New Contest! Enter to win the Amazing Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt


Have you read my review on this amazing exfoliating product, check it out here. Seriously the best exfoliator I have ever used, my skin is like buttah after using this magical little tool.

Well the awesome team at Dermasuri is letting me give one of these awesome mitts away, check out below to enter!

Miracle Mitt Brings Beauty Secrets from the East to West

Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt is a luxurious new beauty tool that visibly removes dead skin cells and rolls them off to reveal healthy, glowing skin instantaneously. Dermasuri, a name created from the word “derma” meaning skin and “suri” meaning scrub in Japanese, uses a unique fabric texture that provides the benefits of expensive spa services like microdermabrasion and scrub treatments at a fraction of the cost.

Originating from the traditional Hammams of Turkey and Morocco, Japanese and Korean baths, Dermasuri studied these ancient Eastern exfoliating secrets to develop a product that delivered the same result. Unlike loofahs or bath sponges, the mitt is made of an effective viscose material that can be used in the shower to deeply exfoliate, prep the skin for tanning or waxing, or as a dry-brushing tool.

Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt smoothes skin, stimulates collagen, improves circulation, reduces ingrown hairs and clogged pores, helps even skin tone and dullness, removes impurities and increases the absorption of skin care products making it one of the best skin exfoliators for the body.

Friends since childhood, the co-founders discovered that the commonalities of their soft, youthful looking skin led back to the traditions of their Middle Eastern and Japanese ancestry. After extensive international research and product testing, Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitt was born.

Dermasuri Deep Exfoliating Mitts can be purchased for $19.99 each at

Known for big and bold fashion, celebrity makeup artists will exclusively use Mary Kay® products on the show airing October through January.

Exude the confidence of Alyssa Milano with insider beauty tips from Mary Kay Glam Squad celebrity makeup artist, Virginia Linzee


Begin with Mary Kay TimeWise Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation for glowing skin that looks flawless on the red carpet. Don’t forget to bring the foundation down the neck for all over flawless coverage and blend evenly using a cosmetic sponge. Using the Mary Kay Facial Highlighting Pen, smooth under the eyes, on the cheekbones, and down the bridge of the nose to instantly brighten the face.

Add warmth and dimension to the skin with Mary Kay Mineral Powder in a shade that is two shades darker than your own skin tone. Using an angled cheek brush, lightly dust the powder along the hairline, in the hollows of the cheekbones, under the chin and down the neck to define the angles of your face. Sweep a little Mineral Cheek Color in Citrus Bloom onto the apples of the cheeks, using a blush brush.


To keep your eyes red carpet worthy all night, start with a little Mary Kay Eye Primer. For eyes like Alyssa’s, use the Mary Kay At Play Baked Eye Trio in Tuxedo. Start with the silver on the eyelid. Then use a crease brush to blend the black shade into the crease, as well as the outside part of the eyelid and in the lower lash line. Finally, use a brush to blend some of the white in the inner corner of the eye to add brightness and makes eyes really pop. For stunning eyes, curl lashes and apply several coats of Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in Black.


Apply True Dimensions Lipstick in Natural Beauté and NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Au Naturel. Complete Alyssa’s red carpet look with Mary Kay Makeup Finishing Spray by Skindinavia, applying in a “T” and “X” formation to keep makeup looking fresh for up to 16 hours!
