When you have the essentials for great makeup, you can be confident in your skills.  You can find a plethora of makeup essentials from IT Cosmetics.  With products to benefit skin, lips and more you can build a core collection to keep your makeup on point.  These are a few of my IT Cosmetics favorites!

IT Cosmetics lip glossThe Vitality Lip Blush Hydrating Gloss Stain is a must-have product!  If you shy away from lip products because of the less-than-hydrating feel, this lip gloss is the answer.  Honestly, I have never felt a gloss that is as buttery and smooth as this one.  The formula includes nine butters and oils and you can tell when you wear it.  Even with all the hydrating properties it still has a lightweight feel.  My favorite part is that it minimizes the appearance of fine lines making my lips look fuller.   Available in 4 shades.

Over the years, I have come to realize that skincare is a real passion of mine.  I enjoy discovering new brands and products to add to my favorites.  We were contacted by Eslor and received their entire line of skincare products to test!  Eslor skincare was developed by a pharmacologist who wanted to create a natural based skin care line for his wife.  What a lovely gift!  After testing Eslor, I found four products that I really enjoyed.

Eslor skin care
The Soothing Refiner & Cleanser

This is a very light gel cleanser that is able to deeply cleanse and still keep skin very hydrated. With good ingredients like Aloe Vera Gel, Sage Leaves Extract, Carrot Extract and Rosemary Extract this cleanser leaves my skin with a new radiance.  A good cleanser is the first step to healthy skin.  I used this cleanser twice daily on my oily skin with nice results.

The Firming Eye Cream

A super silky and light cream that plumps and renews the under-eye area.  I believe an eye cream is a step that every woman should incorporate into her routine.  I actually wish that I had started using eye cream in my 20s as a preventative step.  If you are also starting late that’s ok too…better late than never!  The key ingredients include Aloe Vera Gel, Mango Butter, and Ginseng Extract.  I used this eye cream twice daily after cleansing and thought it was very nice for brightening and renewing the under-eye area.

Chlorophyll Lifting Mask

This lifting mask is a bright green gel meant to gently purify and enhance the complexion.  I always enjoy a facial mask a few times a week to solve any skin issues and as a way to relax.  Key ingredients of Aloe Vera Gel, Algae Extract, and Orange Peel Extract help make this mask a real treat for my oily skin.  I use it twice weekly, applying a thin film, relaxing for 10 minutes, then rinsing.  Afterwards, I am left with fresher skin!

Comforting Mask

The comforting mask is a thicker green clay mask meant to smooth the skin.  My skin is oily and I find that the Kaolin clay in this mask is great for helping to clear my pores.  Other key ingredients include Seaweed Extracts, Aloe Vera Gel, and Avocado Oil.  I use this mask about once a week, concentrating on my T-zone.  I love the healthier look of my skin afterwards!

You can find the full range of Eslor skin care products at Eslor.com.  Give them a try and discover your favorites!

Not every mom has the time or funds to get a salon blowout. Even if I did have the time and extra dollars I am probably WAY too picky to let someone else style my hair that often! I received several Redken products to create a DIY blowout from start to finish. Since I have a major head of thick hair, a blowout is a necessity for any style. If I let my hair air dry with no help from product it is normally a mess of wavy frizz. Even if you like to volumize or curl your hair, a blowout should be your first step. Use this guide to create a stunning DIY blowout at home!

Redken Hair Products

Start with the right shampoo and conditioner like Redken Diamond Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. Right away after my shampoo I could easily run my fingers through my hair. This shampoo and conditioner provide amazing hydration and shine. The oils in this duo rock!
DIY Blowout Step 1

Next, blot hair with a towel to remove excess oil. Never rub a towel over your hair, it creates frizz and causes breakage.

DIY Blowout Step 2

Then use two or three drops of Redken Diamond Oil, warm it in your hands and apply from middle of hair to ends. Avoid the roots or hair could look greasy. This silicone-free oil does wonders, smoothing cuticles and protecting hair from styling damage.

