Tips To Achieving Glowing, Smooth Skin In The Winter Months


Tips To Achieving Glowing, Smooth Skin In The Winter Months by barbies beauty bits

While the weather outside may be frightful, this doesn’t mean your makeup and skin need to be as well.  During these cold winter months, our skin can sure be affected by these blistering cold winds. So today, I wanted to share with you a product that can help you to have that radiant beauty, even in the winter months.

Dry, itchy skin affects a lot of us and can be most prevalent during this time of year- when the humidity and temperature drops-making our skin particularly vulnerable to dryness and cracking. That is why it is important to take extra special care of skin during the winter, as no one wants to apply makeup to their skin when it is dry and flaky, highlighting our imperfections.

The Solution 
Boy do I have a product for you that can not only smooth the surface imperfections for an incredibly bright complexion, but it also includes rejuvenating ingredients such as retinol and milk protein 20 that condition, balance, and protect the skin from environmental stresses.


Studio Gear PRIME OBJECTIVE SKIN PERFECTING FACE PRIMER Review by barbies beauty bits

So, what is this product? It is Studio Gear’s PRIME OBJECTIVE SKIN PERFECTING FACE PRIMER.  I’ve been a big fan of this companies makeup brushes and that is why I was excited to try out this primer and just in time for the holidays!

With these temperature dips, my skin has sure been craving more moisture and by me adding this primer into my regimen I could really seal in and retain hydration, which sure is a plus.

The PRIME OBJECTIVE is a silicone based face primer that acts to “re-touch”, or visually diminish, imperfections in the surface texture of the skin. PRIME OBJECTIVE contains a sustained release liposome system with retinol that can help support cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a milk protein complex that can help to balance and protect the skin against environmental stresses. The “skin perfecting” effect of this state-of-the-art formula is further enhanced with optical diffusers.

Look For Key Ingredients

Fragrance Free
Another great thing about this product is that it is Paraben-Free and Fragrance-Free, which is essential when are face is exposed to these frigid temperatures as products with fragrances in them can also lead to additional irritation and dryness, which can result in premature wrinkles!

Retinol
I was very excited to find out that this product also has retinol in it.  You see, there are tons of damaging elements that are skin is exposed to every day, like dust, pollutants, sweat, even makeup, all of which can age the skin. Retinol (Vitamin A) is a useful product that helps diminish these signs of aging and visibly contribute to improving the appearance of your skin.

best facial primers by Studio Gear and barbies beauty bits

Makeup Application
Aside from the skincare aspect, this facial primer helps to prep the skin for makeup applications. I’m sure we’d all agree that dry flaking skin is a nightmare to dry to apply makeup. 

If you follow my blog you know my thoughts on primers, they are a must.  Without them, your makeup will sit in your pores, create false wrinkles, while leaving a dull appearance...period! On the other hand, when you do use a primer, you'll find that your foundation will have a much smoother finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines and this primer has really help keep my facial makeup in place, while adding that extra glow just in time for the holiday season!

Win A Michael Todd Beauty Soniclear And More

Win A Michael Todd Beauty Soniclear And More by barbies beauty bits

What better way to celebrate the holiday season than by showing your skin some skincare love!  And Michael Todd Beauty is helping you to treat your skin right with this awesome giveaway, including three sonic devices for three different people!

What Are The Prizes?

A Bit About The Prizes

The Soniclear Elite
Makeup always goes on best when you have a clean slate to work with, and Michael Todd Beauty has the BEST cleansing device in the world, The Soniclear Elite!  The Soniclear is the world’s first antimicrobial sonic skin cleansing system.  Offering 10x better cleansing than hands alone, making this the Rolls Royce of sonic cleansing brushes!

Dermatologist recommended, the Soniclear Sonic cleansing brushes will give you softer, brighter, smoother skin in just one use.  Producing up to 300 sonic movements per second, each of the brush bristles acts like a micro boom sweeping away makeup, dead skin, build up, clearing the pores and thoroughly cleansing the skin.

The SonicBlend
The SonicBLEND is the first of its kind makeup brush to use sonic technology to apply makeup. Better than rotating makeup brushes, the SonicBLEND applies makeup flawlessly at up to 400 micro-movements per second. This makeup brush easily sweeps on foundation, blush, contour, highlight, setting powder and bronzer without lines or streaks for a natural looking airbrushed-like results every time. PLUS, the SonicBLEND comes with built-in protection against microbial contamination, so the brushes stay cleaner fresher longer.

