OZ NATURALS SUPER YOUTH PLANT STEM CELL EYE GEL

*product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

Up for review today is another great quality product from OZ Naturals, Super Youth Plant Stem Cell Eye Gel. This is the second product I'm testing from the brand and I love it. OZ Naturals is cruelty free, vegan and made in the USA. The eye gel is also a multi-tasking item that can be used in several ways. Read more below to find out. Who doesn't want youthful looking eyes? Stay Beautiful! XOXO 

Super Youth Eye Gel Will Provide Your Skin With The Following Benefits: Dramatically Radiant & Youthful Eyes, Eliminate Dark Circles, Puffiness and Wrinkles, Designed For The Delicate Skin Around Your Eyes; Including Eyelids, Can Be Used As An All-Over Face Treatment For A Brighter More Radiant Complexion, Safe For All Skin Types & Does Not Contain Parabens, Sulfates Or Alcohol. OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel can be used multiple times per day and works well with all skin types. This gel will not clog pores & does not contain parabens, sulfates or alcohol. It can also be used as an all over face treatment and works well under makeup. Key ingredients are: Matrixyl 3000, Peptide Complex, Natural Plant Stem Cells, Cucumber Hydrosol, Jojoba Oil, Vegan Hyaluronic Acid, Amino Acid Blend, Wildcrafted Periwinkle, Organic Licorice, Wild Crafted Eye Bright, Wild Crafted Reishi, Organic Gotu Kola, Vitamin E. Ingredients are 75% natural. Directions:Wash & pat-dry face. If applying toner, do so before applying eye gel. Dab around eyes, including eyelids. You may or may not wish to follow with moisturizer depending on skin's needs. 
 

Formula: The gel is non-sticky, lightweight and absorbs rapidly. I love that it's made to be used all over the eye area including the lids because I have sensitive eyes and do not appreciate the burn. The skin around my eyes felt moisturized and soothed. I've only been using it for two weeks so I can't comment on the dark area brightening effect but overall I see a slight difference. A fabulous feature of the gel is that it can be used on your face as an all over brightener. You can apply the gel on your eyes and face in one step! A small amount goes along way because it's rather fluid in consistency. I used a small dot for both eye lids. The best part for me is having an eye product that is cruelty free and vegan but with powerful antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. It's also more affordable than any department store brand. There's really nothing to lose in trying for yourself and it happens to be the best selling eye gel on Amazon. Visit Oz Naturals to browse collection of amazing skin care products.

TREND ALERT: FACE BAKING + BAKE YOUR FACE









In the ever rapid changing world of fashion and beauty fads, oftentimes unusual inspiration comes along that helps break up the monotony of daily habits. This seasons latest beauty trend is Face Baking. If you haven't heard about this yet it's because the technique is an insider make-up artist trick. Yes, you read correctly. Baking your face is what the cool kids do. And no actually heating of the face involved. Intrigued so far? What face baking actually is: it's when you apply copious amounts of fine finishing powder on the under eye area and top portion of the cheeks then allow it to sit anywhere from 5 to 25 minutes. This is the "baking" process. After which you vigorously blend in the powder. What this does is conceal and set the under eye area, highlights the upper cheeks and center features of your face. The principle behind baking is that by allowing the powder to bake, the natural oils on your face will melt the product into your skin creating a creamy, flawless finish that sets your look. It's meant to work wonders for keeping under eye area concealed all day without budging. Who doesn't want a seamless perfect finish? At first I laughed because I was skeptical about a heavy powder application but for testing purposes I donated my face to the baking cause and was impressed. Are you ready to get baked? Stay Beautiful! XOXO

What you'll need: professional beauty sponge, stippling/blending brush, professional grade fine finishing powder of your shade and optional banana powder for added glow


From my collection: Le Clerc Model's Banana Powder and Hourglass Ethereal Glow Powder

