It’s that time of year again…SUMMER!  It’s time to take out your sleeveless shirts and dresses and of course…Bathing Suits. What does this all mean? It’s time for Mio Skincare’s Skin Tight Body Serum. Skin Tight tightening body serum is just the nudge your skin needs to  help with tightening, smoothing and ultra softness.

I use many of Mio Skincare products and Skin Tight is sensational. The founders of Mio skincare are firm beliveres in giving you Fit Skin For Life, and indeed they have.

You only need 1 or 2 applications of Skin Tight a week and after only one application, you will immediately feel the serum work. After 30 days, you will see maximum results. I am focusing on my neck and arms and after applying Skin Tight, I feel a slight tightening sensation as the serum dries and starts to work its magic. The refreshing herbal scent smells fantastic and really gets you going in the morning.

Skin Tight is designed to firm “crepey, overstretched tummies, knees, bumpy backs of arms, thighs.”  Skin Tight tightening serum also offers a gentle exfoliation which you can’t even feel as you massage it into your skin. After applying, yuo will feel the softness of your skin, it’s amazing!

Use Skin Tight anywhere on your body. As stated by Mio Skincare, “This retexturising serum is multi-purpose. Boobs, tummy, backs of arms, tops of legs and droopy knees can all benefit from a little ‘lift, tighten and tone’!”

Another great aspect with Skin Tight is that you don’t have to give up your favorite body moisturizers and lotions. Simply apply Skin Tight as a base  and allow to dry for 15 minutes before using other products.

Skin Tight tightening serum offer the perfect skin tightening, retexturizing, and brighter for uneven crepey skin. Skin Tight contains exfoliating Papaya Enzymes, hydrating Hyaluronic Acid, brightening Vitamin C, antioxidants Pomegranate and Green Tea and their unique firming Oat Protein Complex  fights off future wrinkles and sags.

The summer has just begun and its never too late to pamper your skin and give it a little something extra like tightening with Mio Skincare’s Skin Tight tightening Serum.

Fragrances Men will love this Father’s Day

Posted on: June 6th, 2014


With Father’s Day right around the corner, I am constantly asked the same question, “What should we get dad for Father’s Day?”. Thankfully, my 20 year old son weighed in and mentioned two colognes he found at our local mall while Father’s Day shopping. He found a few colognes that he thought would be good choices for “Dad”. My son likes to have a say in the fragrances we buy for “Dad”, because , after all, he will most likely be using it the most. My boys are huge fans of Ralph Lauren fragrances and Polo Blue Sport is right up there as being one of there favorites. They thought this would make a great gift because of the light citrus scent of green apples, mint, mandarin, sage and ginger. It is the perfect scent for a day on the golf course, a day at the beach or right at home watching his favorite sporting event on TV.  Any man will truly love this scent and it is the perfect gift for the favorite man in your life.  My children chose this as their gift to Dad. Polo Blue Sport can be found at at  It is available in 2.5 oz. and  4.2 oz. bottles.




The fragrance I chose is a spectacular fragrance that I know my husband will also love, Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf. The fragrance is very masculine and I will love this scent on him.

Spicebomb by Victor & Rolf carries Top notes of bergamot, grapefruit, pink pepper and elemi; Middle notes of cinnamon chili pepper and saffron; Bottom notes of leather, vetiver and tobacco.

The fragrance has a very masculine scent, one you might find as explosive! You really have to experience this fragrance at It is available in 1.7 oz. and 3 oz. bottles.

Le Feu de L’eau Natural Soy based Candles are a must this Summer!

Le Feu de L’eau

Le Feu de L’eau



Le Feu De L’eau Boutique Luxury candles are a  fine-art inspired collection of colorful, organic, sculptural candles, featuring bespoke water textured patterns and chic, natural scents. Le Feu de L’Eau, or “The Fire of the Water,” was founded by Los Angeles based creators Jo Strettell, a veteran fashion and celebrity makeup artist, and Wendy Polish, a fine art trained designer. These creative industry insiders, and longtime friends, joined forces to create a line of one-of-a-kind candles that allow anyone to bring a beautiful and functional custom work of art into their home.

Each natural soy based candle is individually hand sculpted under water—so no two are ever alike—using an original high temperature technique. This pioneering process, first invented in the late 1960s by Polish’s father and refined over the years by father and daughter, creates distinctive striations of vibrant color, unique sculptural shapes, and sophisticated organic designs. Featuring Polish’s hand mixed colors and Strettell’s custom blended fragrances, these luxury votives burn for up to 80 hours to bring premium, nature inspired ambiance to any room.

Unlike traditional candles, every Le Feu de L’Eau offering is named for its unique hue, rather than its scent. This signature convention celebrates color above all and frees users to discover and explore each fragrance without preconception. Available in 10 stunning colors and scents, find “the fire” that inspires you.