The SonicBLEND also provides better coverage, so you use less makeup (which means you save money on makeup, yeah).  Additionally, this sonic makeup brush can help improve the overall healthy look of your complexion by minimizing the possibility of clogging pores as well as irritation from rubbing and stretching the skin which can occur with traditional makeup application.

The Soniceraser Pro
Last but not least, as honestly, this is an outstanding product if you are using skincare products, such as creams, serums, etc.  We use these for a reason and if you could get better results, wouldn’t you want it?  I know I sure would, and that is exactly what the Michael Todd Beauty Soniceraser pro does.  This device utilizes a next generation 3-in-1 technology called the Triplex Infusion™ to help the beneficial ingredients in your skincare products break through the skin’s outer barrier and reach the deeper layers of the skin. Hence, when using this device, you will get more out of your anti-aging serums and creams, instead of wasting it on your fingertips.

younger looking skin with the Michael Todd Beauty Soniceraser pro by barbies beauty bits

How Does It Work?
It uses sonic oscillations at more 30,000 times per minute. As well as Ionic and thermal infusion.  The Ionic produces negative electrons that attract skincare products to push and pull them deeper into the epidermis. The thermal portion helps by gradually warming to 107F, which is the ideal temperature to open the pores so that they absorb more of the product! 

So wanna win one of these for yourself, go here to register

Tis The Season To Glam Up Your Beauty Routine


Tis The Season To Glam Up Your Beauty Routine by Barbies Beauty Bits and Glossybox

Need a little help with your holiday beauty look, well GlossyBox is here to help with their Holiday Limited Edition Box!  December's holiday box includes six full-size products worth over $184; now that is a gift! This box of holiday cheer contains skincare products, glitzy lipstick, eyeshadow, brow definer, and a healing cleanser that will help you to glam up your beauty routine this holiday season!

Beauty tips for the holiday season by barbies beauty bits

So let’s dive in!

Bow To The Brow
The holidays are a perfect time to show off your eyes, and your eyebrows are a key to this. Eyebrows form a frame around your eyes taking them from Plain Jane to Glamorous Brow, in a matter of minutes and the RETRO BROW – PRIME & EXTEND DUO, by NutraLuxe MD, does exactly this.  I love this product as it is an all-in-one-product.  It includes a pigmented primer that acts as a holding base and when fused with the cellulose fibers, amplifies the appearance of your natural eyebrow into full dramatic brows.

eyebrows for the holiday by barbies beauty bits

How to use:
• Step 1: Apply primer to each eyebrow.
• Step 2: Immediately follow with fibers on top of the primed area.
• Step 3: Finish with another coat of primer to lock in the fibers.
*Repeat steps 1-3 for a more dramatic look.

Eyes 
Now that you have framed your eyes, you are ready for the star of the night, your eyeshadow.  This month’s Glossybox Dome shadow comes in a variety of colors, and I was happy to get the burgundy color in my box as this color is a favorite of mine.  This eyeshadow has a metallic finish, perfect for the holiday season!

Add A Glow To Your Skin
There were three skincare products in this box, first is the SKIN & CO ROMA KIN & CO 'Truffle Therapy' Cleansing Oil.  I’ve seen this product at Nordstrom, so to get this in my Glossybox was wonderful.  I love that it is paraben free and boy is this fancy as it has truffle extract. While it is strong enough to remove your makeup, it is gentle on the skin for cleansing.

How to use: To achieve the full benefits of the cleansing oil, shake the bottle gently to mix the two phases. Saturate a cotton pad to gently and effectively remove your makeup and impurities.

skin care tips for the holidays by barbies beauty bits

Now it is time to let it snow, glow with  Babor masterpiece ampoule set.  Low humidity and cooler temperatures can leave your skin dry, flaky, and itchy. So having a product to protect your skin from drying out in the winter is a must.

This skincare duo pairs two types of ampoules to instantly repair and protect dry or dehydrated skin.

Daytime: Use Hydra Plus Active Fluid to get an instant moisture boost.  This product has hyaluronic acid which is a premier hydrating ingredient for skin helping to smooth out your complexion leaving it feeling softer, smoother, with a radiant, hydrated glow!

Nighttime: Give your skin a boost with black truffle and black seaweed.  The active night fluid helps to regenerate your skin overnight!

