total beauty all about hair collection

Nelson j Argan Oil 7 Styling Conditioner – Full Sized Value $15 –A  styling conditioner, genius! My hair is very fine and curly which makes it pretty easy to damage even with one hot iron treatment. So far I really like this styling conditioner, its lightweight and leaves my hair soft,smooth and easy to comb.  I love that is not only conditions my hair but also is a heat protector, detangler, adds shine, protects color, smooths and gives my hair sunscreen protection.

Bosley Professional Strength Healthy Hair Rebalancing & Finishing Treatment – Full Sized Value $25 A summer must have this ultra light serum. Just work a bit over your scalp to prevent dry, itchy or overly oily skin. Then I can use a pump or two to protect my hair prior to styling and I like to warm one pump between my hands and run over my heat styled hair. 

Evolvh Ultrashine Shampoo and Conditioner – Values $7 and $8 respectively –  A great combo, this duo not only smells great but leaves my hair so soft and smooth. The deluxe sample size is perfect for my travel bag for weekend excursions. 

100% Pure Honey and Virgin Coconut Restorative Shampoo – single use sample packet – This is a very tiny sample, not quite enough to work through all my hair. But I love the scent and it did leave my hair feeling clean and fresh.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment with African Macadamia Oil – $1.50 Value – Dove has hit it out of the park with this new African Macadamia Hair Oil. The fragrance is out of this world, it smells like I should be rocking on a hammock under a palm tree. It’s one of the most light weight hair oils I have tried but still left my hair very soft and shiny and made the ends of my hair look great.

Bonus #1: $15 eSalon gift certificate – eSalon offers custom-formulated hair color, developer and professional coloring accessories, with personalized instructions for an easy at-home application. With this gift card, you get $15 off any haircare and custom color purchase of $20 or more.

Sponsored Post: Don’t miss out on anything with Gillette’s Venus Snap Razor!

Every girl’s dream is now complete as Gillette has finally created a razor which you can take on the go! With the Gillette Venus Snap, there is no need to miss out on life’s spontaneous moments due to prickly legs! To advertise this genius product, Gillette has teamed up with renown video blogger, Tessa Violet, and together they have created the Venus Snap song (warning- it’s very catchy!). Everyone can relate to the feeling when everything seems to be going great until you realize it’s been a questionable number of days since your last shave! Throughout the video, Tessa creates a jingle using a collection of these Oops-moments. While recounting these stories, Tessa showcases the convenience of having a razor which you can carry with you anytime and anywhere-making The Snap an essential component to every girl’s beauty survival kit!

Turn that missed spot into a chance to be in the spotlight! Tweet your “wish-I’d-shaved” moment to @Gillette Venus and video blogger Tessa Violet might turn it into a song #InASnap!

Venus Snap lets you experience instant smoothness on-the-go. With five curve-hugging blades and a portable compact, you’ll be ready for anything, anytime, anywhere.

Seriously how cute is this little razor! It could fit in your pocket!

Warmer weather calls for shorter hemlines and fun getaways! If your legs have been hiding behind layers all winter, find your perfect match razor that works best for your skin and lifestyle needs to ensure a smooth transition to spring and summer adventures. With Venus’ NEWEST additions, you can say goodbye to irritated skin, nicks and cuts and get the most out of your shave… and say hello to beautiful silky smooth legs!

Irritated skin and sexy legs just don’t go together. That’s why Venus set out to discover why 60% of women felt their sensitive skin was getting in the way of a close shave – and learned that women who believe they have sensitive skin may actually just experience irritation from using the wrong or dull razor.

For insta-smoothness for impromptu weekend getaways and rooftop soirees, the NEW Venus Snap with Embrace goes with you anywhere in its portable, stylish compact and features full-size Venus Embrace blades on a mini-handle. So whether you skipped a shave and need to be smooth for a spontaneous night out or missed a few hairs, tuck Snap in your bag for instant smoothness anytime, anywhere – just add water!

Palmer’s saved my skin this past weekend!

It’s that time of year again! Camping season!! Erin and I packed up our families and headed to the lake this past weekend where we literally spent 3 days in this lake right here, on that “party raft” below.

The sun was hot and intense, and I religiously applied sunblock every 3-4 hours. Even with all the extra protection, I STILL got sunburned, and my skin was in dire need of some relief.

IMG_3151

I whipped out Palmer’s Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion – and I’m not even kidding…. it was a LIFESAVER. The fast-absorbing, non-greasy and cocoa butter lotion was exactly what my skin needed! I/we used it so much, I have only a few applications left… which means now I MUST go buy more!

This lotion was shared with all the women/men in our campsite – and every single person said that they were going to have to go home and buy their own. Do yourself a favor…. GO GET THIS NOW.

I am also obsessed with their cocoa butter lip balm – it is heavenly. It helped heal my sunburned lips, and now I’m hooked!!

Between the harsh rays of the sun and the salt water ocean, your skin and locks can take a beating during the summer months. Leave it to the revitalizing and replenishing qualities of Palmer’s products to keep your body and tresses glowing! From keeping your lips smooth and protected, to reviving sun-starved locks, Palmer’s (a beach bag essential of Kristin Cavallari) has got to you covered. Please see below for some sun-loving items from Palmer’s perfect for the beach season.

Palmer’s has you COVERED this summer! Check out just some of their products below!

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lip Balm with SPF 15 – This lip-loving essential doesn’t tug or pull on delicate lip tissue, but instead leaves behind a supple and hydrated pout. Made with pure Cocoa Butter and ultra-moisturizing Vitamin E, the portable lip balm (great to throw in your travel tote) also glides on SPF 15 nourishment and protection for a relaxing and sun-safe day at the beach.

Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Strengthening Leave-In Conditioner – Treat your dull, damaged hair to an intensive blend of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Keratin and Silk Proteins, guaranteed to nurse sun-scarred hair back to health. This product helps control frizz, adds shine, reduces split ends, detangles and acts as a heat protectant all in one bottle!

Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Dry Oil Mist – This 8-oil blend mist works great as spot shine treatment or to quickly tame flyaways. For perfect “beach blown” hair this product makes the perfect go-to product giving dull, lifeless hair the perfect beach glow.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes – These dual-textured cleansing cloths easily remove dirt, oil and even waterproof makeup – perfect for washing away any remnant sunscreen after the beach. Each cloth is formulated for sensitive skin and enriched with skin-comforting ingredients such as Cocoa Butter, Chamomile and Aloe Vera that work to clean, moisturize and soothe skin simultaneously (great for refreshing after a long pre-vacation flight)!

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion – This fast-absorbing formula is a refreshing and convenient alternative to Palmer’s best-selling Cocoa Butter Formula lotion, while ensuring the same deep moisturizing benefits that the brand is known for. The quick spritz and pat process enables effortless, all-over application with exceptional coverage and immediate hydration from the harmony of Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and Shea Butter.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Deep Conditioning Protein Pack – When double dipping in the pool or ocean strips your hair of its natural moisture and leaves it dull and lifeless, this concentrated treatment repairs the follicle from the inside out, infusing it with strengthening protein and vitamins.

silk'n flash & go

Once the wedding is over it’s time to jet set somewhere warm and sunny with your new partner. If you don’t want to be fussing with razor burn or bikini bumps on your honeymoon check out the Silk’n Flash and Go.

The Flash and Go is really easy, I just  shower and shave my legs and dry off. As the kit suggested I started with the lowest energy level.  Watch the unit and wait until the lights on the side blink then I push the pulse button. It felt warm on my skin but the sensation left after just a moment. Once I got going I tried to not overlap and work in a pattern across my leg. The best part is no pain! Even with my sensitive skin after my whole treatment there was zero irritation.

To get maximum results, you want to do the treatments every 2 weeks. I am on my 3 round oftreatment and I can am starting to see results on my legs the hair seems thinner and to even be growing in a bit slower. The most dramatic improvement is on my arm pits. The hair is nearly gone and even better I can avoid razor burn.

The Flash & Go can handle your most sensitive areas including your bikini line, upper lip, under arms.. you name it the Flash & Go is ready to get rid of unwanted hair.  And I can do it in my home whenever it is most convenient for me. And with repeated treatments the hair will be gone! If you do laser hair removal the savings with the Flash & Go are even more significant.
