Olay Fresh Effects Everything Off! Make-Up Removal Wet Cloths Review

Olay Fresh Effects Everything Off! Make-Up Removal Wet Cloths

If you wear makeup whether occasionally or on a daily basis one of your main concern would be removing the makeup from your face etc. This is where makeup removal wipes becomes convenient and very handy.

The Olay Fresh Effects Everything Off! Makeup Removal Wet Cloth wipes away dirt, oil, lipstick, makeup and mascara. One of these wet cloth is good enough to remove away the excess of makeup that you might be wearing unlike other wet cloths you might have to use up to 2 or more to get rid of stubborn makeup not to mention waterproof mascara.

Each wet cloth contains a refreshing burst of honeysuckle and white tea essence.

Shea Moisture African Black Soap

The Shea Moisture African Black Soap is made from palm ash, tamarind extract and plantain peel. It is used to treat acne prone and troubled skin like eczema,  acne, oily skin, psoriasis and other skin ailments. The African Black Soap also combines with the healing and hydrating properties of Shea Butter. It can be used daily to balance and resolve skin problems.

The African Black Soap is cruelty free and it doesn't contains:

  • Parabens

  • Paraffin
  • Glutten
  • Propylene Glycol

  • Synthetic Fragrance
  • Animal Testing
  • PABA
  • Synthetic Color
  • DEA
  • Sulfates
I have been using the Shea Moisture African Black soap for quiet awhile now and I have seen little or no changes to my skin. For some it helped to remove dark spots and excess oil from the skin. I still continue to use it as a daily cleanser since I have no breakouts and it does not dry out the skin etc. The soap has a wonderful scent though that can cover the entire room.

Taliah Waajid Curl Sealer Review

Taliah Waajid Curl Sealer

What is Curl Sealer?
A light, alcohol-free, conditioning hydrating gel. Stops frizz, adds moisture, defines, shapes and seals in any size or texture of curl. Dries soft and adds shine with no flaking.

Apply after Clean-N-Curly shampoo. Use on wet hair to set in curls. Use on dry hair to revitalize curls. Avoid combing/fingering through hair for at least 10-15 minutes to help seal in curls and prevent frizz. Also holds hair in place for ponytails, pinups, twist outs etc.

I was amazed by what this product did to some naturalistas hair on YouTube, so I was very anxious to purchase it to try on my own hair, after hours of searching for the best site to buy this product I finally made my purchase on Not too surprisingly the product arrive and the bottle was a little bit messy, the product inside was fine though. It had a great scent.

I used this Taliah Waajid Curl Sealer directly as stated on the bottle but to my surprise the end results was clearly not what I wanted. I placed the Taliah Waajid Curl Sealer on single strands of my twist out to lock in the curls but it either made the curls messy or didn't lock it in worse it made my hair really flaky, every strand that I had place the Taliah Waajid Curl Sealer had a bunch of flake.

I really wanted to like this product but with the amount of flake/residue it left behind doesn't make me want to purchase it again. I didn't use it with any other product and I ended up had to wear hair in a bun.

I didn't want to wash my hair again, so I was trying to dust the flaky residue from my hair but it was all over my skin and I didn't want my skin to be irritated. I don't normally do wash n' go, so I only tried it on dry hair maybe it will make a difference if my hair was wet.

The Taliah Waajid Curl Sealer is a clear substance that can be used to shape and seal in curls for natural hair. It can be used on twist out, ponytails and various other natural hair styles. The product has a very pleasant scent and it is packed in a 6fl. oz container.

NYX Eyebrow Gel Review

NYX Eyebrow Gel (Chocolate EBG02)

When NYX first introduce their Eyebrow Gel on the market I was very excited to try it since I'm a big fan of NYX and I love a tame brow that will not fly away. I ended up purchasing the NYX Eyebrow Gel in Chocolate. It comes in a small tube that can easily be squeezed to get the product out.

The obsession with fresh and clean begins. ‪#‎januaryglambag‬ ‪#‎ipsy‬‪#‎sneakpeek‬

NYX Concealer (Orange)

NYX Concealer (Orange)

The NYX Concealer provides an excellent full coverage for blemishes, dark circles and discolorations. It is not over drying, it is smooth and able to be blended. It also provides a long lasting coverage for any skin types. I use this to cover up my dark spots right after I apply primer and just before applying foundation.

How to apply?
1. apply orange concealer to problem area
2. blend
3. follow up with foundation
4. and setting powder

I use a concealer brush to apply the concealer to my skin as well as dipping it in the jar to get the product out. I rather to use a brush than dipping my fingers into the jar with make it much easier and creates less mess.
NYX Concealer (Orange)
This concealer hides all my dark spots and the coverage it offers is magnificent it leaves my skin looking flawless. The texture is thick and creamy, so a little bit of product goes a long way and the price is affordable. I wouldn't recommend this concealer to be used as an eye primer as it might cause creasing along the eye area.

This concealer is available in 13 shades, 4 of which are color corrector in yellow, lavender, green and orange.

Ipsy Glam Bag December 2014 Review

Ipsy Glam Bag Dec 2014
This is the last ipsy bag for the year and I'm already anticipating spoilers for January Ipsy Glam bag. If you are not familiar to Ipsy it is a monthly glam bag subscription service that delivers 4-5 beauty products at your door that is curated by Michelle Phan, at first while signing up you will be asked to fill out a personalized quiz. Ipsy glam bag ships to the US and Canada.

I would consider my self as a NYX addict/junkie, I have numerous amount of NYX products and I was happy when I saw it in the sneak peeks. Although i was hoping that I didn't received the nude lip balm. I received the NYX butter lip balm in red velvet. Lip balm are essential as it helps to keep the lips smooth and crack free. The NYX butter lip balm goes on very smooth, provides a sheer finish with a fruity flavour and it is also moisturizing.

I have received other Nourish Organic products in previous glam bag and it worked for me. I am not sure if I like this Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream. I tried it once on my eye area and woke up to fine bumps under my eyes. The Nourish Organic Renewing Eye Cream is a very lightweight lotion that absorbs quickly into the skin. It is made from natural ingredients like avocado and argan. It can be used on normal to dry skin. This product is new on the market and will be available for purchase in January 2015.

I love receiving eye shadows in my ipsy bag since i make use of all and they come in great sizes that I can easily toss in my purse and bring anywhere I want with me. The Cailyn Mineral Eyeshadow comes with a built-in sponge tip for easy application. It has a creamy consistency and it is made with 100% raw mineral powder. I receive the Cailyn Mineral Eyeshadow in the colour Orchid.

I'm starting to love having travel size mascara more than the full size ones, since these are easier to carry around and handle while applying to eye lashes. The tarte lights, camera, lashes 4-in-1 mascara was one of the main products featured in the ipsy glam bag. The tarte 4-in-1 mascara is formulated to improve volume and length while curling and condition.

I am not sure if I want to see hair products in my ipsy glam bags. My hair is currently in a protective style, so I haven't get to try this Coolway Boost Repair hair serum as yet. This product should be used after shampoo as a leave in treatment for 4 minutes and rinse out with warm water. The packaging didn't specify whether it is for dry scalp, split ends etc. but it's good for hair repairs.

Coolway Boost Repair

This is a review of all the 5 products that I received in my ipsy December 2014 glam bag, I am in no way affiliated or compensated by ipsy. I pay for my own subscription glam bag. If you want to sign up, please feel free to use my referral link here:
