Healthy living with Zenwise Advanced Green Tea Extract
With my new diet that incorporates more fruits, veggies and an increased water intake, and now adding in this supplement,  I have noticed that this gives me quite a bit of energy, though it states that this is caffeine free.  I feel a lot more energy than I have, and not at all jittery.  I am still some time away from loosing any weight, but I feel better.  For the past month now I just feel better in the morning!  It is easier for me to get up and go and my energy and moods are more stable and level.  Cannot wait to get into the gym!

The pills are normal size and I found no issue with taking them down.  I also did not experience them getting stuck, as can happen with some pills.  There is no aftertaste once these are ingested and I LOVE that about this supplement!  On an empty stomach I felt no sour stomach.

Anavita Skincare Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream
Think that a cream that does not have phthalates, alcohols, parabens, sulfates or oils won't work?  Anavita Skincare brings us their Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream for Face + Neck + Body that is free of all of those ingredients, leaving you with potent cream that is safe and gentle to use on all areas of your body!

Anavita Moisturizer Anti-Wrinkle Cream
When you first use Anavita Anti-Wrinkle Cream, they advise you to let some time pass before starting this cream.  I find that letting your skin phase out of your previous skincare allows for better penetration of this cream and you can tie the results back to this product.  You can use this as your day cream, night cream, and it is gentle, yet powerful enough to be used not only on your face and decolletage, but also neck and body!  That is right!  You can use this everywhere!!!

Anavita Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Cream - texture
Anti-Wrinkle Cream has a heavy duty feel when you grab it out of the jar, but melts quickly and easily into the skin.  Afterwards you are left with light feeling, fresh skin.  I was amazed at how light this felt as I blended it onto my face.  Once fully absorbed, this leaves your skin with a delightfully matte look!  You can even use this as a makeup base!!!  Skin is super soft after and allows for a smooth, seamless makeup application.  When used under makeup, I did not find the cream to oxidize my foundation, or change the texture of any of the other makeup used on my face.  This did not make me greasy, especially on my combination/oily skin, and played well with my eye cream and toner.  There is a scent to this product, not perfume like at all, but dissipates quickly after application.

It has been 3 weeks into my including it into my regimen , and I love it most for a makeup base!  Though the awesome moisturization has been an added bonus.  It has also been a godsend for my decolletage area.  I have very fine lines around the outside of my eyes and I am waiting to see what my results will be at the 2 month mark.

As a thank you, Anavita would like to give you $5 off your purchase!!! Coupon Code: FEBBAC28

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum - review

*DISCLAIMER - Item sent by company for purposes of testing/review.  I am not being financially compensated for this review.  All words and opinions are 100% my own.*

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum
 Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Hyaluronic Acid and all natural and cruelty free?  Yes, all of this contained within this little bottle of Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum.  Inside the one fluid ounce bottle  you will find a lightweight serum that brightens, moisturizes and heals the skin!

Aside from Vitamins C & E, it comes packed with Hyaluronic Acid for ultimate moisturization.  What does this mean for you?  Here is the amazing list of studied results...
- increases the amount of collagen to bring back skin's natural elasticity and counteract fine lines and wrinkles
- powerful antioxidant properties neutralize free radicals to reverse damage caused by the sun, pollutants, and cigarette smoke
- protects your skin from UV damage such as age spots, discoloration, and fine lines
- improves skin texture to give you a smoother, brighter complexion
- combined with vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid for extra powerful antiaging effects

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum - Ingredients
Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum
This serum is lightweight and spreads easily on the skin and sinks in quickly.  It plays well with other facial products and did not leave a residue on my skin.  This does have a very herbally scent to it, which was a bit odd, it being a vitamin c serum, and those that are scented, tend to run on the citrusy side.  The scent is quite noticeable but wears down minutes after wear.  Super gentle, did not find any irritation anywhere on my skin, especially around the eye area.

Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum - texture
From the photo above, Amara Organics Vitamin C Serum is one of the lightest I have ever used!  This will be perfect in the summer when I want moisture, but none of the added heaviness that potent moisturizers usually have.

I am very pleased with how well this plays with my skin and my current routine.  Dries quickly so I can slap this on and go about my day!  I have a an overall glow that is really nice and just an all around softness that I attribute to the combination of vitamin C and hyaluronic acid.

