Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Soothing Loiton

Bonjour My Beauty Bag Readers,

Today I am bringing you something so special that I could hardly wait to write this blog post. I used this for a while just to make sure I love it but it was hard not to share after just two uses! I received a bottle of Le Couvent de Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion directly from the Le Couven de Minimes Company for testing purposes and I am now in LOVE with this product! You can purchase it from them @ http://usa.lecouventdesminimes.com/leg-soothing-lotion-to-reactivate-micro-circulation-and-refresh-tired-legs-le-couvent-des-minimes,4,1,209,1338.htm#s=864 and let me tell you the should sell it by gallon!

You are probably now asking WHY DO I LOVE THIS SO MUCH? Well all summer long I have shaved faithfully everyday sometimes twice a day just to makes sure that my legs where smooth and perfect when wearing skirts, shorts and mini dresses! I also used sunscreen everyday and extra when spending time at beach but all of that shaving and sun exposure has dried out my legs and made them look flakey and with fall here I knew it was time to repair the damage. When this bottle of Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Smoothing Lotion arrived at my doorstep complimentary of the company I was excited. I applied after shaving and showering. Their directions state to "apply to legs each day, gently massaging from the sole of the feet to the top of the thighs." So on the first day and each day after that I applied this luxurious Leg Soothing Lotion with a smile on my face because it is AMAZING! It smell like a mint and lemon had a baby and it was the Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Smoothing Lotion! The scent is just so good you never want it to go away. It fills the room at first and after you have applied to your legs it slowly but surely fades to this light refreshing scent that lingers gingerly!
Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion is a Beauty Bag Must HAVE! Photo taken before it was completely empty! Ordering it ASAP!

Once I got past the scent day after day I saw result after just the second application. My legs where silky smooth and that had this glow to them that no other lotion has ever given me! I was upset I didn't have this when I was wearing the short shorts, skirts and dresses all summer because this made my legs look like they where lit from within! No joke my legs look like the ladies who are walking the red carpet at the Emmy Awards! I mean I never had my legs feel so soft and MOISTURIZED after just one layer of the Le Couvent de Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion! There was no need for multiple layers because your legs just felt so good! The formula is so lightweight that your skin will absorb it in less than 30 seconds!   

I am giving the LE COUVENT DES MINIMES LEG SOOTHING LOTION A RENOUNDING 5 $$$$$ FOR IT ABILITY TO MAKE MY LEGS SOFT, SUPPLE AND GLOW WITH JUST A QUICK APPLICATION EVERY NIGHT! THE GRAPESEED OIL & SHEA BUTTER NOURISH AND REPAIR WHILE THE IVY, RED VINE, CYPRESS & SPEARMINT HELP IMPROVE MICROCIRCULATION. WHILE THE ALPINE MIND, LEMON AND MAY CHANGE ESSENCES ARE A REFRESHING SCENT THAT LINGER IN YOUR NOSE AND YOU SMILE! THIS IS A MUST HAVE IN MY BEAUTY BAG!

The Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion is available on their website @  http://usa.lecouventdesminimes.com/ for $25.00!

FRESH KIDZ

Hello Beauty Bag Mom's, Dads and anyone who is raising a Child

I am bringing you something VERY SPECIAL today from my Beauty Bag! I want to first say that this product is NOT just for parents or guardian's of Girls it is also for Boy so keep reading on. I got in contact with a WONDERFUL company called Keep It Kind and this company makes deodorant aimed at children ages 8-14. I received this deodorant for free for testing purposes and it has changed EVERYTHING I ever thought about deodorant! Visit their website for a store located near you @ http://www.wekeepitkind.com/us/

I got these before my girls got home from school so I opened it and read the label and it said No Aluminum, No Parabens and No Alcohol. As a parent I was thrilled to see that this deodorant was safe. I also read it was dermatologically tested  and suitable for all skin types. I was also thrilled that doing the laundry would be easy because it would not stain the kids tops! I smelled it and I was happy that it wasn't too strong but not weak either! It has sweet floral smell that is not overpowering its  just right!

The ultimate test was what the girls thought and they LOVED the smell. They loved that it was a roll on and that it was easy to put on wait a few seconds get dressed and start their day. The ultimate test came for me was if it lasted ALL DAY!  They each go to school have a gym class and then head to an after school physical activity. Gymnastics, dance and cheerleading to name a one for each. With other deodorants my girls where reapplying after gym class at school and before and after each of their activities but with FRESH KIDZ I have to say they didn't even reapply once because they where dry and they said it smelled great! I was thrilled that they love it and that the scent didn't wear off! Children at that age are very particular about what scents they like and this one was a real winner! To get three girls with three different personalities to all like the FRESH KIDZ deodorant is a miracle in itself! I am thrilled!
The perfect deodorant for kids that parents can approve! Fresh Kidz is GREAT!

