Lorac CC Cream


 Lorac CC Cream

So I’m sure you have heard of BB creams. Well BB creams are great and all, but have you heard of a CC cream? I’m sure you’re thinking, are we doing down the alphabet? Yes, because I have heard of a DD cream.  Before we end up going through the alphabet let’s talk about Lorac CC Cream.

What is a CC Cream?

The CC in CC creams stands for color correcting.  If you have redness and imperfections this will be great for you.  It’s natural looking and dries semi-matte.

What does CC Cream do?

What I love most about CC creams is that they are a multi-purpose product. This cc cream  neutralizes, primes, moisturizes, brighten smooth skin, and make your skin look healthy and youthful. As a mom a anything  that can cut down on time, as well as products used it like heaven on earth.

Who can use/ benefit from a CC Cream?

Absolutely everyone! The Lorac CC Cream in particular is one of the ONLY cc creams formulated for sensitive skin.  It’s oil, silicone, paraben and fragrance free.

What is my final thought on this product?

As I stated above any multi- purpose product that will cut down on time and use of multiple products is genius to me. I do find that this product is very bendable and easily absorbed into the skin.  I will say when applying you have to work in small areas, because the CC cream does dry pretty quickly. The products dries to a  semi-matte finish. I received my shade in CC3 which is the darkest of the shades; it is a little light, but I find that the color being light doesn’t seem to be a problem once I have foundation on. Overall I like this product, I don’t Love it. The formula is great, the products does what it’s formulated to do. It is definitely colored corrects.  It’s very cooling and refreshing to the skin. It seems to be a good base of foundation. It doesn’t oxidize, crease or slip off the skin.

 Any Suggestions?

My biggest peeve is that a lot of companies don’t cater to dark to deep kin tones. Us brown girls need products love, too! With that being said, I would LOVE it if it was a closer color to my skin tone. If I could give any suggestion it would be to add a wider range of color. Other than that it’s an overall great product.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to hear what I have to say, it means a lot!

Review & Demo│ Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

So it’s no secret that I love makeup, but there is actually more to the story. I’m obsessed with mascara. Yes, obsessed. If there is a new mascara I am one of the first people to get my hands on it. If I LOVE it I will tell everyone I know that they need to try it. Well, ladies, I have found a new LOVE and It’s the Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara. Not only did I do a review of the amazing drugstore gem, but I also filmed a demo of how to apply it. See the video below!



Rimmel London Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara


Texture & Pigmentation  Thinking of a “fiber” mascara, usually I think of visable fibers that you can see in the mascara.  This mascara isn’t like this at all. It’ never clumps, and stays flexible all day. The mascara comes in two different colors  Black & Extreme Black. The pigmentation in this product is AMAZING. I have the extreme black and my lashes are super black when I wear this mascara. I don’t find this mascara to be either a wet or dry formulation. It’s been a perfect formulation of both in my opinion.

Staying Power  Let’s just say this mascara has great staying power. It will last all day with flaking at all.  Oh and don’t forget the Grow-Lash Complex of Procapil®, Keratin and Antioxidants, lashes are conditioned day after day. After 30 days, lashes appear longer, stronger and more numerous!

HBL Volumizing System Review & Giveaway

Volumizing System

Are you a Real Housewife Fan like me? Well, if you are then, I’m sure you know who Gretchen Rossi is, and I’m sure you are in LOVE with her gorgeous hair. Well, I bet you didn’t know that is uses the HBL Volumizing System. In fact she is the face of HBL Haircare. I LOVE Gretchen’s hair, and I was super excited when I got the opportunity to review the HBL Volumizing System.

Like most women, I’m always searching for a great hair care products. With all of the coloring, straightening, and teasing I do to my hair, It’s pretty healthy, and I have to thank HBL  the Volumizing System for that! I was sent three AMAZING products I’m going to introduce. HBL Revoew The HBL Volumizing Shampoo, has been the most AMAZING shampoo I have used in a LONG time.  I normally only wash my hair twice a week. I know some of you are saying GROSS, but I honestly,  I can’t wash it anymore them that or it gets greasy, and really weighted down. I did notice with the HBL shampoo it was gentle enough that if I did wash my hair more often I didn’t have that problem. This shampoo has jojoba oil in it which moisturizes, ans improves elasticity, while the keratin naturally repair, and naturally strengthens the hair. I also, could definitely notice the difference in volume too! HBL review I also received the HBL Volumizing Conditioner, which has a ph of 4.5-5.5. It creates smooth, fuller, and more manageable hair! I could tell a HUGE difference in how smooth and silky my hair was after the first use. I have really frizzy hair so I was really impressed by how this conditioner preformed. Vitamins A, B and E act as a natural anti-oxidant, while the Panthenal thickens, moisturizes the hair shaft, and the silk proteins seal and smoothes the cuticle creating a  more volumized, thicker fuller hair.

HBL hair masque

Oh, honey I saved the best for last! I am in LOVE with this HBL Hair masque for many reasons. But, I will save you from the rambling about obsessive  love, I have for HBL Hair masque. Now, when I tell you I have tangled hair, I mean it’s a mess. I can literally put a quarter sized amount of the HBL Hair masque on the ends of my hair where it gets tangled. And within five minutes I can run my finger through my hair like BUTTER!! It’s GENIUS!! I can use it every day, without weighing my hair down. It smoothes, condition, and protects without leaving my hair feeling greasy. Here’s the best part this stuff lasts forever. I have been using the same jar since May, and I still have about a quarter of the jar left.

Ladies, this is the best part HBL has offered to give one  lucky Glamorously Mommy reader a HBL Volumizing System with a retail value of $62.90!!! All you have to do is FOLLOW GlamorouslyMommy.com.This giveaway will be open for two weeks, and is open to the US only. Here is how to enter:
