It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Moisturizer

 It Cosmetics has answered a prayer of mine for everyone with sensitive skin that also has redness. This line Bye Bye Redness is one of my must haves since they introduced me to their neutralizing correcting cream but now the line has expanded to two additional shades of the correcting cream, a redness Erasing Correcting Powder (review coming soon) as well as the brand new It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Skin Relief Treatment Moisturizer, currently available at It Cosmetics.com and Ulta.com
My new must have moisturizer from It Cosmetics! It helps with my sensitive skin! 

It Cosmetics describes  Bye Bye Redness Moisturizer "helps neutralize and soothe the look of redness while providing deep hydration, and is gentle enough for even the most sensitive and dry skin. Perfect for a.m. and p.m., your redness-relieving moisturizer also smooths the look of lines and wrinkles, and is infused with anti-aging, skin-soothing colloidal oatmeal, aloe, cucumber, chamomile extract, avocado, chrysin, turmeric, collagen and peptides." If you have been reading my reviews and following my blog or twitter then you know I have issues with acne and some redness along with sensitive skin. If you are new to my blog welcome and if your returning thanks so much for your reading my reviews. My acne prone skin has caused redness in the form of some old scars along with the fact that I do get redness in my cheeks and chin. The fact that my skin is super sensitive makes my skincare routine difficult until It Cosmetics came out with a skincare line. I can use all of their skincare products from moisturizer to serums, however now they have the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness Moisturizer which is formulated with ingredients to improve skin redness. This goes on clear so I love that I can use it in the morning before applying makeup without it changing the shade of my makeup and I can use it at nigh of course. I saw a huge difference within 2 days which is four applications in total. My face did not first and foremost experience any sensitivity. I immediately felt that my skin was hydrated without feeling too heavy or sticky. I also noticed that the redness in my chin and cheeks was calmed and the redness from breakouts was also diminished and after a week I didn't notice my redness much at all it was not a priority to cover up with makeup anymore. Any marks from acne scaring were diminished and redness has faded away. I have never had a great experience with any moisturizer that promised any relief to redness until It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness came along. I get real results along with hydration and anti-aging benefits of reduced discoloration, lines and wrinkles. I can use this AM and PM with no issues which makes me so happy! I am giving this 5 $$$$$ and recommending this for your beauty bag along with absolute EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

It Cosmetics has now kick it up another notch by infusing their Bye Bye Lines Serum into a foundation called It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Foundation.

Grab It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Foundation and add it to your routine to add skincare to your makeup.

It Cosmetics website says "Bye Bye Lines Foundation starts its life as your hydrating anti-aging serum, and is infused with pure color pigments to seamlessly conceal the look of lines, wrinkles and imperfections and give you instant complexion perfection."  The ingredient deck is stacked with anti-aging peptides, caviar extract, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, argan oil and babassu oil, plus vitamins A, C, E, B1, B2, B3, B5, B7, B9 and CoQ10. I don't know where to start but to say that I do love this foundation. It is so lightweight on my skin and it almost seems as though it absorbs into my skin just like a serum but left behind coverage that was amazing! I was happy to use this all over my face even though I tend to have acne prone skin this did not cause a breakout instead it helps with the fine lines and wrinkles, it leaves your face feeling hydrated and soft unlike other liquid foundations that feel heavy and thick this is light weight and feels like nothing. I can use both the light and medium shade now and the fair is going to suit me during the winter months.

It Cosmetics Brow Power Powder/Brush/Pomade

#BeautyBagDolls I have been using It Cosmetics brow products for years and I didn't think it could get better but I should have known they always push their products to the next level. The It Cosmetics Brow Powder in universal Taupe shade, the Brow Power Heavenly Luxe Brow Power Universal Brow-Transformer Brush and finally the Brow Power Pomade are a trio that I cannot live without. To purchase these this fall visit It Cosmetics or Ulta.com
You will get your best brows with this Universal Taupe powder/brush and pomade. Beauty bag must haves from It Cosmetics launch this fall 2017.

