Sponsored Review – MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil

Hello beauties!!

I have had a heck of a week which I will update you guys on once I’ve had a moment to rest + get myself sorted. Until then, I have a new review for you!!! Yay!!

CYMERA_20141114_225932

I was lucky enough to try out the MONAT Rejuveniqe Oil (Click here to read more about the product) + I must say, I am impressed! This product has improved my hair so so much. The product is said to help minimize thinning hair, add in needed nutrients + can promote hair growth. The oil smells nice + light but luxurious! The cap to this is a dropper which is really nice because you can control the amount of product you use…a little goes a long way (I show this in a vid on my instagram).  The packaging looks amazingly sleek + chic + just really draws your eye to it! Definitely a beautiful high end goodie you must try out!!!!

HOW I USE IT:

CYMERA_20141114_230111

After I wash my hair, I pat dry really well with a town then apply some leave in conditioner, After .I brush/comb my conditioner through, I add in the oil to my ends and then I massage it into my scalp. After those steps, I just let my hair air dry + once it does…OMG, my hair is so so soft + shiny. BEAUTIFUL!!

MY OVERALL THOUGHTS:

5-stars Rilakkuma

I totally give this product a 5 out of 5 because not only did I see instant result after my first use (and still to this day), but I have seen growth as well + that’s major for me since I’ve been trying to grow my hair out + for a bit it grew then just stalled but this definitely gave it that extra boost to start growing again. Oh + I forgot, you can use this on your body as well!! The only con I think of at the moment is the price. On the website this product retails for $99!! That’s a lot of money but if you want to splurge….DO IT!! Hahahaha. All in all, I am happy with this product + once I’m out I will probably purchase this again + try more of the MONAT products as well.

I hope this was informative for you + I will be back soon with more post so stay tuned!!

Until Next Time…

Sponsored Review – Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery

piZap_1411710411377

 

Hello guys!!!!

I hope you are all well!! I know I have been gone for way too long + I truly apologize! As you know I tend to be very busy with life + sometimes those things absolutely come first!! I have also been making YouTube videos so definitely check those out! I plan to do a life update video soon so I can let you all know how I’ve been getting on!

Today I am going to do a quick review for you on the Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery cream I received from iFabbo (check out this product here http://bit.ly/DSRSPF50). I could not use this product all over my face for too long because it ended up being too heavy for me + made my skin even more oily (I have oily/combo skin).

Price: $65 for 1.7 oz

Dermalogica is a well know skin care line + seems to be talked about a lot but for me this wasn’t the best option. I want to try more of their products but something that’s oil free + works with sensitive skin! The product is actually nice in the since of all the benefits it has, especially SPF50! I now only use it in my under eye are to see if it will help with fine lines…I will let you know after further research! 😉

Below I have entered zoomed in photos of the packaging details which list ingredients, info, + just additional information I felt you all might find helpful!

RATING AND OVERALL THOUGHTS

3-5stars Rilakkuma

Overall I rate this product a 3 out of 5. It have great benefits but it was just not right for my particular skin type. I will continue to use it under my eyes to see if maybe it will work as an eye cream for me during the day. Trail + error are always going to be the case when it comes to skin care + not everything is for everyone however, I hope you guys give this a try + see how it works for you!!

I will back real soon so keep an eye out for some new stuffs!!! ^_^ ♥ ♥

PRODUCT INFORMATION

So the product I am reviewing today is this ADOVIA Mineral Eye Gel which was sent to me for review purposes. This eye gel can be found on Amazon.com + retails for $29. I have been trying it for a little while but I still feel like I haven’t used it quite enough to make a decision buuuut, lets move on to the good stuff!

COMPANY CLAIMS ON PRODUCT + INGREDIENTS 

**Disclaimer: The below information was found on cleopatraschoice.com**

Expanded Description

Because skin around the eye area is so delicate, it many times will more quickly show signs of aging. With Adovia Dead Sea Mineral Eye Gel however, skin is left moisturized with a visible reduction of wrinkles. Fine lines are smoothed, as skin is infused with rich natural ingredients like Dead Sea minerals, plus antioxidants and vitamins.

