My Nightly Skincare Routine with SwissVita US

skincare routine SwissVita

I have to be honest. I am always on the lookout for new beauty products. I definitely change up my skincare routine pretty frequently. I’ll be 50 in two months 😮 My skin is starting to show typical signs of aging – uneven skin tone, age spots, loss of moisture. However, I can also still have small acne breakouts from time to time.  Que frustrant!!

I was thrilled when SwissVita US asked me to try out a couple of products from their skincare line.

About SwissVita US

All SwissVita US products contain AC-11®, a derivative of Uncaria Tomentosa, or cat’s claw, which is known for its anti-inflammatory properties. According to SwissVita US:

AC-11® is cellular care that begins where antioxidant benefits end. This Amazon rainforest herb enhances your ability to self-heal by naturally supporting your DNA repair capacity.

The two products I received were the facial cleanser and the dark spot corrector.  Here’s what the company says about their facial cleanser:

Deep cleans and removes face and eye makeup without stripping away your natural protective oils.

It contains:

✦ (AC-11®) Uncaria Tomentosa Extract reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving skin feeling silky soft.

 ✦Moringa Pterygosperma Seed Extract contains antioxidants like Vitamin C that repair skin and restore its youthful moisture and dewy glow.

 ✦Malic Acid gently exfoliates your face, minimizes the appearance of pores, and improves your skin’s appearance.

 ✦Glycolic Acid improves your skin’s texture by removing dead skin cells, leaving skin bright and clear.

 ✦Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid diminishes the appearance of wrinkles and infuses the skin with moisture and improves its firmness.

And here’s what they have to say about the SwissVita US dark spot corrector:

No one wants sun spots, dark circles, acne hyperpigmentation, or an uneven skin tone to be the first thing people notice. AC-11, in combination with other skin-loving ingredients, can diminish those dark spots and improve skin’s overall radiance and appearance.

In addition to AC-11, it contains:

  • Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil helps reduce inflammation in blemishes and helps heal them faster.
  • Citrus Aurantifolia (Lime) Fruit Extract has antioxidant benefits and also lightens dark pigmentation.

My Skincare Routine:

My skincare routine has four items – makeup remover, cleanser, dark spot corrector and moisturizing cream. Some skincare experts recommend using the products twice a day, but for me, that frequency is a little harsh. Instead, every morning I just splash some cold water on my face and pat dry. I save my skincare routine for the evening, when I have the most time and my skin needs it most.

Coobie Seamless Bra Review

coobie seamless bra review

I haven’t done a bra review in 4 1/2 years.  I kind of gave up. Except for different colors and patterns, there hasn’t been a lot of new technology in bras, especially in the larger sizes (D+). It was all underwires and armor-plated padding. So I was a bit skeptical when the folks at Coobie asked me to review their Coobie Scoopneck Bra in full size.

About the Product:

The Scoopneck bra is seamless, with no hooks or clasps. Straps are adjustable and removable and each has removable, reversible padding. The pads stay in place with the versatile pocket that can be used to hold prosthetics in place of the pads. The fabric is made of an ultra soft nylon and spandex blend. The full size has a fuller cut (for 38A to 48DD). In addition, straps are now sewn in the front and are a bit wider as well. The bra comes in 32 different colors and patterns. Coobie bras come in eight different styles, most of which also come in full size.

My Review:

Here’s what the bra looked like, out of the package:

Moment of truth. I am a 36D. Not large, but definitely small. This bra just did not look like it would have enough support. I was also concerned how it would be pulling it over my head.

Boy was I surprised. I had no problem getting the Coobie seamless bra over my head, or even over my chest. I tried it without the pads to start. I won’t show you that picture. Suffice it to say if you are larger and older, you should probably use the pads.

Here’s what I look like wearing the bra, with the pads inserted into the pockets:

This bra is surprisingly supportive (with the pads in) and super comfortable. Normally at the end of the day I need to let the girls be free, but with the Coobie seamless bra, I actually forgot I was wearing a bra!

I received a bra at no charge in exchange for an honest review.  All opinions are 100% my own.
