Review: Mucinex Maximum Strength & Mucinex DM Maximum Strength #Mucinex #MucinexDM

(product photos courtesy of www.mucinex.com)


'Tis the season. Not for the holidays but for coughs and colds. Already I have had one cold this season (the first in 5 years!) and thank goodness I had received these samples of Mucinex and Muicnex DM to sample. I have long been of fan of these products. If you have any kind of congestion at all, you need an expectorant and Mucinex is the one to have. It is amazing. 

Mucinex and Mucinex DM are two different products but both do essentially the same thing: they are expectorants that relieve chest and nose congestion, thin and loosen mucus secretions and Mucinex DM has the added power to control cough. Mucinex has the active ingredient in it called Guaifenesin. I received the 12 hour kind so it has 1200 mg of the active ingredient. The Mucinex DM has 1200 mg of Guaifenesin and Dextromethorphan HBr 60 mg, which is a cough suppressant. It also lasts 12 hours. Mucinex and Mucinex DM comes in packs of 14, 28 and 42 bi-layer caplets. They are to be taken by adults 12 years and older. Do not use for children under 12 years of age. It is important to consult a physician if you have emphysema, chronic bronchitis, a cough from smoking, asthma or a cough accompanied by too much phlegm. 

When you take either of these pills, make sure to take them with a large glass of water (at least 8 fl.oz.). You will notice that your congestion starts to clear up, your secretions start to loosen up and thin out and you will stay this way for 12 hours long. You may still cough with the Mucinex, but it will be easier to expel the phlegm. That is what an expectorant does. If your cold or cough lasts more than 7 days, a cough comes back, or occurs with a fever, rash or persistent headache, you need to see a physician. These are signs of something more serious such as a sinus infection, strep throat, scarlet fever, pneumonia, etc.  

Next time you have a cold or cough, think Mucinex or Mucinex DM. You will not be sorry! Mucinex Maximum Strength retails for around $18.49 and Mucinex DM Maximum Strength retails for around the same price. They can be found at mass market retailers nationwide, such as Walgreens, Rite-Aid, CVS, Target and Wal-Mart.

Holiday Gift Guide: Google Home #HolidayGiftGuide #Google #GoogleHome #GoogleHomeMini #GoogleHomeMax

Google Home $79.99 (Holiday Special)

The Google Home, priced for sale right now at $79.99, is a home assistant that one uses to ask to play music, find directions, the weather, etc. It does so many things I cannot list them all here. I will try to do my best but it is literally impossible to list ALL the things a Google Home does, because it does so many things. 

When you get it, first unpack the box and plug it in. Then download the Google Home app from the App Store either on your iPhone or Android phone. The app will help to set up the device. It connects with it and you enter your wi-fi password, settings, which music app you want to use (it can connect to either Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora or You Tube Music. I chose Google Play Music because it is free and you do not need an account and I wanted to try it out and see how the stations were. I think I am going to change it to Pandora or Spotify, because whenever I try to listen to Classic Rock (my station of choice, it sends me to some kind of really old music that I am not interested in listening to at the moment). So I tried saying something like "Hey Google, play The Doors" and I get all kinds of classic Doors, live tunes, Led Zeppelin and Classic Rock. A lot of it is B sides that I have never heard which is interesting. 

It also matches your voice so that it knows who it is speaking to when you ask it,"Hey Google", which is how you wake up the device. The device asks for payment information to be stored in the Google Home app just in case you make any purchases, say from www.walmart.com or another store. All in all it took about 4-5 minutes to set up, which I thought was very easy. The app did the work, asked me all the questions I needed and voilà, my Google Home was set up and ready to go!

You can ask Google Home to set an alarm and wake you up everyday or just the weekdays at say 5 am. Ask it to play some jazz. Personally Dave Brubeck is my favorite. Ask it questions like you would www.google.com, such as "Who invented the internet?" or "What sound does a cow make?" I like to set up my alarm, ask it the weather for the next day and ask the latest news briefings. It also has hands free calling. You can even ask it how to say words in other languages! For me that is so much fun since I love to speak other languages. Add your Google Calendar, Reminders, make a shopping list, the choices are just about endless. 

