Review Exuviance Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50

Qqll9sjTAKSlUVYEPab4_F20100XThis is a great product to apply under your regular facial moisturizer daily! It’s very sheer and contains SPF 50 which is really nice! I love that it applies so easily, dries quickly and leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth! It doesn’t leave behind any kind of white residue or anything like that which I really like about it! Also, another really nice point about this facial sunscreen is that it leaves your skin with a matt finish instead of that glossy shine you’d expect to see. I love the matt finish! In conclusion I can say this sunscreen is very effective because I didn’t get sunburned so much as one day that I’ve used it so I highly recommend it! If you’re interested in trying Exuviance Daily Protector SPF 50 for yourself you can find it HERE.

REVIEW HASK Monoi Coconut Oil Shampoo & Conditoner

bpVZqlTkRKu6qEAuFzep_Hask_monoi_coconut_ingredient_lineup_relfection.jpgI was mailed a sample of Hask Monoi Coconut Oil Nurishing Shampoo with the matching conditioner set! I’m so excited to have been selected to review it because it’s absolutely wonderful! Just opening the bottle and smelling it and it’s so divine!  I’m in love with the scent so much I could just stand there smelling it! I’ve been using it for about 2 weeks now and it’s honestly really made a huge difference in my hair. Before my hair was unmanageable and seemed straw like even though I don’t have color treated hair. My hair type is thick, long and my color is natural and untreated. I don’t use products in my hair like mosses, hair sprays, etc. so I don’t know why my hair seemed to have a mind of its own before. First I started with the Monoi Coconut Oil Shampoo and applied their Nourishing Deep Conditioner. I left it on for 10 minutes like the directions said. The results were AMAZING! The following day I used the shampoo but this time instead of the deep conditioner I used the Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing Conditioner in place of the deep conditioner and it did a wonderful job also! It’s very light and didn’t weigh my hair down but really helped it lay straight which was exactly what I was looking for! Once my hair is dry I finish it off with a couple drops of the Monoi Coconut Oil Nourishing SHINE® Oil which I absolutely love I might add! Before I was selected to try their products I had never heard of their company. I can tell you I will defiantly be purchasing more when I run out. I feel silly saying this but I don’t know if this is a salon brand or a store brand. I read a review another reviewer posted saying they purchased theirs from Walgreen’s. If that’s true I don’t believe it because this product looks smells and preforms like a high end salon brand. Here is the link to the HASK Beauty Website CLICK HERE.

Review Beauty Widgets synthetic makeup brushes

Well, I was in the market for a full set of make-up brushes but didn’t want to spend a small fortune on them. Yet, at the same time I want to make sure I made a quality purchase. After scouring the internet and reading so many reviews it made my head spin I stumbled onto this gorgeous set of brushes by Beauty Widgets! This set comes with 10 make-up brushes and it even includes a black roll tie makeup bag to store them is so they stay nice and clean when I’m not using them! I was so excited to get them in the mail because they are truly beautiful. This is a synthetic set so they are not exactly made of horse hair or anything exotic but if that’s what you’re looking for then this isn’t the set for you and of course you’ll be paying a lot more if that’s what you want. Another thing I love about this set is that each brush is labeled so you’re not guessing what it’s for. The roll case it comes with is made of a plastic and it’s not that nice but I’m more interested in the quality of the actual brushes anyway. I highly recommend this set!

