Where do I even begin with this brand? Not only was it started by one of my biggest girl crushes, but it exudes everything that I look for in a beauty brand – clean and cruelty-free!  I had the chance to talk to the “skin snob,” herself and find out where the idea of ‘FRSH,’ originated from, the reasoning behind the name, and why she chose to ensure that all her products remain cruelty-free!
 FRSH is all about celebrating your unique beauty with all-natural products that you can feel good about putting on your skin and in your hair.

Frsh products are meant for the girl on-the-go who leads a busy, active lifestyle and is looking for a quick and effective skin-care routine. HALLELUJAH! 

Tea believes that proper skin care is so important to look good and feel good. There’s nothing worse than bad skin – am I right? The thing is, what she had…

I ordered my dog a matching leash and collar with his name on them. Weezy is a lovable Pitbull.. I choosed a brown leather collar and matching leash. Since i love the way brown leather looks on his black coat! Not only can you choose the type of collar you want , but you also get a buckle on it with your dogs name and your phone number! So no need for adding tags if you dont want to . Collars are adjustable, made of strong yet soft material with a secure lock. And of course it comes with the matching leash with the same buckle on it personalized with your dogs name & your phone number ! Now ive had many types of collars and leashes ive bought my dog and this one from pridebites is by far the BEST! Its actually REAL leather it even smells of great quality leather which i know will last forever!

The Leashes are tough with heavy duty stitching to handle an active dog. The durable easy-open clasp securely connects to your dog’s collar to ensure your dog is safely locked in, and the comfort-grip handle provides padding to make sure you’re cozy too!

I love having weezys name on his collar, I take him to a local dog park regularly and now everyone knows his name! And i feel more at ease knowing my phone number is on him no matter what incase he ever gets lost ..

Bottom Line: Pride Bites makes high quality products  It’s easy to order and customize. I’m addicted! I want to order a bed, blanket and toy box next!

About Pridebites.com…..

When PrideBites started, they were just a group of dog loving college friends. They were unhappy with the look, feel, and versatility of dog toys on the market, so they decided to create one themselves. In their first year, they found out that dogs everywhere loved Custom PrideBites as much as their own, so they began to work on bringing customization to all the other essential pet products. Now they can help you design all of them fast and easy! The top priority while building out the PrideBites custom catalog was to create it with you in mind! At PrideBites, their motto is “Your Pet, Your Choice™” and they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Recently the owners were on one of my favorite TV shows, Shark Tank. It was quite an interesting episode! The boys almost lost got Robert Herjavec interested as well as the “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner. Robert offered for $200,000 for 20% of the company while Lori battled back with $200,000 for 18%. Pride Bites countered with $300,000 for 20%, then Robert countered again with $300,000 for 20%. Lori became confused when Robert went back to the original offer of $200,000 for 20% which he thought included Lori. “Mr. Wonderful” Kevin O’Leary started to jump in when Lori sealed the deal. Final deal: Lori and Robert are in giving Pride Bites $200,00 for a 20% stake in the company–10% each. Things happen fast in the Shark Tank! I can’t wait to see what changes will happen as a result of this partnership, the sharks stressed the company needs more online sales and who knows–maybe we’ll see Pride Bites products on QVC

Pulse Technology:
You not only need a lot of heat for curling your thick or coarse hair, but heat must be consistent for better performance. On the other hand, curling irons need to heat up within a very short time. Otherwise, you have to wait for a long time which nobody would like. You will not have very pleasant experience if the heat varies while curling your hair. Put an end to this sort of discomfort having one of these products because this product has come with Pulse Technology. Pulse Technology ensures that the irons get hot instantly and remains hot as long as you want it to be. Thus, you do not need to wait for the iron to heat up which will save your valuable time and you will get consistent heat for the best performance. Eventually, you will be able to curl your hair quickly and comfortably.

Hot Tools Blue Flat iron

Next, lets take a look at the wattage power. Basically, the more watts, the more heat and the quicker the flat iron will heat up. Both the Andis and Hot Tools flat iron come with around 170 watts; the Maxiglide has 200 watts and heats up to 428F in seconds. Also, the Maxiglide hair straightener with steam has full control over its heat settings compared to only 3 fixed setting with the Hot Tools steam hair straightener. The overall look and feel of the Maxiglide flat iron is also better than either the Hot Tools or Andis flat irons. Greater attention to detail has gone into the design. The handle of the Maxiglide hair straightener has been ergonomically designed, with rounded edges, to make it easy to use. Also, the position of the on/off switch has been positioned that that it is easy to switch on and off when you want, but without turning it off by accident.

