Sibu SKin Cleanser and Seed Oil

Seed Oil (top left)

I love just about every kind of beauty product, but I really adore those that are natural and organic. I always try to find products that are not only good for the planet and good for my skin, but that make my skin look good. Because many times, good for you products still don't make you look your best. Recently I tried a product that is both. Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil from Sibu Beauty
is a wonderful product.

You only need a very small amount and it makes your skin feel soft, smooth and nourished. I brightens your skin tone and helps to reduce acne, rosacea and eczema. It also helps to diminish wrinkles. Even more amazing, this oil also works to treat burns and wounds. I would buy this for that alone. I burn myself semi often and it is awful. Burns are one of the worst pains on the planet.

All of these benefits make for one awesome universal product, but the price makes this even sweeter. I never skimp on cost to get the best for my skin, but when I find something great that is also affordable, it really makes my day.



Cleanser (top left)

This is a brand that has grown to include internal supplement products and a full range of topical skincare products specially targeted for problematic skin. The brand is sold both online as well as in various stores in both the US and Canada. The key ingredient in this skincare line is the sea buckthorn plant which is said to host an abundance of beneficial properties.

On the website, this cleanser is deep and gentle, effective for every age. In addition to its antibacterial properties, it gently removes dirt, impurities and make-up while maintaining a healthy balance to your skin without stripping it of its natural properties. This is also said to keep your face fresh, clean and perfectly balanced. 

Thoughts:
Love this product! This one has a very subtle citrus scent to it and contains very small exfoliating particles. This product thoroughly cleansed my skin and left it feeling very hydrated, light and refreshed. My face did not feel stripped afterwards and was perfect for the hot summer months - cleaning the oil, clogged pores etc. I liked the product enough to possibly repurchase it again in the future, however as a beauty blogger (I have mentioned this before), I always want to try out new products and brands in skincare. 

Thank you for reading

Boutique & Beauty Bar




https://madonnaandco.com/


Boutique & Beauty Bar: Recipe for a Unique Shopping Experience

There’s always a risk when you create something new. Will people like it? Will it succeed? Will it be worth it?

When Madonna and Co. re-launched in Mid-town East Side, (bordering on the Upper-East Side) from our former location in Soho, we emerged as a different entity, incorporating what made us great in the past, but with new additions. We were more.

In addition to our new location on 60th street, we opened a full service salon and beauty bar within the store, bringing to a life a completely unique shopping experience.

Fashion and Beauty: An Innovative Convergence

The inclusion of the beauty bar inside our boutique converged the worlds of fashion and beauty in a way that’s never been done. For the first time, women have the opportunity to receive comprehensive beautification in a one-stop shop.

Bringing together fashion and beauty as we have done was not without risk, but innovation always involves a leap of faith. New creations don’t arise from the ether. Innovation comes as the result of unique combinations, whether it be a boutique and a beauty bar, our designs and exclusive designer capsule collections, or glam and chic, etc. Creating one-of-a-kind experiences from unique combinations is what Madonna & Co. has always done.

Our willingness to break barriers and defy categorization is what makes our selection of fashion and accessories so vibrant and original. All of the clothing in our store has been designed and hand picked from collections around the world. By dealing with the designer themselves and direct with our factories, we are able to offer luxury items at affordable prices.

The vast selection of unique affordable clothing featured in our shop is what makes us the best NYC boutique operating today. By shopping at Madonna & Co., you receive the peace of mind in knowing that you’ll never cross paths with someone wearing the same outfit; one-of-a-kind, wearable and affordable clothes for independent woman is what we do.

Community of Independent Women

While the ability to get a full-service haircut, styling, and complete makeup treatment in the same place where you find all of your exclusive designs and luxury clothing is extremely convenient, the impetus behind opening the beauty bar had more to do with community than convenience.

We wanted to create a space where independent women from all walks of life and ages could come together to shop, socialize, and express their femininity. We imagined a world where the social aspects of a salon coalesced with the activity of shopping. Our love of fashion and beauty led us to invent a world that unites these spheres and offers women a place to have fun and engage in a dialogue about fashion and style.

