Mio Future Proof

 

61Fue4SYy0L._SX522_

The last month or so I have been bouncing back and forth between oils and lotions trying to hydrate my skin. While most of them felt good when I applied within minutes my skin had a slight parched feeling again. I jumped at the opportunity to try Mio Future Proof and see how it worked. From this first application I could tell this wasn’t an ordinary body butter.

When I first opened the tub I noticed how amazing Future Proof smells amazing, the essential oils give it the most fantastic refreshing scent. I applied to my skin right out of the shower, and instantly I could feel how different it was. Its thick, buttery and incredibly rich but immediately melted into my skin. My skin felt hydrated in a way I hadn’t experienced before and it was silky smooth to the touch.

After a full weeks use I can say my skin definitely has a healthy glow to it. No more dry patches and it has even started firming my skin up a bit. It’s definitely a product you need to try to believe. I love that is not only has hydrated my skin like no other product has been able to but its packed with antioxidants to improve the look and feel of my skin.  My skin has never  felt so soft, and had such a deep sense of hydration. This is definitely a must have going forward.

Lancome’s NEW DreamTone REALLY works!

lancome-dreamtone-2

I have been using Lancome’s wonderful, new DreamTone for a little over a month now. I have been using it on my hands, and on my face. I have noticed a visible difference in my skin tone! Look at the photo below! The dark spots are CLEARLY fading. I tried to get the lighting to be the same on both days … but this is as close as I could get. The dark spots on my hands from years of tanning are clearly less visible. How do you argue with results like that?

PS: Notice my hot new phone case in the reflection? I’m a fan.

Anyway! Lancome DreamTone Ultimate Dark Spot Corrector is a light tinted cream that targets whatever your skin concerns are. If you have uneven skin like moi – this is the product for you. It makes your skin look even, and corrects dark spots in the meantime! I have always had a red chin (wth) and some discoloration from tanning, and well…. just getting older. This product really, REALLY makes a difference.

DreamTone comes out in a beige color, and blends into your skin, evenly. It makes your skin feel amazing! Beautiful, soft, and smelling like a flower.

I’ve been using this product in place of foundation, because I’ve found I don’t need both! It is a WONDERFUL new product from Lancome, and I think you should all run out and get it immediately!

BUY YOURS HERE!

SJP: The New Collection by Sarah Jessica Parker

all-sjp-sarah-jessica-parker_header_01

The new SJP shoe line has finally arrived! The line doesn’t excite me as much as I hoped, but there are a few gorgeous shoes. From the early reviews I am reading, some of the shoes are amazing and somehow are as comfortable as they are cute.! Definitely need to hit Nordy’s and check these out in person.

Will you be buying anything from the SJP collection?

A Nordstrom exclusive: Sarah Jessica Parker shares the insights and inspirations behind her new line of polished shoes, handbags and apparel.

A few of her new shoes:

SJP-Maud-Sandal-in-Multi-BlackCharcoalWhite
SJP ‘Maud’ Sandal
$375
“I’m so thrilled with the way this shoe developed. It’s no secret this shoe is inspired by the great Maud Frizon. I imagine so many nights spent in this fun, flirty style; the colors demand to be seen and the shoe is longing for an adventure. I love the idea of using multiple colors, simple colors, to create a more unique neutral. It’s a shoe that can go with such a variety of colors and even patterns. And I’m so pleased with how soft the weave feels on the foot.”
-Sarah Jessica Parker

A multihued profusion of delicately interwoven strips lends fashionable finesse to the peep toe of a breezy sandal with a slim, wraparound ankle strap

BIOBLISS Review

ihwx.f2020098-a7b3-4908-add7-682b45ec20e2.1320.1320

Check out these cool BIOBLISS patches I just had the chance to review. They make them for both crow’s feet and the forehead. The science  behind these little patches is they use ion technology, like a micro-current that pushes the anti-wrinkle ingredients (like peptides and hyaluronic acid) deeper into the skin.

You just wash and dry your face, take the patches out of their individual packages and push them firmly onto the skin. They start working on pushing ingredients into your skin right away and you can wear them up to 12 hours. The patches were easy to apply and stay put, I left them on for 2 hours while I painted my nails and watched TV.

I was expecting to feel the micro current or something happening but they are so gentle I forgot they were there. I tried a single use packet and in just one use I saw a big difference in my crows feet. These are meant to be used once a week to deliver the best results. I would be interested to see how they could lessen the look of my deep lines with repeated use.  Definitely a cool technology and they work great for quick results.

BIOBLISS is “Taking Beauty Deeper” with a new level of age correcting skin care. The BIOBLISS Micro-Current Anti-Wrinkle Patch System transforms the most age apparent zones of the face to a revitalized, youthful state with a reservoir of hydration, powerful peptides to restore smoothness and tone, and protective antioxidant shields for a return to younger looking and acting skin like never before.

The simple-to-use BIOBLISS Anti-Wrinkle Patch System is wireless, pain-free, hassle-free and easily disposable after each application. Four targeted skin care treatments complement the Anti-Wrinkle Patch System to cleanse, exfoliate, hydrate and extend the patch effects.

In a recent Clinical Study, 89% of participants saw immediate results after their first 30-minute anti-wrinkle patch application. 100% saw an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles after four weeks. 93% of women in Consumer and Dermatologist Clinical studies reported that BIOBLISS is more effective at reducing their wrinkles than their current anti-wrinkle product.

BIOBLISS offers a more authentic way to treat your skin by insuring that the latest anti-aging ingredients are delivered where your skin needs them most for optimal wrinkle reducing results.
