*Partnered Post* Revitalize from the inside out with Imedeen®

Imedeen Time Perfection 195x300 *Partnered Post* Revitalize from the inside out with Imedeen® We’re well into our new year and some of us may have already started to slip in our resolutions (*I’m looking at you inbox). But others we are are sticking to pretty firmly – like taking care of ourselves. For me, this means continuing to take my Imedeen Time Perfection® anti-aging supplements.

Now, I didn’t continue these pills out of habit, even tho it did become part of my nightly ritual, for sure. I kept taking them because I was actually seeing, and feeling, a difference in my aging skin – and not just on my face, but over my whole body. See, Imedeen® works down in the dermal layers of the skin, where there is collagen, to strengthen and improve the skin’s invisible building blocks through targeted nutrients that help skin retain moisture and suppleness, not just on the surface like a lot of other skin care products. That’s not just targeted to my facial skin, that’s all over.

So, I’m going to continue to take them, as I can definitely use more Vitamin C and LycoPhence GS® in my lifestyle (*which Imedeen® contains) to help build up collagen and to protect my skin from oxidative damage. What about you? Do you think you could use some more in your routine? While you ponder that, go check out the Lifestyle Skin Assessment and see which Imedeen® product is right for you. Then, come back here and enter to win a 90-day supply of Imedeen Time Perfection® by telling me why you want to try it in the comments and by liking the Older Girl Beauty Facebook page, too (*US residents only.) – Don’t forget to mark your entries in the Rafflecopter widget for them to count! If you don’t want to wait to see if you have won, you can always head over to the Imedeen® shop and go ahead and pick some up now.

This week Helen, from Lola’s Secret Beauty Blog, was dropped off on the Beauty Spotlight Team Desert Island, and was only permitted to bring 12 beauty products. Given her proclivity for skincare products these restrictions presented quite a challenge, and narrowing down her choices to a mere dozes was no small feat. Can you guess what she brought with her?

*Partnered Post* Self-Tanners and Jergens Natural Glow

jergens natural glow line *Partnered Post* Self Tanners and Jergens Natural Glow Guys, I have partnered with Jergens to try out their new gradual self-tanner moisturizers, the Natural Glow line. I’m not really good with the quick self-tanners, but with my sun aversion prone body, I need to get some color on my skin so my Casper white legs aren’t *too* much of a distraction when I’m trying to rock some skirts or shorts this Spring.

Now, I’ve had some bad experiences with self-tanners before, which made me leery of them for a long time. Here, watch this video – I explain all about my worst mishap with a bottle and brush I got from TV:

Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year

In this edition of “Makeup Wars”, we take on the Pantone Color of the Year – “Emerald Green”. Now, I don’t think they want you to have everything in only that shade, more like use that as a starting point to incorporating it into your lifestyle. So, I try to think how I bring green into my life and it’s obvious right off the bat – eyeliner! (*I’m pretty sure we all remember that I may have a bit of an eyeliner problem. RIP bags.) Actually, this is a good way for anyone that wants to bring in greens to their routines, without going full on green eyeshadows, because not everyone is comfy doing that. Eyeliners gives you a bit of color that works with both neutrals and different jewel tones. Here are a few that I have in my bag:

Green Eyeliners Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the YearGreen Eyeliner Swatches Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year

  • Rimmel London Soft Kohl in “Jungle Green” – This drugstore goodie just *glides* on and the color is clearly bright; it was a heck of a deal for $1.99.
  • Ruby Kisses 24HR Eye Define in “Rich Teal Blue” – Okay, I’m stretching on this one, but this is a green teal, which does skew blue, but I think it pulls more green out on me, so I included it. So there. icon wink Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year
  • Mally Beauty Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Eyeliner in “Caribbean Sea” – This was actually the first Mally eyeliner I tried and it sold me instantly. The fact that it is a bright green that I double up with browns and purples with ease is why I keep it in fast rotation.
  • tarte emphasEYES gel liner in “Green” – This is a green with gold in it, so it just shimmers!
  • Lancome Ink Artliner in “Pop Petrol” – This was a LE from the UK that I snagged in a swap – it was the *entire* reason I wanted to swap – the color had me from first glimpse. They have a really pretty “Emerald Seductive” color that looks really pretty here in the US.
  • Another way you can bring green into your beauty life is by putting green polish on your tips and toes. Luckily there is so many options when it comes to green polishes you can go as bright or as dark as you like, glitter or pastel, it’s all up to you. And if you wanna be business on your nails, but party on your toes, using complementary colors but different finishes is an easy way to mix it up. Here are a few greens that I’ve got:

    Green Polishes Makeup Wars: Green is the Color of the Year

  • Zoya Polish in “Codie” – This totally doesn’t look like the image on the page, my “subtle olive undertones” are distinct dark green khaki to me.
  • Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in “Sea” – This pastel green is just right for the upcoming Easter holidays, and on into the rest of Spring.
  • Sinful Colors in “San Francisco” – I can’t find this one on their site, but it looks a lot like “Nail Junkie”, but they have a bunch of different greens to try.
  • China Glaze Polish in “Agro” – This was part of the LE “Capitol Colours” collection that tied to the “Hunger Games” movie.
  • Maybelline Color Show in “Tenacious Teal” – This creamy green is deeper than a pastel, but not a full on Emerald green.
  • How are you going to bring green into your routine this year? Let me know and after that, go check out how the other lovelies are using green in their life:
