Bee Venom In Anti-Aging Serum! My Review of 'Beetinol'

As a woman who has seen her fair share of birthdays roll around, I know what needs to be done to keep oneself looking their best and staying energetic. It includes eating the right foods, avoiding stress, and getting plenty of rest and exercise. Easy to say, but not easy to do. It takes work to stay healthy! Another very important thing is to give your skin extra nourishment from products that use a variety of natural and effective ingredients to preserve the youthfulness of your skin. I've found one that I really like--It's called Beetinol. Its name refers to two of the ingredients within this serum.

I received product for review purposes

This incredible anti-aging serum has a weightless formula which absorbs quickly and hydrates the skin, increasing collagen production, reducing fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the skins elasticity and general health on a cellular level.

Highlights of the active ingredients:

Bee Venom naturally increases blood circulation, skin hydration, and the natural production of collagen which firms the skin and smooths out wrinkles. As a matter of fact, in a published study bee venom was shown to clinically improve facial wrinkles by decreasing total wrinkle area, total wrinkle count, and average wrinkle depth
Retinol works on a molecular level to tighten and tone the skins with antioxidants reducing fine lines and preventing new wrinkles.
Peptide Complex are powerful anti-aging proteins which encourage collagen production and a firmer more even complexion.

Hyaluronic Acid occurs naturally in the body and improves the skins texture and smoothness, but natural aging and other environmental factors decrease the body’s level.

Vitamin K reduces naturally occurring inflammation in the skin by strengthening and hydrating your skin cells promoting an even skin tone.

Vitamin C is essential for many cellular skin functions working to combat free radicals and boost collagen levels.

My Experience With Beetinol:

Over the course of 10+ years of reviewing different beauty products, I have come to expect a certain quality from the products that I review. And that quality is overwhelmingly good! After all, I don't review products that I wouldn't be happy to use on a regular basis myself. But I was really pleasantly surprised at the initial experience with Beetinol. It is really light, and sinks into the skin quickly. The smell is pleasant but not overwhelming. And my skin feels protected and hydrated all day! There was a smoothness to it that was really surprising. At age 59, I don't expect miracles but this seemed to be as close to a miracle as possible!

I should have known that I would have a good experience with this product. After all, I have reviewed some of this company's other quality beauty products. See my reviews on Alightener Teeth Whitening Foam, Argon Oil and Longer Lash. Each of these products has not disappointed and has exceeded my expectations!

'Summer Beauty Musts' Cash & Product #Giveaway

Summer is so here!! Which means deck weather--sitting outside with friends and family, sipping your favorite drinks, enjoying the evening breezes after a hot day!  You want to look your best because this is the time of year when your skin and hair are the most exposed! Summer is also when your skin and hair get fried because of all the sun, sand, and surf. Treat it with care, and don't contribute to the maltreatment by using harsh products on it. The 3 areas below should be given special attention during the summer months and beyond for your best look, whatever that may be! Green Esthetics has you covered in all 3 areas!

Moisturized Skin and Hair. Pure Argan Oil is one of the very best things you can do for not only your hair, but your skin!  Green Esthetics has the very highest quality Argan Oil available, aside from actually traveling to Morocco and buying it straight from the woman at the market, who harvested it from the tree and processed it just yesterday! See a few things that I have discovered Argan Oil to be useful for here! It's surprising how many things there are!

Beautiful Eyes Start With Healthy Eyelashes. Another thing that is always desirable are long, healthy and beautiful eyelashes that don't look like they are fringes off a Persian rug! I don't understand why people are going so over the top! I get it, you went and had your eyelashes done! Yay!  But what really looks good is when you look at someone and their eyelashes are subtly enhanced and naturally thick, framing the eyes and accentuating them. The eyes are what need to be the center of focus, not the lashes! Longer Lash is an amazing and natural product that is perfect for keeping your eyelashes in perfect condition throughout the summer. And it really works, see my review!
A Gorgeous Smile. Everyone knows that a smile starts with the eyes, but it continues with white and healthy teeth. Using harsh whiteners isn't the answer because it can lead to the breakdown of the gums, enamel, and even the gut, which won't help your beauty routine! Green Esthetics has you covered with a whitening gel that gets your teeth white easily and safely! It comes with your own do-it-yourself tray! I have been using this whitener for a period of 3 months and I love it! Below is a picture of me with my husband cropped out as we took a selfie on our first bike ride of the season. I love how my smile is fairly white because I had used the whitening gel a few days before. No retouches needed!

