You have the right to remain curly and save at Jessicurl

To use a highly abused political term, I’ve been flip-flopping on my curly hair products lately.   I am a big fan of the DevaCare line and just had a curly cut a few weeks ago.   But the other day, I noticed that my hair just wasn’t performing well and I decided to revert back to my good ol’ Jessicurl line.  In response to some Rockin’ Ringlets and Confident Coils Styling Solution, my hair behaved beautifully yesterday.  My waves felt soft, not weighed down and without frizz, even on a windy September afternoon.  Oh Jessicurl, how I love thee!

FYI, Jess released some new specials today on the Jessicurl site:

10% off on both products when purchasing 8oz, Liters, or Gallons of Gentle Lather Shampoo and Aloeba Daily Conditioner together here.  You don’t even have to get the same size or scent for both products, just a few extra clicks in the shopping cart “configurator” to pick the details and make your combo.

For the big spenders, $5 flat rate shipping for orders of $100 or more or free shipping for orders of $200 or more.  Discount applies to product purchase amount only, and excludes tax and shipping.

Trial Collections, Rich and Light, both still 10% off. Each pack contains six trial size products, a great gift for the curlies in your life, and also a great way to travel with your favorite Jessicurl products.

And many good hair wishes to you!

40% at tarte, 4 days only!

Starting today, tarte is offering a 40% off Friends and Family discount through Sunday, July 27th.  This is a great opportunity to try or stock up on some fantastic tarte cosmetics. 

My suggestions? 

Looking for a new foundation/ tinted moisturizer?   I highly recommend trying tarte’s smooth operator foundation with SPF 20.  This is my absolute favorite… lightweight, protective foundation smoothes and perfects the skin with potent a SPF 20 sunscreen, vitamins and natural extracts.  My skin looks natural – never cakey – always gorgeous.

Need some gorgeous sheer color on the apples of your cheeks?  Try any shade of tarte’s cheek stains and you cannot go wrong.

And finally, for you women that are mascara junkies, tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes!  is a rich, powerful formula, that will really rev up your lashes.

Another tip, don’t hesitate.  At this discount, supplies are limited, and the best sellers will be out of stock very quickly (as we discovered with the Cosmedicine deal).

Mythbuster Beauty Review: Baby Quasar and Baby Blue

Warning! The photo rejuvenation devices I am about to review are expensive! You may be better off being blissfully unaware of these rather awesome devices. I give you this warning because once you read about what the Baby Quasar and Baby Blue Photo Light Devices can and do for your skin; you will covet them until you finally own them!

What are the devices: Photo Rejuvenation and Acne Clearing Devices

How they work: The Baby Quasar (or BabyQ, as it’s affectionately called) is designed to deliver four light wavelengths (that is amber, red and infrared). The Baby Blue delivers only blue light. This is a picture of the Baby Quasar. The Baby Blue looks exactly the same, but emits a blue light.

What the devices do:   By following a series of photo rejuvenation sessions for six weeks, the Baby Quasar can enhance the skin cells’ circulation, stimulating collagen production and healing. The Baby Blue emits a blue light that kills the p. acne bacteria. Used together, they can reduce the inflammation and redness associated with acne or sensitive skin. The red light causes the release of nitric oxide, which is essential for healing. These devices are meant to enhance and improve the effectiveness of your skincare serums and treatments. Light Therapy is best for individuals with sun damage, redness, broken blood vessels and brown discoloration, including freckles.

My experience:

I was told to start by using the Baby Blue device first followed by a Baby Quasar session for six weeks to achieve the maximum benefits. I used both devices every other day for six weeks and each session lasted for about 35 minutes.

Both devices were easy to use. The warmth from the light felt good against my skin and there was no pain involved. I found the light therapy sessions very soothing, especially after using the Baby Quasar. I noticed that my blemishes seemed to heal more quickly and the number of my breakouts diminished while using both devices. I generally used the Blue Light as a spot treatment on areas where I tend to break out (nose, cheeks and chin), and the red Baby Quasar over the entire face.

I noticed that the Baby Quasar significantly helped diminish my skin’s redness. It was very soothing to my skin. Over the six weeks, I noticed more firmness and softened lines around my eyes, mouth and forehead. My pigmentation issues have improved and are less noticeable on my cheeks and chin. On my cheeks, I noticed some very dramatic improvements including some pigmentation spots fading and completely vanishing.  I have been trying to clear up some very deep small whiteheads on the apples of my cheeks for years, and while using the BabyQ and Baby Blue, these small whiteheads have slowly been surfacing and disappearing!   I have also noticed diminished pore size around my cheeks, chin and nose.

In short, I loved the Baby Quasar. You are going to love what these devices can do for your skin!

You will need to avoid shining the light directly into your eyes or around mucous membranes. I did get a few strange sores after exposing my nostrils to the light. Other than that, I noticed no other side effects or adverse issues while using the Baby Quasar and the Baby Blue devices.

Where do you purchase, and how much:

The price of these devices is very high. The Baby Quasar costs $449 plus $20 s&h at the Baby Quasar site. However, if you look at the cost of going to an esthetician or clinic for Photo Rejuvenation Therapy or Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) a series of five treatments can cost between $1,000 – $2,000. To have a device that can be used at your convenience and indefinitely, you can see how these devices can be a deal. The Baby Quasar devices have a one year warranty from the manufacturer, and the company provides excellent customer support. You can also share the devices with other family and friends.

Special Discount Code: Baby Quasar is offering a promotional code, ‘mythbeauty’ that will give you an additional 10% discount off any Baby Quasar device.

Conclusion: The improvements are subtle and take time, but I have noticed some real benefits while using the Baby Blue and Baby Quasar. I highly recommend using the Baby Quasar.

[Here is picture I took today with a bit of makeup, (but really not that much), and no touch-ups! My skin isn’t perfect, but not bad for a 39 year old mother of five.]

If you are serious about getting the most out of your skincare, purchasing the Baby Quasar would be definitely a step in the right direction. BabyQ really rocks!

Prescriptives: 25% Off Friends and Family Code


If you are or are not familiar with the Prescriptives cosmetic line.  Now is your chance to get 25% off your entire purchase using their Friends and Family Code:  FFSP8 at checkout.  This code is valid until 3.21.08 and is available online only. just announced this code and several gals will be suggesting their favorite Prescriptive items.  I for one purchased their Flawless Face Foundation and foundation brush earlier this year.   I highly recommend this foundation for those with sensitive skin, or skin that is difficult to match, and want natural coverage.  I have also heard very good things, but have yet to try, their Vibrant C skincare lotion. 

One thing that is very unique about the Prescriptives line is their unique way of determining your skin’s undertone.  Until I had had this done, I never knew how cool/blue my actual skin undertone was.  Once your skin tone is determined, they can recommend foundations and shades in color groups specifically formulated to look best with your complexion.  Genius!

As Indiana Farmer Wife said at Meg’s, Prescriptives are like “Garanimals for Grrls.”  Cosmetics that make you look your best, but don’t stand out and scream, “I have makeup on!”  That is a big plus for me as well!
