Alina Skin Care

 Enhanced Vitamin C Serum


Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid


 Green & White Tea Extracts

  • A 2-1 SERUM PLUS MOISTURIZER. Our product is really a 2-1 vitamin c serum with a moisturizer. Vitamin C can be irritating and drying to the skin, so we packed our formula with rich moisturizers to keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. Added hyaluronic acid and organic aloe deliver a powerful moisturizing benefit to the skin.
  • SOOTHE AND CALM YOUR SKIN. People who are outside a lot, or live in metro or suburban areas where pollution levels are higher, can really benefit from Alina products because of our patented Inflacin. Daily use will provide protection against the constant bombardment of irritation to your skin.
  • AMAZING FEEL. Upon initial application, you'll notice the difference right away with Alina. A soft, silky feel that penetrates quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft and alive.
  • ANTIOXIDANTS. Our proprietary blend of green and white tea extracts is loaded with antioxidants to counter free radicals and reduce oxidative stress to your skin. FOR ALL SKIN TYPES.
  • A BETTER VITAMIN C. Some forms of vitamin c require higher concentration levels in order to be effective because they are inherently less stable and don't penetrate the skin as well as other forms. Unfortunately, products that contain higher concentration levels of vitamin C (sodium ascorbyl phosphate is an example) can also increase the risk of skin irritation. Alina Vitamin C Serum uses a premium vitamin c ester which has been clinically proven to be gentler on the skin while delivering superior results over traditional ascorbic acid and phosphate based vitamin c.

Active Ingredients: Vitamin C Ester, Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Glycerin, Green Tea Extract, White Tea Extract. FORMULATED WITHOUT: Parabens, Pthalates, and Sulfates. No Animal Testing. Made in USA

Apply morning and night to face and neck before application of a moisturizer. Moisturizer can be applied immediately after you apply Alina Vitamin C Serum. NOTE: People with dry or sensitive skin that have never used a Vitamin C skin care product may experience a slight stinging sensation during the first few applications. This is a normal and typically goes away within a few seconds. Should you experience redness, swelling or discomfort after using the product, please discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.  

Product Description

Three key competitive advantages of Alina Skin Care We are a science-driven company that believes damage and premature aging of skin is primarily caused by three key issues: dehydration, inflammation, and collagen and elastin breakdown. All of our products are specially formulated to directly bring relief and support to these three key areas of skin damage. We have two patented ingredients unique to our products and our Alina Proprietary Antioxidant Blend that give us a scientific and clinically proven advantage over other anti-aging skincare brands.
Inflacin® is a patented, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory that has been clinically proven to calm irritated skin. Keeping your skin calm and less irritated on a daily basis is critical to maintaining healthy looking, vibrant skin. Alina Skin Care truly delivers innovation and superior skin care products through the use of proprietary ingredients like Inflacin®.
We utilize a proprietary patented and clinically proven technology called Qsomes®. Qsomes® is an organic fatty acid based technology that improves the penetration of ingredients into the skin. Many skincare ingredients have a large molecular weight that prevents them from penetrating deep into the skin compromising effectiveness. Qsomes® enable us to deliver a higher percentage of active ingredients deeper into the skin than other brands, thus creating a more effective product. It's simple, the more active ingredients you can get to penetrate deep into the skin the greater results you will see.
Alina Proprietary Antioxidant Blend
All Alina Skin Care products contain our proprietary Alina Antioxidant Blend of green and white tea extracts in addition to Vitamin E and Aloe to help protect your skin against oxidative stress and free radicals.

As we get older, our skin has a tendency to lose it's elasticity and starts to get those little wrinkles.  It also loses it's moisture.
The Vitamin C Serum doesn't have a heavy feeling as some lotions and creams do.  It doesn't leave that sticky feeling either.  The serum has a wonderful, clean smell.  It has just a hint of Citrus but not overwhelming.   Another wonderful thing about this particular serum  is the price.  Most Serums are in little bottles with a bit price tag on them.   Not  Alina,  The bottle is a good size with a price to match. The serum doesn't irritate my face.  My face is very sensitive and gets irritated easily.   The Alina Serum is very gentle and after putting it on it feels so soothing. I also have a tendency for break outs on my face.  This serum helps to clear it up and keep it clear. A nice thing about this product is it isn't tested on animals. I would recommend this product to anyone.  It has so many great plus factors.

