Review: Omni Herbals' Raspberry Ketone Blast

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

For the weight that just won't budge like mine, I was glad I had been given an opportunity to review Omni Herbals' Raspberry Ketone Blast. I have heard of this product before and I was curious on how the red jewels can actually help shed off pounds, so when Tomoson featured this for review, I immediately applied for it. Glad I was accepted. My sample arrived pretty quickly; after I was approved, it was shipped in a matter of days.

I'm not one of those women who would take pills right away to lose weight, I just had to try this one because a lot of people claim it is safe and I needed a boost. For those of you who frequent my blog, I'm sure you already know how I had been struggling to lose weight. I work out at home for 20 minutes daily and cut back on my food intake, but I had not lost a pound. It must be because of perimenopause that my thyroid had become inactive. For years, I have done that and it took me some time to accept that no matter what I do, it will be difficult for me to lose the pounds. Working out for me now is to be healthy and feel good about myself. I don't want to think about shedding pounds anymore because it will just frustrate me. Then the chance to try Raspberry Ketone Blast came. I have read so much about this product and even Dr. Oz says taking it may not be harmful.

What I LIKE about the product? It's all natural and it's safe. I've been taking 2 capsules daily for 3 weeks now and although I didn't lose during the first week, I felt more energetic. I also noticed that I didn't feel hungry very often so its claim to help curb cravings and invigorate you is true. It was on the second week that I started shedding off pounds and really to me, this is already a miracle. Imagine not losing for years despite working out and eating so little. From XL I am now down to L and with continuous use, I am sure I'll finally get to my target weight.

What I DON'T LIKE about the product? Nothing.

Would I recommend it? Definitely! I forgot to mention that I am also suffering from hypertension due to perimenopause and it has not affected my blood pressure in any way. It is also safe to use with your other supplements and medications.

Minimize Pores Naturally

You can't change the size of your pores, but there is definitely something you can do to minimize them. And yes, you can do it naturally. Read on.

Pores become larger in appearance because of dirt and debris and when they are clogged with dead skin cells. This makes your complexion look dull, rough, and dry. Big pores are discouraging but you can help make them look a lot smaller by using a pore minimizer that works to open up the pores and clear away dirt and debris and slough off dead skin cells.

For a natural home remedy. Simply combine lemon juice, rose water, and cucumber. Peel and crush cucumber then add several drops of lemon juice. Add a teaspoon of rose water and mix together. Put the blend over two separate layers of a thin cloth, such as cheese cloth, and place it directly over your face. Allow the blend to remain for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the cloth and then thoroughly rinse your face.

As much as possible, avoid using an astringent. It can dry out skin and lead to overproduction of oil within the glands, and can irritate pores causing them to enlarge. If you feel you must follow up with an astringent to thoroughly clean your face, try witch hazel instead. It's a natural, gentle astringent and won't be harsh on your skin.

A Good Reed

For someone like me who doesn't have an idea what makes a good reed, finding out more information online is really a great help. My nephew plays the oboe and according to his music teacher, we can buy jones oboe reed medium at Musicians Friend. My nephew agrees that this is a good reed, still, I owe it to his mom who works abroad to find out if that reed is really good and that they'll get their money's worth. My research showed that this is a good one. Most of it's users love it and it's also cheaper than other brands.

Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I've never really paid much attention on my skin until I turned 40. I used to simply wash my face with a facial cleanser and that's it. I know I should have used a toner and a moisturizer years ago to delay the signs of aging, but it was only recently that I started using them. I am glad that despite my age (I'm 46) I don't see any fine lines or wrinkles yet, but I do have those tiny bits of dark spots from acne scars. If there's anything really that I need to improve on my skin, those are the dark spots. I've had skin peeling treatments before but they only lightened the spots. Then I was offered to give Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener a try, so I thought, why not?

Oh, I was so excited when it arrived in my mail. I'm not the kind of person who likes to try a beauty product just because it's new or because someone popular is using it. I would rather use a product that's made from all natural ingredients and clinically tested.

I may not have cared for my skin early on but I wouldn't risk trying on stuff right away without doing my homework. Here are some of the ingredients that Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener contains.

  • licorice root
  • vitamin C 
  • mulberry grape juice 
  • daisy flower 
  • alpha arbutin - a functional active ingredient that lightens skin

All those are safe and natural ingredients that won't harm your skin. Plus, it contains sunblock to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun.

So, did I use it? Of course! I told you I was excited, didn't I? I was expecting a white cream, instead I got a cream with a light beige tint on my finger when I pumped it. And it's not scented, which I like because I am already using a flower-scented toner.

One pump is already enough to use on your face and neck. The instructions clearly say that it should be used twice daily, so I applied in the morning and once again at night before bed. I love that the cream is a little runny and not so heavy. It's light on the skin and just perfect for our hot and humid weather. I forgot to mention that I have oily skin and using products that are "heavy" turns out to be messy after hours of application. This one is just perfect.

I thought I'd be disappointed at first because when I applied it on my face for the first time, it was a bit oily. But I noticed that the more I rub it on my skin it became less oily and once fully absorbed, there was no oily feeling at all, just soft, supple skin. I've been using it for a few days now and I have to say I love how it works on my skin. The brown spots have lightened and I'm sure with continued use they will disappear. I don't use makeup so I can't really tell if it works perfectly under makeup, but considering the light consistency of the cream, I'm sure it will.

If you're aiming for an even skin tone, Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener is a great pick. A 1.0 fl oz. bottle only costs $49 at the Ageless Derma website.
