Skin Care Products Every Woman Should Own- Vitamin C

I’m always afraid to walk into the liquor store because, although I love wine, I really hate being asked for ID. I hate being asked for it even more when, often times, I’m not carrying a piece of it on me and have dashed from our vehicle with only cash in hand. Although I am nearly 30 years old, I am constantly told that I’m far too young to have children or asked for my skin secrets because I don’t have any blemishes. I’m not tooting my own horn here but simply stating what qualifies me to make a post regarding a few facial secrets. I’m often complimented on my skin and, although I never thought much of it before, I’m now desperately trying to cling to my youth like a starving man wrestling for a turkey leg.

I am routinely sent free products to review, such as the Oz Naturals Facial Toner or the Tangerine Lilly Vitamin C Serum, and don’t always put a ton of stock into what’s passing through the vanity at any given time. I can’t stop to enjoy any one thing for a long period of time before the next, similar product arrives at the door. However, with how often vitamin c is discussed in the media, on other blogs or on television, I have used many creams and serums of this nature. These are two that I’ve stuck with, each having their own unique properties and value, as well as being affordable, easy to use and effective. I want their collagen stimulation and I enjoy the healthy “glow” that I’ve noticed since bringing them on to my age fighting team;

Springtime Self Tanner

I’m probably about as pasty as they come- you know you’ve got serious pale girl problems when the lightest shade of foundation is too dark, okay? I’m not even an “ivory”, I’m more a “corpse white” but, sadly, vampires don’t have a make up line so I’m left to literally mix white Halloween make up with a foundation so my face matches the rest of my body when I go out. I do, however, tan a fantastic shade of brown and was lucky enough to pass this on to each of my seasonally pasty children.

10176275_10154006684735184_1029367711945974673_n

Not a bad colour for someone who’s normally as white as a ghost.

This is hard work, however, and I’m a mother of four now- if I had time to tan, I would use it to catch up on the Mountains of Madness aka my light and dark laundry pile. I’ll either walk around looking gaunt or I’ve got to go with a self tanner. I would much rather use a sunless tanning method, as I’m not capable of investing hours in the sun to tan naturally and I don’t want to use tanning beds, but I don’t like slathering my entire body in a chemical soup in order to not look like my brand of sunblock is called roof.
Luckily, I was sent a bottle of Thermalabs organic self tanner free for review and discovered that not all sunless tanning products on the market are made up of complete garbage. I will note, however, that “parfum” is included on the label and that is the last thing that I want to see included when I’m buying something for the organic attributes. I would rather it had no scent, or even a somewhat unpleasant one, than include synthetic ones and I was disappointed to see that.
I’ve used a few different sunless tanning options and I’ve ended up every colour from orange to Obama- I can honestly say that Thermalabs was one of the best self tanners and I’ve taken a billion photos to try to get a decent shot. I can’t really capture the bronzed brown of my hand now but, just note, this colour is more brown in person than gold or orange;

self tanner, sunless tanning, best self tanning products, organic tanner

Clearly, there’s a massive difference and I intentionally did only the top of one of my hands because this was the easiest way to show a before and after for you. That was two thin coats and, looking back, one would have sufficed but I worried that I had washed some of it off so I applied a second. I’m going to have to do my whole body now, which the bottle will cover without issue, and I’m going to be darker than I have in years. We’ll have to see how this goes.

All in all, Thermalabs provides a product that contains more natural ingredients than any other on the market, it’s safe for all skin types and the application was not streaky or difficult in any way. If you’re someone who invests in these types of products on a regular basis, I would definitely recommend checking this one out. I like the shimmer of the brown, as it looks more sun-kissed than Kardashian-kissed and doesn’t go overboard with bronzers. The tanner dries fairly quickly, smells less offensive than any other tanner that I have used in the past, and they sell it with a money back guarantee. I have no complaints, with the exception of the “parfum” addition, and I will leave you with these words of advice; If you can’t tone it, tan it.

Anthro Desk- My Comfy Desk

Hey all! This is what I look like at this exact moment;


standing desk, anthrodesk, adjustable laptop deskPardon my messy, post-workout look but I had to write this while resting and it came in very handy that I have the anthro desk to use while I do it.

