Weather changes can be brutal on aging skin, leaving it dry and irritated while causing a dull and older appearance. Its’ time to go into hydration overdrive mode. Want a rich cream that turns back time and still absorbs quickly? Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream contains cruelty-free, natural, hydrating and treating ingredients yet it goes on light and silky, absorbing into the skin with no residue, resulting in just a dewy glow while treating skin to anti-aging goodness.
If you suffer from wrinkles and adult acne, finding a good moisturizer is difficult. If you seek a cruelty-free one with natural ingredients, it becomes even more difficult. Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream is a cruelty-free cream that is highly moisturizing and soothing while not promoting acne breakouts. It is a delicate balance to find a moisturizer that treats anti-aging and soothes skin without further clogging pores or promoting more acne. The ingredients not only do not cause acne but help heal it.
StyleChicks regulars know we are huge proponents of Hyaluronic Acid for its’ amazing ability to hydrate until the skin is plump, as well as its’ ability to assist other active ingredients. Hyaluronic Acid has the capability of pulling moisture into the skin, and active ingredients along with it. Any treating ingredient penetrates deeper when paired with Hyaluronic Acid.
Apricot Oil is outstanding for the skin. In traditional oriental medicine, apricot oil has been used to treat both acne and dry, flaking skin. It is nourishing, soothing and hydrating yet is so lightweight that it absorbs quickly without a greasy residue or film.
It is high in unsaturated fats and Vitamin K, which can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and discoloration. Vitamin E and A moisturizes and nourishes dry and mature skin and improve skin elasticity.
Jojoba is very similar to parts of our skin in chemical structure. A soothing carrier oil that nourishes skin, softens scars and makes them more pliable, and helps skin retain existing moisture as well as preserving skin elasticity. It does not cause acne or clog pores even though it works very similar to sebum keeps skin soft. Made of 98% monounsaturated fats so it can penetrate deeply, Jojoba absorbs well and does some of its’ best work when paired with other active ingredients.
Squalene an emollient and anti-oxidant that is a lipid-based moisturizer. It is seen in many high-end brands (read: pricey) skin products, especially those targeted for use around the eyes and lip area. This is with good reason, as Squalene is highly effective in treating fine expression lines around the lips and eyes like crow’s feet.
It is a natural part of sebum, which, like Jojoba, is a building block of your skin looking young and well moisturized. We tend to think of sebum as a bad thing, but that is only when it is trapped in pores or under dead, dry skin cells, where it can become a component of acne. Squalene is actually especially good for acne prone and oily skin.
INITIAL IMPRESSION: Dries down quickly, leaves skin feeling soft, not greasy. Fine lines and not so fine lines (read eleven lines and smile lines) look softer and more supple after application. Skin looks healthy.
There is no detectable scent, which I prefer, especially around my eyes.
Only a pump or two is needed for the entire face and eye area.
It does not pill over serums or under sunscreen. It dries down well so it’s suitable for use under makeup. My undereye concealer goes on smoother with this cream as a base than many primers intended for the purpose of being used as a base.
Surface dry and flaky skin tends to slough off during application, I particularly like using this after exfoliating.
MY RESULTS WITH REGULAR USE
We tested the cream for several weeks to see long-term benefits. This includes how the skin looks after regular use when I have no product or makeup on my freshly washed face before any cream is applied.
Fine lines do look softer and less deep. My face is less dry, more supple, and there are far less redness and irritation from my topical treatments. A few acne scar marks look softer. There are no dry, flaky patches. My skin has a subtle glow.
Using the Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream on acne keeps skin free from flakes that may inhibit the absorption of topical acne treatments. It is also easier to conceal a blemish when it is less flaky, red and irritated.
Maybe there’s an optical deflector property of the dewy moist look of the skin or the smoothing of the fine lines, but my dark circles seem not as dark as usual since using this cream. There is actual basis for this: Apricot Oil contains Vitamin K, known to reduce the appearance of dark circles.
But sometimes it is hard to see the exact differences in your skin. Our tester had computerized skin analysis done to see exactly (and scientifically) just how and where Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream made a difference on her skin. The most impressive results were on forehead fine lines:
Prior to using Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream, she had a decent amount of expression lines. The lighter green are fine lines, the dark green are “just about to turn into wrinkles” lines.
After using Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream for about six weeks, most of the lines are gone – just one little one remaining!
The first line of defense against aging is serums such as Vitamin C or Retinol both of which should be daily. But each of these can cause excess dryness, flaking, redness and itchy skin. They cause so much skin distress that many people abandon using them altogether. If you’ve had a problem with skin becoming too irritated from Vitamin C or Retinol, a moisturizer upgrade is required to buffer the effects, retaining all of the serum goodness while fending off dryness.
Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream is the ideal moisturizer to layer over treating topical serums such as my daily Vitamin C or Retinols. I like that the Hyaluronic Acid helps enhance the penetrating ability of my Vitamin C serum so that collagen formation can occur at a deeper skin level, while Jojoba and Apricot quell and soothe the irritation and redness that can occur with some topicals, including Vitamin C and Retinol.
