Forever in our Hearts

As we all know, today marks the 14th anniversary of that fateful day when our entire country watched as the Twin Towers fell. We will never forget the way it felt, like our entire country was frozen in time.

9:11:01

On September 11, 2001 I woke up like any other day. I was getting ready for work and finishing plans for our upcoming wedding with my mom…then we turned on the TV and time stood still. I so vividly remember feeling like the world was rushing all around but we were frozen in that moment. You know in movies when the character is standing still and the rest of the world is almost like flashes of light rushing all around…thats how I felt. When I got to work we just stood there watching and crying as the towers fell. It was like nothing I had ever seen or felt in my entire young adult life. I remember crying until I literally couldn’t cry any more, praying for the families of the lost or missing, praying for the NYC police and firemen {My brother is LACF}.

Remember this song, {This is particular YouTube video is a compilation of a lot of emotional photos}

It may seem weird but I feel like this and many others songs gave our country some much need morale and hope.

Then on May 2, 2011 our country took a deep breath of relief.

Today join me and take time to reflect on how far country has come since that day and pray for those families who no longer have husbands, wives, daddies, mommies, grandpas, grandmas, sisters, brothers, friends, teachers, or co workers..today is going to be roughest on them and they need to know our country loves and supports them 14 years later. Lost but never forgotten, forever in our hearts.

Lindi Skin Care Review

reimgo
When I was approached to review products by Lindi Skin Care I was excited, but after doing some research about the product and company I was also extremely impressed.
Lindi Skin: Skincare On A Mission
We created Lindi Skin in 2003 as the first complete Skincare line designed specifically for the unique needs of people with the most compromised skin. Whether you are undergoing cancer treatment, dealing with sensitive skin, or just want luxurious skincare, our safe, gentle, clinically-proven line of skincare is unlike anything you’ve ever tried.

 

lindi
Did you know that these skin care products were originally formulated for people who are going through Chemo, Radiation and serious illnesses? Wow that is awesome! I’m sure every single one of you reading this has known someone battling cancer. We all know cancer is a horrific and relentless disease and unfortunately it effects the body both inside and out resulting in extremly sensitive, horribly dry and cracked skin. I have witnessed this first hand with family, friends and children in my life who are battling cancer, so this was defiantly something that I wanted to try out with the hopes of recommending it to family and friends currently battling. Lindi Skin Care sent me a beautiful assortment of products! Here is what I received!

 

facewash
This face wash is extremely gentle and is a fantastic alternative to soap. It helps your skin get optimal pH balance. This face wash removes all traces of dirt and makeup and afterwards your skin doesn’t feel tight and dry it actually feels smooth, totally moisturized. It doesn’t break my skin out or irritates it which is awesome because I have extra extremely sensitive and dry skin and almost everything irritates it, but this has done a great job! When I first use the face wash I was caught off guard because it is a very watery wash. This really isn’t a big deal at all,  I’m just used to the really thick washes and with this it comes out as a liquid rather then a dollop of wash. With that being said I really do like it. It doesn’t really have a smell, which I’m totally ok with, I actually prefer not to have fragrances in my face washes so this is just perfect! I used this with my Clarisonic and it work beautifully leaving my skin silky smooth and hydrated {it of course works great with a wash cloth or your hands} Lindi Face Wash $22

 

serum
This serum is formulated with replete with botanicals, antioxidants and vitamins AND the highest concentration of Lindi Skin’s proprietary LSA Complex (R)!  This is my absolute favorite skin care product thus far, I absolutely love this serum, it smells amazing, it feels amazing! I love using it at night before I go to bed. I like putting it on in the morning before I put on makeup, my face primers and makeup go on beautifully and smoothly. A little bit goes a long way just one pump covers and moisturizes my entire face, so this bottle may seem small however it is going to last a long time! Don’t let the word “serum” scare you this is not oily or oimtmenty at all, as soon as it absorbs your skin it is so smooth it literally feels like silk. I don’t know what it is with my skin but honestly I rarely see results, however that is not the case with this face serum. The morning after using it for the first time I was stunned when I looked in the mirror and my skin was super soft, my skin tone was pretty even out {I have very red blotchy skin and this counteracted that} my skin beautifully smooth. Oh I don’t want to forget to say this is a lavender face serum and you definitely smell and feel the lavender which I absolutely love! It is like getting a spa treatment at home. PS: there is also a citrus version of this face serum!  Lindi Face Serum is $40 in Lavender and Lindi Face Serum in Citrus.

 

eyehydro
This little gem was designed to smooth any dryness around the sensitive eye area. It’s a nutrient rich gel also helps reduce the appearance of puffiness and aches improves your skin tone. The Eye Hydrator is very similar to the face Serum it goes on extremely smooth and makes your under eyes feel like silk! I absolutely love and adore this. I have extremely sensitive eyes and the Eye Hydrator has caused zero issues at all! It smooths out the dry area that I get under my eyes on my eyelids and next to my eyes and it really has reduced puffiness! I have seen this firsthand, I used it at night and in the morning when I woke up usually I would have had puffy dark circles and I did not. With this eye hydrator a teeny tiny bit goes a very very long way, when I open the jar of that eye hydrator I didn’t even dip my finger into the pot I used what was on the foil seal and I had more than enough for both eyes so that gives you an idea of how teeny of an amount you need. Lindi Eye Hydrator $30

 

lip
This is a compact little jar contains some pretty great stuff! It has a fresh minty feel {Not a burning mint feel that so many lip balms have} The Lip Balm is perfect for the upcoming fall and winter months when the weather conditions can be really harsh on your lips {the winter is a killer on my lips} This is perfect just to throw in your purse or in your pocket if you’re going for a hike, walk or run and I absolutely love how tiny and compacted is for that very reason! I put on the lip balm about five hours ago and I have eaten and drink and as I write this my lips are still smooth and soft which I think really tells you how good of a lip balm this is. Pssst, this works great as a cuticle cream as well! I don’t know about you but my cuticle don’t thrive during the colder months, this baby will be a life saver!  Lindi Lip Balm $10

 

More than just skincare:
Lindi Skin Care offers so much more than just these 4 products, there is a large range of skin care products:

As I mentioned above, the likelihood that we know someone who is battling cancer, going through chemo or radiation is pretty high. Most of us know that feeling when you find out a family member or friend is diagnosed with Cancer…what you say? Every single time I have been faced with that question I NEVER know what to say or do. I love that Lindi offers Chemo Gifts and Radiation Gifts. These would make perfect gifts for that special person in you life who is fighting for their life. This is both heartfelt and something they will truly use. Maybe we don’t know the right words to say but a gift of Lindi skin care can do so much! Also check out the Lindi Chemo Skincare Collection & the Lindi Radiation Skincare Collection.

Here’s a few other things that makes Lindi Skin so great!

  • No acids
  • No peeling agents
  • No exfolients

Battling a debilitating disease or not I highly recommend Lindi Skincare.
