A self-tanner worth trying...

Faux Tan by Bare Escentuals

This self-tanner is SO WORTH TRYING! It is green based (not to panic haha)
which is a good thing because it will not give you  that orangey look
and doesn't rub off onto your clothes.
Make sure to follow directions: and apply at night!!
Word of Advice: Before you use any self-tanner, EXFOLIATE!!

This self-tanner is a bit on the pricey side but the outcome is worth it!
Who wouldn't want a real dark tan without spending time and energy and the tanning salon?
I highly recommend this product, and tell all your friends about it too!

Click this click and it will take you directly to Faux Tan on the Bare Escentuals website:
or can be found where most Bare Escentuals is sold for around $22.00

Remember: Most of us feel better and look better with a nice tan! :)
I mean, don't ya think?

I love my new scrub!!

Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub
I had stopped at the Clinique counter recently and talked to a lady (named Danielle too) about the condition of my skin lately. It has been breaking out and I have had dry patches in different areas. She explained to be that not only do I need to stay on top of my daily 8-10 glasses of water and vitamins, but that I really needed to look into finding gentle cleansers and scrubs. She actually recommends gentle cleansers and scrubs to everyone because of how delicate our skin is. So I did a little research and shopping around for the best gentle scrub in price range. I ran across this scrub when I was at Walmart and what first grabbed me was the word "Natural" and the smell (it's to die for). I have been using this for about a week now and I absolutely love it! This scrub is said to gently scrub away impurities that can build up in pores to improve complexion for fresh, clear skin. Willowbark bionutrient and Jojoba beads scrub and detoxify the pores. It's suitable for acne prone skin, gentle enough for everyday use, won't clog pores, and it's hypoallergenic. This new Naturals line from Neutrogena boasts skincare products that contain no harsh chemical sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes or phthalates and is also a dermatologist recommended brand.

This scrub has been carefully formulated to be 94% naturally derived
and the other ingredients are essential to blend this product together and
to maintain the effectiveness. This product was also NOT tested on animals!! :)

My skin thanks me for finding this wonderful product!
I recommend you give this a shot if you have also been looking for a gentle scrub.

I found this product at Walmart but I'm sure you can also find
it at most drugstores too for around $6.00!

If you try this let me know what ya think :)
and I'm considering trying the entire line of Neutrogena Naturals.
If you use any of the other products, let me know how efficient those are too!


Too Faced

By far one of my favorite eye shadow palettes right now is...

Too Faced Natural Eye Palette

This is my first time experiencing Too Faced eye shadows and am very very impressed!
The shadows are soft and easy to blend and are super pigmented. A lot goes along way.
This palette can be very versatile; the colors are natural and easy to wear,
but at the same time there are so many different possibilities with just these 9 colors.
You can go from daytime to nighttime and dramatic with just this one palette.

Shades include: Heaven (matte ivory), Velvet Revolver (matte taupe),
Sexspresso (matte deep brown), Silk Teddy (peach champagne shimmer),
Push-Up (light bronze shimmer), Erotica (soft charcoal shimmer),
Nude Beach (champagne shimmer with gold glitter), Honey Pot (gold shimmer),
Cocoa Puff (warm chocolate brown shimmer).

This palette has a pull out drawer below with a double sided applicator
and also three "how-to" cards with different looks including: Day, Fashion, Classic.

I am definitely in love with this palette so far and look forward to
all the many looks I will be able to create with it!! :)

I purchased this at Ulta for $35.00 (worth every cent) but can also
be purchased at Sephora or at either one of their websites:
