The Eumora Bar Could Change Your Life #sp

When was the last time you used a bar of soap to clean your skin? Ok, I felt that “ewww” through the computer but don’t write them off quite yet. I want to introduce you to the EUMORA Facial Bars. The brand is based out of Singapore and has sales all over the world. The secret to their formula is the naturally derived ingredients and a combination of Moor, HmA Factor and a good base. To break that down, Moor is a powerful antioxidant mud found in Austria that’s packed with mixture of vitamins, minerals and phyto-nutrients. HmA is a concentration of natural active ingredients extracted from the essence of MicroAlgae, which is found in Hawaii’s fresh water lakes. It’s high in vitamins B1, B2, B3, niacin and helps the skin ward off free radicals. So this is a seriously concentrated facial cleanser!

I found the formula to work pretty like any other facial cleanser and after washing, my skin just felt clean, not tight or dry. And in order to get the most out of this, they recommend you leave it on your face for 3 to 5 minutes. Seems like this should be a requirement of any facial cleanser you use, don't you think? I mean, it's really the only way to fully get the most out of anything you put on your face by letting the ingredients do their work and only time will allow that to happen! Maybe I'll start doing this will all my facial cleansers... Anyway, after the few minutes, just wash it off and let your skin air dry.

Has your skin ever freaked out after starting a new skin care routine? Gets dry, itchy or even cause breakouts? Yeah, mine too (I usually get some pimples in areas). The brand calls this a “healing crisis,” and can be expected with some people when they start using a new product, and with these Facial bars, it’s actually a sign that the ingredients are working so don’t worry, it’s only temporary. Just make sure to use a good moisturizer after washing if this occurs.

There are 4 bars x 25g in each box and each bar should last you about 4 months. So @ $150 for the box, this is actually a tremendous deal! Think about how often and how much you spend on a facial cleanser each year. Get yours @ eumora.com.

They also have a sampling program so you can “try it before you buy it,” which I strongly recommend. The program is launching any second now (literally) @ TryEumora.com, so get on over and try it! Also, on your sample box you receive in the mail you will see a code for a discount on your first purchase of the full size box, so there’s yet another incentive to trying this one out

How to Really Get Your Makeup Done in 5 Minutes

The secret to getting your makeup look done and out the door in 5 minutes is to use multi-taskers like ones that are tinted. Since you don’t have to be as precise with tinted versions, time is on your side. Here are some in each category you should cover in order to at least look polished.  

First up is a Tinted Moisturizer or tinted BB Cream. They can be applied with your fingers or a sponge and not only are they usually available in quite a few shades but they give just a hint of tint so you don’t have to worry about overdoing it. And some even come with a built-in SPF, so you’re saving a few extra seconds on your routine right there! Here are some I recommend:  

5-Minute-Face-Tinted-Moisturizer-recommendations
1. PIXI BEAUTY H2O Skintint $24/1.18oz @ pixibeauty.com

2. BEAUTY ADDICTS Mineral SheerTINT $32/1.25oz @ beautyaddicts.com

3. MAYBELLINE Dream Pure BB 8-IN-1 Beauty Balm Skin Clearing Perfector $8.99/1oz @ maybelline.com and walgreens.com <--- this is a good one too if you are prone to acne.

4. TOO FACED Tinted Beauty Balm SPF 20 $34/1.5oz @ toofaced.com and sephora.com

Just remember that if you do choose one that doesn’t contain sunscreen, make sure you apply some before one of these.

A Glossybox and CosmoProf NA Collaboration!

Are you a fan of the subscription box craze? I have not deboxed one in some time but I got my unboxing on with the latest one from a collab from GLOSSYBOX and CosmoProf North America (CPNA). By now you know what Glossybox is but what is CPNA? It’s one of the biggest beauty tradeshows that takes place in Las Vegas every July, so this year’s took place just a few weeks ago. When I attended the first one ever many years ago, it was different than what it is now, which is more brand-friendly, so I may check out next year’s show.

Anyway, back to this beauty box. The collaboration called Boutique ~ GLOSSYBOX, debuted at the show and allowed attendees to hand-pick 7 deluxe samples from 20 featured exhibiting brands and this one I received to check out came with the following:

Glossybox-and-CPNA-collaboration

  • Mastey Color Protecting Leave In Therapy Spray (8oz)
  • OPI Nail Lacquer in Pink Through It (full size)
  • Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Age-Defying Eye Serum (.5oz)
  • Be A Bombshell Cosmetics The One Stick in Flustered (full size)
  • Skin Nutrition Cell-CPR (.34oz sample size)
  • Royal Apothic Cream Crème Moisturizing Body Crème (.5oz sample size)
  • Kokostar Deep Conditioning Steam Hair Wrap (one piece)

Some pretty great stuff inside this one but know that once this one sells out on their site, that’s it. What I like about this one is that it contained some brands I was not familiar with! Yeah! I love to try new-to-me brands. This limited edition box is $40 and goes on sale @ glossybox.com starting tomorrow August 15th, so make sure you get yours!

Review+Swatches - Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick

I thought we had a brand new product on our hands from DOLCE & GABBANA with these Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipsticks ($36 @ sephora.com and saks.com) but upon doing some research, I found that these are just new added colors to the existing collection. Doh! I just love trying out a new category of beauty product.

What It Is:  A velvety smooth lipstick with a satin gloss center. (the outside core) is matte pigment and a high-shine core that delivers a burst of boundless moisture for an impeccably balanced and sensual effect. Smooth, soft, and deliciously drenching, the Passion Duo Lipstick leaves lips with a sumptuous depth and scale of color.

Wanna know what my take on these is? Click after the jump!
