"Plus, those labels can lure the most skeptical among us with their claims. Guarantees to give you touchable body and Beyoncé-like volume with just one wash. Promises to transform your dead ends into healthy hair instantly. It's enough to make you pop open the bottle. And then you're a goner -- the sweet scent of ripe apples or fresh rosemary inspires you to take it with you to the checkout counter."
"While the pretty packaging and bold claims work a lot of magic, how do you really know which conditioner will actually deliver? Typically, you don't. You just have to buy the bottle and hope for the best -- until now. Now you have these TotalBeauty.com reader reviews to tell you which bottles live up to their flashy promises -- and which are nothing more than a delicious scent." From Total Beauty.com

"It made us think way back to Alexander Wang's spring 2010 collection -- aka the most blatant example of a runway beauty look immediately making a cameo in real life. The models paraded down the catwalk wearing long, rope-like side braids, and the very next day half the women at Fashion Week were wearing their hair the same way." From Total Beauty.com

For many of us who ate more and exercised less over the winter, springtime becomes our time to lose that unwanted weight so that we can look amazing in our new warm weather clothes. The problem is that losing that extra weight isn't as easy of a task as it was putting the weight on was (unfair, I know!). So this is why it is a great idea to get yourself started of a weight loss program that will help keep you on track for your weight loss goals. If you are thinking about starting a weight loss program you might want to take a look at the Meizitang site which offers diet news and information that may help you on your weight loss journey.
Losing weight can make you look and feel amazing as well as helping to keep our bodies healthy. But if you are like many people and you have difficulty reaching or maintaining your weight loss goals even with exercise and diets then dietary supplements may offer you some needed assistance. Weight loss supplements may help to increase fat metabolism as well as decease the body's absorption of fatty acids in the intestines which may lead to weight loss. Of course you MUST consult your physician before taking any supplements or starting a weight loss program. However, if you are interested in weight loss supplements you might want to do your research and check out Botanical Slimming for more information. Please let me know what you think.

"As it turns out, not much. For all their wealth and pelf and fame, stars have skin problems too. (I know -- I've seen an A-lister actually apologize to her makeup artist for breaking out. Such a fun moment!) They also get dull and flaky skin, broken blood vessels, scars, and all those other pesky imperfections, just like the rest of us."
"The difference is that while they have access to teams of beauty pros who can erase the evidence and transform them into radiant goddesses, we are left to our own devices -- and, in today's case anyway, some valuable secrets I managed to eke out of a few top-notch beauty teams."
"From how to clean your face to what you put in your body, here are my favorite pro tips on getting, maintaining, enhancing, and even faking your way to a gorgeous glow. I use them all the time, and now you're going to want to use them, too." From Total Beauty.com

"While I have dozens of eyeshadow colors in my makeup kit, the only ones I ever make a dent in are blacks and grays. I start with black along my lashline, medium gray in the crease, and pale gray closest to my brows -- and if I'm feeling particularly adventurous, I'll throw on some falsies. Sure, it gets the job done, but I've decided it's finally time to try something new." From Total Beauty.com

"The craze started in Asia, and at least a dozen brands have launched a BB cream in the States over the last year -- with many more to come. BB stands for "Beauty Balm" or "Blemish Balm" depending on the formula, and they're basically tinted moisturizers with skin care ingredients and SPF built in."
"Although everyone from salespeople to journalists is touting them as all-in-one miracle creams, we wouldn't go that far. "It's marketing," says Washington D.C.-based dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi. "There's nothing magical about a BB cream -- but if you're looking for a new tinted moisturizer, why not try one of these?" So that's exactly how we're categorizing them: tinted moisturizers -- with benefits." From Total Beauty.com

