out at www.Apivita.com. You can read about all their ingredients and products. If you give any of their products a shot, I'd love your feedback. Hope you enjoyed this post!
