I really liked this cream. Inside the came there is a little spatula so no need to stick your finger in the tub. It was so hydrating, my skin felt so plump after using it. It absorbed nicely into my skin and didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or tacky. Make up went on top smoothly without any issues.  It contains ingredients such as coconut oil, sea buckthorn, shea butter, cocoa butter, aloe, and soothing algae to help moisturize the skin. Peptides and hyaluronic acid help skin appear smoother, more youthful and radiant.

I love the smell of this multipurpose product. It smells like an orange, the texture is fine, and my face felt great after using it. I preferred to use it as a mask or scrubs, I thought for my skin it would be too much to use it daily as a cleanser. Some of the ingredients are calendula , sweet orange , grapeseed oils , cucumber , parsley, & chamomile.

 

Zit No More

Benefits:

  • clears up blemishes & pimples and allows skin to heal
  • penetrates pores to clear most blemishes
  • Helps keep skin clear of new pimples

retails: $18

I was surprised with this spot treatment. You think when you leave high school , acne & blemishes would be no more. Not in my case. Usually get them when I go overboard on that good stuff I shouldn’t have like chips, ice cream, candy, etc.. or that time of month.  I like the roller ball applicator . This has helped those pesky blemish/ pimples disappear overnight to a few days . The key ingredients are : salicylic acid to dry up pimples • tea tree oil to help cure the blemish • essential oils to restore skin • The tea tree oil is a bit strong but I like it and it does go away  quickly. Good ingredients, easy to use, and works quickly. My new favorite spot treatment.

#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.

Apply morning & night after cleansing face.

 

Final thoughts: 

I love how light weight this formula is. It’s not as thick as you think when you think of a gel. It glides on smoothly and absorbs pretty quick.  It doesn’t leave skin sticky and doesn’t mess up any make up you put on top. My skin feels nourished, hydrated, smooth, soft, & healthy. I tried a small sample of the eye gel in the summer and liked it. I was happy that Crowdtap sent me a full sized product of the moisturizer because I was happy with the eye gel. I’ve been using it for about 2-3 weeks day & night & have liked the results.

The only con for me is that it comes in a jar. I prefer pumps because I feel like it keep the ingredients fresh & helps keep it from getting contaminated.

Protect your skin with Aveeno Positively Radiant Moisturizer with SPF #AveenoAdvocate

Aveeno SPF Moisturizer Crowdtap

I love Aveeno moisturizers. Years ago I got a sample and liked how it felt. I ended up buying a full size bottle & have been buying it since.

Not only does Aveeno keep my skin healthy by keeping it hydrated, soft, & smooth… but it also doesn’t mess with my makeup when I apply it. That was one of the things I was looking for years ago. A few moisturizers I was trying would make my makeup clump up and wouldn’t allow the make up to apply correctly. Who wants to deal with that in the mornings? Not me.That is one of the big things that got my attention when I tried the sample years ago ( I didn’t know how great it would leave and make skin skin look & feel as well)

Right now I currently use Aveeno Clear Complexion but I used to use Aveeno moisturizer with SPF. I was happy when Crowdtap sent me 3 sample size tubes to try.

AveenoSPFFlowerO
