Ole Henriksen

I love this man!  I don’t know who he is personally, but his products are amazing!  I have written before about the power peel microdermabrasion that I absolutely love. Well now I have finally decided to buy a few more products of his to try!

I got the 3 Little Wonders kit from Sephora a couple of weeks ago and have been hooked since I first tried it!  When you buy this set you get Truth Serum Collagen Booster, Sheer Transformation, and Invigorating Night Treatment.

I use the Collagen a booster in the morning after I get out of the shower.  Once it has soaked all the way into my skin, I then use the Sheer Transformation lotion on top as my daily lotion.  The Vitamin C Lotion smells A M A Z I N G.  It is like putting fresh peeled oranges on your face.  

At night I use the Night Treatment and then again after it has soaked into my skin I use the Sheer Transformation lotion.  I can actually feel the Night Treatment tightening my skin as soon as I put it on.

Together all of these products have been great for my skin.  I feel like my skin tone is a lot more even then before I started and I have also started to notice that my forehead wrinkles are not as prominent and are a lot softer!

The 1st pic was about 3 weeks ago and the 2nd pic was this morning.  Please disregard my very crooked nose… I know it is probably hard for you to actually see all the results that I am talking about, but I can tell (and that is all that really matters)!  I read a bunch of the reviews online before and I went and bought this set and most of them were very positive and said something very similar to what I have said.  Overall I think these products are worth it.  I still have months worth of product left to use and I can’t wait to see if the results will continue to get better!

Brighter Skin, Brighter You

Like any other girl out there, I am always looking for the next best thing that will help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, freshen up my skin, and give me that overall youthful glow.  Although I am only 30, I like to take the proactive approach and start doing these things before it is too late!  Below are my go to products that I could not live without!


Peels

When it comes to choosing any kind of peel for your skin, you should always test a small portion of your skin at first.  I have had some friends that have had some serious reactions to acid peels.  If you have sensitive skin, you may need to take a different approach.

I don’t have sensitive skin, so I use all kinds of different peels on my skin.

Ole Henriksen Power Peel 

This is probably the most powerful peel that I have used outside of a spa.  There is a 3 step process to this power peel.  

  • Step 1 exfoliate with an almond scrub.  This takes off all the dead skin cells, exfoliates and opens up all of your pores.  This step alone is amazing.  My face feels so much fresher after this step.
  • Step 2 is the lemon acid peel.  I am not going to lie.  THIS PART BURNS.  Your pores are open and you are basically putting lemon juice on your skin.  You have to leave this on for a couple of minutes.  Try to make it the whole time if possible!  I turned on my blow dryer on cool and blew it on my face to help alleviate some of the stinging.
  • Step 3 is a chamomile lotion that goes directly on top of the lemon peel.  This step feels amazing!  I could not get this lotion on quick enough!  After a few more minutes of letting it set, you can rinse it all off. 

Overall this peel was great.  My face was a little red immediately after, but it went away after about 3o minutes.  My skin felt so smooth and clean after all was said and done.  I have used this peel multiple times, so obviously it is not that uncomfortable!

Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel

This is almost more of a cleanser than a peel.  You simply rub it all over you face and it peels off all your dead skin cells.  Then you rinse it all off.  The results leave your skin silky smooth.  There is no irritation to this gel at all.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Alpha Beta Peel

This is by far my favorite peel.  I actually bought the 30 pack after I initially tried it.  I have tried the extra strength peels (since I am not as sensitive).  This comes in a 2 step process.  There is an alpha wipe and a beta wipe.  

  • First you rub the alpha wipe all over you clean face.  I rub it in until the cloth is pretty dry (2-3 minutes) and then I let it set on my face for another 5-10 minutes.
  • The beta peel goes on the same way.  You will wipe the beta cloth all over you face again until the cloth is dry.  After you are done you DO NOT wash your face.

I love to use this peel when my face feels a little more oily or when I feel like I might be getting a breakout.  I have literally felt a pimple coming on my chin, use this peel and then woke up the next morning with nothing there! I highly recommend these!