I have a hard time resting a laptop on my body and just lounging, as I have a back injury and my complete right side is always sore (especially after a work out or during the winter) so I try to keep my posture perfect and my seating comfortable whenever possible. As a result, I have to work at a desk most of the time and it’s a pain that I’m not able to write while also enjoying my family’s company. I was recently sent this handy package from Anthrodesk, in exchange for an honest review, and that has rectified this problem for me.  It’s a portable, economic substitute for a standing desk that I can take absolutely anywhere. What I really like about it is that it folds completely down, to barely bigger than a book (it’s only 4lbs) and I can tuck it neatly away when not in use. In my small space, that’s ideal and far more convenient than a permanent piece of furniture.
Here are some of the positions that can be achieved with the anthro desk;

de2543f9c172b65153bddb0cb32eedc19fc4c2ed

I did find that the massive variety of possibilities, although great, was a bit of a pain for me where set up is concerned. It’s incredibly easy to use, however, and the angles are achieved with the click of a button instead of having to unscrew and tighten anything. I use it primarily for blogging but my son has stolen it a couple of times to read while laying on the floor. This way his book or tablet is propped up and he can have a snack after school, busying his hands with that instead of having to hold onto his reading material.

I have abandoned my clunky desk for the time being, as I love being able to work in whatever position is comfortable and necessary within the space that I have- If you think you might as well, you can find the anthro desk on Amazon.com OR .ca (they ship to Canada!) and scoop one for yourself.

Garcinia Cambogia with green coffee bean.

As some readers may know, I have written a garcinia cambogia review previously, found here, and did not have the best luck with the product.

I was recently sent a bottle of GloryFeel’s brand free to review, which I have used my affiliate link to connect you to further down in this post, and decided that it couldn’t hurt to add the weight loss supplement to my daily regiment. I figured it would be much the same as last time but accepted the opportunity anyway, as there’s no risk to trying these- they’re natural, GMO-free and don’t include any fillers, cholesterol, fat, dairy, sugar, gluten, soy, wheat, peanuts or shellfish. I’m not worried about any of those ingredients but the GMO-free, U.S. made, FDA inspected qualities of the GloryFeel brand are a definite plus for me. Often times, I worry about things coming from overseas where I have no real idea of the authenticity of the ingredients, how things are regulated and how safe the product itself would be.

weight loss pill, diet pill, miracle pill, green coffee beans

With my mind at ease, I have been taking the supplement for just over a week now and it has added green coffee bean extract, potassium and black pepper (the last two are said to be for absorption). Now, I’m sure you’ve probably seen the online buzz surrounding garcinia cambogia but I was more intrigued by the green coffee bean, which is a controversial, widely used ingredient that’s been marketed as a weight loss supplement since the early 2000s. Dr. Oz, of whom I am not the biggest fan, supports this even under FTC scrutiny and reportedly gives this to his family members. Green coffee bean has also been a Health Ingredients Europe conference award winner for Best Ingredient and there are no known side effects relating to its usage. That’s enough to perk my interest!
I started the Isagenix program a week before adding the garcinia cambogia supplement and have been drinking plenty of water but, otherwise, have not changed my lifestyle and exercise routine whatsoever. It has been only dietary additions, yet I do still enjoy a glass of wine or a snack when I want one. Regardless, I have noticed dramatic results; In less than two weeks I am down 9 1/2lbs! I’m thrilled.

I lost 3.2lbs in the first week and the rest of it came off during the second, with the addition of the garcinia cambogia. I didn’t think to measure my waist line because I had not considered that there may be a noticeable change so quickly but my tummy is smaller and my upper thighs are definitely shrinking as well!
I do think Isagenix played a role but GloryFeel’s Carcinia Green Coffee has helped make the journey so much easier for me and I am getting faster results than what can be expected on average with the program. I am a big eater, especially for a lady of my size/stature, and struggle with having only a shake for a meal as part of the plan. I’ve found that the supplement, as noted with previous use, helps suppress my appetite a great deal. I don’t feel hungry and, therefore, don’t have slip ups and “cheat” like I was doing before I started taking the pills on a daily basis. My husband has also noted that I haven’t been “hangry” (his term for being hungry and angry about it, which has happened to me since I was a little girl) at all since starting.

I can genuinely say that this product is working for me, keeping me energized and feeling full. My weight is down, my mood is great and I’m beyond excited about being able to drop almost 10lbs in two weeks. I’ve been struggling to do that for a year now. Clearly, this was far more effective than other brands that I have tried.

Sadly, they do not ship to Canada on a regular basis so my readers from the States are the only ones able to take advantage of this handy weight loss pill for the time being.

Probiotics- SUPERFOOD!

I am so excited about this review, as this is a product that I am truly in love with, interested in and I know I will continue to use it on a daily basis.
We all heard about the benefits of probiotics, right? Or at least you know they’re good for you- but do you know how good for you they actually are? Miessence InLiven Probiotic Superfood, which I was provided at no cost in exchange for an honest review, is genuinely one of the best products that you can get on the market if upping the intake is your goal. You can’t really know exactly what you’re getting within a serving of food so go with a straight source. Forget Jamie Lee Curtis and her yogurt/poop talks!

quickmeme.com

quickmeme.com

Probiotics are healthy bacteria and yeasts that assist with digestive health, as well as slew of other bodily issues and functions, as that silver fox on TV told us. There are various types that are better than others for specific problems, although Miessence InLiven Probiotic Superfood actually covers all 13 strains of the Lactobacillus family, is certified organic and the bacteria used is produced from fruits and vegetables. Did you know that some suppliers fast-track this step in fecal matter? So, Jamie Lee, maybe we ought to have a poop talk after all.

This is also safe for babies and you can give 1/4 teaspoon to children, typically started around the age of two but my youngest is a year and a half and she started on hers this past couple of weeks. It assists with creating good gut flora, which ups your immune system, so I figured it was practical to start giving her probiotics with all of the ridiculous measles hype running rampant. Grown men at my husband’s workplace are running in to receive the live attenuated virus vaccines and, although I’m not worried about the virus, Chicky is a bit young to have it just now. In order to give their little immune systems an added boost, I have started mixing probiotics in with a small amount of fresh squeezed orange juice. This is a treat for my children so we have no problem getting either of the girls to take them. I am also happy to report that we are very rarely sick in this household and I attribute that, in part, to our regular use of probiotics.

It’s fantastic for babies or if you’re having a baby as well, due to the fact that researchers have found that women who took probiotics during pregnancy had a 30% reduction in the instance of giving birth to a child who would suffer from eczema, an early warning sign for allergies. More on that can be read here.

If you’re attempting to lose weight, Stanford University came out with a study that suggests one benefit of probiotics is that they’re responsible for assisting in lowering waist circumference in postpartum women. The study was reported by the Huffington Post, here. You can’t see this but that point itself is causing me to happy dance as I type.

DSCF8462

As you can see by the consistency, it’s fairly easy to mix in with any food or liquid. I take mine with my morning shake or any beverage throughout the day. I take 3tsp daily and, although it doesn’t look lovely- it is a bacteria, after all- I truly can’t taste anything when I take them.

Basically- probiotics are good for your immune system, digestive system, urinary health, women’s health, it’s great if you’re pregnant, not pregnant or maybe you just look a wee bit pregnant (like me). These healthy, little bacteria truly put the “super” in Miessence InLiven Probiotic Superfood and I suggest you get some.

Sunscreen- For Skiing or Swimming

It’s winter time now and, when I say “winter time”, I mean that you can’t see the ground where I live. Ever. For around 3 months straight. During these months, product reviews give me something to pass my time while cooped up- this one came as a result of a free product and it may contain affiliate links.

I live in Canada so it’s snowing like a mofo outside but I at least get to bust out all kinds of boots. Short ones, high ones and super clunky crappola footwear for when the snow has reached a FML depth that vertically challenged individuals, like myself, have trouble slugging through.

photo-1416838375725-e834a83f62b7

I don’t often don the big, proper winter boots because I choose to boycott the season by passionately displaying displeasure through coffee drinking and blanketed couch snuggling.

coffee-505190_1280

That being said, once in a while I’m required to leave my cave home in order to attend pre-planned appointments, such as the recent eye test that I went to. Thankfully, my eye sight is fine (which I expected) but I found out that I have very little pigment left in the back of my eye. This explains why they’re already becoming lighter before I have even hit 30. I used to have deep blue eyes, which changed to a lighter blue in my younger years, then blue-green in my teens and they have turned a pale, light green this past six months. I figured it was genetic, as my grandmother’s, mother’s and uncles’ eyes have lightened up in their latter years but it turns out that we may all be losing pigment sooner than an average person. The solution? Protect what little pigment I have left by way of polarized, super sexy Versace sunglasses through my insurance company! Woot woot! I have to wear them every single time I’m in the sunlight because the sun is pigment’s enemy.
As a super pale person of British heritage, it’s not like the sun and I were great buddies to begin with.

