UMA Natural Oils

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

UMA is a line of luxury, organic beauty and wellness products that harvest over 500 years of Ayurveda family secrets to deliver lasting beauty.

Grown, extracted and formulated entirely at a lush family estate in India. UMA oils are 100% natural and organic, making them some of the purest oils ever created!

Absolute Anti Aging Face Oil

The first product I received is the Absolute Anti-Aging Face Oil. This ultra luxurious blend combines nature’s most potent botanicals to reverse visible signs of aging and to transform damaged skin or dry skin. Rich frankincense essential oil balances pH and promotes rapid cell turnover, to catalyze production of healthy new skin cells. Juniper berry essential oil acts as an astringent and antiseptic, to quickly reverse the effects of age and environmental factors. Vitamin C-rich orange essential oil alleviates fine lines and age spots, while sandalwood essential oil neutralizes inflammation for softer, brighter, and more youthful skin.

Ultimate Brightening Face Oil

The second product I received is the Ultimate Brightening Face Oil. This triple-action brightening blend is rich in sandalwood and rose essential oils, which deliver rich hydration for a more luminous complexion, and is especially effective for those with dry skin. Vitamin-rich orange and neroli essential oils, along with rejuvenating frankincense essential oil, stimulate rapid cellular turnover to regenerate damaged skin cells, diminish visible signs of fatigue, and even out skin tone – for visibly radiant skin. This blend is formulated in a pomegranate oil base, to speed up absorption and ensure active ingredients rapidly penetrate the epidermis.

Deeply Clarifying Face Oil

The last product I received is the Deeply Clarifying Face Oil. This gentle yet high-impact formula balances and moisturizes as it combats impurities and bacteria in acne-prone skin. Anti-microbial clove essential oil combats infection, while tea tree essential oil curtails the skin’s excess oil production. Lavender and clary sage essential oils regulate the skin’s natural sebum production, to prevent the over-drying and breakage that can leave the skin vulnerable to bacteria and external toxins, which makes it an excellent choice for those with oily skin or combination skin. This blend is formulated in a grapeseed oil base – rich in linoleic acid and Omega-3 fatty acids, for reducing inflammation.

D’OR 24K Introduces Multi-Vitamin Recovery Day Cream and Facial Peel!

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

D’OR 24K is a Miami based ultra-premium skin care retailer serving discerning consumers worldwide. They understand their customers’ need for quality skin care products and they strive to bring them the best the skincare world has to offer. They hand select every ingredient that goes into our products to ensure they offer effective, reliable results our customers can depend on.

The first product I received is a Multi Vitamin Recovery Day Cream. This cream is a highly concentrated cream infused with precious metals. D’OR 24K contains actual 24 karat gold, and that’s not just to add glamour. Gold supports your skin’s natural collagen production, which helps it to appear younger, healthier, and more beautiful. This cream has a modern touch and the addition of pure gold helps melt away your fine lines and wrinkles. The gold works in conjunction with green tea to protect your skin from sun damage, reduce inflammation, and build collagen. D’OR 24K contains Simmondsia Chinensis Seed (Jojoba) Oil, an emollient that improves skin elasticity and suppleness. Its natural tocopherols minimize oxidation and lipid peroxidation, which slows the aging process.

The second product I received is a Multi Vitamin Recovery Facial Peeling. D’OR 24K Facial Peel starts with a glycolic acid called Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA). AHA has the unique ability to attract moisture and stimulate healthy collagen production, even in dry or sun damaged skin. As the old skin cells are washed away, pores appear smaller; fine lines and wrinkles disappear, too. 24 karat gold and green tea boost collagen even more, leaving you with extraordinary looking skin.

June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore

32025247

Book Description

Cassie Danvers is holed up in her family’s crumbling mansion in small-town Ohio, mourning the loss of her grandmother, June. But the noise of the rusted doorbell forces her out of isolation. Cassie has been named the sole heir to legendary movie star Jack Montgomery’s fortune.

Soon Jack’s famous daughters arrive, entourage in tow, determined to wrestle Cassie away from an inheritance they feel is theirs. Together, they come to discover the true reason for June’s silence about the summer she was eighteen, when Hollywood came to town, and June and Jack’s lives were forever altered.

Shifting deftly between the past and present, Cassie and her guests will be forced to reexamine their legacies, their definition of family, and what it truly means to love someone, steadfastly, across the ages.

