Review: Rainbow Braid 7200 Band MEGA Loom Band Refill Set


Today's review is all about the 7200 Band MEGA Loom Band Refill Set from Rainbow Braid. Here at home, it's the adults who are enjoying the loom bracelets more. Oh, if I can just describe to you how excited they we were when the refill pack arrived.





Product Description

  • Wear the Rainbow and Loom with 24 Colors and 500 Clips to Make Rubber Band Bracelets 
  • Fully Compatible with All Rubber Band Looms 
  • 300 Each of 24 Different Colors All in Individiual Bags By Color Solid/Neons (Metallic Gold, Metallic Silver, Red, Purple, Tuquoise, Light Blue, Dark Blue, Hot Pink, Dark Green, Orange, Yellow), Glow in the Dark (Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink, Orange, Purple), Glitter (Pink, Blue, Purple, Orange, Green) and Bolds (Black, White) 
  • 365 Day 100% Money Back Guarantee

My Opinion

I love that there are so many colors to choose from and that they are packed in different bags to avoid bleeding. They made it easier for the girls to sort and organize. I can tell that the bands are made of high quality materials and there is no strong rubber smell. Two bags of clips are included in the pack; not all refill kits give that much. The colorful beads are a bonus, too.






See how much fun we all had with the loom bands?

Pros

The loom bands have vivid colors. They no strong rubber smell. They are soft and elastic and they don't break easily. Each color is packed separately, no more time sorting through colors. Independently tested and safe for kids

Cons

No looms included in the refill kit.

Recommendation

There's a lot of colors and you can make so much from this refill kit. We are having a lot of fun making loom bracelets and even though this was sent to me for free for evaluation purposes, I will definitely purchase this MEGA Loom Band Refill Set when we run out of loom bands.

All photos used in the review were taken by myself or family. Do keep in mind that what works for me may not work for you.

Review: Youthful Radiance Eye Cream by Foxbrim


Today's topic is about Foxbrim's Youthful Radiance Eye Cream. The skin around the eyes is usually the driest area in our face and also the most sensitive, that is why it's important that you only use products that don't contain harsh ingredients.



Product Description

Wake Up from Tired Eyes. Say Hello to Youthful Radiance!

Foxbrim's Youthful Radiance Eye Cream is the quick and easy way to totally refreshed and nourished eyes!
  • • Comprehensive Eye Care System addresses ALL your eye care concerns. Believe It! 
  • • Achieve Hollywood Radiance With Ease. Dramatic Results! • ONLY All-Natural and Organic Ingredients. Safe for ALL Skin Types.

The Simple Solution to Dull and Tired Eyes. Youthful Radiance Eye Cream Does What It Says It Will Do!
  • • Make Puffiness, Dark Circles and Wrinkles A Thing of the Past. 
  • • Prepare for the 'Before' and 'After'. Celebrate Your Beautiful Eyes! 
  • • Make your Mirror Your New Best Friend! 



My Opinion

Dark circles and puffy eyes are my main problems because of lack of sleep and I'm glad eye creams usually do the trick of eliminating them. I've been using Foxbrim's Youthful Radiance Eye Cream for more than a week now and I'm pleasantly surprised that it's working perfectly. The skin around my eyes is well moisturized and it feels very soft. Even the puffiness have subsided and dark rings are much lighter.

I use it in the morning and once again at night right after cleaning my face. It's soothing to the eyes and not irritating at all. My eyes feel instantly refreshed after application. Although it's still too early because it's only been more than a week, I'm quite positive that with the way the eye cream moisturizes and hydrates the skin, my crow's feet will become less visible.

Pros

The eye cream contains natural ingredients -- Aloe, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Green Tea Extract, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Lemongrass -- known to nourish skin. It comes in an airless pump, so it's more hygienic and easy to use.

Cons

It's a bit expensive for me because it's packed in a small bottle.

Recommendation

If you're looking for a product that works at eliminating the signs of aging, this eye cream is for you.

Buy it on Amazon or on their website. You may also visit and like their Facebook page for updates.

Review: Silix Black Silicon Bracelet


A Black Silicon Bracelet with 18K Rose Gold Over Stainless Steel was sent to me courtesy of Jewelry.com for evaluation purposes. Silix by Aya is their new line of bracelets for summer 2014.



Product Description

From designer Aya Azrielant comes the hottest bracelet statement of the season. A classic combination of black silicon and 18K rose gold over stainless steel creates an edgy look for the contemporary fashionista. Bracelet measures 13/16 inches in width and stretches to fit.

My Opinion

The silicon bracelet looks really classy. It's very smooth, stretchy and carefully crafted. If you'll look at it closely, you can tell that only fine materials were used to make the Black silicon bracelet.



I've had stretchy bracelets before and what I don't like about them is they pinch the skin when worn. It's different with Silix, the black silicon is soft and it does not pinch the skin. It's comfortable to wear and the rose gold doesn't look cheap at all.



Recommendation

Accessories definitely change the way you look. If you're looking for a jewelry you can wear any time of the day, go for the silicon bracelets by Aya. The bracelets come in a variety of colors - black, white, red and blue. Visit the website now for more info.

