Adovia facial lift and firm serum

Once we get older everything starts to line and droop and sag. Your body really starts to look its age and worn out and tired. There are so many products out there that claim they can help with the aging process. Most of the products you find are oils and with my experience oils cause acne. Acne may make you feel younger but as a grown woman I do not enjoy having acne. So when this product came for me to review I was a little concerned that I would end up dried out and the pimples would follow. When I opened it up though I noticed that it is in fact not an oil. This is a cream. It has very nice texture and it has a pleasent smell. When I squirted it on my finger and started applying it, it went on very smooth. I also noticed that I could use less of this product and still have more coverage then I was getting with the oils. It did not dry my face out and the results seemed to be starting overnight instead of in weeks like the oils. My makeup even seemed to go on better after using this product. On a side note I would like to say that the customer service with this company is amazing. They shipped me the product and it either got lost in the mail or was stolen. When I emailed them to ask about it they immediately emailed me back and expressed concern that I had not received it and dropped a new one in the mail. Seeing as I am just reviewing their product for free they could of just told me I was s.o.l but they didn't. They wanted to make it right and I want to say thank you to them for that because I absolutely love this product. My face has never looked better. Even though I am only 31 it really improved the look of my face overall. I have used this since I received it and I am in love with it, the other products, and the company! I defintely reccomend this to women at any age. Whether you have wrinkles or not it will improve your overqll appearance and the way you feel about yourself. We are all beautiful, sometimes we just need a little bottle to make ourselves pop and our self esteems fly out the roof. I haven't felt this beautiful in a long time and I want everyone to learn about and enjoy these benefits for themselves. I recieved one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

coppertone

As kids we all remember going out and playing in the sun and having an awesome time. I personally do not remember ever using sunblock. I got a few sunburns but not many. Our family just is not into the whole sunblock craze. Since I had kids though I have been using sunblock on them. I still didn't get into the whole hype myself. So once I found out that I was going to review sunblock through Bzzagent, I was happy that the kids would maybe find a new product that worked better then the stuff we were using. To me when you think sunblock I think all blocks are created equal and they will all do what they claim. What I found out in using the Coppertone is that that is not the case at all. I decided that we were going to try the coppertone, yes even me. A day after we all tried what we had been using and compare the two. What I noticed right away is Coppertone goes on so much smoother and easier then the other stuff. It didn't leave you greasy and there were no more weird white streaks. Another thing I love is the fact that it comes in the normal lotion and a spray bottle. It seems like everyone is going to this new craze and I never understood it until now. I thought that you wouldn't get the same coverage using a spray instead of the lotion but I have to say I fell in love with the spray. I feel it goes on so much quicker and it does provide amazing coverage. The bottles are both new and fresh looking. I expected the spray to clog but it held up nicely. So after my experiment I noticed a few things. After looking at the pictures on the first day I saw that there was still a little bit of redness even after using the sunblock and that we had to reapply more often with it. The coppertone somehow took the redness from the first day away. After looking the next day instead of seeing redness I actually saw a pretty good tan going on for all of us. I was amazed by how much faster Coppertone ca be applied and how much better it worked overall compared to the brand we were using on the kids. It even made me look at sunblock in a whole new light. So much so ghat I have started using it every time I am going to be outside for an extended period of time. The true test came when I had my husband and his buddies try it out on their 12 hour long kayaking adventure. The last time they came home they all looked like lobsters. Not one of them remembered to bring the sunblock and with the sun beating down all day it was a huge mistake on their parts. They are men so they were hesitant at first but when they saw they could almost disguise it as bug spray they let me have my way. They went on their trip and the sunblock went too and imagine their surprise when they came home not as lobsters but as nice tanned men. Working in a factory all week will leave you pretty white so they were excited. I was 3excited that it worke3d for them and thqat I didnt have to care for lobster man. In conclusion, if you want a sunblock that actually works you need to get some Coppertone and try it out. It will work and you won't be sorry. The only issue is it is a little pricey but it seems like everything that really works these days is. So suck it up and shell out that money and keep you and yours from turning into a lobster family. Not to mention protecting you from skin cancer. I use this product and yes I got it for free but I would have no problems stating if it was useless or didnt work. If you dont know what bzzagent is check it out. They are an awesome company that has people try out products so that companies can get the real honest feedback about their products that they need.

Natures Best Vitamin C Serum

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When it comes to your face you really want to take care of it. I am a smoker and I really know the importance of keeping the smoker lines and wrinkles away. I am 31 I don't want to look 50 or older already. So I have been experimenting with different serums. When I heard about natures best I was excited because I had heard that name before on different products. It was comforting to know that it was a brand I had heard of.

The packaging was simple with a good color scheme and the dropper was a nice size. A ew drops was good enough for me to do my entire face, neck, and decolette area. It went in smooth and never made me feel greasy. I enjoyed the soft subtle smell as I drifited off to sleep or as I ate breakfast in the morning. I like that this product had simple easy to read instructions which made it easy to know what to do. I don't wear makeup much so I am kinds of dumb when it comes to how to use beauty products.

