Lauren B. Beauty

Get your top ten ready for the 4th of July holiday #BeautyBagDolls with Lauren B. Beauty Nail Polish. The colors are inspired by Los Angeles and are 5Free, Vegan Friendly and Made in the USA. I have the shade Laurel Canyon Lover, Santa Monica Shutters and PCH. I am thrilled that they are free of formaldehyde, DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin or camphor. Lauren B. Beauty nail polish is something I fell in love with after just one stroke across my nails.  To shop Lauren B. Beauty click here.
Lauren B. Beauty has nail polishes that are beauty bag must! 

After these arrived I could not wait to get the polish I had on and as I though about the week ahead I decided to try Santa Monica Shutters first. This shade is described as "clean and fresh with a touch of translucence, this milky, off-white shade creates the best first-snowfall effect: one coat makes your nails look healthy and glowing; two coats lend them a pearly gleam." I absolutely agree with this description and opted for two coats. This is such a beautiful shade of nail polish and looks amazing on my nails. The shade of off white matched everything I wore and was going to wear for the rest of the week.  I also have to mention that they did not chip at all. The application process was the easiest I have ever experienced it glided on smoothly and didn't streak like most. I found this with all three shades which is such a pleasant surprise. The color pigments are true the PCH shade is described as "a stunning freshness of opaque cobalt blue. Tinged with purple undertones, it’s festive and on-trend and instantly lifts your mood." I must admit I my mood was lifted each and every time I look down at my toe nails. I also got lost of compliments and people asking me what shade of blue that I was wearing and who did my finger nails because the white was so perfect and not chipped! The final color was Laurel Canyon Lover which is  a "perfect balance between true red and burgundy, this shade looks sexy, festive and modern all at once" I must admit red is color I do not use often in the summer time until now.  This is a true red and burgundy as described  and looked very classy I wore it on my finger nails to work and they were a hit. My co-workers again wanted to know who did my nails. I am so thrilled with Lauren B. Beauty. The nail polish is superior and I don't need to even bother with a top coat which makes doing your own nails a breeze. Just apply this polish wait about a minute or two and you have perfect nails. Second coat is optional and this is a streak free formula!  This is truly a beauty bag must and the formula is without a doubt a 5 $$$$$ so of course this gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

These are two unique masks that will treat your skin to a wonderful spa experience. Shop Biobelle to purchase.
A face mask that is a #primer its just amazing and the mask that named #decadence these two will be staples in your beauty bag like they are in mine! 

The #decadence Biobelle Facial Mask is described as a mask that "instantly plump and vitalize to leave you looking well rested. Let the repairing and hydrating ingredients do their job as you take a journey to the softest, clearest skin you’ve ever had." The two major ingredients in this mask are chocolate which is  high in antioxidants which help in hydrating and softening the skin and acai berry which helps in retaining the moisture of the skin, and fighting off free radicals that can cause the appearance of fine lines. I had two of these masks and used one on a Monday and the other on a Wednesday and they are wonderful. They have enough product on them but its not an overwhelming drip all over the place amount and the mask says on your face. I love the results after removing it after 20 minutes my skin truly felt hydrated in face I skipped my nighttime moisturizer. My skin was also bright and plump. I am thrilled with the result from the Biobelle #decadence Facial Mask, this is a beauty bag must have!

Next up is a brand new  Biobelle mask it is the #primer Biobelle Facial Mask This new  #primer sheet mask boosts facial texture, minimizes pores and evens skin tone while prepping the skin for a flawless makeup application. In just 5 minutes, our nutrient rich serum made with Tea Tree Oil, Rosehip Extract and Vitamin C, makes the skin look smoother, more hydrated, and glowing. I used this twice with the two masks I received. I applied it in the morning before my makeup routine and I kept it on for 5 minutes. After I removed it from my face it noticed my pores were almost non-existent and my skin was smooth and supple. I went on with my makeup routine skipping my usual primer and this Biobelle #primer Facial Mask really did become my primer it truly prepped my skin for makeup application and it applied evenly and flawlessly. This a is a beauty bag must have without at doubt.

Both Biobelle Facial Masks in #decadence & #primer are 5 $$$$$ and beauty bag must haves that get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

These are all beauty bag must haves to take with you this summer season! 

