Treat your skin to chocolate (without the guilt) :)

You never have to feel guilty about having chocolate again with this easy DIY chocolate facial. Did you know that not only is dark chocolate beneficial (when eaten in moderation) for your body but your skin as well. It has been proven that dark chocolate is great for fighting of free radicals in your body, is good for your heart and even proven to increase endorphins.

Medicate, heal and sooth with Carmex

Do you have chapped lips or an extremely painful cold sore? Grab your Carmex. Now in many yummy flavors to choose from, the possibilities are endless.

I have been using my Carmex products a lot lately because Florida has been getting chilly and my lips have been very chapped. Also, being on the run I sometimes forget or don’t have time to put lips on. The beauty of the Carmex products is I can have the jar sitting on my nightstand, put the stick in my purse or even have one to put in an over night bag. Its like there is one for any occasion. Not only that but also a flavor for every taste bud.

Carmex

Let’s go back in time & start with the one that started it all. The iconic white jar with yellow lid filled with Carmex’s very own medicated formula. The original formula contains camphor & menthol for a cooling pain relief and petrolatum to act as a Band-Aid for healing. I love to put this one on my nightstand and apply right before I go to bed. While I’m sleeping it seems to really penetrate into my skin leaving me with softer, less painful lips when I wakeup in the morning.

That brings me to the Carmex stick and moisture plus products. The stick, like I said, I will throw one in my purse for use throughout the day under my lipstick or gloss or even by itself. Its full of shea butter for added moisturize & even SPF so lips do not get sunburnt. The moisture plus come in a variety of fun, funky packages and are great for a night on the town. I mean seriously. The packaging is perfect for a little added decoration and we can’t forget soft, kissable lips. Who doesn’t want that right?

I can remember the first time ever using Carmex, I thought “Why was I wasting time with other chap sticks”? My mom told me how my grandma always used it & I can see why. So wy not make grandma happy (lol) and let’s get our very own Carmex on. Check out your local drugstores & www.mycarmex.com for more info on all their products! Your lips will thank you. Happy Fall Ya’ll 🙂

MURAD skincare is “spot on”

I don’t want to jinx it but lately my skin has really been cooperating with me. Its been clear, smooth and the redness has gone down immensely. But still, every once in a while I still have that occasional little break out. With those pesky little ones, I don’t do my full acne clearing regimen. Instead I grab my MURAD Acne Spot Fast Fix. One little dab on the infected area and in one night it has gone down almost instantly.

MURAD Spot Treatment

MURAD Spot Treatment

MURAD was created by a Doctor to bring you the utmost in skincare to target your problem. After I cleanse at night, I put just one small dob on my finger (making sure my hands are clean), warm it up on my fingers and rub onto my acne spots. As I sleep, its like a little miracle is happening beneath the epidermis lol. In the morning the sore pimple spot gets smaller and hurts less. After about 2-3 nightly treatments my spots are gone for good.

Depending on the deepness of the pimple, how well your skin reacts to the product and how often you do these treatments will determine how fast they are treated. MURAD is very gentle, perfect for sensitive skin, and cost effective. So whether you have rosacea, acne, anti aging or just need a great skincare regimen try MURAD. For even more information on MURAD check out www.murad.com and check out your local ULTA to find how you can get your hands on some!

Good gally miss Mally

It’s makeup, it’s invisible, it’s a setting powder! That’s right, the first ever invisible powder from Mally Beauty is literally taking the beauty industry by storm. It goes on clear and helps to set makeup in place for an all day flawless finish that help eliminate fine lines/wrinkles and closes (but does no clog) pores. When I first saw the product, I have to admit I was a little hesitant and kind of freaked. I didn’t know how to apply or how to even explain what it is.

Mally Beauty Ever color Poreless Face Defender

Mally Beauty Ever color Poreless Face Defender

The face defender by Mally was made originally for miss Beyoncé. It does not leave an ashy look like some finishing powders. Having pale/oily skin not only finding the right color but one that gives a matte finish is very hard. with the face defender I no longer have to worry. A couple weeks ago I wore my face defender on a 10 hour shift where I was running around like a mad woman. Due to sensitive/oily skin my makeup tends to move causing it to come off. Wearing my face defender I looked like I had just put my makeup on by 6 that afternoon. It’s velvet feel also gives off a beautiful matte finish. This can also go under makeup acting as a primer for a more clean application.

So no matter skin type, color, or even what makeup you use, try Mally Beauty’s Evercolor Poreless Face Defender invisible powder. Now your look will definitely be “bulletproof”. Oh did I mention that even men can use this product?

For more information on how you to can get your very own Face Defender check out MallyBeauty.com, check out QVC.com or find it at your local Ulta!

You don’t need the beach to get beach waves

Beach days may be almost over but that doesn’t mean your beach hair and gorgeous waves need to stop! See how you can get messy, beachy waves with this easy tutorial using a flat iron!

Kate Hudson

Step 1: Begin by brushing hair with the John Frieda by Conair Sleek Finish Cushion Brush to remove knots and avoid any pulling.

Step 2: Next, spray hair with a heat protectant and heat activated styling spray, such as KMS California FREESHAPE 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray. Than separate the top sections of your hair from the bottom with clips. Curl the bottom layers first and work your way up. Start with a one-inch section of your hair.

Step 3: Use a 1-inch straightening iron. I suggest John Frieda by Conair Sleek Finish 1” Flat Iron. Starting a few inches from the roots, curl the iron away from your face. Hold the straightener with your wrist and your hand facing towards you and twist away from your face in a clockwise motion.

Step 4: Keep turning the iron as you approach the end of your hair and always keep it moving. If you stay too long in one spot you may create dents in the hair.

Step 5: Slowly release the clamp as you get close to the ends for a more modern look. To keep the look wavy instead of too curly, leave the ends out. Finish the look with a medium hold hairspray such as, Philip B. Jet Set Precision Control Hairspray, to increase volume while still allowing movement.

Do the “TanGo”

Lately my career has me on the road up to 2-3 weeks sometimes more. Even though I love it, Its hard to adjust to my daily skincare routine. With that includes wanting to do some self tanner being that we are now going into the fall months. I have always loved self tanning because the sun and I are not the best of friends lol. And on top of the that, sometimes I don’t get it even enough. With TanGo exfoliating mitt, applicator mitt, removal cloth and glove I can get the perfect tan.

TanGo

TanGo

TanGo’s products are non abrasive so you don’t have to worry about it harming your skin, and the cloth and glove are even great for removing makeup. No product. Wet the towel down and just wipe away. Its that cool. Also, lets say you no longer want your tan just use the tan removal glove and instantly your tan comes off. The applicator applies your tanner evenly, thoroughly and leaves your hand feeling less sticky and mess free. And all products are reusable!

TanGo is by far one of the best tanning supply I have ever used. With so many different uses in the glove & towel, the applicator giving a flawless finish and the exfoliator mitt making you feel squeaky l=clan, its no wonder I can’t get enough. I swear I’m beyond addicted to all these products (especially the exfoliator mitt). For more information on how you to can purchase these products check out http://www.tangocloth.com/

While surfing through the newsfeed on my Facebook page I found that two time Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett has been chosen to play Lucille Ball in an upcoming biopic of the famous comedienne. When I found out I couldn’t tell you how excited I was. Being such a Lucy freak, pretty much knowing everything she does before she does it, I am beyond excited for this movie to come. I cannot wait to see what Cate brings to the table and how the movie wil showcase the life, career & relationships of my favorite lady Lucille Ball! Break a leg Cate! I Love Lucy
