Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Pads

exuvianceeyeHappy Tuesday to you! I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend filled with summer fun. If you need an excuse to pamper yourself for 20 minutes, I’m going to give you that excuse.
It is important to take care of yourself, to make you healthy and happy so that you can be there for your family and friends. So don’t feel guilty taking a break once in a while to do something nice for yourself. I’d like to introduce you to Exuviance® Intensive Eye Treatment Pads. This is a great way to pamper yourself, while also improving the look and feel of the delicate eye area. These eye pads are a great addition to your eye treatments, plus they give you an excuse to take 20 minutes to treat yourself!Exuviance Intensive Eye Treatment Pads firms and hydrate the eye area while stimulating cell renewal and minimizing fine lines and wrinkles with Lactobionic Acid and Pro-Vitamins A, C and E. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes are usually one of the first signs of aging. The thin, delicate skin under the eyes is constantly exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight and free radicals which weaken skin’s support matrix, leading to fine lines and deeper “crow’s-feet” wrinkles. Dryness and dehydration can worsen the appearance of fine lines. Until someone discovers the Fountain of Youth, aging is inevitable, but the good news is that the appearance of under eye wrinkles and fine lines can be diminished with the right products.

These are single use pads that you place under your eyes and then relax for 20 minutes. Lay down, shut your eyes, listen to some tranquil music, or sit in silence and meditate to quiet the mind. These feel great while they are on and it really does help with reducing puffiness and soothing the delicate eye tissue.

Pre-packaged in sets of two, the Intensive Eye Treatment pads are the perfect way to refresh, replenish and revitalize your eyes after a long day. Dermatologist and allergy tested. Fragrance-Free, Paba-Free. Safe for all skin types.

How to use:
• Gently cleanse and dry the area thoroughly.
• Open pouch and remove both pads. (Note: Each pouch contains 2 pads.)
• Gently place one pad under or around each eye. Smooth the pad carefully onto the skin.
• Relax. Leave the pads on the skin for 10 to 30 minutes (as desired).
• Gently remove both pads and discard. Do not reuse pads. Gently massage in excess solution.

Take time for yourself and try these Intensive Eye Treatment Pads after a long days work. Your eyes will thank you.

Adovia Dead Sea Salt Scrub

AdoviaDeadSeaScrub2
It is the dead of summer and for me that means going bare foot or flip-flops all day. My heels and bottoms of my feet sometimes get dry and my heels crack. Going barefoot is not nice to your tootsies. So in the evening I love to enjoy a foot soak and this product, the Adovia Sea Salt Body Scrub is perfect for that! Dead Sea Salt Scrub is made with real Dead Sea Salt – 100% Pure and Genuine for an infusion of 21 Minerals Essential to Proper Skin Function. It is a great exfoliator and moisturizer.

I use a small tub that I fill with warm water and a little castile soap. I then soak my feel while watching TV, soaking my feet for 10-15 minutes. Then I use the Dead Sea Salt Scrub by taking a small handful and scrubbing all over my foot and toes and then I use a pumice brush to brush the heels and underside of my feet. The Dead Sea Salt helps to exfoliate while the oils in it sooth and moisturize. Then I rinse off and pat dry. The oil doesn’t leave you feeling greasy.

The fine grain Dead Sea Salts exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a new younger looking layer of radiant skin. Deeply moisturizing oils infuse skin with luxurious hydration that lasts all day.

This works great in the shower or bath and you can use it anywhere on your body except I’d avoid the facial area. It smells great, feels very luxurious on the skin and leaves you feeling pampered.

Trilane Retinol + Vitamin C Serum

trilaneSummer is upon us and it is a hot one this year! We are having some cloudy, muggy, hot days and nights and it is difficult to keep your cool. Even in the hot months it is important to keep moisturizer as a part of your skincare routine. I find it hard to keep up with it during the summer because I’m hot and sticky, but I still go ahead and use a good moisturizer because it’s that important.

Today I’d like to introduce you to Trilane Retinol + Vitamin C Moisturizer. I use it morning and night and I really like it because it’s light even though it’s an oil consistency. It soaks in well and doesn’t leave you oily looking. It doesn’t have a scent and it really does help with anti-aging by reducing the signs of aging and leaving my skin soft, supple and moisturized. It also contains Vitamin C which I love in my skincare and it is good for any skin type. It helps to brighten the skin and keep it healthy.

What are you doing to keep cool this summer? Do you still use moisturizer in these hot sticky months?

In love with the gel!

2015-07-12_13.35.04_zpst6aqp4wn[1]I am a reformed nail biter. I think I bit my nails because of anxiety but when I had a boyfriend in my late teens, he really liked long nails so I started wearing acrylic nails. I wore them for about 10 years and I think it was because I was physically not able to bite my nails, I stopped biting them after I stopped wearing acrylics.

Now I have natural nails and I really enjoy trying to keep them in good shape. But I have never tried gel nail polish. Of course I have heard of it, seen others who wear it, and have been very curious. The reasons I didn’t try it is because of the expense, it seemed quite expensive at first, like $20-$35 when it first came out and because some people said it was hard to get off, blah, blah.

Well I finally tried it because I found a place that my Mom gets her eyelash extensions done and she told me that they have all these really beautiful gel colors and they were advertising the gel polish for $10. It was a simple process of a base coat, 3 coats of color and a top coat and you put your hand in a light curing machine to dry. I was really amazed that they were dry so quickly, I was sure I’d mess one up, but that would be very hard to do. They kind of look like acrylics in that they are hard and well coated. I really love it and am anxious to see how long they last. They told me 2-3 weeks.

If you want to stop biting your nails, it would be a great idea to have your nails gel polished, because it would be difficult to bite them and your nails would be able to grow.

The gel polish is DND #496 Ballet Slippers.

Zakia’s Moroccan Clay Mask

zakiamorrocan2

I would like to introduce you to Zakia’s Moroccan Clay Mask. It is in a dry clay powder that you add water to. It’s really nice because you can use it on your face or body or even on your hair! It’s silky smooth and feels really great on the skin. The clay comes from the Atlas Mountains in Morocco and it’s perfect for detoxifying, toning and rejuvenating the skin. The ghassoul clay is mineral rich and helps to leave a healthy glow. You can even add some of the powder to your favorite shampoo, wash and rinse. It cleanses and leaves your skin and hair feeling soft and lovely. I am now using this one time a week and like having it in my weekly routine.

Vita Sciences Joint Right Cream and Nervex Pain Relief Therapy


jointrelief2We have had some overcast days and some rainy days lately and I’ve realized that when there is moisture in the air, my joints start aching. I’ve found something that has really helped me lately. It’s the Vita Sciences Joint Right Cream. It is a measured dose that you put on your ouchy places and it works! It has really helped me with pain. It’s nice because it is unscented and the cream soaks in and doesn’t feel greasy.
What Vita Sciences says about Joint Right: Targeted pain relief caused by inflamed joints—Vita Science Joint Right cream provides odor-free relief. Our cream is formulated with natural ingredients that have been scientifically established to work. Joint Right cream incorporates a unique combination of ingredients, our own BlueProfen complex, that work in 2 main ways to provide relief. Immediate relief is provided by bringing joint inflammation under control. Long term benefit comes from building up mucosal joint linings (lubricating the joint).
Using Vita Sciences Joint Right cream as directed is a safe and reliable method of dealing with joint pain. Moisturizers and anti-oxidants allow this light cream to easily absorb into the skin. Each 1.7 ounce bottle delivers 30 applications of lotion in protected and measured amounts. Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle to your skin.

nervex2Also by Vita Sciences, the Nervex Pain Relief Therapy is another cream that has really worked wonders for my knee and back pain. Peripheral neuropathy can cause numbness, over-sensitivity, burning, or tingling in your feet or hands. This is a result of some type of nerve damage that may be caused by numerous possibilities. Again, I like this cream because it’s easy to dispense, it’s non-irrating, made of natural ingredients and it works.

Rubbing the easily absorbed, odorless lotion on your feet or hands makes daily use of Nervex an ideal way to get all the Vitamin B12 you need.
