Product Review- “Whish” Body Butter

WhishSet

So I received this body butter in the mail and I gotta admit I was overjoyed. I absolutely LOVE body butter!! Unreasonably so actually. It’s called “Whish” and I absolutely love their shave cream so I couldn’t wait to use this little goodie. The name alone sounds like it’s fresh and light “whishhhh” like a warm summer breeze.

Whish

After using it for a few weeks I thought I’d let you all know what I think just in case you were in search of a good body butter or simple gift to give yourself or someone else.

Scented lightly with lavender (one of my fav’s) it doesn’t over power my perfume but definitely doesn’t go un-noticed and felt less like butter and more like a thicker lotion. NOT to be confused with a cream either however. It was kind of in between. It goes on smoothly and absorbs rather quickly without leaving a greasy trail once it’s soaked in. The softness last pretty much until your next hand washing and that’s saying a lot since I use hand sanitizer all day long.

I wouldn’t say that I was disappointed with this product just simply had a completely different idea of what it was going to be prior to using it. I’m used to thick shea butter like body butter or at the very least, the consistency of the body creams from bath and body works. Still, this hard working, sweet smelling gem is def one I want at my desk always. whishbodybuttersingle

Did you know??

 Concealer as a Primer.

bobbibrown

You can use concealer as an eyelid primer for your eye shadow! For those of you who don’t use primer before your shadow, you may have no idea what you’re depriving yourself of, I urge you to try it. I think this is a great little tip because of the fact that there are plenty of people out there who DON’T use a primer or even own one but those same people will most likely own concealer. I mean who doesn’t have a little something they want to cover up??

Anywhoodles, because there are SOOO many types of concealers out there I will tell you that the concealer that you choose to use as a primer should be either skin toned or white. This will ensure that you will get the truest color out of your shadow.

Here are some to consider that do the job, don’t break the bank, save money because they multitask, save space (again with the multitasking) and will last for EVER. A little goes a long way on these babies 🙂

Did You Know?

Did you know?
That some after makeup face sealer can also be used as a primer?! Welp, it’s true. One of my favorites to use for this is Ben Nye Final Seal. With its misty fragrance and light feel it’s an ideal choice for priming as well as sealing!!

It’s made for stage makeup so it’s heavy duty in its effort to keep you waterproof and sweat proof. This is awesome for every day but especially important for big events like weddings, gala’s, prom’s etc.

The frosting on this cake is that this products isn’t going to break the bank either. With sizes ranging from 2 fl oz to 16 fl oz and pricing ranging from $2- $25.50 it is definitely something worth packing in your makeup bag/kit.

Bye bye Yellow Nails!!

Breathable Nail Polish, the wave of the future!!

With everyone getting into what’s natural, organic and pure, it leaves me wondering what about nail polish? I mean we all like to have beautiful healthy nails, or at least have the illusion of them (which is why I think people still get acrylic, yikes). So if you think about it, when you paint your nails, you’re in essence covering the nail with a beautiful color that is also unfortunately suffocating it. Your nails are attached to you, hence being nourished by the air and the food you eat. So aside from eating right, taking your biotin, exercising etc., you want to make sure you’re also taking care of your nails.

Thank you Inglot for also thinking about our nails! With the wide array of colors, you’re bound to find one that works for you.

Not only is it breathable but it’s also water permeable. For those with religious restrictions on what they can wear when they perform these religious rituals this has GOT to be a relief. For the rest of us, it’s just really nice to know that when we change our nail color we won’t find yellow, thick, chipping, ridged , lined nails underneath.

I should also like to not that these do NOT contain toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP) or camphor.

Dr. Jart + Pore Minimalist Mask- Look airbrushed by taking care of your skin!

20140925_193406693_iOSSo recently I received in my Birchbox an interesting mask. It clearly stated on the front that it was a black charcoal sheet mask, so you would think I was prepared for what I was about to try out. Before opening I read the package and it proudly boasted that it was good for my type of skin. Pimples, check, Large Pores, Check, Excess Sebum, check. To be honest I don’t think I have excessive sebum but I’m willing to bet that I have it since I’m already 2 out of 3.

So I pull my hair back thinking this charcoal stuff will surely get all over the place, in my hair, probably on my clothes and I don’t know if oxyclean gets out charcoal stains so I’d better be careful on this one. I was home alone and decided it couldn’t be a more perfect time to sit on the couch with a treatment on my face to rejuvenate my skin and get it ready for my day.

20140925_194008878_iOS

I curiously ripped open the top of the package and peeked inside. What in the world?? As I reached in and pulled out the mask I see that they meant exactly what they said, it’s a sheet mask. I mean this thing was like a black slippery piece of smooth material that I can only compare to felt with holes cut into it. Ok, well, I guess this will be less messy than I thought. I unfolded the mask (so weird) and found the flap for the nose (it’s tricky cuz it blends right into the right into the rest of the mask. 20140925_200847154_iOS Ok now to position this thing on my face. Slippery sucker. Ok I’ve got it. There, that wasn’t so bad. Smoothing it down on my face was a small challenge as it seemed as though it was a little too big for my face and so it bubbled up around the edges but whatever, I’m not worried about my edges, I need my really oily zones tackled.

Aaaaaand now I wait. 20 minutes on the timer and I sit on my couch ready to let this magic mask minimize my pores, soak up some oil and make me look refreshed and airbrushed. Ok so honestly I KNOW that one use of any product isn’t going to change my skin so drastically but I’m visualizing my better skin, visualizing what COULD be, so just bare with me.

20140925_194629880_iOS

Tick tock and finally the timer goes off. As always I wonder if I should leave it on even longer to get an extra benefit but I decide to go ahead and follow the directions instead and peel it off.

20140925_194556404_iOS

There was a slippery substance on my skin but it mostly just felt wet. I rinsed my face and patted dry. I have to admit it did feel cleaner than before and a little more moisturized without feeling lotioned up or greasy. I will admit that my skin didn’t LOOK drastically different but I can see how using something like this often along with a really good skin cleansing routine would work wonders.

All in all I’m glad I tried it. It was way less messy than other masks I’ve used, it didn’t smell bad if at all, it was easy clean up and left my skin feeling alive. I almost prefer this kind of mask to other goopy kinds because it actually saves time.

Remember to always clean your skin with a cleanser appropriate for your skin type, use a toner (like witch hazel) right after and always always always moisturize your skin with a moisturizer appropriate for your skin type. These are minimum steps that you should be doing EVERY DAY. And I you’re like me, you will go that extra step and invest in a good eye cream and lip balm to protect that delicate skin around your eyes and on your pout.

Stop back soon for my “fav 5 for fall”!!
