I'm not talking to the youngins with beautiful, bushy brows. This one is for the mature women with unwanted, thin brows. Way back whenever, thin brows were in. Now we're stuck with over-plucked pencil brows AND thinning hairs that come with age. It's an impossible brow battle! There are many products that may induce thicker brows, but for some of us, the hairs are too long gone.
For a more youthful, full-brow look, eyebrow makeup is your hero! These three brow products will enhance your brows dramatically..
Benefit is one of my favorite brands. The Benefit brow enhancing product lineup is lengthy and impressive, but these three combined, will give you that Instagram worthy pic. I reference Instagram often when referring to an enhanced or fabricated look!
Benefit Gimme Brow + Volumizing Brow Gel is a must-have and the only product I absolutely need. Even on those no makeup days, I still apply Gimme Brow.
The tapered brush allows for precise application. The tinted gel has microfibers that adhere to the hairs and skin for a natural, full look. The formula is buildable (I recommend layering). Apply from the arch to the end first (these hairs should appear darker) and then use the leftover gel on the brush (before double-dipping) on the inner brow hairs. Always pull the arch to end hairs down and the entry hairs upwards.
Gimme Brow gel is water proof and lasts all day (unless you take a nap on your face). It is available in two sizes - the mini is perfect for on-the-go touchups and travel.
The Benefit Brow Contour Pro 4-in-one Defining and Highlighting Brow Pencil is all you need to create defined, fuller brows. The small pencils allow you to shape your brows with ease - Although, it may take little practice.
The multi-tasking pencil has four shades to define and highlight. This 4-in-1 pencil will eliminate a few products in your makeup bag and is perfect for on-the-go touchups and travel.
Click the intended tab and the non-sharpen pencil appears. Twist the end to push the pencil out of the slim plastic tube. Use the lighter shade to fill in your brows from start to end and then the darker shade for a more intense brow look. Apply the definer below the brow from start to end and the highlighter from arch to end. Perfectly contoured brows!
The Brow Contour Pro 4-in-one Defining and Highlighting Brow Pencil is available in five shades. VERY IMPORTANT - these shades are based on your skin tone AND your eyebrow hair color.
Benefit Browvo! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer nourishes and smooths your brows. Wear alone to condition or use as a primer to extend the wear of brow products. I apply Browvo! at night, so my eyebrows are super nourished in the AM.
You may have to continuously click the pen the first go, but only once thereafter for the perfect amount of conditioning primer. This double duty eyebrow primer is essential to healthy, fuller brows.
I'm not talking to the youngins with beautiful, bushy brows. This one is for the mature women with unwanted, thin brows. Way back whenever, thin brows were in. Now we're stuck with over-plucked...
This one goes out to all of you suffering from angry red face! Whatever the cause, Rosacea is hard to manage and flare-ups can be unpredictable. I use three topical medications and a variety of facial serums, but my irritable skin flares up on the daily.
Yeah, you're should avoid food, beverages, products snd environments that trigger a flushed face, BUT that would leave you miserable. Spicy food, cheese and wine are three of my favorite things to eat and drink AND I refuse to give them up in an effort to combat my flushed skin. Stress is also a huge factor, but that one's unavoidable.
I do however have a lineup of anti-redness products to mask the "I've had too much wine" look. These redness correctors will change your life..
Many dermatologist stock Colorescience products - that's sayin' something about this better skin brand. All of the products have SPF to combat skincare battles as a result of sun exposure, before they start. Colorescience All Calm provides SPF 50 sun protection. LOVE that!
Colorescience All Calm Clinical Redness Corrector is a new product in my skincare lineup. The primer-like product calms your skin while combatting redness. It has a similar texture to Colorescience Perfectors - a silky, thick facial product that glides on nicely and neutralizes your skin tone. It is however only available in one shade that may be light on tanned skin or darker skin tones.
I have been using Colorescience products since 2014 and while I've updated my go-to product list many times over the years, Colorescience Perfectors are still at the top.
These primers give you a natural, even tone, leaving no trace of caked on makeup (like foundation often appears). These perfectors blend perfectly (hence the name I suppose), minimize the look of your pores, blur wrinkles, and enhances your complexion. The natural result is far better than using foundation. People often compliment my skin and asked what foundation I wear - I don't!
The texture is soft and silky. It is a bit thick, but when applied over a nourished face, neck and décolletage, it absorbs quickly and enhances your skin dramatically.
