Gisou Hair Mask & Hair Oil Review by Negin Mirsalehi

June 16, 2020

I am obsessed with everything Gisou, like really obsessed. At this moment, my top 3 products would be the hair oil, hair perfume, and the hair mask.

If I ever had to choose one product, and one product only, the winner would be 100% the hair oil! The smell is not too strong. It has a slight sweet floral scent, but not too “flowery” if this is a word :). It is just PERFECT. Honestly, this is a must have in everyone’s beauty drawer. It’s game changing and the crazy thing is… no matter how much you use, it never gets greasy. It only makes your hair shiner and smoother!

To see how I use all 3 products, click here or on the image below <3

Thank you for reading / watching!

Ancient Ingredients – Amazing Results

October 19, 2015

LaVigne Organic Skincare Review 

About a month ago, I left to my Northern California trip for Nutrex with a nasty burn on my right forearm. My silly butt was in a rush and burnt it closing the oven door while prepping my food

Of course a few days later, it started to bubble. Gross.

I walked into a store called William’s Naturals Foods in Richmond and came across a sheet of paper framed on the counter by the register with this bad boy next to it.

Mayan Magic Balm eh? Hmmmm…

I was interested.

The sheet read…

The Power of Tepezcohuite – Uses for Mayan Magic

  • Psoria
  • Eczema
  • Dry Skin
  • Cuts
  • Burns
  • Scars
  • Rosacea
  • Acne
  • Ingown Hairs
  • Razor Burn
  • Any skin irritations 

Any skin irritation?! :O

You guys should have seen my face of excitement ==> 😀

AND… the list continues. You can read all about it here.

Long story short, I decided to purchase a small bottle since my arm was in pain. And me being me had to do more research… which led me to their website LaVigneOrganics.com.

They have skincare!!!

William’s Naturals Foods didn’t have any other items other than their Mayan Magic Balm so I decided to contact them to see if I was able to get my hands on some samples.

I got a response the same day! And to me that was a huge plus 🙂 Not only that, they helped me decide what was right for my skin type and sent out samples soon after. It took me less than a week to receive samples of the following:

Botanical Cleanser

Illuminating Facial Polish

Vitamin C Serum

DMAE Firming Cream

Scalp Therapy

After trying the samples, I decided to try a full bottle of the Illuminating Facial Polish, Vitamin C Serum, and DMAE Firming Cream.

Today, October 19, 2015, marks one month of using LaVigne Organic Skincare and I must say that I am very happy with my results so far, especially with the Mayan Magic Balm for my burn. My arm is completely healed and the scar is practically gone. For those of you that don’t know me, my skin is super sensitive and takes a long time to heal…

Here is my experience and how I use them 🙂

Illuminating Facial Polish

Following the instructions on the back, I dispense about a teaspoon of powder onto my dampened hand and activate it by adding a few drops of water until I have a loose paste. I then gently massage it onto my face and exfoliate away 🙂

Because I wear makeup almost everyday, I tend to get a lot of dead skin and clogged pores so I like to use this every other day at night and it has been so amazing for me! It’s not over drying and what I love most about this product is it is 100% natural 😀 The ingredients consists of rice power + naturally occurring papain enzymes which – helps fight signs of aging 😉 HOORAY!!! But most importantly, it makes my skin super smooth and glow 🙂

Vitamin C Serum

I am not going to lie. I’ve been searching for a very good Vitamin C Serum because I’ve heard it’s a must in our daily skincare routine if we want to reduce hyperpigmentation, acne scars, etc. When I first tried this serum, the first thing that came into my mind was

Mmmmm this smells so good!

It is super silky and absorbs onto my skin super fast without feeling sticky.

It felt like I was at the spa 🙂

I have noticed some changes in my skin but not dramatic. I feel because this is an organic line (avocado, rosehip, vitamin E oils), I have to use it a little longer. I am half way through the bottle and will write an updated post when the bottle is complete but so far I love it 🙂

DMAE Advanced Firming Cream

As an everyday moisturizer, the DMAE cream is light and absorbs onto my skin just as easy as the Vitamin C Serum, making it ready for makeup application. SCORE 🙂 The smell is light in fragrance which is also a bonus.

Overall, I am very pleased with my results so far and LaVigne Organics sits on the top of my list when it comes to natural, organic, paraben free products 🙂

You can buy the entire line via their website www.lavigneorganics.com.  Please let me know if you guys have any questions.
