Vitamin C Serum {Product Review}

Hello everyone! Today I am reviewing the Even Glow Vitamin C Serum from Valentia! I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review through Valentia Skincare and Brandbacker.

The bottle comes with a nice little stopper. It's a dark bottle, but the liquid is golden yellow and smells really, really good. I can't pinpoint exactly how it smells, but I think it is citrus, perhaps. Whatever it is, it is good.

The serum contains ingredients like rosehip oil, vitamin c, and green tea extract. It helps to even your skin tone, reduce wrinkles and lines, and just in general really help your skin in so many different ways. It also happens to boost skin collagen, which helps your skin have more elasticity and look younger.

I really like this Vitamin C serum because it doesn't make my skin feel dry or sticky when I put it on, and once I put some moisturizer on over top it just feels amazing. It's nice too because you only need the slightest amount, and can put it on certain spots, or all over your face and neck. I think it's really had some positive effects of my skin. I've gotten into the habit of using it twice every day. I love it's easy and simple application and that the stopper keeps it from dripping. I just think it's a really nice product overall.

Seaweed Moisturizer {Product Review}

Hi girlies! Here I am again with another review. You may rejoice because it is not a garcinia cambogia or whatever review. Nope. Today I'm reviewing something that every girl is encouraged to use. Moisturizer! Awhile ago I talked about my quest for the perfect moisturizer and whatnot, well I've been given the opportunity to review more. This one is the Seaweed Complex Lotion from Foxbrim. (I received this product free through Tomoston in exchanged for my honest review.)

 I know what you're thinking. Seaweed lotion? I know right. That sounds like the coolest thing ever. That's what I thought anyway. Okay, so this technically isn't a moisturizer, though that's what I've been using it for mainly. It is in fact a lotion, as it says. But it gives facial instructions on the bottle, while also mentioning it can be used as an all body moisturizer.

Anyway, it comes in a nice stout bottle, which is just about the length of my palm or a little taller. It has a nice pump. I have to carefully squeeze out the amount I need or I'll use too much. It's wayyy to easy for this girl to get careless with pumps. Haha.

 Okay, this lotion is thicker in consistency than the previous moisturizers I have reviewed. I guess it has more of a lotion consistency. Because of this, I found myself using a bit more of the lotion than I would if it were thinner, because thicker seems to spread less. Perhaps that's just my brain, but that's how I do it. The scent I have a hard time describing. I almost want to say it smells like hand sanitizer, like the kind they use in hospitals, but oh so much pleasanter. I think that's probably a bad description. It smells healthy. Like growing things, or something.

 Which makes sense. It is seaweed lotion, after all.

 As far as the ingredients of this nice little item, well... There are over 90 minerals in it alone, plus many awesome ingredients, including blue green algae. It has anti-radiation properties to protect you from the sun's rays even long term. Basically, I like this lotion. The fact that many key ingredients come from the bottom of the sea makes it pretty amazing. What do you think? You can pick up a bottle on Amazon.

Carcinia Cambogia and Advanced Cleanse {Product Review}

 I do a lot of reviews because I enjoy testing new things and letting people know about my experiences with them. So perhaps it was only curiosity that led me to try yet another type of garcinia cambogia in the hope of a miracle pill. Okay, I never thought that, but these things are pretty much touted as being really amazing at helping you lose weight. So yeah, I tried it again. But this time it was a weight loss kit that came with the garcinia and a cleanse pill thing.

 Once again, it could have been just be me and my body, considering some things I may possibly have issues with, but the stuff didn't really work. I may have lost a pound on the three plus week I spent on the stuff. So not really a lucrative investment for me.

 The company touts that their mixture of garcinia cambogia and slender cleanse will help with the following things...

-Weight Gain
-Mood Swings & Irritability
-Gas & Bloating
-Inability to Loss Body Fat
-Sleeping Problems

Honestly, it didn't help much with any of these things. At all. I wasn't really have sleeping problems, so that's not a factor, and any clearance in my skin is probably due to the skin care regimen I've been doing. Plus my skin wasn't exactly an acne warzone in the first place. So I don't know. Maybe it will help other people, but this cleanse didn't work for me. I think I'm almost done with these miracle pill reviews. Looking forward to that day. :P

Infinite Joy {Product Review}

My tea face.
Hey-o girlies! Tonight I have a review some of ya'll might be interested in. I've been given the opportunity by Tomoson and Reduxa Inc. to review Reduxa's Infinite Joy tea.

 I don't know about you girls, but I am a tea person. Being a big singer, tea is kind of a necessary and routine part of life. That is, hot tea. I don't drink a lot of the sweet tea usually, mostly because I drink water instead often. Anyway, I was pretty excited to review this item.

Pretty soon a nice sized pouch arrived--a full sized product. There were 30 tea bags inside the pouch. That is just awesome. Anyway, allow me to explain about the tea before I actually review it.

 According to Reduxa, this is a herbal tea that supports natural weight loss and has 21 natural ingredients to support that. It also is just good for you in general and contains ginseng which is good for you and helps you lose weight too. And all of these are 100% natural ingredients. Which is awesome.

 I confess, I can't comment on the weight loss aspect of it, which is my fault. I tend to save my tea for
when I need it, like when my throat hurts, or I have a big singing event, so I didn't even crack into this stash until earlier this week. So I couldn't tell you if it helps you lose weight. I'm sure it does.

I can tell you that it tastes delicious. I am pretty picky with my tea. Usually I only drink peppermint because most other teas just don't taste right to me. Not so with this one. I love the taste of spices on my tongue, I think there might even be a cinnamon type ingredient, and the citrus taste is there. It's just a good tea. Sweetened with honey, it's awesome.

 So if you've never tried tea for weight loss, or would just like to try this, I think it's a wonderful thing and highly recommend. Yum!
