Review: Skinue Skincare Products


Now that I am in my forties, taking care of my skin is very important. I didn't give it much attention when I was younger, but it's not yet too late to give it all the attention it needs. Although I don't have wrinkles yet, crow's feet and sun spots have appeared. There's no way I can get rid of crow's feet without laser or surgery, but there are skin care products that can help diminish the appearance. It's the sun spots that I would really love to get rid of.

I like trying out new products to see what would work best on my skin. I've tried Argan oil, yogurt and goat's milk, but never have I imagined that I would be using Camel's milk. Yup, that's what Skinue is all about. Cleopatra must have known then that aside from gold, camel milk works wonders on the skin. It has healing properties that help fight off infections and antibodies that fight acne. Science also proves it that the milk's alpha-hydroxy acids soften the skin and keeps it supple, thus preventing wrinkles.





Skinue offers a line of skincare products to address different skin imperfections -- Skinue Gel, Skinue Serum, Skinue Cream, Skinue Facial Wash, Skinue Dry Skin, Skinue Brightening Gel and Skinue Massage Gel.



Facial Wash

I like facial washes that lather up really nicely and this is one of them. It smells terrific and I love how my skin felt soft and smooth after washing.



Brightening Cream

I told you I have sun spots and I want to get rid of them. I have used other brightening creams before, but nothing worked. It's either my skin reacted to it or it didn't brighten the dark spots at all. It might be too early to say, but I'm starting to notice some improvements. The sun spots are still there, but my skin has a more even tone.



Serum

I gave it to my son who's skin is breaking out. He says the serum is gentle on his skin and not drying at all.



Dry Skin Lotion

Just like their other line of products, this one smells nice too. My skin felt really soft and smooth. The effect is long lasting as well. I used it in the morning and when night time came, my skin is still looking supple.



Massage Gel

I don't normally use a massage gel because I feel that I don't really need to, but I had to try, so I can share my views with you. It's easy to apply and it's not messy at all. I love the minty scent and as soon as you apply the gel, it soothes the skin instantly. Now, why didn't I use massage gels before?



Acne Gel

It was also given to my son. He loved that the gel didn't leave the affected area looking shiny unlike the acne creams that he has used. The effect is fast as well because it dried up the acne pretty quickly.



Acne Cream

Like the serum and the gel, the cream is gentle on the skin. My son's skin feels smooth and supple. He commutes to and from school, this cream will help keep those ugly bumps from coming back.

Both he and I had a wonderful experience with Skinue. All of their products were gentle on skin and I love how they moisturized my skin. If you're looking for a new product to try, Skinue won't disappoint.

Review: Artesio Soft Touch Electric Pepper Mill and Grinder


I've had it with pepper mills. Over the years, I think I already bought more than 5 of these and they didn't last very long. Earlier this week, an Artesio Soft Touch Electric Pepper Mill and Grinder courtesy of Ozeri arrived on my doorstep for evaluation purposes. I got pretty excited because it's the first time that I'm going to use an electric pepper grinder and I feel like I'm a real chef. :)




Product Description

The Ozeri Artesio Electric Grinder by Ozeri is the ultimate accompaniment to any dining setting where a touch of fresh pepper (or salt) goes a long way. Designed to operate effortlessly, the Artesio combines an adjustable ceramic grinding mechanism with a battery-powered engine for push-button easy dispensing of pepper (or salt). Marketed almost exclusively by word of mouth, the battery powered Artesio consistently wins applause with its ability to grind peppercorns, salt and spices. The Artesio Electric Grinder by Ozeri also boasts an ultra-soft, non-slip grip and a built-in light for low-lit dining ambiances. The Artesio requires no assembly and runs on 4 AA batteries (not included).

Durable ceramic mechanism easily grinds peppercorns, salt and spices seasons accurately with the adjustable ceramic grinding mechanism that adjusts from fine to coarse Features an ultra soft textured non-slip grip Includes a built-in light that automatically turns on for clear and precise seasoning See-through container makes monitoring pepper level easy and reveals the grinding action Satisfaction Guaranteed

My Thoughts

Like I mentioned earlier, I feel like a real chef! I've seen a lot of chefs on TV using an electric pepper mill and I thought it's really cool. One easy touch and there goes your freshly ground pepper. Please watch my video below.

video


Pros

The design looks great, you can even use it on the table with your guests. It's easy to use and a light touch is all you need to operate it. The Artesio Soft Touch Electric Pepper Mill and Grinder is very affordable. It sells for only $19.16 on Amazon. I've seen other brands and most of them cost around $40-$50. It works for salt and other spices as well.

