2) bkr 500ml Glass Bottle + Silicone Sleeve ($30 US) – I am so in love with this reusable glass water bottle. Glass bottles have always made me feel uncomfortable because I always worry they can break. The silicone sleeves on the bkr bottles make the bottles so comfortable to hold and resistant to breaking. The 1″ opening is the perfect size. They are super cute and come in a huge assortment of colours. I just love everything about these. They also have amazing customer service and replacement policy if you break one. I dropped mine getting out of the car and got a chip in the bottom and they replaced it for me for free. I just had to pay shipping.

5) Live Clean Age Resist Hair Care Line - I am in love with this new hair care line from Live Clean. It gives you the silkiest, shiniest hair without the buildup associated with silicones thanks to their natural alternative to silicone. I wish I had discovered this prior to cutting my hair off because I think I could have finally sported wavy hair without it looking like a frizzy mess!

6) EcoTools Pure Complexion Sensitive Skin Facial Sponge ($11.99 CAD) and 7) Skin Perfecting Brush ($9.99 CAD) – this new vegetable fibre sponge cleanses with 100% natural ingredients and is fragrance-free and colorant free (not to mention really cool looking and feeling).

Introduction to the RejuvaSea Skincare Collection

As a Pretty in my Pocket Expert Blogger, I sometimes receive product samples from their brand partners. PRIMP’s newest brand partner is RejuvaSea! You can access all my product reviews and recommendations including RejuvaSea right on the Pretty in my Pocket app.

RejuvaSea_PRIMP-2

If you haven’t heard me talk about PRIMP before let me give you a brief recap on the service. Pretty in my Pocket (PRIMP), is a mobile beauty shopping companion that makes shopping for beauty products fun again! With honest reviews you can trust, this pocket pal guides you through the overwhelming array of products in the beauty aisle. PRIMP combines drugstore to department store product ratings, reviews, looks, and swatches with in-store purchase incentives called Perks and is available for FREE on iPhone & Android.

Now lets talk about RejuvaSea! Welcome to the destination for beautiful skin, the waters of Veta la Palma. Located in southern Spain, Veta la Palma is one of the largest, most important sustainable sanctuaries in the world. With exclusive access to the sanctuary, the scientists at RéjuvaSea Skincare Labs began to examine the marine life of Veta la Palma to better understand the powerful draw of its waters.

After years of research and study, their scientists were able to isolate what is believed to be the world’s most potent strain of marine phytoplankton. This breakthrough in marine science led to the discovery of our proprietary antioxidant, RéjuvaPlankton. Laboratory studies found our powerful, ocean-based antioxidant to have extraordinary benefits for the skin, including stimulating collagen production, increasing mitochondrial metabolism (crucial to healthy skin cells), and inhibiting melanin secretion (reducing the effects of hyperpigmentation which allows for more even skin tones). In order to preserve the natural resources of Veta la Palma, our scientists replicated this nutrient-rich ecosystem at our research and development facility and designed an innovative method for sustainable harvesting of RéjuvaPlankton. With an advanced extraction process, our skincare specialists have developed products with better efficacy, increased absorption and higher concentrations of proprietary RéjuvaPlankton® than ever before.

The products are available individually as well as in these kits:

M. Steves Reviving Exfoliator and Ultra-Nourishing Boost Review

M Steves1

The M. Steves Skincare line is a streamlined collection of skincare products revolving around the rejuvenating properties of pure, cold-pressed Chilean Rose Hip Seed Oil (RHSO). Creator Mally Steves Chakola has created the line to be full of  high impact natural actives for optimal skin care benefits. The line came to be after Mally, who loved the velvety texture of RHSO when adding it to her moisturizer during her nighttime routine, noticed a dramatic improvement in the size and colour of a scar she had after wiping the excess moisturizer cocktail on her leg after a couple of week. She was blown away by the results and started to research the power of RHSO only to learn about its amazing skin rejuvenating and anti-aging properties. What makes RHSO so special?

Unsaturated essential fatty acids: Linolenic, Linoleic & Oleic Acids (Omegas 3, 6 and 9) Contributing factors to the highly moisturizing and soothing properties of the oil, these essential fatty acids are able to penetrate the skin’s top layer to aid in nourishing the cells and creating a moisture barrier without greasiness, leaving behind the most luxurious, velvety finish.

Antioxidants Nutrients and enzymes that “mop up” free radicals to help prevent and repair damage to the body’s tissue.

M Steves2

I have been testing out two of the five products in the lineup over the last month or so. The RHSO Power-Packed Reviver Exfoliator Triple-Action Skin Resurfacer ($48 US) and the RHSO Power-Packed Ultra-Nourishing Boost Concentrated Rose Hip Seed Oil Skin Booster ($64 US). The packaging presentation is beautiful. It really makes you feel like you are about to do something special for your skin.

M Steves3

The Ultra-Nourishing Boost is basically a Rose Hip Seed Oil facial oil. It is a standard oil formula as opposed to a dry oil but it still absorbs well into the my skin. It includes a naturally-derived extract called GATULINE® IN-TENSE, proven to make skin look of firmer, works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. I adore facial oils and this one is certainly an exquisite offering. Ingredients: Rosa Canina (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Spilanthes Acmella Flower Extract, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, BHT.
