Elavo is Luxury for Your Eyes

I found the perfect eye cream to help wake up my tired and stressed eyes, Elavo Radiant Eyes. That’s right, even you can have radiant eyes with a dab or two of Elavo Radiant Eyes before bedtime.  Elavo Radiant Eyes is part of a new skincare line, Elavo Skincare, created by New York based, board certified Dermatologist Dr. Ahmet Altiner.  As explained by Elavo Skinecare, “Elavo Radiant Eyes is a powerful antioxidant complex that clinically reduces the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.” Elavo Radiant Eyes peaked my interest because of its claim to reduce puffiness and dark circles around the eye area, which is an issue many of us have to deal with.

Elavo Radiant Eyes contains a powerful ingredient, Titanium dioxide. According to Elavo, “Titanium Dioxide provides effective SPF protection from UVA and UVB rays and thanks to its light-diffusing properties, works as a pigment corrector to instantly reduce the shadows that play off dark under eye circles”. Its natural antioxidants help heal damaged collagen which helps reduce puffiness.  Elavo Radiant Eyes has a very nice light texture which smooths easily around your eyes without leaving a heavy greasy feeling.  I plan on continuing with Elavo Radiant Eyes, and leaving my dark circles and puffiness behind.

Elavo Radiant Eyes is only available for purchase on www.ElavoSkincare.com.

It’s Time to Choose Your “SPROUT”

What do the following items have in common? Corn Resin, Diamonds, Mother of Pearl, Organic Cotton, Bamboo, Mineral Crystal, Recycled Water Bottle Straps, Murcury Free Battery and Recycled Filters, do you give up?  The answer is “SPROUT”, an eco-friendly Timepiece and you will find that each watch will contain one or more of these organic materials mentioned, and they are amazingly eye-catching.  I have been sporting my Sprout  watch all summer long and I love it.  The Sprout I chose was a perfect fit for me. As you can see from the photo abpve, it has a comfy strap, with a cork face.  The elegant gold tone numbers are just the right size, making it easy for me to read.

Sprout  watches are available in an array of styles, colors and sizes.  There are so many styles to choose from that you will have difficulty selecting one. What is so special about the Sprout Timepiece?  As stated by Sprout, their watches are “an eco-friendly timepiece designed to have the smallest possible impact on this great home we call earth“.  Sprout watches are so unique that “80% of the materials used to make sprout watched are natural, low impact, biodegradable, recycleable or renewable.”

When you are viewing Sprout watches, you would never think they were earth friendly because they look so fashionable.  Most of us never associate recycleable and fashionable at the same time.  For example, The Owl Sprout watch below has diamonds for eyes and includes some Mother of Pearl, very elegant.  Sprout timepieces are designed for Men, Women and Children.  You will  have a difficult time choosing one of these delightful eco-friendlywwatches, but you won’t have a difficult time wearing it.  You won’t want to take it off.  It’s time to choose your Sprouthttp://www.sproutwatches.com/

The Way To Amazing Brows is Joey Healy

I recently discovered this amazing eyebrow powder and it’s from the Joey Healy Eyebrow Collection of Luxe Brow Powders.  Before I tell you how you can have amazing eyebrows, I want to introduce you to Joey Healy.

Joey Healy, is a premier eye-brow specialist, professional make-up artist and a licensed esthetician based in New York. “Founder of The Joey Healy Eyebrow Collection, Joey focused his infatuation with flawless eyebrows into the development of chic, modern cosmetic line that delivers truly exquisite product”. Joey Healy’s talented make-up work can be seen on covers of international magazines, runways, television even the New York City Ballet.

Two products in the Joey Healy Collection that I am having amazing results with are the Luxe Brow Powder and the Duo Brow Brush. The Duo Brow Brush is an essential tool because it allows you to apply the Luxe Brow Powder precisely and effortlessly to your brow area.  You will be amazed at how easy it is fill and define your eyebrows. The angled brush, which is made of cruelty-free boar and badger hair is perfect for transferring the brow powder to your brow, the results are amazing. The opposite end of the brush, called the spoolie, ensures proper placement of the powder and will sweep your eyebrow right back into place. I find that brushing my brows allows me to trim them properly so that they look well groomed.

If you have eyebrows that are starting to become sparse, this is the product you won’t want to leave home without.  The Luxe Brow Powders are fabulous and so easy to apply. With a few dabs of Luxe Brow Powder on your brush, lightly fill in the areas that need touching up.  The powder blends right in, so much so, that you can not tell the difference between the powder and the brow.

The Luxe Brow powder is available in six shades and at http://joeyhealy.com/ you can view Joey Healy’s extensive line of eyebrow necessities.  To have the perfect Brow you need to have Joey Healy.

Give the gift of luxurious hair this holiday season with “Macadamia Natural Oil”

Macadamia Natural Oil has developed an outstanding line of Hare Care Products.  Combining the  benificial properties of Macadamia Nut Oil and Argan Seed Oil they formulated an  extensive line of hair care product that will not only heal and nourish your hair, it will revitalize and rejuvenate even the most damaged hair.  If you know the backgrounds of these two oils, you will understand why this is true.

