Pantene Charcoal Collection

I am so excited to be partnering with Pantene!! Pantene is an original in the hair game, and I’ve been using their products forever! I love that Pantene has always focused on not only beautiful hair, but super healthy hair to support confidence and boldness in women – they have known about the benefits of pro-vitamin B5’s for your hair since the 1940s!

I know there are so many products on the market right now that it’s hard to decide which product to buy, so I wanted to share with you that I recently discovered Pantene’s new Charcoal Collection, and I love it!!

The Pantene Charcoal Collection’s shampoo and conditioner uses activated charcoal, which gently purifies your hair by absorbing impurities, like magnetic attraction! Unlike your skin, your hair does not have a built-in purification system. If you are like me and go three or more days without washing your hair, then all the scalp oils, styling products, dry shampoo, you name it result in dirt build up! That build up can cause your hair to gain 4% of its own weight!

Pantene’s Charcoal Collection specifically addresses this issue with activated charcoal, which is a purifying ingredient that you may have noticed has become a major player in several health and beauty products! Activated charcoal works to detox hair by attracting impurities while simultaneously releasing antioxidants, which helps your hair look refreshed and clean with tons of body and shine!! The formula is also super lightweight!

Look at how amazing my hair looks after using the shampoo and conditioner! My hair feels super clean and looks bright and fresh because of the activated charcoal. My hair also looks way more shiny than it does when I use other shampoos and conditioners.

I can’t say enough about how much I love the Pantene Charcoal Collection Shampoo and Conditioner! You have to try it, and right now there is a great promotion going on – for a limited time, Target is having an in-store and online promotion, where you receive a $5 gift card after purchasing a select number of Pantene Charcoal Collection  products.

When your hair looks good, you feel good. After all, nothing gives you the confident boost that a good hair day does!

I love Pantene’s products because they make it so easy to have beautiful hair.  I don’t know about you, but having a bad hair day will put a damper on my day, but when my hair feels great I feel like I am ready for anything!  Pantene helps me have more great hair days and feel ready to take on the world!

Have you tried the new Pantene Charcoal Collection!? I would love to hear about your experiences!

Xoxo,

Emily Men

Holiday Ready with Amopé Pedi Perfect Foot Files from CVS!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Amopé. The opinions and text are all mine.

Wow, can you believe the holidays are already upon us?! This is my favorite time of the year, and with it comes gift-giving, which I love! It is so much fun looking for the perfect gift for my friends and family, but it can also be super challenging trying to figure out exactly what everyone wants! Every year when I sit down to make my list, I think about not only what everyone would want, but also items that they might need.

The Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File is definitely a permanent part of my beauty regime. After walking around all day in fabulous but sometimes painful shoes, it’s totally natural for us to develop hard calluses on the bottom of our feet, as much as we all don’t want to admit this! That’s why I love this foot file - the extra coarse roller head has long lasting micro-abrasive particles, and the newest version comes with finely ground diamond crystals! Yes, that’s right- diamond crystals! So fancy, right? It buffs away all of the hard skin leaving you with visibly smooth feet that you will want to touch all day long!

You’ll see results right away – beautifully smooth skin after using it just once! The design is also so thoughtful – it has an ergonomically designed soft touch handle so it feels great in your hand. The head is also replaceable so it’s always working at its best, and the product is battery operated.

This has always been one of my favorite products to use, and it’s definitely something everyone on your list can use too and will love!  I like to package it with my favorite nail polishes and give it as part of a perfect pedicure gift set!

I love shopping for my everyday needs at CVS, and it’s an extra bonus when I find things that make perfect gifts as well! CVS always has everything you need and that’s where you can find the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File! You can save an extra $10 with this coupon HERE! When buying all these holiday gifts for everyone we can all be a little strapped for cash, it’s always nice to get a coupon to save some money! You can easily find this product in the foot care aisle in CVS and if there is ever an issue looking for it, you can just ask one of the many friendly and helpful employees at CVS!

I of course love the pink color, but don’t forget about the men on your list! This is also a great gift for the guys, and they have a blue color that they’ll love!

What is on your holiday wish list?! Have you started shopping for the holidays yet? Trust me – it pays to start early!! Nothing puts a damper on your holiday season more than last minute shopping. It’s going to come up sooner then we all think and the Amopé Pedi Perfect Extra Coarse Electronic Foot File should be on the top of your list (hint: it’s the perfect stocking stuffer)!

Xoxo,

Emily Men!

#SPFobsessed with Supergoop!