Year round, I like to protect my skin from its rays and to make sure my wee ones have similar protection while outside. Sunscreen is necessary year round, even though it’s not commonly thought of during this chilly season. Did you know that the sun is actually closer to the earth during the winter while, at the same time, the ozone layer is actually at its thinnest? It’s true! The National Science Foundation Polar Programs UV Monitoring Network will tell you as much- so we’re actually at an increased risk for UV exposure, especially if you’re a winter sports enthusiast. According to skincancer.org, anyone hitting the slopes may want to remember; “Higher altitude means increased risk of sun-induced skin damage, since UV radiation exposure increases 4 to 5 percent with every 1,000 feet above sea level. At an altitude of 9,000 to 10,000 feet, UV radiation may be 35 to 45 percent more intense than at sea level. In addition, snow reflects up to 80 percent of the UV light from the sun, meaning that you are often hit by the same rays twice. This only increases the risk for damage.”

When heading out skiing or beaching, the above pictured is a new favourite for our skincare. The Sun ‘N’ Fun description reads that this;

  • Chemical free, non toxic, not greasy, no white cast, EWG Rating 1.
  • Natural with Organic ingredients, Zinc 20%
  • Contains fresh and inviting (natural) scent of marshmallow & chocolate, that kids love
  • Can be used by kids and adults alike
  • moisturizing with antioxidants

suncreen sun protection

The 1 rating means that this sunscreen has the lowest hazard rating possible, and when 75% of sunscreens and 90% of SPF moisturizers tested in the Environmental Working Group’s “2013 Guide to Safer Sunscreens” were found unsafe or ineffective, that’s a major plus. We typically use my homemade sunscreen for that reason but this one does appear to contain a fairly comprehensive ingredient list. It also includes the antioxidant tocopherol (from soy), which enhances sun damage protection.

When they say that it smells of marshmallow and chocolate, it smells EXACTLY like that and Peanut loved it. My husband loathes sunscreen and hates wearing it but he readily agreed to wear this one whenever asked as a result of the scent. He said, “I would be a walking dessert” and then many suggestive comments, full of innuendo followed. Men. Heh.

However, it is pretty chilly and curling up with him sounds fairly fantastic right about now so I will leave you to contemplate lying on a beach while I go and cuddle up in our bed. ‘Til next time.

Perfect Threads Online Clothing Shop

One of the best online clothing stores that I have come across has been Perfect Threads, the company that sponsored this review.  As a mother, it’s not always easy for me to get out in the dead of winter, shopping for myself or the kids with all of them in tow. Sometimes, in order to avoid a fiasco in a store, I prefer to shop from the comfort of my home. It’s not always affordable to do, however, and that’s where second-hand clothing stores like Perfect Threads come in.

Here, you can find a wide variety of used clothing online, including kids clothes, bargain clothing lots and women’s fashion. They’re close (to me), they’re affordable and they support area communities with fund-raising drives within the GTA. Anyone who wishes to start a drive with Perfect Threads is able to contact their offices via e-mail at info@PerfectThreads.ca and let them know your cause, your deadline and the amount of money that you’re hoping to raise. They will create a custom campaign for you, coordinating plans in order to help you reach your charitable goals. They work with area schools, religious groups, sports teams and other social programs, then arrange to pick up their donations and pay you based upon weight obtained. This, on its own, greatly encouraged me to stick by the company but take a look at some of the items that I obtained for less than $25 in TOTAL;

Online Clothing Stores

This great coat was one of my finds and it came with the plastic attachment for tags still attached. I was shocked by the like-new quality of the item, looking as though it was never previously worn, and I’ve got to say I completely love it. I took it out in bitter cold (I’m from Canada, that to us is -15 kind of weather) and it stood up well. I like the versatility  of the collar because, like any girl knows, sometimes you just  have to hide a cold nose from a winter wind;

That feature was great, not to mention the belted waist and all of the pockets! For $10, I made the smartest buy of the year.

