Vitamin C Serum by Majestic Pure {Review}


I am always on the look out for new beauty products, especially now that I am in my late forties. I can proudly say, though, that at my age, crow's feet and sun spots are the only things I need to be concerned about. Vitamin C is believed to brighten dark spots and improve the appearance of wrinkles. I've been using it for months and I never doubted its ability to brighten sun spots and combat the signs of aging. Today, I am reviewing the Vitamin C Serum by Majestic Pure.




Product Description

Vitamin C is critical for human body and plays an important role in maintaining resilient skin. Vitamin C 20% is a high potency serum for use on facial areas. It fights premature aging and UV damage by replenishing skin's vitamin C levels to help to combat and even reverse time's effect on the face. With its antioxidant properties, Vitamin C 20% Serum is a key co-factor in the production of collagen which improves skin tone and texture. Stabilizing skin's levels of vitamin C help to counteract wrinkles formation. The 20% Vitamin C Serum fights free-radical damage and sun damage and improves pigmentation issues. It protects against UV damage like discoloration and fine lines. Purchase with complete peace of mind, we are confident we have developed the absolute best Vitamin C Serum available. If you are not completely satisfied with Majestic Pure Vitamin C Serum, we will refund your entire purchase.

My Thoughts

The serum comes with a glass dropper and it has a very mild scent. It also has a nice consistency and it's easy to apply. Just like the other serums that I've tried, this is absorbed fast and it dries up quickly as well. I love that it doesn't leave a greasy look.

It's been more than a week and my sun spots continue to improve. They are noticeably lighter now and my skin feels very soft. I've also noticed that my pores are getting smaller.

If you are looking for a product to fade dark spots, moisturize skin and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, this bottle is worth giving a try. The serum does not irritate the skin and it's great to use every day.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin C Serum through the Majestic Pure Cosmeceuticals website and on Amazon. The serum is fairly priced at $19.50.

Vitamin C Serum by New Radiance Naturals {Review}


If you haven't tried adding Vitamin C Serum to your daily skin care, it's about time you do. It helps brighten dark spot and correct skin imperfections. Today's discussion is about the Vitamin C Serum from New Radiance Naturals.




Product Description

New Radiance Naturals Professional Vitamin C 20% Serum combines the highest form of active, bio available Vitamin C + E with the highest form of pure Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Ferulic Acid , Amino Complex and Organic Aloe to create a potent, concentrated anti-aging solution that goes on smooth and penetrates deep into your skin cells to bring back radiance and firmness to your face, and fade wrinkles, lines, discoloration and age spots. Many of our customers indicate they have used other products but see results for the first time ever with our serum.

Ingredients Organic Herbal Infusion, Organic Aloe, Vitamin C (Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate), MSM, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Witch Hazel, Vitamin E, Carbomer, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Ferulic Acid, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Jojoba Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Ethyl Hexyl Glycerin.

My Thoughts

Most of the Vitamin C Serums that I have used have no scent. This one has a Eugenol like scent. If you are familiar with the scent when you enter a dental office, that's what Eugenol smells like. Eugenol is commonly used in Dentistry. It's not overpowering and it disappears within a minute of application; and among all the Vitamin C Serums that I've used, this is the only one with the claim that it can be used for the hands.

The serum has a nice consistency and it is absorbed fast. I like that it does not leave an oily look. I've been using it for more than a week now and I noticed that the appearance of my skin is brighter, the pores are smaller and my skin is well moisturized.



If you are looking for a gentle, yet effective product to battle the signs of aging, this is a good one to try. It's 98% natural and 72% organic.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin C Serum through the New Radiance Naturals website and on Amazon. The serum is fairly priced at $29.99.

All opinions expressed here are 100% my own. However, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

DOLCE Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron by Xtava {Review}


Thank you Xtava for making this conversation possible and for providing me with the sample to facilitate this review. I was very excited when I found out I was approved to review the DOLCE Ceramic Ionic Tourmaline Flat Iron / Hair Straightener.




Product Description

  • ELEGANT AND POWERFUL - With its Sleek design and fast heating ceramic plates this flat iron offers a combination of elegance, power and precision reaching temperatures of up to 430 Fahrenheit degrees

  • SAFETY - The Dolce flat iron is equipped with an automatic safety mechanism that will turn off the device when not in use. The device also offers a digital locking function to prevent any tampering with the unit 
  • CASE INCLUDED - Travel and storage case with heat resistant material included with the unit.

