Erin’s Christmas Must-Have #10

bannerfans_9855103(1)

If you have someone special you want to pamper this year spoil them with a top notch spa facial they can do at home. Or if you have a special holiday party coming up and want to look your best under the mistletoe this one is not to be missed.

The Kinara Red Carpet facial is a 5 piece kit. It contains a facial peel, neutralizer, mask, treatment blow and brush. The peel removes dead skin cells to make your skin refined, brighter and more hydrated. The neutralizer revitalizes dull, tired skin by deep cleaning. The mask hydrates, soothes and oxygenates your skin. Everything is applied with the treatment brush and bowl that’s included.

My skin is on the sensitive side so per the instructions I have been using this once a week. If you have have oily skin  you can use it every day for 30 days and then twice a week after that. So how do you use it?

  1. Brush on one teaspoon of the peel, leave for 1-3 minutes feel a slight tingle
  2. Neutralize the peel. Brush on one teaspoon you feel a bit of a fizz when you apply it then let it sit for 60 seconds and wipe off.
  3. Next, brush on the hydrating mask and let it sit for 15 minutes.
  4. Rinse and you are done!

Even with just one use my skin felt fantastic. It leaves my skin feeling really smooth and the best part it how bright my skin looks. It adds a healthy glow that will have people asking what you are doing differently.

So maybe you are thinking $145 for an at home peel? Well my darlings this is not for just one peel the kit will actually give you 24 peels! So really you are looking at $6 per peel which is a steal compared to even the best deal at the spa. And if you order by 12/24 and get the sale price its actually only $4.83 per peel.

If you are looking to banish dull winter skin I would recommend this amazing kit that will have your skin glowing in no time!

Introducing Aerin Beauty!

mhu-reviews-1215-4

“Amber Musk is a warm, inviting scent you want to wrap yourself in – like a soft cozy blanket on a cold snowy night.” – Aerin Lauder.

Aerin Lauder is Estee Lauder’s granddaughter. Aerin founded her lifestyle brand in 2011, and since has created many popular items for her cosmetics, home goods, accessories and purses. Estee Lauder released five of Aerin’s perfumes in 2013, Gardenia Rattan, Amber Musk, Lilac Path, Ikat Jasmine, and Evening Rose. With the five scents, Aerin wanted to capture the scent for each mood and time of year.

Each of the fragrances were developed with the help of Firmenich perfumers. The collection was inspired by Aerin’s favorite fabrics, and the outer boxes by designs from her line. Each bottle has a different stone as the cap, representing the color of one of the ingredients in the perfume. Green for Gardenia Rattan, pale brown for Amber Musk, pink for Lilac Path, white for Ikat Jasmine and purple for Evening Rose.

I have tried Amber Musk, and I’m in love. AERIN Beauty Amber Musk blends sensual florals, distinctive amber and creamy musk. Ambrox makes a velvety first impression, contrasted by a succulent burst of Coconut Water and the femininity of Rose Centifolia Absolute. Like the glow of amber flames, lingering Benzoin & Musk infuses the fragrance with warmth.

Introducing Resvology!

mhu-reviews-1215-8

It all started ten years ago with National Institutes of Health-funded research grant on how to stabilize naturally occurring molecules for use in cancer treatment. Inspired by the resulting novel technology, our ever-curious researchers applied it to resveratrol and the uniquely stable 4-AR Molecule™ was born.  Gene studies confirmed their suspicions – 4-AR Molecule™ offers superior bioavailability, and is capable of activating 85 key skin genes vital for healthy, youthful-looking skin.

I’ve been using the eye cream and the wrinkle treatment for over a month now, and I’m LOVING them. I think it’s a combination of stress and getting older, but my eyes have aged 10 years in the last month! I’ve been using the eye cream every night before bed, and I have noticed a visible difference when I wake up! Combine that with the wrinkle treatment (for those ever-so-lovely wrinkles of mine) and I’m in love!

A multitasking formula that offers an antioxidant serum, powerful anti-aging treatment and hydrating moisturizer in one. Vitamins A, C & E aid in promoting a smooth radiant complexion, while reducing wrinkles and fine lines.

Resvology® with 4-AR Molecule™ Age Corrective Eye Cream (0.5 Fl. Oz. (25 mL) – $89)

Resvology® with 4-AR Molecule™ Gentle Cleansing Gel (4.5 Fl. Oz. (135 mL) – $29)

Our first post we introduced you to the NeriumAD line and now we want to share and how we  have added NeriumAD to our daily beauty routine. In our final post we will include a before and after photo so you can see our actual results from using the Nerium skincare line as well as reading what we think of the products.

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 Morning Beauty Routine!

I have to say I’ve been using this Nerium AD for the past almost two months…. and I have been so happy with the results. My skin has two types during the winter. Dry and Painful. That’s about it. I have to be VERY careful with my skin in the winter because of how sensitive it is. We live in Oregon. We should have great weather for skin. Slightly warmer than cold, damp, and not too hot or too cold. The middle ground is perfect for skin. Usually – I don’t have such a hard time. But lately, my skin has been achey. It’s been dry and painful! I was my face with a gentle lotion twice a day. I start off in the morning using Nerium AD in the morning – after washing  my face, and then after washing at night, I finish off with Nerium AD at night.

CYMERA_20131213_112726

Believe it or not – after following this routine for the past 8+ weeks, my skin HAS NOT done what it has every other winter. I have been able to stave off the extreme skin conditions. The lotion helps soothe my achey skin, and has kept me from having to deal with the troublesome skin I’ve had to deal with in the past.

I apply Nerium AD in the morning, and it helps protect and heal my skin. I follow up again at night, and the two products combined have changed my life.

CHANGED MY LIFE!

My pores are smaller, my skin is softer, my crow’s feet are all but gone, and the skin under my eyes is tighter! I am OBSESSED with this line, and I’m trying to figure out how I can use it for the rest of my life. Hold while I check on that.

Now Erin and I can get back to what we do best………..

Erin: My Nightly Beauty Routine

In the Pacific NW we have been hit with unseasonably dry, cold weather. We are accustomed to rainy, mild winters but the last two weeks it has been incredibly dry with temps dipping into the single digits. This cold, dry weather normally would wreak havoc on my skin. But even after long days out in the cold and wind shopping for gifts or taking the kids to the tree farm my skin has been looking and feeling great thanks to Nerium.

CYMERA_20131212_195920

At night, my routine includes washing my face with a cleansing brush to ensure I get all the dirt, toxins and makeup off. Then I use 4 pumps of NeriumAD nighttime and apply it all over my face, neck, and chest. Nerium is so easy to use, instead of the multiple bottles I use to need at night, I just need my Nerium. I look forward to the clean scent, and how great my skin feels when I apply it.

CYMERA_20131212_195824

Once I have applied, I can jump into bed while Nerium goes to work improving the appearance of the texture, tone and wrinkles on my face. I love how balanced this serum is I wake up the next day and my skin feels really hydrated but not greasy at all. I am starting to see some real changes in my skin. Along with an improved clarity, I love how much firmer and more radiant my skin looks. Can’t wait to share the final results of my NeriumAD challenge and show you my before and after pics.
