#DJRLive Q&A Session 10 | Daisi Jo Reviews Facebook Live


Is it so cliche for me to say, “ I can’t believe it’s almost the end of the year?” Probably so! It’s November 1rst, and so begins the countdown to the New Year filled with holiday music, lots of yummy treats and of course, gifts!

Honestly, I’m a bit tense looking towards the next several weeks. We’re moving in less than 7 days and a quick few weeks after that, we’re off to the east coast for business combined with the holidays.  Not to mention the tons of work I have with Daisi Jo Reviews and My Product Model over the coming weeks. On next weeks Daisi Jo Reviews, I’ll be doing a new apartment tour so be sure to check it out! 


Here’s the rundown of the Q&A Session on Daisi Jo Reviews Live: 

- What is the difference between body mist and perfume? And also body lotion and body cream?

- What are some homemade ointments recipes to help reduce darkness in lips?

Do you look taller after going to the gym? I'm 5′6. Will I appear taller, or shorter, after going to the gym?

- What are the best tips to remove adhesive from your skin?

- Can someone give a good workout plan to stay thin while I eat whatever, and as much as I want?

           



What is the difference between body mist and perfume? And also body lotion and body cream?
Basically, the difference between body mist and perfume is the concentration of perfume oils. In perfumes, the main ingredient is the perfume oils and in body mist the main ingredients is a mixture of water, alcohol, other ingredients and a small percent (2-3%) of perfume oils. As for body lotion and body creams; body creams are much heavier and contain a higher viscosity. Body lotions absorb much quicker and typically have a higher water content.

What are some homemade ointments recipes to help reduce darkness in lips?

Darkness in lips can be both a natural pigmentation or a result of excess dead skin cells on the lips. If you have naturally dark lips than there isn’t much you can do to lighten them. However, if you have dead skin buildup on your lips, the most all natural and easy to make ointment recipe for reducing darkness in lips is a mixture of brown raw sugar, lemon, and olive oil. 

Do you look taller after going to the gym? I'm 5′6. Will I appear taller, or shorter, after going to the gym?


The short answer is, “Yes”. Working out can make you look taller but it can also make you look stockier depending on which exercises and which areas of the body you are training. For example, if you are doing yoga or pilates, then you will typically look taller because the exercises make your body look longer and leaner. If you are lifting heavy weights to build bulkier muscles than you may look shorter and stalkier. The results also depend on your natural body type. 

What are the best tips to remove adhesive from your skin?

I feel this question is very timely being that it’s the day after Halloween. Baby oil is a great substance for removing adhesives from your skin. If you need additional help for removing extra sticky adhesive, taking a warm bath and then using ice on the sticky area will also help.

Can someone give a good workout plan to stay thin while I eat whatever, and as much as I want?

There’s no foolproof way to avoid gaining weight if you are consuming more daily calories than you typically do without also increasing your daily output of energy whether that be daily activities, working out and so forth. A general plan that should help anyone would include increasing the workout plan you already use, adding in extra walks, drinking additional water throughout the day and watching the amount of food you’re consuming in each sitting.

This Is #LMxCATT


This was a pretty busy weekend! I recently became an Ambassador to the Women Like Us Foundation and it’s been so intense that I haven’t been able to give it a formal announcement on any of my sites but stay tuned - it’s coming! On Saturday, I attended the LMxCATT launch party for the Jacki bag created by Catt Sadler and Lulu Eschelman benefiting the Women Like Us Foundation. It was a beautiful event hosted at the La Piazza Ristorante at The Grove. I was joined by a few other Ambassadors @jessicarossofficial, @pamelaquinzi and @nadyarousseau 



The Jacki bags are custom, one of a kind exclusive bags made from luxuriously soft peddled leather, gunmetal hardware and lined with soft black microsuede. The special edition Jacki bag was designed  in memory of  Jackline Korinko, a victim of female genital mutilation. 




Fifty percent of all purchases of the Jacki bag will go to support the Women Like Us Foundation. Each Jacki bag features a unique beaded design on each strap that was hand beaded by the girls at The Olmalaika Home in Kenya. With each purchase of this special edition Jacki bag, the funds will go to building a new and improved washroom, new utility sinks and new shower stalls.   



#DJRLive Q&A Session 9 | Daisi Jo Reviews Facebook Live


Have you ever ran to your doctors appointment? That was me today -  I literally ran to my cardiologist appointment just so I could go live on time today.  It almost didn’t happen. I had a doctors appointment scheduled for 10am which cuts it very close to getting seen by the doctor and getting out of there fast enough to get home and press "live" on my channel but I made it - sweat and all!

