My daughter bought my first moisturizer from the store while visiting Colorado as a gift. I really like the purity, smell and how wonderful it makes my skin feel. Since then, I’ve continued to purchase this product and others from Brazen Bee. It’s absolutely the bomb!!
Easy A Retinol Cream Moisturizer
This is the FULL size of our Retinol Cream treatment moisturizer.
This moisturizer is not only for those looking to simplify their nightly application, but also for those who've wanted to try some of the aspects of Enlightened Oil and Retin Rose. This affords all the best of each of them in one price point. You will only need to use a small amount daily of this creamy formula. You will find it is softer than Stiletto or SHU Healing Moisturizer because we've used Cupuacu Butter as the base.
The Cupuaçu Butter is thought to be superior to Shea Butter at penetrating the skin and retaining moisture. It is known to absorb damaging rays even though it does not have a number of its own for SPF protection. Studies have been done with it in hospitals and by large skincare companies, all with fantastic results on stronger collagen, decrease in skin problems, and improved cellular water retention anti-wrinkle)
We have added a small amount of Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter to provide a good array of solid fatty acids for the skin to use.
From there we took Black Cumin Seed oil from the Stiletto Moisturizer- a very important part of skin aging because Black Cumin Seed Oil is so high in fabulous plant sterols that nourish skin (thymoquinone is the most studied of these sterols and it's benefits range across nearly ALL skin issues). It has been shown to be an effective treatment for pigmentation issues, acne, skin cancer, bacterial and fungal infections.
Still writing this full description but the rest of the ingredients are...
Camellia (Green Tea) Seed oil- high in vitamin E. Reduces sun damage and causes skin to digest extra melanin (age spots)
Avocado Seed Oil - very important in the skin's metabolism of extra melanin (age spots) and anti-inflammatory action as well as high in cartenoids, lecithin, Vitamin D and E
Sacha Inchi Oil - from the Amazon Basin, this is also known as "Incan Peanut" and is a beautiful nutty oil high in natural Vitamin E and alpha-linolenic acid (not a common omega fatty acid and one the body cannot make itself). Alpha-linolenic acid is a great free radical scavenger and is shown to be a great anti-inflammatory. Also a known for reversing and preventing photo-aging (aging from sun exposure)
Sea Buckthorn Oil - wowza! This one is such an intense babe. I can barely describe how dark red this oil is, it truly resembles blood and when you touch a drop, it stains the skin orange. If you use Retin Rose Serum, you know what I mean! Obviously, the content of beta carotene and other forms of vitamin A in this oil are very very high. But Sea Buckthorn is not just about vitamin A at all. It's got some plant components that are hard to find and STIMULATE HEALING of all kinds of skin issues. This gem of an oil is FAST AND EFFICIENT HEALER due to rare finds like Palmitooleic Acid and Gamma Linoleic Acid. It is an oil that is highly penetrative and gets it's nutrients deeply into layers of the skin to jump start all kinds of healing.
Rose Hip Seed Oil - This is where the ever-sacred Retinol comes from in this formula. This famous form of vitamin A turns over skin cells at a faster rate and, thus, not only heals older issues, but also creates a brighter complexion by making brand new skin cells faster.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Moisturizers are crucial to proper healing, scar prevention, and wrinkle prevention. A good moisturizer is packed with healing oils and butters from nature, but never clogs pores with ingredients like glycerin or silicon. The skin MAKES OIL because it NEEDS OIL. Providing the right oily nutrition can speed healing and improve the quality of the skin like you have never seen before.
DAILY MOISTURIZER USE
Apply after anytime you wash your face. It will be absorbed within 10 minutes. PRO TIP: leave fingers and face wet prior to application and apply a VERY small amount. If you are going to wear makeup, leave some time to absorb before makeup application.
NIGHTLY MOISTURIZER USE
Our moisturizers are recommended for dry or oily skin! At night, apply what feels like “too much” to the face and sleep with it on. This gives the skin a chance to take up and utilize the vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that support healthy skin.
NIGHTLY USE - OILY SKIN
Apply what feels like “way too much” at night and go to bed. What you are doing is telling your skin that it does not need to overproduce oil and that you will feed it well every day so that it can stop making so much oil. Your oily skin will be markedly improved within one week with continued improvement over time. After two weeks of “way too much” at night treatment, you can adjust back to normal nightly use.
FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN
SHU Healing Moisturizer was developed specifically for acne relief. Acne needs oil. Acne needs anti-bacterial action. Acne needs soothing. Acne needs SHU. Apply liberally and you may want to reapply throughout the day for the first few days of use. Especially since you touch your face often and the antibacterial action is important.
