Freya Intensive Anti-Aging Serum Review

I was recently sent a bottle of Freya ™ Scandinavian Skin Science Intensive Anti-Aging Serum from Freya ™ and Mommerce to test out and give my down and dirty opinions on it.  I’m so glad that they did!  I wouldn’t have tried this product otherwise, because I’ve never heard of the brand before.

Now look at this gorgeous bottle!
Freya Anti Aging SerumThe packaging itself is pure beauty!
It comes in a beautiful 30 ml/ 1 fl oz Aquamarine glass pump bottle.  It’s the epitome of a luxury skin care product.

Freya Anti Aging SerumFreya Anti Aging Serum
Packaging:
Like I stated above, it comes in a refreshing aquamarine colored 30 ml glass bottle.  They chose the perfect color for this product, especially this is an Arctic Antioxidant Correction product.  The color of the bottle just makes you happy by looking at it.
It has a pump that dispenses the perfect amount of anti aging serum out.  The bottle itself is quite heavy, so it doesn’t feel generic or cheaply made like some others.  

Consistency/Finish:
It is thick, off-white in color, and smooth, which is great because a little goes a long ways.  I just use one pump of the Freya ™ Intensive Anti-Aging Serum.  The finish is hydrating and illuminating.  It also has a light and refreshing fragrance.  I look forward to putting this on my face and neck.

Freya Intensive Anti Aging Serum

Application:
I’ve been using Freya ™ Intensive Anti-Aging Serum for three (3) weeks now.  I use it twice daily.  Once in the morning after I wash my face and again right before bed after I wash my makeup off.
I only use one (1) pump for my face and neck.  Like I said, a little goes a long ways and I want this bottle to last as long as possible.
I pump out the product on my middle finger and tap it with my other middle finger and I dab it on each side of my forehead, temples, below my eyes, cheeks, nose, chin, and neck.
Then I just tap it all over my face and neck softly with my pointer, middle, and ring fingers together without tugging and stretching my skin.  I let in absorb and penetrate in my skin for a minute then afterwards I apply a daily moisturizer.
When I apply it on before bed, I do the same, but I add my prescription acne cream in the routine. (I haven’t had any problems with mixing the three products together.)

Durability:
For me, I can feel the fullness and hydration of my skin all day.  I have combination more on the oily side type of skin in the summertime and combination skin in the winter.

For the product itself, the Freya website states:
When used according to instruction, each Freya product is designed to last approximately 60 days. An unopened container stored in a cool place will last up to 3 years. An opened container will remain good for 9 months.

Since I haven’t heard of this brand prior to me receiving it, I went to their website to read more about it.  Now that I’m in my 30’s, I’m taking care of my skin better than I did when I was younger.  I’m always looking for skin care products.  I live in Florida, so we get tons of sun, beach winds, coldness, and this year, it actually snowed and had freezing rain.  We get a lot of different environment elements here.  So, I’m paying more attention to my skin care routine and regimen.  I just wished that I started earlier, like in my early 20’s.  Better late than never though!

On the Freya website is states:

Experience the game-changing power of the LEXA™ complex in this, Freya’s most potent regenerative serum. By harnessing the best of Scandinavian BioMarine research, the Intensive Anti-Aging serum serves as an optimal tool to rebuild, restore, and revitalize skin on a cellular level.

Freya Intensive Anti-Aging serum contains the most powerful concentration of Nano-Encapsulated Marine Omega-3, the uniquely preserved and singularly pure ingredient which allows for reduced inflammation, heightened elasticity, and visibly improved skin tone.Skin is supple.

I’m glad that I’m able to use this Anti-Aging serum.

Favorite Body Lotion Aveeno Daily Moisturizer

Favorite Body Lotion Aveeno Daily Moisturizer

Favorite Body Lotion Aveeno Daily Moisturizer

With the New Year, I’m trying to make sure that I’m sticking to my Beauty New Years Resolutions.   If you haven’t seen them, you can check them out HERE.

I purchased this Aveeno Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion.  I’ve been using it for a week now and I love it.

I purchased it at a local grocery store.   They didn’t have the one that I used to use, Aveeno Creamy Oil, but this will do for now.

I also have eczema so moisturizing my skin is a must.  So, if you have eczema,  I highly encourage you to start moisturizing your body if you don’t already.

After I shave in the shower and get out, I put this all over my body and it makes my skin super soft and smooth.  It’s real important now to moisturize in the winter months because this coldness sucks out the moisture from our bodies and makes us ashy, regardless what our ethnicity is.

My skin is still super soft in the mornings when I wake up.  I can totally feel the difference when I don’t put body lotion on after the shower.  I’ll take super smooth skin over dry, itchy skin any day.  Even if it takes us a couple of extra minutes to get ready, I’m fine with it.

On the Aveeno ® Moisturizing Lotion bottle it states:

This unique lotion helps to calm and relax you as you massage it into your skin, while moisturizing to leave skin soft and smooth.  Aveeno ® combines the calming scents of  lavender and essential chamomile and ylang-ylang oils with the soothing properties of natural colloidal oatmeal – long known to hold in moisture.   This naturally nourishing,  non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and is blended with rich emollients to moisturize for a full 24 hours.

Aveeno® Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion helps improve your well-being by calming and relaxing you, while providing long-lasting moisturization.

I love the mild scent of this lotion.  If your nose is sensitive,  I would smell it before purchasing it.  Just like everything that has a scent, you want to make sure that you can tolerate the scent, especially if you’re going to put this on your whole body.

