Recently an author reached out to me asking me to review one of their kindle childrens books, Terry Treetop and the Lost Egg. My five year old has just learned how to read in the past year, so I’m always eager to find new books for her to practice reading (especially through the summer).
This book was adorable! I did have to download the kindle app for my computer as I don’t have an actual kindle tablet, or whatever they are, but it worked out great. I also love that it doesn’t take up ANY room in her already cluttered, and constantly messy bedroom!! Perhaps I will switch to kindle books from now on…
Anyways, right now the book is FREE on Amazon.ca, so there’s no harm in going ahead and downloading it for your kids too! Click here to get yours!
I have two new products to share with you guys by Mystelic Beauty! You can buy both of these products online at Amazon and I will link them below.
I have been using both of these products for a couple of weeks and while the eye cream is not on my list of absolute must haves, I think the lotion is a good one.
Before I start, I’d like to say that I’m personally a bit on the fence with any “eye treatment”. I pretty much think that they are a money grab, and that any serum you use all over your face, can be used around your eyes (note that I sound around your eyes) instead of spending the extra money on a product “specifically” for your eyes. Now, sometimes there may be ingredients that are irritating, but if applied correctly, this should be pretty rare (or only occur with sensitive skin or allergies). When you’re applying any product (except makeup) around your eyes, you aren’t putting it on your eyelids or that close to your eyes. If you feel near your eyes you should be able to feel the bone around your eye, that is where you apply eye products. I pretty much go around under my eye, and follow just below my brow. Product spreads over time, so you don’t need to apply it right on your eyelid! So on to the products now…
The bottles are sleek and professional looking, and match from product to product. They are pump bottles, and one pump is enough for application. I also like that the bottles aren’t glass. I’m always so scared of glass bottles on my counter tops because I’m clumsy as all hell and knock crap all over the place all the time. At least I know these won’t break or spill when I knock them over!
The ingredients are easy to read, and are similar to the Vitamin C serums I posted a while back. While they’re not as organic as the serums, they are still mostly made of naturally derived ingredients, and everyone likes that!
Natures Best Eye Treatment
This treatment claims to (taken from the description on Amazon):
I will say that it does moisturize. The rest, I’m not so sure about. I really only have fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes when I smile, and it did nothing to help that (but I wouldn’t expect any topical product to). I’m also not a fan of how sticky it feels after. It does absorb quickly, but it’s sticky until then. I personally wouldn’t bother, but I also wouldn’t have a better one to recommend. I’m actually going to give this to my mom, and will update this in a couple weeks or so and let you guys know what she thought about it as well!
If you’d like to give it a try, you can buy it on Amazon for $37.95 by clicking here
Natures Best Face Lotion
This lotion claims to (taken from the description on Amazon):
Some big claims for this one. First, I’d like to point out that there are 5 skin types (normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive). I would also like to stress to everyone reading this, not to believe everything you read (yes, I know it seems very contradictory for me to write that). I usually tell people to avoid products that make such extreme guarantees and have such a low price tag. Not many (if any at all) people in the cosmetic industry are here to help you look younger at an affordable price.
That being said, I actually do like this lotion. I hate what they try to guarantee, and think that they need to really reword their entire description, but I would recommend this as a moisturizer, not a miracle worker. Having tried it already, I would buy again even though I would cringe at the description.
It is a lightweight moisturizer that absorbs super quick and feels great. I have combination skin, and I’m pretty prone to stress and hormonal breakouts, but this didn’t make anything worse for me (other than maybe some stress pimples from their outrageous description, yeah, I’m still going on about it). Overall, I would recommend you to turn a blind eye to the description and just buy it without expecting to have a plump, wrinkle free face after.
