Shellac Update

2 weeks passed and as promised I am giving y’all an update on my experience with the gel nail treatment. If you missed my initial post, check it out here.

After 2 weeks the nails were STILL shinning so as far as staying glossy and wet-looking, Shellac nails deliver. And that’s not all…

LUSH Bath Bomb: Dragon’s Egg…yummy!

Not that I actually tasted this thing. That would be bad. VERY bad. Watching this bath bomb spin around in the tub reminded me of orange sherbet. My Grandma in Miami and I would eat that ALL the time.

Doesn’t that look cool?

Dragon’s Egg is a citrus-y bath bomb with notes of lemon and bergamot. It smells divine but what it DOES is even better. After spinning and twirling and going from color to color, it oozes beautiful gold glitter everywhere.

It was small enough to where it didn’t irritate my skin but left me in a beautiful tub of orange water. I loved this one. It may be AS good as my Twilight bath bomb.

Have you tried Dragon’s Egg bath bomb yet?

Kiss My Face Olive & Aloe Soap. But it’s not purty.

I’m a total Kiss My Face fan but I’m on the fence about this soap.

It has a grassy/plant-y smell and the color of the bar isn’t all that attractive. The saving grace of this soap, however, is how good it makes my skin feel. And it contains so few ingredients that you don’t have to worry about your skin flaring up. The aloe is soothing and the olive oil is moisturizing. They are available in several fragrances (Olive & Honey, Olive & Tea Tree, Olive & Lavender, etc) and you can snag 4 bars for under $5.99.

Still. There’s something about the color of the bar that makes me unhappy. Am I exaggerating? Whatcha think?

 

POLL: Can AMBI’s mark minimizer reduce my dark spot?

Yes, I said it. I have dark spots. Do I really need to remind you about the most recent one?

Yeah. Hmm mmm…it’s a dark spot in the middle…of my forehead. But AMBI’s Even and Clear Targeted Mark Minimizer (say that 3x fast) looks promising.

After all, it SAYS that it’ll reduce dark marks and discolorations. According to the website, I’ll see results in as little as 2 weeks. Alrighty then, AMBI. We shall see. It retails for under $13 and I’ve got high hopes.

Places your bets, lovelies. Will AMBI help to fade my dark spot a bit? Or will it be just as dark in 2 weeks?

Pretty perfumed pits – Thanks Lady Speed Stick!

It’s Springtime, lovelies! And that means I’ve been spending a lot more time outside. I love that I am able to get home after work and get a good run in outside before the sun runs away from me. And no antiperspirant works harder for me than Lady Speed Stick.

The newest scent, Enchanted Cherry Blossom may be a little too fragrant for me at first swipe, but it became faint throughout the day. Buuuut, it didn’t stop working nor did it irritate my sensitive armpits.

Whaaaat? I can’t be the only one with sensitive armpits. Go ahead and laugh it up. All I care about is fresh smellin’ pits. 8) In the market for a new deodorant? I’d recommend this one!

 

How NYC New York Color’s Lip Stain brought out my fierceness

Yay for new lip stains on the market! I’ve reviewed lip stains before but that was back when I was a itty bitty beauty blogger. Now that I’m slightly mature *pops imaginary collar* I can formally review these with flare and prestige.

Or somethin’ like that. 8) Hit the jump to get the skinny on NYC New York Color’s newest lippie.