It brought a nice glow to my face and has made the lines and wrinkles more subtle but hasn't taken any of them away. But it is really starting to show the effects after just a few weeks. I can only imagine how nice the efrfects will be after a month or two. This product really works and I enjoyed getting to try it out for free from Natures Best and Tomoson. I do recommend this to anyone looking to ease the appearance of their lines and wrinkles in a short amount of time. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Adovia Dead Sea Mud Shampoo

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When it comes to hair we all want ours to be gorgeous. We get all the latest products to take care of it and to style it, but many people have problems with their hair and are too embarrassed to get products for those things. Some of those things include dandruff and dry itchy scalp. You have seen all the products on the market, you know the ones that you pay out the butt for and then they are not what you expect. They either work but do not make your hair smell or look good, do not work but make your hair look amazing, or just plain do not work. When you have a truly itchy scalp I suppose you really shouldn't care what your hair smelled like afterwards as long as you weren't itchy, but I for one wanted something to did both. I wanted a shampoo that kept my scalp from itching and got rid of the pesky dandruff and left my hair looking, feeling and smelling good.

So when I got picked to review this for free for nothing but my honest opinion I was really excited. I have suffered for years with dry itchy scalp and we were not in the position to buy anything special to do anything about it.

First I want to start off saying that I always thought for a product to be good it had to come from a company that I had heard of and that was well respected in the health and beauty business. I never gave newbies a chance and I should have. The Adovia family of products is an amazing line of products and there is something for everyone. So far I have seen or heard about a bar soap and a serum from this company and everyone I know are giving it rave reviews. They have great customer service and ship out very quickly. Once you place an order at Amazon.com your product will from my experience get to you in just a few days. They are a great company thats going to do amazing things in my opinion and will be around for years to come.

Now on to the shampoo! First impressions are big for me so I always look the product over to see what I think of the packaging and how well it was shipped and things like that. It came in a baggie and the top was securely held on so it would not leak. It was then placed in an oversize box so it had room to move around but not enough to get knock around a whole lot. Smart packaging says a lot about a company. To me it says they stand behind and care about their product enough that they want it to get to you safely and they want you to be able to enjoy every last bit. I get samples and freebies regularly and not once have I seen a big name company take this much care in their product. Their samples will often times come spilled out all over everything and be wasted. The big name companies already have the numbers so they could care less about a few spilled bottles but Adovia really went the extra mile and I admire and respect that.

The bottle itself is a nice size at 7.4 fl. ounces and a great deal for the price considering what it does for your hair. The sticker on it has colors that draw the eye but aren't too flashy. White blue and some silver. Its a basic sticker but gives you everything you need to know. You can tell they put more time into the actual product then they did the appearance, I wish more business were this way. The bottle is clear so you can see exactly what the product is and what it looks like and the top is an easy open top, simply push towards the back and the front pops up. It was simple to use and great for my arthritis laced fingers and hands.

I bet you are wondering whats inside the bottle. Well the shampoo is my favorite color, an amazing shade of black that shines and in the right light almost looks grey. It is a very pretty color and that got me excited right away but it has to do better then just being a pretty color.  Before using it I always read whats inside the product I am about to use on myself. Some of the amazing ingredients are Dead Sea Minerals, Vitamin E and Chamomile. Thats just what I was able to read on the front sticker. The back also includes aloe vera, salt and shea butter to name a few. I was amazed that this product had so many things in it that I actually heard of before and knew what they were. I was convinced then that even if the product failed to work, I wouldn't be putting anything toxic or bad into my hair. My favorite thing I read on the whole bottle though was just a small little section that showed the picture for Not tested on animals. In this day and age so many things are and its really nice to see a company that doesn't.

So by this time I couldn't wait to actually use it and see what I thought. So I jumped in the shower and got my hair all nice and wet and pushed the top up and spread a little in my hand. The color was even prettier and it was a good texture. It wasn't too thick and it wasn't runny it was a perfect consistency. I have long hair but like you always hear as a kid you don't need much to get it to work. It lathered up very well and spread around well in my thick hair. I left it in for a few minutes and then rinsed it out. Like all shampoos it said rpeat if necessary but I never do I feel it is a waste of the product. It rinsed out all the way and I wasn't left with any leftover shampoo. I followed up with my already owned conditioner that also has shea butter in it to stick with the ingredients that I found on this products label. When I got out and combed it I found it left my hair with far less tnagles then I usually have after cleaning my hair which was nice. I waited awhile until it was dry which was hours since I do not blow dry and have thick hair. I didn't see any of the familiar flakes and was not feeling the need to scratch my head. It really worked and helped with the dandruff and dry itchy scalp problems. It also left my hair looking and feeling beautiful. When you smell it from the bottle you don't think it will make your hair smell very good but I was surprised to find that I enjoyed the smell of my hair when it was all said and done.

Bottom line is, it is a great product that really works and I will continue to use the resat of the bottle and I do reccomend it to anyone who has dandruff and dry itchy scalp. I even reccomend it to those who don't. It leaves your hair looking far better then any other product I have tried for these reasons or a normal shampoo. I really enjoyed this product. My hair and I really thank Adovia and Tomoson for this oppurtunity. I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com.
