IT&LY Hairfashion Presents….the “Purity Design” Experience

I was recently introduced to IT&LY Hairfashions extensive and incredible line of hairstyling and finishing products called Purity Design. What makes Purity Design so unique? It was designed to “create personal styles while providing moisture and shine to hair.”

IT&LY Hairfashion states that their “labs have separated the purest active ingredients and created a new protection formula that characterizes the line “Desert Blend“. Desert Blend is a combination of vegetable extracts and proteins derived from the plants of arid zones.  “These ingredients ensure  the natural hydration and the right protection against damages to the hair from pollutant agents and UV rays; therefore preventing dryness and dullness.”

Now, let me tell you about the products themselves. I found IT&LY’s website to be very helpful in selecting the appropriate product for my hair type. IT&LY has created  products to treat the specific needs of their clients. I have curly hair and need a medium hold, so what products do I choose?

At’11-page(s).pdf, you will find a complete description of each product in the Purity Design line.  On  pages 10 and 11,  I found the ” hold factor key”  to be extremely helpful.  This easy to follow color coded chart helped me select the product I needed based ont the hold I wanted (there are 4 to choose from), I chose medium. Purity Design  products do exactly what they say they do, as long as the instructions are followed.

Purity Design Pure Shampoo and Pure Conditioner are perfect for both normal and dry hair.  While the Shampoo helps make your hair stonger and healtier, the conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft, silky  and looking shiny.

After Shampooing and Conditioning, I gave my hair the Pure Fluid Experience.  I applied a small amount of this creamy, silky fluid to my damp hair. Pure Fluid was  designed to give softness and shine to my hair and it did just that.

Pure Hair Eco,  is a medium hold hairspray I use when needed,  giving  my hair a great hold without the heaviness and stiffness some hairsprays can cause.

Everyone who uses hair products should know that ” IT&LY Hairfashion is committed to creating an eco-friendly corporate environment as well as the use of emerging green techiniques in the production of its extensive line of environmentally friendly products”.

visit and learn more about Purity Design Hairfashion and select the products that were specially designed for you.

Selena Gomez Dazzles Wearing AVON at the Teen Choice Awards

Celebrity makeup artist Karan Mitchell worked with young starlet Selena Gomez for last night’s Teen Choice Awards. Inspired by Selena’s hot pink D Squared dress, Karan gave Selena a fun, flirty look with lots of lashes and pink lip gloss.

Karan focused on Selena’s eyes, layering shadows, liner and applying false lashes. She kept her skin super dewy by applying foundation with a dampened sponge and adding concealer under her eyes and on the t-zone for extra brightness. To give her that sunkissed effect, Karan contoured her cheeks with bronzer under the cheek bones and applied blush to her cheekbones for a rosy glow.

Below are the products that were used to get Selena’s look–all are available on or through Avon representatives nationwide.

Are Your Hands Ready For The Red Carpet?

Are your hands ready for the red carpet? They will be, with Sebamed’s Hand & Nail Balm. Without a doubt, this three-in-one moisturizer will have your hands and nails looking glamorous in no time. Three key ingredients make Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm a sensational moisturizer, Keratin, Vitamin B5 and Coconut Oil. What is so special about these ingredients? Vitamin B5 helps aid in skin regeneration, Keratin strengthens your nails which helps prevent breakage and Coconut Oil helps soften cuticles.

One of the problems I have been dealing with is dry cuticles, and nail breakage.  An attractive nail should not have a  combination of the two.  I have been using  Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm for several weeks now and have already noticed that my cuticles look better. When your cuticles look good, your hands and nails look good. When your skin looks great you feel great.  Another nice feature about Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm is that it is non-greasy and absorbs rapidly into your skin. I use it several times a day, especially after washing my hands and we all know that hand washing especially hand sanitizers, are ia big culprit when it comes to dry hands.

How many of you are Gel Manicurs wearers?  According to SebamedThis dermatologist-recommended balm is a deep moisturizing treatment that will improve the look, feel and health of your hands and nails between each manicure”.

While using Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm, you will notice improvement in the elasticity of your skin for a more youthful, healthy appearance. Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm also restores the elasticity of your nails which will make them less prone to breakage.  Sebamed Hand & Nail Balm is suitable for all skin types as well as sensitive and problematic skin as confirmed by dermatological tests.

Brighten Your Day the KARUNA Way

Karuna, “The Mask Experts,” has designed seven unique one-step, no-rinse formula masks.  Featured here, is the  The Karuna Brightening Treatment Mask.  The Karuna Masks were created for women who wish to pamper themselves with the most unique delivery system.  As stated by Karuna, they use “highly specialized ingredients that are custom blended to deep condition your skin to deliver specific results through an innovative delivery system”. Karuna Skin Treatment Masks help to deliver instant results.

