My Thoughts

I love shopping at Target for beauty supplies. Target has a great variety and a lot of popular brands. I shop at Target at least once a week and every time I am there,  I like to visit the beauty section :) My needs are always met when it comes to makeup/creams. I'll be picking up some more of derma e on my next shopping trip!

This eye lift helps smooth away crow's feet. I can feel a little bit of a lift around my eyes almost immediately after application. I can see the results, too! This hydrating cream is white. It did not leave my skin feeling  greasy. Once applied, it sunk right into my skin. I could feel a little bit of stiffness around the eye area. Which tells me that the product is doing what it is meant to do! I love this eye lift. I recommend it!

Try something new this year and #NOTICETHELOTUS at Target – derma e has arrived!

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit and 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit Review & Giveaway!

Hey Beauties! I know that is has been forever since I've posted a blog post on my beauty blog. I have been contemplating whether or not to combine my two blogs. Well, anyways, today I share with you two AWESOME kits for your brows! Did you know that your eyebrows are one of the most important features on your face? They are also the most neglected. Billion Dollar Brows has created two awesome kits to help you give your brows some much needed love. Achieve perfectly sculpted brows every time with Billion Dollar Brows' Best Sellers Kit or their 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit. All without breaking the bank!

The Best Sellers Kit comes with:

Universal Brow Pencil: Formulated to work beautifully with most skin tones and hair colors. The amazing eyebrow pencil goes smooth and naturally. The Universal Brow Pencil is automatic! It will never need a sharpening and it comes with a spoolie brush on the opposite end. Perfect for blending and achieving a flawless finish.

Brow Duo Pencil: Highlight your brow bone to add beautiful definition and warmth while providing an instant "lift." The highlighter works with every skin tone. Need a touch up on the go? Billion Dollar Brows has added a handy universal concealer on the opposite end of the pencil.

Brow Gel: This clear brow gel locks in your look. Giving your eyebrows a long-lasting, radiant glow. All while keeping them perfectly in place ALL day!

Smudge Brush: This flat, synthetic brush is the ideal mate for applying creamy cosmetics like the Brow Duo Pencil.

The 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit comes with:

Brow Powder in Taupe and a Brow Brush.

My Thoughts

I am not one who normally does her brows when applying makeup. I have to agree that they are neglected. I absolutely LOVE both of these kits. I was a little afraid to use the Best Sellers Kit because of all of the pieces. I have probably only done my brows once or twice (don't laugh at me). But, after I watched the How To video on Billion Dollar Brows' website,  I said to myself, this will be easy as pie. And that it was. I was done doing one of my brows in under two minutes.

I like the 60 Seconds to Beautiful Brows Kit for quick touch-ups when I am on the go. The Taupe color matches my brows perfectly. The brush makes it easy to apply and the powder applies easily. The spoolie end brushes my brows out and makes them look perfect! Using the brow pencil versus the brow powder, the pencil color was somewhat darker.

It's nice that the color of the pencil will match basically any hair color. Whether your blond or brown, this pencil will make your brows look great! I recommend both of these kits!

Asana Beauty's Facial Moisturizer Review

Hey Beauties! Today on the blog, I talk about Asana Beauty's Facial Moisturizer. This facial moisturizer helps with wrinkles, anti-aging, dry skin and dark spots. It contains Shea, Green Tea, Jojoba and B5. This moisturizer is made in the USA. Asana Beauty does not source from China. The moisturizer comes in a large, 4 oz. container. This container will last you a while!

My Thoughts

This facial moisturizer is okay. On my face it seems a bit too heavy. It absorbs nicely, it just doesn't feel right for my skin. I do experience a little bit of oiliness on my face. Which tends to make my face break out. The moisturizer is white in color. There is only a little bit of a scent to it.

Although this product did not work for me, it does not mean that it will not work for you. We are all different :)

Oz Naturals SPF 30 Sunscreen and The BEST Eye Gel Review

Hey Beauties! Today, I share with you two awesome products from Oz Naturals! Oz Naturals SPF 30 Sunscreen and Eye Gel! These are two perfect products for every day use.

Oz Naturals SPF 30 Sunscreen is the best anti-aging sunscreen. It's perfect for all skin types because its non-irritating and free of parabens. This Zinc Oxide Sunscreen is guaranteed to keep your skin from aging. The sunscreen can be applied every day to the face & body and can be worn under your makeup. Contains only all natural ingredients.

