Trilane Retinol+Vitamin C Anti Aging Moisturizer Review

Hello beautiful!

I wanted to do a review for you all today on yet another vitamin C product...but trust me, this one is unlike any you've ever seen on the market!

I use this product after I wash my face as a serum/moisturizer. There isn't any funky smells in it so I can sleep soundly at night without any irritating headaches. It's a liquid moisturizer and, even though it's main purpose is for anti aging, I've been seeing results like smaller pores, less acne, clear skin and brightness!

The Claims:
  • Trilane Retinol + Vitamin C with squalane smoothes and evens out skin texture
  • Speeds turnover of new skin cells and diminishes brown spots and unclogs pores
  • Reduces fine lines, wrinkles and protects your skin from environmental damage
  • Minimizes and unclogs pores, plus gentle enough for everyday use
  • Distributed by Healthy Directions, known for its stringent quality control measures and Triple Testing Methodology which have led to a spotless safety record for more than 20 years

Developed by Healthy Directions who brought you the original all-natural squalane beauty oil, we've made Trilane even better now by adding a special blend of gentle, yet effective, retinol and vitamin C. This new "golden oil" gives you everything original Trilane offers, plus age-fighting and skin-renewing antioxidants to leave your skin smoother, more even, and less wrinkled, for a more radiant, youthful glow. Known for its ability to reduce fine lines, diminish brown spots, and speed natural cell turnover, retinol can often be a source of frustration for women who after use, experience dry, flaky, irritated skin. The good news is that with New Trilane Retinol + Vitamin C, you don't have to worry about these harsh side effects! Using a proprietary blend of retinol, vitamin C, and key botanicals, combined with the ultra-hydrating squalane and firming jojoba esters found in original Trilane, this new powerful antioxidant-packed oil gently hydrates and improves dryness, something other retinol products have a hard time doing. Plus, cucumber and licorice extracts work to help soothe and calm the skin. Silky, but nongreasy, this new 100% natural golden oil also smoothes skin texture, goes deep into the skin to unclog pores, boosts collagen, reduces the appearance of brown spots, AND delivers a powerhouse of gentle exfoliation benefits to help keep your skin fresh and new. Plus, its powerful antioxidant properties help ward off future damage from environmental stresses on your skin. And, you'll feel the difference within minutes! To help brighten and clarify the skin and promote collagen, we've added in vitamin C. Combined with retinol, this powerful antioxidant helps reduce unwanted irritation associated with retinol-only products. This new beauty oil packs a great value, especially when compared to department store retinol products. Plus, it's gentle enough to use as part of your everyday Trilane skincare routine.
Currently, it's on sale for $42.49 on amazon:

If you purchase it today, you can get it for 20% off!!! CODE: SAVERETC

Until Next Time,

Okay...I may have been keeping a big secret on how I make money while online shopping. It's so easy and I don't even have to think about it. I just click this link and click the store I want to shop at...they have pretty much every online store you can possibly think of! It's called Ebates..or your money saving BFF/sugardaddy/lover. I just proceed with my normal online shopping routine: browse, love, add to cart, checkout, done. Automatically, Ebates will give you the amount of cash back percentage offered by a store! (Example...say I bought $45 worth of Forever21 and the cashback percentage was 5.0%...I would get $2.25 back from that order!!!) Who needs coupons when you can AUTOMATICALLY get cash back for your purchases!


I can't believe that I just now found out about Ebates because I missed a million chances to get cash back for my other orders. Don't make the same mistake I did, I highly highly HIGHLY suggest you get yourself an Ebates account. The best part about Ebates is it's FREE. And right now, if you sign up using this link, you will be able to get $5 CASH BACK AUTOMATICALLY!!!!

I am so excited right now about Ebates which is why I wanted to share this new information with you (and talking in a casual tone using a ton of capitalization haha)

Until next time,

Latest skincare obsession! (ft. Instanatural)

Hello beautiful!

Do you want to know how to keep your skin and hair in prime condition? Of course you do! These two areas of the body are the first signs of age in our appearance and it is important to use the proper products to maintain healthiness in them. I've recently become obsessed with the brand Instanatural and all the products they have to offer. 

