My February Birchbox

My February Birchbox

Hi ladies! I’m sharing my February Birchbox today. This month was one of my favorite boxes! In case you’re wondering, everyone does not receive the same thing in their boxes.

Birchbox sent out over sixty different products during the month of February. I love that these products are geared toward my age.

These are products I would love to try but couldn’t afford to buy each one. I can sample them and if I like a product, I can purchase it from Birchbox. If you purchase any of these during the month of February, the shipping is free!

StriVectin-SD Intensive Concentrate Review & Giveaway

Strivectin-SD-Intensive Concentrate for Marks & Wrinkles

I was recently asked to try StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles.

As a woman in her forties, I’m always looking for skin care products that will help with wrinkles and signs of aging. It’s important to me to use products that help with my aging skin. Having a good skin care regimen has been a priority for me since I was in my early twenties. I knew that taking care of my skin in my 20s and 30s would help my skin look and feel better as I began my 40s and beyond.

I know wrinkles are inevitable but it’s important to use a product that smooths fine lines and helps improve the texture of my skin.

StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles has potent collagen-boosting peptides and has re-engineered the formula with NIA-114 technology. NIA-114 accelerates the rebuilding of skin layers. StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles can be used AM and PM. When applying to stretch marks, massage gently into the targeted area. For wrinkles, apply all-over cleansed face, massaging into wrinkle prone areas.

I’ve been using StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles on my face for almost two weeks, and I’ve noticed the texture of my skin has looked better and it has not felt as dry even during these winter months. I have noticed some of my age spots seem to be fading, too. I love the way StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles feels on my face. I can’t wait to see the difference in my skin after 8 weeks!

Here’s a look at what StriVectin-SD™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles can do over an 8 week period.

After Week 2:

  • Natural collagen resurging; texture and resilience improving.

After Week 4:

  • Natural cell turnover intensifying; visibly fading discolorations.

After Week 8:

  • Elasticity reinforcing; wrinkles and stretch marks visibly diminishing.

I do think it’s important to start using a good skin care regimen like StriVectin-SD™™ Intensive Concentrate for Stretch Marks & Wrinkles as early as possible. But I’m glad that as my skin ages I can incorporate this into my skin care regimen. It’s never too late to start!

Day {9} Skincare: Fashion & Beauty For Women Over 40

I think most of us want to look and feel our best and skincare is an important part of our daily routine. We could spend days on skincare and everyone seems to have a different opinion on which products work and which products we should use.

We’re going to keep it simple and talk about a 3 step program and I’ll share the products I’m using right now. I don’t think we have to spend a fortune to have great skin.

1. Cleanse-Obviously, we need to cleanse our skin morning and night. We want to get rid of makeup and other things that clog our pores. Olay has great cleansers that you can pick up at your local drugstore.

2.Exfoliate-As we age, our skin tone can become rough, uneven and blotchy. We need to regularly exfoliate our skin to help keep it looking fresh and smooth. I use Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant. I love the way it makes my face feel!

3. Moisturize-We need to add moisture to our skin to help plump up our skin. I moisturize morning and night. I’m using Olay Regenerist micro-sculpting cream in the morning and Regenerist Night Recovery cream at night.

For my eye area I use my moisturizer in the morning. At night I use Olay Regenerist intensive repair treatment around my eyes and I use it on my neck too. Don’t over moisturize your eye area in the morning because it will make your eyeshadow and eyeliner smudge.

I’d love to hear what products you use! Do you think you have to spend a fortune to have great skin?

If you’d like to follow me in some other areas, I’m on PINTEREST and you can see all the things I love. Also, chat with me on my FACEBOOK page, it’s a great way to connect with me and ask me any questions you might have. If you want to see pictures of my day to day stuff, follow me on INSTAGRAM!

This is Day 9 in my 31 day series of Fashion & Beauty for Women over 40. If you’d like to start from the beginning you can go here!

Beauty For the Heart~~The Lord make his face shine on you, and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace. Numbers 6:25-26

Have a blessed day!

My Review of Garnier BB Cream

Well, it’s no secret that BB cream is a hot product these days and Garnier has one called, Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream.

BB Cream stands for Beauty Balm or Blemish Balm.

 In case you don’t know what all the fuss is about, here’s the down low.

It’s a new idea in skincare. BB creams are multi-taskers that combine skincare ingredients with moisturizer, primer, foundation and SPF.

They became wildly popular in Korea when a famous Korean actress credited BB cream for her flawless complexion. The Korean formulas are a bit more opaque with cooler undertones because in Asia they like the flawless porcelain skin.

The Western formulas that we use give a more glowing-with-health-skin. They’re somewhere between a tinted moisturizer and a medium coverage foundation.

I had not talked about the BB creams because I hadn’t tried one but I finally broke down and bought the Garnier BB cream. You can purchase Garnier BB cream at drugstores, Wal-Mart and some grocery stores for around $13.

Here’s what I like about the BB cream:

  • I love the feel and flawless finish.
  • If you like light coverage this is perfect!
  • It goes on very easy and diminishes fine lines and wrinkles.
  • It gives a radiant and healthy glow!

The down side:

  • If you have oily skin it may feel too oily.
  • I use a finishing powder to give it a matte finish.
  • If you like a full coverage foundation this will be too sheer for you.

Because I love you guys, I’m showing a before and after picture.

Yikes! As you can see I need foundation!

The Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, evens out my skin tone and gives it a much healthier and flawless finish without looking like I have a ton of makeup on.

Garnier offers two shades: Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, Light and medium, 2.5 Fluid Ounce and Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream, Medium and Deep, 2.5 Fluid Ounce. I’m using the medium/deep.

How to apply:

Place dots of the product on your face and gently rub in to your skin. If you have areas that need more product, add more BB cream to that area. (I use my Mary Kay Day Solution and eye cream but no moisturizer before applying the BB cream.)

Have you tried Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector B.B. Cream? What are your thoughts?