Add smart home features with add-ons to your home that you can purchase from Lowe's or Home Depot. Set up your appliances, thermostat and lights so that they can work with Google Home and have them turn on or off at your convenience. 

New features are being added to it all the time, almost every day and week. That is the great thing about this device, it updates itself and keeps updating itself. Who knows what features will be added next... 
Google Home Max
Google Home Mini

There are other versions of the Google Home available too. There is the Google Home Mini ($29.00), which is just a mini version of the Google Home and the Google Home Max ($399.00). These are current prices and may reflect holiday deals. The Google Home Max was built for music and is the ultimate is high fidelity. It has smart sound, which uses machine learning to automatically adjust the equalizer settings to match the acoustics of your room. This gives you the most balanced sound, wherever you put it. The Google Home Max also has acoustically transparent fabric; dual 4.5" woofers for deep, balanced bass; rigid housing to keep the audio composed and custom tweeters for crystal‑clear highs. 

I'm very happy with the Google Home. It does everything I need it to do. I would like to get some of the smart features enabled to see how those work. My only concern is that those can be accessed through their wi-fi passwords easily, so I am a little uneasy but I think it might be worth it in the end to control a few devices in the house, such as the thermostat, at least. 

The Google Home would make a wonderful gift this holiday season. It is priced right and can be a great gift for anyone. And I mean anyone. Get yours from Verizon this holiday season, as they have dedicated staff that are very knowledgeable about the Google Home.

Happy Holidays!

Holiday Gift Guide: Dome Beauty Holiday Gift Sets #HolidayGiftGuide #DomeBeauty #HolidayGiftSets

(product photos courtesy of www.domebeauty.com)

This holiday season Dome Beauty has come out with two great gift sets that you are sure to love. They have a brush trio and a Holiday Gift Set that I will review below. These are great gifts to give to anyone interested in beauty: a certified beauty junkie such as myself, a makeup artist, your sister, best friend, mother, daughter, girlfriend, aunt, etc. Dome Beauty is known for their avant garde sensibility and beautiful products. 

$35.00 (Originally $65.00)
The right makeup starts with the right brush. Without the right brush, your application will falter and and you will be frustrated. These brushes are designed to respond to varying contours of the face. And these brushes provide the control you need for a fluid, flawless application. The Eye Brush Set includes: Eye Blender, Eye Shadow and Eye Liner brushes protected by our exclusive BEAUTY BRUSH ARMOR. These brushes are made from 100% synthetic hair.

The best way to use the blender brush is to 
gently sweep and blend the eyeshadow color to achieve your perfected look. You can also use the blender brush to highlight just below your brow bone for a glistening finish. 

Dab this brush into eye jewel for a one sweep of color finish or use with diamond shadow to provide dimension to your smokin' look. Have perfect application every single time. 

For that perfect line, every time, use the super tight tip for a defined line or use the side of the brush to perfect that sultry smokey eye. This brush provides precision in eye lining whether smokey, defined, cat eye or winged.

I tried them out and found each brush to be fantastic. Worth every penny. These are great brushes. High quality. 

$70.00 (Originally $90.00)

This set INCLUDES:
This perfectly pigmented mousse-like shadow illuminates your eyes by providing flawless crease-free application and long wear luminescence formulated to moisturize the eyelids. The Eye Jewel light, airy formula allows for a quick dry, non-sticky or heavy feeling that will last all day long.

Using  the Dome Eye Shadow Brush, apply a pearl size amount of the product to the center of the lid and inner corners of the eye, then blend lightly across the lid. For a full glam look use this as your eye liner. 
A unique cake formula eyeliner that defines eyes in as little as one stroke. The silky-smooth application delivers adjustable coverage for day or night. 

