Best Beauty Tips For WOMEN

Whether you are in your early twenties or in your late 60s every woman wants to have great skin and look good when putting on make-up, maybe you don’t but I do, great skin is always a confidence booster. Some of you may not agree but I feel nice when I look in the mirror and I see how great my Skin is, and so today I decided to give you the best Beauty tips for women.

First all you have to really know your skin type, do you have oily skin, normal skin or combination skin, from there you will be able to know how to really look after your skin. I have written an article about my skincare routine and you can click here to read it.

So today I am really talking about what really works and what has worked for me when it comes to skin and makeup. For skincare first and foremost is my diet which includes fruits and vegetables. This for me has been my number thing that has really paid me well.

Here is a list of my BEAUTY Tips.

1. Know Your Skin type.

You really have to know your skin before you can go on buying skincare products to improve your skin. Or if you have skin issues.  Don’t just go on buying skincare products before knowing your skin type and doing a research.

2. Cleanse

Cleansing your face should be a part of your routine, I cleanse my face twice every day and I use natural based cleansers and most of my products are from Yves Rocher, I have oily sensitive skin, and have tried almost every products out there until I was introduced to Yves Rocher, their products and make-up are all natural based.

And if you would like to read an article I have written about Yves Rocher’s Products I freaking love,  please do to hesitate to click here to read.

3. Exfoliating

This is a must, I have always been a fan of exfoliating,  I got sick for sometime and stopped exfoliating only to wake up one day,  look in the mirror and saw dark spots all over my face and I could not believe what was happening, I started researching and watching skincare tips from YouTube videos and came cross a Sephora Artist who explained how dark spots are formed and I agree with him a hundred percent. Exfoliating is a very essential skincare routine.

I have gone back to exfoliation and I am seeing amazing changes and I did a 10 detox which was amazing and mind blowing, you can read the article by clicking here.

4. Water! Water!

I cannot emphasize the importance of drinking water, When I did a 10-day detox, I was drinking 1 liter of water diluted with the detox Juice, the amazing results I saw in just 3 days made me realize how important water is to your skin, I saw my dark spots clearing in Just 3 days, I am still amazed at the result and my guess is water had a very important part to play. I have now embarked on drinking 1 liter of water throughout the day, every day.

5. Masks

This is something new to me but I love the results I am getting, also with this I am using very gentle natural based masks by Yves Rocher and I will soon been writing a review about the masks I am using but this is very beneficial to your skin.

6. Fruits and Vegetables

This to me is my number one skincare treatment I mean me, this has proved to work miracles for me, I grow up in Africa and our house had mango trees and guava trees, my late mum also used to garden and we had from carrots, strawberries, tomatoes and onions, you name it,  but I am just a lover of fresh fruits and fresh vegetables. I just love a good bowl of salads. If you saw me and I asked me  how old I am? I know it would be very difficult for you to guess my age and I strongly believe this paid me very well when it comes to skin.

Having mentioned the above tips, this is how I do my daily routine, cleanse, toner, serums, moisturizer, then I go on to my makeup Primer, foundation, concealers, Powders and Bronzers. So if you are fair with yourself these are a lot of products to put on the face, so you might want to find a day or two where you just let your skin breath especially when you are at home, just cleanse and moisturizer your face and don’t put on any makeup but that is your choice. I do that all the time.

And lastly never ever go to sleep with your makeup on, always incorporate a night routine for your skin and you will be amazed at the results.

I hope you found my tips informative and helpful and if you have any suggestions or you want to share your beauty tips with me, please do not hesitate to leave your comment below and I will definitely get back to you.

Garnier SkinActive SPF Moisturizer With Vitamin C – Review

  Product : Garnier SkinActive SPF Active Moisturizer

Price :  $11.62

Where to Buy : Amazon.com

Overall Rank : 4.2 out of 5

Website : www.garnierusa.com

What is A moisturizer? A cream or lotion that is used to hydrate and restore moisture into the Skin.  Today I am talking about Garnier SkinActive SPF Moisturizer with Vitamin C  Review.

About The Product

This is a facial moisturizer with SPF 15 and it is formulated with an antioxidant complex of Vitamin C and Vitamin E, Lipo-Hydroxyl Acid LHA and Pine Bark Essence.

It is a light weight daily moisturizer that gives you brighter, smooth skin in Just a week, in a clinical test.  The face moisturizer with Sun Protectioj reduces the appearance of dark spots to reveal a more radiant, even skin tone.

