- 2012 Book 180: MONSTROUS BEAUTY Review - The Book Diva's ... Monstrous Beauty by Elizabeth Fama ISBN: 9780374373665 Publication date: September 4, 2012 Publisher: Farrar, Strauss and Giroux Fierce, seductive mermaid Syrenka falls in love with Ezra, a young naturalist. When she abandons her life underwater for a chance at happiness on land, she is unaware that this decision comes with horrific and deadly consequences. Almost one hundred forty years later, seventeen-year-old Hester meets a mysterious stranger named Ezra and feels overwhelmingly, inexplicably drawn to him.
For generations, love has resulted in death for the women in her family. Is it an undiagnosed genetic defect . . . or a curse?
With Ezra s help, Hester investigates her family s strange, sad history. The answers she seeks are waiting in the graveyard, the crypt, and at the bottom of the ocean but powerful forces will do anything to keep her from uncovering her connection to Syrenka and to the tragedy of so long ago. Once upon a time there was a beautiful mermaid and her name was Syrenka.
She lived for hundreds of years off the coast of Massachusetts, enamored with numerous men through the years, until she met Ezra Doyle. Ezra was a naturalist and was excited about learning as much about sea life, its creatures and myths. In 1872 Ezra met Syrenka and they fell in love.
Unfortunately their love was doomed because Ezra was human and could not survive living in the sea and Syrenka was a creature of the sea and could not live on land, or could she? Fast forward to present day and meet Hester Goodwin. Hester is a seventeen-year-old girl that has decided she can never fall in love, marry or have children.
She arrives at this decision because her mother died shortly after her birth. Her grandmother died shortly after giving birth to her mother, and all evidence points to the same occurrence happening to all of the women in Hester's matrilineal ancestry going back to her great-great-great grandmother, Marijn Crotty. If this wasn't strange enough, Hester meets a young man named Ezra in a cave off of the beach one summer night.
For some reason Hester and Ezra are pulled toward one another. As Hester tries to discover what may be causing the women in her family to die after giving birth, and always to a female child, she uncovers more and more strange information about her ancestors and their possible ties to strange and disastrous events in the past. As Hester continues to investigate, at the urging of her new friend Ezra, she virtually ignores her old friend, Peter Angeln.
Ms. Fama has crafted a unique and ghostly love story that spans several hundred years. The mystery and suspense build throughout the story, and kept this reader eagerly turning each page to learn more about Syrenka, Ezra, Hester, Marijn, and Peter.
Monstrous Beauty offers a little bit of everything: romance, touches of horror, mystery, suspense, murder, revenge, mythical creatures, a sea monster, and even ghosts. As a result of all of these elements, it is somewhat difficult to classify Monstrous Beauty , but I think that neo-gothic romance fits. Monstrous Beauty is a fast read that captured and held my attention from the first page until the very last.
Although classified as a YA read, I believe that Monstrous Beauty is suitable for readers of any age. If you're looking for a great read, this is one you should definitely consider. Disclaimer: I received a copy of this ebook free for review purposes from the publisher through ShelfAwareness Pro.

- 3 Custom Color Clarifying Pencil - Review | The Sunday Girl :A ...If you are still a little less than perky since all of the New Year and Christmas festivities and could do with a few sneaky tips and tricks to make January that little easier, then you really need to brush off (or piece together) that debit card you swore you wouldn't use again until at least April...oh well! With the recent influx of nude eyeliners on the market it is difficult deciding which ones are worth the purchase and which are best left alone, Rimmel do a great one but truthfully compared to the 3 Custom Color shade options they do seem a little stark in colour. 3 Custom Color Clarifying Pencil come in two colour options: light and medium and also double up as a concealer when needed to be, who doesn't love a good multi-tasker?
