3 New Natural Skincare Products You Must Try in 2020

Still not using natural skincare products? If so, you’re missing out on all the benefits organic products can give to your skin. Not long ago, I gave organic skincare products a try. My skin loves them, so I continue to use them.

Organic vs. Non-organic Skincare Products

A lot of people rave about organic stuff and I don’t blame them at all. Organic products are 100% natural and do not contain chemicals that can harm your skin or body. Since they are natural, you can expect them to work much better than their non-organic counterparts.

Now, let’s talk about one of the common reasons why people refuse to take the organic route. Price. Yes, most organic products are pricier than their non-organic counterparts. However, they are still more affordable than luxury products that you might have already been using. I believe that organic skincare products are reasonably priced considering the natural ingredients they contain and their effectiveness when it comes to solving a lot of skin-related problems. I love spending more for high-quality items and you should, too. Remember: quality over quantity.

Organic Skincare Products to Try

Even if you have limited budget for skincare, you can still find organic products that you can afford. Below, I listed 3 of the new organic skincare products that I recently discovered. Each of these cost below $50.

Blueberry Charcoal Mud Mask Review

So, it’s the weekend. Again. Great, isn’t it? Do you have any plans?

If you’re like me who likes beauty and spending my rest days at home, then you might want to read this entire article. My rest days are literally rest days. I mean, I just relax during the weekend. Some of the things that I enjoy doing every weekend include reading, watching Netflix, online chatting with friends, and trying out new beauty products.

This weekend, I tried a new skincare product. It’s called the Blueberry Charcoal Mud Mask. You might be wondering why I decided to give this one a try. First of all, I have oily skin type. No matter what the weather or temperature is, my face oils up a few hours after washing it. When I put on moisturizing products, my face oils up even more. For a change, I decided to try out a product that promises to detoxify and nourish the skin while leaving a clean, clear, and conditioned feeling. Right, this time, I decided to give my skin a little detox.

Product Overview

Now, let’s talk about the product a little more. The Blueberry Charcoal Mud Mask contains 1.7 oz or 50ml of product and is made in the U.S.A. It doesn’t sound a lot, but believe me, a little goes a long way so I think it could last for a few months. The mask contains infused bentonite clay and Vitamin B that are supposed to deeply detoxify, nourish, and purify the skin and leave it feeling soft, clean, clear, and conditioned.

How to Use

Image Source: Bourgoyne’s Official Website

Applying the product is pretty easy. You just use it like any other mud mask. You apply a thin layer on your face and for best results, use it once or twice a week. You only need to wait between 7 and 12 minutes for it to dry and rinse with water. The next step is to apply moisturizer.

My Experience

Based on my experience, the Blueberry Charcoal Mud Mask is a very good product. Right after I rinsed my face with water, I felt immediate result. My face felt soft and smooth. I also felt fresh and clean right after using it. It’s definitely the detox that I needed after a long week of work. I actually asked my sister to give it a try too, because just like me, she likes this kind of stuff. She has a very stressful job and I think that she deserves some pampering as well. Is it worth a try? My answer would be a big YES.

Where to Get and How Much

I got the Blueberry Charcoal Mud Mask at It’s not only effective, but also organic, cruelty-free, vegan, paraben-free, gluten-free, and dye-free. I know that organic skincare products tend to be on the expensive side, but this mask is an exception. For only $24.99, I think that it’s a steal! It’s definitely reasonably priced compared to a lot of organic face masks in stores today.

Will I continue using it? TOTALLY. I will continue using it until I finish the whole container and if I still like it, I would repurchase it.

Why You Should Declutter Your Workstation

It can sound like real common sense, yet many people just don’t have the habit of tidying up and decluttering the work desk.

It might be due to laziness or even a counter-intuitive way of staying organized that some people choose to leave a mess at the workstation.

But even if you are one of those people who choose to keep your workspace looking like a battlefield to impress the boss, you might find that removing all that clutter can have a greater benefit than just showing your colleagues how hard you work.

And that benefit concerns your state of mind.

Think about the last time you entered a fancy hotel room. You walked in and breathed in the freshness and cannot wait for the end of the day so that you can relax in the clean sheets of the queen-sized mattress.

I’d bet that you wouldn’t feel that comfort if the bed was in mess with pillows all over the place and bedsheets that were not nicely tucked.

The pleasure you feel from the neat and tidy look of the bed is no coincidence.

We are generally programmed to love tidiness by default. It’s just that often times, people just find decluttering quite a chore to undertake.

Tidiness and organization eases the mind and alleviates stress. Even feng shui has something to say about it.

A decluttered workspace sub-consciously eases the mind, relaxes your thoughts and calms down your emotions. Putting you in a better mental state to go about work and make decisions.

For example, if you are suddenly reminded of a report which the boss is expecting from you that has slipped your mind, a calm purposefulness is going to help you prepare that report before you get found out. Let’s not forget that the tidy workstation is going to help you find what you need faster.

Arriving at the office each day to a tidy organized table also sub-consciously reminds yourself that you start the day with a clean slate.

There are really only 3 rules you need to follow to ensure that you leave work every day with a tidy desk.

