Review: Volition Beauty Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting Oil #volitionbeauty #hibiscus #unspottablecorrectingoil #faceoil #hyperpigmentation

(product photo courtesy of www.volitionbeauty.com)


1.1 fl.oz./35mL $49.00

Volition Beauty is a very interesting company that makes products based on customer's ideas. They solicit ideas from beauty enthusiasts (like myself) and if the company likes the idea they will make the product and compensate the person for their idea. I happen to think this is a novel concept for a company and one that is overdue. I like the idea of requesting customers for product ideas because they are the ones that will be purchasing the products.  

If you have hyperpigmentation and want to correct it, there are a few ways. One of which is a new oil that helps correct the dark spots via hibiscus flower. It is the new Volition Beauty Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting OilHibiscus is a tropical flower that helps lighten hyperpigmentation, it's nature's answer to dark spots and discoloration. It's what supercharges this non-greasy treatment oil to visibly correct, brighten and even skin tone. The flower contains naturally occurring acids to minimize the appearance of dark spots and discoloration (hyperpigmentation). Licorice Root visibly brightens and evens skin tone. Sea Buckthorn Oil nourishes and helps with the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Spikenard Flower Extract, soothes stressed and irritated skin.

This oil helps reduce the appearance of dark spots and discolorations, otherwise known as hyperpigmentation. It hydrates and helps improve moisture retention. Also, it soothes the appearance of stressed skin. And it minimizes the appearance of fine line and wrinkles. The skin concerns it takes care of are dark spots and discolorations, stressed, sensitive skin, dry, dull skin, fine lines and wrinkles. The oil works for the following skin types: normal to dry skin. Use it when you want to take dark spots out of the light. 


To use, apply 2 to 3 drops to face, neck and décolletage. Use twice daily for best results. This oil is cruelty-free, vegan. gluten-free and is part of Volition Beauty's dedication to clean beauty.

I noticed results in about 3 weeks because I use it at night only. I have a friend who uses it twice daily and she has noticed a difference in about 2 weeks. But she definitely noticed a big difference. She has more hyperpigmentation than I do, and she loves this oil. I was the one who recommended it to her and I am glad I did because she is very happy with it. The reason I recommended it to her is because I had heard so many good things about it and I also trust Volition Beauty and their products. Their products do work and work very well. They design their products around their customer's ideas and ingredient requests, so they must know what they are doing. I would not recommend this for anyone with oily or acneic skin but if you have normal or combination skin it might work okay for you.

Volition Beauty Hibiscus Unspottable Correcting Oil retails for $49.00 and can be purchased online at www.volitionbeauty.com.

Review: Kocostar Split End Therapy Mask #kocostar #splitendtherapymask #hairmask #mask

(product photo courtesy of www.kocostarusa.com)

Kocostar is a Korean company that makes all kinds of wonderful sheet masks for treatment. They have masks for skin, hair, hands and feet. I have tried a few of them and this review will be about the Split End Therapy Mask. It is a very easy mask to use and have around just in case. 

The Split End Therapy mask is for helping the split ends of your hair. It is very easy to use and it isn't washed out afterward. It stays in the hair until you wash it next time. 

I like this mask because I have very thick hair that doesn't get much is the way of moisture but desperately needs split end therapy ot cover up my split ends. So I used it. First you make a ponytail with your hair, unroll the mask and make an opening wide enough for your hair to go through. Slide hair into the wrap accordingly. Massage hair for 15 minutes. After this time, comb through and style using hair dryer. 

This mask really helps dry, brittle hair be softer again. If only until the next washing, right? Any conditioner is going to help soften hair and make hair beautiful next to the Kocostar mask. However, not every conditioner remains on the hair and leaves it not greasy or too wet looking, etc. 

When I tried to apply the mask, the wrap wouldn't stay on my hair and stay tied. So I improvised and scooped up all the conditioner from the hair wrap and applied it to the hair myself. Then I waited and brushed through. It worked just as well and it was easier. My hair is so long though it is halfway down my back. 

Kocostar Split End Therapy Mask retails for $5.00 per packet. It can be purchased online at www.kocostarusa.comLike Kocostar on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/kocostarusa/; Follow Kocostar on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/kocostar/ and Follow Kocostar on Instagram: https://instagram.com/kocostarusa

Review: amika supernova moisture and shine cream #amika #supernova #moistureandshinecream

(product photo courtesy of www.loveamika.com)

3.3 fl.oz./100mL $25.00

I was born with thick, medium, slightly wavy hair. Just wavy enough to be annoying but not wavy enough to make it look good. So, I depend on hair styling products to be work horses for my hair because I need to reduce the frizz from a lack of moisture in my hair. My hair and scalp are always dry.

Recently I received a tube of amika supernova moisture and shine cream in my BoxyCharm box for February. That was just about the highlight of the whole box to me, but that is better left for a rant. Anyway, I tried the cream on my hair and and it made it immediately shiny, softer and smelled amazing. It also did add moisture to my hair where there was none before. supernova is a weightless leave-in cream that helps provide superior hydration and lightweight-conditioning, leaving hair supernaturally soft and smooth with brilliant shine. And it does. 

This product is safe for color treated hair, is gluten-free, mineral oil free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, phthalate-free, petrolatum-free and doesn't contain any artificial colors. It does however, contain butylene glycol with is an organic alcohol primarily used in skincare products as a humectant and slip agent. It helps to boost hair's moisture while providing a silky, smooth texture. Sodium Cocoyl Amino Acids help restore shine and smoothness to hair making it look and feel healthy again. Sea Buckthorn Oil is rich in Vitamins A and C, antioxidants and healthy Omega Fatty Acids including the essential Omega-7. 

To use, distribute throughout damp hair and style as usual. Can also be used on dry hair to tame flyaways or refresh dry ends. That is mainly how I use it. I prefer to use it on hair that is dry and in need of some softening cream that adds moisture. 

amika supernova moisture and shine cream retails for $25.00 and can be purchased online at www.loveamika.com or purchased in salons nationwide. I think it is also available at ULTA stores nationwide too.

Review: goli apple cider vinegar gummies #goligummy #applecidervinegar #goli #B12 #FolicAcid

(product photo courtesy of www.goli.com)


60 gummies/$19.00

OMG!!!!! I have found the most delicious vitamin supplement ever. It is called goli apple cider vinegar gummies and these gummies are the most delicious thing I think I have ever tried. You've heard the old adage that an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Well try fermenting the apple, turn it into apple cider vinegar and add a few friends to help make it taste even better and be better for you. Then you have the most wonderful, tastiest gummy vitamins around. 

Goli has a lot of great ingredients and benefits to it. I will list them all down here so you can get as much information from this review as possible. Goli is the world's 1st Apple Cider Vinegar Gummy. The gummy is made in California, in a FDA-registered cGMP certified and an allergen-free facility, with vegan, gelatin-free, gluten-free, allergy-free content and the highest quality registered ingredients. 

The best thing about goli gummies, besides their taste, are the wonderful health benefits they provide you. I am talking about appetite control and weight loss, lowering blood sugar levels, made with "the Mother" (whole apples), improves the immune system, contains highly nutritious acetic acid 5%, infused with superfoods (pomegranate & beetroot), enriched with Vitamins B9 & B12, safe for tooth enamel, great tasting, yummy smell and easy to take, just chew and swallow. Those are a lot of benefits, right? And most of these are better than just taking a shot of apple cider vinegar. It takes 2 gummies to equal 1 shot of apple cider vinegar. The nutrition label has the following information on it:
  • Serving Size is 1 gummy
  • Calories per gummy: 15
  • Total Carbohydrates: 4g
  • Total Sugars: 1g
  • Folic Acid 200 mg DFE 50% DV (daily value)
  • Vitamin B12: 1.2 mcg 50% DV
  • Apple Cider Vinegar 500mg (5% acetic acid) 1 DV
For someone like myself, who doesn't eat red meat, these gummies are ideal to help get my needed daily value of Vitamin B12, which is high in meat, cheese, eggs, etc. I don't eat much dairy except yogurt for the bacteria. Some other benefits that you might notice from taking the goli gummies is more energy by maintaining blood sugar levels, a better complexion by restoring skin's natural acidity and it can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels too. 

