Billionaire Teeth Whitening Pen review

Happy November! I have been testing out a lot of new beauty products this month, so I am excited to share my favorites with you in this monthly round-up, beauty bag post! Of course, I have several nail polish hues I am in love with too, you can check out my Chanel review, Dior review, and Londontown Gel Genius review.

Now, let’s chat about these new beauty products I love! So, if you have been following along for awhile, you know I quit coffee several years ago. Although I don’t drink coffee everyday, I do order it at restaurants if I am eating brunch, and when Starbucks comes out with new flavors I feel compelled to taste! haha Other than that, I don’t really drink coffee anymore. That being said, I still consume food and drinks which stain teeth. I drink tea a few times per week, and I enjoy tooth staining foods such as tomatoes and carrots. This means the expensive tooth whitening treatment my dentist gave me back in 2013 is no longer visible. My teeth are stained again!

I was thrilled when Billionaire Teeth Whitening contacted me a couple of months ago to test out their whitening pen. It’s an affordable way to whiten teeth at home. My dentist charged me north of $600, while this pen is nicely priced at under $50. I also happen to have a discount code to share with you! You can pick up your own pen online here, and use code BAF to save 10% of your treatment purchase. I hope you love your results as much as I do!

Be sure to use my link above to purchase the Billionaire Teeth Whitening Pen-you don’t want to purchase it elsewhere and end up with a counterfeit product!

Colleen Rothschild hand cream review

colleen rothschild hand cream review

Colleen Rothschild is a beauty brand I love and trust. So, when I needed to purchase some new hand cream, I decided to try hers out! I am so glad I did! I love this! The hand cream by Colleen Rothschild is non-greasy, and it adds just the right amount of moisture to help protect and repair dry hands. This is really good hand cream! I am hooked! As you can tell from this photo, I have already started to use my tube, and chances are, I will run out of it quickly. I am always washing my hands, cleaning my house, and in need of some hand cream. This is a workhorse, love it! You can snag your own online here.

EOS Lip Balm review all flavors

EOS lip balm beauty blogger review all flavorsEOS lip balm beauty blogger review

In addition to hand cream, I am always in need of lip balm. The climate here in the San Francisco Bay Area is quite drying, so beauty products which help combat the dry air are a must. This lip balm by EOS is easy to use. There are a few scents to choose from, and they smell really yummy! There isn’t any waxy taste, or chemical taste; they taste pretty natural. I am addicted to the pink one! I know I will plow through these quickly. I keep one in my purse, one in my beauty kit at home, and one in my gym bag. Can’t leave home without one nearby!

Garnier Micellar Eye Makeup Remover Pads review

garnier makeup remover pads review

Are you always running out of cotton squares? I change my nail color so often, I am always running out of my cotton squares! Thankfully, Garnier sent me these fabulous eye makeup remover pads which don’t require a cotton square. They are their own pad! I love an all-in-one product! These Garnier Micellar Eye Makeup remover pads are a game changer. They make makeup removal sooooo easy! Love! I will never go without a package of these, they are a must-have!

Thank you for coming here every week for my beauty reviews! I have been receiving a lot of products in the mail, but I don’t enjoy everything I receive. Starting this year, I decided that I would do a monthly round-up of new beauty products for you which I have tested out, and have fallen in love with. Hopefully this make it easy for you to find new beauty products to love! So, starting today, I will do a beauty must-have post with my favorite finds of the month, on the first of the month! I hope you enjoy!

In January, I tested out a ton of new beauty products. The ones I ended up falling in love with, are pictured above. There is a combination of hair care products, make-up, skin care products, and a relaxing candle; don’t we all need one?! Without further ado, here are my favorites of the month!

Elvive by L’Oreal Paris

As you know, I love to swim and get outside. The chlorine from swimming, and the sun, has wreaked havoc on my hair. So, I am always on the lookout for fabulous hair care products which solve my dry, damaged hair problem. This new hair care collection, Elvive by L’Oreal Paris, is the perfect solution. The leave-in conditioner is my favorite from the collection. It really helps revive my hair!

Elemis Biotec Skin Energizing Skincare System

This is a fabulous collection. I am in love with the Elemis Biotec Skin energizing Cleanser. It leaves my skin squeaky skin without stripping it of essential oils, or drying it out. This is my go-to cleanser. It is fabulous! The night cream and day cream are great too; plus they are travel size. Love that!