The first is that at most, only 30% of the table surface area should be taken up by office items like stationary, folders and display items. This is excluding the keyboards and computer monitor.

Secondly, any unfinished tasks you have to take on and complete the next day should not be left on the table. Sometimes we leave unfinished stuff on the table so that we are reminded of it the moment we arrive at work.

This does not have to be the case.

Just make it a point to keep all these paperwork in the top drawer. Even if they are in a mess, being in the drawer creates the illusion of cleanliness. This is enough to trick your mind into a calmer state.

Thirdly, keep personal items to a minimum. The office is not your home. And you should keep it at that.

Anyway, having a flurry of personal items at the office can unconsciously make you feel at home… yet you are not. This can deprive you of the real feeling of warmth when you arrive home at the end of the day.

If you don’t subscribe to the notion that a decluttered workstation can improve your mental state, just give it a try for a week or two. I’m confident that you would be able to feel the difference for yourself.

What’s New in Fashion: Tabia Charles-Collins Fashion Line

The year is coming to an end and the new decade is going to say hello to us soon. I think it’s about time for us to try something new. In my case, I want to add unique, bold outfits in my closet. I was just checking out some new online fashion shops and found one that caught my attention.

If you are looking for a refreshing fashion line and want to try bold and fashion-forward statements, there’s a new clothing line that you need to check out. It is called Anisah by Tabia Charles-Collins.

Anisah by Tabia Charles-Collins sells head wraps, skirts, jackets, and jumpsuits. What I like about this line is that all of their pieces are so colorful. The designer’s love for tribal prints is evident in every piece in her collection. According to their website, Tabia Charles-Collin’s vision is for her line to be dramatic, attention-grabbing, and head-turning with a splash of mystique, a dash of grace, and a sprinkle of elegance.

Statement Pieces for Everyone

I love their printed head wraps because they are simply stunning. I think it is a perfect addition to any outfit, because it can make a super simple outfit looking amazing. Their Ankara printed head warps are unique, so I highly recommend it to be a staple accessory.

Anisah’s Ankara printed skirts as just as pretty and unique as their head wraps. It can make any simple outfit look effortlessly fashionable. Just match it with a black top and you’re ready to go!

Most jackets nowadays look plain and simple, but Anisah’s jacket collection is an exception. Each jacket is colorful, lively, and fashionable. Even if you are just wearing a black or white T-shirt underneath, their jackets will make your entire outfit look as if it came out of a fashion magazine. I especially love their Runway Jacket. Its name says it all. It’s just perfect for the runway. They also have jackets for men that are equally fashionable.

Anisah also has a line of jumpsuits that are perfect for any occasion. Just like their other pieces, these jumpsuits are colorfully printed and look flattering.

About the Designer

I wouldn’t be surprised if you have heard of her name before. Tabia Charles-Collins is a former Olympian. This 34-year-old long jumper is currently inspiring athletes to pursue their passion, which in her case is fashion. Even during her athlete days, she was admired because of her good fashion sense. She used to compete in fishnet stockings. This University of Miami Hall of Famer aims to provide statement outfits for both men and women.

Easy Way to Get Rid of Flabby Tummy

2019 is coming to an end and the new year is about to come. Have you made a list of your New Year’s Resolution already?

One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions people tend to include their list is to get fit. If it is included in your list too, no problem, I totally understand. Even I am planning to exercise or walk outdoors more because I want to start improving my health as well as my physical appearance. No, I am not planning to starve myself. What I need is more physical activity because my job requires me to sit down a lot in front of my computer for more than 9 hours a day.

While I was looking for some tips on how to easily lose weight, I stumbled upon a page with a list of items that can help people get the body shape they desire. One thing that caught my attention is a waist trainer. I already tried wearing one before but now, I am planning to do it again for a longer period of time.

What is a Waist Trainer?

Wait Trainer is very similar to a corset. It should be worn daily in order to achieve the curves that you desire. Sounds good, right? Of course, wearing it alone is not the only step you need to take. When waist training, the person needs to follow a proper diet and do exercises as well.

What I like about wearing a waist trainer is that it instantly makes the waist look slimmer. The longer you do waist training, the slimmer your waist will get. It is actually an awesome way to supplement my long-term slimming goals.

Waist training could be a bit uncomfortable for the first time, but you will surely get the hang of it after a few days of wearing it. It is very important to choose a quality waist trainer that is made of materials that won’t make you feel too uncomfortable.

Corset or waist training becomes more and more popular because people have already noticed desirable and fast results when doing it. It will help you sweat more during exercise. It will also help you avoid overeating. Sounds good, right? Aside from helping with my tummy’s slimming process, waist training will also help me achieve the waist curve that I want to get back.

When to Wear a Waist Trainer

The answer is simple. Anywhere. Yes, you’ve read that correctly. You can wear a waist trainer anytime, anywhere. It is also perfect for any outfit. Some people even waist trainers while sleeping!

What to Consider Before Getting a Waist Trainer

Before you buy a waist trainer in UK, you need to make sure that it’s the right size. Waist trainer sizes vary from person to person, so you need to keep that in mind. Another thing that you should consider is the material. If you think that it is the right fit and the material doesn’t make you feel uneasy, get it!

