As we mature in age, our skin and hair care needs naturally begin to change. Skin can become dryer and hair can become thinner. These transformations can motivate us to live a healthier lifestyle that includes not only making changes when it comes to the foods that we eat and our level of daily exercise, but also becoming more conscious about the personal care and beauty products that we use daily.
With so many beauty products on the market, it can be challenging to find the right products that work. When considering what to buy, it’s important to choose beauty products with natural and organic ingredients that are free of toxins to reduce any potential health risks and support a more nourishing lifestyle. You also want beauty products that are affordable and that you can trust to meet your needs.
This is why I highly recommend Pura D’or 20% Vitamin C Serum for your skin and Pura D’or 100% Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil for your hair and skin. After personally reviewing these products, I was amazed by the results and thrilled to discover a natural and organic beauty product line that I would use regularly. The results from the Original Gold Label Shampoo and Deep Moisturizing Conditioner set were also pleasantly surprising.
Pura D’or 20% Vitamin C Serum, 4 oz. - ($14.99)
The 20% Vitamin C Serum is a water-based serum that's free of Sulfates and Parabens and contains certified organic ingredients including Retinol, Argan Oil, Vitamin E, Witch Hazel and pure vegan Hyaluronic Acid. The serum increases collagen production, which improves the elasticity and firmness of your skin. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and evens skin tone by fading the appearance of age spots and other skin discolorations. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that protects your skin from harmful free radicals caused by environmental stressors and pollution.

It can strengthen your nails and stimulate hair follicles for healthier, shinier and thicker hair including thicker and fuller eyebrows and eyelashes. The oil also lightens scars, reduces wrinkles and other premature signs of aging. It can also combat acne-prone skin.
Using Pura D’or for Skincare:
I didn’t have to change my skincare routine completely to experience great results. I simply added the 20% Vitamin C Serum and 100% Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil set to my regular routine. I loved the droppers and applicator in each product, which makes it easier to control how much of the products that you apply to your skin. This also helps the product last longer by ensuring that you apply just the right amount that you need. I followed this routine for over a month but I started to see results in the brightness and suppleness of my skin within three days:
After cleansing my face with a Vitamin C cleanser and applying an under eye cream, I applied five drops of the Pura D’or Vitamin C Serum. I usually wait about 3-5 minutes between each step to give time for each product to penetrate my skin. After applying the Vitamin C Serum, I used a collagen infused moisturizer before the final step of applying the 100% Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil by Pura D’or. First, I used the applicators to apply the 100% Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my eyebrows and lashes, again waiting 3-5 minutes, before applying 2-3 drops of the oil to my entire face.
I noticed that my skin actually started to look and feel younger and softer within the first week. Initially, I was concerned about the Vitamin C Serum being more liquid-based because I normally use serums that are gel or cream-based. But after using it, my skin felt refreshed and looked instantly brighter. The creases from fine lines in my skin softened significantly. My skin looked healthier, smoother, and younger, and it felt softer, and more supple. I also noticed that my skin stayed hydrated all day after using the 100% Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil in my daily skincare routine. Before I started using the Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil, I would have to apply oil to my face at least 3-4 times a day, which meant that I had to stop wearing makeup most days. But since I’ve been using the Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil by Pura D’or, I no longer have to re-apply oil to my skin throughout the day.
Pura D’or 100% Pure Organic Jamaican Black Castor Oil for Hair
I also recommend using the 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil for your hair. It’s also a great conditioning formula for eyebrows and eyelashes. It’s been over a month now since I first started using the product and I’ve noticed that my eyebrows have become fuller. Also, using the oil as a leave-in conditioner treatment on wet hair before blow-drying, gave my hair a nice healthy, natural shine without looking oily. I also noticed that my hair had more body with a nice softness to it. It also looked healthier and fuller. The oil is also great for daily use on dry hair. Again, it gives your hair a natural shine. The oil is rich and thick but it didn’t seem to weigh my hair down or make it too oily. I applied one drop before tying my hair up at night with a satin scarf before bed. I also used a dab on my hair in the morning while taking down and combing my hair.
