Have a Perfect Hair day With Living Proof!

I have very dry, frizzy hair. I have tried so many different products and some help the problem, but none fix it. I have had luck with Keratin Treatments, but I feel bad using so many chemicals on my head. Luckily we can have a Perfect Hair Day with Living Proof!

What I Thought

I received Living Proof’s Perfect Hair day 5 in 1 Styling Treatment and their Satin Hair Serum to review. Both products looked amazing and with Jennifer Aniston all over their page it has to be good, right?

Perfect Hair Day with Living Proof

First I will start with Perfect Hair Day. I never seem to have luck with styling treatments. They always seem to either dry out my hair or make it stiff or sticky looking. If anything it made my hair softer and easier to manage. This product is meant to treat your hair, help with styling, and it even offers heat protection! I couldn’t ask for anything more! It has been a great product to use and I truly love it!

I have tried so many different serums in my hair that it drives my husband nuts. He just doesn’t understand why I want my hair to look great when I am already married. He doesn’t seem to get that if I feel better about myself everything else will get better too. Oh well maybe one day he will learn. Anyway, Living Proof’s Satin Serum worked great! It didn’t leave my hair oily or sticky and helped get rid of the frizz. It is by far the best hair serum I have tried!

Lately I have been very disappointed with my hair. Not only has it been extra dry and frizzy lately, but my hair has been falling out left and right. So I went from having thick hair to having very thin hair and not nearly as much of it. I have been really missing the volume in my hair which is another reason I was excited about these products. Not only do they help get rid of that dry and frizzy look, but they also help create volume!

So far I love Living Proof Products and I hope to be able to review more for you guys in the future! Be sure to check out their website here!

I loved how easy these were to apply and how great they looked on me. I even got compliments on them less than an hour after I had put them on!  The design itself is beautiful and it is not as textured as I had pictured from the description. Yes there is texture to them, but they are less than what you would feel if you had put on gems by hand. I do not normally like texture, but these have the perfect amount.

NeoCell Review and Giveaway!

I always find it hard to keep my hair, skin and nails healthy. Which is why I was so glad to be able to post a NeoCell Review! What is NeoCell? NeoCell is the #1 Collagen brand in the world and a leader in the field of nutritional science. They offer many different products to keep you happy and healthy.

I received their Keratin Hair Volumizer and their Collagen Beauty Builder to review. I have really thin nails and really dry hair so I was excited to see if their products really worked!

NeoCell Review

First I will talk about the Keratin Hair Volumizer. I LOVE Keratin products and they have never let me down, so I knew I had to have this product! They are medium sized white capsules and you take two, twice daily. Our hair and nails are made of Keratin and collagen so the two main ingredients help strengthen what you already have.

NeoCell Review - Keratin Hair Volumizer7

I currently use a Keratin treatment on my hair as well as wash my hair with a Keratin based shampoo and my hair has never been so smooth and this product has made my hair even stronger and has significantly reduced the amount of hair loss I have been experiencing. For the last couple of years I have been loosing hair constantly. Even my husband has been getting upset because he finds my hair everywhere. So anything I can do to help stop my hair from falling out benefits pretty much everyone in my house (specifically my vacuum).

While I may be able to baby my nails and get them to be a little longer and stronger, they never seem to stay long. Also, my skin is not what it used to be after having the girls, so I thought that the Collagen Beauty Builder would work wonders for me!

NeoCell Review - Collagen Beauty Builder

These remind me of the size of Calcium pills. You take 3 pills, twice daily to get radiant, smooth and hydrated skin and strong nails. I have never taken collagen anything before so this was a new experience for me. I have however heard very good things about collagen and how it works wonders for skin and nails so I couldn’t wait to see how it worked for me.

After taking these products for about a week I noticed less hair fallout, along with hair that was stronger and extremely shiny. I generally have a lot of blemishes because of so many problems with my skin and I have noticed that my blemishes have been healing faster than normal and that my skin has just overall been softer and healthier. I also noticed that my nails have been stronger and almost seem to have a shiny coat over them.

I would definitely recommend these two products to anyone looking for beautiful hair, skin, and nails that like me, can’t seem to get them by themselves. NeoCell also offers other great products that you can find on their website here.

