For Clear and Soft Skin…Turn to AMBI Skincare

Ambi

Ambi

For the past two weeks I have been using Ambi Spot Treatment, and I can honestly say it has been working like a charm. Ambi’s even & clear Acne Spot Treatment with Advanced 5% Micro-Benzoyl Peroxide has helped me out with those stubborn pimples that seem to pop out of nowhere. Throughout my teenage years I have tried my fair share of acne products. I have always been flopping around from different brands because not one had seemed to work really well.  But I have a feeling I won’t be using this product for two weeks, I think I finally found a keeper! When applied to my face it is a white lotion, and when applied to my troubled spots it feels soft, gentle, and dries clear to my face. I gave this product the “two week test” and I can truthfully say my face is much more even-toned then it was before; and of course the most important part, my pimples are completely gone. My face feels healthy and beautiful and all it took was Ambi Acne Spot Treatment… who would have known!

Ambi

I have also been using Ambi even & clear Makeup Removing Cleansing Cloths. As we grow older and have more responsibilities are days and nights become longer and at the end of the day we all just want to go to bed. Before bed my nightly routine of washing up usually takes a good 15-20 minutes. Sometimes I cannot wait that long and I am falling asleep while brushing my teeth. These Cleansing Cloths are the perfect trick for nights like these. It is an easy and fast way to take off all my makeup and takes less than 30 seconds to do so. I don’t even have to wash my face afterwards because after taking off the makeup, the cloths are cleansing the skin of its impurities. The one thing I LOVE about this product is the texture of the cloths which is a soft silky consistency and feels amazing as it’s rubbed up against my face. I am the type of person who has sensitive skin, and this product did not irritate my skin, in fact it made my skin wanting more!

All Ambi Skincare products can be purchased at drug and beauty supply stores nationwide.

Fun, Fruity, Muddy and Creamy Face Masks from Montagne Jeunesse

unnamed-8

What are fun, fruity, muddy, creamy and Affordable? Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks and they are incredible. My daughters and I recently had a fun spa party and tried out several Montagne Jeunesse newest masks from their collection. Montagne Jeunesse has a face mask for every skin type and skin concern you can think of. We got to pick from a variety of masks and I chose Aloe Vera Face Spa (this was my favorite 5 minute beauty fix). I have used cloth masks in the past and they are the easiest masks to use. This is a fabric cloth with cut outs for your eyes and nose. You simply place over your face, press out the wrinkles and enjoy the cool aloe vera and green tea botanicals. I also loved the Manuka Honey Peel Off. The mixture actually looks and smells like real honey. I spread it around my face avoiding my eyes and I felt a great tighten sensation as it dried (15 to 20 minutes). Peeling it off was fun and effortless as I said bye-bye to all of my facial impurities. Manuka Honey Peel Off contains Jasmine the natural cleanser of Manuka Honey.

My daughters were feeling fruity and chose Creamy Coconut and Super Fruit MUD. Both of these mask require 15 to 20 minutes of relaxing time and they were not complaining. If you like coconut, you will love Creamy Coconut. Containing Coconut water and shea butter you will feel the ultimate softness of your face after rinsing. Cleanse and nourish your pores with Super Fruit MUD. The Goji Berry and Pomegranate are the super ingredients that throughly cleanse your skin especially your pores. These fruits are considered super fruits in the beauty world so you don’t want to miss out on this fabulous mask.

You can find Montagne Jeunesse Masks at ulta.com and all under $2.50. All the masks are safe, fun to use and smell devine. These masks are animal friendly and Vegetarian Society approved products made without harsh chemicals and parabens. Cleanse, Apply, Relax, Massage and Rinse and bask in the glow of refreshed and invigorated skin.

The palette contains six perfectly neutral shades that will “go” anywhere with you which will give you the means to mix and create your own special color, or just wear one.

Once again, Dimitri James has succeeded in developing just the right colors, texture, and versatility that makes his Hollywood Nearly Nude Lip Palette compatible with any skin tone, and complimentary to any outfit you are wearing.

I’ve always liked to wear “nude type” lip colors, and have spent a lot of money over the years only to find that the colors would always be either too beige and washed me out, or too pale and would not flatter my complexion.

Skinn’s Hollywood Nearly Nude Lip Palette is different and absolutely modern! These lipsticks are “anti-aging” and have “collagen-boosting peptides” ! That helps you maintain fuller and plumper lips while providing you a more youthful “fresh” appearance whatever your age.

