We could all benefit from a product that promises to make our skin smoother, softer and more even toned.  I had the great fortune to test 3 products that not only delivered this, but also are amazing at helping to correct and approve the appearance of acne prone skin. I only wish I would have had these amazing products when I was 15 and had raging acne. This month I tested Proactiv + Skin Smoothing Exfoliator, Proactiv + Complexion Perfecting Hydrator and  Proactiv +  Pore Targeting Treatment.  All 3 of these products were amazing on their own, but as a trio, were so fantastic. I tentatively offered a girlfriend from the gym these 3 to use, as her forehead was a pimply mess (touchy subject I know, but what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t offer), she had amazing results as well. 

Everyone has seen the infomercials for Proactiv. We have seen the celebrity testimonies, and the before and afters.  The Proactive+ line is an advanced acne-treatment system with added medicine, built-in hydration and a new, smarter way to treat acne. The founders of the original Proactiv product line Dr. Rodan and Dr. Fields have spent the last five years creating all-new Proactiv+, completely reformulating Proactiv® from the ground up to take advantage of the latest advances in smart delivery technology and science-based skincare. They promise that with “Proactiv+, you also can enjoy the look of smoother, more even-toned skin. Nice texture. Smaller-looking pores and a complexion that glows. Visibly diminished dark marks. Reduced redness, oil and shine. Skin that's visibly softer, more supple and hydrated.” I had to see for myself, and was very satisfied with the results. 

Step One of the new, advanced Proactiv+ System is the Skin Smoothing Exfoliator. This lush, cushiony wash gently deep cleans pore-clogging impurities and sets the stage for a smoother, more healthy-looking complexion. Glycolic acid works together with tiny exfoliating beads to gently yet effectively lift away dead skin cells, makeup, oils and other pore-clogging substances for an immediately brighter, smoother look and feel. A mild concentration of prescription-quality micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide medicine begins to quickly kill acne-causing bacteria on contact. The Skin Smoothing Exfoliator delivers a hydrating moisturizing complex that makes your skin feel soft and supple unlike other cleansers that can leave skin feeling dry and tight. This naturally derived, sulfate-free cleanser was designed to gently remove impurities without stripping needed oils. I loved the way this cleanser applied, and it truly left my skin so clean, refreshed without drying.

Step Two of the Proactiv+ System is the Pore Targeting Treatment. With this product, Smart Target™ technology solves the two biggest problems of acne fighting with one elegant solution. Inside the pore, the medicine's micro-layers of encapsulation open successively -gradually releasing the benzoyl peroxide for longer-lasting effectiveness. Added glycerin helps keep skin looking soft, supple and hydrated. contains encapsulated benzoyl peroxide with exclusive, Smart Target™ technology that helps transport the acne medicine off the skin's surface -- to minimize dryness and irritation -- and delivers it with laser-like precision directly into pores, the target site for killing acne-causing bacteria. This formula is lightweight, non-greasy and absorbs quickly into skin. It doesn’t leave a film or greasy residue which is great. This product is paraben free, non-comedogenic and dermatologist tested. I love that this product can be used for all skin-types. I have somewhat dry skin, and a girlfriend of mine, going though some complexion issues, has oily skin. I gave her this product to try, and she had the same results as I did. Neither one of us experienced drying. We both however, noticed a difference in skin tone, texture and clarity.

I am a sun worshiper. I work inside all week long, so on the weekend, if I have the chance to hit the beach and bask in the sun, I'm there.  This past weekend, however, was a bit overkill.  The sky was clear, and after an extremely fun Saturday night out, a friend and I decided to hit the beach to nap off our groggies.  From 12pm to 4pm we napped in the sun.  At 4pm we realized our error in not wearing any SPF. I am already a tanned, brown bunny, but still left the beach a boiled lobster.

Monday morning was extremely difficult. Going to work was not something I was looking forward to, in my reddened state.  Of course all of the girls in the office gasped at the sight of my swollen, red skin. I was working in Grayce’s office when I noticed JOEY New York Quick Results Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist. Chill Mist?? Sounded exactly like what I needed for my hot, red skin. I grabbed the pretty pink and white box, and couldn't wait to spray this coconut infused spray onto my ridiculous sunburn. I was extremely pleased by the result of this luxurious product.

joey new york bye bye chill spray review summer tan burn sunJoey New York is known as the innovators of world class therapeutic skin care treatments and beauty enhancements products that render instant results. They have stabilized and integrated through new technology the water from tender young green coconuts into their new fast-acting QUICK RESULTS skincare collection.  Coconuts are the fruit of the coconut palm tree, botanically known as cocos nucifera meaning “nut-bearing.” This tree is recognized as “the tree which gives all that is necessary for living” virtually because all parts of the tree has some human uses. The coconut palm tree is native to Malaysia, Polynesia, Southern Asia, South America, India, and the tropics. Coconut water is packed with potent Antioxidants and Essential Minerals. Exactly what my sun abused skin was craving.

JOEY New York Quick Results Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist promises to “deliver vitamins and minerals to the face, body and hair for hydration, soft supple skin and radiance.” Hydration is so important when dealing with sun damaged skin, and I was very happy to see for myself that this product did in fact cool off my skin, leaving it supple and hydrated. I love the continuous mist technology as my hurting skin wouldn't have been able to tolerate rubbing any sort of lotion into it.  It is suggested on the packaging to refrigerate this spray for added cooling effects, which I did. This spray immediately cooled my skin off, giving me instant relief. It is truly the ultimate refreshing and relaxing skin treatment, and although not specifically indicated to treat a sunburn, this product truly eased my misery in a big way. Thanks, thanks thanks JOEY New York Quick Results Bye Bye Dry Chill Mist!!!

High in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) grows a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients. With over 190 bioactive compounds, sea buckthorn is an unsurpassed source of Omegas 3, 6, and 9. And it's a rich source of the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7, an essential fatty acid vital to collagen production and healthy skin, hair and nails.

Sea buckthorn is known as nature's most balanced fruit. This "Holy Fruit of the Himalayas" has been cherished by native Tibetans for centuries for its incredible nutritive qualities. Over 120 specific studies on sea buckthorn have shown that this little berry promotes health. From sea buckthorn's rare abundance of some of the most powerful antioxidants to being the only plant in the world known to contain essential fatty acids 3, 6, 7 and 9 - sea buckthorn has earned its title of superfruit. 

05152013 Seabuck Wonders Bottle Box Serum v2 Certified Fabulous

I didn't start researching this amazing ingredient until I was given the Sea Buckthorn Deep Hydrating Serum from Seabuck Wonders. Before I review products I like to do some research on them and the ingredients in them so I can know exactly what I am trying and how it is suppose to work for me. It was amazing to read so much positive and beneficial things about this "holy fruit". I was SO excited to try the serum on my face to repair my skin and improve my skin tone, plus surging it with all of the amazing omegas abd vitamins it contains! 

Sea Buckthorn Deep Hydrating Serum nourishes and supports cell regeneration to minimize fine lines and help maintain a youthful, healthy glow. The packaging is great because with an airless bottle it will dispenses a perfect amount of the serum and it only takes one hand to pump, no try to shake or squeeze product out! The scent was an amazing orange oil that smelled like I just peeled an orange :) The serum was a great consistency and was easy to smooth over my face. It does foam up a bit, but as you keep rubbing it into your skin it will absorb in clear.

SEABUCK WONDERS- Pure Himalayan Sea Buckthorn Oil Blend Omega 7 Complete

I am a health nut.  I live off of protein, fruits and vegetables.  I gave up grain and dairy.  I work out at least 4 times a week (Crossfit) and run 3-4 days a week.  The only area I’m lacking is my use of vitamins and supplements.  So when I was given SeaBuck Wonders Sea Buckthorn Oil Blend Omega-7 Complete supplements I was excited to try.  Despite its name, sea buckthorn has nothing to do with the ocean. Instead it’s a nutrient-packed shrub that grows throughout the world. Sea buckthorn offers a unique mixture of active compounds, including a variety of carotenoids (such as lycopene and zeaxanthin); tocopherols; sterols; vitamins C, B1, B2, B5, B6, and folate; and flavonoids (such as quercetin and kaempferol). It’s also one of the very few botanicals that provides a wealth of essential fatty acids, including omega-3s, -6s, -7s, and -9s.  I was anxious to see if I would experience any difference in my overall health.

Legend has it that in ancient Greece, when sick horses were let loose to roam and die naturally, the Grecians were surprised to find the horses were stronger and more energetic. This was traced to a plant the horses were grazing on called Hippophae Rhamnoides L, meaning trees that make horse shine. In ancient times, when battle-worn horses were released where sea buckthorn grew, the horses would emerge with shiny coats after feeding on the berries. This plant or shrub is now simply referred to as Sea Buckthorn. Sea Buckthorn has a rich history of use in treating numerous medical conditions. It has been called a wonder plant in many Asian countries, including China, India, and Pakistan. The berries have been used for more than 1,000 years in Tibetan and Indian systems of medicine.  The oil from these sour orange berries has been used in Russia to treat radiation burns, sunburn, and eczema. In China and India the oil has been used traditionally to relieve coughs and help digestion.

seabuckwonders sea buckthorn supplements review products beauty health omega 7 complete

After taking two of these vegetarian soft gels daily (the recommended dose) for one month, I see a noticeable difference in my hair. It's no wonder considering the incredibly high amounts of Omega fatty acids (3, 6, 7, and 9) in these berries. Not only is this beneficial for your hair, but it's equally effective in making your skin and nails healthy and strong. I also noticed less stomach trouble while taking these supplements, which was wonderful.

I love bees. These amazing honey makers are hardworking creatures who live in cooperative communities where the Queen rules all.  Bees provide us with what is one of the most amazing natural ingredient; honey.  Honey is one of the world’s oldest moisturizers.  Cleopatra was known to bathe her skin with milk and honey. Honey has been used in holistic skin care practices for hundreds of years for the treatment of acne, eczema and psoriasis.  Honey is the key ingredient in the amazing Beelove products I have been enjoying this week. 
Beeline spa collection
 
Honey has amazing moisturizing as well antiseptic properties, making it a really great ingredient in skin care. Honeys humectant properties help attract water to the skin, moisturizing the skins to prevent against wrinkles and dryness. The more moisture our skin holds the younger its appearance.  Honeys antiseptic properties are just as amazing. Honey contains the enzyme glucose oxidase, which, when combined with water becomes hydrogen peroxide.  These antiseptic qualities help rid the skin of bacteria, helping to create a clear complexion.
 
Honey is the key ingredient in Sweet Beginnings Beelove skincare products.  My 3 favorites are the Body Wash, Lotion and Sugar Scrub.  All three have very clean ingredient lists, containing not only honey, but wonderful ingredients such as avocado oil, shea butter, grape-seed oil and silk protein.  The signature beeline essential oils lend a mellow,  baby powder-like fragrance.  The shower gel looks like honey, and works into a nice lather.  I liked this body wash because my skin didn't feel dry and tight after my shower (and I like long, hot showers).  The lotion applies easily, and absorbs nicely into the skin.  My absolute favorite product however, is the Sugar Scrub.  The scrub is different from others I have used.  The sugar particles are really big, not like the usual fine texture I am used to.  This made handling the product easier in that it doesn't just melt away in a hot shower. My skin felt refreshed, exfoliated and soft after using this wonderful sugar scrub.
 
Beelove is also amazing because of the good karma story behind its beginning.  Founder and CEO Brenda Palms Barber saw the problems that evolve from the high unemployment rates in the city of Chicago.  She recognized the difficulties faced by those being released from prison in their desire to find employment opportunities.  Lack of education and criminal background are huge barriers faced by this milieu. Barber’s solution was to start an aviary in a small vacant urban lot in the city of Chicago.  She has been able to create full time employment through the tending of bees and the harvest of raw honey.  By teaching ex-offenders the art of beekeeping, she has provided an opportunity for these people to learn a trade, helping to decrease the likelihood repeat incarceration (the recidivism rate of these worker is a mere 4%, compared to the nation average of 65%).   Barbers vision is proving to be a success, as the company is growing, with 4 aviarys in the city of Chicago, as well as hundreds of employment opportunities for those facing employment barriers. 
 
The story behind the Beelove products is almost as good as the quality of the products themselves.  
 
Gotta love it!!
Stacey

Hello Fabulously Beautiful Followers!  Hope you are having a great Friday. I know this week has gone by super fast for me, hopefully it has for you too.

I never thought I would ever be talking about wrinkle fillers.  In fact, I've avoided them like the plague.  But for some reason I just thought I'd never get wrinkles. Like I'd be the one woman in the world that the magic

02222013 No 7 Instant Illusion Wrinkle Filler Boots Certified Fabulouswrinkle fairy would wave her wand over and POOF! No wrinkles for Beckie.  But unfortunately my hours of sun bathing in my younger years have caught up with me. 