When I start my beauty routine no matter where I am I start with Confidence in A Cream. This is a luxe  moisturizer that I cannot live without and now I don't have to. For my full review of Confidence in a Cream click here. Every Single day I use the It Cosmetics Brow Power I love that it is a Universal Taupe shade so no matter what hair color I have that month/day or week my brows match my hair color flawlessly. My Full Brow Power review is here. I follow up my eye brow routine with my favorite concealer in the makeup game hands down is Bye Bye Under Eye this has covered so much for me in the past four and half years that I have used it and not only my dark circle from lack of sleep but some acne breakouts that were less than pretty. The fact that the travel size is available has made my month because I will not only travel with it for vacation but keep one in my beauty bag at all times in case something pops up on my face. To ready my full review click here. My final step to my makeup routine especially when on vacation is SPF and if I can use an SPF with some coverage you bet I will use it. My favorite and one and only CC+ Color Correcting W/SPF50+ I use and trust it in the original /illuminating &bronzing version. I love that the travel size is in the original and to read my full review on the CC Cream click here. The final travel size product is the IT'S YOUR BRUSH LOVE which is an instant brush cleanser. I had not tried this until the day the travel size PR package arrived at my home and WOW! I grabbed my It Cosmetics foundation/concealer brush (duel ended one) a paper towel and spared a few spritzes and then rubbed it on the paper towel and I was AMAZED  at how clean my brush became I mean I had only used for about a week with celebration foundation but boy was it dirty and now it was so bright and clean. I must note that these is maybe a five minute dry time but your brushes are instantly clean. There is slight orange scent but the formula is alcohol-free and is developed with plastic surgeons and specifically designed to extend the life of all brush hair, natural or synthetic—plus, it’s packed with gentle, skin-loving ingredients including hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E, making it ideal for even the most sensitive skin types. I had no issues with skin sensitivity and I even used it on my eye shadow brushes which were the cleanest they ever were after using IT'S YOUR BRUSH LOVE!

Everything travel size from It Cosmetics is a beauty bag must have and it has always been in my beauty bag now I just get to take convenient sized items everywhere with me all summer long. This is 5 $$$$$ products that get EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

It cleans my and left it feeling hydrated when I follow up with a pump and half of conditioner I let the Hair Food Moisture Conditioner Infused with Honey Apricot Fragrance sit in my hair for about a minute before I rinse. I use conditioner each and every time however, with the Hair Food Moisture Hair Mask Infused with  Honey Apricot Fragrance  I use that twice a week after cleansing and conditioning and I leave that in my hair for 5-10 minutes depending on how much time I have. That step truly helps my hair when it is practically dry. I cannot get over the fact at how amazing this line of hair care is. Hair Food defines what I thought about cleansing my hair. Hair Food gently cleanses, conditions and nourishes my hair without leaving it feeling heavy or stripped of its natural oils. It is left feeling moisturized yet light and it smells so wonderful!

Anyone who has tired eyes is always looking for an eye cream. I my #BeautyBagDolls started to fight the around the eye are aging process years ago and I try a lot of eye creams. Today I bring to you the Malin+Goetz Revitalizing Eye Cream. The  Malin+Goetz Revitalizing Eye Cream is amazing! Yes I did indeed start this review with praise. I have to tell you I am no longer using my eye serum just the Malin+Goetz Revitalizing Eye Cream and it truly takes the place of everything I used before it came into my life. Malin+Goetz describes the Revitalizing Eye Cream as the "ultimate eye cream is a multi-benefit treatment to powerfully address all eye concerns, including lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles." It is "intensely nourishing yet incredibly lightweight, this luxuriously advanced formula blends firming peptides and skin-energizing marine algae to help strengthen and protect the eye area to look brighter, smoother and more supple."

After day 7 my eyes were refreshed, hydrated and firm. The entire area was lifted! The moisture was perfect without being overwhelming. I use this AM and PM and it absorbed quickly enough where I could follow up with my makeup routine quickly. The Malin+Goetz Revitalizing Eye Cream did not irritate my sensitive eyes at all which is such a must for me.

