Tuesday in Review: Annmarie Gianni Skincare

8.5.12


Being a natural and organic cosmetic nut, when Annmarie Gianni Skincare  asked if I would take a look at their products.  I agreed because I'm always happy to try something out and give feedback and to share my thoughts with you guys.

I suggested I pick one or two products, but had been told there was something they had already chosen. I was a little disappointed when what arrived was a tiny sample pack of their entire selection of products.  It disappoints me because I can't really try them out. I would have preferred to have received one or two  full size product to really test it's effects over a longer period of time.  I have about two uses of the product and that's not enough to really tell you how it works. All I can give you is first impressions.

Several of them I won't even use because they just don't fit my skin type, but I gave their aloe-herb cleanser a chance the very first evening, as well as their anti-aging serum and anti-aging oil.  I have to say I really didn't like it.  Everything had such a potent fragrance to it that I was quite turned-off the whole thing.  I dislike strong fragrances in products, and had to wash it all off with my regular cleanser within minutes.  Plus, the anti-aging oil felt very heavy on my skin, and this is coming from a girl who uses organic rosehip, jojoba, argan, and other oils on a daily bases.  So I'm not stranger to the feeling of oil on my skin.

A few nights later I tried the Deep Sea Facial Scrub.  That I quite enjoyed.  It had rough grit to it, and it felt like a mini microdermabrasion.  Again, I can't tell you how it works because I only got two uses out of it.  Overall, I like what the company stands for, but I can't really tell you whether their products are effective.  First impressions are that the fragrance is way too powerful for my tastes and sensitive skin and that one product - the Deep Sea Facial Scrub - seemed pretty cool from the two times I used it.

If you've tried these products, I'd love to know what you think.

  2. I'm not a fan of strong fragrances either, but the ones in these products I just loved. It really does smell natural and fresh and not perfumey... I tried the neroli toning mist, the aloe herb cleanser and the normal to combination facial oil in sample form. Which I bought myself (blog not popular enough lol)
    Mine came with a pouch of lavender and at first I felt like the package smelled way too strong but honestly after a couple minutes I just wanted to put my face back in the packaging to smell it some more.

    Which natural products do you use regularly on your skin?
