iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex Review.


After reading all the great reviews about iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex I was dying to try it. While browsing the skinmedix site I also noticed it has gained the attention of some major magazines. I am a sucker for a good  review and was anxious to try it out.

I have extremely sensitive eyes so I have a hard time finding eye creams that work and don’t burn or irritate my eyes. After using iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex for just over two weeks  I’ve noticed right away how it hydrated my skin, and reduced the puffiness I have even noticed a softening of the fine lines around my eyes  and absolutely no irritation!

One of the main ingredients  is a strain of red marine algae which helps to strengthen the skin by triggering the collagen replenishment cycle. Whatever magic they use I really love how it combats my puffy eyes.  Right away the cream is working and my skin feels soft, smooth and moisturized it even works great under makeup!

iS Clinical Youth Eye Complex is a breakthrough formula that utilizes “intelligent proteins” to combat the signs of aging at a cellular level. These proteins are clinically proven to target damaged sites and help regenerate skin. Powerful peptides, key growth factors and potent antioxidants rapidly reduce wrinkles, puffiness and dark under-eye circles to keep skin moist, smooth and protected all day long.

New! Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire

Not sure what I love more the video or the bottle, can’t wait to check it out in person. 

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire
An absolutely essential and utterly irresistible perfumed creation. The legendary heart-shaped bottle has been boldly reinterpreted with a modern touch. Its crystalline transparency, fading from black to powdery pink, reveals the silhouette of the little, black dress.

Its simple signature enhances and romances several exceptional materials in a bold overdose—black cherry blinks the first wink. It is illustrated by a clever blend that extends exquisite almond and delicious berries. The second wink takes place as rose enters the stage. Finally, the shadowy temptations of licorice and smoky black tea are ever-so-revealing and lead to irresistible seduction. For the ultimate temptation, the entire creation is wrapped in Guerlinade—fresh, enigmatic, and exhilarating, mischievous and captivating.

Fresh. Enigmatic. Exhilarating


DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer Review!

Skinmedix was kind enough to give MakeHerUp a chance to try their fabulous online beauty site. They have so many awesome products but even better they have a great website. I have left so many online stores frustrated trying to navigate their site but I loved the setup at Skinmedix. I really like being able to shop by category, product and my absolute favorite by award winners. Once I had ordered my skincare products they came really fast, and inside the box all my products were in a cute gift bag with tissue paper and some really cool samples.

SkinMedix only carries the world’s leading anti-aging cosmeceuticals normally available only through physicians’ offices and high-end spas at much higher prices. What sets us apart is that we are an online store, so we are able to maintain low overhead costs – which means better prices on amazing products for all!



I was excited to try DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer but with the hefty price tag I  set the bar pretty high on my expectations. I have always had large pores and have used a multitude of products to combat their appearance. While a lot of them can hide my pores fairly well but I had yet to find something to actual shrink them.

That is until I tried DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer. I am truly amazed by the difference in my pores. In the two weeks I have been using DDF I have really noticed my pore size shrinking. With makeup on that are barely noticeable at this point and I don’t  need to layer a pore minmizer over my foundation. The formula itself is so light and airy it feels great on my skin and absorbs really fast. Its a big bottle and you need just a small amount to cover your whole face, if you have a problem with pores this is a must try.

DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer instantly minimizes the look of pores while it exfoliates and hydrates to continually diminish the appearance of wrinkles. This treatment provides immediate gratification with long-term results for younger, more flawless looking skin – a now and later approach to anti-aging. DDF Wrinkle Resist Plus Pore Minimizer serum contains a gel phase with a vitamin peptide complex that hydrates to allow for the natural regeneration of collagen to refine the appearance of wrinkles. The formula also has surface diffusing molecules that provide a smoothing effect and diffract light to instantly minimize the appearance of pores.


Doubles skin surface renewal rate in just 5 days.
Visibly reduces pore size instantly and over time.
Immediate and long-term visible wrinkle refinement.
Clinical Results After 3 Weeks:

70% improvement in lines and wrinkles.
65% reduction in pore size.
65% improvement in overall appearance.
Size: 50 ml / 1.7 oz

New! Lancôme La Vie Est Belle.


I am excited to try this out, the Iris notes sound really intriguing. I am a little hesitant about the Patchouli but am interested to see how all these notes blend.
