Radha Beauty's Clearing Serum Review

One of my favorite new companies is RADHA BEAUTY. Radha Beauty has a full line of 100% all natural, cruelty-free skin oil products. They also use eco-friendly packaging.

This skin clearing serum from Radha Beauty improves skin tone and reduces wrinkles. This product contains: Vitamin C, Retinol, Salicylic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Rosehip and Lavender Oil.

Why this product is awesome:

**POWERFUL FORMULA - contains a powerful combination of active ingredients such as Vitamin C, Retinol, botanical hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and Niacinamide

**GENTLE ON THE SKIN - It is full of natural and organic ingredients that make it safe for all skin types - even oily skin. Glides on smoothly and absorbs fast and won't irritate or burn your skin!

I used this product starting about 2 weeks ago and have fell in love with it. It works wonders. I've had a mild case of acne since I was a teenager, 15 years later. Yep, it's still there. This product has cleared up my skin and left it feeling moisturized and refreshed and wrinkle free. It has tighten and toned my skin and pores. I love that it is all natural.

Argan Oil - 100% Pure & USDA Organic Review

100 % Pure Argan Oil made by Gopure Naturals Review

I got the opportunity to sample a product I've heard of in products before but never had gotten a chance to try. I received my sample from Tomoson through Amazon. This product is great because not only is it USDA certified Organic but it is also cold pressed and triple purified. 

ARGAN OIL comes from the Argan Forest in Morocco. There it has been used for centuries by natives and people the world over as a natural healing agent and for it's moisturizing properties. The fruit of the ARGAN tree is nutritious that goats in the region will climb the trees just to savor the taste. The oil actually comes from the seed or nut of the fruit on the tree.

So what to do with ARGAN OIL???

1. You can add it to products you already have in your home, or instead of them
  • Add it to your shampoo to naturally moisturize your hair, you might be thinking..."put oil in my hair?" YES you can. Just make sure to rinse it out... 1 tsp. to 1 cup of shampoo.
  • Facial Moisturizer-  apply a drop or two and massage onto face and neck, either 1st thing in the morning or at night
  • Sugar Scrub- for your lips or face add 4 drops ARGAN OIL to 1 tsp brown sugar and a drop of vanilla extract. Apply onto face in a circular motion and then remove.
  • Add to a squirt bottle fill 95% with water and 5% with ARGAN OIL for a detangling spray and to reduce frizz
  • Used as a natural beard oil, it soothes irritation after shaving as well.
  • It can be used as a soothing remedy for bug bites or Chicken Pox
  • You can also use it in food instead of canola, or vegetable oil and has healthier properties than even almond oil
You can purchase this product here: 

My review from Amazon.com:

Love it... I've been adding it to products I already use, such as my shampoo and I make a nice sugar scrub mask with it. It makes my skin and hair so soft and natural feeling. The smell is different but not bad. It is a subtly pleasant grapey/prune smell. Wonder what else I can use it for???? Check out simplysamples.blogspot.com

I received courtesy of Tomoson this product to review and test, any opinions are my own.

* It contains more HCA than any other product out there, 75%

I look forward to continuing with this product. It has only been two weeks and I have toned up and shed some water weight. I have lost 1 1/2" on my waist.

What the Product Did for Me?

I have color treated, in the summer and winter dry and flaky scalp kind of hair. Never in a million years did I consider using a shampoo that has oil in it, until now. I thought it might leave my hair oily and greasy looking. I was pleasantly surprised to see that my hair after the 1st wash, was NO LONGER flaky and I had zero dandruff. But also, my hair felt natural, soft, flowy, light weight and smelled great. It is also all natural and contains about 8 ingredients each. I will continue to use this product and will encourage anyone to at least give it a try.

SM-150 Finger Pulse Oximeter Review

I was excited to get to review the SM-150 Finger Pulse Oximeter. I thought it would be great for assuring myself that I am fine when I'm having a panic attack or anxiety (medical condition that I have), also I thought it would be great for my mother who had gotten sick with pneumonia and was having breathing complications and she actually ended up having to have an oxygen tank due to some medical complications. So, this was wonderful in helping with that situation.

I tried out this product and was wonderfully surprised as this is the first time I've actually wanted mud on my face! It was surprisingly refreshing with a hint of peppermint smell. It made my skin wonderfully soft and also shrank my pores, which unfortunately is what i look for in products, so this is a great product for myself. It made me feel like I was at a spa. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
