Lip Product Addict Tag

This tag was created by Amelia Liana and Essie Button on YouTube.  I’ve been wanting to do it for a while being a lip product addict myself. 1. Favorite Balm/Treatment Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm by Dior for sure.  I’ve written about it before.  I always have one around. 2. Best Eye-Catching Red I’d have to say Fire and Ice by Revlon.  Although I prefer blueish toned reds,

Product Review: Therapie Himalayan Detox Salts

  Wow.  These bath salts have developed a cult following and it’s no wonder.  They’re amazing.  Cult Beauty describes it as “a natural version of valium.”  That’s an apt description.  It also claims to treat insomnia and absorb radiation from mobile & computer use.  There’s no way to quantify a reduction in radiation but it treats insomnia like a dream.  This is a wonderful and luxurious sleepy time aide. The

Product Review: Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps

This family owned and operated company has been making soaps for over 150 years but sometimes we can forget how good they are.  Everything they make is organic, certified Free Trade, cruelty-free, and vegan.  Their renowned Castile Liquid Soaps can be used for washing the body, face or hair, as well as dishwashing, mopping the floor, and as a laundry soap.  They claim you can even brush your teeth with

Product Review: Sunday Riley’s Ceramic Slip Cleanser

  I’ve been using this for three months now and it’s easily a favorite.  I love the texture, smell, and most importantly the squeaky clean feeling after I rinse it off.  It cleanses, detoxifies, and minimizes pores.  I included this in my June Favorites and noted my favorite part is the fact that it contains black pepper.  It’s a great find albeit expensive for a cleanser, $45.  Available at Cult

July Favorites

  To the list – BUMBLE AND BUMBLE A Tint of Brown Hair Powder: I love this tinted dry shampoo.  It cost more than the tinted Batiste which I use regularly but it can cast a grayish residue and this does not.  Comes in various shades, available at Sephora for $36 and salons. Kerastase Initialiste Advanced Scalp & Hair Serum Concentrate: I’ve just started using this this month and it’s
