Youth Glow Eye Gel Review

Go Pure – Youth Glow Eye Gel Review

I’m only 22 and I’ve never used eye cream before. My motto before was always, “Don’t fix what isn’t broken, what’s natural is the best.” But now that I’m getting older, I realize that isn’t always the case. Eye cream is very important, afterall your eyes show your real age. I’m always worried that I’ll have wrinkles around my eyes, or dark eye circles… well thanks to Go Pure – Youth Eye Gel Review I don’t have to worry anymore! What I love about this product is that it is 100% NATURAL! Now, I’m a sucker for anything natural so I was so excited to try it out. It contains natural ingredients such as:  Plant Stem Cells Hyaluronic Acid Vitamin C Jojoba Oil Vitamin E and a Proprietary Peptide Complex and what’s great about the ingredient list is that I know about most of the products! Vitamin E is great for scarring. Jojoba oil is great for adding moisture. Hyaluronic plumps up your skin and helps with collagen. That’s just off the top of my head. All about the application Since this was …

Amara Organics Retinol Serum Review

I’m no newbie when it comes to Retinol. Actually, I’ve been using retinol steadily everyday for about 3 years now. One of my favorite serums is from Makeup Artist Choice, but their serums are quite pricey. So, after using their products for 3 years, I was excited to try a new serum! Amara organics offered me a chance to try their retinol serum which is 2.5%. The highest that I’ve ever had! Now, retinol is something that your skin has to get used to and for some – it’s very irritating, so be sure to test a a little bit on a patch of your skin first. Some background information about the serum A tried and true age-fighting ingredient that actually works, retinol is by the far the best thing you can do for your skin to combat the signs of aging. Retinol works on a molecular level to repair skin and stimulate collagen, resulting in firmer, smoother, wrinkle-free skin. Speeds up skin cell turnover, fading discoloration and improving texture to give your skin a healthy glow. …

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum Review

Vitamin C Serum for Face 20% With Vitamin E & Hyaluronic Acid I’m a huge fan of serums. If you have been following my skincare routine, I have been using makeupartist choice’s mandelic acid serum for 2 years now. But, with almost all skincare products – your skin hits a plateau after a while. So, I was on the lookout for a new serum that could help me achieve healthy, glowing skin. So, when I was sent a bottle of Amara Organic’s Vitamin C Serum , I was overjoyed! Afterall, everyone knows the benefits of Vitamin C.

Lush Father Christmas Bath Bomb Review

Lush Father Christmas Bath Bomb Review This is my first bathbomb EVER. So, of course I had high expectations. See Santa? Well, he’s from Rome. That’s right… I bought my bathbomb from Rome because it was basically half off and so cheap that I just had to buy it! Even though he was half off, he was still a bit expensive so I was saving him for a special occasion. When Valentines day came, I took him out from the shelf that he had been sitting on for one long month and brought him along with me to the hotel room.  Excuse the chipped nails . So, after drawing a bath – I threw him in. Watching my first ever bathbomb fizzle was such an incredible feeling (weird? I know). Now, while he was fizzing away sorry santa! I kept on imagining all the great things that would come from this $7 dollar bathbomb. Would my skin glow? Would I feel great and smell great? Would my skin be smooth and moisturized?   Second time I took it out..

Dermal Mask Review – Pearl Collagen Essence Mask

Time to relax, put on a mask and watch Netflix. My summers usually consist of me working, but as I don’t have a job this summer (first time), I spend my time blogging, designing for Serene Sky and doing chores. Life is actually pretty boring for me, I don’t go out and my skin is pale from spending hours indoors. Anyway, I finally decided to treat myself to a little mask that my cousin brought home from Vietnam. It’s called Dermal Collagen Masks; and she bought home a bundle of 4 types: Red Ginseng, White, Pearl and Aloe.  The lone SKINFOOD Masks, they were samples. There’s a store in Cerritos mall, so I’m hoping to try these soon. I was debating whether or not to try the White Mask or the Pearl one, I ended up trying the Pearl one. Directions/ Features Overall I like the mask, it doesn’t have a horrible smell and doesn’t sting upon application. Also, the mask itself is very large and I have a big face,I also like that they have parts to …

Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion+ Review

  It was 106 degrees in Long Beach today! Summer is finally here! At a very young age, I learned to put on sunscreen; not only will it help lighten hyperpigmentation, it’ll also prevent dark spots from emerging. If I don’t apply sunscreen religiously, I try my best to wear a hat so that the sun’s rays don’t damage my skin. Did this picture frighten you as much as it scared me?   The New England Journal of Medicine article published last year showed a shocking photo of a 69-year-old man with a 28 year history of sun exposure on just half of his face. The patient was a truck driver, and the left side of his face was chronically exposed to the sun.
