Frownies – patches that reduce wrinkles while you sleep

7 Oct

The Promise

  • Frownies are a simple method to reverse deep expression lines Frownies repair wrinkle-damaged skin without dangers of injections or toxic chemicals
  • Dramatically reduce lines and wrinkles safely and naturally
  • Trains the underlying facial muscles to regain the strength and tone they have lost
  • Use daily or nightly; leave on for a minimum of three hours

The Results

There are many things I’d do for beauty and going around with tape stuck on my face is one of them. Yes, no shame, no gain.

Now that I’m in my 30s  I’ve started to notice frown lines so I gladly stuck on these frownies every night for a week. They may not do much for one’s sex kitten status but  they do  smooth out brow furrows to such an extent that you can’t even see see the lines anymore. With consistent use you will see results but don’t expect to see a dramatic change after one use.

Ten Minute Hair Miracle

In ten minutes it promises it will:
1.) Repairs dry damaged hair 2.) Adds shine 3.) Smoothes & controls frizz 4.) Seals & protects hair color 5.) Detangles 6.) Prevents split ends 7.) Stops hair breakage 8.) Creates Silkiness 9.) Enhances natural body 10.) Flat iron spray & thermal protector


Directions
It’s amazingly easy to use: Shampoo and condition hair, towel dry, spray product

Results

It’s a TEN! What a find. At first I couldn’t imagine that one product would actually do all that this one claimed to. I tried it for a week with no other styling products, and since that week I’ve been converted. Especially good when I get out of the pool and my hair is dehydrated and unmanageable. I have very thick  curly hair that I blow dry straight and then use a GHD so it’s not in great condition naturally, after only ten minutes this product showed real results, I also found it brought out my highlights.

Would you brush your teeth in public? Well now you can.

21 Sep

Applying make-up at a dining table? No way.  Pluck your eyebrows in public view of anyone? Would prefer not. File your nails in the office? Okay, sometimes, but only if a nail breaks. Brush your teeth while waiting for the bus? WHAT?

That’s right. Apparently it’s just fine to wash your pearly whites on a bus, in the back of a taxi, or where ever the mood takes you. And that’s why Colgate have launched single-use toothbrushes. The blue bead released a minty flavour as the plastic bristles scrub your teeth (no rinsing required) and they’ve apparently come a long way from the little plastic one-use tooth brushes you used be able to buy in public bathrooms of swanky hotels.

Colgate Wish Peppermint Brushes are available from amazon.com and drugstore.com $2.50 for four.

Meow – Fetching Feline Finds for the eyes A/W 2010 Trend

2 Sep


Sleek hair, strong lips, contour under the cheekbone and feline kohl-rimmed eyes with winged lashes, oh how very A/W 2010.

I think the full feline craze is best left for the catwalks or brave sixteen year olds. I, myself, am trending more towards the sensual black eyeliner as perfected by the original sex bomb Brigitte Bardot, and perhaps I’ll play with a little feline flick for fun Saturday night antics.

Though I also adore how celebrities have interpreted the look, such as the beautiful Christina Hendrick who used light brown shadow to softly turn up the look.

And of course Kate Hudson, who nearly always gets it right.

Just like Nicole Richie who’s famous for her cats eyes
