John Frieda Frizz Ease Shampoo & Conditioner

#BeautyBagDolls I have a review for you today of the John Frieda Frizz Ease Haircare system. I have every piece you need to keep your frizz at bay! The Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. These 2 product's deliver moisture to help you control your frizz issues with ease. To purchase your visit here. To learn more read on.
Add  John Frida Frizz Ease Shampoo & Conditioner to your routine for frizz free hair!

When I hop into the shower I grab the John Frieda Frizz Ease Daily Nourishment Moisturizing Shampoo and on my wet hair I use about a quarter size amount (my hair is long) you will immediately notice the shampoo smells amazing and cleans your hair well. The formula has essential nutrients and silk protein. When you follow it up with the Frizz Ease  Daily Nourishment Moisturizing Conditioner, you will notice it smells great and helps moisturize your hair and already help tame frizz it is made with the same nutrient and silk proteins as the shampoo

These two are beauty bag must haves. After I styled my hair each time after using this system I had almost no frizz for the entire day which if I have a little frizz by 9PM I am not complaining at all in fact this is a 5$$$$ hair care system from John Frieda and I am also happy to say that it is a beauty bag must have that get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

This is the best way to start the year! New Skincare from It Cosmetics and foundation infused with skincare! On Sale for one day only on QVC.com

So I have been using these products for a long time now each piece is a beloved must have and the newest to the It Cosmetics line is their Confidence in an Eye Cream. I have gone through 2 jars of this wonderful eye cream since spring and this will now be my third. This has amazing ingredients   apricot tint and Drops of Light Technology visibly color-correct and brighten, proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate and other high-performance skin-loving ingredients—including a super ceramide complex, chrysin, licorice root, avocado and squalane—work to hydrate, smooth and refresh." These ingredients are working my eye area and making me really happy with my results. I use this twice a day morning and night after cleansing. I have seen such an improvement in my eye area because of Confidence in an Eye Cream in my fine lines and it the brightening. This alone will make you rave about the QVC TSV and if this brand new product is not enough than my favorite and Customer Choice Beauty Award Winner from QVC is worth your time.

Will never be without this eye cream it has truly given me confidence since it has improved my eye area!
My go to moisturizer for a long time now and I will not be without it! My skin drinks it in and then I can easily apply my makeup!

Confidence in a Cream is also included in this 5 Piece Collection. Confidence in a Cream is a staple in my beauty to routine and I have gone through at least 6 or 7 jars now along with some travel size ones as well. I am addicted to this cream year round. It give me just the right amount of hydration for my combination skin type (although I am known now to switch between this one and their Secret Sauce moisturizer when I have super dry skin). This is an amazing transforming moisturizing super cream that is for all skin types, which means its perfect for anyone like me with acne prone skin that is super sensitive. I must also note that it does have a lemon scent to it which is my favorite scent when it comes to a face cream, it was not irritating to me at all in fact it is refreshing. A little more background information about It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cream is that it "nourishes your skin with collagen, hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, antioxidants and colloidal oatmeal to help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the texture of your skin and delivering the ideal amount of moisture." My personal experience has been nothing but perfection for my imperfect skin. After the first use and just about 5 minutes after applying Confidence In A Cream to my neck, décolletage and face I noticed that it absorbed within a minute, didn't feel greasy or heavy and my fine lines around my eyes plumped up and look smooth. I also felt that my chest, neck and face had the perfect amount of moisture.Want to purchase shop Item number A305722
Light weight yet full coverage! My favorite foundation for a year now! A Beauty bag must have!

This is WOW I mean a full coverage foundation that is a solid super cream just truly changed the game and yes of course it has SPF 50+ physical sunscreen. I mean you only need very little on the Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush also included in th
e TSV New Year New Confidence in Your Skin 5 Piece Collection. I press my brush into this compact and buff it onto my skin and the coverage is instant. It feels cool on my skin and the coverage is buildable from light to a good medium coverage. My acne scars and redness disappears instantly and the formula never sits in my fine lines or wrinkles. Oh and I love the dewy/glowy finish, its beautiful!  The solid serum technology combined  with a super ceramide complex, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid and squalene give you the look of your most youthful, flawless skin and with my Birthday being just a few days ago I can honestly say no one thinks I am the age I am when I wear It Cosmetics makeup and skincare line! When you combine the Confidence in a Comact with SPF 50+ with the  Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is just amazing angled perfectly to get into the contours of you face including under your eye area and around your nose for even flawless application is just a dream. I mean It Cosmetics brushes have been my favorite for a very long time now and they have truly kicked it up when the brush hair itself has skincare infused right into it! Of course it is custom cut like all of their brushes and the hair itself is designed to optically blur away the look of imperfections so combined with the Confidence in a Compact with SPF 50 these are a match made in makeup and skincare heaven!

CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar

So its not secret I can get lost on beauty websites and inside the stores of Ulta and Sephora for hours at a time. I also enjoy spending some time in the aisles of Nordstrom, Macys, Target and local drug store to look at what beauty product are out there. I compare drug store product to mid range and high end products but I never discriminate because of price. My favorite find is one that works and I was thrilled to pick up CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar. The brand is on Ulta.com however I wanted more variety so I went to my local Target Store and found the exact product I was looking for. Read on to learn more.
A great hydrating cleansing bar! 

I was looking for a soap bar type product that I would be able to use on my face, neck and chest while in the shower. I found the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser Bar for dry to normal skin which describes my neck and chest perfectly. This claims to lock in moisture, has ceramides and hyaluronic acid. I was intrigued grabbed it for only $5.99 (total bargain compared to cleaners I usually buy). I used it the night I brought it home and I was thrilled. I removed my eye makeup then used this on my wet face and neck worked it into a lather and this really got everything off without any irritation. My skin felt and looked clean and soft. I put it to the test when I followed up with a toner and a little makeup was left behind so do follow up with a favorite toner type product to make sure you have removed all of your makeup. It was not overly hydrating so I still followed up with my normal skin care routine. I will use this from time to time on my face however I will use it daily on my neck and chest because it keeps my skin feeling soft without any irritation which was exactly what I was looking for. For those reasons this is a 5 $$$$$ and a beauty bag must.

Shop Target to purchase.

NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018

A New Year brings me a New NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018. Happy New Year #BeautyBagDolls! I am excited to kick off my blog reviews for you in 2018 with the NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 2018. This box of goodies arrived at the end of December which ment I had several days to try them out before the New Year. I am so excited to tell you that this NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018 has 10 total product 7 of which are full size! Read on to learn more.
The NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018 is the best way to start the year! So many favorites! 

There were several products in the NewBeauty TestTube I was excited about and the first one is the Hourglass Ambient Light Correcting Primer this is a full size tube of primer that will neutralize and bring luminosity to your skin. Just apply this to your skin before makeup and it will instantly bring a soft radiance to your dull skin and this is what my skin needs during this cold harsh winter.  Next was a full size Linhart Toothpaste . This was new too me but I was excited to try it out. I noticed it smelled yummy and tasted yummy as well. After using my teeth were cleaned and polished without feeling irritated. The tube was very different looked more like a tube of hand cream than toothpaste. A very unique fun design as well as effective dental care. The third product is so cute I see it as a two part sample. I love the makeup bag Neocell included as well as the sample packtes of their Neocell Cermide Skin Hydrator. These caplets were and easy to swallow caplet that helps to plump your skin with hydration. I didn't have an upset stomach after taking these so I will be purchasing the full size right after I am done with my current vitamins. The fourth product was a full size My Looking Glass Studio Lights Liquid Shadow in the beautiful shade of light bronze. This was my favorite part of my routine because it was the quickest thing. I just dabbed a bit of this onto my lid and blended it out quickly with my ring finger. It was a beautiful shade. The fifth product was yet another full size product, I mean NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018 is something I am addicted to a Purifying Mud Mask from Absolute Natural. The brand is new to me but I am so happy to be introduced to it! I have acne prone skin so my pores do get clogged and this truly detoxed my skin and I only needed to use it twice a week however after one use my skin was bright and didn't feel dried out like with other mud masks. Defiantly repurchasing this to fuel my mask addiction.

The next product in this jam packed TestTube is the It's A 10 Silk Express Miracle Silk Leave In. I am a huge fan of It's A 10 and this product was one I never tried before and now I am addicted. My hair felt hydrated and very soft after using this leave in and I am putting this on my list to repurchase. If you have been reading my blog posts throughout the years you know how much I love a lip product and I am thrilled that NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018 included one I received the Starlooks Velveteen Ultra Longwear Matte Lip Paint which is absolutely perfect because it is a longwear perfectly pigmented lip paint. It doesn't budge for hours so I used it for my New Years Eve party since I knew I would have time to reapply lip color. This too was another full size product. Now if you are worried about your neck area then the TestTube has you concerns in mind. The Z Skin Neck Firming Cream has SPF 4 along with Shea butter and vitamin E to help you neck look fabulous. This too was another full size goodie. The final full size product is the Biosilk Volumizng Therapy Texturizing Powder. I thought I had already had my texturizing powder until this one came into my life. This smells wonderful and goes to work instantly giving my hair volume right at the root. The final product is the Truist Skincare Lotion-Infused Moisturizing Gloves these are a hand savoir for me at this time of the year. My hands are taking a beating with this dry, cold weather and my hands suffer the most. Well now these gloves rescued them in just 15 minutes. Slip these on and relax as the avocado and jojoba oil go to work to nourish your dry hands instantly.

I am so glad I got to try out 10 products from the NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 January 2018 you have to try this sampling program out! I give this TestTube 2.0 a 5 $$$$$ because it is wide variety of beauty products from skincare to haircare along with so 7 FULL SIZE Goodies this month! You will be really happy to discover something new so pick it up today before it sells out and I am already excited for the next!

Extra Love From Anna:  I must give extra love to a sampling program that includes full size product that are just amazing for the price!
