Sponsored Post: Don’t miss out on anything with Gillette’s Venus Snap Razor!

Every girl’s dream is now complete as Gillette has finally created a razor which you can take on the go! With the Gillette Venus Snap, there is no need to miss out on life’s spontaneous moments due to prickly legs! To advertise this genius product, Gillette has teamed up with renown video blogger, Tessa Violet, and together they have created the Venus Snap song (warning- it’s very catchy!). Everyone can relate to the feeling when everything seems to be going great until you realize it’s been a questionable number of days since your last shave! Throughout the video, Tessa creates a jingle using a collection of these Oops-moments. While recounting these stories, Tessa showcases the convenience of having a razor which you can carry with you anytime and anywhere-making The Snap an essential component to every girl’s beauty survival kit!

Turn that missed spot into a chance to be in the spotlight! Tweet your “wish-I’d-shaved” moment to @Gillette Venus and video blogger Tessa Violet might turn it into a song #InASnap!

Venus Snap lets you experience instant smoothness on-the-go. With five curve-hugging blades and a portable compact, you’ll be ready for anything, anytime, anywhere.

Seriously how cute is this little razor! It could fit in your pocket!

Warmer weather calls for shorter hemlines and fun getaways! If your legs have been hiding behind layers all winter, find your perfect match razor that works best for your skin and lifestyle needs to ensure a smooth transition to spring and summer adventures. With Venus’ NEWEST additions, you can say goodbye to irritated skin, nicks and cuts and get the most out of your shave… and say hello to beautiful silky smooth legs!

Irritated skin and sexy legs just don’t go together. That’s why Venus set out to discover why 60% of women felt their sensitive skin was getting in the way of a close shave – and learned that women who believe they have sensitive skin may actually just experience irritation from using the wrong or dull razor.

For insta-smoothness for impromptu weekend getaways and rooftop soirees, the NEW Venus Snap with Embrace goes with you anywhere in its portable, stylish compact and features full-size Venus Embrace blades on a mini-handle. So whether you skipped a shave and need to be smooth for a spontaneous night out or missed a few hairs, tuck Snap in your bag for instant smoothness anytime, anywhere – just add water!

Extend Your Color with the New Nexxus Color Assure

 

Nexxus recognizes how much time and money women invest in their hair color; 47% of women have colored their hair in the last six months and have a more intense regimen to maintain the color they’ve just achieved in the salon.

I’m excited to let you know that your perfect shade can now last up to two times longer with the new Nexxus Color Assure line! The Nexxus Color Assure System consists of the Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer, Vibrancy Retention Shampoo and Conditioner, and Glossing Tonic.

2270399

The first step is the Pre-Wash Primer, a specialized pre-treatment that will form a barrier against the water and protect your hairs cuticle. You just need a few pumps I use about 3-4 and work from the ends up. Just enough product to protect but not saturate your strands. I thought this might feel weird in my hair but if you use the right amount you can’t even feel it.

Color Assure Pre-Wash Primer $17.99 – our first pre-treatment helps to shield hair in the shower. It repels water to lock-in color and keep it unbelievably vibrant. Simply apply it before stepping into the shower for hair color that’s instantly more protected against the fading effects of water.

Next step  is the Vibrancy Retention Shampoo and Conditioner, with White Orchid Extract to seal and protect hair and repel water.  Both include ingredients of Sweet Almond Oil and Coconut Oil to protect your color from water damage. I really love this shampoo and conditioner duo. The product smells beautiful and works well to clean and condition my hair.

Within the first few uses my hair felt softer and smoother and was much more manageable.

Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Shampoo $9.99 – the sulfate-free formula provides a luxurious lather and leaves hair clear and manageable for long-lasting, luminous color.

Color Assure Vibrancy Retention Conditioner  $13.99 – the oil-infused formula helps to nourish hair and preserve color vibrancy while leaving it soft and smooth.

