Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair product review. The thoughts in this blog are my own.

Hello my friends. I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas. Hard to think today is December 26, 2015. Still have some family here visiting for the holidays, but wanted to take some time to blog.

Today’s product is Valentina Exfoliating Scrub for Men. Have reviewed other products from Valentina, and each time I am highly satisfied. Believe I have used this product for almost a month now, and feel I can share with you my thoughts on this product.

Think it’s important to know that this exfoliating scrub is made from 98% natural ingredients. Yes this product is designed for a man’s skin, but it’s terrific for anyone who want’s great skin. A few of the natural ingredients are pumice, apricot seeds, olive seeds.

Everyone needs to exfoliate his or her skin. Personally I make a point to exfoliate at least twice a week. Valentia Exfoliating Scrub For Men can do several things for the health of your skin, and shall share them with you below.

* Removes dead skin

*Deep cleans pores

*Rejuvenates skin textures

*Draws out excess dirt & oil which can clog pores

While I use this scrub at least twice a week it’s gentle enough to use more. Valentia Exfoliating Scrub is highly effective, but also gentle. After exfoliating I feel as if my serums, and moisturizers can better absorb.

Like that this scrub is not heavily scented. Feel as if the exfoliating particles are the perfect size & texture. My skin does get exfoliating, but never experience any redness or flaking.  Now if your only exfoliating you face this 4fl oz jar should last a long time. With this scrub a little goes a long way.

Val3

Pros: Light natural scent, gentle to skin,  only a small amount of product is needed, not oily or greasy.

Cons:  Wish that  this product was in a squeeze bottle so no cross contamination could happen. That’s the only negative is the jar format.

Thanks to Valentia for allowing me to review another product. As I have reviewed a serum for them before knew that this product would be good. I feel comfortable saying this is a product I would repurchase as have their serums. Like it when a company makes products that are effective & affordable.

Product Review: Oleavine Neem Oil

Disclosure: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair product review.

neenoil

I was lucky enough to try a product which is new to me. That product is Neem Oil. Oleavine manufactures this oil, and many other products. Below I will share with you a description of Neem Oil.

*** Neem oil is a vegetable oil pressed from the fruits and seeds of the neem (Azadirachta indica), an evergreen tree which is endemic to the Indian subcontinent and has been introduced to many other areas in the tropics. ***

Neem Oil has been used throughout history for a multitude of uses. Of course it can be used topically on the skin, hair. It can also be used as a pesticide, and other home cleaning uses.
Neem1

I tend to use Oleavine Neem Oil mostly for personal care. My scalp can get dry at times, and I find adding few drops of Neem Oil to my shampoo helps. Another scalp treatment is to take a quarter sized of Neem oil into your hand. Next add a drop of your favorite essential oil such as Lavender. Make sure to massage it into the scalp, and leave on over night. Neem oil can also help with dry ends.

Neem2

Neem oil is also great to control bugs. I have many Rose bushes, and this year have had issues with Aphids. Instead of using a dangerous pesticide I like to use natural products. I take a spray bottle filled with water and add in a natural liquid soap, and Neem oil. Lightly spray the rose bushes, and this can deal with that issue. Neem oil can be used for many other bugs.

My thoughts: I do like using Neem oil. Only negative side is it’s odor. It has a natural, earthy odor. Normally I mask it’s natural scent with an essential oil like lemon or bergamot. Love that Oleavine Neem oil is 100% pure, and cold pressed. Like all of my oil products to be cold pressed. I find them to be more effective that way. This 12 fl oz bottle will last you a long time. Please find the link below to purchase on amazon.

Thank you Oleavine for allowing me to try your product. I would also like to thank all of my friends for stopping by my blog. Appreciate everyone’s support, and kind comments also. Have a blessed day.

Via Cosmedics Sea Whip Cucummber Detox Soothing Gel: Product Review

Disclosure: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review.

Over the last few weeks I have been trying a product from Via Cosmedics. The product is their Sea Whip Cucumber Detox Soothing Gel. This product is a gel, but in my mind it’s a mask. Below I shall share some information about the product.

