Express Jeans For Men! Free Jeans Giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

I don't know about the guys in your family, but my brothers practically live in jeans! Of course, being in their late teens, they have to shop for men's jeans now. Which they like, because it means more variety and choices :) The youngest, E, prefers the slim fit. I checked out the selection of Slim Fit Jeans on the Express jeans website, and he would definitely love some of these! He prefers the darker blue denim, so he'd have plenty to choose from. My other brother, J, is more of the classic style. He does enjoy black jeans, so he'd be happy to see that the Kingston Classic Fit Jeans are available in a variety of colors-from light to dark, and even black!

Listerine Vibrant White Rinse Review! LLG




In my search for companies to feature during Ladies Lookin' Good, I came across Listerine. Now, of course I have used Listerine products for many years, but I was unaware of the variety of whitening products they offer. I received a bottle of the Listerine Vibrant White Pre-Brush Rinse for review, and this is an amazing product! With this product, Listerine makes it easy for you to have a whiter, brighter smile! You use this twice a day; morning and evening. Swish a small amount (1 oz.) around in your mouth for 60 seconds, spit out and then brush as normal. The bottle lasts for a little over 2 weeks, and provides great results! I like that by using a rinse, it doesn't just affect your front teeth, but your entire mouth. Even those harder-to-see-and-reach teeth get the benefit of this product! The rinse foams upon contact, so you can be sure each tooth is getting a full treatment. And it leaves your mouth with a very crisp, clean mint feel. And, with the Listerine name, you can be sure that in addition to the whitening, this rinse also kills those bad-breath-causing germs! So you get fresh breath and white teeth! 




"LISTERINE® WHITENING® VIBRANT WHITE™ pre-brush rinse is a new multi-action rinse with extra whitening power to prevent stains, fight plaque build-up for brighter teeth and control tartar that can lead to every day stains. No other whitening rinse is proven more effective. When it comes to your smile, there should never be a dull moment!
Quick and easy—just the way you like it. Use it twice a day for a noticeably whiter smile.
We've got those pearly whites covered. The dynamicfoaming action penetrates to whiten stains — even in places that are hard to reach.
Kills the germs that cause bad breath — of course,it's from LISTERINE®.

Beautyfix Membership Review and 4-Winner Giveaway! LLG




I'm sure most of you will remember when I featured Beautyfix on my blog earlier this year. Beautyfix is an absolutely awesome way to try out new and different beauty products at a fraction of regular cost. Basically you sign up, build a profile (skin type, hair type, special concerns, etc.) and then you are shown a large selection of products that fit your needs. From there, you pick 8 products (and a bonus cosmetic bag), pay $49.99 (shipping is FREE) and within 7-10 days you have a selection of beauty items delivered to your door! This is a super way to try out new items, and find exactly what fits your needs. Or get some products that you've never seen before! I was given a code to try out Beautyfix for the Ladies Lookin' Good event, and I had a lot of fun with it. After building my profile, I was amazed at the amount of products offered. It took a while to whittle my choices down to just 8 :) Here's what I finally chose. Perfect Fit Teeth Whitening System, Active Radiance Serum, Nick Chavez Diva Xxtreme Body Styling Glaze, Raw Skincare Ambiaty Eye Treatment, PureGloss Soft Peach Lip Gloss, Airhead Nail Lacquer, and Degree Classic Romance Body Mist. 




I really appreciate that Beautyfix doesn't use the little foil packet samples-each item I received is full size! (I know some of the products they offer are trial-sized, but nothing is those crazy small packets that you barely get one use out of :)
I also chose the small cylinder cosmetic bag to keep as my emergency overnight bag; it is the perfect size! 
It even comes with a little mirror in the end :)


My order came in within a week of placing it, and I was excited about using all the goodies. 


I used the nail lacquer right away; it is the perfect shade of pale pink! I don't like bright or bold colors on my fingernails, and this Airhead pink is just right. 




