Hair Product Review: Debut of the Swim On Cap

I made myself look silly for you!  I feel like a bonehead but for a very, very good reason! My hair of course. The makers of the Swim On Cap recently sent me a sample to do a video demo and talk about here on my blog. Made specifically for people with long curly, voluminous hair, the SwimOn Cap prevents your hair from getting wet, drying out and becoming matted under the cap. It is made of silicone and is pretty heavy duty. It’s durable for even the thickest mane. It great fro protecting you hair against chlorine, the sun and other chemicals and detergents.

There are plenty of videos out their  showing  you how to wear a swim cap and putting this one is no different but I was asked to do a demo video so that you can see this particular product in action. Here are some important tips to keep in mind while you are putting on your cap:

  • you should tie hair up at the crown of your head.
  • don’t use metal or pointy hair clips because it could pierce through silicone
  • protect your hair from chlorine
  • you want to use your fingers (not your nails) to handle the cap because it could make a hole in the cap
  • place the cap over the crown of your head first. 
  • In my video I give you a full demo of how to wear the Swim On Cap! 

Here are steps to putting on the Swim On Cap:

Health Product Review: Fruit Infused Water Bottle by ChilAqua

I always aim to live a healthy life in a smart way meaning that I try to avoid taking unhealthy shortcuts. Of course that doesn’t mean I am perfect at everything. In fact, I pretty much suck at drinking the appropriate amounts of water on the daily basis. Recently I was introduced to ChilAqua, a water bottle with a built-in diffuser. 

It defuses the fruit throughout the water giving your water a better last and some added nutritional benefits too. 

You can mix your fruit , veggies and even herbs to get the infused flavor you want. The ChilAqua even comes with a recipe ebook so you get some creative ideas of how to mix your water in different ways.

The ChilAqua Infused water bottles are easy to use. It is made of durable Tritan copolyester material which is odorless,tasteless, stain resistant and safe. The bottle is BPA Free, dishwasher safe and trust me on this, it absolutely doesnt leak! Also, the fruit doesnt seep through the holes even after several refills wen the fruit may get a little soggy but thats a different matter all together. 

Beauty Review: Avon's Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask

After a weeks worth of Application.

I promised a review of Avon’s groundbreaking new beauty product, Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask. It is a night mask that works while you rest! Yes, finally something that does the work while kick your feet up and lay on your back! (Oopps! Did I really say that?) Anyway, Avon’s Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask is an ultralight gel mask that goes on like a cream and delivers hydration to your skin. It has been clinically shown to provide 48 hours of hydration in just 1 application. I literally noticed a difference overnight after my first application and no, it didn’t stain my pillows!

So what’s in it? Avon’s Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask contains Encapsulated Hyaluronic Acid and Moisturizing Shea Butter. Even though apparently from my video its got me a bit tongue-tied; hyaluronic acid is one of best hydrators for your skincare regimen and the benefits of shea butter include vitamin A and reduction in inflammation. Avon’s Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask is fragrance-free, paraben-free, oil-free and suitable for sensitive skin. It retails as $30 and you can order a bottle through my Avon rep’s website,

Beauty Review: New AVON Haul Video - Lipsticks, Gels and Fergie!!!

Hey Ladies,

My AVON rep sent this awesome box of goodies which includes the new fragrance from Fergie, Outspoken Fresh which comes out on March 20th! She sent me a weeks worth of samples of AVON’s new night cream from their ANEW line - Avon’s ANEW Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask. It debuted this past Friday, March 6th! She also through in some extra goodies including lipsticks from AVON’s Ultra Color family in BOLD-Coral Burst, SOFT MATTE - Scarlet Siren and SATIN - Crush. I was really excited about the AVON Gel Finish Nail Enamel she included in Glimmer, Parfait Pink and Very Berry.
I’ve tried absolutely everything in the box. First I want to tell you about Fergie’s new fragrance because I think the name describes it perfectly, FRESH! Honestly, (and this is going to sound corny) but when I first opened the package and sprayed a bit on my wrist, the first words out of my mouth were, “Wow, this smells really fresh!” I know, corny but truth be told, I didn’t even check the name of the fragrance on the box. Which in other ways makes me sound lame. Any who, Outspoken Fresh by Fergie is pretty awesome and by now, I am halfway through the bottle because i’m using it everyday! 

Next, I tried the Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask which is Avon’s NEWEST innovation! It’s a mask that works while you sleep delivering instant intense hydration. I’ve used the Anew Clinical Overnight Hydration Mask for a week and have really noticed a difference in my skin. I’ve done a separate review for Avon’s new product which you can read and watch here!

Lastly, I’ve had a field day playing with Avon’s Gel Finish colorsand lipsticks. Here is a peek at the colors but I’ll post a separate review of both the Gel Finish colors and the lipsticks in a few days so check back soon!

Health Review: Probiotic Enzyme Digestive Support by Maternity

I received this product free of charge in exchange for an honest review. I am not expecting but take prenatal vitamin supplements on the regular to boost some essential vitamins for hair/nail growth.  I am considerably knowledgeable about probiotics. However, I am not a fan of consuming probiotics in a pill form. I typically prefer it naturally in food such as greek yogurt. Probiotics have become very popular for people suffering from digestive issues. I don’t suffer from any digestive issues but I am always conscious of keeping my “system” flowing smoothly. 

Finding a complete probiotic formula that doesn’t have junk in it is a bit tough with so many makers on the market. This probiotic mix has 10 different types of active enzymes and 5 probiotic strains which assist the body in breaking down and converting simple sugars, dairy products and proteins.

I definitely appreciate that the capsules are vegetarian and clear so you can see the powder mixture inside.
The price of the product is a bit on the high end considering that I would prefer to eat yogurt. So, I wouldn’t want to start depending on them on a regular basis.  Have you tried these probiotics from Maternity? Let me know what you think!
