Plant Protein Powder

Huge thanks to PinchMe for sending out new Burts Bees Plant based Protein powder! The taste was so much better than the plant based powder I am currently using. It mixes easy in my Blender bottle and leaves no chunky powder balls an does not leave that chalky aftertaste that some seem to leave on my taste-buds.Plus, they have added vitamins and minerals to their product not just protein.Extra Bonus for many people who do not get in enough daily vitamins and minerals.

Positivley Radiant

Crowdtap sent out Aveeno new in shower 60 second facial and 48 hour moisturizer. This has been a great scrub to use 2-3 times a week on my face, neck, and chest. An the overnight hydrating facial moisturizer is just as good. It helps restore the moisture lost during the day with Aveenos Active Naturals Total Soy complex. An any products that use natural ingredients are better in my book. With such sensitive skin I hate switching up my favorite moisturizers. This did not make me break out and after a couple weeks I seen my skin looks a little more radiant in the mornings when I use this the night before.

Few items I picked up myself this month all come from E.L.F. brand E.L.F. (Click for website) However Target usually has a lot of their products on shelves.

E.L.F.

First is the Nude Matte creamy eye shadow in “Nude Linen” not only does it create a nude matte base that can be wore alone or add in contouring colors for a more dramatic natural face look. It stays put and drys quickly. Which has been a problem from some other cream eye shadows I have tried. An since it drys an sets quickly you can blend colors easily without it making a cakey mess.

The Bare natural makeup look is in for spring/summer 2017! Check out Bean Styled Pinterest for some bare natural makeup looks. Great for many because it takes minimal time and colors that you really can’t mess up. Just don’t go all same nude color on face and lips for your skin-tone and you’ll be alright. Pink/Brown lip colors are huge and that’s for one reason. It’s such a universal color for any skin tone.Try it!  An too keep lips smooth I have picked up another one of their lipstick scrubs this time in Mint. I loved the original clear an had a hard time deciding between Rose and Mint so next time I need more lip scrub I’ll be trying the rose. It is definitely my favorite lip scrub. No jars to dig in, lots of product so last longer than other brands.

E.L.F. Face Powder

Finally, I tried E.L.F. face powder to set that flawless skin look. E.L.F. powder in soft luminance does not cake, nor dry out skin. An is so light and airy it does not weigh down on skin.

Next, my skin is so sensitive and can dry out easily. I have been wanting to try all these facial oils for awhile. An now brands are coming out with so many it is time to start testing them. So I picked up “Yes To” miracle oil Brighten and Condition Argan Oil. It’s for face and body. An since Argan oil is good for hair too it can literally be used from head to toe! I have used it for my facial moisturizer, on my lips after my scrub and before putting on my lipstick or balms to help smooth lips. An can be applied over your foundation to have radiant glowing skin! Just remember it is an oil an a little goes a long way. They also have a Rose oil I am wanting to try as well. If you already have, let me know what you think.

Roc Multi-Correxion 5 in 1 Night Cream- Start repairing your skin while you sleep. Thanks for our free full size from Crowtap this has become a favorite part of our night time routine. “with breakthrough HEXINOLยฎ Technology. In a clinical study, women saw noticeable improvements in the 5 main signs of aging in as little as 4 weeks:

Key Ingredients are important, and with beauty companies using more naturally producing ingredients that are in skin like AHA makes this is a winner for all skintypes!
“AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) – Known as an exfoliant, which gently removes dull surface skin cells and smooths fine lines.
Collagen – Natural fiber known to increase skin strength and elasticity.
Vitamin E – An anti-oxidant that is known to fight free radicals and help with overall skin health.”
We absolutely love Pond’s Rejuveness!
unknown1-253x800The only Hair care items this month reviewed by Bean Styled go to “Not Your Mothers Brand”.ย  We have tried the “Clean Freak- dry shampoo” and the “Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Sea Salts, Aloe and Kelp” AhhhhhMazing! We are loving this brand so much look for a huge haul of their products that we have not tried yet. What made us a believer the dry shampoo is amazing and works great leaving hair soft and subtle.With no white residue you may see some other dry shampoos leave. This Clean Freak will get you a day two out of your hairstyle with no problem creating volume! Also, use it on day 1 hairstyles to help create that volume, it worked great! The Beach Babe sea salt spray is the best thing my hair personally has seen for frizz and fly-away’s. I loved the oils and always used a few favorites. However, I can spray NYM Beach Babe in wet hair let air-dry and get the best softest waves ever. Or I can blow dry and get smooth, straight, no frizz, or fly away’s. Hair is left with softness other products never give. I promise it’s like magic! One simple product, one simple step, and however you style with this product will be a game changer for hair and given us more better hair days!

Check outย  Not Your Mothers website!

Let’s Talk Body Lotion! The day’s of how you see your application of lotion will change. Trust us we were very reluctant in trying a lotion you rub on right after you shower…still wet. However, the results have made me throw out all, but one old-school lotion.

refreshing-coconut-oil-detailJergens Wet Skin with coconut oil- The scent is very light and not over powering with coconut. It really does soak in immediately an it seems we used less of this product than we would have lotion so it will save you money! Plus it is a lot quicker to apply, pat dry, get dressed with no waiting and out the door. Jergensย  wet oil infused in shower lotion penetrates skin when it can really soak in all the moisture. Absolutely loved that it left the skin feeling softer than lotions used in the past and lasted all day.

Thanks to CrowdTap for both our free lotion samples!

img_hydra-therapy-detailCurel Hydratherapy Advanced Ceramide Complex is another great option. It left the skin feeling just as soft and lasted all day. Unlike regular lotion, both products work better! Curel in shower lotion is thicker and smells more like your tradition Curel lotion smell. So if you prefer more neutral smell and not an infused oil this one you would probably prefer. Again, a lot quicker than applying traditional lotion and waiting for it to dry. Curel has a special “Advanced Ceramide Complex, penetrates deeply into the skin’s surface bringing moisture to the source of dryness. It absorbs immediately and with continued use will end your dry skin!”

“Why Ceramides?
Ceramides, naturally present in healthy skin, are vital building blocks to maintaining skinโ€™s moisture barrier. When ceramides are lost, skin becomes dry and damaged. Curรฉlยฎ HYDRA THERAPY WET SKIN MOISTURIZER, with Advanced Ceramide Complex, penetrates to the source of dryness, helping to replenish skin’s ceramide levels and repair the moisture barrier.

  • Water activated moisture works deep into skinโ€™s surface
  • Helps repair moisture barrier
  • Contains our proprietary Advanced Ceramide Complex
  • Immediately Absorbs
  • Completely Greaseless
  • Skin feels 3x more hydrated instantly
  • Fragrance Free
  • Dermatologist Recommended
  • Received the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptanceโ„ข”

Now there is one Brand of what you may consider old way of putting on lotion is the Aveeno Daily moisturizing lotion with Sheer hydration. Hydrates 24 hours. The lotion turns into a soft powdery feel which we love. It makes our skin feel like silk. An if you apply it after you pat dry out of the shower or bath it will soak in even better and did last all day! The natural oat complex will always remain as one of the best skincare ingredients.

So if you were looking for a new product for skincare, beauty or hair you must give these products a go!ย

Beauty Secret: Rice an Tea

Rice Beauty

Bean Styled has started researching into other cultures and their everyday routine from eating to skin care. Here are two key ingredients that everyone should start ingesting more of along with applying it to our skin. The Wonderful first Ingredient is RICE. Look at it’s benefits. Take a look at the Asian Culture, and most of them will have very beautifully smooth and vibrant skin.  Their major diet is made up of fish and rice. Their intake in Rice could have a major impact on their skin, that we here in America should start taking up ourselves. Not only do they eat more rice, and by culture drink more Tea. The second food and drink we will be discussing today.  Green Tea being one of the most popular teas they choose to drink. Is this a habit or diet that could benefit the rest of the world, for skin care, but also for our Health.

