It's Time to Tan!

Spring is here and Summer is right around the corner!  As soon as the temperature starts to rise, I begin staring at my white legs and arms realizing it's TIME TO TAN!




Here at beautystoredepot we are advocates for healthy skin and do not recommend sunbathing or tanning beds, but .... no worries because there are a ton of safe options that actually work.  Here is a list of a few of my favorites!

For a full list of all of our self tanning products click HERE

A few quick reminders to achieve your perfect at home tan:

  • Always exfoliate before tanning!
  • Remember to apply a small amount of lotion to elbow and knees prior to applying self tan products
  • Be cautious of over applying around knees, elbows, and ankles
  • Always apply INSTANT tanners in small amounts and areas so you can be mindful of possible streaking
Until next time....stay beautiful!

Hello Lashes!

Have you ever wanted to wake up and have amazing lashes without any makeup?  Me too!!....but, I was always hesitant to purchase any product that I had to place anywhere close to my eyes.  With allergies and contacts, it can often be difficult just to get my contacts in much less add some mascara ontop of already red, dry, agitated eyes.  I did FINALLY give it a try and I am SO happy that I did!



I started using GrandeLASH about 2.5 months ago.  The application is incredibly easy!  You literally just take the brush out and apply it directly to your upper lash line once or twice a day.  Even better?  I haven't had any discomfort or additional eye issues with use....thank goodness!  I try to apply GrandeLASH everyday, but there have been a few times that I wasn't able to. Good news is that I am still seeing drastic results. Results will vary and I am a few months from 40, so it did take me longer to see results than what a younger gal may see (this is also advised in the product information).  I am thankful I didn't just give up on the product because I am very pleased with the results.




GrandLASH is now a permanent part of my daily regiment and I hope to continue to see more length and fullness.

Until next time....stay beautiful!

Fancy Feet Without The Salon Cost

Before I had my beautiful kiddos, I was able to manage to get either a bi-weekly or at least monthly manicure and pedicure.  Now, however, the time just doesn't seem to be there and I can find much better ways to spend my $50-75 than on a single nail service for myself.

Time, however, is still an issue and I know every busy Mama can relate!  Fortunately, I have discovered a few products that have made my feet much more happy and presentable....even better? Cost effective too!



I had been eyeing the Footlogix Double Sided File for a few weeks and dropped the hint to my husband for a stocking stuffer.  He delivered and I couldn't be happier!  This is my first stainless steel file and they are ah-mazing!  It leaves my feet smooth and it's so much easier to clean.  I am now making it a priority to use the file once or twice a week and the results have been fantastic!

After my first use I remembered I also had One Minute Manicure under my bathroom sink and thought "Why not?"  I used a little on both feet before I went to bed and then applied Cuccio Naturale Vanilla Bean and Sugar Blend.  This lotion is fantastic for your feet since it's fast drying but incredibly hydrating.  The results?  My calluses are vastly improved and no more cracks anywhere! Now if I could just manage to polish straight!

You can purchase all three of these products for under $65!  That's the average price of a spa pedicure with a salt or sugar scrub, but you will have enough product for multiple pedicures and the foot file should last a very long time!  It only takes a small amount of the One Minute Manicure AND don't forget to use it on your hands too!  This stuff is magical and has been one of my all time faves for years!  I even caught my husband using it the other day.

Until next time, stay beautiful!
