                                              Shower Cream | Body Cream | Body Oil

As temperatures drop and the seasons turn to cold, your skin needs a little more TLC. I am not just talking about your face. I am talking about the whole body. We change our facial routine all the time, add products, stop using products; but many times we don’t worry about our all over body skincare needs. During the winter we need things that we can layer and that are more moisture enriched. This shower cream, body cream and body oil are perfect for this. They smell amazing and give your skin that added moisture boost it needs for the winter months.

Want a purse that is perfect for fall and winter?? I have the one for you. This Cartridge bag is tops on my list. It comes in Merlot and black with gold details that are stylish and will accent your everyday wear. Use it as a cross body, clutch, or a shoulder bag to fit your needs for daytime or going out to a social function at night. It’s the perfect bag because it is not to big or small, just right to fit your essentials.

Who doesn’t like cute socks? How many times have you seen someone in professional dress that shows a hint of their personality through their socks? Or someone who is wearing a otherwise boring outfit, except for their socks. I honestly think that is the best part about these, the fact that you can show your personality through them.  Find many different prints that are sure to please. Perfect holiday gifts or stocking suffers. Use code: 3515 till 11/15 for $3.50 off $15+.

So I know there are a lot of face mask to choose from, but this one just happens to be one of my favorites. This Dead Sea Mud Mask pulls out the toxins and impurities in your skin, as well as shrinks the sizes of pimps, acne and blemishes. If that is not enough, it makes your skin feel so smooth afterwards. I use this once a week and i’m obsessed with it! You will be too!

Makeup Monday: Skyn Lounge

                     

This Makeup Monday is rather different then ones I have done before. Today I am talking about dermaplaning, which is a new way to exfoliate! Dermaplane is a treatment that uses a blade to remove hair/peach fuzz, as well as minimize scaring and improve overall texture and tone of the skin. You will immediate experience brightening of the skin and smoothness once finished. 
Last week I had the opportunity to visit Skyn Lounge Clinical Day Spa and receive dermaplaining. When I say my skin feels amazing, I mean it! My makeup goes on easier, unwanted hairs have been removed, and my skin is healthier and rejuvenated. This treatment takes 45 minutes and last 4-6 weeks. The investment is $95, but if you pair it with any other skincare treatment you can add dermaplaning for just $35 (now that is a deal!). If you are in the Louisville KY area I definitely suggest visiting the Skyn Lounge. They offer many services such as, facials, chemical peels, waxing, massage and makeup application. 
After the dermaplane treatment I had the opportunity to get my makeup done. Skyn Lounge offers brow and lash tinting, makeup lessons, and special occasion makeup. You can book them for any event and function that you have in your life. 
I would definitely recommend Skyn Lounge for all your skincare needs. Esspically since Fall is around the corner, everyone’s skin can use a little TLC.

Tula Skincare

Can I just say that thus far Tula products (website here) are my favorite skincare products hands down. I have tried millions of skincare products, but nothing has compared.


Tula product are formulated with tropical probiotics. Just like in the foods you eat, probiotics gives you the nutrients you need to stay healthy. So why not put it in the products that you use on your skin? So that you can provide the outside with those nutrients as well. That is what Tula did. They formulated their products with probiotics, which helps your skin be more resist to damage and aging. Probiotics help aid in wrinkle reduction, even tone and textures, and helps reduce redness and inflammation. Probiotics also help balance your skins pH, as well as hydrate it.

I was fortune enough to be able to try the Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask (found here) and the Hydrating Day & Night Cream (here). The smell of these two products is enough to make you want to buy them. They smell amazing! I have very dry skin so the exfoliating mask gently removes the dry and dead skin cells while moisturizing the new ones. Since the mask is so gentle I can use it up to 2-3 times week. The mask also helps when you are having a breakout. It diminished a pimple that I had within 24 hours and made my skin look very smooth and nourished.
Tula’s Hydrating Cream has been a God sent. It keeps my dry skin extra moisturized. I have never had a face lotion that has sustain hydration through out the day like this one does. It also helps reduces fine lines and wrinkles. You have to try Tula Skincare. They have a Discovery Kit where you can try all their products in travel sizes (found here). Use code: SHOP20 for 20% off and free shipping. After you do come back and let me know how you liked it. I love these products so much that I have already ordered their Purifying Face Cleanser (found here) I cannot wait to try it. Shop Tula Skincare below. Hope you enjoy!

Addicted to LUSH!!!

                                     
So LUSH sucked me in……The other day while in the mall I ventured into the Lush store. I have been into the store one or two times but have never bought anything. I loved the smells of the products and what they stood for but I just wasn’t ready to commit until two days ago.  If you have never heard of Lush, I don not know who hasn’t, let me tell you a little bit about their company and why I love their products.
Lush’s core values should be enough for you to take a look. They pride themselves on: 
1. Being NAKED! “When it comes to packaging, less is more”. All their packaging is made from 100% recycled plastic. They ask that you reuse the container or bring it back to the store. They also offer  a free Fresh Face Mask if you bring back five clean pots so they can recycle them. If that’s not a deal than what is?!? 
2. Everything they make is 100% vegetarian and some even vegan
3. They make their products with the freshest ingredients possible daily
4. Fighting against animal testing for over 30 years. They love the animals!
5. Everything they make and sell is handmade to the touch
6. Ethical buying. Their ingredients do not cost the Earth. They are tree huggers. Which I love! 🙂 
7. Charitable giving.
Check out their story here
Products I am trying now and LOVE:

1. Oatifix Fresh Face Mask- All Lush mask are made with essential oils, fresh fruit and veggies, deep cleansing clays and nutrient rich herbs. The Oatifix soothes dry and flaky skin with mashed bananas.This mask is for sentsitive dry or irritated skin. Lush has mask for all skin types. At only $6.95 for a pot that has five mask in it, it’s is definitely worth trying.

2. Buffy Body Butter- Exfoliating and moisturizing bar. This one is my favorite. The rough textures eliminate lumps and bumps and sloughs away dry skin cells to reveal brighter, fresher looking skin. The cocoa and shea butters keep your skin beautifully smooth, moisturizered and soft to the touch. Cost is $6.95, $11.95, or 22.95 depending on size.
3. Turkish Delight Shower Smoothie- They look like a body lotion, with a softy, creamy whipped texture, and yet they’re a soap. Turkish Delight is a rose scented smoothie. This specific one is particularly good for dry and sensitive bodies that need moisture. Cost is $34.95, but well worth it if you have dry skin.  It last about 3 months. Great for the winter months.
5. Charity Pot Body Lotion- With floral perfume of ylang ylang and rosewood oils in a hydrating cocoa butter base, this lotion is extra moisturizing. Not only do I love this lotion 100 % of the profits go to charity. Cost is $6.95 or $25.95. The charity that is on the Lush pot I bought is Earth Guardians. This organization empowers youth around the globe to create social and environmental change in their communities. Check out their website here. So donate to a charity and get an awesome lotion while doing it.
