How I curl my hair with my favorite @bioionicla GoldPro 1" curling iron As you all can probably tell from the video, my hair is extremely fine/thin. I literally only have to do like 10 curls, and I've styled all my hair already. With that being said, I usually shy away from heating products because I don't like the idea of damaging the little hair that I have ♀️ But ever since I got this curling iron...I actually love curling my hair and love the results that it gives me.
Now I usually prep my hair by adding a dime-sized amount of my @briogeo Rosarco Heat Protectant Creme to my damp hair. Then I curl with this curling iron (making sure to curl away from my face), and seriously, it still leaves my hair feeling super soft/hydrated and gives it that natural sheen. Also my curls will last ALL day long, and they usually even still look pretty good the next day. SO if you're looking for a new curling iron, I definitely recommend trying this one because I'm in love! #bioionic
BB CREAM SECOND IMPRESSIONS! Today I used the All in One BB Cream ($22CAD) by @thebodyshop - I really disliked this product when I did my first impressions a few months ago. This is a color adapting BB cream, it is actually pretty cool to see it instantly change color as it is white before it is blended into the skin. Here are my thoughts on the shade 01 - It couldn't be more different than the shade I did my first impressions on.
First of all - this product is not cheap compared to the countless other BB creams on the market. The shade I tested for my first impressions (00) was extremely sheer, felt greasy on my face & redness/flaws were highlighted - a disaster . Shade 01 did not do this - it matched me perfectly but did not exentuate any flaws on my skin, and actually had quite a bit more coverage than shade 00. Not sure why there is this anomaly in the range, but 01 performed much better than 00.
The coverage was light but not too sheer. It still had a somewhat oily feel to it, but once set on the face that does mostly go away, especially after powder. Today I only wore the BB Cream with my @covergirl Advanced Radiance Powder ontop to set it and I was happy with how my skin looked and felt. Everything was evened out and it didn't look patchy + my skin felt soft and hydrated all day.
Application was easy and very quick, I blended it in with my hands (as per instructions) but made sure everything was perfect with my beauty blender. This product is perfect for days when ya gotta be flying out the door quickly It wore well through the day and didn't look bad after 8 hours, although my skin was starting to get oily.
Overall, I was pretty happy with it, but for the price I still don't think this product is worth it. There are better BB creams for less money on the market, and also there are a few from higher end brands that aren't much more expensive either. I still prefer my @elizabetharden Visible Difference BB Cream - better coverage and finish and doesn't feel oily. It is also only $6 more - I'd rather spend the little bit extra to be honest. This product isn't a fail, I just think there are better options on the market for less money.
