Pacifica Kale Detox Cleaning Face Wash

CYMERA_20170306_141453

I ran out of my normal face wash and decided it was time to try something new. Spent a bit of time browsing at Target and stumbled upon this Pacifica Kale Detox face wash. I love their fragrances but hadn’t tried the skincare yet and was interested to check it out. And Kale Detox just makes me believe I will wash my face and look 10 years younger, no pressure right?

The formula is a thin clear gel, its fairly thin and my only complaint is this formula would be much better in a pump bottle. The wash itself is great, its was easy to work into a lather and left my skin feeling so clean without drying it out. Its a great wash for anyone with combo to oily skin looking for a deep cleanser that won’t dry out your skin.

Introducing Thrive Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner

CYMERA_20170222_161126

 

So they got me, one of those darn Facebook ads I usually ignore drew me in. They sucked me in with the promise of a gentle but waterproof eyeliner. And not only were the reviews amazing for every product purchased they donate one to a woman in need. How great is that? Down the rabbit hole I went and out of the 6 shades I decided to go with the black. Shipping was pretty quick and I received my new eyeliner within the week. Now was the big question was it really that great or did I get sucked in by good advertising?

Well luckily for me the Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner lives up to the hype. In terms of coverage I would say it lies right between a gel liner and a pencil. It has the control of a standard pencil which is good for wobbly hands like mine. But it glided on like a liquid eyeliner and instantly made my eyes pop. I have been using it for about a week now and I can say I love it  more each day. The eyeliner stays put all day, no smudging, flaking or disappearing acts. It looks as great at the end of the day as it did at the start. But my favorite part is how gentle it is. I have the most wimpy sensitive eyes and I would say over half the products I try leave them irritated, red and watery. I have used this liner on my waterline above my lash line, with no issues at all.

You can see the photo below, top is bare eyes, 2nd is one line of Infinity Waterproof Eyeliner and the 3rd with a coat of mascara. They have me hook, line and sinker I have a feeling this is the start of a beautiful friendship/obsession. This was my first experience with Thrive Cosmetics and I can’t wait to try more.

Tips and Tricks

Strong, Waterproof Hold
Keep eye closed for 30 seconds after applying to let eyeliner set and keep color from transferring to your eyelid.

Fuller-Looking Lashes
Dot eyeliner between upper lashes, working color into your lash line. Blend lightly with smudge tip to create the illusion of lush, fuller-looking lashes. This technique is also called tightlining.

Cool Cat Eye
Starting with a freshly sharpened eyeliner point, draw a clean line beginning at the inner corner of your eyelid and follow the lash line to the outer edge, extending just past your last lash to create a wing.

Smoky Eye
Apply eyeliner at a flat angle along your upper and lower lash lines, beginning at the inner corner and working your way out to create a bold, thick line. Blend with smudge tip for smoldering color.

Sultry Shadow
Use soft, gentle strokes to apply color to your eyelid. Smudge with your finger or brush before color sets.

New! Dove Shower Foam Deep Moisture Foaming Body Wash

dove surprise box

 

The mailman had me as excited as Christmas morning last week when I saw a giant box from Dove. I pop open the box and a balloon floats out, made me chuckle. Such a fun way to share their new product, Dove Foaming Body Wash.

If you have ever been to my house or read this blog for long you will know one of my longstanding obsessions is Dove Body Wash. I regularly have two or more scents in my shower. I love how clean it leaves my skin but the best part is the hydration. Dove Body Wash is one of the few shower cleansers that leaves my skin smelling amazing and so hydrated.

Enter the new Dove Foaming body wash, I was as excited to try this as if the box had been filled with chocolate and wine. Ok, maybe that would be a tie but so far no boxes of chocolate and wine have arrived so Dove wins. The new foaming body was is everything I love about the regular body wash plus foam! (Ok another obsession of mine, foaming products they just make me happy). The body wash smells amazing and the foam as you can see below is creamy and fluffy as whipped cream.

I think the foaming wash leaves my shower and skin smelling even better than the standard body wash and I like that it seems to go a little farther since the wash foams up so much. Can’t wait to stock up on all the other scents of the new foaming body wash, I think I need another shower shelf!

Spoil yourself this Valentine’s Day with Lush Bubble Bars

lush french kiss bubble bar

If you or your sweetie need a little TLC this Valentines Day look no further than LUSH. I have always been a fan of their bath bombs but recently have become hooked on their Bubble Bars. They smell just as amazing and one bar can be broken and used for several baths and still create more amazing bubbles than you can shake a stick at.A few of my favorites are Big Band, , The Comforter and French Kiss. I love the tint they give the water and even better the amazing scent that fills the room and leaves my skin feeling and smelling amazing.

This weekend I was at the coast and had to bring a LUSH bath bomb and bubble bar to get the most out of the big jacuzzi tub. You can see below how much silky smooth bubbles come from one bar, it was like living in a cloud. That and a glass of wine and I have a reason for living again. Grab some now for yourself and spoil someone in your life that needs a little pick me up.

LUSH A French Kiss Bubble Bar
A decadent bath for deep relaxation
There are a few ways to French kiss, but we like to keep it clean by French Kiss-ing with a luxurious bubble bath. The herbal scents of lavender, rosemary and thyme are blended with essential oils from the hills of sun-soaked Provence to create a bubbly bar that helps to calm the mind for more restful sleep. It’s even topped with a sprig of lavender to remind you to lie back into the serene purple waters and soak up all the relaxation.

 

You can find LUSH Bubble bars at your local LUSH store or online at www.LUSH.com.
