The Mane Choice brings you Ancient Egypt

IMG_3698

If you have read my blog recently, I found a great shampoo line called  The Mane Choice. I have been using The Mane Choice for quite some time now and having nice results. The line has offered features for my hair such as detangling, softening, extra shine and strengthening. The Hair Mask was amazing!! You can imagine how excited I was to learn of another line they have, The Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian Anti Breakage and Repair Antedote.  As soon as I see “Anti-breakage” I know I am going to try it. After all, I want to keep as much of my hair as possible. Pony tails, headbands and decorative combs and hot appliances have caused breakage to my hair and I have a few split ends that I want to get rid of now!

The Mane Choice Ancient Egyptian Anti Breakage and Repair Antedote line consists of 5 products; Shampoo and Conditioner, Hair Mask (used every 1 t 2 weeks), Oil which I use often for fabulous softness and shine, and a Split-End Treatment Serum. Right off the bat let me tell you they smell amazing. You will get the benefits of the tropical scents while washing and conditioning your hair and afterwards, with the split end treatment, Oil and Hair Mask. This Ancient Egyptian line is excellent for repair as well as prevention so everyone in the family can use it no matter what their hair type is. I love how my hair looks and it feels soft as ever.  I am loosing a lot less hair in the shower and not a split-end in sight.

As stated by The Mane Choice, “During the ancient Egyptian times hair was something that was considered a personal and important method of self-expression, and from the high positions of the pharaohs to the lowly servants, a great deal of thought was put into the way that they wore and cared for their tresses. Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote Collection has come close to duplicating the most historical formulas used during the ancient Egyptian era. Filled with some of the most rare and robust natural oils such as Kalahari Oil, Oleaster Oil, Mongongo Oil, and Baobab Oil to strengthen, repair and add remarkable shine.

My younger daughter loves the Split-End Treatment Serum too! I’m sure it won’t be hanging around the bathroom too much longer. Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote Split-End Treatment Serum is formulated to replenish and prevent split ends. Loaded with fatty acids omega 3,6,and 9, this powerful serum willleave your hair stronger, shinier and healthier. The Serum penetrats deep within the layers of the hair shaft and prevents and repairs cuticle damage. The serum really does work.

Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote Shampoo & Conditioner gently cleanses and conditions your hair helping to protect and repair damage.  I use the shampoo and conditioner every time I wash  my hair. They both contain fatty acids omega 3, 6 and 9, reduces frizz, reflect damaging UV rays & protect hair from the sun, helps to replenish hair & fight against split ends and strengthens and moisturizes. All great qualities when choosing the perfect shampoo and conditioner

Of course, the older I get the more I notice my hair becoming dryer and fragile, the Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote Hair Mask does the trick for me. It is the best one hour spent deep conditioning. After the mask treatment, my hair feels great, I feel great! The hair mask contains all the properties the shampoo, conditioner and serum do. The mask gives you added moisture for much stronger hair. You won’t know the difference until you try it.

Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote Oil (Retention Oil) is a perfect choice if you adore Hot Oil Treatments. I choose to add a little bit of oil to my scalp every few days for the shine and the smell. Like I stated earlier, the oil smells amazing. My daughter could  smell the tropical scent on me which was a big reason for her trying the serum.

Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote are formulated WITH Signature K.O.M.B. Oils (Kalahari Oil, Oleaster Oil, Mongongo Oil, Baobab Oil)

Ancient Egyptian Anti-Breakage & Repair Antidote is formulated WITHOUT Mineral Oil, Petroleum, Parabens Sulfates or formaldehydes.

You can find The Mane Choice Collections at their website www.themanechoice.com, Target, Walmart, and other large retail stores nationwide.

My new find…The Source For Muscles from Born Skincare

logo

I found an incredible oil formulated for skin called “The Source for Muscles”, created by Born Skincare. When I read that this oil was recommended for sore and achy muscles I was quite intrigued. I also liked the fact that the oil contains Organic eucalyptus oil, Menthol and and is blended with 100% Pure Muscadine Oil, giving it anti-inflammatory benefits. “The Source for Muscles”  is perfect for soothing sore muscles, neck and back pain.  The scent is strong (and I mean that in a good way), is quite calming and it will pleasantly clear your nasal passages. After applying the oil to your skin, you will feel a slight cooling affect as the oil is penetrating to your muscles. I have been using the oil on my body after spin class and I feel amazing afterwards.

Other oils contained in this line include; The Source for Sensitive Skin, The Source for Skin, The Source for Men, The Source for Mothers as well as serums and moisturizers.

Simply apply a light layer of oil on your achy muscles twice daily until pain subsides. For added benefits, massage oil into skin and allow muscles to relax and oil to penetrate deep into the skin. The entire line of facial and body oils from Born Skincare  contain zero harmful ingredients.

If you are looking for a facial cleanser that gets the job done, I recommend Born Skincare’s Pure Foaming Cleanser. It’s perfect for sensitive skin and is unisex. I love the fact that it is a foam so it does not drip. I leave it in the shower so my husband and I can both enjoy it. It works very well and it removes my makeup beautifully. Your skin will not feel dry after using this cleanser. Born Skincare’s Pure Foaming Cleanser is cruelty free, vegan free and contains no perfumes, parabens, phthalates or dyes. This is just the kind of skincare you want to pamper yourself with.

