10 Beauty Products to Get You Through the Flu

Sick woman on couch 10 Beauty Products to Get You Through the Flu

Hey Guys! As you all know the weather lately has been terrible and most of us have been getting all kinds of horrible colds and the flu, as a result. This is very personal for me because I work in retail and it seems like I get one disease after the other with all of my customers constantly sneezing and coughing on me while I do their makeup. So in an effort to expedite my wellness, I came up with a top ten must-haves to get better faster. Jess tested and Jess approved. LOL. Anyway, here you go in no particular order:

fresh sake bath soak 10 Beauty Products to Get You Through the Flu#1. Fresh Sake Bath Soak -  Sake Bath is a purifying soak comprised of over 50% detoxifying sake that works to ease body tension and promote relaxation while leaving the skin incredibly soft, smooth, and moisturized. The delicately foaming formula was inspired by ancient beauty rituals of Japanese Geisha who were known to use sake to purify and soften their skin, and its luxurious lush scent comes from their tradition of infusing baths with real persimmons. On a personal note, I can literally feel the ick leaving my body when I soak in this. It’s a must have.

Top 10 Beauty Products for Spring

woman shopping springtime beauty makeup Top 10 Beauty Products for SpringHey guys!  I know it’s cold outside, but with warmer weather right around the corner, I wanted to give you all a taste of my top ten favorite products for spring so you can all be prepared to strut into the new season looking and feeling your very best!

Here they are in no particular order (I love them all equally!!!).

Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Top 10 Beauty Products for SpringLaura Mercier Bonne Mine Healthy Glow for Face and Cheeks: I absolutely love this palette! The colors are beautiful and natural, giving you a natural flush and glow into your face. When swatched onto my skin, the colors came out much brighter. The bronzer was great as a contour – so apply this underneath the cheekbones, nape of the neck, just along the jaw line and the temples of your forehead. My favorites were definitely the glow veils; they looked great as a highlighter for the inner corners of my eyes, just above the cupids bow of my lip, along the cheekbones and brow bones. Side note: I also used both cheek veils as lipstick because they are quite matte with no shimmer, so it gives your lips a natural pouty color. Also don’t be afraid to blend with your fingers as it melts the product and makes it easier to work with. Recommendations: I would recommend this palette for anyone, it’s easy to use and the colors will resonate well on both light and dark skin (as it is a highlighter). I – for one – love cream blushers and highlighter. All-in-all, this was a great buy.

caudalie vinoperfect radiance serum Top 10 Beauty Products for Spring

Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum: This satiny serum is a remarkable formula for smoother, brighter-looking skin. Vinoperfect boosts the complexion’s radiance and appearance. Your skin is moisturized and your complexion looks even, luminous and beautifully radiant. Benefits: Enhances radiance, tone and clarity. Recommended for: All skin types. For those of you who are sensitive also, the formula is paraben-free!


cerave moisturizing cream Top 10 Beauty Products for SpringCeraVe Moisturizing Cream: CeraVe was developed by dermatologists and uses a patented formulation that provides a protective barrier on the skin’s surface. This special formulation, called Multivesicular Emulsion, ensures the moisturizer will be time-released throughout the day for complete hydration. CeraVe also uses Ceramides which help the skin to retain water. This is especially good for those with extremely dry skin or skin that dries out half way through the day. One application will last the entire day. CevaVe Moisturizing Cream is fragrance-free, so it’s great for those who are sensitive to fragrance in their skin care products. This product is an all over body moisturizer; you can use it on your face as well as the rest of your body. I know that many of you may shudder at the idea of putting the same cream on your face and your body, but you’ll have to trust me and try it – you won’t be disappointed.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz Top 10 Beauty Products for SpringThe Body Shop Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz: This amazing spray helps maintain normal cellular turnover & builds collagen. It contains L-ascorbic acid, which is essential for cross-linking collagen molecules, lightens and brightens skin, reduces inflammation, decreases transepidermal water loss and boosts your skin’s ability to protect itself from the sun. Wear Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz every day for a more youthful and glowing complexion. Tip: Keep this in the fridge! The cool sensation on a hot day is incredible! (more…)

Personally, I’ve found the Sochi Olympics to be underwhelming, so far. But you know what keeps me tuning in – at least on the figure skating days, anyway? Johnny Weir.

Honestly, the two-time Olympic skating champ turned commentator could be speaking Russian as he critiques the performances for NBC Sports Network. All anyone really wants to know is where they can buy his fierce fashions and accessories.

Barneys New York Love Yourself Gift Bag

Barneys Love Yourself Beauty Bag Gift With Purchase 2014 Barneys New York Love Yourself Gift BagDon’t you just love gifts with purchase and beauty minis? Some of my favorite product discoveries have been items I happened upon because they were a gift with purchase or some kind salesperson slipped me a sample. If you like these tiny treats as much as I do, here’s a deal you won’t want to miss.

Right now through February 15, Barneys New York is hosting its latest “Love Yourself” event. With any $250 cosmetics, treatment, fragrance or apothecary purchase (including men’s fragrance and grooming), you’ll receive a gift bag full of goodies from Barneys best beauty collections.

The darlings at Barneys sent me a press sample of the gift bag – and let me tell you, it’s fabulous. As a beauty expert, I’ve reviewed thousands of products and I’m familiar with most beauty brands. But there were quite a few goodies in this bag that I’d never heard of and never tried – and now I’m wondering how I lived life without them.

This promotion is valid on U.S. orders only, one bag per customer, while supplies last.

 

Which Urban Decay Naked Palette Is For You?

350 Which Urban Decay Naked Palette Is For You?

Hey All! I’m sure many of you are wondering, with this new Urban Decay Naked 3 palette release, if it’s right for you – or if you if you’re a UD Naked palettes newbie, which one is a good fit.  As this is their third palette in the Naked series, I feel like it’s pretty important to understand how this one compares to the previously released Naked and Naked 2 palettes. Naked 3 has an overall rose gold theme with 12 eyeshadows in a pretty, wave-textured tin case.

Urban Decay Naked Palettes Which Urban Decay Naked Palette Is For You?

Each palette has 12 shadows, generally flowing from light to dark. The current selling palettes all come with a synthetic eyeshadow brush. Generally speaking, Naked has mostly warm neutrals, Naked 2 is in the neutral-to-taupe range with more drastic light and dark shadows, and Naked 3 is distinctly more pink with a lot of mid-to-light shades. Naked 3 has no copycat shadows in any other collection, which is nice for you palette hoarders out there (you know who you are!) who don’t want dupes.

So let’s break it down: (more…)