Last but not least is the AVANCÉ+ INVISIBLE PORES NIGHT DETOX SERUM.  This product has multiple benefits as well; it is kind of like a nighttime primer for your skin!

primer tips by barbies beauty bits

If you follow my blog you know my thoughts on primers, they are a must.  Without them, your makeup will sit in your pores, create false wrinkles, while leaving a dull appearance...period! On the other hand, when you do use a primer, you'll find that your foundation will have a much smoother finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines. While this is not a substitute for a makeup primer, it really helps to prep your skin for better makeup application.

This serum has some Anti-bacterial /Anti-inflammatory action to help minimizes your pores. It also detoxifies and encourages collagen synthesis & promotes cellular renewal.

Lips
Make sure your lips are mistletoe ready with bad Medina shimmery lipstick. Lips with a bit of glitz, perfect for a kissable pout!

The Best Tips To Better Looking Skin


The Best Tips To Better Looking Skin With Michael Todd Beauty And Barbie's Beauty Bits

When you see someone with beautiful skin, do you wonder how they keep their skin looking so radiant and healthy? Was it surgery, good health, their diet or a slathering of some great skincare products?

Well, to be honest, it is probably a combination of most of those, with surgery being the least common.

You see, great looking skin involves a healthy lifestyle and great skin-care habits enabling you to produce glowing, radiant looking skin. Hence,  what you put in your body is equally as important as what you put on it.

So, if you want the best tips to better looking skin continue reading! 


Maintain A Balanced Diet 
While eating some of those prepackage foods may be convenient, they are not always best for your skin.  Too much-refined foods, such as sugar, or that with a lot of added salt can drain the body of essential vitamins and minerals. This, in turn, encourages wrinkles and premature aging.  Instead, you want to eat foods that are rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, such as fruits, vegetables, fish, and nuts.  Nuts like walnuts are great for the skin and fruits like Papaya are also fantastic!

How your diet effects your skin by barbies beauty bits

Exercise
Working out brings more oxygen to your skin cells, leaving you with skin that's nourished and firmer. Exercise also helps to reduce stress.

Relax
As most of us know, stress shows up in our face, which can potentially aggravate skin conditions and cause premature aging.  A recent visit to my dermatologist also confirmed that physical stress could produce more cortisol,  a hormone in the body that can break down collagen and elastin, ultimately leading to wrinkles! So, find your zen time!
The importance of beauty sleep and your skin by barbies beauty bits

Beauty Sleep
Beauty sleep is real! The goal is to have 6-8 hours of sleep a night as lacking sleep can cause a lot of adverse effects on your skin, like dark circles under the eyes, bags, and that darn stress hormone can get elevated hurting your skin's quality! Oh, and don't forget to take your makeup off before you go to bed as makeup can clog your pores which can lead to irritation and blemishes!

Use Natural Skincare Products
The most revolutionary skin-care products today merge nature with science. For example, Michael Todd Beauty, this brand represents a synergy between science and the certified organic plants and fruits. The result is a unique skincare experience that enhances the complexion for years to come without the use of potentially harmful ingredients so common in many other brands.

Look At ALL The Ingredients In Your Skincare Products

While the packaging might be pretty, what comes on the inside is key!  Synthetic fragrances and other harmful ingredients can aggravate the skin and lead to premature aging.  Hence you want to stick with a skin care line that pays attention to the ingredients they add and once again Michael Todd Beauty is great at adding only the best organic ingredients to their skincare products.  The fragrances they use are real, no synthetic fragrances or colors are ever added to a Michael Todd Beauty product.  Instead, they use natural aromatic extracts scents that are much kinder to the skin.

Ingredients like…
Minerals: Charcoal and Kaolin Clay for their purifying properties.

Oils: Refreshing essential oils such as olives, jojoba, neem, seabuckthorn seed and tea tree are also used.

Butters: Altra-rich moisturizing butters like cupuacu, shea, and mango
 … all in which are excellent for the skin!

Organic Skincare products for Better Looking Skin With Michael Todd Beauty And Barbie's Beauty Bits

Another key component to a beneficial skincare product line, like Micheal Todd Beauty,  is to make sure that there are also anti-aging ingredients added, as simply rubbing a piece of fruit on your face isn't going cut it!

