CYMERA_20140722_065621

Hello my fabulous lovlies!!

I am back today with a review + Hope you guys definitely get something out of this + maybe try it for yourself! Also, I want to warn you that this may be a lengthy read! LOL!!

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**

  • Let your eyes shine again with their natural beauty
  • Infuses skin with Dead Sea minerals as well as Antioxidants and Vitamins
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles around your eyes and smooth out fine lines.
  • The delicate skin around your eyes requires a special, gentler touch. The Adovia eye gel is unique in that it’s a light softer gel which is highly concentrated with nutrients your skin needs.
  • Quickly delivers rich moisture to the area around your eyes reducing the appearance of fine lines. Helps skin around eyes maintain natural moisture to prevent aging damage
  • Makes skin around the eyes have a more beautiful, youthful glow.

  • Vitamins A and C – natural Antioxidants – work to protect the skin from daily damage.

Directions: apply daily around the eyes morning and evening.

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…

Sponsored Review: Valentia Skin Care – Even Glow Serum Review

Hey all!

I am back today with a review of a new product that I’ve been trying out. So I am majorly into skincare and anytime I get a chance to try something new and cool, I am all for it. The product I received is the Even Glow Serum from Valentia Skin Care.

CYMERA_20140608_205853

 

Right off I want to say that not everything is for everyone so if it doesn’t/does work for me of course it may/may not work for you…on that note, this product did not work for me. 😦

 

I have really sensitive combonation/oily skin so sometimes just sunlight breaks my skin out. This product was unfortunately one of those factors that caused my skin to react negitively however, this could work great for someone with less sensitive skin!

This product seems to be something that would provide amazing benefits and has some ingredients in it that I know has work wonders for a lot of people but in combination, make my skin break out in a rash. I sampled a few areas and had the same reaction in each area.

OVERALL THOUGHTS

Overall, I again feel this products has potential. The scent is nice and smells like orange citrus. The color is also an orange color and looks like a natural shade not bright and artificial. The serum absorbs into the skin quickly and doesn’t feel sticky at all. very nice texture. If you don’t have sensitive skin, I think this will work for you. Give it a try and see how your skin benefits from it! Hope you found this helpful!!
