Manomai Around the Clock Facial Serum
I had the pleasure to win a giveaway from Mary at letsstrikeapose.co.uk. She had the brand Manomai which uses your specific blood type with a serum to match. It is based on the "Eat right for your Type" diet and has specific ingredients in the serum that correspond to your blood type. The information is quite interesting and I remember seeing this diet quite some time back. I know that some of my diabetic patients have done really well with this type of diet.
Manomai means: mano-mind/spirit, mai-succeed. Succeed through mind and spirit is the approach the company has towards skincare. They say this about the serum: "This light restorative night and day serum keeps skin soft, supple and hydrated, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles." Who doesn't want that!!! The ingredients are all natural and not tested on animals: -certified organic argan oil, -olive oil, -jojoba oil,-shea butter, -vitamin E. Each serum has specific ingredients tailored to your blood type.
A- Malt and Green Tea Extract, Cherry Extract
AB- Cucumber and Cherry Extract
B-Shitake Mushroom, Green Tea Extract
O-Seaweed and Guava Leaf Extract
The serum is very light with a faint medicinal smell, absorbs quickly and I have found that it works beautifully in the morning under makeup. I have only been using it a little over a week and I like how my skin feels, it will take a little longer for me to see if there is any long term effects on my fine lines!
Skin is the largest organ in the body and it is directly nourished by the blood. Makes a lot of sense and when I look at my skincare from this premise I have some information to work with. Do check out their website www.manomai.com and if you like organic and cruelty free products as well as working specifically with your blood type then you may be very interested in this line.
Thank you Mary for the giveaway. Check her blog out ladies, she has a blog that I love to read. Do check out the website for the Manomai product and let me know if you get the serum and how it works for you! Sherry
