GoPURE Youth Glow Eye Gel

They say that eyes are the windows to the soul. What do your eyes say? Tired? Weary? Old? I’m afraid to think what my eyes may say, sometimes. With late nights working, kids, allergies, and various other problems that life throws my way I’ve had dark under eyes often, along with more than my share of puffiness. So, I use lots of eye creams that are supposed to reduce darkness and puffiness. Most recently, I have been using GoPURE’s Youth Glow Eye Gel, which I got to try complimentarily in exchange for my review.

    •Dramatically reduces puffiness under and around the eyes - Look more refreshed, younger and more attractive
    • Reduces appearance of dark circles under and around your eyes - Making eyes look younger

    • Safe for all skin types & does not contain parabens, sulfates or alcohol.

This little bottle (0.5 fl. oz.) of eye gel is luxurious. It smells like fresh cucumber and feels refreshing as it is put on. Only a tiny dab is needed, however I always seem to be heavy handed with the pump because I get way too much out with each pump. As far as looking younger and getting rid of dark circles, the jury is still out. It does refresh and hydrate. Youth Glow Eye Gel is available on and GoPURE Natural’s own website.

Speed Jump Rope by Bella Naturals Review

I fell off the wagon some time ago with keeping fit. So when I recently had the opportunity to review Bella Natural’s Jump Rope, I saw this as a great time to start getting back in shape. I haven’t jump roped in a long time.

Jump roping is an inexpensive way to get fit. I absolutely love ways to avoid spending lots of money, including not spending money on gym memberships. I do like gym equipment, but I think that there are plenty of ways to get an effective workout without spending tons of money.

Jump roping is a great workout and burns lots of calories. Just 10 minutes burns the same about of calories of 30 minutes of slow cardio work. This is wonderful for people, like me, who don’t want to spend a lot of time working out. I like doing short bursts of more intensity because it feels awesome to have a short, effect way to burn calories.  Jump roping is also versatile for beginners or for those capable of a more advanced workout.

This jump rope from Bella Naturals is adjustable, has high grade metal ball bearings, and is made of a quality thin cable. It’s lightweight, yet durable. When it first arrived, I did doubt its durability because it is a very light, thin cable. It works well for me and does work smoothly. I like it better than the rope kind and plastic kind that I’ve used previously. It even comes with a neat storage bag.

It provides a great workout for beginners, WOD’s, Cross Fit, MMA, boxers, and anyone looking to burn some calories or get their hear rate going. Bella Naturals Speed Jump Rope is sold on

Poppy Austin Eye Cream Review

The latest product that I've gotten to try, through a promotion from Tomoson, is Poppy Austin Eye Cream. I've fought under-eye discoloration and puffiness for years, and as a result I've also used many eye creams and products for helping my eyes look better. I know that not all face creams, especially eye creams, are created equal.

Poppy Austin is a unique company that started by chance with a blueprint for argan oil and the belief that, "ingredients matter." Today Poppy Austin makes hair and skin care products with premium and ethically sourced ingredients.

Poppy Austin Eye Cream is a nice, rich moisturizer that comes in a handy pump. It recently came on the U.S. market after an extensive round of research, development and production. It promises to tackle dark under eye circles, baggy eyes, crows feet and fine lines. It is made with natural ingredients, like green tea, vitamin C, aloe, jojoba oil, and rosehip oil. It's gentle ingredients are great for the eye area, but it can also be used on the entire face. It does not contain any parabens, fillers, alcohol, or additives. The ingredients are also 72% organic.

I've been using this cream for a few weeks, and it is awesome. It really does brighten my eyes soothe any puffiness. Admittedly my under eye area is very purplish, and I believe it will take a miracle to fix. This cream has lessened the darkness to some degree. I love it because it does work. The first time I used it, it felt refreshing as I patted it on. It also diminished the crinkles forming and fine lines around my eyes. It isn't greasy and absorbs quickly, so it can be worn under makeup without clumping.

Poppy Austin Eye Cream is sold on in a 30ml size. It also comes with a money back guarantee, if you aren't satisfied.
