Reviva High Potency Elastin Serum Giveaway




As I've gotten older I've noticed the one skin problem that is really starting to irritate me. It's me losing my skin firmness.  Wrinkles and crow's feet are easily dealt with by botox.  Firmness is something that you can get rid of as easy, so that's why I've been on the search for the perfect product to firm up the bottom of my face. 

As you get older your skin starts to sag  , and lose it's "oomph" especially around your chin and mouth.  This is called Elastin.  Your skin starts to drag from the sun, high temperatures, stress, tobacco, booze and many other factors. It's a known fact that all the sagging starts around your jawline to your throat.  I've been praying that the doctors come out with a type of botox that helps with firmness. Last time I went to the surgeon's office, they told me there IS a type of firming procedure that can be done but its about two thousand dollars. Eeck.

Reviva is one of my favorite skin care companies.  Their prices are extremely affordable and the quality from what I've seen so far is pretty amazing. I've reviewed several of their products in the past, and when my current "problem"  I knew their High Potency Elastin Serum was something I was interested in.

Another interesting fact... did you know you can tell someone's age by looking at their hands? It's really true too! Look at a woman who maybe looks younger or even older then she really is. If you look at her HANDS, it tells all.  Reviva's High Potency Elastin Serum can also be used on the back of the hands to tighten the look.  Do you know anyone that wants bony hands? I sure don't.

Reviva's High Potency Elastin Serum is available on their website for $27.  Finally a serum I can afford that works and doesn't break the bank.

But if you still don't want to purchase this serum, we are giving one Bella's Beauty Spot reader the chance to win a full sized bottle of the Elastin Serum. To enter, fill out the form below, and Good Luck!! USA only.

Currently Loving: Drybar

 
This past weekend I had extensions put in my hair by my sweet cousin and I love them.  Shout out to Lionesse Beauty for sending me the 100% human hair extensions. They are super soft and are just like my normal hair.  But it took me almost 3 hours to blow dry and I can only imagine how long it's going to take to curl.  So yes long hair is a major pain in the butt, but it's so fun to run my hands through my hair and feel soft locks.  Another bad part is the long hair hitting  the back of my neck.  Nothing like hair on your skin leaving you super sweaty.
So having long hair that's sooo long and never having it before makes me want to have all the cool hairstyles I could never do when I had shorter hair.  The last couple days I've just been wearing it long, and when you're wearing your hair just "down" you want some texture. And I think I found the perfect hair product for the best texture.

 Dry Bar has an amazing hair product called, Mai Tai Spritzer Salt Sea Spray.  This is the perfect product for your hair, especially having extensions, you get that sexy beach look without doing anything except applying a couple sprays, then boom you're good to go.   It's made with real Sea Salt so you really do get the feel you're on the beach with soft waves blowing in the ocean breeze.  This has been my favorite go to product this summer for a quick pick me up. Now that I have long hair, I've been trying to create that beachy look that is so popular now.  Just spray about 5 or 6 sprays on dry hair and mess it up a little bit and you create a look without the look of actually trying to do your hair.   I've always heard about Drybar products and how popular they are, but I didn't understand the craze till now.  This is perfect for gals with wavy frizzy hair like mine that never know what to do with their hair and don't want to apply heat to just make the problem worse. Sometimes you just don't want to curl or straighten your hair not only for time purposes but just all the damage it creates.

So do I love Drybar? I'm totally obsessed. The way the Mai Tai Spritzer textures my new hair and extensions is incredible and I recommend this for people with dull boring hair. People that need a little bit of a "kick" in their hair.  Make your hair look sexy wavy and just more gorgeous.

Drybar Mai Tai Sea Salt Spray is available for $25 on Drybar's website.
And if you're interested in purchasing hair extensions, Lionesse Micro Bead Extensions will be up on their site soon at Lionesse Beauty.

10 Uses for Argan Oil + Giveaway!!! (Ends 8-11)



Argan Oil is the newest must have beauty product in the year 2014. I can happily say I have at least 4 bottles of pure argan oil in my bathroom, just in case for backup.  Argan Oil has become so popular because like coconut oil, it has many uses.   It has the name "Liquid Gold" for the following  reasons:


1.) Skin Moisturizer- Argan Oil contains Vitamin E which gives your skin a moisturizing boost.  I like to apply Argan Oil all over my skin and face at night because I have extremely dry skin. (As most of you know)  My skin is so dry it will flake at night, due to some sort of skin disorder I have or excema. Many skin moisturizers will irritate my skin, especially my face, but Argan Oil is so natural that it just leaves your skin feeling soft like a baby. A little goes a LONG way, if you use to much you don't want to look like a grease face, so just one little drop will last you the entire night.

2) Wrinkles-  Argan Oil has been known to reduce the signs of aging such as wrinkles and loss of skin firmness. It leaves your face feeling plump and restores elasticity to those vital spots that you need that extra "umph"




3) Pregnancy- Argan Oil works great for potential stretch marks. In order to keep stretch marks away, you have to keep that area around your belly really "greased up" Argan Oil, if used enough can help eliminate cellulite and stretch marks if used at least twice a day. I used it several times when I was pregnant, and I have not one stretch mark. Hooray!

4) Hair Probably Argan Oil's BEST and most important use is how it helps your hair in every aspect. It keeps your scalp healthy and fresh. If you take the oil and spread it all over your scalp, leave overnight then rinse you are left with a moisturized perfect scalp.  It also helps fight the frizz. Apply a little bit of Argan Oil in the palm of your hand AFTER you blow dry, and you can tame your hair.   Works great for split ends too.


5) Nail Cuticles- This is my #1 Argan Oil must.  I take a little bit each night before I go to bed, and just apply it to my cuticles and inside, around my nails. It helps them grow stronger and easier, and gets rid of all hangnails. I have a habit of chewing my nails, and around them, so the argan oil repairs what I mess up. Using it on your toenails is also awesome too.

6) Healing-  If you have a bruise, scar or some type of skin issue, Argan Oil is great for repairing. Especially scars. Yes you could pay $20 for a bottle of Mederma, (which never worked for me) or you can use Argan Oil, and watch your scar fade.  If you have arthritis or joint pain, Argan Oil can be rubbed on to the area and  it is known to improve the look of the skin AND the pain.

7) Digestion - Argan Oil is "said" to help people with constant indigestion.  It contains flavanoids, an anti-oxidant which reduces the inflammation both internally and externally. Bet ya didn't know that!

8) Facial Acne-  The Vitamin E helps reduce the look and the actual growth of pimples in the skin. But you have to be careful, if you have greasy skin, too much oil can make a problem worse. So just a drop of Argan Oil in the trouble area can significantly decrease the look and feel of facial AND body acne.

9) Helps your skin "Glow"- This is a tip I read on a couple different website that I actually didn't know about. Take a drip of your favorite Argan Oil, mix it with your favorite facial cream, apply at night and the next day your skin will GLOW. I can't wait to try this. I will keep you updated and let you know if it works. Who doesn't want glowing skin?

10) Lowers Cholesterol-  Argan Oil contains plant sterols, something found in vegetable oil, (it gets a bit complex when talking about ingredients) but all you need to know  is just a LITTLE bit can help people with high cholesterol and get you in better shape. How cool is that?




So with so many brand of oil, which one do you choose? Pro-Naturals is one of my absolute favorites. Not only is it one of the more affordable choices, but you get  a nice large bottle of 100% pure Argan Oil.  A lot of times you will purchase something that is not completely natural, or mixed with other things, but Pro-Naturals has a great return policy, and quick and easy shipping.

Pro-Naturals is an Argan Oil that prides itself on being a "Hair Repair Treatment" 

Leave-in treatment gently smooths the cuticles and helps fortify hair that is prone to breaking and split ends.

Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion for tired Legs



Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Lotion that is perfect for summer. The cooling formula has purifying mint and lemon to revive and refreshes tired and legs so you can bare your stems in confidence.


 


When I first catch sight of the bottle I'm drawn to the old fashioned lettering and the black and white  pictures that seem forever ago. Reminds me of some sort of vintage portrait, so to me, that's a clever packaging idea. I'm sure many of you can't see the fine print on this lotion bottle, but it actually says, "Hiker's Leg Healer".  So although fragrance reminds me of just a luxury lotion for your arms, legs and hands, it's really meant for people that have tired aching legs, and/or feet.


Le Couvent des Minimes Leg Soothing Lotion: Revive and refresh tired and dry legs with this comforting formula. Grapeseed Oil and Shea Butter deeply hydrates and repairs skin, while Ivy, Red Vine, Cypress, and Spearmint help to reactivate microcirculation. Purifying Alpine Mint, Lemon, and Listea Cubeba provide a delicate fresh scent.

The key scents here are Lemon and Mint and when I say Lemon and Mint, I mean WHOA. Lemon and Mint to a total extreme. So if you hate either smell I would say no way is this for you.  It smells exactly like the mint leaves you would put in a cup of tea. So once you apply this all over your legs and feet, you get a bit of a tingly sensation and then a relaxing feeling takes over, just like I'm at the spa. I would recommend this specific lotion to anyone who is on their feet all day, maybe standing or walking. Someone that runs or jogs a lot or does  heavy leg workouts will also love this lotion.  If you know someone that has leg issues, or joint pain, this would be the perfect gift, even for Christmas. (Yes it's not too early to think about christmas gifts!)


Thanks to its Original Recipe combining nine plants carefully selected for their known beneficial properties:

Leg Soothing Lotion
Reactivates the micro-circulation 
Revives and refreshes tired legs
 Leaves a fresh scent on the skin 


I plan on running a marathon at one point in my life, and when I finally get there, I will want the Le Couvent  des Minimes soothing lotion right afterwards.  Another fabulous idea is applying this all over your body before bedtime. The mint smell relaxes you and helps you sleep. My husband loved the smell! The Leg Soothing Lotion sells for $25.00 for a 4.8 bottle. Where to find: usa.lecouventdesminimes.com
