And the winner is… Heather S! Congratulations.

First day of Spring and whether the forecast in your area is for sun, rain or snow we all know one thing is coming. Longer, warmer days and exposed legs and arms. This is the perfect time of year to get a great new razor and get your legs silky smooth and ready to wow in all your best Spring looks.

They say life is about simple pleasures and one of mine has always been freshly shaved legs, clean sheets and falling asleep to the sound of rain. So basically I am in the trifecta of simple pleasures this time of year. I was looking for a new razor the other day and somehow had a bunch of blades and handles that don’t match. Does that happen to anyone else but me? So I jumped on the chance to review the new Gillette Venus Swirl line, I am a sucker for a great shave.

I love this razor! The Flexiball makes it glide over knees and ankles and gave me such a smooth shave without any knicks or razor burn. The 5 blades meant a quick and thorough shave and I wasn’t needing to do multiple pass overs like some razors need to get a really smooth shave.

The perfect pairing for the new Gillette Venus Swirl Razor is the Olay Violet Swirl shave gel. I love the beautiful purple color of this shave gel and you can see from above just a bit creates a beautiful thick cream. This shave gel smells amazing, like make it in a fragrance please Gillette good. And it creates such a nice rich cream it left my legs silky smooth and soft post shave. This is definitely a must have duo for Spring and Summer.

Gillette Venus Swirl Women’s Razor
The Gillette Venus Swirl Women’s Razor is the first and only razor with Flexiball to contour to tricky areas for a flawless shave. Unlike traditional models that move in two directions, this one moves in multiple directions. This Venus swirl razor, 1 count helps capture what others may miss, and the advanced blades have a MicorFine comb to guide hair to the blades to capture virtually every hair. It includes a cartridge refill and features water activated serum for incredible glide and a smooth and close shave. The Gillette Venus Swirl Women’s Razor features protective cushions for a great shave and an indicator strip that fades when you are no longer getting the optimal shave you need.

Gillette Venus Swirl Razor:

  • The new proprietary FlexiBall™ technology offers a totally unique movement like no other male or female razor on the market. Venus Swirl™ is the first and only razor with the FlexiBall™, moving in multiple directions to navigate all of the tricky areas of a woman’s body. It helps to shave those hard-to-reach places and capture hairs that other razors might miss.
  • Pesky knee and ankle hairs and other tricky areas are no match for Venus Swirl’s new Microfine Comb and five Contour™ Blades. Combined with FlexiBall™ movement, Venus Swirl™ moves like no other razor for flawless skin.
  • Venus Swirl™ is the first Venus razor to feature Gillette’s most advanced blade technology, with five Contour™ blades that cut hair at lower cutting force and have thinner, finer edges — the thinnest in Gillette’s history. The Contour™ blades individually adjust to a woman’s every curve and contour.
  • A water activated MoistureGlide™ Serum surrounds the blades for incredible glide.
  • The beautiful new violet-hued translucent handle combines a swirled pattern and ergonomic gripping design for outstanding control and easy handling for optimal maneuverability over those tricky areas.
  • For a more enriching experience, try Venus™ with a touch of Olay® VioletSwirl™ shave gel with 5x more moisturizers*.
  • Gillette’s best razor and shave gel lineup.

And the winner of the Walgreens #StartsHere Prize pack is…

Congratulation to Lyza Jo! You are the contest winner, please watch your email inbox.

Jocelyn and I have been friends for 29 years now and part of that long term friendship is sharing our goals with each other. We both sat down to pick our top two resolutions for 2015 and wanted to share them with you. Walgreens gave us some fantastic products to help us achieve our goals and even better they are letting us give one of our lucky readers and AMAZING prize package. So keep on reading to see what is on our resolution list this year and make sure to enter the contest!

Erin’s New Year’s Resolutions:

#1 Drink more water.

I think health in general is dependent on getting enough water something I have been lacking. So I have the Contigo Autoseal Grace Water Bottle to help me with this goal.  This BPA-free water bottle features a one-touch AUTOSEAL lid that automatically seals between sips to eliminate spills and leaks. Since I started using it I have already doubled my water intake!

#2 Move More.

I like working out but I can be prone to a hard workout in the morning then getting locked into my desk all day. I am excited to be trying out the  Walgreens Activity Tracker which is way better that  your momma’s old pedometer. This cool little bracelet tracks my steps, calories burned, miles per day and also tracks my sleep. On top of all those nifty features it also shows my texts and phone call so I can keep in the loop even when racking up the miles. My kids loving checking to see how many steps I have gone and its a great reminder to get up and move.

Jocelyn’s New Year’s Resolutions:

# 1 READ MORE!

This has been on my Resolution list for years, and this year I’m finally doing something about it! Erin and I started a book club we call “My Book Club Has a Wine Problem.” We decided it was high time we start reading more – and this year I plan to read, READ, READ! We’ve knocked out a couple books already, and I’m currently tackling the 500-page “Marie Antionette: The Journey” by Antionia Fraser. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year holds for me!

#2 SLOW DOWN

This is a huge problem of mine. My day-to-day life is currently 70 MPH. I need to take a step back, and slow the heck down. I fill my days with so many activities and unnecessary things that I’m not taking the time to slow down and enjoy my life. Enjoy my husband, enjoy my kids. My boys are 12 and 14 and life is happening way to quickly. They will be gone before I know it! I need to really try and tone down my activity level this year and spend some time really focusing on the things that are really important. I think as adults we all get so swept up in our day-to-day lives that we really forget to slow down and enjoy what we actually have. With my kids getting older, I need to grasp onto as much as I can – while I still am able! Soon they won’t want me interfering with anything (but I’ll still try!).

GIVEAWAY: Do you know someone who needs to be blessed this Christmas?

Xmas_gifts_for_women

Erin and I are blessed to have a job that allows us an abundance of amazing beauty products. Products that we’d never pay for ourselves, products we can give to family and friends. We have been talking over the last week or so about wanting to share our goods with a couple of you.

We want to open this giveaway up to you guys. We would really love to send out a couple care packages this holiday season to women who could really use some encouragement. Do you know someone who has been down on their luck lately? Do you know someone who doesn’t get much for Christmas – but always provides for everyone around her? Do you know a woman who could use a little something special for Christmas? I think each of us know that one special person in our life who could just use something really wonderful….and that’s who we’re looking for.

We would love for you to nominate that person to receive a special beauty gift box from Make Her Up.

Here’s how to nominate your special woman:

In the comments below, please include: (You can also email your nominations to makeherup[at]hotmail.com

  • Your woman’s age (will help us determine which products to send)
  • How you know the woman
  • Why you feel this woman should receive the gift box
  • Please DO NOT include their name. We will reach out to you and get that info at the end.
  • YOUR CURRENT EMAIL ADDRESS

We will pick 2 women, an older woman and a younger woman (because of the product types). 

We will send a boxed gift to your woman, and include your letter/comment that won them the gift.

We’ll give this a couple weeks, because we’d really like to choose the winner carefully.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

First thing I tried was the Sensi-Stop strips. After the first use I noticed a huge relied in sensitivity. Now a sip of cold water or hot coffee doesn’t send me into orbit with pain. I have been using the Sensi-Care Rinse and Sensi-Repair Toothpaste for a week now and I kind of forgot I had sensitivity issues. I’m now able to enjoy hot and cold food and beverages without the old pain.  If you suffer from sensitivity you know how much it sucks, enter below to win this new collection and banish sensitivity for good!