Premium, Organic products from Pura d'or Hair and Body Care - review

*DISCLAIMER: Item(s) sent by company for purposes of review.  I am not being financially compensated for this post.  I am not affiliated with this company.  Words/opinions are 100% my own.*

Pura d'or Argan Oil products
The newest, natural additive to all super moistuzing products now seems to be Argan Oil!  Argan Oil is an amazing, natural, 100% cold pressed oil that is a heavy hitter when it comes to moisture and protection of the skin and hair.  They have added this to their organic Argan Oil line, which is also cruelty free, and USDA biobased certified.

Pura d'or's Argan Oil Premium Organic Shampoo is a hair loss prevention therapy product, used to add body, thickness and volume.  "This gentle formula is fortified with an organic blend of argan, B vitamin complex, Biotin, nettles extract, saw palmetto, He Shou Wu, and other clinically proven natural ingredients to aid against hair loss.  Biotin strengthens the hair strands, Niacin increases circulation, and our advanced blend of DHT blockers promotes healthy hair growth." - Pura d'or

Pura d'or Argan Oil Premium Organic Shampoo
At first use, the scent of this is extremely herbal.  Those who do not like that scent or are sensitive to strong scents may not like this shampoo as it is potent.  The shampoo itself is lightweight, but does not weigh hair down.  It washes cleanly.  It does suds up, but not overly so and rinses out nicely.  I did not experience any residue whatsoever.

The Lavender Vanilla scented Pura d'or Argan Oil Premium Organic Conditioner is a dream!  "Our naturally organic conditioner is made form 99% vegetable base ingredients.  It is free from sodium lauryl sulfate (sls), DEA, parabens, gluten. artificial colors, artificial fragrances and harsh preservatives." "Our base is derived from 99% coconut and vegetable proteins to hydrate, heal and repair damaged hair from root to end without adding weight or buildup.  This gentle formula is infused with organic argan oil to add shine, body and moisturizers to all types of hair from normal to fine, dry or damaged hair.  " - Pura d'or

Pura d'or argan oil premium organic conditioner
The scent of this conditioner is heaven sent!!!!!!!!!  Lavender Vanilla lends this conditioner a very calming, soothing, warm scent experience.  This conditioner is emollient and heavy on the hair, but rinses clean and leaves hair soft.  Scent does linger but fades after a day or so.  Gentle and did not leave any extra residue on my hair.

Using both of these together had my hair feeling really soft and manageable.  I was using less of my other products such as shine sprays, hair creams to weigh my hair down as it likes to fly around everywhere.  I am right now suffering from dry hair due to burns from a new styling tool, so I am looking forward to seeing how this will help repair my hair again.

Pura d'or Body, Hair and Face Treatment Oil
I am venturing into oils for hydration now as I feel them to be the best way of delivering intense moisture where you need them.  I also find them to be extremely healing. Pura d'or's offering is 100% cold pressed argan oil ready to use.  A great moisturizer on its own, it can be added to your favorite creams, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, facial products, anything! It is completely versatile and since it is gentle, can be used safely on the body.  Now that we are transitioning to warmer weather, I am looking forward to using this as I have before, legs, arms and feet for super hydrated looking and feeling skin!

#SleepOnIt with Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate - giveaway

#sleeponit Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate

About Super Retinol Concentrate:
"This unique antiaging nighttime transformer supercharges the proven power of Retinol with our patented NeoGlucosamine®, amplifying results while delivering a gradual, time-released infusion of pure Retinol in a microencapsulated form to maximize potency and tolerability of this high-strength formulation."

"Exuviance Super Retinol Concentrate takes Retinol to the next level for superior, visible lifting and firming results. 1% Retinol encapsulate helps firm skin while smoothing wrinkles and texture. Combined with our patented NeoGlucsamine®, clinically proven to enhance the volumizing and firming effects of Retinol, this treatment truly defies gravity."

"Widely recognized by dermatologists for its antiaging power, Retinol helps build natural collagen and its surrounding support matrix for plumping and firming benefits, reducing the look of deep-set wrinkles and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles from the inside out. Cell turnover is enhanced, revealing smoother skin texture and more even tone with less discoloration. Patented NeoGlucosamine® is clinically proven to work synergistically with Retinol, building skin's support matrix to increase skin firming and smoothing effects versus Retinol alone. As skin becomes firmer and new cells emerge, skin is transformed, younger looking. For an immediate visual boost, optical brighteners provide visual softening."

"Designed for maximum efficacy and stability, the formula contains a retinol-stabilizing complex and utilizes an opaque airless pump-top tube to maintain freshness. This light, serum-like formulation is fragrance free, Paraben free, and oil free." - Exuviance/Neostrata
