Review, Raw Elements eco-formula lotion tube SPF 30

Hello lovelies,
I hope you are having a fantastic week so far tomorrow is Friday so, yippie!!.

I did not know I was receiving this sunscreen in the mail. Raw Elements told me they were sending me something but didn't say what it was I am not being paid to do this review.

I live in the sunshine State which is Florida. Sunscreen is a daily ritual for me and it should be for you too. My go to sunscreen is Cotz sensitive sunscreen which is 100% free of chemicals, preservatives, and oil's.

The following ingredients are listed in this order-

1. Non-nano zinc oxide 23%:
It sits on top of the skin scattering, reflecting, and absorbing UVA and UVB rays.
Zinc is the safest and most effective active sunscreen ingredient.

2. Organic sunflower seed oil:
There are three different types of sunflower seed oil.
high oleic acid
mid oleic acid
and
linoleic acid.
The difference between the three is a result of the balance between polyunsaturated and monounsaturated saturated fats.
The problem is that there is no way to find out which acid it is primarily made up of.

3. Organic hemp seed oil:
Good to use on aging skin, it is a gamma linoleic acid, which is a good choice for acne prone skin. It is good at treating inflammation, rich in antioxidants vitamins E, A, and D.

4. Organic Green and Black tea:
Black tea is known to treat razor bumps, itchy red skin because of the tannins which go to work right away and provide immediate relief. It has vitamins B-2, C, and E.
Minerals like magnesium, potassium and zinc.
Green tea reduces inflammation, soothes psoriasis and rosacea.

5. Organic coffee oil:
High in fatty acids, sterols, and vitamin E.
The issue is it doesn't say what oil the coffee was soaked in. That is a make or break decision for most people if you know how your skin reacts to certain oils.

6. Organic cocoa butter:
According to research this is highly pore clogging.

7.Natural mango butter:
High in palmitic acid which will temporarily soften the skin but tends to clog pores.

8. Organic beeswax:
According to research this will not clog the skin. It will hold it moisture in your skin and reduce dryness. High in vitamin a, and gives the product a smooth creamy texture.

9. Candelilla wax:
Extracted from Euphorbia cerifera shrub. Binds ingredients together. Rich in nutrients and is easily absorbed into the skin.

10. Rosemary oil extract:
Knowing to strengthen your capillaries and stimulate biological activity to reduce fine lines. Rich in calcium and antioxidants. It also works as a disinfectant with antibiotic properties, treats acne and lightens dark spots.
Some people say it reduces puffiness, eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.

11. Natural vitamin E:
There are two types of vitamin E, natural and unnatural.
To make the unnatural they take the natural and add an acid to it.
The unnatural name is Tocopheryl Acetate. The acetate comes about when the vitamin E is mixed with Acetic acid which is the main component of vinegar and will irritate your skin.

12. Natural iron oxides

You get a 3 ounce tube for 18.99
Hence the picture I inserted at the bottom of the post. The tube books halfway empty, it came that way!.
On their Website

So far, only two reviews have been left both saying they enjoyed this sunscreen.

I'm going to insert some pictures so you can see the texture of this. It is extremely thick and I found it impossible to fully blend into my skin.

I hope you have found this review helpful. Take care of yourself 🤗.

Makeup Worship Cosmetics

Hello, my lovelies!. How are you doing? let me know in the comment section, please. Life is good here at home. I’m homeschooling my eldest son, Joshua, which is in the 6th grade, and let me just say,”I’m fixing to be 33 years old and I’ve forgotten most of what I learned in school”. The topics covered in each subject have gotten much harder than what I remember doing, and I am learning with him. 

So, this brand, Makeup Worship is another “new to me” brand and I couldn’t be happier about that. I just LOVE it when I stumble upon a brand I’ve never heard of, I just get so giddy especially when it’s an Indie brand no pun to the mainstream brands. The concept in which this brand is promoting wanting you to feel confident, and sexy, without shame, I’m all for that. Before we get to the products I will, of course, give you the back story because it is important for you to understand.

Korrie is the founder and here is what she has to say,” Since 2014 I’ve been working with my lab partners to develop a super sexy, playful, premium but affordable boutique makeup line. It took a lot of hard work but the results are better than I could have dreamed for. My goal is to make everyone feel confident and sexy no matter what your interests/gender/sexual preferences are. Guilt and self-doubt have no place in my life. From our humble headquarters in sunny South Florida, we have been busy creating a sensual boutique line of premium cosmetics designed for those who want to push boundaries and explore their sexuality .  We are a fetish-friendly company that encourages everyone to embrace what turns them on without shame, fear or guilt.  Let us help you feel beautiful, wanted and in control.Craft the look you want tonight.  Schoolgirl, Diva, Dominatrix,  Pin-Up.  Makeup Worship is designed to transform you into whatever role you choose.  Why limit yourself to just one look?  We use quality ingredients, bold colors, best-in-class foundations and eye and lip treatments to get you the attention that you crave.We are a family business and take pride in providing well-crafted products and the kind of customer service that the big brands could only dream of. Our cosmetics are: Cruelty-Free, Paraben-Free, Gluten-Free and, Made in North America

First I will show you the Lid Lusters, I have 2. You get 4 Grams of product for 16.99.

