Review: LIFELINE Skincare #LIFELINE #Skincare

(product photos courtesy of www.lifelineskincare.com)


How does one use scientific breakthroughs to craft superior anti-aging skin care? At Lifeline, they began with their own patented stem cell skin care discovery. While researching cures for diabetes and Parkinson's Disease, a team of biotech scientists discovered a powerful human stem cell extract that improved the look of aging skin. This discovery has created a new era in anti-aging skin care products. They continued to build on that stem cell success, using their advanced absorption technology to deliver specialized ingredients more effectively through our expanded skin care line.

The Power of Human Stem Cells

Their founding team of scientists discovered a new class of stem cells that promise to change health care, and skin care. They created the first non-embryonic human stem cells. These cells can proliferate and live almost indefinitely. And with this discovery, stem cell cures for incurable diseases, like Parkinson's Disease, liver disease, and blindness, now look promising. Their unique patented process creates human stem cell extracts from unfertilized eggs, rather than embryos. The parent company, International Stem Cell Corporation (ISCO) is the only source for these ground-breaking stem cell skin serums. ISCO has pioneered a new class of human pluripotent stem cells derived from unfertilized eggs. These stem cells, known as human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSC) retain all of the advantages required to generate targeted therapeutic tissues for research and regenerative therapies.
New absorption technologies deliver advanced anti-aging ingredients like never before. Lifeline Skin Care products are more easily absorbed by the skin, because of the small molecular technology. Recently, their scientists have found a way to harness small molecular technology, allowing specialized ingredients to be absorbed into skin more easily and infinitely faster because of their low molecular weight. These micro-molecules work to firm and tone, awakening dormant collagen and more. 

Breakthrough skin care helps fund research:
The purchasing of Lifeline Skin Care products helps to fund further research into finding cures and treatments for:

• Parkinson's Disease and other diseases of the nervous system

Review: DERMA E Essentials Illuminating Rosehip & Cranberry Face Oil Pumpkin Seed Oil #DERMAE #Essentials #Illuminating #RoseshipandCranberry #FaceOil #PumpkinSeedOil

(product photo courtesy of www.dermae.com)


1 fl.oz./30 mL $16.50
Subscribe: $14.85
Facial oils have become all the rage in the skincare world. And with good reason. It doesn't matter what kind of skin type you have, you can use a facial oil. Even if you have oily skin. The oil on you skin (sebum) is different from the oil in these facial oils. These are botanical oils that come from plants. They are molecular-wise smaller than what is on our skin. The oils penetrate our skin deep enough to make a difference and sink right into the skin, hydrating it and giving it the moisture it needs so that your skin feels better. 

This particular facial oil called the DERMA E Essentials Illuminating Rosehip & Cranberry Facial Oil Pumpkin Seed Oil is a great oil for normal skin to dry skin. Applied after cleansing and toning, it sinks into skin and leaves it feeling hydrated, luminous, healthy-looking, brightened, and more youthful looking.This is due to the plant botanicals, the Rosehip Oil (which brightens), the Cranberry Oil and organic Pumpkin Seed Oils that provide a more youthful glow. Skin will look younger, feel younger and have an overall appearance of youth. Such as radiance, plump skin, little to no fine lines or wrinkles and very little pigmentation. 

To use, apply 2-3 drops to hands and then massage onto clean face in the morning and evening. In the morning, make sure to follow up with a SPF of 30 or more. Sunscreen is one of the main anti-aging ingredients that helps prevent fine lines and wrinkles as well as hyperpigmentation. In the evening follow with a moisturizing cream if needed. If not, use just the oil.

I really, really like this facial oil because it sinks into my skin, leaving it feeling soft, supple, brightened and ready for makeup or ready for skincare. I like to use gadgets to help get the skincare into my skin as much as I could have been. They really help to get the skincare into the skin without wasting it. This oil is a great one because it does what is says it is gong to do. It does not make promises that it is not going to keep. 

DERMA E is avialable online from www.dermae.comwww.ulta.com and www.dermstore.com. It is also available in outlets across the country. Check the website for details on where to find the brand.