Giveaway!

Gorgeous Eyes with NYC New York Color- Review

I always get compliments on my eyes. It is one area of my face that I am proud to flaunt! So when I get the opportunity to review things to make my eyes look even better I jump on it! I was lucky enough to receive some great eye products from NYC New York Color to review for you guys.
New York Color
I received some great products to let you know that you can create some great looks on a budget without losing quality! I received samples of NYC New York Color’s Show Time Glitter Pencils, Individualeyes Custom Compacts and Big Bold Curl Mascara.
I love eyeliner! I swear eye liner is one of my favorite make up products. However, it is also one of the products I am very picky about. I was very excited to receive the Show Time Glitter Pencils as I love anything that sparkles. I was impressed with how smooth this eye liner was and with how many sparkles it produced, but I was a little disappointed with the color quality. I prefer really dark bold colors and while these colors were pretty, they were not very bold.
Even though they were not as bold as I would like they were still pretty and would work great for someone looking for a more subtle look. They also lasted a lot longer than I thought they would which was a nice surprise.
Next up is the Individualeyes Custom Compacts. I was very excited to be able to try these as I have been wanting one for months! Each compact comes with 4 eye shadows, a primer, and a illuminator.

Here are some swatches of the two compacts I received. The top row is with the included primer and the bottom row is without.

Smokey Browns
Smokey Greens
The shadows themselves are pretty pigmented at first, but do blend very well. The primer (as you can see above) does help hold the shadow which is great. I think my favorite part about these compacts is the illuminator. I love the way eyes look when they have a white based color on the inner corner and I love that one is included in this compact. I found that this compact had little to no creasing and the shadows themselves were of good quality.
I would have to say that my favorite of all these products would have to be the Big Bold Curl Mascara! I used to have what I would have considered perfect lashes. They used to be long, dark, and curled perfectly without any help. When I had my first daughter I lost all of my eye lashes. After some hard work and some of the products found on this site, my eye lashes have some what grown back. They are not as full and long as they used to be, but something is better than nothing. Since they have grown back I have a really hard time trying to get my lashes to curl.
This mascara does a wonderful job of curling my lashes without using any scary instruments or adding so many layers that it clumps. The brush itself is a little intimidating but I loved the results I got from it. This is definitely my new favorite mascara and I’m sure I will be buying more soon!

Of course as soon as I open the box with my new goodies, guess who comes running to help try them out? Yes, little H came to the rescue to prove to us that she really is a little princess.

Cute little princess aside, here is the look I created on myself:

I thoroughly enjoyed these products, especially the Big Bold Curl Mascara! You can find these and other NYC New York Color products on their website here.

Beautiful Glass Nail Files from Mont Bleu: Review and Giveaway

I remember when Glass Nail Files first became popular. They were decently expensive, but after trying them out I was hooked. I still for some reason can’t wrap my pretty little head around how well they work and have become obsessed with some of the really pretty ones! As I’m sure you can imagine I was very excited when Mont Bleu told me they were sending some of their gorgeous files for me to review!
mont bleu logotype
I still remember my first glass nail file. Me and my mother bought files in our favorite color with our initials on them. They were pretty but the monograms were off center and crooked and while I loved it, I had always wished I could find something better. I kept that file for a couple years until one day it snapped in half in my purse. I was devastated! I was so upset about it breaking that I decided I wasn’t going to get another until I knew that I could take care of it better (I was about 16 at the time).
I recently found Mont Bleu’s website and instantly was reminded of why I love glass nail files! Their collection is amazing, and had just about every color combination I could think of! After talking with them I received 2 glass nail files, a pair of tweezers, and a pair of really cute earrings.
These nail files were even more gorgeous in person than I thought they would be! The crystals are extremely clear and cut so well that they look like gems! Of course I couldn’t wait to try these out so I immediately went to file my nails with them! I was very impressed! These nail files worked 100 times better than my old glass file, but were soft enough to not destroy my nails at the same time!

