Ever since I’ve been using the Oil Cleansing Method to wash my face, I’ve stopped using commercial facial cleansers. I love the oil cleansing method and recommend it to everyone, so it’s no secret that I’m definitely not in the market for any facial cleansers or skincare products.
However, one of the most common questions I do receive on the OCM post has to do with what type of facial cleanser I recommend to use for the nights that you don’t use OCM. Until now, I didn’t really have a straightforward answer; I just sort of pushed in the direction of an all natural cleanser, but never had a brand to really stand behind.
When Annmarie Gianni Skin Care contacted me to try out some of their products, to be honest, I was a bit hesitant at first. Here’s a company which makes skin care products that promise to tackle various skin conditions. How could I honestly review these products knowing that I’ve already posted about using homemade methods to do the same thing? But the more I looked into their company, the more I realized just how awesome their products really are.
What if I told you there’s an all-natural, organic, wild-crafted skin care line that really uses natural ingredients – ingredients that you and I can actually pronounce and have most likely heard of before? Yep, Annmarie Gianni Skin Care is it! I’ve read the ingredient list of every single product on their website and I can assure you that they truly are all natural!
Annmarie Gianni, an author and health advocate, started Annmarie Gianni Skin Care after becoming frustrated with the lack of truly natural skin care products on the market (sound familiar?). She carries a wide line of products ranging from cleansers and scrubs to moisturizers and masks. They contain no artificial ingredients or preservatives, and all ingredients are clearly listed on each package.
Annmarie Gianni Skin Care Review
For this review, Annmarie Gianni sent me a facial care sample set and a full size coconut body oil. The sample set contains one small sample each of citrus mint facial cleanser, aloe-herb cleanser, coconut honey mask, coconut body oil, rosemary toning mist, neroli toning mist, anti-aging serum, and anti-aging facial oil. The coconut body oil is meant to be used an all-over moisturizer and massage oil.
I still can’t believe how truly natural these products are. The first ingredient listed on each product is “love” – how awesome is that?! 🙂 Each product has a specific purpose and is made for a certain skin type; oily, normal, or aging skin. They smell absolutely wonderful and feel great on the skin. The facial cleansers wash off clean, without leaving the skin feeling dry or tight afterwards. The toning mists are so light and refreshing, and the anti-aging serum and oil really leave the skin feeling soft and smooth.
My absolute favorite sample was the coconut honey mask. This stuff smells so yummy, I just want to eat it. Actually, I did eat it! That’s how natural this stuff is – I took a tiny bit on my finger and just ate it straight. So delicious! This mask leaves the skin so smooth and silky afterwards, I absolutely love it.
My other favorite product is the coconut body oil (pictured at the top of this post). I use this oil every single day. It’s best when applied on damp skin, right out of the shower, and leaves your entire body feeling so soft and hydrated the entire day. It’s great especially for those extra dry areas, like the elbows, knees, and ankles, and I’ve also been using it on my new baby bump to help soothe the dry, itchy skin on my belly! Like all the other products, the body oil also smells wonderful; it’s almost like an all-over body perfume. And I don’t wear perfumes, so it’s actually very nice!
What do I love most about Annmarie Gianni skin care products? Well, besides their 100% all-natural ingredients and their super yummy scents, I really love that all of their products are packaged in glass containers. They specifically use Miron Violet Glass, which has been shown to preserve and protect natural ingredients for longer. Plastics can leech into products, especially those with highly potent ingredients like essential oils, so I’m very happy to see that AnnMarie Gianni’s products are only packaged in high quality glass – even their sample sizes! Not only that, but it makes their containers completely reusable too! And you know me and my slight obsession with repurposing old containers. 😉
