Vampire Repellent Lip Balm ( Review )

Hi Loves ,

I’m excited to share the perfect lip balm for all seasons . All-Natural Lip Balm it is amazedly smooth on my lips , sweet , with all natural ingredients . In my honest opinion this is the best lips balm i have ever tried. It looks feels good with or without makeup and gives it a long lasting shine when I were it over my lipstick .

The lip balm has a sweet taste and did I say how smooth it makes your lips feel . I’m addicted I were it when I wake up and before I go to bed . My lips are always smooth with out that wrinkle chapped hurting feeling on my lips .

The Benefits of Using LipBomb Lip Balm

The skin on your lips is very thin and it has no oil glands, which makes it very fragile. Cold weather, the wind and the sun
can make lips dry out, shrink and even become painful. But applying a thin coat of high-definition LipBomb lip balm can help.

LipBomb is more than just another lip balm product. It’s a high-performance, protective gloss that is specifically formulated to cover the lips, lock in moisture and prevent dryness.
So it keeps your lips soft, healthy and comfortable. Our lip balm:

is 100 percent natural
has a pleasant flavor
has an appealing scent
moisturizes and conditions lips
soothes sore, chapped lips
protects lips against dry, cold or windy weather

Benefits From Coconut

I’am crazy for coconut I love coconut milk,coquto that is a drink puerto ricans make for the holidays with fresh coconut milk and Bacardi ,tembleque that is coconut custard in Spanish ,coconut water yummy and the meat is sweet and creamy consistency and a delishuois taste.

Coconut milk is extremely versatile in the kitchen. From breakfast to dinner and savory to sweet, coconut milk has a place in your diet. With lots of vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5, and B6 as well as iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Coconut milk makes an effective beauty product as also.

To pre coconut milk, crack open a coconut, place the water and the scooped-out flesh into a blender and mix until smooth. If you are using a packaged version of coconut milk, make sure it comes in a BPA-free can or a milk box. Aroy-D and Native Forest Organic package coconut milk in a BPA-free can and Coconut Dream is a popular boxed brand.

1. Substitute for Coffee Cream

Use coconut milk to replace the cream you pour into your morning cup of joe, and you’ll get a boost of energy not just from the caffeine but also from the electrolytes provided by the coconut milk itself. Coconut contains potassium, sodium, magnesium and chloride, all of which help to keep the body hydrated and properly functioning. What more could you ask for at the start of a busy work day?

2. Braise Meat

Coconut milk may not be the first ingredient you associate with chicken and meat, but it actually adds a sweet, delicious touch to the meal. Mix about ½ cup of coconut milk into the liquid of braising meat or chicken and watch as the milk absorbs the flavors of the dish and makes for a creamy, full-flavored sauce.

3. Be Calm and Drink Coconut Milk

Coconut milk contains 89 milligrams of magnesium per cup, which makes it a rich source of a mineral that helps to calm the nerves and maintain normal blood pressure. Magnesium blocks nerve cells from becoming overactive by virtue of becoming stimulated by calcium. Calm nerve cells reduce contraction of muscles and make you feel more relaxed. This is my favorite by the way .

4. Build Strong Bones (Without the Dairy)

Coconut milk is not a good source of calcium. It contains just over 38 milligrams of calcium per cup compared to regular milk’s 300 milligrams in the same serving size. But while it may not be able to give dairy a run for its money in terms of calcium, it is a rich source of phosphorus. With 240 milligrams of phosphorus per cup, coconut milk contributes to strong bones.

5. Moisturize Skin

Whether ingested or applied directly to the skin, coconut milk is helpful in hydrating the skin and keeping it soft and smooth. Its fat content locks in moisture. Simply apply a thin layer of coconut milk to a cleansed face, let it sit for 15 minutes, and then rinse clean. Pat dry to reveal supple, soft skin.

6. Fight Infection

Coconut milk contains a fatty acid called lauric acid, which is quite valuable to the human body. When it enters the body, lauric acid is converted to monolaurin, which is a compound that has antiviral and antibacterial properties. For this reason, coconut milk consumption could fight infections and viruses.

7. Control Weight

Because coconut milk contains saturated fats, it is often shunned by dieters as a fattening agent. However, because of its fiber content, coconut milk makes you feel fuller longer and, in moderation, can help to control weight.

8. Maintain Blood Sugar Levels

Coconut water is a source of manganese, which is vital for regulating blood sugar levels. One of manganese’s most important functions is to help metabolize glucose in the human body. Manganese is also essential for metabolism function, treating inflammation, preventing osteoporosis, alleviating PMS in women, aiding vitamin absorption and maintaining the health of the digestive track.

9. Remove Makeup

Mix 1 part coconut milk with 2 parts olive oil and use the concoction as a gentle way to remove eye makeup and moisturize skin at the same time. There is no need for harsh, alcohol-ridden chemicals to get rid of makeup around the most sensitive area of your face. Coconut milk does the trick just right!

