Hyaluronic Acid with Lilac Stem Cells Serum

Out of all the skin care products on the market devised to keep our skin from aging prematurely hyaluronic acid is one that I haven’t really heard much about until recently. According to Natures Tools USA, their Hyaluronic Acid with Lilac Stem Cells Serum does everything a women needs in a skin care product. It’s supposed to remove fine lines and wrinkles thanks to the collagen stimulation, it reduces blackheads, shrinks your pores and helps get rid of blemished left behind by acne. The company also says that this product keeps the skin hydrated and moisturized. Those are all some pretty big claims from just one serum that’s being sold for less than $25. 

 Even with a bit of skepticism I decided to give this product a try anyway. Luckily my skin is the type that isn’t very sensitive to products and something will either work well or do absolutely nothing, but it won’t make my skin worse or cause me to break out. I used the product as directed: I washed my face with my cleanser and exfoliator, added the serum to my face and neck and just waited. My skin didn’t feel heavy or tight which I liked and I didn’t feel a burning sensation. 

After two weeks of use I did notice that some blemishes were starting to fade and my skin was looking a bit better without having to use my tinted moisturizer so I was relay happy about that. One thing I know that’s for sure is that I’ll keep using it because I need all the help I can get if I want to keep wrinkles at bay!

Microbiome Plus Probiotic Giveaway

As I’ve mentioned on this blog before, I’m not a massive fan of taking supplements because sometimes I don’t feel it’s worth what they can do to my stomach as well as other random side effects that can pop up.

I’ve reviewed products by Microbiome before and the main takeaway from this and the previous product is that my sensitive stomach isn’t affected by them. I don’t have issues with my blood pressure or cholesterol so I can’t attest to how this works for that. I do however like that it has probiotics because everyone can benefit from making sure their insides are nice and balanced.

This Microbiome Plus Heart Probiotic package came with a 1 month supply, separated into weekly boxes and you’re asked to take one pill with two of your daily meals. This isn’t a bad deal for someone that’s into taking probiotics and is tired of eating yogurt in order to keep their digestive system on point. You can grab the one month supply at Amazon or, you can get one for free courtesy of Microbiome Plus + by entered the giveaway below:

Swiss Botany Vitamin C Serum & Moroccan Oil Giveaway

I'm a huge fan of serums and oils as part of a great skin or hair care regiment because they're usually natural ways to help achieve what we're looking for. In this care Swiss Botany's Vitamin C Serum is great for the skin and their Moroccan Pure Argan Oil, while advertised for all over use, is one of my new go-to haircare products. 

I've been using (and promoting) Vitamin C for skin care because of it's use as an antioxidant. It's a great product if you want to clear your skin of toxins and helps slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles which we all want, right? 

What I like about Swiss Botany's serum is the consistency. It's not too thick or thin and really seems to seep into the skin and gets to work. Added to my skin care regiment my skin is just as smooth and healthy as before and I can go a day or two without using my fancy scrubber and I still feel like my skin is perfect.

Moroccan Oil has been in my life since I went to Manchester, England in 2011 and was desperate to get my hair done. After calling tons of places to see if they knew how to deal with my specific type of hair I found a great spot where the stylist used Moroccan Oil to give me a healthy shine, defrizz my hair and gave me a nice bouncy look without having to kill my hair with heat. Not that I'm not a fan of heat but if it's done wrong it can be hell! On my own I like to use this oil when I'm drying my hair because it seems to give it a great sheen without looking or feeling greasy after. Then I apply some on the following days when I do touch ups with the flat iron but I'm careful not to use too much to avoid weighing my hair down.

So as promised...another fun giveaway! If you want em both just enter below and if you're lucky they're all yours!

So let me know how you plan on making the best of these two products and they're all yours!

Lifeguard + Battery Charger

Here goes. We've all been there right? We spend an entire day outdoors, taking pics, videos, checking into places, updating our instagram feed and suddenly it's getting late and your battery is at the dreaded 20%!

It's a nightmare for me, especially because I started using Spotify on my iPhone pretty much nonstop while I'm commuting so I'm glad I was able to get this +Lifeguard Plus Portable Charger to give my phone some juice on the go.

What I really like about it is that it charges really fast, is really slim, and it brings my phone from 20% up to at least 60 within 30 minutes. This is all while using it. I haven't tried to charge it without having apps opened because I'm addicted to my phone. There are a lot of portable chargers out there on Amazon but this one is a top contender. The price is right, there are multiple colors to choose from and it's an all around winner for me so far!

Portable Charging Stick

Here's another charging stick that I was given the pleasure of trying out a few weeks ago: Portable Chimps Charging Stick. Well no, not really. It arrived at the same time that my cousin surprised me from NYC and since she was driving around LA, taking pictures like a tourist, I gave her the stick to tell me if it would really do the job of keeping her iPhone charged.

The Answer was yes. Not only did she love how slim it was and the fact that it had a cute carrying pouch but she loved the speed in which it charged her phone. Once it hit 25% she plugged the Charger Stick in and was able to shoot video, take tons of pics, constantly update her social media accounts with her whereabouts.

There isn't tons to say about this aside from the fact that it didn't take long to get charged up and it didn't disappoint when it came to putting it to the test. I'm excited to give this one a try myself now that it's back in my possession! 

  • WHAT'S INCLUDED - 1 2600mAh ChargerSticks Lithium-ion external battery, 1 micro USB cable, an instruction manual, and includes a travel pouch for convenience. Simply use it with your phone's USB cable and you instantly have an external battery iPhone 5 charger, portable external battery for iPhone 4 as well as Droids and Samsung Galaxy all in this one tiny device. (Additional Apple adapters - 30 pin and Lightning- are NOT included)
  • TOP QUALITY, GUARANTEED - ChargerSticks are designed with quality

Fibolica Hair Thickening Fibers Review + Giveaway

I get a lot of products to review and run giveaways on and Fibolica's Hair Thickening Fibers was one of them. I've used thickening fibers before for my eyelashes but wasn't crazy about it because I didn't want anything that could easily irritate my contacts.

Now my hair isn't's actually the complete opposite and is at its thickest in the crown, so I decided to give this a try on my hairline to see if my baby hairs appeared thicker than normal.

The results were okay. I didn't need to use a lot of it because of the fact that I have thick hair as it is but I did like that it wasn't a messy product, didn't have a weird smell, and did give the illusion of thicker hair around the area that was always naturally sparse.

So if you want to give it a shot and have larger areas to cover Fibolica is letting one of my reader receive their own supply to check out. Leave a comment below and I'll pick someone a random on 3/12. You're welcome ;-)
