Fab Fit Fun!

 

My friend recently introduced me to FabFitFun and I am loving it! It is a subscription based box that includes full size beauty, wellness and fashion items that is sent four times a year with each season. I signed up as a member and my first box I received was the Winter box. Some of the highlights for me include the BB Dakota Poncho, 8 OTHER REASONS Nine Lives Choker and my adorable new mug that I use every day for tea.

The retail value of my first box is $388 and it cost me $49.95! I love the variety and quality of the goodies. Not to mention how much I look forward to receiving my box and unpacking it. I loved it so much I purchased the Editors box which I am loving as well.

If FabFitFun is something you are excited to try you can use the code WELCOME10 to get $10.00 off your first box. Click this link to receive your discount; WELCOME . It is just in time for the Spring Box which is coming soon! Let me know in the comments below if you have tried Fab fit fun and what your favorite items are!

Fall Skin Care Tips!

Hydrating B5 Gel

October is here! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year. The holidays, comfort foods and excuse to bring out my scarves. I am patiently waiting because apparently Southern California has not got the memo that summer is over. When the weather does begin to change, it is helpful to make some adjustments to our skin care routine. Below are a few helpful hits to transition your summer skin care to fall ready.

1. Treat Summer Sun Damage.

Post summer is a great time to begin exfoliating regularly again and treating yourself to a great facial treatment. If you spent a lot of time outdoors this summer try adding a antioxidant serum to help with sun damage.

Natural Lip Balm Coco-Mint

2. Protect Lips

As the colder months approach keep lips hydrated and protected from the dry weather. I like to layer my Simply Jess Lip Balm on top of my lipstick to protect and keep them nice and hydrated. Or simply wear it alone.

3. Upgrade Your Moisturizer

This is the time of year to update your moisturizer, one that is richer and more protecting. Or better yet you can add a super charged serum to your existing routine. I am in love with the SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. The combination of vitamin B5 along with hyaluronic acid makes the skin feel velvety and extremely hydrated without feeling heavy. This is a great product for any skin type and helps your existing moisturizer leave skin looking plumped up. I love it under make-up as well.

Do you switch up your regimen with the seasons? Let me know in the comments below. And Happy Fall!

 

NEW Lavender Lip Balm-It’s the BOMB!

 

Simply Jess is launching a new product, Coco-Lavender Lip Balm! This balm is all natural, super hydrating, calming and healing. This product is perfect for you if you have dry/chapped lips, sensitive skin (and can not tolerate peppermint oil) and love the scent of lavender!

My kids love this one, I use organic ingredients and nothing harsh. When I am wearing lipstick I use this on top for a nice glossy finish and it helps smooth out any dryness. If you give it a try please let me know what you think by leaving a comment on this post or in my Etsy Store. There is a limited supply so get yours today!

Thank you for supporting Simply Jess!

Pretty Threading Blowdry-Special Offer!

Threading is an ancient practice of removing facial hair that started in India over 5000 years ago and has been steadily gaining popularity here in the states. The technician uses a piece of thread to uplift and remove hair around eye brows and the lip area. When I started threading my eye brows about ten years ago there were not as many options in the south orange county area so I made the trek to Costa Mesa. Now there are threading salons popping up and I decided I wanted to try it out again.

A friend of mine suggested Pretty Threading in Mission Viejo and I loved my results! I visited their newest location in Rancho Santa Margarita this week, where they also offer Blow dry, make-up applications and Henna!

I love the salon decor and the staff was amazing. When I first sat down for my blowout I was given an Ipad to choose the look I wanted, there were five styles to choose from. The salon uses some of my favorite products such as the Moroccan Oil line and a mineral Make-up line I love called Mirabella. The pricing is so competitive, check out the service menu here.

Pretty Threading is offering 10% off Threading or blow-dry services for my readers, just mention I Heart Skin Care to redeem! I hope you will enjoy your services as much as I did!

Josie Maran Argan Infinity Cream

I was exited to hear about Josie Maran’s new product, Infinity Cream.  I was completely sold after I watched ‘A Day in the Life of Josie Maran Infinity Cream’ on YouTube (watch video Here). I was secretly hoping to look just as effortlessly beautiful as Josie when using this creamy oil and pictured myself strolling through a farmers market whilst dabbing the product on my elbows. Although that didn’t quite happen, I was still happy with my results and the variety of ways in which this product can be used.

I have personally used Infinity Cream in the following ways:

  • On my bone dry hands and cuticles
  • Fly away hairs
  • Spot treat on the dry areas of my face
  • Eye Shadow – works amazing!
  • Lip moisture

This is extremely concentrated and a little goes a long way. The package fits nice in a purse, since there are so many uses it is a great idea to take it with you! Here are some MORE uses, yes there’s more, from the JM Website:

-Deeply moisturize dry areas of the face.
-Soothe irritated skin caused by rosacea, wind, or sunburn.
-Soften elbows, heels, and other rough patches.
-Keep stray eyebrows in place.
-Smooth flyaways.
-Moisturize at night.
-Prevent razor burn and irritation.
-Prevent skin dehydration during airline travel.
-Apply as a lip conditioner before lipstick.
-Apply over lip stain for a silky finish.
-Lightly dab on eyelids before applying eye shadow.
-Apply before or after using cheek stain to improve blendability.
-Transform powder eye shadow or pigment into a cream by mixing with Infinity Cream.
-Mix with a powder luminizer to create a light, shimmery lip balm.
-Use as a subtle face highlighter to illuminate cheekbones, lips, and brow bones.
-Mix with a powder blush to create a silky cream blush or colored lip balm.
-Hydrate and plump dry, swollen undereyes.
-Apply to fingertips and toes to hydrate and soften cuticles.
-Quench skin post-sunburn.
