The Charmax makeup mirror is also perfect for travel since it does take up little space in your suitcase or carry-on bag and you will always have it to insure you always look your best. I like everything about this mirror, except one thing........I find myself obsessing over all the little imperfections in my skin. Geez, I never knew that I had so many pores! All the better to help me cover them all up!
The face and body paint kit for kids and sold byBlue Squid is everything you need for a great kids party. Nothing screams FUN like a bunch of kids with painted faces! This set is great because it is non-toxic and FDA approved, perfect for children. The set comes with a large brush for wide coverage and 2 smaller brushes for detail. The brushes are good quality makeup brushes that do not shed, at least not so far. I also found a packet of stencils in the package which is great because you do not have to be a Picasso to create a professional look.
I have had some experience with the crayon type as well as the cheap face paint kits that are sold around Halloween but they pale in comparison to this professional kit. Having the right tools and quality makeup makes all the difference. The colors are rich and vibrant and easy to apply. Don't be afraid to be bold because it washes off with soap and water. It may take a little rubbing but does come off fairly easily. I like to use cold cream to initially wipe off the majority and then wash as usual.
The face paint is also great for sporting events. Paint your teams's logo and wear their colors proudly. I happen to know a few grown men that will have fun with these come football season.
I was part of a test group who received this face paint at little or no cost in exchange for testing, evaluation and unbiased review. Based on my experience with this product, I would definitely recommend it. It is fun and affordable. Great for parties and events. It is professional quality and a little goes a long way. You can purchase a set for yourself on Amazon. Be sure to select Blue Squid.
First the Pros:
I like the controls and the fact that you can control the heat. With 5 heat levels, there is a setting for all hair types. The ceramic heating element provides even heat transfer.
It has a built in negative Ion generator which reduces static and makes hair more manageable. It also does an excellent job straightening and reducing the frizzes.
And the Cons:
The unit is heavy and feels a little awkward. It takes some practice and getting used to handling it. The bristles are hard. This is specifically for straightening, not good for creating body.
I would say that thisbrush is a deal. It does an excellent job straightening and smoothing out your hair. It is sturdy and made well and should last.
I received the Professional Hair Straightner for testing and unbiased review.
I love experimenting with makeup and these brushes are great for applying, blending and contouring. I find that using brushes result in flawless application. There are 5 brushes in this set. Each brush designed for a specific job. It is a mini or travel set so the brushes are smaller in length than standard makeup brushes. Also, is a travel pouch to store and transport your brushes with you. The small golden clutch with magnetic closure is perfect for storing and transporting your brushes.
The synthetic fiber makeup brushes are much nicer than I had imagined. I prefer the synthetic hair over the natural because this type of bristle is less expensive, and it provides a smooth and even finish for cream products. They are also easier to keep clean and are less prone to cause any allergenic outbreaks. Besides, the thought of goat, squirrel or badger hair on my face gives pause to the fate of the poor creature. The handles are wood, which most quality brushes are and the ferrule appears to be very durable holding the fibers securely. So far I have experienced no shedding. A good set of makeup brushes can last for years if cared for properly.
I received the brushes from Ducolor at little or no cost in exchange for testing, evaluation and unbiased review. Based on my observation and use of these brushes, I have no reservation recommending them.
This sleep mask is literally saving my marriage. My husband likes to watch TV when he goes to bed, I prefer to sleep, which is almost impossible with the TV on, even if he does have it captioned. He also likes to keep a night light on because he gets up during the night for bathroom or to let the dog out. This sleep mask along with the bonus ear plugs have completely blocked out the light and sound. Don’t think that I haven’t tried other sleep masks because I have, only to be disappointed. I have purchased cheap ones at the dollar store that actually bled color on my face. I would wake up with a mask under the mask! They were cheaply made and fell apart when washed. I am always drawn to sleep masks when I see them advertised and have tried other brands but am always disappointed. They either let the light in or are glued around the edges.
When I found Lazy Lidz sleep mask, I figured I had nothing to lose because there is a guarantee! I had full intentions of following up on that if this mask did not measure up to its claims. When it arrived, it was quite apparent that this is a quality product. It is double stitched and bound around the edges and there is an extra piece of flexible fabric across the bridge area of the nose, where light usually tries to sneak in. The fabric conforms to the shape of my nose blocking it out entirely. The soft velvety material against my skin is like a slice of heaven. The satin on the outside is smooth as silk and nothing snags on it like hair, pillow case or sheets. It did not make me feel hot or sweaty. There is an adjustable elastic with Velcro so it can be adjusted to fit snug without binding or getting your hair caught and tangled. The band also has two loops to hold your ear plugs so that they are always handy.
