Cenoire Novo Atomizer Mist Spray

29 Oct

Cenoire Facial Mist

Winter Skin = Dullness?

Not anymore!

Thanks to Cenoire’s amazing technology welcome the Novo Atomizer Mist Spray.

Not only does the facial mist spray give skin much needed moisture during the colder months but it also help set makeup resulting in less reapplication which can result in skin getting overloaded with too many layers = clogging up pores.

The clean compact design of the Novo Atomizer Mist Spray means you can carry it around in your handbag/pocket anywhere you go, in fact you will want to show this off EVERYWHERE you go.

Nano technology used with the Novo design atomizes water into nano particles allowing fast absorption effectively moisturizing the skin.

$39.99 Cenoire Novo Atomizer Mist Spray

batteries not included. Requires 4 AAA batteries.

While you check out the Novo mist spray take a look at the special Breast Cancer Awareness Eluo Ultra bundle available online now. Not only is the bundle available in a two pack but one comes in pink and the other in lavender so make a donation today and help pay it forward@Cenoire

Beauty during NY Fashion Week

12 Sep


New York Fashion Week 2013 has given us fashion drama, color, prints, the chance to see our favorite supermodels and of course beauty.

Now no one expects the general public to walk around with space alien style makeup on or to pump up their hair every morning BUT we can take a little inspiration…

Orange hues, bright winged eyes instead of the usual black, daring dark lips, bronzed cheeks, high shine, casually swept up hair without the frizz, and baby eyelashes.

What will you choose?

a 24K Beaute Bar and it works!

31 Mar

Beauty Bar_With Bag  I have tested hundreds of beauty products and treatments throughout the years and it never ceases to amaze me some of the claims companies will make in order to sell a particular product. So when I came across Cenoire’s 24K Beaute Bar I immediately thought it was a gimmick, sure a fabulous gold covered gimmick but a over hyped beauty treatment all the same.

I was wrong!

Firstly let me tell you I tested this out at one of my worst facial moments… the hours after a hectic long work week and when a feverish 11 month old baby has finally gone to bed!

I would never have believed anyone if they told me I would see results in two days, I am OBSESSED with this Beaute Bar.

  • My skin felt firmer
  • Refreshed
  • Brighter
  • Less patchy
  • Overall I looked like I had rested up, no more fatigued looking skin!

Another benefit, if you need one, is that the Cenoire Beaute Bar is portable.

My only request for the Cenoire team now is please make a Body Bar equivalent – imagine the results!

BB Cream by L’Oreal

1 Feb


There has been so much hype regarding B.B. Creams that brand after brand began releasing their versions onto the beauty market and it got me thinking about which were just jumping on the bandwagon therefore could not live up to its hype and which actually worked.

So without wasting your time with pointless reviews telling you which did not work and why they are not living up to expectation I give you the cream of the crop (pardon the pun).

L’Oreal B.B. Cream

  • Even coverage, making skin tone appear natural
  • Flawless application
  • Moisturizing, leaves skin feeling soft and clean
  • No need for extra layers such as primer or powder, whereas with some other brands the B.B. Cream seemed to come off quickly making me use primer which defeats the purpose of this type of cream!

This really is a B.B. Cream that delivers on it’s promise:

4 Beautifying Actions in 1

  1. hydrates
  2. corrects
  3. evens
  4. protects

What more could us beauties want?

Have you tried L’Oreal’s B.B. Cream? Do you prefer another brand? Share your secrets with us…

Hand Cream Moisturizing Celebrities

13 Jul

Hand and Nail Therapy

  Wonder how Hollywood celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston and Sarah Jessica Parker keep their hands and nails perfectly nourished?

Mystery solved: Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand and Nail Therapy cream.


Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand and Nail Therapy cream was discovered during the seventies after horse owners realized the ingredients that they were applying to their horses hoofs were also making their own hands become softer. Quick and sometimes unbelievable results were seen with vital nutrients which protect and nourish skin and nails found in the hand cream.

For those of you that think that this might just be another beauty myth let me assure you it is not! I have test a lot of hand creams and never been this satisfied so quickly:

After having tested the Hand and Nail Therapy I could see the difference in my skin after just two weeks, my hands were much less dry and my nails looked healthier. This is one hand cream I will continue to purchase!

  • My skin went from extremely dry and hard to soft and nourished.
  • Almost immediately my nails began feeling stronger, the cream over time protects them against everyday damage.
  • The texture is non-greasy meaning once you have applied the cream to your hands you do not have to worry about touching your iPhone, laptops, etc and leaving fingerprints!
  • There is not a strong fragrance from Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand cream which personally I love as there is nothing worse for me than having my hands smell too strong, especially with an infant who loves sucking on my fingers!
  • The 6oz bottle, available online for $3.49, is a fantastic size for both keeping at home, in the car, or in your handbag and will keep your hands moisturized for months.

A cream that works… that celebrity beauties love… and that we can afford! Mane ‘n Tail Hoofmaker ™ Hand and Nail Therapy