Be An Ostrich Aqua Bomb Moisturizer Anti-Aging Cream is a cruelty-free, natural ingredient, non-irritating, highly hydrating and nourishing cream to soothe and treat the dry skin on the face, eyes, neck, and décolletage. An effective blend of proven ingredients works as a day or night cream and can be used with topicals and under sunscreen and makeup. It absorbs quickly into skin while offering both immediate and long-term benefits.

An airport hotel I frequent has amazing amenities including high-thread-count sheets, cutting-edge electronics, and a complimentary bottle of wine. The downside: the lights from the airport runway keep me up all night! That’s why I was thrilled to try out the TANGCISON Eye Mask Sleep Mask.
There are two eye sleep masks in this set, one royal blue, one black.
Each eye mask is made of high-density memory foam that consists of bamboo and cotton, so it stays cool all night and is incredibly comfortable, and it completely blocks out the light!
The material combination of cotton and bamboo feels is soft and not at all scratchy to the delicate orbital skin area. It is breathable so it never feels too heavy on your face, even in warm and sticky weather.
The two Sleeping Masks comes in a lovely drawstring travel pouch that fits easily in my purse or suitcase. Keep one at home and one in your travel bag.
It has a molded 3-D fit so it doesn’t touch my eyes or damage my eyelashes, and it fits gently over the nose without compressing my nose or sinuses.
Another perk of the TANGCISION Eye Mask Sleep Mask is the contour of the eye shape allows enough room as not to smear or disturb your eye makeup if you are wearing it while traveling to a destination.
Most sleep masks fit too close to the undereye area to utilize both a sleep mask and an eye cream. Moisturizing skin while traveling is essential, as most trains, planes, and hotels have forced dry air, which dries out the skin faster. The contour of the TANGCISION Eye Mask Sleep Mask allows your orbital eye area plenty of room if you use treatment serums, topicals or other eye creams at night or while traveling, and these creams will not get on your sleep mask or transfer onto your pillow.
Another advantage is blocking our creams and serums you wish to keep away from the eye area while you sleep. These include eye irritants such as lightening creams or acne medications that tend to rub off onto our pillows and then around the eye area as we sleep. This will not happen with this eye mask.
Alternatively, if you choose to use an under eye gel patches or silicone pads on your under eyes, such as those made for dark circles while you catch a few winks mid-day or during the night, this sleep mask is large enough to accommodate them but it also will not slip around on your face, so your eye treatment pads or patches will stay in place.
Plenty of rooms for your creams or patches to breathe and do their job to make your eyes look their best
I love the adjustable velcro strap so I can get the perfect fit to my head! Not too tight, not too loose, and it does not leave an indent “bump” mark on my hair in the morning. The velcro is made of a special material so that the “teeth” do not catch hair, which is a huge perk for getting comfortable sleep. The straps do not slip.
The velcro is also very stretchy and durable.
No product can beat what good beauty sleep can do. Make sure you look and feel the best you can by making the most of your sleep whether you are at home or away or even traveling to your destination on an overnight flight or catching a few extra winks on your morning train commute. The TANGCISON Eye Mask Sleep Mask Set comes with two comfortable, breathable cotton and bamboo fabric in an innovative 3D contoured shape that is not only comfortable but allows you to keep your makeup by day or eye creams by night in place without smudging onto the sleep mask itself. The set of two masks each have their own drawstring bag so you can use them anywhere.

What would we do without our makeup brushes, they turn us into beauty ninjas. But lugging around full-size brushes requires a full-size makeup bag on vacation, at the gym and for touchups before after-work dinner or drink plans. That is cumbersome and impractical. While there are always the applicators that come with the makeup, these are generally of poor quality. We recently tried Bella Mini Travel Makeup Brush Set with Mirror Travel Case. Unlike mass production brush kits, these brushes are hand-made in the USA and meet our on the go beauty needs with a face blender, cream shadow, eyeshadow and fine eyeliner brush in a mirrored case.
THE CASE: The shiny metallic case is roughly the size of a phone. It has a sturdy zipper and contains the four brushes. The brushes each come with plastic cap sleeves to keep them nice and protect the bristles when not in use. The inside of the case holds a mirror for on-the-go touchups.
This Bella Mini Travel Makeup Brush Set has four brushes in a mirrored case:
We find many mini brush sets, even those from higher-end boutique beauty stores, to be rather cheaply made. We use them a few times and they break or the bristles fall out. They also aren’t all that effective in applying or blending product. This set, however, is constructed with quality materials including durable brass ferrules, the finest hair for bristles that do not shed in use or during washing. I found they withstood powder, cream, BB Primer, Foundation, shadow, gel liner, and concealer.
