OZ Naturals Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel

Hi everyone! I hope that all is well with you! As you already know from my previous reviews, I love OZ Naturals Skincare (link to previous review https://chicprettyfun.com/2015/10/19/oz-naturals-broad-spectrum-tinted-sunscreen-spf-30/).  For those of you who do not know much about the OZ Naturals company, their mission is to bring you skincare products that are  “anti-aging, natural ingredients, and utilizing the latest technology to formulate the highest quality skin care products on the market” as stated in the About Us page on their website (http://www.oznaturals.com/info/About_Us). As a pet owner, I also love that all OZ Natural products are cruelty free. As you may already know, I only review products that I believe in, I can tell you that OZ Naturals skincare products deliver what they promise and are also affordable.

Now onto my review of the Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel. As someone who has suffered from dark under eye circles since childhood, I’ve used a wide variety of skincare products over the years hoping to minimize their appearance, often with disappointing results. So when I was chosen by OZ Naturals to review the Matrix 6 Mega Bright Eye Gel, I jumped at the opportunity to try it! After testing this product for over a week I can tell you that it works! As with the other OZ Natural skincare products I have tried, I saw immediate results after just a few days. This eye gel contains the following ingredients: a Matrixyl Synthe’6 (a compound that regulates cell activity and collagen tissue remodeling) Haloxyl (reduces dark circles/anti-inflammatory), Caffeine (reduces puffiness), Hyaluronic Acid and Apple Stem Cells (both anti-aging).

Love fall but hate dry skin? derma e is here to save the day!

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fun Halloween! So far I’ve been enjoying the fall season, however I have a confession to make. While I look forward to and love everything about this season- the foliage, Halloween, candy, pumpkin spice lattes (well, anything pumpkin spice for that matter)- I absolutely despise the weather! People are often shocked when I share this, but what they don’t understand is that every day I have to deal with a very stressful condition…dry skin!!!  While it was a blessing as a teenager (I never had  a pimple), as I age and begin to experience some wrinkles, my skin keeps getting drier. Therefore I’m always searching for the perfect day cream that will hydrate my skin and help me enjoy the fall season. Well, it looks like I finally found it! If you have the same love/hate relationship with Fall that I do, your stress ends today! The Hydrating Day Cream by derma e Natural Skincare is the solution to all your Fall dry skin problems.

OZ Naturals Broad Spectrum Tinted Sunscreen SPF 30

Hello beautiful readers! I hope this new post finds you all well!

I received a free sample of the OZ Naturals Tinted Moisturizer in exchange for an honest review. OZ Naturals is a skincare brand that I love. I’ve tried and reviewed other products before (see previous post on the OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol Serum) and have been very happy with the results.

Since I love to wear tinted moisturizer,  I thought this would be a great opportunity to try a product that I could easily incorporate into my skin regimen. Tinted sunscreen can be versatile and it can eliminate some steps in your daily makeup routine if you are looking to save some time.  During the cold months you can use it as a base for your makeup, while moisturizing your skin at the same time. In the summer, it can work alone – during the summer months my everyday makeup is usually just tinted moisturizer and bronzer.

Pink is the new black! Here are 10 things you can do this month to support Pink October.

Pink October is here! Every year during the month of October many organizations raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I often find myself wondering what I can do to show my support. Many of us know someone who is affected by this disease, whether a relative, friend, co-worker or acquaintance. Even if we do not, as women we should stand united in the fight against breast cancer. According to http://www.breastcancer.org, 12% of women (one in eight) will develop breast cancer in the U.S. over the course of their lifetime. If like me, you are wondering how you can get involved, here are some ways you can show support (and get some fun makeup and accessories in the process).

Couture Fashion Week New York, Spring 2016

Fashion Show 8

This September I had the pleasure of attending Couture Fashion Week New York , in New York City. The show was fantastic, I really enjoyed the experience (and front row seats!). The show featured two prominent international couture designers, whose gowns have been worn by beauty pageant contestants around the world. The first collection was designed by renowned Dominican designer Lourdes Atencio. Overall, her Spring 2016 collection was fun and romantic. While the first few looks did not impress me, the collection improved for me as the show went on. Many of her pieces had a vintage vibe, and some evoked the 60s and 70s. I would have liked to see more of that since I love those eras. Some gowns also had a metallic fabric that looked like “liquid satin”,  which captured the light on the runway in an interesting way. While I liked many of the designs individually, I thought the collection could have been more cohesive.

Fashion Show 6
This was the opening design. I love crop top and skirt sets, and I like green, however I did not love this combination.

The Magic of OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol Serum

OZ Naturals has developed a truly magical retinol serum. As you may already know, retinol is an essential ingredient in any anti-aging skincare product. Retinol works by prompting the skin to make more collagen and it helps exfoliate your skin by removing dead cells (source: www.webmd.com/beauty/skin-glow-13/anti-aging-routine).

cpf OZNaturalscpfOZNaturals2

I received a sample of this product to test and so far I have seen amazing results. While I always prided myself in having inherited good skin (thanks mom!), I have always known how important it is to use great skincare products to help prevent wrinkles. Furthermore, my dry skin has only gotten dryer over the years and I have my fair share of wrinkles and expression lines.

Well, so far I’ve seen amazing results! After applying the OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol Serum daily, my skin is softer, more hydrated and it has helped visibly reduce my expressions lines and wrinkles. Also, as someone with sensitive skin, I have not had any allergic reactions or redness. I attribute that to the fact that this serum is also 99.9% natural. Need I say more? OZ Naturals 2.5% Retinol Serum guarantees great results for a fraction of the price of other much more expensive serums.

Additional Product Facts:

  • Made in the U.S.A            ‘
  •  Cruelty Free
  • Paraben Free
  •  Safe for all skin types
  • Must apply sunscreen to avoid possible hyper pigmentation
  • Retails on Amazon for 24.99 USD

They’re so affordable, it’s too tempting! I’ve used e.l.f. products before, so I decided to try some new ones this time around. Here is a list of what I purchased:
