As a big fan of both Lipstick Queen and tinted lip balms, you can just imagine how happy I am to be using the Lipstick Queen Belle Époque Tinted Lip Balms! They are thick, rich, hydrating, long-wearing and non-sticky. They boast the perfect amount of cushion for comfortable wear, and the antioxidant-rich formula offers a light veil of color and a luminous shine that is very flattering on the lips.

According to Lipstick Queen,

Belle Époque is a range of three hydrating and tinted balms that bathe the lips in nourishment and comfort, whilst adding a hint of colour.

Rich, non-sticky and instantly soothing, these balms are fortified with an algae extract rich in Omega 3, 6 and 9 as well as moisturizing Shea Butter and anti-oxidant Vitamin E.
With regular use, they improve moisture levels in the lips and minimize water loss thanks to Rice Lipids.

A subtle hint of flattering and wearable colour is the final Lipstick Queen touch for a beautifully natural lip look.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Haircare Picks for Curly Tresses

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

If you have curly hair, as do I, then you know the extent to which one truly needs to find products that are specifically designed to treat, nourish and style our naturally unruly tresses. One of my greatest discoveries has been Ouidad because they truly are the curl experts! Here are a few of my recent discoveries from their amazing range of gems for curly hair:
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo ($22.00 for 8.5 oz. from Ouidad): This effective shampoo thoroughly cleanses the hair without stripping it in the least bit. The sulfate-free formula is gentle, and does not rob hair of vital moisture. Additionally, it nourishes the hair, fights frizz and leaves hair silky smooth. This is a wonderful shampoo if you have wavy or curly hair that is prone to frizz and fly-aways!

According to Ouidad,

For curls, once frizz sets in, there's no going back (at least without re-washing your hair). For truly frizz-free, smooth, and shiny curls, you have to prevent frizz before humidity wreaks havoc on your hair.

With our new Advanced Climate Control® Defrizzing Shampoo, the fight against frizz starts in the shower. This unique sulfate-free formula keeps hair's cuticle sealed to lock nourishing moisture in, and frizz-causing humidity out. Our advanced blend of emollients (Shea Butter, Murumuru Butter) and Ceramides helps repair the cuticle and smooth its surface. Our high-performance Anti-Frizz Nano Technology with a protein derived from silk seals the cuticle to form a barrier against frizz. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from environmental aggressors.

The result: defined, shiny, controlled curls-in any climate.

Directions: Gently massage through wet hair. Rinse thoroughly and follow with Advanced Climate Control® Defrizzing Conditioner. Style curls with Advanced Climate Control® Detangling Heat Spray and Heat & Humidity Gel for lasting frizz protection.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Decyl Glucoside, Sericin, Ceramide NG, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Orbignya Oleifera Seed Oil, Panthenol, Polyquaternium-59, Polyquaternium-70, Amodimethicone, Lauryl Laurate, Polyquaternium-7, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Behentrimonium Chloride, Glycol Stearate, Dipropylene Glycol, PEG-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Trideceth-12, C20-40 Pareth-10, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Hydroxyethyl Behenamidopropyl Dimonium Chloride, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, PEG-40/PPG-8 Methylaminopropyl/Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone Copolymer, PEI-10, Synthetic Wax, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Phenoxyethanol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance (Parfum).

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner ($24.00 for 8.5 oz. from Ouidad): This is an ultra-emollient and moisturizing conditioner that hydrates dry hair, combats frizz and fly-aways,  detangles and leaves curls soft, smooth and shiny! It has a wonderful light fragrance, but it does fade quickly.

According to Ouidad,

It's a fact: Dry hair equals frizzy hair. That's because curls that lack moisture look to absorb it from anywhere they can get it-exposing them to frizz-causing humidity in the air. For truly frizz-free curls, you need care that helps balance their moisture levels.

