John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo – Product Review

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016

John-Frieda-Sheer-BlondeIf you have dark blonde hair and want to go a bit lighter, this is the shampoo for you! I have naturally blonde hair that is darker at the top/roots, and can sometimes get a bit brassy. Looking for a way to lighten up a bit for summer, I decided to try John Frieda’s Go Blonder Shampoo.

After the first use, I honestly didn’t notice a huge difference. The shampoo smells great, and cleanses perfectly, leaving my strands nourished and shiny. I stuck with the shampoo for a full week, and it definitely made a difference! The longer you use it, the brighter the results will be. My hair is at least a full shade lighter, and the ends (which were lighter to begin with) are probably two shades blonder.

I’d definitely recommend this shampoo if you are looking for a summer touch-up and want to skip the salon and pricey highlights.

Product: John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo

Description: “Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Lightening Shampoo gradually lightens blonde hair for a year-round sun-kissed look. The formula, containing a natural Lightening Complex, gently reduces the color pigments in the hair.” – From the John Frieda website

CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara
– Product Review

Wednesday, March 16th, 2016

198ddb92-565d-4e4d-be28-0226fc478cbf.jpg.w960As a woman with naturally thin lashes, I was so excited to try CoverGirl’s The Super Sizer Mascara. Promising 400% more volume and “fanned out lashes”, the mascara sounds like the perfect fit for someone like me. Upon first use, I found that the formula results in minimal clumps, and has a nice texture. The brush is a bit small in my opinion, but it does a great job at reaching each and every lash. The formula is also perfect if you like to go over your lashes 2-3 times with additional coats.

After an entire work day, the mascara stayed on flawlessly and still looked great. My lashes did appear to be more voluminous than my previous mascara, although not sure they had any more length than before. The only con that I encountered was at the end of the night when it came to removing my eye makeup. The mascara was harder to remove than some of my other products, and actually pulled out a couple of my lashes. I’d definitely recommend investing in a good eye makeup remover, and the problem should be solved.

Product: CoverGirl The Super Sizer Mascara

Description: “The Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara gives you 400% more corner-to-corner volume for full, fanned out lashes. Our amazing Lash Styler transforms even small lashes— just twirl as you apply it to your lashes for an instantly Super Sized lash look. Opthalmologically tested, suitable for those who wear contact lenses.” – From the CoverGirl website

Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips – Product Review

Thursday, December 3rd, 2015

Biore-StripsSince I’ve noticed that charcoal skincare products have started to become all the rage recently I decided to give these Biore Pore Strips a test. Lets face it, everyone wants their pores to be smaller—or invisible—so here’s one beauty blogger’s two cents on these charcoal pore strips.

I was careful to follow the instructions as it had been a while since I had used any type of pore strips. These ones require you to put them on and add a bit of water to moisten. I left them on for the allotted time – 10 minutes, and everything was good. However, when it came time to remove the strip it was very difficult to get off, and it left dark a black charcoal mess on my face. To be honest, that was almost enough for me to throw the rest of the box away. But I did notice a little improvement in my skin. My pores did look better temporarily. But since it was such a process and hassle from beginning to end, I will be continuing my search for a good pore shrinking product.

Product: Biore Deep Cleansing Charcoal Pore Strips

Description: “Remove weeks (yes – weeks!) worth of pore gunk with just one strip. With natural charcoal, pore strips suck out oil and blackhead breeding impurities, leaving skin feeling fresh, clean and 3x less oily. To use: Slap it on. Wait 10 minutes. Strip it off. With Natural Charcoal, known for its ability to draw out and trap deep-down impurities” – From the Biore website

Price: $7.99 at CVS.

Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Pads – Product Review

Thursday, November 12th, 2015

glycolic-padsOne of my favorite new products is Nip+Fab’s Glycolic Fix Pads. My skin can sometimes be acne prone, but yet it still dries out easily so it is hard to find a product that suits my needs that contains Glycolic Acid. But these pads contain hyaluronic acid, which helps to moisturize skin. The pads exfoliate gently and help even skin tone.

I have almost finished my first tub of pads, and I can actually tell a difference in my skin! This is one of the few products I’ve tried where I can see a noticeable difference. My skin tone looks healthy and I feel like dark spots have been reduced.

Product: Nip+Fab Glycolic Fix Pads

Description: “Unveil younger-looking skin. 60 radiance-boosting pads, soaked in exfoliating glycolic acid retexture + resurface skin whilst witch hazel helps to tone. This moisturizing formula with hyaluronic acid + soothing blue daisy helps to reveal brighter + smoother looking skin.”

Price: $12.95 at Walgreens.

How to Transition to a Fall Skincare Routine

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Aveeno-Body-WashAs the cooler fall season approaches us, the air will be drier and weather conditions will be harsh on skin. That summer glow will be gone, and it is important to make sure your skincare routine has been adjusted for the change. Here are a few tips to make the transition smooth and keep your skin healthy and looking fabulous.

1. Add a Facial Moisturizer to Your Routine

If you haven’t already, make sure you are using an oil-free facial moisturizer once daily. The colder weather can dry out your skin and leave it chapped and cracked. If you are already using a moisturizer, it might be a good idea to switch from a light moisturizer to a medium or heavy facial moisturizer or cream. Skin needs more moisture in the cooler weather than in the summer when humidity is at it’s highest. A good facial moisturizer to try is Neutrogena’s Deep Moisture Day Cream With SPF 20 (don’t forget to use sun protection, even in the cooler seasons!).

2. Use a Hydrating Body Wash
Used to using soap in the shower? Think again! Most soaps can dry out your skin, so switching to a creamy body wash or gel will keep your skin moisturized. Try Aveeno Positively Nourishing Hydrating Body Wash.

Nuance3. Exfoliate
Don’t forget the importance of exfoliating to keep your skin smooth and soft. Drier skin is going need more exfoliation than hydrated skin. Use a salt or sugar scrub in the shower weekly to buff and smooth skin and remove any dead skin cell buildup. One of our favorites is Nuance Salma Hayek Walnut Body Scrub sold at CVS/pharmacy. It not only moisturizes while it exfoliates, but it smells delicious!

4. Lip Protection

Not that anyone would forget chapstick, but don’t underestimate the importance of lip protection. With the cooler weather, your lips will dry out even quicker than in the summer and you’ll find yourself needing to apply more often. Keep lips moist with Burt’s Bees Chapstick, available in a variety of delicious scents.

With just these few easy adjustments, you can make the transition from your summer skincare routine to fall skincare a smooth one. Don’t forget to take travel size products with you on-the-go, especially when you’ll be traveling away from home where the weather isn’t what you’re used to. A purse-sized hand cream or lotion and chapstick are must-haves for the fall season. And be sure to add in some of the delicious fall fragrances like vanilla and brown sugar!
