Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster Review

April 18, 2014 in Face Serum Reviews, Skincare Reviews by Sassy

dermalogica skin hydrating booster reviewHello dolls! I got the opportunity to try a FAB new product from skincare giant Dermalogica: their Skin Hydrating Booster. Spoiler alert: my skin is LOVING it!

The Skin Hydrating Booster is a super hydrating fluid that intensely moisturizes thirsty skin as it smooths and minimizes fine lines. As you may know, I’m obsessed with skincare science. This water-based, non-greasy formula contains hyaluronic acid, which holds one thousand times its weight in water for powerful hydration. If you haven’t tried hyaluronic acid, you really should. I even take oral supplements of it daily. Kind of like collagen, it helps the skin hold its links together smoothly – and also like collagen, it degrades as you age. So adding some back in CAN’T hurt!

Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum Review

April 16, 2014 in Hair Product Reviews, Leave-In Reviews by Sassy

paul-mitchell-super-skinny-serum-reviewHappy Tax Day! I hope you filed already! :)

Working in a salon, you eventually find your favorite products to use on yourself and others. One of mine would have to be Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum, a product from their smoothing line.

I used this product on nearly every client at the salon because it reduces drying time. Just rub one pump into damp hair, then blow dry. Super Skinny Serum helps keep down frizz and dry hair more quickly while adding shine. It can be used on just about anybody, and all it takes is one pump! A little goes a long way.

The only negative: if your hair’s too thin or fine, this product could weigh it down and make it look oily. Try to test it out before you buy if you’re worried, and use only a little at a time, building it in to make sure you don’t oversaturate your hair.

The verdict: 9 out of 10! Great for anyone in need of frizz control and added shine.

Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Smoothing Serum sells at Amazon.com for $19.88.

Makeup Tips: Skip Eye Shadow Primer

April 12, 2014 in Beauty How Tos, Makeup How Tos by Sassy

applying-eyeshadowWith the current state of the economy, it seems like everyone’s scrambling to make ends meet. If you’re on a budget these days and can’t spare the extra dough to buy some snazzy eyeshadow primer, here’s an easy alternative that works just fine.

Apply a little liquid foundation to eyelids with your fingertips before putting on eye shadow. I tried this with MAC Studio Fix Foundation (which I can’t use for my face anymore anyway) and my shadow stayed perfect until I washed my face. No fading, no creasing – just flawless eye shadow all day long. Give it a try!
