Here's my progress in just 6 weeks of using the product. These photos are unedited! Check out these modeling pics below to see how short my eyelashes were before. I tried eyelash extensions but I didn't like the maintenance or cost. This product really works!

Hi there! 

I hope you're all enjoying a cozy day in with this snowy weather! It's days like these that remind me how much I love good skincare products. My faves lately are shown above: Mario Badescu facial spray with rose water herbs and aloe, Philosophy body scrub and Rodan + Fields lash boost serum. 

Mario Badescu is my go-to European facial (and other treatments) skin spa. They are affordable and have been around forever. They are also a celebrity staple. This skin spray leaves your face moisturizer and hydrated ad gives you that little glow after applying your makeup. It smells great and boost your mood, and it's perfect to take on the plane when the dry air sucks the moisture from your skin. Your skin stays dewy and glowing with this spray! Stay tuned for a post coming soon with my favorite travel products. I of course have this in a travel size I never fly without. 

Philosophy makes fabulous products and their sayings are always fun to read on the bottle too! This snow angel body scrub leaves you clean, smelling good, and rids your skin of dry skin so you can be soft and like new after the shower. Don't forget to pair if with your favorite moisturizer or skin oil. 

I'm new to Rodan + Fields products but my friend and fellow performer Alison Solomon introduced me to the lash boost and eye cream recently and I LOVE these products! The lash boost is a serum applied with a brush to your lash line after cleansing and drying skin in the evening. You sleep with it and wash your face in the morning and the results appear quickly. My lashes grew a ton and I don't need to get eyelash extensions anymore. I never liked the maintenance or cost of them, and with this product with or without mascara, my lashes have the same long effect only they are mine and won't get damaged over time!