All of FHI flat irons are of top of the line and you are guaranteed it is done is good quality. FHI flat iron uses a state of the art technology called tourmaline technology. Tourmaline is a type of crystal that has the property of producing lots of negative ions. These negative ions emitted by FHI flat irons, are vital components in locking hair moisture and sealing the hair follicle resulting to a shinier and frizzy free hair. 20 more times negative ions are produced by tourmaline as compared to ceramic plates commonly used by other flat iron products. Their multi-functional flat iron works well with all types of hair from straight, curly or wavy. Its versatility just doesnt stop at straightening and curling, you can also create many diverse and different hairstyles that you prefer. With a simple snap you can do the trick. They are also known for their easy and cost effective methods of operation. You will never regret using this since it is a very good investment that could last for years; definitely worth every penny.

Tourmaline is a precious crystal that is ground down into a fine powder and then infused onto the ceramic plates of a flat iron. Tourmaline plates produce a far greater number of negative ions than do ceramic plates. Negative ions straighten your hair for far longer and give it a silkier, shinier look. So, if youre thinking of buying a flat iron you should only buy a flat iron with plates that have been plated with tourmaline. But which is the best tourmaline flat iron? Surprisingly, the vast majority of producers still make ceramic only flat irons. However, the market leaders in flat iron design and manufacturing now produce tourmaline flat irons. The following are market leaders in tourmaline flat iron technology, and all make top rated tourmaline flat irons. Which tourmaline flat iron is best depends on your hair type, what function you want and how much youre willing to spend

Hot Tools Tourmaline Ionic Lite Professional hair dryer 

 

60BED85B-EFEA-49C1-B0D4-681E5E4E926A

The Hot Tools Tourmaline Ionic Lite Professional Hair Dryer (#1043) is lightweight, but contains eight settings for speed and heat, giving it remarkable versatility. The Tourmaline magically transforms heat into far-infrared energy, which penetrates the hair into the cortex. This enables it to dry the inner hair without drying out the cuticle. A dry cuticle, hair will be more brittle, so when you are able to not dry it out it looks and feels moisturized, even when totally dry. In addition, the ionic technology can reduce frizz and flyaway hair and leaves your hair smooth and silky. Not to mention that it has 1600 watts of power saves 15% more energy while drying in half the time. Its 1¾ inch nozzle can be used with the concentrator or pik attachment, which come included, but it also accepts most universal-fit diffusers. Hot Tools stands behind all their products with warranties that will last between one to three years.

Hot Tools Hair Dryers solve the most frequent problems that users have with blow-dryers—the frizzy, dried out hair that takes much too long to dry. With hundreds of blow-dryer options out there, Hot Tools must be pretty special to receive such a distinguished award. Hot Tools’ commitment to bringing advanced technology to hair styling tools has brought them to be an award-winning salon brand

Hot Tools The Deep Waver

16F850D0-A538-4182-B3D0-2E56BB1EB72D

My hair is naturally curly, so did I ever think about curling, crimping, or creating fake waves in my hair? The answer was “No” until I actually grew my hair out. I only starting thinking about creating different looks with my hair as I faced the inevitable challenge of making my unruly curls into something manageable. In my mind, I was like, “I already have curly hair, so why would I need to add more curls or waves into it?”
I have had short hair for 10+ years and I paid lots and lots of money to make it straight. I had Keratin treatments for a long time until my hair finally got fried by the process. So, this whole natural curly thing was new to me after having short and straight looks for such a long period of time.
I always wondered how celebs had really pretty perfect hair and now I know how! They had the help of some special hair tool friends called, “The Deep Waver.” There are many brands for the deep waver to choose from and I decided to go with Hot Tools. Probably the most popular choice would be Bed Head as it is the cheapest of the deep wavers, that I have seen. But, I have never really liked Bed Head hair products, as they did not quite work for me; so that is why I went with the brand I did.
What is a deep waver you ask? Well, just think of it as the 1980’s crimper of today!

