A Sneak Peek At Our AMAZING Black Friday GWP's

Where has this year gone?  It's hard to believe that holiday season has arrived AND Black Friday and Cyber Monday are right around the corner.

We have some truly amazing FREE Gifts With Purchases for this year's Black Friday.  SO many goodies, in fact...that I am going to give you a quick sneak peek into a few of the products that will be included.......but you will have to wait until next week for the full lineup!


Ready?  Here we go!


HAIR
FACE

  • Billy Jealousy Sucker Punch Face Scrub - My hubby uses this several times a week (recommended before shaving), but I have been known to still it at least once a week myself!  It's a great face scrub and leaves your skin feeling soft and nourished.
  • GloTherapeutics Calming Flower Mist - This mist is designed to calm irritated and sensitive skin, but I love it and use it daily after washing my face.  I also use it to set my makeup.  



MAKEUP

  • GloMinerals Suede Matte Crayon - I have always been a gloss girl.  I could just never stand the feel of lipstick, so I was VERY pleasantly surprised when I tried this lip crayon.  I love it!  It lasts WAY longer than my gloss, easy application, and doesn't have the tacky feel of lipstick.
  • GloMinerals Lash Boosting Mascara -  This Lash Boosting Mascara does all the eye-wonders in one formula - volumizing, thickening, lengthening, strengthening and conditioning!  What more could you ask for out of a mascara?

This is just the FIRST look at the amazing products included in our Black Friday and Cyber Monday GWP's.  Don't forget to check back next week for a full list of all our goodies!

Feeling A Bit Dry? We Gotcha Covered!

I struggle with dry skin constantly, but with Winter fast approaching...it only gets worse.  If I stay ontop of it, I can keep it under control, but there are definitely those times where I cringe if someone happens to brush against my rough, dry skin.  This year I have vowed to start taking steps to improve my skin before the dry Winter months are in full effect.


There are a ton of products and regimens you can take to improve dry skin.  The method that works best for me is a combination of exfoliating and moisturizing.  In this blog I will highlight some of my personal favorite 'attackers' against my battle of dry skin.

For exfoliation, if you don't already own a Clarisonic, then I can't recommend a product more.  I use it on my face and body daily and it has improved my skin texture and appearance tremendously. I seriously take mine everywhere....even on just a 2 night trip...and have for over 10 years now. 

Here are a few others of my favorite exfoliating products:

FOR FACE


FOR BODY


We offer a TON of amazing moisturizing products, but here are a few of my personal faves:

LUCKY YOU!  Several of these amazing products are going to be included with our BLACK FRIDAY Gifts with Purchases.  Stay tuned for more sneak peaks into our AMAZING GWP'S!!

EEK! Got Thinning Hair?

I am not quite 40 yet, but have been experiencing significant hair loss over the past several years.  To be perfectly honest, it was quite frightening when it first started.  Let's discuss a few common causes for hair loss and treatments.


There are several very common reasons for hair loss and they are:

  • STRESS
  • PULLING HAIR BACK TOO OFTEN OR TOO TIGHT
  • POOR NUTRITION
  • HORMONAL IMBALANCE
  • OVER BLOWDRYING OR STYLING
  • BRUSHING HAIR WHEN WET
  • REACTION TO MEDICATION
  • HEALTH ISSUE

When your husband and children begin commenting on finding "Mommy Hairs" all over the house, you start to dread brushing your hair or even running your hands through your hair in fear of how much you are going to see...then it's time to start finding causes and solutions.  Many of the above are simple fixes: avoid putting your hair back, make sure you are eating properly, stop blowdrying and or ironing hair, and instead of brushing your hair when it's wet either wait until it is completely dry OR use a comb or pick instead of a hairbrush.  

If you attempt the simple fixes and still aren't noticing any improvement, the next step would be to go to your physician.  In my case, I did notice some difference but not enough, so I went in for a check up and discovered I was lacking several key hormones.  Once I discovered the problem and balanced my body, I noticed a HUGE difference.  I also began using shampoo and conditioners specifically addressing hair loss

There are also several other types of products we offer here at beautystoredepot for hair loss.  

If you're looking for a GREAT way to begin treating your hair loss try looking at a kit.  This will give you all the products you need for a minimum of a month allowing you to easily start a new regime.



