Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel

Okay, so many women hate to shave their legs. (Can I get an amen?)

I hate to admit this, but I can honestly sometimes go a couple of weeks in the winter months without shaving since I’m always wearing pants anyway and there are times when I just don’t feel like it…

Throughout the rest of the year, especially during summer, when I’m constantly wearing shorts and dresses, I can’t do that. But have you ever been in a hurry getting ready, then you notice that you have stubble on your legs but you just don’t have time to hop in the shower? It can make things complicated trying to shave on-the-spot when you need to.

Enter Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel!

I was so excited when I was asked to review this product because it seems like such a great idea. It’s great for shaving on-the-go, when you don’t have the time, when you might just be feeling lazy, or whatever the situation may be. It’s even in a convenient TSA-approved size so you can take it with you when you travel.

With Busy Beauty, you can literally shave anytime, anywhere – and you don’t need water. You can shave at work, in your car, in an airplane bathroom, at the gym, or wherever you feel the need to. Pretty awesome if you ask me!

I tried this stuff out today and honestly? I love it. I already plan on buying more. Not only is it super easy to use, but it also leaves your legs feeling so soft and smooth. Plus, I love the gel consistency. You just apply the gel, shave as you normally would with a razor, then apply more as a post-shave moisturizer. Hair collects in the back of the razor to throw away when you’re ready.

Another great thing about it: it’s environmentally friendly, which I love. First of all, you don’t need to use water while you’re shaving with it. It’s also 100% vegan, cruelty-free, paraben-free, and alcohol-free. It contains the natural essential oils of eucalyptus, tea tree, clove, ginger, and oat.

This stuff is great for your skin – even for sensitive skin. I have pretty sensitive skin and this shave gel doesn’t irritate it at all. The gel also prevents razor burn and ingrown hairs.

So overall, I loved this stuff! It seriously left my legs feeling super smooth with no razor burn or irritation. It’s very soothing and moisturizing since you rub the excess gel into your skin when you’re done as an after-shave moisturizer. It’s also so fast, convenient and easy to use. So yes, Busy Beauty Showerless Shave Gel is amazing. You can purchase it here!

8 Tips for Giving Your Hair More Volume

If getting big, beautiful, voluminous hair is difficult for you, check out this post full of my 8 best tips for giving your hair more volume!

Getting big, beautiful, voluminous hair is kind of difficult for me. My hair is actually decently thick, but it usually just lays flat on my head and it’s hard for me to give it body.

I know all about trying to add volume to flat hair. Sometimes things work for me and sometimes they don’t.

But in case you’re in the same boat as me, I thought I’d share 8 ways that I add volume to my hair!

If getting big, beautiful, voluminous hair is difficult for you, check out this post full of my 8 best tips for giving your hair more volume!


1. Use a volumizing shampoo.

If you want more volume in your hair, use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I don’t normally use conditioner so if you don’t need it then, of course, skip it, but at least use a volumizing shampoo.


2. Use a mousse.

While my hair is still wet, fresh out of the shower, I apply a mousse. I apply it to my hair and then use a blow dryer to my roots and dry it.


3. Go easy on the products.

I really don’t use very many hair products all that often, but I definitely don’t add a bunch to my hair at one time. I go easy on them because they just weigh my hair down more.


4. Clip it up while drying.

If you don’t like to use a hair dryer on your hair, then get jaw clips and put it up in a high pouf to let it air dry. This lifts your roots and adds body to them.


5. Curl your hair.

Curling my hair adds lots of extra body. I recently received the HSI Professional Glider Ceramic Flat Iron and honestly, it is THE best straightener that I’ve ever used. I don’t just use it for straightening my hair though – I use it for curling too!

This straightener has high-quality ceramic plates that use 8 “HeatBalance®” micro-sensors that distribute heat evenly so you don’t need to run your hair through it so many times. It also protects your precious hair from overheating and frizzing, so your hair stays silky smooth.

It’s important to make sure that you’re taking extra steps to protect your hair from heat, though. I recommend HSI’s Argan Oil Heat Protectant. It’s color safe, cruelty-free, and works on natural hair and extensions.

I also received a free sample of their Argan Oil Smoothing Conditioner (which comes with the purchase of their straightener) and I love it too! It leaves my hair feeling so smooth and healthy. I can’t wait to order more!


