#Revitalift Challenge- L’Oreal Triple Power Moisturizer

Infleunster sent me L’oreal Revitalift triple power deep-acting moisturizer to take the Revitalift Challenge for 14 days. ( though Ive been now using it more than 14 days)

LorealRevitaliftFlower

It supposed to :

  • Repair wrinkles with hyaluronic acid
  • Re-firm skin with concentrated pro-xylane to firm & tighten skin
  • Redensify with concentrated pro-xylane to strengthen skin

See Dramatic Results:

  • Immediately: Skin is deeply hydrated. Complexion looks more radiant.
  • In 1 Week: Skin texture appears smoother.
  • In 4 Weeks: Skin elasticity is increased. Skin appears firmer. Skin looks younger.

I must say I don’t have an issue with wrinkles and my skin looks pretty healthy. For me, I didn’t really see any results.  Plus its hard to really tell because I moved to Florida and got a little tan. My skin has felt smooth , soft, & hydrated.

The moisturizer does have a thicker consistency to it and for me had too much scent to it. A little more than I like.

LorealRevitalift

When I applied it absorbed nicely into my skin. My skin instantly felt soft & smooth. I woke up to hydrated , healthy looking skin.  I had no problems applying make up on top of it . I’ve used it for 14 days and while it was a nice moisturizer , I don’t care for the perfume scent it has. I don’t think its something I would buy again because of that.  I will continue to use it daily in the morning and night until finished.

Discover Origins

I don’t think I’ve really tried any Origins products before. I’ve always heard good things so was happy when I received this sample bundle of skincare products from Origins & Influenster.

OriginsSkincareDiscoverOrigins

Cleanser: Checks & Balances ( frothy face wash)

Our clever cleanser balances faces with dry and oily places. This gentle, frothy face wash with Broad Leaf Kelp Extract, Wheat Protein and Tourmaline discourages excess oil production while protecting dry prone zones. Plus the aroma of Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender refreshes. Skin feels comfortably clean. Never tight, pulled or parched.

  • I really liked the way this cleanser foamed/ moussed up . I splashed water on my face and rubbed the cleanser onto my skin. It foamed up and I felt a little like Mrs Doubtfire when she stuffed her face in the cream pie. Lol It has a nice sorta minty scent which is energizing and relaxing. This left my face cleansed & refreshed.

Moisturizer: GinZing Energy-boosting moisturizer

hydrates & revs up radiance
This lightweight, oil-free, energizing moisturizer instantly hydrates and revs up radiance. It’s fortified with legendary skin-boosters like Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean. Lackluster-looking skin is rapidly refreshed and revitalized to create a healthy, vibrant glow.
  • I really loved the scent of this moisturizer. It was enegizing & refreshing.. smelled just like an orange. You know when you start to peel and that orange mist comes out of the peel? Just like that. It absorbed nicely into my skin and left my skin hydrated, smooth, & soft.

Mask : Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask to clean pores

Nature’s complexion clean-up crew clears the way for skin to act its best. Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin looks clear, feels perfectly pure.

OriginsCharcoalMask.JPG

I really enjoyed this mask because it didn’t make my skin feel tight while it dried. My skin felt clean, soft, & clean after using it.

Night cream: High-potency Night-A-Mins  (mineral-enriched renewal cream)

renews, refreshes, hydrates

Put dullness to rest. Our famous night cream is fortified with time-released resurfacers plus Vitamins C, E and H, minerals and moisture-rich replenishers. While relaxing aromas lull you to sleep, skin sloughs away dry, dead layers. Deletes dullness overnight so you wake up radiant and refreshed.

  • This cream is very hydrating. I did notice it left my skin looking a little greasy/ shiny but since it was at night I didn’t mind as much. It wasn’t sticky or anything. When I woke up my skin looked good, hydrated, and oh so soft.

