Review: Gel Nail Polish Starter Kit

I wanted to share my best Amazon purchase in 2020. Prior to Covid-19 I use to get my nails done at a salon, I had araylic nails for a very long time. A reason being I don’t have strong nails, every time I tried to grow them out after a certain length they would just break. Time to time I would give my nails a break from the acrylic and I would just do shellac as regular nail polish never lasts on my nails. Well, prior to our first lockdown, I went and removed my acrylic’s and got shellac put on. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to get them done again, but wanted to be able to have pretty nails. After sometime I removed the shellac and had bare nails. I wanted tone able to do my nails at home with a gel/shellac polish, something that was fast and easy. I turned to Amazon and searched and checked out reviews for all Gel Nail Polish sets and I came across this one which was a great starter kit.

This set includes 6 Colors of Gel Polish plus a Top & Base Coat, 36Watt UV LED Lamp (18 LEDS lights), basic nail manicure tools to get you a at home manicure plus tools to help with creating nail designs. Can be used for your hands and feet. LED Lamp comes with a 30 and 60 seconds time buttons. Full instructions included to guide you to use it for the first time. It is truly simple, I only reviewed them for the first time I opened the package to be sure I am doing it right and it was clear and easy. I have not had to refer to them again. I have included the direct link to the one I went with here.

Let me tell you I love it so much and so happy with my purchase.This is something great to have on hand, even when normal life returns and we are able to go to nail salons again. It will continue to be very handy as a busy mom of four I don’t always have time to get to the salon, so in those occasions I have options at home. Now, I must say I got use to having short nails and kind of loving it. So I know I will get much use of this even when life is back to normal. I have saved so much money on doing my nails myself. I love that I can have pretty nails quick at home.

It works amazing and the nail polishes hold so well. I am so impressed with the quality that I have ordered many more different color polishes to add to my growing collection. My 14 year old daughter is also getting a lot of use from it. If your looking for that salon nail look at home I have recommend this product.

Review: Ubitree

I have acne prone skin, so I am always looking for skin care products and gadgets to help with preventing it. I found this Ubitree from Amazon with great reviews and thought I would give it a try. I love creating self care days at home where I pamper my skin. At first I had my doubts, but after learning to use it correctly I am pretty impressed.

It comes with different heads, Large Circular, Small, and Oval. It also has 5 levels of intensity. The recommendations are to stream your face or use hot press cloth to open your pores. I do mine after a nice hot shower. It can exfoliate dead skin, remove blackheads, grease, and acne. As per the ad it claims, it can also reduce acne, shrink pores, tighten skin, & erase wrinkles. I do notice a big difference in my acne and pores. I use it mainly for those reasons, any added features are a bonus. I also have a daily face care routine, but I have always. Since I hit my 30’s I have taken face care more seriously and always stay on top of it. I have been using this for well over 6 months now. I have taken so long to review it on the blog because I wanted to give it a fair chance. Sometimes we need more time to test the certain products/items out to give it an honest review.

The different heads are for the following;
1.Large Circular Head- Can remove stubborn blackheads, acne, and grease.
2.Small Circle Head-Suitable for sensitive skin
3.Oval Hole Head-Make your skin more elastic and compact, perfect for your T-zone area.
The heads are all removable and can be washed and disaffected.

The different levels of suction are;
Level 1 Sensitive and dry skin
Level 2 & 3 Neutral skin
Level 4 & 5 Mixed skin type & oily skin.

It is so satisfying to see everything that the machine can get out, yes gross to see how much comes out, but good to know it’s out. Don’t let the suction sit in one spot to avoid bruising.Work it from the inner part of your face outwards. I would not say that this replaces face treatments done at the spa by a professional, but it is a good tool to have on hand for those in-between visits or if it is not in your budget (facials) to be doing as often as soon do, you can save some money by using this. It can be used with batteries or a usb cable. I use mine with the usb cable and it works great. I recommend this machine if your looking to up your skin care game. Please read all instructions it comes with to avoid bruising &/or using it wrong. I am not a professional and all opinions given are just from my experiences.