Cons

None so far. I've had it for only a few days and used it only several times. It worked all the time and by the way it was designed, I think it's durable enough to last a long time.

Recommendation

A very handy tool to use in the kitchen and on the table. The Artesio Soft Touch Electric Pepper Mill and Grinder saves you a lot of time than traditional pepper mills.

The Secret to Youthful Skin


I am sure you already know that there’s no such thing as the fountain of youth, well the good news is there are actually some ways to help you look younger. But with the tons of skin care products in the beauty aisles touting new and effective ingredients, how would you know which is full of gimmicks and which of them really works? Hmm, worry not because according to experts, the easiest way to know if a product is a scam is through the labels. Avoid products that claim to give results in a matter of days and products that claim to give you results like you just had a Botox or a Laser surgery. Experts say, if looking youthful is that easy, the Botox and Laser business would have died years ago.



The products that are proven effective are topical retinoids, peptides, growth factors and bleaching creams. All these can all help restore your skin's elasticity to look more youthful. The Delfogo Brand of Skin Care is the name I trust, when it comes to taking care of my skin. I don't want to make any claims that my fine lines and wrinkles disappeared when I started using Delfogo Skin Care Products because as I have mentioned earlier, there is no such product that can turn back the clock in an instant. I have to admit though, that the lines have diminished. One more thing I love about their line of products is their effect on my skin. It feels soft and supple, an essential key to looking youthful. I do get a lot of compliments about the healthy glow on my skin and that I don't look like I'm forty six.

The true secret to looking young and I have written tons of articles about this already, is proper skin care and using the right products. And if you're wondering what proper skin care is, that's washing your face with a cleanser, then following it up with a toner to take away dirt and debris before applying a moisturizer. Simple, isn't it? There's no need to buy the most expensive ingredients, the best products for me, I found at Delfogo.com. The best time to start with proper skin care is when you're in your twenties, but for anti-aging products, start in your thirties. This is the time when skin cell production starts to slow down and also the time that fine lines and wrinkles start to set in.

Review: Bonapiel AntiAging Moisturizer with Peptides, Matrixyl and Vitamin E



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

I've never really paid attention to taking care of my skin when I was younger, so when I turned forty a few years ago, I panicked. Not that I am afraid to look old, I just want to still look my best even if I'm ageing. At forty six, I am lucky not to have wrinkles yet even if I didn't take care of my skin well, although I have to admit that I have crow's feet. But, with proper care and the right moisturizing cream, I am positive that those lines will become less visible and I'll be able to delay the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I like trying out different creams and moisturizers to see what works well on my skin. So, when an opportunity to review Bonapiel, an anti-aging moisturizer with peptides, matrixyl and vitamin E on Tomoson opened up, I applied. Glad I was approved. I ordered it through Amazon and the product was sent to me within three days.






Product Description

Wake Up and Enjoy The Luminosity and Radiance of Your Skin

This weightless formula combats surface dehydration without leaving on your skin an oily or sticky residue.

Bonapiel's Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl is a superior hydrator with added anti-aging benefits that helps reduce the visual severity of deep wrinkles and fine lines for a younger looking skin.




What It Can Do For You:

  • Supports natural collagen production and elastin synthesis and goes beyond retinol to firm, smooth, and visibly lift your face.
  • The revitalizing blend of Vitamin E and Matrixyl 3000 hydrates stressed and aging skin without adding oil.
  • Gives your skin the clarity, smooths fine lines and mattifies without making skin look dull. It moistures without leaving a greasy feeling or look.
  • Dramatically improves skin firmness.
  • With daily application, Bonapiel's Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl, moisturizes, improves texture and clarity, and contributes to a more beautiful, balanced, and glowing complexion.

Application

Apply a small amount onto clean skin and massage gently in soft circular motions until absorbed.

