I love learning about breakthrough skin care miracles that really work! Since I am getting older, I find myself getting obsessed with anti-aging products. I was excited to learn about Bratoxinsta Wrinkle Serum and to get the chance to try it out.
When it comes to banishing wrinkles and crow’s feet, an immediate result is where it’s at. Gone are the days of waiting 8 to 12 weeks for improvement. People want noticeable wrinkle fading within minutes. They want to feel it working and look in the mirror as the change is happening. Brazilian Skin’s line of creams and serums delivers exactly that. It combines science and ingredients from the Amazon rainforest to deliver dermatologist-approved topical age reversal with effects similar to Botulinum Toxin, aka…Botox.® Wrinkles are gone within minutes without needles. Brazilian Skin offers a type Botox result without the appointments, expense and needles. Dr. Vishal Kapoor, a Beverly Hills, CA Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and Medical Advisor to Brazilian Skin explains how this skincare line really delivers results quickly.
Bratoxinsta® The 60 Second Smoother of Lines and Wrinkles
Within 60 seconds of application, the state-of-the-art minerals and antioxidants found in this serum gets to work fast to plump up skin, tighten and smooth out wrinkles. With clinically dosed concentrations of purified and refined clay, Peptides, Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract, Perilla Frutescens (Chinese Extract), Acai Palm Tree Extract, Chinese Basil Plant’s Rosmarinic Acid, known for its ability to plump up tired skin; Bratoxinsta offers the immediate gratification that the countless other creams and serums are missing.
“Women are always telling me that they spend money on creams and serums that do nothing. They play the waiting game and get frustrated as they throw away another cream or serum. With Bratoxinsta, there’s no waiting. You’re getting the highest amounts of these key ingredients possible and when working in concert with one another results are instantaneous,” explains Dr. Kapoor.
The powerful combination of stem-cell, antioxidants from Açai and peptides help to improve long-term appearance of wrinkles and will address sun damage and other issues with skin texture and tone. Some of Bratoxinsta's ingredients will help to tighten the skin on the surface, helping to smooth fine expression lines and blur the appearance of wrinkles. Once applied, the powerful active ingredients will start working on getting your skin smoother, tighter, and more youthful-looking with every use.
Simply dispense a small amount on your fingertip and gently feather it over any wrinkles and expressions lines. Apply to a clean face, allow 60 seconds for effects to begin before applying makeup. “A little goes a very long way with Bratoxinsta. One or two drops on the fingertip will do it. You can actually watch it working in the mirror. This is what sets it aside from other creams touting themselves as ‘Botox in a Bottle,’” says Dr. Kapoor.
Main Ingredients… A Deeper Look
Magnesium Aluminum is a naturally occurring mineral created purified and refined clay, that tightens and smooths the appearance of under-eye puffiness, sagging, and fine lines.
Peptide Complex works to smooth away the look of wrinkles and expression marks.
Stem Cell Complex (Euterpe Oleracea (Acai) Fruit Extract, Perilla Frutescens (Chinese Extract). Native to the Amazon Rainforest, the Acai Palm Tree is renowned its ability to thrive in harsh conditions. The Chinese Basil Plant is rich in Rosmarinic Acid, which is known for its ability to plump up tired skin. These 3 antioxidants help to defend against oxidative stress by effectively disarming radicals.
“Stem cells slow down aging by defending skin against stress and serving as an internal repair system. Stem cells divide without limit allowing them to replenish other cells or migrate to damaged areas to repair tissue,” explains Dr. Kapoor.
Chondrus Crispus (Seaweed) Extract Also known as Irish Sea Moss, Chondrus Crispus contains a hydrating, nutrient-rich blend of vitamins and trace minerals such as sulfur, iodine, magnesium, and selenium.
The Bratoxinsta formula also contains stem cells from the Acai Palm Tree, Basil Plant, and White Oak Plant. In addition, 6 bioactive peptides help smooth the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles by supporting the proteins that weaken with age. These active ingredients work synergistically with the peptides to deliver vital phytonutrients and antioxidants.
What is the recommended age group for Bratoxinsta?
Bratoxinsta is suitable for all age groups. For more mature skin, its innovative formula can help reduce the existing signs of visible aging immediately, while for younger skin, it can help prevent and delay the onset of fine lines and wrinkles. “Women will see significant and rapid improvement to fine lines, wrinkles and sagging. A woman in her 20’s and 30’s will be able to take a preventative approach to their skin care by maintaining tautness and wrinkle free texture longer,” says Dr. Kapoor.
Does it work?
I apply Bratoxinsta to the areas of my face where I see the wrinkles that I want to treat. Thankfully, I don't have that many! I apply a few drops around my lips and on my laugh lines. I dot a little onto my forehead as well. I love the tightening sensation that I feel as the product starts working to tighten my skin. In the day time, I use it before I apply my day creams/serums, and then follow with my foundation. I also use Bratoxinsta at night. I use it at night so that it can be working its wonders on my skin while I sleep. It works very well. My skin definitely looks years younger.

