Fountain of Truth Eco-luxe products

The magic happens with Fountain of Truth’s silky, weightless eyecream that helps fight visible signs of aging around the eyes. This Bright-Eyes Complex is rich in probiotic-derived ingredients, green tea, and pomegranate extracts; it helps to smooth away the look of fine lines and wrinkles, while caffeine extract works to diminish the appearance of dark circles and under-eye puffiness. Its unique metal, double ball applicator feels cool on contact and stimulates microcirculation while providing targeted application of the cream to enhance the formula’s benefits. Since we began using it about a week ago, we’ve noticed a big difference is the puffiness under our eyes; a side effect when ou’re up all night writing. Unlike our previous eyecreams, we found no need to pop this in the fridge to get the cool feeling.

Both the Magic Wand Sculpting Eye Roller and Skin Nutrition Booster Kit are available now at www.fountainoftruthbeauty.com and Ulta Stores.

Motorola moto e6 Smartphone

Big Screen, Big Battery: Motorola Unveils NEW moto e6 Smartphone

A few months ago, Motorola launched a new release in their Z Series smartphones; a few days ago, they announced the 6th generation of its moto e family. What makes the moto e6 smartphone stand out from other value-tier smartphones? It’s high quality, up-to-date features that you can count on such as a maximum display, long-lasting battery, and a sharp camera.

Motorola moto e6 Smartphone
The new moto e6 was designed with improved essentials in mind. It boasts a 5.5” Max Vision display, more than a day of battery life, and a 13MP camera with premium features. It’s everything you need for all-day fun at a very budget-friendly price. Check out all of the moto e6’s features below:

  • Its Max Vision HD+ display gives you maximum viewing thanks to an 18:9 aspect ratio, so you scroll less and enjoy more. You’ll love the fact that you can see so much and still hold the phone comfortably in one hand.
  • Easily listen to music on your headphones using the dedicated headphone jack. A lightweight, unibody, water-repellent design keeps your phone protected inside and out.
  • Enjoy more than a day of power with a 3000 mAh removable battery. Watch 5 full-length movies back to back, play games nonstop for 8+ hours, or listen to songs offline for 109 hours straight.
  • The moto e6 is 50% faster than the moto e5. It boasts a lag-free, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon performance that runs smoothly, even when multitasking. Need more room for apps? Add up to 256 GB of storage to the moto e6 to move photos, songs, and movies to a dedicated external microSD card slot.
  • A great improvement from last year’s moto e5 is its fast-focusing, sharp 13 MP rear camera. It ensures you won’t miss the moments that move quickly. Thanks to a big 1.12um pixels along with a large f/2.0 aperture, your camera has improved performance in lowlight scenarios. When you have a smaller aperture and bigger pixel, your camera performs better. Get the most out of scenes like fireworks, campfires, starry nights, or outdoor nighttime concerts.
  • For the first time ever, you can add premium touches to your photos with moto e6’s Spot Color and Portrait Mode. Select a single color to keep and turn the rest of the photo black & white for a distinctive look using Spot Color mode. In Portrait Mode, use the front or rear camera to enhance a subject with a beautiful blur effect in the background. You can even use portrait mode with your 5MP selfie camera.
  • The moto e6 has the clean Android Pie software you expect from Motorola, allowing you to avoid bloatware and unwanted apps. Plus, it has more exclusive Moto Experiences than ever before on a moto e including Fast Flashlight; turning the flashlight on with a simple chop-chop motion; and Screenshot Editor, letting you share, write and draw on your screenshots immediately. These new experiences also include Media Controls and One Button Nav, previously only available on higher-tier devices.

Motorola moto e6 Smartphone

The new moto e6 will be available now in the US through Verizon. T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, Boost Mobile, U.S. Cellular, Consumer Cellular, Xfinity Mobile, and universally unlocked are available on www.Amazon.com, Best Buy, B&H Photo, and Walmart.

Urban Skin Rx Skin Care Products

Urban Skin Rx: Skincare From The Melanin Skin Experts

Everyone has heard the famous line “Black don’t crack”; while it’s true that the melanin in African American skin helps in looking younger, black skin still needs nurturing. Black may not crack but it does bruise. While we may look younger, black men and women can still be plagued with skin issues. These include acne, enlarged pores, hyperpigmentation and other common concerns seen in darker skin tones. Thankfully, there is a solution. Urban Skin Rx is a clinical skincare line founded by medical aesthetician Rachel Roff. It is a skincare range of scientifically researched corrective skincare products for all skin tones and colors.

