Hi lovelies! I am going to be talking about this beauty staple that I have been using for the past year. It’s Clinique even better dark spot corrector and optimizer. Lets first go over what this baby is. First off this is a serum, so you can include it to whatever beauty regimen you have going with no worries. The claims are that it can visibly improve dark spots up to 58% in a 12 week period. To be honest I didn’t bother to track the amount of weeks I have been using it before I started seeing results. I know I just started getting compliments on my skin tone 2 weeks into the regimen. I am on a 3 step beauty regimen but I am not using any other Clinique products. I am using Ole Henrikson and I just added this into it. I just do 1 pump which is enough for your who;e face, a little goes a long way. I put it on after my toner and before my moisturizer. As far as the claims I would back them because I noticed results immediately.
Even Better Clinical Serum is proven to help reverse the appearance of dark spots and blemish marks starting at 4 weeks. In 1 week, see a visibly brighter complexion. Soothing Optimizer keeps skin calm, helping it better resist future darkening. Both are dispensed from a dual-chamber bottle that separates each serum, preserving the purity and potency of the ingredients until right before application. I am the kind of person that when I try something I commit to it all the way, unless I have some type of adverse reaction. I got this bottle in November of 2016 and it just finished. Almost a whole year I have been using it and for $52 I would say it is totally worth the money.
I decided to use this to even out my skin tone because I don’t get much sun on my face. I wanted a more radiant glow. I have a few dark spots due to pregnancy. I figured I would give this a try. Now I am hooked and I am planning buying another one. Some of the key ingredients are, Vitamin C to help reduce the appearance of discoloration; advanced Brightening Yeast Blend to break up the appearance of dark spots; and encapsulated Salicylic Acid and Acetyl Glucosamine to exfoliate skin, speed departure of surface discolorations and enhance cell turnover. Optimizer features our Gyokuro Extract, a specially harvested Japanese green tea extract rich in antioxidants and anti-irritant properties.
If you are like me and want to achieve a more flawless natural look I would definitely fork out that cash to but this. I recommend this to anyone, unless something better comes along. Remember to always use as directed, till next time loves. xoxo
Hello lovelies!! I got sent these two amazing fragrances free for review. I have to say I wasn’t sure how well I was going to like them. I am particular to what I like in my perfumes. With that being said I just love the both of them. I am not found at all by strong smells, but the notes to these two are just right.
Lets start with saint, it is soft and enchanting. The fragrance has jasmine and Tiaré flower top notes with a delicious heart of mandarin, caramel, and sparkling Mirabelle plum. While this may sound over powering, there is vanilla, sandalwood, and creamy musk that build the intrigue of this perfume to something ethereal.
Now, let’s get a little naughty with Sinner. It’s dark, sexy, and it makes you feel like you can rule the world. It is not an overpowering perfume. It’s soft with hints of spice to it, when you’re feeling a little feisty. Cinnamon spices up vanilla and white florals at the heart of the fragrance, while base notes of vetiver, patchouli, and wood from the deeper, darker nuances.
The resurrection is real ladies and gents. Pick up one or the other. Maybe you’re like me and are a little bit a both. If you are just get both. You can layer both and wear them at the same time. You can’t go wrong with either one. Oh, before I forget check out my instagram for a Saint and Sinner inspired look @guiltlessglambeauty . Till next time lovelies!! xoxo
Hi lovelies!! I’m reviewing the Olay body wash in sweet peach; its from the summer collection. I feel in love with this body wash on my first day trying it. Right now I swear by it and I won’t look back. It’s not just the scent but the way your skin feels after trying it. Your skin feels like silk when you get out of the shower, even hot ones. I mean I have to have a hot shower, can’t live without it and if you didn’t know hot showers leaves you skin ultra dry. Usually I combat this with a rich body wash and a good body lotion. However, with this body wash if you wanted to skip out on the lotion for the day feel free. This body wash really does leave your skin that soft and silky. That’s just after one wash. After a week you have successfully nourished your skin and after the whole bottle well you can actually see visible results of the nourishment. Your skin begins to look healthy and has the silky feeling all the time. If you don’t like peaches Olay has a plethora of scents. I would definitely run out and get a bottle or two. Till next time. xoxo
Hi lovelies!! Today I will be reviewing the TonyMoly “I’m Real” Avocado mask sheet. Lets start off with I am a big fan of TonyMoly products. I lean towards a lot of K beauty products because their skin care takes priorities. Lets face it when it comes to looking your best whether with makeup or not, it starts with your skin. Just a little FYI your skin is the biggest organ in your body and like other parts of your body you should take care of it. You can’t stop the aging process but you can definitely slow it down a whole lot.
Now on to the the mask. Just like unicorns and mermaids, avocados are the latest in beauty trends. Avocados are a rich source of vitamins and minerals which is great for the skin. It contains the vitamin A, B, E, and K. These nutrients help even out skin tone and help reduce early signs of aging. It also helps brighten your skin and give it a radiant glow.
