Jergens BB Body Cream

Press Sample Sponsored Post Advertorial
Share on Twitter6 Share on Facebook3 Share on Pinterest8 Share on Google +11

 I have a love/hate relationship with body creams. I adore the hydration, but most of the time can't stand the sticky after feeling I am left with.  I need a product that seeps into my skin instantly, gives me a subtle glow, and doesn't overwhelm with my a heavy fragrance.  Well, I was more than pleased to find out that the new Jergens BB Body Cream, does just that....and more.  What? Yes, it has 5 very amazing ways it helps to improve your skin, and it has the added bonus of making your skin look airbrushed.  Now that Summer is only a few months away, I most definitely want to make sure my lily white skin looks as lovely as possible. 

You must have heard by now that BB Creams are all the rage in makeup and skincare. They combine the benefits of your favorite anti-aging skincare with light coverage, and a gorgeous finish.  This BB Cream for the body is no different. Think of it as your favorite BBCream in a very large, good for your body bottle. The main thing I noticed was that I loved the way the product felt on my skin. It was an instant softness, and I actually liked the light, fruity scent.  Another bonus was the sheen it imparted onto my skin. It was a red carpet sexiness that even Mike noticed (and if your man notices that your skin looks great, than you KNOW you have a great product on your hands).  

The five benefits that the BB Cream for the body imparts are: 

  • Hydrates and smooths
  • Brightens and Illuminates
  • Evens skin tone
  • Visibly firms the skin
  • Minimizes the appearance of imperfections. 

Tips: I have been using this cream for over two weeks now, and have been loving the results.  It also has found a place in my professional makeup mag for sets, where I can make sure the actresses are glammed up and ready to go.  If I want more warmth, or sheen, I simply add my favorite loose bronzer to the cream and blend.  

Disclosure: This post and video were sponsored by Jergens BB Body Cream through their partnership with POPSUGAR Select. While I was compensated to write a post and create a video about Jergens BB Body Cream, all opinions are my own.

Style ideas for blonde hair & green eyes

Share on Twitter0 Share on Facebook3 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11


 

Today's question is "how to style blonde hair and green eyes".

As you can see our lovely model in the video above has has blonde hair and beautiful green eyes and we've kept her makeup focused on those eyes to really make them pop. We've used a deep purple eyeshadow with bronze accents and a little bit of defining black liner right near the lash line.

The hair is pulled back to lift up the face and create height and sensuality.

You can also add a little bit more of that purple, don't be afraid of that bright color, and bring it right under the eye. This is another great way to pop that eye color. As you can see, that really put the focus on the green eyes making them beautiful and sparkling.

JuveRest Sleep Wrinkle Pillow

JuveRest Sleep Wrinkle Pillow

by Sian Bitner Kearney:

We’ve all heard the term, “get your beauty sleep”, but did you know that certain sleeping positions can actually cause wrinkles. If you’re strictly a back sleeper, you’re probably safe. However, for the side sleepers (GUILTY!) and stomach sleepers out there, these positions can cause deep wrinkles to form on the side of your face and forehead. Luckily, there is a way around this beauty blunder. It’s called the JuveRest Sleep Wrinkle Pillow, and it’s specially designed to minimize facial contact with the pillow, inhibiting sleep wrinkle formation as you sleep.

Here are the benefits:

1. Helps prevent and reduce sleep wrinkles

2. Encourages sleep positions that reduce damage to facial skin

3. Soft and comfortable

4. Promotes correct neck and back anatomical alignment

5. Multi-patented design for women and men of any age

6. Helps maintain a youthful appearance

7. Easy solution—all you have to do is sleep!

8. Special high quality, soft, open-cell, resilient foam for comfortable support

9. Open structure allows efficient air circulation, keeping you cooler at night

So if you’ve been suffering from sleep wrinkles and are about one night’s sleep shy of a Botox appointment, why not give JuveRest a try? The only thing you have to lose is an aging face.

Reasons to Use Absorbent Powder

Share on Twitter3 Share on Facebook1 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

 
Today’s question revolves around reasons to use absorbent powder, or "mattifying powder". You want to use an absorbent powder if you have oiliness within your T-zone, or if you feel that your face gets excessively shiny throughout the day.
 
What you want to look for is a powder that is called a "blotting powder", "an oil control powder", or "mattifying powder".  You can also use oil control papers that replace the need for powder and tend not to leave as much buildup on the skin.
 

I hope this helps, and remember that when you’re using these powders, use them sparingly. You just want to use them on the areas that get too oily or too shiny throughout the day.  Also, be careful not to overpowder, which can lead to a cakey finish on the skin.

Most Popular Makeup Colors for Spring

Share on Twitter3 Share on Facebook2 Share on Pinterest0 Share on Google +11

by Sian Bitner Kearney:

Ladies, it is finally time to put those dreary shades of winter away and embrace the warmth of spring. This season’s shades are electric; popping with hints of orange, blue, purple and more. So say bye-bye to those neutrals and prepare to have some serious fun with color as we introduce the season’s hottest beauty trends!

Lips:
Lips are absolutely bursting with color this season in neon shades of orange, fuchsia, and hot pink. The colors work great as the focal point of your look or as a compliment to a smokey eye at night.
Eyes:
Cobalt blue is the “it” color for eyes this season and there are so many ways to rock it! For an intense look, use a cobalt eyeshadow solo or layer it over a black shadow. If you’re living life on the subtle side, top off a neutral eye with cobalt blue eyeliner to add some edge to the every day.
Cheeks:
The cheek color of the season is berry. If you’re fair skinned, select a lighter, subtler shade. For medium to dark complexions, you will want to stick with a deep berry shade. Steer clear of sparkles though; this color is wild enough to stand on its own without the added drama.
Nails:
Yellow is the fun color for spring and the variations of the shade that you choose to wear are completely up to you. For day or for the office, shoot for a pale yellow. For a night on the town, pump up the brightness with a canary or neon shade of yellow.
Remember, these looks are both bold and beautiful but shouldn’t necessarily be worn together. Pick one or two areas to brighten up, and stay neutral everywhere else. Now go grab your favorite spring dress and leave winter in your rear view!

A Girls Gotta Spa!

a-girls-gotta-spa-energizing-citrus-body-wash

When you read a "You Deserve to Be Pampered" you know you are in for something special.  And the two new products from A Girls Gotta Spa! are just that....special.

I asked founder Shannon Smyth what her inspiration was for creating this new line, and she said "I believe every woman deserves to be pampered. I know this as a mom of 4 boys...but it goes for every woman no matter what season in life they are. We all need to take care of ourselves, which can be accomplished even in the simpliest action of applying lotion or body wash".

a-girls-gotta-spa-energizing-citrus-body-lotion

I truly love that both the products are free of harmful ingredients, and don't try to pretend to be a "miracle".  They are the best body wash and best lotion for dry skin because they are simple and pure.  They are free of sulfates, formaldehyde, petrochemicals, synthetic colors and fragrances. They are also made in small batches, to ensure the best and highest quality...which I love.  I adore the natural body wash and natural body lotion because they make my skin feel like butter, and I know I am not putting anything harmful on my skin.  Another thing I adore?  The scent!  It is energizing and refreshing.  My perfect morning wake me up. 

Here are the details: 

  • Vegan and Cruelty Free
  • Recyclable packaging
  • Shelf life of 6 months after opening

USE THE CODE FREESHIP until March 21st, 2014!