When doing some online shopping for clothing, you can never really tell whether or not the items are going to arrive true to size but, using a Canadian retailer, I knew that the outfits I ordered for my girls would fit them. As you can see, they look adorable and just loved their dresses. Pardon the one photo, it was taken during a family get-together that Peanut really wanted to sport her Elmo dress for so I took the opportunity to shoot it then.

The middle picture above is the detailing from the sweater that I ordered from Perfect Threads. Sadly, my bust size made the shirt itself slightly short but I absolutely love the uniqueness of the piece. This picture doesn’t even do the beaded flowers justice and one of my favourite things about going thrift shopping is that these types of stores have the neatest clothing.

Service from Perfect Threads comes with guarantees that most online retailers don’t, or even local shops that sell used clothing and I learned very quickly how much customer service can matter. I initially ordered a few different shirts from the store, choosing mediums, and was accidentally sent smalls. I let the company know of the dilemma, expecting the standard response of “You can ship it back to us and we’ll exchange it, then reimburse you” or something along those lines, which is always a huge pain in the butt. As soon as I got the email back, I was shocked to discover that I was quickly provided with a store credit to rectify the situation and asked to donate the other items to a local charity shop. No fuss, fast service and great communication!

If you want to check out the store for yourself, please visit their Facebook page here and their website here. If you happen to place an order, I would truly appreciate you adding alysia@mydomesticdish.com to the comments box because referrals generate a store credit and you get a $10 credit for doing so! Be sure you pass on the word to friends and have them use your email address if they opt to make a purchase. This only counts for new customers, of course. Any order over $50 qualifies for free shipping- and that includes Canada! As a Canuck, I was overjoyed at this because most of the free shipping promises are for United States residence only but theirs applies to both countries. Bonus.
Happy shopping!

GlassesShop- and a discount for all!

I’m thinking my general theme for this past fortnight should be “eyes”.

As mentioned in my last post about the dragon contact lenses, I have received quite a few products that focus on the eye area lately, be those glasses, make up, creams or contacts. I’m not sure if the universe is attempting to force the realization upon me that I’m aging (thanks, universe-  duly noted), that my eyes need some TLC, or what exactly is up but this post is no exception. Brought to you, and me, by GlassesShop.com, I received the product at no cost in order to facilitate this review.
What’s cool about this particular post though, is that it involves a sweet discount code for all of my readers and my glasses are pink!

Glasses Shop Review

As you can see, these specs are pretty out there. That’s exactly what I was going for when I chose them from the site and, if they’re  your cup of tea too, then you can find the product page here. At $20 a pop, they’re fantastic, discount eyeglasses and you can’t really go wrong. The absolute best part of dealing with Glasses Shop, on top of that pricing, is the fact that single vision prescription lenses are included FOR FREE, along with their anti-scratch coating.

I had an eye appointment last week and discovered that I have so little pigment in the back of my eye that it explains why I am already losing colour in them. My eyesight is perfect but the eye itself is probably going to become a little albino-looking in the years to come. Fine with me, as I happen to think the whole vampire look is rather sexy. Well, some anyway;

In all seriousness though, I have to protect the pigment that I have left with polarized sunglasses, whenever outside, all year round (I immediately wanted to start singing Sunglasses at Night by Cory Hart when told this),and that can be pretty expensive. It adds up when, as any person might, I want to buy a few different options for those days when I feel I need a change. I can’t do that if my glasses cost $300+ a piece; which, according to the insurance claim that I just put through for my sunglasses, would still be kinder pricing than I recently received.

Expensive Glasses Meme

I mean, let’s face it, some outfits pull together nicely with something so loud and then different occasions may require a more subtle, less distracting frame. I love being able to change things up once in a while and, even if I went with the necessary polarized pair, or even a transitioning one, Glasses Shop beats out my local retailers’ pricing by a mile. I thought that was a fantastic bonus.

Speaking of bonuses, please use the discount code AlysiaX20 to receive a further 20% off on the website. I’m not an affiliate of Glasses Shop, just a lady who likes to pass on some savings when possible. Enjoy!