The one FRESH KIDZ for boys I received from Keep It Kind went to my nephew who plays football! Of course practice is after a full day of school which includes gym glass so he applies his deodorant every morning and wont leave home without one.  I asked him to really put this to the test and try his hardest not to reapply it after gym class or before or after football practice just to really test it out for his auntie and he said he would. He told me that while it worked really well for him after gym class he wanted to reapply it before foot ball practice but he didn't. He told me he stayed dry through the day after gym and personally didn't need to reapply until after football practice however he didn't (for me) He said the scent was still there and that he like it a lot and that he didn't seem to need to apply more cologne through the day because his deodorant smelled really good and made him feel confidant! He also loved that it smelled manly and not like a little kid! He did the one day of no reapplying test for me and he approved however his personal preference was to reapply after practice for his own happiness and I am as well as his mom are fine with it because the FRESH KIDZ for boy has NO Aluminum, NO Parabons and NO Alcohol in it!

If it is not obvious yet I give the FRESH KIDZ DEODRANT FOR GIRLS AND BOYS A 5 $$$$$ IN MY KID TESTED MOTHER APPROVED BEAUTY BAG FULL OF GOODIES! THIS IS ONE PRODUCT I DONT WORRY ABOUT MY KIDS USING! THE SCENT IS NOT TOO MUCH FOR A YOUNGER CHILD AND IT IS NOT TOO LITTLE! IT GIVES THEM THE CONFIDANCE THAT THEY  CAN GO TO AN AFTER SCHOOL SPORT SMELLING GOOD AFTER A LONG DAY AT SCHOOL WITHOUT THE HARSH ALCOHOLS, PARABENS AND ALUMINUMS THAT OTHER DEODARANTS HAVE THAT WORRY PARENTS! I HAVE ALREADY REPURCHSED FRESH KIDZ FOR MY KIDS AND WILL CONTINUE TO DO SO!

Chapstick Hydration Lock Moisturize and Renew

Hello Beauty Bag Beauties,

I just tried the latest from the Chapstick. I received it from www.Smiley360.com  for testing purposes as a product sample. I have used it for over a week now and it is by far the  BEST Chapstick yet.  It is brand new from the Chapstick brand and it called Chapstick Hydration Lock. It is two formulas in one stick. It is duel ended. One side has a moisturize formula which tastes like soft vanilla and the other end is a renew formula which tastes like botanical medley. It glides on clear, feels smooth and not tacky. The taste is not over powering and after its on your lips for just a few minutes you can apply a lipstick gloss or whatever you like on top with no problems. You can wear it alone and it lasts about four hours before you feel the need to apply more. I love that it is an advanced anti-aging formula too! I love to apply a lip balm on my way home from work when lip glosses, stains and lipsticks are no longer needed or right before bed to renew your lips while you sleep.

I love this new Chapstick!


This lip balm is a WINNER in my book and I GIVE THE CHAPSTICK HYDRATION LOCK MOISTURIZE AND RENEW A  5 $$$$$. The benfits of healthy, beautiful and tasty lips are a must have in your Beauty Bag!

Note: I received the Chapstick Hydration Lock Moisture and Renew as a free product sample from www.smiley360.com I am speaking from personal experience and my thoughts are my own!

Skintimate Signature Scents Moisturizing Shave Gel in Madarin Burst

Aloha Beauty Bag Beauties,

I am here to bring you a product that I received complimentary for testing purposes from a company called Crowdtap. The website is http://home.crowdtap.com/ and if you sign up and answer survey questions you to can be sent products to test like the bottle of Skintimate Shave Gel I received. Now I got the disclaimer out of the way I can tell you all about the Skintimate Signature Scents Shave Gel in Mandarin Burst scent.

I was not shaving my legs for a while due to the fact that I was using other methods for hair removal but I decided to give this a try and host a little shave party with 8 of Best Girlfriends to test this out. I had them over and told them not to shave for a day. When they arrived I provided everything we would need to shave which included the Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel. We all did our thing and shaved. The first thing you notice of course is the scent it SMELLS AMAZING! It honestly relaxes you and makes your feel like you are on vacation while shaving your legs. The girls testing this out where so happy to try but they were even happier that it worked!

Not one of nicked or cut ourselves while using the Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel. It has Vitamin E and Olive Butter which helps moisturize you legs while you shave! Everyone's legs where silky-smooth and no one needed to moisturize with lotion after shaving because we had dry or irritated legs like with other so called shave gels. All the ladies were super impressed and they all wanted to sneak the Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel home with them!


A photo of one of the Happy Party Goer from the Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel!


If it is not obvious by now I GIVE THE SKINTIMATE MANDARIN BURST SHAVE GEL A 5 $$$$$ FOR THE FACTS THAT IT IS AN AFFORDABLE AND COMFORTABLE WAY TO REMOVE UNWANTED HAIR! IT SMELLS WONDERFUL, MAKES YOUR LEGS FEEL LIKE SILK AND PROTECTS YOUR LEGS FROM NICKS & CUTS. THE ADDED VITAMINS AND CONDITIONERS KEEP YOUR LEGS MOISTURIZED WHICH IS A MUST WHEN SHAVING!

