Bioken Enfanti- Review and Giveaway

Thursday, December 15th, 2011


Have you heard of Bioken Enfanti? I recently learned about this company and got the opportunity to try some of their fantastic products. I will be honest in the beginning I was a little worried. Hearing that the products contain antibiotics-even natural ones, made me worry that it might have a harsh smell. I was pleasantly surprised that these products smell fantastic! I absolutely love the way my hair smells after using them…I love the way my hair looks and feels even more! So as far as the smell goes it is a light almost floral smell, it smells pretty and not over powering. As far as the change in my hair, it’s night and day. My hair for some reason gets this straw like texture. It is constantly dry and I have a lot of split ends. Bioken Enfanti transformed my hair to look shiny and healthy. Again shiny…I was worried that would mean greasy. But No, it just looks healthy and manageable. The frizz that always plagues my hair is gone. I always have those crazy flyaways on top of my head those seem to be more under control now too. I really am incredibly impressed at the change these products have made in my hair. I would recommend these products to anyone who has dry or frizzy hair. If these are not issues you have check out Bioken Enfanti anyway. They have several lines and one might just be perfect for you and your hair care needs!

Aveeno- Active Naturals Positively Radiant: Eye Illuminator- Review and RAFFLECOPTER Giveaway

Monday, September 5th, 2011


Aveeno products have been among my favorite for some time now. The Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator refreshes and hydrates under your eyes. It contains vitamin B3 and it’s the first eye serum designed to address the 5 factors of Radiance: Tone, texture, dullness, blotchiness and brown spots. The unique brush applicator is definitely different. I do like it its soft and I haven’t had any issues with the brush fanning out or losing its shape. You do need to squeeze the eye illuminator to squeeze the serum onto the brush. My only issue there is you need to be careful not to squeeze too hard or too much serum will come out. When this happens I use the excess for the fine lines around my mouth (smile lines) so the serum doesn’t go to waste. The serum smells great kind of a floral fragrance, the scent does dissipate within a minute or so. I have noticed that my face especially around my eyes seems more hydrated. The dark circles under my eyes seem less prevalent and I am hoping with continued use they may become a thing of the past.

Dark circles and dryness around the eyes are key factors that affect your natural radiance. Aveeno Positively Radiant Eye Illuminator contains an exclusive combination of Active Naturals Total Soy Complex boosted with tone-evening vitamin B3 and light-diffusing technology to rejuvenate your natural radiance and help you look fresh and luminous.

Buy It: You can find places to purchase Aveeno products like the Aveeno Postively Radiant Eye Illuminator on the Aveeno site.

Win It:One lucky reader will win a Aveeno Postively Radiant Eye illuminator.

Luminess Air- Review and Giveaway

Thursday, July 7th, 2011


Luminess Air has completely changed the way I do my makeup. It now only takes me minutes as in around 5 minutes or less. Looks completely professional, is super easy to do and is AWESOME! Okay so I will be completely honest I was so intimidated by this product I put off testing it for a few days because I was afraid I would fail horribly. Why? I am not sure. When I was younger I used to love doing my makeup but since I became a Mom it has been so hard to find the time and when I do actually do my makeup it is usually so slap dash. So maybe I was afraid that Luminess Air would not live up to what I wanted it to be, or maybe that I just would never get it right. Regardless of why I was so wrong! Luminess Air has exceeded my expectations and then some. I watched the video and then got to work. It was SO EASY to use! The airbrush feels great and your makeup goes on so beautifully no issue with cakeiness and no having to worry about cleaning brushes. Everything stays clean the airbrush stylus is super easy to clean it takes just seconds and the primer, makeup, eyeshadow everything looks fantastic and flawless. I was amazed that all you need is a drop for most makeup. The precision and ability to change the power or speed of the brush is fantastic.

Truly this is the only way I do makeup now. I gave away ALL my other makeup (sans eyeshadow) literally $100’s of dollars worth of makeup because this is the only way I wantto do my makeup from now on. Whether you want to have gorgeous flawless makeup, or if you are short on time like me or maybe both this is the way Luminess Air is worth every penny!