With so many options there is absolutely no reason to go ONE MORE DAY worrying about your thinning hair.

2016 HOT Fall Lash Looks

You just gotta love Fall!  The changing of the leaves, cooler weather, kids back in school, change in wardrobe selection.....something about it just makes me want to be adventurous and try something new with my makeup.

There are a lot of makeup trends making a comeback this season (some my old school self is just having trouble getting behind):  blue eyeshadow, smudged eyeliner, sparkly eyes, but for eyelashes there's something for everyone and we have just the products to help you achieve these HOT Fall Lash Looks!

60's Retro Lash

It seems like almost any type of eyelash is in this fall.  My personal favorite is the picture above which reminds me of the 60's and a Twiggy kind of look, but the clumpy look has made a comeback this year too!

Classic Clumpy
The great thing about BOTH of these HOT Fall looks, is that I feel like no matter what kind of eyelash day I am having, I can make it work.  

Most women by the age of 20 (even before really) have found their preferred method of eyelash application, but one thing many may not have yet tried are eyelash enhancers.  GrandeLASH, RevitaLash Advanced, and Rozge Cosmeceutical Renew Eyelash Revitalizer are all fantastic options!  With daily application of these products you will see longer and fuller lashes typically after 4-6 weeks.  I am just months from 40 and began using GrandeLASH just over a month ago.  I have definitely seen a dramatic difference in both my length and volume.  Starting with a product like any of these, will give you a fantastic base lash to start with and lead to dramatic and beautiful eyelashes. 

Eyeliners and mascaras are both personal preferences in my opinion and we have a large selection of both even for the most selective of individuals.   An award winning product that combines an eyelash enhancer with an eyeliner has become a hot product here at beautystoredepot.  Grande Liner - Rich Black is a liquid eye liner that will also enhance your lashes.  The reviews on this product are fantastic and such an innovative idea to make a daily used product actually work in your favor!  

Until next time, stay you and stay beautiful!

Happy 11th Birthday To Us!

It's hard to believe that it was 11 years ago that we started beautystoredepot in a small 100 square foot room at the back of a salon.  My...how we have grown and how things in the industry have changed!  One thing that hasn't changed is our company philosophy of providing our customers with the absolute best products, at the best price, and with amazing and personalized customer service.



Over the years several trends have come and gone throughout the beauty industry.  Where we once relied on magazines for our top beauty news, we now rely more on blogs and online articles.  Makeup trends continue to come and go..and this will never change.  The one beauty trend that will never go away is the desire to have young, healthy, glowing skin and the confidence that comes along with it.  That being said, I thought I would list some of my favorite beauty products that I simply can't go without and have amazing results.

  • Clarisonic - I purchased my very first Clarisonic in my mid-twenties (almost 15 years ago) and have been hooked ever since.  My husband laughs at me because I take it everywhere, even for just one night!  I saw such an immediate change in the look and feel of my skin that it was simply undeniable.  If you don't own one, buy one now!  Not only will it clean your face 3-5x better than washing with your hands alone, because of the deeper cleanse your other beauty products will work even better and penetrate deeper.  
  • Obagi Vitamin C Serum - Another product that I started using in my mid-twenties.  The days I forget, I can immediately notice my skin doesn't have that amazing glow.  If you're just starting out, go with the 10% and then you can work your way up.  
  • Elta MD Sun Care - I started using the sunscreen when my husband brought some home to try.  I was reluctant (I'll be honest, when I use something that works I typically don't switch) but I was SO happy I gave it a shot.  BEST SUNSCREEN EVER!  I personally use the Broad Spectrum SPF 30.  It's lightweight, doesn't break me out, and feels amazing!
  • gloMinerals gloLiquid Lips - I rarely wear lipgloss and never wear lipstick.  I simply can't stand the feel of a lipstick.  When I do wear anything, it's been gloLiquid Lips for over 10 years now.  I LOVE the Darling color.  It's neutral and goes with anything.  Practically everytime I wear it I receive compliments, but I suppose that could be because I am actually wearing makeup!
  • Billy Jealousy Salad Days Body Scrub - This bottle is huge, smell is amazing, and it's gentle enough to be used daily.  Leaves my skin so incredibly soft.  
  • gloMinerals Smoky Eye Kit - I was never able to achieve the smoky eye look until this amazing kit!  The directions made it so easy and allowed me to make it my own too.  
  • Avene Thermal Spring Water - I started out just using this to set my makeup and now use it for all kinds of things:  son's diaper rash, kids booboos, everyday after washing my face, and periodically throughout the day if my skin starts to feel a little dry.  

