A few weeks ago, I got Hyla3D skincare product in my mail. I was very excited to try it out!
Hyla3D is Jan Marini’s most recent product that takes a 3-dimensional approach to restore skin’s hydration, youthful volume, smoothness, and to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
I started using it routinely twice a day in the morning and in the evening. In the morning, I wash my face and moisturize it. Then it’s time for Hyla3D! I only use 2-3 pumps to apply it to my entire face and neck.
When in the evening, I apply it after all my makeup is off and my face is well moisturized. My skin feels great, as the product absorbs quickly and doesn’t dry it.
So far I am happy with the product, but I am not done using it. It looks like the more I use it, the more results I get. -)
This beautiful necklace from Ettika was my inspiration to style the elegant and feminine look I wore today. This unique-style necklace made me think of the midi skirt I bought from ASOS a while ago, but had no idea what to wear it with. So, for whatever reason, I felt like these two items would go together perfectly. I hope I was right! -)
The Ettika necklace is so pretty! You will see me wearing it quite often, as it goes with so many looks. Visit Ettika online store to see an amazing collection of jewelry they have. There is lots of amazing pieces to choose from.
Even better, if you decide to buy this necklace or anything else you like from their collection, I give you a special code to get 15% OFF of your purchase!!! It’s even better isn’t it?! -)
After receiving and trying this full size kit from Ole Henrikson (received through Influenster), I have written my honest review in this post about each one of the three products received. The kit includes the Balance Oil Control Cleanser, Balance Oil Control Tone, and Balance Oil Control Hydrator.
First of all, I love the sleek and modern packaging the products came in, and that shade of green is my favorite. It’s earthy and fresh. -)
Ole Henriksen Balancing Force™ Oil Control Toner
The toner is great. The minty scent gives you the refreshing and cooling sense.
When applying it, you feel a little bit of tingling sensation, but it’s not an uncomfortable feeling, it just feels like the toner is doing its job. It tightens up your face and minimizes pores and blackheads. I definitely see noticeable improvements on my face. My pores are almost invisible on my nose! -)
My skin feels cleaner and smoother after applying it!
Ole Henriksen Find Your Balance™ Oil Control Cleanser
The cleanser has a creamy consistency that forms into a gentle lather when applied to a damp face. At first my skin feels cool and tingly for a couple of minutes, and then the minty scent has a cooling effect which feels extremely revitalizing. My skin feels fresh and clean after I use this. I like how it doesn’t leave my face overly dry, instead it makes it feel very smooth. I highly recommend this cleanser!
Ole HenriksenCounter Balance™ Oil Control Hydrator
This hydrator is my favorite product of them all. I love how my skin feels light and just smooth. It absorbs super quickly, so you don’t have to worry about getting moisturizer everywhere if you put it on before bed. It also doesn’t make my skin feel oily, instead it has a perfect matte finish. I love the minty smell of the toner, as well as the other two products. I find it cooling and very refreshing. This moisturizer is very pleasant to use.
It was amazing to be able to try all these three products for free through Influenster. I am excited to continue using them!
Look what we found at Target a few weeks ago!!! Let me tell you why I was so excited about these products. -)
My daughter’s hair has always been on the dry side. As she was growing up, and her hair was getting longer, we learned that it needed some extra conditioning. And so we are always on the lookout for the hair products that are specifically made for dry hair and sensitive scalp. That’s why I was so excited to see SoCozy brand, the salon-quality hair care products developed for kids, at Target. Their new HUSH collection by SoCozy is designed to treat dry hair for children with sensitive skin. It includes HUSH Sensitive Scalp Serum, Sensitive Foam, Sensitive 2in1, and Sensitive Detangler.
Here is what my daughter’s hair looks like very morning after she brushes it. Obviously, it needs some conditioning. So, let’d start testing the HUSH collection, and see if it does what it promises.
First, we used the Sensitive Scalp Serum. It’s a non-greasy, leave-in formula that helps calm an irritated scalp, while reducing dry flakes.
The best way to use it is to part her hair in small sections, apply directly to scalp and massage gently.
Then I sprayed it with the detangler. I am very impressed how well conditioned, smooth and soft her hair was. It was very easy to brush through.
I could definitely see the benefits of using it every morning. It will get the tangles out with no problem. See the result below.
I let it dry naturally, and really loved the end result. Judge for yourself!
