Andalou Naturals Hyaluronic DMAE LIFT AND FIRM CREAM

I had been using the Andalou Naturals Purple Carrot night cream and really loved it. But I ran out and it was winter so I decided to switch to a thicker formula. ERMAHGURD. I am so glad I tried it. … Continue reading

Blum Naturals Facial wipes

I only use a face wipe about once a week. I would never substitute using one of them instead of washing my face. However, sometimes I’m really lazy or its in the middle of the day when I want to take make up off.
I like a wipe that’s a decent size, wet but not dripping. And I like a bit of texture. Not exfoliating, but not baby but smooth either.
These fit the bill. And they smell nice. Nothing over powering, but a nice light floral scent.
Did I mention there are 30 wipes, not 25 or 28. You get a full months worth (If used daily). And they have different scents for different skin types or issues. Oh and they are cruelty free.

As for quality, I haven’t had a problem. They take off all my face make-up and most of my eye makeup. If I don’t use water proof, almost all of it comes off without a problem. I don’t have to tug or rub to hard. And they have a flip top closure to keep them moist. I’ve had one open for over two months and it’s not dried out. But I make sure to close it properly. I would totally repurchase.

City of Thieves by David Benioff – Book Review

cityofthieves.final.indd

258 pages
Publisher Summary:
“During the Nazis’ brutal siege of Leningrad, Lev Beniov is arrested for looting and thrown into the same cell as a handsome deserter named Kolya. Instead of being executed, Lev and Kolya are given a shot at saving their own lives by complying with an outrageous directive: secure a dozen eggs for a powerful Soviet colonel to use in his daughter’s wedding cake. In a city cut off from all supplies and suffering unbelievable deprivation, Lev and Kolya embark on a hunt through the dire lawlessness of Leningrad and behind enemy lines to find the impossible.”

This was a good book. I don’t normally like a: historical fiction and b: military/war novels.
Set in World War 2 we follow two males looking for eggs. The story itself only takes place over the course of a few days, but you become involved with the two men and the people they come across.
Its a moving and realistically sad book. You get to see how different personalities react and change over war. You’ll get all the emotions sadness, angry, sympathy and confusion. I would recommend this book to most people.

Andalou Naturals : Super Goji Peptide Perfecting Cream

I LOVE this day cream. I think it’s a day cream. I have normal skin, and it’s not too light or to thick for me. Worked fine all through a Florida summer and still working fine for fall.

I’ve used this every morning for the past 2 months. I have noticed a slight difference for the better in my skins texture and brightness.
I’ve also noticed my skin during the day is a more constant moisture level. If that makes any sense.
I use this after I wash/rinse my face and use a vitamin C serum. It does take a minute to work into the skin. Nothing overly annoying. I have tried some natural lotions that take 3 times as long to work into the skin. However, once its sunk in, it’s not sticky or greasy. You’re left with smooth silky feeling skin. I don’t have sensitive skin, but it does turn red easy. I have had no sensitivity to this.

This is a semi light weight cream. If I put this on my fingers or hand, it will start sliding.

Soaks up really nice. No weird residue or white cast. Now, I drink a lot. I always have water, iced coffee or some juice on hand. ALWAYS drinking something. So my skin is really hydrated. On certain days when my skin is extra hydrated. It kind of feels like something in it doesn’t sink in 100%, but still not a residue or oily. It might just be my skin acting different on different days. Doesn’t affect my makeup or anything. (Please ignore the weird bruise thing and mark) This cream did not do that.

I really like the packaging too. Dark bottle to protect the vitamin c that’s in it. Smells great. Fruity? What I really think it smells like it the Strawberries and Cream instant oatmeal from Quaker. Brought back memories.

I would totally repurchase this cream.
