Product Review - Fast acting Advil®

Fast acting Advil®

Recently, from the awesome people at Crowdtap, I received complimentary for product testing and review purposes, 8 2-count sample packs and 4 coupons for the amazing, fast acting Advil®.  This film-coated tablet is the newest innovation from Advil® with an Ion Core designed to stop pain before it gets worse!

I have a lot of medical conditions and there are way too many pain relievers I cannot take, including aspirin products.  When I have severe pain or headaches, I reach for and trust Advil® to work for me when I need it.  I was ecstatic to give these new tablets a try and share the sample packs and coupons with my friends and family as well.

My husband is an aspirin taker and also likes the powders out there because they work fast for him - but he hates the taste of the powders.  I gave him a sample pack of his own - and proud to say, he's joined the family of Advil®! :)
Our daughter is a tennis player and also takes dance.  She's always having pains but her stomach is really sensitive.. so she doesn't take anything for it.  I gave her a sample pack as well.  Her report back to me was that she used the sample pack, felt results with no digestive issues and the next shopping trip, the coupon I had given her was being used as well!  :)

I gave away 3 more sample packs to people I ran into at the grocery store - all were shopping in the pain relief section so away went the coupons too!  They were all very happy indeed and loved hearing in person the positive results my family and I experienced.
Being in pain causes me un-necessary forehead wrinkles as well.. LOL!  As you can see my before and after photo.. it works!  :)  I leave this review saying, try them for yourself, I recommend them and as with any supplement or medication - check with your own physician first for consultation and advice and remember, results are varied from person to person!

Product Review - Épique Beauty Firming Body Cream

Épique Beauty Firming Body Cream

During the 1st week of October, I decided to purchase this Épique Firming Body Cream on Amazon and give it a try.  I read over the reviews and wondered to myself just how true they really were... Then, I saw what sealed the deal for me.. a total 100% money back satisfaction guarantee and that it's made here in the USA!  Two things that are hard to find with a lot of products, especially as of late, beauty products!  In my opinion, if a company can offer such a strong guarantee then they truly believe in and stand by their product(s) and claims.
So, when the product arrived I looked it over, re-read the ingredients and instructions for use.  I also found myself pleasantly surprised at how much there really was.  I know it's 6 oz/180 ml but for some reason, I imagined it would be a smaller container and wouldn't last me very long.  Glad I was mistaken!  :)
The cream itself has the consistency of a thick or non-cheap shampoo.  It's milky white in color and a little goes a long way!  A blueberry sized amount covers my entire back thigh from buttocks to the back of my knee.  It's NOT oily or greasy.  And oh wow, the scent is amazing!  It's like a peppermint stick went and rolled around with some oranges and had this delicious smelling baby right here!  Because of the unique blend of smells, I think it's perfect for all seasons for use.  My husband loves the scent - he actually asked me what new perfume I was using!  Hahaha!

When I apply the cream as directed, it takes a few minutes to fully absorb into my skin and gives a refreshing, cool sensation... I'm guessing that's the Peppermint Leaf Extract!  It's a nice feeling.  :)
As for personal results - I do believe and can see where it's actually doing its intended work vs offering up false hope.  My little thigh dimples are diminishing and my skin feels smoother, firmer and even softer than it did 2 weeks ago.  Mind you, this isn't plastic surgery in a bottle - however, it DOES actually work when you use it and give it time.  Don't look for a miracle in a week, especially if you aren't even willing to use it 2-3 times a day and don't look for it to be like liposuction either.  Remember, unrealistic expectations will lead to zero results and a complete and total disappointment.

Product Review - ViCElle Vitamin C Facial Serum

Vicelle Vitamin C Facial Serum

Recently I purchased on Amazon, ViCElle Vitamin C Facial Serum.  It comes in a sleek, 1.0 oz/30ml cylindrical container with a dispenser pump.

The serum is clear and liquid in texture vs being thick or creamy.  I'd say a good 3-4 full pumps should be plenty to cover your face, ears and upper neck.

I have sensitive skin and was a little scared of how my face would react.  For me, I have a slight warmth after applying - not a burn or tingle - and definitely nothing uncomfortable... more like, I was out in the sun for maybe 30 minutes.  If you've got fair skin like I do, you know the sensation I'm talking about.  The warmth doesn't last long - maybe 10-15 minutes max.  There's no scent that I can tell and there's no added dyes - the product is clear, like semi-jelled water.

Here are some before and after photos.  This is from 2 weeks of daily recommended use.  None of the photos have been enhanced or retouched or had color adjusted.

As you can see, my face has less dark spots, less fine lines and less darkness and bags under my eyes as well!  I personally recommend you give this facial serum a try and see for yourself the results you too could have!  :)
