VIVE SANA SUPER CREMA SPF 20

Where has Vive Sana Serum Crema been all my life? It’s the first 100% natural, 70%+ organic mineral sunscreen I’ve used that truly is one stop shopping. It is an effective serum, moisturizer and physical UVA and UVB blocker. And it’s thankfully one of the rare, extremely well formulated sunblocks that does not use nano zinc, which is destroying our oceans and marine life.

This ceramide-rich, filler-free sunscreen is as clean and natural as it gets. Usually physical sunscreens require a lot of elbow grease to work into the skin and leave a ghostly cast. Not only does the sunscreen not make your skin white or gray, it blends in quickly and adds deep hydration. And because you can work it in so easily, you’re that much more likely to reapply. I’ve never used a sunscreen that makes my skin actually look better as if I had used a blurring primer. A perfect brightening canvas for make up. The other bonus, no pilling whatsoever. It seems to work seemlesy with all of my other skincare and make up products.

Filled with antioxidants and phytonutrients, including my favorite, collagen-boosting and anti-inflammatory Astaxanthin. Considered to be thousands of times stronger than Vitamin C and E, it improves fine lines and wrinkles, prevents sun-damage, promotes skin-elasticity and cellular repair for glowing resilient skin.

Once again, the only drawback is the very high $75 price point. But the good news is you need very little product and one product adds up to 4: your serum, moisturizer, primer and sunscreen with top notch, non-comedogenic, skin healthy ingredients!

With an SPF of 20, Serum Crema has a glowy finish. If you prefer a matte look, Vive Sana also has the Daily Protezione, another beautiful formulation at $55 with an SPF 30.

Jao All Over Long Lasting Natural Body Goe Oil

I hate you Jao. Because I love you too much. I wish I had a free lifetime supply because then I wouldn’t be so miserly when applying you. At 30z a tube, it’s just not enough when all I want to do is repeatedly dip myself head to toe in a vat of you. In fact, that is one of the many reasons why I’m obsessed with this decadent indulgence. You can apply Jao’s All OverNatural Body Goe Oil anywhere and everywhere. Hands, feet, face, lips, legs, hair. This super thick cream melts into an oil and sinks right into the skin, for deep penetrating hydration that’s never greasy, heavy or sticky. And best of all, it doesn’t fade after a few hours. My skin still feels nourished and moisturized a full 24 hours later. It tames flyaways, adds shine to your hair,  nourishes cuticles and cracked heels, soothes irritated skin. All that and it’s exceptional as an aftershave cream, calming and replenishing the skin with zero irritation, zero stinging.

Derived from 28 plant fruit and flower oils and butters, Goe is 100% truly natural and organic. Just look at the ingredients.  100% pure. Hemp, Kukuinut, Chamomile, Rosehip, Meadowfoam, Grapeseed, Mango, Pumpkin, Jojoba, Shea and the list goes on. A powerhouse rich in omegas, essential fatty acids, and vitamins A, E, C, B, G, and Beta Carotene. Luckily the smallest amount goes a long way, which makes the list price of $38 go down a little bit easier.

In these wintery months, dehydrated skin becomes the norm, but Jao’s Goe will put an end to that. The results are immediate from the very first application. And the light Tahitian Monoi scent will become an instant addiction. It will lift you into a euphoric state and your skin will thank you for it!
