Soliel Toujours Skincare and Sun Care Review


Disclosure - free sample provided.



I am always looking for great skincare products that help protect my skin from the sun.  I live in the Vegas area and it is already in the 90's here.  I am already using my sun care products this year!  Soliel Toujours is a company that offers a selection of skincare products that help you protect your skin from the sun.  They offer products for adults, but children too.  I think it's just as important to protect your little ones from those strong sun rays!  

Soliel Toujours is a brand that has created mineral based sunscreen products.  This is new to me, so I was very extcited to try the products out.  They have their own EcoSun Complex that can be found in their products.  I was truly intrigued.  This complex includes red algae, vitamin C ester, and more.  Soliel Toujours does not just offer one type of sunscreen either.  They have a great selection.  This is nice because not everyone's skincare and sun care needs are exactly the same.




Soliel Toujours offers a daily moisturizer.  This is a product that I apply after I get out of the shower in the morning.  It has an SPF of 20, so it is perfect to put on underneath my foundation.  The product is not oily and it feels great on.  They also offer a Mineral Based Sunscreen that has an SPF of 50.  I like to use this one on my arms and legs before I head out for the day.  I like the way this left my skin feeling soft and not sticky!  I love to keep a sunscreen spray with me when I am out and about.  This is such an easy way to reapply on the go.  Soliel Toujours offers a Mineral Based Sunscreen Mist with an SPF 30.  I love it!  They also offer a sunscreen for your little ones.  Soliel Toujours offers an SPF 45 sunscreen for children.  This is easy to apply on them too because it comes in the mist.  Lastly, I want to tell you about their Exotic Shimmer Oil.  This is the perfect way to add a hint of color to your skin.  It feels great on.  It is moisturizing and leaves my skin looking amazing.  

These are some of the great products that Soliel Toujours offers.  You can visit their website to learn more or to order.  You can also save on your purchase by using the code luanch10 at the checkout.  This will give you 10% off of your purchase and the code will expire 5/31/14.

Beauty Junkees Makeup Brush #Giveaway 5/15

Disclosure - free sample provided.

I think it is important to have the right tools when it comes to applying makeup.  If you don't apply makeup correctly, then it doesn't look right on.  Makeup brushes are an important part of applying makeup.  Do you have a favorite makeup brush?  I have a few favorites now that I have tried a selection of makeup brushes from Beauty Junkees.  Beauty Junkees offer a great variety of brushes that can be used for a number of different things.  I like to have a separate brush to use for foundation, powder, blush, and bronzer.  

Beauty Junkees products are created by experts and tested by makeup users.  Their website is loaded with helpful information.  They have great tips and techniques available on their website too.  This is a great way to find new looks to try out!





This is an easy to use brush.  The normal retail price for the brush is almost $30, but can be purchased for $11.97 for a limited time.  This brush is made of high quality synthetic bristles.  The bristles are soft on the skin.  I like that they do not irritate.  This brush is great for contouring and blending.  This is a brush that I know I will use often!




This brush is also a great price.  It is currently available for $11.97, but also retails normally for about $30.  The brush is a vegan brush and made with synthetic bristles.  I love that the brush does not shed the bristles either.  That is important!  The brush is also very soft.  It can be used for a variety of different applications.  I like to use it to apply my foundation.  Have you ever applied liquid foundation with a Kabuki?  It gives you a really nice soft look.





This brush is also currently only $11.97, but the normal retail price is about $30.  This is a wonderful deal.  The brush is tapered on the end.  The synthetic bristles work great to apply a little extra coverage where you need it.  The tapered end makes it easy to conceal around the eyes and nose.

Underground Cellar Wine Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.



Do you love trying new wines?  I want to introduce you to Underground Cellar.  This is a great website to purchase wines.  There website is really neat and the way it works is unique.  They offer a wine collections.  You can order anywhere from one bottle and up.  The collection consists of a number of wines.  You pay a certain price for your wine and you will receive wines from that specific collection.  If you pay $25 there is a chance you could get a $25 bottle, but there is also a chance you will get a more expensive bottle.  I have seen that some collections have bottles that are over $100 in them.  The shipping on their wine goes down in price when you purchase more bottles.  The best shipping deal is when you order 6 bottles. 




I had fun checking out Underground Cellar's website and deciding what collection I wanted to order from.  I kept checking back daily and found something of interest.  The collections do sell out, so you need to act on the offers quickly.  I ordered from a collection that they had called Merleaux.  I received two wonderful bottles of their 2011 Sonoma County Merlot.  I was impressed with the wine.  It was a full bodied red wine.  This is a smooth red and it is a dry wine.  

You can learn more about Underground Cellar's wine collections by visiting their website.  You can also order directly from their website.  You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
