Exfolimate Product Review

Press Sample

Here’s an interesting new exfoliation option that just crossed my path! The Exfolimate takes physical exfoliation to a new level. This tool almost acts as a razor, but rather than snip away unwanted hair, it removes dead skin cells!

Exfolimate is easy to use, and equally easy to store.  I keep mine hanging in the shower.  The larger of the two is for the body, and the smaller is for the face. Once your skin is wet, simply drag the tool over the skin’s surface. The blunt metal edge should be resting on the skin. Apply gentle pressure, and that’s it!  Exfolimate is very rewarding to use, as you’ll actually see the flaky, dry skin piling up on the metal.

I’ve been using this product often on my dry knees, and love the small face tool to help with my jawline.

Retail price is $29.99.

It’s been quite some time since I’ve switched up my hair tools, so I jumped on the chance to sample the Hana Air!  Referred to as the “Premiere Hair Dryer”, I was anxious to have a go at this professional quality styling tool designed in Italy. [Read more...]

Sirius Aurora At-Home LED Light Therapy Review

It’s been on my list for over a year now: “Dermatologist Visit”.

That nagging little “to-do” is being constantly de-prioritized, mainly because I already know that the laser treatments I desire to diminish the redness of my rosacea will likely cost over a thousand dollars, not to mention hours spent in the doctor’s office! When the kind team at Sirius offered me an Aurora to sample, I was all over it. This at-home LED Light Therapy device boasts results similar to anything you’d get from the dermatologist!

Do you really need to feel “super” today?  This Wonder Woman Utility belt from MAC’s Wonder Woman accessories collection will do the trick! 

While I love the entire Wonder Woman makeup collection, this particular item really brought a smile to my face.  Part practical, and part silly, I don’t really expect that you’ll stroll around town rockin’ your gleaming golden utility belt, but I’d be willing to bet that you’ll get good use of the makeup brushes inside!  The brushes included inside are: 129SE, 190SE and 194SE, three must-have face brushes, in a convenient mini travel-size!

I’ll confess:  I use 190SE daily, and have since receiving it from the holiday collection A Tartan Tale.  These mini brushes can easily compete against the big kids any day of the week (and cost a lot less)!

Retail price is $49.50.

Let’s face it, a fabulous accessory can make you feel like a star.  This metallic makeup bag is one of those items!  Generously-sized at 7.9″x1.6″x5/1″, this red metallic makeup bag can fite enough product for a vacation.  The interior lining feels somewhat leak resistent, and is a blue background studded with white stars.  A large rubber “Wonder Woman” disc adorns the zipper pull.  ]

Retail price is $30 per makeup bag.  Also available in blue.

MAC Wonder Woman: Invincible Mirror Review

MAC Wonder Woman Invincible Mirror Review

MAC’s Invincible Mirror, from the Wonder Woman Spring 2011 collection, is positively HUGE.  If you’re a collector, you’ll happily add this mirror to your shopping cart.  The extra large, almost 4″ diameter is one of the largest purse-sized mirrors I’ve ever seen. 

You’ll definitely need to tote this in the gold pouch that comes with it, though!  This is a mirror, not a compact, and if you carry it loose in your bag I guarantee it will scratch!

Retail price is $20.

Sweep Me Off My Feet, Mac A Tartan Tale, Holiday 2010

Sweep Me Off My Feet, Mac A Tartan Tale, Holiday 2010

The holiday season morphs me into an official MAC evangelist each year, doesn’t it?  I’ve posted praises for MAC’s travel-sized holiday brush bags in seasons past.  These portable makeup brushes are of the same high-quality as their full-sized counterparts, with handles only a wee-bit shorter.

Sweep Me Off My Feet contains “the five most wanted brushes for that perfect application of powder or blush: the 129SE, 190SE, 212SE, 227SE and 275SE.”  For those of you not familiar with MAC’s mysterious numbered brush names, I’ll boil it down for you!  Sweep Me Off My Feet contains: an extra-large blush/powder brush, a foundation brush, a super fluffy extra-wide eyeshadow brush, and an angled eyeshadow shading brush.  My personal favorite brushes from this collection are 190SE (the foundation brush) and 227SE (the large eyeshadow brush).  227SE is a Mom’s best friend!  When I’m in rush, I can swipe eyeshadow across the lid once with this extra-large shadow brush, and be done!  Even though I have yet to travel, I find myself using 190SE (the foundation brush) nearly every day.  I ordinarily use a Chanel foundation brush (Le Pinceau Teint Foundation Brush #16).  But, I’d pit this MAC mini against it any day… and for the $40 price tag on my Chanel, I could almost buy an entire brush set from the MAC A Tartan Tale collection!

Crafted in a patch-work style of super-chic tartan plaid, the Sweep Me Off My Feet set comes in a cross-body bag.  Dare I say, it’s actually wearable?

Retail price $49.50.