 

I also love that the colors seem to fade into the file area instead of just being cut off were the file ends. I think it adds a more delicate touch to these files. My last file was also rounded at the end, so I really enjoy that these have a pointed end to clean under my nails, or even push my cuticles back.
Crystal glass nail files from Czech Republic
 It amazes me how many choices Mont Bleu offers for nail files! It would be extremely difficult to pick just one! You can find just about any design you want on their website! Some are even hand painted designs!
Next up for review are these amazing tweezers! I am pretty picky about tweezers, mainly because anything not girly in my house is stolen by either my husband or my brother-in-law. So I was very happy when I saw these included with the files. I love that these tweezers are higher quality than I expected! Some companies with similar products will “bedazzle” the cheapest pair of tweezers they can find. These tweezers are really nice! Not only are they designed really well to get the perfect grip, but they have a rubberized finish so they are easy to hold (and look super cool too)! My favorite color is also purple so I just plain love these things!
Lastly I was also sent these crystal earrings. I don’t typically wear earrings, but these are so gorgeous that I have been flaunting them with pride. I love that they change colors with different lights. As you know bold colors are a must have for me, so these are perfect! Not only do they make beautiful earrings like these, but they also make rings, necklaces, bracelets and just about anything else you can think of!
I absolutely loved all the products I received from Mont Bleu and I hope I can share more with you soon! You can find these and other great Mont Bleu products on their website here. Use code :”BLOG” for 20% off your purchase!Giveaway!

Sally Hansen Gel Nail Starter Kit

Before becoming a blogger, I had some serious issues with my nails! My nails and cuticles were so dry that they would constantly split and crack. I didn’t feel like a real girl unless I had acrylics on, but now that I’m a full time mommy I don’t have the time or the money to invest in getting my nails professionally done. So to say blogging has changed my life in many ways would be an understatement. I have learned about so many products that not only make me feel more like a woman, but that also make me feel better about myself!
One of the products that have truly helped me have beautiful nails happens to be Gel Nail Polish. Not only does it protect my nails from breaking and cracking, but it also helped me stop the nasty habit of biting my nails (mainly because I couldn’t bite through the gel). After my nails started growing I decided that it was time to do some major research and make sure that my nails stay as healthy as possible. So today I am going to share with you a great Gel Nail Kit that can jump-start your way to healthy nails like it did for me!
I received Sally Hansen’s Gel Manicure Starter Kit in Shell We Dance, which is a light pink color. I was very excited to try another gel kit! This particular kit had me really excited because of everything that it contains!
This kit includes the LED light, base coat, color coat, top coat, cleansing wipes, remover, a cuticle stick and a nail file. One thing that I was really excited about was the LED light included in this kit. The last one I had seemed like a good design but because of its size and shape made it incredible awkward to cure my nails. This light while it may seem awkward at first, is actually is very comfortable and easy to hold. The only issue that I had with this LED light was that the bulbs did run a little hot, but not hot enough to burn and technically your not supposed to touch them anyway (sometimes I am a little too curious).
The other gel kits that I have tried have included a base/top coat as one bottle, so I was also a little curious about if there was an actual difference between the base coat and the top coat included in this kit. The main reason I was pondering about this was because this kit did not include a primer which seemed a little off to me. So my first idea was to look at the ingredients. Instantly I could tell that there was a BIG difference between the two.

GEL BASE COAT INGREDIENTS:

ETHYL ACETATE, ALCOHOL DENAT., DI-HEMA TRIMETHYLHEXYL DICARBAMATE, BUTYL ACETATE, HEPTANE, NITROCELLULOSE, TOSYLAMIDE/EPOXY RESIN, HEMA, HYDROXYPROPYL METHACRYLATE, ISOBORNYL METHACRYLATE, ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL,TRIMETHYLPENTANYL DIISOBUTYRATE, POLYVINYL BUTYRAL, CAMPHOR, TRIMETHYLBENZOYL DIPHENYLPHOSPHINE OXIDE, HYDROXYCYCLOHEXYLPHENYL KETONE, BENZOPHENONE-1, DIMETHICONE, D&C VIOLET NO. 2 (CI 60725), D&C RED NO. 33 (CI 17200). -
FLAMMABLE

GEL TOP COAT INGREDIENTS:
DI-HEMA TRIMETHYLHEXYL DICARBAMATE, HEMA, HYDROXYPROPYL METHACRYLATE, TRIMETHYLBENZOYL DIPHENYLPHOSPHINE OXIDE, HYDROXYCYCLOHEXYL PHENYL KETONE, POLYSILICONE-13, D&C VIOLET NO. 2 (CI60725).

