Cellulite Defense Gel by BODY MERRY {Review}


Cellulite Defense Gel Cream by Body Merry is not the first cellulite cream I have tried and this may just be my last. I enjoyed using it and will continue to use it. I am a pretty tiny girl or what you could call Thim Slick (Slim Thick - as used in urban context). I do have cellulite and no I do not like it nor do I like to see it. After having my second kid I realized that it is all over my thighs, butt and yes even my tummy.

This cellulite cream contains active ingredients combined with Retinol, Caffeine, & Seaweed, along with naturally potent ingredients such as Algae, Kelp, Coconut Oil, Cayenne & Green Tea Extract. It is from harsh chemicals such as parabens and sulphates.

This cellulite cream is thick and has a beige/cream color and comes in a 4 fl. oz jar. Depending on how often and how much you use will determine how long it last and most times a little does go a long way. I have targeted my use to only my thighs, butt and tummy. From before application you will notice it has a strong minty smell which I enjoy because I love the smell of mint and find it to be invigorating. As soon as it is applied you can feel the icy hot sensation working to get rid of the fat under the skin causing the cellulite. It also absorbs into the skin quick enough and does not remain greasy or leave any residue. Daily use would be required to see results.   

Body Merry believes in their product but also offers 90 day money back guarantee if you do not feel like this product is working for you. 90 days is more than enough time to see results.

My KONJAC Sponge - {Review}



I do not think I have ever started a blog post like this but I LOOOVVVEEEE THIS KONJAC SPONGE!! This is not an understatement. Let us get the facts about this sponge:

  • 100% Natural Sponge
  • 100% Coloring & Additive Free
  • 100% Biodegradable
  • Naturally Sustainable
I have used Konjac sponges in the past and they were good, nothing that I could complain about but this sponge was unique. On the packaging this is what it also claims:

  • Gently Exfoliates
  • Cleanses Pores
  • Prevents Acnes & Pimples

OK now to my experience. This sponge is so easy to use. Soak for about 1 minute to soften the sponge (do not ever use hard) and gently massage in a circular motion then rinse after use. This sponge is made from the konjac plant root and natural bamboo charcoal and contains activated carbon and minerals. I use this sponge every night as a part of my night time face routine and it makes it so easy to exfoliate and cleanse skin. The feel after use is amazing. One of the things that I love also about it is that it does not shed like the others that I have used in the past. Anytime that my face is oily, it gently removes the oils and greats a smooth and healthy finish and look. With its natural antioxidants that fight acne, I am confident that it will continue in preventing acne. 
  • Cruelty Free
  • Vegan
Additional information that makes me love this sponge even more. You can get it on Amazon.

InstaNatural always have delivered quality products that I have tried and expected no less from this Argan Oil Hair Mask. Argan Oil has now been deemed the secret to achieving the best hair as research proves its properties very successful. For me, growing up I had not heard about argan oil but knew of the benefits that coconut oil has when applied to the hair and ofcourse skin. InstaNatural has been able to derive a hair mask that has many key ingredients to help in treating and improving your hair.

Key Ingredients:
Argan Oil
Amino Acid Complex
Coconut Oil
Shea Butter
Vitamin B5

All these ingredients when used together can treat and transform damaged hair and turn it into healthy strands.

This argan oil hair mask is smooth for easy application and has a pleasant scent from all the organic & natural ingredients. This mask is mainly used as a deep conditioner once or twice weekly for 5 - 15 minutes to be able to achieve best results.  It can also be used daily as your standard conditioner to help protect against heat damage and external agitators.

I expected high standards from this InstaNatural argan oil hair mask and received that. Immediately after use, your hair feels soft, looks shinier and with lots of life. Definitely a new beauty product that I would recommend.

Almost Perfect - E-Book Review


Mystery, Light Thriller, Suspense
362 pages
Author: Orly Krauss-Winer

I have never been really big on thriller books, I mainly read romance novels with a little bit of not of this world experiences. I took a while before I started the book because after reading the prelude it did not pull me in as much as I would like. But once I started I was glued to my subway sit for every ride, twice almost missing my stops.

The book introduces you to 3 women (Alona, Tamar & Nilli) that are best friends who work as lawyers at a prestige law firm. In comes Lior, an attractive, people pleaser who "looks" like he is absolutely perfect. Alona, who is married falls deep in love with him but was not willing to leave her husband/family for him. He moves on to Tamar who now believes that he can not do any wrong in her eyes. But before they are able to create their perfect union, he is murdered. Oh the agony you may think. This is where I believe the title "Almost Perfect" draws you in. This novel brings in so many characters that are all intertwined and deceived by the ones they love.

As the story unravels, the victim or victims may just be turning out to be the suspects or so we think. The author (Orly Krauss-Winer) invites you into their lives and while reading you feel like you are there, riding along every event whether it is in the now or in the past. The story then comes to life so amazingly when you think you have solved the mystery it takes a nose drive, and have you questioning the why, who and when. I give this book two thumbs up from beginning to end and it will keep you entertained and in suspense.

Get it from Amazon today.

SKIN QR: NuElle - Triple Action Anti Cellulite Firming Concentrate



This organic cellulite firming lotion is the first I have tried in its kind. Being that I am a small girl I do have cellulite in my thigh and butt area and for no one no matter size would attest to liking this. This 5oz bottle of NuElle Triple Action Anti Cellulite Firming Concentrate was used as my lotion day and night to make sure I can receive maximum results. Just by looking at the ingredients, there are so many great oils that are ofcourse amazing for your skin, such as:

  • Aloe
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Geranium essential Oil
  • Rosehip Oil
  • Evening Primrose Oil
There are many other oils and ingredients that were interesting because I have never really noticed them in lotions. Some examples are caffeine, ginkgo biloba, kelp, cinnamon and cayenne. After reading some more, it did say that it has a diuretic effect and it works both on the surface and in depth. It contains 25 flub busters and caffeine being one that assist in weight loss and cellulite reduction. 

Once I started using it, I first noticed the scent which was pleasant and reminded me of wintergreen mixed with lemon grass. Very intriguing. The texture was a bit lighter than other regular lotions which did not make it greasy but very absorbent. It has not replaced my moisturizing lotion but I have opted to use it solely on certain areas such as my thighs, butt and stomach. I have seen very minimal changes along my thigh area and these changes are for the better. My thigh area is smoother in the feel and slightly looks less uneven. I think with continuous use there may be even more improvemnt. It is sold on their website and on amazon.

EXFOLIMATE - A New Way To Exfoliate Your Skin



I have used several products to help maintain my skin but never have I tried a tool designed for exfoliation. It was pretty intriguing to see how it works and if it actually do work. It comes in a box with 2 tools one for the face or small areas and one for the body or larger areas along with the easy steps pamphlet and straps for easy holding. Upon looking at this tool, it is rather simple in shape and technique. The triangular shape makes it easier to get into crevices and to hold on to. It has a metal edge that feels smooth but has micro laser grooves to be able to push out every all dirt and oil particles.



These can be used daily to cleanse, refresh and revive your skin. It makes a huge difference without the added need for chemicals. You actually feel and see the dirt being lifted off your face. After using any cleanser, I passed the exfolimate over my face and then looked at it to see the extra dirt and oil it picked up. Just by adding this to your routine (about a minute per day) there can be significant improvement in texture, tone, reduction in pore size plus improved skin absorption.

You can see a full video at www.exfolimate.com. It is safe for all skin types and also improves blood circulation.

Definitely a thumbs up in innovation to better skin.
