Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit Review

Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit retails for $29.95 on Amazon Prime. Their brush replacement set retails for $14.97 on Amazon Prime.  Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit comes with the body and face brushes that take four AA batteries. You also receive a small facial brush attachment, a body brush attachment, facial sponge, and the pumice stone attachment. The also include their facial scrub. 

Now, I wasn’t expecting it to compete to the Clarisonic. The Clarisonic is like a thoroughbred and the Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit is like a mule.

I have used it multiple times now. To be completely honest, it has done nothing for my skin. I struggle with flaky, dry skin in the winter, and I was hoping that this would be a more gentle solution for my dry skin. However, my skin was still left flaky and gross. I actually get more results with konjac sponge. The one good thing about this brush is that it’s so gentle that it doesn’t give any negative results to my severely sensitive skin.

Now, if you are using this brush for a simple clean will work wonderfully. However, if you are looking to give your skin a deep clean this isn’t going to do the job. It definitely won’t give you great exfoliation.

Overall, I found the Lilian Fache Spa-X Advanced Waterproof Facial and Body Cleansing Kit great for a simple, clean on your face. I, seriously, don’t think it will give you as great as a result as the Clarisonic or Foreo Luna. However, that is a huge price difference between them. If you are wondering if I would repurchase it, absolutely not. For me, the results it gives is not worth the money at all.

JAS Naturals Beauty Blender

 

20160307_131205JAS Naturals Beauty Blender retails for $10.95 on Amazon Prime. You get one that is the shape of the BeautyBlender that everyone raves about. (Including myself.) You also receive another one that is an hourglass shape. The blenders are latex-free, odor-free, non-allergenic, and eco-friendly. You can use this sponge wet or dry. They say dry gives you more coverage. I normally use it dry just to fix makeup mistakes.

Does it compare to BeautyBlender? Oh, fuck no. Nowhere close! When you get the JAS Naturals Sponge wet, it takes so much work to get the excess water out. Whilst the BeautyBlender is beyond easy to get the excess water out. On cleaning, BeautyBlender wins again! It cleans a million times easier than the JAS Naturals Beauty Blender. I found that it was nearly impossible for me to get all the foundation and other products I used with the JAS Naturals Sponge out. On blending, the BeautyBlender wins again! The BeautyBlender leaves my skin looking smooth and flawless, whilst the JAS Naturals Beauty Blender made my dry patches even more prominent. There is only one thing that I enjoyed more on the JAS Naturals Beauty Sponge than the BeautyBlender. That is how big the sponge is! It takes like half the time to apply foundation to my face with it!

If you are looking for a good dupe, the best I have tried and heard of is the Real Techniques Sponge. It’s the most amazing dupe that I have ever tried! Actually, it’s the only other sponge that I love! It’s not the perfect dupe for the BeautyBlender, but it’s closest you are going to get!

Overall, I, personally, I wouldn’t spend full price on it. I would rather purchase the Real Techniques Sponge if I was looking for a more financially friendly sponge. There is only one thing that I could say that’s positive about this sponge. Therefore, I can clearly not recommend this sponge. However, it is perfect for my toddler. Hopefully, she won’t destroy my BeautyBlenders now!

Dog Shedding Tool Sets by Pet Magasin Review

Oh, last summer. The year that my toddler ran off with our grooming brushes outside, and my husband managed to run them over with the mower. Goodbye, all you brushes. Except the furminator. After being sick of using one of my hair brushes to brush our dogs, I decided we must buy new brushes. Especially with two beautiful borzoi. One of my sweet girls loves to lay in the twigs and leaves. Her hair has to be brushed out daily or it becomes a big, hot, matted mess. (I honestly never let her get matted. Her hair is just amazingly soft and tangles easily.) The other is still a puppy, therefore, her hair is only long on her back legs and tail. Obviously, grooming her is beyond easy and fast.

The Dog Shedding Tool Set by Magasin comes with three tools in a sturdy material bag. The bag is grey with their logo. You receive a dematting rake, dog hair brush, and undercoat rake. All these only retail for $9.97 on Amazon Prime, which is a hell of a deal! The quality of each of them is so amazing and superior to the ones that you get at your local store, unless it’s a specialty pet store. Each brush has an amazing non-slip grip surface that makes it comfortable to hold. The double sided dog brush works wonderfully. Well, on one side, it is amazing! The other sides with the black bristles really does shit for my dogs’ coats. I am also sure the dematting brush would work great. However, my dog only had a couple of small tangles, and it clearly does not work for those small tangles. Lastly, the undercoat rake works wonderful. It removed a fair amount of hair. However, it is nothing like the furminator, if that’s what you are longing for.

