One of my favorite things to do on Valentine’s Day (or any holiday, for that matter) is treat myself.
Spending some time lounging in a facial mask and using products that make my skin feel healthy and hydrated usually does the trick. I’m also a firm believer in the fact that the foods you eat make an impact on not only how good you feel, but how good you look. Needless to say, the Monday after Super Bowl Sunday I was looking and feeling pretty rough. This Valentine’s Day, treat yo’self and spend some time taking care of number one.
My dear friend Deanne with Rodan + Fields sent me a “Glow on the Go” mini facial kit to try out, and is offering each reader who takes the Solution Tool Quiz the same thing (plus, one lucky winner will get an eye cream!) Keep reading for my feedback on the products, more info on how to get your free mini facial, AND a skin glow smoothie recipe.
The kit includes:
- Microdermabrasion Paste – a sugar and salt scrub that polishes skin with vitamin C and vitamin E. I applied the paste to damp skin for a gentler exfoliation (you can also use on dry skin if you want more) and it left my skin feeling super clean. It also smells great!
- Redefine Night Renewing Serum – a blue capsule filled with a blend of peptides and retinol to improve skin’s texture and firmness while reducing the appearance of wrinkles. The serum has a velvety, smooth texture and I found that it helped calm redness and irritation too.
- Redefine Lip Renewing Serum – a silver capsule rich with peptides and antioxidants designed to help lips retain natural moisture. These are SO necessary for me in the winter (not like it’s freezing here, but still – my lips get dry!) I highly recommend these little problem solvers. Your valentine will thank you!
Deanne also threw in R+F’s Mineral Peptides SPF 20, which I’ve been subbing for my usual powder lately to prevent shine and get some extra UV protection. I also tried the Multi-Function Eye Cream, which combats puffiness and dark circles while brightening the eye area, and noticed a bit of a difference after a few days.
Since you’re treating your skin so nicely this V-day, might as well throw in some love for the bod! This skin glow smoothie recipe is full of nutrients that will keep you looking and feeling great.
- 1/2 avocado
- Handful of blueberries
- Handful of raspberries
- A couple of dates
- 1 banana
- 2 tsp flax seeds
- Cacao nibs for topping
- And of course, water
Directions are super easy – just combine the ingredients in your blender, and save the cacao nibs for topping. This smoothie is packed with Omega-3s, antioxidants and vitamins A, B and C!
