Julep Nail Polish in Oscar

 
I have a confession to make, I am absolutely in love with Julep's Nail Polish in Oscar. I am not sure if it is because it is a gorgeous gold color (as you can see from my swatch) or the fact that the nail polish itself is long-lasting and truly lives up to it's marketed promise. It is fast drying and the color pay-off is one of the best I have discovered in a nail polish product which is a great thing as you don't need to reapply relentlessly. It is also easy to remove.
 
Either way, if you are looking for a vibrant yet intense gold glitter, the Julep Nail Polish in Oscar "It Girl" is one you will not only love, but appreciate. Julep does not test on animals (confirmed several years ago) as it is cruelty-free and possesses vegan-friendly ingredients.
 
Would I recommend this nail polish? Absolutely. Oscar "It Girl" is available right now at Julep for $14. My search for a vibrant glitter glam yellow gold nail polish has officially ended.

Nails Inc. London in Mayfair Lane

 
As part of the 2013 Christmas Cracker Collection, Mayfair Lane is a stunning new addition to Nails Inc. This is a full-coverage, red glitter polish. Although the red is intense, it isn't bright and quite cool in comparison to most red shades.
 
As this is considered to be a nail topper used to accessorize your nails and bling up your polish, it's quite pigmented when worn alone. As you can see from the swatch, it looks like a full-coverage, red glitter polish. And when I originally swatched the above photo, I wore Mayfair Lane by itself.
 
Would I use this product again? As this product is great, it is not for me to wear on a daily basis. Would I recommend this nail product? Yes. As popular as this polish was in 2013, I haven't been able to find it online at all as it is sold out virtually everywhere. I'll update this review with a link when I discover one.

Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Reshaping Divine Serum

Darphin is an internationally known skin brand located in the heart of France. Established in 1958, this line of skin care was created by Pierre Darphin who has created some of the best skin care, body care, oral care, and spa related products in the world today. As one of the Estee Lauder companies, this skin care brand proves why they are one of the greatest lines in the world today. Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Reshaping Divine Serum. So, what did I think?

PROS

What I find intriguing about this serum was the idea that it was designed to copy Pierre Darphin's deep massage, as it was designed to inflate the hallow zones of your face. And as a result, it is suppose to lift and tighten. I actually noticed results immediately after one use. Then, after a week, I noticed dramatic results. 

Some serums promise to stimulate the skin's cells and promote healthy skin renewal. I can honestly say that this amazing Darphin addition delivers real benefits which I discovered after just a week of using it daily everyday. If you think your skin looks tired today, this serum will wake it up tomorrow (or technically in a few days).

The texture of this serum is amazing. In fact, it has one of the best textures I have ever used. It isn't too thick nor is it too thin. Most serums that have amazing textures are either too greasy or tend to dry out, whereas; this texture does neither and sinks into your skin like a second skin. 

This serum works not only great for the face, but the neck and decollete too. 

Darphin does NOT test on animals. In fact, they are committed to the elimination of animal testing.

CONS

This serum uses Sea Emerald with Commipheroline. If you feel that your skin reacts to either of these ingredients, you may not be interested in this product. 

If you are into organic products, you may not find this product appealing.

If you are not willing to spend $300, let alone $310 on a serum, you are not going to be interested in this product. 

You can purchase Darphin's STIMULSKIN PLUS Reshaping Divine Serum at Darphin or your nearest Darphin retailer for $310. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. In fact, I just used some now. Would I recommend this product to a friend or family member? Yes, but only if they are willing to spend over $300 for a serum. For more information about this product, please visit Darphin today.

Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Anti-Aging Dual
Action Moisture Boost Gel.
Skin+Pharmacy is one of the most underrated beauty brands you will discover this year. Offering an array of skin care essentials that work to restore and repair your skin, Skin+Pharmacy is exclusively available at CVS. Recently, I had the opportunity to try Skin+Pharmacy's Advanced Skin Therapy Healing Gel.