Now after hitting the gym after work I like to use a dry shampoo just to absorb the excess oil in my scalp so I am a bit obsessed with dry shampoos and to try out the Hair Food Color Protect Dry Shampoo was a delight. I was super impressed that it first and foremost absorbed the oil making my hair feel and look refreshed without having to re-shampoo beautifully styled hair. What impressed me even more is the fact that it helped give me back some volume that I had lost in my hair from the day all while absorbing the oils. I also must mention that this dry shampoo from Hair Food is paraben, mineral oil and gluten free. It is formulated to protect your color treated hair and it smells amazing! I am giving this a 5 $$$$$ and EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA for this beauty bag must have!

Sky Organics Dead Sea Mud Mask

Aloha #BeautyBagDolls I am bringing you a review of the Sky Organics Dead Sea Mud Mask. Sky Organics is a new brand to me but I jumped at the chance to try out the Dead Sea Mud Mask, I love doing a mask and most weeks I do one daily no matter how tiered I am I will remove my makeup and try to do a mask of some sort. Mud masks are my favorite but you only have to use the Sky Organics Dead Sea Mud Mask once a week so I used this one 3 times before writing this review. This mask is a deep skin cleanser that clears acne and reduces pores. Sky Organics’ Dead Sea Mud Mask consists of great ingredients including  "shea butter, sunflower oil, aloe vera, and a number of other organic oils." The benefits are that  removes toxins, improves circulation, helps clear acne, reduces pores & black heads and features anti-aging properties.  To purchase visit Sky Organics.

The Sky Organics Dead Sea Mud Mask is a beauty bag must!

As I mentioned you use this once a week and you apply it to your clean dry skin avoiding the eyes and lips. Leave it on for 15 minutes and use warm water and in a gentle circular motion to remove. I applied this with a brush and it smells really nice goes on easily and feels really good on the skin. After 15 minutes I  removed it as instructed and my skin look much brighter and my pores were indeed reduced. I saw those results immediately after one use. I also did not have any irritation. I had great result after my second use because my pores continued to shirk and my acne scaring looked less visible. I had no breakouts which means it really worked to pull out my acne causing toxins. I am beyond thrilled with the Sky Organics Dead Sea Mud Mask the result are instant and build over time. This is a 5 $$$$$ and a beaut bag must! I am of course giving it EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Both the shampoo and conditioner smell wonderful they also cleanse your hair. The Philip B Fore Ever Shine Shampoo massages into your hair easily with its sulfate, sodium and chloride free formula. It also cleanse gently never leaving my hair feeling dry or stripped!

After you let it sit for 1-3 minutes rinse it out and follow up with the Philip B Forever Shine Conditioner.  This conditioner feels creamy and glides into my hair easily.  It rinses clean. After I towel dry my hair I dry it and style as usual. My hair looked so amazing it was full of body and bounce. My hair felt light and was clean and smelled so nice!

    Rituals Samurai Collection

    #BeautyBagDolls I am honored to bring you another review that is gift friendly for Fathers Day this year and it comes from a brand I love Rituals They have an amazing collection that is called Samurai which is made with Organic Bamboo and Japanese Mint nourish and cool the skin. When I smelled it I thought is just wonderful. The Rituals Samurai Ice Shower Gel is amazing and the Rituals Samurai Cool Hair Strengthening Shampoo for daily use smells like a dream. Any man or woman would love this I personally did try both after my guy filled the bathroom with the invigorating scent! I had to experience it first hand for myself.

    This is the perfect body care products to use! Try it and you will see why! 

    I love the Rituals Samurai Ice Shower Gel it feels absolutely wonderful on the skin it immediately felt cool on contact and didn't leave my skin feeling dry or tight just cleans and soft. My guy thought is was not too foaming just the right amount and that the scent was not overwhelming just manly enough where he could still use his favorite cologne. I was happy to hear he liked it and he too would suggest this as a gift to give to his father and brother for birthdays and defiantly his dad would like it for Fathers Day. He was very happy about the cooling effect because when he uses it after a workout it truly cools him down. I can also attest to this because I used it after hot yoga and it really helped me cool down. Do I want to smell like a boy everyday well maybe don't judge-lol! In all honesty I will steal this from him every now and then but I do like my girly scents much more often then not.

