Refresh Eye Recovery Serum {Review} #refresheyeserum

There is no doubt that cucumber and potato juice both work to eliminate dark circles and puffy eyes, but a good eye serum is not as messy. I was recently given the opportunity to review the Eye Recovery Serum by [Re]Fresh. I am not new to this brand and I love their products, that is why I was so excited to try the eye serum.



Product Description

This is our newest product - due to launch March 9th! However, we want to reach out to bloggers and see how you like the product and can introduce it to your readers. Sorry, the product photo is still being worked on, so this not the final image, by any means.

Refresh's Peptide+ Intense Eye Recovery serum is a dynamic and effective dark circle elimination treatment. Using an active ingredient mix of purified soy, rice and yeast peptides, the formula positively stimulates blood circulation away from the eyes to dramatically reduce dark circles and puffiness.

Benefits

• Reduces dark circles and puffiness around the eyes
• Restores important moisture levels
• Soothes and softens the skin
• Is safe and gentle to use around the eyes






My Thoughts

I'm glad that I'm one of the first to have tried the serum as it was only launched recently. As a blogger, I work late nights. I need to finish the chores and see that my family's needs are met before I can start writing articles and doing reviews. Dark circles and puffy eyes are my constant companions!

The serum is unscented and it has a nice consistency. It is easy to apply and a little goes a long way. It soothes and relaxes tired eyes instantly and it didn't sting. The serum is easily absorbed and I love that it kept my eyes moisturized for hours. My skin feels soft and smooth to the touch.

I've been using the eye recovery serum for more than a week now and to everybody's surprise, my dark circles are lighter and the eye bags are smaller. The first persons to notice are my husband and daughter. I'm still watching the fine lines, but with what the serum does to my skin, I'm sure it will continue to amaze me in the weeks to come.

Recommendation

If you are looking for a product to combat puffy eyes, dark circles, crow's feet and fine lines and wrinkles, the serum is worth giving a try. It contains purified soy, rice and yeast peptides; ingredients that are known to significantly improve eye bags and erase dark circles.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Refresh Eye Recovery Serum through the Refresh website. The serum is fairly priced at $49.95. For more info and updates, you may also visit their Facebook page.

Disclosure: I received a sample of this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own and was in no way influenced by anyone or the brand.

Both necklaces are cool! They may just be gold plated, but you can tell that they were done with care. I just hope they will not fade over time. The chains and the charms are cute and they look sturdy. They are of high quality and I'm sure they will last a long time.






My kids were thrilled that they spin! Of course, both necklaces will go to the daughter who's crazy over Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Overall, we loved the twin necklace set. If you are looking for a unique gift, these necklaces are perfect.

Vitamin C Serum for face By Radha Beauty {Review}

Nothing eliminates dark spots and gives you brighter skin than a Vitamin C Serum. Add Hyaluronic acid and you are on your way to soft, beautiful and young looking skin. Today's discussion is about the Vitamin C Serum for Face by Radha Beauty. They are so generous, I also received the Retinol Moisturizer as a bonus.





About the Product

This exquisite Vitamin C Serum is guaranteed to leave your skin radiant and more youthful looking by neutralizing free radicals & is proven to stimulate collagen & reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Infused with 20% ACTIVE VITAMIN C - Clinical strength 20% vitamin c serum for your face + vegan hyaluronic acid is the absolute highest quality vitamin c serum available.

USE WITH MOISTURIZER FOR BEST RESULTS - Use this powerful Vitamin C Serum with a high quality moisturizer like Radha Beauty Retinol Moisturizer. This cruelty free and organic Vitamin c serum does not contain alcohol, parabens or sulfates and is safe for all skin types.

My Thoughts

I love that this serum is bottled nicely. I tried a lot of Vitamin C Serums and most of them were simply packed in brown bottles with glass droppers. This product looks expensive, but actually, it is not. And it comes with a pump! I like that, so you can easily dispense the serum. The serum is unscented and is colorless. It also has a nice consistency and is not sticky. It's easy to apply, dries up fast and is absorbed quickly. As soon as you have finished applying, you can feel how soft and smooth your skin becomes.




Along with the serum, I also received a Retinol Moisturizer. I used it after the serum and it kept my face supple and plump all day. I love that it didn't leave my face looking greasy.





Overall, these two products work effectively at moisturizing the skin. I like how it keeps my skin hydrated. If you are looking for skin care products to brighten age spots, minimize the appearance of pores, moisturize skin and erase the early signs of aging, these two are worth giving a try.

Where to buy?

You can purchase the Vitamin C Serum for face and the Retinol Moisturizer through their Radha Beauty website and on Amazon.

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.
