HOT Product Alert: NuFACE Trinity and Wrinkle Remover Attachment


We get questions all the time about how to prevent aging, slow it down or take away those pesky lines and wrinkles.  We have the answer – NuFACE Trinity Facial Toning Device!  Chosen by over 5,000 beauty industry experts as the 2013 Beauty Insiders’ Choice Award for Best Skincare Tool, this product is truly worth the investment, especially if you’re considering more invasive procedures or botox.


The NuFACE Trinity will firm AND plump skin, so say goodbye to loose jowls, fine lines and wrinkles.  It will also restore your youthful glow, decrease puffiness, reduce dark circles, shrink enlarged pores and reduce scarring.  (What can’t it do?!)  And with treatments in the privacy of your own home, it can be your little secret!


Most users see a difference in their skin after one use.  It is recommended to use your Trinity at least 5 days a week for the first 90 days, then 2-3 days a week to maintain results.  I know that may sound like a lot of work, but it’s really only 5-20 minutes a day, so take this time to pamper yourself and consider it your “me” time.

Clients are also curious about the Trinity Attachments.  The Trinity Facial Trainer works from the inside out with microcurrent technology to gently and effectively stimulate skin.  Whereas the Trinity Wrinkle Remover works from the outside in, utilizing red and infrared light of different wavelengths to address different depths of wrinkles within the skin.  As these lights are absorbed, your skin increases its production of collagen and elastin, improving firmness and texture.

Now, onto this month’s contest:

When you purchase a NuFACE Trinity (in White or Petal Pink), you will be entered into a contest to win a pack of 3 full size NuFACE Serums, including:  Nourisher – to repair and protect skin, Smoother – to decrease wrinkles, and Lifter – to tone skin and reduce discoloration.  This prize pack is a $256 Value – WOW!

That’s not all.  When you purchase any NuFACE device, you can also get a FREE NuFACE Crème Primer!  Just apply code NUCREME in your shopping cart at checkout.

Until next time… stay tuned and stay beautiful!

At Home Fanny Facial

I  had completely forgotten about the Fanny Facial until a few months ago when a friend had gone to use a gift certificate to a local salon and had a Bottom's Up Facial.  She started describing it to me and it jogged my memory on the Fanny Facials the salon I managed use to offer as a service.  BTW - I like Fanny Facial for a name better. 

Personally, I would more than likely never go to a salon for a Fanny Facial.  I suppose it's just a comfort level issue, but I feel like no one needs to see my Fanny unless it's my husband!  However, I do see and understand the need for such a service.  Let's face it, our fanny is skin and can get blackheads, pimples, etc just like our face.  I will be completely honest and say my fanny gets completely neglected...heck, I hadn't even looked at it in forever until today!  The only attention my fanny gets is in the shower I have a separate Clarisonic head for my body and the fanny gets some Clarisonic washing every shower.

The Newest Trend: Fanny Facial

So, why go to a salon or day spa when you can do it yourself at home?  Below are a few steps to do your At Home Fanny Facial.

  • Make sure your fanny is clean.  I used the iS Clinical Body Complex along with my Clarisonic (have a separate brush head obviously)
  • Blot dry with a towel
  • Exfoliate - you can most likely use the same thing as you do on your face or use a PMD with a separate head (that's what I did....yes, I microdermed my fanny people! and I have to say I like the results)
  • Rinse if needed and blot dry again
  • Treat any possible bumps by either product or extraction
  • Moisturize or self tan - I have been using my Xen-Tan to keep some color during the summer, so since I had exfoliated and the area was primed for tanning, I went ahead and used my Xen-Tan instead of a lotion.  If you had any areas that you treated with product for acne, then I wouldn't use the Xen-Tan...just not sure how it might react.  
And Voila....you're done!  One thing to PLEASE NOTE is to make certain you read your products before applying to the fanny.

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

PMD and Sircuit Skin Youth Accelerator +

My PMD Personal Microderm Device has become my new favorite tool.  I am home with a sick little one today, so I finally opened the package, watched the DVD, and performed a few different treatments on my face and body.

The device is super easy to use and I love the fact that it doesn't have to be charged.  You simply plug it in and begin use with the test applicator.  I immediately saw a difference in my face which was actually surprising since it was only with the test applicator which is the lowest level of the tips.  I really wasn't expecting much from this tip so I am even more excited to use the next tip up for even better results!  The suction is impressive as well and equal to Microderms I have had from a salon.

