Like many of us, Annmarie Gianni was disgusted by the ingredients she realized were in her skin care regimen. Like many of us wished we had, Annmarie did something about it. She started her own line of organic and natural products.
Personally, I have to be very picky about what goes on my face. My skin is quite sensitive and if I use the wrong product it resorts to that of a hormonal teenager. So, the first thing that I like about Annemarie’s products is that they are simple. My general rule is the fewer ingredients the better. That goes for meals and cosmetics.
My favorite product I’ve tried from her line is, hands down, the Ayurvedic Facial Scrub. It is a mixture of herbs and clay that can be added to the Aloe-Herb cleanser several times a week, leaving your skin incredibly soft and vibrant. I love the DIY aspect of this scrub; you add a teaspoon or so to the cleanser then mix it with a bit of water. It’s nice being able to control the amount of exfoliant you’re comfortable with and what’s right for your particular skin. The rest of the week the Aloe-Herb cleanser does the trick on its own and smells subtly like morning dew.
The product line includes an array of different herbal concoctions for face and body and for every skin type. With wild-crafted, organic ingredients such as coconut oil, neroli hydrosol (from orange blossoms), and even Dead Sea mud there is surly something for even the most temperamental skin! Not sure what would suit your skin best? Annmarie offers product sample kits that typically last a week for just $10 a pop – including free shipping! Her wonderful website includes pointers for all skin types, including a detailed brochure for getting started with your samples.
Annmarie Gianni products are available at several brick and mortar locations worldwide and also from her website. All products except for samples are 20% off through November 30th! Know some one special who would love this in their stocking? Check out the holiday gift sets while you’re there!
For the person on the go, she also offers travel kits, starting at $24.95 with an awesome variety of conveniently sized products that can ride in your carry-on and keep you fresh on your journey. I love these options, as I like to try them all, but I don’t want to commit to a full sized product until I see results!