My Opinion

I like that the cream is light and it dries up pretty fast as you massage it onto the skin. There is no sticky feeling and my face didn't look shiny at all. I have oily skin and one reason that I stayed away from creams and moisturizers back then is because I didn't want my face to glisten after application. As for my crow's feet, I think it's still too early to tell. I don't think there is a moisturizer that delivers results after only a few days of use. I still have to see and will update you guys on how it worked for me.


Update: It's been a month and I'm glad to see improvements on my crow's feet. The lines, although still visible have lightened. I'm not really expecting it to totally eliminate the lines, but I'm amazed with the results. This moisturizer definitely delivers!


Pros

It is rich, but very light. Skin feels instantly smooth and velvety after application. The moisturizing cream has a pleasant minty smell. To me, that is a plus. I hate using creams that smell like makeup. It has a nice packaging as well. By just looking at the bottle, you can tell that it looks expensive.

Cons

I honestly don't find anything I don't like in this awesome cream.

Recommendation

If you're looking to moisturize your skin and make it look youthful, Bonapiel Moisturizing Cream is for you. It leaves skin supple without making it look shiny.

For more information about the Bonapiel Anti-Aging Moisturizer with Matrixyl and their other products, please visit Bonapiel. Valued at $80, you can now get it on Amazon at $35.95 with free shipping. For updates, you may like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Doing Good in School

While he's busy preparing for his exam week, our son has absolutely no idea that his dad and I are already checking some stores for danelectro bass guitars. He wanted that for Christmas but we weren't able to buy because we didn't have the budget for it. Hubs got his bonus last week and I've got some extras from my blogging earnings, so we thought we'd get him a guitar for doing well in school. He's in his first year and taking up Medical Technology. We've seen how hard he's working and we both think a bass guitar is a nice reward.

Review: LUXE Evening cane with hand-stained wooden handle and precision tip


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

I was recently sent a LUXE Evening cane with hand-stained wooden handle and precision tip for evaluation purposes. I have mentioned in the past that my husband suffers from glaucoma and progressive myopia and he has difficulties walking in the dark. So when an opportunity to review the Luxe evening cane opened up at Tomoson, I applied.





Product Description

Hearken back to a time when a cane was a symbol of elegance, and a finely-crafted walking stick was a must-have fashion accessory for all sophisticated ladies and gentlemen.

LUXE is our premium cane; a handsome, brooding modern incarnation of the classic vintage cane, featuring wide hand-stained Baltic birch wood handle, engineered ergonomically for optimal pressure, balance, and grip.

The cane handle offers reassuring sensory input of touching wood, and subtle exposure of wood grain grows more beautiful with age. The cane handle is hand-stained so that the color of the wood shows through beautifully.

The LUXE cane has a single-piece, non-adjustable shaft made of high-strength aluminum; the same grade of aluminum used in bicycle frames. Super-durable and powder-painted, just like a bike, it offers a much more stable alternative to the adjustable cane.

The cane has an air-cushioned rubber-based TIP made from the same material used in hiking boot and running shoe soles for maximum stability, smooth walking at any speed, and superior grip on the most uneven surfaces.

Meant to last a lifetime, the LUXE cane is a distinguished companion poised to heighten its owner’s every excursion with elegance and grace - from cocktail party to art opening to stroll in the park or walk to the corner store.

My Opinion

The cane I received was perfect for my husband's height. I was asked to choose the size of the cane and sure enough when I chose Medium, it was perfect for him. Getting the right size is a real plus.

During the few nights that we were out, it helped him walk without difficulties. I used to hold and guide him especially when the area is dark, but with the cane, he walked on his own without struggling.


Pros

This cane is perfect whether you need balance or you need help to compensate for an injury or disability. The birch wood handle also allows for easy grip.

Cons

Hubs didn't find anything wrong with the cane. In fact, he loves that it's finely crafted and doesn't create so much noise because of its air-cushioned rubber base.

Recommendation

The Luxe Evening cane is perfect for those who are looking to improve their balance. It's made by Sabi and can be purchased at Amazon.

He wants a new guitar!

