Lypo-Spheric R-ALA review

Hello again!

Lypo-Spheric R-ALA is a dietary supplement that is gluten free, sugar free and non-gmo. It’s a liquid-ish formula that you mix into any cool beverage and is safe to take twice daily. They come in individual foil packets, 30 packets a box at under $60. So that’s either a 15 day supply or for me since I took 1 then 2 every other day it last over 20 days(:

Box reads ” As a dietary supplement, take one packet 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by a healthcare practitioner. For best results, snip or year the notched end of the packet, squeeze into one or more ounces of your favorite cool beverage, drink on an empty stomach and wait at least 15 minutes before eating. Contents of packet will not dissolve.”

Thoughts on that would be that it really doesn’t dissolve and it doesn’t have too much flavor but you do notice it’s there, so it’s not flavorless!

Claims:
Promotes and maintains cellular energy production*
Promotes healthy insulin sensitivity*
Supports weight-loss when combined with a low calorie diet*

* -haven’t been evaluated by the FDA. Not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any diseases

My first experience wasn’t the worst but it was definitely not the most comfortable. I took the packet with apple juice, tired my hardest to mix it but it holds true to not dissolving); I chugged it as fast as I could manage and felt the worst was over as it’s not my favorite texture for a beverage.
After about 10 minutes my stomach was over it and started to kind of twist from being empty, as you are to take it on an empty stomach, but the discomfort ceased after I ate and I didn’t have any side effect after eating.

I will say that my stomach looked pretty flat for just having ate (every time I took it) and I did feel lighter by the first weeks end. It did not really help with appetite suppression so I do recommend planning on doing some portion control.

Overall I will continue to use this product and may purchase it in the future if I happen to need a dietary aid.

Natural Facial Moisturizer by Adovia Review

IMG_0385.JPG

Welcome (:

I’ve been extremely sick the past week so I’m so sorry for the delay in posts.
Lets get this review started!

“ Perfect for all skin types including Normal ski, Dry skin, Oily skin, Sensitive skin and combination skin. Hypoallergenic, premier dead sea minerals and anti-aging ingredients for deep hydration and skin care treatment. “

Info from their Amazon listing;

The Moisturizer: moisturize and protect your skin with Adovias quick absorbing and non greasy, daily face moisturizer. Contains natural oils and aloe vera gel for a deep hydration that lasts all day.

– My opinion – its kind of greasy but not overly oily to where I feel I need to blot my face

The Benefits: Quenches your skins thirst with natural, deep hydration that lasts all day giving you a more radiant complexion.

– Is extremely moisturizing but doesn’t make your makeup looked caked on

– Packaging is super cute, frosted looking glass, it’s pretty thick and should survive a light drop on the counter or carpeted floor. For a moisturizer I know cream pots aren’t a favorite but I like it, reminds me of the olden days movies ;p But I do actually use a spoon to get product out vs my fingers

The Company: Adovia Mineral Skin Care has been producing skin care products for ten years with thousands of satisfied customers and a proven track record. Our formulation experts specialize in hair and skin care products made from Dead Sea Mud and Dead Sea Salt. Our products are 100% CURUELTY FREE and Never tested on animals

This was the first product I tried from Adovia and I will say that I am impressed with the quality of this moisturizer, its really soft and creamy. Although there is a slight scent it isn’t one of added fragrance so even though I was hesitant trying it since I have sensitive skin but surprisingly it didn’t break me out.

Over all I do recommend this product especially for dry or aging skin, it’s super moisturizing and a little goes a long way!

TeaZa Herbal Energy Pouches Review

Hey there!

Recently I’ve been getting into herbal and natural energy supplements and I found that one of the most common ones brought up was tea, mostly green tea. Naturally when I saw this promotion on tomoson, I went for it!

What is TeaZa?
“TeaZa is a small biodegradable pouch full of healthy NATURAL herbs, vitamins and a small amount of caffeine designed to boost energy and mental focus while providing oral satisfaction to ward off unwanted cravings. This power pouch is placed between the lip and gum and will stimulate your taste buds for hours.”

And I would have to completely agree. I received 3 different flavors, Peppermint, Black Cherry and cinnamon but in addition to those they offer Fire, coffee and chill!
You can use them in 3 different ways, which I tried all, first is just put it in your water bottle and shake it up, second is as a hot tea and third is a little odd but it’s stick it between your gums and lip!

Haha the third one is the reason it has the “Not tobacco” label on it, which I found odd at first. I tried this as my initial method and I just couldn’t handle it. The bags are so flavorful and delicious I kept wanting to chew it so I had to take it out 😔
After that I did water bottle and hot tea and I used one bag for both and they came out equally as potent so they are extremely packed with flavor!

