What Makes Us Different from Other Review Sites?

Rachel Vrabel of Women's Blog TalkHi, I’m Rachel. I started Women’s Blog Talk in 2011 as a hobby and it’s become my labor of love!

With an overwhelming number of anti-aging and health products on the market today, my goal is to help remove some of the guesswork when trying to choose products to help you look and feel your best!

What’s different about this site is that I personally test many of the products that I review, along with some help from a team of women who are also contributing authors and product reviewers.

I personally use all of my top recommended products, so I know they are fabulous! For the products that we review which we don’t try personally, we research them diligently to bring you the facts!

You can learn more about me here including my skin care routine, and how I stay healthy and fit in my 40’s.

A few of our top picks!

Kollagen Intensiv – Collagen renewal for dry, aging skin

I am in my 40’s now, and the loss of collagen, the loss of “plumpness,” and fine lines and wrinkles are the changes I’ve noticed the most in my skin, so putting the collagen back in has become a priority!

Collagen loss is what causes wrinkles – it’s a depressing fact that by age 30, our ability to produce collagen drops by 50%!

Kollagen Intensiv has been one of my go-to anti-aging treatments and top creams and for the past 4 years.

Kollagen Intensiv is hydrating, cuts redness, plumps wrinkles, diminishes crows-feet and puffiness, and gives me results to stay youthful-looking! 

A great combo is using using Skinception’s AHA Toner with Kollagen Intensiv.

The AHA Toner (alpha-hydroxy) rapidly increases cell turnover, smooths the skin, and builds collagen to reduce wrinkle depth.Skinception AHA Toner

Pairing the collagen building toner with a collagen building moisturizer provides awesome results, and it doesn’t take long to see an improvement.

Why is Retinol great for reducing wrinkles?

We’ve been hearing a lot about retinol and its beneficial effects on our skin, and our top recommended cream, Kollagen Intensiv, has it.

Retinol has become a hot commodity in skin care ingredients for anti-aging companies, claiming to be a miracle cure for all those inevitable wrinkles and signs of aging.

Pruvit Keto//OS – a Miracle Supplement?

Keto os review and resultsIt’s been harder to lose weight in my 40’s (mainly due to hormonal changes), however Keto OS is a supplement that has made it easy plus has many anti-aging and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Keto-OS is an exogenous ketones powder you mix with water and drink once or twice daily that puts your body into ketosis within 30 minutes which is when you burn fat for fuel instead of glucose.

It comes in a variety of delicious flavors and is easy to drink. I’ve been drinking the Maui Punch and Raspberry Lemonade flavor for 9 months now and feel amazing (and I lost 17 lbs my first 3 months).

It gives me energy, focus, motivation, suppresses my appetite, lifts my mood, fights inflammation, and keeps my skin clear with less redness. It even helps me sleep!

Drinking Keto has also cured my blepharitis which is rosacea of the eyes (redness and inflammation).keto raspberry lemonade samples

My whole family is getting healthy on ketones. My sister lost 11 lbs in 3 weeks, my mom is down 15 and my brother lost 18 lbs in a month!

Both my mom and my brother have gone from needing blood pressure medication to normal in just over two months. The health benefits of ketones are tremendous!

The Joovv Red Light – Is Red Light Therapy a Bright Idea?

best red lightsRed light therapy has many anti-aging and health benefits since it increases collagen production, circulation, and even super charges ATP (cellular energy) upwards of 200% to repair damaged cells.

Collagen loss is what causes wrinkles, sagging skin, loose jowels, crepey skin, you name it – collagen loss is what causes the skin to lose its youthful appearance.

Well, I got one a couple months ago and hung it on the back of my office door, and it’s awesome! I’m going to give you all the details and tell you about my personal experience.

And the Joovv Red Light isn’t just any red light. It’s a full body sized LED red light that you can place anywhere in your home to treat your entire body! Sounds crazy, right?

It’s even helped my shoulder pain since it repairs damaged tissue and fights inflammation.

Beautycounter – Hello Safe Skin Care!

Click Here for My Beautycounter Online Store You’ll see my picture come up, click “start shopping” to browse around!

Beauty Counter Skin care reviewsI’ve been searching for a safe, natural skin care line that I could represent that I would feel good about not only using, but recommending to others.

