Get Your Skin Back on Track With Exuviance AGE REVERSE Hand Rejuvenator

How about a power peel... for hands! Target signs of aging on hands - crepiness, loose skin, and dark spots - with a 10% Citric Acid Peel and anti-aging hand cream.

Hands are often neglected when it comes to our skin care routines. I, myself, am guilty of this, as my hands look more aged than my face. I’m a hairstylist and my hands are under water most of my days so these things take their toll.

Before bed, apply Hand Rejuvenator Peel to back of clean hands with a cotton pad or ball:
  1. Press cotton to the top of the bottle to release the peel fluid
  2. Smooth onto the back of hands, applying 2-3 layers
  3. Allow the peel to absorb fully for about 1 minute
  4. Follow immediately with a generous application of the Hand Rejuvenator Cream, focusing on the back of hands, and extending to fingers if desired. Cotton gloves can be worn over the cream if desired
  5. In the morning, apply the Hand Rejuvenator Cream to the back of hands and allow at least one hour before washing hands
Sunburn Alert: This product contains an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that may increase your skin's sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing, and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards.

My Opinion:

After wearing this formula on my hands I was super impressed.  Doing hair for so many years really dried out my hands so I am so happy I found this Hand Peel. I recommend this strongly.

Brumisateur Facial Spray by Evian

For those who haven't used facial mists before, they are a good way to quickly rehydrate your parched skin, feel fresh when you wake up in the morning or can be used to set makeup at the end of applying your look. I do like using facial mists in general though because my skin is very dry. This is a great way to quickly feel refreshed and moisturized before the moisturizer.

How to use it:

To refresh your skin after a long day from working out at the gym, or dealing with stress from work, it just takes is a light mist. Softly press down the button to spray once while holding the bottle about 10 inches away from the face. Once the mist sits on the skin, you only have to wait a few seconds for the Evian Facial Spray to absorb into the skin.

To use it as an asset to any makeup routine, a light mist will help set your makeup to have a smoother and lasting finish. After applying makeup, hold the canister 9-12 inches from the face, and lightly mist in a circular motion right over makeup. This helps makeup blend with the skin to give it a more natural look while bringing out more color.

A favorite trick among makeup artists, using the Evian Facial Spray to lightly moisten makeup brushes prior to makeup application can give more precise application and blending. For areas of face makeup that accidently applies to thick, you can lightly mist a brush to dilute makeup as well.

My personal opinion:

I find myself using facial mists the most before my moisturizer, leaving it looking dewy and supple. I love it and I recommend to everyone to try it. I also use it on my clients makeup application. This was not sticky before drying. There is no scent and no shimmer sparkles in this formula. The facial spray comes out crystal clear like water. It dries quickly which is awesome.

Find out more information visith their website  http://www.evianspray.com

Do you use facial sprays/mists to help set your makeup or to rehydrate your skin?

Nimni Cream by Hydropeptide

Harness the revolutionary power of Dr. Marcel Nimni’s collagen research with this intensive cream that delivers proven age-reversal results. Skin glows with improved fullness and elasticity and fine lines and wrinkles disappear. This exclusive formula uses time-released retinol for the ultimate rejuvenation of aging skin. Along with a patented amino acid complex, this incredible formulation helps skin produce collagen once again for a look that continues to defy age over time.

  • Ideal for skin with deep wrinkles or lost facial volume
  • Formulated with exclusive Nimni™ Technology
  • Improves skin’s fullness and elasticity
  • Reveals younger-looking skin through optimized collagen production
  • Time-released retinol formula rejuvenates for beautiful, younger skin
  • not for sensitive skin
  • This extra rich, intensely hydrating night cream replenishes anti-aging moisture to skin while you sleep. Which is the best time to do so, because that is when the skin is working its hardest with skincare ingredients. During the day it fights off environmental pollutants.
How to use: Apply a small amount to a clean face and neck at night. Carefully avoid the eyes and the corner of the eyes. Begin use twice a week and then increase frequency as tolerated.

Do not use retinol products if you are pregnant or nursing, taking prescription acne medication, or in conjunction with waxing, chemical peels or resurfacing procedures. Always use a high, broad spectrum sunscreen when using this product.

My Opinion: After trying for weeks I am absolutely delighted, I feel radiant when I wake up! Although I need to use this longer to actually see results like anything else out there, I had the privilege to use many other products from this brand and I couldn't be more satisfied.

What is your favorite night cream?

Derma Matrix and Hyaluronic Acid Liquid by Neocell

I am constantly reminded that I am not getting any younger, so any product that I can use to try and slow down the aging process, I am all game. Especially anything that has collagen in it.

