Farsali Trifecta

Hi lovelies!! This year has been a busy one to say the least. I have things much more organized now. So, I will be posting more regularly.

Today I will be reviewing Farsali. I wanted to see what all the hype was for myself. The review will consist of the Unicorn Essence, Rose Gold Elixir, and the Volcanic Elixir. The Jelly Beam highlight will be a whole other post.

I’ll begin with the Unicorn Essence; this is an antioxidant serum and primer in one. It is ideal for all skin types and its also oil-free. Its free of sulfates and parabens. It’s supposed to protect skin from free radical damage, while also prepping your skin for your makeup application.

First off let me say that it smells delightful. I am not a fan of things that go on my face to have an overpowering scent. This particular product hit the mark on the strength and type of smell that you have on you face. It feels good when you put it on and my skin quickly absorbs it. I personally use this as a primer. If you didn’t know this works well as an eye-shadow primer too.

Let me further explain why Unicorn Essence is an antioxidant serum. It has Acai berry extract which is commonly used in anti-aging products. Its rich in Vitamin A, B, C, & E. In a sense it revives your skin by healing damaged skin and restores its moisture.

It’s also contains Goji berry extract. If you haven’t heard of this fruit; then you need to start taking it. For starters, eating this fruit helps with your heart and boost you immune system. The benefits of the extract for the skin are remarkable. It is high in vitamin A, so, it contains plenty of antioxidants; this helps with the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Eating goji berries and using Unicorn essence will help improve skin elasticity. It also helps with reducing the appearance of scars. Goji also helps damaged skin. In addition, goji berries contain two known endogenous skin antioxidants, which are heme oxygenase-1 and metallothionein. These two antioxidants have been proven to facilitate in photoimmune protection. That means it helps protect your skin.

Goji berries can help combat the onset of dehydrated skin because of the amino acids they contain. Amino acids aid in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin hydration, and improve skin color and tone. In addition, to amino acids, goji berries also contain polysaccharides. Polysaccharides have been known to have antioxidant properties, and their presence in goji berries help to increase skin hydration, as well as to tighten and firm the surface of the skin, thereby promoting the appearance of a radiant, youthful glow.

Unicorn essence also contains elderberry extract. This is the superstar of antioxidants. This helps against free radicals. They’re anti-bactirial which is good for acne prone skin. It helps with allergic rashes and is an anti-imflammatory. This extract is what makes it good for all skin types.

Lastly, it has blueberry extract. Now this may not sound as exotic as the other extracts. However,  the blueberry extract is just as important. Blueberries contain more antioxidants than green tea. They are loaded with vitamins A, C, & E. Blueberries whether you ingest them or use the extract on your skin; they will help make you look younger, revive your dull skin and make it look brighter. It also helps repair sun damaged skin.

I personally use this product everyday as a primer. I have loads of different primers and this one is my favorite one. I have never used it as an eyeshadow primer just cause I personally use some concealer as a primer for my eyes. I also use this to make powder highlighters pop more. I personally will take some of my powder highlighter and mix in a drop or two of the unicorn essence and dab it on. I let it dry a little bit and then blend it in and voila. It is a little pricey. You get a 1 oz. bottle for $54. However, I would definitely recommend this product it is worth the money in my opinion.

Moving on to the Rose Gold Elixir. This is also ideal for all skin types. This is recommended for daytime use. It is a lightweight hydrating beauty oil. It has anti-aging benefits. It is supposed to leave your skin naturally radiant and glowing. The base of this luxurious Elixir is Rosehip seed oil. Rosehip seed is made up of 77% fatty acids — high in linoleic acids, vitamin C, and vitamin A (retinol) — all essential for skin health. Rosehips have been found to regenerate tissue and reduce the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and stretch marks.

