Radha Beauty Professional Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum Review

I am very happy that I got the opportunity to try Professional Age-Defying Skin Clearing serum from new skin care brand Radha Beauty. I must say it is one product packed with a lot of powerful ingredients (Vitamin C Serum 20%, Retinol 2.5%, Salicylic Acid 2%, Hyaluronic Acid, Rosehip and Lavender Oil) that help reverse the signs of aging while improving blemished skin and hyper pigmentation.

I tend to get a lot of breakouts on my face during summer and with sensitive skin I have to be very careful with the product I use as they can cause irritation or redness. After using this product for week I am extremely satisfied with the results. My breakouts have cleared up and blemishes and red spots have reduced drastically. A skin clearing and anti-aging benefits in single bottle, now that's a product to have in my daily skin care routine. 

The serum is packaged in stylish silver bottle with easy to dispense system on top.

Initially I had issues with the consistency of serum, it is not very thick so one has to be careful while taking on finger tip as it might spill. It has light scent to it and gets absorbed easily on skin within a minute. The scent does not stay on long so for someone who does not like scents this will still work. I have sensitive skin so I am very glad that this product did not cause burning sensation or irritation which I usually get with products containing salicylic acid. I have been using this daily for over a week and my skin is getting clearer and radiant with regular use.

Directions - Apply after cleansing and toning and before moisturizer is applied to face

Below are the reasons which make the Age Defying Skin Clearing serum such a great product:

POWERFUL FORMULA - Serum contains a powerful combination of active ingredients such as Vitamin C, Retinol, botanical Hyaluronic Acid, salicylic acid and Niacinamide

GENTLE ON THE SKIN - It is full of natural and organic ingredients that make it safe for all skin types - even oily skin. Glides on smoothly and absorbs fast and won't irritate or burn your skin!

NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS - This serum is cruelty free and manufactured in brand's State of the Art FDA Approved facility in the US

ALL NATURAL - Serum does not contain fillers or harmful fragrances, dyes or parabens

Radha Beauty website claims that this Serum will help reverse the signs of aging while improving blemished skin and hyper pigmentation. In this powerful serum sulfur penetrates and creates elasticity while Niacinamide takes the red out and prevents inflammation that underlies all troubled skin issues. 20% Vitamin C repairs micro scarring, reverses sun damage, provides significant natural sun protection and rapidly creates smooth supple glowing skin. Stealthy superior retinol and salicylic acid unclog pores, speed cellular turn over, and undo the signs of aging skin.

Adeline Organic Eye Serum Review

If you are suffering from crow's feet, fine lines, discoloration, brown spots, dark circles, or puffiness around your eyes then Adeline Organic Eye Serum is the solution for all your eye problems. What makes this serum unique and effective are the natural ingredients in it:

  • Cucumber extract, like other extracts in the aloe family, moisturizes your skin to diminish lines and wrinkles.
  • Chamomile extract soothes the skin around your eyes and reduces puffiness.
  • Aloe Barbadensis leaf juice improves collagen production to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and crow's feet.
  • Sunflower seed oil contains antioxidant vitamins A, C, and E to prevent free radical damage, and fatty acids to prevent premature aging and promote new cell growth.
  • Usa Urvi leaf extract is a natural source of hydroquinone - reduces inflammation and the appearance of brown spots.

I love the packaging of the product and full marks to Adeline for Pump design which makes it very easy to dispense the serum. Single bottle contains 0.5 oz of serum

The serum is transparent and decent consistency to apply around eye area. When I applied it around my eye area at night it got absorbed smoothly. You can feel slight scent of aloe or cucumber but it is not very strong, light scent. It had nice cooling sensation but nor itching or burning. After 2 weeks of using this product daily at night I find my eyes look rested and not puffy anymore. The dark circles have reduced (not vanished I would say completely). I love the fact that it is gentle enough for sensitive skin and alcohol-free and paraben-free. This product comes with a 100% "Bottom of the Bottle" Guarantee - if you're not happy, return the product for a full refund - even if the bottle is empty!

Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Review!

I was super excited to receive the most iconic Voxbox from Influenster containing Yves Saint Laurent Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in High Density Black color. The mascara retails for $32.00 and comes in 6 colors (High Density Black, Extreme Blue, Burgundy, Rich Brown, Fascinating Violet, Deep Night).

The first thing I absolutely loved as soon as I opened the box was the amazing Gold tint packaging. When I opened mascara I was surrounded by fresh scent which was nice (not too weird or strong).

YSL has launched this mascara with remastered Triple-Intensity Formula, which provides intense volume, intense color and now intense care.

What is unique is nylon fiber brush which coats each lash in deep color and provides maximum volume and it has B5 Pro-Vitamin to strengthen and protect lashes. This new formula creates "False Lash Effect" for your lashes giving great volume.

