REVIEW: Conair Infiniti Pro Spin Brush

A good blow-out is hard to get, let alone at home. However, the always wonderful people at Conair have created a tool that allows you to get an amazing blow-out in the comfort of your own home.

Smooth, frizz-free and voluminous hair is now easy to achieve with the new Infiniti Pro by Conair Spin Air Brush!  Shaped like a typical round hair brush you’d use to do a blow-out, the Spin Air brush combines two tools in one by blowing air through the rotating brush to volumize and add shine as you dry.

The tangle-free anti-static bristles allow you to customize your volume fast with or without the spin function. The powerful ceramic heat distributes heat evenly for less damage, and an anti-frizz ionic generator releases up to 100x more ions than ions created from natural sources. With up to 100x more ions, your hair will have maximum conditioning and shine! Choose from 2 heat settings plus cool setting and the multi-directional rotation (right/left) makes it easy for both right and left-handed users.

The Infiniti Pro by Conair Spin Air Brush is available nationwide at drug store retailers, as well as at www.conairspinair.com  for an average retail price of $59.99.

Boscia MakeUp BreakUp Cool Cleansing Oil

I love this stuff! Why beat around the bush? I’ve always wanted to try an oil makeup remover, but I’ve been super apprehensive. I have combination/oily skin, so the thought of adding more oil, even to remove makeup, seemed ridiculous.

However, last month when I was in Sephora to pick up my free birthday gift, I saw this sample size near the registers and thought “Why Not?!”. After the first use, I was pretty much hooked. It gentle removed all my makeup, eye makeup included, and left no oily residue. Still, I know my skin and I know just using the cleansing oil would be too much for my skin. So, I always follow up by washing my face with a gentle beauty bar.

So, my next trip to Sephora, I’m definitely picking up the full size of this cleansing oil.

Glamour Puss- How to Create the Perfect Curls

If there is one look that screams Hollywood glamour it has to be gorgeous tumbling curls. From Madonna to Sarah Jessica Parker, curls have been very popular with celebs on the red carpet and what’s more the look is easy to achieve at home.

You don’t need loads of fancy styling tools; instead you can use you ghds to create gorgeous curls. The beautiful thing about ghd hair stylers is because they have a rounded barrel they can be used to create curls as well as straight hair.

In order to curl your hair you need to section it – the easiest way to do this is to use your finger to section of a line of hair and clip that out of the way. Then if you need to, further separate out your hair; the number of sections will depend on how thick your hair is.

Once you have separated your hair into sections you can need to spritz those sections with styling spray. Then place your ghd stylers at the roots of each section and simply rotate it 180 degrees, gliding it slowly through the hair. Once this has been done catch the curl and in order to increase the curl you can twist it round your finger. For a really natural look you can alternate the way you rotate the styler – either towards the head or away from it. If you only want to curl the bottom half of the hair simply smooth the GHDs through the top half of the hair and start the curling process wherever you want to.

If you want separated and dishevelled curls you can run your fingers through the curls once they have been styled. This will define the curls and make them loose and separated, and most of all natural.

Once you have your finished curls spray them with a finishing and fixing spray in order to hold them in place for gorgeous bouncy curls. What’s more, you will need only one easy hair styler; you don’t need to get a curling tong or another hair styling device but instead can create sexy curls with a ghd styler.

You can find more hairstyle tips online at the ghd website. They have a dedicated guide here where there are expert tips and tutorials on how to create the best looks.

Making Scents of It: Bath & Body Work’s Country Chic

I’m a scent-aholic! I adore scents in perfume, body spray, air freshners…whatever. Soooo, I’ve decided that I want to start doing more perfume and cologne pieces (I swoon men’s cologne) whenever I feel the need or the urge and decided to create a new title for it and everything. Likey?

Anyway, the first scent is one from Bath & Body Works called Country Chic. I’m not sure how long it’s been around. I think they debuted the collection sometime this past summer, but I’m just now getting it. The reason I just recently bought it? Oh, you see, everytime I step foot in B&BW I always leave with enough lotions, body sprays, candles, and stuff to keep me smelling liking anyone you want meet or place you want to visit….for years. So, I made a conscious effort to afford that store like the plague for the past few month. Unfortunately, I had to go to the mall this past weekend to get my free birthday gift from Sephora and some other stuff that I didn’t need and told myself that I would just casually walk in B&BW to sniff the new fall candles and bounce empty-handed. Easy to say, hard to do.

So, one of the lotions I bought was Country Chic in the small bottle, just to give a whirl. After less than a week, I’ve finally decided do I love, like, or loathe it. Keep reading to find out.

SUPER by Dr. Perricone love Omega 3 Chai + giveaway! (CLOSED!)

I’ve been a HUGE fan of Perricone MD products for a few years now. They have something to solve almost any issue you have with your skin ranging from acne to wrinkles and everything in between.

Now, Dr. Perricone has new line called SUPER by Dr. Perricone that focuses on using “superfoods”, that are loaded with healthy skin essentials such as Omega 3 Chai and capsaicin pepper to help you achieve healthy and supple skin.

The only product I’ve had the pleasure to try from SUPER is the Hyper Hydrator. However, don’t let the name fool you like it did me. I was a little apprehensive to select this moisturizer, because the name made me think that it was super moisturizing and better suited for people with dry skin and not my combination and mostly oily skin. Instead, after reading that it was light formula that left a matte finish, I knew this would be perfect for me and it is! It’s really lightweight, absorbs easily, and leaves a matte finish. Basically, it does everything it says it does!

GIVEAWAY!

Want to win a product from the SUPER by Perricone line. Well, leave a comment below telling me which product you would like to try and why. You can enter as many times as you like by August 29th. Good Luck!

P.S- A good read about Mobile Commerce Technology for all my fellow techies! 😉
