Petunia Skincare 1.0mm Derma Roller + Eye Serum + Anti-aging Serum Review

 *FTC: I have received these products free for review purposes. I was not paid for this review. All opinions are my own*

"Petunia Skincare we are the melding of science and nature"


"At Petunia Skincare, our goal is to provide superior products that work and show results through using only the best ingredients around the world and some even grown locally. We believe aging can be prevented at any age and (a) healthy skincare routine should adapted.

We are honest to ourselves and our customers. We use real life science and testing to determine what works best for our skin and what doesn’t. The last thing we’d ever be interested about is cashing in on what the current hype is. Which is why we will always list all of our ingredients. We never use parabens, alcohol, and oil in our products.
We use only safe natural ingredients or synthetic ingredients that are otherwise impossible to extract, but nevertheless are safer and more reliable than those marketed as being ‘natural’. For example, we don’t like to use animals in our products, so we prefer to use hyaluronic acid purified from fermented bacteria rather than made from rooster combs for instance." -Petunia Skincare Website

1.0 Derma Roller Price: $18.77
 "PREMIUM Derma Roller - 1.0 mm 540 Needles High Quality Surgical Stainless Steel Microneedle Roller for Face and Body - Micro Needle Roller for Face, Eyes, Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Blackheads, Acne Scars, Enlarged Pores, Cellulite and Stretch Mark Removal - Skin Care Treatment for Pigmentation, Hair Loss, and Scalp (Misc.)"
 I have to admit I was a little intimidated by the looks of the Derma Roller. I'm happy to report that this product is painless, and really does help product sink into skin as well as stimulate collagen production. I have noticed a great improvement in the size of my pores. Product instructions state that you may experience redness after using the first few times. I experienced very little redness and have since only noticed redness for a few minutes after using. Will purchase again.

 Revitalize Eye Serum -Price: $26.77
 "Anti-Aging and Firming Treatment Helps Diminish Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Crows Feet and Offers Tightening and Lifting of the Skin - Reduces Dark Circles, Bags, Tired, Puffy, and Swollen Eyes - Contains Vitamin C, Natural Peptide Complex, Matrixyl 3000 and Hyaluronic Acid (Misc.)"
  I like this product, while I have found that it does not diminish my dark circles it does a very good job of tightening the skin. You can feel it tightening the skin almost immediately. I have noticed a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles as well as puffiness. Definitely my favorite Petunia product so far.

Anti Aging Hyaluronic Acid Serum for Dry Dull Skin - Price $24.77
 "Moisturizing Anti-Wrinkle Formula Helps Repair & Prevent Wrinkles, Fine Lines, Crows Feet, Dehydrated and Uneven Skin Tone Complexion - Hydrate Your Face with Antioxidants HA + Vitamin C + Ferulic Acid - Hydrating Treatment Offers Plumping, Firming, and Brightening for Aging Skin (Misc.)"
  Prior to using Petunia Skincare's Hyaluronic Acid serum I had zero experience with hyaluronic acid and was quite nervous that this might dry out or burn my skin. This product did neither. I have such soft skin now. I did experience a mini breakout at the beginning of using this product but this is fairly common with me as I have sensitive skin. Have noticed a great improvement in the look and feel of my skin. I find this product to feel a little sticky though, which took some time for me to get used to.

Interested in purchasing Petunia Skincare for yourself? You can purchase them here on their Amazon Storefront.

Keep Momming

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Shire. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating. 

Raising a child at any age is challenging, and when it comes to mothers and daughters, the dynamic can be even more complex. What some may dismiss as “typical tween girl behavior” can sometimes be symptoms of something more serious. Research suggests that girls are more likely than boys to report having mostly inattentive Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms. Since inattentive symptoms can be less noticeable than hyperactive and impulsive symptoms, it is important that moms know what to look for.
That’s why I’m pleased to be joining Shire, CHADD and Holly Robinson Peete to announce the launch of keep momming, a new public service initiative geared towards the moms of tween girls to raise awareness of ADHD.
The campaign is anchored within a new digital hub,, where you’ll find tips, tools and other go-to resources for moms, including a checklist to help recognize the symptoms of ADHD – inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity – and then encourages moms to talk to their daughter’s doctor. The keep momming initiative can help moms learn about ADHD and provide ideas on how to spark a conversation and stay connected with their tween.

Minnie Mouse Party Supplies from

*Product sent for review*
Planning parties can be stressful, so why not let Wholesale Party Supplies make it easier. It’s a one stop shop with everything you need to plan a successful party. Whether it be for a birthday, wedding, graduation or shower, no matter the age Wholesale Party Supplies has got you covered with plenty of stylish designs and character themes to choose from.  

 I picked out the Sweet, Stylish Minnie Mouse Deluxe Kit.  This kit serves 8 and has everything  you need for just $14.99. The kit shipped and arrived very quickly my UPS. All items seem to be of good quality with sturdy plates and cups. In this kit I received:

  • 8 Minnie Cake Plates
  • 8 Minnie 9oz cups
  • 16 Minnie Luncheon Napkins
  • 1 Minnie Tablecover
  •  8 Forks/Spoons/Knives
  • 1 Set of Candles
  •  2 sets of Streamers

 I found that if you need more plates, cups etc. You can purchase any extras separately. With all the other supplies being 8 or more count and all in the $1 to $2 dollar range which is super inexpensive.  They also have a lot of other Minnie Mouse decorations, as well as super cute Minnie party favor kits. I found a party favor kit with all kinds of goodies for just over $5 bucks. Score!  The party is not until the 25th but I can’t wait to see all the decorations set up. Minnie Mouse is so cute, and very on trend.   For An Exclusive Interview with Minnie Mouse check out the link.
