Going Green: Skincare that Goes the Distance! Marula Oil: The Leakey Collection and Le Mieux!

It’s summer and your skin is going to take a beating. No matter where you live, whether it’s hot and dry, hot and humid or dry and cold, because it’s summer and you are wearing less clothing and outside more often, there is a toll on your skin. Here are two NATURAL products that will go the distance in helping your skin out by nurturing and nourishing it with great ingredients.

Marula Oil: The Leakey Collection
You have heard of Argan Oil and the wonderful things it can do. Well move over Argan Oil and check out the newer “big brother” oil, Marula Oil

With higher level of antioxidants & omega 9 acid than argan or grape seed oil, Marula assists in providing more advanced protection against environmental stressors & free radicals, which can lead to wrinkles, fine lines & other signs of premature aging. Light & powerful, this highly prized oil leaves skin soft, supple with increased elasticity and firmness for healthy, beautiful and age defying radiance. Marula oil can improve skin hygiene by reducing skin surface bacteria.
Suitable for all skin types, independent lab testing has shown that Marula Oil contains more powerful antioxidants than Argan Oil.

Katy and Phillip Leakey and Dr. Ashton Kaidi came together over their shared belief in the powerful healing properties of pure Marula Oil. Dr. Kaidi witnessed the healing benefits on the skin of his cancer patients, and the Leakeys saw the benefits in the lives of women and children in rural East Africa.

This is an amazing product to be used on face, body and even a tiny bit on the ends of your hair. Whatever Argan Oil was being used for– this will do the job better. I love this product. I love how it sinks into my skin and I use any other thin serums and then seal it in with this product. Talk about a change in the skintone, texture and just the sheer softness of the skin! Your makeup will glide on and you won’t need so much moisturizer during mid-day. Worth every penny– less is more!! A small puddle is all you need for your face. Use any excess on your cuticles or run your hands through your hair!


Another new organic skincare product on shelves is Le Mieux RX Complex Serum

While you probably have a moisturizer in your beauty routine, there is always room for an exceptional product — and it has to be in the area of anti-aging. Le Mieux has an ideal product that has a multiplicity of uses as well as ingredients. Le Mieux’s new Rx Complex Serum offers the smoothing and firming benefits of a great anti-aging serum

“Sun damage is really a challenge to reverse, especially if the damage is deep within the skin, but it can be significantly diminished by using a combination of treatments,” states Janel Luu, CEO of Le Mieux, a global beauty brand used by discerning women and top estheticians. “When it comes to treatments, I recommend ultrasonic facials using a new ‘spatula’-like wand that offers a very mild exfoliation to skin without irritating the epidermal layer, while being able to drive the serums deeper into the problem area of the skin, rendering a healthy glow. These treatments can be combined with powerful products like Le Mieux’s Vita C Serum or Rx Complex Serum, so they are working 24 hours a day in fighting the signs of aging. Or, these products can be used as a daily at-home treatment, providing an effective means of repairing sun damage over a period of time.”

The Rx Complex Serum contains:
Palmitoyl Oligopeptides (PO) which stimulate collagen, elastin and glucosaminoglycans production to reduce wrinkle depth by increasing hyaluronic acid and collagen production;

Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 which mimics the human body’s own mechanism to produce collagen, and helps to firm skin in the face and neck;

Acetyl Octapeptide-3, which reduces the appearance of deep wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, and helps to inhibit muscle contractions to smooth the appearance of skin;

Dipeptide Diaminobutryroyl Benzylamide Diacetate, which aids in muscle relaxation to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and lines;

soy peptides stimulate fibroblast proliferation and increase collagen and elastin synthesis, which retards the breaking down of collagen in skin;

MAP (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate) brightens skin and suppresses hyperpigmentation, and is absorbed into skin 31 percent faster than L-Ascorbic acid;

Tocotrienol is the most potent form of vitamin E with strong anti-oxidant properties and reverses damage from stress and UVA/UVB rays.

This is an amazing product. It’s got a slew of cosmeceutical peptides that deliver everything they promise. It’s light silky texture means that you don’t have to use a ton of it to get results. Less is more with this product. It works well with other Le Mieux products and other things in your regimen. Use it twice a day and see a difference in your skin unlike most products you have used. I have seen a difference in my skin texture and tone. It’s really an interesting product line. I have only tried the RX Serum — but do check out the rest of the line.
Rx Complex Serum is available in a 1-ounce retail size ($65.00). For more information about Le Mieux or the Rx Complex Serum, call 888-327-8188 or visit
