Testimonials

I thought my readers might be interested in some testimonials from customers I have had over the years.

Nothing like truth in advertising!   And thanks to the people that spent the time to send in these words of encouragement! 🙂

Hi. I purchased a 1.7 oz size of the Intensive Moisture Cream for about $20.00 at your table in Mendocino when we were visiting there in October/November.  I love the cream and what is does for my tired, old, dry skin.  My best friends have noticed a difference in the reduction of deep wrinkles that had occurred.  The lines are softer/flatter and I am so pleased with the results.

I picked up the moisturizer and have only been using it a few days and MY GOSH! THE DIFFERENCE!!!
I also tried the Rhassoul Clay mask tonight and I LOVE that too!
I will be ordering many many many more products and recommending them to EVERYONE I KNOW!
And every time someone compliments my skin I am going to give you the credit!
BY FAR THE BEST PRODUCTS I HAVE EVER USED ON MY SKIN!

I want to let you know how great I think the Anti-scar balm is. My wife picked some up at the Mendocino Art Center and gave it to me for a Christmas gift. A timely thing since I had an encounter with a table saw and lost about 1/2 inch of my left pointer and shaved about 1/4 inch of the pad of the left thumb. Anyway, I started using the product about 5 weeks into healing, and the results were/are amazing. My wife, who is a nurse practitioner in an ER, was also astounded at the increased rate that this injury is healing. It has probably taken 2 weeks off the process. Anyway, this is a great product, and I have been singing your praises to friends, which include a LOT of woodworkers. Thanks!!!

I recently bought some Aloe Vera shave gel, and it is the awesome.  It smells great and really makes my skin smoothed.  Thank you

I just wanted to write a quick note expressing our thanks and gratitude for your awesome Goats milk complexion soap.  My husband and I are devoted fans of this soap and find ourselves using it not only as face soap but also as body soap and shampoo!  The smell, the texture and the results from using this soap are all divine!  Please don’t ever stop making this soap!

My sister sent me the deodorant your company makes.  I have very sensitive skin and consistently have severe skin irritation and itching when using drugstore products, plus they don’t work.  Your deodorant is the first product I have used that is very effective and nonirritating.

AfterGlow Naturals Lip Balm in Two Healing and Refreshing Flavors – Cool Mint and Orange

The primary purpose of lip balm is to provide a protective layer on the surface of your lips to seal-in moisture and protect them from the elements.  Because the skin on your lips is so thin, it is vulnerable to dry air, cold temperatures, and wind.  Skin dryness tends to show up there first.

There are many, many lip balms on the market, as you already know.  You are faced with dozens of brands promising everything from simple waxing over to moisturizing and nourishing to plumping and retexturizing.

bigger_lip_balm-mintSo why choose AfterGlow Naturals Lip Balm?

First our Lip Balm is handmade with only pure and natural ingredients.  These include soothing beeswax, rich herbal butters like shea, cocoa, and aloe, and protecting and healing oils like rose hip, grape seed, and vitamin E.

Also you can be confident that you will never find questionable preservatives like parabens, corrosive cleaning agents like sulfates, or phthalates used to increase the flexibility in plastics.  You can find these in other lip balms, toothpaste, tanning lotion, shaving gels, industrial cleaners, and shampoo!  They are not needed, not natural, and clinically questionable so why put them on so important, thin, and vulnerable a part of your body, your lips!  You will never find them in our Lip Balm.

Here are some of the ingredients you will find and why we use them to care for, protect, and heal your lips.  For a complete list of the ingredients, please click here for our Cool Mint Lip Balm and here for our Orange Lip Balm.

Beeswax has properties similar to the skin’s natural oils. It penetrates skin in seconds and lasts for hours holding in moisture and protecting skin from harmful external agents. It sooths, softens and protects rough, chapped dry skin.
Shea butter has healing soothing, moisturizing and protecting effects. It helps protect against UV rays because of its content of cinnamic acid. Shea butter’s unsaponifiable fats help in cell regeneration, the healing of small wounds, dry and cracked skin, dermatitis, eczema, sunburn, burns and stretch marks.
Cocoa Butter contains natural antioxidants and provides a barrier that helps retain and restore the moisture in skin.
Castor Oil has beneficial properties as a humectant (drawing moisture to the skin). An excellent emollient, it also creates a protective barrier between the skin and harsh environment conditions.
Rose Hip Seed Oil helps reduce the signs of aging skin, especially fine lines around the eyes and mouth. It also reduces the drying effects of the sun and climate.  It is also helpful in healing burns, eczema, and blemishes. High in vitamins A, C & E.
Grape seed Oil is rich in flavonoids – phytochemicals which have antioxidant properties.  Antioxidants safeguard cells against free radicals. This can prevent numerous skin ailments, treats sun damage skin, and pollution effects. Grape seed is especially useful for skin types that do not absorb oils well, and it does not leave a greasy feeling. It is also wonderful for those with skin sensitivities because of its natural non-allergenic properties.
Vitamin E Oil works well on common skin irritations. This natural vitamin fights free radicals which cause aging of the skin, helps reduce inflammation and loss of firmness and elasticity.bigger_lip_balm-orange
Neroli on the skin helps to regenerate skin cells, is useful to prevent scar tissue, promotes smoother skin, and fights broken capillaries and wrinkles. Its scent is sweet, floral and citrus.
Peppermint Oil is used to relieve skin irritation and itchiness. It also helps to reduce skin redness where inflammation is present. It also relieves sunburn with its cooling effect. Helps also with mental fatigue.
Orange Oil is antiseptic, anti-depressant, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory. It is a sunny and radiant oil, bringing cheer and warmth to the mind helping people to relax and children to sleep. It will help with dull and oily skin conditions.

We are confident you will love this amazing formula and more importantly, your lips will love it.  Try it!  If you are not completely satisfied, you may return the product for a full refund.

Yarrow – An Epic Herb

In Homer’s epic poem, The Iliad, Achilles uses yarrow to treat his wounded comrades. Consequently its genus name is Achilles.  Following Achilles’ lead, the early Greeks used yarrow in battle and it has been known through history as the military herb, soldier’s wound wart and the knight’s milfoil. It is also used in Native American, Ayurvedic, and Chinese medical traditions.

The main oils in yarrow make it a fine herb for accelerating healing of cuts and bruises.  It is used as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent and it is especially good for soothing and rejuvenating hair follicles and problem scalps.

Shampoo_for_Healthier_HairYarrow is a hardy, easy to care for, and versatile perennial herb with fern-like leaves and colorful, flat-topped flower clusters.  It is native to Europe and Asia and naturalized in North America and throughout the world.  It grows 2 to 4 feet tall and is a durable plant tolerating dry spells and low soil fertility.  The plant blooms in mid-summer into the fall.

Yarrow is safe for most adults.  It may cause drowsiness and should not be used orally when pregnant.

While you may not be dealing with king Agamemnon, Hector, or Helen, you still needn’t scratch your head over how to moisturize, soothe, and stimulate your hair and scalp. You will find yarrow in these AfterGlow products: Herbal Infusion Shampoo and Herbal Infusion Hair Treatment and Conditioner.
