Review: Gillette Venus Snap With Embrace, Best Sensitive Razors - Ribbon Of Moisture Formula

I just recently came back from a much-needed 3-day weekend vacation and of course packed my trusty Gillette Venus & Olay razor. In a hurry, I wrapped it in some paper towel and as soon as I arrived at my hotel room, hung it up awkwardly in the shower. “If only there was an easier way to travel with my Venus Razor!” I shouted up into the heavens. Hoping that maybe the goddess, Venus herself, would answer.

When I got back home, I was invited to a Venus event (which let us try out some amazingly cool new workouts: SurfSet Fitness, anyone?) and was completely surprised. Gillette Venus has just come out with a new, TRAVEL-FRIENDLY razor: Venus Snap, which features a Venus Embrace blade refill on a mini handle, all in a convenient and cute compact for instant smoothness in a Snap!

I quietly mouthed “Thank you” as I looked upward, and I think the goddess herself answered my plea. The Snap is beautifully designed and comes in a portable compact that conveniently goes anywhere you might need instant smoothness – from your purse, travel or gym bag to the desk drawer and car.

The mini handle is easy to grip for control while shaving and convenient to store. The mini-handle is also interchangeable with Venus Embrace blade refills. Can this get any better?
This beauty essential features 5-blades surrounded by a Protective Ribbon of Moisture for glide, delivering Venus’ unsurpassed closeness. Just wet the razor and you are ready for any on-the-go touch-ups.

DID YOU KNOW?  Venus set out to discover why 60% of women felt their sensitive skin was getting in the way of a close, smooth shave…

And just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, there is another new addition to the Venus razor clan: Venus Embrace Sensitive — brings together 5-blades for an ultra-close shave and a protective ribbon of moisture with a touch of aloe to reveal beautiful skin, even on sensitive skin.

Venus’ most advanced shaving technology gives women a closer shave with 5 thin, floating blades that are spaced closely together for reduced pressure per blade. New Lubrastrip Technology helps avoid irritation with 3X Glide Enhancers to create a thick cushion between the razor and your skin. The enhanced Ribbon of Moisture has a touch of aloe and increased protective lubricants to surround the shaving surface for a smooth glide before and after each stroke.

Now I have my little Snap to go with me on more vacations and a razor made exclusively for sensitive skin. Bring on the summer!

Review, Ingredients: Dial Vitamin Boost Super C And Super B Body Washes - Oil And Lotion Infused Shower Gels To Wake You Up!
What better way to try a new body wash and see if it REALLY deep cleans than to work up a sweat! We were invited by Dial to try out an exciting trampoline fitness workout at Complete Body Downtown in NYC. We jumped to Britney Spears (worked, b&@$#!) and most definitely needed a shower afterwards.

What awaited in the gym showers was a bottle of the NEW Dial Vitamin Boost Body Washes — available in Super C and Amazing B. I used Super C and was instantly greeted with a rich and citrus-y aroma that only became more potent as the hot water raged on.

My skin felt cleansed and refreshed, while the natural oils and advanced moisture-attracting formula helped draw out vitamins and moisture directly to the surface for healthy and moisturized skin. There was no need for moisturizer afterwards, only some serious hair styling.

New Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash gives your skin a daily boost of vitamins, leaving your skin feeling so healthy and soft, people can’t help but notice. The advanced moisture-attracting formula is also found in the Amazing B wash, a lotion-infused formula that smells fruity and sweet.

If you’re looking to add some more protein into your skincare, the New Yogurt Body Washes are an ultra-moisturizing formula rich in yogurt proteins that deliver long-lasting moisturization for softer skin. Yogurt is a natural skin conditioner that helps skin retain moisture. The Vanilla Honey scent smells like milky honey, while the Frozen Body Wash wraps skin in cooling moisture to leave you feeling refreshed and ready to go.

Product Ban: New Research Proves MicroBead Shower Gels/Washes Harmful To Health! Review – Surya Brasil Sapien Body Scrub

Pinterest

sapien women gold

With the growing awareness of the harmful effects caused by microbeads found inside beauty products, states like New York and California are taking action by proposing a ban on the inclusion of plastic beads found in facial scrubs, toothpastes and more, according to The New York Times.

Deemed a threat to the environment and overall human health, these tiny particles find their way undetected into oceans, and are then consumed by aquatic marine life — therefore disrupting the natural food chain and encouraging these same toxins to spread to the human body.

Also contributing to the ocean’s larger plastic pollution problem, NPR finds that fish found in the Great Lakes area are feeling the effects of this problem firsthand, as recent research shows that fish are actually ingesting these particles!

By avoiding active ingredients such as polyethylene and polypropylene, consumers can take control by paying closer attention to the ingredients found in personal care products. Plus, with the help of informative and helpful technological apps, personal knowledge and awareness is right at your fingertips.

Beat the MicroBead App

Apps such as Beat the Microbead, allows you to simply scan the barcode of any desired product. The app then uses unique color-coding to detect microbeads found in any item. For example, if the app reads green, the product is free of microbeads. However, the app’s other color indicators determine if a product may contain microbeads (red) or if a company is proposing to adapt the product formula (which will then be indicated with an orange color).