Piggy Paint Nail Polish- Review and Giveaway

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

And the Winner IS: Krystle Pigeon


Summer is here it’s time to show off those piggies! Kaia’s school had a beauty day where the kids got to do their hair (lots of gel and other goodies pretty hilarious), put on makeup (lots of eye liner everywhere again hilarious), and Kaia’s favorite they got to paint their nails- fingers and toes! Yes her school is awesome. Kaia has had quite the obsession with getting her nails done. In fact it is the only way I can get her to let me cut her nails. At school though they introduced something new, She got to paint her own nails. I have never let her do that at only four years of age I was not so sure she was ready but her nails actually looked pretty good when she came home and so I decided it was time I would let her paint her own nails. So we got out the awesome eco-friendly kid friendly, and just so cute Piggy Paint. I set out newspaper on the table to contain spills and little mistakes and let Kaia do her own thing. Well withing the first minute she dropped the whole bottle and it was all over our carpet. I panicked at first thinking OMG! Not the carpet. But thank goodness it was piggy paint I got out some towels and carpet cleaner and started scrubbing with minimal effort it was out of the carpet. You could not tell there was a spill. This random mistake sold me we will both now be using Piggy Paint not only is it good for us and our environment it also is easy to clean and honestly looks Oh so cute on. Kaia’s favorite color is the Ice Cream Dream, Thank goodness it stayed on her nails and not on our carpet.

Why is Piggy Paint Nail Polish the safe nail polish?

* Non-toxic
* Low Odor
* Water-based formula
* Hypoallergenic
* Fun, vibrant colors
* Dries to a hard, durable finish
* Cruelty-free
* Safe for use during Pregnancy!

Piggy Paint is specially formulated from God’s natural ingredients and dries to a hard, durable finish. There are no toxic chemicals; it’s free of formaldehyde, toluene, phthalates, Bisphenol A, ethyl acetate and acetone.

Say good-bye to harsh, smelly chemicals and hello to Piggy Paint…it’s as Natural as Mud!

Non-toxic nail polish for girls

* Wash hands with soap and water.
* Apply 2 -3 thin coats of Piggy Paint.
* Air dry 60 seconds.
* Blow dry polished nails for 1 minute with hair dryer set on warm heat/low blower setting. For safety purposes, please follow manufacturer’s instructions on blow dryer and always monitor your child.

Since most young children are squirmy during the drying process of any polish, we suggest singing songs to pass the time. Two rounds of the “ABC’s” should make 60 seconds pass by very quickly. Make “Piggy Painting” a bonding experience for you and your child.

Do I have to use a blow dryer to dry her nails?
No, but it is recommended for maximum chip resistance. Since Piggy Paint is water-based and does not contain harsh chemicals, it takes longer for its ultimate hardness to be reached. The blow dryer just speeds up this process.

Another alternative is to wait and polish your child’s nails after bath time, before they go to bed. This will allow the polish to cure overnight.

Piggy Paint As a Learning Tool

Fine Motor Skills
Let your child paint your fingernails or toenails. If you’re worried about it looking (well, like a child painted your nails), opt for the toenails…you can always put socks on in public! This helps with her fine-motor skills and gives her a chance to exert her independence.

Color Names
Are you trying to teach your child color names? Paint her nails with the specific color you’re working on (such as red) and declare it a “Red Day”. All day long, point out objects in her environment that match her nails, and encourage her to do the same. Wear red clothes, add red foods to mealtime and use a bath color tablet to make her bath water red. Once she’s mastered that color, paint her piggies a new color.

Patterns
Recognizing different types of patterns is a hard concept learn for children to learn, so why not put patterns right at their fingertips? For example, if you’re working on simple patterns, alternate blue and yellow “Piggy Paint” on her fingers. As you go through the day, help her to make patterns with her toys, M&M‘s, crayons, beads…use your creativity. Have her refer to her fingernails for help. Start out with color patterns and then attempt other categories, such as big doll, little doll, big doll, etc. Ready for harder patterns? Move to three different colors or alternate pink, purple, purple, pink, and so on.

School Colors
Does your daughter play any sports? Perhaps she has a favorite high school, collegiate, or professional team she cheers for. If so, paint her nails with her team’s colors to show her support.

Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover is a Natural nail polish remover

Why is Piggy Paint Nail Polish Remover the best choice?

* Low Odor
* No Acetone
* Hypoallergenic
* Biodegradable
