ybf Beauty

Happy Holidays Beauties,

As the year is winding down I have been hard at work and today I am brining you a huge review of something brand new to my blog. It is for the first time but not the last time being featured on my blog. It is a review of ybf Beauty products of different sorts. I must note that I received all of the products in this review complimentary of ybf Beauty. I must thank Stacey, Kate and Jennifer (along with anyone else I missed from the ybf Beauty Team) for their kindness and generosity for sending these superior beauty products for me to test. Find your new gorgeous makeup @ http://www.ybfbeauty.com/

ybf Beauty is a wonderful brand of cosmetics that make a woman feel beautiful and glamorous. Not only are the cosmetics themselves superior the packaging is over the top amazing! I received several pieces that are packaged in crystal cases that are so beautiful I literally had women stopping me in the ladies room when I touchup my lipstick/gloss asking me where I got it! The packing is superior and gorgeous but a little background information on the products before the review. ybf Beauty products are ALWAYS paraben free and cruelty free. They are also infused with Smart Active Complex and enriched with extracts from the earth. They are truly made with love keeping your skin in mind! ybf stands for your best friend and these products will be your best friend and you will meet people along the way when using ybf Beauty products that will become your friends for sure! Start shopping for superior beauty products in fabulous packing here @ http://www.ybfbeauty.com/
The perfect eyebrow and smoky eye in minutes!

The first thing I do in the morning when getting ready is put on my eyebrows. I have over tweezed them over the years and I need to add a little here and there! Well I have tried a lot of product over the years but none have compared to ybf Beauty Automatic Eye Brow Pencil in Universal Taupe shade.  Now I though I knew how to apply my eye brow pencils but I did use all tips that are included in a booklet included with every purchase. It really helps you figure out where your eye brows should begin and end. The ybf Beauty's Automatic Eye Brow Pencil is awesome! It really glides on smooth and fills in your less than perfect eye brows with EYE BROWS that look like actual hair! A brush is included on the other end of the pencil which makes it look like real hair. I haven't even mentioned the BEST part the ybf Beauty Automatic Brow Pencil is in a Universal Taupe shade that depending on how hard you press gets you YOUR PERFECT SHADE! Up to 22 Shades ladies! Anything from blonde to brunette all the way to red, silver and black haired ladies! I LOVE the ybf Beauty Automatic Eye Brow Pencil in Universal Taupe it get a 5 $$$$$ FOR ITS ABILITY TO WORK ON EVERYONE'S SHADE OF EYE BROW COLOR! IT MIMICS REAL HAIR AND IS EASY TO USE! IT IS PRICED RIGHT ONLY $12.00 AND LAST FOR SEVERAL MONTHS! IT STAYS ON UNTIL YOU TAKE IT OFF! ITS IN MY BEAUTY BAG AND SHOULD BE IN YOURS! Find it here @ http://www.ybfbeauty.com/extraordinary-eyes/automatic-eyebrow-pencil

