I am so excited that I was given the chance to review Dermelect skin care! I had heard many amazing things about Dermelect, and couldn't wait to give this brand a try. My main focus on skin care at this season in my life is anti-aging. Dermelect's products are specifically developed to deliver real results, not empty promises!
I was sent a few of Dermelect's best selling products to review. Read about them below.
A luxurious, grease-free formula that will immerse your hands in a silken glove of moisture that locks in without leaving behind a greasy film or residue. On top of that, it also addresses the appearance of thin skin on the back of the hands. Featuring our peptide-infused technology, Timeless works to hydrate dry skin, address the appearance of thin skin and age spots found on the back of the hands. Water-reactivated formula works especially well for frequent hand-washers.
Hands are the first part of your body to show signs of aging. It is hard to keep them protected and moisturized since we use our hands so frequently. Not to mention I wash my hands hundreds of times a week. I don't always remember to apply hand lotion after every wash. This amazing hand treatment locks in moisture so that my hands are still being protected even when I forget to re-apply. My hands have never felt to luxuriously soft! This formula is perfect for winter, too, because my hands often become dry in the colder weather. This daily hand treatment is preventing them from drying out. I apply this product throughout the day, and at bed time. I am very pleased at how my hands look so much younger. They aren't looking old and haggard looking. My hands look twenty years younger!
A comprehensive blend of ingredients combine to help hydrate and streamline the appearance of the delicate skin of the neck, lower jaw, cheeks and chin area. Non-greasy formula- for all skin types.
As I continue my quest for products that live up to their claims of taking years off of my appearance, I can happily add Self-Esteem Neck Firming Lift to my list of products that truly do work. The neck and decolletage (along with our hands) is one of the first areas where aging is visible. I hate that! I have tried many different products that promise to firm up the neck area, and they simply don't live up to my expectations.This product has truly made a difference! I have been using it for two weeks now, and it seems to be transforming the skin on my neck and chest. These problem areas have improved in texture and firmness, and I am very impressed.
Super moisturizing serum corrects skin's moisture balance, absorbency and tone. It works to minimize the appearance of fine lines for a clearer, more vibrant looking skin. Provides an advanced moisture binding complex to seek out dry areas and boost optimal hydration. Anti-oxidant protection for overworked skin helps stimulate cell renewal. Comfrey and Green Tea improve the appearance of skin’s firmness and elasticity. Perfect for everyday wear.
A serum is one of the most important steps in my skin care regimen (after cleansing.) I love Cellular Redefining Face Serum because it adds a concentrated dose of moisture to my face, neck and decolletage that my thirsty skin needs. It definitely plumps up my lines and wrinkles, and gives my skin a fresh, youthful appearance. I love how this amazing formula is quickly absorbed by my skin, without leaving any greasiness.
Enter to win: One winner will receive the following Dermelect skincare products: Timeless Anti-Aging Daily Hand Cream, Self Esteem Neck Firming Lift, and Cellular Redefining Face Serum. (ARV: $102)

Fall has arrived, and that means cooler weather, and drier hands. Luckily, you can keep your hands and nails in-tact and looking healthy with these tips from Skyy Hadley and products from Lauren B. Beauty!
Many people don’t realize, but taking care of your cuticles is the best way to keep your nails looking their best. Skyy Hadley, owner of As U Wish Nail Salon, is a firm believer in tending to your cuticles for strong and lustrous nails. Follow her tips below for the best results:
- Always use a cuticle oil/cream. Having dry, scraggly cuticles is not a good look and may even make you want to pick them, which can lead to a bacterial infection. Using a cuticle oil can make your manicure last longer. Keeping the nail beds and areas around your nails moisturized will make the nail polish stay in place longer. A cuticle oil is a great way to make a two day old manicure look like you just walked out of the salon
- If you don’t have cuticle oil or cream available, you can use anything from your kitchen! Olive oil, baby oil, or even Vaseline are quick go-to solutions
- NEVER cut your cuticles, they should only be pushed back. Cuticles are designed to protect your fingers from infections, and bacteria. You should only cut the dry skin around the nail and not the actual cuticles themselves
To keep your hand and nails looking and feeling fabulous, these luxurious products from Lauren B. Beauty are the ultimate in nail care innovation

Lauren B. Beauty Nail & Cuticle Balm ($30)
Lauren B. Beauty Nourishing Hand Crème ($24)

There's nothing quite like having a gorgeous manicure with long wearing nail polish that stays on forever! I have recently discovered gel nail polish. I absolutely love it! I am even more thrilled that I have found the MelodySusie Pro60W Smart Lamp Gel Nail Dryer so that I can do my nails at home without having to visit the nail salon.
The MelodySusie Pro60W Smart Lamp Gel Nail Dryer cures my gel nail polish so that it lasts as long as possible. This is a miracle for me because my nail polish usually always comes off in a day or two since I am constantly doing dishes and washing my hands.
This lamp is very easy to use. You simply polish your nails with your favorite gel nail polish, set the timer, insert your hand in (the lamp lights up automatically when your hands are inserted) and wait for your polish to cure. This nail dryer has 4 kinds of pre-set time controls ( 15 seconds, 30 seconds, 45 seconds and 60 seconds), you can choose which time you want, according to your needs. The lights automatically turn off when the time is up.
The MelodySusie Pro60W Smart Lamp Gel Nail Dryer can work with UV and LED GEL Nail Polish such as following brand nail polish:
UV: CND Shellac Color Coat, CND Shellac Top Coat, CND Shellac Base Coat etc.
LED: Harmony Gelish Soak Off Series, OPI Gelcolor Nail Polish, Orly Gel FX, Red Carpet Led Gel Polish, Gelicious GEL Nail Polish, Any LED GEL Polish etc.
You can even do your toenails!
After curing my polish with this Smart Lamp Gel Nail Dryer, my manicure lasts for about two weeks! This can really be a lifesaver. For instance, if you are going on vacation, you can do your nails ahead of time and not have to worry about touching up your nails while you are away. This will certainly come in handy for when I go to Hawaii in July for my oldest son's wedding.
The photo below is of my daughter's nails after using the MelodySusie Pro60W Smart Lamp Gel Nail Dryer. This is how her nails looked nine days after she used the lamp! Wow!

What a great philosophy to have about life! I got the chance to review some of SpaRitual's amazing products, and now I am a huge fan. I was sent a few of their wonderful hand care products. The appearance of our hands reveals a lot about a woman, especially her age. That is why we must take proper care of them! Below are a few of the products I received.
HandPrint Hand Serum is formulated with Swiss Apple Stem Cells and infused with Ginger Root Extract to soften and smooth skin’s texture, Pumpkin Fruit Extract to help build collagen and promote elasticity, and Licorice Root to help brighten discoloration.
I absolutely love this hand serum! It goes above and beyond any hand cream I have ever used. This serum takes years off of the appearance of my hands. Gone are the embarrassing wrinkles that made my hands look rather elderly. The skin on my hands looks so young and lovely! This serum feels luxurious and silky and leaves no residue on the skin. I apply it between hand washings and right before bed. It is a miracle product for me!
Smooth on SpaRitual's multi-purpose balm to provide long-lasting moisture that soothes dry, over-stressed skin. Formulated with Fair Trade Certified Organic Shea Butter and Cocoa Seed Butter to help retain moisture and protect the skin. Rich in antioxidant properties that provide a protective barrier between the skin and the environment and promote elasticity and cell regeneration. Use on hands, feet, lips and body.
My daughter's knuckles were dry, chapped and cracking from the bitter cold weather. Nothing she was using was helping to heal them, until I suggested that she try SpaRitual's multi-purpose balm. She applied it on her raw skin and felt immediate relief. Now, Myelie applies it after every hand wash and before bed to keep her hands supple and to protect them from the elements. Her knuckles are baby soft now.
Penetrates the nail matrix to condition cuticles and promote healthy nail growth. My cuticles were looking rather ragged and I had some terrible and painful hangnails. After using Cuti-Cocktail Cuticle Oil Pen & Pusher (about twice per week) my cuticles look and feel renewed and pampered.

Priti NYC was founded by Kim D’Amato. The idea behind Priti NYC came alive during her pregnancy. D’Amato made a conscious effort to switch to organic foods and health products, yet couldn’t seem to find a way to beautify herself in the same natural manner.
In 2005, D’amato launched Priti NYC with one simple mission: to support organic farmers and to decrease the amount of chemicals poisoning the earth- and it’s inhabitants-one manicure at a time.
