Alon Rewind Serum for Redness and Anti Aging Skin

This product comes in two glass bottles, one is a powder, and the other one is an activating liquid. You are instructed to pour the liquid into the power and to shake well before each use. Once the liquid and powder are combined, the product is good for 30 days.

Changes in my skin: I have been using this serum for exactly two weeks now, too recent to see maximum results, but for a minimal results my face is much more brighter. Less red I would say. But, I must say, so far I’m impressed.

Plus, it is all natural and cruelty-free!

Where to buy: You can purchase and/or learn more here on Alon’s website.

IT Superstars Collection Releasing November 20, 2015 on QVC

Totally worth buying this makeup line. It works and you will not be disappointed.  Check them out on QVC on November 20, 2015

I absolutely love this pencil! It's a super-flattering shade , even with my multitude of hair colors! I was using brown eyeshadow previously to fill in my brows but this is way more precise and natural looking.

Cruelty Free means NO ANIMAL TESTING

Celebration Foundation is a pressed-powder foundation that IT Cosmetics claims has a variety of anti-aging properties courtesy of ingredients like niacinamide, peptides, antioxidants, and "hyaluronic filling spheres." I  use a primer under this, and lightly brush this powder over it.

Goes on very smooth, has a nice touch of color and lasts all day. In addition it's super hydrating and makes my lips look and feel great. The all-natural formula pampers lips on four different levels: It goes on creamy like a moisturizing lipstick, stays put like a lip stain, deeply hydrates, and delivers potent antiaging ingredients to treat and prevent those itty-bitty lip wrinkles.

Hello Lashes 5-in-1 Treatment Mascara. Some admirers have asked if I was wearing eyelash extensions! So it works! Unfortunately, this mascara is on the pricy side, but if you regularly purchase false lashes ($5 to $25) this product could potentially save you money in the end.
It dries quickly, doesn't flake or smudge, and is water-resistant. Other than the excellent formula, Hello Lashes mascara also stands out amongst similar products because of its unique brush design: The two-sided tapered brush coats and separates outside lashes, while a small bulb at the end effortlessly reaches inner corner and lower lashes.

10 Behaviors of Genuine People Today

I stumbled across this article on that detailed the 10 behaviors of genuine people today, and I love reading it so much I had to share with you all.

Full credit to the author Steve. I am soaking this all in! Being genuine and surrounding myself with genuine people are what I’m about these days. Hope y’all are doing the same! XOXO
“Whether you’re building a business, a network, or friendships, you always want to look for people who are genuine. After all, nobody wants to work or hang out with a phony. On the flipside, that goes for you, as well. Bet you never considered that.
In case you’re wondering, genuine means actual, real, sincere, honest. Genuine people are more or less the same on the inside as their behavior is on the outside. Unfortunately, it’s a tough quality to discern. The problem is that all human interactions are relative. They’re all a function of how we perceive each other through our own subjective lenses.
Being genuine is also a rare quality. In a world full of phony fads, media hype, virtual personas, positive thinkers, and personal brands – where everyone wants what they don’t have, nobody’s content to be who they are, and, more importantly, nobody’s willing to admit to any of that – it’s becoming more and more rare all the time.
To help you identify this rare breed — in yourself, as well — this is how genuine people behave. 
They don’t seek attention. They don’t need constant reinforcement of their own ego. Where attention seekers have a hole that constantly needs to be filled, genuine people are already filled with self-confidence and self-awareness.
They’re not concerned with being liked. The need to be liked is born of insecurity and narcissism. It creates a need to manipulate your own and other’s emotions. Confident and authentic people are simply themselves. If you like them, fine. If not, that’s fine, too.
They can tell when others are full of it. Perhaps naïve folks can be easily fooled, but genuine people are not naïve. They’re grounded in reality and that gives them a baseline from which they can tell when things don’t add up. There’s a big difference.
They are comfortable in their own skin. In his late 70s, actor Leonard Nimoy said he was closer than ever to being as comfortable with himself as Spock appeared to be. Most of us struggle with that. As Henry David Thoreau observed, “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”
They do what they say and say what they mean. They don’t tend to overreach or exaggerate. They meet their commitments. And they don’t parse their words or sugarcoat the truth. If you need to hear it, they’ll tell you … even if it’s tough for them to say and for you to hear.
They don’t need a lot of stuff. When you’re comfortable with whom you are, you don’t need a lot of external stuff to be happy. You know where to find happiness – inside yourself, your loved ones, and your work. You find happiness in the simple things.
They’re not thin-skinned. They don’t take themselves too seriously so they don’t take offense when none is intended.
They’re not overly modest or boastful. Since they’re confident of their strengths, they don’t need to brag about them. Likewise, they don’t exhibit false modesty. Humility is a positive trait but it’s even better to just be straightforward.
They’re consistent. You might describe genuine people as being weighty, solid, or substantial. Since they know themselves well and are in touch with their genuine emotions, they’re more or less predictable … in a good way.
They practice what they preach. They’re not likely to advise people to do something they wouldn’t do themselves. After all, genuine people know they’re no better than anyone else so it’s not in their nature to be self-righteous.
All those seemingly different behaviors have the same thing at their core: self-awareness that’s consistent with reality. Genuine people see themselves as others would if they were objective observers. There’s not a lot of processing, manipulating, or controlling going on between what’s in their head and what people see and hear.
Once you get to know them, genuine people turn out to be more or less consistent with the way they initially hold themselves out to be. What you see is what you get. It’s sad that, in today’s world, such a positive quality is at risk of becoming endangered. Not only is it harder to find in others, it’s becoming harder to be genuine ourselves.”

