Vitamin C Facial Toner by InstaNatural



Two things you should know...I am a huge fan of facial mists and I am also a huge fan of InstaNatural!  I have tried a lot of InstaNatural products and I have yet to try one I didn't love.  The Vitamin C Facial Toner is another one of their products I get to add to my love list!  It feels super refreshing, smells good and my skin just drinks it up.
The Vitamin C Facial Toner contains 100% natural and organic ingredients. It helps clean & shrink pores with Witch Hazel and Tea Tree Oil and really helps with oily skin (which I have) because it restores your natural pH levels so your skin is balanced.  I have even been using it as a setting spray for my makeup as well and it works great!  It's pretty amazing stuff!


Go to InstaNatural.com to check out their vast selection of great skin care products and you can also purchase their Vitamin C Facial Toner at Amazon.com.

Thursday Thoughts on Friday ~ Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween

I hope everyone has some really fun things planned for Halloween this year since it's on a Friday!  We are keeping it low key since we have older kids and only one left at home.  So we are just going to cuddle up, watch scary movies & grab some yummy snacks.
However you end up celebrating I hope you have a great time with family & friends!  

P.S.
For some reason Halloween brings out my creative side!  I had so much fun creating this pic using PicMonkey.  PicMonkey is a really fun photo editing site and it's FREE!  That being said, because I edit a lot of photos for my blog I use the Royal version of PicMonkey but that's only $33.00 a year and totally worth it.
What photo editing site do you use, let me know in the comment section below...

Hydracentials Stainless Steel Water Bottle-Review



I don't know about you but I am a HUGE water drinker.  I always keep water with me at all times, at my desk, when I work out, beside my bed and I even keep water in my car.  Hydracentials sent me this really cool Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Water Bottle to review for them a few weeks ago and I have been using it ever since!

The Hydracentials Stainless Steel Water Bottle is perfect the perfect size at 16 oz. and made from durable and sturdy, quality food grade stainless steel and of course it's also BPA Free!
The think I love most about this Hydracentials Water Bottle is that it keeps my water super cold.  I love really cold water, in fact, I usually put ice cubes in it and ice cubes fit perfectly in this water bottle.  Best of all, it works so well that I can put ice cubes in it overnight and they will still be there the next morning, melted but still there.  Now that is a well insulated bottle!

Dr Song Rosehip Oil-Review



If you follow my blog then you already know I have talked about Rosehip Oil before and then you also know that it doesn't smell like roses!  I've decided it smells like musty hay but don't let the smell fool you!  Dr Song sent me their 100% Pure USDA Certified Organic Virgin Rosehip Seed Oil to review for my blog and I love the results of it!  As you know, I am already a fan of this, what I like to call, miracle oil.

Rosehip Oil is extracted from rose bush seeds, using a special process to preserve its natural cosmetic qualities, which includes containing high amounts of essential fatty acids.  Dr Song Rosehip Oil is an all natural luxurious and lightweight moisturizer.  It quickly absorbs and deeply penetrates to heal, nourish and hydrate skin.  Rosehip Oil is also great for wrinkles, scars, stretch marks, rashes, burns, acne scars, dry skin, dermatitis, age spots, brittle nails, psoriasis, eczema, hyper-pigmentation, radiation and sun damage, dry & damaged hair and is an anti-inflammatory.  Told you it was miracle oil!

My favorite thing to do with Rosehip Oil is put it all over my body as soon as I get out of the shower.  When I wake up in the morning my skin looks and feels really hydrated and supple.  Plus, all my little nicks & cuts that I get from daily life look healed and less noticeable.

You can purchase Dr Song Rosehip Oil on Amazon.com and also check out DrSongMedical.com for more of their amazing products!

