How to Apply Face Gems

A few gems add some sparkly drama to your makeup for a party or special event.

The rhinestones and gems used for nails designs work great on the skin. They are not sticky so you will need some glue to apply them.


How to Apply Face Gems

Lash Glue
Stick rhinestones and other nail gems on your skin with a little eyelash glue. 

If you are allergic to latex, read your labels on the eyelash glue. Most contain latex. Look for a non latex lash glue.

Petroleum Jelly
You can also use a little petroleum jelly, but gems are brushed off more easily than with eyelash glue.

Find nail art rhinestones and gems in dollar stores, drug and super stores and beauty supply stores. Amazon has a fantastic variety of nail art supplies.

How to open a stuck bottle of polish

Don't you hate when you try to open a nail polish bottle and it's stuck shut? Here are some remedies to get it to open.

Run the bottle under hot water for a couple minutes to loosen it up, dry it off and you should be able to open it.

Still stuck? Try a rubber jar opener or a rubber glove.

No luck? Turn the bottle upside down. Use a Q-tip saturated in polish remover to get between the neck of the bottle and the lid letting drops of remover drip inside the lid. Wrap a tissue around the bottle to catch the remover that will drip out when you turn it right side up. 

That should do it!

Now, clean up the bottle so it doesn't get stuck again. Use polish remover on cotton to clean up the old hardened polish on the bottle. 

Then, clean up the old hardened polish that is inside the top by using a Q-tip or an orangewood stick tipped with cotton soaked in polish remover.

Are Tresemme Products Tested on Animals?

I recently noticed something different on the labels of Tresemme products. The magic words "not tested on animals" are missing! Alberto Culver was the manufacturer. It is now Unilever.
 
 
I always liked Tresemme. The products were good, inexpensive and not animal tested. I won't use them now.  I contacted Tresemme by email to let them know my displeasure. The response from Unilever was a link explaining how they are working on alternatives to animal testing. Here is the link if you would like to read it.
 

If you too are unhappy that Tresemme is no longer not tested on animals, contact Unilever and let them know. Go to Tresseme.com to the contact us page and send them a message. We all need to speak up letting manufacturers know we don't want our beauty products tested on animals!  Here is a link to the contact page.

 
There are many other brands of hair products that are not tested on animals to choose from. I always loved Paul Mitchell products. Also, Organix hair products are a good alternative Tresemme products. You can find them right in your drug store, super store and grocery store.
 
Important!!! Please share this post to spread the word.