With advanced ingredients designed to internally nourish the skin, Derma Matrix’s and Hyaluronic Acid formula uses BioActive NeoCell Collagen which is created through a propriety micronization process.  The product dissolves instantly in water. I mix it with my daily fruit smoothie and is standardized for maximum absorption and efficacy. This product helps to promote reduction of lines and wrinkles, increases hydration by 21%+ and supports cell turnover & elasticity.  After taking this product for a month, I noticed that my skin feels moisturized and hydrated.  During the Winter months – this is key since my skin is very dry and needs the added moisture.

I’m quite impressed with this product and I love that it is so easy to take. NeoCell offers such awesome products for supplements and I have been liking this one.  It doesn’t really have much of a flavor so mixing it with juice or your favorite smoothie will result in no flavor or taste you don’t like. They also have amazing snack you can take in your purse and have it on the run.  

For more information please visit their website: http://www.neocell.com

If you are using any product that has collagen please let me know below. I would love to try them. Thank you for reading! See you soon.

Devacurl Hair Products for Curly Hair

Laying off of the heat when it comes to styling my hair is probably one of the best decisions I have made so far.  I loved wearing my hair straight, but the health and quality of my hair was paying the price. Revitalizing the curls you were born with is a process but well worth taking care of your hair. Transitioning can take a little bit of work, since all those years of blow-drying really took a toll on my hair.

My DevaCurl shampoo and conditioner is all I have been using for the past 2 weeks. I washed it about four times. It defined my curls more and more as I keep using the products. I also use the texturizing curl crème after I toweled dried my hair. I do not use a diffuser. I have left it air dried and I am so happy with the results.

The first thing I noticed about these products was their packaging.  It is sleek and simple.  The vibrant colors are very eye catching and pleasant to look at.  Even the font of the writing is very pretty. The smell is absolutely pleasant. A blend of amazing oils put together. I totally love it.

Define & Control Styling Cream Touchable Curl Definer: If you absolutely want nothing to do with gel, but still want the same hold then this cream is for you.  I tried this curl definer and was surprised at how well it set and held my curls throughout the day.  Another plus is that it smells amazing!

What are you guys using for your curls? Keep me informed below. I love to try new products all the time. Make sure you follow me on my Instagram @beautybygisell
Thank you lovelys!

Truth about "MYTOPFACE.COM" - Boris and Vyachesla Tkach aka Kay Tea

My daughter has contacted them nicely many, many times so they can pay her what she worked for. They both refuse to pay (their last check) so we will take them to court (June 6, 2017) and also spread the word so buyers do not get fooled by purchasing products they write about. 

HER REAL NAME IS Vyachesla Tkach, AKA AS Kay Tea and her husband's name is Boris.

MyTopFace.com is a blog that reviews products and then they blog about it. I am here to let companies know that they do not review any products before writing a post. If you see all their post, they write how good they are and how My Top Face expert agrees but really the truth is no one reviews anything. Well there is no experts lol. They just write without reviewing and I think that is not ethical to do. Unlike me and many other legit bloggers we accept products we try it for weeks and then we give our honest opinion. How do I know this? I know this because I have written for them and also my daughter worked with them for 6 months.

Also, my daughter quit working with them because they are simply rude and they demand so much. They know that my daughter works full time and full time attends college. They didn't care so my daughter had enough and quit just like that. So they REFUSE to pay what they owe her for her writing for them.

Till this day (4/20/2017) they still harass my daughter on her website reporting her so they can bring the website down, and they called the NYC police so they can have my daughter arrested for harassment. Kay Tea also made a craigslist ad, selling an iPhone but purposely added my daughters number to it.

Why so much hate? I will find out soon in court.

Super Collagen Powder by NeoCell

Collagen - is it really so important? Collagen is a natural protein component of the skin that acts like a scaffold and the main building block for cells, tissues and organs. About a third of the protein content in your body is made up of collagen, which is found in the bones, muscles, and tissues of the organs. Collagen, keratin and elastin give the skin its strength, elasticity and structure.

The body naturally produces the collagen that it needs, but this production is gradually disrupted as part of the natural aging process. Women produce less collagen than men, and this collagen is lost at a rate of about 1% per year. This means that a woman has naturally lost almost half of the collagen from her skin by the age of 50.

Collagen is also greatly affected by environmental stresses such as sun exposure, nutrition, skin damage, and exposure to toxins such as pollutants, cigarette smoke and recreational drugs. With decreased collagen, the skin loses its natural elasticity and firmness, and fine lines, wrinkles and sagging appear.

