Good Night Cream

Happy Wednesday makeup lovers!  I have to write about an overnight cream that I have grown to love.  Every night before bed, I clean my face and apply Mario Badescu's Seaweed Night Cream.  It is just perfect for combination skin, as it hydrates the skin without use of oils!  The seaweed extract makes the skin so soft and contains Elastin and Collagen- Bye Bye Wrinkles! Plus, anything that smells this amazing is a check in my book.  It is so good, I even got my husband to try it out!  When your husband raves about an overnight cream - it must be a keeper.  Available for purchase at Nordstrom, Ulta, or direct from the website!

Back to Basics

Ok guys, I love makeup- actually I may have a severe obsession with everything makeup-  but before you can look glamorous, you must start with the basics.  I have a few items that I simply cannot live without.  I am obsessed with Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm and Smith's Rosebud Salve, both created by the Rosebud Perfume Co. To be honest, this company must be doing something right as they have been around since 1892!  I use these products on every single client, (men and women) and it is just perfect.  The Salve is not greasy at all, and glides on smoothly.  The Minted Rose Balm has just a teeny tint of nude with a peppermint zest, good morning dolls!

Let's be honest, you can't apply beautiful makeup unless you have a squeaky clean palette to start with.  We don't always have enough time to go through the necessary beauty regimens to clean and prep our skin before applying makeup.  My favorite makeup remover is a drugstore favorite, Neutrogena makeup remover cleansing towelettes.   I can't get enough of these.  They take off every ounce of makeup, even waterproof mascara, and leave my skin soft and smooth. I prefer the night calming scent because it reminds me of lavender. If you haven't tried these cloths yet, what are you waiting for?
