Revealed Truth About Your Skin and Skin Products!

purify your skin

FACT OR FICTION?

the skin care market:

has gained tremendous momentum and popularity among its peers in today’s modern era, as a result of advancements in the latest technology making it possible to develop and produce innovative products to deliver significant enhancements to the skin

the most common misconception

Many people are unaware of their misconception on what products actually do. It’s so important to not only have a daily skincare routine, but it’s crucial that you gain knowledge about skincare ingredients.

some think that it is ridiculous to spend hundreds of dollars on a skin care set

I really want you to think about this. Your skin is the body’s outer protective suit. Everything is absorbed through your skin and goes straight to your bloodstream. Your skin is your greatest asset.

PHE1753Normal cleansing products, from common retailers can advertise their product as “Natural and All Organic” but in many cases, that is the furthest thing from the truth. Many of the active ingredients in those products are not natural at all, they are ingredients grown inside a laboratory which are a synthetic, chemically modified substitute of a natural ingredient, which is designed to product similar qualities.

PREVENTING BLEMISHES, ACNE AND AGING

We cleanse our faces to remove impurities, treat and prevent blemishes and acne, and decrease or minimize acute signs of aging.

Popular Acne Products contain high levels of concentrated “Salicylic Acid” , and “Alcohol”. Other Ingredients may include, Hyaluronic Acid, Generic and synthetic Gylcol/Gylcolic Acid and Retinol.

What your really doing to your skin;

DRYIdryskinNG AND DAMAGING YOUR SKIN.

High concentrates of Salicylic Acid, and Alcohol, along with hydrogen peroxide is used to dry out the area infected, so inflammation will diminish faster, as well as reduce redness. You are not treating your skin.

you are putting a Band-Aid over a wound that needs stitches.

Blemishes and breakouts are internal, they develop inside of the skin, and move to the top layer. You may be experiencing “OK” results with your skin care now, however SKIN PURIFICATION is a different story.

When you use a skin purifying product, you need to keep this in mind

You need an entire set for optimal results that include
  • Cleansor
  • Toner
  • Spot Treatment (Optional but recommended)
  • moisturizer
  • SUNSCREEN!!!!
ONLY 10% OF FINE LINES, WRINKLES, DARK SPOTS, AND HYPER PIGMENTATION IS FROM THE NATURAL AGING PROCESS

90% IS FROM DAMAGING EFFECTS OF SUN EXPOSURE

A moisturizer hydrates and smooth’s your skin, sunscreen protects you from the suns harmful rays.

your skin has to get worse, before it can get better

I probably have you all confused now, but yes you read me correctly. Whenever you put anything directly on your skin, whether it’s lotion, or makeup, it is being stored within your pores. That is why some pores appear larger then others.

Our body has Sebaceous Glands that produce oil, and our skin has 3 layers. The Subcutaneous layer, where skin regrowth, takes place, the Dermis, And the outer layer called the Epidermis. Many times, Oil and dead skin cells will get trapped in the skins layers, which cause white or yellow discoloration, raised flat patches, uneven skintone, freckle like appearences, blackheads, white heads, and cystic acne.

When you purify your skin, you are riding your skin of chemical buildup, clogged pores, and oil trapped beneath the surface that is unable to make it’s way up. All Impurities are brought to the surface, allowing them to finally be able to be evacuated out of your skin. If you are not breaking out, or seeing blackheads and oil coming to the surface you are using the wrong product.

EQUITANCE BRIGHTENING SKIN COLLECTION

Equitance

I received Equitance’s brightening collection, and I have been using it to purify my skin. My skin has been lacking its luster, it felt dry, and looked dull. I am a mother to a rambunctious enthusiastic and energetic 5-year old boy filled with vitality, that never wants to sleep. I always tell people, I evolved from the raccoon ancestry, because my under eye circles were always horrid and dark. My skin did not have a youthful glow, it wasn’t vibrant, it made me feel like my skin was the equivalence to the appearance of dust on the top of an old bookshelf! …… and I’m only 24!

enough about me more about equitance!

Equitance is a luxury skin care line that have had many clinical trails, documentating and scientifically proving its benefits in anti-aging, blemish control, and hyper pigmentation removal. It is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Equitance uses the most advance technology and natural ingredients to deliver unremarkable results  that enhance and fix your skin’s appearance SIGNIFICANTLY.

The Powerful Ingredients in Equitance Formulas

Sourced from nature, each ingredient possesses unique powers that contribute to the brightening and revitalizing efficacy of Equitance Skin Care.

THE BRIGHTENERS

  • LINOLEIC ACID & VITAMIN C

appears in all topical Equitance formulas. It is extracted from safflower seed oil and purified. Further, we found that linoleic acid’s primary effect helps to significantly minimize the appearance of dark spots. It promotes the exfoliation of the stored melanin that form dark spots. Linoleic Acid alone possesses such power. We’ve patented a unique delivery system for linoleic acid that we exclusively use in two targeted Equitance formulas: Equitance Brightening Serum + Dark Spot Corrector and Equitance Hydrating Brightening Cream.

