L'Occitane Verbena The Incredible Deodorant Recipe

L'Occitane Verbena The Incredible Deodorant Recipe

The Incredible Deodorant Recipe In Verbena ($19.50; usa.loccitane.com) is new from L’Occitane, a cream to powder finish deodorant balm that is free of aluminum salts and helps combat body odor with a gentle formula. It comes packaged in a small jar and a little goes a really long way with this product. The texture is unique - feels like a hybrid between a powder and a cream, goes on like a balm and dries to a sheer, non-greasy finish. The scent is the fabulous Verbena scent by L’Occitane and the perfect citrusy fragrance for a hot summer day. I use a very small amount of this and love the subtle, zesty scent that doesn’t overpower my other fragrances. I also tested it out on a hot and humid day and found it very effective with no transfer to my clothes. L’Occitane also recommends applying it with a flat brush for even application and rubbing a little on your feet to keep them smelling and feeling fresh. Overall, it's a great deodorant that is super travel friendly and actually feels moisturizing without being greasy. If you like the Verbena scent by L’Occitane, this is not one to be missed!

NYX Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Color

NYX Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Color Review, photos, Swatches

























The Filler Instinct Plumping Lip Color ($8; ulta.com) is new from NYX, a plumping sheer-medium coverage lipstick with a satin finish. The texture is smooth, easy to apply and really does smooth out the lip texture. The plumping effect is subtle, with a slight tingle from the menthol and the formula has other oils and hyaluronic acid that keep it feeling comfortably moisturizing. I’m glad that this one doesn’t have too much of the intense, uncomfortable minty tingle that many plumping products have. The minty taste/flavor is also very subtle and makes it a good one if you don’t like the excessive minty taste in lip products like I do. The coverage is medium and the deeper colors leave behind a nice stain. I do wish they come out with more nudes and pinks that are more everyday colors. Overall, if you are looking for a hydrating lip color with a good amount of pigment that is comfortable to wear and has a slight plumping effect, this is worth checking out!

Kerastase Genesis Haircare | Review, Photos

Kerastase Genesis Haircare | Review, Photos





Genesis is a new range from Kerastase, targeted at dry brittle hair, prone to breakage and helps reduce hair fall. It is great if you have hair that snaps easily and the products help make a difference with regular use. There are two shampoos in the range - the Genesis Strengthening Shampoo for Normal To Oily Hair ($35; sephora.com) and one for Normal To Dry Hair ($35; sephora.com) . My hair is usually oily in the scalp by day 2, and so I liked the normal to oily hair version better than the normal to dry hair. It cleanses beautifully without weighing down, while the normal-dry hair one can weigh down hair a tad.

The Genesis Strengthening Hair Mask ($62; sephora.com) is amazing as a weekly treatment and makes my hair super soft, tangle free and smooth. It is my favorite product from the collection. The Genesis Strengthening Conditioner ($40; sephora.com) is fabulous for days when I don’t use the mask - it's lighter in texture, easy to use and reduces frizz. It also leaves my hair smelling amazing and washes off easily.

The Genesis Scalp Serum ($51; sephora.com) is a lightweight serum that comes with a scalp applicator for easy application. It is a tad perfumed and can be overpowering for sensitive noses, but this is an easy to apply, lightweight serum, although for my hair type, I wouldn’t use this regularly and just skip straight to the styling product.The Genesis Blow Dry Primer ($37; sephora.com)is a pre-styling product that is lightweight, easy to use from the spray bottle and helps protect hair while styling. It does not weigh my hair down and a little goes a really long way with this one.