Rosehip seed oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while reducing scars and fine lines. Safflower seed oil is less aggravating to skin and contains about 78% of linoleic acid, which is undoubtedly a secret weapon in fighting against acne problems. Linoleic acid, its principal fatty acid, is an essential fatty that cannot be synthesized by the human body.

Pumpkin seed oil is rich in vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids as well as antioxidants, therefore it has tremendous benefits for the skin in terms of retaining moisture, fighting free radicals and maintaining a youthful appearance. Vitamin E works to block free radicals from the body, which play a large part in the aging process. It has basic antioxidant properties that everyone needs.

Lemongrass oil has one key benefit which is skin healing properties. It is also perfect for getting even and glowing skin. Orange peel oil is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory which makes it an ideal ingredient in your skin and hair routine. This oil isn’t just for acne-prone skin though: It’s been shown to increase the ability to absorb vitamin C, collagen production, and blood flow, all of which are essential for anti-aging.

I personally haven’t used this on my face at all. I use this to hydrate my lips before I apply a matte lipstick.  So, I can’t really recommend it for your skin or not. That is something you would have to decide for yourself. However,  I do recommend this product for your lips. It makes your lips plump and luscious, especially if you’re wearing a matte lipstick.

Lastly we have the Volcanic Elixir. This elixir is great for all skin types; especially acne prone skin. It is ideal for night-time use.

It contains Tamanu oil. There are a lot of benefits associated with Tamanu oil. It has a wide range of natural treatments for acne and acne scars, eczema, psoriasis, toenail fungus, stretch marks, age spots, skin rashes, general scarring, dermatitis through to anti-aging and as an ingredient in making good skin products for oily skin.

Tamanu Oil can be used as a stand-alone product, whether it be solely as a product for oily acne skin or for the prevention or reduction of scarring or just for beautiful, blemish-free skin. Not only can you use Tamanu Oil for skin rejuvenation but you can even use Tamanu Oil for hair and scalp rejuvenation as well. It also seems to great for healthy, nail growth.

I personally use this product every night before going to bed. I apply just like a serum. I love it. It smells earthy and its thick and feels good on the skin without leaving an oily residue. I recommend this product. It is less expensive than the other two but I believe just as important in your beauty routine. I believe that Farsali really knocked it out of the park with these 3 little miracles.

If you guys would like to see a tutorial on  how I make my highlighter pop with the unicorn essence, or how I prep my lips with the rose gold, or a simple tutorial on my night-time regimen, let me know. Till next time babes! xoxo

Benefit’s Kabrow Vs. ABH Dipbrow

 

Hi babes!! I’m going to be doing a side by side comparison on Benefit’s Kabrow and Anastasia Beverly Hill’s dipbrow pomade. I’m a big fan of both products and I have both and I decided to blog about it just in case some of you were having a hard time picking one or the other.

Kabrow is a cream gel. It is buildable for however natural or dramatic you may want your brows to be. This depends on the look I’m going for with me. There is an angled brush that comes with it. Apparently it is supposed to convert to a full size brush but I haven’t been able to figure it out. I’ve been using it the way it comes. The application is still precise for me. It backs up the claims about lasting for 24 hours and being waterproof.

ABH’s dipbrow pomade there is a lot of hype for this brow product. It’s a buildaable matte pomade that is supposed to stay put. I have combination skin; the area around my eyebrows tends to be oily. I need a smudge proof brow product. Unfortunately, ABH failed the test when it came to this. Another down side is that if you don’t already have an angled brush, you need to get one. What is great about this product is that it’s available in more shades than the Kabrow. However, I really like this product for everyday use. If you’re trying to go for a natural look, then I definitely recommend this.

Well I leave it up to you babes. If you are an ultimate glam queen that needs smudge proof brows than go for Kabrow. If you like the more tone down beauty looks than I recommend the ABH dipbrow pomade. Till next lovelies!! xoxo

Even better?

CLQ00010

 

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

Sweet Peach

61fWv6ql2KL._SY355_

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

I’m Real

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