Karuna’s Brightening Treatment Masks contain Grapefruit Seed Extract, which shields your skin from environmental toxins, while  rare Asian plant extracts help to create a fresher-looking, smoother-feeling complexion. Karuna believes that after experiencing the mask just once, your skin will feel calmer, brighter and fully moisturized.

I had the pleasure of pampering myself with a Karuna Brightening Treatment Mask.  The directions were very clear and easy to follow.  As you can guess, the side of the mask that is applied to your face is the side with the specially blended beauty product on it. I spread out the Karuna Mask evenly on my face and although the directions stated to relax for 10 to 20 minutes, I strongly suggest relaxing for the full 20 minutes. By doing this,  you will get the most benefit from Karuna’s  paraben-free custom-blended beauty product.  After you peel the mask off, massage the remaining product into your neck and hands. You will find the Karuna Mask to be very soothing.

The mask itself is an  all-natural fiber cloth, retaining 50% more moisture than synthetics, the Karuna cloth is “green” being made from bio-degradable wood pulp.  Karuna has created  7 different kinds of masks for individuals with specific facial needs.  You can choose from Brightening, Clarifying, Age-Defying, Hydrating, Karma, Exfoliating and Eye Renewal.  The Karuna Masks are sold in 4-packs at and there, you can learn more about Karuna masks and watch a How-To video and see just how easy it is to use the Karuna  Masks.   You will also find Karuna on Facebook  at

Soap & Glory Original Pink Eau de Parfum just Sparkles

Original Pink Eau de Parfume is a delightfully fragrant perfume having Soap & Glory’s signature rose and bergamot scent.  I found Original Pink most appealing, mainly because liked the  sparkling fragrance of orange, lemon, peach and strawberries.   Soap & Glory Original Pink also picked up some scents of gardenia, rose and jasmine all of which created  a lovely subtle aroma.  Original Pink itsn’t  too fruity, and I would wear it day and night.  After misting Original Pink, I found the fragrance to last quite some time which is always a test whether or not I will continue to wear it, and this particular fragrance, I definitely will.

You can purchase Soap & Glory Original Pink Eau de Parfum at and if you like Original Pink Eau de Parfum, you will love Soap & Glory’s other fragrances as well as their Bath and Body and Skin Care Line.  They have a fun website so make sure you check it out.

Here’s the Skinny on Skinny Girl Face and Body

If you asked me a month ago who Bethenny Frankel was, I never would have guessed that she was one of the “Real Housewives of New York”, I had heard about the show but never had the chance to watch it.  My daughters and I  now know that Bethenny Frankel has created an affordable, no nonesense skincare line  called Skinnygirl Face and Body Solutions.  I am especially enjoying Skinnygirl tinted Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 while my girls chose Skinnygirl Detox Mask.

What I like most about the Skinnygirl tinted Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 is that it does the same job as the name brand product I was recently using did,  but for 2/3 lss the price. That’s right 2/3 less the price.  Skinnygirl Tinted Moisturizer is SPF 15, which helps prevent skin from sun damage, and also contains vitimin E which is an antioxident to help prevent lines and wrinkles.  Skinnygirl Tinted moisturizer is available in 3 shades, so you can choose the one that best suits your skintone.  Skinnygirl Tinted moisturizer helps with redness and smooths out your skin leaving you with an eventoned, beautigul glow without the feeling of having used heavy foundations.  The Skinnygirl Moisturizer also has a wide brush tip applicator, which I tought was brilliant because I never needed to touch my face with my hands.  Skinnygirl  Moisturizer is dispensed through the brush, onto your skin making it easy to moisturize  all the hard places, like the sides of the nose and eye area.  This was so easy to accomplish with the brush tip applicator..  I was sold!

My daughters are especially enjoying Skinnygirl Detox Mask.  The key ingredient in Skinnygirl Detox Mask is Bentonite, which helps remove toxins from the skin, kaolin (whhite clay) which absorbs oils and mattifies and soothes your skin , sweet Almond oil to moisturize and soften and lastly, cucumber Extract which cools and softens skin. They like that their skin feels soft and clean afterwards.  They also told me that after they applied Skinnygirl Detox Mask (following the directions crefully) they could feel the cooling sensation on their skin while the mask was drying.

On a personal note, my husband  tried the Skinnygirl Detox Mask.  After all, what Skinnygirl Detox Mask  was stating was exactly what he was looking for.  Well, he did try it and has been using it on a regular basis.  My husband  is a basic soap bar, shampoo and toothpaste kind of guy. His use of  Skinnygirl Detox Mask on a regular basis clearly demonstrates he was impresses by the product.

Skinnygirl Face and Body can be purchased at the following retailers:      and   walmart logo
