Xen-Tan Transform Luxe Light/Medium Daily Self Tan...saved my white bum for a recent wedding!

Two weeks ago a dear friend of mine was married and I had the honor of being a bridesmaid.  With being a busy working Mommy....it often times seems impossible to do much beautifying on most days and I found myself a few days before her wedding being oh so very white.  Thank goodness I work for an online beauty store!  I rushed over and started searching through the Xen-Tan products to try and solve my dilemma.  I ended up grabbing the Xen-Tan Transform Luxe Light/Medium Daily Self Tan. 

The product is a daily sunless tanner that you use until you achieve your desired color and then as needed.  I took a shower on Thursday and applied the lotion immediately afterward making certain it was blended into my skin and absorbed.  The color isn't immediate, but I did still wash my hands as instructed.  It is a time release lotion which I had never used before...so, initially, I was hesitant thinking that it wasn't going to work. Much to my surprise within a few hours I saw a measurable difference.  With the wedding being on Saturday, I decided to repeat the same steps on Friday.  The results?  Fabulous!  Two of my best friends were so impressed with my color that they have since bought the product. 

I only have two suggestions.  First, you may want to have a friend or hubby apply the lotion to your back.  One of the other bridesmaids did notice early on Saturday that there was a streak on my back where I had missed applying the lotion.  Since I had brought it with me, I had her place lotion just in the streaked area and by that evening, the streak was gone.  Second suggestion is that if you don't care for the sunless lotion smell...then you might opt to put it on a few hours before bedtime (making certain you do not have light color sheets).  The only reason I suggest this is I had my first MOPS meeting on Friday and about half way through I started noticing the aroma...hence the time release I suppose...but I didn't smell the vanilla that it advertises just the typical sunless lotion smell, although not quite as powerful. 

I didn't have to reapply the lotion for an entire week and maintained my color.  This is why I have seriously fallen in love with Xen-Tan Transform Luxe Daily Self Tan.  I reapplied the lotion about a week ago and I still have great color..so the $30 bottle, should last me forever and the extra color makes me feel less insecure about some of my problem areas from having a little one.  I never thought I would be one of those gals that tried to have color year around, but after finding this product and it being so incredibly easy...my new plan is to be TAN!

I wish I had samples of this stuff, but unfortunately we do not.  I do, however, still have samples of Dermalogica's Eye-Make-up Remover so if you're interested, just reply to the blog with your email and I will get some to you.  Don't forget about our DIVA DOLLARS!  Refer a friend to this blog and email me their email to: jade.beautystoredepot@gmail.com and once verified I will send you $5 gift card.  There is no limit to how many DIVA DOLLARS you can receive, so try and get your friends and family to follow today! 

Until next time....stay tuned and stay beautiful!

Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover....it's the ABSOLUTE best!

So...I honestly can't believe that I haven't already chatted about Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover.  When I first started writing for this blog, I instantly talked about the products that I use daily or on a semi-regular basis...so I am amazed that I overlooked this ABSOLUTELY amazing eye make-up remover. 

I have been using this for at least seven years now and seriously refuse to try anything different.  There has only been one time that I strayed...and boy, was I disappointed!!  Even though I do not wear make-up daily, if I am wearing any...I WILL be wearing my mascara.  I am by far....a Mascara Mama!  Before discovering this little beauty, I had struggled to find an eye make-up remover that didn't irritate my already allergy stricken eyes.  It really is a constant struggle with my eyes due to allergies, contacts, and choosing to live in the middle of Texas where there's practically every allergen imaginable year around!  Finding this...literally soothing...eye make-up remover brought much relief to my poor little ol' eyes.

Dermalogica Soothing Eye Make-Up Remover is alcohol free AND oil free which are both HUGE pluses in my book.  Any oily product will lead to an unwanted visitor taking residence on my face for...oh, about a week... and any alcohol (around my eyes) irritate them and cause them to puff up a bit.  This eye make-up remover also takes very little product and COMPLETELY removes all of my eye make-up including my black mascara. 