The next thing I like to do after I have my brows on is my Eye Shadow! I have been using eye shadow since middle school which was to many years ago to make me want to even count! But I never had a Trio like this before! Stacey Schieffelin the creator of ybf Beauty has made is easy to get the perfect Smokey Eye I cannot even tell you it took me about 5 minutes to have both eyes done. The Trio that has made me LOVE the Smokey Eye look is called ybf Radiant Revital-Eyes Trio. It comes with  Revital-Eyes Eye Shadow- Smokin' Spirit (brown/black) Revital-Eyes Highlighter - Playful Pearl (pearlized) and Your Best Eye Liner - Onstage Onyx (black) I mean this everything you need (plus a little mascara and you are ready to go) It applies like a dream because the Revital-Eyes Eye Shadow is in a tube (like Lip Gloss) and just glides on. You can smudge with a brush to get how light or dark you want it or with your finger if your in a hurry! Next I grabbed the Your Best Eye Liner in Onstage Onyx shade and lined my inner eye at the water line and above my eyelashes but this was such a great experience than I have ever had with eye liner. It was soft and creamy! It didn't tug or pull and most importantly it didn't irate my sensitive eyes! the ybf Your Best Eye Liner really is the best! I love it in this trio. The third product in the this the ybf Radiant Revital-Eyes Trio is so AMAZING it came in an jeweled incrusted tube that was so beautiful but what was inside really takes the cake! It is a Playful Pearled Highlighter that was creamy and luxurious and really made my eyes look like I got an eye lift. I mean I smudge this above my eye brows under my eye brow to high light and a little in my tear duct and it look so FABULOUS! I even put a little in the middle of my lid after applying that amazing Smoking Spirit Eye Shadow and it really brought the whole look together! I am no longer afraid of doing a Smokey Eye because I got both eye done in three easy steps in about 5 minutes! If it isn't obvious that I am CRAZY IN LOVE with ybf's Beauty Radiant Revital-Eyes Trio then I Should tell you that it get a 5 $$$$$ FOR IT GET YOUR EYE MAKEUP DONE IN JUST 5 MINUTES. YOU WILL HAVE A SMOKEY EYE THAT IS WORTHY FOR A HOLIDAY OFFICE PARTY LIKE I DID OR AN EVERYDAY LIGHT SMOKEY EYE ALL WITH ONE KIT AND THREE EASY STEPS! IT MAKE A GREAT GIFT FOR A FRIEND OR FOR YOURSELF! THE PACKAGING IS EXQUISITE AND THE VALUE CANNOT BE BEAT!

From the top to the bottom on my hand. Lipstick w/gloss over it, in the middle just gloss on the bottom just the lipstick! I LOVE IT!

My favorite way to finish any look in the morning or to pick up my look half way to through the day is a swipe of lipstick. I feel that as long as my eyes are done and my lips are covered in a good lipstick or gloss I can face the world. The set that the ybf Beauty Team sent me is called Shine Time! lips. The lipstick is a satin spice shade that I ADORE! It is pigmented perfectly and can be worn alone without the gloss. Its creamy and luxe. It lasts for hours without DRYING OUT my lips or causing sensitivity (which I do experience with other brands) ybf Beauty is a SUPERIOR cosmetic brand that has great lipstick in an exquisite case! The deluxe SPARKLE case that both the lipstick and lip gloss comes in are BEAUTIFUL! Now the lip gloss which is also adored in sparkle comes in the Glow Pink Pout Polish Lip Gloss Shade!  Now I am a girl who loves a pink shade of lip gloss however I ADORE this one! It glides on so smooth is not stick and feels so creamy! Agian it can be worn alone or with the lipstick! This duo is a perfect team. The lip gloss has the perfect amount of shimmer in it without being too much! I am giving the ybf Beauty Shine Time! lips duo a 5 $$$$$ for its VALUE AND ITS ABILITY TO LAST ALL DAY WITHOUT DRYING OUT YOUR LIPS! IT FEELS LIKE A CREAMY NURISHING LIPSTICK AND GLOSS THAT CAN BE WORN TOGETHER OR ALONE! ITS AN AMAZING PRODUCT WITH FABULOUS PACKAGING!

Color Wow Root Touch Up & Color Wow One-Minute Transformation


I am so happy to bring to you a duel review today about two product from Color Wow that I received complimentary from Color Wow because I am apart of their WOW Network!


On the Left the Color Wow Root Cover Up and on the Right the Color Wow One-Minute Trasformaiton Styling Cream along with the mirror that lights up which helps with getting a perfect application!
It is very exciting to bring to you a duel review about two AMAZING products that I use almost daily since I received them! The first thing I tested out was the Color Wow Root Touch Up that I received complimentary from Color Wow in the Blonde Shade. It is available in 6 shades and is a mineral powder formula. It is so easy to apply with the duel ended brush that is provided in the compact. It is a temporary solution to cover grays and dark regrowth that truly lasts until you shampoo it out! I tested it out on some grays and regrowth and it worked wonderfully and flawless matched. The brush provided truly makes it so easy to apply and precision for me is key to make sure everything I want covered is covered.  I liked the blonde color because it helped give me some highlights however my hair is beginning to grow out and go it more natural hair color of light brown however the Color Wow Root Cover Up in Blonde still matched wonderfully! I like how you don't feel it on and you forget that its even in your hair until you wash it out! Color Wow also gave me an Amazing mirrior that lights up and helps me get a perfect application! This is instant results when you need them and I LOVE IT! Color Wow Root Cover Up can be purchase here @ http://www.colorwowhair.com/us/cw-landing


Next, Color Wow provided me complimentary to test out their Color Wow One-Minute Transformation styling cream and this truly did transform my hair in a flash! I tend to fly-aways and frizz and it happens to me often so when I read that this should take me about a minutes or so do I was excited to try it! The Color Wow One-Minute Transformation style cream is for anyone who doesn't have time to blow dry but wants to look like you did! It is non-oily, wax-free formula that really doesn't leave your hair looking greasy! I use it by applying about a nickel size amount maybe a little more I have long hair and I apply it throughout my DRY hair and I brush it through and it leaves it shiny and polished no more dreadful frizz!  Anyone looking for a professional blow out can use it by applying 15 second of heat with a blow dryer throughout unruly sections of your hair with a round brush.  I am never letting this out of my Beauty Bag It is A MUST HAVE! Buy yours today @ http://www.colorwowhair.com/us/products/one-minute-transformation-miracle-styling-cream.html


I am giving both the Color Wow Root Touch Up and Color Wow One-Minute Transformation Styling Cream A 5 $$$$$ FOR THEIR PERFORMACE! MY HAIR HAS NEVER LOOKED OR FELT BETTER! I GET HIGHLIGHTS AND GREY ROOTS COLORED LESS BECAUSE I USE THE COLOR WOW ROOT COVER UP! IT SAVE ME TIME AND MONEY AT THE SALON BECAUSE I CAN APPLY IT AND GO WITHOUT WORRY OF IT SWEATING OFF AT THE GYM OR RINSING AWAY IF I GET CAUGHT IN RAIN OR SNOW. IF YOU DONT HAVE THE TIME TO GET A BLOW OUT OR NEED TO CALM UNRULY FRIZZ THEN ALL YOU NEED IS MINUTE WITH COLOR WOW ONE-MINUTE STYLING CREAM. JUST A NICKLE SIZE ON DRY HAIR WITH POLISH YOUR HAIR AND MAKE IT SHINE GOT A FEW EXTRA SECONDS, A ROUND BRUSH AND A DRYER AND YOU CAN HAVE A BLOW DRY FINISH! I PERSONALLY LOVE THE COLOR WOW ONE-MINUTE TRANSFORMATION STYLE CREAM TO CALM MY FRIZZ AND FLY-AWAYS! I AM KEEPING THESE PRODUCTS BY MY SIDE THROUGHOUT THE HOLIDAY PARTY SEASON!

LumiMist

Happy Holidays Beauty Bag Readers!

I am brining you today something that is just perfect as a stocking stuffer! Not only is it a great gift its a wonderful product that has changed my skin! The LumiMist is a system that seems simple but it does so much. It Revives, replenishes and renews your skin with what seems like simple tap water however the tap water is sterilized by a platinum. I was honored to test this system out  and I am thrilled that the LumiMist company sent me the system complimentary. You can buy yours @ http://www.lumimist.com/

A little back round information about the LumiMist before I give you my thoughts. This is a rechargeable spray bottle system. It is powerful enough to cleanse up to 99.9% of dirt, oil and bacteria on your skin while it revitalizes and moisturizes your skin. The nanomist that is created after the water is sterilized in just 30 seconds helps the "Nano Hydrogen Sterilized water deeply penetrate the pores of your skin to effectively remove impurities, while also providing oxygen to revive, replenish and renew your complexion." For more information about the LumiMist in their words go to @ http://www.lumimist.com/
The LumiMist comes beautifully packaged with instructions and ready for gift giving! Also in this photo the water is being sterilized in just 30 seconds!

