Quality Encapsulations Omega 3 Fish Oil Supplements Review

Quality Encapsulations Omega 3 Fish Oil Review
We all know the wonderful benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, but often times we aren't consuming enough of these beneficial ingredients with our daily intake of food. And that's where supplements come in. I was given the opportunity to review a fish oil supplement 3 weeks ago in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of the product. The product comes from the brand Quality Encapsulations.

Quality Encapsulation's Omega 3 Fish Oil is highly concentrated with 1500 mg of rich omega-3 fatty acids, brain and heart healthy 600 mg of DHA and 800 mg of EPA and is a highly antioxidant blend of the three. Made from Chilean Fish Oil, this capsule contains no GMO's and my personal favorite, it has NO aftertaste!

Omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA are known to improve cardiovascular health, improve the immune system, promotes better brain function and circulation and lowers bad cholesterol levels. They are vital to proper human health due to past human diets rich in foods containing these Omega three. Supplementing when we don't consume healthy amounts of the three is highly recommended.

I've supplemented for many years, and have had great luck finding a good products. However, most often, the really good products also come with a really high price tag. Fortunately, Quality Encapsulations offers a bottle of their blend containing 60 softgels, a one month supply, for a mere $15 on Amazon. This price is incredibly reasonable! And did I mention there is NO aftertaste? I highly recommend this product for those of you looking for a high quality Omega-3 fish oil supplement.

Leven Rose Rosehip Oil Review

A few weeks ago, I received this product at a discount for my honest and unbiased feedback. To be honest, I'd never heard of this type of product before. But since I enjoy learning about natural products and appreciate even more getting to review them, I was excited to try Leven Rose's Rosehip Oil on my own skin.

Let's face it, I'm not getting any younger. The signs of my aging are beginning to take hold in the form of grey hair and “smile lines” around my eyes and mouth. And while I plan to be comfortable aging, it's still nice to find a product that not only leaves my skin feeling refreshed after each use but can rest assured is non-toxic and safe to use.

Leven Rose's Rosehip Oil comes from rosehip seeds cultivated in the mountains of Chile. No pesticides or fertilizers are used to cultivate this oil, keeping it free from toxins and 100% organic. Leven Rose keeps their rosehip oil is cold pressed and unrefined to maintain this product's wonderful properties. It's also considered a “dry oil”, meaning your body absorbs it immediately so your skin isn't left feeling greasy.

Rosehip Oil is typically used for the following:
  • to diminish wrinkles and fine lines
  • to help with cracked, dry skin
  • to use as a nighttime moisturizer
  • to restore cuticles
  • to even skin tone/color

I've used this product every night as part of my bedtime routine. Following cleansing my skin from the harsh chemicals from the day, I applied about 5 drops of oil onto the tips of my fingers then gently massaged it into my skin. I began to apply it around my eyes, where my “smile lines” are prevalent. I also start here because I tend to have dark circles around my eyes and feel that by massaging the rosehip oil in, it's helping with blood and moisture circulation. I then finished by rubbing the remainder oil into the rest of my face and neck.

And my final opinion on this product is that I love it! I noticed immediately when I awoke that my skin felt more moisturized then usual, but without any feeling there was too much on my skin. In fact, I never once felt that my skin was greasy after using the rosehip oil on my face. Leven Rose's Rosehip Oil is definitely worth trying. It costs a mere $14 for a 1 fluid ounce bottle, and for an organic and non-toxic product, it's a steal of a deal! I also imagine this bottle will last quite a while. I've used it about 14 days and have probably only used 10%. Give it a try! You won't be disappointed.