I use the Calming Perfector during cold seasons and blend it with Bronzing Perfector during the summer for a sun kissed look. The Brightening Perfector is great for combatting redness and illuminating your skin. Don't be afraid of the pale yellow tone - it will transform your skin and brighten your complexion. I promise.
I have 'officially' (nothing I declare is really official) branded It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Color-Correcting cream the 'anti-redness warpaint'. If you have Rosacea or hyper pigmentation, you need this.
Bye Bye Redness is the ultimate anti-redness product. It's kinda like a foundation, primer and cream in one. It is thick, has a silky texture and gives you super full-coverage. This product is smooth, goes on like a primer (similar to Colorscience primers), has a green tint (to mask redness) and gives you a matte finish.
Apply to your cheeks, nose and forehead and blend outwards. A little goes a long way. Beware - this stuff will stain your clothes, so be careful when applying.
Bye Bye Redness Color-Correcting cream is available in three shades - Transforming Porcelain Beige, Transforming Neutral Beige and Transforming Light Beige. If you can't decide what shade to purchase, go with the neutral.
The mint green tint of Laura Mercier Shine Control Pressed Setting Powder tones down redness. The 'Shine Control Complex' gives you a shine-free, fresh, matte finish - a much-needed addition to my cosmetic bag for on-the-go touchups.
I wouldn't recommend this translucent powder for tanned or darker skin tones. Apply this powder to combat redness and reduce shine - it's not an all-over powder.
This one goes out to all of you suffering from angry red face! Whatever the cause, Rosacea is hard to manage and flare-ups can be unpredictable. I use three topical medications and a variety of...
Too Faced is one of my favorite cosmetic brands. The vast lineup includes skin prep and setting products, along with high-quality and innovative makeup. Oh and the scents are amazing!
Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme (not pictured here), is the ultimate lip plumper and probably my most-valued makeup product. Your lips become significantly fuller and flushed with color in minutes. Since purchasing my first Too Faced lip balm in 2014, this brand has taken over my CosmoCube.
The new Too Faced Dew You lineup is part of the Tutti Fruity Collection and is comprised of four products - Dew You primer, foundation, setting powder and setting spray.
The watermelon and cumber scent of Dew You products is delicious. I'm not a big fan of scented facial products (especially floral scents), but LOVE this one. It's sweet and refreshing.
Dew You Fresh Glow Luminous Face Primer can be worn alone for a dewy look, under makeup for a boost in luminosity and over makeup for a highlighted look. I prefer the strobing effect over the full-face dewy look. The all-over glow is a bit too shinny for me.
The gel-cream texture is non-sticky, applies nicely and soaks into your skin seamlessly. This face primer creates the perfect canvas for soft-focus luminosity. It is high-shine, so apply sparingly. I purchased the Radiant Pearl. The micro sparkles have a pink-tone and transfer easily (be careful putting on white tops).
The Too Faced Dew You Fresh Glow Translucent Setting Powder is a brightening setting powder. Apply to areas you want a little extra glow - I like to sweep the powder over my under eye concealer and across my nose and cheeks. The micro illuminating pearls reflect the light and blur imperfections.
Dew You Fresh Glow Translucent Setting Powder is available in three versatile shades - Radiant Pearl (pale skin), Radiant Nude (sun-kissed skin) and Radiant Caramel (darker skin tones). I purchased the Radiant Pearl and Radiant Nude. The Radiant Pearl is transparent, while the Radiant Nude has a slight bronzing quality.
The packaging is brilliant. Under the pink and gold, watermelon printed twist cover is a flip-top with a mesh layer to control the amount of powder you shake through. This mesh also allows you to rub your brush along it and remove access powder. This innovative design ensures you won't waste powder.
This setting powder is light-weight, brightens your complexion and smells amazing! It is is infused with soothing cucumber extract and has the Dew You signature watermelon and cucumber scent. Delicious!
Another deliciously scented Too Faced product - It's Bananas Setting Powder from the Tutti Fruity Collection. This matte yellow powder blurs imperfection and brightens your complexion.
The yellow-tone neutralizes redness and combats under eye circles. The light-weight powder is perfect for setting concealer. This pressed, setting powder can also be applied to high points on the face for a matte highlighter. The It's Bananas Setting Powder is cute and smells yummy.
