The long awaited post about THE MAKEUP SHOW !

I know, I know,..... it's been forever since my last post, and I could make excuses and say " a cross country move, a breakup, another move, (not necessarily in that order)...sometimes life gets in the way".....
but truth be told, I got sooooo much loot at the makeup show that I wanted to be able to actually use it, and not just on myself, but on my clients, so that when I spoke to you about it, I'd actually have something to say.

So without further adieu, I give you ..... The Makeup Show LA Bloggger Bag

There was so much in this "goodie bag" that I almost don't know where to start.
 I have a few favorites that I could go on and on about so I'll leave those for last. I will say this, there are some things that I selfishly will keep in my own makeup bag that my pro-kit will never know about!!!

Burt's Bees Intense Hydration


My latest buzz kit was Burt's Bees Intense Hydration products. I received 3 full size products; Cream Cleanser, Treatment Mask, and Night Cream with Clary Sage, a remarkable botanical that thrives in its harsh environment because of its ability to retain moisture.

With the colder months approaching, it's important for your skin to stay hydrated so I was excited to try these products.



The Cream Cleanser ($10) is amazing ! After using a wash cloth to massage is in, I was surprised to see how it literally melted off my makeup! I decided to do a little experiment... The next time I washed my face I used my regular gel cleanser , I always thought it was doing a good enough job of getting my makeup off. Then I used the Burt's Bees cream cleanser after my gel cleanser and once again, a wash cloth full of makeup - gross! I couldn't believe it, not only was my other cleanser not removing my makeup, but it was stripping my skin of the natural oils it needs to stay lubricated.




The Treatment Mask ($18) was next. I applied a thick layer and relaxed for 10 minutes while it worked it's magic. I removed it with a tissue, then massaged the remaining product into my skin like the package instructed. To be honest, there was a lot of residue left over, so maybe removing with a wash cloth would be better.






I finished off with the Night Cream ($18) by smoothing it all over my face and neck. I can't even explain how great my skin feels. It's so soft, I can't stop touching it!



I would definitely recommend these products to my friends and clients as proof that you don't need to spend a bundle to make your skin feel like a million bucks.

My 4 favorite products and the cheat sheet to the ZenMed Giveaway.

This is my quick introduction to the ZenMed Skincare Collection and Giveaway, and my top four products.
 Because that's how many you will get, if you win my Giveaway!
(Which let me tell ya, it's not  easy to narrow down.)

So I'm here to help you "navigate" your way  a little.  in other words, a Cheat Sheet.  The more I use this the more I fall in love with it!  I want to order their HD Powder by the trunk full! It is so fine milled that it literally makes me look photo shopped.  oh, and i had a really embarrassing realization...

Turns out I really dig BB cream now. I'm almost embarrassed to say this because I spent so many years thinking it was just a so so tinted moisturizer. Or maybe it's just this Complexion Perfection, but this is kind of the bomb! I have seriously been wearing this every day and i swear my skin looks younger and lighter without all that heavy foundation. (not that mine was ever "heavy" errrherm. !. ) but it's just nice…

This is what Natural feels like

A sneak peek for what's coming up.....
