InstaNatural Seaweed Mask


I love face masks with a passion so I was excited to try InstaNatural’s Seaweed mask.

I was surprised how LARGE of a container this comes in (1.5lbs). Which is awesome because not only can you use this for a facial mask you can use this for body wraps as well giving yourself a full spa like experience.

This is completely organic and 100 percent natural. Why seaweed? Seaweed powder contains a vitamin b12, E and Amino acids. These natural ingredients absorb impurities and cause your skin to be so soft!

If you follow the directions on the container for the seaweed wrap it can help reduce cellulite.

I used it as a mask, I added water to make a paste like consistency and applied it to my face until it dried.

I am not going to lie, it smells terrible, I mean it IS seaweed. If you add a drop off essential oil into your mixture it will offset the smell and make it more tolerable.

As a result of using this my skin felt very soft and smooth and my skin has an overall appearance of being brighter.

CanYouHandleBar Traditional Beard Oil


I was very interested in this product because my husband has a big bushy beard that he is rather proud of. It is very unruly like a wild mountain man.

CanYouHandleBar Traditional Beard Oil comes in small brown jar, you just need a little dab on your beard and it tames those stray beard strands to smooth it down.

Not only did his beard look more tame, it also made it very soft and silky.

The BEST part about this was the smell! It smells of lemon and cedar, it is very masculine and compliments his natural scent. I love it so much I bury my whole face into his beard just to whiff it. It definitely makes him more appealing and seductive to me. Nothing better than a man that smells good, but a beard that smells good too? Yes please!

So men I think you would love this to tame your beard, give it softness and lure the ladies!

It also promises to lighten your sun spots, boost natural collagen production and give your skin tone and over all brighter look.

During my skincare routine, I usually wash my face then apply the serum followed my favorite moisturizer. The serum is a light gel and has a pleasant scent.  It’s very light and glides easily over my face.

Erase by Luxurience


In previous blog posts, I have covered the importance of using moisturizers, serums, toners and sun blocks, but I have yet to go over while exfoliating is also an important factor of your skin care routine.

Getting older means we have to tend to our skin more, the process of skin cell regeneration slows down, which means our skin cells are shedding slower. The old skin cells can leave your skin looking dull, dry and rough. Exfoliating helps shed those old cells to reveal healthier, brighter skin. It also removes blackheads and helps fade acne scarring.

I was recently sent a great product to review called Erase Luxurience. This exfoliating scrub is non-greasy and contains tiny crystals to help gently buff away your dead skin cells, dry skin and clogged pores.

The smell is light and not overpowering, it has a fine texture so you don’t have to worry about it being over abrasive for sensitive skin.

I have used this twice a a week for the last month, and I’m seeing results already! I use it on damp skin and scrub in circular motions for 2 or 3 minutes.

My face started looking brighter immediately. The overly large pores on my nose seem to be shrinking and I can no longer see dry patches on my cheeks.

They also send a free sample of moisturizer when  you purchase this product!

I plan on continuing using this product, and I recommend it! You can find it HERE on Amazon.com

Dr. Song Teeth Whitening Kit


If you are looking for an affordable way to whiten your teeth at home you can try Dr. Song’s Teeth Whitening Kit.

This kit will be good for about 50 uses. The kit contains with Gel applicators, an LED light to help the whitening process and trays that are formable to your mouth and a brush to apply the teeth whitening solution.

The first thing I had to do was boil the trays so I could mold them to the shape of my mouth, it took a couple of tries to get it just right. This was probably the biggest pain of the process but unless you are going to a dentist to have it done professionally there is no way around it.

When applying it make sure it stays away from your gums because it could whiten them and cause irritation. I’ts recommended to only whiten the front teeth that you can see when you smile. Once you get the process down it gets easier, but the taste isn’t the best. You can keep the solution on anywhere from 15 minutes to 4 hours. I kept mine on about 30 to 45 minutes. The LED light will help enhance the whitening process.

I still need to use this a few more times before I can tell you how effective it is but I am super excited to see the results!

If you have sensitive teeth you can also purchase their remineralzation kit that you use afterwards, it will help desensitize your teeth, restore minerals and help strengthen your enamel.

Dr Song 50% Lactic Acid Gel Peel -Professional Grade

My first thoughts on this product? I was intrigued… skeptical.. and a little scared I was going to burn my face off.

Dr. Songs Lactic Acid peel is designed to basically burn layers of skin off your face (it’s safe if used properly don’t worry) Your skin will gradually start peeling, as if you had a sun burn but without all the sun and with just a little sting. Once those layers peel off, it reveals fresh, smooth, soft baby like skin. You dark spots are lightened, your melasma has faded and your fine line and wrinkles have faded.

dr song

You need to follow the instructions very carefully (which you have to look up online, I thought that was kind of strange) This is not like getting a chemical peel from the doctor, your face wont look like hamburger afterwards, don’t worry. This is used once a month for gradual results.

So here is my personal experience…I thought, what the hell, let’s try this and see if I can get professional results from home.

It comes in a small vial with a dropper attached. I took the dropper and just dabbed it right on my face, not knowing what to expect. OMG I got it too close to my eyes! lol It burned, I washed it off with cold water and it immediately neutralized the burning sensation.

Let’s try this again shall we…. I grabbed one of my foundation brushes and used it to gently wipe the product over my face, this time there was minial burn. The instructions stated to leave one for ONLY ONE MINUTE, and add an extra minute the next tie you do it a month later. So I literally counted the seconds because it started to sting a little more every second. One minute passed and I jumped up, rinsed off my face. My face was slightly red, the stinging was gone as soon as I washed it off. My face felt soo soft. So I wondered if that was it, just a soft face?

About 12 hours later I noticed the skin around my nose started to look bumpy. That was actually the part of my face that stung the most, my skin is always very sensitive,flaky and red in that area.

The next day, the area around my nose was very bumpy, not to be gross, but It was like a flesh colored scab. I was worried, I thought I had chemically burned my face.

I resisted the urge to pick it and after about 2 days it started shedding. Eww, I know… It came off and underneath that was fresh new skin, without any of the flake that I used to have. The redness had faded to a light pink.

I was IMPRESSED.  This stuff actually works, and I can’t wait till my second round to see what other results I can achieve.
