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 3: Gift Set Countless skincare systems require tons of products to see any results. But, who has the time in the morning to complete a six treatment routine? Not us! ClarityMD’s 2-Step System is simple and effective meaning the path to clear skin is no fuss and no drama. Use the Deep Pore cleanser and clarifying Serum morning and night then follow with your regular routine (it really is that simple).

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.

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!

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.
