For Audrey’s Love Heels All <3

Bonjour mes amours <3
2 reviews today! Can you guess what the two are?

First up is Ecotool’s L♥ve Heels All, omygosh, HOW CUTE is the name?? They totally suckered me in because I was looking for a foot cream for the summer. Summertime is flipflop/ cute sandal season (I’ve been favoring my Seychelle’s Get Outta Town knockoffs I got from Target all summer!), and nothing ruins a pair of cute shoes like some dry, whte, cracked heels! O_O!! Some people may think that others don’t notice, but there is always that ONE person that pays attention to detail (aka ME) that notices. Plus I went to school in Santa Cruz where there were a LOT of dry ugly feet.

L♥ve Heels All really did “heel” my feet! At first when I put them on my feet I was a little skeptical because the consistency of this “intensive heel cream” is the same as any lotion. I dunno about you guys, but I was expecting it to be hardcore, heavy-duty, thick-ass cream to fix my ugly feet. The smell is kinda minty, and it kinda leaves your feet feeling cool.. like Burts Bee’s for your feet?


What I like about it:
♥ 98% from nature
♥ ecotools donates 1% of sales to environmental organizations
♥ Paraben and Phtalate Free
♥ Not tested on Animals!
♥ It works (thats kinda nice isnt it?)
Overall grade: A+ !

The second product is the well known China Glaze For Audrey. I really don’t think I need to say much for it just because… it speaks for itself! It sells itself. Every time I wear it, whether I’m at work, or just out, people always always ALWAYS compliment For Audrey. Just today at work (I work retail) 4 customers liked my nail polish and asked me what it was. I also like China Glaze because it’s good quality nail polish for a decent price, ~$6 or less depending on where you get it. This is a STEAL compared to Chanel’s "Nouvelle Vague”, which is very similar to For Audrey except it has some shimmer, and a hefty $23 price!

For Audrey is a creamy, must have coveted Tiffany blue hue that is all the rage for this season. I usually put on 2 coats so it’s even and I don’t see any nail ridges (when i’m too lazy to buff them out). How similar is For Audrey compared to Tiffany & Co.? See for yourself :)


Not too shabby right? I think it’s a perfect match! For Audrey is perfect on it’s own, but sometimes when I feel like making it even MOAR similar to Tiffanys I like to add a white/pearl french tip or a white KONAD plate bow :) You know.. just for authenticity :)

Overall grade: A++!

Anyway I hope you guys found these reviews helpful, if not.. then entertaining at least? Sorry for the crappy webcam photos, this was an impromptu post because I was applying my foot cream on and thought to myself ‘hey maybe I should post about it’. Till next time!

Chapstick not working?

Hey guys! I’m finally back after a…. __ month hiatus. Let’s call it a sabbatical.. it sounds more professional..

Anyway! NEW LAYOUT! HOLLA! This one is much more simplified (gasp, me simple, say it aint so!) Although I loved all those clicky link things on top, I just never put them to work.. so something nice and clean to re-inspire me to blog again (plus I have no school = no excuses!)

Ever wonder why you keep putting on your lip balm/chapstick, and it doesn’t make you feel any better? Do you find yourself reapplying time and time again to get no relief from chapped lips?

The problem might be your lip balm! Some lip products, such as Carmex contain an ingredient called Phenol or Phenyl Alcohol. No chemistry degree needed, we all know how drying alcohol can be, it evaporates! This severely dries your lips out, causing you to reapply after a short amount of time.

Ingredients on my mini tub of Carmex

Active Ingredients: Menthol 0.7%, Camphor 1.7%, Phenol 0.4%
Inactive Ingredients: Fragrance in Petrolatum, Lanolin, Cocoa Butter, Salicylic Acid and Wax Base

There it is for you, that Phreakin’ Phenol! I do agree, although I love Carmex for my coldsores (gotta love that Camphor), it does dry me out a bit.. I do feel as the Carmex in the squeezy tubes are less drying though..

Looking for a new chapstick to soothe your pucker? Luckily Burt’s Bees soothing chapsticks do not contain Phenol and will save the day. The growing-ever-so-popular EOS smooth sphere (made popular by Miss Michelle Phan, I wont lie, I got sucked into it too) also don’t contain Phenol and come in a variety of delicious scents! My favorite is “Summer Fruit” I’m trying to collect them like Pokeballs but they’re to hard to find!

Anyway I hope this was a good “return of the beauty blogger post”! Hopefully there will be more to come! Hopefully everyone is having a wonderful summer, and keep those lips smooth!