With our new Advanced Climate Control® Defrizzing Conditioner, the fight against frizz starts in the shower. This unique formula hydrates curls and keeps hair's cuticle sealed to lock nourishing moisture in, and frizz-causing humidity out. Our advanced blend of emollients (Shea Butter, Murumuru Butter) and Ceramides helps repair the cuticle and smooth its surface. Our high-performance Anti-Frizz Nano Technology with protein derived from silk seals the cuticle to form a barrier against frizz. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from environmental aggressors.

The result: defined, shiny, controlled curls-in any climate.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Glycerin, Stearyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Sericin, Ceramide NG, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Panthenol, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Polyquaternium-59, Polyquaternium-70, Wheat Amino Acids, PEG-40/PPG-8 Methylaminopropyl/Hydroxypropyl Dimethicone Copolymer, Lauryl Laurate, Polyquaternium-7, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Chloride, Ceteareth-20, C20-40 Pareth-10, Hydroxyethyl Behenamidopropyl Dimonium Chloride, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Synthetic Wax, PEI-10, Dipropylene Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance (Parfum).
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel ($26.00 for 8.5 oz. from Ouidad): This lightweight gel protects hair from heated styling tools, fights frizz and fly-aways, and it offers weightless hold while defining curls. It doesn't flake, weigh hair down, or leave hair crunchy and unnatural looking and feeling. Most often I apply it to towel-dried hair, and then allow my hair to dry naturally.

According to Ouidad,

Humidity: It's every curl's nightmare. That's because curly hair's unique structure exposes its cuticle. When humidity gets in, curls expand with unwanted volume and look frizzy, undefined, and dull.

Our bestselling styler, Advanced Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel, gets you out of hair-raising situations. Use it to seal every strand, lock in moisture, and lock out humidity. Wheat Protein and pliable styling polymers form a weightless flexible lattice that expands as heat or humidity rises to hold curl definition without frizz. Our high-performance Anti-Frizz Nano Technology with a protein derived from silk seals the cuticle to keep essential moisture in and humidity out. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from environmental aggressors.

The result: Flexible hold that won't leave hair crunchy, sticky, or weighed down. Frizz-free, perfectly defined curls-in any climate.

Directions: Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. Divide damp hair into sections. Rake a nickel-size amount of gel through each section, using fingertips to seal and smooth the cuticle from roots to ends. When finished, hold the ends of hair in each section and shake to create curls. Let hair air-dry or blow-dry with a diffuser.

Expert Tip: Fighting frizz starts in the shower with Advanced Climate Control® Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner for better curl definition and longer lasting frizz protection.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, Polyquaternium-28, Sericin, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Panthenol, Polyquaternium-7, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Extract, Wheat Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, Glycerin, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Chloride, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Hexylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance (Parfum).

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray ($24.00 for 8.5 oz. from Ouidad): I am thoroughly obsessed with this detangling spray. It effectively fights humidity– which leads to unwanted frizz and fly-aways– and it moisturizes and detangles even the most unruly curly hair. While it is ultra-effective in protecting hair against the ravages of heat styling, it is also remarkably effective as a nourishing and hydrating detangler for hair that is allowed to dry naturally.

According to Ouidad,

Humidity: It's every curl's nightmare. That's because curly hair's unique structure exposes its cuticle. When humidity gets in, curls expand with unwanted volume and look frizzy, undefined, and dull.

Our Advanced Climate Control® Detangling Heat Spray primes curls to better resist frizz. Use it to seal every strand, fight tangles, and make curls more manageable. Our high-performance Anti-Frizz Nano Technology with a protein derived from silk seals the cuticle to form a barrier that locks in moisture and locks out humidity. Natural oils (Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Macadamia Nut, Coconut, Argan, and Safflower) nourish and moisturize curls, while a dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from heat styling and environmental aggressors.

The result: defined, shiny, controlled curls-in any climate.

Directions: Divide damp hair into sections. Spray on curls from mid-lengths to ends, and use a wide-tooth comb to detangle hair. Follow with Advanced Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel.

