A New Kind of Clean with Bioderma Micellar Water

CYMERA_20160809_161226

Micellar water is still rather new to the US but its taking medicine cabinets by storm.The most famous micellar water, Bioderma’s Sensibio H2O can wash away my day to day makeup and even wipes away  waterproof mascara like its nothing. A Fashion week staple  you can now clean up like the models in the comfort of your own home.

My brain can’t comprehend how something that looks, and feels like water can clean so well but it does. I have tried a few micellar waters and really love the Bioderma Sensibio H2O. The formula is super gentle on my sensitive eyes and skin and still effortlessly wipes away all my makeup. I love how clean and refreshing it feels and how quick and easy it is. The small bottle is perfect for your overnight or gym bag.

Protect Your Skin with Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Broad Spectrum SPF 50+

CYMERA_20160801_133102

A summer must have Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Mineral Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ . The formula is a very lightweight and has a light universal tint that helps even out my skin tone. I love that it provides such great protection for my skin and the tint means I can skip foundation which is great on hot summer days. I spent the last week camping and most of our days were spent swimming in the lake. I applied the Kiehl’s Super Fluid every morning and reapplied throughout the day. And not a single hint of sunburn on my face, which is pretty amazing for a very fair skinned person like myself spending 7 hours in the water in the sun.

You can see from the swatch below the slight hint of color, and how thin the texture is. It absorbed instantly and left my face feeling smooth and clean no oily or heavy feeling.  And I really like that this uses a physical sunblock instead of some that are loaded with chemicals. I had a few friends try this over the weekend and they all were fans. Light enough to wear daily and strong enough to protect your skin all summer long. Don’t miss this one!

Cool Down with Greek Yoghurt!

korres sleeping facial

One of the best products I have tried this year. With combo skin it can be hard to find the balance of moisture without going overboard or skimping either way creating more oil. I had never tried a “sleep facial” and I was interested to see how this would feel. The product is light and fluffy like a mousse it has an amazing fresh yogurt smell and when you put it on your skin it has a cooling effect. It absorbed quickly and my face felt smooth and moisturized and fresh. The next morning I wake up and my skin feels great and the best part no oily feeling or the need to immediately run and wash my face.

The change in my skin in one night was enough to sell me. With continued use my skin is feeling better and my pores are starting to shrink up a bit. After two weeks I have noticed my skin is less oily all day and never oily in the morning. Thank you Korres for a great moisturizer that doesn’t overwhelm my combo skin!

Introducing Simply Straight + Contest!!

simply straight

To tell you the truth I was pretty sure this was another gimmick product. I have tried so many As Seen On TV beauty products and most of them fail to live up to half the claim. The Simply Straight brush had been sitting by my desk for over a week, I wanted to try it but it seemed like it would take too much time and probably just not work.

CYMERA_20160726_152615

So last night I was catching up with a little Big Brother online and thought, heck I’m just sitting here. I will just try the brush while I sit here and see if it even does anything. I grabbed a quick before snap just in case. Then started my episode and plugged in my brush. I was shocked how quick it heated up and love the screen that shows exactly what temp its at. Once the brush was heated I ran it through my hair in sections as I sat watching my show. No mirror, or any other kind of brush just the Simply Straight. When the commercial came on I strolled into the bathroom ready to see half curly, half straight hair. Even with blow drying and a flat iron I have a hard time getting my hair perfectly smooth. So no way a brush was going to even come close to straightening my hair.

(BEFORE)

Well lo and behold I look in the mirror and my hair is straight. Like pin straight, its not hot, doesn’t smell fried and the usual wavy bits were just smooth and straight. The craziest part this took only 5 minutes, without a mirror and without really an effort besides a brushing motion. I was shocked how well it worked, I put it in a ponytail for bed last night and woke up this morning. When I removed the elastic my hair was still straight! That never happens my curl always fight back at night. I have to say I was a skeptical as they come and they changed my mind. The Simply Straight brush straightened my hair without products, or damaging it with excessive heat. I rarely straighten my hair due to the damage it causes and the time to get it straight but will be doing it a lot more often, due to the amazing brush.
