This little pot is a miracle!  It covered everything I wanted covered, I played with eye color and it kept it in place all day.  This is the first eye primer I’ve ever tried and I’m glad my experience was a good one.  

Totally Transforming Eyeshadow Primer is powerful, a tiny dab will cover your entire eyelid, erasing redness, discoloration and tiny veins.  My lids were a smooth canvas and my eye color lasted longer, it didn’t crease or fade!  

The plus is that this amazing little pot contains an antioxidant extract that helps protect the skin from aging while smoothing unwanted expression lines.

Everyday Gorgeous Hair

Unimaginable Volume, Texture and Dimension

Opening the boxes of Liqwd hair care products I knew I was in for a luxurious experience.  Not only was the packaging to die for, but the product was amazing.

I was concerned at first, because usually whenever I’ve tried a volumizing shampoo or conditioner my hair was always left a little dry.  I had to sacrifice volume for moisture.  Now I don’t have to sacrifice anything!

I instantly noticed my hair was thicker, and more radiant!  I tested out the product for a few more days,  usually products work well the first few times and then sadly disappoint.  Not Liqwd!

Liqwd is the future of fabulous hair, it has superior Nano-Hydraspheres and Colorlife technologies that carry high-powered nutrients to the hair shaft – resulting in Unimaginable Volume, Texture and Dimension.

I didn’t even have to blow dry my hair to feel or see the volumizing effect the shampoo and conditioner had on my hair, I was even more surprised that my hair color was more vibrant and radiant.  I was surprised because usually you don’t get so many benefits from using volumizing hair care products.

I loved washing my hair, the lather was rich and frothy, the fragrance was amazing, truly a luxurious experience.

Liqwd volumizing hair care products are the ultimate high-powered everyday treatments for flat, lifeless hair.  The results are everyday gorgeous hair!

~ Hydrotherapy Skincare for Sensitive Skin ~

EAU THERMALE AVENE

I suffer from adult acne, especially during that time of the month.  It doesn’t matter what skincare regimen I’m using, my hormones go crazy and I need help from my dermatologist, Dr. Burns.

He’s trying to help me get my adult acne under control and it’s a battle.  He gave me my cortisone shot and recommended that I use basic skincare for at least a few days.

Luckly for me I had Avene, it’s Hydrotherpy skincare for sensitive skin.  After testing intense skincare treatments and trying to combat adult acne alone, I needed skincare for sensitive skin.

I used Avene’s Gentle Purifying Scrub, Soothing Moisture Mask and their Redness Relief Soothing Cream with SPF25.

Gentle Purifying Scrub – Unclogs pores, purifies skin and reduces inflammation, Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic.  The non-abrasive beads felt more like a cleanser, leaving my skin smoother and brighter.

Soothing Moisture Mask – Soothes and softens skin, hydrates and nourishes.  It deeply penetrates to help restore the skin’s protective barrier and helps eliminate redness.

Redness Relief Soothing Cream SPF25 – Reduces inflammation from bumps, pimples, burning or irritated skin.  Helps in the strengthening of blood vessel walls and vein health.  It minimized my blotchy red skin.

Avene skincare is affordable skincare that offers various skincare treatments for all skin types.

I think I’m going to stick to this program for a few more days, EAU THERMALE AVENE  gets a TEN!!

http://www.christiharris.com

This styling aide got me out of a pinch the other morning.  I was in a hurry and used it as a dry shampoo.  It left my hair sleek and shiny.

Everyone on Fillmore street recognizes me because I’m usually wearing my black baseball hat while running errands.  I’m sick of wearing that baseball hat, and I’m lucky this Volumizing hair Gel fell into my lap.

It’s a 3-in-1 styling aide that can be used as a light-control finishing spray, dry shampoo and it’s a heat activated volumizer that gives hair body & fullness.  I loved that it got me out of bed and out the door!
