KORRES GOLDEN KRUCUS

WHAT IS IT:  A precious golden elixir infused with the immense antioxidant power of one-day fresh Greek saffron to universally correct all visible signs of aging.


WHAT IT DOES:  --Fine lines/wrinkles
                               -- Uneven skin tone and discoloration
                                -- Loss of firmness/elasticity


 In a 2-week consumer use test:
- 97% reported improved skin suppleness, elasticity, and overall health
- 94% reported improved skin firmness
- 91% reported improved performance of their existing skin care routine
- 91% reported lifted skin
- 91% reported even skin tone and texture

In a 4-week consumer use test:
- 91% reported that all signs of aging were minimized


WHAT MORE IS THERE TO KNOW:  In the Greek town of Kozani, lush krocus flowers bloom only once per year and produce the highest quality organic saffron in the world—a potent spice more precious than gold. Korres extracts the full power of this hand-picked, one-day fresh saffron at its maximum antioxidant levels and combines it with beta-glucans, peptides, and amino acids to create this elixir that strengthens skin’s resistance to daily damage. A complex of amino acids, polysaccharides, and copper supports natural collagen production to help visibly firm and lift skin while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Low molecular weight hyaluronic acid easily and deeply penetrates the skin to smooth, plump, and brighten. Much more than your typical serum, this universal and powerful booster repairs all visible signs of aging for all skin types and concerns. Experience a few golden drops every day for youthful-looking, glowing skin. It takes 70,000 krocus flowers—which bloom only once per year for two weeks—to produce just one pound of Greek saffron. Each flower is hand-picked and the three delicate red saffron stigmas are hand-separated to preserve the potent antioxidant properties of this rare and precious spice. The unused parts of the flowers are returned to soil as organic fertilizer for the following year’s harvest, making this a zero waste, sustainable operation. The elixir is 94.9 percent natural and like all Korres formulations, it is made without petrolatum, mineral oil, silicones, propylene glycol, and ethanolamines.


WHAT I LIKED:  KORRES GOLDEN KRUCUS  is pretty good and i actually love it. It gives my skin a glow and i love using this in the morning

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: The price tag. This is about $98 at sephora.

PRICE: $98

AVAILABLE:  KORRES GOLDEN KRUCUS

FALL TREND--- BERRY ADDICTION

So one of the fall trends is the berry color. If you go to any store, and look around all you see is berry colored clothing. Its in the jeans, the sweaters and the shirts. You can even get socks and underwear in the color. I picked out some lipsticks and eyeshadows that had this berry color.

This is the first year that i have had the craving for the berry colors. I am excited for the fall and to start wearing the berry colors. The lipsticks about are top to bottom maybelline, and wet n wild and this sample palette from coastal scents has a pretty shimmery berry color in it.

If you know of any eye palettes that have more berry colors then let me know in the comments below.

Also what is your favorite fall thing that you are looking forward too?

    So if you missed the video where i unboxed this last month on my youtube channel, then let me explain.
I had ipsy before and i stopped the subscription because it was not any good any more. I have been seeing that they were getting better so i thought i would try it again

NEW FAVORITE SKINCARE PRODUCTS/ IMAGE SKINCARE


 
I love trying new skincare. Without proper skincare, our makeup just looks crappy. So today we are talking about 3 different products that Image skincare was kind enough to send to me.
I will break each one down separately and talk about each one. 
So let's get started.


WHAT IS IT: The first one we are talking about is a daily tinted moisturizer that is oil free and has an SPF of 30+ and it also has UVA/UVB protection  as well.
It contains zinc oxide, and titanium dioxide.






WHAT IS DOES: It is a skincare for your face which also has the added benefit of having a slight tint, which gives you an all over skin tone and glow. It contains a next generation blend of anti-oxidants as free-radical scavengers to decrease damaging effects of the sun and environmental exposures. It is lightweight, sheer formula absorbs quickly into the skin and its also  paraben Free.

WHAT I LIKED: I love the fact that i can put this onto my face  and it gives me a healthy glow without the added weight of foundation as well as protecting my skin. It does recommend reapplying every two hours. I also like that it is oil free, so there is no worrying about any added oil. This is also a water resistant formula that  provides chemical free high sun protection.