Pure and Clean Skincare from LaBelle

Posted on: May 27th, 2014

LaBelle DAy Spa & Salon

If you have oily and acne prone skin, you won’t want to miss learning about LaBelle’s Purifying Mask and LaBelle’s Instant Blemish Resolve.

Bella Schneider, creator of LaBelle, is known internationally as a product formulator and Crystal Award  Winner as well as starting her first LaBelle Day Spa & Salon in 1976.  Bella is currently  launching her new retail line of leading-edge skincare products.

Labelle’s Purifying Mask is one of them and it is a mask like no other. This is the  perfect remedy for acne and oily prone skin which several members of my family have. Labelle’s purifying Mask can be used several different ways, with fantastic results. The Purifying Mask is like a moisturizer. It is soft and non drying and applied like a moisturizer after cleansing your face in the morning and/or at bedtime. Purifying Mask absorbs excess oil on your skin helping to reduce breakouts. The Beard lichen powder that it contains is a natural alternative to antibiotics and purifies skin. After using Lebelle’s Purifying Mask you will immediately notice dry, soft skin and when used under make-up, which I do, your skin will feel dry all day.

Instant Blemish Resolve with Salicylic Acid

One of my daughters recently requested that I find a facial product which contains Salicylic Acid. Salicylic Acid is used in many acne products to help clear and prevent pimples in acne sufferers.  LaBelle’s Instant Blemish Resolve with Salicylic Acid  was perfect for her. She applies the liquid every night before bed and notices that her breakouts dry up overnight and is really pleased with the results she is getting. According to Labelle, “Instant Blemish Resolve with Salicylic Acid “is the key to a quick cure. Our antibacterial blend is highly potent, yet gentle enough to dab on blemishes morning and night. Treats existing spots and prevents new ones”.

Brush Your Way To Healthy Skin

Posted on: May 19th, 2014

There are many sunscreens and sunblocks on the market today with SPF ranging from 2 to 100. There are also a variety of applications one can use when choosing a sunscreen and sunblock.  There are lotions, sprays, mousses, foams, roll-ons and sticks but did you ever try a brush-on sunscreen?  Well, you can now with Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30. That’s right, sunscreen in the form of a brush on, very clever.  When you try it, you will understand exactly what I mean.

Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 was created by Susan Posnick, Mary Kay’s personal makeup artist, as well as a beauty professional and skincare expert. Having been diagnosed with skin cancer herself in the 1990′s, Susan Posnick researched and developed Brush On Block. Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is designed for the entire family and is very easy to use. It provides instant coverage and is non-irritating to the skin. Because the mineral powder is not absorbed into the skin, it will not clog your pores, so it is ideal to use on your face, especially if you have acne prone skin so teens and young adults will love it.

With a twist of the container, the brush pops up and you can brush the mineral powder onto your skin. When you are finished, and with another simple twist, the brush slides back into place. Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 will fit conveniently in your book bag, sports pack, pocket, even a bike pack. It is so convenient to carry and is extremely clean to use.  Say good bye to messy applications, or greasy residue. With  just a quick “brush on” of this natural mineral powder and you will have the full protection from the sun you are looking for.  You can re-apply as often as you like.

Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 contains the active ingredient titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. It is also important to note that Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30 is sweat and water resistant and comes in a Patent-pending, self dispensing, refillable brush.

You can find Brush On Block Mineral Sunscreen SPF 30  along with refills at and at and brush your way to healthy skin.


Reduce Pain in a Cool way with Skincool Ice Rollers

Posted on: May 15th, 2014
Skincool Ice Roller

Skincool Ice Roller

My Hansderma Skincool Ice Roller could not have come at a better time. I recently had some minor knee surgery and there is an area that I need to ice several times a day. I am having a big problem with ice packs. They are too big for the area that needs icing and they can be very uncomfortable on the skin. The Skincool Ice Roller is perfect because I can roll the chilled roller over an isolated area rather than have an ice pack cover skin that doesn’t need to be iced!  The Skincool Ice Roller allows you to focus on the area that needs icing.

The skincool Ice Roller has so many uses. Try cooling your eyebrows before and/or after plucking, waxing or threading. Let’s face it, dripping ice cubes and face cloths aren’t comfortable. The Skincool Ice Roller works beautifully on insect bits, just roll over the itchy, irritated area for fast relief. I found myself rolling the Skincool Ice Roller over my joints and a few aching muscles and it felt so cool and relaxing.

Another nice feature with the Skincool Ice Roller are the removable rollers. The rollers easily pop on and off for easy freezing and the handle doesn’t need to be chilled which makes rolling comfortable because the handle is at room temperature.

Skincool Ice Rollers are offferd with a plastic roller or stainless steel roller and I have both in the freezer now. I find that the stainless steel roller feels slightly colder but I love both rollers the same.

Skincool Ice rollers can be found at
