Klout: Completely Bare Hair Removal Products #Review #CompletelyBareSummer

IMG_20140717_154659

 

Get beach-beauty ready with completely bare!

Got another Klout Perk and this one is package that has four products from Completely Bare.  CB is a line of products that I noticed recently being stocked at our local Target. Completely Bare makes hair removal……..well, more likable and less of a chore, which I thought was not possible. I love Summer but I don’t enjoy what it takes to achieve perfectly bare skin that is nice enough to show. CB takes the hassle away, so I am always up for making the shaving, waxing, plucking…….I wish I could torch them off experience just a little nicer. No matter how much we shave, “they” always grow back!

It’s a numbing and cooling spray that can be used before or after you remove unwanted hair. I use the Tria Laser and can say that I do yelp when it comes to the bikini area no matter how low I have the intensity, so I feel every zap. I came to the conclusion that it hurt if I am dialed down to 1 so might as well make the pain worth it and get faster results by just going full power to level 5…..the thought made sense but that zap made me question my bravery! Let’s say I underestimated. I used the numbing spray and I still feel the zap but the yelp is not there except for a few super sensitive areas. I’ll take it! I now can brave through it and just keep telling myself it’s for a good cause 🙂 My spray was leaking due to shipping damage (nozzle was hit and it keeps oozing) , so that is why it’s in a baggy but I could still use what was left.

Product Retails: For about $9.99

I have told my leg hairs that many times but they don’t listen. They have a mind of their own and I think some are even possessed, or maybe one day I was driving and cut the wrong person off and they now have a voodoo doll made of my me, in form of a topiary. I shave and they return sooner than in my opinion they should. My Voodoo Master must be using Miracle Grow! No matter what I try to barter with, my hairs are loyal to my voodoo doll owner. In comes Completely Bare with a potion that makes them listen. More of a lotion that does two jobs, moisturize and it’s laced with a hair inhibitor. Me likey already! I have tried this before from another brand and my hairs laughed at it. Not this time! Results show after 28 days of continuous use, so my magic potion has powers. I have wasted a month doing less than rubbing lotion on my legs and it works……so I claim my voodoo doll back. Mine!

Love the names because the products do perform like they are called. These pads are not like the acne pads of before, so don’t worry. These do kill bacteria with salicylic acid but also have glycolic acid to gently exfoliate and most importantly, help prevent the bumps and ingrowns from even happening. That’s Blasting in my book! I also used them on my legs and other problem areas and they work! No bumps and much better than picking, causing a scar, and without even getting the satisfaction of plucking the hair that caused the trouble!

Product Retails: For about $9.99

These strips are ready to use, no heating required and the kit contains everything you need.

Kit Includes: 42 wax strips in total: 12 body strips; 18 bikini/underarm strips; 12 face strips; 6 completely off towelettes

You simply rub the strip gently between you hands to create heat, apply, and pull when it has set just a bit. Some areas you will find some wax reside left behind but nothing the towlettes can’t take care of.

Product Retails: For about $12.99

 

  • Overall Results:

Overall, I was very happy with the performance of the top three products and found the wax strips performed better than most brands but some areas were tricky to wax due to the shape/size but I blame myself because I was not familiar. This is how I am at first with any wax removal product until I know what piece and/or shape works where. I like that there is finally a line of products that make the task of looking girly much easier! Thank you CB and Klout for this awesome perk!

Klout Perk: VitaFrute Cocktails by VeeV #abetterwaytodrink Acai Spirit #Review #Klout

IMAG0820

Another great perk from Klout and this one was one I have never heard of, Acai based spirits. The company VeeV has this great line of drinks that they call VitaFrute. The superfruit cocktails come in:

  • Margarita
  • Lemonade
  • Cosmopolitan
  • and with Coconut Colada joining the trio soon

The cocktails are organic and made with the finest ingredients. One serving is just 125 calories and these all natural drinks are considered to be made by the World’s first Acai Spirit Company, VeeV.

What is Acai?

I have been drinking Acai based juices and blends for some time now but not with an alcohol base. The Acai berry or fruit is derived from the Acai Palm tree. These dark colored berries are full of juice, which is considered part of the super foods and super fruits we are encouraged to be consuming. The fruit is usually cultivated from the Amazon and located where lots of water is available (i.e. swamps). The fruit is filled with antioxidants and many consume it for the claims attached to them. I do because I enjoy how it tastes and was rally curious about alcohol derived from it.

