I Love When Science Meets Beauty

Go to great lengths with Brush-on Fiber Extensions

Fiberwig (who was the first brand to release a Lash-Lengthening Mascara , remember the original "Imuju Fiberwig" ??) has done it again with the Fiberwig LX ($24/ Sephora) , which was released this past August. This Mascara is the answer to long lashes without the use of false lash application , which tends to look blatantly artificial.

Fiberwig LX's unique fiber enriched film coating formula lengthens while conditioning lashes. The formula contains conditioning oils with panthenol, natural silk and botanical extracts that work to maintain healthy and resilient lashes. The crescent shaped brush conforms to each and every lash, even those hard to reach corners and the tiniest of lashes, not to mention the lower lashes. Generous amounts of fibers perfectly encapsulate lashes from root to tip, extending lashes to eyebrow reaching lengths. There is no smudging or "racoon eyes" with this mascara , because of its amazing stay-put lasting power. At the end of your night/day it removes easily with warm water - I've had other lash lengthening mascaras that took days to completely wash away the fact that this washes away easily is a plus.

Tips to achieving "Dramatic Lengths" with Fiberwig LX

  • Place the concave side of the brush at the root of lashes
  • Sweep upwards by wiggling the brush from root to tip in order to "film-coat" each lash
  • Use fibers on the tip of the brush and apply these fibers to the tips of your lashes repeatedly until lashes reach the desired length
  • In order to lengthen upper and lower lashes at hard-to-reach corners, hold the brush vertically and use the tip to add fibers
  • For lower lashes, use the protruding side of the brush by wiggling it from side to side

Another great tip for Long-Lasting Curling :

Use an eyelash curler only at the base of lashes AFTER the formula completely dries because the lashes encapsulated within the film-coating formula become more resilient.
The film-coating formula is quick-drying, so there’s no need to worry about residue on the eyelash curler.

Turn back the clock on your skin with this moisturizer

In July , I was able to attend an amazing webinar for the GoodSkin Labs EXTEN-10 Instant Youth Boosting Moisturizer ($39.50 / Kohls Stores) featuring Global Dermatologist Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank. Not only was it very informative, but Dr. Frank along with Julie and Shaunda of GoodSkin Labs answered most of our questions, and also previewed the new diagnostic tool which customers can use to figure out which GoodSkin Lab product is best for their skin dilemma. I was also given a sample of this moisturizer to try out as well, and you feel the difference in your skin instantly. This moisturizer promises that you look 10 years younger after 4 weeks of application - ( luckily enough for me, but I already look about 10yrs younger than my age so it just maintained my youthful look). Exten-10 unlocks skin's natural regenerative potential with three new youth-prompting discoveries.

1. HA Brightening Blend. An advanced combination of skin's ultimate hydrator, hyaluronic acid, with brightening technology instantly and measurably helps restore youthful vibrancy to dull, aging skin.

2. Sirtuin Power Complex. Supports skin's natural stimulation of proteins, boosting its ability to reduce the look of lines and wrinkles with impressive results. Also helps skin resist daily, aging stresses to prevent future damage.

3. Triple Sunscreen Technology. Of course, the scientists at GoodSkin Labs didn't forget about the #1 cause of aging: sun exposure. Exten-10 includes a unique broad spectrum SPF 15 complex to keep skin protected from UVA/UVB damage all day long.
