I Am Natural Store: sample reviews

Recently I was contacted by the lovely Rosanna from the online natural beauty shop, I Am Natural Store, asking if I would like to pick a couple products to try and review...I was ecstatic as Rosanna had just started stocking Vapour products and I was dying to try the Stratus Soft Focus Skin Perfector.
 I also chose to try the Ila Spa Face Oil for Glowing Skin, as I have heard great things about it.

I was sent a full size Vapour Soft Focus Skin Perfector, which I thought was extremely generous, and also makes me very happy for the simple fact that this is THE BEST SKIN PERFECTOR IN THE WORLD!!!! Everything from the smell, to the texture, from the ease of use to the subtle gold shimmer in it, makes this a must have product.
The first time I used this, I just squeezed a little on the back of my hand, and after rubbing it in, I spent the next few hours randomly sniffing my hand because the smell is incredibly delicious and sweet, and made me senses go wild. On my face, the product spreads and is absorbed easily, and leaves my face with the softest, most velvety feel, and makes an incredible base for both my Vapour liquid and stick foundations and my rms beauty "un"-cover up. This is a real winner in my book...another one to add to my 'never run out of this' list. I have even applied this product and added noting over the top, as even on it's own, it still makes skin look beautiful, granted it doesn't cover blemishes, which it doesn't claim to, but the glowing goddess look is more than enough for me.

  The Ila Spa Face Oil for Glowing Skin is a truly luxurious product, I haven't noticed a dramatic change in my skin as I didn't use it every single day, but I did notice that if I applied it at night, I would wake up with such soft and plump skin, which is impossible not to love. This oil is a blend of the ultimate in skin nourishing ingredients, with Argan oil and Rosehip oil as the two main ingredients.  The only thing about this product that I am unsure about is the scent...it has such a potent, intoxicating mix of oils that it is hard to figure out if I like it or not. It is not a bad smell, just very strong and i tend to be sensitive to strong scents, but if that is not an issue for you then you might just love this. 

$105.00 for 30ml