Another aspect of this skincare line that I love is that a portion of each Born Skincare purchase is donated to the Breast Cancer Fund.

The secrets behind youthful looks

imgres-1

 

We all know people who look significantly younger than the rest of their generation, and sometimes it’s difficult to believe that they are their actual age. Their teeth look great, their hair looks glossy, their skin radiant, and then there’s the body, which looks like it hasn’t aged at all.

So what exactly is the secret behind these people who annoyingly seem so much younger than they actually are? Unfortunately, there isn’t an anti-aging pill that can magically stop your body from the onset of old age. Achieving a younger looking body and youthful face takes a number of things: dedication, research, and in some cases, money!

Some of the more expensive ways in achieving youthful looks include plastic surgery or dental treatment, such as dental implants. For people that are affected by hair loss, money can also help when buying youth. Hair transplants are a popular solution for many celebrities and people with enough money to afford such treatment.

However, less expensive hair loss solutions are available to those without a few million in their bank. Successful hair growing products can be bought at very reasonable prices and have proven to be successful in hair regrowth.

Your skin is another telltale sign of aging, so investing in your skin can be a key factor in accomplishing that youthful look. There are many different moisturizing products available that can help slow down the aging process. Skin products can vary hugely in price, ranging from a few dollars, to a few hundred. The effectiveness of each product has been reviewed by many beauty experts, so if you have time, you can research into which are the most likely to work for you, and if they fall within your budget.

Avoid drastic weight loss and smoking as these can both have significant aging effects on your skin. Celebrities pay for personal trainers, dieticians, and many will even resort to surgery when losing weight. To get similar results, you are going to have to put in a lot of time and effort.

Exercising regularly will help you to stay younger looking, and developing some muscle tone will help to reduce those annoying physical signs of aging such as flabby upper arms for women, and rounded bellies for men. If you don’t have a personal trainer, then you will have to find other ways to motivate yourself, such as joining a class, setting a long-term target that you will need to train for, or exercising with a friend.

The way that you dress can also massively impact how old you look. If you research some of the styles adopted by the people who master the art of looking younger, then you can learn what will work for you. Celebrities will pay their stylists to achieve the right look for them, so you can copy the look without the expense of a stylist.

Finally, smile and look happy. This always makes people appear younger, as opposed to looking old and miserable!

Get the Look: Miranda Kerr at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party

unnamed-21

Celebrity Makeup Artist Lisa Storey worked with Miranda Kerr for tonight’s Vanity Fair After Party. Below is how to get the look from Lisa.

Inspiration: Lisa went for a natural but slightly defined look that was radiant and soft, creating an overall pretty and delicate feel.

 

Face: Lisa lightly applied Avon True Color Liquid Foundation all over Miranda’s face, then used Avon True Color Flawless Concealer Stick under the eyes and areas that needed a little more coverage. She lightly dabbed the concealer around the lip line to prep for lipstick. On the cheeks, she blended two shades of blush, Avon True Color Luminous Blush in Antique Rose and Avon True Color Luminous Blush in Candlelight, to create a delicate, flushed glow.

 

Brows and Eyes: On the eyes, Lisa started with the peach shade from the Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte. She applied it across the eye lid followed by shade #4 from the quad on the outer corners (top and bottom) to give some depth to the eye and applied #3 from the quad as a contour for the eye socket. She blended and smoothed the edges of the colors together to create a soft but upward finish to the eye. Lisa applied a few coats of NEW Avon True Color SuperExtend Nourishing Mascara in Black to Miranda’s lashes to open the eyes. Miranda’s brows were kept soft, just lightly defined with Avon True Color Glimmerstick Brow Definer in Dark Brown and highlighted with #1 from the shadow quad.
Lips: Lisa first applied Avon Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Rosebud, followed by NEW Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Peony Blush. She blotted it, reapplied then with her fingertips patted the center of the lips with Avon True Color Lipstick in Lava Love to give the color a boost.

Get The Look…Castillo Styles Halle Berry’s Hair

At the 89th Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, California, Halle Berry shined on the red carpet in her sparkling gown and voluminous curls. Her go-to stylist, Castillo, used MOP salon haircare products to create this glamorous and whimsical look.

unnamed-22Hairstylist: Castillo

Inspiration: Natural beauty, natural curls

Look: Asymmetrical Curly Afro, imagery here

I started with MOP mixed greens shampoo and conditioner to moisturize the hair.

On damp hair, I added the lemongrass whip to the roots for lift and added volume, then applied the MOP c-curl defining cream to midshaft through the ends.

Next, with the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i Hair Dryer and SoftTouch 2 Diffuser I diffused sections of the hair.

As soon as the hair was completely dry I used the T3 Whirl Trio Curling Iron to create different sized curls to clean up the look.

Last, I sealed the entire look in with the MOP c-system hairspray.

“It was a joint process, that took around two weeks to decide on. Halle’s been wearing her hair natural lately and we really wanted to create a style that embodied her whimsical spirit. She was blown away with the finished look, she said she felt absolutely amazing.”
