Turn Your Favorite Shampoo Into Toning Shampoo with OGX

 

OGX Purple Toning Drops

Keeping blonde hair brass and yellow free is a tireless effort. The easiest way to keep it in shape is by using a toning shampoo or conditioner. There are tons of products on the market these days, but a lot of people complain that toning shampoos can dry out hair and are expensive to boot.

A new product from OGX allows you to tone your hair using your own shampoo and conditioner! OGX Blonde Enhance + Purple Toning Drops (I may get a commission from this link) are concentrated purple drops that you mix into the product to create a custom toning product for hair.

Just dispense your shampoo or conditioner into your hand, add 3 to 5 drops and mix! Use it just with shampoo, just conditioner or both! You can easily customize the level of toning.

I found that the less of the drops you use, the more “blue” your mix will be. That works great for me because I prefer a blue shampoo to purple. If you don’t know what your color is, read my article on finding your undertones. I found this at ULTA Beauty, but you can probably find it wherever OGX products are sold. Priced between $7 and $10, it’s an amazing product!

The Best Retinol You’ll Ever Use and It’s Under $6

The Ordinary’s Retinol Serum is the perfect pick me up for aging skin.

Retinol, or Vitamin A is a popular skincare ingredient in wrinkle creams and serums. It works by stimulating cell turnover, increasing circulation and  boosting collagen production. The super vitamin can cure uneven skintone, plump skin and reduce fine lines. It also works on large pores and acne. In short, its a super product you can use daily to turn back the clock.

Once only available through a dermatologist, Retinol is available over the counter in a variety of strengths and prices. But just because a product is expensive, doesn’t mean it delivers. One of the best retinol treatments on the market is sold in a non-descript bottle for just $5.80.

The Ordinary’s Retinol in squalane is a nighttime treatment that leaves your skin moisturized, plump and younger after a few treatments. With regular use, my pores are smaller, lines less noticeable, skin tone is more even and my skin is plumper. I really regret it when I go to bed without putting this stuff on. The only negative for me is that it comes in a glass bottle with an eyedropper, because I am prone to spilling. Fortunately, I can afford to pick another one up. Unfortunately, it’s out of stock a lot.

The Ordinary retinol serum is available in strengths ranging from .01 to .05 percent. Start on the lower end until your skin gets used to it. Too much too fast and you’ll get red, flaking skin. It comes in a base of Squalane, a high moisture oil found naturally in the human body. You can find it ULTA Beauty, Sephora and Deciem.com for just $5.80

Clarisonic is closing and everything is on sale

Everything on the sonic beauty device’s site is 50 percent off.

After more than 15 years, Clarisonic is closing down for good. Acquired by L’Oreal in 2011, the company has decided to stop selling the high-end facial device across all retail channels, including on the direct-to-consumer website. The last day you can shop is Sept. 30, 2020.

Everything on the site is 50 percent off from devices to brush heads. If you already have a device stock up on brush heads starting at $13.50 each. Devices start at $49.50. The devices last forever (I have had two for over 5 years) and you can find aftermarket brushes to fit. Shipping free and you get a free gift with any purchase over $30.

If the brush head you want is sold out, try looking at other beauty and department stores. Many of the retailers are also lowering prices to clear stock of Clarisonic items.

 

Serovital now available at CVS at up to 40 percent off

The 21-day supply is only available in stores, not online.

Your favorite Hgh booster is now available at CVS stores. The price for 21-day supply is $59.99, buuuut you might be able to get it cheaper if you have a CVS Extra Care card. Every so often members get 25% and 40% off coupons in their email and regular mail. These coupons are typically good on anything in the store that isn’t on sale.

Serovital is only available in-store, but if you go to the site and put in your location you can find the store closest to you that has it in stock. In the last couple of days, all the stores near me are out so I’m guessing other people got the same idea of using the coupon. If you use the 25% off coupon you can get it for $45 and $36 with a 40% off coupon.

There is a new tiny fridge to keep your skincare cold

FaceTory Fridge

The new countertop fridge by FaceTory helps extend the life of your skincare products.

Beauty experts have long suggested putting certain beauty products in the fridge to prolong the life of the product. K-Beauty company FaceTory has created a tiny cute pink fridge designed to hold your favorite skin masks, creams serums and more. The FaceTory fridge has a door shelf to hold sheet masks and three adjustable shelves to accommodate different sized containers.

The 10-liter fridge is also helpful for storing face oils and other products that are sensitive to sunlight. The temperature of the fridge can be adjusted from 48 to 32 degrees Fahrenheit and comes with an AC/DC cable.

The Facetory fridge is priced at $89 and is available at FaceTory.com and (I may get a commission from this link) Amazon. You can get a FREE fridge if you subscribe to FaceTory’s Annual 7 Lux Subscription.