It continues to say that this is a daily moisturizer with a fast-absorbing oil-free and non-greasy formula that is suitable for all skin types.

So I use curious because it says that you see result in 1 week and it clears dark spot, I have written about a detox that really cleared abit of my dark spot and left me with a glowing skin and you can click here to read.

But my a few of my dark spots are still noticeable and I was looking for a moisturizer that can clear that for me.  And since this says it does clear in just a week I decided to give a shot.

Pros.

It is fast-absorbing, oil-free and non-greasy It does reduce appearance of dark spot over a long period of use and not in a week as stated in the description of the product. It does turn dull rough skin into smooth Polished-Looking Skin with a more radiant, even skintone.

Cons.

Takes longer than 1 week to see actual results.

Does It do What It say?

Well it is a good moisturizer, smoothes skin, leaving it feeling soft and maybe to other people it gave them the actual result in 1 week but for me it took longer than 1 week to actually see the result but I did see a slight difference in the appearance of dark spots, which I have as stated earlier.

If you want to use it as a moisturizer and to reduce the appearance of dark spot, I would say it is a great product but just to expect it to give you a quick miracle, as with every other product, you need consistency and patient to see good results.

My Final Thoughts

I love mositurizers especially in winter when my skin tends to dry so often, I am satisfied with this moisturizer but I am not very excited about it, I am using it mainly to reduce dark spots.  It is something I can recommend to someone having problems with dark spots.

So it does not hurt to give it a try if you have dark spots but just make sure you understand that it will not give you instant results, you will have to use it for atleast a month to see any changes in your skin, atleast it did for me.

But everyone’s skin is different.  So try it and let me know how it goes, I would love to hear your views.

Yves Rocher’s 10 Days Defiligne Detox SOS Cleanse – My Review

Product  : Defiligne Detox SOS(10 days)

Website : www.yves-Rocher.com

Overall Rank : 98 out of 100 Owners :

Yves Rocher Headquarters : Rennes, France

First before we even look at this detox, lets first understand what detoxing is all about, some people maybe familiar with this but just in case there is someone out there who has no idea what I am talking about.  So let’s get down to business shall we?

What is Detoxing

I looked up the word and this is what it said, Detoxing is getting rid of toxic or unhealthy substances from the body.  If you are like me, you want to have a healthy lifestyle, you eat right and now you want to add detoxing, so how do you go about it?  I am glad you asked because I have a detox that is just right for you. So here it is..

This is a 10 days detox, and here is what Yves Rocher says about this product, defiligne Detox SOS favors elimination of waste and toxins by purifying the body.

A detox program that is regular and  an excellent starting point for a healthy life style.  I am a healthy fanatic and when ever I see something that says it improves your lifestyle, I want to try it though I always go for natural products with natural ingredients and Yves Rocher is good for this. Below is my article about Yves Rocher’s Products you can read it by clicking here!

I have heard so much about detox programs, how they improve your health and eliminate toxins by purifying your body, they are different kinds of remedies out there, namely Juice cleanses, sugar cleanses and detox diets, but you don’t need to change anything apart from Just adding this detox which comes in form of Juice.

It comes in a bottle and the packaging is good, you have a measuring cup and they recommend diluting 45ml of a measuring cup into 1 liter of water.  The taste is so good, it has a nice flavor and easy to drink, and here is my experience.

My 10 Days Detox Experience

Day 1

My first day was normal, remember this has to be consumed throughout the day, so after drinking like half, I started feeling a bit weak and cold, but nothing too serious.  Just some chills.

Day 2.

Same feeling and going to the the bathroom a lot.  I did not see any difference or maybe I did not pay much attention but the feelings were just like the first day I started drinking the detox, feeling weak and chills.

Day 3

As usual made my Detox Juice and went to do my skincare routine then I noticed a change in my skin, some of my dark spots had cleared and the skin looked so fresh, with a glow, I was really shocked and happy at the same time, I saw my skin clearing up really good. I was very excited.

I have written an article about my skincare routine and you can click here to read if you are interested!

Day 4

I continued to see  improvement in my skin, that is one thing I can say I really noticed.  Elimination of waste and toxins, I am sure I can safely say it does work, or else I was not going to see that much difference in my skin in just 3 days of doing the detox cleanse.

Day 5.

