As most of my readers know, I am particularly obsessed with oils. Face oils, body oils, hair oil....you name, I love it.  I have noticed such a tremendous change in my skin since I started using facial oils.  But, alot of readers have often complained that they can't find a decent facial oil without breaking the bank.  Now, I can finally offer an amazing, low cost alternative.  Olay Regenerist Luminous Oil.  Not only is it light, smells divine, and makes your skin skin super soft and radiant, but it is wallet friendly.  Love this!  Luckily for me, P&G and Walgreens have generously shared with my readers a giveaway for these Luminous products, and a $75 gift card to Walgreens! Now, you can become an "oil addict" too! 

The other products in the Luminous collection have stolen my heart too. The cream is perfect for under makeup, and gives your skin a stunning glow.  I am very fair with TONS of freckles, and this cream has helped me to get a more even skin tone and brighter appearance.  I have been using the combination of the oil and the cream at night for the past few weeks, and have been very impressed by the combo.  It feels like a high end product, but I adore the low end price.  I will have no problem recommending this to my clients, since I won't have to preface it with "you will love it, but it is on the pricy side".  Now, I just say "Run out and grab some!!".

Regenerist Luminous Collection

• What It Does: Olay’s Luminous line goes beyond dark spots to address dull, uneven skin and reveal your most pearlescent skin.
• How It Works: Regenerist Luminous works to repair skin at the collagen mirror to restore your most pearlescent skin. Olay has also included a Mica complex to provide an immediate radiant glow for today, while still delivering long term benefits over time.
Did you know? Myth vs. Fact: When using the right amount – just a few drops – natural oils absorb instantly giving your skin a sheer glow rather than shine (please let me know if you would like me to send over more Myth vs. Facts).

From October 26th-November 2nd Walgreens is featuring the Olay Luminous Moisturizer and Eye Cream on sale for $23.99. Plus there is a $3 brandSAVER coupon in the October 26th paper so you can pick up these fabulous products for only $20.00 each!

Crest Sensi Stop Strip Giveaway!

How many times have you gone to enjoy that ice cream cone, only to be shocked by a tooth pain.  It happens way too often!  I always thought it was just a normal side effect, but now realise that I am one of the many people who suffer from sensitive teeth!  Luckily for me, P&G sent me some products that help out my sensitive teeth (here comes the ice cream!!) and generously shared with my readers a giveaway for all the Crest Sensi products, and a $75 gift card to Walgreens! 

Now, I have to admit that I am a sucker for a good toothbrush and toothpaste....I honestly have a little weird obsession. The Sensi-Soft Toothbrush does not irratate my gums, and yet still leaves me feeling clean.  Love that! The Sensi-Repair & Prevent Toothpaste helps to immediately help with sensitivity, all while working to fight off gingivitis.  

The Crest Sensi-Care AntiCavity Fluoride Rinse has a very mild, which is another bonus since I can't stand that burning mouthwash feeling.  This is one of my favorite products in the bunch. I know I am not the only one who will love a fresh mouth without the nasty alcohol sensation! 

Here is the breakdown!

· What it is: Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are thin, flexible strips that contain an active ingredient used by dental professionals.
· How it Works: Unlike toothpaste, Crest® Sensi-Stop™ Strips are applied directly to sensitive areas, providing targeted delivery of the key ingredient that allows for longer contact time on the surface of the tooth. Within minutes, strips build a lasting barrier that helps stop sensitivity pain by blocking tubules, relieving symptoms of dental sensitivity for up to 30 days (*With the use of similar oxalate products, some patients reported sensitivity relief for periods of up to one month, while others reported relief for shorter periods).

The main man behind the new line, Paul Sagel, Procter & Gamble Research Fellow and Inventor Crest Sensi-Stop Strips said: 
“It took an entire team of dedicated R&D professionals to create Crest Sensi-Stop Strips. Beginning with innovative technology found in Crest 3D White Whitestrips, we then fine-tuned the product architecture featuring the same ingredient as some professional tooth sensitivity treatments until it met our rigorous efficacy, safety and quality demands.”

Now, you can try these amazing products as well! On Saturday, September 27th, stop by your local Walgreens Saturdate event and pick up a box of Crest Sensi-Stop Strips™ for $17.99! There will be additional coupons and deals throughout the event and even samples of Crest Sesni toothpaste.

I am a strong believer that you have to take care of yourself first and put your health as a priority if you want to achieve a beautiful glow. No amount of makeup can mask unhealthy skin!

