summer skin items

in the past months I have been trying out some products for my skin. summer is here already and I wanted to make sure that my skin was hydrated and feeling nice. it isn't that hot here in LA yet but it's getting there.

Veet fast acting gel cream hair remover
This is the leg and body sensitive formula with aloe vera. like any other girl I got yired of shaving and wanted to try something that would leave long lasting results. I have never tried waxing and am afraid of the pain plus I imagine that leg waxing would be expensive at a salon and too dangerous for me to want to try at home. so I went to target and purchased this for around $6 which I found was cheaper than a drug store or any other store. the bottle is big (13.5 fl oz) and I bought it back in april, it is now july and i still have less than half left. I've used it quite a few times now.

the product itself it a thick smooth white foam, it also comes with a nifty little paddle? lol which has two sides, one wide and the other a bit less wide to remove large or small amounts of hair at a time. its plastic so it doesn't hurt and does the job very well I even used it in my under arm area ;D!

the first time I used the product I was amazed, I left it on for about 8 min (max being 10 or else its on you!) this product does not burn or hurt at all. the first time results i got were long lasting and i didn't see any hair growth for a couple weeks. the last few times i've used it however i've noticed that the hair is growing back as fast as if i were using a razor.

will I be purchasing this again? I don't know, we'll see how it performs by the time its finished i'll determine from there.

Tree Hut Shea Body Buttercoconut lime with natural coconut and lime extracts
compared to a bunch of other lotions i've tried (aveeno, curel etc) this has to be my most fav of the moment. the texture is so creamy and delicious on your skin and the moisture lasts all day or until you shower! no lie lol. not to mention the SMELL! it smells so good I wish I could eat it LOL. it's such a perfect product for summer, coconut lime. it says it all. even my brother loves this lotion im already done with it and need to get another ASAP. just to let you all know my skin is dry and has suffered from eczema since I was a child. I haven't broken out in about a year now but it does get dry and this body butter just feels so GOOD.

Go and get this now! or you can wait until I gain at least 25 followers by the end of this month and i'll have a giveaway just because I love this body butter so much and want others to try it. they also have a body wash which I want to try and other kinds of body butter, not just coconut lime. so go check it out. I got mine from bed bath and beyond for US $6.99.

Now onto the final product which is the

Avani Dead Sea Cosmetics Deep Cleansing Mud Facial GelI Personally LOVE avani dead sea cosmetics. last year around this time I was going trough a bad time with my facial skin. I had a lot of dry spots and it just looked and felt so bad. might have been because of the dry weather too but ffff. anywho I was buying facial products from the drugstore to ease the pain and dryness but nothing worked. one day I happened to find the dead sea cosmetics counter at a department store and a consultant there offered to give me a free peel. I accepted and she did a whole facial including toner, moisturizer etc. my skin instantly looked and felt better, I then got sold to the basic skin care kit which included a dead sea mud mask, the gel cleanser, toner and moisturizer. my skin got better instantly and i have been using the moisturizer and mask ever since.

I was reluctant to use this cleansing gel though but seeing as how lately i've run out of makeup remover and im wearing makeup more now (got unlazy) I needed something to wash it out at night so I remembered I had this and pulled it out. I have to say I really like it! it brightened my skin and left it looking and feeling clean.
I recommend it for anyone looking for a nice facial cleanser.

I wont go into more detail about the dead sea ingredients because this post has gotten too long. im sorry. lol

I am serious about the Tree Hut Body Butter Giveaway though! only if I reach at least 25 Followers by the end of this month. I will ship world wide so yeahh :D
