Everyone knows that Vitamin C is good for your body and your health. And just about everybody knows that Vitamin C has superb, antioxidant properties that are excellent to combat damaged skin and keep skin looking younger, longer. But you might not know that Vitamin C may also help you to prevent sunburn caused by exposure to ultraviolet B radiation, and can help parry the blows to your skin of just being exposed to the sun’s rays on a daily basis, too.
Elizabeth Grant has an excellent, impressive, and totally cute, 6-piece set of skincare must-haves that all contain Vitamin C. Actually, it’s a 7-piece set if you include the eye-catching black and white zebra-striped, zippered makeup bag, bursting with shiny, bright yellow accents! The bag is so cheerful and cute, it will find it’s way into your suitcase even if you have to remove all the products and put them in a regulation, quart baggie, first! The products are great and the set is extra nice, because the products are travel-sized, none over 2 ounces. If you fly, you can tuck these pieces into your carry-on bag and not worry that the TSA will take them away. But the items are nicely sized so there is more than enough for a week, or a couple of weekends, away.
The kit contains: Kit Contains: 25ml All Day Cream, 10ml Concentrated Serum, 5ml Eye Radiance, 60ml Hydrating Cleanser, 60ml Body Cream, 60ml Body Scrub. All arrive in bright yellow tubes, the larger products with flip-top caps. The Advice Sisters have reviewed a lot of Elizabeth Grant products in the past, and we have always given them high marks.
Back in 2008 The Advice Sisters started our love affair with Elizabeth Grant, with an initial review of some the products in the Vitamin C line. In that review, we also shared what makes Elizabeth Grant products so very special: Elizabeth grant started her own skin care treatment line to share the secret formulation she had created, called: “Torricelumn™” The star ingredient is kelp: extracted from the fronds and hidden within the pods that keep the clusters of fronds afloat. These pods lift the leaf-like fronds to the ocean’s surface, allowing them to absorb sunlight, photosynthesizing oxygen, the source of life and energy. The seawater absorbed by kelp is similar to human plasma, allowing beauty buffs using Elizabeth Grant products to obtain beauty benefits of the sea’s vitamins and minerals, too. When you use these products you immediately note that they are lightweight and absorb quickly. They also have a very light scent. And you’ll feel that your skin is instantly smoother, softer, and hydrated skin. The Vitamin C is a big plus, and once you try these you will want to take them with you when you travel (so this 7-piece kit is a must-have).
Here are more details of what you get inside the zippered makeup bag:
VITAMIN C HYDRA-MOIST HYDRATING CLEANSER: a gentle, foamy, sodium lauryl sulphate free cleanser that works into a rich lather, lifting away debris, pollutants, impurities and makeup leaving the skin feeling fresh. All you need is a small amount, worked over the entire face, then rinsed off with warm water.
VITAMIN C HYDRA-MOIST CONCENTRATED SERUM: Stabilized Vitamin C helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and age spots, and it contains Torricelumn™. The stabilized form of high dosage Vitamin C, makes this serum a great way to start your anti-aging treatment.
VITAMIN C HYDRA-MOIST ALL DAY CREAM: I love this product, focusing on correcting the first signs of aging. An infusion of Vitamin C helps to smooth out skin and minimize the onset of the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
VITAMIN C HYDRA-MOIST EYE RADIANCE: Your eyes need TLC, too. This anti-wrinkle eye cream with Vitamin C helps to avoid the onset of, and reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. It is very hydrating, and contains Emlica from the Indian Gooseberry tree, reputed to have the highest content of Vitamin C of any natural plant. De-puff and revitalize your eyes by massaging a bit of this into your eyes, twice a day.
VITAMIN C HYDRA-MOIST BODY CREAM: Another one of my personal favorites, this super-hydrating body lotion is rich in encapsulated Vitamin C, and releases a fresh burst of Vitamin C onto the skin each time it is applied. It’s pretty amazing, but if you use this after your bath or shower your skin will immediately feel like it’s had a day at the spa!
VITAMIN C HYDRA-MOIST BODY SCRUB: If you’re going to exfoliate your skin, why not do it with a product that smells richly of orange so it’s more fun?! You only need a small amount of make your skin feel smoother and prepare it for other products, including self-tanners.
Vitamin C has so many other purported benefits, I can’t even list them all. But the bottom line is that this kit is chock-full of beauty benefits for every part of your body. The best news? While Elizabeth Grant products are not inexpensive, this entire kit can be yours for just $59.00! It’s a great way to try out the line, too. Check it out at www.elizabethgrant.com
