Swiffer Sweep and Trap Photos & Review #NewFromSwiffer

Sponsored Post

You’re probably weirded out by the fact that you’re seeing a sweeping device on a beauty blog.  If you know how I like to keep things clean, maybe you’re not so weirded out.  The long and short of it is, I like stuff spic-and-span but I’m a klutz.  I have kids, but don’t have time or energy for full blown vacuum action several times a day.  So between me dropping makeup pencil shavings all over the floor (I do this at least every other day) and my kids spilling bowls of things, I do quite a bit of picking up.

That’s where the Swiffer Sweep and Trap becomes my lifesaver.  Things fall, I grab this, sweep it up and done.  It’s quick and my back doesn’t hurt when I’m finished.

Swiffer Sweep & TrapThe Swiffer Sweep and Trap is the same Swiffer you know and probably have in your closet, but it can pick up larger items.  This is also convenient because you don’t need to replace batteries, charge it or plug it in.  It’s easy to assemble and features a 360 degree swivel head.

Swiffer 1What I liked the most is that the cloth is dry.  I get concerned about chemicals or products used on the floor because what if my dog thinks it’s water or something tasty and licks it.  Maybe I’m paranoid, but I love my lil furball!

So, the million dollar question.  Does it work?  Answer – not too bad.  Oddly it picked up the heavy screws (nuts? bolts? wtf are those lol) better than the sawdust, though it did get most of that as well.  The sawdust that it didn’t pick up just seemed to be the lighter and smaller particles and they just got pushed around on the floor.

Lancôme DreamTone Review & Photos #DreamTone

Sponsored Post/Press Sample

Lancôme DreamTone is touted as being specially formulated to reduce the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone and color imperfections.  I was given the opportunity to test this product out via a campaign with SheSpeaks and am excited to share my thoughts with you below!

Lancome Dreamtone

About Lancôme DreamTone: DreamTone is the next generation in dark spot correction. This customized skin tone correcting serum is so powerful, 72% of women dare to bare their skin.* The new DreamTone is 3 barely-tinted serums formulated to visibly correct dark spots, color imperfections and give you a more even-looking skin tone. It comes in 3 serums customized for your skin tone: 1- Fair, 2 – Medium, 3 – Dark.

Lancome Dreamtone 2For best results on Lancôme DreamTone you’re to apply twice a day (morning and night, under moisturizer). This serum comes in three shades: 1- Fair, 2 – Medium and 3 – Dark.  Below I’ve been using 1 – Fair, which I was a little worried about because to me I’m not exactly fair, but it ended up being fine for me.

Since using this product a month ago I’ve definitely noticed small changes in the tone of my face.  My makeup seems to apply smoother and there is less of a “winter redness” to my cheeks, so my skin looks more even.  I look forward to keeping up with the routine and getting my skin through the winter blahs!

LancomeDreamToneWhat do you use to achieve perfect skin?

Lancôme DreamTone retails for $98 for a 1.3 fl oz. bottle and is available for purchase at Lancôme.com and department stores nationwide.

Feeling Right at Home with Febreze #FebrezeHoliday

Sponsored Post

We need to talk about the holiday season.  I don’t know about you, but the traffic coming in and out of my house for the holidays borders on insane.  Multiply normal foot traffic by 100 and that’s what we have going on up in here.  I have two kids and a dog, so I’m paranoid about smells. I’m constantly lighting candles, spraying room sprays and air fresheners…

Febreze has the NOTICEables and Set & Refresh sets that look great and will give me peace of mind, and are also very budget friendly!

Febreze Scent StorybookI recently got the opportunity to try the scent Cranberry Cider and it is YUM!  It reminds me of being at my grandparents and feeling comfortable… like I’m home.  It’s so hard to describe, but it’s almost like it relaxes me to sit in a clean house that smells amazing and gets me amped up for holiday.  Plus, I can rest assured that if I forget to light a candle my house is going to smell good and hopefully make surprise visitors feel like they’re at home too.

L’Oreal 318 Natural Buff Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup Swatches & Review

Press Sample

L’Oréal has a new, revolutionary liquid-powder formula available that glides on and transforms on contact to a fresh, powder-like finish for a flawless face. Buff Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup Foundation (shown below in 318 Natural Buff) contains SPF 18 to protect your face while keeping it flawless.

Read below to see more of the review!

IMG_8157 IMG_8160 L'Oreal 318 Natural Buff Magic Nude Liquid Powder MakeupThe formula of Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup might initially seem runny, but as you apply to the face it transforms into a fine, sheer powder that blends like a dream and automatically corrects skin imperfections.

I was impressed that this product covered so well and remained so lightweight.  It kept my imperfections hidden well and I only had to touch-up the powder I dusted over-top one time.  Fingertip application is best.

The only thing I dislike about this product is the packaging.  Though the bottle is small, the glass is rather heavy.  Make sure you shake very well before you apply.

L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude Liquid Powder Makeup retails for $12.95 and is available at mass food and drug retailers nationwide.