The Too Faced Peaches and Cream Collection is one of my favorites. I purchased the Peach Mega Moisture Lip Balm and then had to have the Peach Lip Scrub. This exfoliating lip scrub is gentle and effective. Your lips will feel soft and rejuvenated. The peaches and cream scent is sweet and yummy!
If you want a pouty look, buff your lips first, get the circulation flowing, apply a lip balm and then color. If you want super-plumped lips, purchase the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This stuff reigns supreme!
Too Faced has a Hangover Collection - LOVE that! The collection consisted of a primer and setting spray, but is expanding and will include an AM and PM facial moisturizer - Can't wait.
Too Faced Hangover 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray hydrates and brightens. The weightless formula is coconut water-infused and has a subtle coconut scent. You can apply this spray as a primer, setting spray and a mid-day refresher. It soaks into the skin nicely and give you a smooth canvas. LOVE!
The Too Faced Dew You lineup and Hangover Collection are a must-have this summer. All of these Too Faced products combined will leave your skin feeling hydrated, boost luminosity, prime and set your makeup and treat your lips for the perfect pouty look.

I've been super stressed lately and scratching my head. It's a terrible, unruly habit - A scalp scrub and detox is necessary. I usually do a scrub on my scalp once a month, but as of late, have been using a scalp scrub once a week.
The Sephora Collection Peppermint Hair Cleansing Salt Scrub is my new favorite scalp treatment. The peppermint scent is refreshing and the deep cleanse restores your hair and scalp balance.
This inexpensive, detoxifying shampoo gets to the root of damaged hair and restores your scalp. The peppermint scent is natural and subtle. Natural peppermint is known for it's purifying properties and refreshing qualities.
This is a scalp scrub and has a salty texture, but lathers and replaces your regular shampoo. First apply to your scalp and work your way through your hair to eliminate product build-up and environmental aggressors.
When paired with water, this scrub does feel a little oily. I know - why use oil to combat an oily issue. It works! Oil-pulling is commonly used to combat oily skin and even whiten your teeth.
After using this product, my itching subsides for a few days. Albeit, it's a stress-related habit, so no haircare product is going to completely solve my issue. This Sephora Collection Peppermint Hair Cleansing Salt Scrub has landed a permanent spot in my haircare routine.
I've been super stressed lately and scratching my head. It's a terrible, unruly habit - A scalp scrub and detox is necessary. I usually do a scrub on my scalp once a month, but as of late, have...
I'm addicted to lip products. I have more than one girl can possibly use before the best before date, but I can't kick the habit! My latest lip loves smell amazing and are perfect for summer. The unique tube designs are just as fabulous as the innovative products.
I'm a HUGE fan of Dior Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm. I have been using this balm for years. The original 001-Pink Glow is a pale pink balm that enhances your natural lip color. When Dior launched this product, it was impossible to get them, so I purchased five Lip Glow balms at time. I gave them to everyone I knew!
The Lip Glow lineup has expanded and I'm obsessed with the new Lip Glow To The Max balm. It is the first balm from Dior's Backstage Collection to feature the original glow and color. The color reviver enhances your natural lips and the pearlescent pigments bring your glow to a new level.
I'm a fan of coral shades - it goes best with my sun-kissed skin and black hair. I purchased the Dior Lip Glow To The Max in 204-Coral. I love everything about this balm. The scent is delicious, like a sweet candy cane. The two-color swirl is brilliant and the color is vibrant. This shade is a light coral/pink and has a slight shimmer. Perfect for no-makeup (but I'm wearing makeup) days.
This balm smells great, looks good and nourishes your lips. Lip Glow To The Max is the perfect summer lip balm and enhancer in one.
Another cute lip product is Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Plump-in-Color Plumping Lip Balm. I've been a fan of Yves Saint Laurent's Volupté collection for a while and love the new heart embellished lip plumper. I'm a self-proclaimed lip pluming addict! The only thing I won't do for a full-pout look is use one those strange suction lip plumping contraptions - looks dangerous! Back to plumping balms..
Yves Saint Laurent Volupté Plump-in-Color Plumping Lip Balm nourishes your lips - the silky texture glides on like oil, giving you high-shine look. I purchased 4-Exposing Coral. It's the perfect subtle (high-shine) shade of coral.
This balm contains peppermint oil and tingles a little when you apply it. As far as plumbers go, it's on the subtle side, but the pretty shade and shine make your lips appear hydrated and fuller.
The scent is amazing - like minty watermelon. This balm has landed a permanent spot in my handbag.
