Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturizer Review


In this post I will be reviewing Valentia Pure Glow Brightening Moisturize, I'm so glad that this came right on time after I finished using my Caudalie Moisturizer in my Italy trip.  I really like the consistency of this moisturizer, it's very lightweight and the cream glides on smoothly.   This moisturizer has helped me with the following:
  • Lighten dark spots
  • Restore skin radiance
  • Even skin tone
  • Diminish fine lines
  • Provide all-day hydration 
KEY INGREDIENTS:
  • Botanical Hyaluronic Acid: Floods skin with moisture, supports skin elasticity, and plumps skin from within.
  • Kojic Acid: Controls melanin production and prevents dark spots.
  • Ginseng: Boosts skin firming collagen, fights wrinkles, and gives the skin a brighter and more energized look.
  • Safflower Oil: Repairs skin's natural moisture barrier and provide superior skin protection.
  • Shea Butter: Infuses skin with a myriad of vitamins and nutrients for superior skin hydration and nourishment. 
I really like how this moisturizer nourish my skin and giving me a radiant glow when I'm ready to hit out the door. I think it's important in finding a good skincare that helps in long term. As I aged I've been looking endlessly in finding the right skincare that works for me. I tend to spurge more on skincare than makeups these days.  I hope you have an opportunity in trying this product out.

Ark Skin Care Review

I'm finally back from my vacation to Italy.  My vacation was just breathtaking and I enjoyed every single moment while I was there.  I will post about my trip another time, but today I have a review that I want to share.

I'm currently trying this new brand called ARK AGE AWARE SKINCARE - age defend replenishing moisturizer and skin perfector hydration injection mask.  This is my first time trying this  brand and it's a British Skincare brand that is highly recommended by Beauty Editors. I really enjoy using the both of these moisturizer because it nourish my skin by making my skin look radiant and fresh.  It's important to start protecting your skin as you age and certainly I want to look good as I'm aging.  The skin perfector has an intensive multivitamin hydration injection masque to quench your skin, plump wrinkles and restore vibrancy.  This is good to use once a week when you are tired, stressed and lacking of radiance.  Overall these two products has helped me by restoring my skin.

Spot Dessert Bar


Normally I don't really crave for dessert as much ever since I started exercising, but sometimes a good dessert hits the right spot makes my day brighter.  I recently got the opportunity to check out this dessert joint located at St. Mark area in New York City.  There are many times I always passed by but never had a chance to try this place and so I took my opportunity to try this place out. I ordered their dessert tapas and the dessert tapas that I ordered are:  Golden Toast - honey buttered toast, condensed milk,  Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake - warm soft dark chocolate cake, green tea ganache, green tea ice cream, walnut soil and lastly The Harvest - layers of berries, soft cheesecake, meringue kisses served with raspberry sorbet and black rose milk tea. The desserts that I ordered were very refreshing and it was interesting how each of the desserts complimented each other.  The desserts I like the most were Golden Toast and the Chocolate Green Tea Lava Cake, because the two dessert dishes weren't overpowering sweet.  The Harvest was very interesting because it came in a garden pot, however it's very sweet and with layers of berries and soft cheesecake with meringue kisses really adds in the extra punch of being overly sweet. I personally think it was a nice experience and definitely would like to go back there again to try some of their other desserts that I haven't got to.

Studio Gear Revitalizing Day Serum and the Dual Identity Mineral Powder Review


How's everyone summer going so far?  Today I will be reviewing the Studio Gear Revitalizing Day Serum and the Dual Identity Mineral Powder.  This is my first time trying this, personally I'm not a powder person because I have dry skin.  Using powder would make my face looks even cakier and drier. However this mineral powder can apply in 4 ways and so I put it to the test.

I applied the day serum on my face to help moisturize my face.  Then I applied it wet and here's my before and after look.  This mineral powder helped me covered my dark circles and some of my dark spots.  This mineral powder also gave me a smooth matte finish, which I really like.  My uneven skin tone has even out pretty well using this powder.
