Eucerin Swag Bag Giveaway! (winner update 9/16/10)

**WINNERS**  Congrats to Sharon & AmberG!


Well hello giveaway lovers. I've cut back on hosting giveaways because they can be lots of work but this is one of those brands I couldn't say no to.

Eucerin has been in my home and on my family for years and I'm a big fan. Here's why:

My mom is a nurse and always recommended Eucerin

The Twofer both have sensitive skin (as do I) and Eucerin Calming Creme helps cure dry, itchy, sensitive skin.

Since becoming a mom my hands get terribly dry - I believe from all the hand-washing I do and Eucerin Intensive Repair Hand Creme really helps.

Recently my dermatologist gave me a mini sample of the Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion, SPF 30 and I LOVED it!

A friend of mine has a daughter with tons of allergies and she told me Eucerin is one of the only lotions that she can use.

Review: e.l.f. Makeup (Eyes Lips Face) made my eyes sparkle

One of my friends recently invited me to an e.l.f. #muah party at her house where I got to sample a ton of products from their three lines (e.l.f., Minerals & Studio).

Now, I'm not a big makeup person. I wear powder and mascara most days. But the times I do dress up, it will be nice to now know HOW to apply makeup correctly (thank you E.L.F.!) and to have GOOD makeup that works well on my skin.

What I learned in photos:

1. e.l.f. stands for eyes lips face and they have three different lines that work wonders on all our little imperfections


2. Applied correctly, three shadows are better than one. And at just $3 a piece, I can afford to buy the three shadows below that I used from the Mineral line of e.l.f.


3. Friends make sampling makeup so much more fun


4. e.l.f and speficially my new friends @askelf @eyeslipsface and @TedRubin are VERY easy to get in touch with, are very responsive when it comes to questions or suggestions, and are VERY generous.

After the party I was thinking of these Mother's Day gift baskets my neighborhood (you know, my wonderful neighborhood I love) puts together for the moms who have children at NIH. I asked if e.l.f. would be willing to donate some samples that we can include in the gift bags.

Their response? I got 2 large fishbowls filled with makeup withing days of asking!


So, e.l.f. is definitely getting Twofer Thumbs Up from me for being a company that cares about my skin, my budget, and other people.

Try e.l.f. today and let me know what you think!


Disclosure: sample products provided by eyeslipsface at no cost and this review is not related to, nor was a requirement for my participation in the #muah party. The company did not review this post prior to publishing...or, even after that I know of! Unless of course they leave a comment, which they are welcome to do. And now I'm getting all wordy in this disclosure but's my blog and just note I often write about things because I simply like them. Thankyouverymuch.


Review: L'Oreal Lash Boosting Technology - I think it's really working!

Recently I started using two L'Oreal las boosting products as part of a BzzAgent campaign.

L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Boosting Serum

The serum you swipe on your lashes and the lash line once or twice a day under mascara.  It's a clear serum and is not at all irritating to my eyes or skin.

L'Oreal Double Extend Lash Boosting Mascara

The mascara has two parts: a Lash Boosting Primer on one end, and an ultra-lenghtening mascara on the other. The mascara is not too clumpy and I think the primer helps the mascara last longer.

My Results Using L'Oreal Lash Boosting Products

I have pale, short and weak lashes. Some people won't leave the house without lipstick, for me, IF I wear anything on my face, it's mascara. I have to be completely honest and tell you I have not been using either the serum or the mascara every single day. BUT...I have noticed a difference!

My lashes seem thicker, fuller, and stronger. 

According to the BzzAgent information I was given, 78%  if women who used the products for 4 weeks notices they had less lash loss (say that 10 times fast) during makeup removal. And it says 81% say their lashes seem to be in better condition.

I will continue to use the product and try harder to apply the serum before bed every night (if not in the morning under mascara as well). But so far I really like it!
