Green Coffee Bean Extract Cleanse Detox by Justified Laboratories



Here's the latest cleanse I have been testing out!  You know how I love a good cleanse!  
I wasn't sure if you were aware but I am actually allergic to Coffee (I know, the horror!).  It's really the strangest thing it makes my eyes swell and the skin around my eyes itches and then starts to peel, I am quite the sight to see when I have a reaction!  However, it just seems to be a reaction to the roasted coffee bean.  I can have Green Coffee Bean Extract with no issues at all, thank goodness!
That being said, I was raring to go and start this Green Coffee Bean Extract Cleanse Detox by Justified Laboratories.  It's supposed to help promote weight loss and also help curb your appetite.  I am happy to report that it did both.  Keeping in mind that any cleanse resulting in weight loss is not the same as fat weight loss, it's basically just waste weight loss, but I will take it!  I only lost a couple of pounds but that's what I love about a good cleanse.  I feel more renewed and even a little invigorated.  This Green Coffee Bean Extract Cleanse Detox is a quick and easy cleanse and I also found it to be a gentle.
There are studies that have been done that show Green Coffee Bean Extract can help lower blood pressure and reduced sugar absorption which are two other really great benefits.
The Green Coffee Bean Extract Cleanse Detox by Justified Laboratories is made with a proprietary blend of Green Coffee Bean Extract and is all natural with no added stimulants.  It also contains other potent ingredients that help support effective cleansing and detoxification like Fennel Seed, Cascara Sagrada, Ginger Goldenseal, Pumpkin Seed, Buckthorne Root, Licorice Root, Rhubarb, Citrus Pectin, Acidophilus, Cape Aloe, Bentonite Clay, Aloe Vera, Cayenne Pepper, Senna, Oat Bran, Prune Juice and Flax Seed Oil.
What are you waiting for?  Fall is the perfect time for a cleanse!


Head over to Amazon.com to pick your own bottle of this Green Coffee Bean Extract Cleanse Detox by Justified Laboratories!

Vitamin D3 5000 IU by AdvantaVita



As most of us already know our bodies require Vitamin D to function properly and a lot of us just don't get enough of it.  If you are outside in the sun all the time chances are you are getting plenty of Vitamin D.  However, a lot of people are probably Vitamin D deficient and are not even aware of it.  The older we are the more Vitamin D are bodies require and for women that's even more true but if your young and get ample amounts of sunshine then you are in the clear.  I'm 42 and feel like I get an "average" amount of sunshine, I'm lucky to live in an area where it's even sunny a lot during the fall and winter months however my doctor still recommends that I take at least 5000 IU everyday.  So, your best bet is to consult your own doctor to and find out how much they recommend you take.
Since I am on a Vitamin D regime and take it on a daily basis I am constantly trying out new brands that I come across and lately I have been using this Vitamin D3 5000 IU by AdvantaVita and I have been really happy with the quality.  I actually take a lot of supplements and I always look to see if a product is Organic or all natural and that they don't use filler or other artificial ingredients.  This Vitamin D3 5000 IU by AdvantaVita meets all of my requirements!  It's Organic, contains no soy, stearates, fillers, artificial colors or preservatives.  It's definitely a supplement that I would recommend, great quality, great product.

Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment by Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare


When I first received this product I assumed it was for the eye area.  After I used it a few times and realized how amazing it was I did a little more research and found that it's not just for the eye area.  It's actually meant to be used around the mouth and forehead as well and I have even been using it on my neck!
So, what is Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment by Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare?  Well, it's most similar to the SmartFX SmartEye Wrinkle Lift if you have ever used that product but I find Close Up to be a superior product and it can be used anywhere you have wrinkles that need to be smoothed out or puffiness that you need to get rid of.  It's a lightweight cream that is easily absorbed and it wears perfectly under makeup.  It literally just blurs out crow's feet, fine lines and wrinkles and leaves skin feeling more tight and firm.  So, say goodbye to those wrinkles, crow's feet, frown lines and smile lines!  #KillTheCrow
Close Up is the perfect temporary fix and can instantly take years off your appearance and thankfully it will last for hours!  It's perfect for a special occasion or if you know you are going to be somewhere where pictures are going to be taken.  Plus, it's formulated with potent anti-aging ingredients so there is also the long term benefit of the diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for using Close Up!
I am so impressed with the Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment by Christie Brinkley Authentic Skincare that it has me wanting to try more of the product line.  The products tend to be on the higher end of the price point (at least for me) but if the rest of them are anything like Close Up then I would say they would be worth the splurge!

Go to christiebrinkleyauthenticskincare.com for more detailed information on the Close Up Instant Wrinkle Reducer & Treatment and to take a closer look the entire product line up, it's pretty impressive and I would expect nothing less from the beautiful and ageless Christie Brinkley!

100% Natural Pomegranate Seed Oil by Pure Seed Oil Review + Giveaway



So, I have to admit this was my first ever experience with Pomegranate Seed Oil.  I feel like I have tried a ton of different oils but I am constantly surprised with what other oils are out there and I have yet to discover!  
Pomegranate Seed Oil is suitable for all skin types however after using it for awhile I think it would work best on dry or mature and aging skin.  It absorbs fairly quickly but it is an oil that is a little on the thicker side which is why I decided I would use it primarily around my eyes, neck and decollete.  If you follow my blog then you already know that even though I am 42 I still struggle with very oily skin and I found this Pomegranate Seed Oil a little too intense for the skin on my face.  However, it worked amazingly well everywhere else and as an occasional "Sleeping Mask" for my face.  When I would use it I night my skin was super soft and plump in the morning!  Besides being an effective moisturizer and skin plumper it also helps to improve skin tone, increase elasticity and of course it can also prevent the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!  #KillTheCrow
Pomegranate Seed Oil is a very nourishing oil that contains potent antioxidants and essential fatty acids and can be used anywhere on the body...think hands, cuticles and feet...even hair!  Pomegranate Seed Oil really helps to accelerate your skins natural renewal which is why someone with really dry or mature and aging skin would really benefit from it.  This Pomegranate Seed Oil would also make a great carrier oil if you wanted to add other Essential Oils to it and make your own special blend.

Organic Jojoba Oil by Deluxe Botanicals




Jojoba Oil is one of my favorite oils to use!  It's a universal oil that can be used just about everywhere.  It's one of the oils that works perfectly on my oily skin.  Jojoba Oil can actually mimic human sebum which is the oil that our skin naturally produces which makes Jojoba Oil the perfect facial oil for those of us with oily skin.  Basically, people with oily skin have an overproduction of sebum.  So, by using Jojoba Oil it can help trick the skin into thinking it's produced enough oil, thereby halting production of the natural sebum and resulting in balanced out skin.  Of course you must also make sure you are using a high quality and Organic Jojoba Oil like this Organic Jojoba Oil by Deluxe Botanicals.
Not only has this Organic Jojoba Oil by Deluxe Botanicals been great to use as my go to facial oil but I also love using on the ends of my hair to help control flyaways and repair split ends.  Sometimes people who have skin issues like clogged pores and blemishes don't realize that the products that they are using on their hair are directly effecting their skin. This is especially true when you go to sleep with unwashed and product laden hair.  While you sleep those hair products come off onto your pillow which can then transfer to your face resulting in clogged pores and blemishes.  It's taking the products you use on hair and putting them directly on your face (do you have a visual yet?)...Eww!  That's why using Organic Jojoba Oil on your hair is not only good for you hair but good for your face!  It's the one oil that you can put on your hair before bed and not worry about it causing unwanted face demons.  Plus, who doesn't love a product that can multi-task!  This is definitely a product that I would recommend for all skin types and all hair types.

Divine Age Guardian Cream by Perfective Ceuticals



I recently did a review on another moisturizer that I have been loving for day time and this Divine Age Guardian Cream by Perfective Ceuticals is what I have been using and loving for my night cream.
You could totally use this as daytime moisturizer, however, it is a more intense moisturizer and since I already have oily skin I like to use it at night.  If you have dry, normal or combination skin this would work great for either daytime or nighttime.  The Divine Age Guardian Cream by Perfective Ceuticals also has a more luxurious feel to it, from the packaging to the cream itself it just feels high end and something I would expect from a higher price point night cream.
What makes this cream special is the anti-aging technology combined with potent anti-aging ingredients like Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Matrixyl (Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4), Omega 3-6-9, Retinol and Ginseng Extract is formulated to hydrate, nourish, rejuvenate aging skin, stimulate collagen and diminish fine lines and wrinkles.  It also contains Licorice Extract so it helps even out skin tone and lighten hyperpigmentation, which is exactly what I need since I have Melasma!
I use this as the last step in my nighttime skincare routine and in the morning I wake up with soft, smooth and radiant looking skin.  It's really the perfect night cream and since it's non-comedogenic it's also perfect for any skin type!
Go to perfectiveceuticals.com for more detailed information about the Divine Age Guardian Cream and the innovative company behind it.  You can also purchase the cream on Amazon.com...

