Living on an island can shape our perspective about how our lives impact the planet and either positively or negatively affect sustainability. We're not suggesting that we are green experts. Rather, we are interested in highlighting how we think, shop and spend can evolve so that we can sustain the earth's future for our kids. Plus we're looking at some really cool stuff! Stay tuned!
I love being a mom. I wouldn’t trade it for the world and neither would any of the other moms I know. It’s a special role that fills everyday with the best kind of joy. But it definitely comes with wear and tear. Little ones running rampant, endless diapers, no sleep, and did I shower today?
Ring a bell?
Just examples of some impending battle scenarios of any mom. And it shows, at least for me. Not only in the “my house will never be clean again” department, but on my face as well. Tired skin, puffy sleep-deprived eyes, and splotchy skin color from adjusting hormones.
I just had baby number five, and my oldest is six years old. I feel tired, and ready to be rejuvenated. I was super excited to give birth, start my road to recovery, replenish my energy and especially regain my health.
- The cleanser is made with rose hip seed, seaweed and essential oils. It smells lovely, is very refreshing, and rinses off easily.
- The exfoliator is made with Glycolic (a natural fruit acid) and is light with no granules. It feels more like an astringent you apply with a cotton ball, and rinse off after a couple of minutes.
- The moisturizer is a combo of Hyakyronic, Jojoba Oil, Squalane, and Aprilcot Kernel Oil. It is light, not greasy, and left my skin soft to the touch. It smells wonderful!
- The nightshift serum (my favorite) is composed of an active complex of soy and rice paptides, yeast protien, and hyaluronic acid and seaweed extract. It worked miracles on my puffy eyes. It’s clear, light, and you can feel it firming up the skin in the area around your eyes.
All of Ma Mi Skin products are made with all natural ingredients that I can pronounce when I read the label (very important!). They also have a stretch mark serum and a serum for C-section scars.
All products are said to have natural anti-aging properties, high quality ingredients with no fillers, are safe, toxin and paraben-free, and are clinically formulated by doctors. The products appear to be pricey, but I will tell you- you are definitely getting what you pay for. And it is more affordable when it is compared with anti-aging skin care lines or other pricey dermatologic treatments. When you take into account that it is safe, again, you are getting what you pay for.