Dead Sea eye gel is a more lightweight option that is still highly concentrated, effectively delivering nutrients essential to your skin. Users are left with a more youthful appearance, protecting the delicate eye area from dehydration and other signs of aging. Dead Sea eye gel products are always a perfect fit with any beauty routine and since this mineral eye gel is combined with the natural antioxidants of Vitamins A and C, it will quickly become a morning and evening staple.

Adovia Eye Gel nourishes and moisturizes the skin around your eyes reducing the appearance of fine lines while preventing further damage or aging to the skin tissue. The active minerals help to soothe and smooth skin, leaving the eye area glowing day and night.

MY THOUGHTS, EXPERIENCE + RATING
3-5stars Rilakkuma

I have used this eye gel for a month + overall I feel that it’s just Okay. I am not overly impressed with it but I am also not extremely disappointed either. I gave it 3 out of 5 Rilakkuma’s (Yes, this is a thing now lol). The texture is very nice + light. There is no fragrance which is nice especially since my facial skin is crazy sensitive. The gel gives a nice cooling effect which is pleasing + I feel helps reduce puffiness a bit. The texture is really nice +  kind of thick but melts away into the skin leaving it very moisturized + smooth. The company claims that this gel reduces the appearance of fine lines but in that department I see not a single change. I used this product twice a day as well but still, I didn’t notice a change at all. Not everything is for everyone so I think I may need something with slightly stronger ingredients for my under eyes. With that said, I would actually recommend it to other because he really does feel nice on the skin + is very light once absorbed. I just don’t feel I would purchase this myself unless it works better after further use.

 

So all,  I hope you found this review helpful + maybe this will work out for you! Let me know if you try it because I would be interested to know what your results are like!

 

Until Next Time…

NYX Honey Dew Me Up – First Impressions + Final Thoughts!

IMG_20140607_233916

Hello beauties!!

I know I’ve been gone for a little bit but I’ve been exhausted!! It takes me an hour + a half to get to work each morning and about a full 2 hours to get home!! My days are long + exhausting + sometimes I just need to rest so I hope you all understand!

So, this post (+ a few others coming up) are way over due but better later than never right?? So I purchased the NYX  Honey Dew Me Up Primer off of the NYX website. I tend to get all giddy and sparkly eyed when I see new items so I had to try it out! The primer cost $17 which I thought was a bit much but of course, I decided to buy it any way hahaha. Now, on to what I thought + the post I left on the NYX site.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

When I received my package, I was super excited and couldn’t wait to try this product. Right away I was put off by the spatula. That didn’t seem very sanitary to me. To explain my impression further, let me show you what I posted on the NYX website…

★★★★★2 out of 5 stars.

Not as geat as I was expecting…

I will post on my blog with more detail but, this primer just is not for me! I thought it would be amazing because soooo many NYX products are. This formula doesn’t seem to be any different when it comes to basic priming. The gold flakes are a bit random and not small enough to illuminate the skin. The product feels wet and sticky to me and makes my combo/oily skin a wee bit unhappy. Also, the packaging would be so much better in a pump form…much more sanitary. All in all this product has the potential to be great but I just don’t think it’s there yet.

 
 No
I do not recommend this product.
CURRENT THOUGHTS
I decided to try this product again after watching other reviews + talking to a few people + we agree that this product is much better as a serum and not a primer! When I use the product this way, I can actually see benefits. I first cleanse my face, exfoliate, then tone. After I tone my skin, the Honey Dew Me Up seeps into the skin must better + does not leave that sticky + wet feeling. After about a week my skin looked much healthier + plump. I feel like the gold in the product is still pointless but the ingredients are rather nice if used the right way. I really feel this product should be repackaged + marketed as a serum because it’s got great potential!!
Overall I am starting to like this product since using it the new way. Hopefully NYX will see that this is a much better product when used a serum! I hope you guys found this post helpful and I will chat with you again soon!
Until Next Time…
