CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Kara Vita Canada Clinical Skincare Products Review & Giveaway!!

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012



If you’re inter­ested in find­ing out more about the best and health­i­est skin care prod­ucts in the world then look no fur­ther! Kara Vita Canada Clin­i­cal Skin­care Prod­ucts is located in Canada, and is one of the fastest grow­ing com­pa­nies in the skin care indus­try! Their Prod­ucts are made with phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal grade, botan­i­cal ingredients.

Many of us, and women in par­tic­u­lar, put an exten­sive array of lotions and prod­ucts on our skin on a daily basis as we all know. These all range from cleans­ing prod­ucts to per­sonal hygiene prod­ucts to mois­tur­iz­ers. A lot of these other com­pa­nies use ani­mals as guinea pigs, and test their prod­ucts on them. Kara Vita is a cruelty-free com­pany that does not test its prod­ucts on ani­mals, thank goodness!






My skin is very dry and always requires hydra­tion. My skin is also very sen­si­tive, and I have to be care­ful as to what I put on my face espe­cially. Hav­ing sen­si­tive skin makes me extremely cau­tious of try­ing cer­tain prod­ucts so I am always glad to come across prod­ucts that are clin­i­cally tested.

Kara Vita Canada sent me 4 extremely impres­sive prod­ucts that they carry for review, and let me tell you — I am beyond impressed with the prod­ucts that I received!! The box con­tained the fol­low­ing prod­ucts: SPF 29 which is their full-spectrum, rub-proof, sweat-proof sun­screen, SPF 30 which is their rub-proof, sweat-proof, water-proof, broad-spectrum sun­screen, their Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner, and addi­tion­ally their PBH Exfo­li­at­ing Facial Masque!






As many of you already know, I am for­ever trav­el­ling with my hubby to our favorite sunny and hot des­ti­na­tions. I was super excited to have been able to review two bot­tles of their sun­screen: SPF 29 Lotion that pro­tects from sun­burn giv­ing Broad Spec­trum UVA/UVB Pro­tec­tion. The other is also Sun­screen but it is SPF 30 and water­proof! Per­fect for some­one like me who seems to always be in the sun dur­ing all sea­sons! I tried the water­proof SPF 30 this past week­end at our cot­tage and it is won­der­ful! It pro­tected my skin while exposed to 30 degrees cel­cius weather! It was per­fect since it’s water­proof as we were all in the water a lot try­ing to keep as cool as pos­si­ble! Kara Vita Canada Clin­i­cal Skin­care Prod­ucts pen­e­trate deep into your skin and do not leave that both­er­some sticky feel­ing of residue that so many other sun­screens seem to leave on top of your skin!!






The Kara Vita PBH exfo­li­at­ing facial masque is a win­ning trea­ment that is made to hydrate, soothe, exfo­li­ate, and so much more! This prod­uct makes me feel as though I have just treated myself to a very elab­o­rate facial at my favorite spa!

I’m all for relax­ation in a hot, steamy bath, slather­ing my face in some­thing that feels rich and unc­tu­ous and thor­oughly deca­dent. The Kara Vita PBH exfo­li­at­ing facial masque did just that for me! My skin felt so soft and smooth after rins­ing it off, and I can hardly wait to use this again!! This mask gave me instant results, vis­i­ble dif­fer­ence, imme­di­ate improve­ment. This mask cleanses, puri­fies, renews and resur­faces, and that all added together equals glow­ing, smooth skin.






Lastly I had the excit­ing oppor­tu­nity of being able to try out the Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner. I was real leary and skep­ti­cal before try­ing this prod­uct as I have tried self-tanning prod­ucts in the past that left me highly dis­ap­pointed and also left me with noth­ing but orange coloured skin that looked hor­rific!! This sun­less tan­ner gives you a grad­ual glow with­out hav­ing to sit out­side for hours on end to achieve that golden tan that most desire.

While a tan can look healthy and gor­geous, not every­one wants to spend their time bak­ing in the sun or vis­it­ing a salon. The sun’s harm­ful UV rays can dam­age your skin as well as cause skin can­cer and salons are not only expen­sive but the UV rays are still harm­ful. With a self tan­ner you can ensure you have a gor­geous tan with­out tak­ing any of the risks from expo­sure to harm­ful rays!!

The Sun­dressed Self Tan­ner glided on smoothly and evenly and did not leave me with that blotchy look at all! By choos­ing this self tan­ning lotion, you can get the look you want in just a few hours — the healthy way! Happy sun­less tan­ning my friends! This is the best self tan­ning lotion that I have hon­estly ever used! No streak­ing or smudg­ing, just a per­fect even tan that makes one look like they’ve spent an entire sum­mer on the beach!!






Kara Vita Canada prod­ucts totally exceeded my expec­ta­tions, and def­i­nitely gets a huge thumbs up from CoolCanucks!!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ EarthenTM Moisturizers and Eye Creams ~ InstantPeelTM Natural Exfoliant — The At-Home Facial Peel Review & Giveaway!! CLOSED

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011


I am so excited to reveal the results of my skin after being able to review Instant­PeelTM Nat­ural Exfo­liant — The At-Home Facial Peel!

If you want to look as though you had a face lift, order this prod­uct now!! It’s an EXCELLENT exfo­liant and after using this sweet prod­uct, my face looks brand spank­ing new! Fine lines are no longer vis­i­ble, nor are the large pores!! You will defi­nately not be dissapointed.

It is some­what pricey, but well worth the money if you want com­pli­ments about your face and makeup. I am happy to have dis­cov­ered Instant­Peel & now can­not live with­out it!!



