My skin is in hyper-drive with pigmentation already this season! I'm NEVER going to make it through T-Ball if I don't do something now!
So I whipped out my ol' favorite from last summer, the REN Glycolactic Skin Renewal Peel Mask. You apply to clean skin, leave on for ten minutes, and wipe away with a warm washcloth. It is the perfect time to use it since I have Gabe in the tub trying his new "Squishy Baff." I swear, my kids like their "as seen on TV" stuff as much as their mama!! Hahaha!
What I like most about the REN product is that it is free of pretty much anything chemically-based, but works as well, if not better, than most other peels I've tried. It is a little goopy, kind of like orange pulp in a gel and it tingles a tiny bit, but it doesn't burn at all.
Best of all, it really smoothes things out, texture wise. My pigmentation isn't gone yet, obviously, but this is a once-a-week product, so I am going to do this for at least a month to see if I get some good color movement! Also, I will be slathering on my SPF 50 every morning starting TOMORROW!!!!
Cheers to breaking out the peels for summer!
I decided to go almost-all-out on my DIY-mani this weekend! Normally I remove whatever old color is left on my nails, swipe on a new coat of polish and I'm done.
Friday I removed my old polish then gently shaped with a fine-grain file. Then I applied a coat of OPI Chip Skip. This cleans and preps the nail plate for optimum adherence! Next I applied one coat of CND Stickey base coat, followed by two thin coats of OPI Fit for a Queensland.
After letting those thin, if multiple, coats dry for about an hour, I finished my fine-looking fingers off with a splash of OPI Top Coat.
Then tried not to touch anything for fifteen hours.....haha! Guess who gobbered up one thumb immediately?! Yup. Eh, whatevs!
So far, the weekend has been a completely busy, all-hands -on-everything sorta thing, and I haven't ever seen my mani hold up better! Yay for the proper P to the REP!
Three days into a proper prep! With OPI Fit for a Queensland color.
Tomorrow I will add one thin coat of OPI Top Coat again to help maintain this ol' girl! I'm gonna try for a whole week of pretty hands!
Cheers to taking your time, every once in a while!
This time of year I like to try to break outta my nude-lip shell! It's the perfect opportunity to hook it up with some pink, baby!
This beauty is from diego dalla palma. Made in Italy, its claim to fame is that its "uniform release of colour gives a velvety, comfortable and moisturising effect with an anti aging action." This shade 29 is the best mix of soft, creamy, moist, rich, semi-matte, semi-hot pink I've probably ever used! Haha! It feels super smooth and just looks so hot! Yea!
I received this as a delicious sample from Sample Society by Beauty Bar. I am psyched that Spring is here and it is now perfectly acceptable to indulge in my newest, hot-pink lip fetish!!!
