Curtain Call: JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel

Today’s post is an edition of Curtain Call. It’s on a product that I got from my ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag. Here’s what I think of JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel.

What I love about this product? It comes with a nice little dropper that makes me feel this is more sanitary than other forms of packaging. A little goes a long way. I use 2 drops from the dropper to dispense a generous amount of the clear gel to apply all over my face. I use this immediately after washing and drying my face at night for almost 3 weeks. I can see the smell being “marine” but I only acknowledge that after knowing the product name and description. Without knowing it, I would probably go with a clean, natural-ish scent that I may have just chalked it up as lightly herbal…maybe. Now on the effectiveness of this — I do notice my skin to be very hydrated and looking slightly plumper the next morning than when I wasn’t using it. BUT I do get the same effect with several other kinds of products that promises to do the same thing. Hyaluronic acid is the magic ingredient that I look for in a lot of skincare products for the face these days and marine collagen is something new to me but both promises slowing down aging. I only had about 3 weeks worth in this small bottle so my opinions are based on that short of a time frame. I would suggest reading up on other reviews online that have used this for about 2 months or more as many product benefits from various skincare items typically show up completely by then for a better measure of effectiveness in results.

What I don’t like about this product? If I have to be really picky, the price. But honestly it is not that pricey overall when compared to other products that delivers similar results.

More information on this item and other products the brand carries is available on their website here.

ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag

Hey y’all! I just got this in the mail 2 days ago and am about to start using some of what I got. Here’s my take on the ipsy March 2017 Glam Bag.

The bag looks quite cute — like a beehive pattern! And it’s bigger than past ipsy bags, which I like a lot. But the material is prone to snagging for me so we’ll see if I’m going to actually use it or not. First item that caught my eye is the theBalm Bahama Mama Bronzer. I LOVE the cute packaging they always have! This is a keeper for me. Next up is the So Susan Blush & Glow. I will look up for reviews and swatches on this before I open it. The shade I got this in is called Rose Rust. Then we have Marc Anthony True Professional Deep Repair Aloe Vera & Jasmine Oil Deep Repairing Conditioning Treatment. I generally haven’t found anything from this brand that I dislike so I’ll be trying this out shortly and post my review on it. Next we have the JeNu High Tech Beauty Marine Collagen Mineral Gel. This is the type of product I’m looking for these days. I already started using it today. I put it on before I apply moisturizer. Last up is The Skone Cosmetics Luxe Pro Blending Brush. I retook the quiz again on ipsy as I thought I’ve said before that I didn’t want more makeup brushes yet I keep getting them still. This one goes into my extra random gifting pile.
