Review: Key West Aloe Comfortcaine Insant Sunburn Relief #KeyWestAloe #Comfortcaine #sunburn #KWA

(product photo courtesy of www.keywestaloe.com)


Since I have a tendency to get sunburned, I took this product to Greece with me rencetly and I will say, it helped save the day. I got burned one time and it soothed my red, irritated skin lovingly and made the pain and burning go away quickly and easily. Even now that summer is going away, it can still be used. But funny thing is, I know people that are still going on summer vacations to warm summer places, so you may want to take this with you. This product is a wonder all. It soothes and releives sunburns, soothes, soothes and comforts abrasions and relieves regular burns, insect bites, helps with psoriasis and all because of a great formula. It contains 94% aloe vera and 4% lidocaine. The also vera does the actual work of soothing and lidocaine takes away the pain. 

This product should only be used on children 2 years old or older. Apply liberally to affected area not more than 3-4 times a day and use until area is healed. 

This product does work and works well. It does a great job on sunburns, regular burns, insect bites and abrasions too. I have not tried it with psoriasis but I imagine it would help to soothe an heal the irritations from that disease. 

Key West Aloe Comfortcaine Instant Sunburn Relief retails for $13.00 andis is available online from www.keywestaloe.com and in various stores across the country.

Review: Method Naturally Derived Refreshing Body Wash #Method #bodywash #showergel

(product photos courtesy of www.methodhome.com)

18 fl.oz./532mL $5.99
method makes products for every room in the house. They started with cleaning products and branched out from there. Recently they started to make body wash. I was sent two of the scents to try out. I was sent lilac blossom and mandarin mango from the Naturally Derived Refreshing Body Wash Line. These are enriches with avocado extract and Vitamin E. You can definitely feel good about lathering yourself up with this body wash because its ingredients come from naturally derived sources. Simply give yourself a scrub for velvety soft suds, then rinse for a refreshingly clean finish. I loved the scent of the lilac blossom. It is intoxicating. The mandarin mango was nice too but for me the lilac blossom was just so much more suited to my fragrance palette. The Refreshing Body Wash line also comes in green tea + aloe and waterfall scents. 

The Body Wash line also comes in Foaming Body Wash and a Moisturizing Body Wash lines. The Foaming Body Wash comes in a variety of scents: water flower, sea mist, cucumber mint and ruby orange. They are meant to be more bubbly, leaving the skin feeling hydrated, soft and refreshed. These are also $5.99 per bottle. The Moisturizing Body Wash line also comes in four scents: coconut milk, magnolia, olive leaf and surfside. They are meant to be for drier skins and are packed with naturally derived moisturizers and infused with nourishing aloe to leave skin soft, hydrated and beautifully clean. They also cost $5.99 per bottle. Both of these lines bottles are 18 fl.oz./532mL per bottle.

Method can be purchased online at www.methodhome.com, www.target.com, and at Target stores.

Review: Shaveworks Pearl Polish Dual Action Body Oil #Shaveworks #PearlPolish #shavingoil #showeroil

(product photo courtesy of www.ulta.com)


Shaveworks Pearl Polish Dual Action Body Oil is a gentle cleanser and a luxurious shave oil that helps to reduce irritation from shaving while providing a long-lasting shave. Use every day as a luxurious body cleanser. Simply mix with water and watch it transform into a smooth milky foam that cleanses and softens skin. This oil can also be used while shaving. Massage a small amount onto legs, bikini area or underarms during or after a shower. Rinse after every other stroke for the smoothest shave. Rinse with warm water. 

Believe me, this is so much better than any regular shaving cream. It leaves legs, underarms and bikini feeling smooth as silk. And then they look shiny too! I love this oil. I tried it as a bath oil and it worked well too. It was rich and had a nice lather. But the bottle is small and it would be expensive to use this as shower oil. I'll stick with using it as shaving oil. It works really well as that and makes my legs as smooth as glass.

The London-based celebrity makeup artist just launched a limited-edition lipstick in honor of The Queen, Elizabeth II. In her cult-favorite buildable, hydrating matte formula, The Queen is a rich, rosy crown-jewel pink lipstick – a shade that compliments each and every skin tone, and is the perfect color heading into the colder months.

Shiva Rose Saffron Rose Scrub #ShivaRose #SaffronRoseScrub

Shiva Rose Saffron Rose Scrub, $58, ShivaRose.com
The newest addition to the non-toxic skincare line created by holistic guru Shiva Rose is the gentle yet powerful Saffron Rose Scrub that is perfect for every age group. This revolutionary facial scrub comes in the form of a powder, which you blend with a few drops of water or rosewater before applying to the face. You let it dry for 10 minutes and can either simply rinse with warm water, or scrub in an upwards circular motion while rinsing the face.

The scrub is a marriage of powerful ingredients from the ancient wisdom of Persian and Ayurvedic beauty rituals. Chickpea flour is the star ingredient: it creates flawless skin by removing impurities and dirt without stripping the skin, acts like an antioxidant battling dark spots and acne scars, and balances pH while restoring moisture to the skin. Saffron brightens the skin and improves blood flow, while the fat of the anti-aging coconut milk is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K, protein and copper. Turmeric heals breakouts, scars and inflammation while Sandalwood Oil & Powder shrinks pores and strengthens the skin’s firmness. 



Review: Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick #KatVonD #StuddedKissLipstick #lipstick

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

I had been wanting to try Kat Von D Studded Kiss Lipstick for a very long time. Luckily I was sent 5 shades to try out. I was sent Wonderchilde (metallic), Gothica (metallic), Agatha (matte), Noble (matte) and Coven (matte). My favorites by far are Noble and Coven. Noble is the lightest matte petal pink nude and is a cult favorite. Coven is a matte lavender and actually looks pretty good on my lips and does not make me look like a corpse. Agatha is also a cult favorite and is a matte pale peach nude. It is just slightly different than Noble. Wonderchilde is awesome. It is a beautiful metallic iridescent neon lilac. And Gothica is a metallic sparkling bronze. I have fallen in love with these lipsticks. They are absolutely amazing. The pigments are great, the staying power is great and all in all they are just wonderful lipsticks in general. I have nothing bad to say about them. I want more, many, many more of them.
Below are swatches of the lipsticks:

Review: Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette #KatVonD #SerpentinaPalette

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette $45.00


I love Kat Von D Cosmetics. Love them. I was sent the Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palettte to try out and review. Let me say that this is the perfect fall eyeshadow palette. The colors in it iare bright but lend themselves to fall color palettes. There are 8 eyeshadows in the palette and 1 loose pigment. The eyeshadow are as follows: bloodsmith (matte red), medusa (glittery gold), ankh (glittery black), queen (deep burgundy reddish purple), hieroglyph (bright shimmery orange pumpkin), nile (bright shimmery blue), scarab (shimmery evergreen) and venom (matte bright purple). The loose pigment is called prophet and is a loose glittery gold. My only gripe about this palette is that there really isn't a good color to but under the brows. Even the loose glitter comes off as somewhat dark when used there. Otherwise though, this is a kick ass palette with colors that are beautiful together.
Here are some looks that I have done with this palette:
above: venom lining the upper lid, nile on the upper lid and ankh in the crease, prophet under the brow, ankh linking the lower lid

The Kat Von D Serpentina Eyeshadow Palette is sold out on www.sephora.com, but there are still some in SEPHORA stores. It retails for $45.00. It is definitely worth getting if you are a fan of Kat Von D. The eyeshadows are incredibly pigmented, soft and creamy. I love them. I only had problems with the matte shadow being slightly less creamy than the shimmery ones.
