Like, OMG! It's the "new anti-aging advancement in skin care!"

Hallelujah! Woot woot! Yeeeeeee-haw! Wheeeeeeee!

I mean, come on- every new anti-aging product/system/treatment/etc makes this claim. And as mentioned in previous posts, I am a, shall we say, maturing woman (what? 30 is no 19 people!) and therefore increasingly down with experimenting with the latest wrinkle preventing lotions and potions. But I am also increasingly realizing that most all include fantastic, fancy ingredients that will indeed improve the look and feel of skin long term. So when it comes down to it, you really just have to find something that you love and that you feel works for you. Perhaps that something will be BIOBLISS.

The BIOBLISS System offers a range of products in order to prepare skin and extend the anti-aging effectiveness of its treatments:

Clean: This mild and refreshing cleanser includes calming cucumber extract, Aloe Vera and skin protecting antioxidant Vitamin E. Plus, it smells awesome and left my face feeling super clean.

Srub: I had no idea this was even an exfoliating scrub until after I used it (labels?! who needs em'!?) because it was so extremely gentle. Once I read the packaging (those blasted labels again!), I discovered that it's derived from coconut, olive, macadamia nut, sunflower and avocado. Nothing abrasive about any of those!

Lock It In Serum: This was my least fave of the bunch. Personally, it smelled funny and had a weird texture. And it's specially matched to the Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Patch, of which I did not receive a sample. HARRUMPH! (But my skin did feel super soft after using it.)

Hydrate Lotion: My oh my did my face feel soft and supple after using this! La-la-la-loved! I did feel though that it is better suited to fall/winter months, as it was a bit thick for the current hot and humid Michigan climate. At $60 a pop it's an investment, but definitely a splurge-worthy pick!

Listen to Your Mama

We at Brainy Beautys hunt for intelligent and attractive products on the daily, so when a treat like Mama Mio's Mighty Moisture comes along, we cannot help but find ourselves with the happiest of happy faces!

What gets me most excited about products by Mama Mio is the mission of four brilliant women to provide feelings of gorgeousness for other sexy mamas by using only the best ingredients. All Mama Mio gems come in bright, cheery packaging that provides a snapshot of the company's history and intention, a bit of info on the goodies inside, as well as a few hidden positive affirmations. 

Mighty Moisture is packed with massive strength, including proteins, peptides, and humectants intended to plump, hydrate, firm, and balance your skin. It's like a trip to the smoothie bar for your face!! This beautifully scented (seriously-the smell alone of this stuff takes my brain to a 5 star spa!!) lotion goes on smoothly and lightly and there are instant moisturizing effects once applied. 

A bonus feature to this (like many products by Mama Mio) moisturizer is the "Little book of confidence" that is tucked inside. This pumped up pamphlet includes several exercises (think: facial yoga!) to help rehab your facial muscles, tighten your skin, and increase Mighty Moisture's mightiness!
