Product Review: +LIFEGUARD MINI 1

Hi Lovelies!

Does your cell, tablet, or e-reader run out of battery before you finish your day? I know that my last cell would run out of battery soooo quickly even when it was new. My current cell phone has significantly better battery usage, but when I’m either taking a lot of photos or during my school days recording hours of classes on end, my cell will be about ready to quit before my professors are.

+Lifeguard Mini 1 comes to the rescue by providing the ability to charge a mobile device on the go whether in a purse, school bag, or pocket. It is small and light enough to be toted around anywhere. The first time I plugged my phone into the handy little device I was amazed that it seemed to charge my LG Optimus F6 faster than via the wall charger. So I tried it again another day and same result, my phone actually charges more quickly.

So now, even if I’m at home, if I’m in a hurry to recharge my phone I’ll just use this little device since it somehow cuts down the amount of time needed to fully charge substantially! Each box comes with a device (available in silver, black, or pink), micro-usb/usb cable, and a lightning charging cable for apple devices. I don’t know if there is such thing as a lightening or speedy charging cable for android devices although I guess that isn’t truly necessary since this device is so quick!

I had been interested in purchasing a device like this for a while now, but didn’t know where to start in terms of what type of device would work best for a once or twice a week user for mainly charging my cell phone and occasionally my e-reader. So if you are someone who has days that go on much longer than the battery on your mobile devices I highly recommend checking out +Lifeguard Mini 1 (click HERE to find on Amazon). It is so easy to keep readily available for those times when the battery on your device needs rescuing! And each +Lifeguard Mini 1 can be recharged more than 800 times!!

Do you keep a car charger or extra charger around? I’ve used car chargers and had spent a LOT of time carrying a spare charger with me, know I don’t have to do either, I can just carry my +Lifeguard Mini 1! So much easier to carry around. While charging a mobile device the +Lifeguard Mini 1 displays a blue light and when the +Lifeguard Mini 1 is charging it displays a red light. When charging finishes the light shuts off. The included micro-usb/usb cable doubles both a charging cable for the device when the micro-usb side in plugged into the device (AC adapter not included) or as an android charging cable when the usb side in plugged into the device.

I’ve been really loving having mine around. I highly recommend checking the +Lifeguard Mini 1 out, plus the price is quite reasonable as well! I’ll also include some other specifications and general information below.

Product Review: Miracalis Anti-Aging Moisturizer

Hi Lovelies!

I don’t know about you, but I just absolutely LOVE daily moisturizers! I may have mentioned once or twice before that I have very dry skin. Having dry skin can extenuate fine lines and wrinkles as well as speed up the aging process. So what could be better than a product that not only does a fabulous job of moisturizing skin but also has anti-aging benefits? What if I told you that this moisturizer works great for all skin types from oily to normal to dry as well as for sensitive skin? And doesn’t cost an arm and a leg either.

What is this product? It is Miracalis Anti-Aging Moisturizer. I am loving this cream. It feels so luxurious and a little bit goes a LONG way. In fact the amount on my finger in the picture below is more than enough for my entire face and upper neck! This is a moisturizer that can be used morning or night. I tend to use this as my morning moisturizer because it absorbs in soooo quickly.

My morning beauty routine begins when I wash my face using an exfoliating face wash followed by toner and this awesome moisturizing cream. By the time I finish brushing my hair the cream has completely absorbed in and my skin is ready for me to apply makeup to it. If I do not use a good moisturizer and exfoliate, my foundation cakes every single time.

My foundation has not caked once since I began using this cream! Even when I ran out of my usual face wash, my foundation still did not cake which I credit this moisturizing cream. When I remove makeup at the end of the day my face still feels soft, silky, and moisturized!

According to their website, Miracalis Anti-Aging Moisturizer also:

RAPIDLY REDUCES YOUR WRINKLE DEPTH – Case Studies show a decrease of up to 17% after 15 days and up to 32% after 28 days!
RECAPTURE YOUR YOUTHFUL GLOW – Restores critical anti-oxidants (Vitamin E and Co-Enzyme Q10) that help shield your skin from daily abuse and return your skin to its former glory!
SAY GOODBYE TO ROUGH, CRACKED, WRINKLED SKIN – Advanced moisturizing formula helps restore your skin’s natural moisture levels and increases skin elasticity giving you a firmer, more touchable look!
PERFECT FOR ALL SKIN TYPES – Only the highest quality ingredients on the market were used in this hypoallergenic formula that is specially designed for sensitive, dry, oily, or normal skin types!

If you are looking for an excellent moisturizer that happens to also provide anti-aging benefits, I highly recommend that you check out Miracalis Anti-Aging Moisturizer (click HERE to find on Amazon).

Product Review: MY Konjac Bamboo Charcoal Sponge

Hi Lovelies!

If you are as into beauty products as I am, then you have probably heard of a certain pink egg shaped beauty sponge and its apparent wonders for applying cosmetics. But you may not have heard of its face washing, biodegradable, affordable cousin made from Konjac fibers.

In Japan, Konjac has been used as a medicinal food since the sixth century meaning people have been eating it for over 1500 years! Apparently Konjac or Konnyaku has nearly zero calories is very high in fiber and is sold as a very low cal noodle, shirataki.

MY Konjac Bamboo Charcoal sponge is a large tear drop shaped sponge. It is very hard when first taken out of the package, but softens considerably as it swells with water. And can be sanitized microwaving in a bowl of water for 1:30.

MY Konjac makes several types of sponges each perfect for varying skin needs. This one contains activated carbon along with various minerals and natural antioxidants that help absorb excess oil and “help fight acne-causing bacteria that are typically difficult to reach.”