The Eyeshadow Primer I used is from Makeup Worship as well, which we will cover in a second. Damn I’m Hot loose pigment is SO beautiful.

img_0895

You’ll Do is just as perfect as the previous one!. For me, personally, I adore loose shadows FAR better than most pressed, for a few reasons. Fist let me say if you open your jar with ease, and not carelessly the mess really will not be bad. If the pigment you are using did not come with a sifter, simply sit the pot onto a piece of paper, then unscrew the cap; that way you can taco-fold the paper and slowly pour the bit that spilled out into the pot when finished. Loose shadows have their high points: Apply them wet for a more intense color payoff and a longer lasting look. The pigmentation in a loose shadow is usually brighter, smoother, and longer lasting in my opinion.

This next item is a must have for me, which is the Seal The Deal Liner, here you get .125 Ounces for 11.99. In the picture below, it’s the small clear tube at the top. It makes ANY loose shadow into a completely waterproof liner, and what’s great is with this one is that you can dab a bit on top of your finished eyeshadow look to make your entire eye look waterproof. Doing this will not ruin your shadow, or make it crumble off, it’s a great product!.

Lastly, I have the Pregame Eyeshadow Primer  You get 0.20 Ounces for 12.74 but only for a LIMITED time, otherwise it is 16.99. This primer did a good job of keeping my shadows vibrant and apply to my eyes nicely. An added bonus for me is that it is going to even out the lid, taking away any veins, or darkness you may have.

I hope you have enjoyed this post and I hope you’ll come back to see me. Please, have a great fun and safe weekend my friends. Contact me anytime, hit me up in the comments if you like and tell me what you would like to see me do next!. I’ll do my very best to get every single request done.

Sincerely, Amber.

 

NUXE Paris Dry Oil and Shimmering Oil Review.

Hello my Lovelies!. I hope you are all well, thank you for reading my Blog, without your support, I’d be doing this just for myself. I was overwhelmed when I received this beautiful box of skincare and body care from NUXE!. This is a brand coveted, highly loved by a vast amount of Men and Women. I am happy to bring these reviews to you and I hope you enjoy and learn a thing or two.

I have used 1/2 of the bottle of the Dry Oil, without the shimmer, and I LOVE it. The Shimmering bottle, I have used this 4 times, on my collarbone, and shoulders for that glow and it’s STUNNING!. This oil absorbed beautifully into my skin, as long as you do not use too much, start with a few drops, and use “just enough” to evenly cover. My bottle(s) that I have is not in spray form, and I am just fine with that. This oil will not just run freely out of the bottle, you need to shake it a bit, and I appreciate that fact because you are less likely to pour it everywhere. I think its nice that you can purchase these oils in spray form, but, I think you may end up waisting much more that way. My skin has reacted great, no breakouts, no clogged pores, I personally have normal skin that is nor oily nor dry. I honestly think I am addicted to both oils and I am happy to have them in my skincare/bodycare. Here is some information for you:

Huile Prodigieuse is France’s leading beauty oil.
This multi-usage dry oil, made using six Precious Plant Oils (Macadamia, Hazelnut, Borage,
Sweet Almond, Camellia, and St. John’s Wort), nourishes, repairs and softens skin and hair.
It has a unique dry oil texture and a captivating fragrance.

Ever wonder where Parisian women get that natural glow? That je ne sais quoi sense of chic? Here’s a little secret: they’re not always born with it (yes, they have their beauty secrets too!).

Dry oil Huile Prodigieuse and its sister, the Shimmering Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse,  (for a golden, sun-kissed look) are more than classics, they have become an integral part of every self-respecting Parisian woman’s beauty regimen—no bathroom cabinet is complete without it! Borrow a few tips from her beauty routine: this multi-usage oil is a treat on its own, or it can replace your face, body and hand cream.

Blend a few precious drops in with your favorite cream or serum, use on wet hair to impart an effortless just-out-of-the-shower style, blend into your foundation for a dewy finish and get an extra glow by mixing it with your favorite moisturizer, and using it  before applying a face mask will give your skin a burst of moisture. Dry oil Huile Prodigieuse is a must-have for every chic woman—her all-in-one beauty potion. Now you’re in on the secret

Dry oil Huile Prodigieuse Ingredients Contains at least 97.8 % of natural origin ingredients , no  preservatives.

