Swiss Botany Vitamin C Serum + GIVEAWAY!


I have been using Swiss Botany Vitamin C Serum for two weeks now and it’s definitely a good Vitamin C product. A little bit about this product is that it is Made in USA. This product is supposed to help brighten, soften, and boost collagen production. It’s also a concentrated anti-wrinkle serum to assist in reducing fine lines+wrinkles. It also comes in an airless container, with a pump, which helps keep oxygen out to keep the vitamin C from breaking down. That’s a good thing!

Ingredients include: Deionized water, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, witch hazel extract, glycerin, carbomer, citric acid, phenoxyethanol, caprylyl glycol, sorbic acid, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, L-Arginine, Sodium hyaluronate.

The directions are pretty simple. Apply to face and neck. I’ve been applying this after I cleanse my face. I’ll let it dry for a few minutes before adding my moisturizer. As it’s drying, I can actually feel the layer of the product – as if creating a barrier on my skin. I’ve also been applying this on my neck, since I’m starting to worry about aging around my neck area! YIKES!

The product texture itself is very thin and runny. It also has a yellow tint to it and it is sweet smelling. I actually like this Vitamin C serum and have enjoyed using it for the past two weeks! For me it really helps add an extra boost of hydration to my skin. It has made my skin feel softer and I feel as thought it has also helped my make my skin feel firmer.

The airless pump container only holds 1 fluid oz, while it may not sound like a lot, two pumps was enough to cover my entire face and neck. This product is currently available on Amazon for $35.99 & FREE Shipping. I think this product is totally worth the purchase! Swiss Botany IS having a giveaway for one of my readers, so one lucky winner will get to try this product for free!

You’ll Never Guess What Happened Next: Precision Eyelash Curler


Hey. It’s been a while? What have I been up to? Curling my eyelashes. Everyday.

Okay, so I received the Precision eyelash curler by Majestic Bombay. It’s supposed to fully lift (sounds like a bra) and create dramatic lashes! The ergonomic handle is supposed to help the user effortlessly create perfect curled lashes with every use. Let’s go through the motion, ah-hem, pictures, shall we?

The packaging is great! It’s in a nice quality, non-flimsy, box. It comes with a little pamphlet that explains how to use the eyelash curler, which I can appreciate.

It comes with TWO extra refill cushion pads – which is nice to have extras on hand. I actually like the handle and the style of the handle. It’s comfortable to use and it is lined with a sort-of rubber cushion. And if you don’t want to use the inside of the handle, you can hold the curler where ever else it has the rubber cushion to help curl your lashes.

It has a very long opening. You’ll see what I’m talking about in the photo below. The wide/long opening doesn’t fit my eyes very well, despite the fact that Majestic Bombay states it will work with all eye types/size.

See the difference between Majestic Bombay and Lancome? The opening in length is much wider than my Lancome eyelash curler. So unfortunately, I wanted to love Majestic Bombay, but it’s not my favorite eyelash curler. The other thing is the bottom part of the “jaw”(?) – where the cushion is – that part of the tool was loose and a tad crooked. I’m not sure if this is on purpose, but every time I used it, the left side was always higher than the right side. One other downfall, was that it did pinch a little. Sad face.

Side note: I had to compare this to my Lancome eyelash curler to show the difference in the size of the gap.

However, once I got used to this particular curler and used it, it did curl every single lash from left to right or right to left. It also curled really nicely! That is a WIN! With this type of curler, you can also use a hairdryer to heat up the pad slightly to help create a longer lasting curl.

My final opinion on this? Even though it did pinch a little, this particular curler is actually much better than the other affordable curlers that I have used. This one is currently $12.99 on Amazon. It also comes with a lifetime warranty.