My first thought was that the base coat must have ingredients that help adhere the polish to your nails and keep it there for longer. When I put the base coat on it even looked different than the traditional base/top coat. I could tell that it was almost trying to fuse with my nails instead of just trying to cover them up. Which I thought was pretty awesome.

I was very happy with how my nails turned out! This kit seemed to make my nails more smooth than some of the other systems I have tried. Not only that, but they actually stayed on with no chipping and no discoloration! While some other gel companies stayed on some start to fade or peel on the ends. While the light pink is not my favorite I did love the kit and the color was beautiful! Even the color was a light color, it only required two coats unlike other light gels I have tried.

I definitely think that everyone should have a gel nail kit! You can find Sally Hansen’s Gel Nail Starter Kit on their website here, or at a retailer near you.

Ouch-Relief Sugar Wax Kit by Sally Hansen: Review

I have never been a fan of really any hair remover products. It has been quite a while since I have tried any, but they either don’t work, are too painful, or some are even too messy! Thanks to Sally Hansen I have found a solution to all three of those problems!
When I heard that I was getting this kit I was both excited and terrified. My last experience with a waxing kit did not end well and I vowed NEVER AGAIN. However, this kit really had me intrigued.

What Sally Hansen says about the Ouch Relief Sugar Wax Kit:

Hair removal can be painful and frightening. But not anymore with the Ouch-Relief Wax kit. NEW Pain-Relief technology in a pre-treatment wipe helps to reduce the pain associated with waxing. This no-heat formula is easy-to-use and mess-free as the wax simply washes off with water.

What I think:
There are a couple really great things about this kit. First I will start off with the most important part. Each kit comes with pre-treatment wipes, wax, wax strips, and a wax spatula. The item in this kit that had me the most interested was the pre-treatment wipes. They are meant to numb the area you are waxing so that it is not as painful. Keep in mind that these will not make waxing pain-free, but will help. I was a little worried that they would not work but was surprised to find that they worked way better than I thought they would! Sure I could still feel that I was waxing, but it made it tolerable for me. The pain is main reason I decided not to do at home treatments before so this is wonderful for me!
I loved the wax included in this kit! It is made of honey and sugar and washes off with just water! It smells absolutely amazing too! I hate that some similar products have a horrible chemical smell. I get headaches very easily and I swear that I can smell chemicals for hours after I use a product, so this was a nice change for me. Also I have sensitive skin and this wax left my skin soft and did not irritate my skin at all!

Some kits I have used came with the waxing papers, but none matched the quality of this kit. The strips included in this kit are very thick and are not as paper-like as others. It makes it easy to grip the strips and stays strong so that you can apply enough pressure to remove the hair.

Overall I really liked this kit. It did not remove hair as easily as I thought it would, but the pain relief wipes made the extra tries worth it. At around $10 this kit is definitely worth the money! I would recommend this kit to anyone with sensitive skin or that does not have a high pain tolerance when it comes to waxing.

You can find this and other great Sally Hansen products on the website here, or at a retailer near you!

Get a flawless face with Laura Mercier: Review

Since I started blogging, I have fallen in love with some wonderful makeup brands. One of those brands happens to be Laura Mercier. Everything I have tried from them has been of superior quality and I can always count on them for a beautiful look. Recently they sent me some products to review for you and I am proud to say that they do not disappoint!
I received the new addition to their primer line called Protect, as well as their Creme Smooth Foundation to try out. 

Here is what Laura Mercier has to say about these two products:


Prime the skin for makeup application, creating a smooth surface between skincare and makeup so skin texture looks smooth and makeup lasts and lasts. With the added benefits of UVB/UVA protection, this product creates the perfect canvas for makeup application.

