IMG_20160311_153557

It’s coming back, the sun, heat, and longer days! Be up to date on all the latest and greatest products with 100% honest reviews. We always have the What’s hot now in everything Beauty, Fitness, and Fashion. Today we cover must have beauty and health products for your Summer 2016!

First up, let’s talk NAILS! Mess No More– TOO EXCITED to let everyone know that the best new product in Nail beauty is a silicon peel! Put it on around your nails before your paint. An any polish that would normally get on skin, you can just peel right off. If you love to try and get creative with nails, but hate the clean up.This solves the extra on the skin around the nails, but also allows us to be a little more creative and try new things! An speaking of new things, thanks to Instagram nail art videos we had to find us a stamping set and give it a go. Essence nail art Stampy set is not the easiest to do ,but with practice it does become easier and fun. Just google search nail stamp art, and check out all the videos of How-to’s to learn all the tricks. Once we get better at it, you can expect a Bean Styled YouTube video. If you have time, and you like to create your own nails this allows us to bring out the nail artist in all of us. The possibilities for at home art is coming to a major new trend for retail and we could not be more estatic! It has been quit a few years since our nails have been a major focus in the beauty industry. Painting nails for us is a time to meditate and relax, like coloring!

Influenster Voxbox

Influenster Sprout Vox Box we received had some great products, and these one’s we particular favored! One is the Vichy LiftActiv Serum sample and LiftActiv Supreme. It is a great moisturizer and after a week you can start to tell the fine lines are seeming to diminish. This line is new to us, but they have skincare to beauty products. Focused on aging and how to prevent deep wrinkles and other signs of aging. A brand worth looking into especially if your at the age of fine lines and wrinkles. This is a great product to start at the first sign.  Eatsmarts Three bean tortilla chips is also another product new to my family. Always looking for non-gmo and natural product and here is one! Taste great, awesome with any salsa or dip. We tried the Garlic and hummus and they were delicious! Another household product we feel lucky to have been given free sample of is Ecos Laundry detergent. It has come to the conclusion that half our skin problems in this home is due to chemicals we are putting in our fabric. That stops today! Ecos is a great laundry detergent with natural products. It smells great, left our clothes clean and looking more bright than our normal detergent and this is the absolute truth! We were shocked at how the laundry seemed cleaner. The finale product I enjoyed most in the sprout voxbox was the Orgain Organic Protein Powder, plant based, organic vegan, gluten free, soy free, and Non-Gmo! For a plant based product we have tried a handful and found this to need an award. Non gritty and it dissolves better than even some whey protein powders. So if your looking for a gluten free protein powder, or one that mixes well give Orgain a try. It was great tasting and smooth!

Garnier SkinActive Free Thanks to Crowdtap

Crowdtap has sent out 3 of the Garnier Clearly Brighter line products. An absolutely loving them! First up, the Anti-Puff eye roller with vitamin C, caffeine, antioxidants, plus mint. The ingredients used help cool and tight blood vessels. Plus, the roller ball helps lightly massage the area to help products soak in and release any build up of fluid in the periorbital edema. Secondly, I received the over-night leave on peel. As someone who likes to have a glycolic peel facial this is an extremely gentle version. Again, someone who has sensitive skin may always want to test this type of product on a small area first. But, I suffer from sensitive skin, but with all the skin allergies I am having this season unlike any before this product alone has been a skin saver! In one use you will notice brighter skin, and reduced pore size! Two of us participated in a beauty night and woke up very impressed by Garnier’s leave on -peel. It has vitamin C, Algae extract, Castor oil, plus AHA, Alpha Hydroxyl Acid-which helps exfoliate the skin by removing old dead skin cells. Research has show that AHA is one of the best penetrating products for skin that also helps with wrinkles and fine line. Finally, we received the Anti-sun Damage Daily Moisturizer, helps reduce dark spots and sun damage with the power of vitamin C, vitamin E, and LHA-Lipo Hydroxyl Acid, which is a light exfoliate but also a antimicrobial so it helps remove that gunk in your pores as well as an anti-inflammatory so will help rid acne. If your one that thinks you can’t use a moisturizer because you have oily skin, this would be a great one to try. An the bonus is that this moisturizer doubles as sun protection with spf30! No applying extra products to skin.

 

us-vsl-0p25oz-rosylips_tcm2858-777556Vaseline lip Therapy Rosey Lips– Here is another favorite we have been using for some time now. Vaseline lip therapy in Rosey Lips gives the perfect amount of pink color to lips and enough shine that is not sticky and soaks right into lips leaving them smooth&  subtle.

Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

Maybelline Dream velvet soft matte hydrating foundation.  I never buy over the counter foundation. I am a little stuck up when it comes to department store foundations. They are filled with chemicals and tend to dry out my skin and make problems worse. So I have a few more expensive brands I purchase from specialty online stores.  However, for the $10 it cost this is a great foundation for normal to dry skin. A great coverage, yet does not feel heavy on the skin and is extremely smooth. A little bit really goes a long way.

Yes To Coconut & E.L.F. products

Yes to Coconut Hydrate and Restore Eczema relief Spray, can’t say enough about this spray moisturizer. Maybe most would just use it on the body, but we tested this on the face as well and will never be getting rid of it. A new must in the beauty arsenal, but this not only relieved the dryness, it cooled and calmed the irritated skin. It seemed to heal the skin in just 48 hours. If you are one that suffers eczema, dry skin of any kind, this product did more for healing and protecting better than any facial moisturizer I have ever used. I could replace my daily moisturizer with this Yes To Coconut’s product it’s that good! But, as a suffer of such dry skin, you can feel the relief immediately reliving itch and/or dryness. Some great ingredients are in this product more than coconut oil it also has honeysuckle, soybean oil, and Tamanu oil (also known as Beauty leaf oil) from the Tamanu Tree. It is made up of different fatty acids so it is not only a good exfoliator for sensitive skin it will help hydrate. Can’t say enough about this Yes to product except if you suffer from any amount of dry skin, please try this.

 

Eyes.Lips.Face E.L.F. Lip Exfoliator – This is one of the best lip exfoliates that has ever been tested at Bean Styled. It is cute that it looks like lipstick, but we would still use this even if it came in a bigger jar. Hint Hint E.L.F. However, using once a week it will last you a good 30 days! It has vitamin E, Shea Butter, Avocado, Grape, and Jojoba oil, and of course sugar. Plus for the $3 price it is more luxurious than most lip scrubs in department stores.

eyes lips face concealer and highlighter

 E.L.F. Under eye concealer and Highlighter– This is not a new product on our summer beauty list. It is just a favorite that is perfect all year, but with the added highlighter the possibilities of nude no make up look or pair it with your other eye shadow products to create great looks that will last. This concealer is a great primer for eye makeup, takes away dark circles, and has a dual highlighter to create highlighting effects, it is a must have in our beauty bag always and can find at Target stores.

Que Bella Facial Mask

 

 

Finally, the last product is Que Bella. From their line of facial mask, to other skincare products. The price on shelves on all their products range from $1.99 to $3.99 at my local target. So if you don’t have the time or money to hit up the spa, these products work wonders for us diy at home ladies! This wonderful replenishing mask did the trick and if your waking up with those puffy eyes.

Que Bella Gel Eye Mask

 

They have amazing little eye hydrating patches you can wear while getting ready, chasing the kids, or if you have 30 minutes to lay down and relax, we would recommend that one! Wish we had a before and after pic, but since we don’t take our word they are worth it, Bean Approved!

Cheeky Tints

Hard Candy Cheeky Tints in Ballerina. Scared of gel blush? Yeah, we were intimidated too until hard candy cheeky tints was discovered. A really sheer pink blush that when put on can barley be seen. It is a light gel, an feels great when applying.  More of a pink highlighter. Yet, has great build able coverage you can create a pinker cheek if needed. This is the perfect Doll Cheek, or as they say maybe a Ballerina who has been dancing for an hour flushed look, a perfect pink! An since we do not buy anything from Wally World (a.k.a. walmart) due to personal reasons, not being friendly to small businesses, and having a lawsuit settled out of court by immediate family member this is about one of the only times we will tell you to purchase at HardCandy.com online rather than locally. (You won’t hear us say this too often as we are a small business Fitness Studio!) However having been gifted this product, an realizing their website is not the greatest, you can’t search for products, and we have not been able to find this product on their website.

 

With so many great new products you will be able to keep that skin glowing beautifully this summer and staying healthy with some of the newest food and home products. Be sure to sign up for our email so you don’t miss out on great reviews like this one. Plus follow us on all Social media to keep you beautifully healthy and looking your beast!

Revlon

Revlon Colorstay 555Moonlit Eye shadow has made a favorite review list because the colors seem dark yet are actually transparent so they are build-able. Take it from Day to Night in a Flash, and you can create a great subtle nude look with this palette. High light your brow bone with the white on any look, Use the Nude all over with just mascara, these are some suggestion out of 100 we could come up with using the moonlit eye shadows.

Pantene

Pantene Pro-V Rehab Creme: The only Hair product that made our first product review article of the year. A great at home conditioning treatment to help those dry winter locks spring back to life. An Pantene promises this is more than conditioning. It has antioxidants that helps detox the scalp and get rid of build up to help promote natural shine and strength.

IMG_20141223_113623

Laneige

Finally, a great skincare line we found at target. It has become a favorite, especially for winter and those who suffer from dry skin. It is a water based very hydrating skincare Line called LANEIGE! To Start it has gentle Multi Cleanser with mini papaya exfoliator. It cleanses really well with out that tightness or extreme dry feeling of the skin and promises to help clean and rid sunscreen. The Water Bank Serum for all skin types is like putting water right into your skin. A 24 hour hydrating serum to keep skin feeling plump and hydrated all day with that special glow. Next, the Water Bank Moisture Cream has a wonderful smell, it seems thick but applies and soaks right into skin. Last, the Water Sleeping Mask will become part of your new night time regimen. For all Skin types an overnight revitalizing gel mask you will wake up with plump hydrated skin. With continued use the products work well together to help keep skin hydrated at all times so you don’t have to go back to feeling that dry, tight skin anymore. There are many products out there but with the recent turn of the weather this line the past 4 weeks has proven it’s worth. The full size products are on the shopping list.


Eyes, Lips, Face, LOVE

Bean Styled can never get enough of E.L.F. The products are Amazingly affordable and quality does not lack. First off the Under eye concealer and highlighter is to rave about! Very light feel and conceals under eye circles completely. The highlighter is also a lightweight feel and gives a light highlight that makes eyes pop. Use on the temples, arch under brow or the brow bone. Or use under the eye before you apply the concealer for a wide awake look. Great way to de-puff eyes and instantly remove dark circles just as well as the more expensive concealers out there.

 

If you don’t hold the most voluminous lashes or just love to wear false lashes try elf lash kits. For the Price you can always have a pair when you are wanting to feel Glamorous or just wanting more lashes for the day.

 

Now it’s really no secret that clear mascara is also used to tame eyebrows and E.L.F. knows this too! Their double ended Clear Lash and Brow Mascara is genius. The Brushes are two different sizes which is the important part, and labeled for eyes and brows.The eye makeup process just got easier!

 

If you love options  E.L.F.’s Elements is a great way to customize your own makeup palettes. Refills which are magnetic and pop right in and out, easy and FUN
