Review: Total Hair Repair Oil by Foxbrim


Thick, wavy and frizzy, no wonder my hair is hard to tame. Add to that the perming, hair dyes and using a lot of hair products; that made my hair really dry and coarse. Today, I am reviewing Foxbrim's Total Hair Repair Oil. Foxbrim is one of my favorite products when it comes to skin care. Let's see if their hair repair oil is as great as their other products.



Product Description

Why use Foxbrim's Total Hair Repair Oil?

Foxbrim's Total Hair Repair Oil combines nutrient-rich plant oils to effectively nourish and completely restore hair. Feed your hair with nature's best. Now's the time to replenish dry and damaged hair to give you the beautifully, strong, healthy looking hair you desire and deserve.

Key natural ingredients include:
+ Organic Argan Oil
+ Jojoba Oil
+ Shea Butter
+ Grapeseed Oil
+ Sunflower Oil

The product will be sent from Amazon's warehouse.

My Opinion

The oil has no scent. A little goes a long way for this one because you don't have to use a lot. A few drops is all I needed for my thick mane. It works as a styling liquid and it's easy to apply. I love that it softened the strands and it gave instant luster to my dry hair. My hair became smooth and it definitely looks healthier. I've been using this daily for a week now and I love that my hair doesn't feel dry anymore.




In the photos above, my brother modeled for me. The first photo shows his hair without the Total Hair Repair Oil.  The second photo was taken after applying the oil.

I'm so glad I was given a chance to try this product. I steered clear of using oils on my hair because I didn't want it to look greasy. I was very wrong because although this is an oil, it's non greasy and my hair didn't look oily. If you are looking for a product for your dry and damaged hair, this is a good one to try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Total Hair Repair Oil through Amazon. It's currently priced at $18.95. A fair one I would say, considering you don't have to get treatments from a salon anymore.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Review: Vitamin C Serum with Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid by Yumi Beautiful


A Vitamin C Serum is definitely a must have in your beauty arsenal. It does not only leave your skin feeling soft, but it also helps reduce enlarged pores and brighten age spots. Today's review is about the Vitamin C Serum with Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid by Yumi Beautiful.




Product Description

Say Goodbye to Dull, Dry Looking Skin with this Unique 25% Active C Formula Yumi Signature Antioxidant Skin Care Serum is unlike any other Vitamin C Serum you've tried.

It's based in soothing Aloe vera with hyaluronic acid to intensely hydrate your skin; and contains a stable and effective form of Vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate), along with 14 luxurious botanicals and superfruit extracts, including:

♦Pomegranate
♦Green Tea
♦Blackberry
♦Cranberry
♦Acai Berry
♦Goji Berry
♦Noni
♦and Kale

You might find a few of these organic botanicals in most expensive anti-aging skin care products and facial serums.

Only Yumi Has Them All

♦Fight free radical damage
♦Minimize the effects of environmental stressors on your skin
♦Reduce the appearance of aging
♦Hydrate and infuse a wholesome, healthy glow.




My Opinion

The serum is very light and it has no scent. Instead of the usual glass dropper, this one comes with a pump, so it's easier to use. It dries up pretty quickly and it absorbs fast, so you have to hastily work it on your skin to cover a larger area before it dries up. I love that it does not leave a greasy look. I follow it up with a moisturizer and it works well under makeup.

The serum leaves my skin feeling soft, silky smooth and well hydrated. It's probably because of the Vitamin C, Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid that's working all together. I've been using this serum for a week now and although I have been using a Vitamin C Serum (from another brand) for months, the pores near my nose continue to shrink. I also noticed that my sun spots continue to fade. I will keep on using this because I love the results I am getting from this serum.

If you are looking for a product to help fade age spots and combat enlarged pores, this one is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin C Serum through Amazon.

Review: Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer by Oleavine


A gentle facial cleanser, a toner and a good moisturizer will keep your skin soft, smooth and young looking. I used to be lazy when I was younger, but when I turned forty and the signs of aging are starting to show up, I knew I can't afford to be lazy. And now that I'm used to it, my skin feels very dry and tight whenever I forget to apply moisturizer. I've tried different brands and I like the ones that do not leave a greasy look. Today's review is about an Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer by Oleavine.




My Opinion

This moisturizer is bottled really nicely and it looks very elegant. It comes with a pump, making it easier for you to get a dollop. One pump is enough to cover the face and neck area. It has no scent, so it's great for those who have allergies and for those who apply makeup. Although I like moisturizers with mild scents, this one's okay with me. It has a nice, creamy texture and it absorbs pretty quickly.




The cream does not leave an oily look and my skin feels silky smooth and really soft. I've been using this for more than a week and I've noticed a slight improvement on my sun spots. They are a bit lighter and are less noticeable. I also noticed a slight reduction on my enlarged pores around the nose area. As for my fine lines and wrinkles, I have not seen any difference. I guess it's still too early to tell since it' only been more than a week. I will continue to use this and I'm sure I will enjoy the results more in the weeks to come.

I love the fact that this is made from organic and natural ingredients and it suits all skin types. If you are looking for a good moisturizer to keep the skin supple and young looking, this is a great product to try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Anti-Aging Facial Moisturizer through the Oleavine website and on Amazon. At $19.95, I say it's fairly priced.

Review: Lash enhancing Mascara by EnvyDerm


If you peek inside my purse and check my beauty kit, all you will see is a lipstick, an eyeliner and a mascara. These three complete my daily makeup, so I was very pleased when I found out I was approved to review the Lash enhancing Mascara via Tomoson.




Product Description

Luxurious Volume Mascara for lash enhancement and conditioning. Enriched with Peptides, Moroccan Argan Oil, Vitamins and Amino Acids.

My Opinion

The mascara is packaged really nicely. As you can see in the photos, the box and the container looks elegant and expensive. I like that it has a flexible/bendable brush, that makes it easy for you to apply. Also, the brush has a somewhat hourglass shape. Regular mascara brushes makes it difficult to separate the lashes; the hourglass-shaped brush separates the lashes effectively.





I like the consistency of the mascara. It is not too thick, not too thin and it is very easy to apply. It also dries up fast, so you don't have to worry about smears. Some mascaras make my eyes teary. This one didn't and it didn't irritate my eyes.

Another great big plus is it's Paraben free. That means there are no chemical preservatives added to the makeup. Another great thing that I noticed is that it doesn't make the lashes hard. Even hours after application, my lashes still feel soft. The conditioning ingredient really works to soften the lashes.

Lastly, I love that it's easy to remove. Sometimes you have to rub your eyes a little forcefully to remove other mascaras. With the Lash enhancing Mascara, you only need to swipe your eyes gently with a cotton damped with a makeup remover.

Overall, I had a great experience with this mascara. I love how it enhances my eyes and make my long lashes appear longer.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Lash enhancing Mascara through the EnvyDerm website. The 7ml/ 0.24 fl.oz bottle is fairly priced at US$29.00.

Review: Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum by Yumi Beautiful


While Retinol can help eliminate the signs of aging, it's not for everyone. There are those who experience side effects such as sensitivity, peeling, dryness and redness. It's a good thing there is an alternative to Retinol that delivers the same effects, plus more. Today's review is about the Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum, A Retinol Alternative by Yumi Beautiful.




Product Description

- Brighter, smoother, more youthful looking skin.
- Reduced appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Minimized flaws and imperfections.

My Opinion

The first thing I noticed about the serum is the packaging. It's packaged really nicely and it looks like an expensive product. Unlike other serums, this one comes with a pump; it's easier to dispense and there is less spills. You tend to waste a few drops with a glass dropper that is why I think a pump is better. I like the very light and fresh scent and it has a nice consistency.

As soon as I've washed my face with a cleanser and toner, I applied the serum. I massaged it in until it was completely absorbed. It dried up pretty quickly and my face felt smooth and soft. I didn't think there was a need for moisturizer because my face felt hydrated.

I don't have sensitivity to Retinol, so I really can't tell the difference. But I like that it's very mild and I love what it does to my skin. It's only been a week, but people around me are noticing that my skin is brighter. I'm pretty sure that in the weeks to come, I will continue to enjoy the benefits of using this serum more.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this serum. If you suffer from sensitivity with Retinol, this is a great product to try. I recommend this!

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum through Amazon.

Review: African Shea Nourishing Face and Eye Cream by Bare Naked Skin


I love it when I get to try new products for the skin. Today's review is about Bare Naked Skin's African Shea Nourishing Face and Eye Cream. I'm really excited about this product because of its exotic ingredients.





Product Description

All Natural, Rejuvenating Face And Eye Cream
- All Natural Ingredients Means No Adverse Skin Reactions
- Non Greasy Formula Leaves Your Skin Feeling Moisturized But Not Greasy
- Truly an Oasis of Well-Begin For Desert Like Skin
- Improves The Elasticity of the Skin
- Exotic ingredients with unrefined Shea Butter -Certified Organic ingredients




My Opinion

Although it says it is fragrance free, it has a very mild fresh scent. Almost citrus-like and I actually love the scent. It stays on the skin for a while after application. It has an oily finish and I don't think this is good for daytime use or under makeup. It leaves the skin looking shiny. The cream is best used at night. I woke up with my skin feeling moisturized, supple and very soft. This is definitely great to use this winter when my skin gets extra dry.

