Review: Number 4 High Performance Hair Care Sugar Texturizing Spray #Number4 #SugarTexturizingSpray #HairCare

(product photo courtesy of www.number4hair.com)

4.9 fl.oz./145mL $22.00
I love hair care products. I especially enjoy good products for hair, mainly because I have what I call a "lion's mane" of long, thick hair that needs to be tamed. I also love styling products that help to tame my lion's mane. I have found a great product that helps to do just that. On the market there are many styling products that promise beach hair but they have salt in them. Well the product from Number 4 High Perfomance Hair Care has sugar in it instead and does a better job of giving your hair texture and waves. This product is called Sugar Texturizing SpraySugar Texturizing Spray denounces salt while heralding sugar in a declaration of love for hair texture that is perfectly undone. Transform limp, lackluster strands into loose, touchably soft, “beach inspired” waves with a nourishing blend of sugar and flexible styling aids. This product aids in style defense against humidity to help build a long-lasting relationship with texture that’s more than just a "summer fling".

Sugar Texturizing Spray achieves hair texture through simple sugar cane molecules and flexible styling aids, producing a lattice of soft structure and haphazard patterns of loose, shiny waves. Flex net resins help keep glossy texture intact despite unfavorable conditions of heat and humidity, while anti-static properties provide extra nourishment. Usually texturizing sprays are very dry and flat but this one provides great shine as well as texture. It works overtime to create any look required. It is a versatile product. Use it for braids, or to bring texture and movement into straightened flat hair. When added to dry hair you get the "just at the beach look". You can spray into hair, flip upside down and shake, voila, beach hair! For rocker chic style, apply the spray to hair that has been treated with No. 4 Support Solution and Blow Dry Lotion, then dried with a diffuser or on flat ironed/curled hair for bed-head definition. For a night out, apply to dry hair prior to updo styling for added texture. The main directions for most people will be to lightly spray onto damp or dry hair and style as desired. Air dry or blow dry with a diffuser. Enjoy the lovely beach waves! Also, the scent of this product is out of this world. It is due to Tonka Beans, Patchouli and Spanish Moss. Everyone comments on the scent and how much they love it. All Number 4 products contain the following exclusive Liquid Complex Culture™: the Liquid Vibrance™ Complex for Color Protection; the Liquid Defense™ Complex for Strength; the Liquid Vitality™ Complex for Anti-Aging and the Liquid Purity™ Complex for Clarity.

Out of all the "beach wave" hair products I have tried, this is the one I have definitely liked the best. It gave my hair soft, bouncy waves that lasted all day and I do believe it is due to the sugar that is in the formula. The sugar is also better for the hair than salt. Salt dries out the hair, leaving it feeling dry. Right now my hair is very long and does not have any layers to it, so it is difficult to get any waves into it. But I was able to get some waviness with this spray. I used it on dry hair and sprayed it, the worked it through and let it dry. Voila! Some waviness as if I had been swimming in the ocean. Below is a photo of my hair using the Sugar Texturizing Spray


Number 4 Haircare Sugare Texturizing Spray retails for $22.00 and is sold online at www.number4hair.com. It is also available at fine salons across the country.

Review: Olay Bodycare Products #Olay #BodycareProducts #BodyWash #OlayDUO #AgeDefyingBodyWash

(product photos courtesy of www.olay.com)

Yesterday I reviewed a few skincare items I received from Olay. Today I am going to review a couple of body care items I also received from them. Olay is diversified in their product range. They have skincare items for the entire body.

Soothing Orchid & Black Currant
3.1 oz./90g $9.99
Olay has come out with one of the most interesting products I have ever seen. It is called the Olay DUO Dual-Sided Body Cleanser and is something that has never been seen before. It is a dual-sided flexible, cleansing puff with body cleanser that exfoliates, cleanses and smooths skin. All you have to do is add water for a rich, cleansing lather. DUO contours along the curves of your body with a breakthrough flexible body cleanser for a close, gentle clean. After you are finished you can then hang DUO in the shower. It lasts for up to 30 uses. DUO has two sides, a cleansing side and an exfoliating side. The exfoliating side renews skin's surface deeper that a body wash puff, while the smooth side conditions skin to make it touchably soft. This product cleans 2X better that Olay's basic body wash + a puff, for an invigorating cleansing experience. The scent is amazing, it is a soothing blend of orchid and rich black currant. DUO brings together your favorite body cleansing products in one breakthrough showering experience. DUO is different because it cleanses, exfoliates, and smooths your skin all in one product. There is no need to add any soap or body wash to it, or use any extra puffs or washcloth with it!. 

To use, remove DUO from its packaging and tear open the plastic sleeve. Just add water; the cleanser inside DUO lathers with rich suds when wet. Enjoy a complete, close clean with the exfoliating side and smooth side. Use both sides as you like, DUO contours perfectly to the body's every curve. Use daily and hang to dry. When the lather fades, it's time to get a new one. It has been designed and tested to be used for up to 30 showers, or until lather fades. Do not use with other body washes, it is best to discard it and purchase a new DUO. Also, it is designed for adult use, as the lather might cause eye irritation in children. It is not designed for facial use, only for body cleansing. 

This is something I thought would be really cool. And it is. The Olay DUO Dual-Sided Body Cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and I love how well it exfoliates. The scent is so nice. It is exotic. I feel that this might be something good for travelling, if you have to travel a lot. Also, it is a great idea. The cleanser that they have inside of it is one of the best I have ever used. It is better than most body washes. I really think that most, if not all people who try this will really enjoy it. 

22 fl.oz./650mL $5.49
Olay Age Defying Body Wash With Vitamin E is one of Olay's best selling products. Why? Because with this body wash you can reveal younger-looking skin over time with this formula. Its new and advanced age-defying formula with Vitamin E deeply moisturizes skin and helps treat dryness at the source. By penetrating surface skin layer by layer, it cleans and improves the condition of your skin over time. It has unique Lock-in-Moisture Technology, to deliver all-day moisture and healthy looking skin when you cleanse head to toe. Lock-in-Moisture technology infuses skin with moisture without leaving a coated feel on the skin. All you are left with is healthy-looking skin that feels clean and smooth. With continued use, this body wash (with Olay moisturizers and Vitamin E) will give you younger-looking skin. In a clinical study, experts noticed dry skin improvement in 100% of women studied. 

Olay even offers a Money Back Guarantee that you will love this product. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with a product, they will give your money back. See website for details. 

I have very dry skin. If I take a shower and do not use lotion afterwards, my skin itches like crazy. I need a great body wash that will help moisturize my skin and leave it feeling soft, smooth, hydrated and moisturized so that I don't have to use lotion. That is a tall order. Well I was definitely able to accomplish this with Olay Age Defying Body Wash With Vitamin E. It leaves skin feeling so moisturized, soft and hydrated that skin does not feel itchy after the shower. I was very happy with this body wash and I would recommend it to all women (or men!) with dry skin. It has a nice clean scent to it, nothing overpowering. I think this might be my new body wash. 

Olay products are available at mass market retailers nationwide, such as WalgreensRite-AidCVS,WalMart and Target.

Review: Olay Skincare #Olay #Skincare #Retinol #TotalEffects #MicroSculptingCream

(product photos courtesy of www.olay.com)

Olay has been around for many, many years. They were one of the first skincare companies around. Even though their skincare is sold in mass market retailers, it works extremely well, as well as skincare that costs 400% more than the price of the brand. I received a few items to try out and I was very happy with all of them. My skin has not looked this nice in a while. Sit back, relax and read on for the reviews...

