Review – Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical Body Soap (great for acne on the body)

During my recent trip to Florida I was fortunate to make a few visits to Ulta. I must say that I really hope they bring Ulta to Canada because it is a makeup HEAVEN! They have everything you need from your nik-nak cheaper brands to your high end brands. They even have a hair studio where you can get your hair styled!

While I was at Ulta I decide to pick up this Mario Badescu body wash. My first encounter with Mario Badescu products was a few years back when I went to NYC to attended a Martha Stewarts show. At the end of the show she gave the whole audience a 4 piece Mario Badescu Skincare line. I fell in love with the products.

Mario Badescu A.H.A Botanical Body Soap

AHA Botanical Body Soap is enriched with fresh Fruit Extracts to exfoliate and cleanse the skin. Papaya and Grapefruit Extracts help breakdown dead skin cells to leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Ginseng Extract rejuvenates while Oat Protein soothes sensitive and irritated areas. Excellent choice for those with problem skin on the back, chest and shoulders. Leaves no soapy residue and smells heavenly.

My Thoughts

I love it. I sometimes get acne on my back and ever since I have started using this I have not seen any new acne develop. It is not harsh on my skin and I do not feel dry and itchy after I use it. I highly recommend this product for anyone who has scaring on the body and would like to smooth out the texture of the skin. The price point of this product is also amazing! Its only $14 for a 16oz bottle.

Summer Weddings: Keeping makeup fresh and long lasting on hot summer days.

•July 25, 2012 • 1 Comment

We all know that most brides want there wedding in the summer. This gives them a opportunity to capture beautiful pictures outside and a wider variety in venue choices. However the down side to an outdoor summer wedding is the sweaty people and the melting faces.  Fear no more, just follow these steps and I promise you will have a fresh, melt free flawless face all day long.

 

  1. Properly cleanse, tone and moisturize your face. This will balance your skin and prevent your face from producing extra oils. If you don’t moisturize, chances are you will look like a grease ball 3 hours into your day. Reason why? The more you deprive your skin of moisture the more oil it will produce. If you’re already moisturized your skin will shut off all signals of more oil production. Try something light and oil free. Treat and oily skin like a normal skin and it will eventually become a normal skin type. (make sure you moisturizer is sunscreen free, this causes your skin to look whiter than your body in pictures using flash.)
  2. Use a matifying face primer/eye primer. Primers are important. They work wonders if you use them correctly. Use the primer before your makeup application. Small amounts will go a long way and make sure you apply it evenly. Primer work like a base coat for paint. It keeps your makeup lasting longer and looking great. Smoothing out the texture of the skin and also holding the makeup that is applied on top.
  3. Don’t over do the foundation. Less is more. If you have imperfections that need to be covered use a waterproof concealer in those areas and go easy on the parts that don’t need the coverage. The foundation should be the tool you use to even out your skin tone to give your face unity.  Using less foundation will prevent you from cake face and your makeup from moving around. Try to use a foundation that is waterproof and oil free.
  4. Set your makeup. Not once, but twice, maybe even three times. Set your face with a loose matte setting powder. Make sure you use a powder puff and work the powder into the skin with pressing movements. Repeat 2-3 times. After this is done, Use a makeup setting spray all over the face let it dry and repeat. The makeup setting spray works like a hairspray for the face, holding everything in place and locking everything in.

Tips: Always have blotting paper with you. Try not to use blotting powder because that might build up and make your face look caked.

 

Follow these steps and I promise you fresh flawless skin on your special day.

Keeping you beautiful – Joan

Look: Summer Eyes Lise Watier Summer Sunset Collection 2012

•June 15, 2012 • Leave a Comment

I was Super excited to dig into my Lise Watier summer sunset collection! Im totally loving the eyeshadow combo that they sent me. I used the Summer Sunset Eyeshadow in “Tropical”. The colours are super smooth, pigmented, easy to blend and silky.

 

Here is how to get the look: I used the Lise Waiter Jumbo Crayon in the colour sunshine as a base before my eyeshadow. I then applied the lightest colour from the palette all over my eyelids. Then using the green colour in the centre of my eyelids and working upwards and outwards. The Brown was used to contour the outer corners of the eyes. The green shade was also used at the bottom lash line. The upper lids were then lined with black liquid eyeliner and the bottom inner rim was lined with a waterproof black eyeliner.

This is a great look to add a bit of pop in your makeup!

Thanks for reading.

Joan