For a guaranteed, microbead-free product you can trust, Surya Brasil has recently released the Sapien Women Body Scrub, containing natural ingredients such as coconut bark and organic buriti for a healthy-looking glow.

And even though it’s a slow but steady process, know that the bigger cosmetic conglomerates are willing to make the change. The Los Angeles Times reports that industry giants such as Procter & Gamble Co. and Johnson and Johnson are pledging to make a change in the coming years.

Review: How To Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD – For Better Beauty Sleep With Philips Wake-Up Light – Therapy Gently Wakes You!

Review: How To Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD - For Better Beauty Sleep With Philips Wake-Up Light - Therapy Gently Wakes You Up!

We’re in deep winter, so you might find yourself getting a case of the winter blues. And if you’re on the East Coast, then this Polar Vortex has really got you down. The mornings are dark and cold, and when you hear that alarm clock go off in the morning, well, that’s exactly what you want to do — “go off” on your alarm clock!

Skinceuticals Resveratrol B E Antioxidant Night Concentrate – Fight Free Radical Damage While You Sleep!

I’m not ashamed to say that the winter weather can certainly get me down sometimes. I incorporate more exercise to avoid those moody slumps. But I also found a new way of waking up more energized and feeling less irritable. I have been using the Philips Wake-Up Light since December, and boy, has it made a difference in my morning disposition.

Review: How To Treat Seasonal Affective Disorder SAD - For Better Beauty Sleep With Philips Wake-Up Light - Therapy Gently Wakes You Up! Rise and shine! (Numbers came out like that when I took the photo!)

You can say that I am slowly but surely becoming a morning person. The Wake-Up Light simulates the natural rise of the sun by using a unique combination of light therapy and sound to wake you up in a gentle and natural way, so you are ready for the day ahead. How do you think people got up in the morning before alarm clocks? They would naturally awake to the warm and inviting glow of the sunrise.

 Research shows us that people who wake up early are happier, healthier and more satisfied. A recent survey found that nearly 6 out of 10 employed Americans hit the snooze button at least once a week – and hitting the snooze button enables bad habits that detract from a healthy morning routine.

Philips is committed to improving peoples’ lives through innovative products that enhance their existing routines,” said Annette Domnik, Senior Marketing Director at Philips Consumer Lifestyle. 

“The traditional wake-up routine involves a noisy alarm, which is a disruptive and less than natural way to rise. With Philips Wake-Up Light, we are providing a solution that offers a better way to start your day.”

It’s easy to use and the clock’s sleek, white design is quite appealing. You simply set your time for when you want to wake up and 30-mins before your alarm goes off, the warm, yellow light gradually brightens the room — just like the sun.

Unknowingly, your body will begin to wake up and you feel less groggy and cranky. Light falls on your eyes and increases the level of energy in your body, gently preparing your body to wake up. This makes waking up a more pleasant feeling. And it really does work!

New Research: Beauty Sleep – Does More Sleep Make Your Skin Look Younger, Better?

The sensitivity to light differs a lot per person. In general, when using a higher light intensity a person needs less time to become fully awake. The light intensity of the Wake-Up Light can be set up to 200 lux. This makes sure you can wake-up to the light intensity that suits your personal preference best.

And if you have to hit the snooze, you simply tap the top of the light and in 9-mins the alarm will sound again. I try not to do this too often.

Review, Before/After Photos: Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream – Best BB Cream For Your Body! 5 Benefits In 1 Moisturizer

Review, Before/After Photos: Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream - Best BB Cream For Your Body! 5 Benefits In 1 Moisturizer

Five means fabulous with the new Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream. The sheer, delicious-smelling cream delivers the results of a face cream only on your body. Finally, a body cream that is way more than just a moisturizer!

It promises to deliver “5 visible results in 5 days!” So, I was excited to give it a try. The cream says it will hydrate and smooth, brighten and illuminate, even skintone, visibly firm skin and minimize skin imperfections.

Before

Review, Before/After Photos: Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream - Best BB Cream For Your Body! 5 Benefits In 1 Moisturizer

My legs have been super-dry this winter, so I was beyond excited to give this body cream a try. I smoothed on the sheer cream post-shower for 5 days. And while I didn’t enjoying standing there naked and cold while it dried (which is recommended), I did enjoy the benefits.

After

Review, Before/After Photos: Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream - Best BB Cream For Your Body! 5 Benefits In 1 Moisturizer

Besides being more hydrated, which I would hope all body lotions  do, I did notice more even, smoothed, illuminated skin. However, I didn’t notice my skin feeling any firmer or the minimization of imperfections yet; I would give it a few more days to see those results. Overall, I really liked this body cream. I am going to continue using it to see if the results continue.

The self-adjusting tone technology is supposed to match your skintone, which is super-cool. It worked well with my skintone (I used the All Light Skin Tones version), but I’m wondering if it would match ones that are a few shades lighter or darker.

Have you tried this body perfecting cream?