1.7 fl.oz./50mL
Olay Total Effects is the main cream behind Olay's skincare success. When it was introduced, women went nuts over it. Why? Because it works so well. It treats 7 signs of aging. This cream does the following:
  • visibly smooths fine lines and wrinkles 
  • evens skin tone
  • enhances brightness
  • minimizes the look of pores
  • visibly reduces age spots
  • restores firmness
  • replenishes moisture
Total Effects also has a variety of moisturizers with SolaSheer Technology and Broad Spectrum SPF 30. SolaSheer Technology and the Broad Spectrum SPF 30 helps protect against UVA/UVB rays from the sun, thus preventing sun damage and reducing the chance that your skin will have fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and hyperpigmentation in the future. The various moisturizers in the cream nourish with a moisturizing skin-enriching vitamin complex that helps keep skin looking healthy and rejuvenated. A few of the key ingredients in Total Effects are: Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Panthenol, Vitamin E and Glycerin. 

I have used Total Effects in the now and in the past. I have always liked this cream. It is an all around great anti-aging moisturizer that really works. For me, I noticed how well it helps with evening out my skin tone and making my skin look bright and minimizing its pores. If you are looking for a moisturizer for day, this is a good one. This is a good product for normal, dry, sensitive and combination skins. I would also say that this is for women who are in their 20's, 30's and 40's. 

1.7 fl.oz./50mL $26.99
Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream SPF30 is a powerful daytime anti-aging moisturizer with sunscreen. It is formulated with Amino-Peptides and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) to hydrate, plump and firm the skin. The lightweight moisturizer leaves skin feeling soft and immediately reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles, all while protecting the skin from UVA/UVB rays. The sun's rays are the #1 cause of premature skin aging. The cream is fast absorbing and non-greasy. 

As skin ages, it loses its ability to become responsive to anti-aging ingredients. This results in dryness, wrinkles and sagging skin. Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream reveals younger-looking skin with its unique formula. It has an advanced Amino-Peptide Complex and also hyaluronic acid that penetrates deep into the skin's surface to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The formula is designed to deliver moisturizing ingredients 10 layers deep into the skin's surface to reveal younger-looking skin. As soon as day 1, visible wrinkle results start. It improves the skin's texture in 4 weeks. 

My skin was dry when I started to use this product and it really did help to moisturize and hydrate my skin. It is not a heavy product and works great under makeup. I don't have any wrinkles, so I cannot report on that, but from what I have heard it does work well on fine lines and wrinkles. This cream is recommended for dry and normal skins. Personally, I think this is something that would work well for women in their 40's, 50's and 60's. 

1.7 oz./50mL $26.99
Regenerist is Olay's Advanced Anti-Aging Skin Care Collection. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream is one of Olay's top selling creams, and with good reason. It hydrates skin better than ten of the top creams, even better than a cream that retails for $440 (proven by Good Housekeeping)! This formula is designed with advanced anti-aging ingredients for visible wrinkle results starting the first day you use it. Infused with Hyaluronic Acid, Amino-Peptides and Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), this moisture-binding formula instantly plumps and lifts surface cells away from the skin, leaving skin looking more radiant than before. The luxurious-feeling moisturizer immediately leaves skin hydrated, softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles and firms the look of skin with plumping hydration, to help take years off your "skin age". The anti-aging moisturizing formula penetrates deep into the skin's surface to improve the skin's texture and elasticity. As mentioned previously, the older we get, the harder it is for our skin to react to skincare ingredients. That is why Olay designed Regenerist to go up to 10 layers deep into the skin's surface.

This cream was designed more for nighttime use, since the others have sunscreeen now. I like how this cream moisturizes my skin and makes it feel so soft and smooth. It really makes the texture of the skin change. This is a heavier cream than the daytime cream. I would recommend it for those with dry and normal skins. This is perfect for those in their 40's, 50's and 60's. 

0.5 fl.oz./15mL $26.99
Olay Pro Retinol Treatment for Eyes is a wonderful wrinkle-fighting cream. Using Retinyl Propionate, one of the best ways to fight wrinkles, it starts to immediately go to work on fine lines, deep wrinkles and crow's feet. You will find that it smooths skin in as little as 4 weeks. The potent formula helps increase the rate of cell turnover, which slows down as we age, to smooth the look of wrinkles. It also has strong hydrating ingredients to fortify the skin's natural moisture barrier, allowing skin to better retain moisture. This cream renews skin's surface over time for brighter skin too. 

