PHILIP B Maui Wowie Beach Mist

_6828888

With naturally curly hair a good beach mist is a lazy hair days best friend. So pretty much everyday? First thing I noticed with the Maui Wowie Beach Mist was the great scent, the orchid scent is a beautiful addition to the standard beach fragrance.

I can use this on both wet or dry hair. When I apply the mist to my wet hair I don’t need anything else I just let it air dry and I have soft loose curls. If my hair is dry and in need of a little touch up a few more spritzes adds tons of volume and brings my curls back to life. A great product for the warmer months when you don’t want to  hassle with heat styling. And I love how it much volume it adds to dry hair, the perfect way to touch up your hair for a night out.

30 Days to Ageless Skin Challenge

PCA11

I was asked to  join the PCA SKIN 30 Days to Ageless Skin Beauty Challenge. I was supplied products specific to my skin concerns and asked to chronicle 30 days of use. I started my process two weeks ago, here is how my skin was looking prior to the challenge (yikes).

PCA skin care before

Well as you can see my skin was looking dull, I have a few blemishes and could use a little TLC. PCA Skin hooked me up with a rescue kit for my skin and here is what I have been using the last two weeks.

PCA Skin facial wash

A great face wash, I love gel formulas. This facial wash lathered well and left my skin feeling really clean without drying it out. I look forward to washing my face post-workout and how refreshed it feels after using the PCA facial wash.

Facial Wash
This gentle lactic acid formulation includes a novel cleansing blend that effectively removes environmental impurities and makeup while leaving the skin hydrated, soothed and pH balanced. Recommended for normal skin on the face and body.

PCA skin broad spectrum

With fair skin, I am always looking for a good SPF product. I love how light this PCA Skin Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45 is. The formula absorbs right away and doesn’t leave and sticky or greasy feeling on my skin.

Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45
This revolutionary formulation provides water-resistant broad spectrum protection with a light finish. The blend of UVA/UVB protecting sunscreen agents, including ultra-sheer zinc oxide, provides sun-shielding benefits. Tested to protect for 80 minutes in water, it is the perfect choice for an outdoor lifestyle. It also contains the important antioxidants silybin, also known as milk thistle, and caffeine.

This is one of my favorite products. Within the first week I could see a different in the tone of my skin, little blemishes and marks were fading. And my skin just had a healthier more vibrant glow.

Total Strength Serum
Total Strength Serum specifically addresses aging concerns by using the newest generation blend of peptides and amino acids that helps increase the production of collagen I, III and IV. Users will see a noticeable reduction in wrinkle volume while helping to regain elasticity, minimize pores and improve overall skin texture. The result is an overall lifting, smoothing effect.

Every morning and evening I apply just a pea sized amount. The skin along my jaw and neck are looking much firmer in just tow weeks. And if you nursed your kids you know the havoc that can create for your breasts. This cream will help firm the delicate tissue and leave your girls looking perkier and smoother. Score!

Perfecting Neck & Décolleté
The neck and décolleté are the most ignored areas of skin, yet they are two of the first to show signs of aging. Perfecting Neck & Décolleté is designed to specifically address the delicate tissue of this skin, offering unmatched rapid results in wrinkle repair, texture and UV-induced hyperpigmentation. Clinical results showed a demonstrable difference in skin complexion, laxity, texture and wrinkles within just five weeks.

When you are serious about changing your skin you bring out the big guns! The Intensive Age Refining Treatment is pretty strong stuff. I started with just two nights the first two weeks, next week I will try three nights. Just a pea sized drop of this serum will help hydrate and soothe your skin, while it goes to work to minimize fine lines. I can definitely see an improvement in the lines around my eyes. I can’t wait to see how it has helped at the end of the challenge.

Intensive Age Refining Treatment®: 0.5% pure retinol night
This nighttime treatment formulation combines 0.5% pure retinol paired with antioxidants and a host of beneficial ingredients to hydrate and soothe, while minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In the evening, apply a pea-sized amount after cleansing and toning. Begin by limiting use to twice a week, gradually increasing application frequency to every other night, and then advancing to each evening or as tolerated. Follow with the appropriate PCA SKIN moisturizer. Mild irritation may initially be experienced and is not a sign of a negative complication. This product is indicated for use in the evening only.

Beyonce channels Marilyn Monroe for OUT Magazine

1396959512_beyonce-article

Beyonce covers the latest issue of OUT Magazine, and on the cover, the singer channels Marilyn Monroe. Probably on purpose, considering she talked about sex quite a bit in the interview.

How her latest album is about empowering women with their sexuality:

I’d like to believe that my music opened up that conversation. There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you want to be—and still be a sexual being. It’s not mutually exclusive.

[It was] much freer than anything I’d done in the past. We really just tried to trust our instincts, embrace the moment, and keep it fun.” As an illustration she singled out the video for “Drunk in Love,” a fan favorite. “We were in Miami for Jay’s concert, and it was just the two of us, on the beach, amazing weather, and one outfit! It’s beautiful in its simplicity. If you want something to feel real and urgent, you can’t overthink it.
