Maybelline Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Beauty Balm Skin Perfector SPF 30

   I brought this back when CC and DD cream didn’t exist yet and BB cream was the new big thing. I thought it was just going to be a tinted moisturizer, but it surprised me and actually offered foundatiion level coverage without having a heavy feeling.

   Pros: Offers good coverage. Great Price compared to other drug store foundations. I for one find the packaging brilliant one to two squeezes is all you need to cover your face, and I love that it doesn’t give you to much. And most important to me even though I like to use a different sunblock underneath is the fact that this has spf 30 in it.

  Cons: Price varies by store. Not a wide range of color choices. If you are looking for a lightweight alternative to foundation I highly recommend this for Summer.

    Have you tried it? What did you think? I would love to read your thoughts below or tweet me @princesslondn and kindly follow me on here and on Twitter if you like my posts.

"Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure"

   I have seen the commercial for these nails countless times and have always been interested in trying them, so when I got them I was super excited to try see if they would look as amazing as they did in the commercial. They didn’t live up to the hype though.

Pros:Great price, variety of colors and designs, easy to apply and remove,no nail damage, good variation of nail sizes. Once they are cut down they look like natural nails and if you get one with a pattern you will look like a nail art genius. 

Cons:Fall of way to easily(one fell off after 4 hours.) I reapplied another one in it’s place the next day and it fell of again after half an hour and I didn’t get them wet or use them. Have to be very careful when cutting them down or you will end up over cutting them and the polish will chip at the side. 

 Overall I would give them an 8. If they would have lasted longer they would have been a 10 .

  If you are going to try them make sure your nails are free of polish and filed. If you follow the instructions on the box you might have better luck with them than I did. 

  Have you tried them? What did you think? How long did they last on you? I would love to read your thoughts below or tweet them to me @princesslondn and kindly follow me on here and on Twitter if you like my posts.

Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Body Me

  If anyone read my review of Schwarzkopf Professional Osis+Refresh Dust you know how much I love it. And what goes better with clean fresh hair, than salon style volume?

  I included the picture of Lucky magazine, next to the bottle so you could see the hair style I was trying to create (How amazing does Lily Collins look on the cover?). My hair is super thin and won’t hold most styles like this one. I tried recreating it using my curling iron and super hold hairspray =not a good combo! My hair ended up being super crunchy from the hairspray, and while I love curly hair I try to stay away from hot tools as much as I can.

   The curling iron and hairspray were ditched ,and I decided to try a more “ natural ” approach. I washed my hair and then applied the Osis +Body me and french braided my hair( For bigger curls try a regular braid)  I left it in all day and the next day I took it out and sprayed in some Osis+Refresh dust , and lo and behold it worked ! My hair had the volume I was looking for with salon worthy curls, and it looked like it has just been done thanks to the Osis+Refresh Dust .

  I have done a lot of research about hair thickening products to try and find something to help my thin hair, and most people say there is nothing to thicken hair. But I’m sorry and I have to disagree . This product was created by geniuses . It gave me super volume and it works great as a styling gel as well. 

 Some things I love about it

  1. It gives me fuller thicker hair
  2. It doesn’t have any weird smells
  3. It isn’t tested on animals !
  4. You only need to use a little to get results
  5. Light weight
  6. Didn’t make my scalp feel like it was overloaded with product

 the one thing I dislike about the product was that it felt sticky on my hands. But once it was on my hair I couldn’t even feel it.  

  On a scale of 1-10 this one is  a 10. And if you are interested in trying the product it should be available at Ulta stores and online. 

 *Thank you to Beachhouse pr and Schwarzkopf for sending me these products to review. (While I received these products to facilitate this review all opinions are my own)
