 Calvin Klein Reveal

In the bloggers world, I’ve been seeing the Calvin Klein Reveal perfume blowin up all of the websites that I read. With all the great reviews and raves I decided to go out and finally get it. Plus, the bottle itself is and unique shape. It is a curved-like square container. A great new addition to my perfume collection.

I haven’t bought a Calvin Klein perfume since Escape. I loved that perfume since I was a teenager. but since then, when Christian Dior came out with its Hypnotic Poison perfume that was my signature scent.

Now that Calvin Klein has come out with the new Reveal perfume, I will be switching up my perfume every other day with Calvin Klein’s Reveal perfume and my oh so favorite Christian Dior Hypnotic Poison perfume.

I feel so feminine when I wear the both of them. Not together of course.

Calvin Klein’s Reveal is characterized by intriguing duality, unexpected freshness, and enveloping warmth, reveal defines a new olfactive category – the solar oriental. a sleek modern hook enveloped in a luxurious accord of floral woody gourmand.

  • top notes: raw salt signature, pink pepper, black pepper
  • mid notes: orris, solar accord, ambergris
  • end notes: sandalwood, cashmeran, musk

Reveal is available as a 30ml, 50ml and 100ml edp spray, a 200ml body lotion, a 200ml shower gel and a 10ml rollerball.

You can purchase Calvin Klein Reveal perfume at Sephora, Macys, BX, Amazon, and of course the Calvin Klein website.

Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Cuticle oil pen

I’m glad I found this baby at Target! as you all may know I love to do my fingernails. I paint the constantly. I am like OCD when it comes to my fingernails.having my finger nails polished just makes me feel just a little more feminem.during the week, I’m all that doubt in my Air Force uniform. So when it comes to having a little individuality in my uniform I like to have my hair up in a certain way, a little bit of makeup on my face, and most definitely have my nails polished.

I feel extremely happy anytime that I’m hoping someone and they complement my fingernails. I try my damndest to make sure that I keep them nice, polished, healthy looking, and filed.

One of the great things about the Sally Hansen maximum growth cuticle pen is that you can throw it in your purse or even keep it in your pocket for any time that you just want to whip it out and start oiling up your cuticles.

It has a semi-almond like aroma to it.

It soaks into your skin and cuticles which is good because you don’t want to be running around with oily fingertips.

This is what Sally Hansen has to say about this beautiful product.

  • Helps promote healthy-looking cuticles and nails instantly
  • Deeply hydrates and seals in moisture
  • Purse portable!
  • Nourishes dry, rough cuticles! Innovative Pen Applicator with no-mess, no-spill brush tip, delivers just the right amount of moisture treatment just where you want it.

I’ve been blessed, I don’t know how, but my nails tend to be super strong and grow super fast. So fast that I have to file them down every week before I go to work. In the military we have to have our nails no longer than 1/4″ past the fingertip.

Sally Hansen Maximum Growth Cuticle Pen is by far the best one, especially for the price that I’ve purchased. Plus I love the fact that I can keep them anywhere around me. I can keep them in my drawers, at the office, in my purse, and in my pocket if I want too.

For only $7, this is a great on-the-go, take with you anywhere you please cuticle pen.

Their Australian tea tree plantation has received awards for its industry-leading, conservation farming practices. They have the smallest carbon footprint of any producer of pure and natural Tea Tree Oil. The Australian Parliament has invited them to represent farming operators at a Carbon Farming Incentive forum. They were one of the first producers to be accredited under the Australian Tea Tree Industry Association Code of Practice. The nutrition program for the Tea Tree plants is based on organic fertilizers. When using pesticides (a necessity to ensure the health of the plants) they employ a shield sprayer to minimize any contact with the plant. Whenever possible natural crop protection products are used. Learn About the Brand Apothecary Extracts was founded in 2013 because, as consumers, we were tired of not knowing what was in our essential oils. There are so many vendors that dilute their essential oils, or use unsafe extraction processes which contaminate the final product. The only way to be sure what is in your essential oils is to test them. But the tests are expensive so most brands don’t want to pay for this. Or they don’t want you to know the results!

