A few weeks ago, I told you about my happy experience with Adeline Organic Eye Serum and it's healing effect on the area around the eye.
Earlier today, I gave you an account of my experience with Adeline Anti-aging Moisturizer Cream.
The focus of this review is my experience with Hyaluronic Acid Serum. THIS is the product that, in my opinion, is the most important of the three. THIS is the healer, if you will.
NATURAL NUTRITION for your skin - Hyaluronic Acid Serum contains Retinol, a blend of Vitamin A for elasticity, collagen formation, and sun damage repair; Vitamin C for improved moisture, elasticity, and tone; Vitamin D to moisturize skin and promote healing; Vitamin E for anti-oxidant protection and non-greasy moisture!
GENTLE on skin - will not sting or burn when applied! This is the best anti wrinkle and anti aging serum available on the market. Great for even sensitive skin!
(NOTE: I did experience tingling when first applying the Hyaluronic Acid Serum -- but my skin was not in great shape -- I'd been neglecting it. It did not burn or sting.)
EASY TO USE - just apply twice daily and enjoy tighter, toned, younger looking skin in the morning. Just 60 seconds a day is all it takes to reverse the signs of aging and turn heads with your radiant, youthful skin!
IMAGINE having a smooth, even skin tone and a glowing complexion... even when you're not wearing makeup! Age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and blemishes fade effortlessly with just twice daily usage!

Our customers discover they don't want or need to use any other creams on their face after using our skin cream.
SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN to double the amount of collagen needed to give the skin its elasticity. This means your wrinkles are going to fade and you will no longer be looking at celebrities and other women wondering how they look so young because you now know the secret. Start feeling more confident. Your search for the perfect anti-aging skin cream is over!
GET YOUR TIME BACK: After washing in the morning and evening, it takes just 30 seconds to gently apply the cream to your face, neck and decollete. Skin appears radiant and more plump after use.

Who doesn't just love the smell of a fresh, clean baby? I know I do. When Lizz was a baby, we didn't have too many baby-oriented products for bath time.
Times have changed. As always, Dial leads the way in developing products specially made for babies and young children.
They've recently introduced a product line just for Kids! There is even a Hello Kitty Line!
I was blessed to receive two new items. First, the Fragrance-free Body and Hair Wash:
and the Kids Waterymelon Foaming Hand Wash:
These products were developed alongside Pediatric Dermatologists, are hypoallergenic, paraben-free, ph balanced, and contain no dyes.
As soon as I opened the box, I knew that these will be perfect for my grand-daughter, Kinley.
I depend on Dial for Kids because I know they provide gentle, safe products for my family. I have no worries or concerns when using them. I can rest easy knowing that my grandbaby won't have irritated, red eyes or skin. She can play in the bath to her heart's content.

For myself, I received this silver Chain of Celebration necklace.

I AM A PLUS-SIZE WOMAN!
That's right -- you heard me! And I am just fed up with ugly "fat clothes". Just because I've gained (and kept) extra weight doesn't mean I don't want to look stylish and fashionable. I DO!
It's sometimes very difficult for women my size (smaller and larger) to find clothing that looks chic, upscale, and modern.
Wild orange florals are NOT for me. I look like a pumpkin. Black may be slimming but it's also rather maudlin at times. I love colours that whisper rather than shout. Comfort, too, is very important. I like clothes in which I can function: work, play, club, and travel.
Surfing the net for plus-size shops, I discovered, to my happy surprise, the amazing cushie b. I fell in love immediately. Beautiful clothes, thoughtfully designed. Clothes that will fit me and all of my plus-size sisters of the heart.
This is the divine Teal Blue/Navy Draped Kimono. Lovely, is it not?
It's also available in Silver Grey/Black and Deep Red/Wine in sizes 1X - 3X.
I was delighted when the folks at cushie b offered my the opportunity to review an item of clothing for them. I must've spent 2 hours trying to decide... I finally narrowed it down and asked them to choose for me!
When the package arrived... I actually cried.
I received the stunning Periwinkle Blue Cozy Draped Blanket Cardigan. Oh, how I wish that it was winter coming on and not summer! I want to wear this all the time.
The photos do NOT do this cardigan justice. It was a rather warm day, too. Darn it.
The back is long and covers my backside (thankfully). It will be such a blessing come the cold weather.
The Cozy draped blanket cardigan has a cable back yoke and ribbed sleeves. Made of 100% extra fine merino wool. It retails for $155.00 USD.
Please keep in mind that you are looking at a woman who is barely 5' 3" (Happy Husband claims I am only 5' 2"). This will definitely fit differently on a taller woman. I am wearing a 3X and truthfully wish I'd ordered a 2X. I've lost more weight than I thought!
As summer approaches, cushie b has some gorgeous Tops, Shoulder Tops, and Knitwear. All beautiful and all perfect for the plus-size woman!
DRUM ROLL PLEASE!
The generous folks at cushie b have kindly offered one of my readers the chance to win a lovely, stylish Tee from their shop! How amazing is that?
One lucky winner will be blessed with a High Low Hem Short Sleeve T-shirt in the size and colour of their shirt!
Available sizes 1X (14-16), 2X (18-20) , 3X (22-24). Colours: Black and Mediterranean Blue. Retails for $49.00

Author Rachel L Pires has written a great little book called Diet Enlightenment. It's a no-nonsense, common sense approach to weight loss.
Less than 200 pages, Rachel get right to the point: "Dieting" doesn't work. Conscious, thoughtful, responsible approaches are the keys to successful weight loss.
We must THINK about the foods we ingest daily. We must learn to count calories (actually a very simple task), we must learn to choose carefully the food we put on our plate.
Rachel teaches a positive mindset: She encourages her readers to actively demonstrate good eating choices until it becomes a natural occurrence.
This is no fly-by-night "diet" book that promises a miracle pill. Its a book filled with good advice, encouragement, and determination. She speaks WITH the readers, she doesn't lecture or demean the readers. I appreciate that.
You may purchase Diet Enlightenment by Rachel L. Pires on Amazon.com for the low price of just $11.48 for the paperback or $8.49 on Kindle.
I received a copy of Diet Enlightenment to facilitate this review. I received no monetary compensation. The opinions expressed herein are my own and based on my own use of and experience with the item.
