Botanical beauty and taking the best from nature to transform your skin or look is what Mia Mariu is about with their pure skin care products and beautiful range of mineral cosmetics to their life and body plus nutritional supplement line.  When I was selected to review and give away a few of their products, I looked forward to putting working with this innovative company.

I was sent two items from their skin care line:  Anti-Aging Brightening Serum and their Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser.  It has been more than two weeks of daily use and now I am ready to fill you in on what to expect.

The Anti-Aging Brightening Serum comes in a one-fluid ounce size with a handy pump.  I've been using this creamy and gentle lotion twice a day after cleansing my face, morning and nights.  What I can say is about three days into this routine I started noticing my pores were visibly smaller and a small scar appeared lighter due to their select anti-aging peptides, aloe, vitamin B5 complex, and skin brightening botanicals. My skin tone had an increased glow that seemed to radiate from within. 

Without a doubt,  I loved how lit up my complexion looked and must admit that the longer I kept using this serum, the more beautiful my skin became until those smaller remaining  imperfections lessened to the point until they practically vanished.  As far as wrinkles go, I still have them, but with this overall way my complexion is now beaming, I doubt eyes will be focused on them as much.

I also got to test their Refreshing Foaming Gel Cleanser, which is designed for all skin types in a formula with sea kelp and aloe that is gentle enough for the most sensitive of skins, even for those suffering from rosaceae, while being tough on removing dirt and makeup.  After I wet my face, I applied a small amount and tenderly massaged this into my skin for about a minute.  This cleanser doesn't foam up excessively.  This one has less lather than some other rinse off cleansers that I had used previously, but does a nice job of melting away makeup and grime  while leaving a pleasant fresh scent and softness behind.  

This is the first time I ever tried any Mia Mariu products and liked what these two accomplished.  Now I am more curious about discovering more of their other products, perhaps, mineral makeup in the future.  Give your skin care routine a jump start with a visit to their website and find your own path to botanical beauty or even your own home business selling their products!