To summarize my review, I will definitely be buying SoCozy detangler, foam, and scalp serum in the future. All these products work very well with dry hair. Each one of them contributed to my daughter’s hair looking softer, shinier, and healthier. I strongly recommend all three of these products.
However, I can’t say the same about the shampoo+conditioner, as it didn’t work for my daughter’s hair. It may work well with your kid’s hair, but that’s just my experience. And, keep in mind, her hair is really dry.
If you like the result, get ready to participate in a GIVEAWAY very soon!!! The WINNER will be getting all 4 hair products from HUSH Collection! Watch out for my next post! -)
(Sponsored post, but the opinion is mine and honest)
If you follow my posts, you know by now that I like playing with different styles…mixing and matching dressy and comfortable, expensive and cheap…it’s my fun and creative way to dress up that somehow when all put together makes it looks stylish and complete. It’s like a game!
Today I am layering a black dressy top and a military jacket with a tan pencil skirt. Heels, clutch, and curls add a feminine touch.
I stay home most of the time, as I home-school my kids, and am very happy to do so! -) However, somehow my closet includes many office-style outfits. Pencil skirts are one of my favorite garments, and it’s one of the main pieces that creates a perfect office-style look.
Jord is a unique wood watch brand run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. They are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. I love how this watch perfectly combines a blended earth inspiration and an elegant design in one!
Before I talk about the watch, I want to say that the wooden box the watch came in is absolutely stunning. The attention to details is impressive: JORD name and logo engraved on the box, magnetic top, and a little drawer in the front. This multi-functional wooden box is something special. However, you can make it even more special!
Here is how: “Engrave your cedar watch box with anything you want! Write a special note to the recipient, upload your logo/monogram, or provide a handwritten message to be engraved directly on the side of the box!”
Isn’t that thoughtful?!
The watch is beautiful. The vibrant emerald green face and the sandalwood hue create a refined and organic palette that is very pleasing to the eye. I can see me wearing many looks with earth tones, brown, green, gray colors, and even leopard print that would be complemented by the watch.
Some other features worth mentioning are sapphire crystal glass and a deployment buckle with push buttons. It’s easy to clasp around your wrist, and it feels secure. The watch is super light, smooth, and feels very comfortable when wearing. The natural dark sandalwood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils, and it looks and feels amazing.
Jord cares for its customers, and has a little something extra available with this watch! A personalized message can be engraved on the backplate of the watch. Doesn’t that sounds like a great gift idea?!
Definitely recommending the watch to everyone as a gift for yourself or a gift for someone you love! ( Click here to view men’s shop or women’s shop)
In conclusion, I really appreciate how skillfully Jord combined uniqness and down to earth, simplicity and sophistication in one beautiful timepiece.
Unlike my previous posts, this one will be different:
it’s my first time reviewing a skincare product,
I have never posted a photo of me that was make-up free. -)
So, get ready to read this different and exciting post!
I love wearing makeup. It provides me with confidence that even if I have some blemishes and wrinkles on my face, my foundation does a great job hiding them. Sounds good, but that’s not always the case. So I thought instead of hiding the problem, let’s solve it. That’s why I decided to give DermaE skincare products a try.
( It’s a sponsored post, but the opinion is mine and very honest. )
Why DermaE? The answer is simple! They have high ethical standards and never compromise on skin care health and safety. Their products are eco-friendly, natural and organic. They care about your skin as much as they care about our environment.
100% vegan, cruelty-free formulas do not contain parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates, petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten, soy or GMOs. Now that’s honest-to-goodness skin care.
In addition to that, the company supports green business, and participates in recycling programs. I wish more companies would have the same mindset as DermaE!
First I tried their Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask.
When applied, it has an interesting dark cobalt-blue color, which lightens as it dries. My face felt cool, minty, and my skin began to feel tight.
My kids never seen me in a mask before, and so they kept taking videos and photos of me looking like a blueman. -) I tried not to laugh, to keep the mask from cracking.
In 5 min, it was all dry. I moistened my fingertips, and massage gently around my nose, chin and forehead. Rinsed thoroughly with a damp cloth. The results were great! My face looked lighter, and my skin felt very soft. The mask was a success!
The second product I tried was Purifying Daily Detox Scrub.
I applied this product on my wet face and gently scrubbed it in a circular motion.
Let it sit for 1 min and rinse thoroughly with water. My skin felt fresh and very clean.
I definitely recommend both of these products. They do their job well!
DermaE is a much needed gift for yourself! Your skin will have a healthier, softer and smoother appearance.
