Exfolimate Face & Body Exfoliator Review

Press Sample I have an exfoliation tool to share with you today, one that I will admit I thought might be a waste of money when I received it. The Exfolimate Face & Body Exfoliator is designed in Australia.  It is a gentle tool to exfoliate the face and body and is designed for daily exfoliation and to allow your skin to clear naturally, without all the scrubs and peels. It helps transforms the surface of the skin to be smooth and clear. The Exfolimate package has 2 blade like devices.  The small one is for your face and the slightly larger one is for your body.  The blades are extremely dull, and in the 25 days of testing it, I never cut myself or had any uncomfortable feeling with it.  The triangular plastic pieces are easy to grip and small enough to be comfortable to hold, but large enough…

Royie 10 Piece Vegan Makeup Brush Set Review

Disclaimer Let’s talk makeup brushes!  Remember a LONG time ago when you thought those sponge applicators that came with cosmetics were great?  Then you upgraded to makeup brushes and it put a whole new spin on makeup? Yeah I still remember that. BUT I also remember the first time I splurged on a makeup brush.  I thought the price reflected how amazing it would be (you know that saying “You get what you pay for”?) I was devastated when my new $70 brush was a complete dud.  It shed everywhere, was a little on the scratchy side because those shedding bristles were too stiff.  It was just a disaster. One thing I have learned over the years is that sometimes you really do get what you pay for.  But other times, you can actually find a steal of an item and barely have to splurge to get quality. That’s what…

Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler by Bella & Bear Review

Disclaimer I’m almost ashamed to admit I haven’t used an eyelash curler in years!  The last one I used was just horrible and felt like it was about to fall apart while I was clamping down on my lashes.  I gave the Eye & Mighty Eyelash Curler by Bella & Bear a try, and I may just have to use it regularly now. The design of the eyelash curler was really nice.  The handle was similar to the design of cutting shears in a salon which made them comfortable to hold.  It felt incredibly sturdy as well, so when I was clamping down on the lashes, it didn’t feel like it might give out. Here’s the part I’m not use to.  The pad on eyelash curlers generally need to be replaced regularly but not on this pair.  The pad is meant to last the lifetime of the curler if cared…

Majestic Bombay Cuticle Pusher and Nail Cleaning Tool Review

Disclaimer While I do try to get a nice mix of beauty items reviewed and featured on my blog, you can tell that it does have a heavy nail focus.  I do my best to keep my nails looking their best for these features and I’m about to show you a tool that has been helping me with that lately. The Majestic Bombay Stainless Steel Cuticle Pusher and Nail Cleaning Tool has been getting a lot of love from me lately. It has 2 sides, one for gently pushing your cuticles back and one side for cleaning the gunk out from under your nails. This is the cuticle pusher side.  I use Trind Cuticle remover on my cuticles and for awhile have been using orange sticks to gently scrape away the cuticle or pushing it back a bit.  This tool made it so much quicker and easier than any orange…

Majestic Bombay Slanted Eyebrow Tweezer Review

Disclaimer I have a large collection of tweezers in my house for a lot of reasons.  Some are for nail art, some are for my eyebrows and some I have were just complete duds that I bought, used once and never touched again. I received Majestic Bombay Slant Tweezers to review, and they are definitely not duds! I cannot tell you how many slant tweezers I have purchased over the years that just would NOT grip the fine eyebrow hairs and pluck those suckers out.  It’s utterly ridiculous.  These tweezers did an amazing job though. The Majestic Slant Tweezers feature: Perfectly aligned tips Tips are hand filed Lifetime sharpening guarantee Meticulously calculated tension ensures tips close evenly and firmly with no gaps, creating the cleanest, most advanced pulling power The choice of make-up artists, models, celebrities and the most discerning consumers, this cult classic has been setting the standard for…
