Bliss Kiss Simply Pure Cuticle & Nail Oil Starter Kit – Crisp – Better Than OPI Avoplex

What it is: A blend of Jojoba wax ester (more than you’ll find in any other nail product on the market!), olive and grape seed oils, vitamins, and scented oils designed to penetrate your nails and skin while filling your nostrils with a divine scent! What it does: Because Jojoba is almost molecularly identical to our body’s natural “oils” Pure Nail Oil penetrates your nails, keeping them strong and flexible. The Jojoba also penetrates your skin, keeping it soft and healthy. Why you need it: Hard, brittle nails break. Strong nails are flexible and bend against outside forces. Pure gives your nails what they need to flex so they break less. Your nails will be longer and stronger! Plus, Pure is the only nail and cuticle oil that works by repairing brittle, chipping, and peeling nails in 3 days (when following the Initial 3-Day Hydration Treatment), eliminating hangnails within 5 days, and visibly reducing skin wrinkling. Crisp Starter Kit: Our Starter Kit is just what you need when you are getting started with our nail oil. During the 3-Day Initial Hydration Treatment your nails and cuticles absorb A LOT of oil while they are getting back into balance. Our Starter Kit comes with one 2ml Nail Oil Pen and one 15ml Nail Oil Bottle so you will have plenty of oil to get your nails in balance. Our Crisp scent is an intoxicating and effervescent blend of lemon zest, pink grapefruit, juicy pomegranate and spiced vanilla. We’re pleased to be able to say that Crisp has a 100% LOVE rate among hundreds of customers.

A Real Nail Saver!

I’ve spent the last few months using a jojoba based oil I made myself but wasn’t getting quite the results I was looking for. I’d seen Pure Oil many times on other blogs that I follow but didn’t decide to take the plunge myself until recently.I received my starter kit last Friday, well ahead of the first estimated deliver date, and started right away. My 3 day challenge ended about noon today but I forgot to take the after pic before I put on polish. I can say, however, that I am a customer for life. I saw immediate improvement with the first application. The oil just soaked into the dry patches and made my cuticles feel soft and moisturized. by the end of the day, I felt like I was constantly oiling but that’s just how dehydrated my nails were. By today, I was oiling a lot less but my nails still looked well hydrated, even after exposure to water.The pen is easy to use. Just click the non-brush end several times and you’re good to go. Really makes it easy to apply the oil on the go. I tend to apply more of it when using the bottle but no worries. the oil works great on the rest of my hands, too.I had intended on ordering the fragrance free but apparently failed to make that choice when I placed the order. No worries there, either. The Crisp scent is wonderful and doesn’t irritate the scent-sensitive people in my life, which includes me.If you’ve got problem nails and nothing else has worked, give this oil a try. Seriously. My results after only 3 days makes the cost so worth it.

The BEST oil ever!!!

I’ve been using this oil for a little over a year. I’m so glad I got introduced to it. My cuticles are healthy and supple, I haven’t had hangnails in forever, and my nails are strong and flexible!!! I’ve even gotten my husband and daughter to use it. It has worked wonders for my daughter and her excessively dry hands. Another plus is the smell!! Crisp smells amazing, you will catch yourself smelling your fingers. Excellent product!!

Doesn’t work for me.

I read everyone’s reviews before I purchased this balm. It seemed perfect for what I need. When I received it, the box said I would see results in five minutes. Well, I’ve been using it for a week and I haven’t seen any change. Maybe my hands and cuticles are extra dry??? I’m going to keep using it to see if it gets better. I don’t want to bother returning it. Glad it’s worked so well for so many others, though.

Smells nice, works meh

I like the scent of this product, it smells like beeswax, honey, and baby powder. it’s a little greasy, meaning it doesn’t soak in very quickly.My biggest problem with this cuticle cream, is that it doesn’t seem to work. I’ve been using it for awhile now and my cuticles are still dry and cracked, I would use it more often, but the greasiness becomes an issue then, I don’t want cuticle cream all over my phone, remotes, or laptop.Instead of buying this again, I think I’m going to try Burts Bee’s or stick with coconut oil like I was using before.

Works!

If I use this faithfully every day, usually at bedtime my cuticles are very healthy. It sure makes a difference if you go a few days without using it. I will definitely re-purchase this. Have used other brands and this is the best yet.

Middle Age Acne

Update** I am still using this. I have had only one zit, above my eyebrow, and that was from the threading which causes surface pimples sometimes. I don’t know if this helped in healing, but it went away pretty quickly — of course it was just a little one so I don’t think it would have lasted long either way. But this has seemingly kept me to zero hormonal acne breakouts since I started using it.PREVIOUS REVIEW:I am 44. I expected some wrinkles, right? They’re proof of the smiles, right? (I just threw up in my mouth). But hormonal acne? I did not expect to be requesting a senior discount on Clearasil. As with most of life’s cruel jokes, everything hits you around midlife.I started using this because I had heard that it is the latest and greatest for wrinkles (the new coconut oil I read somewhere) Although I remember seeing this as a supplement in my grandmother’s medicine cabinet. She was a hot granny, so I gave it a shot. The smell took me back a bit. I’ve also used Tamanu and Sea Buckthorn seed oils. This has a similar earthy, dark scent….but not as pungent. I guess I was expecting roses. It isn’t an overwhelming smell, but it isn’t roses. I’m considering experimenting with mixing some of these oils, along with argan oil, to full on fight aging until I turn back into a fetus.Anyway, I’ve been using this alone for several days and here is what I can share so far: First, I was pleased that while it goes on oily (it is oil after all) it absorbs rather quickly. So I’m not a grease slick in the morning and there aren’t stains on my sheets. Second, and maybe most happily surprising, I completely dodged the monthly hormonal breakout I’ve been fighting for the past year or so. It was actually conspicuous by its absence. (Unfortunately for my loved ones, they couldn’t say the same of me for a few days)I did some reading.My research immediately returned a boatload of information about rosehip seed oil being a really great treatment for adult, hormonal acne. Go figure. I’ve often joked that I apply my old lady cream with my left hand and my teenage zit cream with my right. Apparently, cold pressed, virgin, unrefined rosehip seed oil contains retinoids. So, much like the synthetic Retin A I used to use to fight wrinkles and acne, this is a natural pre-retinol. How cool is that? I had to stop using Retin A because I would walk around bright red, shining-stretched skin, shedding like a lizard. I figured wrinkles were better than that. This is a much milder, natural way of stimulating and turning over new skin cells without looking like someone turtle waxed your face and without using synthetic vitamins to do it.I’m only a few days into this, so I will update as soon as I get an invitation to the junior prom. But for now, I am happy that I am fighting wrinkles and not missing the acne, not even a little.P.S. This is a BIG bottle. And a little goes a loooong way. A few drops and you’re good.

This works!

Disclosure: I received a sample product to review in exchange for my honest opinion.To start my skin care regime, I use the rosehip seed oil first. I applied two drops on my face and neck. Per the instructions, I keep the bottle in the refrigerator to keep it fresh. First, the oil is a dark amber color. I was worried that it would stain my face but there were no issues. The oil is gentle and non-irritating. It is very easy to apply and quick to absorb.To read more of my review, visit my blog!

ORGANIC Rosehip Oil and Vitamin C serum: InstaNatural brand

I recently came across a company that makes several types of skin care oils and antiaging creams. The brand is InstaNatural. I have tried several of their products and I have to say that I am impressed. I was able to test out their rosehip seed oil and their vitamin c serum. I was very happy to see that their rosehip oil was a generous 4 oz when it arrived to me. That is fantastic, and is a great value for the money. I had heard of rosehip seed oil and its wonderful benefits to skin, however had never tried it for myself.Rosehip Seed Oil helps diminish the appearance of scars, stretch marks and acne, other spots. I opened the container and revealed a light amber to yellow orange colored oil. Rosehip seed oil is considered a “dry” oil, meaning that it soaks into the skin easily, and does not leave a greasy residue. This is a benefit to me as I do not like when my fingers, hands, or face feel sticky or greasy. I applied some oil to my fingers and then applied to my face. It is a rather pungent smelling oil, not terrible, but definitely stronger in scent than other types of oils. To me, it smells oily, if that makes sense? 🙂 This does not prevent me from using it, and it is not something other people would smell once this is on your face, so do not worry.Rosehip seed oil is an excellent facial hydrator, anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant, and penetrates skin while reducing the appearance of scars and fine lines. It is able to help repair the skin’s surface and restore elasticity. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and collagen and wrinkles occur. It contains Essential fatty acids, which are beneficial for healing the skin.This InstaNatural Rosehip seed oil contains only 100% Pure Certified Organic Rosehip Seed Oil – No fillers, which is nice. I stay away from cosmetics that are filled with chemicals and hard to pronounce ingredients.I oil cleanse my face each day (I use various oils and like to vary it what types I use)and do not use any sulfates or traditional soap based cleansers. Sulfates dry out skin and cause skin to actually produce more oil and breakouts. I have noticed a big improvement on my skin over the past year with just removing sulfates from my lifestyle. (I do not use traditional sulfate shampoo either). Sodium lauryl sulfate, a common ingredient added to face wash and cleansers to make soaps foam, is a chemical that is lurking in most of the products available today. I read labels and if it is in a product, I pass on using it. It strips the skin of natural oils that our skin needs for protection and moisture. When we use sulfates, our skin reacts and then tries to restore itself by producing more oil to compensate.After washing my face with my usual jojoba oil, caster oil, grapeseed oil, and glycerin mixture, and then hot water facial cloth steaming, and closing the pores with cool water, I allow my face to dry. I then apply Vitamin C serum, and allow it to soak into my face. Since receiving the Rosehip seed oil, I have added it to my facial oil cleansing mixture. This oil doesn’t clog my pores, and it has many skin loving and nourishing properties.I have also used this Rosehip seed oil as a first aid oil for various cuts and rashes in this household. My husband has dry hands and knuckles and he has used this to soften and heal his skin when it cracks.I also received the InstaNatural Vitamin C serum and have been testing that out as well. I apply it after my face is cleansed, steamed, cooled, and patted dry. I apply the Vitamin C serum as well as the InstaNatural Hyaluronic acid serum. The Vitamin C serum contains Vitamin C (20%) + E + Ferulic + Hyaluronic Acid, but as an added benefit, I use the stand alone Hyaluronic acid as well. I like the way my skin feels hydrated afterwards. The Vitamin C serum contains many beneficial ingredients, but the ones I love the most are the aloe vera, jojoba oil, witch hazel, and glycerin. Those ingredients work really well on my skin and are soothing.I like both of these products and recommend them.If you found this review or any of my other reviews interesting or helpful, please rate is as "helpful" and or leave a comment. I enjoy writing reviews and hearing feedback about what I have written as I feel reviews help those interested make an informed decision before purchasing.
