Opal Pink, White and Blue Swarovski crystal Charm {Review}

Charms, charms. I so love charms, that is why I was very excited when I found out I was one of the lucky bloggers chosen to review the Opal Pink, White and Blue Swarovski crystal Charm.




Product Description

  • Opals Swarovski Crystals 
  • 4.5cm Core 
  • To Fit Pandora and Other 
  • 3mm Bracelets 
  • 10mm x 8mm

My Thoughts

First off, the charm is so pretty. It's tiny, but it's definitely cute. You can tell that the charm was delicately crafted. Each Swarovski crystal was set with care and I just know that the crystals won't fall off easily. They are all perfectly clear and they sparkle. I placed it with my other charms and it looked great. I'm sure it will also look great as a necklace charm.

Konjac Facial Sponge With Activated Bamboo Charcoal Review


I may already be in my forties, but there are times that I still break out. I read somewhere that Konjac Facial sponges with activated bamboo charcoal work to eliminate acne and slough off dead skin cells and give you a glowing and well nourished skin. I was recently sent a sample of Konjac Facial Sponge With Activated Bamboo Charcoal to test and review.




Product Description

The sponge is 100% natural by fermenting the edible konjac fiber, No chemical additives added! Gently Massage and Exfoliation: improve the blood circulations and remove the dead cuticles. Deep cleansing: the very soft surface can remove the pore-clogging impurities. Natural weak alkalinity: the konjac sponge has natural weak alkalinity so it can help to keep the weak alkalinity status of the human body, and it can also clean your face and body even without any cleansing milk or shampoo.

My Thoughts

The sponge is hard, but once you submerge it in warm water, it will turn soft after a few minutes. I used it to exfoliate my face in a circular motion with a drop of my facial cleanser, then I rinsed it as usual.

My skin felt soft and smooth after washing and in as little as 1 week, my face cleared up. I love the sponge and I love how it leaves my face squeaky clean and smooth. The sponge comes with a string, so you can hang it to dry after use. Once in a while, you can also sterilize it by soaking it in boiling water for a few minutes.

Overall, I had a good experience with the sponge. If you are looking for a more natural way to fight pimples and acne, this a good product to try. It's affordable, it's all natural and it contains no harmful chemicals.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Konjac Facial Sponge With Activated Bamboo Charcoal through the Wonderpiel website and on Amazon. The sponge is fairly priced at $10.00.

My Thoughts

I'm glad to be reviewing Wearever's newest addition, the Seamless Unique Dry Panties™. It's seamless, the material is soft and it's not irritating to the skin.

It's easy to apply on the skin and it does not leave an oily look. I apply it right after showering and I love that it keeps my skin moisturized all day long.

Choose The Perfect Bedsheets


Your bed is where you retire after a long day and where you wake up to start a new day. And during weekends or no school days, this is where you spend most of your time lying around, reading a book or watching TV. So, it's only right to make your space as neat and comfortable as possible.

Using sheets that are clean and soft makes your bed comfortable and cozy. It's the sheets and pillows that come in direct contact with your skin and if you're using sheets that are rough, getting a good night's rest is not possible. Soft sheets don't have to be expensive. You can actually find affordable bedding at www.ogotobedding.com.

http://www.ogotobedding.com/brown-plaid-best-discount-custom-modern-comforter-sets-on-sale-p-201.html


Cotton is the most popular fabric in the market because it's durable and soft. Nowadays, cotton blends with other materials like rayon and bamboo to produce different types of textures. The key is to touch the fabric and see how it feels on your skin. If you think it is soft and comfortable enough, then you're in good company.

I like choosing bamboo because it is sustainable and in case you don't know, bamboo is naturally antimicrobial. The material sips up moisture, it is soft and comfortable so,when choosing a bedding, this material is well worth investing in.

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.
