REVIEW : Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub from Valentia

This is a review of the Eternal Youth Exfoliating Scrub from Valentia.

First impressions were of the look and feel- it looks like rice pudding or tapioca pudding. Very different from what I’m used to. It’s like a springy gel but very soft, enough so to spread evenly and easily and smear onto a facial cleansing brush or cloth.

So as soon as I started applying it, I wasn’t a big fan of the scent. It has what I’d call a very multi-faceted aroma, at some points I could smell a tea-like after smell that was nice but overall the prevailing smell was initially vaguely medicinal in nature. But this is made up for quite a bit by the claims of this one not having artificial ingredients- I’d rather do without the stuff that makes other scrubs smell so good if they’re using artificial fragrances to get that way.

The main job of this scrub is to cleanse and soften without over drying, and hopefully showing long-term added benefits due to the blend of vitamins and aloe vera. It’s working quite well as advertised so far, my skin feels tighter but cleaner afterward and the aloe vera keeps up on moisture without leaving residue. I do think it could stand to be more moisturizing though, I have combination skin and the rather dry areas are still an issue. Since this is an exfoliator, I opt to use it with gentle and very softened sponges.

The container is large, the contents aren’t 100% full, the scrub is like a big round handful in the center of the jar. It does appear to be at least the four ounces stated though and should last at least a month. I am using it sparingly and the scent and effects on my skin after direct use are very noticeable.

So far I’m happy with this product and each of the times I’ve used it have been pleasant, no bad after effects even though I have sensitive skin.

REVIEW : Gurin Professional Rechargeable Water Flosser with High Capacity Water Tank - 2015 Version

Product Link : HERE

So I have a waterpik that has served me well for the past few years, the problem though- it takes up so much space with its massive water tank and all the little parts and bits to it.

Enter the Gurin Water Flosser, it has a modern handheld design wherein the water tank is built straight inside of the flosser itself, and the entire unit is only marginally larger than, say, some of the fancy electric toothbrush.

It arrived looking exactly as pictured. Very excellent workmanship, bright clarity whites, shiny silvers, a real solid but lightweight feel to it. Pre-assembled, very easy to figure out. Minimal button controls but still a nice array of settings. The settings are very, very important as these types of flossers are best suited for sensitive gums and teeth in the first place and should have gentle settings. I'm impressed by the settings and small but noticeable differentiations in the vibrations and patterns while using this. The flosser tips are super small, I will be showing some pictures but just know they're among the smallest out there. They really get into crowded intersections quite well, and are more productive than larger/wider flossers. The two heads are easily replaceable, they just snap into place without issue. Overall, I am very pleased with the performance and ease of use.

REVIEW : MiCoolker(TM) Printed Waterproof Lunch Box Lunch Bag Korean Fashion Canvas Bag

Product Link : HERE

This is a really cute lunch box, and has the potential for multi-purpose use. I can see this working great for my makeup too because the inner materials aren't cloth and seem very smooth and easy to clean, plus the capacity is so roomy and well-suited to smaller items of any height and shape. >> Full Review

REVIEW : MiCoolker Cute Grid Lattice Lace Floral Small Cotton Shoulder Bag Messenger Crossbody Bag Wallets Purse Case

Product Link : HERE

I knew looking at the pictures that this bag would be irresistibly to my liking, and I'm pleased to find that the quality matches the product description and professional images. I'll also be uploading some images of mine to show off how nice it looks. The soft pinks and darker pastel pinks are of a uniform color quality throughout, no fading points. Very rich color quality. The patterns are charming and of equally good quality. // Full Review

REVIEW : Nature Makeup Remover from Miss Landson(tm)

Product Link : HERE

I wish I had this cloth ages ago. For makeup removal, it works splendidly but for eye makeup removal it is particularly life changing. The surface actually pulls off mascara and eyeshadow!

I just ran some water on the surface and went to work at wiping my skin dry. The surface is luxurious, soft enough that I was able to use this somewhat abrasively with no irritation. Love that it will last seemingly forever with the 3+ years (1000 times use) claims.

The material, both front and back, is quite curious. It has a light shimmer and rich color. It works very well and is noticeably unique from other microfiber cloths. The surface is somewhat fuzzy, perhaps aiding in how it clings to makeup and rubs it off. Also a light exfoliator. Highly recommendable!  Note : Sample item provided for review.

REVIEW : Karmick Hot and Cold Lavender Eye Mask Review

Product Link : HERE

I find this mask to be one of the better I've tried thus far, soft and light-feeling. It's also generously large in terms of dimensions, I think it would cover most heads of adults and teens comfortably, might be a bit big for kids. The rich royal blue color is quite shiny and premium-looking.

The lavender scent is excellent, doesn't have a harsh perfume quality at all- actually reminds me vaguely of aromatherapy oil, as the aroma just sort of wafts about and is noticeable when the mask is on. The lavender is very instrumental in the appeal of this product for me, as lavender is a natural remedy for insomnia and every little bit helps.

Overall, this is a great-looking and comfortable sleep mask, really couldn't ask for more. Recommended.

Review : US Art Supply 9"x12" Premium Oil Painting Paper Pad

US Art Supply 9"x12" Premium Oil Painting Paper Pad

Product Link : HERE

Very nice, vacuum-sealed paper pad. The pages are spotless, pristine, and well bound but easily removed from their binding. Perfectly sized by the indicated 9 x 12 inches. I was surprised by how delicate the detail is, the pages have a sort of soft weaved pattern that is very strong and lovely, but still smooth and flat. These sheets strike me as very long-lasting and durable. Note : I received this complimentary product in exchange for my honest review and assessment.

Fusion4K 4K HDMI cable - 3ft Professional Series :: Review + Pics

I've usually sprung for cheap, disposable HDMI cables in the past but after using this one I can better understand the benefits of the higher priced, fancier cables. Most of the cheap ones have a thin cord that wears over time, this one has a very thick, well-protected and weaved line that could weather practically any type of usage.

The materials on display here are largely metals and minimal plastic (actually, the only plastic I can ascertain are the protective clips that keep the HDMI inputs safe) very tough stuff that looks lasting and feels very durable. It's backed by a one year guarantee but just observing the look and feel of this cable, I would think it to be tremendously long-lasting. 

Performance was as it should be, instantaneous transmitting of flawless audio and video between my TV and computer. The aesthetic is excellent, the gold decorative elements shine while the gold-plated tips are spotless and flawlessly designed. I would highly recommend this cable particularly to people who want a great-looking cord that is built to last. The only potential concern is choosing the right length, 3 ft is fine for my needs and media placements but most people would probably be better served by 6 ft+.

Overall, I highly recommend this HDMI cable!  And I'd like to thank Fusion4k for providing this item complimentary.
