Rituals has brought the sugar scrub to a whole new level with their Sakura Scrub. It is hands down the best sugar scrub I have ever used. First thing you notice upon opening is how heavenly it smells. I have the Organic Rice and Cherry Blossom and I can’t get enough of the scent.

The organic sugar crystals keep their grit with the oil and work wonders on dry, dull skin.  A perfect balance of sugar and oils The Rituals Sakura Scrub buffs without pain and the oil softens skin without leaving it feeling greasy. With just one use my skin is so incredibly soft and smells like heaven.

L’Occitane Aromacholgie Repairing Mask

loccitane hair mask

With highlighted, fine, naturally curly hair I tend to have a real issue with dryness. And with the long, warm days out in the sun my hair gets even further dried out. I have found the perfect beauty solution to cure my dry hair blues. The L’Occitane Aromachologie Repairing Mask has worked wonders on my hair. The mask is very rich and creamy think shea butter texture so you don’t need a lot of product for a really thorough application.

After towel drying, I apply the mask and work through to the ends. I like to  cover my hair with a shower cap and wrap my head in a towel to let the product really go to work. I leave it 15 minutes or sometimes for a few hours and just let it penetrate and repair my dry locks. The mask smells amazing and leaves my curls  hydrated without weighing them down. It’s amazing how great my hair feels after just one use. Shinier, bouncier curls and it not only looks amazing but leaves my hair smelling amazing. Grab one now and keep your hair looking great all summer!

Get The Look: Emma Stone in Revlon at the ‘Aloha’ Los Angeles Premiere

I can’t wait to see this!

GLOBAL REVLON BRAND AMBASSADOR EMMA STONE AT ‘ALOHA’ LOS ANGELES PREMIERE
REVLON Global Brand Ambassador Emma Stone attended the Los Angeles premiere for her new movie ‘Aloha’ on Wednesday, May 27th 2015. Inspired by Emma’s elegant pearl dress, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Rachel Goodwin created a soft, ethereal look enhanced by a subtle pink lip.

“I wanted Emma’s makeup look to have a very soft and luminous quality to it. I used all cream and taupe shades on her eyes, cheeks and lips to pick up the iridescence of the pearls in her dress.”

Goodwin used the following products for Emma’s red carpet look:

FACE:

  • Skin was prepped with REVLON Nearly Naked Makeup in Vanilla (SRP: $9.99) for a natural sheer base that allowed Emma’s freckles to come through.
  • Goodwin highlighted the cheekbones with REVLON PhotoReady Skinlights Face Illuminator in Pink Light (SRP: $12.99) to create a soft glow followed by REVLON Cream Blush in Charmed (SRP: $12.99) to warm Emma’s cheeks.

EYES:

  • To create depth, Goodwin started with REVLON ColorStay 16 Hour Eye Shadow Quad in Addictive (SRP: $7.99) and blended shades #2 and #3 across the lower lid and in the crease.
  • To continue to highlight the eye, the lightest pearl cream shade from REVLON Illuminance Crème Shadow in Skinlights (SRP: $6.99) was applied on the lids, brow bone, and inner corners to keep the look soft and ethereal.
  • To finish, lashes were curled with the REVLON Gold Series Titanium Coated Lash Curler (SRP: $9.99) and both the upper and lower lashes were brushed with two coats of REVLON Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara in Black (SRP: $7.99).
  • Brows were defined and set with REVLON Brow Fantasy in Dark Blond (SRP: $7.50).

LIPS:

  • To complete the look, lips were outlined and filled with REVLON ColorStay Lip Liner in Natural (SRP: $7.99) and topped with one coat of REVLON Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in HD Smoky Topaz (SRP: $8.99) to create a slight shimmer.