IMAG0812

I purchased the 2 bottles using the coupon from Klout and because they were on sale at my local Von’s, I was able to score them for free! I looked and hunted for the Coconut Colada variety since it would have been my first choice but I could not locate it but I did find the Lemonade and Cosmopolitan varieties.

IMAG0813

  • Lemonade– The flavor is perfect on a hot Summer day (or night) and I enjoyed the nice counter balance of alcohol and lemon. The combo was perfect and no mixing required. On my second glass, I added a little tart Cherry Juice and it was like a Pink Lemonade that was icy cool and delicious.

IMAG0818

  • Cosmopolitan– I have not enjoyed one of these in years and it’s almost the forgotten cocktail for me. I know I like them but never get around to ordering. I pour the Cosmo over ice and you can instantly pick-up the citrus and fruity notes. Delivers the same as it smells to your palette and definitely was my favorite of the two.

IMAG0814

VitFrute by VeeV contains 15% ALC/VOL (30 proof) and the bottle must be refrigerated once it’s opened. The taste is nice and clean, plus Agave is the only sweetener you will find in this drink. Fillers it has not! I enjoyed it so much that I will be making a Lemon Tart with the Lemonade version!  I shall get my hands on the Coconut Colada one day and when I do, I will post.  I have plans for that one!  The site has great recipe ideas to even a store locator so can enjoy a glass of cold VitaFrute too.

Klout Perk: New Garnier Clean+ Purifying Foam Cleanser Review #CleanPlus

Formulated for Combination Skin suffers, this new cleanser promises to deliver a better clean, plus rebalance your skin.

IMAG0447

I received a bottle courtesy of Garnier and Klout. I was interested because I tend to navigate towards foam cleansers anyways, so this was already a perfect fit for me, plus I do suffer from skin with an attitude. My combination skin/t-zone horror goes from being oily to even dry. It just can’t pick a side if it’s life depended on it. I think my flip-flopping comes from times I over cleanse and turn a semi-oily spot into a dry dead zone. I then could peel if I continue this route, so I’m hoping Garnier forces my skin to just behave…..give me just one season where it says, “let’s be normal for Spring”.

The Purifying Foam Cleanser features:

  • Deeply Cleans and removes Make-Up
  • Oil Free
  • With Results being visible after one use
  • After 1 week’s time, skin is softened and refreshed
  • Infused with Antioxidants
  • The Cleanser also has a nice Grapefruit & Pomegranate scent

Test Run, Day 1:

I skip the towelette I usually use to remove make-up because this cleanser states it has that covered. One and a half pumps and the product comes out perfectly foamy and not the type that collapses within a few seconds of coming in contact with air. You get a rich foam that disperses nicely over the skin and I did notice a full on attack on my eyeliner, mascara, and eye shadow. My make-up surrendered and I was left with skin that felt “normal”. You know, not tight like I have plastic wrap pulled over my face but also no left-overs from my cosmetics. Just freshly clean.

I use the cleanser for a total period of a week to see if I am happy with the performance……then week #2 and so forth.

Final Verdict:

I don’t break out and the cleanser has been 100% successful at always delivering a freshly clean surface after I wash my make-up off. It’s cost effective and in my opinion does a better job than my former towelette because I always saw the towelette as a “pre-clean”. You wipe with the wet cloths but I never felt my skin was clean sometimes it even felt more un-breathable than when I had make-up on. I swore it would cause clogged pores if I did not use my face wash after, so double the expenditure there. The Garnier Clean+ for combination skin, did not over dry my delicate skin around the eyes, cleansed the oily spots around my chin and center of my forehead (told you I was an oddball when it came to skin), and let my normal skin just pretend like everything is fine and dandy. The foam also feels nice and smells inviting…..I at least felt more relaxed after experiencing the Pom & Grapefruit aroma so don’t burst my bubble! Call it a face cleanse with a side of aromatherapy.

Price Point: Retails for $5.99 but I did see Target had it at $5.39. You add a manufacture coupon, Target Store coupon, plus the Cart Wheel app., and use your Target credit card with purchase……well, try not to smile too hard because that causes wrinkles 🙂

The Garnier Clean+ line has other formulas to suite your needs to:

  • Blackhead Eliminating Scrub
  • Nourishing Cleansing Oil
  • Shine Control Cleansing Gel
  • Soothing Cream Cleanser
  • Invigorating Daily Scrub
  • Balancing Daily Exfoliater