THE MOISTURIZERS

  • CHERRY BLOSSOM LEAF EXTRACT

is culled from the Japanese sakura tree and possesses properties that sooth and soften rough skin.

  • SHELL GINGER EXTRACT

is derived from the Japanese alpinia speciosa leaf. Its intense moisturizing properties help brighten the skin

  • GLYCOSYL TREHALOSE

is found in tapioca and potato starch. It helps sooth and moisturizes and improves tones.

  • Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate and Stearyl Glycyrrhetinate

made from licorice, possess soothing properties.

Betaine is made from sugar beets and possesses natural moisturizing factors that allow it to work within skin’s natural moisturizing process.

Acetyl Glucosamine is harvested from crab shells. It helps the production of hyaluronic acid, an intensely effective moisturizer.

Yogurt Extract is cultured from lactobacillus bulgaricus. It not only nourishes but supports skin recovery and brightening.

Shea Butter is ground from shea butter nuts. It creates a balanced moisture veil that protects skin from dryness and environmental stressors, such as pollution and the drying effects of environmental pollution.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH EQUITANCE

I absolutely love it! ♥ The cleanser is such a rich cream. I apply a dab and work it into my face when it is damp. It starts to foam up into a thick soothing lather that feels like velvet sweeping across my face. I never get blackheads (open comedones) the oil gets trapped deeply under my skin causing larger pores in some areas, as well as discoloration spots. I have been using all of equitance’s products in my daily skin care routine. It has brought all of the oils and toxins to the surface of my skin, so they can be expelled. My large pores are completely gone. My face has a luminous vibrant glow, and it gave life back to the appearance of my skin.

oh… THE MOISTURIZING CREAM…

I can only describe it with one word, it’s like no other other moisturizer I’ve experienced before!

UNPARALLELED.

Makeup Forever Eyeshadow

anyone can apply eye shadow…

The dilemma is; making your shadows seamlessly blend and intertwine for a mesmerizing jaw dropping look, is a little more tricky and time consuming then you initially thought.

SAM_0694 (3)My biggest downfall is my perfectionism. I was going to say obsessive compulsive, and that’s true to a certain extent, however it only applies to makeup!  When applying my makeup, if my shadow isn’t perfectly blended, or both eyes don’t match up, and my brow shadow is a quarter mm higher then the other eye… I CAN’T. (Grabs makeup removing wipes, removes makeup, starts all over) and winged eyeliner. OMG. seriously, I’m sure every girl obsessed with makeup has had one of those days where one wing is perfect and the other side won’t come out. I will sit in front of my mirror until I perfect it. Obsessive Compulsive, I swear!

SAM_0710 (3)They say home is where the heart is, so my home is located in the premises of my bathroom.. and the MAC store. Mac Cosmetics is my ultimate favorite brand, because of their consistency. You never have to question if a new product is going to be of good quality. I know when I purchase anything from Mac, I’m guaranteed to love it, and that’s a fact.  This post isn’t about Mac, so I will carry on.

Aside from Mac, my other favorite cosmetic company, specifically referring to eye shadow is,

MAKEUP FOREVER.

SAM_0716 (2)

one word to describe makeup forever’s artist shadows

unparalleled

Adjective;

having no parallel or equal; exceptional

Makeup Forever’s Artist Shadows consists of a long lasting, breakthrough gel-powder, with highly saturated, vibrant pigments. Blending your shadow with Makeup Forever’s products is effortless. The rich color, glides on, with optimal color, and the best thing is, it stays.In fact, it’s the only eye shadow that I don’t use a primer with, and if you have watched my Youtube Video’s, you are already aware that I am fanatical about primers! BeautyPlus_20150915220450_save

This is a swatch of my three artist colors, with no primer.

As you can see, the eye shadow is true to color, very bright, and shimmery! They have a variety of colors you can purchase, that range from vibrant neon colors to matte colors.

This is by far the most convenient eye shadow to apply,  it looks phenomenal and  ItSAM_0673 (2) blends so smoothly. I definitely recommend for you to try Makeup Forever’s Artist Eye shadows!

I am new to the eye shadows by makeup forever, I’m stepping out of my MAC bubble. I LOVE MAKEUP FOREVER!

No More Razor Bumps, Only Smooth Sexy Legs!


What are razor bumps?

the medical term for razor bumps, is  pseudofolliculitis barbae.

IMG_20150913_210038Razor Bumps and Ingrown Hairs are most commonly associated with popular hair removal procedures, such as shaving and waxing. Strands of your hair curl back on themselves and grow into the layers of skin causing irritation, inflammation, pimples, bacterial infections, and in severe cases, a lot of scarring. That doesn’t sound too delightful, now does it?

I have a confession…..

♥  it’s a little bit embarrassing, but I have to share this with you!

