Review: Carbon Glycolic Acid 30% Chemical Face Peel Giveaway

carbon glycolic acid 50% peel

Professional grade glycolic acid 30% chemical face peel for flawless looking skin. Comes with instructions. This is a strong peel and is not for the faint of heart. Use only if you are used to having strong acids on the skin. I would not recommend this for anyone who has not been using very strong glycolic acid on the skin. It is good for reducing the look of fine lines, wrinkles, it promotes collagen production, removes dead skin cells, reduces hyperpigmentation, skin discolorations and acne. Skin looks rejuvenated and radiant.

Using this my skin definitely had more of a “sloughing off” than I had experienced with any other peels I have used recently. I liked this and would recommend only if you are used to having strong peels. Seriously. Only for those who are used to strong peels should use this. It is a good peel and is great for lines, wrinkles, etc.

This is available on Amazon.com for $29.97: http://amzn.to/1IXi8hl

Review: Thermo Science Belt and Giveaway

thermoscience beltthermo science belt

The Thermo Science Belt is supposedly supposed to help back pain and is supposed to help you lose weight. It provides lumbar support for those that have back pain. Let me tell you this. It will only work for those that have very mild back pain, I have severe back pain and it did nothing for mine. It is also scientifically engineered to retain body heat and use thermogenic properties to destroy body fat. Both men and women can use the belt under clothing for everyday use. Does it work? I don’t think so only account. It is supposed to use your own body heat to melt fat. Well for me that did not work. And it only helps to lose abdominal body fat.

It retails for $12.99 on Amazon.com: http://amzn.to/1KxWw0R

The company is giving away one of the belts though, so you can try one for yourself. Enter below and see if you would like to give it a go.

Here is my interpretation of the look, the red lippie is really quite beautiful. I also liked the blue eye shadow pencil more than the white one. I thought it had more pigmentation. The white one went on lightly. The blue one definitely went on much better. However, both go on smoothly.

Review: Joy and Karma Hyaluronic Acid Serum

What I love about Hyaluronic acid serum is its ability to take dry, dull skin and make it feel more hydrated and much softer. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to attract moisture to the skin (it's a humectant) and it holds 1000x times its own weight in water. This means that skin that is even extremely dry and parched will benefit from this serum. All you have to do is apply it after cleansing prior to other drums and definitely before your moisturizing cream. 

Joy and Karma Hyaluroinic Serum was made with 72% organic ingredients and does not have any parabens, petrochemicals, phthalate sand sulfates that are often found in other products. Skin will glow, look vibrant, feel pampered and feel well hydrated. It improves skin's elasticity, firmness and helps to reduce free radical damage. Skin is plump and looks radiant.

This can be purchased on Amazon.com for $17.50: http://amzn.to/1COVGoz

Review: Vita Sciences Nervex Neuropathy Pain Relief Cream

This cream is for use by those who have peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, etc. I happen to have neuropathy from a tumor I had on my femoral nerve. So I ha e pain on my right thigh, foot, and calf. It feels as if I am being electrocuted at times. I also get the burning feeling, feeling as if there is water there, and other weird feelings. I have permanent numbness on one part of my thigh. 

This cream did help me. I applied it to my leg and found that it immediately helped relieve the pain I was experiencing. Thank goodness too. I take a large amount of narcotic pain mess but there are times when they don't work. This took a little of the edge off. I will ha e nerve damage the rest of my life and I will keep using this to help with my pain.

All you need to do is rub it in and wait for a few minutes. It works almost immediately. It is also a good source of vitamin B12. The cream is odorless and it says it can repair some of the damage but I don't believe that. It cannot repair the chunk of nerve that is missing from my nerve.

This cream is available on Amazon.com for $19.95: http://amzn.to/1GSPbBI
