  • Nubar Alter Ego Nail Polish (retail price – $5.00) -I love this polish! The base color is clear so the glitter is beautiful but subtle. I love how it looked and how quick it dried.
  • La Fresh travel lite Facial Cleansing Wipes (retail $19.99 48 count) – I really love these facial wipes. They work great removing makeup or left my skin feeling clean and fresh without any residue.
  • Model Co Illusion Lip Pencil (retail $20 FULL SIZE) – A great lip liner, the pencil is really creamy and easy to apply. The nude color is a great base for dark red, berry lip looks.

BB5 Nov review 2013

 

2013 November’s box samples:

  • Secret’s Clinical Strength Deodorant ($7.99). This formula is the  “completely clean” scent and is an invisible solid. I like that it doesn’t leave marks on any of my clothes and keeps me smelling fresh and clean even after working out.
  • Montagne Jeunesse Glacial Clay Spa Mask ($2.49). I love a good face mask and was excited to try this one as its  clay infused sheet mask.  My skin felt so soft and smooth after using it. This would make a great stocking stuffer!

  • BellaPiere Cosmetics Shimmer Powder ($14).I have a hard time with loose powders but found this actually pretty easy to use. It stuck to my shadow brush during application and I was able to apply without making a mess. The color is really pigmented and lasted all day.
  • Aveeno Calming Body Wash (sample size) I love the lavender and chamomile scent and I like how it cleans and leaves my skin really soft. I will definitely be buying more of this!
  • Body Drench Lip Drench Eucalyptus Moisturizing Lip Balm ($4.99).  I love anything  eucalyptus or peppermint and this lip balm is my new fave. It feels great on my lips and has really helped keep them from getting chapped in the cold.

In each Beauty Box 5 you will find list of the samples, the full size price, description and product’s website. I am really enjoying Beauty Box 5 so far! The sizes are really awesome as well! For $12, you can’t beat it!

New Wonder Woman’s Beauty Secrets

gal-gadot-fast-and-furious

 

Just last week the news was released that Israeli actress, Gal Gadot, will play the role of Wonder Woman opposite Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill in the upcoming movie Batman vs. Superman. While the former Miss. Israel model turned actress is clearly stunning, she let us in on a few beauty secrets to keep her skin and hair looking flawless.

Gal said, “With the type of work I do, it is extremely important to take care of, and maintain my hair and my skin. Getting my hair styled and make up done several times a week can definitely affect the health of my hair and skin! My top 5 favorite beauty products are:”

1. Vine Vera’s Resveratrol High-Potency Vitamin Cream from the Cabernet Collection: I love using this cream because it helps keep my skin looking hydrated and glowing all day long.

2. Vine Vera’s Resveratrol Phyto-Elevating Mask: This mask deep cleans my skin. My skin feels so refreshed and radiant after every use.

3. Kerastase Caviar Hair Mask: This mask helps hydrate and nourish my hair. It makes my hair soft, shiny and smelling amazing.

4. Dior Air Flash Spray Foundation: This is a spray foundation that I absolutely love. When there’s no time for make up the easiest solution is to spray and go. It also gives great coverage which is a must!

5. Hypnotic Poison by Christian Dior: This is my signature smell; I won’t go a day without using it!


Ditch the Winter Itch with Soothing Skin Care

In an effort to help raise funds for disaster relief in the Philippines, this Wednesday, December 11th, the skin care brand Sebamed will be donating $1 to the Red Cross Philippines Typhoon Haiyan Relief fund for every new Twitter follower, @SebamedUSA. The donation will run a full 24 hours, from midnight to midnight, in the hopes of rising 10,000 dollars!

MakeHerUp just followed @SebamedUSA, please join us and help raise money for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan!

 

Dry, crackly, irritated skin is your body’s way of sending an SOS signal. These symptoms, most commonly known as the “Winter Itch,” are often a result of Xerotic Eczema, a condition caused by excessive water loss from the top layers of the skin.

When it comes to Xerotic Eczema an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The dermatologist developed skin care brand, Sebamed, has launched an Anti-Dry Collection with head-to-toe products formulated at pH 5.5, the exact pH of hydrated, healthy skin. Incorporating these moisturizing miracles into your daily routine can optimize skin’s protective barrier to retain moisture during dry weather and repel environmental irritants that exacerbate dry skin.

For long days out on a coldy, windy day this is a must have. This time of year I love snowshoeing and sledding with the kids but after a day out playing in the snow my face always feels a bit tender. After my first snowshoe trip this year my skin was definitely feeling the effects of the icy cold wind. I used the Sebamed Anti-Dry Night Intensive Cream after I washed my face and it felt like heaven. My skin absorbed it quickly and felt so hydrated. I woke up the next morning and my skin looked great and no wind burn! This is definitely a must have this winter.

Sebamed Anti-Dry Night Intensive Cream $23.95
Recover and restore your skin after a long day. This cream is rich in phytosterols (3%), jojoba oil and glycerin to protect, smooth, calm and regenerate the skin without clogging pores. The intensive and rich properties of this Night Cream stimulate the skin’s own renewal process overnight for fresher skin by morning. The pH value of 5.5 promotes the skin’s own acid protective barrier against dehydration and irritants. Dermatological tests have proven that Sebamed Anti-dry Day Cream used in combination with the Night Cream can restore the essential moisture balance of dry skin.

Sebamed-Anti-Dry-Derma-Soft-Wash-Emulsion-187270

All 3 of my kids have sensitive skin and this time of year its a constant battle to keep their skin from getting dry and itchy. I started using the Sebamed Anti-Dry Wash Emulsion and after the first use noticed a huge improvement. My youngest had really itchy skin with dry patched and after the first bath with this his skin was improving. After 3 days my kids all have soft, hydrated skin without any dry, itchy patches. A great body wash for anyone who deals with dry, itchy skin in the winter months.

Sebamed Anti-Dry Wash Emulsion $22.95
Replenish and balance moisture content to relieve dry, irritated skin with its amino acid and lipid-enriched formula. This soap-free and nutrient-rich formula works to hydrate and restore the skin’s equilibrium, leaving skin smooth and supple.