Review: DERMA E Essentials Radiance Toner #DermaE #Essentials #RadianceToner #toner #glycolicacid

(product photo courtesy of www.dermae.com)


6 fl.oz./175 mL $14.95
Subscribe Every 30 days: $13.46
People always ask me if they need toner. It is kind of a tricky answer. It honestly depends on how your cleanser is, your skin type and if you like your skin to feel really clean. Toners do more than that. They also prepare the skin for what is to come: they prep the skin by restoring its pH level and on their own, they have ingredients in them that are wonderful, they prepare the skin for the following skincare products and can change the skin and make it feel great. 

That brings me to DERMA E's Essentials Radiance Toner. This toner is more than just water with a little bit of rosewater in it. It has glycolic acid to remove extraneous dead skin cells. It is alcohol free to tone, tighten and brighten for a soft, smooth and luminous appearance. The glycolic acid helps to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells for younger looking skin, to brighten up the skin,and for a younger-looking complexion. An exceptional blend of botanicals such as Rooibos and Rosehip extracts help to revive skin for a fresh, radiant complexion. 

DERMA E is ethical beauty. They are committed to your health, well-being and the natural environment. That is whey they make eco-ethical skincare. Their skincare is cruelty-free, GMO free, gluten-free, soy-free, recyclable and wind energy certifiable. Their products are all natural and as organic as they can be.

To use the toner: saturate a cotton pad with the toner. Sweep gently around the face, neck, and decolleté; being careful to avoid the eye area. Use in the morning and in the evening to prep skin for your favorite DERMA E moisturizer.

This toner is absolutely AMAZING. The glycolic acid in it brightens up the skin in no time, leaving very little hyperpigmentation in its wake. That is the second ingredient on the bottle. So it is not there to play. It takes care of melasma too. Use this daily and in a few weeks your skin will look great. Makes sure to use ti 2x a day though. And is has a beautiful rose aroma that makes it smell wonderful too, just like the other DERMA E Essentials items. The Rooibos and Rosehip also help to make the complexion bright and beautiful too. 

DERMA E is avialable online from www.dermae.com, www.ulta.com and www.dermstore.com. It is also available in outlets across the country. Check the website for details on where to find the brand.

Review: Belli Anti-Blemish Facial Wash #Belli #AntiBlemishFacialWash #Pregnancy #Cleanser

(product photo courtesy of www.belliskincare.com)

6.5 fl.oz./191mL $22.00
Belli Beauty is a line marketed toward women in the bloom of pregnancy. They have many products and I was able to try their cleanser, the Anti-Blemish Facial Wash. This cleanser is a pure face wash that leaves skin clear and refined, without over-drying or any irritation. It contains Lactic Acid (found naturally in the body but also produced by milk) that gently and effectively cleanses and exfoliates acne prone skin. Lemon peel oil is a natural anti-bacterial and skin brightener, which helps to fight off melasma that occurs during pregnancy. Green tea extract and cucumber are rich in antioxidants, always good to have to fight off free-radicals. This cleanser is FREE of salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and benzoyl peroxide, common acne fighting ingredients that can result in over-drying and irritation and should also be avoided during pregnancy. 

Anti-Blemish Facial Wash is a favorite of those struggling with blemishes, sensitive skin, or breakouts from any cause that includes hormonal changes, such as: puberty, pregnancy, birth control, menopause and menstruation. It is gentle and effective, but does not strip the skin of its natural protective barrier, leaving the natural lipids in the skin to help keep skin moisturized and hydrated. You can also use cleanser as an intensive facial mask by applying a thin layer all over your face and leaving it on for 5 minutes..

It is OB/GYN and Dermatologist recommended. And the cleanser is allergy tested, paraben-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free, with no articfical dyes or fragrances. Also, it has been medically researched to avoid ingredients that may be harmful during pregnancy or nursing.

How To Use: Gently apply cleanser onto a lightly damp face or body. Then massage for 30-60 seconds. Rinse and pat dry. Use morning and night. It may also be left on for 5 minutes as an intensive mask.

