I had recently read a review the other day in a wonderful magazine on the best body polishes of 2016. I’ve tried multiple good and bad body polishes, and the biggest love I have for them is the way they smell, and the way my skin feels after using them. It usually takes me a while to get use to a product . I’m one that have used the same bath products for years. I read that Herbivore coconut body polish was on top of this list. I instantly went out to try buy it and review it. First of all, the smell is amazing. I’m a huge lover of the coconut smell. It reminds me of anything Caribbean, with an exotic feel. I bought it , and after a few uses, instantly fell in love. My skin felt so soft, and I loved the way the oil moisturized into my skin. It exfoliates and hydrates your skin at the same time. The smell is a mixture of coconut with rose petals. It is formulated without parabens or sulfates. The body polish is by far one of my favorites, and this would also be perfect as a gift. Don’t you love getting spa like gifts ? The packaging is super adorable too! Check this wonderful product out at Sephora.
Kiehls products have been one of my favorites for a long time. One of the reasons that I love the products so much is because they deliver results, and they deliver fast. We all know how mornings can be chaotic, having little time to pull ourselves together. Its best to try to find skincare products that do not require a lot of time or preparation, but yet deliver fantastic results. Kiehls products use the finest ingredients in all of their products including steam distilled lavender, caffeine, plenty of vitamin C, and many more fantastic herbs. Their products are specially formulated to restore and strengthen the skin, while giving the skin balance and better clarity, for younger , youthful skin.
One item that I do not like using too much in the summer is foundation. Summer is a time to give your skin breathing room, and applying an SPF with a good moisturizer is enough for me. The two products that I so deeply love is the Kiehls Microblur Skin protector, and the Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Protector. These two items are the perfect duo for the summer months.
Microblur Skin Protector
Blurring has been in the beauty world for a while now. The best thing about blurring is there is literally no pores after applying it. It is one of the best primers I’ve ever tried. It has a great silky formula that glides right onto the face. The addition of the salicyclic acid , and other amazing ingredients , gives the skin a flawless and dewy look. Once I apply this, I do not need any foundation or makeup. I do apply a great SPF everyday under my Microblur Skin corrector. This is the bomb.
Clearly Corrective Dark Circle Perfector
The clearly corrective dark circle perfector evens out skin texture , giving the under eye area a clean radiant boost, while improving fine lines. The dark circle perfector disguises bags from a night of too much wine, or maybe not getting enough sleep. It drowns the skin with hydration , and adds moisture back into the skin. The key of going make up free is to find the perfect products that work well with your skin. Every person has a different skin type. If your skin is dry, or dehydrated, then Kiehls has a perfect line of products for you! Which Kiehls products are your favorite?
I’m sure all of you know by now that simply stopping in to Target to pick up a “few” things never happens. Yes it’s that store that basically traps you in for an extended time , only to find out at checkout, that you spent way more money than you actually planned on. Well I have to tell you that one of my favorite things about Target, is not only the cute little things you can buy, but some of the amazing brands that are carried in Target.
Of course we all have our favorite items when it comes to bath time. My ultimate indulgence that I always stock up on is Jo Malone, which is honestly what I use when I’m heading out. Here are some of the best Bath buy items that I love at Target. These are perfect also if you have a daughter. My daughter loves all these because I buy them so much.
Mayfair makes some of the best bath items. This particular item is wonderful. It really makes you feel as if you are at a spa , from its delectable aroma. I love the cute bottle too! The bath salts are amazing and lasts for a long while. This is by Mayfair Soap Foundry.
Marlowe products are the bomb. This literally makes me feel like I’m in the Caribbean. It is infused with green tea extract, deep sea algae, and passion fruit. It’s smell is what gets you.
My daughter loves this stuff. This is a great body wash, and smells wonderful. It’s got an easy pump dispenser, and comes in amazing aromas. This is a must try.
You do not need to spend a fortune each time you shop for bath products. Target is wonderful about adding in amazing brands to their line of products and these are the top products that I love. This is by you are Amazing.
We all know how important it is to keep your hair healthy as you age. We see our hair getting drab , and losing elasticity as well as shine, and this can happen with age as well as being in the sun too much, or using hair products that are full of chemicals that wreak havoc on your hair.
Of course eating a healthy diet helps with keeping our hair healthy, and taking a good multi vitamin helps with it also. A great vitamin that I love is the multi vitamin by Sugar bear hair. These chewy vitamins are filled with all the great vitamins that are essential for hair health such as biotin, folic acid, and vitamin D. They have a great fruit taste, and they are vegetarian, and cruelty free.
Just popping two of these vitamins daily will make such a difference in your locks. It’s amazing the taste of these also, and the price point is wonderful at 29.99 for a 30 day supply , compared to others . The difference in your hairs elasticity is the first thing that I noticed, and also the growth. Adding a multi vitamin daily along with eating healthy food will really help keep your locks luster. Shampooing less is also essential. Shampooing everyday is not good for your hair as the chemicals strip the moisture, so shampoo with a good one, and in between use a dry shampoo to add volume. You will see a big difference. Happy locks !
We all know the look of a face is purely dependent on how the brows look. They ultimately shape your face, and sets the tone for all the rest. To me the most important part of your face is your brows, ( besides good teeth). One huge tip for keeping gorgeous brows is NEVER over pluck. I’d advise going to get them threaded, or if that’s too much, get them waxed. You NEVER want to touch the tops of the brows. The only real good purpose of a good pair of tweezers is to get the strays underneath the brow line. You shouldn’t be using them that often.
I have some great tips that I have picked up from some wonderful makeup workshops and I have utilized in my every day life. It’s so important to buy food products that are going to last and have good color. There are a multitudes of ” Browns ” out there. You could think you are getting a brown brow pencil, then once you get it home, you realize there is so much red in it. Sometimes a great thing to do is head over to a Mac store, or Sephora store and have someone try some products on you that work best with your skin tone.
– Always invest in a good pair of tweezers for those stray hairs. They pop up when you least expect it, and if your going out, you want your strays to be gone. It really opens up your eyes when you have all the strays gone.
Always invest in a good brand of brow pencil, that has a great edge to it , as well as a good color. Your brows should always be a bit darker than your hair color. One of my all time favorite brands is Anastasia Beverly Hills brows. She has amazing pallets and pencils. They are wonderful. Charlotte Tibury has great pencils as well.
Make sure to have a great brow gel to apply after the brow pencil to keep your brows shaped in place. Brow gels are a lifesaver and really adds depth to your brows.
It’s always best once the brows are done, to add just a bit of powder to the tops of them to set everything in place. Using all these tips on your brows will give you an instant eye lift without even visiting a doctor.