I was given a complimentary sample of ALINA SKIN CARE ENHANCED VITAMIN C SERUM from Alina Skin Care, Inc for my view of the product.

Mr. DeMayo has done it again.  Another book that will draw the reader into the book so fast and entirely that you don't want to put it down.  This book was different from the other books of Mr. DeMayo.  This wasn't a personal journey but a journey of Everett Ruess. Mr. DeMayo writes of the travels and makes the reader feel that he is right along side going through every part of the journey. The author described everything with such detail that you could almost feel, smell, touch and know the characters as though they were your friends. It was almost as though the reader was taking the journey. An amazing journey of Everett Ruess that makes you want to know more of this man and  his life. This book inspired me to think of a more simple life with a new respect on nature.   Being so young as Everett Ruess has such a mature look at society and way it can take the life right out of you.  Mr. DeMayo  gives us both the country's beauty in a very simple and easy form.   The author makes you want to grab your knapsack and go on a journey to the wondrous beauty of the southwest in a fashion such as Mr. Ruess. A wonderful book of a young man with unadulterated eyes who stood up to live life on his terms and  no one elses.Even though this book is about Everett Ruess' journey which is different than Mr. DeMayo's other books, it's a new twist on life and the journey of a person trying to live his own life in his own way.  I would recommend this book along with Mr. DeMayo's other books.  You won't be sorry.

Product Description (from Amazon)


High concentration means fewer pills per day. Each capsule of Eklund Essential Omega contains 800 mg. of Omega 3 Fatty Acids, including 430 mg. of EPA and 290 mg. of DHA, which means more Omega 3 benefits with fewer pills.

Clinical studies indicate that Triglyceride Form fish oil is absorbed up to 70% better than ordinary "ethyl-ester" fish oils. This was confirmed in a landmark 2010 study by Dr. Jorn Dyerberg, who many consider to be the "father" of Omega 3 Nutrition.

Research indicates that Triglyceride Form fish oil is better tolerated and more easily digested than cheaper "ethyl-ester" fish oil. Eklund customers rarely encounter the bloating, belching, and fishy reflux that is a common side effect of cheaper brands.

Triple Molecular Distillation and rigorous testing by respected third party labs mean you can be confident our fish oil surpasses all international standards for purity.

Eklund Essential Omega provides 430 mg. of EPA and 290 mg. of DHA in every capsule, making it an ideal choice for Heart, Triglycerides, Inflammation, and Mood Support, in addition to Seniority, Cognition, and Eye Health.

Eklund tests each and every batch for levels of oxidation, which means our customers never encounter rancid or spoiled fish oil.

We guarantee every single bottle. If you're not completely satisfied with your purchase, we'll issue a full refund.

Omega 3 has 800 mg in each capsule. The Triglyceride Form of fish oil increases faster with the Triglyceride form and there is also quicker absorption too.   That gives you more capsules for your dollar.  There is a debate of whether fish oil help reduce the signs of aging confused with the wrinkle fighting and reduction of bags below the eyes.  Made from Triglyceride form of fish oil is absorbed 70% better than ethyl-ester oil fish.  Eklund Essential Omega provide an ideal choice for Heart, Triglycerides, Inflammation and Mood Support, in addition to Seniority, Cognition, and Eye Health.  Each and every batch of the Triglyceride Form of fish oil is tested for levels of oxidation, therefore you never get that rancid or spoiled fish oil  Every bottle is guaranteed.  If not happy,  a full refund will be issued.

