Spongeables Pedi Scrub Foot Buffer Review

<img src=”” />

Spongeables® Pedi-Scrub is a foot buffer and soap in one. On one side is soft and gentle, infused with soap and aromatic botanicals to leave feet clean, fresh and sweet smelling. But the other side is where the action is. Spongeables are made to buff away dry, rough skin on heels and soles, shine up the toenails, and exfoliate dry skin. Pedi-Scrub’s scrubby-texture provides a stimulating massage that revives tired feet and leaves them tingling.

I tried the Lavender and Tea Tress oil and it smelt amazing. Being on my feet all day, it is a nice treat to come home and use Spongeables Pedi Scrub on my sore, tired feet.

Spongeables Pedi Scrub Foot Buffer is available intwo appealing fragrance choices, aromatic Lavender & Tea Tree Oil  or revitalizing Citron-Eucalyptus. Both provide a touch of aromatherapy rejuvenation, leaving a hint of clean, herbal freshness on the skin. Pedi-Scrubs are available at drug, discount and chain stores around the world (MSR $6.99) or visit their website.

So it is Spring and Summertime again and that means time for skirts, shorts and skorts. It also means time to make sure that our legs are silky smooth. Shaving can be one of those “hassles” when you are running late. Well our friends at Gillette has made it a little easier and faster! They have taken their Venus razor that I already love and have added Olay Moisture Bars! There is no more need for a separate shaving cream. You just wet the razor and it releases a light lather. The only way they could make it easier is by shaving our legs for us.

The Venus & Olay razor has 5 blades. This is so that you can get that close, comfortable shave. Plus the head adjusts to our curves so it easy to get that close silky shave even over the tricky shaving areas such as our knees and ankles. The Venus & Olay also has a soft grip handle, it keeps you in control even in the shower! The Olay Moisture Bars smell amazing! They contain skin-enhancing elements that are great for your skin.  Petrolatum helps lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness and Glycerin helps offer that goddess glow!

Venus & Olay razors come with one refillable cartridge and shower hook. It  sells for approximately $8.99-$10.99. You can buy replacement packages of three replacement cartridges for about $14.99 – $19.49. Venus & Olay razors are available for you to purchase at your local  food, drug, convenience and mass merchandise stores throughout the United States.

imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails Review

As many of you know I have recently gotten my first Influenster Box. One of the items that I got to try was imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails. These nails are great!! I love how they come in a cool “nail polish” bottle tray. I received the “Working Girl” pattern. These nails are silver with black crackle. I rarely have time to go to the salon and get a manicure or the money for that fact.  Broadway Nails’ imPRESS Press-on Manicure makes it easy to get a manicure and super affordable to change when ever I want. My imPRESS Press-on Manicure was so fast and easy to apply. I picked out the Press on nails that fit my real nails.  I then simply trimmed my nails and cleaned them with a quick wipe with the included prep pad.You get 24 nails in 12 sizes so its easy to find the perfect fit for your nails. Next I laid out the 10 nails in the order that I would be applying them. (I started with my pinkies and worked towards my thumbs.) Then you just peel and stick and you have a professional looking manicure in just minutes! 

imPress Manicures retail for $5.99 and $7.99 depending if you want a solid color or if you would like a pattern. imPress Manicures are available in 36 colors and patterns, including trendy brights, classic darks and animal prints They are available for purchase at CVS, Rite Aid, Kmart, Walgreens and Walmart just to name a few.

Umberto Beverly Hills Review

Umberto Savone, creator of the line, is a California-based celebrity hairstylist. The Umberto Beverly Hills is a full line of hair care products including shampoo, conditioner, styling products and tools. Umberto Savone is known for the personal attention he gives his clients and he made sure to include the same attention into his salon-quality hair care collection.

