Review: Stemology Cell Reboot Ageless Mask with StemCore-3 #Stemology #StemologyBeauty #mask #CellRebootAgelessMask

Stemology Cell Reboot Ageless Mask with Stem Core-3
I love a good mask. Masks help to take skincare to the next level. They exfoliate, firm, cleanse and do things with skin that serums, creams and cleansers cannot do. Masks are good to do at least once per week, preferably twice a week. Also, you get to relax, which is a rarity these days. So grab this mask, lay down and close your eyes and let the ingredients soak into the skin, help give it a nice glow and recharge. Stemology’s Cell Reboot Ageless Mask with StemCore-3TM is one of those rare masks that does more than one thing: it lets you relax while actually working on the skin in numerous ways. This is serious skincare,
Stemology is the first, and only brand, that brings together human and plant based stem cell technology into skincare products. Their patented StemCore-3TM is a proprietary stem cell based peptide complex. 

This brand is based upon the formulations of founder Dr. Hal Simeroth. Stemology has accomplished the singular ability to help prevent and improve upon the number one cause of aging skin: skin’s decline in collagen and elastin, which results in skin that is dull, thin, wrinkled, and lacking in firmness and elasticity. StemCore-3TM technology promises to be effective yet is ethically formulated. It does not contain any DNA or stem cell matter. It is all natural and intelligently organic whenever it is possible. StemCore-3TM is one of the most comprehensive, efficacious formulas on the market today. StemCore-3TM promises superior anti-aging efficacy. 

Stemology Cell Reboot Ageless Mask with StemCore-3TM is an exfoliating mask that also tightens, lifts and cleanses skin. It reveals skin that is brighter and more radiant with one use. This mask has a breakthrough formula. It provides immediate lifting and tightening, with visible results that can be seen after just one use. Squalane, carrot seed, meadowfoam seed and Argan oils provide regenerative support. And these oils also restructure for smoother skin and optimal cellular function. Oat kernel extract, which has been clinically shown to have immediate anti-wrinkle impact on the skin, is included in the formula. Hyaluronic acid attracts and binds moisture to the skin, leaving it fuller, plumper and more youthful looking. This mask is aloe vera based, which means that it not only is not water based (which means that the ingredients are definitely more high end), aloe vera is very soothing to the skin and can help skin irritation. The entire mask is made from botanicals. Too many to list here. I will say that some of the ones I do want to list here are: pumpkin, glycolic acid, sugar cane extract, green tea extract, lemon extract, sweet almond seed extract, sugar maple extract, sea kelp, orange fruit extract, gotu kola extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, rosemary extract, lactobacillus, papaya fruit extract and many, many more that would take way too much space to list. This entire mask is made from natural ingredients and botanicals. It is full of exfoliants, anti-oxidants and soothing ingredients. Oils and botanicals lift, tighten and firm the skin. 

The mask comes in a container that is airtight, so it will not dry out. It has a top that you press down and the mask comes out  a small hole in the top. Keep pressing down to get the mask to come out until you have enough. This keeps the mask from drying out and it keeps it from becoming contaminated too. To use, apply to clean, dry skin. Apply to face, neck and décolleté. Leave on for 15-20 minutes, until mask feels dry. Rinse with warm water and a wash cloth until skin is clear and clean. Because this mask contains many exfoliants it may increase sensitivity to the sun. So, make sure to wear sunscreen of SPF 30 or more during the day. Sun exposure should be limited after use. I would use this mask at night if you know that it makes your skin sensitive to the sun, as it does have many exfoliants. 

The best thing about this mask is that it is all natural and works. The exfoliants in it are of good quality and they do a great job of leaving skin feeling exfoliated, soft, smooth and skin is left feeling very supple. Old, dead skin is gone and new, younger skin is in its place. Skin also feels tighter and more firm.Using this mask for several weeks will make your skin look and feel younger. It will glow and people will ask you what kind of work you have had done!

Stemology Cell Reboot Ageless Mask with StemCore-3TM retails for $85.00 for a 1.76 oz./ 50 g jar and can be purchased online at www.stemologyskincare.com; for store locators look here: http://stemologyskincare.com/store-locator/.

Win A JGOB Makeup Sponge!


I am a big fan of the makeup sponge to use for foundation. I love the brand name ones but the JGOB is just as good. It can be purchased off of Amazon.com for $11.97 (http://amzn.to/1LbafGQ) whereas the original ones are $19.95 each. The JGOB brand lasts just as long, if not longer when cleaned daily. I use soap to clean mine. I think that using these sponges for makeup application makes a huge difference in the way foundation is applied. It goes on smoother, faster and looks better. Much better than with hands or a brush. Hands are too messy and a brush does not really get the smooth look as the sponge does.

Sally Hansen and Stella McCartney Summer 2016 Nail Look #SallyHansen #ArmCandy #StellaMcCartney


As the exclusive nail sponsor of Stella McCartney Collections in 2016, Sally Hansen freshened up the look, on the Stella McCartney Summer 2016 catwalk in Paris Fashion Week, with a subtle and modern nude nail. To accessorize the effortlessly elegant in the designer’s collection, Sally Hansen’s Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole elevated bare nails by using an understated sheer polish that sent clean nudes down the runway.

