Press Sample

Read my full disclosure policy here.

Hey Belleza’s

I’m so excited to be able to share Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer’s Crooked Hearts Collection with you. This is my first time using her polishes and I have to say that I’m really impressed with them! The colors are pigmented, they all have a wonderful formula (not too runny or too thick) and they had great drying time.

I also found these colors to be pretty unique and not like anything that I have currently have in my nail polish collection, which is saying a lot because I have a LOT of polishes.

Youthful Skin with Revelations RX

This was sent to me for review purposes.

Hey Belleza’s

I have to start off by saying that I’m obsessed with facial masks! To be honest the weirder the mask looks the better, because I just love to scare my kids when they come running into my room during my “spa time”.  So I was super excited that I had the opportunity to try Revelations RX Facial Masks and Eye Masks. I wasn’t familiar with the company, but after finding out about them I decided to do a little research to make sure that this would be a product I wanted to try.

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-3

Let’s quickly get go into the how Revelations Rx is redefining skin care and then I’ll tell you my results.

What makes Revelations Rx different from other masks out there is that they were born out of wound care science and contains patented cell penetrating technology, getting more ingredients where they’re needed most.

Since the outer layer of your skin it tough, it acts like a barrier and prevents products from fully penetrating to the source of most skin concerns. Therefore, most topical products just sit on top of your skin. Their breakthrough technology overcomes this challenge by delivering more nourishing ingredients to the deeper layer that needs those most.

These unique masks are made of a material called biocellulose which is naturally derived from coconuts. It’s very soft, strong and absorbent; each facial mask applies 35mL of skin therapy serum which equals a full bottle of serum into your skin in under an hour! – RevelationsRX.com

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-4

So I started off by trying the Firming & Anti-Aging, at first I thought perhaps it would be your typical sheet mask, but a bit thicker. So color me surprised when I opened the mask and per the instructions removed one of the two sheets, I found what feels like a cross between a gel-silicone hybrid.

After applying the mask to my face, it took a bit to maneuver it on my face because it was a slightly too big for my face. But once I let it sit on my face for the first 5 minutes, I took off the top sheet (per the instructions) I was left with both the top and bottom being the gel-silicone like mask. It instantly conformed to my face (except for the top, my hair was in the wayJ) and I did not have to worry about it falling or sliding off at all.

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-1

This is before removing the outer layer. I felt like I looked like someone from a scary movie.

Since I wanted to get the full effects of the mask, I turned on a Lifetime movie, and allowed my face to fully absorb all the benefits that the mask has to offer.

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-2

Here’s after removing the outer layer. Can you tell how it has that gel like texture I was telling you about?

Once I took the mask off, I noticed that my skin had an overall smoother appearance and it felt a lot softer, and firm. Not only that, but my face felt a lot plumper.

A few days later I tried the Crow’s Feet & Fine Lines eye patches and oh baby, I love how the entire time I had them on (45 min) they delivered a soothing cooling sensation. Now I know I don’t have any crow’s feet or fine lines around my eyes (knock on wood) but early prevention is so important. I can’t say if these will work on those problems, but I can say that it left the skin around that area very smooth, firm, brighter and plump.

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-7

I look like I have parenthesis around my face.

Also included with the mask were the individual serums. The serums can be used at any time, over and under your makeup. I really liked how the metal roller ball made the application nice and smooth. Now don’t go to heavy on them like I did or they will leave your skin feeling a bit sticky.

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-5

Revelations-RX-Biocellulose-Mask-6

Overall, I really liked how my skin looked and felt after using these. Since I don’t have any fine lines, wrinkles or crow’s feet I can’t really say if it helps. However, the way it left my skin feeling plumper I honestly do think they would.

Do you want to give Revelations RX a try? Then here’s your chance! For a limited time you can receive $15 off each item on your first purchase, plus you’ll get a free trial of a complimentary mask! For example, buy an Anti-aging face mask, get $15 off and a free Crow’s feet eye mask set.  Now that’s a really great deal!
