Rodan & Fields Product Review and Contest Rules!!!

Good Evening everyone!!!
So first off I want to thank Lisa the consultant who has been so amazing helpful. She has given me the opportunity to bring such a great product line to you that I am beyond grateful for all her help! I am so unbelievably excited for this video I can hardly contain myself!! It took me hours to find the right words for this and I still feel like I cant express how much I LOVE this stuff!!

So like I said in the video I get asked all the time....


So I went on a search for a company that was well known and highly reputable.....someone that I know was trusted and would do what it said it was going to do and believe me that was HHAARRDD work! I must have put in hours upon hours looking for not just a great product but someone that had something for everybody! and after a long time I found it! Rodan & Fields also more commonly know for their line called Proactiv the number one selling skin care line in America. So right away I knew I found something great now the only problem with Proactiv is that it treats just one issue and that's acne and breakouts that is it so when I found out that the had a whole different world of products out I was immediately drawn to it.
If you read my post below I briefly wrote about the different lines of skin care they had and a few thoughts on the company so go check that out!

Now once I got a chance to physically try the products myself I was beyond impressed (and believe me that's not easy to do because I am pppiicckkkyyy!) First off the packaging was such a great quality I felt like it kept the product fresh and didn't seem like after time would end up getting broken. And the products themselves are not only great but in my opinion very unique. The face wash wasn't just a face wash it was a micro crystal exfoliator that was also a mask and left your skin with the best clean feeling you could imagine. Then the toner was not your average toner at all it had a smell very similar to the face wash and was not at all drying, there was no burning, and best of all it minimizes your pores and believe me it really did!! Then you have the AM and PM cream the AM had a SPF of 30 and photographed beautifully there was no whiteness like you get with sunscreen and it had a very mild scent. It was such a rich luxurious feeling. The PM cream just melts into your skin and kept it feeling hydrated and worked over night to stimulate collagen production and both helped into reducing the appearance of wrinkles! And whats great is that you can buy it separate or buy it in a kit form and if you are a little weary of the price tag. If you want to break it down it comes out around 80 cents a day for all four products with 2 months worth of product. If there is one item everyone should splurge on its skin care because you can spend all the money in the world on makeup but it is nothing without great skin!!! Now for the Contest rules!!!

Well Next on my Christmas Wish List!

Beauty starts within and from there the next layer is our skin! Its our canvas for the art we create each and every morning and with healthy and great looking skin we feel great am I right? Now I am blessed with pretty good skin so when I find a product that I feel would change my whole face routine I just have to share it. Now this company has NO idea I am writing this they did not pay me to write about them I just truly think it needs a mention!

Ok so I came across a company the other day and I AM LOVING IT! They are from the makers of a well known company Proactive so I know they have to be great!


The company is Rodan & Feilds and they have several different types and when I say something for everyone I am not kidding! and theres no long crazy test ( like some company that shall remain nameless...) 

For brown spots, dullness, and sun damage.

For fine lines, wrinkles, and loss of firmness.

For acne and post-acne marks.

For sensitive, irritated skin, and facial redness.
Everyday Dermatologic Necessities.
They also have a Holiday sets and Brushes as well as Microdermabarions for Lip, Face, and Body!
Now to me this looked like the top of the line stuff you would see in specialty salons and stores on Rodeo Drive but I looked at the price and while it may cost a bit more than what you would find at your local drugstore I would say the prices are pretty comparable to Murad which is a good company but do you get your own consultant with this you do you get someone who knows the brand and will help you choose whats right for you so best part?? No more guessing! You can buy separate or in a kit which is always awesome! 
They also have a perks program which is great for those who will buy time and time again ..which I have a feeling once you start using you will be hooked!  And they give back how cool is that I always think its great to support a company and its consultants who give back to those who are in need.
There really isn't a bad thing I can say about it I just overall felt like I really wanted to share this with you all and have left the links below! I have put this on my Christmas List and I hope you all do to! great skin for the holidays is the number one trend right now!
And a special hello to Lisa one of the Consultant shes So sweet and I am so glad to have met her take a look at her skin you will be convinced shes BEAUTIFUL!

Starbuck Recreation!! Pumpkin Spice Latte

Sssooo who doesnt love the Pumpkin Spice Latte from Starbucks?......But who hate the price tags?
Well I dont even live near a Starbucks and I hate to pay 5 dollars per cup so being the creative type I decided that I was going to make my own!

Ok So here is my recipe
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar ( more or less depending on how sweet)
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice OR 1/4 teaspoon each ginger nutmag and clove
  • Strong brew coffee or espresso about 5 cups but more or less depending on how much you want  it to taste like coffee

Now that we have all our ingredients together lets get started. First you need a sauce pan, a measuring cup, a spoon and a whisk or large spoon. first pour your milk in the pan and turn heat on to a medium level then measure out your pumpkin once milk has steam rising off it add the pumpkin and stir stir stir! once all mix add in your spices and stir again let it cook until you see tiny bubbles once you see them tiny little bubbles its time to add your
caramel sauce and sugar the stir again. now add your coffee add as much or as little as you want depending on your taste. then turn off heat and let cool, once cool pour into a container with a lid and put in the fridge let set overnight and in the morning strain all the little particals from the pumpkin puree and either enjoy cold or hot! its really taste so I hope you all enjoy it :D for full instuctions watch my video on youtube :)!

Pumpkin Face mask

So its fall and what better way to celebrate than with a pumpkin face mask! Now I Have A TON of DIY "recipes" if you will and I thought I would share them with you. I am new to this whole blogging thing and have never been one for writing ......or spelling for that matter so bare with me as I do this haha :)

Pumpkin Face mask Recipe
1/2 cup pumpkin ( make sure its not pumpkin pie filling you don't want the added sugars)
1 teaspoon honey
1 small egg
For oily skin add 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
for dry to combination skin add 1 teaspoon almond milk

The reason why I love the mask so much is because it is moisturizing and as we all know fall and winter can be a very drying time of year!!

add your ingredients all in a bowl and mix, mix, mix....... until........

you get this!

It should be a nice smooth consistency. The way i like to apply this is with a foundation brush or a cosmetic sponge. Let this set on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes then rinse with warm water and moisturize as normal! I hope you all enjoy this and let me know if you want more DIY videos I have a ton!!
The Benefits of the mask
1. pumpkin is rich in antioxidants and natural exfoliating acids
2. the egg will help to brighten and tighten the skin
3.honey has natural anti microbial properties
4. honey also helps fight against damage cause by UV rays
5. honey also helps retain water in the skin aiding the pumpkin in the moisturizing
6. too many more too list!!! i seriously could go on for days why this is so beneficial!
Have a beautiful day <3
