Review: Garcinia Cambogia Extract Supreme

For quite some time now, a lot of women (and even men) are trying out Garcinia Cambodia. It's a small fruit that looks like a pumpkin and is believed to aid in weight loss. Well, today's review is about this amazing fat buster.

My Opinion

For those who frequent this blog, you probably know that I've been struggling to lose weight. I eat less and exercise regularly, but my weight just won't budge. My metabolism seemed to take a halt since I turned forty. When I started taking Garcinia Cambogia Extract SUPREME a week ago, the scale needle budged slightly. I finally lost a pound! Yeah, it's not much and it's probably just water, but to me, that's already something considering that my weight remained steady for a long time.

I also feel more energetic and alert, and I noticed that I don't feel hungry very often. I may not be losing a lot, but this one works for me.


This product is free of fillers, artificial flavors and additives. It does not contain wheat, dairy, peanut, soy, shellfish and egg, so it's safe for those who are allergic to these foods. It doesn't have a strong smell and it's easy to swallow.


It may not work without diet and exercise.


If you're looking for a product to help you shed off pounds, give this a try. You have to remember though, that miracles don't happen overnight and you still have to work out and eat less to eliminate excess fat.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract SUPREME is available on Amazon. You can also purchase it on their website.

There's a giveaway coming up, so watch out for it!

Review: Rainbow Braid 7200 Band MEGA Loom Band Refill Set

Today's review is all about the 7200 Band MEGA Loom Band Refill Set from Rainbow Braid. Here at home, it's the adults who are enjoying the loom bracelets more. Oh, if I can just describe to you how excited they we were when the refill pack arrived.

My Opinion

I love that there are so many colors to choose from and that they are packed in different bags to avoid bleeding. They made it easier for the girls to sort and organize. I can tell that the bands are made of high quality materials and there is no strong rubber smell. Two bags of clips are included in the pack; not all refill kits give that much. The colorful beads are a bonus, too.

See how much fun we all had with the loom bands?

Review: Youthful Radiance Eye Cream by Foxbrim

Today's topic is about Foxbrim's Youthful Radiance Eye Cream. The skin around the eyes is usually the driest area in our face and also the most sensitive, that is why it's important that you only use products that don't contain harsh ingredients.

Product Description

Wake Up from Tired Eyes. Say Hello to Youthful Radiance!

Foxbrim's Youthful Radiance Eye Cream is the quick and easy way to totally refreshed and nourished eyes!
  • • Comprehensive Eye Care System addresses ALL your eye care concerns. Believe It! 
  • • Achieve Hollywood Radiance With Ease. Dramatic Results! • ONLY All-Natural and Organic Ingredients. Safe for ALL Skin Types.

The Simple Solution to Dull and Tired Eyes. Youthful Radiance Eye Cream Does What It Says It Will Do!
  • • Make Puffiness, Dark Circles and Wrinkles A Thing of the Past. 
  • • Prepare for the 'Before' and 'After'. Celebrate Your Beautiful Eyes! 
  • • Make your Mirror Your New Best Friend! 

My Opinion

Dark circles and puffy eyes are my main problems because of lack of sleep and I'm glad eye creams usually do the trick of eliminating them. I've been using Foxbrim's Youthful Radiance Eye Cream for more than a week now and I'm pleasantly surprised that it's working perfectly. The skin around my eyes is well moisturized and it feels very soft. Even the puffiness have subsided and dark rings are much lighter.

I use it in the morning and once again at night right after cleaning my face. It's soothing to the eyes and not irritating at all. My eyes feel instantly refreshed after application. Although it's still too early because it's only been more than a week, I'm quite positive that with the way the eye cream moisturizes and hydrates the skin, my crow's feet will become less visible.


The eye cream contains natural ingredients -- Aloe, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Green Tea Extract, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Lemongrass -- known to nourish skin. It comes in an airless pump, so it's more hygienic and easy to use.


It's a bit expensive for me because it's packed in a small bottle.


