Simple Ways to Save Money

Saving money should be practiced early in life. It's something that helps prepare our kids for their future. That's probably why my parents also started teaching me how to save money even when I was just in grade school. I remember them asking me to save at least 10 bucks from my daily allowance and what do you know, soon after I had enough to buy myself my own toys. That feeling made motivated me to save more and as I grew up I used the same mindset to help me save for the things that I want. As a kid, I felt empowered knowing that I didn't have to ask my parents for money all the time. I mean, doesn't it "up" your pride a bit?

Anyway, as I grew older, of course the place where I put my savings also change. From a cute piggy bank to a wallet I leave at home... to a savings account in a bank I trust, like Capital One. It has to be a bank that gives you the most options for your savings account. Since you pretty much want to see that savings grow and not just sit inside a safe until it's needed. What I like about Capital One though, isn't just the way they handle my money, but also the fact that they make an effort for their customers to learn how to save or handle their money through financial literacy programs. This is something that would help a lot in terms of making sure you know what you're doing with the money you work hard for.

My Thoughts

The anti aging cream has a mild scent. It has a nice, creamy consistency, but it is not sticky. It is easy to apply and the skin absorbs it quickly. I like that the cream does not leave a shiny look. I have oily skin and an added shine is definitely not needed.

A little goes a long way for this one, so you can be sure that your bottle will last a long time. I love how it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. I used it at night and woke up with a plump skin. It's only been a week and I guess, it's too early to say if it works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. What I did notice is my pores have slightly reduced.

Overall, I love what this moisturizer does to my skin. It's a very gentle product and it doesn't feel heavy on the face. For those who use makeup, this works. If you are looking for an anti aging product to keep your skin well hydrated, this is a good product to try.

Product Review: Argan Oil by Jaowying Beauty

I first discovered Argan Oil last year, when I was invited by one company to review their product. I was amazed at how it deeply moisturized and hydrated my skin and hair and since then, I've been using the oil. Today's review is another Argan Oil, this time, it's from Jaowying Beauty.

My Thoughts

The Argan oil from Jaowying Beauty has no scent. For me, this is a plus because it won't mix with scent of my shampoo. I have thick and wavy hair and right after showering, while my skin and hair are still damp, I apply Argan Oil. It helps my skin as well as my hair feel soft and silky smooth. I love how this oil tames my frizzy hair without making it look greasy.

I also noticed that my nails are stronger now. I don't grow my nails because they chip easily, but after using Argan Oil, they look healthier and they don't chip off anymore.

Overall, I love this oil. If you are looking for a product to keep your hair and skin moisturized and make your nails stronger. This is a good product to try. It's gentle on the skin because it's 100 percent Argan Oil and it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals.