Another must-have Yves Saint Laurent Volupté lip product is the Heart & Arrow Collector Rouge Volupté Shine Lipstick. This gorgeous bright cajun coral lipstick is limited edition. It has the same silky (oily) texture as the other Volupté lip products - High-shine with more color.
I love the packaging. YSL Volupté lip products all don the same decorative lipstick tube, but this one has a heart & arrow print. YSL Volupté lip products are super nourishing, leave your lips feeling soft and give you the perfect high-shine pout.
Another one of my favorite brands is Too Faced. This cosmetic brand is fun, high-quality and always launching innovative products. The Peaches and Cream Collection is delicious! I purchased the Peach Mega Moisture Lip Balm and then had to have the Peach Lip Scrub. This exfoliating lip scrub is gentle and effective. Your lips will feel soft and rejuvenated. The peaches and cream scent is sweet and yummy!
If you want a pouty look, buff your lips first, get the circulation flowing, apply a lip balm and then color. If you want super-plumped lips, purchase the Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme. This stuff reigns supreme!
These four products are at the top of my summer 2019 lip products must-have list. Coral is always going to be the perfect shade for summer lips and this season is more natural and light than the others, so opt for light lip products that enhance your natural lips. Buff, hydrate and add a little color..

Sol De Janeiro is one of my favorite beauty brands. The pistachio-caramel scent of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (not pictured here) is AMAZING! This deliciously scented product line is addictive. You're gonna want to surround yourself with these scents.
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Kiss Cupuacu Lip Butter is one of my favorite lip balms. The light, creamy texture is nourishing and the tube is BIG, so it will last a long time. This lip balm is infused with super nourishing ingredients Cupaçu butter, Açai and coconut oil. A MUST-HAVE!
Of course I purchased the new Sol De Janeiro sunscreen products the second they hit the shelf! The Sol De Janeiro My Sol Stick is an 80 min water resistant moisturizing protection balm. This on-the-go balm stick is great for extra protection in sensitive ares - Apply to your face, lips, bikini line and tattoos.
My Sol Stick has a wax-like texture and you can feel there is a layer of protection on your skin. The balm is SPF 50 and has a delightful, sweet, nutty scent. I hope Sol De Janeiro launches a new body mist in this scent. AND, it's slightly larger than the lip balm, so it fits in your handbag for touch-and-go application.
The Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil has the same addictive pistachio-caramel scent of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. Everyone who comes close to me asks what perfume I'm wearing and it's Sol De Janeiro body products.
The Bum Bum Sol Oil is a sun protection oil infused with skin smoothers an luminizers. The oil is SPF 30, non-greasy and gives your skin a subtle glow. The product goes on nicely and has a slight oily texture that dissipates quickly. It's a two-in-one perfume and sunscreen.
You can see the micro sparkles in the oil and there is a little leaf floating in there - I think it's a faux-leaf for appeal. The bottle is small and great for on-the-go spritzes and travel.
The luscious scent of Sol De Janeiro Bum Bum cream and Sol Oil is referred to as Cheirosa '62 Brazilian Bum Bum Scent. It is comprised of pistachio, almond, heliotrope, jasmine petals, vanilla, salted caramel and sandalwood. It's sweet, delicious and intriguing. This combination is brilliant!
The scent of Sol De Janeiro Coco Cabana Cream is delicious and enticing, with notes of toasted coconut, creamy caramel and buttery praline. This Cheirosa '39 fragrance pairs nicely with the original Cheirosa '62 Brazilian Bum Bum Scent. I like this new scent more than the Bum Bum cream, but the texture is strange. It's light and feels more like liquid soap than a body cream. It's also very sticky. I love the scent, but the cream doesn't feel nice on the skin. This new addition to the Sol De Janeiro lineup needs some modifications..
Sol De Janeiro is one of my favorite beauty brands. The pistachio-caramel scent of Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream (not pictured here) is AMAZING! This deliciously scented...
I LOVE PINK - AND, have been coveting the T3 rose collection for months. I'm a lucky girl! I received three T3 styling tools for Mother's Day. Thanks family! I LOVE my new hair styling tools and this shade of pink is perfect!
I've been a fan of T3 for, well, longer than I can remember. I've tried other styling tools, but always go back to this brand. I already have the T3 Featherweight Compact hair dryer and SinglePass Compact straightener in white, BUT had to have the limited edition pink version.
