Introducing Mama Mio High Protein Face Care

I was given the opportunity to try the new Mama Mio High Protein Face Care and I chose Nexercise. A special formula to tighten the skin on your neck and jaw line. They have two simple  tightening exercises then the Nexercise  serum you apply daily. The product itself has a great light fresh scent and absorbed into my skin very easily. After a few weeks my neck is a looking firmer but the best results have been on my jaw line. It has really firmed and smoothed the skin along my jaw line making my whole face look leaner. I am really impressed with the results, can’t wait to try more of the line.
Mama Mio is thrilled to introduce the latest breakthrough in skin care: Mama Mio High Protein Face Care – protein-packed products combined with toning exercises for a youthful, fit face.

The 5 lightweight products are packed with heavyweight ingredients that work on the protein at every level of your skin: the keratin on the surface, the collagen and elastin protein one layer down, and finally on the protein-packed muscles immediately below the skin. Each product is packaged with Mama Mio’s “Little Book of Confidence” which includes corresponding 60-second exercises. Because the muscles in your face are actually attached to your skin, performing these simple exercises daily can make a big difference very quickly.

The collection includes the following:

Mighty Moisture Morning and Evening Moisturiser ($48): This lightweight moisture concentrate is your twice daily dose of everything skin needs to be strong, firm, fit, resilient and elastic without weighing it down.

Love Your Life Lines Deep Line Reducer ($48): The ultimate enemy of marionette lines, upper lip pucker, crow’s feet and frowny forehead furrows, this concentrated light-reflecting cream gets right in the groove with 10 actives designed to plump up and fill out deep facial lines.

Eye Know Moisturising Eye Serum ($39): This jam-packed serum tackles dehydration, dark circles, puffiness, crow’s feet, wrinkles, and saggy baggy-ness, leaving you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Nexercise Neck and Jawline Concentrate ($45): Keep the dreaded jiggly jowls and wobbly wattle at bay with Nexercise, a tightening, firming essential for softening jaw lines and recapturing strong, firm, taut, toned, fit skin.

Clean Slate Aloe Rich Cleanser ($32): Make the most of your cleansing routine by infusing skin with essential oils, firming proteins, pre- and pro-biotics and omegas while gently yet effectively removing impurities.

Are Marc Jacob’s new Lola ads featuring Dakota Fanning too provocative?

17-year-old Dakota Fanning is the new face of Marc Jacob’s fragrance Lola. (Lola is my absolute FAVORITE fragrance!)

She is completely clothed, but the ad is making many people upset. Could it have something to do with the flower resting on her lady bits?

At just 17, Dakota Fanning is still a year under the legal age of consent in her home state of California, but this trifling fact doesn’t seem to concern Marc Jacobs. The 48-year-old designer chose to place the teenager in a provocative pose – in homage to a 1950s novel about sex with an under age girl – to sell his new perfume, Oh, Lola!

Jacobs’ long-term collaborator Juergen Teller shot the Twilight star in Los Angeles wearing a girlish, pink scalloped polka dot dress. The background, is similarly juvenile – it’s monotone pastel pink compounding the innocence of the composition. But then a large bottle of the scent, featuring it’s signature rose-top has been placed provocatively in between the young starlet’s legs. The teenager clutches it as she tilts back lasciviously and stares intently into the camera.

New Yorker Jacobs admits that his intention was to portray the young woman as a re-boot of the tragic character in Vladimir Nabokov’s 1955 novel, Lolita, which tells the story of young girl’s sexual relationship with a much older man, who becomes her step-father.

He told Women’s Wear Daily: ‘When we were speaking about who to use in the ads, I had recently seen The Runaways…I knew she could be this contemporary Lolita, seductive yet sweet.’

The iconic novel tells the story of sexual predator Humbert Humbert and his exploitation of his ‘Lolita’ from the age of 12.

Ironically, this is the age at which Dakota first posed for the successful designer.

The pull of Jacobs is so strong that Fanning admitted she was: ‘humbled by the offer and said yes immediately.’ Dakota recently graduated from high school and joined her peers to receive her diploma. She attended classes at the $30,000 a year private school in North Hollywood and last year was crowned Homecoming Queen. But despite her Hollywood career Dakota insists that she is a down-to-earth normal teenager.

She said: ‘I have such a normal life when I’m not working… It’s just nice to be around people you care about and who know you best.’

What do you think? Are they inappropriate?
