Oscar de la Renta’s Eau de Toilette Spray is a timeless classic!

IMG_4265

This is one of those fragrances that is absolutely timeless. That’s a great way to describe it. You smell it, you recognize it. Smells like home.

I love Oscar de la Renta’s classic Eau de la Toilette. It’s a beautiful floral bouquet with a subtle powdery scent, heightened by a pinch of spice. The eau de toilette remains faithful to the perfume with an added touch of freshness.

Wouldn’t this make the perfect holiday gift for the woman in your life? Hint, hint!

REVIEW: Korres Black Pine Firming, Lifting & Antiwrinkle Night Cream

IMG_4279

See this itty-bitty sample? Isn’t that the saddest thing ever? I hate it when I fall completely madly in love with something and all I have is this tiny sample. I’ll be cutting the tube open and scraping it out with my fingernail before the week is out.

Korres’ gorgeous, new night cream is delicious. It makes my skin feel absolutely renewed by morning! It is on the spendy side, but I think I might have to spring for it. I noticed VISIBLE results in just a couple days.

A rich firming, contouring, and lifting night cream powered by a proprietary blend of active and patented ingredients for advanced results.

This luxurious cream works overnight, the optimal time for skin to receive intense treatment, delivering a continuous dose of black pine actives while you sleep for advanced firming, contouring, and lifting action to boost skin firmness, resist deep wrinkles, and prevent sagging. The formula was discovered by blending the highly active and efficacious black pine extract with a proprietary blend containing eight unique active ingredients, five of which are patented.

Research results:
- During two years of primary clinical research, KORRES Research Lab in Athens, Greece discovered that powerful black pine polyphenols maintain the elasticity of the connective tissue better than all other polyphenols studied

We talk a lot about keeping our skin hydrated and moisturized come the change of seasons, but a lot of times taking care of our hair falls to the wayside. This Fall, we are all about taking care of our strands and repairing damage done after days spent at the beach and out in the hot Summer sun.

Get your locks back on track with these nourishing hair masks, that will have your hair shining and in good health in no time.

 

one n only argan mask

I love how thick and creamy this mask is. After washing my hair I add a dollop of the mask and work from the ends up. I leave it on for 3-5 minutes and when I hop out of the shower my hair is easy to comb through and feels and looks soft and silky.

First thing I noticed with the Carol’s Daughter mask is how amazing it smells. Every time I open the tub I am swooning at the gorgeous scent.

This mask it so luxuriously thick and creamy  I just need a small amount to really deep condition my hair. My highlights can tend to go a bit brassy but since using the Tui Color Care Mask I have noticed my color has stayed true and my hair looks and feels much healthier from root to tip.

Carol’s Daughter Tui Color Care Hydrating Mask ($20.00, carolsdaughter.com): To instantly fix dull, color-treated hair so it can have all the softness, shine and vibrancy you want. Enriched with Cacao Butter and Olive and Maurita Fruit Oils to rescue and deeply condition your hair.

brazilian tech

If you have curly hair this is the mask for you! With natural curly and color treated hair its so hard to strike the balance between conditioning my curls and not weighing them down. That being said I am so impressed with this deep conditioner. I didn’t check the prices before trying the trio to get an unbiased opinion and frankly I am shocked how low the price is on this one.

I use a quarter size drop and work it through my hair paying close attention to the ends. After the first use I noticed a huge change in my hair. My curls not only looked better but they were soft and manageable. And I could put them in a bun and let them out later and they would still look great. I will be stocking up on this I love how great it makes my hair look and feel I am actually wearing it down, on purpose!

Brazilian Tech Keratin Deep-Penetrating Conditioning Treatment ($6.38, stylesource.com): is a protein and vitamin treatment that helps to improve the strength of hair. This high-performance professional conditioning treatment helps to restore your hair’s natural keratin that may have been lost or damaged during daily styling and chemical/color treatments.

Sponsored Post: Muddy Puppies ain’t no trouble for Clorox’s Green Works!

greenworks

Cleaning product brand Clorox takes a spin on Fashion Week season, by releasing a pack of muddy puppies onto the catwalk in front of an unsuspecting (and crispy clean) audience. The puppies run out as soon as the show starts, staining the catwalk and the audience with mud… Nobody seems to care, because puppies!

At the end of the video, 3 (human) models walk out, demonstrating the power of Clorox’s Green Works product line (ranging from all-purpose cleaners to laundry detergents).

I could watch this video a hundred times. What’s cuter than puppies!? I have a black lab, and he was a puppy for a blink of an eye! I miss the cute little squishy phase!

What I don’t miss about puppies is the mess. I live in Oregon – where it rains 8 months a year. It is something I’ve come to find comforting, really, but rain + puppies DO NOT MIX. I have to have cleaning supplies on hand at all times. Their muddy little paw prints all over my hardwood floors.

What I love about Clorox’s Green Works products – is it’s safe on my hardwood floors! It’s NATURAL!

Natural home care products should: 1) contain natural ingredients, 2) avoid any ingredients with suspected human health risks, 3) use no animal testing and 4) use biodegradable ingredients along with environmentally sustainable packaging. We’re proud to announce that five of our products have already passed a rigorous certification process — with more to follow.

Have you tried Green Works? Which is your favorite product? I went out and bought some of the products you see above – and I have to say, I just LOVE the wipes. They are so easy – so effective – and affordable! What’s not to love!?

Watch the cutest video ever below!
