I love a good beauty product and I'm excited to try the NEW Airbrush Legs by Sally Hansen this summer. The product comes in an entire range of shades to provide everyone a natural glow. It's shorts season and my legs are one of my better features so check back for a detailed review of this NEW Sally Hansen product soon!
Sometimes in life, one thing can roll into the next and occasionally result in a pretty cool domino effect. When I attended the Dior beauty event over the weekend, I spoke with my "fragrance godmother", who told me about an exclusive Thierry Mugler event featuring Angel and Alien perfumes she was hosting midweek. She told me it was a sit down event that would include food and shiny things in small boxes *gasp* the seating was limited but she had a chair for me and a guest if could make it.
Side note: When I use the term fragrance godmother I could truly remove the quotation marks. This angel has granted me access to unique scent events, given me posh gifts like Dolce and Gabbana beach towels, Tory Burch jewelry boxes and designer handbags that I use to this day. Plus I've walked out with bags filled with every luxury fragrance sample avaiable. She's truly a rock star!!!
Needless to say I agreed to attend with a guest!
I sent the invite via text to the only woman who loves a good fragrance event as much as I do, my mom! She agreed to attend and said she was just looking to restock her scent supply for spring.
We arrived at Nordstrom on time and were ushered into a private room. The theme was fun and playful: Carnival! There was popcorn, cotton candy, candy, chocolates and petit fours. There was music playing and a buzz in the air as the other invitees were mingling and enjoying the ambiance.
While attending the Thierry Mugler event we were introduced to the different notes of the Angel scent. Each one had playful names like Delicious and Luscious! We sampled body crèmes, body sprays, perfume hair sprays and more while attending the two hour event. The tables were filled with candy and loads of samples. There were several raffles and many ladies walked away with something from the brand.
After the main presentation was done, guests were able to take pictures, have their fortune told, get a tattoo and more while eating and drinking. There were great gift sets available in both the Angel and Alien line and the FREE gifts were sleek and chic.
I have been using my goodies from my Allure summer beauty box and have gained some new favorites!
I told you about my experience with the Jergens Self Tanning Mousse and a few more goodies below but I've been using the Colgate Whitening product and my smile is beaming! I also enjoy the Clear shampoo and conditioner as well. It doesn't weigh my hair down and leaves a fresh clean scent. The deodorants by Suave and Dove have been perfect for these hot summer days as well! I should be getting my next shipment soon. See everything I received in the images below!
I picked up my shipment last night and it was filled with everything I expected. My first Allure magazine beauty box was jam packed with items and more than half of them were NEW products to the market.
I used two products last night in my glee. The first was the NEW Jergens Self Tanning Mousse, it's the brown bottle picture below in the top row.. I did an exfoliation of my skin all over first so the distribution of color would be even and not streak. The product dries after 60 seconds so it worked really fast. The results were slightly visible then but I will reapply until I get an even look.
The next product I used was the Biore exfoliating charcoal face wash. It was really good at clearing my pores and minimizing the appearance of my pores. The lather was white, foamy and light. I saw the results the next day as my skins imperfections were bought to the surface for eradication.
There are so many more goodies to try! I'll give feedback on those items I find really effective or not as I use them.
Several times each year allure has offered a colossal beauty box filled with over $200 worth of beauty products for less that $50.
The first year is was offered I received box when I ordered online. The next year they were all sold out and the site crashed when it was opened for sales. The year after it was sold out when I ordered and this year they offered an option for die hard beauty junkies to get their fix.
So this year I pre-ordered all three boxes so I will receive my shipments until December 2015. My first box has shipped today and it filled with everything you see below! This is how I get my lower cost items for each season at the best price. 25 items for $50 plus shipping average out to be $2 per item!
I have always trusted the Head & Shoulders brand to take care of any scalp issues I have experienced and their NEW line of Moisture Care products are a great addition to the line up. I have used both the Co-Wash and 2 in 1 Moisture cleansers with great results. I prefer the Co-Wash over the 2 in 1 product because it seemed to leave my hair more hydrated.
The Scalp Soother left my hair flake and itch free and soothe any itching I may have experienced as well. There's no special scent with any item from the line that I tested and that left me using another shampoo and conditioner in addition to my FREE Head & Shoulders products.
Overall I would recommend this line of products for anyone experiencing scalp issues but if you want something that will make your hair smell good and provide other styling benefits you'll need back up.
I received an email earlier today inviting me to try the NEW Head and Shoulders Moisture Care line. My kit would include the products below for testing. I'm always open to try NEW hair care product so I agreed to give my feedback on them.
My kit has not shipped yet but when it does I will post images and a full review once I have tested it.
