Take It Off!! FOREVER!!

Ok…so I never thought an “at home” laser treatment would really work but…IT DOES!! I have been using the Silk’n Flash&Go All-Over Hair Removal Device ($299 http://www.silkn.com) since the beginning of December and I have had amazing results! I have been using this on my underarms and bikini area and all the hair that I have been “removing” is gone!! All you do is choose your setting between 1-5, 5 being the strongest and then you aim the light on the area and press the “trigger” and the light flashes. Then you move on to the next spot. Your legs will take longer but you can do your arms and bikini area in less than 10 minutes! It is not painful at all! I do it on setting 5 and you feel a little heat pressure and a strong pulse, no pain that is unpleasant like waxing or epilating. When you compare the one time price of this machine to the price of the several professional sessions you would have to purchase, this is totally worth it!!! I recommend this for anyone that hates shaving, waxing, tweezing and has unwanted hair!!

Get Bikini Ready!

7 Jul

So, everyone that wears a swimsuit needs to make sure they are well-groomed.  If you don’t like to go get waxed, then I suggest trying my favorite hair-removal tool!  Bliss Bikini Perfect Deluxe Trimmer ($70 www.blissworld.com) is the best way to do at home grooming.  I love the epilator because it removes hair from the root and after using it for so long, my hair has stopped growing back.  I like to use it on both my bikini area and my underarms because it does not leave any red bumps or irritation.  Once you start using this regularly, the hair grows back thinner and slower.  Now, the truth is, the epilator can be painful…you do get used to it but if you are really sensitive, there are 4 other options that this product comes with so no worries, you will be taken care of!  I suggest this for travel or if you are a private person.  I like using this because it is cordless and I can do it “on my time” and I don’t have to make an appointment.  Don’t wait, this is a must to look like a supermodel at the beach this summer!!

Neck Tissue Repair

19 May

One of the things I worry about with the whole anti-aging process is having a neck that looks like a turkey!  Have you every noticed those women that have great skin on their faces and their necks look 100 years older?  I really want to avoid that in my old age…So, in try to avoid gravity and neck wrinkles, I have been using Kate Somerville Neck Tissue Repair Cream With Peptide K8 ($150 www.katesomerville.com).  The science behind Peptide K8 is that it is supposed to reduce the volume, density, and depth of fine lines and wrinkles.  I have seen this in a lot of products lately.  The other benefits of K8 is that it helps with texture and elasticity of the skin.  Other ingredients help firm and tone as well as make the skin soft and smooth.  One benefit is that the jojoba and macadamia nut help keep the skin moisturized and prevent water loss.  When putting this on you only want  to move this in an upward motion.  I even put this on my bust line because I figure I need all the help I can get!  You need one pump and move it in an upward motion toward your face to help activate the ingredients.  The smell is divine and subtle so you won’t be smelling it all day long.  If you are worried about looking saggy and wrinkly from the neck down, try this cream you won’t be disappointed!

Love Coco Perfume

7 Apr

I recently bought this perfume at Anthropologie and it smells sooo good but it also comes in the cutest packaging I have ever seen!  It is from The New York Collection Eau De Parfum and it is called Love Coco ($98 www.anthropologie.com).  It smells like coconut which is one of my favorite smells because it reminds me of summer!  It comes in a coffee to-go cup because it is supposed to resemble the “On-the-Go New Yorker”.  I think the packaging was really what sold me!  It is so adorable and it would make a great gift.  There are other scents available as well.  There is one called Love Carrots, it really smells like carrots but in a strange way it smells really good…hard to explain…you really have to smell it for yourself.  There is another called Love Vamp that is a floral scent.  There is really something for everyone.  If you need a gift for someone special or just a little treat for yourself, check these scents out!

Mama Knows Best

5 Feb

In the winter my hands get really dry from washing them all the time.  My nail beds and cuticles really suffer from the dry weather.  The best thing to use on them is Mama Bee Balm ($7 www.burtsbees.com).  It is an ointment that is actually for expecting mothers to put on their belly’s to help prevent stretch marks, but I use it for  pretty much everything.  I use it on my feet, hands and elbows to make them really soft.  It is 100% natural and fragrance free.  It comes in a really cute tin that you can keep in your purse or on your bedside table, so you can use this whenever you remember.  It is so great for treating dry or cracked skin and really is a wonderful cuticle cream.  The best thing is that you can find it at any drugstore and it is very affordable.  Everyone should have a tin of this, it is a beauty must have!

Tweeze With The Very Best

24 Jan

When you tweeze your brows you must use Tweezerman ($20-$25 www.tweezerman.com) tweezers.  These are slanted tweezers that can get every single hair out from your brow in no time, with zero pain!  They are so strong that you won’t spend time pulling and tugging at your hair.  The stainless steel is the basic color,  but they come in a lot of fun colors and fun prints.  You can even buy a pair covered in Swarovski Crystals, if you are willing to pay $100.  These are a MUST HAVE to add to your beauty arsenal!  They won’t make your eyebrows red after use and they are great for “touch-ups” in between waxes.  If you already have the slanted Tweezerman’s, try the pointed version, they are great for precision tweezing!  Throw out your old ones and invest in these, it will be one of the best things you have ever done!
