Jane iredale’s just launched their new limited edition Lemongrass Love Hydration Spray in collaboration with Living Beyond Breast Cancer. Lemongrass Love is a 100% natural, 30% organic aromatherapy facial spritz that conditions and protects all skin types while leaving skin looking smooth and revitalized.

100% of the profits (not just proceeds) from the sales of Lemongrass Love will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national education and support organization whose mission is to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support, a mission that closely resembles that of the jane iredale brand.

A great cause and a great brand is enough to be happy with but you will love the Lemongrass Love Hyrdration Spray once you try it. I use it to set my makeup in the morning, refresh my skin mid day or in the evening before I head out. I love how fresh and clean my skin feels after a spritz and it keeps the mid-day shine at bay. The Lemongrass scent is so refreshing and its the perfect wake me up about 2pm in the afternoon when my brain starts to try to sneak out of work early.

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Silkening Blow Out Crème


I  seem to quickly fall for each Madam C.J. Walker product I try. And my favorite so far is their Silkening Blow Out Creme. With naturally curly, fine, color treated hair long soft frizz free curls can be near impossible. That is until I used Silkening Blow Out Creme.

First thing I noticed was how great it smelled, sweet and fresh but not over powering. The creme is a dream come true, I can blow out and heat style my hair and its still soft, smooth and touchable. And this protects my hair so it isn’t left looking dry or frizzy. My hair is naturally more of a crazed spiral tight on the bottom and loose curls on the top, quite a look. I love that with the Madam C.J. Walker Silkening Creme I can dry and heat style my hair and it looks and feels smoother and healthier than when I began.


Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Brassica Seed & Shea Oils Silkening Blow Out Crème

What it is:

A heat protective cream for a smooth, easy brush glide.

What it is formulated to do:

The blow dryer is a great tool for versatile styling, but uncontrolled high heat and tugging can lead to breakage. This heat protective Blow Out Crème aligns strands for smooth, easy brush glide to reduce styling time. Dual encapsulation technology ensures a smooth finish as tiny microspheres deliver fast-absorbing brassica seed oil, a natural alternative to silicone, and deep conditioning Shea Oil exactly where hair needs it most. Time-release actives help to extend your straight style.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:

Brassica Seed & Shea Oils collection has products formulated for a silky, soft finish—each featuring a temping blend of spun sugar and red velvet cream. Brassica seed, a natural alternative to silicone, provides the smoothness and luster you want without weighing hair down or creating product buildup. Shea oil hydrates and deeply conditions hair without leaving it looking or feeling greasy, while providing natural heat protection.

Spun Sugar, Red Velvet Cream.

Introducing: SHOW Beauty Wet Line


I recently had the chance to check out the Show Beauty line and right from opening the package this set is amazing. First off the bottles are all in my favorite color black! And those sleek black bottles are topped with the cutest crystal look caps and gold accents. First shampoo and conditioner duo that is almost too pretty to use… almost. If I thought the outside was great the inside is even better.

The Show Beauty Sublime Repair Shampoo is fantastic, the formula worked up into  great lather and not only smells amazing but left my hair feeling really clean. I really liked how clean my hair felt and the shampoo didn’t dry out my hair and leave it feeling like straw.


SHOW BEAUTY Sublime Repair Shampoo
This luxury Repair Shampoo restores hair to its natural health and shine, leaving it strengthened and silky soft for a luscious look.

A blend of Quinoa Protein and Vitamin E delivers targeted repairing and nourishing properties. Caviar and White Truffle extracts, known for their intense conditioning and enriching benefits, infuse this formula helping to revive and protect your hair.



The Show Beauty Sublime conditioner is thick, rich and buttery. Its incredibly hydrating and rinses clean to not leave any build up in my hair. After color and heat damage my hair is very dry and within the first week of use I have noticed my hair is much softer, easier to comb through and the shine is back. An amazing conditioner for hair that need a little TLC.



SHOW BEAUTY Sublime Repair Conditioner
This sumptuous Repair Conditioner revives damaged hair, leaving it soft, irresistibly touchable and full-bodied.