Revealing the nude nail’s unexpected potential for uniqueness, Madeline Poole used two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in “Arm Candy,” maintaining a neutral aesthetic.

“We wanted to reflect and compliment the explosion of colour, energy and movement within the collection by celebrating a true summer beauty look that is fresh and natural, while also embracing the individuality of women” – says Stella McCartney
“We're using a sheer pale pink "Arm Candy" for Stella's SS16 show. Stella's whimsical and mixed use of color and pattern need a nail that's understated and low maintenance. This is a look that anyone can wear - a sheer polish looks refined and subtle on any shape nail bed and any skin tone. "Arm Candy" leaves a bit of the natural nail showing through so it creates a custom finish for each girl.” – says Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador


Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Arm Candy
sally hansen arm candy
Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection infuses trend-setting shades with an expert quality formula to deliver salon-caliber results. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure delivers seven salon manicure steps in one bottle. Chip resistant strength joins gel-quality shine. Must-have color meets nourishing benefits. Plus, a built-in base and top coat, it’s everything you need to achieve a professional manicure at home.


An explosion of colour, energy and movement. A true celebration of summer, exuding a vivacious and liberated spirit.
A feeling of fearlessness is expressed through the unexpected layering of masculine bold checks and stripes to create a play on feminine transparency with rich andgraphic textures.
Contrast color pleated dresses quiver and float in sharp sculptural layers of bright blue, spring green, chili redand pink. Either thigh-skimming or floor-grazing, their engineered hemlines rise and fall to reveal tempting flashes of leg.
Knitwear sits close to the skin. Polo tops in wrapping shapes with sporty striped edging. Pleated ribs with cut-aways stretch to reveal slices of sky, berry and mint. Raw indigo denim is highly structured with visible white stitching, whilst two-toned ribs with undulating movement feature extreme fringing. 
Clean tailoring reflects the ease of summer in dusty rose, tan and black. Trousers are wide, yet the silhouette is elongated and free, retaining a sensual connection to the body. Monochrome statements in organic cotton piqué shirting and black summer knit tailoring. Scoop necklines expose and accentuate the female form.
Inspired by abstract sculptures, ribbons are distilled into primitive swirls and refined spirals layered on embroidered mesh in pure white and black, or chili red on berry. 
A unique airtex effect is created using transparent eyelet embroidery. Asymmetric or floor length, they stand out in acid shades of lemon, bright orange, cobalt blue, and black and white. 
Accessories include a modern take on the Riviera opensandals with sporty soles. Cherry tinted sustainable wooden platform clogs in nude, tan and black. Wicker and alter nappa bags with round buckles and gold chainmail. Oversize aviator sunglasses with a square color contrasted detail, in a palette that compliments the tones of the season.

Trained as a painter, Madeline worked odd jobs like vintage poster restoration as an art student in Baltimore. Her unique talent in crafting innovative designs, emphasis on skin care and attention to the hand as a whole makes her one of the most sought after names in the beauty industry. As part of the collaboration with Sally Hansen, Madeline helps setting the artistic direction for a new generation of modern nail looks and collections with her fashion-forward vision on a worldwide basis.

Review: NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss #NYXCosmetics #IntenseButterGloss

(product photo courtesy of www.nyxcosmetics.com)

NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss
NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss is smooth, buttery and full of pigment. Smoother lips with a silky lipgloss that is bursting with color. It has the same mouthwatering texture and scent of the original formula but with even more color payoff. 

Intense Butter Gloss comes in 12 delectable shades: Sorbet (baby pink), Tres Leches (nude), Napoleon (Bright tea rose pink), Berry Strudel (Violet with blue undertone), Spice Cake (deep plum), Toasted Marshmallow (mauve purple), Black Cherry Tart (deep vamp purple), Apple Crisp (true red with blue undertone), Orangesicle (orange), Banana Split (pastel peach) and Chocolate Crepe  (deep beige). I tried three of the shades: Tres Leches, Orangesicle and Banana Split. These colors are definitely intense. And they wear extremely well. I adore the colors.

(above: wearing Intense Butter Gloss in Orangesicle, muted and blotted  with a little lip liner)

The Intense Butter Gloss has very intense pigment. I just muted it a little bit in these photos by wearing it over nude lipliner. I like to wear nude lipliner under my lip colors. The pigments in the glosses are very thick and make the gloss luscious and it goes on smoothly. Intense Butter Gloss lasts a very long time too. It is a very thick and rich gloss. I hope they come out with more colors in this line. I would love to see a whole nude selection in this line, since I love nude lipglosses. They have two shades that are of the nude variety but I would love to see at least 6 that are nude shades. I would also like to see more pink shades that are wearable in everyday life. Some of these shades are more fantasy shades that are avant garde edgy shades, and there is nothing wrong with that as I like to wear those too but this gloss deserves its own nude and pink shades that would sell real well. 

