Anti Aging Eye Cream by Mimi Fontaine-Review



I love a good eye cream & I have been testing out some really good ones lately and this Anti Aging Eye Cream that Mimi Fontaine sent me to review is definitely one of them.  The Anti Aging Eye Cream by Mimi Fontaine contains hydrolyzed collagen, hydrolyzed elastin, licorice root extract, vitamin A & E all of which help with everything from dark circles & puffiness to fine lines & wrinkles.  The consistency of the eye cream is fairly thick but it's easily absorbed leaving the skin soft & hydrated.  I love how it seems to smooth out & fill in the fine lines!
I also love that the Anti Aging Eye Cream by Mimi Fontaine is also Paraben free and they do not test on animals.


Wouldn't you love to have an Anti Aging Eye Cream that nourishes the delicate eye area while minimizing fine lines?  Go to Amazon.com for more information and to purchase the Anti Aging Eye Cream by Mimi Fontaine.

Yumi Beautiful Vitamin C Serum with Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid and 14 Organic Extracts-Review



Yumi Beautiful is another brand that I have come to love.  I did a review on their Rose Hip Oil and I am currently testing out their Asteria Anti-Aging Serum and not only do they make great, quality products I also love their packaging, they look & feel expensive and they look really pretty sitting on my bathroom counter!
Yumi Beautiful sent me their Vitamin C Serum several weeks ago and I have been testing it out on mostly my face in my morning & nightly skincare routines.  The Yumi Beautiful Vitamin C Serum is the prefect blend of Vitamin C, Aloe Vera, Hyaluronic Acid and other natural ingredients.  The serum is clear and slighty thiicker than water, it's also very lightweight and absorbs really quickly.  It leaves your skin feeling moisturized and really soft and because it's so lightweight it's perfect to wear under makeup.


Go to YumiBeautiful.com for more info and to check out their other products and you can also purchase on Amazon.com.

Ultra Lift Treatment by Foxbrim-Review



Foxbrim is another skin care company that has become one of my favorites and I love it when I get to try out their new products. (You can read some of my other Foxbrim reviews here.)  I have been using their new Ultra Lift Treatment that they sent me for the last several weeks & I have been really happy with the results.
I have been using the Ultra Lift Treatment on my neck & decollete area and I have noticed that the lines on my neck seem less noticeable and the skin tone on my neck & decollete area is more even.  Unfortunately, I have some Melasma on my neck and decollete and because the Ultra Lift Treatment has Panthenol in it which helps exfoliate dead skin cells and to reveal fresh, new skin & helps diminish the look of my Melasma.  The Panthenol also helps plump, moisturize & heal the skin.  The Ultra Lift Treatment by Foxbrim also contains other quality, natural ingredients like Vitamin A, Peptides and Hyaluronic Acid.  The Ultra Lift Treatment is very lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin and I love that little goes a really long way! 


Go to Foxbrim.com to check out some of their other products and go to Amazon.com to purchase the  Ultra Lift Treatment by Foxbrim for yourself.

Influenster #ModaVoxBox-Review



Thank you Influenster!  I was so happy that I was selected to receive the #ModaVoxBox that was filled with great products to review.

Here is what I got to review...
It couldn't have been more perfect timing to be able to test these out!  With the Cold & Flu season in full force around the office these bad boys were put to good use.



I loved taking this to my Barre3 class with me.  Not only did it quench my thirst, it replenished all my electrolytes!



Love, love, love this lotion!  This stuff is awesome for super dry hands & feet, it absorbs quickly and leaves your skin feeling really soft.



This cocoa taste just like the one mom used to make from scratch!  So yummy :)




Loved this lipstick!  It's super creamy and left my lips feel soft & moisturized.



Another great product from Rimmel!  This white lip liner helps keep your lipstick from smudging and bleeding for up to 7 hours.


My favorite Rimmel product!  I love this mascara.  It coats every last lash and doesn't clump!




This product was totally new to me and it will be something that I re-purchase when I run out.  This made my hair feel really soft and more manageable.  Loved it!  Plus, it's Paraben & Mineral Oil free.



This was one of my favorite boxes from Influenster!  Want to know how you can get a VoxBox & try out new products?  Go to Influenster.com for more information. 

 I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Klamath Blue Green Algae Supplement by BRI Nutrition-Review + Giveaway


*Klamath Blue Green Algae Supplement by BRI Nutrition

Klamath Blue Green Algae is a new to me and since I haven't heard much about I did a little research and found out that it's a great source of protein, with about 6 grams in each 100-gram serving and it includes all the essential amino acids.  Not only that, Klamath Blue Green Algae Supplement by BRI Nutrition also provides modest amounts of several important minerals, including calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, as well as small amounts of zinc and phosphorus.  The algae also contains vitamins A, C, E and several of the B vitamins, including thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6 and folate.  I have been taking the Klamath Blue Green Algae Supplement that BRI Nutrition sent me to test out for them and I have been enjoying the benefits of it.  I feel like my energy has increased and I even seem to be more alert.  With all my sleeping issues I need all the extra energy & alertness I can get!  I know all the vitamins and minerals in the algae are really good for my overall health as well.

