Beauty Horoscope: Aries 2017

 

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Alright, Aries. It's time to add fuel to the element that burns in your soul. Fire fills you with energy. So should your beauty rituals. Reds will emblazon your competitive nature. While most will find red to be an intimidating color to work with, you can draw inspiration from it. The warmth of reds connects you to Mars, your ruling planet. Often you rely on makeup techniques that are comfortable to you. But in the season of Aries, you must be bold. This Spring and Summer, draping blush will be everywhere. It is a throwback to the 80s. With a light fluffy brush, apply your blush high on your cheekbone. Sweep the color into your crease, temple, or brow bone. Here are some product recommendations and beauty inspo for every Aries.

GlamGlow Duo Cleanser & Mask Product Review

Written by Deanna .P 

s1616788-main-Lhero.jpg

 

I wrote about a GlamGlow product that I really liked a few months ago so I was excited to receive a couple more products to review from the brand. In case you did not read my previous review here is a refresher on the origins of the brand.  The GlamGlow line was originally created by a couple in California in 2011to be used exclusively for backstage & professional useby Hollywood movie stars.

Glenn & Shannon Dellimore formulated it in their home & gave it out to some of their actor friends to try.  The products worked so well that they received a call from a top luxury brand that wanted to retail the products.  And the rest is, as they say, history!    They now have a full line of products that are sold for all of us to buy.  

 

GlamGlow Powermud Dualcleanse treatment

1/7 oz / 50gMSRP: $69.00

 

This treatment is a mud to oil treatment.   It goes on as a mud & when you cleanse it off with water it turns to oil.  This results in soft velvety skin. The directions to use are as follows.  Apply a thin even layer to skin & leave on for5 to 10 minutes allowing it to dry.  To remove, apply water & move your hands in circular motion so the mud turns to a cleansing oil.  Use one or two times per week.  The Powermud is a good product & made my skin feel smooth &  soft after treatment, but it took the full 10 minutes to dry.  I did like the fact that it turned to oil as most mud masks are so hard to get off & they feel abrasive on your skin.  This turned to oil & really worked on making my dry skin look better.

 

GlamGlow PowerCleanse Daily Dual Cleanser

 5oz/ 150g MSRP $39.00

 

This is a face cleanser with two separate pumps.  One for mud & one for oil & when combined together they form a dual cleansing foam that gets rid of makeup & dirt build up on your skin making the skin feel fresh clean & purified.  To use pump 3 to 4 pumps of each mud & oil on to hands, add water & vigorously rub together to make a foam.  Massage onto face & then rinse. The more water you add, the foamier it will become.  Make sure to avoid eye area.

 

The Dual Cleanser was great to use in the shower & is now my daily cleanser.   A couple of quick pumps & I have a facial cleanser that made my skin feel clean & terrific.  This will definitely become part of my beauty routine. Both of these products are without parabens, sulfates, & Phthalates.  Also, they can be used by both men & women.I liked both of these products, but I definitely liked the Dual Cleanser better.  I think the pricing is rather high for these products, but the product line was made for Hollywood stars so the price point makes sense.  I definitely believe these products & this line are worth trying if you have not.

Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment Review

Written by Ada. H 

glamglow clearing treatment review.jpg

The smaller letters underneath the product name state, "Supermud Clearing Treatment". They really weren't kidding. Super poreless skin. I love everything about it.  It comes out a dark gray cream and when you rub it onto your face you're taken aback like wtf? Because in this mask is a little ingredient that looks like black flakes of I don't know what! It's awesome!  Is this what supermud looks like? I googled some of the ingredients. It could be teaoxi, volcanic pumice rock sediments, or french sea clay particles. I don't know, but these all sound like good things to me.  This mask was once available only to the Hollywood stars, but as all good things you can't keep it from the masses! We shall get our grimy hands on this and be poreless! Yeah! 

 

It smooths on your face like a creamy dream and starts to dry almost instantly! The clay mask will turn a true dark gray color once dried, but you'll be able to see darker black spots popping up all over the mask as it dries. What are those? That's the mask seeping into your pore holes to pull the crap out of your face! It's marvelous darling, oh so marvelous!  I've tried a bunch of face masks before and this is my favorite! This beats Origins' Charcoal Mask right out of the water!

Gimme gimme gimme. This comes with a hefty price tag though at $69 a pop. 

But that's the cost of cleaning out your pores, you dirty girl. Well paid and well played, Hollywood. That's the price of looking like a star, and a star you shall look.

Glam Glow Lip POUTMUD review

Written by Deanna .P

When I first received GlamGlow POUTMUD™ Fizzy Lip Exfoliating & Wet Lip Balm Treatment Duo, I was super impressed with the bright pink & silver lettered fancy packaging.    I had never seen a lip product packaged so nice.  I even liked the fact that it was two lip treatments in one.  

 

The set contains: 

  • 0.88 oz Fizzy Lip Exfoliating Treatment 
  • 0.88 oz Wet Lip Balm Treatment 

 To use, you start with the exfoliating tub.  Massage a generous amount on lips for 5-10 seconds.  Gently massage with water & this will activate the fizzy renewing action.  Rinse with warm water.  Recommend use is 2-3 times a week.  

The treatment is said to renew, energize & smooth lips.  The exfoliation complex consists of caribbean cane sugar, Hawaiian sea salt, and hibiscus flower powder, and is further boosted with an antioxidant-rich tropical fruit blend of sweet almond oil, guava, cherimoya, star fruit, lychee, and mangosteen. The wet lip balm tub is to be applied evenly next.  This can be used anytime.  The Wet Lip Balm Treatment is supposed to instantly make lips feel softer, hydrated, and look restored.   It’s formulated with a super hydration infusion of sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, murumuru butter, shea butter, tamanu oil, and babassu oil, and enhanced with kombucha extract Both lip essentials contain teaoxi® Moroccan mint leaf for sweet, minty, kissable lips. There is no Parabens, Sulfates, or Phthalatesin the product. The GlamGlow line was originally created by a couple in California in 2011to be used exclusively for backstage & professional useby Hollywood movie stars.

Glenn & Shannon Dellimore formulated it in their home & gave it out to some of their actor friends to try.  The products worked so well that they received a call from a top luxury brand that wanted to retail the products.  And the rest is as they say, history!  

I tried the treatment & I was definitely impressed.   I had tried many lip balms, chapsticks, etc, but they never made my lips feel so good.  This 2 part system really worked to soften, restore & invigorate my lips.  The ingredients all felt natural smelled delectable, & the end result was a perfect pout.  My lips felt & looked so good, I was tempted to go sans lipstick  for the first time in many years.

I thought the price at $39.00 was a little high, but was worth it for this lip treatment.   I would definitely recommend this & would also try other products. 

Here’s more information on them & where to buy:
