10 Things To Love About Summer Fridays’ Jet Lag Mask.

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask

 

  1. It has a velvety texture. Jet Lag Mask isn’t slimey or gooey.
  2. It disappears into your skin. The mask goes on white but then disappears into your skin, so you can wear it on a plane or any other public place.
  3. It smooths your complexion. Chestnut extract exfoliates to smooth out rough or uneven patches, Vitamin C and niacinamide brighten the complexion and ceramides hydrate your skin making it gorgeously glowy and selfie-sensational.
  4. You can use it as a primer! Helloooo?? Seriously this multi use product actually doubles up as a beautiful primer. Just apply a thin coat and give it a moment to sink in before applying your makeup.
  5. No Animal Testing. Jet Lag Mask is both vegan and cruelty free – no animals were tested on to make this product.
  6. Jet Lag Mask is paraben free, sulphate free, fragrance free and contains no synthetic dyes. Now wonder your skin loves it!
  7. This is a no rinse mask. It takes 10 minutes, then you simply blot it with a tissue.
  8. You can leave in on overnight. If your skin want some extra special loving, just leave Jet Lag Mask on overnight, and you will wake up with plumped up, radiant skin.
  9. At just under 3 oz you can take this mask on the plane with you – something this traveler is thrilled about!
  10. It keeps selling out! The best way to get your hands on a tube is to go to Summer Fridays’ website or to Sephora.com. You may need to get on a wait list, but it’s worth it!

Do you receive any subscription boxes? They are one of my most favorite things! I received my Fab Fit Fun Spring 2018 Box last week, and want to show you just how many fabulous things you get for $50!

Fab Fit Fun Spring 2018

 

 

I love the packaging of these boxes. Every little detail is thought out, and the presentation is lovely. I don’t get this box as a freebie – I subscribe to Fab Fit Fun and pay for each box. I see it as a present to myself, so having something prettily wrapped feels like a bonus.

Speaking of bonuses, Fab Fit Fun lets you add on bonuses to your box. A few weeks before the boxes ship you receive an email that lets you click in and add all kinds of goodies at a substantial discount. My favorites are the Marrakesh hair products. If they are available I add them on to my box order.

Here is a breakdown of what came in the Spring 2018 Fab Fit Fun box. I have a link and a discount code at the bottom of this post.

Fab Fit Fun Spring 2018 Box

The anchor product in this box is a reversible clutch purse from Rachel Pally with a retail value of $60. One side is a plain, block shade, and the other is a vibrant print. You can use this clutch to go out at night, pair it with jeans and a t-shirt, or even use it après-beach! I especially love that Rachel Pally manufactures in her home town of Los Angeles, providing work and a healthy wage for local Angelenos rather than outsourcing it for cheap.

Free People supplied a vegan leather eye mask. (retail value $40) These are not only fabulous for those needing a good night sleep or taking long flights, but also for anyone who’s eyes are looking tired or puffy. There is a removable cooling pack that you can keep in the fridge and slip into the pouch whenever your eyes need a pick-me-up. If you spend long hours in front of a computer you no doubt already see how tired the skin around your eyes looks. I am finishing the book I have been writing, and have spent the past few months in front of a screen, typing all day. The skin around my eyes looks exhausted! Being able to relax for 10 minutes with a cooling eye mask works wonders.

From Anderson Lilley there is a fresh spring fragranced candle. (retail value $45) Mine came in the Fresh Linen fragrance. The candles are made with a hand poured coconut wax blend and have a cotton, lead free wick. The candle itself comes in a stylish copper vessel that you can later use to stand makeup brushes or pencils or even little bouquets of fresh flowers.

You Tube guru Alex Garza designed a lip palette with Ish for the Fab Fit Fun box. (retail value $42). There are 12 shades of nicely pigmented color, with some nice neutrals as well as some popping pinks for spring.