Active Hydration Facial Moisturizer by SkinDaily Skin Care Solutions



As a teenager I had oily skin and now at 42 I am still dealing with oily skin!  I really thought that by now my skin would have calmed down but not a chance.  The one big difference is that when I was a teenager I thought moisturizer was my enemy but when you know better you do better!  I now realize that moisturizing my oily skin is probably the best thing I can do for it.  I even have a love for facial oils and serums now that I know that hydrating oily skin can be beneficial.
I use a moisturizer in both my morning and evening skincare routines.  During the day I like to use a lightweight, all natural moisturizer that is quickly absorbed but provides anti-aging benefits as well.  This Active Hydration Facial Moisturizer by SkinDaily Skin Care Solutions fits that description perfectly and it's the perfect daytime moisturizer for me.  It's lightweight and quickly absorbed leaving my skin feeling well hydrated soft and smooth not greasy or oily at all.  This all natural and organic moisturizer contains the perfect mixture of Amino Acids, Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, MSM, Rosehip Oil, and a variety of botanical antioxidants that help hydrate, heal and repair skin.  This moisturizer really helps balance out my skin and provides me with much needed hydration while keeping my skin looking and feeling youthful!  It's even fragrance free so it would also work great if you have sensitive skin and actually I would recommend the Active Hydration Facial Moisturizer by SkinDaily Skin Care Solutions for all skin types!

Bright On! Brightening Crème by Everfairy



For those of you readers that don't already know I happen to suffer from Melasma.  What is Melasma you ask?  Basically, it's a really annoying skin condition that causes spots of hyperpigmentation.  Usually, Melasma is found on the face neck & decollete area and some cases of Melasma can be more severe than others.  My case of Melasma is not severe but it's definitely noticeable and like I said before...really annoying.  Sun perpetuates Melasma so using sunscreen everyday is a must!  I wear 50 SPF on my face and neck everyday.  However, keeping my Melasma in check is a daily battle for me which is why I am constantly trying every lightening & brightening cream I can get my hands on.
Most creams, lotions and potions that promise to lighten & brighten rely on Hydroquinone which can be toxic and is banned in several countries.  Thankfully some companies like Everfairy take a more natural approach!  Bright On! Brightening Crème by Everfairy is made from safe, natural and organic ingredients.  Bright On! uses Hyaluronic and Kojic Acid which not only helps lighten, brighten and even out skin tone but it also helps keep skin clear of blemishes and leaves skin nourished and hydrated.  It's really the prefect lightening cream for me and since I started using it a few weeks ago I have seen a noticeable difference in my Melasma spots.  No matter what I use my spots never fully disappear but being able to see visible results with a natural and organic cream like Bright On! Brightening Crème by Everfairy is pretty amazing.
I cannot stress using a daily SPF enough!  Especially, if you are dealing with hyperpigmentation issues like me.  I would also recommend using at least 25+ SPF, the higher the better.  If you don't use an SPF and you are using a lightening cream chances are pretty high that those spots you are trying so desperately to get rid of will come right back.
Go to everfairy.com for more information and to purchase the Bright On! Brightening Crème by Everfairy go to Amazon.com...

Anti Acne / Anti Blemish Treatment Gel by Elba Naturals



Two things I am a total sucker for...skincare products and anything organic!  So, naturally I LOVE this Anti Acne / Anti Blemish Treatment Gel by Elba Naturals!  At 41 years old I can't say that I have Acne but my skin is still very oily and I am definitely blemish prone so I really have to be careful about what products I put on my face.
As far as breakouts I will get the occasional blemish or two, especially if I am testing out any heavy creams but for the most part I usually only get hormonal breakouts once a month when Aunt Flow is visiting (if you know what I mean...lol).  Either way, this Anti Acne / Anti Blemish Treatment Gel by Elba Naturals works perfectly.  Not only does it smell amazing, if you like the smell of cloves like I do but I love what it does for my skin.  It's a lightweight gel that absorbs quickly and easily and even helps give skin a little matte effect which I need since I have oily skin.  However, the matifying effect isn't extreme so it would work on any skin type.  The gel also helps soothe and heal any current breakouts and helps any new ones from forming.  The Anti Acne / Anti Blemish Treatment Gel by Elba Naturals has found a permanent home among my other skincare favorites!
This is truly a great product that I would recommend for any skin type and even if you just use it for the occasional breakout if your blessed with normal skin.  I have tried several Elba Naturals products now and I continue to be impressed and cannot wait to see what they come out with next!