Expert Tip: Fighting frizz starts in the shower with Advanced Climate Control® Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner for better curl definition and longer lasting frizz protection.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua) Cetearyl Alcohol Butylene Glycol Dimethicone PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate Cetearyl Glucoside Sericin Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil Argania Spinosa Kernel (Argan) Oil Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol Polyquaternium-7 Behentrimonium Methosulfate Behentrimonium Chloride C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate Cetrimonium Chloride Cetyl Alcohol Distearyldimonium Chloride Glycerin Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hydrolyzed Corn Starch Citric Acid Disodium EDTA Caprylyl Glycol Phenoxyethanol Fragrance (Parfum).
Overall Assessment: If you have wavy or curly hair, then Ouidad is a line that you definitely need to try! A+

Tree of Life Serums | Giveaway and Review

 Press Sample (Affiliated Links)

I am so pleased to tell you about Tree of Life Serums, and am thrilled to announce that Tree of Life is generously hosting a GIVEAWAY exclusively for Lola's Secret Beauty Blog readers!

If you are seeking effective facial serums that address a variety of concerns, then you will want to read this article! To learn all about Tree of Life, click here.

Tree of Life Serum Combo Pack ($29.95 for three 1 oz. bottles from Tree of Life and Tree of Life Amazon Store): This combination pack includes the Tree of Life Vitamin C Serum, Tree of Life Retinol Serum and Tree of Life Hyaluronic Acid Serum.

Tree of Life Vitamin C Serum: Vitamin C-based serums are wonderful for brightening skin, gradually fading hyperpigmentation and softening the appearance of fine lines. This serum is feather-weight, fast absorbing and effective at the aforementioned. Furthermore, it possesses no discernible fragrance, and therefore will not pose a problem for people with fragrance sensitivities. Apply to clean skin, and if you use a toner apply this serum after the toner.

According to Tree of Life,

You will be hard-pressed to find another Vitamin C Serum which combines both organic and natural ingredients in such a way that your face feels smooth and refreshed the moment it touches your skin. Whether your face is already showing signs of aging or whether you are worried it might soon, our Organic ingredients help your skin fight fine lines, dark spots, and wrinkles no matter your age. This Vitamin C Serum cannot be beat.

Ingredients Vitamin C Serum: Aqua (Water), Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate (Vitamin C), Hamamelis Virginiana Water (Witch Hazel), Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide (botanical hyaluronic acid), Dimethyl Sulfone (MSM), Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Alo e Barbadensis Leaf Extract (Organic Aloe), Ferulic Acid, Glycerin (Kosher, Vegetable), Simondsia Chinensis Oil (Organic Jojoba), Centella Asiatica Extract (Organic Gotu Kola), Equisetum Arvense Extract (Horsetail), Taraxacum Officinale Extract (Dandelion), Geranium Maculatum Extract (Wild Geranium), SD Alcohol 40B, (2s)-2-Amino-5-guanidinopentanoic Acid, Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate Crosspolymer, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin.
Tree of Life Retinol Serum: This lightweight, fragrance-free, serum sinks into the skin quickly and leaves skin hydrated and soft immediately following application. This serum features 2% Retinol, and may dry your skin a bit– therefore you will want to use a nourishing face cream, and a high SPF sunscreen. I experienced no drying or peeling, but that is not to say that you won't. It does a very effective job in its ability to accelerate skin cell turn over, and reveal luminous skin.

According to Tree of Life,

With over 700 Clinical Studies showing Retinol's Anti Aging Effects, our Clinical Strength Retinol Serum helps turn back the clock of aging to give you smooth, refreshed skin. Our 72% Organic Retinol Serum helps counter the effects of skin-damage to give your skin a youthful shine while making it feel soft and rejuvenated. Your face will not only feel moisturized and refreshed, but it will look vibrant as our Anti Wrinkle Serum begins to take effect.

Suggested Use: Apply daily to clean face, neck and décolleté. If using a toner, apply toner before the serum. Allow time to dry. May be used under makeup. Retinol can dry skin, so follow with a moisturizer.

Active Ingredients: 72% ORGANIC | 98% NATURAL | 100% VEGAN | PARABEN FREE > Active Ingredients: 2% Retinol (Vitamin A), Botanical Hyaluronic Acid, Organic Jojoba Oil, Witch Hazel, Organic Green Tea, Vitamin E, and many other natural and organic ingredients.