Murad’s Skin Perfecting Lotion (retail $40) is an ultra light, oil free moisturizer for all skin types. It minimizes the appearance of large pores, soothes redness and irritation (making it great for acne prone skin), and gives you face some luxurious hydration.

The Spring 2018 box gave you a choice between a pair of Ettika tassel earrings or a Maya Brenner designed LOVE bracelet. I took the bracelet, which is valued at $65.

The beauty choice item was between KNC Lip masks or a Korres Guava Body Butter. I always need more body lotions and body butters, so I chose the $24 Korres Body Butter. It is creamy and thick and really is lovely.

The Physique 57 Massage Roller ($20) looks like a torture device but it actually works wonders on tired, achy muscles. Whether the gym has you feeling beaten up or whether its just life and work and commuting that are tiring you out, 10 minutes with a massage roller will have you feeling invigorated and ready to take on the world!

The Dermelect Cosmeceuticals  Concealing Ridge Filler ($18) keeps your nails looking healthy. It conceals nail imperfections with a pinky hue while treating them with protein, vitamins and moisture.

I also received a Dove Exfoliating Body Polish to keep in the shower. This gentle body polish helps to slough away dead, winter skin and reveal the fresh, glowing skin underneath.

This is approximately $344 worth of new season fabulous for only $50!

If you would like to try out the  Fab Fit Fun subscription box use this link and add in the promo code SUNSHINE to receive $10 off your first box. If you use my link you can get all of these fabulous products for just $40!

Enjoy friends!

 

Bargain Beauty products

 

Beauty products don’t always have to come with a big price tag. I love expensive makeup and skincare products as much as anyone, but I often find really great beauty items at places like Target very inexpensively.

For the Spring 2018 issue of Luca Magazine I charged our glam crew with finding fantastic beauty products that cost $20 or less. My task was to see what I could find at Target. I wanted to see if you could create all the new season’s beauty looks with bargain priced beauty products. Here is what I found:

I broke my beauty finds at Target into 6 categories

Cleansers:

Most skin problems start with your choice of cleanser. A cleanser that strips the skin creates a dry and lifeless looking complexion for normal to dry skinned girls, and actually creates more oil for oily skinned girls! I found 2 of my favorite types of cleanser for bargain prices. Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water removes makeup and cleanses the skin and is good for all skin types. At $6.99 it is an absolute bargain!

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

My other favorite type of cleanser is an oil cleanser. Oil cleansers dissolve all makeup, even the most stubborn waterproof mascaras, and are extra gentle on the skin. Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil costs $15.99 and is worth every penny.

SPF:

No matter what is in your moisturizer or your foundation you still need to use a free standing facial SPF.

Neutrogena Dry Touch SPF 100

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch SPF 100 has a dry finish that keeps your makeup in place, feels light on your skin and gives you the maximum broad spectrum protection for only $9.99. If I were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one product with me, this would be it!

Base Coat:

As the sun comes back out to play the last thing you want is a heavy foundation, but you’re not quite ready to go bare. The perfect cross season product is a BB Cream.

L'Oreal Skin Beautifier BB Cream

L’Oreal Skin Beautifier BB Cream gives you glowing, gorgeous skin, evens out your color and keeps you looking fresh! With a $7.99 price tag it is super affordable.

Eye Liner:

Every girl needs a killer eyeliner. Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel liner in black is the inkiest, glossiest black you will ever find, and at $7.99 it’s a bargain too!

If you prefer a pen eyeliner NYX Epic Ink Liner gives you a feline flick for the same price.

Budget Lipstick:

Cover Girl Colorliscious Lipstick

There are no end of bargain priced lip products. Some of my favorites are by NYX and cost $6.99. Their Butter Lip Glosses have a fabulous color payoff and stay nice and creamy. If you want a super saturated matte lip the NYX Full Throttle Lipstick in Firestorm packs a mega punch for the new season! My personal favorite, a lipstick that I have worn for several years now is Cover Girl Colorliscious Lipstick in shade 325, Spellbound. This is the absolute perfect fuchsia and you cannot beat it at any price point.