The bottom line is that I am very pleased with this purchase. It is comfortable and sturdy so it should hold up very well even through many washings. I received a discount on this product in return for evaluation and unbiased review which I have provided.
Glow2Go self-tanning towelettes were a new and innovative concept to me. I have tried self-tanning products with some degree of satisfaction, but they were creams, foams or sprays. Some work better than others, but one thing is certain, we have come a long way from the first self-tanning lotion. This is the first time using a prepackaged towelette. I really like the concept of the premeasured, prepackaged I am not fair skinned. I have olive colored skin which typically does not burn.
The color is nice, not orange, but a nice glowing bronze. I was curious how these products work and why not everyone gets the same result. I researched as I do any product that I use and found that as quoted from the American Academy of Dermatology, the most effective products available are sunless- or self-tanning lotions that contain dihydroxyacetone DHA as the active ingredient. DHA is a colorless sugar that interacts with the dead cells located in the stratum corneum of the epidermis. As the sugar interacts with the dead skin cells, a color change occurs. This change usually lasts about five to seven days from the initial application. Depending on the amount of dead skin cells you have, it will work differently. It is also important to follow the instructions and don’t shave for at least 24 hours and start with clean skin, in other words not too many dead skin cells. I found that tid bit quite informative.
Body Merry’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum goes to work on your skin as soon as you apply it. It is loaded with nourishing moisturizers like Jojoba oil. It is all natural which is a huge plus in my book! The serum is clear and odorless and goes on smooth. It is fully absorbed, leaving my skin soft and silky. I had been using another brand and noticed this one is not as thick as my current brand. It comes in a dropper bottle vs. a pump dispenser so a couple of drops is all that is needed to cover my problem areas on my skin. Now you might wonder why this hyaluronic acid says it is VEGAN. It led me to research if there is any other kind and I found that hyaluronic acid is present in the human body. It is also used to treat osteoarthritis. The hyaluronic acid used in medical treatments usually comes from the combs of roosters. Yes, I think I want Vegan on my face! Hyaluronic acid is also used as a lip filler in plastic surgery. Some people apply hyaluronic acid to the skin for healing wounds, burns, skin ulcers, and as a moisturizer. There seems to be a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. I have been seeing this ingredient in in many beauty products on the market today. Most of these products are very expensive. Body Merry makes it more affordable but, does it really work?
If you haven’t already heard, caffeine is a new hot ingredient in the skincare industry. It not only perks me up in the morning but can also perk up my skin, It constricts blood vessels to take the red out and also breaks down cellulite. You can imagine my delight when I saw this cream. I found the ingredients interesting because I did not see coffee beans so the caffeine comes from another source. Included on the list of ingredients is horse chestnut and fenugreek seeds. According to Web MD “Horse chestnut seed and leaf are used for treating varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and swollen veins (phlebitis).” I can see it working in a beauty cream. Fenugreek seeds is said to help swelling and is used in soaps and cosmetics. It has the odor of maple syrup. This cellulite cream does have a distinctive scent. It is unexpected but not offensive. You can smell it when applying but it does not linger. I have been using this for a couple of weeks and do not see a marked difference in my cellulite. My skin is smoother and it does seem to take the red out. I would imagine that over time, this would be a beneficial treatment for cellulite. It is a good moisturizer and does make my skin feel tighter. I like the fact that it does also have retinol which repairs skin damage from the sun and the ingredients are natural. I am glad that I had the opportunity to acquire this product at a discount in return for my unbiased review.
This beauty item is just the right tool to get the job done. When it arrived, I couldn’t wait to try it out, however the manufacturer recommends charging for 10 hours before first use. I was a little disappointed, but alas, good things come to those who wait. You see, it has a rechargeable battery which means I do not have to purchase batteries and it makes it mobile. But does it work? You betcha it works!
.Now, I was given a discount on this product in return for my review, but honestly I have wanted one of these for a while so I probably would have paid full price knowing that it was something that I would love. Guess that is why the company is called Foot Love.
