Pinterest Fun Friday: Re-Healing (Fixing) Your Cosmetics

 
 

Every Friday I like to highlight one of my favorite Pinterest finds of the week. This post not only allows me to spotlight some really awesome and crafty ideas but it allows you to see a few Pins you might not have seen this week.  –

I spend way too many minutes’ hours in the day pinning on Pinterest. Now if I could only find the time to make all of these wonderful things I pin! Wouldn’t that be great?

Let’s Get Pinning!

This week I chose to find a simple solution to a multitude of blush palettes I had that were too little to use but the frugal side of my said it was too much to waste. Apparently I have had that idea for a while now because it wasn’t until the other day that I opened up my storage makeup bag only to find that I had three blush palettes that were waiting to be used up or thrown away.

I remembered seeing on Pinterest that you could add them all to one palette and re-heal the blush back together. This was a perfect opportunity for me to try this genius idea to see if it actually worked. What did I have to lose anyway? I was just going to throw this blush away so why not give it a try. (OK so you know I wasn’t going to throw it away, but let’s pretend) Guess what? It works like a charm.

If I don’t use Clinique blush you will find me using a blush by Cover Girl it’s honestly my favorite blush. I don’t care that it’s cheap or not an expensive brand. I care that it’s the perfect shade for me. I haven’t found one yet that is better. Needless to say I go through a lot of this blush so when I found three palettes that were in need of tossing or fixing. I decided to get fixing.

To my surprise this idea of healing your cosmetics works beautifully! I mean seriously it works perfect and in just a matter of seconds. I didn’t even take the time to get a knife or spoon to mix the blush I just used a Q-tip. After all I was in the bathroom and it was a spur of the moment idea so the Q-tip worked.

2015-08-10 09.18.13

What you need:

  • Blush, powder, or eye shadow
  • Alcohol
  • Q-tips

Directions:

  1. Take the remaining product out of each palette and add it to the one you plan on keeping.
  2. To the blush add a few drops of alcohol. Don’t add too much. Start with a few drops then you can always add more if you need to. Once a few drops have been added use a Q-tip, knife, or spoon to start mixing the product together.
  3. As needed add a few more drops of alcohol until your product is well combined. It should be a thick paste.
  4. Flatten the product the best you can. I left mine a bit lumpy in hopes that you could see it a little better in the picture. I didn’t think it really mattered anyway.
  5. Next allow the product to remain open and dry for at least 12 hours. This will help it heal and it will also allow the alcohol smell to subside.  Once everything is dry you can use it right away!

Invivo Essential 4 Ounce Fractionated Coconut Oil Review #invivoessential

bcedd3b55be2f9de5a64cbadc521976ae24d55b0

Fractionated Coconut Oil is a Carrier Oil for Essential Oils. Basically it’s a base oil you use for Aromatherapy and Soothing Massage Oil you should never put the essential oils directly on the skin without a carrier oil just in case it’s too strong for you’re your skin. 

Fractionated Coconut Oil is an unscented base with your expensive organic essential oils to keep them from going rancid, giving them a longer shelf life. Blend with strong essentials like peppermint oil to prevent burns. Odorless, colorless, completely clear.

Fractionated Coconut Oil is fantastic because it stays liquid at room temperatures, not just above 76 degrees like raw cold pressed oil. Fractionated Coconut Oil is also loaded with antioxidants and MCT triglycerides for healing psoriasis, acne treatment, eczema, rash, etc.
There are so many reasons to love Fractionated Coconut Oil! I personally love to use it for my hair skin and even for a moisturizer for your face.

Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle Review #LiveInfinitely


e9c4b015613197cef36323a992a43d898f6a56e7

Lately I have been on a quest for a healthier lifestyle I am sick and tired of being tired and I am tired of needing to lose weight and I am just tired of me in general. I have been eating healthier and drinking more water. In the past I could hardly stomach the idea of water. Plain boring water was the worst to me. I just couldn’t seem to get it down.

Now I have a Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle and I have no problems getting down all the water I need in a day because eat time I refill my water bottle I can choose a new flavor of water. I typically load my bottle up with lemons, oranges and limes and a lot of the time just strawberries. Right now we are in the middle of strawberry season so that because supper easy soon we will see cherries out and affordable so I will be drinking a lot of cherry water too. I can’t wait

The Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle has transformed my drinking habits. Water is now my primary drinks. I am not drinking soda and I am not drinking anything dairy for now. I am just sticking to water and tea, with some fresh juice and smoothies mixes in.

