Perfect & Gentle Cleansing with PURPOSE

purpose_product_grp

 

My oldest daughter is always on the hunt for facial cleansers formulated for sensitive skin. When she saw that I had a few PURPOSE  cleansing products, mainly PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash and PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Bar, she was intrigued. After reading the product information and ingredients she was interested in trying them. My daughter Jenna has been using PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash for several weeks now and is enjoying the results.

These are her thoughts on the PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing products that she is using; “I have very sensitive eyes. A lot of cleansers make my eyes itchy and red but PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Wash did not. It was  not perfumey and I don’t like cleansers that have very heavy scents to them. PURPOSE did not have a heavy scent which I liked. It was very easy to rinse off and It didn’t dry out my skin. I have very acne prone skin and it calmed down my break outs and helped prevent new ones”. “The PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Bar is very convenient and I keep it in the shower. It has a light scent and  leaves my skin fresh and soft.”

PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Products are formulated to help calm down sensitive skin. Sometimes, assorted skincare like masques, scrubs, and certain cleansers can start to make your skin sensitive and irritated. PURPOSE recommends eliminating all skincare products when your skin starts to become sensitive. You should do this for  at least 2 weeks while using PURPOSE Products. PURPOSE will gently remove dirt and residue without drying out your skin. Once your skin has calmed down and/or acne and other irritations have disappeared, you can resume your skincare regime with your other skincare products. PURPOSE skin care products are hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores).

My daughter is amazed at how her skin looks and is using several more of the PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing Products. PURPOSE Gentle Cleansing products can be purchased at CVS as well as other drugstores nationwide.

I Want the World to Know I Love Mixed Chicks Spring Bands

 

Mixed Chicks Spring Bands

Mixed Chicks Spring Bands

I purchased Mixed Chicks Spring Bands for my daughter because I thought they were fun and would look cute in her hair. Surprising they really work and when I love a product………  I LOVE A PRODUCT AND WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW!!  One morning, late as usual, I was in a rush to meet a bunch of friends for our weekly 6 mile run. Opening the door and heading out, I realized I did not have anything to hold back my hair so I rushed back into the kitchen in desperate need of an elastic. On the kitchen counter was one of the Mixed Chicks Hair Bands (You can find hair accessories all over my house and every time my husband picks up one, he announces that we can open up our own beauty store with his “finding supply”). I scooped it up and ran out the door. Yes, I had thoughts of this hair band ruining my run because the results would be hair in my face irritating me and hair sticky to my sweaty back. I needed this hair band to hold my hair away from my face and off my back. As I started my run, I was being a little cautious so my hair band would hold up for at least one of the miles. That philosophy flew out the window, as my friends are very completive and I found myself rapidly sprinting to be ahead of the gang, surprisingly after the 6 miles my hair was still intact.  The Mixed Chicks Hair Band stayed in place and held my hair away from my face and off my back without the wrenching feeling of your hair being pulled back by a 3 year old.

Then there was the genuine test of how the Mixed Chicks Spring Band will exit my hair, as my hair expands in humidity and gets a little wild. Well, it slid out very easily with no damage or hair attached to it. It was as simple as that! Mixed Chicks Spring Bands will keep your hair pulled back and out of your eyes while you workout, play, or just look pretty! They never stretch out and spring back to position so you always have that secure feeling. Curls or frizzy hair will not get tangled as they would with standard fabric or elastic hair bands. Mixed Chicks Hair Bands are specially designed for thick and curly hair! Mixed Chicks Hair Bands comes with 5 bands in each pack and available in pretty colors!  I always have a Mixed Chicks Hair Band around my wrist, ready to be used! Best invention ever!

Loved Doing the Makeup & Hair for the Cynthia Rose 2014 Spring Line

Cynthia Rose Collection

Here I am creating a hair and make up look on set at the Cynthia Rose 2014 Spring Line shoot “Fountain Bleu!”

Temptu publication jpeg 2

I worked with an amazing and talented crew. Exquisite Fashion Designer Cynthia Rose, International High Fashion Photographer Jonathan Bookallil and the beautiful and gracious model Dominyka Gajauskaite.

From Paris flea markets to couture houses around the world, Cynthia rose continues her passionate search for the most exquisite vintage fabrics and decadent trims defining her “elegance with an edge” philosophy.

The art of collage is the true inspiration behind the Cynthia rose collection of luxurious ready-to-wear and accessories.

The inspiration for the Spring 2014 collection entitled “FOUNTAINBLEU” evokes Palm Beach with a hint of the 20’s. The hand painted “Monet” inspired watercolor rose print is evident in the streamlined dresses and blouses and the intricately beaded bodices. The colors of goldenrod, aquamarine and blushed coral highlight the tweeds, suedes, laces, silks and cashmeres. Cynthia’s “signature sweaters” are breathtaking and essential for the Spring season.

Her signature limited edition works of art are collected by those who are true individuals.