The results continued to improve and most of my dark spots had cleared, I still have a few but not as bad as before and I am thinking of doing another 10 days, to see if all dark spots will be cleared because I am really curious about this detox, the results really surprised me, because I was not really expecting those results.

Day 6

I am light in complexion and of late my skin has been darkening but thanks to this detox, my skin is clearing and my complexion is coming back to normal and I am so happy and super excited and looking forward to my next 10 days of detox cleansing and I can’t wait to start, the results were just amazing.

Day 7

Just continued seeing improvement in my skin and the continued clearing of dark marks.

Day 8

I felt weak but not like before and the chills are gone by now , but now but my skin keeps on improving, to really show that this detox is working, it shows with the improvement of the skin, this is my experience another person may experience something different but for me to see this change, I would rather use this than go for expensive creams that does not give that quick results.

Day 9

I was very happy with my complexion by day 9 but unfortunately I had only one more day left and I really wanted to continue but this is a 10 day detox program.

Day 10

I finally finished my detox and I was very satisfied with the results and I can safely say this detox works for me per say.  I could not believe how clear my skin was and just the clearing of dark spots or marks on my face was amazing and seeing the complexion returning to its normal color is mind blowing, I love this detox and I am definitely going to do another 10 days detox.

My Final Thoughts

I know there are so many detox programs out there and usually products don’t deliver so I was abit skeptic when I started using this detox but I am very impressed and I really like this product, I think this is very good even for clearing skin, worked for me maybe can work for others as well.

But I really really love this detox and if you want to give it a try please let me know how it goes, I would love to hear from you.

And if you find this article informative please do not hesitate to leave a comment and I will definitely get back to you, hope you can try it and share your experience with me.  I will be waiting to hear your views.

Radha Miracle Retinol Moisturizer – Review

Product : Radha Miracle Retinol Moisturizer

Price : $18:95

Where To Buy : Amazon.com

Overall Rank 4.5 out of 5

Website : www.radhabeauty.com

This is an anti aging moisturizer according to their website, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles, evens skin and brightens skin tones, which for me is great for a moisturizer.

But it also says treats hyper pigmentation for those suffering from this. It goes on to say Retinol supports natural collagen production, faster cell turnover and I was very curious, I am a curious person by nature and this had so many amazing things that it does to the skin, so thought of giving it a try.

I choose my skincare products very carefully because I have very sensitive skin and the ones that have worked for me are products from Yves Rocher, and I have also done an article about them you can read it by clicking here!

What does this moisturizer really do?

It is a Retinol (Vitamin A) so it signals the body to produce Collagen and new cells for a firmer smooth skin, I know that they recommend using it their serums and cleansers, but I have incorporated it into my Yves Rochers skincare products, so it all depends on what you want to achieve for your skin, whether you want to go by their recommendation or just incorporate like I did that is a choice you have to make.

It is combined with Vitamin E, Organic Aloe Vera, Green Tea, Jojoba Oil and Shea butter, this really helps to deeply moisturizer dehydrated skin and strengthens skin cells against premature aging and environmental aggressors. My skin tends to be dehydrated during winter and I find this moisturizer to hydrate my skin well, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

My skin also dries a lot on my forehead and this moisturizer has helped a lot. It gives a long-lasting hydration and I noticed my skin became smoother and just looked amazing, you have to use this product more than a month to really see good results, what I do is I check for my skin before using any skincare product and after a few days, I start taking note of some changes I am seeing.

Has it evened my skin? Not really but I can see my skin clearing abit and the smooth part is what is really great for me. Always remember to use a Serum first before using a moisturizer okay!

This is a safe product for all skin types.  It’s free of fillers, harmful fragrances and it is paraben free.

Pros.

Produces Collagen Evens Skin Tone Brightens Skin and treats hyperpigmentations

Cons

Takes abit longer to see results

How To Use

Cleanse with you favorite cleanser though they recommend their Vitamin C Cleanser or their organic Refreshing Clean cleanser, Tone and apply this A Vitamin C Serum.

My Final Thoughts

Yes this is a great moisturizer especially if you are targeting hyper pigmentation and wrinkles, It does feel good on the skin and gives that soft smooth skin, would I recommend it to anyone, yes but it does not brighten the skin as it says but it is does even skin tone which is good for me.

So if you really want a good Retinol Moisturizer I would this is one of those, so try it and let me know, I would love to hear your views and comment and Please do not hesitate to leave me a comment below and I will definitely get back to you. To your Flawless Skin.