My Opinion

The flat iron looks really cool and I just love the color. As soon as my niece arrived from school, we tried it right away. I like that the heating plates are made of ceramic. They heat up pretty fast and you can easily control it to your desired heat. The best feature of the Dolce Flat Iron is it allows you to personalize your settings to your desired style and hair type.







I did the half part of my niece's hair; the photos will show you the difference.





It didn't take me much effort to straighten up her wavy hair. I also tried it on my short hair and I didn't have a hard time using it.

Overall, I had fun using the flat iron. It's easy to use and you'll have gorgeous and straight hair in minutes. It automatically turns off when not in use and it comes with a nice case, so you can easily bring it along with you when you travel.

Facial Mask with Dead Sea Mud and Kaolin Clay {Review}


At my age, I still suffer from breakouts from time to time, but instead of treating it with acne products, I use mud masks and tea tree oil. Mud masks help clear my face and it makes me feel good that I am not applying a chemical laden treatment on my face. Today's discussion is about the Facial Mask with Dead Sea Mud and Kaolin Clay. I'm not familiar with Kaolin Clay, but apparently, it is rich in minerals and has a healing ingredient.



Product Description

- Fighting a daily battle with breakouts, blackheads and oily skin?
- Tired of wasting time, money and energy on useless products?
- Want to avoid harmful and toxic chemicals? - Tired of bad results - or no results at all?

WHO KNEW HOW POWERFUL AND BENEFICIAL CLAY AND MUD COULD BE!

* Rich in Antioxidants, Botanicals & Minerals that Soothe & Nourish All Skin Types
* Clarify & Tone Combination, Oily, Acne-Prone & Dry Skin
* Restore PH & Moisture Balance to Keep Your Skin Healthy & Hydrated

My Thoughts

The mud mask has a very nice citrus scent. Once applied, it has a cooling sensation that relaxes the skin instantly. It dried up quickly and after I've washed it, I felt the tightness of my skin, but it's soft and smooth as well. My skin feels refreshed. And just to try its moisturizing ability, I didn't apply a moisturizer after I've washed it off. Surprisingly, my skin felt well moisturized all day. I've used this twice within the week and already, my face started to get clear. The pimples are gone and the blemishes looked lighter.

Overall, I'm satisfied with the results I am getting. If you are looking for a more natural way to get rid of acne, blackheads and blemishes, this is a great product to try. It's made from all natural ingredients and it's gentle on the skin.

My SIL modeling for me.


Where to buy?

You can purchase the Facial Mask with Dead Sea Mud and Kaolin Clay through their website and on Amazon. It's fairly priced at $10.35. You can also take advantage of the 20% off coupon code for the facial mask. Just use the code WVB63OPU before check out.

Getting pregnant quickly


While it's very easy for many women to get pregnant, there are those who struggle to conceive.  If you are one of those who are having a difficult time, below are some tips.

Getting pregnant should be the most natural thing in the world, right? Well, it’s not always that simple. Many times, getting pregnant quickly becomes way more complicated than it should be. However, according to our friends at www.pregnancytips.org, there are a few things that you can do to make getting pregnant a little bit easier.

First of all, knowing when you ovulate is of the utmost importance because there are only a few short days each month when a woman can get pregnant. So, use an ovulation predictor kit, chart your basal body temperature, or pay attention to your cervical mucus to figure out when you are ovulating. Also, make sure that once you time ovulation you plan sex properly so that you are having sex at the right time. Some couples choose to have sex a couple of days prior to ovulation, since the sperm can live longer than the egg, and it can be ready and waiting. Your doctor can give you some other helpful hints and advice on getting pregnant quickly and easily.

Hyaluronic Acid Serum by Sieva {Review}


Ever heard of Hyaluronic Acid? If you still haven't, Hyaluronic Acid is capable of boosting moisture levels and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Notice how baby's skin is soft and smooth? That's because babies' skin contains a lot of this acid that locks in moisture. As we get older, our bodies produce less and less of HA, making our skin dry and lose its elasticity. Today, I'm so glad to be reviewing Sieva's Hyaluronic Acid because this is not just an ordinary serum. Vitamin C was added to help ditch free radicals and repair damaged skin.

