Insta Natural Vitamin C Serum

This review is for the Insta Natural Vitamin C Serum.  This product is appropriate for all skin types and is designed to defend against skin damage and aging.  Besides Vitamin C, the serum also contains Hyaluronic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Sea Buckthorn Oil and Plant Stem Cells.  Vitamin C is also the second ingredient, after Water, so the formulation is potent.

The serum is very lightweight; I apply it to cleansed skin and directly after my toner.  I like to apply this serum and my moisturizer while my skin is still damp.  The serum dries very quickly and does not leave a sticky or tacky residue on the skin.  Like I previously mentioned, I follow the serum with my normal moisturizer.  I have combination skin and my T-Zone stays oil free when using this product.  I also noticed that my skin stays balanced with the serum.  I don’t get the hormonal outbreaks or dry patches with the same frequency I do when not using the serum.

I don’t have any wrinkles, but I have developed the ‘parenthesis’ surrounding my mount (I attribute this to my brilliant smile).  The look and feel of my skin stays maintained with the serum, and I am luminous.

You can find the Vitamin C Serum, and more on the Insta Natural website.

PURE ARTISAN SHEA BUTTER ALL NATURAL SOAP BAR

This review is for the PURE ARTISAN SHEA BUTTER ALL NATURAL SOAP BAR – 3.75 – 4 OZ.  This is a nice soap that provides plenty of suds and does not dry out my skin.  I used the soap with my Clarisonic cleansing brush and it provided a wonderfully hydrating and deep cleanse to my skin.  There is a slight scent that dissipates as soon as I rinse my skin.  The scent is very faint and should not obstruct or interfere with anyone that is sensitive to scents.  While I do not have sensitive skin; the skin on my face will break-out if/when I use products that cause my pores to clog.  This is an all-natural soap that balances the level of oils and fats with cleansing agents.   You can purchase a sample size of this product for under $3.00 (which is what I received for this review).

Do yourself a favor and support an independent artisan.  You can purchase the soap on the Dazzle Beauty Store website.

HydraCap Deep Hydrating Conditioning Cap by Treasured Locks

This review is for the HydraCap Deep Hydrating Conditioning Cap.  I have natural hair that is also color treated.  I give my hair a lot of care and deep conditioning is part of my normal maintenance routine.  I usually deep condition overnight to ensure every section of my hair gets the amount of moisture it needs.  I will usually use a plastic cap on top of my hair and wrap a towel or t-shirt over the plastic cap.  This HydraCap is a new concept for me.  I washed and conditioned my hair like normal and placed the HydraCap upon my head; my hair is very thick and pretty long, so I turned my head upside down to ensure it all fit inside the cap.  I have used shrink wrap to secure packages before and this product works in the same manner.  As you expose the cap to heat, the plastic shrinks in size to secure the cap to your head.  You should begin around the edges of your head and then work your way up towards the center of the head.  I was surprised by how quickly the ‘shrinking’ process went.  But, I was very pleased with how much heat my hair retained after the shrinking process.  I achieved better deep conditioning in 60 minutes than I do overnight. The heat from the dryer coupled with the natural heat from my head and scalp gave me ample conditioning.  The price point of the HydraCap is good too at $1.00 per treatment.  Don’t hesitate on this one, this is a great buy.

You can purchase the HydraCap on the Treasured Locks website.

Anti-Aging Serum with AC-11®from Swissvita

This review is for the Swissvita Anti-Aging Serum with AC-11® – Fights Key Signs Of Aging and Wrinkle – Complexion Enhancing And Skin Tightening Face Serum- Intense Hydration And Powerful Repair Formula – 1.76 o.z./50g from Swissvita.  I really loved this serum in the beginning.  It penetrated my skin quickly and allowed me to apply makeup rather quickly.  Around the third week; I started to notice a difference in the texture of my skin.  It was like I had a lot of build-up, which lead me to believe I needed to have a chemical peel to renew my skin.

