Birthday Week: Au Natural Beauty

Hey beauty lovers!

I'm turning the scary 3-1 this coming Sunday and I am starting to feel the effects of age. Don't laugh, it's true... I was one of those lucky teens who never had pimples, breakouts and acne growing up. But now I am starting to notice the need to take good care of my skin. So for the next five days, I am going to go through my beauty and makeup routine with y'all covering: (1) cleansers/au natural beauty, (2) foundation/bronzer, (3) eyes, (4) lips and (5) a peak inside my purse.
For my third post, I want to talk about two new products I have had the pleasure of testing out this past week...
First upOZ Naturals Anti Aging Serum. I am 30, almost 31 (Sunday is my birthday) and it's a sad truth that I am starting to get those dreadful bags under my eyes and dryer skin. Boo hiss, right?
BEFORE photo (no makeup or cleansers)
OZ Naturals Anti-Aging Serum
OZ Natural's Anti-Aging Serum is an organic Vitamin C serum clinically proven to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, give you a much smoother and even skin tone/texture and leave your skin youthful and radiant.  Wouldn't it be fabulous if we could all turn back the clock and enjoy the skin of our youth? Or at least have appreciated it more at the time?  Sounds great, right? That's what I thought so when I was given the chance to try it out thanks to Brandbacker, I jumped at the chance. Obviously a week is not a long time to test out a new product but they guarantee that you will see brighter and more radiant skin instantly.

AFTER Photo (no makeup/only OZ Naturals)
I did a before and after photo (see photos above) and was surprised and impressed to actually see a difference - in the same lighting (don't you hate those before/after pics that are taken in different lighting or at a different angle). The skin as a whole was brighter (wow!) and I loved how the OZ Naturals Anti-Aging Serum had a light and water-like consistency so I didn't feel like I was caking product onto my face. Also, it does NOT burn and my skin is very sensitive so it has been none to rebel against various beauty products.

If you are like me, and interested in finding something to add to your beauty regiment that brightens and rejuvenates your face, I would happily suggest checking out OZ Natural's Anti-Aging Serum on Amazon. They promise a 30-day money back guarantee that you will see results so what's not to love about that?

Product #2: Azure Naturals Cucumber Infused Eye-Brightening Gel. Again, the same problems. Bags under the eyes and that horrid tired eye look. So this time when Tomoson generously offered to let me test out Azure Naturals' eye brightening gel, I said yes.
This before photo is 'scary' so please no gasps or cries of alarm, lol. I was tired and you can definitely see the bags under my eyes but what better time to try out the gel, right? So bear with the before photo in anticipation of the after photo. I promise it isn't nearly as scary looking, lol.
Obviously this is only after one use of Azure Naturals' Cucumber infused eye brightening gel but I can already see a difference. Can you? I used the gel on my eyelids, under my eyes and on the corners of my eyes similar to how you would use a highlighting pen (see: Mary Kay for example) and definitely saw a brightening around my eyes and the bags weren't quite as scary looking, no?
The application process couldn't be easier. You squirt and rub - absorbs into your skin with great ease - and that's that. For optimal results, they recommend two doses a day (once in the AM and again in the PM) and even suggest using it all over your face if you so desire but since I was pairing this with OZ Naturals I didn't see the need to do so. Again, no irritation and my skin didn't feel like a cake being overly frosted.
Are you interested in trying out Azure Naturals' eye brightening gel? The gel is available at Amazon and incredibly has a 1 Year Money-Back Guarantee! Wow, right? So where can you possibly go wrong with this? Again, in case you are still in doubt... Two more "after" photos. The one on the left is from the first day and the one on the right was taken today (a week later).
 What are your favorite beauty products?
