Product Review: GRATiAE Organic Skin Care Products
At the Florida Mall in Orlando, Florida, there was a booth selling GRATiAE Organic Skin Care Products. I have never heard of the company but I know a salesperson when I see one; I tried to run away before she bombarded me with unknown products and "so called" cheap prices. But when she yelled,"Do you wear your nails natural?" and I turned around to see if I heard her correctly. She came towards me with a magical nail buffer that shines your natural nail instantly. I fell inlove with the product and she trapped me as she guided me towards the booth. At the booth she told me $25 for the whole nail set and I was opened to the price but then she showed another product. It was a skin exfoliating cream and that interested my mother and her eyes light up when the saleswoman said "The products are natural and made from the dead sea in Israel." I was uninterested and I assumed her words were a lie and the product was a hoax; it had to be. As I stood there and gave the sales woman a straight face saying "You're not getting any money out of me" she puts the cream on my skin. In my mind I screamed; I have eczema on my hands and it was burning slightly. I told the saleswomen about eczema and she responded "Yes, it's good for eczema." I felt the lie again. How does she know? Everyone tells you what they want you to hear. She sprays water on my hand as well as my mother's. We rub our hands spreading the crystals and exfoliating; the burning subsides and I thank God. My mom is excited and I'm bored! In my mind I say it doesn't work for me but for my mother it's a miracle and her hands are smooth. The velvety lotion along with the exfoilating crystals creating a smooth clear skin tone which is just what my mom was looking for, so she ask for prices. I give my mother the "don't fall into the sales spell" look. The saleswoman says, "$50 and I'll give you the hand lotion for free." We gave her the money; she thanked us and said we could get a refund if the product is unsatisfactory.
I've used the products for two days straight and I know that's not long enough to give a accurate review but I know the changes in my body. The exfoliating cream gets the job done and makes the skin smooth all over but it is strong if you have cuts and scrapes. The is a sea salt based exfoliate and it is only used on the body since it's too potent for the face. It does not leave the body stripped of oils because it has oils within it such as Jojoba and Sweet Almond oil. These oils are very light and they have a non-greasy feel. Great for after shaving and giving your legs a smooth feel all over!
