Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel Review

I am 100% honest when it comes to my reviews. With that being said, I have found a product I will use for the rest of my life!

At 31 I still hadn't found a facial cleanser that I felt was for me. My skin is crazy....some days oily, some days seriously dry. I've tried just about every cleanser that Target carries. I've even tried cleansers sold in department stores and in spas. NOTHING has really "fit" my skin.



Until NOW! I received the Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel and was so super excited to start using it. From the moment I squirted the SMALL amount in my hands I knew this different. I'm not sure if it was the consistency {not too thick and not too thin}, or the smell {very fresh and clean} or the fact that it foamed up just as a cleanser should.

Here is what they have to say about the cleanser:
This soap free, foaming cleanser gently washes away makeup, surface oils and impurities without altering skin's natural moisture balance. Contains the anti-aging properties of Alpha and Polyhydroxy Acids (AHAs and PHAs), along with conditioners to soothe and improve skin texture. For all skin types, including sensitive skin. Non-drying and gentle to skin. Dermatologist and allergy tested.

I applied it to my face and could seriously feel my make-up and anything else that had collected on my skin during the day just melt away. And unlike a lot of cleansers it only required ONE wash to remove everything. And by everything I mean, there was no trace of ANYTHING on the white cotton ball soaked in toner that I rubbed all over my skin!

I've used it day and night and it leaves my skin feeling CLEAN and soft with no signs of dryness.

Another AWESOME thing about the Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel is that a little bit goes a long way....SERIOUSLY! The bottle is 7.2 ounces and I am pretty confident It will take me at least 8 months to use it all. What more could a bargain shopper ask for?? ;)

If you have been searching for the PERFECT daily cleanser you really should check out Exuviance Purifying Cleansing Gel!

Luminess Tan Review and a giveaway!!!


Luminess has done it again! They managed to intimidate me AGAIN!

But I am happy to report that just like my review of the Luminess Airbrush Make-up there was NOTHING intimidating at all!



I think I was terrified I would end up looking like this:



or even this.....




BUT I DIDN'T!!!!


I've done other faux tanning options...Mystic Tan ALWAYS turned me orange. I can officially say it is NOT cool to look like an umpa lumpa! I've been sprayed tanned my a human {Mystic Tan is done by a "machine"} and it actually wasn't too bad BUT as it wore off I no longer looked tan but instead looked dirty, like I hadn't bathed in weeks.

The Luminess Tan has NO scent at all! Which if you've ever used the other spray tanning options you know the smell is very odd. And it seems to linger for DAYS! But the BEST part is that I did not look like a Jersey Shore cast mate!

Since I was in control of the stylus I can spray the shade for ME! I used the Deep Tan shade and applied two coats. If you want to go darker then you would just continue to add layers. The Deep Tan color is brown with NO hint of orangeness.....NONE AT ALL!



 I used almost half of the bottle for my entire body. Because I don't plan on being in a bathing suit anytime soon {still have some baby weight to get rid of}I focused more on my legs, chest and arms.





As you can see I didn't go overboard. I wanted my tan to look natural. I think next time I'll go just a tad bit darker.

The machine is SUPER easy to work with. I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to tan myself but found it surprisingly easy to spray my entire body. The only "issue" I had was that from spraying the harder to reach areas {my bum and back} I shook up the bottle which created some bubbles which lead to some sporadic sprays. This was totally my fault and I now know that I need to just slow down and try not to shake the solution very much when it's spraying.



My tan faded EVENLY over time and was completely gone after about 10 days. In the past I've paid $30-40 per spray tan so with a price tag of $149 {you get the system plus 2 bottles of solution} I really feel the Luminess Tan is a great DEAL!

Not only can you stay tan all year long for a FRACTION of the price you would pay for frequent spray tans BUT you won't get skin cancer!



Here is a video of the application. It REALLY is as easy as it looks!

Powermat Review & Giveaway ~ CLOSED

The Powermat is the PERFECT gift for someone who has everything....and also has a compatible device! ;)

According to their website, The Powermat Wireless Charging System provides a simple, fast and efficient way to keep all of your favorite personal electronic devices charged. Enabling your devices with Powermat Receivers allows you to Drop and Charge them on any Powermat Mat to experience wireless charging.

I was able to charge my iPhone 3 and my iPod.

To charge the iPhone it required a receiver case to be attached to the phone. The case is similar to one you would purchase to protect your phone though I didn't feel it would actually provide any shock resistance protection.





To make the Powermat Wireless Charging process as simple as possible you would leave your phone in the receiver case. I found the case for the iPhone 3 to be rather bulky. I believe that this is NOT the case with other phone models. I think their receiver cases are a little slimmer depending on your phone.

Charging the iPod was a much easier....just as easy as plugging it in with the charger that came with it. I actually used the dock for my iPod and my iPhone.


Both methods require you to place the receiver case of dock on a mat.


I did not notice that charging was any quicker than using the charger that comes with the phone. But one difference that I think is GREAT is that the Powermat has an auto shutoff feature. It can tell when your device it fully charges and then power to the device shuts off.

 This not only saves energy but also helps to prevent overcharging your battery which could shorten the life of it.

All in all I really don't have a need for the Powermat Wireless Charging System. I don't think it works any better or faster than the charger that comes with the device. But I do like the idea that the charge shuts off when fully charged.
