Sebastian Gift Set is Fabulous

Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo and Conditioner is great for leaving your hair soft and shiny. I have to say, I go for shampoos and conditioners that have a clean fresh smell and Sebastian Professional Hair Care products do just that.

Here are some facts about Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo and Conditioner: “Trilliance Shampoo polishes the surface of the hair and creates a smooth surface to enable greater light reflection. Trilliance Conditioner smoothes the hair’s surface and cuticle to create the foundation for shine. A-morir for Sebastian sunglasses – custom designed crystallized sunglasses flaunting multi-dimensional shine.”

This exclusive Limited Edition In-Salon Gift Set that I just received came with crystallized sunglasses designed by celebrity eye-wear designer, Kerin Rose. They are fabulous! This gift set is retailed for $25 and I definitely think it’s worth it!

Consider this exclusive in-salon gift set when planning your holiday shopping. Sebastian Hair Care products are great gifts for those who want great looking hair and great looking eye wear.

Seabuck Wonders is Truly a Wonder

Not to long ago, I discovered Sea Buckthorn, a supplement which contains an extremely beneficial oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil. As stated by SeabuckWonders, “SeabuckWonders is the only full line of products made from USDA certified organic sea buckthorn berries.”  After doing some research on Sea Buckthorn, I learned how beneficial this oil actually is. It’s 100% pure, high in Omega-7 and helps promote healthy skin and hair among other things. You can learn  more about Sea Buckthorn at  http://www.seabuckwonders.com/education/, the information is truly fascinating. Sea Buckthorn was also featured on The Dr. Oz  Show. Dr Oz himself deemed Sea Buckthorn the new “miracle berry”, http://www.seabuckwonders.com/dr-oz-sea-buckthorn.

Now that I know about the health benefits of Sea Buckthorn Oil, I was excited to learn that SeabuckWonders recently introduced a new skincare line. The skincare line consists of Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream, Body Lotion, Facial Cleanser and Deep Hydrating Serum. All of the skincare products are ” packed with a high concentration of sea buckthorn oil for maximum results. That means healthier, softer and more beautiful skin for all those who add these products to their daily routine.”

My daughter and I were just discussing the fact that many body lotions on the market today feel heavy and greasy. You won’t find this to be the case with any of Sea Buckthorn’s Skincare Products.  Sea Buckthorn Body lotion not only moisturizes and protects your skin, it supports cell function and protects your skin from UV-induced stress. Sea Buckthorn Body Lotion is a very light lotion which dries quickly leaving your skin pleasantly soft. The lotion has a natural scent of orange oil so I don’t mind using it before bed because it has a nice delicate scent.

I found Sea Buckthorn Exfoliating Facial Cleanser to be a fabulous cleanser. It contains a very light exfoliate which was not scratchy at all and rinses off easily. This facial cleanser has all the great nutritional properties as the lotion, leaving your skin feeling cleansed and refreshed. After cleansing, for a more radiant looking skin, apply Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream.  I use it as I would a moisturizer, it is very light, spreads easily and dries quickly, leaving your face feeling smooth. For added moisture and to help minimize fine lines while retaining a youthful healthy glow, try adding Sea Buckthorn Hydrating Serum to your skincare routine. Your skin will look and feel better with a daily routine of cleansing, moisturizing and hydrating with Sea Buckthorn Skincare.

Sea Buckthorn Skincare  contain a high concentration of Organic Himalayan Sea Buckthorn and are infusd with Omega 3,6,7 & 9.  These skincare products are vegan, GMO, paraben, cruelty and Gluten free. They are also available for all skin types. Add SeabuckWonders to your daily routine for healthier, glowing and more beautiful looking skin.

Become Your Own Perfume Designer

The power of scent…….. Scents can trigger intense feelings and emotions in every human being. Its power can be used to boost your confidence, calm you down, make you feel secure, energize you and more. Scent can tell us much more than we are aware of, and its power should not be underestimated!

While I am a big fan of perfumes, I have become a bigger fan of Lisa Hoffman’s fragrance collection. She allows you the opportunity to become your own perfume designer, and the ability to change your scent as often as you want throughout your day! It’s a designer innovation creating a fragrance revolution! The ultimate way to wear a fragrance—your way!

Lisa, (http://www.lisahoffmanbeauty.com/) a busy professional, entrepreneur, wife and mother understands the fragrance wearer and this understanding is reflected in the modern sensibilities of not only her fragrance collection, but in the wearer’s ability to enjoy the fragrance in uncomplicated ways! She embraces every facet of life into her creative process, from the everyday to the adventurous, and allows the wearer to do the same and change it up as often as they want to!

Her collection consists of fine jewelry pieces that include a signature charm that holds scent infused beads which slowly release its fragrance! (A bonus-no more accidently over-spraying a scent!) The fragrance line consisting of Japanese Agarwood (soulful and woody notes), Madagascar Orchid (exotic), Tuscan Fig (romantic and warm), Tunisian Neroli (sensual and mysterious) and French Clary Sage (crisp and clean) gives a wonderful palate to play and experiment with! Put a bead (or a few!) in the necklace, bracelet, cuff or earrings and change it up throughout the day!

