10 Tips for Making Your "Blow Out" Last

10 Tips for Making Your "Blow Out" Last
Photo Caption: Gwyneth Paltrow getting her signature "Blo Out" by David Babaii

By David Babaii, Partner, Blo Blow Out Bar

Women everywhere love the treat of getting a "blo out". Especially, when you walk out of one of our Blo Blow Dry Bar locations looking fabulous, hair bouncing with every step. So how do you make that feeling and look last? Here are my 10 tips and tricks for a multi-day "blo out".
  1. Have your stylist start with a shampoo and conditioner that is designed for your specific hair type. My motto has always been that a great hair day starts with a clean canvas. If your hair is oily, you do not need a hydrating shampoo plus only condition the ends.

  2. When you go to bed at night, consider a silky pillow case.  They allow the hair to move freely while sleeping so you can prevent flattening the volume you love.

  3. For those sleek straight blo outs, take a scrunchie. Gently pull hair back into a low ponytail, twisting it loosely around to keep hair in place. For longer lengths, try wrapping coated bands mid- center and  at the ends of the pony. Also, a great flat iron is a must to rid your blo out of any imperfections, humidity or daily side effects from the elements.

  4. When you wake up in the morning, you can freshen your scalp several ways. For my natural beauties, create a small mixture of water and lemon juice. Then, take a cotton ball moistening it slightly, making sure to squeeze any left-over juice out. Next, gently start by cleansing the hairline followed by parting small sections and cleaning the scalp area only. This will absorb and clean away any access oils while giving your hair a fresh scent. For my busy working gals, a dry shampoo is quick and easy to use.

  5. In the shower, loosely wrap your hair into a soft cotton towel to keep any moisture and humidity from seeping into your do. Shower caps are great but I feel they tend to flatten your hair and cause your head to sweat; a cotton towel allows your head to breathe.

  6. To refresh your volume or waves, invest in Velcro rollers (jumbo to medium sizes). Before your first cup of coffee or stepping into the shower, simply roll your fringe on a jumbo, lifting the section to a 90 degree angle so you can maintain volume. Do the same for the top, sides and back. If needed, you can add a few more. Allow the Velcro rollers to stay in for about 30 minutes, then remove and finger comb your hair into place. For beachy waves, opt for a professional grade beach spray then after spritzing, twist strands in various diameters to bring life back into your Bo-ho chic look.

  7. A round brush (medium for short to chin length hair and large for longer hair) can also quickly smooth any flaws from sleeping or a shower. It can also be used to retouch your fringe. Simply use a nozzle attachment on your blow dryer to have more air concentration; then take your round brush on dry hair wrapping your fringe evenly over the brush. Follow this with a blast of hot air then a shot of cool. Roll the brush a few times if your hair has a stubborn streak to it. You can use the same technique anywhere your hair needs a quick touch-up.

  8. Do not overuse products in-between blo outs. This causes the hair to not only weigh itself down but, the build-up soils your hair and scalp quicker.

  9. Try not to run your fingers through your hair or play with it when bored. This increases stimulation to the scalp for unwanted oil. Also, the day-to-day soot on our hands will add some nastys.

  10. If you wish to change your style in-between blo outs, accessories are always the easiest and fastest way to make simple alterations. A headband, decorative pins and clips plus great hair ties can do the trick. Try putting your hair to one side, in a ponytail or creating a faux bob. All these styles will still help to maintain your original blo out.

     Finally, make sure you have made your next appointment at Blo Blow Dry Bar ~

GIVEAWAY: Win Life & Food's Garcinia Cambogia Natural Appetite Suppressant

This isn't the first time I've written about Garcinia Cambogia, and that's simply because it works! If you haven't tried it yet, you will truly be amazed and how effective it actually is! 

Garcinia Cambogia is actually a healthy, and delicious fruit derived from Indonesia (also knows as Tamarind). The fruit itself is rich in calcium, iron, thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, and phosphorus. The rind of the fruit contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which contains components that have been shown to suppress the appetite as well as prevent the body from storing fat. It has also been shown to raise "feel good" serotonin levels in the brain. Which if you know anything about the brain, this is a chemical naturally released in the brain that makes you happy. A lot of anti-depressants work to raise the serotonin in the brain. Say goodbye to emotional eating! 

While Garcinia Cambogia is a supplement and isn't regulated by the FDA (so be sure to use caution) a lot of people, including myself have seen some amazing results when using it. The makers of this product, Life & Food are also know for its upmost safety and quality!

