The most romantic thing anyone’s ever done for me is move mountains to spend more time with me.”

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.

Stimulate Hair Cell Renewal & Repair Split Ends for up to 7 Days Straight with White Sands The Cure 24/7 Serum

white sands the cure

I have been heat styling my hair more than normal lately and it has resulted in some split ends which are driving me crazy. Luckily I had the chance to check out White Sands The Cure 24/7 serum. After showering I apply a dime to quarter size amount from the mid section to the ends of my hair then style as usual.

You only need a tiny bit to cover your hair, I have  fine hair so I stick to the lower half only. It immediately binds the split ends so  when I am done styling my hair is smooth a flyaway free. This  works  for days I heat style or when I let my hair air dry, it keeps my natural curls smooth and frizz free.

If I have heat styled more than usual I like to emulsify a small amount in my hands and apply to my dry and styled hair to help repair and stop frizz. A great product for anyone fighting split ends and dry hair issues.

 

White Sands The Cure 24/7 Serum $29.99
White Sands Hair Care presents the re-launch of The Cure 24/7 ($29.99), a leave in treatment that repairs split ends and mends the cuticle through a scientific process called Cellular Bridging. This innovative process stimulates hair cell renewal with micro-gels so tiny they instantly fill cuticle cracks, leaving each strand smooth and repaired up to 7 days. It also serves as a 2nd skin to moisturize internally while repelling humidity on the outside.

As a split end camouflage creme, The Cure 24/7 provides visible results in just minutes. The name says it all; a treatment that can be done day or night, wet or dry. Plus, The Cure requires NO HEAT to work. With this Cellular Bridging Technology enhanced by a unique formula containing Orchid Flower Extract (Bulbophyllum sp), The Cure effortlessly mends split ends, repairs damaged hair fibers, restores internal moisture, while making tresses stronger, smoother, and shinier. Creating healthy, frizz and split end free hair has never been so convenient and simple.

Finally, a serum delivers nonstop conditioning and superior results 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The Cure 24/7 never sleeps always providing these advanced restoration properties without regard for time or the elements outside.

Suggested Retail Price: 1.7 oz, $29.99 via Fine Salons & whitesandsproducts.com

Dry Hair Application: Apply about a quarter size in your palms. Spread evenly from roots to ends by distributing The Cure 24/7 to the left, right, and back sections of hair. You can use daily if hair is extremely damaged until hair has reached its optimum healthy state.
Wet Hair Application: Shampoo and condition first. Towel dry and apply about the size of a quarter, distributing evenly through the entire head of hair (scalp not necessary). Comb through for even distribution and then apply styling aids as desired.