Naturalico Cellulite & Body Firming Cream-Review



Most of us are all too familiar with Cellulite.  I am pretty sure most women have in, some just more than others.  I don't have a ton of Cellulite and it's mostly and the back of the thighs & butt area.  Regardless, it's ugly.  I used to pray that Cellulite would one day be an attractive feature, lol!  Unfortunately, I don't think that day is going to come any time soon.
That being said there are a lot of creams on the market right now that will at help make your Cellulite less noticeable.  I was sent this Cellulite & Body Firming Cream by Naturalico and it does give some pretty great results.  I will say this, I think you need to use this and any other cream like it everyday to really see the results.  In other words, you need to be pretty dedicated.  Also, I have noticed some of the results are only temporary.  However, it really does help!  It improves the overall appearance of skin, it looks more toned and more firm.  I love that this cream has Retinol in it which enhances collagen production, encourages skin renewal and helps tighten and firm the skin.   It also contains L-Carnitine which helps the body metabolize fat, Green Tea which helps stimulate the release of stored fat and a few other key ingredients that all help with the overall appearance of your skin.

In addition to using this or any Anti-Cellulite Cream I think it's really important to drink lots of water, make healthy food choices and of course, exercise!  I think all of things combined will give you the results you are looking for.
Go to BellaNaturals.us for more information on this product or to Amazon.com.

Rose Hip Oil by Yumi Beautiful-Review



Rose Hip Oil is one of my favorite oils.  It does so many wonderful things for my skin.  Yumi Beautiful sent me their 100% Pure, Natural Rose Hip Oil to review for them and I have been enjoying it ever since.  
If you are not familiar with Rose Hip Oil one thing I should tell you is that is DOES NOT smell like Roses, lol!  Actually, quite the opposite.  Rose Hip Oil doesn't have the greatest smell, however, it is a little miracle oil so I can overlook the "interesting" smell.  I have heard people say it smells like everything from Salami to Fish.  I tend to think it smells more like musty hay and it doesn't bother me at all.  It should also be refrigerated after opening because it can spoil.  At first I found this a bit annoying but the coolness of the oil actually feels amazing when I use it in my a.m. skin care routine so I got over that pretty fast!
Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil is light-weight and absorbs really easily into my skin.  Since Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil is hydrating I don't usually need to follow this with a moisturizer.  The Rose Hip Oil has helped reduce the appearance of some of my old acne scars and even some of my fine lines.  It has even helped even out my complexion!
As you can see the Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil is 100% Pure and Cold-Pressed from the Southern Andes Mountains of Chile.  With a product that works this great by itself there is no need to add anything else to it!
What are you waiting for?  Add Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil to your skin care routine today!  You can purchase Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil on Amazon.com and make sure you check out YumiBeautiful.com for more information.  Plus, your purchase is 100% Risk FREE.  Backed by the YĆ¼mi Love It, Money Back Guarantee.  If you don't love it, simply send the product back to us at any time for any reason, and you will receive a full refund!

Yalmeh Vitamin C Serum-Review



I have become a believer that everyone over the age of 20 should really have a good Vitamin C Serum as part of their skin care routine.  Yalmeh sent me their Vitamin C Serum to test out and review for them and I have had some pretty good results over the last few weeks.  Vitamin C Serum always leaves my skin feeling & looking smoother and softer and it really helps lighten my hyperpigmentation.  I always apply my Vitamin C Serum after I have washed my face and it's still a little damp.  The extra dampness helps all serums and moisturizers to absorb a little easier.  I always follow my serum with a SPF moisturizer.
Some other benefits of Yalmeh Vitamin C Serum is that it can help protect skin cells UV-related damage, improve the appearance of sun-damaged skin, reduce inflammation and promote collagen production.

Enpol Omega 3 Fish Oil Review + Giveaway



I'm sure most of you have heard how important Omega 3 Fish Oil is to your overall health. It's probably best known to help improve blood pressure issues.  However, it also helps reduce triglycerides, slow the development of plaque in the arteries, reduce the chance of abnormal heart rhythm, reduce the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke and also lessen the chance of sudden cardiac death in people with heart disease.
Most of us do not get enough Omega 3 Fish Oil in our diets so it's really important to take a quality supplement.
I was sent this one by Enopl and have been taking it everyday for the last few weeks.  I inherited my high triglycerides from my parents so I am anxious to get tested again to see if the results are better than there were the last time.  Regardless, I feel like I'm doing myself a favor by taking it and I will continue to take the Omega 3 Fish Oil as part of my everyday supplement routine.