So before I went to the pros, I thought that I would try an at-home treatment first.  Of course I did my 
research and checked out all the reviews and came across, No. 7's Instant Illusion from Boots.  It's a hypo-allergenic wrinkle filler and within my price point.  So why not try it right?  One of the first things that I noticed was their packaging.  It's simple and straight to the point.  There wasn't a lot of instructions I had to read or other "fluff" on the inner tube or even on the unit carton.  The product comes in a 1oz tube that resembles a needle with a directional tip.  Very cute!  I like using products in tubes because I control how much product

 I use at a time and I don't feel like I'm wasting any of it.  Then when I think I'm almost done, I cut the end off and scoop out what's left- yeah I'm that girl!

Well one more week of my favorite month friends.  Keep up the lovin' because really it's the best gift you can give.

Healthy, glowing skin...that is what everyone strives for! It is something celebrities and even the average consumer pays a lot to achieve for special occasions. What if I told you all you needed was one product to get the look?

02202013 No 7 Instant Radiance Beauty Balm certifed fabulous boots

Boots No 7: Instant Radiance Beauty Balm gives tired skin and instant "pick-me-up" for irresistibly long-lasting radiance, leaving skin glowing and feeling deliciously soft! This lotion is light weight and leaves a moisturized, non-greasy feeling with is an ideal base for makeup application...or just to wear alone for that soft, perky, healthy skin look! 

The lotion is a pink-white pearlescent color that has the most beautiful and natural brightening power. My face was instantly glowing when I applied it! I even did an in-office test for everyone and put a dab on the back of my hand and blended it in, then held my two hand up side by side and showed them how dramatic of a difference it made! It looks even better when the sun hits it, the skin is stunningly luminous...truly beauty in a bottle. The scent is also INCREDIBLE! 

I usually use this every morning before I apply my makeup and it enhances my makeup beautifully. Usually all of my illuminating products are primers or products you put on-top of makeup...so this was a nice change to have a product give hydration with the glow :)

Have a pinky, girly Holiday

Hey everyone it is Claudia again. This week is all about getting all of us into the spirit of Christmas. If you are not yet, I am sure you will definitely have a Christmas wish after you are done reading my blog. Let me tell you about the “Shower Trip” by Soap & Glory.SoapGlory tote

The first thing there is to say is that the products come in a beautiful girly pink tote. It was that beautiful that it disappeared in my house. Why that? Well, I have a one year old daughter that has the habit of misplacing things that she likes. So I went to get the shower trip tote this morning and couldn’t find it anywhere. After I looked everywhere for half an hour I found it in my daughters room. She had cleaned it out and her favorite teddy was neatly placed inside of it. Needless to say that she wasn’t too happy when I told her I had to take it to work with me. The look on her face was just telling me “But mom, it’s so pretty!”. And yes, it definitely is.

But that’s not all. After my first being impressed about how cute the tote is, I opened it and was amazed again. A sweet, flowery, very fresh scent arose immediately. The tote holds 8 very cute, pink and girly products. Included are:

-          - Clean On Me™ Shower Gel (75ml)

Hello and Happy Friday again fellow Fabbers!  As you may know we have been discussing products that brighten your skin tone.  With the winter upon us many times our skin takes the brunt of it all.  I know in ready many of the beauty mags, ladies will write in and ask about products that will help to moisturize or ask "What can I do to help wake my skin up in the dead of winter?"

Well I am happy to share with you a new product that I've found.  It comes from a company called Mad Hippie.  I know, very fitting for me.  They use natural ingredients to achieve what products with chemicals do.  I absolutely love their Vitamin C serum.  I use it 2 x's a day under my daily moisturizer and have seen a major change in my skin tone.  My problem areas-forehead and just above my upper lip- from sun damage are almost gone and I've been using this serum for only 2 weeks.

So what's in this secret sauce that Mad Hippie has concocted that makes it work so amazing? Well, high levels of vitamin C, Konjac Root, Ferulic and Hyaluronic acid.  This compound of deliciousness helps fight off the free radicals that we encounter everyday.  I know the hyaluronic acid sounds scary, but it really isn't.  We actually have traces of hyaluronan in our body that aids in the repair of daily toxins like UVB sun rays.  It also helps in keeping the skin from dehydrating- like having a water fountain in your skin.  Is it possible that Mad Hippie has found the fountain of youth in a little bottle?  Possibly!

One of my favorite Great Aunts had a morning mantra and it went like this..

