Temptalia Asks You

What body products do you use regularly? Do you have a favorite body cream/lotion? A fan of sunless tanner? What makes your body bangin’?

I think I have a zillion and one body creams/lotions in my cabinets, so I just pull them out at random. I use Lush’s shower gel or Philosophy’s shower gel. I have to say… the body doesn’t get much else, LOL.

SCENARIO: My hair gets greasy after three days, but it never did this before.  I used to be able to go five days without washing it!  Do you think it might be too warm in my room during the winter?  My hair is very long, so I’m scared to wash it too often for fear it will get damaged or I will experience hair loss (it has happened to me twice in the past).  Do you think I need to get a better shampoo, maybe something from Redken?  Help!

Prescriptives Instant Gratification Skin Renewal Peel ($45.00)

Get instant gratification for tired, lackluster skin with this all-in-one dermabrasion-peel treatment that improves clarity, renews tone and immediately uncovers a smoother, more radiant complexion. Oil-free. Non-acnegenic. Ophthalmologist and dermatologist-tested. No fragrance.

GET THIS PRODUCT. I am rarely impressed so much by a product that I am compelled to write the review immediately after using it. Seriously, as soon as this product was rinsed off my face with lukewarm water, I was like, “OH MY GOD!!” I ran to my boyfriend and made him feel how utterly soft and smooth my face was (of course, I made him wash his hands before he did this!). I couldn’t stop feeling my own face, because I just could not get over how amazing my skin looked and felt right after using it. I really appreciate a product that is honest about what it can do, and I was skeptical of this living up to its name of “Instant Gratification,” but I am quite happily proven wrong. I did wait 48 hours before writing up the review, just in case there were any side-effects–there were none. Just smooth skin! I can handle that!

Instantly your skin will soften, feel smoother, and even look a bit brighter, healthier. You would think with such amazing results that there would be a complicated application process, but you would be completely off the mark! Put a little product on your finger tips (a dab will do you) and massage onto damp skin in circular motions for about thirty seconds. Leave the mask on for five minutes. Wet fingertips with lukewarm water and massage in circulation motions for an additional thirty seconds. Rinse off using lukewarm water and pat face dry with a clean towel. That’s it! Now you have ultra silky soft skin that will be the envy of every person around you. You only need to use this product once a week, so please don’t let the price tag put you off. I think I will get at least 3 months worth of applications out of the tube (if not more), because you only need three pea-sizes worth (left cheek, right cheek, then forehead/nose/chin) or less.

Definitely check this product out if you have the chance; it is something I wholly recommend–so much so that it is now a staple in my beauty regimen.

Temptalia Asks You

Are you excited for Fashion Week? Fashion Week has been gearing up, and it is really about to go into full swing in the next day or two. Do you keep up? Do you live for this time of the year or are you completely bored with it?

I am, but you should all know why! :)

Hi everyone!  I know there have been numerous requests for video tutorials, and I expect sometime in the future it may be an option, but I was wondering if this kind of video tutorial would satisfy you in the meanwhile.  Please let me know what you think, and if you’d like to see other tutorials in the same format (but they will always be in a still format with step-by-step text, as I personally feel this is a good way to learn).

Edit: I think I must have confused you all… this would NOT replace the existing all text tutorials, I am just wondering if these are worth doing.  I’m fully aware that it is not live action, but it is currently not feasible to do something of that nature for the time being, which is why I’m trying to offer something in between.  So please tell me if you would like to see these in addition, not in place of, the existing tutorial format.  Thank you!