Instanatural is an all natural skincare brand that uses high quality, natural ingredients and offers their products online at very affordable prices (like a dream right?!) That's one of the main reasons why I love this brand. Yes, their pricing is very kind to my wallet, but the fact that they don't use harsh chemicals, alcohols, parabens, and sulfates makes it even better! You need to know what you are putting on your skin. And Instanatural makes you feel secure because you know exactly what is inside each product.

A few of my favorite products include (in no particular order):

Their Vitamin C Serum smells so fresh and citrusy! I love applying this before my moisturizer and I noticed that it helps fade acne scars, dark spots, unevenness, and dullness! The medicine-dropper container is so convenient and looks super cute!


Bye-Bye dark under-eyes! This product goes on so smoothly, making applying concealer not a hassle! The ingredients don't irritate my eyes, and it instantly depuffs my eyes! This is perfect when I don't want to show up to an event or even class looking like a zombie! I like to store this in the fridge (not freezer!!) to give it an extra cooling effect!


This is by FAR one of my favorite products ever. I wish I could lay in a bathtub full of this super soft cream! It has a lovely smell, I can't seem to describe it! It's amazing for dry areas, but I use this on my thighs, especially when I wear shorts. I don't get that rough "thigh rub" feeling. It feels oh so soft and gives me "baby soft" skin!


I like to treat myself to "spa days". I use this product about once a week especially during these "spa days" because it gives my skin an amazing cleanse and detoxifies it from all the harsh chemicals that I use all the time (like makeup, and exposure to the environment) I love how it's 100% natural The consistency is not like any that I've tried! It's like a gel almost! Great for acne-prone skin, or super dirty skin! Not to mention, the tub is huge!!!  $29.75

All of their products can be purchased on Amazon! This is very convenient for those who want a one stop shop or have amazon prime and can receive free 2-day shipping! If not, you can always purchase their products from their website: . They are so nice and offer FREE SHIPPING on orders $25+

They have so many other products on their website and I have tried so many of them! All of them have given me a positive review on their company. Trust me, GO AND CHECK THEM OUT! You will love these products, and PLEASE let me know if you try any of their products and have any other recommendations. I haven't tried all of their products out so I am always looking for some new favorites!

Until Next Time,

Hello everyone!

I know what you're thinking, "EW GREEN JUICES LOOK LIKE SEWAGE WASTE". And I'm going to be completely honest, 2 years ago, I thought the exact same thing. However, ever since I made a lifestyle change (eating healthy, working out, being conscience of what I'm doing to my body), I began to explore the realm of wholesome ingredients that I need to incorporate into my diet. I recently got my own Nutribullet, and I absolutely love it! You can make pretty much anything you want with it...smoothies, nice cream, soups, dressings, shakes, doughs...anything!

Today, I wanted to share with you a nutrient-packed, vitamin potent, smoothie that tastes absolutely fruity and delicious! I drink it mostly once a day! It's a vibrant green shade because of the Spirulina Powder by Sari Foods inside of it. It also contains a blast of extra Vitamin C because of the Vitamin C Powder by Sari Foods. These two products can be purchased on amazon ( and Let me tell you why I chose these products to put into daily green smoothie!

Sari Food's Organic Spirulina Powder contains only 100% organic, pure spirulina powder. Spirulina is one of the top superfoods that is starting to get a lot of attention with celebrities, models, and even people at home who want to keep their body in prime condition! it benefits the inside of your body (digestion, detoxification, cell generation, etc.) as well as the outside of your body (skin, hair, figure, nails, etc.) Click here for full details on Sari Food's Organic Spirulina Powder

The Claims:
  • OPTIMIZE YOUR HEALTH WITH NATURE'S MOST PERFECT MULTIVITAMIN. With over 100 naturally occurring and bioavailable vitamins & nutrients, Sari Foods Spirulina contains more than 60% protein and is a non-synthetic source of iron, calcium, magnesium, selenium, beta-carotine, B12, chlorophyll, phytonutrients, antioxidants and essential amino acids (GLA, Omega 3, 6 & 9s).
  • STRENGTHEN YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM. Organic Spirulina is the most nutrient dense food known to humankind and works miracles in the body by helping to balance your pH and reduce Inflammation - which is the root of most disease. This nutritional content is immuno-amazing!
  • FIGHT AGING & FREE RADICALS. This miracle from the sea has more antioxidant activity than 5 servings of fruits and vegetables and 3900% more beta carotene than carrots, packing a powerful antioxidant punch that promotes skin health and cell regeneration while providing protection from cell-damaging molecules absorbed by the body through pollution, poor diet, injury, or stress.
  • IMPROVE ENERGY, MOOD & METABOLISM. Organic Spirulina elevates your energy by unlocking sugar from your cells so it does not get stored as fat. The deep green color of Spirulina comes from a high concentration of Chlorophyll which absorbs its pure energy from sunlight and is considered nature's most effective energy booster, giving you instant and all-day energy.
Sari Food's Organic Spirulina Powder can be purchased here for only $23.95 for a 16 oz bag!

Sari Food's Organic Vitamin C Powder is derived from Acerola Cherries, a high source of Vitamin C (Equivalent to 65 oranges!) It is 100% food based and natural. Vitamin C is very good for your body, just like Spirulina Powder. It aids in absorption of nutrients, which is why I love to use it in conjunction with my Spirulina Powder, so that all of the vitamins and minerals are fully absorbed. Click here for full details on Sari Food's Organic Vitamin C Powder. 

The Claims:

  • PRIORITIZE LONG TERM HEALTH WITH NATURAL OVER SYNTHETIC. Many Vitamin C supplements (like ascorbic acid and calcium ascorbate) contain isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C that is highly toxic and may cause you more harm than good. Sari Foods 100% food based vitamin C is nature's complete complex, providing you with all of the benefits of this miracle vitamin without compromising your body or health. And rest assured, our Vitamin C powder is also organic!
  • REDUCE THE SEVERITY & DURATION OF COLDS. Natural Vitamin C is the missing piece of the puzzle to your body's immune system, offering protection against colds and reducing the threat of nearly every virus known to man. Vitamin C is also a natural antihistamine which means it even helps keep allergies, asthma and inflammation in check!
  • TURN BACK TIME. Vitamin C plays an important role in collagen production and cell regeneration, anti-aging's two greatest secrets, helping to reduce wrinkles as your skin retains greater elasticity and firmness.
  • PROTECT YOURSELF. With extreme antioxidant activity, Organic Vitamin C fights free radicals, protecting you from the cell-damaging molecules absorbed by the body through pollution, poor diet, injury, or stress. Sufficient levels of vitamin C are also required for the synthesis of stress hormones (like adrenaline), which plays a crucial role in countering the ill effects of stress.
  • GUARD AGAINST DISEASE. Since our body doesn't produce it, natural Vitamin C is the most important vitamin you can consume for optimal health as it is shown to help reduce many degenerative conditions.
  • Source:
    Sari Food's Organic Vitamin C Powder can be purchased here for only $29.95 for a 6 oz bag!

    What I love about Sari Foods is that they only use whole foods to make their products (no additives, gmo's...or any other unnecessary garbage) Their products are natural, high quality and not as expensive as the ones you can find at health food stores. They also offer free shipping on their products via amazon! The only thing I have to mention, is that the packaging is very difficult to close. So, I suggest placing your opened bags inside a larger ziploc bag so that it won't get everywhere. 

    So, onwards to the recipe!

    -Fresh, Organic Spinach
    -Handful of Organic Mango Chunks
    -3 pieces of Pineapple Chunks
    -1 Tblspoon Sari Food's Spirulina Powder
    -1 Tsp. Sari Food's Vitamin C Powder
    -1/2 cup pure orange juice
    -Green Tea (fill to the top!)

    Blend away!

    Look at that vibrant green! All those nutrients ready to be absorbed into your body! No artificial colors, dyes, additives...NOTHING!