For best results, use the targeted applicator tip to apply along wrinkles. Lightly tap product with ring finger around the whole eye area to minimize pulling or rubbing on the delicate eye area. This product has been dermatologically tested. Use morning and evening. Retinol can be strong, if irritation develops, hold back and use only once a day. 

I have just the very beginnings of fine lines under my eyes. I found that this product works extremely well, getting rid of my lines in as little as 2 weeks (like I said, they are very small). Personally, I think Retinol is one of the best anti-aging ingredients on the market. It really does work. Make sure to use an SPF when using this product, so irritation does not develop. 

Olay products are available at mass market retailers nationwide, such as Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, WalMart and Target.

Review: Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronze Coconut Perfect Tan & The Bronze Brush No.12 #MarcJacobsBeauty #OMegaBronze #TheBronzeBrush

(product photos courtesy of www,sephora.com)

This summer up your tan game with Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronze in Tan-Tan-Tastic! This oversized radiant-matte powder bronzer is perfect for the face and body. It instantly beautifies with the touch of a brush. Created with micro-fine, jet-milled powder and advanced pigment technology, O!Mega Bronzer blends seamlessly onto your skin for a flawless, radiant-matte finish. Conditioning agents ensure a smooth, silky texture, while the bronzer's universal shade, Tan-Tastic!, gives you a natural looking, even glow. For optimal bronzing, apply with the Marc Jacobs The Bronze Bronzing Brush

I finally found a bronzer that works with my pale skin tone. The color may not look right on the screen but it is a beautiful shade. It's a beautiful light brown that anyone can with light to medium-dark skin could wear. And is smells like coconut. I have never had a bronzer that worked for me before and I finally have one that looks decent on me. Usually they end up looking muddy and too orangey or too dark. It also makes a great contour shade for my cheeks.

Here is a photo of me wearing the bronzer on my cheeks and forehead:



The Marc Jacobs The Bronze-Bronzer Brush No.12 is a beautiful deluxe extra-large bronzer brush that gives your face and body an effortless, sunkissed glow, in a limited edition white handle and brush head. Created to amplify the performance of O!Mega Bronze Coconut Perfect Tan, this luxurious brush (made with synthetic, anti-bacterial hair) was designed with a generous, extra-wide shape and feather-soft bristles for a natural-looking, perfectly blended tan. Extremely easy to apply on the face and body, use this brush for a fool-proof finish and instant bronzing success.

This is the perfect brush to use with the Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronze Coconut Perfect Tan. That product is large and needs a large brush that has compact bristles which can apply the powder in a neat fashion. This brush does exactly that. I love how it picks up just the right amount of powder and applies it without being too heavy. And it blends like a dream. It is just about the best brush I have ever used. 

Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronze Coconut Perfect Tan is available at www.sephora.com and SEPHORA stores. The Marc Jacobs Beauty The Bronze-Bronzer Brush No.12 is available at www.sephora.com, www.marcjacobs.com/beauty and at SEPHORA stores. Like Marc Jacobs Beauty on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/MarcJacobsBeauty; Follow Marc Jacobs Beauty on Twitter: @MarcBeauty; Follow Marc Jacobs on Instagram: http://instagram.com/marcjacobsbeauty# and Subscribe to Marc Jacobs on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/MarcJacobsBeauty. Like SEPHORA on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Sephora?ref=br_tf; Follow SEPHORA on Twitter: @Sephora, Follow SEPHORA on Pinterest: http://www.pinterest.com/Sephora/; Follow SEPHORA on Instagram: http://instagram.com/SEPHORA#; Subscribe to SEPHORA on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9YX5x_VU8gfe0Oui0TaLJg; Follow on Google+: https://plus.google.com/+ Sephora/posts; Follow SEPHORA on Wanelo: http://wanelo.com/sephora and Follow SEPHORA on Tumblr: http://theglossy.sephora.com/.

