CapriClear Spray On Moisturizer Review and Reader Giveaway


capriclear spray on moisturizer review

Dry skin. Hate it! I am always open to try something new to fight dry skin and was just introduced to CapriClear Spray On Moisturizer. CapriClear is unique in that it is a 100% coconut oil spray. BUT, that coconut oil is fractionated, which means it brings you all the benefits of coconut oil in its purest form, but without scent, color, preservatives or staining.

CapriClear Spray On Moisturizer is hypoallergenic and has lots of “NOs” (the good kind of NOs). They include:

NO Fragrance
NO Artificial Color
NO Mineral Oil
NO Parabens
NO Phthalates
NO Gluten

I like that CapriClear is in a convenient spray-on bottle that creates a light mist, leaving just a nice, light layer on your skin. It makes it easy to coat large areas, like your legs, in a hurry. It quickly dries and makes my skin feel soft an silky, but not greasy. It has lots of uses too. You can use it on your skin, nails and cuticles and hair. It is also good for scars and stretch marks.


Reader Giveaway: One lucky Jinxy Beauty reader will win their own CapriClear Spray On Moisturizer. To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 10/8/14. Good luck!

Save the Undies with U by Kotex – Request a FREE Sample


Save the Undies

Let’s talk about the fashion we wear underneath the fashion – in other words – UNDIES! Do you have a favorite pair of undies?  Or do you have a bunch of different favorites – one for each type of occasion? Or do your favorites change by season? Now that fall is here are you switching from your skimpy summer undies to a boy short?

I personally have several different favorites when it comes to undies.  There are the comfy, yet still cute, cotton undies that I wear most days when I’m working at home, running errands, walking the dog, etc.  There are the “step up” panties I like to wear when I’m dressing up or feeling frilly.  Then there are the “special purpose” panties like those that are perfect under clingy outfits for avoiding panty lines or the extra comfortable, stretchy, stay-in-place panties for exercise.

Seven Easy Tips to Repair Your Summer-Damaged Hair

disclosure affiliate links

Summer was awesome, but those sunny days lounging by the pool, exploring the great outdoors, hitting the beach and traveling far and wide have all been harsh on your hair.  Here are a few easy tips to repair your summer-damaged hair and get it back into shape.

Seven Easy Tips to Repair Your Summer-Damaged Hair

1. Turn Down the Heat
Your tresses have been suffering the summer heat all season long. Give them a break by using a cooler hair dryer setting for a bit while your hair recuperates.

2. Stash the Irons
Try out some of the new fall styles that don’t require a flat or curling iron. Your hair will thank you, and you might find a look you like even better than your current style.

3. Get a Trim
After all the sun, wind, and chlorine it’s a wonder you have any nutrients left in your hair – and the result is split-ends and frizz. Getting a little trim is an easy way to start fresh for the fall.

4. Avoid Alcohol
…in your hair products that is. If you’re hair is already feeling dry and dehydrated, using styling products that have alcohol in them, like gel, will make your hair even more brittle.

5. Get a Good Brush
Use a boar bristle brush to brush your hair thoroughly at least once a day. This will help distribute your hair’s natural oils throughout your tresses and help your hair heal any damage on its own.

6. Do Some Deep Conditioning
It can be as easy as leaving a deep conditioner in instead of rinsing it out or trying out a new hair masque. Either way, your hair needs this like a cool drink of water on the hottest summer day.

7. Use a Healthier Hair Color
Looking to darken your shade for the fall? A lot of permanent hair color formulas contain ammonia, resorcinol, PPDs and alcohol, all of which can damage your hair far beyond what it’s already been through this summer. Give your hair a nutrient boost instead with Madison Reed hair color. We don’t use any of those chemicals! Instead we pack our salon-quality formula with naturally-derived ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root extract for vibrant, long-lasting color in your favorite fall shades.

Add Color to Your Fall Wardrobe with Monroe and Main + Reader Giveaway

This is a Fashionista Event Opportunity, and is hosted by Still Blonde after all these YEARS and Modly Chic.

Tracy Dress from Monroe and Main 1

Fall is here!  Well, it’s almost here weather-wise, and it is definitely here fashion-wise!  As the weather starts to cool and the leaves begin to change color, it’s time to add some color to our wardrobes too!  It’s the perfect time of year to add some fun pops of rich color to your clothing to make bold statements or add chic accents.  This can be something as small as a statement necklace or a richly colored bag, to something all over like a deep red or purple dress.

I’m starting out my fall wardrobe with a subtle blend of color in the Tracy Dress from Monroe and Main. The elegant pattern features a deep purple color that stands out on the muted gray fabric.

Screen Shot 2014-08-24 at 12.47.58 PM

Can I say how much I love this dress!  First of all I’m thrilled with the fit.  It is nice and curve-hugging, but definitely not too va-va-voom.  And it is extremely comfortable!  We’re talking p.j. worth comfort.  I could sleep in this thing!

One of my favorite parts of the dress is the side gathers.  It adds such a note of interest and adds to the flattering shape as well.

Tracy Dress from Monroe and Main Detail

The other big positive of the Tracy dress by Monroe and Main is that it is versatile enough to go from dressy to casual.  I went from the more dressy, business-meeting-worthy look above, to a more casual out for the day look below.

Tracy Dress from Monroe and Main Casual 2

For the more casual work, I complimented the Tracy dress with Embroidered Ankle Boots and a Studded Leather Side Bag, both from Monroe and Main.  And I’ll even be ready when that extra-cold winter weather hits, simply by adding a long black sweater to the ensemble.

The Tracy Dress is made of Rayon/Spandex and is machine washable.  It has a length of 43″.