Using the Dome Eye Liner Brush, tip into Black Out Gel Eye Liner and follow the lash line beginning at the outer corner of the eye. Boost your look by wetting the brush and creating a more dramatic line.
This unique formula is derived from olives. It provides volume, length, curl and separation. With the addition of Keratrix™ and WideLash™,  Dome Beauty Magnetic Mascara creates a superlative effect that repairs damage, maintains elasticity, lengthens and strengthens lashes. This heavenly mascara will never clump or flake due to the extraordinary brush design that grabs and coats every lash in one stroke.

Developed for everyday use, place the brush at the base of your lash line and lift upward. Use small zig zag motions with the wand to grab every lash. The distinct brush design will distribute product evenly without clumping and form to your lashes, making them longer and fuller. In one fell swoop you will have lashes to die for.
Here are two photos of me wearing the products I received:

After I tried these products I was amazingly surprised at how good they were, Dome Beauty puts out great quality items. This is a company that makes items for consumers that know their makeup.

Review: OLEHENRIKSEN So Nurturing Cleansing Cloths #OleHenriksen #SoNurturingCleansingCloths

(product photo courtesy of www.olehenriksen.com)

30 Cloths/$15.00
Sometimes at night I am just too tired to do a full cleansing routine. It is then that I am thankful for cleansing cloths. I am really thankful for OLEHENRIKSEN So Nurturing Cleansing Cloths. These wonderful cloths nourish dry and sensitive skin and remove makeup in ONE easy step. They have a multi-vitamin blend of ProVitamin B5  and Vitamins C and E, they gently clean, soothe and hydrate the complexion. Every satiny makeup remover wipe instantly sweeps away dirt, oil, makeup and impurities. They contain indulgent moringa and borage seed oils, which are rich in essential fatty acids. Those help to comfort and soothe the skin. Your complexion will look fresh and hydrated with a healthy looking Ole Glow™! Ole believes everyone should feel their best at all times, so he created these cleansing cloths as a “portable spa” to freshen up, calm and soothe skin throughout the day. Personally, I just use them to remove my makeup at night. For me that is their perfect use. 
In a consumer study on 38 women after 1 week of use:
  • 100% of users agree this product gently cleanses
  • 95% of users agree this product refreshes skin
  • 95% of users agree this product softens skin.
  • 92% of users agree this product conditions skin
  • 92% of users agree this product soothes skin
  • 92% of users agree this product smooths skin
Directions for Use: Gently massage a single cloth over face in a circular motion, taking care around the eyes. No need to rinse. Great for removing makeup, dirt, oil and impurities. Follow with the OLEHENRIKSEN products of your choice. For external use only. Use as directed. Avoid contact with eyes. In case of contact with eyes, rinse immediately.

I think these do a wonderful job of removing makeup. Some cleansing cloths leave behind traces of makeup and you need to use a toner or astringent to get rid of the excess makeup. Not with these cloths. I found that these cleansed the skin well enough that I did not need to do that. They come in three sizes: 10 cloths for $8.00; 30 cloths for $15.00 and 100 cloths for $30.00 (which is a steal BTW). 

OLEHENRIKSEN So Nurturing Cleansing Cloths can be found online at www.olehenriksen.com, www.sephora.com and SEPHORA stores.

Review: La Roche-Posay Sunscreens Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 & ANTHELIOS Clear Skin Dry Touch Sunscreen SPF 60 #LaRochePosay #Sunscreen #Moisturizer #ANTHELIOS #TOLERIANE

(product photos courtesy of www.laroche-posay.us)

2.5 fl.oz./75mL $19.99
When you want your bang for your buck you go for as much as possible in a product, right? Well, if you want the best in sunscreen you go to La Roche-Posay. In La Roche-Posay's Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 you get more than your bang for your buck. Not only is it a anti-aging repairing moisturizer that you wear during the day, but it is also a SPF 30 sunscreen which is the perfect combination that I always think cosmetic companies should be doing in their day products. This product comes form 5 years of research and 13 clinical studies in partnership with dermatologists. New dermatological research in skin has demonstrated the importance of a healthy microbiome: the population of microorganisms found at the skin surface. It has now been discovered that prebiotics can feed the microbiome. The SPF 30 comes from the following sunscreen ingredients: Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 5%, Octisalate 5% and Octocrylene 7%. These are all chemical sunscreens and if you are allergic to any of these do NOT use this product. These are not mineral sunscreens. This product is for all skin types, including sensitive skin.It is oil-free, won’t clog pores and is non-comedogenic. It is also fragrance-free and paraben-free. The product has been allergy tested and Dermatologist tested.