What I love about this product is that it not only smoothes your hair, but really transforms it. I can now have control over my hair and manipulate it in a way I never really could before. I did not put any product in my hair when I used this tool. You can put hairspray in your hair first, to get an even stiffer wave, if you like. I like my hair more natural and I like it soft, so I opted not use any hair product before I waved. I do have a lot of hair and it is thick, so it does usually take me about 25 to 30 minutes to wave my hair. You can take small sections or large sections, depending on the look you want to achieve (short or wide waves). I usually let the deep waver heat up for 10-15 minutes before I use it. When I do use it, I count 20 seconds for the length of time I keep the waver on each section of hair. Also, I do not straighten my hair before using the waver; but you could straighten your hair with a flat iron first if you so choose. It all depends on what you are going for in your look. There are a lot of options for how you want the turn out to be. I bought my waver on Ebay (Buy Hot Tools Deep Waver) as the shipping is always free and I paid $41 for it. Totally worth the price :-).

NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic wash

0A05DD58-FA5F-422A-973D-0FF95C2A0EF7

So according to NeoStrata, this face wash is best used as part of an anti-aging regimen. Anti-aging is something important to me because even though I look younger than I am, I want to keep it that way for as long as possible.

Here is a product description and some claims (via NeoStrata):

NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash is a potent, pH-balanced facial cleanser formulated with 18% Glycolic Acid and 2% Lactobionic Acid to smooth skin texture, unclog congested pores and stimulate cell renewal. Recommended experience Glycolic Acid users, this soap-free face wash prepares skin for optimal benefits of the regimen that follows.

Product snapshot:
• High strength, 18% Glycolic Acid smooths skin texture and unclogs congested pores
• 2% Lactobionic Acid increases cell renewal
• Amphoteric system captures the benefits of Glycolic and Lactobionic Acid while minimizing the potential for irritation
• Soap-free, dye-free, and pH balanced; it’s built to rejuvenate your skin and enhance your anti-aging regimen

This face wash can be used twice a day, but I read several reviews from users saying they like using it best as a nighttime face wash, so that’s how I’ve been using it. I’ll wash my face with this after removing my makeup with a makeup wipe. Usage is really easy. You just get your face wet, pump two or three pumps of product into your hand (it turns to foam as you pump it out) and then apply to your wet face and wash your face like you normally would, then rinse with a washcloth and lukewarm water. Pretty simple.

How how does this face wash work on me? It does make my skin feel clean and it hasn’t broken me out in the week I’ve been using it (I don’t have really sensitive skin, but I’ll have the occasional bad reaction to something – I’m looking at you Urban Decay Primer Potion). My skin also feels smooth after washing my face with this product. So far… so good! I definitely plan to keep using this product and looking forward to seeing what the long-term use results are.

This face wash is a little on the spendy side at $40, but if you’re in the market for something along these lines, definitely check this one out. You can purchase this face wash on the NeoStrata website. Plus if you use Ebates, you can currently get 7.5% cash back on your purchase on their site! If you’re not currently signed up with Ebates, click on my referral link in the sidebar to sign up and once you make you first purchase, you’ll get $10!

Ok that should do it for today! Have you tried this face wash? How did it work for you? Let me know below in the comments.

Surya Brasil Nail polish & Lip tints

93D935B0-15B3-457D-83A0-B2BE85632801

850A01C2-0086-4A94-A820-6FF6BAE36091

Fall is here and some cool colors come with it, from the various colors of the leaves to even those new colors of nail polish for the Fall season. I have noticed right along with you and I have come across a brand that had a great idea and that was to come out with exotic animal nail polishes. Inspired by nature’s vibrant colors and there are 16 of them so you are bound to find some you like.

Surya Brasil is the brand that I want to introduce to you. I do not often do my nails unless it is for a special occasion or something because usually the polish comes off too quick, but I found that with all of the washing of my hands and washing my hair that Surya Brasil’s polish lasted longer than the ones I am use to and on top of it the brand is also 7 Free.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I did not know what it meant either, but apparently there a lot of horrible things found in nail polish usually so Surya Brasil does not include:

NO Camphor
NO DBP
NO Formaldehyde
NO Parabens
NO Toluene
NO ingredients of animal origin
NO animal testing

Surya Brasil will cause me to pamper myself more often knowing that the polishes last longer on my nails and because it does not have those harmful ingredients. Have you checked out the wood caps and the lovely animal illustrations on each bottle. How detailed is this!!

