Mio Double Buff Dual Enzyme Exfoliator

mio double buff mhu

The first thing I noticed about the Mio Double Buff was how gentle the exfoliating beads are. Unlike the normal course, and grainy exfoliators Double Buff is creamy with very small buffing beads. Double Buff uses rounded spheres of Pumice, Lava and Bamboo blended with Papaya and Pineapple enzymes. Which means its uber gentle on my skin and smells amazing.

My skin has been  a bit dry and since adding this to my routine twice a week my skin has really improved. My legs, arms and even feet are so soft and smooth. And this time of year I like to use a little self tanner to not scare people with the glow from my white legs. I use Mio Double Buff prior to applying my self tanner and I have found it has really helped my get a smooth even sunless tan.

Mio Double Buff Dual Enzyme Exfoliator
smooth, firm, superbly soft skin in seconds. Instantly transform rough, dull skin into skin that’s superbly soft, smooth, radiant and dewy. Exfoliation is key to fit skin and our scrub will help you feel great in the buff!

• softens and hydrates for skin that feels brand new
• perfects and brightens uneven skin tone
• fine formula that prevents ‘cheap scrub skin damage’

How to use
Use at least twice weekly. Massage into DRY skin before showering off. Double Buff is super easy to use. Feel free to use on your wet face too – you don’t want your face feeling jealous of your lovely legs! Double Buff is the perfect skin prep for any of our Mio Firming Faves or Moisturising Miracles.

Hot Tip
Double Buff is a brilliant prep for your skin before applying self-tanner. This means the tanning lotion will go on without streaking or leaving you with orange knees and Shrek toes. It is also an excellent prep for your skin before getting in a bikini – skin always looks better and healthier when it is smooth and exfoliated.

How it works
This is double action body buffing in 30 seconds flat. Your skin will feel and look different the very first time you use Double Buff, superbly soft, smooth and dewy. Exfoliation is key to fit skin. It increases cell regeneration (younger skin cells = younger looking skin), improves strength and elasticity and makes your skin very, very, very touchable. We developed Double Buff to avoid the ‘big bits, little bits’ problem with many salt/oil scrubs. These can make you feel well exfoliated but, in reality, the big shards of salt or sugar rake your skin. If you saw this under a microscope, you would never use chunky scrubs again! Our Double Buff uses perfectly rounded spheres of Pumice, Lava and Bamboo blended with Papaya and Pineapple enzymes to dissolve away any roughness.

How I “Plus Up” My Beauty Routine with Pond’s + Giveaway

Disclosure: This review and contest was sponsored by Lunchbox. Opinions expressed here are my own.

 

ponds towelettes

Most women know you shouldn’t go to sleep without taking off your makeup, but some makeup removers just don’t moisturize and exfoliate the way you want. Pond’s Towelettes simplify your beauty regime and gently remove all makeup, plus they leave skin feeling moisturized.

As a working mom of three one thing I have very little of is time. I love how easy POND’S Towelettes make it to get my skin clean and feeling refreshed. I’m always looking for ways to Plus +Up my beauty routine and one item that helps me keep my skin in check is POND’S Wet Cleansing Towelettes. I keep a pack in my gym bag for post workout cleansing and they are perfect for my overnight bag and camping trips.  Along with on-the-go cleaning I love how great the towelettes wipe away every trace of waterproof mascara, and with no irritation to my eyes or skin. No need to rinse and my skin feels refreshed and moisturized.

Introducing Love 2 Love Fragrances

Introducing the love2love fragrance collection, with 4 different scents  perfect for Spring and Summer. Each scent is feminine, fresh and perfect for date night. And the best part, the line was created to  be affordable for everyone with everything priced under $10. But don’t let the low price fool you these are really great fragrances. The Love2Love Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa scent was featured in both  Redbook and the Oprah Magazine as a must have scent for Spring.

I have been enjoying this line the last two weeks switching between scents. The fragrances are long wearing and really great scents I am still a little shocked how affordable they are.  My two favorites are the Jasmine + Sparkling Mimosa and the Orange Blossom + White Musk. I love how bright and fresh it scent is without being overpowering. The bottles are pretty enough to display and with the great price point you can afford to grab more than one scent.

Be sure to check them out, any of these would make a great gift for Mom for Mothers Day. And you can even grab a  free sample on their website.
