BioElixia Body Shaper Cellulite Creme 11.18.13 Certified FabulousI have a nice bum. I can say that because I squat (overhead, front, back, etc. etc.), I jump switch lunge, I run, I’m a crazy Crossfitter. I do all this, not to have a nice bum, but to maintain an acceptable level of mental health; the nice bum is merely a welcome side effect. However, like most women over 30, especially those of us who haven’t always had a nice bum (oh, how could I forget those 50 pounds I worked so hard to lose), my bum is a dimpled with a little..*gasp.. Cellulite. It’s what keeps me from really and truly loving my bum as much as I should.

Fortunately, I was introduced to BioElixia: Body Shaper. This cellulite contour crème is scientifically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite by upwards of 57% after only a few weeks. I knew I had to try this crème, in hopes of firming a reducing the dimples appearance of my bum and thighs. And although twice a day for 4 weeks (that’s when they say you start seeing results, although mine came much sooner) is quite the commitment for me, I had to see if it worked. Bioelixia uses a propriety system scientifically proven to improve the absorption of active ingredients. Ingredients such as caffeine and Vitamin A are incorporated into most anti-cellulite products, but I believe I experienced such success with this product because of the way in which the key ingredients absorbed into my skin allowing the benefits they provide to really work their magic. 

BioElixia Body Shaper is smooth and almost serum like in its viscosity. This product applies well, and absorbs immediately. I love the sensation, cooling and tingling. The vasodilators (Forskolin) and caffeine bring blood to area. I noticed a difference in my first week of using BioElixia Body Shaper, so much faster than any other cellulite cream I’ve tried. The fragrance is quite pleasant, as well. This Australian-born product really comes through with the promise to give you a smoother bum and thighs. I wish I could say I'm racing around in some cute shorts, but I would be kidding, this is Maine and its 40 degrees here on a good day. But at least I can say that I look amazing stepping out of the shower ;)

Inspired by makeup and beauty since a young age, Drew Barrymore, the renown actress, producer, director, and former Co-Creative Director of her own CoverGirl campaign, elaborated on her philosophy “You no longer have to spend a lot of money to get the quality cosmetics you want and deserve.” For the FLOWER beauty cosmetic line, Drew wanted to enhance a person’s natural beauty with long wearing makeup products. Drew believes in “[being] self-diligent and [being] true to yourself.” While caring a lot about what people think, she lays more emphasis on how they feel. So, through the FLOWER beauty line, Drew created products she really wanted to give to women.

I am a fan of Drew and have followed her career, to include her CoverGirl campaigns, for a long time now. I feel like she is very down-to-earth and easy-going so who better to create a makeup line! I love how Drew has a simple, light beauty while adding some "rebellious" flare to her look when needed. She has natural beauty so it's only fitting she creates her line FLOWER in the same tone. When first encountering the makeup line I loved how simplistic and easy to use the packaging was. Why spend all your money on the packaging of products instead of the quality and effectiveness of the actual product?! 

FLOWER beauty face the world tinted moisturizer hydration foundation liquid makeup drew barrymore certified fabulous

I experienced the FLOWER: Face the World Tinted Moisturizer which was a lovely soft moisturizer that did indeed give me a perfect hint of tint. It was very hydrating to my skin and felt like my face was fresh and clean, no makeup feeling at all or greasy moisturizing afterglow. If I wanted sheer coverage I could easily reach for this and apply quickly before I run out the door to the beach or lake. The sun is so drying to my skin that this is such a welcoming addition to my summer beauty regimen to help keep it nourished throughout the day and still providing coverage for an even skin tone. Even if I was looking for more coverage I would apply this tinted moisturizer before any other foundation just so I had moisturized skin with a perfect base layer of color. I also love mixing it into my actual foundation of choice for the day, it just has so many benefits and uses! A summer must-have for sure :)

Now that we have achieved the light coverage on our face we can jazz up the makeup to be ready for what the night will bring us for an adventure! The FLOWER: Color Play Crème Eyeshadow in "Time Willow Tell" is the perfect spice needed for romantic, shimmer eyes. I am already obsessed with creme shadows so I was very pleased to apply this one easily across my lids and have it flow and function perfectly! It was very soft, cashmere like texture felt airy and wore very comfortably on my eyelids for many...many hours! LOVE! The color was a steely, green bronzy shimmer that made my blue eyes pop! The color was buildable too so if I wanted more dramatics I just added more layers. Creme shadows are perfect for creating smoky eye and be as dramatic or as subtle as you want them to be. They are very versatile and I am starting to prefer them over powder shadow...although I still have a few fave powder ones ;) A HUGE plus in regards to creme shadows, and FLOWER beauty was no less of a hero in this category, they never crease and last forever! Long lasting beauty is ideal to me because I hate fussing and fighting to maintain my makeup look all day once I perfect it in the morning. No need to worry once you apply this shadow...no touch-ups ever!

Winter Hair as the weather turns colder... you are inside more... the dry heat is on in your house and work... and car... oh and don't forget most of us are blow drying our hair every time it is washed...  which all just equates to a bombardment of dry heat.   I am sure if you are anything like me and live in a colder climate, your hands are dry, lips are dry and hair has definitely looked better.

There are a few tips to helping your hair from look as dried up as you feel :)

1. Stay hydrated- drink plenty of water even though you are not in the sun all day your body still needs Water!

2. Wash your hair every other day- if you feel like your hair is looking limp... put a little bit  of dry shampoo at the roots ( just a bit)... brush through and go :)

3. Make sure you are protecting your hair before you dry it.  After you get out of the shower, use a leave-in condition.  See my blog about Leave-in Conditioners