This moisturizer has been formulated with a high concentration of La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water and carefully selected skin care ingredients, Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 helps protect and restore the natural skin barrier for healthy looking skin. Used in conjunction with Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer at night, it has a unique prebiotic action on the skin microbiome. Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer UV SPF 30 is a daily facial moisturizing lotion with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 to hydrate, protect, and help reduce visible redness. This moisturizer with SPF 30 contains:
  • Ceramide-3: an essential ceramide naturally found in skin.
  • A high concentration of La Roche-Posay Prebiotic Thermal Water: with hydrating, soothing, and antioxidant properties.
  • Glycerin: a moisturizing agent that naturally attracts water to skin.
  • Niacinamide: a form of vitamin B3 with soothing properties.
This product has won various awards for its efficacy. It won the Allure 2017 Best of Beauty Award. It also won the Redbook 2017 MVP Best Beauty Award and 2017 Self Approved Beauty Award

Directions for use: Use as a daily moisturizer to protect against UV rays, apply to the face and neck in the morning. For best results and the most prebiotic benefits, apply the Toleriane Double Repair Moisturizer at night. It has an oil-free, lightweight texture that absorbs instantly when applied. The bottle should last about 3 months with everyday use. This product should be worn all year round, yes even during the winter months. There is still sun in the winter and snow actually reflects the sun off of the snow causing sunburn. 

I love this product. It goes on easily, absorbs quickly and is the perfect moisturizer for daytime. It is exactly what I have been asking for from companies. A moisturizer with an SPF of at least 30. All skincare companies should have one. Everyone should wear a SPF 30 daily. It is very important for anti-aging purposes to wear this daily. Even during the winter and during rainy days. The sun is always there. Except at night. This product helps to keep aging at bay with the prebiotic microbiome complex. And it actually helps to turn back the clock with its ingredients. It also has Niacinamide, ceramides and thermal water. All of these things together create a nice anti-aging product. 

1.7 fl.oz./50mL $19.99
Another great product from them is their ANTHELIOS Clear Skin SPF 60 Sunscreen. It is a Dry Touch Sunscreen, meaning that it applies to the skin, absorbs instantly and you will not feel the sunscreen. This product absorbs pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity, and won't cause breakouts. It has Cell-Ox Shield™ XL antioxidant technology, an optimized combination of UVA/UVB filters chosen for its more synergistic effect to deliver broad-spectrum protection. This product is 100% oil-free, has SPF 60 and has been formulated to be highly wearable, including for those who typically are reluctant to wear sunscreen. It is water-resistant for up to 80 minutes. The SPF 60 comes from the following ingredients: Avobenzone 3%, Homosalate 15%, Octisalate 5% and Octocrylene 7%. This sunscreen has an optimized combination of UVA/UVB filters chosen for its more synergistic effect to deliver broad-spectrum protection. It also has a powerful antioxidant complex to help protect skin from free radicals caused by UV rays that can cause premature skin aging, thus helping to prevent line and wrinkles. Finally, it has an Anti-Shine complex, which is a combination of Perlite and Silica to absorb pore-clogging oil, even in heat and humidity.

