Can You Restore Lashes?

A few months ago I received a sweet little surprise that I have been dying to try inside of my monthly beauty subscription box, Birchbox. It was the new Restorative Lash Treatment and Mascara by Ojon. It has been on my must-try list and I was considering purchasing this product just a few days before its surprise arrival. Can you say #Winning?

Just in case you are wondering about the brand Ojon, let me spill the beauty tea! As you know, the air is filled with smoke, smog and pollution, which cause damage to the hair along with regular styling, the sun, diet and stress. Ojon’s mission is to help you transform your hair to perfect health with their hair treatments formulated from a 500-year beauty secret from the remote regions of the rainforest in Central America. The key ingredient inside of the treatment is the golden elixir obtained from the nut of the Ojon tree.

The golden elixir is hand extracted precious oil with natural ingredients, which creates natural affinity for the hair to restore radiance, bounce and body. It also offers vibrancy to repair even the most damaged hair. The products are made with natural ingredients that are 100% essential oils. The products are made without parabens, mineral oils and other harmful ingredients.

Okay, so now you know all about Ojon and their mission, let me give you the Glam it or Slam it and my final grade!

The Glam: This product is pretty cool because it’s multifunctional and we all know I love products that serve more than one purpose. It’s a treatment on one side and mascara on the other. The treatment side conditions the lashes to give them life and yes, it did that. The conditioning treatment seemed to separate my lashes more than if I had applied mascara alone.

The Slam: The mascara side is supposed to offer long luscious come hither lashes but when I used it a few times, I got regular lashes and irritated eyes. The mascara side was a disappointment to say the least. Even with three coats, it was just blah. This was quite the disappointment because the conditioning side was nice. Boo…Hiss

No mascara or Restorative Lash Treatment

My final grade for the Restorative Lash Treatment by Ojon is 3 out of 5 smooches…MUAH. This multifunctional product is not so multifunctional after all. The conditioning side is good but the mascara, not so much. If I am going to pay $21 for mascara it better give me long, full luscious lashes that I can’t live without and won’t irritate my eyes plus the conditioning side should offer the benefit of growing my lashes…IJS! If you are interested in trying this mascara, head over to birchbox.com and make your purchase at your risk…LOL. Happy Shopping!

Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum: Day 17 and Counting!!!

17 Days and counting with the Fysiko Eyelash Growth Serum via Influenster and I am starting to see a difference!!! I must admit…I was a little skeptical at first because I didn’t think there was a difference until I took the pictures!!! It’s kind of like going on a diet and weighing yourself everyday; you keep looking for the number to change but it stays the same until you try on those jeans and the fit is looser…FTW…you are now down 2 sizes!!! Yep, it’s the same thing just a different situation with makeup instead of weight…LOL

Here is what I have noticed: My lashes are not staggered with different lengths; they are all long and separated. I don’t even have to apply as many coats of mascara. It is easy to apply and it is not messy. It does not burn or irritate my eyes and I can apply it while I have my contacts in without any issues!!!

So far so good and I am pleased with the results up to day 17. Rumor has it that the some testers no longer have to wear mascara…hmm, I wonder if it will work like that for me??? IDK, but stay tuned for the next update in a week or two.

Comment below and tell me what you think of my progress!!!

Product Review on Lights Camera Lashes by Tarte Cosmetics

Are you looking for a new mascara???

I am always nervous to try a new brand of mascara because I don’t know what to expect. Will it clump, irritate my eyes or flake??? So when I recently ran out of my go to mascara, I had to talk myself into trying something new.

On one of my many journeys to Sephora, I asked a makeup specialist what would she suggest for someone who has allergies and sensitive eyes. She had 3-4 suggestions but Tarte Cosmetics was the brand I decided to purchase. I went with it because they are known as a high performance natural brand. Their products are made without all the things known as fillers that are no good!!! They are a cruelty free brand and they don’t test on animals. I don’t know about you but this sounds all good to me so I am ready to give them a try!!!

First off, let’s just say that I am totally smitten by the name alone and how clever it is. I love the unique packing of purple faux leather casing…just adorable!!! But I digress because the real question here is…did it work???
Here’s what I liked: It gave my lashes length that I have never experienced with any other mascara!!! I usually have to use 3-4 types of mascara to do the job of 1. As you can see, my lashes do not exists, so this gave me hope, faith and lashes…LOL. It also curls, gives volume, defines and conditions. I have been using this mascara for over a month and I can honestly say that my lashes do not fall out as much and my eyes are not irritated. The best thing is that it can be easily removed with my makeup wipes.
Here’s what I didn’t like: (insert crickets here) because I loved everything about it!!! My overall review if you have not guessed by now if 5 out of 5 smooches…MUAH!!! Lights, Camera Lashes cost $19 and can be purchased at Sephora or tartecosmetics.com
