Review: Annmarie Gianni Skin Care

I recently received a sample kit from AnnMarie Gianni Skin Care to  test. 



About the company:

Annmarie Gianni is an internationally known author, health advocate, personality and founder of Annmarie Gianni Skin Care.Just a few years ago, Annmarie started to take a hard look at the products she was puttingon her skin. In just a few short days of research, what she found shocked her. Skin care products were severely under-regulated and most contained ingredients that weren’t safe at almost any amoun. Even products that claimed they were organic or natural had hidden preservatives and other nasty additives.
She was frustrated and motivated to find a better option, because she realized so many people were using these supposedly “natural” products.What she found was not encouraging. Many of the truly natural products weren’t up to her standards of quality or effectiveness. It wasn’t long until she realized that if she wanted to have a truly clean and natural skin care line, she would have to do it herself. So she did and Annmarie Gianni Skin Care was founded to provide a clean, natural skin care experience using natural, organic and wildcrafted ingredients.

Samples I received:
 Aloe-Herb Cleanser
Ayurvedic Facial Scrub
Citrus Mint Facial Cleanser
Coconut Body Oil
 Coconut Honey Mask
 Dead Sea Facial Scrub
 Rosemary peppermint body wash

Review: This was my first time reviewing a tanning lotion by Tan Incorporated. I must tell you how much I really loved the fragrance of this lotion. It contains Hawaiian Ginger with Citrus and Amber Vanilla which smells so yummy!! I loved how soft this made my skin. I did not feel a tingle till about 6 minutes of tanning. I would highly recommend not using this lotion unless you have a really good base tan. The tingle and redness lasted for about an hour and then went away. I was left with a much deeper tan. I really love this lotion and would highly recommend it.

Review: I am a HUGE fan of Designer Skin lotions. I was very excited to sample this tingle lotion. I love to use tingles at least once a week when I tan. The tingle in this lotion I would say is mild. I did not feel itchy like I have with other tingle lotions. I noticed a difference in my color within one hour. It made my skin super soft. I personally did not like the fragrance but it would not hinder me from using it again. The results are amazing!! I would only recommend using this tanning lotion if you already have a base tan.

Review: I must admit I was very hesitant to try this lotion. I am not usually a fan of 100x bronzer lotions. Most leave me orange and look very unnatural. They also tend to fade very fast and leave my skin dry. I was very happy to see after tanning that the lotion left my skin looking bronze and natural. I took a shower and noticed my tan was still there. I'm very impressed with this lotion. The silicones in it made my skin extra soft. Would I recommend this tanning lotion to friends?? Definitely!!

Review: Spring Break is just around the corner so I have been testing out of a few lotions to get that sexy beach glow. I really loved this lotion. It hydrated my skin and made it feel so soft. I love that it's oil free and did not leave me with a greasy feeling. This tanning lotion is not only infused with Biotan and Erythrulose complex, but also CoQ10, Coconut oil, Walnut extract, and pomegranate extract. These ingredients work so well together that they left my skin looking and feeling amazing, it also helps prevent your tan from fading. How great is that? The smell is very tropical like you are in Hawaii. I would highly recommend this tanning lotion.