I gen­er­ally use Retin-A, and clin­i­cally proven skin prod­ucts, but dur­ing the win­ter they are too harsh, since I am out­doors alot. Instant­Peel gives me more imme­di­ate radi­ance and I fol­low the treat­ment with a good mois­tur­izer! This is the Best Nat­ural Dead Skin Remover I have ever used in my life!

A blurb from their website:

“Peel and Reveal with the Nat­ural Exfo­lia­tor
Instant­PeelTM nat­u­rally and gen­tly peels away dead skin cells, debris and impu­ri­ties to reveal skin’s true vibrancy. Instant­Peel isn’t a facial scrub. The gen­tle action comes from InstantPeel’s unique com­bi­na­tion of pro­teins and enzymes, and is proven safe for even the most sen­si­tive skin. Instant­Peel is a nat­ural exfo­lia­tor and an effec­tive alter­na­tive to facial scrubs, chem­i­cal peels, and micro­der­mabra­sion, which can cause irri­ta­tion. You can’t overuse Instant­Peel. Once the dead skin and debris are peeled away, Instant­Peel stops work­ing, reveal­ing a youth­ful glow.

Use Earthen’s InstantPeel:

•For nat­u­rally glow­ing skin — Clin­i­cal results show highly sig­nif­i­cant improve­ment in skin’s radi­ance and facial reju­ve­na­tion fol­low­ing a sin­gle appli­ca­tion. The elim­i­na­tion of dead skin cells speeds up new skin cell pro­duc­tion for notice­ably younger-looking skin.
•To dra­mat­i­cally improve skin tex­ture — Stud­ies show InstantPeel’s nat­ural exfo­lia­tors sig­nif­i­cantly decrease flak­i­ness. As we get older, the shed­ding of older skin cells slows down. Instant­Peel removes the uneven outer layer of skin cells.
•To avoid the irri­ta­tion of micro­der­mabra­sion and chem­i­cal peels — Instant­Peel is sensitization-tested for all skin types. Nat­ural pro­teins bond with dead skin cells to gen­tly lift and peel away instantly.
Facial reju­ve­na­tion doesn’t have to take hours or be out­ra­geously expen­sive. You don’t need the harsh­ness of a facial scrub to uncover radi­ant skin. Earthen’s Instant­Peel has become THE 7-minute facial for women, men, beauty edi­tors, mod­els and make-up pro­fes­sion­als — any­one who wants to face the world with a nat­ural, youth­ful glow. Dermatologist-tested, hypoal­ler­genic. For use on face and body.”

If you want younger look­ing glow­ing skin, I totally rec­om­mend that you order your­self the Instant­PeelTM Nat­ural Exfo­liant and see for yourself!!

Earthen’s prod­uct line just does not stop at Instant­PeelTM Nat­ural Exfo­liant though. You can also pur­chase their famous sell­ing Instant Cel­lu­Moist Facial Mois­tur­izer, which restores skin’s vital­ity and lumi­nos­ity. This rich, advanced per­for­mance anti-wrinkle cream is spe­cially designed for nor­mal to dry skin. Instant CelluMoist’s unique com­bi­na­tion of ingre­di­ents includes MatrixylTM (Pentipeptide-3), which has been sci­en­tif­i­cally proven to help stim­u­late col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and boost cel­lu­lar activ­ity to defend against the signs of aging.

Earthen’s Instant Cel­lu­Moist Facial Mois­tur­izer is like get­ting three prod­ucts in one:

•A skin-firming cream — Skin becomes notice­ably smoother and health­ier look­ing.
•An anti-wrinkle cream — The appear­ance of fine lines and wrin­kles is reduced.
•A facial mois­tur­izer — Skin stays soft and sup­ple all day long.

Or be sure to check out their Instant Pep­tide Mois­tur­izer for Oily Skin!

Instant Pep­tide Mois­tur­izer for oily skin deliv­ers advanced anti-aging skin care and keeps skin in bal­ance. The unique facial cream for­mula deeply nour­ishes, but is light enough for oily skin and for con­trol­ling break­outs. MatrixylTM (Pentapeptide-3), Instant Peptide’s active ingre­di­ent, is sci­en­tif­i­cally proven to help stim­u­late col­la­gen pro­duc­tion and boost cel­lu­lar activ­ity to defend against the signs of aging.

Fine lines can start at any age. Earthen’s Instant Pep­tide Mois­tur­izer for Oily Skin responds to your skin:

•Light­weight and effec­tive — Skin looks and feels softer with­out the use of heavy facial creams.
•Extra hydra­tion, not extra oil — Skin receives the nour­ish­ment and mois­ture it needs.
•Anti-aging skin care — Skin becomes smoother, and the appear­ance of fine lines and wrin­kles diminishes.

Or per­haps you wish to try their amaz­ing Clear #1 with HaloxylTM Dark Cir­cle Eye Cream or Clear #2 with Eye­lis­sTM Eye­cream to Reduce The Look of Eye Puffi­ness and Look Fresher, Younger!

I am totally con­vinced that all of these prod­ucts work, just from the review of Instant­PeelTM Nat­ural Exfo­liant sent to me to try which worked just beau­ti­fully! A lot of com­pa­nies fill our heads with false promises, but I can hon­estly assure you that the Instant­PeelTM Nat­ural Exfo­liant actu­ally works and now 4 lucky Cool­Canucks read­ers have the chance to each win a set of the Instant­Peel Nat­ural Exfo­liant just to see for your­selves how great of a prod­uct this really is! I am hon­estly com­pletely sold on Earth­ern prod­ucts now, and I know you won’t be able to live with­out yours either after your sup­ply runs out!!
