    Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask Review

    When I think of healthy breakfast, yogurt and fruit tops the list. The benefits of yogurt are amazing- protein, calcium, vitamin D and probiotics. This would all definitely make up for a good system inside, but did you know that yogurt can make your skin glow too.  My grandma would always apply a layer of yogurt on face for an instant glow. She would call it a wonder mask which moisturizes, fights acne, relieve sunburn and is anti-aging. I have definitely tried it :) I just loved how it would smooth my skin out, but I hated all slimy thing getting into my eyes.

    I was looking for a yogurt based face mask and got a chance to try Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Repairing Mask. As soon as I opened the box, I was in love. It smell like a berry yogurt. Curbing the urge to eat it, I applied it on my face. Make sure you avoid eye area.  I let it on for 10 mins, and caught up on my favorite magazines.

    Then I rinsed my face with warm water. I was impressed, my skin felt moisturized and fresh. The mask has Berry extracts to deliver nutrition and antioxidants deep into the skin. I did use a toner before applying mask to get most benefits out of mask. I am planning to use it weekly and promote collagen production for firmer skin.

    So, if you are heading out for a party or want to keep your skin healthy and fresh, this product is what you need. You can buy it at target for around $25 and this would last for quite a few weeks.

    FIRST RESPONSE Early Result Pregnancy Test

    I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for First Response. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

            Having a child is a lifetime commitment. And after being together for 6 years with love of my life, I knew we were ready for it. It was the most exciting, but confusing time for us. We wanted to be pregnant right away. But after waiting few months, its hard to be patient, so I did start the calculated approach by charting my periods and tracking symptoms to try to pinpoint the fertile days each month.


              I still remember when you had to miss your period and wait much after it, to find out if you are pregnant. But throughout the years, pregnancy testing has changed drastically. From analog to digital tests, and detection after your missed period to before, the advancements are numerous. First Response has redesigned their advanced Early Detection Pregnancy Test in a way that will diminish those awkward and troublesome moments that come with determining pregnancy. Now, you can know you are pregnant as early as 6 days before you even miss your period.

              FIRST RESPONSE Early Result Pregnancy Test is sensitive enough to capture scant amounts of the pregnancy hormone, giving you results 6 days sooner than your missed period. No other test can do that. With these strips, you don't have to wake up early to pee and test can be taken at any time of day.

              I love the new longer handle, curved design with 50% wider tip that makes it easy to target urine stream without any mess. The new design has one large, easy-to-read window – two lines means pregnant; one line means not pregnant. This  gives results in 3 minutes with over 99% accuracy from the day of the expected period.

            When I was pregnant the first time, I had to wait few weeks after I miss my period, to get my ob/gyn appointment to confirm my pregnancy. These test strips are designed to detect all relevant forms of urinary hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) throughout pregnancy and are FDA approved. Now when we are trying for baby again, I am happy that I will know much before doctor confirms. The sooner I know I'm pregnant, the sooner I can begin making healthy pregnancy choices for myself and my baby that include: diet, nutrition and limiting your exposure to hazards. The first few weeks of pregnancy are critical to fetal development, so early prenatal care is important for a healthy birth weight.

           FIRST RESPONSE Early Result Pregnancy Test   kits are available at all major drugstores, mass and grocery stores and retails $8.99 - $15.99