DIY Blowout Step 3

Next, boost your roots with Redken Guts 10 Root Volumizing Spray. Lift up the roots and apply evenly section by section.
Then pre-dry, taking most of the moisture out of your hair.

DIY Blowout Step 4

Next, finish drying hair section by section, using your brush to direct hair upward following the hair with your hairdryer root to ends. Apply Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Spray to set each section. This spray allows hold that you can still work with.  Follow these steps for each section of hair.

DIY Blowout Step 5

Last, add volume at front by lifting top roots with fingers, blast with cool air to hold. Complete the look with a bit more Fashion Work 12 all over.

DIY Blowout Finished Look

The finished look is the perfect DIY blowout!  With Redken products my hair turned out soft, shiny, and I achieved a style that had hold and didn’t look limp. Locate a salon near you to purchase these Redken products.

Will you try this DIY blowout method at home?

Recently, I sought out the best in Chicago spas and discovered several gems! As a mom of two, a spa visit is a genuine escape, time that is just for me. Me-time is a rare occurrence in the life of any mother. With spa treatments that cater to the mind, body, and soul, you will find one that speaks to you. When you do, I urge you to take the plunge and make that appointment. These are four of my favorite Chicago spas and what makes each one unique!

Kohler Waters Spa ChicagoThe spacious Kohler Waters Spa in Chicago is the best choice for those looking for a total spa experience. The therapeutic benefits of water are the focus here. As a Pisces, this spa felt like home to me! The menu of services is extensive and includes massage therapies, energy therapies, facials, hydrotherapy treatments and more.

Upon arrival I was guided to the locker rooms which are stocked with all the amenities and fabulous Kohler showers. After donning slippers and a luxurious robe, I enjoyed the large relaxation area with chaise lounges, snacks, and drinks. With many staff members on hand, Kohler Waters Spa definitely has a handle on making guests feel at ease and relaxed.

After a few minutes of peaceful reflection, I was escorted to enjoy the Citrus Reviver, one of the newest hydrotherapy body treatments. I enjoyed an ultra-pampering full body exfoliation scrub which used cool elements, all while under warm Vichy shower sprays. If there were one spa treatment in the world I wish I could recreate at home, this is it! There is something about the cool scrub under a warm spray that is just undeniably soothing. The 50-minute service ends with a cool-stone eye treatment, facial massage, and citrus moisturizer. Bliss! Afterwards, I headed to enjoy a shower and a lengthy visit to the Circle of Tranquility Room. I went from the whirlpool, to the steam room and back again.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT KOHLER:

All spa treatments include use of the Circle of Tranquility!  You could visit for a pedicure and stay for the whirlpool, plunge pool, steam room, and sauna, utilizing it for as long as you want.  This perk alone has me already planning my next visit to Kohler Waters Spa!  I’d love to try one of the Kohler Bathing Treatments on a future visit.

Azul Holistic Spa Chicago

Azul Holistic Spa in Chicago is a prime choice for those looking for a more intimate setting. The Ayurvedic experience is the focus at Azul. Ayurvedic medicine promotes good health and is practiced through ritual and music, aromatic essential oils, herbs and teas. The services offered includes healing therapies, massage, facials, and more.

After a short wait, I was escorted to a modest locker room complete with robe, slippers and showers. Once I donned my robe, I made my way to the Meditation Room. This dimly lit room sets the tone for ultimate relaxation. This was one of my favorite parts of my visit to Azul. Just a few minutes later, my massage therapist lead me to get started on the Marma Point Massage. I was impressed with the method of this massage which promotes good blood flow by stimulating the marma points. Increasing blood flow through these areas, which can clear obstructions between muscles, nerves and brain. What this translated to for me was feeling a release of tension, stress, and worry.

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT AZUL:

After my massage, I was treated to a long chat about my specific issues discovered during my visit. My therapist even wrote out a “prescription” for an all natural healing drink and recipe for an at-home body treatment. Personalized service and attention to detail, combined with unique touches like the Meditation Room, make Azul Holistic Spa very memorable.