Product Description

What it is formulated to do:
  • Increases skin hydration up to 90% 
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Calms and soothes irritated skin 
  • Boost collagen and firmer skin 
  • Helps skin retain moisture 
  • Helps leave skin feeling supple, soft and smooth




My Opinion

The serum has a very mild floral scent that I like. Actually, I smell a hint of lavender and it smells really nice. Unlike other serums, this one is a little sticky. It's easy to apply though, and it dries up quickly. Best of all, I love that it does not leave an oily look.

I've been using it for almost a week and I can feel that my skin is well hydrated. It feels soft and very smooth to the touch. I also noticed that it's firmer and my sun spots are less visible. I'm not sure if the serum works to brighten dark spots, but I did notice that mine improved slightly.

So far, I like the results I am getting from the serum and I will continue to use it over the next few weeks. If you're looking for a product to hydrate the skin and make it firmer, this one is worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Hyaluronic Acid Serum through the Sieva website and on Amazon. It retails at $19.95; a fair price compared to other brands. Plus, it's bottled really nicely and it looks expensive. This would make a great gift especially that the holiday season is right around the corner.

Makeup By One Direction Limited Edition {Review}


I can't describe how excited I was when I found out I will be reviewing not one, but three tins of Makeup by One Direction. Back in August, I already reviewed this newly launched makeup and I even had a giveaway for my readers.






There are 5 tins available for this makeup, one for each member of the band. Each tin includes the following:

Eye Shadows:
Nobody Compares- Metallic silver
Tell Me A Lie- Metallic nude pink
Same Mistakes- Metallic mint
I Would- Smokey brown shimmer
Summer Love- Smokey purple haze
Everything About You- Smokey black shimmer

Eye Pencil:
I Want- True matte black

Lip Gloss:
Loved You First- Bubble gum pink
One Thing- Frosted pink ice
Irresistible- Shimmered pearl
Heart Attack- Creamy rose shine

Lip Gloss Top Coat:
Over Again- Silver glitter sparkle

Nail Varnish:
Stole My Heart- Magenta pink shimmer
Alive- Multi-coloured glitter flakes

My Thoughts

I received three makeup palettes; Liam, Zayn and Harry. Each palette has the same makeup. The colors are sparkly and bold and as you can see in the photos, they are nicely packed. The tins look expensive and the photos of each of the band member made them more attractive. Teens and adults alike will surely fall in love with this makeup.



The makeup is very gentle to the skin and even hours after application, it didn't melt or form into a cake. It's long lasting and it works on all skin types.

Overall, I had a wonderful experience with this makeup. If you still haven't thought of presents for your teens or friends and family who love makeup, this would make a perfect gift.

Where to buy?

The Makeup by One Direction limited edition was launched last November 15 and is available at the following stores:

Sears
USA
Kmart
Target
Walmart Canada

I am also offering my dear readers a chance to win a limited edition makeup set. Simply join the contest using the giveaway tool below. Good luck!

Find cheap men’s clothing at Tidebuy


Still can't think of a gift for your main man this coming holiday season? Finding the perfect gift for your partner can be quite a challenge, especially if he is as meticulous as my husband. I am sure many of you can relate. Every time the Christmas season comes, I can shop for presents for all the people in my list in as little as one week. But for my husband, it takes me forever.

Oh, he likes clothes, but there are so many details you have to pay attention when buying clothes for him. He's not much into designer clothes; he would rather wear simple shirts and pants, but you cannot just buy any shirt or pants for him. He doesn't mind if you buy it at Target or Walmart, so long as he likes it, then it's alright. He doesn't like shirts with lots of prints or the ones with big logos. He doesn't like shirts that are too long or too short or the ones with pockets. These are things that most guys don't really mind, but a big deal for my husband.

It's a good thing a friend told me about Tidebuy cheap men’s clothing online. From the metro sexual, stylish men, sports fanatic to the men who like to wear it simple, they have the most affordable finds. I was able to score a Solid Color V-Neck Long Sleeve Shirt for only $15.19.



It's very simple and just the way he likes it. From now one, buying clothes for my main man won't be as tough. I also found a couple of nice hoodies for my son. I'm so sure he'll love these...




Check http://www.tidebuy.com/c/Mens-Clothing-102097/ now so you'll see how affordable their men's clothes are.
