Yalmeh Glory Eye Bright Gel☆Brightening Eye Cream Review

So normally I never thought I needed an "eye gel " but over the years I have noticed bags under my eyes ( especially since motherhood) and never thought too much on how to get rid of them. I was offered to review this product and could not pass up the chance as I was very curious.  You can check this product out on Amazon which has it for a fair price ( $19.25)

The company has posted the following :

★LUXURIOUS FEEL - It contains Plant Stem Cells and Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid for Superior Anti Aging Effects which hydrate the flimsy eye area (including eye lids) to avoid premature ageing.The Eye Gel (Not Eye Cream) is specifically has an advanced formula for the delicate skin around your eyes to reverse the signs of aging. Is soft and feels soothing when you put it on. In fact, some have described the feeling as luxurious. It is not greasy. Formulated for Quick Absorption.

★DARK CIRCLES AND PUFFINESS? Are you troubled by dark circles and puffiness under your eyes? Do people think you party too much or don't get enough sleep, even though the real problems are your family genes or broken capillaries under the eyes? If you are still looking to find real, effective anti-aging treatment for the eye area then look no further. Yalmeh Glory Eye Bright Gel (Not Eye Cream) Dramatically reduce the appearance of Dark circles, Puffiness, Dryness and Sagging around the eyes and Increases softness, firms and plumps the skin around the eyes.People also use it around the mouth, forehead and cheek area and have seen similar results in those areas.

What I Thought

I really liked this. The consistency was nice and very soothing on the skin under my eye area. I wear contacts and sometimes eye products easily irritate my eyes, this was not the case with this. Thats a huge plus. It also goes on very smooth and leaves the area feeling refreshed after which I loved. ( I had insomnia a few nights this week and got no sleep and had appointments the next day. I was so happy to have this in my makeup bag I swear it made a difference. ) This helped to take the puffiness away which in my book is amazing.

100% Plant Based Konjac Sponge infused with Activated Charcoal Review A FAVORITE

SO I reviewed Konjac Beauty Sponge and was honestly so impressed.

I had never used one of these before but had been hearing that they were the latest rage and was so happy when I was able to review them. First off I had never heard of this company prior to my review ( and BTW ladies I have some upcoming reviews from the same company so be on the lookout ) Oleavine is a leading Anti-aging and Skincare Beauty Company and they have really impressed me with the products I have received so far.  You can check out the website here and see what other great products they have to offer. 

The company claims that the product:
This luxuriously soft sponge gently exfoliates, cleanses, and is naturally pH balanced. The activated bamboo charcoal absorbs toxins, fights bacteria and excess oils leaving your face glowing, refreshed and radiant. Even preps skin to boost the absorption of your favorite serums and creams.
New ergonomically designed teardrop shape fits comfortably in the palm of your hand while the soft rounded point allows you to gently exfoliate sensitive hard to reach areas around your eyes. Ideal shape for the contours of your face but still large enough for your body. You'll love using it in the shower or by the mirror!

And I have to admit the claims were correct. I am in love. My fave is looking amazing. You do NOT even need to use a cleanser with this but I do add a tiny bit of LUSHS " Dark Angel " onto my face and rub in with the sponge and then wash the sponge out and pat out the excess water and hang and wallah its all set for my next use. ( You can even sanitize in the microwave if need be ) 

The company has also said that :

Be confident in knowing your new Beauty Sponge is:
-Free From Chemicals, Pollution and Irritants
-100% Biodegradable and Sustainable (You can even plant it in your flowerbed or compost when you want to retire it)
-Not Tested on Animals, and Vegan Friendly
-Has NO Added Dyes or Colorants

I have also found this to be a huge part in why I love this product. You read that correct YOU  CAN ACTUALLY PLANT THIS IN YOUR FLOWERBED OR COMPOST WHEN YOU'RE DONE WITH IT!! WHATT? THATS AMAZING!  I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THAT.  I love the fact that its free from gross chemicals and that has legit made my skin look amazing.  ( I am also using a few more beauty products which you will see later on that I have added to my skincare routine. But I have to say this is probably the Coolest gadget I have beauty wise. And its not expensive at all. This would make a great gift for someone for the Holidays!! I can not wait to try out the other kinds that they have. 

Keep in mind that when you get the product it comes sealed up and will be really hard, but the second that you wet it it becomes so silky soft, its magic like I said. And do NOT let the term " SPONGE" throw you off ( I know you may think ewww sponge gross...germs...Like I said..THIS IS ANYTHING BUT!

Ladies leave me a comment with one of your latest beauty finds and favorite beauty tools that you have just discovered. I would love to hear from you.

Check the website out. I left links above. Totally worth the $10 on amazon.

Do you love Candles ? Giveaway and Review

I am a huge candle lover. I especially love soy candles. I was so excited to be able to review these and wondered how they would differ from the other candles I have used in the past. I could not wait to put them to the test.