My Thoughts

June was a richly layered family saga that swept back and forth through time, showing us the different characters who populated the town and Two Oaks in 1955 and then fast forwarded to the present. As the story finally unfolded, more and more secrets were revealed and I could not stop reading to find out what would happen next! The story had many beautiful moments and some sad. This book was such a great read!

Balm Skincare

Balm Skincare is a raw and organic skincare program designed without chemical synthetics and preservatives to provide real results with real ingredients. Balm Skincare is creating higher standards in skincare!

DSC_0148-2

Face Cream – This is Balm’s best selling product and it targets hydration. Hydration is the key to skin longevity and youthfulness. Balm Face Cream combines moisture, butters and carrier oils for instant nourishment that promotes hydration all day long! Continual usage of this face cream may slow natural oil production over time for balanced and healthy skin.

DSC_0098-2

Raw Honey Cleanser with Charcoal – Balm Skincare uses raw honey as a base for cleansing due to its antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties.  The glycolic acid content in raw honey promotes cell turnover as the cleanser is massaged into the skin.

Activated charcoal is an excellent detoxifying and purifying agent used to flush away impurities! Turmeric is added as an anti-inflammatory agent and it brightens and balances the skin tone. Turmeric infuses for several weeks to maximize the cleanser’s anti-inflammatory and cleansing properties.

DSC_0207-2

Toning Water – Toning is an essential step in any skincare routine! Balm Toning Water uses the properties of apple cider vinegar and witch hazel to maintain pH balance.  The added benefits of lemon balm, chamomile, rose, calendula, comfrey, lemon peel, rosemary and sage combine to create a powerful astringent to close and tighten the pores without over-drying. This step preps the face for moisturizing and pairs perfectly with Balm Face Cream.

DSC_0008-2

Buffing Grains with Seaweed – Balm Buffing Grains with Seaweed uses the exfoliating power of ground oats, almonds, roses and lavender to encourage surface cell turnover and reveal noticeably soft, smooth, youthful skin.

Oats contain saponins that act as a mild cleanser and are known to heal and soothe skin sensitivities and inflammation. Kaolin clay is the mildest of clays, used to stimulate circulation and tighten pores without drawing oils from the skin. Dulse (seaweed) is a red marine algae that provides added antioxidant properties and extra moisture.

VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask For All Night Repair

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

I recently discovered VII Code a few weeks ago. I decided to try out their eye mask because I have really bad dark circles and bags under my eyes.

These easy-to-use under eye pads are the first eye masks that are safe to use for 8 hours. My skin felt so refreshed and invigorated when I woke up. I love this eye mask because it actually works and all you have to do is peel, stick, and go to sleep.

I highly recommend trying out this eye mask and get the VII Code O2M Oxygen Eye Mask For All Night Repair here!

Abomination by Jane Dougherty

cover109443-medium

Book Description

Carla and Tully are picnicking in the quad of their international high school in central Paris when the end of the world begins. They are sucked into a wormhole that spits them out five years later to find that the world is a freezing desolation but still hanging on, waiting for something even worse to finish it off. The something worse turns out to be the Burnt Man and his horsemen. Taken prisoner by the Flay Tribe to their lair in the ruins of a shopping mall, Tully is forced to become a warrior, while Carla joins the other girls as a kitchen slave and comfort woman.

Tully might like the idea of playing soldiers, but Carla knows what is waiting for the girls when the food runs out, and it isn’t pleasant. The supermarket holy man’s vision of the return of the Burnt Man and his demon friends drags Tully back to reality. When the four fiends are reunited, the Apocalypse will really begin. Carla and Tully don’t plan on being there when that happens.

But in this post-Abomination world where only the young and brutal have survived, where food and fuel are running out and the climate is plunging into another final ice age, there is nowhere to run—except down another wormhole, with no idea of what might be waiting for them at the other end.

My Thoughts

Abomination is the first book in the Pathfinder series. The main characters are Carla and Tully. Carla and Tully are teenagers who are having lunch at their high school in Paris when all of a sudden an apocalypse starts. While they are trying to get to a safe place, they manage to fall through time by being sucked into a wormhole. They end up five years in the future where they find out that the world was completely destroyed.

At first I was not sure if I would like this book but I was wrong. I really liked it! This book was a quick read. There were a few things that happened in the book that had me a little bit confused. Some parts of the book reminded me of the movie The Day After Tomorrow.

This book is for young adults, but it does not come with a happy ever after ending. This book can stand alone as a complete story but the ending makes it clear that there is much more to come. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Pathfinder series!