Review: Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist #KatVonD #LockIt #MakeupSettingMist

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

4.0 fl.oz./120mL $26.00
Makeup setting mists are perfect for anytime of the year, but are essential for summer to keep your makeup from melting off in the heat. Kat Von D Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist is one of the best on the market at keeping makeup on your face instead of having it kind of slide off and look ruined. It is a refreshing, weightless micro-mist that locks in makeup for up to 24 hours, a full 8 hours longer than other setting sprays. This unstoppable formula has a luxurious, soft mist for an upgraded experience. The advanced misting system features an aerosol-alternative sprayer to deliver the continuous fine mist of an aerosol in an environmentally friendly format. This refreshing, weightless spray keeps your makeup looking fresh and vibrant for a up to 24-hours. It is ideal for all skin types and it is powerful enough to lock-in looks yet light enough to wear all day, every day. Skin stays comfortable with a blend of naturally refreshing ingredients and a light cucumber scent for an instant boost. The setting mist feels totally undetectable on the skin, with no tightness or sticky residue. The advanced ultra-fine mist system dispenses a higher concentration of micro-droplets to prevent uneven application and wet spots on the face. Because Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist's application is so light and soft, you can hold the mister as close as you’d like to your face, for better accuracy and control. Lock-It Makeup Setting Mist contains Kat Von D's original Lock ‘N’ Load Setting Spray formula, with a revamped look and upgraded experience. This product is vegan, completely free of any animal derived ingredients and her products are never tested on animals. 

In a consumer research study on 30 volunteers:
  • 100% agreed makeup did not crack
  • 97% agreed this setting mist has a smooth, non-sticky fee when it sets
  • 97% agreed makeup has less caking throughout the day
  • 93% agreed skin looked smoother and more even
  • 93% agreed makeup looked more vibrant
  • 93% agreed makeup did not melt
  • 90% agreed makeup did not smudge throughout the day
I've tried many makeup setting sprays. This is definitely one of the best, if not the best one I have tried. Why? Because of the fine mist that it produces. It does not produce large droplets that just land on the face like others do. The mist is so fine and it dries quickly, you can have your makeup set in no time flat. Like all of the Kat Von D line, it is a high quality product with much care and thought put into it. With this setting spray, I can spray closer to my face, which means I can spray my eyes (closed of course), and get the makeup not to melt off in the heat. I am VERY happy with this product. Very.

Review: Marc Jacobs Beauty Re(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting Mist #MarcJacobsBeauty #ReCover #PerfectingCoconutSettingMist

(product photo courtesy of www.sephora.com)

3.8 fl.oz./112mL $39.00
After your makeup is finished, what do you need to keep it all in place for the rest of the day, especially in the heat of the summer? A makeup setting spray. Today I am going to review the Marc Jacobs Re(Cover) Perfecting Coconut Setting MistThis makeup setting spray was inspired by Marc Jacobs' love of coconut water. Marc Jacobs Beauty makes a great one that has the power of 24-hour performance behind it. Revive your glow and set and perfect your makeup with this next-level setting mist. It combines 24-hour performances with hydrating, skin loving coconut actives: coconut alkanes for lasting wear, coconut milk for deep hydration, coconut water for refreshing electrolytes, coconut polysaccharides to help condition skin and coconut-derived fragrance for a delicate, delicious experience. This fine micro-mist gives a healthy-looking, dewy glow to the complexion, at the same time locking in makeup so that it stays put and looks fresh all day long. Formulated with freeze-frame technology, it sets makeup for an entirely new sensation. Skin is left feeling comforted and nourished, never sticky or filmy. 

