New Device for Anti-Aging: Sirius Infusonic Sonic Infusion Device

Sirius Infusonic Sonic Infusion Device

Sirius Infusonic Sonic Infusion Device is a sonic device designed for application of skincare products. The device claims to achieve a more effective product application than with “traditional manual application” (ie. with fingers):

"The Infusonic substitutes breakthrough sonic technology for traditional finger-tapping manual application to ensure effective and consistent infusion of skincare products. The gentle sonic action infuses product beneath the surface and enhances absorption of active ingredients, allowing your skin to experience the full benefits of serums, creams, lotions and moisturizers. With daily use, the Infusonic can promote smooth, healthy, hydrated skin. The Infusonic can be used with any serum, cream, lotion, or moisturizer."
Major claims of Infusonic’s potential benefits:
* increase performance of products
* deliver more nutrients to the skin
* achieve deeper penetration of products
* nourish skin layers with more hydration
* use with your favorite skincare products
* utilize skincare products more efficiently

What you get:
* Sonic Infusion Device
* Charging Base
* 100-240V Universal Power Supply Adapter
* User Guide

*I’ve noticed substantial improvement in the way my skin looks after three weeks of usage.

I credit the Infusonic with most of this improvement because the range of skin care products I use remained exactly the same since I started using it. I decided to try the Infusonic because I use Chanel Sublimage cream which is very expensive, and I can’t afford to waste any of it. Also, I wanted to make sure that its performance is maximized (that it really gets deep into skin layers).

I usually dab a small amount of product on the tip of the device and glide it slowly all over my face for about 5 minutes until there is absolutely no product left on the tip. It’s definitely better and more effective than applying product with fingers, and I am sure that no product is wasted as when it just absorbs into fingers or just sits there at the surface. Very useful and handy product which I highly recommend.*

REVIEW: Best all-around eye shadow for over 40 ageless eyes (beats out it Cosmetics, MAC, Tarte)

OK, I plopped down a handful of money for a new (for me) brand of eye shadow. I saw it touted on one of the shopping channels and while at ULTA the other day, I decided to splurge. The last thing I need is more eye shadow, but that's another story...

I love it Cosmetics shadows. They are sheer, buildable and not talc-y. They lay very nicely, but the range of colors is limited. I love MAC (who doesn't) but my new find is even better (in my opinion). I LOVE Bobbi Brown shadows. They are the hands-down best, but pricey and cannot be found everywhere (like ULTA). So...what is my new find?

This matte palette is perfect for over 40 eyes--no shimmer, no talc, no crepiness!
Too Faced. I know, I know, not a new brand, but although I have never really worked with it before, I'm am impressed. The shadow palette I got was neutrals all in matte, which are hard to find. They lay so nicely! Over a primer, they are divine! They last and last, too.

The palette had several shades and they are usable. They are very pigmented so I'm sure they'll last a long time. I'm thrilled.

Unfortunately, a TARTE palette I bought awhile ago didn't impress me. Is this stuff really powdery or is it me? Not highly pigmented, either. Too bad as I had high hopes.

As a side note, I got a sample of their eye shadow primer, which is perfectly fine. A solid 8 out of 10. I do use Laura Geller primer (love it--very light texture) and also a Paula Dorf primer which is heavy. I use the Dorf only when I really spend time on my eyes (a night out, for example). For an everyday primer, the Geller is my top choice!

Non-Surgical Methods to Increase Breast Size

Non-Surgical Methods to Increase Breast Size

Desperately, some women having flat chest fearlessly indulge themselves in procedures that promise a striking increase in breast volume. Others would not compromise their health and rather take advantage of the affordable yet less bothersome methods to increase breastsize without surgery.

Aside from diet and workouts, a number of products that promise high success rates in upsizing breasts are rampant in the market. Moreover, they are amongst the top items of some women in their bucket list nowadays.

The innovations initiated by cosmetic firms focus on topical products and simple partially invasive procedures that will increase bust size without surgery yet with satisfying results awfully close to those crafted out of the surgeon’s scalpel and stitches. Examples of these are gels, creams, and fillers. Gels, according to claims of their manufacturers contain resins that increase adipocytes and fat stores in breasts; and phytosterol from herbal roots and soy crops that intensify the breast firmness and help produce an age- defying substance called collagen.

Meanwhile, creams like Naturaful do not only enlarge breasts, they also improve the tone and overall appearance of the breasts. They are fortified with enzymes, oils and essences that moisturize the skin and support skin renewal. It is important to take note that creams should not be applied as is; but to make them work more effectively, they have to be instituted with proper massage.

With this, absorption of bust boosting ingredients is hastened by increased blood circulation, leaving the underlying skin healthy and the breasts tighter. Circular massage using warm hands with further nipple stimulation also prompt the secretion of prolactin, a hormone responsible for bigger breasts of lactating mothers.

Another alternative means to increase bust size without surgery is through injection of fillers. Some are made from synthetic substances while some are naturally occurring in the human body such as the client’s own plasma. The breast enhancing effects of this method last for months.

To date, the most widely used, safe and affordable way that is popular even to transvestites are pills whose major components are plant estrogens that do the same job carried out by human estrogens. More often than not, results are tangible after few months of intake; although, some women show noticeable improvements in two weeks while others are left waiting longer for changes.

Employing the principle of stimulating growth of breast tissues through pressure or tension, pumps were introduced which simply work like vacuum suckers that stretch the breasts’ skin, thereby forcing the cells to swell and reproduce later on. Use this every day for at least two months and the result will be appreciated.


Available through licensed estheticians only!

The fact that the breasts are made solely of fats justifies the injection of own fat cells in your breasts for augmentation. The infusion of fats happen right after the extracted samples pass through a cleansing and purifying methods with the use of centrifuge.

In choosing the right product or method to increase bust size without surgery, it is a wise move to make a research about the products marketed. Read the testimonials of those who have already benefitted as well as the product reviews.

To enhance the effects of these breakthroughs, you can visually accentuate your busts by means of contouring with the use of makeup; using push up bras; standing with correct posture; and possessing the right amount of confidence.