Eye Cream: GinZing ( Refreshing Eye Cream to brighten & depuff)

Origins GinZing Eye cream

Our clinically-proven morning-after eye cream instantly reduces dark circles. Unsightly bags and puffiness virtually disappear. It’s formulated with Coffee Beans, Panax Ginseng, Magnolia Extract and natural optic brighteners. Rapidly wakes up, refreshes and restores radiance to tired eyes.
 Rapidly wakes up, refreshes, & restores radiance
  • This really does brighten up your eye area. It is a pearly cream that absorbs nicely into the skin brightening & hydrating the eye area.

 

I enjoyed using this skin care routine . Each product did what it claimed. My skin looked healthy, felt and looked great. I enjoyed the scents of each product as well, they didn’t smell artificial ..just natural. They were refreshing & energizing. Very pleased with my experience.

I wish I could have attended the event they had for mini facials but I was out of town and couldn’t figure out how to apply for the one in FL vs the invite I received ( which was for CT)

Definitely check these products out, especially the moisturizers.

Lancome Teint Idole Ultra VoxBox

Influenster hooked me up with a great box filled with Lancome makeup. I don’t think I’ve ever tried Lancome makeup so I was happy to try it out. When I first got an email saying I was getting this , I thought it was just a foundation. Then clicked the video and saw I was getting 3 more products.  I was super excited … and sort of stalked my mailman waiting for it to come. ( One day I ran after him! haha)

IMG_2293

I was sent a foundation, concealer, lip lacquer, & highlighter. You can find these products at Sephora as well as other stores that carry Lancome.

 

LancomeNaturalLook

Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation SPF 15 $47

This foundation is like liquid photoshop.  My skin looked flawless all day. It evened out my skin tone and I didn’t need to use a lot of the product. I would go by the mirror and get a glance and be like “Oh ..hey girl!” haha

There are 35 shades to choose from. Its oil-free, gives a medium to full coverage (buildable) , gives your skin a matte finish, & stays on all day. I am a little bummed because when I received it I think I could have went up a shade it was a little light. Then  I went on vacation & now the color doesn’t match. I will have to wait until next Winter or find a pale friend to give it to.

Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage Concealer $31

I wasn’t a huge fan of this concealer because it was on the thicker side but it did a nice job. This is really pigmented and is gives full coverage. A little product goes a long way.  It was so so with blending into the skin and it also got a little tacky. If I were to buy this I think this would be good for special occasions or if you have dark circles.  I prefer a concealer with light-medium coverage.

LancomeClickGlow

Click & Glow Highlighting Skin Fluid $23

This was my favorite of the products I received because the coloring was perfect & it gave me a natural glow.  I received Lumieres De Bronze which is an amber bronze color. Its a creme highlighter that blends into the skin nicely and gives your skin a nice shimmer in just one click. The only thing I didn’t like it that with a click a lot of product came out , so click lightly .  I liked the doe foot applicator and light weight formula. I used this mostly on my cheekbones.  The small size makes ideal for travelling ( whether you are going on vacation or just to have in a make up bag)

LancômeLipLacquer

Le Métallique Metallic Lip Lacquer Mirrored Nude $22

I didn’t care for this color on my lips alone. It looked like I hate a glazed powdered donut. I ended up applying it on top on my lipstick on the middle of my lips for dimension. The lacquer is infused with exclusive plexi-gloss polymers and metallic pearls which gives a 3D shine . I liked it much better that way. While wearing alone I noticed it felt a little tacky but it was also moisturizing.

 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Not Your Mother’s Beach babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray

NYMseasaltsprayhair

You can put this on wet or dry hair. I liked putting in on my hair when damp. I sprayed it on my tresses and scrunched my hair. Let it air dry or use a difuser and ta*da nice health natural waves. My hair is already wavy but this just helped enhance them. When my hair gets long , like it is now sometimes my hair gets weighed down. The spray is infused with sea salt, alie, & sea kelp. The formula is free of sulfate, paraben, phthalate, & dye.  The smell is amazing. It just makes you wish you were on the beach.

Purell Naturals

IMG_9556

This is made with 93% naturally derived ingredients and naturally fragrance using essential oils. It eliminates 99.99% illness-causing germs. I always carry hand sanitizer . I liked that this bottle has a twist lock top so if the cap comes off Im still safe. This smelled nice & didn’t dry out my hands.

