New! Nautica Voyage N-83

voyage N83

I am a huge fan of aquatic scents on men, they are masculine and fresh and not overwhelming. The new Nautica Voyage N-83 is the perfect aquatic scent for Winter and Spring. The scent is a mix of salty sea breeze, spices and a base of woody musk.

If you are looking for something special for to give your guy on Valentine’s be sure to check out the new Nautica Voyage N-83 its a scent you both will love.

Nautica Voyage N83
Nautica unveils its latest men’s fragrance, Voyage N-83. The scent embodies the feeling of exploration, power, and a bold desire to discover new adventures. The “83” honors the year of the company’s founding and the brand’s rich sailing heritage, where every boat is identified by a unique sail number. Classic, sophisticated, and thrilling, the fragrance evokes crisp salty breezes, rugged spices, and woody musks.
This crisp woody aroma opens with enticing top notes of fresh Ocean Water Accord and Costa Rica’s Junqillat Beach inspired coastline scent with a twist of bright Spearmint and Citrus Petit Grain Essence. The heart of the fragrance uncovers notes of warm Cardamon, Nutmeg, and Lavender. Sensual notes of Musk, Sandalwood, and Cedarwood anchor this exhilarating scent.

“Nautica Voyage N-83 embodies the spirit of independence that comes from charting your own course,” explains Steve Mormoris, Senior Vice President, Coty Beauty Global Marketing. “This fresh new Nautica fragrance salutes the journey that is life, and the man who always keeps the wind at his back.”

“We are pleased to have produced another standout men’s fragrance with Coty,” says Karen Murray, President of Nautica. “Voyage N-83 pays homage to the Nautica brand’s unique history and its connection to the open seas, while also looking forward to the future and the endless possibilities of discovery.”

The Nautica Voyage N-83 bottle design features curved glass and faceted angles to capture the movement of shifting winds and rippling sails. Translucent glass lets you see through to the deep, ocean blue fragrance, while a brushed pewter cap and navy detailing echo the design of a sailboat winch, weathered by the mist of salty seas. Housed in a carton with an authentic nautical map and embossed J-Class sailboat symbol, every design choice reflects the rich, nautical history of the Nautica brand.

New Contest! Fame by Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga Fame 3.4-900x900

 

After the release of her fourth studio album, ARTPOP, Lady Gaga recently announced she would be going back on tour. This spring, Gaga will bring her new album to life for her fans. Her first single from the album, “Applause,” is her 12th top-ten Billboard Hot 100 single in the United States and is currently in its 11th consecutive week in the top 10. There is no doubt, Gaga’s fans are anxiously waiting for her to hit the stage and to see what excitement the ARTPOP show will bring!

In honor of this new tour announcement, MakeHerUp is excited to host a giveaway with her fragrance – Fame by Lady Gaga.

Fame by Lady Gaga ($79): The first ever black Eau de Parfum compounded by LADY GAGA with both floral and fruity notes. The scent is built around three main accords: dark, sensual and light. Enriched with tears of belladonna, a black veil of incense, and pulverized apricot, all of the notes were crafted to work together harmoniously thanks to the complimentary properties of each ingredient, which allow for a true metamorphosis of the scent when worn on skin.

#NeriumAD Final update on our results!

nerium-jl-2

Well our 90 Days Real Results test with NeriumAD has finally come to an end, and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Erin and I took the challenge to use Nerium AD for 90 days – and monitor our progress in three separate posts. (You can read the first post here, and the second here.) As part of the challenge, we were asked to use Nerium twice a day, and share our thoughts on our journey.

About Nerium International:
During advanced research on the uses of the Nerium oleander plant, an accidental discovery was made: the unique properties of Nerium oleander provided remarkable age-defying results when applied to the skin. This finding led to the creation of the NeriumAD skincare line.

Nerium scientists developed a breakthrough process, NBio-PL2, to derive an extract from the Nerium oleander plant in a way that preserves its unique and beneficial properties. This patented extraction process yields the NAE-8 extract, with powerful antioxidant properties, used to formulate the first-of-its-kind, age-defying Nerium product line.

Nerium International is the first company with the exclusive capability to harness the power of the Nerium oleander plant in its skincare products. The product line addresses multiple concerns at once, including: wrinkles, discoloration, and texture. Nerium controls this main active ingredient from seed to bottle, making the Nerium skincare line both high-impact and innovative. This is the Nerium Difference.

Jocelyn: My 90 days Results

Here is my (Jocelyn) before and after pictures. I am and always have been a HUGE skeptic when it comes to before and after photos. A lot of times the difference is subtle, if any. I compared my own before and after pictures, and I have to say, even I’m surprised! The most noticeable difference I found in my skin after using Nerium skincare is my pores are visibly smaller, and the tone/color of my skin is more even. I didn’t photoshop these pics, they came straight off my phone! (Although I should have photoshopped them, it looks like I have a mustache!? WTH.)

As you can see from the pictures, the tone of my skin has clearly changed. The appearance of pores has improved they look smaller, less visible. I have crows feet, and I love how Nerium has improved the appearance of  the crows feet the skin looks firmer and smoother . I think I’m a believer!

Erin: My 90 days Results

I am shocked and delighted to see what a difference 90 days with Nerium can make. At 36 years old I can definitely see the signs of aging creeping in larger pores, crows feet, dull skin tone and wiggly neck skin. When Jocelyn and I were offered the chance to do a 90 day challenge with Nerium I was cautiously optimistic hoping it might make a bit of improvement. Nerium has far surpassed my hopes, the appearance of my overall skin tone and texture has drastically improved   And as you can see from the photos below how big a change just 3 months made.

How fun are these before photos? Uh yeah not fun at all it feels wrong posting them but how else can I share just how great Nerium works? I have no makeup in the photos and did not use any photo shop or filters. You can clearly see from my before and after photos, the texture, tone and firmness of my skin has improved dramatically. One of the biggest changes was around my eyes. I laugh a lot which is a good thing except where wrinkles are concerned all my bouts of laughter have left me with some serious crows feet. But with Nerium AD the skin around my eyes looks firmer and smoother.

If you are ready to try a breakthrough formula that can improve the look and feel of your skin join the Nerium 90-Day Real Results Challenge.
