Luster Premium White PRO LIGHT Dental Whitening System - live demo video

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Monday!
How is your month of May going? I can tell you that mine is going by fast! School has been out for two weeks and I have already heard "I'm bored" more than I care to comment.

What happened to the good ol' days of "go play outside" or "go discover something new in your old toys"!



Which brings me to today's live demo video of the newly repackaged Luster Premium White PRO LIGHT Dental Whitening System.

This easy to use 3 piece kit is available at Walmart, online at Amazon and mass retailers nationwide. It really is super easy and you can do more than one application per day if you are cramming in beauty treatments before graduation or your summer wedding.





I received this sample from Luster Premium White, it has a new blue packaging which will look different than their old red packaging if you are looking for it online or in some retail markets.

We tested it live on camera - and honestly, it worked!

This kit is available at Walmart or online at Amazon

How Using Reef Safe Sunscreen Can Help Save the Oceans - with MyChelle Sun Protection

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Tuesday! School is out for the summer and my family can not be more delighted! We have a lot of travel booked for this short break from school and all of it will be in the sun.



Today I have 3 sunscreen options for you from MyChelle skincare that are REEF SAFE.
What is reef safe and why should you care?

Well, if you live on planet Earth and care anything about having a healthy ocean and planet, choosing reef safe products are for you.

The coral reef is an integral part of the ocean and it's very delicate. The avobenzone or oxybenzone chemical ingredient in many sunscreen products is polluting the ocean water and killing off coral.  On average, a coral will grow .3 - 2 centimeters per year. That's essentially a pinky fingernail of growth.
You can learn more about coral by visiting the NOAA website here.

So how can you do your part in saving the world one ocean at a time? By choosing non chemical sun products. This doesn't just go for the ocean, this goes for rivers, lakes, and streams!

A reef safe product will not have the chemical ingredients and will rely on a natural barrier ingredient like zinc to provide sun protection.

I received these 3 samples from MyChelle and I am in love! The tinted stick is my favorite and then the liquid for face and body.





Sun Shield Stick SPF 50 Tinted is a mineral-based, water-resistant sunscreen that glides on smoothly with just enough color to enhance any skin tone.

Replenishing Solar Defense SPF 30 is a 100% mineral-based, hydrating body sun protection that melts into skin delivering UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection without leaving behind a white cast or any greasy residue. Rich in Coconut Oil and Shea Butter, skin instantly feels nourished and hydrated. 6 fl oz

Sun Shield Liquid Tint SPF 50 is a non-tinted, 100% mineral sun screen for maximum UVA/UVB broad-spectrum protection. This silky, colorless formula blends weightlessly and seamlessly. Wear alone or use as a sheer primer under foundation to create a smooth, matte finish. Formulated oil-free and recommended for all skin types. 1 fl oz

Made without GMO, Gluten, Parabens, Petroleum, Phthalates, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances, and Artificial Colors. Vegan. Cruelty-free.  This goodness that should go with you everywhere is available on the Mychelle website or Amazon where you can find some tinted shades!

The key to using sunscreen successfully to is apply, reapply and then reapply.  Follow up with a nourishing body balm or lotion after prolonged sun exposure!

I love the 7th Heaven masks for their commitment to clean ingredients and natural resources for skincare!  Plus, each mask is about $2 or less!

On your way home from the Mother's Day parties - perhaps swing by a Walmart of Wagreen's and pick up a couple!

I'm using the Coconut+Clay peel off mask for super hydration - which - after all of the celebrating I've been doing lately, my skin needs it!
