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.  

  • 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

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.

Review: It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator

ultimate-body-appplicator-wrap-it-works

I recently had the chance to review the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator. After all the buzz I have heard, I was interested to see if it was all hype. Now if you are hoping for some before and afters, I am sorry you are out of luck. After 3 kids the only way I am getting half naked in front of a camera is if you have a margarita water fountain. But I will share with you my personal thoughts. And if you want to see the reults, well bring me a few margaritas.

it works uba

I received the Ultimate Body Applicator pack with 4 one time use wraps. The wrap is set up for you to choose from multiple areas to firm and tighten. It comes in a sealed pouch and when you open it one side is covered with the special formula. The product itself has a nice herbal smell to it, I found it very refreshing. I chose to work on my stomach and I applied it threw my shirt on and went back to work. Once I applied the wrap I found the product kept it in place pretty well. Granted I work from a home office, so if you are a gymnastics coach maybe you do it in the evening.

After 45 minutes I removed the wrap and rubbed the remaining product into my skin. My skin felt good but I didn’t see any huge changes. I followed with another wrap every 72 hours per the instructions and by wrap three I could definitely see a difference. My skin of my stomach felt much firmer and smoother and it really started to diminish the appearance of my stretch marks. By the time the fourth and final wrap was done I was really happy with the results. My skin on my stomach felt much tighter, no more Santa laugh belly here.

Overall I think this is a great product, it really did help firm and tone my skin. Now this isn’t a miracle product, it won’t turn a beer belly into a six pack in 4 sessions. But if you are working on diet and exercise this is an excellent companion product to help you see the best results from your hard work. With summer swimsuit season coming this is a great product to help make sure you are looking and feeling your best as we start baring more skin.

Christina is having a great year, a new single and a baby on the way. Its no surprise the Diva herself loves EOS lip balm. Its one of my favorites, the scents are amazing and they feel great on. I love the shape of the balm it makes it easy to find, even in the most cluttered handbag. Looks like Christina is using Summer Fruit, the perfect choice for the coming months.

New! Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab

Not sure what happened but my cuticles have been crazy dry lately. Is there anything more annoying or ugly than a hang nail?

Luckily I had a tube of Sally Hansen’s new Cuticle Rehab and it was the perfect time to review. The product is a thick clear gel and the applicator is a really easy to use brush tip. It has a subtle but yummy scent and is really easy to apply.

I like how quickly it absorbs into my skin and it feels great on dry, damaged skin. My cuticles were looking pretty rough but within just a few days use the hangnails were gone and the skin was looking better.

Such an excellent product, I will definitely be using this regularly to keep my nails and cuticles looking good.
