If you’re as obsessed with skincare as we are, then you know exactly how important it is to get quality products with safe and effective ingredients. Sometimes, it’s not easy to find the right products for your skin type and for an affordable price. Look no further, because I hereby give to you an extensive review on OMGBOTANICALS Antioxidant Cleanser and Renewing Serums, and they are seriously out of this world!
So, now that I’ve gotten your attention, it’s time to check out how these skincare products are absolutely killing it!
OMGBOTANICALS Antioxidant Cleanser and Renewing Serum
First off, I just want to say that green is one of my all-time favorite colors! I absolutely LOVE green in skincare products, especially since it exudes a natural and healthy feeling.
The box is designed minimalistic, with beautiful organic motifs. The ingredients and directions are clear and easy to read.
The bottle itself is pretty standard. The cleanser has a squeeze dispenser and is made of plastic while the serum has a pump that gives you a portioned amount each pump. The product size for the cleanser is 120 mL/ 4 oz and 30 mL/ 1 oz for the serum.
For those of you who have a sensitivity to smells, it’s your lucky day! Both the cleanser and serum has absolutely no smell. It almost took me by surprise since there are so many fruit extracts in the ingredient list; I was expecting a fruity scent. However, I actually prefer scentless since it is less distracting and doesn’t conflict with my other skin care products.
REVIEW: OMG Botanicals Antioxidant Cleanser and Renewing Serum - YouTube
In terms of cleansing, the antioxidant cleanser is a powerhouse. First off, the overall feel of the product when cleansing is amazing. The cleanser moisturizes while cleanses and doesn’t have that sticky squeaky clean feeling. This generally means that the pH balance of the cleanser is good.
I still always use micellar water to clean my makeup off since I wear a lot of waterproof eyeliners and eyelash glue. With the micellar water cleanse the product worked flawlessly!
For the serum, the moisturizing properties in this product are perfect! I have combination skin of dry and oily. The oily parts of my skin are more shiny that greasy, so my skin tends to be more dry. This serum soaks into my skin quickly and leaves it supple, elastic, and fresh.
Both of these products are definitely my new go to. Not only do they work well as a moisturizer and cleanser, the rejuvenating, renewing, and health benefits from these products absolutely steal the deal!

Have people been mistaking you for a lot older than you are? Or worse, are they not surprised anymore when you tell them your true age? It happens. The older we get the weaker our facial skin gets; we get wrinkles, crow’s feet, and all kinds of bad things happening to our bodies. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way! There are things you can do to fool them once again into thinking you’re like 20 years younger than you actually are—or at least 10.
How do you reverse time and recapture your youthful glow? Well, there are all kinds of face creams and cleansers that purport to snap your skin back into shape, revealing a new younger you. But we found that creams can only do so much. What you really need is a good face massager machine and cream to truly rejuvenate your sagging facial skin.
Face massagers aren’t only soothing, they actually help work skin creams into your pores better than just rubbing it in by hand. And not any old massager will do the trick. That’s why we went looking for the very best face massager machine and creams out there and here’s what we found:
Topping our list for best overall face massager machine is the Sonic Face Cleanser and Massage Skin Care Brush from the Clean Machine. It’s waterproof so you can use it in the shower or tub and it’s portable so you can pack it with you wherever you go whenever you need a relaxing face massage.
There are 15 different pulse settings for you to choose, from gentle scrub all the way to deep pulsating scrub to rid your face of every bit of dirt and oil lurking beneath the surface. It comes with a USB charger port – no base necessary – which holds its charge for an hour and a half. In other words, you can spend five to ten minutes massaging your face every morning in the shower for weeks without losing power.
For our money, we know that you’ll love this face massager machine. It doesn’t just massage your skin, it deep cleanses. The silicone bristles are bacteria resistant and never need to be replaced; you can simply wash them out in the sink using soap. You won’t be disappointed and if you are, the people at Clean Machine guarantee a total refund – you can’t lose!
Talk about deep cleaning. The Electric Facial Brush by Glamfields is a 3-in-1 face cleanser and exfoliator. It scrubs, exfoliates, and cleanses deep below the surface for maximum results. It comes with three different brush heads depending on how intense you want your face massage to be.
It runs on electric and yet is completely waterproof so you can leave it in the shower and enjoy a professional grade face massage every morning. It has a USB port recharger so that it’s portable and requires no base or cords. You can use this beauty for 4 hours straight after only 2 hours of charge.
We picked this fancy face massager machine because of its portability. It’s perfect for executives on the go and world travelers. It’s designed for maximum comfort in the hand and its pulsating heads easily remove dirt, grease, and makeup.