Collagen supplements claim to offer a range of benefits, including
  • reducing wrinkles
  • reversing age of skin
  • tighter skin
  • plumps up skin
  • improves skin elasticity
The truth is, however, that there is little to no evidence that beauty supplements, pills and drinks can do what they claim. Collagen is a type of protein which when ingested, is broken down by the digestive system into individual amino acids to be recombined by cells according to their needs.  

My Opinion:

This collagen powder is Color-less, Tasteless, Non-Sugar, Non-fat, 100% low molecular natural Collagen Powder. It contain 6,600mg of Collagen per scoop. wow!

After trying out this collagen powder for about a month, I have not seen any significant effect just yet. I think the effect come with long term daily consumption. Nonetheless, I will not stop using it. It does not interfere with my daily life and I just add one scoop to my daily smoothie routine.

How is Neocell better than other brands you might ask yourself? Well, Neocell has the most mg in one scoop, glutten free, increase hydration for joints. What you have to loose? Nothing I say. For more information visit the website www.neocell.com and check out all the amazing products.

Vitamin E Oil

Vitamin 💊 E Oil....

I have been using this for about a year and it has been amazing on my skin.

Vitamin E is both a nutrient and an antioxidant, and this oil being in its purest form is extremely versatile. Applying a dime-size amount of vitamin E on a daily basis goes a long way. Also an anti-inflammatory, this works amazing on wrinkles by preventing them and the radical damage they come with from the very start. It treats wrinkles by boosting collagen production, a connective tissue that keeps skin elastic.

Vitamin E oil also treats wrinkles by supporting new skin cell growth and speeding up cell regeneration. I use at night just after I cleanse my skin. Hope you have found this to be informative!

Confidence in a Compact by IT Cosmetics

Until now, no one has been able to create a serum and combine it with pigments and SPF 50+ for full coverage. Not only does it deliver all the amazing skincare benefits of the best-selling Confidence in a Cream, the groundbreaking solid serum technology and high-performance anti-aging ingredients will truly transform your skin. 

The formula is creamy, yet light and airy, just like a serum. This product is sure to blow you away.

Pairs perfectly with our NEW Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush.  The Heavenly Skin Skin-Smoothing Complexion Brush is super soft and high-quality just like all of the IT brushes I've tried. It has fairly short, dense bristles and an angled shape, perfect for buffing foundation into the skin. 

I really love how flawless it made my skin look! It gives your skin a somewhat dewy appearance (there's no shimmer or glitter at all) where light seems to reflect off of your face and makes you look luminous rather than flat. Like the CC+ cream, it does take some time to dry down and for the next several minutes. Available at Ulta stores and ItCosmetics.com

What's your favorite foundation?

Alchemist Holographic Palette by Kat Von D

What it is: An eye lip and face transformer palette with four holographic shades.
What it does: Revamp your makeup looks with this innovative Alchemist Palette featuring four holographic shades. It's perfect for achieving a spectrum of radiant special effects by layering Alchemist over eyeshadow and lipstick.

Each of the four shades within the palette catches the light from every angle for a spectrum of luminizing special effects; perfect for customizing finishes and exploring your artistic expression. The hybrid formula also doubles as a super-shimmery highlighter. Simply sweep product over prepped skin for otherworldly iridescence. Because the formula is packed with high-quality pearlescent particles a little goes a long way; even a subtle application imparts bold impact.

What else you need to know: The inspiration for this palette comes from the ancient science of alchemy—the art of turning natural materials into a precious elixir. Alchemist Holographic Palette is completely free of animal-derived ingredients. I am proud to say that Kat Von D Beauty has never tested on animals; and never will.

The Kat Von D Alchemist palette is a Limited Edition Holographic Face & Eye Palette, it is sold at Sephora, Sephora.com and Katvondcosmetics.com and is $32 US

The alchemist palette is a beautiful white holographic triangle, it feels like durable cardboard palette with a magnetic closure, on the inside there is as small mirror and four shades Emerald (Green), Saphyre (Blue), Amethyst (Ultra-Violet), Opal (Pink). This palette can be used as eyeshadow, highlighter or a top-coat for eyeshadow and lipstick.

The colors don’t look impressive when in the pan, but when applied they have a holographic appearance, almost like a duo chrome metallic glitter, these shadows are not chunky they are very smooth and when I swirled my brush I had minimal dust but it picked up on the brush very well. When I applied it to my eyes I used a fluffy crease brush, I patted it on my eyelids with the brush first then blended it out, it went on very smooth with really no fallout and blended out nicely, the color goes on a little sheer without a base but gives a gorgeous color and shine. I tested it as a highlighter, these are bold colors for highlighters but if you’re a person who likes a bold highlight these are gorgeous, I dusted them on with a fluffy highlight brush and when they hit the light they beam. I also tried them as a top-coat for lipstick, they give the lipstick a metallic duo chrome like finish, great for changing up a lip color.

