Clean it up with @NeutrogenaTweet

Clean skin is a must-have for a fresh face this spring, and NEUTROGENA庐 Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes聽are my go-to face wipe after a long day in the city. These convenient, portable wipes are proven to gently remove 99% of makeup, dirt and oil for clean, fresh skin in one easy step. In one clean sweep, all the makeup and contaminants that get deep into my skin are wiped away, leaving my skin feeling refreshed. After using these, I found that other similar products can be rough and don’t remove makeup and dirt as thoroughly as Neutrogena’s does; it even cleans away eyemakeup and mascara!

We all can agree that after 8 hours in the office, the last thing on our mind is washing our face, but we can’t deny the importance of clean, healthy skin. With NEUTROGENA庐 Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, a nightstand essential, there’s no reason to be too lazy to wash your face 馃檪

Honey I shrunk my Satchel @SweetBeeMagic

I am a huge fan of beauty products and multi functional things have a really special place in my heart! I recently tried the Medicine Mama鈥檚 Bee Magic Wand and I have to tell you about it. The large format is perfect for your lips and all over. Since I am always getting some kind of cut or scrap on me, I have had plenty of opportunities to use this ‘magic wand’.

This is a summer must have for the boots to sandals transitional blisters! What I love about it is the silky texture. It is not waxy at all and the natural aroma/taste is not overly fake or overwhelming. I can wear it for a long time and reapply with no problems or flaking on my lips. This one is a keeper! I wonder if it will work on bee stings 馃檪

It fits perfectly in my Roots Mini Satchel

Car Safety with @Chevrolet @NYAutoShow

To celebrate National Pet Day today, Chevy invited dogs to take over the New York Auto Show for a special car safety demonstration hosted by Pet Lifestyle Expert Charlotte Reed… 聽Jacob loves car rides!

When thinking about buying a car, consider the needs of the family pet. When shopping for a vehicle, review pet-friendly vehicle features and recognize that safety is of top importance for you, your pet and your passengers.

1. Give your dealer the deal!聽Tell your salesperson about your dog and inquire about pet-friendly features of the vehicles you鈥檙e shopping. Discuss: available interior space so that your dog can fit comfortably on the seat or in a crate; easy to clean upholstery and flooring options; tinted windows to keep pets cool and to protect them from harmful UV rays; climate control and rear ventilation; safety windows and locks; hooks and belts to secure pet restraint systems; locations of windows and cup holders; and, easy vehicle entry and exit.

2. Give enough consideration to safety features. According to the 2011 AAA/Kurgo study, three out of 10 pet owners admit to being distracted while driving. 聽One in five admits to driving with a pet in their lap. Look for vehicles with enhanced technology features such as lane-departure warning systems, stability and traction control and forward-collision alerts that can help heighten driver alertness to possible danger.

3.Exterior and interior features are important.聽Look for vehicles that are wide, tall and slightly square at the back. This will make it easier to get pets and pet carriers into and out of vehicles. Cargo room and additional cup holders are useful to stow pet food, water and accessories.

4.In-vehicle technology like power lift-gates that make it easier to let pets in and out of the vehicle.Fold-down seats offer more space for transporting pets and crates. Additional safety and security technology such as remote unlock, vehicle location and crash-detection services helps during pet-emergency situations.

5.Fuel efficiency is good for both your pet and the environment.聽Gas-saving vehicles can save money, leaving more to spend for pet treats and toys.

6. Consider auto insurance that covers pets.聽In the event of a crash, some insurance carriers will pay out a lump sum if your pet is killed or injured in a crash.

7. No matter how much you want your pet to ride shotgun, do not allow them to ride in the front seat or hang their head out the window.聽Pets riding in the front seat can be thrown into and through the windshield. Additionally, air bags can launch out of the dashboard at a great enough force to severely injure a pet. Lastly, a dog with his head hanging out of window can be injured with debris or litter hitting his head or flying in his eye. Pet owners can use crates, safety harnesses, and pet barriers to secure their pets when traveling by car.

8. Get your pet some ID.聽Make sure your pet has proper identification. Just in case he or she gets lost while traveling, you want to be sure your pet is wearing up-to-date ID tags with an emergency contact phone number.

9. Pack necessary supplies when traveling by car.聽Make sure you have and know how to use a first aid kit for pets in the car. Also, carry bottled water for thirsty pets and to avoid stomach upset. Don’t forget a blanket or a towel if you need to transport your pet or have to deal with shock.

10. 聽Before departing your vehicle have things organized before opening the car doors.聽聽Make sure your pet is still secured. Additionally, when taking your pet out of the car, have a leash attached and in your hand so that your pet cannot escape.

Nexxus Frizz Defy Protection Leave-in Oil Shine Treatment Review

After using this treatment I instantly fell in love with the light weight & non-greasy texture of the product. I currently have hombre hair and adding it to my blonde tips was very beneficial on the dry ends. I felt the softness and shine mend my hair right away!

I would suggest using this after you towel dry or blow dry your hair so that it can absorb the nutrients and dry naturally. The smell is really lovely and not too intense. After the second day of using the product I have seen drastic results and beautiful shine. I give this 5 stars and highly suggest this to anyone with thirsty hair!

Get the Nexxus Frizz Defy Frizz Protection Leave-in Oil Shine Treatment for only $12.99. Trust me, it’ll change your life. Here’s a fun fact — the heat from the palms will help activate the product’s key ingredients even before you apply heat from styling tools, so just work it in your hands and get instant results!
