Avoid Summer Fashion Mishaps with Miss Oops!

Dressing up in the summertime is a thrilling, fabulous experience – short shorts, low-back dresses, free-flowing frocks – the list of flirty and fun pieces is endless! However, what’s less-than-thrilling and certainly not fabulous? Keeping tabs on those annoying deodorant stains, that bit of bulge against your mini-skirt or the inevitable wardrobe-malfunction associated with that gorgeous low-cut top. But with these summer fashion solutions from Miss Oops, you don’t need to worry about those pesky fashion blunders ever again! Miss Oops has answers for any little mishap you might encounter to guarantee fuss-free summer style.

  • The sweaty summer months deem the Rescue Sponge ($10) an essential for any savvy summer stylista. This little red sponge erases any and all deodorant or powder stains that pop up on your clothes and is safe to use on all fabrics.

REVIEW: BABOR Mild Peeling, Self Tanning Foam and Self Tanning Concentrate

This summer, take a safer approach to achieving a desirable sun-kissed look. No need to be exposed to the sun’s harmful rays—prep and prime skin for a faux glow the sun worshipers will envy with BABOR’s Mild Peeling, Self-Tanning Foam and Self Tanning Concentrate.

Start by exfoliating dry, dead cells allowing skin to easily absorb the treatment product. BABOR Mild Peeling, formulated with herbal grains and finely ground peach kernels, gently eliminates surface lines while plant lipids help balance and condition the complexion, prepping skin perfectly for a self-tanner.

The Self Tanning Foam by BABOR adds more than a golden glow. The dual-phase body foam glides on smoothly to provide a streak-free, natural-looking tan while an innovative anti-aging complex containing elderberry extract, tropical almond and tannic acid, firms the skin. Key ingredients vitamin E and amaranth seed oil trap free radicals, promote regeneration and protect skin against UV-induced irritations.

For face, the Self Tanning Concentrate can be added to ANY daytime moisturizer or used alone for a gradual sun-kissed complexion. This quick absorbing, fragrance-free formula immediately reveals a streak-free golden glow.

I love these products because I love getting tan – in a healthy way. The sun just down right scares me. I’m even more afraid of tanning booths – so what’s a girl to do! I’ve tried all three of these products, and I absolutely love them! They don’t look FAKE at all, which is (to me) the #1 most important feature in a self-tanning product. It just looks like you’ve been naturally sun-kissed! Love it!

Stay Bug-Free This Summer with Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard!

Summer is well under way, and July 4th weekend is just around the corner! Whether you’ll be celebrating America the Beautiful by getting your grill on or soaking up the sun on the beach, you’ll want to make sure mosquitoes, gnats and other flying biting insects don’t crash your party. It’s important to take the necessary precautions to prevent bites using proven, effective formulas like Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard insect repellents. Toss the product into your beach bag and have it on-hand at your BBQ’s to protect yourself and your loved ones during your summer soirees.

Avon follows the EPA’s testing guidelines to test insect repellents for effectiveness against biting insects. Avon’s repellants are tested outdoors, in the natural habitats of flying and biting insects to confirm repellency claims against mosquitoes and other certain insects. Avon’s repellents are tested in actual insect biting populations experienced in densely wooded, marshy or swampy areas, ensuring their efficacy wherever your outdoor adventures take you.

Every Avon Skin So Soft Bud Guard product is DEET-free. Skin So Soft Bug Guard insect repellents are suitable for the entire family and contain one of two EPA-registered active ingredients, IR3535® or Picaridin. The entire collection includes:

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Expedition ™ SPF 30 ($14-$16) – This powerful product provides sun and insect protection in one. Available in an Aerosol spray and Pump spray, the formula offers strong, long-lasting protection against mosquitoes, deer ticks, sand flies, gnats, no-seeums and biting midges.

Bug Guard Plus Picaridin ($14-$16) – Offering protection during dusk and dawn, when mosquitoes are more active, this formula repels deer ticks that may transmit Lyme disease and mosquitoes that may carry West Nile virus. Bug Guard Plus Picaridin is available as an Aerosol Spray, Pump Spray and travel-friendly Towelettes.

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® SPF 30 Lotions ($14) – These formula s effectively repel mosquitoes, deer ticks, black flies, sand flies, gnats, no-seeums and biting midges. Aloe and Vitamin E-enriched formulas are available as a Gentle Breeze Lotion and Cool ‘n Fabulous Disappearing Color Lotion.

Read and follow label direction and precautions to ensure proper usage and effectiveness.

If you forget to use your Bug Guard insect repellent, Avon has the care you need with new Skin So Soft Bug Guard Anti-Itch Spray ($10), providing temporary relief to itching insect bites and soothes with Avon’s formula. It does not repel insects.
