Beauty Spotlight: Living Proof Review

So I’m a part of a really awesome program called Influenster, you get free products to test out in exchange for reviews. It’s that easy and I can’t complain about the items I receive, they’re always fantastic and I end up falling in love with new brands.

Some of you may have heard of Living Proof, its high end professional hair care line, you can find it at your local Sephora or online. Here’s my thoughts:

Shampoo: Smells incredible, lathers nicely and rinses out well.

Conditioner: Smells incredible, left my hair feeling so smooth after I rinsed.

Mask: Total hydration!

Restore spray: Left my hair feeling like a million bucks.

All products I used together and my hair was hydrated, not weighed down at all, high shine, smooth and smelled great. As a cosmetologist I’m picky with what I use in my hair but I’m sold on this line, it’s fantastic!

Jessica Simpson “The Warm Up” Capris Review

   

 
I’m always on the hunt for really great exercise pants, preferably capris. I stumbled upon these on HSN.com last week and I wanted to try them because obviously they’re cute, I love Jessica Simpson Style and they were on sale, so I ordered two pairs.๐Ÿ˜


First off, I love the capris so much but I think they run very small, I normally would wear an XL in workout bottoms as I’m a size 16. I ordered size 3X because I read to size up and I have noticed a trend in designer clothing running smaller. (I probably would have fit in the 2X just fine because they are very stretchy.)

They are very comfortable and stretchy, they move with your body and do not heat you up while you work out, so your legs won’t get super sweaty. 

I wore my colorful purple pair today while working out and I got several compliments on them, I’m telling you, they are really cute! ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

  


 They also have a zipper pocket in the back to store your keys or card, it has a reflective stripe above the zipper as well. 

 
The retail price is $54.00 each but I scored them on sale for $14.97 which I think is a great deal! I highly recommend giving this brand a try, I personally can’t wait to try more of her workout gear, just remember to size up!