At Madonna & Co. we believe in creating a personal style. We see it as our job to assist women in crafting their own individual aesthetic. Every woman that walks through our doors is a unique assemblage of beliefs, values, and traits. Her aesthetic preferences are a function of her entire worldview and identity.

Creating the perfect outfit involves a translation of sorts. Our aim is to help the women who shops in our store translate their core identity into an aesthetic that embodies and represents who they really are and how they feel. Every woman who comes into our store receives a unique treatment that results in a unique style – whether her preferences lean towards glam, chic, posh, or edgy.

The beauty bar allows us to take the crafting of a unique style one step further. In addition to helping women find their dream new fashions, our stylists bring years of experience and knowledge to the table, assisting women realize their dream hairstyle!

We offer every customer a free consultation at the salon and beauty bar before her first appointment. This consultation gives us the chance to learn about what the specific customer likes about her hair or makeup styling and what she’d like to change. Our stylists and make-up artists will then present some possible ways to enhance the aspects of her appearance that the customer would like to shake up.

While our head stylist is an expert in all types of hair, her specialty is curly hair and we call her "The Curly Hair Expert." Our custom line of No Frizz Miracle Gel – designed specifically for curly hair – mirrors this focus.















Come Join our Community

What are you waiting for? Come join in on the fun! Today’s the perfect day to unleash the beauty within you and find that perfect outfit you’ve been longing for.

Booking an appointment at the salon and beauty bar can be done either by phone or via styleseat.com or on our new on-line store www.MadonnaAndCo.com, for your convenience.

We also provide off-site makeup & hair services as well and can help you plan the perfect party or host all kinds of events in our luxurious boutique, including bridal/baby showers, fashion product launches, etc.

So come on down today and introduce yourself!

Monat Hair Products


MONAT is naturally-based, gluten free, sustainable and cruelty free.   We use only the finest and safest ingredients.   MONAT products do not contain Parabens, Sulfates, DEA/MEA, Phthalates, PEG, Harsh Salt Systems, Silicones, Harmful colors, or Harmful fragrances.  Our Treatment Systems provide powerful, clinical results that address the effects of the environment, chemicals, product overuse and — most importantly — hair thinning, hair loss and aging.

**I only received  small samples, not actual bottle sizes of these products and my opinion is my honest opinion** so I tried it once. 

I tried the RENEW shampoo. I instantly loved the scent, but I was really impressed with the rich, creamy lather. It felt very luxurious and rinsed very clean. What I liked was that after I rinsed, my hair didn't feel straw-like as it typically does after shampooing and before conditioning. It felt clean and smooth and moisturized.

Apprehensively, upon exit of the shower and gently towel blotting my hair, I applied a dime to nickel size amount of the leave-in conditioner you see here:
It instantly absorbed into my hair, it left my hair with so much volume and body.

This is a prime example of high-quality products doing exactly what they say they will.


Rejuvenique Intensive Oil

I love how this oil just sinks into the skin. I have used it on my face for my dry skin and on my hair too. My hair is damaged from coloring so it does need some love. It can also be used after shampooing as a conditioning treatment. Apply to damp hair, then place a towel over hair. Leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse. Hair will be shiny and soft. Style as usual. Use as an anti-frizz treatment too, just apply a small amount to damp hair and work throughout hair. Style as usual. For skin, apply on skin after cleansing and let sink in prior to moisturizer. Can also be used on any area of skin that need extra moisture, such as elbows, knees or feet. 

Otherwise, I adore it. I used it twice and I look forward to seeing how it works long-term! I am growing my hair out, and I think this will help so much in keeping it manageable so I don't wind up whacking it off.
The price is definitely expensive for someone on a budget. However, if you can afford it, or are looking for a good splurge, I would highly recommend giving it a try!


What are your favorite hair products? Let me know!



How it works:
    •Protects skin and hair from damaging environmental influence
    •Helps naturally replenish sebum (the skin and scalp’s natural oils)
    •Alleviates dehydration caused by harsh cleaners and styling products
    •Replenishes the hair and skin by absorbing quickly and completely
    •Delivers significant shine, strength and manageability
Ingredients:

Abyssinian: The Key ingredient in Rejuveniqe Oil Intensive. From the crambe abyssinica plant native to central Africa, it’s a rare and unique combination of fatty acids prized for their ability to do everything from mimic the effects of silicon for unbeatable shine; lubricate the hair deep into the follicle; and protect and coat each strand.

