What's the Deal Dreadful? Review of Azure Naturals Cucumber Infused Ultimate Peptide Eye Brightening Gel


*Press*

Hello Lovelies!
  I am back again with another review. I received this product in return for an honest review and all opinions are my own.  This time I am reviewing Azure Naturals Cucumber Infused Ultimate Peptide Eye Brightening Gel. While the name is a mouthful, the results of the product are not. They are simply amazing. It gets the job done.  Like with anything new that I am going to apply to my face, I tested the product first on my wrist for any initial allergic reaction.
   Since there were none, I then followed the directions and applied this product twice a day (once in the morning and in the evening) . After just a couple of days, I noticed an dramatic improvement. Not only was my eye area brighter since my dark circles were diminishing, but the skin around my eye feel and appear smoother and firmer. 
    The gel is lightweight, absorbs quickly and has a slight cucumber scent that isn't too overpowering. The container is extremely large and a little product will go a long way. I will be picking more of this product up when I run out since I am impressed with the results.

What's the Deal Dreadful? Review of BioGanix 100% Pure Garcinia Cambogia Ultra 80% HCA

*Press*

  Hello Lovelies!
    I am back again with another review. I know two reviews in one day is almost unheard of! But anyways, I am doing a review today on BioGanix 100% Pure Garcinia Cambogia Ultra 80% HCA. Which is not only a hunger suppressant, it also helps increase your metabolism, loose excess weight and help improve mood, energy and even memory (which I need a lot of help with especially during this season).
   I have tried herbal hunger suppressants before and they usually take a couple of days before they kick in. However, I noticed and immediate difference in my hunger as soon as I started taking these. Yup, the first day. As per the directions on the bottle, I took two tablets 30 minutes to an hour before eating. I found that it was easiest to remind myself to take the pills by setting a timer and then start cooking. When going out to eat I would take them before we went to the restaurant so that it had enough time for the tablets to start kicking in.
   I found myself eating less and having more energy which is ALWAYS a bonus in this household. I was extremely skeptical about the helping the memory aspect of these pills however I was finding that I didn't have to write myself as many notes to remind myself to do things around the house, pick up things at the store, etc.
    The capsules are made from vegetable cellulose which is perfect for vegetarians and vegans since there is no yucky gelatin capsule. The capsules are larger than some of my other supplements that I take (see the photo down below when compared to an Advil Liquid Gel)  and there is a light after taste that I noticed when I first started taking them. However, after a couple of days I didn't notice the taste anymore. Overall I was very impressed with this product and I think that it will be an excellent addition to a healthy lifestyle/work our regiment.

What's the Deal Dreadful? Review of Healthy Now Nutrition Colon Cleanse Detox Plus Extra Strength

*Press*

Hello Lovelies!
   I am back today with another review. This time I am doing a review on Healthy Now Nutrition Colon Cleanse Detox Plus Extra Strength. I had heard lots of good things about colon cleanses and how healthy they are for you so I decided to take the plunge and try it out. Now I had read ALL kinds of information about colon cleanses after I was approved to do the review ranging from this was excellent to OMG my insides are melting and I lived on the toilet. 
      So, I was unsure of exactly how this was going to go. After I ordered the bottle, I received a "tips and tricks" email from the company with information to help me get the most out of my cleanse.  It was extremely helpful. Some of the tricks include drink LOTS of water (which is a must cause you are going to be going to the bathroom more than usual)  and eat more fiber  and less red meat, dairy and wheat.  The water will prevent you from getting dehydrated and the fiber makes your bowel movements "thicker" which helps push the junk out of your intestines. I also started it on a weekend when I could be close to the toilet just to be safe to allow my body to adjust to the cleanse. The company also suggests that you start off which one capsule per dose (which I did) and then move up to when you are comfortable. I didn't feel uncomfortable nor did I have any cramping while taking this.  So I would say that my first cleanse was a success! 


You get a huge bottle to try out.


These are vegetable capsules so they are vegetarian friendly

Mani Monday..Gradients and Drunken Stamping...

*Purchased*

   Hello Lovelies,
       I am back again with another Mani Monday installment. I debated whether or not to post this mani since I am really MEH about it.
Yup, this is my exact face while I am writing this blog post.


     Originally I had this awesome idea of doing a red to black gradient and then stamping this rose stamp over it to give it an epic rose look.

I could visualize the awesomeness...



   The gradient came out better than I imagined so I was super excited to stamp over this cause I knew that this was going to be gorgeous. However I was yet again betrayed by my stamper. It just refused to pick up ANY of the black stamping polish whatsoever.

WHY?? WHY DID YOU BETRAY ME?!?!?!



