L’Oreal Revitalift Bright  Reveal Daily Scrub Cleanser Review:

 

I’ve been using this product for about a month. The micro-pearls and Glycolic acid gently exfoliate while I’m also cleansing my face.

L’Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser Review
L’Oreal RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Scrub Cleanser As we age our skins natural ability to shed dead skin cells declines. So to keep your skin looking bright, even toned and smooth adding an exfoliator is vital. I started testing this product when I #gotitfree from Bzzagent and L’Oreal Paris I’m rating this cleansing scrub 4 stars Let me tell you why.

1 star–This has gentle micro-pearls and glycolic acid. The micro-pearls are much more gentle than most physical exfoliator. Sometimes physical exfoliators hurt, this one was very gentle. This scrub is perfect for people that like a physical exfoliator because you also get the benefits of a chemical exfoliator as well.

1 star–If you don’t like a lot of steps this product is combining your cleanser step and exfoliating step.

1 star–price -$6.99. That’s a price point that’s hard to beat for a cleanser or exfoliator and you are getting both for that price.

1 star for scent. This has a very light scent so if you are sensitive this is a good non overly scented option for you.

Healthy Dinner option – Mexican Zucchini Buffalo Boats

Last week, I tried an amazing new recipe from  “Making Thyme for Health”.  If you are looking for a healthy meal but want to feel like it’s not healthy this is a flavorful and filling recipe That won’t disappoint.  It’s called Mexican Zucchini Burrito Boats.

Here’s what my finished Zucchini Boats looked like:

I loved that the boats were cooked to perfection. The corn, black beans, cheese and salsa made it almost feel like it was a cheat meal.  Seriously, it was that good. It was also good as leftovers.

 

Here’s what mine looked like when I was making it:

 

New Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup

IMG_1316 (2)

I have recently tried the New Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup.  Many of you have heard or tried Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation.  The original Double Wear is a holy grail formula for MANY people.  This new version is a bit different not only in the packaging but in the product as well.

What I love about the new Estee Lauder Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick Radiant Makeup:

  • Portability factor.  This could easily be dropped in your handbag, gym bag or over night bag.
  • Simplicity.  Because the cushion is built into the packaging of this foundation you don’t need a brush.  It is Makeup + Pro Tool in One.
  • 8 hour wear. Who has time to touch up their foundation mid day?  This will last the entire workday.
  • Hydrating. This is a very comfortable, natural formula.

Here’s my personal feedback from trying this foundation for a few days.  I was concerned that too much product would come out of the cushion.  It was very easy to control the exact amount.  I also was apprehensive that the cushion would provide smooth, streak-free application.  I actually was prepared to buff the foundation with a brush after application.  I looked closely in my lit, magnified mirror(Superhuman) and NO STREAKS!  This little cushion provided perfect application.  I also learned it is a buildable coverage.  If you want to look natural you can.  If you want more coverage just build.  The finish was very natural not matte.  I LOVE THIS FORMULA.  I also love the packaging!

 

What’s the difference between the original and this new formula??

COVERAGE: Original is Medium/ Buildable, New formula is Sheer- Med/Buildable

LONG-WEAR:  Original 15 hours, New formula 8 hours

FINISH: Original is Semi -Matte, New formula is Radiant

 

Both are great formulas.  I will keep both in my foundation drawer for different occasions.

 

Would I buy it again?  YES

Would I recommend it?  YES

Trouble Sleeping? This works.

I was sent #Zzzquil to test one night.  According to my fitbit I typically am restless 30+ times a night and I get up on average 1-2 times a night.

The night I tested Zzzquil I don’t think I moved.  I woke up not feeling drowsy.  Typically, during mid day I start yawning.  NOT the day I tested Zzzquil.  Was it a coincidence?  I don’t know.  All I know is I slept all night, soundly.  Very abnormal for me.

 

If you have trouble sleeping, I challenge you to try this option.

Aren’t they beautiful?

 

Here are the names of the shades:

Which shade ads is your favorite?

 

I do feel the packaging is lighter and less luxurious feeling than I thought it would be. If you can find one to buy though you should buy it.

This will be available in store for a limited time!

Free product for reviewing? It’s true!

I joined Influenster(my link  www.influenster.com/r/1537835) earlier this year. I’ve received 3 boxes of products to review.

My first box was 3 Full sized L’Oreal Skincare.

The second box was a YSL color corrector.

The third was 2 SKII products. (I love their essence by the way).

 

So so that prompted me to look around at what other companies are looking for reviewers. I love to share my opinions anyway. Sounds like a match made in heaven.

 

So so here is what I’ve found(I have only signed up and not yet received boxes to review.  I can update this as that changes.)

House Party is a little different than the others. They actually want you to share via a house party as well as online. I find this a super fun concept.   Click here for House Party: https://t.co/DbQ8L5Zb7K

Are there others I haven’t found yet?  This is so exciting. I love to try new product. I love to share my opinion.

 

The tip is to fill out the surveys so they know which products would be best for you. Sometimes they want you to write stuff it’s to see how you will write.

They say go on the sites everyday so they feel you will be active after they send you products.

SKII- Facial Treatment Essence

SKII is not a brand I discuss here often but it is a great brand.  Perhaps you would be surprised to know a few facts about the brand.

SKII has been in business since 1970 and was created by Japanese scientists looking for natural ingredients. They found that the sake brewery workers had normally aging faces but their hands were wrinkled free.  What did they determine was the cause of the “fountain of youth”?  The answer fermented yeast.

 

Here is a great product to try from the brand:  Facial Treatment Essence

Facial Treatment Essence

Here are some facts from the brand website:

SK-II’s signature product, the much-loved and most awarded bestseller, Facial Treatment Essence, has over 90% Pitera. Pitera is a clear liquid rich in vitamins, amino acids, minerals and organic acids. It’s the miracle ingredient discovered over 35 years ago that remains essentially unchanged till today.

SK-II Facial Treatment Essence helps to improve the appearance of 5 dimensions of beautiful, crystal clear skin: spots are less visible, appearance of wrinkles is reduced, skin texture is more refined, firmness is improved, and radiance is beautifully elevated. Its irreplaceable formula gently exfoliates the face and helps moderate the skin surface renewal cycle.

  • Replenishes skin’s moisture to help prevent skin dryness
  • Helps smoothen skin surface texture for soft & smooth skin
  • Helps moderate skin’s renewal cycle
  • Penetrates better than a cream

For many years I have spoken about the profound effect that this ‘miracle water’ has had on my skin… Having used SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for 15 years I can confidently say it has not only transformed my complexion, but quite possibly changed the destiny of my skin as well.  – Award Winning Actress Cate Blanchett

Texture:

This pure and lightweight miracle water is quickly absorbed into the skin.
