Saving Money Tips for Back to School Clothes


While some kids are just starting their school vacation, it's the time of the year again for some parents to prepare for the opening of classes next month. You've already included notebooks, paper, pencils, ball pens, crayons and rulers in your list.

Oh, I hear you, buying school supplies seem like a never ending process, I always feel this way whenever school opening comes near. And this is especially true when you have three or more kids. But school supply shopping doesn't end there and if you think school materials cost a fortune, think again because back to school clothes definitely cost even more.



To help you save money when buying back to school clothes, here are some tips.

Go through your kids' clothes and make an inventory. Purge the clothes that are too small for them and the ones that they wear anymore because of wear and tear. For the remaining clothes, decide which ones you would like to keep and which ones you should pass on to the next child. This will give you an idea of what your kids have and what you should buy.

It will also help to upgrade your kids' clothes. Last year's clothes may be a little outdated, but adding iron on stickers, ribbons and other accessories can transform them into hip and cool fashion statements. Pants that still fit them, but are too short can be cut and transformed into shorts or Capri pants. You may also add beads or rhinestones for a cool, new look.




After sorting out your kids' clothes, check your budget. Check how much money are you willing to spend for their back to school clothes. Set aside a budget not just for clothes, but for shoes and accessories as well. Once you have determined how much money you will spend, make sure you stick to your budget. Check out Zalora, an online shop that offers a wide range of clothing for children. You can check out their collection here. I like that their clothes are fashionable and very affordable.

Review: Bentonite Indian Healing Clay


I was very excited when I was invited to review another product from Pure Body naturals. I've used some of their products and I like how they work on my skin. I like to exfoliate once in a while, but you know how expensive it could get when you visit the spa. So, the next best thing is a healing clay.




Product Description

* BENTONITE CLAY IS ONE OF THE BEST HEALING CLAYS: Excellent for Face Skin Care, Deep Skin Pore Cleansing, Detoxifying And Revitalization.
* SODIUM BENTONITE CLAY 16 Oz: PURE Indian Healing Clay from WYOMING, USA - Premium Quality - No Additives
* Results Come Very Fast. Rids the body of toxins and acids. Discover the Secret of Ultra Youth Indian Healing Clay. This clay is highly effective at detoxifying the skin and promoting the overall natural beauty and health.
* Works on Oily and sensitive skin as well. Clay makes a fabulous facial mask, for shrinking pores, tightening and toning skin, removing impurities, and just making your skin look and feel great.

My Thoughts

I've tried a lot of mud masks, but this one is in powder form. I guess that is a good thing because you will only mix what you need and powders have a longer shelf life. I followed the instructions carefully and mixed 1 tsp of the powder with water. The paste was too thick, so I added more water. I was surprised that I had more than what I needed. The mixture I made was probably enough for 4 people. Next time, I should use just a quarter of a teaspoon.



So, together with my SIL, we applied the mask and waited for it to dry.




Twenty minutes later, our skin felt tight and we just loved the cooling effect. I washed my face as usual and I loved how my skin feels soft and smooth. I've used it a couple of times a week for two weeks and I noticed that my sun spots and acne marks have lightened. It also says in the description that it's great for acne and pimples as well. I will let my son use this and see if it will help clear his skin.

Overall, I like the healing clay and what it does to my skin. If you are looking for a good product to clean and revitalize your skin, this is a good buy.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Bentonite Indian Healing Clay through Amazon. A jar is retailed at $8.49.

Review: Retinol Complex with Vitamin C


If you have been following my blog, you will notice that I love reviewing beauty products. Products that beautify skin and help delay the signs of aging. Today's review is about the Retinol Complex with Vitamin C by Ev'amay.



Product Description

Retinol Complex with Vitamin C? Best anti-aging/anti-wrinkle serum for face, neck & decollete to enhance your skin care regime. Quality beauty products without cruelty. Proven skin care containing moisture-binding & anti-inflammatory ingredients.

Stimulates renewal of skin cells & improves collagen & elastin production. Helps skin look younger, firmer, brighter and healthier. Smoothes & softens rough skin texture. Quality guaranteed!



My Thoughts

This looks like an expensive product because of the pretty bottle. It comes with a pump for easy dispensing and a single pump is good enough for the entire face. I like the consistency, it's easy to apply and is absorbed quickly. It is not sticky but, it does leave a little shine. Another thing that I like is the mild floral-minty scent. It's not overpowering and it works well with makeup.

I've been using it for more than a week and so far, I like what it does to my skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and well hydrated. I also noticed that my pores have slightly reduced and my dark spots have brightened. I will continue to use the serum and I'm sure it will continue to amaze me.

Overall, this is a great product. If you are looking for a product to fight the early signs of aging, I would recommend that you try this.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Retinol Complex with Vitamin C through the Ev'amay website and on Amazon.

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.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the NeoCell Collagen Beauty Builder supplements through the NeoCell website and on Amazon. It's fairly priced at $14.68.

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.

Made From Earth also partnered with me to give away one jar to a lucky reader.

Prize: 1 jar Organic Vitamin C Moisturizer

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.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Organic Eye Serum through the Adeline website and on Amazon. The serum is fairly priced at $35.25.
