I am crazy when it comes to touching my eye. In college, I almost blinded myself with a wire hanger (It’s a long story). So ever since, I can’t wear contacts; sometimes I have a problem with eyeliner; you get the idea. I was also born with every short eyelashes. My favorite mascaras are the ones that actually make my eyelashes visible! When I was a kid, I remember my mom using an eyelash curler. I tried it once and almost pulled what little lashes that I had out! Ever since, I have stayed away from them since I thought it was a product for people that had more coordination than myself. I was recently given the Crave Naturals Whiplash Eyelash curler and I won’t lie, I kind of cringed at first thought. Although, I am in love with their packaging!
I opened the box and I greeted a pink curler and 5 replacement pads. It was very girly and very cute! I also liked how the handle has a little hook so they stay closed and take up less space.
I decided to suck it up and try it. After all, the eyelash curler incident happened over 15 years ago. I took my time, followed the directions and my eyelashes look amazing! Don’t get my wrong, I am still a little scared every time I try it, but I have been using it everyday and I just try to be very careful. Here is a photo of my lashes after using Crave Naturals Whiplash Eyelash Curler and my drugstore mascara.
I am very happy with the results. They have a sturdy handle and they come with a guarantee. They are under $20 too! If you want to try it yourself, you can find Crave Naturals Whiplash Mascara here.
I have always been a fan of shave gel. What’s not to like?!? It moisturizes and gives a smoother shave. It smells great and a little goes a long way. I also like it because it’s the best product to use to avoid razor burn. I’ve been using it since I first started shaving my legs. When I received a can of Skintimate Mandarin Burst, I was actually excited to shave my legs that night.
As you can see, my pug, Roger, was also excited to be in the picture. He’s sitting beside me while I type too.
Did you know that you can also use shave gel to get tough stains out of clothing? Just lather up and rub on the stain. Same goes for stains on your carpet. My kids love to ‘paint’ with it too. Just squirt some in a resealable bag and they can paint until their heart is content. See? It’s handy to have around. You can usually find a coupon for them too. So stock up when you find a good buy! Enjoy!
Be sure to try Skintimate Mandarin Burst, ladies! I am really enjoying this kind. Combined with my lemon shampoo, I smell divine right out of the shower.
Do you have any alternative uses for shave gel?
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary can of shave gel from CrowdTap. No other compensation was received. All comments and/or opinions are my own.
These guys seem to be all over the place right now. One Direction, that is. You can’t go too far without hearing about them or seeing their faces on something. Have you started to think about Christmas gifts yet? No? Well, you are in luck because I have. There is a new line of cosmetics coming out soon and guess who the inspiration is?
This is sure to warm your teen’s heart since the “The Looks Collection” is made up of three sets featuring their chart-topping albums, “Up All Night, “Take Me Home” and ‘Midnight Memories.” Everything is encased in a cute keepsake tin that has One Direction stencils so you can make it distinctly yours. Each tin has instructions on how to complete the specific look too. I think this is a great buy for any teen (at an age where cosmetics are appropriate) who loves One Direction and beauty products!
I always lose my tweezers. I am a tweezer-loser. I have a pair everywhere too because they go dull or are really cheaply made. I use those babies pretty much everyday and when I can’t find a pair, I go nuts. I feel like everyone is staring at me because I can’t get it together. Well I will fear this no more. I recently tried Crave Precisio Tweezers on Amazon. Here’s a link: Buy me!
Like I said, I am no stranger to a good a good pair of tweezers. These are really nice. They have slanted tips and are sharp. They have a sleek design and they are guaranteed to LAST FOR LIFE! No dulling. No risk. No kidding. I really like that. They are a pricier product than I would normally buy but think of it this way. You will watch them like a hawk since you paid good money for them. Plus, you won’t have to buy a new pair again. Ever. That seems good to me!
I liked them the minute I opened them. They took up permanent residence in my make-up bag. They are not only for me either. When my kids get splinters or ticks or what have you, my Precisio will come into play! I don’t mind spending a little extra on something that will last and the company stands behind it. I’m using them as I type this post! Facial hair doesn’t stand a chance. You can follow CraveNaturals products here:
