71mrnMZyEcL._SX522_ Oak Leaf Blackhead Remover Extractor Tool Kit

I received this blackhead remover kit that comes in a nice zippered case for easy storage as part of a review for the company, Oak Leaf. The kit comes with 5 surgical grade blackhead extractors, which is not only safe on your skin but also easy to use.

619epnhTJPL._SL1001_I am somewhat familiar with skincare tools to remove blemishes but it would be helpful to have a description for each tool as a reference to make sure to use them correctly. I tested 2 of the tools on and around my nose, that removed a few smaller blemishes. I also used another tool on my chin that cleaned/removed dead skin.

61N0jLQOXAL._SX522_Overall, the tools were well-made and the storage case was an added bonus for this kit. The item arrived fast and well packaged. To purchase your kit, visit Oak Leaf Blackhead Remover Extractor Tool Kit.

I recieved this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Hello gorgeous! I just received the best product review ever! I received my first VoxBox from Influenster this past week and boy am I excited. This review included new products from Mary Kay! I am a newbie to Influenster so this was my very first review. This box is full of great products to brighten my spring look and get ready for the summer! It included a wide assortment of this season’s on-trend shades including warm and sun-kissed tones, soft peachy pinks and bold corals.

WOW! So many goodies. The #MKGLAM VoxBox included:

  • Lash Love Mascara
  • Cream Eye Color Apricot Twist
  • Mineral Cheek Color Shy Blush
  • Translucent Loose Powder
  • Gel Eyeline with expandable Brush Applicator
  • Bronzing Powder
  • NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango
  • Cream Eye Color/Concealer Brush
  • Powder Brush

 

First I am amazed by how many products I get to try – a total of 9 items. This can’t be real! I tried all of the products together to create a look that reminds me of springtime. We had a really harsh and cold winter here in NJ so these bright colors are a warm welcome to my makeup collection. All of the products were easy to use.

I really can’t choose just one product to call my favorite since I liked all of them. What girl doesn’t like makeup? But if I had to choose, I would say that I liked the cream eye color in apricot twist since it was a soft, creamy long-wearing (up to 10 hours) eye shadow. It had a subtle sparkle to it that caught the sunlight and it created a natural looking glow. This is a great shadow for anytime. Work, school, time with friends and the list goes on.

My other favorite that I could use to dress up an outfit would be the NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Mango Tango. This lip gloss is a rich, intense, long-wearing shade that is a little too bright for my everyday outfits but would look super cute for a nice summer dress or night out with the hubby. I don’t wear much makeup so it was a nice change to try these great products and shades I normally wouldn’t purchase.

Who wouldn’t want an eye care treatment that smoothes and replenishes delicate skin around eyes plus reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? I found exactly that with Sundari Chamomile Eye Oil where I have been testing their product for the past few days.

aff4868c5fb20172517fb9ecdc7c2dd97ce19d42

ABOUT CHAMOMILE EYE OIL: Chamomile Eye Oil smoothes and replenishes delicate skin around eyes. Healing Chamomile Oil and Emollient Avocado Oil nourish and soften skin. Natural anti-oxidants, Vitamins A and E, nurture the skin and help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

BENEFITS: 

  • Improves elasticity around eyes to minimize lines and wrinkles
  • Oils help to feed and replenish the skin naturally
  • To brighten and rejuvenate skin around eyes
  • Functions like a serum, providing a wealth of nutrients

The Chamomile eye oil is very easy to use where you apply a drop of oil to the index finger and distribute over middle and ring finger. Tap over outer eye area. Avoid eyelids. Oil will get absorbed rapidly into skin. A little goes a long way with this product and I learned this after the first morning to only use a small droplet. This eye oil is perfect year round but even more important to use during the cold, harsh winter months we have here in NJ. It moisturizes very nicely and absorbs quickly enough to wear it under makeup.

In a 4 week clinical study, 64% users felt that their eyes looked smoother, had better texture and fewer lines and wrinkles. Users experienced 44% improvement in spacing of fine lines and 26% improvement in spacing of crows feet. In addition, 52% of users rated this product better than their current eye treatment product.

Herbal Fact: Chamomile
A yellow daisy-like flower in use for thousands of years, in products such as teas, cosmetics and fragrance, the scent is sweet with a fruity undertone that has rejuvenating effects on both the mind and the nervous system.

Ingredients: Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Perseagratissima Avocado Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Gel, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Oil, Cymbopogon Martini Oil, Retinol, Ascorbic Acid, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Tocopherol.

Thank you for Sundari for letting me test and review their Chamomile Eye Oil. It is the perfect addition to my skin-care regimen and the best part is the packaging. You’ll just have to purchase your own Chamomile Eye Oil to see what I’m talking about. You can place an order for Sundari at their online store at SkinStore.com

Until next time, have a SWEET day! Bonnie

MY REVIEW: I had the opportunity this past week to sample Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum and noticed a big difference with how my skin looked and felt. Each morning and night, I applied a small amount of the serum to my clean face and neck. I instantly felt my skin feel smoother and you could see the natural glow start to come back since it’s been a harsh, cold winter here in NJ. The serum is lightweight and non-greasy so it’s great to apply in the morning before moisturizer and make-up. This is an amazing addition to my skin-care products and happy to be able to use their product.