NUXE Reve De Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm Review.

 

Hello my lovelies!. How have you been?. I hope your Fourth Of July celebrations were a blast and that everyone was kept safe. We live way out, sorta in the country and the fireworks were lit by my husband, Joshua. Our youngest, Autumn, she is 4, and this year she REALLY loved the show. We had the Family over for food and fireworks and it was a wonderful time. P.S. I love it when I see my childs face when they are fascinated with something, seeing their eyes light up, it is a joy to watch, what a great heart warming feeling true love is.

First and foremost this Lip Balm I am reviewing was sent to me by NUXE, along with a few other items that I will be reviewing in the coming days. I would never lie to you about any product that I test. I am an open, good hearted, honest Mama. I love trying and reviewing things for you for a few reasons. I want to be the one you come to knowing that you will get my straight up opinion, along with all the facts I am aware of on the product. I want you to know about this special brand, so here is some history!.

“The effortless natural beauty of Parisian women and a passion for nature have forged my vision for Nuxe over the years. My philosophy has always been to offer every woman an indulgent, sensorial experience with products that are easy to use and combine precious natural active ingredients with the latest technological innovation.”   Aliza Jabès. (Founder). In 1989, Aliza discovered Nuxe, a small, natural skincare laboratory based in Paris, and purchased the Laboratory. She knew she’d hit on something big: a unique concept combining Nature and Luxury, fundamentals that have inspired and guided the brand’s philosophy through the years. There are: 45 PATENTS FILED Guarantee of performance, innovation and exclusivity PLUS, more patents coming.

If you’ve been reading my blog for a bit, you know that I have always had cracked, horrible lips, my entire life. I honestly do not know if there is a “heal all” lip care product out there, maybe this is it?. I am really loving this Lip Balm. I have never used a balm like this one before. The texture is very thick, which is beneficial  I think, and it has gives your lips a MATTE finish, something I’ve never seen in a Lip Balm before.There is the slightest ever scent of grapefruit which I find refreshing. I slap this on my lips at least 4 times a day, everyday, for the past week in a half and my lips are supple 🙂 You get Jar 0.52 oz for 15.00 and I’ll repurchase this for the rest of my days. Its not just me who loves this product, this has 5 star reviews everywhere i’ve looked.

Well there you have it my friends. If you decide to purchase this, HERE  use it, and please come back here and comment your thoughts on it, I’d love to interact with you!!.

Review’s of Red Rock Organics Manuka Honey Skin Cream, Face & Body Wash

Hello my Lovelies!. How are you doing? Let me know in the comments, please. The Brand, Red Rock Organics is a newer brand to me. I reached out to them simply because I have heard all the rage about Manuka Honey and what it can do for your skin, if it is the “real deal” Manuka Honey. I’ll give you some information.

It is very simple. Not all Manuka Honey available is the same!. Research behind Manuka honey is based on a special, unique, extra antibacterial property only found in some.
A ‘TA’ honey can simply not be compared to a genuine UMF® certified jar. (apples v pears). UMF® is a Total Quality mark for Manuka honey, so you can be confident the honey inside is true to label.

Genuine UMF® Manuka Honey complies with all five of the following criteria:

1. It has the name UMF® clearly stated on the front label.
2. It is packed into jars and labelled in New Zealand.
3. It is from a New Zealand company licensed to use the name UMF.
4. It has the UMF licensee’s name on the front label.
5. It has a rating of UMF5 or more

Now that you have a pretty good idea of what to look for, you know now to do better than I did. It is my own fault for not looking and reading more clearly about the products. I just saw the words, Manuka and squealed with excitement. Although the Face Wash and the Cream does not have the UMF® on either products, nowhere on Red Rocks Organics website do they claim to be using the real deal honey, so, that was over sighted by me. That said, I’ve been using the two for over two weeks with no breakouts or skin irritation. I am glad to have tested them out, but I will next time make sure I look into the ingredient list better. Here are some pictures for you 🙂

IMG_8182

IMG_8184

There are a host of good ingredients in this line, but, also some that are not so good. It is hard to say if I would recommend these products. I’d say no, if you want all the benefits that true Manuka honey offers which are:

Healing sore throats, digestive illnesses, like  reducing acid reflux. Curing Staph infections and gingivitis, works marvelously for acne and eczema, improved wound healing, pain relief in burn patients,  boosts vitality, promote  energy, and has been known to improve skin tone and texture. Honestly the list goes on!.On the other hand my skin had no adverse explosions, for that I am happy. Red Rock Organics website to have a look at their products for sale.

I hope that this review has help you. I truly thrive on finding products to try for all of you. I hope you have a great, safe weekend and I’ll be seeing ya!.

Truly, Amber Morris.