Baobab: The renowned baobab trees have grown for centuries in the arid climates of India and Africa, and its exotic oil from the tree’s seeds are rich in antioxidant-rich palmitic acid and Vitamin F.

Buriti: The fruit of Africa’s Moriche palm – known as the Tree of Life – is one of the world’s richest sources of beta-carotene, which moisturizes and nourishes.

Camelia: Also known as tea-seed oil, it’s ultra-hydrating oil responsibly harvested from China that cleans the scalp and pampered dry stands thanks to its abundance of Vitamin E and polyphenols.

Carrot Seed: Specially sourced from the mountains of Switzerland, it’s rich in Vitamin A to condition the scalp, plus Alpha Linolenic Acid for anti-inflammatory protection.

Monoi: Selectively sourced from the warm tropics of Tahiti, it’s a restorative oil rich in Omega 3 and fatty acids to heal damage and promote growth from the root.

Meadowfoam: This oil is sourced right from the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Named for its flowers’ resemblance to white foam on the ocean, meadowfoam oil is another outstanding source of Omega 9 fatty acids for shine and sheen.

Moringa: Ancient Egyptians prized Moringa Oil for its nourishing properties, thanks to antioxidants and Vitamin E, which help combat skin fatigue, plus clean and purify the scalp.

PRO T.L.S. Mascara, Gel Liner and Brush by Studio Gear Cosmetics


My Review: 
I love the thickness of the mascara and leaves my lashes without looking clumpy. I love that it really makes my lashes appear to be fake. I did not have any issue with transfer onto my lids. The consistency isn't really wet so you can use it right away without having to let it sit out with the lid off like some mascaras. I think this mascara is amazing and worth every penny!






This is the most beautiful shade, it is everything I was hoping it would be. I have been using it on my water line, as a base and smoking it out.  It has great lasting power, and has quickly became one of my favorite liners. When used as a base I had no problems with it creasing. It is not black as you can see it is more of an earth tone. I love it so much I have been wearing it everyday.

Be sure to check them out on all their social media websites!

Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque


Every day, skin is exposed to the damaging effects of the environment—pollution, UV exposure, extremes of temperature and humidity. Now you can help sleep away the day's damage and wake to beautiful, revitalized skin. This unique water-gel masque melts into skin, working while you sleep to attack the damage from everyday factors that can age your skin. A potent Anti-Pollution Complex, including antioxidant Lilac Cell Culture Extract and PHA/Bionics, helps neutralize the effects of daily pollution and environmental damage such as free radicals and harmful metals, that can break down collagen and prematurely age the look of skin. Overnight, Prodew® refills deep reserves of natural skin moisture known as NMF (Natural Moisturizing Factor), restoring a feeling of suppleness and comfort. PHA/Bionics and Evening Primrose Oil strengthen skin's protective barrier for a stronger, more resilient tomorrow. Awake to beautiful skin with the damage behind you, deeply hydrated and stronger.

Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque Features and Benefits:
  • Hydrates skin.
  • Smoothes skin texture.
  • Restores skin while you sleep.
How To Use Exuviance Overnight Recovery Masque:
After cleansing, smooth across the face and neck, massaging very lightly to allow masque to melt into the skin. Wait 5 minutes as powerful ingredients absorb. To seal in the benefits of the masque, follow with your usual nighttime moisturizer. Leave on overnight. Rinse in the morning and follow with regular morning skincare routine.

My opinion:

This was by far, one of my favorite masks. The texture is perfect, a thick creamy white paste which is so easy to apply to the face and easy still to remove.
This mask have left my skin feeling refreshed, soft, hydrated but more importantly, looking healthy!
I can’t express how much I love this mask. I’m most definitely buying this again.
The smell is amazing, the packaging is amazing, and for once, the results are amazing.
A million thumbs up!

