Adovia Eye Cream Review #adovia

I love products that help me feel and look beautiful.  The Adovia Eye Cream promises to make your eyes look 10 years younger. They even guarantee the product !!

Since I had a sunburn, my friend and co-reviewer, Karina, offered to test this product for me.

Karina is my best friend, a single mom with 2 beautiful little girls, and a nurse !!! She works long shifts and often says she feels like she looks tired.

She began reviewing this product right in my family room !!!

The cream was silky and had no real fragrance. This is something she liked because she's sensitive to creams and things with a lot of scent. She took small dabs and put them around her eye area and that was it.

Formulated specifically for the area around the eyes, the gel absorbs quickly into the skin for deep hydration. She said it didn't feel greasy or oily.

 The Adovia Eye Cream contains Vitamin C which delivers powerful antioxidants deep into your skin cells.

You can purchase the Adovia Eye Cream on Amazon.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Looking for Fresh Food Fast? Try PDQ ! @pdqfreshfood #PDQ #FreshFoodFast #spon

Disclosure: This review is in association with the Tampa Bay Bloggers and PDQ. My family and I received a fabulous behind the scenes tour and meals in exchange for this review and promotion.

I love chicken ! Fried, grilled, baked, plain, or with sauce. I have a friend who loves PDQ, but the drive for what I thought to be a Fast Food place, wasn’t worth it in my mind.

I admit when I’m wrong

What is PDQ? Well, the acronym spelled out is; People Dedicated to Quality.
You are getting Fresh Food Fast !

My family and I were treated to a VIP Behind the Scenes experience at the new PDQ at 5706 W Waters Ave in Tampa, Florida. From the Freshness of the ingredients, to the quality,  cleanliness and the friendliness of the employees, we were truly impressed.

Adding a little Culture to my family with Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies #KefirCreations #shop

This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser.
All opinions are mine alone. #KefirCreations #cbias #shop
Since I have been exercising my body more and working on the outside, it makes total sense to make sure I'm keeping the inside healthy as well.

I recently introduced the Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies to my family. I found these great Smoothies at my local Winn Dixie in the Organic Dairy Section. We purchased Plain, Raspberry, and Peach flavors. Strawberry and Blueberry were sold out !!

 Lifeway Kefir Smoothies are naturally Gluten Free, 99% Lactose Free (which hopefully means my Lactose Intolerant BFF can enjoy these as well with little discomfort) The Kefir Smoothies also have no Artificial Sweeteners. Lifeway also only uses milk that comes from cows that are not treated with pesticides, antibiotics, or synthetic growth hormones. I like these facts and feel good that I can provide my growing boys with a healthy product
For breakfast, I added the Plain Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothie to strawberries and bananas.
This was a great addition to my bagel and has to hoard my glass because my husband and children kept drinking it.  
Adding Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies can give your body a wake up and help boost your energy and digestive health. You can add it to recipes and drink it alone.
I've decided Peach is best on it's own and I enjoy the freshness of the flavor. I'll be printing the coupon [located at the bottom of this post], and when the Blueberry becomes available, I'll add that to my fridge !
Hubby decided he was making his own smoothie as a dessert and used the plain with strawberries.
We also added strawberries to the Raspberry Smoothie this morning, since my husband ran out of his usual yogurt. Adding fresh fruit is not necessary but we like that aspect and opportunity to be able to customize this already amazing product.
