Blueberries to the Rescue
Did you know that of the 40 most common fruits & veggies, the US Department of Agriculture ranks blueberries #1 when it comes to its antioxidant powers? It's true! Skin care companies have been jumping n the blueberry bandwagon over the past few years and I'd like to share Chic & Green's tried & tested best blueberry skin care products.
Here they are:
Yes to Blueberries Intensive Skin Repair Serum ($19.99) -- I have been using this serum nightly. Interestingly, I was sent a NINETY DOLLAR serum from an organic skin care company to review a couple weeks back and after testing it for a few days, I returned to the Yes to Blueberries serum because it is SO much better! This shows yet again that you DO NOT need to spend a fortune on skin care.
My Berry Organics Wild Blueberry & Caffeine Eye Creme ($36) -- This rich cream is lightweight, yet packs a punch when it comes to hydration. It is non-greasy, but leaves the delicate skin under my eyes feeling moist, but never sticky. A lovely new organic!
Eminence Organic Skin Care Blueberry Soy Night Recovery Cream ($64) -- A little goes a long way with this concentrated night cream. It is a definite splurge, but will last for a long time. Using only a pea sized amount, your skin will look hydrated and bright with only a couple of uses.
Renaud Blueberry Mint Facial Tonique ($20) -- If your skin is combination or oily, you have to try this toner! It is soothing and brightening with the blueberries, but the salicylic acid in this product helps get rid of excess sebum to unclog your pores. A lovely toner!
