Review of HSI Professional Ceramic Flat Iron

I was able to try this ceramic flat iron for free recently and I must say I was pretty impressed. I have a older model HSI Flat Iron and it does the trick but this one I can say was a lot nicer.

I have very curly kinky hair. I rarely straighten my hair due to the fact that I am terrified of damaging it. Also I live in Houston and we always have high humidity levels so usually when my hair is straightened it wants to immediately revert back to it’s natural frizzy/curly state. My hair is super defiant.. lol! I braved my fear of damaging my hair to try this product and I used the Argan Oil Spray that came with it to ward off the damage. I was able to get my hair straight but I feel I needed a smaller or mini straightener to get the fly away little hairs that are near the hair line and scalp. Sadly I did not take pics of my finished hair since I felt it did not looks that great. This is not to say anything bad about the styling tool. It’s just my hair. The only time I can get it to look good straight is when I go to the salon and it takes them an hour to get it right.

So my final thoughts are this is a great styling tool and it does the job way better than others I have tried before. That alone is saying a lot. I am adding pics so you guys can see the specs on the styling tool. It has a lot of quality bells and whistles and I think it is worth every penny.

Review of 3 in 1 HD Smart Phone Lens

This is the coolest gadget!  There are 3 interchangeable lenses you can clip on to your phone or camera. Basically its a 3 in 1 HD lens kit. You can choose the 15x macro lense for really up close, detailed photos.  The fish eye lens is fun as well. The wide angle lens would be perfect for landscapes or weather photos as well. It is also REALLY easy to use and works on all smart phones. I have a LG Stylo and I did have to take my phone case off to use the clip on lens but it wasn’t really a hassle.  If you want to take your photos to the next level or just want to experiment and take some fun photos click the link below and it will take you to the Amazon page where I purchased this. I think it was 17.99 with Prime…not too bad!

Review of Joyal Beauty Age Defy Serum

I recently had the opportunity to try this serum from Joyal Beauty.  The following are the product claims, breakdown of main ingredients and finally I will post my thoughts.

Product Claim:

Serum is professionally formulated  to visibly fade brown spots, freckles, sun spots, acne scars, blackheads, uneven skin tone and prevent future dark spots on skin.  The botanical extracts provide a rich source of antioxidants and vitamins to improve skin tone and texture naturally.

Ingredients are 72% organic.

Made in the U.S.A.

Key/Main Ingredients:

Kojic Acid – Lighten and whiten skin, reduce inflammation, lighten dark spots, melisma, acne scars and freckles.

Hyaluronic Acid – Attract and lock in moisture.  Hydrate and fight wrinkles.

Glycolic Acid – Exfoliate skin.  Lighten discoloration.  Treat acne-prone skin.  treat and prevent blackheads

Salicylic Acid – Exfoliate skin.  Clear pores.  Soothe acne-ravaged skin.

Licorice – Reduce dark age spots.  Lighten and whiten skin.  reduce skin inflammation.


Apply a small amount of serum to your face once daily at night after cleansing and toning.  Follow with a moisturizer.  Avoid eye area.  Product recommends using a sun screen SPF 30 or higher.

Final thoughts:

I am actually pretty pleased with my experience so far using this serum.  I have been using it for one week every day.  I noticed right off that it absorbs REALLY fast and does not dry my skin like some other serums I have tried recently.  I apply the serum morning and night after washing my face.  I immediately apply moisturizer and my under-eye cream and my face is good to go! Another tip I use is to tap the product into your skin.  I feel like the light tapping increases blood flow and helps your face products absorb for maximum absorption.

Right off the bat I have noticed that some redness in my skin and dark spots near my hair line seem to be lessening.  Needless to say I am pretty pleased about that.  I have noticed as I get a bit older the dark spots most likely from sunning in my youth are starting to appear and it is strangely near my hair line.  So any help I can get in diminishing that nonsense is a win win in my book!  I do recommend using sunscreen all the time but especiall with this serum.  The ingredients contained in it will make skin more sensitive to sun exposure so just heed my warning.

So like I said it has only been a week of use but I am impressed with the subtle changes I have noticed during that time.  I am going to continue on with this bottle and update you guys of course but so far this gets the two thumbs up from me!  Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read my review.