I had a very simple makeup look on the other day, and when I mixed and applied a couple of the colors from my Hollywood Nearly Nude Palette, I was happy to see how it truly did pull my whole look together!

With a price point of $22.50 for six colors, two brushes, top technology, unlimited color creativity, and beautiful “take-along” packaging, Skinn’s Hollywood Nearly Nude Lip Palette gets 5-Stars, and a recommendation for you to go to :

Here you’ll be able to order your palette, and peruse all of the great products that Skinn has to offer!

Sally Hansen Hits the Red Carpet

Slide1

Anne Hathaway looks simply georgous on the red carpet during the 2014 Met Ball. Her dress is beautiful and she is wearing my favorite nail polish, Sally Hansen Hard as Nails. I love the color she is wearing and thought to myself, can my nails look as great as Anne Hathaway’s. As you can see from the photo below, I applied 2 coats of “Unbreakable Heart” and and was extremely pleased with the results. Sally Hansen Nail Polishes are easy to apply and quick to dry. When you add a coat of Triple Shine Top Coat, your nails will have a super shine and also helps your polish become chip resistant.

Bloxsun Sun Gloves Are a Must for Younger Looking Hands

 

Bloxsun

Bloxsun

The hands are the first part of your body to show serious signs of aging! As you get older, your hands lose volume, fat and elasticity. Hands age faster than the face because the skin on the back of the hand is thinner than your face. I workout and eat right to stay healthy and look younger, why would I exposure my hands to the sun to turn the clock ahead? I don’t want wrinkly, crinkly, crepe-like skin texture or the ugly, brown, age spots on my hands, like you find in a horror movie! I don’t want the skin on my hands not to bounce back when I pinch it.  And of course, I don’t want skin cancer! I found a product that blocks the harmful UVA/UVB sun rays from my hands when I am in the sun keeping my hands healthy. Bloxsun Sun Gloves are made with a fabric that is tested and rated UPF 50+. Bloxsun Sun Gloves are soft and comfortable to wear with gripping dots for easy handling.Whenever you are in the sun, slip on Bloxsun Sun Gloves to protect your hands from harmful UVA and UVB sun rays. I wear them gardening, running, biking, walking and even driving.

If you are familiar with the drying lamps in the nail salon, there may be an underlying risk for skin cancer after multiple UV exposures from them. I bring my Bloxsun Sun Gloves to the nail salon and wear them while my nails are under the drying lamp. Wear them anytime your hands are exposed to the sun. Believe me, you can hide a lot of things when getting older, but the hands always will give your age away or will raise your number! Don’t wait until it happens, protect your hands as soon as you can with Bloxsun Sun Gloves.  Forget the expensive creams or the hand lifts and laser treatments from plastic surgeons…. Bloxsun Sun Glove UPF 50+ is the best defense under the sun!!!

My $1 Body Acne Miracle Product!!

Suffering from body acne my whole life, I can honestly say there is not one beauty treatment on the market I haven’t tried at least once. I tried everything from home remedies, to $50 beauty counter remedies but my skin just decided to be as stubborn as it can be. Now here I am, 23 years old and I finally found an anti-acne product that works!!! And it’s only $1!!!!

Acne Body Wash

Acne Body Wash

I was in my local Dollar tree one day and I saw that they had an entire acne line that was made specifically for your body and is simply called “Acne Body Wash”. Since I had tried everything else I figured, what the heck it’s only a $1 if it doesn’t work at least I didn’t spend an arm and a leg on it. Now I do shower everyday but it has been my experience not to use something like this all the time. I use it 3 times a week and have for 3 weeks now. Now my acne is all over the place, but it is the worst on my back and shoulders.

Acne Body Wash is enriched with Aloe Vera to help calm the redness and inflammation of the skin, and the main ingredient is salicylic acid. I can finally have confidence in a strapless dress or shirt and shorts (yes I also had acne on my legs). On top of this, I also use witch hazel and try to get at 3-4 minutes of sun exposure to help dry out my skin.

Now if you are allergic to either one of these products I ask you to steer clear of this product. Also, another little reminder is just because it works for me does not mean it will work for everyone. If you have something that works for you stick with that, but if you want to try this remedy I say give it a shot.
