Hyaluronic Acid Serum For Skin by VoilaVe


I have not tried any other Hyaluronic Acid Serums so I honestly did not know what to expect. I do like that it isn’t sticky and it easily absorbs into my skin. I like to use it with my typical skincare routine in the evening. The Hyaluronic Acid Serum  is slightly thicker than I expected but it is not greasy so I don’t mind it being thicker than I expected it to be. I also like that it does not have any unnecessary fillers and it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. It also seems to work great for me on puffiness under the eyes! That alone make is a Beauty Must-Have in my book!

ORGANIC Rosehip Oil by VoilaVe A Beauty Must-Have!


I am new to using Rosehip Oil but I really like how this product leaves my skin feeling softer. I am trying it out on the fine lines on my face. I just started using it this past week so there isn’t much of a difference yet but I am truly optimistic and hopeful. You only need to use a little at a time and it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on my face. I also love that it can be used in the bath but I like using it on my face the best! It seems very fresh but the scent is not bad or overbearing, which I really like. I think with time, it may even help with those fine lines on my face!
