A Nail Hardener That Really Works!

Because I’ve tried everything to get my nails to grow, I’ve turned into a major skeptic as nothing has worked! And believe me when I say every thing but I hadn’t tried PROBELLE Touch N’ Grow Nail Hardener (Formula 1) and I’m a total convert. In almost 4 weeks, it has truly helped my nails not only grow longer but they are not peeling like usual. So how does it work? I looked at the ingredients but eesh, I don’t know anything about nail polish ingredients so I’m filing this one under who-cares-whats-in-it-as-long-as-it-works.

And they also have a Touch N’ Grow PLUS Nail Hardener (Formula 2) but make sure you start with Formula 1 to build the nails because if you start with Formula 2, it won't work. I started with Formula 2 without knowing this. They recommend you use this 2nd formula to maintain nails after achieving the length you want. It contains garlic and lime – the garlic keeps fungus away and lime will keep the nails white. Strange ingredients but ok!! Again, it works so I’m in. $14 each @ pro-belle.com

3 Sheet Masks Helping Me Transition Into Fall

The temps are dropping so giving different parts of the body a little extra TLC is the priority right now. I like to give mine extra love in the form of a facial mask, but not just any mask. One that infuses the nourishing ingredients in a sheet. See below to see what I mean.

Sheet-Masks-from-LaFresh-BioRepublic-and-Kocostar

KOCOSTAR Hair Therapy ($7 @ kocostar.ca) – now this is a unique kinda mask! To use this one, shampoo first and towel dry, then put all your hair inside the mask and close it with enclosed sticker. Leave it on for 15 minutes, really work the formula into the strands and then rinse. It uses keratin and amino acids to quickly penetrate strands and wow, it really softened my hair and kept the frizzies away for a couple of washes.

BIO REPUBLIC Cucumber Breeze Soothing Mask ($6.95 @ biorepublic.com) – if your skin is doing it or thinking of doing it, 1 of their 4 masks will heal it. Choose from the one that detoxes, revitalizes, illuminates, or soothes. This Cucumber Breeze one has kind of become a staple in my Sunday night routine the past few weeks. Buy them one at a time or you can try one of each in their masks in the 4 Mask Set for $24.95 or 2 of each flavor in their 8 Mask Set for $44.95. 

LA FRESH Eco-Beauty Good Times. Facial Treatment Mask ($20 @ lafreshgroup.com) – Hydration, hydration, hydration! You need to give skin more of it when temps drop. This mask uses a cotton and silk sheet (very luxurious!) and infuses it with hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, cucumber, and grape seed, among others.

Are you into sheet masks?

How To Get the Perfect Cat Eye Every Time

And it’s three words – BETH BENDER BEAUTY. I’ve had a lot of practice with all kinds of liners and even though I’ve put in the time, I sometimes find it hard to get the liner on each eye to match. And if I’m in a hurry? Forget about it! But with the Cat Eyeliner Stencil from BBB it’s easy every time. Seriously!