Oh did I mention they don’t have any sugar and are CALORIE FREE?! Yeah, I think I did, but I’m mentioning it now 😉
Also they do give you sufficient energy throughout the day without any jitters, crashing or if you’re like me, headaches and nausea. So I really am a fan of these yummy pouches.

I do recommend this product which you can purchase from Trim Nutrition (host of this promo) or directly from TeaZa Energy. Either way you’ll be getting an awesome product that will give you the best tea bang for your buck.

Thanks for reading!

Petunia 1mm DermaRoller Review

Hello there!

In case you don’t know what a dermaroller is, it’s a plastic device that has a roller thingy with hundreds in this case 540 needles on it.
IMG_0080.JPG

You’re supposed to roll it over problem areas and it promotes collagen production and circulation. Simple enough but it looks like hell! There are 7 needle sizes that you can get on your own and 2 larger needles that require anesthesia which is administered by a physician.

IMG_0076-0.JPG

I have the 1mm roller which is used for

-Improve appearance of Deep Acne Scars
-Cellulite reduction
-Stretch Marks
-Tighten and smooth skin
-Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
-Reduce enlarged pores

I personally will not use this size of needle on my face because I haven’t used the small ones in a very long time so its kind of scary! So I’ve been using this on my cellulite and stretch marks on my thighs in combination with an anti cellulite cream and DIY cellulite scrub in this order.

Morning prep

-Use DIY coffee scrub in shower

Immediately before use

-Clean and sanitize area being rolled AND derma roller

-I usually dip it in boiling water a few times then I’ll soak it in alcohol and dip it once more in the water

Using and aftercare

– Roll derma roller with light pressure horizontally 5-10 times then vertically and diagonally (see photo)
– I usually do one leg then sanitize and do the other one
– I like to wait 10-20 minutes before I apply any serums or creams just depending on the inflammation, if its not all red and sore then I’ll apply it in like 10 minutes
– SANITIZEEEEEEEE before putting it away!!!
– Let area dry and try not to rub it or cover the area for at least an hour

IMG_0075.JPG

Now as I said some days it’ll be more red than others and everyone’s skin is different so you should really use your best judgment when doing this. Start with going over it 5 times then increase each week, which brings me to the answer of ‘how often should I use this’ it is recommended to use 1-3 times a week on the FACE and 3-4 times a week on the body. I would say start off with 1-2 times a week then gradually increase that to 3-4.

Pain factor, yes it is kind of painful. Its not like being stabbed or cutting yourself its actually like being scratched with jagged finger nails haha so if you cant handle that then this product isn’t for you. Also you are repeating this process 5-10 times per direction in one area, it does get uncomfortable but that’s the price of beauty ;p It will be red, it will look like ground beef (just not as deep) but don’t get me wrong, its not the worst and it isn’t unbearable at all and for the results, its worth it!

Results, now with this it is a process and you have to keep at it and be consistent. By the second month I was able to honestly say that my stretch marks weren’t as pronounced and that I could easily cover them with self tanner and not have to worry about the silvery lines shinning through (not that I wore anything that showed my thighs, but under my shorts it was all good) I’m confident in this process and expect it to continue. Realistically nothing will make your stretch marks completely disappear, I don’t think its possible and every dermatologist ive seen seems to agree but with cellulite it is possible with increasing needle length and some dietary changes!

Bottom line is, if you can take it then I recommend this product. But also I do suggest you starting with a smaller needle until you’re more comfortable with it then gradually increase size. I would start with .25mm for the face or .30mm if your skin is a bit more tough then increase. Do remember to SANITIZEEEEEEEE the hell out of these things BEFORE and AFTER each use the bacteria that could accumulate can cause some serious issues so please remember that! Also this is how it comes so make sure yours is completely sealed also.

4. If you had to choose one food to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Cheese… Yup, cheese! Or cauliflower if cheese doesn’t count. Lol

5. Name one person that’s really inspired you.

That’s hard. I can’t really choose just one, so many people have contributed to what I’ve become and what I still pursue but if I had to choose only one it would be the woman who taught me how to be a good person Tammy Herring! She’s one of the most kind hearted, loving women I have ever met in my life she has raised and loved me as if I were her own and never has she judged me or turned her back on me, for the last 12 years she’s been my rock even through her own hard knocks!

1. Aurora -cat
2. Eros -cat

I would work for the FBI in the BAU! Dream job, I know it’s nothing like on tv but it is what I am working towards and most passionate about.

10. If you could have a super power, what would you pick?

To read people’s minds!! I’ve always wondered what other would thinking. I feel like if I knew, it would help thicken my skin and make me more trusting.

Physically it would be snakes!!! So effing scared ): Mentally or emotionally would be losing my moms, I couldn’t bare it.

And…11 random facts about myself:
