Halloween Safely Tips:
Improve Your Nighttime Driving: To overcome the challenges associated with nighttime driving, Dr. Christina Schnider O.D., Senior Director, Professional Communications for VistaKon Division of Johnson and Johnson Vision Care, Inc., advises driving more slowly and accounting for the need for extra time and distance between cars. In addition, those with an uncorrected or under corrected vision problems should withhold from driving in the dark. For more information on driving safely in the dark tune into this podcast.
Safety-Proof Your Kid's Costume: When it comes to safety, no costume is complete without reflective tape for enhanced visibility. John Ulczycki, Vice President - Strategic Initiatives, National Safety Council, recommends dressing your children in a costume that provides contract and reflectivity by incorporating light colors and using reflective tape on areas of their body that will be moving.
Keeping a Flashlight Handy: Before a night of trick-or-treating, make sure your children are armed with a flashlight, along with a fresh set of batteries. Glow in the dark accessories can also be a fun and festive way to enhance visibility on Halloween night.
Cosmetic Contact Lenses without a Prescription? Eye don't think so: In the United States, all contact lenses, even purely cosmetic ones, require a prescription. If cosmetic lenses are a part of your children's Halloween costume, make sure they have been prescribed and properly fitted by an Eye Care Professional. A great resource to learn more about how to properly wear and take care of lenses is "Healthy Vision & Contact Lenses".
Check Before You Treat: Before your trick-or-treater digs into their Halloween goodies, make sure you've sorted through the selection and removed unsealed or expired items. Since Halloween can be an especially scary time for children with food allergies, make sure to check all ingredients included or simply swap out their goodies with a bag of safe alternatives.

Yumi Beautiful Rose Hip Oil

Please don't forget to enter Mont Bleu Glass Nail File Set Giveaway. It ends October 30, 2014 at 11:59 p.m. PST (Pacific time).


I am fortunate to work with Yumi Beautiful from Amazon. I received rose hip oil.
Product Review: Yumi Beautiful Organic Rose Hip Seed Oil

Where to purchase: online on amazon.com
Price: $12.99 for 1 fl oz/ 30 mL

Product of Chile

Description from the press kit:
What Makes Yumi Rose Hips Serum So Special?
Organic, cold-pressed rose hip oil is a natural source of antioxidants, Vitamin C, and Trans-Retinoic Acid (a type of vitamin A that retinol converts to).
What you'll love about Rose Hip Oil is how beautifully and easily it absorbs into your skin to help keep your skin hydrated and elastic, minimizing the appearance of flaws.
* Bring vitality to dehydrated, sensitive and mature skin.
* Reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and fine lines over time.
* Perfect for environmental stressors that can lead to wrinkles.
* Awesome as a spot treatment for discoloration.
Ingredients:

Thoughts: I have never tried rose hip oil and for that reason, I was excited to try this product.
It comes in a dropper and you have full control of the quantity you pump. I'm not too sure if I got a bad dropper or not, but I have to move quickly from the packaging to my hand. It doesn't completely hold the product. It drips little by little, but it's not bothersome at all. I just have to be quick.
Here's a swatch of the product on my hand. The consistency of the product is on the medium.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it has a strong scent. I cannot distinguish the scent. It's something I have never smelled before. All I could say it's on the musky side. In all honesty when I first tried this product, the scent was overbearing. With time and usage, it became bearable. Secondly, the feel and the concept of this oil reminds me of Bio-Oil. I remember when Bio-Oil was so popular here. It kind of calmed down or maybe it's just me thinking that. Anyways, it looks and feels like an oil. It takes some time to absorb onto your skin. You have to massage until it's absorbed. The pro to that is you're massaging your skin. It's good to circulate the blood. The con is if you're like me, it takes too much time. Once it's absorbed, it still leaves a greasy feel. The skin looks youthful and glowy. Lastly, I haven't been consistent with this product. Actually, I just haven't been consistent with skin care regimen. I told myself I have to be better. It's been extremely hard with my tiredness. I need to fix that. I'm working on that. That's another story. For that reason, I cannot say it has completely been working for me. I do notice my skin feeling more hydrated. That's a good start!

Pros:
* Comes in a dropper; full control of the quantity being pumped.
* Sanitary safe.
* Medium consistency.
* Need to massage to absorb the product; good for circulation.
* Skin looks youthful.
* Skin glows.
* Hydrates the skin.
* Cool sensation; need to put in the refrigerator after it's opened.
* Cruelty-free.

Cons:
* Can only be purchased on amazon.
* Strong musky scent.
* Slight greasy feel.

Would repurchase: Maybe.
