Last weekend I spent a bit too much time in the sun and my skin was not feeling too great. It was dry, dull and a little burnt. Luckily I found this Coast to Coast Red Clay mask just waiting for my review!

The mask is a really nice thick texture that is easy to apply without being messy. The second the mask was on my face my skin started to feel better. The red clay felt so good on my sun burnt skin. I left the mask on for 10 minutes then washed it off with a warm wet cloth. My skin felt so soft and smooth after my treatment and it looked a million times better. This is a great mask for summer and I can’t wait to use it again.

Review: Nerium Firm Body Contouring Cream

51htPlN6lgL._SL1500_

Summer is here and that means shorts, dresses, swimsuits and lots of skin peeking out. After 3 kids and sliding down the backside  of my 30′s I have noticed my skin is just not where I want to be. Jocelyn and I both loved Nerium AD and I was excited to try out their newest launch Nerium Firm.

As I wanted to see the quickest results I  decided to use the cream  in the morning and at ngiht.  I focused on my legs from knee to hip which is one of my biggest trouble areas. It doesn’t take too much cream as a little goes a long way and it absorbs quickly leaving my skin feeling soft and smooth.

I just finished my third week of treatment and I can really see the results. After just a few weeks my skin is definitely firmer but the best part is there are less bumps and dimples and my skin is much smoother overall. Now ladies don’t expect to use this cream and get the skin of an 18 year old overnight. But if you want smoother, firmer skin this really is a great product. I am very happy with the difference so far and excited to see continued improvement.

 

NeriumFirm $98
A scientific breakthrough holds the answers to looking toned and smooth all year long. Following the historical success of the NeriumAD age-defying skincare line, Nerium International presents NeriumFirm Body Contouring Cream!

NeriumFirm is a skin-tightening cream developed from the patented NAE-8 extract of the Nerium oleander plant. Its powerful antioxidant formulation has been clinically proven to reduce the appearance of cellulite and dimpling and to help smooth, tighten and firm the appearance of loose skin. NeriumFirm also helps restore the appearance of youthful contour, tone and texture.

NeriumFirm is the only contouring product on the market harnessing the power of the NAE-8 extract, the key ingredient in the renowned NeriumAD skincare line. In addition to the proven results of NAE-8, NeriumFirm contains five other key ingredients:

Peptide matrix
Caffeine
White willow bark extract
Green tea leaf extract
Forskohlii root extract

Apply 1 – 2 teaspoons of NeriumFirm with gentle circular massaging motions to the targeted area (from the knee to the hip, the buttocks, the arms and/or abdomen), ideally while skin is warm and damp, then allow to dry 5 – 8 minutes prior to bedtime or dressing. Best used after showering and exfoliating on clean damp skin. You may experience a tingling or warming sensation and a little erythema (redness of the skin), which will dissipate quickly.

DO NOT mix with other products and make sure the targeted area is clean, damp, and free of lotions or products. For Better Results: As noted above, your main application of NeriumFirm should be in the evening before bed, just after a warm shower and preparing your skin surface with light exfoliation (the product works best overnight while you sleep). Want to supercharge your results? Add a second application of NeriumFirm in the morning!

You can learn more about Nerium Firm and purchase online at www.nerium.com.

total beauty all about hair collection

Nelson j Argan Oil 7 Styling Conditioner – Full Sized Value $15 –A  styling conditioner, genius! My hair is very fine and curly which makes it pretty easy to damage even with one hot iron treatment. So far I really like this styling conditioner, its lightweight and leaves my hair soft,smooth and easy to comb.  I love that is not only conditions my hair but also is a heat protector, detangler, adds shine, protects color, smooths and gives my hair sunscreen protection.

Bosley Professional Strength Healthy Hair Rebalancing & Finishing Treatment – Full Sized Value $25 A summer must have this ultra light serum. Just work a bit over your scalp to prevent dry, itchy or overly oily skin. Then I can use a pump or two to protect my hair prior to styling and I like to warm one pump between my hands and run over my heat styled hair. 

Evolvh Ultrashine Shampoo and Conditioner – Values $7 and $8 respectively –  A great combo, this duo not only smells great but leaves my hair so soft and smooth. The deluxe sample size is perfect for my travel bag for weekend excursions. 

100% Pure Honey and Virgin Coconut Restorative Shampoo – single use sample packet – This is a very tiny sample, not quite enough to work through all my hair. But I love the scent and it did leave my hair feeling clean and fresh.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment with African Macadamia Oil – $1.50 Value – Dove has hit it out of the park with this new African Macadamia Hair Oil. The fragrance is out of this world, it smells like I should be rocking on a hammock under a palm tree. It’s one of the most light weight hair oils I have tried but still left my hair very soft and shiny and made the ends of my hair look great.
