Taking care of my skin in the summer has never been easy. Between my regular trips to the beach, sailing and hanging out on the town, I can never seem to achieve a lifestyle balance, and end up using a wide plethora of products aiming to tame one skin condition or other (seriously everything from wrinkles to acne to sun damage, throw in some stress rash and you have, well, my skin).

But maybe there is hope for a lost cause like me! I was recently introduced to a French brand Aixallia, which was founded in the Provence-Alpes-Cote d’Azur of Southern France. Aixallia combines a unique proprietary ultra-pure water with Mediterranean botanicals to produce fresh and rich products that help cleanse and hydrate, it is formulated with locally harvested, organic French Mediterranean botanicals, and is ECOCERT French organic certified.

I got to try out the initial line of Aixallia products, which includes:

  • Rose and Argan Revitalizing Eye Cream $45 for 0.5 oz (shea butter, organ oil, rose water, apricot kernel oil) 
  • Green Tea Protective Day Cream $48 for 1.7 oz (olive oil, vitamin E, rose water, green tea) 
  • Lavender Soothing Night Cream $52 for 1.7 oz (lavender water, sea heather) 
  • Olive and Rose Hydrating Hand Cream $20 for 1.7 oz (olive oil, shea butter, beeswax, floral rose) 
  • Rose and Almond Hydrating Body Lotion $28 for 6.8 oz (amino acids, Vitamins A, D, E, K, almond oil, Provencal honey, floral rose water)
  • Five Plants Emulsifying Make-Up Remover $28 for 5.1 oz ( floral cornflower water, plant extracts, mallow extract, red vine and blueberry organic floral waters) 
  • Coconut and Calendula Exfoliating Shower Gel $16 for 6.8 oz (fine coconut powder, calendula extracts)

The greatest thing about Aixallia products was how easily I could incorporate them into my daily routine. From moisturizing to cleansing, to removing makeup I got all the bases covered, with an exception of a face wash. I love the slightly scented products, I strongly believe in the power of fragrance, and how it can affect one’s daily mood. So far it’s only been positive with Aixallia.

Aixallia day, night and eye creams are conveniently equipped with pumps, making it so much easier to dispense and eliminate the unnecessary contact between the product and air. When we had a dog, I always used to find its hair in my skincare creams, and even before that twist off lids were one of my biggest pet peeves.

The hand cream has quickly occupied a permanent spot in my makeup bag and gets transferred from purse to purse. I try not to leave my house without it at all. Bonus perk – it can also be used as a foot cream! I am all about multi-purpose products this season!

And finally, the exfoliating shower gel is perfect for the summer, especially after long days at the beach. The extra coconut powder particles really help get all the impurities out and smooth the skin to prepare it for all the intended and unintended tanning.

Aixallia is proud to support charitywater.org, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations, by donating 1% of net product sales revenue.

iMyne

I have recently recently been introduced to iMyne. With bloggers promoting online shopping in every post and collecting commission on every item sold, I thought it would be good to post about something different for a change. Something that we can all do to bring change.

I always get inspired to style and shop when I am reading the latest issue of a favorite fashion magazine, so I did a little research on iMyne.

iMyne is a community of shoppers changing the world, just by buying from sites they already love. Many of the retailers you know and love offer money back as an incentive to shop their sites, but these incentives are rarely cashed in. iMyne works with these sites to send those savings back to you—and your favorite cause. It’s automatic and ongoing and you donate without a penny out of pocket. And, the more people in your iMyne community, the more money you earn and give. It’s easy and simple; safe and secure. It’s not cash-back, it’s cash-forward. Simply shop, earn and give.

Turns out iMyne is an easy way to donate to the charity of your choice (I picked Hera Women’s Cancer Foundation in memory of my Grandma who died from cancer 3.5 years ago), and earn some cash back. Simply download and install iMyne into your browser, you will see an iMy icon appear, and click to activate it every time you shop.
