DriOff Gel ($23.00) is a topical gel formula to keep hands, feet, underarms, and skin folds dry (I can’t believe the product box says that). It is a product geared towards those who suffer from excessive perspiration (or, you know, when you go somewhere that’s incredibly hot and humid–perhaps Florida!–where your sweat glands get confused and go crazy).

In the package, you get two 1.32 oz tubes, which makes it easy to toss one in the purse for on-the-go emergency sweatathons. One thing I didn’t like about this was the scent — too clinical/laboratory smelling. Does it work? I would say it works fairly well. I went through an hour of tennis, and I found that in areas where I tended to sweat more, they were drier, and some where even dry completely.

Make sure you apply a thin layer of the product, because if it is too thick, you’ll feel tightness around the area (I tested it on my arm and got an oops! too much amount). Less is more, and they do mean a “pea size amount” when they list their directions!

BAN Invisible Solids ($2.99) in Island Falls reminds me of a tropical getaway full of sun and sandy beaches. The scent is fresh, very reminiscent of late spring and early summer, lots of floral notes. With top notes of water greens and citrus with woodsy bottom notes, this scent is youthful and fun. I liked this because it wore well throughout the day, and it gave me no reason to worry about sweating or getting smelly despite being active. I have certain standards for any product that goes under my arms–soft, lightly scented, leaves little to no tracks behind, absorbs quickly, and lasts at least half the day. This one worked on all accounts!

What do you think of organic beauty products? Are you drawn to them, prefer them, or do not care either way? Do you feel that if it says organic that it’s better for you?

I do find my biggest issue with products labeled organic is that they smell unpleasant. I also am concerned whether how organic products are, since regulation of the term is not strict from what I remember.

This is part of a tutorial that is “coming soon,” about how to go from daytime look to darker daytime look to subtle evening look to dramatic evening look. Yesterday, I posted the subtle evening look. The difference? I added Silver Ring eyeshadow to the middle lid with Vex all over the inner lid.

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow on inner lid, Bisque eyeshadow on middle of lid, Soft Brown eyeshadow on outer lid and crease, Brun eyeshadow in outer crease, Carbon eyeshadow in the outer crease, Silver Ring eyeshadow on middle lid, Vex eyeshadow on inner lid, Blanc Type eyeshadow above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, Brun eyeshadow on brows, and Plushblack mascara on lashes. I wore True Romantic blush on cheeks with Tenderdusk beauty powder to highlight. I had Sweetie lipstick with Dreamy lipglass on my lips.

Temptalia Asks You

Are you a blush addict, or is just one color all you really need? Do you find that you only use a few blushes or that you are constantly on the hunt for more?

I seem to be drawn to blushes, but truthfully, I definitely use a handful regularly, while the rest go ignored.