Pomegranate is an important ingredient in the gummy. This superfruit has a lot going for it. Pomegranates are a delicious source of important nutrients. You will find that both its peel and seeds offer a generous amount of nutrients and bioactive plant compounds. These are called punicalagins and punicic acid. Beetroots are a popular superfood for all of the fibre, vitamins and minerals they contain. Did you know that beets have been recognized for their beneficial properties for centuries? These beets help give the goli gummy that yummy taste everyone enjoys! Vitamin B12 is added because a Vitamin B12 deficiency causes serious fatigue and exhaustion. Vitamin B12 helps with energy and this in turn makes it easier to stick with exercise and weight loss goals. When combining apple cider vinegar with B12 it can be a dynamic-duo in weight goals. Vitamin B9, also called folate or folic acid, is one of 8 B vitamins.  Folic acid plays an important role in human growth and development. It is an important supplement to take when you are pregnant and is still important to help the nervous system function properly.



One nice thing that goli does is give back to the community. With every purchase you make, goli provides a child in need with a 6 month does of vitamins. Every purchase provides a 1-to-1 Vitamin grant through their partnership with Vitamin Angels. goli apple cider vinegar gummies retail for $19.00 per 60 gummies, enough for a month. They also come in a 3 pack for $57.00 and 5 bottles for $89.00. They can be purchased online at https://go.goli.com/iamthemakeupjunkie and in health food stores. Like goli on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GoliGummy/; Follow goli on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/GoliGummy/ and Follow goli on Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.ca/goligummy/.

Use the promo code iamthemakeupjunkie for a 5% savings on your order of goli gummies. I guarantee that you will love them and love how they make you feel. You will have more energy, a better complexion, a better mood and antioxidants to protect against aging

Review: Grecian Soap Company Goat's Milk & Olive Oil Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub Bar #greciansoap #goatsmilk #oliveoil #pinkhimalayansalt #soap

(product photo courtesy of www.greciansoap.com)


5 oz./142g $7.50

The Grecian Soap Company makes all kinds of soaps and one of which is called the Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub Bar. It is the perfect solution to help get rid of rough skin on your feet, elbows and knees, while applying the benefits of Goat's Milk and Olive Oil soap to those areas at the same time. The soap helps exfoliate, moisturize and soothe your skin while it's anti-inflammatory properties helps to heal it. It comes fragranced with their very popular Island Citrus scent. 

If Winter's chill makes your skin dry and cracked, exfoliate first with this lovely soap that will also help to heal the dryness and cracks. I would avoid using this in intimate areas as it is very exfoliating but it works like a charm on feet, elbows and knees. Definitely a nice addition to your shower regimen. 

I like this soap because it helps to exfoliate the cracks and calluses on my feet, which are there all year long but ramp up in winter time. I definitely need a soap like this. It is one of the ones that I would highly recommend. I like that the Goat's Milk helps soothe my dry skin. Unfortunately I have very dry skin and having a soap like this helps to soothe my dry skin and ease the cracks in my feet. Definitely a great bar!

Grecian Soap Pink Himalayan Salt Scrub Bar retails for $7.50. It can be purchased online at www.greciansoap.comLike Grecian Soap on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thegreciansoapcompany and Follow Grecian Soap on Twitter: @GrecianSoap.

Review: Grecian Soap Company Goat's Milk & Olive Oil Rose Clay With Activated Charcoal Soap #GrecianSoap #GoatsMilk #OliveOil #RoseClay #AcitvatedCharcoal #Soap

(product photo courtesy of www.greciansoap.com)

5 oz/142g $8.25

If you have skin that is oily, congested or acneic, then I have a great cleansing bar soap for you. Try out the Grecian Soap Company's Goat's Milk & Olive Oil Rose Clay & Activated Charcoal Soap. This soap is one of their best bars yet! The combination of both of these ingredients makes this the ultimate facial soap for trapping toxins, oil, dirt and debris that is in your pores (hair follicles) by drawing them out and making your pores smaller at the same time. Plus, if that isn't enough, having those two ingredients in a base of Goat's Milk soap gives you all the benefits that come with with Goat's Milk (creamy lather, removes dead skin cells, as well as anti-inflammatory and it also has moisturizing benefits). Just try this soap and you will see for yourself. 

To use, wet hands and lather each side of the soap to get both ingredients. Apply to face and cleanse. After 1 minute rinse with warm water and pat dry. Skin should feel clean and not oily. Use twice daily. I recommend this soap for skins that are combination, oily and acneic. I think it would work well too for skin that is normal in the summer, when sebum production tends to increase. It should help with redness and irritation caused by acne and should help decrease acne lesions. I am not guaranteeing this but I think it would based on the ingredients and the type of soap it is. If it doesn't then stop using it and try another regimen.

