Cellulite with Retinol & Caffeine and Body Firming Cream Review

*This post contains affiliate links*

Hi everyone! I am here to tell you about another Cellulite Cream, this one is from Naturalico, and although it has not completely rid my thighs of cellulite, it has had a marked improvement on the appearance of my thighs, and hips.


This cellulite cream comes in a 4 oz tub, and has a great peppermint scent, that reminds me of my favorite foot scrub! This particular cellulite cream boosts the greatest amount of both Retinol, and caffeine. The Retinol in this cream, enhances collagen production, encourages skin renewal and helps tighten and firm the skin. While the caffeine provides antioxidants that help protect the skin from free radicals.

Add to that the  L-Carnitine that helps the body metabolize fat, Green Tea that stimulates the release of stored fat, Glaucine which is Responsible For Decreasing Fat Deposits , and Coenzyme-A that breaks down fat and helps restore connective tissue, and you have a recipe that will work from the outside in, to help heal your skin.

As I mentioned, I have not seen a complete disappearance of the cellulite that is on my hips and thighs, but there is a difference in appearance. The skin is tighter, looks healthier, and the cellulite is less pronounced. All in all, I am pleased with this product, and will continue to use it.

I will say that I tried something different with this cellulite cream, that I have not tried with the others, and it was using a brush after applying the cream. The direction say to rub the cream vigorously into the affected areas, once or twice a day. Well, I did that, only this time, I also lightly brushed my skin is a circular motion to increase blood flow to the area. I can't say for certain if that helped, but I wont discount it either!


The other thing I really liked, was that it has also made a difference in the appearance of my stretch marks! You have to love that feature! So, if you are looking for a product that will help lessen the appearance of your cellulite and stretch marks, then get your hands on a tub of Cellulite Cream, with Retinol and Caffeine on amazon for $28.00 down from $59.99 (53% savings)

Amazing Facts About - Penguins Review and Giveaway!!!


Do your kids love to learn about animals? Then you have to check out this cute little book, Amazing Facts about Penguins, by Dan Jackson.

This is a short book, stuffed full of great facts about Penguins. There are some things that I didn't know, so it was a learning experience for mom and kiddos, alike.

The kids loved all the pictures in the book, and both kids (age 3, and 7), have asked to look at the book several times. It is also a perfect book for independent time, as my 7 year old is learning to read, and he can read the words he already knows, and fit together the other information based on the pictures.

I think that Dan did a great job, not only giving really great information, but also writing it in a way that gets kids interested. I am very pleased with the book, and have several more from Dan that I will be reviewing soon.

In the meantime, hop on over to Amazon, and get a copy of Amazing Facts About - Penguins  for $2.99 (Kindle)

But, if you want a chance to win a copy, then enter the giveaway below, and Good Luck!

*This post contains affiliate links*

I have been plagued by dark under eye circles for as long as I can remember, I have tried a number of things to help lessen the aging around my eyes...tea bags, cucumbers, cold name it, I have probably tried it. I had all but given up at trying to make my 34 year old eyes, stop looking like they are so much older. That is until Foxbrim sent me this absolutely amazing Youthful Radiance Eye Cream.

With ingredients like, Aloe, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil, Green Tea, Vitamin C + E, Tamanu Oil, this eye cream will hydrate your eye area like you wouldn't believe. Not only does it hydrate the skin around your eyes, but it soothes and strengthens the skin as well.

This eye cream comes in a pump bottle for easy dispensing, is thick and creamy, yet absorbs quickly. I was amazed at how good my skin felt, and how quickly it started to diminish the signs of crows feet, and the puffiness that comes along with dark under eye circles.

I have been impressed with Foxbrim's products since I first started using them, and this eye cream will fit in great with their other facial products.

Thirty Scary Tales eBook Review

*This post contains affiliate links*

I have reviewed several books from author Rayne Hall, and with each new series of stories, I am more  and more impressed with her talent.

In this book, Thirty Scary Tales, don't expect to find stories filled with intense horror and gore. Instead, these are psychological thrillers. Stories that will scare some, but only mildly upset others, because as Rayne mentions, "Fear is personal. The same story may constrict one person’s chest and set their heart racing, yet send only a mild tingle down another reader’s spine" (Rayne Hall).

I like a variety of genres, and I have found that, even though these are not your typical horror stories, they do invoke a certain amount of fear. Especially the first story in this book, The Devil You Know. I think the reason that this story scares me, is because it reminds me of a life that I struggled to get out of, and that had hurt me for a long time.

The thing about scary stories, is that, they can be about very basic things, but if the reader has ever experienced what the writer is discussing, and if it was a negative experience, then those wounds can reopen and cause nightmares.

In that sense, I think that Rayne did an excellent job. Not all of the stories are ones that I can relate to, but my imagination is wild, and I can imagine just how scary some of those situations would be in the here and now. One example is the story Prophetess, The story of Cassandra, and how she had visions of the evils that would come...including the fall of Troy at the hands of the Greek Soldiers. I would be terrified if I had the ability to see what evils lie ahead.

There are 30 tales in this book, and 30 chances for Rayne to show you her talent, and she does a superb job. This book is great for anyone that loves to read, but I think it is suited best for young adults.

I recommend Thirty Scary Tales  and you can get it on amazon for .99 (Kindle) or $11.69 (Paperback)

The scent that I was given for review is Well Being, and it is a beautiful scent. A mixture of citrus, and floral, with essential oils. I could smell the crystals working, not long after the wash started, and when I transferred to the dryer, the scent was still strong. After removing the load from the dryer, the scent was perfect. Not too strong, not too light, but just right; A truly perfect laundry enhancer.

I was barely able to get the load folded, because my sweet little 3 year old wanted to lay on the clothes! She didn't want me to put them away!