When I was attending college for esthetics, it was mandatory that us students, practice treatments on each other.  The school was poorly maintained, and not sympathetic to those who had sensitive skin. I never had sensitive skin, but now, my skin is so sensitive it’s pretty much a bio hazard if I use the wrong products!

waxing

If you are a fan of waxing, waxing over a period of time will actually damage your hair follicles. Some say that if you wax long enough your hair will not grow back. That is a myth and nothing is farther from the truth. That is FALSE. When students performed hair removal by waxing, on my skin, it was a nightmare. I had damage to my hair follicles, which caused improper hair growth. Long story short, I get horrible folliculitis, razor bumps and in grown hairs! Especially on my legs! It has been over 3 years since I’ve graduated, and I’m still suffering the consequences…. HOWEVER….

There is light at the end of the tunnel….

and no, it’s not a train!

KERAH LANE, sent me this product to test, and give a review. Mind you, I have been to a primary care physician, and dermatologist. Antibiotics, steroid creams, clindamycin wipes, glycolic wipes, you name it, I’ve tried, with no success… So I was highly skeptical of this product, almost doubtful. Here is a Before Photo, As you can see, I have bumps and visible red markings, from ingrown hairs, and razor bumps. My Legs were mild here. There times, and flare ups where I look like I rolled around on a bee hive, and I’m not over exaggerating or being melodramatic one bit!

C360_2015-09-11-08-51-03-864

DIRECTIONS;

After showering and shaving (or waxing), apply a generous amount of Kerah Lanes’s product all over the areas that you’ve removed hair. Be generous with it! Slather it all over!! Massage it into your skin for however long you’d like, and then rinse it off thoroughly. Repeat each time you use methods of removing your hair.

End result ; BeautyPlus_20150913130706_save

I’ve use this product for the past 2 days. Not only did clear all the razor bumps and ingrown hairs, it left my legs extremely smooth. It removed all dead skin I had left over on my legs. I didn’t even have to put lotion on after I rinsed the product off! The only downside it smells like after shave, not so much when you rinse it but when you first apply it. I think it would be great if it smelled like lavender or flowers, something a bit more feminine for ladies, but IT GETS THE JOB DONE!  Even if you don’t have razor burn, this is a great product to purchase if you want your skin extremely smooth and touchable! ♥

would I recommend this product to my viewers?

yes, most definitely! I liked it, and will continue to use it!

My Beauty Secret & Trick To Applying Eye Shadow

Hello my beauty fanactics! ♥ How is your day going? Today I’m making my blog post all about Eye Shadow, and blending techniques. I’m even going to let you in on my own  beauty trick & secret. SHHH! Don’t tell anyone!

what you need to know

Despite the ever so gorgeous and breathtaking eye shadow photo’s you’ve seen on the internet, keep in mind that they have been retouched, cropped and brightened. Don’t get discouraged and feel bad if your eye shadow doesn’t turn out like an exact replica of your example. ♥

Screenshot_2015-09-11-12-34-00In today’s post I am going to be vague on the topic of eye shadow brushes. If you are not familiar with eye shadow brushes, my apologies! I will be posting a blog all about brushes very soon! Anyways.. Here are my products today. I’m using a wet n wild palette because its very affordable, and easy to purchase, so if you would like to practice, or replicate the look In this blog, it will be easy to do so! Mac’s long lasting eyeliner; seriously this is the only liquid eyeliner that STAYS in place. Water and a cleanser won’t even remove it completely. You never have to worry about touching that baby up! Urban Decay’s Primer Potion; You don’t have to use Urban Decay, but It’s what I have found to work the best for me.

APPLY EYE SHADOW PRIMER ONLY TO YOUR EYELID.

When you are applying your primer, do not put it all over your eyes. Only on the eyelid, never on the brow bone and above. It will be very difficult for you to blend, and have contrast with your shadow if you put it all over.

use a concealer stick to outline.

This will help you with viewing where you are going to put your crease, and how far upwards you want to blend outwards.

MOST IMPORTANT STEP!

After you have primed your eyelids apply a flesh color eyeshadow for an all over base. I personally use Makeup Forever High High Definition Setting Powder. There is a reason for this! when you are applying a dark shade into your crease, you will have trouble blending your eye shadow, because the dark color will stick to the primer making it almost impossible to blend evenly. Always start from the end corner or your eye, with a crease brush and move forward in circular motion, this will blend the color and go from dark to light.

Screenshot_2015-09-12-19-09-02Using the HD powder prior to applying your eye shadow makes the color easily blend with one another rather than sticking to the primer itself. Using an HD powder will also give your eyeshadow a natural “airbrushed” look. That is the method that I prefer, It makes the shadow look more neat, and appealing. I also use a eyeliner precision tip brush, for my liquid eyeliner. If I am applying liquid eyeliner, I will apply my eyeshadow first, then my mascara and then the eyeliner. When applying liquid eyeliner, it tends to get on your lashes, and when you apply your mascara, your mascara will go on clumpy.

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.

IMG_20150908_095044

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!

yes to cucumbers hypo allergenic cooling soothing hydration toner mist

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!

♥ 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, +++++
