{giveaway} RAW Natural Beauty & iQ Derma Gift Pack ($175 value)

I love trying new products that make me feel (and look) better!  So when the DermStore offered me the opportunity to try a few of their best sellers, I was extremely excited!

I am really loving the RAW Natural Beauty Active Veil w/ SPF 18 and the Mineral Glow  -- I am especially fond of how velvety my skin feels after brushing on these mineral.  The fact that there is a built-in SPF and it gives you an airbrushed effect is a big bonus for me!

I must admit, though, I was a little skeptical of the iQ anti-cellulite products since I have tried firming creams in the past.  Now, I will just go on record saying the simple truth:  I have cellulite.  I am about 20 lbs. underweight and still it's there, so don't feel alone. I would LOVE nothing more to get rid of it, but alas it just won't disappear.

One of the products I was sent to try is iQ's Firmaceuticals Firming Body Gel, which has "proven results to decrease the appearance of cellulite."  At $80 for a 6.75fl. oz. (ouch!), one would hope this would work.  I tried it for approx. 2 weeks applying it to my, uhh, "problem areas" and I have to admit.... my skin was way more tone and tight!  I still noticed some 'bumps' but overall I was shocked at how this tightened and diminished the cellulite back there.  I actually started to notice a little difference after about a week.  I have to be honest, I am not sure I'd pay $80 for this - but, then again, it costs way less than lipo. ;)

Another great iQ product they sent me was the Firmaceuticals Nutritional Supplement Pack, which "includes a 30-day supply of individually wrapped supplements. These supplements are formulated with vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and thermogenics to create and maintain healthy skin while assisting the metabolism."  I have been taking these for about 2.5 weeks now and I feel great.  I haven't noticed a major change in my metabolism but I tend to have a pretty quick one to begin with.  These are great, pre-packaged daily vitamins and the whole kit will last you the whole month.  You can read the ingredients here.
