Give Cleansing a Fruity Twist with Burts Bees Grapefruit Towelettes

Posted on: August 1st, 2014

220

I am a big fan of Burts Bees lip balm so I was excited when I got the pink grapefruit facial cleansing towelettes to try. Since I got them I use them every night before I shower and go to bed. They remove my eye makeup very easily and I have noticed that they also remove dirt and oil very well. I trust them and love using them on my face because they are 99.1% natural. These wipes are also very versatile because they can be used on normal to oily skin. The pink grapefruit scent is lovely and keeps your face smelling clean. There are 30 wipes in this package and they will never dry out because the package has a plastic case that closes to prevent them from drying out. I have been using these wipes every night, and my face hasn’t dried out. I would definitely recommend these and they can be bought at drugstores, ulta, and online at burtsbees.com for around 6 dollars.

Certain Dri AM is great for these hot summer days

Posted on: July 18th, 2014
Certain DRI

Certain DRI

 

Everyday Strength Certain Dri AM is great for these hot summer days. It’s an underarm antiperspirant/deodorant and it really helps with keeping you dry and odor free while you work out or even just laying in the sun. I love it because it has a “morning fresh” scent which is perfect, and is available in solid or roll-on. It is specially formulated to use in the morning because it delivers an all-day deodorant protection and as a companion for Certain Dri Clinical Strength Roll-On or Solid. Personally, I apply it right after I get out of the shower every morning to start the day off right. If you are the type of person that needs clinical strength protection, the full line of Certain Dri products included in the Certain Dri Protection System is also for you. For extra sweat protection also apply the Certain Dri Clinical Strength Anti-Perspirant Roll-On a couple times a week at night before going to bed to control any excess perspiration. Another thing I like about Certain Dri is that it goes on clear. I never have any smudges on myclothes. The first time I tried this, I was worried that it wouldn’t keep me dry all day. But, I went for a jog in the morning and I felt that this really controlled my perspiration. It left me sweat and odor free all day! This is a reliable product that can be found in supermarkets and drug stores nationwide. You can also find it online at www.certaindri.com for around $7 or $8

Seven Steps to a Flawless “No-Makeup” Selfie

Posted on: July 2nd, 2014

Love them or loathe them, selfies are sticking around this summer. Plus, the “no makeup” selfie trend continues to show up on our newsfeeds – including in posts from celebs like Selena Gomez, a client of our Simple Advisory Board makeup artist, Gita Bass. While our favorite famous faces might have good genes and a team of professionals to help them look flawless under any filter, we wanted to share a few tips on how to achieve a glowing “no-makeup” selfie on behalf of Simple Skincare and celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass.

Simple Skincare

Simple Skincare

GITA BASS ON TAKING A MAKEUP-FREE SELFIE:

1.       Good lighting is key! Go near a window or a soft diffuse light and stay away from overhead lighting, especially if it’s fluorescent!

2.       Always stick your jaw out a little like a turtle (trust me) – It will give you a defined jaw and prevents the dreaded double chin.

3.       If you need a flash, make sure to blot the t-zone to avoid looking greasy.

4.       When looking a little dark under the eyes, angle your face up and shoot from above – this will fill in the circles and give you great cheekbones.

 

IF YOU MUST WEAR MAKEUP, GITA RECOMMENDS:

5.       Keep it sneaky: a well applied tinted moisturizer or light foundation should be applied with a light hand, and blended with a damp beauty blender. Cellphone pics tend to bring out redness and imperfections, so a great concealer works wonders.

6.       For a rosy glow that looks natural, apply a bronzing powder where the sun naturally hits: cheekbones, forehead, nose and chin, and then layer a cream blush onto the apples of the cheeks. Blend well with your fingers by pressing the blush into your skin so there are no lines and it looks like your own flush.

7.       To make eyes pop, curl lashes and apply a very light coat of mascara. Make sure to brush through to eliminate any telltale clumps.

AND A FINAL WORD OF WISDOM:

A recent survey by Simple Skincare found that over a quarter (27%) of women in the top cities nationwide report that the longest they’ve gone without washing their face is at least two daysGlowing, healthy-looking skin should always be the first step in any selfie – whether wearing makeup or not. Start with a clean slate by using Simple Radiance Cleansing Wipes, which have no harsh chemicals, no artificial perfumes or dyes that can upset skin, and contain skin-loving ingredients and added vitamins.