    Next great to give a dad, grad or special guy in your life. The Rituals Samurai Cool Hair Strengthening Shampoo for daily use  smells really good and my guy says that it cleanses his hair without leaving it feeling dry. The  Rituals Samurai Cool Hair Strengthening Shampoo contains sea minerals regulate moisture balance of the hair and scalp, Japanese Mint refreshes and stimulates. I did indeed used this and loved it however my guy loves it more so I won't be poaching it from him after all it is for him and he really love the results. He said his hair was soft which he found to be so great since other shampoos leave his hair feeling dry. He loved the scent and I did like smelling it on him and not so much myself! That the one product on the shelf that will really be his.(lol) I want to also mention that it keeps the hair in optimum condition and gives a natural gloss and contains a gentle cleanser with an anti-dandruff action.

    The final product from Rituals that makes a great gift to give is the Rituals Samurai Magic Shave which is a mild and caring shave cream that is enriched with Basil and Ginseng for shaving and moisturizing the skin. While I know this is "supposed" to be for my guy I have in the past when in a pinch an out of shave gel grabbed his to shave my legs I saw no reason for me not to try this one out as well. I opened the jar and scooped some out lathered up my legs and got an incredible shave. No razor burn nicks or cuts left behind. My skin was smooth and didn't feel dry. I love this stuff and will probably be borrowing it more often than I should.

    These three products from Rituals are the perfect gift to give! They are a 5 $$$$$ and beauty bag musts for any guy in your life. EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA IS IN ORDER!

    When I first pulled these out of the box I notice the three scents Berry Blossom, Delicate Petals and Cucumber. I immediately opened the Cucumber and smoothed it all over my hands. It of course smelled like a light scent of cucumber but it also quickly absorbed into my skin and moisturized my hands leaving them feeling soft and supple. I was so impressed. The EOS Hand Lotion 3-Pack Spring 2017 Limited Edition has shea butter and aloe to soften your hands and it is hypoallergenic, 96% natural, paraben and thankfully gluten free. The fit anywhere, which means I keep one in my beauty bag, one in my gym tote and the other in my office desk. I have soft, smooth, supple and hydrated hands all day everyday!

    I could not wait to use this so the day I knew it was going to arrive I made sure that the night before I washed and dried my hair to make sure I would have nice straight hair style for that day then when it arrived I was ready to plug in the Foxybae and curl my hair. The Foxybae 32mm Curling Wand was easy to use and I literally had a head full of beachy waves in about 12 minutes! For me depending on how much hair I wrapped around the barrel depended on what my curls looked like! This was by far the best experience I have ever had with a curling wand! Foxybae is my go to must have on my bathroom counter. It is a beautiful to display. I am so thrilled with the result and that my hair is not damaged or dry after I use it. The curl lasts until you wash them out and they hold without using a ton of product.

    dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift

    Do you have tired eyes #BeautyBagDolls? Not to worry dermalogica has you covered with their new Stress Positive Eye Lift. This is a two in one eye treatment an mask that visibly reduces the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. It will instantly brighten and lift the eye area and help restore the skin barrier. This is one of the best eye cream mask gels I have ever tried! Read on for more details.
    My tired eyes have been changed thanks to dermalogica!

    This is a  cooling cream-gel masque energizes skin to reduce visible signs of stress. My eye area is stressed between work which I stare at a screen for some of the day and of course life in general lack of sleep of course I am always up for a new eye cream. While dark circles are a slight concern for me they do appear when I don't have enough sleep I do struggle with puffiness more often from my lack of sleep so I really put the dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift to the test. This is simple enough to apply you just apply it to cleansed skin around the eye with the cooling massage applicator and if you want to use it as a mask leave it on fairly thick for 3 to 5 minutes then massage in and remove excess with a tissue. I saw a difference in just three days using it twice daily. I did not have any puffiness and my eye area was bright and lifted. After a week I was thrilled to see that and eye cream helped boost my tired lookin eyes, it was as if the stress on them melted away and with other eye creams it does not erase the look of tied stressed eyes like dermalogica Stress Positive Eye Lift did. I am more than impressed and I love this product. dermalogica has quickly become one of my favorites for skin care so this is of course a 5 $$$$$ and a beauty bag must that is getting EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!
