HANA Shine Shield Thermal Hair Protectant

If you straighten your hair, either with a flat iron or a blowdryer, you need something to protect your hair from the heat and also add shine.  I really haven't come across a better hair serum for this purpose than the one from Hana.  Hana Shine Shield is an amazing product from a hair product line that is committed to safe, effective heat styling. Shine Shield is a thermal serum that can be used as a leave-in conditioner - it is lightweight and is not greasy.  It also protects and strengthens your  hair whether you use it with a flat iron, hair dryer or alone. Shine Shield contains the natural magic of Jojoba oil for its superb qualities of deep moisturization, fast absorption into hair follicles and scalp, and unparalleled shimmer & shine.

My hair is frizzy on it's own so I definitely have to use some product and either straighten or blow dry my hair just so that it looks normal - and nice!  I've tried so many many hair protectants, sprays, mousse and serums, but never got the shine. I used this for the first time the other day and its exactly what I've been looking for in a hair product.

Another huge plus, it smells great and I cant believe how nice it makes my hair look and feel. I am so tired of trying all of these products that smell bad and are either drying or sticky and leave your hair feeling stiff or dull.

Do yourself a favor and visit HANA online at  Take a look at this and their other great products as well like their styling tools.  I have their hair dryer and it is probably the best hair dryer I have ever had, I love it!

RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night Cream

I saw a commercial for this anti-aging night time cream and figured I would try it out.  I was running low on face cream anyway and figured this would be a good time to try something new.  This deep wrinkle cream from RoC is Hypoallergenic Oil-free Non-comedogenic (so it won't clog pores) and is dermatologist tested.  It claims to be an intensive anti-wrinkle treatment that works through the night, visibly reducing expression lines and deep wrinkles.

After using this cream for a few days, my face and neck were itching because they were so dry.  While this cream goes on smooth and isn't sticky, it is very drying.  I don't have sensitive skin, in fact, it's a bit oily.  So, you would think the drying effect would help with my oiliness.  Instead, it actually made my face very dry and irritated.  If I were to have sensitive skin, I can only imagine how irritated my face would have been.

While this cream is not too expensive, it just didn't work for me.  The ingredients are quite strong and drying.  It might work for some people, as I did see other good reviews online, but not for me.

Too Faced Sweet Dreams Makeup Collection

Too Faced  Cosmetics has a beautiful new compact that is a holiday color collection of Too Faced's most popular shades and luxurious formulas.  This fabulous set of makeup consists 15 pigment-drenched ethereal shadows, a full-size Shadow Insurance primer for crease-proof, long-wearing benefits, two beautiful blushes, a sunny bronzer and a warm, golden highlighter for the flawless complexion. The colors in this compact are just great, you can create so many different looks that you definitely won't get bored with this set for a long time.  The packaging is also beautiful, as this set is packaged in a large, mirrored, decorative palette with a pull-out drawer containing get-the-look cards that help you put different looks together.

I am just so happy that I bought this - It was definitely worth the money.  The eyeshadow colors are perfect and there are endless looks that you can create from neutral daytime looks to sexy evening looks.  The makeup quality is also very high.  Also, the colors seem like they would work well with almost any skin tone.  

I have been buying combination sets from all different brands for many years and this one is by far one of the best I've ever had.  Besides the beautiful packaging, everything in the set is extremely pigmented and worth the money.  You should definitely pick up of these up immediately, if you don't get one for yourself it's also a great gift for the holidays!