Colleen Rothschild Retinol Supreme eye Serum

This eye serum is a-ma-zing! It really reduces the lines around my eyes and keeps them looking refreshed. I love the fact that is it jam-packed with Retinal (vitamin A), Vitamin C, Saliporine 8, and Cityguard. These key ingredients provide antioxidant support, improve moisture and elasticity, contour, lift, and repair. Love that!

Givenchy Gloss Interdit Vinyl

This is the newest lip gloss product from Givenchy. Can I just say-LOVE! This is a fabulous lip gloss which offers bold colour and shine. The colour reacts to your pH balance and changes into a color which looks just right on your skin. Love it!!

Foreo Luna Play Sonic Face Cleanser

OK, cutest little face cleanser ever! I love this petite little cleanser which is great for packing in my purse or beach bag for cleansing on the go. It is also fabulous for travel. Love it!

Tan-Luxe self tanners

So the weather is warming up, and my skin is pasty white! Eeeek! Tan-Luxe makes the most fabulous self-tanner for both face and body. This is the only way to not look pasty while the temperatures reach the mid-70’s yet my skin has not seen sun in months. This is a self tanning must-have!

Colleen Rothschild Haight Ashbury candle

I love candles for relaxing, and while I wear a face mask. They are so relaxing. This candle by Colleen Rothschild offers the scent of the hippie lifestyle; which reminds me of when I lived two blocks from the Haight Ashbury in San Francisco-even thought I am not a hippie. It is a relaxing scent which is rich and spicy. Love it!

There you have it! My favorite beauty products from the past month. Have you tried any of them yet? What are your thoughts?

Winter beauty must-haves for skin and hair

winter beauty skin care hair must haves

Winter beauty must-have’s from top left: Aveda hand cream / Revive eye cream / Elemis face cream / Colleen Rothschild retinol supreme / Revive neck cream / LaVanila body butter / Tan-Luxe body drops / Tan-Luxe face drops / Chanel fall nail polish / Bobbi Brown crushed lip color / Aveda scalp cleanser / Aveda shampoo / Aveda conditioner

Despite the fact that is technically still fall, I have already started my winter beauty routine. The fall season here in the San Francisco Bay Area is half summer, and half winter. We don’t really have an in-between. This means my summer beauty routine continues until the cold front hits in November; and we are here!

My skin takes a beating during the winter season, not from sun exposure, but from the dry, indoor climate. The furnace in my house, combined with heaters everywhere I go, are really good at drying out the air. This leaves the skin on my face and body desperately thirsty. In order to ensure I don’t become a prune during the winter season, I need to make sure I am using the right skin care products.

For my face, I have been using Revive’s neck cream since I was twenty-eight years old. You read that right! It has kept my neck in a perfect state; and I won’t use anything else on it! I have fallen in love Elemis’s face cream. It gives my face the perfect amount of moisture and balance. For my eyes, Revive has a fabulous eye cream which does wonders for reducing fine lines, and adding just the perfect amount of moisture. Colleen Rothchild’s retinal serum is perfect for keeping my skin balanced and youthful.

When it comes to my body, my skin is ghostly white and dries out easily. Thank goodness for Aveda hand cream and LaVanila body butter! They keep my body from drying and flaking off like snow! As for the white part, have you tried new Tan-Luxe? O-M-G! It is a gift from God! These fabulous drops add just the right amount of tan to my legs. They also have a version for the face which is perfect for adding some sun-kissed color back to my cheeks. Love it and can’t live without it!

Hair also takes a beating during the cold winter months. The heater dries out my hair like crazy! In addition to my hair, it dries out my scalp; which is super annoying! To combat dry scalp, I use Aveda Pramasana scalp cleanser which gets all that extra yuck off my scalp, leaving it squeaky clean; and not dry! Shampure shampoo and conditioner by Aveda are great for keeping my hair clean during the winter months. It keeps my hair from getting greasy without drying my scalp or ends. Love it!

Now you might be wondering why I included Chanel’s fall nail polish and Bobbi Brown’s lipstick in a skin care slash hair post. Well, I can’t leave home without wearing these two beauty products, so I just thought I would throw them into my seasonal skin care post. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂 This lipstick is great since it holds color well throughout the day without drying out the lips. I’m addicted to it! And. . .well. . .Chanel needs no explanation 😉

Which products are you using to combat winter dry skin and hair?

Thanks for stopping by!