Belli Beauty also suggests using their other products to help with your skin issues but most importantly is the Pure Radiance Facial Sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection. It helps avoid melasma. Make sure to wear at least a SPF 30 daily during your pregnancy. And it should be a mineral sunscreen if possible. Mineral sunscreens are safer. 

I like this cleanser and have found it to be extremely reliable and gentle on the skin yet it does help fight off acne. I don't think it would fight off extreme acne, but moderate to light acne would be good for this product. You do have to make sure you are using other products like a scrub and a sulphur acne treatment to help with individual blemishes too. When you are pregnant hormones go crazy and you never know how your skin is going to be. It could be calm and glowing or crazy with blemishes. And it could change easily. Be prepared though and make sure to use safe ingredients. 

Belli Beauty is available online at www.belliskincare.com, www.ulta.com, www.dermstore.com, www.buybuybaby.com, www.motherhood.com, www.skinstore.com and www.amazon.com.

Review: philosophy purity made simple micellar cleansing water & pore extractor mask #philosophy #puritymadesimple #micellarcleansingwater #poreextractormask

(product photos courtesy of www.philosophy.com)

3.4 fl.oz./100mL $12.00 
Micellar cleansers are all the rage right now. They have been around for a little while but they have just now been perfected. What is a micellar cleanser? Well, it is a cleanser that has these tiny oil molecules in it that are combined with water and the oil molecules are actually suspended in the water. Cool, huh? Science at work! The micelles, as they are called, are actually multi-action, they perform multiple duties. 

How and why do they work? Micelle molecules work together to trap, then lift makeup away from the face and draw out impurities. They grab the makeup, oil and debris on the face and draw it up into the micelles and then lift it up onto the cotton pad and leave the face feeling soft, supple, toned, refreshed and clean. No need to rinse or cleanse any further. How do you use the cleanser? Easy! Just saturate a cotton pad with the cleanser and clean your entire face and eyes with it and it will take off all of your makeup, even the waterproof kind. 

I love micellar cleansers because at night I am really tired and lazy and this is an easy way to cleanse the skin without having to go through the process of using a cleanser with water. It saves one whole step and a whole lot of time. And my skin is really clean. The philosophy purity made simple micellar cleanser is especially good. I have found that it does a great job of cleansing the skin and not leaving anything behind. It comes in two sizes, a 3.4 fl.oz. ($12.00) and a 6.7 fl.oz. ($22.00). 

2.5 fl.oz./75mL $18.00
Do you suffer from blackheads (comedones)? Most people do. Essentially all they are is sebum that gets stuck in the hair follicle (pore) and oxidizes, turning that black color. They can get quite large as the follicle fills with sebum. The best way to get rid of them is to apply a mask that has an exfoliant that will help clean out the pores and a clay that will help draw up the sebum so that it is not stuck in the pores. This mask says that in two uses you will see virtually blackhead free skin. This mask exfoliates dull, dry skin and draws out impurities. 

The philosophy purity made simple pore extractor mask contains purifying white clay, salicylic acid and natural exfoliants. The creamy-rich mask draws out impurities, scrubs away blackheads and shrinks the look of pores. After using this mask skin looks and feels smooth and deep-cleaned; pores look less visible and blackhead-free. Skin is left looking refreshed, glowing and appears virtually blackhead free*. 98% of women agreed their skin felt smooth and soft with a fresh look and feel*. 93% of women agreed their skin felt deep-cleaned and pores look un-clogged*. (*2-week self assessment study, 56 women ages 20-35, 2x per week usage) 

What is the best way to use this mask? To use, gently massage onto clean, dry skin focusing on the T-Zone and oily areas such as the nose, chin and forehead. Leave on skin for 5-10 minutes or until the clay is completely dry. Rinse with warm water. For deeper exfoliation, increase the massage intensity when applying and while removing with water, perform a second massage. It is recommended to use this mask at least twice a week. 

This mask was voted as a 2017 Allure Best of Beauty Award Winner. I think it is one of the best blackhead masks I have ever used. It definitely works. Lately my skin is almost void of them as I am older but I still have some. And this mask got rid of them, immediately. I was very happy. 

philosophy is available through the following locations: www.philosophy.comwww.sephora.comwww.beauty.comwww.ulta.com and at SEPHORA and Ulta brick and mortar stores as well as at various department stores.

Review: Britney Spears Maui Fantasy Eau de Toilette #BritneySpears #MauiFantasy

(product photos courtesy of www.store.britneyspears.com)

3.3 fl.oz./100mL $40.00
Britney Spears new fragrance Maui Fantasy is an exquisite escape to Maui. The 1.7 fl.oz./100mL Eau de Toilette Spray has top notes of Bird of Paradise, Pink Grapefruit and Passion Fruit. It has middle notes of Hibiscus Petals, Cyclamen, Orange Blossom and Hawaiian Monoi (gardenia). It finishes with bottom notes of Vanilla, Coconut, Blue Musk, White Amber and Blonde Woods. It is in the floral family of fragrances. 

The scent is reminiscent of a night at the beach. When you first spray on the fragrance the floral notes hit you, especially the Pink Grapefruit. Then you get the middle notes of Orange Blossom and Hawaiian Monoi. Which smell very sexy by the way. Finally it settles down to the Blue Musk and White Amber.  All of the other notes are there, but to me they are not as prominent. The scent is great for any season, even winter. I say even winter, because even though it is a summer floral, it is a great scent to have in the winter to remind you of the summer season ahead. It allows you to think about the months ahead of you, the warmth coming: the sand on your toes, the warm sun on your face, drinking tropical drinks and having fun on the beach. I LOVE this fragrance for its ability to do this. 

Right now I am wearing it and I smell the Blue Musk and it is so lovely. It is an adorable fragrance. Really nice. And it has a great price point for a holiday gift. The holidays are approaching and this would make a great holiday gift at this price for a wife, mother, sister, friend, daughter, or girlfriend. 

Britney Spears Maui Fantasy retails for $40.00 and is available online at http://store.britneyspears.com/maui-fantasy-perfume.html.

Review: Alba Botanica Items For The Face #AlbaBotanica #dobeautiful

(product photos courtesy of www.albabotanica.com)

Recently I received some items from Alba Botanica to try out and review. I have been wanting to try the line for some time now, so I was very happy to get my hands on some of the items they have. Here are reviews on the items I tried. All of the products have vegetarian ingredients, are not animal tested, have no synthetic fragrances, no artificial colors, have no harsh sulfates, parabens or phthalates. 

6 fl.oz./177mL 
This face wash contains zit-zapping 2% salicylic acid and willow bark extract. If your pores are clogged with debris and sebum then this is the cleanser to break them free. It is extremely effective and lathers to unclog the gunk from the pores, helping to banish existing blemishes and to prevent new ones from forming. All you have to do is apply twice daily, add some water, later and rinse. It's maximum strength, oil-free, dermatologist-tested and non-comedogenic. This cleanser has proven results: fights breakouts even after you rinse and 70% tested saw clearer skin in just 7 days*. (*based on consumer evaluation)

I love this cleanser. It deeply cleanses the skin and leaves it feeling extremely clean, fresh and ready to take on the day. Do not use around the eyes though. 

8 oz./227g
This is a very powerful, effective scrub that is botanically based. It is dual-purposed face and body that is tough on backne but gentle enough for daily facial cleansing. This scrub has been formulated with powerful but proven zit-zappers such as salcylic acid and willow bark extract plus ground walnut shell. It buffs away dirt, oil, and pore clogging dead skin cells. This product helps banish breakouts for visibly clearer skin without over irritation. It is maximum strength, oil-free, dermatologist tested and noncomedogenic. What has been proven is that this fights breaksouts even after you rinse and 80% tested saw clearer skin throughout the day*. (*based on consumer evaluation)

This scrub is very nice. It is one of the better ones. This one does not use microbeads that harm the environment. It is a mild scrub, since is is for acne use, and can be use by those with active pimples. 