Directions: Cleanse the skin thoroughly, pat dry. Apply evenly to clean, dry face. Allow product to work on the skin for 10-20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. For a more intense treatment, gel may be left on for several hours or overnight. For a cooler treatment, refrigerate gel. May repeat 2-3 times per week or daily for intensive treatment

via1

Benefits of using this gel: • Cucumber provides natural brightening, firming, calming, and de-puffing benefits
• Allantoin contains anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and ease dry, irritated skin
• Oatmeal has anti-inflammatory benefits that calm, soothe, and protect skin aiding in moisture retention and keeping skin firm
• Sea whip is an excellent healing agent, which neutralizes an enzyme responsible for irritation, redness and those with sensitive skin
• Chamomile and comfrey provide synergistic anti-inflammatory and powerful healing properties for dull, inflamed, and irritated skin
• Marigold extract is an excellent anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and helps to rejuvenate damaged skin
via2

My thoughts: I find that this product is great for so many skin types. My skin is more combination. Via Cosmedics Sea Whip Cucumber Detox Soothing Gel is terrific for even the most sensitive skin. Find that why my skin gets stressed or dry this gel helps to balance out my skin. Find this gel to be hydrating, and not heavy to the skin. Try to leave it on for at least an hour, but that is just my preference.

via3

Tips: For an extra cooling sensation I keep the jar in my refrigerator. It adds an extra layer of cooling & soothing to the skin. When your skin looks tired or lifeless just apply the gel/mask and in short time your skin will look great.

I do like this product, and it’s something I would buy again. Thanks to all of you for stopping by, and checking out my blog. Have a blessed day.

Product Review: ISA Professional Xanadu 24K Gold Serum

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair product review.

Good afternoon everyone. Hope all of you are having a wonderful Tuesday. Today shall be reviewing ISA Professional Xanadu 24K Serum. This serum is very special with the addition of 24K gold flecks in it. Don’t believe have ever seen any serum with 24k gold flecks in it.

isaserum1

This serum is unique as it combines both vitamin c & 24k gold. Have used this product for a little over a month now. First I want to share a product description from the manufacture.

isaserum2

Visually you can see the gold flecks in the serum. I love the concept of combining both vitamin c & 24k gold. This serum also has a faint powder like scent to it which I love. The directions say to apply twice a day. Of course do what works best for your life, and skin.

isaserum3

Serums are a crucial component to any skin care routine. A serum that works well on my skin may not be the best fit for your skin. In this blog just want to share with you my experience using this product. Of course for any product to be it’s most effective consistency it key.

ISA Professional Xanadu 24K Serum has many positives & some negative aspects to the product. Overall I have to say it’s a good serum, and have noticed some positive results.

Positives: This serum is hydrating, and hydrated skin looks younger. Find that the serum absorbs quickly. Have also noticed that my skin feels softer, and look refreshed. One pump of this product can easily cover your face, and neck.

Negatives: Listen I do like this product, but it has some negative aspects to it. My main issue with this serum is it feels sticky on the skin. Now this could be due to getting to much product in a certain area. Even after working the serum in with my finger tips for over a minute the sticky texture remains. I do feel there is bit to much of the 24k gold & needs more vitamin c.

After using this product for a month I do like it. Just wish something could be done about the sticky like finish of the serum on the skin. Having said that this product may be better for someone who is older. Yes it’s a quality product, and would highly recommend this to anyone with concerns of aging.

Want to thank all of you for stopping by my blog, and hope you have a blessed day.

Product Review: Soap.Club 100% Natural Handmade Artisan Soap.

Disclaimer: I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for a review.

Often most of us think of bar soap as a thing of the past. About a month now I have been testing out a soap from SOAP.club in citrus scent.

soapclubpro

Let me share with you SOAP.club product description & mission statement below.

*** The Soap.Club offers our customers the ability to purchase our amazing soap online or join our monthly membership service.

Soap is our passion. In fact, it’s our only product. We focus on premium quality soap aged up to 6 weeks and made fresh with pure ingredients that will stimulate your senses. The secret is our old-fashioned cold process soap making. Every product is made by hand, starting from stirring the recipe, cutting the bars and even packaging each individual item. Right away, you will notice the soft gentle lather that feels like lotion instead of rough sharp edges that feel scratchy or rough on your skin.

