Keeping hydrated in the summer is important and it is also important to keep your skin hydrated to leave you looking fabulous on the beach. Who doesn't want naturally luminous beautiful skin? The Certifed Fabulous team recently tried some amazing hydrating products to do just that for you. Here is what we found to be a wonderful hydrating routine for hydrated summer skin.



First you need to start with a hydrating body wash like Bodycology Pure White Gardenia Body Wash. Not only does this have the perfect summer scent and made with grape seed extract and vitamin E to provide your skin with ultra-hydration and nourishment. This moisturizing body wash can be used as an extremely sudsy soap in the shower, or can also be used as a bubble bath in the tub for the ultimate relaxation. The scent of the Bodycology Pure White Gardenia is so refreshingly floral and makes skin smell sweet for hours. The Bodycology Body wash is a great deal at just 3.99 and is available at Walmart.

Summer means carefree days spent at the beach relaxing and soaking up the sun. Silky soft skin is a must if you are going to be wearing a bikini day after day, and shaving daily, razor bumps, and stubble do not pair well with your beach attire. There are many ways to remove unwanted body and facial hair without having to break out your shaver every time you hop in the shower and without spending a fortune on treatments at the spa. Us ladies at Certified Fabulous have removed our pesky mustaches, unwanted uni-brows, arm hair and leg hair and have found a few DIY hair removal products that get the job done successfully within the comfort of your own home.

 Silk'n Flash&Go

The Silk'n Flash&Go is an at home light-based hair removal devise that will get help eliminate hair all over your body including your face. Be sure to read all the warnings and instructions before starting use. The Flash&Go has a skin color sensor that is designed to measure the skin tone of the applied surface and enable application only on suitable skin tones. This feature will disable treatment if your skin is too dark or too tan. It uses Home Pulse Light Technology TM that is clinically proven for permanent hair reduction. This product takes time to have visible results but the results last. What we liked most about this product is it didn't take long to do the treatment and it is easy to use. Before using the Flash&Go you want to shave all the areas that you plan to treat. As with a lot of hair removal system this is something that you will want to test before doing a full treatment. Then you just set the device to the desired treatment level and go. The nice thing about this is that it plugs into the wall, no worries about the battery dying on you. If you plan on doing both legs it can take about 30 minutes, it is a fabulous thing to do while watching your favorite tv show. It typically takes around 4 treatments to see noticeable reduction in hair. They recommend using it every two weeks for the first three to four treatments. After that it should be done if hairs have grown back and until the desired results are achieved. The Silk'n Flash&Go can be found at for $199.



 Olay Smooth Finish Facial Hair Duo

The Smooth Finish Facial Hair Removal Duo is a kit that can be used on both fine and coarse hair types. The kit includes a Skin Guarding Balm that you apply first, and then the Hair Removal Cream that you apply second. When using the balm, cover the entire area where you will be removing hair from and gently massage in for ten seconds. After apply a generous amount of the hair removal cream, enough to cover all of the hair but do not rub in. Allow the cream to sit for 8-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of hair. Then gently wipe away and follow by rinsing the area. This is completely pain free and extremely effective. You can find these for 23.99 at

Sweet summertime is finally here and like most people, the Certified Fabulous team is ready to get outside and enjoy the every bit of the beautiful weather that we can. Protecting your skin from the sun is very important as it may prevent dark spots, premature aging, and more importantly skin cancer. Because of this, we have been very busy putting many SPF products to the test to find out which ones meet all of our standards and would make a great go-to option for our readers. After much research, testing, and a lot of sunbathing, we have narrowed it down to a few different products that we all agree are our favorites. 

  • Olay Total Effects Feather Weight Moisturizer $17.99 

    & Olay Regenerist Luminous Brightening & Protecting Lotion with SPF 15 $25.99

    Olay Total Effects entire line is wonderful, but the Feather Weight Moisturizer SPF 15 is an essential for everyday skin care. This moisturizer makes a great lightweight primer for your face and can be applied alone or worn under makeup. It applies smoothly and feels hydrating immediately but also absorbs quickly leaving your skin moisturized and healthy without leaving a greasy residue. The Feather Weight Moisturizer provides seven benefits to your face, including plumping wrinkles and fine lines, brightening as well as evening skin tone, diminishing the appearance of pores, lightening dark spots, enhancing skins elasticity, and restoring moisture. If used as part of your daily routine, not only are you protecting your skin from aging and further sun damage, you are also helping to heal prior damage that may have already happened. If you already have some dark spots the Olay Regenerist Luminous brightening & protecting lotion with sunscreen is a wonderful moisturizer to use with the added protection of SPF 15 which provides UVA and UVB protection to help prevent early aging. This moisturizer is designed to visibly fade the look of dark spots for a more even skin tone.
  • Bioelements Sun Diffusing Protector SPF 15 $41.00

    & Bioelements SPF 50 FaceScreen $53.50

    bioelementsspfimageAnother product that stood out to many of us is the Bioelements Sun Diffusing Protector and FaceScreen SPF 50. These sunscreens are both designed to protect from both UVA and UVB rays to give skin full protection from harmful rays. With the higher SPF in the FaceScreen, it is an ideal option if you are spending time outside and want to keep your face protected and healthy. "After applying this moisturizer and then sitting in the sun all day, my skin was left looking glowing and tanned, without any redness or tenderness" – Certified Fabulous Team member Heather. Keep in mind that it is always good to reapply SPF throughout the day.
  • HydroPeptide Solar Defense SPF 30 $44.00

    HydroPeptide Solar Defense SPF 30 is a skin tone adjusting, moisturizing, facial sunscreen. Made with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, HydroPeptide is a physical barrier sunscreen, meaning that the formula actually creates a physical barrier between sun rays and your skin to protect from burning as well as keeping the heat out of the skin. This is another great option if you have any sort of skin sensitivity or inflammation. Ingredients such as acai, green tea, and aloe make-up this nutrient rich sun block helping to seal moisture into your face leaving a matte finish without any oily residue. The combination of ingredients give the lotion a nice scent and doesn't smell like the typical chemical filled sunblock, it is actually pleasant smelling. One of our favorite benefits of the HydroPeptide is that when applied to your face, it "self-adjusts" to the color of your skin tone. This Solor Defense will also reduce the look of blotchy redness and can take the place of wearing a foundation. The blend of ingredients helps to fight off acne and minimize the premature signs of aging all while protecting your skin from the harmful sun rays.

    OLAY Fresh Effects {S’wipe Out!} Refreshing Make-Up Removal Cloths

    Gentle everyday cleansing that’s on-the-go. Fresh and swift, these pre-moistened wipes are covered in cottony-soft cleansing pockets that lift away dirt and makeup—even Waterproof mascara!—in a flash.

    * Makeup removing cloths are a necessity in my opinion and these definitely bring some cleaning power to my face when I need to get clean at the end of the day! Olay has been a brand used by generations of women in my family and I, without a doubt, continue to use the brand because it has always (and still does) perfect the skin and protects it from aging. If you saw my grandmothers skin you would never guess her age...her secret is solely Olay! 

  • Clarisonic - Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing certified fabulous review
    Clarisonic: Mia

    What is it: It's your 60-second trip to the spa, every day. The Clarisonic Mia uses sonic technology that works with the natural elasticity of the skin. Oscillating back and forth at a sonic frequency that produces 300 movements per second, a flexing action is created between the outer and inner brushes that works deeply and gently to loosen dirt and oil, cleansing so effectively that skin-care products absorb better. Clinical results include six times more makeup removed than manual cleansing. It also works to reduce the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, and addresses oily areas, dry skin patches, and skin tone.

    Who is it for: Because not all skin is the same, neither are Clarisonic brush heads. The included deep pore cleansing brush head and sensitive brush head provide an easy introduction to sonic cleansing. But Clarisonic also makes a variety of interchangeable brush heads for specific facial skin types and conditions.

    Why is it different: Cleansing the skin more thoroughly removes impurities trapped in pores. Once those obstructions are removed, skin-care products can absorb better, making skin much more receptive to treatments, lotions, and serums.

    How do I use it: Traditional methods of cleansing don't get your skin as clean as you'd think. Using sonic technology, the Clarisonic Skin Cleansing System works with skin's natural elasticity to gently remove the impurities traditional methods leave behind--leaving skin softer, smoother, and more beautiful.

    * You've seen it around, it's been out for a while now. Why haven't you bought one?! I attribute the improved (now nearly perfect) quality of my skin to this amazing invention! My skin completely cleared up and it smoothed out the texture so much! I tell everyone I know they need to own one, the benefits greatly outweigh the price...I would pay WAY more for it considering it made me feel better about myself and my skin forever!

    * I LOVE this toner, especially since it comes already to used with pre-moistened pads that you can take out of the jar and apply easily and anywhere. Each pad, from the first to the last, had the perfect amount of toner saturation and I only needed to use one for my whole face and neck. These are my favorite morning products to use. I wake up and swipe my face with a pad before I apply my lotions and I am good!!!  An absolute must have that never dried out skin, but keeps it balanced and properly hydrated without a slimy feeling.

Waking up tired is never fun.  Unfortunately, I wake up tired (especially when I have to wake to the beeping of the alarm) more than I would like. I think that waking up tired is a common phenomenon, and I am probably not alone.  Just because I sometimes wake up tired, does not mean that my complexion has to reflect my tiredness.   Thank goodness for Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer and the wonderful Olay Bright on Schedule Eye Awakening Cream.