What makes these sponges unique is that because they are made with 100% natural ingredients, these sponges can be thrown in a compost bin once one finishes using it. Each sponge will last anywhere from 2-4 months on average although exact length of time varies depending on amount of use and whether it is used alone or with face wash.

I’ve tried using this alone, with non-exfoliating (ie “gentle”) face wash, and exfoliating face wash. I have to say that I prefer to use this with non-exfoliating face wash. I find the ‘beads’ or ‘roughage’ in exfoliating face wash to get stuck in the sponge and be too harsh. And while I get a fairly good clean when using this by itself, my preference is to use a gentle face wash. I find that, that is the perfect harmony between getting a deep and not a too harsh clean.

I do not use this to remove my makeup. I prefer to use makeup removing facial wipes to face wash for removing makeup. I use this first thing in the morning as the start to my beauty routine. I love the idea of sponge that can essentially be buried in the backyard and will easily degrade back into the soil.

Way too many beauty products and products in general are made with materials that do not biodegrade in any reasonable amount of time [having a half life of 500,000 years or so does NOT count[. I love that this sponge is made with organic ingredients*. I wish more products were made and packaged (both primary and secondary packaging) with many more sustainable materials such as biodegradable ones. Wouldn’t it be neat if one day we could literally just bury a product’s packaging in the backyard and when one went to check on it in 6 months, to find nothing there! [I took AP Environmental Science in high school along with being a biological sciences major]

So if you are looking for a 100% all natural** facial cleansing sponge that works great, doesn’t require the use of face wash, and is quite reasonably priced then go check out MY Konjac Bamboo Charcoal Sponge (click HERE to purchase on Amazon).

Do you or have you used a Konjac sponge before? What do you use when you wash your face (ie a washcloth, your hands, special facial cleansing mitt, etc)? I’d LOVE to hear about your skincare regime in the comments before!

Product Review: Adovia Moisturizing Day Cream

Hi Lovelies!

Have I mentioned before that I LOVE Adovia products? I love using products made in Israel, plus ALL of the Adovia products I’ve had the pleasure of trying have been truly great products! I have dry skin. My skin is doesn’t have a dry season, its dry ALL the time.

wpid-cam07758_20140927203602142.jpgMy skin is so dry that if I don’t use an exfoliating face wash AND a moisturizer or two before I apply foundation, the foundation cakes terribly. So I’m always on the look out for a moisturizer that absorbs quickly, moisturizes my skin, and isn’t too strongly scented.
wpid-cam07760_20140927204145384.jpgAdovia’s Moisturizing Day Cream (to find on Amazon click HERE) easily hits all three of my ‘requirements’ and more. I love how thick and creamy theirs is. It just feels so luxurious to apply. I also like that there is a secondary cover on the cream which I use as a second barrier to prevent the cream from getting inside the top.

wpid-cam07761.jpgThe cream is so moisturizing that a little goes a long way! I’ve been using this daily for a few weeks and still have tons left which makes this an even better buy since it’ll easily last me a couple more months. Like the rest of Adovia’s products, this one contains Dead Sea Minerals as well as aloe vera and chamomile.

wpid-cam07766.jpg I’ve heard that having oily skin is actually helpful in maintaining younger looking skin whereas dry skin can actually speed up skin looking older sooner. While my younger sister dislikes her oily skin, skin produces oils to naturally moisturize ones skin. I have been told that I look much younger than my actually age and I’d like to keep my skin looking young. So I’ve been big on using anti-aging products along with using moisturizers regularly.

wpid-cam07768.jpgIs there really a difference between a day cream and a night cream since both are moisturizers? From experience, I would say yes, there is a difference. Night creams tend to be thicker and heavier. Whereas day creams tend to be lighter and absorb more quickly. Is there a reason to use both? Yes, I would say there is especially if you are someone like me with perpetually dry skin.

wpid-cam07769.jpgAnd like every other Adovia product I’ve tried, the price is quite reasonable especially for such a great product. If you are looking for a moisturizing day cream, then try Adovia’s Moisturizing Day Cream (to purchase on Amazon click HERE).

Product Review: InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil



Hi Lovelies!
Taking off ones makeup at the end of a long day can be a chore especially when long wearing makeup is stubborn and doesn’t want to come off. I hate when face wash doesn’t remove all my eye makeup and I’m left with mascara or eyeliner that then stains my sensitive eye area. Or when my skin gets red and irritated because I scrubbed too hard.


What if I told you there was a much easier way to remove your makeup? A way that is as simple as a few wipes across your face AND is good for your skin! No harsh astringents to be found and it is budget friendly. Interested?


InstaNatural’s Deep Cleansing Facial Oil does all that and more. In addition to removing makeup this multitasking facial oil also cleans away impurities and moisturizes the skin.
To use just squirt a dime size amount on a clean cloth or cotton pad (a little goes a long way) and wipe on face. Then just use warm water to rinse away! I found that essentially ALL my makeup came off as I applied the oil. It was quite impressive as to how easily my makeup came off, especially my eyeliner and mascara.


To give you an idea of the cleaning powers of this facial oil I let two different mascaras, several eyeliners, lip liners, lipsticks, and a brow product dry on the back of my hand. I squirted a couple pumps of oil onto a cotton pad. Then I wiped the deep cleansing oil over my hand with only a couple easy swipes all of the dried makeup came right off.


On top of doing such a great job of easily removing makeup, it moisturizing, and is budget friendly too! I also appreciate that all the ingredients are easy to pronounce. I’m including the ingredient list below in case trying to read it off the photo of the label is a bit too difficult. And I really like InstaNatural’s new logo! Not that I disliked anything about the old logo, I do think the new one definitely looks sharper.

If you are in the market for a hard working multitasker then check out InstaNatural Deep Cleansing Facial Oil (click HERE to find on Amazon).
