Thirsty Face?

Is your skin parched, flaky,wrinkled, chapped, dull, etc??   I could go on but I think you get the drift...
Give it a big thirst quenching drink with my new favorite mask from the Olay Professional ProX line.  The 'Intensive Treatment Mask' is truly amazing.  There is actually the product amount of a full size moisturizer in one mask packet. I've started doing it every Monday to start the week right, and  rehydrate after whatever damages have been done over the weekend. I can literally feel my skin sucking in the serum and saying "thank you!"  It makes my skin look supple, dewy, and fresh in only 10-15 min of sitting with the gooey slippery cloth mask on my face.  Yes, when it's on you sort of look like a Mexican wrestler, but once it's off you look like you just came from a spa weekend at Canyon Ranch.
 Each set comes with 5 masks, if you are looking for some quick anti aging results do all 5 in a row to turn back time. Since I'm still 26 I am using it more for a maintenance tool. So I use it once a week, also I'm on a budget so I try to stretch it out.  Although I may try the 5 in a row soon just cause I love the feel of it that much.  I am even going to start using it on my clients that have dry skin before I do their makeup cause it preps the skin unlike anything I've seen before.

It's easily accesible, you can find it at Target, CVS, or anywhere else that you would find your usual Olay products.  It is $69 for the set of 5, so it's not exactly cheap, but definitely worth it and beats out the comparable product lines who's similar mask treatments range from $140 and up.
  Here's how you use it:
 Remember to make use of all the product provided, after you're done with the mask, squeeze out the remaining serum in the packet and rub it into your neck and chest and wherever else you feel needs a little extra lift and hydration.

Get Ready for a TAN-talizing Summer

Every girl knows that the most coveted beauty essential for summer is a gorgeous bronzed glow. But who wants to deal with the all the damages that the sun will cause to your skin? Certainly not me.. I plan on keeping my skin baby soft and wrinkle free.  So when your covered by SPF70, hats and umbrellas how is a girl supposed to get that natural sun kissed look?
Being a naturally pasty pale type, I have done my fair share of bronzing research and trials.  After experiencing the good the bad and the seriously ugly, I have come out with a few wonderful products that I just could not fathom baring my bikini body without.


Get all the color without having shimmer all over your face... don't get me wrong I love shimmer, but it has to be placed wisely or you'll just look like a shiny mess.
An all natural favorite that looks and feels great on your skin. The two toned compact gives you the color and the gold shimmer to create the perfect healthy glow.

So incredibly natural and easy! A very light weight mist that goes on light, dries quick, and actually smells good too! Gives a very natural glow, you can control how dark you want to go by just adding more. 

A drugstore favorite that doesn't disappoint. Just use it in place of your moisturizer after the shower and you'll be glowing in no time! Also has vitamin E in it to keep your skin nice and smooth. 

A good for you glow that is packed with their t5 fruit complex, a potent antioxidant blend that restores and refines your skin with each application. This glow really works from the outside in and the inside out! 
Great color with no commitment, washes off with soap and water but won't rub off on clothes once you rub it in to your skin.  

There you go! Now you have no excuse for frying your skin under the summer sun!