There are Many beauty products out there today that have rice in them, but there is also home-made recipes that are great when your on a budget, and they provide the nutrients directly to the skin.

There are many natural, and organic products on beauty shelves out there with rice in them. As Bean Styled is on the hunt, trying and reviewing! Once we find some great products we will have the review of the products up. In the meantime leave us comments on anything you recommend or have heard of, and we will gladly give it a try.

The Rice Facial:  Take a Cup or Two of Rice, place in a pot of water and boil. Pretty much follow the directions that come with your Rice. Sorry thou, Instant Rice won’t work for these Recipes. After you finish boiling the rice, Carefully Strain the Water in a Bowl.  Set at your Table, Vanity ect. with a towel over your head to catch the steam coming up from the bowl of rice water and let it open your pores. After 5-10 minutes, Use the cooled down rice water to Rinse your face. Slightly pat dry so your face is not dripping with water, and let your face air dry. You Should just then rinse with cool water, and pat dry. You will instantly feel your skin is smoother and see a nice glow.

Also, if you are not able to eat all your left over Rice, or go ahead and make more to Use it in a Rice Bath Soak:  Again, use the directions on your rice to boil it, Use strainer to Strain your rice, and water add the rice water to your already filled bathtub. Then with the Rice, mash it up with a Fork; then add to Tub. Like Cleopatra with her milk baths, We now have Rice Baths.

It seems people with dry skin, and eczema should try Rice in their diet, and soaking their skin. From what I can find Rice helps retain the moisture we easily loose in our skin with the help of the starch proteins. Which over time the skin should become smoother, and  with a routine you could really reduce and prevent some wrinkles. We only have to look at Asian Culture for the real results!

Aveeno Products use science and nature, with  “Active Naturals” meaning natural ingredients that deliver results, and they have a great Body Scrub with Rice!  Aveeno Positively Nourishing Smoothing Body wash with pomegranate, rice, and walnut shells, is a great smelling, gentle exfoliate anyone can use.  Try it Out Today, can be found at any local drug store, Target ect.

Green Tea Steam Facial:

Boil Green Tea (4-8 tea bags)

Remove from stove and Carefully poor into a bowl to let cool til it is Warm and able to touch, and put on your face.

**Please remember when doing at home Recipes to be very careful, at Bean Styled we love to offer great alternatives to expensive Spa Treatments but please always use common sense when around Stoves, fire, heat ect.

Soak a Clean Hand Towel in the Green Tea, twist it up, and set it aside for now.

Let the water cool to warm and Cleanse your face with gentle cleanser using the teas water, Use your Astringent/toner

Then take your hand towel, open it up (should still be warm)

Lay back and Place your Warm Green Tea Towel over your face and let the Warm Steam open up your pores, allow the ingredients to absorb deeper and let the Green Tea’s Antioxidants do it’s work.

After 10-15 Minutes Remove Towel and use your moisturizer as usual.

++Also Throw another Hand Towel in the Green Tea that is already Steeped before you wash and place it in a bowl in the Refrigerator over night for the facial below. So you don’t have to waste anymore tea or time to brew more.

Green Tea Chill Facial:

After a long day come home, Remove make-up,

Ring out your Hand Towel that is Chilled with Green Tea

Lay Back and Relax with the cool Towel applied over your face for 10-15 minutes.

Then apply your moisturizer

The antioxidants will help remove the Impurities from the Day, and De-puff those tired eyes, and de-stress at the Same time.

You’ll be ready for a Dinner Date in 15 Minutes, Looking Fresh like you’ve slept all day, instead of 8-12 hours at your Desk!

Green Tea is a Great antioxidant, and Moisturizer. Not only Great to Drink but in many Beauty products today. Green Tea can help prevent dry skin, acne, wrinkles, and fine lines.  If you have a favorite Green Tea product, or Recipe we would Love to Hear from you
