MICHAEL TODD CHARCOAL DETOX SCRUB + CLEANSER

  HAPPY MONDAY GORGEOUS READERS!

Who else is loving this amazing east coast spring weather were finally being treated too after all the snow storms! Up for review today are two products I purchased as promotional gifts from Beyond The Rack when they added thirty dollars to my account. I didn't know what to use my fun money on so I purchased these two items and a pack of really adorable purple velvet hangers for my new wardrobe. The items are Michael Todd Jojoba Charcoal Facial Scrub and Michael Todd True Organics Charcoal Detox Deep Pore Cleanser. I have been reading about these types of skin cleansers trending as of late because of the ability of charcoal to draw out impurities from the skin so I thought I would test them out myself. By the way, did you know that charcoal is also an element contained inside water filters because of it's abilities to pull out dirt and impurities.

Detox Cleanser: This unique cleanser utilizes the properties of Activated Charcoal in a base of organic aloe vera to neutralize acidity and absorb impurities while sugar cane and maple provide gentle exfoliation for increased cellular turnover. Amazingly absorbent, Activated Charcoal is widely known for its ability to effectively cleanse the skin, unclog pores and remove deeper impurities and dead skin cells. Beneficial for all skin types, powerful antioxidants and tea tree and other essential oils provide effective anti-aging and blemish healing properties, including treatment of acne, rosacea and eczema. Sulfate free "no tears" formula does not irritate eyes. $23 7 fl oz.  

Jojoba Charcoal Polish Scrub: Unique polishing facial scrub using Jojoba Wax Beads and Activated Charcoal to effectively remove dead skin, impurities and toxins. Jojoba Wax Beads provide gentle exfoliation without leaving microlacerations on delicate skin. Highly absorbent Activated Charcoal penetrates deeply into pores to draw out impurities and toxins. Refines texture and encourages skin renewal, leaving skin smooth and refreshed. All skin types will benefit from this facial scrub but especially gentle for dry, sensitive and blemished skin. $18.50 3.4 fl oz

 Formula: The detox cleanser has a gel like consistency and a charcoal gray color with a light subtle scent. You need just a small amount of product to cover your entire face and the results are squeaky clean soft skin without any dryness or irritations. If you have severely dry skin you might not want to use this everyday or perhaps only on days when it's more humid. If you have super oily skin then I think you will love how this really gets your skin clean. The Jojoba scrub has the same scent, color and consistency with the exception of added micro beads that exfoliate the surface of your skin. The beads are gentle enough to use daily and didn't cause any breakouts on my sensitive skin. So far I'm seeing an improvement in regards to breakouts but because my skin is not oily it's not that drastic of a change for me. I actually try to use this a few times a week instead of daily because my skin is kind of dry right now even though both of the products are gentle. They clean so well that it seems no moisture is left behind. You oily type skin tones would love them.

Bottom Line: Not only do both of these products work in cleaning your skin and controlling oil prone breakouts but the brand is cruelty free and the ingredients are about ninety percent natural! It's a comforting feeling knowing that your not adding any dangerous chemicals on your body. This line seems to have a great range of products that I'll be testing out in the future. The prices also seem to be affordable for any budget. I'm glad I decided to try them out and recommend you guys do so as well. Is anyone familiar with the Michael Todd brand? Stay beautiful! XOXO

KUSHYFOOT SPRING TOE COVERS + SHEER ANKLET

HAPPY FRIDAY GORGEOUS READERS! 

*Product was sent to me for my consideration, my review is genuine and my own opinion*

A favorite brand that I always enjoy reviewing on the blog is Kushyfoot accessories and this season they are right on track with the new Spring 2014 collection of toe covers and sheer anklet's that fit in perfectly with summer's trendy flats. They come in some great basic and neutral colors as well as flirty pink shades but most of all they are super comfortable and help massage your feet while you walk.

