SJ Creations Coconut Moisturizing Body Butter

Thursday, October 21st, 2010

For people with excessively dry skin, body butter can be a very effective solution. The tricky part is that many quality body butters cost significantly more than body creams or lotions. At first we were suspicious of the $5.99 price tag, but we really liked SJ Creations’ Coconut Moisturizing Body Butter. It has shea butter (which is a must for dry skin), and as a bonus it also has aloe vera. If the scent of coconut is not your thing, they also have the same body butter in Olive, Cocoa Butter, and Soy.

Maybelline XXL Pro Extensions

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

We’ve tried many different types of mascara that claimed to give the look of false eyelashes, and although they have worked very well we hadn’t encountered a formula that made our lashes look like falsies. Maybelline XXL Pro Extensions is the most extreme mascara we’ve tried to date, it truly thickens and extends your eyelashes to the point where they look fake. This mascara requires a little more work than you might be used to – first you put a microfiber basecoat on, let it dry, then apply the 2nd coat of black mascara. But the results are definitely worth it. And unlike false eyelashes, there isn’t much work to do to when you come home. Your regular facial soap and water will remove the formula. Tip: Put the white coat on your lashes, then work on the rest of your makeup, and then do the second coat last. Letting the first coat dry really does make a difference!

Maybelline Expert Wear Eye Shadow Quad

Monday, October 4th, 2010

There is a reason why ‘how to do a smoky eye’ articles are published almost every month in fashion magazines. It’s really not an easy look to do. Maybelline took the guess work out of the smoky eye look with a quad (200 smokes) of easily blendable shadows that are marked with where you put the colors. Our biggest problem with inexpensive shadows is that the color goes on unevenly, making your eye look more so injured than smoky. However, what we loved the most was the quality of these shadows, even the darkest color went on evenly and blended well. With this we were able to achieve model worthy eye shadow looks in no time!

SJ Creations Ginger & Soy Creamy Hand Wash

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Dry skin? There could be many contributing factors: central heating or air, extreme hot or cold weather, smoking, caffeine, alcohol, or even poor diet. Regardless of the cause, when you have dry skin, washing your hands can just make it worse. We like SJ Creation’s Ginger & Soy Creamy Hand Wash because it leaves your hands feeling clean – not parched. And the fun part is that it has a light, pleasing fragrance. SJ Creations is a private based in California that offers high quality but affordable products. This is the first product we have tried from their line and so far we are impressed.

Garnier Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

Monday, September 27th, 2010

If you read fashion magazines you’ve probably seen many advertisements for  Garnier’s Nutritioniste Moisture Rescue line of skincare products. We tried the Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream and it’s our new favorite moisturizer. This product claims to moisturize for 24 hours despite being lightweight, and contains vitamin E and grape water extract. When you have very dry skin, your options are usually thick anti-aging creams and lotions. We found that we got more moisture from this lightweight gel than we do from our expensive anti-aging creams. Best of all, the condition of our skin gradually increased over the course of a week. The claim that the moisture lasts for 24 hours may seem extreme, but we were amazed to see this moisturizer defy dry skin even after a plane ride. Feel free to use this moisturizer with makeup, since it’s a lightweight gel it won’t interfere with your foundation. See the whole product line at^PRD_SKINCARE^RESCUE^RESCUE_HOME
