REVIEW | Magnetic False Lashes

IMG_6347.JPG

Magnetic False Lashes seem to be pretty inventive. At best, it can solve the issue for folks who have trouble gluing them on. Here's my honest review about the product via YouTube. 

Have you tried these? I would love to hear your thoughts! 

Announcing a new paranormal fiction series

It's been one hell of a ride. Dealing with two eclipses back in August made me think things in perspective. Since I became a contributor for SheOwnsIt.com, I've been writing more. One day, I wanted to channel out my stress and find a way to relax.  

 

So, I picked up the pen again and drafted my first post for my online fiction series.  

Introducing...The Bruja From Customer Support

Based on my experience as a customer support agent, the character is a single witch who creates diary entries ("Diario de Chismes") where she blogs about her job, witchcraft and figuring out the meaning of love.

At the moment, I don't have any intention on selling the book. However if you happen to like the series, feel free to donate at http://ko-fi.com/dianarchin

UNBOXING Instantpeel Skincare Masks

Hi folks! The good folks at Earthen was kind enough to send me this box for free. I rarely use exfoliating masks, but I was intrigued on how their item works. 

From their website:

Created as a natural alternative to glycolic acid peels and dermabrasion, InstantPeel’s combination of proteins and enzymes naturally and gently peels away dead skin cells impurities. But unlike most chemical skin peels and facial scrubs, InstantPeelTM is sensitization-tested and proven safe for even the most delicate skin.
The proof is right at your fingertips: InstantPeel is so easy to use. The skin peel action starts within seconds of application.

I did a full unboxing on how the package looks and the application. You can check out my YouTube video below:

UNBOXING Magiforet Blackhead Peel Off Mask

I've seen a couple of videos (whether purchased or DIY), there's been an ongoing trend in using blackhead charcoal peel off masks. Some claimed that it helps remove the blackheads a lot better compared to regular ol' Biore strips. Believe it or not, my nose has the largest amount of blackheads. Though I strive to clean it on a weekly basis, sometimes it can be a hassle. 

When the company decided to send me the product, I figured it'll be a good chance on trying out this beauty trend. I really didn't want to resort using Elmers Glue and charcoal powder. The directions were pretty straightforward. I've noticed that there's a heavy emphasis on putting a light layer and I can see why. There were some areas that couldn't dry completly within the 10-15 minute time frame. The good news is, majority of the areas were peelable and I managed to rinse off the residue with warm water. I definitely did enjoy the Rose Hydrosol as an additional measure to help tighten the pores.

Bonus points - my husband also tried it and did noticed that his skin was glowing. It's definitely a win for the both of us! Be sure to check out my video below on the full spectrum on my unboxing.

Hemp Seed Oil Face Cream by Cannara REVIEW

Cannabis cream is a real thing, y'all. I had my skepticism at first. But the company that provided the cream to me at a discounted price was nice enough to let me do a review on their product. I'm at an age where I take my skincare very seriously. So when I discovered that their cream was derived from hemp oil, I was pretty intrigued. 

Along with my face cupping routine, I decided to use their cream right after my massage. I started to notice the results within 2 days. My skin feels more firmer and tighter. In terms of my breakouts, it help minimised the scarring that I had on some acne spots below the chin.  I definitely love the grassy and clean smell from the cream! The consistency of the cream is just right - not too heavy, not too light. Even though the price $99 sounds steep, it's actually worth getting it for those who are serious about their skincare and anti-aging routine.

UNBOXING HSS Handmade Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp

I've always heard a lot of great benefits with salt lamps. When the company reached out to me in trying our their product, I was estatic.  A bit of a side story - I had to wrestle with my local post office since one of the carriers were either lazy or totally forgot about my package. After rescheduling the delivery twice in a row, it decided to arrive this past Saturday. I was concerned that the salt lamp would be damaged. Thankfully, it was pretty intact.

Upon opening, the first thing I noticed were the amount of salt crystals that spilled across my table. Not to say that it was a lot. Inspecting further, I noticed that the manual was slightly damaged. Though I can see that the box was decent in size to hold the salt lamp, I do wish that they had a good padding structure on separating the plug and manual from the salt lamp.

Setting up the salt lamp was pretty straight forward. After removing the wrapper, I went ahead and inserted the bulb into the salt lamp. What I found nifty was the dial that you can control the intensity of the light.  Since it was the first day, I can't say anything about any positive effects. However, I'm anticipating within the next couple of days, I'll be able to notice something.

Overall, it's a nice chunk for the value that is being sold on their Amazon page.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS - Realism Artistry Watercolor Marker Set

Coloring books are awesome. Having a decent set of coloring supplies to make the experience is worthwhile.  I received this set for free from the company in exchange for an honest review. If you want to learn more on my first impressions, be sure to check out my YouTube video. 

In a nutshell - these markers are good for those who travel a lot and don't want to carry their expensive set of supplies.  One of the nice things about the marker set is that it's non-toxic. Some of the markers that I've tried usually have an awful smell that makes me dizzy. I haven't had the same reaction for this set of markers, so that's a plus.  

One of their biggest selling points is the ability to blend the marker colors using water. The only problem is that you don't want to blend the colors on standard paper. It's advised that you should work with watercolor paper in order to take advantage of the blending process.  The other nice thing about this marker set is that it doesn't bleed through the pages. Case in point - I was using these markers when coloring in the Magician from The Tarot Lady's Tarot Coloring Book

At a reasonable price under $30, I would say it's good for those who are getting started into adult coloring books and don't want to shell out too much money for fancy art supplies.

UNBOXING 8 Bit 2 5" Color LCD Retro Portable Handheld Game Console built in 162 games with Speaker

I'm a gamer at heart. I've always loved playing video games since I was 6 years old. Shoutout to my parents for introducing me the NES!  I did a quick unboxing video, showcasing from beginning to end on what you can expect when receiving this adorable item.

One of my first impressions about the device is how lightweight it feels. The biggest selling point is the amount of games included in the device. Upon opening, I do see a couple of familiar ones - Super Mario, Tetris, Contra, for example.  The only thing that I wasn't too fond off is the screen size and resolution.  I think the inclusion of the adapters to connect it via a monitor makes sense since there are those (like myself) who finds it hard to use the screen due to the glare. Some of the games were in either Japanese or Chinese characters, which I'm not able to read. It's a great time waster without the expense.

Mothers Day 2017 Look

HotelSpa® New Ultra-Luxury Handheld Shower with Revolutionary Push-Control Review

What I love about the 4 Spray Hand Shower is how lightweight the handle, compared to other extensions that are heavy. Not to mention, the width of the shower head makes it better for washing hair quickly. I usually color my hair and previously used a small hand shower that took me longer to wash out the color from my hair (about 20 minutes). With this handle, I managed to wash off my hair color at a faster rate (7 minutes). I love the massage setting on the handle. Very convenient to press on the button, instead of using a clicker on the side. Highly recommend!

iBeautyLabs Facial Masks Review

I love facial masks. They're very convenient and less messy. iBeautyLabs was kind enough to let me try out their facial masks - one in aloe vera and one dead sea. The first thing I've noticed was that the packaging was big. Usually, I'm accustomed to facial masks that are smaller in size. 

I decided to try out the dead sea mask. Applying it was easy. But I noticed that it kept slipping off. Not to mention, there wasn't much essence involved on the masks. Still, I did noticed a cooling effect. They're pretty decent, but I wouldn't consider them life changing. They're good if you want to minimize any puffiness or prep up the skin before makeup without any residue.

This looks more like a bondage mask...
