Review: OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel

The quest for the holy grail eye cream always seem to be a never-ending journey. Today I'm sharing a new eye cream - OZ Naturals Super Youth Eye Gel . Interestingly, if you search for the Super Youth Eye Gel on Amazon, the product listing name is Best Eye Gel Eye cream for dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles with no mention of "Super Youth".  A lot of claims for ONE product!

Review: Valentia True Glow Eye Cream and Ultra Plumping Hydration Mask

There's not that many brands out there that would be confident enough to provide a lifetime money back guarantee. A brand that does definitely warrants a try. Valentia offers this confidence on all their skincare products.  On top of that they have best buzz words - organic, vegan, cruelty free and American made.

Their True Glow Eye Cream also claims to solve all eye concerns: moisturizing, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, gets rid of dark circles AND puffiness!  All this packed into a bottle for $25! Sold on Amazon with hundreds of reviews, this is one of the most popular eye creams on Amazon.

2015 Year in Review & Favorites

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and wish you all an even better 2016!

2015 was definitely a new milestone year for me with the engagement and wedding planning.  This year also marked many new tried and true products that I definitely have on my holy grail repurchase list.

2015 Beauty Faves - Lorac Skinny Eye Palette in Black, Dior DiorSnow White Reveal Sunscreen, Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Foundation, Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil, Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalms

  • Lorac Skinny Eye Palette in Black - this was a Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Exclusive and I didn't expect it to be so perfect! Not only is it the perfect warm nudes palette, but it has both the shimmer and matte shadows that I use daily. The shadows are so buttery soft AND they don't crease despite all day wear. I found myself reaching for it almost every day in the last 4 months so it definitely had to be a fave for this year. I'm looking forward to getting more.
  • Dior DiorSnow White Reveal UVB Protection Sunscreen in Translucent -  I was reluctant to use it in the beginning since it's pure sunscreen. I always have to mix it in with a moisturizer every morning so it was a little cumbersome but after finding the right one (Clinique's Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief), it works so wonderfully. Never greasy feeling and doesn't crease any base makeup.
  • Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua Ultra Light Skin Perfecting Sunscreen Makeup Foundation in 20 Beige - super lightweight foundation that has a light to medium coverage. My skin stays dewy all day without getting oily. Super love and already restocked.
  • Sunday Riley Luna Sleeping Night Oil - if I had to choose the #1 beauty product of the year, I'm most amazed by the Luna Sleeping Night Oil's results. No, I didn't see overnight results like most people claimed, but I did see noticeable differences to my pores within a week.  I also saw improvement to acne scars around my chin area. Maybe a full review to come soon?
  • Laura Mercier Lip Parfait Creamy Colourbalms - I already own 5 of these! They go on smooth and doesn't accentuate any lines. Leaves lips looking glossy and rich. Laura Mercier already added more colors in this line, I guess I'll be stocking them up again.
That's it for my top 5 beauty favorites of 2015! There were many wonderful products this year but these are definitely hands down the best I've tried and used this year. Do you have a list to share?

Once again, thank you for stopping by and making it possible for me to get chances like sponsored posts. I wish you all a wonderful 2016!

Review: GlassesShop Warner Robin Rimless Prescription Glasses

Here's a fun review today. I've converted to a contacts wearer for over 2 years now, but I'm still not 100% comfortable wearing contacts for work on a daily basis. For work, I'll still resort to wearing prescription glasses. Just when I decided to leave a pair handy at work, the reps at GlassesShop reached out to me to try out a pair of their glasses.

The GlassesShop website is pretty easy to navigate through.  There's definitely many options on their website to choose from. Everything from prescription glasses to sunglasses. Many of their frames are very affordable in the $30 price range.

I was all set to try something different than my norm (narrow rectangle frames). I like how they also show you try-on pictures for each frame. So I decided to go with these rimless frames ($35) in a fun red metallic frame.