WHAT I DIDNT LIKE: I find that for me, this works better when i use a smaller amount. I tried using this with the same amount as i would with foundation but for this to work i had to make sure it was blended, But when this is blended it looks great.



AVAILABLE: daily-tinted-moisturizer





WHAT IS IT: Balancing lip enhancement complex  is specifically designed to enhance the appearance and volume of lip contours. This ultra-hydrating, powerful polypeptide lip enhancement complex will add up to 40% of moisture volume with repeat usage. This also diminishes fine lines as well as reduces inflammation after lip injections. Use of product will complement and enhance the effects of professional dermal fillers. This is also paraben free.







WHAT IT DOES:  This  claims to be an Anti-aging polypeptide lip enhancement complex that visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, and it  helps keep lips hydrated in the morning and evening while adding volume to the lips and the anti-aging benefits increase with continued use. 


WHAT I LIKED: I love this product. It really does hydrate your lips. Also, I have started noticing more volume to my lips.

WHAT I DIDNT LIKE: There is nothing that i didnt like about this. This is the best product for your lips that i have used.



AVAILABLE: ormedic balancing-lip-enhancement-complex



WHAT IS IT: Vital C Hydrating repair creme  is an ultra-hydrating anti-oxidant repair crème that contains vitamins A, C, E that  nourish and protect skin daily for ultimate anti-aging benefits, and this is also paraben free as well .



WHAT IT DOES: This hydrating repair crème contains an ultra hydrating Vitamin C and anti-oxidant rich emollient formula that repairs aging skin while promoting healthy cell renewal.

WHAT I LIKED: This comes with a little scooper that you can see in the lid above. I also love the smell. It smells very citrus like but not over powering at all. I use this at night as the second to last step of my skincare and im in love with this and how my skin looks. I love using vitamin c on my skin.

WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: There was nothing that i didn't like about this product.



AVAILABLE:vitamin-c hydrating-repair-cr-me




 OVERALL THOUGHTS:  I love all three of these products. We need sunscreen for our skin and i love that i can wear the tinted moisturizer and it gives me an over all glow with the added benefit of sunscreen. I love the lip complex. It is truly the best product that i have used on my lips.  I also love the repair creme, it really does help to hydrate your skin and promote cell renewal. I recommend that you pick up all three of these products and start using them today because you and your skin needs them.

HOW TO GET PLUMPER LIPS




Are you wanting plumper lips?
If so then keep reading.
I was sent this from pmd
so let me tell you my thoughts and then at the end watch  the video that i posted on youtube to see this in action.


WHAT IS IT:   PMD Kiss is a smart anti-aging lip plumping treatment. With daily use, PMD Kiss will boost collagen and create long lasting plumped up results.




WHAT IT DOES: It uses pulsating vacuum technology and specially formulated serum to create a fuller appearance of lip volume and restore youthfulness to lips.
The initial use will create a naturally more vibrant lip color with a volume increase and with regular use, you will see the long term effects of reduced lip lines and wrinkles. This creates a natural look not any duck lips..
You simply apply the serum on your lips and let it absorb for 60 to 90 seconds. This helps increase the circulation and increase plumping results. This comes with a small and large tip so that you can choose the tip that will work best for your size lips. There are two different speeds. You divide your lips into either 4 or 6 sections. Do about 15 to 20 pulsations in each sections.  then you apply the serum after using the tool to get even more plumping. The serum has hyaluronic acid and an ingredient to increase circulation and plumping.
Also, the pulsating suction of the device stimulates the production of collagen, your lips should begin to be naturally more plump over time. 






WHAT I LIKED:  The thing I really like about this is that it is super easy to use and you dont have to worry about the effects only lasting for a few hours like some other products. It also gives you natural looking lips vs the others giving you ridiculous looking lips. I have been using this for several weeks and I have already seen a difference.






WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: I am going to be honest and there in nothing that i didn't like.
I love this product.







PRICE: $139


AVAILABLE:pmdbeauty