I also used a splash of the Degree Classic Romance Body Mist right after opening the box. This stuff is AWESOME. It is such a beautiful, feminine fragrance! A mix of woodsy and classic rose blend together for a totally feminine, long-lasting body mist. 
My next product was the Nick Chavez Diva Xxtreme Styling Glaze. This is a really sweet product too. It's a serum-like formula that you can use with a blow dryer, or just let dry naturally. I like to use a small amount after my morning shower, and let my hair air dry. This glaze keeps it shiny and frizz-free, without making it stiff or sticky.
All the other products worked great too, and provided excellent results! The Teeth Whitening System has enough gel for about 30 uses, so this will keep my teeth white and pretty for quite a while! The Active Radiance Serum is a nice, lightweight serum that provides a great boost of Vitamin C for your skin. I keep the Sheer Peach Lip Gloss in my purse; it is a nice shade that doesn't give a stand-out statement, but is a more soft, feminine color.


So, guess what? Beautyfix is giving 4 of my readers a gift code to try Beautyfix for themselves! (The gift code is good for 1 order of 8 products of your choice, bonus bag and free shipping).

Redken Intra Force Hair Care Review!! LLG




Do you have thin (or thinning) hair? While this is something I haven't had to deal with yet, my sister does. She has very thin hair that is hard to manage, and often laments over this fact.  So, when given the opportunity to try the new line from Redken, I jumped for it! Redken's Intra Force is a haircare system designed especially for people with thinning hair. It also reduces breakage! I had my sister try this out, and she really liked the results. Her hair was fuller and thicker, with less breakage! Intra Force is an easy 3-step system; nothing difficult or tedious about it. The detoxifying shampoo works to gently cleanse, and promotes hair density. It washes away excess sebum and DHT, giving you a healthier, happier scalp. The Toner is your equivalent of a conditioner. It detangles and moisturizes, improving your hair's manageability. Step 3 is the Scalp Treatment, which is a daily spray-in, leave-in treatment. It is very lightweight and again, promotes density. Combine these 3 products, and you end up with fuller, healthier hair!

If Intra Force isn't what you need in hair care, then I definitely recommend you check out the other Redken lines. I have, and I have yet to try one I didn't like! I love Redken!


"Intra Force is an exclusive 3-step system for men and women developed to combat the key causes of thinning hair while reducing breakage by up to 95%. Features two customizable solutions: 1) for natural, thinning hair, and 2) for color-treated, thinning hair. Intra Force’s targeted technology helps prevent thinning hair while stimulating the scalp and strengthening fragile strands."

Calm Space Stress-Reducing Fragrance Review and Giveaway!! LLG

Do you, or someone you know, suffer from claustrophobia? Do you get tense or stressed in small areas? We have a friend who absolutely will not ride in an elevator, because she doesn't like the tight, cramped space.  If you, too, are intimidated by confinement in a small area, no matter how short the trip, then you need Calm Space. Calm Space is a natural way to relieve the stress and tension of being in small or crowded areas. Available in 2 awesome scents; Lavender and Vanilla, these are the size of a lipstick tube. Perfect to put in your purse so you have it whenever you feel a little stressed out! I received a sample of each scent, and both of them are definite tension relievers! I liked the lavender best; it is such a peaceful fragrance. It actually works great when you've just had a rough day or you've been working outside all day-it's a great way to relax and loosen up a little-naturally!







"Feeling claustrophobic? The world closing in on you? Stressed? Breathe in our proprietary, therapeutic formula blending natural fragrances with pure essential oils. And relax...
Whether it's a crowded elevator racing to the top of a sky scraper, an elbow-to-elbow, too-close-for-comfort rush hour commute on a packed bus, the dread of boarding a crowded airplane, or any situation where space seems to be closing in on you, calmspace may help. The calmspace patent-pending, proprietary therapeutic formula of 100% natural fragrance extracts empowers you to help manage the anxiety resulting from claustrophobic reactions. Confidently use for a convenient, discrete, portable and personal option that may help you control your physical and emotional reactions to claustrophobic-induced stress. Anytime. Anywhere."
