“Beauty is only skin deep”. That is the perpetual cliche that has been around FOREVER! But what about “Beauty from the inside out?” And I’m talking about more than just being a good person here! The truth is, what is inside our cells and our bodies has a lot to do with how good we feel and look. I recently was given the opportunity to try some products from a great company called Lady Soma that carry that same philosophy through all their products.
Lady Soma solely focuses on the women’s body. We created a strict line, to enable women to find the best solutions to their feminine and personal issues, whether it be for her body or skin. The word “soma” comes from the Greek language meaning “body”. Throughout history, the Mediterranean food and culture, rich in fresh fruits, olive oil, vegetables, fish and whole grains, has been known to be the epitome of health. Scientists have known for decades that people who eat these foods have lower rates of heart disease, cancer and other health issues. We have developed a line for a woman that strictly focuses on internal and external demands of the body.
I was given the opportunity to try the Detox as well as the Full body kit, which includes the Renewal serum, Antioxidant berry masque and Skin & nail treatment. Detox The Lady Soma Detox is an advanced cleanse designed for women that is easy to follow and gentle on the system. The benefits of the detox program include getting rid of excess waste buildup, reducing bloating, and support in weight loss. The proprietary formula contains triggers detox using natural plant ingredients ingredients. I have been doing cleanses similar to the Master cleanse (maple syrup and lemon juice with no other food) in conjunction with herbs on and off for years, so I feel like I know my stuff when it comes to cleanses. This cleanse works! I will say that it definitely made me a little umm… ”loosey goosey,”
if ya know what I mean, but I could definitely feel a difference when I was done. I felt like I had more energy and I also lost 3 pounds. Not bad for week! It has also been several weeks since the cleanse and I haven’t gained the weight back. There are a lot of pills involved… 3 packs of 12 pill each day for seven days, but other than that it was super easy. Eat sensibly…. no fasting during this cleanse… and drink plenty of water. If you are new to cleanses and you want to ease yourself into a sensible detox program, this is perfect for you!The Renewal Serum penetrates deep into the dermal layer of the skin to repair damaged skin. The serum stimulates the development of new skin cells with the power of Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin A.
The formula diminishes the appearances of lines, minor scars, age spots, and sun damage for fresh looking skin. It may be used as a skin brightener to restore complexion and enable an even skin tone. I have used serums with Hyaluronic Acid in the past and this one did not disappoint. After using it for over a month, I am impressed with the results I’m seeing. My skin looks brighter without makeup on and I feel that my complexion is more even as well. I definitely plan on continuing this! The Antioxidant Berry Masque is loaded with antioxidant berries and Vitamins A, C, and E. The masque allows for a detoxification treatment using the antioxidant power of blueberries and cranberries, which enhance cellular renewal and collagen production.
The glycolic and alpha lipoic acids create a microdermabrasion-like effect that eliminates dead skin cells. The masque tingles on the skin when applied, and it will eliminate surface layer impurities. The masque is maximum strength and should be used to reveal a fresh new layer. This may be my favorite of them all! I love how it makes my skin feel! I use it at least once a week, sometimes twice if I can remember. I use it after I do a home mic roder mab rasion exfoliation, so the pores are super “open” when it goes on. A word of caution! If you have sensitive skin, you may want to be careful or possibly call the company before you try this one. It contains glycolic acid and lipoic acids which can be irritate sensitive skin. I have pretty hearty skin so it is fine for me, but just be careful! It creates a nice tingling sensation, which is just how glycolic acid feels, (I’ve had LOTS of glycolic facials over the years and even used to pair them after a medical microdermabrasion for the ultimate exfoliation treatment! )
The fact that I can feel the glycolic working is impressive, since a lot o home masques don’t actually have the ingredients to back up the claims. My face felt truly invigorated, smooth and completely re-freshed after this masque. LOVE it!! Oh… and the smell is divine!! But that is just a nice side benefit!The Skin & Nail Treatment is a deep moisturizer that repairs dry and cracked skin. Specifically formulated for skin and nails, it promotes a soft supple cuticle, while repairing existing damage. Enhances nails for a shiny appearance and healthy looking cuticles. Treatment may also be used on hands and body to heal dry skin.
This cream is pure luxurious and delicious heaven! It smells incredible… maybe a cross between vanilla and sugar cookies… I don’t know, but I know I wish I could eat it it smells so good!! It also livdes up to it’s claim! It is super moisturizing without being overly greasy. I have really dry hands because I wash them ALL.THE.TIME, and this cream definitely helped get them under control. I keep it tucked in my bedside table and give my hands a special treat before bed each night! I have to say all in all I was very impressed with everything! I have worked in the spa industry for years, so I’ve seen a lot of different product, and these all would be products I could recommend to my friends with full confidence! They are definitely Real Mom Recommended and I will be using them in the future! Thanks Lady Soma!
