Digital Camera Giveaway !

Hi everyone ! I wanted to do something nice for my Blog followers. So, here it is. I am giving away a Philips " See- me See -you" Digital Camera !!

It has a reflective mirror on it so it is perfect for self portraits if no one is around to take a picture of you, this comes in handy ! It is also great for group pictures when you want everyone you are with in the picture. You can hold it at arms length and get a picture of yourself and see exactly what the camera sees. The mirror also slides on over when you are done taking pictures so it can protect the lens. It also has 4x zoom and has 5 mega pixels. The screen size is 2.4 inches.

I think this is great for someone who wants to take self portraits or group portraits and have everyone included. Or, it can be used as an everyday camera. It can also record video and has a built in microphone.

My Updated Skin Care Routine with my new Favorite SPF by Clickr !

Okay, I will skip right to the point, whether you are 20 or 70, your skin needs to be protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays. I am a serious SPF applier. I apply it on my hands, face and neck in the winter. And during the summer whatever parts of me are exposed are covered with SPF. I want to look as good as I can, for as long as I can. And, I think any woman would agree with me on that statement.

I have combination/oily skin. And my eyes are super sensitive to whatever I apply near them. So, when I apply a new product near my eyes for the first time I am always nervous. I've said it before a lot of things make my eyes turn red, glassy etc. My normal routine was to apply Murad Oil- Control Mattifier SPF 15 to my entire face. I needed something that gave me moisture, because although, the MuradOil- Control Mattifier SPF 15 worked well, it wasn't giving me much hydration in the areas that need to be nourished as we grow older. So, I have updated my skin routine here it is

Morning :
Clickr Pearl Face wash
My Clarisonic Mia (of course)

Clickr Vanishing Mist (mist, then, spread across face with cotton round) DermaDoctor Litmus Test PH correcting and renewing glycolic acid facial moisturizer ( You MUST use SPF if you use this product in the day, it contains glycolic acid which can make your skin more sensitive to the sun. So be wise, SPF-itize ! lol )
Clickr Day Brilliant Lotion Spf 15 (Liberally applied to face and neck)
Murad Oil-control Mattifier (over entire T- zone after applying the day brilliant lotion)

Night :
Clickr Pearl Face wash

Clarisonic Mia Clickr Vanishing Mist (mist, then, spread across face with cotton round)
Philosophy - "When Hope Is not Enough" serum"
Clickr Diamond Dust Skin Polisher
Clickr Eye cream
DermaDoctor wrinkle revenge
Clearisil ultra Rapid action treatment cream. (Spot treat and usually apply to my forehead because I get tiny bumps which I hate !)

2 Times a week :
Boscia Luminizing Black mask
Dermadoctor Physical Chemistry

2 times a month:
Nubrilliance : Real Microdermabrasion at home

I love the ease of this and the fact that I don't have to make an appointment at a Salon to get it done doesn't hurt. Plus, I am an esthetician so it also doesn't hurt that I know how to properly use it. I have used machines that cost thousands of dollars in Spa's and this is an amazing alternative. Plus, the bumps on my forehead have decreased by at least 30 percent since first using it. ( Late December )
* It helps improve skin tone texture and elasticity
* Helps reduce acne scars or age spots
* Helps reduce lines around eyes

* Promotes smoother looking skin

It also has a Trademarked diamond tip , which is non abrasive and gentle on the skin.

And my FAVORITE part is that I now found my favorite Moisturizing SPF (Clickr Spf 15 Day brilliant lotion)
I still love my Murad SPF 15 oil mattifier. I use it on my t- zone after applying my Clickr Spf 15 Day brilliant lotion. Just to make sure I have NO shine. I can't stand shiny faces LOL. But I have tried lots of moisturizing SPF lotions and they all irritated my eyes. For instance as much as I tried to love Philosophy " Hope In A Jar" SPF 20, it burned my eyes and made them red. The place you need to protect the most is your eye area. So, I'm happy that I found something that does not irritate my eyes and that I can apply and not look like I am crying LOL. Plus, It has many amazing ingredients

  • Avobenzone, Octislate, Octinoxate – Protects skin from UV-damage
  • Diamond Powder – Polishes skin gently to unveil its natural glow
  • Alteromonas Ferment & Chrysanthellum Indicum Extracts – Provides 90% pollution protection
  • Hexapeptide-3 – Tones, energizes and smoothes
  • Sodium PCA, Urea, Trehalose, Polyquaternium-51, Sodium Hyalluronate – Increases moisture saturation and retention
  • Mother of Pearl – Deflects foreign face invaders
  • Silver – Zaps bacteria and minimizes facial lines
  • Gold – Delivers oxygen into the skin to promote radiance
It is safe for sensitive skin and is HONESTLY from the bottom of my heart amazing. I know some people think that a bloggers judgment can sometimes be swayed by free products. But I went out and purchased this hoping for the best and it did not let me down ! It is something I have been searching High and Low for ! I have been looking for the perfect mesh of skin care products and since I have oily combination skin it can be hard. Also, when you are in your 20's you are focusing on anti-aging and also combating the every now and then breakout. But my routine can be used for people of all ages, that is why I had to let you all know !