If you're looking for a product that works at eliminating the signs of aging, this eye cream is for you.

Buy it on Amazon or on their website. You may also visit and like their Facebook page for updates.

Review: Silix Black Silicon Bracelet

A Black Silicon Bracelet with 18K Rose Gold Over Stainless Steel was sent to me courtesy of for evaluation purposes. Silix by Aya is their new line of bracelets for summer 2014.

Product Description

From designer Aya Azrielant comes the hottest bracelet statement of the season. A classic combination of black silicon and 18K rose gold over stainless steel creates an edgy look for the contemporary fashionista. Bracelet measures 13/16 inches in width and stretches to fit.

My Opinion

The silicon bracelet looks really classy. It's very smooth, stretchy and carefully crafted. If you'll look at it closely, you can tell that only fine materials were used to make the Black silicon bracelet.

I've had stretchy bracelets before and what I don't like about them is they pinch the skin when worn. It's different with Silix, the black silicon is soft and it does not pinch the skin. It's comfortable to wear and the rose gold doesn't look cheap at all.


Accessories definitely change the way you look. If you're looking for a jewelry you can wear any time of the day, go for the silicon bracelets by Aya. The bracelets come in a variety of colors - black, white, red and blue. Visit the website now for more info.

Review: Australian Tea Tree Oil

I've been using tea tree oil for years because I love it and it never fails when it comes to treating stubborn acne. What usually lasts for weeks only lasts about a few days with the oil. I know it has many other uses, but I never really got to try using it with other purposes. Then recently, I was sent a bottle of Australian Tea Tree Oil. I was also asked to download the file containing recipes and the many ways to use the essential oil.

Product Description

  • One of the most versatile essential oils. Naturally fight Acne, Toenail Fungus, Lice, Yeast Infections, Skin Tags, Cold Sores, Dandruff, Ringworm, Fleas, Warts, Psoriasis, and More. 
  • Use to make your own Shampoo, Lotion, Soap, Face Cleaner, Body Wash, and Toothpaste. Stop polluting your home and make all natural Household Cleaners, Detergents, Shower Sprays, Bathroom Disinfectants, and Kitchen Sprays.

My Opinion

I was running out of toner, so I thought I'd try to make my own. Following the recipe, I mixed all the ingredients and using a cotton ball, applied it to my face and neck area. I saw dirt on the cotton ball that the facial cleanser didn't wash off. It works just like my toner does, and the good thing is, this is more natural and doesn't contain any chemicals. I have yet to try the oil with the other recipes!


Tea Tree Oil has many uses. It contains 100% pure tea tree oil and no chemical was added. It can be used to make disinfectants, deodorizers, household cleaners and detergents.


I didn't find anything I didn't like about the product.


Tea tree oil is a must have in your household. You can use it to clean your home and yourself. Although a sample was sent to me for free, I will not hesitate to buy another bottle.

Buy on Amazon!

My Opinion

I just love the scent of this mask. It's a mix of lavender and eucalyptus that calms you and your skin instantly. It has a cooling effect that is very relaxing. It's not gritty unlike other masks that I've tried. It's smooth and easy to apply on the skin. The mud mask doesn't take too long to dry and I love the feeling of tightness after washing it off. My face feels very smooth and supple. That feeling lasts for days!

Review: Resurface by Protege

Protege is becoming my favorite brand of beauty products. I've been using Emfaceize and so far I'm loving what it does to my skin. Today's topic is about Resurface, a night cream that promises to deliver radiant, flawless and more youthful skin.

Product Description

ResurFACE is an Enriched Nightly Restoration Cream Developed to Nourish, Moisturize, Repair and Protect

Healing: Loaded with Healing Ingredients Such As CoQ10, Shea Butter, Rosehip Oil, and Ceremide E to Restore, while Kelp Ferment is Fortified with Nutrients to Nourish Your Skin
You Will Be Amazed by the Overnight Results!