Starting with the Brow Powder in Universal Taupe shade. This is "your breakthrough brow powder that is clinically tested to be waterproof - and is so easy to use, it does your brows for you! Developed with plastic surgeons, this groundbreaking product creates the look of real hair, and adds the look of soft volume and definition without ever appearing flat or drawn on. Perfect for both thin and thick brows, your brow innovation also features award-winning Brow Power Technology and transforms to all hair colors based on pressure. Infused with brow-enhancing biotin, saw palmetto and argan and jojoba oils, plus anti-aging antioxidants and collagen." My hair is a dark blonde shade and this matched back to my eye brows perfectly, along with filling in the tails to my eye brows. It truly adhered to my skin and my brow hairs. This Brow Power Powder is awesome and the Brow Power Heavenly Luxe Brow Power Universal Brow-Transformer Brush makes it a breeze to apply the powder with. The It Cosmetics  Heavenly Luxe Brow Power Universal Brow-Transformer Brush, is "a 2-in-1 tool that's so easy to use, it does the work for you!

I like to apply this right after I use the Brow Powder just to set my brows and it controls some unruly hairs. Its also something I have to have to apply at night during my nighttime beauty routine since it has ingredients that are good for my brows. I use a serum for my face, moisturizers and eye creams so why not take care of my brows too.

It Cosmetics SUPERHERO Liner

This new product from It Cosmetics is so near and dear to my heart because I have been wearing eye liner since I was in middle school and in all the years I have tried everything from pencils to gels to liquids. I am always searching for next best liner that will glide on and not budge until I decide to remove it. It Cosmetics answered that with their new Fall 2017 debut of SUPERHERO Liner it is a 24 hour Waterproof easy glide liquid-gel super liner. I want to note that this is available right now for purchase at It Cosmetics.com and Ulta.com
The application tip is truly amazing you cannot make a mistake! Superhero Liner is a beauty bag must have!

Described my It Cosmetics as  Superhero Liner "gives your eyes SUPERHERO powers and instant definition in one simple stroke. Whether you want to create thin, thick or cat-eye strokes, this innovative liner pen makes it easier than ever—and features a unique IT Cosmetics Heavenly Skin brush hair tip that literally does the work for you! Unlike typical felt-tip liners, this luxurious brush hair tip won’t fray and applies your liner with effortless precision." Precision is something I can attest to because I am always nervous when doing my cat eye and this didn't skip or smudge. I always wore it for 14 hours and it never ever budged until I washed it off! The pigment of color is a true super black which is what I reach for most of the time when applying an eye liner. I am also thrilled with the lash loving ingredients like  peptides, collagen, biotin, keratin and kaolin clay. My eyes pop even with my more natural look which is exactly what I have been going for! I am so happy with this It Cosmetics SUPERHERO Liner it truly is the superhero in my beauty bag since I will not even go to the grocery store without having my eye liner done. This is my everyday liner and my I am going out on a date night or girls night eye liner since it is so versatile and dependable. This is a 5 $$$$$ and a beauty bag must have along with getting EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder

 Hello #BeautyBagDolls I am so happy to be review the new products from It Cosmetics that are debuting for Fall 2017 now I started to review the product that are geared toward acne prone skin and redness since I am dealing with those issues and I will review everything else as well since fine lines and products for illumination, brows, eye liner, foundation, concealer, moisturizer and cleanser were included in this massive fall launch on It Cosmetics and Ulta.com but I promised you the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder review in my Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer review which you can check out here. To learn about the Bye Bye Breakout powder read on.
These beauty bag must haves for breakout acne prone skin is now available for purchase at Ulta.com and I apply it w/ my favorite IT Brushes for Ulta powder foundation brush (brush not included w/ purchase of Bye Bye Breakout Powder). 

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder is described as a Blemish-Minimizing Weightless Finishing Veil for Oily/Acne Prone Skin." It will "minimize the appearance of blemishes and combat shine in just one step with Bye Bye Breakout Powder, your airbrushed complexion perfection in a jar! Developed with plastic surgeons, this skin-perfecting innovation reduces shine while helping to diffuse the appearance of blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles." It is infused with anti-aging peptides and hydrolyzed collagen, plus oil-absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, colloidal oatmeal, tea tree, sulfur and a gentle AHA/BHA complex, Bye Bye Breakout Powder goes on completely sheer and delivers a buildable, flawless finish for all skin tones." I was super excited to try this and I am using it in conjunction with the Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer which if you would like to read my full review click here.

The powder comes in 3 Shades; Translucent, Light/Medium and Tan/Rich. I was immediately drawn to Translucent and the Light/Medium. After testing the Translucent shade I knew it was perfect and that I could use it to set my concealer anytime I need it to make sure it takes down shine and help to treat my acne prone skin. When I looked at the Light/Medium shade I was a little worried it may be to dark for me however after applying it and it warming up to my skin I had no issues it blended beautifully and gave me a flawless finish. I must note that this is a light weight loose powder that is buildable coverage so for me I sometimes use this alone over concealer or I would use this to set my concealer and then used a powder foundation like Bye Bye Redness Redness Erasing Correcting Powder (review coming soon). I am personally in love with the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Powder I am thrilled to have something formulated for my skin type and concerns that I can grab and use when I need the help and it also has anti-aging benefits which always concerns me and when a products are geared toward acne they usually never are including anti-aging but thankfully It Cosmetics think of everything when making a powder for breakout prone skin. Just because I have acne prone skin doesn't mean I am not concerned about aging skin as well so Thank You It Cosmetics for caring! This is a beauty bag must have that get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA along with a 5 $$$$$.

hairdo French Braid Band

I am over the moon excited to share with all of my #BeautyBagDolls a review of a brand called hairdo. They are a brand of hair extensions, wigs and accessories. This is a brand that is really awesome. I have a few different pieces to review and I am starting with the hairdo French Braid Band. This for me is the easiest way to start experimenting with hair extensions or accessories if your nervous. I wanted to dive right into everything but I went slow! To buy yours visit here.
The French braid from hairdo will add style to your hair in an instant! 

Now like with any hair extension or accessory you have to choose a shade for me I knew I wanted to match mine as close as possible so after reviewing all the shades I knew that Butter Toast (dark blonde) would be perfect for me. hairdo makes several different shades and in the French Braid Band option there were 8 to choose from however, remember each shade choice mixes up to 11 shades of colors to make your perfect match. When I opened my box of goodies and saw they were Chestnut/light brown and I could immediately see the color was not perfect but that it would add dimension. I immediately slipped in on over my head played around a bit to adjust it (yes their is adjustable band that will adjust to fit your head perfectly) I wore this for the rest of the day at home and then worked it into my hair style the next day for work! It was easy to use and never moved, I had a 10 hour work day and never had to take it out and put it back in! I also love how I could tease my hair and place the hairdo French Braid Band and dress it up for a special occasion to go out to dinner with friends. Its comfortable and great for any hair occasion! The color match is on point and I could not be happier! This is a beauty bag must and a 5 $$$$$ this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA without a doubt.

It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cleanser

I love a good cleanser but I fall hard for a great cleanser that not only cleanses my face, removes makeup and has skincare serum built into it. When It Cosmetics came out with Bye Bye Makeup that was my ultimate must have and it still is but now they have taken it to another level which means this the Confidence In A Cleanser is a cleanser I can use each and everyday with makeup on or not and even in the morning. Confidence In A Cleanser is available at It Cosmetics.com and Ulta.com in Fall 2017.
A cleanser that takes off makeup with ease and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple each and every time! Love it!

You are all wondering what the It Cosmetics Confidence In A Cleanser is about well is your "hydrating cleansing serum. Suitable for all skin types, this is a revolutionary one-step, hydrating cleanser that melts away dirt, oil, and makeup while leaving your skin feeling soft and refreshed. Your skin will appear radiant, look younger, and will feel soft, smooth, and supple because this is a truly innovative cleansing serum."  It also features the "proprietary Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate to help your skin appear rejuvenated and restore moisture, plus anti-aging collagen, hyaluronic acid, colloidal oatmeal and a super ceramide complex, Confidence In A Cleanser delivers powerful results instantly and more dramatic results over time!" I have been using this since I got it and wow its amazing. My skin is super sensitive and I have different cleansers that I use when my skin is acting up but this is the one cleanser I can reach for morning or night to just cleanse and sooth my skin or to remove all of my makeup. Its so amazing I cannot get enough of it, I even have noticed that after just washing my face it looks much smoother and so soft and supple. After about a week my skin never went back to feeling dry it just stayed smooth, soft and supple. I am so happy with this cleanser it is a game changer for me and I can stick with this one and my bye bye makeup forever.

