Review: Silk’n Swirl Facial Brush

CYMERA_20130829_105442

The lovely reps for Silk’n were kind enough to send me their Silk’n Swirl Face Cleansing Brush and Cleanser for review. I love facial cleanser brushes but a lot of the popular brands are over $100 which can be hard to justify when you are shopping on a budget. I was excited to try a facial cleanser brush that was more affordable and from a reputable company.

I really like the size of the brush, the handle is smaller than some of the others and was just perfect. The brush itself is really soft and was gentle on my skin but was great at deep cleaning and getting all the dirt and makeup off. Its also water resistant which is great, I love using mine at night in the shower to deep clean my face before I put on my night creams. The only issue I have with the brush is the batteries, it would be nice if it was rechargeable but at this price point I can understand standard batteries. The way I found around it is a good pair of rechargeable batteries so I am not having to spend money on new batteries every time I wear out a pair.

 

Silk’n Swirl Face Cleaning Power Brush $29
The Silk’n Swirl, a dual-speed facial brush, features soft, non-abrasive, micro bristles to refresh and exfoliate your skin, and remove dirt, oil, and makeup. The ergonomic handle and intuitive setting panel allows you to easily redirect the brush rotation, so you can get a relaxing, deep clean resembling a spa treatment in your home. Its deep penetration will make the Swirl a staple in your beauty regimen, and its gentle touch will mean that you can pair it with your favorite facial cleanser and use daily.

I don’t own a Silk’n FaceFX so I can’t speak to how this works as a pre-treatment but I did use it as a face wash with my Silk’n Swirl facial cleansing brush. The cleanser is really light and I love how refreshing it feels on my skin. It left my skin feeling really clean without drying it out, it also worked great with the Silk’n Swirl face brush.

Bigger Breasts In A Bottle?

Orico-Full-Cup

When I first read about Orico London’s Full Cup I was intrigued I had loved their Streetwise Face Wash and Makeup Remover so much I was dying to see if Full Cup could live up to its name. Their PR rep was kind enough to send me a bottle of Full Cup to review and share my thoughts with you.

I was not looking to get a huge new pair of knockers but after nursing my kids and losing weight my lovely lady lumps well they weren’t so lovely. More like sad lady bean bags. I have been using Full Cup for a little over a month and I’m pretty impressed.

The first thing you notice when you apply Full Cup, is the amazing scent the lemon grass and citrus is so fresh and helps wake me up. I like to apply it right after I shower in the morning and a little right before bed. The oil is very light and absorbs right away leaving absolutely zero residue. I like using it at night it leaves my skin smooth and plumped and I don’t get creases on my chest while I sleep.

So does it make your chest bigger? Now if you are an A or B and start slathering this on don’t expect to wake up looking like Pam Anderson that just isn’t possible (without surgery). But it will  make your breasts fuller. I think its kind of like fluffing your pillows. You know you have that one couch pillow that gets all squished and flat then you shake it up and it looks nice and fluffy again? Well that is what Full Cup does for your boobs minus the violent shaking. I have noticed an improvement in the texture of my chest (good bye crepey skin) and the skin is firmer and fuller. Smoother, crease and crepe free skin and fuller breasts, yep Orico London has done it again!
Orico London Full Cup Bust & Neck Enhancing Elixir $47
The clinical active in organic Full Cup Bust & Neck Enhancing Elixir has been proven to enhance breasts by 2 to 4 cm after 6 weeks of use* while improving skin quality. The all-natural breast enhancement oil contains powerful natural moisturizers and antioxidants which intensify its action by toning and firming the bust and neck area. All yours and unashamedly natural!

- With a clinically proven bioactive to help enhance breasts after 6 weeks of treatment
- Mukul bark oleoresin active is clinically proven to help maintain skin tonicity and re-plump breast tissue by promoting lipid storage, firming the skin and ironing out wrinkles
- A potent mix of plant oils and vitamin-rich antioxidants smooth away wrinkles and soften the skin
- Citrus-scented essential oils complete with an uplifting effect on the senses

Check out Mally’s Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo!

mally-effortless-airbrush

Mally Roncal, Celebrity Makeup Artist and President / Founder of Mally Beauty has your looks for this summer! She’s shared three tips with Make Her Up, and I thought I’d pass them along! I was sent the Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo in order to review for this post*.

Here are three looks to try out that are fun, bright and right on season:

Bright Pink Lips: Because pink is so bright, you want to make sure that you prevent the color from moving around on your lips. On dry lips, use a lipstick first and follow with the liner after to get precision. Try Mally Beauty Bright Lip Kit in Frisky Fuchsia. You can add a gloss for extra shine.

Sparkly, Bronzy, Smokey Eye: Simply line the whole eye area using a Shadow Stick and then blend with your fingertips. Try Mally Beauty Evercolor Shadow Stick in Saddle Shimmer. Apply a gold shade in the crease of the eye and bottom lash to soften the look. Complete the look by applying at least three coats of mascara – try Waterproof during the summer months. Try Mally Beauty Waterproof Volumizing Mascara.

Bronzed Skin: Use a bronzer that is one to two shades darker than your natural skin tone. Apply it where the sunlight will naturally hit your face, like behind the ears, along the jawline, across the top of the forehead, of the nose, cheeks, and tip of the chin. Try Mally Beauty Believable Bronzer. Finish off the look by adding more light to the face with a highlighting powder. But, only apply it to your cheekbones. Try Mally Beauty Effortless Airbrush Highlighter and Blush Duo.

This is a gorgeous color, isn’t it! It’s such a beautiful shimmery/summery shade. I love that they provide the brush to go with! A+!