The texture of the 3 Custom Color Clarifying Pencil's can be a little firmer than some eye liners you may be used to but if you give it a quick warm in-between your finger tips it will glide on with ease. The reason you may find it a little firm is due to it being a wax based product which results in the liner staying put all day even should you find yourself caught in a torrential Glaswegian down pour. You can use this pencil however you like, to line, define and as a base to apply eyeshadows on top off but rest at ease it will make your eyes look bigger, brighter and rid you of any signs of redness.
Snap one up now and thank me with your big Bambi eyes later!

Who s dat cute widdle kit?! Wid da pwush widdle cubuh?!
Is it you? Is it you?! YES, it s you!
You re da cute widdle kit!! The two products it protects, a colorless Blot Pressed Powder in Medium Dark and a pinkish neutral beige Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again, are products I would normally reach for any day of the week All For Glamour Touch Up Kit Medium Dark, $39.50 Blot Powder Pressed in Medium Dark and Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again Blot Powder Pressed in Medium Dark and Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again All For Glamour Touch Up Kit: Medium Dark in Blot Powder Pressed in Medium Dark and Sheen Supreme Lipstick in Bare Again (left); and MAC Primped Out Lip Look Bag in Lavish Coral: Lipstick in Shy Girl, Cremesheen Glass in Kiss Me Softly and Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare Blot, as a matter of fact, is one of my MAC staples. I literally never leave home without it, literally, but I think the Blot MAC included in this kit looks and feels different than the formulation I m used to.
I m not sure if the one here is just a bad apple, but when I apply it, it looks cake-y on my skin. Bluh. As for the Sheen Supreme Lipstick, pretty!
but not altogether original. That s okay, I guess. It s lovely, if not entirely dupable.
Eh, Kanye Shrug.
The All For Glamour Touch Up Kit may be cute as a button on the outside, but its products aren t blowing my mind.

- A Beauty Review of Beautifully Disney The Nerd Machine By Angela Dahl (@AngelaDahling) Beautifully Disney, Disney s new make-up line that launched this month, solves the dilemma of how respectable lady nerds can represent their Disney love through grown-up beauty products. The line has all of the ingredients for demand: it s exclusive to the Anaheim and Orlando locations, the products are limited edition, and the simple black packaging is reminiscent of other luxury brands. When I heard the news, I thought my fairy godmother must ve finally granted my wish and sped over to Vault 28 at Downtown Disney faster than Cinderella peacing out of the ball at midnight.
The launch for this season is Wickedly Beautiful, meaning it s princesses vs. villains, brights and pastels vs. darks and glitters.
The pairs are Ariel and Ursula, Cinderella and Lady Tremaine, Snow White and the Evil Queen, and Aurora and Maleficent. The display has the princess products on one side and the villain products on the other (as it should be). There are two eyeshadow quads one of natural princess-type colors and one of smoky villainous-type colors and a lip gloss and nail polish for each character.
The nail polish is of solid quality and probably has the best value out of all of the products. The princess nail polish colors make sense: shiny green for Ariel, creamy magenta pink for Aurora (although there was definitely a missed opportunity to do a blue that reflected pink. I m just saying.), pale blue for Cinderella, and a bright apple red for Snow White.
The colors for the villains don t make as much sense. For one, the color for the Evil Queen, a sheer black with magenta glitter, is confusing. That is one queen who would ve never worn glitter.
They should ve done the lime green of the poison she dips the apple in (and they could ve called it Have a Bite ! Gah!). If you re gonna go with iconic colors for the princesses, the same should ve been done with the villains, for continuity s sake and for the sake of the hardcore Disney fans who will spend way too much time trying to figure why those colors were chosen.
My biggest problem with Beautifully Disney is the price point. When it comes to Disney, you already go in with high price expectations (I think a soda at Disneyland is like $5.00 plus your firstborn now), but $27.95 for an eyeshadow quad is pretty ridiculous, especially considering they don t have testers or a return policy for the products! I was pretty outraged when I found this out.