Check out these impressive Before and After shots!


After I finished the treatment on my face I used my Sircuit Youth Accelerator+ Pumpkin Enzyme Peel.  I absolutely love this mask anyways, but the results were even more spectacular after removing all of the dead skin cells.  The PMD has been proven to increase the effectiveness of products by 20x!  The wrinkles around my lips and on my forehead were less noticeable.  Even better?  My skin is the softest it has been in years!  I am also ecstatic because a very stubborn whitehead actually FINALLY loosened up a bit.  This is definitely going to be a new addition into my skin regiment.

I also went ahead and used the PMD on both my upper arms and legs (this is the area where I tend to get those lovely little bumps).  The device comes with larger tips specifically for the body which is also a plus!  I was impressed, yet again, with the results.  It immediately smoothed out portions of the bumps and after adding lotion my arms and legs are incredibly smooth for me  I can't wait to use it again with a more aggressive tip!

If you love a good Microderm, then I really couldn't recommend a product more!

Our Recommended Back Acne Treatments

With the scorching summer heat, we're all looking for ways to keep cool.  This season we're wearing tank tops, swimsuits and strapless clothing.  It can be embarrassing to show off some skin when you suffer from back acne.  Today, we'll discuss three awesome options to help you treat and prevent back acne, while helping you feel more confident in your own skin.  Each of these products contains a convenient spray nozzle to help reach your pesky back breakouts, and potent anti-acneic Salicylic Acid.

Hit the Spot with these Back Acne Treatments


We are a big fan of all the amazing products from Cosmedix.  To help treat facial and back acne, use Cosmedix Purity Balance.  This toner is an antiseptic, antibacterial and exfoliant, all in one.  With Purity Balance, you can expect to achieve calmer skin, with decreased oil production, and cleaner pores – all resulting in clear skin for your face and back!

Glytone features many products specifically for acne.  This summer, we can hardly keep the Glytone Acne Treatment Back Spray on our shelves (especially the new convenient travel size)!  This spray is highly effective with its 2% Salicylic Acid deeply penetrating pores to heal and prevent acne, and get rid of dead skin cells.  It also easily sprays upside down so you're sure to reach all of your back.  I've personally been using this spray as a preventative treatment during the spring and summer, since getting hot and sweaty leads to clogged pores and breakouts.  I use it right after towel drying from the shower, so I know I have time to let it dry.  Word of advice – when I use this product, I also cover my mouth and nose with my towel.  Since this product has no added fragrance, it has a strong natural scent.

If you check out our New Arrivals, you'll see that we have recently added glotherapeutics Back Acne Treatment.  With 0.5% Salicylic Acid, it is more gentle, but still works deep down to break up sebum and bacteria.  It is also an antibacterial and antioxidant with refreshing Spearmint Oil.  It even contains a unique 360-degree sprayer so you won't miss a spot.

Back acne can be embarrassing, but you don't have to hide it anymore.  Treat it, prevent it, and flaunt your clear skin this summer!  Right now, you can save 15% on body products with code:  15HEALTH, because a healthy body, is a healthy you.  Hurry - sale ends soon! 

If you have any other body concerns that you would like us to blog about, let us know!  We love your feedback.

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

Happy Fourth of July!

Hello ladies and gents!  We just wanted to write a little note and say THANK YOU to all of our wonderful clients.  We can't tell you enough how much we appreciate your business.  And another even larger THANK YOU to all who have served. 

Since so many of us will be "out and about" this holiday weekend, make sure to not forget your sunscreen!  Also remember to re-apply every hour with continued sun exposure....especially on all of our little ones.

Our big plans for this weekend include an annual bike parade in our neighborhood, BBQ, pool, and of course...fireworks!  Speaking of BBQ, if you haven't already....don't forget to check out our other store The Grill Life.  Last year was our first year in our neighborhood so I didn't get the memo about all the children having glow sticks while watching the fireworks.  She was so disappointed....so, of course, I went to one of our local dollar stores and went completely crazy on glow sticks.  This year, we are set!



We wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July!  Don't forget to take a moment to thank all of those who have so bravely served for our country.  We wouldn't have the freedom and luxuries we do without them.

If you need some product we have a great sale going on right now!  Get 20% off AND FREE shipping and samples by using the code: 4th at checkout.  For more details simply click here.

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