Bottom line?  Try it!  I would be shocked if you didn't love it as much as I do. 

It's that time again....shameless bribing!  I have FREE SAMPLES ladies!  Just respond to this blog with your email address so that I can contact you for your shipping address. 

Also, don't forget about DIVA DOLLARS!  Any friend you refer to follow this blog you will receive $5 FREE!  Just email me your friend's email address to: jade.beautystoredepot@gmail.com and once verified I will forward you the money!!

Until next time....stay tuned and stay beautiful!

VITAPHENOL Skincare....results seen DAILY!!

I am blogging about VITAPHENOL Skincare this week and am super excited since the entire line is going to be included in the Emmy bags this Sunday....AND...guess who almost exclusively offers this product online?  That's right...WE DO and are VERY proud to do so!

VITAPHENOL Skincare System is a new, revolutionary anti-aging system that also nourishes your skin.  Until recently it was only available through dermatologist or plastic surgeons, but lucky us....you can now order it online here at Beautystoredepot.com. 

There are several things I love about this line.  First, is it's simplicity.  The entire line is only 7 products and they stick to the basics to purify, tone, repair, and hydrate your skin.  It is also ideal for all skin types and is packed FULL of antioxidants: mangosteen, pomegranate, green tea....just to name a few.  The VITAPHENOL Ultra Gentle Daily Cleanser is my new favorite cleanser.  It is incredibly gentle and leaves my skin feeling softer and looking smoother than prior to washing it.  Powered by the antioxidant-rich Vitaphenol Complex, this unique cleanser rejuvenates dull skin and visibly firms and perfects the skin. It's loaded with calming and desensitizing ingredients to provide a truly clean feeling.  Bottom line...I likey! 

DEAL TIME!  When you purchase $50 of VITAPHENOL we will GIVE you a FREE toner!  All you have to do is add it to your cart.  Can't get much better than that!  It's the perfect way to try two products from this AMAZING line.  And...don't forget about our DIVA DOLLARS!  Refer a friend to this blog and you will receive a FREE $5.  Just forward your friend's email address to: jade.beautystoredepot@gmail.com and once verified, I will send you your free money!

Until next time....stay tuned and stay beautiful!

iS Clincal YOUTH... It's hydration in a bottle...plus so much more!

I've been using iS Clincal YOUTH for years now and love the results it has on my skin.  If you read information on the product, you will see that SOME people experience results within a few hours, while others it may take a week to see any noticeable difference.  I am one of the fortunate people that see results within a few days due to the skin hydration qualities of the product. 

I have to be careful when selecting moisturizers since I have oily skin and am, most unfortunately, acne prone.  The fabulous thing about Youth, is that it has NEVER caused me to break out and definitely gives my skin that "healthy glow" that so many of us are trying to achieve.

iS Clinical YOUTH immediately increases hydration within the skin to plump fine lines and wrinkles, promotes controlled exfoliation to smooth and refine skin, while encouraging the production of the skins key support structures like collagen and elastin.  The longer you use the product, the better results you will get!

A downside is that upon stopping the use of product, the effects will lessen.  So, once you start, you most likely will NOT want to stop!  When I started using the product several years ago, I was working at a salon and ALL of us gals decided we just HAD to start using this product.  Next thing you know....we had stylists, aestheticians, massage therapists all buying this product in back bar sizes for their own personal use!  Most of us STILL use the product today.

So.....I am still trying to find creative ways to continue to bribe everyone to following my blog...and, more importantly...suckering your friends to as well!  My solution?  I am introducing DIVA DOLLARS!  For EVERY person you refer to this blog AND signs up to follow, I will GIVE you $5!  That's right...FREE MONEY PEOPLE!  All you have to do is email your friend's name and email address to me at: jade.beautystoredepot@gmail.com .  Once verified I will email you a gift certificate for your FREE $5!  There is NO limit as to how many DIVA DOLLARS you can receive.  You keep sending your friends and I will keep on sending you the money, honey!

Until next time...stay tuned and stay beautiful!
