Too Faced Better Than False Lashes Review

Too Faced has won me over with Better Than False Lashes! I love the look of false lashes but they take me forever to apply and always feel heavy on my eyes.  The Too Faced system is incredibly easy to use just apply one coat of the mascara, then apply the nylon fibers, one last coat of the mascara and voila you have some amazing lashes. I have had two separate friends think I was wearing false lashes! A great way to get a dramatic, sexy look for date night or girls night out.

Murad Introduces MuraSol Antioxidant Defense Technology for Sunscreens

The dog days of summer are just around the corner, the beach is calling your name and getting bikini ready is top of mind. Just in time for the heat waves to hit across the nation this June, Murad is launching MuraSol™ Antioxidant Defense, an advanced suncare technology that will be rolled into all Murad products containing SPF protection.

What is MuraSol Antioxidant Defense Technology?
MuraSol is a blend of powerful antioxidants featuring a unique encapsulation technology that penetrates the skin’s top layers to create a protective barrier of free radical neutralizers, providing a whole new level of environmental protection. These neutralizers release slowly over time, helping protect skin from free radical damage and creating long sustaining defense against harmful UV rays.

By providing skin with protection against both broad spectrum UV rays and free-radicals, Murad sunscreen products featuring new MuraSol technology offer a complete system to defend skin from the signs of environmental aging and help preserve a glowing, youthful complexion.

A great sunscreen, it doesn’t run or irritate my eyes. I love the matte finish.

· Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA +++ (1.7 FL OZ, $31) prevents signs of premature aging caused by environmental exposure by delivering high SPF protection and providing intense hydration with an oil-free matte finish. This lightweight, easily absorbed formula protects and restores the appearance of healthy skin.

A great water resistant sunscreen that protects my fair skin and never runs. I am very active in the summer and have a hard time finding good sun protection that wont run into my eyes when I am biking or hiking. I love the Murad line it stays put and really protects my fair skin from the sun.

· Murad Water Resistant Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA +++ (4.3 FL OZ, $30) is a long-lasting, high SPF water resistant formula that protects skin with three active sunscreens. Pomegranate Extract enhances sun protection and prevents free radical damage. The patented Skin Repair System protects skin elasticity to maintain firmness while broad spectrum sunscreen delivers maximum UVA/UVB protection for active lifestyles.

Love, love, love this product. The tint is the perfect shade to even out my skin tone and save me having to use makeup. Its a great everyday product protects my skin and the oil free formula never clogs my pores.

Murad Oil-Free Sunblock Sheer Tint SPF 15 (1.7 Fl OZ, $26) Shields skin and creates a smooth, even complexion. Protects from sun and free radical damage and balances skin tone with a light, natural tint.

Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA +++ and Murad Water Resistant Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA +++ will be available on Murad.com, Murad Inclusive Health Spa®, salons and spas June 2012 and at Sephora and Ulta July 2012.
