Elina Organics Treatment Enzyme Gel Review

Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

Elina Organics Treatment Enzyme Gel, created by celebrity esthetician Elina Fedotova, is an at-home exfoliating treatment that targets hyperpigmentation and sun damage. This exfoliating gel, which is made from highly concentrated fruit extracts, also hydrates and brightens the complexion. It can be used anywhere on the face or body where you want to treat hyperpigmentation and sun damage, but before treating discoloration it is a very wise idea to see your doctor to make sure that those areas are not precancerous lesions, cancer or melanoma.

While I find that this product is gentle on my skin, and that it does not cause it to become red or irritated, it is not recommended for people with very sensitive skin or advanced rosacea. According to Elina Fedotova, it is especially beneficial for dry, aging, and dull complexions.

I should note that Elina Organics Treatment Enzyme Gel has the delectable aroma of Orange Blossoms, and while I find it otherworldly it may not work for people with sensitivities to aromatic skincare products.

Directions: If using at home, this product can be applied every night on cleansed skin in place of a serum. Follow with your favorite Elina Organics moisturizer. This treatment is not recommended for supersensitive complexions and those with advanced rosacea.

According to Elina Organics,

Treatment Enzyme Gel helps to gently exfoliate and improve skin texture. This gel is a whole fruit-based alternative to retinol (vitamin-A) and contains highly concentrated whole fruit extracts that naturally hydrate, brighten, and firm your skin. This treatment will help get rid of unwanted pigment spots on your face and body. It is especially beneficial for dry, aging, and dull complexionsThis gel is a whole fruit-based alternative to retinol (Vitamin A) and contains highly concentrated whole fruit extracts that naturally hydrate, brighten, and firm.

Ingredient Highlights:

  • Pomegranate: a natural source of succinic acid & tartaric acid (and other alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs)) which have powerful antioxidant effects that firm skin and minimize signs of aging by reducing toxins and free radicals, lightens scars and hyperpigmentation, provides powerful antioxidants, contains natural antimicrobials from Vitamin C.
  • Kiwi & Mango: a natural source of beta carotene which is a precursor to vitamin A (retinol) and alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs), provides other powerful antioxidants.
  • Coconut Extract with Probiotics (Lactobacillus): “friendly” bacteria that hydrates and brightens skin, soothes dryness and irritation, reduces acne, minimizes the appearance of wrinkles.

Overall Assessment: This is a really effective at-home exfoliating treatment, and it is a pleasure to use.

Oven Roasted Cherry Tomatoes is one of those un-recipe recipes. A few ingredients that turn into mouthwatering deliciousness after 15 minutes in a hot oven. Culinary Cure loves using oven-roasted cherry tomatoes as a topping for chicken or fish, or even a sauce for pasta with Spinach and Turkey Meatballs.

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Dr. Hauschka Soothing Day Lotion is a wonderfully calming and soothing face lotion that is formulated for skin that is sensitive and prone to irritation, inflammation and visible redness. It has a very lightweight texture and it is fast absorbing– leaving behind no residue whatsoever. My skin can be sensitive, at times, but usually it isn't. However, I have found that this nourishing and hydrating lotion is indispensable after at-home peels and exfoliation since they can leave skin a bit irritated and red. 

According to Dr. Hauschka,

Soothing Day Lotion helps soothe sensitive, reddened skin. Helps reduce the appearance of skin prone to enlarged capillaries (couperose). The silky-smooth texture offers the skin long-lasting protection throughout the day. The composition with premium botanical extracts and oils helps enliven the skin’s natural process of oil and moisture production and reduces tautness. Valuable extracts of rose, borage and lady’s mantle help support the skin and foster an even-looking complexion. The lotion goes a long way, glides on easily and is an ideal base for make-up.

For skin prone to redness and enlarged capillaries. Cruelty-free.

Directions: Each morning after cleansing and toning, apply evenly to the face, neck and décolleté. The lotion goes a long way, glides on easily and is an ideal base for make-up.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Alcohol, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycerin, Althaea Officinalis Root Extract, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Borago Officinalis Extract, Alchemilla Vulgaris Leaf Extract, Hypericum Perforatum Flower/Leaf/Stem Extract, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Citrate/Lactate/Linoleate/Oleate, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Arachis Hypogaea (Peanut) Oil, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Seed Oil, Rosa Canina Fruit Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Extract, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Bran Extract, Fragrance (Parfum)*, Citronellol*, Linalool*, Geraniol*, Citral*, Benzyl Alcohol*, Eugenol*, Farnesol*, Limonene*, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Galactoarabinan, Chondrus Crispus Extract, Cetearyl Glucoside, Hectorite, Sucrose Polystearate, Algin, Sodium Citrate, Xanthan Gum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lecithin, Citric Acid. *from natural essential oils.
