MARCIA IS USING THE VINTAGE COSMETIC COLLECTION HAIR TURBAN AND SHOWER CAP

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap and Hair Turban

These two products are making shower time even more fun. Whether I decide to wash my hair or give it another day of rest The Vintage Cosmetic Company has the right tool for me and at the right price.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap and Hair Turban

Since I no longer wash my hair daily I need something to keep it from getting wet and a shower cap is the right solution. Not only is The Vintage Company Shower Cap ($6.99) cute as can be but it’s super comfortable.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap

(I tuck my hair in and don’t wear my glasses, I promise!) The outer material is 100% polyester and silky soft while the inside has a PEVA lining that keeps your hair dry as can be. My favorite part of this cute peach cap is how it’s not tight and doesn’t leave marks around my face. I can take a quick shower and not have to worry about it leaving telltale signs behind. There’s also a flowered version for more 50’s glamour.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Peach Shower Cap

I’m really happy with the Vintage Company Hair Turban ($7.99). I needed one so badly and this exceeds my expectations. This machine washable towel looks like terry but it’s made of absorbent microfibers so it soaks up moisture quickly.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Hair Turban

What makes this different from all others I have is the closure. If you look above you’ll see a loop on the left and buttons on the right. Once you’ve twisted it closed you then secure the towel with those two. I can do anything around my house without it falling off. I just made a dish that takes an hour to bake. I had my turban on while combining the ingredients and sticking it in the oven. It stayed on perfectly. Other days I’ve left it on for a few minutes while I get ready to blow dry. Either way it’s fabulous. I already have this on my list to take on my winter cruise.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Hair Turban

Since my hair is shoulder length I use the second button while those with shorter or finer hair would use the first. One size fits all. One head of hair dried more quickly. This doesn’t pull at all and is amazingly comfortable. You need this in your life!!

LISA IS USING THE VINTAGE COSMETIC COLLECTION MAKEUP MELTS, MAKEUP HEADBAND AND MANICURE PURSE

The Vintage Cosmetic Company

Makeup Melts ($14.95) are wash cloths that remove makeup without any cleanser. Just get it wet, then gently scrub face in a circular motion. It really does remove all traces of makeup! The washcloth is definitely full of makeup after, so you pop it into the washing machine and it comes out looking fabulous and ready for another go.

The bow is elastic so it keeps everything securely in place, but it’s nice and soft so it doesn’t hurt your head or pull your hair.  I absolutely love this.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Manicure Purse

My final adorable product is the Manicure Purse ($10.95), a compact manicure purse that comes in four different patterns. I have the pink striped one with pink lining. Isn’t it the bees knees??  The Vintage Cosmetic Company Manicure Purse

The SPA SHOWER CAP is the cutest and most substantial shower cap I’ve ever had the pleasure of using. I only wash my hair a few times a week so a shower cap is a necessity for me when taking a shower. How great is it to get out of your shower and see yourself saying HELLO GORGEOUS! Ain’t that the truth.

Wet the cloth and rub it outwardly across your face and neck. Rewet the cloth, squeeze and let the cosmetics go down the drain. Keep doing that until the water runs clear.

Now to exfoliate turn it to the other side and repeat but this time add your facial cleanser onto the Wipeout Cleansing Cloth. Now use it going INWARDS on your face. So you’re going in the opposite direction to very gently exfoliate. There’s nothing harsh about it. When you’ve squeezed out the water just hang it to air dry.

Let’s not forget your body and for that there’s the KISSABLES EXFOLIATING MITT. While this can be used on your face too it’s your body that’s going to love this gentle but efficient exfoliation mitt.

I love this and love that I can use this over and over again. The mitt fits securely but not tightly over your hand. You have the option of using a cleanser or just lukewarm water. Rub it over your skin and you’ve quickly exfoliated. You’ll be surprised how many layers of dead skin will be removed without you feeling uncomfortable.

The mitt itself is 100% Viscose and feels gentle against your skin but don’t worry since it has a job and it does that job well. If you have ingrown hairs expect them to be long gone after this Exfoliating Mitt.

A Quick Guide to Stocking Stuffers!What makes for a good stocking stuffer?  Here are the 6 golden rules:

  4. Make it pretty….gorgeous gifts make for big squeals of delight.