First off I love how the package was delivered to me. The Box they came in was just adorable. I love the fact that there was 3 scents in here and they went perfect together. I received Autumn Leaves, Pumpkin Spice and Cranberry. I love how they were paired together as  fall is my favorite time of the year , and although I burn candles year round I especially love to burn them in the fall.

I love how these burn, and I made sure to trim them as you should with candles. They smelled heavenly right out of the box and even better lit ( which actually does NOT always happen with candles I find. ) Sometimes I will be in the store and smell a candle and it smells delicious and then I get home and burn it and nothing.....I hate that and its such a disappointment. That was not the case with these.

I also have a loft style open apartment so I usually have more than one candle going at a time, spread out in the house. The way that these were paired together worked perfect.  They all smelled great together and my house smelled of wonderful Fall.

I just found a new company that I will be dedicated to ordering candles from.  Gone are my days of paying up to $30 for a single candle from a company whose name I will not mention, when I can easily order from Old Factory and have it delivered to my door within days (  Amazon Prime is the best)

I think this would make a perfect gift for someone. There is always that person on your list who you do not know what to get for the Holidays. I know exactly what people will be getting this year. I know I would not mind receiving this as a gift ( hint hint )

Here is where you can order the gift set I got.

Look how nice that looks burning in my apartment.

The link on amazon says that :

  • Each gift pack comes with 3 fragrance-themed candles. Each of which burns clean for over 20 hours. The subtle jar design makes it the perfect complement for any decor, and any room of the house - kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, family room, great room, basement. We recommend burning one candle in a smaller room, or combining 2 candles in a larger room for the best effect.

  • Every purchase is 100% Guaranteed. If you are not completely thrilled with the fragrance or appearance of these candles. We insist you send them back (at our expense) and we'll give you a full refund. No hassles. No headaches. That's our promise to you.
  • Note : if you win you will receive a coupon code for amazon for this product to get it 100% FREE. However amazon does NOT allow the company to pay for shipping with the coupon. If you have prime that will make shipping free ( its cheap shipping anyways) However YOU will be reimbursed from the company if you win for shipping if you do not have Prime, just send me your paypal and we will get that shipping sent right over to your account.  If you win and you do not have Prime or Paypal we may be able to figure something out another way =) just a heads up loves

Body Merry Cellulite Cream Review

     So ladies I am not sure that any of you can honestly say this is a topic you love to talk about: Cellulite. LoL. So when I was approached to do a review on this product I was iffy at first. Cellulite to me is something that I just wish did not exist. As I am sure most of you think the same way . However who am I to say no to reviewing a product that can potentially make me look and feel better? So I decided " Why Not". And I am glad I did.  

First of the product I received shipped via Amazon Prime and came within a few days. The company that makes it is called Body Merry and you can purchase it on Amazon for only $19.99 . Not a bad deal at all. 

Before I get into my thoughts I want to tell you how the website describes the product:

  • Optimum Caffeine + Retinol: Body Merry's Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream has a high Caffeine content and the optimum level of Retinol (0.4%), as recommended by experts.

  • Natural + Organic: This cream also contains potent natural and organic ingredients. Three types of Seaweed (Algae Extract + Kelp + Dulse) combine to give it an antioxidant boost, which helps in firming and toning. Organic Cayenne provides a spicy twist and helps in circulation and reducing the storage of fat. This synergistic blend ensures that you are well on your way to reducing the appearance of unwanted bumps and lumps!

  • Lightweight + Refreshing: The lightweight consistency of the gel-cream is designed to glide over large areas so that a little goes a long way. It absorbs quickly into your skin, leaving no greasy residue. It is infused with a refreshing 100% Natural 'mint - green tea - lime' fragrance, that barely leaves a trace once completely absorbed.
  • Made in USA + Cruelty Free + No Harsh Chemicals: The cream is made in the USA in an FDA registered and GMP compliant facility. Body Merry's products are not tested on animals. The cream is also free from harsh chemicals such as Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.
  • Manufacturer Guarantee: Body Merry's products are backed with a 90 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you don't like this cream, just contact us and get a full refund. Best of all, you don't even need to return the jar.

Now with all that being said there is always what the " company " says and what " consumers" such as myself really think. So what did I think?

* First off the first time I opened the jar I thought to myself " wow this looks interesting to the say the least. It looked somewhat like a gel and figured it would feel gross when I applied it. I was wrong. Once I smoothed it in I felt this nice tingling , cooling sensation.   I found that it absorbed rather quickly which the website said it would do . Thats a plus in my book. It also made my skin nice and smooth and the scent was not overpowering at all. A little really does go a long way.

