Sephora's unique, open-sell environment features an ever-increasing amount of classic and emerging brands across a broad range of product categories including skincare, color, fragrance, body, smilecare, and haircare, in addition to Sephora's own private label. 

Today, Sephora is not only the leading chain of perfume and cosmetics stores in France, but also a powerful beauty presence in countries around the world. 

To build the most knowledgeable and professional team of product consultants in the beauty industry, Sephora developed "Science of Sephora." This program ensures that our team is skilled to identify skin types, have knowledge of skin physiology, the history of makeup, application techniques, the science of creating fragrances, and most importantly, how to interact with Sephora's diverse clientele. 

Owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the world's leading luxury goods group, Sephora is highly regarded as a beauty trailblazer, thanks to its unparalleled assortment of prestige products, unbiased service from experts, interactive shopping environment, and innovation. 

Sephora stores – Sephora operates approximately 1,900 stores in 29 countries worldwide, with an expanding base of over 360 stores across North America.

Measure Pro IRT20 Temperature Gun

My husband has been asking for one of these for awhile now.... I received this one for free in exchange for my honest review. The infrared temp gun is amazing. It actually uses laser technology. MeasuPro offers a unique version of the infrared thermometer to make it easy to get a precise temperature reading with no direct surface contact necessary. Using advanced laser technology, you can aim the temperature gun on any spot and get an accurate reading even on moving targets. This non-contact infrared thermometer has been designed for a broad range of uses including automotive diagnostics, HVAC service, electrical troubleshooting, cooking, and food preparation. When using it around the kitchen while cooking or baking this thermometer eliminates the need for messy direct contact in order to measure. It is ultra-efficient and easy to use. Features advanced ergonomic design and rugged construction for industrial environments, the finish is made of rubber oil and is sweat-proof.
The unit looks a lot heavier in the pictures than what it actually is... I weighed it at less than 6 ounces. It also comes with its own 9 volt battery and has a 7 second hold before turning off - more than enough time to read the display yet be really conservative on the battery.
It is super easy to use, just point and hit the trigger!!
I hope you like this as much as I do... you get this product on Amazon  here.

Precision Digital Kitchen Scale

As I decide that i Need to lose some weight, I get a chance to review this scale. This scale is helping me track my food intake so that I can have a more balanced diet. It is super easy to use!! You can weigh your food IN the bowl or take the bowl off because it is removable and then weigh your food on the actual scale. Either way is fine. It has multiple measure modes so you can use the one that is easiest for you or the one that you understand!!
I received this product for free in exchange for my review.
This scale holds me accountable for how much I eat now because I am getting an accurate count of how much I am actually portioning out.
I also like this for baking because I have some recipes that come in different measurements like oz instead of like cups.... so I am able to make these items without having to be a math wizard!!
I love how the numbers light up and how easy it is to clean and store.

Smart Weigh Digital Food Scale offers the most important features you need in a kitchen scale.
  • Easy to read display with high contrast blue backlight to make the measurements easily visible.
    Includes a removable plastic bowl that is practical and useful when weighing food.
    Extra wide weighing platform provides ample space to weigh larger items.
    You can weigh food directly on the scale’s platform by removing the lightweight weighing bowl.
    High weight capacity of 2000 grams with multiple measurement modes.
    Designed with high quality sensors to provide the most accurate weight readings.
    Simple two button operation with compact design for easy storage.

Ozeri Tower Fan

This is by far the best fan that I have EVER EVER seen. I have to have a fan. it is such a necessity to have that air blowing. Even in the winter!! I do not care the temp inside or the temp outside, I have always needed a fan. This fan is so amazing.
Here are the company spec's.............
~Featuring unrivalled technology, the new Ozeri 3x 44" Tower Fan defines the latest in stylistic innovation and digital décor with its visually stunning design, slim form factor and elegant glass base stand. At less than 3 inches thick, the 3x Tower fan is one of the world's thinnest fans and boasts 3 independently controllable fans with passive noise cancellation technology for remarkable airflow velocity at less than 50dB. The 3x Tower Fan's passive noise reduction technology utilizes the physics of blade curvature to generate mitigating sound waves that reduce blade noise and help isolate the soothing sounds of the airflow itself. The 3x Tower fan is engineered with 3 independently controllable fans and 3 fan speeds, offering up to 9 levels of cooling and the ultimate in customized airflow. It also features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort with 90 degree whisper-quiet oscillation for optimal air circulation for timely relief on a sweltering summer day or for refreshing circulation all year long. The Ozeri 3x Tower Fan also features a 7.5 hour timer that can be programmed in 30 minute increments with ease. All of the Fan's features, including programmable timer, easily controlled via the included extended-range remote or via the touch sensitive LED control panel. The 3x Tower fan features a dismountable design that only requires the hand assembly of fan base using an included large nut, with no tools required. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Starting out with the fact that there are 3 fans blowing. You can use one, two or three at a time.
The fan gives you a lot of air so it is perfect on them warm nights!!!
You can choose which fans you want to use and you can choose how those fans work.
MY personal favorite is the island breeze. I am such a cruise junkie and can only go on one or two a year and I so miss that island breeze.
This fan has a option where you can get that breeze for yourself inside your home and it is so relaxing!!!
I love the way it has a remote so you can do everything you need by just one little box in your hand.
You can choose low, medium and high.. one two or three fans.... and so many other options that will make you love this fan and wonder how you ever lived without it!!!
I highly encourage you to look into getting one of these for yourself!!!
I received this product for free but the review are my thoughts and opinions.

Portable Solar Charger

I am pretty old school so I had never seen a portable solar charger before. This is super cool!!!
It is even super easy to use.
You can plug it into your computer or you can use the sun to charge it up.
That is super easy huh!! You can charge up to 2 things at once as long as one uses a USB.
This is going to be super awesome when I go on my cruise.
I take a lot of electronics that need to be charged and not enough outlets in the room on the ship so this will be really helpful.
It would be great for camping and any activities where you do not have access to an outlet to charge!!!
I know here in OKlahoma we have weather that is crazy so this is super useful to have when a charge is necessary and there is no electricity.
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review :)

Lemon Zester~ MULTI USE

I love to cook!! I have always liked to cook and I watch a lot of cooking shows.

Super easy to use and you can use it on a lot of things.
It is great for citrus. Just rub the peel along the zester and it will scrape off the peel. Do not go to far into the citrus. Once you get to the white part ( pith) stop, the pith is very sour.
It is great for other things as well.
Like garlic, I love to cook with garlic but I do not like how my hands smell after I have to hand chop a bunch of cloves, With this zester you do not have to!! Just peel the garlic and zest is across the zester and POOF!! Great garlic.
I am also using this to do chocolate. I like chocolate shavings and usually the chocolate starts to melt before I get it all ready but with this zester it is very quick and leaves beautiful chocolate shavings!!!
It is super easy to clean and is thin so it is easy to store!!
I received this for free in exchange for my honest review and opinion. You can find this zester here.
