Last year we shared one of Japan’s best beauty secrets, Mirai Clinical.  Founded on the holistic Japanese practice of “less is more” (i.e. the fewer products you use, the healthier your skin will be), Mirai Clinical, develops cosmeceuticals that fuse traditional Japanese ingredients, including those sourced from the sea, with advanced science to provide superior quality personal care experiences.  The brand’s Purifying & Hydrating Face Wash with Antioxidant Astaxanthin & Green Tea gently cleanses, while hydrating and softening the skin — without stripping the skin of its natural oils.  Infused with all-natural botanicals, star ingredients feature antioxidant-rich green tea and Astaxanthin (derived from micro-algae, it is 800 times more effective than CoQ10), soothing aloe, rosemary, chamomile, and lavender, hydrating coconut oil and silk protein, and refreshing grapefruit oil.  The concentrated formula, housed in an airless pump, is free of sulfates, synthethic dyes, fragrance, and preservatives.

Mirai Clinical is offering thirty lucky Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its Purifying & Hydrating Face Wash with Antioxidant Astaxanthin & Green Tea (retail $25) simply by following them on Instagram or subscribing to their YouTube channel  (if you don’t have Instagram) and entering  here. This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address only.  Delivery is anticipated within 3-4 weeks from notification.

As you know, we love discovering beauty secrets from abroad! In Cape Town, South Africa, we first encountered a magical oil that helped mitigate the appearance of our unsightly scars and stretch-marks.  Bio-Oil, considered a tissue-oil (due to its skin healing benefits), features a powerful combination of plant extracts and vitamins such as calendula, chamomile, lavender, rosemary, and vitamins A and E.  The breakthrough ingredient, PurCellin Oil,  helps the botanical extracts absorb quickly, deep beneath skin’s surface without oily residue.  The a cult-favorite product is the best-selling remedy for scars and stretch marks in eighteen countries worldwide.  Containing no preservatives or harmful chemicals, the hypo-allergenic, non-acnegenic Bio-Oil may be applied to the face and body and is approved for use by pregnant women.  Bio-Oil is used in burn centers across the globe, and is one of the top pharmacy purchases in the UK, Africa and Australia.

Bio-Oil is offering thirty Beauty Undercover Subscribers an opportunity to SWAG its 2 oz. bottle ($11.99) simply by following us on Instagram (or your favorite social network) and entering here.  This SWAG Alert is open to Subscribers 18 years or older with a valid US mailing address.  Shipping is anticipated in 3-4 weeks.