I had been taking Garcinia Camobogia for awhile and took a break. When I got my Food and Life Garcinia Cambogia supplements a few weeks ago, I started taking them again right away (2 pills a day, first thing in the morning with an 8 oz glass of water, 20-30 minutes before eating) and on the first day I noticed a substantial difference in my appetite. This supplement contains 80% HCA, (which is one of the highest on the market) so you know you're going to get maximum results while using it. 

I normally eat three meals plus 2 snacks a day. While taking the Life and Food Garcinia Cambogia supplements, I completely eliminated my two snacks for the day, as well as ate a much later lunch. I would eat my protein smoothie and juice in the morning (which is what I normally eat) and would stay full all morning until about 2 or 2:30 pm in the afternoon!

I've heard from others that you need to be sure to workout while using your Garcinia Cambogia. I've noticed this myself lately. On days I don't work out, I feel like I don't feel the effects as much and my weight doesn't' decrease either. When using this supplement, its probably best to get your daily workout in to get the maximum results. Even if you can just get out to take the dog for a walk around the neighborhood, something is better than nothing! If I know I won't have time for a workout that day, I actually won't worry about taking my Garcinia Cambogia that day.



I've been using the supplement for a few weeks now, and while my weight tends to fluctuate quite a bit anyway, especially when I go on vacation, which I did twice while taking this supplement, my weight has gone up and down, but on days I take the pill and workout, I notice a much bigger difference in how much less I eat, and see my weight dip a bit too.

Like everything that has to do with weight loss, it's no magic pill. You still have to eat right, keep portions in check, and workout regularly. But if you're doing these things while taking this supplement, you most likely will see a difference in your weight and see yourself drop a pant size or two over time!

I'm a big fan of Garcinia Cambogia and will continue using it regularly. I've see myself successfully lose weight while using it correctly (in combination with eating right and working out). It's a fantastic little supplement to help you shed those last few unwanted pounds, especially if you've hit a plateau in your weight loss. If you are just starting out on your weight loss journey, this supplement can also be extremely helpful in helping you regulate what you're eating, as well as helping you to naturally eat less, and eliminate a lot of emotional eating, thanks to it's natural serotonin-inducing properties.

Also if you've tried "diet pills" before, you know that most of them are ineffective and a lot of them will just end up giving you the jitters. You absolutely won't get the jitters with this product, and you will be amazed at just how effective it can actually be! You also won't find wheat, soy, eggs, filler, fish, stimulants, or any additives in this product. Also, no contaminants, binders, or toxins can be found in Life & Food's Garcinia Cambogia either!


If you would like to try this product out for yourself, you can find Life & Food's Garcinia Cambogia on Amazon HERE. Get the 180 count bottle on sale for only $24 right now too!


Also, Life & Food is letting me give away a bottle to one of my fabulous readers!

Lending Luxury Your Way


I don't know who thought of renting out clothes and accessories, but they are genius! I mean, come on, how many of us can really afford to keep buying those super expensive dresses and designer shoes and bags? And even if you do fork out the money for that one gorgeous gown, it's "out" next season anyway. While I believe good quality bags and shoes are a good investment, I have a hard time buying clothes that cost more then I will wear them. Which I don't know about you, but for me, its only a couple of wears. 

I'm a shopping whore. I'll full on admit that. I shop and shop and shop, and often times always end up throwing money away because I just won't get that many wears out of it. I've learned over time, that I like to be on trend, and my style is not really classic as much as I thought it was, so it's best for me to buy less inexpensive clothes I can just throw out the next year or two when they're not in style any more.

But what happens when you do have that really important occasion where you really do need a classic dress that doesn't look like you just picked it up for $50? Well, that is where the rentals come in ladies. I promise you will love yourself for saving yourself big bucks, and renting a gorgeous gown for that special evening, and then never thinking twice about it again. Hopefully you can get that picture in that fabulous dress to remember how beautiful you looked, but you won't have to worry about forking out a lot of money for a gown you're going to feel the need to where every time a special occasion comes up. After all, who wants to keep wearing the same dress anyway?! 

Borrowing a gorgeous gown is totally the way to go, especially if like me, unfortunately you don't have the need to dress up too often anyway. 

I recently came across LendingLuxury.com and couldn't wait to try the rental experience for myself, as I've never done it before. I picked out a gorgeous white gown with delicate beading I was head over heels in love with just from the picture, but when it showed up, wow!! 

