Azure Naturals ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Skin Repair Serum Review + Giveaway

Do you remember how I blogged about Azure Naturals ULTIMATE HYALURONIC ACID Serum before? Well, let me introduce their another product, "Ultimate C skin repair serum".

VITAMIN C WORKS! This serum will increase cellular renewal by boosting the production of collagen and elastin. Vitamin C, Ferulic Acid, and Vitamin E are all powerful anti-oxidants that when combined can provide up to eight-fold antioxidant protection, 96% reduction of sunburn cells, and prevent the formation of free radicals in sun exposed skin. This serum is intentionally designed to be thin, but not greasy or watery. This is the optimal consistency for a Vitamin C serum and allows the potent ingredients to deeply penetrate your skin to repair sun and other environmental damage, while boosting production of new collagen and elastin.

WHY AZURE NATURALS? 100% guaranteed to be the fastest working and most effective Vitamin C Serum on the market today. Compare our ingredients to similar product from Skinceuticals, Obagi, and PerriconeMD. Not only will you find we have superior organic and natural ingredients our Vitamin C serum is $80 to $130 less expensive per bottle! More expensive does not mean it works any better! If you don't care about wasting money, you should still buy our product because it works better! You can donate $100 you save to charity!

HOW DO YOU RECEIVE OPTIMAL RESULTS? Just like exercise, it is very important to use your skin care products consistently. VITAMIN C serum can be applied twice per day in the morning and at night. If you only use the serum once do so in the morning. Vitamin C serum will help protect you against future sun damage and other environmental stressors, but it is definitely not a substitute for sun screen! Your skin’s texture should start to improve with the first application, but give your skin at least 30 days of consistent use to see the optimal results. Follow with our ULTIMATE HYALURONIC Moisturizer, ULTIMATE RETINOL, or another good moisturizer. Our Vitamin C serum is safe for all skin types and conditions including dry or irritated skin, wrinkles, fine lines, dull complexion, acne, and eczema, etc. You should not experience any dryness, but if you do you are most likely applying too much of the serum. If you have dry skin start slowly, especially around any areas that are prone to dryness. You can begin to apply more serum gradually as your skin adjusts.

About a week ago, I had yelp elite tasting event at Old School eatery. This place is brand new, just opened. Since it's "old school eatery", I was expecting to have milkshake and burgers or something, but the menu was completely different from what I expected. Still, I liked deviled eggs and croquettes.

They have nice patio area.

Fresh Fruit Vinegars by Mange

I received samples of white peach and green apple fresh fruit vinegars.
I tried both of them, and you can really taste fruits, like peach really tastes peach. Since I didn't have anything to marinade, I drizzled over kale salad and it's refreshing.

All natural, gluten-free, Kosher, and made without preservatives or synthetic dyes.

From drizzling over salads to flavoring marinades to mixing with liquor and pouring over ice for a refreshing cocktail – fresh fruit vinegars will leave you wanting more.

Fresh Fruit Vinegars bring the true taste of fruit to your plate. Great for cocktails and meals giving them that extra fruit punch!

I made kale salad using this dressing.

Simple to use and highly versatile, fresh fruit vinegars are light enough to drink from a spoon, yet strong enough to marinate a ceviche.
From home cooks to professional chefs, Mangé’s full line of fresh fruit vinegars offer eleven flavors that are sure to please every palate, including: Blackberry, Blood Orange, Cherry, Fig, Green Apple, Mango, Passion Fruit, Pear, Raspberry, Red Pepper and White Peach.
Unlike other infused or syrup-based fruit vinegars, Mangé’s fresh fruit vinegars are made using fruit that has been picked at its peak, puréed and preserved in vinegar. The process allows the vinegar to capture the essence of each fruit’s natural flavor, creating a brilliant burst of fruitful flavor that can be added to any appetizer, entrée, dessert or cocktail.

Baking with Organic Black Matcha powder + GIVEAWAY


You know about green tea powder but how about black matcha? I recently received it and I didn't know about it until now.

Matcha DNA tea is organically grown and hand picked. It can been made as delicious tea, latte, martini or used in food like green tea ice cream and cooking. Few people know that the current practice of drinking powdered tea in the Japanese tea ceremony is actually from the song dynasty in China. It dates back to over 1,000 years ago. This practice was carried on in Japan and is now considered a pillar of Japanese culture. Today. once again high quality Matcha is being made in China. The tea has a slightly different character than its Japanese counterpart. Both teas have a deep green color and thick, savory taste and texture. Both are high in EGCG and antioxidants. However, this Chinese MatchaDNA is smoother, without the bitterness, and has rich, smooth and fresh taste unlike any other!

This black matcha was totally different from any other green tea matcha. It tastes like hojicha and I love it. I really wanna make latte with it but since I didn't have any milk at home, I used it for baking.
