Hi Love!

Recently, I’ve been receiving so many compliments on my hair. I’ve been meaning to do an updated hair post– so, here it is. I’ve started using this new hair care system by Loreal: Ever Pure. In just a few washes I’ve noticed the amazing effects it’s had on my hair.

For many years, I’ve tried many different hair products from high end to drugstore brands you name it. My hair has been thru the it all over the years. Plus, I’ve colored my hair just about every color (except for purple, blue, pink) and my hair has seen it’s fair share of products. So, I guess it’s safe to say my hairs been fried, dyed, dull and damaged through the years. In the last couple of years, I’ve taken better care of my hair (using less heat tools, no abrasive color treatments etc….) and I’ve noticed a huge difference.  I’ve changed up my hair products too. For the most part, I’ve used salon suggested, high end hair products up. It’s only in the last 3 years or so I’ve changed things up. Ever since I discovered Loreal’s hair care products my hair has gone thru a tremendous changes and in the most amazing ways possible. Their newest hair care line is absolutely amazing and heres why.

The shampoo + conditioner moisturize your hair and leave it smelling fresh and invigorating. It’s formula combines rosemary and floral botanicals which smells incredible. Another reason that makes Loreal’s Ever Pure products so great: they’re sulfate-free, paraben-free, free of harsh salts, vegan and dye free. Both products have a rich and creamy consistency that isn’t heavy but rather it lathers on smoothly throughout your hair. This system specifically is great for color treated hair (which is what I have) and it keeps color pure for up to 4 weeks. The last time I colored my hair was back in November and up until now my color is still looking vibrant and fresh as if it was done yesterday. My hair has never looked better. It feels and looks more hydrated, soft, silky, smooth and looks oh so fabulous as you can see.

The 10 in 1 elixir is another amazing product from Loreal. All three products have done wonders for my hair. The elixir specifically helps restore hairs vitality in as little as 1 week. After using the elixir, I noticed a huge difference in my hair almost immediately. My hair has stayed healthy, reflecting my radiant hair color even though my hair was colored months ago. These are all the things its’ done for my hair and what it’s proven do to for hair in general:

1. Nourish
2. Hydrate
3. Soothe
4. Repair
5. Density
6. Smooth
7. Texture
8. Strength
9. Softness
10. Shine

Apply on to towel-dried hair and scalp in sections. Gently work into hair to evenly distribute. Do not rinse. Style as usual. My hair looks and feels healthy and fresh. I can wash my hair knowing my hair will look great after each wash. We all want to have that “after salon visit” hair ( gorgeous salon blown out hair) everyday especially after a full nights rest. But rest assure, after using Loreal’s Ever Pure products your hair will look and feel incredible. Let’s be honest, I don’t know about you, when my hair looks that good it not only makes me feel amazing but gives me an added boost in my confidence too. No matter if your hair is dry, color treated, curly, you’ll love these products just as much as I do and you’ll see what it can do you. So #freeyourhair from all your hair worries and try these life-changing products. Get the gorgeous hair you’ve always wanted that will not only look amazing but you’ll feel amazing too!!

Beauty with SFB: All About Chanel and the Le Lift System

Posted on: December 6, 2016

 

I’m always on the search for new products that help with anti-aging, firming and lifting. Let’s face it, as much as I love make up, theres only so much make up can do.  I’m very in tune with my skin, and I listen to my skin and make sure I treat it well too. I’m always reading and researching ways to keep my skin clean, clear, hydrated, refreshed, rejuvenated, well the list goes on. Now that I’m in my 30’s I’ve been adding more products that contain ingredients that aid in anti-aging and firming. Although, I’m still considered young and my skin looks youthful and fresh, this is how I’d like to keep it looking for as long as I can. My philosophy is why not start early, and kick the aging process in the butt with the best skincare products known to man.  Your skin should age gracefully not prematurely. We all have beauty secret, some are worth telling and sharing. Here are mine and you’ll want to try these. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!!!

I discovered these products when I watched one of my favorite Youtuber’s:  HudaBeauty’s beauty video. She talked about Chanel Le Lift products and she swore by them. She spoke very highly of Chanel and the  positive results she’s seen in her skin and they were quite noticeable. {How could you not LOVE chanel, I mean from their handbags, clothing, fragrances, make up and skincare you can’t go wrong, EVER!} After seeing the results on Huda and after hearing her speak so highly about the products I wanted to try these out for myself. And I did just that. Although, it was hard to get my hands on the massage tool. It was released overseas early last year but not many were released in the US. I searched high and low for this tool and had no luck anywhere. I was told that the US were suppose to get this hot new beauty tool back in April/May but that never happened. It wasn’t until I went to the UK where I found it and bought it. I’m so happy I did!

This unique massage tool was created to boost the effectiveness of the Le Lift cream. This simple tool helps the skin become more receptive to the benefits of moisturizers, serums even facial oils. It’s easy to use and  fits the contours of any face shape. The tool is suppose to help massage the product into your skin evenly while stimulating the skin and lifting the muscles. Reducing the signs of wrinkles and aging effects. Leaving your skin and face feeling firmer, looking youthful and lifted. It’s best to work from your chin to your jawbone and across your cheekbones. Here’s a great tip: Place the tool in the fridge so that when you apply the tool to your skin the cooling effect helps speed up drainage.