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant

IMG_9364

Don’t worry about pit stains on your favorite clothes. It provides 2x sweat protection so you can worry about other things. It smells amazing & fresh & keeps you that way all day long.

Fancy Feet Ball of Foot Cushionsfancy feet

 

This will give you balls of your feet a break. These add stability & shock absorption to you’re strut, while keeping your feet from sliding. They are breathable & formulated with antimicrobial technology, keeping feet cool & dry. Wear these with heels, flats, wedges, boots, & sandals.

Vera Wang Embrace fragrance

Vera Wang Embrace

You can find these fragrances at places like Walgreens & Walmart.

The Periwinkle & Iris  reminds me a of a clean fresh scent.. a little like baby powder in a way.  I think of going out for a casual lunch , a day in the park, maybe a picnic.

The Green Tea & Pear Blossom is fresh , flirty. It was my favorite of the 2 scents. I see myself in a sundress walking through central park, maybe on a date or with friends.  It was crisp & floral.

Aquation daily moisturizing lotion

Aquation Twinkle Voxbox

This lotion is enriched with 3 ceramides, hyaluronic acid, & marine algae to help banish dry skin. It is clinically proven to hydrate for 24 hours for noticeably softer, healthy skin.It’s also Fragrance free. Non-comedogenic. Paraben free. Petrolatum free.

I’ve never heard of this brand before. I applied this everyday when I got out of the shower. The first thing I liked is no fragrance…nothing at all. Which is nice because then I don’t have to smell to many scents in the mornings. Sometimes I get migraines and smells are a trigger. I don’t have to worry about it fighting with my perfume or mist.

It does leave my skin looking and feeling healthy. Its lightweight and it absorbs quickly into the skin. It didn’t leave my skin feeling sticky or greasy. I don’t suffer from dry skin but in the Winter , any extra help is always needed. I’m a fan. You can find it at Walmart.

Not Your mother’s Clean Freak Unscented Dry Shampoo

Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo

What I liked about this dry shampoo is it didn’t leave any residue in my dark brown hair. Which can sometimes be an issie with dry shampoos. I don’t need a white spot or grey, dull looking hair. I don’t wash my hair every day , since it gets greasy and my hair doesn’t look as great. Dry shampoo over the past 1-2 years has really changed it for me. The scent is nice and does help extend another day without washing.

Reynolds Cookie Baking Sheets

Reynolds baking sheets

Love to bake or cook? The pre-cut parchment paper is pack to lay flat. No curling or rolling. These were so easy to use and easy to tear apart if you need a smaller piece. The best part is they made baking and cleaning a breeze. My cookies easily slid off  with no help needed. Clean up I just threw it away, wiped the pan and done. I will be buying these for when I cook and bake. I also used these when I cooked bacon in the oven & meatballs. I also liked that I could use them multiple times. I had a smaller cookie sheet so had use the sheet multiple times as well with the cookie sheet. Had no issues .

Country Crock Buttery Spread

Country Crock Buttery Spread

I’ve had this before. You know what I used to love doing as a kid with country crock. Being the first one to open and they had the little dollop center. I loved eating that part…alone  (shh) or on my food.  These made my cookies delicious with that nice buttery flavor. This butter is easy to mix in or spread.

  • See the recipe here .  Super easy and you can customize to your liking.

 

Covergirl So Lashy! by blastPRO Mascara $8.99

Covergirl So Lashy

 

This was made to work on all lashes. The uniquely designed brush transforms lashes for a bold sexy look that is unique to you and lets you lashes stand out. I wasn’t sure at first but after wearing it daily , I now like it. I like applying it as you normally would any mascara but then using the ball tip to go over my lashes for some extra volume. These help darken as well as give you volume. I’m not sure if its the wand , formula, perhaps both but it can get a little clumpy. I didn’t have any issues with fall out during the day that I noticed. These definitely make you lashes noticed & bold. I love it!

 

Axe White Label Night Body Wash

img_7419

I thought this was for women but I googled it and its for men lol. I opened the bottle in the shower, poured some in my hand and saw a dark purple and was like oh lala. Then I rubbed it on me and was like,  “oh wow that’s a very manly scent.” I remember they made a product or products for women? Did that ever take off? I gave this to a friend, he said he likes the smell. It has a mix of grapefruit, lavender, cedarwood and praline scents.

Oreo Thins

Oreo Thins

Oreos are the best. My pack came all broken, the cookie shown, the back was all smashed. It didn’t stop me from enjoying every crumb though 🙂 Oreo put a twist on their cookie and made them thin. They taste just like original oreos…just thinner and maybe a little more of a crispy texture.Try the mint flavor, they are my favorite because they taste like Girl Scout thin mint cookies.

Hills Bros Hot Cocoa Milk & Dark Chocolate

Hills Hot cococa

Crafted with real sugar & European milk & dark chocolate . It makes a perfect treat for any cold day.

Erno Laszlo #ThePowerofTwo Cleansing Duo

As a product junkie I love trying out different skincare & beauty products.

This product arrived just in time because I was almost out of my current cleanser.

Erno Laszlo- Detoxifying Double Cleanser

ernolazloset

I was intrigued, 2 steps. A cleaning oil & bar. I’m not really a fan of bar soap but was willing to give it a try.

This duo is good for pretty much all skin types from oily, sensitive, to combination. The detoxifying duo helps with pores, acne, blemishes, & oiliness.

Cleansing Oil :

This lightweight detoxifying oil ( which isn’t oily at all by the way) deeply cleanses to dissolve surface impurities and makeup, even reducing the look of large pores—without leaving skin feeling tight or dry. Its unique blend fights toxins and promotes natural skin exfoliation, cell turnover, and circulation to create a visibly clearer, more balanced, and soothed complexion.

What it does:

dissolves trapped oils, impurities, and makeup on contact.

Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar:

The Sea Mud Deep Cleansing Bar boasts uniquely therapeutic benefits of Dead Sea mud, with a mineral-rich, miracle-like nature to deeply detoxify, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin. Perfect for blemished or stressed complexions, this circulation-boosting bar removes oil, dirt, and residue upon contact, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth, and radiant. Dead Sea mud is known for its 26 minerals and comes in a signature black color that transforms to white foam when applied and works to maintain skin’s natural mineral levels. The formula packs a powerful moisture magnet, glycerin, to attract and hold hydration for a hydrated, glowing complexion, plus rich palm and palm kernel oils to support skin’s natural oil regulation, cell turnover, and defense against environmental stressors.

What it does:

cleanses using Dead Sea mud and charcoal to draw out impurities and visibly reduce pore size for a smooth, radiant look.

How to use it:

First you apply the cleansing oil to you dry face. Massage in circular motions with your finger tips ( remember to wash your hands before washing your face) Leave this on.

Next wet the bar. I use this as my tool. I move the bar over my face in gentle circular motion allowing the oil & bar work together. The bar makes it easy to get under your eyes without getting it them & the sides of your nose.

Put the bar down , slightly wetting my hands  I use my fingers and massage over my face to create a lather.

Rinse with warm water and apply a moisturizer.

Some drips with come off the bar ( one of the reasons I don’t care for bar soap) . The black soap doesn’t stain and is easy to wipe up.

My thoughts:

I was really impressed with this power duo. It was gentle on my skin and my face felt & looked great. It didn’t dry out my skin , my skin looked and felt clean, soft, & had a nice healthy glow. I also liked the travel set because it came with a cute little box. It allowed me to put the soap in the box, so it was away from everything else. I am a bit of a germaphobe when it comes to stuff like this. So the box is great!  It also allowed the bar to dry evenly without making the bottom of the bar mushy ….even when closed. I’m not sure if I’m completely in love with it just because of the bar so don’t know if I would buy in the future. I will have to see once I am done using it all.

Where to buy:

You can find Erno Laszlo at Sephora.

Travel set is $28

Cleansing Oil $58

Cleansing Bar $38

There are also other formulas to try depending on what you are looking for: Hydra-therapy, Sensitive, & Firming.

I do suggest the travel set since it does some with the oil & bar and you can see if it is something you like. A little does go a long way .

If you do buy it remember to sign up for a beauty insider. Its free and you can earn points.

Also go through ebates to get a cashback . Search Sephora

Woohoo another great box from Influenster filled with a variety of 5 products.

 

Curate Bar

Curate Bar

This company take wholesome ingredients and combines them in unexpected ways to make a delicious snack.

First I tried the Curate Bar , they sent me a Dark & Tempting Balsamic Fig & Hazelnut

I haven’t heard of this brand before so was intrigued, especially by the flavors & ingredients. The one thing I like is you can make out the ingredient in the bar.  There is figs, balsamic vinegar, orange, hazelnuts, quinoa, & sunflower kernels. The bar had a nice texture mix between chewy & a nice crunch from the nuts. It had just the right of richness & sweetness. Perfect for a snack any time of the day. Plus its a snack you can feel good about eating. These bars are non-GMO , gluten-free and never contain artificial preservatives, flavors, or colors.  I recently spotted them at Target for $5.99.  Next on my list to try is the Irresistible Dark chocolate with strawberries & pistachios  & Sweet & Tart Berry Bliss but all the flavors look great.

  • Indulgent Dark Chocolate & Hazelnut
  • Salted Decadence Dark Chocolate & Almonds
  • Harmonious Blend Marcona Almond & Apricot
  • Sweet & Tart Berry Bliss
  • Dark & Tempting Balsamic Fig & Hazelnut
  • IrresistibleDark Chocolate Strawberries & Pistachios

 

Hair Food Moisture Collection

 

The moisture collection is designed to soothe dry hair by adding just the right amount of hydration & shine. It has honey essences to provide luxurious moisture & nourishment for healthy hair.  The shampoo is free of silicones, parabens, & mineral oil & the conditioner is free of parabens & mineral oil.  As you can see I have a lot of hair. It wavy texture & thick so it is a little hard to see how this product will really work with just a sample. I did enjoy how it left my hair. The formula smelled great & was light weight.  When I put the shampoo in my hair and was washing my hair , it felt really smooth. Once my hair was dried my hair was still really soft, smelled lovely, and had a nice healthy shine.

 

Eatsmart Snacks

Eatsmart Snacks

These Spicy black bean tortilla chips will add some bold flavor to your snack time. These are made with 3 beans ( navy, pinto, & black beans) so they have a little more fiber. They also have whole yellow corn so the chips have still have that nice crunch to them. There are about 15 ingredients in these chips all which you can read like whole yellow corn, sunflower oil, jalapeno pepper, navy bean grits, tomato powder, onion powder, ect.

I don’t really care for spicy stuff but have been adventuring out. These weren’t spicy but they do have a nice kick to them. I like having a mashed avocado with them it helps balance it out but they are also good alone.  The chips have 14 grams of whole grains, gluten-free, & made with non-gmo ingredients. These are chips you can feel good about eating & make snack time a little more exciting. I’m officially a fan. Want to try their garlic & hummus chips next.

Orgain Organic Protein Powder

Orgain Organic Protein Powder

This is a plant based protein powder which is USDA Organic, gluten-free, soy free, & non-gmo. When I opened up the packet it smelled delicious, like vanilla cake. I ended up making a smoothie with it. Almond milk, banana, a few frozen strawberries.  While I drank my smoothie it had no weird taste or after taste. It also blended well, no gritty texture. I could taste the vanilla and the smoothie left me satisfied & full.

 

Ecos

ecos

This formula is hypoallergenic made with high-quality ingredients at a low price. Its gentle, plant derived ingredients, & has a built-in fabric softner. It is effective at protecting colors & fabrics. They don’t test on animals, its pH balanced & kind on the skin. Free of formaldehyde & dyes. I sometimes have a sensitivity to certain laundry detergents so was curious to see how this would work. You know when you see commercials or photos and they are hanging clothes in a field and the breeze is going. Thats what the magnolia & lily scent reminded me of. It was light & pleasant. I ended up hand washing a few items. They seemed clean & smelled nice.