Dragon Eyes Creepy Contact Lenses

It seems like I’m receiving more products to do with eyes, eye-wear and cosmetic eye changes lately. I can’t say that I’m complaining though, as they are the only feature that I like on my hot mess of a head. I would like to thank Spooky Eyes for sending me these aqua dragon contact lenses free of charge, in order to facilitate this review.

Creepy, aren’t they?!


contact lenses aqua dragonI tried to make my eyes the main focus in this, so pardon my lack of eyebrows but I didn’t opt to dig them out or draw them back in after covering everything with powder, It’s a shame that I wasn’t sent vampire or zombie contact lenses, as I could have done the whole shebang with very little make up. My lack of sunshine does wonders for my skin but very little for its pallor. I own it.

I put in my dragon eyes contact lenses while my husband was out with the kids so that I could get some pictures without an audience, or without a toddler hand in the frame. They like to ruin every one of my blog pictures with the world’s cutest photobombs. Well, when they got home I just went to greet everyone like normal and was met with mass hysteria, crying and panicked inquiries like, “Mummyyyy!! Why your eyes look like monsters?!

Clearly, they did the job.

dscf6959Who wouldn’t want to be greeted at the door by these peepers?!

I did find that these contact lenses, like the Hulk Eyes lenses that I reviewed for Spooky Eyes previously, felt slightly thicker than other coloured pairs that I have worn. They were, however, easier to put in. I’m not sure if that was the lens itself or it was simply my lucky day but application was very simple. I also found that they were worn for a longer period of time than the others, without my eye drying too badly.
What was weird about these dragon eyes lenses was the fact that the black slit turned around on its own free will. This did add to the creepy aspect of things, as I was google-eyed half the time, but they did not stay put as they should have.

I would recommend Spooky Eyes contact lenses for any short period of wear but, for longer periods of time, I suggest purchasing some Visine for every couple of hours. If you like the Aqua Dragon look, you can find the product page here.

Jeunesse Instantly Ageless Review and Giveaway!

I was recently approached by a consultant for Instantly Ageless serum by Jeunesse and I, approaching my 30’s in the next couple of years, decided that it couldn’t hurt to demo a product that is supposed to work within just a few minutes of using it. Yeah, right- right?

Instantly ageless is a microcream that uses peptides to basically give a lady some botox without all of the gross needles. Botox, in cream form? Again, yeah right. I figured, with such seemingly outlandish claims, the worst case scenario would be that I got to write a scathing review about marketing towards the hopeless feeling we all have about in regards to our age lines. The best case scenario would be that my dark circles faded a bit, making me look less like a corpse and more like a very tired blood transfusion patient. I had high hopes people, high hopes.
‘Lo and behold, I’ve been pleasantly surprised absolutely freakin’ blown away by this stuff! Holy crappola it actually works! More than just works, it does so incredibly fast and exceptionally well.

Within seconds of using the cream, I could feel it start tightening and changing my eye contour. It’s not pleasant, with a stretching sensation that does not hurt but is noticeable enough that I wondered whether or not I would have to deal with it all day. It does fade within a few minutes, although the results last 8+ hours. Only a tiny amount is required to get the job done but do make sure that enough is applied for adequate coverage, or else the spots that were missed end up looking more dramatic when the rest of the area is wrinkle-free.

I couldn’t take a good picture of my eyeball so I used my mother’s. These are not retouched to make the effects more dramatic. I’m not that talented in the photo editing department, believe me. These were taken with the same model, on the same couch, in front of the same window and on the same day;

FotorCreated

I couldn’t even believe the results. The picture was taken almost immediately after application and you can see that the cream is actually still wet underneath her eye. The results became more dramatic about two minutes after this, only my toddler was desperate to have her hair braided and wouldn’t let up about it so the light was not as good for the second round of pictures. Still, I assume you can see the difference between the two eyes- and what a difference it was!

One lucky reader will receive 3 vials of Instantly Ageless Serum by Jeunesse. This giveaway will run for two weeks, ending on January 28th and be open to residents of Canada and the US. I can’t say enough about the effectiveness of the product and want to give a big shout out to our sponsor, Clark, for being generous with her products and sponsoring this giveaway. Be sure to check out her pages listed below and, for those of you not in the US (where you can order from the site), please get in touch with Clark via her Facebook page here in order to make sure you can get your hands on this mind-blowing product. Good luck!