  • Lightweight, oil-free creamy gel creates perfect canvas for makeup application
  • Primes and protects flawlessly; prepares face for Foundation, Tinted Moisturizer and makeup application
  • Provides UVB/UVA SPF 30 protection; helps prevent signs of premature aging, due to sun exposure
  • PA+++ provides high level protection against UVA rays
  • Features “Colour True Complex” to keep makeup looking fresh and colour-true all day
  • Conditions with Vitamins A & E
  • Perfect for all skin types, even sensitive

A modern, lightweight foundation that floats over skin without visibly settling into fine lines. The hydrating formula includes a multipeptide complex infused with Dermaxyl and advanced optical diffusers that help to visibly smooth out lines and wrinkles.

  • Perfect for normal to dry skin
  • Offers buildable coverage with a radiant, smooth finish
  • Available in 12 shades across a range of skin tones
  • Non-comedogenic
  • 1.0 oz./30g

What I think:

Primer- Protect

Since this would be my first time playing with a foundation primer I was unsure of what to expect. The only thing I have ever used that was close to this would either be an eyelid primer or a bb cream. At first I was a little worried because as you can see, the formula is a little thin. I just didn’t think it would smooth out the surface of my skin as well as it the package says.

After using it a few times I was quite impressed with how well it works. I love that this primer is spf 30! I am probably the worst when it comes to putting on sunscreen or really anything to protect my skin from the sun. However, I will admit that when buying makeup one of the first things that I look for is something that will protect my face from the sun. Now I just need to work on protecting the rest of my body and I will be set!

Creme Smooth Foundation- Warm Ivory

I was very excited to review this foundation! I love Laura Mercier Foundations and this one is definitely my new favorite! It is super smooth, and covers wonderfully. I have combination skin so I need something that is pretty moisturizing while not being too heavy. While this foundation seems thick at first it thins out really well while still giving me the coverage I need. I also love that this foundation is not orange. I seem to have a problem finding products that are in my shade but that do not turn my skin funky colors, so I was very happy with this foundation!

Here is what my face looks like without these two products:


Here’s what they look like with them:


I love the way these two products come together. The primer makes my skin really smooth and helps with the application of the foundation. Because of the primer I was able to stretch the foundation that much further and I could not believe how little I was using. Without the primer I would need at least twice as much foundation! Not only that but the primer helps keep your makeup intact throughout the day and makes it just that much more manageable! I hate spending hours in front of the mirror just to apply makeup and then have it wear off in a matter of minutes. So I am VERY happy with these products and will be using foundation primer from now on! 

I highly recommend these products to any girl looking for a flawless face without needing to use tons of products! You can find these and other great products from Laura Mercier on their website here.

Orly Smart Gels: Beauty Stop Online Review

Hello, my name is Amberlee and I am a gel nails addict. Luckily for you guys I have been missing my gel addicts anonymous meetings so that I can bring you a new gel review! 
ORLY

I was send some wonderful Orly Gel Nail products from Beauty Stop Online. First let me talk about Beauty Stop Online. They offer TONS of both professional and personal care products at amazing prices. It is really hard to choose even one thing from their site and you end up wanting more! They have everything from hair products and hair tools, to nail products, makeup, and salon equipment. They truly are your one stop shop for all of your beauty needs!

After a long search of their website I decided to pick some products from their Orly Gel Polish selection, and here is what I got.

I received the Orly gel remover, the gel cleanser, cuticle oil, base and top coat, and 3 different colors. First off I love how big the bottles of the cleanser and the remover are. Each come with 4oz of product while most other companies have 2oz or less. I like to use a lot of the cleanser so this is perfect for me! This is the fun part about Beauty Stop Online! If you were to purchase either bottle anywhere else you would pay $9.99 a bottle, but from BSO you pay $4.99! Which I think is a great deal!

Like I said, I use a lot of the cleanser and I don’t notice too much of a difference from other cleansers (they mostly consist of alcohol), but I fell in love with the remover. Most of the time I use acetone to remove my gel nails, but that can be really harsh on your nails and of course your cuticles! So I love that this remover is designed to specifically remove Orly Gel Nails, does not take as much time as acetone and is definitely a lot more friendly to your nails.

The received the colors Rage, It’s Up To Blue, and Star Spangled. All of these are colors that I would not normally choose, but after seeing the swatches on their website I HAD to have them! They are all very shimmery and very unique. I can honestly say that I have never seen similar colors in any other gel polish lines. From what I understand after doing some research every Orly Smart Gels Polish is made to resemble a regular Orly counterpart. So if you have a favorite Orly Polish that you can’t live without, now you can have long lasting results with the Smart Gel version!

