WOMEN ONLY Event: Elana Skincare Giveaway!

Dr. Lawrence Presant is quick to share his passion-- phlebology-- the diagnosis and treatment of vein disorders. After years and years practicing and teaching, Dr. Presant decided to share his desire to create skin care products where all the ingredients are beneficial to skin. Learning that many popular products contain cheap, artificial or potentially harmful ingredients, such as petroleum distillates, suspected carcinogens or xenoestrogens increased his resolve to formulate safe, effective products. At the same time, he wanted to incorporate much higher amounts of key ingredients for maximum value and effectiveness. The end result of his research was Elana Skincare.
"Elana Natural Skin Care products have been formulated to make your skin feel healthy, balanced and rejuvenated, leaving your skin with a radiant glow.
*Elana is an ancient, melodious word for tree*
It is said that the branches of the Elana tree reached out to bring delight to all who viewed it and shade to all who needed comfort and respite from a relentless world.
The soft, supple, shimmering leaves of the Elana tree inspired joy and calm.
The spirit of the Elana tree has been infused into a natural line of skin care products that will nurture your mind, body, and soul.
Step under Elana’s welcoming branches, and experience a luscious, botanical blend
designed to uplift your skin.
Elana Natural Skin Care products are rich in natural ingredients created with loving care for you."

I was happy to try out Elana's Foaming Cleanser and Anti Oxidant Firming Complex Moisturizer. I loved the soft scent and gentle cleansing properties of the cleanser. It cleaned and refreshed nicely. 
The moisturizer left my face feeling great. Soft and dewy, but not overly oily. With moisturizer, there has to be a good compromise of moisture and oil-- Elana has it! Both are reasonably priced at $27 and $65 dollars.

I loved that each product was Paraben free, propylene gyycol free and hypoallergenic. Plus there is no Phalathes or petroleum distillate.
