I really like this scrub. The beads gently exfoliate yet the cleanser is still nice and creamy and leaves my dry skin feeling moisturized instead of tight. This is a great cleanser at a fabulous price.

Great lashes with awesome staying power!
If you're looking for something a bit more dramatic for an evening look, but aren't looking to spend a lot of money, then false eyelashes are the perfect way to amp up your look for only a couple of bucks! If you're like me, then false eyelashes may tend to scare you, after all, how in the world do you even apply those things?! I've tried a few in my day but hate when people say to me, are you wearing fake eyelashes?" So I have to admit, I haven't warn any in years because I feel like I just get called out on my "fakeness" when I wear them. Enter Andrea Lashes... I got four pair to try out from the lovely ladies of Andrea Lashes, and couldn't wait to see if my feelings about false eyelashes had changed. The first pair I got to try out were the #45. I trimmed a bit at the end of both lashes to get a better horizontal fit. I applied a dot of glue to my hand, ran the lashes through the glue and waited about 30 seconds for the glue to get a bit tacky before applying. I then applied and was surprised how easy they attached to my eyelashes. I had to adjust them a bit to get them to line up as closely to my lash line as possible but it went surprisingly fast! I then added some black liner to the inside of my upper eyelashes to make the lash line appear more smooth. I loved the look right away. These lashes were fun. They are certainly a bit more dramatic and look a little more on the false line, but I had fun with these anyway. I actually wore them all day to do yard work of all things, then into the evening for dinner and movie with my husband. I wanted to test the staying power. I was happily amused to see that the lashes lasted all day and all evening without budging. They held on tightly and the corners didn't come up at all like I've had happen with other lashes in the past.

I've been using this for about a month now and have noticed my sun spots on my forehead beginning to fade, and my skin tone looks more even. I really love the scent of this serum. It smells like sweet syrup.. Love it. I also like how smoothly and easily the product goes on. Its not thick and a little goes a long way, but it leaves my dry skin feeling a bit more moisturized instead of being tight.

Great moisturizing product!
I got this in pomegranite and love it. Its super thick and creamy and great for my dry skin. The scent is also fabulous. I like to use this both day and night during the winter months to keep my skin soft and supple.

My Zeno Line Rewind
My Zeno Line Rewind is a great tool used to help with wrinkle reduction. This little device heats up, vibrates, and uses red light technology to help smooth out fine lines, similar to what you would find in your Dermatologist's office. It comes with a serum enriched in antioxidant Resveratrol and Peptide Complex to help the device smooth away fine lines. You put about a quarter size amount of serum on your face and then use the device to massage the serum into your skin by gently rubbing in small circles. This process is done after washing your face and only take about 4-5 minutes. I am very excited about this technology and couldn't wait to try it. I found it easy to use although it doesn't always move as smoothly on your face, I felt like I had to keep applying the serum. I did like how it felt, it was quite soothing and the heat was not uncomfortable at all. I do wish the on/off button was not so sensitive and right in the center of the device. I keep accidentally turning it on in my cabinet when I'm moving things around to look for something. I noticed after using it that my face was a little bit red but this only lasted a few minutes. I love how well the product seeped into my skin. It helped my dry skin feel super soft and supple, and very moisturized. I have a few small lines and haven't noticed much of a difference yet, but I have only had this neat little gadget for about a month, so I plan on continuing to use it. The only downfall with this product is that it comes with a small tube of serum so it may add up when you have to keep replacing the serum. I couldn't find on their website how much replacement tubes are. The My Zeno Line Rewind costs $39.00. If you are really into beauty tech gadgets like I am, then I'm sure you'll love this. If anything, it gives that little extra boost of relaxation, which I always love.

I tend to get one or two zits here, usually around that wondeful time of the month, lol, so I wanted to give this a try. I had a zit break out for a few days so right in the middle of it, when it was at its biggest and reddest, I decided to give the My Zeno Hot Spot a try. I held it up against the zit until it beeped that it was done. I coul feel the heat but it didn't get too hot where it felt uncomfortable. When I pulled it away from my face, I was amazed to see the reddness was already gone and the zit seemed a bit smaller! It was already WAY less noticeable. Today it barely feels like my zit is there at all and it is still just barely red. I am very pleased with this little device and I'm sure when it dies, I will be buying a new one. I plan on using it every time a zit pops up!

Great for dry, dull hair!
My hair is super dry and dull, so I'm always on the lookout for a good product to moisturize it and give it shine. I like to do hair masks regularly but find they can be a bit time consuming. Oils are great because you can quickly apply it to your hair, and more often than a mask. Mizani's supreme oil goes on nice and smoothly, and didn't make my hair feel weighed down. I noticed extra shine immediately, and it made my dry hair seem a bit more moisturized. I used it in conjunction with my hair mask one of the days and was shocked at how good my hair looked and felt. My hair was super soft and moisturized, and looked very shiny! Mizani Supreme oil is 99% natural, made with argon oil, sesame, jojoba, avocado, olive fruit, sunflower, and apricot. It does not have silicone, parabens, or mineral oil. I really liked this product and will continue to use it. I love how easy it is to apply and how quickly I see results. Argon oil is great for skin and hair and I love that Mizani's Supreme Oil contains argon oil.

Don't waste your money!
The Jessica Simpson Hairdo extensions comes as one big extension you apply to the bottom half of your head. You put the bottom half of your hair up into pin curls and try to smooth them out flat so they can be tucked into the extension. Although the extension was the closest I could find to my hair color, it didn't match. It was totally obvious it was an extension. I found the extension hard to place and hard to wrap around the bottom half of my hair. I didn't think it looked flat once it was on either. It was also difficult to take off. The clips stayed in well but were hard to get out. I also found it to be heavy and would probably not want to wear it for very long. For around $200 for this, I was very dissappointed.

This daily glow pad is AMAZING! I tried this yesterday morning for the fist time and was truly amazed when I noticed how glowing my face was last night! This pad is very simple to use. Its basically a wet wipe you smooth on your face in small circles. The more you use, the darker the tan. I used it for about a minute and took my time to use up most of the liquid on the cloth. Before bed last night I went to look in the mirror, and WOW! My face was glowing! It had a nice tan! I swear the glow made my fine lines and sun spots look like they had vanished too! I have used plenty of self tanners over the years but have never had such an amazing result as this! The pad was so simple to use and after about 12 hours, my face was truly glowing! It looked so good this morning I didn't want to put on foundation to cover it up. I thought my skin looked perfect au naturale thanks to this wonderful product! I will continue to use this product and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a natural tan with the perfect glow!

I had never tried a brazilian peel before so I wasn't sure quite what to expect. The only peel I've ever used is Dr. Gross's Chemical Peel, and have only used that once so I don't have much experience in the way of peels. The packaging for the product is very nice. I thought the syringe was kind of weird, but honestly fun to use. It was easy to open and apply and the directions were very easy to read and understand. Once applied to the palm of your hand you mix with two fingers until it becomes warm, then quickly apply to your face evenly, staring with your forehead and working your way down to your neck. It is then left on for ten minutes. I felt my face start to get dry and tight towards the end but it wasn't uncomfortable at all, just felt a little weird. I rinsed it off with cold water afterwards and it turns into a slimy paste and comes right off your face. Afterwards my skin didn't feel dry or irritated at all. It felt smooth and seemed a bit more luminous than normal. Because I've never done a brazilian peel before I wasn't exactly sure what the results would be. I thought my skin seemed a bit more bright but I think I need to try this a few more times in order to notice a real difference in my skin.
