Mom’s Time-Saving Beauty Giveaway Week 5: Masks

Like our closet, every now and then, our face requires a serious purge. For a complete overhaul, we reach for M-61 PowerBlast, a 1-minute pore-purifying facial mask that provides a truly deep clean, quick. Its fast-acting formula combines glycolic and salicylic acid to rapidly reduce pore size, even tone and improve overall skin clarity. It also strengthens the skin through its Vitamin K component which combats and prevents discoloration. Don’t worry about any irritation as it contains bilberry antioxidant extract to soothe and calm the skin. We love (and you will too) seeing our complexion instantly go from lackluster to vibrant and healthy!


Life is just better at the beach and the beauty revitalizing effects of a  dip in the salt of the sea are not in your head.  June Jacobs Age Defying Ultimate Overnight Copper Marine Masque, is a natural, paraben, synthetic dye/ fragrance and sulfate free masque. It’s formulated with a multi-mineral complex of Sea lavender, red algae, marine- derived elastin and sweet almond to lock in moisture and reduce the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines. The formula is potent yet soothing and will also help banish tired skin, boosts collagen and even fight off free radical damage through its antioxidant blend of green, red and white tea extracts. When we use this masque, we wake up to a revived and supple complexion.


We don’t mess around when it comes to our skincare routine. We are always diligent about cleansing, moisturizing, treating and of course, using weekly masks. Not only does this keep our skin from losing its luster, we get a little ego boost  each time we wow people with our complexion’s luminosity! We get the most glow for our buck from DECLÉOR Life Radiance Flash Radiance Mask. It is a 3-minute botanical powerhouse mask that boosts radiance, corrects rosy skin tones and banishes blemishes in the blink of an eye! When we apply this mask, we can feel the fruit acid complex penetrating our skin’s surface to slough off the dead skin cells and the increased microcirculation aka purification of our skin at every level to reveal a brighter and renewed face.


Mom’s Time-Saving Beauty Giveaway Week 4: Firming

Everyone has their own tried- and true anti-aging tips. There are the classics like using SPF daily, but here’s a beauty fact you might not know, the skin starts losing elasticity in your early 20s (scary,right). Well thanks to Veneffect Firming Neck and Decollete Creme, you can keep your skin healthy and young by simply adding this made in the U.S.A’s luxurious creme into your daily routine. Veneffect targets two of the most delicate areas, the neck, and decolletage, which  reveal signs of aging first.  It is a groundbreaking formula that combines 7 top of the line anti-aging ingredients to reduce and prevent fine lines, deep wrinkles, and dull skin. Its exclusive Matrixyl 3000  peptide formula stimulates collagen production and reduces wrinkles in the neck area by 39%. While it’s blend of exclusive Phytoestrogen, Vitamin C and B restores skin’s vitality and glow by lightening age spots and evening skin tone. To further preserve the results its shea butter component restores and provides long-lasting moisture, which is locked in by beeswax ( a natural barrier for the skin).  The end result is seriously soft and supple skin.


One of our favorite things to do in life is laugh, but that doesn’t mean we are thrilled to see pronounced laugh lines on our face. So, we decided to seek out professional help. Enter beauty icon Marisa Berenson,the woman that YSL bestowed the title of “the It Girl” of the Seventies” ( we aren’t going to argue with YSL). She believes in a holistic and natural approach to anti-aging and discovered nature’s holy grail ingredient: the Moroccan Prickly Pear. The Marisa Berenson Filler is a convenient roller. which allows for the simple yet effective application designed to effortlessly smooth lines and lift the skin. It immediately transfers its key ingredients (Pricky Pear extract, Hyaluronic acid, and Lavender Oil) to moisturize, plump and stimulate cell renewal. It can also be applied over makeup for a little pick-me-up before a girl’s night out.

Mom’s Time-Saving Beauty Giveaway Week 3: Teeth


Our main goal in life is for our smile to look like we aren’t a serious coffee addict. Luckily, our beauty arsenal contains Supersmile Quikee, which delivers maximum teeth whitening benefits with minimal effort. This professional on-the-go whitening pen removes heavy coffee AND red wine stains (we love any product that is vino approved) through its formula of Calprox and Urea Hydrogen Peroxide. It is also fortified with a calcium and phosphate combination to re-mineralize tooth enamel aka protect your teeth in between brushing. This pen earns serious bonus points for its quick-dissolving formula that works without rinsing.

Mom’s Time-Saving Beauty Giveaway Week 2: Eyes

Let’s just say our first name mise well be efficiency, if we make a trip to the powder room, you better believe we will be refilling our lemon water and doing a quick stretch, which is why our eye products have to share the same proactive mindset. So, for week 2 of our giveaway, we have rounded up our favorite eye products that work instantly and have dual benefits.