While developing this unique formula La Roche-Posay looked at the most common excuses for not wearing sunscreen, to ensure ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen would be the right answer, even for those who always have a “good excuse”:
  • Excuse #1: “Sunscreens cause breakouts”
  • Answer: ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen is proven non-comedogenic so it won’t cause breakouts.
  • Excuse #2: “Sunscreens makes my skin look oily”
  • Answer: ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen is formulated with a unique oil-absorbing complex with Perlite and Silica providing anti-shine properties to help absorb excess oil and keep skin matte.
  • Excuse #3: “Sunscreens make my skin feel greasy”
  • Answer: ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen has a dry touch texture that provides a clean feel.
  • Excuse #4: “When it is hot and humid out, wearing a sunscreen makes my skin oilier and shinier”
  • Answer: ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen has been tested even in heat and humidity and proved to reduce the appearance of oiliness compared to bare skin.
  • Excuse #5: “Sunscreens have oily textures”
  • Answer: ANTHELIOS CLEAR SKIN Sunscreen is 100% oil-free so it doesn’t feel oily or greasy on skin.
This product has won several awards. It won the 2017 Allure Best of Beauty Award, the 2016 TotalBeauty.com Honorable Mention Best Face Sunscreen, the 2016 O: The Oprah Magazine Best Beauty Products, the 2016 Real Simple Best Face Sunscreen for Acne-Prone Skin and the 2016 Glamour Best Sunscreen. It is recommended for Oily skin and can even be used on sensitive skins. It is paraben-free and fragrance-free. 

Directions for Use: Apply generously to the face and neck 15 minutes prior to sun exposure. Reapply after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating. Immediately after towel drying, at least every 2 hours. Do not use on children under 6 months of age.

Review: Novafab Personal Grooming Razors For Men #Novafab #PersonalGroomingRazorsForMen

(product photos courtesy of www.nova-fab.com)

Novafab Personal Grooming Razors For Men

Novafab makes personal grooming razors for men. They make three types. There is the SoloTrim, the RazorComb and the 2 Pack Combo. The SoloTrim is $1.90 each or $18.99 for a 10 pack on Amazon.com (http://amzn.to/2ByVjbB). It is used mainly for trimming mustaches or beards. It is small, lightweight and can be easily taken for travel. Also just as small and easily used is the RazorComb, which is used for precision trimming, such as eyebrows and sideburns. Women could use this too. It is also $1.90 or $18.99 for a 10 pack on Amazon (http://amzn.to/2yf54FN). This too is great for travel. Finally we have the 2 Pack Combo, which contains both razors in one pack! This is a great value and is $3.40 or $16.99 for a 5 pack on Amazon (http://amzn.to/2kmpYOk). 

My husband used both of these razors and found them easy to use, sharp and able to remove hair with precision and ease. He liked them very much and thinks they would be great for smaller areas such as eyebrows, sideburns, a goatee, a Van Dyke or a small mustache. He did not think they would work for thicker hair or larger beards or mustaches.

Review: StriVectin Advanced Acids Glycolic Skin Reset Mask, Hyaluronic Dual Response Serum & Oleic Rapid Recovery Milk #StriVectin #advancedacids #GlycolicSkinResetMask #HyaluronicDualResponseSerum #OleicRapidRecoveryMilk

(product photos courtesy of www.strivectin.com)

StriVectin Advanced Acids
I am a licensed Esthetician. It is my belief that in order to stop aging of the skin, there are certain things that you can do to the skin to help rectify photoaging that has already occurred. For instance, when I was little I spent a while in the sun and started to experience sun damage on my face in my late 30's. If you have seen my photo you have seen that I have exremely light skin, I am a Fitzpatrick I. I rectified this situation by starting to use AHA peels and antioxidants, peptides, etc. I reversed the photodamage to my skin and you cannot see it with the naked eye except on my arms. I have a lot of freckles on my arms. How does this work? By injuring the skin with peels you create new collagen in the skin, thus fixing fine lines and wrinkles and you actually lighten the skin by getting rid of the melanin too. The antioxidants and peptides also help to serve by helping to prevent fine lines and wrinkles. 

Recently StriVectin came out with some game changing skincare. It is called Advanced Acids. There are three products all tied together by patented NIA-114 molecule and transforming acids (such as Glyclolic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid and Oleic Acid) that help to turn back time to help repair damage and bring skin back to life. The three products are: Glycolic Skin Reset Mask, Hyaluronic Dual Response Serum & Oleic Rapid Recovery Milk. Below are my thoughts on the products. 

