It seems that with summer coming up, your life will be busier than normal with running errands, attending baseball games, as well as dance lessons, or any other scheduled activity that you have planned for your children to keep them safe and happy this summer holiday. Because of all the events to which you have committed yourself, you don’t always have the time to wash and dry your hair as often as you normally would. I recently reviewed a product, Batiste Dry Shampoo, which works wonders for those days when your time is limited, yet you still want to look your best, especially when you are out in public.
Batiste Dry Shampoo
Step 1 – Spray.
Step 2 – Massage.
Step 3 – Brush and style as usual.
Batiste is ideal for creating body you crave, while ditching the dirt, oil and grease as it freshens hair in minutes and brings life back to dull, lifeless hair! Simply spray lightly and evenly, massage through with your fingertips, brush out, and voila, strikingly revitalized hair! It’s great to use for busy moms who are always on the go too! Batiste has a lot of exciting scents including Original, Blush, Tropical, Fresh, Cherry, Wild, Lace along with their Hint of Color range. If you are a redhead, Batiste has just launched the new Vibrant & Red¸ especially for you. These award winning products have been featured in magazines such as Martha Stewart Living and Fashion Affair.
The Batiste Dry Shampoo can be purchased at various retail stores across the country, including Bed, Bath & Beyond; Shop Rite; H E B; Food Lion; and Kroger, among others. You can also purchase this product online through companies such as Walgreens; Neoteric Cosmetics, Inc.; folica; or Urban Outfitters. See the Batiste Dry Shampoo website for a complete listing of locations.
I also had an opportunity to review two Eylure products: the Naturalites and Katy Perry Oh, Honey! style lashes.
Eylure is a fabulous false lash brand, Eylure, which also carries a line of Katy Perry lashes. Eylure has a variety of lashes for daily wear or evening wear. Katy Perry also recently launched her Color Pop line which adds a flash of striking, yet subtle, color to make your eyes pop! Eylure.
Eylure remains one of the only brands to genuinely innovate in the false lash category across the globe. This drive to create and improve is perfectly showcased by their creation of the Naturalites Double Lashes. Additionally, Eylure ensures the best possible customer experience with the inclusion of glue with each lash package.
As a rookie regarding the application and wearing of false eye lashes, I needed to research which product would be the most becoming to my eye shape. I discovered on the Eylure.com website that I have what is called “hooded eyes”. This eye shape has a larger area between the brow bone and the crease of the eye, than between the lash line and crease. The website suggested lashes that are even and not too long for my eye type, such as the Naturalites style.
Following the easy application video on the website, I applied the Naturalites style lashes. The first couple of tries; however, left an end result of something to be desired. But, after a couple attempts, I was finally successful. There are also instructions on the package itself regarding the application of these lashes. These particular false eye lashes are great for regular wear or for a special occasion, and come with the adhesive for application. While the adhesive is white initially, when it dries, it turns a clear coloring and easily hidden from view with a bit of eye liner.
The Eylure false lashes definitely make my eyes more becoming.
The second set of lashes that I tried were the Katy Perry lashes, Oh, Honey! style. These lashes are a bit fuller than the Naturalites, just as easy to apply and looked just as great. Adhesive is also included with these lashes, as well as step-by-step directions on how best to apply. The Katy Perry lashes, like the Naturalites, are handmade, 100% natural and are reusable. However, if you desire to reuse the lashes, the company does not recommend that you apply any mascara to the false eye lashes. Additionally, the company suggests that you apply your false eye lashes as a last step in your make up routine.
Of particular note is the fact when applying these lashes, either the Naturalites, or the Katy Perry style, both recommend that after you apply the adhesive to the lash that you wait from 20-30 seconds in order for the adhesive to become tacky. This helps the lashes adhere to your lash line. All Eylure strip lashes are suitable for contact lens wearers.
Similar to the Batiste Hair.com website, the Eylure website has a multitude of products from which to choose for your beauty needs. And like Batiste Dry Shampoo, the Eylure products can be purchased through various retail stores such as CVS Drugs, Bartell Drugs, K Mart, or online through Amazon.com, or Walgreens.com. See the Eylure website for a complete listing of locations.
Stop by the Eylure Facebook page, as well as their Pinterest and Twitter pages to say hello.
I highly recommend the Batiste Dry Shampoo. You will definitely want to keep a can of this product on hand in the case of an emergency, or simply when you are on the go. It is especially nice when an individual is a patient in a hospital and cannot wash their hair. I can also recommend the Eylure false eye lashes, as I believe that I have made an improvement in my appearance when wearing them, as my eyes seem more flattering to my face.
