NeoCell Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Chews Review & Giveaway (Ends 9/28)

neocell beauty bursts
I believe that beautiful skin comes from the inside out. The things we eat, drink and the products we put on our skin all play a part in how our skin looks and feels. If you’re getting a little older, like me (*ahem*) you may be starting to notice some changes in your face. I am sadly noticing some little lines here and there and maybe a some dark circles under the eyes. While I try to eat healthy, there’s only so much a gal can do on her own. When I was offered the chance to try NeoCell Beauty Bursts I jumped at the chance as I had heard great things about them. They were featured in Glamour Magazine after all.

These chews deliver high absorption beauty nutrients in the form of a chew. Each chew contains Collagen Type 1 & 3 which is the body’s beauty protein & strengthens skin, hair & nails.  Also in the list of ingredients is Hyaluronic Acid is know as “Nature’s Moisturizer” for skin hydration.  Lastly, in the chews you will find Vitamin C, which  is essential to boosting collagen in the skin. These chews are gluten, soy and palm oil free and they are all natural and delicious.

I chose the Chocolate Mint flavor, but they also offer a Fruit  Punch flavor. One bag holds 60 soft chews which is a one month supply. I was taking it two times per day. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. I didn’t find it hard to remember to take it because it was pretty good and it was kind of filling at that. Each chew is 40 calories, so it’s not an overindulgent snack. Overall, I was happy with the results. I forgot to take a before picture, so I can’t really notice if my face changed at all, but my skin does feel and look healthy after using them for a month. My bag of Beauty Chews is now empty and I am definitely going to be heading over to GNC for more.

Buy it: Head over here and find a store that carries Beauty Bursts near you.

Win it: One of you will win a bag of Beauty Bursts so that you can experience the difference for yourself.  Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Clean bums and coupons @riteaid and @Cottonelle #LetsTalkBums #sp

cottonelle
Disclosure: Thank you to Cottonelle for sponsoring this post and keeping my bum clean!

So, this is a bit out of my comfort zone, but today I am going to talk about bums with you. Clean bums that is. At our house, we have started a two-step wet & dry process with our bathroom routine. The concept is simple but genius. Not only do you wipe, but you also wash with Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths, which help you experience a more confident clean.

I just restocked our supply of Cottonelle products at Rite Aid (with a coupon, of course) and set up the two step system in our main bathroom. The Cottonelle Clean Care TP is two-ply and is strong and pretty effective on it’s own, but when paired with the Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths it’s like a tag team of awesome clean freshness. This is especially helpful with the kids, who aren’t always as effective at having clean bums when left to their own devices.

You might say, “that all sounds awesome, but are those wipey things safe for our septic system?” Indeed, they are. The Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths feature SafeFlush Technology, so they not only offer you a confident clean but also start to break down immediately after flushing.

What do you say? Are you ready to try the two-step process with Cottonelle? If yes, then head over here to get a coupon good for $1 off your purchase of Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths and Cottonelle Clean Care toilet paper at Rite Aid. You will need to watch a 30 second video, and at the end you will be able to login to get your coupon. Once you try it, come back and tell me how you like the wet & dry system.

Madison Reed: Fall Hair Color Tips and 50% Off Hair Color Code

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Fall is just around the corner, good things are coming; autumn leaves, crisp refreshing air, pumpkin lattes…  A new rich, deep hue for you!  Here are some tips from Madison Reed for when you are getting ready to go darker.

Madison Reed Hair Color

1. Put Your Pigment Back

When going lighter for summer, pigments are stripped from the hair. This could be done purposely by lightening, highlights, or bleach, or it could be something natural that happens from sun exposure or from taking a dip in the pool. So, if pigments were taken out, we need to put them back in to go darker. This would be a great time to be a red head before eventually settling on a brunette shade to wow!

2. Keep Your Skin Tone in Mind

Adding tones to your locks is a lovely way to make your color rich and vibrant. But are you a cool or a warm skin tone? Generally people with cooler undertone like to wear silver jewelry and look great in cool colors like blue and white. Tones like mahogany, ash, and violet will look awesome on you!  People with warmer undertones find that gold looks best on them and can wear yellows and cream colors with ease. Reds, golds and copper look great on warm tones.

3. Go One Shade Lighter to Start

It is much easier to go darker than it is to go lighter. Choose a shade in the tonal family that you want and go one shade lighter. You just may end up loving the results, if not it’s a quick fix to go a bit darker on the next round.

4. Keep Your Ends in Mind

The summer tends to put a little bit of wear and tear on our hair with all the sun, swimming and fun. This makes our ends more porous, which means it wants to drink that color up. When coloring your hair darker it is important to keep this in mind. Application is key! Start darkening hair at the root and leave in for optimal gray coverage, once this has had time to process start combing color down to your mid-lengths and ends to finish the process. The ends don’t need as much time.

 5. Use Color-Safe Shampoo

It is important to take care of your color even after the process. Don’t wash that beautiful color down the drain. Color-safe shampoo’s are made to be gentle, have extra moisturizer, and keep your color vibrant. Try Madison Reed’s Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set–it even has natural UV protection to keep the sun’s rays from dulling down your color.

Right now get 50% off your first purchase at Madison-Reed.com with the code FALLHAIRCOLOR. If you haven’t tried Madison Reed hair color yet, you really should check into it for 50% off. That’s an awesome deal. Click here to see my review.