If acne breakouts are still pestering you even though it's been years since you had to cram for a mid-term or final, you're not alone. According to the Journal of American Academy of Dermatology 54% of women 25 and older experience adult acne.
One powerful natural ingredient that hasn't been widely promoted to treat this annoying issue is black cumin seed oil, which is the main ingredient in Zaman Skincare's new Sleeping Beauty Serum.
Completely different from the cumin you cook with, this cumin comes from a plant called Nigella sativa. An antibacterial beast, black cumin seed oil helps eradicate acne since it's bacteria that exacerbates pimples in the first place. It's also rich in anti-inflammatory properties and contains high amounts of thymoquinone, which helps heal acne and acne lesions.
Why else is black cumin seed oil an amazing pimple popping preventer? It's one of the richest oils on earth comprised of over 100 valuable chemicals elements, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals including the nutritional powerhouse Zinc.
Remember, the skin is the last organ in the body to receive any nutrients we take internally, so its important to supplement topically with skincare. Many practitioners suggest taking a Zinc supplement if you’re acne-prone, so black cumin seed oil is a great way to also treat your skin topically.
Zaman Sleeping Beauty Serum is a blend of Cumin Seed and Organic Vitamin C. While the Black Cumin Seed acts as an anti-inflammatory to prevent and heal acne, the Vitamin C helps reduce the appearance of pores and wrinkles, while visibly improving the signs of premature aging, including fine lines, uneven texture, age spots, dryness, and dullness.
I was given the chance to review Zaman Sleeping Beauty Serum and I am completely in awe of it. (I don't tend to break out much, except around my time of the month.) Regardless, I wanted to try this beauty serum due to the fact that I love products that are designed to use while I am asleep. I first tried this product about two weeks ago, after cleansing my face at night. After I applied it, (to my face and neck) it appeared to be very greasy! I was worried for a moment, but my worries quickly subsided after about ten minutes when the serum completely absorbed into my skin. It was not the least bit oily or greasy.
I was amazed at how nicely hydrated my skin felt. I did not even feel the need to apply any additional nightly moisturizing cream. My skin rarely feels this soft with the use of only one product. I awoke to perfectly supple skin that looked very well rested and extremely healthy.
Along with Zaman Sleeping Beauty Serum, I was given the opportunity to try out Zaman Skincare's Rise & Shine Serum. I use this serum on my face and neck after cleansing in the morning, before applying my usual makeup. I was immediately in love with this amazing formula. It creates the most perfect primer for my foundation! The serum absorbs completely into my skin, and I am able to feel a very nice tightening effect. It also supplies my skin with the daily dose of moisture it needs without a hint of oil or grease.
I am not kidding, my skin looks so much younger after using this serum for a couple of weeks now. I really cannot even see any wrinkles or lines on my face.
Rise & Shine Moisturizing Serum is a highly effective formula that noticeably penetrates the deep layer of the dermis, to effectively repair damaged skin while visibly enhancing collagen and promoting elastin production. This scientific formula is geared towards helping tighten and smooth fine lines, wrinkles while delivering radiant moisturized skin.
Available for $80 on Zamanskincare.com, Amazon.com and Ahalife.com.

One of the very best skin care companies I have ever experienced is Rodan+ Fields. I love every single one of their products that I have tried. I was very excited to find out that Rodan + Fields came out with a new product. Their new Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid is truly amazing!
I wear foundation every day no matter what, and when I learned that Rodan + Fields launched their Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid, I couldn't wait to get the chance to try it for myself.
"Introducing our new, groundbreaking tinted Glow Guard, Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Formulated with dermatology-inspired skincare ingredients to deliver a radiant, healthy-looking complexion in six flexible shades. Use as the last step of your skincare routine to protect and perfect the glowing skin you’ve earned.
Why do we call Radiant Defense a Glow Guard? Its unique and proprietary RD3 Complex protects your skin. It helps neutralize the harmful effects of environmental aggressors, repair skin’s natural moisture barrier and protect it from sun damage caused by UVA and UVB rays. Trust your skin to the doctors who’ve gotten it from the get glow."
I love how you have the option to select your matching shade by uploading a photo of yourself to virtually try on different shades of Radiant Defense to find your best match. From their six available shades, I discovered my perfect skin tone match, which is the Sand shade.
From the moment I first applied Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid to my skin, I could tell that it was going to become my new favorite foundation.
After cleansing in the morning, I apply my Perfecting Liquid to my entire face, neck and upper chest area, and blend it gently with my fingertips. (You can also, apply it with your foundation brush or sponge.) I love the light, non-greasy formula that is so easy to blend.
It leaves a beautiful, radiant finish that never looks shiny or oily. It enhances my skin, and gives me a youthful, healthy glow. It looks and feels like a second skin, and yet does not look like I have makeup on my face. It covers all of my imperfections and makes my complexion look flawless. I am thrilled that it contains SPF 30, because I do not need to wear a separate sunscreen product, and my skin in protected and ready to go.
Radiant Defense Perfecting Liquid leaves my skin in better condition than ever. I have never before used a foundation that can make those claims!

I have been learning so much about the important health benefits of probiotics. They are crucial to our body's well-being. But I had never really thought about how probiotics could be beneficial to our skin.
Just as probiotics taken internally work to reduce inflammation and boost the immune system, so do probiotics applied directly to the skin. Skin is bombarded daily with an excess of harsh pollutants, chemicals and free radicals, all of which put our skin – our body’s first line of defense – in a state of exhausted, constant crisis.
Live, active probiotics applied topically provide much needed reinforcements for the good bacteria in the skin’s microbiome while neutralizing the harmful bacteria. This allows the skin to find peace, rebalance and reset for an optimum level of health and vibrancy. It all makes sense, right?
LaFlore Skin Care uses the latest innovations in biotechnology to cultivate the power of probiotics, LaFlore™ ’s patent-pending Probiotic Technology delivers a suspended matrix of live, bioactive time released prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics which activate upon application to bolster skin health. and intuitively balance individual skin microbiome. LaFlore products incorporate an impressive combination of nutrient rich – anti-inflammatory ingredients which get to the root of a problem.
Most probiotic lines have one or two probiotic essences in their products. LaFlore™ uses a multitude of diversified flora within all three products. This matrix of actives is then cultivated into three unique cocktails and custom blended to produce results in three distinct phases of application: cleanse-recharge, treat-recover and moisturize -protect. The more variety of bio-available flora, the more opportunity there is for the skin to achieve a state of peace, balance and better skin health.
I was given the chance to review LaFlore Skin Care, and received the following products:
LaFlore® Probiotic Cleanser – Softens, brightens and balances all skin types. The Live- Active Probiotics has Pineapple extract (Bromelain), Spearmint essential oil and Aloe. I use this moisturizing cleanser in the evening to remove all of my makeup, even my eye makeup. (It doesn't irritate my sensitive eyelids at all. It leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh.
LaFlore® Probiotic Serum Concentrate – Calms, smooths fine lines and wrinkles and boosts the skin’s natural defense system. I apply this serum immediately after cleansing in the evening. This powerhouse serum includes Perilla Seed oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Vitamins A, D, K, E, and Beta Carotene, as well as Hemp Seed oil, Jojoba, Avocado and Squalene. This serum can also be used as a spot treatment for acne and rosacea. (Over a dozen probiotics in the LaFlore Live-Active Probiotic Serum!) It gives my skin that boost of nutrients that it needs.
LaFlore® Probiotic Daily Defense Moisturizer – An aloe-based moisturizer packed with active probiotics, botanical humectants, super-antioxidants, hyaluronic acid and vitamin D3. This moisturizer primes skin for a flawless makeup application while protecting the skin’s barrier function from the degenerative effects of environmental exposure. I use this as both my night and day cream.
For my daily routine, I actually don't even wash my face because the products from the night before are still on my skin, doing their job. Sometimes, I just rinse it with water, and then add the serum and moisturizer before applying my makeup. My skin never breaks out, is never oily, and looks radiant and young!