The texture is outstanding, as this amazing Skin+Pharmacy essential has a very creamy gel-like texture more so than an oil, serum, cream or lotion. Using special Hydropore+ technology this product works amazingly to hydrate the most dehydrated skin without irritating it. The hydration is virtually instantaneous.

When it comes to fine lines and wrinkles, this fantastic face gel will help reduce them. It will also work to nourish the skin and provide your skin with an amazing balance that will not irritate nor disrupt your skin's natural acid mantle. Possessing an unique advanced mineral complex blend, you can use this product alone or pair it with your favorite moisturizer.

The gel-like texture allows this product to be used as a foundation primer. In fact, this product works as one of the best foundation primers you will use, especially if you suffer from dry skin and are looking for an outstanding base that will not dry up, flake nor fade throughout the day. If you are looking for the perfect lip moisturizer that also works to lock in your favorite lip product, this Skin+Pharmacy gem will do just that. This anti-aging add-on will prevent your lipstick from feathering.

This product also works amazing when used all over the body. You can use this on your neck, your breasts, your chest, your arms, your legs, your butt - everywhere. This product also works as a workout enhancer and a targeted treatment. If you wear a waist trainer, this product will become your best friend. As this amazing Skin+Pharmacy works as a natural thermogenic to increase circulation and promote sweating during your workout, it stimulates sweat glands.

Spring is near and before you know it, Summer will magically appear. What better way to embrace the season than with a tan so luminous, it will literally look like the sun decided to jump down and kiss your skin. Add a little bit of your favorite self tanning product to this gel-like gem and your skin will look and feel ultimately amazing. This product also works to heal both sun and wind burned skin too.

Although this product is not 100% natural, it is effective when used alone or combined with your favorite moisturizer. And although it contains fragrance, it is fragrance-free and has no scent to it which one can really appreciate.

You can grab the Skin+Pharmacy Advanced Skin Therapy Healing Gel at CVS for $19.99. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Yes. Would I recommend this product to you? Absolutely. For more information about this amazing anti-aging addition visit CVS today.

Supersmile Professional Activating Rods


Supersmile products including the
Professional Activating Rods.
Supersmile is an oral care company that was founded in 1987 by Mrs. Lucia Smigel. I recently discovered the Professional Activating Rods by Supersmile. The recommended usage is once per week or whenever you need an extra whitening boost. I decided to try this product last week for the first time with Supersmile's Whitening System, in an effort to whiten my teeth. Did it work? What did I think?

PROS


At first, I found myself a little confused about how to use these activating rods, until I discovered the simplicity of them. All you have to do is snap open the capsule, place the swab inside and as you push up, apply it to your teeth.

What I love about this outstanding Supersmile addition is the fact that it is safe. Believe it or not, it conditions your tooth enamel. Not only is this safe, but works to accelerate the whitening process. It isn't harsh, which is why I love it so much.

The Sodium Bicarbonate in this product works to deep clean the surface, which makes this product not only useful in a whitening sense, but in a clarifying sense too.

When it comes to the level of whitening, I noticed a huge difference. The results are incredibly astonishing for just one use. As effective as they are now, I definitely believe they are going to be even greater in the future.

CONS


The Supersmile Activating Rods use Hydrogen Peroxide to prepare the tooth enamel. Although Hydrogen Peroxide has proved to be a safe medium in whitening teeth effectively, if you are someone who isn't a fan of Peroxide or believes differently, you may not be fond of this product.

If you are a budget or looking to spend under $10, you are not going to be interested in this product.

This product is beneficial in so many ways, however; if you don't intend to purchase the Supersmile Whitening System, it isn't as effective.

You can purchase Supersmile's Activating Rods at Supersmile.com or at your nearest Supersmile retailer for $36. Would I recommend this product to a friend or family member? Absolutely, but only if they are interested in whitening their teeth. Would I use this product again? Most definitely. In fact, I just used it 10 minutes ago.

Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Multi-Corrective Divine Cream

Darphin is luxury skin care at it's finest. Created to mimic the results of Pierre Darphin's effectual deep massage, this cream works to correct every aspect of anti-aging such as lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dehydration. Recently, I had the opportunity to try the Darphin STIMULSKIN PLUS Multi-Corrective Divine Cream. So, what did I think?

PROS

This cream works to not only correct your skin's tribulations, but repair and prevent them, as well. Whether you suffer from fine lines or deep wrinkles or even uneven skin tone or just need some hydration, this product works wonders. 

The texture of this face cream is unbelievable. It reminds me of a thick serum almost. I also enjoy the fragrance because it's modestly subtle. In fact, it is so light, it isn't overpowering in any way. Nothing is more revolting than a face product that smells like perfume.

You know when you apply a face cream and you think it's great...then all of the sudden, you notice this weird, white film appearing out of no where? And you wonder "did my moisturizer just dry out on my face?" Well, guess what? This moisturizer does not do that. I absolutely love this moisturizer because it does not dry out and create an awkward film on your face. In fact, it sinks into your skin like a second skin and as a result, keeps your skin incredibly hydrated.

This moisturizer is perfect for anyone with normal, combination dry, dry, or excessively dry skin. So, whether you have normal-to-dry or combination dry or even just dry skin, you will benefit from this product.

Darphin does NOT test on animals, as they are strongly committed to the value of life. 

CONS

Darphin's moisturizer uses a variety of ingredients such as Sea Emerald and Samphire extract, along with an unique peptide blend of ingredients. If you are allergic or suffer a reaction from these ingredients, then I do not think you will be interested in this product.

If your skin is incredibly oily or oily skin in general, I do not think you would benefit by using this face cream.

This face moisturizer is almost $300. In fact, it is $295. If you are not willing to spend this amount of money, then you will not be interested in this amazing Darphin addition. 

Darphin's STIMULSKIN PLUS Multi-Corrective Divine Cream can be purchased at Darphin or your nearest Darphin retailer for $295. Would I use this product again? Absolutely. In fact, I just used it like a second ago. Would I recommend this product to a friend or family member? Yes, but only if they are willing to spend $295 on a face cream. For more information about this product, please visit Darphin today.

Planet Beach Body Contour Oil


I have been quite a fan of Planet Beach and the brand itself. So, when I was offered the opportunity to review a Planet Beach beauty product, I was quite stoked when I discovered the Body Contour Oil. So, what did I think?


 
PROS


Not only does this product work to moisturize the skin, the hydration is incredibly and as a result, is long-lasting. If you have dry skin, you will not only love this product, but appreciate it much more so.
 


This product works to tighten the skin naturally. Not only does it increase cell turnover, but your skin's circulation too. It also works to tone the skin, as well.
 

If you have itchy skin, you will appreciate this product for it's amazing ingredients and strong ability to relieve virtually any type of skin aliment such as eczema, psoriasis, and even acute dry skin.
 
The scent of this product is amazing. Nothing is more of a turnoff than a horrible scent. You can have the best product in the world, but if it smells bad, it definitely not the product. You can smell all of the natural ingredients in this product, which I absolutely love.

 
CONS

 
Some of the ingredients include: Camellia Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Kukui Oil, and Lime Oil. If you are allergic to any of these ingredients, it is very important to refrain from using this product.
 
Like most body care products, the results are not instantaneous. You need to use this product for weeks before you start to see results.
 
Although the results are evident when used alone, they are not huge let alone dramatic unless used in conjuction with heat or some sort of thermogenic type of medium.
 
If your skin is very oily, you may not benefit from this product because it is an oil based product.

 
The Body Contour Oil by Planet Beach is available at the Planet Beach Shop for $26. Would I use this product again? Yes. Would I recommend this product to a friend? Absolutely. For more information about this amazing Planet Beach addition, simply click here right now.
