Bring On The Bright

luminous_dual_phase_vitamin_c_peel_4_2

 

Hi babes! I’m going to be reviewing the “White Marble Dual Phase Vitamin C Peel” by Erno Laszlo. I was able to try this product for free thanks to Influenster and Erno Laszlo.

It’s a clarifying two-step peel. It gently polishes skin and lightens dark spots and discoloration. Your complexion instantly feels polished and new. Furthermore, you skin will look more radiant, brighter, and smoother. There are protective antioxidants and collagen booster; with these two combines it helps refine and renew your skin.

From the first time of use it has made my skin softer and smooth. I have slightly textured skin on my left side from acne I had during my pregnancy as well as some dark spots. They have lighten as well. I have been only using this product for a month and the results are amazing. I feel like if I keep using this product it will not only slow down the aging process but also make my dark spots nearly vanish. I will be posting and update once I have thoroughly used this product.

I did some research on why this peel worked so well. Some of the ingredients in it are pretty amazing for the skin. Before I get to that I always recommend that getting enough rest and water are essential to having great looking skin. Besides using SPF in your daily skin care routine, make sure not to get too much sun. I know that sounds ridiculous and hard to do but its all about how important you skin is to you. Your skin is the largest organ of the human body and the first line of defense; you should take care of it.

This fabulous peel contains vitamin C. Why is this important for you skin? Well that is because not only does it help with dark spots, dullness but it brightens the skin and contains a powerful antioxidants that help boost collagen levels that help combat the aging process.

Collagen is a structural support protein that is essential for firm, youthful skin. Overall, the amount of collagen in the skin tends to decline with age, an ongoing process that is accelerated by a number of factors like sunlight, smoking, free radicals, and inflammation. As the synthesis of new collagen slows down, topical vitamin C is one of the most effective ways to boost collagen synthesis and slow its degradation.

In Tibet during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD), women who wanted to fight the outward signs of premature aging would rub sea buckthorn on their face and hands. The golden-orange berries of the sea buckhorn plant yield a deep-colored oil that is a major source of vitamin C.

It also contains carrot seed oil. This is important because it helps with by balancing dry skin, while helping with age spots and sun damage. Scientists think this has something to do with the “carotol,” a primary component found in carrot seed oil. Rumor has it that this can also help with sensitive skin as well. It can help moisturize dry skin and oily skin without clogging your pores. In other words this is great for all skin types.

Another key ingredient is lactic acid. This helps to exfoliate the skin without irritating it. This ingredient is controversial because some say it can lead to increased sun damage. While others say it can help reduce the appearance of aging, and they can be an especially good remedy against fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage. Lactic acid is an alpa-hydroxy acid.

Not all skin texture problems can be solved with an AHA product. If your skin develops thick patches or there are areas of swelling and lactic acid doesn’t seem to be working, it’s time to see a doctor. Some skin conditions are caused by rosacea, skin cancer and other underlying illnesses such as diabetes, a vitamin deficiency or a thyroid problem.

AHA peels are used with good outcomes for people with pigmentation conditions such as melasma, lentigo or freckles, and may help reduce or improve the appearance of acne scars. The reason there is concern over lactic acid and increased sun damage is that using lactic acid creams, lotions and peels also increases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so it’s important to be vigilant about sun protection, from regular applications of sunscreen to remembering to wear a hat, every day.

Like how I mentioned earlier this is a dual step process. Step 1: After you have washed and toned your face (Yes! tone before you use this product.), smooth peel over your face. Massage gently in circular motions for 3 minutes. Step 2: Mix the activator in your hands and massage onto your face over the peel. After one minute, rinse well with warm water and pat dry. At this point you can following with your face cream. You can do this once a week. I wouldn’t do it more just in case you might irritate your skin.

Another good things about this peel is that it does not contain any parabens, phthalates, petrolatum, sulfates and mineral oils. The peel costs $100 but it is worth it. You know I don’t really like over prices things that just do what other products do. However, this is something that everyone should be doing and it is a lot cheaper than getting a facial done at a salon. Well there you have it babes. Till next time. xoxo

I’m Real

2292432

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

Hydrogel Eye Treatment

goldeye_brill

 

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

Miss Spa Youth Renewal Hydro-gel Facial Mask

goldface_youth_2

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

Where you can get that glow?

It’s never too early to begin great skincare.

It’s never too early to start a good skincare regimen that targets the first signs of aging. Think of it as preventive care for your skin. Usually the first signs of aging start in the eye area. I mean it makes sense, since it is the most delicate part of skin. The wonderful people over at Exuviance sent me these eye masques, which I totally love. The price for this is $49 and it the box comes 12 packs. This is definitely one of those products that is worth the money.

The eye masques firm and hydrate the eye area while enhancing cell renewal and minimizing the look of fine lines and wrinkles with Lactobionic Acid and Vitamins A, C and E.

  • Lactobionic Acid refreshes and soothes
  • Bionic treatment firms skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of crow’s feet
  • Vitamins A, C, and E provide antioxidant protection and restore skin

Make a spa day out of it! Now if you wanted to kick things up a notch they have a 3 step systems that works implement the eye masques in the routine.

Of course always start with a clean face. Make sure the eye area is thouroughly dry. First start with the Depuffing eye serum. You see a major reduction in puffiness around the eyes within 4 hours. It targets puffiness and undereye bag. It also helps firm the skin around the eye area, including those lids. The micro-roller helps increase the circulation which helps with the production of collagen. There is caffeine in it which helps invigorate the skin. With hints of Chamomile, Green Tea and Cucumber refresh the eye area.

You follow with the Intensive Eye Treatment Masque. Remove the masques from the packet. There should be 2 inside. They are saturated but no worries, it won’t get in those lovely eyes. Gently place the pads underneath each eye. I put it as close as I could to my water line without becoming uncomfortable. Smooth the pads onto the skin. The stick on pretty good, so, you could go on about your business. Leave the pads on for 10 minutes. Gently remove the pads and discard; gently massage any excess solution.

Final step would be to follow up with the Hydrating eye complex. I love this stuff!! It’s super light and if your like me and suffer from dark circles; then you’re going to want to include this in your regimen.

  • Formulated with Gluconolactone and Lactobionic Acid (PHAs)
  • Provides antioxidant protection
  • Contains Vitamins A, C, and E
  • Hydrates with a soothing blend of botanicals

I definitely recommend the all three products. However, if your looking just to refresh those pretty lids the masques alone will do the trick. As always I recommend you use as directed; which using the eye masques 2 to 3 times a week.

Still not sure? Below I posted a before (top) and after (bottom):

As always lovelies tell me what you think? Share you thoughts and comments. Till another time! xoxo

Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Masque

Cool Eyes!

17-04-05-18-42-31-727_deco

 

Let me start with anything cucumber is so soothing for me. Naturally I would want to try “Cool Eyes” from “One bath & body”. I naturally have dark circles (damn those genes). It works like a fiber mask but for your eyes. When you open the packaging, there are two small little masks that go over your lids. It is already saturated in the formulation. One bath & body designed the little mini masks quite well. They resembled little cucumbers that over your eyes. The directions were pretty vague as to what to do once you take them off. I just lightly rubbed it in, in circular motions. Overall it was a pretty good product. My eyes felt refreshed, I’m not all too sure on the combating those under eye halos though.
