Halo Top Review

Halo Top Review

Halo Top Review

Maybe you had a few too many chocolate candies for Valentine’s Day, or maybe you’re watching what you eat as part of a New Year’s Resolution.  Regardless of the reason, it’s always tough to stay on a plan for a long time if there’s no room for a treat.  I had heard about Halo Top from friends, and was itching to try it myself, so when the brand recently got in touch and offered me a sample I was so happy!  I chose plain old classic Vanilla Bean when I shopped, as it had the lowest carbohydrate count per serving available at my local  grocery store.

Nutrition information for 1/2 cup serving of Vanilla Bean: Calories, 60 (so yes… the entire pint is only 240 calories), Fat 1.5g, Carbohydrate 11g, Sugars 4g,  and Protein 6g!

Overall I thought: YUM YUM!  This product truly gives the satisfaction of a treat, without the depression of a sugar-binge!  The overall consistency of the product was a bit lighter than standard ice cream.  To me it was more like an ice milk dessert.  The vanilla flavor was amazing and it truly was delicious!

Other flavors offered include: Chocolate, Lemon Cake (I want to try this one next), Strawberry, Mint Chip, Chocolate Mocha Chip, Birthday Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cup, Cookies & Cream, Sea Salt Caramel, S’mores, Pistachio, Oatmeal Cookie, Chocolate Almond Crunch, Black Cherry, and Red Velvet!

Retail price varies, but at my local Fry’s the price was $5.50.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Review

I just spent a big chunk of my day playing with eye makeup. It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it! I was especially excited to get my hands on such a wide variety of Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil colors to share with you.  As you may guess, I am a very jaded beauty consumer.  I’ve tried so many different products, and I have very high standards.  To this day Make Up For Ever eye pencils rank very high on my “must have” makeup list.

Make Up For Ever Aqua XL Eye Pencil is amazingly creamy and malleable when you apply it.  A smudge brush will be your best friend, because when this pencil is smudged it makes even a shaky application look smooth and even.  Once the color sets, it stays in place.  When Make Up For Ever promises it is waterproof, they mean it.  If you have a tropical vacation coming up and don’t want to hit the beach without makeup, this eye pencil will be your best friend.

FOREO LUNA Go Review

FOREO LUNA Go Review

FOREO LUNA Go Review

The second I unboxed the FOREO LUNA Go and plugged it in to charge, it was a curiosity. My kids hovered near it, checking it out. My youngest couldn’t resist picking it up and running his fingers across the device’s bumpy surface.  Even I couldn’t take my eyes off this adorable little contraption!  I have been looking forward to giving the FOREO LUNA a test drive for quite some time, so when I was recently gifted the travel-sized “go” version of this cleansing tool I was beyond excited.  The FOREO LUNA Go is designed to accompany you on your travels, but even knowing this, I was still surprised at just how small this little device is.  It can easily fit into your makeup bag, so you have it on-hand all the time if you like to be prepared for spontaneous travel.  It also comes with a charging cord that uses your laptop as a charging station!

How To Use The FOREO LUNA Go

How To Use the FOREO LUNA Go, instructions for the FOREO LUNA go

FOREO LUNA Go Review

Straight out of the box, the first step is to charge your device.  When you are ready for cleansing, follow these simple instructions!

Cleansing with the FOREO LUNA Go:

To start the cleansing routine, apply cleanser to your skin.  The LUNA Go is waterproof, so run it under the faucet to get it wet before use.  Then press the indentation on the back side of the device to turn it on.

The bumpy texture of the FOREO LUNA Go is placed directly against your skin during the cleansing routine. Start the cleansing routine at the chin, and run the LUNA Go gently against the skin in small circular motions.  Don’t rub it against your skin too hard!  Work upward toward the ear, until the entire cheek has been cleansed.

Periodically the device will pause.  That’s a cue to let you know that you can move to a different section of your face.  The face is divided into four sections: each cheek, the forehead, and then the nose.  When the cleansing part of the routine is over, the device will pause rapidly three times.  At this point you should turn it off and rinse off your cleanser.

Anti-Aging with the FOREO LUNA Go:

Apply your anti aging product (or just use the anti-aging step stand-alone), and press the indentation again.  The device will now operate at a lower frequency for anti-aging treatment.  Similar to during the cleansing regimen, the LUNA Go will pause as you address five different areas that are commonly wrinkle-prone: each temple (crows feet), the area between the brows (worry lines), and the right and left nasolabial fold.  Naturally if you have other trouble spots, you can use this time to focus on those as well.

When the anti-aging routine is complete, the device will once again pause three times rapidly.  At this time you can turn it off, and rinse it off.  The device is made of silicon that is resistant to bacteria, and no replacement brush heads are ever needed!

Why do I love the FOREO LUNA Go?  This petite little product makes it easy to thoroughly cleanse every small crease on the face.  I’m also crazy about the anti-aging fuction, that makes me feel so relaxed!

The FOREO LUNA Go is available in textures for combination, normal, oily, and sensitive skin types!  Every LUNA cleansing tool comes with a 2-year limited warranty and 10-year quality guarantee.  Your skin will thank you!

Retail price is $99.

Shop FOREO.com for the LUNA go.
