One of the best deals happens today, when you can grab up the iconic Urban Decay Eye Potion primer. This primer is coveted by professional makeup artists and beauty enthusiasts alike for its unbelievable ability to make your eyeshadow have amazing staying power and enhance the color and pigment of any shadow! With this deal, you can get a full size primer for only $9.60 after your cash back.... you can ;grab up your coupon here! 


Shop At Home is bringing to you 4% cash back and 50 ShopGold rewards points for every ULTA 21 Days of Beauty purchase. So, you can shop for your favorite goodies, and get money back in your pocket.

Since I am an avid online shopper I rely on ShopAtHome.com to make sure I am spending smarty. I love nothing more than a great beauty barging (and so does my wallet!).

HOW IT WORKS:

Go to ShopAtHome.com to sign up, and install the toolbar (I highly recommend this part!). Next time you are online shopping, simply visit their site to activate the coupon codes and they will track your purchases & send you a monthly rebate for the cash back you've earned on those orders.

Kick off your New Years Resolutions with a Walgreen Giveaway!

#startshere

The first week of the New Year has already ended, and I must say that this year I am determined to stick to my resolutions! I know, I know.....never happens.  But, I know that now more than ever I am appreciate of my health and all the opportunities that this year is going to bring, so I want to  be in the best shape I can! 

As most of you know, I am on-stop shop kinda gal.  I want to get everything in one place, and one of my favorite spots to do this is at Walgreens. Walgreens carries amazing brands such as Pantene, COVERGIRL, Crest and Olay.  They also have you covered when it comes to taking care of your health! Some of my newest finds to help me through my fitness resolutions are the Walgreens Activity Tracker with Smartwatch Technology that keeps track of my steps and any activities I do throughout the day. I also have been addicted to the Contigo Autoseal Grace Water Bottle.  Keeping myself hydrated is always a battle for me, but I have been able to be more consistent with my water consumption!  The 24 oz. AUTOSEAL® Grace Water Bottle is engineered for an easy one-hand drinking experience. This BPA-free water bottle features a one-touch AUTOSEAL® lid that automatically seals between sips to eliminate spills and leaks. The ergonomic handle offers a comfortable grip, and the body is made with durable Tritan materials.

For my beauty needs I rely on my favorite beauty staples.  Currently I am loving the newest COVERGIRL Full Lash Bloom Mascara which gives a very natural and clean look to the lashes.  This is the perfect everyday mascara!  Another must have to tame my very parched split ends is the Pantene Weekly Rehab Creme and the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Creme.  I have been using both for weeks and I am convinced it has helped heal my hair after a very bad dye job.  Since my wedding is coming up in three months, I have been working on making my teeth whiter with Crest 3D White Toothpaste and Whitestrips.  I want my smile to be radiant when I say I DO.  

If you want to hear more ideas on beauty and health for the new year, than join us for two separate Twitter parties!

  • Sunday January 4th from 8-9 PM EST.  This Twitter party will be focused around New Year’s resolutions in beauty and wellness and how P&G and Walgreens can help you #STARTHERE and keep resolutions all year long.
  • January 7th from 8-9pm EST will focus on the PCA Red Carpet looks – what are you seeing on the Red Carpet? Anything you want to try to achieve this year – from new trends to new hairstyles, maybe new fitness goals? We would love if you provide beauty and wellness tips for others to help achieve their resolutions.

What Holiday Shopper Are You?

 

 During the holidays I am the go-to gal when it comes to gifting my sisters and girlfriends with beauty goodies.  I usually like to find something unique and personal.  Fragrance is always my top pic.  Yet, fragrance can be hard to choose when it comes to finding the perfect scent for your favorite gal (or guy), so I tend to keep it simple and fun with wallet friendly celebrity fragrances.

Olay Luminous and Walgreens Giveaway!

200321085-001

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!

crestsensi

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.

youthh20

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!

This is one of my favorite smoothie mixes that I watched them make with youthH2O; it is delicious, and energizing.  Ingredients: – 1 cup Blueberries – 2 cups Baby Spinach – 1 Fat Free Blueberry Yogurt (4-6oz) – 1/4 Cup Water – 2oz of youthH2O. Blend and enjoy!

Now is your chance to try out this fantastic product! enter simply tweet about our giveaway, and let us know how you take care of yourself from the inside! #beautyfrominside a Rafflecopter giveaway
