St.Ives Microdermabrasion Review

Scrub Scrub Scrub Until Its GONE


I've been using St. Ives Apricot Scrub for the longest everyday sometimes twice a day, I noticed that using it everyday irritated my skin and I stopped using it as often as I did before. It got the the point where I just stopped using it completely for no particular reason.

About few months ago I read a post by the lovely KATRINA about her skin care routine and she mentioned St. Ives Microdermabrasion and I had Microdermabrasion procedure done by a professional.

DrugStore Products

Its The Battle Of The Best And The Cheap

5:19 AM Katherine H 1 Comments

Let the Battle Begin....

Drugstore vs. Department Store




PhotobucketPhotobucket


Since I joined the YOUTUBE and BLOG community I will be honest and say " I was tempted to buy everything I seen in the drug store" I wanted to try everything and anything to post up a review. NOW I KNOW better, since then I've stopped purchasing anything from drug store and gave myself a word that "I WILL NOT BUY ANOTHER PRODUCT UNTIL I USE ALMOST EVERYTHING I HAVE BOUGHT SO FAR"

I am AMAZED at myself. Its been about 5 months and the only thing I purchased was St. Ives Exfoliator that I LOVE and will blog about soon. I've keep my word and I didnt have any urges to buy anything from drug store.

I am so PROUD of myself

My mom stopped using drug store products for the longest already and NO IAM NOT BRAGGING OR SAYING I AM RICH AND WE ONLY SHOP DEPARTMENT STORE BRANDS. Me and my mom we just rather buy department because its much better quality (NOT ALL) AND IT WILL LAST LONGER.

P.S. I found this very interesting ......

Photobucket

I didn't give up on everything from drug store products because its not worth buying expensive department store products........

HERE IS WHAT I STILL PURCHASE AT DRUGSTORE:

Make Up:
- Cover Girl Mascara
- Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup

Skin Care:
- St. Ives Scrube and St. Ives Microdermabrasion
- Neutrogena Deep Clean Relaxing Nightly Cleanser
- Neutrogena Untra Sheer SPF 70
- Vaseline
P.S. I Use Home Remedies Most Of The Times For Face Masks

Body:
- Jergens Natural Glow Moisturizer
- Satin Care Shaving Gel
- Summer's EVE Feminine Deodorant Spray

Hair:
- Head&Shoulders Intensive Treatment Shampoo
- Herbal Essence Body Envy Mousse
P.S. I Use Home Remedies For My Hair Masks

***This is the most of the things I picked up from my bathroom that I use from drugstore. It may change depending if I decide to try something new.

DEPARTMENT STORE PRODUCTS I STARTED TO PURCHASE...

P.S It's not a lot, but these are the things I've been trying and licking a lot.....

Make Up:
MAC eye shadows
***Coastal Scents 88 pallet

Face:
Clinique 3 step system
Clensi Derm MD 3 Step System
P.S. I Use Home Remedies Most Of The Times For Face Masks

Hair:
NONE AT THE MOMENT
P.S. I Use Home Remedies For My Hair Masks

Body:
NON AT THE MOMENT

Like I said I m slowly transferring to department store brands because I just seen a big difference int he quality. Yes the price is higher, but I rather buy one thing that works then keep buying and trying new drugstore store products that keep failing.

I would recommend any one to do research online compare products read reviews and go with decide on any products before purchasing. so many people buy products even its just $5 and throw away or end up not using it at all. SAVE your $$$ and do little homework before you purchase anything.

If you are a beginner at make up I put together a video just for you of the things I would recommend any beginner at make up

My Treasure Chest

My Jewelry Collection Is Expanding....


I dont know if you guys notice it but about few months ago my love for jewelry has grown so much, to a point where I needed to get a a bigger storage case.

This is what I stared with....and I still use today to store things that didn't fit in the new box.
Photobucket

I looked around online and in stores and i got few ideas of what I want to store my jewelry in. I am a person who likes it neat and organized. I dont like to keep my jewelry out because not everything i have is real which means it get rusty and gets old fast.

I found this neat jewelry organizer in my moms closet (I knew she had it, but never payed any attention to it!) I asked her if I could borrow it to see if ALL of my jewelry will fit in and how it will look.....

Photobucket

I LOVE that it's pale pink

Photobucket

The case inside is a good size, but I knew not all of my jewelry wont fit in. I listed to my mom and just took her case to see if I would like how it stores all of my jewelry pieces.

Let me tell you...
I LOVE IT I DORE IT I USE IT ALL THE TIME I CANT GET ENOUGH OF IT!

See how excited I am about it! Lets look inside!

Photobucket

Photobucket

NOW I am on a look out of a organizing case that is BIGGER much BIGGER then this one! I need one to fit in all of my current jewelry and the future jewelry peaces to come :)

If you guys have suggestions where I can get a BIGGER case let me know

Product Review: HOT TOOLS (Curling Iron) 1-1/4" Professional Iron For Large, Loose Gurls

10:25 AM Katherine H 2 Comments

Ladies don't you want a professional styling tools to do your hair?


