Valentine’s Day Last Minute Ideas: Beauty, Jewelry and More

Happy Valentine’s Day! If you have been in a relationship for a while and are no longer an amateur, you may be the type of person (like me) who likes to make “suggestions” for Valentine’s Day gifts. Or maybe you use Valentine’s Day as en excuse to treat yourself (also like me), a girlfriend or family member, but you can’t make up your mind. Here are some last minute  gift ideas for the beauty & fashion lover in your life (again- that might be you!), that  hopefully will inspire you.

Derma e Firming DMAE Eye Lift is a skincare essential!


I don’t about you, but I’m always searching for an affordable, natural eye cream that works. Fortunately, I was selected to test the derma e Firming DMAE Eye Lift! With this cold weather, it was perfect timing since my skin gets very dry. DermaeEyeCream

Before I get into my review, here is some background information about this California based company.

In 1984 Linda Miles, co-founder of derma e, stated that “One day, mainstream skincare formulas will look like the healthy formulas we make today.” At the time, people didn’t consider how their internal health affected their outward appearance. And, nobody understood that what you put on your skin matters too. However, derma e® pushed skincare forward in a new direction by fusing powerful vitamins and plants together with modern science, and the results are that derma e® built a passionate following in the natural products industry and beyond, always aspiring to make highly effective, premium skincare formulas but with cruelty-free green chemistry.

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).

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.

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).

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.