For the best ultrasonic face massager, it’s a toss-up between the SOLO Mio and the Ultrasonic Electric Ion Rechargeable Face Massager from V-Best. This vibrating massager switches back and forth from hot to cold for maximum skin firming. It goes as low as 6 degrees all the way up to 36 degrees.
This is by far one of the fanciest face massager machines we found, including its LCD display showing whether it is blue for cold or red for hot. The temperature swing combined with the ion vibration shrinks pores and infuses moisture.
After you’ve used the V-Best Ultrasonic Face Massager in the shower, switch the setting to hot and use it to massage your night time skin moisturizer into your face for maximum absorption. For versatility and unique design, we love the V-Best Face Massager.
If power is what you want, we found the best ultrasonic face massager for your money - the SOLO Mio Sonic Face Cleanser and Massager Brush. Made with thousands of tiny silicone "fingers," the massager brush is made to exfoliate and massage all at once.
Not only does it deep cleanse your face of dirt, grease, oil, and makeup, the circular sonic pulses work to improve the elasticity in your skin and restore its youthful firmness. By the time you're finished massaging, your pores will be so clean they actually shrink back to normal size and after repeated use, the company swears wrinkles start to vanish.
Instead of paying for a professional facial massage, you can give one to yourself every day for instant results. Plus this waterproof and portable face massager machine holds a charge longer than all of the others - a month or more without ever needing to recharge it.
When it comes to the best face massage roller, we pick the HaloVa 3D Roller Face Massager. Although it's a manual roller, it is designed to rotate on contact in a way that lifts the skin and firms it for a soothing and effective face massage. More importantly, it firms more than just your face. Wherever you have sagging, drooping skin, the 3D Roller Face Massager is made to firm and tighten skin by relieving pressure using its original kneading technology. If you're prone to tension headaches or have noticing flabby skin around your neck and eyes, this roller alleviates tension, and claims to slim the skin around your face. Totally eco-friendly, this is the perfect face roller if you have sensitive skin. Once you've used it for 90 days, if you are not happy with the results, you can get a full refund - guaranteed!
Do you suffer from migraines? Do you wake up with dark circles under your red puffy eyes? If that's the case, we have the perfect solution for you! The Ice Roller by Esarora is designed to reduce face and eye puffiness, alleviate migraine pain, and gently massage painful sunburns on your face. Cool to the touch, the Ice Roller is designed to calm the skin after painful sunburn and or to shrink pores. It works as a massager too with other skin care products to aid with absorption and to eliminate dry skin. Run the Ice Roller over your eyes to reduce puffiness and wake yourself up in the mornings. If you are suffering from hot flashes, this tool gives immediate relief if you run it along the back of your neck and across your face. Simple, no fuss, but highly effective at more than just facial massages. Choose this face roller for aches and pains along with skin firming and wrinkle prevention.
Now that you've decided on the best face massager machine, you'll need a good face massage cream to go with it. We picked Queen Helene's Almond Professional Massage Cream for best overall. It has a light aromatic scent that helps you to relax as you gently massage the cream into your face. After a deep face massage that removes all of the oils from your face, you'll want to replenish your skin with healthy, nourishing moisture. Infused with natural oil blends and scented with almonds, this massage cream does just that, replacing bad oils with enriching Vitamin A. You can use Queen Helene Massage Cream all over your body, wherever you have dry skin. That's perfect for our recommended full body face rollers. Don't hold back - slather your roller or massager with massage cream applying it to your face, neck, and all over your body!
Say you have super oily skin. The last thing you want to do is add oil or moisturizing cream to your face. No worries - we found the best face massage cream for oily skin! We recommend using Wheat Germ Face Massage Cream from Jovees to moisturize without leaving skin filmy and oily.
The last thing you want to do after deep cleaning and exfoliating is to clog your pores up with an oily cream. Jovees' Wheat Germ Face Massage Cream is made with delicate herbs and vitamin E to add radiance and glow without the grease.
Using this face massage cream works in tandem with your face massager to help improve elasticity in the face and increase firmness. After one use, you will see a noticeable difference in the way your skin looks and feels - especially if you are using a face massager or roller to apply it instead of just rubbing it in with your hands.

We did not take any shortcuts to bring you the best long lasting perfumes for women. Why? Well, that’s simple. If you haven’t noticed by now, we are obsessed with perfumes and finding new scents!
