China Glaze’s Rodeo Diva Collection is STUNNING!

China Glaze’s Rodeo Diva Collection really caught my eye. I haven’t gone on a nail polish spending spree in sometime, but I just couldn’t get these out of my head. There were so many colors that called to me. In reality, I didn’t fall in love with as many as I wanted to, but I did find several that I can’t wait to do full manis/pedis with!

MAC Seasonal Peach Nail Lacquer from Cremesheen Swatch

Here’s MAC’s Seasonal Peach Nail Lacquer from Cremesheen in a quickie swatch. This polish definitely needs a base laid down and probably three thinner coats would work better than two thicker coats. I find it a little pinker than the promo photo, personally, but there is some peachiness in it, I suppose (perhaps, more visible in person than in the photo).

Ojon’s Tawaka “The Ball” Scrubs, Cleanses, and Feels Luxurious!

Ojon’s Tawaka “The Ball” ($65.00) is a cleanser and full-body polish. Inspiration behind the product comes from a 1000 year-old cleansing ball only available in the Tawaka villages in Central America. Ojon’s version contains Savage Cacao (antioxidants), Ojon Oil (restorative), Alula Leaf Extract (anti-irritation), Passion Fruit Oil (Omega-6), Swa oil (moisturizing). Each ball takes two days to produce, and each one contains as many antioxidants as would be found in 2,834 pounds of blueberries.

Wax On, Wax Off: Parissa Makes At-Home Waxing Easy

You know how people always recommend that you get a professional bikini wax done before attempting it yourself at-home? Well, LISTEN TO THEM! I am telling you from experience that this is probably the best way to go about it. You will see how it should be done; you get a real, live visual experience and can file it away for future use. It is not to say that my at-home bikini waxing experience was regrettable, but it did not go as smoothly as it could have gone.

Soap & Glory Earns Victory In My Beauty Space

Soap & Glory is my new favorite budget bath & body line. In my shower product post, I told you how I adore their Flake Away Body Polish. It’s an awesome salt-based scrub that works wonders on your skin, gently exfoliating and sloughing off all of the dead skin cells. I also tried their Righteous Body Butter Lotion, which has the same scent as their Flake Away scrub. I often will apply this rich body lotion after my shower, because it’s quite moisturizing, and it reinforces the scent and smell of the scrub. I actually got my boyfriend to use this on his rough spots (elbows, mostly), who would have thought? I like the products I’ve tried from the brand, and I hope to try out more in the future. I know many of you expressed an interest in more drugstore reviews/coverage, so consider this in that direction :)

Gillette Venus Embrace Gets Super Close

A few weeks ago, I tested Gillette’s Venus Embrace, which is a five-bladed razor. It has a “Protective Ribbon of Moisture” that goes around the razor head, which basically helps make the shave go smoother both during and afterwards. It also has a ShowerPod, which has a suction cup allowing it to attach to your shower wall. The ShowerPod is of decent size, such that it can hold extra cartridges so you can grab them whilst in the shower. No more of those, “Ugh! I forgot to change the blade!” moments.

Last time I wrote about razors, I raved about the Schick Quattro. I know what the first question you have for me is: which one is better?

Well, find out! Continue reading “Gillette Venus Embrace Gets Super Close”
