Now on to the fun part - the products I reviewed!
SinfulShine with Gel Tech Nail Polish - Retails for $2.99
If you love rich, shiny polish, then you will absolutely love SinfulShine with Gel Tech! I received this nail polish in the color Blue Suede Shoes and I have been rocking this color all summer long - with many compliments I might add! You can find all 32 shades for a limited time exclusively at Walgreens. If you don't happen to have a Walgreens in your area I have seen some of the colors in the SinfulShine line at my local Walmart (though it was not the whole line of 32 shades).
Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream - Retails for $12.99
The Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream is a tinted moisturizer featuring an SPF 15 offering UV protection and a hint of color to brighten your complexion. Add to that 24 hour hydration and you get an easy one step application for a flawless finish that protects your skin while you stay looking fresh faced all day long!
Before using the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream I had heard of BB Creams but had never actually made the jump to try one out. I had always been a foundation and powder girl myself. With the summer heat a lot of face makeup gets hard to manage and I liked the idea of a one step face application that also offered great sun protection. After one application I was hooked! While I do still like my old makeup routine, the Olay Effects BB Cream has been much easier to manage, and has looked just as good for a summer makeup routine that is fast and user friendly! I think this will be a new summer must have for me!
Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics - Retails for $3.99-$4.99
Summer also means up-dos. Ponytails, braids, and for those with long hair like myself, any way to manage getting your hair up out of your face in the heat. I was excited to try out the Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics. I of course also recruited my daughters to test them out this summer with me as well! All of us girls have a range of different hair types from thick to thin, and very curly to stick straight. The Goody Ouchless Elastics worked on all of our different hair types and we all were able to keep our ponytails tight and manageable no matter what the occassion (swimming, hiking, etc.). We love Goody!
Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles - Retails for $10.99
If you love high heels but hate achy feet after wearing them all day then Dr. Scholl's has the answer for you with their Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles. The unique design helps to prevent high heel pain by shifting the pressure off of the ball of the foot and they are practically invisible - even in strappy heels! A unique adhesive keeps the insoles in place and you can easily remove the insoles without causing any damage to your heels.
While I'm more of a flip flops and sandals girl in the summer, there have been a few occassions where I have needed to get dressed up and wear my heels these past few months so I took the opportunity to try out the Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles. My first impression was that they were very comfortable! The gel inside the insoles makes walking in your heels much more manageable for sure! At the end of the day I did notice my feet did not hurt as bad as they usually do and overall I would say that these insoles are definitely worth a try!