The Singlepass Compact straightening and styling iron is small, but with no less power. There is an internal microchip that maintains an even temperature in the plates. The ceramic plates exude potent heat for quick on-the-go or on-vacation styling.
I love this styling tool. It's small and easy to handle. You can straighten your hair or create loose waves AND your hair will never get caught in the iron. I have no idea how to create a soft curl/wave with a straightener, so I stick to my straight, sleek bob. My hair is really soft to begin with, but this straightener takes it to a new level of silkiness.
If you have a short hair style, I highly suggest you opt for a compact straightener to avoid mishaps! I've burnt my face, neck and ears too many times with full-sized hair tools - not anymore!
I use to curl my hair everyday (many years ago), but have no idea how to create the trendy, wavy hairstyle EVERYONE is donning these days. SO, I'm experimenting with the T3 Singlepass Curl 1 1/4" curling iron.
The iron is HUGE! It's al little scary attempting to curl my short hair, but thankfully the tip remains cool, so you can control the styler with ease. There are five heat settings. I like the smart dial - just twist the end to adjust the heat according to your needs. I use heat setting four and am getting a little smoke, so I suggest you move fast - that's why it's called Singlepass!
I'm still struggling to get a nice wave, but I'm sure it's my method and not the styling tool. I need practice! This T3 curling iron is high-quality and your hair doesn't get tangled in the iron. The barrel is large and I assume suitable for big curls and a "natural" wavy look.
The T3 Singlepass Curl 1 1/4" iron has a swivel cord and auto world voltage, so you can take this styling tool anywhere - just pack the appropriate plug extension.
I have purchased the full-size T3 hair dryer in the past, but prefer the travel size - it's lighter, easier to handle and fits in my travel cosmetic bag nicely. The T3 Featherweight Compact hair dryer has two speeds/heat settings, is dual voltage and has a folding handle for easy storage. The T3 Tourmaline SoftAire technology promotes high-speed drying AND reduces frizz. I've done the research - this hairdryer reigns supreme.
T3 claims the body is scratch resistant - I will say that after years of using my white Featherweight Compact hair dryer, the surface on the diffuser was peeling off - hence my desire to get a new one. You can however purchase a replacement T3 diffuser online for $3.
This T3 Featherweight Compact design has been on the top of my go-to hair care list for years, but just got a pink upgrade.
I LOVE PINK - AND, have been coveting the T3 rose collection for months. I'm a lucky girl! I received three T3 styling tools for Mother's Day. Thanks family! I LOVE my new hair styling tools and...
I'm a detox anything and everything fan - Detox tea, juicing, herbal supplements and more recently, my scalp and hair. Admittedly, I've been lazy in the self-care department, but as of late have been implementing changes to better myself inside and out.
I finally mustered up the strength and dedicated myself to a daily exercise routine. I HATE IT! People who say exercising feels good confuse me. Albeit, I'm loosing weight and I love that my clothes are ill-fitting. Other than the intense workout at 8:00 am (I feel like I'm being punished), my hair routine is also suffering. I used to scrub my scalp and strands every third day, but I'm sweating and my hair requires a wash every other day - dry shampoo and a sweaty scalp is a cocktail for gross!
My hair is supper oily to begin with, but after 10 minutes on the squat machine and 3 rounds of "9 Exercises to get a flatter stomach", all I wanna do is shower and wash my hair. BUT, I'm lazy! Every other day, I give my head a intense scrub and once a week, I detox my scalp - It's the best feeling. I've tried scalp exfoliators and oils, but they often smell strong, like Tea Tree Oil (eew). In fact, most detox haircare products have an overpowering scent.
If I walk my Toy Poodle before I shower day two, I'll sprite a little product on the back of my scalp to give my limp pony tail and loose strands a little texture. Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Texture Spray is not a detox product, but rather a dry texturizing spray. The scent is fresh and the light product leaves your hair feeling a little aired-out. This stuff is great for volumizing clean hair too. LOVE!
For dry shampoo, my go-to brand is IGK. First Class, Direct Flight, Jet Lag and Fresh AF reign supreme in the kingdom of dry shampoo.
IGK First Class Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo is my favorite on the IGK shelf. The scent is strong, but nice and I like that it contains charcoal. Activated Charcoal absorbs - you can drink it, brush your teeth with it and apply to your hair and scalp to absorb the excess oil.
