Please go buy this

For those of you that know me well, I am what you would refer to as beauty junkie. I covet new beauty products like a crazy person. I also obsess about skin care items and the next best thing to make myself look 13, uh I mean 25 versus the 37 year old lady I have become.
Some might say I don’t really look 37, whatever 37 looks like…or some might just say that I have nice skin and few wrinkles. Genetics? Probably, but I also inherited a nice case of Rosacia. My skin looks like I was caught climbing to Mt Everest and back without any cheek protection when I am sans fards (aka makeup free). I lit up like a red light district light bulb when I was embarrassed in school as a kid, no keeping my cool…it was written all over my face, so to speak.
Over the years I have tried everything to get rid of it, gobs of La Mer, Dermatologist prescription creams and any new product out there that claimed to help. I didn’t care how much I had to spend as long as I could go concealer free in public and look age appropriate. I finally caved and bought the Clarisonic Mia, and not because I had faith that this would finally be the answer to my skin care cries, but that it was cute and pretty skinned people were telling me I needed one pronto. So I did it. I have used it for over a year now and my skin is significantly softer, less breakouts, less obvious fine lines and yes, less redness.
The bottom line of this post? Go buy it. And yes…I am not afraid to admit that I watch infomercials at night. I was watching QVC last night and I found this gem of a deal. Now, mind you I already have a Mia, so I don’t need another one, and yes I have tried with all my might to convince myself to buy the Clarisonic Plus so that I can make my body look awesome too…but I just can’t justify it and I don’t need it. But maybe you do?
Go buy it and believe the raves. Give it some time, but trust me…you will see a difference. If you want to bump up the awesomeness factor of redness removal then buy this face cream: Pomega Healing Cream. I don’t think I will ever use another face cream again as long as this keeps doing the trick.

Beauty Must Have

Anyone that knows me knows that I am absolutely addicted to cosmetics and the latest and greatest beauty gadgets. I recently found a new hair product that I must share with all of you. And if you have the attitude of–been there-done that, then sorry. I am a newbie to this line of products and am absolutely in love.

My hair is frizzy, wavy and living in the Pacific Northwest doesn’t seem to help much when I am trying to keep my hair nice and sleek. Although my mom and Grandma love my little baby curls that form around my face when I sweat or take a shower. Pretty much I look like a precious little girl when I am trying to do my best in my hot yoga class. When I went to get my hair done a few weeks back, the stylist told me she wasn’t used to the new products the salon had. She just went for it and used one of their shampoo and conditioner on my frizzy hair to help calm it down and the bonus, it smells amazing. So I won’t hold you in suspense anymore—the products–Davines.

The shampoo that she used on me was the Love, and I did–I fell in love with the smell and feel of my hair. The smell reminds me of grapefruit and roses, but I am sure there are several other fancy things involved. The price point wasn’t too bad, and I have spent MONEY on hair products, so $25 for a bottle of shampoo is cheap in my  mind. The conditioner works wonders and is thick and also smells amazing. It actually seems to rinse out better than I expected and doesn’t leave your hair greasy or feeling thick with product. I found an online store that sells it for a mild discount–and I would highly recommend trying it out if you have frizzy waves like me. If you don’t–they have several other products that I am sure would fit your hair styling needs just perfectly.
