Review: Emjoi Light Caress epilator

Hello ladies.  So, I recently purchased the Emjoi Light Caress Epilator Rechargeable & Cordless (the red/burgundy one)...about a month ago.  It is basically a machine with a whole bunch of tweezers taking hair from the root.  There are different kinds that beautychoice.com sells.  I have heard about epilators and have been wanting to try them.  But most recently, my friend let me try her "torture hair remover" from emjoi.  She said it to scare me but when I tried it on my legs, it wasnt too bad!  It was actually addicting.  lol.  So I had to get one of my own.  Watch my video for a live review :-)

HAPPY NEWS!  The black friday sale has already started on beautychoice!  For 20% off, use coupon code TURKEY!  If you catch this after black friday, you can use coupon code EMJALLHDAY for any emjoi epilator until 12/31/10 for 5% off!  Click here for to see the epilators.  Remember about free shipping until the end of the year.  Happy shopping!

Enzo Milano - A clipless iron

Hi girls!  Aime here talking about one of the best clipless curling irons out there.  The Enzo Milano. They come in different sizes but I personally like the 1 inch.  It doesn’t do tight curls.  It gives your hair nice waves.  I use it to get that Kardashian look I love so much.  It only takes me about 10 minutes to do all my hair.  Its different to use than a regular clipped curling iron since this one is clipless.  

Specifics about the iron:
100% ceramic, maximizing the penetration of negative ions while avoiding damage to the hair. Utilizing both the heating element along with the negative ions, Enzo's curls are meant to last up to 10 times longer than any regular curling iron. It heats up to 160 C / 320 F.  

A look using this iron. 

Oh!  almost forgot.  you can purchase it by clicking here!  We found a coupon for all enzo milanos hair tools!  At checkout, put code  ENZO5HDAY for 5% off.  It expires 12/31/10.  Also enjoy free shipping till January 2, 2011.  Awesome huh?  

Talk to you later!

My favorite eye cream

My fave eye cream by far is the Clinique All about eyes eye cream.  

This is the description:
What it is: A lightweight eye cream that diminishes the appearance of eye puffiness, darkness, and fine lines.

What it is formulated to do:
This cream-gel formulation brightens dark circles and sends puffs packing while actually helping to hold eye makeup in place. For use morning and night, both under eyes and on lids.

What else you need to know: This product is ophthalmologist tested and suitable for all skin types.

I love this product.  I've been using it for more than a year now and I'm hooked.  I did try the Rich formula but didnt like it as much as the original.  I suffer from bags under my eyes and this HAS decreased the appearance of puffiness and darkness.  Now, I am NOT saying
it eliminated it completely because, I gotta face it, it's hereditary in my case. :(

If you are in need of a great eye cream, you need to give this a try.  It is so creamy and my eyes always feel hydrated after using.  I also use it right before putting on my AmazingCosmetics concealer and it works perfectly well. It's smooth, creamy, stays on and actually FEELS like it's going to work and doing it's job right away.  There are two sizes:  $28.50 for a 0.5 oz jar and $47 for a 1 oz bottle (which is great because you save $10 if you get the 1-oz jar!).  You can get it
 by clicking here!