10. Lower Cholesterol

Despite its saturated high fat content, coconut milk can actually help to reduce cholesterol levels if you are used to cooking with butter and dairy-based creams. The truth is, not all saturated fats are created equal. Coconut milk raises cholesterol levels, but its lauric acid boosts HDL (good) cholesterol, which improves the HDL-LDL (bad) cholesterol ratio. Choosing saturated fats, coconut milk is the best of the bunch. The fats in coconut milk are also easier for the body to break down and metabolize and contain healthy fats including omega 6 essential fatty acids. That is a good thing .

11. Prevent Wrinkles

Improve skin elasticity with the consumption or application of coconut milk due to its copper and vitamin C content. Copper and vitamin C maintain flexibility and elasticity of the skin and blood vessels, slowing the aging process of your skin and body.You here that ladies this is a very good tip*

12. Treat Sunburns

After a long day in the sun, it’s never a bad idea to continue the tropical theme, even in the form of a remedy. Apply a thin layer of cool coconut milk to the sunburned area and the coconut milk with soothe and moisturize the skin.

13. Get Baking

For those who have lactose intolerance or are opting for a more animal-friendly diet, try using coconut milk in place of milk in baked dessert recipes. While other nut milks on the market do a good job of replacing dairy milk, sometimes they have a watery consistency that does not to the dessert much justice.

14. Treat Arthritis

Coconut milk contains selenium, which is an antioxidant that relieves arthritis symptoms, and decreases the risk of joint inflammation.

15. Condition Hair

Benefit from the nutrients and fats in coconut milk with a hair treatment. Massage coconut milk into your scalp and use your fingers to brush the milk through hair strands. Once covering your hair and scalp, wrap your hair in a towel and let the coconut milk sit for an hour or two. The longer it sits, the more deeply the moisturizing and strengthening effects of coconut milk will penetrate. You could also warm the milk up prior to application to jump start the stimulation of nutrients.

Drinking Almond Milk Has Many Benitfites

Almond Milk: Good for Skin*

Almond milk is a has many Benitfites It reduces the risk of diabetes and many hart diseases. It also plays an important role in weight management and energy production. One of its many roles is in promoting healthier and younger looking skin*

Almond Milk as an Antioxidant

Almond milk is an excellent source of vitamin E, a known antioxidant. Antioxidants protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals alter cell genetic code, resulting to mutated proteins. When mutation happens, cancer may develop.

Sun exposure and exposure to environmental and man-made pollutants are harmful to the skin; vitamin E acts as a shield by protecting the skin from these harsh elements. Daily skin application of vitamin E-enriched almond milk lotions and creams before sun exposure helps minimize skin damage.

Vitamin E also has natural healing properties. Almond milk can effectively treat sunburn and other minor burns.

Almond Milk has Anti-Aging Qualities
Aging ,Sun exposure ,wind can damage the skin; it contributes to collagen and elastin .Collagen and elastin are important substances that give the skin its elasticity and firmness. The collagen and elastin supply of the skin are uncontrollable after prolonged exposure to free .As you get older, your body is unable to replenish moisture supply; this is the primary cause of wrinkles, fine lines and other skin blemishes.

Vitamin E, present in almond milk, protects the skin from the harmful effects of free radicals; this makes the skin healthy and younger-looking.

Almond milk, in the form of topical solutions, is an excellent treatment for dry, flaky skin. Well-moisturized skin prevents premature aging.

Almond Milk Hydrates the Skin

One of the common skin problems–that leads to other problems–is dry skin. Vitamin B2, also known as riboflavin is found in abundance in almond milk. It helps the tissues of the skin, hair and nails to use oxygen. Riboflavin also assists in synthesizing tryptophan—an amino acid—and producing niacin in the process. Niacin, also referred to as vitamin B3, aids in circulation. The skin benefits greatly from proper circulation. Niacin also helps in hydrating the skin by trapping moisture in the cells.

Almond Milk’s Role in Oil Regulation

Some common skin problems, such as acne, blackheads and whiteheads, are caused by dirt and oil trapped in the pores of the skin. Almond milk contains essential fatty acids. They are important in controlling the amount of oil secreted by the sebaceous glands.

Almond milk isavailable as a beverage or as a component of several personal care products. Regardless of how it is consumed, almond milk is beneficial in so many ways.

SMASH BOX bb cream : REVIEW

Smash box bb cream stands for Blemish Balm Cream. The was created in Germany then spread out through Asia, Japan china . bb creams is a hot products for Asians.

bb creams have been around a long time , all it is just a cream with a foundation.

I purchased mine at sophora for 40.00 in color medium. Medium was a good choice since i have been applying self tanner all over my body now my face looks tan also .

The color covers well it has a thick constancy. When first applied the finish look is smooth even tone yet very light sheer finish . After two hours or so it is mattifing and set in my creases not happy about that.

In my honest opinion this product is overrated and for $40.00 plus tax that is a bit steep for what the product does . After this one finishes i don’t plan to buy another smash box bb cream.

However i will buy another brand until i find the right one that is perfect for my skin.

Pros of smash box bb cream he right one that is for my skin .
thick consistency
bendable
sheer
pigmented
creamy
SPF 35
five shades selection
everyday or just around the house foundation
were under foundation or just bb cream

Cons of smash box bb cream
drys to matte
to expensive
sets in creases
not good for combination skin
does not moisten my skin