Sephora Beauty Sponge and Stippling Brush

How To: Apply your foundation as normal then under eye concealer and blend in. At this point you can finish your eye shadow and lips if you like otherwise save the steps for last. Now use a very fine finishing face powder. I used Hourglass Ethereal Glow mixed with Le Clerc Banana. One is extremely pale white, the other pale lemon yellow. They both match my skin tone. I mixed two shades because the banana adds another dimension of glow. Use your own skin matching shades. Use a high end powder that won't cake and is airy. Both brands featured are pricey but the quality is superb! Next, in a V shape under the eye area and the uppermost top portion of your cheeks, apply a super generous amount of powder. Don't blend it in! Use a swipe action with a beauty blender sponge. Then apply on the center of your forehead, above the bridge of your nose and center of your chin in a circular shape. Let it sit on your face 5 to 25 minutes. When the time is up, blend the powder well into your skin with the sponge and then with the buffing/blending brush apply a quick all over dusting to your face. Apply blush and the rest of your makeup. You're done! Your cheekbones should appear glowing and highlighted and your eye concealer should appear fresh and stay put all day.

Opinion: After applying this technique and about 6 hours later, officially I'm impressed. My under eye area is still concealed and fresh with minor creasing underneath the lower lash line that isn't visible. While I wouldn't have time to perform this ritual as part of my daily routine, it would be something I would consider for a special event or for photography purposes. But if I did have the time I really would set my under eye area like this.

RBX DIGITAL CAMO CAPRI LEGGINGS + 25% DISCOUNT!



*product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

I'm excited to be reviewing the new RBX Digital Camo Capri Legging. Fashionable, comfortable and practical are terms to describe them. And when your not running or working out at the gym, the stylish leggings are great as everyday wear. Publicity was nice enough to send me a pair in my choice of color and I chose the military green option featured in this review. As a special bonus for my members, a 25% off code -ACTIVE25- available to use now through July 31. Plus free shipping will be offered on orders over $50 after the coupon deduction! Who's ready to take sports wear to a new level? Stay Beautiful! XOXO
New York based RBX Active debuted on the active wear scene just three years ago and has grown steadily because of its superior quality, up to the minute styling and accessible pricing. Led by President and CEO, Eli Yedid, the company features the ultimate in fashion-active apparel and fitness accessories at price points that are realistic for today's active consumer. Their slogan -LIVE LIFE ACTIVE effectively describes the spirit of the brand. RBX Active is a hot brand in a growing category that is here to stay. The brand delivers the best fitness apparel and accessories ensuring today's busy women can find an exciting look that transitions from the gym to the street. The collection of tops, bottoms and jackets are easy to mix and match to reflect an individual's style as they travel from activity to activity. 
One of the signature styles, THE DIGITAL CAMO LEGGING is featured in FOUR fabulous abstract patterns and exciting color ways. Each option can be styled with other RBX Active products and will also match up well with existing wardrobe looks. The 21 1/2 inch inseam legging is machine washable, 88 poly, 12 spandex. Sizes range S-M-L-XL fitting 4/6, 6/8. 8/10, 12-14 respectively (note--RBX is one of just a few brands that provides a full assortment for size XL). It WICKS which is important for working out since that means that the fabric pulls moisture away from the skin to keep the body dry. It has FOUR-WAY STRETCH providing all-over flex, maintaining its shape. FLAT LOCK SEAMS deliver smooth lines and prevents chafing. It is FADE RESISTANT so that vibrant colors stay bright, wash after wash.



Opinions/Wear: A quick mention, the flash was reduced in the images so the print would show up clear. If you look at the image with only the two RBX tags, that's where you'll see the exact color. I was honestly impressed with the amazing fabric quality and construction. The leggings are durable yet streamlined and body conscious. It felt like wearing a comfortable second skin. The four way stretch fabric didn't become loose like other flimsy leggings. After I took them off they retained their shape.  I also love how the fabric pulls moisture away from the body when working out. This wick action feature is a better alternative to wearing baggy sweatpants that sticks on your skin with moisture. I'm loving the military green color mixed with bold orange but they're available in different options. It's nice to know the fade resistant fabric will keep the color fresh and new after multiple washings. The stylish capris are equally great to wear while I'm relaxing on the weekend with a cool tee shirt and comfy sneakers. I would recommend them to active people on the go for the quality, comfort, and affordable low price. Plus if you use the special code ACTIVE25 you save 25% off your order with free shipping over $50! An awesome bargain. I hope you guy's take advantage of the savings.