Olay total effects moistur gel hydratantGel moisturizers are great for a number of reasons. The light feel of a gel cream is perfect for all skin types.  Light enough for oily skin, gel creams absorb quickly.  Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer is Oil-free, which is also perfect for those with oily skin.  For those of us with seasonal dry skin (during those dry winter months), this gel cream is perfect because it is so lightweight it is easy to layer a great moisturizing serum under, or add my favorite moisturizing booster to the gel cream itself. 

Olay Fresh Effects Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer smells AMAZINGOlay total effects eye bright Serum, which is always nice first thing in the morning, although nothing smells better than coffee on my tired mornings. Dew Over Hydrating Gel Moisturizer contains wonderful ingredients such as essence of honeysuckle and essence of white tea, natural antioxidants and skin soothers.  My skin looked brighter and felt softer.  Im loving this gel cream.

Olay Fresh Effects Bright on Schedule Eye Awakening Cream is the
perfect eye cram to use with my gel cream.  I love the awesome roller ball tube, the small metal roller balls not only make this eye cream easy to apply, but also provide a wonderful cooling effect to my scratchy, tired, dry eyes.   Also made with the essences of honeysuckle and white tea, this amazing eye cream immediately revived my tired eyes, and making them brighter while helping to diminish the appearance of dark circles. Chock full of vitamins (B3, E, B5), this super nourishing cream is worth a try.

Burt’s Bees - Honey & Shea Sugar Scrub

I love Burt’s Bees their products are 100% natural and feel great.

Burts bees honey and shea sugar scrubThis fabulous sugar scrub is a wonderful blend of oil, honey and sugar. I applied a small amount of scrub into my palms and gently rubbed it to the rough areas on my skin. Taking special attention to my heels and feet, which seem to get very dry.

The scrub felt wonderful removing all of the dead skin it was like polishing my skin. The scent of the honey and feel of the shea butter was fabulous.

When it comes to skincare, we've all heard of Olay. In my opinion, they have a pretty good reputation: quality products without breaking the bank. Most commercials I see for Olay have something to do with anti-aging (correct those dark circles, smooth out those wrinkles, etc.). But I'm not quite at the age when I need to use those products, so I never really looked into Olay as I thought it wouldn't suit my skin's needs at this time. Well if you've been thinking like me, I hope this article changes your mind or at least gets you thinking about giving Olay a try, because I have now tried a few Olay products and love them! I've seen a change in my skin consistently while using these products. 

Olay Regenerist Luminous: Tone Perfecting Cream

Olay Tone Perfecting Moisturizer 2Target Concern: fades the look of discoloration/dark spots (reduces appearance over time)

Benefits: Brightens, exfoliates, smoothes. Regenerates skin's appearance for healthy-looking, youthful luminosity.

I do not have dark spots, nor am I looking for more youthful skin necessarily, but I do need something to even out my skintone and to help brighten up my skin's appearance. And this cream is a great fit for my skin! Immediately after the first use I noticed my skin looked brighter, felt smooth & hydrated. When I continued to use the cream, my skin's complexion continued to get better; brightening up every day and  felt so smooth even when I washed my face at the end of the day. Another aspect that I really found to be great about this cream is the exfoliating benefits. At first I didn't really know what to expect from an exfoliating cream, but after I applied the cream, and let it dry, I then went to apply either an eye cream or my primer - in some places I noticed a clumping of product that gathered when I rubbed my skin - almost like a gommage - and that's when I really noticed the exfoliating benefits. This did not bother me as I simply took a dry towel and lightly wiped the areas where there was the gathered product/dead skin. This happened less and less after I continued to use the cream, so I really think it was renewing and exfoliating my skin until it was beautifully smooth! As a side note, this cream is quite scented when you use it, but when it dries it is not noticeable. Also this cream absorbed really well, and even though it is thick and creamy, it was in no way greasy!

Hello everyone,

Now that this week is Anti-Aging and Collagen topic I choose to tell you about my experience with the Regenerist Anti-Aging Eye Roller by Olay and how it promises to immediately reduce under-eye puffiness! And I have to admit, yes, they are right!

I am a new mom and my daughter does not yet sleep through the night. Right now she is teething so last night she kept me up from midnight to 5am. When my alarm went off this morning, yes she of course slept in after being up all night, I just wanted to hide and not go out of my house because I didn’t want people to think I was wearing my Halloween mask already. 

Unfortunately I have pretty sensitive skin. I tried a lot of different products but usually just ended up covering my dark circles with lots of concealer and powder. Then I tried the Olay anti-aging eye roller and I love it. I apply it every single morning after I get up. The first thing I noticed was that it has an amazing cooling effect. On top of that Olay was smart enough to not have a crème but create a roller! When I apply the cool concentrate in the morning, I honestly have to be careful to not fall back asleep. It is just sooo relaxing. It feels like a gentle massage that reduces the puffiness immediately. 

All in all I can say I will definitely keep using this product for many more sleepless nights. :)
