Review: Adeline Antioxidant Serum

Ever since I discovered about Vitamin C serums, I've been using it to brighten my dark spots and minimize pores. Today's review is about the Antioxidant Serum with Vitamin C by Adeline. I am not new to this brand as well. I have tried their moisturizer and eye serum and I love how they keep my skin hydrated.

Product Description

Fragrance, Cruelty and Paraben Free - When you apply our facial serum your skin will not be bothered by any un-necessary fragrances or other harsh chemicals. We only use natural ingredients and everyone tells us they like the smell, if they can smell anything at all.

My Thoughts

I love how this serum is bottled. It looks expensive, albeit the price is very competitive compared to other serums out there. Just like any other serums, it is clear. It has a nice consistency and it's not runny. It comes with a pump instead of glass droppers. I like it that way because you avoid spills. One pump is enough to cover your face.

The serum has no scent and it is not sticky. It is easy to work on the skin and is absorbed quickly. My skin felt instantly soft and smooth. I've been using it for two weeks and I like that my skin is plump. My sun spots have brightened a bit and the fine lines under my eyes are less visible. I will use the serum until I consume the whole bottle and I'm sure it will continue to work miracles on my skin.

Overall, I love the serum. It is gentle on the skin and I love the results I am getting. If you are looking for a product to battle the signs of aging, this serum is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Antioxidant Serum by Adeline through Amazon. It is fairly priced at $18.95.

Disclosure: I received a sample of this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own and was in no way influenced by anyone or the brand.

Saving Money Tips for Back to School Clothes

While some kids are just starting their school vacation, it's the time of the year again for some parents to prepare for the opening of classes next month. You've already included notebooks, paper, pencils, ball pens, crayons and rulers in your list.

Oh, I hear you, buying school supplies seem like a never ending process, I always feel this way whenever school opening comes near. And this is especially true when you have three or more kids. But school supply shopping doesn't end there and if you think school materials cost a fortune, think again because back to school clothes definitely cost even more.

To help you save money when buying back to school clothes, here are some tips.

Go through your kids' clothes and make an inventory. Purge the clothes that are too small for them and the ones that they wear anymore because of wear and tear. For the remaining clothes, decide which ones you would like to keep and which ones you should pass on to the next child. This will give you an idea of what your kids have and what you should buy.

It will also help to upgrade your kids' clothes. Last year's clothes may be a little outdated, but adding iron on stickers, ribbons and other accessories can transform them into hip and cool fashion statements. Pants that still fit them, but are too short can be cut and transformed into shorts or Capri pants. You may also add beads or rhinestones for a cool, new look.

After sorting out your kids' clothes, check your budget. Check how much money are you willing to spend for their back to school clothes. Set aside a budget not just for clothes, but for shoes and accessories as well. Once you have determined how much money you will spend, make sure you stick to your budget. Check out Zalora, an online shop that offers a wide range of clothing for children. You can check out their collection here. I like that their clothes are fashionable and very affordable.

Review: Bentonite Indian Healing Clay

I was very excited when I was invited to review another product from Pure Body naturals. I've used some of their products and I like how they work on my skin. I like to exfoliate once in a while, but you know how expensive it could get when you visit the spa. So, the next best thing is a healing clay.

Product Description

* BENTONITE CLAY IS ONE OF THE BEST HEALING CLAYS: Excellent for Face Skin Care, Deep Skin Pore Cleansing, Detoxifying And Revitalization.
* SODIUM BENTONITE CLAY 16 Oz: PURE Indian Healing Clay from WYOMING, USA - Premium Quality - No Additives
* Results Come Very Fast. Rids the body of toxins and acids. Discover the Secret of Ultra Youth Indian Healing Clay. This clay is highly effective at detoxifying the skin and promoting the overall natural beauty and health.
* Works on Oily and sensitive skin as well. Clay makes a fabulous facial mask, for shrinking pores, tightening and toning skin, removing impurities, and just making your skin look and feel great.

My Thoughts

I've tried a lot of mud masks, but this one is in powder form. I guess that is a good thing because you will only mix what you need and powders have a longer shelf life. I followed the instructions carefully and mixed 1 tsp of the powder with water. The paste was too thick, so I added more water. I was surprised that I had more than what I needed. The mixture I made was probably enough for 4 people. Next time, I should use just a quarter of a teaspoon.

So, together with my SIL, we applied the mask and waited for it to dry.

Twenty minutes later, our skin felt tight and we just loved the cooling effect. I washed my face as usual and I loved how my skin feels soft and smooth. I've used it a couple of times a week for two weeks and I noticed that my sun spots and acne marks have lightened. It also says in the description that it's great for acne and pimples as well. I will let my son use this and see if it will help clear his skin.

Overall, I like the healing clay and what it does to my skin. If you are looking for a good product to clean and revitalize your skin, this is a good buy.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Bentonite Indian Healing Clay through Amazon. A jar is retailed at $8.49.
