B.A.D. Girl Review: Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair #RapidResults

I am all about my skin and keeping it tight so I was thrilled to try out the Neutrogena Rapid Repair product line, which promises to deliver #RapidResults! I would like to call out that I do not necessarily have wrinkles so the products were used for improving skin appearance and minimizing fine lines. I was gifted the full line, however I used the eye cream and night time moisturizer the most. Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream: This lightweight eye cream contains Retinol SA and is clinically proven to fade the look of crows feet, brighten and even under eye area, reduce the look of dark circles and smooth fine lines.  I could feel the product working the moment I put it on and after a few days I noticed that the skin under my eyes was brighter and looked tighter. Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer: This moisturizer has the highest concentration of Retinol SA and proven to fade the look of deep wrinkles, brighten skin tone and smooth fine lines. The moisturize causes skin …

B.A.D. Girl Beauty Review: Philip Kingsley Styling and UV Protection Products

It’s so important to protect yourself from UV rays and most of us probably forget about our hair, right?! I know I did until I was introduced to hair care brand Philip Kingsley. which has an awesome line of products to protect your hair from sun damage. These products are especially good for you ladies who color your hair because the sun will definitely strip or change the color of your locks. I am mildly obsessed so I had to post a review. Philip Kingsley Maximizer ($22): This hair spray maximizes volume, body and bounce. I spray it on my roots and get nice volume. It also adds a decent hold and shine and contains the UV protector. Philip Kingsley Preen Cream ($34): This styling cream protects, seals and adds shine. Its perfect for smoothing out dry ends which I love. Its lightweight and contains the UV protector too! Philip Kingsley Weatherproof Hairspray ($29): This hairspray is a must have for color treated hair since it helps protect against sun damage and extends the life …

B.A.D. Girl Beauty Review: Ouidad Curl Recovery

I really don’t know if Ouidad can do wrong when it comes to hair so I LOVE trying out their latest creations. They recently sent me their just launched  Curl Recovery products to try out so here is what I thought of them after just one use. Ultra Nurishing Cleansing Oil: Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil is a foaming, water-activated cleanser with an advanced oil base that gently removes dirt and build-up while restoring essential moisture.{Ouidad} Pros: Lathered up really quickly and was easy to massage into my scalp Smells absolutely amazing I immediately saw a difference after one use Sulfate & Paraben Free Cons: NONE!

My Winter Skincare Routine

I mentioned in a previous post how I was switching up my skin care routine so I can face the winter (literally) here in New York. I am happy I did because it has been super cold out and going from single digit temperatures outdoors to a room/car with blasting heat is no bueno for my already problem skin. So here is what I have been doing to keep my skin moisturized and flake free. 1. Dior Cleansing Milk: This is my daily face cleanser that I use twice a day. 2. Origins Modern Friction: I use this 1-2 per week to help exfoliate and refresh my skin. 3. F.A.B. Instant Oatmeal Mask: I use this 2-3 per week to help combat dryness. 4. Ultra Repair Cream: This cream is awesome and is my daily day/night moisturizer. 5.  Urban Decay De-Slick Spray: I put this on before my moisturizer to help combat shine. 6. F.A.B. Lip Therapy: This is a kick ass lip balm that kind of tastes like chamomile tea. All of the products …
