I have tried every self tanner on the shelves. An since the early 90’s I have been every spotted color from darkest brown to yellow! No more worries of self tanner streaks thanks to St. Tropez Self Tan.
Trust me when I tell you I was beyond skeptical. I have seen this product for years. I was never brave enough to try this “New” formula no matter how many fellow bloggers raved. I received this mit and sample from my #Allurebeautybox An I can’t thank the @Allure beauty expert’s enough! The purity water self tan is like tinted moisturizer or bb cream. Lightest application of color yet enough to make a difference. Very light formula on skin, soaks in fast, and can dress in 15 minutes. Smells good too. An ingredients are safe for skin. I have used every last drop an it didn’t phase my sensitive skin at all. Matter of fact it looks healthier than ever. An glowing without the harsh summer sun. I am so in love with this product. I will now be forever part of the #StTropezTribe.
It is fool proof. The mit smooths and applies product effortlessly. No more lined hands or feet. I will be using this for events like my upcoming auditions and Pageants. Worth every cent. Find it @Ultabeauty

My teenage self is screaming why these Nunzio Saviano Anti-Frizz Hair Wipes could not have been around in the 90’s? I mean 80’s would have had no use for them. An here in 2019 we finally have a almost magical product wiping out hair frizz. Providing Sleek Shine to straight or curly hair! Thanks to my #AllureBeautyBox subscription for the perfect match an introduction.
I grew up in the Central Illinois midwest. Where the humidity get’s so high you feel sticky. I’ve lived on the east coast and deep south New Orleans where you can’t breath and your hair sticks up in curls. My naturally wavy hair turns major kinky curls in That kind of weather. Usually buns all summer! An no matter what products we all use; heating tools are needed to combat the frizz war on our head’s.
However after discovering the NS Anti-Frizz wipes. I could cut out all products. Go straight to blow dry and curl or straighten. Even let my natural hair dry and have my own natural hair without the frizz! These Anti-Frizz wipes give Sleek, Shine, No Frizz Perfection! I am loving these hair wipes. Fit in purse and perfect for travel. You can now go anywhere and have an Amazing hair day! I really am so excited about this product. I personally will be getting more.
Well, today after blowing drying and straightening you can still see the thickness/frizz. Usually heat tool’s along with oils I use make sleek hair. Today no products just tools. Then the Anti-Frizz sheet. You can literally see the Shine appear and frizz be gone. Watch the video below and subscribe to Bean Styled Youtube
If you have dry hair these could really help get some hydration back to roots. Can search and find them on Amazon. I am hoping they will be in Ulta or Sephora asap. Worth Trying!
Michael Todd Beauty Sonic Smooth is our Dermaplaning Home Device pick!
I personally have not had a professional dermaplaning but, trust I do want to. Most services cost around $150.00 so to Purchase one for under $100 sounded like the best alternative for this budget friendly mom. I do plan on having one done but, now I can do one almost just as well in privacy of my own home.
I had been looking at the @MichaelToddBeauty and the Dermaflash brand. I settled on the Michael Todd not only because, it was more affordable the reviews were really good. Also, after researching I seen Dermaflash tried to sue MTB over the Sonic Smooth. Clearly MTB created their own design which I liked. It seems smaller an silicon comfort. Neither company created sonic vibration so I went with what others experience and the price tag. I do believe MTB has a better product why Dermaflash had to create their 2.0 quicker and still not as affordable. So the price of Dermaflash turned me away.
So my review… I really am in love with my dermaplaning experience. The kit comes with everything you need. Charcoal detox cleanser that mind you ‘Little goes a long way’ learned from mistake of not reading. Which is going to become one of my coveted charcoal cleaser for it did not dry out or irritate my sensitive skin. An both cleanser and after gel have my #1 plant favorite skincare ingredient… Aloe! I am definitely going to have to try more of MTB skincare line.
I kept my Sonic smooth on low since this was my first go. An could not be happier with how my skin feels. Soft and smooth. Yet clean like never before. I used some of my favorite skincare product’s after and the glow was unreal. An knowing the the ingredients were soaking in like they couldn’t before made my skin feel extremely hydrated. I am looking forward to how my skin changes in the weeks to come. You don’t apply makeup after so best to do a treatment at night. Or a Spa day at home like myself it’s sunday skincare to dedicate to just good for skin ingredients.
