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

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?

Nails inspired by my baby boy ✓ August To-Do List

15 Aug

August T0-Do List

Task: Paint my nails in the color of my baby boys play mat (fun childlike colors for him to look at, just because)

A fun lovable “to-do” inspired by my baby boys play mat, pictured to the left with the chosen nail polishes.

Using a teal (Making Waves) by Sonia Kashuk, an icy blue (name unknown) by Collection 2000, an elephant grey (Groovy Grey) by GOSH, a coral (Tart Deco) by essie, and a deep orange (Bright Orange) by Max Factor I went to work while my baby slept.

The next morning his little face perked up at the sight of my nails and the color painted on however his playfulness could also have been the result of his good nights sleep, milk intake, or being my Little Buddha baby – frankly his happy gurgles could have absolutely nothing to do with me! But it’s nice to think I might have had something to do with it 🙂

Ticked off so far: Paint My Nails A Neon Hue

Spoiled Neon “Tip Your Waitress” by Wet n Wild

15 Aug

Tip Your Waitress

August To-Do List

 I am getting my August to-do list ticked off and this is one to-do list that is not causing stress, in fact it is making me feel light on my feet and has me more than excited!

 Task: Paint my nails a neon hue

The only hard thing about this “to-do” was finding the neon shade I wanted! I decided to test out a brand I had never tried before so went to my local CVS and spotted Spoiled by Wet n Wild, exclusive to the store.

There were several neon hues and I settled on SO11 called Tip Your Waitress, a bright pink that part reminds me of my childhood Barbie and partly of a hot summer vacation!

Tip Your Waitress

  • One of the best neon hues I have ever worn and I have tested out a few including neon yellows, oranges and greens.
  • Fantastic for both finger nails and toe nails.
  • BARGAIN PRICE, $1.99!! 
  • I am actually still in shock over the $1.99 price tag, never have I found such good quality nail polish for such an amazing bargain price! This is definitely one brand I will be buying more of!

SPOILED by Wet n Wild

Exclusive to CVS stores across America, 72 shades are currently available. All colors are toluene, phthalate and form-aldehyde free. Follow @wetnwildbeauty or follow CVS Stores @CVS_Extra

Which will you wear this month?
