Vitamin C Lotion - Foxbrim {Review}

Foxbrim presents their Vitamin C Lotion to us which is another beauty product gem that should not disappoint its users. First lets take a look at their product claims:

  1. Antioxidant protection
  2. Lightening sunspots
  3. Reduction in wrinkle formation
  4. Strengthen skin elasticity
  5. Help even skin tone
Next is a list of its main ingredients:
  • Organic Herbal Infusion
  • Organic Aloe Vera
  • Palm Oil
  • MSM
  • Vitamin C
  • Shea Butter
  • Vitamin B5
  • Jojoba Oil
This product does not state that it is an all natural product but the ingredients do not seem to include any sulphates or parabens. This lotion is mainly for face application but can also stand in for an all over body moisturizer which is great. I myself have never attempted to use my face moisturizer as a body lotion so I will not try that ability. However, using this face lotion is great. It is not greasy and does not irritate my sensitive combination skin. I use this lotion only on mornings because my night routine is different. I cleanse face and apply toner & serum, once that has been absorbed I apply this moisturizer. My face does not get dry throughout the day which is good because I am not one to reapply anything at any point in the day. This 1.7oz bottle can last long depending on how much you use and usually these products do not require more than a short squeeze. Overall you will be satisfied with this product and with continued use you will see improvements in your skin.

Natural Refresh Toner by Foxbrim - Review

Toners are a great to use in your daily beauty routine to cleanse, tone and prep your face. Foxbrim creates a toner with a witch hazel base in the ingredients which is great for daily skin care.

The ingredients include:

  • Witch hazel
  • Vitamin C
  • Aloe Vera
  • Yucca
  • Sage
  • Pomegranate
  • Kelp
  • Cranberry
This toner is all natural and alcohol free which is great because alcohol dries up my skin so much. Once I cleanse (wash) my face on a morning, apply my serum then spray the toner and lastly my moisturizer. This toner has aided in preventing the creation of new acne on my face which is always plus. I can not say that this little bottle is a must have for all because we all do not have the same issues. I stopped using make up because it broke my skin out crazy regardless of the type I used and I absolutely hated the layers. With adding the toner to my regimen, I am able to apply a bit of bronzer without any issues. This may not be true for many but it is true for me and I will continue using this toner in my morning routine whether or not I apply makeup. Witch hazel helps tighten pores and reduce inflammation and aloe vera hydrates skin. Free from any parabens or additives, this toner is a must for those you want to add a great product to their daily beauty routine. Available on Amazon.

This book was a really fun read for my kids ages 2 & 5. Their night time routine always end with a book being read either by myself or by my 5 year old son. This book is fun for all kids of all ages especially those between 2 & 6 years old.

Abigail visits her grandparents from time to time and is always evry happy to visit them. She thinks about the adventures she goes on when she uses the magical bike that her grandpa invented. As soon as she gets the chance she would run upstairs to the attic to start her adventure. The adventure starts when she says the magical words and voila she is soaring over a vast and wide sandy desert. She meets up with a girl same age as she is who is fetching water by realizes there is none. Abigail is able to help using her bike which everyone is grateful for. She says her magical words when she is ready to return home and waves goodbye.

Your kids are going to learn about the desert and being kind and helpful to others. The kids will ask you questions while reading the book and with the many illustrations it helps them imagine the story as you go along. This is my favorite book from author Tali Carmi and can not wait to read others. Get it on Amazon.

Body Merry's Stretch Mark & Scars Defense Cream {Review}

Body Merry introduces their Stretch Mark & Scars Defense Cream which include array of organic ingredients. These ingredients include an organic herbal mix, organic aloe vera leaf juice, organic cocoa butter, organic castor oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil and more. It also has vitamin E, vitamin B3 and B5 and vitamin C which helps to visibly reduce the appearance of stretch marks. The combination of these plant oils and vitamins in this cream is hydrating and moisturizing to the touch.

This cream is thick and smooths on easily on the affected area and actually has a rather pleasant scent. It is to be used twice daily for maximum results and rubbed into skin until completely absorbed. Body Merry products are free from harsh chemicals such as parabens and sulphates and like others this cream is free from them also.