Like a Maleficent-turning-into-a- dragon and the-Evil-Queen-finding-out- Snow-White-was-still-alive rage. I m pretty beauty product obsessed, but spending $30 on a product I can t even swatch is laughable. The quality is just not worth the price, and that goes for both packaging and the actual make-up.
I can literally peel off the Ariel sticker on my lip gloss, and then it turns back into a pumpkin: an ordinary lip gloss. MAC partnered with Disney about two years ago for a villains collection, so the comparison to MAC products is inevitable. From what I was able to purchase, the lip glosses are basic and nonsticky, but they don t have the lasting power of MAC glosses.
And, from what I ve heard, the eyeshadows don t have staying power too. Either the price needs to be lowered, or the quality needs to be improved, stat. There is so much potential for greatness here, so hopefully there will be some changes, at least in return policy, by the time the next line of products comes out.
The next launch is for the 2013 spring/summer season and is called Unlock the Spell, the advertising for which has a silhouette of Belle.
The launch for the 2013 fall/winter season is called Fiery Spirit and will feature Pocahontas, among other Disney ladies who ve yet to be represented.

- A Brief Breast Actives Review-Does It Really Work? January 14, 2013 Have you been on the lookout for a reliable Breast Actives review? If your answer is yes, then you have just landed on the right spot because in this piece, we will be talking about the product thoroughly in order to help you decide whether it s worth the spend or not. As many would say, we should always be satisfied with what we have been blessed of upon birth.
Then again as women it s always nice to improve the way we look, thus, become more attractive to the male populace. Let s be honest, girls, the breasts of a woman are always a big criterion for most men. Unfortunately, not all women are blessed with big breasts.
But this is not something to really worry about because with the modern advancements, breast enlargement is now made possible. However, not all solutions for this issue can guarantee safety. You can go for breast augmentation through surgery, but there will be risks.
For instance, unsuccessful breast implants can lead to thinning of the skin, pain in the nipples, uneven breast sizes or the worst case scenario, breast cancer. The reason being is that the mammary glands are not always able to adapt the silicone and other synthetic materials the implants are made out of. On the contrary, Breast Actives does not lead to the protrusion of any of these risks.
The product is made out of natural herbs and can be very beneficial in a medical aspect. Every pill is filled with anti-oxidants that can improve skin health and enzymes that have been used to treat various menopausal symptoms. So, how does the Breast Actives work in enlarging the breasts?
First of all, the ingredients of the pills are designed to target the estrogen receptors that helps in the optimal development of every mammary gland. After sufficient intake of the pills say in 2 months you should be able to see improvements with the size of your breasts without having to worry about any harmful side effects. In conclusion, you can definitely rely on Breast Actives.
It doesn t just help enlarge your breasts, it also boost your health in a holistic manner.
Hopefully, this Breast Actives review helped.
- A Hotchpotch Hijabi in Italy: Imaan & Beauty Review: Bobbles ... Maxi Bobble Hijabs As Eid was fast approaching I decided to order an Olive Green Maxi Bobble Hijab from Imaan and Beauty . It arrived very quickly after I placed my order and I was so excited that I unwrapped it on my way to work. It came as a twisted bundle with bobbles at each end which, naturally, was crinkled from being twisted in such a way.
You can either leave them like this if you like having extra volume (as above) or you can iron them flat (as below). The maxi size is perfect for lots of different styles because it's very long and wide which means there's a lot to play with and it's great for coverage. You can fold it in half lengthways and still have plenty of coverage at the back.
The bobbles are only along the ends widthways so you don't have to worry about random bobbles over your eyes like a bizarre fringe! I also wanted to nab some of Imaan and Beauty's new pinjabs because I'm forever making holes in my scarves. I usually just grab a nearby safety pin and think to myself, 'oh this time it'll be fine, it won't make a hole if I'm careful...' and sure enough always snags or gets caught on something and rips!