6. Use a sea salt spray.

A great way to add texture and volume is to spray a sea salt spray into your hair and then scrunch your hair with your fingers without brushing it. This will give your hair an nice look too.


7. Use a dry shampoo.

Dry shampoos are great for adding volume to dirty hair, but they can also add volume to clean hair too. Sometimes I use them after I blow-dry my hair.


8. Switch your part.

Sometimes I switch my part to the other side and it’s the easiest way to add a good amount of instant volume.

The Amazing Beauty Benefits of Everyday Exercise

This post was written by Ida from fitnessgrit.com.

We know so many of the physical and health benefits of exercise, but here are some of the beauty benefits of everyday exercise!

The trend is shifting from using beauty products to regular gaming and exercise in the gym in order to achieve everlasting beauty benefits and results. Most of us join or visit the gym to keep pace with balanced physical health and use the latest machines such as power tower to lose weight and to whip our muscles into shape.

Gyms are often restricted and centered on the physical benefits which actually isn’t all that they can do for us, as the role and the training offered by gyms are worth acknowledging for beauty benefits too. Science has become more focused on studying the physical benefits of exercise, leaving less room to study its mental benefits that are responsible for an overall refurbishing of the body both internally and externally that is visible to the eye.

Still lacking the motivation to gear up for gym or exercise after hectic office routine? This article could give you an insight into just a few of the ways in which regular exercise can add an element of charm and glamor to your personality and make you look younger and more fabulous. When people ask you the secret behind your everlasting beauty just let them know its regular exercise!

We know so many of the physical and health benefits of exercise, but here are some of the beauty benefits of everyday exercise!
1. Glowing and radiant skin – the dream of every one of us:

To achieve glowing and radiant skin, most women and men prefer to get regular facials, but the results are temporary. When it comes to regular exercise, it can do wonders for you and your skin. Acne and pimples have been haunting most of us but don’t worry, we’ve got an easy cure for you in the form of regular exercise! Let me tell you another secret that might save your time and cost: the outcome of exercise sweat acts on your dead skin and gives it a mini facial. Moreover, stretching exercises ease the flow of nutrients to the skin which enhances and increases the working ability of fibroblast (that might have been suppressed because of aging) and give it an energy boost to work more efficiently and make you look younger than your age.


2. Good posture:

Your posture is one of the determining factors of true beauty. Practices like yoga and regular exercise can not only work as excellent tools to help you lower your stress levels, but also enhance your body posture by giving it a lift that makes you look taller. Orthopedic surgeons have said that hunching not only destroys your body posture but also results in compression and contraction of muscles that negatively affect our height. Regular exercise can aid in bringing the dislocated muscles to their point of balance. As a result, your posture will improve, and you will look taller.


3. Strong immunity and regular detoxification:

Have you ever wanted to get rid of medication and are in search of a supplement that can help you achieve balanced health? If yes, then regular exercise is the best option for you. It can give a tough time to bacteria and germ cells and eventually destroy them with if you’re consistent about working out. Research conducted to identify the benefits of regular exercise revealed that taking a regular walk of at least forty-five minutes a day can improve your performance graph by causing a considerable reduction in your absentees because of illness. Lastly, it improves the detoxification process by boosting the lymphatic system. Contraction of muscles during exercise squeeze the lymph nodes, thereby cleaning them of all the waste. As a result, you look refreshed and rejuvenated.


4. Burn visceral fat:

Visceral fat can prove to be a basic threat to your health as it gives way to diabetes, dementia and different types of cancer. It can also damage our hair and skin that destroys our external features. What is the impact of regular exercise on our body functioning? That question is addressed by an exercise specialist, and the answer is regular exercise increases the production of mitochondria, the energy cells of the body that produce enzymes which effectively deal with the accumulation of visceral fat in the body and breaks them down.


5. Sound and peaceful sleep – get rid of dark circles:

Insomnia is another threatening challenge to deal with in the 21st century. But regular exercise can help you improve your sleeping patterns and control the high levels of the stress hormone cortisol which is linked to improper sleep. Proper sleep makes you look fresh and healthy. Chronic high-stress can mess with the cortisol level in your blood stream. As a result, the natural rhythm of cortisol is disturbed which can cause your eyes to become puffy and can cause dark circles to appear around your eyes.
