Green Goo and You! What you and your Valentine need!

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy final week of January! How was it for you? Mine was fast and furious with the work trips to CES in Las Vegas and then Park City Utah for Sundance.

Phew!

I came home to some lovely samples from Green Goo Helps – in my humble opinion one of the best natural skincare products that really focuses on healing the skin and is made in the USA!

Check out the Makeup University Facebook page for a Facebook Live session demonstrating the products!

Now, meet Green Goo Bath Salts in Relief with eucalyptus and mint!

Our Mineral Bath Salts are harvested from the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Evaporated by the sun and ocean air, this all-natural sea salt has a lovely trace mineral content that produces a beautiful, high quality bath salt. Well known for easing muscle tension and promoting overall relaxation. Perfect for soothing sore muscles, relaxing soaks, and calming foot baths.
Eucalyptus revitalizes sore, achy muscles and helps to clear and soothe congestion. Relax, relieve, and enjoy the tranquility.   16 ounces for $27.95
My experience:  I’m not a bath tub soaker kinda gal – there’s just something about sitting in your own stew.  But, I do like to get my fancy home foot spa out and fill it up with goodies like this Green Goo bath salts!  The smell is amazing and the aromatherapeutic properties of the eucalyptus and mint wafts up to my nose so I get the benefits of the foot soak as well as the scent.  I know it’s supposed to be “relief” but I found it invigorating!
A delicious blend of organic oil and herbs, with mineral sea salt, designed to gently exfoliate and moisturize your skin while improving circulation, leaving you with a soft, youthful, nourished glow.
Rise Up with grapefruit, bergamot, and ginger as it energizes your senses while warming the body.
Rise Up Like The Sun.
 
My story: OMG!  This is one of my all time favorite type of body products next to really good creams.  I tried this as a hand scrub, foot scrub and then my entire body. It’s vigorous love in a tub. The scent is warm, bright, invigorating and the texture of the scrub is a gritty smooth. Does that make sense? It’s scrubby without being ouchy. The best part? It’s oily.  It’s got enough oil and oil reserve in the tub to make a nice paste to place on a rough body part and give a good rubbin’.  I’m in lovin’! 
 
With all of the products from Green Goo, you can trust the ingredients to be  natural, gluten free, cruelty free, and that the containers are made from recycled ingredients. It’s just good stuff from Lyons Colorado!
 
If you get to the website now, you can get some gifts in time for Valentine’s Day!
 
Go get it! 

Remember: you are beautiful!

Have You Tried Serendipity Skincare?

Hi ya Gorgeous!Oh this 2018 is a real go getter! I’ve been on the go since it started and I kicked off the year with a DJ gig on New Year’s Eve!  So fun!  After that it’s been one amazing event after another and I’m so looking forward to what February has in store for me!

Now, that cold snowy but dry Utah weather did a number on my skin!  Good thing I came home to a sample of Serendipity Serenade repairing night cream!

I’ve used it a couple of nights now and love the rich and creamy texture, very light scent and how hydrating it feels on my skin. Join me on the Makeup University Facebook page for a Facebook Live where I will be showing you the product close up!

Here’s a little note from the Serendipity website:

A potent yet gentle blend of invigorating natura ingredients including cotton thistle and palm tree extract gives your skin a boost in the battle against dry, damaged skin. Use overnight for a visibly radiant and refreshed complexion.

$75.00  for 1 ounce.

It’s important to take care of your skin with a good regimen of cleaning, treating and moisturizing! So no matter who’s brand you use, just be sure and use it daily!

Now for comparison, I have used a different brand for a long time, and it is a 1.7 ounce tub for the same price, and can be found at Ulta Beauty for a little bit less in price. So, I’m expecting this cream to out perform my normal brand for selling at the same price point while providing less product.  Stay tuned!

How to Heal Dry Itchy Winter Skin with DermaSolve Heal Fast Stop Itch Spray

Hi ya Gorgeous!Today I have a short video to introduce you to a simple solution for dry itchy skin in the easy to use form of a spray!

Meet the DermaSolve Stop Itch Spray with Neem oil!

My son has pilaris keratosis and it’s always itchy and bumpy!  He uses the DermaSolve blue salicylic acid wash to help exfoliate the bumps and soften the skin to receive a follow up application of lotion.

His 12 year old self is not the most diligent about doing a two step process of treating his upper arms – but – he sure does like to do a quick spray to alleviate some itchiness!

I also have a sample of the HealFast Repair Cream and Ovagen eye cream and just in time before I head to the snow!

Now is a time to invest in great skincare products to help keep your skin hydrated and protected during the harsh winter weather!

Dermasolve Stop Itch Spray is a safe and natural anti-itch spray made with organic neem oil, tea tree oil, aloe vera juice, lavender, lemongrass and cedar oils. Stop Itch Spray is formulated to provide gentle comfort for serious skin irritations. It can be applied right onto the itch or all over the body including the hair and scalp.

This can reduce itching and scratching and atually prevent further complications associated with skin conditions.

12 Days of Good Gifts to Give and Get – featuring Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder

Hi ya Gorgeous!Happy Thursday – whoa – this month is speeding by! How is your holiday celebrations going? Are you doing any new events or making a new tradition?  My family is doing the usual, but I swear, it feels like it is happening so fast!

I have finally gotten all of the lil wee gifts for my son’s stocking and the funny thing about the stocking is that, it’s the smallest yet it usually costs the most since I usually pack it full of gift cards to his favorite restaurants and game store!

So today in the 12 Days of Good Gifts to Give and Get – I am featuring the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder.  Why? Because it’s awesome. If you have not tried any makeup from Laura Mercier, it’s time you do. I’m a huge fan of her powder, lipsticks. liners, and bronzer. In fact, her bronzer is my go to for most every day!

Secret Brightening Powder – # 1 ( For Fair to Medium Skin Tones ) – Laura Mercier 
Lighter-than-air powder sets and prolongs the wear of concealer, camouflage, and other under eye products. Instantly brightens eye area.
Brightening Finish
Transparent white powder has a brightening finish that instantly adds a lightening boost to the eye area, with a touch of sheer coverage. Works on any skin tone.
Just for Eyes
Micronized pigments won’t settle into fine lines, accentuate shadows, or look cakey, even in the tricky eye area where many setting powders are less than ideal.

Please note, this is really intended for just under the eyes and anywhere that needs a highlighting, so it’s not for the entire face – so why buy two different powders? Because this is something that takes great care of a delicate area on the face! It’s worth it!

Get yours on Amazon, on at www.lauramercier.com