IGK First Class Dry Shampoo cleanses your hair, absorbs oil and eliminates odor. Spray the product on to your roots (oily areas) and leave for 10 min (to get the cooling, cleansing affect). THEN, turn your head upside down, massage and shake to distribute and remove access product.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Triple Detox Shampoo has a super-strong scent, but it dissipates throughout the day. The Activated Charcoal infused shampoo smells like lemons and leaves your hair feeling fresh. This shampoo also has a patented healthy hair molecule (OFPMA) that fights off dirt and and oil, leaving your hair cleaner for a longer period of time.
This shampoo stinks, but it works and has landed a permanent spot in my weekly haircare routine. Triple Detox Shampoo is available in 160 ml and a travel-size 60 ml (love that). I suggest you purchase the smaller tube and give it a try..
I'm a HUGE fan of Bumble and Bumble hair products. I've tried almost everything on the roster. This one however fell short of my expectations and gave me a headache! The potent scent of Bb. Scalp Detox is unbearable! You could use this stuff in warfare! And of course, I got the product all over my hands and clothes while trying to capture a pic of the foam. I had to take a shower and quarantine my photo studio until the smell dissipated.
Whether or not it works - I can't say from experience. BUT, Bb. Scalp Detox is a 2018 Best of Beauty Allure Award winner. AND, I gave this fizzing, detoxifying foam to my girlfriend and she loved it!? If you can handle the scent or maybe even like it, this may be the perfect scalp detox solution for you.
Bumble and Bumble is a premiere haircare brand and I'm confident that everything in the lineup is amazing. Fingers crossed Bumble and Bumble will launch scent-free haircare..
I LOVE this Invisibobble Sprunchie. I have very fine, short hair and I prefer to wear my hair off my face, but my pony tail is pathetic! This black, velvet- like sprunchie (love the name) stays put and makes my up-do appear fuller. I wrap it once and then tuck my hair in and wrap again to create a messy, mini-bun. My hair is black, so the sprunchie blends well.
I can't believe this innovative Invisibobble has been sitting in my studio for months (unused). I need to work faster on these reviews. This sprunchie is a must-have!
I'm a detox anything and everything fan - Detox tea, juicing, herbal supplements and more recently, my scalp and hair. Admittedly, I've been lazy in the self-care department, but as of late have...
Another Instagram sensation - Sugarbear SLEEP Vitamins. These little bear-shaped vegan gummies are formulated to help you sleep. The little purple bears smell delicious, taste like berries and are SUPER-SWEET! I'm not a sweets person, but I prefer a flavorful gummy over giant capsules - there's nothing relaxing about swallowing huge pills and vitamins.
Comprised of Melatonin, Magnesium, Theanine and Vitamin B6 - These ingredients tell your body when to go to sleep, enhance natural Melatonin and promote relaxation. This list is typical for natural sleep aids.
These gummies also contain the Sugarbear proprietary Rest Well Blend - botanicals that promote relaxation and optimize sleep. Lemon Balm Leaf, Passion Flower, Valerian Root and 5-HTP promote a calm, positive mood.
Seems like these gummies are packed with everything you need to improve your mood, promote relaxation and get a good night sleep. Albeit, most of us require something a little stronger! I suffer from insomnia and have tried too many homeopathic remedies. Yes, they "help", but if I'm stressed it will take a horse tranquilizer to keep me under for the suggested eight hours.
I do find Sugarbear SLEEP gummies beneficial for relaxation. Rather than chewing two at bedtime, I opt for two with my evening tea (a blend of chill-the-f**k-out herbs and detox tea). I find slipping in to the sheets, feeling relaxed and stress-free is most beneficial to a good night sleep. Reducing stress in your life (or coping with it better) also plays a huge role in a positive, calm mind and solid eight hours rest.
Sugarbear vitamins are fun, delicious and gorgeous shades of blue, pink and purple. Color is super important on Social Media and if a product photographs well, it will swiftly gain fans (whether or not the product is worthy).
So many people claim that Sugarbear HAIR Vitamins have changed their life. Claims that these little blue bears miraculously transformed your straw hat to a gorgeous mane are ridiculous. Gummies that contain Biotin, Folic Acid and Vitamin D will promote healthy hair, but proper haircare is necessary in the recovery process.
While perusing the Sugarbear site for sleep vitamins, I noticed there is also a women's multi-vitamin. The bears are the perfect shade of pink - Of course, I'm going to buy them.. Sugarbear vitamins are cute, contain all the right stuff and aside from being 15 calories each, will only benefit you.
