Review: Body Merry Vitamin C Serum and Hyaluronic Acid


I'm not new to Body Merry products, so when I was invited to review the Age Defense Super 6 Serum, I got really excited. This is a new product and I love just love how their Vitamin C Serum and Hyaluronic Acid work on my skin.




Product Description


  • SIX-IN-ONE FORMULA: 22% Vitamin C and 20% Hyaluronic Acid combine with optimum levels of Retinol, Niacinamide, CoQ10 and Astaxanthin to form a gentle and nourishing potion to fight the signs of aging - SIX great ingredients that need no introduction in anti-aging skincare - all rolled into one potent formula.
  • NOT YOUR REGULAR SERUM: Unlike other vitamin C serums on the market that have only 5-20% Vitamin C, this serum has the power of 22% Vitamin C with 2.5% Retinol for maximum potency. If that wasn't enough, powerful natural and organic ingredients such as Organic Aloe, Witch Hazel, Wheat Germ Oil, Green Tea , Propolis and Organic Jojoba Oil are also added to the mix.
  • ANTI-AGING + BRIGHTER COMPLEXION: It helps to effectively address all your concerns, whether it is signs of aging (wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, etc), or uneven skin tone and texture (discoloration, acne or other marks, sun damage or hyperpigmentation).
  • The serum is made in the USA in an FDA registered and GMP compliant facility. It is not tested on animals.
  • Body Merry's products are backed with a 90 Day 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If you don't like this serum, just contact us and get a full refund. No need to return the bottle.

My Thoughts

The serum has a nice consistency and it has a very faint herb scent. The scent doesn't linger on your skin, so if you're not into scented serums, this will work for you. I also like that it is easy to apply, it's absorbed fast, it's not sticky and it does not leave an oily look.



The color of the serum is orange, but don't let it scare you because it doesn't appear orange on the skin. One thing good about any orange face product/base, is it cancels discoloration. It works great at concealing dark spots. So for makeup users, this shouldn't scare you at all. For those no makeup gals, they might get scared of the color, but once applied, it doesn't show.

As expected, my skin feels so smooth and smooth. It's only been a couple of weeks since I used the product and people around me are noticing that my skin is glowing. My dark spots have brightened a bit as well and the pores are slightly smaller.

Overall, this is a great serum. If you are looking for a product to fight the early signs of aging and lighten up sun spots, this orange serum is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin C Serum and Hyaluronic Acid through the Body Merry website and on Amazon.

Review: Cashmere Falls Heavenly Hydration Moroccan Oil


They say Argan Oil is the new gold. Why? Because it has beautifying properties that will keep you feeling and looking youthful from head to toe. I've been using Argan Oil for about a year now and I love how it tames my unruly hair. It even helped relieve my eczema. Today's discussion is about the Cashmere Falls Heavenly Hydration Moroccan Argan Oil.





Product Description

HEAVENLY HAIR CARE THAT LIVES UP TO ITS NAME... WITHOUT THE OILY MESS & ODOR OF OTHER ARGAN OIL PRODUCTS!

Imagine... the most radiant, soft & healthy hair imaginable--hair so absolutely luxurious and smooth that others can't help but stop and ask what your secret is.

This is not a fantasy. Cashmere Falls is helping thousands upon thousands discover the magnificent beauty and youthful glow that only our critically acclaimed no-drip serum can deliver... and all without that pungent, oily residue notorious for staining clothes and taking forever to wash off.

My Thoughts

Unlike the other Argan Oils that I'm used to, this one is a little creamy. It's definitely not like the oil formula I'm familiar with. I find this a bit harder to apply to hair and it requires more product.



But once on your hair, it becomes very soft and shiny; shiny in a way that it doesn't look oily. It also has no scent, which is a good thing because I don't like it messing up with the smell of my favorite shampoo.

Overall, I like this product because it keeps my wavy hair soft and tamed. If you are looking for a good Argan Oil to keep your skin and hair healthy, soft and smooth, this one is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Heavenly Hydration Moroccan Argan Oil through the Cashmere Falls website and on Amazon.

Review: NeoCell Collagen Beauty Builder


Our skin changes as we age. It loses its elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. Sun spots are also more visible and the pores, especially around the T zone area appear larger. Looking beautiful and youthful don't just happen when you slather on moisturizer and other beauty products on the skin. Sometimes, you also need to work on the inside to see better results on the outside. Good nutrition, plenty of fluids and collagen are a surefire way to improve the skin's youthful and healthy appearance. Today's discussion is about the NeoCell Collagen Beauty Builder.