Umberto  Banana Brush 201

This is the best brush I have ever used! It has so many great features that you can’t go wrong. The unique curve of the brush makes it easy and comfortable to hold. The bristles are soft and gentle on your scalp. It is perfect for all hair types. Both my daughters have claimed the brush to be theirs. They are 2 and 5 and used to hate getting their hair brush. When we first started using the Umberto Banana Brush we immediately noticed a difference from other brushes. The bristles gently detangles their hair without hurting their scalp. The first time I brushed my two year old’s hair she said, “Mommy, It doesn’t hurt me.”  She now loves getting her hair brushed as long as its with her “special banana brush”. I have very long hair and love using my brush when I blow dry my hair. It gives my hair lift and volume with half the effort.

Shimmer Shine Spray

I love the Shimmer Shine Spray the most! I straighten and blow dry my hair rather often and I notice that my hair loses the softness and shine that I would like. I have tried quite a few different products to get the shine back but only found that my hair feels heavy and greasy. However that is not the issue when I use Shimmer Shine Spray. Shimmer Shine Spray instantly adds shine and silkiness that my hair lost. It is not greasy and extremely easy to use. I start my  blow drying or straitening my hair however I want. Then holding Shimmer Shine Spray about 10 – 12″ away from my hair I start spraying onto my hair. I start with a little until I get the desired effect. Run my fingers through and I am good to go! Plus I don’t have to worry about using additional product for flyaways because Shimmer Shine Spray does it all.

Texturizer Styling Cream

Umberto Beverly Hills Texturizer Styling Cream helps shape, seperate and adds texture without weighing down your hair. I hate when you can tell when I have used hair products, usually because it has left my hair “heavy” or looking greasy. Texturizer Styling Cream can be used applied to towel dried hair for control and shine while blow drying or applied to dry hair to create shape and texture. I personally like to use the Texturizer Styling Cream after I towel dry my hair.

Umberto Beverly Hills products are available exclusively at Target store and his West Coast salons. Umberto Beverly Hills products are reasonably price so you can get salon quality product and won’t make you go broke!

Clever Girl Innovations

Clever Girl Innovations GlamMat Review

With all of the curling irons and hair straighteners I have used, I am always worried that they will burn the counter or fall and burn the floor. Recently Clever Girl Innovations allowed me to review one of their famous GlamMats. Let me tell you these generously sized mats aren’t just useful for styling tools. The raised very decorative pattern grips everything from styling tools to shears and other beauty items. GlamMats are made of safe nontoxic silicone which helps prevent damage from burns, drops and spills. Each GlamMat is heat resistant to 450 degrees and are specially designed to disperse heat away from any surface it is placed on. GlamMats aren’t just perfect for styling tools but instead have an endless amount of uses. GlamMats are available in four different colors. Black, Clear, Pink and Purple.  Each Glammats measure 5.4″ x 9″ to hold more than one styling tool and give you a generous amount of space no matter what you use your GlamMat for.

Anyone who loves crafts will love its superior gripping ability and unique raised design when working with beads, clasps, and other small items which tend to want to roll away! GlamMat is sure to keep all of your craft supplies in one place and ready when you need them. Secure your glasses, cell phones and remote controls by placing them on one handy surface. No more sliding off the table with GlamMat! You can even use it under your favorite casserole dish to protect your table and counter top. Buy one for the man in your life so those little nuts, bolts and screws don’t roll away when he is assembling a project around the house.  Use it in the car to keep your cell phone, sunglasses and other items secure. Even my husband used mine this weekend. He was working on his R/C cars and used my GlamMat to keep all the little screws and bolts from getting lost. Plus, he loved how the bright color of the mat made it easy to locate the parts.

Another Clever Girl Innovations product is GlamEars. GlamEars help protect your ears from severe burns when using hot styling tools, such as curling irons, hair straighteners, hot rollers and blow dryers. Did you know that these tools heat to an excess of 400 degrees? This can cause serious burns to delicate ear tissue. How many times have you dyed your hair at home and ended up staining your ears the color of the dye? GlamEars are perfect for when you are dying your hair and can protect your ears from those annoying stains that you never know how long they will last. (Yes, I am guilty of this.) GlamEars are reusable and easy to put on and east to remove. GlamEars are one size fits most and are available in two colors, Clever Girl Pink and Violet Blush.

