VIDI Skincare: IncreduLASH Enhancer Serum for Eyelashes and Eyebrows #Review and Giveaway #IncreduLASH

IMAG3012

We have all seen the commercials for the product that increases eyelash growth and it’s something that we all want and/or need. Well, more like want! I’m not going to see my doctor to discuss my healthy lashes and then pay for a prescribed product. That is just not happening here! I can see though, like purchasing a mascara doing the same when it comes to using a serum. I buy serums for my skin, so why not buy something for my lashes too?

VIDI is a skincare company that offers an eyelash/eyebrow serum as part of their beauty line. This is my first time working with VIDI and they were kind enough to send me the product to give it a 4-week try, plus a GIVEAWAY*

IncreduLASH is a product that nourishes your own natural eyelashes and promotes growth, plus it comes with 0% of the risks and side effects, which are associated with other products on the market, including the prescribed brands. Permanent darkening of my eye’s skin is not something I am willing to risk when the dark circles look is not my cup of tea! It’s a serum that can be applied to encourage growth to your eyebrows in case you plucked one too many in your lifetime or with age, we tend to start getting growth that is no longer fuller or longer in length. I’m so far so good when it comes to my lashes and thankfully I was blessed with both eyebrows that are as full as my lashes. I just wanted to enhance the look and also test how effective and how quick it worked. It took me 3 months to get Coconut oil to show it’s effects on my eyebrows when I read they need to be moisturized too. Eyebrow gels, cosmetics, and anything you use to temporarily darken or make your eyebrows look fuller and thicker……well, they tend to stress them out too. Yup, that means you get thinning and just loss of hairs and lashes, which then means you need more cosmetics to get the look you want that is being compromised by the product(s) you use (the never ending cycle).  I use a clear eyebrow gel and I noticed that my skin, plus the hairs get dehydrated over time. I then started to apply oils to my eyebrows but this is only something I can do at night, as oily eyebrows is not something I have heard is the “gotta have it” look at the moment :).

Ingredients (as listed on the website): Aqua (Water), Glycerine, Hydrolyed Starch Phosphate, Polyglyceryl-4 Caprate, Myristoyl Pentapeptide-17, Pterocarpus Marsupium Bark Extract, Malus Domestica (Apple) Fruit Cell Culture Extract, Mannitol, Panthenol (D), Glutamic Acid (L), Xanthan Gum, Lecithin 1, 2-Hexanediol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sodium Chloride Disodium Succinate, Tropolone, Phenoxyethanol, and Phytic Acid.

Application:
Simple to apply and like anything you use in that area, just watch it when it comes to getting it in your eye. Hey, even Coconut oil hurts when it starts travelling into my eye! You simply take the wand and brush along the eye’s skin where your lashes start (the root, per say). One continuous stroke on each eye and done. You also apply the serum after freshly washing your face because the surface must be clean and free of anything else, like with most serums should be applied to any skin area (i.e. thinner product in texture gets applied first). You only use it once a day too, so it really is easy to work into any beauty regimen. For eyebrow use, the same application principle as your eyes applies and make sure the product dries and absorbs before applying anything else.

Retail Price Point: $39.75 via Amazon and one bottle lasts up to 6 months.

Verdict:
I added IncreduLASH to my nightly beauty routine and used it only once a day on my lashes. I use the product as a “spot corrector” on one eyebrow because I had an “oops” while plucking and created a spot that was missing 2 to 3 hairs. Yes, my spot would eventually yield hairs again but I’m a girl that has little patience when it comes to my boo-boos being corrected. The serum by VIDI states most start seeing results within 2 weeks. I can say by 2.5 weeks, my lashes felt and looked nicer. I had zero stragglers like when you have those mini lashes that began to grow and they are too short to notice before you apply mascara, but then obstruct your vision once you do! Those mini lashes drive me crazy and I then have to use the mascara wand’s tip to make them stick to a lash-buddy that is of normal length……I have also plucked them when they don’t play nice. Yes, it starts the process of growing again but I then hope the new lash heard the screams of the last lash being plucked and will behave :). It was nice not having to deal with shorties, so that was a definite positive that I saw from IncreduLASH’s results. I also found the texture of the hairs were enhanced I lost less when I curled my lashes and/or washed the mascara off. Sometimes I even lost none! Next, the spot on my eyebrow. What spot? By week three the spot was a thing of the pass and from my experience, it would take me a month and a half to see those mistakes show any hairs that are long enough and I did not need to blot some eyebrow pencil to cover it up. IncreduLASH does work and because you use so little product upon application, it makes the investment sting less when it comes to sticker price. I use less mascara and like this natural fuller lash look that did not need a doctor’s visit to get. I’m a DIY gal and especially when it comes to beauty solutions and IncreduLASH is a soultion that works, plus VIDI guarantees it!

Enlightened Ambience: Antique Edison Style Chandelier 40 Watt Light Bulbs #Review #EnjoyLight

IMAG2830

As much as I like to save energy, I don’t feel that all bulbs have achieved the best make-over. Many of the LED kind are chunky in appearance and don’t provide soothing light. I want to be able to see true colors when I’m looking at objects, foods or even what I’m wearing. When I changed bulbs around the home and we have many, many, light fixtures, I had to find the proper balance. Our dining room lighting was changed first and the LED lights made food look unappealing and when we started to question if something was black in color or sort of bluish, we had to change bulbs back to just normal incandescent. Same for the expensive LEDs I replaced in the hallway thinking it’s the lights we use more, so I could save more. Wrong! Within 2 months, one light bulb started to flicker when in use and would stop within a few seconds. Then this extended to flickering all the time and even though the bulb’s box stated a 20 some so lifespan, it causing a strobe effect made me walk in the dark half the time and lets just say the moment I turned ahead of time and met the wall…..well, I went back to just plain old normal lights.

We paid a lot for our fixtures and some I want to look as nice as can be. This goes for the chandelier style lantern we have outside in the front. I don’t want to blind my neighbors every time they exit their home either, but I want to be able to see well when night comes. At 40 watts and being that it’s a 3-lighted lantern, the bulbs from Enlightened Ambience fit the bill both look wise and cost.

Enlightened Ambience provides the consumer with 6 bulbs with each having a lifetime of around 3,000 hours. The E-12 style bulbs are beautiful both on or even when they are off. The tips of the bulbs are “flame tip” style and they have that old fashion look, where you get that light amber glass colored look and the filament is just gorgeous. The bulbs make me smile and verify how much I love the lantern we purchased. The filament has that spiral shape that separates it from the usual incandescent bulbs you commonly purchase, making the light bulb itself add beauty to any fixture you own. The light bulbs from Enlightened Ambience can be used with dimming switches and suitable for both indoor and outdoors use. No limits and using 3 bulbs with my fixture did zero to make my bill go up or down.

These antique style bulbs come in a box that carefully secures each bulb in place with custom fittend (cut-outs) foam, plus the box has been created to mimic the same old fashion style as the bulbs. From the fonts and coloring, nothing was spared with Enlightened Ambience and every bulb shined perfectly right out of the box because I tested each one. You will love that smoky look and it really changes any lighting fixture for the better!
