Hai guys! Small update!

I hope everyone had a happy new year. I am now 33. Woo. :PARTY: My birthday was January 1st. I have posts to get up but I’m dealing with a seriously infected broken tooth. t.t There’s a bump the size of a cherry under it on the gums/jaw and it’s all swollen and hurts like a bitch. :SICK: The side of my face is hurting and my ear feels like it has an infection and my eye keeps going blurry. I need to get out to Chemawa but I haven’t been able to find a ride. So here’s to hoping I can find one by Monday. :FACEFLOOR: I need to be there before 8am. So needless to say posts will get up when they get up. I hope you guys are having a better new year!

FOTD: Kitten Shock

I don’t even know what is up with the lighting. They were all taken in the same time frame. I don’t know. haha I stayed up all night… cleaning. Errything looks nice now. I’m not tired. Which is surprising. Kai picked up the kids for the day. Someone is coming to pick up this extra long twin mattress we have that drives me crazy cause it’s longer than all the other twin beds. I don’t even know how we got it. It just showed up when they moved my moms stuff in. I have been editing photos because I have a bunch of reviews to write up. I need to do more swatches but I haven’t felt up to it. Fumiko turns 7 on the 31st and my birthday is on the 1st. Crazy man. Anyways. I wanted to do a purple look. So I did one. I want to do a challenge in January. 30 days of makeup. It’s hard for me to do it every day so a challenge indeed it shall be. We shall see how hard I fail. haha

Review: Oleavine Beauty Moisturizer + Rejuvenating Actives

press sample

Official description
Luxuriously moisturizing blend of skin rejuvenating botanicals rich in Omegas 3, 6, 7 & 9 combined with powerful actives to help lock in moisture while improving texture and tone. Featuring Plant Stem Cells, Vitamins A, B & C along with Hyaluronic Acid.

  • All Natural
  • Preservative Free
  • Allergy Friendly
  • Non-Greasy
  • Paraben Free

Where to buy
From Amazon – You get 1 fluid ounce for $39.99 USD. However right now it’s on sale for $19.95 USD.

Directions
Apply to clean skin on face, neck, and décolleté day or night. Can be used under makeup. To prime the airless pump and extend the pump head, twist the silver cap counterclockwise until you hear a click. This locks the airless pump head in place and ready for use. When storing or traveling with your moisturizer, turn the silver cap in the opposite direction to hide the pump head in the silver cap.

Packaging
This bottle is neat. It’s a clear plastic bottle with a silver rim and white pump top. However inside the clear bottle is a white bottle. You twist the silver rim at the top and the pump pops up and locks into place. It has pink gradient butterflies on the clear bottle with product and company information in black text.

Scent and formula
The scent is very light. It smells lightly of citrus. It just smells fresh. The scent doesn’t linger it disappears after it’s absorbed into the skin. It’s a lightweight cream formula. It’s white in color. It’s easily absorbed and is not oily at all but is moisturizing.

Ingredients
Water (Aqua), Organic Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Leaf Gel, Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Water, Aspalathus Linearis (Rooibos) Leaf Extract, Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernel Extract, Potassium Hydrolyzed (Oat) Protein, Sodium Hyaluronate (Hyaluronic Acid), Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed) Oil, Organic Cocas Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Prunus Dulcis (Almond) Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Esters, Organic Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Plukenetia Volubilis (Sachi Inchi) Oil, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Squalene (Olive) Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn) Oil, Organic Rosa Rubiginosa (Rose Hip Seed) Oil, Borago Officinalis (Borage) Oil, Vaccinium Macrocarpon (Cranberry) Oil, Punica Granatum (Pomegranate) Seed Oil, Cucurbita Pepo (Pumpkin) Seed Oil, Organic Linum Usitatissimum (Flax Seed) Oil, Astrocaryum (Murumuru) Seed Butter, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Butter, D-Alpha Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Ascorbic 2 – Glucoside (Vitamin C), Panthenol (Pro Vitamin B-5), Thioctic Acid (Alpha Lipoic), Retinyl Palmitate (Vitamin A), Argania Spinosa (Argan) Sprout Cell Extract, Glycerin (Kosher), Propanediol (Corn), Glyceryl Oleate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Allantoin, Caprylhydroxamic Acid and Caprylyl Glycol.

I’ve been using this moisturizer from Oleavine Beauty for about a couple of weeks and I really like it. It’s not oily on my skin and absorbs quickly and thoroughly. The scent is a light citrus smell and is not overpowering in any way and fades after it’s absorbed into the skin. Oleavine claims that it is All Natural, Preservative Free, Paraben Free, Petroleum Free, Pthalate Free, Sulfate Free, Silicone Free, Cruelty Free, Gluten Free, Allergy Friendly and Non-Greasy. It’s supposed to help lock in moisture and improve texture and tone of your skin. It has ingredients that help fight wrinkles, reduce inflammation and plump and smooth your skin. So what do I think? I had to reactions from using this moisturizer which is really great! I noticed that my skin is more supple and plump after using it and that the over all texture of my skin since I started using it has been a little smoother. My skin stayed moisturized without being oily or greasy which is a huge deal for me. Many moisturizers I try either don’t moisturize enough leaving my skin dull and dry or they make me a grease ball which is so gross. This was also very soothing. I’ve had issues with cystic acne lately and this last week was really bad. Normally it’s extremely painful and the whole area is red and inflamed. However after using this it wasn’t as red or inflamed and the discomfort was a little more bearable. I can’t attest to how this works on wrinkles or fine lines. I don’t have any I think it requires more usage than I’ve given it to see any results. I’ve been really pleased with this moisturizer and when I have the funds I’d like to continue using it! One more thing! One of the things I really like about this moisturizer is that they use little to no heat to create it, which means your ingredients are staying pretty true to form and not being altered by heat. Altering ingredients can change the way they work. They also provide a 90 day money back guarantee. So if you don’t like it you can return it with no questions asked. =] You can find Oleavine Beauty on Facebook.
