Tips for Light Travel: Toiletries 101
June 23, 2011
With your vacation planned, your clothes picked out and a beach in Hawaii awaiting your arrival, only one obstacle remains: packing. Like all of us, you just don't know how you're going to get everything you need for your trip in one suitcase. Especially with airline regulations about number of bags, size of bags and size of toiletries, packing is truly becoming an art! Because you want to look good on your vacation, investing in quality toiletries in airline and travel ready sizes is essential. The week that you plan on taking two hundred pictures is NOT the week to be depending upon some hotel travel shampoo, nor is it the week to pack less clothes just to fit in your full-sized salon products. So, to help a sista out, here are a couple of excellent travel sets to make your travel plans WAY easier: For Your Hair: The Blow to Go Travel Kit. Including four products specifically designed for heat styling, of the highest salon quality, this convenient kit is packaged in 2 oz airplane ready bottles, even packed in a small, clear plastic bag. Did we mention how CUTE this thing is!? ($28) For Your Skin: Juara Glow on the Go Travel Kit. Also in travel sizes (all under 2 oz), and packaged in a clear plastic bag, the Glow to Go Kit addresses all of your toiletry needs, including facial cleanser, facial mask, hydrating toner, moisturizer and body balm. In lovely packaging and suitcase-friendly sizes.($36) Cosmetics: Bella Il Fiore Face Palettes. MakeUp doesn't travel well, but vacation is not the time to be skimping on quality cosmetics. Take care of the space and travel issues with a multi-use color palette, including beautiful colors and a range of texture and formulas to accommodate eyes, lips and cheeks in one small palette. Beautifully packaged and expertly coordinated. ($20)
Product Review: Juara Candlenut Body Creme
September 08, 2010 1 Comment
For the month of September, Beauty of a Site is partnering with Juara to offer ALL of their incredible skincare products at 15% off- all month long, on any sized order! In honor of those momentous occasion, I wanted to try out one of their most popular products: The Candlenut Body Creme. First impressions: Hello tropical. It's not an overpowering tanning oil-infused tropical smell, but a soft, calm, relaxing nutty smell (reminiscent of coconut). I hate overpowering fragrances, and this formula featured the perfect balance. Consistency: As a body creme, the product is definitely thick and creamy, but not in any way heavy. The moisturizer almost feels whipped; light enough to soak in, but thick enough to nourish the skin. Result: Skin feels silky, not sticky, but deeply moisturized. The scent lingers slightly, which has a surprisingly powerful calming effect! I actually used the product on recently sunburnt skin, and was amazed by how soothing the creme was! It isn't necessarily designed for healing, but it was so moisturizing that I felt serious improvement. Usage: Because of the creme's thick consistency, a little goes a LONG way! I used a .17 oz sample and was able to apply the creme liberally on both my arms and legs. Success! I highly suggest giving this body creme a try, particularly at such a great price!