Gisell's Top 5 Steps to Remove Makeup Easily

Do you want to look older than you are? NO? Well then always take off your makeup at night.  It is the single most important part of your daily skincare routine. Cut corners on other things but don’t skip this one.  If you don’t your skin can’t rest and renew while you sleep.

Having said this it is of course important to remove your makeup in the right way.  It certainly shouldn’t take longer to take your makeup off that it does to put it on. I have created my top 5 steps to remove makeup easily.

Gisell's top 5 steps to remove makeup easily are:

Step 1 – Pull your hair back
This takes literally seconds but if you don’t tie your hair off your face you can’t get to all of your face and your hairline.  Makeup and dirt can build up around your hairline. I use a headband and it holds even the baby hairs back and out my way.

Step 2 – Be gentle around your eyes
Easy ways to remove eyeliner and mascara are essential techniques as they are the hardest to get off. Especially if they are water proof makeup. You need to do this gently as the skin around the eyes is sensitive. I use a cotton pad and an oil based eye make-up remover and hold the pad over your lids and lashes for about 10 seconds to allow the remover to dissolve the products gently, before wiping.  For any stubborn bits dip a cotton bud into the remover and dab on the eyelid as needed.

Step 3 – Cleanse and tone
Your daily cleanser should take off any makeup on your face.  Rub the cleanser over your face ensuring you go to the hairline and under your chin, and let it soak in for a few seconds before removing with a flannel or a cotton pad soaked in warm water.  Then put your daily toner onto a cotton pad and rub gently over your face.

Step 4 – Don’t use too much product
Keep the amount of remover, moisturiser or toner on your makeup pads to a minimum.  There is no need to use tons of product to remove the makeup easily… it is easier on your skin to use less and will save you money in the long run. I a all about money savings.

Step 5 – Mask is your friend
If your skin is in need of a quick boost use a good mask. It will do a deeper cleanse from inside the pores. I use masks once a week.

There! Its easy fast and your skin will thank you in the long run.

Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser by Murad

I am close to enter my 40's, I 'll be 39 soon and Murad has just launched their body care line which is supposed reduce the appearance of aging. Happy Birthday to ME! Ha!
The Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser is a cleansing clay that is supposed to richly lather while using Ginger Root Extract to encourage circulation, and Safflower and Sunflower Oils to moisturize. It is scented lightly with lemongrass and vetiver.