If you are looking to put a different spin on a boring glass of water you should check out Forever Fused Infusion Water Bottle because you will go from boring to wonderful in just a drink of water. I have found more and more creative ways to drink water by using combinations like strawberry pineapple and raspberry peach. They are fantastic.

The last few days I have been drinking fresh made juices and homemade fruit and vegetable smoothies and only having one major meal a day. I have been using the smoothies and juice and a supplement to try and cleanse my body of a lot of the junk. Dinner is normally a hefty salad or something hearty but healthy.

In an effort to cleanse yet keep everything healthy I have been using Enzo Matcha in my smoothies. I love it because it adds a lot of nutrients that my body needs to keep me going during the day. Matcha is a powdered green tea that is loaded full of antioxidants. Matcha is known to boost up your metabolism and help your body burns calories. It is also know to calm you down, enhance your mood, and even aids in concentration. I can certain use more concentration with my finals coming up!

I have found it to be a total asset to my system and I love it. I love the extra nutrients I can get from Matcha like vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium.

Premium Lavender Essential Oil by aVo Essentials Review #essentialoils


7bab02f72ff9ab42460b4429198039fb917acd02

The older I get the more I realize there is so much to love about essential oils. They are amazing products that can do so much for your mind, body, and spirit. I have come to love lavender oil more than I could have even imagined. When I was a kid lavender was associated with someone old … but maybe the older I get I can see the love. I am certainly not old but I do love lavender oil.

I use lavender oil for cleaning up my house naturally with just a little water or vinegar lavender can do so many wonderful things. If I have a room that doesn’t smell fresh just add a little lavender oil to a cotton ball and set it on a shelf or cabinet. It’s a miracle because it cleans the air and removes nasty enzymes that are stinking up the room. One of my favorite ways to use it is to put lavender oil on a cotton ball and place it in the trash can under the liner. My kitchen and bathrooms always smell so fresh. As soon as the liner is changed a new cotton ball is added. It’s perfect and leaves each room smelling fantastic.

aVo Lavender Essential Oil is 100% PURE, PREMIUM, and undiluted, with no chemicals, additives, preservatives or anything else! This lavender oil is vegan, all-natural, and therapeutic grade. Purity and quality are our top priority, and we stand behind the integrity of our products.

 Why Use Lavender Oil?

Lavender Oil is one of the most popular essential oils for its powerful therapeutic properties and wonderful fragrant aroma. This naturally derived oil offers relief for both emotional and physical problems along with the added benefit of being a natural insect repellent.

The smooth, relaxing aroma and healing properties of our Lavender Oil make it perfect for aromatherapy, natural healing, and household use. Our lavender plants are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides or any other harmful additives.

Why Bulgarian Lavender Oil?

As one of the largest suppliers of Lavender in the world, Bulgaria’s unique climate and soil conditions ensure that lavender grown here is of the finest quality. The percentage of air humidity, temperature and precipitation at the right time of the year all contribute to the cultivation of lavender that yields a very high percentage of premium lavender oil. When comparing Bulgarian Lavender to other Lavenders such as French, most people prefer the sweeter, smoother, and less camphoraceous aroma of Bulgarian Lavender Oil over the others. Our oil has an unrivaled fresh scent that blends beautifully with other essential oils.

461d135a411f94fb3896d0ee0a384044d363acd6

Have you ever used Argan oil? It’s something that has become part of my weekly beauty routine. It’s a pure and beautiful product that can be used in some many ways! Foxbrim has a 100% pure Argan Oil that is a must try!

Foxbrim’s 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil makes a wonderful moisturizer in its purest form. I like to put a few drops on my skin after a shower and just rub it in. It’s a nature moisturizer that doesn’t contain all the chemicals that a regular lotion will have. No one wants to have their bodies absorb chemicals just to make your skin feel soft. Using Argan oil will prevent that and leave your skin looking amazon.

Argan oil is always wonderful for a leave in conditioner in your hair or even a conditioning mask that you can apply to your dry hair before washing. Once a week a half hour or more before my shower I like to put a few drops of argon oil in my hair then wrap my hair in plastic. I allow it to sit at least 30 minutes or more so that it can absorb all the wonderful oil. Then I wash my hair to rinse it out. The Argan oil leaves my hair shiny, and conditioned my just like I love it.

It’s amazing how many people will ask me how I get my hair so shiny or what kind of conditioner I use. The answer is always the same Foxbrim’s 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil!

