Strivectin Instant Line blurfector

Strivectin Instant Line blurfector

This is a new product to help with blurring fine lines. You can apply this on its own or under makeup. I personally use it under my makeup and let it sit for a couple of minutes before applying my foundation. I notice my skin looks smoother and more youthful. My pores are less noticeable around my nose and cheeks. 

The consistency is a bit thicker than a lotion and is a whipped consistency. It glides on easily, however I like to tap over my problem areas to make sure my fine lines have a better chance of staying filled. 

Description from Strivectin "Optical blurring microspheres scatter light to blur wrinkles and imperfections while also extending makeup wear. Paired with NIA-114 to seal in skincare benefits and strengthen the skin barrier".

Things I really like about Strivectin Line BlurFector Instant Blurring primer:

  • squeeze tube
  • Easy to dispense
  • Glides on 
  • Fills in fine lines and pores

Available in a 1 oz bottle - $39

Strivectin NEW Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum

Strivectin has a new Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum 

First let me tell you the important details per Strivectin: 

Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum: Each powerful pump of this superpower serum fuses Hyaluronic Acid and our patented NIA-114™ to visibly plump thirsty skin. 

Skin care is a very important part of my beauty routine. Prevention is key and being someone who is over 40 years old, I think I have been doing a good job at preventing aging in my skin. Strivectin has been part of my skin care for years! This is a great new addition to their product line.

I have been using Hyaluronic Acid Serums for a couple years now. I heard about it being and amazing and magical product that can help hydrate and maintain hydration in your skin. It can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. This helps plump your skin and reduce the look of fine lines. It does help my skin stay more hydrated throughout the day and not dry out. 
This serum comes in a dual chamber container and there are multiple types of hyaluronic acids in this serum. 6 serums mix when dispensed. I use this after cleansing in the morning, before bed and I prefer to have my skin still damp. I find that having damp skin helps out, at least in my mind haha. This glides on easily and I moisturize right after to help maintain the moisture and hydration to my face. 

I love trying out new products that they come out with and this hyaluronic serum is a great addition to their skin care line. 

Here is a little more tis bits about their new Hyaluronic Dual-Response Serum:
1. There are six types of Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate skin and lock in moisture
2. Visibly plumps skin and smoothes the look of fine lines and wrinkles
3. Improves skin’s ability to retain moisture

Wunderbrow review

I have heard a lot of pretty amazing things about Wunderbrow. This is the "miracle" brow product that will not fade away. Well this is what I have hear.
Here are the details:

WUNDERBROW - Eyebrow Gel

$22.00 for a 3Gm tube
Available in 5 shades. 
On the Wunderbrow website it says that this is "Semi Permanent". The claims is that this will last for days and only take approximately 2 minutes to apply. 

It comes with a spoolie to comb out and blend the product into your brows and the WunderBrow 1-Step Gel.

With WunderBrow           Without Wunderbrow 
This was a pretty neat test for me.
I have very sparse brows and this definitely made my brows appear fuller and did last the whole day. I do have a pretty rough facial cleansing regime and scrubbing my brows is part of it so as for the lasting for days.... That did not apply for me. I can say it does last through the hot humid Florida weather. The beach and swimming is no match for the Wunderbrow either. It lasted right through the fun in the sun.

The wand is a brush (like a mini paint brush) It would have been nice for it to have at least a stiff angled applicator. It is nearly impossible to apply this with the brush it comes with in the tube. The way I apply this is with a small angle brush and then comb it out with the spoolie. Re-apply till you get your desired look.
I would recommend to apply a small amount at a time since this is very pigmented and can get a bit out of control if you do not pay attention.

A Healthier Chip?

Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips

Beans are the primary ingredient in this snack which is great for the health-conscious snackers. Beanfields chips are vegan, gluten-free, allergy friendly, and made with non-GMO ingredients.
This is a great alternative to the typical "corn" chips. They are crunchy with a slightly different texture and a bit more dense too. The flavored varieties have a bold taste and there are also a variety beans. Navy beans and black beans with brown rice. With some varieties (plain) only having 5-6 ingredients that you can actually read and know what they are. No need to google it. I feel very comfortable offering these as a snack to my kids. 
With 7 varieties of Beanfields Bean & Rice Chips to choose from I think you can find a flavor that will appeal to anyone in the family. 
My favorite is the nacho and pico de gallo. 

The kids had big opinions. 
Texture: Some did not like the texture, while others were not bothered. "It's different and not like other chips"
Taste: This is where everyone had an opinion. The most liked was Nacho, then pico de gallo. The lease favorite was barbecue and most comments were it was too strong and not like barbecue. 
Overall: The kids enjoyed trying a new chip and getting a little education on a healthier brand, however unfortunately they still prefer other types of chips. As far as the adults, we are a bit more reasonable and try to eat healthier versions to stop the craving of our bad treats and this was a nice variety and substitution to the usual. 

What is the real difference? 
I did a comparison the the Beanfield Nacho and the other triangle tortilla chip.

Clarisonic miaFIT Review

I would like to first start by saying I have never used a facial cleansing brush before. This is the first and only facial cleansing brush I have used. This is my thoughts and I have been using this for several weeks now and have an opinions on this and well....

This was a great kit which came with the miaFIT, a charging base, the Urban Decay pore perfecting completion primer potion and 2 brush heads. There is one softer brush head (pink) and the other a bit more coarse (blue).

My usual skin care routine consisted of using a facial cloth then jumping into the shower to finish cleaning my face. I would use a variety of cleansers and rub with my hands. I would use an exfoliating scrub several times a week. The only thing I would have to do after showering is use eye makeup wipes to remove the additional liner that was hard to remove, yet easier to remove after a nice hot shower versus rubbing before the shower. 
I thought I was doing a great job. On my first use I decided to do my regular routine and then add the Mia Fit to the mix. I was completely shocked at the dirty scrub brush! All this time I thought I was cleansing my face properly and I was so wrong!. The brush was full of left over makeup that I apparently did not remove. This was even before I scrubbed near my eyes. I decided to cleanse my eyes as well and what do you know...no raccoon eyes after the shower!

How it Works: 
FIRST! Yes you can take it in the shower!! No worries the whole device can get wet.
After charging on the base for at least 18 hours..

There are 2 settings. a quick and more deep cleansing setting. Pressing the button 1 or 2 times for the setting you want. That setting will be saved until you change it again.

The 1st setting is quick and the brush actually buzzes to let you know when to change from section to section on your face. It will automatically shut off after all sections are complete. The 2nd setting is the same however each section is a little longer for a deeper cleansing with the harder brush. This is the setting I typically use daily. 

I add my favorite cleanser on the wet brush and done! I would recommend not using a lotion like cleanse since it tends to stay on the brush and is very difficult to clean your brush out. It tends to stay kind of stained with makeup until your next few cleanings with another cleanser. 

I do prefer the blue brush over the pink. I think the roughness and firmness of the brush felt more thorough in my opinion. 

This is a small, compact and very simple to use. It works amazingly well.
I honestly didn't believe the hype. I now realize why it is so loved and talked about.
Available at ULTA, SEPHORA and clarisonic.com

As for the Urban Decay Pore Perfecting facial primer: 
The packaging it very cute, however I would like for it to have a top that could be used to stand the product up with. It would be better, especially when you get down to the end of the tube. 
This has a silky, creamy, yet sticky consistency. The tackiness is a bit strange and does help with pore minimizing. It is a bit more thick and takes a bit more effort to smooth evenly to the face. It works fine with prolonging the wear time of my foundation. I have others that I prefer more, but everyone has a preference to consistencies. You may prefer this over another. Good thing is that it is easy to get a travel size to try out any Urban decay primer. It is very affordable.
