Sano Naturals Serum Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C Combine for the Best Anti Wrinkle Anti Aging Beauty Skin Care

I use anti-wrinkle, anti-aging products all the time, so was happy to receive the Sano Naturals Hyaluronic Acid with Vitamin C Serum.

Most of my serums are this combination, and I have to say that I get compliments as to the softness, look of moisture, in my skin.  Alas nothing improves my wrinkles, but this product does help me to keep my wrinkles getting worse.  I have been using these product for the past 10 years, and honestly feel that they do a good job.

If you start earlier enough, I truly believe that it will work for you.  I, of course left it too late in life.  It probably wasn’t around when I first needed it.

I use it in the mornings, after washing my face, and before putting an anti-wrinkle moisturizer on.  You can do individual drops, as it is thicker than most.  Love that you don’t waste any.  It is a pearl color.  It goes into the skin really well, and I love the delicate fragrance of it.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

Our Hyaluronic Acid offers the following benefits:
Moisturizes your skin and keeps it hydrated all day long.
Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks and sun damaged spots.
Evens out the skin tone by softening blemishes, discoloration and scars to reveal a more creamier complexion.
Will leave your skin feeling softer, smoother and silky.
Will leave your skin looking brighter, more radiant and younger.
It will even help your makeup glide on smoother, though after using our serum you won’t need to wear any!
Chemists and dermatologists are using hyaluronic acid in unprecedented ways to make skin dewier, firmer, and a whole lot more awesome.’

I did receive mine for free, and am always honest in my reviews.  I update my reviews is anything changes, while using it.

Aprilis 20% Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid & Vit E, Organic Anti-Aging & Anti-Wrinkle Facial Serum, Dark Circle, Fine Line & Sun Damage Corrector, Restore & Boost Collagen.

I am a true believer that you need to take care of your skin, as the sun, wind, etc., will dry it out.  That is why I received the Aprilis 20% Vitamin C Serum with Hyaluronic Acid.

The 1 ounce bottle comes with a dropper, and is in a dark brown bottle to protect the product.  I like that it isn’t too runny, and that you can get a single drop at a time.  This doesn’t always happen with beauty products.

I am 70 so have lines/wrinkles, and dark spots.  My skin is really soft, and hydrated, as I do take care of it.  I am using this product in the mornings, after cleansing my face, and using a toner.  It is easy to apply, and then I dab it, so that my skin absorbs it.  Once it is dry I use an anti-aging moisturizer.

I have ladies coming up to me, in the gym, and saying that my face looks full of moisture.  I suggest that they do a similar regime.

A little about the product from the Amazon page:                                                           ‘Benefits

1. Improves your skin by making it firmer and more youthful.
2. Helps prevent premature aging and wrinkles.
3. Fades dark spots and brightens your skin.
4. Makes your sunscreen more effective and boosts your skin’s defense against UV exposure.

Ingredients
Magnesium L-Ascorbyl-2-Phosphate, Deionized Water, Ferulic Acid, Carnosine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Barbados Aloe Juice, Butylene Glycol, Chrysanthellum Indicum Extract, Hydrolyzed Rice Protein, Vitamin E Acetate, Algae Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Centella Asiatica Extract, Caffeine Extract Cyclosystem Complex, Ceramides, Hydroxyacetophenone.’

I like that added bonus of it to help me against sun damage, considering I live in Florida, but I still need to use sunscreen too.

I will update this review at a later date, when I can determine how it is working for me.

I did receive the Vitamin C Serum at a discounted price, and have been honest with you.

Does caffeine make you sick?

20180311_163314I used to drink pots of coffee when we had our restaurant.  Every time our servers walked pass they would top up my coffee mug.

I had no choice but to give it up, when I had a bone density test, and found out that I only had 47% bone in my left hip.  They were hips of a 90 year old.

I had to give up caffeine, very little alcohol, take calcium supplements, and do weight bearing exercises.

It took me 18 years to reverse my osteoporosis, and now my range is ‘normal’ for a 70 year old.  I am loving it.

I go to Starbucks most weeks, and the baristas know that I have a Venti brewed decaf with caramel.  I rarely go on a Saturday, but was waiting for my husband’s meeting to finish at the F.O.E., which is pretty much next-door.

I placed my order, and the place was jamming as a parade was going on downtown.  The lady asked if a pour over was okay, and I said that was what they always do.

Around 6 minutes later my drink was called.  I was there for an hour, so drank the whole large coffee.  I then picked up my husband, and as he is diabetic, and went somewhere to eat.  I was starting to shake, and thought it might be that I needed to eat.  Well that didn’t work, because I started feeling worse while eating, and driving home.