Argan oil can be used in so many ways you are going to want to have a bottle or two on hand at all times like I do.

Couture Gel Nail Polish Review #CoutureGelNailPolish

7a2eec0537716516a7ffe1e7bfa1d9d0bcb1b2ea

I am like any other girl! I love to get my nails done at the nail salon, but I often can’t stomach the idea of paying the absorbent price that a basic manicure cost where I live. There are many places to have them done, but if you are getting a good manicure you are going to pay well for it. I love to get them I just hate to spend so much money for something so simple.

A few other issue I have with getting my nails professionally done is the fear of uncleanliness, and the wait time. Around here you have to schedule an appointment because there is such a high demand. I am OK (not happy) about the wait but I am not OK about the uncleanliness…

A few years ago I got my nails professionally done and ended up with a fungal infections. I freaked out and never went back to that salon. I just couldn’t take a chance.

Couture Gel Nail Polish has come up with a solution! Now you no longer have to go to a salon for a professional manicure now you can do it in the comfort of your home.

Couture Gel Nail Polish has an amazing kit that includes everything you need for an at home manicure! Their kit includes all the products you see below. It’s a wonderful kit!

a88c001ac04009fff8ab40d3ccf6a21c9bededdc

They have over 100 colors of polish which I love! There are so many colors that are must haves! You can get up to three weeks of wear per manicure which is probably longer than most salons can give you.

My favorite part of Couture Gel Nail Polish is that it’s Free from Harmful Chemicals, Made in the USA, and there is no
No Animal Testing! This is such a fun kit! You can get all your girlfriends together for mani-pedi night. Even your kids will love it! The our princess thinks this kit is the coolest thing ever. She especially love the drying light!

If you love a good manicure or if you have a teen that loves to do her nails this kit is a must! What a fun gift to anyone who loves to do their own nails!!

*CLOSED* Ageless Derma Natural Rosacea Relief Cream Review + Giveaway WINNER: W. McHenry

91b9043df8230f9d8a99f02c5f73d8227d667541

My mom has had a lot of problems with Rosacea for as long as I can remember. She gets these red patchy spots on her face which intensify when she is out in the sun. They are dry and scaly and they itch like mad and even sometimes burn. You can visibly see when her skin is irritated and uncomfortable. Nothing has worked for her so far including prescriptions.

When the opportunity presented itself for me to review Ageless Derma Natural Rosacea Relief Cream I jumped at the chance because maybe it would be something that would help my Mom out. Anything is better than nothing if you ask me.

So after a week my mom is already seeing some relief. Her rosacea isn’t gone by any means but she says she can feel a soothing relief. It hasn’t been long enough for her to actually see major changes but I think having some of the discomfort gone is something that is a big plus for her.

55f868ed4887ce94e3fbf3736b901b9f22049ba8

There are a few different products on the market that she has tried but they don’t even do as much as the Ageless Derma Natural Rosacea Relief Cream does for her.

This product only says it will calm and lessen the effects of rosacea and for her it really has. So far she has had nothing but good things to say about it. I look forward to seeing what her results are in the future. For now she thinks this product is wonderful!

Essential Peppermint Oil Review #TopEssentialOil


00b2a596d61da391ebb72c1c7043449633be4ebe

Peppermint Oil has become one of my very favorite products to keep around the house. It’s so therapeutic in so many ways. Not only does it smell amazing but it combats headaches like nothing I have ever seen before. It will help out your sinus issues in just a matter of minutes. My husband puts it on a sock and puts in near his nose to help open up his sinuses.

I personally love it for a great air freshener. I like to put a few drops on a cotton ball and just sit it around rooms in my house. I also love to put a few drops in my bath… you will feel your buns getting pretty toasty 😉

You can’t help but love Peppermint Oil because it can be used as a natural perfume, used in your hair or even in a natural toothpaste recipe. It’s also amazing in tea. A nice hot cup of tea with Peppermint Oil and stevia is fantastic and again will open up your head. Add a little kick to your hot chocolate! Delicious!

I know a lot of people who use Peppermint Oil as a natural cleaner adding a little vinegar, water, and of course Peppermint Oil. Add your new cleaning product to a spray bottle and you are good to go. I also understand that it makes a good insect repellent too! I love natural products! I like my home to smell clean not full of chemicals. Plus I tend to be sensitive to things like the smell of bleach. With Peppermint Oil you can make all kinds of cool products that will replace those that are loaded with chemicals that can make you sick.