The Holiday Gift scents are a perfect gift for yourself or any lover of perfume on your list! It comes with a full size Eau De Parfum and matching Fragrance Bracelet with refillable fragrance beads! This season, wear fragrance your way!

TouchBack Marker is Here To Stay

 

TouchBack Brow marker-Being an eyebrow fanatic and very picky with the way they look, giving TouchBack Brow Marker a try was a dream! I fell in love with how easy the application was. Use very quick short strokes and follow in the direction the brow hair grows. I was able to create fully shaped brows in a cinch while looking very natural and not over done. I used dark brown and the color stayed on all day until washing off. A little tip about your eyebrows, remember they are not twins, they are sisters, and they can help you not to over tweeze!! No more powder for my eyebrows, this marker is here to stay.

 Kristina Barricelli, Gemini14 Salon states it nicely, “It’s all about experimentation. If you have warm but fair – or “Strawberry” – hair with brows to match, the browns on their own might be a bit too dark. The darker you go the cooler the color, so try mixing a couple of shades. If you’re feeling adventurous – especially you brunettes out there — don’t be afraid to go dark. You’ll find that it’ll add incredible dimension to your eyes and cheekbones.

TouchBack Marker http://www.touchbackgray.com/browmarker is available in 4 shades that coordinate very nicely with TouchBack Hair Color. TouchBack Marker is not tested on Animals

Give a Gift Wrapped With Gratitude

 

What a wonderful time of year. A time for family, friends, baking and holiday shopping. We all know that holiday shopping requires gift wrapping.  Before you head to the stores stocking up on gift wrap, ribbons, bags, tissues, bows and tape (yes, you actually need most of these items to wrap one gift), consider wrapping your gifts with reusable fabric gift bags from Gratitude Gift Bags.

The holidays are not the only time we need gift wrap. There are always birthdays, anniversaries and all sorts of special occasions throughout out the year that require special wrappings and Gratitude Gift Bags offers just that.

Gratitude Gift Bags are eco-friendly fabric bags that can be reused which makes them extremely cost effective. Just knowing that I don’t have to deal with gift wrap, tape, scissors, tissue paper and boxes makes Gratitude Gift Bags quite appealing. Gratitude Gift Bags are also great for the holidays with many children-themed and Christmas/Hannukah patterns. They come in a variety of colors, sizes and patterns and fabrics such as rayon/taffeta.  The Wine bottle bags are spectacular. My favorites are the gift card holders (shown below). What a great way to present a gift card than in a fabric gift card holder.

Gratitude Gift Bags are assembled in the USA and custom orders are welcome. To view Gratitude Gift Bags patterns, sizes, and pricing, please visit their website at gratitudegiftbags.com.

Gratitude Gift Bags will be offering a 15% discount on your purchase so be sure to use the promotional code Blog15 at checkout on their website: Gratitudegiftbags.com.  Remember, give a gift wrapped in gratitude with Gratitude Gift Bags.

Keeping Oily Skin Under Control

Question:  Does your makeup ever seem to match your skin perfectly in the morning and look several shades darker by the end of the day?  Mine has.  This has puzzled and frustrated me for years, especially since, like a lot of women of color, I’ve spent a considerable amount of time searching for the perfect foundation.  It always looks great in the store!  So what happens?

Did you know that oil is the main cause of color change in makeup?  Luckily, I’ve never had too much of a problem with oily skin, but after being out in the sun all day or  under hot set lights,  it’s hard to keep anyone’s face from getting shiny.  So, I’m so happy that I was recently introduced to two oil control products from THE SKIN CARE MAKEUP  line by jane iredale.

“Shine is notable by its absence!”

Absence® Oil Control Primer promises to control the oil produced by skin without affecting its moisture.  I’ve been using it under my foundation to control shine for about a week now and I love it! It doesn’t make your skin feel dry and is really sheer and color-free.  In fact, you’ll hardly know it’s there.  You can use a makeup brush or the sponge that’s included to apply it under makeup on the parts of your face that tend to get oily (like I do) or on your entire face as a primer.  It’s good for oily, normal or combination skin and can also be used alone or under any mineral base. 

Absence® is available at shop.janeiredale.com and retails for $37.00.

jane iredale Facial Blotting Papers control shine on-the-go!

To keep shine under control while you’re on-the-go, I suggest trying jane iredale’s Facial Bloting Papers.  It’s amazing how much excess oil these tiny little sheets can soak up!  You get 100 blotting papers in a super cute little gold metal compact that you might want to use for business cards later:)  I’ve always just used face powder for touch-ups throughout the day, but these soft, all-natural papers made from organic flax seed are really absorbent and give you a more natural flawless finish.  Great for tucking into your purse to use anytime!

Facial Blotting Papers with Compact are available at shop.janeiredale.com and retail for $11.00.