Anti-Oxidant: Actives like Lutein and Lycopene Protect Against UV damage, while Anti-Oxidants Alpha Lipoic Acid, Astaxanthin and Vitamin E Destroy Free Radicals
Give Your Skin a Chance to Defend Itself from the Elements

Moisturizing: Avocado Oil, Almond Oil, and Sesame Oil Provide a Hydrating Triple Treat, Then Sodium PCA Takes it to the Next Level by Preventing Moisture Loss

Wake Up to a Supple, Soft Face

My Opinion

The night cream has a nice and thick consistency. It glides easily on the skin and dries up fast. I like that it doesn't leave an oily look. I hate it when the grease stains my pillow. This one doesn't do that. Just as Protege promised, my skin felt smooth and supple instantly. The first time I used this, I woke up the next day with a silky smooth skin. I've been on this a couple of weeks now and people around me are starting to notice that my very defined crow's feet are a bit lighter. I'm sure that if I continue to use this over the next few weeks, they'd become less visible.

I use it every night before going to bed, right after leaning my face and applying Emfaceize. My skin feels soft and moisturized, especially around the eye area. Yup, it's safe to use around the eyes, just make sure that it won't get in your eyes.


If you're looking for a night cream to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, I suggest you give Resurface a try. It's easy to work on the skin and it doesn't leave an oily appearance. You'll be surprised that it's more affordable than most night creams in the market.

Resurface is available on Amazon.

Review: Best Hyaluronic Acid Serum for Skin by Foxbrim

I am not new to using Hyaluronic Acid Serum to keep my skin hydrated. I actually love what it does to my skin, so I make sure to use it every day. I am also not new to Foxbrim. I have already tried and reviewed their Vitamin C serum. Foxbrim is a brand I can trust when it comes to skin care. They sent me a bottle of Hyaluronic Acid Serum to try and review.

Product Description
  • Safe For ALL Skin Types. Unique Formulation Ensures Even Sensitive Skin Can Glow Again! 
  • See What A Few DROPS Can Do. This Serum Includes Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, MSM, Jojoba Oil AND Green Tea. This Unique Formula Guarantees (LITERALLY!) Your Results!
  • Get the BEST Anti Aging, Anti Wrinkle and Anti Dull Skin Solution.
  • Dramatic Results Can Be Achieved With Immediate Use. In Days Not Weeks!
  • Find Your Confident Glow by Making Dark Spots, Fine Lines and Wrinkles a Thing of the Past!
My Opinion

It's easy to work on the skin and it absorbs fast. It dries up pretty quickly and the results are instant. My skin felt very soft and silky smooth and I like that it looks plump and supple. I usually apply a moisturizer right after the serum, but there are times that I skip because my skin already feels soft and silky smooth. Shh, I know I shouldn't, but I just wanted to know how long the Hyaluronic Acid Serum will hold and believe me, it does keep skin very soft and hydrated even without a moisturizer.

As for my crow's feet, it's still visible, but I noticed some improvements. The slits are not as deep and with continued use, I'm sure they will become even lighter. I should have known about this years earlier, so I could have delayed the appearance of my crow's feet. Another thing that I like is my face doesn't look shiny after application. I have an oily skin and I usually stay away from products that makes my face shiny.


This serum is absolutely pure. It has NO parabens, NO additives and NO fillers. It comes in a nice brown bottle with a dropper. It's easy to apply and a little goes a long way.


I didn't find anything I didn't like about the serum. My skin easily breaks out, but this worked for me.


Hyaluronic acid works perfectly at hydrating skin. If you're looking for a product to moisturize skin and fight the signs of aging, this one is for you.

Best Hyaluronic Acid Serum for Skin by Foxbrim is available on Amazon.

Azure Naturals ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Skin Repair Serum Review and Giveaway

Sure, vitamin C delivers a lot of health benefits to our body, but did you know that it benefits the skin as well? Yup, the C vitamin is the key to collagen production. Collagen is the protein that helps cell growth and gives skin its firmness and strength. A lot of skin care products are adding Vitamin C in their ingredients because this powerful antioxidant aids in slowing the rate of free-radical damage, the major cause of skin dryness, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. I've been using Vitamin C serum for months and I love what it does to my skin. Today I am reviewing Azure Naturals ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Skin Repair Serum.