Like all products for the best results always go by package directions. However, in this case most of the directions are in kanji. So, I am here to help you guys out. Start of with a clean face. Then tear open the package and apply the sheet over your face. Leave on for 20 to 30 minutes. I left mine on for 30 minutes. Then you simply remove the mask and dispose of it. Then gently massage in circular motions the excess ingredients on to your skin. Viola all done! Till next time. xoxo
Hello lovelies! I’ll be reviewing another Miss Spa product. This time it will be the hydrogel treatment. Unlike my previous post about the Miss Spa gold mask, this I liked a lot. This product is to help alleviate the appearance of puffiness and signs of fatigue. So, if you have had a long night this is definitely something you’re going to want to try. If you’re like me and have dark circles this will also help with that. Now I do recommended doing this treatment twice a week for a couple of weeks, to notice a change with the dark circles.
Now for whats in this little treasure. It has pearl extract and vitamins A, B, C, and E. It is sulfate free, paraben free, and fragrance free. I don’t know about you but I really appreciate not having anything scented when it is that close to my eyes. The last thing anyone needs is an allergy attack. Oh, and did I mention it is not tested on animals. It feels like it just becomes part of your skin and it leaves it feeling rich and supple. The skin around the eyes is so thin and is usually the first place you lose elasticity that giving it that extra moisture is what gives this product a thumbs up for me.
You’re going to want to use this product immediately after opening it. Make sure you pat it on to clean and dry skin underneath the eye area. You’re going to want to gently press on to make sure it doesn’t slide off. You leave it on for 45 minutes. I suggest you lay back and relax and binge watch something on Netflix. Once your time is up, remove the pads and discard them. Pat the remaining solution onto the skin, try avoiding contact with your eyes because it will cause irritation. Like I always say for the best results make sure to use as directed, the directions are there for a reason. Till next time lovelies! Stay beautiful! xoxo
Hello lovelies! I know it’s been awhile but life does happen. I am back and doing what I love most and that is trying out beauty products and let you guys know whether or not it’s worth it.
I have recently tried this gold mask by Miss Spa. It’s a Hydro-gel facial mask. It is supposed to revive fatigued skin with peptides; while boosting collagen.
This should be a part of an anti-aging regimen. You are never too young to start. Think of it a preventive skin care. Everyone always ask me why I look so young. Well ladies beside staying out of the sun and getting the proper amount of water for your body. You do little things here and there that will only improve your skins elasticity and so forth. Oh and did I mention that smoking is a big no-no! That will make you age very quickly and make you skin look dull.
Well now on to the mask. This mask is supposed to leave you skin feeling smooth, while targeting signs of aging. It is also supposed to help your skin look brighter and younger.
Unfortunately, this mask says it supposed to melt onto the skin. Meaning it sticks on so that it can do its thing. That did NOT happen here. I couldn’t tell you if this mask actually works because it did NOT melt on to my skin. It just keep falling or sliding off, no matter what position I got in. It got so bad that the mask dried out before it was able to do anything.
I have used Miss Spa products before in the past and have been quite pleased. So, I had high expectations for this one. However, this was not the case here. I hope that they can reformulate the mask, that it can better adhere to the skin or something. So ladies and gents, I do NOT recommend this product but if you want to give it a try yourself then go for it!!! Till later lovelies! xoxo
Hi there lovelies! The hair experts over at Ouidad sent me this amazing new system. Let me tell you since day one, I fell in love with it. Here’s why; I live in Florida. It’s the humidity capitol of the states. I am also a mom with 3 kids under 3. I don’t exactly have the time to put a lot of effort into my hair everyday. I wanted the ability to have a good hair day every day. Like usual I always recommend that you follow the instructions.
First you gently wash your hair with the Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo. It’s sulfate-free so it’s, tender to those locks. It gives your hair an added shine. It’s the first step in creating an important building block for good hair.
You follow with the Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner. This works as a protective barrier that keeps those locks soft and manageable. Besides having wavy hair that frizzes constantly in the Florida whether, it’s damaged from years of color treatment. Curly hair is thirsty for moisture. My hair was down right dehydrated. This conditioner has a mix of Shea butter and Murumuru butter (A palm native to Amazon Rainforest vegetation in Brazil, which bears edible fruits. Murumuru butter, extracted from the seeds of the plant, may be used as a moisturizer.) You work this into your hair with a wide tooth comb. Then you wait 3 minutes and then rinse thouroughly.
At this point is when I usually do a leave in conditioner. However, I wanted to really give this system a shot. So, I decided not to and just go right into locking in that shine with the Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray. This works to help protect your hair from environmental damage. You break up your hair into sections and work it in with your fingers or wide tooth comb. I forgo the comb for this one. I am absolutely in love with this stuff. It works great and I don’t feel the need to have a leave in conditioner.
The final touch is the Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel. Okay, I was down right scared for this one. I am not a big fan of gel. It usually leaves my hair dry and flakey. I wasn’t going to back down at this point. Omg! Ladies This stuff I love it!!! It does not leave your hair dry or crusty. It actually feels quite natural. No one would ever think you have gel in your hair. You don’t even need a lot. You just break up your hair into sections and using the Rake & Shake technique (Link to the video on the technique. It’s really easy). The you can either air dry or blow dry with a difuser. I chose the air dry option. Woila! You’re done, easy peasy ladies & gents!
I definitely recommend the whole system. It’s affordable and keeps your hair looking good everyday. Till next time lovelies! xoxo
