Rusk W8Less Strong Hold Hairspray Review + Giveaway

Rusk W8Less Strong Hold Hairspray is very lightweight, humidity resistant and touchable.  Adds texture and natural shine.  Plus is contains protective sunscreens.

Cassandra's Review-  This hairspray works like with excellent hold that is strong enough to stay but gentle enough to tough.  It smells so good.  It is extremely flammable so use with caution if you by candles or flames.  You can lightly wet your fingers or a brush and then mist this on and blow dry. If you do not own a blow dryer this will still work with professional results.

Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL Anti Wrinkle Serum Review and Giveaway

Azure Naturals provides premium quality facial skincare and anti-aging products using natural and organic ingredients whenever possible. We are committed to delivering the finest skin care system and making sure that our clients are 100% satisfied with the results. Our customers are looking for better health and better skin and the solutions that we develop will always be designed around these elements. We appreciate those who are taking the journey with us to return to your youth.

Azure Naturals ULTIMATE RETINOL (1 oz size)

VITAMIN A WORKS! Retinol is one of the most effective ingredients for reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A is proven to improve pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, skin tone, color, as well as increase your skins hydration levels. ULTIMATE RETINOL is the most advanced Retinol product currently available. We have designed a delivery system that allows very high strength 2.5% Retinol to be used around the eyes and even by people with sensitive skin.

HOW DOES IT WORK? Cellular renewal happens continuously when we're young, but as we age the skin's ability to renew itself slows down. Retinol has a very small molecular structure that allows it to deeply penetrate your skin activating collagen and elastin. Applied at night ULTIMATE Retinol will increase your skin's moisture, promoting cellular turnover and renewal.

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE! Made in the USA With The Highest Quality Natural and Organic Ingredients Available: 97% Natural, 72% Organic. Contains No Alcohol, No Parabens, Plant Based, No GMO's, Cruelty Free and Never Tested On Animals!

HOW DO YOU RECEIVE OPTIMAL RESULTS? Start using in your late twenties or early thirties. Early use of Retinol can combat fine lines before they become apparent. If you don't have prior experience using Retinol products start slowly and be consistent with your use. Apply a small amount every other day, after a couple of weeks you can begin applying more frequently as your skin adapts. Just like exercise, it is very important to use your skin care products consistently. If you do experience any irritation decrease usage for a few days and work your way back up after that.

Cassandra's Review-  The product is worth paying a little more for.  You are going to see results in just a short time.  There is not going to be sticky residue or gunk on your face or skin when applying this. It absorbs fast with limited gentle rubbing.  I had no breakouts or skin irritation even on my more sensitive areas. The is no really harsh smell and this can be used nightly and with toner.

Cassandra's Review-  Obviously I could not personally review this. I am friends with a married couple that was more than willing to help me out with this review.   Results were told to me. Apparently the increase in vigor and energy in the male who tested this was so great that the female was beyond pleased and highly recommended it. There was no adverse reaction and they will be buying more in the future.

1600mg Garcinia Cambogia Pure Extract

GET YOUR FIGURE BACK WITH OUR MAXIMUM STRENGTH FORMULA - See Amazing Weight Loss Results! - Garcinia Cambogia 1600 mg is a great value product, containing 60 percent more milligrams than other leading products. The bottle contains 120 veggie capsules. Compare how much value you can get.
WHY DO MOST DIETS FAIL? - Most manufacturers entice customers promising with weaker refinement. When you're using products that don't work and you don't even have time for exercise, your dieting efforts won't work, and won't last. You need to use a proven, effective supplement to make it possible for you to succeed. Our non-stimulating product is proven to help you lose weight, even without a change in your diet or exercise routine.
PROMOTES A SKINNIER, YOUNGER, AND HEALTHIER YOU - Clinical studies have proven this product stops cravings and anxiety-related snacking. It prevents new fat formation and burns off belly fat in natural way. Enjoy a reduced appetite, more energy, and fewer cravings. Wouldn't you feel great if you could be naturally vibrant every day, with an increased metabolism?
ZERO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS, ZERO FILLERS, AND ZERO PRESERVATIVES - The Garcinia Cambogia fruits are harvested only in a trusted source that can provide the highest potency ingredients. We implement the strictest quality controls to ensure the absolute premium quality of our ingredients. The highest potency is extracted under the GMP regulations and the FDC registrations in the USA.

Garcinia Cambogia Extract contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA) derived from tamarind fruit. HCA plays a vital role to inhibit enzyme, and prevent new fat formation. It helps you burn off belly fat naturally before it can accumulate in your body. It will block sugar into fat, and turn sugar into energy. As you eat less, your body senses and releases stored fat from your cells. You will enjoy seeing your belly fat begins to shrink and feel more energy. HCA also boosts your serotonin levels. It is nature's natural 'feel good' mood enhancer. Serotonin promotes a sense of well-being and happiness, while also decreasing anxiety-related snacking.

The capsules contain Garcinia Cambogia Extract with high density HCA. Many products mention that it's better without the calcium, but that's not what Dr. Oz. said. In the TV show, it was clearly mentioned, "HCA will be observed better with Potassium and Calcium." "You want to make sure they are included." Each capsule contains 40 mg of Potassium and 40 mg of Calcium. The capsule is Vegetable Cellulose (veggie capsule). That is much better than regular capsule to observe HCA. Our product contains no preservatives, no additives, no filers and no artificial ingredients. It is 100% Natural.

As a standard dosage, take 1 capsule 30 to 90 minutes before each meal. As a stronger weight loss dosage, take 1 capsule before breakfast, 1 capsule before lunch, and 2 capsules before dinner. It has to be empty stomach because foods will combine into the ingredients of the supplement and it will lower the efficiency. Remember to drink a full glass of water (8 ounces) with it, and keep drinking a lot of water throughout day for optimal results.
Cassandra's Review- If you have a hard time swallowing a capsule, this is not the product for you.  I drink plenty of water while taking this.  Your going to have to put in work to keep your weight down.  It can be extremely effective when taken as directed, but everyone is different and take different supplements and medicine so I would recommend talking with your doctor if your going to try this for the first time to make sure it is right for you.

Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup Review

Proven Weight Loss Results:
Daily intake of Yacon Syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index (BMI), according to a 2009 scientific study published in Clinical Nutrition.
It is low glycemic, low carb and low in calories (13 calories per serving), Yacon Syrup is truly a gift from nature.  There are no artificial flavors, preservatives or binders added.
What is Yacon Syrup?
Yacon Syrup originates from the Yacon plant (pronounced yah-KON) of the Andes Mountains in Peru and has been part of the Andean diet for hundreds of years. The yacon juices are extracted from the roots of the yacon plant, then filtered and evaporated in a process very similar to the way Maple syrup is made.
The Yacon plant looks similiar to a sweet potato.
How Does It Help with Weight Loss?
Yacons contain a high level of fructooligosaccharides, which are natural sugars commonly found in plants. The body resists the process to breakdown these sugars by enzymes during digestion and passes them through the body quickly without retaining the full caloric intake.  Because the sugar in Yacon Syrup isn’t digested like normal foods, you can enjoy sweetness without the calories.
SCIENTIFIC STUDY-published in Clinical Nutrition Journal:
Obese and slightly dyslipidemic pre-menopausal women were studied over a 120-day period in a double-blind placebo-controlled experiment. Two doses of yacon syrup were used, 0.29g and 0.14g fructooligosaccharides/kg/day.
At the start and end of the study, anthropometric measurements, blood glucose, calcium, lipid and insulin concentrations and Homeostasis Model Assessment index were determined.
The recommended daily consumption of yacon syrup with no undesirable gastrointestinal effects is 0.14g fructooligosaccharides/kg.
Daily intake of yacon syrup produced a significant decrease in body weight, waist circumference and body mass index over the 120 day period.
Yacon syrup is a good source of fructooligosaccharides and its long-term consumption produced beneficial health effects on obese pre-menopausal women with insulin resistance.
Recommended Uses:
Skip the calories and carbohydrates by replacing your sugar consumption with Yacon Syrup.

Replace sugar with Yacon Syrup while baking things like cookies, cakes, pies, cobblers, brownies—you name it!  Replace sugar or honey with Hermosa Peak Yacon Syrup in salad dressings, marinades and bbq sauces.  Use in place of your regular syrup on pancakes and waffles.   Like Agave, it’s great with coffee or tea.    Take one teaspoon before each meal, three times per day.

Cassandra's Review- I love the taste of this on my pancakes.  I thought at first from the look of the bottle that it would have a medicinal taste. It does not.  You can use it in just about anything that you would put sugar in, I would however not overdue the use of this.  It is only to be taken as recommended and may cause diarrhea if used too often during the day.  Be careful if you have an allergy to yacon.

Will's General Green Coffee Bean Extract Review

Green Coffee works as a fat-burner, appetite suppressant and mood enhancer. That power combination of effects is what allows people to lose weight!
The key ingredient in the green coffee bean is a natural active compound called chlorogenic acid which helps your block your bodys ability to store fat and also supercharges your metabolism to burn more fat.Coffee beans are actually green seeds inside a bright red berry. To create green coffee bean extract, the seeds are left unroasted. Instead they're soaked and then concentrated to create the green coffee extract.!
When taken regularly, Green Coffee Extract blocks fat from being made and instead converts it into glycogen, which is an energy source that the helps your body burn fat faster, thus supporting the amazing weight-loss results!

Cassandra's Review- I have never tried Green Coffee capsules before this review.  I had not stomach trouble and even though I drank plenty of water while taking this, I did not have to go to the bathroom a whole lot more then normal.  It is shown to help you lose a little weight and for some people a lot of weight.  I think that you really have to be committed to a strict daily diet and exercise routine for this to work its best. I wondered about the chance of caffeine content included and it does have less than 2% but if your sensitive to caffeine be careful with how many you take.

Cassandra's Review- The label on this product is cool looking, but I do not think your going to achieve a body like that while taking this product.  I could be wrong but you would have to be a weight lifter or seriously exercising lot.  Do not think that you can just buy this and lose all kinds of weight while gaining major muscle, it simply does not work like that.  You are going to have to work hard and take these as a helper to get to your goal.   They will work and help most people. I would recommend drinking plenty of water;and consulting your doctor if your not sure of how or what you are allergic to.

Cassandra's Review- As we all have different skin types and conditions this product will work differently on everyone as well.  It is a capsule so you must be able to swallow them.  It will not work overnight, but with continued doses it will show improvement in as little as two weeks, perhaps sooner for some.  I always try these types of products with a lot of water. This did not cause stomach discomfort or nausea. I also did not have to eat anything before or after taking this, to stop any type of discomfort.