The success of Michael Todd Beauty line is that they combine the right blend of organic and natural ingredients and specific minerals, peptides, EGF, DMAE, beneficial acids with other extraordinary anti-aging and skin clarifying ingredients to help promote balance, protect the skin’s youthful look, giving us a healthier more radiant looking complexion.

5 Ways To Rev Up Your Fall Beauty Routine, With Glossybox


5 Ways To Rev Up Your Fall Beauty Routine, With Glossybox and Barbie's Beauty Bits

Fall is upon us and with the change of season also comes time to change up your BEAUTY ROUTINE! And Glossybox is helping us to look FALLtastic, with October’s box!

This Glossybox included some skin loving treats to helps us pamper our skin as well as some products that allowed me to bring my Autumn on!

So, if you want to find out how you to can get your Autumn on continue reading!

Glossybox October 2016 review by barbies beauty bits

Skincare
The last thing we want is to have our skin look as try as leaves so introducing some skincare products that can soothe and relieve your skin is a must!

Unani Il-luminate Milk Cleanser

Adding a daily cleanser that isn’t that harsh on your face is skintastic.  With the change of humidity in the fall months, the last thing you want to do is to apply something on your skin that could be potentially irritating! And this gentle cleanser contains nutritious natural oils that purify and protect the skin by removing impurities as well as makeup, leaving the skin ever so soft while restoring its elasticity.
Full Size: $18

Masque Bar by Look Beauty Lemon Essence Sheet Mask
As featured in Allure magazine, Look Beauty Face Sheet Masks are Luxurious enough to be mistaken for a pricier product.  These masks combine ingredients to make your skin feel smoother and moist after one application. Furthermore, the cool air can also leave our skin less hydrated, so using a product like the Look Beauty Sheet Masks, can provide hydration as well, which is the key to smoother, rejuvenated skin.

This mask blended some key ingredients like lemon extract, collagen, and Vitamin E to help purify, refine and soothe the skin!

These masks come in a box of 3 with a variety of options.  I am a big fan of these masks, depending on your issue there is a skin solution for you!

Masque Bar by Look Beauty Lemon Essence Sheet Mask by barbies beauty bits

Aromessence Néroli Hydrating Oil Serum
Ohh La La, this 100% natural serum oil from Paris was fantastic! Ingredients are what makes one product’s success stand out from another and having a skincare product that is free from artificial coloring is a plus in my book.  It's important to stay away from synthetic dyes, as this can cause some skin irritation. This serum is concentrated in hazelnut botanical oil and enriched with essential oils of neroli (one of the most expensive essential oils around), sandalwood and petitgrain.  The serum moisturizes the skin for hours for a more radiant complexion.

BONUS: Did you know that it takes 1000 pounds of orange blossom flowers to produce one pound of neroli oil? I sure didn’t.

Give Your Locks Some Love
In the summer months, we have put our hair and scalp through the wringer by exposing them to chlorine, salt water, and the hot summer sun for that sun-kissed highlight.  And because of this, you may be experiencing some dry brittle hair and some breakage!

 OGX Anti-Hair Fallout Niacin3 + Caffeine Root Stimulator Spray by barbies beauty bits and glossybox

But fret no more as Glossybox included a great hair product by OGX that can help give your summer damaged strands the strength they need to stand their ground against daily damage and breakage.

Because of the limited sun exposure in the fall, this is an excellent time to treat and stimulate your scalp with OGX Anti-Hair Fallout Niacin3 + Caffeine Root Stimulator Spray.

This potent blend of niacin3 + Caffeine, Alpha Hydroxy Acid & natural DHT blocker, encourages a healthy scalp environment and helps prevent hair fallout caused by breakage.
Full Size: $8

Makeup
It is time to swap out some of those corals and pinks for some deep reds and burgundy. And one of the simplest ways to get a pop of color on your lips and cheeks is with the Emile Makeup Lip & Cheek tint.  While they say, it is versatile and complimentary to any skin tone, you do need to be careful when applying, as it does dry quicker than you think, so blend out soon.
Full Size: $19

Change up your makeup routine in the fall by barbies beauty bits and glossybox

So, there you have it beauties, some great ways to rev up your Fall Beauty routine with October's 2016 GlossyBox.

Want to get whisked away with your own GLOSSYBOX, well you can by getting your very own subscription. The cost for a GLOSSYBOX subscription is anywhere from $17.50 a month to $21, depending on which payment plan you choose!
