I am SO excited to finally share this review with you all!! I have been testing out a lot of skincare lately, which means it takes me awhile to get these reviews out because I like to test out products for at least three weeks at a time so I can give you a thorough and accurate review on how my skin reacts to them, so you can determine if they may work for you. Precious Skin Elixirs sent me some absolutely beautiful products to try and I was initially just blown away by the thought and care that goes into them. First and foremost the packaging is exquisite and they purposely use Miron violet glass to protect the high quality oils more effectively!! This method dates back to ancient Egypt where it was used for the same purpose, protecting scared oils, how cool is that?!? I was sent their Amethyst Calming Serum, the Rose Quartz Balancing Hydrsol, and the Sterling Honey Polish to try out and all I can say is Precious Skin Elixirs is going to take the green beauty world by storm because these products are the real deal!!
So what is Precious Skin Elixirs all about??

Amethyst Calming Serum: This serum was made to calm and balance your skin. Made with high quality oils of borage oil which contains the earth’s highest plant source of linolenic acid which stimulates rapid cell regeneration and red raspberry seed oil which provides an exceptional amount of antioxidants and protects the skin from environmental stress. My skin responded very well to this luxurious serum. I applied a few pumps of this serum after cleansing and spraying my rose quartz hydrosol in the evening and I woke up with hydrated, glowing and balanced skin. Since there is black cumin seed extract in this serum, I didn’t experience any breakouts since black cumin works wonders at keeping my skin clear-I love it! All of the oils used in this serum are organic and wildcrafted and it’s completely non-toxic! In my opinion, this serum is ideal for those with sensitive, acne-prone, or dull complexions. Retail: $80 for 1 oz. http://www.preciousskinelixirs.com

Rose Quartz Balancing Hydrosol: I loooooove this gem, the gorgeous fresh rose scent alone is completely intoxicating and it’s hard not to overuse it!! Made to soothe and balance the skin, I found this hydrosol extremely effective at adding extra hydration to my skin before I even applied the calming serum. The two make a beautiful pair and I must say this is one of the most effective mist’s that I’ve ever used on my face. Retail: $60 for 3.7 oz. http://www.preciousskinelixirs.com

Sterling Honey Polish: Made with raw honey, kaolin clay, and colloidal silver which has exceptional anti-microbial properties, this polish exfoliates the most delicate of skin and doubles as a face mask that draws out impurities. I used this polish both ways and found them both to be effective. If using as a mask leave on for 15-30 then rinse throughly with warm water.