Organic Singbulli Darjeeling Tea by Golden Tips Tea



Mmmmm....Tea! I love Tea. There is nothing better than a warm cup of delicious Tea on a crisp fall morning. Being a huge Tea fan I have tried tons of teas. All kinds of flavors, black, green, white just about every type you can imagine. However, I have never had Organic Singbulli Darjeeling Tea! I have Teas similar in flavor but not Singbulli Darjeeling Tea.
This Organic Singbulli Darjeeling Tea by Golden Tips Tea originates from the Darjeeling estate in India and is located at an altitude ranging from 400 to 1350 meters and is spread beautifully across nine hills.  Singbulli manufactures some of the best Darjeeling teas.  It's most similar to a typical black tea but you can taste hints of fruit & Vanilla so I find it a little sweeter than a normal black tea.  For me, the Organic Singbulli Darjeeling Tea makes the perfect cup of morning tea!  It can help boosts immune system which makes Fall the perfect time of year to drink this kind of tea.  It can also help with digestion issues, purifies blood, helps lowers sugar and cholesterol levels, it can also help strengthen bones and can even prevent tooth decay among other things.


If you are a tea lover like me and you haven't tried Organic Singbulli Darjeeling Tea then you simply must get your hands on some!  Check out goldentipstea.com or you can also pick it up on Amazon.com...

Bionic Oxygen Facial by Exuviance


As a beauty & skincare blogger I have a few favorite skincare brands that I absolutely love and and Exuviance is definitely at the top of my list!  I have tried several of their products now and I am always impressed with not only their products but more importantly...the results!  Most recently I have been testing out their new Bionic Oxygen Facial.  If you follow my blog then you already know how much I love a good mask and this Bionic Oxygen Facial falls under the mask category for me.  However, it is very unique and actually quite fun to use!  
What is it?  The Bionic Oxygen Facial by Exuviance is a triple oxygenating blend that delivers an infusion of pure essential Oxygen to detoxify and it helps stimulates vital cell energy and provides essential support for optimal collagen levels.  Skin feels re-energized and complexion looks more youthful and luminous.
How does it work?  You massage a generous amount of the blue lotion type liquid in an even layer on clean, damp skin.  Within five minutes the blue lotion turns into a thick, white, oxygenating froth that tingles and then gradually disappears.  Once the white, oxygenating froth has completely disappeared and stops tingling then you just rinse your skin to reveal de-stressed, radiant and more soft and supple skin.
After I use this Bionic Oxygen Facial my skin really does feel like I have just had a facial at the Spa.  It's just has an overall glow, and it feels like the dead dull skin has been sloughed off leaving new skin in it's wake.  Skin looks fresh, bright and feels amazing!
For best results use 3-4 times a week.  It's also perfect for "special event skin"!  With all of the Holiday parties on the horizon this Bionic Oxygen Facial by Exuviance would be a great investment and it would give you that healthy, "glow-from-within" look we all want, perfect for those Holiday parties!
I think investing in your skin is one of the best things you can do for yourself and this Bionic Oxygen Facial by Exuviance is SO worth it and a little goes a long way so one bottle will last you for quite awhile!  If you haven't had the pleasure of experiencing any Exuviance products yet this one would be a great start.  You can find it and their other fabulous products at Exuviance.com.

Pure Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug by Stubborn Mule



If you have ever had a Moscow Mule both in a normal glass versus a Copper Mug then you already know that the ONLY way to have a Moscow Mule is in a Copper Mug.  If it's not made in a Copper Mug then don't even bother with it.  They don't even taste the same when it's in a normal glass.
This past year I have had my fair share of Moscow Mules and they are definitely one of my favorite cocktails.  However, I found another cocktail that is as equally delicious as my beloved Moscow Mule.  It's called a Strawberry Basil Lemonade and I found the recipe for it over on the thekitchn.com, you just need to adjust some of the measurements to make sure that it fits into your Pure Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug by Stubborn Mule instead of a 16 oz. glass!  Make sure you try this one out, it's not only delicious but super refreshing.

Strawberry Basil Lemonade

1 Copper Mug
3 strawberries - de-stemmed
5 basil leaves
1.5 ounce Smirnoff Strawberry Vodka
1 ounce Island Oasis Strawberry Puree (or just pureed strawberries)
Fill with Lemonade (I use Organic Lemonade)

Muddle 3 strawberries - de-stemmed, with the five basil leaves and Smirnoff in a 16-ounce glass. Mix Strawberry Vodka, and Island Oasis Strawberry Puree in mixing glass or martini shaker. Add ice, shake for 15 seconds and pour into glass. Fill with lemonade and stir.
Garnish with extra strawberry and basil.


The Pure Copper Hammered Moscow Mule Mug by Stubborn Mule is made from 100% pure Copper and is hand crafted in India.  It's also dishwasher safe but I recommend hand washing and drying with a hand towel to preserve the Cooper.  You can purchase this beautiful mug over on Amazon.com (styles may vary).
