7 Beauty Products We're Grateful For!

Thanksgiving is only a few days away and it’s the perfect week to reflect on all the things we’re thankful for. It goes without saying that we’re thankful for all the important, big things like family, friends, our jobs, health, etc. In the spirit of Thanksgiving this Thursday, we’re rounding up beauty products we’re thankful for and can’t live without! Now, I know there are so many different products to choose from, so these are just a few of many.

1. NuFace Trinity: This award-winning toning device has completely changed the skincare game with anti-aging solutions and beauty tools. For years, surgery seemed like the only option for anyone looking for a significant change in their skin. Thanks to the microcurrent technology in the NuFace device, you can achieve noticeable results from home without any downtime. The NuFace works to improve the facial contours while reducing the appearance of wrinkles, giving the skin a desired, youthful appearance. FDA-Cleared and clinically-tested, we are thankful for this amazing beauty tool!


Ready to show some skin? Do the bare necessities first!

The days are warming up and it's that time of the year for showing off a little extra skin. If you're not quite ready for shorts and sandals season, here are some tips on getting your skin spring and summer ready. 

1. Give your skin a good scrubbin’: The first step toward soft and supple skin is getting rid of dry, rough patches with an exfoliating product. Scrubbing away dead skin not only allows your other body products (oils, lotions and balms) to work better, but you’ll also get a closer shave on your legs. One of our favorite scrubs is Caudalie’s Crushed Cabernet Scrub. A natural and nut-free scrub, a blend of invigorating oils awakens your senses and leaves your skin irresistibly soft.

2. Slather on some oil: Get a natural-looking glow by using a body oil right after your shower or bath. L’occitane’s Almond Supple Skin Oil quickly absorbs into your skin, giving it instant smoothness, firmness and hydration.  Made with over  50% almond oil, your skin will benefit from rich omegas, leaving you feeling super silky after each use.

5 Products That Will Make You Look Beautiful By Morning

Ladies, we all know how important getting our beauty sleep is. Getting the right amount of sleep not only allows your body to heal, but keeps you looking rested and youthful. There are also great beauty products that are specifically designed for nighttime use to help you wake up looking refreshed. If you're ready for that perfect I-woke-up-like-this-morning, then you have to give these overnight treatments a try. 

1. Alterna Caviar Overnight Hair Rescue: For beautiful and healthy-looking strands come morning, try Alterna's Overnight Hair Rescue from their anti-aging Caviar line. All you need to do is apply 2-3 pumps to dry hair, put it up in a bun or cap and call it a night. This healing treatment works while you sleep, moisturizing and repairing tired, stressed out hair. Ingredients like Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil, Keratin and Caviar Extract leave your hair softer and stronger than before. Make this a part of your nightly ritual 2 to 3 times a week for beautiful, shiny hair.

2. Caudalie Polyphenol C15 Overnight Detox Oil: We've all had those weeks where our skin gets a case of the blahs. You may be overworked and too tired to wash your face at night. You may have had a bad junk food week or you're drinking more coffee than water. Whatever the reason, nothing makes your skin feel better than a little detox. This amazing dry oil is used at night to renew and protect your skin while you get your beauty rest. 5 essential oils and 3 vegetal oils (all plant-based) work diligently through the night, improving cellular renewal while getting rid of aging toxins in your skin. You'll wake feeling refreshed and ready for the day.

Met Gala 2014 Inspiration

Every year, the Met Gala delivers with high fashion, gorgeous beauty trends and artful inspiration that makes all of us want to be a little more fierce and fabulous. From classic ball gowns to modern short dresses, A-List celebrities make their mark on the red carpet, taking risks and going bold. This year, I was particularly surprised with some of our favorite younger actresses rocking the red carpet in a seamless fashion. Blake Lively, Hailee Steinfeld and Emma Stone all brought a different look to the Gala and each was a winner in their own right. 

Blake Lively

Why we loved her look: No matter what role she's playing on screen, she sure knows how to rock the vintage Hollywood glam look. From her sexy, vintage waves to her natural makeup and heart-stopping dress, it was hard to take your eyes off her.

PB <3s JDRF!