Final step in the Color Assure line is the Glossing Tonic. A light mist that you apply to towel dried hair that will help bring out the shine. I really like this product its light and doesn’t weight down my fine hair. It  leaves my hair incredibly shiny which can be tricky when I am heat styling.

Color Assure Glossing Tonic $17.99 – this weightless oil-infused mist dries quickly to bring out your color’s unbelievable shine.

 Final Verdict: I really love this line. Within the first week of using the Color Assure line I was getting asked if I had just had my hair done. I highlight my hair and it tends to go brassy quiet easily. I love how this line kicked out the brassy tones and brought back my bright blonde shade. I will definitely be buying more, I love how my hair color looks and how great my hair feels.

The New Nexxus Color Assure Line will be available for purchase at Walmart stores and online at Walmart.com.

So I decided I was #downfor30, I have challenged myself to take my hair out of a bun and let it down.  I like to call this my “Beachy Waves” hairdo. I will  walk you through how I achieved this look – using ONLY Frizz Ease products!

Most days my hair is tied up in a bun. I find it way to easy to pull my hair back instead of styling it.

Step 1: Wash hair.

Step 2: I applied 10 pumps or so of Frizz Ease’s Go Curler to my damp hair and then blow dried my hair.

Here are the only two products I used on my hair! Frizz Ease’s Go Curler – and Frizz Ease’s Expert Finish Polishing Serum!

Step 3: To create my beachy waves I used a straight rod. I sectioned my hair and wrapped each strand backwards and down to get the beachy look.

Step 4: I was really impressed with how well the curls held. I have used the straight rod before and this was by far the easiest. Frizz Ease’s Go Curler is an excellent styling product.

Step 5: I warmed two pumps of Frizz Ease’s Polishing Serum in my hand, and then ran it through my completed look to get rid of any flyaways. It worked great to smooth my hair without damaging the curls. I am so amazed how great this styling combo it. It made styling my hair simple and fun and I will be using this duo regularly to create more curly looks.

So I decided I was #downfor30! I challenged myself to take my hair OUT OF THAT hair tie, and style it! I like to call this my “Summer’s THIIIIIS Close” hairdo.

I’m going to walk you through how I achieved this look – using ONLY Frizz Ease products!

See this (below)? This is me on an everyday basis. C’mon girlfriend – let that hair down!

IMG_1812

I’m going to be honest. At this point I didn’t even have makeup on. So I stopped everything – let my hair down – and put makeup on!

Step 1: Wash hair.

IMG_1818

Step 2: I applied 10 pumps or so of Frizz Ease’s Go Curler to my damp hair and then blow dried my hair.  (See above)

  • Activated with the heat from your curling iron or hot rollers this breakthrough formula creates your best salon-smooth curls that last for up to 48 hours.
  • Defines and tightens curls for bouncy, salon-smooth style with a touchable hold.
  • Curls can be touched up the next day to reactivate bouncy style

IMG_1819

Here are the only two products I used on my hair! Frizz Ease’s Go Curler – and Frizz Ease’s Expert Finish Polishing Serum!

Step 3: Pick your favorite hot curlers. I separated my hair into two sections – top & bottom. I applied the hot curlers to the bottom hair first, and then finished with the top.

IMG_1742IMG_1811

Step 4: Time to let those curlers set! I grabbed myself a nice cooler, and went and sat in the backyard for a few minutes. It was a rare – beautiful afternoon in Oregon, so I thought I’d enjoy the nice weather!

Step 5: Take those curlers out – and see what you’ve got! I was SHOCKED with how well the curls set. It had to have been the Go Curler I used on my hair before I dried it. The curls looked amazing!

IMG_1817IMG_1816

Step 6: I squirted a little bit of Frizz Ease’s Polishing Serum into my hand, and ran it through my completed hair to get rid of any flyaways I had! The end look was absolutely gorgeous! I will definitely use these two products again when curling my hair!