Jonathan Breitung Salon ChicagoThe expansive Jonathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa in Chicago is the premiere spot for those looking for experienced staff and impeccable service. No detail is too small and the focus is on truly personalized spa treatments at this stunning location. With a full service hair salon upstairs and spa down below, you will delight in the zen atmosphere. The owner, Jonathan, has taken great care noted in the Feng Shui he applied throughout. As I toured the spa and caught sight of Feng Shui accents like hidden coins I was intrigued. A believer in karma, I felt an instant connection to this spa! You will find an array of services available from facials, massage, and reflexology to mani/pedis and med spa treatments.

After my tour, I headed to slip into my spa robe and slippers. While lounging in the elegant spa lounge I was met by my aestheticism, Pamela, who escorted me to my facial with oxygen infusion treatment. After a double cleanse and a skin analysis, Pamela took great care to ask me about my skin.  With her experience she was quickly able to gauge my concerns. I was impressed that the facial was truly personalized to my issues, using methods and products tailored to my needs.  The oxygen infusion was probably my favorite part! Oxygen mixed with customized serums is piped through an airbrush-type system and is misted over the face. The oxygen pushes the products deep into the epidermis to plump, hydrate, and stimulate collagen. It felt amazing! Pamela went above and beyond to provide me with the perfect facial for my skin and left me with product recommendations for home as well.  I went home with clear pores and skin that was more hydrated and plump.   

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT JONATHAN BREITUNG:  

The knowledgeable staff and luxury atmosphere make this Jonathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa the perfect choice for skincare enthusiasts.

Truex Bluex Salon ChicagoThe lovely Truex Bluex Salon in Chicago is a large facility that includes a full service salon, nail services, laser treatments, permanent cosmetics, massage and more.

Upon entry, I was greeted by pleasant staff in a quiet environment. Led downstairs to the spa, I had the chance to change into my spa robe and slippers. I was quickly whisked away to my 60-minute massage. With the help of oils, my massage therapist worked out my stress during my full body massage. I was especially happy that he took my advice and worked the longest on my neck and shoulder area, a trouble spot for many years. I appreciated the tranquil background music and that my therapist was very efficient and calming. On my way home, I felt renewed and ready to take on the rest of the day!

WHY YOU SHOULD VISIT TRUEX BLUEX:

This full service salon offers it all.  The calming atmosphere, respectful and efficient staff make Truex Bluex Salon a great choice for those needing a quick hour away from it all.

If you live in Chicago or are planning a visit, I can recommend these spas for a mom’s mini-getaway!

Is your body ready for beach season?  How about those arms, not so sure?   Mama Mio’s award-winning products can whip your arms right into shape before Summer.  In just a few steps women of all ages can achieve super hero arms.  Get ready to feel extra confident in your favorite maxi dress, bikini, or tank top this year!

DSC05156The Mama Mio OMega Body Buff is an exfoliant to be used on dry skin right before heading into the shower.  Exfoliation is a must and a great foundation for fabulous-looking arms.  OMega Body Buff includes micro-ground pumice, sweet almond oil, aloe vera, chamomile and Vitamin E to both buff and soften the skin.

DSC05157Now that those arms are smoother and softer, the perfect second step to fab arms is the Mama Mio Skin Tight Toning Serum.  Massaging this serum on to skin helps to instantly tighten the arms.  Using the serum for at least 30 days could really show off the results of the Papaya Enzymes working with Hyaluronic Acid to plump and moisturize.

DSC05158The perfect final step to super hero arms?  Mama Mio OMega Super-rich Body Cream will basically be the icing on the cake of this “fab arms” regimen.  After exfoliating and using a tightening serum, it’s time to pack on the Omegas to nourish the skin and lock in the moisture.  This body cream tackles any sign of dry skin with Avocado Oil, Rosehip Seed Oil and more.  The Aloe Vera also gives an extra boost to calm and soothe skin.  Your arms may feel like heaven at this point!

Don’t blame us if you suddenly hear whispers like: “Wow, her arms look amazing! She’s someone’s mom?”.  You can thank us later!