Review: Grecian Soap Company Goat's Milk & Olive Oil Soap #GrecianSoap #GoatsMilk #OliveOil #Soap

(product photo courtesy of www.greciansoap.com)

5 oz./142g $7.50

I received some soaps from the Grecian Soap Company to try out and OMG do I love them. These rich and creamy soaps are the best I have ever used. Exceptionally mild and creamy, this soap leaves no residue on your skin and has excellent skincare qualities. They are made from half Goat's Milk and half Olive Oil. Soaps like these are definitely the best of both worlds. With its natural anti-aging properties, vitamins and antioxidants, the soaps help skin retain moisture making it feel incredible. They combine the two best ingredients for your skin, Goat' s milk and Olive oil. 

Goat's Milk is extremely good for the skin, as it helps to calm, soothe and gets rid of inflammation. Olive Oil is great for moisturizing and nourishing, not to mention fine lines and wrinkles. Soaps like these are exceptionally creamy, moisturizing and rich. After using them, your skin will not feel dry but will feel soft, supple and deeply nourished. There are 16 different scents, I tried Island Citrus, Japanese Cherry Blossom and Rosemary Mint. My favorite is Japanese Cherry Blossom. The soaps are high in antioxidants such as Vitamins A and E, and they also have the ability to renew and repair skin. It is said that olive oil stimulates skin cells leading to a natural regrowth and maintenance of healthy, firm skin. Another nice thing is that these soaps are huge, they come in 5 oz. bars, so they last a long time as long as you leave them in a soap dish. 

Personally, I find that these can not only be used on the body, but can also be used on the face too, since they are so gentle and help to combat inflammation and any sort of redness and irritation. I looked at the ingredients and did not find any that would cause clogged pores. These soaps are wonderful with great scents that you will love. Grecian Soap Company uses the finest ingredients around to help make your skin the best its ever been.

Review: Queen V: A New Intimate Care Brand For Women #maintainyourv #queenv #intimatecare

(product photos courtesy of www.queenvlife.com)



Queen V Essentials Kit $39.00
A New Intimate Care Brand For Women 

Queen V is a new intimate care brand for women that is on the marketplace, and it is different than the other lines already out there. First of all, feminine wellness can be confusing and embarrassing, women already have a lot of choices to deal with and some of them are not the right ones. Queen V knows because they’ve been there. They have created an easy-to-follow three-step process to maintaining, healing and enjoying your vagina. They are a female-powered team focused on normalizing the conversations surrounding women’s health.



First of all, the pH level of your vagina is acidic, from 3.8-4.5. Most vaginal cleansers are a base, with a pH level around 9-10. That alone can set off a host of problems with your vagina, causing secretions to increase, bad bacteria to flourish and irritation to occur. Luckily the Queen V products all have a pH level of 4.5-5, making them suitable for vaginal care. Also, vagina is not a dirty word. Use the word in its context and you will not feel embarrassed. I taught my kids to say vagina and penis in normal conversation and they say it without hesitation. 

I purchased the Queen V Essentials Kit to try out and review because I feel that it is every woman's desire to feel fresh and clean in her vaginal region. Yes, normally we may not but that doesn't mean we aren't. Our vaginas work as self-cleaning mechanisms, with the secretions it makes clearing out bad bacteria and debris from the vagina daily. But for some reason it always has an odor that is not pleasant to our noses, even though that odor is natural and expected, say OB/GYNs. The problems occur when discharge from the vagina becomes either white and chunky with an odor and/or greenish and foul smelling. 

Use of the Queen V Essentials Kit can make you feel better about yourself, it cleanses, balances and refreshes the vaginal region.. There are three products in the kit for use in the vaginal area and one product to take orally. Let's look at each product separately and discuss it. 

Queen V DD Probiotic 

Queen V Daily Dose Probiotic may promote a healthy Queen V by balancing out yeast and bacteria while also supporting your digestive track, immune system and antioxidant health. It contains Turmeric, Grapefruit Seed, Bifidobacterium Bifidum, Lactobacillus Acidophilus, Lactobacillus Rhamnosus, Folic Acid, Allium Sativum (Garlic) Bulb Extract and Black Pepper Extract, to name a few of the important ingredients. This probiotic supplement helps to bring good bacteria into the body, allowing it to get into the vaginal canal, digestive track, the skin's microbiome and into the immune system. This way the bad bacteria do not take over and cause things like yeast infections or bacteria vaginosis. This box comes with 30 capsules, enough for a month's supply. 

