Five Mica Beauty Products That Completely Changed My Life

Hey everyone, I'm Jenni, he one who writes the Heat Lounge blog, and I wanted to take today's post over to talk about one of the best things Heat Lounge offers, and that's Mica Beauty products. I began using Mica Beauty when I joined the Heat Lounge team, and I can definitely tell you the have been a game changer for my beauty routine.

I know... you're thinking, "Sure, you love these products because they pay you to love these products," and I say NO! I wanted to write about these products because they are that good and you can only find them here at Heat Lounge in Atlanta.

Now, I'm a single mom of three who works full time, and I'm at that moment in my late 30's where my skin needs a little extra care. I have very sensitive, dry and acne-prone skin that will go crazy along with my stress level, which let me tell you, is always kind of high.

I've always been a believer in high-end makeup, because as far as quality goes, you get what you pay for. However, I am also on a budget, so I always relied on that coupon from Ulta every week and just bought what was on sale rather than what was best for my skin. I was also hesitant to try Mica Beauty products because in the past, I did not have success with mineral makeup. I found that it wasn't very long lasting, and the pigment always faded after a couple of hours.

So below I've put together a list of my favorite Mica Beauty products that have completely changed my life.

Mica Beauty B.B. Cream - $45

Mica Beauty B.B. Cream

Before I tried this B.B. cream, I was very happy with my Clinique B.B. cream, but once I tried this, I totally knew what I was missing. This B.B. cream is better than some high-end full coverage foundations with the way it covers and smooths out your skin texture. It stays put and the color always looks fresh. It has also done a great job of keeping my skin hydrated and controlling breakouts. 

Mica Beauty - Refreshing Toner - $25

I love this toner. Love it! Like before, I was a Clinique die hard, but when I tried this toner for the first time, I threw away all of my Clinique skincare. This toner left my face clean and fresh, ready for moisturizer, and helped reduce the irritation and redness I always had after cleansing.

Mica Beauty Loose Mineral Foundation - $45

I jumped on the mineral makeup bandwagon when it became the latest trend 15 years ago, and I absolutely hated it, swearing it was never going to be for me. This led to years of trying dozens of different liquid foundations of all brands and prices, and never finding the right one. I was using Philosophy foundation before trying this mineral foundation, and there was no comparison. Mica Beauty's loose foundation was nothing like my experience those years ago. This foundation covers well, doesn't feel heavy on my skin, and actually has improved the texture of my skin over the last month I have been wearing it. 

Mica Beauty Mineral Lipstick - $22

I am terrified of lipcolor. I have been all about nude lips since the first day I started to wear makeup. However, this deep raspberry/wine shade (#29) caught my eye, and I decided to play with lipcolor. Total game changer. I have shied away from color because I'm blonde with blue eyes and fair skin, but this shade was incredible. I wore it to an event a few weeks ago, and I never had to reapply the shade. It's also gentle on the lips and has the perfect amount of matte/shine. 

Mica Beauty Tinted Lip Balm - $22

If you're looking for a lip balm for everyday, check out this lip balm with several shades from natural to bright and deep. The packaging doesn't lie when it says it will last 24 hours, and comes with a handy built-in applicator. The long-lasting formula means a little goes a long way, so this is also a great value. 

If you're in the Atlanta area, you can get the entire Mica Beauty line exclusively at Heat Lounge. We have a team of professional makeup artists who can help you choose the best skin care and makeup products for you. Trust me, it will be a complete life changing experience. Call 770-352-4328 or visit the Heat Lounge website for more info today!

Five Myths About Keratin Treatments

Here at Heat Lounge, we are all about a great blowout, and we offer several blowout options in our salon, we offer an array of Keratin Smoothing Services that can last anywhere from 6 weeks to 5 months. It's a great way to have tame and sleek hair long term, especially if you have coarse or textured hair.

But there are a lot of myths out there about keratin treatments, so let's take a minute to debunk the five biggest myths about professional keratin treatments.

Keratin contains dangerous chemicals and carcinogens like formaldehyde

This myth is often hard to debunk because there is some truth to it. Many formulas contain harsh chemicals and formaldehyde. Heat Lounge only uses GK Products, which don't contain harsh chemicals or formaldehyde.

Keratin Treatments will straighten your hair 

While your hair will appear sleeker and give the appearance of straighter hair, keratin is really meant to remove frizz and not change the wave of your hair. If you're looking for straightening treatments, Heat Lounge offers a relaxing service that will remove the curl from your hair.

You can wash your hair right away

Yes and no! With a traditional keratin treatment, you need to leave the treatment on your hair for at least 48 hours before shampooing. However, our Express Keratin service allows you to shampoo your hair on the same day.

Keratin treatments will damage the hair

This is a myth from the early days of keratin treatments that used harsh chemicals along with the high heat used. Our GK Keratin system seals the hair cuticle in a protective shield that coats the hair and protects it.

A Keratin treatment will leave your hair maintenance free

A common misconception is that a keratin treatment will make your hair simply 'wash and go.' What keratin WILL do, however, is make your hair more manageable and cut your styling time in half.

If you have any more questions about keratin treatments at Heat Lounge featuring GK Hair professional products, our stylists are happy to answer your questions. Just call 770-352-4328.