Urban Skin Rx Skin Care Products

We are currently trying out three skincare products from Urban Skin Rx – Combination Skin Cleansing Bar, Clear & Even Tone Clarifying Glycolic Pads, and the Even Tone Super Glow Serum. Keep on reading for more information on these products and our take on them:

Urban Skin Rx Skin Care Products

Combination Skin Cleansing Bar, $24.00 – the Urban Skin Rx Cleansing Bars are also known as “treatment bars in a jar” because that’s exactly what they are. The 3-in-1 Combination Skin Cleansing Bar is a smoothing, hydrating cleansing treatment. It improves the appearance of rough skin, aging skin and eczema-prone skin. It works as a daily cleanser, mask, and exfoliator thanks to its rich, thick lather and exfoliating sponge.

Urban Skin Rx Skin Care Products

You don’t need much of the solid brown cleansing bar to get a deep clean, and it boasts a light fennel scent. It left our skin looking brighter and left it felt clean, but not tight or dry. We love a multitasking beauty product and this Urban Skin Rx cleanser is an effective time-saver.

Urban Skin Rx Skin Care Products

Clear & Even Tone Clarifying Glycolic Pads, $32.00- thanks to a powerful combination of Glycolic acid, Lactic acid, and Salicylic acid, the Urban Skin Rx Clear & Even Tone Clarifying Glycolic Pads effectively exfoliates dead skin cells, promotes even-looking skin tone, removes excess oil, and leaves behind a skin cleansing formula. It will take time to see the full benefits of using the pads but personal experience tells us that Glycolic acid smooths the appearance of skin. You’ll experience a slight initial tingling, which disappears just as quickly.

Urban Skin Rx Skin Care Products

Even Tone Super Glow Serum, $26.00 – last but not least is the Urban Skin Rx Even Tone Super Glow Serum; a brightening and anti-aging antioxidant powerhouse. It is the perfect blend of ingredients which work together to improve the appearance of dark spots, sun damage and the effects of aging. It has an earthy scent to it, a faint citrus scent, but more eathy, a lot like aged orange rinds. Upon first application, it can feel a bit sticky but it absorbs fairly quickly into the skin. As sufferers of uneven skin tones, we can’t wait to be free from the issues that plague our darker skin.

Our fellow melanin-gifted, if you are looking for effective skincare for your skin tone needs, try Urban Skin Rx.

Logic.Ink Day Tattoo

LogicInk UV Day Tattoo: Know When You’ve Had Enough Sun Exposure

You don’t need to step outside to realize we are experiencing an incredible heatwave. So dangerous that a heat index warning has been issued, outdoor events have been canceled and people are encouraged to stay indoors until it’s over. While days like this are few and we heed the warnings, on a typical day, you may not realize just how much sun exposure you’re getting. Did you know there are an estimated 4.3 million cases of BCC (Basal Cell Carcinoma) diagnosed in the U.S. each year and there’s no sign of that slowing down? It’s way past the time we need to know about the harmful effects of UV overexposure. Here’s a question to yourselves, how do you know when you’ve had enough sun exposure for the day? With the LogicInk UV day tattoo, you can. It’s the future of health wearables.

Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo

LogicInk UV is designed to measure the cumulative effect of one day in the sun. The outer circle and bar turn fully pink when you reach the daily UV limit for sensitive skin; this is based on data from the World Health Organization. The inner circle and dot show the current UV exposure in real-time. In the above photo, you will see a pink spot; this is the measurement of sun exposure I had prior to applying the LogicInk. I had not yet gone back into the sun while wearing it. As you can see, it’s already letting me know how much sun exposure I’ve had. You’ll also notice the inner circle has no color, indicating I’m not currently exposed to the sun as I was indoors.

Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo Logic.Ink UV Day Tattoo

Upon venturing outside, you’ll notice the inner circle has now turned pink, showing my real-time, full exposure to the sun. As previously stated, the LogicInk UV day tattoo signals when you’ve had enough sun for the day. Applied to your skin like a temporary tattoo, the waterproof adhesive is gentle on the skin, yet resilient enough to last in the ocean or pool. LogicInk UV is even compatible with sunscreen; just apply the LogicInk UV on clean, dry skin, then apply sunscreen over your skin and on LogicInk.  The sunscreen is designed to expire faster from LogicInk’s surface than it does on your skin. This is a helpful early warning to reapply sunscreen or get some shade.

While you don’t need a smartphone to see your UV exposure status, there is an optional mobile app that lets you scan your LogicInk “tattoo” to track UV exposure patterns over longer periods of time. LogicInk UV day tattoos are available in single or on subscription-based purchases. Get 10 for $39.00 as a single purchase or 15 for $29/month, and 30 for $79.00 if you subscribe.
