NEW! Urban Decay B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray…out tommorow!

24 Jun

Just when our high-tech makeup setting  sprays were getting a little lonely on the shelf, our product development team  had the brilliant idea to create an antioxidant-rich prep spray. In an exclusive  partnership with Skindinavia, UD launches B6 Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep  Spray. This scientifically advanced formula contains the first stabilized form  of vitamin B6, which absorbs oil, minimizes pores and reduces redness. Spritz it  on any time of day to hydrate, prep and soften your skin with vitamins and  antioxidants. Use it in the morning to prep and wake up your skin, during the  day to refresh your skin (without messing up your makeup), or at night before  your treatment. Versatile enough for people of all ages and skin types, men  included, this energizing formula is great for your skin and it feels amazing.  The more you use it, the better the results.”-UD

Super exciting! I will be purchasing and reviewing…. 🙂

Coconut oil.  This is one product that should be a staple in every household! It smells yummy and can be found easily.  It comes from the Philippines (shout out to my fellow Filipinas/Filipinos!) but Trader Joe’s has it at a good price.  I use it every morning to wash my face and wake up!…but there are hundreds of uses for the stuff! Here’s just some of it’s benefits:

Beauty wise:

  • moisturizes skin (amazingly)
  • can be made into an awesome body scrub
  • removes makeup
  • can be used in place of shave gel/cream
  • use as deodorant
  • smooths frizz and conditions hair
  • cleans makeup brushes
  • prevents acne breakouts
  • smooths appearance of wrinkles
  • and many more!

Health wise:

  • helps eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis
  • lowers cholesterol
  • aids in weight loss (even though it’s a fat, your body uses it to produce energy instead)
  • stimulates metabolism and thyroid function
  • supports the immune system
  • helps control blood sugar for those with Diabetes
  • reduces heart disease
  • improves cognitive function in the brain
  • when applied to skin it forms a protective antibacterial layer for infected body parts
  • speeds up healing time of bruises, wounds
  • soothes bites, heals burns
  • helps treat athlete’s foot
  • is a decongestant
  • helps treat ringworm
  • treats lice, dandruff
  • increases milk flow of nursing mothers when consumed
  • speeds recovery from sickness
  • and even helps treat stinky doggie breath!

There are plenty more uses but I thought these were the most interesting and beneficial.  I’d love to hear what other great uses are out there!