I first discovered Youth H20 while doing makeup on the set of their infomercial, and instantly fell in love with the brand and the philosophy behind the product. They believe that the most important part of your beauty routine should come from natural ingredients that help you maximize your health and your life!  For me, it has become a daily necessity.  For the past month I have relied on my daily Youth H20 shot, and have seen a tremendous difference in my energy, my sleep, and my appetite.  I was so excited about this product that I signed my father and mother up for the monthly delivery service, and my mother has already reported that she is sleeping better throughout the night!  

As a makeup artist, I also rely on YouthH20 for my clients.  I suggest that they take a shot of this magic juice the night before a big event to ensure that they are refreshed and look glowing the next morning! 

The little daily shot of Youth H2O contains a proprietary blend of powerful super foods and nutrients formulated through advanced science and innovation to stimulate, replenish, and reactivate youthful elements and nutrients in your body. 

  • YouthH2O fights against the signs of aging, while giving you CAFFEINE FREE energy.
  • YouthH2O also gives you immunity support everywhere you go!
  • YouthH2O adapts to your body’s needs supporting Beauty, Performance and Wellness!

Key West Aloe Giveaway!

Press Sample Sponsored Post
Share on Twitter5 Share on Facebook8 Share on Pinterest2 Share on Google +11

keywestaloe

I never start summer without a bottle of aloe vera around to handle any random sunburns. As it turns out, aloe isn't just for the summer months. Key West Aloe makes this amazing natural ingredient a year round must have. Their line of aloe infused skin care products are designed to make your skin look smoother, younger and healthier. Even though I have very dry skin I must admit that I hate applying moisturizer during the heat…this line solves my dilemma! Not only does it feel cooling on the skin, but it sinks in immediately and doesn’t leave a sticky, heavy film on the skin. Another benefit is that it works wonderfully for both men and women. The packaging is clean, unisex and sleek. I have found Mike grabbing for these products more than once!

The line targets everything from dryness to anti-aging. It all starts with aloe vera which already contains magnesium, zinc, calcium and amino acids. It also has hundreds of micro-nutrients and vitamins A, C and E. I couldn't believe how good aloe really is for your skin. Combine this with Key West Aloe's skin loving formulas for the skin you've only dreamed about.

I personally love the Environmental Defense Cream With SPF 15 for everyday moisture. From facial scrubs to night time recovery serums, this line has your face completely covered. With varying percentages of aloe in each formula, you skin gets exactly what it needs to maintain a healthy pH, fight the signs of aging and stay moisturized no matter what season it is.

Try just one product in their line and you'll be hooked. Trust me, you'll never see aloe the same way again. It's definitely become my new best friend.

Ready to see what aloe vera can do for your skin? Check out these products at www.keywestaloe.com and use promo code BeautyStat at check-out to receive 30% OFF your purchase!

Get Ready for the 4th of July with Walgreens!

4thofjulybeauty

The 4th of July weekend is filled with BBQ, pool parties, and celebrations galore.  Mike and I consider it a wonderful date weekend filled with family and friends. During this weekend I make sure to have an easy beauty and skincare supply on hand. I want my look to have a fresh, gorgeous summer date night glow. I always make sure I am wearing my waterproof makeup, protecting my hair, and keeping my skin sun safe with a good SPF.  

So, I happy to share with you my latest 4th of July weekend kit! Here is my breakdown: 

FACE: You want to start with moisturized, clean skin. I am currently in love with Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over hydrating gel moisturizer and Makeup Remover Wipes. They are cooling, light on the skin and perfect for summer and under your makeup. No meltdown! Next, I like to use a light foundation that gives some coverage, and continues to moisturize.   

EYES and LIPS: Waterproof mascara is a must, and the new CoverGirl Bombshell mascara has become a favorite for deep, black lashes that pop! If you need an extra bit of drama, than add CoverGirl Ink liner in black to the base of your upper lash line for a subtle summer look.  Think Audrey Hepburn! To finish off the look, add a pop of soft pink lipgloss. The current favorite is CoverGirl Colorlicious

HAIR: Don't forget to care for your strands this weekend, especially if you are are at the beach or pool. The chlorine and sea water can wreck havoc on your hair! I apply Pantene Rehab Cream to my hair before I go out in the sun to make sure my hair is protected and to give it an ultra boost of hydration. 

Now is your chance to grab up these date night goodies for the weekend!! Until July 5th, you can visit any Walgreens store to get the following offers:

The cream is super moisturizing, and takes off most of my makeup without tugging or stripping my skin. And last but not least, the moisturizer leaves my skin with a soft radiance and never leaves it feeling sticky. You get hydration that sinks right in and leaves your skin glowing like a goddess! All three products have become my new favorite prep for makeup application. Light and lovely.
