Why I'm in Love With Caribbean Coconut Body Butter by Bella Organics
October 25, 2016

  When I found out I was going to Cuba, it was all about the Caribbean!  All I could think of was tropical drinks and sandy beaches. I could just about taste the fresh smell of salty Caribbean air.  I love everything Caribbean and Caribbean inspired.  For Pisces, it is reminiscent of all things beach and beachy. When I packed for my Fathom Cruise to Cuba you bet I threw in a jar of Caribbean Coconut Body Butter by Bella Organics in my suitcase!     Like all their other products, it is 100% organic.  It's main ingredient is Shea butter which is great for moisturizing and antitaging.  It also helps combat harsh climate,  dehydration and pollution damage and is packed with vitamins and nutrients.  This rich body …

Farmhouse Fresh Peat Perfection Mask
October 19, 2016

  I am a mask addict!  I love masks, especially clay and mud masks.  There's something really cleansing about applying a mask.  For me, the physical act of applying a mask is healing and therapeutic.  Taking some time for myself is important in my busy life.  After I do it, I feel refreshed and revived. I decided to try the Farmhouse Fresh Peat Perfection Mask.     Farmhouse Fresh Peat Perfection Mask is a soothing peat vegetative mask.   Packed with vital nutrients, this mud mask also has Kaolin clay which helps  balance oils and pull impurities away, making pores look smaller. Panthenol pulls in and locks in hydration and Allantoin cools skin and has fatty acids from safflower oil to help protect skin's barrier function making it gentle enough to …

This post is sponsored by Momoupbeauty, however, all opinions are my own.  I’ve also included an affiliate link on this post, which means if you click on the product link and purchase the item I will receive a commission from Amazon. It is so inconvenient to travel with bottles of makeup remover.  Have you ever had to deal with it spilling in your suitcase?  Ugh!  It's not fun! Now when I travel, I take this into consideration.  If I have to take anything that is liquid, I put it in a plastic bag and that plastic bag goes into yet another plastic bag... So I was excited to try Momoup Facial Makeup Remover Pads.  The packaging is adorable and I love that you can slip them on your fingers for easier …

Era Organics for the Body and Hair
August 18, 2016

This is a sponsored post. This post may contain affiliate links and if you click on them, I will receive commission.  It's so good to know that I am putting something healthy and natural on my skin and my hair when using Era Organics.  Chemicals might seem to work short term and faster but ultimately they strip the hair and skin of their natural oils.  Era Organics is superfood for your skin and hair, nourishing, protecting, and soothing.. I have tried Era Organics in the past, specifically the Healing Balm and my son and I love it.  It really soothes those irritated areas.  I also tried the Microdermabrasion Manuka Honey Face Scrub & Facial Mask. It exfoliates naturally without damaging the skin in the process. I …

Skin Medica
August 15, 2016

This is a sponsored post, however, all opinions are mine. At forty-five-years old, I am definitely worried about my skin.  Living in an area where plastic surgery is prominent, and Botox and Restylane are just a party away, the pressure is on! My years working in cosmetics have taught me that a skincare regimen is important, and that's exactly what I got when I received the Skin Medica kit. The Skin Medica kit comes with Vitamin C+E, Dermal Repair, AHA/BHA Cleanser, TNS Eye Repair and Lip Plump System.  These are all anti-aging products perfect for someone like me. The products I was most excited to try, believe it or not, was the lip plumper and lip renewal.  I have a bit of a plumper addiction! The TNS Lip Plump …

I love Cilantro...in my food.  I love anything that smells like Citrus.  But would I put this mixture on my body?  Well, I had such a good experience with the Farmhouse Fresh Sweet Tea Scrub that I was pretty certain I would like it.

Review for Vibriance Super C Serum
August 8, 2016

This is a sponsored post, however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. There are affiliate links in this post. I have tried numerous Vitamin C Serums over the years. because I have a lot of UV damage.  Vitamin C seurm is great for hydration, combats free radicals, helps with dark spots, sun damage and wrinkles. How do you Really Know Which Serum to Use? How do you choose the best Vitamnin C Serum for yourself? From my experience, I have learned that Vitamin C can break down if not packaged properly and therefore might not be as effective.  So I always look at packaging. Second, I look at how my skin reacts right away.  Although, most serums don't show results right away because it does take …

MONAT Hair Products
July 21, 2016

How MONAT Hair Products Worked for me. I love oils for my hair and anything that adds sheen, manageability and a healthy scalp. But since having children and being more aware of toxins, I have been wanting safer hair products that are less toxic, even for myself. So, I've been on the look out for natural and organic, cruelty free hair products. Just because it’s an oil, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have toxins in it. I love a good vegan hair product! I tried the REJUVENIQUE by MONAT and really liked it. It has no sulfates, paraben, or phthalates and has no harmful fragrances. It is 100% natural, non-GMO, ecofriendly, naturally based, and fully biodegradable. This oil is different though. It is Abyssinian Oil, …