Lucky for you, you can also reap all the benefits of Omega 3 Fish Oil because Enpol has graciously offered to giveaway 1 Bottle of their Omega 3 Fish Oil to one of my lucky readers!
Giveaway starts on 10/23/14 @ 6pm PST. and ends on 11/05/14 @ 6pm PST.  The winner will be selected at random.  Lost, damaged or stolen prize items cannot be replaced.  Good Luck!!

180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Oxygen-Review



I talk a lot about Vitamin C Serums and Hyaluronic Acid Serums on my blog because I really feel everyone should have them as part of their skin care routine.  If you don't I can honestly say you are missing out on having some seriously great skin.  Plus, it's very affordable so there is NO EXCUSE!!
A lot of serums will put both Vitamin C & Hyaluronic Acid combined into one serum and that's because they offer a lot of the same benefits.  However, This Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum that 180 Cosmetics sent me has added another interesting ingredient to to help reverse the signs of aging and that ingredient is oxygen!
The 180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Oxygen contains the highest concentration of the absolute best quality Swiss Hyaluronic Acid available on the market and is enriched with natural ingredients for maximum results.  It also contains powerful antioxidants that protect skin from free radicals.
The 180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Oxygen is super lightweight and just melts into your skin.  This serum has helped with my fine lines and my skin feels & looks more supple.  I should add that I have oily skin and using a serum like this one works great for me and is a great choice for all skin types, including acne-prone.  My only recommendation is that you exfoliate on a regular basis and/or use a serum/lotion that has Retinol in it which will help remove dead skin cells which will help your pores from getting clogged!


I also wanted to mention how much I love the packaging for this serum.  The pictures just don't do it justice.  Not only is it a great, quality product that really works it also looks luxurious sitting on your vanity!

Go to Expederm.com where you can buy the 180 Cosmetics Pure Swiss Hyaluronic Serum + Oxygen and other great products or you can also purchase it on Amazon.com.

Salvere Vitamin C Serum-Review



Yes, it's another Vitamin C Serum I was sent to review!  
This one is from Salvere and it's a Vitamin C Serum but it also contains key ingredients like Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid.  All of those powerful ingredients fight to enhance skin integrity by lightening brown and aging spots, melasma and other hyperpigmentation.  It will plump up he skin and facilitate smoothness and radiance.  Salvere Vitamin C Serum will repair photo-damaged skin, uneven skin tones and skin blemishes.  It will also replenish lipids and increase firmness to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.  Besides all that the Salvere Vitamin C Serum will offer defensive protection for the skin against environmental pollutants and other similar external factors that bring about premature skin aging.  Whew, that's a lot of things for one little bottle of serum to provide!  
The Salvere Vitamin C Serum is really light weight so it absorbs quickly into my skin and I can use my other serums right on top of it and then if I need it I can follow with my SPF moisturizer.  Now that I have been using this serum for a few weeks I have noticed a great improvement in the condition of my skin.  It has helped diminish the appearance of my fine lines.  However. it has especially helped my Melasma.  I HATE my Melasma and I am always looking for a product to help make the spots lighter or go away entirely and I have found that Vitamin C Serum does just that so Salvere Vitamin C Serum has become a Must Have in my skin care routine!
If you have not added a Vitamin C Serum to your skin care routine then I highly recommend you add one as soon as possible!  You will have beautiful skin before you know it!


Make sure you check out SalvereHealth.org for more information on the Salvere Vitamin C Serum and the other products that they offer and you can also purchase it on Amazon.com!

Moringa Fit 1200-Review



I had never heard of Morigna before so I was excited when I was sent some to test out and review.  Of course, me being me I had to do a little research first and found out that Morigna has been around forever and is classified as a Superfood with 90+ nutrients making it a very powerful anti-oxidant!
I have been taking it for several weeks now and I have been around several people with the cold/flu, including my own daughter and I never did get sick.  In fact, I had my daughter start taking the Moringa Fit 1200 and I think it really helped her cut her sick time in half!

Will's General Raspberry Ketones-Review



Raspberry Ketones is another supplement that I take on a regular basis.  The science behind Raspberry Ketones is that is been shown to enhance metabolism and support the body in burning fat which can help with weight loss.  
Will's General sent me their Raspberry Ketones to review for them and as I said before I have been taking them on a regular basis.  I haven't been able to work out much the last few weeks because of a back injury and I really think the Raspberry Ketones has helped me maintain my weight since I stopped working out.  
I feel like the Raspberry Ketones have helped suppress my appetite along with speeding up my metabolism.  Will's General Raspberry Ketones is a great choice for a supplement if you are looking for that extra little helping hand in your weight loss journey or if you are just looking to maintain you weight!

