Before and Afters…

I love sharing our before and after posts…it is so exciting and rewarding to see people skin heal of acne, scarring, age or sun spots from SMD Cosmetic products.  Here are some that came through today on FB!

Post number 1:

OK, my sweet daughter is such a sport for letting me share her before and after pics! THIS DRASTIC TRANSFORMATION HAS TAKEN PLACE IN TWO WEEKS!!! We are so thrilled with the results of the SMD Cosmetic’s AloGel Skin Perfecting Botanical and the Replenishing Volcanic Ash Mask from Fenix that she isn’t bothered by her teenage acne anymore!! This hit her out of nowhere! We tried everything! Who would have thought? The partners of SMD both experienced this miraculous transformation (adult acne) with this product and told me that I had to try this on her. It is FABULOUS! This gel is all natural and non toxic. And, it’s a rare aloe formula that absorbs into the skin so you can apply makeup over it. She puts this on morning and night. And the mask by Fenix draws out impurities and is also toxin free. She is thrilled and so am I!!! The direct links are below. If you have a membership you get 25% off all of your orders! www.shopmkc.com/carolinebryan

Soothe, Tone and Restore Moisture for Glowing Summer Skin

Luxury Korean Beauty Gel Naturally Replenishes and Restores

It’s irresistible. The warmth of summer and the sensation of sun-kissed skin call to you. Still, there’s a cost. The sun drains moisture, leaving skin dry and vulnerable. SMD Cosmetics, the company that recently began sharing its Korean beauty secrets in the U.S., has a solution: “SMD’s AloGel Skin Perfecting Botanical.” An exclusive, premium aloe vera gel formulation that combines the anti-aging qualities of aloe with a unique and patented blend of powerful herbal antioxidants to help soothe, tone and restore moisture while giving you that radiant summer glow.

SMD Cosmetics (www.SMDcosmetics.com), from South Korea, has been the leader in innovative, natural and effective skin care products for decades, and only now is
releasing its luxurious products in the United States. SMD collections and unique
formulations are based on 2,000 years of Korean herbal skin care wisdom, which has
become the envy of the world in the art of defying age and retaining pristine skin.

Toni G., Makeup Artist for Angelina Jolie, puts her trust in SMD’s collection. “I’m very health conscious and aware that what you put on your body is as important as what you
put in your body,” she says. “So, when I discovered this natural skincare brand that was
not only good for my skin but fulfills its promises, I knew it was the real deal.”

SMD’s AloGel Skin Perfecting Botanical serum is a unique formula that takes the
already exalted status of Korean skincare, to the next level. AloGel’s premium formula
nourishes skin with over 75 beneficial nutrients that immediately help erase the
appearance of dry or irritated skin brought on by sun exposure. Some of the exclusive
natural ingredients in the AloGel are:

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, commonly known as aloe vera, is synonymous with soothing sunburns. This powerful and nutrient dense gel is at the core of the formula that reduces the appearance of dry skin by restoring suppleness. Vitamins C, E and beta carotene absorb directly and quickly for immediate results.

Morus Alba Bark Extract, or mulberry, is loaded with antioxidants known for brightening properties that produce smoothness and even tones.

Perilla Ocymoides Leaf Extract has one of the densest levels of Omega 3 fatty acids of any natural substance at 54 to 64 percent. The natural oil helps soothes sensitive skin and minimizes pores while helping to clean out clogged pores.

Wild Sesame Leaf Extract is a natural antioxidant that absorbs into skin and boosts energy to rejuvenate cells.

Propolis extract provides an antibacterial quality in addition to its antioxidant
properties to build skin health.

Mulberry root extract improves skin tone and protects and soothes skin
tone.

Ingredients are everything. Bloomberg News recently reported, “No evidence of Aloe
Vera found in the Aloe Vera at Walmart, CVS,” which should be concerning to
consumers expecting to use the soothing botanical gel on their skin. 1 SMD’s AloGel
Skin Perfecting Botanical serum delivers on unmatched quality. SMD Cosmetics is
“nature perfected,” because their products use the power of nature’s ingredients
combined with the wisdom of ancient herbal science. Their advanced, patented
technology gives us the difference of innovative, active components that make SMD’s
products so different from anything else on the market.

Men and children may also benefit from AloGel. It may help to soothe skin after some
fun in the sun, and it helps to prevent the look of dry, dehydrated, tired skin after
summer travel. AloGel can be used after cleansing and before moisturizing to enhance
any skincare regimen. Keep it in the refrigerator and apply cold AloGel to a clean face to
maximize absorption, minimize pores and restore a youthful radiant suppleness to your
skin.

Celebrity makeup artist for the hit TV show “This Is Us,” Elizabeth Hoel-Chang,
understands the importance of natural Korean skincare. “It’s not only about great skin,
but also giving people the confidence and knowledge of what they are putting on their
skin, a healthy, nutritional element to help preserve themselves,” she says. “In a day
and age of snake oil tonics and empty promises, this SMD Cosmetics line is the miracle
and truth people need to know about and have the ability to get it for themselves
because they deserve it!”

Alogel

I am always looking for a new anti-aging and antioxidant skin care item and I love a job that allows me to try all different ones.  Alogel is super lightweight and I have been applying it in the morning and evening to my face and neck.  It has a really fresh scent that I actually look forward to!  This is ancient Korean Skin Care and all these products contain herbal and natural ingredients instead of all the harsh and confusing chemicals.  So many additional products to choose from.  I really feel like my skin is getting back on track from the drying and trying winter.  For the upcoming summer heat, I am going to pop this into the refrigerator so that it is chilled and ready to soothe my sun-kissed skin!  I can actually feel the extracts doing their thing; skin is brighter and healthier in just a couple of days use.  This bottle is around $30; check it out now so you are ready for the warm weather on its way!

What is in your Aloe Vera Gel?!

According to my latest discovery…the aloe vera gel many Americans buy to soothe damaged skin contains no evidence of aloe vera at all!

“Samples of store-brand aloe gel purchased at national retailers Wal-Mart, Target and CVS showed no indication of the plant in various lab tests. The products all listed aloe barbadensis leaf juice — another name for aloe vera — as either the No. 1 ingredient or No. 2 after water.” (Bloomberg 22 November 2016)

The FDA is not monitoring cosmetics so that means we basically have to trust what is put on the packages at the stores…yikes!

“Aloe’s three chemical markers — acemannan, malic acid and glucose — were absent in the tests for Wal-Mart, Target and CVS products conducted by a lab hired by Bloomberg News. The three samples contained a cheaper element called maltodextrin, a sugar sometimes used to imitate aloe. The gel that’s sold at another retailer, Walgreens, contained one marker, malic acid, but not the other two. That means the presence of aloe can’t be confirmed or ruled out, said Ken Jones, an independent industry consultant based in Chapala, Mexico.” (Bloomberg 22 November 2016)

Another issue we looked into was the percentages used in Aloe and how important they really are. Most of people consider the higher percentage of Aloe, the better… and undoubtedly buy it. However, you can’t truly ever know how much aloe there is in it because the aloe comes from Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract.  Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract is from aloe soaked in alcohol. So there is water, alcohol, and fragrance in Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract. When we buy Aloe gel, the thing we should care about is what is in the product not a percentage.

We can extract Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Water and so on from Aloe. Among them,  Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice has the highest purity and high-enriched ingredient.

And SMD Cosmetics alogel contains Aloe Barbadensis Leaf juice!!

So, I can proudly say our alogel has much stronger soothing and moisturizing effects than any other alogel.
