Adovia Dead Sea Mud Shampoo Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Well after trying the Adovia Dead Sea Mud Mask and having such an amazing experience, I was beyond thrilled when I was chosen to review their Dead Sea Mud Shampoo.

When I first got this shampoo I thought it would be very thick and gritty. I was also a little nervous about the smell that it may have during and after use! Also, I feared that my hair would be really stiff and stringy after using it. 

Since, I thought it was going to be so thick (like a paste....is what I thought)....I started to pour quickly into my hand and I was VERY surprised as it poured out! It was nowhere near as thick as I had expected and the amount I poured into my hand and used was really more than I would have needed! Here is how much I used:

So it really is not gritty at all and it is pretty thin! The other concern I had about smell......the smell was NOT gross. It was actually scented, almost perfume-y (is that even a word...lol) The scent was a little stronger than I would normally like but after you rinse out the shampoo....the scent is not too strong and it isn't bad at all. The shampoo did lather really well! 

Once dry and brushed.....my hair is not stiff or stringy at all! On the contrary actually, it is very soft and has a beautiful shine! I love this shampoo. I am happy with the outcome and I would recommend it to anyone looking to try something new! 

Let me know if you try it! I would love to hear your experience! Just leave me a comment! :)

Garcinia Cambogia Advanced/Slender Cleanse Advanced Bundle Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As most of my readers know, I am open to try most any products and, like most people, would love to lose a few pounds! I was chosen to try and review Garcinia Cambogia  Advanced/ Slender Cleanse Advanced Bundle. 

Sadly, I am unable to give an accurate review of this product because I am not part of the target audience. I did lose 2 pounds in two weeks of taking this product! However after contacting the manufacturer about why I was not losing more weight, I was informed that this product is for the individual who has more than 20 pounds to lose and lives a sedentary lifestyle.

With that being said, I only want to lose about 10-15 pounds and I am quite active (working out at the very minimum of 3 days a week and on average 4-5 days). This did explain why I was not losing as quickly as I had been expecting to. However, the fact that I am not the target consumer and I still lost 2 pounds....that can only mean good things for the intended customer.

I do want to mention, when I contacted the manufacturer....they were very quick to respond and very helpful. They were absolutely honest. They weren't just trying to get me to buy their product! They told me that they were "I'm happy it didn't work for you because that means you're healthier than 90% of my target audience (it feels funny to say I'm happy it doesn't work, but your health is more important to me) [than selling their product]". I think this is a great company, especially if they are so personable and honest. It shows true character and sincerity on their part.

I do want to share with my readers what the company says about their product:

Weight Loss and Fat Burning has Never Been Easier with Garcinia Cambogia Advanced and Super Cleanse!


Your FAVORITE TV Doctor demands

Picture Collage Maker Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As a blogger and mother, I am always making photo collages and trying to put multiple pictures into one picture so I can upload easier and share more! Then as a independent distributor of ACE and all SABA products, I am ALWAYS making before and after pictures of my customers that are losing so much weight! So as you can expect, I use many photo collage sites and programs. While I have found a few that I like....I was yet to find any one program that did all the things that I wanted it to do! Until now......

I have been chosen to review the Picture Collage Maker. I have to say this is the BEST photo collage software that I have came across thus far. That means something because I have used MANY different programs such as Fotor, PicMonkey, PiZap, Collage It, Photoscape, etc. With Picture Collage Maker you have so many choices and options to use!

When you first start the program you have four options to choose from:

For this collage that I made I chose the option "Template Collage Wizard"! Then once I chose that another window popped up to upload the photos that I wanted to use. I did this and then clicked to make my collage. Another window with a lot of other options popped up. This is that screen:

For this I thought all of the options were just so amazing! There are so many different things that you can make with this software. I ended up choosing collage on the left and then choosing "photo wall 002". This is the resulting photo collage that I made!

Now this is what I thought was the finished product so I clicked save photo and then clicked next. That's where I was wrong. It brought me to a new screen where I could do so many more edits and adjustments to this collage! Here is my end product after I edited and adjusted it to my liking:

 Now I have not tried all the different settings and options yet because there are so many different ones. I did want to show a few more that I have made using this software though.

I want to share a little of what the company says about their product:

Valentia Vitamin C Serum Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I have been looking for something that would be effective to use on my skin for the fine lines and wrinkles but I wanted it to even out my skin too! Everything that I was finding either had reviews stating that it was oily and caused breakouts or was extremely expensive. I wanted something that worked and was a reasonable price. So you just imagine how excited I was to be asked to write a review on Valentia Vitamin C Serum after I tried it.

I gave it a try! The first thing I noticed about this product is that it was thicker than I thought it was going to be. Most product that I have tried are watery or oily and very thin. This Vitamin C serum is what I would actually consider a 'serum'. It is thicker and has substance to it. I like how smooth it went on. Another plus was that I only needed about half a dropperful in order to cover my whole face. The other thing that I like about this product is that it absorbs quickly! I don't have to wait for the absorption to be finished. It is pretty instantaneous.

The way I use the product is a little different than some people may. During the week (Monday through Friday), I get up and get my daughter off to school, make and eat breakfast, and then get on the treadmill. After my work out, I take a shower. When I get out of the shower and get dressed.....I put my vitamin C serum on. Then on the weekends, since I usually take those two days off of the treadmill, I wait until just before bed to use my Vitamin C serum. That way it has all night to work. With this being said, I have to say that....when I go to bed on the weeknights, my skin still feels soft and smooth and it isn't really greasy (like it has been with other vitamin C serums that I have tried). Then on the weekends, I love how when I wake up on Sunday morning my face feels so soft and smooth! It looks refreshed and primed for the day!

I wanted to share a few things that the maker's of the product have to say about the product:

"Valentia Skin Care NEW - EVEN GLOW SERUM - 20% Vitamin C - Natural & Organic Ingredients -

98% Natural Ingredients (see below for a description of our Key Ingredients chosen specifically to enchance Vitamin C efficacy on the skin)

    Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

    Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

    Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.

    The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.

    Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger."

Overall, I really like this product! I will be purchasing it in the future! If you are looking for a great facial product to help with fine lines and evening out your skin.....I would say give this one a try! Plus at just $35, it's a steal!