My son learned how to play the guitar with the best beginner acoustic guitar from guitar center. My sister bought it for him as a gift. He didn't know how to play at all when the guitar was handed to him, but because he was eager to learn, he searched online for tutorials. He learned pretty quickly and he can now play a lot of songs. He is now saving for a new acoustic guitar.

Review: Haven Series Collection (Books 1 & 2) by D.C. Akers


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

I downloaded an ePub copy of Haven Series Collection (Books 1 & 2) by D. C. Akers for review purposes. I'm a great fan of magic, so I was very excited when I found out that I was accepted to review the book.



Product Description

Haven Series Collection (Books 1 & 2)

Known as a place of refuge, Haven is a sanctuary for those with supernatural abilities. Decades of peace between the Witches, Vampires, Goblins, Elves, and Orcs is coming to an end. Now the once tranquil world is shrouded in deception and corruption. Dark secrets tear at the very fabric of their alliance, giving way to an evil that stirs in the shadows. Exhilarating and utterly gripping, the HAVEN series is an action-packed journey full of suspense, magic, mystery, and intrigue.

A Stranger Magic (Book 1):

Sam Dalcome thinks he is so completely average that no one ever notices him. Until he discovers a mysterious stranger outside his home. Bewildered, he tries to uncover the stranger’s intentions. But Sam is sidetracked when he and his friend Travis discover a secret passageway deep in the town’s quarry that leads to a hidden cavern. What they uncover next will not only change their lives forever, but will uncover the first clue to a deadly Dalcome family secret. Sam finds himself drawn into a world of mystery and magic he never knew existed, which brings him closer to a destiny he never knew was possible.

Revenge of the Viper (Book 2):

The Great War of Haven ended thirteen years ago but Alisa Dalcome is about to discover that the war did not end for her. Placed on Earth as a sleeper agent for the Majesty of Haven, Alisa had one objective—protect the portal keys at all costs. In the wrong hands the magical keys could jeopardize the safety of everyone on Haven. But Alisa’s relocation was more than just Majesty business; it was also a chance for her to escape her enemies, enemies that still wanted her dead. Alisa wasn’t thinking about herself when she left Haven, she was thinking about her children Sam and Sarah. The Great War had already taken her husband Rylan; she would be damned if she would let it take her children too. But what Alisa didn’t count on was her inquisitive son Sam and his friend Travis. Sam’s world has turned upside down after discovering magic is real. After barely escaping the caves Sam begins to piece together the past day’s events when he stumbles onto his mother’s secret past. With the clues mounting, Sam must dig deeper to uncover the truth that could change his life forever.

But Sam doesn’t realize that his mother’s past has already caught up with them. Hidden within the shadows nearby is Haven’s most malevolent predator—the Viper. A hunter forged from the jenblackest of magic, it watches, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. Can Sam uncover the truth in time or will his mother’s past collide with the present placing them all in grave danger?

My Opinion

The book is a little slow paced but I guess D. C. Akers did that on purpose so the readers will get to know (and like) the characters well. It was well written and the scenes become more exciting as you turn the page. I enjoyed reading it and I'm sure my kids will enjoy it too.

Recommendation

If you're thrilled with magic and you like a lot of suspense, you'll love this book. It's available at Amazon and Goodreads.

Review: Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener in Stainless Steel with Auto Activation


I recently got the Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener in Stainless Steel with Auto Activation for review purposes. I've never used an electric wine opener before, so I was very excited when it arrived on my doorstep.





Product Description

The Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener in Stainless Steel with Auto Activation was inspired by a vision for effortless operation. The new and innovative Extravo auto-activates with a mere gentle nudge down on the cork. Once the cork has been removed from the wine bottle, the simple act of lifting up the Extravo activates a reverse spin and the cork is automatically ejected within seconds. With its elegant stainless steel material, the Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener impresses guests both in style and function. Capable at home and in restaurants, the Extravo's built-in rechargeable battery opens up to 60 wine bottles on a single charge. For those who prefer using a button to activate the electric motor, the Extravo also features a button on its top. The Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener is completely cordless and includes compact foil cutter that doubles as a stand. It also ships with a bonus wine pourer and stopper. The Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener with Auto Activation opens both natural and synthetic corks. It boasts a stainless-steel exterior, button-free operation, a fast corkscrew motor for effortless handling. Use it at home or take it with you to impress your hosts and guests before the first sip.


