     Lindo twist-n-roll tweezers is a hair removal tool that uses a similar process as the technique called hair threading. It removes the hair right from the root just like waxing or plucking. Now this was designed for the face but can be used on your legs, upper arms, toes etc. but do NOT use it under your eyebrows as it can grab your lashes. Just imagine how painful that would be!

How does the Lindo Twist-n-Roll work? 
     When you bend the tweezers into an upside-down U shape and place it against your skin, the coil opens, positioning the facial hair between the coils. When you twist the handles, the coil gently closes and grabs the hair; through the rolling motion, the coil opens and closes, and the hair is gently pulled from the root. Here is the directions with photos below!
     If you have sensitive skin or are doing this on your upper lip where it can be more sensitive, they suggest (and I do too!) to place a hot towel on the desired area for 2 minutes before hair removal. This opens up your pores and makes it easier for the hair to come out. Once your finished removing any hairs, you just wipe the coil with a dry cloth or paper towel and can rub it with rubbing alcohol to disinfect.
     This does work but is a little painful at first. I found it easy to get used to after a few tries though. The hot towel on your skin really does help. I used to use a razor for in between my eyebrows but now I use this instead since it makes it longer for the hair to grow back rather than just shaving it. I love that this is quicker than plucking too, because it grabs several hairs at once instead of the painstaking one at a time deal with tweezers! Only it is a little difficult to pin point the exact spot you want sometimes.

     Have you ever heard of people using hair dryers to heat up their mascara wands to get an easier application and reduce clumps? If not, now you do! But what a pain that is to use a blow dryer. Godefroy Beauty has this tool that is so much easier and really works! It's a Mascara Warmer!  
     Warming up your mascara before using doesn't just make your mascara easier to apply and reduce clumping. It also define your lashes more and hold a curl better! The best part is that you can use any mascara brand and it will fit comfortably in the opening. You can see in the photo above it has those flaps that adjust to the size of the mascara tube. The bright light doesn't do anything, but does make it look pretty.  : )
     Overall I like this idea. It's super simple to use too. Before I do any of my makeup I just put my mascara in the hole and turn it on and do all my makeup and apply my mascara last. This gives it time to heat up enough by the time I am ready for it. The mascara really does go on a lot easier since it's warm. I also noticed that it made my older tubes of mascara work a lot better. (Not really old tubes because your supposed to throw out after 3 months!!) So I believe this tool will help the longevity of your mascara from drying up to early!

Here's what I got in my Beauty Box 5
     I absolutely love sampling programs. They seem to have become really popular lately! I believe it's because people are tired of buying full size products and guessing if they are going to like it or not. By paying a small fee each month you can get samples like these ones I got here from Beauty Box 5. They also have you complete a profile so you can get custom Beauty Boxes in the future!
     The best thing about this box is that you can decide what type of membership you want. You can do monthly, quarterly or yearly subscriptions. It's great because you save money if you do it quarterly or yearly (saves you $6 or $44). The monthly box fee is only $12, the quarterly fee box is $30 and if you pay yearly its $100! So that is a feature that really makes this sampling program great! They also have a way to earn free boxes by referring friends! Easy and fun!

It's a 10 Miracle Styling Serum & Miracle Hair Mask
Miracle Styling Serum Remember, a little bit of this amazing product goes a long way and it's a lot easier to add more than to wash your hair again! Start with about a dime size amount and work it through your ends first. Felicity's Tip: Brazilian Buriti Oil in this Miracle Styling Serum is an amazing hydrator. When you're in a bind, you can spray a little on your cuticles or any dry areas on your skin and surprise ... it's a 10! 
Miracle Hair Mask For daily use, apply about a quarter-sized amount to freshly shampooed hair, leave for 2 - 3 minutes and rinse with cool water. Hair masks are a great way to revive hair after all sorts of events; swimming, over-styling, long-term sun exposure and especially coloring. For especially dry or damaged hair, apply a medium palm-sized amount evenly through hair, wrap in plastic and a damp, warm towel and level under heat (you can use your blowdryer) for 3 - 5 minutes.
Moonlight Radiance Night Cream Apply nightly to face, neck and chest area after washing and toning skin. You don't have to reserve this little jewel strictly for night. Felicity's Tip: When you're feeling a little dry or your skin is a little less than luster-ful just mix a little of the Moonlight Radiance Night Cream with your favorite toner (for a thinner texture) and apply to the areas where you need a little love.
