From Healthy Directions:

Science and Quality

Retinoil-5™

Retinoil-5 contains a unique combination of 5 ingredients that give you the wrinkle-fighting power of retinol without any redness, irritation, or flaking.

  1. RETINOL erases wrinkles and smoothes skin. The superstar of skin renewal, retinol works on a molecular level to speed up cell turnover, revealing fresh, new skin cells and glowing skin beneath. Clinical studies1 show retinol works to:
  • Reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Fade away brown spots
  • Boost skin-plumping collagen
  • Smooth the skin texture
  • Shrink unsightly large pores

Retinoil-5 provides retinyl palmitate, a precursor to retinol that’s blended together with retinol to give you all the benefits without the harshness of pure retinol!

  1. VITAMIN C helps retinol work better! This powerhouse antioxidant helps protect against the aging effects of the sun and free-radical damage. And it helps clarify and brighten skin for a more even skin tone. Plus, research shows that vitamin C helps retinol work better!So you get even more age-fighting power, but still none of the irritation or redness.
  2. POMEGRANATE hydrates and calms your skin. This superfood is packed with micronutrients, antioxidants, and phytosterols that not only work on the inside of your body—but work like magic when applied to parched or aging skin. Its sterols increase skin hydration and its fatty acids calm and soothe skin.
  3. LICORICE brightens and evens out skin tone. The root of licorice (which contains glycyrrhetinic acid) when applied topically helps soothe irritated, inflamed skin and acts a skin brightener to help even out skin tone. It’s also known for its ability to help fade dark spots.
  4. CUCUMBER rejuvenates and “cools” skin. This favorite summer vegetable has been used for hundreds of years as a facial treatment and remedy for skin irritation thanks to its cooling effect. Its high alkaline level also helps improve your skin’s pH and neutralize acidity.

Aloe vera

A 2-week randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study suggests that freeze-dried Aloe vera extract improves skin hydration.2

Squalane

Squalane is naturally found in your sebum, a critical substance in the skin’s outer layer that keeps your skin moist, soft, and free from wrinkles. The trouble is squalane levels peak in your 20s, then start to decline.  It’s one of the reasons we lose that dewy, luminous look, especially after age 40 when squalane levels really start to run dry.

When you lose squalane, your skin loses elasticity, gets drier, and becomes more prone to wrinkles. But when you replenish your skin with squalane, it’s like feeding your skin its own natural moisturizer.  Squalane has been used as an ingredient in topical creams and cosmetics for several decades.3

Jojoba Esters

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical study, researchers evaluated the skin application of jojoba esters. The results showed a decrease in dryness, roughness, and flakiness in just 30 minutes; reduced fine lines in one hour; and visibly improved skin firmness in 5 hours.4

Who is Healthy Directions?

Our business originated in the newsletter division of Phillips Publishing International (PPI) more than two decades ago.

In 1985, PPI began expanding its newsletter offerings to include natural health–related titles that featured advice from alternative medicine doctors. These included the 1991 launch of our flagship letter, Dr. Julian Whitaker’s Health & Healing, and the acquisition of Mountain Home Publishing and the newsletter Alternatives, both owned by Dr. David Williams.

The health advice was well-received, and readers began calling to find out where they could buy the nutritional products recommended by our physician editors. We helped point them to safe, appropriate sources, and then began working with the doctors to formulate their own supplements.

The rest, as they say, is history.

In 2004, the business was sold and officially rebranded as Healthy Directions. Today we are proud to be a leading health publisher and direct-to-consumer retailer of doctor-formulated nutritional supplements and skincare products, dedicated to helping people lead healthier, happier lives. Healthy Directions provides expert guidance and advanced nutritional supplements from America’s most knowledgeable and highly respected integrative and alternative health doctors including Julian Whitaker, MD, Dr. David Williams, Stephen Sinatra, MD, Susan Lark, MD, Aaron Tabor, MD, Richard Wurtman, MD, and Joseph Pergolizzi, Jr., MD.

Does it work?

I was actually already a fan of Healthy Directions before trying this product, and I didn’t realize their connection to this moisturizer until I sat down to write the review! If anything, Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C Moisturizer made me love Healthy Directions even more. I expected a serum, but this product is kind of a serum-moisturizer hybrid. It’s less cloudy and oily than most serums, but it’s not as thick and creamy as a typical moisturizer. The product is actually fairly runny and looks almost like perfume in the bottle. The packaging feels nice and expensive, which is always a plus for me. I love a glass bottle! Luxurious packaging makes using beauty products feel more like pampering. The pump is very functional–it’s sanitary (keeps bacteria out) and helps control how much product is dispensed. However, it seems to shoot out of the pump sometimes, which can be an issue. This moisturizer feels amazing going on the skin, and it takes a few minutes to sink in. If you’re going to follow it with a cream, make sure to give this product time to sink in completely. It leaves my skin looking fresh, dewy, and clean. I can’t speak for how well it works on wrinkles, but my mom has tried it a few times and is impressed with the results. Her face looks a little firmer, and she loves how the product feels going on! It does seem to be helping my dryness, and I’m not having flaky skin near as often. I’ve very sensitive to scents in beauty products, and there is little (if any) scent to this one. I notice a faint minty smell when applying, almost like vapor rub, but it’s not too strong and quickly disappears. Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C Moisturizer is a little pricey, but one bottle will last you for awhile. And it could potentially replace several products in your beauty arsenal.

Does it work?

Amara Organics is the latest in a series of Vitamin C Serums I’ve been trying. It comes in a slim white box with the green & pink Amara Organics logo on it. Inside the box is a dark bottle with a medicine dropper, which is one of my preferred packaging methods for serums (the other being a bottle with a pump). The dropper ensures the serum stays clean and free of bacteria that may transfer if you were digging cream/serum out of a pot. The dark brown bottle protects the serum from light. Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum does not have a fragrance. I prefer a fresh citrusy scent (I’m looking at you, Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum!!), but fragrance free is the next best thing. The serum has a good consistency and feels nice going on the face. It’s easy to spread, and a little goes a long way. I noticed positive results when using this serum–my skin appeared brighter, healthier, and smoother. This (1 oz) bottle lasted me around 3 weeks, & I used it morning and night. If you use a separate night serum, you could probably get a good 2 months use out of 1 bottle of Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum. While it’s not my favorite serum, it holds steady in the top 5 of my list. It’s much cheaper than my personal favorite (Murad), and if you like fragrance free products, this is the serum for you. The company seems to have great customer service as well. Not only do they offer a money back guarantee, but I received an email from the company when my product shipped from Amazon. The email included directions for using the product and a way to get in touch with questions or problems. I also received a follow-up email about a month later asking for direct feedback. It’s impressive that the co-founder of the company is so involved and customer-centric! Amara Organics has made a good impression on me, and I’ll likely try more of their products in the future. Highly recommended!! (I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.)

Where do I get it?

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum is available on the company’s website (currently $19.95) and on Amazon (currently $17.95 with Prime shipping).

MY REVIEW:

I’ve tried several serums over the past year, and this is one of my favorites. It’s gentle on sensitive skin, feels great going on, and is good for your skin! I wish it had a citrusy scent like Murad’s Vitamin C serum, but that’s something I can overlook. I really like the consistency of this serum, which almost feels like a gel. I have noticed an improvement in my skin already, and I’ve only been using the serum about a month. I like the packaging of this product as well, from the dark bottle to the cute label. If you’re searching for a new serum to try out, look no further! Foxbrim’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum is currently $14.50 on Amazon with free Prime shipping. Check it out here.

My Review

I really like this serum! The pump is a nice change from the usual dropper that I find in serums. It dispenses a good amount of product, and it’s easy to push. The serum itself is a little thicker than I’m used to, but I like that it’s unscented. Having said that, I don’t like it as much as Murad’s Vitamin C serum that smells like natural citrus. The product seems to be making my skin look smoother. The packaging is nice, but I kind of wish I could see the product inside. Overall, I’m happy with this serum.

MOREA Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum is available on Amazon.com.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