The gown showed up in a super cute package, along with a garment bag you get to keep. When I pulled the gown out, it felt and looked so incredibly luxurious. I knew that wherever I wore this, I was going to get all kinds of the right attention, and boy did I! I filmed my video and took the pics on the front step of my house, and had a couple neighbors come over and ask what was going on as well as tell me how nice I looked. 



I went out for a big night out on the town in the dress and saying I felt like a princess in it, is putting it lightly. I don't know that I've ever worn such a high quality gown. This gown is over $500 retail, but for a 5 day rental, you only have to pay $70. Also, get FREE Return shipping on your dress! You also have the option to rent for 10 days or even 15 days if you want to get a few wears in, or just give yourself plenty of time to get the dress shipped back. You can also pick the date for when it will be shipped to you (as soon as one or two days out!) Prices vary on the dresses, and Lending Luxury has such a huge selection of dresses for every occasion, including prom, and even your wedding! 

Also, if you have a favorite designer and would like a dress specifically from them, there is a good chance you will find them at Lending Luxury! They carry products from over 100 designers, and it's super easy to shop their site by designer to find the specific designer you're looking for! You can also find dresses in tons of different sizes, ranging from a size 0 to a size 16! They also ship to anywhere in the US!

Check out how I styled my beautiful gown here:























Want to see this beautiful dress in action?
Check out my video here:






When it comes time to return the dress, just keep the box it came in, place it in the box, place the pre-paid shipping label, and drop off at your nearest USPS store! You don't even have to worry about cleaning the dress! Cleaning and insurance is included in the rental price and return shipping is always FREE!


The process for renting a luxury, high quality, designer dress couldn't be easier! I got my dress in 2 days, had 10 days to wear it and get it shipped back. I didn't have to worry about cleaning it and got a garment bag out of the deal too!

I'm done spending lots of money on expensive gowns and dresses I will only wear a couple of times or feel guilted into wearing a bunch only because I spent that kind of money, but would really rather be wearing something else, more of the moment.



If you have a special occasion coming up, or maybe you just don't want to spend money on dresses you will only wear once, then LendingLuxury is for you! Be sure to check them out today at LendingLuxury.com and let the guilt-free shopping begin!



Happy Shopping!

GIVEAWAY: Your Summer Must Have Skincare Duo: Skinauthority Redness Relief and Sunscreen Moisturizer Review

I've always heard lots about Skinauthority but never had the pleasure of trying it out for myself! Luckily, I was recently asked to try out the Redness Relief and Sunscreen moisturizer summer duo from Skinauthority, and couldn't wait to try it out and see what all the hype is about!

This duo works together to address all kinds of summer skin-ailments you might come across. Of course we all know how important wearing our daily sunscreen is, but what about if you forgot or wasn't as thorough as you should've been with applying it? Well that is where the Redness Relief cream comes in! Use this cream to treat burns, even bug bites, excema, and any general redness you may have in your skin. 

You don't just have to save this duo for summer, the Redness Relief also works great for dry, itchy, winter skin too! Sunscreen is also a must in the colder months too! In fact, the Sunscreen moisturizer is one of Skinauthority's best selling products, probably due to the fact that it has a lovely, exclusive dry finish you won't find in most other sunscreens! It works great under makeup and even in humidity too! 

When my products showed up, they couldn't have come at a better time! I was just leaving for a trip to Utah to visit a beautiful lake nestled in the mountains, where I would be doing lots of boating, wake boarding, paddle boarding, playing in the water, and just getting lots of sun!

I used the products for a few days before getting to the lake, and fell in love immediately. Both are super smooth, but still rich and creamy so you know it's doing you some good, and it's also great for all skin types! 



I use my SkinAuthority sunscreen moisturizer with SPF 30 every day under my makeup and have absolutely loved using it. It blends into my skin very well, unlike a lot of other sunscreens. It doesn't feel the least bit heavy or greasy on my skin either. My skin soaks it up in seconds, and I can move onto my makeup. I was already impressed with it before I ever got to the lake to really test it out by spending all day in the sun and water.

The first day, I forgot to take it with me. I just applied it in the morning, but ended up getting in the lake a few times and didn't reapply. I was in the sun the entire day plus got wet about three different times, but when I got back to the cabin that night, only my nose was a little bit red. The rest of my face, neck, chest, and ears, where I had applied my Skinauthority sunscreen was not burned! I was beyond impressed!

For the rest of the week on my vacation at the lake, I was more diligent about applying my Skinauthority sunscreen throughout the day, especially after getting wet, and experienced no sun burns.

