Cinnamon for almost anything

Did you know cinnamon is known to kill bacteria and help prevent infections. If you or your child cut yourselves grab a cinnamon or cinnamon powder and sprinkle in the wound. :) Try it

I also use cinnamon in my own home made body scrub take a look at my other post and tell me ur opinion.
We also use cinnamon to sprinkle on our puerto rican famous holiday drink called "Coquito" with Rum :) CHEERS!

Pure Vita C Dual Mic Review by Rojukiss (Vitamin c)

How to use:

1. Due to the nature of vitamin C, use it at night when there is no sunlight.
2. Pump 2~3 times on your hand.
3. Mix the two bags by using your fingers.
4. Spread the mix all over your face thinly.
5. be careful not to touch your eyes.

The importance of vitamin C
When it comes to skin repair, rejuvenation and damage prevention, Vitamin C is hard to beat.
You get 3 big benefits from 1 simple and naturally sourced ingredient. One thing’s for sure, this is a seriously hard-working vitamin!

Vitamin C skin care isn’t just about what you eat.

We all know about the importance of vitamin C. Eating fresh fruit and veggies is a must if you want a healthy body and mind. However, there’s another way you can boost the benefits of vitamin C. Absorbing vitamin C directly into the skin allows you to take a targeted approach - a vitamin C face cream is a simple way to do that.

After using this for couple days, I am so glad I did. Talking about reguvanating skin? I look awake and my face skin looks healthier!

Apply the natural Vitamin C!
- Rojukiss Pure Vita C Dual Mix keeps the pure vitamin C (which oxidizes fast in the water) in the form of powder and provides the freshly made vitamin C. Oxidized vitamin C loses its effect as vitamin C, an changes its color and scent. Besides, it can damage your skin.
* It absorbs sebum so well that you can wake up with soft and smooth skin. 
Why Pure Vitamin C Dual Mix is special?

1. Pure vitamin C is stabilized in a separate container!
To complement the shortcoming of pure vitamin C that oxidize fast in the water, vitamin C Powder and solution are kept separately.When you mix it before use, you can use the freshest vitamin C in the solution that enhances the vitamin absorption to your skin.
2. Comparing with products made by other companies
The vitamin in liquid form changes its color and scent and oxidizes as time goes by. So it is not very effective. Due to the oxidization, old Vitamin c smells bad when you use it. To prevent this from happening, Rojukiss Dual Mix Line products separated vitamin C from solution and minimize the oxidization of vitamin C and provide the freshest vitamin C.

Try it and see what it can do for you. Take care of your face, is the only one you got. Stay fabulous girls!


Pore Tightening Source Serum Review

There is really no product out there that can disappear pores. I do not care what you hear. I can promise you that you can tightened pores, making them smaller. I love my serums. Serum for my hair and serum for my face. I received this product and I have been using for a couple of days and it is a nice product. The texture is soft on the skin and you will not feel greasy or heavy on the face. The skin absorbs it rather quickly so you can apply a 2nd coat if you wish.
The smell is soft but it fades quickly so you have no after smell. You can apply a moisturizer right after. Please remember get monthly facials to keep muscles tighter on the face... Stay gorgous ;)
How to use
1. After washing up, apply the toner, then apply the serum
2. Please reapply if you wish for a 2nd coat

Do you smoke?

I promise I am not Lecturing you , just ENLIGHTENING you. I am going to make this post short and to the point. I used to smoke and I quit  in 2001. Was it hard? OHH yea it was! But so worth it.

For me beauty comes inside out. Why workout, why eat healthy, why get facials and massages? Why, Why, Why? If all you do is smoke your beauty away!


  • chokes skin - reduces blood supply to skin , that is why your skin looks yellow and dull. Smoking for 10 minutes decreases oxygen for almost an hour. Toxins build up and accelarates aging.

  • wrinkly skin - destroys collagen and elastin. More wrinkles and sagging skin faster!

  • Ability to heal - wounds take longer to heal and scars are more likely to form.

I am all for skin care. Take care of your skin it's the only one you got. Stay healthy for you and your loved ones! Think about quitting today...

 Please keep visiting daily...

Drown your insides with H2O AKA AS WATER

Picture from InStyle Mag 1/12

Drinking a daily good  amount of water is vital to your health and your insides like I tell my kids. You can never imagine just by drinking a healthy amount of water, you gain tremendous health benefits, and sometimes you can even throw away your migraine medicine or pain killer. Dehydration is what gives humans headaches.

Since I can remeber I love water. I can drink way more than 8 glasses daily. I pressure my family to drink water. I think it is so important for your insides especially your outside like your skin.
Some Benefits are:

The water:

  • Transports nutrients and oxygen into cells
  • Moisturizes the air in lungs
  • Helps with metabolism
  • Protects our vital organ
  • Helps our organs to absorb nutrients better
  • Regulates body temperature
  • Detoxifies
  • Protects and moisturizes our joints

Every cell in your body needs water from head to toe. That is why it is so important to drink enough fluid. Take for example, brain consists of 90% of water, if you do not supply enough water to your body, your brain cannot function well, and you will get headache or migraine. Next time you feel a headache it can be a sign of dehydration...DOn't ignore it, Water it. Maybe you wont need more tylenol after all!