I love Clarins. Clarins is a brand that I have always admired, and every product I have ever tried from this brand has been heavenly. I was excited to get the chance to review Clarins Double Serum, which, by the way has been on the market for one whole year now!
A serum is a vital step in my daily anti-aging skin care routine. Whether I am getting ready in the morning, or washing my face at night before bed, I always begin with a thorough cleansing. After cleansing, (both morning and night) I always pat my face dry, and immediately follow with a serum before adding my moisturizer, or any further products.
Why is a serum important? A serum is a crucial product because it contains a high concentration of powerful ingredients. Clarins Double serum contains over twenty skin-loving plant ingredients, such as Tumeric extract, which in itself is the best thing ever for our bodies, from the inside out!
Clarins Double Serum is even better than the leading serums. It is a two-in-one serum that is part water, part oil. Water and oil are two essential elements that healthy skin needs. The oil and water are activated upon dispensing, mixing the two separate phases together with a simple pump. I dispense a few drops of each to the palm of my hand and mix them with my fingertips before applying the serum to my face, neck and upper chest. A little goes a long way.
I am amazed at how this formula does not feel greasy on my skin. It absorbs very nicely, and makes my skin feel perfectly hydrated. In fact, I could even stop there, and not follow up with my moisturizer, because my skin feels as if I already have moisturizer on! I have never used a serum that has made my skin feel so amazing.
After using Clarins Double serum as a part of my daily skin care regimen for about 3 weeks now, I am enjoying firmer skin that looks younger and just glows!
It has been on the market for one year now.

When it comes to skin care, I look for products that help me age in reverse. Yes, it is possible! With Rodan + Fields, your skin can actually look younger. It is NOT a bunch of hype! I have been blessed with the opportunity to review Rodan + Fields products once again, and I cannot say enough good things about this company and their miracle products. No other skin care company has given me the results that Rodan+ Fields has.
One sad fact about life is that we all have to age, and I hate that. I plan to do everything in my power to look as young as possible for as long as possible. I have tried out and tested hundreds of different anti-aging products over the years, and Rodan + Fields has proven to be the most effective skin care regimen I have ever used.
I begin my day with washing my face with the Daily Cleansing Mask. I love this cleansing mask because it draws out the impurities from my skin. I simply wet my fingertips, and massage this amazing product onto my face, neck, and upper chest area, and leave it on for about 3-5 minutes before I rinse. I usually rinse it off in the shower. I use it both morning and night. It has such an uplifting, fresh fragrance.
My skin is left feeling soft and purified! I never experience any breakouts or oily skin at all when I use this cleanser morning and night.
The next part of my skin care regimen that I use after cleansing, is the Pore Minimizing Toner. I apply it with a cotton ball both morning and evening. It removes any excess oil, makeup traces and dirt. It makes my pores look invisible, and makes my skin feel fresh.
Next, I apply the Intensive Renewing Serum.It is so satisfying to pop open the little pre-measured capsules that contain the perfect amount of product that I apply to my face, neck and upper chest area. It gives my skin such a soft, yet firming texture. This serum contains vitamin A, which is 20x stronger than Retinol! Who knew? This serum is pure luxury!
The third step is the moisturizer. In the morning, I use the Triple Defense Moisturizer in the morning, which completely hydrates and protects my skin with an SPF of 30, and in the evening I use the Overnight Restorative Cream. My skin is left perfectly hydrated, youthful and radiant!
Lastly, I have found my soul mate of all beauty products, the one and only Lash Boost eyelash serum. I never knew a product could change my life as much as Lash Boost has. I have had people come up to me and actually 'swoon' over my long and lustrous lashes. (That includes two men, shhh! Don't tell my husband!"
The fist photo below is of me, fresh out of the shower (so please excuse my messy freshly washed/towel dried hair.) I wanted to show you what my lashes look like without ANY mascara on them. (Of course I had to put on lip gloss so I wouldn't feel totally naked!) I don't think my camera even shows how long and thick my lashes are. they are shockingly long!
I don't even think this photo below does my lashes justice, but I am not kidding you, I have to DETANGLE my lashes with a dry lash brush every morning before I put on mascara! I have even had to trim them. I LOVE IT!