On today’s live cast, I answer a few more questions for Daisi Jo Reviews readers and viewers.

                                     


"Should you just apply sunscreen on the top of your skin, or should you rub it in?” - Angel
As I mentioned in my Facebook Live video, you shouldn’t rub sunscreen into you skin in a vigorous manner like you would if you were trying to scrub something off of your face. Spray on sunscreens don’t need to be rubbed in at all. I only use one  brand of sunscreen, Coola because it’s organic and all natural. 


How can I get rid of pimples and scars from my face? - Tami
If you’re getting scars from picking your pimples than you should stop doing that immediately because it’s damaging your skin. Most of the damage may be short term with the discoloration fading as time passes but picking at your pimples can also cause long term/permanent damage i.e. hyper-pigmentation. In the Facebook Live session, I talk about using bentonite clay masks, ACV (apple cider vinegar) and other all natural remedies for removing dark spots and discoloration.  


What are the best eyeshadow primers for oily and really dark eyelids? - Jina
The purpose of eyeshadow primer is to prevent your eyeshadow from creasing and by extension your concealer too. Another purpose of eyeshadow primer is to enhance and prolong the pigment, true color payoff and intensity of your eyeshadow. Two of my favorite eyeshadow primers are Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion and Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer


Is there any chance to have a better body after just 3 weeks of workout? - Russ

Yes, but it all depends on where you are starting from. If you haven’t exercised in years than you’ll probably see some immediate results. If you’ve been active but feel like your results have kind of plateaued, than you most likely won’t see results unless you change your workout - in which you may see results within 3 weeks. In some cases the more fit you are, the more complex it is to see physical changes beyond your base level. 


Why am I suddenly feeling lightheaded during my weightlifting workout? -Barbara
A few reason that you’re experiencing lightheaded  could be from low blood sugar because you’re burning through glycogen, dehydration because working out causes you to loose water through perspiration and/or mineral loose such as sodium. When you sweat you loose sodium in addition to water lose.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation Review

Daisi Jo Reviews Makeup Forever Ultra HD Liquid Foundation (Y405, Golden Honey)

I grew up with the makeup education that no one is ever supposed to see your foundation and I think in most cases this still holds true in everyday life and in some aspects of industry work. Foundations have always been used to create looks and artistic creations for Film and Television. However today, that has expanded to Youtube, Instagram, and even your everyday life. So having a powerful foundation like Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation used to be reserved for those who spent their lives in front of the camera. Now it’s reasonable for every girl to have it.

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation is extremely lightweight considering the level of invisible coverage it provides. It’s easy to forget that you’re wearing a foundation. Yet the foundation provides decent coverage even with one layer making it realistic to wear on a daily basis. Like the original formula, the foundation is still oil-free, provides buildable coverage, and is good for day or night makeup looks. 

The new formula, however, is 4K friendly and is packed with amino acid coated pigments, hyaluronic spheres for hydration to plump the skin and Sericite which creates a fine-grained mica that improves microcirculation. Beware, it does not contain sunscreen. It’s best applied with either a beauty blender or a stippling brush. I prefer to use my stippling brush to build coverage and then using my buffing brush to blend around the hairline, ears, and neck. 




I find it to be great for camera work for a very natural look and a full coverage look. Due to the price tag, $43 (MSRP), I prefer not to use it for my day to day makeup but it is great for flawless photos on Instagram. The foundation does dry fast so you need to be quick if you’re planning on building for more coverage. 

The packaging is pretty lightweight, clean and simplistic. I found the box to be rather flimsy but I like that I can toss the foundation bottle in my makeup bag and really not think about it. Several people have complained about the lid popping off but I haven’t had that experience. 

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Liquid Foundation
My main drawbacks are that the foundation pumps out very running. What I learned is that it has to do with the texture and finish of the shade.  I have shades Y405 (Golden Honey), Y445 (Amber), and Y505 (Cognac). Y405 (Golden Honey) is the runniest of the three. Amber (Y445) and Cognac (Y505) have much more of a thicker consistency. There are 40 different shades in the line. Golden Honey (Y405) matches my complexion most accurately but during the summer months, I do need to mix them. Cognac (Y505) is a bit on the darker side so I use it for a natural contoured look. Below is the complexion guide:
