Thursday, November 13, 2014

*This review was made possible by a press sample received from Murad as part of their Ambassador program, all opinions are my own* So as it turns out I am under consideration to be a Brand Ambassador for Murad!

Product Review: Spa Sonic
Tuesday, November 04, 2014

*This review was made possible by a press sample received from Spa Sonic, all opinions are my own* I have always been a huge Clarisonic Mia fan, my husband bought me one as an anniversary present a few years ago and it has been a staple in my skin care routine ever since. However this isn't something I would have purchased on my own because the price is just too high to justify it. Which is why I jumped at the chance to receive this sample for review.

Product Review: Redken Color Rebel Temporary Hair Makeup
Sunday, October 12, 2014

 This review is sponsored by Redken and BrandBacker, all opinions are my own.   Thanks to Brandbacker and Redken I was able to score press samples of their new Color Rebel hair makeup.  I always want to color my hair these insane cool colors but due to my day job at an investment bank I have to stick to more traditional hair color variations. I've always been interested in these temporary hair color options but unfortunately my dark hair doesn't really accept them. Needless to say I was super stoked to try out these colors but didn't really think they would work at all for me. Key benefits of the new Redken Color Rebel sticks are: Goes on easy, dries fastWon't smudge off ...
