Review GlamGlow Youth Mud

I received this deluxe sample size of GlamGlow YouthMud in one of my monthly beauty boxes. I seriously don’t remember which one though.

I fell in love with the original GlamGlow SuperMud. When I received this one, I was super stoked to try it out.

What I do normally before I use a mud mask is to steam my face in my at-home facial steamer or right after a nice hot shower. That way the steam opens up your pores. When my pores are nice and opened, I put on my mud mask. That way it’s easier for the mask to suck out the nasty impurities that lurking and chillen in our pores.

Adovia Mineral Lift Serum Review

PR Sample

Adovia mineral lift serum

This isn’t your typical face serum. Most serums are liquid or gel-like. This one on the other hand is a creamy lightweight white cream substance.

Face serum

Adovia Mineral Serum is a semi cream base, but as you can see in the picture above, it glides as if it’s melting while moving. It’s not a greasy feeling at all and does not have a scent to it.

I’ve been using this twice a day, morning and night in my skincare routine all over my face and neck.

It will definitely stay in my skincare routine unless I find something better. So far, this hasnt broken me out so I’m very thankful for that!

Now on to my personal review of the Origins GinZing Refreshing eye cream.

I chose this as my perk point freebie from Sephora because I love Ginseng skin products and I love the smell of Ginseng skin products.  BUT I have NOT seen any results of improvement from using this other than the fact that I’m tricking my brain since I’m using an eye cream, that I’m doing something good for my skin.

When I wake up in the mornings, I do my normal routine of washing my face, then I apply this by dabbing a little under and around my eyes.  NO unpuffiness going on, on this face.  NO covering of the dark circles…. Same Ole, Same Ole.

The cream itself has tiny lil speckles of glimmer and that’s what is supposed to “Brighten” around your eyes, but again with the brain tricks…. It’s only an illusion.

The shelf life of this product is 6 months and that gets me wondering on the efficiency of the essential oils that are in this jar???

I do know that I wouldn’t purchase the full-sized 15 ml jar for $30.

This may work for some but I haven’t seen or felt that I would recommend this to any of my friends or anyone that I know.  But, that’s just me.

Have you tried Origins GinZing eye cream?  Tell me your results.
