Today I am going to reviewing these Lumify Redness Reliever Eye Drops that I received from Pinchme complimentary in exchange for my honest opinions. These eye drops claim to brighten, whiten, and reduce the redness of your eyes without the use of bleach or dyes. I chronically overuse my contacts and despite my best efforts I often wake up with red, irritated eyes. These eye drops have drastically improved the redness in my eyes. My eyes are whiter and Once the drops are applied it’s recommended not to put your contacts in until 10 minutes after. I usually wait between 5 to 10 minutes and find that to be a sufficient time to wait without having my eyes feel irritated. I have consistently only had to use one drop in each eye and it relieves red eyes for up to 8 hours. Thus far I have noticed that one drop in each eye sufficiently lasts all day. Check out my before and after pictures. Overall, this works really well and has helped with my red eyes. I rate it 5.0/5.0
Today I will be reviewing 5 liquid matte lipglosses that I received complimentary from Aliver in exchange for my honest opinions. Firstly, this set comes with 5 different colors including from a pink based nude, a dark magenta, a medium dark purple, a metallic ruby red, and a dark chocolate brown. I love the variety of this set as it has two colors I think would be suitable for day use (pink based nude and the magnets) and three colors that are more adventurous and suitable for night wear (metallic ruby red, chocolate brown, and the medium purple). While these are described to be matte lipglosses I would say a more accurate description would be liquid matte lipsticks as they fully pigmented and dry down to a matte lipstick texture. All of the lipsticks have great, even pigmentation. The lipsticks take a minute or two to dry down and can be sticky when drying down but once they have dried down I do not find them sticky and they last through eating and drinking with minimal touch ups needed. I don’t find these to dry out my lips despite having a matte finish but if you do tend to have drier lips to begin with you can moisturize your lips with a lip balm beforehand. Overall, I highly recommend these matte liquid lipsticks as they are beautiful, long-lasting, and affordable. 5.0/5.0
Today I will be reviewing a new lash serum from [user:lorealmakeup] that I received complimentary from influenster I. in exchange for my honest opinions. I have always been lucky and blessed to have long, dark lashes but I was excited to receive an invitation to try this serum because I’ve noticed some lash loss lately. This serum contains glycerin, pro-vitamin B5, hyaluronic acid, madecassoside, arginine to help condition and care for your lashes. L’Oréal claims that this serum will help your lash fringe appear denser and thicker after using this serum 2x’s a day for four weeks. What I like about this particular serum is that it has been tested by ophthalmologists and deemed suitable for contact lens wearers and individuals with sensitive eyes, both of which apply to me. I can say that this serum did not bother my sensitive eyes even when wearing my contacts. This serum comes in an easy to use twist up brush topped applicator. I love the bright green and silver colors they used for the packaging. The serum is easy to use and quick to apply. All you do is twist the bottom of the applicator and brush the serum across your lash line. I started using this serum about 4 weeks ago and since then have noticed less lash loss. I have also noticed my lashes appear conditioned and shinier since I began using this serum. I have a picture of before I started using this serum and after and so don’t see much of a difference in how much fuller my lashes appear but I myself see a difference in less lash loss and want to continue to use this serum until finishing the tube and then report the final results to see if there is a noticeable difference in density of lashes. Stay tuned for a final update of this product and so far I rate it a 4.0/5.0. #lorealparismakeup #lorealparis #lashserumsolution #longlashes #fulllashes #thicklashes #lashesfordays #featheredlashes #lashes #lashserum #darklashes #glycerin #hyaluronicacid #beautytester #beautyreview #producttester #productreviewer #latinabeauty
I’m not a fan of Campbell’s normal condensed soup but I am so glad I tried this new Well Yes brand! I love that this can contained 13 grams of protein for one can of soup. The turkey meatballs were nicely seasoned and like the healthier choice of protein and has no antibiotics in it (turkey is lean and not fatty). The northern beans and kale were a nice healthy addition that add protein and fiber to the meal. The broth was tasty just needed a touch of salt but I like being able to add my own salt anyways. The broth to content ratio was pretty good. Compared to most canned soups this one has a nice amount of dietary fiber (4g in the whole can). I also like that this soup had no artificial flavors or colors. Overall, this is delicious, healthier take on canned soup that tastes pretty good and is infinitely better than Campbell’s condensed soup.
