Pledge to “Fight The Powder” with Mally Beauty

You guys know I have been PREACHING to you about the wonders of the Mally Beauty Poreless Face Defender for almost 2 years now. And I’ve convinced several of you (*Retrodiva) to give up the powder and make the switch. But for those of you that are still on the fence about it (*how could you be?!?), I have a couple of opportunities for you to try to check it out.

For those of you lovelies in NYC on Tuesday, May 8th, Mally and her “Fight The Powder” team will be outside Grand Central Station during rush hour (6:30AM – 9:30AM and 4pm – 7pm) to give the first 50 women who take the pledge to give up their powder a Face Defender, with a pink mirror that has a QR code that will link to a video with exclusive tips & discounts from Mally.

And for those of you not in NYC, you can sign the pledge on the Mally Beauty Facebook page for a chance to be one of 10 weekly winners of a Face Defender, and maybe even the Grand Prize winner of a 30min Skype session with Mally & the products she rec’s for the winner in the chat. (*This promotion goes on until June 7th).

So, have I convinced you to make the switch? I would love to know if you have or if you are going to make the pledge.

Beauty Spotlight “What’s in my…” – My Mom’s Turn

In honor of Mother’s Day in the US next weekend, I thought I would give you a peek into my lovely Momma’s bathroom cabinet. As you can see, there are many MANY brands that are available on QVC – my mom is the one that introduced me to my dirty little secret the shopping channel.

Some of her favorites, including some not purchased from the tv, are:

  • Dr. Denese SPF 30 Defense Day Cream
  • Philosphy “Amazing Grace” Spritz, but really anything in that scent
  • Elizabeth Arden “Red Door” – this has been her go to scent for I don’t know how many years now
  • RoC Skincare Deep Wrinkle Serum
  • Laura Geller Tinted Under Make-Up Primer, and she also loves the Balance N Brighten, too (*not shown)
  • Lierac Gentle Cleansing Water No-Rinse Formula for Face and Eyes (*no longer available, but now she keeps sneaking peeks at my new “Velvet Cleanser”)
  • Philosphy “The Oxygen Peel”
  • Kate Somerville Quench Hydrating Face Serum (*pretty sure this was my bottle that Mom swiped after she finished hers)
  • I would like to point out the DIY pencil/brush holder I made for my mom with beads and a rectangle vase from Hobby Lobby. My mom has neuropathy in her hands, so it is very difficult for her to pick small things up off of flat surfaces. This holder makes it so much easier for her to grab her brushes and her eye products, as she is NOT giving any of those up. Especially these:

  • RevitaBrow – (*remember when I told you about my mom and RevitaBrow?)
  • Laura Geller Brow Marker
  • Smashbox Brow Tech To Go
  • Mally Beauty Automatic Eyeliner in “Black Cherry” (*of COURSE there is Mally in there, and I was *wondering* where that color went…)
  • So, I don’t think it is too hard to figure out where I get my love of beauty products (and QVC), do you? Tell me – do you get your love of beauty from your Momma, or has she picked up a few tricks from you?

    Foreign Beauty Friday: Skinfood Lettuce & Cucumber Water Drop Essence

    *I am lucky enough to know people overseas that send me things. I also have friends and family that travel, so I harrass them make sure they bring me back goodies.

    My BFF brought me back this Skinfood “Lettuce & Cucumber Water Drop Essence” from Korea. This brand has been around since 1957 with their natural line of products based on fruits and vegetables, basically. It didn’t seem that odd to me, as I had used the Burt’s Bees Wild Lettuce Complexion Soap a few years ago, before it was discontinued. (*shakes fist impotently).

    Anyway, this essence isn’t heavy enough to be a moisturizer, nor light enough to be a serum. It kind of reminds me of a primer, really. It’s good for really dry skin days, or after too much sun. It just seems to put more fluid in your skin to rehydrate, than to regularly moisturize, in my opinion. It has a really light scent and I keep it in the fridge so I get a cool shot of it when I apply it after a day outside.

    Have you ever had a chance to try anything from Skinfood? Or even a product based on lettuce before?