NaturaBrasil Launches New Product Range – Chronos,
Brazil’s most popular cosmetics company, NaturaBrasil, launches new Chronos skincare line in the US market. Chronos is an #AgePositive skincare line that focuses on the needs of the skin at every life stage. The line consists of three categories that meld Brazil’s rich biodiversity with advanced science – a potent oil-based serum treatment, a trio of life stage specific moisturizers and a five-product daily care system.
Natura’s approach to anti-aging skincare is one of mindful simplicity and empowered acceptance. The Chronos line seeks to change the conversation surrounding age in the context of beauty, promote simplicity within wellness routines and embrace the ever-evolving beauty journey of life. Above all, Natura believes in three main pillars: self-care, caring for others and caring for the planet.
The star product of the line is the Daily Revitalizing Face Oil, a lightweight, enhanced blend of natural oils and esters (including five essential oils with powerful anti-oxidant properties) which restore vitality and radiance to dull, stressed skin caused by daily aggressors such as excess sun and pollution.
Brazilian Biodiversity Ingredients + Advanced Science:
- Brazilian Sapucainha: a Brazilian tree with seeds high in essential fatty acids that inhibit skin damage caused by external aggressions
- Polyphenols: extracted from essential ginger oil, stimulate the skin's natural antioxidant mechanism to provide further protection from environmental damage and improve skin vitality – neutralizes 91% of free radicals

- Energizing Face Cream, 30+ – lightweight, multi-tasking moisturizer hydrates, energizes and protects skin to ease the look of stress and fatigue, using Jambu Extract exclusively developed by NaturaBrasil research, and polyphenols with 9.5% active ingredients

Chronos’ final category focuses on daily maintenance and cleansing, with five complementary products that gently remove impurities from the skin while keeping moisture levels balanced.

- Creamy Foaming Cleanser –formulated with Cupuaçu Butter, this mild rich cleanser removes impurities, while maintaining the skin’s natural balance
- Bi-phase Makeup Remover – gentletwo-phase formula effectively removes makeup, and is enriched with natural humectants that protect skin's moisture barrier

- Hydra-nourish Moisturizer –daily moisturizer hydrates and nourishes skin with vitamin E, rice peptides and Cupuaçu Butter while protecting it from damaging free radicals
My thoughts: I have been using NaturaBrasil Chronos skincare products for three weeks now. My goal is to keep my skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible. By using anti-aging skincare products such as the Chronos skincare line, I am headed in the right direction to achieve younger looking skin.
I love the Gentle Cleansing Mousse. I use it at night in the shower to remove all of my makeup, as well as any dirt and oil on my face and neck. It cleanses perfectly, and does not irritate my eyes. It feels nice and light on my skin.
Each morning, I begin my day by cleansing my face with the Creamy Foaming Cleanser. It leaves my skin clean and gives it that extra hydration that my skin needs each day.
Every morning and night I apply the Firming and Radiance Face Cream, 45+. This cream is the perfect formula for both morning and night. It is not too heavy for daytime, and it is just the right consistency for a great night facial cream. My skin is renewed and visibly firmer.
Chronos skincare line retails for ($17.50- $62.00)
