REVIEW: OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Face Serum

Good Morning!

I am back with another skincare review today from OZ Naturals, an all natural cruelty-free company.
For the past two weeks I have been trying their Hyaluronic Acid serum. I have mentioned before in reviews and on my YouTube channel how much I love Hyaluronic Acid vitamins so I was excited to try the serum form. This serum comes with a dropper and the actual consistency is like a gel. One dropper full is enough to cover your whole face.

 

The Details:
Cost:~ $16.45
Size: 1oz (30ml)
Where to buy: http://www.amazon.com/OZ-Naturals-Hyaluronic-Satisfaction-GUARANTEED/dp/B00C7DYBX0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1428716684&sr=8-3&keywords=oz+naturals

How I use this product:
After cleansing and toning my face I smooth one dropper full all over my face and neck. I let it sink in before applying my moisturizer. I prefer to use this in the morning but it can be used morning and night. I also really like to add a little of this serum to my full coverage foundation for a healthy, dewy makeup look.

Recently I have been sick with a bad cold so some days I would go without makeup and just apply this serum and my moisturizer. I think this product is really nice for make-up free days and has helped my skin not look so drab even while being sick. The formula is also powerful but gentle on your skin.

Results:
I have noticed that this serum boosts my overall skin hydration.I think it has helped smooth my overall skin texture too. I have some very fine lines on my forehead and I notice this serum helps smooth them and make them less noticeable under my makeup.

Final Thoughts:
I think this Hyaluronic Acid serum is very nice and I would recommend it to anyone who wants more hydrated, radiant skin. I also think if you are just starting to experiment with high quality skincare products this would be a good product to start with. It won’t irritate your skin and will give you a nice youthful glow. Overall I really love the OZ Naturals brand including this serum. I love that this company creates all natural and cruelty-free products.

Have you tried any OZ Naturals products? Let me know in the comments sections or on any of my social media pages. I would love to hear your experience.

Thanks for being here and have a great day!

REVIEW: Radha Beauty Skin Clearing Serum

Good Morning, lovelies!

I am really excited to share this skincare review with you today. Over the past 6-8 months I have been dealing with some serious skin issues. I thought I had cleared up my sporadic acne issues and then one day I started getting a lot of blemishes around my chin, on my cheeks, and on my forehead. I thought at first it was hormonal or due to a migraine medication I was taking but the blemishes continued to appear even after I stopped the medication. I discussed these skin issues with my doctor and she could not think of anything in particular that might be causing my constant breakouts.
I also tried changing my diet and taking vitamins. Nothing seemed to work.

I recently joined Brand Backer, which is a platform for bloggers/vloggers. This site allows bloggers to view products and apply to try them. I was reading through the description for the Radha Beauty Skin Clearing Serum and I thought, “Yes, that is what I need. ” I applied and gratefully was accepted. I have been using this product twice a day for two weeks and my skin has improved 100%. The formula is a liquidy consistency but a little goes a long way. You really get a high level of quality for your dollar with this product. I would say it is comparable to extremely high end skincare products. The scent is herbal and fresh. I do find that the scent goes away once the product full absorbs into your skin.

After two weeks of use all of the deep blemishes I was experiencing are gone and I started noticing an improvement in my skin after just a few days. My skin looks brighter, clearer, and more even. I also notice that my freckles and dark spots are starting to fade. I think this was what my skincare routine was missing. I think this product could be used to help with many types of skin issues and for a wide range of skin types and ages. If you have any doubts you can always consult your doctor.  I definitely recommend this product and I will be repurchasing it for sure.

The Details:
Size: 1oz (30ml)
Cost:$19.89 Shipping if free with Amazon Prime or $3.99+ depending on the shipping option you chose.
Active Ingredients: 
20% Vitamin C
2.5 % Retinol
5% hyaluronic Acid
2 % Salicylic Acid
3.5 % Niacinamide

Importation Information:

  • You should always wear a sunscreen but especially when using this product as it contains Retinol, which can make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
  • This product is made with all natural ingredients and is cruelty free!
  • Use 1 pump after cleansing and toning your skin. This product is very potent so a little goes a long way.
  • Allow product to skin into your skin for 5 minutes before continuing with your other skincare routine steps.
Bottom Line:
Would I recommend this product? YES!

Review Update: Trader Joe’s Nourish Antioxidant Face Serum

Hello again!

About a month ago I did a review video on my YouTube channel and in that video I reviewed a skincare product from Trader Joe’s. I also told you in that video that I would update you on how it was working after I used it for a bit more time.

In case you didn’t see the video you can watch it here or below:

Now, on to the update FAQ style.

Q:Have you seen an improvement in your skin from using this product?
A: Over the past 1-2 months my skin has improved a lot but I think it is a combination of things. Since I have used this product in place of my primer I have noticed my pores are less clogged but I still get the same primer effect. I think this product has helped smooth my skin and hold in moisture from the daily moisturizer I use on top.

Q: What are the pros for the product?
A: It’s gentle on your skin. It’s full of great, mostly natural ingredients. It helps retain moisture and hydration in the skin. It doubles as a light primer. It is well packaged and I like the sanitary pump. It works great on bare skin or paired with a little powder for a make-up less look.

Q: What are the cons for this products?
A: It’s a bit too thick in my opinion for a serum. I also wish it didn’t have as much dimethicone as it does.

Q: Would you repurchase this product?
A: As of right now I don’t think I will immediately repurchase this product because I want to try similar products from other brands but it is something I would use again down the road.

Q: Would you recommend this product?
A: I would but with a disclaimer that it is not like traditional syrupy serums. If you are looking for a primer with the added benefits of antioxidant ingredients then this is a good product to try.

Q: Is this product worth the cost?
A: At $10 for 1 fluid ounces I definitely think this is worth the price. I have been using it generously for 1-2 months and I really haven’t made a big dent. You are also getting a lot of great ingredients for that $10. (if you’d like a full list of the ingredients just let me know and I’ll type it up.)

Q: Overall impression?
A: Overall I think Trader Joe’s did a great job developing this product. I think it mixes skincare with cosmetics and I like that a lot. Anytime you can accomplish two things with one product it’s a plus. Also, like I said in my video I feel this is a unisex product which is unique. Good job, TJ’s!

As always let me know if you have questions or comments. You can tweet me @imperfectperla, email me at cwlinguistics@gmail, or follow me on Instagram @cbwright.

Have a great day and thanks for being here!