Now as soon as I read about the LumiMist I was very interested and when I read that it helps keep my skin super clean in an easy way I was curious. They state that your skin with be radiant and help keep you acne free. I thought that sterilizing your water with this bottle and then misting it on my face was simple enough and so  I have been using this for a few weeks now! After just one use you I can honestly say I felt and SAW a difference in my skin!  I mean it was instant! After filling the bottle about 80% full and shaking a little as it sterilized the water for 30 seconds I just began to spritz it across my face! After my skin absorbed it and I look in the mirror my face look brighter and clearer! After just two weeks of use my skin was amazing! It had less acne breakouts and the scars from previous acne breakouts had lightened! I learned that normal water that we cleanse our skin with is too big penetrate pores leaving build-up behind. The Nano Hydrogen Sterlized Water that the LumiMist provides penetrates deep into the skin to remove dirt and impurities and that makes a huge difference in your skin! Buy yours today for you and as a gift @ http://www.lumimist.com/

I give the LumiMist a 5 $$$$$ for IT ABILITY TO REDUCE ACNE BREAKOUTS AND BRIGHTEN SKIN WITHIN DAYS OF USING IT! ITS ALSO VERY AFFORDABLE TO PURCHASE AND KEEP AT HOME FOR DAILY USE INSTEAD OF GOING TO A SPA FOR TREATMENTS THAT COULD COST UPWARDS OF $400 A YEAR! THIS LUMIMIST WILL COST YOU $149.95 ONE TIME AND LAST YOU 3-4 YEARS! THIS IS A AMAZING PRODUCT THAT WITHOUT A DOUBT MADE A DIFFERENCE IN MY SKIN AND IT SOMETHING I WILL CONTINUE TO USE DAILY AND I WILL HAVE IT IN MY BEAUTY BAG FOR YEARS TO COME!

Kleenex Brand Tissues

Hello Beauty Bag Readers,

Cold and Flu season is here and I know its something we don't like to talk about but I am a member of www.crowdtap.com and they have kindly provided me with two differnet kinds of Kleenex Brand tissues to test out and I LOVE them so I of course want to share it with you!

The first one they provided me was Kleenex anti-viral tissues  and they very useful for many different reasons since I did have a cold. The tissues inside are a three ply 68 count facial tissues that come in handy for all sorts of situations and when you have a cold it is nice to have the protection of three ply and the fact that they kill 99.9% of cold and flu virus! These are  a winner in my book because no one got since my house!

I received these two boxes of Kleenex Brand Tissues for free from www.crowdtap.com because I am a member of the Kleenex Brand Believers.

The second one I received as a free sample product from www.crowdtap.com was the Kleenex lotion tissues. These are so soft and gentle you will forget that your nose is sore and they are even soft enough to use on you baby like I did when she had the sniffles! They are a two ply 75 count tissue that sooth your nose and I love them!


 I love them they are soft and gentle on your delicate face so for me I GIVE BOTH THE KLEENEX ANTI VIRAL AND KLEENEX LOTION FACIAL TISSUES A 5 $$$$$ FOR QAULITY AND VALUE!

Note: My opinion is 100% my own!

Dollie Hair Extensions- 20 inch Clip In Hair Extensions Deluxe Set in Light Natural Brown

Hello to all My Beauty Bag Readers!

I am so ecstatic to bring to you something very special! It also a first on my blog not because its extensions! Its because these are the BEST extensions EVER that I have featured. They were sent to me complimentary for testing purposes from the Dollie Hair Extension company themselves. Dollie Hair Extensions are the best high quality extensions because they are 100% Remy Human Hair. Clip in Extensions start at just $99.00. The ones I received from Dollie Hair Extensions were the 20 inch Clip In Hair Extensions Deluxe Set in the Light Natural Brown Shade which costs $179.00  you can find these @ http://www.dolliehairextensions.com.au/collections/20-clip-in-hair-extensions-deluxe-set/products/20-clip-in-hair-extensions-deluxe-set-6-light-natural-brown
The Dollie Hair Extension 20 Inch Clip in hair extensions Deluxe set in Light Natural Brown will arrive at your door in Wonderful packaging!