THICK AS THIEVES by Susan K. Marlow



An Andrea Carter Book
Circle C Milestones
Book One
Susan K. Marlow
 Thick as Thieves (Circle C Milestones)

 Girls will love Andrea's new adventures in Circle C Milestones, the continuation of Susan K. Marlow's two popular Circle C series

It's no secret that Andrea Carter would rather ride her beloved palomino, Taffy, than do anything else. Now Taffy's having her first foal, and Andi can't wait to train it to become as good a companion as its mother. The only distraction from those delightful plans is the fear that something may go wrong. When her foaling fears are realized, Andi is grateful for her brother Chad's intervention. It looks like smooth sailing from now on!

Unfortunately, life as a teenager might not be all fun and games after all. There's a new girl at school assigned to sit beside Andi--but Macy Walker is nothing like the other girls. She's homeless and ill-bred, and her mistakes do more than make Andi uncomfortable; they put her life in danger. Meanwhile, cattle rustlers have suddenly descended on the Valley and the Circle C ranch is a target. These outlaws mean business--and their business is theft.

When the thieves change from stealing cattle to stealing horses, it means heartbreaking loss for Andi. Her unpleasant classmate Macy may hold the key to getting Taffy's foal back. Can Andi trust Macy to do the right thing? Does she have a choice?

Picking up the story line of Andrea Carter and the Price of Truth, Thick as Thieves sees Andi growing up just in time for her loyal readers to grow alongside her. The Circle C Milestones series will follow Andi from age 14 to 17, as she begins to tackle the more serious issues facing an older audience and--eventually--discovers love.

Paperback, 176 pages
Expected publication: February 27th 2015 by Kregel Publications

Susan K. Marlow is always on the lookout for a new story, whether she's writing books, teaching writing workshops or sharing what she's learned a s a homeschooling mom.  The author of the Circle C Adventures and Circle C Beginning, Susan enjoys relaxing on her fourteen acre homestead in the great state of Washington.  

 To start with the cover is lovely.Andrea Carter who is 14 years old loved to ride her palomino, Taffy and not do anything else.  In 1882, Circle C ranch was a busy place.  There was school and chores to be done.   Taffy is getting ready for her first foaling.  It almost ends up terrible when the waited event arrived.  Andi doesn't have much time when she returns to school.  Didn't leave much tie for foal training.  On top of that there is a new problem for Andi.  She now has a new seatmate, Macy.  The girl is far from nice.  She is crude and has a cruel isle to her.  All she does is put storm clouds in Andi's life.  Another thing to add to the storm clouds is the cattle rustlers have come to town.  The colts were stolen by the cattle rustler and Andi is hoping she can trust the crude seatmate. The author wrote a book full of adventure and has some lessons to be learned.  One lesson was, don't judge a person by appearances.  This was an exciting journey with Andi and Macy and learning that the outside looks aren't as important as what's inside.  Will Andi and Macy get the precious colts back?  Or will the cattle rustlers win?

Does her heart belong to another?

Product Details

I'm not usually into epic fantasy books, but this one kept me reading from the first page to the last. The author, Mr. Hausker, wrote a wonderful book. The plot and the characters fit well with each other.  There were a few very small errors but that didn't affect the book at all.
The character, Damon was always low on self esteem.  Unusually, it made him the person he was meant to be.  He learned to wonder why he did the things he did and the people around him that he thought he knew.  The low self esteem helped him grow as the character in the book. At the beginning I didn't care much for Damon.  He didn't have any self worth or self confidence but as the story went on and he grew I started to like him more and more as a character in the book. The author did a wonderful job with the relationship and how they grew and changed as the reader continues. The author took the side where the characters didn't get everything they wanted.  If the book had been written where they did get what they wanted, the book wouldn't have been nearly as good. I think I'm going to have to add more epic fantasy books to my reading list.  The author wrote a very good book with well developed characters, plot and a surprise ending that makes the reader want to read more.  That's just what I'm going to do.

I was given a complimentary copy of KRAGAN from the author, Dennis K. Hausker for my view of the book.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
