Juvalips verdict

Hello everyone,

again a long time but finally am posting my trial of the Juvalips, natural lip plumping device.  

I bought it quite a while ago and tried it on a couple of occasions.  The packaging is lovely and has very easy to follow instructions.  Honestly let's face it.  It's not brain surgery.


Basically it's a little battery operated machine that fits just around your mouth and sucks your lips into the little space at the top of the device.

It doesn't bruise nor hurt.  Just feels a little weird whilst it's doing its thing.  The "vaccum" lasts for approximately 60 seconds and will automatically stop.

You can do two cycles one after the other but it's not recommended to do more than two.

Here are my results.

Before/"natural" with a little lip balm

Cycle 1.

Yes you can see the marks around the outside of my mouth but they go away very quickly.

Cycle 2.

Finished with lipstick

As you can see significant improvement of my upper lip.  Smoother and much fuller without having a trout pout!

Left it for a week or so and then tried again.

Same result.  Verdict?  I actually really, really like it!

Easy to use, keep clean.  You get replacement felt pads and the mouthpiece comes off so you can clean it.  All in all I think worth the investment!  Can be purchased from the Juvalips website and retails at around $99.95 for the basic pack.  You even get a pair of AAA batteries to get you started.

Again I have not been paid to use this product.  I bought this myself as I have tried so many products to keep my lips fuller.

Well that's it for now.

Until next time.

Face Halo make up removal sponge review

Hello everyone,

I hope the new year has started well for you all.  May 2018 bring you much love, joy,
health and happiness.

Now, after hearing a little buzz and a heads up by a friend who came across this, I have had a chance to use the Face Halo make up removing sponge.  According to the site "Face Halo’s HaloTech fibers get into your pores and will remove all your makeup better than anything else".  A tall order as most of the time I struggle with mascara removal even with a good cream cleanser.  
So was a little skeptical. 

After the first use I was quite impressed on how much of my make up it removed.  Even the mascara!  Tried all different kinds of mascaras except waterproof and it removed everything.  I tried waterproof eyeliner as well and yes it removed that also.  Although it did require a little more work.  But still not fully convinced I used a toner afterwards and there was nothing on my cotton pad.  So the next day after using the sponge I used micellar water cleanser and still nothing!!!  

Just to shake things up I used micellar water last night, and then used the halo face sponge there was still make up left behind!  So I can sincerely it definitely removes all my make up.  For those who are curious I use a mineral make up powder foundation, liquid concealer and powder bronzer and blusher.

Sooo my verdict I really like it!  It gently exfoliates my face so my skin looks great and uptakes my moisturiser quickly.  I have to use much less to get the same result.  BONUS!

You can purchase them from and they price is very reasonable.  A pack of 3 for $22 USD.  They are machine washable (although the site recommends no fabric softener).  I wash mine in the shower as soon as I've used it and then throw it into the machine at the end of the week (as per the site's instructions).

Honestly for the price point I'm quite happy.  They are small, ideal for travel and easy to keep clean.  I wish this was around a long time ago!  Please jump onto their website to read about the product and view their videos.  Hint: the orange test is what convinced me!

Again just so you're aware I bought these myself.  This is not a sponsored review in any way.

Well until next time stay safe.
