This looks like a great set but $230 is a large chuck of change. Now I know there are women who can buy beauty products without every worrying about sticker shock. Unfortunately I was not born with a silver spoon and we have yet to find a rich long lost uncle. So what is your biggest beauty splurge you have spent on one item?

It lives up to the hype! UPDATED with discount for Makeherup readers!


I wrote a review on the Jonathan Anton shower filter a few weeks ago and then a reader was kind enough to tell me about the manufacturer Aquasana. The reviews looked great but I have never had problems with my water and thought it probably wouldn’t make a difference. I decided to contact Aquasana and knowing they have a great product they sent a shower filter for me to try. I admit I was skeptical putting it in most products don’t live up to there promises.

I was pleasantly surprised when it was really easy to install, and it has several water options and really good pressure. I am a shower multi-tasker I wash my face and brush my teeth in the shower so it was time for a full test drive. With my first shower I could immediately tell the water smelled better and when I was rinsing my face and teeth I noticed the water tasted good. Better yet 3 days in my hair started getting smoother and when I rinsed my shampoo out it seemed really clean with no build up. I have now been using it a week and my hair has become considerably less frizzy and it’s so shiny I can’t stop staring at it.

My skin has also been softer and it doesn’t seem as dry as it did with my old shower head, I could really tell the difference after shaving. I love the filtered water so much I am now taking a second shower before bed, it just leaves me feeling so refreshed. Bottom line the price may seem like a splurge but you only have to change the shower filter every 6 months and the difference it makes in your hair and skin will save you money in beauty products.

The Aquasana Shower Filter has 2 separate filter stages… One that takes out chlorine and balances the pH, the other filters out harmful VOCs and THMs that vaporize while showering and are unhealthful to inhale.
Installs in seconds and provides healthy, filtered water for showering. The healthiest most refreshing shower you’ll ever take! Offers tremendous benefits to people with skin conditions and breathing disorders. The benefits are immediately noticeable and long lasting.

“It’s Like Showering In Natural Spring Water”

Comes complete with 2 stage filter cartridge that lasts 6 months (replacement cost is only $42.00 semi-annually with auto-ship) and the deluxe “Niagara” adjustable pressure shower head, handheld shower wand available.

Stage 1 removes chlorine and enhances pH balance with a natural copper/ zinc mineral media called KDF-55D. The second filtration stage uses a carbonized coconut shell media for the removal of synthetic chemicals and VOCs that vaporize and can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin, potentially causing adverse health and cosmetic effects.

The result is the healthiest, most refreshing shower experience you’ll ever have… for only 21¢ a day!

Anyone who has ever swum in a chlorinated pool knows how chlorine robs moisture from skin and hair. What most don’t realize is that typically there is as much, or more chlorine in your tap water as there is in most swimming pools.

Chlorine strips the natural protective oils from skin and hair, causing excess dryness. Without the harsh influences of chlorine you‘ll notice significant cosmetic benefits… Softer skin & hair in a week or your money back!

Also by removing chlorine and other chemicals found in tap water, you eliminate health risks related to inhalation and skin absorption of these chemicals… now known to be a significant source of exposure to harmful VOCs (volatile organic chemicals).

Your shower water will feel better, and be better for you.

On Aquasana‘s “Water 4 Life” cartridge auto-ship program you‘ll receive fresh new filter cartridges automatically every 6 months at discount pricing… and FREE shipping! Required forms included with product.

Is it worth a new obsession?


Ok so it’s our readers fault I am now hooked on Diorshow mascara. After reading all your reviews on how great it is, I went from an unaware Great Lash user to a junkie for Diorshow . I am wondering if Dior Airflash is as great as Diorshow? Has anyone tried it that can give me a review?

Dior  AirFlash Spray Foundation

Perfection In A Flash
Start getting used to a new way to apply foundation, the flawless way. A few light sprays (start at the jaw and work your way up) and you’ll soon love the ease and texture of this spritz-on skin perfecter.

What it is:
An ultra-fluid mist foundation.

What it is formulated to do:
Delivers an “airbrushed” effect with precision and ease. Evens out skin tone and visibly diminishes the appearance of fine lines and skin irregularities.

Is this cool or scary?


no! no!

What it is:
A revolutionary new concept in hair removal, suitable for all hair types and skin colors.

What it does:
Achieve hair density reduction at home, with no mess, no cuts, no burns, and no noise. No!no! is based on an exciting new technology called Thermicon™, which uses the scientific principles of thermal transference to conduct a gentle pulse of heat to the hair. It features a unique innovation: a thermodynamic wire to transmit the heat to the hair. This patented wire and built-in safety mechanisms has allowed for the adaptation of professional hair removal technology into a home use product.

What else you need to know:
With a no!no! treatment there’s no pain, you don’t have to wait for hair to grow long in order to remove it, and there is no skin irritation like in-grown hairs, red pimples, or rashes to cover up. Remember no!no! is a treatment process for hair reduction and not a miracle cure for unwanted hair. Like any professional hair treatment, it takes time and dedication to achieve your desired results. The same holds true for the revolutionary no!no! hair removal system; with all the right moves, stubble-free, super smooth skin will be yours. Be sure to follow the directions closely for the safest, most effective results. No!no! is not recommended for use on the face.