BRI Nutrition has generously offered to give a FREE bottle of their Klamath Blue Green Algae Supplement to one of my lucky readers!  Just enter the giveaway below, starts 11/25/14 @ 11 am PST and ends 12/06/14 @ 11 am PST.

Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive by Monat-Review


I have really been enjoying testing out all of the different hair oils that are on the market right now.  I have had a chance to test the entire spectrum of hair oils from low end to high end and I definitely have my favorites.  One of those favorites is the Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive that iFabbio & Monat sent me to test out for them.
First of all, let's talk packaging!  We beauty bloggers love our packaging and the packaging for the  Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive does not disappoint.  The bottle for the Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive looks & feels high end & luxurious and I love that you just have to press the "button" on the top of the lid to draw the oil into the dropper, it's a very cool & innovative feature.
The Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive is actually a dual oil that can be used on your hair & skin.  The lightweight oil is unique blend of  11+ molecular ingredients, that includes vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, beta-carotene, omega-6 fatty acids, nutrients and amino acids, suitable for all skin and hair types.  All of these ingredients have been proven to mimic the body’s own natural oils to reduce hair thinning, prevents further damage and adds volume and shine.  The Capixyl™, is a special ingredient that is powered with Red Clover Extract, a gentle emollient that reduces scalp inflammation, strengthens and thickens hair, and hydrates the scalp to stimulate natural, noticeable hair growth.

I have only been using it on my hair for the most part, however, I love rubbing any remaining oil into my skin after I have applied it to my hair and it leaves my skin feeling really soft and supple.  The oil is very lightweight & has a light, almost citrus scent to it and when I apply it to my hair it's quickly absorbed and makes my hair feel silky, soft and leaves it looking shiny & healthy.
Since I have been using the Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive on my hair for several weeks now I have really noticed how my hair feels & looks healthier than it did before I started using it, proof to me that the Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive works!  For me, this oil is like magic in a bottle!  The Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive does come with a hefty price tag of $99.00 but like I said it's magic in a bottle and apparently magic is expensive!
Monat has a lot of other hair care products that I would love to try and if they work even half as good as the  Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive then they are bound to be pretty fantastic.

Make sure you also check out this really informative video about Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive that I linked below...

Premium Green Tea Extract-Review



So if you don't already know I am a HUGE green tea fan!  I drink it all the time and I use Matcha Green Tea in my smoothies almost everyday as well.  Green Tea has so many health benefits so it's something that I have become quite passionate about, especially in the last year.  Green Tree Life Sciences sent me bottle of their Premium Green Tea Extract to test out for them and I have been taking if for a few weeks now.  The Premium Green Tea Extract by Green Tree Life Sciences is mostly geared toward weight loss but it's also loaded with some powerful antioxidants too!  I loved that boost of antioxidants and I have had a ton of energy thanks to the naturally occurring caffeine.
I am pretty much of the policy that when it comes to Green Tea it's pretty hard to go wrong.  So, I think the Premium Green Tea Extract by Green Tree Life Sciences is a great supplement, especially if you have a hard time drinking it because of the strong green tea flavor that is associated with most green teas.
Go to Amazon.com for more information and to purchase your own bottle of Premium Green Tea Extract!

Perfect Caralluma Fimbriata Extract by NutriRevolution-Review



So, I have to admit I had NEVER (I know, it's shocking to me too!) heard of Caralluma Fimbriata Extract before so when NutriRevolution offered to send me a bottle to review for them I had to do a little research first to find out why it would be a good supplement choice for me.  First thing I learned was that Caralluma Fimbriata Extract is used to decrease appetite and aid in weight loss and then I also found out that it's also used to quench thirst and to increase endurance.  Thankfully, Caralluma Fimbriata Extract was right up my alley!
I have been taking the Perfect Caralluma Fimbriata Extract by NutriRevolution for a few weeks now and I can attest to the fact that it does help control my appetite but I haven't really noticed if it has helped quench my thirst or increase my endurance.  It's still a win for me since it does help control my appetite.

Optimal Omega 3 by Optimal Health Labs-Review



Studies suggest that Omega 3 Fish Oil provides great health benefits for wide range of diseases from cancer, asthma, depression, cardiovascular disease to ADHD, and autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis.  Optimal Health Labs sent me their Optimal Omega 3 and I have been taking it everyday for about 3 weeks now,  Thankfully, these Omega 3 Fish Oil softgels are the burpless kind so I haven't had any of those annoying fishy burps!  Along with all of the other health benefits I have also noticed that my hair seems to be more shiny and my skin even feels more soft.