I think this is one of the best makeup setting sprays I have ever used. It smells absolutely divine. And it does keep makeup looking fresh all day long, especially in the heat we have had.. I spray it on immediately after doing my makeup, so that my makeup does not have any chance to melt off. The best way to use it is to spray it 10-12 inches from the face (with eyes closed, do NOT inhale) and spray 2-3 times. Let set. Voila! Your makeup will now be set for 24 hours. You can go to work, out do dinner and drinks and then dancing. You could even put it in the refrigerator for a more refreshing experience during the summer. I am very happy with this product and I hope it becomes a regular in the Marc Jacobs Beauty line.

Review: HASK Charcoal Purifying Dry Shampoo #HASK #CharcoalPurifying #DryShampoo

Sometimes there is nothing better than a dry shampoo for those days when you either cannot wash your hair or you don't want to wash your hair. Dry shampoo is great for refreshing your hair's style, getting rid of unwanted extraneous oil and dirt in the hair and giving it an overall freshness that is needed.

HASK makes four wonderful Dry Shampoos (6.5oz./184g; $7.99). They are: Argan Dry Shampoo, Coconut Dry Shampoo, Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo and Charcoal Purifying Dry Shampoo. Each of the main ingredients helps with a different problem that you may be having with your hair, thus the dry shampoo can help alleviate the problem. I was able to try out the Charcoal Purifying Dry Shampoo and will be reviewing it below. First I would like to tell you a little bit about the other dry shampoos that HASK makes though, so you can make an informed decision about which one you might want the most. All of the dry shampoos are free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten and artificial colors.

ARGAN DRY SHAMPOO: It is infused with an orange citrus scent and has long-lasting oil absorption. Removing excess oil from your hair is now easier than lather, rinse and repeat. Skip a wash or extend the life of your style with this lightweight, Argan infused formula that will leave your second day hair even fresher than the first. An ultra-fine rice starch acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor, leaving hair feeling revived, bouncy and clean. Saving time has never been this glamorous!

COCONUT DRY SHAMPOO:
This dry shampoo is infused with a tropical coconut scent and has long-lasting oil absorption. It's very easy to remove excess oil now more than ever. Skip a wash or extend the life of your style with this lightweight, coconut infused formula that will leave your second day hair even fresher than the first. It contains ultra-fine rice starch that acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor leaving hair feeling bouncy, vibrant and clean. This is the tropical escape your hair has been waiting for!


CHIA SEED VOLUMIZING DRY SHAMPOO: The Chia Seed Volumizing Dry Shampoo is infused with a floral tea scent and also has long-lasting oil absorption. This is your ultimate hair care pick-me-up. Do more than lather, rinse and repeat. Skip a wash and extend your style with this lightweight, chia seed infused formula to transform hair from lifeless to voluminous. With ultra-fine rice starch, it acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor. Hair is left voluminous, bouncy and clean. Amping up your beauty routine has never been this easy!




CHARCOAL PURIFYING DRY SHAMPOO: This is the one I tried. It is infused with a botanical citrus scent and has a very long-lasting oil absorption. That is what charcoal is famous for. Like all HASK products, it is free of: sulfates, parabens, phthalates, gluten and artificial colors. This is for an oilier hair and scalp. This dry shampoo makes is extremely easy to skip a wash or extend the life of a style with a very lightweight formula that will leave your second day hair even cleaner than just after you shampooed it! The product contains an ultra-fine rice starch that is infused with charcoal powder that acts quickly to soak up oil, sweat and odor. It leaves hair feeling soft, clean and fresh. The days of oily hair are so over!

The best way to use it is to shake the product well before and in-between uses. Section off hair, hold can 6-10 inches from head and spray onto roots. Wait 30 seconds and then brush through or massage with fingertips. Voila! Fresh hair!

I found this product to work extremely well on oily hair. Even my daughter, who also has oily hair, thought it worked very well for her. We both liked that it seemed to just suck up the oil immediately, and it just disappeared. This product is extraordinary in its performance.

HASK Hair products are available at mass market retailers and Ulta Beauty stores.