I never leave the house without first applying my favorite Supergoop! products: The City Suncreen Serum, Defense Refresh Setting Mist, and Invincible Setting Powder! I love skincare, and have talked to a ton of dermatologists, facialists, and makeup experts, and the one piece of advice I hear over and over again is how important it is to wear SPF EVERY SINGLE DAY. It is and should be the most important part of your beauty routine! It’s a fact that 90% of the signs of aging are caused by daily UV exposure. Skin cancer is preventable, but it is still the #1 cancer diagnosis!! How crazy is that?! It is so important that everyone adds SPF to their morning beauty routine, whether you are a sun lover (like me!) or not!

The first step in my beauty routine is the Supergoop! City Sunscreen Serum to prep and hydrate my skin before applying any makeup! I love this product because it’s super lightweight and can act as a multi-tasking moisturizer that protects against those UV rays, pollution, and all the harmful environmental damage we are exposed to everyday! This product is packed with antioxidant protection from Vitamins E and B5, which are also super moisturizing. I also love that this product has broad spectrum SPF30. The serum also acts as a great primer – I’ve found that my makeup stays on longer when I start with this as a base!

I always finish off my morning beauty routine with a spritz of the Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist. It sets my makeup and gives me the perfect matte finish, keeping you shine-free all day! This mist also delivers sun protection, as it has broad spectrum SPF 50, and it smells amazing! The spray is infused with refreshing rosemary and mint, which is a wonderful morning pick-me-up! I absolutely love it!!

I’m also obsessed with Supergoop!'s Invincible Setting Powder (which has SPF 45!!) because it’s so portable and convenient. I love this setting powder for an instant refresher throughout the day when you are feeling a little shiny or just want some extra sun protection!! It’s sweat resistant and really gets you through the day!

After completing my SPF routine with Supergoop!, I’m ready for anything!! Don’t forget to reapply SPF every 2 hours when you’re in direct sunlight! The Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist  and Invincible Setting Powder are perfect for mid-day touch ups, which give you extra protection while maintaining the freshness of your makeup!

Brunchin’ with SkinCeuticals!

I’m obsessed with skincare, and one of my favorite lines is SkinCeuticals.  I was thrilled to be invited to a luncheon hosted by SkinCeuticals, where we got to learn more about their clinical research on Atmospheric Skin Aging, which was published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology.

It’s no secret why SkinCeuticals is so popular with dermatologists, doctors and aestheticians everywhere – they stand out in a sea of skincare brands because their science is solid.  Every single one of their products reflects the research, science and technology they have mastered. SkinCeuticals has been researching atmospheric aggressors for over 30 years, and the aging associated with it, Atmospheric Skin Aging, is caused by basically everything around us – UVA/UVB rays, infrared radiation (IR), visible light (even your kitchen lights!), air pollution, ozone pollution, particulate matter, and cigarette smoke!! Ahhhh! So what does this really mean for our skin!? All of these aggressors cause cellular damage which triggers contributes to skin again! Nobody wants that!

Through years of research, SkinCeuticals discovered that certain combinations of antioxidants perform better together and brings about better results then they do individually. Their antioxidants neutralize the free radicals induced by ozone pollution exposure to help reduce all this damage that has been caused by the exposure to ozone pollution! One of my favorites and one of their most popular products C E Ferulic, which is a revolutionary antioxidant combination that give you 8 times the protection that your skin has naturally. It’s a breakthrough antioxidant that is a combination of L-ascorbic acid and alpha tocopherol, combined with ferulic acid, which doubles the performance and protects against UV rays, free radicals, and cellular damage that causes premature skin aging! Research has shown a 96% reduction of sunburn cells in TV irradiated skin!

My skin is super dry, super sensitive, and is prone to hyperpigmentation, so this product is a miracle worker. After just using the product for two weeks, I’ve seen such an improvement in the tone and texture of my skin!! I love trying new products, but when I find one that works, I keep it in rotation, and this one is going to stay in my routine. It’s perfect for all skin types and also improves the appearance of wrinkles of loss of firmness!

If your skin is more oily/combination, then Phloretin CF is perfect for you! It’s formulated with l-ascorbic acid and ferulic acid, as well as phloretin, which helps improve cell turnovers neutralizes damaging free radicals, which will improve the overall appearance of your skin and help with discoloration, without being overly nourishing for already oily skin.

Another one of my favorites is the H.A. Intensifier!!!! If you have dry skin like me, this is the perfect product for you. Hyaluronic acid is a super important to maintaining your skin’s natural biomechanical properties, and it helps regulate moisture levels in kin. This product helps to renew plumpness, elasticity, and firmness. The appearance of crows feet, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines are reduced and it even refines your skin’s complexion!

