Philosophy has a new family member and it's a mouth full to say but here it goes Microdelivery Purifying Peel One-Minute Purifying Enzyme Peel. It contains lactic and salicylic acids and helps to exfoliate, brighten, helps reduce pores and fine line & wrinkles.

the microdelivery one-minute purifying enzyme peel is designed to exfoliate the skin and promote a smoother, more radiant complexion.

  • features & benefits
  • helps improve overall skin tone and texture
  • helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • promotes a brighter, smoother more radiant complexion

I applied it and left on for 5 minutes, since I was at home doing house cleaning. i would not recommend anyone to do that since everyone skin type is different. I rinse off with a warm wash cloth and it really left my skin soft, firm, and brighter.

Review Thursday w/ Olay Advanced Cleansing System

Thursday, February 17, 2011

When I heard about the new Olay Advanced Cleansing System I knew I had to have it and review it. I especially wanted to try it since I own a Clarisonic Mia and wanted to see how the 2 compare. Now Olay is comparing their new system to others and this is in their own words " is as effective as a system sold by skin professionals for nearly $200".*System with normal/dry cleanser. I purchased my system on and got a great deal on it $23.99 (must be a new account to receive this price).

On first view I thought it was fairly small and reminded me of another system out there by DDF  (it's exactly the same $95). It came with batteries and a sample size of Olay Exfoliating Renewal Cleanser. It was really tough to open the bottom part where the batteries go and had to get my BF Peanut to open it for me. The system has 2 speeds and an on/off button. I attached the brush and did notice that it was a bit flimsy. 

It being waterproof I took it to the test and tried it out in the shower. I tried the first speed and felt like I needed a bit more power. I switched over to the higher speed and it felt better but again it felt like the brush would come off and it did. I applied it back and processed to finish my cleansing. 

After using it for 5 days I'm not loving it. The brush fell off 2 times and I enjoyed the cleanser better then the system. In my opinion I just didn't care for it and was really hope it would be better then it was. I think for the price it does it's job but the brush needs to updated to stay in place. I also wish the brush was anti-bacteria like the Clarisonic. So in my honest opinion as always I would give it a C-

Hairy Wednesday w/ John Paul Pet Line & Guest Model Geena Laani

This is our precious dog/daughter and Glam 2 Go mascot Geena Laani A.K.A Nini. She is the princess of the house and Boy does she know it. She's 6 years old and a pure breed Jack Russell Terrier and the most tame one you'll ever meet. Nini was in need of new shampoo and on my visit to Emiliani (pro store) and I came across the John Paul Pet Care line (made by Paul Mitchell). I purchased a Super Bright Whiting Shampoo and a Oatmeal Rinse.

John Paul Pet Super Bright Shampoo: This whitening shampoo is an extraordinary formula that was developed to make coats brighter, while still controlling issues like matting, tangling, and fly-away hair. Salon quality natural ingredients are used to fortify the shampoo making it thoroughly clean rinsing. Super Bright leaves your dog's coat shiny and full of luster.

Oatmeal Rinse: This oatmeal based conditioning rinse is an excellent detangling, rich and restorative formula that adds a silky feel to your pet's coat. This product is also excellent for enhancing the overall level of manageability for your pet's coat by taking out most of the more difficult tangles and mats. The Oatmeal Conditioning Rinse is ideally suited for use after shampooing to restore the silky, shiny, healthy feel to your pet's coat while improving manageability.

So, of course I had to do a before and after pics. Below is Nini's before looking all ruff and trying to get ready for Valentine's night and her beautiful after w/ her Valentine's Day outfit.

Geena Laani After

Her coat looks a lot brighter and really soft and silky. She was super excited and felt the need to run laps around the house. John Paul Pet Care line got Nini's paw of approval.

Sephora Skin Care Review Thursday

Supreme Cleansing FoamInstant Moisturizer
Flawless Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15Instant Depuffing Roll-On Gel
Express Cleansing WipesInstant Refreshing Toner

Sephora has a new skin care line and it FANTASTIC! I got a sample of the Instant Moisturizer in a holiday gift bag and gave it a week test drive to see how it worked. I was really surprised and it being the first time I tried Sephora skin care line was truly impressed.

After trying the moisturizer I decided to try the Supreme Cleansing Foam Cleanser, Flawless Moisturizing Lotion SPF 15  Instant Depuffing Roll-On Gel, Express Cleansing Wipes, and Instant Refreshing Toner. After 2 weeks of trying all these items, they have become regulars in my skin care routine. I use the Instant Depuffing Roll On Gel every morning and does exactly what it says. Takes those morning puffy eyes away and helps brighten & hydrate. The wipes & cleansing foam takes all my makeup off and tones my skin. But since I really like to tone my skin and to make sure all trace of makeup is off I use the refreshing toner. Below is more info provided by Sephora. 

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

What else you need to know:
HydroSenn+ is a plant-derived ingredient that leaves skin feeling soft and luxuriously comfortable. This moisturizer is ideal of all skin types, non-comedogenic, and formulated without mineral oil. 

For my Glammies that were curious about this line I do recommend it and give it an A+.

On my thumbs I decided to add a little design and added pearl heart & ball, clear rhinestone and pink ribbon (purchased on ebay).