The cream has that gritty consistency, but as you rub it between your finger or apply it on your face, the warmth of your finger melts it into oil. If you're familiar with coconut oil, it has the same texture in its solid form.




Overall, I had a great experience with the cream and as you can see in the photos, it's packaged really nicely. I wouldn't advise you though, to use it at day time as it leaves a shiny look.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the African Shea Nourishing Face and Eye Cream through the Bare Naked Skin website and on Amazon. The cream is fairly priced at $19.00.

I am also giving away a jar of African Shea Nourishing Face and Eye Cream to one lucky winner. Simply join below using the giveaway tool.

Review: Home Professional Teeth Whitening and Remineralization Gel by Dr Song


Having whiter teeth not only boosts your confidence, but having an attractive smile makes a person more appealing to the opposite gender. A lot of us are obsessed about having whiter teeth and it's a good thing this procedure has become more affordable and can be done at home. Today's review is about Dr Song's Home Professional Teeth Whitening kit. I suffer with sensitivity, so I was also sent a kit of Dr Song Remineralization Gel 8 Syringes Teeth Treatment.

Product Description

Dr Song Home Professional Teeth Whitening kit
- Good for over 50 applications, professional teeth whitening take home kit.
- 44% Carbamide Peroxide, Gel Applicator, White LED light, & thermoform trays
- Meets USP standards & FDA compliant





Dr Song Remineralization Gel 8 Syringes Teeth Treatment
- Recommended to use with teeth whitening products to desensitize teeth during treatment
- Reduces teeth sensitivity during teeth whitening, restore minerals, and helps strengthen enamel with Sodium Fluoride and Potassium Nitrate
- comes with 8 syringes, good for 50 treatments






My Thoughts

The whitening stuff works pretty well. I've used it for 5 consecutive days and I've noticed a great improvement. I used to smoke and I drink a lot of coffee, so that made my teeth yellowish. Although I've quit smoking years ago, it didn't improve the color of my teeth. It only took 5 days for Dr Song to make my teeth whiter.

I've read in some reviews about the issues they had with the blue light. I used it every time and not once did I have issues with it. I will continue to use this product and I am sure I'll be more amazed in the weeks to come.

As for the Remineralization Gel, I like its minty taste. I say it works because it did help my sensitive teeth. Yes, I can still feel sensitivity in some areas, but they are not as sensitive as before. With continued use, I think it will improve a lot.

Overall, I had a great experience with the whitening treatment and the remineralization gel. The whitening treatment has done a great job at improving the color of my teeth and the remineralization gel made my teeth less sensitive.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Whitening Treatment and Remineralization Gel through the Dr Song website and on Amazon. The Whitening Treatment is fairly priced at $29.97 and the Remineralization Gel at $9.99.

Review: Ultra Lift Treatment by Foxbrim



It was only when I turned forty that I started to get more concerned about my skin. Not that I'm afraid to look old, but at least I wanted to do it in a graceful way. I like to try on different products and while there are many products that don't work, I've found some products that are effective. Today's review is about Foxbrim's Ultra Eye Lift. I'm not new to Foxbrim because I have used most of their products and my favorite so far is their Vitamin C serum.




Product Description


  •  Effectively support the healing and repair response in your skin.
  •  Drastically refine and remove appearance of wrinkles.
  •  Restore your skin elasticity and firmness.
  •  Even skin texture and tone.


My Opinion

The first thing I noticed is it's packaged really nicely. It comes with a pump and the pump dispenses just enough to cover both eyes. It has a nice consistency and it is easy to apply.

It's only been a week and I am already noticing some improvements on my crow's feet. The lines have diminished and even my dark circles have improved. They have lightened and have become less puffy. The skin around my eyes has improved a lot as well. It's very soft, smooth and well moisturized. I'm sure I will enjoy this product more in the weeks to come.

Recommendation

If you are looking for a product to improve those fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the puffiness of your eyes and brighten dark circles, this is a good one to try. It's gentle and not irritating and it works for all skin types.

Where to buy?

Foxbrim's Ultra Eye Lift can be purchased through Amazon. It's fairly priced at $22.99.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
