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!