Product Description

NeoCell Collagen Beauty Builder is the ultimate beauty-from-within supplement. This all-natural product delivers several beauty-enhancing ingredients, including:

-6,000 mg of NeoCell Collagen types 1 & 3 for radiant skin, thick hair and strong nails
-Biotin, a B vitamin critical for hair growth and strengthening nails
-Hyaluronic Acid, a water-loving nutrient that hydrates and promotes skin elasticity
-ALA, a potent antioxidant to protect cells from free radical damage
-Silica, a mineral involved in transporting nutrients and a key component in keeping hair healthy

Imagine a pill that helps improve the look and health of hair, skin and nails. It's here and it's NeoCell Collagen Beauty Builder! A more beautiful outside begins by creating a healthier inside.



My Opinion

Dark spots and enlarged pores are my main concerns. Although I am already in my late forties, the only wrinkles I have are the fine lines under my eyes and crows feet. When I started taking this beauty builder, I noticed that my skin has improved a lot. The dark spots are lighter, the fine lines are softer and the pores are slightly smaller. To think that it has only been a couple of weeks since I started taking it. My hair and nails also appear healthier. I also love that my skin looks well moisturized and plump.

Overall, I think this supplement works. My skin is healthier and it feels soft and smooth to the touch. If you are looking for a supplement to keep your skin healthy and beautiful, this is a good one to try.

Organic Vitamin C Moisturizer Review and Giveaway


I'm sure you already know the numerous benefits of Vitamin C. But did you know that it is also great for the skin, especially when applied topically? Yup, Vitamin C combats the signs of aging and brighten dark spots. Today's review is about the Organic Vitamin C Moisturizer by Made From Earth.




Product Description

The Vitamin C Moisturizer contains the highest possible concentration of Vitamin C, which is essential for maintaining smoothness and elasticity. Vitamin C encourages collagen production, which brightens and softens the skin. The Vitamin C Moisturizer may be worn under sunscreen, since Vitamin C boosts the effectiveness of the sunscreen. While the Vitamin C Moisturizer is excellent at helping prevent sunburn, it can also aid with hyperpigmentation, which is a discoloration of the skin from frequent sun exposure.

My Thoughts

The moisturizer has no scent and it has a creamy consistency. It's a little tacky, but it's absorbed fast. My skin felt smooth and soft right after application and I like that it doesn't leave an oily look. I use it in the morning and at night and my skin stays hydrated for a long time.

It's only been two weeks, but I'm already seeing some improvements. The enlarged pores near my T-zone are slightly smaller and my dark spots have brightened. There are fine lines under my eyes, but they are less noticeable now. I love how this product works and I'm sure it will continue to surprise me in the next weeks to come.

Overall, this product works great at keeping your skin supple and hydrated. If you are looking for a good moisturizer to battle the signs of aging, this one is worth investing in.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Organic Vitamin C Moisturizer through the Made From Earth website.

Review: Organic Eye Serum by Adeline


Although puffy eyes and dark circles are not a serious skin problem, a lot of women are obsessed to get rid of them because they make you look weary and older. I like using eye serums that have a cooling effect because they instantly relax tired eyes. Today, I am reviewing the Organic Eye Serum by Adeline.




Product Description

* EASY TO USE - just apply twice daily and enjoy tighter, toned, younger looking skin in the morning. Just 60 seconds a day is all it takes to reverse the signs of aging and turn heads with your radiant, youthful skin!
* IMAGINE having a smooth, even skin tone and a glowing complexion... even when you're not wearing makeup! Age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes fade effortlessly with just twice daily usage!
* NATURAL NUTRITION for your skin - Hyaluronic Acid Serum contains Retinol, a blend of Vitamin A for elasticity, collagen formation, and sun damage repair; Vitamin C for improved moisture, elasticity, and tone; Vitamin D to moisturize skin and promote healing; Vitamin E for anti-oxidant protection and non-greasy moisture!
* GENTLE on skin - will not sting or burn when applied! This is the best anti wrinkle and anti aging serum available on the market. Great for even sensitive skin!

My Thoughts

Constant lack of sleep makes my eyes look puffy and the skin around my eyes, dark. The eye serum by Adeline is packed nicely and I like that it comes with a pump for easy dispensing. The serum has no scent. I love the consistency, it's easy to apply, spreads easily and absorbs fast. Other serums leave a sticky feel, this one doesn't.



It's been a couple of weeks since I started using the eye serum and my skin feels really great. The skin around my eyes is well hydrated and the dark circles are almost gone. The puffiness has subsided as well. One bottle will go a long way as you only need a tiny bit of it for both eyes.

