Pond’s Age Miracle Intensive Cell ReGEN Super Serum Review

I am never falling for advertisements of beauty products ever again! Honestly, I got this product for its packaging ( sleek & classy ) and advertisement and of-course reading a few good reviews. This product has been a part of life for at least 7 months, and I have pumped out the product only 15 times you want to know why, then keep reading…

Must say they have done a good job in packaging, but what can package do to skin, Nothing! The pump system is very convenient to use as it allows in getting just the right amount you need. I want to keep this short and sweet as possible. So here it goes!

What the Product says:

For Wrinkle-Free, Spotless Skin with a Youthful Glow, Wrinkles and age spots, begone! This water-based serum, enriched with Intelligent Pro-Cell Complex™ and 20X concentrated CLA*, boosts your skin’s capacity for young cell regeneration. The result? Visibly reduced wrinkles and age spots in 7 days!

Ingredients:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Dimethicone crosspolymer, Cyclomethicone, Cyclotetrasiloxane, Cyclohexasiloxane, Water/Aqua, Glycolic acid, Potassium hydroxide, Caprylic/Capric triglyceride, Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, Isomerized linoleic acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic acid, Palmitic acid, Myristic acid, Acetamide MEA, BHT, Cholesterol, PEG-10 Dimethicone, Pentaerithrityl tetra-di-butyl hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Retinol, Sucrose distearate, Pentasodium aminotrimetylene phosphonate, Perfume/Parfum, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Butylene glycol, Propylene glycol, Iron oxides, Triethoxycaprylylsilane, DMDM Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl butylcarbamate, Alpha-Isomethyl ionone, Benzyl salicylate, Butylphenyl methylpropional, Hexyl cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexane carboxaldehyde, Linalool, CI 77491, CI 17200.

My Say

1. The produce is very light and glides on like a premier making my skin very fake like layer.
2. My skin feels very funny dull after application in other words matte.
3. Not hydrating at all and feels very plasticity
4. My skin was the same before and after application I did not see results :(

Again it did not work for my skin and I have oily/dry combination skin around T-Zone and I am medium to dark skin.

I wouldn't recommend this product if you have limited budget and are looking for the perfect anti-aging serum and creams. I picked this up for around 3.750 KWD ($13) not very sure as its been really long.

I believe this has worked for few other bloggers and honestly I wished it worked for me as well. That's all for now loves!

Take Care

The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation Review & Swatches.

The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation Review & Swatches.

If you who know me, you know me well enough, that I love Body Shop products at least most of them :D. I was searching for a lighter foundation that can help me get the coverage that I need and stay light on my skin which I can use everyday. If you are looking for one of those then you’re reading the right blog post. This is my first blog post and I am glad I am writing this for you ♥

Lets get to the details shall we:

Product - The Body Shop Extra Virgin Minerals Cream Compact Foundation.
My skin type: Dry to Oily combination. Depending on weather and crazy T- Zone area where oiliness and dryness are subject to change.
Price: 3 Kuwaiti Dinar ($ 10)
Availability: All Body Shop stores.

FULL INGREDIENTS:
Propylene Glycol Dicaprylate/Dicaprate (Emollient), Titanium Dioxide (Color), Dimethicone (Skin Conditioning Agent), Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate (Light stabilizer), Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil (Emollient), Polyethylene (Opacifier), Isononyl Isononanoate (Emollient/Skin Conditioner), Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides (Emollient), Polymethylsilsesquioxane (Opacifying Agent), Polysilicone-11 (Film Former), Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax (Stabiliser/Viscosity Modifier), Boron Nitride (Bulking Agent), HDI/Trimethylol Hexyllactone Crosspolymer (Anticaking Agent), Beeswax (Emulsifier/Emollient), Aluminum Hydroxide (Opacifier), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax (Stabiliser), Sclerocarya Birrea Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Isostearic Acid (Emulsifier), Triethoxycaprylylsilane (Binder), Lauroyl Lysine (Skin Conditioning Agent), Tocopherol (Antioxidant), Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil (Emollient/Skin Conditioner). [May Contain: Iron Oxides (Color), Mica (Color)].

Now lets see what the Product Promises

The cream-to-powder mineral foundation contains pure minerals and cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil for an immaculate, matte finish. It has an ultra-bendable formula and contains a custom brush for flawless application.

o Medium to full coverage
o Smooth, matte finish
o Integrated cruelty-free brush
o Contains SPF 15
o Fragrance & Paraben-free

My Say:

I Love this product because I can apply this on a daily basis and not use foundation every day if you know what I mean it’s light texture and curtly free brush “I love this part” makes it easy for application and blends well on skin. I don’t have breakouts neither it sinks into pores. It feels super light on the skin, if you know what I mean.