My stomach was upset, I had diarrhea, and a headache.  Immediately I knew it was the coffee.  It had caffeine in it.  When I checked my free refill, the decaf hadn’t been checked off.  It was too late to do anything apart from spend the rest of the day, and evening on the toilet, and recliner.

I did email Starbucks, and ask them to ensure that they always make decaf when asked for.  Many times I have seen people trying to give me regular coffee, as no decaf is made.  When I catch it I always tell them that they will make me sick.  When it is handed to me, I always double check that it is decaf.

Thank goodness I am fine now.  Has this happened to anyone else?

Miserwe Womens Electric Razor with Carrying Bag Mini IPX4 Waterproof Electric Razor for Women Rechargeable Professional Bikini Trimmer for Arm Underarm Bikini Line and Legs

When I go on vacation I tend to take a throw away razor, rather than a regular size one.  Now I have the Miserwe Womens Electric Razor Mini IPX4 I can get a perfect shave without taking up much room.

It comes with a USB charger that fits into the bottom of the razor.  Also a carrying bag, a brush, and User Manual.

The razor comes fully charged.  I first tried it on my legs, and it gave me a close shave.  The underarms were easy.   When it came to the bikini area, it is so slim, that it was extremely easy to use, and get into difficult areas.

All in all, this is a really good product.

A little from the Amazon page:

‘Ladyshaver with 3 in 1 flexible trimmer system, allows you to remove unwanted hairs, more safely and quickly, easily and comfortably.

Soft touch switch, convenient and comfortable.
Using universal global Micro-USB, you can charge your epilator anyplace and anytime.
When this electric lady shaver is full of electricity, or running, or charging, its LED light will indicate different light.
Wet & dry use for maximum convenience. Easy for clean.

User tip: Hold the epilator handle at a 90 degree angle for the most efficient hair removal treatment. Lady Shaver/epilator cleans quickly and easily under warm running water.’

I was fortunate to receive this ladies razor for free, but feel it is a perfect product for anyone that travels, or only has a tiny bathroom.

Strawberry Halo E-Z Seal Re-Seal Reusable Peva Storage Bag kit (5 Pack) ideal for Food snacks, Lunch sandwiches, Make-up, Stationery, Travel Storage, Home organisation and more

I use so many Ziplock bags, which end up getting thrown away, as they are single use.  When I saw the Strawberry Halo E-Z Seal re-seal reusable Peva Storage Bags, I thought ‘Great’ less landfill.

They are see through, and come in 2 handy sizes.  There are 2 of the Snack bag 8.5″ x 4.75″, and 3 of the Lunch bag is 8.5″ x 7.25″.  They have an excellent thick seal to them, which doesn’t leak.

I have tried them with water, just as an experiment, and no leakage.  Then with food.  You can see the leftover hot dogs, in one of my photos.  They are also great for the office, keep desks tidy, and everything together.  Ladies, all of your

travel makeup would fit in either size, depending on how much you take.

There are so many other uses for them, and I am sure that everyone can come up with different ones.

They are food grade quality, BPA free, are freezer safe, and travel friendly.  They are completely airtight.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

  • ‘Leak-proof lock seals in freshness and is perfect for Make-up, Make-up Brushes, Food storage, Baby Pacifiers, Stationery and much more…
  • Capable of holding liquid without spillage Pack of 5 reusable zip seal bags (3 lunch size, 2 snack size)-the perfect solution for plastic bag waste
  • Freezer safe and hand washable Made of FDA-grade PEVA material (which is also PVC, BPA and Lead free)’

I am loving using them, and thinking about getting more, as the savings of not buying throw away bags, would pay for them  over time.  I did receive mine at a discounted price, but feel that these are a great value product at $17.99, with Amazon Prime.

GURUN Tabletop LED Lighted Makeup Mirror with 7x Magnification, 8.5-Inch,Double-Sided, Chrome Finish M2208D (8.5in,7x)

There is only two words I can use for the GURUN Tabletop LED Lighted Makeup Mirror with 7 x Magnification, quality product.

Yes, I do realize that this is an expensive LED Lighted Makeup Mirror, but the money has been put into the product.  It weighs 4 lbs., which means that when using it, the mirror will not budge.  The dimensions are 12.6 x 7.3 x 16.8 inches, so it is a big, strong mirror.  It has a chrome finish, which adds to it’s beauty.

