Stay Matte All Day Long

In preparation for my nuptials this past April, I asked an associate at my local Ulta store for primer recommendations. I needed something to deal with my t-zone issues because the biggest problem I have is when my face gets oily right around lunch time. I discovered a Lorac product called POREfection Mattifying Face Primer. This primer goes for $32 dollars at ulta and it definitely worth a try!

I thought it would be helpful if I shared with you how the primer works for me. Here's an image of me right after I applied my makeup.

And here is a pic of my makeup 5 hours later. Note that it was 80 degrees outside this day and I was running around doing errands.

HAIRFINITY - my findings

About 5 months ago I started using hairfinity and was curious to see if this new hair vitamin phenomena was worth trying out and integrating into my daily routine going forward. Here are my findings:

1. I noticed that my hair was healthier and fuller after a month or so using hairfinity.

2. After about 3 months not much changed. My hair was still healthier than before I began taking the vitamins but I didn't notice any significant growth.

3. I should have taken more progress photos while conducting the experiment.

4. And lastly, hair vitamins are great for making your hair healthier but unless you take other hair care steps, i.e trimming, no or low heat, etc. your hair will grow at the rate it usually does with or without the vitamins. 




I received my first ipsy bag this week and I have to say that I'm pretty impressed! First off, you get a cute makeup bag with your samples. And I'm excited to try each product. I've been a subscriber of birchbox for a few months now and I have received a few great things. However there's usually 1 or 2 out of the 5 samples that I'm actually excited about. Then there's ipsy and on the first shipment I'm in live with every single sample and the bonus is that I get a makeup bag!!! Love, love, love it! It's only $10 a month and totally worth a try!

My Haifinity Journey Update

It's been about a little over a week since I started my experiment with Hairfinity. I haven't noticed much growth yet, however, my hair does shed noticiably less. Overall I'm happy with the results thus far and I cannot wait until the month is over so I can show you all my progress. Stay tuned, in the next post I will have finished my first bottle of Hairfinity and I will recap the experience.

Hairfinity Day 1

I received my Haifinity in the mail yesterday and just started the first bottle. Here is a picture of my hair on day 1. And since each bottle is only a 1 month supply, I will update weekly on my progress.

You'll notice on the company's website that there are quite a few testimonials and most are very convincing.  Like this one for example:

I'm a bit skeptical about this, because lets face it, if it truly worked, every woman in America would be taking these already, right? Hopefully, I'll have similar results, lets keep our fingers crossed.