1.7 fl.oz./50mL $59.00
The StriVection Glycolic Skin Reset Mask contains micro-encapsulated Glycolic Acid and delivers a gentle yet effective and potent exfoliation to reveal soft, smooth skin. It diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles while also brightening skin and restoring radiance to the the face. The Advanced Acid collection pairs their patented NIA-114 molecule with the most potent, skin-transforming acids for maximum efficacy and results. NIA-114™ and Glycolic Acid, the most effective of the alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA), exfoliates dead skin cells from the face to reveal fresh, baby soft skin. When paired with NIA-114, this potent yet gentle retexturizer delivers ultimate results with minimal to no irritation. The supercharged formula restores radiance and dramatically improves texture in just 5 minutes. 

How To Use: Apply a generous layer of the Glycolic peel over clean, dry skin. Avoid the eye area. Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse with water. For best results use 1 to 2 times per week.

This mask will leave your skin feeling amazingly soft and you will look younger, guaranteed. There is no irritation. It just takes 5 minutes to see a new you. 

1 fl.oz./30mL $79.00
The StriVection Hyaluronic Dual Response Serum is a dual-phase serum with six types of Hyaluronic Acid. It deeply hydrates the skin, improves skin's ability to retain moisture and locks in moisture to visibly plump skin and smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles. NIA-114 + Hyaluronic Acid, a powerful hydrating molecule, can hold 1,000 times its weight in water. Paired with NIA-114, this dual-action serum visibly plumps skin with moisture to bring dehydrated skin back to life. This serum has two chambers. Chamber 1 contains 6 unique forms of Hyaluronic to visibly plump skin with immediate and continued hydration. Chamber 2 combines NIA-114 and ceramides to lock in moisture and prevent water loss. At the push of a button, the dual-phase formula fuses into the ultimate moisture treatment.

How To Use: Apply the serum to a clean face in the morning and evening. Avoid the eye area. Pump once or twice to get enough serum in your hands and massage over face and neck. 

This serum seriously hydrates the skin. It really makes it feel soft and plump. I was surprised at how soft my skin felt after I used it. It is really nice to use after the Glycolic Reset Mask

1 fl.oz./30mL $79.00
Use StriVectin Oleic Rapid Recovery Milk after you have used the Hyaluronic Dual Response Serum. This milk visibly repairs and replenishes skin's lipids for improved firmness and elasticity, it restores the youthful cushion lost with age and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. NIA-114 + Oleic Acid, an Omega-9 fatty acid, helps to replenish skin’s lipid layer, which is an essential component of the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Paired with NIA-114, it improves skin’s resiliency and visibly repairs the signs of aging. Each emulsified drop packs the nourishing benefits of an oil in a fast-absorbing, deeply comforting milk to soothe dry skin and restore a youthful appearance.

How To Use: Apply the milk in the morning and evening. Use the dropper to apply 4-5 drops in the palm of your hand and then massage into the skin. Use after the Hyaluronic Dual Response Serum

As the final step in the Advanced Acids system, I love this milk. It really helps my now drier skin. After you apply a this product your skin will feel very moisturized and soft. It absorbs instantly. 

I am very happy with the new Advanced Acids products, they really help to repair skin and transform it into skin that feels new again. I would highly recommend all three products to anyone who is in need of a new system and is looking for something that does work. StriVectin has always been one of my favorite lines for this very reason. Their products have the backing of scientific reasearch. 

StriVectin products can be purchased online at www.strivectin.com, www.skinstore.com, www.ulta,com, www.qvc.comand www.nordstorm.com. It can also be purchased at Ulta and Nordstrom stores.  Like StriVectin on Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/StriVectin; Follow StriVectin on Twitter: @StriVectin; Follow StriVectin on Pinterest:https://www.pinterest.com/strivectin/ and Follow StriVectin on Instagram : https://instagram.com/strivectin/
