When it comes to Valentine's Day, there seems to be 2 thoughts: Love it or Hate it. Either way, what girl doesn't want to look her best as often as she can, right? And Valentine's Day is no exception! With just a little time (like my 8 minute face) and few great products (thanks to The Motherhood), you can look your best this Valentine's Day too.
Sometimes it's the little things that can make a big difference, like your smile. Typically, I don't give much thought to oral hygiene. Brush, Rinse, Floss, repeat - right? But as you age, your teeth and gums change and taking care of them to keep them healthy and white is important. I am a fan of products that I can purchase at my local drug store or all-purpose store, like Target. Easy solutions that I can incorporate into my everyday routines is key.-->
REMBRANDT® DEEPLY WHITE® + Peroxide Fresh Mint Toothpaste removes surface stains and deeply penetrates to visibly whiten teeth inside and out, all while restoring enamel, and that's a really good thing. In fact, it uses the same enamel-safe whitening ingredient that dentists use. That’s definitely something to smile about! And for up-close and personal fresh breath, LISTERINE® ULTRACLEAN® ARCTIC MINT is the only leading mouthwash with an anti-tartar ingredient and new EVERFRESH™ Technology for a dentist clean feeling that lasts up to three times longer versus brushing alone.
I have always been a lotions and potions girl. I started wearing make-up when I was 16 and haven't stopped yet. After all this time, I have narrowed my routine down to about 8-minutes and a few select, favorite products. While my application stays pretty much the same, I am always on the lookout for great new products that can make my "natural" everyday look even easier.
One thing I really struggle with is mascara. Unlike my boys who were both blessed with the longest and thickest eyelashes you've ever seen, my eyelashes are sparse, thin and light. Ugh. I have tried hundreds of mascaras in all price ranges, and none them make a startling difference. So I have resigned myself to finding a great, reasonably priced mascara that makes my eyelashes look better, but natural. This
--> NEUTROGENA® Healthy Volume® Mascara went on great and made my eyelashes look totally natural. -->The Visible Volume Brush coats and builds even the smallest lashes with rich, volume-building color. No clumps, smudging or flaking, and that's a total win in my beauty book!
I didn't love the color of the
--> NEUTROGENA® MoistureSmooth Color Stick when I first applied it, but I love how it feels. So I wiped it off, applied my current favorite lip liner, and then used the color stick on top - perfect! It gave me just the right amount of moisture and shine without the tackiness of a gloss. --> Made with fruit extracts along with mango and shea butter, the balm-like formula glides on easily, providing a sheer wash of moisturizing color that lasts for hours. I will definitely be looking for more colors of the NEUTROGENA® Color Stick. It's also super handy to carry in your purse or pocket for on-the-go touch ups!