Receiving these Dollie Hair Extensions have changed how I ever felt about extensions because the quality of 100% Remy Human Hair does not even compare to the synthetic extensions. Each are in a category of their own! When I took these out of the packaging I could immediately see how amazing they are. The color quality was a superior match it was as if  I was looking at my own hair I could not believe my eyes. Then came how soft and luxurious the hair extensions are! Of course the ultimate test is clipping them in and how they wear when you use them for a long day. To get your 20 inch Clip In Hair Extension n the Deluxe Set go to http://www.dolliehairextensions.com.au/collections/20-clip-in-hair-extensions-deluxe-set
You will recieve One 8" wide piece, One 7" wide piece, One 6" wide piece and Two 3.5" wide pieces.

I decided to test them out on a day that I had some extra time to get ready in the morning just because this was my first time using 100% Remy Hair. I have long hair however I struggle with volume and thickness. I have long thin hair that lack volume so I wanted to get that from extensions. Dollie Hair Extensions gave me and more! I got confidence back!  There are five pieces and I started with the One 8 inch wide piece all the way in the back of my head then I placed One 7 inch wide piece in the about the center and it blended flawlessly with my hair color and you could not see the clips at all. At that point I didn't need the One 6 inch wide piece but I did use the two 3.5 inch wide pieces on either side of my head to frame my face and add layers. I look AMAZING after just using 4 pieces! They were comfortable, undetectable and gave me the VOLUME  I had longed for without teasing or spray my hair! My hair used to take me at least thirty minutes to do but with the Dollie Hair Extension I now get my hair done in about 8 minutes! I didn't need the extra time at all!! To find your perfect Dollie Hair Extension @ http://www.dolliehairextensions.com.au/

In all honesty and full discourse like always my Beauty Bag Readers I am going to rate these Dollie Hair Extensions however they are off my chart! That is how much I love them! THEY GET A 5 $$$$$ FOR THE FACT THAT THEY ARE HIGHEST QUALITY HAIR EXTENSION I HAVE EVER FEATURED! THEY ARE 100% REMY HUMAN HAIR AND THEY ARE THE BEST! YOU CLIP THEM IN AND YOU WILL FORGET THAT THEY ARE THERE! IT FEELS JUST LIKE YOUR OWN HAIR IF NOT BETTER! THE COLOR MATCH IS FLAWLESS! YOU TAKE CARE OF THE DOLLIE HAIR EXTENSTION JUST LIKE REAL HAIR SHAMPOO AND STYLING IS A BREEZE! WHEN I AM ASKED WHAT HAIR EXTENSIONS I USE AND RECOMEND I SAY DOLLIE HAIR EXTENTIONS ARE IN MY BEAUTY BAG AND ALWAYS WILL BE!

EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA:
I don't do this often and for all of my reviews but the Dollie Hair Extensions deserve the EXRA LOVE because of the quality! They feel great and make you look great.

I have been blessed again to be able to review for you another product from IT Cosmetics that I received complimentary from IT Cosmetics. I was honored to test and review for all of you. The IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Celebration Edition. This is a limited-edition holiday eye shadow palette. It contains 14 luxe anti-aging silk infused eye shadow that are all MATTE but can transform  to a pearl shade when you tap your brush into the Transforming Ombre Radiance Ribbon shadow that is included in the palette. This is the best of both worlds type of eye shadow palette it has everything you need in one place. You can find yours @ http://www.itcosmetics.com/limited-edition-naturally-pretty-celebration-matte-luxe-transforming-eyeshadow-palette

