L'OREAL EVERSTRONG SULFATE-FREE FORTIFY SYSTEM

LOREAL EVERSTRONG SULFATE-FREE FORTIFY SYSTEM


"DO" OVER!
Start 2010 anew.  Time to renew your tired looking "Do"! If you are like me, then 2009 has been nothing less than harsh on your hair.  I know that I flat ironed, blew dry and bleached (highlights) my hair way too much! But lets not dwell on the past, it's time to look forward to a year of stronger, healthier locks!  I was asked by Brand Building Communications to try out some of the newest hair products from L'Oreal and then report my findings.  I received products from the Everstrong Sulfate-Free Haircare line which includes the Shampoo, Conditioner, Overnight Repair Treatment and the Deep Replenishing Masque.

STRENGTH TRAINING FOR YOUR HAIR
Thanks to my genes, I was born with "wimpy" hair.  I have the kind of hair that requires much TLC.  It needs something for moisture, volume, texture and strength (no wonder why my bathroom closet is busting at the hinges!).  For this reason is why I love using the L'Oreal Everstrong System.  The shampoo and conditioner are sulfate-free which is just what the "doctor"(hair dresser) ordered for colored hair like mine. I found that my hair was soft, manageable and I had less breakage after using the shampoo and conditioner.  My ends were less brittle and my hair had more resilience especially when it came to brushing and blow drying my hair. I also enjoyed the creamy consistency of the shampoo and conditioner which have a wonderful "minty " aroma to them.

TREAT ME RIGHT!
The L'Oreal Everstrong Sulfate-Free Fortify System also offers a Deep Replenishing Masque which delivers an intense nourishing treatment for your tresses.  I left this masque on for 3 minutes. The directions say you can leave it on for 3-5 minutes but I find that with my fine hair (and I don't mean "fine" in a good way) 5 minutes was just a little too long for my hair type.  After "unmasking" my hair it was shiny, smooth, soft and it was definitely in better shape!  I like to use this hair masque once a week to keep my tresses in tip top shape!

OVERNIGHT RETREAT
The last product that I tried out was the L'Oreal Everstrong Overnight Repair Treatment (love it!).  This really is a treat for your strands!  You simply apply 1-2 pumps of this cream to your dry hair before you go to bed at night ( I paid special attention to my ends).  I have forced hot air heat in my home and there is a vent right over my bed.  So, all night long the heat blows on my hair, drying it out and making it brittle.  I found that by using this hair treatment my hair was soft, hydrated and my ends were not crunchy and brittle the next morning!

HAPPY ENDINGS
Not only am I happy with The L'Oreal Everstrong System but my hair (especially my ends) have never been happier or healthier looking!  Please let me know what you think.  Till then! B.

JOHN ALLAN'S SKINCARE

JOHN ALLAN'S


Got a guy in your life that loves to look his best but because he is a "man" he won't use any "girlie beauty products"?  Well, I think I may have solved your problem.. I was asked by John Allan's, who is a company that specializes in men's grooming products, ( I was careful not to say the word "beauty") to try out some of their products.  They sent me a wonderful assortment of  guy friendly grooming products.  So, in order to give a fair evaluation of their line, I had my own special guy do the testing and he was to report his findings to me.  I have to admit that I did try out a few products myself.  I can't help myself when it comes to beauty, I mean grooming products! Here's what he found.

SHAVING GETS A (MANLY) MAKEOVER!
My guy has the typical shaving routine, wet your face, lather up with some plain ,old, dry out your skin shaving cream, then drag a razor over his rough face, rinse and then patch up any razor nicks (sounds painful!).However, since using the John Allan's line he has changed his shaving routine for the better! First he preps his skin with the Slick Water Pre-Shave Solution. He found that this product created a "slick" surface on his skin which allowed the razor to glide over rather than drag across his face.  He also found that his skin was less irritated and razor nicks were eliminated.  Next, he applied the John Allan's Shave Slick Conditioning Cream (shaving cream). He loved that he was able to get a clean close shave and that his skin irritation was minimized.  After shaving he finished off with John Allan's Splash Cooling After Shave which soothed and conditioned his newly shaved face and he loved the scent!

NOT SO ROUGH ANYMORE, ARE YOU?
Skincare, I know it's not a word my husband usually uses but it is now.  For his nightly skincare routine he used the John Allan's Scrub Exfoliating Face Cleanser. I never thought my husband would ever use a facial scrub and love it as much as he did with this one! After cleansing he followed up with the Replenishing Moisturizer, he says that his skin was soft, smooth and healthy looking and I would have to agree!.

In keeping with his "skincare routine", next he tried the Bodywash Moisturizing Cleansing Gel which left his skin with a nice clean feeling and scent.  He also loved how nice and soft his skin was, especially important for those of use who experiencing a very cold and dry Winter!

Finally, my husband tried the Ocean Daily Nourishing Shampoo and Mint Invigorating Conditioner.  In his opinion his hair looked and felt healthy, shiny and clean, Oh, and I forgot to mention that he loved the scent (who knew scent was so important to a guy when it came to grooming products.)!

HE SAYS, SHE SAYS
My husband says that he loves the John Allan's Skincare and Grooming Line.  It keeps him looking great and still allows him to stay "manly" while grooming. I say that I think he looks so handsome and I love how soft his face and body are.  He looks like a million bucks to me!!!
Please let me know what you think.  Till then! B.

URBAN DECAY MATTE EYESHADOW

URBAN DECAY MATTE EYESHADOW


I hope that everyone had a GREAT Holiday.  Did you eat more than you should have like me? I spent these last few days with friends, family and of course food, but now I am ready to get back to work!

EYE GOT A PROBLEM!
Christmas Eve night, right before my company came over , in all my Holiday rush, I accidentally knocked over my "absolutely need, can't pull off my Holiday look without" eyeshadows on to the bathroom floor. There scattered all over the floor, into a million (maybe even 2 million) tiny little pieces was my "go-to" eyeshadow.  I cannot even tell you how much of a gigantic mess I had on  my hands! And to make matters worse, I hadn't applied my eyeshadow yet! So now what's a girl to do?  Desperate times call for desperate measures.  I snuck into my Christmas surprise from my husband (I know it was a bad thing to do!) and used the eyeshadows he bought for me. A few weeks before Christmas I picked out a few Urban Decay Eyeshadows I wanted from Sephora and he was going to "surprise" me with them.

MATTE WORK
Why I love the Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow is because it delivers a smooth, beautiful dose of color to my eyes! I love using a black or nearly black eyeshadow as my eyeliner.  I like that it gives my eyes a nice, soft, smoky look.  I used the Urban Decay Matte Eyeshadow in Perversion to achieve this look.  I found that these matte eyeshadows will not crease and the color will stay put where you place it.  I love that the texture of this shadow is ultra-soft  and velvety which makes application a snap. It blends easily and I had no "sprinkles" of eyeshadow all over my face, it goes only where you want it to.

Please let me know what you think.  Till then! B.

L'OREAL ELNETT SATIN HAIRSPRAY

L'OREAL ELNETT SATIN HAIRSPRAY


WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE HELD?
Looking for a great, inexpensive hairspray to hold your "Holiday Hairdo" in place AND  one that will easily comb out?  I was asked by Brand Building Communications to "road test" the latest hairspray from L'Oreal called Elnett Satin and give my honest opinion about its performance. Here's what I found.