Oh and my Sugarbear SLEEP vitamins order included a mini bottle of gummies (perfect for travel) and a cute keychain. I love promo products!

I'm addicted to cosmetics! Even though my Cosmocube is overflowing and my beauty studio stash (products awaiting photos and reviews) is abundant, I can't control the need to peruse the online Sephora store OFTEN. The Just Arrived section is the latest and greatest lineup at the cosmetic Mecca of the world.
With transparent bags trending this Spring/Summer, attractive products and accessories are a must. Here's a few fun items that will brighten up your summer.. Of course, everything is pink - I'm obsessed!
I'm a HUGE fan of the Sephora Collection. The cosmetics typically cost less then most brands, but maintain a high-quality standard. There's always new products in the just arrived section online and currently 500+ items to peruse.
This Sephora Collection Love You Beary Much Retractable Brush is super cute. It's the perfect gift for a budding amateur and their little girl makeup kit AND for an expert with a free-spirited, cute sense of style.
This charming bear has a a retractable swivel brush that allows you to control the amount of bristles used and thus create a number of brush styles. The rounded bristles are dense and super soft.
Just remove the bears head, push down on the plastic column and apply blush, bronzer and powder foundation. I suppose you could use this brush to apply liquid foundation, but it's gonna leave a mess inside the bears head.
This delightful design also includes two tiny brushes in the bears stomach - so cute! The small angled brush and spoolie are great for shaping and enhancing your eyebrows. This plastic bear case isn't gonna fit in my everyday cosmetic bag, but the two little brushes are the perfect mini-size.
The Love You Beary Much retractable brush is made from plastic and is lightweight. It's a little challenging to get the white door open the first few times, but the cute bear head removes easily and pops back on nicely. LOVE!
YES! This ionic technology blowdryer has a vanilla-scented infuser that exudes a sweet scent while you blow-dry your hair. It's BRILLIANT! The Sephora Collection Sweet Scents Perfume Infusing Blowdryer contains a removable "Sweet Bunny" infuser that looks like a cartoon bunny and smells delicious. LOVE!
The vanilla scent reminds me of Strawberry Shortcake (the doll). It's pleasant, BUT super-strong. I'm popping Advils while I type this review! If you are sensitive, you can remove the vanilla scent "Sweet Bunny", but that would kinda defeat the purpose?!
I hope this innovative tool is a success and Sephora Collection releases new "Sweet Bunny" scents. Coconut and chocolate are at the top of my list - HINT HINT..
The lightweight dryer is foldable and has an ultra-quiet 110V DC motor. The handle is ergonomically correct and comfortable to hold. AND, there is a multi-step switch for drying options. This gentle ionic dryer comes with a pouch and is great for travel.
The plastic design feels a little cheap, but what it lacks in quality, it makes up for cute, innovative design. This pink and white, vanilla infused hairdryer is PERFECT for a little girl or an immature big girl! Ladies and gents obsessed with pink and child-like products - don't be offended, keep doing you and enjoy your vanilla scented hair..
In addition to the velvet-like travel bag, there is also a cute scrunchie in the box. The black hair tie has pink polka dots and two structured bunny ears. Super cute! My Toy Poodle, Teddy, loves hair ties - this one will keep him busy for hours!
I was shopping for facial rollers (rose quartz, jade..) and came across this Kaja Roller Glow Roll-on Highlighting Balm. The fun, unique design includes a rectangular pot of pearlescent pink highlighter and two mini, hygienic paint rollers. It's super cute and an effective way to apply highlighter to your body.
The case is plastic and a pretty magenta shade. Enclosed is a mirror and and one roller applicator that snaps on to a plastic door that separates the sponge from the highlighting balm. There is also an extra mini paint roller in the box.
The kit is little pricy, but there is a lot going on inside the box and the design is super-fun! This product is the perfect gift for a little girl experimenting with makeup - Or anyone addicted to cosmetics, pink and has a light sense of humor.
The cream-to-powder highlighter consists of ultra-reflective pigments of pearlescent pink with a golden undertone. The roll-on result is subtle and perfect against pale or slightly sun-kissed skin. This little paint roller is great for applying an even layer of highlighter to your arms and décolletage.
The sample photo on sephora.com are misleading - the product is super-subtle and you'd have to apply a ridiculous amount to get the result in the photo.