I personally fell in love with it after just one use of five of the shades. I used the shade playfully named Gingerbread on my eyelid then on the outer corner I smudged some Toasty to create depth with a dash of the Spice shadow to make it look like  different kind of smokey eye. I also used Sugar Plum wet to line my eyes and Snow Angel on my brow bone and inner corner. Now this didn't take me more than 3 minutes to achieve even thought I used 5 shades because the formulation of these eye shadows are so luxurious. It glides right on without tugging or pulling my eyelids shows up with just one swipe and does not crease even after wearing it all day long. I am so happy that IT Cosmetics includes eyelid loving ingredient's like peptides, collagen, silk and antioxidant because it make me comfortable using it and giving this Naturally Pretty Celebration Edition to every lady on my Holiday Gift list including my Mom who has super sensitive eyes. In fact I purchased 6 of these for all the special ladies on my list as stocking stuffers but I gave it to my mom early and she was THRILLED she fell in love with it after just one use because it didn't settle in  fine lines around her eyes because it didn't travel and it didn't irate her sensitive eyes either. She also like me didn't use an extra step (eye primer) before applying the IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Celebration Edition Eye Shadow Palette. The fact that you have 14 shades plus the Transforming Ombre Radiance Ribbon which changes any one of the matte colors to a Pearl shade is AMAZING! Go to http://www.itcosmetics.com/limited-edition-naturally-pretty-celebration-matte-luxe-transforming-eyeshadow-palette
I took this photo trying to specifically t o display the beautiful shades that are included in this IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Celebration Matte Eye Shadow in the Holiday Limited Edition Palette

I have struggled to find a Matte shadow on the market until now but the option to got pearl is just WONDERFUL when going to that holiday office party, for New Years, a date or a girls night out. I am so in love with having the OPTION to go pearl that I have been telling everyone I meet that I finally found MATTE Eye Shadow!  IT Cosmetics has transformed eye shadow to the next level! It is perfect for women of all ages and it is perfect for everyday use and special enough for an event! Truly innovative and LIFE CHANGING! You can spend 3 minutes using five different shades to create a real fancy look or a minute an a half for a quick and easy look! You more options that you can count because they can be layered, used wet or dry and they all transform from matte to pearl with a swipe of the ombre  radiance ribbon! This LIMITED EDITION PALETTE costs only $42.00 @ http://www.itcosmetics.com/limited-edition-naturally-pretty-celebration-matte-luxe-transforming-eyeshadow-palette

In case it isn't already obvious I give the IT Cosmetics NATURALLY PRETTY CELEBRATION EDITION MATTE LUXE TRANSFORMING EYE SHADOW PALETTE GETS A 5 $$$$$ FOR BEING A CREAMY, HIGHLY PIGMENTED SHADOW THAT DOES NOT TUG WHEN YOU APPLY IT. IT DOESN'T IRRIATE SENSTIVE EYES AND HAS EYE LID LOVING INGREDIANTS LIKE PEPTIDES, COLLAGEN, SILK AND ANTIOXIDANTS. MY FAVORITE PART IS THAT THEY ARE MATTE UNLESS YOU CHOOSE TO USE THE TRANSFORMING  OMBRE RADIANCE RIBBON SHADE! THE IT Cosmetics NATURALLY PRETTY CELEBRATION EYE SHADOW IS AMAZING! ITS VALUE IS UNBEATABLE FOR 14 SHADES OF EYE SHADOW AND THEY ARE HIGHT PERFORMANCE! THEY WONT COME OFF UNTIL YOU TAKE THEM OFF AND THEY NEVER CREASE OR SETTLE!