The most important step in my skincare routine is to WEAR SPF!!!!!! It is so important especially when you are out in the sun, but a lot of people don’t realize that even if you spend most of your time indoors, you still need it! I absolutely love SkinCeuticals Physical Matte UV Defense SPF 50!! This product is a 100% mineral filter sunscreen that is formulated with oil-absorbing aerated silica technology which leaves a smooth and mattified finish with the broad spectrum UV protection you need! No one ever wants to look oily, so this product is perfect, especially for those hot and humid days!

I am so  grateful to have been a part of this super informative luncheon with SkinCeuticals, and can’t wait to add more of their amazing products to my skincare routine now that I know I have to protect my skin against Atmospheric Skin Aging! Cheers to beautiful and protected skin! XOXO

All the fun with L.A. Colors!

I love all things beauty, and love playing around with makeup! Beauty 21’s L.A. COLORS is one of my favorite brands because they have such a diverse collection of colors and products, all of which are available at amazing price points!

I love eyeshadow that pops, and the L.A. Colors Pigment Powders are perfect.  They are available in a wide range of bold colors with a frosty metallic finish that really packs a punch! Like all of their products, the powders are super long lasting and how amazing is this packaging? For everyday wear, I love Foiled, and when you want to have a bolder, more nighttime look, Twinkle is so good! There are 12 gorgeous shades to choose from – find your favorites here!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed by now, my favorite part of a beauty look is always the lip! I love wearing different shades to compliment my outfits, and although I am typically more drawn to the brighter hues, these nudes are so great for everyday wear! The new Matte Liquid Lip Colors are great because they are super easy to apply (just like a regular lip gloss!), but the liquid formula dries to a SUPER matte finish that stays on all day and doesn’t dry out your lips!

I mean, how gorgeous are these shades? My favorites are Pampered for a gorgeous bright lip, and Vixen and Sultry are the perfect nude shades! Check out all their colors here.

Since I’m usually sporting a bold lip, the See You Later Lip Color Remover is super helpful when I have to change quickly from one look to another. This remover instantly takes off and dissolves even the brightest, darkest, longest-wearing lip colors, and leaves your lips feeling refreshed and new! Obsessed with this! Buy here!

You’ll really elevate your brow game with the Browie Wowie Brow pencils! My favorite off-duty looks is a fresh face with a strong brow – these brow pencils make it so easy and quick! These brow pencils add so much definition and have a slant-tip, which makes it easy to use. The end result is a super natural but defined finish! Find your shade here!

The final step in getting your brows ready is using a brow gel. The Browie Wowie Tinted Brow Gels will lightly tint and keep your brows in place, as well as thicken your brows, and are the perfect complement to the Browie Wowie Brow pencils! I love these! Find your shade here!

My two favorite mascaras from the line are the Drama Lash Mascara and the HD Waterproof Mascara! The Drama Lash formula intensifies your natural lashes, leaving you with super lush and luxurious lashes! It also nourishes and conditions with Vitamin E and Pathenol, which is so great. I usually layer on one coat of the HD Waterproof after applying Drama Lash so I get the ultimate high- definition look that lasts all day!

Life would be really hard without the right tools for our make up! This is the perfect set for everything you would need, and at a great price – you are able to get this full set of brushes for the cost of just one brush from another brand! This set contains a large powder brush, contour sculpting brush, multi-purpose brush, highlighter fan brush, concealer brush, tapered blended brush, and the precision lip brush! Everything you need in one handy set!

Who else is excited to play with all these products from L.A. COLORS? Xoxo

Positively Clear with Tria!

As you guys know, I am obsessed with skincare, and one of my favorite things to do is to try out new products. I have generally good skin, but I do get the occasional break out, especially around that time of the month. I always freak out when I can feel a pimple coming in, and I usually start to play scientist on my skin, which is not good! Usually the result of that is a minor burn and rashes, or extreme dryness from the harsh products I put on to get rid of it!

I’m always game to try the newest products and innovations in skincare, and recently I stumbled upon Tria’s Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light. I love facials, and always request they use the LED light treatment at the end of my facial to kill any bacteria on my face, so that I don’t break out after. When I saw Tria’s product, I was instantly interested in a tool that would allow me to treat myself at home with the same technology I always pay extra for in my facials. I chose to order the Clearing Blue Light along with a bundle that included the Tria Positively Clear Foam Cleanser and Positively Clear Spot Treatment, which I think complements the light treatment really well. But, you can also get items individually if you don’t want the bundle.

When I got the product I was so excited to try it! First, make sure the Clearing Blue Light is charged! Start with a clean face – I used the Positively Clear Foam Cleanser.

The Tria Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light comes with a treatment guide that you put around the affected area you are treating. It helps to frame the area you want to treat and makes it easier to guide the light within the treatment area.

