How to Protect, Shield and Defend Your Face

Are you looking for a product where environmental toxins literally ricochet off an invisible shield barrier? While it sounds too good to be true, I have found it. Check out H2O+ Beauty’s Shielding Matcha Facial Essence below.

Because the product features matcha green tea and rice bran extracts, it hydrates, removes dullness and minimizes the appearance of pores.

In fact, you can also use it as a primer between your skin and your foundation.

In addition, you can also mist throughout the day to refresh and set makeup.

How to use you wonder? It is easy.

You simply spritz it on (make sure to stay about 6 to 8 inches from your face). Don’t forget to close your eyes and mouth before spraying.

Also, doing so will create a breathable second skin that helps protect against environmental stressors that can prematurely age skin.

The product is formulated without parabens, phthalates and mineral oil and a 2.5 fl. oz. container can be purchased for $42 at

Another good find from H2O+ Beauty is the brand’s Treat Yourself Duo gift set.

The set is designed to hydrate your hands and nails with silk proteins, shea butter and vitamin E ingredients.

In addition, the Sea Salt Body Butter is infused with Green Tea and Jojoba Oil. It definitely treats your body with rich moisture.

H2O+ Beauty was founded in 1989 with the goal of encouraging women to define beauty on their own terms.

The company’s founder, Cindy Melk, once said that she believed that pure water was the key to creating products that enhanced and protected natural beauty.

In addition, she aims to arm all of her customers with these tools to look and feel their best, empowering them to reclaim their own definitions of beauty.
