ASW Reviews: Artistry

Good Morning lovely ASW readers!! We made it to another wonderful Friday. I hope that everyone had a joyous and productive week. Today I would like to talk about a few products that a sweet young lady named Christina over at Artistry sent me to try and share with you all. Are any of you familiar with Artistry? For those who may not heard of the company please allow me to enlighten you. Artistry is a leader in the direct selling skincare market. It’s among the top 5 prestige skincare lines in the world, according to Euromonitor International. Artistry sponsor the Miss America pageant, and all of the contests use the line. Also, Artistry worked at NY Fashion Week this year!

I was given a three step hydrating skin care system, light up lip gloss, a mini travel case, as well a time defiance skin refinishing lotion. So let’s get right into it!

This is my absolute favorite lip gloss. Not only does it light up when you open it but it can actually last up to 5 to 6 hours without having to re-apply another coat! Isn’t that amazing? Most of the time we have to continuously apply lip gloss after 3 hours or less because it doesn’t stick and sit properly like lipstick. The lip gloss that I chose was Glitz. It compliments my skin tone and it gives my lips an extra boost!

This was my first time using a three step hydrating skin care system and so far I have really enjoyed using it. From my experience, the cleanser is quite effective at washing away the dirt and bacteria from the environment, as well as any makeup or residue on my face. The toner is the most important step. It has a micro exfoliator that sloughs off dead skin cells, reduces the size of your pores and locks in moisture which is helpful for my dry skin. The hydrating lotion of course infuses moisture into the skin. In addition to the three step care system, I also used the skin refinishing lotion and this product makes my skin feel very soft and it is also used as an exfoliator and firms the skin and helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines by 52%.

I hope you all enjoyed my review and if you interested in purchasing items and finding out more about Artistry, Christina over at Amway would be more than happy to assist you. Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful Veterans Day Weekend!

With Love,

Ashley

Kohls Cares: ELLE Collection

Good Morning Lovely Readers! I hope you all are doing well. As you all know, Tropical Storm Isaac made its way to south Florida this past Sunday and headed west Monday evening. Luckily, the storm wasn’t too intense and no one was severely harmed. There were and still are power outages in some cities and hopefully these issues will be fixed soon.

Anyway, a few weeks ago I was approached by the Kohls Cares team (Supporting Women’s Health) and was asked if I would like to pick out a few items from their special collection created exclusively by ELLE. After browsing through the collection, I agreed to choose a couple of items and write a review to share with you all. This collection runs from July 30 through the end of October. All products in the collection range from $5-$10. Can’t beat that! So let’s see what goodies I chose.

Kohl’s Cares® ELLE™ Eiffel Tower Scarf Priced at $5.00

This Eiffel Tower Scarf is beautiful. It is made of rayon and can be cleaned by machine wash. I already have an idea of what I’d pair this scarf with and the fall season is just around the corner so I will get a lot of wear out of it. For more details and/or to purchase this item click here.

Kohl’s Cares® ELLE™ Thermal Travel Mug priced at $5.00

The Kohls Cares Thermal Travel Mug is amazing! It comes in handy for work, running errands, and could even be beneficial on vacations. In addition to being travel friendly, this mug keeps your coffee or tea warm, clean very easily, and can be warmed up with no problems in the microwave.

The third item that I chose was this navy blue eclectic Girl ToteIt is spacious and can hold a great amount of items. This tote will definitely be my new go to carry on bag when I travel. This item is priced at $10.00!

Kohl’s Cares® ELLE™ Heart Tee priced at $5.00 & Kohl’s Cares® ELLE™ Heart Pajama Pants priced at $10

The final items that I chose were the Heart Tee and matching pajama pants! The T-shirt can be worn actually with a pair of jeans as well. Both items are comfortable and are true to size!

As you can see all of the items are inexpensive and 100 percent of the net profit is donated to help the fight against breast cancer. The collection is available at Kohls 40 Wisconsin stores and online at Kohls.

Thanks for all of your support and I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday ✌.

With Love,

Ashley

Let’s review some hair care products

Good Morning lovelies!!! Happy Saturday! What do you all have planned for today? I have a couple of things that I need to get accomplished today and places to go. But before I do all of that I wanted to show and review some hair products that I have used/tried in the past month. The first product is the one above called Shed No More Normalizing Shampoo. My hair has been doing MUCH better than it has in the past and I am so excited. It has grown out a lot and is thicker as well. But even though my hair has gotten a lot better my hair still sheds a little more than I would like. So I decided to try out this product and see what it would do. Well…it was a complete FAIL! lol I did not see any results and I was quite disappointed to be honest. If your hair has the tendency to shed a little more than you would like and you are looking for a great shampoo to use I would NOT recommend this one. ☒ Let’s move on to the next product…

Kera Care is FAV hair care brand to use hands down. They are just a little pricey lol. Well, one of my friends was suffering from bad dandruff and very dry scalp. She would try and oil her hair as often as she can, especially since she goes to the gym often and you know sweating will make your hair dry. I advised her to go to the nearest beauty supply store and look into getting a shampoo that will keep the dandruff away and not make her scalp so dry. We ended up going to the store a few weeks ago and one of the sales associates recommended Kera Care-Anti-Dandruff Moisturizing Shampoo. She said that it will get rid of dandruff completely. Well folks, my friend used it and on the FIRST wash all of her dandruff went away! She could work out and it not come back and her scalp wasn’t dry anymore either. If you are looking for a product that will make your dandruff vanish I definitely recommend purchasing this product! The price of this product is $16.99 + tax (in stores)! It’s worth it. ☑

Next product! I told you I love Kera Care products lol. This product is my FAV! It is called Kera Care- Conditioning Creme Hairdress. This product is great for when you first wash your hair and you don’t want your hair to be so greasy. The moisturizer is very light and it smells very good. I put it on my hair after I rinse out the conditioner and once my hair is dry I may add a little more before I flat iron my hair. I would definitely recommend this product if you are looking for a great moisturizer. The product costs $13.99 + tax. ☑

Last but not least is the Creme of Nature Nourishing Conditioner .OMG! This stuff is amazing. Not only does it smell yummy but it leaves your hair feeling silky and moisturized. I love it! I am definitely going back to the store and getting the Shampoo that goes with it. I leave it for about 20 minutes and put my Microfiber towel on my head so the conditioner can soak in really well. I’ve found that towel to be very helpful. This is another product that I would recommend. This product only costs $3.99 + tax. ☑

Hair care is very important and you can have beautiful hair when you have the right products. I do have to say that my hair really grew out a lot when I was wearing my hair curly. I wasn’t putting any heat on my hair and it was getting a lot of nourishment from the leave in conditioner and coconut oil that I was using. I got a relaxer last month and my hair is doing pretty good. I wash my hair every week because I go to the gym 3 to 4 times a week and by the 4th day my hair is DONE! The key is to condition your hair and keep it moisturized.

Well folks, I hope that you have enjoyed my hair product review and that it was helpful.
Thanks for stopping by ✌.

xoxo,

Ashley
