Great bronzer if you don’t mind spots!


I just tried the Clinique Self-Sun Bronzer and I was not that impressed. I prepped my skin with a body scrub and then applied the lotion carefully making sure I rubbed it in well and used an even amount. The first day the bronzer looked good and I liked that it didn’t smell like self tanner. My problem was the second day the bronze color had faded and I had streaks and spots on my arms and legs.  Overall I think you can get a much better self tanning bronzer from the drugstore.

Safe is the new sexy, so find a sunless way to give your skin a natural-looking bronze radiance. This daily body moisturizer with a touch of self-tanner provides an allover, faux glow. Just smooth on this mistake-proof formula to gradually build or maintain even colour. Skin feels soft, looks luminous.

I’d like to introduce a new brand to the site! Qtica Smart Spa!

To be honest, I had never heard of Qtica.  Never seen it, never heard of it.  Then I received a package full of these great samples, and thought – might as well give it a shot! 

After trying it, I’m quite sure I’ll be hearing more about Qtica.  I tried their Grapefruit Surprise and Lemon Dream Sugar Scrub, and OH MY GOSH… it is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!  It smoothes the skin, leaving you feeling soft and snuggly all day. :)

The best exfoliating product ever created-that’s why it’s a BEST-SELLER. Non-drying and non-irritating formula is easy on delicate skin. Takes hassle-free to a new level; no mixing or stirring needed, ever! The key word is sugar-that means that it’s a clean-dissolving exfoliant that will never leave a sticky residue behind or harm/clog spa jets. This is a spa-quality product for both manicures and pedicures, and also a convenient all-over body polish, perfect for daily use all over the body in the shower.

USAGE: After soaking towel dry feet and apply exfoliating sugar scrub, concentrate on rough, dry patches.

SCENT: Refreshing pink grapefruit wake-up call.

Mama Mio!


You might not have heard of Mama Mio yet, but they have jumped the pond and are storming the US with great body care products. Originally marketed to pregnant women Mama Mio is garnering a big audience with women have already had kids or are looking to take care of their body and stop the signs of aging. I recently had the chance to try some of Mama Mio’s products and I can see what everyone is raving about here are a few of my favorite products from their body care line:


To start the list my favorite product from the Mama Mio line is their boob tube, boob tubes claim to fame is protecting your skin on your breasts as they grow with your pregnancy. Better yet for women who have already had their kids or are just fighting aging it helps lift and firm the skin on your chest.

After two kids my body shows the battle scars of pregnancy and I was excited to see if anything could help. I thought it was too good to be true but within a few days I could see the stretch marks my pregnancy had left on my chest were diminishing. The most amazing thing though was how great my skin looked after a week of use my skin was much firmer and to my delight the girls even looked more perky. I am so in love with this I might just start a campaign for Costco sized bottles.

Note: You might find your hubby is frequently loitering near the bathroom waiting to watch or help you with the application.

Boob Tube