This body cleanser had a consistency between a lotion and a cream and lathered quite well. It washed off easy and my body had that residual moisturized feel. I can't tell if it's actually increasing my circulation but the instructions suggest lathering in circular motions from your legs on up.
The clay body cleanser contains ginger root extract to help stimulate circulation while safflower and sunflower oils moisturize the skin to leave it soft and hydrated. The Kaolin Clay gently absorbs oil and draws out toxins from the skin without leaving it horribly dry.
Yes it’s rich and thick, but it’s creamy rather than chalky and gloopy, which makes it much more pleasant to apply to your skin.
You only need a tiny amount because it lathers up beautifully to create a frothy and luxurious shower experience.
It has a delicate, citrusy scent which leaves your skin smelling fresh and clean and it does a great job of leaving your skin feeling soft.

It really did leave my skin feeling soft and nourished and I felt a bit like I was having a spa experience when using it.
It’s a very clever little product if you ask me!
Murad Detoxifying White Clay Body Cleanser has to be one of the most fabulous shower products I’ve ever used.

#PROTIP: Prepare your skin for a year-long glow it leaves the skin silky smooth.

4) H2O

Don’t forget, water really does keep you feeling fresh and your skin hydrated, improving skin colour and elasticity. So, remember to also drink 8 glasses of water a day. The end result… If you feel good, you’ll look good!

Remember, summer may be over but nothing will stop a true tanner from achieving a flawless year round glow!

Montenegro Lipstick by Amrezy

Who is one of the best known makeup artist in Instagram? Amrezy  is. She is amazing and talented. I have been following her for years when she lived in NYC. Now she resides in LA and she came out with 3 new lipsticks with LipLand Cosmetics.

I bought the Montenegro and the Rezy. Rezy is a nude color and Montenegro is shown above. I love this color. Feels velvety on my lips and it is a dry lipstick. As she mentions it is important to wear lip balm underneath. I didn't do that so it was a bit difficult to take off. This will be my color for the moment. I will do another look and post wearing Rezy. Stay tuned.
Have you tried them? How do you feel comment below.

5 Natural Hair Growth Remedies


Of course, we are living in the 21st century and there are a lot of alternatives in the form of supplements or specialist hair care products. But still, for many women it is interesting how generations before have promoted hair growth. At hair salon new york we collected 5 of the most popular proved natural hair growth remedies.

5 proved remedies for hair growth
Remedy #1 Onion juice
One of the most popular remedies for hair growth is rubbing onion juice into the scalp. In old recipes it is suggested to use it for 15 minutes after using shampoo. This time will be enough for the sulfur in the onion to increase collagen production.

Remedy #2 Coconut oil
Coconut oil is a natural source of moisturizing oil for hair. One of the benefits of using exactly coconut oil is that it has a few important vitamins for hair growth. Many people believe in the myth that coconut oil is one of the best natural remedies only for black hair. It is not true, as this oil is effective on hair of any color that has the tendency to dry out and become brittle.

Remedy #3 Eggs
One of the simplest natural remedies for hair growth is to make an egg mask. You whisk a couple of eggs up with a spoon of olive oil and massage it thoroughly into the hair. Leave the mask in for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse the mixture out with lukewarm water. As a final step, use a gentle shampoo or conditioner.

Remedy #4 Herbal
Herbal remedies are good to protect against hair falling out. You can use rosemary, sage, hibiscus, nettle or even green tee. You should an infusion of herbs as a final rinse after shampooing.

Remedy #5 Nutrition
Our hair needs nourishment from within to be shiny, healthy and grow fast. So, don’t forget about healthy diet, full of proteins and vitamins.
Still, if rubbing onions into your scalp doesn’t sound too appealing, you should consider clinically researched hair growth supplements with complete nutrition for hair growth.

Top Essential Oils For Hair Growth

Almost every woman has heard about using essential oils for hair growth. There is little evidence that such oils can stimulate new hair growth. However, you should take into consideration that the main function of any oil is to promote a healthier environment for optimal hair growth. Some of the essential oils condition the hair, while others soothe the scalp. But the result is the same – all of them make the hair looking thicker and healthier.
At hair salon new york we decided to create a list of top essential oils for hair growth and here they are.

