Mia Mariu's Create Your Perfect Canvas Review + Giveaway




I am very excited to share with you my experience with some products from Mia Mariu! I really love the philosophy of Mia Mariu:

"Our product philosophy is that beauty and health go hand in hand. Everything you want.
All you need. Beauty and health in harmony. And with Mía you don't have to spend a
lot of money to get high quality botanical skin care, mineral cosmetics and
nature's nutritionals that you want and deserve. That is what we are all about.
Mía offers real health, beauty, balance and harmony. 

For real women. For real."


Mia Mariu is also cruelty free!

Let´s start with the claims of the  
Mia Mariu Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation Primer ($20):

"The Perfecting Finish Mineral Primer creates a smooth facial canvas allowing the foundation to glide on seamlessly, leaving a fresh natural look that lasts all day.  Our Mineral Primer is power packed with antioxidants and vitamins to give your skin a healthy glow.  Your skin will love you for it!  Oil free."


To my experience: truly this is a primer like I have never used before. This is not a silicone paste that does not let your skin breath but rather a very lotion like beautiful moisturizing- yet not greasy formula. It feels light- weight and fresh and does absorb very quick. This is the perfect way to prepare your skin for the foundation.

Here are the claims of the
Mia Mariu Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundation ($25):


"Our Perfecting Finish Mineral Foundations come in three formulas:  Liquid, Cream and Loose Powder.  They deliver oil-free, luminous all day coverage while providing the benefits of natural minerals and vitamins.  Each Mineral Foundation reduces the appearance of pores to obtain a perfectly matched radiant tone.  Enjoy a flawless all day refined finish!"


I chose the color "Vanilla" for my foundation. This is a full coverage foundation. I find it works best to use a flat Kabuki brush and really "swirl" the foundation into my skin in "circling motions".



The coverage is fantastic- the foundation does not move around- even after hours of wearing. It also leaves my face looking matte- which I really love because I have an oily face. I almost do not need any concealer on top of that!



Here are the claims of the
Mia Mariu Perfecting Finish Mineral Cream Concealer ($16):

"Perfecting Finish Mineral Cream Concealer is an oil-free, vitamin packed, high intensity formula that effectively covers imperfections like dark spots, discoloration and blemishes for a perfect and even tone.  The Mineral Cream Concealer is perfectly balanced to match your skin tone without leaving ash tones or a chalky look. "



The concealer looks like a cream but is very light weight and you can layer the product fantastic and use only as much as you need. I honestly have to say that I almost did not need any concealer at all anymore after the foundation already covered any unevenness on my face!

I find that this concealer also works great under my eyes- usually I find a cream concealer to heavy for use under my eyes- but this concealer really is not feeling heavy and not greasy at all. It is very smooth and easy to work with.

Me with the Mia Mariu Primer, Foundation and Concealer



Mia Mariu also let me try their Microdermabrasion Set ($55) which I found very lovely! You mix a Refinisher Cream (a very thick paste) and  a Thermal Activator (a clear liquid) in your palms and that will create some heat! Now with this mixture you can gently rub your face with. This was really an spa like experience! Loved it! It also smells very nice!

I can highly recommend Mia Mariu and am very happy to found such a fantastic brand!

And I have also a complete set (Mia Mariu Primer, Foundation and Concealer- TOTAL VALUE OF $61) for you to win! Wohoo! 

It is simple to enter! Just comment: I WANT TO WIN MIA MARIU! :-)

Blog Anniversary and GIVEAWAY!


Wow, I can not believe it, but today I am celebrating my 1 year Blog Anniversary!!! Wohoo! I can honestly say that I have come far with my blog. I have learned so much, have gained tons of readers and have gotten so much support from all of you! Thank you so much!

I think it is kind of funny that my Blog Anniversary is on 4th of July- that way it is very easy for me to always remember! My very first post on my blog was a review for Bath & Body Works (click on the link if you like to read it) which I find ironic since this is already a cruelty free brand! So I was on the right track there!

In the beginning my main purpose of this blog was only to share all my ideas on how to get free Beauty stuff. My most read post with more then 76.000 views to this day is: The 10 BEST WAYS TO GET FREE BEAUTY SAMPLES!

My blog later evolved into doing tags, reviews, skin care tips, anti aging tips, fashion ideas, DIY and whatever else came to my mind... and since May I am going cruelty free and I want to encourage my readers to go cruelty free as well. I feel like my blog has an even deeper purpose now.

I am very thankful for all my readers and that is why I am hosting a Giveaway for you! 1 lucky winner will win: an eye shadow palette, 2 lipsticks, 3 single eye shadows, a CC Cream sample from Studio Gear- all in a cute little Make up bag.





HERE IS HOW TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY:

Because going cruelty free is one of my blog purposes, here is what you need to do to enter this Giveaway:

I like you to go on my post: THE BEST CRUELTY FREE MAKE UP AND COSMETIC 2014 and find your favorite cruelty free brand in my list and then come back on this post and tell me in the comments which one it is. This step is mandatory- all the other steps are not mandatory but remember: the more steps you finish, the higher your chances of winning!

Don´t forget to confirm your entry through the rafflecopter widget below!!!





This Giveaway is OPEN INTERNATIONALLY! GOOD LUCK!!!

 HAPPY 4TH OF JULY TO ALL OF YOU!!!

Nature´s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies GIVEAWAY!!!


FREE PR SAMPLE

I have another Giveaway up for you guys! I was given from Smiley360 (You can become a member too!) a bottle of Nature´s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies to try and they are providing another bottle for you to win!