97C2ACB3-720A-43D4-B342-3384BBA54E2B

Surya Brasil is a vegan, cruelty-free company that creates beauty products inspired by the Amazonian Rainforest! Their Exotic Animals Nail Polishes and Vegan Tinted Lip Balms are perfect for any beauty lover.

*Disclaimer: These products were sent to See, Shop, Love! in exchange for an honest review.

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I only use natural lip balms. Their ingredients are so much better at moisturizing for the long term than other synthetic brands. These ones are vegan and kosher and made with 100% natural ingredients. They’re also certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny and PETA!

I received four beautiful shades to try: Sugared Fig, Coconut Nectar, Pink Grapefruit, and Vanilla Dragon Fruit. All of them leave a light tint on the lips, nothing overpowering. My favorite is the Vanilla Dragon Fruit. They all also have a delicious vanilla scent.

Swatched from left to right are Sugared Fig, Pink Grapefruit, Vanilla Dragon Fruit, and Coconut Nectar. Unfortunately the Coconut Nectar was very close to my natural skin tone so it doesn’t show up as well in this photo, but you can kind of see the shimmer still.

Novashine

681888DD-AD28-403F-9B0B-6C690540339D

What’s one thing that you always felt self conscious about? For me, it is my smile. In my younger years, my front teeth were crooked. So, in middle school I had to get braces. When I finally got them off, I loved how straight my smile was, but i felt like it was too yellow.

9DCF0F1E-7034-4C7F-B640-D6C0F9DB314A

I remember that I was so excited because, for taking good care of my teeth and doing well in school, my parents let me get my teeth whitened at the dentist. Ever since I have tried my best to keep my teeth sparkling white. However, I am now a daily coffee drinker with an occasional coke thrown in. Needless to say, keeping the staining at bay can be a struggle.

 

That’s where NovaShine comes in. When they first contacted me about trying their product, I was super excited. Whitening your teeth can get expensive pretty quick. Because of that, at home whitening is a great option. In the past, I have always been a little weary of whitening my teeth myself. But, I figured that this would be the perfect product to try.

BD2E555D-96C9-4289-ABBA-5C6A5E1B9B13

“Novashine™ Teeth Whitening Kit comes with everything you need to restore your natural bright smile. The professional teeth whitening system is specially formulated to whiten teeth quickly, effectively, and without causing major tooth sensitivity. The system’s peroxide based gel removes tooth discoloration caused by stain-causing food and beverages, as well as tobacco products.”

5E9D8EDF-D662-4680-8F8A-C5F7B6D0BBFD

With every kit you receive 10 mL of whitening gel, a mouthpiece, micro-USB adapter, as well as instructions and a whitening guide. They instructions in the box are not the clearest, but there are more in depth instructions on their website. Luckily the product is also fairly easy to use.

Before whitening, make sure to brush and floss your teeth. Next, place a layer of the whitening gel on the upper and lower walls of the mouthpiece. Just make sure to apply to the walls and not the part you bite down on. Then, you just place the mouthpiece between your teeth and bite down lightly to hold in place. Plug the mouthpiece into your phone or other usb device to turn it on. Keep the mouthpiece in for 10 to 30 minutes.

It is important to note, if you feel any sensitivity after whitening, to wait a few days before another session and to do it for less time. According the the NovaShine site, you can use this product daily as long as no sensitivity occurs

JJ Young Pore care Philosphy

800E6210-221B-4817-936B-CC3B084A36E6.jpeg

The Pore Steam Mask ($14.99; cvs.com) ad Pore Bubble Mask ($16.99; cvs.com) are two face masks I’ve recently tried from JJ Young by Caolion. Its a brand new to me and I’d have to say that I really like what I’ve tried so far. The Pore Steam Mask is like a clay mask that helps with clearing out all the gunk from your pores. It dries fairly soon and I did feel like it pulls out a lot from pores and isn’t too drying. It does leave skin feeling super bright, very matte and clean. The Pore Bubble Mask is a fun mask that is like a quick and easy exfoliator. Its a bubble mask that woks like a scrub/mask in one and polishes skin really well. I loved this one more for my skin type. Overall, definitely worth trying out if you are on the lookout for a deep cleansing physical exfoliator/mask and great the price.