NYX Cosmetics Intense Butter Gloss retails for $6.00 and can be purchased online at www.nyxcosmetics.com and in UltaCVS and soon NYX Cosmetics  Flagship stores.

Review: Neocell Alpha Cell Exfoliator, Step ll #Neocell #AlphaCellExfoliator #AHA

(product photo courtesy of www.iherb.com)

Neocell Alpha Cell Exfoliator Step II, 4 fl. oz./118ml

NeoCell Alpha Cell Exfoliator
This exfoliant has natural fruit acids that help get rid of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. What is revealed is fresh, new, younger looking skin. It helps to smooth away lines, evens skin tone and revives skin so that it has a youthful radiance. This exfoliant contains glycolic acid, sugar cane extract, citrus extract, apple extract, kola extract and also green tea extract for an anti-oxidant effect. Use after cleansing skin. Apply with a cotton ball over clean, dry skin. Do not apply around the eye area to avoid contact with eyes. 

For me this was very gentle, but I am used to products with a high amount of acid in them. I can handle something like this easily. If you are not used to products with alpha hydroxy acids in it, start off with something like this and work up to something stronger. This is just about the perfect exfoliant as it helps to take away the dead skin cells all while leaving skin feeling soft, supple and toned. It also leaves skin feeling radiant. Use daily, twice a day if you are used to products with AHA’s in them or once a day if you are not. 

You will find that your skin looks much better after using this, It will appear clearer, brighter and will be softer and smoother. all around. AHA’s help to loosen up dead skin cells and  then removes them, so that new fresh skin cells shine through, The fresh new cells normally take about 30 days to get to the top of the epidermis but when the old dead skin cells are removed these skin cells are brought to the surface earlier. I like this product a lot and believe it will be great for all skin types, eve acneic skins. It will work especially well with dry and acneic skin types. Dry skins tend to hold onto dead sin cells. Acneic skins need to rid their pores of dead skin cells to that their pimples can be reduced and oily skins will also benefit form this as it will cut down on sebum production. 

Neocell Alpha Cell Exfoliator retails for $5.73 and can be purchased online at www.iherb.com. for a 4 fl.oz./118 mL bottle.

Review: BOOST CELLULAR Youth Control Bi-Phase Ampoules #DOCTORBABOR #BoostCellular #ampoules #biphaseampoules #BABOR

(product photo courtesy of www.babor.com)
DOCTOR BABOR Boost Cellular  Youth Control Bi-Phase Ampoules
BABOR skincare is widely known for its excellence in the skincare field, with products that bring about great results. BABOR started in 1956, in Germany, with the black rose (the symbol of infinite beauty). The line is a professional line, meaning that it is sold in salons and spas and is used primarily by estheticians. Their precision formulas are based on the most innovative active ingredients. Their effect is enhanced by the expertise of BABOR estheticians and the luxurious, tailor made treatments, which were specially designed to provide maximum results. The DOCTOR BABOR line is targeted towards the cellular level of skincare. 

BABOR is backed by extensive scientific research. Teams of scientists including dermatologists, geneticists, biochemists, molecular biologists, physicians and diabetologists work together with renowned universities and other leading research institutes to continuously produce groundbreaking innovations, made in Germany. They utilize raw materials sourced from organic farming methods and based on renewable resources. They do not animal test and have been against animal testing since the company first started in 1956. 

The DOCTOR BABOR Youth Control Bi-Phase Ampoules target fine lines, firm and contour the skin. The ampoules visibly reduce the depth of lines, they firm the skin and they define the contours of the face. The ampoules contain Alaria esculenta, maltotriose1-6 polysaccharide and amaranth oil. These ingredients helps stimulate natural hyaluronic acid synthesis in the skin and boost cellular energy reserves. The results are that skin appears noticeably smoother, firmer and younger looking. 

To open and use the ampoule, shake it well until both of the phases are completely blended. Wrap a tissue around the neck of the ampoule or the enclosed ampoule opener. With your other hand, grasp the neck of the ampoule and snap it open at the lower, colored ring or use the enclosed opener. Pour the fluid into the palm of your hand and smooth it over your face, neck and décolleté. 

I used this product for a good three weeks. I definitely noticed that my skin felt smoother. When I mean smoother, I mean that it was as soft and smooth as a baby’s bottom. My skin was already pretty soft but this was even more soft. And now it is so smooth that there are no bumps or anything of that variety on my skin. It is also very firm. I was very happy with the performance of the ampoules. I think that if you are on the lookout for something to smooth and firm the skin, these would be a good choice for you. DOCTOR BABOR also has two other ampoules that work well, the Glow Booster Bi-Phase Ampoules and the Stress Relief Bi-Phase Ampoules. I would be very interested in trying those out too. Especially the Glow Booster Bi-Phase Ampoules. Who would not want to get their glow back?

DOCTOR BABOR Youth Control Bi-Phase Ampoules retail for $109.00 (14 mL). It is available from www.us.babor.com. Like BABOR on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BABORNorthAmerica; Follow BABOR on Twitter: @BABORCosmetics and Follow BABOR on Instagram: https://instagram.com/baborofficial.
