Shespeaks is an online community created for women, with forums to discuss products, books, health and wellness, beauty, etc. By being a part of this program, I sometimes get the opportunity to received products for free to test, review, and give my opinion on my blog. I recently received some products by Mèreadesso Woman – skincare line – that I actually had never heard of, so I was excited to test it out.Mèreadesso Woman is beauty regime, but without much of the, well, regime. Loved this quote from their site/press materials:”When Linda Stephenson – a former cosmetics executive – grew weary of her own beauty regime, things could have gotten ugly. Instead, they got ridiculously good-looking.” (Kind of reminds me of Zoolander–haha)Linda used her degrees in Chemistry and Botany to create Mèreadesso Woman – a simple skincare line with minerals, antioxidants, vitamins, and botanicals. Mèreadesso’s Face + Neck Cleanser is… is a website that has great tips and advice on hair -especially managing frizz and curls. One of their more recent articles talks about one of the newer hair treatments – bull semen. Yes, that’s right – it’s called Aberdeen Organic Bull Semen Treatment, and the protein is supposed to hydrate and lock in moisture and shine. It’s a 45 minute hair treatment, that has become all the rage in London, and costs about $90-$140. Read the whole article at

Joshua Bernard is a hairstyle out of Houston and President of Retro-Chic International. His hair care products utilize the first ever Vitamin Enriched Microencapsulation Conditioning System. I got the opportunity to test out the Retro-Chich Shampooing Potion.This shampoo works well on all hair types, including chemically treated or colored hair (which mine is). It smells sooo good, and the consistency is thick and creamy, making me feel like it is moisturizing and cleaning and the same time. The bottle is super chic looking and still holds a good 12 ounces of shampoo. It has a natural and maximum color protection formula, vitamins, and anti-oxidants, which made me feel like it was really protecting my hair. After rinsing it out, my hair felt clean and healthy. It’s a great professional quality shampoo to use on a daily basis. You can find Retro-Chic by Joshua products at Check out their product…

I recently got the chance to test and review Bic’s new Soliel Bella disposable razors. Unlike other razors, Bic’s Soleil Bella has 4 blades instead of 3. The moisture strip on the razor is enriched with coconut milk and really makes for a smooth shave. It also has a pivoting head to help get every angle. The razor also has “e-z rinse” technology which allows water to clean out the blades more efficiently. The handle is super comfy because of its rubber grip. They come in tropical colors of blues and greens, hence the name Soleil Bella – Soleil meaning sun and Bella meaning beautiful in French. For about $6 for the set of 3 razors, you really can’t beat the price – and you might even be able to find coupons online for it! I definitely recommend giving these a try!