  • Automatically activates to remove and eject corks when placed on a wine bottle. 
  • Built-in rechargeable battery opens up to 60 wine bottles on a single charge. 
  • Light cordless design made of high-quality stainless-steel that fits in the palm of your hand. 
  • Opens a bottle of wine in just seconds with push button ease. 
  • Includes a compact foil cutter that doubles as a stand, along with a bonus pourer and stopper.


My Opinion

It looks so cool and sleek! It comes with a foil cutter which made a flawless cut and with just a push of the button, the cork came out pretty quickly as you can see in the video. I was really impressed! It's so easy to use and I'm so glad I won't have to struggle again with my old wine opener.



Pros

It's compact and it looks durable. It's cordless, so you can easily bring it along with you on picnics or keep in kitchen drawers. The wine opener's battery is rechargeable and lasts a long time on a single charge.

Cons

Like the other Ozeri products that I have used, I didn't find anything wrong with this cool electric wine opener.

Recommendation

You can kiss your old wine opener goodbye, the Ozeri Extravo Electric Wine Opener in Stainless Steel with Auto Activation is now here to make opening a wine bottle a cinch. It would also make a great gift paired with wine to friends and family.

Miss her already!

Oh, I just hate goodbyes! My sister left for the US this morning and the whole family was teary-eyed when she said goodbye. The three weeks that she was here seemed too short. We were out most of the time and didn't get much chance to talk a lot. We were busy shopping, going around places and dining out. She missed a lot of Pinoy foods. She got too busy that she had forgotten my SIL's request to bring to the States. It was a good thing I was able to buy poly check tablecloths the other day when I went to Divisoria. She was so surprised when I handed them to her when she was packing last night. I hope it won't take another 7 years before she comes home for a vacation again.

Review: Taming Romeo by Rachelle Ayala


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

I'm glad I was given a chance to review Taming Romeo, a book by Rachelle Ayala. I have to say that this book is hard to put down; I wanted to read each page as fast as I can to find out what will happen next. It's passionate, it's hot, it's sexy and funny at the same time.



Summary

Evie Sanchez is recovering from heartbreak by working at her parents’ Filipino restaurant when in walks Romeo Garcia, the boy she left behind. Only now, he’s a hot movie star surrounded by gorgeous actresses and adoring fans.

Bad boy Romeo Garcia never understood why Evie stood him up at the prom. When he rescues her from a flying coconut in the dumpster, he is determined to dig into her heart for the reason. Their mutual attraction and unresolved feelings ignite in a scintillating night of daring ***, and Romeo shows Evie what she’ll miss the rest of her life if she walks away again.

Evie lands a part as Romeo’s co-star and falls into her role, totally in love. He plays his part, too, with his romantic gestures and skillful lovemaking. But is the fantasy real or revenge? Evie and Romeo are about to discover if their buried feelings will explode in pure delight or utter disaster.

Taming Romeo is a contemporary romance featuring family secrets, delicious food, and hot, steamy loves scenes. Due to mature content, recommended for readers aged 18+

If you're a hopeless romantic like me, you'll love this book! You can get your copy at Amazon. The book is available in PDF, e-reader, epub, or App on PC or tablet formats.

In order to live a healthier lifestyle, it is often necessary to do away with chemicals and dust that can alter that lifestyle.  A hypo-allergenic mattress for instance can help you to breathe better, sleep better, and ultimately improve your health. And we cannot forget about those pesky dust mites. Dust mites are the main cause of many allergy issues and choosing the precise bedding that is both relaxing and sensible can greatly improve your sleep.

Which is why we are all proud to introduce an exclusive new line of Allergy Friendly bedding, White Mountain Textiles!  The White Mountain Textiles bedding collection is available exclusively at AllergyBuyersClub.com. Their selection of dust mite covers, comforters, pillows and mattress pads are all guaranteed hypoallergenic for a comfortable and restful nights sleep.

To learn more about the importance of Hypoallergenic bedding the President of AllergyBuyersClub.com has written a wonderful guide that is located here

Giveaway ends March 31st at 11:59 pm EST, open to EVERYONE ages 18+.