Jamila by Swiss Arabian is the purest form of elegance in perfume form. This concentration perfume oil is extremely long lasting, meaning a little bit is going to go a long way. It will stay on your skin all day long. The middle notes of jasmine and vanilla orchid are balanced perfectly with top notes of Apple and base notes of Sandalwood. It also features just a hint of Aniseed. This feminine scent by Swiss Arabian makes the list of best long last perfumes for women because this oil smells beautifully when it is diffused and used as aromatherapy.
Vince Camuto Eau De Parfum Spray for Women - 3.4fl oz
This designer fragrance by Vince Camuto is one of the best long lasting perfumes for women because Camuto’s wife had a hand in developing the feminine aroma of this perfume. Vince Camuto’s signature perfume was designed to compliment an independent and confident woman. It features a very warm and inviting scent. The scent consists of rum and blossoming jasmine. The base notes of this scent are amber and patchouli. It is a deep and unique scent. The bottle this perfume comes in is also extravagant and lovely, just like the perfume itself. It has a short and stout vessel for the perfume and then has a gorgeous golden decoration on top.
This perfume by Jean Paul Gaultier was originally perfected in 1993. The fragrance was well known for being an intense floral scent. Now, while this scent still boasts main notes of tiare flower and rose, it also has notes of pomegranate as well. It is known for being a heavier scent, best worn in the winter months. But, it is also extremely long lasting. This scent is perfect, and moderately designed, to be worn out on the town for a nice evening. Just as the name suggests, this perfume is pretty intense with it’s more subtle notes of jasmine and vanilla that linger beautifully.
Wildfox is a popular vintage inspired clothing brand that released their first ever fragrance in 2015 in collaboration with none other than cosmetic guru: Elizabeth Arden. We named the Wildfox fragrance as one of the best long lasting perfumes for women because, well, Elizabeth Arden. No, but if we are being honest, in comparison to Passion by Elizabeth Taylor, Wildfox has a more feisty scent. The top notes are a compelling mixture of absinthe and apricot. Similar to other Elizabeth Arden scents, this product is light and elegant. The bottom notes are that of honey and musk, which complete this flirty perfume.
Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy Eau De Parfum Spray - 3.3 ounce
Midnight Fantasy by Britney Spears is the perfect elegant long lasting perfume for evening wear. The bottle is a deep blue with swarovski crystals to resemble stars in the night sky. This is Britney Spear’s fourth fragrance and it is geared towards a younger audience. The top notes are very fruity and light, featuring plum and cherry. The middle notes are where the florals come in. These notes consist of orchid, iris, and freesia. The bottom notes are that of amber and musk. This fragrance is light, but consists of more darker smells. It also is very long lasting and is a classic favorite for night time wear.
Black Opium was released by Yves Saint Laurent back in 2014 to highlight a darker more passionate side of the Yves Saint Laurent brand. The perfume was a collaboration by several different top perfume artisans. Black Opium is meant to give off a sultry rock and roll vibe to whoever wears it. This vibe probably inspired the design for the bottle, which is all black with fine glitter. The main dominating note in this scent is that of strong coffee. The middle notes are almond and licorice. We love how unique this scent is and it’s lack of floral notes. We feel this lack of floral only adds to the longevity of this perfume. The base notes are cedar and patchouli.
Lancome La Vie Est Belle Eau De Parfum Spray - 1.7 ounce
Lancome’s well known La Vie Est Belle was created with finding one’s inner happiness in mind. The scent is uplifting, lively and sweet. This incredible scent was formulated after 5,000 different versions were scrapped. The bottle itself was designed around the original vintage Lancome perfume bottle. The top notes are that of black currant and pear. The middle notes are more floral, providing you with hints of jasmine and orange blossom. The base notes are that of tonka bean and praline. We really love the uniqueness of the base of this long lasting scent and we have become part of the hype for this amazing smelling product.
This post is made possible with support from AARP’s Disrupt Aging. All opinions are my own.
I’ve always been a fan of Aaliyah (RIP) and I agree that age ain’t nothing but a number! I am a huge supporter of AARP’s #DisruptAging campaign, we really need to change our way of thinking people!!
There are so many negative stereotypes about aging for women in our society and this topic is relevant and so timely for women of absolutely any generation.
Photographer: Brady Hahn
I was so lucky to be able to be on a private conference call with Cindy Gallop, founder of MakeLoveNotPorn. She is a legendary entrepreneur who champions women’s rights. Also make sure to check out her amazing Ted Talk titled Make Love Not Porn.
Gallop makes sure to tell everyone how old she is as much as possible. In fact, she shouts it from the rooftops. She is a very proud 57 and she’ll be the first to let you know it, which is super refreshing. Older women are the most invisible segment of our society she says and its important to change this fact.
Gallop doesn’t believe in following societies limited expectations about how a women should be living her life. She has never wanted to be married, never wanted children and dates younger men. (I too have never needed to be married or wanted children - although I do prefer older men!) She believes that as women we can live life very differently than everyone else and still feel very happy and fulfilled. Its unfortunate that men don’t have these same limitations and expectations. It’s up to us to change this!!
The reason why it's especially imperative for young women to be educated about the #DisruptAging campaign is because our ideas and perceptions of age are ingrained into us at a very young age. The most easily underestimated group in our society is teenaged girls. Their opinions, ideas and thoughts are simply not as valued as that of other groups. Teenage women and women of all ages need to be educated on the ample value that they bring to society.
I myself am a reformed ageist and by the way I am a proud 38 years of age (almost 39!). When I was in my early twenties, I had success in my industry at a fairly young age and I would frequently judge older women who were entering the industry later than me. I thought of them as less than me since I was younger. Now that I have gained some maturity I am horrified at my previous younger self’s way of thinking. I was only speaking out of a deep seated insecurity and low self esteem and I was also a product of this male-dominated, ageist society. It’s so important that we start to educate our young women as early as possible so they don’t act as I did.
We have to break down the stereotypes of a male dominated society. For example the pervasive idea that ‘Sex Sells” is an idea seen entirely through a male lens. One reason that this idea persists is that in advertising, 97% of men hold the creative director positions. Also our media and Film and Television are heavily male dominated. We need more women to fight to hold more of these positions!
Why are older women dismissed while older men are treated like elder statesmen? Its simply ludicrous that at age 50 many women think their lives are over and are on the decline. We are only halfway through our life at age 50 and we are never too old to do anything. There’s still so much for us to accomplish and this idea is a sad lense that we need to change NOW!
Gallop teaches that what a woman can do to be seen than more than her age is to absolutely dismiss the idea of age defining you in any way. Completely own your age and illuminate the point that your age is what has earned you all the valuable assets that you currently bring to the table. As women, we have to actively put our own value out there because our society does not reward and understand the value of women as much as it does so for men.
So get started! Practice saying your age and make it an integral part of how you self promote!
Just remember that the older you get the better life gets!

I’m so excited for 2018, I know that it's going to be an amazing year! A new year means a fresh start and I like to give everything in my life a once over and refresh, including my makeup routine. I already started the new year off with a 7-day juice cleanse and I’ve been regularly spinning and going to pilates. (This is a BIG deal as I haven’t exercised in years!)
You can pick up Neutrogena makeup at Walmart at the best prices!
Neutrogena is a brand that we have all known and trusted for many years as a skincare brand and you can also trust Neutrogena with all of your skincare needs. They only use high quality ingredients and you are getting quality at a reasonable price. Neutrogena blends science with beauty expertise with heavy duty research. Their products highlight a women’s natural beauty and feel good to use.
In 2018 I want to feature a fresh and healthy look. Here's how I use Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Makeup to achieve this naturally beautiful makeup!
How to Apply Blush and Contour
First apply your Neutrogena® Healthy Skin® Compact Makeup. It’s ideal for all skin types and smooths your skin with a light to medium coverage. I like to use my foundation brush or my favorite blender to apply.
Next up I start on my contouring. Using my favorite dark contouring shade, I draw a line from the top of the ear towards my mouth. I draw two lines down the length of my nose to make it look smaller. Finally I add the contouring powder around the entire edges of my face to make my face appear smaller and more oval, which is the ideal face shape.
After I’m done applying the dark contour powder, I take a lighter contouring shade and use my blending brush to blend all over so there are no harsh lines anywhere.
Next up I use my Neutrogena® Healthy Skin® Blush for both my eyes and my cheeks for a cohesive, natural look. The shade that I chose to use is the the Bronzed shade, there are five total shades to choose from. First I take an eyeshadow brush and apply the blush all over my eyelids
Next up, I take a blush brush and apply it above the contour line that I previously applied.
I top it all off with the Moisture Smooth Color Stick which comes in 15 gorgeous shades. I chose to use a light pink color for this look, the pink nude. This lipstick moisturizes and conditions lips using Mango and Shea Butter, yummy!
Voila! Here is the finished look!
At the end of the day, I use the Neutrogena® Makeup Remover Cleansing towelettes to take it all off! These towelettes are great for travel also.
You can pick up all the Neutrogena products featured in this tutorial at your local Walmart!

I love my gummy vitamins, they might taking vitamins a fun process instead of a tedious task. Nature Made® Gummies are a “A Gummy You Can Trust” because they are USP certified! I’m currently taking each of the gummies mentioned in this article each and every single day.

4. Pack Your Vitamins!
You definitely want to keep your regular routine as much as possible on a long haul flights so I definitely like to pack my vitamins and take them during the flight. I love my Nature Made® gummy vitamins because they are so tasty that I can take them as a fruity snack also. The Nature Made® Vitamin D3 Adult Gummies is also super awesome since I definitely am not getting my dose of sunshine while inside the airplane cabin!
5. Pack the Petroleum Jelly
Petroleum jelly is very multi-purpose. The absolute worse thing is to get stuck on a international long haul flight with no chapstick and enduring dry lips for the entire flight! You can also use the jelly for moisturizing
Your hair is probably going to get messy on the flight. The easiest way to look sleek after the flight is to quickly use a hair bun to make a perfect bun on top of your head! It only takes a minute or two and you’re all set.
7. Concealer or BB Cream
I would recommend not wearing foundation on a long haul flight, instead bring along your favorite BB cream to touch up any trouble spots before you deplane.

Cetaphil® is a trusted brand for sensitive skin, in fact, it’s the most recommended skincare brand by dermatologists. While I still personally suffer from oily and problem skin today, it was quite a bit more severe in high school. I remember my doctor recommended Cetaphil as an affordable and effective brand that could easily be purchased at local stores such as Target. It offers great results and is safe to use daily without stripping the skin and helps to keep your skin plump and moisturized.
You can pick up Cetaphil® Daily Hydrating Lotion, Cetaphil® Rich Hydrating Night Cream with Hyaluronic Acid and Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleanser at your local Target in the face care aisle. I went to the one in West Hollywood on La Brea.
You can also find Cetaphil® Gentle Makeup Remover in the face care aisle in Target!
Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion
This daily lotion features Hyaluronic Acid which instantly hydrates dry skin and holds in the moisture. It's totally oil-free and is light on your skin. Cetaphil Daily Hydrating Lotion gives you instant, intense hydration and easily absorbs into your skin. It's great to use before your regular morning makeup routine. Its unique formulation is ideal for very dry skin but works well with any skin type and is non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free. This is best used after cleansing your skin with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Night Cream
I am a huge fan of night creams! This rich and soothing night cream helps to protect your skin’s moisture barrier. It helps your skin recover and gently nourishes overnight, so you'll wake up with soft, smooth and plump skin. Hyaluronic Acid is featured here also, along with Pro-Vitamin Complex and Olive Extract. Apply gently with your fingers at night after cleansing with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser.
How to Pamper Yourself in the Bath
To feel beautiphil I like to try to pamper myself regularly with at home spa days. It’s so important to keep my skin moisturized and hydrated for an even and glowing complexion. It’s super easy to set up a spa day at home. Here is my personal step-by-step process:
Select your favorite playlist
For a relaxing spa day, a great playlist is essential. I’ll just pull up my favorite playlist on my phone and listen to the most relaxing music that I can meditate and unwind to.
Light the candles
The ambiance in my bathroom is really important during my DIY spa day. I love to fill the room with scented candles featuring relaxing scents such as Lavender, Chamomile and/or Lilac.
3. Brew some Tea
Not only do I want to hydrate my skin from the outside during my spa day, I want to keep my body hydrated as well. I recommend setting up a gorgeous pitcher of water, filled with fruits and lemons and ice or brewing your favorite cup of relaxing tea: Lavender, Lemon Balm or Chamomile are all great.
4. Draw a Bath
Draw a bath to your ideal temperature. I personally love my bath to be super hot as it feels like it opens up my pores more. I also like to include tons of soap so that I get plenty of foam in my bath.
5. Start with super clean skin.
Before I get settled in I want my skin to be squeaky clean! Using Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser to wash my skin, I start my spa day with a clean slate.
6. Deep Hair Treatment
I hardly ever have the time to give myself a deep hair treatment, but an at home spa day is the perfect opportunity to treat my hair. Just slather on your favorite hair treatment and wrap your hair up in a towel while you spa!
7. Mask Time!
Face masks are great to get some extra moisturization in. Since you’re gonna be here for a while put on your favorite face mask and sit back and relax!
8. Sit back and relax!
I’m always prepared for spa day with a meditation that I want to try out, a new book, or even a movie to watch on my phone. Choose your favorite lazy day activity it’s the perfect day to catch up on the latest magazines or readings!
9. Moisturize Skin
At the end of my spa day I like to use Cetaphil Rich Hydrating Night Cream. Leave this rich cream on all night for beautiful, silky skin the next day!
