..::Product Review::.. Yumi Vitamin C Serum



My Review of Yumi Vitamin C Serum

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"Yümi Signature Vitamin C Serum contains luxurious botanicals usually found in expensive anti-aging products. Based in soothing Aloe vera, with hyaluronic acid, the antioxidant power comes from vitamin C (Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate) and 14 organic botanical extracts. You'll be amazed at how easily it absorbs as you massage it in. You'll love how it transforms the appearance of your skin. Yümi Signature Antioxidant Skin Care Serum is a unique 25% Active vitamin C blend, and the only vitamin C serum for face, neck and décolleté you'll ever need."

Review…


I was a sent a 1.0 fl oz bottle of of the Vitamin C Serum from Yumi to review.  
The price for this bottle is $29.99, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.

Packaging & Presentation of Yumi Vitamin C Serum

This facial serum arrived in a box that is a little over 4" tall.  The box is white with orange accents.  The front of the box labels the product, and the back of the box lists the ingredients, directions, and distribution information.



The first side of the box describes the product in detail, and some of the main ingredients that make this product work well, and the other side of the box is about Yumi, the company that makes this serum.


The front of the bottle looks just like the front of the box.  It's really a nice bottle, it would look great amongst your other products.


The first side of the bottle gives the directions and the lot number.  The other side of the bottle lists the main ingredients and the distribution information. 



This product uses a pump dispenser to apply the serum.


My Personal Experience with Yumi Vitamin C Serum

Vitamin C Serum is one of my most favorite products to use.  It brightens your skin, it gets rid of dry, dull skin, and it provides a base layer that you can moisturize over.

This product was really effective.  It really gives you a nice glow with a few uses.  It makes my skin feel youthful and healthy.  

My skin has been drying out since the weather is getting cooler, and it's looking more duller than ever.  That's why I love this serum.  It turns that around and brings back my summer-sun kissed skin.

The serum itself has a very low viscosity and it is clear.



This serum does not have a fragrance. 

Pros of Yumi Vitamin C Serum
  • Gives dull skin a beautiful glow in only a few uses.
  • You can use this both day and night.
  • You get a lot of serum for your money.
  • It easily absorbs in your skin.

      Cons of Yumi Vitamin C Serum
      • This serum is so runny that the pump dispenser is hard to use.  When you press the pump, it comes out so fast that sometimes it can be messy if you aren't careful.
            Summary

            This serum is awesome.  I love how easily it applies and absorbs.  It's a simple formula, and I've had no interaction problems between this and any other products that I've been using.  I don't use a vitamin C serum everyday, but I do use it a few times a week.  I really like the Yumi brand, they make fantastic and quality products.

            ..::Product Review::..Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum



            My Review of Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum

            What is it exactly?

                 From the website. . .
            "Despite its immense popularity, retinol is not universally well-tolerated. Searching for a gentler alternative, scientists recently made a remarkable discovery in the sea. Forget the peeling, dryness and irritation. This serum contains responsibly-harvested sea star peptides to make your skin look more elastic, firm and supple. Enhance clarity and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With aloe to soothe, and cleanse; and hyaluronic acid to lock in hydration."

            Review…


            I was a sent a 0.5 fl oz bottle of Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum from Yumi to review.  
            The price for this bottle is $32.99, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.

            Packaging & Presentation of Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum

            This facial serum arrived in a box that is approximately 3.5" tall.  The box is white with purple accents.  The front of the box labels the product, and the back of the box lists the ingredients and directions.



            The first side of the box describes the product in detail, and the other side of the box is about Yumi, and presents distributor information.


            The bottle is really pretty.  It is clear with a blue tint.  The front of the bottle looks just like the front of the box.  The back of the bottle gives the directions and the product lot number.


            This product uses a pump dispenser to apply the serum.


            My Personal Experience with Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum

            Every anti-aging serum that I have used in recent times has been infused with retinol in some fashion.  

            While retinol is awesome and effective, it does take a while for your skin to accept the powerful ingredient.

            This serum is really neat because it provides the same benefits as a retinol serum without actually using retinol. 

            The serum itself is more towards the liquid side, and it is tinted a light blue.



            I must say that this serum works so good.  The effects are instant, and extremely noticeable.

            I use this under my makeup, and it makes my face feel so smooth.

            I also would like to say that this smells so good!  It has a light, light mint smell.  It's not overpowering, and smells extremely clean.

            Pros of Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum
            • Perfect results almost instantaneously.  
            • This formula works just as well as a retinol formula.
            • This is the best serum that I have used underneath my makeup.
            • It creates soft, silky, and smooth skin.
            • The fragrance is amazing!

              Cons of Asteria Anti-Aging Facial Serum
              • There are no cons to this product.
                    Summary

                    I absolutely love this serum.  Instead of having to 'work up to it', I was able to use it daily without my skin drying out from the retinol.  I love the fragrance, it is very clean smelling and uplifting.  I love using it underneath my makeup because it provides the perfect foundation for application.

                    ..::Product Review::.. Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3



                    My Review of Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3

                    What is it exactly?

                         From the website. . .
                    "Vitamin D3 is a vitamin that is critical to keeping both phosphorus and calcium in balance and being used properly. Many people do not get adequate vitamin D3 because they do not spend enough time in the sun.


                    Since this vitamin is so important, you want to look into vitamin D3 supplements to ensure that you are getting enough. Anthony Norman, MD, in a recent article in Endocrine Today, stated “it is now widely appreciated by vitamin D scientists that 50% of people in North America and Western Europe are vitamin D insufficient. Given that two-thirds of the people are vitamin D-insufficient or deficient. It is clear that merely eating vitamin D-rich foods is not adequate to solve the problem for most adults."

                    Review…


                    I was a sent a bottle of 120 Vitamin D3 softgels from Nature's True Medicine to review.  
                    The price for this bottle is $14.99, and it ships free with Amazon Prime.

                    Packaging & Presentation of Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3

                    The bottle stands approximately 3" tall.  It was shipped to me wrapped in protective bubbles, and there was no damage to the bottle when I received it.  The front of the bottle labels the product, and gives imperative information such as, '2,000 IU, GMO-free, 120 ct'




                    On one side of the label you can find detailed supplement facts, ingredients (both of the supplement and the shell), and company contact information.




                    On the other side, the label describes the recommended usage, warnings associated with the product, and that there are NO artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, sugar, starch, milk, lactose, gluten, wheat, yeast, fish, or sodium.


                    The bottom of the bottle has the lot number and the expiration date printed on it.


                    The bottle is sealed with a plastic safety seal.  There is a small perforated strip for easy opening.

                    My Personal Experience with Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3

                    Until recently, I never really knew that Vitamin D3 was so important.  It's crazy to read that so many people are deficient in the vitamin.  

                    If you are deficient, you will notice some symptoms.

                     + General aches & pains
                    + Fatigue
                    + Weakness
                    + Bone Pain
                    + Frequent Infections

                    The first thing I did was open the outer safety seal, and unscrewed the cap.  At this point, I was then presented with yet another safety seal.  To me, this is important.  I want to know that the supplements that I take are protected.


                    When I opened the seal, I found lots of little gel capsules.  They are a little golden looking, and they are tiny.


                    Here is the size relative to a quarter.


                    Pros of Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3
                    • You only have to take one softgel per day.
                    • This is a high dosage, it's more D3 than its competitors.
                    • There are 120 softgels, this bottle will last you a long time. 
                    • They are easy to swallow and do not have a taste.

                      Cons of Nature's True Medicine Vitamin D3
                      • This product does contain gelatin (not vegetarian).
                            Summary

                            It takes a while to build your D3 up, so the effects are not immediate.  What I do want to focus on is the quality of this particular brand.  They give you a lot of capsules for your money.  The bottle is protected with two safety seals.  I feel like I am pretty deficient in D3 myself, so I'm looking forward to increasing my amount.

                            I was a sent a 1.2 fl oz bottle of the Bio'Sensiya Rejuvenating MultiVitamin Night Time Serum from Sweetsation Therapy to review.  
                            The price for this bottle is $32.00, plus shipping from Amazon.

                            You can also find it on the Sweetsation Therapy website, along with a multitude of other products.

                            Bio'Sensiya Rejuvenating MultiVitamin Night Time Serum

                            The bottle stands approximately 4.5" tall.  The bottle has a bright orange label and a chrome cap.




                            The safety seal covers the entire bottle, and it has an 'easy tear' perforated strip.


                            The ingredients list is located on the right side of the label.


                            On the left side of the label is where you can find the usage directions.


                            This bottle uses a pump in order to dispense the serum.


                            The expiration date is printed on a label located on the bottom of the bottle.


                            My Personal Experience with the Bio'Sensiya Rejuvenating MultiVitamin Night Time Serum

                            This serum is one of the most interesting that I've ever used.  The bottle is beautiful, and the serum is so easy to use because you only have to apply it once every night.

                            The serum is a cream-colored liquid.  It has a lower viscosity, so it kind of runs when applied.  I find that the best way to apply it is to pump a small amount into the palm of your hand and rub it together, then apply it to your clean, toned face.


                            This is a very strong serum.  I recommend using it only a few times a week to begin, and then upping your use over a period of time.  The ingredients are wonderful, but if you are not used to using them it can cause a little bit of redness.

                            Another aspect of this serum that I'd like to discuss is the fragrance. This is a highly scented serum.  I applied it and then sat there trying to figure out what it smelled like, because it certainly smelled like something that I was familiar with.  Finally, it hit me.  It smells like citronella.  The fragrance dissipates over time, but initially as you apply it, it is quite noticeable.

                            It really, really softens the skin.  It makes it even, and I love that it contains the amazing ingredients that it does.

                            Pros of the Bio'Sensiya Rejuvenating MultiVitamin Night Time Serum
                            • You only have to use it once a night.
                            • The serum is easy to apply and spreads evenly.
                            • The bottle is really attractive.
                            • The amount of product you receive is well worth the money.
                            • Contains organic ingredients and is not tested on animals.

                              Cons of the Bio'Sensiya Rejuvenating MultiVitamin Night Time Serum
                              • The highly scented formula may be off-putting for some of you that are sensitive to certain concentrated fragrance.
                                    Summary

                                    This serum is really neat, and although I'm not crazy about the fragrance, it is a really nice product.  It creates smooth, even skin.  There are more ingredients in this serum than other ones that I've previously used.  I just love the ingredients and the effectiveness of them when applied.  Results can be noticed immediately, but will always increase with continued use.

                                    ..::Product Review::.. RTG's Micro LED 30 String Lights



                                    My Review of RTG's Micro LED 30 String Lights

                                    What is it exactly?

                                         From the website. . .
                                    "These 30 Micro LED Battery Operated String Lights are perfect for use as a lighting addition to any decorative project. Very thin wire hosts 30 very small LED bulbs that are about size of rice grain and are intensely bright. With steady 360 degree viewing angle they illuminate in every direction. They are easy to hide, give beautiful true color, and use only a fraction of energy needed by regular light strings. Newly designed battery box with locking clips is waterproofed and very easy to hide."

                                    Review…


                                    I was a sent a box of the 30 Micro LED String Lights from RTG to review.  
                                    The price for these lights is $7.95, and qualifies for free shipping with Amazon Prime.

                                    There are other options, too.  You can get 100, 60, 30, or 20 lights (depending on your project's needs).

                                    Packaging & Presentation of 
                                    RTG's Micro LED 30 String Lights

                                    The lights were smaller than I thought, and arrived in a 3.5" x 4" x 1" plastic box.  I guess I was expecting something like Christmas lights, but these are tiny.

                                    The front of the box labels the product, and points out 8 product specifications.  The back of the box is see through, but you can see a little card that reminds you that there is a 100% satisfaction guarantee.



                                    The first side of the box lists the 8 different operating functions.  The opposite side lists the product usage cautions.




                                    After taking it out of the box, you can see the black battery box and the LED lights that are attached.



                                    The battery box has clips (a new product addition that makes this box waterproof).  The clips allow you to open and close the battery compartment.



                                    There are 8 different operating functions.  I was confused at first because functions 4 and 6 are the same, but upon further research, I found that function 4 uses 2 sets of lights, and function 6 uses them all at the same time.  There is also a button in the top left that lets the user select the mode.  Just press it the same amount of times as the operating function number.



                                    My Personal Experience with RTG's Micro LED 30 String Lights

                                    I love playing around with lights.  They are really fun, and what I liked about these is that they are so versatile.  You can use them inside or outside, underwater or on the surface, and the wire is green so it's easy to hide.

                                    Before anything, I put (3) AA batteries in the battery box.


                                    Then I found a bunch of different places to try them out!  I found that they work in a variety of instances.  I took pictures while it was light outside, so the pictures do not do justice to how nice these lights actually are.

                                    The work as a festive kitchen decoration during the holiday season.  Around the oven handle or lighting up the edges of a table.


                                    They work great as bathroom ambient lighting.


                                    They are nice to wrap around outdoor posts/staircases for any occasion.


                                    The lights wrap easily around any piece of furniture, and the box is easy to hide.  The dark wire blends well.


                                    I also like that these lights can be used in crafts.  Sometimes lighting is all you need to give your handmade craft a little 'dimension'.


                                    Pros of RTG's Micro LED 30 String Lights
                                    • Very easy to use.

                                    • There are so many potential uses, depending on what your project is.
