Whats cheaper then Proactive and just as good?

Clearasil! Personally, when I tried Proactive, it just didn't work for me. Given I was using the old one, so it didn't have any crystal whatever in the formula, but what difference would that make?

Clearasil Stay Clean and Clearasil Ultra face wipes helped clear most of my acne in a few week, and that surprised me. With all the empty promises in commercials about how well something will work, I almost stopped believing. My sister tried Clearasil Ultra cream and I saw results in a week. So I tried it, and it worked well for me too! The solution gently clears pores of dirt and make-up, and smells nice!

Even so you have to remember that everyone has different skin type, so results may vary, but you should still try it. If you find this product does not work for you, don't stop searching!

The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars

I honestly don't know what to think about the song or the video (especially the video). I personal love Bruno Mars(what girl doesn't? Don't answer that.). He writes the sweetest songs... and he's cute. I don't think the song or the video are meant to be taken seriously (obviously...), but you have to admit they're odd. Even so they make me laugh. The song is funny, the video is entertaining, and the lyrics are... interesting, to say the least. Oh well. Can't wait for his next one!

All about nails

Do you like nail polish? Sparkly nail Polish? No? Then stop reading because this post is all about color and sparkles!

A good brand of nail polish would be L.A. Colors: Color Craze. They have a ton of colors and shades for everyones taste, sparkles included. If you don't like glittery nail polish (but who doesn't?), then they also have some plain, shiny colors too.

Along with making your nails look awesome, they also last! If you apply two layers, they will last for a good two weeks (given you treat your nails nicely) before they start chipping.

Before using any nail polish, be sure you take care of your nails! You can keep them string and healthy looking by moisturizing them with ether lotion or oil (sunflower oil or other). Also, with caring for your nails, look for products that use or contain keratin protein, because that is essentially what your nails are made of!

Fantastic Eco Shampoo

I found a really great shampoo and matching conditioner from a brand I always hated, but I must say I'm impressed! I like it for three reasons, It reduces dandruff, makes hair shiny, and is eco friendly!

I've always had a bit of dandruff problem(gross). I tried using Head and Shoulders, but it seemed to make things worse. Nothing worked for me, but then I found Garnier Pure Clean shampoo and conditioner. One of their new products. After a few days, the dandruff almost completely went away (hey, nothing's perfect)!

Along with getting rid of dandruff, it made my hair look healthier and shinier. Not greasy haven't-showered-for-a-month hair, but glossy smooth hair. For once my crazy hair looks good! And all for seven dollars.

Those two things aside, heres what sold it, 'eco friendly'. I'm a nature freak and I do what I can to help the environment, and the earth symbol caught my eye. Reading the label, heres what I found out:

  1. The product is 92% biodegradable
  2. Made out of 50% recycled plastic
  3. Doesn't have siliconeparaben or dye 
  4. And is infused with Acerola Berry antioxidant
What do you think of that? Try it!

The not so secret fat burning trick

NOTE: Not for major weight loss. 

   I just discovered a new trick for loosing weight, and it works! Want to know what it is? Of course you do! Well its simple really, all you have to do is get under a cold shower for at least thirty seconds. Unbelievable you say? Well I have some science to back me up (check the sources at the bottom of the page)!

    First of all, did you know that there are two types of fat? You have 'em both! They are known as white fat and brown fat

    White fat is the stuff you try to get rid of, the stuff in your thighs, butt, stomach and hips. This type of fat can be tough to loose as you probably know.

    Brown fat on the other hand is what helps heat your body by burning white fat cells. Great huh? It was thought that only babies carried around brown fat, but it turns out we never loose it! It's just dormant. Brown fat is stored in your chest, neck and back.

     Ever notice when you jump in a cold pool you feel like you're freezing, but after a while you 'get used to it'? You have your brown fat to thank for that. When your body gets cold, your brown fat cells act fast and burn your white fat cells to bring you back to ***homeostasis. Now does this make more sense?

    And as an added bonus, the process where your brown fat is burning white fat also detoxes your body, regulates your **endocrine glands (balancing hormones), decreases blood pressure, and increases immunity!

    You may still think that taking a cold shower would be difficult, but it's not! All you have to do is take your regular shower at your preferred temperature and do your usual shower stuff. By the end of your shower, slowly turn the hot water off, and then turn it off completely. Eventually you will get used to doing it and you'll be more comfortable staying under the cold water for longer periods of time.

    Doing this won't make you loose a lot of fat, but it will help guaranteed. It works for me, and I hope it works for you as well.

Great Ice cream

With the good weather coming, more and more people are going to start buying ice cream whether it be from places like Dairy Queen (best blizzards) or from local stores. I often go to these places, but sometimes I like to get creative. the Marble Slab Creamery is the absolute best place to buy good ice cream for many reasons. They have 47 high quality flavors from coffee to Peanut Butter (my personal favorite is birthday cake), for everyones taste preferences. The best part is the toppings available. You can get pop rockets, marshmallows, Skor  bits and more mixed into your ice cream (a total of 31 available toppings to choose from). You can even buy cakes or tubs of your favorite flavors! They also sell milkshakes and low fat yogurt for those of you who like that kind of stuff. Their ice cream is a little bit pricey, but I can tell you that it is worth it.