Smooth and shiny hair with John Frieda Satin Finish Straightening Iron

Posted on: June 25th, 2014

John Frieda Satin Finish

After trying out several different brands of straightening irons, a friend of mine suggested trying John Frieda Satin Finish.  I fell in love!  I have long curly hair that easily frizz which makes my hair look dry, dull and lifeless.  Not a pretty site especially in the summer heat and humidity.   The John Frieda Satin Finish Straightening Iron transforms my unhealthy looking hair into beautiful, smooth, shiny and manageable hair.  This straightening iron has 1 1/2 inch extra long titanium ceramic coated straightening plates that heat up in 15 seconds.  Wow, no time to lose!  It has a swivel cord so it is comfortable and controllable to use.  The swivel cord also helps to avoid a tangled cord.  It has 11 high heat levels with digital temperature display.  The plates heat up to 455 degrees F.  My mom loves the auto shutoff feature so if I forget to shut the straightening iron, it will do it for me!

The Advanced Ionic technology helps keep moisture in your hair and the damage away from your hair.  The LCD temperature control delivers even heat through the plates which protect your hair, reduces the frizz and enhance shine.  Who knew a straightening iron could do all that!  It usually takes forever and I mean forever to straighten my curly, long, thick hair but using John Frieda Satin Finish with the 1 1/2″ plates, well it was straight in a snap!  My hair is straight, shiny and healthy looking after using John Frieda Satin Finish Straightening Iron!  This is a “hot” new hair tool to prevent the bad hair days!  Check it out at www.johnfrieda.com

Mineral Fusion has 62 Nail Polish Colors for Summer Picking

Posted on: June 2nd, 2014
Mineral Fusion

Mineral Fusion

I am not usually into bright colors for my nail polish, but I really like Mineral Fusion’ss Amethyst nail polish. It was very glossy and had a great shine to it. I only had to apply one coat which was great because I’m not very patient when it comes to applying nail polish. It lasted for quite a long time compared to other nail polishes and didn’t chip very fast either. The thing that I loved most about it was it’s brush. The brush was very thick so applying was easy. The color I have on in my pictures is Amethyst, with the metallic finish. This is a healthier alternative to regular nail polish because of the minerals infused in it. It can help with nail growth and make them stronger.

Mineral Fusion Nail polishes are 100% vegan, chip resistant and formaldehyde, camphor, dibutyl phthalate and toluene free.

There are 61 beautiful shades of colors to pick from on mineralfusion.com. They only $8 each and you can’t go wrong with these beautiful colors!!

NOXEMA is 100 Years Old and Still Amazing

Posted on: May 2nd, 2014

 

image002

I often us Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream. I like how my skin feels after I wash with it and it definitely has helped minimize blemishes. My mother recently told me she used Noxzema in the 70′s and loved the brand. I didn’t realize how old Noxzema was until I did a little research. Noxzema was invented by Francis J. Townsend, a doctor and was originally formulated to treat sunburns. Many people were amazed at how well this cream worked with exema suffers and the name “NOEXEMA” (No-Exema) was born.

Noxzema was marketed as a skin cleanser and cold cream 1n 1950 and has been growing in popularity ever since. My mom says that Noxzema Deep Cleansing Cream has the same Eucalyptus and menthol fragrance that she remembers when she was young.

Noxema

Noxema

What I like about Noxzema is the clean fresh tingly feeling I get after washing my face. Noxzema does a great job remvoving dirt from my pores caused by make-up and other impurities. You will be amazed at how soft your skin feels after using Noxzema. Noxzema is Dermatologist tested and has 7 products in their line.

Check out the entire Noxema line at noxzema.com

Happy 100 Birthday Noxzema!

Refresh with the Best

Posted on: April 28th, 2014
Total Refresh

Total Refresh

Ban Total Refresh cooling body cloths are so convenient. I keep these cloths in my backpack and after track practice, I use them on my neck and underarms to help me feel clean and not so sweaty. They have a powdery finish, that cools your body and smells great. It doesn’t leave my neck or underarms feeling sticky either. The cloths are very thick, and they are perforated so you can select-a-size. The package is small enough to keep in your handbag for an on the go refresh. These can be found at almost any drugstore and they are about 3 dollars at Walmart. Bring them to the gym or to work!!

Ban Refresh Cloths can be found in drug stores nationwide and at http://www.feelbanfresh.com/cooling-wipes/restore.aspx
