Rimini Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Professional Hair Dryer Review

Rimini Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Professional Hair Dryer Review

Anyone that knows me knows I am obsessed with hair. I have been forever. People often ask if I am a hairdresser.  When I was approached to review the Rimini Tourmaline Ionic Ceramic Professional Hair Dryer I literally jumped at the chance. My hair loves a nice blowdryer and I knew right away that Xtava would be a quality company.

     I love  that it is available on Amazon which makes things so much easier. Do not let the affordable price of $29.99 fool you as this is not a cheap blow dryer by any means. 

This dryer gives a whole new meaning to the term " lightweight" . I legit have never blown my hair out with something so light. My best friend is a hairdresser and could not believe how much this thing weighed.  She is thinking of purchasing it to use on clients as well. I am trying to convince her to switch from her ultra heavy blow dryer to this and I think I may have finally put the bug in her head last night after she used this for the third time . She said she is waiting to see how it lasts before she purchases and I told her from past reviews I have read as well as what I am going on now , combined with the price that I have a good feeling about it. Only time will tell though. 

     The Rimini has three heat levels as well as two power levels.  It also has a Cold Shot button which I love. This combined with my medium sized round brush and some Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry primer honestly my hair has never looked better. 

As you can see my hair is pretty short , but not short enough to not need a blow dryer. In fact blow drying my hair is one essential to my daily routine and I feel naked if I do not do it. I actually am so in love with my new Rimini dryer that I just sold my older blowdryer on the yard sale site this past weekend. ( And anyone that really knows me knows I had a sick obsession to that last blow dryer ~!

Thursday, December 18, 2014 Review and Clothing Giveaway

There is nothing I love more than a good deal. I have always been a savvy shopper but I happen to love expensive brands and that does not always fit in my budget. For as long as I can remember I have always waited till the outfit I want goes on sale, or I have a coupon, discount code or whatnot. I also learned to love consignment stores and I get a thrill out of going through every item in the consignment store and looking at the tag to see who makes it. I always think its a big score when I find some of my favorite brands on the rack. I think its an even bigger score if that item is new with the tags still on it. While I love checking out second hand stores I do not always have the time to go ( and trust me I need a good hour minimum if I am even thinking of going in some of these stores).

      I had come across this website when looking for items to purchase at a decent price. I immediately was hooked and fascinated by what this site has . The first thing I noticed were the awesome authentic brand named items that they had listed for yep you guessed it...only $15 each. Then I noticed they even had a BOGO section. ( double score ) The search menu was my best friend cuse I easily typed in my two favorite words : VICTORIAS SECRET and immediately came across these items.

That was it....
I was sold. 

Now if you know me you know I did not stop at just the Victorias Secret items. Nope , I went on to find some other awesome clothing. I got ten items for $95.62 . Half the items still had tags on them , brand spanking new.  They are able to do this and give you the amazing prices they do by buying items in bulk directly from the retailer at the end of the season. ( which is why there is usually one of each item in each particular size )  They also have some skilled shoppers who are awesome at searching vintage stores and estate sales around the country. I have to give a big shoutout to them cuse I am extremely happy with my order.   I got so many items for under $100. If I purchased the VS hoodies at a VS store I would have paid $100 for TWO of them. You really can NOT go wrong with this site . They also have a loyalty program where you can earn points to get credit to buy even more fabulous clothing, when you shop there or refer a friend.  Also right now shipping is free with orders over $45. WHATS NOT TO LOVE????

     I have some news for you. is sponsering a giveaway right here on my blog. 
What's up for grabs?? You tell me...cuse they are letting you PICK ANY TWO TIMES at NO COST!

Dr Song 50% Lactic Acid Face Peel Review


From the manufacturer:
50% Lactic Acid Face Peel
“Chemical peels were once reserved exclusively for the doctor’s office, a place that can sometimes be scary — and expensive. Today, chemical peels have evolved to include take-home peels and kits, allowing you to reap their benefits in the privacy of your own home, while relaxing in your favorite bathrobe.
Lactic acid peels are just one type of chemical peel, but they are preferred by many — again, because of lactic acid’s reputation as a gentler alpha hydroxy acid. You can use peels to improve wrinkles, some types of acne and discolorations on your skin.” [WebMD]

Please look at the website Here

I was nervous to do a peel at home as I usually get facials strictly and was afraid of how my skin would react to this. I am very glad that I gave this a chance. I have acne scars from a teen, and since using this I have noticed my face has become much softer and the scars seemed to have diminish some.  If you would like to purchase this please go to Amazon and get it for just $14.99. Thats much cheaper then a facial.

New Exfolimate, Your Best Mate for Silky Smooth Skin Review #facebodytool

New Exfolimate, Your Best Mate for Silky Smooth Skin Review #facebodytool

  • What is Exfolimate? This new revolutionary personal exfoliation tools for the face & body to gently exfoliate prior to any skincare, shaving or hair removal treatments. The secret is its patented laser formed edge with micro grooves which combine with warm water in the bath or shower to exfoliate gently, naturally, quickly & easily. Enjoy fingertip controlled exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, oils, pollution, dirt and grime, but not the hairs....Exfolimate is not a shaver.In one step you can clean, stimulate and smooth the skin! It is chemical free, safe, hygienic, and easy to use on the face or the whole body. It helps clear the pores, smooth away dead skin cells and rough, bumpy or dry patches of skin. Whether its dry, sensitive, oily skin or blemishes. Exfolimate can help. Also great for any shaving, waxing and problems with ingrown. It can also aid the absorption of all your skin care products and smoother skin also means your makeup or sunless tan goes on better! You receive two ergonomically designed personal face & body tools, cords & a comprehensive directions brochure.

I thought that this would be a great tool to use before I get a Spray Tan as it is always best to make sure your skin is nice and smooth before you get a spray.  

Exfolimate is made to gently exfoliate the face and body and is precision designed for daily exfoliation and naturally skin clearing results.
Exfolimate transforms the surface of your skin.

The Exfolimate removes the top layer of skin and exposes healthy, new skin. It is a great tool to use all year long not matter if you have dry winter skin or if you have dryer sun burnt summer skin.

Each Exfolimate consists of a two-piece Face and Body combination. The smaller tool is used to easily exfoliate the face and neck. It is designed to reach the small crevices around the nose and even behind the ears. The larger body tool quickly exfoliates the arms, legs, chest, and back.

I was nervous to use this at first cuse of what looked like little blades. However I just made sure to press gently and I am so glad I gave this tool a chance. My spray tan looks great nice and even and smooth. I also use it on the bottom of my feet for nice smooth feet. This will be a favorite of mine during the summer as thats often why I dish out money on pedicures. 

You can find where to  purchase this tool here .
