SiO Beauty Face Lift and Brow Lift | Review

As someone who’s had horrible acne growing up, skincare easily became an obsession of mine. I began doing a ton of my own research and trying out different products and went full force in my early twenties. I wanted to take care of my skin and do anything and everything possible to make it not only clear of blemishes but also prevent any wrinkles and fine lines. This review will be about an incredible product from SiO Beauty that has immediate results to fade the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

SiO Beauty FaceLift and Brow Lift Review

Something I’ve heard repeatedly from family and friends older than me is how they wish they began to take better care of their skin earlier on, specifically in their early to mid twenties. Needless to say with that message drilled in my head at a young age, I began incorporating anti-aging and smoothing products into my regimen by the time I turned 22. I turn 26 in just a few days and I feel skincare is more important than ever so when I heard of SiO Beauty’s FaceLift Patch Pack and what it’s designed to do, I was immediately intrigued.

A few days ago, I published my first ever Anti-Haul where I listed a few products/brands I won’t be spending my money on.

Colleen Rothschild Beauty Radiant Cleansing Balm and Clarifying Detox Mask Review + Coupon Code

Discovering new skincare products is one of my favorite things since I’m always looking to refine my day and night skincare routine. Therefore, I was super excited to be contacted by Colleen Rothschild Beauty to try out a couple of their products. I was sent their Radiant Cleansing Balm along with their Clarifying Detox Mask. Colleen Rothschild Beauty was also kind enough to provide a 20% off coupon code for my readers which I will post at the end of this 
review!

Just FYI, I have combo skin that is super sensitive. Also, the information provided about the products are from Colleen Rothschild Beauty’s website but all opinions on each product are completely my own.
Price
The Radiant Cleansing Balm costs $65 and you get 3.3 fl oz of product plus a muslin cloth.
What It Does
Comprehensive Radiant Cleansing Balm dissolves eye and face makeup, clears congested pores, and removes impurities, leaving skin balanced, soft, and radiant. The Loofah Seed and Moringa Oil renew the out layer skin cells and restore the skin’ flexibility and equilibrium.
Key Ingredients
Moringa Oil – restores luminosity
Lipexel – combats dehydration
Black Seed oil – antioxidant protection
Aromatic Complex – calms and decongests
This product is meant for all skin types – yay!
I use this balm daily when I’m ready to take of my makeup. I take about a quarter size amount and massage it onto my face. Next, I wet the cloth provided with warm water and place it on my face. I relax for about 10 minutes and then use cool water to wash off the balm. The Radiant Cleansing Balm leaves my skin super soft and glowing! I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and have noticed that my skin has increased luminosity! I love the way it melts onto my skin while I massage it in, the scent isn’t overpowering and it definitely relaxes me as I keep the cloth on my face after application.
Price
The Clarifying Detox Mask costs $48 and comes with 1.7 fl oz of product.
What It Does
Skin breathes a sigh of relief as the Clarifying Detox mask removes trapped dirt and debris. Charcoal acts like a magnet, drawing out pore clogging impurities and leaving a more balanced complexion.
Activated charcoal and French Kaolin Clay go straight to work, detoxing pores and leaving behind a more balanced complexion, while pure Micronized Silver helps keep bacteria at bay.
The addition of the exclusive delivery system LevelE3 enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of the Glycolic Acid. Meanwhile, a blend of vitamin C and Willowherb Extract brightens and soothes inflamed skin.
Key Ingredients
Charcoal – detoxifies
Glycolic Acid – increases cellular turnover
MicroSilver – promotes clear skin
Vitamin C – antioxidant protection
Like the Radiant Cleansing Balm, this product also works for all skin types – yay!
I’ve been using this product twice a week and it’s one of the most luxurious masks I’ve used. I let the mask dry for about 10-15 minutes and rinse it with lukewarm water. I really like how it feels when I apply it to my face and it leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh!
My skin tends to act up a ton during the summer so utilizing both of these products has been helpful in decreasing breakouts and increases clear, luminous skin. I love that both products are formulated without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, formaldehyde, PABA, and other harsh ingredients.
Although the prices may seem a bit steep for some, the products are definitely worth it in my opinion. Both the Radiant Cleansing Balm and Clarifying Detox Mask feel luxurious and also look the part as well! I love the packaging of both products.
You can check out Colleen Rothschild Beauty’s products here! They were also kind enough to provide a 20% off coupon for my readers! The coupon code is GIGGLES20 and will be valid on all regular priced items from today, 7/2/2016 to 7/9/2016!

Derma E Purifying Daily Detox Scrub Review

There are very few skincare products I feel strongly about and Derma E definitely has a few that I would never stop using. The product I’ll be reviewing today is their Purifying Daily Detox Scrub. I received this product a few weeks ago from Derma E themselves and I am so so thankful because I found a new line of products I absolutely love!

Here is a little information about the scrub I pulled from Derma E’s website:
Gentle enough for daily use, this detox scrub lifts away micropollutants and impurities while promoting oxygenation for a fresh, healthy radiance. Doctor developed and clinically tested, this revitalizing formula contains some of the most powerful minerals and natural toxin fighters from the earth and from the sea. Kimarine® Wakame is a potassium-rich, magnesium-rich seaweed that is clinically proven to protect skin against environmental pollutants (exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, heavy metals). Bladderwrack is an antioxidant-rich, mineral-rich seaweed known for its water-binding properties, supporting healthy skin hydration and nourishment. Activated Charcoal, known for absorbing 100 to 200 times its weight in impurities, helps remove toxins from the skin’s surface. Apricot Seed Powder gently exfoliates away micropollutants, and Green Tea delivers potent antioxidant defense. Ideal for oily, active or urban skin types, even safe for reactive skin (minimal ingredients and allergy-tested), this formula boosts skin purity for a refreshed, glowing complexion. 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, sulfate-free, mineral oil-free, lanolin-free, gluten free, GMO-free.

Ingredients:

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Cetyl Alcohol, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Seed Powder, Glycerin, Coco-Caprylate, Charcoal Powder, Fucus Vesiculosus (Bladderwrack) Extract, Undaria Pinnatifida (Wakame, Kimarine®) Extract, Organic Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract* (.1%), Menthol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Xanthan Gum, Diheptyl Succinate, Capryloyl Glycerin/Sebacic Acid Copolymer, Menthyl Lactate, Potassium Cetyl Phosphate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Coco-Glucoside, Glyceryl Oleate, Iron Oxide, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
The cost of this scrub is $15.50 for a full size – 4 ounces. 
Here is what the scrub looks like:
I had no idea what to expect the first time I tried this but I didn’t expect a metallic silver color! I think it’s super neat and a nice change from standard colors of scrubs I’m used to. 
This particular scrub is meant for normal to oily skin. My skin is a combination + sensitive and I tend to use this anywhere from 5-7 times a week, typically in the mornings because it provides my skin feeling completely fresh with a cool, minty sensation. The scrub is very gentle yet powerful enough to remove impurities and leaves my skin feeling smooth. I am a fan of the apricot seed scrubs for this very reason because I feel that it really takes off all the oil, dirt, and dead skin cells on my skin without irritating it. Moreover, this scrub doesn’t dry out  my skin at all even though I use it so frequently! 
I’m crazy obsessed with this scrub and have already purchased another tube from Ulta since I’m just about done with this one. I really adore Derma E because they provide great ingredients at a lower price range than what I usually shop for. 
If you’re interested in checking out or purchasing Derma E’s Purifying Daily Detox Scrub, you can do so on their website here or from Ulta here!
