Ok so I have been meaning to feature my friend Sandi`s Etsy shop on my blog for some time now! Sorry it took so long! Sandi is a personal friend I know from my home town. Let me just say, this woman is a genius! Her skin care products are phenomenonal! Sandi also REALLY knows what she is doing! and what she is making, she isn`t one of those sellers who just throws stuff together thinking it will be fine, she researches and knows so much!!! I am not just saying this either! I REALLY love her products, and wow!!! have they changed my skin since I started using them 6 months ago. I am constantly getting comments from people saying I have nice skin, and I think I owe it all to Sandi! Since I began using the Anani and SOME skin care line, I have not seen one pimple or ugly blemish! I am even one of those people who are sometimes lazy and don`t wash their face at night! I don`t just feature the Etsy Favorite Find sellers to promote them, but because I believe they have top quality items in their stores! Seriously, check her stuff out, get samples first if you want, but try it, it will change your skin! and you! Today I featured some of the items I use, and many other fab products she has created! I also put some of her product descriptions underneath so you can read more about how great her stuff is!!!Her descriptions really show how knowledgable she really is!!! Oh AND she is REALLY reasonably priced too! Spa quality products for a fraction of the price!!!

Olive and Green Tea Maximum Moisture Fluid with Niacinamide

I use this twice a day, morning and night. Love it and can`t live without it!!!

This silky moisturizer is like giving your skin a big drink of water. Fresh and velvety, the fluid texture of this lotion is rapidly absorbed, leaving the skin incredibly supple and soft. Maximum moisture is maintained for hours leaving the skin protected and radiant.
The remarkable ability of the sacred Olive tree to survive in arid regions is due in part to its leaves which have the amazing ability to regulate water. This moisturizer contains an exclusive Olive Leaf extract and is further supported by Olive Lipids and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Organic Green Tea Extract - one of Nature’s most powerful antioxidants, helps to protect the skin from sun damage. Vitamin B3, B5, plus a powerful hydrating complex and silk protein ensures the skin is saturated with long lasting moisture and skin repairing nutrients.

WHO CAN USE IT? This is for you if you have
Sensitive/reactive skin
Irritation
ROSACEA!
ACNE!
Dryness/flakiness
Fine lines
Sun Damage
Devitalized skin

Glacial Clay Mineral Skin Polish

I really don`t know how I lived without this until just recently!!! I LOVE it SO much! I use it about 2-3 times a week. I used to be one of the suffers on flaky nose syndrome, no matter what I tried, I couldn`t get rid of it, until NOW! LOVE this scrub! and it smells absolutely lovely!


Glacial Clay Mineral Skin Polish is a gentle and very effective way to achieve this. It contains Canadian Glacial Clay, which is the rarest and most mineral rich clay found in the world today. It provides essential minerals and nutrients to your skin. It is also positively charged which helps to pull the negatively charged dead cells and debris away from your skin and from deep within your pores. (Like a million tiny,little dirt magnets) It is supported by the addition of a very fine crushed rice powder, which gently helps to loosen and scrub away dead skin. These two ingredients are suspended in the exact same deep cleansing base ingredients as the Essential Cleansing Balm with the addition of Rose, Rosewood, Rose Geranium and Lavender essential oils. Mineral Skin Polish has a beautiful deep green colour and intoxicating fragrance.


Goji Berry and Green Tea Skin Tonique

I use this before bed, and to set my make up in the morning....

Goji Berry is known as the most powerful anti-aging food in the world as measured according to the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) scale which measures antioxidant power in food. Containing large amounts of polysaccharides, amino acids and vitamins, Goji is energizing and stimulating to the skin, and helps restore collagen while fighting free radicals and repairing environmental damage. Combined with Green Tea, Aloe Vera, Cucumber Peel and Hibiscus Extracts, plus Neroli, Rose and Witch Hazel Hydrosols, this refreshing alcohol-free toner will be a gentle yet formidable weapon in your skin care arsenal.
WHO CAN USE IT: Wonderful for all skin types especially if you have Sensitive, sun damamged skin, large pores, dehydration, breakouts, dull and devitalized skin

B3 B5 Gel - with 5 Percent Niacinamide

A combination of 5% Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide) & B5 (Panthenol) along with soothing Witch hazel, Chamomile, Collagen Amino Acids & Vitamin E in a silky smooth ultra moisturizing oil-free gel. Daily use will help to combat many skin problems, minimize pores, calm irritation, restore elasticity, minimize fine lines, all while deeply moisturizing and hydrating the skin. A must for every skin condition and type.

