Best Eye Cream?

Hey guys!!

I thought I would do something different today. Today's topic will be eye creams.

I have tried out so many eye creams recently and I didn't like most of them. Right now I am testing out the Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb. It moisturizes my under eye really well so I am enjoying it at the moment. 

Recently, I have been interested in ingredients in skin care since my skin been acting up lately and I am trying to figure out what could be breaking me out. I saw this eye cream guide and I was intrigued with what information it said.

First of all, who knew there were so many creams for so many different issues. It has best options for wrinkles, dark circles, and puffy eyes. I appreciate the fact they have higher end options, but also drugstore for those who can't afford high end products.

Secondly, what I found very interesting is the importance of packaging. The best packaging to use are the ones in a tube or have a pump to prevent bacteria to get into your eye cream. Also certain ingredients in the eye cream can break down if it is in a pot form of packaging. Who knew right? Not something people think about.

All this eye cream guide information was sourced from the team at Reviews.com I hope you guys learned something new from this post and from the post at Reviews.com

Now with this info I am going to try some new eye cream in a tube or pump I don't want bacteria around my eye area.

Maple Holistics Moisture Control Shampoo

Hey guys!!

Recently, I decided to go cruelty free with everything (I might do a post about this later on) I use in my life like skincare, makeup, fragrances, and etc. Unfortunately, skincare will not be as easy for me. My skin is going through some things right now.

During this switch I was looking for a perfect shampoo and conditioner and the brand Maple Holistics reached out to me to try out one of their products and I was excited to see that they were cruelty free, sulfate free, organic, and all natural.

They sent me the Moisture Control Shampoo.

This post is not sponsored they just sent me the product for free for testing purposes and for me to write about my experience with the product.

When I first received the product I smelled it as you do with everything haha. I loved the smell. This shampoo has lavender, carrot and parsley seed, silk peptide, jojoba and almond oils, and botanical keratin. I smell the lavender and it smells like legit lavender not an artificial scent. 

This is what the website says about each ingredient for if you guys are interested:
"Lavender: Bulgarian Lavender of the highest quality oversees the combination of therapeutic properties used in this formula. Aid in softening minor blemishes resulting from dry scalp, defense against possible infections with antiseptic-/analgesis properties and reduction of scarring are all benefits this essential ingredient provides.
Carrot and Parsley Seed: Helps rejuvinates and regenerate skin with high levels of carotene and caratol. Also synergizes to stimulate cell growth, remove toxic build-up in the skin and improve complexion. Carrots help promote hair growth and add thickness to the hair. Because it is loaded with Vitamin A, it keeps the hair well-conditioned, shiny, and resilient. Parsley seed, on the other hand, help get rid of dandruff; it also makes the hair shiny and stimulates hair growth.
Silk Peptide: From the cocoon of the silkworm, eighteen different silk amino acids (including glycine, serine, and alanine) contribute superior moisture binding properties to improve moisture retention capacity while nourishing and balancing extra dry follicles. Thanks to its molecular mesh structure, it is the top choice in barrier creams and products for severely dry hair and skin.
Jojoba and Almond: These two gentle carrier oils are some of nature’s best ingredients to help smooth dry and irritated scalps. Almond has a range of nourishing elements, such as protein, vitamin E1, potassium, zing, and calcium, to name a few. It helps nourish the hair, repair the damage, reduce frequent hair fall, and help in the growth of new follicles. Jojoba, on the other hand, hydrates hair from the inside of the hair shaft.
Botanical Keratin: Hair nutrient deficiencies can sometimes stem from lack of keratin, which this natural ingredient generously replenishes. Botanical keratin molecules are known to coat the hair cuticle, leaving the hair saturated with keratin both inside and out. It also smoothen frizzy and unmanageable hair."

When I first used the shampoo I wasn't sure about what I would think of it cause once I rinsed the shampoo my hair felt rough for a min, but once I applied conditioner and rinsed it out my hair feels so smooth and soft and my hair smeellllsss sooo good. 

After the first time using it my hair doesn't feel rough after rinsing it out anymore and this product is supposed to help with dry scalp and I feel like it does do that! I used to use Head & Shoulders for that type of problem and I feel that this shampoo is waayyy better than that!!! 

My scalp used to itch after a couple of days of not washing it and now it doesn't do that anymore. This is my favorite shampoo now and I will be replenishing it once I use up all I have in my bathroom. I have many shampoos and conditioners and I been reaching for this one. That says a lot since I am always using something different. 

Sorry for the long post its been a while haha. 
Now if you guys are interested in trying this shampoo or anything from their website they have a free samples program and you can put in your information and which product you want to try and they will send you what you want.

Thank you Maple Holistics for reaching out to me and sending me the product and now I LOVE IT! Thanks to my readers for sticking with me life has been hard and I hope to keep posting more frequently. If you want to get reviews, empties, project pan, or swatches of my collection go to my instagram at theladypsyche I am more active on there. 

Just an FYI I will never lie about my opinions on anything I will always be honest with you. If you try this product out let me know how it worked out for YOU.

Maybelline City Mini VoxBox

Hey guys!!!


I have received yet another VoxBox and this time it is the Maybelline City Mini VoxBox. I actually wasn't going to pick this up because I am slowly transitioning to cruelty free makeup, but since I got it I will be reviewing it and then I am going to give it to a friend.

I received the City Mini Palette in Downtown Sunrise. 



All these swatches are two swipes.
All the shades here are pigmented and easy to blend. I was nervous about the dark brown cause I am used to using those and being very hard to blend, but it surprised me. It was VERY EASY to blend.

The most unique shade is that coral shade and I think that reminds me a lot of the Carli Bybel Deluxe Palette so I am going to get that palette in the future.

I did only one look with this palette and it is on my instagram at theladypsyche.

Thank you Influenster for sending me this palette for testing purposes.

Laura Mercier TLSP VoxBox

Hey guys!!!

I received the Laura Mercier TLSP VoxBox complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and I was really excited cause I actually already loved using this product and I got a backup for it thanks to this box. #contest #HowDoYouTLSP

I actually used to use the Invisible Loose Setting Powder and I really did enjoy it, BUT I think the Loose Translucent Powder is a little bit better. 


You can check my Instagram: theladypsyche and see how my skin looks after setting my face since 100% of the time I use this product. 

I use it to bake my under eyes, bake my contour, and set my entire face. My skin doesn't look cakey or dry when I use this product. It leaves my skin looking flawless and helps prevent my concealer from creasing. 

I do recommend if you are dry to not bake and just use this product to set everything because it can make you look dry if you do bake. I actually have combination skin so this product works perfectly for me and helps my makeup not melt off my face.

Thank you once again Influenster for sending me this product and giving me a backup of my holy grail powder. If you guys are interested in receiving products from them just go to www.influenster.com and get your profile started.
