The Discover With Marta “Get Ready For Summer” collection of deluxe samples is shipping to members (if you are not yet a member, become one for only $12 a month or $144 a year and you’ll get all sorts of perks, discounts and (coming very soon!) your member-only website, as well as a new collection every 8 weeks). With this exciting collection, you’ll be able to get ready for summer from head to toe:

Get rid of winter skin and anticipate a summer glow with the exfoliating body bar from Reviva. This is a full size (4.5oz) Reviva Labs Seaweed Soap All Vegetable Bar with natural, anti-aging ingredients. Seaweed grains and walnut shell powder provide the exfoliating action, alongside antioxidant seaweed extracts and blue-green algae.

Peptide-files will want to get their hands on Skin Nutrition Dynamic Wrinkle Reducer with three powerful peptides: Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Tripeptide-1 and Tripeptide-10 Citrulline. They are supposed to diminish the appearance of both static and dynamic (expression) wrinkles to help improve elasticity, suppleness and tone. There’s also olive, baobab, rose hip and blackcurrant oils to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Truth In Aging reviewers reported that a “little goes a long way”, the skin “feels firm” and that it is “truly an explicit luxury”.

Truth In Aging Hair Vitality Complex is the very first product to be launched by Truth In Aging. It is a hair serum that uses copper peptides and vitamin B as the active ingredients to help healthy hair growth and reduce shedding. I created it especially for women with thinning hair, especially due to hormonal change at menopause and post-partum (although men can use it too).  Hair Vitality Complex has been in the making for over a year. I wanted to perfect a product to help healthy hair growth that would be pleasant to use, contain no nasties and, above all work.

Yarok Feed Your Do Styling Whip keeps your hair in shape without all the chemical gunk in most styling creams. Yarok makes seriously good hair products. For a start, there is absolutely nothing not to like in (in fact they pride themselves on being safe for pregnant women, cancer survivors etc). The preservatives are all essential oils such as sage and rosemary. Then there is plenty to love amongst the botanicals. Yarok’s Feed Your Do Styling Whip is a hair paste great for adding texture to hair, incorporating refreshing ingredients such as lemon peel and peppermint.

Kahina Antioxidant Mask leaves the face looking refreshed and glowing, as if it had just had been given a healthy meal. Its exfoliating effects are really very gentle, leaving this mask suitable to use multiple times a week. Kahina's Antioxidant Mask incorporates its signature argan oil, aspen (populous tremuloides), and antioxidants including rosemary, acai and pomegranate. Kahina's mask is a good product for almost all age groups: It is ideal for 30-somethings looking to start with a good antioxidant and brightening product, and has enough moisturizing from the various oils to help through the decades to 60s, 70s and beyond.

Hydropeptide SPF 30 Anti-wrinkle Skin Enhancing UV Protection is not your mother’s sunscreen. This is a smart idea - a multitasking sunscreen and instant complexion enhancer with some long term benefits. It does a good job of protection, and over several weeks will smooth the texture of the skin and reduce redness. There are some good botanicals here that soothe (calendula) and provide antioxidants (green tea and acai). Even sensitive, breakout prone people report they can use this and it’s a favorite of our contributor, Nisha.

Kahina Argan Oil is organic and rides out the argan oil hype with a quality product rich in antioxidants and vitamins, and fatty acids from well sourced argan oil. Non-irritating for sensitive skin, argan oil prevents moisture loss, calm irritation and inflammation, and combats flaky skin. Non-greasy and easily absorbed.

    I am sending my reviews for products I am testing and can't locate the Reviva Labs All-Natural Seaweed Soap. I just love being part of Discover with Marta. It is so fun to get the box and open and explore everything.
