Gosh -shock absorbing I phone 5 case review

As a mom, I seem to have issues with phones and their safety! That being said..when the opportunity to review a phone case came up...I was on board!

The packaging of this GOSH shock absorbing phone case is very nice. It immediately gave it credibility and it made me feel like I got a huge deal! It was sleek and almost invisible protection.

Love that the screen protector is antibacterial. Loved that it was so lightweight! The case I am currently using is very bulky and is like carrying a brick around BUT after a year of no accidents...I am not complaining!

Anyway, I unboxes  this to find that it's featherlight and has a three step installation process I thought this was odd at first but liked it since stretching cases and snapping my phone into cases isn't always easy. The case actually splits into three sections that snap together to form the protective case. So...I unboxed it and attached it to my phone. Easy enough! It isn't a ton of support but I can see how it alleviates shock when the phone lands on the ground.
See. three pieces to the case make it a snap to attach!
Next, I decide it's time to make a video displaying how easy it is to use the case when...BAM! In the middle of reviewing it...the case snaps in half 😩 Not sure if it's considered kid proof if I can't operate it lol! Also not sure it's the right protection for me.

So, end of the day review...

On budget

Buttons are all in the right place

New York Biology Retinol Moisturizer

Well, another anti-aging product has made it to my door step for review and I am starting to think that they are trying to tell me something! In true thirty-something fashion...I immediately ripped the box open and began applying while I was still unpacking it! I crossed my fingers and waited...

Well, it has been a few days and I feel like I am already seeing some results. Skin seems a bit firmer and much to my surprise - no redness and no breakouts! This cream is what I would call a medium weight and was light enough to wear under makeup (this is a huge bonus as I can pretty much forget any type of "night routine).

Here are some perks!
  • packed with great ingredients like Jojoba, Green tea, Shea Butter & Vitamin E
  • smaller ingredient list
  • never tested in animals

I was trying to get a solid list of the ingredients but the reflective packaging made it difficult to get the picture. There are fewer ingredients than in most of the products on the shelves AND I saw the little "ORGANIC" note next to a few of the ingredients--this is always a plus for me!

This product is in nice packaging and has what I call "touch" application. You simply press down on the top of the jar and the product comes right out! This is important as it keeps bacteria and germs from getting int your moisturizer.

This moisturizer contains both retinol and hyaluronic acid. You may see these two a lot in anti aging products and that's because they are an amazing tag team! The retinol is kinda bossy-it basically tells your aging cells to behave like younger and firmer cells!  The hyaluronic acid is important because it tells your cells to retain moisture leaving it plump and full. These two also work together to act like a barrier against free radicals. They repair and defend your skin!

So far, I feel like my pores are diminishing, skin darkness is lightening, and so far...the wrinkles are disappearing! I would recommend this to others! You can check it out HERE.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop them below and I will do my best to get you the answer!

Antibacterial Nursing Bra from Mamaway Review

Before I go any, I am not expecting! When you have 5 kids and you even mention the word "Maternity" do have to clarify!

Years ago, If I would have had the opportunity to review a nursing bra...I would almost wonder how to do it. I mean, isn't a nursing bra simply just a nursing bra?  I personally did try nursing with two of my children (was devastated when it wasn't in the cards for me) and can now tell you that no two nursing items are created equal!

I received this antibacterial nursing and sleep bra from Mamaway and I have to say that I am impressed. The quality is great and it has a soft material. The straps are wide enough that they are durable and comfortable. The crossover design makes it very easy to --lets say it--do what needs done! It has a gentle support and is easy to wear.

The only issue that I find with this bra at the same that I have with all light support bras. I am a bigger cup size and simply need more support than this bra provides. That isn't a flaw with this bra in particular - simply fact. That would be my only suggestion to improve this bra. If someone could find a way to add additional support while keeping the functionality...I would be SOLD! Not sure that exists lol!

Overall, the quality is amazing...the price is right...and it was something I would recommend to my friends and family!

If you are interested in scoring this bra...check it out on AMAZON!

Micrite 3D All Use Eye Serum Review

Until my thirties, I never worried about my skin and never even gave a second thought to wrinkles. Then, after hitting the dreaded 3-0...I found that skin care was a whole new ball game! After the birth of my 5th child...I learned that I actually didn't know which game it was, LOL!

I have tried so many different products to try to erase those fine lines and dark circles around my eyes. I have tried some that make a small impact, some that make none, and yet more that have caused skin reactions. When I got the opportunity to try this eye serum I was skeptical to say the least. I am so glad I took a chance though because the results are in and so works!

This serum is easy to apply, is clear and absorbs easily. It didn't cause a reaction with my skin which is a HUGE bonus! I actually started not only using it for my eyes but also for the furrow lines between my brows!

There they before and after pics! In the before, you see the dark areas around my eyes. In the after...just 10 days later, you can see a visible improvement! I wish you saw the full effect of the difference between my brows but, lets be real, I wasn't taking a before picture of that!

SO FAR...Its a HUGE thumbs up from me!

If you wanna check this product out, you can find it on Amazon,
