Earlier this month I had the pleasure of joining Stila Cosmetics behind the scenes at Bertha Runway Show Spring 2020, captivated backstage by all the bridal beauty and accessories (goodness, those earrings!!💖) Took my time chatting with Charlie Riddle, who worked his magic for Stila to create the sultry look for Bertha Bridal: Athena. See how you can get the look:

Herbal Essences & PETA

HERBAL ESSENCES SULFATE-FREE
CRUELTY-FREE & PETA APPROVED

Evcurlgurl.com

Herbal Essences has long been one of my favorite shampoo and conditioner, and things just got better with two major news: 1. The launch of their first sulfate free collections earlier this year. Herbal Essences became the first mass hair care brand to become EWG VERIFIED for their sulfate-free botanical shampoos. 2. They've also joined PETA - earning a spot on their "Beauty without Bunnies" list 🐇(see below). Earlier this month I received official mailing from PETA directly, confirming the news, along with a sample of an Herbal Essences shampoo. 

Evcurlgurl.com

P&G sent me the NEW Herbal Essences Honey & Vitamin B and Birch Bark Sulfate Free Shampoos and Conditioners (Note: the Honey & Vitamin B are my fave of the two).

NEW Sol de Janeiro Sun Care

SOL DE JANEIRO BUM BUM SOL
OIL SPF 30 MY SOL STICK SPF 50
Evcurlgurl.com
NEW #SOLvibes - sent by reps!

Get ready for some serious SOL vibes. Sol de Janeiro finally launched new additions with SPF. I'm seriously obsessed with anything SOL Bum Bum (pronounced boom boom) thanks to their Cheirosa ’62 Brazilian scent, and of course, SPF. Why? It's no secret that I'm hardcore into sun safety (think, skincare and anti-aging) and I never leave the house without SPF, so when I can have the best of both worlds - Sol Brazilian Bum Bum + SPF - I'm SOLd! 😎 My newest faves from the brand: NEW Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Sol Oil SPF 30 and My Sol Stick SPF 50

Evcurlgurl.com

If you don't know, SOL products are made with Brazilian Body expertise, "they worship skin, while loving the sun" and they care about our planet: Sol de Janeiro never uses coral-damaging ingredients in their SPF products. Aside from smelling deliciously addictive, I could not get over the cute, tiny surfboard floating inside the bottle - remember the surfboard spatula that accompanied the Biggie Biggie Bum Bum Cream?

For years, Nad's - the Australian family-owned, woman run company founded by Sue Ismiel as a solution to her daughter’s unwanted hair - has been a leader for at-home, hair removal. I've used Nad's in the past, and I absolutely love how mistake-proof the formula is. Unlike traditional wax, if you make a mistake, just rinse with water. All natural, cruelty-free and best of all: no heat required. Well, last November I attended a press preview launch with the brands mother daughter duo Sue & Natalie Ismiel, who joined us all the way from Australia to share their newest additions. #TheNadsImpact

The Christmas countdown is officially winding down, and if you're still dashing around doing last minute shopping (or in need of that one special gift), the clock is ticking. So what better way to go gifting, than with my very good friends Nordstrom? I had the ultimate pleasure of attending the Nordstrom 2018 Press Preview eight weeks ago - my second time attending - back on October 24th, when brands reps unveiled Nordstrom's 2018 holiday selection. This event may very well rival my Superbowl (covering backstage beauty at New York Fashion Week)... HANDS DOWN! The "heavenly heavy haul" may also be why:

Vaseline® Clinical Care

VASELINE CLINICAL CARE
FOR EXTREMELY DRY SKIN
Evcurlgurl.com

The bitter blast of winter is here, bringing with it rough, dry and cracked skin. It seems that no matter how much lotion you use, dry skin just won't go away. Well, Vaseline® introduced Clinical Care™, a breakthrough line of dermatologist-tested body products aimed to rescue hard to heal dry skin during moments you need it most. There are six products in the Clinical Care range, and I received a mailer from Vaseline reps, and thoroughly tested three in the line for one week, and the results are amazing. My skin is smooth and supple; hydrated all day - and night.

Evcurlgurl.com

The new lotions contain a Barrier Repair Complex™ – a unique formula made up of glycerin, pro-lipids, and Vaseline Jelly, that when combined strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, transforming it from extremely dry to healed in five days. The specially designed blend of Glycerin delivers moisture directly to skin, with Pro-lipids serving as building blocks to create a moisture barrier, and iconic Vaseline® Jelly to help lock in moisture. This trifecta of ingredients quickly rescues very dry, rough skin.

Evcurlgurl.com

Vaseline® Clinical Care™ range can be used daily, is Dermatologist-tested and hypoallergenic. Let's take a further look at the six products in the line:

NEW Coco Cabana Cream

INTRODUCING SOL DE JANEIRO
COCO CABANA CREAM
Evcurlgurl.com

It's been a great weekend, especially with Sol de Janeiro's NEW Coco Cabana Cream launching yesterday (8.1 oz./240mL - $45.00). It's no secret that I am addicted to their Bum Bum Cream (pronounced boom boom), and it's one-of-a-kind delectable scent, but this new cream is out of this world. Think coconut and sugar, and this cream is a moisture magnet oil-in-water body cream that provides 72 hours of moisture. SWEET!

Evcurlgurl.com


I've had the pleasure of test driving this divine new cream since attending the product launch with Sol de Janeiro on November 8th, and what an event it was: Brazil Carnaval theme, four floors of event space complete with Samba dancers and a synchronized swimmer - check out stills from my Instagram stories:

Dove Deodorant

FALL FABULOUS & WINTER WONDERFUL UNDERARMS WITH DOVE DEODORANT
Evcurlgurl.com

With fall weather rounding into winter (we're already into the holidays and winter begins on December 21st), I have been wearing chunky sweaters and long sleeves since October, and it's easy to neglect your underarm area since they're undercover. I personally still go sleeveless indoors, so my underarms must always be smooth and look immaculate. This is why I trust Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant and Dove Dry Spray for soft, smooth and healthy looking underarms (and no dark spots - clear skin!) See how below: 

Evcurlgurl.com

A fan for years, and it still thrills me whenever Dove sends me a package (or "Love from Dove" as I call it). More importantly, Dove products are now cruelty-free accredited by PETAI love Dove deodorants all year round, especially during the harsh winter, when I notice I have super soft underarms - all while receiving top-notch sweat and odor protection that I rely on with my stress-filled, busy days. 

Dove Advanced Care Beauty Finish Antiperspirant provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection plus the added skincare benefits of NutriumMoisture™, which is designed to help skin retain its moisture balance over time and aid in the skin’s natural renewal process. The formula helps prevent conditions such as irritation, uneven skin-tone, dryness and red marks with ¼ moisturizers and NutriumMoisture™ for softer, smoother underarms.

Dove Beauty Finish Dry Spray Antiperspirant has all the care of Dove that goes on instantly dry for a cleaner feel. It provides 48-hour odor and wetness protection with ¼ moisturizers for added skincare benefits.
