New Year, New Skincare Routine with OZ Naturals!

It's a new year, and I have kind of been jonesing for a transformation lately. I have been feeling like something needs to change. New makeup? A new haircut? Maybe a new hair color? I haven't decided yet. In the meantime, I thought I'd take a baby step and try shaking up my skincare routine. After a few weeks spent feeling under the weather, my face was left looking a little worn out and dull. Normally, I am not big on doing skin care reviews, but when when OZ Naturals asked if I wanted to partner with them to try some of their skincare, I figured why not? This may be the start of the change I've been craving. 






What first drew me to OZ Naturals was the fact that they use only natural and organic active ingredients. As you know, it is a goal to eliminate as many nasty chemicals from my home care and personal care as possible. OZ Naturals is committed to the highest formulation standards. Their products are free of:

• Parabens
• Sulfates
• Mineral Oil
• Lanolin 
• Gluten 
• Cruelty

I received 3 OZ Naturals products to try: 5% Hyaluronic Acid Serum + Vitamin C,  20% Vitamin C + Amino Blend and Hyaluronic Acid, and the Super Youth Eye Gel. 


OZ Naturals

The OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid + Vitamin C Serum works wonderfully at plumping and hydrating dry dull skin. It stimulates collagen, helping to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. It comes in a clear glass bottle with a dropper that makes it easy to access the product. The serum is not thick or greasy. It blends into the skin smooth and evenly, drying quickly. I did not notice any scent from this product. It definitely left my skin soft and hydrated. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum is safe for all skin types and is proven to plump skin and fill in fine lines. It's really affordable too, available for $16.45 on Amazon.

The OZ Naturals Vitamin C Serum is a clinical strength 20% Vitamin C serum. It neutralizes free radicals, increases collagen production and cell turnover, resulting in a smoother texture and even skin tone. Also in a glass bottle with a dropper for easy access. The Vitamin C is a little thinner than the Hyaluronic Acid, but still goes on smooth and evenly, leaving skin smooth and soft. If you are wondering about the difference in the two serums, the Hyaluronic Acid is more for hydration when the Vitamin C is more for evening tone and texture. I did notice a slight tightening feeling when using this product, but it was not unpleasant, and there was only a faint scent. You can get the OZ Naturals Vitamin C Serum on Amazon for $21.95.

OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel is a clear gel that is designed to treat every major eye concern, from dark circles, to bags, to puffiness. Made with 100% natural and 75% organic ingredients, it is specifically formulated for delicate under eye skin to reverse the signs of aging. Available in a .5 fl oz pump bottle, it smooths easily around the eyes. It is not greasy or sticky, dries quickly, and leaves tired eyes feeling refreshed. I noticed a slight tightening shortly after application. I recommend using this product at night as it can affect the look of makeup when applied in the morning. They say it can be used on the forehead as well, but since it is available in such a small bottle, I stick to just using it on my eyes so I don't run out faster. You can purchase the OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel for $17.45 on Amazon.

OZ Naturals Skin Care

As with most products, you are not going to see overnight results, but I really started noticing a change about 2 weeks into using OZ Naturals. I tend to pick apart all of my flaws when looking in the mirror, but the other day I was studying my face and thought, "Wow! My skin looks incredible!" A little conceited? Maybe, but my skin looked firmer, tighter, and had an awesome glow to it. I truly love OZ Naturals Skincare and will continue to use them in my daily skincare routine.

  15. Skincare is very important. Skin is our largest organ. We should only be using natural products on it in my opinion.

  16. 2 Weeks you say? I am pretty sure I have 2 weeks to spare. I am going to be 40 this year and the only real significant change I have seen in my face is extra dryness and sensitivity along with the weight gain. But I want to battle fine lines and wrinkles before they get too out of control.
