New Beauty Product Reviews, Products for Dry Skin!

dry skin, skin type

is by far the absolute worst skin type to have.

Some days, I question if I evolved from a reptile. My skin can get so dry, it’s almost unbearable. As if dry skin wasn’t enough of a curse, add EXTREMELY sensitive skin to the mix. If you use the wrong skin products, that’s legitimately a recipe for ……….

DISASTER!!

so, I decided to try these organic products.

Yes to cucumbers, cooling, soothing facial toner mist for ultimate rehydration, a soft bristled exfoliating brush, and yes to cucumbers cleansing makeup remover towelettes.

I don’t know what it is about regular makeup removing wipes, but they heavily irritate my skin. They burn, and make my under eyes feel raw. It’s very frustrating when I’m removing my mascara and eyeliner, and I happen to be a little over dramatic. Bite me. (not really) But I’m seriously in AGONY every time I have to remove my mascara and eyeliner.

yes to cucumbers hypo allergenic makeup removing wipes;

I’m not quite sure how I feel about them to be honest with you. I literally rushed home from target and SO EXCITED to remove my makeup! (when does that ever happen?! .. like never) So I opened the package, and they weren’t very wet. Infact they were actually more on the dry side. They didn’t remove my makeup either. I have to do more testing of these to come to a final conclusion. I’m not impressed with them, and I definitely would not repurchase in the future. It barely even smells like cucumbers for crying out loud!

Ok…FIRST OFF….. this thing needs to come with a warning label. When it says “Mist” I’m thinking more along the lines of a tropical mist sweeping up against my face in the middle of the tropics on a warm sunny day… I wasn’t expecting a mist that would be equivalent to a fireman’s hose trying to extinguish a fire from a  burning building… That really caught me off guard. That’s one of those moments where I hit myself in the head and wished I had that on video! Why didn’t I video blog this!?

ANYWAYS LESS HUMOUR AND BACK TO THE REVIEW PART…

This stuff Is like God’s gift to his children he cursed with dry skin! It felt so refreshing and my skin literally soaked the mist right up! It can be a little sticky, if you use too much of it. I applied the toner, and let it dry, and my makeup went on smoothly after that! I also did some experimenting with it and it works great as a setting spray one your makeup is applied! and it makes your foundation look glowing! I give this product 2 thumbs up!

LIKE WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?!? ♥♥ I definitely recommend you try the “yes to cucumbers” toner mist! I love it!

What do you guys think?! Has anyone tried these products and what were your thoughts and impressions?!

Product Review for Elba Naturals CoQ10 Creme

IMG_20150907_142551♥♥ eLBA NATURALS

CoQ10 Crème

  • -Anti-Aging
  • -Moisturizer
  • -Diminishes Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • -Vitamin and antioxidant based, to promote cell growth and restoration.

♥ I would like to thank elba naturals, for sending me their CoQ10 Crème as a complimentary gift, in exchange for my opinion and review on their product. I am 100% honest in all of my reviews, and I do not recommend products, I myself would not use, or do not like. I appreciate all of my viewers, and followers, and I want to recommend only the best of the best for them! With that being said, Let’s start my review!

IMG_20150907_142729What the product ingredients are and what the product is suppose to do;

As advertised on the label, CoQ10 crème contains a vitamin-like substance present in the human body. It is crucial for cell function because it produces energy needed for cells to grow and strengthen. CoQ10 also serves as a powerful antioxidant that defends against changes to the collagen and elastin in particular.

What it really does; I have been using this product for about 3 days. The product says it is able to be used all over the face and neck, in the morning as well as night. I do not recommend doing that. I will go more into detail about why, later in this article. As I applied to my face, It DID help, even out my skin tone, as some certain areas tend to be a little off colored. I DID notice a significant in the firmness and tightness of my skin. The product contains an anti-aging agent and ingredient called Hyaluronic Acid. What is Hyaluronic Acid?!  Hyaluronic acid is a naturally produced carbohydrate in the human body. It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin.

There is also a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth.” However, there is no evidence to support the claim that applying it to the skin can prevent changes associated with aging. So It all boils down to personal preference and skin type.

Side effects that I Experienced

  • Increased Dryness
  • Excessive skin peeling.
  • Tight skin (+)
  • Firmness (+)
  • Even skin tone (+)
hyaluronic acid is a form of exfoliation, along with other vitamins and essential oils this product contains.

Dryness and peeling that I am experiencing, from this product is not necessarily a negative characteristic. I am an esthetician, and studied the function of the skin. The dryness and peeling occurs because, you are removing dead skin cells. Peeling is a symptom and sign of cellular regrowth. You shed a layer of skin, for a newer healthier layer.

my overall opinion on the product and recommendation for the public, as well as the company;

This product is a good product, if you are using it for an Anti-Aging treatment, and a way to exfoliate your skin. I don’t recommend using this as a moisturizer. I do not recommend this for people who have sensitive skin. The product is great for people who have an Oily Skin Type, as it will help prevent and slow down the excess  of oil produced by your skin. Do not use more then 3x a week. Use as a means to exfoliate your skin and remove patches of dead skin. I have an overall positive opinion of Elba Naturals CoQ10 Crème. The crème has great benefits if used as an exfoliator. A few things that can be improved, in my opinion, is the display of the product. The product packaging needs to be more flashy and commercial for optimal sales and interest with the public. Disclose on your website, or on the product label that peeling may occur, and explain that peeling skin is a normal process during a cellular growth stage. Many people who purchase products do not have the knowledge of an esthetician, nor do they know what happens during cellular growth. Be more specific.

over all, +++++