YOU ARE SOOO FINE!
L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray has been used by many "celeb stylists" ( I did my own research) to help create some of those fabulous hairstyles that we all love.  Why some professionals like to use this hairspray is probably because it delivers a very fine mist of strong hold hairspray that won't weight down the celebs newly done "do's".  And even if the hair needs to be retouched, this hairspray easily brushes out without leaving behind stickiness or even worse, the dry flakes of hairspray.  Hair is left silky and is as soft as "satin". This is exactly what I found when I tried out this hairspray and believe me, my hair has very discriminating taste ( I have fine hair so, I doesn't take much to flatten it out!). I also liked that the Elnett Satin Hairspray held my coif in place but it also allowed my hair to still have "movement' (very natural looking).

SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE
I think that the L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray is a great bargain.  You get the same great hold and soft touch of the more expensive brands but at better price.  It is a little bit more expensive than the "cheapy" hairsprays but it is well worth the price ( about $14).  My only "nit pick" ( I told you I would give my honest opinion) is that the scent of the hairspray is a little "old".  I wish that it had more of a "fresh scent" but truthfully the scent wears off pretty quickly and you won't smell it after you are all finished getting ready.
Please let me know what you think.  Till then! B.

BARBAR ECO-8000 BLOW DRYER

BARBAR ECO-8000 BLOW DRYER

OH, "GREEN-UP" ALREADY!
Want a simple way to look great and help out the environment without having to sacrifice on style and convenience? Then I've got what you've been looking for (did that sound too "salesperson-ish"? Sorry!).The hair care professionals at BarBar Hair Care Tools wanted to spread the exciting news about their new "Eco- Friendly" blow dryer and sent me one to test out for myself.  I knew that BarBar has long been the gold standard when it comes to hair styling tools so, I was very excited to try this blow dryer out!

MAKE YOUR FRIENDS "GREEN"WITH ENVY
What sets the BarBar Eco-8000 blow dryer apart from traditional blow dryers is that it actually gives you the SAME amount of "blow drying power" but it uses and wastes less electricity than other "non-eco friendly" blow dryers. I also found that because this dryer uses a ceramic heating element it takes much less time to dry my hair. Less time using electricity and wasted energy equals a happier Mother Earth (and a happier electric bill!).

YOU BLOW ME AWAY!
Now let's get to my favorite part of this blow dryer, it makes my hair look AMAZING! I love that by using the BarBar Eco-8000 blow dryer I am wasting less energy but the vane side of me can't help but be impressed with what it does for my hair! This blow dryer comes with 2 powerful speed settings, 3 heat settings (high, low and no heat) and lastly, you can blast your strands with the "cool shot" for added shine and elimination of frizz . My fragile, color treated hair really loves having the "no heat" option.  I use this option when I am almost done drying my hair, it saves my strands from becoming over cooked and dried out. It's like air drying your hair with a little wind gust.  My hair is soft, smooth and very well behaved, which is nothing short of a miracle for my hair especially for this time of year!

GO GREEN AND LOOK GREAT DOING IT!
Every girl or guy should have a GREAT blow dryer like the BarBar Eco-8000 in their "beauty war chest". The results will amaze you!  It is a great gift to give to the "greenie" in your life who wants to better the environment or their electric bill.  Give it to that special, hair obsessed person in your life who just wants to have great, healthy looking hair. Or better yet give it to yourself!

SENSA WEIGHT-LOSS PROGRAM

SENSA WEIGHT-LOSS PROGRAM

TIS THE SEASON TO GET CHUBBY. FA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA!
Ahh the Holidays! The fun, friends, festivities and the FOOD (my personal favorite part to the season)! But once the parties are gone what are you left with? I'll tell you, regret!  Regret that you ate all the food that you did.  Most of us experience that "post holiday pudge", you know when your pants fit a little too snug and you end up wearing yoga pants for the few weeks. So, how do we fix the " pudge problem"?  We make a New Year's resolution to lose the weight and hopefully not repeat our over-eating mistakes again next year. I go through this EVERY  year, you'd figure I would have learned my lesson by now!  My only saving grace is that I exercise on a regular basis but even that won't totally prevent all Holiday weight gain.

