I love learning about skin care companies that I hadn't heard of before. I was recently browsing online for lash enhancing serums, and I discovered Luma By Laura. I was given the chance to review a few of their products, which are perfect for re-vamping your summertime beauty routine.
First, there is LumaLash – Rapid Eyelash Growth Serum with Red Grape Peptide for Longer Looking Lashes & Brows. I am always on the lookout for a lash growth serum that isn't too expensive, and really works!
POWERFUL PEPTIDE GROWTH SERUM - Stem cell complex that acts as a growth serum, making your eyelashes appear longer and thicker.
- STRENGTHENS YOUR LASHES - This Innovative Formula nourishes skin at the base while moisturizing and conditioning each strand, which helps reduce breakage and encourages a look of longer and plumper lashes.
- ANTIOXIDANT SUPPORT FOR WEAK AND SPARSE LASHES - this formula harnesses the power of stem cells derived from the skin of red grapes, which provide strong antioxidant benefits.
- WORKS AS A MOISTURIZER - Just as hair needs a conditioner, so do lashes. Glycerin, a humectant, ensures that the delicate lash area is deeply hydrated, and also works to prevent any valuable moisture from escaping.
I have been using my Rapid Eyelash Growth Serum for about six weeks now, and have noticed that my lashes are fuller. I can't wait to see them grow! For now, they are definitely more lush.
With the weather getting warmer, my skin has been getting quite greasy! I had been getting rather large zits on my chin, and I hate that! I needed something to help reduce the oiliness and to keep my pores clear. LumaMask – Therapeutic Zinc & Sulfur Mask With Salicylic Acid to Deep Clean Pores for Blackhead Removal does the following:
- BEST BLACKHEAD REMOVER - Contains a combination of therapeutic bentonite clay (acts as a dirt magnet), salicylic acid and sulfur which remove dirt, toxins and impurities from your facial pores.
- FIGHTS AWAY BLEMISHES - LumaMask's effective clay based formula targets blemishes so that you enjoy fresh, soft and glowing skin after just a single use!
- REDUCES SWELLING & REDNESS - Uses the natural healing properties of zinc oxide to help calm, soothe and reduce the appearance of redness on sensitive skin types.
- EXFOLIATES DEAD SKIN - Our formula uses salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid) to help dissolve impactions. It reduces the appearance of impactions and large pores by exfoliating and releasing impurites.
- REMOVES OIL & IMPURITIES FROM YOUR SKIN - Uses zinc oxide to absorb excess oil and reduces sebum buildup within the follicles.
I use this amazing mask once each week. I simply smooth a thin layer over my clean skin, avoiding my eye area. I leave on my face for 10-15 minutes and remove it with a damp wash cloth. My skin is left feeling fresh, clean and oil free. I haven't seen any zits since I have started using this product.
Another really fun, and perfect for summer beauty staple that I have been enjoying is TempiTats Temporary Tattoos. they are just a fun and non-committed way to express yourself!
The idea for TempiTats started in the spring of 2015 at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Co-Founder, Erica Meyer, noticed the lack of design selections of metallic temporary tattoos her fellow music festival-goers were wearing.
After searching online, she was unhappy with how expensive and limiting the selections of these jewelry-inspired metallic tattoos were and decided to create her own designs that were not only unique and beautiful but also affordable. From this, TempiTats was born.
Erica, the creative mind behind TempiTats, is hard at work coming up with unique designs that continue to appeal to anyone and for any occasion. TempiTats now has hundreds of designs in gold, silver, black, turquoise, and so many other colors! She's enlisted the help of her fiancé Dave who is the marketing guru and responsible for running the business.
I received samples of TempiTats to review, and tried out several gorgeous designs on different parts of my body, and asked my husband what he thought. Part of him thought it was sexy, the other part of him thought it was funny. I guess I am just a little old for these types of things. I could see wearing one to a fun-outdoor festival, to add a touch of uniqueness to your summer style.
I gave a few of them to my twenty-one year old daughter, and she plans to sport her favorite designs when the weather gets a little warmer where she lives in Utah.

I apply it first thing in the morning after cleansing, and it keeps my skin moist and supple all day long. It does not interfere with my foundation, and it does not leave my skin looking like an oil slick. It is actually the perfect base for my makeup.
I also apply it after cleansing at night. It is the perfect night cream. It makes my skin looks youthful and radiant. My skin was starting to feel dry with the cooler temperatures, but my Brallywood Butta saved the day. My fine lines and wrinkles are vastly improved.

My main skin concern is aging. I don't want to look old! Who does? I received a sample of Dermaheal 2 Week Miracle Redesign Anti-Aging kit to review.
The 2 Week Miracle is a unique skin care system. Containing products that encourage intensive skin care, the system will encourage the skin’s natural recovery function. 2 Week Miracle is designed to help restore youthful skin texture and is quick and very effective. Now you can indulge yourself at home with an intensive 2 week treatment system working 24 hours a day to awaken and revitalize your skin.
2 Weeks Miracle Redesign Anti-Aging is a complete easy four-step regimen, which may fight the first signs of aging such as fatigue, wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
Here are the products in the 2 Week Miracle Regime, and how they worked for me:
Redesign Miracle Solution- Beautiful healthy skin begins with balancing the skin’s pH level, correcting complexion imbalance, whilst toning and clarifying. Our peptide solution replenishes dry skin, soothing and preparing skin by increasing the absorption ratio at a cellular level.
My Experience- I use this product every morning and evening after cleansing. I pump 3-4 drops onto a cotton ball and wipe my entire face, neck and chest area. I wait until it absorbs before going onto the next step. This product makes mmy skin feel so fresh and renewed.
Redesign Miracle Serum- Infusing aging skin cells with renewed activity, the Redesign Miracle Serum conditions through peptides, antioxidants and natural ingredients, helping the skin to recover volume and protect it from environmental damage. The Redesign Miracle Serum lightly caresses the skin, allowing you to immediately feel a tingling firming effect – assisting in visibly reducing the look of the fine lines and wrinkles.
My Experience- I use this lovely serum every night and evening, using two pumps onto my fingertips and applying to my entire face, neck and chest area. I love how it absorbs completely into my skin.
Redesign Miracle Cream –The Miracle Redesign Cream helps regenerate new skin cells through increased regulation of collagen elastin and?hyaluronic acid, reducing and preventing wrinkles from forming and restoring suppleness and luster to the skin.
My Experience- I also use this product every morning and evening. I use 2-3 pumps of it, and I blend it all over my face, neck and chest. It also absorbs well and leaves my skin looking gorgeous and smooth. It feels so amazing and I can really see a difference in my skin's texture. It looks tighter and is really glowing!
Redesign Miracle Eye Contour – The eyes are the first place to show premature aging as the skin in the eye area is fragile and requires special attention. Redesign Miracle Eye Contour assists in treating the whole delicate eye area, acts on puffiness, dark circles and fine lines by nourishing with a formula which gently helps lift, smooth and brighten tired puffy eyes.
My Experience- I love this eye contour cream. It really makes my eyes look well rested. I do not have wrinkles around my eyes yet, but I can clearly see how it helps with puffiness. It really tightens up the eye area.
What a refreshing, replenishing and uplifting facial treat for skin that needs a boost! I love Dermaheal 2 Week Miracle Redesign Anti-Aging Kit. After using it for two weeks my skin definitely has a firmer texture. It looks like perfection! I even received a compliment from my son's friend's dad. He told me I look like I am no older than 31. That is awesome because I am ten years older than that! Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone!
See? No wrinkles!