KUSHYFOOT SPRING 2014
EXCITING NEW STYLES, HOT FASHION COLORS, INCLUDING MORE THAN 20 SUPER HOT FOOT AND TOE COVER LOOKS PLUS A SHEER FASHION ANKLET* LARGER SIZE FEET AND ADDITIONAL SKIN TONES ADDRESSED IN KEY LOOKS WITH ADDED SIZING AND COLORS*

“We’ve taken what we’ve learned by keeping our finger continually on the market’s pulse. Combine that with Kushyfoot’s unmatched comfort features, we have what it takes to deliver our most exciting women’s assortment yet,” said Mitchell Brown, president of Kushyfoot, introducing the Kushyfoot Spring 2014 collection.  At the forefront of their latest collection are more than 20 styles in the ultra-hot foot cover category—this includes exciting product introductions as well as variations to current bestsellers. For every shoe type, women can certainly find a suitable match that is both comfortable and suits their taste. For styles that are designed to show, Kushyfoot’s 2014 foot covers are super-chic and come in a rich palette of essential colors and textures. For occasions that require a no-show look, Kushyfoot has you covered. In fact, come Spring 2014, Kushyfoot will introduce a new category of foot covers called the extreme low cut style which provide all the benefits of Kushyfoot comfort and protection with the absolute minimum of coverage needed to keep product reliably on your foot. Foot covers will be offered as a nude/black combo pack in Regular and Large sizes in a basic silhouette (3671A/3671P) and lace (3669A/3669P). Large size 9-12 (designated by the P after the style number) is offered in time to meet consumers’ needs as the average woman’s shoe size has grown from 8 to 9. Best seller super ultra low cut foot cover (3478A/3478P) also adds the Large size to the line in a Nude/Black and Mocha/Black combo. Mocha, a great color for darker skin tones, will also be available in lace top (3488A). 

Stepping up a notch in coverage to the “ultra low cuts”, there is an abundance of novelty with the addition of trendy hot pink/black to dot & plain (3653A), and the introduction of two exciting styles: shiny dot and shiny floral (3662A, 3663A), both available in nude/black and silver/black.  The lace style (3455A) has been gaining popularity with its expanded color range so it, too, will be offered in the larger size (3455P) in the two top shades: black and nude. All foot covers retail for $3.99 for 1pr packs and $7.99 for 2 pr packs. Seamlessly-constructed breathable sport cotton foot cover (3652A) is also now being offered in hot pink. This style continues to boast a ventilated mesh top, arch support and stay-put heel. Perfect for chic casual or sport wear, the product retails at $4.49 per pair. Something real different and super useful is the toe cover (3463), sling back, also in a $7.99 2 pr pack, it covers toes sheerly and has an invisible back strap to keep in place.

In addition to the unparalleled foot cover category, the introduction of sheer anklet with comfort top (3657A, in nude or black) will undoubtedly be a favorite among fashionistas that will rock them with sandals and pumps and retail at $3.99. Last but certainly not least, Flats to Go® continues to be a signature style of Kushyfoot with women carrying around this product in its mini-purse pack everywhere they go! Available in ballet, open toe and sandal styles, flats feature a massaging sole for relief from high heels. Product is available in sizes 5-6, 7-8, 9-10 and retails for $9.99.
“Because Kushyfoot products are always trend-right with respect to color, style and features and because our products really add that level of comfort that every woman needs at an affordable price” Brown says, “I’m confident that we again have a winning formula for Spring 2014.”


Wear/Fit: The sheer anklet which is the last item pictured above was sent to me in one size and fits beautifully. I wear a size eight shoe and they fit about right with just enough give. As you can see from the image these anklet socks have padded insoles that relieves foot tension while massaging your feet. Plus they are super cute with a great pair of springtime pumps. These are made of 85% nylon and 15% elastane and are easy to wash by hand. The foot covers were sent to me in a regular size which fits shoe sizes five through nine and come in a pack of two pairs in two different colors. I received them in basic black and nude with two pairs in a lace material which are very feminine and flirty. These are really comfortable and have low sides so they don't show in your designer heels. You can walk around in killer shoes while getting your feet massaged and pampered with cushioned insoles. I think I love these the best because they slip so easily into all my trendy stiletto's. Last up is the sport sheer foot covers available in one size and are great to wear with your tennis sneakers or yoga shoes. They have a ventilated mesh top, arch support, stay put heel, precision fit and are cool and comfy on the feet. I love that these are available in a fun flirty pink color.
 
Bottom Line: I know you ladies don't want to ever give up wearing fashionable shoes and what better way to stay relaxed and pain free by wearing the ultimate comfort providing socks. These must have accessories are well made, affordable, available in a fabulous array of colors and sizes as well as being the most comfortable foot covers you'll ever step into. I definitely recommend you grab an entire bunch of these in the new light and airy spring collection line. Who's ready to walk the tension away in a cute new pair of flats this summer? Have a fabulous weekend. Stay beautiful! XOXO
