I know you all want the secret to getting gorgeous voluminous lashes like I have in these pics. It’s actually quite simple…it’s all in the unique mini-oval shape brush, that allows you to reach every single lash on your eyes. Amazing, right?!

The Revlon Power Mini Brush might be small to the eye, but the hollow core helps you hold more mascara to maximize the amount of formula on your lashes, which means less dunking and more applying to create a fuller look.

Fast tips and tricks

  • To achieve an extra “pop” to your gorgeous eyes, use the tiny oval shape brush on the bottom and corner lashes. Bam! Now your eyes are popping more than ever!

I was born with very fair skin, but I tan easily. However, the suns UV rays isn’t so safe so I pile on the SPF and miss out on getting a natural tan.  It’s not worth the risk of getting skin cancer or blotches all over my skin, so when I was given the opportunity to test out Jergens Natural Glow, I was excited.

After my first application I started noticing a natural glow, but very subtle. By the third application, it starting looking more like a natural tan.

The Jergens Natural Glow has made be more confident in my photos. Every winter, I feel like I’m whiter than Snow White, so it helps to have a natural looking glow without looking like Oompa Loompa. With that said, I would totally recommend Jergens Natural Glow.

FASH TIPS:

  • Before applying your first application, make sure you exfoliate
  • apply lotion on the rougher/drier areas i.e. knees, elbows and feet
  • wash hands with soap after you are done applying (below the wrist). Then apply a small dab on top part of hands and rub both top parts of the hands together so the washed area has some application on it.

Redken Colour Ultra Rich

Deanne 076

Although I have very dark hair naturally, I’ve been colouring it for a while to keep a richer, dark tone, and now, cover a few greys – ugh! Since I started colouring my hair I found it would always fade quickly and my red tones would start to show through after just a few washes, which can be very frustrating. So when I was asked to test out Redken’s Chromatics Ultra Rich, I immediately said yes. I mean who wouldn’t want to have rich and healthy looking hair, right?! I’ve been a long-time fan of Redken’s products thus far, so I was eager to see what they had to offer for this dull looking hair of mine.

I recently met with Redken artist, Marie-Eve Faucher, from Salon Tocci that used Redken’s latest product called: Chromatics Ultra Rich, which launched this month. I haven’t changed my hair colouring product in years and I was a bit worried at first. After consulting with Marie-Eve, I felt more comfortable and was excited to go through with it, because of her longevity with colouring hair and knowledge of Redken. The great thing about this product is that it has zero ammonia, which means there’s no unpleasant odour or an itchy irritation like I normally get using my regular hair colour. Once my hair was coloured, washed and styled, my first thought was how dark and rich it looked.  I’m so glad I took the risk to try a new hair colour, because I am extremely satisfied with it. Even after 3 washes, it kept its shine and felt soft. I strongly recommend you test this hair colour product out for yourself!

I was gifted with Redken’s “Colour extend magnetics” shampoo and conditioner to help extend the colour of my hair. Not only do they smell good, but they work wonders, keeping my hair colour dark, which is said to last for a long period of time with the “colour locking system” and the shampoo is sulfate-free!

For someone with a very busy lifestyle such as myself, time is precious and having thick, heavy hair doesn’t help. So, my Redken artist, Marie-Eve Faucher advised that Redken’s “Pillow Proof” express primer works wonders for my hair type. Although I was sceptical at first, I had to test it out for myself because you will never know unless you try. After my first time using it, I was blown away *pun intended*! It literally cut my blow dry time in half. Let’s just say I’ll be using this primer on the regular.

Tip: Make sure you shake well before spraying onto hair.

Refresh your routine for the new year + a giveaway!

New Year’s resolutions are fun to make but can be difficult to keep at the same time. This is why we must set our goals with a routine, so we can keep it up for the whole year or more! This year, one of my goals is to refresh my routine with Refresh Botanicals. This New Year, I have started to religiously use the Refresh Botanicals line which, already after week one, I’ve seen a difference.

s a Blogger, I get introduced to many types of beauty products, especially skincare lines. As of today, Refresh Botanicals’ Fresh Products are my go-to! I fell in love with this natural line because it is not only natural and almost 100% organic, but it also helped transition my skin to looking healthy again. It’s nice to know that there aren’t any harmful chemicals such as artificial fragrances, parabens, dyes, or by-products derived from petroleum products – It’s scary to know how many harsh chemicals can actually be absorbed by your skin!

The foaming cleanser works like a charm. It helps take away residue and impurities on my face and neck. After cleansing my face, I use the Facial Toner. Their toner leaves my face looking bright, and feeling fresh without any tightness or drying. The Daily Facial Moisturizer provides immediate hydration while providing antioxidant protection to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – Who doesn’t want younger looking skin, right?! The Night Restore Complex helps lighten up dark spots, which is very useful for someone such as myself. It goes on my skin without feeling thick or cakey, which is great for night time application! The BB Cream not only evens skin tone, it hydrates, protects is and blurs out any imperfections.  The Eye + Face Makeup Remover helps remove both, eye and face makeup in one simple step without rinsing. Pretty convenient, right?!

Refresh Botanicals stands by their product offering healthy skin that protects with the botanical life force of plants.
