Karin Herzog Choco2 Face Cream Review

I've always considered myself lucky when it comes to my skin.  Sure I've had the occasional pimple or was inconvenienced by random dry skin or oily skin a times, but it was never out of control or got to the point where it was a stressor for me. I wish I would Read more

La Fresh hello Eco-Beauty Lip Treat Review

Review: Sephora’s Guava Passion Body Scrub

Guest beauty review from beauty blogger I Heart Heels.

This summer, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been “showering” myself with all kinds of beachy scents that smell absolutely amazing. The beach is quite possibly my favorite spot in the world to just sit, relax and think about life. Lately, I’ve been finding myself retreating to the Bahamas or some far away island in the tropics only to snap back to Earth quickly and realize I’ve almost used all of my precious new body wash, ha!

The latest on my summer must-have list is Sephora’s (my go-to beauty store) Guava Passion Body Scrub ($8). The scrub is new to the collection and over the past few weeks has left my skin soft as can be (after all, it does have Aloe Vera and JoJoba!) So what makes it smell so delicious? It mixes guava, mango, pineapple, lily of the valley, monoi de Tahiti, vanilla, and musk for the perfect shower concoction (sounds very similar to that nice, cool drink I like to order each summer, no?)  Read more

But on a daily basis your brows need to be kept up in between waxing and shaping sessions. The best way to do this is with a brow kit. There are plenty of brow kits out there. Our favorite kits include some kind of gel or shaping wax, a highlighter, and also a powder or pencil to fill in the shape… Read more
