Product Review: The Nudes Palette by Maybelline

Wednesday, November 19th, 2014

Nudes51QXf0uzs5LI have long been a fan of the Naked palettes from Urban Decay, but at such a high price (around $54!) I was so excited when the Nudes Palette from Maybelline came out. The palette is around $11 (such a steal!) and could save loads of cash if comparable to the competitor.

Lets start with the colors. I have a pale skin tone, but the Nudes Palette contains the perfect proportion of dark and light shades for my skin. The shimmery shadows are not too glittery, but just enough for a great holiday look or special occasion.

Another great part is that they’ve included instructions on the back of the palette for Quads, Trios and Duos. These instructions are great if you need help mastering the smokey eye look (which by the way is achievable beautifully with the Nudes Palette!) The colors in the palette are arranged accordingly, which is great when you are trying to follow the guidance on the back.

In conclusion I can say that this is my new favorite go-to eyeshadow palette. No need to spend large sums of money on designer brands. This product has it all!

Product Review: Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant Deodorant

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Dove-Advanced-Care
After hearing about the moisturizing ability of Dove’s Advanced Care line of Antiperspirant Deodorant, I was excited to give it a try. I was a little hesitant to give up the clear gel deodorant I had been using to avoid any white marks on my clothes. However, Dove certainly delivered. The Advanced Care line promises 48 hours of odor and wetness protection, as well as NutriumMoisture, for nourished and moisturized skin.

After wearing the product through a long day including stress and an hour and a half workout, my underarms were still fresh, with no odor! I also noticed a difference after a few days, in the texture of my skin. The NutriumMoisture really makes a difference compared to my previous deodorant which seemed to dry my skin. I would definitely recommend Dove’s Advanced Care Antiperspirant Deodorant. I had no regrets, and even though the product is a white solid, it still left my underarms residue free and didn’t show on my clothes at all.

Features & Benefits:

  • Odor and wetness protection for 48 hours
  • NutriumMoisture for ultimate care after every shave
  • Dove is #1 dermatologist recommended for skin care
  • Stays on skin, not on clothes

    Product Review: Ponds Wet Cleansing Towelettes

    Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

    Ponds-TowelettesI may have found the best on-the-go face wipe that is out there. Or at least that I’ve tried. Ponds Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes have by far cleansed my face better than any other face wipes that I’ve tried. Others have been too dry, and I had to add water to them to even remove any makeup (which kind of defeats the purpose of on-the-go).

    These Towelettes are soft, moist, and have a woven texture that allows the cleansing solution to almost create a lather. The wipe exfoliates just enough to remove makeup and oil. Perfect for on-the-go, or days when you’re just too lazy to wash your face.

    Essential Features

    • Soft, textured cloths work gently without drying skin
    • Dermatologist tested
    • Hypoallergenic
    • Safe for contact lens wearers

    Key Ingredients

    Vitamin E – Known to prevent water loss from skin and help promote overall skin health
    Triple Anti-Oxidant complex – Helps to revitalize and refresh skin.

    Tips to Prepare Your Skin for Winter Weather

    Thursday, September 25th, 2014

    As the first official day of fall is just behind us, this is the perfect time to start thinking about the changes to your skincare routine to keep your skin protected in the cooler months of the year.

    Neutrogena-Moisture 1. Use a Good Face Moisturizer
    One of the most important steps is to add a good facial moisturizer to your daily routine (if you aren’t already use one). Assuming you’ve already been using one, now is the time to switch to a deeper moisturizer. A great product for the coldest winter months is Neutrogena Deep Moisture Day Cream with SPF 20. Even though it’s cold outside, the sun’s damaging rays can still harm skin so don’t forget to wear sun protection!

    2.Condition Before You Wash
    Condition dry hair with a deep conditioner before washing. Use a shower cap and coat your hair with an intensive conditioner like Dove’s Intensive Repair Conditioner. Leave the conditioner on for 30 minutes to an hour to help retain moisture. Adding this to your routine once a week can help prevent dryness. Also make sure to use a moisturizing body wash such as Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash, to keep your skin hydrated.

    3. Reduce Your Shower Time
    Taking long hot showers may be tempting in the winter months, but the heat can strip your skin of the moisture that it needs most during this time of year. Try to keep your shower length to ten minutes and don’t put the water at it’s peak temperature.

    4. Keep Your Skin Conditioned
    Get a good moisturizer for your hands and body such as Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment. The moisturizer helps protect from drying effects of wind and cold weather. Make sure to keep a travel size product with you for when you are on-the-go.

    Favorites Friday! Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

    Friday, September 12th, 2014

    Sallly-MiracleThis week’s Favorites Friday feature is Sally Hansen’s Miracle Gel nail polish. We’ve been wanting to try this for a while to see if it lives up to it’s “miracle” claims.

    The product promises 14 days of color and shine with no light needed. Since the other gel kits with the LED light are a bit more of a procedure, the Miracle Gel is an enticing option. You can purchase the nail color and the top coat for around $10 each, or the duo pack for about $16 at your local drugstore.

    After applying the color and top coat, we did notice more of a gel-like finish than most of our other “regular” nail polishes. The finish is a bit smoother as well. The two application steps were super easy, and the result flawless. Now, as the product promises up to 14 days of color and shine, let us admit that the glossy manicure did start to chip before the 14 days were up. It definitely lasts longer than the average polish, but there is an advantage to the longer lasting gel that requires the light.

    Overall, a great product for the low price point compared to an gel kit with an LED, and much less of a hassle. Check out our Facebook page to leave your own review!
