L. Erickson Ponytail Holders

Using L. Erickson ponytail holders are literally one of the best things I've gifted my hair. They have significantly reduced hair tie related breakage, and basically eliminated breakage around my crown. I have fine and thin hair, which makes me susceptible to breakage, but I do not see strands of hair left on the hair tie when I take these off. I 10/10 recommend these hair ties as they have helped me retain length.

The hair tie stretches and accommodates thick and dense hair. For thin haired people, they are stretchy, and will hold your hair snug without tugging or snagging. They are secure and hold hair in place.

These ponytail holders are around $10 for eight ties. I bought mine from Amazon after reading several positive reviews. Although they may be slightly more expensive than other hair ties, they are durable, and made of non-damaging elastic which can save hair from unnecessary breakage. Give them a try!

Benefit They’re Real mascara review

After trying the Benefit They’re Real mascara, I am extremely impressed with the natural lash lengthening results. The Benefits They’re Real mascara has tiny pieces of lashes formulated into its substance to give longer natural looking lashes without the clump. The fluid has a watery consistency that makes the lashes look natural. The brush is made up of a plastic wand with short bristles that extends to the tip of the brush for easy application onto smaller lashes in the corner of the eye. The bristles also help with separating the lashes. And after wearing the Benefit They’re Real mascara for a long period of time the mascara doesn't smudge. But what I like most about the Benefit They’re Real mascara is that it doesn't clump and make my lashes look over done. Benefit They’re Real mascara is a little bit pricey however you get just a little bit more benefit with the Benefit They’re Real mascara.

Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel Review

Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel is effective at reducing acne scars and improving the complexion and tone of skin. My daughter had repeating acne breakouts. She started using the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel and within 2 months we have noticed a difference in her complexion. To be clear, she had already begun improving before using the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot overnight peel but after breakouts she would have dark spots from the acne scars and uneven skin and a rough texture on her forehead, chin and cheeks. Then after using the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel the healing process intensified and helped fade and remove the dark spots. It even brightened her skin tone and smooth the texture of the skin surface. Her skin is smooth, soft and it looks much healthier. Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel did not require any down time like other skin peels. The Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel was mild and she did not even notice any peeling effect.
What she did was consistently applied the Garnier Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spot Overnight Peel every night and wore a sunscreen in the daytime to prevent sun damage. We are very pleased with the visible results. This product is amazing. We will continue to purchase.

Helena Contrast Waistband Jersey Maxi Skirt review.

This is by far the best fitting and most comfortable skirt I have ever worn. The fabric is soft and in my opinion a good quality fabric. It doesn't wrinkle when you sit down and it holds its shape without stretching and losing its flexibility. The fabric is also lightweight. I brought 2 and I plan to purchase more in different colors. The color that I am wearing is the khaki color.

NYC liquid lip shine review
As an Influenster panel member I received a free complementary holiday VoxBox to try. Inside my holiday VoxBox was a free sample of the NYC New York Color liquid lip shine. And what I especially love about this liquid lip shine is that it is extremely moisturizing and it also has a long wearing shine that can be worn over your favorite lip color or it can also be worn alone. I wear my NYC liquid lip shine a loan when I am dressed casually. In addition I have also applied my NYC liquid lip shine over a colored lipstick to give it extra luster.

imPRESS press-on manicure review
As an Influenster panel member I received a free complementary holiday VoxBox to try. Inside my holiday VoxBox was a free sample of the imPRESS press-on manicure and I love the convenience and ease of putting them on. The set came in a cute nail polish bottle shape. There are 24 nail covers, and 12 different nail sizes. I was able to match up each fake nail with my nail size with no problems. My hands are thin, so it is hard to find at home manicures that will fit onto my nails. The directions are straight forward and easy to follow. You just take the plastic backing off of each nail and apply it to your own nail.  And what I love most is that there was no drying time, and the glue has a strong adhesive bond that is long wearing. These nails are great for special occasions, or casual days when wearing your favorite pair of jeans. Applying them only took 5 minutes and it looks like I had a professional manicure that cost more money that I am willing to pay. These nails are definitely keepers and I plan to continue buying.

Rapid Lash

Rapid Lash

Rapid Lash works well for growing thin sparse lashes. In the past I would wear false eyelashes daily which took a toll on my lashes. Before I started to use Rapid Lash my lashes were so thin that they had bald spots. They were very brittle and extremely short also. I began to see visible results after two weeks of daily use. My lashes were healthy looking and less dry and brittle. After the first month there was noticeable length and thickness in my lashes. I continued the use of Rapid lash for another month and by that time my lashes were completely rejuvenated and even fuller and longer than they have ever been. I gained confidence in my appearance and I no longer was embarrassed about my own lashes. I had the confidence to wear my lashes without mascara. It has been about 9 months now since I stopped using Rapid lash and my lashes are still long, healthy and thick. I am so excited that I no longer need to wear false eyelashes. However, the only negative side effect of this product is the fact that it makes your eyelids darker and also gave me the dark circles under my eyes because I would also apply it on my lower. This issue fades after about a few weeks of stopping. So overall this experience with the darkening of my eyelids and under eye was not a problem because I was able to conceal the dark shades until my lashes regain a healthy appearance. So if you don't have a problem using a eye concealer to hide the dark circles then I recommend the new Lash eyelash growth to help you gain longer and fuller lashes.

Favorable views:

Longer, fuller and thicker lashes.

Not so favorable views:

Dark eyelids, dark circles under the eye.
