Valentia Night Revive Retinol Serum Review*

I am loving this Fall weather! Sometimes I wish we could skip over Winter and go straight to Spring lol. Today I am bringing you another review powered by BrandBacker. As you know I have been loving every Valentia skin care product that I've tried so far so let's see if I love this product too. *This review is my opinion after testing this product.

*Powereed By BrandBacker

I have never tried any products with retinol before so I was a little scared at first. I was not sure how my skin was going to react so I looked up what retinol is and how it would benefit my skin. Here are the main benefits and ingredients of this serum directly from the Valentia site:

Retinol (Vitamin A): This clinically proven antioxidant is a triple threat! It works at the cellular level to stop wrinkles from forming, manages acne breakouts, and even out skin discoloration. Retinol helps reverse the clock, for more youth looking and acting skin.
Vitamin C: An essential nutrient that boosts Retinol’s protective effects, guarding skin against nasty free radicals and environmental damage to prevent premature aging. 
Vitamin E: Specifically chosen for its superior moisture protection. Vitamin E floods the skin hydration, diminishing the drying effects of Retinol.
Squalane: Derived for pure olive oil, this nutrient-rich ingredient softens and conditions delicate skin. It further assists in mitigating the dryness caused by Retinol while reducing the appearance of fine lines. 

Short Term
- Conditions & nourishes skin 
- Manages breakouts
- More luminous complexion 

Long Term
- Evens skin discoloration
- Stimulates collagen production
- Diminishes fine lines & wrinkles 

This serum was something that I needed with my skincare routine. I try to use products with anti-aging benefits to keep me looking so young lol. I've been using this serum for about the past two weeks with my night time routine. I will say my skin looks so refreshed and clear the next morning. My skin likes this product and retinol apparently lol!  I love the packing and how it comes with a dropper so you don't use too much.

I use this serum every other night because I don't break out that much and it recommended to use only every 2-3 days until your skin adjusts. This is another hit from the Valentia line!

You can find more about this product and other Valentia products on AMAZON , directly on VALENTIA, and on their social media pages, INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK.

What are some of your favorite skincare products? Tried any with retinol? Comment below and let me know!

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.


(M411- Pointed Blender and M200-Deluxe Crease)
It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

September Favorites

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol! Today I am sharing my September Favorites with a special guest. My son has been wanting to film with me for a while so I decided to let him in on the video. Be prepared to laugh!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