Tree of Life Hyaluronic Acid Serum: If you have not yet discovered the miraculous benefits from using a Hyaluronic Serum, then this is certainly a great one to try. It is fragrance-free, lightweight and fast absorbing. Hyaluronic Acid radically helps skin retain moisture, but it also serves to plump fine lines and wrinkles. This serum can be used day or night on clean skin.

According to Tree of Life,

Helps skin retain up to 370% ore moisture than the collagen protein molecule. A well-known wrinkle reducer, Hyaluronic Acid is sometimes known as a "super moisturizer," helping reduce fine lines caused by dehydration. It is perfect for use with both Retinol and Vitamin C, and our 72% Organic mixture contains key moisturizers specifically formulated for use with both other products.

Suggested Use: Apply to clean, dry skin daily, or twice a week– depending on your skin type. Follow with moisturizer.

Tree of Life Ultimate Serum Nighttime ($24.95 for 1 oz. from Tree of Life and Tree of Life Amazon Store): This is a very active anti-aging nighttime serum that effectively brightens and hydrates the skin, exfoliates dead skin cells, and plumps fine lines and wrinkles. It has a herbal aroma that fades soon after the light weight and fast absorbing serum sinks into the skin. 

According to Tree of Life,

If you are looking for professional, high-end skin-care, you will be hard pressed to find a better anti- aging serum at a more affordable price. Our Ultimate line is packed with some of the strongest ingredients available, and with over 700 CLINICAL STUDIES vouching for some of our main ingredients, we guarantee this facial serum will satisfy you or we will refund your purchase price.

Makeup Wars! Drugstore Green Beauty Skincare Picks from Seabuck Wonders

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

When the Makeup Wars! Team decided to feature our favorite drugstore skincare picks, I decided to feature one of my favorite green beauty brands, Seabuck Wonders. Over the last few years I have received an increasing number of requests to feature more affordable eco-friendly skincare picks, and therefore this seemed like the perfect moment to highlight a really fantastic brand that is very affordable and easily accessible.

Why SeabuckWonders for your skin?

Antioxidants, vitamins A, E, beta-carotene, phytonutrients, and, of course, the all important omega fatty acids, such as Omega 3, 6, 9, and the rare 7 are all crucial components for beauty from the inside out. Sea buckthorn oil is a treasure chest of these nutrients and has been used as a secret beauty aid in Eastern Asia for over 1000 years. Taken internally or applied topically (or both!), sea buckthorn oil provides the necessary elements for ever-lasting beauty.
Seabuck Wonders Organic Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil ($34.97 for 1 oz. from Seabuck Wonders, AmazonWalgreens and Walmart): Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil is a potent antioxidant-rich oil that is loaded with vitamins. It is a regenerative and restorative oil that heals skin, combats fine lines and wrinkles, and is said to work wonders on eczema-prone skin. It has a multitude of uses topically, and some even take it orally– though I am not among them. This potent elixir leaves skin remarkably soft, supple and moisturized. It has a very earthy aroma that smells a lot like Vitamin E capsules to me.

According to Seabuck Wonders,

With Omegas-3, 6, 9, vitamins A and E, sea buckthorn seed oil stands out as the best plant based Omega-3 source. The complex nutritional components of sea buckthorn seed oil work together to create a much more potent product than other Omega-3 sources.

Vitamins A and E are powerful antioxidants in sea buckthorn seed oil. They can support immunity and provide support for inflammatory conditions. Antioxidants are known to support healthy white blood cell levels. Omega-3 is known to support heart health. Recent studies have shown that plant based Omegas may be just as effective as fish based Omegas in supporting heart health. Omega-3 is also known to support brain health and liver health. Sea buckthorn seed oil also works wonders as a topical treatment for skin support.

Features: USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Super Critical Extract, Hexane-Free
and Kosher Certified.
Seabuck Wonders Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Facial Cream ($19.97 for 1 oz. from Seabuck Wonders, Walmart and Amazon): What a glorious moisturizer this is!
