New Contest! BIC Soleil Savvy Razor

I really like the new BIC Soleil Savvy razor, the handle has a nice grip so you don’t have to worry about it slipping. And the razor does an incredible job, leaving my skin smooth with no irritation or bumps. It cuts such a close shave I have noticed my legs stay smoother longer than with other razors. Best part is its disposable and really affordable!
NEW! BIC Soleil Savvy
  • Each BIC Soleil Savvy package contains one disposable handle and four refillable cartridges
  • The razor’s handle includes a rubber grip for added control
  • Tripple-Blade heads feature flexible blade technology and lubricating strips with Vitamin E
  • Pivoting heads are made to follow a woman’s contours and provide a super-close shave
  • Available at grocery stores, drug stores, and mass retailers for a suggested retail price of $7.49

 Bic secrets to getting a close shave:

Shave at night – Shaving removes dead skin cells and the superficial layer of skin. While this process is healthy, it reduces your skin’s defenses for a couple hours. Shaving at night gives your skin time to recover its strength and suppleness to resist irritation the next day.
Shave clean skin – To help prevent infection and bumps, make sure your skin is perfectly clean before you shave. Apply hot water beforehand or shave after showering. Warm humidity increases skin elasticity and softens your hair, making it easier to shave.
Apply shaving cream or gel – Use shaving cream or gel with Aloe Vera when shaving — it’s gentler on your skin than regular soap and can help lift hair. Lather the cream or gel, then leave it on for two minutes prior to shaving. Once your hair is softened, the razor will glide more easily over skin.
Use a sharp blade – Change your blades regularly, especially if you have sensitive skin. On sensitive areas like your bikini line and underarms, shaving with a dull blade can result in red spots.

Get The Look: Zoe Saldana’s Undone Ponytail, The Words LA Premiere.

Celebrity hairstylist artist Mara Roszak created Zoe Saldana’s look for last night’s The Words premiere in Los Angeles. Taking inspiration from Zoe’s lace Ellie Saab dress, Roszak created an “undone and sexy, yet effortless low messy ponytail” for the red carpet.

Get Zoe’s look in three simple steps:

Step 1 – Prep and Texturize
Achieving the undone quality of Zoe’s hair relies on creating texture while preventing flyaways. Start by evenly applying John Frieda Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse ($5.99 at drugstores) through towel-dried hair to tame frizz, boost shine and build texture. For added volume, spray roots with a texturizing spray and rough dry.

Step 2 – Secure the Style
To create the perfect natural wavy texture, loosely braid hair and let it dry. Once hair is completely dry, take out the braid and break up the waves by running your fingers through your hair. Gently tease the crown for a bit of height. Next, pull hair from each side of the face to the back of the head, allowing one section of hair to overlap the other and pin in place with bobby pins. Continue this all the way down the back until all the hair is wrapped into a pony tail shape. Allow the pieces around the face to naturally fall out for a soft feminine look.

Step 3 – Polish and Perfect
To finish the look, mist a thin coat of John Frieda Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray ($5.99 at drugstores) in an even, all-around motion.


Cool Down with Arbor Mist Frozen Cocktails!

 

As a member of SheSpeaks, I was chosen to participate in this review for Arbor Mist.

I am new to the drink pouches and was really excited to give these a try. These are available in most grocery stores and run $1.99 per pouch. I love wine but when its really hot I crave something cool and icy and the Arbor Mist Frozen Cocktails are perfect! We hit the beach for the long weekend and I pulled these from the freezer and we were able to enjoy ice cold, frozen cocktails on the sand! Heaven!

Just toss them in the freezer for about 5 hours then squeeze to loosen and pour the slushy mixture into your glass and enjoy! The mixture is a fine consistency which you can eat with a spoon or straw. I like to let mine sit for a minute or two so its easier to drink. They are a little on the sweet side, I hope they add a low sugar option but for a cool treat on a hot day they are perfection.

My favorite the Blackberry Merlot!

Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails are a new way to enjoy great-tasting wine with a splash of fruit, frozen! Great for a backyard party, pool day, barbecue or casual get-together with friends and family – simply freeze, squeeze and enjoy. Arbor Mist Frozen Wine Cocktails require no mixing of ingredients, ice or blenders. Simply place the liquid pouch in the freezer for five hours, gently massage, tear open the top, squeeze to pour into a glass and enjoy a smooth frozen wine cocktail with all the great taste and same alcohol level as Arbor Mist Wines.

I was sent 2 each of the three flavors that Arbor Mist offers:
Blackberry Merlot
Bursting with aromas of ripe blackberries and fresh guava, this naturally flavored frozen Merlot adds a new twist to the classic Arbor Mist wine. This was the first one I tried…delicious! It was very thick and sweet.
Strawberry White Zinfandel
Strawberry White Zinfandel is redefined in this new spin on an Arbor Mist classic. Aromas of fresh-picked strawberries create an enticing bouquet that integrates perfectly with this well-balanced and smooth, naturally flavored frozen wine. I love strawberry drinks, this one was sweet too and tasted fruity.
White Pear Pinot Grigio
Refreshingly smooth, this frozen wine has a taste that is rich with natural flavors of ripe pear and hints of apple and citrus.