Argan Oil For Massive Beauty Benefits!

I, like you, have read and heard a lot about breakthrough natural products. When folks start touting the benefits of these natural products, I tend to be a tad skeptical because I think it must be the newest fad! I think that it will be here for a time, and not be talked about much after the next fad arrives. There have been a few things, however, that have come and stayed because of legitimate benefits. Examples come to mind such as coconut oil, kale, and green smoothies. These natural products are so healthy and the benefits have been proven! Argan oil is one of these remarkable natural products that is almost miraculous in its proven benefits!  

The product comes from Morocco and is the "liquid gold" of the region. The oil comes from the kernels inside the nuts. It takes a lot of hard work to remove the liquid and can take up to 8 hours of labor to remove the oil from the nuts. It was once a well-kept beauty secret among Moroccan women, but now the cat's out of the bag and women like you and me can benefit.

There are two ways argan oil is utilized. The first is culinary. In order to have a good tasting oil, the nuts need to be roasted during the extraction process. The second is for beauty. The raw oil is extracted and used on hair, nails, skin, and lips.

Naturally Beautiful Eyelashes With Green Esthetics Longer Lash Serum + 40% Discount Code

She was in my 5th grade class, far too young to be worrying about mascara or false eyelashes. Every time she looked down, her eyelashes shadowed her cheekbones. When she looked sideways, her lashes were outlined in her silhouette. Her eyelashes were so long and I was immensely fascinated! I wondered how I might get my eyelashes that long! 
(This post was facilitated by Green Esthetics and I was provided product for review purposes! All opinions are my own! This post may contain affiliate links.)
 It wasn't until at least 2 more years that I found out about mascara and the lengthening effects it has on lashes. What in the world would women do without mascara? They would most likely have longer lashes! What a paradox! The thing that magnifies our lash length can ultimately dry them out and cause breakage! I know that is what happened over time to me! My eyelashes started to break off and at one point I barely had any!

Most people don't have naturally long eyelashes (myself included), but there are plenty of ways to get long lashes besides mascara. One popular trick these days is to get extensions. The advantage of extensions is that you can choose the length and thickness you want and you don't need to rely on mascara...until the extensions wear off. If one isn't careful, you might end up with lashes that look like the fringe on a rug! I've seen some really unattractive and unnatural looking extensions! Really not a good look. Why would you want overly long, thick, dark eyelashes that could possibly age you? There is such a thing as too much! A nice, natural look is the best! Another drawback to extensions, for me personally, is that I don't like sitting or laying for 2 hours with someone hovering over me applying individual eyelashes. It seems so tedious! And the cost is pretty steep! Regular maintenance is required---more tediousness! Not to mention the risk of infection or allergic reaction!

What I CAN settle for is an all-natural eyelash growth serum that gets results. I was given the opportunity to try Longer Lash by Green Esthetics. I love it. By putting it on twice daily, once before bed and once before putting on make-up in the morning, you can stimulate the natural growth of your eyelashes. 
Longer Lash contains the most natural ingredients in the most optimal formulation, making lash growth almost inevitable! Some of the more familiar ingredients include emu oil, argon oil, castor oil, and copper peptide. But there are also natural growth stimulants, vitamins, and proteins. These are all designed and proven to stimulate natural lash growth. It doesn't contain potentially harmful ingredients such as propelyne glycol, phenoxyethanol, or parabens.

My husband was my photographer, with only a little arm twisting. I know you want to see all the eye photos we took, but let's just leave it at a few! 

 One of the things I was a bit nervous about was eye color change. I have heard that some eyelash growth serums actually change eye color if it is blue. I asked about it and was told that this is only for the prescription serums, with chemicals. I was very pleased with my results and while I still feel like I need to wear mascara, my lashes look so much fuller and thicker. I used the formula for about 4 weeks (best results are between 2 - 3 months of consistent use) and I still have 3/4 of the tube left, which shows that it goes a long way. Basically the cost is about .40/day, much less than eyelash extensions, which average about $3.50/day and maintenance every 2 - 3 weeks! It all boils down to your patience and your desire to have natural vs. false lashes! What is your personal preference to get longer lashes? Extensions, mascara only, or serums? Any other ways you know of?