Have you tried waist training before? Or are you planning to do it in 2020? Let me know in the comments section below!

I know it’s freezing cold this season, but did you know that you should still wear sunscreen in the winter? We don’t get sunburned easily during the winter season because of the weaker UVB rays.

Maximum Hair Thickening Serum: Is this Really the Solution for Thinning Hair?

Our hair is our crowning glory, so we should give proper care to it. Everyone wants to have healthy, strong, and thick hair. However, even if we do everything we can to keep our hair thick and healthy-looking, we still experience hair fall from time to time. There are also some people who notice hair thinning as they get older.

Hair thinning is not something that only aging or elderly people experience. According to, hair loss could be related to a number of factors such as heredity, hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, supplements, radiation therapy to the head, stress, and hair styling treatments. If you are experiencing this, don’t worry because it could still be prevented or treated (depending on the case).

In this article, we will talk about the revolutionary product that is making noise in the beauty industry today. It is called Maximum Hair Thickening Serum by Hair Restoration Laboratories.

The Maximum Hair Thickening Serum is a potent leave-in hair treatment that is packed with clinically-studied ingredients (such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Argan Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, Keratin, Hydrolyzed Collagen, and Caprylic Triglyceride) that can:

  • provide maximum hair thickness
  • provide intense nourishment to the hair
  • improve hair strength
  • minimize hair loss
  • keep hair follicles and scalp in optimum condition
  • keep hair shiny and vibrant

This product contains a high level of DHT Halting Complex, which is composed of effective ingredients that block the harmful effects of DHT or Dihydrotestosterone. DHT is a cause of pattern hair loss for both men and women. The DHT Halting Complex ingredients that work together to prevent hair loss and help regrow hair include Azelaic Acid, Biotin, Caffeine, Cayenne Fruit Extract, Cumin Seed Oil, Ginseng, Green Tea Extract, Hydrolyzed Pea Protein, Pumpkin Seed Oil, and Saw Palmetto Extract.

What I like about this product is that it is not a temporary fix for thinning hair. With continued use, this hair serum will make you enjoy its long-term benefits. It is so potent that it can instantly improve the appearance of your hair upon first application. This product can be used by both men and women. It is also safe for all hair types, so it’s perfect for you whether you have dry, oily, color-treated, damaged, or ethnic hair.

Another thing that I love about the Maximum Hair Thickening Serum is that it is free from parabens and sulfates! It is made from safe and test ingredients that won’t irritate my hair and scalp.

Now, let’s talk about the price. For $44.99, you will get 60mL of the serum. Here’s a good news for you. For a limited amount of time, you can get it for only $34.99! Now is the perfect time to get it at a discounted price! Give it a try or give it to someone who needs help with hair problems. Besides, Christmas is just around the corner! The Maximum Hair Thickening Serum could be the perfect Christmas gift for some of your friends and loved ones!

Calming Thing to Do This Weekend

Good news, it’s almost weekend! The work week is coming to an end and you’ll finally have your “me” time. Have you already made plans for the weekend? If not, no problem at all. Besides, staying at home and not doing anything are considered a treat for most of us after a busy week at work.

I will be travelling for 18 days starting next week. That is why I want to get as much rest as I can this weekend. Every weekend, I usually just stay at home, read e-books, sleep, watch Netflix (or YouTube), and chill. However, this weekend, I want to try something different.

I was just surfing the net today and stumbled upon some podcasts that people love to listen to. I checked them one by one to see if I can find some that I might want to check out this weekend. I was looking for one that is relatable and easy to listen to. After minutes of searching, I found a podcast called Poems for People hosted by R.R. Noall. The podcast currently has over 10 episodes and each episode has decent length.

What piqued my interest was the fact that the host is a poet. To be honest, it’s the first time I stumbled upon a podcast that talks about poetry – particularly typewriter poetry. I used to write poems and short stories in my teenage years. I really want to do it again but I’m always busy at work. Not gonna lie, I had to google what “typewriter poetry” means as I’ve never heard of it before.

Rachel R. Noall, the podcast’s host, talk to people who have inspiring stories and writes poems for them using her typewriter. What amazed me about it is that she writes poems in real-time.

I knew that Poems for People is perfect for me because I love inspiring stories, poetry, relatable content, and writing. I listened to the first episode and absolutely loved it! I can’t wait to listen to all the other episodes while chilling on the couch on Saturday afternoon while having a cup of coffee or tea. Actually, I think this podcast is perfect for Sunday mornings, too!

If you are busy during the weekends, that’s not a problem. Each episode is less than 30 minutes long, so you may listen to it before going to sleep or while on commute to work. I already know that it will be a calm, genuine, and lovely part of my week. I do believe that we deserve to relax and be inspired from time to time in order to live a better life.

If you are interested, there are 2 ways to get access to the podcast: Apple Podcasts and Spotify. You may write a comment below this post to let me know your thoughts about it. It’s always a good idea to share thoughts with like-minded people. 🙂