Oz Naturals The BEST Eye Gel is great for diminishing dark circles, crows feet and wrinkles. The eye gel can be applied daily to the area around the eyes. The algae extract that is in the eye gel nourishes, protects and hydrates with vitamins and minerals. The eye gel also contains Carrot Root Extract which acts as an anti-inflammatory, reduces wrinkles, scarring and stretch marks. Contains only all natural ingredients.

My Thoughts

This sunscreen moisturizes and nourishes the skin while protecting it from the suns yucky rays. The sunscreen is weightless. I can barely feel it on my skin. It's non greasy and it absorbs quickly into my skin. It makes me feel more confident when going out in the sun because I know its protected. A little bit of this sunscreen goes a long way. So the bottle will last you a while. Apply it daily to protect your skin. It's great to get in the habit of applying a sunscreen daily. Oz Naturals is my go-to!

The eye gel feels so nice when its on. It goes on smoothly and makes my dark circles lighter. I have been using this eye gel for about a month now an I feel like my wrinkles are "filled in" and smoothed out. The gel dries almost instantly and does not have a sticky feeling to it. The gel has very little scent to it. I recommend this eye gel for reducing puffiness around the eyes, wrinkles and dark circles.

I recommend these two products!

Body Merry Products Review

Welcome! Happy Monday! Today, I share with you three awesome products from Body Merry. Here is have their Day-to-Night Eye Gel, Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream and Stretch Marks & Scars Defense Cream. Read below to learn more!

Body Merry offers Natural and Organic Products to their consumers for reasonable prices. They offer Eyelash and Eyebrow Serums, Toners, Moisturizers and Face Washes. As well as the three products that I am reviewing :)

Body Merry's Cellulite Defense Gel-Cream is for diminishing dimples and bumps. The cellulite defense gel has a little bit of an effervescent as well as a cooling feeling. My legs felt cold and tingly for about ten minutes after applying. I noticed that my legs have less dimpling after one week of use.

Body Merry's Stretch Marks & Scars Defense Cream helps diminish scars and other marks. I love this Stretch Mark Cream and I have been applying it daily to my problem areas. I have yet to see a big difference. But, my skin is much smoother and feels hydrated. And, I like the smell of this cream.

Body Merry's Day-to-Night Eye Gel is great for diminishing dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles and those yucky bags under your eyes.  The gel is not sticky. It goes on smooth and makes the skin under my eyes feel tighter. Making my bags diminish. I have noticed less darkness under my eyes. I don't have a lot of wrinkles around my eyes yet, so, I cant say whether or not the gel works for wrinkles.
All three of Body Merry's products are great. I love the fact that they work. It's also great knowing that if I order more products from them, I won't break the bank. Not only do the products work, but they are affordable.

RevivHair Review

Happy Weekend, loves! Today, I share with you my review for RevivSerums!

RevivSerums is a leave-in serum that can help significantly boost your hair's thickness, fullness, natural color, strength and overall health. It's perfect for both men and women. RevivSerums contains all-natural ingredients including Redensyl, Stem Cells, Peptides and Growth Factors.

RevivHair, is a once-daily application, about one to two droppers. The RevivHair 60 mL bottle should last between 37 to 75 days since a full dropper dispenses 0.8 mL. The measurement does not need to be exact, and it's recommended that you apply enough serum for good coverage. For some, this might mean using more product than the instructions specify.

The serum is fragrance free and is clear. It is safe for all hair colors and hair types.

Instructions for use:

Shake well before use. Apply once daily to wet or dry hair. Use one to two full droppers. Part your hair and apply serum  directly to your scalp that are thinning. Massage into scalp with fingertips. Wash hand thoroughly. Since hair growing cycles can take at least 1 to 4 months, it may take a while to notice beneficial effects.

My Thoughts

Although I have not noticed any new hair growth yet, I have noticed less shedding. My hair has been shedding terrible due to child birth. After using RevivSerums, the shedding has calmed down tremendously. The serum, when applied to my scalp, is not heavy feeling. It does not weigh down my hair. The Serum is easy to apply. I have not had any trouble with irritation or redness on my scalp. I recommend this product.
