Masik Collegiate Fragrances

Press Sample
Scent, Memory, Emotion, these were some of the links that first led Katie Masik to create a line of individual fragrances. Masik came about from one of Katie's most memorable experiences, College. Working with top-notch perfumers and drawing inspiration from each schools unique elements such as school colors, campus style, trees, traditions and locations;  this line of men's and women's fragrances was born. Masik now offers original scents for nineteen major universities including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Mississippi, Florida State, Penn State and Texas A&M.

We are big Alabama fans at my house so I was very happy to see a fragrance for them, ROLL TIDE! The women's version is a nice feminine floral scent with a nice balance of the sweet fruit scents. I wore this fragrance everyday last week. The scents was delicate, but lasted throughout the day.

Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil Review

Press Sample
Hello beauties, if you have been reading this blog for a while you already know I have a deep love for beauty oils. Beauty Oils can serve as a fast way to deliver nutrients to the skin.  I was provided with a sample of the Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil by Olìe Biologique to test out. 
Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil Review
The Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil 
The Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil is lightweight and absorbed quickly. My skin was left soft and silky with a non greasy glow. After a few uses I noticed less congestion in my skin particularly around my nose and cheeks. This oil will not clog pores. If you haven't experimented with using facial skin oils, you are missing out. 

Ways to use
  • In place of moisturizer (my preferred way to use skin oils in the warmer months) add a few drops to your fingers and press into damp face; 
  • As a moisturizer boost, add a few drops in your hands and mix with your normal moisturizer;
  • For glowing skin, add 1-2 small drops to your foundation; 
  • For hands, rub a few drops into dry cuticles; 
  • For hair, apply a few drops into palms and rub over dry ends or to tame flyaways
  • For skin, massage into damp skin, stretch marks or scars.

Camellia Oil: Natural collagen plumps and fills fine lines & wrinkles, Vitamins A, B & E + Antioxidants help repair skin. 
Rosehip Oil: Omega 3 & 6 repair skin and aid in cell regeneration, helps fade scars & hyperpigmentaion, promotes collagen & elastin levels (firmer, smoother skin with increased elasticity).  
Blackcurrant Seed Oil: Assists with moisture retention, promotes healthy circulation, reduces inflammation and calms irritation. 
Evening Primrose Oil: Rejevenates, good for skin conditions such as rosacea and eczema. 
Rose Bulgar Oil: Balances dry skin and heals broken capillaries. 
Rose Geranium Oil:  Anti-inflammatory, promotes healing, astringent properties help clear dull oily skin. 

Overall I was very please with this oil. I have combination oily skin and this was fine for me, (I have dry spots in the winter) but as we head into the warmer months I think I would purchase the Huile Moderne 004 Hydrating Oil which is suited for normal to combination skin. 

The Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil is available in two sizes; the 5ml option (pictured above) retails for $15 the larger 30ml option retails for $68. 

DISCOUNT CODE: Ready to try the Huile Radicale 005 Rejuvenating Oil? Now through August 31, 2014 you can receive 20% off the purchase of the full size bottle using code OlieBB05. 

Have you ever used a skin oil?  I would love to hear what your experience was.

Coolway True Smooth Review

Press Sample
I have been a little hard on my hair the past few months, blow dying and flat ironing more frequently then I usually do. I was given the opportunity through BeautyStat to test out the True Smooth spray. The True Smooth spray is said to help you achieve straight hair without using a flat iron.

My hair naturally curly, which means getting it straight is quite a process. I make attempts to limit heat styling when I can to reduce the possibility of damage. The Amino Lock MAB molecule is activated by your blow dryer to hold your style from the inside out as you dry. True Smooth is supposed to give you the same smooth, frizz free results you would get after flatironing without having to do that step. So smooth, frizz free hair without damage.