Skin needs a daily nutrition boost! It is critical to give skin a thin layer of bioavailable vitamins and minerals with your daily routine. Directions: Use twice daily. Apply liberally after cleansing. While toner is still wet, apply your favorite Brazen Bee Moisturizer. It helps the moisturizer spread evenly as well as super charging it with bioavailable vitamins and minerals.
I have been using this creamy goodness since finding Courtney's store, and LOVE it for my (cough) aging skin. It is full of tons of good stuff Courtney has researched, trust anything she suggests, she has a gift for healing, supporting and making your skin feel better!
I was just recently on a trip to Manitou Springs, saw the cute little shop and decided to stop in. I struggle with hormonal acne so the employee suggested Easy A, the Cure-ist and enlighten toner. When I say my face has not looked better in years from just using these products a few days, I mean it!
At first this seemed like a "splurge" purchase, but as it turns out, it was actually a real bargain... It is extremely luxurious (much more so than famous luxury brands I have tried), performs exactly as promised, and it lasts and lasts! I highly recommend buying a large size of Easy A. It does not disappoint!
Love love love Easy A. Works great year-round, but especially during the dry Northern Wisconsin winters. I purchased the large jar (2.3 oz) and it has lasted me almost two years.
How I LOVE this moisturizer. It applies silky smooth, absorbs quickly and cleanly, and leaves my skin happy and radiant. This past decade I have only used 100% plant based pure products on my face, and though I am 50, I would swear my skin has never looked better. Easy A is easily one of the very top on my fave list of facial care products. I love it, and it sure loves me back. Brazen Bee has taken great care of me ever since I discovered them about 6 months ago on a business trip and I highly recommend! In store if you can, but online purchasing has been awesome, too.
This stuff is great! I usually use stiletto but decided to switch it up. It's definitely help with my rosacea and dry skin. A little goes a long way and my face feels more supple.
I received a trial size in the sample face wash/moisturizer pack. This seemed like the best option for treating my adult hormonal acne and help with skin discoloration from the acne. It really made a difference with my monthly breakouts! I don’t have clear and perfect skin...yet! I’ve been using strictly Brazen Bee products on my face for the last 7 months and have seen improvement!
Easy A was the first Brazen Bee product I tried. A good friend had given them a glowing review, and the interesting thing with this particular friend is that she has exceptionally healthy looking skin. Well, being the jealous type that I am, I decided to try out a few of their moisturizers. My prior experience with other brands’ moisturizers was ‘meh’ - and that was with higher end products that honestly had prices well beyond my modest budget. But, the more affordable products seemed to irritate things much more than they seemed to help or moisturize. This all brought me to Easy A. First, the detailed instructions that come included in the box were a huge help. And since I had read the instructions I knew to use a very tiny amount of product, but it still surprised me how truly very little of this stuff is needed for the entire face and neck areas. Suggestion: put what you’d generally consider to be a tiny amount on your hand - and then use only half of that. It’s no joke when they say that a little goes a long way. What a huge improvement this tiny little amount of Easy A made to my complexion. It was amazing that my face didn’t feel oily, dry or irritated after just 1 day of using it. After day 2 I noticed that the overall redness of my skin had started to calm down. After a week with Easy A my complexion had experienced even more noticeable improvements, especially with the reductions in redness and uneven coloring. I’ve ditched the time consuming makeup I had often worn in the past in order to mask my reddish, angry looking skin. Easy A opened my eyes to how healthy my skin could look and feel all within a relatively short period of time. Since then I’ve tried several more brazen bee products, and I’ve loved using all of them - but Easy A is a top favorite because of how immediate and lasting the results have been for me. If your skin is a total disaster like mine was, and you don’t really know what’s wrong with it, I’d definitely give Easy A a try. For me, it solved several skin issues that finally gave my skin more of the balanced look that I’ve been seeking for many years.
Great moisturizer; the cadillac of the moisturizer line!
I normally used Courtney's Stiletto moisturizer, which is WONDERFUL and decided to give Easy A a try! I was not disappointed! It is smooth, and makes my face FEEL hydrated and soft. So many other creams out there are mostly wafer and my skin would feel "meh" or tight like paper. But Easy A showed me how good my skin could feel and look! Get Easy A, you'll be so glad you did!
The texture of Easy A is sublime. Soft, goes on easily, moisturizes and nourishes my skin wonderfully. This one is a winner!!