Today I am going to be reviewing [user:klairs.global] Soft Airy UV Spf 50+ broad spectrum sunscreen essence. I received it from [user:0.8l_usa] at the reduced price of 3.99 in exchange for my honest opinions. Spoiler alert! This sun essence is my new holy grail facial sunscreen! This sunscreen is advertised to feel soft and weightless on skin and yet still protect you from UVA and UVB rays. This sunscreen feels amazing on my oily/combination skin. It leaves it feeling lightly hydrated and soft with feeling heavy or sticky. What I love about this sunscreen is that I can’t feel this sunscreen on my skin once it has been absorbed making it ideal to wear underneath makeup application. Additionally, this sunscreen is advertised to be invisible, leave no white cast or flash back, and have no greasy texture or film left on your skin. I have worn this sunscreen underneath makeup several times and when I have taken picture found no white cast of flash back. I have also never felt my skin become greasy from wearing it. This sunscreen is an opaque white essence with a water based gel texture. A great feature about this sunscreen is that it doesn’t pill and I haven’t noticed any increase in acne since using it. Overall I rate it 5.0/5.0 as it vastly exceeded my expectations and it will be replacing my previous facial sunscreens. #wishtrend #klairs #airyuvessence #klairssoftairyuvessence #softairyuvessence #airyeveryday #sunprotector #spf50PA++++ #staycomfybesafe #wishtrendstory #08liter #08L #skincare #sunscreen #kbeauty #kbeautyskincare #producttester #productreview #productreviewer #beautytester #latinabeauty #Wishtrend #Klairs #AiryUVEssence #KlairsSoftAiryUVEssence #SoftAiryUVEssence #AiryEveryday #sunprotector #SPF50PA++++ #StayComfyBeSafe #WishtrendStory #08liter #08L
Today I’m going to be reviewing a new plant based protein product from Gardein that I received complimentary in exchange for my honest opinions. I must admit that I am a not a full-time vegetarian or vegan but my boyfriend and I working hard to start supplementing our week with plant based protein and vegetarian meals to cut down our reliance on meat for protein. These tenders have 8 grams of protein per serving and the source of protein is made from a blend of soy, wheat, and vegetables. The breading is made from seven grains including kamut, what, amaranth, millet, and quinoa which is healthier than using breadcrumbs and becomes almost as crispy as breadcrumbs if you cook them in the oven or a toaster oven. These tenders are easy to cook, are vegan, kosher, and dairy free. These tenders contain vitamins and minerals not often found in real chicken based tenders. I chose to make a creamy mushroom pasta and used these tenders as a source of protein. It worked really well. The tenders weren’t overly salty and it tasted similar to regular chicken tenders. They are perfect for dunking in a sauce, making with pasta, serving over salad or adding to a wrap. I recommend these and will be purchasing more. I rate 4.0/5.0. #gardein #socialnature #gardenmeal #freshmeals #soyprotein #veganprotein #trynatural #vegan #kosher #chickentenders #ancientgrains #tasty #easymealprep #vegetarian #gotitfree #healthyfood #delicious #amateurchef #producttester #productreviewer #beautytester
Today I’m going to be reviewing a Korean natural toothpaste from 0.8l that I received for a trial price of 3.99 in exchange for my honest opinions. I was randomly given two of their three flavor choices to test including their garden tea party (shining care) and meadow breeze (gum care) flavors. The garden tea party toothpaste helps with having shinier teeth and is described to taste of chamomile mixed with lemon and lime extracts. The meadow breeze variety helps with caring for your gums and tastes like sage and green tea. I personally prefer the meadow breeze flavor because it tastes closer to a refreshing traditional mint taste found in standard toothpaste; however, the garden tea party is nice as well. The packaging is luxurious and beautiful featuring a marble print box/tube with a shiny gold screw on cap for each tube. These toothpastes are natural ingredient based and formulated to have less fluoride that your typical toothpaste. Additionally, it is paraben, sls saccharin, surfactant, peg, mineral oils, and triclosan-free. Both toothpastes resemble white Vaseline paste and feels smooth without grit. These toothpastes do not foam and bubble and it didn’t bother me but it did take some getting used to. I did notice that in order for my mouth to feel clean and refreshed I had to use more toothpaste than my traditional toothpaste. I also noticed that my mouth didn’t feel as clean as when I use traditional toothpaste. Additionally, the clean feeling and fresh breath don’t last as long as they do with traditional toothpaste. I also notice the cost is $15 per tube of toothpaste which is pretty steep. Overall this was a nice natural toothpaste; however, it has a steep price and isn’t as effective in creating a lasting clean and refreshed mouth. #alacris #premiumnaturaltoothpaste #alacristoothpaste #toothpaste #naturaltoothpaste #naturalingredients #premiumtoothpaste #10toxinfree #toothcare #amazon #08l #08liter
Today I am going to be reviewing another sheet mask from [user:thecremeshop] that I recently wore to hydrate my skin prior to my flight to North Carolina. I saw some of the creme shop’s character masks at my local #CVS and decided to try the gudetama seasons glow sheet mask. The key ingredients in this sheet mask are lemon (brightening and oil control), egg whites (shrinks pores), and green tea (nourishing hydration). The sheet mask itself is plain (no gudetama print sadly) and made of a soft cotton material and adheres to skin well although the fit is a little big on me. The sheet mask itself has a refreshing scent of lemon that is uplifting without being overwhelming for my sensitive nose. The sheet mask comes dripping in clear, semi-thick essence. I experienced an energizing and pleasant tingling sensation as I wore the mask for fifteen minutes, as instructed, and then took it off and patted the rest of the essence in. My oily skin absorbed the essence after a few minutes without leaving a sticky residue behind. The sheet mask left my skin with a healthy glow and some medium hydration. I didn’t notice a difference in my pores but that could be because it has been a little chilly in Miami and my pores haven’t looked as big as they normally do. I definitely recommend this mask for hydration, oil control, and brightening. Rate 4.0/5.0.
I recently was given a chance to try the lemon blueberry variety of the Purely Elizabeth Oat Cups complimentary in exchange for my honest opinions. I love how healthy this oatmeal was and the texture of it came out great especially since I’m not a huge fan of instant oatmeal because of the shredded cardboard texture it normally has. I picked out the lemon blueberry flavor and was disappointed by the lack of blueberry flavor. It was visually stunning to see the bright blue color of the oatmeal however I expected more blueberry flavor. The hint of lemon was nice. Overall I think the oatmeal needs a touch more sugar as I think it will bring out the flavors of the lemon and blueberry even more than without it. The granola texture was great but the flavor didn’t jive well with the lemon and blueberry. I’m looking forward to trying their raspberry flavor.