The texture of the formula was dustier, a little drier to the touch, and I found they layered best over still-drying cream products or shimmery eyeshadows but did not work well over a dried, matte cream eyeshadow. The dustier formula made them very blendable as a cheek highlighter, though, and of all the ways I tried the product, they were easiest and had the most noticeable shift applied as highlighters, whether alone or layered over another cheek color. They layered best over matte and satin finish lip products, as they seemed to get absorbed and muted by more emollient formulas.

This palette contains: - 4 x 0.05 oz/ 1.53 g Holographic Shades in Emerald (green) Saphyre (blue) Amethyst (ultra-violet) Opal (pink) What it is formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Phthalates


Emerald is a pale, greenish-white that shifted from pink to golden green. It had good color payoff with a soft, lightly dusty texture. The product lasted for seven hours as an eye product and eight hours as a cheek product.


Saphyre is a bluish white with pink base that shifted to a cool, bluish sheen. The pigmentation was mostly opaque, while the texture was a touch dusty but blendable and easy to use on the skin. It wore well for eight hours as a cheek highlighter and seven and a half hours as an eyeshadow.


Amethyst is a light-medium lavender with cool undertones and a bluish-violet sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied well to bare skin, both on the eyes and on the cheeks, as well as most products I attempted to layer it with (but it seemed dustiest over cream eyeshadows that had dried down completely). It wore well for eight hours on as a highlighter and eight hours as an eyeshadow.


Opal is a muted, dirty beige with a pink to violet shift paired with a pearly sheen. The consistency was soft, blendable, and just a touch dusty. I felt like it looked drier on my bare eyelid, but it was fine over another product. On cheeks, I did not notice any dryness from the product itself. The product lasted for eight hours as a cheek highlighter and seven hours as an eyeshadow on me.

Disclosure: This review is NOT sponsored; my reviews are my opinion and all products are purchased by me.

I used Amethyst in these pictures. One picture has more light (natural window light)

Why You Need Color Correctors?

I don’t know about you, but achieving a smooth canvas with my skin is number one on my list when it comes to makeup. Before I even begin to think about adding any sort of glam, color or dramatic effects, I want to look even-toned. No blotches, dark circles or spots – just smooth and clear. But knowing how to achieve that can sometimes feel complicated. So I thought I’d break it down with these makeup essentials. Trust me when I tell you they’ll change the way you do your makeup. Read on for all the details.

Makeup Essentials: Why You Need Color Correctors
One of the best ways to achieve that is by using one of my favorite products: The Motives Color Correction Quad. Sounds super simple – and, it is. Designed to help you even out your skin tone and correct even the most stubborn blemishes, it’s an essential for your makeup kit and one you soon will not be able to live without.

Here’s how it works:
Using the Motives® new Color Correction Guide, you’ll quickly learn how to make the color correction quad your new best friend. Depending on the type of skin you have and what you’d like to correct, you’ll start to see that different colors in the quad will combat different areas of concern.

Motives Launches Color Correction Guide: How to Use It

Start by selecting your concern to learn how to achieve your flawless finish. You can choose from:
  • Dark Circles
  • Redness
  • Dark Spots
  • Dullness
Even though the colors in the quad don’t seem like they’ll even out your skin tone and hide even the most stubborn blemishes – they will! It’s all about using the right combination to achieve the desired effect. And, the best part about this – you’re not just covering your imperfections, you’re correcting them.
By using the simple color correction guide, you’ll learn how to conceal dark circles and discoloration, counteract redness, and brighten dull skin for an instantly-luminous, even-toned complexion. I have to admit, it’s like science and magic came together – because it works like a charm, and it’s the perfect way to prep your face before you move on to foundation.

SAMPLE: Here’s how to combat circles for “Light” skin:
  1. Brighten dark, under-eye circles with peach
  2. Use Motives® Color Correction Quad: No. 1 (Light to Medium)
  3. Use the concealing shade tan from No. 2 (Tan to Deep) to expertly blend color correcting shades into the skin
  4. Refer to your selected complexion image for optimal shade placement and application technique
  5. Follow with your routine application of foundation and you’re off!
So, what do you think? Will you give this great product a try? For me, it’s the perfect solution for those tough to manage blemishes and uneven skin tone issues that typically leaves me frustrated and feeling dull. And, now…I can’t live without the color correction quads.

