Head to Toe Body Creme’s Most Active Ingredients
December 8, 2009

We boast about how our Head to Toe Body Creme will help all skin types feel softer and look smoother.  But we know the list of ingredients can be somewhat daunting.  So, we’ve pulled out some of the most important ones and outlined what, exactly, they do for your skin.

The gel of the Aloe plant has been used to heal the skin for centuries.

The Aloe Vera plant has been used for centuries as a remedy for a number of skin conditions.  This plant holds within its skin a thin gel that, when applied topically, can help heal wounds and strengthen cells by bringing oxygen to the skin.  In our Head to Toe Body Creme, the Aloe Vera helps keep the skin moist and healthy.

Amino Acids are peptides.  There are four main acids that, when combined, form an effective skincare treatment.  These four are Proline, Glycine, Leucine and Lysine.  Aunt Odie’s Head to Toe Body Creme contains all four of these acids. Together, they will work to build collagen, which is what makes the skin firm.  We lose collagen as we get older, which is why wrinkles appear.  This formula exfoliates, moisturizes and releases toxins, all the while strengthening the skin, and improving the look of wrinkles and age spots.

A Jojoba seed pod. The beans secrete oil, useful for helping with irritated skin conditions.

Jojoba Oil comes from the beans of the jojoba plant.  The beans secrete an oil very similar to the oils produced by the human skin.  Therefore, it is easily absorbed into the skin.  It is known for helping reduce the signs of aging in skin by promoting the growth of new cells.  It’s especially good for people with eczema and other skin conditions, as it will soften and moisturize the skin.  There is also an antibacterial component to the oil, so it’s often used to treat acne.

Lignin is a complex chemical compound found in the walls of plants.  It’s what gives vegetables their crunchiness.  In our Head to Toe Body Creme, lignin helps the skin better absorb ingredients.

Diary of an Aunt Odie product user
November 27, 2009

I’ve continued to use the Truly Incredible Head to Toe Body Creme on my hands, arms, feet and legs.  I’ve never used a moisturizer that leaves my skin feeling so smoothe, without leaving a heavy gunk behind.  Aunt Odie’s is lightweight.  It lets my skin breathe while it moisturizes.  I’m very pleased with the results.  I put the creme on once in the morning and can feel it working ALL day.

I’m also using the Young Eyz, especially because I have some circles under my eyes.  I work long hours at a busy restaurant, and I’m often losing sleep.  But Young Eyz lightens under my eyes, tightens around them and makes me feel like my whole face is fresh and bright.

I’ve been using both of these products for about two weeks, and I’ll keep you posted on the results as I go.  Stay tuned for my review of the Toner Serum.

Hello, IMG_2401-edit

I received my first package of Aunt Odie products in the mail today from the fantastic Michael.  For the next few weeks I will be blogging about how the products I’m using are working, what I’m experiencing, and what my favorites are.  I’ll be testing the Head to Toe Body Creme, the Young Eyz, the Skin Toner Serum, and a new product they are working on aimed at reducing the effects of PMS.

So far, I’ve applied the Head to Toe Body Creme to my consistently dry hands and can already feel it working.  My skin feels like it’s covered in a light layer of satin.  There is no heaviness to the creme, and it is making my skin shine.

I’ll be applying the Young Eyz tonight after I’ve washed my face, although you can apparently use the creme with makeup.  I’ll also be applying the Toner Serum this evening.  I’ll keep you posted.

For more info, check out AuntOdie.com.  Here you will find prices, sizes and a detailed description of the products.

P.S. – Included in the package was a load of DumDums.  I was so delighted!