We wouldn't be where we are today without YOU!  Thank you!  Our customers are our #1 priority here at beautystoredepot and to thank you, we want to pass even more savings your way!  In celebration of our birthday, use code: CELEBRATE at checkout and receive 25% OFF!  Want more?  You got it!  If you haven't already signed up for our newsletter and email updates, sign up and receive a FREE GIFT with your next purchase!  And don't forget at beautystoredepot shipping is ALWAYS FREE!

Until next time, stay beautiful!

5 Easy Steps To Keep That Youthful Glow



Let’s be honest……a lot of aging is simply genetics, but there are things we all can do to slow down the aging process and to keep our skin healthy and glowing.  Even better?  These are simple things and they don’t have to break the bank.

  


  1. STAY HYDRATED:  This important step requires little except for time and effort.  We all get busy, but even just making it a point to drink a full glass of water before every meal can and will make a huge difference in your overall body performance AND your skin.  Just start carrying your Yeti or Tumbler full off water and keep it with you at all times.  You will be shocked how much more you drink by simply having it nearby.
  2. WASH YOUR FACE TWICE A DAY:   This step sounds easy, but many of us aren’t washing our face enough per day and/or not properly.  WASH YOUR HANDS PRIOR TO CLEANING YOUR FACE!  Some people simply never thought of this step, but it is a huge one!  If you are washing your face with dirty hands, you are simply defeating the purpose.  You also want to make sure you are using lukewarm water (not too hot and not too cold), using the correct cleanser for your skin type, rinsing cleanser thoroughly, and (in my opinion) using some sort of cleansing brush.  They remove dirt and debris 3-5x better than washing with your hands and many also come with anti-aging massage settings.
  3. USE A VITAMIN CVitamin C has been proven time and time again through research to be an amazing anti-aging fighter.  Not only can it prevent issues from arising with its antioxidant benefits, but it also leads to better hydration, evening out skin tone, revitalizing skin surface, and keeping your skin younger….longer!  I prefer a serum that I use after washing and before my sunscreen, but there are a ton of selections to choose from.  I have personally seen the difference in a dear friend who started using a Vitamin C and sunscreen combo years ago.  She looks years younger than she did prior to beginning the regiment!  
  4. USE A SUNSCREEN....EVERYDAY!:   I am so thankful for my mother in law telling me to start wearing sunscreen daily when I was in my 20’s.  It has saved my skin and I definitely see the difference in how I have aged versus many friends who still do not wear a sunscreen daily.  Sun exposure (even just driving in the car) over time WILL AGE YOU so simply put it on in the morning under your make up or buy a tinted sunscreen or buy a makeup with sunscreen.  There are so many options that there’s definitely a perfect fit for everyone’s skin type and routine.
  5. GET ENOUGH SLEEPI could write an entire blog on how sleep deprivation effects your skin.  The smallest things effect proper sleep too…..from making sure you aren’t using devices right before bed, taking some deep breaths to calm your body, too harsh of sheets damaging skin, bags under eyes, breakouts, dehydrated skin….the list goes on and on!  Make an effort to get your 8 hours of proper sleep and you will not only see a difference in your entire body, but also your skin.


I know some of you are overwhelmed by the idea of having to add more products to your routine, but DON’T BE!  We are here to help and below are a few links to get you started.  Don’t forget you can also always call us and speak to one of our courteous professionals.


If you’re searching for the perfect cleanser, you need to first know your skin type (normal, oily, dry, combo).

  • Normal Skin Cleanser:  My personal favorite is Brave Soldier Clean Skin.  It lasts forever and is only $18!
  • Dry Skin Cleanser:  If you happen to have sensitive skin along with dryness, then definitely check out Avene.
  • Oily Skin Cleanser:  With oily skin it is even more important to make sure you are washing your face AM and PM to remove the access oil and debris that can lead to breakouts.
  • Combination Skin Cleanser:  I have spoken to many customers that struggle with finding the perfect cleanser.  Often times it is the addition of another product (like a moisturizer) that is needed in order to achieve the optimal result.
