Happy Dance!! It’s my favorite day of the month. My Beauty Box 5 arrived packed with goodies! I am thrilled with this months goodies! Everything...
Whether you’ve been denied ordering off the kids menu, desperately wanting to be older so you’ll be taken seriously, or enjoying the senior discount with no shame, you’re never too young- or too old- to start taking care of your skin!
Plenty of us have used skincare products that our friends, mothers and grandmothers used, with no regard to how it might impact us. Rather than spending money on the next fad lotion or cream that everyone else uses, why not get exactly what you need? Catching my eye with customization lately has been the different phases of Simyskin’s Anti-Aging Eye Serum. All three target what’s affecting the sensitive skin around your eyes in each stage of life.
While I personally fall on the left side of the graphic above, and have always been told eye serum was something I wouldn’t need until later in life, even now, a tube will do some preliminary protection for my peepers and plus, a tiny bit will last me a long time!
BB5 Tip: A little goes a long way!
You only need to massage a very small amount into your skin each morning after cleansing and before applying moisturizer. Just a dab does wonders!
Remember- you’re only as young as you feel, but good skin makes every era your golden years.
We’ve all heard that beauty is pain, but that doesn’t mean we have to keep proving it right!
Whether it’s waxing your brows or lipstick that dries out your pout, there’s too many vices that keep the contents our makeup bag hostage, but I draw the line- or cat-eye, rather- at eyeliner that hurts to apply! I always budget time when I’m getting ready in the morning to emphasize my eyes with a vivid swipe of black, but hard pencils that tug at my eyelids, or worse, the madness of mashing my peepers with a liner tip that crumbles, can throw off my whole day. In my quest for lining nirvana, this month’s Starlooks’ Kohl Eye Pencil has really joined the ranks with my favorite liners because its creamy formula glides on with ease, but is still packed with pigment to deliver a saturated finish, pain-free. Plus, the color is easy to blend with a brush, making it a smoky-eye staple.
BB5 Tip: Warm it up!
Once you’ve sharpened your eye pencil, rub the sharpened end between your thumb and index finger lightly for an even smoother application with no pokes had or tears shed!
Be gentle but still bold,
P.S. Joanna is looking simply marvelous up top wearing the Obsidian Kohl Eye Pencil by Starlooks.
Added to the list of burgers without cheese, chipped nail polish, and mall traffic, chapped lips are simply something that I don’t have time for. When the weather and long day can be so drying and dull, why, oh why would I leave the house without a hydrating balm in my hand?
Believing that soft smackers really do make a difference, Body Drench’s Candy Licious Lips have won my heart, because even typing about them is causing a craving to get out my tube and apply. They’re made of moisturizing beeswax, vitamin E and coconut oil- hello, ingredients I can pronounce!- and with 6 different sugary flavors like Cotton Candy, Peppermint Stick, and Lemon Drop, it’s like having a little candy shop stashed in my purse.
Honestly, the hardest part is picking just one sweet flavor to use at a time (well, in addition to not embarrassingly licking it off my lips in public because it’s so delicious).
BB5 Tip: Keep it handy!
I like to store a container in each purse I use and by my bed, so that I never have to worry about forgetting it and leaving my lips dehydrated! Plus, the smell alone is the perfect pick-me-up for my constant sweet tooth.
Moisturize with flavor!
If your hair could pull up a chair and sit down to chat with a professional therapist about its childhood, struggles, and problems, what would it say?
Mine would probably be able to tell many tales about just what I’ve put it through. I’ve fallen victim to DIY color that left me with straw-like locks, I’ve blown it out with the hottest setting my dryer could manage days in a row, and my straightener, curling wands and irons, and yes, even the crimper of my middle school days, have all done their fair share of damage.
Since my dry tresses come with plenty of baggage, an intervention is necessary- a frequent one, actually- and HASK’s Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment is just that! I’ve heard the buzz about Argan Oil for a while, and was skeptical at first, but this Moroccan miracle really repairs, fixing flyways and frizz while adding shine.
BB5 Tip: Relax and let the magic happen!
Think of deep conditioning as your few minutes of zen. After shampooing, apply it to your hair and allow it to work through your parched locks for about 10 minutes (I measure it as three songs on my shower playlist), then rinse it out to discover a soft, smooth, and moisturized mane.
Bigger life issues may take more than one therapy session, but hydrated healthy hair is easy, no prescription required.
Interested in even more TLC? We’re giving away the entire HASK Argan Oil collection, including the Intense Deep Conditioning Hair Treatment, plus the Repairing Shampoo and Conditioner and the Healing Shine Hair Treatment on our Facebook page!
To the girl who loves rocking a bold lip but is scared to look in her compact midway through the evening, I feel you.
I so know the pain of running to the bathroom to check my makeup and being horrified when my once-perfectly-primped lipstick has vanished all too well, so anything that keeps my smackers looking smashing is an obsession! I always shied away from liner because I thought it was just another step, but this month, I’m loving the great, long-lasting color and definition of Starlooks’ Lip Liner because it fixes my getting ready woes in one step. Being a newbie to lip pencils, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it glides on (gently warm the tip between your thumb and index finger!) and that it really did keep my lipstick in place- no more dreaded smudges on my skin!
An even better bonus and lazy-girl’s dream? The pencil’s pigments and finish are so top-notch that I have been using it by itself as an allover lip color as well!
BB5 Tip: Just trace your pout and fill in inside the lines like your old coloring book days- and if you’re worried that the outline might be too harsh, use a q-tip around the edges to blend or soften the look!
Line on and shine on!
