Restorsea Giveaway! *Worth $175*

Posted by Emily


When I first heard mention of Restorsea, I admit I just rolled my eyes.

My mom and my aunt were trying to tell me I’d love it because it’s “all natural.” This is one of my pet peeves– people are constantly recommending products to me that they think are green– because they are advertised as such– but are actually just green-washed. (I have one friend who thinks that everything purchased at Whole Foods is going to be my “new favorite organic product,” when often, they contain PEGs, preservatives, and “fragrance.”)

As we’ve discussed on this blog many times, everyone is entitled to his/her own comfort-level of what is “natural” or “organic” enough, but I do try and go as natural as I can. And for me, this has meant forgoing many perceived luxuries. I didn’t think I was ever going to find a prestige brand skincare that was also actually natural enough to satisfy me.



My aunt had some samples of Restorsea and was kind enough to share with me. I took them to be polite, and then read the ingredients. I could not believe what I was reading. Its ingredients, with one exception (fragrance), are pretty natural! No parabens, no phthalates, no PEGs, no chemical peptides, no silicone, no mineral oils. ย I mean, this cream wasn’t whipped up in a hippie’s kitchen in Brooklyn (too bad!) but it’s as darn close as a super-high-tech, luxury, super-effective line is ever going to be! Do I wish they made an option without fragrance? Sure. But until then, I feel like that is one compromise I, personally, can make.

Anti-aging wasn’t a big concern for me when I started using the cream. I am in my 30s, and I’m sure my skin had signs of aging, but I had bigger problems: acne. My acne is entirely hormonal, which means that no amount of willow bark, tea tree oil, juice cleanses, antibiotics, or anything like that was going to fix it. BUT I have found that Restorsea, because it increases cell turnover, makes my breakouts fewer, they go away MUCH faster, get less red, less irritated, and are less noticeable. A miracle for me. Seriously life-changing.


Here’s a piece of the story from Restorsea‘s website: Read the whole thing here— it’s not that long and it’s fascinating!

ย Reluctantly participating in a hike through the pure fjords of western Norway, Patti landed herself on a tour of the country’s largest salmon hatchery. She became transfixed by the hatchery workers’ hands; while their faces betrayed their true ages, their hands looked much younger. Because the workers’ hands were consistently submerged in water, Patti knew where to look for their secret.

Patti in the above clip is Patti Pao, who “boasts an illustrious beauty background, having launched over 400 products for lauded brands such as Avon, Elizabeth Arden, Guerlain and Peter Thomas Roth.”

And, bonus: Restorsea donates 5% of sales to Room to Read’s Girls’ Education Program. Wow.

    Now that I’m in my 30’s (sigh), I’m always looking for a natural way to dive into the fountain of youth. Despite being in my 30’s, most night creams leave me looking 13 again in the morning;-). Choose me! I’d be so grateful!!

Either way, thanks for the heads up!

  27. Agbeke

    I wonder if it could double as an eye cream

    • They make a truly incredible eye cream. If you don’t win, try the eye cream! Either way, the free samples include both, so definitely go for that! I’m sure the Night Cream also works as an eye cream, but the eye cream is specially formulated– it tingles a little when you put it on the first few times, which I LOVE! –Emily

    I need this the mid west winter take a toll!!!!!! Pam

  29. Kelsey G

    I’m totally loving your site! I’ve been on the hunt for a natural deodorant but have been having reactions to most of the “big” brands. You’re slogging through them has been so great :)! Thank you. I’d love to win some great natural face cream, but either way I’m now a devoted follower!

    • Thanks, Kelsey! That’s so great to hear!! Welcome. We are thrilled you’re enjoying. Hope we can help, and good luck in the giveaway. PS have you tried Bubble and Bee? It’s my favorite– no irritation!!! –Emily