Overall, I like this serum. My skin feels soft and smooth to the touch and my eyes don't look weary anymore. If you are wanting to get rid of eye bags and dark circles, this eye serum is what you need.

Review: Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl by Adeline


Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s or older, the key to having soft and beautiful skin is to use a good moisturizer after cleansing and toning. Today's review is about an Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl by Adeline.




Product Description

- Our concentrated all-in-one formula is designed specifically to help you enjoy younger-looking skin without the hassles or harsh chemicals of other creams and moisturizers.
- Your skin will benefit from intense nourishment - our cream oxygenates, lifts, moisturizes, and boosts cell regeneration... almost instantly!
- Imagine enjoying bright, glowing, younger-looking skin in just minutes a day. That's what our Anti-Aging Moisturizer cream can do for you. In fact, we guarantee it!
- We use only the best ingredients in the perfect proportions to hydrate, lift, tone, and oxygenate your skin. We've created the ideal blend of Vitamin C, peptides, potassium, a unique O2 complex, and other ingredients to give you a radiance that will turn heads!
- Our products are made and packaged in an FDA-certified facility, so you know it's safe for your skin.

My Thoughts

First off, I love that it has a mild minty scent. It has a nice consistency and I love the bottle packaging. It comes with a pump, which I consider is a nice feature. Jar types require you to dip your finger/s in them and albeit your hands are clean, you can still have contact with the rest of moisturizer. Pumps work best because you only get what you need.



The moisturizer has a cooling effect. It is not sticky and it does not leave your skin looking glossy. My skin feels soft and plump and even when I woke up the next morning, I can feel that my skin is well hydrated. I've been using it more a couple of weeks now and I've noticed that the fine lines under my eyes have softened a bit. My dark spots are also starting to lighten.

I love this moisturizer and what it does for my skin. If you are looking for a good cream to combat the signs of aging, this one is worth giving a try. It's paraben free and only natural ingredients were used.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl through the Adeline website and on Amazon.

Review: Insulated Cola Shaped Water Bottle by Mira


Ever since I discovered the wonderful benefits of drinking infused water, I always make sure that I have my lemon water with me everywhere I go. Having an insulated water bottle is a must for me, especially that I like my water cold all the time. Today's discussion is about the Insulated Cola Shaped Water Bottle by Mira.

My Thoughts

The water bottle looks really nice both on the outside and the inside. It is made of stainless steel, but it is lightweight and easy to carry. I was very surprised when after more than 4 hours, my lemon water is still ice cold. And to think that I left the water bottle in the car while it was parked outside in the heat of the sun. Another great feature that I noticed is there is no condensation, so even if I put it inside my bag, my stuff will stay dry.

I also tested it with a hot drink. Just the same, my coffee stayed warm for a long time. There was no problem holding it in my hands because the bottle didn't get warm with the hot coffee.

Overall, I love this insulated water bottle. I can bring it anywhere with me without having to worry about keeping my drink at its ideal temperature.

Advanced Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner Review


I like trying out new things, especially when it comes to beauty products. And today, I am excited to share with you my latest product review, the Advanced Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner.




Product Description

Arvazallia Advanced Hair Repair Moisturizing Shampoo and Repair Daily Conditioner are Members of the Arvazallia Advanced Hair Repair System. These products are specially formulated to work in combination to Restore, Strengthen, and Revitalize hair that is dry or that has been damaged or weakened by heat styling, chemical processing, or coloring.

The advanced proprietary formulas, which are infused with both the highest quality cosmetic grade Argan oil and Macadamia oil nourishes hair with essential nutrients while fortifying and strengthening each strand of hair by sealing dents and divots found in dry and damaged hair. This promotes natural hair growth and improves the texture, elasticity, and manageability of your hair, giving it a beautiful healthy look and a luminous shine.

My Thoughts

Dying my hair to cover the gray areas on a monthly basis and blow drying made my hair dry and lose its shine. If not for the Argan Oil that I use daily, I'm pretty sure I will be worrying with damaged hair now. That is why I was very excited when I found out I will be reviewing the Advanced Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner by Arvazallia.

Both the shampoo and conditioner smell great and it made my hair smelling great as well until the next day. As soon as I've finished using the shampoo and conditioner, my hair felt very clean and soft. It is also easier to manage and I was really surprised that the duo tamed my frizzy hair. It's well moisturized, it's shiny without looking oily and it feels soft and silky to the touch.

Overall, I love the two products and I will definitely continue using them. They contain Macadamia Oil and Argan Oil to keep hair soft and glossy and they are paraben free, so you can be sure that it won't cause further damage to your hair and it will clean your hair without stripping the moisture.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Advanced Hair Repair Shampoo and Conditioner through Amazon.
