REVIEW OF KLIX MAKE UP BRUSHES

PRODUCT: Klix Make Up Brushes

We’ve all heard the dangers of using dirty makeup brushes - from eye infections to spreading acne – but how many of us actually wash our brushes regularly? I certainly am guilty of using a brush that has just a little bit too much grit, a little bit too much color. Well here’s a  product review perfect for the lazy beauty girls in all of us – Klix Make Up Brushes with replaceable brush heads. The brushes are sold in a set of three, priced at $59.95, which includes a Foundation/Concealer Brush, a Blush Brush and a Powder Brush. Replacement brush heads for each of the above are sold separately in sets of two – two Foundation/Concealer Brush heads sell for $9.95, two Blush Brush heads sell for $10.95 and two Powder Brush heads retail for $11.95. The collection also features two Kabuki Brushes for $19.95.

Believe or not, a recent survey found that 45% of the women polled never clean their makeup brushes because it is too time consuming or they simply don’t think about it. In fact, Linda Shrier, the creative force behind the Klix collection, developed the line because her own daughter experienced skin problems due to dirty makeup brushes.

Makeup brushes can harbor bacteria, oils and makeup residue that can wreak havoc on your skin – a situation Klix wants to remedy. “This idea is brilliant,” stated Joel Schlessinger, M.D. “If all my patients were to use recyclable makeup brushes, skin infections would be significantly reduced.”

So, if you are like me and always feel guilty about using a brush that isn’t the cleanest, consider the Klix solution. All brushes and replacement heads can be purchased online at www.KlixBrushes.com.

BEAUTY REVIEW – PHILOSOPHY’S VANILLA BIRTHDAY CAKE GIFT SET FOR THE BEAUTY BIRTHDAY GIRL!

Posted by 06.22.11



PRODUCT: Philosophy 'Vanilla Birthday Cake' set

Philosophy is well known for its body products ranging from creams, shower gels, lip glosses and more; it has fabulously packaged two of its wonderful items into a birthday gift set perfect for a friend, coworker or family member.  The $18 Philosophy Birthday Girl gift set includes an 8 oz 3-in-1 shower gel, bubble bath and shampoo and a .5 oz  flavored high sheen lip gloss, both scented with the brand's Vanilla Birthday Cake scent.

This set comes in cute "girly" packaging that takes you back to happy childhood birthday memories, and the vanilla cake smell makes you even happier.  Not everyone has an affinity for the vanilla smell aside from when it's in food,  but Philosophy has managed to turn this into a light, just perfectly sweet aroma.  The shower gel scent isn't overpowering, and I enjoyed its aromatherapeutic touch to help me wake up in the morning or wind down at night; and I didn't smell like vanilla extract for hours to come.  I pefer to use the gel as a body wash or bubble bath - my hair is rather dry and for me it wasn't moisturizing enough to use as a shampoo.

The lip gloss has a nice thick consistency, so you can use is sparingly (which saves more of it!), plus it has a great vanilla taste.  Using this lip gloss might even make you want to go out and have a real vanilla flavored dessert.  The lip gloss shows up clear, but  micro glitter bits add sparkly sheen. At $18 this makes for a great birthday even for a young teenager.