Review: Australian Tea Tree Oil


I've been using tea tree oil for years because I love it and it never fails when it comes to treating stubborn acne. What usually lasts for weeks only lasts about a few days with the oil. I know it has many other uses, but I never really got to try using it with other purposes. Then recently, I was sent a bottle of Australian Tea Tree Oil. I was also asked to download the file containing recipes and the many ways to use the essential oil.



Product Description

  • One of the most versatile essential oils. Naturally fight Acne, Toenail Fungus, Lice, Yeast Infections, Skin Tags, Cold Sores, Dandruff, Ringworm, Fleas, Warts, Psoriasis, and More. 
  • Use to make your own Shampoo, Lotion, Soap, Face Cleaner, Body Wash, and Toothpaste. Stop polluting your home and make all natural Household Cleaners, Detergents, Shower Sprays, Bathroom Disinfectants, and Kitchen Sprays.


My Opinion

I was running out of toner, so I thought I'd try to make my own. Following the recipe, I mixed all the ingredients and using a cotton ball, applied it to my face and neck area. I saw dirt on the cotton ball that the facial cleanser didn't wash off. It works just like my toner does, and the good thing is, this is more natural and doesn't contain any chemicals. I have yet to try the oil with the other recipes!



Pros

Tea Tree Oil has many uses. It contains 100% pure tea tree oil and no chemical was added. It can be used to make disinfectants, deodorizers, household cleaners and detergents.

Cons

I didn't find anything I didn't like about the product.

Recommendation

Tea tree oil is a must have in your household. You can use it to clean your home and yourself. Although a sample was sent to me for free, I will not hesitate to buy another bottle.

Buy on Amazon!

Review: Barefaced Dead Sea Mud Mask



No time to visit the spa? A mud mask can help exfoliate and slough off dead skin cells, leaving your skin looking youthful. I like using a mud mask at least once a week not just to thoroughly clean my face, but to give it the boost it needs to make it glow. Today, I am reviewing Barefaced Dead Sea Mud Mask.



Product Description 

Bursting with Goodness. Dead Sea mud is full of natural minerals, salts and nutrients, proven to have repairing and healing properties for our skin.
Sent from Mother Nature. Filtered down from the surrounding mountains, layers of fine salt, sand and clay deposits have developed over centuries to form the black mud of the Dead Sea. Our mud has been harvested straight from its bed.

Show off your Bareface. Banish those bad skin days and reveal a Barefaced more confident you. Skin will feel beautifully bare, purified and rejuvenated. This good skin feeling with brighten up your complexion and your day.




My Opinion

I just love the scent of this mask. It's a mix of lavender and eucalyptus that calms you and your skin instantly. It has a cooling effect that is very relaxing. It's not gritty unlike other masks that I've tried. It's smooth and easy to apply on the skin. The mud mask doesn't take too long to dry and I love the feeling of tightness after washing it off. My face feels very smooth and supple. That feeling lasts for days!



Recommendation

This is a great and affordable way to pamper your skin. If you're looking for a product to exfoliate and rid your skin of dirt and grime, I recommend that you give this mud mask a try. Using a mud mask at least once a week will definitely give your facial skin a boost.

Review: Resurface by Protege


Protege is becoming my favorite brand of beauty products. I've been using Emfaceize and so far I'm loving what it does to my skin. Today's topic is about Resurface, a night cream that promises to deliver radiant, flawless and more youthful skin.


Product Description

ResurFACE is an Enriched Nightly Restoration Cream Developed to Nourish, Moisturize, Repair and Protect

Healing: Loaded with Healing Ingredients Such As CoQ10, Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, and Ceremide E to Restore, while Kelp Ferment is Fortified with Nutrients to Nourish Your Skin
You Will Be Amazed by the Overnight Results!

Anti-Oxidant: Actives like Lutein and Lycopene Protect Against UV damage, while Anti-Oxidants Alpha Lipoic Acid, Astaxanthin and Vitamin E Destroy Free Radicals
Give Your Skin a Chance to Defend Itself from the Elements

Moisturizing: Avocado Oil, Almond Oil, and Sesame Oil Provide a Hydrating Triple Treat, Then Sodium PCA Takes it to the Next Level by Preventing Moisture Loss

Wake Up to a Supple, Soft Face



My Opinion

The night cream has a nice and thick consistency. It glides easily on the skin and dries up fast. I like that it doesn't leave an oily look. I hate it when the grease stains my pillow. This one doesn't do that. Just as Protege promised, my skin felt smooth and supple instantly. The first time I used this, I woke up the next day with a silky smooth skin. I've been on this a couple of weeks now and people around me are starting to notice that my very defined crow's feet are a bit lighter. I'm sure that if I continue to use this over the next few weeks, they'd become less visible.



I use it every night before going to bed, right after leaning my face and applying Emfaceize. My skin feels soft and moisturized, especially around the eye area. Yup, it's safe to use around the eyes, just make sure that it won't get in your eyes.

Recommendation

If you're looking for a night cream to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, I suggest you give Resurface a try. It's easy to work on the skin and it doesn't leave an oily appearance. You'll be surprised that it's more affordable than most night creams in the market.

Resurface is available on Amazon.