Until next time, have a SWEET day!

I am loving Ageless Derma! This is my third product I was able to test and review for Ageless Derma. This time I was lucky to receive Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer where is this part of their extensive line of anti-aging mineral makeup that prevents wrinkles with Vitamin A, E, and green tea.

Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 12.45.28 PM

ABOUT AGELESS DERMA CAMOUFLEUR CONCEALER: It is ideal for covering up imperfections of the skin such as scars or brown spots or port wine stains that distract from the skin’s beauty. This versatile mineral make up concealer provides a natural look that is long lasting and will also cover those dark circles beneath the eyes, so it is an anti-aging makeup that will conceal those visible signs of aging.

I chose the Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer in the Ivory skin tone and it matched perfectly. This past week I had a few breakouts on my face. I tried the concealer under my eyes for my dark circles as well as for a few blemishes I had on my chin. The concealer is a little heavier than what I am used to for an everyday under eye concealer but it worked perfectly for my blemish on my chin. After using the concealer, a little goes a long way so you do not need much to cover any scars, redness or other skin imperfections. Ageless Derma does recommend using the camouflage brush to provide longer lasting coverage so you will utilize less concealer. I took before and after photos of my chin with my blemish. As you can see, it worked great by covering the redness well all with a natural look. I notice a lot of concealers can look “caked on” but this was not the case with Ageless Derma.

The Ageless Derma Camoufleur Concealer also contains apple extract, cetyl esters and horseradish.   The apple extract helps to bright those dark spots on the face as it also fights acne and adds antioxidant protection to the skin for anti aging skin cream benefits.

This past week I had the opportunity to test and review Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener, which is formulated with scientifically proven ingredients and developed by a team of researchers, physicians, scientists, and estheticians sharing over 30 years experience, Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener offers natural, safe ingredients with clinically proven results.

Combining powerful ingredients producing dynamic results, Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener will lighten and even out your skin tone within weeks, leaving you with a healthy, youthful look.33933c4c99b44394314b1ab3e21fff88cba3a8ec

During the winter months, I feel that my skin starts to become pasty and very dry because of the cold air outside and the drying heat inside our home. It doesn’t have that summer-time glow and I’m missing this so much lately since we still have a few more months of winter until I feel I’ll get that nice glow back…but thanks to Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener, I have started to see a difference with how my skin looks and feels.Screen Shot 2014-02-23 at 11.21.30 AM

I received a full size sample to test and I have been applying a small amount to my freshly cleaned face in the morning as well as at night time for the past week. Whether you are concerned by freckles, age spots, brown spots, liver spot or changes in skin pigmentation caused by pregnancy or oral contraceptives, Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener has been specially formulated with an all-new combination of natural and bio engineered ingredients to lighten the skin without any harmful side effects.

MY RESULTS: After applying the skin brightener for the past week, I have noticed that my face feels smoother as well as having a nice, fresh glow to my skin. I need to continue to use the skin brightener for a few more weeks as recommended from Ageless Derma. I enjoyed how to dispense the cream from the container. You gently press down on the white disc to pump the cream out. You dispense as much or as little as you need so no excess is left over. The only thing I did not like as much as their other products is the fragrance of the skin brightener. It has a different smell than the others but it was something I did get used after a few applications. I would recommend this product to my friends and family since I know many of them are the same age and also starting to worry about not having the youthful glow as we used to in our teens and 20s.

You can find Ageless Derma Anti-Aging Intensive Skin Brightener as well as some of their other products at the following website and you can even sign up for their newsletters. Also, you can enjoy FREE shipping on all domestic orders. SWEET!

This past week I had the opportunity to test and review Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream, which is a revolutionary new product to protect and revitalize your skin from the signs of aging. During the harsh, cold winter months, my skin becomes very dry and I was excited to try a new moisturizing face cream. I am in my early 30’s and slowing starting to see fine lines around my eyes and mouth that I’m not very happy about.

01

I received a full size sample to test and I have been applying a small amount to my freshly cleaned face in the morning as well as at night time for the past week. Ageless Derma recommends applying the anti-wrinkle cream mostly on crow feet, between the brows and forehead. By combining seven scientifically proven anti-aging ingredients into one product, Ageless Derma Stem Cell and Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Cream eliminates the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the firmness and elasticity of skin, removes crow’s feet and re-energizes skin for smoother, firmer and younger look.

Each of Ageless Derma Anti-Wrinkle Cream’s special ingredients has undergone rigorous scientific testing that demonstrates its ability to make dramatic improvements on aging skin.

MY RESULTS: After applying the anti-wrinkle cream for the past week, I have noticed that my face feels smoother as well as having a nice, fresh glow to my skin. I need to continue to use the cream for a few more weeks as recommended from Ageless Derma to see better results of eliminating my fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving the firmness and elasticity of my skin. What I liked the most about the anti-wrinkle cream was that it had a nice subtle fragrance to it and it did not feel heavy or greasy on my skin. In addition, I enjoyed how to dispense the cream from the container. You gently press down on the white disc to pump the cream out. You dispense as much or as little as you need so no excess is left over. I would recommend this product to my friends and family since I know many of them are the same age and also starting to worry about fine lines and wrinkles.