So to counter this vicious cycle, I purchased two pinjabs: an elegant pinjab and a white daisy one (3.95 euros). I was pleasantly surprised when they arrived because not only were they really adorable but they also came in cute individual see-through pots! The pinjabs themselves are made with very strong magnets - so strong that y ou can attach one to both sides of your thumb and it won't come off!
Don't not store them near each other in the little pots as they'll probably end up sticking to each other. For myself, I think I'll store them on a metal box instead and use the see-through pots for ear rings or small pins. Downsides?
As they are magnet rather than pins you might be concerned that they'll fall off. I've been wearing them at work for about a week now and they've passed the test of staying on all day, even in the presence of very small children. Of course, i f you tug on it incredibly hard, such as the unlikely events of it getting caught on a door handle or being forcibly pulled, then yes they would be pulled apart.
But before you think that's a flaw in the pinjab design, just imagine what would happen if your scarf got caught on a door handle or was pulled and you had a safety attached to the scarf, you'd just get a massive hole (or strangle yourself!) So in this situation, I'd much rather have a magnet which pulls apart without damaging the material rather than sacrificing a beautiful scarf. So really, the only 'negative' thing I can say about the pinjabs is that I tend to pull a face like this when I pull them apart!! hehe!
But it's all worth it in the end and your scarves will inshallah be much safer and last longer with these magnetic pins.
Any thoughts on these products do let me know.
Have you tried any products by Imaan and Beauty?
- A Life Sustained: Weekend Review: Kids in the Kitchen by Sara E ... Whenever I'm working in the kitchen, I can count on my little one wanting to be there next to me, hands full of flour and more tidbits going into his mouth than into the mixing bowl. And it's no wonder. With all of the different textures, smells, and sensations to feel, cooking really does offer a perfect learning environment for children.
There's no need to wait, however, for your kids to be old enough to turn on the stove to get them involved in food preparation. There are plenty of activities that are appropriate for those as young as 18-months and that continue through the elementary school years. Sara E.
Cotner (of the blog Feeding the Soil ) and Kylie D'Alton (of the blog How We Montessori ) give us step-by-step instructions on how to do this in Kids in the Kitchen: Simple Recipes That Build Independence and Confidence the Montessori Way (2012, CreateSpace). The authors open by sharing with us their paths to Montessori and the positive impacts they've seen the philosophy bring to their homes. They are raising happy children who have a healthy sense of themselves as contributing members of their families.
They have achieved this, they say, by providing an environment for that is engaging and capitalizes on the fact that in their earliest years our kids are little sponges ("Absorbent Minds" in Montessori's terms), soaking up everything around them. This book is a nuts and bolts guide on how to create such an environment in your own home kitchen. After the overview of why these activities are important and a listing of the developmental milestones that will be most supported, Cotner and D'Alton get down to business.
There are simple instructions on how to set up your kitchen to best allow your children to participate and explanations of key tools that you will need. Next, they list 20 kitchen skills and give detailed descriptions, both narrative and pictorial, of how to teach them to your child. Finally, there are 10 recipes that are, again, represented in both photos and words.
They close with suggestions on how to take the next step by applying this methodology to other household tasks. This is a very thoughtful and well-planned book that provides a clear path to help your child achieve independence in the kitchen with confidence. I've seen in my own son the desire to be helpful and the pride he has when he's allowed to do these tasks for himself.
I found Cotner and D'Alton's suggestions useful and easy-to-implement and they've inspired me to take the time to allow my son to help more in the kitchen. And it does take time. These are not things to try when you're scrambling to get dinner on the table.
These are activities to share with your child when you have the time to give him/her your full attention. It should be noted that the recipes here are directed towards the kids. In this book you will not find meals that your children can help prepare for dinner.
What you will find are simple, familiar snacks that are likely already in your menu rotation. The value that the authors add is to break each recipe down into individual steps with accompanying photographs that your child can follow on his/her own, thus helping to foster the independence you're teaching along with the basic skills. The goal of the authors is to help you help your child.
