Happy Friday!! Today’s Friday Favorite is YOUTH® skincare line by Shaklee. While, I had heard of Shaklee before, I will be honest in saying that I did not know that they provided skin care products as well. Because prevention is the best policy in skincare, I have been using the Youth Activating BB Cream, Youth Activating Serum and Radiance C + E capsules.
I am loving their products because they are formulated specifically to target and address aging at the cellular level of your skin. And all products are also 100% vegan and cruelty free, another reason to love them, am I right?
I have to admit that I didn’t have much of a skincare routine in place prior to trying out Saranghae. I supposed I had gotten used to trying a combination of products, as needed. But the fact that one line offers an entire system seemed appealing. Especially, since it is only a four step routine. The sheet mask is optional and not required every night – so I save it for nights when I need some pampering.
You’re curious now! And wonder what is Saranghae? It’s a Korean 5 Step Anti-Aging Routine comprised of
I have always loved tea tree oil products, there’s just something about it that makes my hair feel clean – from the scalp. I have had issues with flaking for long – I honestly can’t remember when it started. This is likely why I love all things tea tree oil for my hair, it tends to soothe.
So, when I got the chance to try Maple Holistics’ Tea Tree Shampoo, I was in! Not only does it have one of my favorite hair care ingredients, but it’s also free of parabens and GMOs; plus cruelty-free and gluten free. If you’re ready to try it, get your free sample.
Harry’s is a men’s razor company, yes! But hear me out. Aren’t you tired of being told what you can and cannot do as a woman? 😉 All kidding aside, who says that we have to use women’s razors only? I will admit, that I have been using them for years and never questioned it. When offered the opportunity to try a man’s razor, I became intrigued. And was pleasantly surprised by the results.
I was also left wondering why I had not used men’s razors before. The shave was so clean, effortless and my legs absolutely smooth. It was hands down, the best shave I had gotten… ever! And this was with only one shave – sure I had to go back over a few spots I had missed – even then the shave was much better than what I had experienced before.
If you have been to the blog before or are a friend on social media, you know that I am not big on makeup. However, when it comes to lippies and mascara, well that’s a different story. If there is one make up item that I must have, it is mascara. So when I got the opportunity to try Youniques’ Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+, I was excited. Having watched testimonials, video tutorial, and completed looks online, I was curious to see what the hype was about.
When I got my mascara from Julye, the first thing I noticed was the packaging, sleek and useful. The box had instructions on how to apply the gel and fibers, which came in handy the first few times that I used it. Though, my favorite feature was that the two-piece combo – transplanting gel + 3D fibers– came with a nice little pouch that makes keeping them together and traveling with them super easy.
I say traveling because I got it around the time I was on vacation in Georgia. This means I have been using it for about a month, which has giving me a lot of time to become a fan. While, I was a little skeptical at first, I have been proven wrong. First, unlike other mascaras that leave a black streak behind after I wash off my make up, this one comes right off.
The volume and length my lashes get from it are quite amazing. The fibers make my lashes seem much fuller than they really are. And a single application makes a big difference, but I use about three applications to get my desired results.
Now that you know how I feel about make up, you can guess that I also don’t spend a lot on make up. With that said, I feel that Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lashes+ is very affordable, especially because it gives you results. Even though it’s a two-step application, it’s worth it and it doesn’t make applying mascara any more difficult. See for yourself in Julye’s tutorial video below.
Happy Friday!! What do you have planned for the weekend? Hopefully it’s something fun. 😉 Before the week comes to an end, I wanted to share another Friday Favorite with you. This week, we’re talking nails.
I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m not like most women who get regular mani and pedis. One reason is that as a mom, my manicures hardly ever last. Another reason is that the girls and I truly enjoy painting our nails together at home.
This means that while I may not use color, I still use clear polish. I have been using several cheap brands which didn’t offer much than a clear coat. That was until I came across Perfect Formula’s Pink Gel Coat. I have been using it for about a month now and I have to say that I am very happy and it’s amazing on my nails.
