Review: Best Organic Argan Oil by Pure Body Naturals


I'd like to thank Pure Body Naturals for making this conversation possible and providing me with the samples to facilitate this review.




Product Description

The Essential Product for Keeping Your Body Radiant by Restoring Hair, Skin, Nails with Our Pure Argan Oil.

Pure Body Naturals Pure Argan Oil Will Give You:

• Revitalised, Repaired and Radiant Hair

  • Moisturized Hydrated Beautiful Skin 
  • Strong and Healthy Nails
  • Treating dry and unhydrated skin, eczema
  • Reduce Symptoms of Aging like Wrinkles and Puffiness
  • An all-round Healthy Beautiful Attractive Glow


My Thoughts

I really like using Argan Oil because it tames my frizzy hair and it leaves my hair and skin feeling soft. I'm used to its earthy scent, but I like this one better because it has no scent. I used it right after taking a shower and as expected, my hair is in place and my skin feels silky smooth. I also like the fact that nothing was added to make this oil. It's the pure Argan Oil and it's organic.

I also read in one of the reviews that the oil is great for eczema, too, so I did try it on my rough spot. I was surprised that the skin softened after a few days and it's starting to get better. I used to buy an expensive cream for this, but from now on, I will only be using Argan Oil.

Overall, I had a great experience with this oil. Not only does it moisturize skin, hair and nails, it works for eczema, too! I highly recommend this.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Best Organic Argan Oil through Pure Body Naturals website and on Amazon. It retails at $14.95.

Review: Retinol Serum with Vitamin C and Plant Acids by Instanatural


Retinol is touted for its ability to keep the skin young looking. No wonder a lot of women are going crazy over products that contain the potent ingredient, retinol. Today's discussion is about the Retinol Serum with Vitamin C and Plant Acids by InstaNatural.




Product Description

Our Age-Defying Retinol Serum contains a proprietary blend of antioxidants and nutrients that nourishes your skin while helping it to look younger and healthier. The serum contains Retinol (Vitamin A), which is an antioxidant that protects against free-radical damage that causes your skin to look and feel older. It is highly effective in reversing the appearance of sun damage and signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and rough texture. Vitamin C works synergistically to aid in this process of repairing and restoring damaged skin, while also stimulating new healthy skin to appear. Meanwhile, Hyaluronic Acid traps moisture in the skin to prevent further loss so you can enjoy a younger looking appearance with firmer, plumper skin.

Key Ingredients:
+ 2.5% Retinol
+ 20% Vitamin C
+ 10% Hyaluronic Acid
+ Plant & Fruit Acids

My Thoughts

The serum has a nice consistency and it's easy to apply. It smells like lemon and it dries up pretty easily. It leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft without looking oily. It's only been a few days, but I've already noticed a slight improvement on my pores and sunspots. They are a bit smaller and the sunspots are brighter. It's still too early to say about my crow's feet, but with continued used, I'm sure I won't be disappointed. I'm not new to InstaNatural and so far, I love the results I am getting from their products.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with the serum. It's gentle on the skin and it works effectively in combating the signs of aging. I recommend this.

Where to buy?

Retinol Serum with Vitamin C and Plant Acids can be purchased through the InstaNatural website and on Amazon.

Review: Vitamin D-3 Liquid Drops


I'm sure you've already heard that Vitamin D helps lift your spirits, but did you know that just 15 minutes a day of sunshine or supplementing with Vitamin D is already enough to beat the blues? Today's discussion is about the Vitamin D-3 Liquid Drops by Dalvia Wellness Labs.




Product Description

"Discover How Vitamin D Liquid May Boost Your Well Being and Mood, Have a Healthier Bones, Reduce Your Risk of (Osteoporosis and Arthritis)"

Vitamin D3 is required for the control and regulation of the minerals calcium and phosphorus found in your body. Vitamin D also plays an essential role in maintaining good bone structure. Vitamin D Liquid Drops by Dalvia Wellness Labs is an easy, reliable way for most people to get vitamin D; especially when you are living in a cold climate or you have a job where you don't get much exposure to the sun. Easy-to-take drops helps you to get the proper dose of vitamin D in your body.