Since returning home, I'm still wearing it daily under my makeup and love the quick dry finish it has, and that my skin is not left feeling greasy at all. It's easy to apply my makeup right after, and my makeup looks perfectly matte, even though I've used sunscreen under it!


After getting a bit of a red nose the first day at the lake, you can bet I was testing out the Redness Relief cream. Actually I tried it a few times before that too, because I tend to have red blotchy skin, especially upon waking up in the morning. I did notice that it seemed to even my skin tone out a bit, but most importantly, my sun burned nose was gone the next day after applying this cream to it, and I experienced no pain, itchiness, or irritation whatsoever from the burn!

Being at the lake with my family, I actually ended up sharing my redness relief with a ton of people who got a bit burned, including my husband. He, unfortunately, got a bad burn on the back of his neck, so I had him apply this that night. The burn looked much better the next day, and he said it had helped immensely, because he had been feeling some pain prior to using the Redness Relief Cream, but not after!



I've absolutely loved using both of these products from Skinauthority, and wouldn't dream of going another summer without either of them! They are both amazing products that are very effective! Sunscreen is so important, we need to be using it everyday anyway! I've tried my fair share of sunscreens and am super picky about them, but this sunscreen totally impressed me! It doesn't feel like a sunscreen at all and is actually very moisturizing too! This is a sunscreen I will be using daily for many years to come! I absolutely love it!

Exquisite and Unique: Tasty Wine Sent Right to Your Door: Uncorked Ventures

I like my wine. I REALLY like my wine, especially the red. I've always been picky about what I drink, and it took me years before I tried a cabernet and finally fell in love with wine. Since then, I've gradually branched out in the reds, but I'm still pretty picky about what goes into my mouth. Over the years, I've tried dozens and dozens of reds, but usually stick with a few favorites. 

Recently I was asked to try out some reds from Uncorked Ventures.  If you haven't heard of UncorkedVentures.com, they are a fabulous online wine club that picks up the best wines around the west coast, (many of which I guarantee you've never heard of) found in California, Oregon, and Washington, then ships them straight to your door each month! 

The real amazing thing about this wine club, is that you can score amazing, and some rare wines, at a fabulous deal! The creators of Uncorked Ventures set out to meet up with vineyards, getting to know these companies on a personal level, establishing long term relationships, working along side them to see their wine-making process, and in turn, benefitting you, the buyer, by getting some exceptional wine, maybe even wines they don't normally offer to their market, at a price you will love!

You can choose from several different wine of the month options, ranging from just $40 to $195 per shipment (shipments include 2-3 bottles of wine). Members also receive special discounts! If you're a little weary of joining the club just yet, you can always order gift baskets which include fun treats like wine essentials, chocolate, or gourmet foods sent, with your bottle(s) of wine!

Anyway, on to the good stuff… what did I think of the wine? Well my three bottles showed up promptly and packaged very nicely and safely. My package also included a note on the background of the wines as well as good food pairings for it. I thought it was really interesting to read through and get a better understanding of where the wine came from, the wine-making process, this history behind it, and the ingredients found in each bottle. 





I dived into the Andis Barbera first and paired it with a portabello mushroom and pasta dinner (as suggested). The flavor is extremely exceptional and although it's a bit on the dry side (which I love) It is still smooth enough for those who lean towards white or a more smoother wine. 

I loved the rich creamy, smooth taste, and found that it tasted amazing with the pasta, but also on it's own. I had a glass with dinner and a glass afterwards. In truth, I just wasn't ready to strop drinking it after dinner. Like I said above, I'm picky about my reds, but this wine is one I could certainly see myself drinking for many years to come! 




I've had a great time testing out these red wines over the last few weeks, but the real surprise came from the Buonocore Good Heart Zinfandel. I've tried many zinfandels over the years and have never been a big fan. My friend was over one day, and being normally a big beer drinker, she doesn't venture out into wine much, and when she has with me, she hasn't often liked my dry reds.

I asked her what she was in the mood for, and she said she would like to try something on the sweeter side. I saw the Zinfandel, and thought, this is one I bet she would like. When I opened it up and poured the first glass (oh yeah, you can bet it didn't stop at just one!) We both took a sip together, and almost simultaneously, "Mmmmm! This is Good!" I was beyond impressed, and I could see by her face, that she was too! This is one of the smoothest wines I've ever tasted. You don't get that harsh alcohol taste at all. I had to look at the bottle to make sure I didn't get duped and that it did actually have alcohol in it.

