Hi Guys! I recently did a beauty post and you guys asked for more skincare and beauty tips! So today I am sharing some of the new things I've been trying out including a new brow treatment I'm obsessed with! Buckle up, it's gonna be a long post but totally worth it!
Notice anything different about my face?! (don't mind my still under construction staircase) Specifically my brows?! To be fair I wear sunglasses a lot so maybe your haven't even noticed my brows! HA! Here's a little backstory on my brows that I swear are the struggle of my life! #firstworldproblems. So back in the 90's when Kate Moss reigned supreme with her super thin brows I basically butchered mine by over tweezing and I even shaved them once, wtf was I thinking!? They have never recovered. I no longer grow any brows, they are super sparse and have bald spots all over. So much so that a couple years ago I got another procedure done called micro-blading; basically semi-permanent tattooing. Since then its faded so I'd just resigned myself to penciling and filling my brows with powder. AND THEN my gf let me know about this new service she was offering at her spa Angelica B Beauty; called 3D Brows. Basically this eyebrow service re-constructs your eyebrows completely. It creates fullness and definition that cannot be achieved with regular eyebrow grooming. Ok so to simplify it, they tint and then place tiny hairs onto your brows! Like a brow extensions kinda! UHMAZING! Now it takes me 5min to do my makeup and I'm no longer fighting to get my brows to match or a shape I like! Hurray! I super highly recommend it to anyone who struggles with their brows and wants more fullness and control over their brows!
So here's the skinny on 3D Brows
- Waterproof and smudge-proof eyebrows, created by building on your natural shape to create fuller, thicker, luscious brows that have perfect definition! Yes please!
- The achieved high definition result is similar to permanent make-up except it's 3-dimensional and non-invasive. The look is tailor-made for each person and suitable for those who have naturally good eyebrows as well as those who suffer from partial or complete eyebrow loss.
- Takes about 1-2hrs. Maintenance is about every 2-3 weeks for touch ups. Maybe including a wax if you need shaping. I did not require a wax because I don't grow many stray hairs.
- The color is tailor mixed to be as close to your own natural.
- Feels and looks like natural hair and as you near your touch up time they fall off but I didn't notice any bald spots or anything.

The NuFace Mini Facial Trainer: Technology is big in beauty right now and I am all about it! About a year ago I had a facial where they used a NuFace micro-current device on my face and I swear to you, my face felt so firm, bright and like I had literally reversed time! I LOVED the results! I was so excited to try the new NuFace Mini Facial Trainer especially because of the ease of giving myself the treatment at home. They call it a facial trainer for a reason, think of it as a work out for your facial muscles. 5min every night consistently and you'll see the difference.
Sarah Elizabeth Skincare Bearberry & Apple Stem Brightening Cream: I've mentioned to you guys before that I struggle with pigmentation and I've been trying to find natural ways to treat my pigmentation issues. I love that I can use it during the day and at night unlike other pigmentation treatments that I can only use at night!
Mr. B's Necessities: Aromatherapy Roll On's, Deodorant & Candle; Ok I am late to get on the Aromatherapy bandwagon but when I received these portable and easy to use Aromatherapy Roll On's I was stoked! I've been using the Energy Boost and Calm/Sleep pretty much everyday and loving! And I might have also rolled a bit of the Calm/Sleep Oil behind my toddlers ears! ;) I'll definitely be taking the Immune Booster & Energy Boost with me to NYFW! Eeek, excited only 2 more days!
I've also been trying to phase out my deodorant for a natural option but let's be honest, I don't want to smell like a patchouli hippie (no offense) and I want something that works! Mr. B's Natural Deodorant absorbs and kills odor-causing bacteria and is safe to use! It does take a few weeks for you and your body to get used to it because it feels a little different but I if you remove all the yucky stuff (aluminum yuck!) out of your deodorant then there is a compromise.