I WOULD LIKE TO WEIGHT IN ON THIS!
Someone over at RocketXL must have know about my Holiday battle with the pudge because a few months ago I was asked to try out  The Sensa Weight -Loss System.  This system is a very simple and easy way to curb your appetite. All you need to do is sprinkle Sensa evenly over the entire surface of the food you normally eat, breakfast ,lunch, dinner and snacks.  It comes in a convenient, compact package that easily fits into your purse or lunch bag so you can be sure to have it with you every time you are eating. Each Sensa package has a sweet side and a salty side (just like me!) so, depending on what you are eating you sprinkle your food with the appropriate powder.

I found that the Sensa did not change the flavor of my food , which is VERY important and it seemed to have a curbing effect on my appetite.  Because I was eating less during my "normal" day I was able to enjoy myself during the Holiday parties.  I felt I was able to eat what I wanted without the dreaded over-stuffing of myself .  And yes, I did "sprinkle" my food at the parties.  I found that while using the Sensa program I was able to enjoy all the wonderful flavors of the season and still look great after all the festivities!
For more helpful information on The Sensa Weight-Loss Program click here.

Remember that this review reflects only my personal experience with the Sensa program and your experience and results may differ.  Additionally, my use of this product is not a recommendation or an endorsement as to its use or suitability, and as with any weight loss or health product you should always seek counsel from your health care provider before engaging in such use.

HERSTYLER VITAMIN E HAIR SERUM

Sarah Jessica Parker filming scenes for the sequel film to Sex And The City
MALL HAIR
I was at the mall this weekend doing some Christmas shopping when I came across a stand that was selling products from HerStyler.  Of course like everyone else I was in a HUGE rush so, when the salesperson approached me to try out some of their products, I truly didn't have the time to.  But the sales person was very nice and understanding and asked if I would at least try their hair serum ( my hair must have looked like it was in dire need of help!). So, I took the samples she gave me and went on my way. 

FRIZZ-BALL
Sunday my hair was a mess!  I think all the "fuzziness" that I am experiencing is due to the cold outside air and the dry, hot indoors air. Anyway, I tried out the HerStyler Vitamin E Hair Serum, I first applied some to my hair after washing it and then I used a tiny bit before and after using the hot iron.  I could not believe the difference in my hair!  My hair was smooth,  my fly-aways were in control and all that ugly "fuzziness" was gone.  I have fine hair and sometimes "serums" can weigh my hair down, not the case with the Herstyler Vitamin E Hair Serum!  I went to their website and found that the hair serum costs $49.50, a wee bit more than I usually send on this type of product. (I am currently using the Bumble & Bumble Defrizz ). But I figure that $50 is worth spending if it can keep the "fuzzies" away!

PHYSICIANS FORMULA EYE DEFINER FELT-TIP EYE MARKER

PHYSICIANS FORMULA EYE DEFINER FELT-TIP EYE MARKER


GIRLS CAN BE SO CATTY!
Looking to achieve the purr-fect cat-eye this season? I know I am!  I love the look of a bold ,well defined eye. For my "cat eye" ( no, that's NOT me in the above photo, too bad for me!) I apply liner just to my upper lids and then extend a small, upward sweep of eyeliner just past the outer corners of my eyes.  I think the "cat-eye" makes eyes look bigger, brighter and it creates the illusion of an almond shaped eye (sexy and exotic!) However, I have found that using a liquid eyeliner works best to achieve this look but sadly, I do not exactly have the steadiest hands around.  So, I took some good advice from Lucky Magazine and I tried using the Physicians Formula Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye-Marker  to create my "cat-eye".

THE CAT'S MEOW
The Physicians Formula eyeliner goes on super smooth, delivers a well defined line for your eyes and even me with my "shaky " hands was able to apply a straight, even line for my beautiful "cat eyes".  I also like that the Physician's Formula  Eye Definer stayed in place all day long, no smudging or running!
