Total Beauty Product Review

L'Oreal Paris Body Expertise: Sublime Bronze Luminous Bronzer Self Tanning Lotion

I tested the product where I could. It seemed to work well, but I am not in need of a tan. My body is bronzed naturally. :-) I loved the fresh scent of the bronzer. I did notice that it contains an Alpha Hydroxy Acid, so if wearing, be sure to wear a sunscreen to prevent sunburn. A bronzer is not something that I will continue to use on myself, but I will definitely use it on my clients when the opportunity presents itself. Read more...

L'Oreal EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System: UV Protect Spray

Anything from the L'Oreal EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care system is going to be a winner for me. The UV protect spray has a wonderful fragrance...Rosemary Mint. Its lightweight and refreshing. I love it because it gives my hair added protection and the moisture that it needs to prevent breakage. Two thumbs up!!!

Beauty Tip Of The Week

When brow hairs are sparse, brush them in an upward direction with a brow brush. Look to see where they need to be filled in. You can use a brow powder, pencil, or wax.

Never use BLACK powder or pencil to fill in your brows. Black is too harsh of a color. If you dont believe this, test it out. Use a black product one day and then try a dark brown the next day.
Hopefully this tip helped someone. For more tips, follow us on Twitter.

Beauty Tip of The Week

Clean Out Your Makeup Bags, Drawers, Pouches, etc.

Its time to clean out your makeup bags. If you have products that are more than a year old, its time to make some changes. Get rid of any mascaras that are older than a month. If you have it longer than a month and it's sitting in your bag or drawer, then you are not using it. If you are not using it, then it's definitely not good. Take inventory and start cleaning house!!!

Total Beauty Review - Herbal Essences Toussle Me Softly

Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly

I wasn't exactly excited when I received these products in the mail. They are nothing like the products that I use on my hair (so I thought). The products promised to 'achieve the tousled look from wet to set'. After using them, I can't say that I was impressed. My hair didn't feel as soft and manageable as it normally does. To be very honest, these products are just not for my hair type. To get a better idea of what The Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly products can do, check out,

Total Beauty Review - Caress Exfoliating Body Wash & Beauty Bar

Caress Evenly Gorgeous Exfoliating Body Wash & Beauty Bar

I love this body wash and beauty bar. They make my skin feel really soft and smooth. I love the gentle feel of the exfoliating beads. They both have the fragrance of brown sugar and karite butter which moisturizes the skin. The product is called 'Evenly Gorgeous, but I didn't see any difference in my skin tone. It sure felt good though. For more reviews, log on to

Total Beauty Review - Q-Tips Vanity Packs

Q-Tips Review

Qtips Vanity Packs

I was shocked when I received 4 pretty boxs of Qtips cotton swabs in the mail. I thought, "They are cotton swabs, What do I do with these'? The new cotton swabs have more cotton on them. If you are one of those women who are on a budget and don't want to spend alot of money on makeup brushes, these are for you. They hold alot of product very well and are perfect for cleaning up messes around the eyes and lips. Try them out, I recommend them. For more reviews on Qtips cotton swabs and other products,
