Review: emerginC Complexion Control

What it is:
A balancing emulsion for healthy hydration and priming for makeup application.

What it's used for:
Complexion Control from emerginC is designed for the treatment of oily, acneic skin types. The lightweight formula delivers renewed hydration and balance and makes an excellent makeup base. Skin is left supple, matte and healthy.
Ingredients:
Water (Aqua), Emulsifying Wax, Vegetable Oil, Stearic Acid, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Cetyl Alcohol, Gluconolactone, Sodium Benzoate, Triethanolamine, Polyacrylamide, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Laureth-7.

Morning and/or night, apply on clean skin. 
 
What do I think?
This product is very nice. It helped my dry skin on my face a lot. I was worried my face would breakout since it's very sensitive, but I'm happy to say no breakouts. I love that it's natural, paraben free, and organic.  No greasy feeling like I get from other products. My skin felt refreshed and light after use. The only issue I have is with the price. If you are looking to splurge and can afford this product I would highly recommend it.

Review: Pedi-Sox

I recently had the chance to try out a very unique product. I like to give myself pedicures. Most are surprised to know that I have never had a pedicure in a salon. I don't like the idea of other people touching my feet?? Am I the only one??

Pedi Sox are one of a kind toe-less sox will turn an ordinary pedicure into an extraordinary experience. With Pedi Sox feet will stay clean and comfy and your skin will stay softer and smoother.

Products I received:




About the Company:

I would like to introduce you to a brand new, one of a kind product that is full of "holes", literally - and that is what makes it so unique!

For years, I have personally enjoyed the soothing qualities of pedicures, but felt there should be away to create a pleasant transition of my feet back into the 'real world' and knew there had to be a simple and practical solution to resolve this abrupt transition. I wanted to create a way to extend the pleasure of the pedicure experience and keep my feet warm, comfy and clean while allowing my nail polish to dry smudge fee. 'Exploring' prototypes to my friends, I found a great response and demand - thus confirming my need for a 'holy' sock! To my surprise, I suddenly found myself in business when orders started rolling in simply by sharing my sock story with my friends and pedicurist.

I eventually persuaded an extremely quality-conscious sock manufacturer to cut 'holes' in their reputation to create Pedi-Sox®. A quality sock designed and manufactured strictly for pedicures which can be used over and over! Pedi-Sox® come in an assortment of styles and fashionable colors while being priced affordably. Now those who enjoy pedicures can keep their feet comfy and clean, allow moisturizers to absorb better and protect their nail polish - while extending the pleasure of the pedicure experience.

I currently have 5 sock styles: The Original Pedi-Sox®, Professional Pedi-Sox®, California Weight Pedi-Sox ®, SPA Pedi-Sox® and my newest...Ultra Pedi-Sox™.

Have you tried an Overnight Foot Softening Treatment ?  Fabulous ! I hope you are as excited about Pedi-Sox® as I am and look forward to hearing from you soon.
"Pamper your Feet"™! and Thank you for your interest!

Review: I was very excited to try out these sox and the foot cream. I will be honest and say I definitely neglect my feet. I try to take time out for myself but being a very busy stay at home mom and planning a wedding doesn't leave much time for myself.  I have vowed that at least twice a month I will give my feet some attention. I really love the sox and how soft they were. My favorite were definitely the leopard ones since I loveee animal print. The foot cream is amazing and I definitely noticed a huge difference in one use. I like to apply the cream once I get out of the shower then I put my pedi-sox on. I wake up to very soft and smooth feet. I would highly recommend Pedi-Sox and there products. They are very affordable and you will not be disappointed!! (Pedi-Sox retail for $7 and up)

Review: This serum is amazing!! A little definitely goes a long way. This bottle will last me forever. I applied this after shampooing and conditioning. I then blow dried my hair and wow!! My hair was extra soft, shiny, less frizzy, and full of body. I would highly recommend this product.

Review: MeUndies

I love going shopping for lingerie/panties. I have drawers and drawers full. Some still have the tags on them. I was very excited to get the opportunity to try out a pair of panties from MeUndies. They offer monthly a monthly subscription like the Birchbox but instead it's undies.

Here are the boyshorts I was sent for review:





About the Company:

 MeUndies makes top quality basics and sells them for less than other top quality brands  

How do we do it?
Top quality designer underwear sells for 10 times what it cost to make. By eliminating brick and mortar stores, retail middlemen and brand licensing fees we can pass the savings to our customers and deliver top quality underwear right to their door.

Why do we do it?
Our goal is to create a company that delivers comfort, convenience and affordability. We believe that there should be an easier, less expensive way to buy essential basic apparel.

We also think that there isn’t a company out there that does it all well. Right now, the best t-shirts, socks and underwear are made by three different brands. We have started by making the most comfortable underwear and strive to be the first full service basic apparel company that makes each product the best on the market. 


Review:  All of the MeUndies brand underwear are made in L.A. with 100% cotton lining, the highest quality lace, and are designed to not only look sexy, but also FEEL sexy- and amazing! I must admit I didn't think any different of this brand from another brand. Would they really be comfortable? YES, they are very comfortable. I forgot I was even wearing them!

Wanna know something else really cool?? If you live in LA you can go to a vending machine to purchase these undies!!

Review: Extreme Tan and Smoothies Spray Tan Can Anti-aging bronzing mist


(Picture credit)

I will admit it, if you don't know by now that I'm a tanning addict. I love being bronze all year long. I have a few self tanners that I love but I'm always willing to experiment with new ones!

For review today I have Extreme Tan and Smoothies Spray Tan Can Anti-aging bronzing mist....

What it says on the product: 
Innovative Technology has now brought the ability to have an airbrushed tan into the privacy of your own home. Spray Tan Can will deliver expert level results that would make your airbrush professional envious.

This anti-aging bronzing mist gives you an instant streak free tan whether used for touch ups or full body tans. 

Our uniquely delivery system produces skin that is more than just deeply tan. Your skin will be moisturized with anti-aging ingredients that give our skin a smooth radiant look and feel. 

Directions: 
Shake can well before applying. Hold can appropriately 10 to 14 inches from your body and spray in smooth even movements. When spraying your face, close your eyes and hold your breath. For best results, exfoliate prior to spray tanning. Apply lightly around the face, feet, and ankles. If solution gets on the palms of your hands or the bottom of your feet, wash off immediately with soap and water. For best results, use blow dryer or fan to quick dry after your spray tan session and wear loose fitting clothes. To achieve the maximum effect, allow 6 hours before bathing to extend the life of your sunless tan. Use our daily max tan extender as tan begins to fade. Reapply as needed. If irradiation occurs, discontinue use.

Before:

After 2 hours!!
 

What do I think? I love this self tanner. I love that it delivered an instant tan and it was very moisturizing!!

ADVANTAGES: I really loved that with this self tanner all you had to do was spray, no blending. I must say I was quite worried at first but was amazed later.  The color result was a gorgeous golden bronze tan. It looked very natural and even.No ORANGE color.  The spray can makes it very easy for application, just spray and let dry. I love that the solution dried in less than two minutes. The smell of this self tanner is amazing, smells like coconuts.  As with most self tanners, I was worried about the self  tan odor after applying. I'm very happy to see that their was no smelly odor. (Woo!! Thank goodness) I also received a Self Tanning Lotion sample that I use in combo with this and I love it just as much!!

DISADVANTAGES: NONE!! I love it!!.

Would I buy this again? Yes, I would definitely repurchase. It's a great self tanner and I would highly recommend it.

 

Retail: $16.95 for 7 fl oz and can be purchased here

Check out my online Jamberry Party!!


Just a few of the designs Jamberry offers:




 
 

  
About Jamberry:

 Jamberry Nails started with three sisters.

We created Jamberry Nails to provide a simple way to brighten your day. We constantly get letters and feedback from customers letting us know how much they love the product and how many compliments they get day after day. We know you'll love the product too and feel great wearing your Nail Shields.


You'll also love Jamberry Nails because of how easily
they can be applied and how many different looks you can achieve by mixing and matching. Our Nail Shields will give you that high-end salon look in the convenience of your own home.


How to apply:

Jamberry Nail Shields are designed to be easily applied in a salon or at home.

Step 1: Clean nails with nail polish remover or alcohol. (Clean, oil free nails are one of the most important steps of the application)


Step 2: Cut and file nails to desired length and shape.

Step 3: Buff top of the nail and push back cuticle.

Step 4: Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail shield that best fits.

Step 5: Peel off nail shield and warm with a blow-dryer 10-15 seconds or until soft and flexible.

Step 6: When warm, press the shield onto the nail. Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail. Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle.

Step 7: Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove excess.

Step 8: Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it is sealed to the nail. (Repeating this step several times helps create a tight seal to the nail surface and increases wear time)

Optional Step 9: For active users you can add a small amount of nail glue to the free edge to better seal the nail shield.

How to Remove:

Use hair dryer to heat for 15 seconds and slowly peel from the corner of your nail