I visited the Sleep Masks Direct.com website and I came across a wealth of useful information that helped me better understand how essential a sleeping mask is for a peaceful night's rest. The website also discusses all the different types and uses of sleeping masks, many of which I never heard of. Below are a few of the things I learned from the website.
A sleeping mask will help to block out the sleep disturbing light that may interrupt your night's rest therefore causing you look and feel tired in the morning. There's nothing worse then when you are in a deep sleep and then you are unexpectedly awakened by a light. Whether it is early morning light,a nightlight in your bedroom or bathroom or an outdoor street lamp light that isn't completely blocked by your shades, regardless of the source, the light can wake you out of your sleep. Many people who wear sleeping masks find that they fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer therefore improving the quality of the sleep. Sleeping masks are also great for people who travel long distances by plane or train and find it difficult to fall asleep. Light blocking sleeping masks are perfect for creating a quite and peaceful environment that is optimal for sleep. Sleeping masks are also great for the power napper because it instantly darkens your environment so that you fall asleep fast and get the most out of your nap.

I would be lying if I said that the photo of Faith Hill didn't make me feel a little bit better about myself. Not because I get pleasure out of seeing beautiful women looking bad. But rather it makes me realize that all women, yes, even the super gorgeous ones as well as regular women like myself can't be beautiful 24/7. So, lesson learned. I'll try not to be so hard and demanding on myself in the future. On the flip side though, Faith Hill does look totally different without her makeup on and this photo was a surprise to me. It is amazing what talented hair and makeup artists can do. Please let me know what you think about the Faith Hill photo without makeup on. Till then! B.

If you are looking for a shampoo with a scent that's soooo yummy, it's addicting then I believe you will love the L'Oreal EverCreme Nourishing Shampoo. But what I found was that the EverCreme Shampoo did not remove the dirt, oils and product build-up from my strands as well my EverPure Shampoo does. Keep in mind that my hair is far from being "pure and untouched", I do over-indulge in hair styling products. So, I need a shampoo that is able to remove tough styling products. I found that the EverCreme Nourishing Shampoo does a great job at softening my hair but it wasn't as tough at removing product build-up like I need it to be. I did find however that this line worked well for my daughters' "unabused" hair. The EverCreme Nourishing Shampoo left their hair silky, soft, and full of body so they are very happy with this line. Check it out for yourself and let me know if you agree with my opinion or am I totally wrong on this one. Till then! B.

Hush Puppies Slippers. I love these slippers! I wear them all around the house while I am cooking, cleaning, relaxing and I even keep them on when I run outdoors to get the mail or walk the dog. I found that whether I am wearing them around the house or out for a stroll, these slippers keep my feet in a constant state of total comfort. Not only are the Hush Puppies warm, and therapeutic for tired feet but they also look great on. They come in a cute flip flop style, "Willow" or clog style "Ginger"(which is the one I have) both feature a "soft comfy micro-terry foot bed" for the ultimate state of comfort. The Hush Puppies slippers are fashionable, versatile and can be worn all year long. Please check them out for yourself and let me know what you think. Till then! B.

"The problem is energy zappers -- the drains on our bodies and minds that make us feel like we're running out of steam and like our health is in jeopardy. And, as if feeling like you're moving at half-speed isn't bad enough, that energy void is often telegraphed by your appearance: dull skin, under-eye circles, lifeless hair -- you get the picture. It's like wearing a giant sandwich board that says "Will Work for Pep.""
"But there are some surprising drains out there that may also be taking their toll on you and your health. To help figure out what they are (and what can be done to avoid them), we spoke with celebrity nutritionist Paula Simpson, which is a good thing because, as they say, knowledge is power and once you know what forces are working to wear you down, maybe you can do something to reclaim that lost energy."

Well thankfully I figured out what was missing from my makeup routine and now I am back to using my Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer and my pores and fine lines are back to being "blurred" away and my complexion looks great again.

"Actually, yes, there is. Enter lip plumpers."
"A good lip plumper can subtly add shape and volume to your lips without making you look like you got punched in the kisser. A bad lip plumper, on the other hand, can leave you with red, flaky, burning lips."
"So admittedly, even with non-surgical lip plumpers, there's a bit of risk involved. That's why we had our most courageous readers review hundreds of lip plumping products to find the best and the worst. Read on to find out which ones are worthy of your pucker -- and which ones to pass up." From Total Beauty.com
