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).

Product Review: Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream

Product Review: Body Merry Age Defense Eye
Hi Lovelies!

Now that I’m in my 30′s I feel like I am at that age where I should be beginning to use anti-aging skincare. I try to take care of my skin (which is the largest organ in the body). I wear sunscreen when I’m going to be outside for any extended amount of time as research has shown that tanning also can cause skin cancer, not just sunburns. And I have pretty dry skin so I try to always use exfoliating face wash which helps to make my makeup look less cakey. I also have gotten sooo much better at using Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid serums as well as some sort of moisturizer. But I haven’t been so good at using any products specifically for the ocular (eye) region.

Enter in Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream (click HERE to find on Amazon) which claims to be a one stop solution for helping to alleviate dark circles, wrinkles, and puffiness. I can’t make an assessment as to whether it helps with wrinkles as I don’t have many around my eyes. I can say that it does seem to help with dark circles and puffiness. But what I’m personally most interested in is prevention. 
I do very much like that the cream absorbs into the skin very quickly and isn’t at all greasy feeling. I like that it contains Witch Hazel which has been a favorite skincare ingredient of mine since I was a teenager. Along with Witch Hazel this cream contains Organic Aloe, Sunflower Oil, Botanical Hyaluronic acid, Cocoa Butter, Vitamins C + E + B5, Rose hip oil, Jojoba oil, Coconut oil, Beeswax, Cranberry, Licorice, Flaxseed oil, Evening Primrose Oil, Lavender, Chamomile, Glycolic acid, Cucumber, Green Tea, Blueberry, Oregon Grape, Coenzyme Q10, Lemon, Lemongrass, Apple, Sugarcane, Grape-seed Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, and Raspberry seed oil plus quite a few others! Wow what an awesome combination of healthy oils, and extracts. 
Many people will be happy that this product contains Natural and Organic ingrediants that are designed to work on ALL skin types from oily to dry and does NOT contain any parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. Body Merry Age Defense Eye Cream is made in a cruelty-free FDA registered & GMP compliant facility in the USA.
I like that this eye cream comes packaged in an easy to use and mess free pump. The only thing is a full pump extrudes too much product.  I found half a pump was the correct amount (for me anyways) of cream for both eyes. The bottle contains a one full ounce which is actually very generous for an eye cream since a little goes such a long way. Most bottles of foundation are one ounce so I could see this bottle lasting at least a few months if used once a day. Also it is worth noting that there is a moderate scent to this product. I happen to like the way this one’s scent. 

Another plus is that ALL Body Merry products have a 90 day 100% satisfaction guarantee complete with full refund no questions asked! So what do you have to lose? And the current price on Amazon is $19.99! Why spend sooo much more on an eye cream that may or may not be more effective? If you want to try this Age Defense Eye Cream for yourself, just click HERE to find it on Amazon.

Do you have an anti-aging skincare routine? What do you think is a good age to began using anti-aging products? Do you have a favorite eye cream that I should check out?  I’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!

Hope everyone has been enjoying their Labor Day (if in the USA) weekend!

Product Review: 100% Pure Ultra Premium Emu Oil by InstaNatural

Product Review: 100% Pure Ultra Premium Emu Oil by InstaNatural
Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Hi Lovelies!

Ever since I first tried Tarte’s Maracuja oil last December, I’ve been into using face, body, and hair oils like crazy! So when the opportunity arose to try InstaNatural’s 100% Pure Ultra Premium Emu Oil I jumped at the chance.


I was quite pleased when I saw how large the bottle is for the price. For comparison I’ll use Tarte’s Maracuja oil (I do realize both are different types of oils, but both are used for the same purposes). According to the largest size bottle of Tarte’s Maracuja oil  contains 3.4 oz and sells for whopping $75 while on InstaNatural’s Emu Oil comes in a 4 oz bottle and is currently $22.77 (with a list price of $39). [Click HERE to find on Amazon]


Why spend more than triple (using the current price of Amazon) when there is a product that can work just as well for a fraction of the price. I also like that the InstaNatural version has a pump compared to the dropper that the Tarte version comes with which can be messier and/or more awkward to use. 


I like the silky texture, no scent, and quick absorption of this oil. I have naturally curly (and quite thick)  hair which literally just drinks up any leave in conditioner or moisturizer I put in. I find adding half a dozen (to a dozen depending on how dry my hair is) pumps each morning when I’m brushing my hair leaves my hair silky, soft, and shiny, but never greasy. 

I’ll also use this as a facial moisturizer after I wash my face, but before I apply makeup. I squirt one to two pumps into the palm of my hand, pat lightly together, and then rub oil onto my face. I’ll let the oil absorb for a few minutes while I’m brushing my hair. Then I’ll blot off any oil let on the surface before beginning my makeup routine. Since I started using facial oils, I haven’t had to apply a layer or two of moisturizer on my chronically dry skin.

Whether you have or haven’t gotten on the facial, hair, body oil bandwagon, now might just be the time to get aboard! Right now, you can purchase InstaNatural’s 100% Pure Ultra Premium Emu Oil on Amazon (just click HERE) for only $22.77 for a generous 4 oz. size bottle!

Have you used any facial, hair, body oils? If so which ones? If not, is it something you are interested in trying? Please let me know below in the comments.