At http://www.macadamiahair.com learn about their products and the history of both Macadamia Oil and Argan Oil.  I have heard so much about these two oils and I know many haircare and skin care lines contain Argan Oil, but I really hadn’t heard much about Macadamia Oil until now.  After visiting their website, I became very knowledgable of the benefits of these two oils combined,  and what they would do for my own color treated and stressed hair.  According to their website, the benefits of the Oils “Together, macadamia oil and Argan oil replenish the hair’s natural emollients with the high content of essential fatty acids found naturally in both of these exceptional oils.  The combined benefits help to nourish and protect the hair from harmful UV rays while repairing hair follicles for improved elasticity  and shine”.

My daughter Adrienne and I had the delightful experience of trying the Macadamia Natural Oil through their  Luxe Travel Set.  The Luxe Travel sets included everything we needed to try out Macadamia Nut Oil and we were glad we did.  My daughter especially found Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Care, sensational and she will be featuring her experience with Macadamia Nut Oil soon.!

Macadamia Rejuvinating Shampoo is a sulfate-free, paraban-free and colorsafe shampoo designed for all hair types.  Using both the shampoo together with Macadamia Moisturizing Rinse, you will notice right away how manageable and soft your hair will be.

I especially like the Macadamia Nourshing Leave-In Cream.  The leave-in cream helps with detangling curly hair and it really does leave your hair silky soft.

Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment is one of my favorites.  It can be used daily and is perfect for all hair types, especially dry and damaged hair like my own.  This Healing Oil Treatment also helped detangle my  hair leaving me with a frizz-free finish (which is a huge plus for my hair type, curly). Macadmamina Oil Treatment is also beneficial for color treated hair, helping to  reduce fading and offering natural UV protection.  You won’t believe how soft my hair is after applying it.

Macadamia Natural Oil has their own Healing Oil Infused Comb that works in conjunction with their Healing Oil Treatment. This special comb is a wide toothed comb and  provides even distribution of the Healing Oil, leaving no residue on your hands, detangling hair and leaving your hair smooth and shiny.

Another one of my favorites from this line is the Macadamia Deep Repair Masque.  This once or twice weekly treatment helps to revitalize dry, damaged hair.  Besides containing those two “beneficial Oils” we talked about, the Hair Repair Masque also contains tea tree oil, chamomile oil, aloe and algae extracts allowing for long-lasting conditioning.

Did I mention that Macadamia Nut Oil Hair Care Products smell fantastic, you hair will too!  This is a hair care system you have to try for yourself. http://www.macadamiahair.com

Give the gift of beautiful, luxurious hair this Holiday season with  Macadamia Natural Oil

Treat Yourself to a Glass of Tetley Iced Tea

For as long as I can remember, I have been an avid tea drinker.  I have a cup of hot tea almost every night before I go to bed. I always resorted to drinking my ice tea in restaurants because I could never find a good ice tea blendthat I could make at home.  It just didn’t taste the same.  My mom suggested that I try the iced tea blend by Tetley.  I was skeptical, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to try.  To my pleasant surprise, it was AMAZING!  One tea bag makes four cups of restaurant quality ice tea.  I also love that it is unsweetened so I can choose how I want to sweeten it and adjust the level of sweetness to my liking.  I ended up making a whole pitcher of it and two days later it still tasted fresh.  I just poured it over ice, added a little lemon and…voilà, a delicious glass of Tetley iced tea!

Moisturize with Fake Bake Mistifier

As I started putting my summer clothes away and pulling out my winter clothes, I realized  the weather was still warm enough to sneak in my last summer dress for the season. I glanced down at my legs and noticed they were slightly dry.  I  ran for the lotion which took care of  the dryness immediately. Rubbing lotion on your legs can be a little time consuming, especially if there isn’t any time. There is an easier way to moisturize. Instead of rubbing it on, try spraying it on with Fake Bake Mistifier.  This is a super product, one that I have been using quite often lately. Fake Bake Mistifier is an oil free Moisture spray and it is specifically formulated to hydrate your skin and also helps you maintain your golden glow.  I can’t agree more as Fake Bake States. “It’s also the easiest way to apply long-lasting moisture to your whole body thanks to the 360-degree spray nozzle”. 

 Fake Bake Mistifier contains two extremely beneficial antioxidants, Green Tea and Vitamin E, which help protect your skin from harmful free radicals in the environment.  Remember, those harmful free radicals help your skin age faster, and that is not what our goal is here.   Fake Bake Mistifier also contains Ginger Root and Aloe Vera Gel making it fabulous for soothing sensitive or irritated skin.

Fake Bake Mistifier can also be used before and after applying Fake Bake Self-Tanning for extra moisture retention. The Mistifier absorbs and dries fast for instant and long-lasting hydration.  I can spray Fake Bake Mistifier on my dry skin any time of day and night.  I sprayed the mistifier on my arms before leaving for work this morning and they are still feel silky and soft at 6 pm. The fragrance is sweet but subtle, you will love it.

You will find many more skincare and self tanning products at www.fakebake.com .