When you take your first sip, you pick up on the delicious blend of cherry and strawberry. It immediately tastes sweet. I could tell I had impressed her! I was impressed too! This Zinfandel is a candy lover's drink! I loved the sweet taste and I'm a huge fan of berries so I loved that my wine was so flavorful while also rich in taste.

Although it's so smooth and you almost taste no alcohol in it, by my second glass I was feeling really good. Just a warning to those of you out there who think this wine may be less strong because you don't taste it. It isn't! So beware! 



All in all, I am a huge fan of the wine club from Uncorked Ventures. I loved that it helped me venture out from my usual boring cabernet and try some different reds that I surprisingly loved much more than my regular Red Wine I keep stocked. I have a completely new take on Zinfandels, in fact, I dare say, this Buonocore Zinfandel is by far the best Zinfandel I've ever had, and maybe one of the best wines I've ever tasted too! I'm dead serious. You can bet I will be keeping this wine on hand from now on! My non-wine drinking friend was even completely sold on it and agreed that I should always keep a bottle of this on the rack!

If you are a wine connoisseur,  like to try new wines, or maybe have just gotten bored with your usual, you should certainly give Uncorked Ventures a try! I promise, you won't be disappointed! This fabulous selection of three red wines were around $115 in total. Well worth the price if you ask me! But like I said before, you can choose your price range if you'd rather stick to a smaller wine budget each month. You can get amazing wines hand selected each month, and sent right to your door! I also love this, as I really hate going to the liquor store here in my small town, checking out the tiny, same boring selection, and always ending up with something just mediocre. No more! I can have some amazing wine stored away at all times that are exquisite, unique, tasty, and sure to please and help create new, lasting memories!

So what are you waiting for? Be sure to check out UncorkedVentures.com today!


Happy Tasting!

Time to Get Your Youthful Skin Back: Exuviance Vitamin C Anti-Aging Booster and Evening Restorative Complex Review


Saying that I'm concerned with the look and feel of my skin, would be putting it lightly. Being a beauty blogger, I'm always on the hunt for the next big thing. I'm constantly looking for little miracle workers and get so excited when I find a product worth sharing with my readers.

I had heard of the Exuviance brand before, by NeoStrata, but had never had the pleasure of trying it. While this brand isn't super popular yet, it is definitely a brand worth checking into! 

Exuviance carries a wide range of skincare products to cover all skin care needs for all ages and skin types. You can find cleansers, toners, sunscreen, moisturizers, eye creams, neck creams, and more. 

Exuviance has had great clinical results! The line has been clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. People who have used it have also noticed firmer, tighter, smoother skin, as well as a more even skin tone. In fact, a whopping 90% of users saw a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and 83% saw diminished under eye circles. 

So what exactly makes this line of skincare so effective? Well Exuviance uses a patent bionic, highly evolved blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Polyhydroxy.

The results are pretty amazing, so I couldn't wait to give the brand a try! When my Evening Restorative complex and Vitamin C Anti-Aging booster arrived at my door, you can bet I was trying it out before bed that night! 



Anyone who has read my blog for long knows that I'm a huge fan of Vitamin C for skin. It has been shown to effectively fight signs of aging, such as reducing wrinkles and sun spots, and is super gentle on the skin, not to mention natural! It is also great for helping protect the skin from further damage too! I knew when I opened up the vitamin C booster from Exuviance, that I would surely be seeing some great results.  

Along with natural Vitamin C, Exuviance also contains a patented super antioxidant Aceta C, which enhances the natural benefits of vitamin C, amplifying the results of vitamin C even more! 



The Evening Restorative Complex is full of high complex anti-aging benefits. The powerful solution helps give your skin a more youthful appearance and look, while combatting signs of aging. Users of this product found that skin was smoother, more velvety, fine lines were reduced, and they also saw an increase in firmness and elasticity of their skin. Along with the extremely effective blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Polyhydroxy, you will ask find Vitamins A, C,  and E in the Evening Restorative Compex!



To use these products together, it couldn't be any easier. Just shake about 5 shakes from the Vitamin C Booster, or use a half of the spoon they supply you with, and mix it with the Evening Restorative complex, then apply to your face, neck, chest, and hands, or anywhere you want more youthful-looking skin!


I used this product for the last week or so, and even though it hasn't been long, I've already been completely impressed with the results. My skin feels much more moisturized and is noticeably smoother, softer, and yet looks and feels a bit more firm too. My sun spots have also been less noticeable, even though I've been spending a considerable amount in the sun the last week, after my trip to a beautiful Utah Lake. I've also seen an improvement around the fine lines and crows feet around my eyes as well! They seem less prominent and not quite as noticeable.

