[show_lookbook_widget id="168927"]I have never been big on moisturizing. As someone who has combination/acne prone skin, a moisturizer was the last thing I thought I needed. A few months ago I felt like my skin was looking a little dull, so my friends over at Space NK recommended I try Goldfaden Md Vital Boost Moisturizer. They gave me a few samples and swore it wouldn't make me break out. The truth is that balancing is the key to anything. If you over dry your skin with acne products, your skin will compensate by over producing oil which in turn... you guessed it, makes you break out. It has taken me YEARS to find the right way to balance my skin but I am so happy I finally have. Ok, now onto the gold.. This line is so clean!!! I can't tell you how hard it is to find all natural products that do what they promise. The truth is, sometimes you need the chemicals to achieve desired results. In this case, you have the strength of a dermatologist brand without all the chemicals and harsh ingredients.
Goldfaden Md has been developed by a dermatologist and the whole line is free of Parabens, Chemicals, Mineral oil, Alcohol & Gluten. It is all natural & organic. The Vital Boost moisturizer is great for all skin types. It evens out skin tone, helps to brighten, fade dark spots, shrink pores and just give you a beautiful glow. It feels so good when it goes on your face. It absorbs right into your skin and leaves no residue. Vital Boost moisturizer even helps your make up go on smoother. I am a forever fan!
I just got a bunch of other samples from the line and so far, this is what I can say. [show_lookbook_widget id="168931"]
The Hands to Heart hand moisturizer is incredible. It has a nice light smell and feels AMAZING on your hands. It absorbs right in and makes them more plump and bright. The only negative to this cream is that it's $38 dollars and I'm not sure I can justify that for a hand cream. It does have really high quality ingredients like retinol so it really depends on how important preserving your hands is to you. Everyone has their area of concerns. I do also like the fact that for every purchase they donate money to the American Heart Association.

It says that it makes the muscles in your face lazy by using 100% pure Hyaluronic Acid and advanced anti-aging hexapeptides which work to plump, tighten and smooth away the appearance of fine lines and deep creases. I can't really be an authority on this one as I have never done Botox but here is what I can say, I tried a little bit under my eyes where natural smile lines occur and it did feel tighter and looked brighter. I am a firm believer in preventative. It is a great idea to take care of your skin and do your best to prevent aging. It seems easier than trying to reverse it.

Antioxidant-rich red tea extract dissolves free radicals while seaweed extract soothes redness and irritation. Ideal for oily or combination skin. It is amazing and does everything it promises to, but be careful! It is very strong so you need a TEENY amount and so little pressure when exfoliating. When you first use it, scrub for 20 seconds and work your way up to longer. My skin is very sensitive and I did not know this would be as strong as it was. It is as strong as doing microdermabrasion, no joke. DO NOT USE THIS WITH YOUR CLARISONIC BRUSH!! Take a day off of Clarisonic when using this please!
