My Sculptshe picks

April 18, 2021 0 Comments

Hello everyone!


Today’s post is another fashion related post.   We all know the confidence that the perfect outfit can give us, however, the underwear and/or shapewear that is worn underneath, is even more important to make us look and feel our best.  Shapewear is basically underwear that is designed to temporarily alter the shape of your body, typically to flatten the stomach and make you look slimmer in the outfit you're wearing on top of it.  I was recently introduced to Sculptshe - a brand that mainly focuses on women’s shapewear, bodysuits, waist trainers and activewear; garments that are break-through in their design, manufacturing techniques and materials.


One of the many consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the many lockdowns, is the fact that many of us have gained some weight; mainly due to stress-eating and watching too much Netflix (lack of physical activity).  Luckily, on Sculptshe’s website, you can find various waist and thigh trainers to enhance your appearance.  Such as the Sculptshe 3-in-1 Waist Thigh Eraser Booty Sculptor, linked below (click on the pictures to visit the site).

This 3-in-1 garment will trim your waist, and help you reduce the appearance of cellulite on your thighs as well.


And since we’re on the topic of shapewear, check out my two picks below…

Sculptshe Seamless Mesh Tummy Control Butt Lifter Shorts


These shorts are made for those who want to be comfortable and not constrained by their shapewear.  Make with lightweight medium control fabric that gives you the perfect shaping you need.

Let me know if you heard of this site before and, your thoughts about shapewear!  Maybe you have one (or a few) in your wardrobe already or you plan to buy one soon.  So visit Sculptshe to find the best shapewear for tummy (your tummy).   


XOXO, Cosette

Beauty heck | Baby shampoo as a face wash

April 15, 2021 2 Comments
Hello everyone!

Today I want to share a little heck with you.  A week ago, I started using Johnson's Baby Chamomile Shampoo instead of my regular facial cleanser.  I always favoured a foaming face wash over a milky or creamy cleanser.  I used it a few times as an eye makeup remover and decided to try and wash my face with it and see what happens.  

Some of the products out there are too harsh and strip all the natural oil from the face.  I also tend to be a little sceptical of products with very long ingredients lists.  Here's the ingredient list of  Johnson's Baby Chamomile Shampoo:

Aqua, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Decyl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Polyquaternium-10, Coconut Acid, Glycerin, Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, PEG-80 Sorbitan Laurate, PEG-150 Distearate, Sodium Chloride, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, BHT, Sodium Benzoate, Parfum 

Johnson's baby shampoo is free from dyes, parabens, phthalates, sulphates, alcohol, and soap and has been proven to be gentle to use on babies and young children.  Baby shampoo is tear-free, so you can rub around your eyes without worrying about burning or irritation.  This makes it an excellent eye makeup remover; it's especially good at taking off stubborn mascara and pencil in the waterline.  If you are sensitive to fragrances and want to try this heck, choose a fragrance-free or unscented baby shampoo.

If you try it and do not like it, or it does not work for your skin you can; 
  • Use it to clean your makeup brushes and sponges.
  • Replace your shaving cream with it.
  • Wash your dog with it (or any other pet).  I use it to wash my pup's tear stains!  When I used to have guinea pigs I used to wash them with baby shampoo too.

I'm going to try it for a month to give it a fair shot.  You need to use a product for roughly a month before you can see a difference.  So far, it's working just as well as any other facial wash.  It's not too drying and leaves my skin soft and dewy, but not oily.

Have you ever tried baby shampoo as a face wash?  Did you like it?  Leave a comment and let me know!

XOXO, Cosette

Hello everyone!

This is just a quick blog post to wish all my fellow Catholics and my Christian brothers and sisters a blessed and meaningful Easter/Resurrection Sunday!  

He is Risen

Christ’s empty grave is proof that no matter how bad things may seem, there is always hope for a new day.  May God revive all your dreams and hopes this Easter.
