Beauty Find - Fenty Beauty By RIHANNA Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer


FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer 

Ever since the launch of FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer It's been my go-to first step before applying makeup.  I love the cushiony feel, how it smooths and blurs my skin while keeping my makeup fresh and in tact all day.


As someone with combination skin, even with primer, my t-zone always has some breakthrough by afternoon, and although FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Instant Retouch Primer has done a good job at minimizing this, I was VERY excited to hear about the new launch of FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer.

Created specifically for combination and oily skin, FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer still has a lightweight, cushiony texture, but now keeps all the oilies at bay - all day!

FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer is made with a unique blend of blue agave extract and blurring powders.

I applied FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer, concentrating on my nose, forehead and chin areas, where I am most oily.  Upon contact, it absorbed instantly and my skin was instantly matte (but didn't look dry or cakey).  It also smoothed my pores and allowed my makeup to apply easily.  It is very concetrated, so I only needed 2 pumps for full coverage.




By the mid-afternoon when I checked my makeup, not only did it still look fresh and the colors true, but my t zone was still matte, while not making me look or feel dry on my drier cheek areas.


So if you're been searching for the "holy grail" of oily skin makeup primers, look no further!  Pick up FENTY BEAUTY by Rihanna Pro Filt'r Mattifying Primer ASAP.  - RLB


Body Care Find - LULULEMON SELFCARE anti-stink deodorant mini


lululemon selfcare anti-stink deodorant mini Black Pepper Sandalwood 
lululemon has become one of the top athletic apparel brands for women.  Now they've used data on active women's needs to create a new line of selfcare products which are sweat-tested, cruelty-free and made with good-for-you ingredients to help get you look and feel your best quickly for workouts and busy days.


lululemon selfcare anti-stink deodorant mini Black Pepper Sandalwood  is one of the new products in the line that I love.  If you already use natural deodorants or want to try aluminum-free products, then you'll love this as well.  

lululemon selfcare anti-stink deodorant mini Black Pepper Sandalwood is made with Prebiotics which reduce the growth of bacteria and restrict odor forming bacteria, Zinc, a natural salt that acts as a highly effective odor absorber, and Coconut Oil, which conditions and softens the skin.


I love the lululemon selfcare anti-stink deodorant spray formulation which is concentrated with a targeted mist.  It dried down within seconds and left absolutely NO white cast or residue on my skin or clothing.  Like all aluminum-free products, this will not prevent sweating completely, but I found that I was only slightly wet after running around for errands or doing fitness walks during hot summer days and still smelled fresh.  

Since you can touch up without any build up, I also used it later in the afternoon just to freshen and smell the lovely Black Pepper Sandalwood scent which lingers softly and  is also unisex.


Some other great features are it's packaging, which has a rubberized base, so I was able to set it on any surface without the tube getting damp or soggy.

Hair Care Find - BRIOGEO Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack



Briogeo Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack

Briogeo hair products have never dissapointed me.  Now there's a new Briogeo duo that everyone with dry, color-treated, textured, relaxed or curly hair is going to want to treat their tresses this summer.  

Briogeo Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack is a shampoo and conditioner duo inspired by the nourishing ingredients found in juices and smoothies, using antioxidant-rich fruits for healthy-looking hair and scalp.  Both products contain Banana; which has potassium and antioxidants to nurture and protect hair, Coconut which is rich in fatty acids and vitamin E to hydrate, and Acai which contains powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals for healthy-looking hair.

Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack
The Briogeo Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner duo smells amazing and  authentic (with it leaning more toward banana than coconut to my nose) - without being too sweet or overwhelming.  

Both the Shampoo and Conditioner are concentrated and even with my thicker hair, I only needed about a quarter-sized amount to both cleanse and condition.

The Conditioner in particular is such a treat!  It's like a smoothie for your hair.  It's thick and rich, but not sticky or gummy.  It has a nice amount of slip so I was able to massage it into my ends and all over my hair easily.






When I rinsed out both products, my hair was so smooth and soft, with no residue and a lovely, light banana scent.  I also noticed that while Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner smoothed my hair and kept it from frizzing, it also gave my relaxed hair a nice volume and allowed me to detangle easily.

If you've been looking for a hydrating and repairing shampoo and conditioner that also uses natural products, look no further than Briogeo Banana + Coconut Superfoods Shampoo & Conditioner Hair Pack. - RLB
