Lady Soma Natural Skin Care Review

     Lady Soma is a fabulous company that is created for women's bodies. Their products include women's health and nutritional supplements as well as fabulous skin care to support a woman's body from the inside out!

Lady Soma never uses theses ingredients:
Propylene Glycol
Mineral oils 
Synthetic fragrance 

    Lady Soma specializes in using these healthy and natural ingredients, please click on them for more information provided by Lady Soma:

     I have been able to share with you, my fabulous readers, their skincare line! I received the Lady Soma Full Body Kit to test out and I will share my thought with you! The full body kit includes all 3 of their skincare products. I will go over each one separately.

Antioxidant Berry Masque

     The Antioxidant Berry Masque is made with berries known for their antioxidant properties. From the ingredient list, here are some of them; Cranberry Fibers, Organic Blueberry, Pomegranate and Organic Rhubarb! YUM! Of course there are also added vitamins A and E as well as some natural oils like grape seed oil and tangerine essential oil! There are some other ingredients which are clearly stated on the products page and packaging. 

     Directions for use were very simple! Apply over face and neck, leave on for 8 minutes, rinse and follow with moisturizer or serum. Easy enough, right. I thought so. 

     The berries in this masque use their antioxidant properties to detox your skin. This also helps with collagen production and cellular renewal. The glycolic and alpha lipoic acids have an effect similar to microdermabrasion clearing out dead skin cells to show off the new layer beneath!

My experience:
     I did not time the 8 minutes as suggested. My face routine is, well, almost non-existent. I don't have time for a separate face washing session so I do it in the shower. Before getting in the shower I opened the masque and immediately got lost in the delicious aroma! It smelled like a fruit smoothie and I was tempted to taste it! I resisted and covered my face with it instead. I left it on in the shower during my shampoo and conditioner routine. While shampooing I noticed it starting to tingle! After conditioner I rinsed my face. My skin felt refreshed. After the treatment my skin stayed fairly pink for about 45 minutes. Overall: I think the masque worked very well! There was a noticeable difference in my skin and I would recommend it to my friends who are worried about the nasty chemicals in their skincare products! I would also recommend timing the treatment better than I did...

Renewal Serum

      The Renewal Serum contains Hyaluronic Acid which occurs naturally in your skin. You can read more about that in the link above. The hyaluronic acid and vitamin A penetrate deep into the dermal layer to repair damaged skin by stimulating new cell development. 
     The directions for the Renewal Serum are just as simple as the masque! Smooth several drops on face and neck  after cleansing. May be used day or night.

Deminishes fine lines, minor scars, age spots and sun damage
Skin brightener
restores complexion and evens skin tone

My experience:
     After my shower/facewash. I applied 3-4 drops of the Renewal Serum to my face and neck. It absorbed very quickly! I love the way it feels. It's very silky, making face smoother as well. I have used the serum several times over the past 2 weeks or so and have noticed a difference in my skin! I have very freckled skin (to the point of teasing as a kid!) which makes it difficult for my complexion to be even toned. It actually seems to have slightly lightened my freckles! I searched for years as a kid for something to get rid of my freckles. I'm not saying that this serum got rid of them! I'm saying that my skin tone is more even and that I sometimes don't even wear foundation now! When I do wear foundation, the foundation seems to provide more coverage. I even was asked by a coworker if I had lost weight because my faced looked better. Her words were "Your face looks thinner and younger! Have you lost weight?" I have not lost weight, the only thing that changed was my new Lady Soma facial routine! 

Skin & Nail Treatment

     The Skin & Nail Treatment is exactly what it says. It's a cream that has Cocoa, Shea and Kokum Butters in it to moisturize and heal dry skin and nails. This deep moisturizer smells amazing!
    Directions couldn't be easier. Rub it in! LOL! Specifically it says to also massage in circular motions over nails and cuticles. You may also apply several times a day as needed. I have to say that after the first use I didn't need it again all day!

Heals dry hands
Soft, supple healthy looking cuticles
Stronger, shinier nails

My Experience:
     Amber and I have both tried this out because we have been doing a lot of Mommy-Daughter activities involving our nails. (be on the look out for a nail product review/giveaway) Before school Amber applied the Skin & Nail Treatment to her hands. We both noticed how lovely it smelled! It was a sweet, natural (not over powering and artificial) smell with some floral-ish notes. When I picked her up from school the first thing she said was "Mom, I couldn't stop smelling my hand today! Here. Smell! They still smell like that new stuff we put on!" 
     I an in love with this Skin & Nail Treatment! I work in retail dealing with money constantly so I go through a lot of hand sanitizer. The alcohol in the hand sanitizer I have to use at work wreaks havoc on my hands. Everyone at work carries lotion in their apron because of this! I can put this miracle cream on my hands and cuticles before I go to work and maybe reapply once (because the sanitizer takes it off). Even after washing with soap and water, you can still feel and smell the cream on your skin! The condition of my hands has change significantly since starting to use this product. My cuticles are definitely more pliable, my nails have stopped peeling (yes, peeling. they are almost flaky!) The only thing I would suggest for the Skin & Nail Treatment is a portable tube size so I can take it with me to work!!!!

I have to say thank you to Lady Soma for these awesome products! This is proof that all of the "technology" we think we need to be healthy and beautiful is really not necessary! We can be healthy and beautiful NATURALLY!