Review Of The 7e MyoLift Microcurrent Device #review #7e #myolift #antiaging


I truly love microcurrent and I’m going to tell you why! I’ve been using the 7e MyoLift Microcurrent Machine for about 8 weeks now and the results are amazing so I wanted to take the time to share my experience and post my own personal review! Being a full time Mommy it took me a while to find the time to be able to actually sit down and wright this blog review but here it is! I must confess, I was actually going to look into plastic surgery for the wrinkles that were developing around my eyes and the hooded eye lids I was beginning to develop but decided to try microcurrent first so see what kind of results I could achieve with that first. I’m honestly so excited with my results I’m going to skip the consult with the plastic surgeon! My face has more of a “toned” look to it now, my skin is much tighter and firmer! My eyebrows appear raised and my eyes have more of an open awake look. The issue with the hooded eyelids I was developing all but went away and so did the crow’s feet around my eyes! I feel I almost have the appearance of Botox without the dreaded “frozen” look! To fit the MyoLift into my schedule I use it when I’m doing my morning cardio walking on the treadmill while my baby is playing with her toys. You can also use it while your watching t.v. at night. The unit is cordless so you can just set it next to you on the couch. You do need two hands to use it though. Because the probes are so small you can easily get around your eyes and lips unlike with the NuFace where you have to purchase an expensive attachment to go along with an already pricy unit.

7e Myolift – Microcurrent Face Lift & Facial Stimulation Device

My Before:

My After:

The beauty with microcurrent is that it enables you to be able to “work out” the facial muscles. I mean, let’s face it, we all know how important it is to work out our bodies so why do we skip the facial muscles??! Well, before we never had a way to work out those muscles until now! With age the facial muscles get soft and begin to sag the same as your triceps would. Not good! In addition to working out the facial muscles and keeping your face toned microcurrent actually stimulates new collagen growth. Collagen is something else we unfortunately lose with age. By re-growing collagen it re-plumps the fine lines smoothing them out again and softens deep wrinkles! Think of collagen as the fillers people pay to have injected in their faces for cosmetic reasons but doing it this way is 100% natural!

Many professional estheticians on YouTube also highly recommend this machine, which was what helped me decide to purchase it. This is the exact same unit many estheticians use on you when you book a treatment with them.

Is it hard to use? Nope! The 7e MyoLift is very ease to do a treatment on yourself. Here is an instructional video to show you how easy it is:

This video explains more about the unit and demonstrates how it can be used in a professional setting like a salon:

Another huge plus about the 7e MyoLift is the price point and the fact that it’s a professional grade microcurrent unit! Being priced at only $269 the average house mom can actually afford it without stressing over the cost! For comparison sake, if you were to go to a doctor’s office and schedule a microcurrent apt you’d spend close to $100 on one session. Going off those kinds of numbers this unit pays for itself after just 2 treatments!!

Just what does “professional” mean any way? It means this unit is meets the requirements to be used in a professional setting (such as by a professional esthetician in a salon selling sessions/treatments) but has been determined safe for home use also. So there you have it! Now you know why I always shop for “professional grade” when I’m in the market for a beauty device.

For more information please visit the 7e Wellness website HERE. You can also find the MyoLift on Amazon HERE.

I did not get a discount or free unit in exchange for this review. I just love it so much and I’m so excited with my results I wanted to share.

Save your finger tips when using your curling iron!#review #isaprofessional #gotitfree

Why I love the ISA Heat Resistant Glove! Because I have curling irons and flat irons that I use, I was in need of this glove to save my poor fingers from burns! I’m right handed so I was using my left hand the wrap my hair around my curling iron and I was burning myself like crazy! This heat resistant glove by ISA can be used on either your right or left hand and its ultra-light weight so you can hardly even feel it when wearing it. Also, it’s nice and stretchy so one size fits all. It’s made of a material called Nomex Aramid, which is very heat resistant and also used by fire fighters. I like that I only need to wear one glove and it’s reusable saving me money. And even better its currently on sale for 50% off marked down to $10.08 from $19.99 so now is a really good time to buy! Just sayin’! CLICK HERE to order!

Review Lift Wand High Frequency Tool & Why I Love it! #liftwand

#liftwand #review

Today I’m reviewing the Lift Wand High Frequency Tool by Lift Care! I’m extremely happy with the Lift Wand and thrilled with high frequency therapy! I’ve been using it daily on the highest level for a little over 2 weeks now and my skin is already noticeably improved! My fine lines are basically gone! My skin is a lot smoother and has a silky dewy appearance to it. My face looks a lot brighter already. I had no idea a home beauty tool could do so much and it’s actually priced below $100!!

What is a High Frequency Lift Wand you ask? It’s a professional quality home beauty tool that emits an electrical frequency that stimulates the skin bringing blood flow to the surface and oxidizes the skin. With blood flow comes nutrients which stimulates your own natural collagen production.

What do you get? Included in your box are 4 different glass probs. (From left to right) the largest probe is for pore reduction on your nose, the comb attachment is to stimulate new hair growth, the round tip probe is for all over facial treatment & the smallest probe is to be used on small spots such as breakouts.

How to use the Lift Wand: It’s a 2 Part Skin Therapy System to help you look younger in 15 mins. Wash your face with your favorite fash wash then dry, next apply Argan Oil to moisturize your face. Clean the Lift Wand electrodes before each  use (for sanitary reasons) then plug the electrode into the Lift Wand  base (while it’s still turned off of course). Next turn the Lift Wand on low power then apply the probe to your face in a circular motion massaging the ski. You can apply it to problem areas a bit longer to focus on those areas. Don’t wash your face, instead let the Argan oil sit for at least 30-45mins before washing off.

I ordered this because I’m in my late 30’s (38 to be exact) and I’m just now starting to notice changes in my face from age. Mostly around my eye. I stated to look into something other than Botox because I’m still breastfeeding my 10 month old. I’m so happy I found this tool that I think I’ll skip Botox all together even once I’m finished nursing my baby! Plus, this cost much much less!

My wand was mailed to me as a sample so I could try it for myself and like I said before, I’m thrilled with it! If you’d like to purchase your own Lift Wand you can find the best price HERE! It’s currently on sale for only $79 (marked down from $130).

#Review Blackhead and Pimple Remover Extraction Tools For Acne #blackhead

I ordered this set as a stocking stuffer for a teenager and I’m very impressed with the quality of these tools! They are made of stainless steel so they will last a lift time and can be disinfected after each use. The zipper case they came in is a very nice touch and will keep the tools safe so their not rattling around the bathroom drawer and getting dirty. My extraction kit was sent to me as a product sample so I could witness the quality first hand and post my opinion. I’m very happy with this set and totally recommend it! I can see the quality of these all stainless steel extraction tools just by looking at them and holding them in my hand. This would differently make a great stocking stuffer for the holidays because it’s never to soon to learn how to properly take care of your skin! Using your finger nails to pop a zit is awful because it drives more bacteria into the problem area, causes the skin to swell and get irritated and at worst can scar your face!  If your interested in purchasing this set you can find it on clearance for only $10.99 marked down from ($59.97)!

Billion Dollar Brow Kit Review and Giveaway

Click to enter the giveaway!

I’m so extremely impressed by the Billion Dollar Brows Kit! All I can say is WOW! I’ve tried several different brands of brow products from high end to drug store brands and I really like every piece in this kit! The Universal pencil is truly universal and blind is perfectly, applies smooth and has great coverage! The attached blending brush on the end of the pencil comes in very handy and I love that the two are attached to make life easier! The concealer/highlighter pencil applies smooth with minimum application for a perfect coverage every time. I apply the highlighter directly under my eyebrows and use the blender brush to blend it in. It makes for the perfect look! I love how natural it goes on for everyday makeup and when going out I can apply it heavier for more of a night time make up look. As for the clear brow gel, it goes on clear and sets my brows perfectly! Every hair stays perfectly in place and once it’s dry you can’t even tell it was applied. It’s like hair spray for your brows. All in all this kit was exactly what my brows needed! I know a lot of women skip eyebrows when doing their make up because they don’t seem to be important but I’d like to remind you that when you age the very first place people notice signs of your age are in your eyes. Well, having manicured brows help with the appearance of a more awake youthful appearance by creating a more open appearance instead of that heavy lid look. Just throwing that out there! Other than that, having manicured brows creates a more refine finished look like having manicured nails and a pedicure.
