Symptoms of Menopause? Get Energy and Vitality with Amberen! - Review & Giveaway - 3 WINNERS! - ends 6/20 US

I received complimentary Amberen to facilitate with this post from Amberen.com.


If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I have been touted the wonders of Amberen.  Taking these two little 100% natural supplements daily have really turned my life around.  It has been five years since my hysterectomy that left me with just one ovary to do the job of two.  There are many times that that one ovary just doesn't do the job every month, and some symptoms of menopause came forth.  My hormones just weren't working anymore, and I felt that I was headed officially down Menopause Lane.

Oh, those fluctuating hormones!  My one little ovary is trying its best to help supply my body with hormones, but sometimes a month may come when it just doesn't do its job.  On those months, my mood flattens, heat becomes so bothersome, and sometimes night sweats.  I just craved cold.


All of this has changed since I started taking
Amberen!
 
I have now been taking Amberen for two months straight, and still have one month to go.  Since taking Amberen, I have felt so much better!  I cannot believe how much energy and vitality that has been restored to me.  Even when I feel the effects of allergies, my mood is still good.  I also find that our hot desert temperatures don't bother me as much, and I don't need to be sitting in from of the evaporative coolers all day long. I am sleeping more soundly and I am definitely less irritable than what I was before.


Amberen is a 100% natural supplement that eases the symptoms of menopause.   I have already written about Amberen: Amberen - Beginning My Journey to Hormonal Balance - Review to find out what I hoped to achieve with taking Amberen, and Acheiving Hormonal Balance with Amberen Part 2 to find out more about the ingredients in Amberen.  


Amberen also helps with losing that stubborn weight that a woman can gain after 40.  I have lost a total of ten pounds!  It would have been more, but I try to stay indoors when it gets to windy here due to my allergies. 

Are you a little older and may be feeling the effects of menopause?  Read up on Amberen some more, and you may just find that it is just what you need.  Perhaps your mother or grandmother is still feeling the effects of menopause.  My mother was in her late sixties before she stopped having hot flashes, sweats, and just feeling blah and witchy.   Tell her about the relief, the energy, and the vitality that she can achieve with Amberen. 


Say Goodbye to Symptoms of Menopause
Say Hello to Hormonal Balance


 Feel Better with Amberen

There is no reason to be hot in flashes or feeling witchy and blah when there is Amberen to bring you back to feeling sweet, energetic, and have more vitality!


Amberen has been clinically tested and show to work!  I can testify to that.  When you buy it, it comes with a 30 day money back guarantee!  A full 90 day supply of Amberen ($99.98) comes with a Free Weight Loss Guide, a Free Amberen Diet Menu, and Free Consulations.


Here's where you can start your own journey to hormonal balance and restore your energy and vitality: Amberen.com.  You can also find Amberen on Facebook and Twitter.


Three winners will each receive a 30 day supply of Amberen.  Perhaps you, yourself, has no need for this, but do you know someone who needs some relief from menopausal symptoms?  Enter to win it for them!  Thank you, Amberen, for this giveaway!  This giveaway will end on June 20, 2013, and is open to US residents only.

Dermagist Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin - Review & Giveaway - Ends 6/18 US

I received the Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin for this review from Dermagist.com.


My budding astro-physicist daughter, who will be heading off to the University of Oklahoma to start grad school in September, has a terrible acne problem.  My husband and I believe it is from all the stress that she has been under during her time as an undergrad.  She worked tirelessly to get good grades, and she sorta let her face suffer as a result.

I was pleased to all ends when Dermagist contacted me to do a review of their products.  I was familiar with their product line, and was impressed by what I saw.  Dermagist very kindly sent us the Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin.  This  two-step system was designed to soothe and diminish the look of blemishes and the redness.



What is so different from Dermagist's Clarigying System for Acne-Prone Skin to what you fine in stores?  NO Benzoyl Peroxide!  Benzoyl peroxide irritated the heck out of my face when I was a teen, and my kids are no different.  This was one of the reasons that my daughter agreed to try Dermagist's Acne Clarifying System.

When I told my daughter about the other ingredients, she was full of hope for her skin.  The Clarifying system for Acne Prone Skin is filled with ingredients that I have heard only good things about: Resveratrol, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, Aloe, and Chamomile.  Resveratrol is reportedly very effective at fighting acne, and is has anti-aging and soothing properties to help skin look young and smooth.


The first step of this system is the Detoxifying Cleanser with Resveratrol.  Besides the powerhouse Resveratrol for an ingredient, is also has Chamomile which soothes the skin, Shea Butter to protect the skin, Aloe Vera to moisturize, and Tangerine Oil to help the skin absorb nutrients and keep the skin from getting too dry or too oily.


The second step is the Clarifying Cream for Acne-Prone Skin.  This also contains the skin benefits of Resveratrol, Aloe, Chamomile, and Shea Butter, and also has a few extras to help keep those breakouts at a minimum: Vitamin C; Niacinamide; and Provitamin B5.  This product's objective is to get rid of the dirt and oil that is associated with blemishes.  It will also calm and soothe the skin.


My daughter has been using this 2-Step Treatment for about a month now.  There is a slight improvement, but not as much as I was hoping for.  Her case of acne is quite severe, and I love that I do see improvement.  Nothing so far has even done anything to improve her acne but this system from Dermagist.  She does plan on getting her face lasered after she earns her doctorate in physics.


Does your teen suffer from acne-prone skin?  Most teens don't have such a scenario as my daughter's, and would very likely get much better results from Dermagist's Clarifying System for Acne-Prone Skin.   Find out more about this Acne Clarifying System.

With many thanks to Dermagist, one of my readers will win the Clarifying System for Acne Prone Skin, which contains both the Detoxifying Cleanser for Acne-prone Skin, and the Jar of Clarifying Cream - a 45 Day Supply! Worth $79.99!  This giveaway is open to US residents only, and will end on June 18, 2013.
