I know what you’re thinking: “Serum? Where’s the eyedropper and the little brown bottle? Isn’t this just a moisturizer?” But Amarte Aqua Veil Pure Hydration Serum isn’t your everyday skincare product. Continue reading “Amarte Aqua Veil Pure Hydration Serum Review” »
Though I try to avoid heat styling, I do adore my CHI flat iron, and my friends have been raving to me about Farouk’s hit companion goodie CHI Silk Infusion since I can remember. In fact, this product’s been such a sensation, I’m rather embarrassed to just now be jumping on the bandwagon. Late to the game is better than never showing up at all, right?
Silk Infusion is the perfect name for this leave-in. I only use a tiny amount, but my color-fried locks feel amazingly soft. With my thick hair, I often have problems with leave-ins being too gunky and weighty – but not this baby! Silk Infusion glides in without adding a hint of buildup.
Chi Silk Infusion can go on dry hair, but I also like to style by applying it while my hair’s still wet and blow-drying it in.
The verdict: 10/10! Believe the hype.
CHI Silk Infusion sells for $8.95 in the 2oz. size at Amazon.
Despite my being in my late twenties, I still have issues with acne. Hooray! Scanning the shelves for Emergency Four-Alarm Magic Acne Eliminator, I decided to try Clearasil Ultra Acne Solution System. The pack comes with a cleanser, toner, moisturizer and a free sample of their quick-start treatment cream. I began using it daily, at morning and night, and instantly fell in love.
The cleanser is a little grainy – I am guessing to act as an exfoliant – but it is gentle enough for daily use. It leaves your skin feeling clean, fresh and looking good. It works really well at removing all makeup including eye makeup, which some cleansers have a hard time doing. It is to be used every morning and every night.
Ladies, I have found the impossible: a product for my eyebrows that I completely adore. Not one that I like. Not one that simply works well. No, this is a product I am wholly, deeply in love with.
Anastasia Beverly Hills is the reigning queen of eyebrow grooming – what an odd title! – but they’ve surpassed even themselves with their new Brow Pen. What is it? Simply, it’s a small marker-like pen with a flexible tip that fills in your eyebrows with soft, even, natural looking color in mere seconds.
With all of the dyeing, curling, straightening and blowdrying I put my hair through, some days I’m surprised it hasn’t fallen out yet. One major reason that my hair graces me with the privelege of not yet being bald is my use of products like Ouidad’s Botanical Boost, a lightweight leave-in that spritzes in easily and provides natural moisture. If you have curls, pay attention: this is the solution your dry, brittle hair’s been waiting for.