One of the many important benefits is:

You will look younger when your skin is properly hydrated. Water helps to replenish skin tissues, moisturizes skin and increases skin elasticity. this is what I am TALKING about! Skin CARE!

Thank you for reading,
I am all for hair and skin care and hey beauty comes from the inside out... Don't you think?

Hair problems: no VOLUME, dry at the ENDS, & oily ROOTS

Before I start this post I want to confirm I am a Professional Cosmetologist for 10 years. So I call myself a beauty expert :) which I love it!

I recieved a question via twitter from a lady having no volume in her hair so here is my post on this topic.

You are probably shampooing your hair everyday, and that can strip away natural oils (making hair dry), so your scalp over produces oil to make up for it. Shampoo every other day instead, like I do, and follow with conditioner to the middle of the hair to ends. Use dry shampoo in between hair washes, dry shampoos cuts oils out and gives volume at the same time. It is important to use a "light conditioner" and do not apply at the oily roots or you can even get away not conditioning your roots if they are really oily, just applying conditioner at the middle to ends of the hair... For really dry ends after you leave the shower and towel dry hair you can use a leave in conditioner.  Remember use leave in conditioner from the middle to the ends of your hair. Also take in consideration is important to use hair products for your hair type. This make a huge difference....

Follow my blog, I have more great posts about conditioners and other problems.

Renewing Cleansing Cream Resurgence by Murad

Murad Facial line care products is my favorite. I have used many products and I love each and everyone of it. Although I like this product but the only thing I do not care for is the texture (not really a negative) it is soft texture, kinda slippery feel. I rather like it with little rocks in there. It is just my preference. I want to feel more rough then soft. I do not know why lol. It is worth buying because when you done cleansing your skin, you look so much brighter and you see no traces of makeup on the face.  It gently exfoliates, boosts hydration and restores skin's natural moisture barrier plus tones skin all in one. It is important to exfoliate daily.

Primary Benefits:
Lifts away dull, dry skin cells and Reveals radiant skin surface. For a 6.75 FL. OZ. price $35. Not bad for the price huh?  

Thank you again for reading my post.

How to pick out the BEST Blow Dryer tool

Is a $300 hair dryer really better than a $25 hair dryer?
Do you really need a better quality hair dryer? Well, it depends - do you really need healthy, strong hair that isn't brittle or frayed? We think paying a little more for a quality hair dryer is a reasonable investment.

Let's break down some of the features you should look for in a quality hair dryer - and more importantly, why.

The Heating Element:

Cheap hair dryers normally use metal or plastic heating elements that burn with intense and uneven heat. Essentially, they dry your hair by cooking the water out of it - literally boiling it off. That is why is important to soak and air dry most of the humidity first before really straight blowing it out.
With high-end hair dryers, ceramic heating is the standard. Ceramic has remarkable properties of heat conduction - which you may know, because modern space heaters and similar home technology tend to use ceramic.

This is because ceramic produces "far infrared heat" which is radiant - it penetrates the hair shaft safely, instead of heating from the outside in. This also explains why ceramic flat irons &; curling irons are the choice of professionals.

Ceramic, which can be infused with tourmaline or other elements, produces a gentle heat that means ceramic heating is safer - ceramic space heaters won't catch things on fire the way metal ones are prone to do, and ceramic hair dryers won't blast your hair with harmful energy.

"Ionic" drying:

Cheap hair dryers that use metal or plastic elements diffuse positive ions that cause the (normally neutral) cuticle covering of the hair shaft to open, causing frizz and dull appearance.

Ionic hair dryers produce negatively charged ions, which cause the cuticle to remain flat, "trapping" moisture, eliminating frizz and giving hair more body.

Plus, they dry hair faster than regular dryers and leave it shinier and smoother. This is because they don't "cook" your hair dry like the old metal or plastic coils did - they actually break down water molecules in your hair instead. Ionic dryers also banish the static electricity that results in a flyaway mess of hair.


Tourmaline was recently introduced to the hair science for its incredible capability to generate negative ions. With more negative ions, a hair dryer can dry faster (up to 75%) for unbelievably sleeker, shiny hair. We carry a number of high performance tourmaline dryers.

Tourmaline hair dryers can be combined with tourmaline treated brushes or other heat styling tools like tourmaline flat irons to add to the shiny, sleek effect.


While wattage varies among hair dryers, we always recommend something 1300 watts or above (unless a travel hair dryer). All of our professional hair dryers fit this category. Wattage directly affects how fast your hair dries (higher watts = more time to snooze in the morning).

Cool Shot options available on most hair dryers create a blast of cool air which is useful when setting finished styles - you can use it to dry finishing sprays or similar setting products.

I hope this post helps you a little. If you have more questions ask me here on a comment or email me too.

Thank you for reading,

Gisell xoxo

In need of an Eyebrow waxing?

Sometimes we get so busy in life that when we look in the mirror we realize we forgot to get our eyebrows done? What to do you ask yourself? Then realizing you have no time too run to the nearest salon to get your eyebrows waxed.

3 easy steps: Are you ready?

1. wipe area with the cleansing wipe and dry completely
2. apply the gel (from the tube)
3. firmly strip on and while holding skin taut quickly removing off skin

Nicely looking eyebrows before that special event
This product is inexpensive, hypoallergenic, no heating needed and easy to use with enclosed instructions.

The best part is if you make a mistake applying the gel you can easily remove with WATER! Yes, water and restart again!
