I am constantly on the lookout for healthy, cruelty-free products. I feel there is a responsibility to uphold as a digital influencer, which is to be extremely mindful and educated on the products I promoted. While I am still learning, I try my hardest to stay up-to-date by reading science journals and watching documentaries. I really care about your health!
With that said, I’d like to introduce to you Fuel. Fuel is a Vegan hair care line. Meaning there is absolutely no testing on animals nor does it contain any animal products! I was extremely excited to learn the company is also paraben free and gluten-free.
You know I love a great Vegan product. So when I heard that Mineral Fusion nail care is not only Vegan but also free of the big 5 (Toluene, Camphor, DBP, Formaldehyde, and Cruelty Free) I knew I had to get my hands on it. Literally.
I was so impressed with Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan mousse that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to try two other products of theirs. I became wildly interested in the Tough Stuff scrub because I am obsessed with a good scrub. The second product I was curious to test was their Chocolate Whip, because chocolate.
A week later, I received my beautifully wrapped products and began to indulge! First off, hands down love the Tough Stuff scrub. I opened the bottle and the formula is actually pink! What is this amazingness? Where have you been all my life, waiting to brighten up my shower time? I placed a small amount of the pink scrub in my palm and began scrubbing away. Oh it felt so good. Not too rough but definitely got the dead skin off. I was in heaven! My hand felt a little tingly from the abrasion, but my skin felt incredible. I think it is pieces of walnut shell that is used to create the scrub texture. I could be massively wrong about that fact though, but walnut shell is part of the ingredients. The directions stated not to use it on your face, so I didn’t. A proud moment, I actually followed suggested directions.
I can see myself using the scrub at least 3 times a week. Like I stated, it isn’t too abrasive on my skin but wouldn’t recommend it for a daily wash. It is nice to give your skin a chance to breathe and recoup. It is the perfect way to prep for a self-tan as well!
The second product, the Chocolate Whip, I was as excited about as well. I mean how can you not love a product with the word chocolate in it? The formula states it is a great way to hydrate your skin while keeping your tan even. That is completely true. It made my skin feel silky soft, and it is tinted to help with the tan. If you are looking for a product that simply did that, I would totally recommend Chocolate Whip.
The only concern I had was regarding the consistency. When I first place it on my skin it is more watery than expected. When I began rubbing it in, it was slightly sudsy. There were moments I had to make sure I didn’t have to rinse it off later. It takes a few moments for the formula to absorb into your skin as well. Meaning more rubbing than usual. As long as you are aware of these points, and primarily using it as a way to keep your tan longer while staying hydrated it is a great product.
You have no idea how excited I am to review this product! It is nearly impossible to get your hands on Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan mousse because it is flying off the selves at Ricky’s NYC. Probably because Kylie Jenner was spotted on Instagram with the products, but most likely because it is an awesome self-tanner for the winter months to come.
So what makes Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan mousse better than the rest?
Recently I received my first ever set of hair extensions. As a beauty blogger and fashion addict, I was giddy with excitement to get my hands on the luscious extensions by Irresistible Me. The process of ordering the set was simple. Irresistible Me has a video that demonstrates how to match to your exact hair color. The company also displayed real users and what colors, length, and weight they chose for extensions. I ended up with Royal Golden Blonde(#14) at 20 inches and a weight of 200 grams (the heaviest).
The extension came international and took about a week and a half to receive the order. But when they arrived I immediately tried them on! The color match identically to my own hair. I was amazed! The extensions are made from real human hair, which helped create the perfect texture. What I love about the packaging is that there’s one small section that you can open to see if the color matches and if it doesn’t you can return your order for free! Super reassuring.
In total, I received one large clip fastened by 3-clips, two 1-clip-ins, two 3-clips in, and five 2-clip-ins. That’s 10 clip-ins. That’s a lot of extensions.
I quickly learned the best way to apply the extensions is to start at the base and evenly place the clip-ins throughout. This took some time and patients as I had never done anything like this before. With each try, it got a little bit easier and quicker. I think next time I am going to try to create tiny hidden braids to have the extensions to hook into easily and securely.
The overall effect of having the extension in were absolutely amazing. It was an instant transformation. I felt like a model with flowing, long, blonde hair. I love how they made me feel.
