Sally Hansen’s At-Home Gel Manicure Kit will change your life!

THINK: Salon results at home, no manicurist necessary.

I was sent this kit to try out for myself, and I have to admit – I was very skeptical. I’ve had shellac manicure’s done in the salons, and I couldn’t imagine doing that MYSELF at home, and having it turn out half as good as it does in the salons. Boy – was I MAJORLY wrong. This kit is so easy, so user-friendly, if you can paint your nails – you can give yourself a shellac manicure at home.

What do you spend when you go for a gel manicure? $25? That’s what I spend! Now, you can save HUNDREDS of dollars doing the exactly same manicure in your own home! It is so simple to use, you won’t believe it!

I’m wearing the gel polish I put on last week, and it still looks brand new – like the day I put it on. I will NEVER go back to the salon again. Not when I can do it myself – at home!

Best part is, the kit is super affordable! I can’t believe this only cost $70. Pick one up yourself, they’re available now!!

WHAT IT IS: The at-home alternative to a salon mainstay: the gel manicureProfessional, high-shine, no dry time and long-wear—these are the qualities that have made millions of women gel manicure converts. But as any gel manicure devotee can attest, these perks are also what make the manicures so expensive—and time-consuming. That’s why the innovators at Sally Hansen are taking the manicurist out of the equation and putting professional results at your fingertips with the new Salon InstaGel Strips™ and Salon GelPolish™, two unique systems that equip you with everything you need to replicate a state-of-the-art gel manicure. Delivering mirror shine, no dry time and indestructible, chip-free wear for up to 14 days, each easy-to-apply system makes you your own manicurist at afraction of the price.

Kinerase Advanced Lotion, Cream & Eye Cream – best skincare combo on the market?

I have very temperamental skin. Over the years I have tried many, many lotions. My skin freaks out half the time, by breaking out or getting overly dry, or blotchy. Kinerase is one of the few brands that when I try it, my skin says….. “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah you’re home.” It is quite honestly the most perfect lotion I’ve tried in a long time. I’ve had my hands on this lotion for a couple weeks now – and I held off writing this review until I tried it for a while. I can honestly say I have never felt better. My skin absolutely GLOWS. It moisturizes my skin, without leaving it feeling greasy or heavy. It has reduced the lines around my eyes – those lines so lovingly called crow’s feet! I can’t wait to see how my skin will further change – over the next month or two!

Here’s more about the lotion!

WHAT IT IS:

* New, improved lightweight lotion formula with HA3 Technology™ and clinical-strength Kinetin.
* Gentle, non-prescriptive retinoid alternative
* Formulated to provide superior moisturization for even the most sensitive skin.

WHAT IT DOES:

* Moisturizes dry, sensitive skin while supporting skin’s natural production of hyaluronic acid.
* Visibly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by delaying the age related changes in cells.
* Helps hydrate dry, rough skin by increasing the amount of moisture retained in the skin by 25% in 24 weeks.
* Minimizes the appearance of freckles and brown spots, and lessens the look of blotchy, uneven skin tone.

KEY INGREDIENTS:

* Kinetin (.1% N6 Furfuryladenine): A nature identical plant cytokinin clinically proven to help the skin to retain moisture, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without irritation.
* HA3 Technology™ (N-acetyl-glucosamine-6-Phosphate): Retinol alternative that helps support the skin’s natural ability to produce hyaluronic acid. Complements Kinetin to improve skin’s appearance in a gentle, effective way.

POINTS OF DIFFERENCE:

* Improved texture formulated for oily skin, combination skin, younger skin, and use during warmer months and in warmer climates.
* Helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by delaying the age related changes in skin cells.
