I look through a lot of fashion magazines on a day to day basis and every so often I get the overwhelming feeling of dejavu. That was definitely the case as I was flipping through the latest Elle edition and came across an article on actress Jennifer Connelly sharing her beauty secrets and product essentials. To me, Jennifer is the epitome of a natural beauty. She has the perfect full brows and her eyes are so hauntingly beautiful she doesn't need a lot of makeup as they are their own showcase.In the article, Jennifer says her beauty approach is pretty minimal and she normally finds new products when working with trusted makeup artist Judy Chin. A couple of her go to favorites, and my reason for deja-vu, is that she swears by Rosebud Salve and Mason Pearson hairbrushes. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised as this duo has been talked about by numerous celebrities, probably because both brands have been around for so long that they've built a trust with their customers. Jennifer loves Rosebud Salve for moisturized, high impact lips and a Mason Pearson brush to keep her glossy and shiny. With a face like that, even the most minimal additions make her look more beautiful! Read More »

The Clarisonic skin care system costs a pretty penny, and shoppers always ask how long it takes to see results. You work hard for your money, and the last thing you want to do is spend it on a dud. The length of time it takes to see results from the Clarisonic skin care system depends on your unique skin care needs, but you will feel a difference right away.
The Clarisonic skin care system uses a removable brush head that moves at sonic speed (more than 300 times per second) yet is gentle enough to use twice a day. The result of the sonic motion is skin that is cleaner, less oily, clearer, feels softer and looks younger.

After about 4 days of using her new Clarisonic Plus, she noticed a huge improvement in the overall tone and quality of her skin. Her complexion has increased radiance and glow, and her pores are less noticeable.Read More »