   But I was determined to have this rose stamp on my nails when I should have listened to my stamper which was trying to tell me to leave it be in order and just rock the gradient. BUT, no,  I was a dumb ass.

Yes, yes I am. I should have left the gradient alone.



   The white is pretty however it wasn't the feel or the look that I was going for. So here my mani is all its' meh glory.

Those patterns SHOULD have been roses but now the obscure the gradient. 



I used the following polishes for this mani (and don't hold it against them cause they are all gorgeous)
Opi Natural Strengthening Base Coat
Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar
Vapid Lacquers Vampires Don't Sparkle
Sinful Colors Oil Slick
Pure Ice Superstar

  So the lesson learned is that if my stamper won't pick the black and you have an awesome gradient. LEAVE THE SHIT ALONE DREADFUL. Do NOT IMPROVISE.  While Vampires Don't Sparkle is not available on Vapid Lacquers site you might be able to contact the owner and see if you can get a custom. But you will see it on the next nail post cause I have to do it justice.

Attack of the Gunpowder Holographic glitter eye of the day...

*Press*

   Hello Lovelies!
    I am back again with another EOTD this time from BeautyBarBaby. I have been on a glitter kick lately since I was trying to get the perfect holiday glitter look.

I swear this is my makeup motto..


And honestly, who am I kidding? I am a glitter whore.

Hold on to your sword Ned, GLITTER is COMING!



I just simply can't get enough of it.


See even HE MAN gets me. He LOVES glitter too!



I want to GLITTER ALL THE THINGS!


I do this same pose in my bathroom when I am about to apply glitter and this battle cry  also accompanies it.


But enough of my glitter obsession and on with the look!







I used the following products for this look:
Lunatick Cosmetic Labs Primer
BeautyBarBaby (BBB) Cream & Sugar     
BBB Striptease
BBB Rated R
BBB Poison Apple
BBB Black Velvet
BBB Gunpowder Holographic Glitter (applied over Black Velvet )
BBB Bling Bling Glitter Adhesive.


I wish that I could capture the shine of the glitter with a front shot of my makeup. But since I can't I will just have to settle for side makeup shots as well so you can see the SPARKLE!


If you want to pick up some BeautyBarBaby you can do so here on Etsy. You can also follow them via Facebook, their Facebook Fangroup, Instagram and Twitter. I hope that you enjoyed this look and remember GET YOUR GLITTER ON!

What's the Deal Dreadful? Review of Azure Naturals Ultimate Retinol Lime Infused Organic Moisturizer


*Press* 

Hello Lovelies, 
   I am back today with another review of a new product, Azure Naturals Ultimate Retinol Lime Infused Organic Moisturizer. I was sent this product to in return for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I would never recommend anything that I wouldn't use myself. I received it through Amazon and their shipping is always first rate. The bottle contains 1.7 oz of moisturizer and a little goes a long way! 

I have always been a little weary of using products with retinol since it can have the tendecy to dry your skin out.  However, this moisturize doesn't. It has all the benefits of retinol without any of the adverse drying out. The moisturizer is lightweight, creamy and absorbs quickly without any oily residue left over. It has a nice hint of lime which isn't overpowering or to citrus smelling. Which is a bonus since super citrus scents makes me think of house cleaners and this does not. 

I have noticed a decrease in my fine lines, which are always magnified a MILLION times when taking eye shadow swatches and makeup looks.  I also noticed that there was a general overall firming and tightening of my skin and neck area.  It can be applied both morning and night and worn under makeup without any issues. However I do recommend wearing an SPF with this or staying out of the direct sun since you may be more prone to sunburn.However this isn't much of an issue even in Florida during December. But I would take extra care during the summer months or wear a hat. I also would recommend doing a small patch test first to make sure that you don't have an allergic reaction to anything.  Due to the small amount used, cause a little does go a long way, this bottle is going to last me a while. I am eager to see the outcome when I am done.  







Ingredients: 
Organic Aloe Vera, Organic Sunflower Oil, Palm Oil, Pentylene Glycol, Phospholipids, Retinol, Polysorbate 20, Potassium Phosphate, Vitamin E (Tocopheryl), Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate,Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Kosher Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Jojoba Oil, Wildcrafted Green Tea, Wildcrafted Resina Propoli, Shea Butter, Vitamin B5 (Panthenol), Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexyl Glycerin, Xanthan Gum, Citric Acid, Lime Oil, Lavender Oil



This is made in the United States and contains no parabens or GMO's. It is plant based, cruelty free and never tested on animals which is fantastic! They also offer a 365 Day Money Back Guarantee, so if you don't like the product you can return it. Hassle Free.  You can pick this up via Amazon right HERE

I hope that you enjoyed this installment of What's the Deal Dreadful and until next time lovelies!