DRY/POWDER EYESHADOW BRUSH: Many of my favorite eyeshadow palettes, such as the Urban Decay Naked series, come with quality brushes that enable a smooth application, so for touchups or post-gym shadow re-dos, I want to use a quality brush as well. I find the eyeshadow brush comparable to the UD brushes I use both in the soft feel of the bristle, the stiffness that picks up the shadow, the lack of fallout upon application, and ease of use.
At just shy of four inches, (9.8 cm) this eye shadow brush is an especially nice size for the UD Basics/UD Basics 2/UD and UD Naked Petite Heat, the five shadow compacts that are perfect for pocket or purse but don’t come with a brush.
This brush is just the right size and function, with a thicker base that thins out for better blending. It applies shadow exceptionally smoothly, I like it just as well as my full-size $30 brand name boutique eyeshadow brush.
CREAM EYESHADOW BRUSH: For use with cream shadows, I also find this useful for re-applying a base or blending my YSL Eclat or re-applying liquid or cream concealer for mid-day touchups. I use cream eyeshadows less, but find that cream shadow brushes tend to not pick up product evenly, or that there ends up being a fair amount of waste. This brush deposits product without streaks, I like the smoother application, I can get a nice thin coat of shadow.
In a pinch, I find it useful for precise creamy/liquid highlighter, such as MAC Strobe highlighter on the cheekbones. It is not as thicker a diameter as the dry eyeshadow brush, the bristles are straight.
EYELINER BRUSH: This brush has a cap when closed, so it can transport some product on the brush is you choose to “pre-load it” with liner product when you are at home such as mineral powder, gel or cream liner from a pot, such as Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wearing Eyeliner Gel or Maybelline’s cream liner, then you have it for touchups without having to carry the liner product. The cap fits onto the end of the brush to make a long handle which makes it easier to create a thin line or cat-eye liner. The cap stays put, and it is steady enough for doing a thicker cat-eye or heavy liquid liner on the go for a transition from a work look to after dinner eye makeup look.
The liner brush tip is not too hard, not too soft. It doesn’t drag or skip on the application. Angle it for a thin or thick line.
I also find it useful to wet the brush either with water or a drop of Visine to create a liner out of dry eyeshadow, I especially like lining my eyes with a few of the UD Basics, such as the black shade, or if I am doing a particularly heavy lash look, a thin line of the taupe eyeshadow applied with the thick end of the brush gives some definition without giving too dark of a look around the lower lashline.
Lastly, this is a nice size for pressing a bit of eyeshadow over the top liner to powder it down into place, make the line more even, intense and long-lasting.
FACE BLENDER BRUSH: The bristles on this are exceptionally soft and fluffy, but it still blends contour, foundation, powder, and blush very well. The versatile cream, liquid and powder use of this brush makes it a nice go-to item for your bag. It blends makeup well without streaking.
It is soft to the touch but stiff enough to apply powder in an even thin layer.
I particularly like this brush for blush touchups during the day, and it works well after a gym workout or while traveling to use it for BB Primer or foundation. By pinching down on each side of the head, it becomes an excellent fan brush travel dupe.
This Bella Mini Travel Makeup Brush Set with Mirror Travel Case features four easy to grip, ergonomic handles, soft bristles, portable, attractive, sturdy storage. The set is highly versatile, attractive, durable, fits in even the smallest of makeup bags, and contains brushes that are ergonomic, easy to use, sturdy, and offer an exceptionally smooth application. The set comes with a no-hassle money-back guarantee and one-year return window. A great gift for yourself, a friend, a constant traveler, or anyone who would appreciate quality craftsmanship in a portable and practical brush set.

We’ve all seen RF Skin Rejuvenation procedures offered at the dermatologist. But wouldn’t you like to have the amazing skin smoothing and tightening effects of a Radio Frequency skin treatment at home? That’s why we love the DEESS Home RF Skin Rejuvenator.
WHAT IS RF SKIN REJUVENATION?
Radio Frequency Skin Rejuvenation is a technique where Radio Frequency Energy to heat the tissue underneath the top layers of skin. This makes the skin activate the process that produces collagen and elastin. This, in turn, lifts and tightens skin. It is considered as a non-invasive alternative to a Face Lift, Eye Lift, Brow Lift, or Throat Lift.
WHY WE LIKE THE DEESS HOME RF SKIN REJUVENATOR
The device fits easily in the hand, and the controls are very easy to use. The instruction manual covers any questions you may have about use.
It is important to use a quality conduction gel with this product, which you can purchase from Amazon. The conduction gel allows the probes on the device to form a “bond” to your skin and let the Radio Frequency waves pass directly to your skin without losing energy. It also lets the device move smoothly across your skin.
HOW TO USE
Once you have applied the conduction gel, select the mode you want to use. Always go from the middle of your face outward and upward. It is warm, but it wasn’t at all uncomfortable or painful. It’s an easy addition to your daily skincare routine!
I am pleased with the results I’ve had so far with the DEESS Home RF Skin Rejuvenator. My skin seems tighter, especially around my jawline. The skin on my cheeks also appears more lifted and youthful. It is much less expensive than a single medi-spa treatment and I love that I can do it at home!
