Watch “Rosy VoxBox Review!” on YouTube

I was so excited to get picked for the Influester VoxBox to try an review. Opinions are all my own. 

The new Vera Wang perfumes are simply fresh and lovely! I enjoyed both Rose an Gardenia. However the Gardenia was my favorite. Great spring fragrances. 

The new Purell Naturals with essential oils will help not only rid germs but keep hands from drying out. Comes in a pump bottle so no waste or using too much. Great for the gym bag, diaper bag, or traveling.

Secret Clinical New stress deodorant works great, smells great, an hypoallergenic so should be safe for most underarm skin. 

Foot Petals ball of feet pads are a must for women who enjoy their heels and flats. Helps make shoes more comfortable an keeps feet from sliding!

An last but, my most favorite.. Not your Mothers Beach Babe Soft waves Sea salt spray! To make soft waves or in my case to help control frizz. This product works so much better than any products I have used before. A constant in my beauty arsenal. I have also used their dry shampoo which is also a favorite! 

Check out all these great products today!

Fall 2016 Beauty Reviews!

Hello All and Welcome to Fall 2016 at Bean Styled. We have a New beauty product reviews. We are starting to get into our Video’s and posting more so make sure to check out our Youtube as well and look for more How-to’s and reviews in all things Beauty and Fitness.

First up Beauty & Skincare Products we tried, loved, and here for your review research!

Looking for a great moisturizer you must try New Neutrogena HydraBoost water Gel with Hyaluronic acid. We have tried many gel based moisturizers and this one has reached the future. Less chemicals and natural found ingredients really do make a difference. Our new Must Have on the beauty vanity.

Purified Hyaluronic Acid

  • Absorbs up to 1000x its weight in water
  • Special formula releases hydration back into skin all day
  • Naturally found in skin

Olive Extract

  • Strengthening, moisturizing and nutrient-rich
  • Helps skin’s moisture barrier against moisture loss”

The Neutrogena HydraBoost is 2016 winner in the moisturizer department of skincare and has changed our skin for the better. Skin feels much more hydrated and plump.

Epielle Activated Charcoal a moisturizing, purifying and clarifying Mask. Are you looking for a mask that will not only help moisturize your skin, but also help purify? We recommend using this mask at night because this mask has a way of extracting dirt and oils from your pores. An does a wonderful job at it!

 

New Marc Beauty Air Blush 504 Kink and Kisses is a new layered Blush that is multi tone Pink with highlighter that blends to a light or darker blush depending on application. Light, airy, and does not dry out the skin.ย  Thanks Influenster for our Free full size sample.

 

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:

  • Discolorations appeared visibly improved
  • Helped restore elasticity and firmness to sagging skin
  • Hydrated thirsted, dry skin
  • Improved overall radiance of skin
  • Smoothed out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles”

Ponds Rejuveness Anti-wrinkle Cream- Pond’s is our choice for day cream. It is a thick cream but, soaks into skin quickly leaving it feeling extra smooth. American’s #1 anti-aging wrinkle cream. Say’s it can produce results in 2 weeks, now that is worth a trial!

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

Shea Moisture Heal and Rejuvenate trio was next to be tried thanks to the Influenster program. First up was the facial scrub, followed by the moisturizer, and on an in-between day we tried the anti-aging replenishing mask. A hydrating facial skincare system that is natural, paraben free, and will not clog pores. The scrub left my face feeling clean and not dried out. An the beads were not rough on the skin.

Cutex Felt Polish Remover pads

Finally, we will take the beauty regimen to the nails. Cutex has come up with the next best thing in polish remover. Cutex Advanced Revival Nail polish remover pads made from felt. Tiny, but mighty! TSA compliant so they are travel friendly. The best part of these remover pads is they take polish off with natural oils. So not only do they take off all 10 nails with one Pad,( yes we tried black and glitter!) they actually leave nails feeling healthy and strong. Instead of dry and brittle which most nail polish removers leave our nails with. If you don’t believe me…. Buy them!

Kon Mari

Before we hit the latest trends in the fashion scene. Let’s talk about one of my favorite things to do….Organize! Check out our “Get Organized Pinterest Board” for great life organizational ideas. However we must talk about the KonMari Method of organizing clothing in drawers by folding into 3rds. Here is an Example so you can visualize it. This has made so much more room in our Tank Top and leggings drawers we freed up space for an excuse to purchase more #FitFashion Gym rat or not anyone can appreciate this way of saving room and organizing. Just like the concept of rolling when packing your luggage. This using the same space saving concept and does not seem to wrinkle the clothes. An if you have any definite creases a hand steamer is perfect for a shot of hot steam to have it fall right out. This is the best organization tip since the luggage roll, and better than using drawer spacers!