I researched the ingredients in the serum and concluded the PROGELENE, amongst other ingredients is allowing my skin to regenerate at a quicker rate than before.  This lead me to believe that cell-growth and/or regeneration is the reason I saw the changes in the texture of my skin.

I did a few chemical peels and am seeing some of the finest lines dissipate.  I know that my skin is uniquely different from everyone else; but I wanted to provide a probable explanation for some of the changes you may experience with your skin when using this serum.  My end result is a positive one; but I needed to incorporate more products to achieve my goal.

I do recommend it as my skin is continuing to improve.  You can purchase the serum on Amazon.com.

I Max Wrinkle Reducing & Lifting Cream from MaxLife USA, Inc.

This review is for the I Max Wrinkle Reducing & Lifting Cream fortified by Stem Cell, EGF & Peptides to Boost Collagen, Erase Fine Lines, Shoal Deep Wrinkles, Tighten Flabby Skin and Lift Sagged Skin from MaxLife USA, Inc.  I tested this cream out on my grandmother.  Who would be better than an 83 year old woman?  This cream is very, very thick.  However, it does not leave the skin greasy, oily and it does not clog pores.  My grandmother has remarkably youthful skin; especially when you consider her age.  She does, however, have very, very dry skin.  I helped her to apply the cream for the past few weeks.  The first thing we noticed was the dry skin; it began to recede after about 3-4 days.  The lines and wrinkles have become less noticeable because her skin is not as dry.  She also has some age spots on her face and neck that are beginning to fade.  In my observation, the cream is working to alleviate the lines, wrinkles and spots by hydrating her skin.  This cream is full of wonderful ingredients like Stem Cells, Peptides, Hyaluronic Acid, Algae Extract, Collagen, Albumin, Adenosine, Retinol and Oil Soluble Vitamin C.

I do have to constantly remind her to keep using the cream, but that is an indicator of her age and has nothing to do with this wonderful product.

You can purchase the I Max Wrinkle Reducing & Lifting Cream on Amazon.com.

50% Glycolic (AHA-Alpha Hydroxy) Acid Serum from MaxLife USA, Inc.

This review is for the 50% Glycolic (AHA-Alpha Hydroxy) Acid Serum for Chemical Peel-Medical Grade from MaxLife USA, Inc.  I like using chemical peels to combat old scars, hyper-pigmentation and dead skin cells.  This is a strong formulation and needs to be diluted, with distilled water, prior to using.  You should also conduct a patch test to ensure your skin does not react to the chemicals.  Continued use of this chemical peel will accelerate the turn-over of skin cells and will help to eliminate wrinkles, stretch marks and scars.

If you do not have an application brush, a cotton-ball can be used.  It will take some time to build up your tolerance (yes, this does burn).  The discomfort dissipates as you use the chemical peels with greater frequency.

My skin is doing great and the old scars are fading.  It is important to also use a generous moisturizer after a chemical peel.  You will also want to use sunscreen and avoid direct sun.

You can purchase the Chemical Peel on Amazon.com.

Volùm Lashes Natural 3D Authentic Mink False Eyelashes from Volúm Lashes

This review is for the Volùm Lashes Natural 3D Authentic Mink False Eyelashes- Individual Set of Prime Thick Fake Long Black Lash for Beauty and Makeup- Best Dramatic Top Wispies Extension Pair on Thin Eye Strip with Box from Volúm Lashes.  These are a touch of luxe and very nice to have.  I only wear eyelashes on special occasions because they add a lot of glamour and pizazz to my look.  These lashes are thick and full; they contain 550 individual lashes in every box and are hand crafted.  The lashes feel lightweight on the eye and do not give the ‘garish’ spider-eye look that I dislike.  These make your eyes pop and work from day into evening.  They add just the right amount of glam to my look.

You can purchase the lashes on Amazon.com.