I am a HUGE fan of probiotics. I firmly believe that everyone should take probiotics and prebiotics daily. Probiotics can be found in yogurt, kefir and some kinds of sour cream. Probiotics contain the good bacteria our bodies need to stay in harmony. When we take antibiotics, these good bacteria get killed off and that is why we get yeast infections. The candida bacteria that are in our vaginas are allowed to grow nonstop without any bacteria to stop them from growing, thus we end up with either a yeast infection and/or thrush. Probiotics are good for the skin's own microbiome, which is microscopic and needs them to survive. They are good for our intestines, to help keep our intestines flowing nicely. It helps the immune system by putting good bacteria in the small intestines to help digest food. Bacteria and acids are what digest food in our digestive track. Good bacteria are essential for the digestion of food and without those good bacteria, chaos ensues. And finally, they are good for our vaginal area to help keep our vaginal canals from getting yeast infections and/or bacterial vaginosis. 


These 'flushable wipes' are infused with Queen V friendly Vitamin E and Coconut Oil for anytime you need to freshen up the vaginal area or anywhere you need to freshen up. Always wipe front to back for a soothing and refreshing cleanse anytime and anywhere. Pull out one wipe and firmly reseal lid. Unfold wipe and gently cleanse. For best flushability, use only one wipe per flush. These wipes also contain Aloe Leaf Extract to soothe the vaginal area. There are 25 wipes per packet and it stays dry with the lid on top. The best thing about these wipes is that the pH level of them are in line with the pH level of the vagina, which is much better than the other wipes available. 

First, I would not flush these wipes. It has been shown that flushable wipes are not flushable at all. They end up clogging pipes. Second, I like that these wipes are very gentle yet cleanse better than other wipes I have used. I think it is the natural essential oils and natural ingredients used in the wipes. They don't cause any irritation to me, but some might find them irritating because of all of the natural ingredients. If that happens, stop using, contact Queen V right away and contact your physician. That is for any of these products. 

Queen V The Spritzer Deodorizing Spray

A lot of women prefer to use refreshing sprays in the vaginal region. That can be all well and good, but often those sprays have a high pH level, knocking out the good bacteria and starting out the likelihood of a yeast infection. This refreshing spray is hydration and refreshing with rosewater and has been designed to control odor as well as rejuvenate your Queen V. Spritz externally on your Queen V throughout the day as needed. Remove cap. Hold bottle 8-12 inches away and press down on the top for a quick spray. For external use only, not for use inside the vagina. If product gets into eyes, rinse well with water. Store in a cool, dry place. This product contains rosewater, hydrogen peroxide and phosphoric acid in case you are allergic to any of these ingredients. 

I love this spray and how fresh I feel after using it. Definitely better than other vaginal refreshing sprays and how they make you feel. I like this one because it leaves a light rose scent without it being artificial and it doesn't mask odor. It actually kills odor. 

Queen V: V Bar, pH Balanced Cleansing Bar

Finally, we have the cleansing bar, which is similar to those cleansing washes put out by other companies. It is infused with Rosewater, Aloe and Cucumber Juice extract. The bar is pH-balanced and is specially formulated without harsh ingredients for the Queen V. The cleansing bar comes in a Wild Berry scent. For external use only. Apply the V Bar onto wet skin. Gently lather and massage into skin and then rinse clean. Can be used every time you bathe. 

You will love how this smells and how nicely this cleanses the vagina without leaving it feeling squeaky clean and harshly deodorized. This product feels more natural in the vaginal region than other vaginal cleansing products because of its pH balance and its ability to cleanse the area so gently. 

All in all, I am VERY happy with the Queen V products. I like how gentle they are on my intimate areas and how well they perform. I would definitely purchase these again. They have other products that they make but I just wanted to review what I purchased. I might purchase some of the other products, I am so happy with these. The best deal by far though is their Queen V Essentials Kit, which contains all of these products, which are the superstars by far.  

Until Next Time~