Overall, I am beyond impressed with these grooming brushes by Magasin. Each one was high quality and stylish. I only have one slight disappointment with this set. I wish that included nail clippers, as well! That way the whole Grooming Set by Magasin would be absolute perfection!

First Botany Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Body and Foot Scrub

Oh, the winter, you are such a bitch to my skin. My skin go from smooth and fresh to dry and flaky whenever you’re around. My feet become gross looking and dry. I assure you no one likes that, winter.

That’s why I was desperate to find a solution for my dry skin, especially my feet. I recently was given opportunity to review First Botany Cosmeceuticals  Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Oil Body and Foot Scrub. I had to  jump on.

First Botany Cosmeceuticals Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Oil Body and Foot Scrub retails for $14.50 on Amazon Prime. First Botany Cosmeceuticals claims that their Anti-Fungal Tea Tree Oil Foot and Body Scrub is great for rashes, corns, calluses, soothing insect bites, warts, and acne.  From reading their ingredients, I can see how their claims are accurate.

The ingredients include tea tree essential oil, 100% pure dead sea salt  epsom salt, sodium bicarbonate, methylsulfonylmethane, jojoba oil, Chamomile essential oil, rosemary essential oil, eucalyptus essential oil, spearmint essential oil, and peppermint essential oil.

Another amazing thing about First Botany Cosmeceuticals is that they’re cruelty free! I don’t know about you, but I hate purchasing products that have tested on animals!
image

Directions are simple. You just have to massage it on wet skin, and rinse off with warm water

I’m sure you are wondering if it works. From the first time I used it, I found that it made my feet smoother. I do honestly believe that you have to use it consistently to get full results.

The smell of the scrub reminds me of margaritas.  One of the few alcohol drinks, I somehow cannot enjoy. However, the smell doesn’t bug me. It brings back sweet memories of eating Mexican cuisine with my family and in laws.

Overall, I think it is definitely worth the money. The price is so reasonable with the high quality and the amount of product you get. I love how wonderful it works with consistent use.

Also, if you can tell in my picture, my child took my scrub to the bottom of the the tub whilst it was open.

4Friends Whiskey Stone Set Review

20160122_105322

Whiskey Stones are the perfect gift for a whiskey lover, who does want his whiskey to get water down. However, it could also be the perfect option when you don’t have room in you freeze for an ice tray, your ice tray always gets spilled, or if you lack an icemaker in your freezer.

We’re renting right now. The house first came with this awful, crappy, old refrigerator that worked like a charm. However, one day it died and they replaced it with a refrigerator that lacked an ice maker. Yay, right? No, I am addicted to my drinks being nice and cold!

4Friends, also, recommend you using for scotch, tequila, vodka, rum, rye, and gin. They should have suggested wine if you ask me! Let’s face after a long day with a screaming toddler, a girl needs a drink.

20160122_105336

4Friends comes with 9 whiskey stones are made out of soapstone. Soapstone is a metamorphic rock that is primarily made out of talc. Here’s some wonderful facts of why you will love soapstone as much as I do: It is nonporous, heat resistant, acid and alkalis resistant, and nonabsorbent. 4Friends Whiskey stones are wonderful shaped in curved edged squares. They’re smooth and wonderful. 4Friends also claim that they are odorless and tasteless. Therefore, it won’t affect the taste of your drink!

You will also receive a felt bag, which is made out felt. It’s lovely and soft. However, as a person who struggles with dog hair. I am not really a fan of felt bags. They’re like lent and hair vacuums. You also receive these adorable small metal tangs that are not the easiest to squeeze. It requires a firm hand. So, it wouldn’t be something that I could have my toddler work on her Montessori activities with even though it is the perfect size. However, it was made for adults, therefore, I can’t really complain about that!

20160122_105453

Instructions are simple. They are: 1.) Wash them 2.) Put in the bag and freeze them. They recommend to freeze them for four hours 3.) Put in your drink and enjoy.

They are re-usable! Just repeat the steps and you’re good!

Now, the fun part the test!

20160122_130644.jpg

After following the instructions, I put them in a glass of water. It’s 1 p.m. here. I don’t think it’s the right time to drink whilst taking care of my toddler! My results were it cooled down my water and kept it cool. I, also, didn’t notice a taste difference at all.

Overall, my experience has been wonderful. I do highly recommend this product.