My Opinion

I use it twice daily (morning and night) after cleaning my face with a gentle cleanser and toner. My skin easily reacts to products with strong ingredients, but I didn't have problems at all with this one. It has a nice consistency and the skin easily absorbs it. As soon as it dried up, my skin felt soft, smooth and taut.

I have seen improvements on my crow's feet. They are not as deep and even my puffy eyes have diminished. I also noticed that my pores are smaller. As for the sun spots, it's my mom who told me that they are much lighter now and I told her that she should start using it, too.


The serum contains powerful, organic and natural ingredients that are gentle on the skin. There is no alcohol content, no parabens, it's gluten free and is plant based. It's cheaper than most serums you'll find in the market.


I didn't find anything I didn't like with the serum.


Why spend more on skin care products that don't work when you can fight the signs of aging with this serum? It's non irritating and it works on all skin types.

Azure Naturals ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Skin Repair Serum can be purchased on Amazon for only $19.95.

You may also want to visit Azure Naturals and like them on Facebook for more information.

I am also giving away a bottle of Azure Naturals ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Skin Repair Serum to 1 lucky winner.

This giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. 18+. One entrant per household, please! This will end July 20, 2014.

Review: Lavender Essential Oil by Elite Gold Solutions

Today, I am reviewing Lavender Essential Oil by Elite Gold Solutions. Lavender oil is more than just a calming oil. It has a lot of many uses and is beneficial for both health and beauty.

100% pure lavender oil, undiluted (supercritical steam distilled extraction from fresh flowers) Aroma: Intoxicatingly strong, distinct medicinal floral, fresh scent with balsamic woody aroma

Headache Relief Formula: Combine 3-4 drops each of lavender oil, peppermint oil and chamomile oil in a diffuser and enjoy.

Traditional Uses for our Elite Lavender Oil: 
  • Relax! Release stress, tension, anxiety *Aromatherapy*
  • Rub on temples to ease headaches 
  • Soothe irritated skin (acne, cuts, sores, scars, stretch marks, itching, athlete's foot) 
  • Skin burns (stop blistering, faster healing) 
  • Rub under nostrils to ease nausea 
  • Clear oily skin Super immune-booster (anti-microbial for bacteria, virus, and fungus) 
  • Tranquil sleep Ease common allergy, cold symptoms 
  • Insect bite relief, repellent

My Opinion

First off, the smell is amazing. It's not overpowering and it instantly calms you. I read somewhere that Lavender oil helps you sleep fast. I don't have sleeping problems, but I tried putting a couple of drops on a hanky and placed it beneath my pillow. The smell is fantastic and I had a good night's rest. I woke up the next day feeling refreshed and energetic.

I also used it on my granddaughter's mosquito bites. Her skin's reaction to insect bites is a little unusual. The swelling is a little bigger than what we normally have. When I used the oil on her insect bite, the itchiness and redness were gone after a few minutes.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this essential oil and it makes me feel great that I am using a natural product to ease common health problems. Truly, this oil deserves a space in my medicine cabinet.


Whether you have dry or oily hair and skin, lavender oil works. It's super calming and it relaxes you instantly. Why resort to OTC meds when you can do away with a more natural solution? Lavender oil benefits you from head to toe and I highly recommend it.

Lavender Essential Oil by Elite Gold Solutions is available on Amazon for only $17.97.

What's causing the zits

Stress, hormones, dirt and grime can cause you to breakout, but there are also some bad habits that we do that causes pimples. And more often than not, we are unaware that these habits are causing them. Read on so you'll know how to prevent the zits.

Washing your skin too often

Keeping your skin clean is very important, but washing your face a few times a day will only make acne worse. Once in the morning when you wake and once again at night before bed should be enough.

