Simple Hair Styling

We’re always seeing commercials for new products that offer something too good to be true. The Goody’s Simple Style Spin Pin ($6.49) is one of them. It look like a bobby pin twisted into a swirl effect. The box brings two of them and it’s supposed to be all you need to hold your hair in place; Instead of the 40 bobby pins or scrunchie you’d normally use. It wasn’t until I tried it that I realized it really did work the way it says it will. Simply gather your hair and twist it into a bun. Then twist one or both of the pins on opposite sides. Wah-lah you have a bun without the million and one pins holding it together.

The pins come in different colors like Brunette, Dark Blond, and Dark Hair. And best of all, there are no dents in your hair afterwards from using a hair tie.

The Beauty of Tinted Moisturizer

A little color goes a long way. Having a golden complexion or simply getting a little color can always be achieved with the help of bronzer and tinted body lotions. Being a fan of 2-in-one products, it comes to no surprise that a tinted moisturizer would be one of them. They’re great at evening out skin tones and providing natural looking coverage. AVEENO’s Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer ($15) is a good choice. It protects against UVA/UVB with an SPF of 30. Positively Radiant is oil-free and hyper allergenic. It’s beneficial for all skin types, sensitive enough to use everyday, and not overbearingly shiny.

AVEENO’S has shown me great results and proved to work just how it says it will. The packaging is perfect to throw in your purse and comes with a top that lock by twisting; preventing it from opening up on its own. The color goes on sheer and the light smell isn’t overpowering at all. Tinted moisturizer can take the place foundation. Most, if not all, of your imperfections get hidden discretely with the tint.

If you’re looking for a moisturizer with more coverage try Hourglass Illusion ($55). It’s liquid based like a foundation making it great for drier skin. With more shades to choose from, you’re able to get one closest to your skin tone. The Hourglass formula is oil-free and has an SPF 15.