Masks

I am all about sheet masks.  They are easy to put on, stay in place and give you results!  If you haven’t tried one then you are seriously missing out.

Karuna Brightening Face Mask

Karuna has a great line of products.  I have used their anti-aging masks, their hydrating masks and of course their Brightening masks.  You can’t go wrong with these one time use masks.  They are perfect for perking up your skin and giving you the results that you are looking for.

Dr. Jart Water Full Hydrogel Mask

I like to stick this mask in the Fridge for a little bit before I put it on my face.  This is the best hydrating mask that I have used so far.  When you take it out of the package the gel is dripping from the mask (that’s how much is on there)!  I will wear this mask for about 45 minutes and let as much of the liquid soak into my skin before I take it off.  When I wake up the morning after using this mask you can see a clear difference in how dewy your skin it!  I LOVE IT!

Miss Spa Deep Wrinkle Hydrogel Eye Treatment

I like to use these in conjunction with my under eye creams.  I like to use these (even thought I don’t have deep wrinkles) because I feel like these are more hydrating.  They stick right onto the skin, but I have found for best results you should lay down while wearing them so they do not slip!


Lotions

Countertime Vibrant Eye Perfector

I cannot say enough good things about this eye cream.  Since I had my daughter I have dark circles under my eye.  It probably has something to do with the lack of sleep or the amount of stress that I now have, but I could not figure out how to cover them.  I got a sample of this product from my friend and was immediately hooked.  After the first night of using it I could literally see a difference the next morning.  My eyes were not as puffy or as dark.  The more I have used it the better the results.  I honestly can tell when I don’t use this product, so I use it E V E R Y night!  A must have in your beauty repertoire! 

St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer

This is by far the best bang for your buck.  I have been using this face lotion for about 3 years now and I absolutely love it!  This tub will last me about 10 months!  This is a very lightweight lotion that is not oily.  You can actually feel this lotion soak into your skin.  This is my everyday lotion.  There are times when I use thicker lotions (at night) or lotions that have SPF in them when I know I will be outside a lot, but I always come back to this one.


Although these are my favorites, they may not be yours.  Sometimes you just have to try things until you find what works for you.  I literally am obsessed with all types of beauty products so I would love to hear what works best for you!

Have a B E A U T Y -ful day!

Love,

Bri

Amazon Reviewer

There is this thing called Amazon Reviewer.  I had never heard about it until a couple of months ago.  A friend of mine was trying it out and was obsessed.  She tried to get me to try it as well, but I thought it sounded kind of sketchy…

Well after about 2 months and seeing all the free stuff she was getting I was kind of intrigued and sort of jealous.  So I went to Amazon Reviewer and decided to sign up.  I mean who doesn’t love free stuff?

So I have been on this reviewer site for about 3 months now and I have everyone at my work on it as well.  This really only works if you have Amazon Prime (get it if you don’t have it).  You go “shop” through their 1000’s of items until you find something that you like.  Then you click review now.  They will then send you a code to go buy it from Amazon, and then it is shipped to you.  Once you receive your product you have 2 weeks to write a review on it (Good or bad).  It is as simple as that.

Now this site has all kinds of items that you can get at a huge discount and even for free and all you have to do it sort for what you want!  I only sorted through the free stuff because I didn’t need anything bad enough that I wanted to pay for it.  So far I have about 60 products that I have gotten and I have probably paid about $3 total for all of them!  ::I know what you are thinking::  There has to be a catch.  She can’t get all that stuff for only $3.  Well let me tell you something… I CAN AND I DID!

So what kind of products have I received?  Well I have about 20 different phone cases for me and my husband.  I got tempered glass for our iPhones.  Screen protectors for my apple watch.  Vitamins. Face Lotions.  Organic makeup remover cloths. Essential Oils. Diffusers. Clothes Steams. Etc. Etc. Etc.  You get the point.  There is a lot you can get.  If you think I am kidding and you don’t believe me, then go look for yourself.

Go get something for F R E E.  You deserve it!

Love,