1) Bone Health - Vitamin D3 can promote healthy bones, largely by assisting the absorption of calcium. If you have a vitamin D3 deficiency, particularly in your older years, it can lead to osteoporosis or osteomalacia [bone softening].

2) The Cold Depressing Months - During winter months, Dalvia Vitamin D3 can assist with lifting your mood which is associated with not getting enough sun. The Vitamin D research does seem to show a link between low levels of vitamin D in the blood and symptoms of depression.

3) Love It! Or Your Money Back - We stand behind all our wellness products, so if you don't like our Vitamin D Liquid for any reason, let us know and we'll give you your money back...AND you can keep the product or give it to someone else.

Directions

Shake well. Take one (1) drop, one to four times daily or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner. Best when taken with a fat-containing meal.

My Thoughts

This is the first time that I am trying a Vitamin D supplement in drops. I'm used to the big pills and I found it convenient because I didn't have to deal with the unpleasant taste most liquid meds have. I was a bit hesitant to try the drops for the first time because I was worried about the taste, but when I took a sniff and found out that it has no scent, I gave it a try. To my surprise, it has no taste. Well, if it's tasteless, then it's definitely more convenient than the big pills. You can even mix it with your drink if you don't feel like taking it directly.

What's great about the drops is, it contains no preservatives and it's totally gluten-free, so you can rest assure that it's safe. And because it's in liquid form, it's absorbed pretty quickly, so your body is getting the benefits sooner.

Overall, I like the liquid drops because it's very convenient and it's tasteless. Many of us suffer from mood disorders and Vitamin D definitely helps boost the mood. If you don't have the time to spend a few minutes outside for a dose of mood-boosting sunshine, the liquid drops are a good alternative.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin D-3 Liquid Drops through the Dalvia Wellness Labs and on Amazon. It's fairly priced at $18.97.

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.

Get More From Your Mascara




Dried out mascara? Don't throw it out just yet. You'll still get more from it with this little trick. Twist the tube completely closed and soak it in a mug full of hot tap water for an hour, changing out the water once or twice. The heat will gently melt the dry mascara inside the tube and turn it back into a liquid, so you'll get a few more uses out of it.

Review: Dead Sea Mud Mask by Instanatural


If you're like me who likes to detoxify and exfoliate once in a while, you know a good facial mask can do just that. That's what today's review is all about, the Dead Sea Mud Mask from InstaNatural.




Product Description

Dead Sea Mud Mask is an all-natural detoxifier and purifier that comes from the renowned and sacred Dead Sea. More than a million visitors each year flock to this extraordinary body of water in the Mediterranean, which contains many minerals beneficial to the skin, such as magnesium, sodium, bromine, potassium and calcium.

Once applied, this mud mask treatment starts working to absorb excess oil, dirt and toxins from the skin. It is great to expunge acne, pimples and blackheads. It also helps to restore an even skin tone for a smoother complexion. When used as a body treatment, the mud mask can soothe and relieve muscles aches and pains.

Whether used on the face or the body, our Dead Sea Mud Mask is a superb in-home spa treatment that will reveal more vibrant, refined, healthier skin.

My Opinion

The mud mask has no scent which was a surprise because some masks literally smell like mud. I have tried other mud masks in the past and compared to those, this mask has a very fine texture. Too fine that the consistency is almost gel-like. It is easy to apply and it dries up fast, too.




As soon as I've washed it off, I can feel that my skin is very smooth and soft. It's well moisturized and days after I've used the mud mask my skin is still plump and supple. I've used it a few times over the last two weeks and I noticed that my face is not as oily and it's clearer now. My skin feels healthy and well hydrated.

I love this mud mask and what it does on my face. If you want to have clearer skin, slough off dead skin cells and moisturize skin, you should try this mud mask. It's non irritating and it will make your skin healthier.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Dead Sea Mud Mask through the InstaNatural website and on Amazon. It retails at $25.95; a fair prize compared to other brands.

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: 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.

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.
