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 ...

Product Review: Belli Skincare Prep and Cleanse
Tuesday, August 26, 2014

I'm currently on a major health over haul, one of the first things I did was see a dermatologist. I have combination skin that gets extremely oily, I was prescribed some creams but one thing the doctor told me was I needed to invest in a quality facial cleanser that is meant for sensitive oily acne  prone skin. I asked her for recommendations but she couldn't offer any that might work with my very sensitive skin. As always I am sent major help from some unexpected places.