Jillian Wright Skincare

Hello Beauty Bag Readers,

Today I am bringing you 2 very special products from Jillian Wright Skincare. I was lucky enough to speak with Jillian herself and talk to her about my skin. After letting her know my struggles with acne and looking at all the wonderful products she has in her skincare line I knew she would agree with me when I said that the Jillian Wright Breakout Blocker Clarifying Serum and the Jillian Wright Mattefying Moisture Lotion. Both products where sent to complimentary for testing and I have never looked back at anything else since!  Find yours @ http://jillianwrightskincare.com/line/skincare/

A little background information about Jillian Wright Skincare before I get into my review. The approach Jillian Wright takes is different than most companies she formulates her products organically using "of earth" ingredient's. There are no fillers, toxic ingredients or colorants. The Jillian Wright Skincare line is wonderful it also is paraben-free, phthalate-free and gluten-free. I am thrilled about the ingredients in the Jillian Wright Skincare because I have very sensitive skin that is acne prone so these natural ingredients put me at ease when I went to try it. I must also mention that her packaging of these products is something I never heard of before! The boxes it comes in is something you plant later! Yes you tear up the box and plant it and a flower grows! I cannot wait to plant mine in the early spring! Find out more about Plantable Packaging @ http://jillianwrightskincare.com/plantable-packaging/

Now what you all have been waiting for is the review! I first cleanse my face and pat it dry then the first thing I grabbed was the Jillian Wright Skincare Breakout Blocker Clarifying Serum. I used the dropper to dispense about a dime size and it was enough for my entire face. It went on easily and my skin drank it in. It was not oily or greasy it was very milky like in the consistency and  I love it! My skin absorbed it in less than 20 seconds and it felt smooth. It didn't cause me any irritation and it reduced my redness in my cheeks and chin area that usually doesn't ever go away! (unless I put on concealer) The Breakout Blocking Clarifying Serum calmed any redness in about thirty minutes which really made me happy! I used it every night and my redness didn't return not even in the morning! I also didn't feel oily which is usually a problem for me. I found this to be the best serum I had ever used on my sensitive acne prone skin. The key ingredient are Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract, Lactobacillus Ferment, Planktonic Exopolysaccharide 5, Phytosphingosine, Hydroxycinnamic Acid, Sepiwhite and Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil. It is worth trying if you have my skin type. You can find it @ http://jillianwrightskincare.com/product/skincare/breakout-blocker-serum/
From Left to Right is The Jillian Skincare Breakout Blocking Clarifying Sermum and the Mattefying Moisture Lotion! I love it! The best little duo in my Beauty Bag right now!!

In the evening I also would follow up with the Jillian Wright Mattefying Moisture Lotion I would wait about 20 minutes because I like to let my serum absorb really well and I use an eye cream and dry my hair in between that time. However when I opened the jar of Mattefying Moisture Lotion I immediately knew it was different in a good way. It was thick but no oily, I knew it would moisturize my skin but over power it causing a breakout and I was right! After applying it my skin was moisturized and matte. There was no greasy residue like other moisturizers and after just a five days of using it my skin glowed more than ever and I didn't need to apply acne treatments because I didn't break out! After just two and half weeks on the Serum and Moisturizer regiment my acne scars even lightened up! I felt confidant enough to go out for a run with out any makeup on just my Jillian Wright Skincare and some SPF! The key ingrediants in the Jillian Wright MAtterfying Moisture Lotion is Dermasyr (Syringa Vulgaris (Lilac Stem Cells) Leaf Cell Culture Extract), Niacinamide, Montmorillonite and this ingredients are AMAZING!

I am giving both Jillian Wright Skincare Breakout Blocker Clarifying Serum and the Mattefying Moisture Lotion a 5 $$$$$ BECAUSE AFTER I BEGAN TO USE THESE TWO PRODUCTS I SAW A DIFFERENCE IN MY SKIN! IT WAS LESS OILY AND SMOOTHER WITH A MAJOR REDUCTION IN HOW MANY ACNE BREAKOUTS I WOULD GET! IT HELPS MATTEFY MY SKIN AND HAVING SHINE REDUCTION IS A PLUS BECAUSE I APPLY LESS POWDER MAKEUP. THE SERUM IN SMOOTH AND MILKY AND ABSORBS QUICKLY WHILE THE MOISTURIZER IS NUTRURING AND MOISTURIZING WITHOUT CLOGGING MY PORES!