Vigorously scrubbing your skin

Avoid using a washcloth, loofah, or harsh exfoliant when washing your face, this will cause irritation and may just worsen your acne-prone skin. To prevent acne, simply wash face with your hands (make sure they are clean). Using a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water, use the pads of your fingers to wash and massage face in a circular motion.

Not cleaning sweaty skin

Don't ever let the sweat dry up on your face after you've had a workout or you've been outside in the hot sun. Wipe it dry gently with a soft towel or wash your skin promptly after sweating.

Picking at your skin and popping your pimples

Popping or picking your pimple may be tempting, but this will only irritate it more and even cause scarring.

Skipping the shampoo

Make sure you wash your hair daily, especially those who have oily hair. The oil from your hair can seep down onto your face and cause pimples.

Getting hair products on your face

When applying hair product -- spray, gel, mousse -- try to keep it off your face to prevent them from clogging up your pores. Cover your face when applying these products to keep them on your hair and off your skin.

Avoiding these bad skin care habits and replacing them with good ones will help bring acne under control.

Play for Free or for Real

If you enjoy the thrill of playing online games like some of my friends do, you might be interested in trying out the no deposit bonus sites they found. If you haven't tried it yet and you have some reservations, let me tell you that playing in these game sites is also safe. I've seen my friends play and not one had a bad experience playing online. In fact, they enjoy the casino bonus that they get because they do not even have to shell out their money to be able to play.

Roulette is one of their favorite games and one time while we were having a get-together at my friend's house, I was lured to play for free once. I never thought it could be that fun and of course, there is nothing like playing for free. That was actually the first time that I played the game and I don't know if there is a trick to win money but I did win some. Pure luck, I guess. Although I am not really into gambling, I have to admit that it was a great experience and I had a lot of fun. It's a good thing that one of them discovered this no deposit bonus blog. It's where they learned how to play for free.

If you ever decide to play online, the blog offers a lot of tips. You can also find the largest variety of online gaming websites where they give the biggest bonuses and the highest payouts.

Please note though, that these games are not for everyone. If you are new at this, there are websites that offer detailed information so you will have a better understanding on how each game is played. I suggest you know more about the game -- the rules, the odds, the techniques and if you need some skills to play it -- so you know what you are getting yourself into. As for my friends and I, we were just having fun.

Review: 100% Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract by XIUM

I eat less and I work out every morning for 20 minutes and then every night, I walk with my parents for 40 minutes to an hour. I should be fit and trim, right? Wrong! Yes, I feel healthier because of the exercise, but I'm still overweight. This used to frustrate me because no matter how hard I try, the weight just won't budge. Later on, I learned to accept it. So long as it will keep me healthy, I will continue to do what I'm doing. Then, I was given the opportunity to try 100% Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract. I have doubts about diet pills, but since it only contains all natural ingredients and has Zero Artificial Ingredients, why not?

Product Description

XIUM Green Coffee Bean Extract is Pure and 100% free of any artificial ingredients. Why not trust the brand doctors recommend the most? Green Coffee Bean Extract 800 with GCA provides safe and effective weight loss for all body types. Not a stimulant. Our product won't make you jittery or raise your heart rate like other products that may contain roasted coffee or ephedra.

My Opinion

The first day I took the Green Coffee Bean Extract I felt energized. I did my usual workout and took the daily evening walk and I just felt that I could do more. I also noticed that I ate less than usual. After a week of taking it, I lost 1 1/2 pounds. It may not be much, but it's already big time for me, considering that I have not lost any for years.


The ingredients are all natural and there are no side effects.


Some may say that it is not effective because I only lost a pound and a half. Shedding off pounds may not be as much and as fast as the others did, but this is already a big improvement for me.


If you're looking for a booster to help you lose weight, I recommend this. I never thought that I would lose any more weight after years of exercising and eating less, but this one worked.

100% Pure Green Coffee Bean Extract by XIUM is available on Amazon.

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