Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday. Whoa. Do I ever love a Monday. You know, I get more accomplished on a Monday than I do all week! Or at least that is what it  feels like!

Today is no different – I have already got massive action taken on many things and goals and even got the wheels turning on a return to the Monday blog and video posts for Makeup University.

In case you didn’t know, I have been in Tucson for the past three weeks while my son attended the University of Arizona for tech camp and I completed production on BEARLY film.

Phew!

So in this blog post and video – meet the moisturizer known as

L’Oreal Revitalift  Triple Power Deep-Acting Facial Moisturizer!

This is a free sample from Influenster and  I arrived home to it. Oh if only I had this in Tucson with me! It was so hot and dry there my skin became dryer and itchy!

In my #RevitaliftChallenge – I’m using the sample twice a day for 14 days with photos along the journey to track the results. So far I’m loving it!  This product does have a  heavy perfume scent – I can smell my face for about an  hour after applying. The scent does not bother me though if you are sensitive to smells, this could  be an issue for you.

You can find L’Oreal Revitalift and  other goodies at mass retailers nationwide OR – be cool and stay home and just have it auto-delivered by Amazon!

Remember: you are beautiful!

Hi ya GorgeousWhoa – how about that Walking Dead episode? I still. Nope. Still can’t believe it!

What I do believe is that this is quite possibly the best answer to long wearing foundations combined with baking a powder on top of it and then multiple layers of contour, highlight and bronzer plus eyeshadows and eyeliner with mascara: Micellar Water from La Roche Posay.

This brand is so good! It’s so popular in Europe and the rest of the world though in the United States it is slowly becoming a beauty fan favorite.

Why? Because it’s effective while being gentle and not containing parabens. Expect it to be in the $20 or under range.

 

Check it out:

You can find it at CVS and Ulta Beauty or online. You are supposed to use it with cotton balls, but in my life, I don’t have time for that. I use it on a wash cloth.

Now it says that you don’t need rinsing. That is so French skincare to not need rinsing. You know why? Because there in the flats of Paris and surrounding French cities, they did not have access to water as easily and the plumbing isn’t always consistent, so the ladies of olde had to use creams to remove their makeups and the tradition just stuck.

Here is from the brand:
leanses down to pollution particles. Removes what you see and even what you can’t see.

 

  • Dirt-encapsulating micelles cleanse skin from dirt, oil, makeup, and even pollution particles
  • Gentle and refreshing water-like formula that’s mildly scented
  • Use as a daily no-rinse cleanser, makeup remover, and/or toner

Micellar Water is a no rinse cleansing water for all skin types

Dirt-encapsulating micelles
Naturally lift dirt, oil, makeup, and pollution upon contact with the skin and no harsh rubbing necessary.

Poloxamer
A mild cleanser so gentle it is used in contact lens solution

La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water
Antioxidant-rich water to soothe skin

WHAT IS A MICELLAR WATER?
Micellar waters are no rinse cleansers that take their name from
micelles, the microscopic cleansing agents that are used in their
formulas. These micelles have a lipophilic core that attract oil and
impurities

HOW DOES IT WORK?
When micelles interact with the skin, they naturally lift dirt, oil,
makeup, and even pollution on contact with no harsh rubbing necessary.

WHAT DOES IT DO?
Makeup and impurities are trapped in the micelles oil absorbing core and
are dissolved from the skin leaving it perfectly cleansed, hydrated and
refreshed. No rinse necessary.

Hello Gorgeous!
Mother’s Day, my birthday, and my triathlon are all on the same day! I just may have this Fresh Face Water by L’Occitane in my workout bag.
There is something very French about skincare that is more moisturizing than what the desert dwellers of Arizona do.

Back in the day-way back in the day, when France did not have the running water and plumbing in housing tenements like we enjoy now, water was a precious commodity. So the French women would use cleansing milks and use a slightly  damp washcloth to remove their makeup and clean their faces.

Part of that cleansing routine is using something like the L’Occitane Fresh Face Water. So you would use your facial cleanser and then mist your face with this L’Occitane product or spritz it onto a washcloth and wipe off the cleanser. This method of cleansing sure saves water!  It also tones and moisturizes.

I’m thinking it’s a good thing to keep in my travel beauty bag that is always in my car-(frozen cold pack goes in every morning to keep things from melting!) or pack it in my tri training bag to clean the sweat off before makeup!

L’Occitane has so much to offer f or Mother’s day gifts-visit www.loccitane.com to find a location near you or you can order online!

 A gentle alcohol-free makeup remover rich in shea extract and floral waters that moisturizes and tones skin in one step. Apply morning and evening, alone or in conjunction with a cleansing milk. Respects the fragility of the eye area. It’s just $20.00 for a 6.7 oz bottle.