Overall, my skin looks and feels more youthful. It looks like it has more of a glow to it too, and not my usual dull skin appearance. Even just feeling my face now, it feels much more plump, and super soft.

This is a wonderful anti-aging product for women of any age. It not only fights what signs of your age have already unfortunately popped up on your face, but the duo also help fight off the aging process as well, protecting it from the environment, pollutants, and lots of other nasty things that make our skin look older!



If you would like to learn more about the Exuviance line from NeoStrata, or pick up some wonderful skincare products for yourself, be sure to check them out at NeoStrata.com today!



Happy Beautifying!

Finally, a Heavenly Scent AND Amazing Results In an Organic Moisturizer: Eminence Guava & Bamboo Age-Defying Moisturizer Review


It seems that a lot of effective, even natural skincare products can be, well, not the best smelling products ever. You know what I mean? Even the unscented ones, and actually sometimes they're the worst culprits of all!

I'm always trying new concoctions of skincare products, and while I really only notice the scent when I first apply them, I've gotten my fair share of comments from my husband about the latest "stinky" product on my face. 

I don't know about you, but the results, of course, are my highest priority when it comes to skincare, and that it is natural and safe for my skin, but after hearing that my face smells, the scent of what I use has slowly made it's way up to the top of my skincare needs ladder too. I mean, how many of us want to get into bed with our significant others, even if we sprayed on some perfume and shaved those legs, but our face is smelling something serious, thanks to our anti-wrinkle, super fighting restorative night cream. It's a buzz kill for sure, and a major confidence killer too! 

Well, lord knows I've run into this problem many times, but when my Eminence Guava and Bamboo Age-defying Moisturizer showed up, it put all my fears to bed. Literally. This moisturizer is one of the best smelling moisturizers I've ever used. You won't even need that perfume or nice smelling skin lotion when using this amazing organic skin care product. In fact, the first night I did use it, I crawled into bed, and instead of getting crap about my smelly skincare products like I normally do, he actually complimented it and told me how much he LOVED the scent! Wow, I've never gotten that kind of reaction from a facial moisturizer! I was sold right away!

Along with an amazing scent, and of course that it's natural and organic, the Eminence moisturizer is sure to please even the stubbornest of beauty users. The cream is absolutely luscious and feels so soft and creamy. I loved using it nightly before bed, and I would use it occasionally in the morning as well. In fact, if you want to, you can use it up to three times a day to give you much needed moisturization!

The moisturizer is incredibly moisturizing and leaves the skin feeling so soft, smooth, and supple. The Bamboo and guava in this product, are extremely moisturizing for all skin types. This super hydrating moisturizer is loaded with proteins, antioxidants, and lots and lots of vitamins, that leave your skin feeling so incredibly pampered. You will feel like you just walked out of the spa, and smell like it too! In fact, that's because so many spas around the country actually use and sell Eminence skin care products! Now you know they must be some of the most amazing products on the market, right?! I looked up their handy online spa finder on the Eminence Website, and found the one really nice spa in my tiny little country town just so happens to carry their products! 

I noticed a beautiful glow right away after using my Eminence Age-Defying Moisturizer. The moisturizer although thick, glides over the face and you feel the skin devour it. I put it on a little heavy the first few times, you only need a little bit, but my skin still soaked it up and seemed to be in complete heaven while using this product. You feel the results almost instantly, and you can see them too!

You can also find Bioflavanoids in this product, which helps protect skin from free radicals. They also improve skin elasticity, as well as fight the signs of pre-mature aging. The amino acids in the Eminence Moisturizer also give your skin that amazing smooth porcelain complexion, which is the first thing I picked up on while using this product. You look in the mirror afterwards, and you can see the difference immediately! I RARELY find that in skincare products! 

When using this product regularly, the ingredients in this amazing moisturizer will give you long-lasting results, as well as refine poor texture and tone too. You will notice the beautiful glow you get while using this product because it works to help renew cells and detoxify your skin. 




I'm absolutely head over heels for this moisturizer and can see myself using it for years. The scent is absolutely heavenly, but the beautiful glow it gave my skin is what ultimately won me over, not to mention that my skin looks and feels much younger too! The sun spots are fading and the fine lines look much less noticeable as well!


I highly recommend this wonderful moisturizer to anyone looking for some wonderful, natural benefits, and a more youthful glow and appearance! In fact, after looking over the Eminence site, I want to try everything! They have tons of wonderful different skincare products for all ages, skin types, and needs!
