The Acne Antidote

As a young teenager, I had really oily skin and terrible acne. I washed my face every morning and every night with everything from acne bar soaps to Noxzema but nothing worked. I asked my friends for advice, I read article after article, I steamed my face over a hot pan of boiling water in an attempt to keep my pores clean, I tried facial mask, special kits that promised to keep a human spotless, flawless and ageless.………………………you name it, I tried it, all of it and it was simply a huge waste of money!

Touch Up, Cover Up, Conceal

Gray away

Gray Away Root Concealer is my new best friend! This stuff is truly fabulous! I have very little gray hair but after using the So Gorgeous Volume Renewing Dry Hair Shampoo for a couple of days, I use the Gray Away Root Concealer to cover up any changes in my hair color and to add a little shine. It’s also great for blending and touch-ups between salon appointments. This stuff is amazing!!

I was actually surprised at how well this root concealer worked and it took very little to give me the results I was looking for.

 

My natural hair color is a dark brown but I consistently add high lights and low lights and the Gray Away Root Concealer in the color light brown blends everything together perfectly and gives an added touch of shine on the days I need it.

 

I love the fact that it doesn’t take much to get the results that I want and it doesn’t feel sticky or stiff, make my scalp itch, come off on my hands or get on my clothes. I also love that it doesn’t come off on furniture or sheets and it washes out easily.

 

It’s super easy to use and has advantages that totally make it worth the $9.99 it cost. I don’t use this root concealer everyday but close to it and this little can gives a whole lot of application making it last a good while. You can also  order it online HERE as some of the colors are only available on line.

 

Another plus is that the nozzle is small, enabling you to spray it just where you want it so it applies quick and easy and covers beautifully.

 

If you are looking for a root touch up, give Gray Away a try, this product definitely fits a busy lifestyle.

 

Tips:

– Hold the container about a foot away from hair section when spraying.

– A little goes a long way, you really don’t need much.

– It works best if you layer it, moving can back and forth as you spray.

Soaking Up a Sunless Tan

205

If you love a nice looking tan but want to protect your skin from the dangers of the sun, a self tanning lotion is one of the best, least expensive options. Up until last year, I’d never used a self tanning lotion. Being very fair-skinned, I was fearful of looking like an oompa loompa straight out of Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory. Geesh…….how scary……no thanks!

Dry Hair Shampoo at its Best

Washing, blowing drying, straightening or curling my hair every day is a chore just like it is for every girl. It takes up way too much time and does significant damage in the process but it is a much needed evil in maintaining ourselves and our want to look like we’ve just walked out of a salon.