One thing that I was super excited about trying was the Smart Gels Cuticle Oil. My cuticles have always been a disaster area and it has only been lately that I have been on a mission to keep my nails up to par with all the other bloggers. To be honest I was a little afraid that the oil in other cuticle oils might hurt the coloring or even the seal of my gels so I just decided to not go there. When I say that Orly makes a cuticle oil just for gels to say I was excited just doesn’t cut it. I was a little worried about it being in such a small bottle, but it spreads really far and as you can see from the picture above I have barely made a dent in it. I love the way it smells and I love even more the way it soothes and protects my cuticles!

I normally don’t like to wear red unless it is during the holidays. There has been very few reds that I have actually enjoyed wearing. After seeing Orly’s Star Spangled I was in love! I don’t think I have ever gotten more comments on a solid color manicure in years! Here is what I am talking about:

Indoors

In the light

In the light at a different angle

These pictures don’t really do this color justice! I tried to take different angled pictures to show you how much this polish sparkled in the light, but the angles that sparkled the most would show up as a solid color on camera. This is by far the most beautiful red I have ever worn and I will definitely be showing off this color again very soon!

Next is another color that I do not normally wear but was enchanted by. It’s Up To Blue is described as a light blue, which to a certain extent is true but to me it is more of a bright blue than a light blue. Maybe you guys have a different opinion? Let me know what you think:

I had a little more luck with this color as far as showing how much it shimmers. Although I still must say that these photos do not do the color justice. The one problem I did notice about them is that they are a little opaque. In order to get full coverage with this colors I had to use three coats. The result is well worth it though! I am very impressed!

I was also impressed by the price. Each bottle of Orly Smart Gel Polish retails for $15.99 but the Base and Top Coat is $8.99 on BSO and the colors are $7.99. If I would have purchased these products elsewhere I would have paid $93.93 +tax. These products on Beauty Stop Online cost $47.93 +tax for a total savings of $46.

If you are looking for great products at even better prices you should check out Beauty Stop Online’s website here.

ToiletTree: Deluxe LED Fogless Shower Mirror: Review and Giveaway

I can’t tell you the amount of times I have tried to do my makeup in the bathroom only to be disappointed because the mirror was foggy, the bathroom was too dark, or lately there is just not enough space in front of the sink. I have tried using the little makeup mirrors that I have but the lighting in my whole house is really not that great so no matter where I go I can barely see and I am always afraid that I will end up looking like a clown! 
I recently received ToiletTree’s Deluxe LED Fogless Shower Mirror with Squeegee and I have been very impressed with both the quality and the design!

First off let me tell you about how the fogless technology works. The idea behind it is that if you keep the mirror itself the same temperature as the bathroom it won’t fog. So there is a reservoir behind the mirror that you are supposed to fill up before your shower. At first I found this to be a little strange, but after thinking about it I realized that this idea was genius. I just wish I had thought of it first!

As I said before, our house does not have very good lighting. One of my favorite features of this mirror is that you can take it off the mount and carry it around the house. I know this may sound lazy, but because of our horribly small bathroom I tend to do my makeup on the couch. I love how vibrant the light is! The light itself has two settings. You can push the button on the side once for the bright setting, twice for the low setting, and three times to turn it off again. Similar lighted mirrors that I have used in the past never seem to have enough light, so I was very impressed and happy that this one has the perfect amount of lighting!

Another thing that was great about this mirror was that it was super easy to install. It was already put together so all we had to do was add the soft silicon to the marked areas on back of the mount, press it against the wall, and after 24 hrs hang the mirror on the mount. It took about 5 minutes to get everything set up and place it on the wall. The hardest part was waiting for the soft silicon to dry. 
Hubby putting it in our shower
I think that anyone who hates trying to use a foggy bathroom mirror, or with little to no light in their bathrooms should own one of these mirrors. I was truly impressed and would recommend this to anyone looking for a great mirror! ToiletTree also offers a smaller version of this mirror without the LED lights, as well as a small travel version. So they have something for everyone!
