As I’ve mentioned a few times already here on the blog, I’m gradually replacing the chemical-laden products in my home with all-natural versions. It’s been a gradual process because my goal is to adopt these changes permanently in my home for the long-term health and wellness of my family.
Making Products With Essential Oils
You’ll notice that I stick with one essential oil for each of them. That’s because I have had little success combining different oils to get the right scent.
One scent ends up overpowering another and in my effort to balance them, I end up using a LOT of essential oil. And if you use essential oils, you know how expensive that can be!
Trusted Healthy Products Amazingly Beautiful
So, when Trusted Health Products asked me to try their Amazingly Beautiful AM/PM set, I enthusiastically agreed. Like homemade beauty products, Amazingly Beautiful is made from 100% pure and natural ingredients (fruit, nut, and plant oils).
These products contain NO chemicals, preservatives, parabens, petrochemicals, synthetic ingredients, colorings, fragrances, GMOs, alcohol, dyes or additives of any kind. Plus, the oils are cold-pressed meaning that the nutrients within them are not cooked away.
The set includes an AM moisturizer and PM revitalizer. Together, they clean, hydrate, moisturize and protect your skin. Since I have combination skin, I was worried it either wouldn’t hydrate my dry spots well enough or would be too oily for my oily zones, but since the product is promoted for “all skin types,” I decided to give it a try and hope for the best.
The reason Amazingly Beautiful works for all skin types is that the combination of oils cleans away dirt and bacteria naturally while replacing “dirty oil” with beneficial oil. These beneficial oils help your skin’s chemistry achieve a natural balance.
The Label Is Personalized
So that you know the set is just for YOU, they personalize the label with your name when they send it to you. I was tickled every time I went to apply the oils because it was like a mini pep talk. “Well, hello there, Amazingly Beautiful Corinne.” “Why thank you! I am feeling pretty lovely today!”
The Smell Is Amazing
My VERY favorite feature of this set was the smell. The AM moisturizer contains almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive oil and it smells amazing.
The pleasing aroma is such a pleasant way to start the day. The PM revitalizer smells just as good, though it has a different scent.
It is made with almond, orange, lemon, evening primrose, and apricot. The resulting aroma always helped me feel peaceful at the end of the day. Plus, I just LOVED that I smelled so good all day and all night!
How To Apply Amazingly Beautiful
The directions called for me to place 2-3 drops on each cheek, then gently spread over my entire face and neck with my middle finger moving in a circular motion. The directions plainly state that I should not “rub in” the product.
This was a challenge for me at first because I’m used to rubbing in my facial cleanser and moisturizer. Also, for the first couple of weeks, I needed a lot more than 2-3 drops!
My skin absorbed the 2-3 drops almost immediately and there was very little left for me to distribute over the rest of my face. Apparently, my skin was starved for moisture.
Noticed Some Improvement In My Skin
My first noticeable sign of improvement occurred late during week 3 when I was finally able to make 3 drops on each cheek work for my entire face and neck. I think my using a face scrub once a week was an important part of this process too.
One of the product claims is that it reduces the appearance of aging (e.g. fine lines and wrinkles) and minimizes the appearance of pores. After four weeks of use, I didn’t discern any noticeable difference in these areas.
At 44, fine lines are a part of life for me. And large pores have been my skincare bane since I was a teen.
So, I would have been delightfully surprised if Amazingly Beautiful had been able to deliver on these claims, but I wasn’t surprised that it didn’t miraculously solve these problems that nothing else I’ve tried has been able to solve either.
I DID notice that my typically oily nose was no longer shiny after a month of using the AM/PM set. That was a small miracle since I’ve had that shine ever since I hit puberty.
Also, though I don’t look in the mirror and think, “Wow! I look radiant!” there definitely is something more lively about my skin tone. I think the best way to describe it is to say that my skin before was dull and now it’s not dull.
And, as promised, my skin is now balanced. If I had to describe my skin type now, I would say normal. I don’t have oily patches OR dry patches.
So, if you are looking for an all-natural beauty regimen without having to make your own products, this set is a great choice. The set costs $44 for both bottles and it should last you 2-3 months. Plus, a small portion of each sale goes to RefugeForWomen.org so in taking care of yourself, you’ll also be helping others.
