Revive Your Beauty Routine this Spring

Spring is here, it is time for all things new. Take this time to revive your beauty routine with quality products that will liven up your entire look. I was able to check out a few products to add to my personal beauty routine that I’ve enjoyed and want to share with you.

I received product to facilitate this post.

Revive Your Hair Care Routine

I learned a long time ago that what you use to care for your hair makes a huge difference! Your hair is the first thing people see, second only to your face. Make it beautiful with quality products like those from Organic Doctor. I was able to check out the Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Treatment Serum for this post. I’ve used serums for my hair and my daughter’s hair for years but none have been quit like the Moroccan Argan Oil serum.

It makes your hair shine by giving it rich vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids. These elements are combined with organic essential oils and fruit extracts for treatment that smells great and absorbs into your hair.

What makes this product different than others I have used is #1 consistency #2 absorbency.


As you can see in the photo above, it is a very thin, liquid product – not thick and oily like others. This allows it to work into your hair quickly and evening. Plus, it absorbs quickly, leaving your hair smooth and shiny without oily. I must admit that when I first started using the product, I added several squirts of the product to my hair since it is thick and long. This made my hair oily because I used too much product. Now, I use just one squirt and it is perfectly conditioned and smooth. I like that you don’t have to use a lot to get consistent results. I use it in my daughter’s hair to get rid of the mess of tangles she gets in her baby fine hair as well.

You can purchase Moroccan Argan Oil Hair Treatment Serum on the Organic Doctor website for just $19.99. Right now, there is a buy 2 get 1 free special too. One bottle will last at least a couple months or so.

Revive Your Skincare Routine

Anti-Aging Serum

I have used a variety of anti-aging serums over the past years. When I tried the new L’dara Advanced Anti-Aging Serum, I hoped for some results but didn’t expect such quick results. I noticed the my skin felts smoother and healthier within days of using the product. L’dara is the first to use LBP-5 Complex™ derived from goji berry to produce younger looking skin faster.


L’dara is clinically proven to help your skin tone, texture and moisturizing with 35% average reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in just 4 weeks. That’s huge!! The way it works is the serum helps prevent moisture loss in your skin which gives you a smoother and more hydrated appearance.

I’m not sure if I can take the liberty of saying this but it is sort of like all the pot holes we have on our roads from this horrible Winter. When it snows, it fills in those pot holes.

On a more technical note, the L’dara Serum helps maintain your skin’s barrier lipid balance and helps increase the skin’s metabolic rate for a firmer, more youthful texture. All I know is that my skin looks younger and I love it.


It is a relatively thin serum. I use only 1 squirt for my entire face and a little on my neck – who wants a sagging neck when they are old?! It goes on smooth and dries evenly. You can either add your moisturizer on top or don’t use any at all. I have found that I don’t need an additional moisturizer when using this product, so I don’t.

L’dara did a 4 week study on 30 women at various ages. See their results in this remarkable video.

You can purchase  L’dara Advanced Anti-Aging Serum on the L’dara website for $120.

Environ® AVST Eye Gel

My problem area is around my eyes. I’ve been using the Environ® AVST Eye Gel vitamin based product this month and have seen improvement all around my eyes. This eye gel contains Vitamins C and E, peptides and low levels of Vitamin A helps soften the appearance of fine lines around the delicate skin around the eyes.

I can feel that the skin around my eyes feels and looks firmer with the fine lines starting to fade just after a few weeks. I use both in the morning and at bedtime. Even though I have sensitive skin, I’ve had no problems at all with it.   This small bottle contains a lot of product. I’ve been using it for weeks and still have plenty. I only just one squirt – which is actually a bit too much. I really only need 1/2 a squirt to cover the area around my eyes. I just use the rest to fight the wrinkle between my eye brows!


Environ’s AVST Eye Gel goes on very smooth and dries quickly for make-up application afterward.

You can only purchase for it $50 through doctor’s offices, medical spas, wellness centers, and on – the ONLY authorized retailer of Environ in the US.

Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Introductory Kit

A great way to revive your beauty routine is to buy an introductory kit from a company. When a company offers several products, they are generally formulated to work together. It is often better to buy the products that work well together than one product from this company and another from another company. The Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Introductory Kit includes Rejuvenating Skin Cream, Restoring Night Cream, and Rejuvenating Face Mask. I really like how all three products absorb very well into the skin, leaving my skin soft and firm.


What makes the ApiNourish product line unique is that it uses purified bee venom, manuka honey, and natural ingredients to repair and protect again skin. Yes, bee venom.

So, why bee venom for anti-aging skin care? Bee products have been traditionally known for well being benefits.  To put it simply, bee venom makes your skin believe it was stung which then sends blood toward the affected area to stimulate collagen and elastin. This makes your skin more taut, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. My skin feels fresh and rejuvenated when I use all three products consistently together.


Don’t worry, the bees are not harmed in the collection of bee venom from Manuka Doctor. They actually sting a glass that captures the venom but doesn’t make the bee lose their lances. From there, they purify and test the bee venom for skin care use.

You can purchase the Manuka Doctor ApiNourish Introductory Kit for $58.50 on the Manuka Doctor website. Of course, this is not the product for you if you are allergic to bees.

Now is the perfect time to try something new for yourself. You deserve it! Pick up one or two of the above beauty products to revive your beauty routine this Spring and tell us what you think of them.

This was not a paid post. My own opinions were used based on my perceptions and experience. Thank you to Lippe Taylor who provided the products for review.
