Natural & Organic Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer by Valentia Skin Care


As a beauty blogger I am blessed at being able to test out lots of great skincare products and in the process I also discover some fantastic brands and Valentia Skin Care is one of them.  I've tested out several products from Valentia and because the products are such great quality and because I love what they do for my skin they have become one of my favorite skincare brands.
The newest product that I have been testing out is this Natural & Organic Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer.  It's loaded with some potent ingredients like Botanical Hyaluronic Acid and Shea Butter that help hydrate and nourish the skin while ingredients like Ginseng and Kojic Acid also help even out skin tone and firm the skin.
This is a lightweight moisturizer that is easily and quickly absorbed into the skin leaving it feeling soft and hydrated and it also adds a nice "glow from within" look to the skin as well.  In general, I have oily skin and this moisturizer actually seems to help balance out my skin.  It helps diminish my fine lines and overall my skin just looks more healthy and hydrated.
This is a great day time moisturizer but I have even used it as a night cream too.  It wears well under makeup and I haven't had any issues with breakouts.  I would recommend this moisturizer for all skin types.  I really think just about every skin type from dry to oily and even acne prone could benefit from it.  Plus, I think it's at a great price point at $25.00 for a 4 ounce bottle that will last forever.  Of course, it also contains all natural and organic ingredients that do some really great things for the skin which make it really worth it!

You can find this Natural & Organic Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer by Valentia Skin Care on the Valentia website or over on Amazon.com...

Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer & Hydration Injection Masque by ARK Skincare


One of the things I love about being a beauty blogger is all the great new skincare products and brands I get to discover!  I can definitely add ARK Skincare and their Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer & Hydration Injection Masque to my favorites list!  The packaging is next level and so are the products.
According to the ARK website ARK Skincare is all about producing products that deliver professional, salon grade results using the most innovative natural formulations.  As a result we get a highly effective and personalized skincare regime that's individualized!

Their Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer is specifically formulated for skin in the 30's and 40's age range.  I'm 43 so I'm well into the 40's category.  Even though I'm 43 I would have to say that I would still consider my skin type to be oily.  Having oily skin means I have to really pick and choose what kind of moisturizer I use on my face.  Most moisturizers formulated for more "mature" skins tend to be a little too heavy for my skin.  This Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer is somewhere in the middle.  I've found that it all depends on what else I am putting on my face.  If I am using a primer and a mineral foundation it's the perfect moisturizer for me.  However, if I am wearing a more nourishing liquid foundation on top of it my skin will start to get shiny around 11am.  Although, I have also been using it as my night cream and I love the way my skin looks and feels in the morning.  It has a nice glow and looks nice and smooth.  Of course I also use it on my neck and decollete morning and night!  Do not forget those necks and decolletes!!
Overall, this is a fantastic moisturizer that I am happy to have in my skincare arsenal.  It really plumps, hydrates and nourishes my skin and gives it the "glow from within" look which I love.  I have also noticed that since I have started using it that my fine lines are less noticeable so that makes this moisturizer a winner right there!

If your like me and have oily skin I would still highly recommend giving this a try.  You just need to think about what else you will be wearing along with it and make the necessary adjustments.  Or maybe try the Age Protect Skin Vitality Moisturizer that is formulated for younger skin.  However, if you have combination, normal or dry or mature skin you will be in heaven!
The Age Defend Replenishing Moisturizer retails for $70.00 for 1.7 oz and you can find it on arkskincareusa.com.


I must admit that I have probably never met a mask I didn't like.  I always feel like my skin looks and feels better when I use a mask and I try to do some version of a mask at least three times a week.  I do everything from clay, gel, cream and of course I love a good sheet mask.  My favorite thing to do is multi-masking.  For those of you that have been living under a rock and never heard the tem multi-masking it's essentially using several different masks all at once.  I usually like to use a clay based mask on the areas where my skin is looking and feeling a little congested and then use a hydrating cream or gel based mask on the areas that are looking dull and dehydrated.
This Hydration Injection Masque has become my favorite when my skin needs an instant hydration boost and when I am doing my multi-masking sessions.  This mask is so intense that after just 5 minutes your skin will look more plump and nourished.  This is a fantastic mask to use before a night out simply because you can have better looking skin in just 5 minutes!  If you have time or for more intensive hydration leave it on longer.  It can even be left on overnight if your skin is looking and feeling really especially depleted.
Whatever your the condition of your skin this Hydration Injection Masque by ARK Skincare can improve it in just 5 minutes.  Who doesn't have 5 minutes?  Formulated with multivitamins and Hyaluronic Acid your skin will look more nourished, rested, plump and radiant and feel more moisturized, soft and smooth after just one application.  Amazing!
The Hydration Injection Masque by ARK Skincare retails for $70.00 for 2.5 oz and you can find it on arkskincareusa.com.

Fresh Darjeeling First Flush Organic Loose Leaf Black Tea by Teaveli




Fall is the perfect time for Tea.  Really any time is a good time for Tea.  I am a huge connoisseur of Tea of all kinds so I love getting the chance to test out something new.
This is a Fresh Darjeeling First Flush Organic Loose Leaf Black Tea by Teaveli and it's lovely!  When you first open the bag it smells amazing.  In fact you may wan to just sit and inhale for a few moments and take in all the scents.  The best part is that it tastes as good as it smells!  It has a really great hearty flavor and you can almost taste how fresh it really is.  I read that this would be a good type of tea to brew Kombucha and it just so happens I am taking a class in a couple weeks on how to do that.  Perfect timing and I cannot wait to see what kind of Kombucha this tea will make!
If you love Black Tea then give this Fresh Darjeeling First Flush Organic Loose Leaf Black Tea by Teaveli a try!  Yum!!