To that end, all proceeds from this book will go to Montessori for All , whose goal is to "help all children gain access to an excellent education by opening and leading high-performing, authentic, public Montessori charter schools in diverse communities across the country." If you're unfamiliar with Montessori philosophy, this book provides a tangible introduction that you can easily wrap your mind around and begin to practice immediately. If you're already a Montessori convert, this is wonderful guide that will help you engage with the principles in your daily life. Either way, it will get you in the kitchen with your kids, which is always a good thing.

- A Life Sustained: Weekend Review: Room for the Baby by Michelle ... Told from the point of view of a little boy, Room for the Baby (2012, Random House) by Michelle Edwards is the story of his crafty mama and the many ways community comes together to prepare for the coming of a new child. It all starts in Mama's sewing room with the announcement that an addition to the family is forthcoming. There are two problems, though, there is no room for the new baby in the family's small urban apartment nor do they have any of the necessary things that baby will need.
Both are remedied by the transformation of the discarded sheets, towels, clothing, and mittens without mates that fill every corner of the sewing room. Using Jewish holidays to mark the passing of time, Mama fills the year with knitting and sewing. Sheets become diapers, outgrown pajamas become baby clothes, unraveled sweaters become diaper soakers, and a steamer trunk is refashioned into a crib.
Along the way, all the neighbors donate used items as Mama's raw material and in return they receive handmade items for their own families. When baby Lily finally makes her appearance, she is greeted by family and neighbors, all bearing gifts made with repurposed items and loving hands. This is a very sweet story and there is much to admire about it.
It celebrates community over consumerism, giving over receiving, it encourages creative problem solving, and it demonstrates the ways that eco-friendliness and simplicity can go hand-in-hand with beauty. As a non-Jewish reader, I loved the reference to the Jewish holidays and predict that they will provide a point-of-entry for discussion of these celebrations when my son is old enough to ask about them. The illustrations are bright and colorful and match perfectly the patchwork theme of the story.
This is a great little book and would be perfect to help prepare an older child for the coming of a younger sibling.

- Adidas Women's Energy Boost Running Shoe Review March 15, 2013 The latest offering from Adidas, the Energy Boost ($150), has been out for less than a month, but it's already generating buzz. Dubbed Best Debut in Runner's World Spring Shoe Guide, the shoe was engineered to give runs an extra bounce, courtesy of Adidas's new styrofoam-looking Boost foam, which the company claims provides "more energy return" than conventional running shoe foam. After attending the unveiling of the Energy Boost last month, I've had a few weeks to test out my pair on short and long, indoor and outdoor runs.
Here's what I thought about the Adidas Energy Boost. The shoes aren't minimalist, but they sure do feel like it. I was amazed at how light they felt the women's size 7s weigh in at 8.5 ounces even though the thick sole looks like it would be much heavier.
When running, I liked that the shoe offered extra cushioning and correction, especially on long runs. Since I'm training for a marathon, I've been testing out a few shoes during my long runs, and these are definitely at the top when it comes to comfort. I wore the Energy Boosts on a 13-mile run a week after a similarly long run where I wore a conventional minimalist shoe, and I noticed that the Energy Boosts cushioning helped save my knees from pain.
And while I can't quantify any energy boost from wearing these shoes, my runs did feel noticeably bouncier and more comfortable, both on a treadmill and outdoors. The soft but structured feel of the foam sole ensured that I never felt weighed down or inhibited by the extra cushioning. Besides the new foam, the Energy Boost shoes have other nice design touches to make it a comfortable running shoe.
For one, the flexible mesh toe box encases your toes while still allowing room for them to move while you run. Also, the shoes' midsection acts like a girdle so the shoes stay snug even when the laces are untied. While I did like the snug fit, it's important to note that the shoes run small; I ended up testing out a pair a half-size larger than my normal shoe size and the fit was perfect.
But the narrow fit of the shoe and the amount of foam means that my feet feel a tad too overheated when I wear thicker running socks, so I've been sticking to thinner, non-cotton socks to make sure my feet don't feel hot and uncomfortable. All in all, I love the extra lightweight cushioning and bounce the Energy Boost gives me especially during longer runs and I'll be wearing these shoes for many miles to come! What's Your Reaction?

- Aerin Beauty Lip Gloss in Casis Review: Casis Is Giving My Lips a ... Wearing the new limited edition Aerin Beauty Lip Gloss in Casis ($30), available now at Aerin Beauty counters and online I feel like the greatest pink glosses the epic ones you dream about, and about which you say in casual conversation with other makeup nerds things like, Remember that one pink gloss from the spring 2007 collection? Gawd , I loved that color! are major threats to most of the products I carry in my makeup bag.
With an epic pink gloss that gets the shade just right, one that I feel illuminates my entire face, I m tempted to just wear it and almost nothing else. And when I see one of those pink glosses basking at the bottom of my makeup bag, it s as if it says to me, C mon, Karen, forget about primer, foundation and all that extra stuff. As long as we have each other, a little under-eye concealer, mascara and brow powder, we ll be fine.
For me, Aerin Beauty s new spring 2013 collection Lip Gloss in Casis ($30) is totally one of those pinks. What I love most about this rosy, almost full-coverage neutral pink, other than the ease with which it adds dazzling color to my face, is how smooth it looks on my lips. Casis doesn t settle into my fine lip lines or highlight any dips and crevices.
Instead, it creates a seamless, glassy block of opaque color that looks almost like I stretched a piece of pink vinyl across my pout. Aerin Beauty Casis Lip Gloss also has a doe-foot applicator Aerin Beauty Casis Lip Gloss on my lips The non-sticky, medium-weight formula also doesn t have any fragrances or flavors, and the color lasts from 3-4 hours on my lips. If you are/were considering the dialed-down pigments in Aerin s spring A Garden In Bloom Face Palette, A Garden at Dusk Face Palette or Sweet Pea Blush, I think any of those look lovely balanced with bright Casis.
I just like the way the intense lip color contrasts with those watercolor eyes and cheeks. Casis makes me smile. It s like a MAC Lipglass without the stickiness, and even though it s $30, I still think it s pretty great.
Now I m curious about the other colors in the line. PRICE: $30 AVAILABILITY: Available now at Aerin Beauty Counters and online MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A- Gotta get my vitamins D and C (for cat) We ve been having some unseasonably sunny weather out here lately. Sunny and crisp, and I feel like I shouldn t let the sunshine go to waste, so I think I m going to take a really quick walk, otherwise known as go on a neighborhood cat safari.
Be right back. My buddy Charlize Oh, this is kind of random, but do you get emails from Benefit Cosmetics? If you got one for Fake-Up Concealer today, did you happen to notice MBB??
Ha! It was a little weird reading that this morning. At first it did not compute.
I was like, Hey, that sounds like me. Have a great day today. Let me know how you re doing in the comments.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict, Karen

- Album Review: Spirit Is The Spirit Baktun Baby EP | I Heart Local ... by Nathan Cardiff Spirit Is The Spirit has released the ambitious and dreamy four track EP Baktun Baby, just in time for the beginning of Spring. The EP is the first part of a bigger project that will come to fruition as 2013 continues (I m not sure how much I m at liberty to talk about it, but you should be excited, trust me) and over the course of fifteen minutes gets you ready for the next cycle in life. Part good ol fashioned rock n roll and part surreal pop, Baktun Baby is fun all the way through with a big heart and folk tendencies that give it that warm buzz.
The first track Only After Dark hits close to home with the lyrics, It s been only after dark/that you can really see who you are and from there becomes this therapeutic piece of beauty. Light guitars and soft vocals (with a strength behind them that fills the record) will wrap you up and lift you into the sky. There s something about this song that just draws you outside, sometimes to nowhere in particular.
Or maybe the song is pulling you where you need to go. There s a coziness in wandering with Spirit Is The Spirit, because you don t feel lost. Spirit is the Spirit perform at SXSW 2013 45 Days will have you moving around the room with the great guitar riffs and drums that bounce with the melodies.
It feels like a song seeded in a past era; a rock song that isn t afraid to bring a classic sound to a modern time. The last two tracks may be the most revealing of what Baktun Baby is trying to express. I Believe That We Will Win feels like a space shuttle taking off into the atmosphere, and the folky/lovely/heart-wrenching Lonely will make you feel microscopic compared to the vastness of its message.
Much like the EP s artwork, there s a massive wilderness in front of us all, but spirits to watch over, take care of, and guide us. Spirit Is The Spirit has the confidence to take care, but even they realize what a daunting task that can be. We barely even started out recognizing what s beyond our eyes and the enormity of infinity stand out in I Believe That We Will Win (a mostly instrumental track that gives these few lyrics a chilling conclusion).
Baktun Baby has an out of this world vibe; it doesn t want to be contained. A wonderful record that fills every space in the room and escapes outside to watch over all. Favorite Tracks: Only After Dark & Lonely by Nathan Cardiff Be sure to catch Spirit is the Spirit this Saturday at Czar Bar and on April 4 at Middle of the Map Fest in Kansas City and just for fun, click here to learn more about the beards in Spirit is the Spirit.

- All About Beauty Review |Life In A Break Down | UK | Lifestyle Blog ... Have you heard of the newest box on the block? Run by All About Beauty this box comes in at the higher end of the cost spectrum at 15 (+ 2.95 P&P) but for this you are promised only full sized products - so that extra couple of quid is well worth it. There first box was released in October and they were kind enough to pop me on in the post to have a look at.
I have to admit I didn't read up much on this box before I received it I really wanted it to be a surprise and I will admit when I opened the box and saw no products I recognised I was surprised. That was until I read the included information. As you can probably tell from the picture - All About Beauty is a box that focuses more on skincare (face and body) than on makeup - rewind to the beginning of this year and I wouldn't have given a skincare box a second glance but with hitting my late 20s soon enough it's something I've gotten more into, I've finally realised I do need to look after my skin and stop taking it for granted - so it's come right on time.
The other thing I actually love about this box - and the reason I didn't recognise any of the products is the All About Beauty box is going to be taking a trip around the world bringing to you the best products from all different countries again this is something that I've come to be really interested in of late, meaning it's got yet another box filled on my ever changing list of loves. October saw All About Beauty take a trip to Italy and return with two skincare brands. The first brand is Kipos - this brand is from Turin and are apparently a fore runner in the advanced technology of vegetal stem cell system for the use in skin care.
They have been devised by a group of Marketing Experts, Formulators, Technicians and Laboratory Specialists and were formed back in 2001. All products made by Kipos are dermatologically tested, free of parabens and scent allergens free. The cleansing milk is enriched with Vitamins A, E and Trace elements, which help provide a deep skin cleansing while making sure your skin is looked after.
While the tonic is free from alcohol and contains ingredients such as Myrtle extract, Witch Hazel extract and Trace elements. They are priced at around 12.80 each for 200ml. The third product is also from Kipos and is the Hydracorail Moisturising Face Cream ( 18.30 for 50ml) This face cream is made from things such as Coral Seaweed and Marine Plankton, Germinated Whole Rice, Vitamin E, Green Tea and Jaluronic acid.
It helps to keep skin hydrated, while working to smooth out small wrinkles and while brightening skin tone and softening the skin.
Next up we have a Night Cream for Dry Skin from Dr Lauranne 44.50 for 50ml Dr Lauranne is a company from Rome who have grown from just one product in 1971 to now have a whole host of them and be one of the most prestigious brands in Italy.
This contains SNAIL SLIME!!