So when I am asked what I use when I shave I say SKINTIMATE MANDARIN BURST SHAVE GEL!

Note: I received this bottle of Skintimate Mandarin Burst Shave Gel has a free product sample  from @ http://home.crowdtap.com/  however my opinions are my own!

emjoi eRase e60

Hello Beauty Bag Readers,

Today I am bringing you something really special. It is the Emjoi Erase e60. I received it complimentary of  Emjoi for testing and reviewing. My thoughts are my own and if you would like to an Emjoi Erase e60 of your own after reading my experice links to their website will be at the end of my review.

Now that I took care of the disclaimer we can get to the review. Let me start by saying I have never used and epilator before in my life so yes I was nervous but the thought of not having to shave for up to six weeks made me more curious than scared. The Emjoi I was sent is eRase e60 and it has 60 tweezer discs that removes hair in less time (BONUS who has extra time) It does legs, underarms, face and bikini areas. It also comes with a sensitive cover for delicate areas like your face. It has dual opposed heads which make it more comfortable and it removes hair from the root (I know sounds scary) but with two speeds and the fact that it can remove hair as short as 0.3mm made me feel comfortable. Keep in mind it is electrically operated (corded) so it wont run out of battery power in the middle of a session. This is a new model from Emjoi and they have been around doing this for a very long time so I am glad I could use this trusted brand as my first epilator.
The Entire Emjoi eRase e60 Kit $79.95 I received it complimentary for testing purposes. You can purchase yours @ http://emjoi.com/AP-14EB/emjoi-erase-e60


Now I know what you all are wondering did it work and did it hurt? Well IT WORKS! I did it on one leg where the hair on my legs was a little longer because I was unsure if I should have it to short it wouldn't work then on the other leg I experimented and had the hair two days out. I prefer the two day out. It did not hurt  all on the longer hair it hurt a pinch literally not bad at all and I don't like pain. Its nothing like waxing because your not ripping your skin with the Emjoi Erase e60 your just pulling the hair and the hair is what you want gone so why would you rip at your skin? I sure will never ever wax again after using a virtually painless Emjoi Erase e60 that did keep my leg hair free for 3 and half weeks. After about three weeks I used it again and they were still smooth my but in order to maintain the smooth I decided to use the Emjoi eRase e60 before the 6 week mark and this way I experienced NO PAIN after another treatment in 4 weeks or so I do only expect to use the Emjoi eRase e60 every 6-8 weeks from what I can see with my hair growth. If anything changes I WILL UPDATE you!

I do have tips to give you. Do shower before you epilate it helps open up your pores and if you exfoliate that even better it will make your skin soft and supple so removing the hair will be as pain free as possible. Everyone has different thresholds for pain and this one is for me on a scale of 1-5 a 1.5. It is nothing but I will note my threshold is high. I must also let you all know that I have super sensitive skin and the Emjoi eRase e60 epilator did not irate my skin at all. It just plucked the hairs right out leaving my skin smooth and silky. Remember to use this on dry skin that is free of any body lotions and fresh out of the shower works best! I did use it on the low speed setting so far and will start probably stick  to that per the Emjoi guides suggestion for sensitive skin. High is recommended for course hair. I used the sensitive cover attachment when removing that little peach fuzz hair you get on the side of your face and that did wonders for my face. I have a better and smoother makeup application now!
Those are the 30 Tweezers working in this AMAZING epilator to keep you hair free for 6 weeks!

If you haven't yet figured it out yet Beauty Bag Readers I LOVE the Emjoi eRase e60 EPILATOR AND I GIVE IT A 5 $$$$$ ON IT ABILITY TO REMOVE HAIR ON YOUR LEGS, FACE, BIKINI LINE & UNDERARMS WITH LITTLE PAIN (depending on how you tolerate pain of course for some it may feel like waxing) HOWEVER THE RESULTS ARE WHAT IMPRESSED ME MOST! I HAD SMOOTH LEGS FOR THREE WEEKS! I MEAN THREE GLORIUS WEEKS IN WHICH I DID NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HAIR ON MY LEGS OR UNDERARMS! I COULD WEAR SHORTS, SKIRTS, DRESSES AND SLEVELESS SHIRTS WITHOUT A CARE IN THE WORLD! FOR ME YOU CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS BUT THE EMJOI ERASE E60 BRINGS JOY TO ME WHEN I DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT SHAVING!! I LOVE IT! IT IS PRICED REASONABLY TOO!

WHEN I AM ASKED WHAT DO YOU REMOVE UNWANTED HAIR WITH? I say my Beauty Bag is armed with the EMJOI ERASE e60

The Emjoi eRase e60 is in my Beauty Bag and it should be in yours too!