Complete Cleansing Balm

I use this every night before bed, it gets rid of ALL your make up! Even that funky liquid liner that M.A.C makes that dries like cement! Its that wonderful! And don`t be scared that its oil based, thats what makes it SO wonderful!

Surfactant Free - Soap Free - Sulphate Free - Preservative and Fragrance Free. It doesn't get more gentle than this!

ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:
This velvety, emollient formula is rich in essential fatty acids and will transform your daily cleansing routine from a necessity to a total addiction.

No ifs, ands or buts, proper cleansing is absolutely the #1 most important step in your skin care. Your skin has a protective barrier that can easily be disrupted and damaged by improper cleansing, leading to a host of skin problems. Not the least of which: essential moisture loss which leads to premature aging of the skin. A good cleanser needs to remove dirt, residue and makeup thoroughly from the skin without compromising this critical barrier. No matter how gentle a foaming cleanser is, it can still remove more of this barrier than is good for your skin. Also, as our skin is hydrophobic (designed to resist water), water based cleansers can only clean the outer surface of the skin.

Complete Cleansing Balm is an oil-based cleanser that will penetrate deep into the pores to break up unwanted debris far more effectively than any other kind of cleanser. The addition of a special emulsifier makes this cleanser WATER-SOLUBLE allowing it to completely rinse away leaving no oily residue. Also, because oils do not have a pH, this cleanser cannot disrupt the critical pH balance of your skin.

Complete Cleansing Balm is deeply moisturizing and nourishing to your skin. It has a beautiful silky texture and melts instantly onto your skin. Essential oils of Grapefruit and Basil give it a beautiful and uplifting fragrance.

It is very different from any cleanser you may have used so it’s important to keep an open mind when first trying. After you have mastered the use of it, your skin will be cleaner and softer than you have ever experienced and you will never return to a traditional cleanser.


Fruit and Flowers Gentle Face Wash

A very gentle, natural foaming cleanser formulated with careful attention to the needs of stressed skins. Fragrance, Sulfate and Paraben free,this cleanser will gently and effectively remove impurities, leaving your skin feeling soft, clean and without any tightness.

150ML/5OZ Treatment Pump Bottle

WHO CAN USE IT?
Anyone who wants clean, healthy, smooth, soft skin. Especially good for Acne and Rosacea.


Overnight Hand and Foot Balm

Love the consistency of this balm! And it smells so nice, I love lavender!!!

Intense therapy for seriously dry and cracked feet or hands. This cream is not for the faint of heart. It's a mega-rich, heavy duty, emollient infused healing balm designed to be applied at bedtime and used in conjunction with moisture gloves/socks. Extremely high percentages of Aloe Vera and Vegetable Glycerin are combined with Natural Alpha Hydroxy Acids, Shea & Cocoa Butters, Beeswax, Olive Oil and Vitamin E. A healing and deeply moisturizing blend that over time will help to eliminate rough dry skin and cracks. HOW TO USE: Before bed apply a generous layer to hands or feet, massage in well and cover with cotton gloves or socks. No Peppermint in this one...We want you to fall asleep and rubbing Peppermint on your feet may not be the best way to do that; so it's Infused with Lavender essential oil to aid in skin healing and to help you relax while you drift off.


Skin Renew PLUS - Over 90 Percent Active Ingredients

The SUPER STAR of the Anani Skin Therapy Anti-Aging Line! I haven`t used this because i don`t need to yet, wink wink, don`t worry Sandi, I am almost 30 so I should soon, haha! Here is an excerpt that Sandi wrote about her product, copied from her site for you to read...

And last but certainly not least, Skin Renew PLUS contains the addition of the most sought after and cutting edge anti-wrinkle ingredient available on the market today, Matrixyl 3000™. This is a peptide complex developed in France by Sederma. Studies have shown this ingredient to significantly reduce the depth of wrinkles (up to 45%) in as little a 52 days. According to research, this ingredient has been proven to stimulate the development of new collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans in the dermal layer of the skin as no other topical ingredient has before.