Clever Girl Innovations take pride that GlamEars and GlamMat are made in the USA. GlamEars and GlamMat are both created with the glam girl in mind – durable, decorative and designer inspired! Even though hair dye may stain your GlamEars or GlamMat, it will never affect the integrity of your product. GlamMats and GlamEars are easy to wash with soap and water and air dry fast. GlamMats and GlamEars are both heat resistant up to 450 degrees.

Stilazzi Make Up Brush Review

I have a rather large bag of make up flubs! What is a Flub? You know those products that had all the hype and you just had to get them. Then you got home tried them and they just didn’t meet your expectations. Then I have what I call my can’t live without bag! It is filled with all of my favorite products that I have discovered. Recently I discovered Stilazzi and I have to say that they are one of my favorite cosmetic tools! They have everything from brushes to applicators and bags! They are a dream for anyone who loves the latest and highest quality products. They provide hairstylist, make-up artists, nail technician with professional tools they need on a daily basis!

I am a huge fan of Stilazzi’s Small Shadow Brush. It is made of Stable hair and is super soft. It is a soft but firm small rounded paddle brush. It is easy to hold which makes it perfect to apply my powder eyeshadows. It easily gets the creases and helps me achieve the professional look I desire.


Stilazzi’s Blender Brush is another one of my favorite brushes. The bristles are made of a blend of  blue squirrel and goat hair. I use it to apply and blend my blush. It is great for that finished look!


Stilazzi’s Large Powder Brush is great for applying powder make-up especially powder foundations. The bristles are a blend of goat and squirrel hair.

Sparkly Soul Headband Review

I am a girl so it’s pretty obvious that I love things that sparkle! I have fairly long hair and as a mom I am constantly brushing it out of my face. I have tried many so-called non-slip headbands and well they didn’t work and they are now sitting in the hair box of products that don’t work and I have no use for. Don’t forget about the headbands that are so tight that you get a massive headache from wearing them. Sparkly Souls have come up with NON-SLIP headbands that actually WORK! These very sparkly bands have Glitter going all the way around, not just the front or one section but 360* of total sparkly glitter. The entire band is made of elastic. Sparkly Soul headbands are available in 10 colors, Black, Blue, Gold, Green, Orange, Pink, Dark Purple, Light Purple, Red and Silver. Sparkly Thin Headbands are 3/8 of an inch in width and Sparkly wide headbands are 5/8 of an inch in width. Sparkly Soul Headbands are one size fits all adults. Sparkly Soul Headbands are perfect to wear for any occasion and are the perfect addition to any hair accessories. What is great is that Sparkly Soul Inc was created by  a marathoner and triathlete for all the women who find their strength and soul while pushing themselves to their athletic limits. They made sure that Sparkly Soul headbands stay in place and  hair out of our face no matter how active we are. They are perfect for athletes no matter if you are a  runner, walker, dancer, triathlete, yogi, pilates buff, cyclist, cheerleader, or ballplayer.

Roots Only Review

<a style="display: none;" href=""><span></span></a>

Roots Only Review

I dye my hair regularly which is not the healthiest thing I can do for my hair but trying to touch up my roots usually took just as long. I was lucky enough to be asked to try a new product that would make touching up my roots easier. I of course was skeptical because does anything really make my life easier…Roots only is really as easy as 1, 2 ,and 3. I started by mixing my color and putting it into my roots only bottle. With the wide tooth comb it was easy and fast for me to apply my color, let it process and then rinsed my hair as I normally would. It took half the time that it usually takes me to touch up my roots. Even cleaning my reusable Roots only bottle was super easy. I just filled it with warm water put the top back on and let it sit for a few seconds. I then shook the bottle and squeezed the bottle until all the traces of dye were gone.

Roots Only works on long, medium and short hair. Using Roots Only helps you get salon professional results at home. The comb applicator works with all liquid and creme brands of hair dye. Roots Only allows you to apply color in 5 minutes or less and without the mess. Comb and squeeze to apply the color. There is no need for parting or sectioning of your hair which helps save time.  All Roots Only products are reusable and made in the USA.