As you can see, I used the treatment guide to frame a breakout on my face. To turn on the device, press and release the button until you hear a beep – that’s how you know it’s ready to use!

When you start, place the treatment tip inside your guide that you put on your face. You need to continuously guide the treatment tip evenly across the entire treatment area while maintaining constant contact with the skin for five minutes. The device will indicate the treatment is complete with a chime – you’ll know you’re done when the device’s light turns off! Just make sure that you maintain direct contact with the skin for the whole 5 minutes. I like to follow up with a drop of the spot treatment!

You can definitely feel the device working on your skin – there is a slight burning sensation but it doesn’t hurt, and it’s totally worth it for the amazing results! It’s best to use the product once a day until the breakout you’re treating is gone, and it works best for mild to moderate acne. If you’re like me and freak out over the occasional (or not so occasional!) breakout, then I really recommend it – it’s honestly amazing and so easy to use.

Now to get technical, because I always like to know everything about the products that I use! Tria’s Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light clears skin from within, because the blue light gently infiltrates pores and eliminates acne-causing bacteria to get to the source of the problem. Unlike most acne treatment products that use harsh, drying chemicals to fight breakouts on the surface, the Positively Clear Acne Clearing Blue Light uses a powerful dose of acne-zapping blue light that penetrates into your skin. The impressive beam, packed inside a sleek, contoured device for an easy grip, targets the source of your breakouts deep within the skin.

And just after two days of using this, my skin is back to normal completely!! Obsessed!!

Xoxo,

Emily Men

Dove Hair #SkipAWash Challenge

dove

I've been obsessed with dry shampoo since it first gained popularity a few years ago because I have never been a fan of washing my hair.  That's why I'm so excited to be partnering with Dove for the #SkipAWash Challenge!!  I use it whenever I go a few days between washes, and Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purifying Dry Shampoo always leaves my hair looking as good as it did the first day!
dove
Dove Refresh+Care Detox & Purifying Dry Shampoo has a weightless formula that cleans by removing oils from the roots without leaving visible residue, leaving your hair cleansed and purified.  It's formulated to suit all hair types and colors - all you need is a few quick sprays to help control the oil and refresh your hair whenever you skip your daily wash!
dove
It's so simple to use!
Step 1: Shake the can before and during use! Spray it on lifted sections of your dry hair maybe 8-12 inches from roots. That's where hair is most oily!
Step 2: Massage through the roots so the formula absorbs the oil evenly.
Step 3: Brush through, and you hair will be revived and clean!!

My Madison Reed Color

I have been coloring my hair for a long time – ever since I was 15 years old! When I was younger I didn’t think about what ingredients were in the dye or what the right color shade was for me, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve become more cognizant of what I’m subjecting my hair to! Using gentle ingredients that won’t damage my hair and finding the perfect shade has become so important to me. That’s why I was thrilled to discover Madison Reed – this is the only thing I use on my roots between my highlight appointments! It gives you the same root-touch up results you would get in the salon, but in the comfort of your own home.  And trust me – it’s so easy!!

Madison Reed is awesome because they have solutions for everything hair-color related – from color-matching and caring for your color to step-by-step guidance to your at-home hair color experience.  All of it is done with a personalized approach that ensures you can color with total confidence.

madison5

They created the first ever Smart 6-Free permanent hair color that is free of ammonia, parabens, resorcinol, PPD, phthalates, and gluten. They also added hair-loving nutrients like keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root extract to protect and pamper your hair, which makes a huge difference because we all know how damaging traditional hair dye is to your hair!

Madison Reed has professional colorists to help match your perfect shade. They have expert colorists on staff who are there to answer all of your hair color questions from start to finish — you can call, email or chat, they are always there for you!! I was able to find my perfect shade, Napoli Brown, after a quick call with Madison Reed’s experts. I documented my experience below so you can see how easy it is to do at home!

madison7

STEP 1: I squeezed Napoli Brown into the cup that came with my kit! All of the tools that Madison Reed sent in their hair color kit sent are the best!  The brush and the cup made the whole experience so much easier!

madison8

STEP 2: I added in the conditioning color activator!

madison6

STEP 3: After the color cream and conditioning color enhancing activator are in the cup, it’s time to mix it all up! Make sure to mix it well!

madison4

STEP 4: Brush the color on where you desire! I am only darkening my roots for a more dramatic “ombre” look, so I just applied the color to the roots of my hair. I sectioned off my hair and started on the lower sections so I didn’t miss any spots!

madison1

After I finished the lower sections, then I start to do the top layer!

madison2

The process continues until you have covered all the areas you want to color!

madison

Done! I wanted the roots to be darker, so I left it on around 35-40 minutes.  See the finished results below!!