I plan on doing a dermaplaning treatment once a month. So that means with this system I have 7 months worth. I uploaded the video and took up speed 4X’s. So you can tell now how careful I was. You do need caution as you have a blade against your skin. However, it was not that scary. With pratice and light movements the sonic vibrations actually help you not be so irritiated and red afterwards.
If your on the fence and was wanting to get your own device for dermaplaning a great tool to have in between your professional services too. I highly recommend the Michael Todd Beauty Sonic Smooth Dermaplaning system. I have not felt my skin so smooth, or clean. The removal of tiny hairs is great. Getting rid of that dead skin… That’s Amazing!
How important is skincare to you? Did you ever have any teenage skin problem’s? Do you suffer from adult skin concerns. Or a more serious skin disease. Here is why I should have spent 12 years to become a dermatologist or went to cosmetology school for aesthetics.
I started Beanstyled.com a blog on Google’s blogger.com in 2008 when I graduated College with a Bachelor of Art’s degree in Criminology/Sociology. I was going though a time of depression an learning about my own anxiety dealing with a twenty-something life crisis. Typical college grad with student loans who was promised great jobs and good salaries in a time none were to be found. Okay, not much as changed in our economy. Looking back esthetician licenses would have been a great career that pays well if your good at being independent. Which I am great at making sales and booking clients. Then if I had really been passionate contine to college to become the Dr. Now I haven’t loss my passion for skin. It’s only grown. So maybe one day I’ll go back to school but, two kids at home and business to grow. I am actually doing okay on this influencer level and being a guru. I’ve seen info spread by even licensed esthetician that dermatologist would not agree on. So in my opinion if you have major skin concerns ask the Dr. Of skincare. Not a professional esthetician who really is about pampering and detoxing services. Anything with needles or sharp objects. I would always do myself in a med spa under Dermatology supervision. With all the background about my knowledge in the education and safety of skincare. Let me begin my story how I come to find how taking care of my skin also has taken care of my mind as well.
I had a diary since kindergarten I recieved as a gift. In middle school I recieved anothe. From my grandmother. When I graduated with my Associates degree I recieved another. All from different relatives. I started blogging and realized writing had always been a stress reliever for myself. A way to get out my emotions at a time when I had no one who would understand or listen. This also helped me get through post-partum depression. So that is why B.E.A.N. Styled Studio began. A way to share my love of beauty while releasing stress. It has continued to grow into a Lifestyle method. Including Workout Plans based off years of group fitness classes.
What leads this to skincare is that beauty is also something I had always done as a young child to relax. Between the Barbie an champange bubble bath, oil beads, making my own skincare, doing makeup and nails. Fisher Price Vanity to my caboodles. I didn’t have a mom who was into make-up, shopping, or anything much girly. But, I still got the Miss. Pretty makeup and plastic high heels. Can’t say my childhood was all bad. I look back an realize the time I spent thinking and doing skincare helped get me through that childhood.
I learned alot from my best childhood friend Megan’s mom Lana. Call her Mom #2 but, she’s really the #1 MOM! She was the one there for me at my wedding when the biological mom turned down the opportunity to be there. At many tumbling meets to do my hair and make my leotards. An can’t even count the hours, days, weekend’s spent at her house. Anything a young girl learned growing up like shaving your legs was learned at her house. Not enough words to express my gratitude.
This is where a spa jacuzzi mat mixed with Dish soap turned a small bathroom into a complete bubble kingdom. Seriously, picture was after half bubbles were wiped. Ceiling to floor an wall to wall. It was great; until we had to clean it! 😂 Megs and I would go to the library to get skincare diy books. Wow, to all the kitchen food and beauty products of mom’s that we used. We would hit the mall and I would always get some skincare, makeup, or nail polish. When Sears and Claire’s were actually a hit. Definitely made my fair share of beauty fails. One thing never straighten your hair with product’s not made for your hair type. That was a CVS trip to remember and a summer of bad hair days! Does anyone else remember the Walgreens Summer beauty bundles and the Back to School one’s? They were like the first beauty box for me!
The older I got I relied on Magazines for a lot of information. How to and products. A teenager like me who didn’t have a female that I could talk to about woman issues. I thank Seventeen and Cosmo for teaching me a lot I know. An those teen friendships where all embarrassment goes out the window and you can talk about anything together. Another group of ladies I owe a thank you for being there as a friend during tough year’s. Unlucky for me acne ran in the dna. My mom did suffer greatly. As did my brother. I felt bad and did everything to keep mine in check. Things were said and I delt with my fair share of hiding. If you’re suffering… Know there is something today more than ever to help. Including prescriptions and treatments from dermatologist.
Once I finally read exfoliate (1 a week for sensitive dry skin) Read Ingredients for Cleanser and other products. Everyone has to moisturize… My skin changed! This wasn’t til I was about 18 but, when I seen my skin change I felt like I finally figured it out. It wasn’t about secret products my friends were not telling me about. It was about steps. An if everyone took the same steps then it was about the ingredients for each skin type. Maybe, this explantion will help some. An lucky today more and more companies are taking out bad chemicals and finding natural alternatives.
No, you don’t have to spend a fortune on products to get great skincare. Some expensive products are great. Many korean beauty a.k.a Kbeauty have same quality and potency in more affordable products. I still like products that are science/nature combined. I enjoy most natural, organic, cruelty free products.
College was the key in my house. However, if I could go back I would have gotten my esthetician licenses. My knowledge comes from doing and reading. I have read the esthetician text books. I stay on top of new products and tools I don’t even see esthetician talking about yet. I maybe the Guru but, you can do your own research as well. Because, everything at @Beanstyled is made for you to do at home. I naturally enjoyed doing hair and makeup. I have a talent I can share. Best at sharing skincare products, (Not Skin Health advice. That I recommend Dermatologist always!) Good at Sharing Makeup products and tips that work for me. Hair, I like to style and diy color at home. However, no cutting tutorial’s here.
Majority of the B. for Beauty on Bean Styled will be the health of your skin. Keeping it naturally beautiful. Lots of skincare product’s to encourage you to focus on relaxing. Sometimes even I mask and run around the house cleaning and taking care of kids. But, I don’t recommend it.
As the E in BEAN equals exercise. We’ll go more into why you need a sweaty workout in more post. But, nothing beats a good sweat session to detox the bodies pores. As long as a good cleanse comes afterwards.
We also must focus on the A. Our Attitude and that means meditation and relaxation. Ever since I was young, it so happens that taking care of my skin has helped me mentally. Using the time to focus, release energies, and meditate. Why I always encourage spa day at home. I have two girls an I am learning to involve them sometimes. I still need my own time for mom time. But, to teach them to be silent, relax, and skin health is important. Teaching them a new way to calm their mind; may find a way to teach them to release from life the unnecessary. Regain a sense of self and focus. I know many look at skincare and makeup as just vain. I don’t believe that at all. There is a therapeutic aspect to skincare and doing your makeup. It is what has made Spas billions. Spaces of solitude and complete relaxation. More homes should have bathrooms that have spa comfort. If all us spa lover’s got our way in home design. Nothing beats a treatment you have done by another’s comforting hands. Yet, to me it is more about the time we get to ourselves, treating ourselves, in the privacy of our own space. Again, where traveling and mobile spa professional’s are making a new income by coming to you. I do like where the industry is going.
Skincare has always been something I enjoy and think is fun. It is more than just the beauty industry. It comes down to the N. Nutrition. You can’t expect to have a healthy body or skin with all the processed foods in America. Drinking water is not the magic potion but, it sure help’s to keep the body and skin hydrated. This is why it is important to eat organic grown foods. No chemical’s to process to mess up the body. No chemical’s to mess with our hormones and reak havic on our skin. The day I gave up Soda and fast food companies is also another time in life I realized my skin had less break outs. An it glows naturally more than ever.
So from a little girl who loved all things pretty whom wished she had known more about the careers that fit my passion… I wouldn’t change a thing. An although I don’t have a famous name or family to back a loan hundreds of thousands of dollars to create my skincare ideas. I will only continue as people need to hear that they are the most important. That really it’s not all about the products. It’s how we treat ourselves. I can only hope more people will come hear and join in on B.E.A.N. LifeStyle.

I partnered with BrandBacker to try out Lypsyl amazing Original Mint Intense Protection lip balm. Great protection against all the elements.
It is Sweden’s #1 best-selling lip balm. I can see why with it’s formula that glides on so smooth and instantly cools lips. No sticky or tacky feel because, it soaks in. You can actually feel the hydration to your lips. In just a couple days it has transformed my dry lips to soft and smooth.
Made with Silky Swedish Beeswax it is creamy yet lightweight on lips. An it smells absolutely yummy! Also contains coconut oil, Organic Shea butter and Vitamin’s A & E. Plus, how can you forget the name Lypsyl when that packaging is too darn cute with that bee slider! It makes a good reminder to help save our Bee population here in the United States.