When I found Beautycounter, it fit the bill ~ effective products, and no bad chemicals!

Being the skin care junkie that I am, I ordered just about one of everything, and all summer long I’ve been indulging in all things Beautycounter!

Why do I love Beautycounter? For one they have a “Never List” of 1,500 questionable or unsafe chemicals that they’ll never use in their products.

Secondly, I LOVE every single product that I’ve tried! The skin care is amazing and choc-full of plant based ingredients to nourish and feed your skin and it does a great job of minimizing wrinkles and giving me an even skin tone!

With that said, here are a couple of my favorite Beautycounter products!

Beautycounter Cleansing Balm

Beauty Counter top sellersSpa night, every night!  The Beautycounter Cleansing Balm is a yummy smelling, oil-based cleanser that MELTS away all the impurities and makeup from your face.

It’s one of their best sellers and now I know why – it’s fabulous and it’s like having 6 products in 1!

This is a product that leaves your skin soft, supple and smooth and never stripping your skin of its essential moisture.

You can leave it on as a mask overnight for more intense hydration (or for 10-30 minutes), use it as a lip mask, or on elbows and knees for dry spots.

Sometimes I use a little as a moisturizer before bed and wake up with soft, plump skin! And I especially love how it leaves my neck and décolleté – those two spots are definitely my problem areas!

The Cleansing Balm is made from natural flower oils like chamomile and rose, and from seed oils like cranberry, raspberry, apricot and mango. It smells amazing and is packed with Vitamin C!

Beautycounter Countermatch Adaptive Moisture Lotion

Vibrant. Radiant. Refreshed. Skin at its peak performance! *AND BACK IN STOCK!*

Beautycounter Countermatch reviewsBeautycounter’s Countermatch lotion is lightweight and helps the skin adapt to varying conditions by adjusting hydration and oxygen levels as you need it. 

This is a lotion that I can use either am or pm for a smooth look that remains consistent throughout the day and night.

The Countermatch Lotion has a silky, smooth feel and glides over the skin effortlessly.

It doesn’t turn “greasy” when you get into a little humidity, and it keeps my skin hydrated in my freezing office!

With breakthrough plant based Bio-Mimic technology, it has the ability to exactly match the skin’s structure to give it exactly what it needs, when it needs it.

The Countermatch lotion is high in vitamins E, A, C and D and is packed with anti-oxidants and nourishing ingredients. It even contains a little salicylic acid which is great for deeper absorption and cell turnover!

This is a great choice for an all around anti-aging treatment to smooth wrinkles and help the skin retain moisture.

What Happened to Lifecell? Read my Lifecell Review

Lifecell TextureIf you’ve followed my blog for the past 5 years, you may know that I love Lifecell for its immediate wrinkle smoothing results – nothing works quite like it! It was one of my top creams and personal faves for many years.

My sister is a professional makeup artist and she loves using Lifecell on brides! Since it doubles as a wrinkle filler, it creates a flawless, smooth finish and works well for all skin types.

While I stand behind the South Beach Skincare line, many people confuse the Lifecell 30-day trial with the 14-day celebrity free trial scams that I warn about. These scams have unfortunately tarnished the reputation of a quality trial product.

However, if you are interested in trying Lifecell, read my Lifecell review first, and you will be educated to understand exactly how the Lifecell trial works, so there are no surprises!

Meaningful Beauty Eye Enhancing Serum & Lifting Eye Crème

Meaningful Beauty Eye Treatments

Meaningful Beauty Eye Treatments

Meaningful Beauty’s Eye Enhancing Serum & Lifting Eye Crème is a powerful duo and one of my faves because it’s so effective and doesn’t bother my sensitive eyes.

They contain powerful peptides and firming agents and is fragrance free.

Together they hydrate, reduce puffiness and dark circles, diminish under eye bags, deep set wrinkles, fine lines and crows feet.

What I love about these products is how quickly and gently they hydrate to get rid of my crepy eyelid skin, making my eyes look younger and more perky.

I’ve had remarkable results using these products and women rave about Cindy Crawford’s skin care! I actually love the whole line and you can read my review of Meaningful Beauty here.