New Blog Feature(First time ever)

Hair2wear

Hello Hello Beauty Bag Reader,

I have some more AMAZING products for you. This is a double review that is coming from Hair2wear. I received two beautiful pieces (in the medium brown shade) of hair extension's complimentary of Hair2wear. You can find which one are the right fit for you here @ https://www.hair2wear.com/ and to find out how I feel read on.

My hair to me is one of my obsessions! There are two things I am obsessed with my hair and my nails! For me I can never get enough volume in my hair no matter how much I spray and tease it never has enough volume. I have been playing extensions and one kind of extensions I have been afraid of is bangs or a side swept bang. I had bangs as a little girl and young teenager and they day I began growing them out and got rid of them completely was the best day ever until they came back into style. I was afraid to cut them and so I never did! Now I have discovered the beauty of Hair2wear Full-Sweeping Side Fringe! They are wonderful and available in 11 colors for only $24.00! I will never get my hair cut to get bangs when Hair2wear exists! THANK YOU to the Christie Brinkley Collection! They are the easiest to use. You are three clips away from having gorgeous Full-Sweeping Side Fringe that is commitment free! They so are comfortable you will not feel that they are in your hair. I just parted my hair the way I wanted them and clipped them in, it took me less than a minute and I had an all new look! You can have your new look here @ https://www.hair2wear.com/extensions/full-sweeping-side-fringe-5
These are the BEST non committing Bangs I have ever had!

The second extension I got I was so excited about for two reasons it would not only add volume to my hair but a layer and dimension that my hair needed! It is the Hair2wear 16 inch Hair Extension from the Christie Brinkley Collection. These extension's are very affordable at $49.00 and available in 11 shades as well.  They are 16 inch extensions so when I saw that they only had three clips I was nervous that they would not hold. My nerves where eased when I styled my hair. I curled them placed my Hair2wear Full-Sweeping Side Fringe which look great and then I parted my hair in the back and clipped in the 16 inch extension and it was so COMFORTABLE and easy to do. Three clips and I was done. My hair had added volume and dimension in color that quickly! It stayed in and didn't bother me at all! I go so many compliments at a dinner party. No one had a clue I didn't cut my hair and get bangs or that I had any extensions in my hair at all. I guess after they read this review my secret will be out but I have to tell everyone about the Hair2wear line it is AMAZING. Find which 16 inch extension is right for you @ https://www.hair2wear.com/extensions/16-hair-extension-5
A lot of curl and volume with just one extension that is comfortable!

I am a huge LOVER of the Full Sweeping Side Fringe and the 16 inch Hair Extension and I GIVE THEM BOTH A 5 $$$$$ FOR QUALITY, EASE OF USE, ADDTIONAL VOLUME/LENGTH & CONFIDANCE IT GIVES YOU NO MATTER WHAT YOUR OWN NATURAL HAIR LACKS! I HAVE NEVER TRIED A BANGS EXTENSIONS UNTIL NOW AND I AM ADDICTED TO THE LOOK AND FEEL OF THESE! THE NATURAL CURL IS EASY TO MATCH WHEN STYING YOUR OWN HAIR AND THE EASE OF USEING THESE EXTENSIONS IS UBEATABLE! I THOUGHT I WOULD ONLY USE THEM FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS BUT THEY ARE NOW APPART OF MY HAIR STYLING STAPLE! (LIKE HAIRSPRAY) THESE ARE NOT ONLY A STAPLE BUT A MUST HAVE FOR ANYONE WHO LOVE THEIR HAIR! IN MY BEAUTY BAG I WILL ALWAY HAVE HAIR2WEAR EXTENSIONS! FOR ME THESE HAVE BEEN A STYLE CHANGING ADDITION TO MY ROUTINE!

THANK YOUR Hair2wear for making hair extensions easy and this holiday party season easy with hair that is styled and gorgeous!