Experience ultimate moisture with Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion powered by Hydro Balance. The advanced dual phase formula enhanced with ceramides and hyaluronic acid delivers instant hydration and creates an invisible barrier to stop moisture loss while encapsulated actives penetrate deeply for 24 hours of hydration. The result is noticeably softer, beautifully balanced healthy skin.

Instructions: Apply liberally as often as needed.




My Personal Opinion:

Absorption
VERY good at absorbing into the skin. The product doesn't take any time at all to rub in and doesn't leave any greasy feeling whatsoever. It's perfect for absorption.


Effectiveness
WOW does my skin feel soft after applying this! It's really awesome at moisturizing dry skin. No greasy feeling or any funny feeling afterward either.

I totally love this line. It is really light weight. If you like that feel on lotions then this is the right line for you. I keep the cleanser in my shower and I use it every morning and night for my face wash. Awesome price as well. You will love it.

Bye Bye Makeup 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm



Bye Bye Makeup Balm has been a godsend to me, I have not used any other make up remover since May 2016. Finding a good makeup remover can be a bit tricky. Now days there are so many options to choose from that figuring out what to try can be a bit overwhelming. Bye Bye Makeup is not only a makeup remover and cleanser, but also an anti-aging serum! I had never used a makeup removing “balm” before this. Something about the thick, rich texture with a soft citrus scent gave me the impression that it was really for those with drier skin types. It is full of skin loving ingredients including collagen, peptides and antioxidants. Bye Bye Makeup is designed for all skin types.

You only need only about a large pea-sized amount for your whole face because it spreads out beautifully. Upon first look, you’ll notice that this stuff looks solid. It’s not…not exactly. It reminds me of coconut oil in that it’s kind of a soft semi-solid until it comes in contact with your skin. It then melts into the skin and starts dissolving the makeup.
Massaging the product into the skin, I was surprised at the complete lack of oily or greasy sensation. Yes, it feels hydrating, but not oily or greasy. As you work the balm into the Bye Bye Makeup, you will 100% see the makeup dissolving off of your face. I basically massage until I feel the makeup is fully loose – and then I wipe it all away. I think you’ll find Bye Bye Makeup leaves your skin feeling soft, supple, hydrated and clean! Totally an amazing product.

Bye Bye Makeup retails for $38 for a 2.82oz/80g tub. So well worth it and all you need is a little bit of product.

What is your favorite makeup remover product? Let me know below and Thank You for reading xoxo

Makeup Look using Eylure Lashes


I am obsessed and in love with Eylure Lashes. They will help transform your lashes giving you that extra bit of length and thickness that you desire. Easy to apply, safe and hygienic, Eylure Lashes enhance the natural beauty of your eyes without the fuss of mascara! They are just gorgeous and add plenty length and volume to my not so great lashes. I love how they flare out at the ends and they are comfortable  to wear even in the day. I also want to mention it comes with diamonds on them. How fabulous is that? I don't know how you couldn't fall in love with these! Adhesive and application instructions are included with every package. If you are new in using them at first do not be discourage. Keep trying because these are easy to put on.

"This is a great lash for anyone who wants to try false lashes for the first time.

My Daily Skin Care Step Routine

I always been obsessed with my skin. So there's no other way for me than to invest I good product to take care of my skin. At the end of the day is the only one I get to have so why not take care of it.


Here's a list in the exact order that I use them! I use many different products all the time. I will post here my go to products so you can have an idea of what I use but my routine is always the same.

Cleanser - I wash with half a pump of this then pat my face dry.

Face Moisturizer - I put two pumps of this all over my face and neck.

CC+ - I use a little on my red spots on my face.

Eyebrow pencil - I lightly line the bottom of my eyebrows with this pencil then brush and shape them. I wear the shade dark brown.

With this routine I can leave the house only wearing the CC + and of course my eyebrows done. Now I only wear more makeup if I want to get dolled up, not out of necessity!


Night Time Facial Care:

Cleanser - I wash with half a pump of this then pat my face dry.

Eye serum - I split a pea size of this serum on both eyes, patting it lightly under and around my eyes.

Face Serum - I apply all over my face and neck in an upward motion

I use deep cleansing mask once a week.