Infused with Quinoa Protein, known to reinforce hair fibres and provide protection from cuticle abrasion, this conditioner helps improve hair’s manageability and tensile strength. A blend of Caviar and White Truffle extracts enrich this formula with conditioning and revitalising properties.




The grand finale of the Show Beauty Sublime Repair collection is their Repair Treatment mask. Its thick and creamy almost like a body butter. I apply a dollop and work through the middle of my hair to the ends. Then I like to put my hair in a top knot wrap in a shower cap and let the repair mask go to work.

I have fine, curly, color treated hair that breaks or gets frizzy at the drop of a hat.  I have used this mask to do a deep treatment 3 times now and its really improving the look and feel of my hair. While its still my same issue prone hair its getting stronger and breaking less and my frizz is nearly gone. The best part is this even added shine and softeness back to my highlighted hair. Its the perfect way to spend an evening giving yourself a little luxury at home spa treatment.



SHOW BEAUTY Sublime Repair Treatment Mask

This exceptional, intensive Repair Treatment Mask deeply nourishes for exquisitely sleek and glossy hair.

A multi-faceted protein-based complex helps this Treatment Mask strengthen the hair from within, whilst
Hydrolyzed Pea and Quinoa Protein add hydration to this formula and improve elasticity. Pro Vitamin B5 adds nourishment and conditioning, helping to improve manageability and body. A combination of Caviar and White Truffle extracts enrich this formula with amino acids and minerals, moisturising and adding tensile strength.


Show Beauty is now available at Sephora stores and online at Sephora.com.

Trending For Fall: Amber Fragrance Notes with Caress

With cooler weather around the corner, it’s time to stock up on fall trends. From interesting heel shapes and velvet everything to burgundy lips and glossy eyelids, fall certainly has a touch of Victorian chic this year. Notes of Amber are the perfect complement to this dark and mysterious look and it’s considered one of the trendiest notes in niche perfumery for the season.

Givaudan Fragrances, the chemists behind Caress fine fragrances, is one of the first pioneers of fragrance chemistry and the creator of Ambermax®, a substantive amber woody note. Amber, a synthetic note created as a late 19th-century olfactory invention, is typically comprised of vanilla, benzoin and labdanum. These rich ingredients impart a soft warmth, a subtle sweetness and depth.



I’ve had a chance to try the 3 new Fall body wash fragrances from Caress and I really love these new scents. Check out the three new scents below.

I love this scent, it could be a perfume with the warm, sultry amber notes mingled with the Imperial Iris. Such a gorgeous scent and I love that it leaves my skin smelling great for hours.

Mystique Forever
The captivating, feminine fragrance features a sensual bouquet of rare and exquisite Imperial Iris that mingles with addictive amber to create a bold and alluring scent. Its breakthrough Fragrance Touch Technology releases bursts of these notes for up to 12 hours, captivating the senses and leaving others wanting more.

Sheer Twilight is a very exotic scent with Black Orchid and Juniper Oil on top of a golden amber base. This was not really in my wheelhouse while I found it pretty the scent was a bit overwhelming to me. My daughter did not agree and happily snatched it from my shower. So check it out you may love it as much as she does.

Sheer Twilight
Infused with the scents of Black Orchid and Juniper Oil, the scent’s sensual and mysterious black orchid is the centerpiece but it leads the way to a captivating blend of dark woods, golden amber, and exotic fruits.

Last but not least my new obsession Passionate Spell. Really the most gorgeous body wash scent I have ever tried. The Passionfruit and Fiery Orange Rose and earthy and warm and the base of vanilla and amber make it intoxicatingly good. As you can see by the half empty bottle I love it. And even better my whole bathroom smells amazing after my shower and my skin has a hint of the scent all day. I will be stocking up on this!

Passionate Spell
Infused with the notes of Passionfruit and Fiery Orange Rose, the scent opens with notes of plum and raspberry, has jasmine, rose and freesia at its heart and features a base of cedarwood, vanilla and amber.



You can purchase the new Caress scents at your local drugstore or mass retailer.