Neocell Products for Thinning Hair

I have been using NeoCell products for a few months now with truly amazing results. My hair was thin, dry and dull before. Now I have lots of new hair growth, minimal hair loss, increased volume, shine and strength! These are the very best products for hair, skin and nails that I have ever seen or tried. NeoCell delivers real results that you can see!

NeoCell Beauty Infusion Collagen drink comes in three delicious flavors. I have the Tangerine Twist flavor, which was delicious! This isn’t just a collagen drink either. Each serving of NeoCell Beauty Infusion Collagen drink contains 6,000 MG of NeoCell collagen™ Type 1 & 3, 50 MG of Hyaluronic Acid for skin hydration & renewal, 3,000 MCG of Biotin for support of strong hair & nail growth, and Alpha Lipoic Acid & Vitamin C for protection from free radical damage & enhancement of collagen formation. You get a power packed drink in every single scoop. The collagen drink can be mixed with water or any non-dairy drink that you choose. I enjoyed this collagen drink so much. The orange flavor was natural tasting and delicious. It wasn’t overly sweet or bitter tasting at all. The drink mix was also very easy to mix with water which was what I used.

If you are experiencing the same symptoms or know someone who is, it is worth it to try out these products. For more information, please follow NeoCell on Facebook and Twitter.

Define and Embrace Your Pretty Curls


If you have natural curly hair, you understand that it can be a challenge to maintain. You see women in magazines with beautiful defining curls with no trace of imperfection, and you tell yourself, “I WANT THAT”! But how?

Curls is whole-heartily dedicated to controlling, moisturizing, de-frizzing, and embracing the natural curls of every woman and man out there. Curly hair is bold, natural, and beautiful. If one’s hair is not naturally straight, straight hair must be obtained by applying heat. Whether you blow dry your hair to a straight finish or straighten your hair between two hot plates, or the use of a hot tool styling brush, heat is always the answer whether we like it or not. Most individuals do not know how to properly apply heat to their hair to avoid damage at all costs, including the right temperature to use. Taking a break from straightening and heating your hair to avoid heat overload, let your hair breathe and rest naturally. If you have naturally wavy or super curly hair once wet and naturally set, you want to take care of them, the right way. Naturally curly hair needs to be moisturized and maintained.

Blueberry Bliss Cleanser is a shampoo dedicated to weightless waves. If you are curious to know if this is for you and your hair, this is geared towards those with wavy hair that need weightless moisture. This cleanser gives the perfect amount of hydration. The light, moisturizing formula, made with organic ingredients, that fights frizz, detangles and sets you up for a defined, wavy look. After using this product I found their wavy hair so lightweight and it lasted all day! Curious on how to use it?
  • Apply cleanser to wet hair, focusing on the ends.
  • Use your fingers to gently glide the product through your waves to moisturize and detangle.
  • Rinse as needed.
Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask

For those of you with super dry curls, especially from putting excessive heat to it, Curl Hair Intense Moisture Treatment is for you! This rich, creamy, deep Conditioning Treatment drenches dehydrated hair with Chamomile for long-lasting moisture, protection and shine.

How to use:
  • Glide a generous amount through wet hair with your fingertips and let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes.
  • Rinse well. Use one to two times per week or as needed.

This is me loving my curls!

Klō Organic Beauty Oils Purify and Moisturize for Radiant Skin

Klō Organic Beauty is a sister-owned company in The Beautiful Berkshires. They create small batches of 100% toxin-free, organic luxury skin care. They are proud to use only the best oils to heal and illuminate skin.Website: https://klobeauty.com

Whether you have oily skin or dry skin, it’s not about one extreme or the other when it comes to your skincare routine; it’s about choosing the right oils that diminish the concerns of all skin types, without leaving skin unbalanced. So even if you have blemished skin, don’t be afraid of oil-based products; simply choose the ones meant for your skin type. Oils can actually be a heavenly, God-send to those with acne. With all the beauty brands out there, you’ll want to reach for the best quality organic ingredients, and that’s why I am writing this post.

Both RE3 the oil cleanser and serum are made with both essential and skin-specific oils that all work together to purify pores, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, regenerate cells, heal existing skin abrasions, reduce pore size, and moisturize the skin. The oils also fade the appearance of dark spots and scarring, brightening the skin. All of these skin-loving components help to evenly balance the oils in your skin, leaving you with smooth, clear and radiant skin that will have you glowing naturally. With both having relaxing oil aromas, with the Grapefruit Essential Oil being the most powerful scent. These Scents are purely organic and unlike other artificial fragrances, won’t irritate skin and clog pores.

My Opinion: I have been using these products for days on a daily basis. My skin loves it and the radiance glow is to die for. I am obsesses and so will you. Check out my Instagram on my post on Klo Products (beautybygisell)
