Trivani skin care

I won some Trivani skin care and other products on EBay for a very low price a few weeks ago — the cleanser, toner, day moisturizer and night cream, and also a shampoo, conditioner and Provani, their progesterone cream. I like them for the most part and haven’t broken out from them. They do contain […]

Greens to Go powder

A friend of mine gave me a box of Greens to Go powder packets because he didn’t care for the taste. I have been putting it in fruit smoothies (haven’t tried it in just water yet) and I do like the taste of it that way. He got it at Costco. I was looking at […]

Healing Seed skin and hair care products

The Healing Seed products contain hemp seed oil (www.healingseed.net ). I’ve been using their shampoo and conditioner for months now and I like them a lot. They make my hair soft and they’re soothing to the scalp. The only thing about the conditioner is that it’s so thick that it’s really hard to squeeze out […]

Suki organic skin care

I was staying very clear on Livia’s skin care products, but they have changed some of their formulations so now I’m leery of continuing with them. Also, I didn’t realize that all of Livia’s toners contain colloidal silver which is an ingredient I’m very leery of after reading on Dr. Weil’s website about risks associated […]

re genetics and prevention

I just wanted to say that even though certain conditions and illnesses do have a genetic component (can be inherited from one’s parents), that still doesn’t mean that we are doomed to have the same problems our parents or grandparents did or that they can’t be prevented also.

Epiduo™ Gel combines two powerful acne-fighting ingredients into a once-a-day treatment. It’s the only single acne treatment available on the market with the hard-hitting combination of adapalene and benzoyl peroxide, and it has been proven to […]

For any of you in or near Los Angeles, there is a very good skin care studio in Tarzana called DermaCare: http://www.dermacarefacialclinic.com .

When all else fails… i have some hints

I tried literally everything: proactive, extra strength proactive, prescriptions, birth control, plus every brand on the shelf; organic, all natural, not-natural, you name it. Not surprisingly, nothing worked. My mom, a nurse, also has […]