They will only carry essential oils that we are 100% confident represent the best quality and potency available. And we’ll show you the test results to back it up.

Apothecary Extracts is committed to selling only the purest essential oils, and we have the tests to prove it. Available for purchase exclusively on Amazon.com.

WHAT I USED THIS TEA TREE OIL FOR:

  • Acne
  • Mosquitoes
  • Redness on skin
  • Toe fungus on my pinky toes (I know right, GROSS!)
  • Scalp
  • Moisturizer ( I made my own little moisturizer cocktail)

First be warned by the super strong Tea Tree Oil scent. It is 100% Tea Tree Oil, so you should expect as much.

As I stated earlier, I wanted to try this for my acne scars, the redness on my skin, the yucky toe fungus that I have on my pinky toes, and for my scaly scalp. I also did notice when I was outside hanging out that there were a ton of mosquitos just sucking the blood out of me. I know that some essential oils are like a natural repellent for mosquitoes. So I gave it a go and it actually worked. So that’s a plus.

Since the aroma is super strong, I made my own little moisturizer concoction and added a few drops of the tea tree oil with it. the aroma wasn’t all that strong anymore but you could still tell that it was there. And it did its job.

With this huge 4 ounce bottle you can get so many uses out of it. The possibilities are endless.

When you go into beauty stores, on each aisle you will see a product that has some type of tea tree oil in it. So that has something to say about the great uses that you can do with this product.

WEN Hair Cleansing Condition Review

WEN Hair Conditioning Review

WEN Hair Conditioning Review

One of my late nights that I was up watching infomercials, WEN’s came on with the beautiful Alyssa Milano spokeswoman doing her thing and hyping how wonderful the WEN Cleansing Conditioning.

I was a sucker and bought into it. It was late and I’ve always wanted to try it out. I took the plunge and got my credit card out and bought it. It doesn’t help that they also add all types of extras to lore you in.

wen hair care

For this posting I will only talk about the WEN Cleansing Conditioning hair product.

 They say to use it as so

CLEANSING YOUR HAIR IN 3 EASY STEPS:
Step 1:Rinse hair thoroughly. Apply WEN® into your palms and rub together. Use 10-16 pumps for short hair, 16-24 for medium length hair and 24-32 pumps for long hair. If your hair is longer/thicker you may need to increase the amount of pumps.

Step 2:Apply to scalp and hair, adding a splash of water to evenly distribute. WEN® has no harsh detergents or sodium lauryl sulfate, so it won’t lather. Massage thoroughly into hair and leave on for the remainder of your shower.

Step 3:Rinse thoroughly and completely, massaging scalp and running fingers through to the ends.

ADDITIONAL USAGE TIPS:
Apply 1/2 to 1 pump depending on hair length and texture as a leave-in conditioner to soaking wet hair. For best results, we highly suggest you cleanse, rinse and repeat, using half the recommended pumps for the first cleanse, and the remaining half for the second cleanse. Unlike many ordinary shampoos, you may find you don’t need to cleanse as often.

But in my reality:

Only use as many pumps as you think YOUR hair needs. I have super long hair and I there’s no way I would use the recommended 24-32 pumps. I’m not in the shower to get my forearms a workout. I use a good 4-5 pumps then my hair is saturated with WEN in it.

Make sure before you add WEN in your hair, that your hair is drenching wet. If not, it will be hard to spread this thick conditioning on your hair.

I’ve heard horror stories that WEN has made their hair fall out. Thank God that hasn’t happened to me.

My hair does feel super soft after I get out of the shower and I’m loving the Sweet Almond Mint aroma it has.

The one thing I had to get use to was that it doesn’t have that bubbly lather.

Would I repurchase this?

I doubt it, just because of the cost. It is quite steep for my liking.

I know there are others out there on the market that you can get at supermarkets, department stores that are easily assessable for quite cheaper.

I bought this because I’m constantly dying my hair and wanted to have my color last longer.

Have you used the WEN hair products?  What are your thought on the WEN system?