Top essential oils for hair growth
#1 Horsetail Plant Oil
You should know a few facts about horsetail plant oil:
  • It promotes stronger hair and nails.
  • It is a good remedy for split ends.
  • It can be used as a remedy for dandruff.
  • It helps to improve blood circulation to your scalp, promoting the ideal environment for hair growth.
#2 Castor Oil
A few facts about castor oil:
  • It is an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial oil.
  • It helps clean pores.
  • It improves circulation to create a better environment for hair growth.
  • It easily absorbs into the skin to clear the scalp of bacteria and irritants.
  • It contains ricinoleic acid, omega-6, omega-9 fatty acids that moisturize hair and scalp to reduce dandruff.
#3 Lavender Oil
Things you should know about lavender oil:
  • It is a good antibacterial essential oil.
  • It can soothe irritation, dryness, itchiness and dandruff.
  • It can reduce stress and irritation if used daily. As you know stress promotes hair loss.
  • It helps invigorate the scalp
#4 Peppermint Oil
Few things about peppermint oil:
  • While it is good for digestion and muscles, it also has anti-bacterial properties.
  • It can boost blood circulation.
  • It is better to use it with gentle shampoo or moisturizing conditioner.
How to use essential oil? General recommendations are:
  1. Add a few drops of the chosen oil to 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil or extra virgin olive oil.
  2. Gently massage into hair and scalp for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Rinse the oil out with lukewarm water and shampoo your hair.
None of these oils will work if you don’t take care of yourself from within. So, remember, that a healthy diet is the number one remedy for thick and strong hair.

How to Get Smooth Silky Hair



However, professionals at hair salon nyc know expert styling tricks on how to achieve smooth silky hair and they are ready to share their knowledge with you. No matter what hair type you have, follow these simple tips to make your hair shiny and silky.

3 simple tips on how to get smooth silky hair  
Tip #1
We are sure you’re aware of the fact that shampoo strips hair of natural oils and moisture. It may be true, but it all depends on the shampoo you use. If you take your hair texture into account and choose a suitable shampoo, it will nourish hair and keep the scalp clean of sebum and debris. You can try gentle shampoo. It is usually at least 99% naturally derived and exfoliates the scalp with botanical or fruit extracts, creating the ideal environment for healthy hair growth.

Tip #2
You may already know that using oils is useful for your hair. Still some people think that adding oil will make hair greasy. It is not so because modern hair oils contain advanced silicones and humectants that seal the hair cuticle from humidity. As a result, your hair will look sleek and shiny all day without greasiness. How to determine what amount of oil is correct? Using oils depends on the hair type you have. For instance, if you have fine hair, you will probably need only a pea-sized amount. If you have wavy hair, you may get away with using more oil.

Tip #3
Everyone knows that heat can damage the hair. However, not many people know that even washing or rinsing your hair with hot water can damage it, breaking down the cuticle. The best variant is to use lukewarm water for all procedures with hair.
So, now you’ve learned how to make your hair silky from the outside with styling tricks. Try using them in practice.

Thank You

    Collagen Support Body Cream

    Intensely hydrating body cream with Shea Butter and Jojoba Extract triples skin’s moisture upon application and nourishes skin by locking in moisture for 24 hours. Collagen Support Complex helps improve skin’s resilience to give skin a more supple and youthful appearance.
    Now that I'm in my 30's I do worry about not getting enough elasticity and moisture.After noticing that as I age my legs were losing the supple toned look that I was accustom to I decided to add this to my daily routine. Money well spent!! This body cream has been a recent nightly favorite!  First, I can’t get enough of the creamy crisp ginger scent but it feels good on the skin.  It’s a lightweight cream that absorbs quickly yet keeps the skin moisturized. I use it on my neck and my legs. I love it and you will too.

    Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips

    This product is AMAZING. The product promises a more youthful appearance. I’m here to tell you that this treatment delivers. The product softened the lines on my lips and left them smooth and soft. You can not even see the lines when I pucker my lips. NICE! I think this was money well spent. This really does help with the texture and look of my lips. It makes them look less dry and cracked, so my lipstick looks more smooth. This isn't going to plump your lips and make them look fake. For that, you would have to get lip injections. This product does what it promises, in my opinion. A little bit goes a long way, so you just need a thin layer.
    How to use: Murad’s Rapid Collagen Infusion for Lips is a treatment/serum for your lips. You can apply it before your lip balm or lip color. Since it leaves your lips nice and smooth, your lip color will apply smoother. 
    Do you have a lip treatment that you love? Please let me know in the comments below.