You can if you can afford it. For the readers that can't I have a suggestion to share with you that may help you have the saloon quality products for the fraction of the cost.


Let me introduce to you guys brand called HOT TOOLS...( I am aware a lot of you know this brand, this is for the people that don't or if you need more information about it) I Been using their curling iron for about 5 months now. The reason why i waited so long before I do a review is simply because I wanted to try different want to use it with different products too see what it works with better. Usually the review that I read have been posted with in about one week or few days, those reviews I don't trust event though maybe the product they are using is a true miracle!

There are 5 different types of HOT TOOLS PRODUCTS:

<span class=

This is the one I own and will be reviewing:

<span class=

Before I begin with my personal review let me share with you some information that I read on their website!


Hot Tools® appliances have become the standard for professional hairdressers. With patented, powerful heating systems in curling irons and flat irons, plus advanced technology in hair dryers, Hot Tools® are demanded by stylists performing in the highest pressure styling environments including film, TV photo shoots and backstage styling at hair shows. Beauty is serious business...use Hot Tools®!
Product Features:

Mica Heating System
Mica Heating System
10 heat settings
10 Heat Settings
steel bar
Steel Bar

85 watts of power is four times the power of standard curling irons for incredibly fast heatup and heat restoration allows Hot Tools irons to get hot... stay hot.

Electronics sensor in iron's barrel detects heat loss and signals heating system to boost iron's heat.

Constant heat - Barrel temperature remains constant curl after curl, allowing stylist to work quickly while attaining consistent results.

Ready to use in 60 seconds. And the iron continues to build heat even if it is used before selected temperature is reached.

10 variable heat settings - Built-in rheostat control provides 10 settings from low, for fine or chemically treated hair, to high for thick, coarse hair.

Superior mica heating system - Mica heater covers entire inner surface of barrel to distribute heat faster and more evenly than conventional irons.

A steel bar connects the barrel to the handle providing a more secure construction and prevents handle from bending under pressure applied during use.

* Powerful spring clamp
* Heavy duty long-life heating element
* 24K gold plated barrel
* Extra long cool tip
* Separate On/Off switch allows rheostat to "memorize" your favorite heat setting
* Foldaway safety stand
* Sure-grip comfort handle
* Heavy duty 8-foot tangle-proof swivel cord
* Pilot light
* Voltage: 120V
* 1 Year limited warranty


Available in 6 different barrel sizes:


* 3/8" barrel (model #1138V3) - for soft, tight curls, bangs and wisps.
* 5/8" barrel (model #1109V3) - for smooth, tight curls.
* 3/4" barrel (model #1101V3) - for all hair lengths.
* 1" barrel (model #1181V3) - creates full curls and waves.
* 1" barrel (model #1110V3) - creates large, loose curls.
* 1" barrel (model #1102V3) - for longer hair.
* 2" barrel (model #1111V3) - for extra volume and lift


I currently own 3 types of curling irons by HOT TOOLS ( I will review 1 for now)

<span class=
(Click on the picture to enlarge)

PROS:
*I must say that it gives me fabulous volumized curls especially now that I have my layers. I adore Kim Kardashian Gorgeous curls and this curling iron does give me almost like hers. I don't want to say its like hers because, come on she has her curls done my a professional hair stylist all the time! How I know? She said it herself on twitter!

*The curling iron heats up really fast and stay HOT evenly and for long time until I am done with my hair.

CONS:
*Ones I curl my hair and run my fingers through it to style I have to spray a lot of hair spray, because my the curl doesn't hold its shape for long time.

*The barrel is not small and curling iron can get really HOT, so you should be really cautions while using it, because I did burn myself and it wasn't cute! The Burn mark stays on your skin for quite a while.

Here is a video of the results it gives me:

Dont Get Scared!

4:06 PM Katherine H 3 Comments

I KNOW BETTER THEN LETTING MYSELF DO THIS!

So yesterday me and my close close close friend (SMART ONE) went to the beach and mind me it was my first time this year going to the beach in like almost 80 degrees weather. I applied her tanning oil that DID NOT have any SPF what so ever. I didn't think I will get burned this bad!

You guys have no idea what I went through last night I had a final to take at 6:15PM and I felt so dizzy so hot and nauseous I wanted to throw up and I though I will ca-lapse. Thanks GOD I got home safe.

Today is day two and below picture was taken today. It looks a little better. Since I put Sour Cream all over my body. YES SOUR CREAM....I will do a review really soon and explain what to use right after you get a sun burn. Its perfect since summer just began.

I am taking it easy today watching TV (Grounded For Life- On ABC FAMILY) and laying in bed.

THIS IS REALLY SCARY AND I LOOK LIKE A TOMATO!