Ban Roll On Antiperspirant Deodorant

Summer is still in full swing and even if it wasn't I am a girl who wants her deodorant to work for her! I need it to of course keep my underarms dry and not leave a white stain on my shirt. I am so happy to be reviewing the Ban Roll On Antiperspirant Deodorant for you today. When I get something I like I will always share it with you even if it is talking about underarm sweat! I have used different deodarants from clear gels to sprays and even roll on ones but I had stepped away from them for a while now so I was excited to try out these from Ban.
This is a beauty bag must have deodorant for around $5.00 

The 3 Ban Roll On Antiperspirant Deodorants I tried were Regular, Fresh Powder and Fresh Cotton scents. The Regular scent was one I though I would like the least but I actually liked it a lot it is   light, clean fragrance with fresh floral notes for me this is a perfect everyday scent that doesn't over power any other fragrance I am wearing. The next one I wanted to try was Fresh Cotton and it was one I wanted to try the most. The scent is refreshing, clean fragrance with a floral heart and hint of fruit and I do love it. It is also great for everyday and for going to the gym, keeps you smelling fresh and dry. The final one is the Fresh Powder which I always associate with as a child like scent but this is a classic scent that I do like at times and it didn't over power or over whelm itself in just a powdery scent it was nice enough to use and didn't bother me. Over all, all three scents are great and the most important factor did it keep me dry? Yes it kept me dry thought out my long work days without needing reapplication it even kept my dry during my workouts of yoga, hot yoga, my runs in the hot summer sun and during cardio and toning workouts so I am very pleased with that. I also wore different colors of shirts and blouses and had not white deodorant staining which made me very happy! So the  Ban Roll On Antiperspirant Deodorant is a beauty bag must have with a 5 $$$$$ that gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA! It is available at most drug stores and mass retails stores for only $4.99 and that's a price I haven't paid for deodorant in long time (I just realized I have been paying way more whoa)

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer

Its official #BeautyBagDolls I have the BEST concealer on the market for anyone with oily or acne prone skin. As promised in my previous post if I got my hands on the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer I would review it and boy did I get my hands on it. This is available right now for purchase on It Cosmetics website as well as Ulta.com and coming in Fall 2017 you can find it at Ulta stores.
The best concealer on the market for any one with acne prone skin! It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer is my MUST HAVE! 

The It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer is available in 7 shades; Fair, Light, Medium, Medium Tan, Tan, Rich and Deep. In most concealers and including It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye I use medium however in this one the Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer I can use either the Light or Medium. The consistency is also different the Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer is not as thick. The ingredient deck is listed as being "infused with anti-aging peptides and hydrolyzed collagen, plus oil-absorbing zinc oxide, kaolin clay, witch hazel, tea tree, sulfur and a gentle AHA/BHA complex, it delivers flawless-looking results immediately and more transformative results over time." In can be worn alone or under makeup and my favorite way to combine it is with the Bye Bye Breakout Powder (review coming soon but I highly recommend) or with Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+  This is a game changing concealer for my skin I have acne prone skin I love being able to just dab this on my problem area knowing that yes it is concealing what bothers me but is TREATING it too! That is something I have never had with makeup before until It Cosmetics Bye Bye Breakout Treatment Concealer came into my life. When I use this and the powder I looked in the mirror and saw no imperfections it literally made me smile from ear to ear that I could go out of the house with what I view as a skin issue be erased out of view. This for me is beyond a 5 $$$$$ dollar sign product because it really helps dry out the breakout area after about 2 or 3 uses which helps heal the breakout quickly. I am very impressed and this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA! Along with a permanent place in my beauty bag.