Clairol Hair Food
July 18, 2016

Is your hair hungry?  Mine is!  Especially since I cut five inches off.  My hair needs nourishment more than ever during the hot, humid summers here in Florida.  Hair Food is naturally inspired, made without parabens, gluten, mineral oil and dyes.  Your hair deserves to be nourished! Target launched Clairol's new line of Hair Food in May and I was excited to try it.  My hair is fine and frazzled.  I have been coloring it for at least twenty-five years!  I got to try two, both which I really liked.  They both made my hair soft and feel healthy. I tried Hair Food Gluten Free Hair Milk with Jasmine & Vanilla Shampoo - 17.9floz and Hair Food Gluten Free Hair Milk with Jasmine & Vanilla Conditioner - …

Why Every Woman Over 40 Should Wear Giorgio Armani Foundation
July 14, 2016

It is interesting that after all my years of working in cosmetics and now blogging about cosmetics that I have circled back to Giorgio Armani Beauty.  Whenever I venture out to try something else, somehow, I come back to it.  I worked for them in 2004 for about five years and although I went on to work for other high end cosmetic companies as a makeup artist, I always longed for my Luminous Foundation.  I would discover something great but then realize that it never lived up to the expectations that Giorgio Armani Beauty set for me.  I could never achieve "that glow." As a 45-year-old woman I am faced with the fact that I need makeup to achieve that youthful look.  Luminous Foundation is …

COVERGIRL Katy Kat Collection
June 25, 2016

I had so much fun playing with this collection!  Who doesn't like a matte lipstick?  Katy Kat Matte, that is... Katy Kat Matte Lipstick  is a demi-matte lipstick with a demi-matte finish.   The color featured above is Magenta Minx.  It is pink! Pink! Pink!  Did I say it's pink?  lol.  It's creamy and lightweight without drying out the lips.  However, I don't recommend it for someone my age (forty-five)  because after wearing matte on a regular basis, your lips tend to dry out, no matter how creamy the lipstick is.   When I was in my twenties and even thirties I could get a way with wearing matte everyday.  But not now. I do like a red matte though which I wear maybe once a month …

Faking It With New AGEbeautiful
June 22, 2016

  I have been faking it for years.   I think I started faking it in my late 20's.  At first it felt natural to fake it, but as the years went by it became more work.  But it really works for me now.   Age is just a number, right? So at forty-five years old I now know whether I will be using gold, ash, or red bases for my hair color.  I have experience in faking it.  With all that experience, I’ve gotten to know the over the counter brands, the salon brands, and the ones at Sally's.  Now more than ever, the term "aging" is used in my vocabulary.  The forties are the new thirties, right?  But let's face it, my hair is aging and …

May 18, 2016

It's no secret that Vitamin C does wonders for the skin.  It has antioxidants that help protect the skin from free radical damage and so much more.  I have used Vitamin C serums for years.  But I have yet to come across a 3-in-1 serum + moisturizer + exfoliant.  Until I came across Essa Vita-C-Whip.™ Essa Vita-C-Whip™ is serum with so much more.  In addition to having all the benefits of potent antioxidants (Vitamins A & C & E), it has Hyaloronic Acid which gives your tired and dehydrated skin the hydration is so desperately needs.  And nothing makes your skin look more radiant that exfoliating it so this added benefit is the icing on the cake. This lotion is a whipped, non oily consistency in a …

Juice Beauty
April 14, 2016

I've worked for some amazing skincare and makeup lines.  I never had any issues with allergies or reactions until I turned forty.  Was it the hormones?  Was it the chemicals in the cosmetics?  The synthetic fragrance in the skincare?  Who knows. All I know is that after research and testing, organic makeup suits me much better.  Just as I don't want chemicals on my fruits and vegetables, I prefer not to add chemicals in my skin, which is the largest organ in the body.  I try to do as much organic as I can. So I wanted to try something from Juice Beauty.  After all, Gwyneth Paltrow is the creative director and her skin is flawless and always glowing.  I'd try anything from them but I love …

Bella Organics
February 4, 2016

I've always loved Bella Organics.  They were one of the first organic products that I tried that I felt were made with real quality.  There are so many organic products out there.  But I'm looking for the best organic products out there!  I remember getting my first package and I could smell it through the mailbox.  I couldn't stop smelling the package! Haha!  It smelled so good... I loved the deodorant.  I love my coconut lime lip balm.  I'm obsessed with my Dead Sea Mineral Mud Mask.   I've also tried the Refreshing Jasmine Facial Cleanser which is one of their signature products. And so I'm pretty excited to try something new; the Anti aging cream and the Coffee Body Scrub. I tried the Jasmine Honey Hydrating Face Cream …

Red Apple Lipstick
January 9, 2016

I stopped reviewing so much makeup lately because my eyes are so sensitive and seem to react to everything.  But when I had the opportunity to check out more of Red Apple Lipstick's makeup, I jumped at the chance.  Their makeup is all  lab tested 100% gluten free and they don't test on animals.  These are two major questions many of my customers would ask me when working behind the cosmetic counters at different retailers like Saks Fifth Ave and Nordstroms. This time I tried two products.  The first being The Lash Project, Gluten Free, Lash Conditioning Mascara.  I honestly did not have extremely high expectations with this mascara only because A)  I have used ALL the well known high end, best mascaras that are out …