* Now I am rather skeptical about products that claim to get rid of cellulite , but Body Merry seemed confident that their product works so good that if you do not like it they will refund your money back. HMMM Thats a pretty big claim to make I figured. Well after using this for a few weeks I can see why they are so sure of this product. I can not say that " my lumps " have gone away. No I wish. But I can say that my skin is visibly smoother in those areas that once bothered me so much.  I plan to continue to use this product , as I have heard that with these products its best to continue usage if you want the results to last. Now for only $19.99 I think thats a small investment to make for something that seems to be working.

The directions do say to : Massage the cream onto the affected areas twice daily (morning and night). For best results, clean and completely dry your skin before use. I sometimes forget to apply it at night ( bad girl) But always apply after I dry off after my morning shower. I need to remember to use at night because I bet I will see even better results than I already have. ( and I did mention I am VERY happy with this product so far)

Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum Review

Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum Review

I was sent the Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum to review. I have never used a retinol serum before so I was a little nervous as I do have sensitive skin and was afraid I would break out. As many of you know I was a big tanner and that and maybe stress caused some wrinkles on my forehead so I decided that reviewing this maybe would not be such a bad idea,

The product came super fast. I ordered off Amazon. You can check it out here on Amazon: the price I think is very fair.

Now before you read the rest not all of you may know what retinol is. Let me explain a little first.

  • Retinol - is an active form of vitamin A, a fat-soluble vitamin that is essential to vision and bone development. A few food sources include liver, whole milk, and fortified foods. The body can also convert it to retinal and retinoic acids as found in carotene compounds. This vitamin is also used as a topical compound for treating acne and to also help improve other forms of skin damage from aging and UV damage from the sun. ( so if you were a tanner like I was then you might want to invest in this.

I have not noticed a change in the wrinkles but as I mentioned with other products you need to keep using it, you can NOT give up just because you do not notice a change right away. I heard that you should even use this late twenties to early 30s even without signs of damage because it can help to prevent and keep at bay. So since I have NOT had a reaction to this and since my wrinkles at the moment are not bad at all, I am deciding that prevention is the best key, and I rather be safe then sorry.

The way that its best to use this according to my research and the directions are:
First, cleanse and exfoliate your skin, then apply your toner and allow your skin to dry. If you use a Vitamin C serum, apply that next, and follow it with Azure Naturals Ultimate Retinol Anti Wrinkle Serum. Apply your moisturizer finally. 

Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Witch Hazel, Pentylene Glycol, Phospholipids, Retinol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Phosphate, Hydroxyethyl Cellulose, Carrageenan Gum, Organic Jojoba Oil, Triticum Vulgare, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl Acetate), Organic Green Tea, Wildcrafted Resina Propoli, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin

I am going to keep using this cuse I know that I need to give it some more time. I do notice a softer texture all aeou

Hey ladies,
I am so happy to be back blogging. I have some great reviews coming up. I was sent this :
For review and was so excited while waiting for it in the mail. I love all stuff beauty as you all know, and had never heard of Rosehip Seed Oil. I did some research before hand to see exactly what it was and from my research I have found that it :

Every one of UNi's Rosehip Seed Oil contains one premium quality ingredient: Rosa Canina (Rosehip Seed Oil). Our Rosehip Seed oil are both USDA Organic and ECO Certified by ECOCERT ICO. Chemical free, no additive and clean processing.
• Daily Moisturizer.
• Diminish the appearance of scars, stretch marks, sun burns, fine line and wrinkles.
• Nourish and hydrate dry and aging skin.
• Treats dryness and roughness.
• Evens skin tone. Excellent for hyper-pigmentation, age spots and other skin discoloration.
• Anti-inflammatory and antioxidants
• Corrects UV damages.
• Regenerates skin cells and repairs damaged skin tissue.

Hmmmm so sounds good right??? 
Well lets see. I get the product. It came super fast ( order off amazon) and was surprised at how big the bottle was. I opened it right away and love that it comes with a little medicine dropper. I was hoping that it did not smell like strong roses cuse that smell usually bothers me, and to my surprise the rose smell was hardly there. 

Now there are a few uses for this product. I do have some scars that are pretty old and I have been using it on that every night ( rub a little between my palms and spread on the scars ) anyways I still have not had this product long so I have not noticed if they are fading or not but with ANYthing that claims to remove scars you need to give it some time and the trick is NOT to give up. So I am being consistent with using this every night.

I had also had some strange itchy rash on my legs since July ( and ya I know ladies but NEVER went to the doctors for it LoL) I decided to put some of this on it for the heck of it , and the rash is fading and is no longer itching me. ( I would itch this rash all day to the point that it was bruising) SO that was a pleasant surprise. 

I have not used this in my hair yet, but I am going to. My hair gets weighed down very easily so I want to be cautious. I think  I will give that a whirl this week and I will be sure to update.

I also have to add that I have been smothering my legs with this which get super dry in the fall and winter and nothing EVER seems to help. This is keeping them silky and smooth for now, which makes me happy.

Take at look at this product which as I mentioned can be purchased on Amazon . The price is very fair I would say.