This 4oz jar can last depending on how much that is used and how large the affected area is. You will see improvement in your skin within the first 2 weeks of use (at least that is how it worked for me).

Body Merry's Retinol Surge Moisturizer

Body Merry presents their Retinol Surge Moisturizer that I have been using for a little while now because I just like it. Made using ingredients such as organic aloe vera, sunflower oil, derived hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil makes this moisturizer great.

Retinol has been proven over the years to be very effective in the prevention and reduction of wrinkles. This moisturizer is light weight although the texture is rather thick. You need only to use less than a dime for your entire face and neck. If you have normal to oily skin this can be used both day and night. If you have more sensitive skin limit your use to either once day or night or even every other night.

The combination of the ingredients give your face a fresh and radiant look. I use this product only during the morning hours after cleansing, applying toner and serum. My face remains smooth through out the day and I have no issues with irritation as retinol can be a little bit of an issue for first time users. Another plus that I love for this moisturizer is that it is free from parabens, sulphates and is not tested on animals.

Terry Treetop & the Lost Egg is a fun with a mini adventure ebook for kids. The book features a boy named Terry who loves climbing trees and have been given a nickname Terry Treetop because of that. In this book Terry goes camping with his family and finds an egg while spying in the grass.He begins his quest of finding who the egg belongs too. The book helps kids learn about the outdoors and animals such as turtles,alligators, frogs and more and how they take care of their unborn. The author (Tali Carmi) also rhymes the entire story which makes it even more fun for the kids to read. After reading it to my son, he was able to tell me more about the animals and their habitat and also not to give up when you want to do something. Terry Treetop remains patient through out the search to locate the owner of the egg and was very excited when he helped the egg get back home. Your kid is going to love this book and it also filled with lots of pictures (which kids love) to help their imagination run wild. This book is great for Grade 1 beginner readers and up although it states Pre-K students I believe it is a bit too advanced for them.

Right now on this book is free for the kindle version.

MakeUp Kits by ONE DIRECTION (Review)

One Direction has definitely stepped up the in the beauty world with these ingenious makeup kits that are absolutely amazing. If you didnt know, One Direction have started their own makeup line and introduces a range of lip glosses, mascaras and nail varnishes. The cool thing about these in particular is that they glow under UV light. So imagine your lips, lashes and nails popping while in the club and those UV lights are on. It blew my mind to try these and talk about an upgrade to your make up. So lets talk about each kit individually.

The Nail Varnish -- Comes with 3 different colors and 3 glitter toppings. ROCK ME NAIL KIT featuring NEON UV-REACTIVE Nail Varnish and UV-REACTIVE GLITTER nail toppings. Sprinkle the glitter over wet polish for a subtle accent, or go for the glitz and dip your entire wet mani in mega-watt sparkle! 

3 Nail Varnish:
Happily– UV iced blue glitter 
Moments- UV neon pink 
Diana- UV 3D holographic 

3 Glitter Toppings: 
Kicks- UV snow cone blue
Not afraid- UV electrified pink glitter 
Star-- UV holo glitter 

My nails looked extra special after using those and for someone like me who loves nail polish it went on smooth and lasted over a week. 

Next we have the mascara kit which comes with 3 colors and it is called the ELECTRO GLAM MASCARA. 

Why don’t we go there- Shock of blue
Does he know?- Pinkest hot pink 
Story of my life- Amped canary yellow 

They can be added to either your hair using about 3 coats (on my hair cause it is dark brown) and on the tip of your lashes and of course the more you add the better it looks. Go for it. It is bold and vibrant and gives that extra spunk that is sometimes needed to feel outgoing

Last is the Lip Gloss kit with 3 different colors that will make your lips go from 0-OMG really quick. 
LIQUILIGHTS GLOW GLOSS is absolutely brilliant whether during the day or night when it illuminates under UV black light after dark. Infused with natural oils and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night. Wear it alone or top it over your lipstick for the eccentric look.
Through the Dark- Electric glitter poppy lip gloss that glows to neon red-orange under UV light 
Kiss You- Orange glitter rush lip gloss that glows to neon yellow under UV light 
Taken - Powerhouse glitter pink lip gloss that glows to neon orange under UV light

Wearing Left to Right: Through the dark, Kiss You & Taken