I love the Aveeno ® brand.  I love how it has the oatmeal factor in it.  Plus, you can purchase this at practically any drug store or grocery store and it doesn’t cost that much.

What is your favorite body lotion right now?

Best gifts for Women

The Best Gift Guide for the Woman you Love

If your special lady is anything like me, then she will LOVE these gifts.

If you don’t have that special lady in your life, then I will gladly, with a smile on my face accept any of these gifts from you. I’m jus’ sayin’!!

Valentines Day gifts

I don’t know any woman out there that doesn’t love perfume.  Unless for some reason that they’re allergic to them. But, I haven’t met one yet.

Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior

Hypnotic Poison purfume
I love pretty much any perfume that has hints of vanilla in them. It’s also known that vanilla is a natural aphrodisiac. This  is my everyday luxury perfume.  It makes me feel sexy and sensual and I’m always getting compliments from men when I wear this.  I can never run out of this perfume or I’ll feel naked.
Now, since you men are buying this for your special woman, I know what you may be thinking since I just said that men are always complimenting me when I wear this.  You’re probably thinking in your head, “Why would I want men to compliment my woman when I’m not around?”  Don’t worry Boo, your special lady is only thinking of you and what you’re feeling when she’s around you with the Hypnotic Poison perfume on.
The top notes are apricot, plum and coconut; middle notes are tuberose, jasmine, lily of the valley, rose, Brazilian rosewood and caraway; base notes are sandalwood, almond, vanilla, and musk

The Christian Dior site describes Hypnotic Poison as:

The mystery of Dior’s legendary forbidden fruit lives on in a magical, modern potion that blends femininity with boldness. Four contrasting facets – intoxicating bitter almond and caraway spice, opulent Sambac jasmine, mysterious Jacarandra and sensuous vanilla and musk– make for a compelling, bewitching fragrance fusion. Intoxicating and extravagant.

Here are several places that you can purchase this for your woman.
Sephora
Macy’s
Dillards
Nordstrom

Those are just some places you can go to where you can sample it and purchase.
Seriously, you can’t go wrong with this.  Unless that is, she doesn’t like vanilla.

Victoria's Secret Pink Collection

Alright, I don’t know any woman who does not like receiving Victoria’s Secret gifts.
I personally wear Victoria’s Secret Pink Collection to lounge in EVERY DAY!
If you know me, I am a total FSU football fan.  Even my FSU jerseys are from Victoria’s Secret.
They have everything from the cutest every day panties, bras, tank tops, sweat pants, sweat shirts, shirts, nighties, sport bras, shorts, lounge pants, flip-flops, etc.
I’m sure she’ll love to see that Pink striped bag full of Victoria’s Secret goodies!

CHANEL

CHANELCHANELCHANELCHANEL PINK PURSECHANEL, need I say more?  I don’t think so.  There is no other way to say I LOVE YOU to your lady than to surprise her with some CHANEL.  CHANEL dresses, shirts, purses, wallets, watches, jewelry, shoes, OMG just CHANEL. Enough said on that.

COACH
COACH pink watches

If you can’t tell by now, I love Pink!
This is a great everyday Coach watch if your lady like pink and Coach.
Coach has great watches so if she doesn’t like pink, there are several other styles to choose from.

Hello Kitty

I’m a huge fan of Hello Kitty!  Every holiday or special occasion, people always gift me with Hello Kitty products. I’m seriously an easy person to shop for.
This is a super cute pearl Hello Kitty ring and Hello Kitty suitcase.  It’s not for everyone, but if she has an inner kid in her, this is so cute!

VALENTINO

Valentino dress

VALENTINO dresses galore!  The Valentino name in itself, is just a sexy strong name and the dresses will bring out your inner goddess.  Of course this dress has hints of pink in it as well.

Zoya Nail Polishes

Zoya Pink Nail polishes

I always have my nails painted.  It makes me feel good, plus it keeps them strong and healthy. Having your nails polished has a feminine appeal to them.  It’s rare to ever see my nails without polish on them.  Right now, I’m loving Zoya nail polishes.  They have such an array of colors it’s pretty much impossible to just choose one polish.

So there’s my Valentines Day gift guide for that special lady in your life.
I hope you all have a very relaxing and lovely Valentine’s Day!
Remember not to stress out about Valentine’s Day.  It really is just another day on the calendar.  You should be showing your special lady or man that you love them everyday and not just because it’s labelled as “Valentine’s Day”.

What are some items on your Valentines gift Wish List?

Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray

Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray

I received this bottle from my January’s GlossyBox.

Toni & Guy Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray

After I took my shower last night, I sprayed some on my hair while it was semi wet still and fell asleep.

Then when I woke up, I just sprayed a little more on and rubbed/massaged my scalp to puff it out and here is the end results.

Toni&Guy sea salt texture spray

20140208_121114-120140208_121215-120140208_120958-1

I have to say that I’m impressed with Toni & Guy’s Casual Sea Salt Texture and Body Spray!

It truly does give my long hair body and volume.

When I run out of this bottle,  I’ll have to go out and get the full size bottle.

The Toni&Guy’s website states this about the product:

Creates texture and body with light to medium hold. Suitable for all hair types and perfect for achieving a lived in, beach look. Spritz evenly root to tip, on towel-dried or dry hair and work through to create tousled waves and natural movement.

For extra hold and texture, layer through dry hair and re-style with fingers.

This is exactly what I did without even looking it up until now.

What do y’all Beauties think??