A brilliant genius for dark days

Now that the days are getting shorter and it gets colder all the time it also seems like our complexion gets pale more and more. Pur~bright promises to be a bright idea in beauty – to create luminous, even toned skin without harsh ingredients. The 9 powerful plant extracts in pur~bright are clinically proven to strengthen the skin against future damage, while safely decreasing melanin production for fewer age spots. Wow a lot of promises but so far this sounds like a pure genius! When I heard about this product I thought I had to put it to the test. I live in Maine where it gets pretty cold right now and on top of that I try to finally get in shape a little better and work out a lot. So I am really putting my skin to a test right now.

I use the pure-bright serum every single night after I cleanse my face. My first impression was that it felt very refreshing. I am usually not one to use a lot of different products but after just a couple times of usage I didn’t want to go without it anymore. I have very sensitive skin so my cleanser usually leaves behind a little tense feeling in my face. When I apply the pur~bright it seems very calming. The serum is rich on vitamin C and Avocado oil, both being very healthy to not only my type of sensitive and dry skin.

But that’s not everything yet. After I used the product for about 2 weeks people around me started to complement me by saying that my skin tone had brightened up a lot and my complexion had lightened. I felt honored because the last time I had heard something like that was when I was pregnant and everyone told me I looked glowing.

All in all I have to say that I will definitely add this one more step to my nightly routine. It is very much worth it because pur~bright by pur~lisse is purely a genius.

Brightening Skin Care is a Hot Topic.  How do I make my skin look fresh and renewed?  How do I diminish that sun damage that seems to appear more and more each year. Skin care brands use the word brightening to mean both and either of those topics.

Brightening can be accomplished through:

1. Exfoliation, the removal of dead skin

2. The use of strategic ingredients which will address hyper-pigmentation (age spots) in/ on the skin

3. Some products have mica and light reflecting ingredients to give an appearance of brighter skin or to give the skin a “glow”

Hello Fabbers and Welcome to our favorite day of the week.  Ok, well maybe it's just my favorite day of the week.

It seems like the new buzz words are "anti-aging".  It can be in the foods that you eat or the products that you put on your face and body.  Recently in an article written for Skin, Inc., it is estimated that the Anti-Aging Industry will reach a $5 billion high by the year 2015.  There are so many products and so many choices, how do you know?

I recently came across a company called January Labs, www.januarylabs.com.  Their products are formulated to reduce the signs of aging thru meticulously choosing the correct ingredients. I love their Moisture Balancing Lotion.  I am very sensitive to what I put on my face.  Will it make my skin to oily or does the fragrance linger for too long and make me nauseous?  This lotion is light enough to wear every day- even on hot days and is relatively fragrance free.  When I looked at the list of ingredients, i thought, "Oh my... all those oils are they going to make me break out."  Negative, fellow fabbers.  Each oil has a specific job to do.  Like the Linseed Oil, helps to rejuvenate and revitalize skin that is lacking Omega-3.  And avocado oil aids in replenishing skin that may be too dry from harsh exposure (hello Winter).

But my down right  absolute favorite product from January Labs, is their Glow and Go, exfoliating mask.  This is such an amazing product and I'm so excited to tell you about it.  At first I read exfoliating ... and I automatically thought, almond seed or some sort of bead to scrub up my face.  Nope!  This mask is simply applied to the face and acts just like a mask and in 10-15 minutes you remove for a radiant new face.  I can see why this product is one of their top sellers.  My pores were clean.  My skin looked as if I was 10 years younger.  I couldn't believe how amazing this product is.

Remember age is a matter of the mind and beauty comes from the heart.

Our skin is made from predominantly 3 things, Collagen, elastin and glycosaminoglycans, with collagen playing the main role at almost 80%.

So as you can see right there, this is a very important word in the skin care industry.  There are a ton of treatments out there, moisturizers and all sorts of products which contain collagen.

In the most basic of terms collagen is the protein structure in our bodies (all of our organs, not just the skin which is of course our largest organ).  There is Elastin which is the flexible part, that allows the skin to stretch bounce (and thankfully bounce back), and last but not least is the glycosaminoglycans in the most basic language... are attached to the collagen and are a part of the connective tissue.  This is the part which allows water to bind with the skin.

So collagen treatments are beneficial because keeping the structure and integrity of your skin strong, will help it from sagging, looking wrinkly and withered. 

As we get older the collagen in our skin naturally weakens and depletes.  Sun damage, environmental stresses like pollution and smoke can accelerate the this degrading process.
