Lovely Lady Products Review and Giveaway!

Lovely Lady Products Review and Giveaway!

After getting over a horrible sinus infection along with double ear infections, I am finally on the mend! Now I can do this amazing giveaway for all of you that I’ve been meaning to do since January. Does time get away from everyone? It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating New Years Eve and now spring is knocking on our door! Although, I admit I will welcome the warmer weather with open arms.

Alright… Let’s get down to business!

I first met Cheryl with Lovely Lady Products at the International Celiac Disease Symposium. Her story was inspiring and I seriously couldn’t stop staring at her face – her skin is flawless! Turns out after years of having problems (just like the rest of us) she found out she has celiac disease and went out on a mission to create natural products to help everyone.

Prior to meeting Cheryl, my esthetician suggested using Argan Oil on my face instead of chemically filled products so for about a year, that’s what I’ve been doing. My skin feels so good! Turns out Lovely Lady Products knows a thing or 2 about Argan Oil and uses it in many of their products. After getting  bunch of testers, I was hooked and have been using Lovely Lady Products since the fall.

So, what products do I use? I’ll admit, I’ve never been a huge beauty product consumer and typically use an entire bottle of something I like before moving on to the next. I absolutely love the Facial Nutrient and Night Serum Oil.

Few tips – Our skin needs oil! That’s what prevents wrinkles and fine lines. It’s imperative that we keep moisture and elasticity in our skin to look fresh and young forever. You only need a small amount of these products. Don’t take a huge amount of the oil and put it on your face. You want just a little bit – enough for it to melt into your skin and not feel greasy. If your face feels greasy, you are using too much.

Everlasting-Argan Immortelle Facial Nutrient
(Embrace the power to never fade)

Creams and lotions may be inefficient at preventing dry, tired, itchy and sun damaged skin.  Over time, your skin needs more hydration and natural nutrients which help to slow and prevent the effects of aging.  This fast absorbing nutrient salve deeply penetrates and moisturizes the skin.  One of the key ingredients is helichrysum essential oil.  There’s a reason this oil is called “Everlasting” and “Immortelle”.  This flower will not wilt or wither after it has been picked.  This formula is complete with properties from the immortelle plant, so just imagine how effective these properties can be.

Everlasting-Argan Night Serum Oil
(Help your skin find its eternal fountain of youth)

Our Pure Organic Argan Oil will help your skin find its eternal fountain of youth. This easy to absorb oil will help to minimize lines and wrinkles, bringing moisture to your skin as it nourishes and protects from the environment.  We suggest using our Serum oil prior to going to bed, which will assist with your skin’s own ability to regenerate itself.  Cell regeneration is a natural process where fresh, new skin cells replace old, dead skin. This happens quicker at night compared to daytime. Vitamins and other healing/anti-aging plant properties lose potency after exposure to sunlight, which render them less effective.  Due to there being no sunlight exposure at night, vitamins and other skin healing properties stay active longer and can provide more anti-aging benefits for your skin (by supporting the skin’s hydro-lipid layer).   This oil is a truly natural solution for youthful, healthy and beautiful looking skin.

So, What am I giving away?

Natural Products Expo East 2013 Giveaway!!!

This blog post is embarrassing for me!

I went to Natural Products Expo East in September and have been meaning to get around to do this giveaway for you for weeks now. It seems like a day turned into a week, which turned into a month went way too quickly and time has certainly gotten away from me.

We are finally feeling like home in our new apartment. The walls are painted and we actually have a couch! Living on outdoor furniture for 3 weeks was taking a toll on us…

I’ll admit, I haven’t been very motivated to blog. I haven’t been motivated to do much of anything since we moved away from Columbus. I miss my friends, my clients and my business. I miss the familiarity of knowing how to get places and where everything is in the city. But, while a large part of me misses my old life, an even bigger piece of me loves my new life.

I’m getting out, meeting people, joining organizations and applying for part-time jobs. I started playing tennis, I joined a yoga studio and I’m working on lots of new projects with Andrew Cordova over at GF Magazine! Things are great and I’m starting to crawl out of my cave.

I feel I owe it to all of you, my loyal readers, to give you a fantastic giveaway filled with goodies and that is exactly what I am going to do…

So, how do you enter this amazing giveaway? Simple! Follow the instructions below in the Rafflecopter prize program and then see if you win on Sunday!

What’s in the prize pack? Tons of samples, information, goodies and PLC gear!!!!

Gluten Free Haircare Giveaway – ColorProof

When my hairdresser said she started to carry gluten free products just for me, I was elated. She is amazing and I’ve been going to Teresa Carter for many years here in Columbus. I love all things beauty and my hair is just one more thing for me to obsess over. I’ll admit, my hair falling out was a huge sign for me that something was wrong with my body. It was very long but just not healthy.

I reached out to ColorProof to see if they would be interested in doing a giveaway for my readers because hair care is a question I am constantly asked about! And they were so wonderful to send me products to use and some for you to win! I’m giving away all 4 products in one swoop.

These products smell delicious – Is that even a thing? I just want to smell my hair all day. This might be the game changer from only washing my hair 2 times a week. I am extremely impressed with these products and they have a fan for life!