My New MAKE-UP Routine


I have written more on skincare products, but today I just wanted to write about something personal, I know I love my skin looking young and flawless, don’t Judge, who doesn’t, if you are really honest you know I am right.

Every woman is looking for that youthful flawless skin but to achieve that, you have to put in some work and change a few things namely, what you put on your plate first. So I am writing about My New Make-up Routine.

I have written an article on my skincare routine click here to read ! and so today let’s look at how I achieve my natural look, the secret is to find what works for you, because I have come to learn that what may work for someone else might not work for me.

With make up there’s so much you need to know from undertones, to find the right foundation that is natural to your skin and knowing how to blend in everything.

But do not be afraid to try out things, and you will find out what works for you, Always buy products according to your budget and don’t over spend, there are amazing cheap products that are as good as expensive ones you just have to find what works for you. So having said that, here is my make-up routine, just remember you can’t subtract skincare routine from makeup, they work hand in hand.

Here is the List of my Make-up ROUTINE

1. Cleansers

Yves Rocher Cleansing Cream : Perfectly Cleanses even the most sensitive skin, it is sulfate free and therefore non foaming, its creamy texture cleanses the skin without water while protecting the integrity of the skin, I love the way it leaves my skin feeling so soft and smooth. A must have.

Yves Rocher – Pore System 2 in 1 Clean Pore Cleanser, I use this one in the evening, minimizes pores and reduces imperfections. I love it because it does really cleanse my face leaving it so cleans and fresh. Click here to read my review on Yves Rocher.

2, Serum

Serum Vegetal – This will leave your skin feeling soft, redensifies skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

3. Moisturizer

24 H intense hydrating cream, it intensely and durably moisturizers skin for 24 hours, leaves skin replenished, fresh and radiant.

4. Primers

I use Pupa Milano Professionals Primer which I absolute love, it just makes my skin silky and smooth works so well with my Mac Foundation, next is Yves Rocher Primer base which I use with Pure Light, Light and Luminous Foundation.

SmashBox Photo Finish Foundation Primer Light, for matte finish. I love these primers, but they do not control my oily skin that much and Am looking to find one that will really control my shine. But these are great primers to use.

5. Foundations

I am a MAC Fan, and I have to have at least One MAC Foundation and one Studio fix Powder Foundation for those days that I just don’t want to put on foundation. This acts like a powder and foundation in one. I absolutely love it, gives me a nice finish. M.AC Studio Fix Fluid SP 15 – shade NW50 for Foundation, and M.A. C Powder Studio Fix in the shade NW48.

Also, to my list of Foundations is Yves Rocher – Light and Lumious Foundation – Brun 700 this is skin oxygenation, boosting Rice Extract natural skin texture and yes it does give that natural look to it and I love it. It is my day to day foundation.

6. Concealers

Yves Rocher – Zero Defaut Flawless Concealer in the shade Beige Moyen this concealer I love it and it works so well and blends in well, just gorgeous.

M.A. C Studio Conceal and Correct, the orange and yellow works best for my skin undertone. Love how it conceals and corrects.

7. Powders

M.A. C Sudio Fix Powder Plus Foundation in the shade NW48, Perfect for a quick fix and Yves Rocher Pure Light Loose Powder that fixes and illuminates your make-up without shine, it does make your complexion appear lighter, and naturally Luminous all day.

8. Bronzers

Rimmel London – Sun Shimmer Maxi Bronzer for that touch up finish and also my favorite the new Yves Rocher Duo highlighter, combination of two shades of Powder, A Pearly shade for a shimmering finish and A Coppery shade for a warm glow. I love it but still trying to find my way around it.

8. Blush – Yves Rocher Botanical Color Blush, gorgeous color 05 Rose Hortensia

But I have also added to my list cushion foundations and I will write a review after a month want to see how this works out and if this product is worth having as a must have.

So I will be adding more new makeup products and review as I taste and see how well they work for my skin but for now this is my make-up routine, try some products from Yves Rocher, this are products free from paraben and alcohol, no harsh on the skin, I have seen so much improvement, my skin’s color is slowly coming back, I experienced very dry skin after an illness.

But I can see my skin returning to its usual normal color and softness, thanks to my new-found skincare products. Hope you can find what works for you.

And If you found this article useful please do not hesitate to leave me comments and I will definitely get back to you and if you have great skincare products or amazing makeup that you want me to try out please feel free to get in touch with me.
