Touch’N Brow Shaver-Review

Happy Friday! I saw an online article awhile back about face shaving.  While it struck me as rather odd, it really did make sense. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/438397344959697711/

I thought it seemed like a strange idea, until I read that both Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe shaved their faces.

Being a menopausal woman has it’s challenges. One of it being excess facial hair.  I’ve tried all sorts of removal methods, most recently using the personal battery operated shavers. Those worked okay, but they don’t last very long.

I love these shavers!  While they are made for your eyebrows, you can use them elsewhere on your body. A package of 3 cost me $5.29 at Sally Beauty.Touch n’ Brow shaver.

I do use these on my eyebrows, but they work great on my upper lip, checks, forehead,etc. They also exfoliate your skin, which besides the hair removal is a huge plus.

They are so easy to use.  Just use on clean skin, you don’t need water or any type of shaving cream.

I wonder if these were around in the 1970’s? I use to use a Flicker and put cellophane tape over half of it and use it on my eyebrows.  It worked for the most part, except the time I was in a hurry, and shaved off most of my right eyebrow. Not a good look for a 14 year old girl. Of course that was the same year I tried thinning out my crazy curly hair with some thinning shears, and cut most of my hair off the right side of my head. Yeah, for the entire ninth grade I wore my hair in a pony tail. It’s really funny because I didn’t use the Flicker on my legs. That and the fact I was pretty much stoned for all of the ninth grade. Hey, it was the 70’s!

Have a great weekend!

No Lift Nails Cuticle Oil Review

I’m always glad when something good comes out of doing something regrettable.  I did my own acrylic nails about two months ago.  While I loved the look, I didn’t realize how hard the fake nails would be on my natural nails. While doing some research for acrylic nail after care, I came across this awesome product.

Fast forward six weeks later, let me introduce you to No Lift Nails Cuticle Oil. Holy flipping cow!  I kept the fake ones on until my own grew out. I picked some up at Sally Beauty for $6.99 No Lift Nails Cuticle Oil  The ingredients are simple: Avocado Oil, Almond Oil, Vitamin E and fragrance.  It smells amazing. I put a drop on each nail before bed and massage it over my entire nail and cuticle.  The bottle is one ounce.

Cuticle Oil 7-10-16

In just six short weeks, my nails are all long and strong as heck.  My nail polish has been lasting longer, hardly chipping at all.

Here is a photo of my July 4th manicure.  I didn’t feel like redoing my nails, so I painted a silver line where the new growth is.  My nails grew an 1/8 inch in two weeks!  I started out with a wild blue color and just kept adding on.  I do my nails at night, and put this on over my polish, no smudges at all!  I actually filed my nails a bit here, as I wanted them to be squared off. My nails were really brittle before and would always break.  I feel like I have a gel manicure because they are so strong.

I have only used a small amount after daily use for six weeks. I sometimes will put some on my hands. I literally want to gnaw on my fingers because it smells so good.

You can buy it on Amazon, but it’s $10. I actually paid less than $6.99 at Sally Beauty because I have a rewards card. It’s funny because I have been taking 5000 mg of Biotin for months and it wasn’t doing anything for my nails.  This stuff is awesome!

Thanks for stopping by.
