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.

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.
One lucky reader will win a Elana Foaming Cleanser and an Anti-Oxidant Firming Complex Moisturizer!
