Celebrate Mother's Day with Z Mei

Country Mouse, City Mouse

Since beginning this blog over two years ago, I am continuously amazed by how generous some companies are, and how appreciative they are to the bloggers who work with them. Then I came in contact with Z Mei, who totally wowed me - not just with sending me their full product line, but, also the fact that I am thoroughly enjoying each and every product they sent!

Z Mei Skin Therapy System combines the best of modern technology with more than 2000 years of Oriental natural healing. Formulated by Dr. Janet Zand and David Wood, Z Mei offers the safest and most effective skin care system available. (At prices much lower than comparative department store products)

Z Mei products help to:

Rejuvenate the skin at the deepest levels
Nourish and revitalize the skin
Normalize skin tone
Restore the skin's moisture
Repair damaged tissue
Reduce puffiness, fine lines and wrinkles

As I approach forty years old, I've come to realize my days of laziness when it comes to skin and hair care must be put behind me. Yes, laziness! I would go to bed without removing make up, let along thinking of moisturizing before hitting the pillow. As I got older, I found that I was using great make up products, but, they weren't really doing for me what they should. And, now I know why! If you don't look after and prep your skin before applying any kind of make up product, it doesn't matter how great it is, it will never perform the way it should.

So, now at close to forty, I am getting serious about skin care....and just like divine intervention Z Mei arrived at my door. At first, seeing the whole system seemed a little daunting to me (remember - lazy). But, then I got down to business, it was now or never time. After, all I had this promising system, why not give it a try and see if it made a difference?

Starting with the easiest to transition, was the Nourishing & Revitalizing Shampoo and Hair Repair & Strengthening Conditioner. Right away I felt a difference in the way my naturally curly hair was feeling, quickly I found it to be softer and more manageable. All thanks to a blend of botanical extracts and herbal nutrients. Since, I use colouring and styling products, I was really happy to learn that the conditioner protects against the harmful chemicals in those things!

Next, to help combat dry Canadian skin, I gave Retoning Hand & Body Moisture Therapy and Intensive Repair Therapy for Hands a go. These two products weren't hard to get to love! Dry, irritated and itchy skin drive me crazy, and right away I was feeling relief when using these products. As soon as I get out of the shower a quick application of the retoning therapy does the trick to keeping my skin hydrated.

I like to use the Exfoliating Scrub in conjunction with the Regenerating Night Treatment just before bed. A couple times each week I use the scrub, but each night before heading to bed the night treatment is a must. The scrub does a great job of removing toxins and leaves my face smooth. Then as I sleep, the night treatment does its job!

Before applying makeup I use a cotton pad to wipe down my face with the Purifying Facial Cleanser, which does not dry. My face is left clean and ready for the Balancing Toner, which locks in moisture. I have always said the a good moisturizer is a must - and the Replenishing Daily Moisturizer does a great job of hydrating, it even contains sunscreen! And, the final product I must mention is the Correcting Eye Cream. I dab with my little finger under my eye, leaves that delicate skin smooth.

Phew! I can't believe I was able to stick with the regime of using the Z Mei products! I really think my secret is once I started to use them, I would miss them if I skipped a day or a product. Separately, each product delivers what it promises, but, used as a system they are fabulous!

All products are sold separately, yet, Z Mei has Beauty System combinations at great price points, for example select six products for a price of $79.95! Plus enjoy free shipping in the US.

I've used Z Mei for about a month and in that time I have slipped into an easy routine with my Z Mei products. I notice a difference in not only the feel of my skin, but also the appearance. To find out more information visit Z Mei.

I'm terrible with regimens like that. I'm so lazy at night, but it sounds like this might be worth it!