This new formulated mascara is amazing. I only applied single coat and I could see that my lashes looked fuller and longer. I did not curl them but effect would have been even more dramatic. The best part was that it did not clump and did great job at separating lashes, effect stayed on whole day. When time came to remove them at night I was bit skeptical but am really amazed at how easy it was to completely removed them, no mess.

I am totally loving this mascara YSL has done a fabulous job with their new formula. Have you tried it?Let me know your thoughts in comments.

Influenster Frosty VoxBox

I received the Frosty Voxbox from Influenster to test the products and review. Influenster is great way to try new products and share your personal opinions on what you receive. I am so excited to get this, it is my first voxbox from influenster and it had so many products or me to try. This box contained 7 items:
EcoTools Hair Brush - Very light weight, anti tangle design, frizz/static fighting design with Eco vent design to dry hair 20% faster. I am loving this product as it is very easy to use and helps me style my hair to give bounce and volume to limp hair.

NYC Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum - This is THE BEST product in the box. I totally love this shade, looks great.

Rimmel Scandaleyes waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner - I am more of liquid eyeliner gal but this one has me thinking of trying out pencil ones more often. It has intense black color and is very smooth to apply. Will definitely be using in future.

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover - I have used this in past and it is great to remove eye makeup. Very gentle and removes even waterproof long lasting ones easily.

No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Serum - The sample is not enough to try it out for 4 weeks so cannot honestly say if it helps reduce wrinkles and fine lines. However after applying it my skin felt smooth and silky and slightly radiant. I like the fact that it is not greasy and no strong odor.

McCormick Gourmet Thyme - I am big McCormick brand fan have been trying their various seasonings lately. I was excited to try Thyme seasoning from my voxbox. It has minty flavor and using this on oven roasted chicken, great aroma. I am feeling adventurous so may try out more recipes with thyme. Love this!

Fruit Vines Bites - I was little disappointed with this one. It tastes like cherry fruit candy but less sweet. I guess was expecting it to be sweeter.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea - I love green tea, it is my most recent obsession with staying healthy. Loved it will be trying out more flavors soon.

Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Serum

I received Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Serum sample in my Frosty Voxbox from Influenster to test and review. The box was really great with some awesome products. Unfortunately I only received small sample for Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Serum not a full sized product to form an honest opinion of the product. I cannot say if it reduces fine lines and wrinkles as I the sample quantity was not enough for 4 weeks application. However I did find that my skin was super smooth and slightly radiant with use of this serum. I liked the fact that it was non greasy and no odor which suits me.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea Taste Test

I received sample of Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea from Influenster complimentary in my Frosty Voxbox. I was very excited to get this as I am getting into Green teas lately as my new healthy obsession in 2015 and never tried a flavor variety of green tea. I was not disappointed at all plus this one is decaf. The sample came with 2 tea bags. When I opened bag I was greeted with fresh aroma of peppermint which just went so well with name “Holiday Tea” on tea bag. After making a hot cup below are my thoughts on smell, taste and look of it.

Smell – Aroma of peppermint is quite strong which works well for me as I like pumpkin, peppermint all kinds of holiday flavors.

Taste – It was very delicious even without sweetener. The mix of peppermint with cinnamon and vanilla made for perfect flavor to drink this holiday. If you like you can add sweetener too. Refreshing and very minty!

Look – The color of green tea came out stronger than other I have used so far. I thought it would make it bitter but minty flavor was blended perfectly with other spices.

I am in love with this green tea. Perfect for me to spice up my drinks and add variety in life. Plain green tea can get boring to drink after a while. I will definitely be checking out more flavors in stores.

If you have tried this green tea or any other flavor from Celestial please comment below and share your thoughts.

Then I make my voice heard by sharing my honest opinions about the great stuff I try with others, including some of the largest companies in the world. This review of my recipe I created with my Bzzkit and ingredients from my kitchen!
1 box Barilla Collezione Casarecce Pasta
1 jar of Barilla’s Spicy Marinara Sauce
1/2 lbs. chicken breast
Sliced Mushroom (8-10 large) or broccoli (5-6 small)
Parmesan Cheese- toppings
Pink Peppercorn- optional
Salt and Pepper- to taste
1.) Marinate chicken with olive oil, thyme, pepper, red chilli and any seasoning you like. Keep aside for 30 minutes. Grill Chicken in oven with broil option or pre heat oven to 370 F and bake till cooked.
2.)  Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. 9-10 minutes is perfect  where the pasta is cooked through but not mushy. Add salt to water and keep stirring continuously to avoid pieces clump together. Drain the cooked pasta and set aside once cooked.
3.) In separate pan, brown the mushrooms until it cooked through. Drain excess oil and put it back on the pan. Add the barilla sauce about 3/4 of the jar depend on how much sauce you want for your pasta. Add more if you need to:)
3.) Simmer the sauce. Add pasta, mushroom, broccoli and chicken and mix it all well together. Cook for few minutes and then switch off flame.
4.) Add the Parmesan cheese on top! Crushed pepper (Pink peppercorn if you want to try somtehing different tastes good) Enjoy!!