Here are the claims of the product:

"Nature's Bounty Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies provides you with the vital nutrients your body needs to support your natural beauty from within. Vitamin E and Vitamin C are antioxidants. Vitamin E contributes to skin health, and Vitamin C is involved in collagen production and formation, which forms the basis for vibrant skin. Biotin helps to maintain healthy hair and promotes healthy nails by acting at the nail matrix, the base of the nail."

I am taking these gummies since 3 weeks and all I can say is: they taste yummy! ;-) They taste like strawberry.  I do not have any problems with my hair or nails- both are strong so that is why I can not say that something dramatic changed in these 3 weeks. You are supposed to take 2 gummies a day and that will give you a total of 2,500 mcg of Biotin which is 833 % of the daily value what you should intake. I guess such a big amount surely will help your hair and nail growth. 

Vitamin C and Vitamin E are of course also great ingredients for your whole body. The draw back is probably the sugar intake (and Corn Syrup)- but otherwise these would probably not taste so delicious! 

Here is what´s also inside: Corn Syrup, Sugar, Dicalcium Phosphate, Grape Juice
Color Concentrate, Gelatin, Modified Food Starch, Citric Acid, Lactic Acid,
Natural Strawberry Flavor, Black Carrot Juice Color Concentrate, Maltodextrin,
Fractionated Coconut Oil(Contains one or more of the following: CarnaubaWax, Beeswax), Silica

Nature´s Bounty Gummies taste like strawberries

So, if you like to win a bottle yourself- off to the Giveaway! No step is mandatory but the more steps you finish the higher are your chances of winning. Open to US residents only.

Don´t forget to leave a valid email address. I contact the winner with email and reserve the right to disqualify if she/he does not respond within 2 days and will pick another random winner through Rafflecopter.

Review Leven Rose Jojoba Oil Review + Giveaway


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


Leven Rose Jojoba Oil
I am excited to share with you this wonderful Jojoba Oil! I am a big fan of natural products and especially of oils (and serums!). Here is what the product claims:



"Our 100% Pure Organic Jojoba Oil is the pure and totally natural solution to your skin and hair problems!
• Lightweight and easily absorbs into skin, hair and nails.
• Achieve that radiant glow and supple skin.
• Fresh and long-lasting.
• Organic - no preservatives, chemicals or artificial fragrances used."

Leven Rose Jojoba Oil
So you can use this for your skin or on your hair- I chose to use it on my hair. I always like to use some oil on my hair after I washed it because my hair ends are very dry. This is a fantastic product and it is very, very rich and hydrating. I needed really only a tiny amount of it- like 1 drop. It is a yellow oil- that is why they call it their "Liquid Gold"! :-)

Leven Rose Jojoba oil


 I rubbed it between my palms and then padded it gently on my hair ends. It makes my hair super shiny and it feels so wonderful! This is a 100 % natural product and I felt it smells somehow like "nature" if this makes any sense. Somehow it made me feel like I am standing in a Rain forest or something like that. This is BTW a giant bottle (4 fl oz). This will surely last me for a long, long time!

Leven Rose Jojoba Oil


I recommend this product highly. Get the Leven Rose Jojoba Oil here.

And here comes YOUR CHANCE to win this beautiful Jojoba oil! YAY! No step is mandatory but the more steps you finish, the higher your chances of winning! Open to US residents. GOOD LUCK!

Belitae FRESH-C Vitamin C Serum Review + Giveaway


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

As most of you know, I am a complete Vitamin C serum believer. I think this is one of the best Anti Aging products you should include into your skin care routine. So I was happy when Belitae send me their  FRESH-C Vitamin C Serum for review.

Here are some of the claims for the product:

 "Belitae FRESH-C Vitamin C Serum Key Benefits:
• Helps promotes the synthesis of collagen and elastin
• Corrects the appearance of sun-damaged skin, helps fades age spots
• Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles
• Protects skin cells from UV damage
• Soothes inflammation
• Increases the effectiveness of sunscreen"

 

Usually my Vitamin C Serums are in a brown glass bottle but this one comes in blue! And I love it! So pretty! Now I have tried already a couple different Vitamin C serums and what I noticed right away is that this serum is completely clear- all others I have tried are a little bit milky.


Maybe this is due to the fact that this serum is formulated with STAY-C50. STAY-C50 is proven to be a more stable and bioavailable form of Vitamin C. And although STAY-C 50 is an extremely potent antioxidant, it does not oxidize in the bottle. So I guess this Vitamin C Serum will stay longer fresh then others! Good for us!

The feel is just like all the other Vitamin C serums I have tried: lightweight and easy to apply. Anybody - no matter what skin type you are- can easily add this step into their skin care routine as this will not change the ability of applying your primer or make up or moisturizer. You should apply this serum every morning after cleansing your face. It absorbs quickly in only seconds.


Now with Belitae you do not only get your Vitamin C (which alone would be already a fantastic product)- but no! There is more! They included Botanical Hyaluronic Acid which is a perfect add on because it has a unique ability to hold more than 1000 times its weight in water. And this will plump your skin and make it look hydrated and firm! But wait! There is even more! They included also Organic Aloe Vera! This will sooth inflammation and strengthens the skin's response to free radicals. It also decreases hyperpigmentation and corrects the appearance of sun-damaged skin.







Get your Belitae Vitamin C Serum here.

Or you just enter my Giveaway and get to try this wonderful product for free! No step is mandatory but remember- the more steps you do, the higher your chances of winning! US residents only- good luck!