The coverage is not that great to be honest. It’s between good to medium coverage foundation depending on applying one coat or two with two you sure will get enough coverage but you may have to use a concealer to cover any spots. Brush is fairly OK not all great, but I like it!

You need to touch up every 3 hours and I have no problem with it because the packing is perfect to carry it around. I’d rather touch up on a daily basis instead of using foundation everyday all day. It’s not resistant, it comes off easy but I notices that when used with a compact powder its stays for longer hours. And its not water proof so it’s easily washable.

Coverage: Good to medium coverage.

Smell: Earthy clay kind a smell to it. Me Love!

Pros:

o Paraben free
o Doesn’t break me out
o Comes with cruelty free brush
o SPF 15
o Light Creamy foundation which blends well and it matte on skin
o Love clay-ish smell
o Available in 7 shades which includes shades matching Indian skin tones. Horayyy!

Cons:

o Light-medium coverage – can be fixed with double application and using powder on top
o Not long lasting – vanishes after 2-3 hours – Can make it last longer by using compact powder
o Not resistant – comes off easy.

Verdict Time:

If you are looking for a daily use, sheer foundation which doesn't break you out, then its best buy

Will I buy this again - Absolutely Yes! Not a huge fan of using foundation every day.

My Rating: 7 out of 10

Hope this was helpful!

“Why I Love Jesus”

Joanna Grant Thank you for nominating me for “Why I Love Jesus”, while the Ice bucket nomination was going viral. I am very glad we can take this time in pinning down on Why “We Love Jesus”.

Many know me well enough to know I went crazy on Jesus just over 4 years ago and all they saw on my Facebook wall is Jesus and Love and my crazy loving thoughts on Him. Well life has brought me safe to this point to openly declare and share my love for Him! My love for him has always been there over ages, I believe when he created me.

On that day when I came to fathom that my earthly father walked out on us and I pondered and assumed it was all my fault. Well at least every child in that state and situation thinks it’s always their fault that “Daddy left because of Me”. Well everything seemed better when reality came out in other words, I grew up and figured out all by myself, he left and found myself another Mommy. The hated the word “Father” and anything to do with “Dad” or Men! pretty unfair don’t you think?

Little did I know the father who created me in heaven loved me enough to have Him all for Himself ! Over 4 years ago I encountered Him “I heard Him when I opened the bible with willing heart to know about this “Jesus” who I merely knew was a man who died on tree/cross for his people and I thought he must be a great Man to do that for Humanity. Just when I opened the bible, I saw the white pleasant light which blinded my eyes to this world came upon me that night and through it came a voice saying “It is Done” I have waited all your life for this moment”. “It is Time Come to Me” “I am Here” “I am Waiting” “It is Done” “My Daughter”…. I knew this Beautiful Voice instantly it was “Jesus”. Seated on the couch, I fell on my face down on the Holy Bible covering my face with my palms and wept and wept until I could not weep anymore. Immense, Love, Joy, Peace overwhelmed, surround and clothed me with the pleasant white light, and I was baptized with the Holy Sprite. From that very moment I walked from Day to Day, loving Him with all my heart.

Jesus you are my everything in every way possible. I love you because you loved me first! You know me from inside out and I have nothing to hide.

You died for me and I have accepted your love and I love you with every breath of mine. I will have no other “Father” no other “God” no other “Anyone” or “Anything” before you because I LOVE YOU!

I wait to see you Face to Face. I wait to cling to you like a little child would and go where ever you go, because I didn’t have a chance to incomprehensibly follow my earthly father. I will call you Daddy a Gazillion times and annoy you with a Bazillion stupid questions, just so I can hear your voice over and over again. And walk with you firmly holding your hand and refusing to let go at any cost, smiling with confidence at every step we take that you will not leave or forsake.

“I Adore You Jesus”

I Nominate everyone who wants to share their Story….

Much Love

Vinegar removes scaly/clumpy build-up or residue from hair shafts and closes the cuticles. Since residue coats the hair causing it to look dull, removing residue gives your hair more shine. By closing the cuticles, the hair slides more easily and there will be fewer tangles. Vinegar has a tonic action that promotes blood circulation in the small capillaries that irrigate the skin. When used regularly in your natural hair care routine, apple cider vinegar can revitalize your hair, leaving it soft and smooth.

That way you can spritz your hair with the mixture and massage it into your scalp. Let the apple cider vinegar concoction sit for a few minutes before rinsing fully with water. No need to use conditioner! The apple cider vinegar will leave hair feeling smooth and soft.

Saffron

Saffron for Skin, Hair & Health

What is Saffron?

“An orange-yellow flavoring, food coloring, and dye made from the dried stigmas of a crocus” - (Dictionary)

The word saffron derives from the Arab word zafaran, meaning yellow, and it was mentioned as far back as 1500 b.c. in many classical writings, as well as in the Bible.