The cold process method of making soap helps enhance the fragrance. Many of the essential oils and fragrances provide the same properties used in aromatherapy and wellness programs. Feel the guilt free, sensual indulgence of our soap ***

Have used this soap for almost a month now. Was very happy to learn that SOAP.club soaps are made in the USA. Another positive aspect is that their soaps are 100% natural & handmade. Rare to find handmade artisan products these days. This company has so much passion for their products, and they should!

soap2

The fragrance of my soap is I believe Grapefruit & verbena. While the scent is noticeable, and fresh it’s not overpowering. Have noticed the fragrance on my skin for few hours after showering. Still it won’t mess with the your the scent of your perfume or cologne. The soap I received was a tan like color.

soap3

While using this soap noticed my skin did not feel tight or dry after. Many soaps in the chain stores can dry your skin out. SOAP.club soaps can cleanse & moisturize your skin at the same time. Using this soap was a real sensory experience. It made me excited to have a shower. Would recommend for anyone getting this soap not to leave it in the shower or bath. It’s not a cheap soap, and so want it to last. After using the soap I pat it dry, and keep it in a zip lock bag.

Have enjoyed using this product, and thank you to SOAP.club for allowing to review their product. Now I want to thank all of you for stopping by. Stay blessed, and enjoy your Tuesday.

Product Review: Oz Naturals Sunscreen SPF 30 Anti-Aging Solar Shield…..


Disclaimer: I was sent this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review. There are my thoughts, and experiences with this product.

While it’s only June the sun is out, and very hot. Today I want to share with you a product review for a product from Oz Naturals. Today’s product is their Anti-Aging Solar Shield sunscreen with SPF 30.

ozpropic

I have been using Oz Naturals sunscreen with SPF 30 for a little over a month now. Regardless of the time of year I wear sunscreen when going outside. Luckily I had the chance to review Oz Naturals Anti-Aging Solar Shield sunscreen with SPF 30. This sunscreen protects your skin from both UVA & UVB rays.

sunscreen1

Most important thing about this sunscreen is that it’s all natural. The texture of this sunscreen is lovely. In many ways it has a milky like texture. Noticed from using it that is has a clean, light scent to which I like. Find that it absorbs quickly, and does not leave any chalky like haze on your skin. I apply this sunscreen from my head to my legs. Was so HAPPY to find out that even during sweating this sunscreen did not burn or cause discomfort to my eyes. Thank you for that OZ Naturals!

Have to be honest about one point. One the box the directions say apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Now on the bottle it says…,”Apply evenly 3 minutes before sun exposre, and reapply every 90 minutes.” Since I use sunscreen often I wait the 15 minutes until sun exposure.

sunscreen2

Have used both drugstore & luxury brand sunscreen, and Oz Natural gives you the protection, and feel of the luxury brands. Having said that Oz Naturals does not charge you a luxury brand price. It’s slightly more than a drug store brand, but it worth the price. Currently I was able to find Oz Naturals sunscreen for $17.49 for a 4 oz bottle.

Overall I am very happy with the performance of this sunscreen. Would like it if this product came in a bigger size. Please find a link to directly purchase the product below.

Product Review: Adovia Dead Sea Scrub

Disclaimer: I was sent this product complimentary in exchange for an honest, and fair review. The thoughts in this blog are my own.

Good morning, and happy Sunday. Today would like to share with you a product review for Adovia Dead Sea Scrub in the Ocean Breeze scent. I regularly use salt scrubs, and have tried many brands. Have used other products from Adovia , and their products are high quality.

seascrub

Product Description: THE SEA SALT BODY SCRUB: Made with Real Dead Sea Salt – 100% Pure and Genuine for an infusion of 21 Minerals Essential to Proper Skin Function. Great Exfoliator and Moisturizer.

Works Great in The Shower or Bath – Also a Great Hand Exfoliator to use in the Sink or Foot Scrub.

BLOG0046

Since receiving this scrub I have used it several times. Like that the sea salt in this scrub is not to harsh. Yes it does the job of exfoliating, but it’s not harsh. If any of you have sensitive skin this would be a great scrub for you. Feel that the salt grains are the perfect size, and texture.

BLOG0045

Adovia’s Dead Sea Scrub smells amazing. I received the Ocean Breeze scent. While using this scrub you will get exfoliation, and moisturizing at the same time. My main tip for using this scrub is to apply to dry skin. Take some of the scrub in my hand, and work in circular motions. After have exfoliated everything I want like to rinse off in the shower. Like to use this scrub at least twice a week. That’s what works for me, but do what’s best for you skin.

Have to say this scrub has many positives to it. As it’s gentle to the skin you can use it often. When I use this scrub feel as if I am at an expensive resort spa. Due to this scrub being high quality you don’t need to use lots of it to get the job done. Let’s keep it real this scrub cost more than the drug store brands, but you get what you pay for. Adovia Dead Sea Scrub comes in an 11 oz tub, and it should last a long time.
