Get to Know: Glowology for Beautiful Skin

Hey Guys!  I want to inform you all about a really beautiful body skin care line called: Glowology. If you go to the website you will be immediately struck by the gorgeous model with perfect skin. 

The first thing that caught my attention about this line was it's very simplistic but beautiful packaging. I love the very classic blue and white stitched pattern. I tried the Sugar Mama Honey Scrub which smells absolutely delicious is very rich and a little bit goes a long way! The other product I tried was the Amazing Legs Shaving Cream. It is very rich, creamy and smooth. These are very luxurious! This duo would be a perfect holiday gift idea together as a set!

 

Here are SIX things you should know about this brand (this is taken from their website):

Target Tuesdays- Because I Love Target That Much!

Hey Guys!! I like this whole theme idea...each day of the week I can try to stick to a certain "theme". I may change it up from time to time, but for now , this works!

Since I love Target so much, and I talk about things I find all the time...I am dedicating Tuesdays to talking about great deals, or favorite products at Target! It's affordable, and convenient. 

Right now I am using a few of the products from the Frizz Ease line by John Frieda. I am hooked on the straight fixation smoothing creme. I run this through my hair when damp and it helps tame my flyaways and helps my hair look sleeker and shinier while protecting it from any heat from the blow dryer or flat-iron. The GREATEST thing is that this is only $5.99!John Frieda Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation Smoothing Creme

The other product I am really loving is the Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula. Focus this on the ends of your hair to help the ends stay moisturized and shiny. This is only $8.99!John Frieda Frizz-Ease Hair Serum, Thermal Protection Formula

The other products I haven't been going a day without are my Skintimate Shave Gel (right now I have the Mango scent and it is delicious, and my Schick Quattro TrimStyle. This razor is my new favorite...it's the best I've used! One side is a trimmer, other is a razor...LOVE it! It's the little pleasures in life. :)

EOS: Smooth and Superb!

Hey guys!! Bear had fun with the products I'll be talking about today: EOS -Evolution of Smooth shave cream and lip balms. He enjoyed watching me open the packages and had a field day chewing on the plastic/cardboard boxes.

So, I recently got these items but have been so excited to talk about them because I really think if you haven't heard of EOS -Evolution of Smooth , you should! EOS says, " We want lip balm whose feel and packaging makes us smile, shaving cream that leaves our legs smooth and moisturized, and natural body lotion that makes our skin oh-so-touchable."

 First, I want to tell you about EOS' "ultra moisturizing shave cream." I got the purple lavender jasmine scent. There are 6 different fragrances of this shave cream and each different fragrance has a different color bottle. Here are 2 pictures of mine:

So, as you can see, the lavender jasmine is a purplish color. Not only is the packaging cute and colorful but it is silky soft. I don't know what the material is...but it's SOFT!!! This shave cream is:

  • non foaming
  • moisturizing so you can shave wet or dry
  • Contains natural aloe,oat, shea butter, and vitamins E & C for ultra hydration and nourishment
  • bottle is soft and recyclable-won't leave rust ring in your shower

It is thick and creamy and easy to pump out! I love this stuff. I've tried other shaving creams but this has been one of my favorites! I kinda want to try every scent like pomegranate raspberry, island blue and  cucumber melon!

Next is EOS' LIP BALMS. Here are pictures of the two different ones I received:

ok, I confess...I didn't want to stop taking pictures of these EOS products. They are SO cute. The packaging is bright and SMOOTH (which is the best part).

The Pink Lip blam is called a smooth stick. It comes in 3 flavors. Mine is pomegranate raspberry. YUM. It is 95% organic and 100 % natural. This stick felt really good on my lips. No complaints. It was long-lasting and smelled really fruity. Left my lips feeling soft.

The yellow lip balm is called the smooth sphere. This one was my FAVORITE of the two. It reminded me of a little egg yolk. 

 I like the way the rounded sphere goes on your lips. Plus it is just SO adorable. Feels the same in texture as the smooth stick but I like that this little ball is so cute and unique. My flavor is the Lemon Drop which is new. I love anything lemon scented so this is wonderful. The smooth sphere comes in 4 other flavors. ALL DELICIOUS! I want to try them all.

You can find EOS products on their website at www.evolutionofsmooth.com or you can find these products in Target, Ulta or Walgreens.

Love these products! I really believe that cosmetics and personal care items should have cute packaging. It really makes someone want to carry them around in their purse or have displayed in their bathrooms.

Disclaimer: I did receive these products free from EOS on a review basis. But, I always give honest feedback. I was not paid for this blog post.

Here are some other photos of Bear and the products!!! He loved hanging out with me when I was playing with these.

Isn't he a good model?????

ok, I promise I will post the winner of my contest tonight!! Have a lovely day everyone.

Billy Jealousy for Men & Women

My husband was excited when a package came in the mail from "Billy Jealousy". Billy Jealousy products are known to win awards and be featured in magazines like, Esquire, Men's Health, FHM and Cleo. And one of the products I received, the HYDROSLICK super slick shave cream won the Esquire magazine award for best shave cream in 2007. In Minnesota, Billy Jealousy is sold in ULTA stores and in exclusive salons. But, these products are sold everywhere from L.A to NY.

I received the:

  • LIQUIDSAND- exfoliating facial cleanser
  • HYDROPLANE-super-slick shave cream &
  • GOLDEN GLOVES-theraputic hand cream

The Billy Jealousy Packaging is very clean looking and simple and has a dragon logo on everything.

I like that all the bottles were white and had only a little color on them. I also liked that the bottles nossle was upside down so they were PERFECT for keeping in the shower for easy dispensing.

First I tried the LIQUIDSAND exfoliating facial scrub.

I've tried many exfoliating facial scrubs but this could be one of my favorites. What I like about it is that it's not ONLY and exfoliator , it has the consistency thick enough to be a face wash . It feels like you are really cleaning your face when you use it...and the small sand like exfoliators inside really help buff your skin but is gentle enough to use everyday.   **I try LOTS of products, and this one has stayed in my shower because I just don't want to use anything else.

The other AMAZING product is the HYDROPLANE super-slick shave cream. A-MAZING!!!!!!!! I have never used shaving cream better than this. It's definitely more expensive than shaving cream you'd get at TARGET but, it's so much better.

It get's SO close to my skin and doesn't irritate it at all. My skin is SO soft after. The other thing I LOVE about this stuff is it does not suds up..so it's not foamy. It is just solid clear cream that you put on and shave off. :-) I love this stuff...and my HUSBAND LOVES IT TOO.

Lastly I tried GOLDEN GLOVES therapeutic hand cream

As a makeup artist, I constantly use my hands. And, almost everyday I want to put lotion on because my hands are so dry. This GOLDEN GLOVES hand cream is going with me to work. It's just a solid white color, no significant fragrance, light and immediately sinks into skin. It is not greasy or sticky. (That means it's a definite winner!)

All of these 3 products are in the $20's. But they are definitely worth it if you want REALLY good skin care. I think men love them because they do not have significant fragrances...and woman love these products because they GET THE JOB DONE!

You can find these products at www.billyjealousy.com
