Hot Shoes?

Already looking into buying shoes for spring? Check out A’Gaci! They are always up to date on what shoes are in right now. They have a pretty wide variety of shoes to choose from (online and in-store) and cost less than most designer brands. I, personally, buy most of my shoes from here. The quality of these shoes is amazing and comparable to designer brand shoes. If your looking for a pair of cute and inexpensive shoes, then try checking this site/store out! You won’t be disappointed!

Rohto Cool Eye Drops - Rating: 5/5
I’ve been using Rohto Eye Drops for over a year now! I love it so much, I don’t feel the need to try other brands. The product is proven to soothe eye irritations and reduce eye redness while providing long-lasting moisture to the eyes. The thing I love about this product the most is that it gives your eyes this nice and gentle cooling sensation! For others, this “gentle” can be a bit harsh, but I’ve been using it for so long that the sensation isn’t all that harsh anymore. The great thing about this sensation is that it can be an awesome ‘pick me up’. I tend to have a little redness in my eyes after waking up and taking off my contacts. I put a few a drops in my eyes in the morning and instantly after applying, I’M AWAKE and the redness is gone! It keeps me awake during those long late-night study sessions! I also put a few drops in my eyes before putting on my contacts. It lubricates my eye and it prolongs the wear time of contacts. 
Overall, this is a great product! For first time users, I recommend using it once a day for the first three days and go up from there! 
 Rohto Cool Eye Drops can be found at your local Wal-Mart or Walgreens for about $5.00.

ZapZyt Maximum Strength Acne Medication - Rating: 4/5
ZapZyt is a maximum strength over the counter acne medication gel. This gel contains 10% Benzoyl Peroxide. Benzoyl Peroxide is commonly found in most topical acne medications. It is made when Benzoyl Chloride is combined with Hydrogen Peroxide. Once Benzoyl Peroxide comes in contact with the skin, it breaks down and forces oxygen into the pores and it also provides benzoic acid to help exfoliate the affected area to minimize buildup. The bacteria causing acne cannot thrive in oxgen-rich environments. This all sounds pretty amazing, right? 
Benzoyl Peroxide can be a threat to your skin along with being a savior. It can be very over drying and cause mild to severe irration. Sensitive skin beware! Use as directed and only apply to affected areas! Keep in mind, it is a maximum strength acne medication! Once your acne has cleared up, stop applying the treatment! If you keep applying it, your skin might build up a tolerance to it. This acne medication is for people with light to mild acne, so if you have severe acne, a prescription acne medication might be better for you. 
 ZapZyt - $5.00 Wal-Mart
Kills acne causing bacteria
Clears acne pimples and blackheads fast
Oil-free, odorless gel vanishes as it clears your skin
Satisfaction guaranteed
I have been using this product for about two and a half weeks now and most of pimples are gone! I have mild acne and I saw results within three days of use. I started with one application per day and increased to two, then to three. Three is the maximum! Any more than that can damage your skin! My pimples started to reduce in size within three days. Other pimples came to a head much faster. *Do not pop your pimples! Popping your pimples can result in scarring and severe irritation if isn’t done properly!* If your pimple happens to pop on its own in the shower or while washing your face, apply some Benzoyl Peroxide on the area to kill the bacteria. After a week of use, I noticed that most of pimples have greatly reduced in size and some even disappeared! My forehead was starting to look much better, aside from the fact that it left me with extremely dry skin! Honestly, I’d rather have dry skin than a face full of pimples and it’s nothing some moisturizer can’t fix! 
The product doesn’t smell like anything, so you don’t have to worry about that. It is absorbed instantly by your skin, but leaves a white powdery mark on your face. 
I used the medication right after cleansing my face and applied my moisturizer after the medication. I also iced my pimples every night to reduce redness and applied extra virgin olive oil all over my face to keep it moisturized*.
Overall, this product really cleared my skin. I saw results instantly and it’s just what I needed. The only con: it can really dry out your skin! I know there are many factors that should be considered when it comes to acne (i.e sleep, diet, genetics, etc.) and if this product does not work for you, you can send it to back them (along with your receipt) for a full refund! So save your receipts! 
*Extra Virgin Olive Oil Facial: At night and after you wash your face, soak a facial pad with olive oil and apply all over your skin. Leave on for ten minutes and then wash out with warm water. Your skin should feel soft and moisturized. If your skin is needing some extra hydration after the facial, then apply a bit of moisturizer to your skin. Repeat 1 to 2 times a week.

Maybelline’s Babylips Lip Balm - Rating: 5/5
Threw away my old Carmex chapsticks! This is the best thing to ever happen to my lips! It runs at about $3.00 each and you can find it at your local CVS, Target, Walgreens, or Wal-Mart. Comes in four different tints: Cherry Me (Red), Pink Punch (Barbie Pink), Grape Vine (Deep Purple), Peach Kiss (Shimmery Pink/Nude). It also comes in two clears: Peppermint, and Quenched. Its said to keep your lips hydrated for 8 hours and give you visibly renewed lips in four weeks of continuous use. It also has SPF 20. 
Feels: Glossy and soft.
Smells: Each lip balm smells like the name of their tint. (Ex. Cherry Me smells like cherries). The lip balms smell very nice. Definitely better than the original Carmex’s horrid scent. 
I own four of the six balms and have been using them for two weeks now. My lips get very dry very fast. I have seen a major difference in the texture and look of my lips. My lips are much softer and stay hydrated longer. They are no longer dry and chapped all the time! I used to use EOS lip balm and Carmex’s Cherry lip balm and they don’t compare to the results Babylips has given me. With EOS and Carmex, I’d have to reapply the balm at least ten times throughout the day. If I don’t reapply, then my lips would dry up and crack. With Babylips, I only have to apply at most three times a day. After two weeks of application, my lips look better than ever. If i skipped a day of applying this balm, my lips would still be soft and hydrated. 
Do not expect too much tint from the tinted balm. They will give your lips a hint of color and nothing more. The Peach Kiss tint is my favorite out of all the tints. I have dark pink lips and Peach Kiss was able to bring the color of my lips down a couple shades to make it look like I was wearing a sheer and shimmery pale pink lipstick. Also, the clear balms do a much better job at keeping your lips hydrated for a longer time than the tints. 
Overall, I love this balm. It keeps my lips hydrated and improved the appearance and texture of my lips. You’ll see results instantly!