6 fl.oz./177 mL
Get rid of oily, blemished skin with this powerful, botanically effective cooling astringent that penetrates deep to help prevent blemishes before they start. It is formulated with proven zit-zappers such as salicylic acid and willow bark extract. This oil-dissolver unclogs pores for a visibly clearer complexion without over-irritation. Instantly skin is super-clean, without a trace of oil. In just 8 hours, breakouts are reduced. Over time, scars and acne marks fade. It is maximum strength, non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested. 70% of users saw clearer skin in just 7 days*. (*based on a consumer study)

OMG. This astringent is the best. I use it all the time to get my skin feeling like it has been exposed to ice. At least that is what it feels like! Your skin will feel refreshed and amazing after using this. Like your skin has just had an amazing facial. 


2 oz./57g
After using the other products, for cleansing and toning your skin, you need a lotion to hydrate it. But it needs to be blemish friendly. This one is. It is the ultimate acne-fighting, mattifying lotion. This powerful, botanically effective , oil-free formula keeps shine at bay while it weightlessly hydrates the skin. Formulated with salicylic acid and willow bark extract help this lotion take down zits and let you see a visibly clearer complexion. Never tight, never oily. Skin is smooth, fresh and prepped for your day (or night). This lotion is maximum strength, oil-free, non-comedogenic and has been dermatologist tested. It provides an all day matte finish. 

What I love about this lotion is that it does mattify the skin all day long. Most lotions do not do this. This one DOES. It is not a lie. Your face will not look oily unless you don't use the entire line of products here. 


6 fl.oz./177 mL 
Add indulgence to your cleansing routine. This soap-free milk cleanser gently removes any traces of makeup, dirt, oil and debris for a clean skin. Their botanically powerful Marine Complex, featuring sea lettuce extract helps to fortify skin and encourages an even skin tone. Spoil yourself with skin that is clean but never stripped of its natural oils. This cleanser is hypo-allergenic, soap-free and promotes an even skin tone. The even advanced line washes out dullness and promotes an even skin tone in general. It's the Marine Complex with the sea lettuce that helps even the skin tone. It is in all the even advanced products and it really does help get rid of dull skin and even it out. 

This cleansing milk is great for skin that is normal with some hyperpigmentation. It is hydrating, soothing and moisturizing. Skin will feel loved with this cleansing milk. It will feel soothed and happy. 


0.25oz./7g
When you need a really fast fix for a pimple, this tinted cream immediately blurs the offending blemish while willow bark extract, colloidal sulfur and licorice root work immediately to remedy the blemish and soon it will be gone. This product contains 6% sulfur to help treat acne blemishes, which is great and not irritating. It is also oil-free. The willow bark extract helps to hide and treat the blemish. This product is also hypo-allergenic. 
This helps get rid of pimples in no time flat. Use twice daily and make sure to not spread any bacteria from the blemish to another area of the face. 

0.25oz./7g
If you need a fast fix for thin lips, this moisturizing gloss immediately stimulates your lips with cinnamon, peppermint and ginger to trigger plumping and flushing with a hint of color and shine. The gloss leaves lips full, smooth and kissably soft. It instanly stimulates lips. It is pocket-sized and ready to go with you on a date or anywhere. The gloss is gentle and effective. 
This is for someone who really wants to put some va-va-voom in her lips. Personally, I don't like these kinds of serums but some do. I find them too spicy for my lips.  

0.25oz./7g
Undereye circles are a pain in the butt. When you need a fast fix for them, this vanishing yellow concealer neutralizes darkness to brighten tired eyes while apple fruit, white lily and caffeine help to maintain an even tone from below the surface. It’s magical brightening in the blink of an eye. This product is hypo-allergenic, it is gentle and effective and is great because it is pocket sized and can be taken with you wherever you go. And it works wonders!
This definitely is not too yellow for under the eye area. It blends into the skin and your eyes will look so good, especially when your makeup is finished.