Will's General Phytoceramides-Review



I have been talking about Phytoceramides so much I feel like I'm starting to sound like a broken record!  However, I am willing to take that chance!  I have been so impressed with the Phytoceramides supplements that I have been taking lately that I am hoping to convince at least one person to start taking Phytoceramides as part of their daily supplement routine.  (I would love to hear from you if have decided to start taking Phytoceramides!)
Will's General sent me their Phytoceramides to review for them and it's been great being able to test out another quality product.  I have been taking this supplement for the last few weeks and like I have said before I really feel like Phytoceramides have made a difference in my skin.  I have noticed that my skin looks more supple and even my pores seem to be less noticeable.  Is that possible?  I really think it is!

Will's General Hair Growth Vitamins-Review



C'mon who doesn't want longer, stronger hair?  I have been loving these Hair Growth Vitamins that Will's General sent to me.  I have been taking them for about a month now and may hair definitely seems a lot stronger and it also seems to have grown more than it normally in a months time.
One important thing to mention is that you should take as directed, which is 3 tablets taken daily with food.  I have a huge sensitivity to Zinc and if I take a supplement that contains Zinc without food it will immediately make me sick.  So just make sure each time you take one of the tablets you take it with food as directed.

Some of the benefits of the Will's General Hair Growth Vitamins are:
Supports Hair Growth
All Natural Ingredients Hair Growth Pills
Stimulate Vibrant and Healthy Hair Growth Production
Natural Thicker, Longer, More Vibrant Hair
Natural Hair Growth Vitamins

Luxe Beauty Microfiber Hair Towel-Review



I have heard great things about Microfiber Hair Towels but for some reason I never bought one for myself.  Thank goodness Luxe Beauty Essentials sent me one to review, otherwise I probably never would have known what I was missing out on!
The Luxe Beauty Essentials Plush Microfiber Hair Towel is super soft because it's made from double sided brushed terry.  I happen to have a lot of hair and at 19 x 39 inches it's the perfect size to fit all my hair!  It's also super absorbent, it dries my hair twice as fast as a normal towel, which means it cuts down on the time spent blow drying my hair which then means less damage to my hair!  Another bonus is that Luxe Beauty Essentials offers a Customer Satisfaction Guarantee, love it or your money back!  Now that can't be beat!


You can purchase this awesome Luxe Beauty Microfiber Hair Towel on Amazon.com!

Yalmeh Phytoceramides Premium Quality Plant Based Supplement-Review




If you have been following my blog you already know that I have become somewhat of a Phytoceramides addict.  Thankfully, the great people at Yalmeh sent me their Phytoceramides to review for them.  Taken as directed the Yalmeh Phytoceramides have helped keep my skin hydrated & the overall appearance seems to be a lot smoother.  I have been taking different versions of  Phytoceramides for about the last 3 months and I rally think the longer you take it, the better the results.  I also think Phytoceramides should be a part of everyone's beauty regimen!


Here are some of the benefits of taking Yalmeh Phytoceramides

Green Coffee Bean Extract by Will's General-Review



I have used Green Coffee Bean Extract off and on for a few years to help with & maintain weight loss.  One interesting tid bit is although I am allergic to Coffee I CAN have the Green Coffee Bean Extract with no allergic reaction.  I don't know why, maybe it has something to do with the chemical change when the Coffee Bean is roasted.
Anyway, Will's General sent me some of their Green Coffee Bean Extract ton test out for them along with a few other Supplements (stay tuned for those product reviews as well).  I added the Green Coffee Bean Extract to my supplement regime a few weeks ago and I have really noticed how  well it helps control my appetite, which is the main benefit of the Green Coffee Bean Extract so for me it really does work.  The key ingredient in the green coffee bean is a natural active compound called chlorogenic acid which also helps your block your body's ability to store fat and also supercharges your metabolism to burn more fat.
As with all the supplements I take, this one is also made with all natural ingredients!