WUNDERLIFT: This moisturizing eye cream is formulated with FlexTensor Technology (the combination of a skin-level firming matrix + color correctors) to reduce the appearance of eye wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness in 60 seconds!  On top of that, WUNDERLIFT also releases a micro-filler complex full of nano-HA particles that penetrate into the surface of the skin to fill and plump for long-lasting anti-aging benefits. Unlike other formulas, it does not flake or leave a residue behind, so your skin looks tight and firm for up to 8 hours.

WUNDERBROW:  Any esthetician worth their salt, will tell you that the key to a polished look is your brow game.  Enter, WUNDERBROW, the one-step solution to all your brow woes. It is formulated with Permafix Technology and proprietary Hair Fiber Complex to create the perfect brow in less than 2 minutes.  This one-of-a-kind formula tints (even grays), fills any gaps and ensures brows are perfectly sculpted for days.

Klorane Smoothing and Relaxing Patches with Soothing Cornflower: Your eyes don’t lie and when you are battling a weeklong insomnia bout all the eye cream and concealer won’t revive your tired eyes.  It’s time to call in for reinforcements to rid your peepers of puffiness and fine lines. The most effective way to do that is by using Klorane’s patches. Each patch is infused with rapid acting botanicals to soothe, soften, refresh and brighten the eye area.

TELL US, What beauty product do you use because your mom did?

Mom’s Time-Saving Beauty Giveaway Week 1: Peel


As much as we dream that we could spend an hour pampering our skin with the attentiveness of a skilled esthetician that simply isn’t the case (sometimes we can barely remember to take our makeup off). Fortunately for us (and you), Glytone has created the Rejuvenating Mini Gel Peel with the on-the- go woman in mind. In a mere 10 minutes, this effective treatment exfoliates and retexturizes to reveal younger, even-toned and luminous skin!

  31. Diane Ladnier

    I’ve been using Vaseline to moisturize my lips for years because my mom always carried a little tube of it in her purse. As far as I’m concerned, nothing fixes dry, chapped lips more efficiently than this stuff does.

    I learned that you don’t have to depend on one company for all your cosmetic needs. One company has the best mascara, another the best eye makeup remover!

  58. Colleen | @the905foodie

    My Mom told me if nothing else use moisturizer on your face & gloss on your lips. It’s quick and makes you look pulled together – plus your skin is protected.

  59. Jamie Johnson

    The best time saving tip came from my mother after she had been dying from cancer for over 7 years. We were having one of our last talks, and she was trying to keep it light. She could see I was holding back tears, and said, Baby, don’t cry, it’ll just ruin your makeup. She said if you know you’re going to cry, best invest in a good waterproof mascara. That and a big pair of sunglasses. She also said on days when you don’t even want to leave the house, let alone put on your face, just swipe on some red lipstick, spray some good perfume, and out the door you go. My mom was right, as usual. Love and miss you every day Mom! xoxo, Jamie

  60. Tava

    get your clothing & shoes picked out set the skin care by the sink, makeup near the mirror and keys by the door before you go to bed so that when anything goes wrong in the morning from wee ones to rolling over and going back to sleep you’re as set for the day as you can be

  61. Samantha B

    The best time saving tip Mom taught me was courtesy gets you farther, faster.

  64. Sandy Weinstein

    my mother taught me to always use sunscreen all of the time even though she was a sun lover. she said she did not want me to get the dark spots on my skin like she had. no instagram.

  65. Michelle Deitz

    My mom taught me to always take care of your looks! LOL She was always a fashionista! She love doing her makeup everyday! She would take hours lol nothing time-saving! She was a beautician, so you can understand.


    ALWAYS remove your makeup before bed and always use sunblock, not only in summertime

  67. Sarah Piche

    Wow, I wish I wasn’t the poor phD student I am, I could get such awesome products. I usually tend to buy Clinique cosmetics since I never have allergic reactions to them. However, they are quite expensive so I compensate with cheap make-up like Essence and Marcelle or sample or Lancôme once in a while 🙂

  68. Elisse

    The best time-saving tip my mom gave me was how to “multi-task”- back before that was a word! LOL

  69. Cynthia Knisely

    My Mom taught me to use the best skincare products and cosmetics. Her favorite cosmetic line was Estee Lauder.

  70. Roxana Barriere

    My Mother did not wear makeup so I had to learn tips and techniques on my own. I did learn one beauty tip from her – do not smoke! Causes wrinkles! She was proof of this.

  75. Nancy

    Mom’s beauty products and mine differ. Mom’s a minimalist. However she used Shiseido and Shaklee products which are classics.

  76. Jessica Herring

    Putting the mascara at the defroster vent when it’s cold helps to make it work better!

    My best time-saving tip that my mom ever gave me was apply moisturizer right after the shower, so it will have time to set. Then when you are ready for make-up your face will be too! Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.
