Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum

jimmy-choo-perfume2

 

The Jimmy Choo fragrance is a floral scent which are usually not my favorite. But I love the scents of Orchid and Tiger Lilly mixed  with the sweet toffee scent. It goes on strong at first but the dry down is beautiful. And I am amazed how long this scent lasts. I can apply it in the morning and still smell it at the end of the night. It is a bit on the spendy side but you just need one spritz to last all day so the price ends up being on par with fragrances I need to use multiple times in one day.

The roller ball is a great way to try this fragrance out and see how it works for you. Head over to Nordstrom soon, this fragrance is on sale right now on their website.

Murad Launches Two New Acne Products

Murad is one of my favorite skincare brands, they make effective products that are priced great for how well they work. They have just launched some great new Acne products, and so far I am really impressed. Check out the items below to see my review of each.

 Murad_AcneSpotFastFix

When they say Fast Fix they are kidding. I had a blemish coming in and I applied a dot of this before bed. I figured in the morning it might be a bit better but still in progress. To my amazement the little sucker was gone! I have used this three times and each one it has got rid of the blemish before it reared its ugly head. Truly a great acne product.

Acne Spot Fast Fix $16
Prior to this launch, Murad steered clear of using Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) because of the irritation it typically causes. Using a breakthrough in skincare technology, Murad is launching its first-ever product containing BPO because we finally found a way to incorporate this effective ingredient without compromising the health and integrity of the skin.

This technology is a unique new delivery system, called Hydrophase, and along with Micronized Benzoyl Peroxide, it allows the BPO to penetrate the skin and provide powerful spot treatment without the irritation that is commonly associated with BPO. Acne Spot Fast Fix helps reduce pimple severity in as little as 1 day* and can be added to any existing regimen.

Murad_AcneClearingSolution

This is one of the fasted working acne products I have tried. At the first hint of a blemish I apply the treatment and by the next day the skin is clearing instead of getting worse. I really like how mild this is, it has not caused any irritation or dryness. And I have noticed it has started to clear up redness from prior breakouts.

Acne Clearing Solution: $39
This is a full face treatment product that is meant for daily use and is designed to immediately fight breakouts without causing purging. Featuring Salicylic Acid combined with other advanced acne-fighting ingredients such as Queen of Meadow Extract and Tea Tree Oil, Acne Clearing solution not only treats and prevent breakouts, it fast-tracks the healing process by minimizing dryness, redness and peeling. 96% of users saw clearer skin in 72 hours*

Murad_AcneStarterKit

If you are new to Murad or want a complete acne line this is the way to go. The Murad Clarifying cleanser is perfect for troubled skin. The gel formula is a great wash for removing all the dirt and grime to prevent break outs. You get the two amazing treatment products. This kit is rounded out with a great oil control mattifier to keep your skin looking great all day.

Acne Starter Kit $30
Why you need it:
Clinically proven to rapidly clear breakouts and restore smooth skin without dryness or irritation.

Balanced Guru Astringent Masque

balanced_guru

I have been hearing about Balanced Guru for a few months now so I jumped at the chance to review one of their face masques. I received the Astringent Masque to review, a masque designed to detoxifying oily/congested skin.

The first thing you notice with the balanced guru masques is that they come in powder form. It might seem odd at first but its actually quite cool. You just add the powder to a small bowl then activate it with water, toner, raw honey or yogurt. How great you can customize each treatment?

The masque smells amazing and the oatmeal and lemon elements are very soothing. I chose to mix mine with water and did a 50/50 mix and got the perfect consistency.  The masque tingled at first but not in a painful way it was very refreshing. I left it on for a little over 15 minutes. Once I rinse it off my skin feels so revitalized. I can’t wait to try this masque with other liquids to get a whole new experience.

And if your not sure which masque is the right one for you balance guru makes it easy offering small 1oz tubs of the products. Making it easy and affordable to try multiple items.