On one side it is an LED lighted mirror with 1 x, and the other side is the 7 x  magnification mirror.  As you can see in my photos, it lights up really well. The mirror can be turned over, so you don’t have to move it around.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

  • ‘Made of high quality BRASS: Rustless, anticorrosive and durable
  • Double sided mirror in 2 magnification setting: 1x & 7x that is suitable for any task
  • The light mimics the true lighting of the outdoors so that your makeup looks flawless when you step outside!
  • Compared to mirrors with incandescent bulbs, Led won’t get hot with prolonged use and saving energy
  • Stylish Chrome Finished

My husband wanted the last mirror I reviewed, in his bathroom, so this one will now be in mine.  I did receive it at a discounted price, and have really tested it well, before writing my review.

No more trips to the barber’s, when you have the  Ceenwes Electric Razor, 5 in 1 Grooming Kit,that includes hair clippers, nose trimmer, beard trimmer, electric shaver, lettering knife.

My husband was in awe of this Electric Razor/Shaver.  This kit has everything you would need, not just for the man in your life, but also for women, and children that need a hair trim.

I cut both my husband’s and my hair, so couldn’t wait to try it.  He doesn’t have a lot on top, but thick curly hair around his neck.  I used the hair trimmer, with a comb on the end of it, so that I wouldn’t take too much hair off.  It worked great.  I then shaved the ‘fluff’ off of his neck.

He used the shaver on his face, and has been using it these last few days.  As with any new shaver, it does take awhile to get used to the contour of your face, and each day he is getting a closer shave.

Anti Cellulite Treatment Massage Oil – 100% Natural Ingredients – Penetrates Skin 6X Deeper Than Cellulite Cream – Targets Unwanted Fat Tissues & Improves Skin Firmness – Brooklyn Botany – 8.8 OZ

However much I exercise, I still have some cellulite on my thighs,  and stomach.  That is why I wanted to try the Brooklyn Botany Anti Cellulite Treatment Massage Oil.

I love that it is all natural, and states that it penetrates the skin 6 times deeper than my cellulite cream, which

I have been using.

The ingredients is on the label of the bottle, and one that I really like: Lemon Oil, Grapefruit Oil, Eucalyptus Oil, and Grapeseed Oil.  As stated above, all natural.

I have tried to remember to use it immediately after my shower, as it absorbs quicker on damp skin, but if not, I just use a wash cloth, and go over the area that I want it to work on.

A little about the ingredients:

‘Grape Seed Oil – has astringent qualities in it. It is regenerating, moisturizing, and skin tightening.

– Eucalyptus – effectively affects fat deposits that lie just under the skin (subcutaneous fat). It has anti-inflammatory properties and it soothes painful cellulite sensations.

– Lemon (Citrus Limon) – is stimulating for the circulatory system and improves microcirculation, strengthens vascular tissues, it is used for treating varicose veins by improving circulation and relieving pressure on the veins

– Grapefruit – is a diuretic and lymph tonic, one of the best. It is irreplaceable in the treatment of cellulite, water retention, and fat reduction.’

Using a lotion/cream I have already got rid of cellulite on my bottom, so will continue using this liquid form, and update the review, if I see improvement in other areas.

I did receive this product as a discount, and think that it is a perfect product for me personally.

Creme Dingenue Frankincense Essential Oil Natural – Therapeutic Aromatherapy Grade Oils | USE as a Sleep Aid, heals cuts, aging skin, eczema, and inflammation.

I am always buying essential oils, as I love them in my diffusers, and also for my body butter/moisturizer.

The Crème Dingenue is a new brand to me, and seems just as good as all the other brands I use.  It is a big 4 ounce brown bottle, with a screw top for storage, and a dropper.

I needed to make more moisturizer for my body, so got out Shea butter, a carrier oil, and had my Frankincense Essential Oil.  I put them all together in the large tub I use for mixing, and storing.  Then I used a butter knife to cut the Shea butter, finishing up with my fingers.  You can see the finished product, but I wish you could smell it.  This has to be my favorite fragrance.

I also put a few drops in my essential oil diffusers, which I have in every room in the house.  This relaxes me, and the house smells wonderful.

A little from the Amazon webpage:

‘There are many applications for frankincense essential oil. It has been used for thousands of years because of it’s natural healing qualities and it’s ability to relieve chronic stress and anxiety. Here at Crème Dingenue, we believe that pure and natural is the best. There are no fragrance or perfume additives as the healing qualities of frankincense are worth more than the price tag. Here are a couple of the areas that this oil can help you.

Natural Household Cleaner – because of it’s antiseptic properties, Frankincense can replace store bought cleaner. Add a few drops to a cloth and disinfect any area. It also has a pleasant balsamic slightly spicy and lemony odor.

Anti-Aging and Scar Tissue – Frankincense oil may help reduce the appearance of scars. Add it to an unscented base of lotion or hardened oil, like coconut oil, and massage it directly into your skin.

I did receive mine at a discounted price, and am using it on a daily basis, as you can see.
