It's the Tahitian Bronzer Review!

So AVON comes up with this really cool idea to have an all over bronzer with a built in lip and cheek tint. The thing is, this isn't really my sort of item. So! A couple friends in Kentucky (who didn't marry their cousins) offered to field test them for me!

Now here's an example how Murphy's Law can rule. I'd planned on recording the review over Skype using Pamela (a program that records Skype calls). But nothing worked out. THEN!!! I discovered she had sent me an email with her review and I just now found it! How did I miss it, you ask? It's called the curse of switching from Windows Mail to Windows Live Mail. Somewhere along the line not everything transfered like I thought it did.

Anyway! So, here's Di's unedited email review!

Hi Yo,

I am testing the bronzer today. WOW it really does bronze!! It is a really nice color on me and my face was lighter than my arms so I just used it on my face, no place else. I do like the colored part of the product too, I put a little on my cheeks and it blends in very easily and looks pretty natural. I tried it for a lip color and it is really pretty, not a color I would normally pick but it does look nice and very feminine. The bronzer dried quickly but not so quickly that I couldn't spread it around with my fingers. It didn't leave my face sticky either like I thought it might. I did use it over my super dooper moisturizer.

So, so far so good, I like it. I'll have to see what Amy thinks of it.

More later,

And there you go! The intro special is $4.99, so grab it now while it's still dirt cheap! :]

Make it a great one!

Coming Attractions!

Hey guys!

Hope everyone had a great day!

I was supposed to record a product review chat with my field testers in Kentucky, but that fell through when my mom asked if I needed a ride to the store for food - of which I did. So, food won out over a product review. Yeah, I know. I need to get my priorities straight.

Anyway! Di and I plan on doing the chat tomorrow sometime and if I can get Pamela to record Skype properly, I should have it posted in no time flat! :]

The next review after that one is a biggie!!! I'm doing my own take on Avon's Curves Pedometer! That's one video you won't want to miss!

Meanwhile, make it a great night and hope to see you tomorrow!

Curse of the stretch mark! The conclusion.

(the conclusion of "The Curse of the Stretch Mark!")

It's time to have your guard up. There are lots of companies out there selling stretch mark creams claiming they get rid of stretch marks. They're about as true as commercials that suggest you can make millions by working only 1 hour a week. They prey on the desperate. You're not desperate.

Then there's the companies that are honest about their products. AVON is one of those companies. Yea, I know. Here comes a sales pitch. Naturally! Why else would you have kept reading? You're looking for answers. So here we go!

AVON has a new product invented by a woman with stretch marks. Now, is she going to invent crap? 1. Not when she was looking for a way to get tame hers. 2. If you still think she'd invent crap so AVON can make a buck - you don't know women or their hate of stretch marks. LOL Besides, unlike companies you'll find at the back of muscle magazines, AVON cares about it's reputation.

Anyway, the product has a name longer than a stretch mark! Anew Clinical Professional Stretch Mark Smoother. See?

So what does it do? It stimulates collagen to correct the look of your stretch marks. It boosts elastin to prevent new marks from forming. It also has a natural plant extract called butea that helps lighten and fade your marks. It will not get rid of stretch marks. Re-read that last sentence.

When you think of AVON's money back guarantee, the fact that it's a reputable company and that you can read legitimate reviews on AVON's site, the only thing you have to lose is the embarrassment of your bear claws standing out like a sore thumb.

Better still - you can bypass the ding dong Avon lady by ordering online and it will be delivered to your house via UPS. So, what are you waiting for? Give it a shot and let me know how it went for you! You're opinion won't be wasted either. I'll be using it when I do my product reviews.



Curse of the stretch mark!

What's the first thing you think of when you hear the words "stretch marks"? A big, fat pregnant lady who looks like she's about to explode.

Pregnant women are the queens of stretch marks! Not! Seriously, they're not! Men and boys also have them. Take a look at about every bodybuilder on the planet - you'll find stretch marks.

Some bodybuilders see stretch marks as a right of passage, a badge of honour...until they wake up and realise stretch marks are dang ugly and mar the beauty of a bodybuilders body.

Stretch marks aren't cool and they can really effect a guys confidence. After all, no guy wants to go to the beach looking like a bear clawed him across his massive pecs, arms, legs and back.

Unfortunately, there's no way to get rid of stretch marks once you get them. So what do you do? First, how did you got them to begin with. Weightlifting! Yea, yea, yea, but how about a little more detail.

Do this. Get a rubber band and stretch it just as far as it will go without snapping. Watch the band as it stretches. Note the changes in the colour. See any striation in the bands? You may not notice them as much with a regular band, but if you use a coloured one, you'll really see it.

That's what happened to your skin when you were weightlifting. As your muscle mass grew, it stretched the elasticity in your skin to the breaking point. The skin has only so much elasticity to it. Once you go past it, you're just like the rubber band - you stretch, you snap. In this case, the snap becomes a stretch mark - a reddish or purple mark on your skin that eventually becomes a glossy streak in silver or white. They vary in appearance.

So, now we know how you got them. We know you can't get rid of them. Now what? Welp, there is hope! You might not be able to get rid of them, but you can definitely reduce their appearance so they don't stand out like a sore thumb.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the answer!

Another eBay upload!

I just posted another product on my eBay page! It's my favourite out of the Foot Works line - Watermelon Exfoliating Foot Scrub. It's awesome!

I know, the idea of exfoliating the feet sounds a bit weird. Frankly, I thought it was pretty stupid. There's also my dislike of exfoliators to begin with. I hate the gritty feel that seems to never leave my face and in this case it would be my feet.

Much to my surprise, that wasn't the case! In fact, all those little bits of watermelon seed felt like a wonderful massage on the bottom of my feet and my hands. And afterwards? oooo aaaaaahhhh! My feet were in heaven. :]

So, go over and place your bid and see what I mean! It's one of those things you'll keep using and using.