Saffron is a plant, dried stigmas (thread-like parts of the flower) are used to make saffron spice. It can take 75,000 saffron blossoms to yield a single pound of saffron spice. Saffron is largely cultivated and harvested by hand. The amount of labor involved in harvesting, thus making saffron the world's most expensive spice.

Well! that is a good start to write this post, I thought… But you should continue reading this for several reasons. I promise it will blow your mind...

So what really makes saffron the world's most expensive spice? It's not necessarily its flavor or any health benefits associated with the reddish-yellow spice, although it does lend a distinct, wonderful flavor to all manner of dishes. Rather, it’s the cultivation process.

Saffron is harvested in Spain, Greece, India, Turkey, and a few other countries. It can be sold as saffron threads, or as a ground saffron powder.

Although the majority of the world's saffron is produced in Iran, Spain is the world's largest exporter of saffron.

Expectant mothers are often given milk and saffron so that the fetus in the womb gets a fair and glowing complexion. There is no medical theory behind this though!

Saffron: Hair Benefits

Saffron is beneficial for your hair and helps in stimulating hair growth.

Combats Hair Loss: Saffron can be mixed with and milk & honey and applied to bald spots. This will combat hair loss and promote hair growth.

Health Benefits of Saffron:

It’s significant nutrients and chemical compounds which are beneficial in providing medicinal benefits. Let us look at a few of the saffron uses below:

Anti-depressant: The active components in the saffron make our body lose its depressing characteristics making it a dietary necessity sometimes.

Cell formation and repair: Potassium, found in saffron, is a necessary source that favors cell formation and repair.

Heart diseases, blood pressure: Potassium also helps maintains the blood pressure and keeps heart diseases at bay.

Disease prevention: One of the main saffron benefits when used in cooking food is that it contains many plant derived chemical components which are known to prevent diseases. They are also known to promote overall well-being of the body.

Active components: Apart from the volatile oils, there are also non-volatile active components like carotenoid compound that are anti-oxidants beneficial to the body. These prevent free radical reactions which produce harmful by-compounds and diseases. Some of the carotenoids like zea-xanthin, lycopene, alpha and beta carotene are widely appreciated. This is also one of the main uses of saffron.

*How does Saffron Extract aid with weight loss?

Saffron consist "Serotonin" - What is Serotonin if you may ask?

Serotonin is a hormone found in the digestive tract, the central nervous system, blood platelets and the pineal gland (deep at the center of the brain). It is also known as 5-hydroxytryptamine, which is often abbreviated to 5-HT. (Serotonin's chemical formula is C10H12N2O.)

A hormone is a chemical the body produces that controls and regulates certain activities in cells or organs. Hormones are vital for every activity of life, including reproduction, growth, metabolism, digestion and mood control.

About 80% of our body's total serotonin is in the gut, in the enterochromaffin cells - where it regulates intestinal movements. The rest is synthesized in the serotonergic neurons in the central nervous system.

Serotonin cannot cross the blood-brain barrier. Therefore serotonin that is used inside the brain must be produced within it.

Now how it can help one reduce weight

This is one of the most important hormones in the body when it comes to weight loss, as this has a direct influence on how full you feel. Therefore, if controlled correctly, you can be made to feel much fuller than you really are. This is the main secret through saffron extract, with the supplement renowned as being able to cut down your calorie intake. It will decrease all of your cravings, thus reducing the amount of time you snack during the day, and this will all help you lose weight at a gradual, and not dangerous, pace.

According to Bristol University in England, serotonin is involved in:

appetite.
sleep.
memory.
Serotonin also plays a key role in the regulating sleep, learning, increasing body temperature.
mood - Princeton University says serotonin is also known as a happiness hormone because it contributes to feelings of well-being.
behavior.
muscle contraction.
depression.
cardiovascular function.
endocrine regulation.
regulating aging.
bone metabolism.
wound healing - serotonin is a growth factor for some types of cells

Saffron Side Effects

Some possible side effects include dry mouth, anxiety, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, change in appetite, and headache. Allergic reactions can occur in some people.

Taking large amounts of saffron is UNSAFE. High doses can cause poisoning, including yellow appearance of the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes, vomiting, dizziness, bloody diarrhea, bleeding from the nose, lips, and eyelids, numbness, and other serious side effects. Doses of 12-20 grams can be fatal.

-----Special Precautions & Warnings------

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Don’t take saffron in amounts larger than those normally found in food. Larger amounts of saffron can make the uterus contract and might cause a miscarriage.

Not enough is known about the safety of using saffron during breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

***Migraines - researchers at the Maryland University Medical Center say that serotonin, among other substances appears to play a role in causing migraines.
